Now let me be clear about this (as Obama would say): I’ve got nothing against kissing, particularly if it’s between men and women. It’s the kissing of men by men that I find offensive, even if it’s done in months other than Ramadan. But the recent publicizing of a case in which a LUMS girl playfully pecked a boy’s cheek (when she thought no one was looking) has again generated adverse publicity for the country (something it could do without). So what happened? Another student hiding somewhere photographed the scene and distributed it throughout the world, which led to LUMS permanently banning kissing of boys by girls (and vice versa).
Of course, the fact that the incident took place during the month of fasting made it worse. You can’t kiss your boyfriend (or even your husband or brother) when you’re fasting, as all of us know. But suppose the two were not fasting? As I just said, they thought they were alone and no one could see what they were doing. I agree that kissing in public cannot be tolerated by the average Pakistani, who in any case is terribly disturbed whenever he sees a woman (especially if she’s not covered by a burqa).
However, I don’t mind it when a man kisses his wife or his daughter at the airport when one of them is leaving the country. That kind of thing happens all the time (sometimes even at railway stations). But LUMS should also have banned kissing between men and men (and also between girls and girls, since I assume there are some females who would find it terribly offensive). In the meantime Iâ€™m waiting for some Saudi/Waziristan mullah to issue a fatwa banning kissing between husbands and wives even when theyâ€™re alone in their bedrooms.

In the seventh century I’m sure they used something to clean the body. With the availability of soap today, it doesn’t make sense to avoid using it, not just by mullahs but many Hindus, Christians, Sikhs etc. As for Muslims, they don’t take a bath altogether.
Yusha: “Just take a bath daily with soap.” I don’t remember reading about anyone in the seventh century using soap.
Totally misinterpreted i believe. For starters, i am not in any way patronizing any individual. My bros, who would hate these make believe, self styled MULLAHs than those who have actually fought against this disease.
Now coming to the lvl of Eeman. I was just highlighting the fact that where there is no doubt that to Judge what lvl of eeman an indl has lies totally in the domain of Allah Almighty, nevertheless, he did explain it for us the lvls of eeman. Why would the same be explained to us if there was no need. There is a need. The need for us to understand and not judge others, but judge ourselves …. the reason i brought it out was not to judge anyone else … but only to rekindle the fact we have to judge our lvl of eeman ourselves bro.
There is absolutely no justifications regarding things that Allah has forbidden for us as Muslims. And we need to Mullah, or Mufti to tell it to us.
It depends on who the mullah is. Some are very nice while others preach the most ridiculous garbage possible.
im not anti mullah though
that must be clear
Pakistanis love other Pakistanis….
Many don’t take a bath daily and those who do don’t use soap for some reason. There should be no need for anyone to wear deodorant. Just take a bath daily with soap.
investigative reporters should find out why many of those mullahs who judge others –why they smell bad and dont wear deodorant
HELLO ALL OF TOHSE WHO ARE MAKING ISLAM “A JOKE” PLEASE GROW UP !!!! GROW UP PLEASE FOR GOD SAKe
THE PERSON WHO DISTRIBUTED THE PICTURE IS ” GUILTY” I AGREED WITH MAHRU AND OTHERS EXCEPT THE PERSON ” SHAKIR LAKHANI JIN KO HAR EK SE TAQLEEF HOTI HAI !!! MALOOM NAHI KYON ?
BUT IN MY POINT OF VIEW MOST OF THE MULLAS ARE THOSE WHO DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ISLAM AND I HAVE SEEN THIS!!!!SO DONT JUDGE ANYONE ITS ALLAH WHO JUDGE HIS CREATIONS
@Ice Awan: What doe Islam say about disgracing someone by taking such a picture and distributing it? General is correct. The girl who distributed the picture is a loser. Also, please avoid telling other people which level of eman they are at. That is for Allah SWT to judge.
