Currently, there is this famous line going around:
Malaysia is a ban country
OUCH. Ugh, although I'm a Malaysian, I can't help but feeling the same way! Okay, maybe some of you would not understand what the heck I am talking about.
Last year, Avril Lavigne who came here for her 'Best Damn Thing' tour had protests across the country from various groups who said that 'she is too sexy'. Of course, she made a deal to wear something decent since it is a majority Muslim country but still, there some people finding fault and keep protesting. But thank God, she still came & rock out!
And the recent scandal, damn, Beyonce. She was supposed to be here tomorrow for as her part of her 'I Am...Sasha Fierce' world tour. But she 'postponed' her concert here(but everyone knew she won't come back here) as there was a source saying that Beyonce receive bad notices about Malaysia and has a scare of Muslim thing. But it was obvious because of the protests too that had been on since she made her announcement.
Okay, maybe some of you would reconsider all these concert protests thing(but I DON'T). What about this? Ban condoms. Yes, you heard me: BAN CONDOMS. Why ban condoms? I don't get it. By banning condoms, it's not like the cases of unwed mothers, teen pregnancies & babies being abandoned would reduce? In fact, it is surely going to rise.
Besides, some families use condoms as a control so they can plan out their families properly. Is that a bad thing? And prove to us that it stated in al - Quran or any religion that says that: Condoms are illegal in the religion's views. We can't just ban things just because we feel like we want to or just to make things look 'better'.
To add a little more chilies, here's another one: Ban Horror Movies. God, then they might as well ban cinemas nationally! They say that it is not good for the Muslims as they consist of elements that go against the teaching of Islam. To me, this is just an excuse. People still have a choice whether they want to watch what genre of movies - are we really that naive to need baning to guide us?
If they are so concern with the 'rights' of Islam, why don't just impose on a rule that needs all Muslims to cover up? Instead of banning condoms, banning horror movies - IT IS JUST ILLOGICAL.
Ohh, what's next? Banning on Coke? Banning on skirts? Banning from travelling to the Western countries?
I wouldn't care if they ban cigarettes since they are an obvious threats. But these going on banning are just ridiculous. What good do they bring if those stuff are banned? These just bring angers among us - WE ARE THE PEOPLE. To us, none of these are being threats to us.
So seriously, just stop about baning this and that. Why don't focus on more important things like reduce the cases of rape, kidnappings and help the low income families, instead of imposing bans that bring us nothing.
