Lim Guan Eng miscalculated DAP's influence on PAS and put PR in deep shit


The call to allow Allah name in the Malay language Bible in his Christmas message has backfired DAP and PAS and ultimately the Pakatan Rakyat.

LGE believed the moderates in the PAS can stick with PR on Allah name is non-exclusive to Islam. He was right initially, but the backlash from the PAS conservative grassroots has forced PAS to adopt a new stance, that is Allah is exclusively for Islam in order to cover its backside.

PAS-led Kedah government has issued a Taliban-like moral guidelines for the Chinese New Year’s celebration to regain its lost ground after Allah issue was re-ignited by LGE.

The consequences are DAP is looked bad by PAS followers and Malay fence-sitters while PAS is looked bad by DAP followers and Chinese and Indian fence-sitters.

This is a political blunder should be avoided at all costs by PR when the GE13 is around the corner, but LGE had fallen into a mouse trap made by himself.

Guan Eng not talking to BN media on Allah issue

GEORGE TOWN: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng still refuses to respond to PAS Syura Council’s decision to reject the use of the word ‘Allah’ in the Malay-language Bible.

“I will not speak in front of the Barisan Nasional (BN) media,” he said when asked to comment about the matter after attending the Thai Ponggal celebration at the Penang Hindu Endowments Board’s office.

He then left the event as reporters continue to chase after him.

The Kalimah Allah became an issue when Lim, who is DAP secretary-general, in his speech during a Christmas celebration, called for the federal government to allow Christians to use the word Allah in the Malay-language Bible.

Lim’s call received various protests, but was lauded by the opposition party leaders.

However, PAS and its spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, made a u-turn in his stand and disagreed with Lim because the word of ‘Allah’ referred to the one and only God in Islam, and to allow other religion to use the word, according to Nik Aziz, was ridiculous. – Bernama

This is just a political game. Allah issue is in the heart of all malays, regardless of whether they are from Umno or PAS. Therefore PAS has to do so to soothe their supporters. LGE raised this issue in the fist place to win the support of the Christians of Sabah & Sarawak. Politicians can never be consistent, but take every opportunity for the sake of getting support from their targeted voters. I am not a religious person, to me this is no issue at all but the BN media is playing it up to stir the emotion of religious people.

The Allah issue is almost subsided because BN is also no wanted to offend Christians in Sabah and Sarawak. LGE thought that he is very smart to play up the issue before GE13, but found himself in the trap.
