Do You Want PAS or UMNO to be Your Supreme High Overlords?


DISCLAIMER: The following post does not in any way intend to offend members of any religion or belief. It merely points out legitimate worries on the minds of the electorate.

PAS releases campaign billboards to point out the superior moral fibre of PAS over UMNO. Somehow I don’t think it will have quite the intended effect on potential non-Muslims supporters…

From Malaysian Choice via Susan Loone‘s feature comes the following 44 differences between PAS and UMNO:

See the rest of the images at Malaysian Choice.

To a non-Muslim, the selected choices boil down to these:

1. Do you want Ketuanan Islam, or Ketuanan Melayu?

2. Do you want sharia and hudud law, or a crony judiciary and police force?

3. Do you want Islamic religious leaders, or half-wit leaders?

7. Do you want to obey the Quran, or the Constitution with its ingrained ‘social contract’?

14. Do you want your rights as non-Muslims to be respected (insofar as a dhimmi has second-class rights), or to have the same kinds of first-class rights as Muslims given to you? (Bang, Ow! Shot own foot!)

21. Do you want the crucial issues decided by Quranic and Hadithic scholarship, or Western-style logic and reasoning? (Fire two, Bang Ow!)

22. Do you want politics looking towards No-Non-Islam-Religions-Allowed-To-Step-Foot-Here Mecca and Non-Islam-Religions-Cannot-Protelyse-Or-Be-Visibly-Non-Islamic-btw-Death-to-Jews Iran, or Western-style equal rights? (Third time’s a charm, Bang Ow!)

33. Do you want to vote for the party that is 100% comprised of followers of Islam, or do you support the party of kafirs (i.e. infidels, unbelievers, rejecters of the truth, ingrates) – especially in Sabah ? (Bang Ow! Only one more toe left on this side!)

38. Do you want to be separated from your wife, mother and daughters in public, or do you actually want to be a family? (Bang Ow! Okay, that foot’s done – and just in time, only one more bullet in the six-shooter.)

39. Do you want Islam to be the true top priority, or do you want Islam merely to be the tool that is used to gain power to control you?

42. Do you want your leaders shouting “Allah is great! Live Islam!”, or “Independence! Live UMNO! Live Malays!”?

44. Do you want to champion Islam, or champion Malaysia? (Let’s make the last one count boys! Ready, aim… Bang! *self pwnage complete*)

I have trouble even deciphering some of the heavily Islamic-origin words, which surely cannot help ease the fears of suspicious, paranoid, distrustful, phobic skeptics like myself.

If, as some say, choosing between Anwar or Najib basically comes down to whether you like vipers or cobras more… Well, you guys can comment some other suitable metaphor.

This scared little non-Malay, non-Muslim mouse is out of squeaks. (Is there even a constitutional difference under Article 160?)

Honestly, can’t we just have a political party that gives us full citizen rights and doesn’t try and crowd out our personal beliefs and culture?

    It’s is frightening…..but as a modern muslim state,it would not be bad as one in middle-east…we,non-muslims are minority…it is best we talk with those in power and express our concern’s…it’s no use going one on one confrontation with them.From day one,Pakatan Rayat is formed under lot of doubts…if PAS and umno join forces,I forsee a chain reaction…possibly lot of PKR defacting to the Ruling front…They must having high hope’s that anwar will be PM sooner..now if it is not happening,then it’s time for Plan B….There is lot of new faces with DAP too….there is no assurance they will be loyal to DAP for life….I forsee another tsunami coming…this time it is other way around

    UMNO-led is sliiiiiiiiiiiiiggghtly safer than PAS-led. UMNO will pretend to consult. PAS? Never. It’s a choice of the lesser of two evils.

  3. bow Says:

    Is that all for us to choose between two evil? if it is , then logic will dictate us to go for the lesser evil. I am wondering where is the third charismatic and pragmatic force in Malaysia ? Like Hindraf, PR coalition……

    They know not what they do, forgive them Lord ! Until and unless they are won over, one party will continues pursuing things of the heavenly whereas the other will plunder till kingdom come.

    So, we are caught between the cliff and the deep blue ocean. We can only pray for more righteous people to arise not religious people though and be their friends to show them that this is still earth and not yet heaven. We still need to live the life of a mortal being till kingdom come.

    Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are those who mourn,
    For they shall be comforted.
    Blessed are the meek,
    For they shall inherit the earth.
    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    For they shall be filled.
    Blessed are the merciful,
    For they shall obtain mercy.
    Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For they shall see God.
    Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called the sons of God.
    Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ( Matt 5 : 3-10 )

    I am a baptised Christian turned atheist. If I have to choose UMNO or PAS and have no other choice, I’d give PAS a chance. I’m sure their religious faith will make them more humane and just unlike the “materialistic” UMNO/BN guys. My personal views only. I have known some PAS members from Kedah and they are really good people. I also know UMNO members who are very nice but we are talking about POWER and we have seen how UMNO abuses their power.
