The “Allah” stand…

audie61 have been receiving many questions on where we stand on the “banning of usage of Allah on the Catholic Newspaper Herald”. We stayed focussed and did not want to be caught in a “hail of bullets” and we know that there given the appropriate time the Chief Minister would make his stand.

He did that also during the 2010 Barisan Nasional Convention in Kuala Lumpur where he spoke,”When I travel to the longhouses, I’d just look for a Muslim cook from the city and they (the longhouse folks) would buy the food and even buy praying mats for me to pray in one of their rooms.

I was privileged to hear from 2 Menteri Besars from the Peninsula who said,”CM Taib speaks the truth and they were impressed with his words on religious tolerance in Sarawak.”

That was the day which made me saluted CM Taib for his “no nonsence approach to people who thinks they can use religion to gain political mileage especially when it comes to Sarawak”

Today we extract this from the internet portal and this is no different from 2010 which we heard at MCA’s hall,” The Allah issue between Muslims and Christians in Peninsular Malaysia does not affect Sarawakians because they are a tolerant people, said Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

To us (people in Sarawak) there is no issue. We have lived with people of different races and different religions for many decades, even before Malaysia,” Taib said in his first public statement on the issue since the Court of Appeal ruled last Monday that the word Allah could not be used by the Catholic weekly, Herald.

Taib declared the ruling was not binding on Sabah and Sarawak.

 

“We cannot alter the status quo in Sarawak,” Taib said when asked about Sarawak’s stand after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak opened the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) convention today.

Taib said the use of the word was not a problem in the state as the “spirit of tolerance” among Sarawakians is high, one of the features of multi-racial Sarawak which made it a bedrock of stability and harmony.

“When I travel to the longhouses, I’d just look for a Muslim cook from the city and they (the longhouse folks) would buy the food and even buy praying mats for me to pray in one of their rooms.

“This is quite natural with us in dealing with people of different religions.

“I myself came from a mission school and it never bothered me when other people made the sign of the cross,” he said, referring to a Christian practice.

“It’s because it’s their religion, expressing their respect for the Almighty. I can understand it.”

Taib said he would bow and offer his own prayers the Muslim way when his Christian friends made the sign of the cross in their prayers.

“The Chinese would probably do it their way. The intention is the same.

“It’s all praying to the superior being which we believe is the Creator of this world.”

“It’s this kind of spirit we have in Sarawak,” Taib said, stressing again that it is not the thorny issue that is in the peninsula.

“The Ibans, the Malays, the Chinese have shown their respect for other religions and cultures even before Malaysia.

“When we came to Malaysia, we carried this with us and it has become one of the features of Sarawak.”

In 2010, Taib had also spoken out against an attempt to curb Bahasa Malaysia bibles from being freely brought into the state.

He described the order to stamp the Bahasa Malaysia bibles with serial numbers by the Home Ministry as a “stupid idea” that should not be applied to Sarawak.

He had also called the strictures on the Al-Kitab nonsense.

Yesterday, Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail reiterated the Court of Appeal decision was confined to the Bahasa Malaysia section of the Herald.

He said the court held that the Al-Kitab and the Herald are two publications of an entirely different character.

“The Al-Kitab is the Malay version of the Bible and meant for Christians and used in churches whereas the Herald is a newspaper which is also accessible online and can be read by Muslims and non-Muslims.”

Abdul Gani added that the court stated the permission given by the home minister for the printing and publication of the Al-Kitab, in which the word Allah appears, therefore cannot be treated in the same manner as with the Herald. – October 21, 2013.

PAS HADI SAID THIS..”.CAWAT..??”

cawatSarawakians dont have short memories. What happen at BATANG AI by elections? What was said by the President of PAS? Let’s show them what we Sarawakians will do to PAS.

GIVE THEM AN EGG

TodayPAS president Abdul Hadi Awang  named the party’s candidates for seven constituencies in Sarawak, but three of the MP seats are also being claimed by Pakatan Rakyat partners DAP and PKR.

The seven seats are 1. Kota Samarahan 2.Sibuti 3.Igan 4.Batang sadong 5. Tanjung Manis 6. Julau 7.Mukah

Surely this is on a collision course with DAP and PKR and Baru Bian has this to say,”I will find out from Kuala Lumpur. I am shocked that I have not been informed of the decision,”

No Need lah Baru Bian you must remember what PAS President Hadi said in Batang Ai by elections.

Lets refresh you,”Semua pilihanraya kecil sebelum ini keputusannya memihak kepada kita. Cuma di Batang Ai sahaja kita kalah sebab mereka ini tidak reti undi, pakai cawat lagi. Saya bukan nak hina tetapi tempat yang pakai molek, undi PAS.”

DOES PAS CARE FOR DAP OR PKR SARAWAK..???

“Chinese Gold Can ..?”

NOT EVERYTHING THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD.

How very true as this athlete from China found out only through her twin daughters. They raised suspicions after finding that parts of her prize won were broken and that was the “PURE GOLD CAN”

The gold can was awarded to each athlete that won the Barcelona gold in 1992 and they was supposedly made of pure gold worth 200 grammes.The company that gave the pure gold can was the biggest soft drink company Jianlibao Group.

The firm established in 1984 has since plunged into a crisis in 2005,when poor management and stiff competition from international rivals like Coca-Cola and Pepsi led to a total debt of more than one billion yuan.(RM$490 mil)

The poor athlete.Many are out there too..

What has she done besides getting legal help.? She needs to tell the whole world that there exists this sort of unscrupulous people/companies and we need to be very careful of all the things which are promised.

Justs remember don’t be fooled by FOOLS GLITTERING GOLD. In this technological savvy world there are many who are getting fooled unknowingly and we need to be on guard all the time. No matter how much lessons  we go through its GREED that always have the better of us.

LETS JUST NOT BE CAUGHT….    

“Facebook,Tweets,Blogs..No,No ..In China..?”

Gosh..!! My business partner told me last weekend now not only Facebook and twitter “ tweets” are not available in China “AT THIS MOMENT OF TIME” but also wordpress and blogspot. They have their own VERSIONS which are similar but controlled.

Could this aricle which is published be own of their reasons.

 Why are the Chinese authorities so concerned?

The Chinese Government is well aware of the implications and the power of the social media. They have strict laws and reservations on the internet and has a “HAWKEYE” on whoever are creating some sort of dissenting voices against the Government. They have seen the ARAB SPRING and the government has taken steps earlier to minimise the risks.

China’s economical and financial muscle is thriving at a speed which is Phenomenal but there is a clapdown on the usage of “outsider blogs” which many feels that they have a ‘divine right to do so”

IT”S THEIR COUNTRY RIGHT….
