Baseless allegations, rumour mongering spoil moral values: Dr Aamir

 
May 9, 2014

KARACHI: Internationally-famed research scholar and Geo Network Vice President Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain has said that Islam teaches us a lesson of mutual respect and adherence to moral values. He said the race to leave others behind had affected the media and other walks of life.
He said vanity, allegations and use of insulting words for opponents had become a routine. He said this impolite way had spoiled our morality.Having played an important role for ending clash of the institutions and promotion of harmony, Dr Hussain was commenting on the country’s affairs in his famous program ‘Alim Online’.
He said life is the name of experiences and during his long political and journalistic career, he learned a lot and met some respectable personalities. He said these personalities had differences but the way rivals were being humiliated today was unthinkable in the past.
He said some media representatives had adopted an impolite method of levelling allegations and rumour-mongering. He said they were not afraid of Allah, which was why they spoke at will.
He said social media had been made a means to humiliate and hurt others. He said those doing so should keep in mind that this world was not everything and the Hereafter was nearing when everybody would get punishment for his bad deeds.
He paid tribute to the armed forces saying they were our protectors and ISI was our first defence line.He said if we made a mistake, we should accept it and apologise. He said he believed in Ishq-e-Rasool (Peace be upon him) and honesty, for which he had given sacrifices in the past. He said he was ready to quit every office at an appropriate time but would not compromise on principles.
Comparing social welfare around the world with the country’s situation, he said in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a refrigerator was placed outside the house of residents so that people might put in it their leftover food so that the hungry could eat it. He said the situation was the

same in the West but here ready crops of farmers were set on fire in Chiniot to make temporary helipad for the president. He said our actions showed that we had ignored golden principles of Islam and others have adopted them, which was why they were successful in the world and we were humiliated.
He said the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) member and Pakistan Ulema Council chief Hafiz Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi had stated that we used to respect one another despite having sectarian differences in the past but nowadays we defamed one another. He said we turned back on people’s problems for the sake of personal gains. He said travel restrictions were imposed due to polio. He remarked instead of finding solution to load shedding and people’s problems, we chose the path of protests. He said levelling allegations on media and judiciary for rigging polls, without research was improper and this attitude made us a laughing stock in front of the world.
