I would like to take time off from my busy schedule these days to reply to a comment by Satish. Thank you for reading my blog and your comments HERE are appreciated.
Let me assure you I am not an idiot and will not take everything in Wikipedia as my source. In fact, I have a copy of the official Constitution of Malaysia in my computer.
I linked my reference of the Constitution to the version in Wikipedia - which is the same as the official Constitution - because of the speed and convenience for access via the Internet.
The PDF versions will take longer to load.
Anyway, the Constitution recognizes Islam as the official religion and respects freedom of religion of other faiths.
The acknowledgement of Islam as the official religion is a declaration that our country is indeed an Islamic nation.
Being an active member of OIC and other Islamic forums or conferences further underline our status.
I am sure DAP is a confused party with their leaders constantly making contradictory remarks. I thank you for showing me the DAP link that explains Malaysia as a secular state.
Perhaps you have not read the latest news. DAP leaders, especially the one at the top most, agreed in principle and paper that Malaysia's Constitution and status of Islam as the official religion should be upheld.
If DAP leaders do not agree with Malaysia's status as an Islamic nation, perhaps they should pull out of Pakatan Rakyat.
The people should ask the well praised and loved Democratic Action Party about their stand. I am sure DAP's stand is not aligned with those from PKR and PAS.
BigDogDotCom described Pakatan Rakyat as an alliance of "marriage of convenience". I can't agree more.
