Half-hearted apology

Friday, September 28, 2012

Dr Zakir Naik,s apology for his comments vilifying Ganapati is no apology or expression of regret at all. It reminds us of Salman Rushdie’s apology for writing what he did in his book “Satanic Verses”. He had “regretted profoundly the distress the publication has occasioned to the sincere followers of Islam…..” He had regretted the fact that the book caused distress; not the fact that he wrote it. The Muslim world never accepted this as an apology and the author stands as persona non-grata to the community.

Dr Naik, a la Rushdie, is sorry only for the fact that he may have hurt the sentiments or feelings of any person and not for his words vilifying the deity.
Home minister R.R. Patil has rightly asked the police to examine Naik’s statement to see if a case can made out against him as demanded by Hindi Janjagran Samiti and others. It is noteworthy that internet Muslims are already condemning Dr Zakir Naik’s views.

You will have to make a few adjustments at home and in your relationship with others if you want happiness. Things that you do or say are going to go a long way in cementing your love relationship. Your mate will appreciate your efforts.
