Beginning tomorrow, the first day of 2022, politicking in Selangor’s masjid dan surau will be curbed by the state religious authorities.
According to MAIS, semua tauliah mengajar agama Islam yang sebelum ini diberikan aktivis politik di Selangor terbatal dan akan ditarik balik mulai esok.
The MAIS chairman said HRH Sultan Selangor – as the head of Islamic religion in their state – tidak perkenan tauliah diberikan kepada mana-mana aktivis politik.
While Muslim politicians who preach Islam can be regulated by MAIS, evangelical politicians who preach Christianity in the public arena appear to be outside any local religious jurisdiction.
And some DAP evangelists moreover memang suka keluar masuk masjid.
Nonetheless, should these evangelistas actually try to politick while inside the mosques, then they ought by right to be subject to sanction by MAIS as well.
For example, MAIS once suspended the committee of Surau Al-Huda in Kajang Sentral for allowing then DAP Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching to deliver a tazkirah in its dewan solat. See news report on 27 Aug 2010, below.
Although avid Christian Teo got into trouble with MAIS, the hiccup proved no deterrent to her colleague Hannah Yeoh.
The DAP Segambut MP recently declared with pride ‘13 tahun saya keluar masuk masjid’.
Will Hannah be able to continue doing this for her 14th straight year?
DAP preachers are also proselytizing politicians
Fanatical followers of Hannah are the most vicious online mob in our country.
They rabidly support all of Hannah’s shenanigans in the Selangor mosques, and have regularly ‘beaten up’ (metaphorically speaking) anyone in social media who dares to criticize.
Hannah herself has long been known by the sobriquet “DAP SuperCyber Bully”. It is a strange twist therefore to hear Hannah accuse PN leaders as being the “cyberbullies” — see Malaysiakini video report below.
Some wishy-washy local authorities in the Klang Valley will sadly knuckle down when they’re confronted by anti-establishment cyberbullies who threaten violence.
MAIS, however, is made of sterner stuff and will no doubt be vigilant about preachers who still want to politick in the mosques anytime after tomorrow.
This year, 2021, thankfully marks the last hurrah for preacher politicians in Selangor mosques.
