Do you trust PR with its conflicting policy?

PR contradicting Allah policy in Selangor

Selangor government surrenders to Selangor sultan’s decree to ban non-Muslims to use Allah.

This is contradicted with the PR’s official stand on Allah issue, which is no stopping any party from using Allah albeit they are not encouraged to do so.

DAP Selangor exco like Teresa Kok please say something about Allah issue in Selangor? Keep silence means you agree with Abdul Khalid.

How do you trust PR if they have conflicting policies for an issue?

PR Selangor government should be dissolved and seeking for a new election as a matter of principle to keep PR integrity intact if PR’s stance is against the sultan.

This is another hypocrisy from PR for having two sets of contradicting policies.

Selangor abides by Sultan’s decree on use of ‘Allah’

SHAH ALAM, Jan 9 (Bernama) — The Selangor government will abide by Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah of Selangor’s decree that all non-Muslims in the state are banned from using the word ‘Allah’ for it is a holy word exclusive to Muslims.

Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the use of the word ‘Allah’ was in accordance with a fatwa (edict) issued and gazetted by the state government on Feb 18, 2010.

“According to the gazette, the pronouncement of the word ‘Allah’ is a holy word dedicated to Islam and Muslims, and it should not be used or equated with other religions.

“Therefore, it is obligatory for Muslims to protect the word in the way they know best and thwart any element of humiliation or abuse,” he told reporters here today.

The Sultan’s decree followed a special Selangor Islamic Religious Council (Mais) meeting convened on Sunday to discuss Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s Christmas message where he had urged the government to allow Christians to use ‘Allah’ in the Bahasa Malaysia version of the Bible.

Abdul Khalid, however, declined comment on Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s endorsement that non-Muslims be allowed to use the word ‘Allah’, and asserted that the state government’s stand on the matter was in accordance to what had been gazetted.

“In Selangor, the word ‘Allah’ is enshrined in the Selangor State Enactment to ensure that there is no element of humiliation and abuse occurring and we abide by what has been gazetted,” he said.

The sultan’s decree was publicised through a statement from the Selangor Islamic Affairs Council (Mais).

Mais secretary Datuk Mohd Misri Idris said the Sultan had also instructed Mais and the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) to take stern action against any Muslim or non-Muslim who questioned or belittled the edict issued and gazetted according to Selangor laws.
