Muslims & WhatsApp Debates

| December 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

It was an excellent piece, “Muslims and the Internet” in Islamic Voice, September 2017 issue. It Is not just the internet that the Muslims are using, to criticize other sects and other religions, but these days, What’s App is the new tool for Muslims to discuss and debate about non-issues. These forum groups that they form are a big nuisance and there is a flood of negative articles, comments and opinions that get forwarded from the group members. Why is it that we Muslims are always on the defensive, reflect ourselves as the victims and blame people from other communities for the troubled state that we are in today? We need to reflect and reform ourselves, before we even think of criticizing or reforming people from other religions.
