For example Khomeini once made a statement which was published in the Tehran times (Kitaab be Noujawanaan - P8) that if he conquers Madina Munawwarah, he will remove the two idols (Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) besides Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him). I am certain that no believer will accept such a statement against the great luminaries of Islam. Brother Amin, are we then to condemn only Khomeini and condone Mawdudi knowing well that Mawdudi was a close friend of Khomeini and was sympathetic to his course. In a book titled, 'Two brothers - Maududi and Khomeini' page 129, the following statement of Dr Ahmad Farouk Maududi (son of Abul-A'ala Maududi) was published in Roz Naame, Lahore - 29 September 1979, "Allama Khomeini had a very old and close relationship with Abba Jaan (father). Aayaatullah Khomeini translated his (fathers) books in Farsi and included it as a subject in Qum. Allama Khomeini met my father in 1963 during Hajj and my father's wish was to create a revolutionary in Pakistan similar to Iran. He was concerned about the success of the Iranian revolution till his last breath.'
People who blindly accuse great scholar Maudoodi only serves anti-islam, the contribution of Syed Maudoodi, Banna and Qutb was un-comparable that directly challenged colonial forces while ulemah standstill towards modern attacks on Islam and Muslims which effectively countered by them, and they organized groups that still uncomparable. Othodox and salaf called people only served one way or other to this imperialism, and they had nothing to counter anti-islam forces even today.
No harm in opposing the Wetsern Imperialism and Colonial Forces but the methods must be adopted which are given in Quran and Hadith [i.e. As per Mr. Shamim - Wahi Ghair Matlu i.e. Bukhari and other Hadiths] not the other way around e.g. Anarchy. Please tell me if this so-called Reformist Mawdoodi was a genuine scholar and all those which you call Orthodox or Salafi were fake and toadies of the Imperial Forces then why the hell Mawdoodi accepted the King Faisal Award from the Saudi King [as per Mawdoodi Malookiyat - Kings are no allowed in Islam].
After declaring picture-taking ‘haram’, Mawdoodi says: “Photographs of leaders and public meetings do not qualify to be permitted or essential.” however His own, and his party’s pictures are a commonplace in the newspapers. (Rasail-o-Masail, Vol 1, page 120)
On the same page he termed pictures of the kings on the coins as idol-worshiping. However, when he himself was awarded the Shah Faisal Award, the medal had King Faisal’s image engraved on it and his pictures wearing it around his neck are a historical record.
Regarding your first allegation that we blindly target Mawdoodi. You should read Quran and read it attentively regarding whoever you follow because Quran negates your approach of Blindly Respecting Mawdoodi and other Hizbis and Qutubis despite of the fact that they frequently and shamelessly insulted the Prophets [PBUT] and Companions [May Allah be pleased wit them] of the Prophet Mohammad [PBUH]. Quran stops us to follow Scholars blindly as if these Qutubis and Hizbiz are some kind of god. Methods of Mawdoodi and Jamat-e-Islami for Dawah have nothing to do with Islam, their methods are simply called Politics and Worshipping of lowerself.
اتَّخَذُواْ أَحْبَـرَهُمْ وَرُهْبَـنَهُمْ أَرْبَاباً مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَالْمَسِيحَ ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَمَآ أُمِرُواْ إِلاَّ لِيَعْبُدُواْ إِلَـهاً وَحِداً لاَّ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ سُبْحَـنَهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
They have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only One Allah. There is no Allah save Him. Be He Glorified from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him)! [AL-TAWBA (REPENTANCE, DISPENSATION) Chapter 9 Verse 31]
