Oh how I wish I am part of the elite stock…

In Malaysia, there are things you cannot do because your religion forbids it, but if you are among the priviledged ones, you can do what ever you like. I have no business what people do with their religion, how they go about practising (or not) their holy rituals, I actually feel like an ass writing this post and being such a kay-poo-chee (busybody) minding other people business. But, I am an ass, so what should I care?
It disgusts me when some people can do anything they like because of their status, and get away with it. Then we have religious fatwas being issued out every now and then on things like banning yoga, girls’ dressing in male’s clothes etc. Our leaders are bunch of hypocrites, preaching Islamic values and never fail to make it loud and clear (for show lah!) they are the heroes in championing Islam and Malay supremacy.
You would hear things like ‘this is not Islamic, that is inappropriate and not in line with Malay cultural values’ from these hypocrites and they are fast to play the blame card on anything they can think of. It can be Jewish hidden agendas to corrupt their highly moral values in order to rule the world, subversive and evil Western hedonistic lifestyles, or in their own words ‘Anasir-anasir jahat Barat yang cuba menguasai kita dalam bentuk penjajahan alaf baru’.
That is why you have things like Islam Hadhari, Islam Madani, and religious moral police running amok, pretending to uphold the sanctity and holiness of the religion. I have no problem with that, but I have problem when only certain people need to be ‘morally’ corrected or whipped to follow the right, sacred path when some priviledged ones get special treatments. Yes, double standard and hypocrisy irks me.
These are some photos from an event held at a boutique owned by a certain very powerful numero uno politician’s son in law, a certain famous Sarawak politician’s son-in-law and another Muslim convert who is also the son of another powerful bigwig. These people are Muslims. Apparently, they enjoy watching sexy dancers gyrating on a pole and drinking alcohol. How good if I am part of the elite grouping, heh?
