There are not a few topics of Chinese customs that can be discussed, with fun but are healthy and functioning and not debating the coachman if you wish.
For example, I once asked, why after the Chiang Kai-shek era, there were almost no Chinese people with mustaches !? This is a question of a serious aspect of habit, but no one has an interest in discussing it except responding with jokes perhaps because they don’t know the answer. Probably because it had never been aware of the existence of such a phenomenon of Chinese habits, namely that contemporary Chinese are arguably the only ethnic group in the world that has a practice of not caring for mustaches! Okay, if the mustache problem is difficult to answer, my next question is how is the position of gambling in Chinese habits? Hopefully, this is easier to answer.
Is gambling something forbidden or unclean in Chinese customs? Or something mediocre, forbidden or not, or not recommended? Or maybe it’s something of a tradition of amusement activity in respectable and recommended Chinese customs?
In an Islamic lecture that I attended about five years ago, the ustadz who acted as a speaker expressed the importance of inter-religious tolerance. Don’t attack other religions, by looking for errors in the ritual practices of other religions when compared to your religious rituals, and he said because Islamic principles are my religion, your religion.
So similar cases that are often discussed in this forum about trying Christian Chinese do not have to criticize Confucian Chinese as worship, because the value system is different. The idols for Christians and Islam, are not necessarily idols for Confucians or Hindus, for example.
Returning to the Islamic lecture that I attended, unique, to strengthen the substance of his speech on the need for you to glorify each other’s ritual practices of other religions, the ustadz took, for example, the habit of gambling among Chinese people.
The Ustadz criticized the behavior while Islamic activists who like over-acting raided gambling places, with arguments in defense of Islam. Said the cleric, those who gambled in these places were not necessarily Muslims, where it was uncertain the religion of the gambling people prohibited gambling like Islam forbid gambling.
For example, the cleric said further, that Chinese people do not forbid gambling, even gambling is a habit of respectable Chinese. If there are deaths among Chinese, for example, it is most common for sad people (taqziah) then open a gambling table. So honored was gambling in Chinese customs, to the point, repeated the ustadz, the Chinese had the god of gambling, namely sianjin or toapekong who ‘nurtured’ gambling work! Unique than unique, happens to be the cleric I am talking about, a Chinese ethnic !!
There are some different places outside Indonesia where gambling is not prohibited. At least according to information from the law. In Australia, for example, casinos are located in each city, and I often visit them. Not to gamble, watch it, because if you bet, this is not uncommon to lose. Let alone bet with people many gambling tables. The three jumps or even the two of them alone, I often lose! Besides, casinos in Australia generally, in Melbourne for example, are the most comfortable luxury places to visit, though not for gambling.
Well, visiting casinos in Australia, what impressed me most was that some of the visitors were Chinese! Far more than the number of visitors to ethnic Latin, Anglo Saxon or other Europe. So it may be true that gambling is a respectable Chinese ethnic, cultural activity because in all corners of the world Chinese people are most intensively gambling.
But, not necessarily gambling is a respectable phenomenon of Chinese customs?
I once read a story that was initially a relay story (feuilleton) in the Sin Po newspaper in 1936, titled “Liong Boen Ho Kiat.” The story was held in the era of Emperor Beng Sin Cong (Ming Shenzong Wanli 明 神宗 萬曆), the emperor ruled for a long time (1572-1620) in the Beng dynasty (Ming), but even the emperor greatly caused the decadence of his dynasty. In the story translated by the OKT in Chinese-Malay language, it is reflected in how evil the effects of gambling, which in Malay in the 1930s, are referred to as “main top,” and their prisoners are called “pentosans.”
Gambling is indeed reflected as an activity that is not forbidden:
“… In the daily newspaper, people who are co-opted are going to relocate, and the free time is expressed by every way he is a person, among others is by cooperating with the djoedi, main dadoe or maen kartoe …”
But at the same time gambling is also reflected as a detrimental activity, primarily because of the nature of its addictive and criminal tendency:
“… Yoe Tjin Lok was so busy playing the top. It was the day he spent his day at his tee-hong village or the head of the Kampoeng who had the name Tjo Tjeng. What was the tjilaka for him, he had the bad luck losing his neck, until he became the most annoyed, as long as he keeps on going and wants to be able to play so that he can pull ahead of his defeat and win? Satoe holds the mainland easily or eyes dark said Yoe Tjin Lok, who didn’t want to be loud. , I want to go to the saroepa ceremony, the co-op item, which is the Koei jade, the koemala who is still charming and charming. He brought this to Tjo Tjeng. The bounce was done. “
So … please take a look at the one who mastered the aspects of Chinese customs on this mailing list, to state how the symptoms of ‘top play’ really are or gamble from being Chinese.
