There Is No Freedom Of Speech In Malaysia

untitled1This may be last post from me for a long while as I'm expecting to be deported to Malaysia for not taking the recent banning of Valentine's Day in that country with the seriousness such an official banning deserves. In fact my piece entitled "Don’t Be My Malaysian Valentine" could be seen by some as taking the piss even. I was hoping that I might have got away with it but then today I read the following on the FREE MALAYSIA TODAY website:

The Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said police have identified the person who denounced the Islamic Development Department’s (Jakim) Friday prayer sermon urging Muslims to avoid celebrating Valentine’s Day. Khalid said police would not hesitate to use its most hardest law to punish those who insulted Islamic teachings.

Last week, Jakim claimed that the celebration of love weakened the Muslim identity and threatened the future of Islam as a whole.

Honest, it was just a joke everybody. It was never my intention to be part of any threat to the future of Islam as a whole by glorifying the infidel western notion of love being a good thing.
