This is why the Christian community can vote for the Adenan team with a clear conscience
This article was written to address and correct Stephen Ng’s comment piece of a similar title in MalaysiaKini.
I had expected that Pakatan’s failing campaign in Sarawak would mean that race/religion incitement will soon make an appearance.
Again, I am proven right – and the issue of Christian vs Islam is used once again by Pakatan propaganda to incite hatred and divide Sarawakains along religious lines just to get a few more votes.
The surprise this time is that it took so long before religion is used in Pakatan’s politicking.
The last time around in the Sarawak State elections of 2011, DAP and PKR went to town using the “Kalimah Allah” issue – blaming the Federal Govt of unfairly treating Sarawakians by banning the use of the word Allah for use by non-Muslims.
The respective communities in the whole of Malaysia and Sarawak went up in arms over this issue – causing much anger, division, suspicions and a fraying of ties between religions.
Later on, it was to be found out that this was all for nothing as we were again played by the DAP and PKR politicians and their media agents.
A few year later in the year 2014, pointed out that it was DAP’s Lim Guan Eng himself who in the year 2010, signed into law the Administration of the Religion of Islam (Penang) Enactment which prohibited non-Muslims from using 40 words which included “Allah”.
Under severe pressure then, Lim Guan Eng finally had to back-down and sheepishly admit that religion and the ban on the use of Allah by non-Muslim is a state issue and nothing to do with the Federal Government.
Backing down, the Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng even went on to say he will defend Islam and uphold the fatwa banning the use of the 40 words by non-Muslim.
