Front Page Utusan Malaysia - Friday, 27th August 2010- Teo Nie talking to the muslim in a mosque was given the same coverage with the burning of Jalur Gemilang by Indonesians in Jakarta.
Both Nik Aziz and Asri Say that Non-Muslims can Enter Mosque.
About 26 years ago while I was studying in one of the boarding school in Telok Intan Perak, after prep-hours, I used to follow my muslim friends studying in the hostel's surau. I was told by them that I could enter the surau (prayer room) as long as I did not do anything forbid by their religion. This was going on for almost two years
My understanding about non-muslim entering the mosque stayed until I read the Utusan Malaysia on its Friday, 27th August 2010 publication, where the racist Utusan Malaysia condemned Teo Nee Ching the Serdang MP from DAP for entering the Surau Al-Huda. Her photo standing before a congregation at the Al-Huda surau in Kajang Sentral and delivering a ceramah in a kebaya and without a headscarf was published in the front page of the paper side-by-side with government condemnation of the Indonesians for burning the Jalur Gemilang in Jakarta. This racist UMNO own newspaper had tried to portray that the MP action in entering the mosque after she delivered the fund to repair the mosque was treated as serious as the the burning of the Jalur Gemilang by the Indonesian in Jakarta.
Why Did Teo Nie Enter The Mosque?
In defending her action, Teo said she had visited the surau on Aug 22 to present financial aid from the state government for repairs to the gate. She then joined the committee and the congregation in breaking of fast.
“As I was invited to give a brief speech, I made a sincere effort to explain about the state’s education programme for the benefit of the people of Selangor.
What Did Asri and Nik Aziz Say?
Former Perlis mufti Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin said that non-Muslims could enter a mosque as long as they did not besmirch the sanctity of the house of worship.
I've been boycotted Utusan Malaysia for years and I am going to continue to do so as long as the paper does not change it approach from racist and irresponsible to a peaceful and freedom loving newspaper.
Just look at what the paper published on its Friday, 27th August 2010 edition below.
It is a sin to expose any wrongdoing made by the leader....That what this minister try to tell Malaysian. His comment was related to Nurul Izzah interviewed with foreign newspaper regarding the purchase of submarine that cannot swim .....
Lim Guan Eng name mentioned during Friday prayer in Penang...
An Insult to Islam?
With this type of newspaper, there is no way that the 1Malaysia can be achieved. Just imagined in the military or the police when the Commanding Officer or the OCPD are non-muslim whereby their visit to the mosque are not allowed, or their muslim subordinates not allowed to pray for their safety...What type of multi-racial nations are we?
