The Muslim-led government of Malaysia has dealt with last-week's anti Hindu march in their usual fashion. Namely, by doing nothing. There have been no charges made against anyone, nor any arrests made--in a country where wearing a black t-shirt or holding a lit candle in public is enough to get arrested and charged with a crime. No Muslim religious figures have openly condemned the march or the bloodthirsty anti-Hindu overtones of said protest. In fact, the Malaysian Home Minister (the guy in charge of the police and domestic security in this country) has stated openly that the Muslim jihadists at the march (for that is what they are, even if they are sans bombs or guns for the moment) haven't really done anything wrong.
However, the creaky Malaysian government machinery has finally started to swing into action--they have asked a Malaysian news website to remove video of the protest from its website. So, in this case, doing nothing would have been an improvement.
Meanwhile, to add insult to injury, a group of Muslim 'missionaries' (more like experts in taqiyya and disinformation) have announced their findings regarding this tense situation. It seems that the whole ruckus is because there are too many Hindu temples in the country. Too many, you hear that?!? After decades of temple demolitions, brain drain and flight of countless kafirs from Malaysia, the bloody Mohammedans still have the Islamic gall to suggest that there are too many temples! Face it, my fellow kafirs, one temple in Malaysia would one be too many for these cheeky fellows, these all-wise scholars and practitioners of Islam.
It also turns out that members of both the ruling party (UMNO) and the supposed opposition party (PAS) participated in the anti Hindu march slash rally. Which goes to show, as I've said all along, it makes no difference whether the Muslims are in the 'ruling coalition' or in the 'opposition' or whatnot. A Muslim is a Muslim, full stop.
A writer at Forbes has written an unusually on-target piece about the whole sordid matter. Any emphasis added below is added by yours truly:
If you're looking for an image that captures the conflict between fervent Islam and basic human decency, look no further than the Malaysian city of Shah Alam, about 15 miles west of Kuala Lumpur.
On Friday, a group of about 50 men, agitated by plans to relocate a 150-year-old Hindu temple to their neighborhood, made their feelings clear by staging a protest march from a mosque to a government building. Amidst the usual cries of "Allahu Akbar" and "takbeer," the protesters deposited the freshly severed head of a cow--an animal sacred to Hindus--before the building's gate. The group's leaders made threatening speeches and, perhaps caught up in the spirit of the moment, hammed it up for the cameras, stepping and spitting on the cow's head. The police ... stood by and watched.
...Malaysia has rejected secularism in favor of a kind of ethnoreligious apartheid that belongs more in a medieval kingdom than in a modern democratic republic.
(In Malaysia,)...race and religion determine everything from your odds of getting into medical school to the amount you're expected to put down for an apartment. The conversion laws, based on sharia, bring to mind the Eagles' classic "Hotel California": You can check in (to Islam) any time you like, but you can never leave.
