It really gets the frustration out of me to see this happening every time. Yes, I read TheStar almost every day along with third party media streams for a fair view. Ever since the incident of Allah word, and then to the raid of DUMC and now to this.
“SHAH ALAM: The Selangor Islamic Affairs Department (Jais) claims that it has found a solar-powered “hand-held audio Bible” that has been used to spread Christianity, state executive councillor Datuk Dr Hasan Ali said. He said Jais discovered the audio device while conducting research on proselytisation among Muslims in the state. “The research also revealed several efforts by the Christian community to convert Muslims by setting up welfare groups, giving financial aid and other forms of assistance to single mothers, the poor and the elderly,” he said.” More from HERE.
But really, this is pure nonsense. Any Muslims who are reading this will be deeply insulted too. I mean, with just an audio device that speaks about the bible has something wrong about it? In this age of technology, what’s wrong with a handheld audio Bible when anything about any religion is around on the internet. As non muslims we too have heard the prayers of Muslim 5 times a day through the speakers blasting through the skies. When I was in matriculation, I enter the mosque almost once every week for gathering purpose, I paid respect by silent during prayer time. And yes the Christian fellowship I started off with others were done “underground”.
This has to stop. I mean it has been more than 50 years of independence and we is talking about this, I recognize Islam well enough as a religion that will respect others too as much as Christianity does. There are nothing to be blamed with religions but the people who could just say all they want through the press. Or to say, well political motives like getting back PAS supporters because Islam is on the go.
And the part that insulted me the most is when the article states that “The research also revealed several efforts by the Christian community to convert Muslims by setting up welfare groups, giving financial aid and other forms of assistance to single mothers, the poor and the elderly” I nearly faint for reading this.
As Christian, we are a religion of justice and we help anyone that is mistreated because we do not want to forsake anyone regardless of skin colors nor religion. Besides it is also all right to say that is Ethical and humanity approach. So now you are saying all the good works we do are to spread religion. Then allow me to tell you that there are so many people in any part of the world is hunger of hope and truth. And it’s totally up to then because religion again is a personal thing and human rights for anything including religion rules above it.
Ahh. We are all just trying to do our best but people with these mindsets are just thinking about themselves… and their religion apparently.
