Isma supports MAIS on the ‘Allah’ bibles issue.
MCA is against the action by MAIS and wants the bibles returned.
Isma thinks MCA is becoming a DAP clone. That would be correct.
Isma suggests that MCA dissolves itself and its members join DAP. Jolly good idea.
Why doesn’t MCA just put an end to its hypocrisy?
Everybody can see how Dapsterish the MCA has become.
Some of the MCA leaders are certainly evangelistas. And the BN Trojan horse’s media empire is the EvangeliSTAR.
Hannah wants JAIS officer suspended
Evangelistas, like Madame Speaker – who had demanded that the bibles be returned and wants the Selangor Menteri Besar to suspend the JAIS officer responsible for the Al-Kitab seizure (see @hannahyeoh’s tweet below) – are taking Muslims for spineless fools.
Since the Muslims and their NGOs are not spineless nor fools, they are rallying around MAIS.
The Muslims are in fact quite prepared for jihad. Are the evangelistas ready to face a jihad?
The evangelistas practise a creepy cult version of Christianity.
These evangelistas are demanding their right to Freedom of Religion under Article 11 of the Federal Constitution which reads, (1) Every person has the right to profess and practice his religion and, subject to Clause (4).
Yes, they are free to worship their 3-in-1 God in Malaysia but subject to Clause (4).
Clause (4) gives the state the power to restrict the propagation of Christianity to Muslims, and furthermore Selangor itself has an enactment prohibiting the use of the ‘Allah’ terminology by Christians.
Obey the law
This is a state law that is binding in Selangor.
Although the ruling party has 44 Aduns (four out of every five Selangor Yang Berhormat is a Pakatan rep) in the 56-seat assembly, none of the Pakatan Aduns have challenged the 1988 enactment.
Therefore, it behooves all the noisy Christians, who voted for these Pakatan politicians, to abide by the law of the state which the politicians they elected to office are sworn to uphold.

Must keep “public order”
Article 11 of the Federal Constitution permits freedom of worship but its clause (5) reminds Malaysians that this does not include “any act contrary to any general law relating to public order”.
Islam is the religion of the Federation but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony alongside Islam in Malaysia. Stealing the ‘Allah’ word, however, is far from practising Christianity in peace and harmony. It is practising Christianity in thievery.
Court of Appeal judge, Mohamed Apandi Ali, in his judgment on the Herald-Allah case had said:
“It is my judgment that, based on the facts and circumstances of the case, the usage of the word ‘Allah’ particularly in the Malay version of the Herald, is without doubt, do have the potential to disrupt the even tempo of the life of the Malaysian community. Such publication will surely have an adverse effect upon the sanctity as envisaged under Article 3(1) and the right for other religions to be practiced in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation. Any such disruption of the even tempo is contrary to the hope and desire of peaceful and harmonious co-existence of other religions other than Islam in this country.
“In the circumstances and the facts of the case I am also mindful of the Latin maxims of ‘salus populi suprema lax’ (the safety of the people is the supreme law) and ‘salus republicae suprema lax’ (the safety of the state is the supreme law) do co-exist and relevant to the doctrine that the welfare of an individual or group must yield to that of the community. It is also my reading that this is how the element of ‘in peace and harmony’ in Article 3(1) is to be read with the freedom of religion in Article 11(1) of the Federal Constitution.”
Justice Mohamed Apandi’s written judgment here.

Shattering peace and harmony
The evangelistas’ insistence on using the ‘Allah’ word will prompt the Muslims to launch a jihad to defend the sanctity of God.
The authorities should anticipate that public order will be disrupted and, peace and harmony shattered, should the evangelistas be allowed to persist in their present provocative behaviour.
