Latest Whatsapp News Network (WNN) Updates

Postby Munawwir on Wed Dec 23, 2015 8:22 am

Someone thought I should create this thread. Makes sense, since a lot of rumours in Brunei spread via whatsapp.

So please share what you know here.

I'd start but my groups in whatsapp don't really have much going on in terms of rumours.

GO!

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (AFP) - Oil-rich Brunei has banned public viewing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for fear of Muslims being led astray, its religious affairs ministry said on Thursday, in a country that last year controversially instituted tough Islamic syariah penalties.
The ban, instituted after the world premier of the anticipated movie when local children and adults were seen wearing costumes "that resemble Darth Vader", raises fresh concerns of religious restrictions after last April's announcement of the introduction of a penal code that will eventually include penalties such as the severing of limbs and death by stoning.
A spokesman declined to comment directly on the ban, but referred to a Dec 27 statement in which the ministry said the act of publicly marking non-Islamic rituals or festivities "can be seen as propagations of religions other than Islam".
It noted in particular: "For example, in conjunction with Star Wars: The Force Awaken release, Muslim children, teenagers and adults can be seen wearing masks or costumes that resemble Darth Vader and Sand Troopers.
"Believers of other religions that live under the rule of an Islamic country - according to Islam - may practise their religion or celebrate their religious festivities among their community, with the condition that the celebrations are not disclosed or displayed publicly to Muslims," the statement said.
"Muslims should be careful not to follow celebrations such as these that are not in any way related to Islam... and could unknowingly damage the faith of Muslims."
"These enforcement measures are … intended to control the act of celebrating the release of a fictional movie excessively and openly, which could damage the aqidah (beliefs) of the Muslim community," the Ministry of Religious Affairs said in a statement explaining the edict that was published in the Brunei Times.
The statement said non-Muslims disclosing or displaying Star Wars decorations violated the penal code which prohibits propagating religion other than Islam to a Muslim.
The Borneo Bulletin quotes imams saying in a Friday sermon that dressing up as a Star Wars character, waving lightsabers, playing the theme of Star Wars songs, greetings of "forces be with you" are against the religious faith.
"Some may think that it is a frivolous matter and should not be brought up as an issue," the imams are quoted as saying.
The statement also said that businesses that publicly displayed Star Wars decorations were asked to take them down and had given their "full cooperation."
