Mujahid Yusof Rawa was at the #SalamSriLanka candlelight vigil last night to show his solidarity with the victims of the Easter church bombings. Our Minister of Religion, however, forgot to extend an invitation apparently to his “inspiration” Zakir Naik for the Dataran Merdeka event.
Hypocrite Hannah also appears to be MIA.

Some DAP evangelist politicians had made a big show of condemning the white nationalist crusader who shot dead 50 Muslims worshipping in their mosques in Christchurch last month.
One of the DAP’s most tearful emoji Christian YB ostentatiously prayed for “the affected [Muslim] victims”.
Vicious circle of Christian-Muslim retaliation
Sri Lanka authorities say the church bombings last week by Muslim militants on Easter Sunday was in revenge for the New Zealand atrocity.
But this time that particular publicity-seeking DAP politician just had “no words”, no thoughts, no prayers, no candles and no hypocritical public condemnation for the bearded Sri Lanka terrorists. Maklumlah, her evangelical party is always desperately fishing for Malay votes … and so, musn’t spook or discomfort the Muslims lah.
This week, a Christian American war veteran ploughed his car into a group of pedestrians believing they were Muslim. The deadly driver in Sunnyvale, California was on his way to Bible class – ref. tweet below by Al-Jazeera presenter Mehdi Hassan.
The suspect “seemed to be shouting like you would in church,” according to an eyewitness.
“He was saying, ‘thank you, Jesus … thank you, Jesus’!” as he rocked back and forth, said the woman who recorded his arrest on her cellphone and viralled the video.
While it’s common for the media to report terror attack perpetrators as shouting “Allahuakbar!”, this might well be the first that we’ve heard the alleged culprit invoking Jesus.
Remember Zakir Naik heaping insults on Christianity?
Some pundits say these tailgating, retaliatory attacks “tap into global anxiety about Christian-Muslim violence”.
There is truth in their premise that Islam and Christianity are two mighty civilizations clashing. After all, Sri Lanka is a Buddhist-majority country yet the terrorists there chose to target churches rather than the plentiful temples.
It has been estimated that more than 1,000 Southeast Asians (mostly Malaysians and Indonesians) “both fighters and their family members, supported and lived in the Islamic State”.
More recently, those Malaysians who fought for ISIS have come back home. Police, with the help of Jakim, are conducting rehabilitation programmes for Malaysia’s returning religious radicals.
Chinese vs Malay is 1970s, Christian vs Muslim is 2020s
Malaysian authorities had in 2016 arrested ISIS-linked individuals making bombs in Kuala Lumpur.
Aliran member Mary Chin gripes that in Malaysia Baru the ‘C’-word and the ‘M’-word have “become more lethal and toxic than the f-word”. By ‘C’, Mary means Chinese and by ‘M’, she means Malay.
In truth, ‘C’ for Christian and ‘M’ for Muslim is instead far more apt to describe the “lethal” mutual relationship between adherents of the two faiths who today are killing each other.
