Classic example of kutnami and okarone pichhone laga from supposed sports journos still incapable of writing a properly descriptive match report that can help us put the match statistics in context. One needs to investigate the FACTS properly and then report them fairly. Neither thinly veiled backbiting nor unsubstantiated rumor or suspicion mongering contributes to the real credibility of a report.

I think our so called reporters AND everyone else, including us civilians, would do well to revisit some of the Qur'anic verses at the heart of Adab.

Quote:
"O you who believe, if a wicked person brings any news to you, you shall first investigate, lest you commit injustice towards some people, out of ignorance, then become sorry and remorseful for what you have done." (49:6)

"O you who believe, you shall avoid any suspicion, for even a little bit of suspicion is sinful. You shall not spy on one another, nor shall you backbite one another; this is as abominable as eating the flesh of your dead brother. You certainly abhor this. You shall observe GOD. GOD is Redeemer, Most Merciful." (49:12)

"O you who believe, no people shall ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or call each other names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. Anyone who does not repent after this, these are the transgressors." (49:11)

"And the example of the bad word is that of a bad tree chopped at the soil level; it has no roots to keep it firm." (14:26)

"You shall not treat the people with arrogance, nor shall you roam the earth carefree. GOD does not like the arrogant showoffs." (31:18)
