We find many people looking "more Muslim" than others due to their outlook and activities in display, yet it's not a measuring tool for their level of faith , which is only known to Allah. However they consider ONLY themselves to be entitled to exercise control on religion, which is contested because authenticity of any opinion on religious matter is conditional to the reference and authority from Holy Scripture.
Allah has not authorized anyone to present their personal opinions to be Divine. The Jews and Christians were condemned for taking their scholars indulging in such practices as Lord (Rabb) (9:31). (Hence such blind following is Shirk, polytheism)
To control the spread of Corona Panadamac, experts advise preventive measures like social distancing and Quarantine. This have been out rightly rejected by Pakistani religious contractors. No amount of references from Holy Books or logic could convince them to temporarily suspend the prayer (Salah) congregations, though in the two Holiest Mosques, in Middle East, Turkey, Far East and all around the world these measures has been implemented without any debate.
The President of Pakistan contacted Al-Azhar which issued Edict (Fatwa) to suspend prayer congregations for public safety. Even this has been resisted by our Holy (Hollow) Men, who have no regard for public life.
There is need to deeply analyse this religious mindset of Pakistani clergy, which is fatal for this nation and country.
The Powerful Religious Establishment ( yes don't be surprised, it's reality ) mafia supported TTP, overtly and covertly (many big names) resulting in public sympathy despite huge loss of public life (over 70,000 lives lost in terrorism and over $100 Bn loss to economy). Some genuine Scholars opposed and were martyred by terrorists.
We cannot move forward as Pakistani and Muslim, unless we tackle this menace of this ignorant , extremist class who are in full control of religion and mislead more ignorant public. Islam is to be rescued.
Those who claim to be genuine Scholars of Islam should not sit home in silence like hypocrites. They must come forward and debate to convince ignorant ulema.
This requires deep study and concrete result oriented short term and long term measures at intellectual, governmental and societal level.
