Is Najib’s Christian cabinet minister talking about allowing murtad?

A staunch Christian, Senator Paul Low is Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department who was appointed to the Cabinet upon the PM’s personal choice as he does not represent any political party.

On 5 May 2011, Paul Low attended the controversial function – pix below – at the Red Rock Hotel in Macalister Road, Penang where Sarawak pastors were the guests of DAP Member of Parliament Jeff Ooi.

The state election had been held in Sarawak three weeks earlier on April 16 where the DAP made splendid gains in the urban Chinese areas.

According to Zakhir Mohamed, better known as the blogger Big Dog, Jeff Ooi is No.4 in the Red Rock photo above; Ong Ah Teong, a Penang DAP municipal councillor is No.5 and Philip Tham, a Penang DAP man is No.11. The rest of the individuals in the photo are mostly pastors from Sarawak and Penang.

Ref. ‘DAP guna gereja sebagai pentas politik‘ (Utusan, 20 Oct 2011)

Utusan, in its front page report on 7 May 2011, alleged that the participants at the Red Rock function had pledged to support the Christian agenda of having a leader from their faith become the prime minister of Malaysia in future.

There’s actually nothing wrong with aspiring for a Christian to become PM as our constitution does not forbid or disqualify anyone from assuming the top office on account of his religion. Unlike some state constitutions which stipulate that the Menteri Besar should be a Muslim, the federal constitution does not have such a clause.

Nonetheless on 18 May 2011, Paul Low held a press conference to dismiss the claim reported by Utusan that a pact had been made at the Red Rock event to turn Malaysia into a Christian state. See, ‘TI-M head: No pact for Christian state‘ via Yahoo! News.

Fast forward to today’s news.

Below is what Malaysiakini just reported:

Freedom of religion is a fundamental human right which must apply to all, Minister in Prime Minister’s office Paul Low said.

He said that while he cannot argue with those who believe conversion out of Islam is forbidden, all should be able to choose the religion they want to follow.

“I cannot argue with that school of thought (Islam), but they (the Muslims) themselves must look at what is the basis of their objection to the rights of an individual. They have to go back to their scripture.

“But on the basis of human rights itself, without taking into context of any religion, the right to choose is a basic human right” … he said, speaking to Malaysiakini today.

There’s the Scissorati in the Umno Youth Chief’s office and there are the staunch Christians in the Prime Minister’s Office. Aside from Paul Low, there’s Idris Jala, Joseph Kurup (NUCC creator) and Joseph Entulu.

Are Mah Siew Keong and Wee Ka Siong Christians too by any chance? (Just asking)

  1. The day Umno government allows for Muslims to leave Islam, they should also bring down all the Umno signboards throughout the country and burn their membership cards.

    Remember Natrah?

    1. Menteri menteri Kristian yang dilantik oleh Najib dalam cabinet, bersiap sedialah untuk meninggalkan pejabat bila Najib ‘dihalau’ dari kerusi PM.

      Mereka ini tergolong jenis, ‘sudah murah lagi menawar’.

      Sudah jelas dalam perlembagaan orang orang Islam tidak boleh diganggu gugat dengan ajaran agama agama lain! Susah benar ke untuk mentaatinya.

      Kalau ingin sangat menjadi juara agama Kristian, dakwahlah orang orang Cina, India, Negrito, Proto Melayu, Kadazan, Iban dll.

      Jangan kacau orang Islam!

      Walaupun telah ada kelihatan Melayu ‘moderate’ (saya gelar mereka Melayu ‘burit’) dan liberal, tetapi golongan Melayu yang kuat jatidirinya memperjuangkan alif, ba, ta masih ramai lagi!

      Saya yakin kedudukan Islam di Nusantara tidak mungkin digugat sehingga ke tahap menghakiskannya terus. Ada kepercayaan pemimpin Islam akhir zaman (hampir kiamat) muncul di sebelah timur.

      So kepada pemimpin pemimpin Kristian, Ingatlah peristiwa Natrah seperti yang disebut oleh orang kampong!

      Jangan ambil mudah terhadap Melayu Islam yang kelihatan lambat panas, layu dan lesu. [deleted]

  2. Do Christians allow murtad themselves? Let me share one real experience.

    I knew of one uncle that was not allowed a Catholic funeral because he did not attend enough services.

    Poor daughter had to beg the Father and even at time sadness he demanded all sorts of proof of Church attendance.

    At the old man was given a Buddhist funeral, since the son-in-law was so sick of the Church antics.

    And everyone lived happily ever after.

    The end.

  3. “Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth has been made clear from error. Whoever rejects false worship and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks. And God hears and knows all things.” (Quran 2:256)

    “If it had been your Lord’s will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people to have them believe?” (Quran 10:99)

    “So if they dispute with you, say (oh Muhammad): “I have submitted my whole self to God, and so have those who follow me.” And say to the People of the Scripture and to the unlearned: “Do you also submit yourselves?” If they do, then they are on right guidance. But if they turn away, your duty is only to convey the Message. And God’s sight is over all of His servants.” (Quran 3:20)

    “The Messenger’s duty is but to proclaim the Message.”
    (Quran 5:99)

    The Unity of God, the necessity of love for Him, and the necessity of love of the neighbour is the common ground between Islam and Christianity.

    “Allah knoweth all that is in the heavens and the earth, and He knows what you conceal and what you publish. And God is Aware of what is in the breasts of men.” (Quran 64:4)

    Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

  4. …Iman yang KUAT will never leave ISlam… they dont need law to curb murtad.

    1. Many people don’t understand what they believe in so how could their faith be strong? And some also reject a belief because of their own ignorance.

      “In the Name of Allah the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful”

      The religion of Islam is traditionally founded upon the visitation of Archangel Jibril (Gabriel) as reported in Imam Nawawi’s collection of 40 famous hadith (hadith #2) which has been orally transmitted from generation to generation from the time of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. down to us Muslims today. It begins:

      “On the authority of ‘Umar (ra) who said:
      While we were one day sitting with the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) there appeared before us a man dressed in extremely white clothes and with very black hair. No traces of journeying were visible on him, and none of us knew him. He sat down close by the Prophet (ﷺ) rested his knee against his thighs, and said: “O Muhammad! Inform me about Islam.” . . . .

      The religion of Allah Almighty and Transcendent consists of three pillars: (1) IMAN (integrals of the divine creed) (2) ISLAM (articles of ritual and social obligations) (3) IHSAN (the element of spiritual virtue and moral excellence)

      The Hadith of Archangel Gabriel:
