Sorry laa..but working on Saturdays mmg buat aku emo sikit. Although I have tons of stuffs to finish but I just can't help but say what's on my mind (lately it's not often I feel like I want to say something about anything).
I was introduced to this blog, The Yoga Instructor Diaries [Click here to view blog] by my friend and I think it's amazing that she has such great passion for yoga and it shows in her physique and the stuffs she's done to promote yoga.
Did you guys know that there's a new fatwa BANNING muslims from practicing yoga?? *sorry aku lagging..dah lame tak bace surat khabar..:P* WTF?????????? I'm sorry laa but I seriously think that these JAKIM ppl truly lives under a coconut shell and have nothing else to do! Pasal ape nak ban Yoga? Ok..pardon my facts about yoga coz I am no expert about it but I do know that yoga is a form of exercise and meditation and is a very good form to release stress. Yes it might have originated from spiritual practices and perhaps even have religious (not islam laa) elements in it. But yoga has been commercialized that the way it is being practiced today is mainly JUST as a form of exercise.
Orang2 JAKIM ni cetek sungguh ke pemikiran diorg?Do they even KNOW how yoga is being practiced???How the hell did they come to the conclusion sampai nak keluarkan fatwa ban Yoga???
What???they're not getting any from their wives at home ke sampai boleh aroused tgk perempuan in their yoga outfits doing yoga?ke stress sbb bini kat rumah tak flexible mcm yoga practicioners so aktiviti kelamin kat rumah dah tak exciting?????Then the solution should be to SEND their wives for yoga classes instead of banning yoga man!!
If the issue is because the women are wearing skimpy outfits while stretching their bodies in positions that deem arousing (to them!)..then suggest segregation, women only yoga sessions..conducted by a female yoga instructor..not BAN the whole thing altogether..
and like the blogger I'm referring to said in one of her open letter to the media..pegi tgk sendiri tempat2 yang org buat yoga tu...if the way they are teaching yoga has religious elements like chanting in sanskrit or hymns (word usage?sorry aa) then only allow non-muslims to go there. But places like commercial fitness centres kalo tak silap aku takde those kind of chants or hymns...just stretching and breathing methods je.
Bodoh laaa diorg ni...nak buat fatwa..tapi taknak kaji betul2 dulu sebelum keluarkan fatwa..tanak buat research betul2..tanak argue the issue and take into consideration ALL the pros n cons of doing yoga BASED ON FACTS and not just stupid assumptions. Bukan nak tgk issue tu from different perspectives..bukan nak BUKAK MINDA tu! dah biasa sgt semua bende kene suap masuk mulut sampai tuhan kasi otak tanak pikir habis2.
again I blame our educational system...sbb too academic oriented..too exam oriented..never encouraging students to research, explore, argue about things..stok dok dalam kelas, hafal sebijik2 apa yang ada dalam buku not allowing the students to ask "WHY?" sbb the teachers themselves tak reti nak explain why (or even worse they don't even know why themselves) and end up saying "Because it says so in the book" and cut off the child from saying another word...
also i blame our culture......yes..there are parts of our culture yang I am proud of like adab and sopan santun kita...banyak lagila..tapi our culture jugak sekat kita from being curious.bile curious about something different but may be beneficial, bukan nak galakkan perasaan-ingin-tahu tu..sbb takut nnt org mengata sbb lain dari yang lain so we end up being ignorant about important stuffs, killed our chance of opening our eyes and minds to something new..TAPI bila bab nak mengata hal personal orang lain..CHAMPION lah!SEMUA benda tau...sampai apa mak mentua punya adik punya laki punya sepupu cakap pun kita tau...
orang Malaysia suka nak jadi bodoh..sorry la..aku pun orang Malaysia juga..tapi aku rasa aku tak suka jadi bodoh.Gosip2 yang tak berasas ni aku malas nak campur...
Kalau JAKIM takde keje sangat kat sana..kenape tak keluar fatwa BAN magazine mcm URTV or MEDIA or MANGGA from artis2 lelaki buat sesi fotografi kat tepi swimming pool tak pakai baju?????Itu tanak cakap ape2 pulak....(walaupun sebenarnya tak meng'GHAIRAH'kan langsung...sbb tu tak ban kot...)
