Would u mind plz explain the rigid and backward approach towards religion and life?
If u mean to say that dont obey the rules and regulations of Islam then I dont have any words to say to u. U can see the behaviour of peoples in Non-Muslims countries. Look what are they doing? After a long and solid research now they are trying to follow the Islam's rules and u know which one? The same to whom u r saying the backward. U know why? bcz they want to safe their children, parents, peoples and their lifes. I think u know very well the increment ratio of peoples being muslims last couples of years in the world specially in Non-Mulsims countries Like USA, UK etc. They have been understand that every rule of Islam has a logic but I will say again you should have mind to understand the logic. to understand the logics behind the Islam Rules you may ask any scholar, Molvi, Mufti, Aalim-e-Deen. I will narrate only one example here. I visited Tariq Raod (Karachi) last Wednesday I saw a lot of girls without hijab and in very tight, light, short, sleevless dresses. Is it right? They are just exploring themselves. Aren't They? Why? Why? Why? Everyone was looking them even I was doing the same. But When i realised that if my own sister wearing these types of dresses and everyone is looking to her then what will be the my reaciont? I was very shamed that time.
Listen Mr. Nikama Every Rule of Islam gives the protection and has a logic.
