Malaysia Bukan Sekular

28 03 2017

Salah tanggapan bahawa Perlembagaan Malaysia bersifat sekular kerap berlaku memandangkan ramai yang tidak memahami definisi sebuah negara sekular. Masih ramai yang merasakan bahawa Malaysia adalah sebuah negara sekular dengan Islam hanya sebagai agama rasmi. Perkara ini bertambah parah kerana adanya golongan yang dengan sengaja dan penuh tipu helah mendesak supaya Malaysia dinobatkan sebagai sebuah negara sekular demi untuk mencapai agenda mereka untuk menjatuhkan Agama Negara, iaitu Islam.

Untuk memahami perkara ini, kita mesti melihat dua dokumen penting, Perlembagaan Persekutuan Malaysia dan buku ‘The Principles of Secularism Illustrated’ yang ditulis oleh George Jacob Holyoake, pengasas sekularisme. Di dalam buku tersebut, George Jacob Holyoake mendefinisikan sekularisme sebagai pemisahan agama daripada pentadbiran negara. Manakala Perlembagaan Persekutuan Malaysia, melalui Perkara 3(1) mengistiharkan bahawa Islam adalah agama bagi Persekutuan.

Jika sekular bermakna memisahkan agama daripada pentadbiran negara, bagaimana mungkin Malaysia dikategorikan sebagai sebuah negara sekular sedangkan Perlembagaan Persekutuan sendiri menyebut bahawa Islam adalah agama Persekutuan?

Jadi, apakah ciri-ciri negara sekular? Kita ambil Amerika Syarikat, sebuah negara sekular yang dikenali ramai sebagai contoh. First Amendment (Amendment I) kepada Perlembagaan Amerika Syarikat menyatakan dengan khusus tentang pemisahan agama daripada pentadbiran negara selaras dengan definasi sekularisme. Ciri-ciri ini menjadikan Amerka Syarikat sebagai sebuah negara sekular.

Amendment I: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Oleh kerana Perlembagaan Amerika memisahkan gereja (agama) daripada pentadbiran negara, maka kerajaan Amerika tidak boleh ada kena mengena dengan agama. Malah adalah melanggar perlembagaan negara itu jika lambang agama termasuk lambang agama Kristian di letakkan di atas tanah kerajaan, biarpun majoriti penduduknya adalah beragama Krisitan. Contoh terbaik ialah kes Mount Soledad Easter Cross di San Diego, California.

Pada tahun 1954, sebuah palang salib berukuran 9 meter tingginya dibangunkan di atas sebuah tanah perkuburan milik kerajaan. Perkara ini membawa kepada kes mahkamah yang berlarutan sehingga lebih 25 tahun dan akhirnya pada tahun 2011 mahkamah mengekalkan keputusan bahawa binaan palang salib di atas tanah kerajaan melambangkan sokongan kerajaan kepada agama yang tidak berperlembagaan atau “an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion” dan telah melanggar ‘First Amendment’ Perlembagaan Amerika.

Juga di Amerika, 14 palang salib putih telah didirikan di tepi lebuhraya di antara Farmington dan Kaysville di Utah bagi memperingati 14 orang anggota polis trafik lebuhraya yang terkorban di situ. Kes itu dibawa oleh kumpulan American Atheists hingga ke Mahkamah Rayuan Amerika dan akhirnya ketiga-tiga hakim mahkamah itu memutuskan bahawa salib-salib putih tersebut melanggar “Establishment Clause” Perlembagaan Amerika (“white crosses violate the Establishment Clause of the Constitution”) kerana salib-salib itu adalah lambang agama, maka tidak boleh didirikan di atas tanah kerajaan.

Contoh kedua ialah Turki, sebuah negara yang sering disalahanggap sebagai sebuah negara Islam. Walaupun 98 peratus penduduknya beragama Islam, Perkara 2 Perlembagaan Republik Turki menyebut bahawa Turki adalah negara sekular.

ARTICLE 2- The Republic of Turkey is a democratic, secular and social state governed by rule of law, within the notions of public peace, national solidarity and justice, respecting human rights, loyal to the nationalism of Atatürk, and based on the fundamental tenets set forth in the preamble.

Oleh itu, kerajaan Turki tidak boleh menggunakan apa-apa nama atau lambang agama kepada apa-apa institusi di negara itu sehinggakan kerajaan Turki terpaksa menamakan bank Islam negara itu sebagai Bank Ortak (Bank Partisipasi).

Bukan setakat itu sahaja, malah perlembagaan sekular Turki juga menghalang hak wanita Islam untuk bertudung di bangunan kerajaan seperti pejabat kerajaan, mahkamah, sekolah dan universiti. Malah, ahli parlimen Istanbul, Merve Kavakçı pernah dilarang memasuki parlimen negara itu kerana bertudung walaupun akhirnya beliau dibenarkan atas nama Hak Asasi Manusia. Namun, hak untuk wanita lain bertudung di bangunan awam masih dinafikan. Itulah keadaannya di negara sekular.

Begitu juga India. Mukadimah Perlembagaan India menyebut bahawa India adalah sebuah negara sekular.

“WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens …”

Maka, walaupun Perlembagaan India masih mengiktiraf agama, namun India tidak mempunyai agama rasmi, jauh sekali agama negara kerana sebagai sebuah negara sekular, negara India tidak boleh mempunyai agama.





GE13: So It Is True That PKR Is After A Revolution?

4 05 2013

My big sister’s, Aeshah Adlina Weblog received an ‘interesting’ comment from ‘PKR 4 the win’ on her post, “Pakatan’s new Malaysia flag: Not a copycat? Turning Malaysia to a Republic?”

‘PKR 4 the win’ submitted this comment at 10:53 pm on 2013/04/25:

“President Soekarno was right when he said that malaysia is a country without ideology and identity.

There was no revolution and no struggle for independence in malaysia. The country was not created by the people, it was created by a deal between britain and sultans.

Malaysia does not have a state ideology and no real constitution. This country exclusively consists of deals and compromises. (just like that american style flag)

This injust corrupt monarchist regime can not survive if the people get a certain level of education and access to independent information.

It is just a matter of time until malaysia becomes a democratic republic, because even the brain of the most stupid conservative racist religious idiot will at some point develop if the general level of education rises.

weapon of BN: fear, racism and stupidity

weapon of PKR: education, information and justice”

How interesting!

“President Soekarno was right when he said that malaysia is a country without ideology and identity.”

First Soekarno was a leftist that supported socialist and communism ideologies.

Wikipedia says that:

“The early 1960s saw Sukarno veering Indonesia to the left by providing support and protection to the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) at the expense of the military and Islamists. He also embarked on a series of aggressive foreign policies under the rubric of anti-imperialism, with aid from Soviet Union and China.”

It is wrong for Soekarno to say that Malaysian has no ideology and identity.

I think Soekarno said that just because he did not agree with Malaysia’s political systems because Malaysia never and until today does not believe in socialism and communism.

“Malaysia does not have a state ideology and no real constitution. This country exclusively consists of deals and compromises. (just like that american style flag)”

Uncle Naser Disa taught me that Malaysia is an Islamic country and Malaysia has a very strong Federal Constitution that protects the people and the rights of the King and Sultans to protect Islam as the religion of the country.

I wonder if the commenter ever study our Federal Constitution before commenting.

Regarding, “just like that american style flag”; does it means that the commenter is against the Malaysian flag, ‘Jalur Gemilang’?

And does that means that the commenter is admitting that PKR and its allies want to change the Malaysian flag to a new flag which they called ‘Sang Saka Malaya’?

Those people accused that ‘Jalur Gemilang’ is similar to the flag of the United States but can’t they see that their ‘Sang Saka Malaya’ is almost the same as the Singaporean and the Indonesian flag?

The design of Sang Saka Malaya is also similar to the design and colours of socialist and the communist flags.

The commenter also complained and not happy about the monarch.

Complaining about the monarch means that the commenter wants Malaysia to be a republic country because without the king, Malaysia will become a republic country, and even a secular country which Malaysia is not and never has been.

According to a very senior lawyer, Hj Mahamad Naser bin Disa, the word secular doesn’t exist in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia; and the Article 3 (1) says that:

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

In fact judge Tun Salleh Abbas said that Malaysia only uses secular rules and not a secular country so that means the commenter is against the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

“It is just a matter of time until malaysia becomes a democratic republic”.

Time for Malaysia to become a democratic and republic country?

Thank you to the commenter for showing the true colours of PKR.

Now the cat is out of the bag, the commenter has revealed PKR’s big secret that is PKR does not want the king and is after a revolution or ‘Malaysian Spring’ to turn Malaysia into a left wings, secular, republic country that supports the same ideas as Soekarno.

Pecah tembelang PKR, dah terbongkarlah rahsia PKR.

The commenter also wrote:

“weapon of PKR: education, information and justice”

“JUSTICE”???

If PKR is fair, how can CheguBard said that he was tricked by PKR leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim as was recorded in a video? Please click here for the video

And how can a person speaks about justice in PKR when PKR leaders lied about their dreams to change our Federal Constitution and to turn Malaysia into a secular and a republic country?

Can a cheater or liar talks about JUSTICE?

And I also wonder why this commenter and PKR’s leaders, members and supporters love revolutions, wars and violence that they think all countries need revolutions and bloodsheds to be a great country?

 

That is why we should not vote for PAKATAN RAKYAT!

Vote for BARISAN NASIONAL!
