Takiyuddin Refers To Kedah Landslide Disasters As "Acts Of God", Immediately Receives Backlash

By Ayunie

Pretty shocking statement coming from our very own Energy and Natural Resources Minister, Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan, who accused the divine intervention as the primal cause of Kedah landslides.


His statement, however, was rebutted by the opposition minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who argued, "In the issues of nature, you cannot blame God, when the issue has been mentioned by the previous minister; how can you blame god when it's the humans who have been reckless with their logging?" 


Takiyuddin then responded by saying that there have not been any approval in licenses by the state authorities for logging activities in the area, at least not in the past three years. He also added that the government has allocated RM75 million for forest restorations, including Gunung Jerai, where the landslides had occurred. 

As Takiyuddin's statement starts to circle around the internet, member of Parliament for Muar, Syed Saddiq, chimed in on the discussion:

Others seem to share his sentiment as well:

Clearly, there is a clear problem here when something that can be rationally explained by science can easily be diminished under the "Act Of God" argument. 

Landslides are typically caused by climate change or human activities such as deforestation, logging, construction, and more; all of which can be traced from one source: man-made disasters. In short, God is less likely to be involved here.
