Pahang National Civics Bureau (BTN) assistant director Ahmad Shah Jamlus said REJECTING RACE is UN-ISLAMIC and stressed that the religion and Malays are inseparable.
In the bureau’s blog, Ahmad pointed out that the creation of Adam and Eve implies differences in mankind as we are made of distinct races.
Ahmad said that the Quran says Allah has created nations and tribes and the most honoured are those with the most piety towards Allah.
“Therefore Malay and Islam cannot be separated. The first step in reaching a higher level of God-consciousness is established in the country’s constitution whereby under article 160 stipulates that a Malay must be a Muslim,” Ahmad wrote in an article, “Rejecting race or ethnicity is rejecting human nature,” on February 9.
Ahmad’s comments are bound to reignite fears that government has failed to revamp BTN.
The BTN, a state agency charged with running courses on patriotism for civil servants and undergraduates, came under fire last year for promoting racism.
Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s administration had promised a revamp of BTN’s courses following a widespread public outcry.
Last year, BTN deputy director Hamim Husin told to a Puteri Umno closed-door function that Malay rights is a mandate to rule the country.
Hamim had also made derogatory references to the Chinese and the Indian communities, saying each of their communities had only a vote each.

According to Ahmad Shah Jamlus's version of Islam, Muslims are supposed to be Racists. And also according to him, it is Un-Islamic to reject Racism. So, let's look at what the Koran says...
From the Chapter Title "Chambers" of the Koran.
In Translation ONE:
[49.13] O you men! surely We have created you of a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other; surely the most honorable of you with Allah is the one among you most careful (of his duty); surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.In Translation TWO, it is slightly different:
[49.13] O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)."Knowing each other" also has other connotations. It is also an Arabic Phrase associated with Copulation. ie, "when a Man Knew his Wife", then it means they will have sex with each other. At a Societal-Level, this could be interpreted as Inter-Marriage.
Let us examine this a little.
According to the Adam and Hawa Creation reflected here, it implies that all Humankind originated from ONE Coital Couple. How this coitus is deemed "Sinful" and yet part of the "Necessary Vehicle" to make babies will be left out of this discussion. How every human is is incestuous in that sense, will also be left out of this discussion.
I will open this discussion with the Singapore Race, and the American Race. There is no such thing as a Singapore Race, nor an American Race. So what then does the word Bangsa Amerika mean? Do you wish to call them as Warganegara Amerika then?
The same applies to Bangsa Thailand, or Bangsa Siam. Their borders were shifted, and what is today called Issan (Northeast Thailand) used to be Lao.
So one can change from Bangsa Lao to bangsa Thai just because someone decided to shift the borders? Do these people shit any different from before the borders were changed?
Back to Adam and Hawa. How can people be of "Different Races" if everyone was to come from the same parents? Would anyone in his right mind call his cousin a different race, or a different Tribe? Would Adam have called his grandchildren or even great-great-great- grandchildren spawns of a different race?
He would have had to be senile to do that ! ( i know the word Mahathir comes to mind, but let's be polite for today, ya?) So, using the Brain which Allah gave us, how can any of Adams great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandchildren call each other of a different race?
Didn't we all come from Adam and Hawa?
Did Allah make more than one Adam? If He did, then surely anyone from that "alternate Adam" would be free from the "Adamic Sin".
That Sin had nothing to do with Sex. That Sin has everything to do with a Talking-Snake and a fruit of unknown Species (I've proposed the Durian, but it has been rejected) in a particular Garden of which DNA tells us was in East Africa in the Olduvai Gorge near Laetoli. Combining modern day research allows us to conclude also that if God made Man in His own image, then God must look like Eddie Murphy, because, all mankind's origins started out in East Africa. So, sorry, God does NOT look Malay at all. He would look more like the Negritos at best.
Now, why did I suggest an "Alternative Adam". It's because that it is recorded in the Bible. Warakah was preaching from this same Bible, before Prophet Muhammad was born. And it would now depend on which Version his Arabic Bible was translated from.
In the Hebrew Bible, Cain and Abel (Hebrew: קין ,הבל, Hevel, Qayin) (Arabic: هابيل قابيل - Hābīl and Qābīl) are two sons of Adam and Eve. The Qur'an mentions the story, calling them the two sons of Adam (Arabic: إبني آدم) only,.
In the Greek New Testament, Cain is referred to as εκ του πονηρου. In at least one translation this is rendered "from the evil one", while others have "of the evil one." Some interpreters take this to mean that Cain was literally the son of the serpent in the Garden of Eden. A parallel idea can be found in Jewish tradition, that the serpent (Hebrew nahash נחש) from the Garden of Eden was father to firstborn Cain.
So, not only do we either have Eve being raped by a Talking Snake as a possibility, we also have an even greater and darker possibility that Eve either seduced or was seduced by a Talking Snake. I won't go into the story of Lilith, who was the original and first Wife of Adam on this. But the strange things about Lilith, is that not only did she divorce Adam, she went to a different Land and decided to marry other MEN, and bear a hundred children !!
Adam had competitors now? The same would apply to Cain, whom after God decided to put a mark on his forehead, so that he would be safe from the other Tribes. And this word is crucial !!
What other Tribes is the Bible referring to? How can Lilith marry m,en from other tribes, or Cain have a God-Tattoo on his head to protect him from other tribes if everyone was a descendant from Adam? Was Cain considered of a "different Tribe" because his Daddy was Mr Talking-Snake? Hence, all his other half-siblings had to limit the choice of their spouses to severe in-breeding, while he went off to the Land of Nod, to mate with Lilith's offspring and from the other Tribe(s) whom she married?
If, and only if this is true, then we can Justify Racism. Also important to note then, is that if Cain's Daddy was not Mr Adam himself, then many many "Tribes" of today would be completely free from that "Adamic Sin" which binds Mankind to justify "Salvation", via a Human Sacrifice.
In the bureau’s blog, Ahmad pointed out that the creation of Adam and Eve implies differences in mankind as we are made of distinct races. I'd like to contest this by asking what race is Adam, and what Race is Hawa? and if truly ALL mankind started out from ONE SEED, then the entire Human Race should be of the same race ! I think Ahmad Shah Jamlus's Mother dropped him when she gave birth to him, and he severely hit his head, leading to an even more severe delusional concussion !
I also find it so humorous that Ahmad Shah Jamlus equates the Malaysian Constitution to the Koran, as if Allah wrote the Malaysian Constitution Himself. Dear Ahmad Shah Jamlus. Allah laser-etched the 20 Commandments.
Why 20? coz Abraham broke the first Ten when he smashed the first set of stones, and had to go mountain-Climbing again to the Burning-Bush to request a second set be made.
Allah had nothing to do with the Malaysian Constitution. So, it is the Malaysian Constitution which states that Malays MUST be Muslim.
The Koran does NOT state that Malays must be Muslim. Therefore Malays need to choose between the Koran, or the Malaysian Constitution !!
And if you believe that everything on this planet has a purpose, then MY purpose, as instructed by ALLAH is to drum some logic into your nonsensical babble.
I hope some of you will argue the points above.
In fact, the more you argue, the stronger my point will be.
If we are all from the seed of Adam ONLY, then the entire world is of ONE RACE !!! So SHUT UP !!!
