That's Not Good For Malaysia

For the sake of Malaysians, it is better not to pursue something that is deemed fanatical like this.

Fanatics would do such a thing there. It seems that we all had forgotten what Malaysia stands for. In the beginning, Malaysia is a secular state, as some of the documents in the past testified as it is meant for all races to stay, not just one.

Excerpt from Malaysiakini (click here to read the full story):
In view of the upcoming general election, Malaysia's Islamic NGOs exercise their democratic right by calling upon political parties, election candidates and the future state and federal government to address issues concerning the interests of Islam, Muslim society and the nation. The calls for a responsive government which is receptive to the aspiration of the people and the Muslim majority contained in a document called "Malaysia's 12th General Election: Islamic NGOs Election Demands". The document is a product of a consensus reached through a series of consultation among Malaysia's main Islamic NGOs including Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM), Jamaah Islah Malaysia (JIM), Malaysian Chinese Muslim Association (MACMA), Syari'e Lawyers Association of Malaysia (PGSM), Allied Coordinating Council of Islamic NGOs (ACCIN), Wadah Pencerdasan Umat (WADAH), Muafakat Masyarakat Malaysia (MUAFAKAT) and Muslim Lawyers Association (MLA), Persatuan Ulama' Malaysia (PUM), Teras Pengupayaan Umat (TERAS). (See the full list below).

The document comprises a host of demands which fall under six main items, namely the special constitutional position of Islam; Islamic education and da'wah (call to Islam); good governance; democracy and civil society; inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations; and Islamic faith and morals. Following are the summary of the demands:
This would be a bad case, an attempt to dismantle what most people are benefiting from being a Malaysian. It would create an identity crisis and worst of all it means religion subversion. It has been too much for most of us recently when Christians faced the problem of the Allah wording that was banned by an semi-literate minister. Musa Aman and the Mufti of Sabah is also in the spotlight and criticism of the Chinese committee for issuing a decree banning all Buddha and Kuan Yin statues in the state.

What more do these so-called holy and people with alms want from? Does such suggestions above means forcing everybody or subverting them to accept the Muslim way against their will?

From what I remembered sometime ago, these NGOs are responsible for all the ruckus while people were eager to see Gwen Stefani and Beyonce performing here. I also remembered that an adviser to this NGOs is somehow Reezal Merican. Correct me if I am wrong on the fact above, such words means more danger than PAS does after it admits that their numbers are impossible to make every part of Malaysia Islamized.

A First Sign of Bad Things to Come

On Sunday, I was in Kampung Baru driving to heart of the city, when I noticed a signboard, similar to the one mentioned by Seputeh MP Teresa Kok. According to sources, it was said that it was written as part of getting Middle-East tourists visiting Malaysia to understand the ground better. The problem is, Arabic is not the number one language used in the world, but it is English and number two is Chinese Mandarin. It seems that some idiots think of otherwise.

People, always remember that Malaysia is a secular state. Don't let such a radical ideology dismantling everything foundation laid to waste with one act like that!
