Alcoholics We Poison.

In the newspaper (DAWN) today: “At least 18 people died after drinking toxic liquor in different localities of the city on Thursday” The death count is said to be over 30 now (Geo).

Alcoholism is a disorder in which people cant stop them selves from consuming alcohol. In a literate society people understand the problem and seek professional help but for our poor illiterate masses there is no hope. And to make it worst we ask the licensed liquor to shut down for a whole month, and as a results the alcohol addicts and alcoholics of all religions and cast who cant afford to call their liquor dealer for a home delivery of a bottle of expensive vodka go for the only available “Kupi” and “Tharra” and end up killing them selves.

Why are we forcing our religious values on them who don’t follow our religion? Why there is no help for the underprovided alcoholics? Why our authorities don’t feel comfortable to identify and accept that such a problem exists? Why don’t they do something to solve such issues? These are just a few of the countless questions we as a nation have in our minds, and with every new issues, incident many such questions popup in our minds and go unanswered as they have always been since ever.

    @reality_check: so wat do u wanna say???
    arabs did nothing??? or they did excellent?

    continuing the previous work requires more struggle as u have to understand the previous things, which must have some glitches. also , it doesnt mean that they didnt invent ne thing their selves.

    I m sure, had the arabs been in place of greeks at that time, arabs would have done much better than greeks

    Read more history and stop reading stanley lane pool and other racist historians.

    IUNKNOWN The torch of knowledge had been lit and carried by civilization after civilization from Babylon’s, Assyrians, Egyptians, Indians, Chinese, Greeks, Arabs, Europeans and the present day ones. Great men and women in every era have fought and endured persecution by priest, king and military to advance the cause of knowledge and free thinking.

    The current age is unique i.e. not one but all the races from Americas to Europe and from Asia to Australia are working simultaneously to further the cause of science and exploration, hence such explosion of knowledge in every field. However, the only people that seem to be watching the show from the side lines are the ones practicing the Muslim faith. Ironically, they are the ones who claim to have the complete code of life.

    In the present day diction there is a very appropriate word for ideas that have become outdated and replaced by newer / better ones i.e. “OBSOLETE”

    i have said again and again that don’t study muslims to justify that islam is right or wrong, study islam instead. by reading your comments it seems that u want to separate muslims fro the rest of the world and u urself are trying to sideline them.

    Islam has given complete code of life and muslims are expected to follow it. but if they don’t it doesn’t mean that their religion is responsible.

    everybody in their childhood is taught not to tell lies but do everyone follows it, no, so who is responsible, definitely the individual.

    TARIQ it’s not about Muslims, the fact is that mankind has taken enormous leaps forward after settling religion on a back seat. It’s ok for me if religion is practised as a means of personal solace and well being. However, (for me) religion is not the right model to follow when seeking knowledge or truth or a just social order, because religion essentially tells you what to do, what to question and what not to. No matter how liberal a religion is, as a follower you have to work within its frame work. Whereas, to seek knowledge the golden rule is, “Question every thing”, nothing is divine or sacred.

    As an adult one of the first things I did was to challenge my inherited faith and when it failed rigorous scrutiny, I gave it up.

    “the only people that seem to be watching the show from the side lines are the ones practicing the Muslim faith. Ironically, they are the ones who claim to have the complete code of life”

    Its due to their lazyness, not the faith DUDE!

    Also, do u think ppl like tariq azeem, parvaiz musharraf and durrani are muslims?? never ever. they are disguising their selves as muslims. These kinda ppl are stopping the progress of our country.

    Those illeterate jahil politicians are stopping the progress of our country. IT, IT ,IT , they keep barking that but never have done ne thing to improve software export etc etc.. They never invited ne company like DELL or MS to come here and invest. now dont tell me that these companies are afraid of suicidal bombings.

    we need to get rid of all such politicians first, before we can go ahead.

    P.S. The above lines have been said in teh context of pakistan only, not the whole muslims world. Every country has its problems
