  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    You Cannot Beat But You Can Bomb If the religious scholars force any authority or moral rules, we reject as non-matching with the modern system of our lives. When the question of the beating to man or woman or children is, we see that as it is unjust and ridiculous. Mostly such things do not happen even as the rules. If we focus on our modern system and justice, a few idiots decide to bomb and drone on innocent men, women, and children, we keep and close our eyes and ears, but we object to a slight beat, what the ignorant and the senseless matter is that. Religious scholars are the fool ones, and superpowers are the wise ones. You cannot even slightly beat on wrongs, but they can bomb on innocents.
