Makkal Sakthi Team Interview

This is my inpromptu interview or dialogue with members of the Makkal Sakthi team who were at the recent Ceramah Perdana of Tuan Guru Datuk Hj Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat which was peacefully conducted at the MPAJ Padang of Pandan Indah, Selangor Darul Ehsan.

The Makkal Sakthi team was led by Brother Ramamoorthi Kalimuthu, the (P119) Titiwangsa Parliamentary Indian Community Representative. Brother Ramamoorthi is the one wearing the vest.

Brother Kumaran who wears the Makkal Sakthi T shirt spoke in English.

I shared with them about the signs of Asma'ul Husna on our palms and also about other matters.

To me as a Muslim blogger, I have no qualms in speaking with any true Malaysian and even if the Hindraf leaders had issued anti Islamic statements in their early days, I presume that they did so out of their desperate situations back then.

I do believe that the Hindraf leaders who are being held under the Internal Security Act at Kamunting now were wrong in lumping us together with the BN's ruthless ways and thus had mistakenly issued such hurtful statements.

With proper dialogue and understanding, I believe that there is still hope for those in the Makkal Sakthi to work successfully with the Pakatan Rakyat leadership especially with PAS and PKR.

All it takes is willingness on the part of the Makkal Sakthi HINDRAF leadership in learning more about the difference between UMNO and PAS Muslims.

Once they do that, the future for co-operation between the Makkal Sakthi Hindus and Pakatan Rakyat Muslims in learning to co-exist in peace and harmony will be much more brighter and possible.

Makkal Sakthi have done well by joining the PAS Supporters Club and now have the support and backing of Malaysia's largest Islamic party.

With a win win objective put to practice by all members of the Pakatan Rakyat Malaysians, a better future for all will not be very hard to achieve in the coming days! Insya Allah.

YB Iskandar Samad joined us for a photo shoot and this video for posterity.

I also managed to get Brothers Ramamoorthi and Kumaran to speak to the viewers here in Tamil and English respectively.

I find it suprising that an Indian kafir is suddenly your brother, oh dear Mahaguru.. Is it because he is a member of PAS?

MAHAGURU58 said...

Assalamualaikum brother,

Hehehehe..your question is how come Mahaguru58 calls an Indian Kaffir as his brother?

Well, young man, just to refresh your memory, practically every human being here on Earth is but the descendant of Our Father Saiyidina Adam Alaihis Salam, a Prophet of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and born from Our Mother Saiyidatina Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha.

From what I have studied and am still studying, all souls created by Allah Azza Wa Jalla are Muslims as revealed in the Holy Al Qur'an Al Kareem Surah Al A'raaf Verses 172-173:

172. Wa-ith akhatha rabbuka min banee adama min thuhoorihim thurriyyatahum waashhadahum AAala anfusihim alastu birabbikum qaloo bala shahidna an taqooloo yawma alqiyamati inna kunna AAan hatha ghafileena

172. When thy Lord drew forth from the Children of Adam - from their loins - their descendants, and made them testify concerning themselves, (saying): "Am I not your Lord (who cherishes and sustains you)?"- They said: "Yea! We do testify!" (This), lest ye should say on the Day of Judgment: "Of this we were never mindful":

173. Aw taqooloo innama ashraka abaona min qablu wakunna thurriyyatan min baAAdihim afatuhlikuna bima faAAala almubtiloona

173. Or lest ye should say: "Our fathers before us may have taken false gods, but we are (their) descendants after them: wilt Thou then destroy us because of the deeds of men who were futile?"

So, as I see it each person who is born as a human being is by Fitrah a Muslim and technically we are all brothers or sisters.

Circumstances brought about by way of the generations after generations of human beings over the passage of Time where the children of Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam reneged on their promises to their Father to remain as submitters to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala eventually committed shirk and breached their solemn oaths to Adam Alaihis Salam and started to worship other beings real or imagined committing Kuffur towards Ar Rahman.

Yet Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala through His Endless Mercies, allows Mankind to submit to Him by Way of Choice but didn't let those renegades to wander on this Earth as they pleased?

Allah Rabbul Jalil continued to send to Mankind prophets and Messengers to guide them back to His Rahmah and as you should know, there has been more than 124,000 prophets and 5 Ulul Azmi Messengers sent to Mankind who remain as brothers and sisters despite differing in Faith and Iman towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

The Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, Bahai's, etcetera maybe Kaffirs towards Allah Azza Wa Jalla but still they are our brothers and sisters, continuing the lineage of the Blessed Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam.

So to me, calling anyone as brother or sister doesn't come to mean that just because they are not Muslims, they cease to be my brother or sister amongst the progeny of Adam Alaihis Salam and Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha.

If you failed to realize that, then here is the reality that you have to ponder upon?

Are they not our brothers or sisters?

Each and every human male being is our brother and every female is a sister to us.

There are several types or categories of Kaffir and Muslims.

There are those amongst the Kaffir Christians and Jews who mean us no harm and they too are seeking for peace and harmony. They are described as the People of the Book and amongst the notable ones is King Negus @ An Najashi a righteous and honorable Christian King of Etiopia who gave shelter and protection to a group of Muslim refugees from Makkah.

Go read about this gentle Christian whose tears streamed down his cheeks upon hearing from Jaafar ibni Abi Talib about the Messiah Isa Al Masih and his Blessed Mother Siti Maryam who are glorified in the Holy Qur'an as true servants of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and that we Muslims are the ones closest to true Christians in faith.

I have shared about this gentle soul here in my blog:

Calling someone brother or sister is just that sir.

It doesn't matter whether that person is a Muslim or a Kaffir?

Maybe you and others out there have yet to fully comprehend all that which I am sharing here?

There is just so much that we should share with our fellow human beings but I just don't think that I will have the opportunity to write about all of them before my time is up?

Nevertheless, I hope that you and others who have yet to comprehend or digest what this speck of dust presently alive is saying will do your own studies about our faith and not jump to conclusions or fall prey to the delude of misinformation plaguing this world.

There's a whole world of opportunities out there today for us to go do Dakwah al Islamiyah and try to learn as much as we can through proper mutually beneficial
dialogues and interactions between us and those who have yet to be Muslims.

At the end of the day, each and everyone of us will be held accountable for all that we say, share or do and it is None Other than Allah Azza Wa Jalla to Whom we shall all have to answer?

All my best wishes to you sir in your quest to learn the truth.

Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.

Wassalamualaikum Warahmatulillahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.

Hindraf campaign was indeed very stingingly hurtfull to all Muslims.
The way they expressed anti-Islam sentiments had enraged millions, irrespective of Political affliation or even Nationality.
I was utterly disgusted and dismayed.
