Khairy Jamaluddin's Un-Islamic Al-Islam

Hantu Laut

They say ignorance is bliss.Is this a mixture of ignorance, stupidity and religious bigotry.I hope the police arrest those involved and deal with them severely.What they have done is dangerous and can cause religious upheaval for spreading falsehood.The government should take a serious view of this case and not be seen as taking it lightly and the magazine should be reprimanded or given a show cause.All right thinking Muslims should condemn this sort of behaviour.While we respect our own religion, we should also respect other religions.

These ignorant narrow-minded bigots either pretended not to know or are truly ignorant and stupid not to know that there are many East Malaysians who look Malays but of the Christian faith and some even have Muslim names but are Christians and sermons in churches in Sabah and Sarawak are usually conducted in Bahasa Melayu for those who can't speak English.

I will not write anymore on the subject as Khairy Jamaluddin has said enough in his article below.


Un-Islamic Al-Islam?
The actions of a journalist from Al-Islam magazine
of going undercover to two Catholic Churches
during Sunday mass, consuming and spitting
the Holy Communion wafer - what Catholics
believe to be the flesh of Christ himself - out of
his mouth before photographing it, can only be
described as appalling and offensive. As Leader
of Barisan Nasional and UMNO Youth and as a
Muslim, I have no reservations whatsoever in
condemning this instance of unethical j
ournalism, grounded in both disrespect and
ignorance.

Needless to say, these actions are contrary to the goal
of an empathetic society that I have been promoting
as a way for Malaysians to progress as a people
from diverse backgrounds. Empathy requires
sound appreciation of one another's unique
cultures and sensitivities - it calls for us to
consider the perspectives of others before acting
in ways that may affect them.

It also violates the Islamic injuction for empathy,
plurality and respect, something made clear in
the Holy Quran Surah Al-Hujarat, verse 13:
"O Mankind! We created you from a single pair
of a male and a female, and made you into
nations and tribes so that you may know one
another".

The Islamic virtues of empathy, respect and
tolerance were obviously absent in both the
journalist and the magazine's editorial
team that sanctioned the publishing of the article
and the methods employed to gather information
over supposed cases of Muslims
converting to Catholicism/Christianity.

Everyone involved in the researching,
writing and publishing this article should have
considered the fact that Muslims already find it
offensive when non-Muslims do not
observe basic courtesies expected when in a
mosque, like taking off shoes and covering
heads. They should further imagine their own
reactions if someone went undercover in
their local mosques, pretend to worship as a
Muslim and made a mockery of congregation
prayer. I suspect Al-Islam failed to consider
the fact that the gravity of their own actions
were similar to this hypothetical situation
where the sanctity of the Muslim place and act
of worship are violated. And this is at the
heart of the problems we face as a
multi-cultural and multi-religious society - people
simply do not stop to think about another
community's legitimate interests and
sensitivities by positioning themselves from
another's perspective before acting. Read more...

Here's a joke of being ignorant or being stupid.

RELIGIOUS BOYFRIEND
A young man goes into a pharmacy and says to the pharmacist,

"Hello,
could you give me condom. I'm going to my girlfriends

for dinner and I
think I may be in with a chance!"

The pharmacist gives him the condom and as the young man is going out;
he returns and says, "Give me another condom because my girlfriend's
sister is very cute too. She always crosses her legs in a provocative
manner when she sees me and I think I might strike it lucky there too.
" The pharmacist gives him a second condom and as the boy is leaving he
turns back and says, "Go on, give me one more condom because my
girlfriend's mum is still pretty cute and when she sees me she always
makes eyes, and since she invited me for dinner, I think she is
expecting me to make a move!


During dinner, the young man is sitting with his girlfriend on his left,
the sister on his right and the mum facing him.
When the dad gets there, the boy lowers his head and starts praying,
"Dear Lord, bless this dinner and Thank you for all you give us."
A minute later the boy is still praying; "Thank you Lord for your
kindness."


Ten minutes go by and the boy is still praying, keeping his head down.
The others look at each other surprised and his girlfriend is even more
surprised than the others.

She gets close to the boy and says in his ear, "I didn't know you were
so religious." The boy replies, ......

The UnIslamic Al-Islam wannabee journalist sudah putus wayar dia agaknya. He must be mad as there really cannot be any rational reason why he did what he did. Well put Khairy.

Maybe just sent him for mental observation, if he is not mad then sent him to Kamunting Detention camp for a long debrief on how to behave in a multireligious and multiracial country like Malaysia.

Well said.Ini orang gila.Ya,Kamunting yang baik untuk mereka.

As a Muslim what point is he trying to prove by taking the Holy Communian?

You see, non-Muslims do not threaten to kill and murder Muslims even when their place of worship is raped by Muslims. Then you have the police and MACC which are 99% Malays/Muslims having non-Muslims dying mysteriously in their custody. Do you see riots and suicide bombings by non-Muslims to avenge the rape of their religion and killings of their people? No, we follow the law even if UMNO refuses to. Yet UMNO cares so much about the killings of the miserable Palestinians/Muslims by the Israelis.

To the MACC, thank you for reminding non-Malays/Muslims over the true nature of the UMNO government. We will all remember the Kugans and Teoh Beng Hocks in all subsequent by-elections and the coming GE.

UMNO Boleh!

Apparently Vinnan do not know of the ongoing killings between Thai Muslims and Buddhists in South Thailand where recently a group of Muslims were massacred while performing Isyak prayers in their village mosque by black clad unknown assassins armed with assault rifles and grenades.

Vinnan you really have to stop looking at things through your very narrow and bigoted mind, were you abused by a Malay when you were young, I wonder. Get help dude, I think you seriously need help.
