Pas calls Perlis mufti an 'Umno stooge'

KUALA LUMPUR: For his criticism of those responsible for "closing" the minds of Muslims, Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin has now become the target of Pas.


The Perlis mufti has been described as an alat Umno (an Umno stooge) in an article on the front page of its website Harakahdaily.net .

Kedah Umno religious bureau chairman Basorri Abu Hassan, who was shocked when he saw the article, said that it was unforgivable for an Islamic party to use such words against a well-respected religious scholar.

"Even if you don’t agree with him, you must respect the position of a mufti.

"Pas has resorted to such a low-class tactic. It will only reflect badly on the party."

He added that when he first saw the website on Sunday, the word alat was actually barua (pimp).

This word was replaced yesterday morning.

He also said the article was taken from another website Detikdaily, believed to be owned by Pas members, which still retained the word barua used in the original article.

The original article, written by one Pak Tam Mat, was headlined Mufti Asri sudah jadi "barua" Umno (Asri the Mufti has become a pimp for Umno).

The Harakahdaily headline was changed to Mufti Perlis sudah jadi alat Umno serang pembangkang (Perlis Mufti has become a stooge for Umno to attack the Opposition).

Basorri, who is also Jerai Umno Youth chief, said it was silly for Pas to attack Dr Mohd Asri who was not a politician but a state mufti, and appointed by the Raja of Perlis.

Dr Mohd Asri said he was disappointed with the use of such words to describe him, as it would once again reflect badly on Muslims and Islam.

"I am open and prepared to be criticised. I am ready to discuss and debate with anyone who has knowledge of Islam.

"But name calling and crude language is a reflection of the lowest level of intellect."

The Perlis mufti had allegedly made remarks that hurt the feelings of ultra-conservative Muslims, such as his call for religious authorities to stop spying for khalwat (close proximity) and to treat Muslim women with dignity.

Meluat aku nak masuk laman web ni lagi...
x habis2 nk berbincang isu dari satu sudut pandang (metodologi yg kononnya salafi)...
x maju lah Islam camni klu ada firqah yg berfikrah camni...
come on lar... utamakan kesatuan orang Islam...
hindarkanlah perbincangan akidah dan hukum-hakam yg ulama khilaf padanya...
cubalah bukak minda dan pengkajian ilmiyah (supaya tidak hanya tertumpu pd 'Bin Baz', 'Al-Uthaimin' dan 'Al-bani' shj)...

ana rasa pendapat saudara syng islam agak tersasar sedikit , sessungguhnya aqidah merupakan asas islam , jika ia tidak di bincangkan maka tersasarlah matlamat islamnya , mana mungkin dapat di bezakan seseorng itu muslim atau tidak ? cuba anda fikirkan dimanakan perjuangan Utama Rasulullah SAW , jika anda menidakkan perbincagan Aqidah bermakna anda telah secara tidak langsung , mengatakan strategi dakwah Rasulullah telah salah ,Nauzubillah ! . sesungguhnya berpeganglah dengan tali Allah maka kamu akan bersatu . tuduhan menyebabkan pepecahan bukan berlaku kini tetapi sejak bermulanya Dakwah Rasulullah , kerana golongan jahiliyyah bila di tanya siapa yg mencipatakan langit dan bumi mereka menjawab Allah , tetapi ajaran memahami Aqidah yg tulen yng di Sampaikan Rasulullah SAW menyebabkan mereka menolak dan mengatakan Rasul penyebab pepecahan . Wallahu'alam

Currently it seems like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform
out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Hello. I noticed your blog title, "Blogger: INSTITUT AL- IMAM SYAFIE (INTIS)" doesn't really reflect the content of your web site. When writing your site title, do you believe it's most beneficial to write it for Search
engine optimisation or for your visitors? This is
one thing I've been battling with because I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my visitors.

Browsing delicious.com I noticed your web site book-marked as: Blogger: INSTITUT AL- IMAM SYAFIE (INTIS).
I'm assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social book-marking gets you a ton of targeted traffic? I've been thinking about doing some social
bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn't certain if it would generate any positive results. Thank you so much.

Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.

Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my site
not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?
