One of the main provocateurs of Malaysian politics, who would provoke people and then play innocent – Lim Kit Siang has crossed the Rubicon and disrespecting one of the muslims’ rites which is the Friday sermon. Lim Kit Siang had lambasted a friday sermon which had mentioned a verse of the Quran, as the causes of public disharmony between races.
The Quranic verse (Al Baqarah: 120) said;
And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion. Say, “Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance.” If you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah no protector or helper.
Orang-orang Yahudi dan Nasrani tidak sekali-kali akan bersetuju atau suka kepadamu (wahai Muhammad) sehingga engkau menurut ugama mereka (yang telah terpesong itu). Katakanlah (kepada mereka): “Sesungguhnya petunjuk Allah (ugama Islam itulah petunjuk yang benar”. Dan demi sesungguhnya jika engkau menurut kehendak hawa nafsu mereka sesudah datangnya (wahyu yang memberi) pengetahuan kepadamu (tentang kebenaran), maka tiadalah engkau akan peroleh dari Allah (sesuatupun) yang dapat mengawal dan memberi pertolongan kepada mu.
In the context of Malaysia, this verse has been read and known by muslims for hundreds of years and it has been mentioned in friday sermons in Malaysia for decades. And since independence, there was no problem among the muslims to live and accept people of other religions to co-exist with them. Muslims do not care much about how the Christians, buddhists, hindus lead their lives. Unless if Islam is transgressed and attacked, muslims are ever so ready to live other religions in peace.
We are not sure what religion Lim Kit Siang profess but the fact that he suddenly attacked a Quranic verse and said that it is the sole cause of racial and religious friction will certainly provoke some emotions by the muslims. And just like Teresa Kok, there is no doubt that Lim Kit Siang will play victim if people begin to chastise him.
Hannah Yeoh and Teresa Kok, we hear them as devout Christians, must now tell Lim Kit Siang to keep his mouth shut otherwise sensitivities will be infringed and emotions will run high. And now we have a PKR leader scolding JAKIM for the friday sermon.
Darrell Leiking wants JAKIM to prove that indeed Christians want muslims to embrace Christianity (according to the verse). It is as if Darrell is personally slighted by the verse.
“Siapa makan cili dia terasa pedas”.
Christian leaders of this country must not insult other people’s religion this way. When you begin to question other people’s beliefs and worse, trying to degrade them as the source of disunity (when it is not), then be prepared to be questioned on your own beliefs. Below are statements made questioning Christianity.
This sums things up
Makes no sense?
Contradictions with moral values
Many will burn in a Christian hell for this
KKK were devout Christians
The Vatican Church was a strong supporter of the Nazi
Another fact that Christians and the Nazi were friends
That’s all you can have for dinner
No money, no religion
Most Christian church leaders are rich people
Preach all you want.
From the bible
Why would females even be a Christian?
That is just about right
Blinded and in denial
What it really is..
