Tuhan Allah and 1 Malaysia

This one is interesting. It's an idea of Marina Mahathir on Negara Ku. This really is a Catch 22 situation and cannot be 1Malaysia. She really made a point here, read on!

Some self-appointed defenders of Islam including the chief of "1 Malaysia" have insisted that Catholics should use "Tuhan" instead of "Allah" to address the Catholic or Christian God. But in the national anthem, "Tuhan" (not "Allah") bless the country (...Tuhan kurniakan...).

How now ?!!!. If Malay-Muslims are that easily confused as portrayed by some politicians, they must be thinking that Malaysia is blessed by the Catholic/Christian God, and the Muslim God "Allah" is perpetually on leave.

Perhaps, this confusion may cause the government to change the national anthem by replacing "Tuhan" with "Allah" But then again, non-muslims will not be allowed to sing the national anthem. Then it would be non-muslims' turn to be confused. If this issue goes to the courts, even the judges will get kepala pening.

So much for "1 Malaysia "!!!.
