I am extremely Pained to see your revised edition of THE MEANING OF HOLY KORAN by ABDULLAH YUSUF ALI.
Dear sir this is a REFERENCE BOOK,to revise and update an original work is an un accept and
scholarly dishonesty.
Dear sir I got my copy from Madina,Saudi Arabia which has a completely controlled press,This was the only free gift I accept and excused myself from gift of other books which were presented to me stenched of SALAFISM ..Dear sir I beseech you to be truthful and not play around with original Islamic scholarship,you are publishing from US enjoying the protection of US constitution but the American scholarship is at its zenith ,such attempts to stain Islam with Salifism is receiving worldwide condemnation specially US.Lastly I would like add that Late Abdullah Yusuf Ali is my countryman,how dare you distort a reference book.
