923089_576322912401152_1069880995_nI’ve been charged for sedition for what I said in the KL & Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall on the night of 13th May, this  year.

Fine.

We will fight this out in court.

But arrest Maznah Mohd Yusof, also known as Chetz Yong, to investigate her for possible sedition over an Aidilfitri video featuring her dogs?

I was not cuffed when arrested.

Thamrin was not cuff when he was arrested.

Tian Chua was not cuffed when arrested.

Why cuff Chetz, even if she had to  be arrested?

Here’s a photo of my buddy, Lina, together with her family, kept company with man’s best friend.

In solidarity with Chetz, Pak Mie and Lina, I am going to reproduce here much of what I wrote in a previous post.

Dogs are truly man’s best friend.

I should know.

I have 9 of them at  home.

What’s the Qur’anic position on dogs?

Unless I am mistaken, the canine is mentioned in Surah 5 and Surah 18.

Surah 18 first.

Verses 9-26 narrate a story about a number of young men who were believers and who sought refuge in a cave from persecution by non-believing fellow villagers.

Verse 18 describes their state in the cave.

‘And you might think them awake while they were asleep and We  turned them about to the right and to the left, while their dog  (kalbuhum) (lay) outstretching its paws at the entrance; if you looked at  them you would certainly turn back from them in flight, and you  would certainly be filled with awe because of them’ – translated by Shakir

Verse 22 alludes to the speculation by others as to the numbers in the cave.

‘(Some) say: (They are) three, the fourth of them being their  dog (kalbuhum); and (others) say: Five, the sixth of them being their dog (kalbuhum), making conjectures at what is unknown; and (others yet) say:  Seven, and the eighth of them is their dog (kalbuhum). Say: My Lord best  knows their number, none knows them but a few; therefore contend  not in the matter of them but with an outward contention, and do  not question concerning them any of them’ – translated by Shakir.

Nowhere in the Qur’an were these refugees in the cave chastised for having a dog as their companion.

Now Surah 5.

Verse 4 refers to that which is lawful to eat.

‘They ask thee what is lawful to them (as food). Say: lawful  unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what ye have taught your trained hunting animals (mukallibina) (to catch) in the manner  directed to you by Allah: eat what they catch for you, but pronounce the name of Allah over it: and fear Allah; for Allah is swift in taking account’-translated by Yusof Ali.

Do you notice the ‘kalb’ of ‘dog’ in Surah 18 and ‘kallib’ that has been translated as ‘hunting animals’ in Surah 5?

I wonder what hunting animal that might be?
