Of Lim Guan Eng, the malay bigots and Maulidur Rasul

Well, hello there guys. I guess it’s not too late for me to wish Gong Xi Fa Chai to all Malaysians. It’s a very prosperous year of the tiger and this tiger is very raged of the latest issue of the cancellation of the annual Maulidur Rasul march in Penang. The alleged perpetrator defendant here is Lim Guan Eng and well as usual the accusers on the side of prosecutor are the malay bigots led by UMNO.

Ek? What did u say? Let’s go to the street and demand resignation from LGE?Wait a minute. I’m not like you racist malay bigots who demonstrate on everything that’s deemed insulting for you in your little mind. And no, I will not go parade a pig’s head resembling LGE’s head also. It’s disgusting and I will not go for a demonstration and protest unless for a very legit reason and for a right cause.

No guys im not raged at LGE.I wanna make it clear that im on the side of the defendant. And as a volunteer amateur acting lawyer in the web space here I will defend him with my own personal views on this matter. First read article titled "Isu Perarakan Maulidur Rasul di Pulau Pinang" by Khairy "babi negara" Jamaluddin”.

Read at the scanned letters of from penang SUK office that clearly says "perarakan dibatalkan dan DITERUSKAN dgn Majlis Perhimpunan Ummah". Can’t u guys read weh? Try to read for goodness sake! It’s elementary. These malay bigots are clearly making an issue about this. Ok fine, LGE cancel the march. It’s clear. But what the penang government did instead is to replace the event with another event to commemorate the birth of our beloved prophet Muhammad PBUH. I want to ask these guys again. What’s wrong with that? Again, read the tentative of the programme and you’ll find that it goes on to a forum where I assume the topic will be regarding Maulidur Rasul.

Well, I would personally choose to be in a cool aircond hall for a forum rather than marching on a freaking hot day (yesterdays report 36 degrees), sweating in my baju melayu. You malay bigots can go do wat you minorities small brains wanna do. Tunjukkan cinta pada nabi konon. How irrational thinking can lead to irrational actions. Even Kelantan have their own way of celebrating Maulidur Rasul. Check it here.

This has led me thinking, which one is better to celebrate Maulidur Rasul? Marching by contingents while salawat loudly, wearing uniquely decorated baju melayu and banners, or replace all that with another programme which has ceramah etc. At the end of the day, what really come to mind for the march participants is which contingent is the best dressed, best banners or the best march. Where is the true spirit of commemorating the prophets birthday? I say zilch, nil, zero. Malays are totally into these kind of ritual that it has become like an “akidah” or “kewajipan” for them to do, where actually these kind of things are not necessary and leads to “bidaah” in Islam which means redundant. They want to show that they are true and better muslims than others by safeguarding these rituals.

But then again, I didn’t oppose the way we have been celebrating Maulidur Rasul by marching and all. At least, it shows that there is an event going on and for all its worth, it does shows and in a way an expressed gratitude and love to our prophet. At least some of the events going on will be aired live on the telly and maybe ignorant guys like me will at least come across the channel and realize its Maulidur Rasul. In any way, you are showing your love to the prophet Muhammad PBUH.

Let’s go back to the real issue here. The malay bigots are defaming LGE anti Islam for cancelling the march. What they missed is that LGE cancel the march to proceed with another event. But did he ban the march? No he did not. Did he issue a letter stating that anyone who participates in a march commemorating the prophet Muhammad’s PBUH birthday will be arrested? NO HE DID NOT. Well with that guys, I rest my case.

as always... BN would do anything to blow up a non-issue, especially when it comes to religion... and these Malays, being "born" into a religion they probably don't really understand are easy targets...

Macam penting sangat berarak tu... xder pun dalam hadith suruh kita berarak... on the other hand, even the DATES of the prophet's birthday pun are subjected to arguments... so why are all the other dates clearly recorded but not the prophet's birthday? simple... the cliché answer "ada hikmah" is probably the most accurate... God doesn't want us to make a big fuss out of a "birthday". remember what happened to Jesus's?

by definition, LGE is probably a better Muslim than the people who condemn him... which is really depressing if you think about it... *sighs*

There is underlying issue behind the 'replacing march with some event in the air-conditioned hall'..and the issue is pretty serious to the Malay.

I'm not into the idea of marching in the hot weather either. I am looking at it this way..

mula2 tak bagi berarak..or in other words, not to do your religious activity in, kick them into a hall..sorok skit..
then what..?tak bagi langsung..or do it in other hall outside Penang I would assume..alang2 pindah skali la pegi negeri lain..
Orang melayu in Penang dah kena sepak2 je..

what's important now,make sure kita berduit, making loads of money..then we have power.
Tapi tu la yg menyampahnye..those Malay yg ada duit..jual org sendiri..including Khairy.
