|My archetypal beautiful Malay girl then!|
When I was young I remember a religious sect based in Gombak 8th mile where the women were covered from head to toe, in black. They belong to some kind of a religious cult other wise known as the follower of the teaching of Tarikat, a deviant Muslim sect as I was told.
Whenever they board the Len Seng bus to town they were frowned upon by others, through the mental hounding of these sect they, after many years later, disappeared.
I was so happy, and we Malays were en route to progress where Malay movie were making good movies the female movie stars were beautiful women wearing kebaya and baju kurung. Saloma, Zaiton, Rahmah Rahmat, Rosnani (she is still beautiful until now) Latifah Omar, and many more beautiful Malay women who were not wearing tight head scarf.
P. Ramlee and his two stooges were even poking fun at religious deviant, and his movies acted as a social glue that bonded the different races together
I also remember how beautiful Malay women competing in beauty contest, I was so proud.
Today after the Gombak religious cult, Malays again are appearing to be regressing they are again being forced by the unseen Malaysian Taliban to "behave".
They have their head covered again, when knowing the hair is not your aurat to be covered.
It appears the Malaysian Taliban have deviated from the true path of Islam, and their raison detre is only to control woman's body (menguasi anggota wanita) .
But Muslim women in this country, even though they are the majority, are too weak to resist these Malaysian Taliban. They are too weak to even trying to find out what is a true Islam and what is Islam concocted by these Malaysian Taliban.
If PAS rules, it will impose all of the insecure Malay male behaviour and passing it as Islamic. If PAS rule Malay women in the whole country will be forced to be covered from head to toe.
As it is now, my weak Malay women just succumbed to a strange order of instruction given out by Malay Taliban maleswho laced their instruction with some Koranic verses, to legitimise it, and told the women to cover their head.
Even these insecure Malay Male religious zealots cannot define what is aurat.
Meanwhile my beautiful Malay women will waste their God-given beauty by covering themselves, why because our insecure Malay religious men are not all that well versed in their own religion, as to what is true teaching of Islam!
To the Malay women, I say to wake up and not allow these Malaysian Talibans to control your mind, body and soul.....be a Woman!!
