FIRST, I am so proud to be a Muslim! I love my faith because it frees me so much and there is so much equality in my religion that if NOT misconstrued and not tainted with a Mullah Version one will see that our Holy Prophet (PBUH) was about love! How? Because he fell in love with Islam and embraced it. Also it is written that one MUST embrace Islam truly and of free will. CONVERSION MUST NOT BE FORCED UPON ANYONE because a “true” Muslim can only understand Islam if he or she chooses to accept it wholeheartedly, unconditionally and with love!
Islam grants women a lot of freedom as our Holy Quran is all about loving and respecting ones family specially the women in your family because in Islam it is said that one finds “Jannat” under the feet of one’s mother! Our religion does not bound women but yes it does say that because they are weaker we as Muslim men should and MUST protect them at any and all cost! (Not chain, bind and gag and abuse them!)
SECOND Pakistan the name means “land of the pure” and is a Nation founded on “Love” it is a nation that our forefather’s fought for as a safe haven for all Muslims and they died in the name of not only our country but to preserve and protect a lifestyle and a religion.
So if our country was founded on “Love” and our religion is based upon “Loving” each other and understanding brotherhood and the sanctity and protection of Love then why are all the Mullahs putting up billboards to tell everyone to STOP loving each other. It is so hypocritical! How would the clerics like it if bill boards went up all over the country with a bearded man with a leering stare and a question mark with one line on it that said “would you leave your 5 year old alone with this man?”
Ok so my next question to you is if these Mullahs are about “STOPPING LOVE” then why hasn’t anyone from the clergy objected to the hammering on TV two weeks before valentine’s day from SAATHI CONDOMS during prime time television! Doesn't that promote “Sex” not love? Because sex and love are two different things!
I mean come on and relax guys! If you do not want to spend a 100 rupees for your wife or your mother or your sister then just say you cannot afford flowers but for God’s sake do not use this as an excuse to say you are a devout Muslim when after two weeks you will be at Sea View with your bachi you met off OLX on your CD-70… Why are you now bringing a religion based upon love into your own insecurities of problems?
