This is one version of response to current efforts undertaken to restore a Constitutional Malaysia. (You can still sign the online petition) Here freedom of speech is given an ugly name, and is labelled as a Western concept. The fact that human rights is also attacked and played down in the following letter is telling of the larger opinion its writings reflect. I'm not one to stir up dissent but I'm rather amazed at what I read. Check it out below. More blogging to come… right now, signing off after a busy but rewarding weekend.
It very unfortunate for me to received comment that slanders me as ignorant and other wild accusation. Clearly show that the person him/herself ignorant about him/her religion and understanding.
Malaysia as Islamic Country
I do belief that Malaysia is an Islamic country not just from 1957 but dated from Malacca Sultanate. It is important we that accept this as it already manifested in the federal constitution that Islam as official religion of federation. Yet it’s not denying others to profess any religion and ensure protection of all.
To conclude 200% for sure that Malaysia is Islamic country. Why so hard for others to accept the basic and fundamental of our nation. Its not that you are deny professing whatever religion. Yet these people don’t want to accept that Islam is the official religion. This is the issue.
Lately there is a small group try to gain support, promoting and infuse secularism in Malaysia. They use whatever means to shake the bedrock of our country. I strongly oppose to turn Malaysia into secular country which against the value that we all carried. I do believed that Malaysian need to show 200% support to Islam Hadhari to clearly show that secularism don’t have place in this country.
The model of secularism such freedom to profess any religion, freedom of speech and human right already delivered by Malaysia. I see the secularism is carries by the people with hidden agenda. I do have a bad feeling about this that it will bring disaster to Malaysia. We cannot tolerate with secularism.
Emotional and out of context
I did attend a seminar organized by Article 11 and Bar Council which the outcome pretty shameful as small group of people cry that they have more right than others and try to interfere Islam matter by requesting the abolishment of Article 121 (1A). This is totally absurd and unjust to Malaysian Muslim. The amendment introduce because the Muslim had treated unjustly by court before the amendment took place. And now we heard that this small group wants to reintroduce this unjustly article under banner of justice. Totally absurd.
During the seminar several individual did quoted some cases that clearly being interpreted according to personal emotion and out of context. Just to backup their issue and to rise up sympathy. All in the name of freedom of speech and even seek protection under Article 11. I do wonder if they using this as a platform to gain support before they destroy the harmony of this nation.
Time to accept and realized.
I do hope for those who still clouded will realized and accept that Malaysia will never adopt secularism and Malaysia is Islamic nation as accepted before and after Merdeka. Don’t live in denial. For sake of this country lets focus on more important issue such as the merger of different school system that creates and nurture division among us. And I do believe we should move forwards for better Malaysia.
That’s all for now my friends. Please do share your view with clear mind and cold head.
