Heavenly justice天网恢恢

I read a political commentary recently. Not so much be attracted by its content but by the ending paragraph.

The opening paragraph:

"Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has rejected the invitation by Anwar Ibrahim for a debate on the so-called 100-day reforms, and this decision indeed comes as no surprise to anyone.
"

one of the paragraphs:

"In Malaysia, race, religion and monarch are the three handiest tools when one is pressed against the wall."


The ending paragraph:

"Justice has long arms, and heavenly justice has even longer arms. Najib, and all other politicians who claim to believe in God, must remember even a powerful man like Saddam Hussein had to recite Quranic verses when he was being hanged. They must therefore not be deluded that they would go unpunished in the afterlife for whatever evil deed that they are currently plotting."

To my opinion, the Commentator has resigned to the fact that politicians are the ugliest lot, beyond persuasion and moral condemnation. Hopefully, the invocation of the name of God may frighten them.....

In Malaysia, the name of God has been has been called and heard every hour, every day, every corner of the land...so what do you think ?!?!


最近读了一篇时事评论。不是它的内容吸引了我,而是结尾确实是一个吸引人的地方。

文章的开首是:

『首相纳吉已经拒绝了安华的邀请,与他辩论所谓的『百天新政』,而这个决定早已经是预料中的事。 』

文中另一段:

『在马来西亚,当一个人受围困时,种族,宗教及君主之名是最方便的脱困工具。』

文章结束:

『法网难逃,但更是天网恢恢。纳吉及其他的政治人物,都是声称相信上苍的人,一定要记住,像沙旦胡申这么有权力的人,在被上吊之前,都要诵读可兰经的经文。他们不要自己骗自己,以为他们现在阴谋着要做的坏事,人不知,鬼不觉,不会受到任何处罚。

据我的看法,这位时事评述员也知道,马来西亚的政客,已经是到了百毒不侵的境界。劝说及道德良心的谴责,对他们已经是毫无作用,所以希望呼唤上苍之名,能够会有些警醒的作用。。。

在马来西亚,上苍(天主)之名的呼唤,每一天,每一刻,每个角落,都被引用,都可以听得到。。。你认为如何?

How good is it if every time when people utter the name of G_d, they think about the 'poor' amongst us: the persecuted, the stigmatized, the marginalised, the excluded, the socially isolated and all of the children, sisters and brothers of the human family that are suffering, and remind themselves how much there is to be done and there is so much that each individual person and community is duty bound to do something about it. Inactions and indifference towards injustice is much like colluding with it.

"Remember, one day you will appear before G_d and you will answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone." said the holy prophet of Islam in his last sermon on Mount Arafat.

Or as Jesus Christ said (Matthew 25:31-46):
"Whatever you did not do to the least of these your sisters and brothers, you did not do to and for me."
