UPDATE: Kit Siang has retracted
Islamist party PAS just gave the evangelical party’s father figure 24 hours to apologize — see below.
In PAS’s political Islam, they have their own understanding of the term ‘Kerajaan Allah’.
Although Kit Siang is not himself a Christian, his son Guan Eng is nonetheless a Born Again and several prominent leaders in the party have drawn critical attention from the Malay establishment for their political Christianity.
DAP supports Christians in Malaysia to use the ‘Allah’ word, and have in the past (2010) claimed that they received Muslim backing for their stand — see below.
“Kingdom of God” and “God’s Kingdom” are common phrases to be found in the Bible.
Kit Siang, however, had apparently used the mixed language term “Allah’s Government” yesterday in a now deleted Facebook entry.
Following the Muslim uproar, Kit Siang has freshly updated his message on Facebook and Twitter using the more innocuous secular (non-religious) phrasing below.
