Malaysiakini free: Umno division leader calls for Azeez's head

Malaysiakini's article Umno division leader calls for Azeez's head is free to read.

Azeez (real name Kalimuthu a/l Panddiyappa" is the apple polishing Chairman of Lembaga Tabung Haji whom some claimed that his appointment was a result of Rosmah Mansur's insistence. He was so grateful that he was photographed kissing the hand of Rosmah Mansur.

Because of the anger of many Muslims that he and his board had used the Tabung Haji fund to pay in cash for a piece of the toxic 1MDB, he was forced to announce that on the advice of Najib, the land will be sold to other third parties.

Apparently that wasn't enough to appease the anger that Cheras Umno Secretary Syed Mehdhar Syed Abdullah was quoted to say Abdul Azeez was a liability to the party and he should resign or be sacked as Chairman of Tabung Haji.

Malaysiakini free: Ahmad Maslan's May 13 tweet misfires

Many free to read Malaysiakini articles today, and here is one more: Ahmad Maslan's May 13 tweet misfires.

Ahmad Maslan tweeted "Today is May 13. In 1969, I was three-years-old. We hope and pray that the bloody episode (peristiwa berdarah) never happens again," and got brickbats in return. Some of them:

Nazri_fahmi tweeted "Incident could recur if the current leadership continues to turn its back on the people."

@bullet_gov tweeted "May 13 would not happen again if there are excellent ministers, but if we get those (ministers) who are 'bangang (stupid)', there would be chaos in the country".

Malaysiakini free: Najib's 'ask why' goes awry

Here is another ethical opportunity to read the subscription based Malaysiakini without being a subscriber. Malaysiakini has published another free to read for all article: Najib's 'ask why' goes awry.

In the article, Najib was reported as telling the students "....education is not just about learning specific facts and figures. It is about thinking widely around a subject, and questioning. "Asking: 'why?' Being able to see both sides of an argument. Allowing your minds to open and develop, and for learning to be a voyage of discovery," but was then bombarded by the students turning the table on him with quotes like:

"When we, the young generation ask why, you slapped us with sedition law. Walk the talk, don't la walk then hide. Still support AI (Anwar Ibrahim)."

"That's what we are asking. Why money missing in 1mdb? Why misuse GLC to bailout 1MDB? Why practice racist politics? Why the Malaysian ringgit going down so much? Why cost of living went up drastically? Why government debts piles up?"

BN poor management country finance hits UMMC

The Barisan Nasional federal government messing up Malaysia's governance and finance is now affecting UMMC (Universiti Malaya Medical Center, also called PPUM or Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya) with its annual budget cut by RM120 million from RM387 million to RM267 million.

This is expected to have much negative consequences to the care to patients by the teaching hospital as well as the quality of education to its medical students and housemen. Wonder which institution or service will be hit next.

How the British scrapped their Sedition laws

Malaysia currently is actively debating the amendments to the Sedition Act which many will agree is draconian. And today, Malaysiakini has again published a free article so even non-subscribers can read. The article is How the British scrapped their Sedition laws

Extract: This was where it was first established that for the crime of sedition, truth was no defence and intention was irrelevant as was whether there was any actual harm done, which is still the cornerstone of the principles of sedition in modern day Malaysia 409 years later today.

The Sedition Act is worded so vaguely that almost anything can be termed seditous. The person accused of sedition may be stating the truth as you can see in the extract above. No harm may have been done, but that too is irrelevant.

Selangor to boost public transport: MB Azmin

We had misgivings regarding Azmin Ali as Selangor Mentri Besar (Chief Minister) before but it looks like our misgivings are unfounded for Azmin is proving to be quite a competent Mentri Besar. We have The Malay Mail Online reporting that Azmin will expand Selangor's public transport rather than build more highways. This is exactly what the thinking public wants rather than more tolled highways like what the Federal Government had been doing and is proposing to build even more tolled highways.

Good for you Azmin.

Utusan Malaysia sued, apology for the upteen times?

Utusan Malaysia had been sued and had apologize many times for false reporting and today it had been reported that Utusan Malaysia again had to apologize to lawyer Dahlan for 'untrue' report.

Really, is Utusan Malaysia worthy to be called a real newspaper when it had been found to be a repeat offender for publishing "false" news?

Aidana Baizieva, Semanyih helicopter crash, missing link

Since the unfortunate helicopter crash at Semenyih that resulted in the untimely death of the late Rompin MP Jamaluddin Jarjis and 5 others, many had been wondering who the late Aidana Baizieva was.

Till now that is. The late Aidan Baizieva was a Kazakhstan citizen as confirmed by Kyrgyzstan embassy and her remains were claimed by mystery woman who arrived at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital mortuary with a Toyota Vios with a man believed to be a representative from the Kazakhstan embassy (source: The Malaysian Insider).

As the helicopter were carrying 6 passengers and pilot from Najib's daughter and son-in-law reception in Pekan, could Aidana Baizieva be also related to Najib's new son-in-law Daniyar Nazarbayev? (source: Free Malaysia Today: Najib’s future son-in-law a ‘conman’?).

Update 4.15pm 6 April 2015: The Malaysian Insider says identity of last victim Aidana Baizieva yet to be confirmed.

Update 2, 7.50pm 6 April 2015: Malaysiakini reported Aidana Baizieva to be a staff of the helicopter company, Cempaka Aviation Sdn. Bhd. on behalf of IGB Corporation.

Lee Kuan Yew and guided democracy

The great and admired Lee Kuan Yew passed away today at 3.18am and Singapore enters a new period without his presence. His rule reminded me of a General Paper essay I had wrote in Form 6 about democracy where I wrote democracy is but a rule by the average intelligence population and a BENEVOLENT dictator will do better.

A leader in a true democracy needs to gets his mandate every few years from voters whose intelligence is as distributed similar to a normal curve, very few highly intelligent people at one end, few low IQ people at the opposite and the great majority average intelligence in the middle.


Normal distribution. Source: Wikipedia

Because a leader in a democracy needs to get his mandate from the voters which majority are of average intelligence, a democracy is but a rule by the average intelligence. A leader in a democracy may be forced to implement popular policies which may not be of long term benefits to the country.

A benevolent dictator who has the best interest of the people at heart to me is a better choice, but God help us if we get a dictator who ruled for his own interest. To me, the late Lee Kuan Yew is a good example of "guided democracy" where the people are wise enough to elect and reelect such a benevolent dictator.

Is it OK to lie to non-Muslims? Taqiya

I have sat through the video, 3 things you probably don't know about Islam and its main points can be summarized as
1. There are contradictions in the Quran but Quran has provided a way to handle contradictions: if there are contradictions, the later verses will override the earlier verses
2. It is the obligation of every Muslim to strive till Sharia is imposed in the whole world (creeping Islam)
3. It is OK to lie to a non-Muslim as long as it advances the interest of Islam (Taqiya)

I have not read the Quran, perhaps later when I have done, but have found an article where they quote verses from the Quran at Lying (Taqiyya and Kitman). The verses are not quoted verbatim but explanations. However, since the verses are numbered it will be easy to refer to the Quran to look up the verses and this is what I intend to do when I get my hands on the free copy of translation of the Quran and I would encourage you to do the same.

But in the meantime, let me focus on 3 (Taqiya) and examine this recent incident where PAS has passed a bill to impose Hudud on Kelantan and Kelantan PAS was also reported to have said We have the numbers for Hudud in Parliament

Note that in 2011, PAS had pushed the Welfare State and the slogan PAS for all, supposedly to appease non-Muslims and now has turned around and pushed to impose Hudud despite strong objections from its allies in DAP.

Footnote: There don't seem to be any reference to lying to non-Muslims to advance the interest of Islam in Wikipedia: Taqiya, only mentions of lying in time of dangers, so this may mean we really have to read the Quran for ourself to establish the truth.

Malays under threat? Is that possible?

UMNO and NGOs like Perkasa and Isma etc., keep talking about the Malays in Malaysia under threat from non-Malays. Malys form the majority of the population in Malaysia. Almost all if not all positions of authority like Prime Ministership, Deputy Prime Minister, Chief Police Officer, Attorney General, Chief Justice, Registra of Society, Registra of Companies, Finance Minister, Home Minister, etc. etc, are all Malays. Nearly all if not all banks and financial institutions, Petronas, and many other corporations are now in Malay hands. So in what way can non-Malays be of threat to the Malays?

Well, here is an email forward purportedly from a Malay, genuine or not I am not in a position to judge but you judge for yourself:

Ahmad Said asked,
UMNO had ruled Msia for 57 years n still crying to safeguard Malay special right,Malay under threat,Malay living under poverty etc etc.
He asked:-
For 57 years, UMNO ruled the country,
Islam is National religion,what had UMNO bn doing if Malaysia n Islam is under threat?
He said the facts are:-
1) Msia has 9 Sultans n a king n they r Malays.
2) PM & DPM,holding Msia top most powerful post r Malay.
3) Since 1974,Minister of Finance r Malays.
4) Other than Penang, all CM & MB r Malays.
5) Majority of Federal Ministers r Malays n influential n Impt
Ministries r Malays.
6) Out of 222 MP,more than 50% r Malays.
7) More than 93% of Gov't Dept, fr low to Top post, r Malays
8) NEP r designed for Malays.
9) 80% of Uni quota r reserved for Malays.
10) Special discount for hse purchased n stocks r for Malays.
11) Top post of Police & Army r Malays.
12) GLC r controlled by
Malays

He said how cud Malays in absolute control r in threat n danger fr minority races. It is UMNO & cronies who with never ending greeds continued to bully & lie to Malays by blaming Chinese n Indians as scape goat.
Ahmad Said urged Malays to wake up n see the evil intentions of UMNO Warlords.

God bless beautiful Malaysia n its peace loving Rakyat.
I love u,Malaysia

Hidden hands behind Malaysia racial unrests and riots

May 13 (1969). Mention May 13 and every Malaysian would know of the racial riots. According to "official" historians, it was the DAP (Democratic Action Party)'s party victory parade and racial taunts after the 1969 General Elections that triggered the unrest and the cold blooded killing of non-Malays, mainly Chinese. But we have unconfiremed reports that it was actually a plan by Tun Abdul Razak, then Deputy Prime Minister, hatched to overthrow the then Prime Minister Tengku Abdul Rahman and install his deputy as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

But if the "senior" lawyer who had a conversation with Haris M Ibrahim (People's Parliament) while waiting for his trial for Sedition is true, then the second scenario above is the correct version (source: Judging Najib and Umno with the wisdom of Solomon)

Haris wrote: "I was joined in the court canteen by a legal practitioner who is senior in age but relatively junior at the Bar. We started to talk about the recent slew of sedition charges and what might be the motivation behind them. After I had offered my two sen on the matter, he gave his.

He told me that some 40 years ago, when Harun Idris was ordered to enter his defence in his corruption trial, Harun spilled the beans on the May 13 incident as he gave his evidence. Harun had apparently said in the witness box that, at the instigation of Tun Razak, Najib’s father, and upon the promise from the same that he would be appointed Deputy Prime Minister, Harun had orchestrated the incidents that had triggered the whole May 13 saga, with a view to toppling Tunku Abdul Rahman. The whole business of race riots, according to Harun, was stage-managed in order to seize political power."

Then of Operation Lalang in 1987: "when Dr M faced a challenge within UMNO and needed to neutralize the judiciary and the media, Lee Kim Sai and Najib obliged with racist exchanges.
The two were never dealt with. Instead, 106 voices that represented the conscience of the nation were detained under Ops Lallang, to enable Dr M to go about his dirty deeds without any resistance."

And now when UMNO/BN felt insecure, losing popular support and apprehensive about losing the 14th General Election, at the UMNO General Assembly where Najib showed clippings of the May 3 bloodshed: "Yesterday, as Najib conducted his history lesson for the Umno delegates, RTM carried in their news reports the ongoing UMNO Assembly proceedings, accompanied by the most vile of visuals intended to sow deep hatred in the hearts of Malay-Muslims towards their non-Muslim fellow citizens.

In a sense, what we, the nation, witnessed yesterday was the culmination of a relentless agenda by Umno, its cohorts inside and outside of BN, since the 13th GE, to demonise the non-Malays in the eyes of the Malays, with a view to instilling in the former a fear of the return of the ghost of May 13, 1969 to haunt the present generation."

Is Haris correct? You be the judge.

Selangor MB crisis, Hadi Awang betrayal of PR

It was reported in The Malaysian Insider (Hadi admits offering Azmin MB post in unity government with Umno) that Hadi Awang of PAS had offered Azmin of PKR the Mentri Besar post by joining PAS, UMNO and a few PKR turncoats to form a unity state government for Selangor.

This is betrayal of the highest order by Hadi Awang. However, it was rejected by Azmin and the other PAS Selangor State Assemblymen if I read the article correctly. Just how dependable is PAS as a partner of Pakatan Rakyat? Can the voters trust Hadi Awang again? And PAS? I believe many others in PAS do not agree with cooperating with UMNO. Let's see how the development unfolds.

Khairy: Property damage is not same as expressing complaint or opinion

Khairy Jamalludin says if Kiki (Siti Fairrah Ashykin Kamaruddin) charged, then the youth who complained about loud prayers from mosque loudspeakers should also be charged.

Oh my gosh. A Oxford graduate and a Minister could not distinguish between a road bully who uses a steering lock to hammer at an old man's car? I think Khairy should go back to school.

Dr. Mohd Zuhdi Marzuki and ISMA

We all know ISMA and its ultra Malay-Islamic views, but until the expose of the Whatapp conversation of the PAS Central Committee members, most Malaysians would not know who this Dr. Mohd. Zuhdi Marzuki is.

Dr. Mohd. Zuhdi Marzuki

Dr. Mohd. Zuhdi Marzuki is PAS Research Centre Operations Director who while painting various scenerios of PAS leaveing the Pakatan Rakyat coalition and to betray PR and voters who voted them into office to team up with UMNO and 2 turncoats from PR to form a simple majority Selangor state government plus at the year end, engage in gerrymandering to disenfranchise the non-Malays non-Muslims.

But KTemoc had 2 months earlier wrote about Zduhdi being photographed together with other ISMA members with Zdudi representing PAS so this racist slant of Zuhdi should be no big surprise. See photo below:

Chew Mei Fun a likely candidate for the Kajang by-election

It has been reported by Malaysia Chronicles that MCA has submitted only 1 name to the Prime Minister for candidature in the upcoming Kajang by-election termed as the Kajang Move by Rafizi. It is speculated that the person proposed as the sole candidate by MCA is former PJ Utara Member of Parliament an former Women, Family and Community Deputy Minister Chew Mei Fun.

Here is something that the Kajang electorate as well as Malaysians should know about Chew Mei Fun. In the days preceding the 12th General Election 2008, a question was posed to Chew Mei Fun: "With the BN whip perpetually in force and never lifted in Parliament, how can you as a BN Member of Parliament represent your constituency?" (Because of the BN whip, all BN MP must vote for any proposals or bills tabled in Parliament by BN and against anything coming from the Opposition IRRESPECTIVE OF MERITS).

Chew Mei Fun's answer: "It is not that simple. Before anything is tabled in the Parliament, a long process of consultation must take place. The stakeholders, NGOs, etc., are consulted...."

Not long after that, a bill was tabled in the Parliament proposing to raise the age for mandatory retirement of an Election Commission from 65 to 66 years.It is widely believed that the billl was specifically to enable Rashid to continue to serve as the Election Commission Chairman for the 12th General Election. When news broke, arrangement was quickly made for an urgent appointment with Chew Mei Fun.

At the appointment, Chew Mei Fun was asked: "Prior to the bill to increase the mandatory retirement age of Election Commission members from 65 to 66, how long was the consultation and who were consulted?"

Chew Mei Fun answered: "When I told you that, I was only referring to my Ministry"

Folks, you judge for yourself that if Chew Mei Fun or any other BN member become the Kajang by-election candidate whether you should vote for or against the BN candidate. For further info, refer to a previous article Why always vote against a BN candidate irrespective of reputation.

The 14th General Election will be UMNO/BN toughest fight

PY Wong of Tindak Malaysia said things in Malaysia will only change when the people begins to suffer. And I agree. As long as people are comfortable, they are not bothered to do anything about the malaise existing in Malaysia. However, when it begins to affect their pocket, that is the time they start to notice lots of things are not how it should be.

And people in Malaysia are beginning to suffer from the subsidy pull back and the slowing economy. 

Kajang move: UMNO/BN will throw in everything they have to defeat Anwar Ibrahim

Latest move in the "Kajang move", the by-election in the Kajang state constituency caused by the sudden resignation of Kajang ADUN Lee Chin Cheh: UMNO big wigs already making their rounds in Kajang to woo voters.

My prediction: UMNO/BN will do all in their capacity to defeat Anwar Ibrahim who had been a constant thorn in their rear. Whether they succeed or not is a different question, but this is their best chance of causing embarrasment to Anwar Ibrahim. 

However, I hope they don't succeed.
