Breaking away from the federation can lead the country into chaos, and he is right.

Dr Mohd Asri is right. See what happens after Singapore splitted from Malaysia, we are now in such a terrible state e.g. earth quake, ship missing, plane missing, plane shot down, national airline is on the verge of closing shop, murder galore, corruption on the rise as never seen before, racial and religious bigotry on the rise, etc. Whose fault is it? UMNO, for telling Singapore to leave the federation and now we are paying the price for it.


PETALING JAYA: Any state wishing to break away from the federation can only lead the country into chaos,  Perlis mufti Dr Mohd Asri Zainal Abidin said in a Facebook posting.

“Demands by any quarters to secede any state from Malaysia will have serious repercussions on our federation. It will lead to Malaysia’s collapse and also ruin the unity Muslims and non-Muslims in general enjoy,” he said on his Facebook page.

He also said any talk of secession was a big threat to the country’s stability and would jeopardise the nation’s history as well.

“This is the biggest threat to the stability of Malaysia. History will be erased and a country respected for its peace and development will be buried for good. May Allah save us all.”

This cautionary message comes hot on the heels of an ominous posting by Tunku Idris Iskandar of a screenshot of the Johor state’s agreement to become a part of the Federation of Tanah Melayu and its right to secede if the conditions stated in the agreement were violated.

The conditions included Islam as the official religion of the state; the land in Johor as being the absolute right of the Johor government; and most importantly, that the power of the Johor government lay in the hands of the Sultan.

The issue of secession has been a delicate one in the country with the government having made it seditious to demand for it and with several individuals already having been charged in court for allegedly pushing for Sabah’s secession.

The picture posted on June 15 by Tunku Idris, was not accompanied by any title or personal comment so it was unclear as to whom it was directed to or the purpose of it.

It was however posted after remarks by Minister of Tourism and Culture Nazri Aziz that the Tunku Mahkota of Johor not meddle in politics unless he was prepared to be “whacked”.

Nazri made this comment when Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim commented on Najib Razak’s decision to skip the Nothing2Hide public dialogue on June 5 by saying the prime minister had everything to hide.
