Alhamdulillah, ana cukup seronok baca MySinchew pagi ini. Seorang penulis MySinchew; yang juga seorang ‘paderi’ menyetujui pandangan Kerajaan Kelantan supaya mengharamkan judi di negeri tersebut. Dia puji. Siap sokong tindakan kita. Siap basuh MCA dan Gerakan yang mempertahan judi. Ana cukup lega. Masih ada harapan nampaknya parti kita ini; walaupun terpaksa berdepan dengan kalangan Melayu-Islam lemah iman di kawasan FELDA.

Sekurang-kurangnya, ada juga CINA KRISTIAN GEREJA yang menyokong tindakan kita. Pada ana, ini satu pengiktirafan yang besar. Ini membuktikan bahawa pandangan PAS adalah pandangan yang universal. Hebat! Alhamdulillah.

Inilah yang ana kata, kita mesti terus memperjuang Islam dalam apa juga keadaan. Jangan tinggalkan akar kita. Kalau PAS dah perjuangkan benda lain; kita dah tak berapa nak jadi parti Islam. Kita dah gagal nak tegakkan Islam. Ini yang selalu ana pesan kepada pimpinan. Dalam perbualan ana dengan Majlis Syura’ pun ana sampaikan benda yang sama. Ana ikhlas nak tengok parti kita ini mantap. Parti ini ‘kenderaan’ kita. Kenderaan untuk mencapai kesejahteraan dunia akhirat.

Sokongan yang diberikan oleh akhbar cina kepada PAS ini adalah sesuatu yang baru dalam politik. Tak payah ada Islamophobia. Tak payah ada PASphobia. Jangan takut. Kita bukan jenis nak potong tangan. Itu salah tanggapan.

Ana nak cuba petik apa yang Cina cakap pasal tindakan kita. Ana punya English pun cukup makan sahaja. Cubalah translate sendiri.

Don’t gamble away our children’s future – MySinchew.com

The issue PAS raised concerning the moral evil of gambling is not without merit, and we should seriously give the party a hearing on the matter, at least on the following grounds:

First of all, the most serious consequence of a legalized gambling scheme is the harmful impact it has on the poorest section of our society. Even without the benefit of extensive empirical studies, we can verify by objective observation that the largest number of gamblers come from the poorest section of our community.

Psychologically, many of these poor people have conditioned themselves to think that they could never uplift their current economic status, unless they could strike it big in a lottery draw or win big in other gambling schemes. Gambling gives them a hope of sort.

Secondly, the easily availablity of licensed gambling outlets leads to the temptation to try one’s luck, especially when the jackpot winnings nowadays can be in tens of millions ringgit. The inititate “harmless” play can eveutally develop into a habit, a bondage to the gambling demon. Many a life and family have been destroyed by the evil of addicted gambling.

Thirdly, one serious consequence of gambling is the rise of criminal activities. Desparate addicted gamblers will steal, rob, or even murder to get money to fuel their gambling habit or to repay gambling debts. Many are harassed by loan sharks who use all sorts of violent tactics against the borrowers and their innocent family members. The rise in snatch thefts, break-ins, robberies, etc is certainly one consequence of unrestrained gambling.
