Pakatan defends hi-budget for JAKIM

Amanah's Mujahid Yusof Rawa is a minister in the PM's Department over-sighting the notorious budget-gluttonous JAKIM.

He amazes human rights lawyer Siti Kassim by his incredible ability to justify JAKIM's RM811 million budget in less than two weeks he has been n office. Siti was wont to say:

“That must be one hell of a record in the review of a major agency. Why do, again and again, Islamists have to prove to us sane Malaysians that they cannot be trusted to do the right thing for the citizens of this nation when it comes to anything labelled Islam?”

Siti also questioned why Mujahid would need to consult the Council of Rulers over the fate of the Malaysian Islamic Strategic Research Institute (Iksim), saying:

“Why do you need to consult the Rulers? It has nothing to do with the Rulers. Iksim is a Sdn Bhd, a think tank propaganda tool of the previous government. Using religion to promote their racist and supremacist agenda and you are keeping it for what? To now do your bidding as well?” 

She said that Mujahid should not be a hypocrite.

Indeed, Iksim had been used as a political tool to attack political dissenters and then-opposition politicians like Mujahid himself. Iksim had labelled them as supporters of liberalism, pluralism, and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) agenda.

So perhaps Mujahid, now in government, realises the power of a religious tool to wallop the current opposition. That was why Siti labelled him a hypocrite.

As we have observed and said, the PH government under Mahathir definitely will be worse than the previous BN government once it learns to master the manipulative tools created by Mahathir like JAKIM and Birotata Negara (the dreaded racist BTN).

This issue came to light from an article in FMT, where Siti Kasim slams Mujahid for defending Jakim’s budget. Extracts of the FMT report follow:

JAKIM consultant Zamihan considers Chinese as unhygienic but whose salary is paid for by those unhygienic Chinese taxpayers

PETALING JAYA: Lawyer and human rights activist Siti Kasim has hit out at newly appointed Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mujahid Yusof Rawa for saying that the RM810.89 million operating budget for the Malaysian Islamic Development Department’s (Jakim) is not bloated.

In a Facebook post, Siti questioned why Jakim’s budget was not slashed when other institutions like hospitals, schools and universities were forced to do with much less due to the country’s financial situation.

She mocked Mujahid for saying that Jakim was vital to the smooth running of the current administration.
“Really? Will anyone die if we slash their budget by half? Will anyone become stupid or will the Malays become smarter?” she asked.

Just like the protection of Zakir Naik and BTN by Mahathir, the delicate kid-gloves treatment of middle-age or elderly men marrying little sub-teen girls by Wan Azizah, Mujahid will also protect, preserve and provide for JAKIM.

What fAAking New Malaysia?


  1. Easy does it panggang-grill of DAP-pigs. Wakakaka..

    Ah Jib Gor meets Zakir Naik for discussion.
    Ktemoc was fully supportive, still is..

    Wah Azizah has repeatedly said the marriage of the 11-year old is illegal..which is too difficult for Ktemoc Konsiders to read, so he ignores it.

    Yes, it is the New Malaysia, where people are unafraid to speak up, no threats or consequences from the New Government.

  3. "As we have observed and said, the PH government under Mahathir definitely will be worse than the previous BN government "....

    Ktemoc lives in an Evidence-free world....on the contrary all the signs point to a better government under Pakatan.

    To be realistic , not all the Pakatan Harapan intentions are financially or politically possible.

  4. JAKIM has been in existence since the days of TDM.

    Never heard so complaints about it's budget or roles until the Zamihan case and after PH Govt. taken over.

    Why the rush to abolish JAKIM or BTN? Just reform it, cut their budget to prevent wastages and use it to promote and indoctrinate towards PH Govt. idealism of good governance should be worth it politically in the long run.

    That goes too for all the restrictive laws currently. Use it against your political rivals to squash them forever then discard them before the next election.

    Whats good for the goose is also good for the gander.

    All PH politicians and politicians must learn from their Ceasar who is Numero Uno in politics. That's real politiking in play when dealing with unscrupulous, corrupt, racists, bigots, supremacists, uncivilized, thugs, gangsters, manipulators, killers, murderers, robbers, rapists, paedophiles among the previous leaders, their supporters and bloggers.
