For example, those occasions and events in history which caused division among Muslims should serve as a warning against division and (if rightly understood) should not further divide the Muslims. But this is precisely what those events do – defeating the very purpose of history. There are signposts in history which warn in big red letters not to go in a certain direction. But we make sure that we certainly move in that very direction. We remember the minute details of a historical event but forget the very lesson that we were supposed to learn from it. It is like reading “Deep Excavations Ahead” and falling blindly precisely in the same excavations.
In law, standing or locus standi is the term for the ability of a party to demonstrate to the court sufficient connection to and harm from the law or action challenged to support that party’s participation in the case. In the United States, the current doctrine is that a person cannot bring a suit challenging the constitutionality of a law unless the plaintiff can demonstrate that the plaintiff is (or will imminently be) harmed by the law. Otherwise, the court will rule that the plaintiff “lacks standing” to bring the suit, and will dismiss the case without considering the merits of the claim of unconstitutionality. To have a court declare a law unconstitutional, there must be a valid reason for the lawsuit. The party suing must have something to lose in order to sue unless it has automatic standing by action of law.

(Bernama) — PAS Youth urged DAP chairman Karpal Singh to show respect for the Islamic perspective on Valentine’s Day.
Its deputy chief, Nik Mohamed Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz, said the party’s statements on Valentine’s Day have been directed specifically at Muslims.
“When we (PAS) advise Muslims, the advice is not meant for people of other religions.
“Issues of morality differ whereby, in Islam, not only is adultery immoral but also close proximity of (unmarried) couples,” he told reporters.
Karpal Singh urged PAS last Saturday to withdraw a statement it had made against observing Valentine’s Day.related article
Malaysian Muslim party: ‘Hudud law is nothing for you infidels to worry about’
KOTA BARU: PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has hit out at DAP for making a fuss about the hudud issue “when the party has nothing to do with Islam”.
“I really do not know why everyone who has nothing to do with hudud is so scared as if they have seen a ghost.
“DAP has nothing to do with Islam and I want to know its reasons why it wants to leave Pakatan Rakyat,” he told reporters at his residence at Pulau Melaka here yesterday.
He was asked to comment on press reports quoting DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng as threatening the mass resignation of the DAP leadership from the Pakatan council if the Islamic state agenda is included in the group’s election manifesto.
Nik Aziz, who is the Kelantan Mentri Besar, reiterated that hudud law had nothing to do with non-Muslims and they should not be unduly worried.
When asked to comment on the move to include hudud in the lists of Syariah punishments, Nik Aziz said this would be at the pleasure of the Sultan of Kelantan.
The Muslims, whether of PAS, UMNO or some other political party, whether Malaysian or otherwise, can be counted to keep reciting from the same script over and over: relax, infidels, do not fear Islam and go back to sleep. But if Islam is so ‘noble and pure‘ and what-have-you, then why would those ungrateful kufr have to be continuously reassured as to Islam’s intentions in the first place? Perhaps because Islam is not so benign after all?
