From The Desk Of Nazim e aala

The role of media in this age of science and technology has increased ijtjkconsiderably. To make ones presence felt and to know the happenings around the world, it is very important to keep in touch with the modern means of communication. Advancement in electronic gadgets has bolstered the process of information transfer. Television, computers, Internet broadband etc have become essential components of media today. Internet being one of the wonderful inventions of the modern world has become part and parcel of our social, cultural, political and educational life. It has gained immense importance in education, economics, travel and tourism or any other field of life. Internet provides quick and real time information. For people living in our part of the world, internet has made those things easily accessible which were beyond our imagination just few years back. It may not be an exaggeration if we say that present day globalization is the creation of internet. We can, therefore, safely conclude that internet and globalization are two facets of the same coin. As we all know, every thing has a good side and a bad one. Internet too is subject to the same rule. It has both positive and negative effects on our society. It is, however, the way we put inventions to use that defines their significance and role in the human society. Internet nowadays is used to promote sexual anarchy, waywardness, and other vices. This all is done in the name of entertainment and information encapsulated as infotainment.  If we go a little deeper, internet is used as a tool against Islam. Misunderstandings and misconceptions are being created through internet against Islam. It is because the bulk of internet today is utilized by those who are adverse to Islam. Today there are thousands of websites on the internet whose only aim is to tarnish the image of Islam. There is no count of harmful consequences of internet on the society.  However, we being a global Ummah need to be very cautious about the happenings around the world. We have to be vigilant and aware. Internet is today more powerful tool than weapons of mass destruction. We must utilize this modern facility for the betterment of whole humanity in general and Muslim Ummah in particular.  Internet can be a best tool for Dawah work too, hence must be used for the purpose. Muslims do use internet but the percentage is very low. And even among those who use it, majority uses only for personal purposes. Muslims contribute only 20% to the Netscape as against those who are hell bent upon maligning the image of Islam. It is because of this reason that our adversaries are successfully executing their projects against Muslims as they find the field unchallenged. Islami Jamia-e-Talaba J&K has always tried its best to employ all the positive, constructive and transparent means for the propagation of Islam. The website of IJT is a step towards using modern means of communication for the purpose.  Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba Jammu and Kashmir welcomes all users on its newly launched website. We are eagerly waiting for the suggestions and feedback from the members in particular and all youth in general. Your valuable suggestions will help improve the website for better results.  I would like to say that we fully realize that this important work should have been done much earlier, but given the availability of resources with Jamiat it, understandably, could not be. Finally, we are grateful to the Allah, the Almighty, who bestowed us with the privilege to execute this noble work. We pray that may Allah (SWT) accept our humble efforts and grant us mercy in this world and in the hereafter.
