Melayu Bela 50 Anjing

Betui ka tidak disebut dalam Qur'an/Hadis anjing tu najis Tn Sheikh? Mintak pendapat/pandangan sikit..

 Dia telah membela 50 ekor anjing, menjadikan anjing sebahagian dari kehidupannya, membelanjakan banyak wang untuk mengimport anjing dari luar negara, membenarkan anjing menaiki kereta Mercedesnya; demi membela anjing, dia sanggup berpindah dari bandar ke kawasan terpencil. Tetapi setiap kali apabila dia membawa anjingnya keluar bersiar-siar, dia menarik perhatian ramai di kalangannya yang memandangnya aneh. Ini adalah kerana, dia orang Melayu. Tidak pantang, makin banyak anjing dibela MKI (Peniaga, 37 tahun) walaupun beragama Islam, tetapi dia bukan sahaja tiada pantang terhadap anjing, malah kian hari kian banyak anjing dibela. Sungguhpun ada orang yang berpendapat bahawa orang Muslim tidak boleh membela anjing, bahkan ada orang yang terus memakinya online, hacker yang mencerobohi blognya, dia masih berharap untuk menyampaikan satu mesej melalui perlakuannya – iaitu menghormati setiap satu nyawa!
 

 Tidak disebut membela anjing itu haram. “Sebenarnya dalam al-Quran tidak disebut bahawa orang Muslim tidak boleh membela anjing, anjing tidak dilihat sebagai najis, orang Muslim tidak ada pun larangan untuk membela anjing , orang Muslim di Arab Saudi dan negara China ada membela anjing, hanya disebabkan perbezaan antara mazhab-mazhab Islam, tambahan pula adat berlainan di Malaysia, ini menjadikan ramai tersalah sangka bahawa orang Islam tidak boleh membela anjing.” Ibubapa MKI telah mengajarnya sejak kecil untuk menghormati nyawa, tidak kira apa jenis makhluk pun ada nilai nyawanya, bahkan sejak kecil pun membenarkannya membela anjing. Oleh itu, pada pandangan MKI anjing merupakan kawan yang setia, dan akan selalu di sisi tuannya, tidak kira miskin atau kaya.
 

 “Saya ingat satu kali saya pulang ke rumah pada pukul 2 pagi, anjing saya masih di depan pintu rumah menunggu kepulangan saya, saya terasa amat terharu…”Walaupun ramai kawan Muslim enggan melangkah; kawan-kawan dan ahli keluarga menghormati hasratnya Beliau kata: “ada orang berpendapat perbuatan saya membela anjing adalah haram dalam Islam, saya tidak akan mendapat peliharaan malaikat, apabila mati saya tidak dapat masuk syurga. Berkaitan perkara ini saya telah pun meminta ajaran pengajar agama, beliau pun tidak dapat membuktikan al-Quran dan Sunnah ada menyebut tentang perkara ini.” “Saya tidak akan memaksa kawan-kawan menziarahi rumah saya, kerana saya menghormati pendirian mereka; sebaliknya kalau saya perlu mengurung anjing apabila mereka datang menziarahi, maaf, saya tidak akan berbuat demikian!”

 MKI beli tanah untuk menunaikan hasrat membina “rumah haiwan”. Disebabkan pengajaran ibu bapanya dan minatnya sejak kecil, MKI amat sayang terhadap benda bernyawa di alam semulajadi. Oleh itu, pembinaan “rumah haiwan” selama ini merupakan matlamat yang dikejarnya penuh semangat. Enam tahun lalu dia berada di sesuatu tempat berdekatan kaki bukit Tanah Tinggi Genting, Pahang dan membeli 2 ekar tanah, lalu menunaikan hasratnya yang bertahun-tahun lama. Di sini, binatang tersayang peliharaan MKI mempunyai ruang akitivi yang tidak terhad, jauh dari bisik-bisikan dan perbahasan, meneruskan kehidupan asli mereka dengan tenang.

Need for teachers’ code of conduct

 MY SON is in the afternoon school at Saint Xavier Cawangan (Branch) in Penang and I am puzzled at the way the teachers handle the students.

It has been two months since my son started school and it is traumatic for him every time he goes to school.

Students are required to wait at the school canteen to be taken by their teachers to their respective classes.

The person who normally supervises the whole process would be the senior assistant (SA).

The disturbing part is the manner the SA handles the children.

The SA without fail would scream and yell hysterically and wave a “rotan” at the children to get in line and be quiet.

If that is not enough, the SA would blow the whistle so loud, that for me as an adult, can be painful to the ears and very annoying.

At times, without hesitation the SA would use harsh words such as “you shut up”, “ I’ll give you a tight slap”, “babi”, “lembu”, “donkey” etc.

However, there are teachers that get my upmost admiration for knowing the right way and being tactful when dealing with the children, and the children listen and respect them.

Parents have spent a lot to send their children to pre-school/kindergarten to prepare them for formal education and I believe most of the children know what to expect.

But for my son and I this was not what we expected at Saint Xavier Cawangan in Penang.

I admit it is very difficult to handle children and that not all the children are well behaved. But for the SA to use a blanket method or way to handle the children was very disturbing.

I believe the Education Department should not only emphasise on the teachers academic teaching ability but also on their ability and skill to handle children in a civilised ways.

Teachers want to be respected by the children but children too need to be exposed to the proper and right environment by the teachers to earn their respect and not respect out of fear.

I, as parent and other parents too, have spent a lot of effort and time to educate our children since small to be courteous and respectful because we believe that social education is as important as an academic one.

Unfortunately, those efforts went down the drain, the minute my son stepped into school.

Most parents are against this but unfortunately no parent dares speak out for fear of their children’s safety and the repercussions of their action.

It would be appreciated if the Education Department can clarify as to the code of conduct of teachers when dealing with children and steps taken to monitor the teachers’ conduct at schools from time to time.

DISTURBED PARENT,

Penang.

Teachers should show more concern

KUDOS to the parent who wrote “Code of conduct for teachers” (The Star, Feb 28).

She had the guts to highlight this issue when most parents are afraid to speak up for fear that their children would be marked by teachers and picked on for every small mistake.

The secondary school in Shah Alam where my children are is no different.

The depression of being transferred to a new environment and the apprehension were made worse by the teachers in this particular school.

They were shouted at in the first week of school for not knowing what to do while waiting for assembly to start and many other things. All I can remember was that every time they came home, they were sad and crying.

New environment, no friends and tactless teachers.

It is no wonder that the number of depression cases among school children is on the rise.

A recent incident occured when one of the students, facing a family crisis who was being reprimanded for something small, burst out crying (due to tension and also the goings on at home).

The teacher just snapped at her for crying. When she explained that she had family problems all the teacher said was “All of us have family problems, you have to leave your problems at home when you come to school.”

Most of these teachers are inhumane and lack tact.

So why do we have school counsellors?

Counsellors in school are doing nothing and getting a free-pay for nothing. What a waste of the tax-payers money, they have nothing to contribute but they will apply to be the 'instructors/trainers' at PLKN camps and will act good. They can't even write a simple report by pupils or students and can't even have the guts to solve problems faced by their client and yet were given status of  Unit Head. 

My request is for the Education Ministry to have a code of conduct for teachers. And please send them for psychology training on ‘How to handle children’.

I used to admire my teachers but I resent my children’s teachers.

Respect goes both ways.

One can go to Facebook and see what the kids say of their teachers and all the curses these teachers receive.

I sincerely urge the ministry to have a channel where parents can voice their frustrations with teachers and the school system.

Please train these teachers before our children face a mental breakdown in school.

ANOTHER DISTURBED PARENT,

Shah Alam.
