Fast fast, feast not least.

Karachi is a city which has a lot of population, so it is over-crowded. Most of its population are Muslims. This city is fast-paced, busy and on the top of it without any civic sense. I was passing by United King Bakery and people were intolerant there, ready to step over each other. Same was the scene in all the adjacent and sadly narrow streets. I could imagine the much publicized recent atta distribution incident come alive any moment. It was like hyper-active zombies shouting over each other. If you’re thinking what new then your civic sense and sensitivity is even worse than a zombie.

I mean do we fast to be patient or to shout or to promote gluttony. There is a sheer hypocrisy in what we boast and what we do. If we couldn’t practice what is required in this holy month, God help us.

PS: I would now go and listen to Devang Patel’s song Kha Kha aur Kha.

    People in Pakistan are basically mentally ill,
    what is the purpose of fasting, if you cant even control your temper, Fasting in Ramzan is faraz, but going haywire in temper is HAram/Forbidden.

    Opening Fast on street( during commutation) does not invalidate , relegate or degrade the fast, but going red with temper does, breaking the Law does.

    Problem is that there is no one to tell them this, because a common Pakistani muslin is dependent on a Cleric, for guidance, in same way as his Hindu or Christian counterpart, ie. non of them are allowed to read the holy scripture, (by read i mean to actually read and understand, not mimicking). And the Mullahs are so concerned with what USA ans Israel are doing, they don’t give a damn to what the people around themselves are doing.

    So far i have never heard of any cleric mentioning the importance of Patience or Cleaning in a Muslim’s life, in any of the Vaas, Khutba, or any kind of address given to general public.
    (keep in mind that A/c to hadeeth, Cleaning and purity makes up 50% of the faith)

    What i did hear about was, condemnation of Musharraf, Nawaz Shareef, Altaf Hussain, USA, Isreal, kids brought by their fathers at jumma prayer, and even My Institutes Principal, when he decided not to have the Institutes gates open after the class timings, which provided a shortcut to mosque.
