Imagine receiving an sms,”Sarawak mosque under attacked.Comment..??” Can you tell me how..? I was fuming mad and really aggitated and then cooled down and thought rationally with our audie61 crew. So here goes..
Think outside the Box..We have heard so many views from all religious scholars, political divides,Muslim and christian NGOs and it seems everyone is sensitive and only are putting their foot further in to aggravate the already fragile situation. To us in Sarawak after interviewing many Christians and Muslim Brothers and also after Nazri’s statement we thought O.K. a solution…. is at hand.
- However judging from this article in Malaysiakini and picking up the points it seems the tension has risen up to another notch.
- PAS vice-president Mahfuz Omar -He said that not only is there now two sets of rules, the minister should not be making pronouncements since the court process which sparked the controversy is still pending.
- Herald Editor Lawrence Andrew he said the matter is currently being dealt with in court and all parties should wait for the outcome and Nazri recent pronouncements may confuse the public.
- DAP veteran lawmaker Lim Kit Siang- criticised Nazri’s pronouncement because it showed that cabinet had already decided on the matter, while at the same time, calling for inter-faith dialogues to seek a solution. He adds that the ‘two rules’ for the use of the term ‘Allah’ makes a “total mockery” of the government’s 1Malaysia campaign.
Lets get a grip of the whole situation and all sides please call a TRUCE Enough of using religion to score poltical points or mileage. audie61 says,” GOD for one does not want the human kind to quarrel over how he wants to be called. We as Malaysians are better of than that and we do not want to be looked down by the World community.”
If the solution is to be found it is up to the editor to come up with a solution of PRINTING THE BAHASA MALAYSIA VERSION EXCLUSIVELY JUSTS FOR EAST MALAYSIA AND PRINTED IN SARAWAK OR SABAH. BETTER STILL FORGET ABOUT THE BAHASA MALAYSIA VERSION. WE IN SARAWAK AND SABAH KNOW HOW TO SPEAK AND READ ENGLISH AS WE WERE COLONISED BY THE BRITISH. DO WE NEED TO SAY MORE..?????
WE in Sarawak do business alongside and eat together with our Muslim Brothers and we do not have religious, racial,skin,colour tensions. WE IN SARAWAK INTEND TO KEEP IT THAT WAY as I cant speak for my Sabah friends.
IF the Editor of the catholic news wants to see me I do not mind and I will tell him in so many words…Retreat and you will all be wiser because of it…Also dont ever think that we need the Herald to tell us about our FAITH..We are stronger than that and do not use us Sarawakians or Sabahans to push for your Bahasa Malaysia Version. Please………we are all up to our noses with all the politicsed views as this is a religious matter. Also dont think we are Apple Polishing Nazri. He can also call me …
Dont also tell me next that GOD will not forgive me as I have blaspheme or better still kick me out of the Catholic Church.
DO NOT USE THE PEOPLE OF SARAWAK AND SABAH TO FIGHT FOR THE HERALD IN BAHASA MALAYSIA as an EXCUSE.
