Growing number of illegal mosques in Karachi

Religion is the most critical topic to discuss in Pakistan. When it comes to criminal activities associated with religious figures or parties, there is a complete silence and restraint. No one is willing to speak or pinpoint any thing that is going wrong and harmful for the citizens. Our love for the religion is not taken seriously and we feel like hostage to some disputed clerics/religious figures.

In recent days especially after the events of 9/11, the inclination of common Muslims towards religion increased to a very large extent. This inclination prompts some quacks that started cashing this new trend. Every one was interested in knowing more about the religion but this has created a great business opportunity for quacks.

This is to be noted that in recent days, lot many illegal mosques were erected. In city like Karachi where there is already ample number of mosques in major densely populated areas, there is no need of additional mosques. The new mosques are being opened rapidly by illegally converting residential plots, shopping centers, bungalows, and alike.

This is a fact that our Prophet (peace be upon him) constructed first mosque after purchasing land from the owners. This example is not being following by their so called followers.

Most of the newly constructed illegal mosques are clearly violating civic laws and have no certificate from KBCA or other authorities. In my humble opinion all those religious organizations registering these mosques should be warned and given legal notice to either close these mosques or amalgamate these in nearby legal facilities. If they fail to do so, then legal action should be taken and their right to register these mosques should be taken back. Furthermore, many trusts are being registered with the name of these illegal mosques by government authorities. These authorities must ensure that the mosques are not erected on illegal plots or facilities.

The other important issue is illegal use of loudspeakers that has made life of nearby residence miserable. The loudspeakers are used to run tapes for hours. This is strongly suggested that loudspeakers should be allowed for Azan or announcement only. The rules do exist which should be strictly enforced, otherwise registration of these organizations should be suspended.

If proper action is not take, I am afraid the city will see a new wave of sectarian violence, which will be beyond control of the law enforcing agencies. We are Muslims and love our religion and know what is right and what is wrong. We must discourage these elements by boycotting them and avoiding help or funding to such illegal elements. Supporting such elements is a crime and sin and we must not fell in the trap. May Allah SWT give us guidance.
