I feel so opinionated today

In other words, I'm getting pissed. All the frenzy about the canning and the severe punishment and the thing about Malaysia turning into an all Islamic is totally blown out of proportion. I am getting pissed at people who talks only using their fickle mind without even researching on the topic first. Who do they think they are? GOD? Feel like wanting to slap each of their faces.

I really don't understand WHAT IS THE PROBLEM with people and the canning case? The person involved had agreed. I repeat AGREED to the punishment. So, people who doesn't have anything to do with it SHUT UP!!

I mean, what's with the "it's too severe" or "It's inhumane" or "it's inappropriate" or "It's against human rights" CRAP? The canning is not like the canning they do in the prison. They are trying to educate and remind not to do it again, NOT KILL HER! It's just like how our fathers used to can us for being too naughty. As for other Syariah Law's punishments, it's not to be done sleezily, or as-matter-of-fact-ly with kind of attitude. It requires deep investigation, and long weighing weather the person deserves to be punished as such or not.

I did a survey that ask something like "Do you care if Malaysia turned into an Islamic country?" HELLO!! take a train check. According to the constitution, Malaysia IS AN ISLAMIC COUNTRY. What kind of question is that? Maybe, the country is not an extremely Islamic country, but to an extent, IT IS an ISLAMIC country. Get it through you head!

I don't understand why people look at Islam in such a negative way. The teachings of Islam, is just the same as any religion. Do the good and avoid the bad. Even Christians prohibits it's followers to drink alcohol and eat pork and do free sex or premarital sex. Just because other people do it, that doesn't make it the right thing to do. In Al-Quran, in Bible and in the Sutras, all say that u need to do good deed, practice chivalry, do charity and avoid doing wrong. Just because people doesn't follow it, that doesn't mean it's wrong.

There are too many people admitting themselves as Muslim but in reality they behave in a very un-Islamic way. It gets harder day by day to practice the Islamic way the right way and not seemed as extreme or wrong by the non-Muslim because of those people. It gets harder to explain these things to the Non-Muslim. Guys, PLEASE try to understand. Just because other people who seemed like us do it, that doesn't mean it is the right way, or it is ok to do it.

Let me give u a simple example. Let's say a Muslim is on a trip with their company. The trip has both Muslims and non-Muslim. They decide to have seafood at a chinese restaurant. Then, this one Muslim, refuses to eat there, saying that she'd buy it from a stall next door, and eat there with them. Other Muslims are okay with eating there.- Now, in this case, the one Muslim who refuses would seemed picky, because other Muslims are okay with it - WRONG. The thing that should be here, doesn't the other so called Muslims practice their religion? Okay, u might say, u won't order pork, so it's HALAL, but DO YOU or DO THEY (the cooks) know the real definition of HALAL? The pork eating does not apply to only pork, but also the utensils that had been in contact with the pork. Without the proper way of cleaning it, It is still non-HALAL. If they use alcohol in the cooking for the flavor, it is also non halal. You can't simply say, it's Halal because you THINK it is.

So please, people. If you don't know for sure, DON'T SAY IT AS IF YOU KNOW FOR SURE. It pisses people who knows - period! I may not be so religious as a Muslim, but still it irks me when people say what they want according to what they think, but they never really do any research on the religion. I don't put stereotype in other people's religion, I don't go around and say oh Buddhist this or oh Christians that, so please don't put stereotype, especially negative ones to my religion.

Too bad if I hurt anyone. You can rant me back if you want, but I'll be sure to give you back a piece of my mind coz, I'm a brat with an opinion :p

When you want to talk about other people's religion, please do a RESEARCH first!
I happened to read this today. I agree with the author in many things he said, but there are just certain things that I can't seem to agree.. no matter how hard I tried. I agree with one of the comment given by the readers, 'do not speak of something you don't know of'.

I do agree that the way Malaysia handles its religions issues especially Islam is quite wrong. But please, do not see that as the view of what the religion really is about. The act of 40 people must not be turned into an agenda that caused prejudice to the rest thousands and millions of people who happens to share the same religion. Their act is stupid and shameful, even to me.

Just Looking at their STUPIDITY angers me

Every religion has their own customs, beliefs, and certain way of conduct. The religion itself is sacred - no matter if it's Buddha, Hindu, Christian or anything. The one that contaminates the religion is the human themselves. In Islam, there was not written that they should parade around boycotting and act like a gangster. There was also non written that the religion is 'inherited' as well. If the child who was born Muslim, but ends up not being a Muslim at all, then the fault lies in the upbringing and the person itself.

The act of the Muslims when confronted with an issue of 'Murtad' was actually a reaction of their dissatisfaction. According to the religion, such people who walks out of the religion and made it known openly, in one way or the other announcing it, must be killed. Of course nowadays, there won't be such a thing happening and so the people become dissatisfied since they are helpless. I'm not saying the way they handled it is perfect, but if you are in their shoes, you might act the same... or even worse. You CAN 'check out' of the religion, but you have to face the wrath of people. If you don't want to make it much of hassle then DO NOT make it into an issue. Don't tell anyone except for your closest family and friends. If you went on and include the media and the whole country over it, of course people will get mad - as in the case of Lina Joy. Stupid woman.

Why should there be such a law over leaving this religion? Syaikh ‘Abd al-Qadir Audah hafizhahullah explains,

The raison d’etre of capital punishment for apostasy is Syariah is that apostasy is repugnant to the faith of Islam on which the Islamic society is founded. If this offence is taken lightly, the collective system of Islam may collapse. The severe punishment laid down for it aims at the total elimination of apostasy on the one hand and warning and preventing others from committing it.
Obviously, capital punishment serves as a more effective deterrent than any other punishment. Whatever the factors inciting commitment of the offence, capital punishment stirs up the preventive factors in human psyche and a man refrains as often as not from committing the offence.
Most of the modern law in operation ensure security of the social system by prescribing harshest punishment for those who violate and destroy the system. The first of such punishments is death penalty. In other words, modern laws lay down the same punishment for causing disorder, safeguarding the social system as does the Islamic syariah.
Make sense doesn't it. Death punishment are always given to act that could harm the country and it's peace. In the case of Islam, it's the same. Apostasy is something that could harm, and crumble the religion. If you silently leave the religion, no one (except their close relative and friends) will give a damn about it.

I don't like the sarcasm that the author put inside his writing. I'm not denying that most of what he said are true but he should have researched about the religion first before simply putting it that way. People who are not in another people's shoe, who do not understand or know what other people does should always thread the matter of the issue cautiously - or you might get 'burned' for it.

I'm just some brat scribbling my opinion
