1Malaysia, 2Standards


When a certain someone and his konco-konco is unhappy with a court decision, he explicitly allows demonstrations to protest against the court decision and you do not see it as being a threat to national security. Tell me, isn’t that double standard?

Too much emphasis has been put on the ‘Allah’ word controversy. Wake up my dear Muslim friends; show me prove that it has been spelled out in the Holy Quran or Hadith that other religions cannot use the word ‘Allah’, when it is only a translation of the word God from Arabic language. Can’t you see that these people are messing with your minds?

This is an embarrassing moment for Malaysians, wait, let me rephrase that.

This is an embarrassing moment for the Peninsular people. That’s right, for the Peninsular people. Why? Because Christians in Sabah and Sarawak has been using the word 'Allah' in reference of God since God-knows-when! I’ve heard it myself. My uncle uses it. My aunt uses it. Are the Muslims there confused? Do you hear any Muslim politicians from Sabah and Sarawak going against the court decision as well?

The controversy is the talk of the nation right now. But my friends in Borneo are just shrugging and worst, laughing at us. Media from around the world has also begun to take interest in this issue. Several religious groups has also commented and responded to this controversy.

But why am I, a Hindu, taking such an interest in this issue you may ask? Well, for a start, I am a Malaysian who wants peace and harmony despite of all our cultural diversity. Plus, I am pissed off with the blah-dee government which seems more interested to divert the rakyats attention to some so-called national sensitivity rather than spending more time to assess and rectify the economic situation. Gula 1kg naik 20 sen, roti Gardenia naik 30 sen? Korang letak 1.5kg gula dalam satu bungkus roti ke??!!! @#$%^&*!!!

In before the kepala lembu protest.


* I do not know much about Islam, but I do my homework to learn and respect another religion. Do you?
* 1Malaysia? We are back to square one!

Allah itu adalah tuhan seluruh alam. Tuhan bagi semua umat manusia.

Kalau ikutkan sebenarnya, penggunaan nama Allah adalah untuk agama samawi (agama yang dtg dr tuhan directly bukan manusia sebagai pengasas) dan itu termasuklah agama Kristian.

Tetapi makna Allah untuk agama samawi adalah tuhan yang satu. Allah ahad. Jadi apabila Kristian skarang (Yang jelasnya tidak mendefinisikan tuhan sebagai satu malah percaya dengan kewujudan konsep triniti), itu yang mendatangkan pentakrifan yang salah dan harus diperbetulkan.

Allah itu bukan translation dari Arabic word stands for God. translation God in Arabic is Ar-Rab (Tuhan).

Yang penting sekarang ialah umat Islam itu sendri yang kena kenal pasti maksud Allah bagi Islam dan mendalami ilmu Islam lebih dalam. Jika pendidikan dari awal diberikan tidak mungkin kekeliruan mengenai Allah itu bersifat triniti bagi Islam.


++ Cerita gula pun menarik dan harus diberi perhatian yang wajar. Jangan nanti yang dikejar tak dapat, yang dikendong berciciran.

@blowie, aku tak kisah juga mereka mahu protes, asalkan aman dan tidak mencaci kaum lain pada masa yang sama.

k I know I'm a bit slow for this entry, plus this is so last year's news...
but here's a nice article/entry regarding this issue: http://amsieime.blogspot.com/2010/01/dikurniakan-mata-untuk-melihat-telinga.html

its written by a Muslim blogger, aimed at Muslims, and may contain a few verses from the Quran that may be a bit 'poetic'/not-easy to comprehend for those not familiar with the Book. but its enlightening nonetheless.

a catch tho: its in Malay. (Yeah I had a tough time reading and re-reading but gave myself a pat on the back when I finally finished it.)
