Reading Anwar Ibrahim’s statement makes me feel so irate because he had gone too far to politise and sensationalisethis issue and maliciously condemning JAKIM, the authority and the government.
It is a defamatory attempt to disrepute the Islamic authorities and the Malaysian government.
Calling the government as “a government in a state of paranoia” is just like calling the Malaysian Muslims who are angry and hurt by Eric Paulsen’s series of humiliating and spiteful tweets as also being in the state of paranoia.
So now Anwar is trying to say that the people who are doing their best to protect peace and harmony and prevent hatred between the multiracial Malaysians are paranoid?
Or could it be that it is Anwar himself who is paranoid because he is too troubled by all the problems that he’s facing?
Anwar wrote that Eric Paulsen did no offense by tweeting his spiteful tweet, when Eric Paulsen not only made false and wild accusation towards JAKIM but indirectly humiliates Islam and spews hatred towards the Muslims who support JAKIM.
“… the over-reaction to Paulsen’s tweet also signifies the rising tide of religious intolerance that appears to be engulfing our multi-racial multi-religious nation. And fanning the flames of communal suspicion, hatred and hostility are the usual suspects who owe their existence to political patronage.”
Anwar accused the authority for “over-reaction to Paulsen’s tweet”, so my questions are:
What kind of tolerance does Anwar Ibrahim ask from the Muslims? Is Anwar asking the Muslims to become ‘Liberal Muslims’ who do not follow the rules of Islam, do not fight for Islam and do not bother if others humiliate Islam?
Who is actually “fanning the flames of communal suspicion, hatred and hostility”? Isn’t it Eric Paulsen who did that by maliciously accusing JAKIM as promoting extremism in its Friday sermons and continuously humiliate Islam and the Muslims in his other tweets?
Anwar is actually looking for trouble and is spewing hatred by making such statement; and if the government is really “in a state of paranoia” as accused by him, he would already be charged in court.
I seriously wonder, how can Anwar Ibrahim, a person who used to be regarded as a great Muslim political leader, has the heart not only to support those who defame Islam but also to defame Islam and the Muslims in order to support them.
He wrote that, “Jakim sermons have on various occasions made unwarranted attacks”, which is untrue and humiliates Islam because what ever was said in JAKIM’s Friday sermons are in accordance with the teaching of Islam Ahli As-Sunnah Wa Al-Jama`ah.
Anwar Ibrahim must sit down and think back of the things that he had said during the time when he was the president of ABIM and realise that the Malaysian Muslims are not Liberal Muslims because Liberal Muslims do not follow the teaching of Islam.
Even Pope Francis says there are limits to freedom of speech and that, “One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith.”
Remember what Karpal Singh once said? “Anwar Ibrahim has created enough problems for the country. Anwar Ibrahim harus bertaubat”.
PKR’s Deputy President, Mohamad Azmin Ali called medias for a press confrence today after writing statements on his twitter about Anwar Ibrahim’s Suara Rakyat, Suara Keramat program last Wednesday.
“Terima keputusan rakyat. Maju ke hadapan dengan dasar peduli rakyat bukan membuli rakyat demi kesejahteraan dan kemakmuran negara. Ikuti penjelasan dalam masa terdekat.”
But during his press confrence, he said something totally off topic.
“Khabar-khabar angin ini mengambarkan, saya akan letak jawatan dalam parti dan sebagai wakil rakyat yang dipilih sebagai ahli dewan negeri kawasan Bukit Antarabangsa dan ahli parlimen Gombak.Saya percayakhabar-khabar angin ini dimulakan oleh UMNO dan Barisan Nasional.”
Blaming UMNO and BN again?
But what has UMNO and BN done to him?
It was all about his statements, the Selangor Menteri Besar post and Anwar.
May be it was UMNO’s and BN’s conspiracy to let PR wins Selangor causing them to fight over the Menteri Besar post.
Article 11 (1) says that every person has the right to profess and practice his own religion but subjected to clause 4 of the Article which says state law and, in respect of the Federal Territories, federal law may control or restrict the propagation of any religious doctrine or belief among Muslims.
Apa Kecoh-Kecoh pointed out that Ngeh had forgotten the Article 160 (2) of the Federal Constitution that says that a Malay must be a Muslim, habitually speaks the Malay language, and adheres to Malay customs.

I am a Muslim and it is very sad to see how a non-Muslim leader dares to talk about Islam as if he has the authority to do so.
