YOURSAY | 'She and other Umno leaders like Mahathir and Anwar had gone all out to Islamise the country ...'
Odysseus: Former international trade and industry minister Rafidah Aziz, you have nailed the facts right on. The current cabinet ministers are truly useless and hopeless. They can't do anything useful for the country.
They don't mind destroying the country for their own short-term benefit.
Victor Johan: What an example Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak could think of to stress his point. Is this Prime Minister Najib Razak-selected minister crazy, or is he stupid?
Bob the Builder: We have a bunch of fools for BN ministers who must have received enough ‘dedak’ (animal feed) from MO1 (Malaysian Official 1) to criticise our beloved former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad, to the extent of destroying the legacy the latter.
Responsible Malaysian: It is when the rakyat do not reside in these politicians' hearts, that you will see them speak the way Salleh does, as though the nation is their private property.
Abasir: Aren't you proud of Umno, Rafidah, your party of choice, which has succeeded in breeding and promoting imbeciles so profusely?
Anonymous_1431954960: Rafidah, you must have just awakened from your sleep. How come you, as a former BN minister, do not know we've the most pariah cabinet ministers in world at this point of time?
Anonymous_1401773638: Rafidah, that's what happens when you destroy the legacy the country had when you were in power. Think of the English language; the road signs; the administrative and the legal system that had been destroyed.
Think of the value system that had been destroyed in terms of the privatisation of public assets at prices that were ridiculous; where the same group cannot differentiate what is "public" and what is "private".
Think of the inability of the group in supporting the setting up of casinos and gambling dens in the country. What we see today is the legacy of the past coming to back to the teachers of the present. Nothing new.
Pemerhati: Rafidah should not forget that it was she and the other leaders of Umno like Mahathir and his former deputy, Anwar Ibrahim, who had gone all out to Islamise the country to an as extreme a level as possible.
Religious teachers were sent to the Middle East for training and they came back and taught the Islamic Wahhabi religion and ‘tudung-ised’ nearly all the Malay schoolgirls. The Malay women in the public service were also brainwashed and tudung-ised.
Only a few brave ones like Rafidah herself, Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor and Mahathir’s daughter Marina, did not follow the others to wear the tudung.
In a CNN interview, the former Saudi imam of the Grand Mosque, Islam’s holiest site, said, “We have the same beliefs as Islamic State (IS), we share their ideology but we express it in a more refined way”.
That ideology, according to Fareed Zakaria of CNN is known as Wahhabism and it is a puritanical and intolerant interpretation of Islam.
So no one should be surprised if some Wahhabi Malays have been radicalised or talk of death and destruction like the Taliban and IS.
Anticonmen: People do not need defenders of society, but defenders of human rights and the individual rights of equality and the freedoms of speech, assembly and religion.
Game Changer: What is wrong with those in the Forestry Department, are you denying the Orang Asli's basic needs? You are a disgrace to humanity.
Lajib: Perhaps PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang can shine some light on this hot issue?
Basically: So much for Hadi's swipe at Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Penang some time back.
Salor assemblyperson Husam Musa had been grilling the 'clean' and ever so 'Islamic' Kelantan government over this issue for months, and then he was sacked.
And if you recall, the Kelantan sultan spoke against rampant logging during the flood disaster of 2014, although his highness was polite in his rebuke.
PAS ulama are hypocrites in turbans and crooks pulling the wool over the ummah's eyes with their lofty religious spiel.
Hplooi: In a theocratic state (of which PAS is working towards), no one would be able to question the government, as questioning people who are in positions of authority (by divine right) would be tantamount to questioning God.
The Orang Asli would have even less rights as they are not of those favoured by God, in PAS' eyes.
Anubis: The more religion you imbibe, the stupider and more unjust you become. This is clearly the case in Kangkong Land (formerly Kampung Tempurung). -Mkini
