“And we have also clearly mentioned that the new laws will not interfere with Article 3 of the Federal Constitution, which states that Islam is the official religion of the federation and other sections which talk about the rights of the Malays and the rulers,” he added.
Exasperated by the attacks from Muslim groups which claimed the bills were drafted to uphold the “liberal-secular” conventions of human rights and drafted by those who were anti-Malay and anti-Islam, Mujahid countered by pointing out that he was himself an Islamic scholar.
“I don’t know what is Islamic to them. I am an Islamic scholar. They are saying that they can condemn other religions but the same cannot be done to them. That is not Islamic,” he said.
The bills, he noted, are “very Islamic” as all stipulations in them were based on the teachings of the Quran.
re: “… Article 3 of the Federal Constitution, which states that Islam is the official religion of the federation … “
Article 3 of the Federal Constitution says that Islam is the religion of the Federation and not the official religion of the Federation.
re: “I don’t know what is Islamic to them. I am an Islamic scholar”.
Is Mujahid a real Islamic scholar or is he only a PAS’s scholar?
Below is what I copied from his blog:
1) Doktor Falsafah (PhD) Siyasah Syariah, UM 2) Sarjana (MA) Pembangunan Sumber Manusia, UPM 3) BA Bahasa Arab & Sastera, Al Azhar, Mesir
Mujahid also made a lot of statements against the teaching of Islam, the rights of Muslims, Muslim authorities, Muftis, Muslim scholars and Muslim activists.
re: “The bills, he noted, are “very Islamic” as all stipulations in them were based on the teachings of the Quran.”
In another article by TMI, “Let Parliament debate protection for gays and lesbians, NGOs tell Unity Council”, it wrote that in the draft of the bills, there is a clause supporting LGBT.
So how could Mujahid claimed that, “the bills are “very Islamic” as all stipulations in them were based on the teachings of the Quran”?
LGBT is against the teaching of Islam and not part of the teachings of the Quran.
On the first day of the Seminar Dakwah Nasional, we were very busy getting ready for the arrival of the Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) of Malaysia, YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to officiate the seminar.
As the DPM entered the Dewan Merdeka, every body stood up.
I was very lucky as I was given a special permission to greet the DPM as he entered the hall.
I was looking at the DPM as he walked to the stage when somebody shook my hand while hugging me and when I turned around I was so surprised to see Uncle Nasharudin Mat Isa.
Uncle Nasharudin was part of the DPM’s entourage so we cannot talk to each other, anyway he greeted me while I was busy snapping the photo of the DPM receiving a special souvenir from Dr. Aiman Zaidan (which was a gift from a renowned Muslim scholar, Dr. Yusuf AL-Qaradawi). >>Please click here<<
So, when I met Uncle Nasha again the next day (for he’s going to present a paper at the seminar) I got the chance to ask him some political questions.
When I asked him, “Why do some Muslim leaders regard politics as more important than Islam?”, he said that he’ll answer it during his speech.
But politicians are politicians, Uncle Nasha answered my question by asking the question in another way to the audience!
After Uncle Nasha presented his papers at the seminar, all the media teams crowded him to ask him questions and the interview was reported by all the main medias especially the on-line medias until today and caused all kind of reactions from the leaders of the opposition parties especially his party, PAS and its ally, DAP!
I am very proud to be there watching the important interview and hearing the answers first hand.
I was very happy to meet Uncle Nasha and to have tea with him at Dewan Tun Abdul Razak after the seminar.
There are more important questions that I asked Uncle Nasha but I think that they are too private so I can’t reveal the answers in my blog even thought Uncle Nasha did not tell me not to do so 🙂
I think that it is not easy to ask ‘sensitive’ and ‘private’ political questions to politicians like Uncle Nasharudin Mat Isa 😉
