Jais’ Action Puts Islam in Bad Light

A PAS member today slammed the Selangor Islamic Religious Department’s (Jais) action, lamenting that the authority has put Islam in a bad light by “crashing” a Hindu wedding in Petaling Jaya last Sunday.

Khalid Samad, PAS’ Shah Alam MP, told The Rakyat Post today that Jais should have contacted the Malaysia Hindu Sangam (MHS) and asked for the organisation’s help before it raided the wedding.

He said that Jais could have also discreetly checked with the priest who was hired to conduct the wedding, and call in the bride and her partner thereafter, to discuss the matter.

“Jais must rightfully work hand-in-hand with other religious organisations in matters like this.

“Don’t flex your muscles unnecessarily simply because you have the power, as this smears the religion’s (Islam) image,” Khalid said.

He was commenting on the manner Jais had raided the wedding between a bride who is believed to be Muslim and her partner which was held at a Hindu temple.

On Sunday, it was reported that several officers and policemen had interrupted the wedding following reports that the 32-year-old bride could be a Muslim.
The bride had however, claimed that her father, who had abandoned his family, had registered her as a Muslim but she grew up a Hindu.

Jais officers had then inspected the bride’s Mykad and found her to be defined as a Muslim, after which she was taken away for questioning and released.

“It is definitely wrong… morally wrong,” says Khalid.

“I am pretty sure Jais had received the report way earlier, and they should have started their checks then, instead of crashing her wedding.”

Khalid said that Jais must also start forging good ties with other non-Muslim religious bodies to gauge a better understanding on the faith of others.

“They (Jais) must also learn how to respect the beliefs of others… cannot abuse their powers like this.

“What I want to emphasise, is that Jais, in the eyes of many, represent Islam and if they act like this, which is extreme, it gives a bad image of Islam to non-Muslims.

“They must realise their responsibility and not abuse their powers.”

Khalid also questioned Jais as to what their next course of action will be, if it was found to be true that the bride was never a Muslim.

“What are they going to do then, when they have already caused due damage?

Dakwaan Kosong Hj Hadi: Antara Kebenaran dan Khayalan

Pada 14hb April Hj. Hadi membuat satu 'pendedahan' mengenai sebab sebenar AMANAH ditolak. Kononnya ianya adalah kerana pimpinan AMANAH semasa menjawat jawatan dalam PAS ingin meminda perlembagaan PAS sehingga dikurangkan kuasa Majlis Syura Ulama. Tuduhan tersebut merupakan satu pembohongan yang nyata yang dibuat dengan penuh kesedaran bahawa ianya satu pembohongan! Saya tidak tahu mengapa Hj Hadi kebelakangan ini kerap berbohong.

Sekiranya ianya dianggap bukan satu pembohongan oleh beliau dan beliau benar yakin akan kebenarannya maka ahli-ahli PAS haruslah berwaspada. Kerana ini bermakna bahawa beliau sudah mula mengalami satu keadaan yang tidak dapat membezakan di antara kebenaran dari khayalan. Situasi 'delusional' ini menyebabkan beliau sentiasa dalam keadaan cemas dan menganggap dirinya dan Islam dimusuhi oleh semua, kecuali oleh PAS dan UMNO.

Tuduhan ini sebenarnya bukanlah baharu maka yang dikatakan sebagai 'pendedahan' selepas 3 tahun ini adalah dakwaan …

Kapal Perang Tariq Ibn Ziyad dan Isu Bai’ah Taklik – Kata Penutup

Pada 8 Ramadhan tahun ke-92 Hijrah, tentera-tentera Islam di bawah pimpinan Tariq Ibn Ziyad telah mendarat di bumi Sepanyol selepas merentasi lautan Mediterranean. Sebaik sahaja mendarat, Tariq mengarahkan supaya kapal-kapal tentera Islam ini dibakar. Beliau melakukan ini dengan tujuan supaya tentera-tenteranya menyedari bahawa mereka tiada pilihan lain selain dari meneruskan perjuangan, samada gugur atau mencapai kemenangan.

Bagi yang tidak faham, tindakan Tariq Ibn Ziyad merupakan tindakan yang tidak bertanggung jawab, mencampakkan nyawa tentera-tenteranya dalam bahaya, kejam dan zalim! Bagi yang tidak berilmu, mereka akan pantas menyatakan tindakan itu adalah haram kerana cuba membunuh diri!

Dari sudut strategi peperangan ianya menzahirkan satu tekad yang teramat tinggi agar berjuang berhabis-habisan agar mencapai kemenangan. Tindakan membakar kapal-kapal ini adalah bertujuan untuk menghalang tentera Islam dari memikirkan pilihan untuk berpatah balik, berundur dan lari dari pertempur…

Dilema ADUN PAS Selangor

Kebelakangan ini kita membaca ide yang agak kontroversi dikemukakan berhubung kedudukan para ADUN PAS di negeri Selangor. Ide kontroversi ini mencadangkan supaya mereka melompat keluar PAS dan menyertai Keadilan dan seterusnya bertanding kembali kerusi mereka sebagai incumbent atau penyandang tetapi atas tiket Keadilan. Saya yakin ADUN PAS ini sedang dalam sedikit dilema mengenai cadangan ini.
