WTF?!?! 0_0

I was just browsing through the local online papers this morning and I saw an article entitled, "National Fatwa Council - ruling on yoga exercise". So being the curious mind that I am, I explored and found that it was indeed what I pictured in my mind... An excercise routine developed to increase spiritual and physical wellbeing is against a religion?!?!?!

"GEORGE TOWN: The National Fatwa Council will soon come out with a ruling on yoga exercise.
The Islamic Development Department’s deputy director-general (operations) Othman Mustapha said the council’s chairman, Prof Datuk Dr Abdul Shukor Husin, would make the announcement.

Othman told reporters this after opening the two-day seminar on Islamic Jurisprudence and Eternal Islamic Thinking at Universiti Sains Malaysia here yesterday.
On Tuesday, lecturer Prof Zakaria Stapa of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Islamic Studies Centre advised Muslims who have taken up yoga to stop practising it as it could deviate from their belief. – Bernama"

And here I thought that we, of the Malaysian mindset and of racial harmony, were already well into the 21st Century. But heck, we're getting the same shite that's happening the the US vice-precidential election of Obama vs Palin. Whilst Obama is talking 21st century rationalism, his competition talks of Dark Age inanity.

True dat bro... It's sad to see a country we live in fall to such demeanor.

However, even with all these going on... Malaysians strive and persist to survive.

We should be coining and chanting, "Malay-SIANS Boleh!"

I really hope MCA'S' can wake up liow.... It seems that Ong has already been spoon fed puppies and will grow to become a dog?
I respect THE DEPUTY who has the courage to admit and re-climb up in less than 6 months.
We are living in 21st century, draconian law does not apply. Everybody is fuching somebody else. Do we really care do we care if our leader is a womanizer or a gay? We have have super moral leader but knows shit about running a country..... Or we can have those Capable Gay or Fuchers who can run the country and make sure the people is improving their living standards. Which would you choose?

Truer words were never spoken bro... You speak with much passion... Or you're just seriously pissed off!

But true... We should elect based on capability.

Their personal lives should stay just that... Personal. The "rakyat" do not need to know.
