Over the past few months quite a few people have contacted me to ask if I know who the seemingly shy people behind the Ummah Pulse website really are. I have responded by saying that I honestly don’t know but from the general tenor of the articles they publish he/she/they seem to be writing mainly from a traditionalist Deobandi perspective.
A couple of months ago, the Salaam website ran a short item entitled ‘Scarlet Pimpernel Karima Hamdan’ trying to entice one of Ummah Pulse’s elusive writers out into the open. Without success, alas.
But wait. Just today I received a tip from a good friend allegedly in the know saying that the people behind Ummah Pulse are not entirely disconnected from the people who used to be behind the website at this link. Could it be true?
