Siti Kassim…cakap cakap.
Do you believe in universal human rights? The problem with these religious NGOs or movements like ABIM, IKRAM etc, they pick and choose issues that are not against their beliefs. Ask them whether they agree on freedom of religion, freedom of expression eg like the trans people, the punishment dished out via the syariah courts etc… are their views the same as what we understand as human rights? I don’t think you understand the perspectives from where we are coming from. The day I hear ABIM and IKRAM declare publicly that they believe in freedom of or from religion, that the transwomen should not be persecuted, that all these intrusions into the lives of the Malays must stop, that no one should be forced to convert when one marries a Muslim and many more, I will have no hesitation in working with these people.
