Valentine Girl: Ustazah Siti is loved by many
Siti lists among her favourite pages Harakah Daily, Utusan, Ustaz Sharhan Shafie, Ustaz Ismail Kamus, Tuan Guru Dato’ Dr Haron Din and Dato’ Dr Hj Mohd Fadzilah Kamsah.
Let’s see who these people are.
Ustaz Sharhan Shafie appears to be a popular practitioner of traditional [‘Islamic’] medicine affiliated with ‘Sinar Zamdurrani‘.
Ustaz Ismail Kamus is apparently a PAS man.
Tuan Guru Haron Din needs no introduction. He’s the Timbalan Mursyidul Am of PAS, i.e. deputy spiritual adviser, and second only to Tuan Guru Nik Aziz in the party hierarchy.
Dr Mohd Fadzilah is a [PhD] motivation expert who has appeared on TV. We were unable to find anything about his political affiliation searching online.
Unless someone can come up with some proof of Siti having any link with Umno, we would not be so presumptuous. In fact on the contrary, from her ‘Likes’, we’d assume her to be somewhat inclined to PAS. Again this is only an assumption — ours.
Celebrities or TV personalities may be apolitical or prefer to be on good terms with everyone on either side of the political divide. If someone can point out her link (if any) to Umno, by all means please do so.
Otherwise, it only goes to show the mentality of the Pakatan crowd who jumped to the conclusion that Siti’s criticism of Valentine’s Day reflects big, bad Umno hard at work.
Every explosion of religious tension is invariably blamed on Umno. Yet the Kong Kali Kong ustaz turned out to be a PAS office holder, which caught the Umno bashers flat-footed and red-faced.
(Pix: Normala Sudirman, the PAS ustazah type). Pakatan people should learn to understand that the religious bureaucracy do not come under Umno. Remember that it is the Sultans who are the heads of religion.
In fact, we may one day find the mullahs here to be more powerful than the politicians because nobody dares to question them.
The religious bureaucrats can issue fatwas which become law (for Muslims) and they’re unchallenged, whereas politicians who are lawmakers become no-holds-barred targets of attacks (think CSL and the rest of the MCA guys, or any lawmaker who has decamped from Pakatan such as WCK, HYF and the rest).
Lest the DAP cybertroopers accuse us of being “Umno stooges” (the party should really hire more imaginative people who can come up with alternative slurs, not!), allow us to state explicitly: No, we’re not defending Umno here.
We’re merely warning about the rise and rise of the mullahs, and reminding everyone how much secularism has been eroded.
It’s a timely reminder as even now ‘PAS Youth gathers in preparation to replace Umno‘. The Islamist party has signaled “its readiness to take over from Umno as the dominant Malay party in the next general election”.
