  • When it comes to islam, all other matters become less relevant and important. Any country allowing a PR status guy to preach controversial teaching and upset the sensitivity of the locals are purely STUPID governance. The level of abuse of Islam for political gains has gone wild and unstoppable. Its bcos educated and well to do muslims dare not speak up the truth that allow the selfish politicians and preachers to continue capitalise and exploited islam as they wish. After all, no muslim will or dare to speak up, whatever spoken is taken as truth. So I blame the educated and knowledgeable muslims for staying quiet. We non muslims are not in a position to question!!! If we can question, we would have done many times as some if the preaching are purely nonpigic and does not make common sense.
