Taib Islamic Fashion Show

Taib Islamic Fashion Show

A recent ‘Islamic Fashion Show’, staged in the gambling tax haven of Monaco, is being hammered by Muslim clerics, not just for encouraging a lack of modesty in apparel, but for the flaunting of obscene wealth by the Malaysian organisers and guests, who enjoyed a lavish party in the name of charity.

The guests included Sarawak Chief Minister, Abdul Taib Mahmud and many of the glittering and bejewelled female members of his own family. These will have all doubtless have attended for free. On the other hand, the businessmen, who were arm-twisted into supporting the event, are said to have had to pay a RM1 million donation!

An Example from our ‘First Family’?

Now Sarawak Report has come into possession of a series of photographs of Sarawak’s ‘First Family’ that may very well send the Muslim clerics into a state of shock. It seems that the sisters, daughters and nieces of our Chief Minister are by no means the sober, modest exemplars of Muslim womanhood in the way that they expect others to behave.

To the contrary, while by day Taib’s women present themselves as international company directors and top businesswomen, come party-time we find them flaunting themselves in low-cut dresses and lewd poses, which would put most normal women to shame. Sarawak Report has no wish to impose any form of dress or behaviour on modern women. However, we do suggest that BN’s Muslim moralisers should live up to their own strictures in a country where women can be severely punished for drinking in public or behaving lewdly.

In a recent judgement, posted on our comment section by one of our readers, the respected Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin states:

 ”The governance of the country will be ruined if the wives of leaders ‘portray’ themselves carelessly and without given much thought to the consequences. Such actions will ruin the leadership of the country which has a muslim majority”.

We assume his judgement will extend to sisters, wives, daughters and nieces?  These are the Taibs own pictures. These women posed for them and then posted them up on Facebook. We think that the people of Sarawak, not just their hundreds of facebook friends, should be entitled to see them and come to their own conclusions.

    Those kids really enjoy themselves with all the money and wealth their parents plunder from Sarawak..make me feel really sick and disgusted thinking of natives Sarawakian still suffering under Taib regime!!

  • emperor

    Taib's family display themselves as pious Muslims with Late wife working for Islamic cause. Taib himself always talk so much about Islam. Now, what happen to the family?

    If we pay too much importance to worldly affairs religion will not be with us. It's difficult to be blessed with barakah if we are too greedy and didnt practice what we preach.

  • najibrazak

    I suppose he has o spend some of his illegal gains on keeping his women in clothes, jewels, drink and whatever else they want. Otherwise they might be prepared to spill his beans. Pity that real well behaved Sarawak women and young girls should be offended by the public showing of such things. Maybe he was stupid enough to think that what happens in gambling hell Monaco stays there. Think again Your Highness; or ask your bomohs.

    • Elena

      Well nothing is so surprise the way the Malay girls dressing. I live in KL so many Malay girls are showing off their boop, top class GRO, and Zouk stripless dancer and even cheap prostitute. According to the taxi driver which I interviewed some of them offer discount RM15 service. Malay in Malaysia are insecure about their religion.

      Regards

      • Victor Lye

        well, they are human after all…whether malay or otherwise…why cant we let them enjoy themselves…show the nation the way to enjoy and put away the kill joys ..jais…etc…abolish them…as i know all are doing it

  • dewa.badai

    Although I am also feel meluat tengok pembaziran keluarga Taib ini, BUT I need to correct the fact that, Christian is not an official religion for State of Sarawak OK, don't just simply create something from the air.

    • Christopher

      I agree with you that sarawak is not a christian state, neither it is an islamic state!! Islam is the official religion of the federation of Malaysia but not the official religion of the state of Sarawak! So, that means Sarawak never ever have no official religion as everyone are free to practice their religion without any restriction! Please do some checking on the terms of negotation which was done in black & white before sarawak ever join forces with sabah, malaya n singapore to form the federation.(you can find that in the state archives). Good luck to you to better understand the very non-distorted history of sarawak. Cheers.

      • Anti Politic Of Dibo

        Totally agree with you bro.!! That is one of the reason why the government of the day decided to make History SPM as a compulsory subject. They want to HOOKWINK our young generation !!! These people are desperate that even the future of our youngsters are in jeopardy.

    • Christopher

      Correction:

      • san tet

        But then again Sarawak is part of Malaysia. And I don't think Christians will allow this type fashion show either.

    Kenyataan Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin

    Mengenai Islamic Fashion Festival (IFF)

    Saya berada di Qatar ketika ini. Pihak media bertalu-talu menghubungi saya bertanya pendapat tentang hal ini. Maka, saya ingin menyebut secara ringkas beberapa perkara berikut;

    1. Berdasarkan apa yang ditonjol, jelas bahawa mengaitkan fesyen-fesyen tersebut dengan Islam adalah satu penghinaan. Sama sekali ia tidak islamik. Penganjur amat salah jika menyangka Islamic design dan Islamic fashion hanya berkaitan dengan penonjolan tulisan yang berunsur Islamik tanpa memahami soal etika dan hukum-hakam syarak.

    2. IFF boleh memberikan gambaran salah yang serius mengenai pakaian dalam Islam. Ia juga melambang kecelaruan fikiran mereka yang terlibat.

    3. Islam tidak menghalang fesyen untuk wanita, tetapi mesti dengan prinsip dan etika yang tersendiri. Penganjuran fesyen pakaian itu tidak salah, tetapi konsep dan pengisiannya IFF itu salah disebabkan tidak memahami prinsip dan etika dalam hal ini.

    4. Mereka yang terlibat hendaklah memohon maaf kepada umat Islam dan mengisytiharkan kepada awam bahawa yang dianjurkan itu bukanlah ‘Islamik’.

    5. Bahaya untuk isteri pemimpin utama negara Islam terlibat dengan hal-hal yang seperti ini. Ia akan memberikan mesej Islam yang salah kepada dunia, apatah lagi Malaysia dianggap salah sebuah negara Islam yang penting.

    6. Kepimpinan negara akan rosak jika isteri-isteri pemimpin utama ini cuba menonjolkan diri sehingga tidak teliti dan tidak lagi memikir buruk baik sesuatu tindakan. Perbuatan seperti ini akan merosakkan kepimpinan sesebuah negara yang majoritinya muslim.

    7. Saya mencadangkan kepada mereka yang berminat menganjurkan pertunjukan ‘Islamic fashion’ mewujudkan penasihat syariah terlebih dahulu. Mereka boleh menjemput ilmuwan yang lebih terbuka dan fleksibel tetapi mengikut prinsip-prinsip umum syarak.

    -Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin, Doha, Qatar

    • tagas

      Doc. Taib mana ada pakai penasihat syariah…dia tak pecaya smua tu…dia lebih pakai cakap bomoh…impot lagi tu..

    • tagas

      "Bahaya untuk isteri pemimpin utama negara Islam terlibat dengan hal-hal yang seperti ini." – takpa doc…Taib bukan pemimpin negara Islam pon…toksah risau…

    • azizoghekapung

      Tak payah dapat nasihat dari mana-mana. Perkara ini semua adalah basic sangat. Puncanya apabila mentekedarah duit haram selama berpuluh2 tahun hati mereka jadi legam. Itu sahaja. Bukan hanya seketul daging sahaja yang jadi dari hasil haram, tetapi sekujur badan.

  • translator

    The fact Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin

    Regarding the Islamic Fashion Festival (IFF)

    I was in Qatar when this. The media pounding contacted me to ask an opinion about this. So, I want to mention briefly some of the following cases;

    1. Based on what ditonjol, clear that the fashion-fashion associate it with Islam is an insult. He is absolutely not Islamic. Very wrong to advocate Islamic thought and Islamic fashion design deals only with protrusion of the element Islamic writings without understanding about ethics and the law-Hakam syarak.

    2. IFF may give an idea of who are serious about clothing in Islam. He also symbolized kecelaruan minds of those involved.

    3. Islam does not hold up fashion for women, but must by its own principles and ethics. Recommendation of fashion clothing was not wrong, but the concept and filling it wrong IFF caused not understand the principles and ethics in this regard.

    4. Those involved should apologize to Muslims and mengisytiharkan to which recommended that unlicensed layman it is not 'Islamic'.

    5. The danger to the wife the principal leaders of Islamic countries are involved with things like this. He will give a message to the world of Islam is wrong, how much more Malaysia is considered one of an important Islamic state.

    6. State leadership will rosak if the wives of key leaders are trying a low profile so as not thoroughly and no longer think of either something bad action. Actions like this will merosakkan leadership majoritinya sesebuah Muslim countries.

    7. I reserve to encourage those interested in the show 'Islamic fashion' bring sharia adviser first. They may pick up the scientists who are more open and flexible but follow the general principles syarak.

      Dear Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin, lay off. People should have the freedom to do stuff they want and like – just so long it does not threaten life and limb of others.

      Your statements shows that you are a bigot and do not know it – shame !

      Stop stuffing your lunatic fringe Islamic diktats on others. This gives Islam a bad name, comprehend ?

      Now be a good man and enjoy life.

  • Steven

    Its another form of Islam that they believed in as there are many sects and denomination of Muslims in the world. Nothing to protest unless one is trying to force his version of Islam on others.

  • Ed

    Well, thanks to the natives of Sarawak for giving them the 'Heaven on Earth'.

    • tagas

      …and the ordinary rakyat get their hell on earth…

  • Sabahan

    look, i think this is below the belt.

    u attack the politicians, fine – they deserve it. but spare the children (UNLESS they r also guilty of plundering the state/country).

    yeah, they spend the money, i know, but morally, there is a distinction between the thief and the thief's children.

    let them have some privacy.

    having said that, i think most of the taib family's children r very ugly. (the author has not identified who r those good-looking ones.) to those men who married these rich spoilt kids –

    show some pride, pals.

    • rastaman

      You said they deserve their own privacy (which is moral-high-groundly correct) and then Taib's children are ugly within the same breath?

      • Sabahan

        1. i think using someone's children as a way to attack THAT person is unacceptable. u cheer bcos u r taib's enemy, but it can harm good people too.

        bottom line: children r OFF LIMIT from political attacks, period. let's make it an ABSOLUTE rule. why is that important? bcos let's assume that u r a good, clean n capable person who wants to enter politics. but if u know that ur children will be attacked by your ENEMIES, u might hesitate.

        but on the other hand, if u make it an ABSOLUTE rule to NEVER attack the politicians' children, regardless of our views about a particular politician, then i think at least, we wont deter those who want privacy for their family.

        2. u mean, whether u r good looking or not is 'private'?? well, i agree IF u live in saudi arabia or if the law makes u wear a burqa…

        a comment on how u look has something to do with privacy? that's the first time i heard.

        question: how is their look (ugly or beautiful) POLITICAL?

        mind u, i didnt comment on how ugly they r BCOS OF taib. i'm just making a comment like i would, when i come across some thanks-but-no-thanks gals on facebook WHO DELIBERATELY FLAUNT THEIR APPEARANCE, i.e. THINKING that they r pretty…

        the difference is – if they r not taib's children, u WONT attack/get angry at their luxurious lifestyles n display of sexiness. (in fact, guys would CHEER them on!!)

        but taib or no taib, i would still say they r ugly…

        that's the difference between u n me. i guess.

    • ibat

      the thief's children are spending the thief's money, which they know fully well is stolen money. They are adult, educated, and have no excuse if they didn't know that. They even look like they are enjoying the money without any sense of guilt – they know most of sarawak is still poor. For that I am willing to hit lower than below the belt.

  • sarawak

    I wish to watch taib family make another nude fashion show

  • Zulkarnain Kahfi

    Remember the three wise monkeys?

    See no evil.

    Hear no evil.

    Speak no evil.

    Those three monkeys were definitely wise!

    Practice it. It has incredible results.

    i think this article should b forward 2 utusan for review because their pro-malay writer(i think that dungu name is awang) write about Taib cm sarawak has record yang cemerlang and pandai tadbir negeri in his article..

  • Shankar

    What's the difference between you and the guy who published Liz Wong's pics. The end does not justify the means. These are personal photographs and you have violated their privacy. Our cause is just, but things like this taint the cause. Are we better than them?

    THATS WHY SARAWAK GOT A BAD REPUTATION OR EXPRESSION OVERSEA..THIS IS ONE OF EXAMPLE

    AMPLE SARAWAK BOSOMS ON SHOW

    What is most noticeable are their ample bosoms on show! Voila! Not sexist just stating the fact as shown in the photo….

    You should send the photos to the fake Muslims of PERKASA which is the self-appointed spokesbody of Islam.

    This should send the loonies into a spin….they might starting frothing in their mouths triggered off this disgraceful exhibition!

    Will they go after Taib for his shameless lack of discipline over his girls since he was there in Monaco ha?

    Anyway these gals are only innocently enjoying themselves while the Sebangan people and the Penans are tying to survive the latest raid by Taib's pirate-cronies on their land.

    They may not even have heard that UMNO PBB BN just solved the Sibu flood problem by turning off the tap on the Rajang which has now almost dried up. Or the log jam before that…

    The whole country is almost aflamed with the people's anger and cries for justice and freedom.

    They might be too high to worry about such things ….

  • antitaip

    taibs family must pay back to all sarawakians. plundering sarawak then showing off like dumb sluts. tak tau malu. please rot in hell!

  • Moin

    Ferdinand Marcos of Philippines was a classic example of a president turned plunderer of his own nation, but finally subdued by people power! The end result for such rulers had always been one of destructive in nature-history will attest to it! We are helpless individually to bring down an evil force that has been in power for too long-only the rakyat has the power to topple and bring changes that we were waiting thus long.Only the rakyat and no one else. People Power!

  • b______o

    Something needs to be done. This man and his family have plundered my State, and your State for years. But he continues to be voted into power, time and time again….

    If we can just empower all of our State's citizens with this knowledge and how he has ripped everyone off, he'll be gone for good, and have his assets stripped back for our state.

    Seriously, have u seen the state of the Kuching GH.

    Appalling.
