29 Ramadan 2013: Media

Because today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups… So I ask, in my writing, What is real? – Philip K. Dick


Media in this case, is what we generally refer to as “excessive talk in one or more views” including discussions and talks by people through social media and mobile avenues. Although it has many benefits, one cannot help but observe, feel and even reflect on the potential negative effects this can have on different levels of society.

In this Ramadan, we ask god to protect and forgive us from blindness followed by responsible use of social media and mobile applications which takes into account that even “typed” words, “marketing” and “news” will be accounted for in our inventory of good / bad actions and words taken in life.
