Who’s in charge around here? – yoga fatwa

Many Malaysians have been addicted to an Edict recently (excuse the punt)…

Yes, ever since the Fatwa council issue a ban on Yoga for Muslims.. there have been fireworks in the media, on the blogs & Malaysiakini, The Malaysian Insider etc… some comments have been a little silly honestly, many at borderline racial tensions….. but mostly showed how passionate Malaysians still are about issues around Anak Bangsa Malaysia, freedom & rights. Even RPK got into the fray with an excellent article basically saying “who gives a toss!?!?!”

However… the chronicle of events in the media got delCapo tsinking another issue – WHO”S IN CHARGE AROUND HERE???

  • Fatwa council?? They issued the ban, didn’t they??
  • Jakim?? They jumped  on to “order” each state council to make a stand, didn’t they??
  • Samy Vellu?? well not quite a force at all…. he just appears out of the woods & make a few opportunist statements nowadays.. MIC party elections coming lah…. free mileage mah..
  • The Rulers, in particular Selangor, Perak & Negri Sembilan made some firm stance….. done deal right? Head of state Religious affairs…The King &  Council of Rulers are head of religion for Malaysia… so end of story, no??…
  • NO… AABzzz stepped in… dunno if fully briefed or not… & landed a photo finish for himself by declaring “I wish to state that a physical regime with no elements of worship can continue, meaning, it is not banned. I believe that Muslims are not easily swayed into polytheism”… ok… very nice to hear.. errrr… but doesn’t his statement contrdicts the Rulers’ statements??…so PM has the final say now, not the Tuanku’s??? I

Chucking the non factor (Samy) aside… Fatwa Council vs Jakim vs The Rulers vs the PM…. 4 different sets of instructions….which one to follow??

A damn stretched position for the enforcers, no?

A damn upside down rule to follow for the sisters & brothers who wanna do yoga just for the simple reason, like the rest of the yoga world – health & fitness… no??

    Please stop making an issue out of this, it will only create more ill-feelings amongst Malaysians. PM has clarified, it’s a non-issue. The end.
