Being “liberal” and progressing

Picture 1

The passage of time changes the perspectives of societies, driven by the gaining of knowledge, it takes them out of the caliginous dark into illuminating light. Time, however, can also change an opulent and prosperous society into a corrupt and despicable slum when core values of morality and conscientiousness are relinquished, leaving that society in the depths of nothingness. I fear that our society, the society of the Grand Saints, is following this latter order of time.

With the sudden influx of money and with it, technology, our society, particularly our youth have failed to sensibly utilize this technology. They have lost the distinction between morality and lewdness; between the Halal and Haraam. More often than not, our young generation, which is by each day growing more and more adamant about the western definition of Liberalism, lose their moral sense of distinction between right and wrong.  It appears from growing misdemeanours that our youth hold no regard for the values and principles that have been guiding our society for centuries. Instead, the malignant crop of “self-proclaimed liberalism” is occupying our young minds at a very dangerous pace. This is evident from the liberal rants posted across almost all social media channels like Facebook and Twitter. A few weeks ago, I was surprised to see posts on a Facebook Community called “18+ confessions-J&K” when within just a few days our Kashmiri youth were visiting the page so much so that it received more than ten thousand likes.

The question, or rather, the objection is surely not towards the popularity of the page. But the objection is most definitely towards the adult content that our youth are so freely posting. Instead of concealing their sins according to the Islamic jurisprudence, some people follow the Christian discourse of “Confession” and confess their sexual endeavours while others cry for their broken relations. Moreover, there is no proof that accounts for the credibility of these confessions and can be to some extent, fake. What is alarming is the support that these youth provide to each other, consoling somebody on his broken relationship, encouraging somebody on confessing his/her sexual encounters and exhorting others with their advice towards dalliance. This shows that our youth are getting more and more receptive to such alien culture under the guise of liberal behaviour and being liberal.

While doing so, they are ignoring what Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said, “My entire nation is safe, except Al-Mujahirin (those who boast of their sins). Among the Mujaharah is that a man commits an evil act, and wakes up in the morning while Allah has kept his (sin) a secret, he says, “O so and so! Last night I did this and that.” He goes to sleep while Allah has kept his (sins) a secret but he wakes up in the morning and uncovers what Allah had kept a secret” (Sahih Al-Bukhari).

Liberalism is sprawling into our society at a serious pace. Today, the Kashmiri youth consider inter-mingling of sexes as liberal behaviour and a part of inter-personal development, with illicit relationships becoming very common among the college youth, and those who obviate from such behaviour bullied, called anti-social, anti-liberal and conservative. The effects of liberalism are evident in the language as well. These days, Kashmiri boys and girls, without any hesitation openly use slang, and the ever popular “F word” which has become the most common noun, verb and adjective.

When I contemplate  upon this growing menace and immoral behaviour of our teenage youth, I find something missing in our young population and that is the “Darazgah”. When we were young, the Darazgah or Madrassa (Islamic school) formed a very important part of our education and helped us in distinguishing between Halaal and Haraam. These days, particularly in colonies, there is no Darazgah culture and hence our youth are missing out on very important sources of moral and character building. Thereby, they are becoming susceptible to the foreign ideologies that contradict with the teachings of Islam. The blame here lies amongst the adult population equally. The parents should make it a point to have their children enrolled in the Darazgahs so that they are able to differentiate an Islamic act from an un-Islamic one. When I wrote against the cultural aggression in our society “Schools First, Greater Kashmir, Nov 7, 2012”, I received a considerable amount of feedback in my mail from the liberals in our society who denounced me as narrow-minded and fundamentalist. Most of them were presumably the youth. However, it is important to realize that this is not my need to be prudent or judgemental speaking, but rather the very basic ordains of the religion of Islam.

    The blame – if at all – for the present state of things in J&K lies squarely at the foot of the Jihadi madmen and their venom-spewing separatist cohorts who have legitimized and regularized violence as a form of political activity. If bombs are blasted against soldiers on duty, then someone is bound to throw them at civilians. If Sarpanches can be shot as a protest against elections, then someone is bound to use it to settle personal scores too.

    Wake up and smell the coffee. This Jihad is fake. India has God, trut, justice and humanity on her side. Understand this and give up this bloodbath.

      STFU Sanjeev…you useless excuse of a human…they ought to take people like you & shoot them in blind alleys.. you are the reason our country is stuck in corruption and separated in animosity towards each other..you are a divider..not a uniter..you deserve the worst.. you charlatan !!

      All you do is cleverly label people while denying actual facts.

      See the reality..you live in a jail..your mind is deluded..I pity you, I hope your existence has brought you much grief.

      May you be born again as the e-coli that lines the rectum of a homosexual.

          Ran out of lies, deception, coercion and innuendo ??

          Or perhaps you are busy with planning that yamraj visit :)

          Sanjeeev is a Liar, deceiver, & a Charlatan. Confront him with anything he will label your argument as a ‘jihadi’ etc etc.. Him & the like are only in here for to spread malcontent. They are the sort that after the army kills bystanders, terms it ‘alleged killing’ while on the same hand when a few ‘mighty’ gun trotting jawans are killed you hear from them “jawans were butchered” another ploy of the hegemonic beast. He is nothing but a tool.

          what scholarly work has he done, all he does is denounce scholars and those that speak out against the brutality.

          Soon he will be visited by yamraj and be born again as an e-coli inside a homosexuals rectum. This he may enjoy ….here is a smiley face ol man :)

      @ Gulzar Khan,

      You got it right. I get my monthly salary from Jamat-e-Islami India! :)

      The biggest trick the devil ever pulls is the one where he makes you believe he doesn’t exist.

      Sanjeev and the like are spewing their hate in more blogs then here. It is up to us wether we let them roam free without a contrary position.

      They talk tough & act tough, but they do not have an iota of justice or morality behind their words.

      The adage of ‘let barking dogs bark’ no longer holds true as barking dogs tend to gain power without refutation.

      • Sanjeev

        Come on dude! Get your contrary position in place! :)

        Good to see you have such compassion for dogs. You should show it to the ones in Srinagar! They will reciprocate, I am sure.

        Let the answers flow, pal! I am listening.

          This is Pasted here from a previous post, & will be pasted again where ever it needs to be. The message does not change.

          The Holy Quran is the most read Text in the world, it is also the most mis-read, i.e people read it without knowledge of the meaning.

          If the Holy Quran is read with meaning and understood then In’Shaa’Allah many problems of this world will cease to be.

          Currently our ummah is divided and without a clear path. In’Shaa’Allah the ummah will come together soon and lead the way once again.

          Nothing escapes aakhira.. we all must atone and face Allah, this is the only truth in the world.

          I do not believe in the violent means by which our religion is being labeled, but I do believe in fighting against tyranny. for what good are my legs if I am made to kneel forever.

          These attacks against what is being said in the defense of Kashmir & Kashmiris are just that.

          One has to also wonder about the timing of this backlash against Kashmiris by the likes of Sanjeev and the many names the person uses to pander. The BJP run on the platform of division, this is what I see these people doing.

          My message is clear, a believer (a MUSLIM) until he/she interpret the Holy Quran in full meaning and applies that to their life, we will continue to suffer.

          The uneducated and ignorant are easily brainwashed, this enables clerics and muftis to take advantage of a desperate situation.

          If only one person reads this and passes it on to others then Sanjeev & the Kind have done us a service since this message has gone through to someone.

          Let us thank him.

            Be my guest and apply Quran in entirety to your life. I do not think there will be any opposition to you in India. Not unless you plan to force it upon others. Nobody has ever stopped Muslims of J&K from practicing their religion, nor has anybody been converted out of Islam forcefully.

            That takes the wind out of your “Jihad-for-freedom” propaganda.

            Here are some suggested Quran-compliant actions you can undertake right away, dude:

            1. Use your real name on this forum.

            2. Explain how Jihad for seperation from a country is Islamic when Quran does not recognise territorial boundaries.

            3. Explain what makes tou think the non-Muslims do not recognise or believe in God. (Even I do, pal. That belief is what brings me to this forum of lies and venom, so that I can challenge your satanic ideology of Jihad against Hindus that masquerades as a holy directive. Save yourself from hellfire, o believer. The mayhem in J&K is not a Jihad by any yardstick).

            In a country where Scholars are banned to speak their mind, do you really think any citizen will take the chance of speaking out publically? Lest they be ostracized, detained, & tortured. India has become a police state. & you are one of the proponents of this fascism.

            here it is again so that the person who read your previous comment can read this to go along with it.

            Shouldn’t you rid of yourselves for any serious discussion to take place.

            You are being filibustered…get used to it You Fascist PIG!!

            You are once again a few cents short a dollar ol man.
