If we believe in this business of swearing on the Quran or any holy book just to prove our innocence, then we allow a very dangerous precedence to take place in our quest for justice.
Can guilt or innocence be proven by mere words on a Holy Book, and not facts, evidence and solid proof?
I’ve also heard that only the guilty who is desperate to prove his or her innocence will turn to the Holy Book. Is this the case for Saiful?
And there are Ulamaks who do not think it is necessary to swaer on the Quran to proof your innocence.
But perhaps Saiful wants to do it to relieve himself?
I’ve taken this oath to prove that my allegations are completely true. This is the best way for me to attain justice in the world and the hereafter and for me to redeem my pride and dignity as Allah is the only place where I can complain to. (Saiful).
Attain justice in the world by way of swearing on the Quran? Then lets shut down the Palace of Justice and leave this country in the hands of gangsters and triads.
Believe me, even thieves, robbers and murderers have a code of honour.
Malays and Muslims may be easily swayed by this action, but Malaysians will find it hard to swallow, especially when it came in the wake and eve of the Permatang Pauh nominations, where Saiful’s alleged sodomiser, Anwar Ibrahim is a candidate.
Saiful also claimed that this is between Anwar and him, so why make this a public gallery?
By the way, what happens to Anwar’s charge now that Saiful says he did not consent to the sexual act?
I think people are more interested to see if Anwar can even make it through with his nomination papers tomorrow as there are rumours all around that the alleged ‘bias and government controlled’ Election Commission would be pretty strict to him when he files his documents.
Will we have a by-election or a walk-over?
Lets take out all our Holy Books and pray for justice to prevail.
