Muslims: Cut MM sume slack

In Uncategorized on 29/01/2011 at 5:25 am

MM has a point abt some younger Muslims refusing to eat at where non-halal food was being eaten. “And they tend to sit separately so as not to be contaminated. All that becomes a social divide.”

And remember last yr juz before CNY, a Malay principal was overruled when he made the school tuckshop halal. Only halal food could be sold. And kids were not allowed to bring non-halal food to school. His reasoning waz that over 50% of students were Muslims.

This and this are replies from Muslim organisations, but this Hard Truth of MM was not addressed, Why?

Because it is a Hard Truth?

BTW, I find the silence of the minister for Malay matters, PM and SM worrying on this point worrying. They may disagree with MM on the other points he makes abt Muslims, but on this point they should support MM.

And where is the “constructive, nation-buiding” on this issue? Most reports omit the bit, “And they tend to sit separately so as not to be contaminated. All that becomes a social divide.”

Come on ministers and media, rally behind MM!
