Akta Hasutan

Akta Hasutan 1948 merupakan suatu akta undang-undang di Malaysia yang digubal untuk menghalang perbincangan yang dikatakan sebagai menghasut. Akta ini sebenarnya digubal oleh penjajah British pada tahun 1948. Akta ini menjadikan ucapan yang "mempunyai kecenderungan menghasut" sebagai suatu kesalahan jenayah.

Written "Dua Kalimah Syahadah", then my wife advised me not to mention "Non Muslim" words. It's offensive and may get caught by Akta Hasutan with what I have been written.. So my article have been deleted. Few days later I refer to my friend who have working experience in publishing field. She told me it happened where some people interpret few of these article as "Hasutan" or having offence to them, they print it out and taking it to court. Even though blogger's intention is not to do so..

What a "Misinterpret"...
In Malaysia, non muslim don't have to worry anything about religion because everyone are have freedom in embrace any religion they want. It's stated in Akta Perlembagaan Persekutuan :


Perkara 3. Agama bagi Persekutuan.

(1) Islam ialah agama bagi Persekutuan; tetapi agama-agama lain boleh diamalkan dengan aman dan damai di mana-mana Bahagian Persekutuan.
 
Perkara 11. Kebebasan beragama.
 
(1) Tiap-tiap orang berhak menganuti dan mengamalkan agamanya dan, tertakluk kepada Fasal (4), mengembangkannya.

(2) Tiada seorang pun boleh dipaksa membayar apa-apa cukai yang hasilnya diuntukkan khas kesemuanya atau sebahagiannya bagi maksud sesuatu agama selain agamanya sendiri.

(3) Tiap-tiap kumpulan agama berhak--
(a) menguruskan hal ehwal agamanya sendiri;
(b) menubuhkan dan menyenggarakan institusi-institusi bagi maksud agama atau khairat; dan
(c) memperoleh dan mempunyai harta dan memegang dan mentadbirkannya mengikut undang-undang.

(4) Undang-undang Negeri, dan berkenaan dengan Wilayah-Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Labuan dan Putrajaya, undang-undang persekutuan boleh mengawal atau menyekat pengembangan apa-apa doktrin atau kepercayaan agama di kalangan orang yang menganuti agama Islam.
(5) Perkara ini tidaklah membenarkan apa-apa perbuatan yang berlawanan dengan mana-mana undang-undang am yang berhubungan dengan ketenteraman awam, kesihatan awam atau prinsip moral.



Also recalled my muallaf friends experience, no one willing to teach him Islam untill he registered officially at Pejabat Agama. Now he is taking initiative to learn Iqra till able to recite Al Quran few weeks later. I guess pendakwah afraid to teach him before reverted officially also due to "Akta Hasutan". 

Can't be denied, from the newspaper I read everyday and Internet forum, Islam always being misunderstood. Especially one of the case in adopting daugther after one of the marriage partner embraced Islam. Mother and daughter who embrace Islam are criticized by family as being "Brainwashed".

In order to respect non muslim in right of embrace any religion, muslim forbidden to share or preach to them because it may break the law "Akta Hasutan". I am thinking over and over again about this issue, now I understand why I was misunderstood a lot about Islam. No one would dare to come near me and say "What Islam is really about", but I was left alone to find the answer on my own. 

It happens due to the reaction from whole community, where everyone have their own freedom and right, especially Religion. I know a lot conflicts and misunderstands between religion, based on facts and dalil. But I have to give up in publishing such article and remain silent forever. I need time to rearrange my thoughts, feeling blur in my next step of writing blog.  

Perhaps, I will never talk about "non muslim", religion comparison, conflicts in community, and everything seems related to "Hasutan".


Need to clear my mind, hush for a little while and trying to understand this article.
(Am I also being challenge by them?)  :
Pastikan Islam Kekal Agama Persekutuan. 
Ancaman Penubuhan IFC di Malaysia

And also the same situation face by Muhammad Rasyidi Abdullah in this blog's link :
Warkah Untuk Majalah Al-Islam



Terasa buntu dan tiada daya untuk menulis lagi, saya membuka Al-Quran sambil memohon petunjuk dari Allah SWT, kemudian saya ternampak ayat ini.. Mungkin ada hikmahNya. 
Ia menciptakan manusia dari air benih, (setelah sempurna kejadiannya), tiba-tiba menjadilah ia seorang pembantah yang terang jelas bantahannya.

(Al-Nahl : 4)

  1. Menyampaikan perkara berkaitan Islam bagi orang Islam merupakan kewajipan....kalau ditanya diakhirat nanti, tentu sukar nak dijawab. Teruskan menyebarkan kebenaran. Dakwah wajib, hidayah ALLAH yang punya, tapi HIDAYAH perlu dicari, ia takkan datang sendiri.....

  2. Nonsense! Only with more sharing and preaching of Islam's teaching then only we will bring closer the non-muslim to Islam. Otherwise, Islam will always remains a distanced and walled religion from other races/religion group.

    This is also why the negative perception of Islam can never be corrected.

    Benar, Hidayah tidak akan dapat sekiranya hamba Allah SWT sendiri tidak mengambil inisiatif untuk mendekatiNya.

    Insyaallah, saya akan teruskan menulis tetapi dengan penulisan yang lebih neutral.
