What do they really care about?

I have no doubt of PAS’ ruling objective.

Son of PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, rising star Pasir Mas MP Nik Abduh Nik Aziz wrote on his Facebook, “The flood is a reminder to all Muslims to return to Allah’s ways and stay away from His wrath. It necessitates the perseverance of the Kelantan government to implement hudud laws.”

The remarks brought us back to the theocracy era before the Middle Age.

In that era, humans were useful. Human lives were as little as ant’s lives and to survive, they must rely on God’s mercy.

However, how did humans know whether God wanted them to live or die?

Then there was a group of people, who might be kings or priests, said,”My power comes from God and I speak on behalf of God, so you must listen to me.”

They said it was God’s decree when they wanted others to go to war, or serve as slaves.

In short, humans were not allowed to think or doubt as all were God’s arrangement. If you did not follow or dared to oppose, then God would punish you.

I thought that today, a thousand years later, theocracy has become a part of myth. The enlightenment of human history has turned human minds from ignorance into rationality, while human’s ability and values have been retrieved.

Subsequently, humans began to study science, to understand the world. Humans also started to learn humanities, to enhance the meaning of life.
