After Jumaat prayers at KLCC mosque, I joined a student demonstration and walked 3km to the Egypt embassy to support the delivery of a memorandum. The memorandum stressed on Egypt's responsibility as an Islamic state to open its border to allow occupation victims to run for safety and to allow medical help to be brought in into Palestine. FRU and policemen directed the march to ease congestion. Some of them even chanted along with us.
There was a lot of chanting and running. I know I'm supposed to be all fired up and shit, but the sight of heavily clad girls in jubahs running while shouting Ya Salam, Ya Rabbi was so damn funny. Just imagine a hundred or so ustazah lookalikes running amok in the heart of Kuala Lumpur! Oh God, I couldn't stop laughing when they scurried like sheeps chanting "Hidup Islam, Hidup Palestin, Hancur Israel, Hancur Zionist."
There were two type of people who marched along with the memorandum bearer. The majority were university students who joined Islamic groups affiliated with PAS and a few of them were genuinely angry middle-eastern students.
No, I didn't feel like a fish out of water at all even though a number of students who joined the demonstration gladly pointed that out. One guy even had the guts to tell it to me in the face:
"Ada jugak orang Islam macam ko kat sini?"
"Hah? Macam apa?"
"Orang yang nama je Islam."
I ignored him of course. I was more concerned about dying Palestinians to entertain judgemental pricks. One sister even shouted at me to get out of her way with a courtesy "Oi Cina Babi, tepi!"
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Sabar Afiq sabar....
"Saya orang Islam lah sister. Nama saya Afiq Deen."
"Ah! Ada ke orang Islam muka macam kamu!!?"
"Kalau dekat China yang ada 22 juta orang Islam, muka akak lagi pelik."
"Nak masuk gambar? Saya letak dalam blog.
So that's the Akak Babi, the one is shades.
Of all the weird things that happened today (ustazahs running, persian guy sitting on his moving car with no one driving), this one takes the cake:
