Increasingly religion has been prostituted by politicians to buy some cheap votes. They have partnered with some Islamic personalities to auction off religious values at the altar of political expediency. The recent comments by the learned ex-Chief Justice of Malaysia was indeed accurate description of this malady. I for one firmly believe that it is necessary to keep religion out of politics otherwise it will be dirtied by dirty politicians who are willing to sell of even Allah that they can't defend His Holiness. On the other hand those who see a role for religion in politics are not wrong either because they want to clean the dirt within politics. This requires strong courage and unflinching moral character. I do not find anyone measuring up to this. Should we wait for that somebody or should we continue to allow such abuse of religion? What do you think?
