Today we are living in the age of information where mass media is a major source of information and entertainment. There are many debates that media is destroying our culture and many say that the frivolous media has changed our lives, our language has become vulgar and everything we are doing is against our culture. If we ask people, what our culture is, they hide behind Islam and its values, but are we following Islamic values, Islamic rules and regulations? The answer would be, no we don’t, and we are just busy in destroying Pakistan and Islam by ‘Particularism’ (firqa parasti). I would say stop blaming the media or anyone else, first decide what culture we would like to follow, and then we can talk about what is harming us.
