Teach non-Muslims to reject free Qurans ‘politely’, interfaith body told

Rejecting the da’awa could hurt the feelings of righteous believers. That must not be allowed  in Malaysia.

The proselytisation of non-Islamic religions to Muslims is an offence in Malaysia, but not vice-versa.

Teach non-Muslims to reject free Qurans ‘politely’, interfaith body told 

MRM president Firdaus Wong Wai Hung criticised MCCBCHST’s recent outcry over the free Quran project mooted by the Islamic Information and Services (IIS) Foundation. — Picture by Choo Choy MayMRM president Firdaus Wong Wai Hung criticised MCCBCHST’s recent outcry over the free Quran project mooted by the Islamic Information and Services (IIS) Foundation. — Picture by Choo Choy MayKUALA LUMPUR, March 1 — Despite denying any hand behind the alleged distribution of free Qurans to non-Muslims, an Islamic evangelical group said non-believers should be taught to politely reject the holy texts instead of responding aggressively.

The Multiracial Reverted Muslims (MRM) said the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST), the country’s largest interfaith body, should not have taken such a combative stance when reacting to the free Quran project by another Muslim group.

Instead, the MCCBCHST should have focused on mending strained ties between Muslims and non-Muslims here, and encouraging the latter community to learn more about Islam and issues pertaining to the religion, MRM president Firdaus Wong Wai Hung said.

“My suggestion is that the council should instead advise the non-Muslims and the public that they should talk to each other politely, even if say they do not want it (Quran).

“It’s fine if they do not want the holy book, but they should understand the religion,” he told Malay Mail Online.

Wong was criticising MCCBCHST’s recent outcry over the free Quran project mooted by the Islamic Information and Services (IIS) Foundation.

In a statement on February 9, the interfaith council dismissed the project’s purported objective to remove misconceptions of Islam, labelling it instead a disguised propagation of Islam that it said was in “bad faith”.

The council said the intended distribution of the translated copies of the Quran to non-Muslims was obnoxious, as a similar right is not given to non-Muslims.

It also insisted that the Quran should not be distributed so freely as the copies might be disrespected, and some Muslims might find it blasphemous to see non-Muslims owning those translated copies of Quran.

The group then listed down several instances of alleged efforts to convert non-Muslims, including the involvement of evangelical groups such as Hidayah Centre Foundation (HCF) and MRM, as well as federal and state religious authorities.

MRM, however, later denied its involvement in the project, as well as other claims that it has been covertly amending the official religious records of those receiving the free copies of the holy text.

IIS has also defended its project as an attempt to help non-Muslims understand Islam, and demanded MCCBCHST issue a public apology.

Racial and religious tensions have simmered for the past few years as Muslim groups accuse Christians of trying to convert Muslims with their insistence on referring to God as ‘Allah’, while Christian groups complain of Bumiputera Christians in Sabah being duped into embracing Islam. — Reuters picRacial and religious tensions have simmered for the past few years as Muslim groups accuse Christians of trying to convert Muslims with their insistence on referring to God as ‘Allah’, while Christian groups complain of Bumiputera Christians in Sabah being duped into embracing Islam. — Reuters picWong, in enforcing MRM’s position on the issue, pointed out that although the organisation is not involved, it still believes that owning a Quran does not automatically mean the individual is forced to read the holy book or embrace Islam.

“Now it’s (MCCBCHST) implying that we are using force towards people to read the Quran. Even if I force you to take the Quran, it’s up to you whether you want to read it or not,” Wong added.

He said he believes that despite possessing good intentions, the MCCBCHST has been using the wrong approach to keeping interfaith relations harmonious.

“They know who is IIS, so they should have spoken to them (IIS) before they issue such a statement.

“It’s like the saying, don’t wash your dirty linen in public. If you have problems pertaining to interfaith issues, then talk to the concerned parties,” Wong said.

As such an important body, the MCCBCHST should be seeking to breach the gap between non-Muslims here and followers of Islam, the religion of the federation, he added.

“Go approach them (IIS) and don’t suddenly issue such statements. What is your intention? I do not know,” he added.

  1. A GOAD, A TIRADE, A POEM AND A SONG

    (Dear Reader, have you not had enough of the beguiling double-talk that our leaders have refined to an art-form?………let us speak plainly then, to my essay “What Will You Do”)

    WHAT WILL YOU DO?

    Hello there…..its me again…….Don Laird

    You were warned Britain.

    You were warned Europe.

    You were warned as you turned your backs on your countries and sold the same to the communist dictators in Brussels, the same dictators who now rule and destroy your nations with fists of iron, with the choking, strangling totalitarian fists of quintessential absolute rule. And now, defenceless and impotent, you watch as the Leftist handmaiden, the Muslim, a sickening group of pedophiles and fanatical lunatics, smears the filth and vulgarity of its Islam on your beloved countries.

    You deserve nothing less for as you abandoned the toil of countless generations, as you abandoned the gifts of your forefathers, gifts paid for their very lives, as you abandoned providential favour, so too shall you be abandoned.

    Britain and many European countries; you have been abandoned by your monarchy, but could you expect any less as it was you who abandoned your monarchy? Now kings and queens, paper tigers each and every one, watch from the ramparts as their wretched subjects are made fodder and grist for Muslim meatgrinders.

    You have been abandoned by your politicians who now serve new masters. Politicians who now are little more than panhandling monkeys rattling tin-cups for their organ grinding Muslim masters. Duplicitous little monkeys whose rattling echoes now violate the hallways once haunted by great men and women, mocking rattles that now drown out the echoes of the uplifting, of the commanding voices of Churchill, of Enoch Powell, of Disreali, of Victoria, of Elizabeth, of Wellington, of Nelson, of those souls who swore an oath through glorious song;

    “The nations, not so blest as thee, must, in their turns, to tyrants fall; While thou shalt flourish great and free, the dread and envy of them all. “Rule, Britannia! rule the waves: “Britons never will be slaves.”……….

    You have been abandoned by virtually every one of your law enforcement agencies, agencies whose members tongues now provide, at the shrieking, shrill Muslim beck and call, cleaning services for every Muslim ass and boot tip. As if that were not enough whilst they clean the arses of Muslims in your ears rings the screams of your defenseless women and daughters as they are gang raped, molested and pimped by your grunting drooling Muhammadan masters. Oh how these Muhammadans must wet their pants with peals of laughter, laughing and giggling as, at their disposal for their violent and grotesque sexual pleasures are your wives, your sisters, your daughters and your children, a virtual Islamic meat-market

    You have been abandoned by your intelligence agencies who can now do nothing but tell you of your impending fate; a dirty little secret, that you and your families are about to be butchered at the leisure and pleasure of Islamic animals. How rich.

    You have been abandoned by your Judiciary who, on wings of black from the very pinnacle of sneering arrogance, render verbose Judicial lunacy, vomitous drivel the very definition of treason and sedition, all whilst ignoring mountains of evidence and your criminal code in favor of the madness of leftist political correctness, turning mass murderers and mad dogs loose amongst you, and you do nothing, still you do nothing.

    You have been abandoned by legions of professors and school masters who carve up and destroy the minds of your children and then with the little that is left over of your precious gifts, they poison that with liberal leftist Islamic rhetoric turning your children into traitors with a seething hatred of themselves, their country and their magnificent heritage.

    You have been abandoned by your clergy as these grasping little clerics, loathed by God himself, Archbishop’s Welby and Williams, hike their robes and offer England’s collective soul to be sodomized by the filthy hoards of those dusky hued animals; illiterate, base, verminous, savage and barbaric Muslims, animals who seek the sexual favours of toddlers and domestic livestock. How utterly sickened the Christ must be to watch such a mocking scene from on high, but alas, were there any two little worms who were more deserving of the fate more than Beckett, it is these two clowns. Yet still, your blindness compounds your ignorance, compounds your cowardice; still you allow them the destruction of your nations soul.

    And to all of this what will you do? What will you do as the laughter of the Muslim rings off the rooftops of mosques from Melilla to Madrid to Medina to Mecca to Montreal and every place in between?

    What will you do as Western civilized democratic societies, the greatest success story in the history of Mankind, are turned into catch basins for waves upon waves of human garbage, Humanity’s lowest common denominator, a precious gift from the Middle East and Africa, as the Third-World flushes its emigration toilet? What will you do?

    Will you arm yourselves? Will you find the courage God gave you? Will you find your spines and your Manhood? Will you rise to defend your women and your children? Will you rise in honour of your ancestor’s blood soaked gift of freedom?

    Will you arm yourselves and walk over those aforementioned cowards who have abandoned you? Will you appeal to the decency of military men to rally among themselves and form battalions loyal to England, loyal to their countries, loyal to that which birthed and nourished them and not to those treasonous bootlickers in the Parliaments who call themselves your political representatives, your political masters?

    Will you arm yourselves and arrest and put to trial those law enforcement officers and officials who ignore the boundless criminality of the Muslim? And then will you have the courage to execute the sentences you have passed on those treasonous officers and officials who have done your nations such harm?

    Will you arm yourselves, kick down the courthouse doors and arrest the Judiciary and the cancerous legal industry whose actions, the very manifest definition of treason and sedition, seek to protect the Muslim, seek to turn loose the Muslim mass murderers among your women and children, seek to turn predators loose on your streets? Will you set these destroyers of your nations before military tribunals to account for their crimes?

    Will you arm yourselves and take back your streets, your schools, your businesses, your places of worship, your law courts and your Parliaments from the Muslim? Will you have the courage to remove every single vestige, every last shred of Islam, every last Muslim from the shores of England, from every corner of Europe?

    Will you have the courage to remove every single mosque, the virtual monuments to filth and lunacy, virtual monuments to your humiliation, from your cities and towns and resolve that never again will you allow animals to build their dens of treason murderous ideology on British soil, on the fertile soil of Europe?

    Will you, brick by vulgar brick, dismantle every minaret, minarets from which blares the sound of your present and future, which blares the requiem mass of Western civilization?

    Will you do this, all of this so that peace and quiet will settle once more on those lands “that Freemen till” ?

    What will you do England……?

    What will you do Europe…..?

    What will you do?

    Food for thought, catalyst for action.

    Post Script:

    I am reminded of the words of one of my very favorite poets, Victorian Poet Laureate, Alfred Lord Tennyson, as he pondered “You ask me Why”

    You Ask Me, Why, Tho’ Ill at Ease

    You ask me, why, tho’ ill at ease, within this region I subsist, whose spirits falter in the mist, and languish for the purple seas.

    It is the land that freemen till, that sober-suited Freedom chose, the land, where girt with friends or foes, a man may speak the thing he will;

    A land of settled government, a land of just and old renown, where Freedom slowly broadens down from precedent to precedent;

    Where faction seldom gathers head, but by degrees to fullness wrought, the strength of some diffusive thought hath time and space to work and spread.

    Should banded unions persecute opinion, and induce a time, when single thought is civil crime, and individual freedom mute;

    Tho’ Power should make from land to land the name of Britain trebly great, tho’ every channel of the State should fill and choke with golden sand—

    Yet waft me from the harbour-mouth, Wild wind! I seek a warmer sky, and I will see before I die; the palms and temples of the South.

    -Alfred Lord Tennyson, Poet Laureate, Victorian England
