Be like a kite that goes up against the wind of adversity, we can do just better, by being together and defeat the evil of enmity.
It is a bitter period for Malaysians, especially Muslims. Amidst the flood in the west-coast, unending financial instituition dispute, economical struggle, many are still to let their attention caught by the relatively less urgent issue like what we have been encountering this week. The fight between Dr Maza and Dr Zamihan is undeniably sensational, groundbreaking and exciting, for some, this is the cardinal pivot of which our future will be very much determined by it. It’s the fight to declare the truth and to let the lies to decay.
I, personally don’t give a damn to this kind of fight. Whoever won the debate won’t significantly change the paradigm of each realm, less they come to the bottommost of their heart, and reconcile.
Some more, it’s just a zero-sum game, or so a Malay proverb goes “Menang jadi arang, kalah jadi abu” Will the result be used as a guideline to combat extremism? Maybe yes, but mostly no, rather, a specific body like Jakim or Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan would do the job.
However, let’s stop playing the innocent, or the nerd who always wants to play safe and choose no side. Just roll the ball, and roll it right, I would say, it is very positive to have them talk to each other harmoniously, in a fair medium and controlled setting. I would ask for one and one only, just make it fast, stop the strife, and get back to the society where both of you are needed the most.

Nevertheless, I was jolted by my fb timeline today, just couldn’t believe my eyes- a sum of Muslims scholars and corporates were sitting around the table discussing the issue of the mass, what a meetup!!!
This is what we need the most from the learned ones, for them to put aside their incongruence and focus on what they have in common. We in other field like medical are encountering bizzare and delusional perception on vaccination and many others medical intervention. While the clash of opinion of yours won’t cost any lives, the dispute that we are facing in medical field are threatening the public health status as a whole. How to combat this? The answer is by extensive and holistic approach of education, by this, it means, we need people from other specialty like you guys- the asatizah to work hand-in-hand with us.
In the humble nutshell, it’s either we go big or we go die.
