I’m a Muslim..!
“Blacks, Asians, whites — we all live in the same community,’ he said. ‘Why do we have to kill one another? Why are we doing this? Step forward if you want to lose your sons. Otherwise, calm down and go home — please.”
“I’m a Muslim. I believe in divine fate and destiny, and it was his destiny and his fate, and now he’s gone,’ he said. ‘And may Allah forgive him and bless him.”
In Islam; Moral Laws will not survive without appropriate Penal Laws.. This is where the pitfalls happened, deviating our marvelous urban and civic achievements and endeavors from the true essence and merits. Not only the recent riots of London were resultant of such critical absence, but also when the passionate expressions for protest or change would step into violent chaotic forms..The history of Mankind was mostly driven by religious fanatics; which had lift great scares in memories and heritage as well. Unfortunately, most of the committed atrocities were justified by twisted religious codes and their associated penal articles of both sides. During the last 30 years, in order to introduce adequate management of the faith issues; academics, educators, psychologists and journalists had collectively downgraded the religious contributions from being epistemic aggregates into ancillary ones..
Notably, all religions would easily exercise the coexistence, yet bargained by their hysterical and radical followers. Overwhelmingly; cautiousness had controlled the religious contents in any debate; which titled the easy choice of media and politicians, rather than battling the incorrectness or deviations within the religious contexts. Ministers of all faiths were also short to emphasis on integration rather than confrontation. Religions were victimized by their own followers, in a spiral syndrome..
When the media community had celebrated the “Raap” as expression form of the new generations, they marked the epistemic anarchy rather than human rights. Raap culture had come with non innovative music, ill phonetics of spoken languages, odd expressions that mix decency with naughtiness, following the violent bullies and only accept mentoring from the gang leaders. Then, authority of elders, parents, teachers, police and intellectuals had systematically destructed..!
Tariq Jahan, who had expressed the common perspective of ordinary Muslim towards life and death matters; was widely celebrated by the Media. It was not the sudden discovery of an unknown side of Muslims and their “confusing” culture; but a shock by spontaneous, naive and authentic reactions in a moment of severe emotional content. No wonder that some columnists would come in a while stigmatizing Mr. Jahan of emotional, parentally and/or psychoneurotic deficiencies..!!
His simple words had concluded the Islamic faith in few minutes. I pit that none of the prominent Muslim scholars would express the same in better and influential words. The whole episode would point to the need to launch more debates not to align religious faiths, but to get to know each other..
The recent riots of London are now pointing to the failure of theories that had condemned the conventional up-bringing and mentoring codes.. Without a penal code, no morals can be established.. Without discipline there is no respect.. Without respect, social order will be a controversial political agenda.. Without social fairness, poverty will never be eliminated.. Nevertheless; Islamic teachings tell that with poverty, all evils are alive..!
