Worth remembering and repeating: “there is no fun in Islam.”
Malaysia’s overtly Islamic political party, known as PAS, is probably the most dangerous political party in the nation. They are the most pro Jihad, pro Sharia, pro terrorist, pro Taliban, pro bin Laden, pro Al Qaeda (et cetera) group of pious Mohammedans that you can imagine. And they make the crooks of UMNO (the current gang of Muslim thieves running Malaysia’s kleptocracy) look good by comparison most of the time. And that’s really saying something.
One thing PAS — as well as any pious believer — is definitely not in favor of is music. Practically anytime a foreign musician books a concert anywhere in the country, or is rumored to be doing so, you can bet your bottom ringgit that the Thugs for Allah are going to object. Shrilly and repeatedly. From ‘PAS slammed over MTV protest’ by Zuhrin Azam Ahmad and Lee Yen Mun in The Star, 21 July 2011:
PETALING JAYA: PAS’ objection to the MTV concert came under fire from various groups which described the party as narrow-minded.
MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said PAS was being insensitive to the reality of multi-ethnic Malaysia by imposing its values on others.
“Young people should be allowed to enjoy popular culture as long as they do not violate societal norms.
“I do not see any contradiction between the Asian values (practised in
Malaysia) and the MTV (World Stage Live in Malaysia) concert,” he told The Star yesterday.
PAS Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad and the party’s Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi had objected to the concert, scheduled to take place at i-City in Shah Alam on Sunday.
Khalid said he was opposed to the concert because it was being held too close to the fasting month and that the venue was not conducive, while Nasrudin said the party was not agreeable
to concerts which encouraged immoral activities.
MCA state secretary Wong Koon Mun said the protest by PAS showed the party might claim to take on a moderate approach, but “intrinsically, PAS remains
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said PAS’ opposition proved it was a narrow and conservative party at heart.
Narrow minded, dogmatic and conservative? To a devout Muslim, such words must register as compliments of the highest kind.
These weasel-worded half-apologetic statements from MCA are about the strongest stances for freedom that any group of Malaysian politicians is willing to make openly, which should indicate how far Malaysia has sunk into the Islamic morass. In recent years, PAS or its affiliates have also objected to concerts by Adam Lambert, Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne, and many others. Not that I am necessarily a fan of any of the above-named artists, but the fact of the matter in indisputable: Islam murders artistic freedom, and sometimes artists themselves.
Remember that PAS is part of Anwar Ibrahim’s ‘Pakatan Rakyat’ coalition, which is an unholy marriage of Leftists and Jihadists that is angling to kick uber-corrupt UMNO & Company out of Malaysia’s Federal Government. Does anyone think that Anwar, a supposed ‘moderate’ Muslim, will be lecturing to his jihadist brethren about the errors of their ways, about how they’re ‘misinterpreting’ their religion of peace and moderation?
Don’t bet the farm on it.
