Anwar is Selfish

Observers view the impending by-election for the Kajang state seat as a selfish attempt to put an end to the feud between the Mentri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim and Parti Keadilan Rakyat deputy president Azmin Ali.

Although Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had said in a statement that he was not eyeing the top position in Selangor, political analysts dismissed his denial and said that that could be the only reason Anwar wanted to contest in the by- election.

Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Mohd Faisol Keling said:

“Such action is obviously selfish and shows that Anwar has his own agenda for his political interest and it is not for the interest of the nation,” he told The Mole in a telephone interview.

Mohd Faisol was commenting on reports of Kajang assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh resigning from the Selangor Legislative Assembly on Monday to pave way for Anwar to contest.

Mohd Faisol said Anwar’s move to contest was definitely wasting a lot of public’s funds as the by- election was not necessary.

He however contended that the move was Anwar’s strategy to neutralise the feud between Khalid and Azmin.

“This will be one of his strategy to cool down the tense conflict between Khalid and Azmin,” Mohd Faisol said.

He added that it would be a good opportunity for Anwar to regain the people’s attention on Pakatan Rakyat and secure their support.

“From my perspective, this will be a platform for Anwar to garner support and strengthen his position even more,” he said.

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Associate Prof Dr Shamsul Adabi Mamat said Anwar’s move to contest in Kajang was to strengthen his position, adding that this was not the first time Anwar had resorted to such a move.

“It has happened before when Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah (Wan Ismail – Anwar’s wife and PKR president) had resigned as MP for Permatang Pauh to enable her husband to contest and be returned as an MP,” he said.

Dr Shamsul Adabi also said such a move was also to ensure his position would be more effective and to make sure Selangor become a stronger base for Pakatan, adding it would not be easy for Barisan National to re-capture the Selangor.

Universiti Sains Malaysia’s (USM) Social Science Studies lecturer Prof Dr Ahmad Atory Hussain however believed that it would not be a smooth road for Anwar to be the Mentri Besar of Selangor, as he needed the Sultan’s approval before he could assume the post.

“To be a Mentri Besar is not an easy task. Anwar has to get the consent of the Sultan first,” he said.

Dr Ahmad Atory also said that the Mentri Besar must be Selangor-born and as such it was unlikely that Anwar could change the rules; as all the previous Mentris Besar were Selangor-born.

He also said Anwar’s decision was bound to bring about negative reactions from all sides.

“There must be a hidden agenda for him to contest in this by- election; after all he has been critical of Khalid’s administration before this,” he said.

Lee Chin Cheh, who resigned as Kajang state assemblyman yesterday said the decision was made based on common interest and to strengthen the opposition’s ability to serve the people in Selangor.

Malay Mail reported that Azmin said Lee Chin Cheh’s resignation as Kajang State assemblyman was a tactical move to strengthen Pakatan’s hold on Selangor.

“It was a tactical move, we needed the seat to be vacated,” Azmin was quoted as saying.

“Khalid Ibrahim has laid a strong foundation for the past five years. But we should not be too complacent,” Azmin added.

Khalid Ibrahim had denied claims that he agreed to make way for Anwar to run Selangor.

Anwar memes making social media rounds

Source: Malaysian Insider

Internet memes poking fun at Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim have already sprouted, barely 24 hours after the opposition leader was announced as PKR’s candidate for Selangor’s Kajang seat.

One has a picture of the opposition leader with Kajang’s most famous product – satay – in the background with the caption “Jika saya memang dun kajang, harga satay akan turun” (If I win the Kajang seat, the price of satay will go down).

This was in reference to Anwar’s Pakatan Rakyat general election pledges where the opposition pact promised a slew of reduction in a number of services, from abolishment of toll rates to the federal education fund PTPTN.

Another meme has a picture of Anwar holding a bunch of satay sticks with the caption “Satay turun harga jika saya menang” (the price of satay to be reduced if I win) with the price reduced from the current RM1 a stick to 30sen a stick.

A meme is defined as an idea, behaviour or style that swiftly replicates and spreads from person to person within a culture. The memes are widely shared on social media. Anwar is not the first politician to be lamAnother Anwar meme. – The Malaysian Insider pic, January 29, 2014.Another Anwar meme. – The Malaysian Insider pic, January 29, 2014.pooned on the Internet.

Recently, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s kangkung remark, when he said Malaysians were ungrateful when the price of vegetables went down, was widely parodied, spawning jokes, videos and memes.

Following the shock resignation of Lee Chin Cheh from the mixed urban seat, Anwar was named as the party’s candidate, fuelling speculation that it was to pave the way for him to become the next menteri besar and to put a stop to the feud between his loyalist Azmin Ali and incumbent MB Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

However, Anwar fended off the MB claim, insisting that he was running as a state assemblyman in order to help strengthen Selangor Pakatan Rakyat’s performance in running the state and to build momentum for the coalition’s ambitions to take over federal power.

“This decision is for me to help improve the already stellar performance of the state administration under Abdul Khalid. “It is to make Selangor a base from which to launch our campaign to take over Putrajaya,” Anwar said yesterday.

The statements in their sermons are creating havoc in the minds of ordinary Muslims to a point where if Christians react, there would be turmoil! Fortunately, there has been calm and patience amongst the Non-Muslims, in particular the Christians! Jakim better not push beyond the limit and only Umno is to be blamed together with their proxies in Perkasa, ISMA and other so-called protectors of the Malay/ Muslim majority!

    Kajang by-election: PAS does not want Anwar to replace Khalid as MB

    PAS has continued its attacks on PKR’s move to force a by-election in Kajang by fielding its top leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, an attempt allegedly to replace its Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.

    PAS Dewan Ulamak information chief Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali said that the position of Mentri Besar was a decision made by the Islamist party, through its president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

    “Continuously questioning Khalid as a Mentri Besar means that they are questioning our president’s intelligence,” said Khairuddin, in a strongly-worded statement Wednesday.

    He blamed the latest fiasco on “some PKR leaders” who failed to fulfil their personal interests under Khalid, who was known to be firm in managing the state finance.

    Khairuddin was confident that the real reason behind the move was to replace the Mentri Besar by PKR and to avoid the position being taken up by PAS.

    By right, the Mentri Besar position belongs to PAS as it held the majority of seats in the state with 15 seats , apart from its other ally, DAP, also with 15 seats. PKR has 13 seats.

    Khalid was re-appointed as the Mentri Besar, on a consensus within Pakatan Rakyat, for the second term after May 5 general election judging from his performance in the first term.

    “The purpose of this move is for PKR to prevent the position being taken up by PAS.

    “This is an insult to our tahaluf siyasi (political cooperation),” he said, adding that it was a “sneaky” move.

    “This shows that they put their party interest first instead of Pakatan Rakyat’s interest,” said Khairuddin who is also a Kuala Nerus MP.

    Khairuddin also said that there was no reason to replace Khalid as MB as he has been administrating the state successfully.

    He added that if there was a need to replace the top post, it would easily be given back to PAS, by appointing its Selangor party commissioner Iskandar Abdul Samad, who is a Cempaka assemblyman and a state exco.

    “To be involved in a Kajang by-election just to fulfil Anwar’s agenda to become MB replacing Khalid is an insult to PAS. PAS shouldn’t let this to happen,” he said.

    PAS has come out in full force condemning the “tactical” move by PKR since the resignation of its Kajang assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh on Monday.

    They also claimed that they were kept in the dark and the decision was made by the top Pakatan leaders.

      Many of the people in Jakim do not have any meaningful experience or relationship with people of other faiths. Many attended single race schools and did their religious studies in countries that have no experience of diversity. In other words their ideas and their interpretation of scripture has little relevance to us. In fact they could be dangerous to the peaceful relationships we have enjoyed for hundreds of years. These people will be threatened by friendships between people of different faiths and different religions. See how much we have lost. There was a time when children of all races would be in and out of each others homes. An open house was just that. You came into my house and I came to yours. There was no difficulty from eating out of plates from my house and drinking from glasses from my house. Malays would attend funeral services in Christian churches. Friendships would be deep transcending race and religion. Respect was always there.Do not let Jakim divide us.

    Many Pakatan supporters were angry with PKR and said they were no different to the country’s ruling party. They showed their displeasure on various social networking platforms.

    Surendran was also disappointed that electoral watchdog Bersih had compared Lee to former Jelapang assemblyman Hee Yit Foong who resigned from DAP back in 2009, sparking a constitutional crisis.

    BUT IS IT TOO LATE? Najib tries to stem party revolt against him by Dr M, Daim factions

    Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will tonight move to head off a campaign in Umno by his critics to build up a groundswell against him that began after the party’s general assembly last month.

    The Malaysian Insider has learnt that the Umno president will meet division chiefs, opinion makers in the party and his supporters to address criticisms against his leadership by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Daim Zainuddin and other party veterans.

    Najib is expected to outline what he believes are motives behind these attacks that have been played out in cyberspace, similar to the campaign that finally unseated Tun Abdullah Badawi in 2009.

    Following the closed-door briefing, the Najib loyalists are expected to go down to the ground and spread the PM’s message to stay the course and ignore the critics.

    The briefing is a sign that Najib and his advisers finally accept that the sustained attacks against him are a serious matter and having an effect on his hold on power.

    Najib won the Umno presidency for the second term uncontested and has most of his men in the party’s highest decision-making body, the supreme council, but that has not stopped mounting criticisms about his leadership.

    But there is no immediate danger of Najib losing his hold on power in the party or Parliament although there has been speculation that his critics want him to resign before the year is out.

    Najib’s mandate as party president runs until 2016 and the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) has until 2018 before its term expires.

    His public silence over the attacks within the party and in cyberspace has been seen as a sign of weakness, akin to Abdullah’s “eloquent silence” when the former prime minister was castigated and dubbed as “Slumberjack”.

    Najib strongman and party secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor have told critics to use party channels to voice their grouses in an apparent swipe at Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir for saying Najib’s subsidy cuts would affect BN’s support in the next general election.

    Mukhriz’s father, former prime minister Dr Mahathir, has also not minced his words about BN under Najib, saying the coalition was weak and the government should cut expenses rather than subsidies – running counter to the prime minister’s reform agenda.

    Daim, the former government economic adviser and finance minister, had also told a closed-door briefing in Merbok Umno 10 days ago that BN could lose the government if elections were held now with current BN policies.

    The prime minister has also been the butt of jokes in cyberspace over his remarks that people should be grateful to the government for falling prices instead of just blaming them for price hikes.

    Sources within the Prime Minister’s Office say Najib’s aides have also accused his younger brother, CIMB boss Datuk Seri Nazir Razak, of a “vicious, veiled attack” on his brother in an article to commemorate the death anniversary of their father, former prime minister Tun Abdul Razak Hussein, who died in 1976.

    In the article published by The Malaysian Insider and two other media outlets, Nazir praised his father for his integrity and frugal ways and said the country’s leaders should return to the path to develop the country.

    Najib came to power in April 2009 promising reforms and liberalisation under his 1Malaysia platform, saying that the days of “government knows best” were over.

    But his reforms floundered as BN lost more seats in the general election last year and Malaysia’s economy slipped in tandem with the gloomy global outlook, forcing Najib to cut subsidies and introduce a consumption tax to keep positive financial ratings.

    The subsidy cuts and mandatory minimum wages together with rising living costs come at a time when the prime minister is under attack for his frequent trips abroad and inability to rein in public expenditure.

    Stung by the criticisms, Najib announced 11 measures in an austerity drive but critics say it was too little and too late and that Dr Mahathir should return to revive Malaysia’s fortunes. – TMI

    Look like extremism is really coming into fashion now.

    UMNO will definitely be more extremist if Dr. M camp take over the leadership. Possibly with Mukhriz coming to be high up in UMNO and the Federal government and carry out Dr. M biddings.

    Expect the ISA and all the other good stuffs to be back in play soon after if DS Najib is forced out at the next UMNO assembly

  6. Joe cool Perkasa 1Melayu May 13, 1969 Ini Tanah Melayu Mau Lagi Kah!!! says:

    I think from now on, Dr. M will only trust Mukhriz to really take over as UMNO President and Malaysia PM and enforce the strict regime that was so successful in keeping UMNO in power.

    The two UMNO Presidents that followed Dr. M were sleepy head and kangkung brain so now Dr. M will put somebody who will not take any nonsense like abolishing the ISA.

    Someone who can really stand up to the top gay guy and ensure that UMNO will do everything possible to stay in power.

    Therefore expect another 22 years of a Mahathir as PM.

    BN-PR MUST RESPOND to Najib’s agreement to nat’l reconciliation immediately – Teresa

    It was reported in today’s media that at least eight gravestones at a Christian cemetery in Tanjung Api near Kuantan were damaged by vandals. Most have its structures broken including crosses using a heavy tool.

    Such irresponsible acts must be condemned and swift police actions are needed to bring the culprits to book.

    Although it has yet to be established if the vandalism was related to “Allah is Great, Jesus is the son of Allah” banners found outside churches in Penang, there will be the unavoidable suspicion that this could be the act of religious extremists or racial bigots amid the present religious and racial tensions in the country.

    In this connection, the federal government has the utmost and urgent responsibility to douse the tensions.

    Dialogue ASAP

    Pakatan Rakyat has in recent weeks called for a dialogue between the top leadership of both BN and PR to discuss ways to resolve the rising tensions as well to work out a blueprint for national reconciliation.

    Prime Minister Datuk Seri has yesterday given a positive response by saying that the federal government is open to holding talks with all parties to promote national reconciliation, unlike the Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin who still prefers to play politics amid rising racial and religious tensions in the country.

    2 days ago, Khairy Jamaluddin said the racial tension started because of Pakatan Rakyat’s failure in handling the Allah issue in Selangor. He was quoted as saying “Settle it first, then only we can talk”.

    It is irresponsible for him to put the blame on the Selangor government when the fact is that the Cabinet‘s approved 10 point solution was not able to resolve the issue. It is disappointing that he cannot rise above party politics at a time when bi partisan cooperation is needed in the nation’s interest.

    Nevertheless, what is important is for the Prime Minister to arrange a dialogue date as soon as possible with Pakatan Rakyat leaders so that the rising religious and racial tensions can be quickly doused and a national reconciliation blueprint be worked out.

    Haaaa, this Constitutional law expert says a constitutional crisis could be triggered in Selangor if Khalid is forced out of his post.

    Syahredzan Johan said there are a few situations where a crisis could be triggered.
    One is if disgruntled Khalid requests the Sultan to dissolve the assembly and the Sultan grants the request. In this situation a new state election would have to be called.

    Syahredzan said another possibility of a crisis is if the Sultan does not accept the one proposed as a new Mentri Besar. The Sultan has the discretion and if he does not agree, a crisis occurs.

    Syahredzan explained that in almost every other matter, the Sultan acts on advice but in this matter he has discretion. “The Menteri Besar must be someone who in His Royal Highness’ judgment has the support of the majority of the legislative assembly,” he added. Members of Selangor PAS said they will propose a candidate for Mentri Besar should the post become vacant.

    “If PAS proposes a name as well, it’s going to be a numbers game on who has support of the legislative assembly,” said Syahredzan.

    Anyone cares for a crisis? Kalimah Allah crisis, DAP CEC Re-Election / DAP De-Registration crisis, MB Selangor crisis?

      Khalid is adamant. Malaysia Chronicle quotes Malaysia Kini:

      AS IF MB POST BELONGS TO HIM! – Khalid

      “I have no intention of resigning. Whatever happens after the by-election, we will discuss it at Pakatan Rakyat level,” he said.

      Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (pic) has called on all parties to focus on winning the battle first and thinking about the war later.

      Speculation has been rife that PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is contesting the Kajang state seat, will succeed Khalid as the Selangor Menteri Besar.

      However, Khalid has called on everyone to forget about the Selangor MB’s position for now and focus on winning the Kajang by-election.

      “I have no intention of resigning. Whatever happens after the by-election, we will discuss it at Pakatan Rakyat level,” he said.

      Khalid said this during a special interview with radio network BFM and financial daily The Edge, which was broadcast by Selangor’s official media, Selangorkini.

      The interview comes at a time of crisis for PKR with claims that there are plans to replace Khalid as the Selangor Menteri Besar, following the resignation of Kajang state assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh.

      When asked whether he had the support of Pakatan Rakyat coalition partners DAP and PAS, Khalid replied: “Yes, I have their support”.

      Asked about support from PKR, Khalid said he left that to God.

      He expressed confidence about Selangor’s bright future, saying that it was not just talking about ideas, but that the money was there to turn ideas into reality.

      This is because during the first four years of Pakatan Rakyat’s administration in Selangor, the state government built up a solid financial reserve. (He did not mention about him using a substantial part of the money to increase his and his colleagues’ salaries and allowances).

    Anwar in Kajang to secure Selangor against Umno if Najib falls, says Rafizi
    BY EILEEN NG -January 29, 2014

    PKR is putting Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in Kajang to defend Selangor from being taken over by Umno if the ruling party unseats party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak, party strategist Rafizi Ramli (pic) said today.

    He said it was an open secret that moves to remove Najib has begun and once it was done, Umno will unleash every “unscrupulous attack and schemes” to take the state back “by hook or by crook”.

    “As a party strategist, I cannot rule out the possibility that once Najib is removed and Umno falls to the ultras led by the Mahathir Mohamad faction,” he said today in a statement while apologising to the public especially the voters of Kajang for the by-election.

    PKR and allies DAP and PAS won Selangor for the second term in Election 2013 with 44 state seats, six more than in the 2008 polls, battering Selangor Umno which only picked up 12 seats despite being led by Najib.

    Rafizi said the by-election would certainly consume public money and public space at a time when the people have to go through economic hardship.

    He said Umno’s cards were all too obvious in the latest round of racial and religious controversies stirred up in Selangor in the last few months.

    Rafizi said this did not mean there might be a change of stewardship in Selangor, which was currently helmed by popular Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, but it would give them the option to “optimise” its leadership potential if Umno caused more problems.

    “Option is key. Having the option means having the flexibility of manoeuvres that can easily frustrate Umno’s game in Selangor, especially with regards to racial and religious controversies.”

    He acknowledged that under Khalid’s stewardship, Selangor, Malaysia’s richest and most industrialised state, had shown “sterling” performance in the last six years and set a “gold standard” in integrity and prudence in managing public funds.

    But, Rafizi said, there were problems and challenges that required intervention.

    These included traffic woes, affordable public housing and water resources.

    “Selangor has to be doubly better than what it is today if it were to become a showcase for Pakatan in its quest for Putrajaya.

    Following the resignation of Lee Chin Cheh from the seat, PKR named Anwar as the candidate, fuelling speculation that it was a move to pave the way for him to become the next menteri besar and to put a stop to the ongoing feud between his loyalist Azmin Ali and Khalid.

    However, Anwar fended off suggestions that his candidacy was to pave the way for him to take over from Khalid, insisting that he was running as a state assembly member in order to help strengthen Pakatan’s running of the state and to build momentum for the coalition’s ambitions to take over federal power.

    “This decision is for me to help improve the already stellar performance of the state administration under Khalid.

    “It is to make Selangor a base from which to launch our campaign to take over Putrajaya,” Anwar said yesterday.

    He also fended off criticism that the party was using the by-election to resolve what was really an internal party crisis.

    “We have to explain to the people the rationale of this by-election. It is to give space to a candidate that can help boost the state’s administration. I will assist the state government in whatever way I can.”

    Khalid’s feud with his party over how he runs the state became an open secret months after he was sworn in for a second term after the 13th general election.

    During the state’s budget session last October, Khalid clashed with Selangor PKR over a hike in the salaries of elected representatives, state executive councillors, the state assembly speaker and menteri besar.

    Azmin, who is Bukit Antarabangsa assemblyman, and Anwar, opposed the salary hikes, some of which were increased by up to 300%.

    Khalid was also criticised for the amount of funds set aside for development in the state budget which were said to be less than expected compared with the amount allocated for the operating expenditure.

    A few weeks ago, things came to a head again between Khalid and Azmin over Azmin’s termination as a director on the board of state property developer PKNS.

    Azmin blamed Khalid for dropping him as a board member but Khalid claimed it was the corporation’s decision.

    An investigation is currently under way to get to the bottom of the issue. – January 29, 2014.
    _________________________
    Let’s see if we can get all these things right.

    DS Najib will be forced out by Dr. M team. Then UMNO will unleash unscrupulous attacks and scheme to take over Selangor.

    Khalid performance is sterling but he cannot frustrate UMNO game in Selangor

    Khalid performance is gold standard but he cannot solve traffic woes, affordable public housing and water resources.

    Selangor government performance under Khalid is already stellar but the top gay guy MB is still needed in the Selangor to help improve this stellar performance.

    The top gay guy MB is also needed in the Selangor DUN to give space to a candidate that can help boost the state’s administration and for him to assist the state government in whatever way the top gay guy MB can

    Seem kind of trivial to go to all the trouble of having a by-election if the performance is already sterling, gold standard and stellar and just to give space and assist

      Rafizi’s statements include lies, twists and spins, as usual:

      1. PKR trying to cover up internal party problems, fighting to the death between Azmin Ali & Khalid Ibrahim

      2. Anwar Ibrahim getting more desperate – it’s all been planned this Kajang adventure: Anwar applied for address change the day after the PKR ADUN resigned (MB aspirant must be resident in Selangor though Election Commission Chairman said his application to EC would not enable him to vote – processing will only be completed in May).

      3. The PKR ADUN’s reason for resignation was “to ensure party survival” or words to that effect. Anwar’s actions must have been because of PKR serious fights between Khalid and Azmin. Khalid did not admit being involved or given quiet instructions to remove Azmin from PKNS directorship, but produced unclear, even dubious sounding extracts of Minutes of Selangor Exco Meeting concerning the matter.

      4. The PKNS GM and Secretary were only “transferred” to the State Secretariat and will presumabbly be given back the jobs when things settle down later

      5. Khalid was reported to be adamant, telling newsmen he has no intention of resigning, said he has the blessings of DAP and PAS to continue, but when asked about support from PKR to continue as MB, he said he leaves it to God.

      6. Actually, he was referring to Anwar on whom his fate rests. If Anwar does the hoo haa of standing in Kajang, then lets Khalid continue, Rafizi’s statements above must be kencing-ed.

      7. Anwar may not get HRH Sultan’s assent to be MB and PAS also wants the post because now PKR has only 13 seats when PAS has 15.

      That PKR ADUN who resigned may not have agood Chinese New Year to day – many must be cursing him and PKR for appearing to have started the main-main with a by election.

      Anwar asking for a dialogue is simply because he wants to be in the limelight. The lights around him have been dim in recent times. Dimmer because of Sodomy II Appeal trial and the prospect of him going to prison again.

      So, he creates issues, like he always did in the past, in order to constantly be in the limelight. He gives the impression that he’d take over the Selangor MB post. But he knows that there is no guarantee that Tuanku Sultan would agree to his appointment even if Pakatan proposes it.

      Remember, Sultan Perak called all Perak ADUNs to determine whether PAS Nizar has the support of the majority after 2 ADUNs resigned. It ended up with Nizar becoming Menteri Besar Sakejap.

      This time, if Sultan Selangor calls all ADUNs now amidst talk of Khalid being asked to resign, PAS would not agree to anyone other than PAS candidate to be MB. They have 15 seats whereas PKR has only 13. This will remain so for the next nearly 2 months at least.

      Maybe Tuanku Sultan would call all ADUNs now to determine who has majority support in DUN Selangor?

    Racial tensions in Malaysia: THE TRIGGER CAUSES – Written by Christopher Fernandez, Malaysia Chronicle

    When faulted and blamed by a growing many of Malaysians for triggering racial tension and disunity in the country by the use of partisan politics and politics based on race, it is not uncommon for the governing Barisan Nasional (BN) to hide behind clever rhetoric and semantics.

    BN is a wholly raced-based political party. This is why and this is clearly the reason why racism in this country has escalated to dangerous and alarming levels. If ever any transformation is needed in this country, it is imperative that it begins with eradicating race-based politics.

    As a glaring example, Malaysians of all walks of life point out how come the national football team is void of any Malaysian Chinese players? It is inconceivable and unbelievable that no Malaysian Chinese is capable of being selected to play at national level. Or is this just the result of racism within the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM)?

    FAM and its leadership have long been condemned for the declining standards of football in the country. Are they also guilty of practicing racism and politics in the process of administrating the game of football in this country?

    There is no need to look further. In the process of winning her way to being the top choice of reader’s as an author by an English daily in a competition open to Malaysian writers, it is disheartening to note that the polling was all along played along racial lines.

    The winner even eclipsed an Asian Booker Prize Literary winner though her authorship can be considered nothing more than a mediocre effort. The only reason she was declared the winner was because of strong support from a particular race.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg. In a competition recently to judge the best singer, it was also polling from a certain race that shored up the chances of winning while those with real talent and ability are left floundering because they have no race-based support.

    When will it end? When will racism stop its ugly head from rearing into the lives of Malaysians who are beginning to be tempted to despair by the litany of injustices and unfairness by BN leading the way with the promotion of racism?
    _____________________
    Racism will never end in Malaysia. There are too many people who enjoy seeing it propagate.

    Come dialogue or no dialogue.

    But do the international community give a fuck about whether there is racism in Malaysia?

    No. Of course they don’t.

    Has Malaysia been censured because of her racism. Never.

    In fact, the international community, in their stupidity and their indifference are acknowledging that Malaysia race relationship management is top notch. Best in class.

    How stupid of this international community. How easy to fool them.

    FACTS ARE 1. Anwar will sweep Kajang 2. Umno can forget about S’gor with him as MB Written by P Dinesh, Malaysia Chronicle

    The end of 2013 saw Malaysians hit with multiple price hikes and subsidy removals. The BN government, through its incompetent administration of the economy, was squarely responsible for these outrages on our wallets.

    Perhaps to distract attention from these economic difficulties, religious tension was released and used to pit Muslims against Christians. It is worth noting, at this point, that it has been the political practice of the ruling BN, for decades, to use race and religion to divide the people, so that they may continue to remain in power.

    The doctrine of ‘Divide and Rule’ has been made dull by BN’s formulaic use of it as elections approach. This formula will fail once Malaysia reaches the right level of urbanization and as more people have access to information.

    It was against this gloomy backdrop that Anwar Ibrahim made his announcement that he would be standing for the state seat of Kajang in the state of Selangor.

    Selangor had been plagued for some time by tensions between the MB, Khalid Ibrahim, and Azmin Ali. PKR had 14 seats and DAP and PAS had 15 each. Khalid had clearly been exploiting these numbers to ensure Azmin did not replace him, playing off PAS and DAP against PKR.

    It was a most unhealthy state of events. The problem appeared insoluble, a Gordian knot. With his announcement, Anwar has presented us with a most Alexandrian solution.

    Dull performance from Khalid & his quarrelsome aides

    Yet, it is a shallow analyst who would conclude that the Kajang by-election is simply PKR’s way of solving an internal problems.

    The fact is that Khalid Ibrahim’s performance as Menteri Besar has been a most pedestrian one.

    The people’s expectation, when they unexpectedly found themselves presented with a Pakatan government one morning in 2008, was that they would soon be living in Camelot. Or that Pakatan would soon turn Selangor into a Silicon Valley.

    No such thing has happened. Five years later, Selangor is little different from how it was under the BN. The town councils remain indifferent and apathetic. PJ’s restaurants remain filthy, offering watered-down dishwashing liquid to those who want to wash their hands. There is little new development.

    Lots of money also equals lots of wasted OPPORTUNITIES

    Apparently, there is more money in the bank as Khalid Ibrahim is a frugal fellow. This would no doubt be a most useful skill if one were an urban housewife confronted with endless price-hikes.

    Also, he is touted as incorruptible because he has already made his money as a businessman! While this is excellent news, if that were the only measure of evaluation for an MB, we could replace him with a cigar-store Indian, or a clump of bananas.

    Selangor has 2 Billion or so in the bank, representing not savings, but opportunity lost. Investments would have generated and increased revenue for the state, and put more disposable income in the pockets of the people.

    Unable to manage infighting not just in PKR but within Pakatan Selangor

    To be fair to Khalid, he has been best known for managing plantations, and that is poor preparation for a globalized world where technology and high-end services are key drivers of growth. Naturally, Pakatan continues to praise Khalid as a good manager, but these are political statements.

    Khalid has also been unable to manage the different groups of stakeholders within Pakatan, witness the endless squabbling. Further, Khalid had led PKR Selangor to a poor showing in the 2013 elections. Under his leadership, PKR was left with 14 seats against the 15 of its coalition partners PAS and DAP.

    The lesson of Kedah must have been a factor in the calculations that led PKR to the decision to replace Khalid. The people will not hesitate to punish those who do not deliver. In the case of Kedah, PAS failed to act on the infighting within PAS Kedah. Development had come to a practical standstill as the other Pakatan partners appeared helpless to solve the problem.

    Yet Pakatan hubristically assumed that the people of Kedah would still vote for them. Such assumptions were proven wrong when Pakatan was roundly trounced in the 2013 elections.

    And so, perhaps, PKR has acted to put an end to the Selangor conundrum. 4 more years of lacklustre rule and infighting in Selangor will simply not do.

    Anwar in a class of his own

    The people of Kajang can look forward now to be served by Anwar Ibrahim, who will, denials notwithstanding, be their new Mentri Besar.

    Combined with the poor management of the economy by BN, Anwar can look forward to a much-improved majority in the coming by-election.

    And we can all look forward to having Anwar Ibrahim play the role of chief executive. For Umno, this is their nightmare scenario. Selangor, which Umno so desperately wants to regain, will be untouchable once Anwar becomes Mentri Besar.

    Meanwhile, some have argued that Anwar should not take the post of Mentri Besar as he is meant and has all the capabilities to be the new Prime Minister after the next election. Well then, why are we wasting the talents of such a man for four years? Jerry Brown was Governor of California, then mayor of Oakland, now he is Governor of California again at 75. Oakland has 400,00 residents and California has a population of 40 Million. And he is defeating the Californian budget deficit, where even the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, failed! The important principle, clearly, is to serve the people, not to be concerned with one’s personal status.

    Pakatan, and Anwar, have most certainly made the right move with this decision. They have shown that they can think out of the box. It cannot have been an easy one, and would not have been lightly made.

    Nevertheless, it is a wonder they did not think of this earlier! In business, this would be called a game-changer. Pakatan takes the initiative, BN is left stunned and defensive!

    And in Selangor, Anwar Ibrahim will surely deliver to us, finally, Camelot! – Malaysia Chronicle

    MB Khalid ‘NOT a capable or experienced politician’ – Rafizi

    PKR is willing to be rejected by voters in the Kajang by-election if the people feel that the party has manipulated the democratic process, said PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli.

    “Some have described our decision as toying with the democratic process. No. We are taking a big risk… It is democratic and it is also sadistic.

    “We are placing the fate of our number one man (Anwar Ibrahim) in the hands of angry Kajang voters. We have apologised and explained our action. But if our apology and explanation are insufficient, Anwar will be punished.

    “If you think this is a game, then reject us. We do not manipulate the system like Umno,” he stressed during a forum titled “Anwar: From Kajang to Putrajaya” yesterday.

    Choking on emotion, Rafizi said it was a painful but necessary decision.

    “It pains me because it was my idea to drag Anwar into this matter… But when this responsibility lands on your shoulder, what else can you do?” he asked.

    Rafizi explained that the move is to enable Pakatan Rakyat to battle Umno’s racial politics which is creating tension between the races as seen in the demonstrations in Penang.

    He added that similar incidents had happened in Selangor and the state demographics, which resembles that of Malaysia, needed the presence of a national politician who can handle such matters.

    “This is not about changing MBs for no reason and it has nothing to do with the internal politics of PKR. We realise that this game of politics and religion must be countered with a political game as well.

    “While we respect Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (the current menteri besar) and his administrative skills, it is clear that Khalid is not a capable or experienced politician who can face Umno’s racial and religious political games,” he added.

    Rafizi also explained that the announcement with regard to Anwar contesting the Kajang seat was made with the agreement of Pakatan although it had come as a surprise to many senior leaders.

    He said the discussions were held in secret and PKR did not manage how this secret dealings would be communicated to the leaders of Pakatan parties.

    According to Rafizi, PAS’ agreement was obtained via its secretary-general Mustafa Ali on Jan 24 while DAP’s green light was received on Jan 27.

    Meanwhile, social activist Hishammuddin Rais, who was also a panelist, supported the move for Anwar to become menteri besar.

    As a menteri besar, he said Anwar would be able to participate in the Conference of Rulers and speak on behalf of the 52 percent of Malaysians who voted for Pakatan.

    “If (Penang Chief Minister) Lim Guan Eng speaks about the Allah issue, nobody will listen. But if Anwar talks about it, that is a different ball game,” he added. – Mkini

    THE CORRIDORS OF POWER – NO HOLDS BARRED ARCHIVES
    What a whole load of bull! -January 31, 2014 -by Super Admin

    NO HOLDS BARRED – Raja Petra Kamarudin

    Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim is not a “skilled” enough politician to handle Barisan Nasional’s (BN) political onslaught, PKR’s Rafizi Ramli said last night as he defended his party’s decision to field Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the coming Kajang by-election.

    Speaking at a forum here, the chief engineer of the Kajang move said that while the embattled Khalid is known to be a popular technocrat, he was less stellar in his role as a politician.

    “We all know in Pakatan Rakyat (PR), attacks based on racial politics and religion must be countered with political games as well,” the PKR strategic director told a forum discussing the by-election here.

    “Although we have high respect for his administrative prowess, we have to also call a spade a spade: Khalid is not a skilled and experienced politician to face Umno’s racial and religious political games.” (The Malay Mail)

    *********************************************

    Rafizi was backed in the forum last night by political activist Hishamuddin Rais, who claimed that Anwar would be a better choice as a mentri besar, particularly as he would be able to better articulate the pact’s position on issues regarding race and religion.

    “If Anwar becomes an MB in this federalism system, then he will enter as MB into the conference of rulers, talking about land, religion,” said Hishamuddin.

    “Who else has better authority, better skills, the credibility, and international stature to say that we do not agree with the ‘Allah’ issue and land?” (The Malay Mail)

    ************************************************

    Those are the comments by Rafizi Ramli and Hishamuddin Rais, both friends of mine and Old Boys of the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK). Those are their views regarding Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim.

    Now allow me to give you my view. But this is going to be a very long story indeed.

    Pemodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB), which was launched on 17th March 1978, can be said to be amongst one of the more successful unit trusts. It was actually the brainchild of Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

    Khalid Ibrahim was appointed the General Manager and then the CEO of PNB from 1979 to 1994. For 15 years, Khalid expanded PNB to what it is today. And that was when I first met Khalid, more than 30 years ago.

    But first, let us talk about Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

    My father was a participant in the First Bumiputera Economic Congress of 4th June 1965. Contrary to what many believe, the move to improve the lot of the Malays was not the result of the 13th May 1969 race riots. This is what some politicians would like you to believe. That is not true at all. It started before that and 69 Resolutions were passed at that Congress.

    Because of this Congress, on 15th June 1965, the Deputy Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak Hussein, announced the formation of Bank Bumiputera, later called BBMB. It was headed by Mohd Raslan Dato’ Abdullah as Managing Director and Tengku Razaleigh as Executive Director.

    Tengku Razaleigh also headed Pernas, which was set up in November 1969, and Petronas, which was set up in September 1974.

    When Tun Razak died in 1976, Tun Hussein Onn took over as Prime Minister and Tengku Razaleigh was offered the post of Deputy Prime Minister. Tengku Razaleigh, however, declined the offer and told Tun Hussein to offer the post to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad instead. Tengku Razaleigh said he wanted to focus on his unfinished business of running the various banks and institutions that had been set up barely a few years before that. He was prepared to wait until Dr Mahathir took over as Prime Minister and then be would become the Deputy Prime Minister.

    Of course, when Dr Mahathir took over as Prime Minister in 1981, he did not appoint Tengku Razaleigh as his Deputy as promised but instead appointed Tun Musa Hitam. But that is another story and a story I have already written about many times before.

    If there were three people who needed to be credited with playing a prominent role in improving the lot of the Malay community it would be Tun Abdul Razak Hussein, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and Khalid Ibrahim. But not many Malaysians, especially those amongst the younger generation, are aware of all these developments over that decade from 1965 to 1975.

    Okay, now back to the issue of Khalid and PNB, the unit trust agency that he headed since its inception.

    In the beginning (in 1978/1979, when PNB was first set up) many of us refused to invest in the unit trusts that PNB launched. By then, of course, I was already a staunch PAS supporter and the reason we boycotted PNB’s unit trusts was because PAS and ABIM (which was headed by Anwar Ibrahim) told us that these unit trusts were haram.

    So we steered clear of the amanah saham that PNB launched because we believed that the profits we would be making was dirty money. This was what PAS and Anwar had told us and as good Muslims we did not want to make haram money.

    I admit, however, I eventually did invest in these amanah saham and I was glad I did so because that was the money I used to send my daughter to the UK to study and much later, in 2009, was the money I used to buy my home in Manchester. Without that money I would have not been able to give my daughter a UK university education or own a house.

    So PAS and Anwar actually condemned the government’s efforts to teach the Malays to invest their money in unit trusts so that many years in the future they would be able to educate their children and buy homes for themselves and so on.

    I am glad I listened to Khalid Ibrahim by investing my money in government run unit trusts instead of listening to Anwar and boycott these unit trusts. And because of that both my daughters received a UK university education and I now own a fully paid home in Manchester.

    Okay, that sounds like a long story but believe me I can make it even longer than that if I want to. But that is not want I really want to talk about today. That is only the introduction or mukadimah. What I really want to talk about is what Rafizi Ramli said last night.

    And what he said was, “We all know in Pakatan Rakyat, attacks based on racial politics and religion must be countered with political games as well.”

    Rafizi is much too young to remember that Anwar was the one who started this race and religion politics back in the 1970s. Anwar would go around the country telling the people that the Umno people are kafir (infidels). Those who dress like kafir by wearing coats and ties become kafir. Those who ape the kafir become kafir.

    Anwar would be dressed like an Arab and we too threw away our kafir clothes and started walking around dressed like Arabs. So who was the one who started all this religion politics in the first place? Today Rafizi laments about the problem. Does he not realise that Anwar started this problem in his ABIM days when he divided the Muslims into the kafir Muslims of Umno and the true Muslims of the opposition?

    So, yes, Malay politics is now the politics of Islam. And Rafizi is offering Anwar as the solution when he is the problem. Has Anwar ever apologised for labelling all those who dress like kafir and support Umno’s kafir politics of nationalism as kafir and then a few years later in 1982 he abandons the Islamists and joins the kafir political party?

    Then, when Anwar joined Umno in 1982, he made a bid for the Umno Youth leadership. And his campaign strategy was to condemn Suhaimi Kamaruddin, the then Youth Leader, as being too compromising and not militant enough.

    Anwar wanted the Ummo Youth Movement to return to the ‘glory days’ of the 1960s. And what do you think he meant by that? The glory days of the 1960s was when Umno Youth wanted to take back the country from the Chinese. The Malays are now hamba di negara sendiri (slaves in their own country), they argued. And this is because the Chinese have grabbed all the wealth of the country leaving the Malays with nothing.

    And why do you think they organised the First Bumiputera Economic Congress in 1965 that I talked about above? It was to address the grievances of the Malays and prevent a possible civil war, which happened anyway four years later in 1969 when the militants won the shouting match.

    So, in 1982, Anwar felt that Umno had become too soft over the years and people like Suhaimi cannot put the Chinese in their place and is too compromising with the Chinese and so on.

    And with that very militant and anti-Chinese stance, Anwar won the Umno Youth leadership hands down and Suhaimi the Chinese-lover was ousted. And from there Anwar took Umno Youth in the direction of being a party within a party that would make sure that the government does not give in to the Chinese.

    So what nonsense is Rafizi talking about? Yes, we do have a problem with race and religion politics but it was Anwar who propagated this and who planted this seed in Umno Youth. And now you are telling us that Anwar has a cure for this disease, which, in the first place, he spread?

    Hishamuddin Rais then says, “Anwar would be a better choice as a Mentri Besar, particularly as he would be able to better articulate the pact’s position on issues regarding race and religion.”

    Pray tell, what is Pakatan Rakyat’s position on race and religion that they want Anwar to articulate with the Rulers? Do tell us!

    Does he want the Rulers to agree that the Malay Bible must be allowed to say that Jesus is the son of Allah? Does he want Article 153 in the Federal Constitution to be removed? Does he want to open up ITM to the non-Malays and entry into the universities based on meritocracy and not based on quota (and the same with government posts, the police and military included)?

    We need details. Tell us what is wrong now and what — as the new Menteri Besar of Selangor — Anwar can do about it when he meets the Rulers during the Conference of Rulers.

    Anwar was in the government for 16 years from 1982 to 1998. He was also the Deputy Prime Minister for some years and met the Rulers both inside and outside the Conference of Rulers. In fact, I have personally witnessed Anwar phoning a couple of the Sultans. Hence Anwar could just pick up the phone and make a phone call to the Rulers.

    Did Anwar articulate his views then when he was the Deputy Prime Minister and successor-in-waiting to Dr Mahathir? And if not, why? And if he did not do that when he was at the pinnacle of power why and how would he do that now when he is merely a Menteri Besar?

    This is a whole load of bullshit.

    The Malays are better off today because of the First Bumiputera Economic Congress of 4th June 1965 (which my father was a participant in). This Congress that passed 69 Resolutions spawned various agencies, PNB amongst them (which was headed by Khalid). Without all this most Malays would still be fishermen and farmers.

    I know that, along the way, some people abused this to get rich through government contracts, monopolies, APs, etc. But that is being done by less than 1% of those Malays who walk in the corridors of power. The other 99% of the Malays are not crooks.

    Are we going to condemn all the Chinese just because 1,000 Chinese joined Chin Peng’s CPM army in the jungles? Why should the action of less than 1% of the Chinese be blamed on 100% of the Chinese? There are many more Chinese who did not support Communist Terrorism, as there are many more Malays who did not choose the crooked way to become rich.

    The trouble is, Malaysians hate reading. And they hate studying history even more. But if you did read, and if you read history, then you will know that the perjuangan to improve the lot of the Malays started back in 1965 and not after May 13 in 1969.

    And it was people like Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and Khalid Ibrahim (plus many more, my father included) who contributed to this effort and people like Anwar Ibrahim who tried to torpedo this effort by declaring that what the government is doing is haram and that we should boycott it and not support it.

    And today you offer us Anwar as the saviour when it was he who tried to sabotage the whole thing? Pleeeez.

    The Malaysian Insider – Saturday, 01 February 2014 Last Update: 11:20am

    PKR continues to defend Kajang move, says good for electoral democracy

    The use of elections to obtain political advantage strengthens electoral democracy, said PKR in justifying the so-called ‘Kajang move’ which will see its top leader contesting for a state seat.

    Its vice-president N. Surendran hit out at criticisms of the plan as “poorly reasoned”, saying critics lacked an understanding of party and electoral politics.

    “Elections are the bedrock of the political strategy of parties in any modern democracy.

    “It is the right of the political party to go back to the people as part of a political strategy, whether in a by-election or wider national elections,” said the Padang Serai MP.

    On Monday, PKR’s Lee Chin Cheh resigned as the Kajang state assemblyman, and immediately fuelled speculation of Anwar taking over the Menteri Besar post from Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

    The move has however not sat well with the public, with many saying it was a waste of public funds to force a by-election in order to deal with the rivalry between Khalid and Selangor PKR chief Azmin Ali.

    But PKR has been defending the Kajang move as a “tactical move” to fortify Selangor and make it a launchpad for Pakatan Rakyat to take over Putrajaya.

    Surendran (pic) argued that forcing by-elections has been a practice in “mature democracies”, citing the example of British MP David Davis who in 2008 resigned from the House of Commons to force a by-election in order to focus on civil liberties.

    “Contrary to what the critics say, there is nothing underhanded or dirty in forcing a by-election as a political strategy.

    “Those who lament over the costs of the by-election fail to understand that there are unavoidable costs inherent in a functioning democracy. Their focus should be on clean elections, and not a cheap democracy.”

    He went on to say that the use of elections as a political strategy should be “nurtured and encouraged” as it was a “superb way” for the people to have their say and this, according to Surendran, would strengthen the spirit democracy.

    “Pakatan Rakyat wants to gain strength through the legitimate use of the electoral system; this in contrast to the BN which undermines elections, and uses executive power to oppress and persecute dissent in order to hold on to power,” he added, citing Article 51 of the Federal Constitution which allowed elected reps to resign without conditions or qualifications.

    “The critics appear to have lost sight of the words and spirit of the Federal Constitution which contemplates and allows for situations like this. Article 51 is worded in order to permit by-elections as a political strategy

    “This is also a political strategy to help beat the corrupt and oppressive BN coalition, and consign them eventually to the trash heap of history,” he added. – February 1, 2014.
    ____________________
    But Surendran, what strength are you aiming to gain from this Kajang by election?

    PKR has repeatedly said that you have a superb MB in placed already in Selangor. Isn’t Datuk Khalid PKR bedrock of the Selangor government?

    What gain in strength can PKR hope to get by undermining Datuk Khalid?

    Muslim, Christian Communities Should Understand Law Before Kalimah Allah Debate – Former Judge

    By S. Chandravathani

    KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 31 (Bernama) — To maintain peace and harmony among the people, Muslim and Christian communities should not continuously debate on the controversial ‘Kalimah Allah’ issue.

    In making this call, former Court of Appeal judge Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah said this was because both Muslim and Christian groups neither understood nor were well-versed with state and federal laws.

    He said provisions in the Federal Constitution allowed a Muslim to preach the teachings of his religion among non-Muslims, while a non-Muslim was permitted to preach the teachings of his religion or beliefs among people or followers of other faiths, with the expection of Muslims.

    He noted Article 11 of the Federal Constitution stated that every individual had the right to profess, practise and preach his religion or belief.

    “However, Article 11 (4) of the same constitution states that the propagation of non-Islamic religions among Muslims is forbidden.

    “Therefore, Article 11(4) has given the state authority through the State Legislature to enact laws to control the propagation of non-Islamic religions or beliefs to Muslims,” he told Bernama at Menara Felda here.

    Mohd Noor said this meant that a state government had the authority to restrict the propagation of any religion, creed, ideology or even belief that represented partially non-Islamic teaching in any form.

    Explaining further, he said Section 9 (1) of the Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Amongst Muslims) Enactment 1988 of Selangor prohibited any non-Muslim from using, in writing or in speech, any of 25 words as stated in Part 1 of the Schedule, pertaining to a non-Islamic religion.

    “A person commits an offence if using the word, Allah and other Arabic words namely Firman Allah, Ulama, Hadith, Ibadah, Kaabah, Kadi, Ilahi, Wahyu, Mubaligh, Syariah, Qiblat, Haj, Mufti, Rasul, Iman, Dakwah, Injil, Salat, Khalifah, Wali, Fatwa, Imam, Nabi and Sheikh,” he said.

    Section 9 (2) also prohibits a non-Muslim from using 10 expressions of Islamic origin set out in Part II of the Schedule, including Alhamdulillah, Insyallah, Allahu Akbar, Astaghfirllahal Amin and Masya Allah.

    Apart from section 9, Mohd Noor said the Selangor Enactment also made it an offence for any non-Muslim to: influence or incite any Muslim to change his faith (Section 4); subject any Muslim minor to influences of a non-Islamic religion (Section 5).

    Others are: approaching any Muslim to subject him to any speech on or display of any matter concerning a non-Islamic religion (Section 6); send or deliver any publication concerning any non-Islamic religion to a Muslim (Section 7); and distribute in a public place any publication concerning a non-Islamic religion to a Muslim (Section 8).

    Mohd Noor said to date, 10 states had passed similar enactments with almost identical provisions, except for the penalties, words and expressions.

    He cited that Kelantan had imposed the most stringent punishment, which included mandatory whipping for all offences while the Johor State Enactment did not contain any schedule, but it imposed a blanket ban on the use of any “words of Islamic origin”.

    “In other words, by law, certain words and expressions belong exclusively to the Islamic religion. There is no problem if such words are indeed, not used by other religions.

    “Therefore, the Selangor Enactment does not create syariah offences but civil offences, which means the case will be tried in civil courts and not syariah courts, which have jurisdiction only on Muslims,” he said.

    Mohd Noor also noted that religious matters which fell under the jurisdiction of the states, must be dealt with utmost sensitivity, so that no action hurt the feelings of any race in the country.

    “That is why the Cabinet comes up with the 10-point-solution, which had allowed Christians to use ‘Allah’ in the Bahasa Malaysia Bible. It also allows bibles in all languages to, not only be imported into the country, but to be printed locally in the peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak,” he said.

    The ‘Allah’ controversy dates back to a 2009 High Court ruling which upheld the Catholic Church’s constitutional right to use the word in the Bahasa Malaysia section of its weekly, The Herald.

    The issue resurfaced early this month, following a raid by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department at the Bible Society of Malaysia (BSM), seizing some 300 copies of Malay and Iban-language Bibles and detaining two BSM officials.

    Tensions, especially between Christian and Muslim communities, have simmered following the Oct 14 ruling last year by the Court of Appeal, on the usage of the word, ‘Allah’ in the Bahasa version of The Herald. The ruling was seen as a ban on the word ‘Allah’ to all non-Muslims.

    The legal dispute between the government and the Catholic Church is still pending before the Federal Court, which will hear the case on March 5.

    Meanwhile, Umno Youth Exco and Islamic scholar Dr Fathul Bari Mat stressed missionary or Islamic teachings should fulfill three criteria, namely Constitution, Islamic law (‘hukum Islam’) and local sensitivities, respectively.

    “Although no one can be stopped from exercising fundamental rights, they still have options. For Islam, we have no choice expect to use the word, ‘Allah’, but for Christians, they can opt using ‘Lord’ or God’ or ‘Jesus’ to depict their God.

    “But in this case, they insist in using the word, ‘Allah’ which had misled the Muslims and caused sensitivities and disharmony among the Muslim community,” he said.

    He also cited India’s Supreme Court decision to uphold a ban imposed by the Gujarat state government on the slaughter of cows in 2005, and was of the view that Malaysians too, should stay away from highly sensitive issues so as not to hurt the feelings, beliefs and practices of others.

    Masyarakat Islam, Kristian Perlu Faham Undang-undang Sebelum Bahas Kalimah Allah – Bekas Hakim

    KUALA LUMPUR, 31 Jan (Bernama) — Bagi memelihara keamanan dan keharmonian dalam kalangan rakyat, masyarakat Islam dan Kristian perlu berhenti daripada berbahas tentang isu kalimah Allah.

    Ketika menyuarakan saranan itu, bekas hakim Mahkamah Rayuan Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah berkata ini kerana kebanyakan kumpulan Islam dan Kristian tidak memahami atau tidak mahir tentang undang-undang negeri dan persekutuan.

    Menurutnya peruntukkan dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan membenarkan orang Islam menyebarkan ajaran agamanya kepada bukan Islam, manakala orang bukan Islam pula dibenarkan menyebarkan agama atau kepercayaannya kepada orang atau pengikut agama lain, kecuali kepada orang Islam.

    Beliau berkata Perkara 11 Perlembagaan Persekutuan menyatakan bahawa setiap individu berhak menganut, mengamalkan dan menyebarkan agama atau kepercayaan masing-masing.

    “Bagaimanapun, Perkara 11 (4) perlembagaan itu menyebut bahawa penyebaran agama orang bukan Islam dalam kalangan orang Islam adalah dilarang.

    “Ini bermakna, Perkara 11(4) memberi kuasa kepada negeri melalui badan perundangan negeri untuk menggubal undang-undang bagi mengawal penyebaran agama atau kepercayaan bukan Islam kepada orang Islam,” katanya kepada Bernama di Menara Felda di sini.

    Mohd Noor berkata ini bererti sesebuah kerajaan negeri mempunyai kuasa untuk menyekat penyebaran mana-mana agama, akidah, ideologi atau malah kepercayaan yang mengandungi walaupun sedikit ajaran bukan Islam dalam sebarang bentuk.

    Beliau seterusnya menjelaskan bahawa Seksyen 9 (1) Enakmen Agama Bukan Islam (Kawalan Pengembangan Dalam Kalangan Orang Islam) Selangor 1988 melarang orang bukan Islam daripada menggunakan dalam penulisan atau ucapan, mana-mana daripada 25 perkataan yang terkandung dalam Bahagian 1 Jadual berkaitan agama bukan Islam.

    “Seseorang bukan Islam didapati melakukan kesalahan sekiranya dia menggunakan perkataan Allah dan perkataan Arab lain seperti Firman Allah, Ulama, Hadith, Ibadah, Kaabah, Kadi, Ilahi, Wahyu, Mubaligh, Syariah, Qiblat, Haji, Mufti, Rasul, Iman, Dakwah, Injil, Salat, Khalifah, Wali, Fatwa, Imam, Nabi dan Sheikh,” katanya.

    Seksyen 9 (2) juga melarang orang bukan Islam daripada menggunakan 10 kalimah berasal daripada agama Islam seperti yang ditetapkan di dalam Bahagian II Jadual berkenaan, termasuk Alhamdulillah, Insya-Allah, Allahu Akbar, Astaghfirullahal Azim dan Masya Allah.

    Di samping Seksyen 9, Mohd Noor berkata Enakmen Selangor itu juga mendapati adalah menjadi kesalahan bagi seseorang bukan Islam apabila di: mempengaruhi atau menghasut seseorang Islam supaya menukar agamanya (Seksyen 4); menyebabkan seseorang Islam bawah umur terpengaruh dengan agama bukan Islam (Seksyen 5).

    Perbuatan lain yang menjadi kesalahan ialah: mengajak orang Islam mendengar ucapan tentang atau melihat pameran tentang sebarang perkara berkaitan agama bukan Islam (Seksyen 6); mengirim atau menyampaikan sebarang penerbitan berkaitan agama bukan Islam kepada seseorang Islam (Seksyen 7); dan menyebar di tempat awam sebarang penerbitan berkaitan agama bukan Islam kepada orang Islam (Seksyen 8).

    Mohd Noor berkata setakat ini, 10 negeri meluluskan enakmen serupa yang mempunyai peruntukan hampir sama, kecuali dari segi hukuman, perkataan dan ungkapan.

    Kata beliau Kelantan mengenakan hukuman paling berat, termasuk sebatan mandatori bagi semua kesalahan, manakala Enakmen Negeri Johor pula, walaupun tidak mengandungi sebarang Jadual, tetapi mengenakan larangan menyeluruh tentang penggunaan sebarang kalimah berasal daripada agama Islam.

    “Dalam kata-kata lain, secara undang-undang, kalimah dan ungkapan tertentu ini menjadi milik eksklusif agama Islam.

    Tidak akan menjadi masalah sekiranya kalimah berkenaan tidak langsung digunakan oleh agama lain.

    “Enakmen Selangor tidak menyebut tentang kesalahan syariah, tetapi kesalahan sivil, yang bermakna, sesuatu kes itu akan dibicarakan di mahkamah sivil, bukan di mahkamah syariah, yang bidang kuasanya hanya meliputi orang Islam,” kata beliau.

    Mohd Noor berkata perkara berkaitan agama yang termasuk di bawah bidang kuasa negeri, perlu ditangani dengan paling sensitif agar sebarang tindakan yang diambil, tidak melukai perasaan mana-mana kaum di negara ini.

    “Itulah sebabnya Kabinet menganjurkan penyelesaian 10 Perkara, yang membenarkan orang Kristian menggunakan ‘Allah’ dalam Bible Bahasa Malaysia. Ia juga membenarkan Bible dalam semua bahasa, bukan setakat diimport ke negara ini, malah dicetak di Semenanjung, Sabah dan Sarawak,” katanya.

    Kontroversi berhubung kalimah Allah tercetus daripada keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi pada 2009, yang mengekalkan hak gereja Katolik dari segi perlembagaan untuk menggunakan perkataan itu dalam seksyen bahasa Malaysia penerbitan majalah mingguannya, ‘The Herald’.’

    Isu ini timbul semula awal bulan ini apabila Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (JAIS) menyerbu Bible Society of Malaysia (BSM) dan merampas kira-kira 300 naskhah Bible dalam bahasa Melayu dan Iban serta menahan dua pegawai BSM.

    Ketegangan, khususnya antara masyarakat Islam dan Kristian, reda apabila pada 14 Okt tahun lepas, Mahkamah Rayuan membuat keputusannya tentang penggunaan kalimah Allah dalam seksyen bahasa Malaysia, ‘The Herald’. Keputusan itu dilihat sebagai melarang penggunaan kalimah Allah oleh semua orang bukan Islam.

    Keputusan mengenai pertikaian undang-undang antara kerajaan dan Gereja Katolik masih tertangguh di Mahkamah Persekutuan, yang mendengar kes itu pada 5 Mac ini.

    Sementara itu, Exco Pemua Umno dan cendekiawan Islam Dr Fathul Bari Mat menegaskan bahawa gerakan dakwah atau usaha menyebarkan ajaran Islam perlu mematuhi tiga kriteria iaitu Perlembagaan, hukum Islam dan sensitiviti masyarakat tempatan.

    “Walaupun tiada siapa boleh disekat daripada menunaikan hak asasinya, mereka masih mempunyai pilihan.

    Bagi orang Islam, kami tidak mempunyai pilihan selain daripada menggunakan kalimah Allah, tapi bagi orang Kristian, mereka boleh memilih sama ada menggunakan ‘Lord’ atau God’ atau ‘Jesus’ bagi merujuk kepada Tuhan mereka.

    “Bagaimanapun, dalam kes ini, mereka bertegas untuk menggunakan kalimah Allah, yang telah mengelirukan umat Islam dan menimbulkan suasana sensitif serta tidak harmoni dalam kalangan masyarakat Islam,” katanya.

    Beliau merujuk kepada keputusan Mahkamah Agung India yang mengekalkan larangan yang dikenakan kerajaan negeri Gujarat terhadap penyembelihan lembu pada 2005 dan berpendapat rakyat Malaysia juga perlu mengelak daripada melukai perasaan, kepercayaan dan amalan satu sama lain.

    Jakim’s anti-Christian sermon goes against Najib’s reconciliation initiative – WHY IS THIS? Written by Lim Kit Siang

    The Friday sermon of the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) yesterday saying that the division among Muslims is not only caused by a weak faith but also because of the instigation of Christians and Jews is a triple regret as it goes against:

    The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Cabinet’s positive response at its Cabinet meeting on 29th January 2014 to the Pakatan Rakyat’s olive branch reiterated by PR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on Sunday for a Barisan Nasional-Pakatan Rakyat Leaders’ Summit on national reconciliation to check worsening national situation in the country, in particular the worst racial and religious polarization in the nation’s history as a result of incessant incitement of racial and religious hatred, conflict and tension by a small group of reckless and irresponsible persons bent on destabilizing the country through lies and falsehoods, even to create another May 13;

    Najib’s advocacy of Wasatiyyah (moderation in Arabic) as important policy in ASEAN and world conduct of nations – affecting not only Islam but also in respect of all other faiths; and

    Let’s us pick up their gauntlet and go all out to teach the gay guy and all others who challenge UMNO, that UMNO will fight.

    I am sure Datuk Seri Reezal Merican is itching to get into the thick of the fight. Dr. Mahathir when he was President of UMNO would have fought.

    Whatever STL says here is true. . The Rakyat will give the verdict. Not that the Rakyat don’t know of DSAI shortcomings. The frustrattion and anger against BN UMNO outshine those of DSAI and Pakatan shortcomings. The By election is going to be a great movie. At the end of the day DSAI will win.

    Tan Sri Khalid,

    They said your performance is sterling, of gold standard and already stellar. But yet they treat you like a dog and call you mamak kedai curut dan macam pisang.

    Can PKR be trusted?

    Sultan does NOT have absolute power over MB post – law expert debunks Umno-linked claims

    Sultan does NOT have absolute power over MB post – law expert debunks Umno-linked claims

    Sultans do not have absolute power to appoint the menteri besar, as they are now constitutional monarches says constitutional law expert Abdul Aziz Bari.

    Abdul Aziz was responding to former Court of Appeal judge Mohd Noor Abdullah ‘s statement yesterday that the Selangor sultan has absolute power in deciding on who should lead the state as MB, based on Article 51 of the Selangor state constitution 1959.

    In debunking Mohd Noor’s position, the former Law professor from the International Islamic University said the position cited by the former judge was prior to the Federation of Malaya agreement in 1948.

    “The Sultan of Selangor has absolute power on two matters and can make a decision without any advice, that is, in the selection of the MB and secondly, in the dissolution of the State Legislative Assembly.

    “In making a decision on these two matters, the sultan does not have to act on the advice of anyone,” Mohd Noor was quoted as saying.

    Abdul Aziz however said historians have noted that Umno has started to put pressure in the rulers – whom they claimed were saved by the party during the Malayan Union of 1946 – to appoint MBs from among their leaders.

    “The constitutional regime laid down by the Reid Commission became operational in 1959 after the first state elections together with the 1959 parliamentary elections,” he added.

    His statement follows speculation that opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s intention to contest in the Kajang by-election following the resignation of Lee Chin Cheh, could pave the way for Anwar to be the next MB replacing incumbent Khalid Ibrahim.

    The law is not clear and possibly contentious.

    But I would like to see how PKR is going to enforce or contravene something that is decided by Tuanku Sultan if that decision is not in PKR favor.

    With the police and the army possibly also against PKR.

    SURE & ALTANTUYA WASN’T NAJIB’S MISTRESS! Umno to highlight Anwar’s ‘sex issues’ – Ahmad Maslan

    BN will highlight Anwar Ibrahim’s alleged sexual issues to expose voters to “the truth” about the opposition leader in the lead up to the Kajang by-election.

    Umno information chief Ahmad Maslan said that voters are being “deceived” as Anwar, who is Pakatan Rakyat’s candidate in the coming polls, is giving them the perception that he is free from any such cases.

    “His sodomy case with (his former aide) Mohd Saiful (Bukhari Azlan) and his video case … so the Kajang voters must be told about these.

    “The perception that he has already been acquitted is not verified by the appellate court and the Federal court.

    “There is nothing wrong for us to talk about Anwar Ibrahim (left) so that Kajang voters can pick someone who is really suitable to be their assemblyperson,” he said.

    The hearing of the prosecution’s appeal over Anwar’s acquittal will be heard on Feb 12 and 13 while Anwar’s appeal to remove Muhammad Shafee Abdullah from leading the prosecution will be heard on Feb 11 at the Federal Court.

    On the video allegation, Ahmad is believed to have referred to the ‘Datuk T’ video shown to several journalists in March 2011. Anwar has already denied it was him in it.

    The same tune playing again and again and again with the needle stuck in the same grove in the record. This is moral and intellectual bankruptcy. KAJANG will once again put on display and playback the dearth of Barisan’s electoral issues. This will remind the people what kind of federal government we have. And all the GE13 broken campaign promises. They think that since GE13 is over they could do what they like. Even parliament question time is taken lightly. Suddenly they will have to face up to a barrage of questions and that too from AI, the one political leader they dread most. This is the bonus of the by-election. NOW Barisan cannot choose to stay silent on the critical issues that we the people care about: fundamental liberties, price hikes,the national economy, auditor-general’s reports… NOW with the by-election the needle that is stuck will be released to play on. NOW we will get to hear Barisan’s explanation. You bluff us at your own peril!

      Nah, we are going to stay silent on the critical issues that the people care about: fundamental liberties, price hikes, the national economy, auditor-general’s reports and similar boring topics.

      We are however going to focus on the Allah issue, what the super ego is doing in term of using the Allah issue to generate animosity between the East Malaysian Bumiputeras and the Malays, the top gay guy MB sex life, how the gay guy and the fellatio in the toilet deputy is trying to kick out TS Khalid so that they can get access to the 3 billion over reserve.

      Also the queen of religious freedom marriage, her hot love affair, the cop ear biter hatred for the police including putting down the police during the Lahad Datu incident.

      All the kurang ajar and biadap stuff that the DAP and the Chinese are doing against the Malays, how PAS leaders are too weak to stand to the super ego and the DAP on the Allah issue even though their top ulamas like almalhum Datuk Harun Taib dan Datuk Dr Harun Din are very much against it.

      How Father Lawrence Andrew has declared that the Catholic will continue to use the Allah among the Chinese/ DAP Christians in Peninsular Malaysia come rain or shine.

      How the kurang ajar Lee of Penang stuff the kangkung into DS Najib face, how the super ego insulted Johor, 40,000 Bangladeshi who the top gay guys said were brought in by AirAsia to vote in the last election, the Black Night protect that Haris ABU and Chegu Bard organize to bring down the government by street protect etc.

      You, know, all the usual good stuff.

    Anwar is the last chance Malaysia has to fight for Justice and Fairness for all, as he has always done. he is a tested Mlaysian and International Leader. He and his family have gone through and are still going through incredible torture! He is a shock absorber. he fought then PM for his rights, he went to jail on trumped up charges, emerged from personal and mental fatigue to continue the fight for Reformasi. He united the Opposition parties with different ideologies and led it to 53 pct support of the Rakyat in the last GE. He could have enjoyed himself, if he was such cheap character, by taking a Blank Cheque which was offered to him and then resigning as Deputy PM. He defied all threats by his Boss who manipulated all pawns to shut Anwar in Jail! ALLAH is with DSAI. That is why he has risen up from his grave. KAJANG VOTERS MUST GIVE HIM FULL SUPPORT. CURSE BE TO THE CRUEL FORCES attacking him without any FEAR OF GOD ALMIGHTY! DSAI, ALLAH will protect you for your sacrifices.

    Just read update court verdict happen to him. How far can Anwar Ibrahim go being selfish toward his court case? Food for thought I don’t think he can wiggle his way to freedom after delay his court case, missing in action at court and appeal too many time wonder will those appeal team grew tired of his shenanigans. He’s just a high level psychopath con artist who lies all along. No wonder how can there be a great discount on Kajang food without food vendors lose their profit margin.
