Is Kelantan's Nik Aziz A Wise Young Man?

They say that Pas's long-time Kelantan Mentri Besar, Nik Abdul Aziz, 81, is a wise young man.

But sometimes the things he tends to say make you wonder if he is not a nyanyuk (senile) old man instead.

For example, in his 2008 speech in reference to a complain that the Pas campaign to promote the covering up of the aurat (part of the body that according to Islamic belief should not be exposed) was a waste of money, Nik Aziz was quoted to have said

Dah dia buka aurat, dirogol, padanlah muka (she did not cover her aurat, and got raped. Serves her right for being raped) She is selling cheap...her calf, her face, her thigh...rape lah

He was also said to have said that
The eyes are inter-connected with sexual organs. Covering aurat automatically reduces adultery, reduces rape, reduces HIV, reduces AIDS, reduces incidents of marriage falling apart

Wow, if true, that was one hell of a speech!

Blaming the uncovered body, the women and anything else but the men, the rapists and all in the name and justification of religion.

Now if covering the aurat solves all these problems, maybe the divine should have created women differently. It is such a sad thing, isn't it, that there had been some divine blunder?

I want to remind the venerable young man that the eyes are also inter-connected to the soul, AND TO THE MOUTH..

Watch what the mouth utters. Better still, cover up the mouth.

Some of the things Nik Aziz has a tendency to say, turn you not only away from him but also from the religion he represents.

But, don't get me wrong. I am all for Pakatan, which includes Pas as a coalition partner.

But we can't give bullets to pro-Umno bloggers to take Pakatan to task and to make it less than a desirable alternative to the ruling Barsian coalition.

We can't have potential occupants of Putrajaya talking like the Taliban.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
