An Islamic religious scholar declared it “haram” (forbidden) for Muslims to support DAP, according to a front page story today by Umno’s Utusan Malaysia,
Even when DAP has Muslim members?
Do you then eat and partake of your brothers’ flesh?
Abdullah Sa’amah (Who? No one has really heard of him before this! And just who gave him the title of scholar?) ) said that Muslims must not vote for DAP and its two allies PAS and PKR in the federal opposition pact of Pakatan Rakyat.
The Holy Qur’an tells us not to make haram what is halal and not to make halal what is haram.
He who does so commits shirk, the one sin that God will not forgive.
In this holy month of Ramadhan what does Utusan Malaysia do?
In the midst of their fasting and terawih prayers and payment of religious tithes!
Do the directors and editors of Utusan Malaysia not fear God?
Do they arrogate to themselves the right to legislate what is halal and haram when that is the sole domain of God?
Do they now make themselves partners to God?
