MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek must apologise for his condescending remarks against Islam, said president of the Muslim lawyers association Zainul Rijal Abu Bakar.

The syariah lawyer said this after Chua’s remarks against PAS’ candidate for the Tenang by-election Normala Sudirman were echoed by several fellow MCA leaders, who zeroed in on her disinclination against shaking the hands of men as she makes her campaign rounds.

Chua had on Thursday warned the Chinese community against “this kind of Islamic values”.

This was followed by Deputy Trade Cooperative and Consumer Affairs Minister Tan Lian Hoe (below, shaking hands) who this morning condemned Normala over the same matter.

“This is the most basic thing… Not only men, but when she shakes hands with women, she also needs to wear glove. This is not friendly. It’s as if she thinks our hands are dirty,” said the Gerakan Wanita leader.

“I hope the Chinese voters are careful. We are very worried about the Islamic state. They want to implement an extremist Islamic state,” she added.

“The issue of shaking hands between non-mahram (family member) men and women should not be made a political issue by any quarters.

“It is a religious injunction that men and women who are non-mahram cannot touch each other, and this is not a new thing. I myself will not extend my hand out to a woman who is not mymahram,” said Zainul.

“Not shaking hands with persons of the opposite gender is not a disability. On the contrary, it reflects the strength of principles held by that person,” he said.

“For Muslims, it is a matter of common knowledge that men and women who are not mahram should not touch each other. It is only those who pick and choose from Islam that do not put it into practice,” Zainul Rijal said further.

At a press conference earlier today, Normala (above) said the remarks of BN leaders about the issue reflect their failure to understand Muslim manners.

 

dipetik dari: Harakahdaily
KUALA LUMPUR, 21 Jan: Kenyataan Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek yang menyindir alaman biasa cara wanita Islam bersalam di tempat awam mendapat kritikan keras daripada pembaca Harakahdaily di Facebook dan Twitter.

Kebanyakan pembaca yang mengkritik turut membuat perbandingan dengan kes Chua yang ditangkap melakukan hubungan jenis dengan seorang rakan wanitanya dalam sebuah video yang telah menyebabkan beliau terpaksa melepaskan jawatan kabinet dan partinya sebelum menjadi Presiden MCA pada tahun lepas.

“Anda adalah orang yang membuat penilaian terhadap orang yang tidak bersalam. Apakah penilaian kita terhadap seorang yang telah melakukan zina,” tanya seorang peguam, Syahredzan Johan di Twitter.

Beliau turut berpendapat bahawa bekas Menteri Kesihatan itu tidak harus membuat sebarang penilaian moral ketika orang lain boleh menyoalkan kompas moralnya sendiri.

Chua sekali lagi mencetuskan kontroversi mengenai Islam apabila beliau secara sindiran membuat perbandingan cara calon PAS di Tenang, Normala Sudirman bersalaman dengan Presiden PKR Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail semasa berkempen di Tenang.

“Dia tidak akan datang ke sini (tokong Cina), (dan) dia langsung tidak bersalam dengan orang. Saya sudah terima aduan mengenai hal ini.

“Dia seperti isteri Anwar Ibrahim. Dia memakai sarung tangan ketika bersalam. Jika anda boleh menerima cara Islam sebegini, pergilah undi PAS,” Chua dipetik sebagai berkata di Malaysiakini.

Tahun lepas, Chua juga secara jahilnya mengatakan bahawa negara-negara yang paling korup adalah mereka dari kalangan majoriti Muslim, akan tetapi beliau memberikan contoh negara Ethiopia yang mempunyai majoriti Kristian dalam hujahnya.

Pada November lepas, Chua sekali lagi cuba mencetuskan isu untuk membelasah PAS dengan kejahilannya apabila mempersoalkan mengapa kebanyakan kedai di Kota Bharu tutup sempena sambutan Aidil Adha walaupun sememangnya umum diketahui bahawa sambutan Hari Raya Haji di Kelantan dan beberapa negeri lain adalah jauh lebih meriah berbanding Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Menurut Haji Ismail Basar, yang memberikan komennya terhadap Chua di Facebook Harakahdaily, beliau bersimpati dengan manusia seperti Chua kerana tiada parti komponen dalam Barisan Nasional yang mampu menerangkan perbezaan ajaran Tuhan dengan ajaran buatan manusia.

“Dia ingat dia tahu semua benda, padahalnya dia sangat naif mengenai dasar-dasar asas Islam… nak harap dalam component nak educate pun, 2 x 5… tak tahu mana satu hukum datang dari Tuhan, dan yang mana satu buatan manusia,” sindir Ismail.

Dalam pada itu, seorang pembaca bernama Anuar Azahari menuding jari pada Umno dengan mengatakan bahawa “Umno bertanggungjawab ke atas sikap ahli-ahli MCA ke atas Islam kerana mereka mendidik MCA dengan dakwah yang tidak betul sehinggakan mereka sanggup mengeluarkan kata-kata demikian terhadap Islam dengan hukum-hukumnya.”

“Jika Umno membiarkan Chua Soi Lek ini meneruskan juga cakap-cakap serupa ini dan Umno membiarkannya untuk memancing undi orang-orang bukan Islam, maka Umno berdosa kerana membiarkan rakan seperjuangannya menghina Islam,” tulis beliau di Facebook Harakahdaily.

Kalau hukumnya sudah menetapkan haram bagi lelaki perempuan yang bukan mahram bersalaman atau bersentuhan maka ianya tetap haram. Pengecualian memang ada – tetapi untuk bertemu pengundi tidak termasuk dalam pengecualian tersebut.

Ini kenalah difahami oleh sekalian mereka yang galak berpolitik yang sudah lama hidup dalam masyarakat Malaysia yang perlembagaannya mengatakan Islam agama Persekutuan. Untuk Soi Lek mengatakan tidak tahu itu amatlah “naive” sebagai ahli politik yang sudah “matang” serta mengetuai sebuah parti yang besar. Jika ia bertujuan untuk memanipulasi isu itu maka Soi Lek berniat jahat.

Bagi sahabat-sahabat beliau dalam komponen BN, ahli politik beragama Islam, janganlah pula nanti melatah dengan menyongsang fatwa atas sebab untuk keterbukaan. Haram itu tetap haram!

Sewajarnya dan berani jika para pemimpin Islam dalam parti seperti UMNO menyahut prinsip yang dipegang oleh seorang Muslimah demi menjaga maruah dan adab susila anutannya. Mereka harus membetulkan kesilapan besar Soi Lek kerana mempersoalkan seorang Muslimah menegakkan prinsipnya. Ianya satu penghinaan secara langsung terhadap agama Islam.

Jangan pula kita mempersoalkan prinsip seorang Muslimah dalam pada masa yang sama kita tidak mempertikaikan isu moral orang yang mempertikaikan prinsip seorang Muslimah itu.

Haram tetap haram!

Terlanjur berbicara bab haram, sayugianya ingin saya tambah berhubung dengan laporan dalam kebanyakkan akhbar beberapa hari lalu yang menyiarkan berita orang ramai berebut mengutip syiling yang bertaburan di lebuhraya. Haram itu tetap haram. Lebih sedih lagi, sepatutnya kita yang membantu mengutip untuk diserahkan kepada “mangsa” bukannya kita memangsakan lagi mangsa kemalangan itu.

Begitu jugalah apabila kita mentertawakan orang yang menerima nasib malang. Mungkin kerana terlalu banyak menonton “Mr. Bean” – hinggakan kejahatan Mr. Bean itu boleh menggelikan hati kita walhal sepatutnya hati kita mengatakan kesian dan bingkas membantu.

Chua Soi Lek! If you do not know nuts about Islam, please shut the hell up and go study!

I am utterly disgusted to hear of Chua Soi Lek, the MCA President badmouth the PAS candidate for Tenang, about her not shaking hands with people, etcetera.

“Normala will not come here to a Chinese temple, she doesn’t even shake hands with the people. I have received complaints about this. She is like Anwar Ibrahim’s wife. She wears gloves when she shakes hands. If you can accept this kind of Islamic value, go ahead and vote for PAS,”
MCA President Chua Soi Lek.

For all the years that he has been living here in Malaysia, what the hell has he been doing, not knowing that in Islam, it is forbidden for opposite sexes to touch one another when they are not related by blood?

Sure, there is no compulsion for a kaffir to study and learn about Al-Islam, the only revealed faith and Way of Life for all Mankind from Allah the Almighty, but then given the reality that we here in Malaysia live in a multi-ethnic, multi-faithed country, awareness of the do’s and don’ts of our fellow Malaysians from differing backgrounds should be a must for anyone who is in politics!

Especially when one is the President of the Malaysian Chinese Association, one of the three major political parties in the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition of the Federal Malaysian Government!

Such ignorance of what is forbidden and what is allowable in the faith of the majority of citizens here in Malaysia is just quite unbecoming for someone like Chua Soil’ed Lek!

Yes, we are all aware of Mr.Chua’s extra marital scandal where he was literally caught committing adultery and the video became viral globally. But then again, since Mr.Chua isn’t a Muslim, and living in a country that just gives lip service to the actual Syariah Laws of Almighty Allah, he is still very well alive and going about badmouthing others who are just exercising their rights to live according to the dictates of their faith, unlike Mr.Chua, our former ‘randy andy’ Health Minister.

We who are Muslims actually do not bother too much about the affairs of those who aren’t our fellow Believers in Allah the Most Glorious, Supreme Creator of us all. What more when it concerns the extramarital affairs of Kaffirs like Mr.Chua Soi Lek! You can go do what you wish for all I care, sir! But when you touch on my religion, I take offense. Serious offense, mind you .. and we don’t care as to who the hell you are or think of yourself!

PAS Candidate Cikgu Normala Sudirman

You can say this or that about people but when you start badmouthing our faith of Al Islam without cause, then you are just asking for it! You can consider yourself lucky in the sense that we have a very sluggish and irresponsible Home Minister who can just muster a whimper every now and then and issue warnings after useless warnings!

What you have done Mr.Chua is blasphemy! You have committed blasphemy against our faith when you mocked the modesty of our fellow Muslim. I don’t differentiate between members of any of our political parties. When you insult the PAS candidate for Tenang, you insult a member of our Muslim ummah.

I take offense to that. If you do not apologize to her over this grievous slur that you have uttered against her as a Muslim woman who was just following the norms and principles of our Islamic faith, then I will lodge a police report against you! This is just one case. There are other instances where you have insulted Islam which I will follow up upon very soon.


You have a week in notice to apologize, failing which I will head to the nearest District Police Headquarters and do my Muslim duty!

Unlike the apostate Badrul Hisham @ Benjamin Stephen who has gone into hiding, you Mr.Chua Soi Lek aren’t in the same position, are you?

I don’t care about the sluggishness of our JAKIM, JAIS, JAWI and all the other JA’s, I take serious offense at this insult that you have uttered against one of our Muslim sisters.

You Mr.Chua aren’t exactly a shining beacon or public icon to be heralded for the very simple reason of your track record as far as good morals are concerned, even for a Kaffir!

Just to share with you what you have obviously not bothered to study Mr.Chua, here is what the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam has to guide those of us who are Muslims with regard to the subject of not shaking hands with those to whom we are not married to or are not our blood relatives, something which has definitely escaped your attention:
