Intellectual Enslavement..


Thousands of Afghans attacked an American base where Korans were burned accidentally..
The books have inadvertently thrown into the trash, and Afghans clustered around the base, fired in the air and threw stones; commander of NATO forces in the country apologized and ordered an investigation..
Demonstrators show copies of the Quran allegedly set alight by U.S. soldiers.

If the "Books" are burnt; We can print many many more.. But if minds are enslaved, No one; whatsoever, can enlighten..!!

Once in a home-move; I had astonishingly observed how Afghanistan and Pakistani porters dealt with Quran and other "Characteristically-Decorated" Islamic books; with lots of respect and care.. Their behavior had unconsciously lots of controversial idolatries; which are clearly forbidden in Islam.. Yet, the illiterate and poor guys do not know..

What happens in Afghanistan and Pakistan is a deliberate "Intellectual Enslavement" under the "Banners" of Islam.. This is only in favor of corrupt and outdated Politicians, Military and Bureaucrats.. Ignorant and half-literate Imams are comprehensively included too..!!

Is there any difference from the darkness of the Medieval Times..?

Should Muslims stand against.. or they all caught the virus..??

Many of the circulated copies of Quarn among non-Arabic-speakers, with translated meanings and elaborations in their annotations and footnotes; are not reviewed, accredited, or approved by any notable authority; but local ones.. Many Imams and Teachers in the thousands of Maddrasah’s (Religious Schools) are using outdated curriculums, bizarre syllabuses and freak teaching methods.. The widespread hysterical violence and ignorant reactions are the obvious outcomes of inadequate upbringing systems and educational strategies; if any..!!

Many speaks on the Muslim Uprising, represented by the cheerful gestures of closing code, satellite stations and organized events.. Regretfully, none of those reflects Islamic family code, Islamic urge on hierarchal epistemism or Islamic public accountability.. I strongly doubt that who endorses the said uprising, understands Islam the way it should..!

Decades ago, a common joke was well known in Egypt.. (A Hajj (pilgrim) would be known by his wrongdoings..!!) This folkloric perception reflects how pilgrimage is a license to be trustworthy by the naïve commons, despite what actually a person does..!

Between Illiterature and Poverty lay all evils..!
