I watched the above video with a very heavy heart, for I pity these pathetic human beings for doing what they are doing. Although I dislike the provocative video that seemingly belittled Islam, I find that I had to agree with Mr. Ngeh that time is wasted on this.
I have a group of Christian friends that shared this video once, and when inquired, they said that it’s just a joke. True Christian know who Jesus is and will never be offended by untrue illustrations of Him. Only those who are not so faithful would scream and shout, for they fear the “holy” image of their “God” or “religious leader” gets scattered. Well, They were people of history and will never have the chance to do the things depicted in the videos. What is there to shout about?
As a follower of a “holy” religion, I am amazed how these people in the first video could shout vulgarities and at the same time claim that they are defending a “holy” religion. Do they mean that to defend their “dignity”, they can resort to all sorts of “wrongdoings”? Instead of leading by example, they resort to threatening and venting of hate? What are they defending then? “Holiness” or “gangsterism”? I’m sure true followers of Islam don’t do that.
Screaming at the top of their lungs, they claim that DAP is meddling into the matters of Islam. Is “advising them not to waste time in unnecessary lingering into a mindless video” an act of stepping into the matters of Islam? Is the video so seriously important that a comment of such would cause such important “change” or “influence” into the matters of Islam? If so, I would have no choice but to be amazed by the director’s ability to create such impact over a mindless, non-depth research.
Another question to these groups. What had DAP enforced over Islam that they have been “tolerating” all this while? Has DAP changed Islam? Made any policies that sidelined Islam? Re-written the Laws of Islam? Or have them stopped or disrupted any religious activities of Muslims?
However, I am very glad that there are only a handfull of participants in that mindless “demonstration”. For it showed that the majority of Muslims are not in the same state as these people are. Well, for a defender of Islam like what Perkasa is claiming they are, they should be condemning such vulgarities among their people instead. You can and should correct a non-muslim for making mindless statements as they do not know and it is your responsibility to tell them. But what you should really be concerned with are Muslims who go against the teachings of Islam. For one who know the religion so well as to claim to protect it, such acts are surely unbecoming. Imagine if these people are picked to be religious leaders and teachers one day (since they are so protective of the holy religion). What would they teach to the next generation?
Well, enough about this. I hope everyone can put this behind. Instead of screaming and shouting vulgarities over it, wouldn’t it be more productive to teach the right teachings to clear the doubts of people over it? Wouldn’t this make people respect Islam and Muslims more? By resorting to violence, what image would that give? Good and respectable? Or fearful and lowly?
Now what face of Islam are they showing? Or should I say... Is this any way Islamic at all?
