TTF: For the past three months or so, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been hosting the Mufti of Perlis, Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin aka Dr Maza, at his home in the wee hours of the morning.
Maza was tasked with tutoring The Prime Minister on the various aspects of Wahabism.
The plan is simple:
If it comes to a point that a ruler refuses to do what Mahathir tells him to do, a crisis will ensue.
The Prime Minister will then use the crisis as basis to trigger constitutional reforms once he succeeds in commanding the support of two thirds in Parliament.
He will then strip the ruler of his right to appoint Muftis.
Once that happens, people like Dr Maza would get a free pass to promote Wahabism without restraint to ‘liberalise’ Muslim youths in time for the 15th general election.
That is what the ruler of Perlis is trying to avoid.
However, he may have been checkmated.
Had he said no to the sacking of Imams (see news item below), the crisis he was attempting to avoid would have been triggered and resulted in Wahabism being promoted in in the long run.
But now that he’s agreed, Wahabism is about to rear its head in Perlis once Dr Maza replaces the sacked Imams with his people.
Either way, Mahathir wins.
KANGAR: The dismissal of 25 imam and the transfer of 10 others were carried out under the jurisdiction of the Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs), beyond the powers of the state government, said the State Islamic Religious Committee chairman Ruzaini Rais.
He said the state government was also not informed on the matter.
“I hope all the imam concerned would remain calm and not take action which could tarnish their good name.
“I hear those who are dissatisfied will hold a picket in several mosques after the Friday prayers tomorrow,” he told Bernama when contacted on Thursday.
Ruzaini urged the imam concerned to think before taking any action out of respect for the Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail as the president of MAIPs.
