The recent narrow 4-5 decisions of American Supreme Court has shocked the World. While those advocating homosexuality and gay rights were obviously jubilant, many in USA and outside were in shock. To them it was unbelievable that America with a slogan of “In God we trust” will go so radically opposite to the God’s rules and the nature.
The judgement raises serious questions about the competency, credibility and even integrity of some of the judges. Without first defining the most basic features of “marriage” the judges went on to create their own definition giving it an altogether new color! Marriage is redefined as “Union”; a union which makes two greater than the sum of two! What a joke and what a rubbish definition of marriage! If I were the examiner and someone gives this definition of marriage I will certainly give him no more than Zero!
American Judiciary has shown numerous flaws and lacunae and its seems as enslaved as American administration, bureaucracy, business and media! There are blatant terrorism against “unwanted” or “hostile” individual. For example Dr. Aafia against whom no case could be brought except snatching and pointing rifle towards an American soldier with no evidence of her finger prints etc. she was sentenced to 86 years in rigorous solitary jail while the American Government in collaboration with Musharraf Government was responsible for killing of her 6 month old son, abducting 2 1/2 year old Maryam and keeping her 7 year old Ahmed in jail with severe torture. She herself was also subjected to severe torture, violence and physical abuse. The case of snatching pointing refile by this extremely frail and weak lady in jail is also bogus. But as long as the victim is a Muslim or Black etc every thing is kosher and halal except those who agree to dance at the tunes of propagandist then you may be even granted “Nobel Prize” like that of Malala who repeatedly lied about not having girls schools in Swat or Pakistan. Swat is full of numerous girls schools!
Male and female gender are seen in the entire earthly kingdom. Man, animal, bird, worm, plant have all this differentiation. Without this most basic biological distinction and differentiation the species will not grow and propagate. There are very powerful behavioral and emotional characteristics based on genetics, hormones, physical and mental developments. And these differences can be seen at very early stages of development. The physical development and characteristics are in harmony with the role and the works required by each gender.
Man being the crown of the creation has many distinguishing features based on the gender differentiation. This of course includes the distinct powerful institution of marriage and human relations i.e. husband, wife, father, mother, brother, sister, uncle, cousin etc. And all this is very natural. The American Supreme Court’s decision is a devastating blow to the very basic human institutions and to the very fabric of human society! Marriage is not seen in animal and plant kingdom. Marriage and associated phenomena are responsible for “family life”, society and all associated colorful activities. Same Sex, Equal Sex etc are attractive slogans. But if that was the case then why American parliament has very few women? Likewise why American armed forces have very few women, Why there are far too few female doctors as compared to male doctors in America? Respecting the gender differences does not mean discriminating against one sex over other! In some respect females are superior while in other males are! Recognizing emotional, behavioral and physical differences is wise and just and not the other way. Ignoring these differences is like eating through nose and seeing through ears! People can have equal rights but not the “same rights”. A lay person can not be given the responsibility of treating the patients and flying the airplanes; here distinction is made on the basis of education and training etc. Father can not be mother and mother can not be father! Quran clearly respects feminine characteristics; for example in case of a witness it requires 2 females not because female has less intellect but because they can freely mutually consult each other; the reason clearly mentioned in Quran. Similarly females are exempted from congregational prayers keeping in view of their duties as mothers etc.
Homosexuality is not an entirely new phenomenon. Its as old as from the time of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham). His nephew Lot was also a prophet. Lot’s nation had developed the habit of homosexuality. They had lost interest in marriages and had no shame in declaring their preferences. Quran e majeed provides vivid description of destruction of people of Lot with rain of stones; each stone marked for each individual.
Is there no punishment for homosexuality today? Homosexuality has brought along with it numerous medical and social problems! It has also cost billions and billions Dollars to the Governments and the people! Homosexuality has brought along with it a debilitating disease Acquire Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Because of this immune deficiency our body is not able to resist many different infections. Some of these infections may lead to cancer. The AIDS virus infects not only our defense cells such CD4 lymphocytes but also macrophages and some brain cells. The autopsy or postmortem examination has revealed over 90% AIDS patients having some form of brain involvement. Various psychological and mental health problems are therefore not surprising. Many innocent such as newborn babies and recipients of blood products had acquired these serious diseases as “friendly fire” or bystanders! The hospitals and clinics in USA are cramped with AIDS patients. Huge amount of medial bills are paid to them through insurance system thus laying enormous burden on every individual. Socially homosexuality has ruined numerous families. Wives are shocked and dismayed to find their husbands gay attitude and relations! Of course with destruction of family children are the most sufferers!
Homosexuality is thus not an individual problem or benign phenomenon of selection of one of the behaviors. Its has profound negative effects on individual, family, society and economy. The question is; Is this less severe punishment than the stones of the people of Lot? One Urdu poet Jigar Muradabadi had nicely put “ The folly of intellect has shown these days where man has been reduced while the shadows have enlarged.
