What Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition want is for Muslims to embrace an anything goes attitude. For Muslims to reject such an open lifestyle is becoming synonymous to Islamisation creeping into Malaysia
There is something seriously wrong with DAP-led Pakatan Harapan when they want Malaysians and especially Malays to accept Beer Festivals, but yet reject PAS President Abdul Hadi Awang’s Private member’s Bill (RUU355).
Apparently that is the type of liberalism that Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition wants for Malaysia. One in which vices are encouraged while the idea of strengthening laws that are already in the books for Muslims is discouraged.
Those having views aligned with Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-opposition see the rejection of the Better Beer festival as imposing the values of one community over that of another.
Read Lim Guan Eng’s comments in the following link:
Those who are favor of the festival love to preach about one community trying to impose their values on another, yet what did they do when PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang introduced his Private Members Bill (RUU355); they were up in arms and hell bent against it.
Lim Kit Siang and those aligned with his way of thinking went on a campaigned to try to get non Muslims to believe that RUU355 would curtail the drinking, gambling and other illicit vices that they hold sacred in the name of freedom of choice.
Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition say that Muslims should not comment on an event like the Beer Festival because it has nothing to do with them.
Does anyone else see the irony in that?
In the view of non Muslims like Lim Kit Siang and those who hold to his way of thinking; Muslims should not comment on or interfere with events like Beer Festivals from taking place.
However, they (Lim Kit Siang and others) believe it is acceptable for them to comment on matters that pertain to Muslims. Why?
Patriarchal Lim Kit Siang believes he and those like him know what is best for Muslims and in their minds RUU355 is not good for Muslims.
What Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition want is for Muslims to embrace an anything goes attitude. For Muslims to reject such an open lifestyle is becoming synonymous to Islamisation creeping into Malaysia.
Those who use terms like Islamisation want Muslims to become so uncomfortable, that they (Muslims) embrace any type of liberal lifestyle that is presented to them. However seeing the writing on the wall, over twenty-five (25) NGOS protested against organizing alcohol and LGBT festivals.
There is little doubt that those who share the view of Lim kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition will want all Malaysians to say Yes to Beer, LGBT etc, but No to RUU355!
