Any CHINESE (whether Muslim or not) Who is Worth his Mettle BEHAVES with HONOUR
and a Malay-Wannabe
Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia
Gentle Reminder to Mohd Ridhuan TEE and to ALL Religious Converts:
Excerpts: Read here for more
- NEVER EVER FORGET: You can Undo Your Religion, But You Can NEVER Undo Your RACE.
- Your RACE is in your GENES, NOT your Religion
- Your Behaviour NOT only will Disgrace your Religion, But More So will Disgrace the RACE You were Born In
- And the CHINESE are TOO Proud a Race to Allow One of Their Own to Behave Dishonourly and Disgustingly.
Mohd Ridhuan TEE's article in Utusan Malaysia branding Teoh Beng Hock's unborn child as illegitimate is yet another attempt to dishonour and denigrate the NON-Muslim, NON-Malay dead.
Mohd Ridhuan TEE seems to portray Teoh Beng Hock's death as deserved, an act of God so to speak.
Many Chinese, Malays and Indians were incensed by Mohd Ridhuan TEE's article which was clearly aimed at exonerating the MACC and Umno by disparaging Teoh in the eyes of the Malays.
The average Chinese Malaysian expects that any Chinese worth his salt, even a CHINESE convert like Mohd Ridhuan TEE, to defend his own actions in the court of public opinion.
The Chinese in Malaysia expect a certain response, a certain standard of behaviour from their own when it comes to open uncensored debate, and rough and tumble public discussion.
No honourable Chinese citizen in Malaysia will ever invoke religious or racial privilege in justifying his opinions or actions even if he happens to be Muslim.
Any Chinese anywhere in the world, convert or otherwise, who invokes religious privilege by saying " Don't question me", "Don't criticise my actions", or "Don't question my religiosity" will incur huge loss of respect, and even contempt, by a rough and tough hard working community.
Unlike Umno which has retained political power and accumulated individual wealth for its leaders by invoking racial and religious privilege, NO Chinese person in Malaysia will ever say,
"Do not question me, do not question my religion, or do not question my motives."That sort of thing might work well for the Malays, at least for Umno in the past.
(The) 'don't question me' privileged approach by Chinese leaders has NEVER gone down well with local Chinese voters.
As far as the Chinese are concerned, EVERYTHING can be questioned, and if you cannot answer, that means it cannot be justified, or that you are stupid, or that you are hiding an untruth.
Ask 1,000 Chinamen a question, and you will get 10,000 opinions - rambunctious, impertinent, irreverent, and in-your-face.
They don't particularly care if you are Muslim or Christian or Buddhist or Taoist or Hindu.
Defending the Action of a Chinese Muslim Convert by PKR MP Zulkifli Noordin
I hope PKR's Kulim MP Zulkifli Noordin knows what type of person he is defending when he launched a scathing criticism against DAP Youth for coming out in defence of Teoh Beng Hock.
Zulkifli Noordin has to decide whether he thinks a CHINESE convert like Riduan Tee's opinions and views should be accorded full Islamic and Malay privileges.
Zulkifli Noordin should tell the Chinese community if Ridhuan Tee is above criticism BECAUSE he's Muslim convert, or whether Ridhuan Tee can indeed be questioned openly about his personal motives, religious beliefs and absence of common decency.
I should mention to Zulkifli Noordin that if you accord Ridhuan Tee any ethnic apartheid privileges such that he should be considered ABOVE criticism for his 'bastard' Utusan article, then I expect Ridhuan Tee, (who is a Chinese by birth) together with his (ISLAMIC) religious beliefs that he so publicly professes, would lose considerable respect from many NON-Muslims in Malaysia.
It is a question of whether Muslims in Malaysia feel that Islam is ready to be debated, questioned or criticised by anyone at all in a Muslim-majority country in the same manner that Christianity, and religion in general, can be openly debated, questioned and criticised by Christians and non-Christians alike in the Christian West.
The same treatment from the CHINESE community goes for any NON -Muslim CHINESE too
...like THIS one.
"FUNERAL" RITES for
It is YOU, Who is Kiasu, Dr.Ridhuan Tee, NOT the Chinese Community.

Assalamulaikum, waramatulahi wabarakatuh
You miss the point by a mile, Ridhuan Tee.
(Your) explanations are just a diatribe against those who take you to task for you insensitive comments.
It is not what you say but how you say it.
There seems to be nothing praiseworthy of your method nor intent. Are you hoping to win goodwill this way ?
A true Muslim will NEVER speak like this.
- To then hit out at the Chinese community in general as "kiasu" that too with a broad brush is patently unfair.
You then go on to paint DAP specifically and the Chinese generally as decadent and hedonistic. Did Islam or any other religion for that matter ever teach its followers to slander ?
- You also paint YB Ronnie Liu as a crusader out on a vendetta against Muslims, when Ronnie Liu stressed so many times that his intent was not to belittle Islam but he is duty bound to see that laws are observed, and not arbitrary.
- A distinction must be drawn between insulting Islam and insulting some Munafiqs who call themselves Muslim.
For example many "mat rempits" will declare that they are Muslims, so if I rebuke their actions, does that mean I am anti-Islam ?
- Using the Teoh family's misfortune to highlight the social ills you mentioned, is underhanded and opportunistic not to mention in bad taste.
Both Teoh Beng Hock and his fiancee are not Muslims. So why apply your standards of morality to them ? They had planned to register their marriage a day before Teoh died. Who are you to judge ?
- You obfuscate the issue by trying to draw parallels between religious and civil laws when the issue was your insensitivity more so against the backdrop of multiracial and multicultural sensitivities.
If you want to draw parallels there are areas which are not parallel, for example oral sex is permissible under Islam for legitimately married couples, however under the penal code it is technically an offence even for married couples. Here Islamic law makes far more sense than its civil counterpart. Will you write to the authorities to have this archaic civil legislation repealed ?
- Many scholars have opined that the ISA (Internal Security Act) is un-Islamic . Will you write to the government as a concerned Muslim to repeal it ?
Why don't you castigate proven adulterers of influential public stature who call themselves Muslim, Rahim Thambi Chik, Abu Hassan Omar, Abdul Razak Baginda... etc , I dare you if your principles are as relevant as you purport.
- Can you then blame those who accuse you of being an UMNO tool ? A person is judged by the consistency of their actions.
Will you accept a statement by a Hindu that you are an ignorant beef eater as just opinion ?Of course you will not, because you will not like someone who does not share your religious convictions rudely imposing their moral standards on you.
It is not about who is right or wrong but about understanding and compassion.
We hear from Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) that a prostitute went to Paradise because her compassion compelled her to give water to a dog dying of thirst, while another woman went to Hell because she allowed a cat to starve to death. Dr.Ridhuan Tee please seek forgiveness from Teoh's family, and to your fellow Muslims some of whom are angry with your statements too.
Even Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) asked for Islam to be propagated in ways that are most gracious, ie by winning over peoples hearts ,not by threats.
He always repelled evil with the good of forgiveness and kind behavior in his view, an antidote was better than poison. He believed and practiced the precept that love could sooth hatred, and aggression could be won over by forgiveness.
He fought fire not with fire but with water, unlike those who thump their chest as self proclaimed defenders of Islam do not even understand this simple concept.
“Keep to forgiveness (O Muhammad), and enjoin kindness, and turn away from the ignorant.” (Quran 7:199)The tragedy in Malaysia is some non-Muslims unfairly label Islam without a cursory understanding of its tenets .
The bigger tragedy however is those who proclaim to be Muslims but are ignorant of their own religion.
Knowing any religion by being able to quote all its hadith, verses ,quatrains and what not, is useless if one does not have basic human compassion and use it only to advance ones own agenda.
It just makes one a good parrot, not a good Ulama.
