Infamous Malaysian politician Hasan Ali, who previously spoke out vociferously against solar powered talking Bibles that are allegedly being used to persuade Malaysian Muslims to become Christians, is still ‘crusading’ (if we can borrow that word) against the rising tide of ‘Christianization’ in Malaysia.
Wait, I thought Islam is the perfect religion–Muslims never ever tire of saying so–and pious Muslims are unshakeable in their faith. Muslims endlessly hawk that supposed fact also. Except when they aren’t, apparently. Muslims, as it turns out, are enormously susceptible to jumping the ship of Islam if given the slightest opportunity. At least that’s what Hasan Ali is telling anyone who will listen; Christian ‘treachery’ knows no limits, apparently. From ‘Hasan Ali: Christians going undercover to convert Muslims’, The Malaysian Insider, 28 January 2012:
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 28 “” Former Selangor Islamic affairs executive councillor Datuk Hasan Ali claimed today Christian ministers have resorted to handing out electronic gadgets and wearing kopiah
(skullcaps) to mosques in their efforts to convert Muslims.
The Gombak Setia assemblyman, who was sacked from PAS and the state government earlier this month, told an anti-apostasy rally in Kepala
Batas, Penang that Muslims in the country were vulnerable to these methods due to their lack of faith.
He said that when he was Selangor executive councillor, he received at least 60 reports of apostasy including how Muslims were enticed with
money and given gifts of laptop computers, cameras, cars, monthly food
provisions and gadgets like solar-powered bibles.
“There were reports of foreign Christian ministers wearing Muslim
skullcaps and attending prayers at a certain mosque in Petaling Jaya to
establish a communal relationship with Muslims before converting them.
“I was told these international Christian groups have unlimited
funds,” he told a crowd of about 2,000, a tenth of Himpunan Sejuta Umat’s (Himpun) targeted 20,000 attendess.
Unlimited funds? How underhanded and dastardly!
The coalition of Muslim NGOs has organised several such gatherings in response to the “challenge of Christianisation“.
Himpun was mooted following last year’s controversial August 3 raid
by Selangor Islamic authorities on the Damansara Utama Methodist Church
(DUMC) in Petaling Jaya, where it was alleged that Christians were converting Muslims.
Hasan had backed the raid and said there “could be hundreds, maybe
even thousands” of cases of Muslims being converted by Christians.
Last November, the former Selangor PAS chief told the Selangor
Legislative Assembly that evangelical Christians are using high-tech devices such as solar-powered talking bibles to proselytise Muslims in the state.
You can probably see where this is going. More energetic crackdowns and more oppression against not just Christians, but anything unIslamic, is what Hasan Ali and his cohorts are agitating for. Via hysteria and paranoia, we find that these Believers readily justify tyranny of the Islamic kind indefinitely.
Would any Muslim apologists or spokespersons care to show how Hasan Ali has got the Noble Religion of Peace, Moderation, etc. etc. all wrong? Anyone?
