PAS’ hudud, if implemented, will take non-Muslims on a path of no return, warned MCA Religious Harmony Bureau chairman Ti Lian Ker.

He said though hudud supporters maybe happy and proud that they had fulfilled their divine duty if the laws were applied, he cautioned that in reality crime rate would remain same or worsen.

He further said that under hudud the burden of proof is heavierthus injustice may occur.

He stressed that non-Muslims could be charged for blasphemy by the time they had realised and start challenging the hudud enactments as its supporters would then claim it as “God’s law and that infidels should not challenge divine laws.”

“Once etched in law or practice, PAS’ hudud puts non-Muslims on a path of no-return,” Ti warned in a strongly-worded statement here today.

Lian Ker has said it brilliantly.

A concerned Malaysian has issued a video and a letter pressing for Ikatan Musliman Malaysia (Isma) president Abdullah Zaik Abdullah Rahmanto reveal his true motive for tearing at the fabric of Malaysia’s multi-racial harmony.

Calling himself a Chinese-Muslim, Muhammad Ooi said that Abdullah Zaik’s statement that “Chinese were intruders like the British who came to exploit the Malays”, clashed with his understanding of Isma’s objectives.

Speaking calmly in the short video uploaded on YouTube, Ooi urged Isma’s members to stop Abdullah Zaik and other Isma leaders from making any more such statements, as it hurt people like him and could spark racial conflict.

“What is the benefit to ustaz to make such a statement over and over again?” Ooi said, referring to Abdullah Zaik (right) by his honorific title.

“Isn’t it better that ustaz try to understand Malaysia’s multicultural society and not to make any race feel small or make people in Malaysia feel uncomfortable about their different races?”

Far more important, I believe, has been the reality that Dr Mohd Zudhi Marzuki, the Chief Operating Officer of PAS Research Centre was photographed together with ISMA leaders when ISMA made a bigoted statement to the press about Indians and Chinese being brought into Malaysia by the British to weaken the Malay identity and undermine the community’s birthright to peninsular Malaysia on the pretext of multiculturalism.
