Dr. Maszlee Barua Amanah, Penganalisis Politik cikai



Pada 8 Julai lalu, portal berita The Malaysian Insight melaporkan kenyataan Dr Maszlee Malik dalam satu forum bertajuk ‘Deceitful? Distracting? Or Dedicated? Evangelicals and Current Controversies’ yang diadakan di Menara Wesley, Kuala Lumpur, pada hari itu.

Kenyataan Dr Maszlee di dalam forum anjuran badan pemikir Kristian, Kairos Dialogue Network, ini dilaporkan di dalam berita bertajuk “Evangelicals latest BN scapegoat, interfaith forum told” dan “Kristian Malaysia tidak sokong Zionism, kata forum antara agama”.

Berita bertajuk “Evangelicals latest BN scapegoat, interfaith forum told” ini melaporkan:
“THE recent round of anti-evangelical Christian bashing was part of a pattern where Barisan National (BN) looked for scapegoats to distract the public from its weak position, a political scientist said at an interfaith forum on Christian evangelicals today.

Dr Maszlee Malik said BN politicians had employed this tactic in the past by politicising issues involving ethnic Chinese, Singapore or allegations of ‘Christianisation’, in order to rally support and stoke Malay or nationalist sentiments.

Today he addressed evangelical concerns about recent rhetoric, such as lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusoff’s accusation that Selangor Assembly Speaker Hannah Yeoh had used her biography to proselytise Muslims, the uproar last month over the Jerusalem Jubilee celebration in a Malacca church that was eventually cancelled, and a call by a Muslim human rights group to ban evangelical Christianity.
“If you notice, all this bashing and blaming of scapegoats is when BN is in crisis,” said Maszlee at the forum ‘Deceitful? Distracting? Or Dedicated? Evangelicals and Current Controversies’ held at Menara Wesley in Kuala Lumpur today.

Some academics and think tanks inflame these sentiments, added Maszlee, who also teaches at the International Islamic University Malaysia in the Faculty of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences.

Kamarul Zaman, who made issue out of Yeoh’s book, is a an academic at Universiti Utara Malaysia, while the call to ban evangelical Christianity was made by the Centre of Human Rights Research and Advocacy (Centre), a think-tank formed by a coalition of Islamic organisations, which includes other academics.”
Berita bertajuk “Kristian Malaysia tidak sokong Zionism, kata forum antara agama” pula melaporkan:
“Maszlee juga mengatakan yang serangan anti-evangelical Kristian ialah sebahagian daripada cara Barisan Nasional (BN) mencari kambing hitam bagi mengalihkan perhatian rakyat daripada kedudukannya yang semakin lemah.

Dia berkata ahli politik BN pernah menggunakan taktik yang sama dengan mempolitikkan isu melibatkan kaum China, Singapura atau tuduhan ‘Kristianisasi’, dalam cubaan untuk meraih sokongan dan mempergunakan sentimen Melayu atau kebangsaan.
