Eric Paulsen Slanders JAKIM

12 01 2015

Screenshot_1Human Rights lawyer, Eric Paulsen wrote on his twitter page on the 9th January that:

“JAKIM is promoting extremism every Friday. Govt needs to address that if serious about extremism in Msia.”

As a lawyer who claims to be fighting for Human Rights, Eric Paulsen must not make such false accusations towards others.

And if JAKIM does promote extremism “every Friday”, then I suppose JAKIM will not publish their Friday sermon for the whole world to see.

As a lawyer, Eric Paulsen must learn about the Federal Constitution and understand the Article 3(1), which says:

“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions maybe practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.”

First of all every citizen of Malaysia must accept and respect the fact that Islam is the religion of the Federation because that is an important part of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

According to Dato’ Naser Disa, a very senior lawyer who is also our constitution expert, the words, “but other religions maybe practised in peace and harmony” means that the followers of other religions must practise their religions in peace and harmony with others from other religions especially Islam, which is the religion of the Federation of Malaysia; and not to cause uneasiness towards the Muslims.

It does not mean that Islam and the Muslims must obey them and they can do anything to Islam.

Eric Paulsen’s harsh words had cause anger among the Muslims and that is already wrong because there will be no more “peace and harmony” as written in Article 3(1).

And non-Muslims has no rights to set the rules for the Muslim of how to practise Islam.

Has Eric Paulsen forgotten the Article 11(3)(a)?

Article 11(3)(a):

“Every religious group has the right—
(a) to manage its own religious affairs;”

Eric Paulsen and his friends always use Article 11(3)(a) when it suits them but now he is the one who rudely interfere with not just another religion’s affairs but the affairs of the religion of the Federation.

Eric Paulsen also bashed the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Khalid bin Abu Bakar and told him to be “neutral and impartial” after the IGP tweeted that Eric Paulsen should be arrested under the Sedition Act.

After all he had said, Eric Paulsen again tweeted that, “criticising Jakim should not be construed as insulting Islam” which I think is a lame excuse that could only be agreed by his friends who really hates the government.

Worst is Eric Paulsen does not criticise JAKIM but he slandes JAKIM and unfairly tarnish the Islamic authority.

JAKIM is the official Islamic authority in Malaysia and so, if he insults JAKIM, then it means that he also insults Islam, which is the religion of the Federation.

Eric also re tweeted some of Lawyer For Liberty tweets about some of JAKIM’s Friday sermons, including sermons about Surah Al-Baqarah Verse 120 and also about Syi’ah.

Like Lim Kit Siang who also thinks that he has the rights to interfere and complain about the verse from Quran, Eric Paulsen must understand that they are not Muslims, so they do not understand the concept of Islam and have no rights to teach  JAKIM and the Muslim about the verses from the Quran and other parts of our religion.

What is wrong when JAKIM warned the Muslims of Syi’ah which is a deviant teaching?

From his accusations, it shows that he knows nothing about Islam so it is silly for him to argue and fight about something he does not know or understand.

As a lawyer, Eric Paulsen must understands that the head of Islam is the Sultans and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and he has no rights to control Jakim or the Muslims.

I am very sad to see a lawyer who fights against the law instead of fighting for the law.
