A government that is afraid and unable to deal with hate politician is not worthy of support
The Christians’ fight for the right to call God “Allah” conveyed that they have no name for their deity, Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali told The Malay Mail yesterday.
Two days ago, at the Perkasa Selangor Conference 2013, he also urged the Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to ban the Malay bible the al-Kitab from Malaysia in retaliation for the Christian community’s “ingratitude”.
The public are not surprised at all that Ibrahim could say such provocative, offensive and nonsensical remarks, for everyone knows too well just how this leader of hate politics has said before and is capable of saying.
But right thinking netizens cannot hide their anger and have made angry responses in the social media posts.It is no surprise that there exist extremists and hate politicians in any country. But the question is how does the government deal with such people.
I certainly agree with former Cabinet Minister when he tweeted “a government that is afraid and unable to deal with hate politician is not worthy of support”.
Yesterday, when reiterating Pakatan Rakyat’s stand that non Muslims can refer to God as Allah, opposition leader Datuk Seri Ibrahim has said that that Najib never seems to be around for the Allah ban issue and the country is like running on auto-pilot.
Indeed, Najib must not maintain his silence on the Allah ban decision by the Court of Appeal; he must also show the government’s preparedness and ability to deal with hate politicians.
