Mahathir’s U-Turn Call for implementation of the Islamic penal code will certainly backfire and does not help either UMNO nor Najib.

This is a high-handed statements by Mahathir although he is specifically targeting the muslims in PAS as well as threatening the dignity of DAP which has never been an anti-Islamic Party. Doesn’t he see such statements have serious complications towards a multi-religious and multi-racial country like Malaysia? 

I believe that the malaysian masses understand his hidden sinister motives as nothing else but to wholly safeguard his legacy and also most probably to pave the way for his son, Muhkriz’s taking over the helm of government in the near future.

UMNO to him is just only a ‘Tool’ to further his cause towards nepotism and cronyism. He has treated UMNO at his whims and fancies. A good example is that he was once stripped of UMNO membership by the Former first PM due to his different political ideology and during Badawi’s era, he left UMNO at his own accord and later only to be re-instituted upon his application when Najib took over the helm. The point here is that UMNO is only good if it serves his agenda.

For the non-muslims, I opine that the Hudud doesn’t pose any threat to them as they pretty well know that Islam accommodates the existence of other religions in the Malaysian Society and in the words of MP Dzulkefly Ahmad as in his recent blog: “Islam………accords a respect to the “absolutist doctrine” of all transcendental religions”. 

To my mind, an implementation of the Islamic penal code is not at all an issue as long as it is purely for the muslims and in accordance with the federal constitution. If the majority of muslims want such law, why not and we have the Parliament to endorse it and of course with the help of non-muslims to get the two third majority.

If the sanctity of Hudud is to have been grossly misused by irresponsible politicians to further their self-interests, then it will certainly invite religious conflicts of no ending. Hence, should muslims heed mahathir’s highly selfish “Call”? 

Mahathir’s U-Turn Call for implementation of the Islamic penal code will certainly backfire and does not help either UMNO nor Najib. The other non-muslim component parties in BN would repudiate the move as they are not ready to lose a slew of supporters on the ground. It is now pretty clear that Mahathir is pursuing his own agenda, and I am optimistic that the majority of muslims won’t fall into his infamous trap.
