This is an interesting story
So, according to that study, Perikatan is the most racist coalition in the Melaka election, followed by Pakatan and then BN.
Most interesting for me is that Pakatan used more racial and religious tactics than BN in that election.
And this study was done by people who are not exactly pro-BN.
Okay, the study found that Pakatan's racial and religious campaigning are mostly to say that BN is a racist and religious bigot coalition, but still, it's a form of using race and religion to win the election, right?
It also tells us that Pakatan is accusing BN of using racism and religious bigotry more than BN itself actually being racist and religious bigot.
Well, I know about this all these while. That's why, despite Pakatan's claim of its inclusiveness and desire for racial equality, I know that most of them are just a bunch of hypocrites.
The ones who did the most jumping around calling others racists are themselves the worst racists.
Just look at the Loh Siew Hong case. Who are the first gang of politicians and their supporters getting involved in it by throwing racial and religious accusations all over the place?
Yup, the BJP or LTTE wannabe gang within DAP.
The way I see it, they just wanted to exploit the case so that Indians will continue to support them and their party by accusing the Muslim authorities of suppressing the community.
Did the Muslims or Umno gang react to that?
I don't think so. At least not in a way that the DAP extremists were hoping. There were of course some grumblings but it's not like Muslims are up in arms over it.
I think the overwhelming majority of Muslims in this country know that the whole thing was just a family dispute and nothing to get too excited about.
The kids are back with their mother, as they rightfully should be, but if Allah wills it, they will remain Muslims. If not, that's Allah's will too.
The religious authorities had after all done all they could to help care for the kids after their father converted them to Islam.
It doesn't really matter that they were whacked for looking after the kids during the three-year absence of their parents, because that's Allah's will too.
I believe most Muslims in this country are of that thought over the whole thing.
We will just pray to Allah for the kids to be safe and remain in Islam.
Still, there are people who feel that they need to say this,
In a statement today, Gabungan Bertindak Malaysia (GBM) warned that doing so could affect relations among various races in the country and undermine Islam's image
"Loh's children returning to their mother does not close the door to them becoming Muslims when they are adults," said GBM chairman Badlishah Sham Baharin.
"GBM is confident that Malaysians can accept a just and reasonable solution to the plight of Loh and her children.
"Muslim Malaysians should not buy into fearmongering that non-Muslims are out to reduce the number of Muslims."
First of all, the ones who from the very start of the issue have been trying to turn the issue into a "communal contest" are those DAP BJP/LTTE wannabes, okay.
The media was also complicit in that by pushing the narrative that the main issue about the kids was their unilateral conversion to Islam by their father and blaming the religious authorities over it.
I don't think the media would be so gung ho about the issue if it's just about a custody battle over the kids.
And why worry about the image of Islam now after it was shredded throughout the whole thing by the self-appointed defenders of a Hindu mother's rights.
Those extremists in DAP and Pakatan along with their co-believers in the media have all these while been peddling the idea that Muslims are trying to steal non-Muslim kids and convert them, okay.
So many of such cases in the past.
The real reason behind their antics was their own racism and prejudice towards Muslims, coupled with their loathing of this country being ruled by the majority "inferior race".
And who is this Badlishah guy to say that the kids could still be Muslims when they are adults.
Hey bro, the kids are still Muslims now and will continue to be so if their hearts remain with Islam even with them being with their Hindu mother.
As about Muslims succumbing to "fearmongering" that non-Muslims are out to reduce their number, rest assured that most Muslims in this country have no fear over such things.
Otherwise, BN which used the least amount of racial and religious issues in its campaign wouldn't have won the Melaka election by a landslide riding on mostly the support of Malay Muslims majority in that state.
