East, West, Islam, and Matrimony

Marriage is considered a major event in east. It is joining of two families. It is considered a major milestone in a persons life. It is really is big deal. It is a one time event in persons life, without any plane b’s.

And therefore it is celebrated likewise, with full luxuries. And choice of partner is also done carefully.

All of this makes the marriage much harder and a very expensive business. But there is a problem in this deal. Human life and human behaviours often don’t go with this evenly. A person life comes to an end and likewise persons’ attitudes change. This makes the marriage a joke as it is considered a big deal.

So, when a partner dies or there is separation, then it is a disaster. And especially for the woman. It is said that the woman life is destroyed.

Now lets come to west. In west, marriage is a simple event which is important but partners’ lives don’t depend on it. Ages differences between partners is not a big deal. Marrying in much easier. If the marriage comes to an end, woman life is not over.

Interestingly, such is the situation in an Islamic society.

East which contains a major part of muslims, Islam has very little affects on this very important event. But wait a min, is the western system is inherited from Islam? Interestingly, no. But it is somewhat like Islam.

In west, human wisdom plays a great role in society behaviour. In east, customs are followed blindly and without thinking. Customs are followed just because these were followed by ancestors.

On the other hand, in islam, religous rules are followed with belives that these rules are optimum. And human life, society, and relations among humans is a very complex thing and human mind and wisdom can’t cover all aspects. So, here the religion comes for guidance. And Islam made the rules much easier for marriage. But muslims don’t follow these rules.

Hmmm, why?

Because, they value their customs more than Islam….

Please correct me if I am not….

Pakistan Army is Popular in Pakistan because…

From beginning, India is a constant threat to Pakistan and its sovereignty. India has exploited every opportunity to opportunity Pakistan, which made Pak Army more popular in Pakistani people.

Until now, it is the most deciplined disciplined organised, and well trusted department in Pakistan. It has arrived to help in all bad situations, and helped more than expected. It has left all the other organizations very behind, which is apparent in the current flood situation.

Though, in politics, Pakistan Army record is not too good, but mainly it is due to the some adventurous generals. Due to the few generals in past, it is wrong to blame the whole army for everything.

One the other side, when we see the performance of Pakistan Army in its own field, it is one of the best military in the world. In limited budget and equipment, Pakistan Army defended Pakistan from India on one side, and on the other side it fought against the terrorists in Swat, Dir, and Bunir districts. For anti-terrorism, Pakistan Army was not properly trained, but its performance was much higher than those of US and NATO.

US Army and NATO have the most advanced military and related equipment in the world and they are fighting the Afghan Taliban who use the out-dated weapons, and still Afghan Taliban are in winning position. On the other hand, Pakistani Taliban had unexpectedly advanced guns and communication systems and Pakistan Army is not too advanced in weapons and communications, but still Pakistan Army was able to eliminate the Pakistani Taliban. Their leaders escaped to Afghanistan besides the sealed border by NATO and US Army.

All of this makes Pakistan Army one of the best military in the world and very popular in Pakistani people.

Why Friends? A simple Answer to a friend…

Everyone need someone to share a lot of things with. If that one is from opposite gender then it is spouse and makes a family. Everything in life can’t be shared with spouse or opposite gender. Somethings need someone of same gender. It is a friend and it makes friendship. Friends can’t or should not be from family. Definition and area/circumference of family change with cultures and people. Everyone has good, bad, and stupid qualities and situations and spouse and friends are to trust and depend in such things.
