    Lovely. Will people learn courage? You said many things, people in India don’t dare to say, in spite of they knowing them to be true.

    I always felt that you are a terrific reformist thinker who is very genuinely and honestly concerned about a positive, humane, goodness shining face of a great religion like Islam though many having obsolete inhuman interpretation of it feels you are the opposite. Your straight direct sharp delivery of criticism do not go well with the self conscious Leaders of Religious Empire who thinks they are the ultimate and they are last words in interpreting the holy book. You challenge them they feel and they can’t stand that. Problem is misinterpretations and the Interpretatirs who do it and make a mess out of it which they force upon the ordinary God living individuals curtailing their human rights. You are seen as one who is learned and opposing this ignorant misuse. Many TAREK Fates are required for men and especially women who are real worshippers of Allah. Now people including women in Islam has started rising and raising pertinent questions about their rights which are denied by these wrong Interpreters and it is just matter of time for their success. Reformists are very essential when issues are related to human kind and when there is urgent requirement of it to help human beings live and worship their respective God. You are without any doubt a very big Contributor to human kind at large and particularly to Islam. All the best, Sir.

    In the middle but .. “Like a Lion”.
    One question though remained unanswered. You talked about “Who own Mecca and Madina”. What is the answer to that?

      In 1924, Saudi Arabia (Sultanate of Nejd at the time) invaded the Kingdom of Hejaz and occupied Mecca and Medina. That occupation continues to this date with not one Muslim speaking against it.

        90%of india is forcibly occupied by moghuls start war of liberation here also.

          April 5, 2016 at 8:03 AM

          You still are in the mindset that you as an invading Mogul occupy 90% of India?

          Wake up.

        Tarek Ji, With due respect to you (you are a Hero), I just want to make few points.
        “The Pagan Arabs were a tolerant people”. -Ram Swaroop in Hindu View of Islam
        The Prophet did all his preachings to the Arabs around him at that time. He create the foundation of Islam with and for the invading Arabs who are fighting for land, wealth or life at that time. The idea of the only and last messenger of God, is the breeding ground for more intolerance later. Arabs starts adopting the prophets messages which are tweaked to fit the Arabs situation at that time and think everybody else who don’t believe in Islam is their enemy.
        So although the Arabs invaded the Kingdom of Hejaz and occupied the land of Mecca/Medina, but they are the true disciples of the Prophet, who come in direct contact with the Prophet. It is the irony of the situation is that although they are the true disciples but they are not – because they could not interpret or understand the Prophet really in the spiritual sense. The Prophet must be in deep pain seeing the situation of Islam in today’s time and must be anguishing the cult he left behind as his legacy.

    People like Tarek Fatah fail to realise that Indians in general and Indian Muslims in particular don’t need to learn patriotism from a ‘traitor’ like him. A person, who has struggled to return to Pakistan since 1989 wants Indian Muslims to learn all about nationalism from him.

    Indian Muslims are and will be proud of India’s multiculturism and one intolerant foreigner can’t and mustn’t be allowed to poison the peaceful co-existence of people from different faiths.

      April 5, 2016 at 8:00 AM


      Is that why you belive in and teach your children about the sanctity of armed jihad and Sharia law?

      Is this why you celebrate Mohamed bin Qasim and Mahmud of Ghazni as your heroes?

    • April 5, 2016 at 8:18 PM

      Tarekh Fatah is a great Indian and a true patriot. Those that believe/s/d in the two nation theory are the real traitors/”turncoats”, for it is them who divided India for an artificial entity like Pakistan. I pray Tarek Sahib has a long healthy life and continues in his work to enlighten Muslims all over the globe, including in India.

    April 5, 2016 at 7:48 AM

    Tarek ji,

    From where you are getting your strength?

    Watching you I believe that some of us are bold and stronger enough then rest of us. Humanity still exists!

    May I please ask you – who is the most influential person for you? Your Idol is recent times? And you are really inspired by him? And second question – if you have to suggest one book which you admire most, which one will that be?

    You resemble my late maternal grandfather when he was your age. You also speak fearlessly like him. He was in the freedom struggle, started out leftist like you, and then became a rigid nationalist. He was also a total non-conformist.

    It is comforting to have your presence in our country, and witness this sort of fearlessness. And to top it all, I find you very cute 🙂 (not meant to be condescending).

    But I fear for you. People have been fatally attacked for a lot less. I do hope you have some security around yourself.

    I think bracketing Tarek Fatah with Tasleema Nasreen by the Press was a good thing, though unintentionally. Both are outspoken in pointing out the crimes against minorities in their parent country. Your outspokenness has an upanishadic flavour to me, which in your words, is the conduct expected from a Muslim. As an Indian, indebted to you Sir!

    Tarek sahab,

    Engaging interview with candid views. On the one hand you talk of the historical and roots bond of Indians and Pakistanis and that partition was a mistake, while on the other hand you advise of no dialogue or discussions with Pakistan. And that the troubles will disappear once Pakistan disintegrates. Should India just wait until Pakistan evaporates ? How do you see this playing out ? Assuming Pakistan does disintegrate sooner than later, how do you foresee the geo political scenario shaping ? Will chunks of Pakistan unite (reunite) with India ? What, in your view will be best for the peoples of either countries ? Hope this does not sound too hypothetical and thanks for sharing your views.

      I think the first step would be to disarm Pak of its nukes. Until such time no disintegration will occur. I must say I have no idea how it can be done.

      This rogue country uses these nukes not so much as a deterrent against percieved Indian aggression but rather to blackmail the West into supplying aid in fear of these WMDs falling in the hands of extremists. As a result the military establishment grows increasingly powerful. How does the world deal with the largest most organised gang of thugs with nukes? ponder that my friend!

    Hello Sir, I started following you in 2014 and would like to salute to your bravery and courage.

    I think it is so human to get agitated because of stupid questions (ref :Rifat jawed 26.30 min). I believe if you answer these stupid question in a calm and composed manner it would be a tight slap on their faces who ask such useless questions.

    This is just a humble suggestion from your fan.

    Dear sir,
    Your prediction about ISI and Pakistani JIT on Pathankot is 100% correct. Indian Govt. have given permission to a ‘Thief’ by considering cop to investigate this matter.

    My question to you sir, being an Atheist is a good or bad thing in your perspective?
    Isn’t it a 4th step towards deradicalization?

    @Tariq Fateh Sir,

    I am really great fan of you. I am following you since one year. My question is differ from others, I like to ask Why no Muslim scholar ever success defeat to Ali Sina founder of Faitherfreedom. Do you know his claims regarding Muhammad & Islam. He remain unchallenged till now. I am following him since 5 years. I am not afraid to say I am fan of him. He is truthful person.

    Sir, i did watch your show on ABP news and i agree on most of your views. Well,most of the Indian Muslims are hypocrite and sadly the educated ones are hypocrite of highest order, in this case the Muslim journo and many more.

    secondly, you were pondering,why many Hindus like Hitler and on the other hand they like Jews.
    Well,look it separately you will find the correct answer. That is they like Hitler for his love towards Germany(Motherland) and Jews for like the Hindus,they are pretty ancient , rare and their resilience against the Islamist terrorism or jihad movement to annihilate Jews or Kafir.

      Tarik knew his ancestors were Indian not Arab. Why will he hate their Hindu brethren? Pakistan & Indian Muslim very faithful to Arabs, their culture and copy them in every aspect of life.

    It is strange that so called “Senior Journalists” like Ashok Wankhede are actually speaking for liars like Zakir Naik. It just shows how superficial Mr Ashok’s knowledge is. He is completely oblivious to the fact that Zakir Naik just twists the meanings of most things he quotes for his own benefit. He definitely does so when quoting Hindu scriptures and I am sure he must be doing the same for Quran although I dont have enough knowledge about it. But as far as Vedas, Purans etc are concerned Zakir Naik is an outright liar. This short video is a perfect example.

    • Abdu
      April 10, 2016 at 6:50 AM


      Zakir Naik gets money from Arabs and he propagates agenda of Arabs in India.. He is exposed by Dr. Ali Sina & Agniveer many times. He has sold his souls to Arabs for money.

      Please Visit here to know more about him

    You just blasted pro jihadists on the channel. The world needs peace. Indian Muslims are good in general. But I fail to understand as to why they get so easily brainwashed by a section of fringe elements.I also saw you taking on those Pakistani Generals on Arnab’s Show on Times Now. You were absolutely right sir.International Community needs to step in and liberate Baloch people.

    When these bastards(like the one in the blue shirt) ask you cheap questions, we (almost every indian ) feel very bad.

    These kind of persons are sleeper cells of congress and other political parties and their sole aim to participate in debates is to insult you. We don’t see you as a foreign national as you are one of us. And if some bastard irritates you like this, hit him very hard by exposing him, make him shit in his pants, so that he and others will not dare to ask you such cheap questions.

    Please don’t ever feel that some indian dont like you because of these kind of bastards. We like you very much. And one suggestion for these kind of journalists cum bastards, ask them counter questions like when they have joined sleeper cell of anti-india brigade.

    Best wishes

      Bravo Deepak, I am impressed by your comment. Brilliant use of language. Making people shit their pants and referring to them as bastards. Thank you, it confirms how closely related Indians and Pakis are. Here in the West they display their similarities too, by driving cabs – Khan and Khanna together forever. 🙂

    Hi Mr. Fatah,

    I am an American of Indian origin. Having migrated very young I did not know many things about the history and circumstances of partition of the sub-continent and the mindset of the vast majority of muslims. Your talks on these subjects are fascinating and I try to listen to you as much as possible. I would love to have you talk about Kemal Ataturk who recognized that the Arabic language and religious interpretations were causing havoc. His social reforms like abolition of the khilafat, separation of church and state, usage of the Turkish language, emancipation of the women – among many other reforms – were the solution to making Turkey into a modern state. Why is the government of India unable to (1) declare J&K as part of integral India, and (2) abolish the muslim personal law. These will initially cause a lot of rift but go a long way to stabilize secular and forward looking principles of India.

    Helloz Mr Fatah,

    Janab, I have been watching and following you and your videos on Youtube before you came to India. You sometimes remind me of the great master Osho Rajneesh, the fearlessness with which he confronted all religions, traditions, blind beliefs and customs. I was listening to “Koplen Phir Phoot Ayen”, discourse #3 of Osho (seek/fast forward the audio to time – 1 hour 5 minutes), in which he was speaking beautifully on Mansoor Al-Hillaj and his declaration of An-Al-Haque, and I immediately thought of sharing it with you. If you get time from your schedule do listen to it. Its available on http://www.Oshoworld.com

    Compliments and Best wishes,

    So should Christian Indians also choose Indian names instead of Western ones? I don’t think you were given the opportunity to answer that question in the uproar.

    Mr. Tarek you are right. Keep it on and you are most welcome in INDIA. True secularism is dying nowadays. We need a realistic mindset, not fake secularism.
