Religion and Race: the mistaken conflation

Race: each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics: people of all races, colours, and creeds.

Religion: the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.

These words are not interchangeable.

Religion is not race. Race is not religion.

Race is not a belief in a god.

Obsession and Ignorance contribute to extremism, says FT mufti

PUTRAJAYA, Feb 27, 2015:

Extremist ideologies among militants who frequently use “jihad” as an excuse to legalise their violent acts are the result of ignorance about religion, and obsession with their leaders.

Federal Territory Mufti Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Albakri said ignorance was usually related to lack of information about religion, getting wrong information or not fully understanding an issue.

“This ignorance is a disaster, because with ignorance and the little information that the militants have, they are willing to debate with anyone,” he said during a briefing on the IS, or the so-called Islamic State, at the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) here today.

He said the real concept of debates was to get to the truth, but for those people who were ignorant, it was to see who wins or loses.

Zulkifli also said obsession was a threat because those who were obsessed would stop others who were not of the same mind and whom they considered were wrong.

“This happens a lot as when they are obsessed, they cannot be logical,” he said.

Commenting on the threat of the IS militants, he said no ulama would support the group.

“In fact, two days ago, there was a seminar in Mecca where resolutions were made which reflected how inaccurate and wrong the IS struggle is,” he said.

He added that most ulama from around the world had criticised the IS and disagreed with the way they treated their prisoners, including killing them cruelly.

Zulkifli said enforcement of laws was inadequate to resolve the problem of extremism.

“In the most recent resolutions, most ulama felt that it was necessary to reform the education system on Islam by providing real understanding,” he said.

Eric Paulsen a ‘serial twitterer’ against Islam, claims Zulkifli Noordin

External image

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 16, 2015:

A former Perkasa deputy president has concluded that human rights lawyer, Eric Paulsen suffers from “a disease” called Islamophobia.

Datuk Zulkifli Noordin explained he came to the conclusion based on a series of tweets by the Lawyers for Liberty co-founder.

“We pity him. He is a serial twitterer against Islam and we believe he needs to be fixed and corrected, but in a way that is in accordance to the law,” he told reporters after handing over a memorandum in support of Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar’s actions against those who had insulted Islam.

Paulsen was detained by police on Monday following his tweet that accused the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) of promoting extremism every Friday in its sermons.

Zulkifli diseru menjadi manusia baik

Oleh Sarah M.Khir

Kuala Lumpur, 18 April

Isu di antara Menteri Belia dan Sukan, Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar dan Naib Presiden Perkasa Datuk Zulkifli Noordin tidak terhenti setakat itu malah Zulkifli hari ini tampil memberi kenyataan balas menerusi laman sosial Twitternya

Susulan kenyataan Khairy terhadap Datuk Zulkifli Noordin baru-baru ini yang menerima kritikan daripada KJ kerana menganggap kematian Penasihat DAP, Karpal Singh menguntungkan kerajaan Kelantan yang ingin melaksanakan hokum hudud.

Malah Zulkifli dengan lantang terus mempersoalkan kewibawaan KJ sebagai menteri.

Dalam tweet terbarunya, Zulkifli memuatnaik status: ” Saya tidak mahu melayan menantu Pak Lah kerana saya bersimpati dengan Datuk Seri Najib. Jadi saya akan menjawab hanya sekali supaya mereka semua boleh tidur dengan aman,”katanya.

“@Dear Mnantu Pak Lah: Tolong jangan jadi seorang menteri yang dungu. Kami tidak memerlukan satu lagi Anwar di negara ini Ok Yop,” katanya, membidas kenyataan Khairy semalam.

Tidak menunggu lama untuk membalas balik kenyataan itu, Khairy meminta Zulkifli untuk terus berdepan dengan beliau. Jadilah seorang lelaki. Dan menjadi manusia yang baik.

Isu itu tercetus beberapa jam selepas kematian Karpal yang menyebabkan Zulkifli memuatnaik status yang dianggap tidak menghormati kematian pemimpin pembangkang itu.

“Dalam keadaan kemelut kerajaan PAS Kelantan mahu melaksanakan hudud dengan bantuan Umno, Allah telah mematikan Karpal yang menjadi penentang utama pelaksanaannya!” tulisnya.

Kenyataan itu mendapat perhatian Khairy yang menganggap ia keterlaluan dengan melibatkan politik dengan kematian seseorang.

“Diam. Betul, hanya diam,” Khairy yang membalas dengan menggunakan Twitter beliau @Khairykj.

Agencies help fishermen by reeling in middlemen

KUALA LUMPUR: Measures taken by the Malaysian Fisheries Development Authority (LKIM) and fishermen associations have seen fishermen reducing their dependence on daganan (bidders) The measures taken were equipment aids, interest-free loans and assistance during the monsoon for fishermen nationwide. LKIM Corporate Communication department director Intan Suhaila Othman said the board had made efforts to reduce the middlemen’s involvement, which had led to the manipulation of fisherman. In turn, the middlemen controlled the price of fish. “LKIM provides places for fishermen to sell their catch by themselves, which they can get full profit without the involvement of daganan. “We can get information about the catch as long as they land
their catch at LKIM fish landing jetties. “We help fishermen by providing equipment aids, such as nets, containers, as well as equipment to repair boats,” she told the New Straits Times. Intan said another aid was interest-free loans to replace or to repair old fishing
boat.    “In certain areas, fishermen are not registered under fishermen associations and have to rely on middlemen because they do not have the money to buy daily needs to go fishing. “We are doing our best to reduce their dependency on middlemen, and by 2019, we hope that we can abolish daganan’s involvement. “We can’t do price inspections as they are under the purview of the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry. However, we do daily price monitoring and post it on our website.” Kuantan Fishermen Association chairman Talib Husin said it helped fishermen by providing aid, especially during the monsoon season. “We don’t have the budget to provide them financial aid. All we can do is provide basic necessities, such rice, coffee and milk, to help them out. “LKIM has taken the initiative by providing fish markets that are managed by fishermen near fish landing jetties. As soon as we land the catch, our family members will sell the fish at the market. “From that, we can maximise profits as the income generated by selling the catch goes directly to fishermen,” he said. Talib said the collaboration between the associations in the states had given fishermen extra income. “There is demand for certain fish in other states, and by exchanging products, we are making sure
that all the catches are sold, which helps fishermen get extra income. “We encourage our fishermen to apply for loans from Tabung Ekonomi Kumpulan Usaha Niaga to help them.” A Terengganu Fishermen Association spokesman said the prices were set by daganan and wholesalers as fishermen did not know how to determine the market price for fishes. Federation of the Malaysian Consumers Associations (Fomca) deputy president Mohd Yusof Abdul Rahman said fishermen did not have many options as they were tied to middlemen. “Apart from the bad weather, especially in the east coast, middlemen, wholesalers, retailers and fishmongers determine the price of fish. “It has become a tradition among fishermen where the middlemen pay them in advance for the daily fuel consumption of their boats, ice (to preserve their catch), food and cigarettes, as well as lending money for their needs as they don’t have a fixed income. “This causes fishermen to be bound to daganan as the advance payment is a debt, which leads them to be manipulated by the latter. “Fomca suggests that LKIM acts as the middleman by buying fish directly from fishermen, and take it to markets. “This reduces the burden on consumers as the fish will be sold at cheaper price. “This will also help fishermen earn profit directly without daganans involvement. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
