JAKIM Condemn For Organising Forum That Did Not Promote Malaysian Unity

Surprisingly the  government of Malaysia allowed JAKIM to organise the forum that did not promote religious and ethnc unity!

M Najib introduced 1Malaysia to unite Malaysian from various ethnics group and religions. Despite the nationwide campaign to promote 1Malaysia, surprisingly there are some government agencies that fail to understand the  1Malaysia concept. One of the government agency that fails to understand the meaning of 1Malaysia is Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM).
Last Wednesday, JAKIM organised a forum to discuss on the High Court decision that allowed Catholic Herald to use the word "Allah" for god in its publication. Among the government agencies that participated in the forum were Institut Latihan Islam Malaysia and Attorney-General’s office.
There were two main points raised by the participants during the forum. One was on the muslim  politician  failure to defend Islam but only concentrate on Malay rights, and second point was they blamed the christians for challenging  the decision to ban the use of word "Allah"  in court .
In blaming the politicians failure to protect Islam, one of the participant Zamihan Mat Zin from the Institut Latihan Islam Malaysia said :
“Some politicians are ever so vocal when it comes to defending Malay rights but when it comes to their religion, they are quiet. What is the use of defending Malay rights if our religion is not protected?”
Zamihan said deliberate attempts were being made to degrade Islam, citing as an example the Catholic Church’s legal challenge against the ban imposed on the Herald weekly for using “Allah” to describe the Christian God.
“Extremism can be found in any religion and this challenge is definitely one of them,” he said and stressed that references in Islam that “Allah” was exclusive to the Muslims are pervasive.
Deputy chief of Syariah Research Department of the Attorney-General’s office, Mahamad Nasir Disa, who spoke on the issue from a legal perspective, agreed with his fellow panellists that the issue was an act of provocation by Christians.

“Often the argument given by them is that to deny the usage is to deny their rights to practise their religion but our argument is that the word ‘Allah’ is not an integral part of their religion as compared to us.
“If that is the case, then we can talk about rights. If not, don’t talk about rights,” he said.
Mahamad, too, agreed that there is “a lack of real leadership” in dealing with the matter, saying that the government had the power to prevent non-Muslims from using “Allah”.
He said that preventing non-Muslims from using the word “Allah” would ease ethnic tensions.

1Malaysia Will Flourist Without These Agencies

If Najib is serious about 1Malaysia concept, he must first reform these extremist agencies that make a living on not just muslims zakat but also on the  tax payer monies.
These agencies and all its officers who probably had been trained in Pakistan or Afghanistan only know the right of the muslims but never look at the right of the others. They must be the first to attend the 1Malaysia concept training otherwise 1Malaysial remains as rethoric.
Personally I felt  that JAKIM should not hold such forum in Sarawak so as not to spread such Taliban like thinking to corrupt the thinking of Muslims in Sarawak! I Love Sarawak..
