SECULAR OVER RELIGION

Alright , let's get straight to the point ? What point ? I'm talking about secularisme . Well , you see , secularisme is a very simple concept . It is defined as the separation of religion from the state , whereby the religion cannot interfere in the state affairs , and the state must not assert their authority over religion , by suppressing it or adjusting the religion to fit their personal agendas .


So , what's the issue here ? The issue is that whether all the states and organizations who claimed themselves to be secular , democratic and liberal , really are secular ? Or is it just just lip services to satisfy the masses ?
From my point of view , only very few states and organizations who claimed to be secular , had truly lived to my expectations . These were the states and organizations who had actually adhered to the strict principles of secularisme , where there is a strict separation of religion and state .


So , my next question is " How to be a secular state ? " . It's very simple . You just have to make sure that religion does not interrupt the state administration . The exclusion of religion from the state , does not mean the elimination of religion from public life .In fact , a secular state should protect the freedom of every citizen to practise , propagate and to convert to another religion . The citizens who are atheists and free-thinkers should also protected under the law and order of the state .

 
A secular state should not attempt to interfere in the religious affairs or to supress certain religious denominations , organizations or minorities who may not share the same faith as the majority . This is to prevent religion from being used as a reason for discriminations on the basis of religion . As a result , the people will have the right to practise their beliefs without the fear of persecutions .

NO RELIGION IN STATE , NO STATE IN RELIGION

CROSSROAD OF LIFE

Right now , I'm 21 . Yup , 21 , an age where people are supposed to embark on a journey of self-discovery , to discover their true passion , interests , strength , weaknesses , whatsoever . 21 can also be used to indicate the period whereby you should be able to figure out , what are you in the next 10 years ? Are you going to be somebody or nobody .

As for me , I'm not really sure about myself , much less the choices and decisons that I had made . Is it the best possible or should I try harder ? As the saying goes , life is like a box of chocolate . You''ll never know what's inside the package . That's all for now

THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH

I had one question for you , which religion can provide you with all the answers to our problems in this world ? There are so many religions in this world , who claimed that they are perfect and the validity of the belief itself should not be questioned by anyone .

My second question is , is there such thing as an absolute truth ? It's like a religion which is flawless , plus free of human interpretation and interference . From my point of view , there is no such thing as absolute truth . Even , I had to admit myself , that Buddhism , the religion in which I was born into , was neither perfect nor close to absolute truth . Sometimes , I always questioned myself , why Buddhism is so different from other religion ? Why are there so many contradictions in Buddhist scriptures ? What is the true purpose of karma ?

As I was trying to comprehend the true essence of Buddhism , I came to realise that Buddha himself , told his disciples not to  blindly believe in whatever word omitted by Him . He strongly urged his followers to investigate every  aspect of the religion , and then , to make their decision of whether to accept or reject Buddhism . The method of critical thinking and thorough judgement approach , promoted by Lord Buddha , had certainly won the heart of many people . As a result , many had choose to convert to Buddhism .

Now , did I use this article to promote the goodness of Buddhism and to belittle the other ? No , I am trying to make a point that the religion with absolute truth is the religion which truly engages your heart and mind . Some people are favouring monotheistic faith over agnostic belief , simply because the concept of one single God , sounded more logical to them . If that's the case , then we should respect their personal choice .

Remember , no religion is superior above another . The only religion with absolute truth is the religion which engages your heart , mind and soul . Every religious belief , should be open to criticism and feedbacks , because it shows that people do really care about the religion

A GUIDE TO NOWHERE

Just now , on SOCIAL MEDIA , a guy reminded me that we are college students , not school dwellers . Honestly saying , he got a point of his own . But , from my point of view , colleges , universities and schools are just the same thing that we will get through in various stages of our lives .

I mean , WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE ? Whether you are studying in tertiary , secondary and primary institutions , you will be forced to attend classes , lectures , doing your assignments and sitting for your final exams . Of course , while you are studying in those institutions , you will have bear an incredible amount of mental pressure due to time constraints to juggle between co-curricular activities and academics . These mental and emotional pressure were so high that it cannot be measured in kilo pascal or Tesla . 

However , there were one fundamental difference between school and colleges . In school , you are called kids , teenagers . But in colleges and universities , you are called adults . Thus , when it comes to adults , things are going to change dramatically . You will realise that , suddenly , you are on your own . Parents will not be by your side anymore . Lecturers will teach as if they are in a hurry to get married . They just want to get things done . For the first time in your life , you will get to taste the real flavour of adulthood ; an age of self-discovery which could leads to unimaginable success , or an age of self-destruction , where you mix with the idiots . 

Those idiots who thought that they were always right and the world were wrong . These minions thought that it's fine to skip classes , to plagiarise others' assignments and not studying hard for exams . Honestly saying , in the end , they will get nothing from their colleges except a love letter saying that " YOU'RE TERMINATED " and also a plaque in the Hall of Fames For Losers . By then , even the God will not help them . 

So , whats the moral of the story ? The moral of the story is stop dreaming as if you're still a child and act like an adult . Kids and retards do not really belong here . Adults do . Sometimes , when you are feeling down , all you need to say is " Aal izz well " and everything will be fine 

LIVE YOUR COLLEGE LIFE TO THE FULLEST . STUDY HARD AND MAKE YOUR LOVED ONES PROUD !!

BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT

To those of you who thought that Batman is just another DC Comics superhero , think again . Why did I say so ? What makes Batman much more superior than others ?

Before I begin the conversations , let us take a closer look on Batman . Did anyone of us thinks that Batman can fly at supersonic speed or single-handedly crush a fighter jet plane the way Ironman did ? No , of course not . By the way , he is just an eccentric billionaire who can only fly at that speed in one of his private jets . The only way for him to crush a plane is by shooting it down with one of his Batweapons . In the other word , he applies logics and science to do the impossible .

If you are an avid fan of Batman , like I do , you will remember of how his Batmobile and the Bat crushes an army of maniacs , headed by The Joker in the first sequel and Bane , on the second sequel . Somehow , i realised that , after watching Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises , my mind was completely washed . I finally realised that when you applied science logics with  brilliant military strategies , you can take down an entire nation , and I'm pretty sure that was the X-factor in getting an edge over your enemies .

Apart from that , I fell in love with Batman , not because he is Bruce Wayne , but because he is so humble in his act . He believes that action was his reward and the Gotham police force should take the credit . Remember when Commisioner Gordon's family was abducted by Harvey Dent , and that Batman  had to kill him in order to save Gordon's son . Batman took the blame for it , refusing to highlight his great efforts and assistance to the Gotham authorities in killing The Joker . Since then , he became the most sinful , most hated crmininals in the city .

By the way , how can I relate Batman to our daily life ? The only thing I can say is that there's a Batman in every us . Every civilians of this nation has a role to play in fighting crimes and any subversive activities which could jeopardize our security and well-being . I also believe that , anonymous citizens who fought criminals and terrorists , they are the true Batman . They are the Dark Knight , unsung heroes , who fought battles they are destined to die , in order to provide comfort and security for the homeland .

The last remaining question , who is Batman ? Nobody knows for sure who he is . But , trust me , he is always there with us , The Dark Knight lives in every of us , we just have to awaken it .

THE ROYAL COUPLE THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD

For those anti-monarchists who think that monarchies and sweet royal couples are the thing of the past , you better think again . The odds are you have overlooked the latest royal sensation from the much beloved , high profile Buckingham Palace . The moment the will-be-future King of England and his PRINCESS CHARMING was united in a royal wedding ceremony , the whole Great Britain and the world are caught in a tsunami wave . A tsunami wave of excitement that finally hit the British shores since the heydays of Prince Charles and Princess Diana , back in early 80s to late 90s . This time , even medias , politicians and other anti-royalist had to admit that there is something special about the couple , Duke and Duchess of Cambridge . Obviously , they can't afford to take this royal couple for granted

First of all , who is the real person behind mask of  Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ? The Duke is Prince William and the Duchess is Princess Kate Middleton . Both of them had been officially married in one of the most anticipated , most electrifying wedding occasion of all time . The ceremonial date , 29th April 2011 will always be remembered as the day Britain stood still and the day where the world are in a jovial mood as they " forgot " about their daily life struggles , immersing themselves in the wonderful world of British royal wedding .

The million dollar question is what makes this royal couple so special in the eyes of medias , paparazzi , common subjects , even the Hollywood celebrities ? From my point of view , this couple had possessed the greatest qualities of all ; they are extremely elegant and had that charming aura which melts everyone heart , while at the same time , maintaining the humbleness and down-to-earth policy when meeting with the commoners . Secondly , I adore them for they had been willing to patronise several charitable organisation across the nation . In fact , I was actually moved by words of encouragements from this couple to the underprivileged , physically and mentally disabled members of society who had seek shelter under the umbrella of these organisations . These words of motivation had certainly gave these people a reason to live for another day

To add on , I personally thinks that Prince William is a very brave man and will make a good King of England . His Majesty is currently serving as a pilot in the RAF search and rescue team and he has the dream to serve in peacekeeping missions in Afghanistan , only to be denied by the royalty , the government and the RAF itself on the basis that he is second in line to the royal throne . As for Princess Catherine , Duchess of Cambridge , I simply admire her timeless look and her brilliant sense of fashion . She also has the look and charismatic aura of a people ' s princess , making her a centre of attraction in every royal tour .

Well , I am neither a media critic nor having any formal or informal relationship with this couple , but I hope that this blog posting will give all of my readers a good reason not to overlook the charm and aura of this latest British sensation . I personally urged all the anti-monarchist out there to rethink your stand . My personal hope is that may God bless them in the journey to restore the glory and fame of being a part of the British royalties . As the saying goes , the sun never sets on the British Empire . Long live Will and Kate .

NOTE : THE AUTHOR NOT ONLY ADMIRE WILL AND KATE , HE IS ALSO A STAUNCH BELIEVER IN THE MONARCHY SYSTEM AND AM LOOKING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT MALAYSIAN ROYAL COUPLE SENSATION

DEMONSTRATION FOR DUMMIES

Alright , let ' s get down to business . Honestly speaking , I am not really a big fan of demonstration . By the way , for those people who think that staging a demonstration is a good idea , I would like you to think again .  Maybe these people will ask me a question , WHY ?? The reason is simple , what would you expect to get from a demonstration ?

If you thought that  the government will change their mind after receiving the memorandum of your demonstration , think again . Chances are instead of submitting to your claim , they will just ignore your referendums , survey polls and all those relevant data's regarding the cause in which you are fighting for . So what , you want to waste your time by creating another event of demonstration ? Do you really had nothing to do ? I leave this question to you .

Moreover , organising a demonstration is not an easy feat .  Accidents , mishaps ,  can be caused by unruly behaviours of some demonstrators . Just imagine , an anonymous person suddenly throws a hand grenade or started to shoot randomly to the people and the authorities . Just imagine how many civilians can get hurt or get killed in such  mishap . In the end , it is the organiser who will be persecuted under the law , instead of the real perpetrator . Basically , the organiser had become the scapegoat for the crime they did not commit .

Furthermore , I think that the Malaysian society as a whole must be vigilant and extra cautious in every demonstration they are about to take part . They must first investigate whether the claims , opinions and the purpose of such demonstration are truly genuine facts and figures in which it cannot be denied by any parties . Secondly , they must also know in which venue , the demonstration will be taking place .  This is because certain places such as Dataran Merdeka and Tugu Pahlawan are off-limit to any demonstrations and politically - motivated gatherings , considering the cultural and historical significance of these sites to Malaysia . The image of these places shall not be tarnished by these events .

Last but not least , I urged all of my readers to try not to " show off yourself " in the public too often . If you really think that the government had fall out of favour with the public , just use your voting power . Vote for the opposition . After all , Malaysia is a democratic nation . You can vote for anyone you like . Isn't it a better idea than demonstration ?
