“Storm in a headscarf”: Focus on real issues, don’t be like PAS; Guan Eng tells Boo!

Author:   |    Publish date:


FOCUS on real issues such as soaring prices of basic necessities instead of obsessing over the attire worn by female DAP leaders during visits to places of worship, DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng tells veteran leader Dr Boo Cheng Hau.

“For a DAP male leader to fuss over the clothing worn by Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh when visiting a mosque is no different from the extremist and primitive PAS leaders who want to control what women can or cannot wear.

“Not only it is gender insensitive but also show that we are just as intolerant and regressive as PAS,” he said, in a statement.

Earlier today, Malaysiakini reported that in a leaked Whatsapp communication, Johor DAP committee member Dr Boo Cheng Hau had criticised Yeoh for wearing a headscarf during a community event held at a mosque in her constituency.

“Maybe all of our women reps should wear the hijab not only in mosques but all over in public markets, churches, schools and so on.

“Best still, all should convert to Islam. Then we will be ensured to win Putrajaya in the next general election. What say you smart dudes?” the former state party chief was reported asking.

However, Yeoh defended herself by saying that wearing a headscarf does not mean it would change her race or religion.

“Our diversity and respect for each other is our greatest strength. I will not apologise for wearing a selendang in a mosque.

“I wore it with conviction that it is the right thing to do for my Muslim brothers and sisters. Live in moderation; this is the Malaysia I am committed to rebuild!” she said, in a Twitter post.

Celebrate multi-cultural M’sia

On that note, Lim said that showing respect to another religion in a place of worship cannot be construed as abandoning one’s own faith or attempting to appease other party.

The former finance added that leaders, in fact, should be supportive of any effort to promote mutual respect and tolerance among multi-cultural Malaysia.

“Would wearing a turban or head covering when visiting a Sikh temple receive similar criticism? Unfortunately, such unjustifiable criticism by one state leader has cast a bad light on the entire party,” he lamented.

Lim then urged his party leaders to focus on pressuring the Government to inject RM3 bil in a National Price Stabilisation Fund to contain soaring prices of food prices.

“Prices of eggs, chickens, bread, vegetables, cooking oil, ice cubes and even imported fertilisers, insecticides and labour have soared.

“And it has adversely affected the livelihood of the rakyat by slashing purchasing power of many households by more than half,” the Bagan MP remarked. – Dec 4, 2021

Dr Boo is a chauvinist despite he is a medical doctor mah!

Dap needs to move towards moderate side in order for long term survivability loh!

DickyMe If Dr. Boo is chauvinist, all Malay parties are same too for not promoting inclusivity.

Hannah did the wrong thing loh

She is naive and an dumb leader loh!

Dr Boo is visionary and that is why he is a medical doctor mah!

Even if Dap bend down and offer their rear ends, the Malays will accept it but will vote for Malays loh.

Tobby This is why majority malays have deep mistrust with DAP! Hannah Yeoh has been respectful of worship place like mosque! Just like how chinese ladies used to wear baju kurung every friday in the 90s! It's called, respectful!
If this old guards refuse to retire and make way for inclusive local chinese, i don't see any future of DAP in Malaysia!

DickyMe Non Malays too mistrust Malay parties because they openly discriminate.

DAP will never be accepted even if they convert and offer to share same bed.

It is wet dream by some fools.

Tobby That is why many local chinese youth who have gone to China to work prefer to stay back as they find China is so suitable for them! After many years, they no longer think Malaysia as their homeland! I don't blame them! Beside, China is now already No.1 superpower! Why bother with backward Malaysia!

Tobby You know, once upon a time Iran was modern moderate soceity just like Malaysia was back in the 90s! Then the fake holymen took over!
It only takes few fake holymen to control entire nation like Iran and Aghanistan!
Same with Malaysia! If those fake holymen takes control of Malaysia, total goner! Even if majority malays revoke against them!
Morally of the story, moderation is key to progress! Too much race or religion spoil everything!
05/12/2021 12:32 PM
stockraider Yes
