    Religion views the body and sexual pleasure as a basic human need and it has set some para meters for this pleasure as it has rules and regulations for every aspect of life. The basic purpose of religion is to guide the humans for leading a life in accordance with the teachings of their Creator, Who, no doubt, sent guidance with the humans to this world. Thus the path for sexual pleasure and satisfaction is marital life, that not only fulfills this basic human need but is also a way to maintain a healthy society.

    The mentioned statement is not a challenge to religion rather it is against the norms of humanity because man cannot use his bodily wishes like animals. He has to abide by some red lines in fulfilling his bodily desires. There is no concept of absolute freedom according to religion and reason. It would be illogical and impracticable to say that my body is mine and am free to do whatever I like to do, thus suicide is a crime in every legal system. To allow fulfilling sexual desires in the manner in which one would like to do it would be to allow moral suicide.


Dr. Rahmani, i can not fault your points, but, and even within any one faith, people vary, not all are one and can behave as one. Having said that, how come religions do not have margins of tolerance, instead, based on being absolute, while the subjects are not; regardless of related topic?.
