When we talk about stars, it comes into one's mind, of a person who is a popular performer, a very famous and successful person, especially in the field of entertainment and sports. Stars may also be the most important or proficient person of a group. Once a person holds the title of the greatest star, he will automatically have the greatest role to the society. We couldn’t possibly deny that with great power, comes great responsibility.
Lately, people were fussing about Michael Jackson who passed away on 25th June at the age of 50. There are plenty of sketchy reports updating MJ’s complex and his mysterious personal affairs. His fans from all over the world had expressed profound grief and sorrow over the sad demise of The King of Pop. A public memorial is also going to be held next week in Los Angeles.
But what people don't realize is that there was another upsetting death at the same day when MJ passed away. We were blinded by the big news reported by mass medias and tabloids.
Expert Pakistani politician and Islamic scholar passed away at the age of 95. Mian Tufail Muhammad was the second amir of Jamaat Islami, a political party which promotes Islamic values and practices. He was very close and attach to Sayyid Abul A'ala Maududi physically and emotionally. He left this world leaving behind his 4 sons, 8 daughters, grand and great grand children who live around Pakistan, Middle East and USA.
An uncountable and priceless contribution from the late Mian Tufail for the sake of Islam and in political areas would be long remembered especially Pakistani and Muslims society.
We pray to Allah to rest the departed soul in peace and grant strength to the family members to accept this permanent loss with redha and calmness.
