St. Gaga? | The Muslim Times

Our media in this country is also guilty of this kind of over publicizing and giving so much importance to the mentioned media personalities and sports men and women that the youth end up idolizing these rather than God, the CREATOR and/or morally sound people!!!

In fact, they present such an ambivalent attitude that it leaves our youth quite confused. They could have problems about what is morally right and what is not. On one hand some of these questionable personalities claim to be supposedly 'saved' but, on the other, they are unwed mothers and fathers. And this is just one example.

Another example are the kinds of music and dances that are aired daily on our TV channels. Those dances and their posturing make me cringe and quite embarrassed and my first and immediate reaction to them is to switch off the offensive t.v. or try checking for an alternative. Unfortunately, this is an exercise in futility since nearly all of them are airing similar things and that too, at a time when youngsters would be watching!

One question - what are we trying to achieve vis-a-vis our younger generation? Anybody given that a serious thought?
