Who is Qamar-ul Huda?

Qamar-ul Huda is an American religious scholar. He is a senior program officer in the United States Institute of Peace Religion and Peacemaking program. He is the author of "Striving for Divine Union: Spiritual Exercises for Suhrawardi Sufis". He wrote a personal account of the new demands for his expertise following the attack on the USA on September 11, 2001. He was one of three American Professors of Religion who drafted letters to be submitted to Murat Kurnaz's Administrative Review Board. Their letter assured his Board that the Islamic missionary group Tablighi Jamaat was a peaceful apolitical group. Kurnaz's affiliation with Tablighi Jamaat was one of the justifications for his continued detention in the Guantanamo Bay detainment camps, in Cuba.
