M’sia offers to help minority Malays in other countries

BUT IGNORED THE MUSLIMS OF OTHER RACES

EVEN INSIDE THEIR COUNTRY

COMMENT: Malaysian government used to ignore the Myanmar/Burmese Muslim migrants in their country.

Red tape and toll gates managed by ‘Little Napoleons’ everywhere

This is against the Islamic teaching and the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS CONCEPT.

Regarding the economic rights, the Holy Quran says:

And in their wealth there is acknowledged right for the needy and destitute. (51:19)

Anyone who needs help, irrespective of the race, religion or citizenship has a right in the property and wealth of the Muslims.

If you are in a position to help and a needy person asks you for help or if you come to know that he is in need, then it is your duty to help him.

“Indeed, the noblest among you before God are the most heedful of you” (49:13).

  1. The division of human beings into nations, races, groups and tribes is for the sake of distinction, so that people of one race or tribe may meet and be acquainted with the people belonging to another race or tribe and co-operate with one another.
  2. This division of the human race is neither meant for one nation to take pride in its superiority over others nor is it meant for one nation to treat another with contempt or disgrace, or regard them as a mean and degraded race and usurp their rights.
  3. Indeed, the noblest among you before God are the most heedful of you (49:13).

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in address of the Farewell Hajj_

  1. “No Arab has any superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab.
  2. Nor does a white man have any superiority over a black man or the black man any superiority over the white man.
  3. You are all the children of Adam, and Adam was created from clay” (al-Bayhaqi and al-Bazzaz).
  1. “- – – today’s human rights violations are the causes of tomorrow’s conflicts.” by Mary Robinson, High Commissioner for Human Rights(1997-2002).
  2. If we discriminate others as foreign because they, their race and religion are different to us, all the others could also look down and discriminate on us because we are also foreign to them!
  3. “Well, there are people who think that it’s right to do any thing in the name of their religion, their race, their family, or any organization to which they may belong.” Daw Aung San Suu Kyi

From the UN Charter_

  1. The purposes of the United Nations are – – – to achieve International cooperation – – – in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language and religion…”
  2. “Equality, justice, dignity” is the emblem that represents the goals of the Human Rights Committee. The comprehensive implementation of actions against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerances is a very important topic because these forms of intolerances have been global issues since biblical times.
  3. For decades, thousands of people have been victims of discrimination, preferences and exclusions in view of their race, skin color, sex, religion, language, national or ethnic origin and form of expression, causing extreme suffering and even loss of life.
  4. Racial discrimination is the ability or power to make distinctions among people based on race, color, decent, national or ethnic origin rather than individual merit.
  5. Xenophobia is a fear of the foreign, of what is strange.
  6. Religious intolerance occurs when someone’s opinions and beliefs are not respected by others due to their religion or way of thinking.
  7. In extremely religious or less developed countries, sexism is practiced, and racial discrimination is not considered wrong. In addition, the methods of solving racism could not appeal to all countries. Lots of people believe that they have the right to segregate others and feel superior to them, just because they are different to what they are used to.
  • The United Nations exSecretary General, Kofi Annan stated_

There is no country in the world exempt of discrimination. No matter how severe or how mild the ratio of discrimination is, no nation is free from it. Either for one circumstance or another, not all countries are capable of giving the importance and dedication this issue needs. Even though we are all consciously aware of this topic, there is still a long road to cross.

“Ignorance and prejudice are the handmaidens of propaganda… Our mission therefore is to confront ignorance with knowledge, bigotry with tolerance, and isolation with outstretched hand of generosity. Racism can, will and must be defeated. Almost every country in the world suffers prejudice among its own people, either racial discrimination, xenophobia or religious intolerance.”

The importnce of overcoming misunderstandings and animosities between the people of different beliefs and cultural traditions is throughpeaceful dialogue and mutual respect.

*The Holy Quran lays down_

  1. Whosoever kills a human being without (any reason like) man slaughter, or corruption on earth, it is as though he had killed all mankind … (5:32)
  2. “And whoever saves a life it is as though he had saved the lives of all mankind” (5:32).
  3. “Do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression” (5:2).

 

 

M’sia offers to help minority Malays in other countries

BUT IGNORED THE MUSLIMS OF OTHER RACES

EVEN INSIDE THEIR COUNTRY

The government is willing to help Malays in other countries where they are a minority, said Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

The offer to help is towards the advancement of Malays in these countries, he added at a convention in Malacca last night.

najib tun razak photos 211008 02Najib, due to be elected as the Umno president next March, said Malaysia could be a gateway for this through the Malay World Musim World (DMDI) forum.

The forum is a platform for the Malay/Muslim nations to unite and cooperate.

Najib said Malays in countries such as the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Cambodia, South Africa and southern Thailand were those who could be assisted.

“Of course the Malays in these countries must be realistic. They cannot expect us to support them in taking up arms for a revolution to establish Malay governments in them,” he however said.

He said this when opening the forum’s 9th convention.

Also present were Malacca Chief Minister Mohd Ali Rustam and Youth and Sports Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Portray Islam as ideal religion

Najib added that the DMDI could play constructive role in bringing about peace in southern Philippines and southern Thailand.

Najib was reported in Bernama as saying that Malaysia had played an active role in southern Philippines towards ending the Moro conflict though the peace process there had encountered some obstacles lately.

He added that the DMDI should do all it could to portray Islam as an ideal religion which strived for the advancement of all peoples.

At the function, Mohd Ali, who is also DMDI president, presented Najib DMDI’s Mansyur Shah award which was a special recognition in honour of the Malacca empire during the reign of Sultan Mansyur Shah.

Over 500 participants from, among others Malaysia, South Africa, the Philippines and Indonesia participated at the DMDI convention which ends today.
