The IFC threat and pluralism

No living soul, even animals will sit still if their rights and territories are encroached.

China is pissed-off with Japan because the Land of the Rising Sun has considered a small island, Senkaku, as part of its territory. China named the disputed island as Diaoyu. The Philippines too caused China and other countries including Malaysia to raise eyebrows when it sent 800 additional troops to Pagasa Island in the Spratly. The group of island is being claimed by several countries around he South China Sea

What is happening in Malaysia is the idea of religious pluralism develops through indirect approach. It can be seen in various issues. In 2001, the idea came about to form IFC. This body is a commission set up as a statutory entity that has legal power to change the teaching of a religion due to the demand of other religion.

The set up of IFC was proposed by the Malaysian Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism and Sikhism (MCCBCHS) through their memorandum sent by the President of the MCCBCHS to the Bar Council dated August 21, 2001.

There were 14 demands of the IFC:

For animal, their territory is based on the place where they urinate and discharge. Muslims too will be furious if their religion is insulted. The entire ummah will rise up to defend their religion. So it is not wrong if we are to remind each other so that there are no quarters who bring up the issue that intrude the rights of others. It is not wrong if I remind Muslims in this country on the demand for the proposed set up of IFC or Interfaith Commission, which came about not long ago, but was rejected by the government.  As we are often forgetful, my intention is just to remind because it is not possible that the demand will turn into reality if the BN government with UMNO as the backbone, toppled in the coming 13th General Election (GE

13).  With sincere intention to remind each other, read about IFC, pluralism and the demand. Religious Pluralism movement in Malaysia is not that glaring or official as in Indonesia. In Indonesia, on July 28, 2005, the Indonesia Ulama Council (MUI) came up ith a fat wa (decree) that ban pluralism. In the fatwa, religious pluralism is defined as: “A belief that accepts all religion as the same and because of that the truth of every religion is relative:  As such, every believer cannot demand that only his religion is right whereas other religion is wrong. Pluralism also teaches that all religious followers will enter and live side by side in heaven.” MUI has explicitly stated that pluralism in the context of religion is contrary to the teaching of Islam.  What is happening in Malaysia is the idea of religious pluralism develops through indirect approach. It can be seen in various issues. In 2001, the idea came about to form IFC. This body is a commission set up as a statutory entity that has legal power to change the teaching of a religion due to the demand of other religion. The set up of IFC was proposed by the Malaysian Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism and Sikhism (MCCBCHS) through their memorandum sent by the President of the MCCBCHS to the Bar Council dated August 21, 2001. There were 14 demands of the IFC:  A child born of Muslim parents should not automatically be a Muslim;  A non

Musims can o anyting witout any imit; Muslims to become apostate; IFC has the right to determine the religious status of a person. As Muslims who hold steadfastly to the teaching of Islam as preached by Prophet Muhammad SAW, we should vehemently oppose the set up of IFC. There is no religion in the world which welcomes the interference of those from other faiths. The set up of the IFC will surely create tension between religions and threaten the security of the country.  As such, I as Malaysian and a Muslim, has the right to remind the threat to all.  As the adage says: Do not play with fire…

Solutions to address Bible issue
Press statement by
Datuk Seri Idris Jala, Minister in the Prime Minister
s
Department, on a 10
-
point solution.
 
THE Government confirmed that it has been in dialogue with the Christian groups to
look into their specific requests on the Bahasa Malaysia/Indonesia Bible and also other religious issues. Taking into account the polarity of views of the different
religious groups, including the Muslims, the Government decided on a 10
-
point solution.
 
1. Bibles in all languages can be imported into the country, including Bahasa Malaysia/Indonesia.
 
2. These Bibles can also be printed locally in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and
Sarawak. This is a new development which should be welcomed by the Christian
groups.
 
3. Bibles in indigenous languages of Sabah and Sarawak such as Iban, Kadazan
-
Dusun and Lun Bawang can also be printed locally and imported.
4. For Sabah and Sarawak, in recognition of the large Christian community in these
states, there are no conditions attached to the importation and local printing of the
Bible in all languages, including Bahasa Malaysia/Indonesia and indigenous languages. There is no requirement for any stamp or serial number.
 
5. Taking into account the interest of the larger Muslim community, for Peninsular Malaysia, Bibles in Bahasa Malaysia/Indonesia, imported or printed, must have the
words
Christian Publication
and the cross sign printed on the front covers.
 
6. In the spirit of 1Malaysia and recognising that many people travel between Sabah 
and Sarawak and Peninsular Malaysia, there should be no prohibitions and restrictions for people who bring along their Bible and Christian materials on such
travels.
 
7. A directive on the Bible has been issued by the Ketua Setiausaha (KSU) of the Home Ministry to ensure proper implementation of this Cabinet decision. Failure to comply will subject the officers to disciplinary action under the General Orders. A comprehensive briefing by top officials, including the Attorney
-
General (AG), will be given to all relevant civil servants to ensure good understanding and proper implementation of the directive.
 
8. For the impounded Bibles in Kuching, Gideon, the importer can collect all the 30,000 Bibles free of charge. We undertake to ensure the parties involved are reimbursed. The same offer remains available for the importer of the 5,100 Bibles in Port Klang, which have already been collected by the Bible Society Malaysia (BSM)
last week.
 
9. Beyond the Bible issue, the Government wishes to reiterate its commitment to work
with the Christian groups and all the different religious groups in order to address inter
-
religious issues and work towards the fulfilment of all religious aspirations in accordance with the Constitution, taking into account the other relevant laws of the
country. In order to bring urgency to this work, the Prime Minister will meet the representatives of the Christian Federation of Malaysia (CFM) soon to discuss the way forward.
 
10. The Christian ministers in the Cabinet will meet on a regular basis with
representatives of the various Christian groups in order to discuss their issues and
work with the relevant ministries and the PM in order to resolve them.
 
I hope this 10
-
point solution will be received positively by the Christian groups as being fair and reasonable. We have to look for a solution that deals with the Bible
issue and also put a way forward to handle other issues raised by the Christian
