What Zakir Naik says about piracy

open-source-logoLong time ago I have written an Urdu article on software piracy. A number of my visitors have commented on that article. The discussion goes from Software piracy to Book piracy and to availability of Open Source free software. Also we discussed the poor condition of students and high prices of the books. Finally Open Source software was considered the best solution for this issue. During more debate on Pak.Net forums I have found a video shared by one of the members. Zakir Naik speaking on piracy issue. After watching the video my guilt has gone on using pirated Windows and office.

The companies like Microsoft and Adobe themselves allowing piracy to make software more and more populer. Also they want people to addicted to their software and not to use their compatitor’s product. In this case when Software manufecturer has different intention in mind e.g (Marketing) there is no harm in using such software which are pirated. Generally piracy is considered totally Haram/unlawful. Check out the video.
