While Dr Asri has been well respected, indeed even by non Muslim, his disdain for Hindu Indians has been known in which he expressed his dislike for Thaipusam processions particularly the rites of breaking coconuts which unfortunately has tainted his otherwise fair disposition.
His recent poem against cows worshippers (or what he claimed to be the Modi government) could only confirm his disdain of Hindus and their beliefs, and where his expressions were also in defence of an Indian national who is wanted by his own government for alleged terrorist-related activities.
How could a man wanted by his own government for terrorist-telated activities and where the charges carried non bailable terms be worthy of defending.
Besides that bloke is a foreigner. And why refer to him as "one of our preachers"?
It's not unlike some people who continue to defend Osama or who believe Malaysian notorious terrorist-bomber Dr Azahari is lily-white innocent or a good man.
A mass murderer innocent? Then I nust be the Shahanshah of Perlis.
We all have our own religious beliefs but to ignorantly term Hindus as cow worshippers is simplistic and shallow, ignoring the cultural, historical, agro-economic and social significance of the cow in Indian communities. It's like labelling followers of another religion as worshippets of a black stone or 2 crossed pieces of wood.
People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
