Lightbulb Divisive, unashamed mufti should have retired ages ago

OUTSPOKEN: At the opening of a prayer hall in Chenderoh, Perak Mufti Harussani Zakaria claimed that he once told Najib Razak to allow only Malays to rule the nation. He said, "...Why should we be appointing ministers who are Chinese? There’s no need for Chinese ministers. Just let the Malays rule. We’ll show them.”

Muftis are supposed to promote peace in the land, build bridges within the community and improve race-relations. Will the Perak state government remove Harussani, before he does further damage?

If Harussani were a stand-up comedian, tickets to his show would be sold out long before the event, there would be standing room only for his performances.

If he were a staunch critic of the government and an Opposition supporter, he would have been picked up, interrogated, and allowed to stew in a cell.
Instead Harussani, is allowed to continue with his racist and religious diatribes. Perhaps, the Perak Sultan is surrounded by advisers who are strongly aligned to Umno Baru.

Harussani, the ageing and longest serving state mufti, is long past his sell-by date. He is alleged not to have any professional qualification, not even a university degree and is mocked for his misleading religious edicts and fatwas.

Some may remember him for his "Sex on top of a Camel" statements or the revulsion he caused among football enthusiasts, many of whom are Malay. They slammed him for his fatwa, which prevented them from wearing football jerseys which had the cross, because the symbol represents Christianity.

Many middle aged Malay women damned him for banning the poco-poco dance, and also yoga, which many of them liked to perform. Perhaps, Harussani cannot bear to see people having fun.

Harussani should have retired ages ago. He is divisive, unashamed in his strong support for Umno Baru, and often strays into politics. His views are very provincial and he repels many young Muslims.

When Malaysians celebrated the New Year Eve's on 31 December 2013, he told Malaysiakini, that these people were intent on bringing down the government. He said that these "rebels" should be slaughtered. He claimed that the ensuing bloodshed would be "halal" (permissible) under the Arabic term "bughah".

Sadly, many Malays especially people like Harussani, who are given the authority to preach, have a scant understanding of Islam. "Bughah" is a term which describes an armed revolution.
