His unexpected reply came after opposition lawmaker Dr Tan Seng Giaw asked if the recent rise in the prices of goods was in the “hands of God”.
“YB Kepong asked if raising prices of goods is in the hands of God. God has never told anyone to raise prices or reduce it.
“It's those who don't believe in God [who] are the ones who always raise prices. Those who believe in God will follow ethical ways and not simply raise prices,” Hamzah said.
The Larut MP then suggested that the rival lawmaker’s query indicated the latter’s lack of faith.
“His question might be because he is unsure whether to believe in God or the otherwise,” Hamzah added.
Agreed. Among others,
TNB doesn't believe in God.
LRT/MRT operators don't.
KLIA train service operator doesn't.
In fact, the whole government don't.
