The State Has No Role in Policing Morality

Special Feature: The State Has No Role in Policing Morality A joint statement by the undersigned It has become apparent in the past few months that we, as Malaysians, can no longer afford to remain silent over the increasing role of the state in policing the morality of its citizens. The arrest of a transgender in the garden of a friend's house by religious authorities in Taiping (The Star, March 2, 2005, p12); the Malacca Belia 4-B campaign to spy on young people under the pretext of controlling morality (, February 22, 2005); and the JAWI raid on a Kuala Lumpur nightclub and subsequent detention and humiliation of approximately 100 Muslim youth (Sunday Mail, Jan 23, 2005, p1) are unfortunate incidents that demonstrate how moral policing violates the personal dignity of humans and their rights as citizens. We question the state's role in defining and controlling the morality of its citizens and its use of punitive religious and municipal laws. Forced and fearful compliance with such laws results not in a more moral society but a mass of terrified, submissive and hypocritical subjects. We are concerned that when religion is so much part of the political arena, it increases the state's inclination to police the private lives of its citizens. Given the multi-religious and multi-ethnic composition of our society, any attempt to regulate a person's conscience, faith or private life has grave implications for all citizens and communities, as well as the relationships between communities. The use of state instruments such as the police, religious and Rela officers to control morality is nothing new. The use of Muslim youth to spy on other Muslims, however, is unprecedented. It violates not only Qur'anic injunctions but also common standards of community trust. Further, it invites vigilantism. Reported plans to rope in non-Muslim youth to spy on non-Muslim couples indicate how quickly such invasive and authoritarian policies can affect Malaysians. We are against the use of these state instruments, and the individuals and groups enlisted as their surrogates, to regulate morality. How people dress and where, how and with whom they socialise are personal choices. The outcry following the nightclub raid and detention of some 100 Muslim patrons by JAWI officers recently and the case of a couple booked by City Hall enforcement officers for holding hands at the KLCC park in August 2003 indicates the Malaysian public's concern over the issue. In the past, many similar incidents went unreported because those who were charged pleaded guilty without legal representation for fear of the shame and discrimination of a prolonged public trial. It is clear that public opinion has changed, and that laws must be changed to reflect our increasingly open and progressive society. Any law that attempts to regulate a citizen's life to the smallest detail has far-reaching consequences to the point that it becomes unjust and unenforceable. The vague provisions of such laws leave them wide open to interpretation and abuse by enforcement officers, which can lead to selective prosecution and victimisation, usually on those from a marginalised class, gender and/or community. The responsibility of the Government is to uphold and protect the rights of its citizens to justice, equality, freedom and dignity at all times. In the spirit of our democratic and pluralistic society, we the undersigned affirm that morality is a matter best dealt with by individuals and their families, and we call for: a) The repeal of provisions in religious and municipal laws that deny citizens their fundamental right to privacy, freedom of speech and expression, and those that overlap with the federal Penal Code; b) The appointment of a committee to monitor the process of repealing these laws, including representation from women's groups, human rights groups, civil society organizations, progressive religious scholars and constitutional experts; c) The strengthening of our pluralism through community dialogue around morals in our society, rather than the divisiveness bred by sub-contracting of moral policing and neighbours spying on neighbours. In response to the increasing actions by the State in policing the morality of its citizens, a few concerned non-government organizations (NGOs) circulated a joint statement which has been endorsed by approximately 40NGOs and 160 individuals (with more endorsements coming in). We are calling for a press conference (followed by a planning meeting ) on this matter and would like to invite you to the event. We would appreciate it if you can forward this release to other members of the press too. The details of the press conference are as follows: Date : 22 March, 2005 (Tuesday) Time : 10am - 11am (followed by planning meeting 11-12.30pm) Venue: Pearl International Hotel, Batu 5, Jalan Klang Lama, 58000 Kuala Lumpur. Endorsed by Organisations: All Women's Action Society (AWAM) Malaysian AIDS Council Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) Metal Industry Employees Union National Human Rights Society (HAKAM) Persatuan Ibu Tunggal Mutiara Sisters in Islam (SIS) Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM) Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) Women's Candidacy Initiative Women's Development Collective (WDC) ALIRAN Forum Iqra Knowledge and Rights with Young people through Safer Spaces (KRYSS) Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) MALVU Metal Industry Employees Union REFSA Save Ourselves (SOS) Society for Christian Reflection and many manmy more individuals, Ministers, MP's, companies. You are welcomed to leave your name in the comment box for us to pass it along. We are looking for corporate or private sponsors to assist Human Rights Society in printing handy information cards on your human rights and what to do in cases of enforcement raids for everyone.

All Collections at Nouvo KL :) Press Release 9th March Fans of major acts like Black Eyed Peas, Boyz II Men and Backstreet Boys will have the chance to catch them in concert and at the same time help rebuild countries affected by the Dec 26 tsunami. The Force of Nature concert, to be held on March 18 at Stadium Putra in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, will include major local performers and artistes from Hong Kong, India, China and the United States. The Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Tsunami Disaster Aid and Assistance Tan Sri Razali Ismail said the event would be broadcast live with the help of media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. Event organiser, the newly launched Force of Nature Foundation, hopes to raise RM10mil from the concert, he said at a press conference at the TV3 headquarters in Sri Pentas. Razali said he hoped Malaysians would support the event even though they had earlier donated generously to tsunami victims. He added that they hoped to fill the 80,000-capacity stadium and that ticket prices and ticketing locations would be determined in a week's time. The foundation, launched at the media briefing yesterday, is a fund-raising vehicle which comprises private organisations and individuals from here and abroad. The foundation will provide assistance to tsunami victims and to victims of other natural disasters. Razali, who is also the foundation's special ambassador, added that prominent Malaysians like Datuk Michelle Yeoh were among its members. Press Release 7th March Backstreet Boys, Black Eyed Peas and other international acts are hoping their music can help soothe the trauma of the Dec 26 Tsunami when they gather for a "Force of Nature" charity concert in Malaysia this month. "If we can lend our music to a situation something of this nature, to bring a relief to the situation, we'll always do that," said Wanya Morris of the Grammy-winning R&B quartet Boyz II Men, one of the bands that will perform in Kuala Lumpur on March 18. The Force of Nature Concert for Tsunami Aid is the first initiative of a nonprofit organization in Kuala Lumpur dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the victims of natural disasters, spearheaded by former Malaysian diplomat Razali Ismail, the country's tsunami envoy. Proceeds will go toward rebuilding communities devastated by the tsunami in Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India. A total of 173,041 to 182,340 people died in 11 countries, most of them in Indonesia. The number of missing ranges from 107,985 to 129,897. Some 60,000 children were orphaned. Joining Boyz II Men are Black Eyed Peas, boy band Backstreet Boys, and Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean, former members of hip-hop trio the Fugees. "When you see something like that (tsunami) happen, that is just incomprehensible. You want to definitely do anything you can possibly to raise money to even just lift people's spirits up and make them happy again," said Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys. A transcript of the comments of the artists made in a promotional video taped Thursday was sent to The Associated Press on Friday. The videotapes were distributed to television stations worldwide (As seen on Astro). "The relief part of it is done. But now comes the hard part with the reconstruction and redevelopment. It's also trying to heal these deep wounds they have undergone; to overcome the trauma," Razali said, speaking on the videotape. For posting of previous press release, click here.

A Stellar Sold Out Event – Recharge@Zoukfest

A Post Event write up on ZoukFest at Genting Highlands The promise of a mind liberating experience combined with the energy and vibe of the celebration while uniting the power of music at Recharge @ Zoukfest has become a vision come true. Living up to the promise of presenting an unforgettable outdoor experience in the cool and refreshing highlands of Genting, Zoukfest opened its gates and welcomed an entire platoon of excited clubbers by the thousands. Spanning a broad spectrum of style, ambience & genres, Zoukfest proudly brings Zouk Mainroom, Ghetto Heaven & Velvet Underground away from the smog of the city, and into the clouds up in the highlands. Driving up the winding steep road to the First World Hotel Bus Terminal with only one thing in mind… to party! While it was invigorating to breakaway from KL city’s congestion, the thick fog and strong winds, plus a slight drizzle at the beginning of the night set droplets of water which sent chills across the skin of partygoers… but none to dampen the spirit of partying. Whetting the appetite of a sold out crowd totaling to 16,000 pax, party animals from all over the region turned up in anticipation of a top notch festival. The three arenas – Zouk Main Arena, Velvet Underground Arena and Ghetto Heaven Arena featuring Hip-Hop and R&B beats (the first for a Malaysian outdoor festival!) showcased amazing light and laser shows plus twisted fringe performances. Drawing crowds from around the region, partygoers feasted their auditory & optical senses to a wide array of international DJ’s supported by our Zouk ressies and local artistes. The Zouk Main Arena kicked off at 7pm with our very own Fono, followed by RaySoo pumping the decks at 8.15pm, who warmed up for Mr. C who rocked the early crowd at 9.30pm. Futureshock defied gravitational forces at 11pm, while raising the pulses skywards on the dance floor that was packing up. When Way Out West started at 12.30am, Omi’s vocals shone with Nick Warren and Jodi Wisternoff behind the decks. At precisely 2.30am, Filterheadz took over and rocked the crowd wild. The highly interactive duo made their presence felt while the appreciative party goers cheered them on. Simultaneously, the Ghetto Heaven Arena pioneering the first outdoor hip-hop & R&B party in Malaysia started with Australian DJ’s Fluke & Simon Sez at 7pm. Joining forces while pumping up the crowd is Zouk’s very own Ghetto Heaven resident DJ T-Bone behind the decks together with Joe Flizzow of Too Phat showcasing his vocal talents on live PA at 9pm. By 11pm, Goldfish claimed his throne of the decks with his selection, while Crazy Carleed took over the mic with his vocal skills. At 1am, Deadly Avenger’s proved his fearsome reputation on the turntables by bringing up the notches. Cut La Roc’s set wowed the crowd starting 2.30am and sent them into a massive dancing frenzy with party stoking anthems all the way til 4.15am. By then, Goldfish & T-Bone popped up a surprise by playing back to back for the already elated groove enthusiasts. Standing majestically perched exclusively on the helipad, the Velvet Underground Arena presented a jaw dropping optical feast for the eyes. With resident DJ Shazz warming up the crowd at 8pm, our very own Leonard T then charmed them with his selection at 9pm. Velvet Underground’s ressie DJ Gabriel teamed up with vocalist, songwriter and producer Haze for a combined taskforce which mesmerized everyone that lasted until a half hour before midnight. By then, the crowd was hyped up for Jon Cutler who played the decks with his careful selection of quality house music. Hardsoul picked up the pace at 1am til ATFC took over at 2.30am. DJ Gabriel reigned the decks again starting 4am til closing. While all the main arenas served a concoction of soul grooving tunes, fringe performers further entertained with mind boggling costumes & non-stop interaction with the crowd. A wide array of sumptuous stalls offering fresh and warm mouth watering food whetted the appetite of many. The Recharge Spa offered the cure to aching feet and muscles with massages and holistic therapies. The overwhelming vibe and energy at Zoukfest 05 lives on, and many experiential journeys will continue through the years. The passion for party, music and life injects soul to the Zouk experience. See you next year.
