Drug abuse in Islamic Paradise

1 Die after Drinking Cough Syrup in Pakistan , is the latest from the Islamic Paradise of Pakistan

We the outsiders tend to believe that Pakistan being an Islamic state is a paradise on earth when it comes to practicing the directives of Islam. Like the Sharia law, Islamic banking, Strict dress codes Observance of Ramdan fasting and their daily rituals and practices.

The news which is reported now says that, around 15 people in Pakistan died after consuming cough syrup. The cough syrup is believed to be containing poisonous contents.  All the victims consumed the medicine to get the ‘kick’ not for any medical purpose. The same news link reminds us of the incidents happened in January this year, in which around hundred people died after consuming medicines for heart diseases in a very similar way.

Now where is the influence of the much hyped Islamic discipline which prevents people from consumption of toxic substances like alcohol and drugs? Why people fail to follow the diktat of the one and only true god of the universe?  Why people don’t pay heed to his words when there is absolutely no second chance to repent and escape from the eternal hell? This shows that, though people try to follow and believe all these religious ideas in the outer layers of their minds, many other inner layers of their minds refuse to accept them.

People tend to fall for lower pleasures because of their innate weaknesses.  This cannot be corrected just by passing only religious diktats. You need to develop a way of life, a culture capable of refining people. Artificially imposed restrictions can only create hypocrites. Higher knowledge, based on logic and free thinking need to be built in societies to truly refine them and uplift them. There is no other alternative to knowledge of the Self.
