Change will come Sooner or Later
Thank you for your excellent editorial in Islamic Voice, July 2012. (Prisoners of the Past). Change will come because it is inevitable. The only thing permanent in this world is Change. Allama Iqbal says, “subat eik thagayur ko hai zamane mein”. Change will come, but it will not come from the heart of Islam – it will come from Turkey, Malaysia, Indonesia and hopefully from India. Lord Tennyson had said: “Old order changeth yielding place to new, And God fulfils his desires in many ways.” One has to look at the great change which took place in Europe after the success of the Protestant Movement, We need to free our dynamic, vibrant and forward looking religion from the strangle hold of persons who have made a mockery of its principles of justice and equity. Let us hold fast to the values and principles of
Islam and learn to think, debate and reflect on the present status of our people who seem to be at the receiving end everywhere in the world.
