Keadilan Untuk Allahyarham Sa'aid & Adik Ahmad Nizamudin

Posted: 17 Feb 2011 09:43 AM PST



Dipersilakan setiap rakyat Malaysia membaca kesah sebenar berkenaan kematian Allahyarham Saaid dan penembakan ke atas adik Ahmad Nizamudin.

Blogger UMNO, "rbfonline" juga ada buat artikel untuk membela kerajaan. Namun, "rbfonline" ini blog penipu. Buktinya: sehingga hari ini sumpah laknat Tulang Besi ke atas beliau TIDAK BERJAWAB.

Mangsa tembakan kempen guna Facebook
Harakahdaily


TUMPAT, 17 Feb: Satu laman peminat Facebook atas nama 'Keadilan Untuk Allahyarham Sa'aid & Adik Ahmad Nizamudi'n dibuka dipercayai berkaitan kematian seorang lelaki dan anak saudaranya yang ditembak pegawai Unit Pencegah Penyeludupan (UPP) Pengkalan Kubor semalam.

Sehingga berita ini ditulis, laman Facebook yang meletakkan gambar kad pengenalan mangsa sebagai gambar profil itu kini mempunyai 1,329 pengikut.

Bagaimanapun tiada sebarang maklumat terperinci mengenai pengendali dan laman tersebut disertakan.

Melihat kepada entri terawalnya yang dimasukkan pada jam 4.08 pagi tadi, laman itu dipercayai baru dibuat hari ini.

Semalam, Ahmad Nizamuddin Mohamad, 19, cedera parah selepas terkena dua tembakan di rusuk kanan yang dilepaskan pegawai UPP yang didakwa ingin mempertahankan diri.

Nizamuddin ditembak selepas didakwa menyerang empat anggota UPP di perkarangan Hospital Tumpat ekoran salah faham berhubung punca kematian bapa saudaranya, Said Mat Hassan, 56.

Menurut Ketua Polis Kelantan, Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi, Sa'aid ditemui empat anggota UPP dalam sebuah kereta Kancil di tepi jalan di Kampung Wakaf Tin di sini pada jam 7.45 pagi dalam keadaan lemah, berwajah pucat serta mulutnya berbuih.

Katanya, anggota UPP itu turut menemui 20 guni beras siam dalam kereta berkenaan.

Menurutnya, melihat keadaan Sa'aid yang tenat, anggota UPP membawanya ke Hospital Tumpat untuk mendapat rawatan. Said disahkan meninggal dunia sebaik tiba di hospital itu.

Bagaimanapun, khabar angin yang sampai ke pengetahuan ahli keluarganya termasuk Nizamuddin mengatakan Sa'aid meninggal dunia akibat dibelasah anggota UPP menyebabkan mereka bertindak menyerang penguat kuasa berkenaan pada pukul 9.20 pagi.

Ekoran tembakan itu, Nizamuddin dibawa ke Hospital Tumpat untuk mendapatkan rawatan, bagaimanapun dia terpaksa dirujuk ke Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II (HRPZ II) di Kota Baharu kerana keadaannya yang parah.

Sementara itu, dipihak keluarga Allahyarham pula mempunyai versi berbeza berhubung kejadian tersebut.

Menurut mereka, kematian mangsa akibat dipukul dengan teruk oleh empat anggota UPP terbabit.

Penjelasan versi keluarga itu juga turut dimuatkan dalam entri Facebook tersebut.

"Saksi (anak saudara mangsa) yang menyaksikan kejadian pukul hingga mati Allahyarham Sa'aid ditembak sebanyak 2 das tembakan.

"Sebutir peluru mengenai bahagian dada kanan dan sebutir peluru lagi mengenai perut sebelah kiri mangsa. kejadian berlaku sejam selepas Allahyarham Sa'aid di pukul sehingga mati," entri dalam facebook itu dipetik.

Anak sulung Allahyarham, Nik Suriani Sa'aid ketika ditemui Harakahdaily di kediamannya semalam turut melahirkan rasa kecewa dengan apa yang menimpa keluarganya.

Lebih mengecewakan ekoran bapanya dituduh penyeludup beras terbesar di Malaysia itu seperti dilapor beberapa media.

"Saya mahu keadilan diberikan kepada keluarga saya, bersihkan nama baik keluarga saya.

"Buktikan bapa saya penyeludup beras terbesar Malaysia, sedangkan beras yang dibawanya tidak sampai pun RM700 nilainya," katanya.

Husam minta siasat

Kelmarin, kerajaan dan Polis Diraja Malaysia diminta menyiasat lebih terperinci berhubung kes kematian seorang peniaga beras, allahyarham
Said Mat Hassan, 56, termasuk anak saudaranya yang cedera parah terkena tembakan, Ahmad Nizamudi'n, 19.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Perancangan Ekonomi, Kewangan dan Kebajikan Negeri, Datuk Husam Musa, berkata rakyat serta keluarga mangsa ingin
mengetahui punca sebenar kejadian sehingga berlakunya kematian serta tembakan terhadap Riduan.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada Harakahdaily ketika melakukan lawatan ke atas keluarga mangsa di Unit Forensik Hospital Daerah, Tumpat di
sini malam tadi.

Terdahulu beliau mengunjungi keluarga allahyarham di Kampung Bendang Pak Yong, dekat sini untuk mengucapkan takziah kepada keluarga
terbabit di atas apa yang berlaku.

Husam seterusnya berharap kerajaan melakukan siasatan secara adil serta tidak melindungi mana-mana pesalah dalam kejadian itu.

"Kita juga kesal bagaimana ianya boleh berlaku sehingga mengakibatkan kematian dengan kesalahan hanya menyeludup beras.

"Seorang lagi mangsa ditembak dua das hanya kerana tindakan 'hilang sabar' akibat trauma berhubung kejadian yang menimpa keluarga
mereka,"ujarnya.

Menurut Husam perkara itu (seludup beras) memang salah disisi undang-undang, namun amat tidak wajar mereka dihukum sedemikian.

Kejadian dikatakan berlaku kira-kira pukul 8.30 pagi setelah mangsa keluar dari rumah untuk meneruskan kerja hariannya sejak sekian lama
dengan berniaga beras.

Bapa mentua mangsa, Shafie Che Tah, 69, ketika ditemui berkata bagaimanapun menantunya itu akhirnya ditangkap polis Unit Pencegah
Penyeludupan (UPP).

"Dia dipukul hingga pengsan dan dipercayai meninggal dunia selepas itu. Anak saudara allahyarham (Riduan) pula mengamuk apabila melihat
sekumpulan UPP datang ke hospital.

"Saya diberitahu dia ditembak dua das dari pihak UPP dalam pergelutan itu,"ujarnya ketika ditemui.

Riduan kini dirawat di Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab ll, Kota Bharu.


Wasn't Me Again!!

Posted: 17 Feb 2011 08:08 AM PST

Ladies and gentlemen: Bring out the popcorn. The Punch & Judy show is on again, starring The Loony Tun and his running dog.

The first episode began with Ops Lalang and the mastermind behind it. Unbeknownst to the world (much less the nation) the mastermind had had his powers usurped by the cops.

Oh yes, only in Malaysia.

Today, we discover that the draconian Internal Security Act, popularly known as the ISA was almost scrapped, except the damned cops beat the crap out of The Loony Tun and left him crying in a corner.

Someone ought to do something about these cops.

Seriously, I heard that The Loony Tun was in the process of eliminating poverty and famine in Africa. But guess who stopped him in his tracks?

You've guessed it! It was the damned cops!!!

The Loony Tun was just about to stop the Chernobyl nuclear disaster which caused massive damage and widespread disease in the region. But it was the damn cops at their dirty tricks again.

In fact, The Loony Tun was on his way to receiving his Nobel Peace Prize award for creating peace between Israel and Palestine when he was stopped. No prizes for guessing by whom.

Oh wait. Israel and Palestine didn't quite work out. But it was only because The Loony Tun was held up in a traffic jam caused by the cops who set up a police blockade. Otherwise, peace was just around the corner, I'm telling ya!

Those damned cops - what a menace to every self-respecting, God-fearing, mother-loving citizen of this nation!

Melihat Mesir dari teori anjakan makna

Posted: 17 Feb 2011 03:37 AM PST

oleh RAHMAN SHAARI
2/8/2011 7:13:23 AM

Memikirkan perlawanan rakyat di Mesir, apakah fikiran kita di sini? Pihak kerajaan berfikir lain, pembangkang berfikir lain pula. Pembicara politik tentulah ada pelbagai pandangan. Kerajaan berfikir, eloklah berbaik-baik dengan rakyat sendiri, pergi ke ceruk-ceruk melawat mereka. Kita dahulukan rakyat dalam erti sebenar-benarnya.

Pilihan raya hendaklah dijalankan dengan adil dan telus. Jangan ada penipuan dan lowongan yang menyebabkan orang menyangka ada penipuan dalam pilihan raya. Seterusnya rakyat jangan dibiarkan menanggung derita. Jika sesuatu akan menyusahkan rakyat, misalnya kenaikan harga minyak – andai kata itu tidak dapat dielakkan – kerajaan hendaklah awal-awal lagi menyatakannya kepada rakyat. Jangan sampai rakyat terperanjat dan marah.

Kerajaan mungkin tidak terlalu bimbang ketika ini. Tunjuk perasaan yang gah, iaitu keluarnya rakyat dalam jumlah amat besar seperti berlaku di Mesir, tidak syak lagi ia akibat rasa tertekan yang lama. Rakyat di sana menghimpun rasa tidak puas hati kepada kerajaan. Itu tidak mungkin kejadian yang tiba-tiba, sebaliknya berada lama di bahagian subconscious rakyat, secara archetypal. Jika kerajaan merasakan itu adalah tiba-tiba, bererti kerajaan tidak pernah membuat pemeriksaan tentang rasa hati rakyat, dan juga bermakna kerajaan tidak memikirkan rakyat.

Pihak pembangkang pula melihat peristiwa di Mesir sebagai satu peluang. Pembangkang yang mencintai parti politik mereka tidak gemar jika rakyat bangkit seperti berlaku di Mesir. Jutaan manusia di Mesir hanya menimbulkan chaos (keadaan kacau), membolehkan kerajaan mengisytiharkan darurat. Pilihan raya tiada. Itu tidaklah berfaedah bagi pembangkang.

Dari sudut pembangkang, kebangkitan yang bagus dan berfaedah ialah yang akan mengubah corak pengundian dalam pilihan raya. Pembangkang menunggu kebangkitan yang sedemikian, kerana itu ialah tanda berubahnya definisi rakyat terhadap demokrasi kita. Di Mesir, Hosni Mubarak menjanjikan pembaharuan, tetapi tidak mahu meletakkan jawatan. Penunjuk perasaan yang ramai itu mahukan beliau meletakkan jawatan segera, bukan menunggu berbulan-bulan lagi. Di Malaysia, kita tidak menuntut sesiapa meletakkan jawatan, cuma pihak pembangkang berharap mereka akan menang dalam pilihan raya nanti. Secara umumnya pembangkang mahu ketua mereka akan menjadi Perdana Menteri yang baru, walaupun sejauh ini yang dikehendaki pembangkang ialah orang lama juga, iaitu mantan Timbalan Perdana Menteri. Oleh itu, dapat dikatakan kehendak pembangkang Malaysia tidaklah terlalu jauh.

Pengkritik kerajaan yang berjiwa progresif mahu melihat peristiwa di Mesir itu berlaku juga di sini. Secara halus, mereka mengatakan sesiapa berada di Tahrir Square minggu lepas pasti akan menjadi sebahagian daripada sejarah. Pandangan begini juga bersifat lama, berulang-ulang, iaitu berasaskan andaian bahawa kuasa rakyat adalah agung.

Sebenarnya, kejadian di Mesir adalah perulangan biasa, iaitu satu penentangan terakibat daripada ketidakadilan. Sesiapa yang berada di situ, sama sahaja dengan sesiapa berada di mana-mana tempat yang ada tunjuk perasaan atau rusuhan.

Pengkritik kerajaan yang berjiwa muda progresif itu juga merungut kerana kata mereka kejadian di Mesir terlalu lambat berlaku di Malaysia. Sebenarnya, Malaysia sejak awal mempunyai kaedah kawalan yang dijangka dapat bertahan. Kaedah ini dibantu ciri utama masyarakat kita, iaitu pelbagai kaum yang terlatih untuk bersatu padu. Kelemahan memang ada di sana sini, tetapi secara keseluruhannya keutuhan masyarakat Malaysia sukar digoyang oleh adu domba. Cuma, adakah kekuatan kaedah Malaysia itu masih seutuh asalnya? Juga, adakah kita kini menggunakan kaedah kita untuk maksud betul? Itulah persoalan kita.

Semua makna yang di atas hendaklah dianjak sewajarnya. Pencarian kedamaian dan keharmonian selalunya berjaya jika teori anjakan makna diaplikasi dengan baik dan berhemah. Teori ini dicipta secara umumnya untuk menemukan kedamaian. Berkaitan dengan peristiwa di Mesir, peringatan Nurul Izzah Anwar adalah memenuhi konsep anjakan makna. (Sinar Harian, 1 Februari 2011)

Menurut Ahli Parlimen Lembah Pantai itu, rakyat Mesir (dan Tunisia juga) tidak bangkit jika kepimpinan negara tidak korup dan tidak zalim. Nurul Izzah berpesan kekayaan negara hendaklah diagih dengan adil, beban hidup rakyat hendaklah dilegakan, kebebasan media diizinkan, keluhan rakyat didengari, dan demokrasi dalam pilihan raya jangan bersifat palsu. Izzah memetik kata-kata Thomas Jefferson, bahawa apabila rakyat takut kepada kerajaan, itu ialah penindasan, dan apabila kerajaan takut kepada rakyat itulah demokrasi.

Bicara Nurul Izzah kelihatannya tentang hal luar negara, tetapi sesiapa yang membacanya amat cepat teringatkan Malaysia. Semakin rapi kita membacanya, semakin terasa bahawa Nurul Izzah berniat baik menasihat pemimpin Kerajaan Malaysia agar sentiasa mengutamakan rakyat. Pertanyaan daripada beberapa orang teman tentang adakah kemungkinan tunjuk perasaan seumpama itu berlaku di Malaysia, mudah dijawab. Nasihat Nurul Izzah, dan nasihat orang lain yang seumpamanya – jika diikuti – akan sentiasa berjaya menjauhkan petaka seperti di Mesir itu daripada menimpa Malaysia.

Saya tertarik pada makalah tulisan Nurul Izzah kerana terserlah keikhlasannya. Dia benar-benar berhasrat untuk menasihati kerajaan yang sedia ada agar berwaspada, bukannya mengancam bahawa pihaknya akan mengambil alih pemerintahan. Perhatikan kata-katanya, "Kebangkitan tidak akan berlaku seandainya wanita pertama menjadi 'ibu' kepada semua, dan bukan menganaktirikan dan melarikan jongkong emas milik rakyat". Pesanan ini ditujukan kepada sesiapa yang menjadi isteri orang besar di negara kita agar sentiasa ikhlas dalam menjalankan peranan. Wanita pertama dianggapnya sebagai 'ibu'.

Dalam satu majlis di Kuala Lumpur, saya telah ditanya oleh Dr Suhami Aziz, intelektual sastera yang terkemuka, adakah anjakan makna bertolak daripada pembaca atau penulis/penutur? Suhaimi bertanya bukanlah kerana beliau tidak faham, tetapi beliau menghendaki kepastian dari penganjur konsep ini. Saya menyatakan bahawa anjakan boleh berlaku di dalam akal sesiapa saja, pembaca, pendengar, penulis, pembicara – malah secara teoritis, gejala anjakan itu mungkin sedia ada pada ungkapan atau ayat. Ertinya, apabila Nurul Izzah mengatakan "mereka bangkit kerana sudah terlalu lama mereka 'dijajah'", keseluruhannya sedia beranjak.

Perhatikan, bahawa biarpun sesebuah negara itu merdeka, akan timbul perasaan 'dijajah' apabila rakyat merasakan adanya penindasan terhadap mereka. Rakyat menghendaki kemerdekaan daripada 'penjajahan' yang terlindung itu. Sejauh manakah kita dapat menerima konsep yang figuratif sedemikian berbalik pada keupayaan imaginasi dan kecenderungan membuat perbandingan. Sesiapa yang hanya cenderung berbahasa denotatif pasti akan menolak kenyataan itu. Negara merdeka adalah negara merdeka, mengapakah pula dikatakan 'dijajah'?

Setelah mendapat makna bahawa rakyat di negara yang merdeka itu 'dijajah', kita juga memperoleh makna figuratif bahawa negara orang adalah negara kita. Hal ini demikian kerana penulisan atau pertuturan tidak terhenti di satu tahap. Sesuatu yang berada di tahap personal akan beranjak ke tahap universal. Sesuatu yang berada di tahap nasional boleh beranjak ke tahap internasional. Demikian juga sebaliknya: parse pro to dan totem pro parte saling mengambil tempat. Memikirkan hal ini, kejadian di tempat lain hendaklah diambil perhatian secara bersungguh-sungguh, kerana di sana juga adalah di sini.

Demikianlah sedikit banyak anjakan makna daripada peristiwa di Mesir.

Jejantas KLCC. Surat Terbuka Nurul Izzah

Posted: 17 Feb 2011 02:57 AM PST

NOTA EDITOR: Ikuti beberapa persoalan yang tidak berani dijawab oleh UMNO yang ditimbulkan dalam surat dibawah sehingga sekarang.

Jejantas: Surat terbuka Nurul Izzah kepada Datuk Bandar KL
Nurul Izzah

Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Bin Ismail

Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur

Tingkat 27, Menara DBKL 1

Jalan Raja Laut

50350 Kuala Lumpur

Assalamualaikum w.b.t Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad ,

PENJELASAN BERKENAAN DENGAN PROJEK JEJANTAS YANG MENGHUBUNGKAN PUSAT KONVENSYEN KL DAN HOTEL IMPIANA KLCC

Dengan hormatnya saya merujuk kepada perkara di atas.

Buat pengetahuan pihak Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad, saya telah melawat projek Jejantas yang menghubungkan Pusat Konvensyen Kuala Lumpur dan Hotel Impiana KLCC, yang telah membawa saya kepada persoalan-persoalan berikut:

1. Merujuk kepada laporan Bernama (terbitan The Star bertarikh 8hb September 2010), yang menyatakan, "Petronas telah menyumbangkan RM100 juta kepada pembangunan kemudahan dua-fasa ini yang menyokong usaha kerajaan bagi menggalak dan merangsang pertumbuhan industri pelancongan. KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd (KLCC), sebuah subsidiari milikan-penuh Petronas telah ditugas mengurus peruntukan tersebut bersama DBKL sebagai penyelaras projek utama untuk laluan pejalan kaki di KL.";

Adakah DBKL dikecualikan dari meluluskan reka bentuk projek tersebut? Dan jikalau ya, megapakah Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd telah dilantik untuk meneruskan projek jejantas (fasa kedua) dan adakah tender terbuka dilaksanakan sebelum mereka dipilih?



2. Merujuk kepada laporan The Star bertarikh 9 Februari, Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail dan ketua pegawai eksekutif KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd telah "menandatangani surat perjanjian untuk penyerahan jejantas ini dari KLCCH ke DBKL."; 


Berapakah kos penyelenggaraan kemudahan ini (dan juga jejantas fasa kedua) pada tahun-tahun akan datang, dan siapa yang akan menanggung beban penyelenggaraan tersebut?

Saya amat berharap agar Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad dapat memberikan respon segera di atas persoalan dan permasalahan yang saya bangkitkan di dalam projek jejantas ini.

Segala kerjasama daripada pihak Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad, saya dahului dengan ucapan terima kasih dan mudah-mudahan segala kerja kita diberkati Allah S.W.T..

"Bersama Menegakkan Keadilan"

Sekian. Wassalam.

Yang Berkhidmat,

Nurul Izzah Anwar

I think the light bulb finally came on......errr......hello!......HELLO! Knock knock......


Finally, after years of pissing us law-abiding citizens off by offering discounts for late payment of summonses the bloody ministry and the police flers finally get it right. I hope!

The minister of transport, Kong Cho Har announced that with effect from March 1, 2011 the cabinet has agreed to restructure the system for paying traffic summonses based on the principle that 'the more you delay, the more you pay'.

Well, it's about bloody time I say. Bloody time that the transport minister, police and members of the cabinet show that they have some grey matter upstairs. Cabinet agreement indeed.  I mean it is not rocket science to punish only those who deserve punishment right? When it seems that it has always been the system to reward the crooks.  Oh wait a minute......isn't that how things are done here?  Ah so...good move forward then. Good, good, good.  Thank you ah.

---o0o---

What is faith?

1.   Sitting at a bus stop waiting for a bus in KL/PJ.

2.   The PR state government listening to a Federally-appointed State Secretary taking an oath of secrecy.

3.   Hearing a recorded message telling you for the 87th time, "your call is important to us."

4.   Believing Mahathir's claim that he did not have anything to do with Ops Lalang.

Any more?

Teohlogy review in the NST


The Quran Is Their Box

Posted: 17 Feb 2011 01:40 AM PST

This just caught my attention from one of Pastorius's postings of Will's Links:

Top Islamic Scholars Say Jews and Christians Know Islam Is True, Purposely Removed Muhammad from the Bible.

I thought about writing a comment to it but it became too long for a comment so I am posting it as an article here. Enjoy.

This is what Mohammed said too (and all the caliphs and muftis that followed).

According to different sources, Christians and Jews changed the Bible and removed references to Mohammed because 1) They didn't want to stop eating pork 2) They wanted to keep on fishing on the Sabbath 3) They wanted to keep on committing adultery 4) They just didn't want to accept that an Arab was the chosen one. There are other dumb reasons also, of course, but these were the only ones I could think of off the top of my head. My Muslim thinking is getting rusty Sad smile

Muslims also claim that the Bible forbids the drinking of alcohol and even Gentiles are not allowed to eat pork. Muslims, on top of all this, claim and wholeheartedly believe that even though Christians and Jews have worked together in history (imagine that!) to blot out Mohammed from the Bible, there are still references to him scattered in there (eg. Dueteronomy 18.18).

Now, as a Muslim, the only reason I actually picked up (or downloaded, rather) the Bible was to find references to Mohammed in there (according to Sura 7.157, Mohammed is mentioned in the Torah and Injeel [a corrupted Arabic word for the Greek euangélion]. Not only did I download the Bible and consult different Imams and scholars on what specific verses there were about Mohammed in the Bible that still survive to this day, I also read the Bible cover to cover to actually see for myself whether these verses were what they were hyped up to be in the ummah!

Well, guess what. Reading the Bible made me lose faith not only in Islam but also God, or rather god, because all I knew about the supreme being was from Islam, the supreme being that you can't really get to know on a personal level and if you try to or claim to know him, then you have committed blasphemy (note: I am not talking about Sufiism here. No one really cares about Sufis. I am talking from a Sunni perspective).

I think my only mistake when I read the Bible to look for Mohammed was that I did not switch off my brain and become a dummy who yells "May Allah's Curse be on the Jews and the Christians for they build places of worship at the graves of their prophets" (this is what Mohammed said right before dying. Compare that with what Christ said. And also consider this: Today, his own followers take pains to go to Medina, where he's buried, to just look at his grave and be able to touch the golden bars (prison!) that are there to stop people from entering the grave area and touching the grave itself [A funny story about that: So, the Jews wanted to steal Mohammed's body and they had actually dug a tunnel from Israel {I believe} all the way to Medina. They were so secretive and successful {them Jews!!} that they had got the body and were taking it out. But at the last minute they got caught {hahaha! Allah embarrasses the sneaky Jews every chance he gets. Allah! The greatest of deceivers…hey, that's in the Quran} and were publically executed], guess Mohammed's cursing his own people too now).

Anyway, so I didn't turn off my brains and just walk in the footsteps of 1.3 billion idiots that sing the same songs and recite the same mantra. Three years after I read the Bible for the first time and lost my faith in everything, I converted to Christianity (to join the Jews and the Christians in this conspiracy of hiding the truth and committing adultery and fishing on the Sabbath…yup, I'm big on fishing, look at all the fish in my backyard!!) and a year after that I wrote a tiny book explaining how stupid it is to think that verses like Deuteronomy 18.18 talk about Mohammed and reason that I gave that it was stupid was that, um, no these verses don't talk about Mohammed. Just read the goddam context!

So to wrap it up, I am not really surprised by that comment by Muslim scholars. It actually makes me feel kind of at peace to know that they still haven't changed and we are still fighting the same idiotic people that we were fighting when I joined this fight.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the following Hadith (Bukhari, Vol 2. No 555):

Narrated Ash-sha'bi:

The clerk of Al-Mughira bin Shu'ba narrated, "Muawiya wrote to Al-Mughira bin Shu'ba: Write to me something which you have heard from the Prophet (p.b.u.h) ." So Al-Mughira wrote: I heard the Prophet saying, "Allah has hated for you three things:

1. Vain talks, (useless talk) that you talk too much or about others.

2. Wasting of wealth (by extravagance)

3. And asking too many questions (in disputed religious matters) or asking others for something (except in great need).

(The writings in parentheses are additions by the translators and not in the original text.)

Tiga raja bola sepak Malaysia hari ini

Posted: 16 Feb 2011 11:37 PM PST

Malam 30hb Disember tahun lepas memang satu malam yang manis buat bola sepak Malayisa.

Gol Safee Sali pada minit ke 53 meletakkan Malaysia mendahului 1-0 perlawanan kedua menentang Indonesia. Pada perlawanan pertama kita sudah menang 3-0.

Walaupun Indinesia berjaya menyerikan 1-1 pada minit 87, piala perlawanan serantau pertama dimenangi Malaysia sejak sukan SEA 1989 di Kuala Lumpur dah dalam tangan.

Masa tengah-tengah "happy", Husin tanya budak-budak yang tengok game di kedai mamak, "OK brader semua, siapa raja bola sepak Malaysia hari ini?"

"Mestilah Safee Sali, bang!!!"

Sekali ramai budak-budak menjawab Husin.

"Ada tiga orang. Bola sepak sekarang. Bukan zaman Mokhtar Dahari, Santokh, Arumugam semua tak main ..."

Macam-macam nama mereka cuba.

"Semua tidak, Safee pun tidak," Husin jawab.

"Mestilah Safee, bang. Dia sekarang prolific scorer kita."

Ada satu mamat pakai cap merah tak setuju.

"Ok abang beritahu. Tiga raja bola sepak Malaysia sekarang adalah Sultan Pahang, Tengku Mahkota Pahang dan ....

"Dan siapa bang?"

Budak baju kuning tak sabar nak tahu.

"... Rajagopal."

Ha ha ha ha .... semua ketawa.

"Abang Husin ..."

Budak pakai cap merah tu datang untuk set jari dengan Husin sambil berkata, "... Rajagopal saya setuju. Baik punya coach, Bang.

"Walaupun dia kaum India ... kita mesti akui dan sanjungi kehebatan dia. Orang Malaysia, 1Malaysia bro."

I sighted a commenter's point about Jeffrey Kitingan which I concur with 100%.I had earlier written exactly a similar assessment about the former BN, then PKR socalled-strongman -- all cheerleaders including one MCLMer Haris Ibrahim and sidekick named zorro claimed really! -- the phrase I used then was "ONE LEG IN TWO BOATS" while the commenter Michatan2000 said "(J Kitingan) wants the cake and eat it at the same time."


as in the following:

This is the problem with Jeffrey Kittingan. He wants the cake and eat it at the same time. Going to bed with BN and opposition parties at the same time. Hedging all the time without a principled stand. MCLM should refrain from dealing with Jeffrey Kittingan.

As where the comment appeared, Desi is NOT going to lend you a helping hand,just mention its title:(

UBF aims to help SNAP


DESIDERATA's PS:
I think there is a parallel between UBF and MCLM. Hence I would ask of J Kitinggan the same I had asked of Haris Ibraim in the following post, especially the HIGHLIGHTED POINT,**** dated

Bersih2.0 muddied by People's Parliament playing 'active' politics

Bersih rallies for free and clean elections

My "concerned" activist-friend said that with Haris' involvement in MCLM -- touted by many as The Third Force -- he and several Bersih activists are not happy that the "neutrality" of Bersih is being compromised once MCLM started announcing "nominees" comprising so-called "Malaysians of integity" as candidates for GE13.

KUALA LUMPUR - I recently bumped into an non-governmental organisation (NGO) activist who expressed concern about civil rights lawyer-blogger Haris Ibrahim's increasingly "political" role in Malaysian politics. Nothing wrong with any individual playing politics except that Haris is also founder of People's Parliament which has been, and still is, a key component of the coalition named Bersih -- Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections 2.0 (BERSIH2.0)-- whose cornerstone role since its formation is fighting for free and fair elections in Malaysia. Just two weekends ago, the Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM) was launched by blogger-in-exile Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) in London with RPK being announced as the Chairman, and Haris as the President.

"Bersih" in Bahasa Malaysia means "Clean" and is the acronym for this coalition of NGOs started before the last general elections in 2008 (GE12) to improve all aspects of what was and still is perceived by the citizenry of a highly "tainted" electoral processes leading to the Malaysian Parliament as well as to the State Assemblies. And with the next general elections (GE13) expected to be around the corner, the weekend saw a briefing by Haris for NGOs on what MCLM is all about, and the previous weekend the launch of MCLM in Lodon.

My "concerned" activist-friend said that with Haris' involvement in MCLM -- touted by many as The Third Force -- he and several Bersih activists are not happy that the "neutrality" of Bersih is being compromised once MCLM started announcing "nominees" comprising so-called "Malaysians of integrity" as candidates for GE13 -- the first being lawyer said to be esteemed by the community, Malik Imtiaz Sarwar. A first public forum scheduled for tomorrow (Dec 21, 2010) in KL will see the second MCLM candidate publicised.

Will Bersih2.0 leaders now make a policy decision with component-members like Haris and RPK who want to actively take part in partisan politics, however "independent" they claim to be? Just for the record, some key Bersih2.0 Steering Committee Members hereby listed:

1. Dato' Ambiga Sreenavasan Chairperson of BERSIH. Former President of Malaysian Bar Council and a senior practising lawyer.
2. Andrew Khoo Chairperson of the Human Rights Committee, Malaysian Bar Council
3. Arumugam K. President of SUARAM, a well-known human rights organisation
4. Dr Farouk Musa President of the Islamic Rennaisance Front, a think tank promoting civilisational dialogue; a lecturer
5. Maria Chin Abdullah Executive Director of Empower, a women and human rights organisation and working for democratic governance.
6. Haris Ibrahim Founder of Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia, a citizen movement that fights corruption and racism; a human rights lawyer

I am not writing today about the mechanics of MCLM's participation in GE13 like the rote it would finally take -- via other PR component parties like DAP and PKR as hinted by Haris? -- but lesser mortals like me a blogger who also carries a membership card of an Opposition party would ask: Isn't this a political tole for Malaysians who have committed to a REGISTERED political party's membership for some time to offer themselves as "candidates". Never mind the semantics of "quality" and who judges "integrity or character" -- I referred to these judges as demi-gods yes as a non-compliment, I must add! -- of the nominees, but surely a potential candidate must have been himself/herself sufficiently motivated to sign up as a member of the duly registered parties, UMNO,MCA, MIC, do I care? Or PKR, DAP or PAS, yes, I care! Or even KITA if you are desperate enough!

I don't care what motivated RPK and Haris' latest move via MCLM, but I care if it threatens the people/Rakyat's concerted efforts to topple the BN-UMNO government in Putrajaya, which I contend MCLM's progress will despite the founders' and supporters' protestations to the contrary. ****IF you want to lay an active role as NGO, let it be, just don't start this process of contesting GE13 directly or indirectly. Join former PKR deputy president aspirant Zaid Ibrahim -- Go sign up as a KITA member-lah, for a start -- that's surely a basic desideratum of infant entry into playing politics, is it not?
