The Menace

by a l i

Caliph Ali Ibn Abi Talib, the 4th Caliph of the Muslims had immense wisdom. People who possess immense wisdom use simple words to say great things. He said and did many great things. One of his sayings that really makes a lot of sense today is : ” Two types of men are a menace to society, the ignorant man who is over religious and the educated man who is not religious at all.”

This makes a lot of sense in this day and age. Because every society is suffering from this menace. The highly educated are using their expertise to enhance themselves alone financially and giving nothing to the common man except ridicule. The ignorant are using religion to vent their frustrations through extremist activity.

Wish the decision makers would understand this and find a strategy to combat this menace.
