How baseless? It may be rude to ask whether you are a thief or racist, but that doesn't make it baseless. It may, though, be baseless because the answer is pretty well bound to be "no", whether the answer is true or a lie.
So are you saying that there is no point to sum's question about your beliefs, because you have to say yes, you believe Allah knows your thoughts, whether that is true or not?
