Islamic ideology of communication, journalism and its principles: A research overview
اسلام کا نظریہ ابلاغ و صحافت اور اصول: ایک تحقیقی جائزہ
Considering the journalism and communication in the human history, it will be clear to us that the founders and inventors of communication and journalism were the Prophets (peace be upon them) by the command of Allah, the Lord of Glory. Prophets were sent by Almighty to the people as preachers. They taught entire humanity complete way of life, morality, etiquettes and much more. With the passage of time, the methods of communication and journalism have also been evolved. Islam is a complete code of life. Therefore, it also has rules and regulations regarding communication and journalism. Now a day, unfortunately it has been witnessed that a lot of political communication and journalism is based on false news and deception. The worldwide propaganda against Islam in television programs is no secret these days. This approach of media is creating moral, societal, psychological and family problems and creating chaos among the people. Although, there are positive effects of media as well. Therefore, it is the need of time to establish a strong proIslamic media with Islamic journalistic principles. It would be helpful to present a true picture of Islam and concept of peace and will respond to all false allegations about Muslims and Islam. It will prevent the religious ideology of the country, spread true teachings of prophets and truth to the people in the best possible way.
