If Muslims smoke then they are worse than cows??

I know following recent shifts in law that the UK has become anti-smoking (if you are not aware, the only place you can legally smoke in the UK nowadays is on the roof of your own house), however, Malaya has taken a rather more stringent stance on the subject of smoking.

Muslim cleric and politician Nik Aziz, the spiritual leader of the country's Pan-Islamic Party (PAS) recently said that Muslims that smoked were more despicable than cows.

"...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, 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,"

Erm Nik, a cow, despicable? Obviously you have not been to McDonald's lately or chucked a nice big steak on the BBQ. Cows are lovely creatures, especially when cooked well.
As far as smoking goes, I think that your religion has a little more to worry about at the moment than people smoking. Yes, smoking is banned by Islam but so is strapping a few kilos of explosives to your body and detonating it in crowded places. Personally, I would sort this aspect of your religion out first.
