A recent post on Green Sufi‘s blog drew my attention to the need to say a few words about television. In fact it reminded me of a book by Gerry Mander which everyone should read about the harmful effects of TV. This book which I read due to a recommendation by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf was a real eye-opener for me and many friends. Mander and Neil Postman are well worth reading on the harmful effects of TV and technology in general. Unfortunately in the Muslin world there is as yet little awareness and interest in these issues. For a review of Mander’s book go here or to take a look at it go here. For a list of books by Postman take a look at this.
