The daily also quoted Nazri to have said that the series of attacks against the houses of worship has proven that the government was right in its decision to restrict the use of the word.
“Banning the use of ‘Allah’ by Christians was a pre-emptive move to stop outbreaks of religious violence in the nation,” he reportedly said.
Nazri also drew a parallel between the “Allah” dispute and the ‘cow head protest’ in Shah Alam last year, against the relocation of a temple in the Selangor capital.
-quoted from The Malaysian Insider–
Nazri oh Nazri. Please don’t give us these kind of bullsh1t. We’re not stupid.
The use of the word of ‘Allah’ in Christian text was never an issue in the first place. But thanks to Syed Hamid Albar, he turned it into a big thing. This is proof of the narrow-mindedness & bigotry BN gahmen had instilled into the minds of so many Malaysian.
If there wasn’t a ban, and an ensuing court case. This would totally be a non-issue. The gahmen could’ve done the right thing and explained to the public that the word ‘allah’ simply means god in Arabic. But all these cheebai politicians decided to add oil to fire.
“Lets stir religious and racial hatred. Then send the UMNO machai’s to create some chaos.”
Seriously, these politicians are stupid. If they create a peaceful environment for business and increase the standard of living… then there are more money in the system for them to get corrupted. People would turn a blind eye as long as our lives are good (well… sort of turn half-a-blind-eye). Is it that difficult to figure out? Mahathir forgot teach you guys all these meh?
