Transkrip Nurul Izzah tentang Islam dan LGBT



Here, Malaysiakini produces the transcript of the event, during the period Nurul Izzah responded to questions from the floor.

Question 1: It’s heartening to know that you just cannot coerce someone into believing your beliefs, right? On any matter.

Now, I do want to ask a very controversial question, so what then the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community) here or the sexual minority here?

I’d like your views on that because there are people who feel that just by being able to love the same sex goes against their religion or beliefs, but we don’t believe that.

Our own beliefs are such that we are answerable to God, yes, but let us be answerable to God. Thanks.

Moderator: YB Nurul can you… all right, we’ll have one more, just one more question, then she’ll answer both then take leave. Yes.

Question 2: I’m very happy to hear YB Nurul speak about freedom of religion. Does she actually apply that to Malays as well in terms of freedom of religion? That is number one.

Number two, I think it is a fallacy to believe that Egypt now is (in) a better condition than it was before. Everybody knows that it is getting worse.

I have a friend in Egypt and she is really not happy about what is going on over there, so I do believe YB is trying to promote the idea of an Islamic state, like you know this which is completely not true.

But mainly my question is, when you speak of freedom of religion, are you actually applying to the Malays as well? Thanks.

Moderator: Well YB Nurul, that’s a good way to start the morning.

The audience laughs.

Moderator: You have two questions of great import at two ends of the spectrum. Could you try to answer that, please.

Nurul Izzah: Thank you, Cyrus, I love too.

The audience laughs.

Nurul Izzah: Okay, so the first question. In terms of the sexual rights of LGBT, Tariq Ramadan addressed this question when IRF organised his programme, I think about three months back and I think, of course, you’re not just talking about Islam.

There are limitations and you know, implemented in Christianity with regards to people of – you know – LGBT, but one thing is important is you should not victimise anyone.

You should not also implement and you know, ensure the laws of the land encroach into private… uh.. into public space.

I think that is the main underlying principle. But if you ask me whether, as a Muslim, I can accept, I think yes, you or whoever that, besides their particular sexual orientation.

Yes, in private you cannot enforce them certain regulation, etcetera. But as a Muslim, I also cannot accept and that is regulation of my faith and as well as my friends who are Catholic, etcetera.

I think here you want to make sure that they are not victimised, the current practise, whether how, through the Borders (bookstore) … sort of, err, how Jawi or Jakim at that time went to the Borders, some books etcetera, so the way it is practised does not respect and does not give any meaning for the sanctity of Islam, or any religion for that matter.

You must always use hikmah, so yes, I will say here, we have limitation, but certainly it should not be encroached into public space.

The second question with regards (to) what you think I’m trying to promote, I would correct that assumption. Yes, Egypt is undergoing a tumultuous process. It has not been resolved, there are many challenges they face.

I am not saying they have achieved a Utopian ideal view of a state and how it should be governed but I always take the development of the Muslim Brotherhood, in particular, from seen as a rather dogmatic Islamic movement come up with a political entity to meet the needs of the time and their relationship and collaboration with the Christian Coptic is something in particular that we have to observe and appreciate.

So if you say things are bad for Egypt, no. You, and we, must not be so judgmental and that is partly the society or the country that we have inherited that allows us to see things in black and white, whereas sometimes it is not as simple as that.

Sometimes in a stormy period, it is important for them to undergo and hopefully, because we wish for the best. We wish that they will have wisdom and finally manage the governance of the country itself.

But…

The bell rings.

Moderator: Okay, one more minute.

The audience laughs.

Nurul Izzah: Yes, umm, but the idea itself, I think, goes back. And when you ask me, there is no compulsion in religion, even Dr (Ahmad) Farouk (Musa) quoted that verse in the Quran.

How can you ask me or anyone, how can anyone really say, ‘Sorry, this only apply to non-Malays.’ It has to apply equally… apply equally.

The audience applauds.

Nurul Izzah: In the Quran, there is no specific terms for the Malays. This is how it should be done. So I am tied, of course, to the prevailing views but I would say that.

So what you want is of course in terms of quality. You believe so strongly in your faith, that even me, being schooled in Assunta with a huge cross in the hall and an active singing Catholic society will not deter you.

The bell rings and the moderator thanks the speaker.

The audience applauds as Nurul Izzah leaves the hall.

Perihal Elaun Keraian Kakitangan Kerajaan

ELAUN KERAIAN
BAGI pegawai-pegawai kerajaan gred 43 ke atas, mereka di peruntukkan dengan elaun keraian yang merupakan sebahagian daripada pendapatan mereka. Elaun minima RM400 sebulan di kecualikan daripada cukai pendapatan.

Imbuhan Tetap Keraian yang diberikan kepada pegawai dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan Tertinggi dan pegawai tertentu dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan dan Profesional merupakan elaun yang dibayar atas kadar tetap secara bulanan.

Tujuan pemberian Imbuhan Tetap Keraian adalah sebab jawatan dan tanggung jawab pegawai memerlukan mereka meraikan tetamu bagi mewujudkan suasana ramah mesra. -- FAQ SSM oleh JPA

Namun pada kebiasaannya, Imbuhan Tetap Keraian ini hanya digunakan untuk meraikan diri sendiri ataupun keluarga sendiri sahaja ataupun untuk membayar hutang-hutang peribadi sahaja.

Andai kata ada tetamu yang datang ke pejabat dan mereka di jamu, itu adalah dari perbelanjaan pejabat. Malahan ada pejabat yang membayar makan minum tetamu yang diraikan di hotel/restoran menggunak…

Mahathir Menangis Di London Kerana Kecewa Karenah Ahli Ahli Parti Bunga

Aidilfitri tahun ini agak berbeza bagi Mahathir. Jauh dia membawa diri ke London. Membawa hati dan perasaan yang kecewa terhadap ahli ahli parti bunga dan rakan rakan barunya dalam Pakatan Harapan. 
Merajuk sungguh. Mahathir merasakan inilah masa terbaik untuk dia meluah rasa hati dan mengubat kecewa bersama keluarganya. Mahathir takut sangat bila RCI Skandal Forex ditubuhkan. Mahathir merasakan masanya mungkin terhad untuk bersama keluarganya lagi. 
Ada yang nampak, Mahathir mengesat air matanya ketika solat hari raya Aidilfitri. Sugul dan termenung jauh memandang ke sejadah. Entah apa yang difikirkan. Namun mereka yang berada di saf belakang jelas nampak kekecewaan Mahathir di pagi raya.  https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1543654558988349&substory_index=0&id=697192853634528
Menurut sumber dalaman PPBM, Mahathir sebenarnya sudah mula rasa kecewa dengan ahli-ahli PPBM. Di peringkat atas, Muhyiddin masih berkeras mahu meletakkan orang orangnya di bahagian bahagian tertent…

APA SEBENARNYA TUN MAHATHIR MAHU?

TS Zeti dan Tun Daim telah mengakui ekonomi negara kekal kukuh dan rezab simpanan negara mempunyai rm436 billion, tertinggi dalam sejarah negara!
Terbaru Tun Mahathir telah membuat kenyataan yang mana 1MDB ...penubuhan siasatan diRaja ( RCI ) tidak perlu kerana tiada bukti kukuh untuk disabitkan kesalahan pada Najib.
Kini semuanya sudah nyata dan jelas..100% sebelum ini isu2 tersebut telah di politikkan kerana ada sesuatu yang tersembunyi hanya Najib dan Mahathir sahaja yang mengetahui.
Dulu Mahathir kata Najib dan kerajaan BN perlu ditumbangkan untuk menyelamatkan negara dari MUFLIS  dan juga tak mahu aset2 negara dijual ke negara luar. 
Malah dengan konsisten mengatakan Najib penyamun dan pencuri harta rakyat serta mengayakan keluarga mereka.
Hanya 5 hari sahaja Mahathir dapat kuasa..segalanya sudah terjawab hanya dengan kenyataan Zeti dan Daim sahaja.
Adakah Mahathir jujur dengan perjuangan agama bangsa dan negara?
Dalam sejarah satu permainan politik yang amat kotor...fitnah, pembohongan…
