Gaming is not a Chinese culture

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I refer to opinion by YC Chong in “Gaming not haram for non-Muslims”. (http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/6/3/focus/6389432&sec=focus).

I disagree with him that gaming is an entertaining pastime for the majority Chinese in Malaysia. Gaming or betting is never a morally correct thing or culture for Chinese from any religion background.

Culture is something being taught and inherited from generation to generation.

Did Chinese parents teach their offsprings to gamble or play 4D?

If yes, gambling is Chinese culture.

If no, gambling is unwanted social ill.

Besides, there is no such concept of haram or not haram for non-Muslims. It’s ridiculous to assume haram for Muslims mean not haram for non-Muslims. His argument is in fallacy in the first place.

Legalize gaming or gambling by the authorities does not make a sinful thing to sinless. And the basic moral value of Chinese new generations living under the legal gaming environment will be slowly eroded who may wrongly assume gamble or betting is nothing wrong MORALLY as YC Chong.
