BN Perak Govt celebrates Christmas off season.‏

Posted: 19 Jan 2011 05:05 AM PST

MEDIA STATEMENT


BN Perak State Government fixing 23rd January 2011 to celebrate Christmas defeats the spirit of celebrating the event.

I note with regret that the Perak BN Government deems it fit to celebrate Christmas 2010 out of season to celebrate it only on 23rd January 2011. Christmas is celebrated worldwide on 25th December 2010.

The purpose of a celebration is to observe the significance of an event, in our instant case the birth of Christ. Apart from that, a celebration uplifts and liberates the human spirit to bring happiness, gladness and joy.


The people of Perak are starting to feel the mood of celebrating Chinese New Year which falls on 3 February 2011. Therefore, to celebrate Christmas only on 23 January 2011 when the people are in the mood of celebrating Chinese New Year will overshadow the message and significance of the Christmas event. The festivity which Christmas brings to uplift the spirit of the people will also be lost.


I hope in future the State Christmas program will be celebrated during the season of Christmas.

国阵霹雳州政府定于2011年1月23日庆祝圣诞节违背了庆祝活动的精神。


我对国阵霹雳州政府在2011年1月23日过了圣诞节后才庆祝感到遗憾。全球都在2010年 12月25日庆祝圣诞节。

庆祝会的目的是在于认识基督诞生的重要意义。此外,庆祝会可提升和解放人的精神,带来幸福,欢乐和喜悦。

霹雳州的人们开始感受到于2011年2月3日庆祝农历新年的气氛。因此,在2011年1月23日庆祝圣诞,圣诞节的意义和气氛将会被庆祝农历新年的气氛所掩盖。而欢庆圣诞给于提升人的精神也将丢失。

我希望在今后,州的圣诞庆祝活动将在圣诞节举行。

BN Perak State Govt promoting falsehood in a religious event‏

Posted: 19 Jan 2011 04:34 AM PST

MEDIA STATEMENT

Dato Mah Hang Soon must not be allowed to promote falsehood in a religions event. The public demand a product as advertised, not a fake one.

On 6th January, BN Perak State Government Executive Councilor, Dato' Dr Mah Hang Soon announced that the well-known Christian Music group, Hillsong from Australia will take centre stage during the Perak State level Christmas and New Year celebrations at Stadium Indera Mulia in Ipoh on 23rd January, 2011.

Immediately, on the same day, the manager of Hillsong Music, Australia Mr. Timothy Whincop issued a letter confirming that the group performing at the event is not sanctioned or endorsed by Hillsong Music or Hillsong Church.

I have been given to understand that this matter has been brought to the attention of Dato' Dr Mah. Despite the said knowledge he insisted that the group performing on 23/1/2011 be promoted as from Hillsong from Australia.

Yesterday, Hillsong issued another letter confirming that Hillsong is not and will not be performing in any event in Ipoh, Perak on 23/1/2011 and reiterates that Hillsong's name may not be used without prior permission. Copies of their letters dated 6/1/2011 and 12/1/2011 are attached herewith.

Christianity promotes truth and respect for the rights of others. It is a shameful affair for Dato' Mah to promote falsehood.

Dato' Mah must let the public know exactly who is performing at the Christmas event. As the exco member in charge of consumer affairs, Dato' Mah has the duty not to mislead the public but to describe a product accurately.

Christians and other Malaysians are upset that Dato' Mah is not telling the truth. The public demand that they get the product as advertised, not a fake one.
