DAP’s MP of Petaling Jaya Utara, Tony Pua Kiam Wee made a very silly statement in his Facebook page.
On Friday, February 14, 2014, JAKIM’s Friday sermon talked about why Muslims must not celebrate Valentine’s day.
Look at what Tony Pua wrote:
From what he wrote, he clearly try to mock JAKIM especially by writing:
“Oh no. I feel so unclean and immoral now I might just burn in hell.”
May be Tony Pua does not know that Friday sermons are read in the mosques and to be addressed to the Muslims and not to the non-Muslims like him.
Is it fair for a Malaysian politician like Tony Pua to mock other people’s religion especially Islam which is the religion of the Federation?
DAP always talks about Article 11(3) of the Federal Constitution and now what is Tony Pua’s right to interfere with another religion which is not his?
Freedom of Speech?
What would he say if a Muslim politician from UMNO make such an open rude statements to make fun of his religion?
On top of that, Tony Pua had clearly humiliate Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia that says:
“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.”
Apart from mocking Islam, Tony Pua also failed to understand the phrase, “other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation”.
A very senior lawyer, Uncle Naser Disa says “other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation” means that people from other religions must practise their religions in peace and harmony with others from different religions especially Islam, which is the religion of the Federation of Malaysia.
Is Tony Pua proud of mocking other people’s religion?
But what about his integrity?
Well, may be integrity means nothing to him.
I wonder if Hannah Yeoh will call Tony Pua a racist?
Yesterday I attended the Forum Islam Dan Cabaran Semasa – Polemik Isu Kalimah Allah at the Auditorium Utama, Universiti Islam Antarabangsa.
I think Uncle Naser Disa’s speech was the most interesting because as a lawyer he always explains issues according to the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
Uncle Naser said that according to the Federal Constitution, all politicians and all Malaysians must obey the decisions and the decrees made by the Sultans or the royal leaders of Malaysia on the ‘kalimah Allah’ issue.
However, the opposition parties, Pakatan Rakyat challenged the decree made by the Sultans that prohibited the word Allah from being used by non-Muslim to refer to their gods.
Uncle Naser went on saying that if the politicians failed to respect the Sultans’ decree on this matter, their nominations as the candidates in the coming general election should not be accepted because according to Section 298A of the Penal Code what they did is against the law.
And the Selangor’s Menteri Besar or the Chief Minister of Selangor and his excos should resign from their posts if they still cannot obey the supreme leader of Selangor, the Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj.
As I wrote in, ‘PAS Says, “Yes” For The Word “Allah” In The Malay Version Bible‘, I think that the opposition parties do not understand Article 3(1) and 11(4) of the Federal Constitution, so Uncle Naser Disa is right; those who fail to understand and respect the law and the Federal Constitution should not be accepted as our leaders.
