Update, 16/11: Malaysia's non-Muslims have hailed the new Selangor MB for returningthe seized "Allah" bibles, dubbing Azmin "a true Malaysian leader".
It's important to note that it's still illegal to own or distribute a Bible that contains the word "Allah". The Bibles were returned with the understanding that they won't remain in Selangor (Returned Bibles not to be distributed in Selangor, says MAIS).
I was just thinking of his songs yesterday.
The posting that comes with this beautiful number, though, is grim and bloody and tragic: 453 (Great Britain) vs 21,000 (Afghanistan). It's more like the world's against the Afghan Muslims.
Here in Malaysia we happily continue to "kill" one another over dogs and pondans and GST and the cash handouts the Government's giving to the poor. We take peace for granted and we aren't thankful for our blessings, like the fact that we continue to enjoy full employment, essentials and medical services are still cheap, and our economy is better than fine.
I'm happy that they returned the Bibles that they seized over a year ago (did they erase the word "Allah" from those holy books before returning them?}. Good for Azmin Ali, the new Selangor Menteri Besar, and long live the Sultan of Selangor who was instrumental in getting the Bibles returned. Just please don't do it again lah.
