KARACHI: As the Eid-ul-Fitr is closing in, the advertising campaigns at local TV networks are gaining momentum, but the race of ‘creativity’ among them has left all the moral, social and religious ethics far behind.
Certain advertising campaigns, talk shows, dramas and other programmes on these private TV networks clearly fall under the definition of blasphemy, which are continuing unchecked.

The big question here is that how come the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Chief of the Army Staff, President and Prime Minister of Pakistan and all the other champions of democracy and followers of the Constitution are oblivious of these violations of the Constitution.

It may be mentioned here that Article 230 of the Constitution of Pakistan defines the function of the Islamic Council to be constituted under Article 228 of the Constitution.

Article 230 defines the functions of the Islamic Council, which include making recommendations Parliament and the Provincial Assemblies as to the ways and means of enabling and encouraging the Muslims of Pakistan to order their lives individually and collectively in all respects in accordance with the principles and concepts of Islam as enunciated in the Holy Quran and Sunnah;

Advising a House, a Provincial Assembly, the President or a Governor on any question referred to the Council as to whether a proposed law is or is not repugnant to the Injunctions of Islam;

Making recommendations as to the measures for bringing existing laws into conformity with the Injunctions of Islam and the stages by which such measures should be brought into effect; and to compile in a suitable form, for the guidance of Parliament and the Provincial Assemblies, such Injunctions of Islam as can be given legislative effect.

Minhas, a religious cleric, said that these campaigns on TV were largely funded and supported by anti-Islam forces.
“These are aimed at modifying the true teachings of Islam and making the Muslims used to a modified and westernized Islam,” Minhas said.

“Yeh Musalmano ka ‘ilm’(knowledge) kharab karnay ki sazish hai, agar ‘ilm’ kharab hogaya to ‘amal’ (practice) bhi kharab hojaeyga,” he said.

Women in indecent and even obscene clothes can be seen on TV performing religious rites and offering prayers. Now, the coming generation would believe such clothes fit for offering prayers and would not know that that their worship would have no regard in the eyes of Allah Almighty.

Similarly, people though Muslims but unaware of the true teachings of Islam are preaching things on TV shows, which have nothing to do with Islam even things and practices are being propagated that could take Muslims out of the circle of Islam.

Khurram Khan, a psychiatrist, said that it was true that if a lie is told so frequently, it becomes truth for the listener.
The flood of anti-Islam preaching in the name of Islam, obscenity and blasphemy on foreign funded Geo TV, HUM TV, ARY TV and all such networks proves the bigger conspiracy of anti-Islam forces and leaved a big question mark whether the authorities including judiciary, military etc. have sold their souls also. As the Eid-ul-Fitr is closing in, the advertising campaigns at local TV networks are gaining momentum, but the race of ‘creativity’ among them has left all the moral, social and religious ethics far behind.
