You And Your Religion

"Wahai orang-orang yang beriman, hendaklah kamu semua sentiasa menjadi orang-orang yang menegakkan keadilan kerana Allah, lagi menerangkan kebenaran; dan jangan sekali-kali kebencian kamu terhadap sesuatu kaum itu mendorong kamu kepada tidak melakukan keadilan. Hendaklah kamu berlaku adil (kepada sesiapa jua) kerana sikap adil itu lebih hampir kepada taqwa. Dan bertaqwalah kepada Allah, sesungguhnya Allah Maha Mengetahui dengan mendalam akan apa yang kamu lakukan." 
Al Maaidah 5:8

MAIS and JAIS has to stop thinking that they are hired by GOD, and being above the law just because of what they believe. Islam is the official religion in this country, but it is not the law. Islam asks us all to respect other religions and not acting like a mafia, using its name to influence other Muslims in this country to support their action, under the pretext of protecting the sanctity of Islam.
To think that a country where 61.3% of its people are Muslims, where all levels of leadership are being hold by Muslims, where all the Sultans are Muslims; are easily being converted to Christianity by 9.2% of Christians in this country is an allegation that is illogical, irrational and unjustifiable.
Plus it doesn't show any trust all towards Muslims in this country as having keimanan that is solid and faithfulness that is not as easy to break.
And if they do, it is because of you and those people who think, act and speaks like you do, like gangsters, especially in social media, as if being a Muslim gave them the right to be a self righteous, a big bully, and do whatever they please or say whatever they like, while degrading other religions until it becomes unattractive, filled with hatred and look upon in disgust to be part of their lives anymore.
And what we've seen so far, is an act, an example of patience, shown not by the religious majority, by those who are being treated unfairly, who never meant to cause any problems and who like us, wanted things back to normal, as it was, before all these arguments started, by those few, who tried to fulfill their lust for power and control.
How could a Muslim or even a non Muslim for that fact, show his or her respect towards an Islamic body who doesn't show respect towards others. Especially one representing Islam.

A Liberal.
