Leadership is about removing uncertainties.
When episodes as bad and as unacceptable as the cow-head incident takes place be it against Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Sikhism, Baha’I or any spiritual traditions, it is important that well respected leaders and individuals from the ‘offensive party’ must make a clear stand in unison against it.
This is when we need to rise above politics.
As in the current case, a united stand in the form of a Joint Declaration or better still a joint press conference condemning the act from the following individuals/parties would be most useful in sending a clear message to the offenders.
1. Yang Di Pertuan Agong and all the Sultans
2. All the State Muftis
3. PM Najib
4. DPM Muhyidin
5. Uztaz Hadi
6. Tok Guru Nik Aziz
7. Saudara Anwar Ibrahim
And We made them leaders, guiding (men) by Our Command, and We sent them inspiration to do good deeds, to establish regular prayers, and to practice regular charity; and they constantly served Us (and Us only). (Quran 21:73)
