My 2 questions!

Dear Pro. and All,

I am sorry for my 2 questions too late to blog because of time.

So hope you will understand it.

1- In International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Malaysian government shall not establish a legitimate interest to Lina Joy to conversion her identity. Because on Art. 18 of UDHR said that “everyone shall has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religions. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, ...and teaching”.

And the Universal Declaration on Human Right, the government of Malaysia also could not establish a legitimate interest to Lina Joy Case: On UDHR, art. 18 stated that “Everyone has the right to freedom of everyone shall has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this rights includes freedom to change his religion or belief, teaching, practice, worship and observance”.

Anyway Malaysian government state that itt is easy to become a Muslim, but it is hard to change religion, because Malaysian government never signs UDHR and ICCPR. And it is likely to invoke to justify this measure because Islamic country like Malaysian shall not allow changing his or her identity.

2. If I were in Lina Joy position, I would not request to change my identity because it is not serious to be a Christian, so many people in Malaysia who has get married Christian but nothing happened with them. And base on Art.18 ICCPR state “everyone right to freedom of religious belief, to change, or adopt another religion as they wish”

It is not serious to be a Christian, but you should not born to be weak. I mean you should claim for what you want and express your concerns to the others because you are not alone. The others may be waiting to help you. So it is not risk to oppose the government like Lina.

Dear Savoeun,

What i mean in this question is that, if we believe in something, we don't have to express too much to the world. You only keep in mind that you're having it, then it's always with them. sometimes they don't have to put a sign that they believe in this or believ in that to let people know that they a loyal follower.
