Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is a 'Mercy' to the whole world (Rahmathullil Aalameen). Muslims are the followers of that great 'Mercy' and they are fortunate to be his Ummath for the betterment of this life and life hereafter. He is the final messenger and "seal of prophets", whom Allah sent for the guidance of the whole mankind.
While he was very strong in upholding and propagating the oneness of Allah as per His commandment, he was very soft in dealing with all affairs of lives of the people in both Duniya and Akhirah matters. He brought an uncivilized people into light from the darkness. He brought about a rich civilization out of his great message. That's the reason why, even his deadliest enemies used to call him as "Al-Ameen"(most trusted one). He is most unparalleled & matchless personality on the earth (Ashraful Khalq).
As far as a Mo'min (believer) is concerned, he should be loved by him more than his self, his parents, his families, his properities, his each & everything. His teachings are our ways & lights.
Even a single word or deed that defames or despicable his great personality is not easily digestible & it should be strongly slated & lambasted in the way as it should be.
Our intellectual properties, tangible properties, human resources, unified strengths, powers etc. should be utilized for defending his sacred personality. But, all these should be within the Islamic & legal boundaries without harming others or damaging anything. Strong adherence to Islamic values & respect to our systems/laws should all times be remembered because the Prophet (Pbuh) is our role model for each & everything.
Mash'Allah, that's what we observed from the good reactions of our people & others alike in Karnataka & other parts of India & gulf countries after Suvarna News TV's Ajith Hanumakkanavar spitted the venomous bubbles against our Prophet (Pbuh). A wide protests in a legal & very democratic way are on the move in many parts of Karnataka, largely in the coastal regions of DK, Udupi, Bhatkal etc. NRI muslims & other compatriots of different faiths in gulf countries including in Saudi Arabia are also on the active mode in this regard.
We need to accelerate our agitations against his mindless remarks on organizational or individual basis (like submitting complaints, total discouraging his TV channel, filing case in courts, complaint in ministry of information & broadcasting etc.). Also we need to see him to be booked under the relevant law of the land & to be arrested.
However, our abiding to the system/law should not be treated as weakness by any authorities & State Government. The government & concerned authorities should take this matter seriously so that peace & order shall prevail in the society. Please note that the defamatory remarks uttered by Ajith is heinous & very serious in nature.
Let us hope for the justice and equity.
