"........as we enter Ramadan, and remember the tremendous challenges from which countries in the Islamic world suffer: the waste and corruption, the underdevelopment, and the lack of job creation.
Many of us have no problem with wholeheartedly engaging in the rituals of Islam, while ignoring the awesome challenges that we face. Some of us claim to care about Islam, while saying nothing or doing nothing to alleviate our difficulties and catastrophes, as if they're unsolvable.
If we label ourselves an Islamic world, and fail to act in a way that betters this civilization, it's an exercise in futility. Some might want to celebrate their religion, very few are willing to work hard to promote a better tomorrow for the Islamic world."
Exactly my sentiments. I could not put it any better. Thank you to The Daily Star, Lebanon, for this editorial "As the month of Ramadan begins, the Islamic World is a shambles".
