Farid Esack Explained Farid Esack born in Wynberg, Cape Town is a South African Muslim scholar, writer, and political activist known for his opposition to apartheid, his appointment by Nelson Mandela as a gender equity commissioner, and his work for inter-religious dialogue.

While still a child, he and his mother were forcibly relocated as "non-Whites" under the provisions of the Group Areas Act. At age nine, Esack joined the revivalist Tablighi Jamaat movement, and by age 10 he was teaching at a madrasah religious school. At the age of 15 he received a scholarship to pursue Islamic studies in Pakistan. By the time he left for Pakistan in he had also become the local chairman of an anti-apartheid group, National Youth Action, and had been detained several times by security police.

As he noted in the introduction to his book On Being a Muslim, some of his fellow students later joined the Taliban in Afghanistan. Having grown up with Christian neighbors, Esack became critical of discrimination against Christians and other religious minorities in Pakistan. He, along with three other members, left the organization in and helped form the Muslim anti-apartheid group Muslims Against Oppression, which later changed its name to Call of Islam, which became an important affiliate of the United Democratic Front.

Esack addressed hundreds of protest meetings, formed ties with inter-faith opponents of apartheid, and became a leading figure within the World Conference of Religions for Peace. This fulfilled his ambition of uniting the two halves of his personality — the religious with secular activism.

He addressed rallies, conducted political funerals, and participated in inter-faith organisations opposed to apartheid. He became an important leader in the World Conference on Religion and Peace.

I walk away from your shitty racist and Islamophobic expectations that whenever your chickens come home to roost then I must feign horror". Yes, I feel sorry for the victims on whom the shit falls.
