Mona Aeysha Khalid


This paper is designed to investigate the real mind-set behind in-human and unjustifiable beliefs that common people blindly own, accept, belong, respect and name them as traditions. Such beliefs basically are the product of poor economical and weak geographical structure of a society. People who cannot solve their practical problems through scientific research, analytical approaches, and implementation of research based laws; usually dig upon irrational and fatal traditions, beliefs and customs. Their beliefs are not subject to approval; however they consider them as a source of a relief, excuse, justification and means to their identity. In this paper, belief structure, along with historical and philosophical perspective will be addressed to draw a line between the evil and ethical customs of a society. In the end, measures to improve such hypocritical and susceptive belief systems (including traditions, customs, and values) have been discovered, introduced and proposed for future trends.
