During parliament discussion  yesterday, the Sports Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri has informed to all MP’s that FAM is having some financial crisis to fund all of the soccer tournaments.

As usuall, the Sri Gading MP, Dato’ Mohamad  Aziz, stood up to give his proposal to raise the fund supposed to help FAM.


He proposed to use the tax money from Tobacco Company to finance the sporting events especially soccer as no fatwa in the country saying that smoking is HARAM.

Well, well, well my dear outspoken MP. I believe from now on you should control your mouth from being too outspoken especially in the area where you are not specialised into such as soccer or religion.

As for your information, back in 2002, WHO and FIFA have signed a memorandum of understanding to remove all forms of tobacco from all soccer events associated with the sport’s world governing body, starting from the World Cup in Japan and South Korea, countries where the smoking habit is widespread.. (reuters)

Any intervention to FIFA rules by any government would be resulted to the suspension of the FAM itself by FIFA. This means our soccer team would not be allowed to compete in any FIFA members organised tournaments.

The same also goes for liquor and the like. FIFA gave some leniency to the existed agreement to complete with condition no renewal is allowed. As for our case the agreement already expired.

In short, do your study prior to being involved in a national discussion especially in the parliament. It’s a shame to have a MP that outspoken unnecessarily as such he is speaking at Kedai Kopi… shame on you !!!

Hi everyone,

This MP is only an empty vessel. The more he opens his mouth, the more he shows his ignorance.

Moreover, if one is true to his beliefs and religion, does one or he need a fatwa to regulate his daily life. No fatwa yet on tobacco and smoking being HARAM!! So, is he saying it is not yet haram to go on smoking?

That’s the intellectual level of the racist UMNO MPs. Another dumb stupid, creations of the so called aparthaid policy of NEP.
