Reverse decision, charge Ibrahim Ali

Posted: 10 Oct 2014 09:06 PM PDT

DAP Sarawak expresses deep regrets and disapproval over the reply given by the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Nancy Shukri, that the threat to burn Bible in Malay-language is not a crime as it was in defence of Islam.

It is especially shocking to receive such a Parliamentary answer from a Minister coming from Sarawak, where different religions are practiced freely in different languages and there is no conflicts between the followers of different religions.

Has Nancy Shukri forgotten where she comes from or is she just carrying out the biddings of her UMNO masters mindlessly?

In Sarawak, many of the churches conduct their congregations, especially the Dayak congregation, in Bahasa Malaysia and the Bibles used were printed in Bahasa Malaysia.  The existence of Bibles in BM has never been seen as a threat to Islam. 

Even more so, many of the Muslims political leaders in Sarawak went through the missionary schools education and they were exposed to Christian prayers and teaching throughout their school-life and yet they still remain Muslims.

The notion of having a Bible in Bahasa Malaysia poses a threat to Islam is itself an incredulous notion.  And to threaten to burn Bible in Bahasa Malaysia because it is treated as a threat to Islam is utter religious extremist and most unacceptable in our country.

For the Government to allow such threats to be made and still try to justify the act for the offender, it just shows that the Government has no respect for the other religions and that the Government has no intention to uphold the provisions of the Constitution when it comes to the freedom to practice any religion by non-Muslims.

We DAP Sarawak therefore call upon the Government to review its decision not to prosecute Ibrahim Ali because by condoning Ibrahim Ali's action, the Government is actually encouraging religious extremism amongst the Muslims. Such encouragement by the Government will ultimately lead to religious conflicts and disharmony in Malaysia.

不提控依布拉欣,政府怂恿极端主义。

Posted: 10 Oct 2014 08:31 PM PDT

(古晋10日讯)民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员严厉谴责国阵怂恿依布拉欣阿里发表焚烧马来文圣经的言论。

日前,首相署部长南希苏克里在国会下议院回答林冠英的提问中表示,政府将不会以煽动罪名提控依布拉欣阿里发表"焚烧马来圣经"的言论,因为,依布拉欣发表该言论是在捍卫伊斯兰教。

张健仁表示惊讶,南希苏克里是来自砂拉越,她应该非常清楚,依布拉欣的"焚烧马来圣经"的言论,极度的伤害和侮辱基督徒。尤其是在砂拉越,许多达雅族基督徒都是以马来语进行祈祷仪式,而他们的圣经也是以马来文为主。

"难道南希苏克里忘记她来自砂拉越,或是她只是盲目的在跟随她的巫统老板?"

张健仁指出,从建国至今,马来文的圣经从来就不曾被视为"威胁伊斯兰教"。砂拉越有许多马来政治人物,都是毕业于教会学校。他们中小学时期,都有接触到基督教的祈祷和圣经,但是他们至今还是回教徒,也不见他们变成基督教徒。

张氏说,"马来文圣经的存在对伊斯兰教是一种威胁"的言论本身就是一个不可思议的论调。那些以这种论调为由,公开呼吁焚烧马来文圣经的人士,根本就是宗教极端主义者。这种言论和思维是不能容于马来西亚。

张氏表示,国阵政府不只允许依布拉欣阿里这类宗教极端的言论,更替它合理化和合法化。这证明,国阵政府根本就没有尊重其他宗教,也证明国阵政府根本没有顾及其他非穆斯林宗教自由的宪法权力。


张健仁呼吁政府重新检讨"不提控依布拉欣"的立场,因为这立场意味着国阵政府怂恿甚至鼓励穆斯林持有宗教极端主义。这最终将导致宗教之间的冲突及影响国家的和谐。
