Malaysians Say No To Irshad Manji’s Program

(On May 23, 2012, the BFM 89.9 radio had cancelled airing Irshad Manji’s recorded interview-please click here for the news.)

Tomorrow Irshad Manji was supposed to give a talk at Monash University, Sunway Campus in Selangor entitled, Moral Courage: Creating Space: for Islam and Democracy from 1.00 to 2.00pm which is during the Friday Prayer.

Someone tweeted her:

  Hi, selamat datang 🙂 Is this event catered to Muslim women only? Not gonna include Muslim men? Friday prayer is at about 1-2pm

She tweeted back:

  All r welcome, sis. Quran does not prescribe how/when 2 pray. This is man-made, not God-given, ritual. Salaam from KL

They choose the specific time for the program so that the Muslim men cannot hold a protest and to disgrace Islam because she claimed that, “Quran does not prescribe how/when 2 pray.”

But the program had been cancelled because of the ‘pressure by Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS)’.  

Borders Books also cancelled her program because of the security concerns.

Her publisher, ZI Publication is trying to find a public space in which Manji can discuss her book, Allah, Liberty & Love.

Do Irshad Manji and her publisher  really think that Malaysian Muslims really want to listen to her?

Malaysia is a Muslim country and the majority of the Muslims here are good Muslims who do not want to hear anything about her books because the books disgrace Islam.

So, only very few people welcome her here, those who are liberal like she is.

Rather than trying to reform Islam, she should make a change and learn be a good Muslim.

She is the one who should learn about Islam and not the one to teach other people the false Islam.
