ON ALVIN and VIVIAN: A PLEA

ALVIVI REPRISE ...

the two young people who have erred should be left alone by society and be forgiven and allow time for them to seek solace and answers within amidst the inner world of joys and sorrows they have created for themsleves ...

let the law take over and have mercy on them as well ... to err is human, to forgive divine as the cliche' goes .. i see them as young people learning to juggle between the earth, the wind, the fire, the water within themselves ... this goes as well to those who have speak ill of others of different religious faith as well ...

let us see threats on the two subsiding and mass anger eroding ... acts done by those who are angry naturally ...it will be an "islamic act" to do ... let us hope alvin and vivian learn to see the best way to love others and to see arrogance eroding and love and respect for others reigning supreme ... it will be a most "christian thing to do" ...

we can also be reminded by the beautiful saying "let those who have not sinned cast the first stone" ... -- ar

actually i don't see what wrong alvin had done to deserve such harsh treatment, and even charged in court.

basically they send greetings to break fast. of course with bak ku teh. which is the reason the muslim said insulted islam. even though there is a halal logo, which literally means it can be consume by muslim.

they claimed that bak ku teh is pork soup. i have not heard of people selling pork soup. wanton soup yes,where the pastry are filled with pork, chicken or whatever meat. wanton mee is my favorite and i would always patronise the muslim stalls and never a moment feel insulted when they displayed wanton soup on their menu.

for the non-muslim, bak ku teh is a dish where the meat used is usually
the ribs of pork cooked with herbs, spices and eaten with rice.

wanton soup or bak ku teh, served by non muslim will definitely be non halal. i wouldn't patronise them even they have on their menu mee rebus, mee curry, nasi lemak and even satay.

there are not many halal wanton mee sellers because they are not able to put in place the right ingredients for a delicious soup enjoyed by the non muslim.

so if there is a muslim stall offering bak ku teh, i will be there. make no bone about it-bak ku teh is just a name for that particular dish, and ribs of lamb or cow can be used.

bak chang is another case. where the meat used is pork by the non muslim. but halal bak chang sold used chicken or beef instead. the word bak means meat,it doesn't specify what kind.

so if it is halal, enjoy it!

Hi Dr Azly,

My name is Ken Lin. I am a Think Tank committee member for the Malaysian Aspiration Program (MAP) in Australia. A summary of who we are and what we do can be found here: http://www.mascavictoria.com/malaysian-aspiration-program-map.html

We will be having a Summit on Oct 6 in Melbourne, Australia. At this summit, several prominent speakers will be invited to speak on the theme: 'Malaysia's Coming of Age'. With great pleasure, we would like to invite you to be one of our speakers. May I know your email to send you a formal proposal on this matter? Thanks!
