Being Relevant

Someone asked me why am I not writing anything about SIS being declared as deviating from Islam by the Selangor Fatwa Committee.

Honestly, I have nothing to say about the whole thing.

For one thing, I am not an Islamic scholar, so how am I supposed to comment on something that had been discussed and analysed by a committee of learned men on the subject of the aqidah and the things that would be considered a deviation from the faith.

However, I do find Zainah Anwar blaming Putrajaya for the fatwa as rather comical.

Come on, you want the federal government to curtail the states' fatwa committee?  In this case, the Selangor Fatwa Committee?

The Selangor that is currently governed and administered by a PKR Menteri Besar?

And with a Sultan who has already said that fatwa was released with his endorsement?

And you are blaming Putrajaya?

It is easy ain't it, playing the blame game?

My question is, why take pot shots at Putrajaya when your gripe is with the Selangor state?

Hello makcik, even SIS' judicial review was filed against Majlis Agama Islam Selangor, Selangor Fatwa Committee and the Selangor State Government.

Putrajaya wasn't in on it la ...

Or is that a mandatory requirement of being a The Star columnist, if there is someone that you want to blame something on, blame Putrajaya?

    Anwar is involved. "My position is that there must be an avenue for people to agree to disagree and to continue to have discussions in a proper forum," Anwar said after giving a speech at the Muslim democrats’ conference dinner in Petaling Jaya. And we all know his motive is to legalize LGBT sex and what follows after that, ie. same-sex marriage.

    “It is a huge tragedy for me to see humans, in the 21st Century, torturing and beheading people like ISIS do,” said Col. Nahida Ahmad Rashid, the commanding officer of the 2nd Battalion Peshmerga Female Corps. “Until the day I die, until the last drop of my blood, I will fight ISIS.”
