When The "Holy" Look the Other Way ....

Yang Mulia Raja Petra Kamarudin
"At no time should a person be detained without undergoing due process of law, in which the right to fair hearing is of utmost importance, and criminal prosecution initiated for unreasonable purposes.
Such an action, regardless of the initiating party, goes against the principles of natural justice and the Syari’ah which mandates impartiality, justice and fairness.
Vice President (International)
Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM)


With regard to matters on Islam/ Syariah, I wouldn't want to give a personal opinion here.
Just Take a look at the above Face of RPK (and read the ABIM statement),
and then compare with what you see below.
Decide for yourself,
Which one face and statement would you rather trust?
Who do you think needs "Rehabilitation"?

The following is a report by NST on Jakim's stand on the "Jahilliyah" premise of ISA.
Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abdul Aziz (Jakim DG)
PUTRAJAYA: Internal Security Act detainee Raja Petra Kamaruddin will have to undergo religious rehabilitation at the Kamunting Detention Centre.
Islamic Development Department (Jakim) director-general Datuk Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abdul Aziz said the programme was aimed at enabling the faster release of Muslim detainees.
He said Jakim was working closely with the police in carrying out the programme.
"We look forward to the speedier release of detainees after undergoing religious rehabilitation."
Raja Petra, the Malaysia Today editor, was detained under Section 8 (1) of the ISA on Tuesday for writing articles that were considered to have maligned Islam and were malicious and seditious.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar had said after the blogger's detention that his articles may have aroused anger among Muslims.
Speaking after the department's monthly gathering, Wan Mohamad Sheikh said cooperation with the police would be intensified to make the programme more effective.
On the warning by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department to anyone protesting over the use of loudspeakers for the azan (call for prayer) at mosques, Wan Mohamad Sheikh said people should remember the position of Islam in the Federal Constitution as the country's official religion.
"Whatever actions they want to take must be in accordance with the spirit of the Constitution. Together with the relevant authorities such as the Home Ministry, we can take action against those who delve into the sensitivity of Muslims based on the laws.
"If this issue arose due to a misunderstanding, then we should adopt a harmonious approach in addressing it."
Selangor Islamic Religious Department director Datuk Mohammed Khusrin Munawi was reported to have directed nazir (mosque official) and mosque committees in Selangor to continue with the practice of using loudspeakers.

It has to be One or the Other.

From the above, it is I presume, crystal clear to every Good Muslim,
who's lying, & who needs the Rehabilitation here.

Selamat Berpuasa, my Muslim Brothers.
