You see somehow yoka has got to be the top business of the day. The world is facing a major financial crises, what do they do, ban yoka. Prior to ban, yoga was going nowhere, now secret societys of yoga fanatics are spreading like wild fire. The golden rule if you want to make it popular, ban it. We all know that what you cannot have, you want more, even if you did not want it in first place.Now what are the accident figures for chanting? There you are driving along the road, and one of those signs is flashing, ” you have been chanting for two miles, cut it out mate”. How do they know you are chanting? The same way they know when you are speeding, the guilty look on your face. So I know you want to know the answer, it is easy. Saterllite Navication, you will receive an alert when you enter a non yoka/chanting area and if you pay the extra charge you will also find diverted routes to avoid the pirates.

Crazy rules by ‘a few’ not only creates misunderstanding, creates rifts between the people and paints the wrong picture about the rest of the muslim guys who are very good people.

I am proud to be Malaysian. I have many friends who are muslim and some who do practice yoga. What is the incidence of people converting out of Islam by practising yoga. Perhaps the’fatwa’ organisation should consider studying this, and make up better rules, like being good, doing good etc…..think!

Muslims will not easily influenced to change the religion just by learning Yoga.
They should concern more on serious problems such as gambling, drug abuse, teenages problem (poor understanding in Islam and moral as well) which will brings more problem to Muslim as well as the public and country.
