Response to the propaganda of unjust infidels


QUESTION: How should we respond to the propaganda of unjust infidels?

ANSWER: Propaganda is the illicit child of demagogy, which I have condemned before. Response to it should not be with a like weapon; we should respond to it with truth and honesty. A grain of truth burns away a heap of lies.

Say “God,” and then leave them to their game of plunging into vanities (6:91).

The best, cleverest trick is to abandon trickery.
