Inhumane values have converted Islam into Islamophobia in the Western world where people feel the threat from Muslims and the sacred religion of Islam because of these deeds.
The inaccurate understanding of Islam by some fundamental groups has pushed people towards the catastrophic edge. The Sri Lankan citizen, Priyantha Diyawadana’s issue could have been dealt with by some legislative institutions. The way his crime has been handled is not a rational approach but fanaticism. The problem exists when everyone talks about the causes of the incident – the circumstances and people are confronted to obtain the results. Nevertheless, who is responsible for this tragic occurrence?
Illiteracy is a widespread notion that paves the way for these extremists who do not understand the causes of the happening. Illiteracy is a common issue spreading a wrong interpretation of Islam; which conveys an improper image of Islam. The risk of increasing ignorance and obliviousness among particularly fundamentalist and extremist people may disrupt the governance system of a state by advocating murders. A common man’s approach regarding blasphemy cases always brings forth such horrible scenes to a large extent.
Nonetheless, these outrageous episodes happen as a result of various reasons other than illiteracy; however, illiteracy is the root cause of all these evils which are happening usually in contemporary society. Law and order is another substantial theme that contributes to settling such resentments but it needs a tough and decisive government to thrive in a country. Everyone should be a true follower of Islam and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). A common man who does not know the rules of spiritual love will create disharmony among people by giving his surface knowledge and false interpretation of Islam. The government is supposed to establish a formally acceptable ‘law and order’ regarding these sensitive issues, and religious scholars may play a vital role to prevent these crimes.
On the other hand, an inhuman attitude is shown by various fundamentalists in different sects that have crowned the system with sanctions. Furthermore, inhumane values have converted Islam into Islamophobia in the Western world where people feel the threat from Muslims and Islam because of these deeds. Internationally Pakistan faces embarrassment and humiliation due to increasing violence and terror incidents in different cities of Pakistan. Despite everything, another crucial issue that can be problematic amid the erupting turmoil and unrest is politics.
Political mafia can be encountered respectively; major political parties are always looking to dominate the public with their contradictory views, and are just wanting to fulfill their interests while at the back always motivating these groups.
Strengthening the whole, some suggestions are quite essential to a stable system – illiteracy must be taken seriously. If illiteracy prevails constantly such atrocities will also be a mere spectacle and a state can face uncertainties ahead. The wrong interpretation of Islam must be on the hit-list to solve and to keep the country safe from these dangers. However, keeping in sight the Sialkot incident and other degraded activities, one can easily argue that Pakistan is facing a sapiens’ catastrophe.
