‘Custodians’ of Pilgrims

Federal minister as well as secretary for religious affairs admitted corruption in Hajj 2010 case. They have accepted the allegations against them based on corruption in pilgrims’ accommodation in Saudi Arabia thereby describing that corruption was lesser than previous years. This is not a new thing, but a successful revision of their’ former office bearers’ attitudes, with the only difference that the new ones have tried to ‘serve’ the pilgrims with far more ‘devotion’ than the previous ones. The credibility of Mr. Hamid Saeed Kazmi has already been assessed by his famous ‘quote’, “Moahday koi Quran Hadith nahin hotay.”(Agreements are not heavenly things.) He has reiterated this claim in various TV shows all over the world.

I havn’t offered any prayer in his imamat but know and assert that he had been praying to Allah Almighty to bestow better and better leaders upon the country. But when he was given power, his privileges allured him away of his ideal side. There are many followers (murids) of Mr. Kazmi. Many of them would be reading these words but the point to ponder is, “Can anyone trace the corruption of this kind in Islamic history? Does Islam teaches us to deceive the lay man? Hajj is the biggest Muslim pilgrim in the world where people go for getting their sins vanished away. What can we expect from the leaders’ team which has left behind worst examples of their operational as well as ethical deeds. We must think before supporting such persons, because how much smaller the issue is, liability goes to the incharge. Top of the ladder has turned worst and we must play our own role in our individual and communal capacity to eradicate the evils out of established Muslim ethos. When will these self-proclaimed Allamas start thinking for Muslim community? When will they try to mend themselves? Mr.  kazmi swore to God in front of all nation that he is not corrupt. This was preceded by accepting in court that the corruption is lesser than past. If Ex-DG was to handle all affairs of Hajj, then what is the Minister’s role in this department? All affairs can be handled by various project DGs. At least his one resign can save millions from tax payers’ money. And in my humble opinion, this is the only way left for him to re-establish his credibility as a religious scholar.

  1. a.a hope u all well reading this.This is really a piece of shame for us claiming that we are the superior Ummah no doubt about that but who will come to prove that.The followers of all other religions dont waste even single of our mistakes to let us down in the world.We are fighting against the so called war on terror,that is an initiative to disturb our independence .We are uprooting ourselves on the deeds of others.They are offering money for our pride,dignity, superiority,respect.They are making us religious orphans.Our religion (ALHUMDULILLHA) is the best of all,we have been given the true and real path to success.We should bow before ONE ALMIGHTY ALLAH.Whenever we are in trouble ,we look for survival towards so called super powers instead of bowing before THE CREATOR ,dont even let such who never even admit that HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DO EVERY THING.From what we can prove that we are the true followers of,NABI (SAW),THE PROPHET ,NEVER LET HIS UMMAT DOWN EVEN IN HIS DAY & NIGHT PRAYERS.It is really embarrassing for us that we are not doing any thing to prove ourselves the true followers .May ALLAH Bless us the right path,courage to follow the ight path.amin!
