Non-Muslims have been advised to steer clear of the Bukit Bintang and Petaling Street areas in Kuala Lumpur on Sept 16.
I have a little conundrum on HYPOCRISY and HATRED for you to ponder on but first, the latest news on the Red Shirts rally, below.
Asked by reporters whether it was alright if a Chinese Muslim joined the rally, one of the Himpunan Maruah Melayu organizers Jamal Md Yunos replied that it was up to the individual.
Jamal is chairman of Gabungan NGO-NGO Melayu cum Sungai Besar Umno division chief.
On the acceptance of Chinese Muslims at the Red Shirt rally, let’s look at the other side of the coin – i.e. the Chinese attitude with regard to Muslim converts from their community.
Below is a random sampling of Chinese opinions expressed online about Ridhuan Tee Abdullah. These are the mild ones that are printable in my blog. The standard ones are so harsh as to leave you slack jawed.

Don’t be fooled by commenters using Muslim names like ‘Hakim Abdullah’ above. The RBA are everywhere in cyberspace.
The five comments above were screencapped from responses to an FMT article ‘Tee explains why he’s popular’ on 3 Aug 2015.
Articles on Ridhuan – be they in FMT, TMI or Malaysiakini – can always be depended upon to draw a torrent of hate comments from readers.

Looking at the non-Muslim reactions to converts such as Ridhuan, Alifah Ting Abdullah or Dr Chandra Muzaffar, do you reckon that much understanding and l-o-v-e is being shown to them?
Now do you understand why Hannah Yeoh was so quick to threaten a police report against anyone passing on the (false) rumour that she has converted to Islam?
She knows well the score among her Dapster fans.
And against that backdrop, what do you make of Madame Speaker’s latest sneaky ploy today?
PKR Youth chief Nik Nazmi tweeted about it:
“Good story on how columnist in Chinese paper condemned @hannahyeoh, a devout Christian for wearing a scarf in surau @BFMradio”
Certainly nobody can be blamed in innocently mistaking Hannah for a Muslim given her extensive public charade.
But when a Sin Chew columnist called her out on her duplicity, Hannah was sly enough to turn the tables against him by accusing him of “unbecoming” criticisms as well as having “extreme views”.
Hannah also deftly created a straw man argument, saying that the columnist Lim Fang failed to appreciate Muslim sensitivities whereby mosque custom requiring visitors to cover their hair.
What kind of a politician will stoop to manipulating religion like this? And mislead the Malays into believing that the Cina totok are anti-Islam when historically it is the evangelists who have perpetrated crusades in Muslim land?
MCA has failed miserably in protecting the Chinese from the Machiavellian machinations of the evangelistas.

Schizophrenic split personality
On the one hand, they spew venom at Ridhuan Tee. As an unpopular convert, he’s the primary target but their viciousness cannot help but spill over to disparaging remarks about Muslims in general, Islam, Malays and inadvertently also about Chinese, such as the pork-loving and mata sepet stereotypes.
Then on the other hand, these people are so desperate for the Malay votes that they pull the Occupy Masjid, puasa #sahur, stirring empty pot (tolong masak bubur lambuk, konon) in the surau and distributing kurma publicity stunts.
And most recently, they made a hullabaloo show contributing mineral water for Muslims to ambil wuduk when praying on the streets during Bersih 4.0. These contrived Kodak moments and anecdotes are instantly propagandized in the DAP’s wide social media.
Regular commenter Rina said @ 2015/09/05 at 1:28 pm that “this Amoy [ex-beauty queen Soo Wincci, pix right] looks like any other liquor promoter kat kedai makan 99 tepi kampung”.
Occasional commenter Norman responded @ 2015/09/06 at 8:07 pm, “Believe me you will never see a tudung clad beer promoter”.
Who are the non-Muslim women who wear tudung out of ulterior motives?
Then there is the DAP evangelista Adun Yeo Bee Yin – pix left – who is YB Damansara Utama, where the controversial DUMC church is located.
In her open letter ‘Congrats to Allah’s soldiers‘, Bee Yin mocked the four Federal Court judges who dismissed the Church’s application to appeal the ‘Allah’ case. She “congratulated” them for allegedly sacrificing their professionalism.
These evangelistas are not only sneaky, they’re snide and sneering.
With the planned Red Shirts rally, another facet to the race and religion card has surfaced.
The Sept 16 demo is widely regarded anti-Chinese. The hostility of the Red Shirts and their warning for Chinese to keep away from KL. is however not extended to mualaf Cina. Hence we see that the Red Shirts are making a distinction between Chinese Muslims and Chinese non-Muslims.
How will the Red Shirts react to tudung-wearing bangsa Anak Malaysia like Hannah? Will she be permitted to be in the rally’s vicinity?
The lost generation
It’s high time that the MCA makes it very clear to all at large that the provocation is coming from the DAP’s evangelical Christian extremists.
The Red Shirts rally is but a symptom of the Malay retaliation claiming they’ve been provoked. The root cause of Chinese provocative behaviour is the hate-mongering by the DAP evangelistas that has poisoned impressionable young minds.
Previously the Chinese teenager who stepped on Najib’s photo was 19 years old. She appeared in the DAP’s Gangnam Style music video.
Now we learned that a 15-year-old girl turned herself in to the police over the matter of stepping on Najib’s photo in Bersih 4.0.
Chinese youngsters are eating out of the palm of the DAP’s hand.
Who can possibly stanch the hate at its source? MCA has failed the Chinese community for allowing the DAP to successfully brainwash a whole next generation. And not to mention betray the BN by allowing its Nest of Evangelista media to backstab.
