Books are as useful to an illiterate person as a mirror is to a blind.The book is known to be a good friend as we learn many good things from them but it is so for the people who are literate as they only can read that book. What purpose will it serve if it is given to an illiterate person?
What happens when a mirror is given to a blind (visually impaired), he can't see himself in a mirror. Similarly, a book is of no use for an illiterate person or for one who reads it but can't understand what it implies.
I am referring to the people who read religious books and give speeches about it but their deeds are like criminals. Consider several babas who have bluffed innocent people by giving their religious discourses in the day and engage in criminal activities at night. Media has highlighted many such babas but still, we believe them and go to them seeking their advice and blessings.
Don't you think it's a mistake on our part?
