An ever smiling and kind hearted Malik Mehraban finally met his LORD yesterday after brief illness in Redditch. He was unwell for last few days but kept praying and coming to Mosque for regular prayers. He was in Fajar prayer in Redditch mosque Thursday morning and came back home with chest pain and discomfort around his shoulder areas. He was brave enough to drive his car and managed to reach Alexendra hospital in Redditch with his wife. He was fully conscious as he was told that he had more than one heart attacks and needed immediate surgery because of blocked artries. Since no faciities for immediate heart surgery was avilable in the said hospital he was rushed to Worcester hospital, 25 miles from Redditch. However, he expired before doctors performed any surgery. His funeral will be held in Redditch today. The dead body would be flown back home and the second funeral would be in the afternoon in his native town, Dehri. May Allah bless him in the hereafter.
A friend of mine rang me up and said he couldn't celebrate Eid today because he was living in a Beralvi controlled area of Birmingham while rest of his family is in London where Wahabi people controlled affairs who had their Eid today. He said 'could these uncivilised and uncultured mullahs tell me what to do? 'They made my life horrible where could i go from here'. What was the point of fasting when the family could not sit together and celebrate the best Muslim festival on the same day. 'These people have divided us into many sects and now they are dividing families' What a shame some are fasting and others are celebrating Eid.
I didn't have any answer. I thought and thought long about it. One should not be intellectual while living with those people who are insensitive towards modern day issues and problems. The Eid controvery in UK and elsewhere in Europe has been flared up by our Mullahs who came from Pakistan, mainly from the remote and poor areas of the country. With little knowledge of the modern world they controlled our mosques and look at the mess they create every year. Over the years these Mullahs have become strong and they have successfully brain washed the Pakistani uneducated lot who have settled here, away from their native town and villages, looking for better future. We would have been much better without these mullahs here in UK.
I call them intellectually bankrupt. Doesn't matter if people will laugh at you for having two Eids. Who cares when you become a laughing stock among your white work colleagues who say 'why two Eids'. Thanks God schools are closed becuase of summer holidays otherwise councils have to release Muslims students for two days. These are the problems we have every year but 'mullahs don't care'.
How things improve then? A tricky question until you challenge mullahs. Wherever you are try to prevail and tell them 'stop messing we had enough' They have massive following but we have to make a start to turn things around. It is not that easy but at least we can tell Allah on the day of judgment we tried our best to get Ummah united by telling these mullahs 'stop messing we had enough'
