One organization was thinking that it would be able to steamroll us, by taking a legal action against us. They served us a summon, which we feel is unfounded and fraudelent. I gathered my legal team.
Look here guys, our business is based on justice and fairplay. We will honour whatever promise or committment we have made. We are an honorable organization, but the moment someone tries to steamroll us, my order is “get those bazookas out guys!!!”
They did!! and they did exceedingly well. Not only the bazookas, they brought out the seawolfs, the penguins, the exocets.
I often reminded my guys that in business it is righteous not to shortchange. It is not righteous to cheat, to underspecify, to deliver beyond the promised dates. In business we have to be fair and just.
We subscribe and practice hudud, the limit, the principle of an eye for an eye. I always use the phrase ‘If you whack me I will whack you back”. This applies to indescipline, unkept promises, breach of trusts, or any business malpractices. It is not just about the cutting of limbs. There are ample laws of the land to take care of misdeeds.
Cutting of the limbs are the maximum punishment allowable by God for appropriate crime. There are also the limits of GOD in marriage and divorce, in inheritance. Suffice to say hududullah is not just about limits to criminal punishments, which unfortunately many religionists and pro- syariah make it out to be.
Back to this issue of hudud in criminal offences, if I were in a Saudi Arabia, if somene steals Rial100 from the company’s kitty, I would not push for the judge to punish him by cutting his left arm. I would however support a court who would punish those swindlers of the Pilgrimage Saving Fund by chopping of the arm. The same applies to those who swindle the government, billions for projects that they know they will not deliver. No, just the arm, not beyond.
However if the law of the land says the maximum punishment is imprisonment for 2o years with lashings, so be it.
Ready to do battle guys??
