Anti-Constitution Advocates

Opposition leaders have proven themselves to the advocates of anti-Consitution over and over again. They systematically and progressively intensify their attacks either against the administration, provisions and practice of Islam and the relationship of Malay values and norms in their arguments of all sorts of ‘universally correct’ excuses.

Lawyers for the Muslim dog handler have expressed shock at what Jakim had to say about the controversy, calling it “unlawful”.

Yesterday, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom announced that Jakim has found that the YouTube clip of Maznah Mohd Yusof and her three dogs which went viral online was insulting to Muslims.

He had directed the Muslim authority to relay its findings to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for further action.

Maznah’s lawyers, Latheefa Koya and N. Surendran, responded that Jakim had no authority to issue such a statement, noting that it had brazenly and unlawfully interfered with the judiciary system.

They criticised Jamil Khir for supporting Jakim’s stand on the issue and for threatening to go to the MCMC with their declaration, saying that his actions showed that he was “ignorant and indifferent” to the roles of Jakim.

“Jakim has acted beyond its authority and in excess of its jurisdiction,” they said in a statement today.

“In this country only the judiciary has the power to pronounce the guilt or innocence of a citizen,” they said, adding that Jakim was merely an administrative body with no powers to make such a statement.

Calling for an end to the attacks on their client, Latheefa and Surendran warned that they would be taking the “necessary action” to protect Maznah’s rights.

Maznah,  better known as Chetz, found herself in hot soup after the three-year-old video clip caused a stir among Muslims.

She was arrested on Thursday and was released yesterday after being held at the Segamat police station and is being investigated under the Penal Code for causing disharmony among religions. – August 3, 2013

****************

The fact is that dog trainer Maznah did insult the sanctity of Islam by portraying her K9 animals with the background of Hari Raya takbir. Hari Raya Aidil Fitri and Aidil Adha are Muslims most revered holidays, to celebrate triumph of fulfilling Islam’s third and fifth pillars, the month of fasting in Ramadan and Hajj in Zulhijjah.

So was when earlier in this Islam holiest month of Ramadan when Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Joseph Marino’s deemed political support for Christian Federation of Malaysia’s quest to use the word ‘Allah’ in place of God. Also sexebitionist bloggers Alvin Tan’s and Vivian Lee’s insulting ‘Selamat Menyambut Ramadan’ posting in Facebook by portraying a meal of Bah Kut Teh.

Jabatan Hak Ehwal Kemajuan Islam (JAKIM) opined that since the Youtube recording used the Hari Raya Takbir chants depicting ‘Allah is great’ and call for prayer, it is an insult to Islam.  The Youtube recording is a demonstration that the person in the portrayed in the video is Maznah Mohd. Yusof aka Chetz.

Aidilfitri dog video an insult to Islam, Jakim decides

AUGUST 02, 2013UPDATED: AUGUST 02, 2013 03:06 PM

Screen capture of a YouTube video shows a Muslim woman cleaning the paws of her pet dog.PETALING JAYA, Aug 2 — The Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) has weighed in on the storm over the Aidilfitri dog video and decided it was insult to Islam, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom confirmed today.

The minister in charge of religious affairs said in light of Jakim’s decision, he had directed the department to present its views to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for further action, Malay language daily Berita Harian reported on its website today.

The Communications and Multimedia Ministry had yesterday directed the MCMC to consult with Jakim in its probe on the video, saying this was because the matter involves religious sensitivities.

“The issue raised here could be very sensitive to a majority of our citizens… we must see the background and get views of religious experts because I understand there are several differing views,” minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek told reporters at a function yesterday.

The minister acknowledged that the video was created three years ago but pointed out that once any content is published online it would continue to remain accessible to Internet users.

“The essential and most important part in this case is to investigate the individual’s real intention whether she intends to state her background as an animal trainer or to insult the Muslim religion and such,” he said.

He said that should Jakim deem the video an insult to Islam, the MCMC would then proceed with its probe.

In the 105-second video reposted on YouTube on Tuesday, dog trainer Maznah Mohd Yusof is seen walking and bathing her three dogs as the “Takbir Raya”, or Muslim call to prayer traditionally reserved for the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, plays in the background.

The juxtaposition appeared to be a reference to the wudhu, or ablution performed by Muslims before prayer; dogs are also considered unclean by adherents of the predominant faith in Malaysia.

Maznah has since been arrested and was released from remand in Johor earlier this afternoon on a court bond.

According to her lawyer N. Surendran, the dog trainer has also been questioned by the MCMC.

She is being investigated under section 4 of the Sedition Act and section 298A of the Penal Code.

Section 298A includes a variety offences, namely causing “disharmony, disunity, or feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will, or prejudicing, etc., the maintenance of harmony or unity, on grounds of religion.”

If convicted under Section 298A, Maznah, better known as Chetz Yusof, can be sentenced to a jail term of not less than two years and not more than five years.

After the video started making its rounds on the Internet, local news site Mynewshub.com quoted Chetz as saying that she made the video in 2010 to show that dogs are not “haram” (forbidden) as widely-believed, and that Muslims could keep canines as pets.

“Dogs are not ‘haram’; if they are wet, just ‘samak’,” she was quoted as saying.

“Samak” is the ritual cleansing performed by Muslims when they come into contact with items considered ritually unclean, of which wet dogs are considered to be by some followers of the faith.

Maznah had also told news site Free Malaysia Today in a 2011 interview that she follows the Shafie school of thought in Islam that does not deem dogs as “haram”, but merely requires believers to cleanse themselves after touching a wet dog.

Maznah’s arrest comes after sex bloggers Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee were charged recently under the Penal Code and Sedition Act, for posting a mock “Selamat Berbuka Puasa” (breaking of fast) greeting on their Facebook page that showed them eating “bak kut teh”, a soupy pork dish. Muslims are prohibited from eating pork.

*************

Islam is enshrined as the religion of the Federation of Malaysia and His Majesty Seri Paduka Yang DiPertuan Agong is the Head of Islam for Wilayah Persekutuan, Melaka, Pulau Pinang, Sabah and Sarawak where as HRH Rulers are for the respective states.

JAKIM is a Federal Government agency with the authority for the administration and planning of programs pertaining to Islam and the development of the religion of the Federation. JAKIM did not act up and above its jurisdiction because it is fulfilling its second function and key performance index, which is protecting the sanctity of Islam.

Article 3.1 & 3.2 of the Federal Constitution

Article 3.1 & 3.2 of the Federal Constitution

Attacking the administration of Islam in these non Sultanate states is a symbolic premonition of insulting His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong’s role and authority, as the Head of Islam for Wilayah Persekutuan, Melaka, Pulau Pinang, Sabah and Sarawak via JAKIM. It is defying Article 3.1 and 3.2

That is clear outright Anti-Constitution.

Extending the arguments with manipulation of half truths, skewed interpretation of the Federal Constitution, deception and even fabricating lies are necessary in the Opposition’s game to attract negative perspective and attention, especially from the international community. The majority would be painted as denying the rights and oppressing the minority.

Although presented out of the ambit from the limitations defined for Muslims are per the Federal Constitution such as individuals in the excuse of exercising their right, they are being interpreted as ‘being oppressed by the unjust system that violates the principle of basic human rights’.

That is realising the Opposition’s strategy of ‘Politics of Hatred’ where all authorities and law enforcement agencies which is controlled by Malay-Muslim officers are being systematically and consistently attacked and demonised. This is to create the public distrust against these agencies.

This is long term objective for the minority strategic plan to over power the majority. As for now, they should be expected no less than their will continued provocations.

  1. Dogs are ok. But when you do such acts, you are provoking those who are not in the know.

    Very few Muslims in malaysia have any grasp on the idea and concepts of dogs across the 4 schools of thoughts.

    And being offended is subjective. I was not offended by the video but i have to question her motives behind it.

    Did she genuinely did not expect backlash? Or is she just stupid. Looks like a closeted homo too btw.

    So to chetz, what did you expect? You could have left out the takbir. Then i think the backlash wouldnt be this shit stirring,

    So did u do it in genuine belief to enlighten people, or you just had a dildo stuck in your ass u homo?

  2. Defending in the tone these PKR Anti-Rukun Negara/Anti-Perpaduan advocates of anarchy & chaos, is realising the KPI or their SOP. They pounce on any slightest opportunity to thrash and demonise the Police!

    They are the sort of irresponsible if not malicious lawyers with seditious intent, who accused 1620 detainees died in police lock-up between 2003-7.

    It is probably what their foreign paymasters paid them to do.

    They should be arrested for obstructing justice, as they sensationalise investigations with the tone & connotation for the public to hate authorities.

    Had this Pengkid used Bahamen’s ‘Who Let The Dogs Out?’ instead of Takbir Raya, I am willing to bet no Melayu will bother. Its unnatural for an average Melayu to not be accommodating & attack others without provocations.

  3. Memang tugas Jakim dan DS Jamil Khir menegur sesuatu perkara menyalahi peraturan Islam. Mereka bertindak bagi pihak Yang Di Pertuan Agong yang berfungsi mengetuai Agama Islam Di Malaysia.

    Pihak bertanggungjawab (di atas) boleh di kategorikan menyalahi undang-undang? Boleh di saman? Undang-Undang Sivil atau Syariah? Atau memang sudah termaktub dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia seperti paparan artikel masih di pertikaikan?

    Pendapat saya :-

    1. Jika si pelaku video faham tentang ” fitrah” maka dia tidak akan melanggar dan menghina perintah Allah SWT. Perkara yang begitu menghina “fitrah seluruh umat Islam”. Hari perayaan Islam bukan kegembiraan semata-mata, tetapi ia melibatkan akidah dan keimanan. Ini lah menjadi kemarahan umat Islam terhadap penghinaan tersebut.

    2. Seorang mukmin tidak tegar dan berani melakukan kesalahan sedemikian. Nyata melanggar adab beragama dan sunnah Nabi yang datang nya dari Allah SWT. Malah melanggar adab budaya Melayu yang selama ini amat patuh kepada Islam. Kemungkinan si pelaku video tidak mahir dalam agama Islam, jika itu pengakuan nya. Tetapi seseorang yang berpendidikan, mengapa beliau tidak faham sensitiviti di atas kekasaran perbuatan nya? Tidak pernahkah beliau terdidik dalam ilmu Islam?

    3. Jika beliau mengakui kesilapan nya, memang tugas Jakim mengembalikan beliau ke jalan yang benar. Harus di ingat, insiden ini mesti di siasat ke akar umbi, sekonyong nya terlibat pihak yang mengambil kesempatan menyerang melayu Islam secara bersistematik dan halus.

    4. Cuma saya berasa malu dengan tindakan peguam nya. Sepatut nya mereka lebih bijak menjaga kebaikan kedua-dua pihak. Tidak sampai mengeruhkan keadaan yang semesti nya pihak berwajib lebih berhak menangani perkara ini.

    Ini bukan politik. Ia sama bagaimana anutan agama lain menjaga kesucian agama mereka.

    Jadi kenapa hanya Islam yang di jadikan mangsa, seperti luahan TPM kita ?

  4. To me, the Hari Raya takbir played while washing the dog’s feet is mocking the religion of Islam, therefore seditious under the Sedition Act at least. And is against other laws enacted to administer the religion of Islam which is clearly stated under Article 3 as the religion of the country.

    What irks me is Muslim lawyers going about saying such things as “Jakim had no authority to issue such a statement, noting that it had brazenly and unlawfully interfered with the judiciary system.” I’d like to see Syari’ah lawyers weighing in on these.

    I don’t expect some Muslim lawyers to have Malay values. Even those with the normal Malay names like Anwar Al Juburi tried to talk about ketuanan rakyat instead of Ketuanan Melayu. I regard others with such Al Juburi values also not having Malay values, hopes and aspirations.

  5. *COMMENT DELETED

    This commenter lost his/her privilege to share opinion/thoughts in this blog

  6. Its not all about the law..its about the sensitivity of other people..
    If you dont respect people..who care about your fucking law

    • Wat you talk, Mamat?

      The law is the law. If you no respect the law, better scram from this country.

      Find a country where there is no law. Fair to tell you to scram or not?

  7. Big Dog,

    Many would view this as an irony; the Big Dog attacking parasitic lawyers defending dogs loving LGBTor.

    Then again what is baffling why are the Malays allowed themselves to be push overs when it comes to their faith and norms and values, which is already enshrined in the constitution?

    They hv reduced themselves to be defensive and more pathetically, apologetic when they are being systematically & humiliatingly antagonised?

    Islam is a religion of peace, tolerance & Muslims are required to be accomodating & ‘Love Thy Neighbour’. Then again its duti bound for Muslims to defend the honour of their faith’s sanctity & pride as Muslims.

    When the two clash, it is principled that the righteousness be upheld in the wisdom of what Islam stood for, expectations of a Muslim & the balance of inter-faith harmony.

    They should really go after these incorrigible unbearably annoying ppl & take them of the streets becoz they simply want to cause distrust, disharmony or worse still, anger & rage & conflict between the majority & minority.

    There are laws still available for that such as Sedition Act. The majority ppl should rise & demand that these laws be invoked. More so if the leadership is too lame & pander to popularism.

    No buts! Now or never!
