Do not judge me on 15 seconds


Letter August 07, 2010

LAHORE: This is with reference to Salman Ahmad’s article “Do not judge me on 15 seconds” (August 7). Whatever good the writer may be doing for the image of this country or Islam is all well and good, but it does not justify him using casual words for something like religion which warrants a certain level of respect. According to Mr Ahmed, he wants to present Islam as an enlightened religion full of beauty and truth. But surely for this he could have used words other than what he did. He could have used ‘beautiful’, ‘awesome’ or even ‘cool’. It would have been better for the musician to have realised his mistake instead of trying to further justify and explain what he said.
