Here’s a startling Islamophobic admission from one of the dhimmi auxiliaries of Malaysia’s ruling (i.e Muslim) political party UMNO, namely that implementing part of Sharia called hudud (Islamic laws that deal with apostasy, theft, sexual crimes and the consumption of alcohol) may not be in the best interests of all Malaysians. Normally, the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) can be relied upon to follow orders from its Muslim superiors in UMNO, but this isn’t the first time MCA has spoken out against the ongoing encroachment of Islam in Malaysia. Such truth telling about Islam is especially noteworthy for its novelty. Even considering the tactically limited scope of MCA’s ‘Islamophobic’ stances, the ‘infidels’ of MCA are increasingly the lone public voice of anti-dhimmitude to be found anywhere in the country. From “Hudud turns back the clock,” The Star, 29 October 2011:
JOHOR BARU: PAS’ intention to carry out hudud law will cause the nation to backslide and scare away investors, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
The impact would be great on foreign direct investments and also tourists who would shy away, he said, adding that several countries practising hudud law were backward except for their rich natural resources.
Speaking to reporters after attending a function at the Hock Lin Gong Chinese temple here yesterday, Dr Chua stressed that even non-Muslims in the country would be affected, especially in terms of economy and education.
“It is misleading and a lie to say that the implementation of hudud will not affect non-Muslims,” he said.
Islamophobic indeed. Is it not also true to say that countries that practice Sharia, or countries that practice Islam, are also backward except for their rich natural resources? And that the practice of Islam in said states might have something to do with this backwardness?
