Well, that puts it out there – concern with human rights is a “deviation” that gets in the way of religious rules and demands and childish petty meddling with everybody’s happiness. The PM of Malaysia is against it.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Islam and its followers are now being tested by new threats under the guise of humanism, secularism, liberalism and human rights.
He said this mindset appeared to be becoming a new form of religion which was fast expanding locally and abroad.
“They call it human rightism, where the core beliefs are based on humanism and secularism as well as liberalism.
“It’s deviationist in that it glorifies the desires of man alone and rejects any value system that encompasses religious norms and etiquettes. They do this on the premise of championing human rights,” he said.
Yes, that’s right, you horrible bully. The desires of human beings are real while “religious norms” are derived from a god who isn’t there and would be a vicious tyrant if it were there. Human rights are better than religious norms and etiquettes. Much better.
“So today, once again, we stress that Islam that is embraced, practised and upheld as the national religion in Malaysia is the Islam which is based on the Sunni sect as propagated by the Prophet Muhammad and his friends.
“We will not tolerate any demands or right to apostasy by Muslims, or deny Muslims their right to be governed by Shariah Courts and neither will we allow Muslims to engage in LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) activities,” he said.
He said as a Islamic country which upheld the Maqasid Shariah (the implementation of Shariah laws based on the Quran and Sunni doctrine), Malaysia emphasised the welfare of every individual regardless of race, language or religion.
No, dude. No it doesn’t. That’s not what it does. It does the other thing. It does the opposite of what you said. The opposite. Not tolerating any “demands” for “apostasy” – meaning, for the right and freedom to refuse to be a Muslim and to refuse to submit to a god – is not emphasizing the welfare of every individual regardless of race, language or religion. It is the opposite of that.
