My Sinchew/ RUU355

Ubah, or no ubah?

A political observer has told me not to underestimate Tun M. The moment Najib announces to dissolve the Parliament, some of the Umno divisions might just take down the party signs overnight and replace them with those of Bersatu.

Hadi's monster truck

Umno and Islamic leaders in the country must state firmly that the private bill does not conform to the country's conditions and is in no way representative of the Islamic faith. What we want is a super sleek high speed train, not Hadi's antiquated truck.

Be firm against hudud

It has become a norm for political parties to play up issues to achieve their ends, but when it comes to the crucial question of principles that form the basis of our nationhood, all parties must stand united to defend our secular system.

Life in Brunei under hudud

"Many people have been summoned. People will take a picture of you eating and then report you."

Private bill unrelated to hudud: Jamil Khir

"I can't say the bill is totally unrelated to non-Muslims, but it will not deny non-Muslims of their rights."

PAS' shrinking territory

Sure enough PAS will still have its loyal followers but it is inevitable that the party will eventually retreat to its Kelantan base, where it scrambles to keep the state administration intact.

Complete break-up

Losing a few seats is not the end of the game, as we can still recapture them one day. But allowing PAS to expand its political influences unchecked in the country will take us down the irreversible path of lslamization.

Nothing to do with us at all?

It is a form of respect for non-Muslims to abstain from eating in front of Muslims during the fasting month, but this kind of respect is often overinterpreted and distorted. As a result, non-Muslim students are forced to eat stealthily or inside the school toilet.

The political future of the Malays

The by-elections in Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar are decisive battlegrounds for various Malay political forces: Umno, PAS, PKR to the more recent Amanah and Mahathir's movement. The more divisive the Malay society, the more people will look to Umno for guidance.

Muslims' attitude towards hudud

But, non-Muslims are only a minority in this country and can never play a decisive role on such a crucial issue. At the end of the day, it all comes down to the attitude of the majority Muslim population.
