Living in an age where drinking socially has become a norm and gambling dens and casinos fast getting legalised and lawful, being a non-gambler and a totalitarian makes one witness the bizarre gazes from the so called ‘civilized’ and ‘evolved people’. It often makes one hear words like regressive and ultra-orthodox.
The booklet written by Muhammad Iqbal Siddiqui, unlike many books, takes on the topic intellectually and explains in a succinct and lucid manner the adverse effects behind the prohibition, by citing both the temporal and the spiritual harms brought along by the intoxicants and gambling.
A good read for the children who have just begun to interact with the society they are living in.
