Kuttuvilakku - A picture speaks a thousands words


Sometimes it is pointless to keep on trying to make my point to Shalu that the lighting of the 'Kuttuvilakku' is not merely a 'cultural' thingy but an important Hindu act of worship of the Hindu deities.

So yours truly did a Yahoo Search and came up with this excellent proof of my saying that what Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak and Dato Seri Rais Yatim did at the previous Deeparaya stint is an act of Shirik towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

Another link shows the significance of the kuttuvilakku as an important Hindu religious symbol.

I leave it to you the readers to decide as to whether I am wrong in my findings as per my earlier post about agreeing with the Ulamaks of Malaysia not to associate religious practices with social events such as coming up with the 'idiotic' Kongsiraya this and that!

We did not have any problems all these while in attending festive celebrations of the various faiths and races since the days of yore!

The coining of the phrase is the work of the former Minister of Information. It is he who is responsible for the advent of this unnecessary cause of concern for Muslims who value their purity of faith and adherence to the rules and guidelines of Aqeedah as a true Muslim.

It is up to the government to stop using such an outrageous term that speaks of mixing the religious celebrations. What has JAKIM done about this ?

No one's stopping anyone from going to have a good feast and chit chat with friends and neighbours from various faiths and cultures.

Just stop committing these acts of Shirik to Allah SWT in the false pretences of muhibbah by getting the ignorants to carry out such acts that are part and parcel of another's faith practices.

I rest my case. :)
