DAP-led Pakatan Harapan has been trying to paint a picture for Malays that life in Malaysia with a Barisan Nasional government was bad for social stability and for the economic growth of the nation.
Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan says that PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang’s private member’s bill (Act 355) was bad for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
While Muslims in the opposition have a say rightly or wrongly in Act 355, it is of no concern for non-Muslims; unless they like Kit Siang also see themselves as the protectors of the Malays.
Non-Muslims getting involved in Act 355 issue is like Muslims getting involved with the personal aspects of the other beliefs in Malaysia.
Rule of thumb, if it does not bother you; why are you bothered.
It does seem that (as someone has written) there are those who want a watered down Islam in Malaysia that was accepting of the most deviant forms of behaviour all in the name of tolerance.
However, both Qur’an and Bible provide an account of what happened to Sodom and the surrounding towns when people became tolerant of certain types of behaviour.
The DAP, which wants to win big in the coming general election (GE14), can only achieve its dreams if Umno and Barisan candidates lose; so DAP must make sure that Umno supporters will not vote for Umno.
In general, the so-called progressive Malays such as the Malays supporting LGBT rights, pluralism of religion, liberalism and those who are against the amendment of Act 355 will not vote for Umno; as they feel that Umno’s approach to Islamic matters was too conservative and not progressive.
While PAS president Hadi’s private member’s bill does not specifically cover the type of behaviour suggested above, it does serve as a wake-up call or an alarm to where things might lead, if no one sounds the alarm.
Now it is up to Muslims to decide and vote based on what is best for Muslims here in Malaysia.
Kit Siang and his DAP-led Pakatan collectively should continue to spend their time manufacturing more lies against Umno, Barisan and PAS as those lies provided the people with an even clearer picture of what life would be like under a DAP-Pakatan government.
One would be hard pressed to bring anything constructive to mind that came from DAP-led Pakatan over time of its existence.
The main item that the opposition seems to quarterly recycle was the abolishing of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
On occasion, there is the mention of tools or some other goodies that Pakatan believed the people to bite on to.
What Pakatan does not do is acknowledge the investments that Prime Minister Najib Razak is bringing to Malaysia.
Okay so you are not supposed to acknowledge your opponent’s success, but these successes are for Malaysia; politics aside, the opposition should see the positive impact (like BR1M) the various investments meant for the Malaysians.
Or is it more important for Malaysia to fail economically so that the DAP-led Pakatan win?
Where is the patriotism in that?
That is like burning down the house in order to claim the land and victory; occupants be damned.
If there is a silver lining in all nonsense that Kit Siang and his DAP-led Pakatan do it is this; the more they talk the more the people can see they have absolutely nothing to offer in terms of growth and stability for the nation! – The Malaysian Observer Blog
