JUST STOP IT. The country needs reforms – not stupidity!

To be deliberately stupid goes against the fundamental teachings of Islam


Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Islam (and all other religions) is about kindness and forgiveness.

But lately, certain Malaysian Muslims have been deliberately unkind and unforgiving. They have tarnished the good name of Islam.

They have brought extreme anxiety to those of us who represent the compassion of Islam and humanity.

Those of us who live our lives in moderation and inclusiveness, who accommodate difference, and work towards ‘saving’ Malaysia’s social vibrancy and plurality, will keep striving, DESPITE you.

But it has been very, very difficult amid all these distractions and irritations.

Apart from transgressing kindness and forgiveness, you errant Malaysian Muslims (and too many among our leadership) have desecrated Allah’s fundamental message to humanity.

You have deliberately rejected reason and rationality.

In other words, to be deliberately STUPID goes against the fundamental teachings of Islam.

Lastly, the string of recent events in the country has further divided the nation along ethno-religious lines. These were instigated by evil politicians.

And to enable such events during the month of Ramadan is unconscionable.


To create unrest in the name of power, politics and self-interest is evil. It is hard to believe such acts are done in the name of faith and spirituality, which is what you’d like us to believe.

Rather, many of us are disgusted by the current slew of deviant politicians who lord over us. We are equally horrified at so many others among the public who have no minds of their own.

They are easily influenced. They are mentally phlegmatic, apathetic and lazy.

They have shown how easy it is to be mentally manipulated. They are swayed by the deviant thinking of these so-called defenders of Islam.

May Allah forgive the lot of you.

And may Allah guide the deviants back to the path of reform.

The country needs reforms, not stupidity.

The 16th. YDP Agong wanted the unity government to succeed and so also his brother rulers but there are evil forces in this country that want to see this government fail and it looks like they’re doing a good job of it all
