In my eyes, the person who has committed a wronge is Mr. Muzzafar, because Islam tells us the following:
If we see or hear about someone else committing a sin, we should always try to ignore it. Instead of spreading it, we should hide it and keep it a secret. It is reported that the Prophet :SAW: has said:
Whosoever covers (the sins of) a Muslim, Allah covers (his sins) on the Day of Judgment. (Reported by Bukhari)
If we find it too difficult to keep it secret, the most we are allowed to do is discuss the issue with the person, in private, and try to encourage them to stop committing the sin(s). Allah has said:
The believers, men and women, are Auliyâ’ (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm orders one to do), and they forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islâm has forbidden). (Quran, 71:9)
(The only exception to this is if we find out that someone has committed a crime that has left someone injured or killed, or in which something was stolen or someone was denied something to which they were entitled to. In these cases, we MUST make the information public so that the person is brought to justice.)

One thing we must not do when we find out about someone else’s sins is discuss them and gossip about them. Why? Because doing so will considered backbiting, which has been compared to eating the flesh (meat) of our own dead brother. Allah has said:
O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful. (Quran, 49:12)


Islam tells us to ignore the sin someone is committing? This is what happens to “Muslims” when they listen to pseudoscholars.

Allah, in the Quran, commands us to “enjoin good and forbid evil”. We are given the example of Jews who broke the covenant by casting their nets on Friday to bypass the “no work” covenant with Allah. What did Allah do? He punished both the ones who cast the nets and the ones who remained silent about it. The only ones who were spared were the ones who spoke up against the sin (openly, publicly).

Ma sha Allah, Br. Daniel said the haqq. I am just a lay person, and even I knew that the whole fiasco about NAK was wrong. Even if he did do any of those things, it was a private matter and nothing to do with aqeedah so why the witch hunt? And since when is it ok to make public private conversations in this manner? NAK could have been talking to multiple sisters, he is allowed up to four wives. And even when they mentioned that he allegedly told the sister to keep it quiet as it could ruin his reputation, well yeah! Anyone in is position would do the same, why want to ruin the dawah?
