PRK Sungai Limau: Siapa Yang Menipu, Haji Baharom Atau Mahfuz Omar?

Credit to The Unspinners

Datuk Seri Jamil Khir’s father praying for PAS to win in the coming PRK Sungai Limau?

Or did PAS’s leader Mahfuz Omar lying again?

Please listen to this video:

Now, please listen to another video:

Haji Baharom is Datuk Seri Jamil Khir’s father and he is a member of PAS.

Anyway, it is very interesting when he said that even though he is a member of PAS, that doesn’t means he can’t vote for UMNO.

So who tried to spin the story?

Congratulations JAKIM on Khutbah Jumaat, ‘Menangani Konsep Kebebasan’

Congratulations to  Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) for today’s Khutbah Jummat with the title, ‘Menangani Konsep Kebebasan’. It was a very good khutbah about Human Rights and freedom. The Khatib also spoke about Universal Periodic Review (UPR), United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) demands and COMANGO (Coalition of Malaysian Non-Governmental Organisations).

The UPR process is getting closer. As what was said by the Khatib, we must not accept the UNHRC demands that wanted Malaysia to legitimise LGBTIQ, abolishing some part of the Syariah Law and others that are against the Malaysian Federal Constitution. 

Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution stated that, “Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation”. So, as Islam is the religion of the Malaysia, we cannot accept total freedom, in fact total freedom is bad for us. That is why every country has rules that must be obeyed by everybody in the country including the tourists and visitors from other countries.

This proves that COMANGO, does not represent Malaysian Muslims. COMANGO leaders are not Muslim, so how could they represent the Muslims on Islamic issues? COMANGO is lying when it claims that it represent most Malaysian. And after I read their reports, I know that they are lying about the situation in Malaysia and accusing the Malaysian government for things that are not true.

After all, most of the COMANGO leaders are Malaysian opposition parties’ DAP and PKR leaders who would blame the government for every thing that they can ever imagine.
