This morning I posted Terengganu born-again morality, but for what? where I lambasted the Terengganu state government for resorting to a holier-than-thou campaign to out-PAS PAS.
Reader mich asked why I had referred to the term ‘born-again’ – well mich, it’s a poke in the eye at UMNO’s hypocrisy when it comes to agama because that party is more about bangsa.
I also criticised AAB for quietly condoning the State government’s nonsensical snoop squad because reading the Star Online’s report, which stated AAB rang up Idris Jusoh, the Terengganu MB, about the Mat Skoding squad, he failed to make a statement condemning the stupid oppressive peeping tom idea.
I wonder why he had not maintained the same standard of demanding a dismantling of the snoop squad as he had done with the Malacca and FT people.
Looks like I have to eat my words, because AAB has just commented that the use of spies by religious authorities to catch couples engaging in activities deemed ‘immoral’ would be tantamount to invasion of privacy.
He wants Malaysian religious authorities to concern themselves with far more important and urgent issues facing the Muslim community.
Firstly, I apologise to AAB for being too hasty in criticising him. I am not even going to get out of the apology by arguing that he could have been far more responsive. What he has done is good.
Therefore, secondly I congratulate him for making the right statement about correct prioritisation by the religious authorities and respect for the privacy of individuals.
Aiyah, gimme some tauyu and pepper please.
