At­tack on Ke­laash girl

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - HINA DEEDAR

The at­tack on a Ke­laash girl, to force her to em­brace Is­lam, was cer­tainly a shame­ful and re­gret­table act. We need to un­der­stand the essence of Is­lam. Is­lam gives the mes­sage of peace but not of vi­o­lence or war. Is­lam does not teach its fol­low­ers to forcibly con­vert oth­ers into Is­lam. By do­ing such dis­pleas­ing and im­moral act we are just por­tray­ing a neg­a­tive im­age of Is­lam in front of the world.

Our Prophet has also taught us to re­spect other re­li­gions. But it seems as if we have for­got­ten all the teach­ing and say­ings of our Prophet (PBUH). Even hav­ing feel­ings of ha­tred for other peo­ple gives way to an un­friendly and un­pleas­ant en­vi­ron­ment. We should learn to re­spect other re­li­gions. — Karachi
