Malaysia is an Islamic State

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is an Islamic State but protects the rights of ethnic minorities, Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak said Tuesday (July 17th). "Islam is the official religion, and we are an Islamic state," he said. "We have always been driven by our adherence to the fundamentals of Islam."

What the heck does he mean ?!? I believe many people are confused with Najib's recent statement but more will have their own saying too.

Ronnie Liu has share some of his opinion in his blog, Color-Blind :
"Having Islam as the official religion does not make Malaysia an Islamic state.
A government driven by Islamic fundamentals also would not make it an Islamic state. What more in Malaysia, we were not driven by Islamic fundamentals as claimed by the deputy prime minister. How could he call Malaysia an Islamic state when we still have licensed casino like the Genting, lotteries like Magnum, Toto, 3+1D and Bigsweeps?

And how about draconian laws that clearly go against the tenets of Islam like ISA (detention without trial) and OSA?

Does Najib know that in an Islamic state, you cannot have Sultan or King as the supreme leader of the land has to be an ulamak ( religious guru)? "

Siapa betul dan Siapa B.S. ?!?
It is up to reader them self to make their own judgments.
