Random thoughts

Everybody is engaged in exploiting and looting the country. Both the rulers and the public are held equally responsible for this lawlessness and plunder. It must be obvious to everyone that when neither rulers nor public follow laws (or are held responsible), the result is chaos and corruption.

One story goes that there was once a raja who wanted to enforce law and order in his kingdom but the elite and the public were not willing to follow the rules and wanted to do whatever suited them. After the raja failed to convince the officers and public, an old, wise minister advised him to allow the people to do just as they pleased. So it became a free-for-all. Robbers, the corrupt, exploiters and extortionists had a heyday. Once the son of an officer got seriously injured in an accident and when he was brought to the hospital there were no doctors available to attend to him and he died. After a few days there was a robbery at the house of the head of the hospital. The robbers thrashed the inmates, stole all their belongings and vanished. The police were least bothered and did not take serious notice. Soon after, a fire broke out at the house of the chief of police but the fire-fighters were slow in reacting and the whole house was reduced to ashes. The sanitary workers refused to collect the garbage and the whole area stank, became contaminated and various diseases spread rapidly.

Even a child can differentiate between truth and a lie. As we all know, its opposite is lying. A lie is defined as something which one says despite knowing it to be incorrect and being against one’s conscience, belief, knowledge and iman. There are various proverbs on truth: “Nothing can harm the truth,” “The truth shines, the lie is black,” “The irony is that those who speak the truth often end up in trouble, while liars get away.”

In the Quran, Almighty Allah pronounced a curse on all liars in Surah Aal-e-Imran, Ayat 61. As if once is not enough, in the Surahs Shura, Naml, Taha, Tur, Saf, Munafiqun, Raad, Baqara, Zukhuf and Taubah, and ten times in Surah Mursalat the Almighty has pronounced a curse on all liars. In Surah Baqarah, it is not only the telling of truth that is stressed, but also the need to keep a promise.

In my school days we used to read classical Urdu stories by writers like Deputy Nazir Ahmad and Maulvi Muhammad Ismail Meruthi. One interesting story was about mice and a cat. This particular cat was terrorising the mice, every now and then catching and eating one of them. The mice called a meeting to find a solution. One of them suggested that they put a bell around the neck of the cat so that its whereabouts would be known and they could run to safety. An old mouse then quietly enquired as to who would volunteer to do the job. Pin-drop silence ensued and there were no volunteers. There then followed the sound of the cat approaching and they all ran to safety. The present political situation and the actions of those in power remind me of this old story and I wonder if someone will have the courage to bell the cat.

“To err is human; to forgive divine.” A blunder of devastating consequences was the murder of Genghis Khan’s messengers and Chinese Muslim traders by the Governor of Utrar, brother-in-law of Alauddin Khwarizm Shah. It ultimately resulted in the complete destruction of all the Islamic countries of Central Asia, the murder of more than a million Muslims and the razing of many famous cities to rubble.

In more recent times we see the sons of Shah Jahan fighting for succession to the throne. Dara Shikoh made the mistake of dismounting from his elephant and riding a horse. Not seeing him upon the elephant, his army thought he had been killed, lost hope and gave up the fight. Dara Shikoh was arrested, blinded and brutally murdered by Aurangzeb.
