Pembela blames ‘aggressive Christians’ for Muslim siege mentality


By Shazwan Mustafa Kamal
May 07, 2011

File photo of a Pembela protest against the Alkitab at Masjid Negara in Kuala Lumpur after Friday prayers on April 15.

KUALA LUMPUR, May 7 — Islam is under siege in Malaysia because aggressive Christians are determined to convert Muslims who are nonchalant about their faith, several Islamist groups alleged today.

The Muslim Organisations in Defence of Islam (Pembela) accused Christians of strategising an elaborate plan to ensure that more and more Muslims leave the faith, which is illegal in Malaysia.

Pembela president Dr Yusri Mohamad said the Christian community’s demands over the “Allah” issue as well as the Alkitab row proved that they wanted to convince Muslims to embrace Christianity and abandon Islam.

“We are dealing with aggressive, confrontational groups of Christians.
“Their demands over the Alkitab, kalimah Allah are connected to their attempts to spread Christianity... They are using this strategy to tame Muslims, by using terms that we are familiar with in our own religion,” Yusri said today during a Pembela function here.

The syariah lawyer said these are direct attempts to “compromise the position of Islam” as the country’s official religion.

Muslim convert Ann Wan Seng, who was part of a panel today to discuss whether “Islam was under threat?”, said the problem with Muslims in the country was that they did not feel that they were under siege.

“We need to feel threatened; the problem is our people don’t feel anything, even when we are actually being threatened.
“We cannot just blame the Christians for doing their work, we are not doing ours,” he said.

Ann alleged that Petaling Jaya currently serves as a hub to spread Christianity and Muslim apostasy.

“Christians have been doing it in quiet and also in the open, they have been passing leaflets to our Muslims students.

“I have seen it happen in Universiti Malaya. The girls wear tudung but when you take away the tudung, they are wearing a crucifix,” Ann charged.

He claimed that something similar happens in Johor, where the “Malay Christian Association of Singapore” sends people over to Johor to convert Muslims there to Christianity.

Another panellist, Zaid Kamaruddin from Jemaah Islamiyah Malaysia, said Muslims could not afford to rest on their laurels and expect their rights to be protected by the federal constitution or even political parties.
“We cannot rely on political parties or the federal constitution because this can be amended.

“All Muslim groups, NGOs need to be united on common ground,” he said.
Utusan Malaysia had carried out a front-page article today titled
“Malaysia, a Christian country?” (Malaysia, negara Kristian?), based entirely on blog postings by several pro-Umno bloggers.

Angry State your stand on Utusan, Pakatan tells Najib

By Shazwan Mustafa Kamal
May 07, 2011


Nurul Izzah questioned the Utusan article for its lack of proper sources. — File pictures

KUALA LUMPUR, May 7 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak must punish Utusan Malaysia for a report which has incited religious tension, Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders said today.

Opposition lawmakers said the prime minister could no longer afford to maintain an elegant silence over an article which claimed the DAP was conspiring with Christian leaders to take over Putrajaya and abolish Islam as the country’s official religion.

The DAP has denied this and accused the Umno daily of lying.
“If the prime minister fails to sanction Utusan Malaysia’s headlines today, it will prove that he is party to allowing divisiveness to take root in Malaysian society, which goes against any efforts to bring about unity.
“It would appear that we have a leader who has abdicated responsibility to safeguard the nation from extremism, bigotry and false and inciteful propaganda by keeping his silence and feigning ignorance,” said PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar.

Nurul Izzah told The Malaysian Insider the Utusan article itself was dubious, and questioned its lack of proper sources in which it based its information on.

“What is the intention for such a headline, which smacks of cheap unethical journalism at best, especially considering the sources quoted.
“Enough is enough. Malaysians are peace-loving and loyal to the constitution, as are leaders of Pakatan Rakyat. I urge the prime minister to state his stand and answer the call of duty. Malaysians deserve much more than mere movement of the lips to mouth 1 Malaysia,” she said.
The Lembah Pantai MP said the Umno daily must be taken to task to ensure all published materials go through a thorough check before making it available to Malaysians.


Khalid said the fears Utusan was trying to portray were unfounded.

PAS central committee member Khalid Samad echoed his PR colleague’s remarks, saying this was not the first time Najib had failed to act against Utusan.

“If the government stands back and does nothing... this shows a sign of indecisive leadership,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

“The fears that Utusan is trying to portray are unfounded,” the Shah Alam MP stressed.

Utusan had carried a front-page article today titled “Malaysia, a Christian country?” (Malaysia, negara Kristian?), based entirely on blog postings by several pro-Umno bloggers.

The bloggers had charged the DAP with sedition for trying to change the country’s laws to enable a Christian to be prime minister, pointing to a grainy photograph showing what they described to be a secret pact between the DAP and pastors at a hotel in Penang on Wednesday.
The Federal Constitution does not expressly specify race or religious requirements for the position of prime minister. Article 43(2)(a) of the constitution states only that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall appoint as PM a member of Parliament who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the Dewan Rakyat.

In a posting headlined “Agong under threat? DAP wants to make Christianity the official religion of Malaysia?” blogger Marahku (marahku.blogspot.com) accused the DAP of trying to amend the federal constitution to allow a Christian to become prime minister.

“The whole point of changing the official religion is to allow a Christian to become prime minister of this country,” the blogger said.

On bigdogdotcom.wordpress.com, the writer claimed to have received a message that the DAP’s Jeff Ooi had organised a dinner for pastors from Sarawak and overseas at the Red Rock Hotel in Jalan Macalister, Penang.
“Among the activities that night included the 35 pastors taking a group oath. They formed a circle and touched each other’s shoulder and vowed in English to make Christianity the official religion of Malaysia and put a Christian prime minister in office,” the anonymous writer said in his blog under the headline “Making Christianity the official religion?”

He also pointed to the same grainy picture he posted at the top of his blog page, which he had captioned “Partying pastors or pastors doing the party do and vow to have a Christian as Malaysian prime minister”.
The blogger further alleged that the DAP had labelled the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition as an “anti-Christ agent” in the run-up to polls in Sarawak, showing the opposition party was “openly against BN on religious grounds and they are now making it their clarion call, their rabble rousing horn”.

The blogger said it was a seditious and religiously-divisive statement that was never investigated by the police “or at least they did not tell us about any investigations on the matter”.


Mahfuz said Utusan was willing to do anything to get Malay voters.

He called on the authorities to investigate the allegations for sedition, warning that if the authorities failed in their duty the country may be “shattered again”.

The National Evangelical Christian Fellowship (NECF), together with partners Global Day of Prayer, Marketplace Penang and Penang Pastors Fellowship, said the claims against their community were lies, and has already denied the bloggers’ allegations last night.

Similarly, Ooi said the dinner had been organised by the Christian pastors in recognition of the DAP team who had visited them while in Sarawak for the state election and that the prayer sessions — one before dinner and one at the end — were a usual part of their worship, and not a pledge as alleged.

PAS vice-president Datuk Mahfuz Omar said that Utusan’s latest stunt showed that it was willing to do anything to get Malay voters — to the extent of pitting Muslims against Christians.

Utusan is doing this just to get that 5-7 per cent of Malay votes. They are creating DAP-phobia, Chinese-phobia, Christian-phobia, and for what?
“They (Utusan) are the greatest threat to the country,” Mahfuz told The Malaysian Insider.

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/blog-association-cannot-control-members-posts-says-president/

KUALA LUMPUR, May 10 — Blog House Malaysia (BHM) cannot control the contents of its members’ blog postings, its president Syed Akbar Ali has said.

Syed Akbar, who runs his own blog site Outsyed the box (http://syedsoutsidethebox.blogspot.com), said that the blog association only organised programmes and events for its bloggers and did not have any say as to what its members write about.

“Of course I would like all bloggers to write responsibly, but we cannot control the content of blogs ... we are an association of bloggers, we organise programmes, but we are not like an editorial team like in newspapers,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

The BHM president was commenting on recent accusations made by two pro-Umno bloggers that Christian groups are plotting to establish a Christian state with a Christian prime minister as its head.

Utusan Malaysia carried a front-page article on Saturday claiming the DAP was conspiring with Christian leaders to take over Putrajaya and abolish Islam as the country’s official religion.

The report, based on unsubstantiated blog postings by several pro-Umno bloggers, had charged the DAP with sedition for allegedly trying to change the country’s laws to allow a Christian prime minister, pointing to a grainy photograph showing what they described as a secret pact between the opposition party and pastors at a hotel in Penang on Wednesday.

One of the bloggers — Zakhir Mohamad (http://bigdogdotcom.wordpress.com) — is treasurer of BHM.

“The police are investigating the matter, let them do their job,” Syed Akbar said.

But he also said all parties need to be careful before coming out with anything which may cause tension between the different races in the country.

“From a personal viewpoint, I stand by what the prime minister said. You must see the situation in the country ... when you say or do things, you have to be careful of the consequences.

“It’s like standing in the cinema and shouting fire, fire,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

Syed Akbar said, however, that Zakhir’s claims about a Christian conspiracy were not the first, and that Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP Zulkifli Noordin had raised a similar issue recently.

According to an Utusan report yesterday, Zulkifli had said that there were attempts by other religious groups to usurp Islam’s position in the country.

The lawmaker alleged that the movement was based on a 14-point demand letter sent by opposition leaders to the Interfaith council (IFC).

“I was made to understand that among the things they are fighting for is to categorise youths below the age of 18 as “religion-less” and that they may choose what religion they like when they reach that age,” Zulkifli was quoted by the Malay daily as saying.

Despite repeated denials by Christian groups and the DAP, Zakhir has insisted that action be taken against “subversive” Christian groups.

“It is time that action be taken against this movement which may be subversive and a threat when the country’s majority-race Malays become angry. If this is true, proper action must be taken,” said Zakhir in a blog posting last night.

But he refused to comment any further when contacted by The Malaysian Insider.

“Right now, I will only speak to the police ... I cannot say anything even if I want to. Police reports have been lodged and this is now under police investigation.

“I’ll be able to comment once the investigation is completed,” Zakhir said.

The National Evangelical Christian Fellowship (NECF), together with partners Global Day of Prayer, Marketplace Penang and Penang Pastors Fellowship, said the claims against their community were lies, and it has refuted the bloggers’ allegations.

Similarly, DAP leaders have denied the report and have accused Utusan of lying and have lodged police reports over the matter.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has called for calm and asked for the matter to be investigated first before drawing any conclusions.

Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution only states that “Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.”

Likewise, Article 43(2)(a) of the constitution states “the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall appoint as Perdana Menteri (Prime Minister) to preside over the Cabinet a member of the House of Representatives who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of that House”.

Columnists :: Down 2 Earth - Terence Fernandez ( Every Tuesday & Friday )

At what cost polls victory?

Terence Fernandez

HISTORY is filled with questionable theories and outright lies. Hitler concocted and exaggerated some facts about the Jews to justify his bid to eliminate the race. The Khmer Rouge drummed into the heads of recruits and peasants that their poverty was due to the greed of the ruling elite and educated class.

And as how lies go, the more you repeat it, the distinction between fact and fiction becomes blurred.

This is a game that has been played time and again by politicians and warring parties and it is no different today.

The verdict is still out on the veracity of Saturday’s front page of a Bahasa Malaysia daily. Although one questions the good sense of the reporters and their editors who would front-page a story totally based on blogs. One can laugh off the report as a case of very bad judgment call – something for the “don’ts of reporting” in a journalism course.

But following the scenes of demonstrators in Penang and listening to the words of those entrusted to maintain civility; my sentiment has shifted from amusement to trepidation.

So on Sunday I sent this text message to a senior Umno leader: “U seriously can’t believe the front page yesterday, can U?? It flies in d face of logic. It’s dangerous! So why is Umno Youth demonstrating? U want to kill DAP, don’t do it at d expense of d Christian community. The report was based on blog postings! If I were 2 write stories based on blogs, theSunwould be having sensational Page 1 stories everyday!”

His response: “I understand, pls get my statement today. I said it’s not proven to be true. But the ground is rumbling and angry. I will see what I can do.”

When the country is in crisis-mode, especially when it is an issue as touchy as religion and ethnic relations, one would expect our leaders to take the path of moderation to ensure peace and stability.

Unfortunately, instead of calling for cool heads to prevail, the home minister and his counterpart from the Information Communication and Culture Ministry by their statements, risk fanning the flames that are being exploited by certain parties.

Judging from their reaction to reporters’ queries, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim have put on their politicians’ hats instead of cabinet minister.

“This type of movement can be deemed as incitement and can put the whole country in jeopardy,” Hishammuddin told reporters in Besut right after posing for photographs showing the 1Malaysia symbol with Umno and MCA leaders.

Rais added: “The move by certain quarters in questioning Islam as the country’s official religion is considered as breaking away from the social norm and this had never been done before.”

So it seems that while Bukit Aman is yet to even shift into second gear in its investigation, our two leaders seem to have made up their mind over the events in Penang on Saturday.

But one does take a bit of comfort from the home minister who has since said that the authorities will investigate without fear or favour.

At the same time, one is reminded of the home minister’s statement on Dec 16, 2009 regarding bloggers: “There is no credibility in some of their postings while articles are fabricated and sensationalised in an attempt to gain popularity.

“Local journalists adhered to ethics but these bloggers did not, and this was what differentiated the journalists from these bloggers.”

While one does not want to go down the same road and make up one’s mind before the police had conducted their investigations, what is important is that everyone distances themselves from the inflammatory slant of the article.

Everyone, including the two ministers should have taken the cue from their boss, the prime minister who appealed for calm and a thorough investigation.

Perhaps some crackpot at an attempt at humour would have made a snide remark at the gathering of Christians in Penang. This could have prompted a “misunderstanding”. And for those ignorant of the different rites and practices of the various Christian denominations, the prayer circle could also be interpreted as an “oath taking ceremony”.

For supporters of the establishment, it would not be out of sync for them to be cautious of the political leanings of the Christian community, following the many contentious issues that brought the community and the government to loggerheads, and the political rhetoric that are sometimes imbued in the weekly sermon.

Unfortunately, as the law of probabilities goes, the daily in question has had a penchant for the controversial and seditious – partly because it has been able to get away with it, while other newspapers are regularly reminded of the consequences of stepping out of line.

If there are cool and mature heads out there, now is the time to stand up and say “no” to those who chose to divide and conquer instead of winning the hearts and minds of all Malaysians.


Terence hopes the rules of ethical journalism will continue to be the benchmark of the media. Feedback: terence@thesundaily.com

Why need to meet christians n not tell off Utusan
In front of Utusan says one thing in front of christians says something else.


http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/pm-to-meet-church-leaders-amid-christian-malaysia-row/

KUALA LUMPUR, May 11 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will meet a select group of church leaders for lunch in Putrajaya tomorrow, after the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) government took flak over reports of a presumed plot by Christians to usurp Islam as Malaysia’s main creed.

Bishop Ng Moon Hing, who heads the Christian Federation of Malaysia (CFM), confirmed he received the invitation from the Prime Minister’s Office last week and will be attending the closed-door lunch meeting with representatives from the Roman Catholic Church, the Council of Churches Malaysia (CCM) and the National Evangelical Christian Fellowship (NECF).

“Utusan will be just one of the many one-off things that will be raised,” Ng told with The Malaysian Insider.

Blogger maintains pastors prayed for Christian PM

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/blogger-maintains-pastors-prayed-for-christian-pm/

KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 — The blogger Big Dog has continued to insist that pastors had pledged to install a Christian prime minister even after touching off angry protests that forced Datuk Seri Najib Razak to sit down today to clear the air with church leaders.

Pro-Umno blogger Zakhir Mohamad’s initial Christian Malaysia posting last week, suggesting the pastors and the opposition DAP were engaged in a plot to usurp Islam’s position, had been reported in Utusan Malaysia, a newspaper owned by Najib’s party.

But despite providing no evidence, Zakhir said yesterday in his latest posting that “what was maintained as an issue was the pastors’ pledge to bring a Christian prime minister to Malaysia and perhaps turn Christianity into an official religion.”

Church leaders, the DAP, and even some pro-Umno bloggers have criticised Utusan Malaysia and Big Dog for the unsubstantiated allegation.

A number of police reports have also been made to demand the authorities investigate Utusan Malaysia and the blogger for criminal acts.

Prime Minister Najib is also meeting Christian leaders in Putrajaya today in an attempt to soothe ties between the government and Christians who remain suspicious of the Barisan Nasional (BN) administration after the recent Alkitab Malay Bible seizures.

With the PM now drawing flak, a number of other pro-Umno bloggers have started attacking Zakhir while Shamsul Yunos, who had also made the initial allegations in his blog marahku.blogspot.com, appears to have removed the entire contents of his blog.

But Zakhir continued to highlight the allegations in his latest posting yesterday evening.

He said that the pastors should have prayed that the prime minister be godly irrespective of his religion.

“Surely as God-fearing people, they should have done this instead of blatantly dismissing the population in majority, who are obviously Malay Muslims happy with the present arrangement,” he wrote.

Utusan Malaysia carried a front-page article on Saturday, headlined “Kristian agama rasmi?” (Christianity the official religion?), claiming the DAP was conspiring with Christian leaders to take over Putrajaya and abolish Islam as the religion of the federation.

The report in the Umno-owned daily was based entirely on the unsubstantiated blog postings by pro-Umno bloggers like Zakhir.

Christian groups and the DAP have repeatedly denied the allegation, and have slammed the Umno daily for printing “dangerous lies.”

Some pro-Umno bloggers have moved to discredit Zakhir, claiming that he has links to anti-BN figures such as Raja Petra Kamarudin and Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi.

Influential Umno blogger Papa Gomo criticised Zakhir for being “arrogant”, “resulting in other Umno bloggers being punished.”

He also implied that Zakhir was not loyal to Umno president Najib.

In his blog post yesterday, Papa Gomo referenced a claim by Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra that Zakhir was involved in a meeting to bring down the prime minister by implicating him in the 2006 murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shariibuu.

He called for Zakhir to be arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA) and this was supported by anti-Pakatan Rakyat blog Gelombang Wangsa Maju (GWM).

GWM said that Zakhir was a close friend of Ooi, who was also a well-known blogger before running for elections on a DAP ticket in the 2008 general election.

The blog accused Zakhir of being involved in a project with Ooi in the DAP-held state of Penang.

It is all about maintaining power by whatever means.

Much of the public has already realised how crooked our leaders have been n to make sure the support from the Malays are maintained for UMNO they have to stir up some emotion.

For those who have not much accessibility to alternate medias, this is a good trick that Malays are under threat from the christian group.

Najib must stop Perkasa now’

Michael Kaung | May 12, 2011

Perkasa's wild accusation and allegations against Malaysian Christians are upsetting the communities in Sabah and Sarawak.

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah DAP is alarmed that the government has allowed peninsula-based pressure group Perkasa to promote Malay hegemony through hostility with other races in the country

Sabahans are watching with trepidation the claims and counterclaims over ‘special rights’ in respect of the country’s constitution and the politicising of religion, said state party assistant secretary Junz Wong.

He said that Perkasa’s interpretation that the post of Prime Minister as ‘reserved only for a Malay-Muslim’ showed their lack of understanding of the constitution.

He pointed out that Article 43(2)(a) of the Federal Constitution has clearly stated that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall appoint as Prime Minister a member of Parliament who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Dewan Rakyat.

Wong believes Perkasa is mischievously playing up the issue and expressed his concern that such double-standards are creeping into Malaysian society.

He wants Perkasa to “stop politicising religions to influence the people sentiments and disrupt the peace and harmony which has long been enjoyed by Malaysians”.

Wong, who is also Sabah DAP Youth wing chief, said the accusation and allegations thrown at Malaysian Christians by Perkasa was disturbing bearing in mind the large number of Christians in Sabah and Sarawak.

He urged Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to not merely talk about all parties needing to show restraint and moderation but to “quickly deal with the issue before it gets out of control”.

“To me, Perkasa’s antics and actions of late are directly at loggerhead with Najib’s 1Malaysia,” he said, adding that fishing for votes from the Malays using Perkasa’s strategy will not work in a globalised and borderless world.

“Malaysians regardless of our skin colour, religion and racial background need each other to advance and compete with the world.

“The gloomy economy should be our main priority because poverty is a social problem which can create an unstable nation.

“Poverty is blind to our race and religious affiliation,” Wong added.
