Marina mahathir menulis sesuatu pagi ini. Klik sini 1. Dia terkesima dengan kenyataan seorang Pope dan seorang Uskup Agung Canterburry. Ia berkenaan komentar mereka mengenai sistem ekonomi pada hari ini.
Dia memetik kata-kata Pope Francis dan Archbishop of Canterburry seperti berikut :
The former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, warned that the ease at which money, in its virtual form, not in exchange for actual goods and services, is available has led to much misery among people.
Most recently, Pope Francis talked about the same thing, how the pursuit of money for its own sake has brought with it “a culture where the weakest in society suffer the most” and often, those on the fringes “fall away”, including the elderly, who he said were victims of a “hidden euthanasia” caused by “neglect of those no longer considered productive”.
Teransang dengan kenyataan superficial tersebut, Marina melontarkan persoalan berikut :
I have yet to hear the Muslim equivalent of this, of concern for a global system that is increasing insecurity of people everywhere.
Mungkin Buku di bawah ini tentang Sistem Kewangan Islam sedikit sebanyak boleh membantu dirinya :
Instead, I hear a different insecurity, of one where there are constant so-called moral attacks, usually by imagined assailants. Where limited interpretations of religion are to be enforced because otherwise the religion will disappear, despite evidence to the contrary.
In some ways, these self-appointed guardians of religion have reason to worry.
