RENUNG-RENUNGLAH WAHAI UMAT MELAYU
Inilah akibatnya bila Kristian mempergunakan kalimah Allah sewenang-wenangnya untuk menukar akidah Umat Islam :
CHRISTIANS HAVE ULTERIOR MOTIVE, SAYS PKR'S ZULKIFLI
Diangkat dari MALAYSIAKINI
Vocal PKR parliamentarian Zulkifli Noordin claims that he has proof that Christians have an ulterior motive behind their insistence on using the term Allah.
The Syariah lawyer turned politician also accused Christians of fanning the flames of religious discord with regards to this issue.
NONEQuoting a verse from the Quran, he said: "The Jews and the Christians will never be with us (on the same path as Muslims)."
"Why should they insist on using the word 'Allah'? There must be something wrong," he told Malaysiakini during a no holds barred interview this morning.
As for the alleged 'ulterior motive', Zulikfli displayed a booklet titled 'Jalan kepada Allah' (the way to Allah), which he claimed was distributed in a national primary school in 2000.
While refusing to divulge more details on the school or those behind the booklet, he said the booklets were given to students together with sweets and balloons.
NONE"So what is the purpose of this? In the booklet for instance, it says that 'Allah created the universe and everything in it', 'Allah created human beings including Adam and Eve'.
"Then it says, 'Adam and Eve were no longer loyal to Allah and were evicted from Eden'. To me, if this story is told to a Muslim boy, he will consider it perfect (from an Islamic point of view)," he said.
However, Zulkifli added, the booklet also mentioned that the "only way for human beings to be safe is to follow the guide of Allah's only son, Jesus."
"It says Jesus is Allah in human form… then the rest of the story elaborates on the role of Jesus and it no longer touches on Allah," he said.
“Ten years have passed since the booklets were distributed. For all you know, they have been doing this (distributing the booklets) to this date,” he added.
Support from non-Muslims
Despite coming under fire for his strong views pertaining to the Allah issue, the Bandar Baru Kulim MP claimed that he has received support from his non-Muslim friends.
"Since this issue erupted, I received a few emails and even calls from my non-Muslim friends saying that I have been consistent (with my principles on this).
"They expressed sadness over the controversy, saying that they could not understand what the fuss is all about," he said.
NONELast Tuesday, Zulkifli was slapped with a gag order by the PKR political bureau pending a disciplinary hearing over his decision to file a police report against PAS MP Khalid Samad after the latter called for the amendment of a Selangor religious enactment.
However, Zulkifli said that the gag order only concerned the police report and not the Allah issue.
The Allah controversy erupted following the Dec 31 Kuala Lumpur High Court ruling which allowed Catholic weekly magazine Herald to use the word 'Allah' in its Malay-language edition.
The court later granted the Home Ministry a stay of execution pending appeal.
