Malaysians unconvinced that proposed RUU355 will not affect religious rights of freedom for non-Muslims: DAP Sec-Gen Guan Eng

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 7.10.2021:

Malaysians remain unconvinced with the assurances by PAS Minister for Islamic Affairs Idris Ahmad in Parliament yesterday that the religious rights of freedom of non-Muslims will not be affected by the proposed RUU355 and the bill to restrict the propagation on non-Islamic religions. Since PAS decided to break away from the late PAS leader Allahyarham Tok Guru Nik Aziz politics of moderation, tolerance and respect for non-Muslims, PAS had adopted a policy of hostility towards non-Muslims.

Further, PAS’ brand of extremism is highlighted by their support of the Taliban government in Afghanistan, which denies educational and employment opportunities to women. For Idris Ahmad to claim that this proposed new legislation will only be enforced on Muslims, such as the bill to restrict the propagation of non-Islamic religions, reminds us of the justification by religious extremist preacher Syakir Nasoha, spreading lies against non-Muslims, that his insulting and derogatory remarks against non-Muslims, were meant only for Muslims.

Questions will continue to be raised whether these proposed laws by PAS contravene the Federal Constitution? Where are the assurances from Law Minister Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar who had earlier denied that the Government intends to propose these laws? Wan Junaidi should clarify, especially when the Sabah and Sarawak state governments have openly declared their opposition towards PAS proposals.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2021年10月7日在吉隆坡发表文告:

马来西亚人对于掌管宗教事务的首相署部长拿督依德利斯昨日在国会,有关《2021年伊斯兰法庭(刑事权限)法令》(355法令)修正法案和管控及限制非伊斯兰宗教扩展法案不会影响非穆斯林的保证,仍然不感信服。自从伊斯兰党决定脱离已故伊斯兰党领袖聂阿兹的温和、宽容和尊重非穆斯林的政治精神,伊斯兰党就对非穆斯林采取了敌对政策。

此外,伊斯兰党对阿富汗塔利班政府的支持,更是突显了该党的极端主义品牌。塔利班政府拒绝为妇女提供教育和就业机会。依德利斯声称新法案只会针对穆斯林,例如限制非斯伊兰宗教传播法案,让我们想起了极端主义传教士沙基尔在散播针对非穆斯林的谎言后所进行的辩护,即其针对非穆斯林的侮辱性和贬低性言论,仅是说予穆斯林而已。

人们将继续质疑,伊斯兰党提出的法案建议是否违反了联邦宪法?掌管法律事务的首相署部长旺朱乃迪早前指政府无意提呈这项法案的保证,如今何在?旺朱乃迪应该要说明此事,特别是当沙巴和砂拉越州政府已公开表明他们反对伊斯兰党的建议。
