Quacks In Islam - Well Wishers Or Harmful

Quacks In Islam- Well Wishers Or Harmful

By Tanveer Jafri

These days, Islam is bearing the brunt of being accused of the worldwide terrorism at the same time its self styled religious leaders are leaving no stone unturned to affront it. Reality is that these quacks have played an important role in establishing a relationship between Islamic terrorism & Islamic crusade. Undoubtedly, to spread terrorism is not only a big crime but it is not right keeping in view of the religious grounds also. But this truth can't be denied that for the Muslim youths that have involved themselves in terrorism, there is an important role of these quack religious leaders to prepare them mentally. It is the work of these quack religious leaders to misguide the Muslim youths by their fiery speeches, to entice them that they would go to heaven after death & to entrap them by false arguments that they would do good work by spreading terrorism.

Now the question is that these self styled custodians of the Islam religion, these quacks, are capable to give proper guidance to the Islam especially to Islamic youths? To what standard have they received the religious & worldly education? What is their family background & in what actions are they involved in their personal life? Are their activities bringing fame or defame to the Islam religion? It is very essential as well as the need of the time to ponder over these facts. At present, when the Islam religion has become the centre of worldwide criticism & the Islam is being doubted in the world because of farsighted conspiracy then it is a challenge before the watchful, progressive & liberal Muslims to find a way out of such circumstances.

Undoubtedly, at present in many countries of the world, the Muslims & the Muslim countries are facing breach of their rights. It is also true that it is all under a farsighted conspiracy by some countries. But besides it, a group of quack religious leaders, busy in selfish ends, can be seen affronting the Islam & the Muslims. This group of quack Muslim leaders, that is making its living in only religious activities, is presenting the details of the Islam religion among the Muslim not in wider way but in a narrow way, so the Muslim community has become a centre of doubt, despite the common people don't want it so. These quacks may plead the Islamic religious laws in their own way & may issue the religious orders without any sound base, that can't be said. These so called quack Muslim religious leaders don't think before speaking that as the so called representative of Islam, any controversial word that comes out from them, may create doubt not only to the Islam religion but to the Islamic world also. Not only this, some words that are spoken by them are directly harmful to the country's administration even.

For example, government of India has started a revolution to uproot the dangerous disease Polio. The government of India with the help of World Health Organisation spends a huge sum of money every year to eliminate Polio. The dates that are announced by the government of India for doses of Polio are propagated widely by the media & other sources of advertisements. People of India may be of any religion or community, who gets information about doses of Polio, trying to reach the fixed place for it to get his or her baby Polio drops. It is a matter of sorrow that on one side World Bank, World Health Organisation, Government of India, state governments & other NGO's encourage the common people to give the polio drops to their children to save them from the dreaded disease like polio & on the other side, some quack religious leaders give religious orders Fatwa that the followers of Islam should not give Polio drop to their babies. These quack religious leaders argue to terrorize that these Polio drops will make their babies eunuch.

Unfortunately, the most of the Muslim community in India is passing through the stage of poverty & illiteracy. And because of blind faith, they are taken in by the religious orders of these quacks. This class of the Muslim community is heavily affected by the religious orders of these quacks & in many parts of India where there is majority of Muslim population, the number of persons who gave their babies the Polio drops were fewer. Why do these quacks not think the effect of their so called irresponsible religious orders on the Islam, Muslim community & development of the country?

A few days back, a T.V. channel in India removed the curtain from the character of these quack religious leaders who easily issue any religious order Fatwa for the sake of money. In these types of religious orders, there was one that the Muslims shouldn't give Polio drops to their infants & the other was that their religion doesn't allow the Muslims to work in films. According to the religious orders of these quacks, the Muslims should neither sleep on the double bed nor use mobile phone with camera. According to these religious orders, the Muslims shouldn't not see the T.V. & the Muslim especially the Muslim women should not be friend with the Non-Muslims. A few days back there was uproar about a Fatwa related with the dress of tennis star Sania Mirza.

In reality, the Islam seems quite unsafe in the hands of these quack religious leaders who earn their living by these religious activities. Before this, that the Islam plays fiddle in the hands of these quacks & becomes unsafe & helpless, the elite, liberal & progressive Muslims should come forward & discharge these illiterates, fanatic, believers in blind faith, dogmatic & who are for sale, religious leaders so that the Islam, which is pious & teaches the lessons of humanity on every step, is saved from the grip of these so called religious leaders.
