Former DAP vice chairman Tunku Aziz Ibrahim’s most recent column is titled, ‘Say farewell to hypocrisy‘ (NST, 2 March 2013)
Tunku Aziz writes that some hypocritical DAP leaders are “shrilly, strident ideologues, particularly those with a blinkered, distorted vision of national unity”.
The DAP “religious bigots” (Tunku Aziz must mean the evangelistas) desperate for Malay votes will do what they’re best at — hypocritically posturing as preachers.

The hardcore Umno supporters among the Malays are furious at the way DAP is still riding on a hate campaign against Umno, writes Joceline Tan in her column today.
So many senior BN politicians as well as those in Penang have openly condemned the way that the opposition has been trading on the politics of hatred and disaffection. Yet the Pakatan politicians themselves still maintain the hypocrisy that what they’re preaching is the politics of love.
All is fair in love and war
The opposition will stop at no hypocrisy, it seems, in their quest for Putrajaya.
Take for instance their politics of subterfuge revealed through Zairil Khir Johari’s recent defence of his boss.
In his press conference, Zairil points out that Utusan was found guilty by the court for defaming Lim Guan Eng after the paper was sued for implying that the DAP sec-gen is anti-Muslim.
Guan Eng administration promoting halal
The Penang Chief Minister’s pol-sec also lodged a police report against Najib Razak a few days ago for insinuating that DAP would oppress the Muslims.
Whether fairly or unfairly, Guan Eng and DAP have long had a reputation of being anti-Islam. However Zairil proclaims that, quite to the contrary, orang Islam memang ditatang bagai minyak yang penuh oleh DAP.
Did the DAP Subang Jaya fundraising dinner serve halal food? (see Hannah Yeoh tweet, above)
Hasnah Yeop craves for dim sum
According to Zairil:
“Land valued at RM80 million has been allocated for the construction of a seven-floor Syariah Court in Penang that would replace the current two-storey building that houses the court. In addition, the state government has been actively promoting the halal industry, has acquired land to enlarge Muslim graveyards, and has increased allocations for mosque staff and religious schools.”
What Zairil stated above may be factually correct but nonetheless it doesn’t take away from the hypocrisy of his political party which is most adept at playing the religion card.
Dim sum not pork meh?
In her tweet this morning, Hannah Yeoh tweeted about how painful it is to look at her Twitter timeline which is “filled with photos of people having dimsum” for their Sunday morning breakfast.
As everyone knows, dim sum is full of pork dishes. So much for all the tudung wearing unless Hannah is craving for Pork-free Dim Sum.
The fact that DAP has cynically strategized its playacting (providing small allowances for mosque staff, allocations for agama schools, etc) to woo the PASters surely hints at the hypocritical methods of party’s Christian chameleons.
Hannah herself gives sedekah of RM1,000 to the suraus in Subang Jaya during puasa month.
By escalating the emphasis on religion and more religion as it is doing now, the DAP is not only raising the stakes on the religion card but, with typical Chinese efficiency, is attempting to out-Islamize even PAS.
