The Natal Mercury had some time ago published a scurrilous article blaspheming and insulting Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).  Ebrahim Jadwat who purports to be a ‘Muslim’ deemed it appropriate to support the editor of the Natal Mercury in the legal action instituted by Brother Yusuf Ahmed Deedat. The case is still proceeding.


The fact, that Ebrahim Jadwat is supporting the editor of The Natal Mercury in a matter which concerns the honour of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and which is inextricably interwoven with Islam and the Imaan of every Muslim, loudly testifies to the kufr of this man. How is it ever possible for a genuine Muslim to support a non-Muslim woman who was complicit in defaming and insulting Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) by publishing the scurrilous article?


Hereunder we reproduce Yusuf Deedat’s letter to the attorneys of The Natal Mercury:

Attorney Shepston and Wy Lie

24 Richeford Circle Umhlanga Rocks 

 Re: Equality Court trial date 6th May 2019 Case no 30/2017 

Dear Mr. Palmer, 

1)      I refer to the above matter. 

2)      This morning at the Durban Magistrate’s Court the name, Mr E. M. Jadwat was called out 3 times. 

3)      Mr E. M. Jadwat is your client’s star witness against me in the above case.

He is the first muslim in South Africa, who joins with Mrs Yogas Nair to have insulted the Holy Prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). 

4)      The court was thereafter informed that this was the 4thtime, that Mr Jadwat failed to turn up for his case. A cost order against Mr Jadwat was given thereafter. 

5)      The point here is that this STAR MUSLIM WITNESS is going to let you down. Mr Jadwat has a reputation of saying things that he does not believe. 

6)      On the day of the trial, Mr Jadwat, I guarantee will be nowhere to be found. 

7)      This reminds me of a bible verse in the Book of Mark chapter 14 verse 50, that in the most critical juncture in the Life of Jesus (peace be upon him) ‘ALL HIS DISCIPLES FORSOOK HIM AND FLED” 

8)      Watch Mr E. M. Jadwat do the same to you clients, Mrs Yogas Nair and Dr Iqbal Surve. 

Yours faithfully 

Yousuf Ahmed Deedat
