THE MAJLIS, PO Box 3393, Port Elizabeth, 6056

NO.3    18 Rabiuth Thaani 1432 – 23 March 2011


Some faceless, spineless cowards belonging to the pro-MMB camp, are
anonymously discouraging Muslims from responding to the on-line ‘NO TO
MMB” petitions organized by Jamiatul Ulama KZN and Jamiatul Ulama
Gauteng. Perturbed at the thousands of Muslims objecting against MMB,
these  spineless cowards who fear to identify themselves, are claiming
that the  Minister of Justice pays no heed to a NO  objection.
According to the cowards, the bill is up for ‘comment’, hence
submitting a NO response is futile.

This contention is utterly baseless. The NO to MMB has considerable
and decisive meaning. The greater the number of  NO’s , the more will
the authorities be influenced to scrap the Kufr MMB. Contrary to what
the pro-MMB morons say, the word ‘NO’ per se is a COMMENT, and it is a
powerful comment.. The bill was published for comment by the public.
‘NO’ is a powerful and a decisive comment which the Ministry of
Justice may not ignore.  It is a comment which illustrates the
feeling and the view of the Muslim community. The bill was released
for public comment precisely for this objection, namely,  “ …. to
enable Parliament to inform itself of the views of the people.”
Regardless of the rationality or irrationality of the views, it is of
no concern to parliament  since the issue pertains to a discriminatory
bill aimed at a section of the population. Hence, of  decisive
importance is the feeling and the view of the community. Without the
acceptance of the community, a discriminatory law  cannot be enacted.

The thousands of  ‘NO’ comments are viable and convey to the
authorities the views and the feelings of the Muslim community.  It is
unconstitutional and unlawful for parliament to enact discriminatory
legislation which a community abhors and rejects. The thousands of
‘NO’ comments will convince the authorities that the bill if
legislated will be a discriminatory imposition on the basis of
religion, and this is unconstitutional.   The Constitution forbids
discrimination on the basis of  religion. A law of religious content
cannot constitutionally be imposed on a particular section of the
population to the exclusion of the rest of the populace when that
particular  section rejects that law.

It is unconstitutional for the state to impose on the Muslim
community a law of religious hue, which the community rejects
regardless how illogic the rejection may be. If the Muslim community
says ‘NO’ to a bill, it (the bill) can never be imposed on  Muslims to
the exclusion of other segments of the population. There is no need
for the masses in the community to explain why they abhor the Kufr
Bill. It suffices that Muslims inform the government of their feelings
and views regarding the Kufr Bill.

If the Muslim community, including the Ulama, abstain from
providing exhaustive comment as we are presently doing, and confine
themselves to only a ‘NO’, the government has no option but to take
note and scrap the bill. This is the constitutional obligation of the
government. Since the bill is meant exclusively for the Muslim
community, it is discriminatory in terms of the Constitution. It
therefore may not be imposed on the community without its request and
wholehearted consent.

MUSLIMS ARE URGED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ONLINE PETITIONS TO REJECT THE
KUFR MMB.  THE SO-CALLED ‘MUSLIM’ MARRIAGES BILL IS AN INSIDIOUS
ATTEMPT BY SINISTER CONSPIRATORS WITHIN THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY TO SEEK
FULFILMENT FOR THEIR PERNICIOUS OBJECTIVES. IT IS FOR THIS REASON THAT
THEY ARE RECKLESSLY MUTILATING THE SHARIAH – TO ACHIEVE THEIR PRIMARY
MONETARY OBJECTIVE. WE SHALL COMMENT MORE ON THIS SATANIC OBJECTIVE IN
A FUTURE ARTICLE, INSHA’ALLAH.
