P/s: Quite right actually and I do really agree with the Chairman of the Masjid Kinrara. At the first place you've been given the layout a.k.a blueprint of the housing development at that particular area and it has been designated by the developer that it will be built a 'Masjid' at the Seksyen 5, Kinrara. I bet all of you've already know about that and it isn't just a 'surau' which maybe doesn't bothered your peaceful life, it's a 'Masjid' which carry out a lot of activities within the designated area inside the 'Masjid' and most importantly without making any road block and etc. that could trigger unhappiness to other residents. We as a 'Muslim' people always in a such way of tolerating with the other religious activities although sometimes it reaches up to the uneasiness level of life. For instance, if you noticed at the entrance of Jalan Bangau and Taman Tenaga, Puchong (there is a Petronas at the right hand side and a new completed apartment as well), up at the hill through the entrance, there is a Hindu temple which always every night making noises and loud bagging sound for the whole night until 12am. However, we as a 'Muslim' majority who are staying at that area feel that maybe it has to do with their important religious activities in fact we have been asked to be patient and calm with the situation and learn how to deal with it as it is part of our multi-religious country which respect each other’s religious activities. The point is, when we respect other religious activities to a certain extent, we do hope that it bounces back to us as we did. Life will be easier if you learn from the other racial's religion and culture by not being a 'selfish' community. I don't wanna offense others religious, I do seek an apology if my remarks sounded quite harsh but what I wanna clarify here is that it's just only an hour or maybe less of 'ceramah agama' with only voices as compared to the other religious which most of them probably use a lot of instruments and percussions that could really make your life totally miserable. If we as a Taman Tenaga resident can successfully managed to learn from the noises etc., we expect all of you to be considerate and start to consider and try to look down to other community that optimistically can learn and embrace with the situation in a civilise ways. So, I'd like to ask all 189 residents of Seksyen 5, Kinrara; if we put a Hindu temple there instead of the 'Masjid', which one do you prefer most? You already have the answer right? I bet with all my ridiculous salary that all of you won't even stand for more than 30 minutes. So, be considerate and please respect other religious activities as we respect yours...
MALAYSIAKINI ONLINE: Pengerusi Masjid Bandar Kinrara, yang menerima petisyen membantah penggunaan pembesar suara untuk beberapa kegiatan agama, bersetuju dengan tindakan kerajaan menggunakan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) ke atas exco kanan Selangor, Teresa Kok. Abdul Rahman Nasir berkata, secara umumnya, perkara sensitif membabitkan agama "tidak boleh dimainkan". "Perkara ini tidak boleh dimainkan. Terutama sekali di negeri Selangor ini, bukan saja (berkenaan) agama Islam, tetapi apa agama pun (tidak boleh dimainkan).
"Penahanan Teresa dipercayai mempunyai kaitan dengan petisyen sekumpulan 189 penduduk sekitar Seksyen 5, Bandar Kinrara yang meminta pihak masjid tersebut memperlahankan penggunaan pembesar suara untuk aktiviti keagamaannya. Perkara itu bagaimanapun dinafikan oleh Teresa, yang juga ahli parlimen Seputeh. Bercakap kepada Malaysiakini petang ini, Abdul Rahman bagaimanapun enggan memberikan komen lanjut berkenaan isu itu kerana pihaknya cuma sebagai penerima petisyen dan tidak tahu-menahu tentang perkara lain di sebalik isu itu.
Masyarakat Islam setempat pula, menurut Abdul Rahman tidak memberikan sebarang reaksi terhadap penahanan itu dan bertindak seperti biasa. "Kita tidak ada apa. Sudah lama dah masjid ini dibina. Itulah, persoalannya, kenapa sekarang? Kalau tidak puas hati, pindahlah. "Dari dulu lagi waktu hendak beli rumah, pelannya sudah ada, sini masjid, sini taman permainan. Kenapa dulu beli di sini?" katanya. Selain Teresa, pengendali blog Malaysia Today Raja Petra Kamaruddin dan wartawan Sin Chew Daily Tan Hoon Cheng turut ditahan di bawah akta kontroversi itu, Jumaat lalu.Tan bagaimanapun dibebaskan sehari selepas itu.
