Sebenarnya daku nak beri komen mengenai isu ini. Tapi apa2 pun bacalah dulu artikel penuh seperti di bawah ini.
MCA president Chua Soi Lek appears to be on a warpath, defending his criticism of Muslim women who chose not to shake hands with the opposite sex for religious reasons.
In an angry reaction to questions from reporters, Chua insisted that the norm practised by many Muslim women to avoid skin contact with the opposite sex during handshake was contrary to "basic culture and manners to shake hands".
“I have been in the public life for many years. It's part of the basic culture and manners to shake hands," said Chua, who also scolded a reporter from online portal Malaysiakini, which first broke news of Chua's attack on PAS candidate Normala Sudirman.
Chua had poked fun over Normala's preference not to shake hands with the opposite sex, and compared it to a similar practice by PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
"She will not come here (a Chinese temple), she doesn't even shake hands with the people. I have received complaints about this.
“She is like Anwar Ibrahim's wife. She wears gloves when she shakes hands. If you can accept this kind of Islamic values, go ahead and vote for PAS," he said.
This was followed by deputy Domestic Trade Cooperative and Consumer Affair minister Tan Lian Hoe of Gerakan lashing out at Normala and saying her practise was proof of PAS's goal to establish "an extremist Islamic state".
“This is the most basic thing... Not only men, but when she shakes hands with women, she also needs to wear glove," alleged Tan in the presence of her minister Ismail Sabri.
"This is not friendly. It's as if she thinks our hands are dirty... I hope the Chinese voters are careful (with Islamic state). We are very worried about the Islamic state. They want to implement an extremist Islamic state," she added.
Chua's comments drew strong reactions from Muslims from both sides of the divide, with many recalling his sex video which exposed his adulterous affair in a hotel room in 2008. Even UMNO deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin chided him for raising religious issues in MCA's bid to convince Chinese voters that PAS would trample on non-Muslim rights.
Chua however dismissed Muhyiddin's reminder.
"There is no need for the DPM or the media to communicate this to us," an irate Chua was quoted by Malaysiakini as saying.
'What's so great?'
Despite the storm, Chua stood his ground, saying there was nothing great about knowing the Islamic religious values.
"So what is so great about that? That is your religious value which I don't know. How am I to know about the religious values when I'm not practising that religion?”
"I have the right to say that it's basic manners to shake hands with people. That's my values. Understand? You also must value my value, which is good manners, which includes shaking hands," he went on, as quoted by Malaysiakini.
Meanwhile, condemnations continue to pour in over Chua's comments, with Selangor speaker Teng Chang Khim saying Chua's ignorance reflected the failure of racial integration as claimed by Barisan Nasional.
“CSL says it's not fair for non-Muslim to understand Islamic values. No wonder BN's national integration policy has failed.
"CSL now blames the media for the hand shake issue. He never blames his narrow-mindedness and sheer ignorance,” added Teng on Twitter.
Perak mufti Harussani Zakaria has also broken his silence, and demanded Chua to issue an apology.
“He has to know... he must respect religious practices of others, but if he doesn’t know, that is ignorance. If he knows, but pretend not to, that is insulting Islam," said Harussani, but quickly added he was not supporting the PAS candidate
Dari kata2 dia ni buat daku terbakar.. dah nak hangus dah terbakar ni. Menggelegak je tahi telinga daku kerana terngiang kata2nya. Daku tak menyebelahi mana2 parti politik. Daku tak menyokong mana2 parti politik kerana setiap parti itu tidak perfect... tapi AGAMAKU adalah PERFECT... SANGAT PERFECT.. maka daku beri komen ni kerana dia tak agak2 menghina ajaran AGAMAKU which is ISLAM.
Mula2 sekali daku pelik.. macamana orang loose moral (yang melakukan kesilapan yang tidak ada parents boleh maafkan kalau dilakukan kepada anak perempuannya) boleh dipilih menjadi pemimpin untuk mewakili sejumlah besar rakyat Malaysia???? Dari dulu daku tak pernah kisah siapa pun yang dipilih menjadi presiden parti mana. Tapi bila seorang presiden parti mengeluarkan kenyataan yang mengusik DAKU dan AGAMAKU maka "relevan"nya dia tu akan daku kaji, lihat dan korek.
Ayat : "I have been in the public life for many years. It's part of the basic culture and manners to shake hands,".
Daku nak tanya : Confirm ke.. sure ke yang berjabat tangan tu adalah basic culture? Orang Jepun takde shake hand pun.. diorang main tunduk2 je. Orang India takde shake hand pun.. diorang main cantum dua tapak tangan di dada je... not to mention culture dari bangsa2 lain yang dia dan daku sendiri pun tak tau. So dia nak kata orang Jepun dan orang India tu bukan part of culture ke? Kalau dah bodoh tu sembunyikanlah sikit.. ni tidak.. tunjuk jelas je kebodohannya tu.
Ayat : "This is not friendly. It's as if she thinks our hands are dirty... I hope the Chinese voters are careful (with Islamic state). We are very worried about the Islamic state. They want to implement an extremist Islamic state," she added.
Daku nak tanya : Pertama kalau pakai glove bersalam pun sebenarnya takde menjadi salah. Queen Elizabeth yang ko sendiri agung2kan culturenya tu (berjabat tangan) pun pakai glove jugak bila shake hands. Maknanya QE tu pandang hina lah tangan semua orang ye?
Kedua.. kalau ko worried about the Islamic state.. so you can get your ass out of this Islamic state la sex maniac. We don't need people like you here in Malaysia... damaging.
Ayat : "So what is so great about that? That is your religious value which I don't know. How am I to know about the religious values when I'm not practising that religion?”
Daku nak kata : Kalau dah tak tau tu tanyalah supaya tau.. bukannya keluarkan kenyataan macam ko dah lama belajar dan practice agama tu apatah lagi menghina dan mempersoal. Ko ke yang cipta agama tu sampai ko tau hukum tu dicipta without reason??? There is always reasons behind any rules.. if ko tak tau benda yang paling basic ni la kan.
Ayat : "I have the right to say that it's basic manners to shake hands with people. That's my values. Understand? You also must value my value, which is good manners, which includes shaking hands," he went on, as quoted by Malaysiakini.
Daku nak kata : So what the hell? Do I care about your values because you don't even presenting any religious value? Don't tell me sex rambang tu sebahagian dari ajaran anutan ko? I don't think so. So.. maknanya ko tak represent mana2 anutan pun.. jadi perlu ke aku kisah dengan ko punya value?
Shake hand memang good manners.. tapi kalau shake hands laki ngan pompuan apa yang good nya?
Finally daku nak kata.. janganlah jadi ketam mengajar anak berjalan lurus. Ko sendiri dah tak betul.. dah jadi sex maniac dan bintang porno.. ko rosakkan anak orang (mestilah anak orang sebab ada mak bapak).. pastu ko nak ajar orang lain esp orang Islam about "moral values and basic manners?" Come on la Chua. You have got to be kidding me. Cermin diri sendiri dulu sebelum nak kutuk ajaran agama orang lain... looser!!!
Nota : Daku nak letak gambo dia pun tak lalu... geleman.
