Time to remove Nuts and Misfits from our Religious Establishment
What about this Monument, Harussani ?
If most of you thought Harussani Zakaria, the Perak Chief Mufti, who says wives cannot refuse sex on a camel, is bad, his deputy and successor, Zamri Hashim, is even worse. He is trying his best to outdo his boss in showing off his conservative Islamic credentials.
We don’t need Islamic State (IS) to destroy the country, because our own people and internal organisations are doing a good job of demolishing the country’s once solid foundations.
The ruling party UMNO wants to be the ‘big boss’, but so do the religious leaders. In the ensuing power struggle, the rakyat are caught in the middle. The ‘champion’ manipulates the behaviour of his victim (the rakyat) to satisfy his ego and sate his greed for material wealth.
Both Monuments (pictured above in Kuala Lumpur and Washington DC) were designed by Felix De Weldon. Malaysia and United States honour Brave Men and Women who gave their lives so that we may live in peace. But today Islamic idiots in Malaysia want to demolish our National Monument and other landmarks.These idiots come from Perak which boosts of Harvard and Oxford educated erudite Ruler, Sultan Nazrin Shah. Why do we allow Harussani Zakaria, Chief Mufti of Perak and his Deputy Zamri Hashim a free hand to make pronouncements that debase Islam? How much more can moderate Muslims in Malaysia take of this kind of crap?–Din Merican
A few months ago, Zamri, the Deputy Perak Mufti, said that wives and daughters were destined to go to hell if they did not cover their heads, or followed careers which were traditionally suited for males. From the way he spoke, it was as if he was given a list by God himself, detailing which groups of people are reserved for Hell.
Last week, Zamri caused public outrage when he told Berita Harian that the statue of an eagle on the Langkawi waterfront went against religious doctrine. He claimed that statues of living creatures are forbidden in Islam.
Like a good boss, Harussani endorsed his deputy’s statement, but stopped short of urging the destruction of the statue. Perhaps, Harussani had ordered Zamri to issue this ridiculous edict, so that people would not blame him for another odious remark.
The controversial group Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma) did not want to be out of the limelight, so they supported Zamri’s urging.
The way things are going, there will come a time when an overzealous mufti will proclaim that the practice of hanging portraits of the royals and the PM in our business premises is a form of idol worship and demand that these be banned.
How much more can the rakyat take? The Tunku’s brainchild, the National Monument (Tugu Peringatan Negara), is no longer the place where Malaysians pay their respects to our fallen heroes, on Warriors Day. In 2010, the National Fatwa Council ruled that the Tugu, with its larger-than-life figures depicting the brave men who died defending Malaya/Malaysia, was un-Islamic.
Today, we have fools deciding that the eagle statue, which is a crowd-puller in Langkawi, should be demolished.
The madness can end here and now, if only more Muslims speak out and make a stand.Sadly, it will not happen, because these Muslims, however much they object to the muftis, do not want to be seen as ‘going against Islam’. This shows how little they know their own religion, and they are so weak that they allow other ignorant Muslims to control their lives.
‘Seize all children’s dolls’
If the Perak mufti’s department and Isma are really sincere about making Malaysia an Islamic utopia, they should demand that government officials raid all private homes, paediatric hospitals, kindergartens and toy shops like Toys-R-Us and seize all children’s dolls like Barbie and Ken, adult life-sized sex dolls, and stuffed animals.
These toys should be dumped in the centre of Dataran Merdeka, the symbolic shrine which UMNO Baru privately claims belong to them, and have a mass ritual of burning these so-called idols.
In comparison with the actions of our religious leaders, the characters in Ray Bradbury’s book, ‘Fahrenheit 451′, seem to be indulging in child’s play. Are the Perak mufti and his deputy, as well as Isma, suffering from ‘penis envy’? Are they secretly against statues because thousands of people are attracted to them?
The religious leaders once conned the naïve Muslim public into believing that the statues of the Tugu were forbidden because they depicted humans. There was no mention then that statues of animals were also banned.
So, are the muftis making up the rulebook as they go along? What about the cat statue in Kuching and Francis Light’s statue in Penang? Why is the deputy Perak mufti interfering in Kedah?
We have a furore over statues today. What next? Dolls? Idols in temples and other houses of worship? That is already under way. What recourse does the non-Muslim community have when the inspector-general of police (IGP) justifies the actions of temple vandals by claiming they are mentally unstable?
Who do we blame for Malaysia falling into the gutter? Saudi Arabia, our leaders or ourselves?
Saudi Arabia’s petrodollars poured into mosques and Muslim charities as easily as we filled our petrol tanks. The Wahhabi indoctrination of our people was powered by Saudi money.
Our leaders love Saudi money, for obvious reasons. In exchange, they turned a blind eye to the brainwashing of Malaysians.
Finally, we have to accept responsibility, because we did nothing to stop this conservative Islamic madness. It is never too late, and you can speak up against our malevolent muftis, before they destroy Malaysia further.
IS destroyed ancient artifacts in Syria. The Perak Deputy Chief Mufti is advocating the same vandalism in Malaysia.
