MUIS: Remarks against Christians and Jews have no place in today’s Singapore

Nalla Mohamed Abdul Jameel apologising to religious leaders

Following the conviction of an Imam from Masjid Jamae (Chulia) in South Bridge Road for insulting Christians and Jews during one of his Friday sermon, the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) has surfaced to issue a statement.

MUIS said that Imam Nalla Mohamed Abdul Jameel’s remarks against Christians and Jews have no place in today’s Singapore where all communities live in peace and harmony.

Imam Nalla’s comments had caused confusion and suspicion among non-Muslims and had damaged the image of Islam and Muslims in Singapore, said MUIS.

The 47-year-old’s comment had even caused some disquiet  within the Singapore-Muslim community, MUIS added.

The Imam had added in a supplication in which he sought God’s help against the Jews and Christians and this was not a divine message from the Quran but from a text which originated in his village back in India.

God help us against Jews and Christians.

MUIS cautioned against using supplications written by past religious scholars which live in a different era and circumstance.

Singapore’s Mufti Dr Fatris Bakaram hoped that this incident is a reminder to use social media with wisdom and abab (ethics and civility).

Meanwhile, the convicted Iman Nalla has been asked to leave Singapore.

    I read the report and the bugger will be deported as well. It says he has been in Singapore since 2010. The question is, we now need to import foreign “talent” to be imams too? Our local imams are not good enough or, as usual, there aren’t enough imams around?

    Just wait for it, some non locals will be popping up from time to time for religious issues, this guy won’t be the last for sure.

    This is only one imported imam who has been exposed. What about the others who are still lurking in the country? Do we need an act of terror beforethe fifth column is taken to task?

    The FUNNY thing is only when CAUGHT and EXPOSED then everyone WAYANG. If what this FTrash Imutt said was wrong, why did 2 others post it up on social media to “promote” it, no less one being an academic Professor at NUS? This clearly shows if no one complained, it would have had been accepted as right. Now, everyone remorseful, everyone apologises…blah blah blah.

    Everything in this forsaken rotting bled to death red dot is all WAYANG for show. Nothing of value, relevance and significance is ever resolved. Always dwell on trivia issues, like, unattended bags at MRT station becomes big national terrorist matter, wearing tudungs, making babies within conscripted spaces, happiness levels of MRT service standards, support of 30% water hike….BS after BS aafter BS…etc.and then still fabricate more incidents to generate excuses for passing new laws to contain citizens and policies to increase prices…etc. Pure unadulterated vile corrupt administration.

    It should be, “God help us against the REAL threat here-The White Demons !”

    Wake Up !

    I think the Muslims in Singapore should be more open minded and modernize themselves. As our country progresses to smart and digital world all religions should discard those old thoughts to better benefit all their followers in this new world. Back to reality please.

    This outcome of the “investigation” of the subversive imam is a clear validation of the judge Samuel Cole statement on the perseecution of Amos Yee, that the law in Singapore is politically biased. Same reason Calvin Cheng and Jason Neo were let off lightly, same reason Nallan and Khairudin were given just a slap on the hands. And it all started when LKY was allowed to say in print, Muslims will be the last to be integrated in multiracial Singapore – and allowed to get off with an “apology”.

  • Taleban:

    I am not a neither a Muslim nor Christian. The Islam text and Christian text have many common Prophets or personilities.. Example Adam & Eve, Moses/Musa,Ibrahim/Abraham, Yusof/Joseph, Sarah/Zara etc.
    Correct me if I am wrong, putting 2 and 2 together, the Muslim God aka Allah and the Christian God is one and the same GOD. Yes or no??
    If yes, than 1 party killing the other party makes no sense. All are children of GOD.
    Very confusing.

  • Ex-Muslim:

    That’s a lie from MUIS. I was a moslem for 24 years and I grew up attending Friday prayers at almost all the various mosques in Singapore. And this prayer to condemn and protect moslems from them is recited during Fiday prayers in SIngapore. In fact, it is recited in al-fateha, the verse that malay moslems in singapore recite during prayer time each time. So MUIS is lying because they themselves recite this prayer. But malay singaporeans don’t understand arabic. That’s how stupid they are. They parrot arabic but they don’t know what they are reciting. That’s why the malay NUS professor was right. It has been said for the longest time ever and now this preacher has spoilt the market because an enlightened moslem convert has spilled the beans. These freaks are everywhere. That include catholics who geneuinely believe that you and I are going to Hell.

    Read the book by KalaiVenkat – you will get enlightened
    His is a scholarly discussion about Abrahamic Religions viz Judaism, Christianity and Islam but with emphasis on Christianity. It is still relevant here.
