Has The Selangor MB Forgotten His 10 ‘Aku Janji’?

Malaysian Insider - Sultan Selangor gesa Herald Bible Melayu henti guna kalimah Allah

Malaysian Insider, Nov 14, 2013.

In the above article, Malaysian Insider reported that the Sultan of Selangor told the Herald and Malay Bible to stop using the word Allah as the translation of the word god.

NST reported that the Sultan of Selangor said:

“This is because ‘Kalimah Allah’ for the Muslims refers to the ‘One God’, prescribed in the Surah Al-Ikhlas (in the Al-Quran).
The people of Selangor, especially, must respect and adhere to the ‘muzakarah’ (decision) made by the National Fatwa Committee, Selangor Fatwa Committee, laws as well as the unanimous decision made by the Court of Appeal in the case involving the Home Minister and eight others versus the Titular Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur on Oct 14, 2013.”

On October 14, 2013, the Court of Appeal ruled unanimously against allowing the Catholic Church to use the word “Allah” in its weekly publication the Herald; Justice Datuk Seri Mohamed Apandi Ali said:

“It is our common finding that the usage of the name ‘Allah’ is not an integral part of the faith and practice of Christianity. From such finding, we find no reason why the respondent is so adamant to use the name ‘Allah’ in their weekly publication. Such usage, if allowed, will inevitably cause confusion within the community.”

What he said is true for Allah is not the name of Christian god and the translation of the word god to the Malay language is tuhan and not Allah; in fact a lot of Christians outside of Malaysia think that it is wrong to call Christian god as Allah.

But some Christians in Selangor do not respect the Sultan’s decree and the ruling made by the Court of Appeal and still want to call their god Allah.

We must understand that as the head of state of Selangor, the Sultan of Selangor is also Selangor’s head of the religion of Islam; so it is the Sultan’s duty to protect Islam; and the Sultan has the rights to do so according the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

And Article 11(4) of the Federal Constitution gives the Sultan Selangor the rights to control or restrict the propagation of any religious doctrine or belief among persons professing the religion of Islam in Selangor.

So to the Christians in Selangor, please respect the Sultan of Selangor as he is our head of state and please respect the laws of Malaysia.

I really hope Selangor’s Menteri Besar has not forgotten the 10 undertakings that he pledged to the Sultan of Selangor on May 14, 2013.

PAS’s Khalid Samad On Allah Issue

Above is the conversation between Sir ZAPA and Khalid Samad who is a PAS Member of Parliament on twitter.

May be that is why there was no PAS’s flags nor PAS’s leaders at the court yesterday.

Islam is the religion of Malaysia and the government must protect the religion.

Even if there is no word in neither the Quran nor the Hadith about the matter, that does not mean it is okay if it can cause problems to the Muslims later as what is happening in Indonesia.

For example, I jogged for an hour and I’m hot and thirsty.

After that I saw a glass full of sweet, red, cold, rose flavoured syrup with lots of ice.

I could drink it but I know that I am allergic to red artificial colouring.

So, should I just drink it even though I know that it is bad for me and could make me sick just because there is no word in neither he Quran nor the Hadith saying that a Muslim should not drink syrup?

That is just about food but this is a much more serious matter and it is sad when PAS’s leaders who always claim that they are very Islamic can become more and more liberal.

I am very sad because I could not go to the Palace of Justice for today’s hearing of the “Allah” issue since my father is very, very busy.

I was at the court on August 23, 2013 for the previous hearing.

Anyway I followed the hearing from the internet and my father’s good friend sent us the up to date news from the court.

In Photos: At Malaysian Court of Appeal, Where Are PAS’s Leaders?

Yesterday morning, I was at the Palace of Justice court complex in Putrajaya during the hearing of the “Allah” issue. 

Anyway I have to leave the court before lunch time as my father had recording appointments with TV AlHijrah and after that with Mob TV.

I was so excited to be there, especially this is my first visit to the Palace of Justice court complex. 

But where are the PAS’s leaders who claim themselves as fighters of Islam and more Islamic than others?

Or would they tell us that Uncle Nasha was there on their behalf?

Malaysian Court of Appeal Dismissed Church Application On Allah Issue

I was at the Palace of Justice court complex this morning for the hearing of the “Allah” issue but had to leave early because my father has other important appointments after lunch.

And just now, the Malaysian Court of Appeal rules that the church application to strike out the government’s appeal against a High Court ruling that allowed a Catholic weekly newspaper Herald to use the word “Allah” is dismissed. 

Substantive appeal will be held on September 10, 2013.

The three-person panel lead by Justice Abu Samah Nordin, and including Justices Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim and Rohana Yusuf, were hearing submissions by the Church, Government and the Islamic religious councils from the states of Terengganu, Selangor, Kedah, Johor, Wilayah Persekutuan and Malacca, which were made intervener in the suit.
