PAS Youth wants the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to uphold its decision to bar Muslims from working in places that sell liquor although there is pressure from DAP leaders to overturn the ruling. – The Star 16 Jan – read more click here
I would like to suggest that they focus on banning something that affects more Muslims. In fact millions of Muslims – football.
Traditional Islam suggests that men must not show skin (aurat) from the navel to the ankle.
As such, all football games are haram from traditional Muslim point of view. It is like Muslim women who are all covered up with tudung but are wearing tight skirts :)
Pas youth should express disapproval to their spiritual leader Tok Guru Nik Aziz for watching the final game between Kelantan and Negeri Sembilan (Malaysia Cup) and later jubilantly celebrated when they won. In fact by their standards the Tok Guru should announce that it was a KEMENANGAN YANG HARAM.
Why it is only women that are coerced, pressured and even forced to cover their aurat? Is it not hypocritical? Why all the billboards that have women showing skin are darkened with black ink? If you want to celebrate football, then let them women wear skirts too :)
Note : I do not agree with the banning of alcohol as it is and the intrusion of personal choice in the name of religion .
