Malaysia Goes All Out Against Shias

Rate this topic

Two Shia followers were arrested on August 5, 2013 by the Perak Islamic Religious Department. One of them is a woman who is a homeopathic practitioner. Her clinic in Taiping, Perak was raided by eight officers from the Perak Religious Council (JAIP) in which they seized various prayer books in her possession and then arrested her. She was then taken to a lock up facility in Pekan Baru, Perak.

 

 

In the same locality, another Shia adherent, Mr Mohd Ridhuan Yusuf (51 years old) was also arrested and taken to the Ipoh Police Headquarters. It is reported by witnesses that the officers from JAIP initially were to launch an ambush at the local Shiite Hauzah which is a [Edited Out]te community centre. However after discovering that the premise was locked, they then headed to Ridhuan’s house nearby. The officers barged into his house and seized his collections of books.

 

 

The detentions are clearly intolerable acts especially since Ms Azah (in the 40’s) is the mother of a 3 year old toddler in need of care. Furthermore with the fasting season coming to an end and with the Islamic festival of Eid around the corner, the timing of such an act by the authorities is highly questionable. The victims’ families are left to grapple with this arrest and related matters such as finding lawyers and raising the legal fees which is more difficult due to the festive season. Ethical and professional discretion by JAIP officers should have been the least among the many factors that should have been considered before engaging in such disgraceful conduct. They are suspected to be charge under Section 16 Sharia Criminal Law 1992 for defying Perak state’s fatwa on banning Shi’ism. If found guilty both will be fine RM3,000 and imprison for two years.

 

 

This incident is a result of the continuous harassments by the authorities and public targeted towards the Shia community in Malaysia due to their religious believes. Over the past few months and even more so during this holy month of Ramadhan, the government, media and right wing Islamic organizations have intensified the demonization of Shias in Malaysia thus sowing the seeds of hatred and discrimination. 


This is just the beginning... After almost 2 weeks of media coverage on the "Shia threat" on TV, radio and newspapers, the government will be trying to show that it means business this time.

Shia-Sunni unity is the key to resolve the whole issues, esecially sending billions of money and aids to Palestinian Nawasib, they say!

 

I doubt if anyone here will care for humanity, freedom, justice and tolerance... or the details in this report.

 

And at the end of the day surprisingly they blame Ahlul Bait (a.s) for what they do and for how they act.

 

I hope you got the point.

 

May God help the Shias of Malaysia and punish the fascist government in that country...

Shias of Malaysia? Indonesia and Malaysia have no tiny amounts of Shias (below 0.01%).

I thought Noah that you wanted to shutdown Sunni mosques in Iran where Sunnis are a large minority? Why does this bothers you? Double standards?

Syiah Followers Now At 250,000: Home Ministry

PUTRAJAYA, Aug 5 (Bernama) -- An estimated 250,000 Syiah followers have been identified nationwide consisting of 10 active groups, Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Abdul Rahim Mohamad Radzi said.

Ten years ago it was a small community with three camps, but now they have spread nationwide, he said.

"The development of information technology is among the factors for their growth as the teachings are spread through a range of social sites," he said here.

Syiah was gazetted as 'haram' (prohibited in Islam) by the Malaysian National Fatwa Council for Islamic Affairs, Muzakarah Special Committee on May 5 1996, as its teachings were feared to create factions among Muslims.

He called for the eradication of the Syiah movement to be a concerted effort by various agencies.

"This involves the Home Ministry, the police, Registrar of Societies, control of publications under the Printing and Publication Act, curbing the production of CDs and DVDs by the Film Censorship Board and monitoring by the Immigration Department," he said.

Abdul Rahim said JAKIM had the authority in terms of the movement's beliefs, Communication and Multimedia Ministry (social media), Foreign Ministry (foreign relations) and institutions of higher learning (Education Ministry).

He said two arrests were made, in 1996 under the Internal Security Act and 200 followers by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department in 2012, who were later released on a technicality during prosecution.

Ten books and publications have been banned so far, among them 'Pengantar Ilmu-Ilmu Islam', 'Dialog Sunnah Syiah' and 'Tafsir Sufi Al Fatihah Mukadimah', which were found to be in conflict with the teachings and principles of the Sunnah Wal Jamaah.

He noted that so far ten states had banned the Syiah movement under the Anti-Syariah Enactment whereas four states, namely Pahang, Kelantan, Sabah and Sarawak were in the process of doing so.

Meanwhile in IPOH, two individuals, including a woman doctor, were detained by the Perak Islamic Religious Department (JAIPK) in Kamunting, Taiping, today for alleged involvement in the Syiah movement.

In the raid, the department also seized books, CDs and posters, said JAIPK director Datuk Mohd Yusop Husin.

Shias 0.01% or only 20 people. Every person or a citizen of any country should be treated according to the law.

 

And can you tell me how this bothers me?

 

And how and when did I say to close down Sunni mosques in Iran?

 

When Sunnis are exposed... I am thanking God for that... I just 'pray' for oppressed ones... but on their expense you guys are exposed... I was saying that Hamas and Palestinian armed men are mainly playing in the hands of Zionists, they are Shia haters and one of the top ignorant cult on the planet... but people disagreed strongly for the last 7 years until they exposed themselves.... And now I am thankful to God that they are exposed, and when you say Hamas or Jihad or etc.. many Shias who live without thinking and are delusional, they do not have the courage to support them anymore... they even know now that these groups are scum of the earth. So thanks God for that.

Why are you rambling about Hamas.

You don't believe in giving Sunnis rights to preach and fully practice their faith in Iran, even while they are a big minority.

In Indonesia and Malaysia Shias are basically non-existent as citizens, the government has a right to kick them out.

But you state they have rights while opposing giving fully rights to Sunnis in Iran?

The Malaysian/Indonesian laws against Shia was partly due to the Syrian crises. As before, especially in Indonesia Hizb was very popular.

You are the one babbling about Hamas, you stated that in a previous post as well stating that you have no belief in democracy.

Also, Malaysia is treating Shias according to the law, it bans them, that's the law. As there are no Malaysian indigenous community.

And Syria is killing the terrorists the way it wants, that is the Baathist law! Stop crying and dreaming for your Khelafa... Because Khalid Ibn Walid's ass kicked... his bones were sold in soap market....

 

You and likes of you know nothing except Shabiha and likes of them.... deal with them...

Exactly the Bath'ist regime is also according to the law, that's why the regime will go down.

Criticizing for banning Shias is like criticizing Iran for banning Baha'is.

If you don't have a proper answer don't start cursing and using foul language, be civil.

Oh well, the Baathist also doing according to the law, but then the Baathist regime will go down? Why is that?

You like and enjoy the laws in Malysia but not in Syria and the regime must go down? Sunnis have the right to ban others, but if others ban Sunnis they must go down? I don't think so!

In 2006 indonesia witnessed demonstrations in support of Hizb.

Lately both Malaysia and Indonesia have had demonstrations against Assad his supporters.

The Syrian crises was seen as Sunni vs Shia leading to the public attack on shia I'm media outlets the article above speaks of.

Why on earth the admins here let a majassim nasibi like you pollute these forums is beyond me. If a Shi'i on a Salafi forum behaved as impudently as you they'd have been banned after their first post and the thread left open so other members could impune the chastity of the banned Rafidi's mother .

 

In sha Allah, the earth will be cleansed of your like sooner rather than later, and Islam will not be disparaged and ridiculed any longer for being an intolerant creed of Takfiri, beheading liver-eaters...

I think you should understand that the Yanks are in Afghanistan due to politics played by Iran and Tajiks in Afghanistan and the FAILURE of Iranian government IN TIME to understand that 9-11 FalseFlag was a racist Inside Job and that Israeli agent, Adam Gadahn penetrated the taliban. This is the reason for Terrorism in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Iran did not give support or advice to Musharraf when it was really NEEDED. The Americans bought the loyalty of the Northern Alliance with a rain of dollars very cheap and since then drugs have increased and poured into Iran as well as Pakistan. Nothing was gained by partisanship.

 

On the other hand, Mahathir bin Mohammad showed his smarts and insight during the Asian currency crisis. Malaysia was the only one. The Shia Tajiks went after the rain of dollars to backstab their countrymen, the Pashtuns. In addition, the Tajiks are creating big mischief by talking about changing Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

 

It is also true that right after 9-11, Mahathir was the first to clearly say that "jews fight by proxy."

 

The second fact is that Divisiveness and beating the drum to gain more converts is not helpful.

 

Thirdly, the actions of some shia elements, namely, Altaf "Bhai" of the Mohajir Qaumi Movement (MQM) and corruption of Asif Ali Zardari have been quite damaging to Pakistan and the Pakistani nation.

 

It would be better if we, the Shia look into our own deeds and introspection, rather than pointing fingers at the sunni, except when we deal with the wahhabis and our righteousness is clear.

The anti-shia law will soon be passed in all of the 14 states. Once the law is passed, practicing shiism will be illegal on Malaysian soil if you are a Malaysian citizen. Our shia brothers can help this from becoming a reality if pressure is put on the malaysian govt.

BAN TO SHIA PRACTICE AND PUBLICATION IN MALAYSIA: MORE VIOLATION TO HUMAN RIGHTS

ON 01 AUGUST 2013. POSTED IN MALAYSIASRW was informed by Shia of Malaysia that there will be more restriction on Shia practices and teachings in that country. Moreover there will be a ban on any publication, books or even novels that were written Shia Muslims.SRW is concerned about the new laws that limit Shia’s freedom of religion and expression. All minorities need education and publication for their population and banning any religious practices and educational resources is a clear violation to human rights. Such banns and limitations threat the existence of minorities and are considered ethnical cleansingIt is very unfortunate to know that the government not only permits such violations but also do not view them as human rights violation. Under International Bill of Human Rights, ASEAN Human Rights Declaration, and the Islamabad Declaration Malaysia must protect the right of Shia Muslims to practice their faith.SRW has sent out official letters to Y.B. Mejar Jeneral Dato' Seri Jamil Khir Bin Baharom, YAB Dato Paduka Haji Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir and Y.A.B. Dato' Sri Mohd. Najib Bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak and asked them to reconsider the ban on the Shia Muslims’ teachings and publications. This organization hopes Malaysian government make the right decision and recognize Shia as rightful citizen.

As I stated these restrictions are the same that places on minorities such as Baha'is

You mean a few terrorist-Sunnis rising up? I don't see the real people rising up!

 

The effect on Shias worldwide will not be even 0.00001% if Malaysia bans or unban Shias... but thank God, as I said Sunnis are exposed. This is very very helpful for Shias' unity, taking steps against Sunni puppets wherever we could, of course if the stupid Iran wakes up completely.

You don't know much about Afghanistan, do you? And I have no idea why you went on and on with these kind of baseless info under this thread?

 

Anyhow, the Tajiks in Afghanistan are about 90% SUNNI (mainly non-Salafi). The Uzbeks in Afghanistan are almost all SUNNI, the Turkmen in Afghanistan are majority SUNNI.... They are the ethnics who constitute the Northern Alliance. The only group who represent Shias of Afghanistan amongst Northern Alliance, are the Hazaras (who are majority Shia)... And a few other small Shia-minorities.

 

The Afghan government who took over after invasion of America made up of almost 50% or more of Sunni Pashtuns loyal to the west. Like President Karzai, a Sunni Pashtun is the first president who runs til today with many Sunni-Pashtuns ministers and officials exported from the western countries. And the northern alliance of course making the half of the rest of the government (who as I explained above is also a majority Sunni alliance). Shias in Afghanistan make between 20 to 25% of Afghanistan including the Ismailia Shias.. in the government only Hazara Shias have a few seats and that is because of representing the Hazaras ethnic... as the make up of the Afghan government is ethnicwise just like Lebanon, but unofficial. I hope now you have a little info on Afghanistan before making wrong statements...and fabricating things.

^ Didnt the nothern alliance go after the rain of dollars after 9-11 falseflag? It is possible that it might be the CIA who killed Ahmad Shah Masood before attacking Afghanistan, just as the CIA/Mossad arranged the rape of Serebrenica and other conflicts in Yugoslavia and in Chechnya before attacking, ie estrangement and divide before conquer?

 

OK, I agree that maybe the Afghan Tajiks are not mostly shia. What is the population percentage of various groups, sunni, hazara, ismaili?

I think everyone should fix themselves. Iran has lots of drugs and so does Pakistan. Pakistan also has lots of corrupt rulers, both sunni and shias which Iran should help fix or give us better replacements. I am talking of MQM Altaf Hussain and his other buddies and Asif Ali Zardari, and please send a better Kashmiri like Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and take this corrupt thief Nawaz Sharif (Badmuash).

 

Please shame them on every visit to Iran. Please treat Pakistan as your own. Only talk of SPECIFIC individuals, no generalizations in a person to person conversation.

The Malaysian government is seeking to prevent Shia Islam from spreading -- despite the country's hosting a 250,000-strong Shia population.


Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Abdul Rahim Mohamad Radzi announced on Monday that Shia followers who were only a small community of three camps 10 years ago are now a population of 250,000, including 10 active groups, across Malaysia. 

"The development of information technology is among the factors for their growth as the teachings are spreading through a range of social sites,” Radzi said, urging that the Shia movement be rooted out. 

He went on to say that eradication measures “involve the Home Ministry, the police, Registrar of Societies, control of publications under the Printing and Publication Act, curbing the production of CDs and DVDs by the Film Censorship Board and monitoring by the Immigration Department.” 

Radzi further added that 10 states have barred Shia movement so far, based on anti-Shariah Enactment, while the government’s anti-Shia measures are underway in four states namely Pahang, Kelantan, Sabah and Sarawak. 

In the meantime, in Perak’s city of Ipoh, the Perak Islamic Religious Department arrested two people, among whom a woman doctor for their alleged involvement in Shia movement. 

There has been a surge in anti-Shia measures in Malaysia in recent weeks, with the government trying to crack down on Shia followers more than ever.

Interview with Sheikh Kamilzuhairi, one of the shia leaders in Malaysia.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuRulf-ZsBE#at=221


Malay Shia: Don't link us to Iran or Hezbollah
  • Published on 2013-08-11 02:00:16
  •  
The Shias in Malaysia are once again under attack, this time coming from the newly minted Chief Minister of the state of Kedah. He has put in motion efforts to halt the spread of Shia in his state. And he has the support of a Federal Minister in charge of religious affairs in the Prime Minister's department; not to mention the support of his father, former premier Mahathir Mohamad. Government controlled mainstream media are also taking the queue from the two Ministers, sprouting anti-Shia articles and stories in the newspapers, television and radio. We speak to Mohd Kamilzuhairi Abdul Aziz of Shia community centre, Hauza Ar Ridha on the latest attack. The last attack on the Shia community was 3 years ago during the celebration of Imam Hussein's martyrdom in the Muslim month of Muharram. Now he says it's in the holy month of Ramadhan. Mohd Kamilzuhairi Abdul Aziz attributes the recent attacks with the Syrian civil war, now raging, which seems to pitch a controlling Shia minority under Bashir Al Assad and the marginalised Sunni majority. In other parts of the Muslim Arab world, Shia Muslims in countries like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain. In refuting the fears that Malaysian Shias could cause division and trouble amongst Muslims, Mohd Kamilzuhairi Abdul Aziz said that analysts have already said that what's happening in Syria isn't a sectarian conflict but a conflict fuelled by the US and Israel for their own regional interests. In countries such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain it is about minorities asking for their rights as citizens. "Don't equate us with Hezbollah or Iran. Much as we admire them in their war with Israel and the US, it is their conflict. It has nothing to do with us," he said. "We have the rule of law and the Federal Constitution and international bodies like the OIC to turn to," Mohd Kamilzuhairi added.

Can you please provide an other source on the existence 250,000 shias?

Of course, I assume that these people are citizens of the country?
