joyless joy

Lina Joy trial.
So the verdict is out.
Her long wait for her conversion to Christianity to be recognised by law is over - the Federal Court ruled that she remains a Muslim and her religious status will not be removed from her identity card.

As the people outside of Palace of Justice rejoiced, I can't stop but wonder why do I still feel unchanged? The eerie feeling of unsatisfaction.

At the very least I should join the crowd, okay I must admit I feel relieved that the decision made was grounded by legal and logic reasons. But thats that.

I feel unchangedly sad.
For the question to convert out of Islam to even arise, but my point is that, the country is not even Islamic enough to be able to to educate her people on Islam.

So why the brouhaha when somebody opts out of Islam?

When "they" are not doing the job to us Malaysian Muslims how to be good Malaysian Muslims.

Tell me they're not just dozens out there waiting to do the same.
Tell me that we're preventing the kids from doing bad. From becoming bad.
Tell me our country is safe.

Please do not hide these facts, I'm not a blue eyed boy who needs sheltering from big bad boys.I need to know how to react and protect myself.

The cancer in our society is emerging.
And Lina is not an epilogue.
It is the outcome of what our society had became.

Help.

Prevention is something.
Education is everything.
