Both are Hindus from Penang but Suventhiran Selvaraj shines forth as a true blue Malaysian who is all for the sharing of useful knowledge between us. I for one respect such a well balanced youth like Suventhiran who comes across as a level-headed person who knows how to differentiate between a Comparative Religious teacher like Dr. Zakir and those who go around insulting others for no rhyme or reason.
On the other hand, we have someone like this Ramasamy fellow who often spews forth hurtful words and caustic comments labeling Dr. Zakir Naik as a ‘Satan’ offending peace loving Malaysian Muslims such as us.
I have watched Dr. Zakir Naik successfully hold the event titled ‘ SIMILARITIES BETWEEN HINDUISM AND ISLAM’ which was attended by hundreds of thousands of Hindus and Muslims over there in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India itself where there were many appreciative members of the Hindu audience who thanked Dr.Zakir for his valiant efforts to bring about a mutual understanding between Hindus and Muslims.
No one was harmed in any way and everyone was happy to have attended the talk and actively participated in the open Question & Answer session.
We who are living here in Malaysia need to know more about each other’s religions and to come to a mutual understanding between us.
In the Glorious Qur’an, in Surah Al Kafirun, Chapter 109 Verses 1 to 6 :
Dr. Zakir is not forcing anyone here to become Muslim! He is here to answer anyone’s questions about Islam or if they want to know what it is about?
What is the truth about Islam?
He is the world’s most eminent ‘Student’ of Comparative Religion and can easily relate to any questioner the relevant scriptures from Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, etc. and explain in depth about those revelations like no one else can!
When narrow minded persons object to such a beneficial series of lectures to be held here which will enable interested parties to learn more about whatever it is that has been at the back of their minds, then it will be a tremendous loss to the truth-seekers.
At the time of this posting, the authorities have reversed their earlier decision to stop Dr. Zakir Naik from delivering his lectures at UTem and in Stadium Bukit Jalil, KL after various parties consisting of concerned Malaysians protested against such a ban by the Inspector General of Police!
Here is the IGP’s update on the matter.
I believe that Dr. Zakir Naik is doing just that!
May his visit benefit everyone of us. Ameen.
