In Response To: Sultan e Pakistan coming. (Sidqi, ca)

People generally like comedy and like to laugh. Laughter is also said to be a best medicine. But as its theory says, laughing at someone expresses one’s superiority over the person that is laughed at. In its effect it demeans them with our laugh in the eyes of the person being laughed at. Thus humor in Bible is linked to hostility towards other inviting God’s wrath.

Unless it is a deliberate comedy that purposely amuses people. Because laughing at the comedian or circus jokers we are not comparing or expressing our superiority over them, but we take a neutral position. Therefore, Sidqi Bhai should not be judged on this count and let him go, because the ‘Sultan-e-Pakistan Coming’ could itself be stand-up comedy.
