Discouraged From Valentine's day celebration
main Islamic opposition party has called on Malaysians not
to celebrate the Valentine's Day, warning that the event
leads to immoral activities, the Malaysia Star reported on
Tuesday, February 7.
“Every year we join forces with various Muslim
non-governmental organizations to create awareness that
celebrating Valentine's Day is against the Islamic Shari`ah,”
Nik Abduh Nik Aziz, deputy of the Parti Islam se-Malaysia
“We do not want the celebration to become a trend among
Muslims,” he said, adding that scholars worldwide forbid
Muslims from celebrating the day.
Aziz called on the government to place anti-Valentine Day's
advertisements on television to discourage Muslims from
celebrating the event.
“The best way to disseminate the message is through
television,” he said.
“And the Government can easily do that as it controls the

Islamic officials in Malaysia issued a fatwa in 2005 that
the day is associated with “elements of Christianity”.
Last year, religious authorities arrested more than 100
Muslim couples over the Valentine's Day celebrations.
Islam does recognize happy occasions that bring people
closer to one another, and add spice to their lives.
However, Islam goes against blindly imitating the West
regarding a special occasion such as Valentine’s Day.
Hence, commemorating the Valentine’s Day is an innovation or
bid`ah (innovation) that has no religious backing.
But the PAS's call drew flaks from Malaysian political

“Anwar should take action if he wants to show Pakatan Rakyat
embraces moderation,” he said, adding that the coalition
should take action against PAS Youth.
“It is not an issue with Muslims, but PAS Youth never fails
to make an issue out of it,” he said.
However, PAS Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan at-Tantawi
reiterated thta the party would never interfere or punish
those celebrating the occasion.
“We are also not trying to assume the role of moral police.
We are not enforcers,” Nasrudin said.
“But, we want to help save the youngsters from falling into
the Valentine's Day trap that promotes immoral activities,”
With about a million members, PAS is the largest opposition
party in Malaysia.
The party enjoys strong support from the northern rural and
conservative states such as Kelantan and Terengganu.
Affairs Committee warns of far-right terror threat
MPs have warned the government not to neglect
the threat from extreme far-right terrorism.
In a report on radicalisation, the Home Affairs
Committee said it had heard "persuasive
evidence" about the potential danger.
The MPs also say internet service providers
should make greater efforts to remove violent
The committee interviewed jailed radical Muslim
preacher Abu Hamza as part of its research.
Its report examines the roots of radicalisation
and the government's Prevent strategy designed
to counter it.
The MPs said violent Islamist radicalisation
appeared to be declining but there may be
increasing support for non-violent extremist
views fuelled by "feelings of alienation".
"A view was expressed by some of those giving
evidence to us… that the revised Prevent
strategy only pays lip service to the threat
from extreme far-right terrorism," the report
"We accept that Prevent resources should be
allocated proportionately to the terrorist
threat. However, we received persuasive evidence
about the potential threat from extreme
The committee cited the growth of far-right
groups with links to similar organisations in
"The ease of travel and communications between
countries in Europe and the growth of far-right
organisations… suggest that the current lack of
firm evidence should not be a reason for
neglecting this area of risk," the MPs say.
Sophy Ridge, political correspondent at
Sky News reflects on the media coverage of the report
published yesterday by the Home Affairs select committee
on the ‘Roots of Violent Radicalisation’
“Reading the newspaper headlines, you
would be forgiven for thinking the latest report into
extremism by the Home Affairs Select Committee of MPs
was yet another stark warning of the growing threat of
“"Al-Qaeda bid for Brit girl bombers"
(The Sun), "Internet fuels radical Islam" (The
Independent), "MPs visit Abu Hamza at Belmarsh" (the
Daily Mail), "Radical Muslims target young inmates in
prison" (The Daily Telegraph), "Hamza in Terror War Rap"
(the Daily Star).
“But just look at the conclusion of the report, entitled
the Roots of Violent Radicalisation - "We suspect that
violent radicalisation is declining within the Muslim
“The MPs conclude: "There also appears to
be a growth in more extreme and violent forms of
far-right ideology. Indeed it is clear that individuals
from many different backgrounds are vulnerable, with no
typical profile or pathway to radicalisation."
“The case that immediately springs to mind is that
of Anders Breivik, who committed the appalling shootings
in Norway last year.
“He arguably seems to fit exactly the profile of the
"lone wolf" using the internet to get "far-right ideas"
that the committee specifically warns about.
“At the time David Cameron ordered a review into
far-right groups, acknowledging that insufficient
attention had been paid to them in the past.
“This is not to say, of course, that violent Islamist
extremism is no longer a concern and should be forgotten
“But perhaps the report should act as a warning against
lazy assumptions about terrorism and extremism."

acts. However, we remain concerned that
the greater danger to America's civic

Presidential Press Release
5 February 2012
SOUTH AFRICA: The Prophet of Islam (Peace be
upon him) was born on the Islamic date of the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal
which in the Islamic calendar is today.
Within a period of twenty three years he changed the Arabian
society and brought about reforms that have had a profound
impact on humanity as a whole. His traditions have a
universal value and if correctly implemented can greatly
reduce the suffering of many people around the world.
One such example is a narration in which he says: "None of
you is a genuine believer until he loves for his brother
what he loves for himself." If, within the context of our
society, this narration can be implemented and acted upon,
we can undoubtedly establish a more caring society.
Today, the almost two billion followers of this great
Prophet (Peace be upon him), including those who live in
South Africa will be commemorating this day, and I take this
opportunity to wish them all well and may the day be a

a ban on women drivers in Saudi Arabia would result in ‘no

relaxing the ban would also see more Saudis - both men and
women - turn to homosexuality and pornography.

It was delivered to all 150 members of the Shura Council,

The report warns that
allowing women to drive would ‘provoke a surge in
prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce’.
Within ten years of the ban
being lifted, the report’s authors claim, there would be ‘no
more virgins’ in the Islamic kingdom.
And it pointed out ‘moral
decline’ could already be seen in other Muslim countries
where women are allowed to drive.

A World Without Islam
Graham E. Fuller
if Islam never existed?
To some, it's a comforting thought: no clash
of civilizations, no holy wars, no terrorists.
But what if that weren't the case at all?
In A WORLD WITHOUT ISLAM, Graham E. Fuller
guides us along an illuminating journey through history,
geopolitics, and religion to investigate whether or not
Islam is indeed the cause of some of today's most emotional
and important international crises.
Fuller takes us from the birth of Islam to
the fall of Rome to the rise and collapse of the Ottoman
He examines and analyzes the roots of
terrorism, the conflict in Israel, and the role of Islam in
supporting and energizing the anti-imperial struggle.
Provocatively, he finds that contrary to the
claims of many politicians, thinkers, theologians, and
soldiers, a world without Islam might not look vastly
different from what we know today.
Filled with fascinating details and
counterintuitive conclusions, A WORLD WITHOUT ISLAM is
certain to inspire debate and reshape the way we think about
Islam's relationship with the West.

Flightstar Fozi's Travel Tips
Q: Dear Flightstar Fozi, we are travelling to Borneo
in a few months and will be spending a few weeks in the
jungle. We know we will need to get immunisations but I
understand that even taking those horrible Malaria tablets
you can still get malaria, what else can we do?
A: I have taken those horrible Malaria tablets
so I really feel for you.
However, it is best to speak to your GP or the travel doctor
specialist to get all relevant medical advice.
Travelling to Borneo will be such a wonderful experience,
but you really need to be up to date on what medications and
immunisations you will need to get before you travel.
Make sure you have a good medical kit with you which should
include a very strong insect repellent.
It is better to be overprotective in the jungle because even
though it will be an amazing place there are many things
that can make your trip uncomfortable.
