The Return of the Body Snatchers!

Three days ago, the KL High Court ordered the body of a Chinese woman, Wong Sau Lan,  to be returned to her family for a Christian burial after Islamic authorities retracted their claim that she had converted to Islam. Wong, a practising Christian for her entire life had passed away on 30 Dec from illness. The Islamic Affairs Dept fanatics had snatched her body claiming she had converted to Islam based on some very spurious evidence. Here is the Malaysiakini report.

I felt so sorry for Wong’s family. Already in grief over her passing, the family had to put up with religious harrasment from the Islamic Affairs Dept fanatics. It’s Islamic zealotry in Malaysia rearing it’s ugly head!

I suspect the reason the claim was retracted was because of the looming general elections. The GoMen must not anger the non-Muslims at this crucial time after all – they might decide not to vote for BN.

Guess what? The Islamic Affairs Dept fanatics obviously didn’t get to memo! It happened again!

These morbid BODY SNATCHERS have made away with another corpse!

Malaysiakini reports that the police and the Islamic Affairs Dept. had seized the body of a Chinese man, Gan Eng Gor (74), who passed away on Sunday from the funeral parlour, after his eldest son (a Muslim convert) made a report claiming his father had converted to Islam in July last year. Gan was a practising Buddhist. One of Gan’s eight other children states that his father had been unable to talk after suffering a stroke two years ago – so how was he able to convert?

I really am angry on behalf of his family! What gives these state sponsored Islamic fanatics the right to steal bodies of non-Muslims from grieving families?

However, I suspect -some GoMen higher-ups are going to give the Body Snatchers a rap on the head. “Election Year Idiots!” You can pick up more non-Muslim corpses later. I suspect the MCA Dogs will also try to gain some brownie points by negotiating ‘heroicly’ for the body.

Bottom Line – 5 years ago, this would not have happened in Malaysia. It started with Moorthy’s body – we let the zealots get away it. Now it’s happening so easily to the rest of us – can you still keep quiet?

You want some change?

Deny the BN their 2/3 majority!

Remind them we are a multi-racial, multi-religious country.

Remind them we are a secular country – NOT an Islamic nation!
