Malaysian-born Malay patriot speaks up about Muslim sensitivity
It’s a common occurrence to hear about extremist Muslim preachers and small minorities of Muslims accusing non-Muslim netizens of waging war of sorts against Islam, or insulting the religion of Islam through seemingly harmless and simple acts.
As frustrating as it is to be accused of something they didn’t do, many netizens who have had their simple acts accused of being an insult to Islam, these wrongfully accused business owners and netizens can only sit and passively take the accusations and abashment instead of speaking up, which is mainly due to their non-Muslim status/ nationality and beliefs. Responding or defending to the accusations would only prove the accusations to be right.
Facebook user Mujahidin Zulkiffli, a Malaysian born Muslim, has taken to Facebook to speak his mind in regards to the issue.
They say Non-Halal burger; we say it’s provoking us.
They say “pork free” restaurant; we say it’s to confuse us.
They say “Only Non-Bumi units left”; we say they are discriminating us.
They say “Selamat berbuka puasa dengan Bak Kut Teh”; we persecute and prosecute them thinking we are the only ones that fast in this whole universe. Those Non-Muslims who fast in solidarity during Ramadhan have every right to break fast with anything they want lah..
We justify stealing from them; because we say they are cheating us.
Everything is a non-Malay conspiracy.
Nothing is what it is anymore.
Because everything has to be about us. Even if it’s not about us, it has to be about us.
Even if it doesn’t have to be about us, we make it about us.
Because we have become the most self-centric people in this country.
I’m waiting when we will start saying: “oh got Bumi discount, they are insulting and looking down on us.”
I’m waiting when we will start saying: “oh got Halal sign, they must think we are idiots not knowing what we can eat what we can’t”.
I’m waiting when we will start saying: “oh I got to Uni because of Bumi quota, I must be so stupid I can’t compete by merits.”
I’m waiting when we will start saying: “I’m a rich motherfucker but I still take Bumi discount because it’s my birth-right and I like to steal from those more deserving than me.”
All because some Chinese guy named Hang Tuah said “takkan Melayu hilang di dunia”. Nak pulak kau dengar cakap Cina Babi tu.
It goes without saying that Zulkiffli’s perspective on the matter is noble and judicious.
What is your take on the matter? Do let us know!
