This is the man whose party will be part of the new government if Anwar Ibrahim takes over in September.
This is what he said yesterday:
Sumpah Mohd. Saiful bercanggah dengan Islam - Nik Aziz
Katanya, apa yang dilakukan Mohd. Saiful itu sama dengan penganut Kristian menggunakan Bible.Menurut beliau, Islam hanya menerima sumpah Wallahi, Wabillahi dan Watallahi. -(Utusan)
And this is what he said last month:
Nik Aziz: Bersumpah junjung al-Quran tentukan kebenaran
04-07-2008 10:04:01 PM
KOTA BHARU: Menteri Besar Kelantan Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat berkata "mubahalah" atau bersumpah dengan menjunjung al-Quran adalah cara untuk menentukan kebenaran dan juga sesuatu yang dituntut dalam Islam.
Sambil menyokong cadangan Mufti Perlis, Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin berhubung perkara itu, beliau berkata melalui cara demikian, Allah SWT boleh melaknatkan manamana pihak yang bersalah.
"Dalam Quran sudah menyebut, setelah sudah tiada ikhtiar lagi dalam menyelesaikan kemelut yang memalukan itu, siapa yang tidak bersalah Tuhan tolong," katanya kepada pemberita ketika ditemui di sini, hari ini.
Beliau yang juga Mursyidul Am PAS berkata demikian sebagai mengulas cadangan Mohd Asri supaya keduadua individu yang dikaitkan dengan kes liwat iaitu Penasihat Parti Keadilan Rakyat Malaysia (PKR) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan bekas pembantunya, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan "bermubahalah" atau bersumpah.Dalam kenyataannya semalam, Mohd Asri berkata isu liwat yang membabitkan Anwar sudah semakin rumit dan rakyat pula menjadi keliru.(Bernama)
This is what Ronald Reagan said about politics "Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
Tell me how can the man, a tok guru, can be so confused about his own religion?
Is PAS truly an Islamic party?
Hoi! Tok Guru! Betoi kah ini cerita agama?
We Muslims are sensitive lot.Here's something that should upset members of PAS and not upset the non-Muslim community, courtesy of MYKMU.NET:
Charles De Gaulle once said "Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word."
Who should we believe in now?
Here is another one that even my 4-year old precocious grandaugher would know sounds stupid,making a storm in a teacup:
UiTM plans legal action against MB
SHAH ALAM: Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Vice Chancellor Datuk Seri Prof Ibrahim Abu Shah said the university will take legal action against Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim for refusing to apologise for proposing that it admit 10 per cent non-Bumiputera students. He said Khalid should apologise for making the statement on UiTM as it was not only unethical and degrading to the university but also not true at all.
"We are not hard-headed on this issue but the statement is 100 per cent wrong. We can accept criticisms if what was said was true," he told a media conference after opening an alumni homecoming programme at UiTM, here, Saturday.
Khalid had proposed that UiTM admit 10 per cent non-Bumiputera students and claimed that its students were unfriendly, of poor quality and non-competitive. His statement angered UiTM students nationwide who held demonstrations to protest the proposal.
The Menteri Besar had refused to apologise to UiTM claiming he was not questioning the special rights of Bumiputeras and the establishment of UiTM. Ibrahim said UiTM did not want to make enemies of the other races which was proven when the Chinese and Indians were recruited as the teaching staff.
"His statement (Khalid) had instigated non-Bumiputeras to hate the Malays and vice versa. It can also create hatred among the Malays," he said. - Bernama
Even though some of us might not agree with it, is there a law against making constructive criticism and suggestion?
Go back to school, mate! With this kind of mentality I don't blame Khalid Ibrahim for making the suggestion.It's not the students to be blamed, it's more a case of "bad teachers, bad students".
The mediocre education in this country is not the fault the students,it's the fault of the education system and that of the teaching profession.
Khalid Ibrahim, you don't have to apologise, it's not a crime to make suggestions.
Here's more on Anwar's sodomy charge:
Anwar has repeatedly refused to take up the challenge to do the same.
He told reporters yesterday that he had been advised by religious experts that this is not an Islamic practice.
“You are making a mockery of Islam,” he said.
Anwar insisted that the authorities, which have charged him with sodomy, have no proof.
“I have seen the first (medical) report and I am privy to the second report, and based on that, they have no case against me,” he said.
Anwar also said he has finally received a copy of the police report made by his accuser, which he said was inaccurate.
At a late Saturday night rally in a small neighbourhood, he took great efforts to counter the allegation of sodomy, and recounted how he was stripped and his private parts measured during a medical examination.
The sodomy accusation, although believed by the majority of Malaysians to be a political conspiracy, had taken a new twist after Saiful swore on the Quran that he was sodomised.
Analysts believe that this might cast doubts in the minds of some rural Malay voters.
“For us Muslims, this is important. No one can lie swearing on the Quran,” said Sapiah Ali, a hawker and voter in the constituency. (Malaysian Insider)
I wonder who was the religious expert who advised him, if it was Nik Aziz than I am sorry for him.Nik Aziz had proven he is more a politician than an Islamic scholar.
Well, if Anwar decides to do the same for political expediency, than we should know who is the liar.
