Welcome to Ketuanan Islam (Supremacy of Islam) in Malaysia

PREAMBLE TO THE FEDERAL CONSTITUTION OF MALAYSIA (2013)*
There is no God but the God of Islam, and the Court is his Herald.
All religions must be subject to the supremacy of Islam.
All citizens are equal but Muslims are more equal than others.

Cut to the chase, the Court of Appeal judgment released on 14/10/2013(No.W-01-1-2010) which prohibits Christians from using the word Allah is based on the supremacy of Islam in Malaysia. The judges identify “the community” as Muslim and relegate other religious believers to “group”.  Since “group” is inferior and subordinate to the superior “community”, the judges ruled, “the welfare of an individual or group must yield to that of the community.”

The Appeal Court media summary statement section [6], which is a verbatim citation from the judgment written by judge Mohd Apandi section [48] reads,

“In the circumstances and the facts of the case we are also mindful of the Latin maxims of “salus populi suprema lax” (the safety
of the people is the supreme law) and “salus republicae suprema lax” (the safety of the state is the supreme law) do co-exist and relevant to the doctrine that the welfare of an individual or group must yield to that of the community. It is also our reading that this is how the element of “in peace and harmony” in Article 3(1) is to be read with the freedom of religion in Article 11(1) of the Federal Constitution.”

Today, it is the word Allah. Tomorrow it will be the offensive smell of roasted pork in the neighborhood. Finally, Christians may not display the cross or teach the doctrine of the Trinity since it is offensive to Muslims.

Are we on the slippery slide toward the Blasphemy Law?

This is the consequence of unnoticed backdoor Islamization of the law via legislation by the State Legislative Assembly, Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN).  The strategy of the government is: quietly pass shariah-compliant State laws which include an obscure clause to empower Muslim authorities to act against non-Muslim communites. Bide its time and act when the machinery is in place. Ensure the Federal Court Muslim judges interpret the Federal Constitution in the spirit of Ketuanan Islam.

You are now required to pledge allegiance to the Federal Constitution duly interpreted in the spirit of Ketuanan Islam:

PREAMBLE TO THE FEDERAL CONSTITUTION OF MALAYSIA (2013)*
There is no God but the God of Islam, and the Court is his Herald.
All religions must be subject to the supremacy of Islam.
All citizens are equal but Muslims are more equal than others.

ACCORDINGLY,
Article 3: Ketuanan Islam in the Federation
(1) Islam is the [supreme] religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practiced  in peace and harmony [that is, they must comply with the sensitivities of Muslims] in any part of the Federation [note that the word Federation includes Sabah and Sarawak].

(4) Nothing in this Article derogates from any other provision of this Constitution [except for the purpose of confirming the supremacy of Islam].

Article 8. Equality
(1) All persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law, [but Muslims are more equal and entitled to more protection of the law].

Article 10. Freedom of speech, assembly and association
(1) Subject to the above provisions,
(a) every citizen has the right to freedom of speech and expression [subject to the limits defined by the Court in the interest of the sensitivity, dignity and supremacy of Islam].

God IS GREAT

*This final version renders haram and nullifies the Federal Constitution of version 1957 and 1963

    THE ISLAMIST SUPREMACIST FORCES IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE SHOWN THEMSELVES TO BE MORE EXTREMIST THAN THEIR FOUNDING PROPHET WHO HAD SAID TO CHRISTIANS IN Q. 29:46, “…WE BELIEVE IN THE REVELATION THAT HAS COME DOWN TO US AND IN THAT WHICH CAME DOWN TO YOU; OUR GOD (ALLAH) AND YOUR GOD (ALLAH) IS ONE…”; AND HAD NEVER EVER PROHIBITED CHRISTIANS FROM USING THE NAME ALLAH. AND IT SEEMS MALAYSIA WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE CHAMPION OF ISLAMIC ‘MODERATION’ IS THE ONLY ISLAMIC/ MUSLIM MAJORITY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT IS DOING THIS KIND OF INCREDIBLE, LUDICROUS, OBSCURANTIST, AND EXTREMIST SORT OF THING. IF THE ‘CHAMPION OF MODERATION’ IS LIKE THIS, WHAT HOPE IS THERE FOR ANY JUST AND MEANINGFUL DIALOGUE/ RELATIONS BETWEEN MUSLIMS AND NON-MUSLIMS!? IT IS ALL FRUSTRATION, SHAME AND DISGRACE!

    Latin maxims may sound intellectually savvy but not necessary appropriate. Of course is important to consider the safety of the people. In this case, is the judge referring to Christians’ safety? If yes, then is the judge inferring that some muslims are wild in terrorising the Christians if the word ‘Allah’ is not banned? In that case, the legal enforcer must all the more apply “salus populi suprema lax” by arresting those potential trouble makers, detain them under the new PCA. Otherwise, such maxim is wrongly applied and the minority have to become a sacrificial lamb for the sake of peace and harmony due to an unfounded fear and confusion?

    Kam Weng, you are indeed prophetic with your question, ‘Are we on the slippery road to the blasphemy law ?’ I agree with you that many more difficulties are coming and one of them is “Allah is Lord and not Jesus Christ’.These are all very familiar stresses and it may be timely to remind ourselves of the Apostle Peter alert : do not be surprised by these things !
