Religion plays an important role human life it gives the direction to life. Islam is one of the prevalent religions in today’s world but when it comes to ascertain life according to the belief system we encounter a sheer contradiction between what is said and what is followed. Recently in Malaysia the deputy minister has unveiled one such contradiction that in other words has also exposed Muslims duality.
Malaysian senator has rightly pointed out that a majority of Muslims who cry over Halaal food are those who have restricted the idea only to food while in Islam the concept of Halaal and Haram lies beyond it. This concept is more stressed in Islam with respect to income; either the money one gets is through fair means (Halaal) or unfair means (Haram) like corruption, usurer and interest.
The case is no different in Pakistan. There are numerable instances in our society which stand in evidence to such contradictions. For example, hike in prices during the holy month of Ramadan that goes against its essence. Similarly those who showcase themselves as the pious are those who are involved in adulteration. Such people are those who turn their back on Islam as they shut the door of mosque and walk out.
The debate was generated in Malaysia after minister Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom disapproved to give Halaal certificate to the non-alcoholic ‘beer’ or any product bearing Haram related words like dog and pig. Owing to which US pretzel chain has changed its name from ‘pretzel dog’ to ‘pretzel sausage.’
Some restaurants are still selling the same product and have only changed the name, so they could escape the legal restrictions.
