Spinning Wheel is ruling over the Crescent


Just have an eye around; people are so distracted that the entertainment is more becoming a hunger than just a past-time. People want to be entertained even at the cost of their religion, values, ethics, culture and country. In the society we are living the main source of entertainment is Indian Media: Indian movies, Indian dramas, and Indian songs. Be aware of the fact that how badly it portraits Islam, Muslims and Pakistan, we are giving business to them. Isn’t it like we are paying for being insulted?

Where the dignity, culture, ethics and religion gone when people put on posters of actress wearing mini-skirts just to market the cinema’s latest show – a movie just released on the other side of border. In the lust of entertainment are we becoming shame-proof? That we are demanding more and more of such supplies which are insulting and getting the wrong impression about our believes and humiliating our values.

Agreed! Completely agreed with the argument that our film industry is lacking behind in the quality of movies. But, is the movies only source of entertainment or the Indian media is only entertainment provider? We have a very good and well establish television industry which aired better quality stuff as compare to the material coming from that side of border.

Isn’t it feels heartbreaking that a kid studying in pre-school or primary school knows nothing about august 14, March 23, Shawal 1 or Rabi –ul- Awwal 12, but know each and everything about January 26, Diwali and Holi, Not know the name of founder of Pakistan but have knowledge about ever idol lord. What we are teaching to our youth? These are not our values.

Our forefathers have fought for more than a century to let the world know that we – the Muslims – have an identity of our own. We have our own ethical values we have our own believes. This identity is not supposed to be lost that easily. Do not let anyone take over your identity. Do not let other values to forget your own. Don’t let the ache for entertainment take over your ethical values.

“It is good to be helpful and kindly, but don’t give yourself to be melted into candle grease for the benefit of the tallow trade.”   – George Eliot.

    Whoa! I don’t know the significance of these dates, either. How about taking a few paragraphs on your blog to educate us Americans?
