“Stop harping on this. The debate would never end,”
Internal Security Ministry’s Publications Control and Al-Quran Texts Unit senior officer Che Din Yusof, as reported by Malaysiakini
Good thing for you all, whatalulu is not part of the mainstream media. Aint even a mainstream blog, if there is such a thing.
And as for the "stop harping on this", well, Najib shouldn't have said it in the first place.
Now, as a loyal citizen of Malaysia, Lulu is duty bound to correct the wrong that Najib has done. And Lulu is glad of the online correction, both from the Muslims and the non-Muslims, coming forward to remind us of what the constitution says.
The Najib Statement
"Islam is the official religion and Malaysia is an Islamic state, an Islamic state that respects the rights of the non-Muslims and we protect them,"
followed by the Keris-muddin's statement
“Saya beri amaran kepada pemimpin MCA supaya berhenti membuat kenyataan sedemikian. Ingin saya tegaskan, saya bukan pemimpin naif yang akan membenarkan perkara ini berterusan. Amaran saya ialah berhenti membuat kenyataan,”
has caused Lulu to further ponder over the whole issue.
Have you ever committed yourself into something which you shouldn't have with your children, or your friend, only to realise you can't fulfil it? So, maybe you recruit your spouse/children to be the bad guy, stamp the foot a bit, scare everyone into thinking that because of him you can't do it, and you come out looking like the hurt hero?
Maybe, just maybe, MCA realises that they're not in a good position. Say something, their "partner" [without metioning names] in BN is going to kill them. Dont say anything, and they lose all the votes from people who object the notion of the nation being an Islamic state. And being the lapdogs that they are, they know which they need to fear more.
So, damned if you do, damned if you don't.
SO, maybe they get the keris guy to do the bad guy thing. Zoom in on them
Then maybe, they'll look like they cannot say anything, when the intention was memang not to say anything. And maybe keep some votes going their direction.
erhh... you get what Lulu's trying to say or not?
The other thing Lulu was thinking is that, maybe, soon, there will be an "advertisment break", whereby Umno Youth and MCA Youth [Lulu thinketh that it is below-eth the dignity of the head honchos to meet up and discuss something as "trivial" as this] will meet up for a close door meeting, and come out "holding hands" and "smiling", and of course, holding separate press conferences "explaining" how the issue has been "resolved" without, of course, telling us that the resolution is.
All inverted commas are intentional.
