Superstitious mind is primitive, and religion based on it is religion of fear. Unlike, Islam is a religion of morality, calls for awakened enlightened mind. It drives away all kinds of superstition, ignorance, delusions of mind to help people level-headed. At the higher life of consciousness, the religion of morality takes over superstition for critical understanding prevail. On the other hand, when the mediums of superstition, like recourse to goats, peer, fakir, Mazars etc. predominate life the result is bound to be dismal.
It is not to say that Pakistan is not making progress despite its people somewhat superstitious. When PIA inducted Boeing 777s in its fleet, seven goats were given in ‘dum’ near the plane on tarmac to invite good omen. Not knowing how and where the good omen can come from and what its supply chain. If the country is making progress in IT, CPEC or defense industry, rest assured that its process is outside the realm of superstition. Though its leaders, Zardari, Nawaz or Imran may be delusional, but it may be their personal foolishness.
