"Don't Play With Fire," Says Umno Youth As It Warns Bar Council On 'Conversion To Islam' Forum

Umno Youth warned the Bar Council Malaysia not to “stoke the fires of disunity.”

The movement’s exco member Datuk Pirdaus Ismail said the movement strongly opposed the Bar Council’s plan to organise an open forum on conversion to Islam.

“Don’t play with fire! Don’t ever touch religious and racial (matters)!" he said in a statement released on Thursday.

"Why has the Bar Council been stoking the fires of disunity lately -- like they have been used by foreign powers who want to create chaos and intervene in the country’s internal affairs?” he said.

“Whatever (the) excuses given, the forum would still provoke Malay sentiment and create uneasiness and public disorder, particularly among the Malays,” he said in the statement.

He said the movement urged the authorities to implement preventive measures before the situation got out of hand.

Pirdaus said the Bar Council had previously also organised a forum on the much-discussed social contract, which incited anger among the Malays and created doubt in the other races.

It is pointless to organise forums based on intellectualism, professionalism or controversial issues when the safety, peace, harmony and stability of the country were being compromised,” he added. (The Star Online)

Citing the compromise of safety, peace, harmony and stability, Pirdaus says "it is pointless to organise forums based on intellectualism, professionalism or controversial issues"! How do you even reason with or God forbid, argue with a guy like that?

The Umno Brownshirts must have their say, even when their brains haven't been upgraded since 1894. Can't blame them for feeling threatened after March 8th - which swept away the only protection they had, a totally misguided notion of Malay supremacy and the inviolability of their professed religion. 99% of these Umno samseng haven't a clue what Islam is all about - but they sure do understand crony capitalism and the perks of a rotten-to-the-core rent-seeking culture. Fire symbolizes illumination, the power of the intellect, and ability to shed light in dark places where creepy-crawlies like Umno Youth lurk. Let's ALL play with fire and see them run! :-)

What's wrong with trying to understand and learning indepth the conversion issue which has been bothering the non-muslims. It will create a better understanding among different races.
I always clarify with my muslim colleagues whenever I need to understand some sensitive matters.

In a number of other countries, it is a personal issue ... but isn't the "conversion" issue a legal one in Malaysia ?

And does the DPM mean that a "closed" forum is okay ?

These brainless arseholes should be exiled to Tanjung Rambutan for mental rehabilitation.

What sensitive issues when families have suffered so miserably following ridiculous body snatching episodes?
I do not think Islam can be that cruel.

For god's sake, wake up! We are a multi-racial country.

Islam in its true form is great but our umno assholes misinterprets it and make rules of their own. They take Islam and use it for personal gains. UMNO is a classic case, they use Islam as the spearhead for political gains but have no qualms in making corruption their way of life. Surely Allah knows what these people are doing. They have been using Islam to threaten people. Islam Hadhari champion is nothing but a low down SOB.

Pirdaus and gang should first practise the true Islam before talking. They hv made a big sin by accusing DSAI and a greater sin by making the party workers believe and talk about it.

They are making a mockery of Islam with all their actions. An imam buying a RM1.5 million house? Since when did Masjid Negara pay so well to an imam? Pirdaus has a bungalow near the Jalan Duta mosque. To say his parents are rich, just see his parents house at Kg Kubu Gajah, Sg Buloh 10 years ago. Now a bit better because Pirdaus financed some renovation and bought a Perdana V6 for his father lately.

I could stop laughing as I read The Star (aka The Eclipse...) over breakfast....

One silly news after another...
1. Syed Hamid's statement on why Saiful isn't charged since it's consensual + the heavy police presence at the courts + road block
2. Some PR piece with huge photo about FRU "keeping the peace"...Din know there was any disturbance...
3. Then Najib on this...
And more...

Najib should tell ppl not to play with REAL ammunition -- C4, guns, etc. Rhetoric is so anodyne by far.

On 7th August 2008 during the NTV7English news @ 8pm, the daily poll question for the evening was weather this forum should be held behind close doors. The result?
95% said it should NOT be held behind close doors
