Essay - Use And Abuse of Television


 The television has become very popular now-a-days due to its three characteristic. Firstly it presents the motion pictures of the persons televised as well as their utterances. Secondly, the viewers feels to be a part of the program himself. Thirdly the programs influence the viewers. In every country, therefore people prefer, to watch the television, to over other pastimes.

 Another use of the television is to educate people. In the most advance countries they use it to educate, to teach, to instruct, and to impact scientific, technical and other knowledge. Another use of television is to convey the information to the public. News service show them what is happening at other places. Weather forcasts, warning of approaching storms and comments on international problems are presented by it. This informative aspect of the televisions goes far to make public aware of national and international problems.
Unfortunately the television is prone to be abuse also. The first and the most important abuse of the television dramas and picture show scenes of violence, shooting and killings. This affects the immature minds. New methods to kill, cheat and to blow up are taught by these pictures and dramas which the innocent boys learn to practice.

 Some television programs show western culture comprising of almost naked girls and boys indulging in dirty actions. Indulgence in free sex, and immoral actions in public is not something bad in western societies. Such actions are part of there culture. Islam discards such activities and prohibits immoral and dirty acts in order to save us from social problems and disease like AIDS.

 Another important thing that foreign programs are doing is that they are leading our young generation astray. They are damaging our national culture, national traditions and religious outlook. I was surprised to hear in a marriage ceremony the remarks of a very small girl who asked her mother how they had completed the marriage ceremony without the bride and bridegroom going round the fire. Perhaps her parents watched Indian films and drama serials . Is not this a pity?
