Muslims should stop spreading rumours, rumors affect peace and security - Shahar Qazi

The preparations for the birthday of Pangbar-e-Islam are in full swing. Eid-Miladunnavi will be celebrated this time on 18 October. However, religious places programs have started regarding this. In this episode, a program was organized in Kithore. In which Muslim religious leaders called titles in the glory of Prophet-e-Islam and gave the message of peace in peace to the people.

In the program Ulama Syed said that Jashn-e-Chirag is held in the joy of the birthday of Prophet-e-Islam. He said, 'O believers! If any liar or wicked person comes to you with any news, confirm it, lest you harm people in ignorance and later you will regret your actions.' He said that when the companions of the Prophet Muhammad took refuge in Abyssinia, they were safe. However, someone spread the false news that the Qureshi believers have become Muslims in Mecca. As a result, some of the companions returned to Mecca, where they found that the report was not accurate. As a result, he was persecuted by Qureshi. All this happened because of rumours.

Being a Muslim one should always verify and weigh the news brought by any person. The spread of fake news is never accidental which can be done for entertainment, rather it is always serious and has far-reaching effects. Islam hates it.

Shahrqazi Imam Ahmed said during this time that a Muslim should refrain from spreading rumours, which can be done only if a Muslim first confirms the news after hearing it. It took a lot of effort to substantiate what the Prophet actually said. Imam Muslim introduced his compilation of authentic hadith with a chapter entitled, "A series of verifications in which statements are accepted only from reliable sources. In the meantime, the message was also given to Muslims to engage with the media. So that People can keep an understanding of their good and bad in the mainstream.

Dr. Shamim Ahmed, Professor, JNU, said that what works as a source of information is that social media (both print and electronic) has the power to reach out to millions of people rather than media and especially literature. Most of the people, especially those who lack knowledge, believe everything available on the media and do not care to investigate it. And these vested interests create and circulate fake news on Muslims or Hindus and use them to create hatred among them for political gains. People believe these news and gradually begin to hate the other community, ultimately resulting in a hateful, judgmental mentality. Islam has always banned the spread of fake news since its early days.

It is an indisputable right of any society to enjoy peace and security. Anything disturbing the social peace must be removed immediately. Muslims should stop spreading rumours, as rumors affect peace and security and promote fear.

If oil prices do not come down, the pace of economic recovery will decrease: Hardeep Singh Puri

If oil prices do not come down, the pace of economic recovery will decrease: Hardeep Singh Puri

 India on Wednesday warned the world that if oil prices continue to remain high, the recovery in the global economy may be affected. At the same time, it urged Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries to take steps to reduce prices and ensure supply. Let us tell you that the prices of petrol and diesel in the country have reached an all-time high. Addressing CeraWeek's India Energy Forum, Petroleum Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that if fuel prices do not come down, the pace of recovery in the world economy will slow down.

In April last year, during the Corona epidemic, the prices of crude oil in the international market came down to $ 19 per barrel due to the decrease in demand due to the lockdown imposed in most countries of the world. Although the demand for oil increased this year due to rapid vaccination happening all over the world, then crude oil climbed to $ 84 per barrel. Puri said that due to the cost of fuel, there is a possibility of rising inflation. He said the country's oil import bill was $8.8 billion in the June 2020 quarter, which has increased to $24 billion this year. The only reason this happens is because of the cost of oil.

The Petroleum Minister said that the government believes that the availability of fuel should not only be continuous but it should also be affordable. The economic recovery has weakened after the devastating pandemic and is further threatened by high oil prices. India imports about two-thirds of its oil requirement from countries in West Asia. Therefore, it has urged OPEC countries that higher oil prices will lead to a rapid move towards alternative fuels, and in such a situation, these high prices will prove to be harmful for the producers only. Puri said he had raised the issue in the recent meetings with Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, the US, Russia and Bahrain.

Petrol and diesel prices hiked again

Two days later, on Wednesday, once again the prices of petrol and diesel were increased by 35 paise per liter. Thus fuel prices have reached an all-time high across the country. After the increase in prices, the price of petrol has reached a record level of Rs 106.19 per liter in Delhi and Rs 112.11 per liter in Mumbai. Whereas in Mumbai, diesel is getting Rs 102.89 per liter. Whereas in the national capital it costs Rs 94.92 per liter. After the increase of 35 paise per liter in vehicle fuel for four consecutive days, their price was not increased on Monday and Tuesday.

After the increase in prices on Wednesday, the price of petrol in all state capitals has gone up to Rs 100 per liter or more. While diesel has touched the level of hundreds in more than a dozen states. In Goa's capital Panaji and Jharkhand's capital Ranchi also, diesel crossed the Rs 100 per liter mark. The costliest fuel is in the border town of Ganganagar in Rajasthan where petrol is available at Rs 118.23 per liter and diesel at Rs 109.04 per litre. For the first time in the international market, the price of crude oil reached $ 84.43 per barrel on Wednesday. It was priced at $73.92 a barrel a month ago.
