Flip flopping all the way, Syed Hamid Albar!! An idiot flip flopper, yay!

Flip flops flip flops.. everybody loves them…

No, me ain’t talking about that.

Since Pak Lah in his true leader style started this flip flops yoyo craps, his ministers also infected with the incurable disease. Latest flip flopper is non other but Syed Hamid Albar!

Catch no ball? Have no freaking clue?

Lifted ban of the word ‘Allah’ rescinded

PETALING JAYA (March 1, 2009) : The ban on Herald, the Catholic weekly, to use the word “Allah” which was lifted by the government on Feb 16, has been rescinded.

Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar said the government had made a mistake in enacting the gazette on the issue.’

(Read more at The Sun)

Oscar the Grouch from The Dandelions in his post put it in perspective:

1. On January 21, Syed Hamid Albar signed a directive under the Internal Security Act by way of gazette, allowing the conditional use of the word “Allah” in Christian publications. The gazette came into effect on February 16. On March 1, Syed Hamid Albar said that he would issue a fresh gazette to rescind the earlier gazette – the reason being – there were “mistakes” made in the drafting of the Feb 16 gazette.

Yes! In Malaysia, we can have a law created today, gone tomorrow! Worse is, today the law says you can do ‘this’.. so everybody is happy and merry doing ‘this’ but walllaaaaa! The next day the one stupid minister revokes the law and you are guilty for this ‘this’, so off you go to jail!

Stupid Hamid Albar just did that! And he is setting a very dangerous precedent. Quoting Oscar the Grouch again:

Another damning implication arising from Syed Hamid Albar’s action in issuing a fresh gazette to cancel the earlier one – is that it creates an unhealthy precedent affronting the rules of retrospective laws. Article 7 (1) of the Federal Constitution* provides that no person shall be punished for an act or omission which was not punishable by law when it was done or made.

For example, if smoking is not an offence today, then a law cannot be made tomorrow to declare smoking an offence today – this is retrospective laws. This means, I cannot be convicted of smoking yesterday, last week or last month by a law that operates retrospectively.

But by issuing “cancellation” orders, Syed Hamid may be doing just that. On February 16, the law allows me to use the word “Allah”. Because of that – I start printing, publishing and circulating to people in my church. 2 weeks later, a new law come up to revoke the old law – to the effect that there was no such law in the first place. This means, technically, I have committed an offence and can be charged under the ISA.

2. Mistake? What a stupid mistake.  Stupid Hamid must be sleeping while signing the law to be gazetted, our his staffs that proof-read the law are complete brain dead. Too dumb to even bring it up in the first place. Find the mistake in this wording of the gazette, please.

The printing, publication, sale, issue, circulation and possession of any document and publication relating to Christianity containing the words Allah, Kaabah, Baitullah and solat are prohibited unless on the front cover of the document and publication are written with the words “FOR CHRISTIANITY.”

Mistake my foot. You don’t need a law degree to understand the provisions above. Simple. Crisp and clear. But, again, in Malaysia you must believe in coincidence. Are you ready??

Holy shiet, believe me when I say it was a pure coincidence that there were calls by certain bodies, notably the Malaysian Islamic Da’wah Foundation, urging the government to withdraw permission for the conditional use of the word “Allah” in Christian publications before Syed Hamid rescinded the earlies gazette!! Not related at all. Believe. Me. Told you it was a coincidence. 1+1 = 3, only in Malaysia. Logics? Throw it out of the window. Malaysians don’t need it.

Syed Hamid was commenting on the call by the Malaysian Islamic Da’wah Foundation (Yadim) earlier today, urging the government to withdraw permission for the conditional use of the word “Allah” in Christian publications.

Its chairman Datuk Mohd Nakhaie Ahmad said the government had not acted wisely in allowing the use of the word in Christian publications which he said could anger Muslims not only in the country but also throughout the world.

For example, how the fuck you want to put logic on a murder trial that has suspects with no murder motive? No motive, then why murder? Suka-suka lah!!!!!!

Be very careful my friends, for we have idiots like this in power. I am very afraid now, because I used to mock him and called him stupid many times on this blog, you can do the search yourself. If one day he makes a law that says anyone calling him stupid should be ISA-ed, my past actions may be an offence too! Damn!!


Article 7. Protection against retrospective criminal laws and repeated trials

(1) No person shall be punished for an act or omission which was not punishable by law when it was done or made, and no person shall suffer greater punishment for an offence than was prescribed by law at the time it was committed.

(2) A person who has been acquitted or convicted of an offence shall not be tried again for the same offence except where the conviction or acquittal has been quashed and a retrial ordered by a court superior to that by which he was acquitted or convicted.

ps: Syed Hamid Albar son of Syed Jaafar Albar. Bapa borek anak rintik. It runs in the gene! If you know what I mean.

pss: This issue of using the word ‘Allah’ and its exclusivity is really ridiculous. Why? I refuse to believe my Muslim brothers and sisters would be so easily ‘confused’. Just if you don’t know, in Arabic, they can use “Rabb” or “Ilaah” to say “Tuhan”, but the Christians and Jews still prefer to use “Allah”,  and we never heard any Arabic speaking Muslims against that.

If indeed thou ask them who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon (to his Law), they will certainly reply, “Allah”. […] And if indeed thou ask them who it is that sends down rain from the sky, and gives life therewith to the earth after its death, they will certainly reply, “Allah!” (Surah Ankabut, verses 61-63)”

This Koranic verse refers to the Pagans of Mecca, even in the Koran it recognises the right of non-Muslims using the word “Allah”.

Enough said.

    First it was” flip flop’ pak lah and his double talk son in law,
    then come aoril fools day we have this fellow who’s name rhymes with shit, who is the progeny of the may 13th architect, we have a home minister who is a progeny of “the hatchet man from Singapore” who is likely to take over the defence portfolio in the new cabinet.
    much of the fascist decision are due to umno supreme council, the 25 people in this council decide everything from economic matters to who gets arrested under ISA. There are currently 72 persons vying for the coveted 25 positions, I perused the 72 names , all I can say is there are many so unfit that in any other country their own party will not field them.

    I’m interested in those flip-flops. 😆

    Who needs newspapers when blog entries like this can keep me posted on the Malaysian politics?

    1st time here.

    Syed hamid memang suka flip flop..tapi tentang penggunaan Allah sebagai ganti Tuhan,aku cadangkan untuk kau baca blog sahabat aku yang pada aku,aku setuju dengan pendapat dia.

    -syed hamid is an idiot..yeah..

    My friend,

    Sahabat saudara memang betul, Allah orang Kristian dan Allah orang Islam mengikut ajaran masing-masing memang berlainan. Soalnya, bagaimana isu nama Allah dipakai orang Kristian dalam Kitab Injil Bahasa Melayu boleh mengelirukan orang Islam sedangkan sudah terang-terang ia digunakan dalam Kitab orang Kristian, bererti ia adalah UNTUK penganut Kristian dan segala perkataan dan pengertian dalam Kitab tersebut harus dibaca mengikut/berdasarkan konteks agama Kristian? Bukankah dangkal hujah bahawa perkataan Allah dalam Kitab orang Kristian boleh mengelirukan orang Islam? Maafkan saya, apakah saudara-saudara yang beragama Islam begitu cetek ilmu agama dan senang keliru sehingga tidak dapat membezakan yang mana Allah mengikut ajaran Islam, dan yang mana bukan? Tidak timbul soal keliru sekiranya semua penganut agama biar Kristian, Islam, Hindu, Yahudi arif akan agama masing-masing, seperti sahabat saudara, setuju? Kita tidak melihat di negara lain, wujudnya masalah ini, mengapa? Adakah mereka kurang Islam? Tidak. Isu di sini bukan isu nama Allah. Ini isu politik, Herald ada menyentuh perkara-perkarayang dianggap berbaur ‘politik’ oleh kerajaan dalam artikel terbitannya, maka dicari sebab untuk menggantung lesen penerbitan Herald. Untuk makluman, sudah sekian lama, bumiputera Kristian Sabah Sarawak menggunakan nama Allah sebagai nama Tuhan dalam kitab mereka. Sejak lepas Merdeka lagi. Mengapa dulu tidak timbul isu?
    Thanks for sharing the link and thanks dropping by, my friend.

    Jika isu ini cenderung kepada politik,its so sad that agama menjadi mainan.Tentang kekeliruan itu,saya tidak menjangkakan efek pada masa sekarang.Saya cuma risaukan untuk 50-100 tahun akan datang..cukuplah jika Kitab Injil bahasa melayu itu terlepas ke tangan 2 orang muslim yang goyah fahaman agamanya,pasti ia akan merebak ke ramai orang lagi.Itu yang saya khuatiri berlaku.Tidak pada masa sekarang,tapi berabad akan datang.Sebab utama,muslim di malaysia mudah terpengaruh.Sedangkan pada waktu sekarang pun mereka terabai dan terpengaruh,inikan pula berabad akan datang bila masa saya tiada nanti.Bukan salah agama,tapi salah diri itu sendiri.Jadi,saya menyokong untuk penolakkan penggunaan itu atas dasar kekeliruan untuk generasi akan datang.Jika 100% pasti tidak akan dibaca oleh muslim,maka saya tidak ada bantahan untuk digunakan.


  7. bongkersz wrote on Mar 4, 2009 at 10:13 am

    Tidak perlu saya tulis jawab panjang lebar, melainkan:

    1. penganut agama yang goyah fahaman agamanya, akan senang terpengaruh dengan apa jua bentuk cubaan dan cabaran.

    2. adakah lebih baik menguatkan jati diri agama seseorang itu supaya walaupan diasak pelbagai cubaan akan tetap teguh dan utuh, atau lebih baik menjauhkan ‘cubaan’ yang pasti datang dalam pelbagai bentuk?

    3. jika itu ‘salah diri sendiri’, mengapa perlu mengubah sesuatu yang di luar ‘diri sendiri’, tetapi tidak mengubah diri sendiri.

    4. mengapa orang islam di malaysia mudah terpengaruh? ini soal utama.

    kekeliruan pasti ada. kita tidak boleh menghalang mana-mana individu untuk bebas memilih bahan bacaan mereka, melakukan apa yang mereka inginkan, tetapi kita boleh menyediakan mereka dengan ilmu supaya mereka bijak membuat pilihan.

    blaming outside influences, is not taking your own responsibility in a problem.

    What I cannot take it is, as a learned person, graduate of Oxford, the son in law irresponsibility stirring thuggish sentiments among his supporters.

    This guy is dangerous. He’s a hyposcrite, he’s impressive when he’s debating issues, going on the screen raising critical points but his doings are far from what he preached. Asshole.

    After Zaid Ibrahim was sacked, Umno left with only morons.

    xda sesiapa yang akan goyah agamanya hanya kerana baca injil dlm BM….jika betul imannya teguh, xkan injil boleh menggoyahkan imannya wahai saudara? saya mempunyai rakan muslim yg mempunyai pelbagai koleksi injil, sampai hari ni imannya masih pada islam, kerana kata beliau, beliau tetap percaya pada agamanya….beliau hanya membaca untuk membuktikan agamanya adalah yang BETUL. so, apa masalahnya? komen2 anda sangat tipikal, sikit2 nak tuduh nak murtadkan orang lain. pathetic. bagaimana kalau saya kata jika ada org islam yg cuba berdakwah dgn saya? marahkah saya kepd mereka? sedangkan mereka menjalankan kewajipan mereka sahaja. malah, saya tak pernah menyalahkan mereka kerana saya sedar mereka hanya menjalankan kewajipan sebgai seorang muslim untuk berdakwah….semua ni bergantung kepada diri sendiri samada hendak menerima atau tidak. malah, saya masih lagi teguh iman sampai hari ini wahai saudara…..

    cukuplah sudah saya mendengar tohmahan yang dilemparkan…bila kami buat benda yang sama, kami salah. bila anda buat perkara yang sama….anda SEMUA ADALAH BETUL….X pernah dipersalahkan…..apa perasaan pihak kami jika awak berada di pihak kami…wahai saudara?
