OK, folks. That’s a fib. It’s not true. It’s my sinister imagination running wild when I read in the news that Penang will be closing NS camps due to safety reasons. And apparently, these ‘unsafe’ NS camps were built without proper approval from the local authorities.

Hence, I thought, here’s the possible interim solution on matters relating to the dreaded ISA. But allow me to digress, just a wee bit, so that you’ll get a better perspective of my … errrm.. insanity.

AI, Pakatan Rakyat’s anointed leader is promising a range of radical changes if he becomes the next PM of Malaysia. To quote him:

“Anwar promises that if he becomes prime minister, he would not only scrap laws that muzzle criticism, but also upend the father-knows-best style of government and end a longstanding policy that favored the country’s majority Malays over other ethnic groups”………….

Anwar initially vowed to bring down the government by Tuesday, saying he had written commitments from enough lawmakers to force the government’s collapse. But he now concedes that the governing coalition’s move to send lawmakers to Taiwan could succeed in drawing off some support, forcing him to delay his bid for power……..

The changes that Anwar has proposed could change Malaysia substantially, and fast.

“All the draconian, oppressive laws must go,” Anwar said in a recent interview.

He promises to repeal Malaysia’s toughest laws that give the government the power to detain opponents without trial, ban unauthorised protests, bar students from participating in politics and keep the news media in line by requiring newspapers and magazines to apply for annual publishing permits.

He would also free all “political prisoners.”

Perhaps most explosive, he said he would end many special privileges for his own ethnic group, the Malays, who are given a variety of advantages, including discounts on houses, exclusive rights to government contracts and a reserved quota of stock-market shares. The privileges have angered the country’s two other main ethnic groups: Malaysian citizens of Chinese and Indian descent.”

Read the rest of the yadda yadda stuff here.

I am rather sick to the stomach listening to AI’s bellyaching promises for a better Malaysia under his guidance and am still waiting for some definitive contribution from him post GE12. There’s 82 (including one  ‘neither here nor there’ Kelantan bloke) opposition MPs in parliament and PR actually have governance in five states.

In light of the recent ISA detentions by the BN government, is it not possible for PR to get the Perak state government to issue a ‘get out of Perak’ order to the Federal administration? After all, when it comes to land matters, the relevant state have final say on any approval or otherwise. It does not matter what the reasons are as long as it is valid within the state’s constitution and I’m fairly certain such an order can be upheld in a court of law.

Therefore, why isn’t AI exercising the authority that’s within his hands if he truly has the political will to do so?

Maybe, I’m crazy to even suggest this preposterous idea but what the heck, here it is. Hmmmm.. I can hear somebody choking on his sambal petai muffins….

Meanwhile, who cares where the BN government will move ‘Kamunting camp’ to coz every other state ain’t gonna touch a hot potato.

Btw is there an NS camp in Kamunting? Just wondering, that’s all.

Update: 1730HR 15/09/08.

Told yer that Kelantan bloke was wishy-washy, didn’t I.

I can arguably say that he is primarily responsible for Malaysia to have lost PBP to RDC.

Ok, ok, you may beg to differ but I did qualify myself with this observation from an argumentative point of view, didn’t I.

And while we can ‘argue’ till the cows come home from Kamunting, pigs can fly to Taiwan.. Timbuktu and the buffalos rempits.. roam the plains of Putrajaya, this loser will again be primarily responsible for another potential lost.

Taken from the People’s Parliament:

Got a call from lil hummingbird.

“We must meet. RPK is in danger.”

We met.

“You look like shit!”, he said.

“I feel like that as well”, I replied.

“You remember when RPK was in remand at Sungai Buloh the last time and he refused to eat or drink and the prison authorities got so worried that they begged his wife to get him out?

“Well, RPK is on hunger strike again. No food and no water. The authorities know that his kidneys will not be able to take this for long too long. They are going to let this carry on in the hope that complications set in and that he will suffer organ malfunction.

“That’s why even though there are news reports that Teresa’s family will be allowed to see her, probably tomorrow, there is no word that RPK’s family will be allowed the same. Lawyers have already written asking that they be permitted to meet with RPK but no word yet.

“They’re going to wait until his condition is critical before they get him medical attention. By then it will be too late. RPK would already be dead.

“That’s what they are banking on. They’ll say he brought it on himself.

“You people can hold all the vigils you want. That’s not going to get him out.

“Pakatan have to move now. Anwar has to stop this nonsense of waiting for enough Malay MPs to crossover before he seeks the audience with the Agong to intimate that Pak Lah has lost the confidence of the majority of MPs in Parliament. Didn’t the rakyat reject race-based politics at the last general elections and at Permatang Pauh? Go form the federal government now.

“Anwar has the numbers already, so he should not delay any longer.

“RPK has been without food or water since Friday. He’s not going to last long.

“We must get him out now. Otherwise the authorities will be returning him to us in a coffin!

And we can only get RPK out now if Pakatan takes over immediately”.

Soooo… yer still wanna ‘argue’ with me?

KENYATAAN NAZIR MASJID KOTA DAMANSARA




Adalah saya selaku nazir Masjid Kota Damansara dan jawatankuasa ingin merujuk kepada isu larangan penggunaan azan oleh orang bukan islam yang kononnya didalangi oleh Teresa Kok @ DAP seperti yang diwar oleh Melayu Net dalam laman ini dan juga kenyataan Bekas Menteri Besar Selangor (Khir Toyo) dalam Utusan Malaysia bertarikh 9.9.2008.

Pihak jawatankuasa masjid melihat isu yang sengaja ditimbulkan oleh pihak yang kecewa ini berniat jahat, fitnah dan cuba menimbulkan suasana tidak harmonis dan prajudis dikalangan pelbagai bangsa di Kota Damansara.

Adalah amat malang lagi dangkal seorang bekas Menteri Besar (Khir Toyo) boleh mengutip khabar angin (berita sampah) lalu bersedia untuk menjadi jaguh mempertahankan islam. Walhal sejarah telah terpahat tentang isu menutup surau, menangkap penceramah, mengadakan pelbagai sekatan terhadap perkembangan syiar islam, zakat dijadikan senjata mengugut pelajar Al-azhar yang tidak sehaluan (banyak lagi) sewaktu beliau berkuasa di Selangor dulu.

Sebenarnya apa yang berlaku bukan atas tekanan dan bantahan oleh orang bukan islam, tetapi sistem pembesar suara masjid dalam proses ujian oleh pihak kontraktor. Untuk makluman semua Masjid Kota Damansara baru 2 minggu digunakan. Sudah pasti terdapat kekurangan dan kelemahan disana sini. Masih dalam jaminan pihak kontraktor selama setahun. Disamping itu, berlaku masalah elektrikal pada pembesar suara ekoran masalah cuaca baru-baru ini.

Bagi mengatasi untuk tujuan kuliah, tarawikh, tazkirah dsbnya, pihak masjid berterima kasih kepada Pengurusan Sekolah Menengah Seksyen 10 Kota Damansara yang bersedia meminjamkan PA Sistemnya. dan telah digunakan dengan sempurna. Insya-Allah sistem pembesar suara masjid dalam proses pembaikan dan dijangka siap pada hari ini (9.9.2008) mengikut janji kontraktor. Namun untuk mengatakan azan tidak kedengaran langsung adalah satu pembohongan kerana pihak masjid menyambug sistem tersebut ke menara.

Justeri itu, pihak masjid meminta Melayu net dan pihak berkenaan memohon maaf diatas fitnah jahat tersebut yang menyebabkan timbul sipa prajudis dikalangan umat islam KOta Damansara.

Sekian, wassalam.

On 8th September ’08, this was said by MKT, the former menteri besar of Selangor:

Ada usaha larang azan di masjid-masjid Selangor

SHAH ALAM 8 Sept. – Kerajaan campuran negeri Selangor diingatkan agar bersikap tegas dengan tidak melayan mana-mana pihak mendesak yang mahukan azan solat di surau dan masjid di negeri itu tidak lagi menggunakan pembesar suara.

Bekas Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Dr. Mohamad Khir Toyo membuat desakan ekoran ada usaha pihak yang dipercayai didalangi salah sebuah parti yang membentuk kerajaan negeri itu, membuat petisyen membantah azan di Puchong dan Kota Damansara.

”Bagi UMNO, kita mahukan kerajaan negeri bertegas, jangan mudah mengalah kerana apa yang kelihatan ketika ini PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) seolah-olah mengalah membiarkan sahaja perkara itu berlaku, manakala Pas pula tidak memainkan peranan.

”Ini sesuatu yang menghina Islam sedangkan Islam adalah agama rasmi, mempunyai peruntukan menggunakan Kumpulan Wang Disatukan untuk pembangunan,” katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Beliau diminta mengulas beberapa laporan mendakwa azan di Masjid Seksyen 5, Kota Damansara yang baru siap dan digunakan menjelang Ramadan lalu, tidak menggunakan pembesar suara dipercayai mempunyai kaitan dengan bantahan penduduk kawasan berkenaan.

Selain itu, katanya, usaha menyediakan petisyen membantah azan seperti itu juga pernah dilakukan sekumpulan penduduk di Puchong sejak Mei lalu.

”Di Puchong dan Kota Damansara, ada pihak mahu azan di kawasan itu dihentikan atas alasan menganggu penduduk.

”Tetapi saya percaya kalau penduduk yang membuat petisyen itu, mesti ada pihak-pihak yang mendorong mereka untuk berbuat demikian.

”Sedangkan kita mengamalkan kebebasan beragama, apabila ada penganut agama tertentu meraikan perayaan mereka sehingga membawa kepada penutupan jalan, orang Islam tidak membantah,” ujar beliau.

Who’s the good muslim and who isn’t? Tough question to answer? Well, let me re-phrase it so we’ll get to the bottom of the matter. One accuses without being specific on whom the accusation is intended for while the other identifies the person and his sins to exonerate the innocent. Gettit!

Yeah, right. Tell it to the cops.
