Corona Tagline Termed ‘Un-Islamic’, LHC Asks Council Of Islamic Ideology To Weigh In
Lahore High Court Chief Justice Muhammad Qasim Khan has asked the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) to submit its opinion on the choice of words in the Covid tagline ‘Corona sey darna nahi, larna hai’ (Don’t fear Corona, fight it), following a petition that termed the same anti-Islamic.
The Chief Justice noted that the CII would brainstorm on the issue in its next scheduled meeting and let the prime minister, president and the court know about it, Dawn reported.
According to a petition filed with the court, the tagline, being used in the electronic and print media, other sources of information did not contain the right words. He maintained that no one is capable of fighting the God’s will and that the words being used challenge the ‘supremacy of God’. He pleaded to the court to have the use of the words banned in all forms of media.
The Chief Justice observed that according to the Constitution’s preamble, the supremacy belongs to Allah, adding the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the perfect example of how Allah’s injunctions are implemented. He then added that the parliament had limited supremacy as compared to Allah’s ultimate supremacy.
