Last month, investment associate Terence Nunis posted a video online of an imam at Jamae Mosque who, after a sermon, reportedly recited a prayer in Arabic that said “God grant us victory over Jews and Christians”, among other things.
Due to the vagaries of Facebook’s algos, a friend got on his news feed a post* containing a thread that had Muslims dissing Terence Nunis. One even sneered that Nunis learnt his Islam from his wife (he’s a convert) who only had 10 years of a Madrasah education.
My friend tot this comment hilarious as the sermon in question wasn’t conducted in a university mosque for those with doctorates in Islamic studies but in a neighbourhood mosque for ordinary Muslims**. And anyway, ten years of learning the Koran in a religious school sounded a pretty good basis for understanding the Koran. But maybe, he tot, the commenter tot only Muslim men are allowed to teach the Koran?
But as he didn’t want his flat to be burnt by mobs of upset Muslims, he kept quiet.
But he couldn’t help quoting the above from ST and asking ever so politely (he didn’t want his flat to be pillaged):
What are “the other things”?
The Muslims vanished from the thread and he was left alone. Talk of vanishing genies.
*The post was by Nunis’ dad who defended his son’s actions. But Muslim cynerwarriors hijacked the discussion thread like the PLO hijacked aircraft in the 1980s.
**ST reported last week in a heritage article that the mosque was named “Tamil milkmen’s mosque” in the vernacular.
