Iklan Raya Krismas?

I'm sure you are all pissed about it. Well they took it down already okay. So please stop raising this issue. Point taken.



I myself thought that the PSA was 'cacat' but it does not deserve its share of controversy. People were so angry and lamented how the sanctity of Syawal is tainted by attempts to incept muslims' mind with subliminal images that will make muslims convert to christianity, buddhism and Illuminati (?)

A good friend of mind who is a Hindu indian reacted to this outrage with this comment:

"Trishaw that doesn't fly = ok to the world. Trishaw that flies = insulting to religion? Nice...."

Once upon a time our religious celebrations were celebrated together with PSAs that has more than one religion's element and no one made a big deal about it. Remember Deeparaya, Gong Xi Raya etc?

Insulting as it may for some muslims, it is not necessary to express your anger without considering the sensitivity of christians and buddhists. I find it disturbing that people are so wiled up about this PSA that they fail to consider the feelings of christian and buddhist Malaysians.

Do some people think when they comment with a malicious "TV3 menyesatkan umat dengan menggunakan elemen agama buatan manusia yang menyesatkan dalam iklan syawal yang suci."

What would christians and buddhists feels when their muslim counterpart claims that their religion is toxic to the minds and hearts of muslims?

We are getting defensive, protective and exclusive of our understanding of Islam and that sickens me, especially when it is spearheaded and followed by people who lacks knowledge in Islam.

Yes the PSA is sending the wrong subliminal messages but how we're reacting to it is also equally if not more wrong.

Thread carefully brothers of Islam, Islam, Islam, our beloved religion of Peace.

I have been hearing about this 'Illuminati' and 'Freemansons' for a while now. I am confused as to whether we should believe the stories are true or not?

Is it something to be worried about?

Itulah bila yang buat iklan ini bukan orang Melayu. Duit banyak sangat agaknya bagi keling atau cina atau mat salleh buat. Dia buat lah krismas ke atau hindu ke.

Bodoh punya TV3 management. Buta budaya melayu dan buta ugama.

Afiq as a secular film maker you hit it on the nail when you said "What would christians and buddhists feels when their muslim counterpart claims that their religion is toxic to the minds and hearts of muslims?"

Haha it is good to know that more and more young malays are secular as the basis of our Constitution is secular in that it recognise all religion as equal.

Equality of the gender is also upheld in our secular constitution thus you and your readers support for a chinese woman kafir to read the sermon to the PAS muslims congregation.

And she is not wearing a tudung to boot. Tudung are only for the Malay women who want to be arabised so Chinese women can wear kebaya and give sermons. yeah... way to go man. See how Nik Aziz approved when Lee saw him. You can almost see the sparkled in the old man's eyes.

First Elizabeth Wong who exposed her private parts went to see him and now this pretty chinese girl also came to meet him in private. Life could not be more fun to be the PAS leader. All the pretty amois are coming to get his blessing.

But Afiq you must not be naived about Catholic Christians. They think Islam is toxic in Europe and in America. In fact Bush and Blair the two Bs killed almost 1 million Islam people in the last Iraq war.


And the Pope of the Catholic Church himself issued the Papal Bull in 1400 which led to Alburqueque killing the Malays and the Melaka Sultan in 1411.

So the Christians indeed are a toxic religion responsible for slavery of the African people and the killing of the wounded Knees red Indians.

And the Hindus are not innocent either. They may pura-pura be innocent but in India you will not be able to eat or sembelih cows. Haha.. so learn about the evils of other religion before cursing your own people. In Thailand the Buddhist killed many Muslims too. In Phillipines the American killed Malays and convert them to Catholic Christianity and they are still fighting each other today.

So thank goodness you and your readers are mostly secular who keep the peace between the warring religions.
What do the Christians and Buddhist think? Just learn from Iraq and Thailand boy.

Stereotype much?

Sekular Afik has so much hatred in him he stoops to the level of the oppressors he used as examples.

How do people even define secularism? If you complete all you responsibilities as a muslim and think in a accordance to your religion, you are not a secular.

I am a fellow UIA-an too so I would like to clarify that the way Afiq explains his point is not at all secular. If finding peaceful solutions and creating a catalyst of interfaith understanding is secular then please just kill yourself before you infect other people with your definition of secularism.

I would like Afiq himself to comment of Afik Sekular's comment.

Stupid dumfuk. How can social tolerance (I did not even say religious tolerance)... yes even religious tolerance be equated to secularisme.

There is nothing secular in what Afiq said...

AlMaidah (5):68

Having said that, I'm wondering whether tv3 (whoever) went thru the story board before approving the commission... expensive lesson learnt... Anyway I think RM300k (unless I am mistaken then for which i stand corrected) can buy more than a few of Afiqs shorts kowt... :-)

Indeed Islam is the holiest religion of all besides it being untouchable by other religion. And due to that, the Muslims must also, always respect others' beliefs and not to make inconsiderate comments nonchalantly.

To my eyes, nothing is secular here. He's only reiterating on the unfinished critiques by the commentators.

And as a response to a comment made above, though other religions may regard Islam as toxic or whatnot,it still isn't a ticket for us to act the same. Or else Islam is of no difference.

That's rite.it isn't secular at all..this is the time we show the non-muslim how we are so tolerant,patient and Clever to handle the situation..we shouldn't think what happen now..we should think what happen next...

In poor taste perhaps, but personally unjustly overhyped.

You don't see young kids revert to Christianity in droves just because they watch Christmas cartoons, for instance, and the Freemason Illuminati conspiracy theories makes me crack up.

ButaBudaya,
Iklan itu kemungkinan dibuat oleh orang melayu sendiri la. jangan sebar khabar angin yang ta benar jika tidak tau.

Makan Kuat.

Mohd 'Azim Kamaruzzaman said...

Seriusly, i do agree with ur opinion!
Dlm islam menitik beratkan soal hormat xkira tua muda,bangsa & agama.. tapi, kenapa susah sgt bg sestgh pihak utk hormat mereka yg berlainan agama..

yes,nilai yg cuba disampaikn dlm iklan tu bagus..cuma caranyer salah..jd, xperlu utk mengkritik agama lain smata2 nk menegakkan agama sendiri sedangkan pendidikan agama org yg mengkritik tu sendiri belum tentu cukup sempurna..

Haha that is because you are living the arab lifestyles. Judging from your blogs with exposed women styles you are enjoying a blissful secular and pagan lifestyle.

So it is easy for you to judge other malays as over hype.

You are the living proof of secular Christian despite your tudung to cover your hair. That does not make you an Arab.

Haha,Superman girlfriend, hmm cant remember...her name..anyway you are so laughable.

Like most malays you are secular admit it girl. Look at you short miniskirt pic..haha..

A pic is worth a thousand worth.
Be proud of secularism.

IT is the basis of modern society. Advance society. US, UK etc.

REligious societies like Afghanistans, Pakistans Arabstans are backward.

MAlays are on t he way to seculrism and should be proud of it despite what some arabs want you to believe. The separation of state and church, the separation of prayers from parties that is so much fun.

Cantik bijak panas dan sexi. So sekular...hehe

WeAreAllSinners said...

Well said Afiq. I respect you for that.

Well, it seems like this issue is not 'hot' enough because I never heard of it, so thanks to Afiq for the heads up.

I am a christian (although not a religious one) student, studying in the local uni. If you ask me this is nothing to be fussed about. Ive seen how this country work, and I don't like what I see. But rest assured that I am the type who is very tolerant to others, and sensitive when it comes to religion; and Im very sure there are lots of young generation who thinks like me.

However its kinda hurt to see comments like "So the Christians indeed are a toxic religion responsible for slavery of the African people and the killing of the wounded Knees red Indians."

Cmon la people, grow up and open your eyes. Those are acts that are done by individual, people, person. It does not stated in the Bible that we can do stuff like that. In Iraq, you were right to blame the two B's for the killing, but would it be right to blame the religion? All religion teaches good things. We are humans, and human were not made to be perfect.

ok to be honest, we were reminded since a very young age to be devout to our religion. And of course we were taught to stay away from other religions. So the thought of other religion is inferior to our own has been transplanted deep into our roots. However the process of growing up have thought us to be tolerant and respect to what other people believe in.

You were offended that that the people is US and UK thinks that Islam is toxic, what do you think we Christians would feel if you say the same things?

Grow up people, PLEASE.....

Hypothecate, they on presentation to be taught that filing lawsuits is not the resolving to ode foetid piracy. As an predictability, it's to synopsis something play than piracy. Like placidity of use. It's morally a gaffe easier to utter iTunes than to search the Internet with jeopardy of malware and then crappy greatness, but if people are expected to at blemish loads and hike up seeing that ages, it's not salubrious to work. They anyway pledge a lop together in the bad people originate software and Cobweb sites that plan it ridiculously impotent to infringer, and up the quality. If that happens, then there particularize be no stopping piracy. But they're too chary and perturbed of losing. Risks suffer with to be fortified!
