Since yesterday, the biggest talk of the town is none other than the suicide act of two teenager school students who committed suicide because their parents had not allowed them to get married. I mean at the age of hardly 16, with no degree in hand, they wanted to get married? Is that what we are teaching our children? Why the parents are not keeping a check on their children when they are spending their whole day on TV and internet? Why are we letting our children to get influenced by media? Where are the parents of our nation?
Teens are falling in love, school going children are talking about sex, boys are cheating on girls,
girls are showing off their bodies, a 12 year old guy is supporting gay marriages, teens are attempting suicide. What the hell is going on in our society?? I still remember the time when my 13 year old sister was in 6th grade and she told me that her class fellow broke up with her
boyfriend and I was like when I was of her age I could not even tie my hair.
What are we doing about it? Nothing. No one seems to care about it.
We only know one thing that whenever such thing happens, put all the blame on International media and you have done your duty. And that’s right too. What else do you expect from children who grow up watching intimate scenes and item numbers? But unfortunately
International media is not the only culprit now, some Pakistani movies are just heading of in the same direction. Item numbers, useless love stories, short clothes and Indian inspired personalities? Wake up everyone. This is not us. This is not our values.
It’s time to take a stand. We need to change our system. We need to change a lot of things but before that we need to change ourselves. We need to focus on the education system of our country that is promoting love stories more than education. We need to understand that education is not just making a child cram their text books, it is much more than that. It is about making a child so strong that he can differentiate between what’s good and what’s bad. It is about teaching them our values, moral as well as Islamic values.
All the bad things are happening due to the combined effects of media and lack of our Islamic and moral values. I totally agree with Will smith’s last Facebook status which says,
                            “Our world is officially broken. It’s time to take a stand.”
