A Godsend

In 1999, BN survived mainly because of the Chinese support. This support was partly due to the fear of PAS and its Islamic agenda. There was a swing of Malay votes towards PAS and PKR, but the swing was not enough to deny BN a big victory.

Then in 2004,  because of the “work with me, not for me” factor of the new PM, BN won big.

By winning a record number of votes, the government became so  big headed , arrogant and corrupted that many people chose to vote opposition in 2008.

Even Chinese and Indians, who were formerly so frightened of PAS’s ideology, had no qualm voting for PAS.  Actually it was not because they felt PAS is good, but because they were so fed up with BN that anything else was better than BN.

Some told me that nothing could be worse than UMNO. Thus the massive vote swing was not because of people liked PAS , but rather people hated UMNO more. PKR benefited in the same way, mainly because of the resentment of people towards the ruling party.

So, it would be wise for leaders of PAS and PKR, and to a smaller extent DAP, not to become too big-headed and arrogant like their counterparts in the Big Brother. To do that would be the surest way to lose support.

PR must understand that the odds are always against them winning the next election. After Bersih, things may have become brighter. Their odds have improved, and there is now a real chance of them winning the next GE. But having a real chance does not mean ‘sure win’. BN still has the upper hand.

In the run-up to the next GE, whoever fumbles and shoots himself  in his own feet would be doing a big service to the other side.

The recent JAIS raid of a dinner in a church is very high-handed and should be condemned by everyone. The MB of Selangor has tacitly acknowledged that when he regretted the action of JAIS.  But surprisingly, an exco under him, a PAS leader purportedly in charge of religious affairs, defended the JAIS action, giving the impression that he was all for it.

At the time of writing, we still do not know who ordered the raid. But the perception among the people  is that the exco in charge of religious affairs, the PAS leader, was behind it.

In PAS, like in any other party, there are factions; the more conservative and the more liberal.  But both factions must understand that the action of even one individual would affect the image and perception of the whole party. What the conservatives do would affect the liberals, and vice versa.

If he has actually ordered the raid, then he must be prepared to answer to the people and his more liberal party colleagues.   He must also realise that his very action of defending JAIS is a  Godsend to BN.

    When you are dealing religious fanatics from either side…it is God’s fun to see which idiotic party can win with games played in the name of glorifying Allah’s wishes.
    The recent event is a minus for PR…but you can be sure M.Bersar …Khalid will act quickly…and not allow a PAS blunder to spoil his reputation….as a liberal and democratic man for all Malaysians in Selangor.

    The flames of religious bigotry are being lit again by the very authorities who are supposed to be the gatekeepers of fair play and justice. Instead of ensuring peace and harmony, these very people elected to power seem to be hell-bent on causing strive and distrust.
    Those so called religious bigots in Jais have nothing better to do. Their racialistic dickhead Hasan Ali should be dumped into a garbage truck and buried. PAS should disown this idiotic no brains bum if they wanted non muslim support.

    Ultimately, what is the ultimate goal of all this? Creating tension? Hoping for a vitriolic reaction? Sowing distrust among people of different faiths? Insulting another faith? Showing that their very faith is the best in the world and nobody can interfere? Probably all the above.

    And they have probably succeeded in none of the above. Why? Because the citizenry have grown up, unlike the racialistic and holier than thou leader HA and his political masters.

    JAIS is not under the control of the Selangor State govt. It is under MAIS which is a federal agency. The officers of JAIS are protected from any interference from the PR state govt by the palace.

    I doubt Hasan Ali has the authority to order the JAIS. He was just expressing his support for it.

    Hasan Ali may well be an Umno trojan like Zulkifli Nordin in PKR. In PKR, Zul was always creating religious issues like an Islamic hardliner. Witness his deafening silence after he was sacked. This shows that his hardline stance in PKR was just to antagonize DAP and PR supporters. There was nothing religious about his intent, they were all political.

    PAS has also come out to say that Hasan Ali’s opinion on the JAIS raid are his own.

    Most PR supporters have already discounted Hasan Ali. They won’t fall for this.

We all have muslim friends and if they are willingly coming to your home to share your friendship and warmth, love, what nonsense is this raid all about? I think Malaysia is really going to the doghouse. Religious bigotry and intolerance. I am working in Jakarta these days and was invited to a friends company “buka puasa”. It was held in Kuningan, inside a posh pub called Liquid Exchange. There were about 30 of us, 50% muslim and 50% non-muslim. Everyone were happy, and there was much humour and laughter and camaraderie. Blue Jokes were shared openly, liquor was served discretely in mugs.

    Selangor is the crown jewel snatched from the hands of the ruling regime in the 2008GE.

    Pressing on religious sensitivites is perhaps part of the ruling regime’s strategy to regain Selangor.

    Hassan Ali may be a trojan horse planted to break ranks and incite religious tensions among the peaceful harmonious citizens in Selangor. The dinner was held to raise funds for HIV victims. HIV attacks not only one race. So if people of all races come together and have dinner over a common purpose, should not the relevant authorities allow such gathering. Why the suspicions and mistrust? The quick regret and a ‘gag’ from the Selangor MB helped appease the fire from spreading. This would not be the end of such purposeful disturbances into the religious quarters of the nation. So the people need to watch and pray.

    Could Hassan Ali have acted on his own or have received orders from on high?

    If it’s ‘proselytisation’ that they are afraid of then they have themselves much to blamed for failing in their job to spread the true message of Islam, no? Shouldn’t they be practising what they preach and show why Islam is a better religion that everyone should embrace. What’s the point of pointing fingers and blame others?

    If you in JAIS, hide behind and in the name of Islam, continue to bully your fellow-Muslims with disrespect like peeping into their private lives, meddling with the company they keep, raid their private homes and parties and wee-hours knock on their hotel doors to check for murtads, apostates, what’s the point? What about leaving it to Allah to deal with them direct? …but first ask yoursleves – YOU, the lot of YOU into ‘religious affairs’, search yourselves first. Are YOU and your family above board?

    Btw “peeping” is a perversion classed in same category as “paedophilia” – is that what Islam teaches? Is that what YOUR JOB is all about – paid to ‘peep’ and ‘raid’ on fellow Muslim brothers and sisters?

    When Lee Kuan Yew decided Singapore should join Malaysia, his late wife was skeptical as ‘communal’ was the main theme then.

    Then, because of ‘communal’ politics, Singapore left Malaysia, and till now, we still see this continue to play, while Singapore progresses by leap and bound in whatever field you named it.

    This ‘communal’ thing, to be exact, Malay, Islam and sultan plays, will continue to flourish (for wrong reason, of course) for another half a century at least, if not in perpetuity.

    Still, we should not waver but to make sure all vote for new government under Pakatan, even if ‘communal’ politics is still the main play.

    Agreed, but in our unique 1FunnyMalaysia, “state affairs” does not necessarily have to be “state government” affairs under the jurisdiction of the MB, head of the state government.

    As I understand, Sultan is the head of Islamic religion at state level, and as pointed out by Kenny, former Perak MB Datuk Nizar had to eat crow and apologise to the Sultan for his attempt to change the head of JAIPk (Perak equivalent of JAIS) because the head of JAIPk was uncooperative towards his government and was perceived to be trying to sabotage the then PR government. he was basically accused of hijacking the power of the Sultan in respect of state Islamic affairs.

    I deemed this as ‘godsend’ as Pakatan have experienced the difficulties in governing a state without Federal power, more so if the state is a Malay state, where the MB need to deal with the Sultan and Islamic authorities. Perception tell us how Sultan work vis-a-vis Umno and Pakatan. Even if the state is not a Malay state like Penang, big brother can still use Agong.

    You words were “this incident can reflect badly on state government, especially the exco in charge of religious affairs.”

    I don’t believe that this incident will reflect badly on the state government among the majority of educated and well-informed citizenry. We all know that JAIS not only acts independently of the state government, but also guards very jealously such independence. However I agree with your take on the exco in charge of religious affairs except that Hasan Ali already has the reputation of being non-liberal, very orthodox, uncompromising, cynical and intolerant when it comes to the matter of Islam. This means that this recent incident is unlikely to affect his reputation any worse than it already is.

    On the matter of the more liberal faction of PAS, unfortunately we are not going to know which faction prevails. Various signals from their various leaders seem to contradict one another.

    HarakahDaily reported PAS information chief Tuan Ibrahim Man to have said that “while JAIS may want to justify its actions in the name of defending Islam, it must be mindful not to create unnecessary controversies which could damage the name of the Selangor state government, the Islamic body, as well as that of Islam”. He however follow up such statement with another stating that “Muslims who were at the church attending the dinner should ponder whether their actions, unconsciously or otherwise, had caused difficulties to the dinner event as well as to the church concerned.”

    He also related an anecdote which gave the lesson that Muslims should not act in a way that attracts undue suspicion from the public and from the rest of his statement seems to imply that those Muslims who attended the function at the Church had attracted undue suspicion, this causing JAIS to act.

    The way I understand his statements, his opinion is that if JAIS had done wrong, the wrongful act could have been caused by those Muslims who attended the dinner function. Their innocent participation of the dinner “in a Church” could have unconsciously & inadvertently caused suspicions.

    The fact the Tuan Ibrahim Man is PAS information chief coupled with the fact his statement was reported in the party official organ Harakahdaily gives me the impression that his opinion had official sanction.

Perhaps this is the reason why our education doesn’t put emphasis on the important of English Language.

But then, if everyone does that, you can imagine judges have no time to sleep or even to ‘relieve’ themselves.

    Unlike in kindergarten or even primary school, ‘gag order’ is necessary to discipline the kids. So, in this sense, our politicians maybe like these kids that they don’t even know how to discipline themselves, then it is another issue altogether.

    ALWAYS REMIND THESE POOR MUSLIMS TO CALL OUT FOR HELP THRU JESUS’ NAME OR ASK THRU JESUS’ NAME. I AM HELPING THESE POOR SOULS AND SAVING THEIR LIVES. I DID’T CONVERT THEM TO BECOMES CHRISTIANS OR WHATSOEVER. I MERELY TOLD THEM THE SECRET. AM I WRONG OR DID I COMMIT AN OFFENCE OF HUMAN KIND?
    “AKS (IN JESUS’ NAME)AND YOU SHALL BE GIVEN”
    “KNOCK (IN JESUS’ NAME AND IT SHALL BE OPENED”
    “SEARCH (IN JESUS’ NAME AND YOU SHALL FIND”
    THESE ARE THE SECRETS TO ALL MANKIND, ESPECIALLY TO POOR MUSLIMS
