Lo and behold, there's a comment from a former member of JuF who left when he realized what they're really all about. Today he started a blog, named "Shedding Some Light", aimed at exposing the organization. The URL is:
Excerpts from the premier post (emphasis mine):
Glad to see others are learning what I lived for 9 yrs. I am still muslim but no longer part of or have any affiliation with Sheikh Mubarak Ali shah Gilani. I despise his teachings and his wicked ways, they r brain washed into believing that HE visits them spiritually, while all the while he is in pakistan. His followers give up 30% of their earnings to him as he says " its for the sake of God, so give. Indeed if u have ever seen his houses in pakistan you would know where all that 30% money is going. He owns land cruisers, mercedes, huge houses in many cities and virtually owns villages.
Hmm... now Sheikh Gilani doesn't sound like a real Muslim, does he? He says to give, but it doesn't sound like he does; it sounds like he takes. He sounds like a greedy sonofabitch. Running a cult. Yes, a cult. We've heard of other cults, including those that brainwash members into committing suicide. Now, a terrorist cult would have no problem getting members to wear bomb vests while going into town... or climbing onto a plane...
But who would dare question him, he will say: How dare you question the spark of light that came from God.
I knew it was time for me to get the hell away from these brainwashed, radical lying gun running people who call themselves " good citizens".
I say we pay attention to what "Fuqra Hater" has to say.
Perhaps the blognet will help prevent terrorist acts and save lives by encouraging former insiders to come forward and tell the world the truth...
For the enemies of freedom, democracy and the rule of law, the Free People are on their case and will never tire, never surrender, never rest until they are defeated.
We are watching relentlessly. All the time. And our forces are rapidly growing in number.
The enemy will fail. The Free World will prevail!
