RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

Azad Ali is a British fundamentalist Muslim involved with various Islamic organisations.

Ali is a supporter of sharia, and has said that he does not agree with democracy if it comes at the expense of implementing sharia.[1] He also supports Anwar al-Awlaki, commenting that "I really do love him for the sake of Allah, he has an uncanny way of explaining things to people which is endearing",[2] and is a fan of Hamas, arguing that Ismail Haniyeh deserves to become Caliph.[3]

After a documentary exposing his views was aired on Channel 4, Ali threatened the programme's reporter over the official Islamic Forum of Europe radio station: "We've got a picture of you and a lot more than you thought we had", he said. "We've tracked you down to different places. And if people are gonna turn what I've just said into a threat, that's their fault, innit?"[4]

In February 2012 he was elected vice chair of Unite Against Fascism,[5] further proof of just what a dog's dinner that organisation has ended up as.
