GEORGE TOWN: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng still refuses to respond to PAS Syura Council’s decision to reject the use of the word ‘Allah’ in the Malay-language Bible.
“I will not speak in front of the Barisan Nasional (BN) media,” he said when asked to comment about the matter after attending the Thai Ponggal celebration at the Penang Hindu Endowments Board’s office.
He then left the event as reporters continue to chase after him.
The Kalimah Allah became an issue when Lim, who is DAP secretary-general, in his speech during a Christmas celebration, called for the federal government to allow Christians to use the word Allah in the Malay-language Bible.
Lim’s call received various protests, but was lauded by the opposition party leaders.
However, PAS and its spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, made a u-turn in his stand and disagreed with Lim because the word of ‘Allah’ referred to the one and only God in Islam, and to allow other religion to use the word, according to Nik Aziz, was ridiculous. – Bernama
1. What makes Lim Guan Eng different than Sharifah in responding to Bawani ?
2. At least Sharifah still answer to Bawani in her own way although she is wrong compare to DAP Lim Guan Eng choose not to answer at all.
3. It was DAP Lim Guan Eng who started this Islam vs Christian war in our country and he should not run away from what he had started.
4. So now when PAS Syura also opposed to Christian in Malaysia using the word Allah why should Lim Guan Eng choose to be silent in this issue? Why must he take a double standard stand ? Why only always question BN but always scared to question PAS? So if the rakyat voted for PR to be in POWER then DAP will continue to be a DOG of PAS?
5. At least Sharifah is just a head of an NGO but Lim Guan Eng as a Chief Minister and Chief of DAP should not react in such an emotional and not professional way in responding to the press.
6. Even when Sharifah do not like whatever Bawani had raised at least she still answer and respond to Bawani. But in your case you choose to ignore for something that you yourself had created and started ? ( the war between Islam and Christian ).
7. Why cannot answer to question and issues raise by your opponent ? What makes you different than Sharifah Zohra Jabeen when you are worst than her ?
8. If DAP forever going to take 1 sided news and views then what Freedom of Media , Information and Speaking are you talking about ? Why should DAP restrict the freedom of media and even to question ?
