Questioning a Muslim like Hanif who is working in a haram gambling casino is a taboo?


Tun Hanif should not be invited by Selangor sultan for his involvement in a gambling casino. He set a bad example for all Malaysian Muslims.

Hanif: Malay feelings hurt over discussion of taboo issues

PETALING JAYA (Dec 11, 2013): Former Inspector General of Police Tun Hanif Omar has decried the manner issues that were taboo in the past are now discussed with the feelings of Malays being hurt in the process.

He said special rights of bumiputras are being questioned, the position of sultans is being touched on and the sanctity of Islam as the religion of the federation is being raised.

Speaking at a tea party for government retirees on Saturday held in conjunction with the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Shaharuddin Idris Shah’s 68th birthday, he said the perceived lack of credibility in the traditional media had given rise to alternative media which he alleged had spread falsehoods.

The text of his speech was released by the state government today.

“Much time, energy, and money has been put into this new way of politicking. Some leaders even go from country to country to badmouth their own country and try to rally international support and sympathy.”

He said the culture of street demonstrations by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and political parties has also hurt the country’s development.

Hanif said the situation had worsened after 2008 with young Malays also involved in such protests now.

On army personnel who had lost their lives in defending the country, he said it was very difficult to swallow what PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu had said about Malayans who had defended the Bukit Kepong Police Station being colonial police.
