Moaning McLatchie

In the days following the announcement by Nabeel Qureishi about his illness (stomach cancer), this is how the Muslim apologetics world reacted:

That’s a video with hundreds of positive comments and about 18,000 views (and growing). Prayers, well wishing and general reflection on the state of apologetics. Yet, many of us were shocked to see Jonathan McLatchie’s reaction to the news. On the Dividing Line program, several of our names were mentioned, including Br. Yahya, myself and a few others. We took no note of it, there was nothing there that needed to be celebrated. It was a somber time, not a time for “scoring points” against each other or trying to use Nabeel’s illness as a means of “getting mentioned” on social media.


Yet, in the days following Nabeel’s news, there was one person. A notorious individual, universally disliked in Hyde Park, and who has been rebuked several times in person in Newcastle itself whenever he tries to bully the Muslims doing da’wah there; who found a reason to use Nabeel’s illness as a means of promoting himself.


It’s uncouth enough to like such a narcissistic post in the first place, starstruck, really? How obsessive can one be about one’s self? Yet, during this obscene display of self conceitedness, while the rest of us were busy sending well wishes to Nabeel, our friend Jonathan McLatchie found himself counting how many times he was mentioned on the Dividing Line. What kind of person counts how many times their name is mentioned in a video? Well it’s the same kind of person who thinks it’s a good idea to promote themselves by posting 10 photos of themselves just talking to someone else.


I get that he might like Jay, I understand that he may like taking a picture or two of himself, but what kind of individual who abuses debate opponents post-debate and lies about attendance numbers, behaves like this?



Jonathan McLatchie is that kind of person, and that is why we in apologetics cannot take him seriously any longer.

and God knows best.

  1. Nabeel’s illness could be a punishment for his lies, and Allah knows the best.


    • And Ijaz’s illness?
      Is that a reward?


    • The prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said :
      “Never a believer is stricken with a discomfort, an illness, an anxiety, a grief or mental worry or even the pricking of a thorn but Allah will expiate his sins on account of his patience”.

      [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
      The same illness could happen for a believer and disbeliever . However, they are not the same in the sight of Allah.
      Nabeel lied a lot about his ex faith.

    • Sorry, Muhammad didn’t speak English so that quotation of the Hadith is a “waste of space” and inaccurate. Isn’t that right Paul Williams?


  2. No moaning there. I think McLatchie is obviously getting under your skin. Ridiculous to say you can’t take him seriously because of supposed narcissism. Alexander the Great was a vain narcissist. So what? Still one of the greatest warrior leaders of all time.

    I love McLatchie’s parody of the muslim technique of trying to cherry pick the bible to deny the diety of Christ. He said you can prove atheism is correct from the shahada as it contains the words “there is no God …”


  3. Hello Patrice, Do you know the original meaning of the word conceit? It actually means to compare something small to something big. Take care.
