Half a million fatwas, but how many are worthy?

From the Malay Mail Online (extracts):

Perak mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria has urged Muslim MPs across the political divide to give their support to PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s Private Member’s Bill, claiming it is compulsory for Muslims to do so.

Malaysiakini - Mufti raps infidel label after 'bury Azizah in Chinese cemetery' jab (extracts):

Penang mufti Wan Salim Wan Mohd Noor has criticised the act of labelling fellow Muslims who disagree with PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's Private Member's Bill as infidels.

This was after Padang Serai PAS chief Shaharuddin Ibrahim said in a sermon that Opposition Leader Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail would have to be buried in a non-Muslim cemetery if she did not support the amendment to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965, or Act 355.

"I am saddened there are certain religious leaders in the country who conveniently label other Muslims as infidels simply because of disagreements over the Private Member's Bill to strengthen the syariah court," 

In the statement, disseminated by Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (Abim), Wan Salim said while the matter was important, the proposed amendment has yet to be finalised and would only be tabled in Parliament by Hadi, who is also Marang MP, at the October sitting.

He said Parliament should be allowed to discuss the matter and formulate a law that is just to all citizens.

"We should not force any MP to accept the Act 355 amendment bill by all means including threats that their faith would be affected.

"It is compulsory for Muslims to accept Allah's laws, which are sacred, but the Act 355 amendment bill is not Allah's law."Wan Salim said in a statement today.

Who should we believe, the fucking-on-top-of-the camel's-back ulama who cowardly blamed a woman Raja Sherina for his seditious misdeed when the chips were down (but promoted to a Tan Sri) or a brave Penangite, wakakaka?

My visitor Hasan has been correct when he alluded to half a million fatwas in the Islamic world of which only a handful have been worthy. We can include that fuck-on-top-of-camel lover as another bullshitter.


  1. One of The most infamous Fatwas was Ayatollah Khomeini's "Death Fatwa" which called for the killing of Salman Rushdie , the author of the "Satanic Verses".

    That was a Novel which tells a tale of Satan providing some of the Verses , which subsequently came to be built into the Quran.

    Salman Rushdie may have been crass and disrespectful when he wrote the "Satanic Verses" book, but The "Death Fatwa" caused a lot of damage to the image of Islam in the West.

    A Muslim "Holy Man" ordering the death of a person is an Evil Act, no matter how you spin it.

    1. Ayatollah Khomeini's death verdict on Salman Rushdie (who left Islam) is acceptable only to about 12 per cent of the Shia Muslims. BTW the sunni Muslims did not accept his death verdict.

  2. the private member's bill - adakah dia telah baca kandungan

  3. Have a read;

    Decades of zombie indoctrination get u to the current stage of mentality.

    In the olden days, when Islam had not been radicalised, u got the followers just live & let live - insaf Allah!

    Now, u have many wannabes, playing demi-gods, to 'decree' their interpretations & often times their own fantasies, about their Allah's words!

    The saddest part is many followed, as no proof is required in the understanding of their faith.

    Even many of the educated one follow through blindly, chasing their hereafter 'virgin' dreams.

    Nothing wrong if they dug their own hole underneath the tempurung & buried themselves in.

    The problems arise when they extend their twisted altruistic thoughts to covet others, within &/or without their belief's influence.

    Makes one REALLY ponder what these peoples r.

  4. BTW, I've sat on the back of a Bactrian camel before.
    Definitely more stable ride than sitting on the back of an Arabian camel.

    Can't make any assessment on any other activities attempted on the back of a camel, though..
