‘DAP’s haram’ accuser ‘rewarded’ RM2m?

PETALING JAYA: A religious teacher who last week labelled DAP as haram (forbidden) to Muslims has apparently received a RM2 million cheque for his school from the government.

Abdullah Sa’amah, the founder of Pondok Geting (Pondok An Najmiah) in Tumpat, was photographed receiving a mock cheque for the amount from Umno supreme council member Mustapa Mohamed.

Mustapa, the International Trade and Industry Minister and Jeli MP, on Tuesday uploaded a photo of the handing-over ceremony on Facebook.

In the caption, Mustapa explained that he was “visiting pondok Hj Abdullah to hand over a contribution of RM2 million. Four months ago, Muhyidding Yassin visited and promised help”.

The cheque was from the Jawatankuasa Projek-projek Khas (JPPK), Jabatan Pembangunan Persekutuan Kelantan (Special Projects Committee, Kelantan Development Department), and the recepient was named as “Tetuan Pondok An Najmiah”.

The photo was picked up by pro-opposition blogs. Roketkini.com and keadilandaily.com asked if the RM2 million was a “reward” from BN-Umno.

They noted that the money was given just a week after the comments by Abdullah Sa’amah were published in Umno-owned Malay daily, Utusan Malaysia.

They also claimed Abdullah is often a ceramah speaker at Umno events.

On Mustapa’s Facebook page, some of the comments posted were: “Janji Ditepati” (Promises fulfilled), the Merdeka Day theme this year and BN’s most recent election campaign slogan.

One Muhammad Faris Mohamed Abidin wrote: “Wau bagi fatwa dapat 2juta eh.. best nye..” (wow, issue a fatwa receive two million eh… that’s so great) while a few others said that this was “rezeki from Allah” (sustenance from Allah]

Forbidden and sinful

On the Aug 7, Utusan front-paged a report where Abdullah was quoted as saying that it was “forbidden and sinful” for Muslims to support DAP as the party openly opposed an Islamic state and the implementation of hudud.

He also said that Muslims should not support any of DAP’s allies as it would help the predominantly Chinese party, which he alleged was filled with “kafir harbi”(belligerent infidels), gain more power.

The religious teacher had also told the Umno mouthpiece that it was acceptable to support the MCA and MIC as the two parties recognised Islam’s pre-eminence.

Meanwhile, Mustapa told FMT that the cheque had nothing to do with the Utusan report.

“It has nothing to do with [allegations of a reward]… the DPM was there four months ago. I was there to deliver that promise. That’s all I have to say,” he said.

    This is so blatant that it’s unbelievable.

    These people have no shame nor hesitation to insult the intelligence of the Malaysian public.

    From what I read, it seems like:
    What Moohiddin said is the PM made an agreement for the RM 2 mil 4 months ago for a “job” to be performed by the Pondok Geting and he’s is just there to deliver the payment.

    The timing and statements made are really so obvious and blatant that it is as if Malaysians are stoopid or wat …

    That religious teacher said”It was acceptable to support the MCA and MIC as the two parties recognised Islam’s pre-eminence.”
    What a load of C & B from that statement.
    This racist religious teacher may as well say Malaysians supporting PAS and DAP are devil’s supporters.

    A very big Raya ‘angpow’ for a ‘job’ well done. Thanks UMNO. Who wants to be next ‘religious scholar’ and ‘fatwa announcer’?

    Well, well, well!
    These scums are throwing away the taxpayers’ hard earned money like its confetti.
    That’s how they can turn all sorts of so-called “upright people” to their cause.
    This is another strike against the scums in the federal government.
    And it must be included in the charge sheet on the day of reckoning!

    A vivid illustration of “you tolong gua, gua tolong lu” in practice.

    Yes, BN is right. It is “janji ditepati”.
