Muslims who smoke and try to portray themselves as pious are worse than cows which defecate in the street, a top Malaysian Muslim cleric and politician said."...a cow which defecates in the middle of the road, (we) cannot take legal action against it because it has no
brain and cannot think," said Nik Aziz who is the spiritual leader of the country's Pan-Islamic Party (PAS).
"But human beings, who have brains, for them to do something which is wrong in religion ... when they are in an attire which symbolises Islam, they can be regarded as being more despicable than cows," he said on Friday, according to Malaysia's state news agency Bernama. (Reuters)
