Here is yet another example of an oft-repeated phenomenon: whenever there is any problem, declare that it was caused by rebellion from Allah, and that the only remedy is more Islam. This is a recurring feature of Islamic history, and it leads to ever-increasing fanaticism and violence.
“Root cause of ills is deviation from Islam: JI,” from The Nation (Pakistan), August 29 (thanks to Twostellas):
LAHORE — Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Syed Munawar Hasan has said that the root cause of all the ills confronting the country is deviation from Islam, the corrupt rulers and the promotion of evils in the society.
Pakistan had been achieved for building up a model Islamic state for the entire world but the rulers pushed the country in the opposite direction and the whole nation was facing the consequences, he said while addressing the congregation at the Mansoora mosque following the completion of the Holy Quran in Taraweeh.
Syed Munawar Hasan said that Islam is a complete code of life but the Muslims today are facing disgrace and ignominy due to drifting away from the Quran.
