The lawyer and opposition lawmaker also claimed that the Christian community in the two Borneo states to be disappointed with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak over his silence on the ongoing public controversy over calls for non-Muslims to refrain from eating in front of Muslims and the arbitrary enforcement of dress codes at public institutions in peninsular Malaysia.
“We in Sarawak and Sabah are sorely disappointed with him for his silence on these matters,” he said when commenting on some women who were barred from entering government buildings in the peninsula because they were wearing  “short skirts”.
“Having visited Sarawak so regularly in the previous few months and basking in the support of Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem, he should bear in mind that we do not take kindly to having our constitutional freedoms and human rights threatened by the champions of Islamisation,”  the Ba'kelalan assemblyman said, referring to Najib.
Baru said the Christians from the two Borneo states are still waiting for Najib to act like a prime minister for all Malaysians instead of a beleaguered party chief struggling for survival.
“His track record in defending our rights such as in the ‘Allah’ and Bible issue has been dismal, and we fear that racial and religious tensions will continue to escalate, if he cannot find the testicular fortitude to lead this country out of this festering mess that is a consequence of the Barisan Nasional government,” he said.
Baru took exception to remarks by the Mufti of Perak Tan Sri Dr  Harussani  Zakaria that non-Muslims should dress more “appropriately” in public places out of respect for Muslims who would sin upon seeing people, including non-Muslims, who do not cover their “aurat”.
He said telling non-Muslims to address “appropriately” in public places is among the signs of the attempts to Islamise the secular country.
“We live in a multi-religious country where Christians, Buddhists and Hindus also fast as a part of our religious practices but there is no demand that people of other faiths respect us by not eating in our presence.
“Therefore, the excuse of ‘not-respecting’ one’s religion cannot and should not be used to justify the on-going arbitrary imposing of dress codes and attempts to regulate the eating habits of non-Muslims in this country,” he said.
The champions of Islamisation should migrate to the IS caliphate and stay there since that is the only place on earth that practices the 'Real' Sharia law that not even Saudi Arabia fully comply.
Why pick on dress code and other small finite things when there is widespread corruption, human rights abuses (committed by police, and other enforcement agencies, etc), abuses of power by govt., etc.
They should go after these greater SINS first then go after small non-sinful stuff.
GROSS STUPIDITY!
