The most dangerous infliction on Islam in M’sia is corruption – Patriot
[Image: 22032021_-_KUL_-_The_media_gathered_in_f...ters_1.jpg]

PATRIOT refers to the news report where our minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Idris Ahmad yesterday sent out a stern reminder to certain quarters to stop insulting Islam as such issues are very sensitive. 

We certainly cannot disagree with the minister, and so we register our support for his call and concern. He expressed concerns that provocations could lead to untoward incidents.

His warning: “I would like to remind those who insult Islam, especially those who reside in this country, to stop the insults,” is a timely warning against those who hurt the feelings of Muslims here.

In fact, our police force has been doing a very good job in maintaining peace and harmony through prompt and effective actions all these decades, and by ensuring that insults on Islam are quickly dealt with – negating any potential chaos in the country.

On that same account, Malaysians too know how to respect each other’s religions and the track record of non-Muslims towards Islam is praiseworthy. However, the biggest insult to Islam is corruption – especially when it is committed by Muslims here.

[Image: FOOD-AID-PUBLIC-B40-COVID19-041.jpg]

PETALING JAYA: An Islamic NGO has urged the government to prevent all the leakages and corruption affecting the nation’s coffers.
Pertubuhan Ikram Malaysia (Ikram) said issues such as the rising cost of living, food security and the need to increase the overnight policy rates (OPR), were indicative of weaknesses in the country’s economic system.

“The government must ensure that all forms of assistance and incentives for the rakyat reach the target groups and are not misappropriated. This can be done by increasing the efficiency of the delivery system.

“Putrajaya must also enhance its oversight of the country’s financial management to eradicate leakages and corruption,” Ikram economic prosperity cluster head Abdul Hamid said in a statement.
