Is this for real or what?
The latest news is that those residing in FT are allowed to use the word "Allah". Now let me cite a weird situation here. I stay in Cheras, i.e. Selangor & attend mass at a church in the same locality. This means using the word "Allah" is out. Above all, the church has a Kadazan priest and about 40% of the congregation come from Sabah and Sarawak. The other point is, where my home & church are located, they are almost at the border with FT, i.e. Phoenix Plaza which is just a stone throw away. Once you pass this building, you are already in FT & if I fancy attending a mass that is allowed the use of the word "Allah", I go to a church that is located 3 kms away down the same road, still in Cheras. Do we have a kind of a "Berlin Wall" here or what? We already have 2 type of citizens [Bumi/Non Bumi], 2 types of Islam [Universal Islam/Malaysian Islam], 2 form of Christianity [East/Peninsular Malaysia] and now, another addition to the "2" factor - 2 Cherases. All courtesies of UMNO. All the hare-brain ideas so far have been back firing. So can we go back to the way it used to be? Pleeeeeeease will someone help us to get out of this ludicrous nightmare!
