The rape of reason

MCA Wanita vice-chairperson Heng Seai Kie reportedly warned non-Muslim women that Muslim men would in effect rape them, particularly those who don’t conform to the Islamic dress code. This act, she declared, would be condoned by Nik Aziz and, by extension, his Pas party.

If Seai Kie is to be believed, then it is most advisable that she clamp herself with a chastity belt pronto to avoid untoward incident — and stay away from Malay-Muslim individuals, including those potent politicians who walk the corridors of power and those who have come into a political and electoral pact with her MCA party.

Such is the politics of fear that is being peddled by those who are being haunted by their own political uncertainty.

Army Vets butt in the Bersih discourse

Apparently the 100 Plus drink is a no-no for Malays and Islam, but gyrating old bums seems kosher.

Having a fling with the judges

After being handed a court order to evict himself from his premises “because of disciplinary problems”, an imam demonstrated his displeasure by throwing his shoes at three judges on the Federal Court bench.

He might have been “inspired” by similar shoe-throwing act committed by Iraqi journalist Muntader al-Zaidi. He threw his shoes at the then US President George W. Bush during a press conference in Iraq in December 2008.

Malaysiakini reports:

The incident took place just after 10am when the three-man bench led by Chief Judge of Malaya Justice Zulkifli Ahmad Makinuddin(right) rejected imam Hoslan Hussain’s application to hear his appeal.

This followed an objection raised by the Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Council (MAIWP) lawyer Zulkefli Che Yong that Hoslan’s affidavit was filed outside the timeframe allowed.

Er, it’s okay to attend Thaipusam…

Perak Mufti Harussani Zakaria declared that it’s okay for Prime Minister Mohd Najib to have attended the recent Thaipusam celebration — after the latter had a personal chat with him recently.

So, folks, please delete his earlier comment on February 10 that he was dismayed over the Prime Minister’s decision “to sacrifice his faith” to attend the religious festival concerned.

The resolve of Allah-tested Shahrizat

The umrah-weary Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil declared in no uncertain terms that she’d carry on leading Wanita Umno.

She added that the Cow Controversy was merely “Allah’s way of testing her resilience as a leader” (which suggests that she’s aware that God is watching us always). “Resilience,” as defined by the dictionary, is “the ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune; buoyancy.” But some cynics and critics may even include “arrogance” and “obstinacy” to this definition.

Doggoned!

Of late, a certain canine feelin’ overwhelms Malaysian politics.

I swear

This number is dedicated to individuals who have the passion and penchant for swearing themselves in public, especially in a political climate that seems to have given encouragement to such sworn characters.
