COMSATS Professor Promotes Incest in English Quiz
Termed ‘The Julie and Mark Scenario’ the quiz read:
Julie and Mark are brother and sister. They are travelling together to France on summer vacation from college. One night they are staying alone in a cabin near the beach. They decide that it would be interesting and fun if they tried making love. At the very least, it would be a new experience for each of them. Julie was already taking birth control pills, and Mark uses a condom too, just to be safe. They both enjoy making love, but they decide never to do it again. They keep that night as a special secret which makes them feel even closer to each other.
What do you think about that? Was it ok for them to make love?

Incest, the practice of sexual relationships between close family members, is widely considered taboo in most societies around the world. It is also prohibited in many religions, including Islam, which strictly forbids the practice of incest. In this article, we will explore the Islamic perspective on incest and how it is considered haram, or forbidden, in Islam, as well as how it is similarly regarded in other religions.
In Islam, incest is considered a grave sin and is forbidden in the Quran. Incest is considered a major violation of Islamic principles and morals, and those who engage in such acts are considered to be committing a serious crime.
The prohibition of incest in Islam is based on several principles, including the preservation of family harmony and the protection of children’s welfare. Engaging in incestuous relationships can lead to serious physical and psychological harm, including birth defects and emotional trauma, which can have lasting consequences for the individuals involved and their families.
Islam is not the only religion that considers incest a forbidden practice. In Christianity, the Bible explicitly prohibits incestuous relationships, and such practices are regarded as sinful and an abomination before God. In the Old Testament, God forbade sexual relationships between close relatives, and anyone who violated this commandment was punished severely.
In Hinduism, incestuous relationships are also considered forbidden and are regarded as a violation of social norms and moral values. Such practices are viewed as a significant threat to the social order and are therefore strictly prohibited.
Incest is also prohibited in other religions, such as Judaism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. In Judaism, incestuous relationships are viewed as a serious offence against God and are forbidden in the Torah. In Buddhism, incest is considered immoral and is viewed as a violation of the principles of non-violence and compassion. Similarly, in Sikhism, incest is considered a grave sin and is strictly prohibited.
