Satire is a reaction against imbalance and dissatisfactions. It offers an artistic way for objection and reform. Satire literature, like cartoon and comedy, behind its amusing cover, criticizes social inadequacies adopting less harsh methods. Humorous language of some mystical texts reflects their social and cultural circumstances. These works are literary media for objecting and criticizing false beliefs.
