It is sad when a citizen of a country does not know and understand the constitution of his or her own country; and it is even worst if it is the leaders who made the mistake.
So, is it true that Islam is ‘the official religion of Malaysia’ as what was claimed by the Malaysian opposition leaders?
Do they ever study the Federal Constitutions or are they being dishonest?
Article 3 (1) of the Malaysian Federal Constitutions says:
Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practiced in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.
So it is a big lie to say that Islam is only the official religion of Malaysia because Islam is the religion of the Federation of Malaysia.
As Uncle Mahamad Naser bin Disa always says, if one has an official religion, that means the person also has other unofficial religions; making the person a Pluralist.
The oppositions leaders twist the fact to suit their agendas:
PAS wants the Muslims to believe that Malaysia is a secular country; and that only PAS is fighting for Islam while UMNO leaders are against Islam and hate Islam more than its non Muslims allies.
PKR says that Islam is only the official religion of Malaysia because they want Malaysia to become a Plural country.
DAP agrees with PAS and PKR because DAP does not agree with most of the Federal Constitutions especially regarding Islam and Malay Rights.
