JAKIM has really slipped up this time.
In their hurry to cover their incompetence, corruption and stupidity, JAKIM forgot to ban our New Year celebrations.
Every year, on the first of January, we celebrate the first day of the Gregorian calendar, which has its roots in Christendom.
Just in case anyone from JAKIM asks, “Apa itu Gregorian calendar?”
The Gregorian calendar is today’s internationally accepted civil calendar and is also known as the Western or Christian calendar. It was proclaimed in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII
In the space of two weeks, the JAKIM halal division was proven to be as fake as the supposedly halal beef on sale, which was probably kangaroo meat, horse meat or meat from a diseased animal.
Then to hide the bad news, about this meat cartel scandal, JAKIM tried to distract us with a warning to shops which possess JAKIM’s halal certification that they are banned from openly displaying Christmas cakes which had been iced with the words, “Merry Christmas”.
Will JAKIM be an utter spoil sport and put a stop to our New Year celebrations?
Will they do the same for the next big festival in Malaysia, which is Thaipusam, to be followed by Chinese New Year and Easter?
Will the Gawai harvest festival in Sarawak, or Pesta Ka’amatan in Sabah be put at risk from overzealous JAKIM officials? Muslims are already banned from celebrating Valentine’s day.
Tonight, as you make your New Year wish, please wish that JAKIM is banned.
Halal or not, Happy New Year to everyone!
Below is Auld Lang Syne in Malay…Enjoy! The video is not mine. It is from YouTube.
Lighten up JAKIM and let your hair or turban down once in a while!
For Malaysian youngsters born from the late 70s onwards, the video shows what Malaysia used to be like. None of that false Arabic dress, mannerisms or speech. This is multicultural Malaysia at its best, not pseudo Saudi-Arabia with all their wasabi soul destroying nonsense.
