Taukeh Disneyland Ampang, Adam Rosly, yang dikatakan berada di pihak Azmin Ali telahpun dihadapkan di mahkamah atas pertuduhan berkaitan dengan perbuatan rasuah.

Adam dituduh di bawah Seksyen 32(8)(c) dan Seksyen 89 Akta Pencegahan Pengubahan Wang Haram dan Pencegahan Pembiayaan Keganasan, 2001. Jika disabitkan kesalahan, Adam boleh dipenjarakan tidak melebihi satu tahun atau denda tidak melebihi RM1 juta atau kedua-duanya sekali bagi setiap pertuduhan.

Dengan segera Sotong-tersohor  Saudari Rafizi Ramli menyarankan agar PKR menjauhkan diri dari dikaitkan dengan Adam Rosly.


Dalam pada itu, Ketua Angkatan Muda PKR Saudara Nik Nazmi pula cadangkan agar keahlian Adam Rosly dalam pergerakan tersebut digantung.


Sekiranya tindakan tidak diambil terhadap Adam Rosly maka Azmin Ali menghadapi risiko ditohmah sebagai pembela ahli yang lakukan rasuah.

Persoalan seterusnya ialah, adakah PKR juga akan menjauhkan diri dari Rafizi dan menggantung keahliannya setelah empat kali didapati bersalah kerana menabur fitnah dan menghasut?


Atau adakah PKR selesa dikenali sebagai parti yang dikemudi oleh seorang yang terbukti pemfitnah dan penghasut?

Kalau nak bertindak, bertindaklah terhadap kedua-duanya sekali. Nama pun KEADILAN.

There is approximately 2 million Indians in Malaysia. Their ancestors were brought here by the British to work on the rubber, coffee, tea and sugar plantations.

In 1931, there were 640,000 Indians. In Selangor that year, they outnumbered the Selangor Malays.

Although the Malays were marginalised initially, steps were taken by the British Residents to ensure that the Malays do not lose out to the immigrants.

However, very little was done to help improve the living conditions and education of the Indian community.

Estates management refused to spend on the Tamil schools in their estates, while the British lent very little support to sustain these schools.  The British’s only aim was to keep the Indians as labourers for the estates they own.

All this changed after Merdeka when the Alliance (now Barisan Nasional) began funding the Tamil schools that have transitioned to national-type schools although the sum was small. This continued throughout only until recently.

The luxury gap between the rich and poor Indians grew as a result, and the latter group was getting into all sorts of trouble. There was very little help made available to the Indians in Malaysia even when a certain Prime Minister of Indian descent had all the means for 22 years to help.

If you think that the Indians fare better under the Opposition in the states that they administer then you are dead wrong.  There have been many cases of oppression of the Indians by the Pakatan governments.

For the past two years, Najib Razak has put together a team to come up with a blueprint that could assist the Indian community.

Called the Malaysian Indian Blueprint or MIB in short – it contains solutions to several key issues affecting the Indians such as education, improving livelihoods and better social inclusion.

Even before the existence of the blueprint, Najib Razak has personally made efforts to improve conditions for the Indians.

For example, there are only 523 Tamil schools in the country. Yet, Najib pledged RM800 million for these schools, or RM1.5 million for each Tamil school.

On top of that, an Indian was appointed as the Deputy Education Minister for the first time in this nation’s history.

Najib also created four departments in his office to look into the plight of the Indians. They are the Tamil Schools Transformation Plan, the Secretariat for the Empowerment of Indian Entrepreneurs, the Special Implementation Task Force, and the Socio-Economic Development for the Indian Community.

He also set up a Cabinet Committee for the Indian Community which he chairs and meets with the stakeholders every month.

Therefore, a lot has been done and is being done by Najib Razak, who is a Malay and a Muslim, for the Indians, more than any Prime Minister or Opposition leader ever has!

And for the next ten years, the MIB will see a whole lot more improvements done for the Indians.

All that for only 7 percent of the total population!

So, why are these people being rude?

The first rail line was opened in 1885 running between Port Weld and Taiping.  The line to the east coast running between Gemas and Tumpat was only completed in 1931, by passing major towns such as Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu and Kota Bharu.

For decades after that there was no real growth in terms of communications in the east coast.

As a punishment to the people of the east coast for not voting in the Barisan Nasional, aid to Kelantan was curbed and was changed into the form of ‘Wang Ihsan‘ in 1990, and the East Coast Highway terminated near Kuantan because Barisan Nasional was ousted by the people of Terengganu in 1999.

Najib Razak changed all that.

Phase 3 of the East Coast Highway which will terminate at Kota Bharu will commence during the 11th Malaysian Plan (2016-2020), as well as the East Coast Rail Link, a new rail link cutting through green fields.

The first phase will see the Klang Valley connected to Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu in the second phase and Kota Bharu and Wakaf Bharu in the third and final phase.


Announcing at the handover ceremony of the Ganchong Water Treatment Plant, he said that the GDP of the state of Pahang would increase by 1.5 percent when the ECRL comes online.

The Opposition as usual is opposed to anything that is good for the people if it comes from the government.

PAN’s Mujahid Yusof Rawa, for instance, questioned how it will benefit the local economy – and you do not need to be a member of Parliament let alone a rocket scientist to figure out the answer.

The ECRL will act as a land bridge for goods coming from the west coast going to especially Shenzen in China through Kuantan port, and similarly goods from the east coast get sent to the Middle East and India through Port Klang.

This land bridge would also allow goods from the eastern part of the globe be sent to the western part through these two ports without having to circumnavigate the Singapore strait.

This cuts down the over-reliance on the Strait of Malacca. Today, more than 80 percent of China’s energy needs pass through that narrow waterway.

So if you imagine it takes just four hours for goods to be transported by a lorry from Kota Bharu to Port Klang using the ECRL as compared to seven hours using the Gua Musang way or nine hours via the East Coast highway, you would be able to imagine the kind of economic growth the east coast states would stand to benefit from the ECRL.

No longer would SME or heavy industries have to be centred in the Klang Valley where the costs of land and living are far higher compared to in Kelantan and Terengganu. More jobs would be created and the luxury gap lessened tremendously.

The time for goods to be transported from Shenzen to Port Klang would be 30 hours lesser than having to sail them around Singapore.

Cost issues aside, this new network will create new alternative routes to boost trade for Asean, with Malaysia as the base; and why this has to be taken seriously is because the Chinese have a direct interest in the (Kuantan) port and the rail link,” said Mr G. Durairaj, managing director of maritime and logistics consultancy PortsWorld.

Already Kuantan port is home to several petrochemical companies such as the BASF-PETRONAS Chemicals. 

The port has also attracted RM8.9 billion worrh of investments including a RM3.5 billion steel facility.

The integrated steel mill will occupy a 287ha site – half the size of Singapore’s Sentosa island – and have an annual production of 3.5 million tonnes.

Imagine the size of investments that the ECRL could bring into the east coast states. Would you now question the benefits the ECRL would bring?

Malaysians are getting poorer that university students can afford to holiday in South Korea and Lombok now

Every day you could read online how Malaysia is going bankrupt and how ordinary Malaysian are suffering because they pay in USD for their roti canai banjir and GST for zero-rated household items.

A proof that Malaysians are suffering financially is that car sales have gone up.

According to the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA), car sales in March 2017 jumped by 26.5% compared to February. That is a whopping 11,262 units more!

That is also a 10% increase compared to March 2016 – 53,717 units compared to 48,788 last year.

Almost 141,000 cars were sold in the first quarter of 2017. That is almost 10,000 units more than the corresponding period in 2016.

Of course, Najib Razak has failed to turn the economy around. Things were far more affordable back then and the USD was at RM2.50 compared to what it is now.

The following table will show how cars were far more affordable during U-Turn Mahathir’s time.

Just before Mahathir became the Prime Minister, only 97,262 vehicles were registered. 19 years into his premiership registration was at 343,173.

The population of Malaysia then was 23.42 million. Therefore the ratio was one vehicle to every 68 Malaysians.

When Najib Razak took over in 2009, the population was 27.79 million. The number of registered vehicles for that year was at 536,905. The ratio was one vehicle for every 52 Malaysians.

Najib Razak has been running the economy down since then. In 2015, six years into his premiership, the numner of vehicles sold and registered for that year was 666,674. The population was at 30.33 million.

Therefore the ratio of vehicles to population was 1:45.

What does this say? Only one thing.

Malaysians are getting poorer because they can afford to spend and buy more cars.

Then they complain about car prices.

Morons.

Christopher Ross Lim, the Chinese male from DAP also known as Zairil Khir Johari, has denied that the person seen kissing with the woman who looks like Dyana Sofya, also from DAP, is him.

“No, it’s not me. They are all fake and that is all I have to say,” he was reported to have said in a WhatsApp message to The Star.


The woman said to be in the photos, Dyana Sofya, has not denied that she is not in the photo.

In her Facebook page, she alluded that the general elections is near and that it was an intrusion of privacy.

“This is the third personal attack within two months, I assume the general elections must be very near. No matter who is in the photos or videos in which I allegedly feature, these are major privacy intrusions into that person’s life.”

“I am sad that our political culture has gone to this. I have no time to entertain this type of personal and vindictive attacks,” she wrote.

Of course the above rule does not apply to Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor when DAP attacks their personal life.


Meanwhile, in our search for the truth we have found the man said to look like Christopher.

Mr Kow Loke Chat, 42, of Bukit Bendera, admits to be the one kissing Dyana.

“I know you may not believe this but if I put on my suit and bow tie I look better than that Malay-wannabe Chinese boy,” he said.

Mr Kow Loke Chat, the man said to be in the photos thought to be Christopher Ross Lim


Loke Chat attributes his youthful good looks to waking up early, peeing while squatting while facing the rising sun, and a good dose of moonshine at night before turning in.

We urge our readers who were born yesterday to believe that this is the man in those photos.

Back in September 1998, I asked a fellow ex-serviceman, a known Anwar Ibrahim supporter, of his direction when Anwar declared war on UMNO. His reply was simple but meaningful:

“You don’t burn your house down just because your family hates you. They are still family.”

When U-Turn Mahathir formed Pribumi, many expected UMNO members to dump the latter in throngs and join the former. That never happened.

Anwar’s facade in his war against Mahathir for the premier post was his “fight against nepotism and cronyism.”

Some “changes” did take place within post-Anwar UMNO. Mahathir’s son Mokhzani stepped down as the UMNO Youth’s treasurer while Mukhriz was not allowed to contest for the Youth Chief position.

As it goes in the Old Testament: “Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or a leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.”

The epitome of nepotism in Pribumi is the naming of Mukhriz as its Deputy President while Mahathir, who holds the Chair, is also the de facto leader, something he failed to become in the UMNO under Najib Razak.

The first hint of problems arising in the months-old party is when Mahathir is seen going around doing roadshows with most of the pro-tem committee members including Mukhriz who is the Deputy President, while Muhyiddin Yassin who is the President appears mostly alone.


Two months after the party’s formation, Khairuddin aka Mr Botox, known as Mahathir’s chow kow or running dog left the party to “concentrate on court cases.”

Five months later, both he and Mr Empty Boxes aka Ezam, headed a party called New Gen Party and changed its name to Parti Bebas Rasuah.

Several days ago, the President of the New Gen Party, Kumaar Aaman, and its Secretary-General Mohamad Zaini Jaafar, lodged a report to the police and Registrar of Societies claiming that Ezam had stolen his party.


Barely two months after the departure of Mr Botox, a scandal erupted in Pribumi. Internal rivalry saw the exposure of steamy WhatsApp conversations screen captures between Anina Saadudin and her supposed sex partner. The exposé was done by none other than her own assistant, Haiyan Uqba.


Anina, who is a Mahathir loyalist is rumoured to be at loggerheads with the Osman sisters from Perak. Whether or not they are involved in the scheme to oust Anina is yet to be proven.

Early last month, 500 members of the party from the Rembau division quit the party en masse.  According to the PPBM Chief Activist for Negeri Sembilan, Mohd Anas Sudin, he and the 500 have lost their confidence in the party leadership.


Last week, the Gabungan Ketua Cawangan Malaysia (GKCM) decided to withdraw its support for the party’s leadership. The movement claims to have 5,000 supporters.


This was followed today by the resignation from all party posts as well as the leaving of the party by one of its founding members, Kamarulazman Habibur Rahman.


Kamarulazman said that the leadership of Pribumi has their head high in the clouds and are too fixated on becoming the PM.

“Those who worked really hard for the party are now being treated as second-class citizens,” he said.

He added that his departure from Pribumi is being followed by 821 members nationwide, mostly from Negeri Sembilan.


In a feeble attempt to hide the truth, Syed Saddiq attributed Kamarulazman’s departure to “threats” from the government  as he is a teacher.

If this is so, are the 1,321 former members of Pribumi teachers too?

However, when expelled from UMNO in March 2016, Kamarulazman made mention that he does not fear losing his job as a teacher for supporting the Opposition.


It’s not a secret that hundreds of teachers support the Opposition yet they are still teaching. So what excuse can Syed Saddiq give now?

Perhaps, as pointed by blogger Anotherbrickinwall, Mahathir too would leave the divided new party.

I doubt any party would take him. DAP, the favourite choice, is filled with people opposed to the idea of working with Mahathir, let alone allowing him to join.

The same goes to PKR.

Perhaps it is time for Mahathir to leave the withering flower and consider retirement from politics and join the only party that would probably make him happy.

Undang-undang di Malaysia adalah hasil pergabungan di antara akal, adat dan ugama.  Adat adalah merupakan kanun yang tidak bertulis yang dijadikan pegangan hidup oleh orang-orang Melayu sejak dari dahulu lagi.  Untuk dijadikan pegangan rasmi, maka adat diterjemahkan kepada undang-undang bertulis, dan digabungkan dengan akal dan syarak sepertimana yang terdapat dalam undang-undang terdahuu seperti Undang-Undang 99 Negeri Perak dan Undang-Undang Darat/Laut negeri Melaka yang berlandaskan adat dan syariah.

Maka, undang-undang syariah di Tanah Melayu ini telah wujud sebelum pihak Inggeris memperkenalkan undang-undang sivil untuk digunapakai pihak pentadbir selain hal ehwal adat istiadat Melayu dan agama Islam.

Kassim Ahmad berkata kerajaan tiada hak untuk campurtangan dalam hal ehwal Islam

Semalam, kita dikejutan sekali lagi oleh bekas tahanan ISA Kassim Ahmad yang berkata kerajaan tidak sepatutnya campur tangan dalam hal ehwal agama.

Beliau berkata sedemikian dalam satu artikel portal Malaysian Insight yang bertajuk “Kerajaan Tak Perlu Campurtangan Urusan Islam, kata Kassim.”

Kassim berkata, adalah perlu untuk meminda Perlembagaan Persekutuan dengan mengeluarkan “Islam adalah agama Persekutuan.

Portal yang dikendalikan oleh Jahabar Sadiq yang didakwa oleh portal Malaysia Today sebagai dibiayai oleh parti DAP itu memberi gelaran “Sarjana Islam” kepada Kassim yang terkenal dengan pendirian anti-Hadithnya.

Kassim pernah ditahan oleh pihak Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (JAWI) atas dakwaan menghina Islam dan mengingkari pihak berkuasa agama pada tahun 2015 dalam satu seminar bertajuk “Seminar Pemikiran Kassim Ahmad: Satu Penilaian” yang turut dihadiri oleh U-Turn Mahathir.

Kassim pernah ditahan di bawah Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) pada November 1976 kerana berfahaman sosialis komunis.  Fahaman ini didokongi beliau sejak zaman universiti lagi apabila menganggotai Kelab Sosialis Universiti semasa menuntut di Universiti Malaya Singapura.

Petikan Hansard Parlimen pada 23 Mac 1979 yang membincangkan penahanan Kassim Ahmad

Pada 23 Mac 1979, P Patto dari parti DAP telah menyoal Allahyarham (Tan Sri ketika itu) Ghazali Shafie selaku Menteri Dalam Negeri mengenai tahanan Kassim.  Ghazali berkata adalah masih perlu bagi penahanan Kassim di bawah ISA diteruskan.

Namun, dua minggu setelah menjawat jawatan Perdana Menteri, U-Turn Mahathir merupakan orang yang menandatangani arahan pada 30 Julai 1981 supaya Kassim Ahmad dibebaskan.

Kassim adalah pelopor anti-Hadith yang sering menggunakan alasan bahawa hadith telah ditulis sekitar 200 tahun selepas kewafatan Nabi Muhammad SAW.  Fahaman beliau ini berlandaskan penulisan Dr Rashad Khalifa dari Mesir dalam sebuah buku bertajuk “The Computer Speaks: God’s Message to the World.”

Buku ini memberikan bukti-bukti secara saintifik bahawa Al-Quran tidak memerlukan sokongan Hadith kerana telah cukup memadai untuk dijadikan rujukan pedoman umat Islam.

Rashad Khalifa adalah pengasas United Submitters International, sebuah gerakan Qur’aniyun yang menolak hadith.  Rashad juga mendakwa diri beliau sebagai seorang nabi dan mendakwa juga telah diberitahu oleh Jibril bahawa Ayat 3 Surah Yasin adalah merujuk kepada beliau (Rashad).

Fahaman Rashad juga tidak jauh dari seorang lagi “Sarjana Islam” dari Hungary iaitu Ignác Goldziher.  Goldziher, atau nama sebenarnya Yitzhak Goldziher adalah seorang Sarjana dari budapest berbangsa Yahudi.

Yitzhak Goldziher

Goldziher pernah menulis kajian beliau bertajuk Muhammedanische Studien pada tahun 1890 yang mendakwa hadith adalah rekaan manusia 200 tahun setelah kewafatan Nabi Muhammad SAW.  Dakwaan Goldziher ini disangkal oleh Patricia Crone pada tahun 2002 dalam buku beliau bertajuk Roman, Provincial and Islamic Law terbitan Cambridge University Press.

Berdasarkan ajaran Rashad, Kassim telah menolak Hadith sebagai bida’ah yang direka manusia setelah kewafatan Nabi Muhammad SAW dan punca perpecahan umat Islam.  Maka hadith adalah ajaran sesat yang diada-adakan oleh manusia.

Sedangkan pakar hadith dari Universiti King Saud, Muhammad Mustafa Al-A’zami, membuktikan bahwa penulisan hadith sudah dimulai sejak Nabi Muhammad SAW masih hidup.

Sahabat-sahabat Nabi yang telah menulis hadith termasuk Umul Mu’minin Aisyah, Abdullah bin Abbas, Jabir bin Abdullah, Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-Asy, Umar bin Khattab dan Ali bin Abi Thalib.

Dan orang seperti Kassim ini boleh diberi gelaran “Sarjana Islam” oleh portal Malaysian Insight dalam artikel yang menghina agama Islam dan mempersoalkan kedudukan Islam sebagai Agama Persekutuan Malaysia.

 

Orang yang sesat lagi menyesatkan inilah juga yang disokong rakan seperjuangan beliau.

Sokong Kassim! Jangan tak sokong!

Tidaklah menghairankan kerana U-Turn Mahathir juga pernah menyokong buku tulisan Kassim bertajuk “Hadis: Satu Penilaian Semula” yang pernah diharamkan oleh Majlis Fatwa pada tahun 1986.

Dia yang anti Hadith, UMNO juga terpalit

Kassim juga setakat gagalkan mengemukakan bukti bahawa perpecahan umat Islam adalah akibat Hadith dan bukan politik. Beliau yang gemar menggunakan ayat-ayat Al-Quran tertentu bagi menguatkan hujah beliau telah dengan sengaja tidak mengutarakan sekali Firman Allah SWT dalam surah An-Nahl ayat 64 iaitu:

“Dan Kami tidak menurunkan kepadamu (wahai Muhammad) Al-Kitab (Al Quran) ini, melainkan agar kamu dapat menjelaskan kepada mereka apa yang mereka perselisihkan itu dan menjadi petunjuk dan rahmat bagi kaum yang beriman.”

Adakah golongan Qur’aniyun ini akan menidakkan Firman Allah SWT seperti di atas?
