So I disappeared again for several days before reappearing again. I make no apologies for doing that, after all I have a lot of things to do with my life than to create nasty Facebook pages about someone else’s son or insulting and demeaning Islam via Facebook and Twitter, like a certain fugly, flowerhorn face bitch that I know.
Anyway, I think it is time for me to stop posting about eclectic or personal news about myself or my family on this blog, and go back to what I originally intended for it when I first started it: to focus in issues related to religion and comparative religion. I would have included issues about Malaysian politics as well, but since I already own Suara Malaysia, I don’t really quite see the point. Perhaps I will make one or two comments about Malaysian politics occasionally, but it will no longer be the focal point of this blog like it used to be.
For eclectic and personal blog postings, I have decided that I will continue doing that at House of Ideas.
Excerpt from my comment here, republished for archival purposes.
Muslim Bloggers Alliance was “formed” in late 2007 at Markas Tarbiyah PAS Taman Melewar, smack-bang in the middle of Dewan Dato’ Fadzil Noor. Its original intention was to act as an Islamically-inclined “pressure group” to counter the Muslim liberals in the National Alliance of Bloggers (All-Blogs). At the time, the issue of IFC/Lina Joy was a major concern in the blogosphere and many anti-Islam forces were using this issue as a tool to bash Islam (and PAS) with. Office-bearers were elected on that night, but only on a pro-tem basis until a proper general assembly with all members fulfilling quorum can be held.
Now this mahafraud (pro-tem president, by the way!) has turned this organisation, which was supposed to be originally aligned to PAS, into his own personal one-man show. He is now even cohabitating with All-Blogs, the very group that MBA was supposed to counteract against! This is already the end of 2010, and MBA has yet to be registered or formally recognised in any form. You can easily see how far MBA has fallen ever since this mahafraud subverted it for his own agenda.
This is the real, behind-the-scenes story which many people do not know, except for those who were present at that meeting at Taman Melewar.
I decided to get around importing my very old blog posts, complete with comments and all, dating back from 2005 – 2007, during a time when this blog was still hosted on the menj.org domain under the same name. The reasons why I took it offline were numerous, chiefly among them being that I wanted a new direction for myself and the blog. At the same time, I do recognise the value of these old posts, as they were made during my formative years while cementing my ideology and it shaped up into who I am today.
So in recognition of that fact, I bring to you Critical Thoughts Retro…bigger, longer and uncut. I’ve dumped all the old posts under one category as they are here strictly for archival and historical purposes. Most of the posts have broken links and broken images anyway, so they are in fact very outdated. If I actually have the time, I might go around fixing them but I don’t plan to do so for the time being.
