WWE Randy Orton’s entrance song ‘Voices’ has lyrics that best respond to this issue:

I hear voices in my head
They council me, they understand
They talk to me
You got your rules and your religion
All designed to keep you safe
But when rules start gettin’ broken
You start questionin’ your faith
I have a voice that is my saviour
Hates to love and loves to hate
I have a voice that has the knowledge
And the power to rule your fate
I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that’s drying
I feel tension rising

Too much money wasted on those cheap publicity songs like Keluarga Malaysia. Better to put the money for better use to generate more return for the nation.

Respectfully, the Syariah law represents an Islamic matter and undoubtedly holds significance within the Muslim community. Consequently, it is their prerogative, and not a concern for the non-Muslim community.

However, when theological matters encroach upon the laws outlined in our Federal Constitution – a document crafted and enforced by our esteemed forefathers and agreed upon wholeheartedly – we must pause and reflect.
