Wanna bet?

Dark clouds over Malaysian common sense

I'm taking bets on how long it will be before they demolish the

It was reported in the Star today that the National Fatwa Council has found the National Monument venue unsuitable for the celebration of Warriors Day. This was announced by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Jamil Khir Baharom. He said that the council had found the venue unsuitable because the monument was in the form of human statues. Jamil said, "The Fatwa Council’s guidelines say that the venue should not have items in the shape of humans, as this can be controversial."

But of course, this being Malaysia the minister also announced that a Warriors Square would be built on a permanent site in Putrajaya for future celebrations.

Okay, line up here if you want to say goodbye to some of your tax money.

I second your Niamah!!! a thousand times over.

Even the world's most populous Muslim country in the world, Indonesia, doesn't make quite a fuss over non-issues like this. There, the equivalent of our Fatwa Council decisions are more along the lines of advice, and not legally binding.

I'm a Muslim, but if the Fatwa council continues to be given leeway like this, it won't be surprising that the monument will one day meet its demise, Bamiyan-style. Not "officially", of course, but by some quietly sanctioned "individuals".

In a sense, Christopher Hitchens was spot on - religion does poison everything.

National Monument
The Bee Anne wants it to go?
Don't they have something better to do?
Our tax dollars going to waste again?

National Monument
Erected in memory of our soldiers
There is no class distinction
Race, religion or creed

The religious Fatwa Council
Leave your view within your walls
This National Monument meant for Malaysians
It isn't built for a race or a religion

This is the symbol of patriotism
It reminds the people of the soldiers' sacrifices
Let no religion intrudes into a symbolic memory
Of our soldiers fighting for the country

It's the sign the Ameeno is crumbling
The walls crack waiting for the hammer
Once it swings goodbye Amigo
We bury it in history....

This certainly reminds me of Taliban dynamited The Buddhas of Bamyan in 2001. I thought BN are heading towards Zimbabwe, but this is convincing enough that BN chooses Afghanistan instead.

i am just our of words after reading this crap non-sense from so called hollier than thou 'kids' .. go ahead, just destroy all monument that has any human figures and maybe they need to consider any posters/ billboards too....................... God save this beautiful land from these goons!!

KoSong Cafe said...

Aiyah, it is so obvious lah.

Looking at the statues, they look more like cowboys than Malaysians.

So how could they be national heroes to the young ones?

Over time, historical details got blurred and only obvious first impressions count.

First, change road names to try to 'hide' our colonial past

Next, demolish anything that the stupid fart-wah made up of farty-idiots, which says it is HARAM

who are they to determine what is haram and what is not?

And demolish everything, fr the keris handle (which looks lk a cross, eg in SEREMBAN) to human monuments or animal monuments that they think is 'westernised)

they wan to erase our history, and everything so that they can claim this land as MALAY-Land!

every damn thing to these pretentious pious A$$H*les are haram
then they shd just castrate themselves to rid themselves of naughty thoughts and naughty actions of procreating and breeding like rabbits!

Niamah, niapah, pariah!

To me this is one of the nicer monument in Malaysia. Better go and see it again before it is too late. Religion can become an Idol. I hope that they will not remove my beloved Agong on my currency too.

If they are given leeway, very soon all statues in Malaysia will be deemed haram.

I think there's an udang disebalik the comments. I think its about giving statues / idol praising which is a no no in some religion.

So sad. Remembering the heroes of our country would soon have to be some plagues on the wall.

Minimum $500 million but with VO's and unforeseen cost escalations, it will balloon to $1 billion.

And then a year after completion, the foundation will collapse because the contractor used his own design and not that of the main architect's service. Nevertheless, a thothally independent internal inquiry will reveal that no one is to be blamed! Sound familiar?

Remember you heard it here first!

Instead of issuing out Fat-Fat thingy that corruption, bribery, laziness and abuse of power are unIslamic and against their own religion.
This Fat-Fat council said saluting the Tugu thing is unIslamic.
If saluting a Tugu is haram then is saluting a flag hung on a pole considered as halal?
I rather salutes the prostitutes as they make my day.

the traveller said...

Haiyoo, if you already know you are a muslim then why on earth do you bow in front of the statue???

You know as a muslim myself, I'm always perplexed by these people's logic on Islam. Bribery, drinking, racism and profanity (yes, that's you Ibrahim Ali) seems to be well accepted though they are clearly against Islam, yet they always worry about the trivial stuff like the usage of Allah by non-muslims though it's never against Islam. Just like when they accused Anwar of being an ally of America and the Jews and it turns out they themselves hired APCO. Then the spin begins like how it's not wrong to be friends with Jews etc2. Of course it's never wrong but considering how you keep on calling these people evil, most people will call this hypocrisy. I'd add stupidity too.

Many2 yrs ago when i was in primary school, we were so proud of the National Monument and we were taught to bow at the monument to show our respects. The picture was always there in the text books, chinese, english and bahasa text.
You mean to say the fart-wa today is different from the fart-wa last time, long2 time ago one? How come? People change and policy also change? Is Francis Light in Penang also kena the same faith?

Pat, if this is true, it reminds me of what happened in Afghanistan when the Taliban blew up the 1700 year old Buddha statues! So SAD!

When I was reading the news, I rubbed my eyes several times, thinking I my eyes were blurring what I read... This country has got many funny chaps in the leadership and funny news abounds, but this is definitely new... I thought when I was a kid in school I was told that these statutes commemorate our fallen warriors?

Was it a mistake made?

donplaypuks® said...

And also, all those great statues all over Jakarta and Indonesia, they are also to be fatwaed out by more Islamic than Saudi M'sian clerics?

And in the process, insult our war heroes and others who fought against Cimmunism many of whom were also of Chinese and Indian origin?

What a shame and how misguided can one be?

This national fuck-wah council should come out with fuck-wah that the council is haram and full of shit-heads and should be banned for the benefit of mankind.

If this fuck-wah council is allowed to continue with their fuck-wahs, very soon all muslims in Bolehland will not be allowed to take photos of themselves.

Somebody apparently blew up that monument so that the figures could be rebuilt with Malay faces in the seventies. Blamed it all on the "2nd Communist Insurgency".

Today people wants bearded Talibanistic figures, it seems.

The royals in Britain cannot make money other than off their estate - no businesses or contracts, so that they remain neutral. Here, the royals need to emulate such behaviour. Please have some dignity, integrity and pride in your positions if you still want respect from the rakyat. Otherwise, don't complain when talk becomes 'derhaka' or seditious.

The royalty are supposed to put the people first and their position is to be used to help the rakyat, not themselves. Are the royals so blind to their responsibilities?

When I look at this monuments, i think of all the lives sacrificed for the independence of this country and our liberties. It brings tears to my eyes. After so many years of being a symbol of this countries, only the National Fatwa Council says no? Why now, why at the time when religious sensitivity is at its height that this issue is brought up?
