Dapsters were willing to provide all kinds of excuses to justify why it is perfectly alright for Hannah Yeoh and Teo Nie Ching to don tudung in order to traipse into mosques.
Their excuse is a circular argument, i.e. they claimed Nie Ching had to wear tudung because the Islamic authorities were displeased when, during her earlier visit, she was bareheaded. Which nonetheless still did not address the complaint of why the then DAP Serdang MP must persist with trotting into Selangor mosques despite the rebukes.
Only when MAIS issued YB Teo a formal warning letter did she put a stop to her shenanigans and even this was after the notoriety of appearing on the front page of Utusan — pictured wearing a body hugging baby-T and doing senamrobik in the mosque compound.
Paling gila publisiti
In the matter of Hannah Yeoh and her tudung modelling, the Dapters went into a second circuit of the circular argument.
They said that there is absolutely nothing amiss with her Occupy Masjid campaign and that Hannah Yeoh is compelled to wear the tudung as otherwise she would not be allowed to step into the mosque — a lesson learned from her evangelista colleague’s experience.
Which still begs the question of why Hannah’s fetish for invading mosques and her obsession for the photo ops — pictured in her tudung apparel. If she had sincerely wanted to give donations to the mosques, she can post a cheque, can’t she?
After all, mosques in Malaysia have been receiving donations from individuals and state assemblymen/MPs since before Hannah Yeoh was born. Never in the history of Malaysian politics has there been such a publicity whore as the Madam Speaker in exploiting the delivery of state-sponsored funding.
If one is genuine nak tutup aurat, then tutup lah betul-betul. Ini tidak.
The four Muslim ladies in the photo (below) have covered up until not a strand of their hair can be seen. This is not the case with Hannah Yeoh, however, where half her head left exposed. (In at least a dozen other photos, this DAP rank opportunist will nonchalantly drape the selendang as a mere fashion accessory and not in respect of the place of worship.)
Bak Kut Teh is suddenly not pork
Now with regard to the Felixia Yeap controversy – the Playboy bunny wearing hijab just for the heck of it – Ms Yeap’s Dapster defenders are saying that the hijab is not a Muslim attire.
This is parallel to the Alvivi (Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee) affidavit submitted in court which asserted that Bak Kut Teh need not necessarily be a pork dish. Some oppo supporters even go as far as to claim that the Alvivi ‘Buka Puasa’ invitation could have been for partaking “organic vegetarian Bak Kut Teh”.
In the matter of Felixia’s hijab, the Dapsters are insisting that there is no law in Malaysia against any non-Muslim choosing to cover herself in hijab.
While some Muslims may be find Felixia’s stunt offensive while others not, nonetheless the combative behaviour of the Dapsters in cuba menegakkan benang basah is nothing short of provocative. No ifs and buts.
It is particularly provocative when the Felixia supporters want to ban comments by Muslims (and other rational Malaysians) objecting to the lingerie model’s publicity stunt. In other words, the orang yang suka memandai-mandai itu are carrying out cyber terrorism to silence dissenting voices (see below).
Evangelista Bintang Tiga methods
It is the same modus operandi as when they shout “RACIST!!” to divert any legitimate criticism, e.g. Lim Guan Eng’s s allegation that “Umno raised racist issues because I am a Chinese CM” after he was chastised for calling the state opposition leader a “racist grandmother”.
Using the same Dapster standard operating procedure, a comment critical of Felixia Yeap’s hijab-wearing is characterized as “judgemental”, “full of hates” [sic], “jealous” and other deflections such as that the hijab cannot be allowed to be trademarked ‘For Muslims Only’ on account that the adherents of Islam in Malaysia are an “easily confused” and narrow-minded lot.
The DAP supporters will soon be pushing this diversionary SOP to a point where Malays and Muslims are effectively gagged from voicing any kind of unease on how the non-Muslims are exploiting their religion (of Islam).
Thereafter, whenever a Malay Muslim is made uncomfortable or wishes to object to the non-Muslims’ manipulation of Islamic tradition or culture, he will be beaten down by the Evangelista Bintang Tiga as a “religious bigot”.
