Brouhaha over Sinful Chocolates

Former Perlis mufti Dr Asri Zainul Abidin (left) expressed disappointment with Malay-Muslims for their overreaction towards Cadbury Malaysia’s ‘haram’ chocolates.
In his Facebook page on May 28, 2014, he conveyed his unhappiness that his fellow Muslims were concerned over the consumption of pork, but kept silent over bigger crimes such as corruption.
He said: "Unfortunately, we are not making enough noise over things that are clearly ‘haram’.”
He added that it was not a sin when followers of Islam accidentally consumed pork, and that Allah would not punish anyone if it was done unknowingly.
Besides, Islam does not require reactions which result in difficulty.
If only there are more Muslims such as Dr Asri Zainul Abidin.
Caterham owner Tony Fernandes denied yesterday that his struggling Formula One team is up for sale, but said it was seeking new investment. What if he cannot get new investment?
On Tuesday, I was at Kelab Sukan IJM Cobra in Petaling Jaya. This was the Taman Indrahana Toastmasters meeting and here I delivered my CC speech #5 titled “Love Your Body” – Round 3 of Project 15. I have reached the halfway mark. Lim Thian Seng evaluated me.
