Lim Kit Siang Dah Terima Al-Quran?

On the 19th of July, DAP Parliamentary Leader, Lim Kit Siang used two verses of the Al-Quran in response to the Attorney General, Tan Sri Apandi Ali’s statement regarding the 1MDB issue; where the DAP leader quoted the translation of verses 42 and 60 of the Surah Al-Baqarah:

And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it].

~Al-Baqarah | Verse 42 | Sahih International translation

And [recall] when Moses prayed for water for his people, so We said, “Strike with your staff the stone.” And there gushed forth from it twelve springs, and every people knew its watering place. “Eat and drink from the provision of Allah, and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.”

~Al-Baqarah | Verse 60 | Sahih International translation

Al-Quran must be read as a whole, a person cannot cherry pick verses from Al-Quran to support one’s agendas.

Hence, it is wrong for Lim Kit Siang to cherry pick verses; if he uses verses 42 and 60 of the Surah Al-Baqarah, he cannot reject other part of Al-Quran including the verse 120 of Surah Al-Baqarah.

Had DAP’s Lim Kit Siang who obviously does not believe in Al-Quran, ran out of ideas on better ways to attack Tan Sri Apandi Ali and was too desperate that he had no choice other but to quote the holy Quran?

Most Muslims are not oblivious to the fact that Lim Kit Siang had arrogantly rebuked and condemned the holy Quran, claiming that the verse 120 of Surah Al-Baqarah causes religious hatred and blasted JAKIM for using the said verse in Khutbah Jumaat.

In other words, Lim Kit Siang’s spiteful accusation painted the idea that the verse 120 of Surah Al-Baqarah is detrimental to religious harmony; which is a malicious distortion of the truth.

And now he is using the same Surah to undermine Tan Sri Apandi Ali! 

What’s more, the verses that he quoted are not even relevant to be used in the context of his wild accusations towards Tan Sri Apandi Ali, but are more relevant to be used against himself, his son Lim Guan Eng and lots of other opposition leaders who slander the ideology of our country by saying that Malaysia is a secular country, fighting against the Federal Constitution that enshrines Malaysia as an Islamic country, questioning the constitutional duties of the government to protect the religion of Islam, trying to lower the position of Islam in Malaysia to the same level as other religions, making baseless and malicious accusations towards the Islamic authorities, fighting for the rights of LGBT and a lot more of other things.

Lim Kit Siang is like a pot calling the kettle black.

If he is an honest man, why does Lim Kit Siang say nothing regarding the problems in Penang, for example Lim Guan Eng’s ‘rumah terlajak murah tanpa swimming pool’ scandal?

As he did to PM Najib and Tan Sri Apandi Ali, he must urge his son to tell the truth and pressure the authorities and Tan Sri Apandi Ali to take stern actions against all the cases involving the Penang government.

Indeed, despite the opposition’s wild accusations against PM Najib, DAP leader Tan Seng Giaw, a member of the Public Accounts Committee(PAC) agreed with PAC’s investigation regarding 1MDB that says PM Najib is not accountable over 1MDB dealings.

Islam is above politics and I can’t imagine if there are Muslims who can tolerate anybody politicising Al-Quran, what more to support the misuse of Al-Quran for what ever reason.

Siti Kasim Finally Supports Act 355?

Liberal lawyer and activist, Siti Zabedah Kasim seems to be very mad, in fact it looks like she is steaming, raging mad after being advised by the Mufti of Perak, Tan Sri Harussani to not touch on matters concerning tauhid.

On her Facebook page, claiming that the Mufti of Perak accused her of “being an apostate”, she wrote that the Mufti is “punishable by 80 kali sebat according to the Quran” for making “a very big fitnah to accuse woman wrongly”; and she quoted the 4th verse of the Surah An-Noor to prove her point.

I am appalled by her arrogant attitude and her out of context self-interpretation of the holy Quran to suit her needs.

Fortunately, she is not a Syariah lawyer; as it will cause a deafening uproar in the courtroom if she insists that her out of context self-interpretation of the Quran is valid!

Anyway, it puzzles me when she talks about the punishment from the Quran; after all, isn’t she is the one who vocally complains about the proposed amendment of Act 355?

As I understand from her ridiculous stunts at numerous public forums, she is against the implementation of “80 kali sebat” and wants the maximum limit for whipping stays at only six strokes. 

May be her anger made her confused… 

As I wrote in my previous post, ‘Siti Kasim: Drowned by Freedom of Speech it is best for her to stand up tall and clarify the matter with JAKIM to solve the problem.

I also asked, “Or is she going to deny what she had said in the video and says something weird like, the video was edited by somebody to defame her?”

And I was right because on her Facebook page she told the Mufti to listen to her original interview and “not to get confused by the cut paste fitnah version by menara.my, fundamentalist website that is out to attack what the Islamofascists term as liberals”. 

Has she changed her mind regarding the proposed amendment of Act 355 so that the people who accused her can be punished as according to the Quran?

Siti Bedah must make up her mind!
