FB ‘banned in Pakistan? Some people just need to grow up…

I read this morning that a high court in Pakistan had “banned” facebook because of some stupid fan page that asked visitors to draw caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

WTF? Muslims, esp those in Pakistan, unfortunately did exactly what the creators of that page wanted: got provoked, inflamed youth even more, and if anything raised the profile of an otherwise idiotic page. My friend Adil Najam (of Boston University) accurately summarizes what muslim protests accomplished. I too wish I didn’t even have to write this.

Here’s my 2 cents worth if any protesting muslims are reading this –  Does a hateful FB page really deserve this level of attention? is this the biggest issue facing muslims right now? Do we really need to care what some loonies on some website have to say/do/incite? Hateful speech is not to be encouraged, but can a troubled and struggling society like Pakistan really afford to be concerned about websites, movies, cartoons to this extent? Have we lost our sense of priorities? Pakistan, and muslims in general, must first deal with dissuaded youth, internal violence, cross-border terrorism, illiteracy, unemployment, inflation, and severe lack of health care, power or water.

This FB-related news item comes after observing several days of back and forth on another email list regarding the young Lebanese lady (Rima Fakih) who got crowned as the Miss USA. I have my own issues with beauty pageants and such but having a Muslim or an Arab participating in it has nothing to do with it. Do we really have to judge her now as a bad person because she grew up in this country and decided to participate in a contest that at least on its hallowed marketing materials claims to promote young women “who compete with hope of advancing their careers, personal and humanitarian goals, and as women who seek to improve the lives of others.” She now has a platform to possibly do some good, even if just in words. So let her, please.

Some people just need to grow up…and get their heads screwed on right so they can focus on better priorities.

    HA EXACTLY. D: Like facebook is not LIFE and seriously, the high court is so unjust. like they’re people dying because of violence and women getting raped with no injustice. did they bother doing anything about them? they make me so proud (yup, sarcasm) :/

    • zareen ahmed says:

      you all people just think about this life .for you the dignity of HOLY PROPHET pbuh will not be a mtter of importance but for some other people it is a matter of life and death…as RASOOOL PAK s.a.w.w. said..”you cant be be successful(in this world and after) uptill i m not the most beloved to u..
      then where do u think u know islam>u people who live in foreign countries dnot even know the basics of islam…declares the such nasty views…u are pathetic really…go learn something about islam first and then say anything else…and one thing more…this world would not last but think about the fire that will wait if HOLY PROPHET s.a.w.w just left our side on the judjement day.

      • tru677 says:

        Ur absolutely correct……The faith of Muslims is much weak and this is the vital reason for our devastation..
        Only strong Belief in Allah Almighty is da remedy….Fear of Allah will make all things rite…………………..

      • zareen…..i m 100% agree with u,it is
        our unfortune as a muslim that we give
        importance to everything exept the respect
        and worthy of our beloved holy prophet
        Muhammad(S.A.W.W),think that for purposes
        our nation specially youth is using face
        -book,98% use is that boys are searching
        girls and girls are looking for boys to
        chat with,this is much destructive for
        our moral and islamic values.

  3. Rao Imran says:

    I do not agree with the views of the writer because being a Muslim it is our duty to to follow the sayings of Allah and after that of our Holy Prophet(saw)so it is our duty to discourage such events and happenings which are somehow hurting the religious beliefs by disgracing religious personalities of Muslims around the world we should protest against all these because we want to show those who are responsible for such deeds that we do care and we are the true followers of the only true religion on the face of earth we are not like them, they make fun of their religion and religious personalities and no one says nothing but its us the Muslims not some non practicing Christian or Hindu who doesn’t care whatever happens to religion.

    brother we just want to live our lives according to our social norm i don’t know why u people try to pinch us repeatedly . we don’t have any hate for any one we never try to interfere in any one’s religion & we never try to hit any one religiously . because or Holy Prophet(PBUH) never allow us to do that. then why u people are irritating us again & again

    OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. TO EVERYONE WHO IS ACTUALLY AGREES WITH THE BAN. I mean. SERIOUSLY GUYS, WAKE THE HELL UP. There is so much injustice going on in this country. A COUNTRY LIKE PAKISTAN CANNOT AFFORD TO DIE AFTER PAGES LIKE FACEBOOK. FACEBOOK IS NO BIG DEAL. And banning youtube was even more RIDICULOUS. I mean there you are, there is NO access to the outside world like this. I mean, if you ban everything which is against your beliefs or offends you, THEN YOU’RE JUST STUPID. I MEAN COME ON. HOW THE HELL WOULD YOU KNOW WHATS GOING ON IN THE WORLD IF YOU BAN SITES? DO YOU GUYS WANT TO BE LIKE NAIVE LITTLE KIDS WHO LIVE IN THEIR DREAM FANTASIES? SERIOUSLY, WAKE UP. THERE IS OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF AROUND HERE.
    I never heard of the high court taking any action against women getting raped AND BLAMED FOR IT TOO. I didnt see the high court take ANY action against child labour or people KILLING EACH OTHER FOR NO REASON. I dont see the government even CARING ABOUT THE TALIBAN PROBLEM OR UNEMPLOYMENT OF INFLATION OR HOMELESS PEOPLE. YET FOR SOME REASON, THEY CARE SO MUCH ABOUT A SITE LIKE FACEBOOK? I DIDNT SEE ANY OF THESE PEOPLE PROTESTING AGAINST CHILD LABOUR OR ANYTHING IMPORTANT. YOU GUYS ARE SO SELFISH. I DONT BELIEVE ANY OF YOU.
    Besides this, I heard people are encouraging other to give their lives up because of THAT ONE PAGE ON FACEBOOK. THIS IS WHY MUSLIMS ARE HATED ALL OVER THE WORLD. AT EVERY LITTLE THING, THEY JUST GO AROUND KILLING EACH OTHER. THEY WOULD KILL THEMSELVES FOR SOME LOWLY PAGE. DONT YOU GUYS HAVE A LIFE? WHAT HAPPENED TO ISLAM BEING A RELIGION OF PEACE? SO MUCH FOR BEING GOOD MUSLIMS. SO MUCH FOR BEING RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS. HAVE FUN BEING EVEN MORE DEGRADED ALL OVER THE WORLD AND LIVING IN YOUR FANTASY WORLDS.
    If you think youre trying to protect islam by KILLING EACH OTHER and BANNING PAGES, YOURE WRONG. DID YOU TRY TALKING TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAID ALL THAT STUFF ABOUT THE PROPHET (SAW) ? DID YOU? I DONT THINK SO. YOU GUYS NEED TO CALM DOWN AND THINK RATIONALLY. DONT BE SO EMOTIONAL. ITS NOT GOING TO DO US ANY GOOD. THE WRONG IMPRESSION PEOPLE HAVE GOT OF ISLAM IS BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS. THANK YOU FOR RUINING MINE AND YOUR RELIGION. SERIOUSLY, WAKE UP. IF YOU OPEN YOUR EYES, YOU’LL SEE THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG.

      I think you need to wake the hell up!
      just answer my simple question
      If I’ll make a cartoon of your mommy & daddy, & spread it all over the world, what will you do?
      you must will try to something really bad with me.
      but you cant feel this in the same way for OUR MOST BELOVED Hazrat Muhammad (SALLALAH-0-ALEH-E-WASALLAM). I really feel sorry for you.
      yes we are facing problems, but you tell me what you did real good for Pakistan???
      I bet you watch Indian movies, Hollywood movies & you must like to looks like them.
      I’ll pray for you my dear, & i’ll also pray for those who think in the same manner just like you.
      I think you got some skills to be a Politician, stop trying to be a star, think over it, may be one day you will some sort of Minister & keep fillin your vault.
      HaHaHA……

    • Fariha says:

      You have written most of your reply in CAPS as if AGITATED- ironic though, isn’t it, when a ban on a website that should NOT have been given any attention, has you so worked up; whereas your advice is that we let an insult to someone so close and personal to us as our holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWS), pass?

      I hear you.

    • Shaikh says:

      m wid u Aqsa..true said !!!

  8. Rao Imran says:

    I feel sorry about you Aqsa, I do not agree with your views at all for multiple reasons, first of all we all should feel our religious responsibilities because we are Muslims after all, and to know about our responsibilities we should know our religion first. In your case I am feeling that you give priority to your freedom over your religion. I am not sure if you are a practicing Muslim or not but even an ordinary Muslim could feel the pain about this incident which you can’t feel, but let me tell you one thing this is the most demanding thing for the moment to record our protest to the outer non Muslim world to show them that we care and we would never permit such acts about Islam in any form and for this if we have to boycott the internet we would do so no matter what kind of loss we have to face may Allah(swt) give you such heart to feel the pain which all Muslims are feeling today. By the way, no hard feelings, if I have been harsh but this matter is so serious that I couldn’t control my words.

  9. Aqsa says:

    Ermm Rao, no need to feel sorry ‘about me’ okay? I’m not here to look for sympathy or pity because I don’t need any so please. 🙂
    No one was talking about freedom here. I really think you didnt understand what I was saying. And yes, I am a practicing muslim and you have no right to judge my faith.
    And just tell me one thing, how the hell is blocking a website protecting our religion? I mean, that page still exists right? Its just that Pakistanis cant see it. Is that really enough? I mean, I actually used to talk to the people who made the page and try to convince them against it. You just dont have to go and get all emotional. This is like you guys think just because you cant see the page anymore, it doesnt exist or something. I dont consider this protecting my religion FROM ANYWHERE. If this really was protecting Islam, I would be more than happy to do so.
    And next time, please try to understand what I’m saying before writing irrelevant stuff. 🙂
    No hard feelings here either.
    Thanks. 🙂

    • Misha says:

      the reason for banning fb is not that muslims should not be able to see the page that insults the Holy Prophet pbuh. the reason is to show the world and islam-haters that we care about our religion and if anyone attacks our religion, we care enough to stand against them. we are not as weak and vulnerable as they think. if someone is insulting our religion, it doesnt mean that we shouldnt do anything about it JUST because we have other problems in our country. when other people attack our religion, that IS a problem. and do you think the problems in our country are any more imortant than protecting our religion? if someone is doing something wrong, we need to stop them by our hands or actions, if we cant do that, then we need to stop them by our words, if we cant do that, then we need to think of that wrong thing as wrong in our heart, and if we cant even do that, then we cannot call ourselves muslims.

  10. Ramish says:

    i would like to repeat some of the questions asked by the writer of this article:

    1.Does this page really deserve this level of attention?

    2.is this the biggest issue facing muslims right now?

    3.Do we really need to care what some loonies on some website have to say/do/incite?

    4.Hateful speech is not to be encouraged, but can a troubled and struggling society like Pakistan really afford to be concerned about websites, movies, cartoons to this extent?

    5.Have we lost our sense of priorities?

    my friends, making images doesn’t even matter to us, but if i draw a funny image of ur dad or a naked image of ur mum, i think tht too shudnt matter. Right?

    Islam strictly prohibits depictions of Prophet Mohammed (SAW) as blasphemous. He [the Prophet saw] instructed his companions not to draw a picture of him, and this has been taken as a general prohibition.

    Quran says:
    There is no god but God; Muhammad is the messenger of God.

    The first pillar of Islam is:
    “Shahadah”: The Testimony that there is none worthy of worship except God and that Muhammad is his messenger.

    Almighty Allah says: “Surely Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Holy Prophet (SAW). O you who believe! Send Blessings (Durood) and Salutations (Salaams) on the Prophet with worthy Salutation”. (Surah al-Ahzab: 56)

    Hazrat Anas (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Salim) said: “He who reads a single Durood upon me, Almighty Allah blesses him ten times, ten of his sins are forgiven, and he is increased ten times in stages (internally). (Mishkaat)

    Quran mentions the importance of Muhammad in Islam nd how much he is loved by Almighty Allah. if we dunt respect Prophet Muhammad (SAW), thn we are not obeying Islam and we have no right to say we are Muslims.

    i agree pakistan is facing a lot of problems these days due to difference in beliefs but when it comes to religion, we all share a single belief! it is not even about drawing images of Prophet, it is about who makes da funniest image of Prophet (NA UZU BILLAH).
    if u guys believe it is right thn when it comes to ur parents or ur family or ur wife, thn i believe it also shudnt matter!
    nd by banning face book in pakistan, da management is facing a severe financial loss 🙂

  11. zubair kadri says:

    first of all, the article was written very well. it seems to have been written by someone who lives in the real world and has a well balanced age perspective the whole situation. really, though, we’ve become the religion that so desperately needs to scrutinize the world with a fine toothed comb so that we can sleep with pride at night. if your faith is strong, then let that be the impetus in your life to keep going and doing good. we don’t need to respond to every notion of disrespect with a public outcry. rather strict muslims shouldn’t be watching family guy or south park, and those of you who can’t handle inevitable terrors of the internet and facebook should stick to the library and landlines.

    did pakistan really need to make a huge buzz out of a page on facebook mocking the Prophet? no. i think it’s absolutely pathetic that i can’t visit my mother’s home country because of the state of affairs there today. i was in india when benazir was assassinated a couple years back and had plans, which were canceled as a result, to go to Lahore. pakistan, as a country and as a following, needs to focus on more pertinent issues to their well being. banning fb is most definitely not one of them.

    now, as per some of the comments on this page…

    aqsaa, i’m glad you’re here – in the real world. the world where there is this vast infinite span of space called the internet, where any one of ~6billion peoples true and uninterrupted emotions reveal themselves. closing them off via an internet ban is just sheltering from reality…NOT CHANGING it.

    rao abul aziz bin kadir gilani imran – future troublemaker for the religion of islam. chill the fuck out and realize that we don’t live in a world comprised solely of muslims. granted, there are over a billion of us, but the world does not have to cater to how you think the environment in which islam exists is. and how dare you demean a girl like Aqsaa, who comes and posts about how she would like islam to be viewed in a better light – a light suns away from your distorted view of how we are supposed to “react” to religious injustices. here Aqsaa is suggesting how we as a people should ignore anti-islamic commentary and focus on ways to better our people and islamic inhabited countries (pakistan) and you’re telling her that she’s not fulfilling her religious obligations. “record our protest to the outer non Muslim world” – no. also, don’t single out hindus and christians for not caring about their religion. it makes you sound ‘typical’ and rather uneducated.

    xerlish
    i’m sure you had a lot of noteworthy points…but your internet speech was too hard to read. isn’t it more difficult to write like that than using plain english?

    • Fariha says:

      The ‘real world’ from your perspective?

      I think we should respect the difference of opinions and never make the mistake of assuming that ours is the only world out there.

      My question – why does fb feel its ok to ban a few pages that refute/ deny the holocaust and feel its ok to make fun of our holy Prophet?

      The ban was symbolic – symbolising our stance on the issue.

  12. zubair kadri says:

    ramish
    overall, you make a reasonable point.

    “nd by banning face book in pakistan, da management is facing a severe financial loss”

    banning facebook from a single university in the United States would be more of a financial loss to facebook than a ban for all of pakistan.

  13. Sara says:

    Honestly, this article was a crappy one! I guess the writer is deluded or something! Seriously, our Prophet – the image of perfection – is insulted at the hands of that satanic world out there, and we just sit back, roll our eyes and MOVE ON?! How the bloody hell is it possible for a devout Muslim? No way, I’m not buying any of the junk being sold in this pathetic article which, Im sure, has been written to misgudie people! I love my Prophet (PBUH) who brightened the darkened world for all times to come. I’m totally in favour of the ban, and hope that it’s a ‘permanent’ one!!

  14. Sara says:

  15. rehan says:

    Dear Bilal

    Yes, we as Pakistanis need to focus on health, education, radicalization (talibanization), security, justice etc. etc.

    Most of the Pakistanis are living without basic necessities of life, but they do keep their dignity near and dear to their heart – part of it is their faith and religion.

    We cannot brush away someone taking our dignity away with a three letter word (wtf).

    regards
    rehan

  16. Aqsa says:

    Zubair, thank you 🙂 You’re rightt, these people really need to open up their eyes and try to find a better way of preaching Islam.
    And Sara, how dare you suggest people who are against the ban are misguided or less religious? You have no right to judge our faith. And listen, seriously, how is the ban doing you any good? Is it going to change anything? I mean you didnt stop evil, you just stopped yourself from seeing it. Just explain how banning facebook is doing any good. I dont think the people who made the page even care about all this insanity that has broken out in Pakistan.

  17. WTF guy says:

    Dear Mr. Rehan,
    Pakistanis must not have much dignity left, if as you suggest, it can be taken away with a 3 letter word. The author is correct that some people just need to grow up. I stopped calling foul in middle school when another kid in the class called me names.
    Since you agree that Pakistanis are living without basic amenities, why aren’t you so hyped up about those issues. I don’t see you commenting on other posts on this website related to poverty, education, energy? This post got you going because you think you can earn brownie points with Allah?

  18. wasif says:

    whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy??????? fb is our life

  19. Jehanzeb says:

    i totally agree with you, but the pakistani “qaum” is one of the most intolerant in the world. this event has taken place before, by which i mean the drawings of the prophet. Last time this happened riots took place and as a result 6 ppl died (in karachi alone). The rioters burned down KFC’s and MC Donalds and innocent people such as cooks died, people who didnt even know what this whole issue may have been about. Though what the Pakistani government did is completly useless, in the short run though it may have helped spare the lives of a few innocent people

  20. MABS says:

    Dear All,

    I am not a fundamentalist Muslim but also don’t even want to be a shameless Muslim.
    For some of my friends here, if deactivating my account makes me narrow minded, i don mind it. Believe if I did not know about this page I would have never deactivated my account. But once to i got to know this page, i shut it down for whatever moral values i have within me.
    I made this choice once i imagined that if someone would have done this with my father, what would have been my reaction.
    I wrote earlier on some other page that it’s all about matter of choice. With the small amount of religion within me, i just had to choose. For we all be judged on choices we make here.
    I believe that i was among those users who prefer to open FB as first thing after turning on PC. Where I live, I can still access FB but i opted to deactivate account to write my protest as a “Reason” against that page. Deactivation of my account might not affect FB but I wanted to pass my message that Facebook should revise its policy for certain matters which may cause disturbance on mass level.

  21. Rao Imran says:

    Oh…Mr so called kadri (Qadri) who doesn’t even spell his name correctly how would we expect such loyalty to Islam from people like him I am 100% sure that if Pakistan Govt. wouldn’t have banned all those harmful sites, Kadri and Aqsa would be the first to visit those nasty filthy pages and then would be declaring those safe for all the Muslims. By the way I am very happy to know that there are people how really are brought up in a true Islamic culture and have developed an Islamic mind which cannot accept any thing against their beliefs… Bravo brothers and sisters this the spirit we need to show those who think that Muslims are asleep and have become shameless part of the culture which they are trying to launch to the Muslim world. No we don’t accept it on any cost no way no way….I again feel sorry about Kadri (Qadri) and Aqsa.

  22. Rao Imran says:

    Dear friends beware of people who are declaring themselves modern or more educated Muslims or I must say broadminded ones for example:(Aqsa and Kadri) and trying to prove such silly points like. we Muslims shouldn’t be protesting against those nasty acts of some fanatics instead we should ignore, and we have other issues to think about, Pkistan Govt. is doing wrong…blah….blah, but please do not take influence of such elements cause their goal is to misguide you as Sara said earlier, please keep that fire burning in your heart don’t accept any crap from them. “We strongly condemn all nasty acts on Internet against our beloved Prophet(SAW)and we would boycott each and every website which would support such satanic acts”.

  24. Aqsa says:

    How lovely to see all those rude comments up there. Way to go guys. You just cant stand someone whose opinion differs from yours can you?
    Rao, I wasnt saying I’m broad minded. I was just saying there is no point in banning the site. Instead, maybe we can try to preach Islam to those people in a nice manner, yeah? I never visited those nasty pages with any bad intention. Every time I visited them, I tried to rationally talk to the people and convince them against it. Thats called Daawah. 🙂 And you dont have any right to say anything about Kadris name or to judge his faith. There is not much difference between a Q and a K. So please watch what you say. Have a nice night. 🙂

  25. Rao Imran says:

    Thank God you have come up with something rational this time Aqsa at least you have realized that you could not just make people understand what you actually meant I am happy about you this time, but you and people like Kadri or Qadri have nothing congenial, he seems to me a low life because of his way of talking. I am sorry If I have said something to hurt you. In the end I would like to say that we should stick to our base which is our religion. May Allah(SWT) forgive all of us,by the way our protest has caused Facebook a heavy loss 🙂

  26. ali says:

    i love my prophet(pbuh) “shame on you aqsa n qadri to favouring fb” read this
    “Innal llaha wa Malaa’ikatahu Yu salluna allan nabiyi.
    Ya Ayyuhal lazeena aamanu sallu alaihi wasallimu tasleema.” (Surah Ai-Ahzab, Verse 56)

    Almighty Allah says: “Surely Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Holy Prophet (Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Salim). O you who believe! Send Blessings (Durood) and Salutations (Salaams) on the Prophet with worthy Salutation”. (Surah al-Ahzab: 56)

    i think its enough to understand the importance of prophet (pbuh)

  27. Aqsa says:

    Ali, I love the Prophet too. I don’t need you to tell me that. I was just saying, it makes no sense to ban facebook. Didn’t Allah tell us to spread Islam? We could’ve tried to talk to the people on that page and tell them about Islam and make them realize its the best religion instead of banning facebook.

    Rao, its alright. All I can say is we’re two different people and we don’t have the right to call each other less religious or say we love the prophet more. We don’t know each other at all. But nice talking to you. (:

    • belal says:

      miss aqsa u love prophet.. then any thing against HIm … is smthing we cant sipmly tolerate
      cant u ivewithout fb n youtube?
      are these the only way to get xposure of world? cmn!

  28. Aqsa says:

    Its not about facebook mate. And yes, I can stand it actually. You see, the Prophet used to stand all criticism against him too. Enough said. (:
    But anyway, I would actually try to change the way those people think. I wont force them to delete the page. I would try to change the way they think. See the difference?

  29. Rao Imran says:

    Brothers and sisters we all love our prophet (SAW)and we all condemn every act which is against our religious beliefs and our Prophet(SAW) in any way. We all are selling in the same boat but sometimes it is difficult to make others understand what you actually want to prove specially when you have to write it in less words I guess this is the case with Aqsa, she wanted to make us understand her perspective but she could not explain it in a better way, I am 100% sure that she also condemn all those nasty acts and web sites on Internet as much as we all do but her point of view is, to solve the problem from the base, but in my opinion the people who are responsible for all those acts are not so simple so they won’t stop doing such things easily and to stop them and to show them our anger it is inevitable to do protest, which has proven to be more effective than any other mean, so please lets close this Aqsa topic and seriously think, what more can we do to stop such nasty satanic acts against us, may Allah(SWT) be helpful to all of us Ameen.

  33. WARSHA says:

    Hi all !
    I strongly condemn …….
    Not only this issue but all other related issues which the anti-Islamic elements create and we react accordingly
    In my opinion :
    Muslims r not justified to take any steps on such issues as we have to first correct ourselves, unite ourselves and educate ourselves, only then we can do justice with such issues / elements ……
    We should raise our voices unitedly/jointly so that anti-Islamic elements understand clearly that, we are not deaf/dumb/blind, yet we should also discourage harm/violence worldwide within our societies as well as outside our socities

    We should also remember the Teachings Of Islam
    “ALLAH is responsible of giving and taking of Respect”
    No human has such a power

    Dear All, i dont agree with the mentioned points in this article. it clearly means to pretend and find ways in favour of offensive activities and simply forgetting the real place of our Prophet(PBUH).i appreciate the step taken by Pakistani Govt. people who talk about other socail injustice it is due to our inefficiences not due islam.these issue occure in our society because we take islam for granted as we are muslims by birth.we did not compared it with other religions and never pondered to conclude that yes it is the only religion, otheres are only myths.so being a muslim not even true only a muslim..its obligatory to all of us not to support such activity and even such platform that creates ideas to hit muslims.nothing is more important then our Prophet(PBUH) and Alhamdulillah i completely boycott using this website.beacause this is the least step that i can do on my behalf in love of our Prophet(PBUH) and if all muslims do do their economy wud definitely face a loss…bt it requires Passion for islam…and thats what we lack!!! even if you dont apply must think about.
    regards,
    sumbal Ch.

    u r defending corrupt people of society by saying this

    “who compete with hope of advancing their careers, personal and humanitarian goals, and as women who seek to improve the lives of others.”

    a robber also tries to improve life style of others( of his family)… so we shud not penalize anyone doing right or wrong bcz its their career….they shud advance…
    i mean to say that virtue cant b spread through sin…if u think dis…think again by keeping in mind that u have faith in ALLAH and HIS last PROPHET(PBUH)

  43. MUHAMMAD AHMED says:

    you are totally wrong because you didn’t have respect for your prophet , i don’t know which type of Muslim are you, at least have respect of your religion, the things which non Muslims are trying to do you are doing the same. may Allah bless you.
