And All This While, Lulu Was Told That Its So "Bukan Budaya Kita"

Home Ministry to allow protests against ‘Allah’ ruling

PUTRAJAYA, Jan 6- The Home Ministry will allow a public demonstration against the “Allah” ruling, planned by Muslim groups this Friday at the Kampung Baru mosque here, to proceed and will only take action if “things get out of hand.”

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein Onn (pic) told a press conference here at a post-Cabinet meeting that the developments will be monitored and that action will only be taken if the need arises.

“There is a balance that needs to be addressed. We (the Home Ministry) have faced this situation before. Right now, if you do not allow the protest, it will cause a lot of emotional reaction. But if you also allow it, it might turn into a security threat,” explained Hishammuddin.

The Home Minister asserted that the core issue was the issue of safety of the country, and that the group had already been advised against the protest.

maybe the "bukan budaya kita" are protests, demonstrations and vigils which are peaceful eg Bersih, ISA vigils and the oil hike demo.
and the "budaya kita" are like the ones where khairy demanded to see conderezza rice with his fella burning the us flag, where people drag a cow head and stomp on it and an ex-selangor mb goes to penang to protest against something which arose from bad reporting.

Lulu's beginning to get it.
If you protest for the sake of national interest, its wrong.
if you protest for political mileage, that is ok. its sanctioned and protected.

Let's see if someone try to organise a counter demonstration. See how they react!!

They did nothing but gave their silent approval to a bunch of jerks who demonstrated against the Anti-ISA crowd. See if they are gracious enough to allow a counter demonstration on the Allah non issue!!

it is not only 'not our budaya' issue. It is also a blatant display of how the ministry supports demonstration on religious issues so long as the demonstrators are pro-umno and are muslims. Consider this - this is not only a demonstration against a court decision but against the right of the catholics (another religion) to use a name. Can any other religion do the same without being sent to the slammer?
