It was "nice" to see Kumpulan Tindakan Bersama untuk Persamaan Jantina (JAG) piling up the streets to demand Bung Mokhtar Radin resign from all his posts for the cruel and intolerable offence of entering into a polygamous marriage without the consent of court and registrar.
This is done because YB Bung Mokhtar is setting a bad influence to the people of Malaysia, especially the Muslims. It doesnn't really matter if it is lawful in the eyes of Islam because the act is really a bad one...wait, aren't they a movement for gender equality? Which of the gender got shortchanged?
At the same time, we're not sure why JAG never turned up in drives to demand severe punishments to those irresponsible couples who discards the result of their horny acts of unification. Well, we'd guess that maybe the couples' action will never set a bad example for anybody.
It's bad enough to have the Islamic institute of marriage and polygamy severely attacked and damaged in its ideology by anti-Islam snipers for the past hundreds of years. The result of that? Polygamy, no matter how fair and closely you follow to the letter of the syaria, is uaually looked upon like a pariah by the western "civilization" and the secular muslims. It's quite strange to see that a man with a mistress, or a woman with her "boy-toy" is regarded as a measure of lifelong success.
Making things worse are male Muslims who takes another wife, stating that it's the Sunnah of the Prophet, when they themselves have no basic fundamentals of the acts of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) himself. They then plunge themselves into a spiralling moral disaster when favouritism kicks in, well, you might read this in papers, where 1st or 2nd wife complaints of neglect in physical and psychological means by the husband.
Of course, we're talking about the institution of marriage here, wose still would be the unmarried couples with raging hormones who couldn't keep their pants up. How many babies do we have to witness dumped? Want gender equalities, go and ensure and educate both sexes so that they know what to do and/or avoid when they start their teens. Abstain is the best, but of course, the non-Muslim will say that this is ridiculous. Why don't we stick to Islamic teachings? Most cases of dumped infants are Malays/Muslims.
Maaysia is under attack; we look forward to unity and integration, but opposition is always instructed to divide and demolish that. Islam is being attacked as well, I wonder if this is part of it...nope, too fickle!!! Anwar and the one-eyed have bigger fish to fry.
Talk about looking only with one eye...
Note: As an update: (The Star Online)

(Also, I would love to show pictures of discarded babies to strengthen my points, but I don't have the heart even to see it on screen...)
