Kamarul Zaman’s police report against Hannah Yeoh raises the question whether he is fit and proper to be a lecturer of plural Malaysia’s public university
Kamarul Zaman Yusof’s false and malicious police report against Selangor Speaker and DAP Selangor State Assemblywoman for Subang Jaya, Hannah Yeoh, accusing her of proselytization of Muslims with the publication of her autobiography “Being Hannah”, raises the question whether he is fit and proper to be a lecturer of plural Malaysia’s public universities.
It is a further sign that the Malaysian nation-building process, after six decades, have gone terribly wrong and must be corrected.
It is unimaginable that Hannah Yeoh’s autobiography on her personal journey to be a good Christian so as to be a good Malaysian would have caused objections, let alone be the subject of a false and malicious police report of proselytization to Muslims, in the first five decades of our nationhood.
Hannah Yeoh’s personal journey to be a good Christian so as to be a good Malaysian is a journey Rukunegara wants all Malaysians to take, for all Malaysians to be respectively good Muslims, good Buddhists, good Christians, good Hindus, good Sikhs and good Taoists so as to become good Malaysians and to fully subscribe to the five Rukunegara principles of: Belief in God; loyalty to King and Country; the Supremacy of the Constitution; the Rule of Law and Good behavior and Morality.
Kamarul Zaman complains that Hannah Yeoh’s book had too many verses and quotes from the Bible. Will he next call for the banning of the Bible?
Kamarul Zaman accused Hannah Yeoh of a “Christianisation agenda”.
I am not a Christian and I can vouch that the for the past nine years since 2008 when I first got to know Hannah in the 2008 general election, Hannah Yeoh had never discussed with me any such “Christian agenda”.
There is no such agenda in the DAP or among any DAP MP or State Assembly representative. For the past seven years, Hannah Yeoh had been an exemplary Malaysian, Speaker and DAP elected representative who serves all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or socio-economic background.
Kamarul Zaman’s police report is proof of the failure to promote wasatiyyah in Malaysia, although the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had declared that the wasatiyyah (moderation) campaign of justice, balance and excellence was the reason behind his idea of a Global Movement of Moderates.
Why are such qualities sorely missing in Malaysia?
Is the Najib Cabinet prepared to halt such religious intolerance, extremism and polarisation in Malaysia and place the subject as a top agenda at its meeting next Wednesday on May 24?
