It is natural that equally detractive forces should came into play and these tend to impede the blessing of Khilafat through various obstacles. Through doubts and machinations, criticism and propaganda they try to cause disturbance in the minds of believers and force them away from their goal. History bears witness to the fact that this type of opposition has been faced by both eras of Khilafat‑i‑Rashida. They were attacked not only by outsiders but also by those professing to be within the fold of Islam but nevertheless have obviously been contaminated by wayward western philosophy and shallow permissiveness and democracies. Some non‑chalant hypocrites to whom any discipline is virile also adorn these galleries. These attacks are of various descriptions, but today we shall confine ourselves to only five of the most important allegations and try to give a realistic appraisal of them.
