Turkish religion officials rule out haram fatwa for protests


An Islamic body in Malaysia, the National Fatwa Committee, announced May 6 that it was not permissible for Muslims to participate in any rally intending to oust a government or cause disturbance in the country. However, a religious official in Turkey disagreed, saying it was a constitutional right for people to participate in protests.

“Rioting, causing disturbances and damaging public property are all forbidden by Islam. This also applies to any intention to topple an elected government by organizing such demonstrations,” the body’s Chairman Dr. Abdul Shukor Husin said.

“No one is exempt and no one should support any efforts that can cause harm, anxiety or unrest among Muslims to the point of the community becoming split. Especially if there is bloodshed,” he said.

Turkey example

Abdul Shukor also said that the committee viewed this issue seriously in light of “some Muslims resorting to rioting during street demonstrations, as happened in the federal capital on April 28,” the Malaysia star reported.Islam has “never called on its followers to resort to any action that could threaten people’s lives just to pursue a specific agenda,” the fatwa committee stated, adding that Muslims who participated in such demonstrations must repent.

More “useful discussion channels” could be implemented to practice democracy instead of protesting, Abdul Shukor said. An official from Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs Fatwa Board said the right to protest the government was given to people as a constitutional right in Turkey. However, the official also said that evil-minded and illegal actions were not permitted in Islam. “Any intention to incite society to malice is not lawful in Islam,” the official told the Daily News.

Note : In my opinion in all countries it should be  a constitutional right for people to participate in protests as it is in Turkia as long as those protests dont threaten other people´s lives.

Those who remain silent will never find freedom.

You can have a peek into what is really going on, if you care to watch this recent documentary named CATASTROIKA.

Notice the film is no bulshit; this is what is going on in Greece NOW !

 

NOT: Konuşmacılardan Dani Rodrik, yakın gelecekte Nobel Ekonomi odülünü alması beklenen çok üst düzey bir ekonomistttir. Türktür ve Boğaziçi Üniversitesi mezunudur. Şu sıralar Silivride tutuklu olan Paşalardan Çetin Doğan´ın damadıdır. Eşi de en az kendi ayarında bir ekonomisttir.

Here I was thinking the basis of Turkey was its secular constitution, meaning that some Malaysian committee has NOTHING to do with the choices Turkish people can legally make... We shouldn´t give attention to committees like this, and it´s a shame that the Turkish religious official had to comment on it, to prevent some looneys from following the Malaysian advice. By the way, I see no religious base on which the Malaysian comments can be founded.
