A video clip is doing rounds on social media showing a well-known cleric of a particular sect came out defying that the earth moves around the sun!
Unbelievable, how confidently Haji Imran Attari, a prominent cleric, who often appears on the Madni Channel, opposed the proven scientific fact when boys on the show were discussing earth’s movement.
For the whole world, May 31 was a historic day as NASA’s astronauts for the first time in history have launched from American soil in a commercially built and operated American crew spacecraft on its way to the International Space Station.
And here in our part of the world, we tend to get this viral clip!
He said that our ‘Alaa Hazrat’ has proved that the world doesn’t revolve around the Sun and went on to add that students should not follow Science or Geography.
It is the basic science taught to 2nd-grade students about earth movent in the solar system!
it is very unfortunate what this cleric has quoted in the children’s program making all his education and religious knowledge in question.
The producer of the program must seek an apology for spreading wrong information and must include a competent authority for guiding children.
Here is how people react on social media upon this claim of the earth being static:
Just like he is blabbering nonsense about science, I wonder if he does exactly the same with religion ?? Ever so important to do your own research, do not blindly follow, be it religion or anything else in life !!— Salman S (@SalmanS6) May 31, 2020
This Jahil is destroying our young generation also but he is not alone there are dozens of his kind sitting in This channel— The Gr8 Pathan (@khans_79) May 31, 2020
About time our religious mentors are compulsorily put through an Everyday Science Test, before being allowed to teach our children. Our future generations are at risk of remaining ignorant unless this is seriously undertaken.@Shafqat_Mahmood @ImranKhanPTI— Khalil A. Hassan (@Khalil_a_hassan) May 31, 2020
