The Kedah state government is God?

The state is God?
By Zan Azlee

APRIL 20 – I am actually dumbfounded as to where in the religion of Islam that says the Kedah state government is God? This is because, as far as I know, Muslims are actually only prohibited to ever question the will of God.

We are however, perfectly allowed, and even encouraged, to question what is not clear to us in order to understand it better. So, I am baffled as to why the Kedah state legislative assembly has decided to amend the Mufti and Fatwa Enactment (Kedah Darul Aman) 2008.

It was passed unanimously by the House that:

“Any fatwa decided by the state mufti or Fatwa Committee, whether gazetted or not, cannot be challenged, appealed, reviewed, denied or questioned in any civil or syariah court”.

As I have mentioned previously, I don’t really know they can do this because if I’m not mistaken, members of the Kedah assembly are ordinary people and not God. [Click to read the rest of the article at The Malaysian Insider]

“Muslims are actually only prohibited to ever question the will of God.” Wow, it must feel great to presuppose that one is even able to know the will of God before he or she can proceed to question it.

To be or not to be, is not the presumption. Is it falsifiable or not, is.
