DAP suffers from ‘religious schizophrenia‘, something I’ve already mentioned before. And we’re now looking at the party’s bipolar problem acting up again.
Two of the party firebrands, the evangelical Christian Nga Kor Ming and Wong Kah Woh, raised a hue and cry recently about sekolah Cina signboards in Pahang that had Jawi writing but were missing Chinese script (see pix below).
Jawi’s relevance to Islam
According to Mahathir, Malay children learn Jawi so that they can read the Quran.
“Kita nak kena baca Quran, kena tahu Jawi,” Harapan’s Beloved Atuk was quoted as saying in his Sinar Harian interview on 12 March 2020 (news report via Malaysiakini).
When Mahathir was still the DAP’s prime minister 2.0, he greenlighted the teaching of Jawi in Chinese schools.

The logo of Mahathir’s political party is a Jawi character.
The Pejuang party name is represented by ‘pa’ written in Jawi while its three dots have also got their own Islamic symbolism.
Explained Mukhriz, “tiga titik di atas, melambangkan tiga rukun – Rukun Islam, Rukun Iman dan Rukun Negara”.
Earlier this year, Jawi super fan Lim Kit Siang strenuously denied that he “had betrayed the rights, interests and future of the Chinese in Malaysia” — see his tweet below.
DAP’s schizophrenic behaviour is sad to behold.
For one thing, the party is truly unable to shake off its anti-Islam reputation.

Yet at the same time, its prominent non-Muslim leaders have a veritable fetish for wearing tudung, occupying mosques, haunting pasar Ramadan, quoting Quran and Hadith as well as showboating Islamic poses such as their display of faux puasa during the fasting month.
And most importantly, demanding for Christians to use kalimah ‘Allah’.
Ordinary people who are non Malay and non Muslim find the bipolar behaviour of the DAP most bizarre, if not disturbing.
The average person does understand implicitly that politicians go around kissing babies and pressing flesh; they’re always glad handling anyone who can be their potential voter.
DAP however takes the art of appeasement to a bewildering level, leaving its loyal Chinese base who fear the Islamization process even more konpius than the proverbial Umno-PAS Malays.
