PAS: Sarawak Christian missionaries unhappy with our Islamic mission

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 9:01 PM

Riduan-Mohamad-Noor A PAS central committee member said the party was actively preaching Islam to Sarawak’s rural communities, to the point that it has created unhappiness among Christian missionaries in the state.

“PAS activists are at the forefront of Islamic propagation in rural Sarawak, so much so it has raised protest from Christian missionaries,” said Riduan Mohamad Noor, writing in party organ Harakahdaily.

Riduan’s comments were made in conjunction with the Islamist party’s 20th anniversary celebration of being in the state.

The party’s top leaders, including president, Abdul Hadi Awang, were also present for the celebrations in Kuching on Saturday.

Riduan said PAS activists in rural areas had to face stringent vetting including intimidation by civil servants.

Sarawak’s multi-ethnic demography and wide public skepticism of peninsula-based political parties were among the challenges faced by PAS to spread its influence, he said.

In the run-up to the Sarawak state elections last May, Hadi had said PAS would only accept a Bumiputera Muslim to head the state.

Earlier this year, Hadi incurred the wrath of Christian groups in Sarawak when he said that after being rejected by the educated in the West, Christian missionaries were actively engaged in proselytisation in Sarawak using money and other forms of aid.

Muslims make up a little more than 32 per cent of Sarawak’s population of 2.6 million, while 40 per cent are Christians.

PAS has never won a seat in Sarawak. In the last state elections, it contested 11 seats.

  1. Pas is a poor party ruling Kelantan but where does the party get the money to fund their unwelcome activities in rural sarawak?
    They are buying converts and earn commosions base on the number if converts they bought.
    So is that true conversions or artificial conversion due to rampant poverty in rural sarawak.
    And again the unlimited source of their fund is in question?

    The bigger danger of hudud to Non-Muslims.

    I’ve highlighted some potential indirect consequences of hudud to non-Muslims in my previous post. Now this is a bigger one.
    It opens a question as to whether the country is a secular or an Islamic country in practice. Why is this dangerous? Because it may pave the way to bigger and crazier things to happen such as how we officially treat non-Muslims.
    In a typical Islamic country under Islamic administration, the non-Muslims are divided into a few categories:
    1) Kafir harbi fi’lan: These are non-Muslims that are physically hostile (waging war) against Islamic countries.
    It’s a requirement for Muslims to kill them (as announced by Pahang Mufti recently). Killing kafir harbi fi’lan will not result in any punishment for the Muslim killer.
    2) Kafir harbi hukman: These are non-Muslims that do not have any privilege of protection in an Islamic country and they are not waging war against an Islamic country.
    Killing kafir harbi hukman doesn’t bring death punishment to a Muslim but only half of a diyya (compensation to the family). This was backed by a Hadith, where Abu Juhaifa reported: “The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, judged that a believer should not be killed for killing a disbeliever.” Sahih Bukhari 6517 in context of kafir harbi hukman.
    3) Kafir muahid and dzimmi: They are non-Muslims who have protection agreement with an Islamic administration. Muahids are not citizens of the Islamic country but have peace agreements. Dzimmis are citizens and pay jizyahs (a form of tax or protection money).
    It is haram to kill these types of non-Muslims. Many Hadiths protecting them. Also backed by Quran 9:29 “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
    Oh wait, dzimmis are bound under hudud laws 🙂 jeng jeng jeng!!
    PAS are just saying their hudud won’t apply to non-Muslims to get the bill passed by the parliament. In history, hudud applies to all. Look at Acheh.
    4) Kafir musta’min: Non-Muslim tourists with permission to be in the country. In modern world, Non-Muslims with Visa to be in the country. These Non-Muslims are protected until they become a harbi, even a harbi hukman.. let’s say stupid Australians wearing our flags on their arses and being seen as a threat to peace?
    In practical, most non-Muslims in Malaysia will be classified as dzimmis (you pay taxes). What if you don’t? You become a hukman; can be killed but Muslim killer will have to compensate your family with half a diyya. What if you raise up voices against certain Islamic bodies? Will you be considered as harbi fi’lan? (Pahang Mufti already did) So basically, you’re dead.
    This is why it’s important for Malaysia to remain secular in administration. Letting hudud bill to pass will open bigger Pandora’s box.
    To my Muslim friends, do we really want this for our non-Muslim friends? Why do we have to create hell on earth in our selfish pursuit of heaven?

    Share this so more non-Muslims will know and more Muslims to see the bigger perspectives.
