Islamisation

kuning

Proses Pengislaman di Malaysia – Apakah ini cuma satu desas-desus atau ini adalah satu fakta yang kita harus sedar? Apakah kita patut terus hidup dalam serba ‘gua taktau’?

Folks, this is not meant as any instigation but the facts are out there in our media. The proposal to introduce Syariah Law to us who are not Muslims was published by the local papers the other day. More and more pressures are placed upon us who are non-Muslims. I am a Christian but MyKad said I am without religion. It is felt in our schools and unversities. Islam is a beautiful religion, promoting love, forgiveness and all that related to God. But when politics creep into it and laws are changed, then, it is time we come to this realisation.

Ahmad Fairuz, the chief justice, told an Islamic conference in Kuala Lumpur that 50 years of independence had failed to free Malaysia from the “clutches of colonialism”. Sharia law should be “infused” into the gaps created by abolishing common law, he said.

Malaysia’s non-Muslim Chinese and Indian communities, who form 40 per cent of the population, are alarmed at creeping Islamisation.

Abdul Badawi, the prime minister, this month joined other leaders for the first time in denying what the British-authored constitution has said for 50 years – that Malaysia is a secular state.

Sharia law already operates in some Malaysian states and is occasionally applied to non-Muslims, as in July when Islamic officials forcibly separated a Hindu-Muslim couple with six children after 21 years of marriage.

I have heard with my own ears many of these preachings about ‘the evils of colonialism’ from a certain place of worship and I do feel worried about it because it was told like there is no future in the country unless all, and I mean ALL, are in one faith.

What can we do about it? Vote. And pray. And keep peace.

And yeah, like my pic? I got a hair cut and was wearing my geeky spectacles so have to hide the face a bit. But I do feel like ‘Yo, yo, yo….’ in that oversized, yellow sweater.

  1. infused the gaps…. so they are saying there is a gap eh?

  2. Islamic law is not for free people. It never will be!!!

  3. I am not sure if Malaysia will be the 50 yr old Malaysia we hav always known if common law is stripped. The country would not hav earn its international status if a big chunk of what Malaysia is make up of got stripped off. If sharia law has to be applied to non muslim, then there will be NO NON MUSLIM.

  4. It’s a bit worrisome.

    But at the same time I’m thinking I’ll just have to live with it, if it does become reality.

    If it proves to be at my disadvantage, living in a country under syariah law while living a non-muslim, then perhaps I’ll consider being a biiiit more pious and observing a certain religion it’s based on.

    Maybe.

    Either that or. Malaysia just might not be the home I remembered it to be. Finding greener pastures elsewhere? I hope it doesn’t come to that.

  5. Yo! I didn’t know that that was you! 😀

    Anyway, we just had our first time ever Methodist Combined Service yesterday (for all Methodist churches in Malaysia) in Stadium Malawati yesterday with about 12,000 worshippers attending. Beautiful. Our Bishop spoke about Genesis 12:1-7. Profound message to all of us, Abraham’s spiritual descendents. If you wanna know more, we gmail on this.

  6. wah lau eh? are you serious? i think its a little unfair, i thought the national anthem or what is rukun negara said something about rakyat hidup bersatu dan maju…what happen to equality leh?

  7. That is you kah? I thought u ambil someone gambar. Back to your story ……………… I begin to feel worry too. It’s not fair lor

  8. i’ll prob migrate if it ever comes to this…syariah law…i hope it doesnt come to that.

  9. IMHO, this is a lose-lose situation.
    Law are similar to electronic, it will be obsoleted, outdated over time. We no longer use cartridges for music because the scientist and people find the new MP3 player are much superior. And same to automobile. Today car mileage are much superior than Henry Ford generations.

    And because of fundies want to monopoly their rights of interpretation and definitions, it is dangerous NOT separate law from religion. There is too much power in law to corrupt people!

    EU establish NOT because they are “one big Christian family”, but because they worship universal value such as freedom and democracy, which are NOT susceptible to bias interpretation by fundies.

    IMHO, dragging the law with religion only mean one thing : a group people trying to pretend as God, so they can abuse the rules and law.

  10. Seriously, is there anything we, the ordinary Joes and Janes can do about such thing? I think not. When the time comes, it will be enforced upon us and what? Unless we, the non muslim are willing to lose it all and fight and get bloody. Which to me, is again a shame.. a great shame to human kind!

    Perhaps this is one time that we must have faith in GOD to do what we all cannot do. Just like Lilian’s son, who shown tremendous faith when he went to check out if the statue is back and kneel to pray. Perhaps we all must have such faith. I rather this than to fight and get bloody……

  11. its just too unfortunate that the politician are using the religion as tool. nalu aku. mana nak sorok muka ni?!
