Do you think Malaysia should be a secular or an Islamic state? Why?
Malaysia is a secular state as provided for in the Federal Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land. Islam, as provided for in the constitution, is the religion of the federation, with other religions being allowed to be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the federation. A multireligious and multiracial society requires a secular state. (Karpal Singh) Source - Blog/Website: http://www.karpalsingh.net/ksnews
PAS on the other hand wants an Islamic state so that they could exercise Hudud Law. The facts remain, the Hudud Law as intrepreted by PAS was actualy their own creation and it has got nothing to do with Islam.
The brand of Islam that Karpal Singh and Lim Kit Siang feared most out of ignorant is the brand of Islam practiced by PAS and their cohorts.
KOTA BAHARU, Dec 22 (Bernama)
The DAP has made it clear that it is opposed to PAS' pledge to implement hudud laws if the opposition coalition takes over the administration of the country. Its secretary-general, Lim Guan Eng, said the implementation of hudud laws was not included in the Pakatan Rakyat's manifesto in the March 8 general election."The DAP does not agree and definitely opposes the plan," he told reporters here Monday.
PAS Admits Difficulty Getting Consensus On Hudud From Opposition Partners
The admission was made by PAS vice-president Datuk Husam Musa at a press conference, here, today as the three opposition components had signed an agreement in August, stating that any policy change should have a multilateral agreement among them.
"However, PAS will continue with its struggle to implement Hudud law, which is God's law, by explaining to all quarters, including the Pakatan Rakyat component parties, until they are ready to accept the law. (Datuk Husam Musa)
This is a beggary mentality that PAS has developed just for the sake of political ambition, PAS has to go around like a beggar to DAP and PKR to accept its version of Hudud Law.
There is no tolerance on the side of DAP and PKR for PAS Hudud Law and how on earth these TRINITY ever going to settle such issues , only God knows how and when.
It is Opposition Politics which causes Islam to be downgraded and eventually this will lead to anarchy as they fight each other either to accept or reject PAS Hudud Law. This is a result of failure of PAS to protect the dignity of ISLAM. PAS uses and abuses ISLAM to score political points and at the end of the day Hudud Law is like an appetizer put on a plate which was not on the menu for DAP and PKR.
Let us be reminded by the wise words of Martin Luther King, Jr: “We must learn to live together as brothers, or we are going to perish together as fools.”
Here is a piece on real Islam for the express purpose of educating DAP, PKR and PAS.
