Who is guilty for cartoon issue: Denmark or we?



I strongly condemn the anti-Islamic act of Norway and Denmark. They do not have any right to do such act. But according to the freedom of expression they can write, sketch or publish anything that they want to do. But one thing is really disturbing me, who is really guilty for all that: Denmark and Norway, who had misused their rights of expression or we, who had built a mistaken image of our religion on their minds?

People understand what the see in real practice not what they told in speeches, literature and books. In real practice, we proudly say ourselves citizens of ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN, but where is Islam in this republic??? Loud music, western dresses, corruption, dishonesty, no respect for elders, no affection for younger… that’s all isn’t Islamic teachings. If we don’t have any respect for our teaching and our religion so why we expect that others will do so.

These days, the commercials and dramas and shows we see on TV, none of them airing anything Islamic from story to dialogues, from dresses to festivals and from traditions to moral values. We are keeping on copying whatever shown on the other side of border. We released, I must say proudly release their movies which shows Muslims as extremists, corrupted, terrorists, drug dealers, smugglers, suicide bombers but nobody protest against that. We do proud hanging posters in which girls wearing western clothes, mini skirts, short dresses but no one protest in front of concerned authorities to remove those things. Why don’t our leaders and ullamas and moulivis condemn that? That’s something more serious than cartoon issue. Those cartoons were made and published by non Muslim in a non Islamic country. But these all activities that I mentioned above are going on in an Islamic country.

If we want other to respect our religion and our values so I think first we must respect our religion and values. Its we who give them opportunity to do such things. It was portrait of Islam made by us which Denmark and Norway published. If we want the whole world to respect Islamic values I think we should with our homeland first. We must have to stop each and every non Islamic activity in our country. Otherwise we don’t have any right to show the finger on others.

  1. i think u r totally right in condemning muslims approach in the controversy. we should change ourselves first.

  2. suppose u have avery nasty class fellow.one day he calls u names,but because u are good u smile.the other day he slaps u. u say nothing,the following day he again slaps u, finding u to be very humble. the next day he will do much more than this. And if you had to face a whole nasty gang,what would u do? u certainly will think it was better u had stopped him on first day. the situation would not have become this much worse. for this purpose wise men have said;NIP THE EVIL IN THE BUD.
    the situation has grown worse like cancer, it should be cured at any moment u realiz it otherwise it can take the whole body.
    we dont have a second anymore,common lets pull this danish cancer out of the body of Mulim Ummat.if we delay ,how will we stand infront of Allah in the day of judgement. if we love Allah and His beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW), lets join hands and promise that we will do every thing by our hands,our words,and our deed to stop anything or any one against Allah and his Prophets.

    WE SURELY HAVE TO FACE DEATH,WHY NOT WITH EEMAN,WHY NOT DOING A GREAT CAUSE,FOR TRUE MUSLIM DOES NOT FEAR DEATH,HE ONLY FEARS ALLAH ALMIGHTY.

    Thanks Wajeeha u have made me think a lot and provided me a platform to share my views. keep up the gud work.

    TO BE OR NOT TO BE, THATS THE QUESTION…
    WHETHER ITS NOBLER IN MIND TO SUFFER..
    THE SLINGS AND ARROWS OF THE OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE
    OR TO TAKE ARMS AGAINST THE SEA OF TROUBLES;
    AND BY OPPOSING; END THEM?……..

  4. Muslims have always been peaceful to kuffar: Islam means peace. There are certain issues which cannot be solved by negotiation: denmark issue is also the same,what advantage have we got by keeping silent? they are such an ill mannered nation. They are doing it again and again because they have not got their real punishment. if they had been given the real punishment at the first time,they would not have reached this limit. Its true we should follow Islam,so in this matter we should follow what Allah’s order is.

  5. very good thoughts,but the question remains there. u r true we should follow Islam,but nobody is perfect. when it is forbidden in Islam not to make fun of others religions,how can we allow one to interfere in our religion. we some times do not obey or follow our parents but it does not mean that other people who are not our family members start abusing them.we certainly cannot bear it. then how can we bear it against our Prophet(pbuh). he is much more than parents for us. we love Him more than our parents.
    we must do every thing possible to stop them. its not their first time and they know whats da punishment for them. they have already been warned,then whats wrong with them. laws of Allah are to followed more strictly than the human made laws. freedom is not to enter others boundries. my free space is my own. the boundries of freedom end where others space start. they must be made to shut up. we are not dead,we must prove it. what do say?
