NGO's Protesting Fatawa Agents of UMNO?

I have seen the pattern reappearing again. Back then when PAS introduced Islamic Penal Code (aka Al Jinayah) in Terengganu in 2002, the usual suspect of Anti Islam NGO's protested and was given ample coverage by the news media.

On the issue of "pengkid" and "yoga" you see the same usual suspect that decides to take to the street and protest. It is understandable considering these "usual suspects" are from the liberal secular ideology and therefore they have no respect for any religion.

They basically despise any form of enforcement related to religion. Plus, the issue of pengkik hit them in the head considering they are at the forefront of fighting for "homosexual" rights.

My point is simple: they are protesting against various religious issues for nothing more than to express their contempt against religion and expressing their true ideology and that is anti religion.

But, the recent protest against National Fatwa Council decision is unprecedented. In their protest against the "pengkik" fatwa, they actually organized street protest carrying banners and calling out names against the NFC. Of course, the usual chant is that the NFC is anti women.

Funny, one of the issue they raised against the fatwa is the relation between morality and women's body. Maybe they also need to ask why those in the advertising industry almost always uses women's body to sell their products. why scantily clad but thin women are almost always used as models to show off fashion designs. When was the last time you saw a fat, overweight fashion model?

So, women's body is a commodity and it is related to morality. Otherwise, it wouldn't have been exploited by those in the advertising industry.

The Acts Looks More Like Provocation to Drive a Wedge Between Races and Benefit BN

Just like with PAS Terengganu in 2002, the actions of these NGO's have always benefited the Barisan Nasional. In 2004, we saw how Non Muslims almost completely rejected PAS and Barisan Alternatif despite the fact that the Terengganu Syariah Enacment clearly spelled out that non muslims are not subject to the law.

In our present day context, the actions of these NGO's, due to it's unprecendented nature, will give valuable ammunition to UMNO psy war machinery to enable them to convince Malays that Islam is under siege.

And the main cause for such development is the routing of UMNO is several states and the lost of 2/3 majority of BN and UMNO in Parliament. Malays being gullible to racial and religous sentiment messages will swallow these punts very easily.

I can almost see these points being used in the upcoming Kuala Terengganu by-elections. They will play the footage of NGO demonstrating against NFC over and over again just like they did with the Saiful Bukhari swearing ceremony. The kampung folks will just take this at face value and believe that the defeat of UMNO will spell disaster for Islam

These NGO Doesn't Have the Faintest Idea of What Islam Stands For

Anti Islam NGO's like Sisters in Islam, WAO and many more have demonstrated their ignorance of Islamic jurisprudence again and again. The biggest example is the about turn that SIS did during the Islamic Family Law 2005 issue.

My sources told me that SIS representatives have been severely embarrassed during their debates with representatives of the AG Chambers. In fact, the SIS lacks all expertise in matters related to the Malaysian legal system. And no where did it show so glaringly than during the several sessions they had in the AG Chambers.

In fact, among the Muslim-Malay communities, SIS is very much a pariah and viewed in the same light as the Ayah Pin movement.

But if you noticed English papers like The Star gives extensive coverage to freaky NGO like SIS while totally neglecting mainstream islamic NGOs in Malaysia which I might add outnumber freaky liberal NGO like SIS 100 to one.

It's all a concerted effort to drive a wedge within the opposition ranks and to strengthen the Malay support for UMNO.

And these freaky NGOs are helping the UMNO cause. Period.

I would like to say that the 'Pelan Tindakan Isu Perkauman' has been executed.

In my opinion these agents' intentions are as follows:

1- They want to give the impression that Islam is under greater threat after the political tsunami and Muslims will hate the Pakatan Rakyat as a whole

2- They want to mislead non-Muslims that going against Islam is going against UMNO and it is the right thing to do. You can read the posted comments at Anak Perelih's blog on this matter.

3- They want PAS to work together with UMNO and subsequently PAS can be tainted with UMNO's corrupt practices and subsequently become more unpopular than UMNO.

I would like to suggest that PAS should start designating MCA as an anti-Islam party using their opposition on merging of Syariah and Common Law as one of the issues. Even Wong Chun Wai fires some salvos towards PAS, so why can't PAS retaliates accurately by attacking the MCA infidels?

While attacking Star, what about Utusan?

I am one of the Free People, also known as non-muslims, and thus, having to respect Islam, would not offer any opinion or comment on fatwas that are issued.

However, the Free People are indirectly affected by the fatwas. We need to know what roles we shall play. For example, can the Free People sell alcohol to muslims? Now that Yoga may be banned, those Free People who operates Yoga centres, can they admit muslims? Will they be penalised if they do? Under which section of the law will this be covered?

This is my concern. Not commenting of the fatwa but need to know what our roles are as Free People.

For one example, in May 2007 Dr. Izzat Atiyya, lecturer at Cairo's Al-Azhar University, issued a fatwa that suggested that male and female colleagues could use breastfeeding to get around a religious ban on being alone together. The fatwa said that if a woman fed a male colleague "directly from her breast" at least five times they would establish a family bond and thus be allowed to be alone together at work. "Breast feeding an adult puts an end to the problem of the private meeting, and does not ban marriage," he ruled. "A woman at work can take off the veil or reveal her hair in front of someone whom she breastfed." (Source: wikipedia)

If this fatwa is introduced in Malaysia, do the Free People also need to suck the breasts of their muslim women colleagues in order to avoid the women muslim colleagues from being charged under khalwat?

Do we approach the women or do the women have to approach us? Do we suck or licking is adequate? How long do we have to suck? We would like to respect the muslims' fatwa and cooperate as far as we can. Like I said, I offer no comment or opinion. I just would like to play a part in cooperating.

If I am not wrong, I believe this fatwa has been revoked. Nonetheless, it comes from a very high and respectable authority within the University Al-Azhar's hadith department. Alas, another fatwa being shot down by politicians playing populist games.

REPLY:Funny JB forgot to mention that the lecturer has retracted the fatwa

Or did he do that on purpose?

John Bastille said...

Hey Tulang Besi,

You got read until finish or not? I did mentioned that the fatwa was revoked.

That's what happened when NGO's and politicians tried to interfere with the issuance of fatwa. The lecturer did not retract because he realized that it was wrong, since he was suspended.

Instead of of trying to find one mistake and then zoom in to denigrade, why don't you try to deliberate on more significant issues?

Saya berasa begitu marah setelah membaca blog Dr. Punithan Shan yang mencemar kesucian agama Islam dan Rasulallah s.a.w.. Saya berharap tindakan undang-undang diambil terhadap penulis blog MIC yang biadap ini. Sila baca lebih lanjut mengenai perkara ini di http://salimrawahy.blogspot.com
