The Herald editor talks about the Allah issue

A few things I like to note :

1) Fr Lawrence Andrew said Catholics not only pray silently, sing and worship but we carry out our faith as well. Therefore, we do involve and get interested in things related to the environment, society, human aspects and etc from the faith angle. So, it shouldn’t been seen as political.

2) The Herald did not USE the term Allah. They are only quoting in the Bahasa Melayu version parts of the scripture which is from the Bahasa Melayu Al-Kitab where the word Allah is referred for the Almighty God.

3) The Herald has a controlled circulation and there is no instance of it being ended up with Muslims. So, nobody can accuse The Herald of spreading it anywhere else.

4) Catholics are urged to remain calm. It is a small momentary setback. But we will learn a lot from this experience.

Like I had mentioned earlier, there is a silver lining to it.

  1. Hi, I have a story. It goes like this.

    Our brothers and sisters call our mother ‘mama’. In this ‘ taman ‘, mama is how we call her.

    So, eventually, it becomes our right and nobody else can call their mother mama. Whatever you call her, is none of my business. You just cannot call mama. Otherwise, we will be confuse and our mother will be confuse also. She wouldn’t know whether it is her children calling her or somebody’s else. We will be confuse also because there are so many mama around…..

    Ok, it is just a joke. Forgive my awful English.
