The Hypocrisy Of It All

Hantu Laut

I am all for racial harmony and religious tolerance and desirably it should not be politics that bridge the divide. Malaysians should have a greater sense of togetherness irrespective of race, colour and creed.Politics should not be a barrier to the proverbial melting-pot and politics should not be used as a vehicle to disguise political expediency as racial and religious tolerance.In Pakatan it is all for politicial expediency unless they believe in their own lies.


Quoting verses from the Quran by non-Muslims I think is not wrong if done sincerely nor is reading the Koran.Using it as political expediency may not be wrong but it shows the kind of hypocrisy those in Pakatan capable of just to gain political mileage.




When DAP leader Nga Kor Ming repeated reciting verses from the Quran in front of Tok Guru and many PAS leaders it was purely a fervid show, a wayang and a sandiwara of hypocrisy. In another word he was showing off.What's the point of citing verses from a Quran if you are not giving religious sermon. Is he trying to impress the Muslims and the Malays. Of course, those in UMNO who lodged police reports against him is as ignorant as he is.How well-versed is he with the Quran I have no idea but he certainly explained the meaning well and his Bahasa Melayu is excellent.

Below is another of Pakatan's great religious exercise.

In PAS they trust
Malaysia's Islamic political party is winning over non-Muslims who find it principled and sincere

KUALA LUMPUR - MR B. Balendran is just like any other devout Hindu who celebrates Deepavali and does not eat beef.

But in his free time, he attends political rallies by Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS) and helps to recruit new members for its Supporters' Club.Read more.............

HL,

If you are all for Racial Harmony & Religious Tolerance then you should not be supporting UMNO! Period!

HL,

By the way, how can you say "Malaysians should have a greater sense of togetherness irrespective of race, colour and creed" when everytime we fill in a form we have state whether we are Bumi or Non-Bumi?
The day this Racist, Bigoted & Corrupted UMNO (again, the other BN lapdogs are not relevant anymore!) Government abolishes this very basic "difference" is the day Malaysians irrespective of race, color and creed start to have a "greater sense of togetherness"! Period!

You say Pakatan and Nga is just using Islam and reciting Koranic verses for show when he doesnt understand Islam.

In other words, it is only the perogative of Muslims. I would like then to ask, 'How many of the Muslims are reciting Koran verses WITH TRUE UNDERSTANDING and not droning on and on for show only????

Nga read the ayat just to show a point, nothing wrong with that.
The hypocrisy is with UMNO. Do they own Allah and the koran. NO!

SM,
You are giving too much credence to Pakatan's promises.SM, believe me nothing will change even if Pakatan is the government.We will still be Malays,Chinese,Indians dan lain-lain.

HL,

I think you are missing the point. With te PR we MAY or MAY NOT have unity (we don't know if we don't try them out).
BUT, with UMNO, we KNOW we WILL definately not have unity.

I strongly disagree with the statement that religions other than Islam should be "tolerated".Does the writer imply that other religions are bad and that it should not be? Should Islam be similarly tolerated in countries where its muslim citizens are not in the majority?

We should "accept" religious diversity and not "tolerate" them, as if one would tolerate a child's tantrums because they do not know better.
