The American dream and the lifestyle of Europe have been luring many from the developing countries, especially from South Asia. These people think that half of their problems will be solved just by getting an opportunity to go abroad.
The idea is problematic, and so is the thought process behind it. The idea is everyone has the right to think extraordinary for themselves, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But if the basis of achieving one’s goal is flawed then no matter how extraordinary the achievement might be, it gets infiltrated.
With the idea above, I want to draw your attention to a grave matter. You will be surprised to know that the maximum number of criminals(of foreign ethnicities) in the UK jails belong to Pakistan and that too being Muslims. The situation is alarming. You must be wondering what the reason behind it is?
Let’s go back to the desire of the European lifestyle among the people. It is also worthy to mention that people who don’t find anything in their country come to Europe in search of a means to earn a livelihood. Under the dire circumstances, they seek refuge in contacting a foreign resident and getting married to them for the nationality.
They resort to this means so that they don’t have to go through the checks and balances that they are otherwise liable to. Once they are officially declared as nationals, they don’t waste a minute staying in that marriage. They sign up for contractual marriages which is inherently wrong on so many levels.
These ‘nationals’ then bring their spouse or girlfriends from their home country and live a lavish life with them. The problem is that it is the first wife rather the contract wife that has to bear the brunt of the breakup of the marriage for the rest of her life. In many cases, the contract wife also bears children. This makes it even worse.
Likewise, in the case of women who come to Europe, the situation is somewhat the same. Once they attain foreign nationality, they leave their husbands by falsely accusing them of Domestic Violence. If they have children, in this case, the children are left helpless. The husbands fail to take the responsibility of these children, and these women leave the children in welfare homes where the conditions are worst. These children are scarred for life for not getting the affection of their parents.
I would like to request all the Muslim countries to make it mandatory for the Muslims to take an oath of always following the teachings of Islam in every aspect of their life and keep their values as their top priority.
