I've been on quite alot of muslim forums, and i've noticed that alot of them have quite alot of fitna with people backbiting, slandering, being rude to another and in some cases, making tafkir on fellow muslims.
In some cases, i've noticed that the moderators do not shut down such fitna, not sure if that's because they are busy or because they kind of support what the people are saying on their forums. allahu alim.
but, what i want to know is, if i become a moderator on a muslim forum, would i be held accountable for any fitna that occurred on the forum?? given that:
a) i would provide a place for the fitna to occur, and
b) if fitna were to occur, i may or may not put a stop to it.
so, say in an extreme case, a member of a forum made tafkir on a fellow muslim.....and i didn't reprimand or moderate the person's post. would then on the day of judgement, would it be as if i was responsible for it??
note - i'm just talking about muslim forums in general, not necessarily this one.
