Recently when I was browsing the internet, I came across “Last Drinks” a YouTube video report presented by Tom Steinfort, a famous Australian journalist. The program was produced by 60 Minutes Australia. The subject matter of the program was none other than the age-old issue of alcohol. As a person living in a multi-religious and multi-cultural society, for a very long time, I have heard the debate on alcohol coming from different perspectives. Most communities other than the Muslims approve the use of alcohol for parties and festivities as there is no strict ruling on the consumption of it in their religions. Conversely, for Muslims, it is a big ‘No, No’ as the Qur’an categorically prohibits the act of imbibing alcohol. Though it was only a seventeen-minute report, the content was a candid one, discussing precisely and concisely the health hazards of gulping alcoholic drinks.
