Ustaz LGE likes 'hudud'
I am not calling him stupid for such a remark but he should have known that what the BN government is doing now is also 'Islamic' in many ways.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had said that the present cause of the Federal Government is based on the requirements of Islam under the concept of 'Maqasid Al-Shariah'.
Among the policies of the Maqasid Al-Shariah practiced by the government was to preserve and empower Islam but at the same time, it also protected and respected the human rights of both the Muslims and non-Muslims.
In respecting the human rights of the Malaysian people, he said the government had abolished the Internal Security Act (ISA).
Barisan Nasional is certainly not isolating or ignoring Islam but its cause is the struggle that is required by Islam. Islam is moderate and Muslims must be moderate. Any forms of fanaticism and extremism are deplorable.
And Islam does not separate the mosques from churches. That's why the government had acted to quash out Al-Maunnah from Sauk and Ibrahim Libya in Memali, Baling. In many other cases, deviated cults were also banned, including Al-Arqam, if Guan Eng can recall.
I hope the Penang Chief Minister understands what is hudud in the true context before politicising it, hoping to get some mileage from PAS and to see the government takes a rupture.
MCA, Gerakan and MIC had long understood the moderate Islamic administration within Barisan Nasional and such an approach had augured well in keeping up with the rights of the non-Muslims to practice their faith and doing what they want as long as it is doesn't break any law.
So, don't try to turn the tables on your political foes MCA and Gerakan because they are the moderate parties and their leaders and members are also the moderate ones, unlike you people in DAP and your partners in Pakatan Rakyat.
And who is telling you that Umno supports PAS' hudud?
You should instead give more attention to PAS for its refusal to compromise on its plan to implement hudud law should Pakatan wins the next general election. What have you done to stop them when your dad Kit Siang and Karpal Singh were so sharp in hammering Nik Aziz and Hadi Awang?
Got no balls to join them? Or you simply dont want to interfere because you enjoy the free ride on PAS in Penang! I think you yourself like hudud!
Its good that you also defended PAS by saying that while the Islamist party only wanted to implement hudud to Muslims in the country, Umno had wanted to implement Islamic laws on all Malaysians. From where did you get such a story?
Guan Eng, bro! The national transformation policy, through the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and the Economic Transformation Programme, was centred on the Maqasid Al-Shariah
Maintaining accounts, protecting respect and origins and preserving the assets through a strong economy, these are principles of the Maqasid Al-Shariah. In addition, the 1Malaysia People's Textile Shop represents another element of the Maqasid Al-Shariah.
So, stop talking nonsense. If your intention is just to see MCA, Gerakan, MIC and other non-Muslim parties to leave the political pact, you should try again and again because as far as MCA is concerned, they are comfortable with BN and the Islam of Umno.
Besides religious observance, Islam also placed importance on good morals among the people. The concept of merging the intellect with religion was also important in the development of Islamic leadership and civilisation.
Muslims were also facing a challenge when Islam was not perceived as a goal that should be championed and instead made as a tool to achieve a political objective.
That's why there is chaos among the Muslims. Starting from an uncertain direction...one minute championing an Islamic nation, the next minute changing to a welfare state, then there is hudud right up to the problem that we read in the newspapers about husband and wife separating due to politics.
So, YAB Ustaz Lim Guan Eng, please stop saying what you are not certain of. It does not reflect the level of your maturity. Even your politics really suck!
