Esteemed Islamic scholar Ml Sulaimaan Ravat says people have become obsessed with wanting to flaunt and put every aspect of their life on social media.
Ml Ravat was commenting about a number of incidents that have emerged on various social media platforms including altercations at malls, defamatory posts implicating prominent individuals, using fake disabilities to get special treatment and the speedster who drove over 308km/h.
There are also concerns that while these incidents happens in various communities, Muslims have come under the spotlight recently with actions that are contrary to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Ml Ravat says the need to share everything on social media needs to be addressed.
“Why have people become so obsessed with wanting to put everything on social media. If you see a fight, I am not saying its right for people to be fighting in public and of course it’s not right for Muslims as well. But people are human. What kind of a mind when looking at something like that will decide to video it and then circulate the video. Who does something like that and why? Have we lost all sense of decency?"
Ml Ravat says the inclination to share photos of accident and videos of family disputes is abhorrent, disgusting, and unbecoming especially of Muslims.
