During the sworn in ceremony as the Menteri Besar of Selangor on May 14, 2013, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim gave his pledge on 10 Aku Janji or undertakings including:
To uphold the Rukun Negara or National Principles and preserving and protecting the sanctity and supremacy of Islam as the religion of the state.
To abide by the sovereignty of the institution of the Malay rulers defend it from any irresponsible quarters and to carry out his duties with integrity, responsibility, trustworthiness, honesty and sincerity.
To obey and follow the Sultan of Selangor’s orders or directions.
To protect the Malay privileges and the legitimate interests of other communities as enshrined in the federal constitution and the Formation of Selangor Government Laws 1959.
To put the people first so long as it did not affect the interests, stability, prosperity and security of the state; preserving good relations with the federal government and other states in the federation; ensuring racial unity by stressing on goodwill and cooperation between the communities.
Have all these people of Selangor forgotten that the Sultan of Selangor had made a decree and the Malaysian Court of Appeal has ruled that in Malaysia, Allah is the proper name for the Muslim’s God and cannot be used as a common name to translate the gods of other religions?
But Selangor’s DAP’s and PKR’s leaders and even some of PAS’s leaders had rudely made statements against the Sultan’s decree and after JAIS’s operation regarding the matter, they want Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim to go against the Sultan’s decree and to punish JAIS!
Why can’t they all learn to become good and fair citizens and obey the rules?
For example, DAP’s Hannah Yeoh, the Speaker and a member of the Selangor State Assembly made lots of statements regarding this matter which do not respect the Sultan of Selangor’s decree, Selangor Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Among Muslims) Enactment 1988 and Article 11(4) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
And another three DAP’s assemblymen even want to make changes to the Selangor Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Among Muslims) Enactment 1988 as reported by Malaysian Insider:
“Three Selangor assemblyman have called for a state law passed during the Barisan Nasional rule to be amended to ensure non-Muslim rights are protected as guaranteed by the Federal Constitution.State assemblymen Yeo Bee Yin, Rajiv Rishyakaran and Lau Weng San, representing the state constituencies of Damansara Utama, Bukit Gasing and Kampung Tunku respectively, said they would propose the changes to be made on the Selangor Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Among Muslims) Enactment 1988, at the next state assembly sitting.”
I wonder what will the Selangor’s Menteri Besar do?
Will Tan Sri Khalid obey DAP’s orders?
So far he has not taken any action to stop DAP from making all kinds of statements against the Sultan of Selangor’s decree.
Has Tan Sri Khalid forgotten the 10 Aku Janji or undertakings that he pledged on May 14, 2013?
But if he ignore Hannah Yeoh and other DAP’s leaders, DAP, PKR and PAS leaders will surely won’t be happy with him; and may cause them to force Tan Sri Khalid to resign his position as the Menteri Besar.
But how about the undertakings that he pledged?
An honest man will keep his words and will not betray the pledge that he made.
I was at the Palace of Justice court complex this morning for the hearing of the “Allah” issue but had to leave early because my father has other important appointments after lunch.
And just now, the Malaysian Court of Appeal rules that the church application to strike out the government’s appeal against a High Court ruling that allowed a Catholic weekly newspaper Herald to use the word “Allah” is dismissed.
Substantive appeal will be held on September 10, 2013.
The three-person panel lead by Justice Abu Samah Nordin, and including Justices Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim and Rohana Yusuf, were hearing submissions by the Church, Government and the Islamic religious councils from the states of Terengganu, Selangor, Kedah, Johor, Wilayah Persekutuan and Malacca, which were made intervener in the suit.
