Right of opin­ion

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

NAUSHABA ABID As many of you have seen clip of Na­dia Mirza show in which she was re­fer­ring to the is­sue of the four women who were burnt alive and the way re­li­gious rep­re­sen­ta­tive of JUI F re­sponded, has left a num­ber of ques­tions. Use of abu­sive lan­guage and threat­ing a woman in front of live cam­era, what does one can think of while watch­ing this. Some so-called psedu-Is­lamists usu­ally be­lieve that they are the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Is­lam so what­ever they can do or say can­not be chal­lenged. In this cen­tury one should not think like this; but if any­body does, might be liv­ing in a fool’s Par­adise.

Ac­tu­ally the se­na­tor par­tic­i­pant of the show was not rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Is­lam but of his Party that is JUI-F. He should and many like him must re­mind them­selves who they ac­tu­ally are be­fore at­tack­ing some­one in the name of Is­lam. Ev­ery­body has right of opin­ion. Even in Prophet’s (PBUH) time right of opin­ion was there; how one can stop some­one to at least raise voice. The Lady Marvi Sir­mid as I watched the clip, was not dom­i­nat­ing, she ex­pressed her opin­ion and one has the right to agree or dis­agree but the way JUI-F Se­na­tor re­sponded with ex­ple­tive re­marks should be con­demned at all pos­si­ble fo­rums. We need to open our eyes. To­day in this world we are fac­ing many prob­lems be­cause of th­ese peo­ple who por­trays the wrong im­age of the reli­gion. — Islamabad
