Oh, the shame of it all!

This man said that the "emergency session" of the (Perak) state assembly, held under a tree, was to embarrass the nation in the eyes of the world.

"I don't want to speculate but we can see that they had prepared for the session, with some carrying posters that read 'The World is Watching'."

"It was as if the session was staged for the world to see."

Now I do not see how a constitutional and democratic act such as holding the emergency session, albeit under a tree, can be an embarrassment to the nation in the eyes of the world. Theoretically, should the State Legislative building burn down or be flooded due to the incessant rain which has been whiplashing us in Malaysia recently, does that mean Perak's administrative wheel stops turning while it awaits a new building to be built? Or wait for the water to recede? Rationally, it is not the PLACE that matters, it is the people who attend it, that does. Speaker? CHECK. Assembly men? CHECK. Suspended assembly men not present? CHECK.
Seems perfectly legitimate to me.

If I were the eyes of the world, I would think this :- "What brave men!" "Upholding their constitutional right and fighting for the interest of the Perak-ians."

That is what I would think. After all, the rest of the world have been quiet about this. No one has criticised the legitimate Perak government for upholding their rights.

So Mr. Zambry, let me show you what actually embarrasses the nation in the eyes of the world. It is this :-

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - - Amnesty International on Wednesday condemned Malaysia's move to charge eight people for insulting a sultan on the Internet, saying it was a serious blow to freedom of expression.

Amnesty urged the Malaysian government to drop all the charges, saying the move was a "very troubling step backward."

"This development is a serious blow to freedom of expression in Malaysia and has set a very dangerous precedent for people wishing to express their views on the Internet," Sam Zarifi, Amnesty's Asia-Pacific director, said in a statement.

"The Internet was one of the few venues available for Malaysians to express their views relatively freely, and now it looks like the government will extend its restrictions on free press to the web," he added.

I do not know about you Zambry, but I can feel my cheeks burning from the shame of it all.

Shame that the EYES OF THE WORLD see Malaysia, the so called MODEL ISLAMIC nation, taking a Major step back. Regressing. Going backwards.

That is shame to me. I am embarrassed by that. That stupidity manifests in all forms, shapes and sizes in our administration. That our government and law makers in addition to the act of stupidity and absurdity above also think that Karpal Singh ought to be hauled to court and charged under the Sedition Act for allegedly suggesting that the Sultan of Perak be sued for not dissolving the state assembly and declaring the unlawful grab (in Dr. M's own words) of power by the BN in Perak as legitimate.

My cheeks are burning, piping hot from the sheer embarrassment.

Bad DAP!


You see this UMNO youth mafia wannabe(its not their fault, DAP started it), just SO happened to be at the Parliament grounds and just SO happened met Karpal Singh and they just NICELY approached him to ask him about the incident where Karpal referred to them as "celaka".


The police are apparently investigating the matter but we know what the outcome will be. We are not born yesterday. We know whose side these people are.

You can view for yourselves who started what and who said what, nicely or otherwise, to whom.

I do not even need to take 5 minutes to "investigate" the matter, and here is a list of offences these UMNO Youth people can be charged with, if the police are as Mesra, Cekap and Betul as they claim themselves to be.

Section 339 Penal Code :-
Whoever voluntarily obstructs any person, so as to prevent that person from proceeding in any direction in which that person has a right to proceed, is said wrongfully to restrain that person.

The punishable section is Section 341 of the Penal Code:-
"...punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one month, or with fine which may extend to one thousand ringgit, or both."

Section 340 of the Penal Code:-
"Whoever wrongfully restrains any person in such a manner as to prevent that person from proceeding beyond certain circumscribing limits, is said to "wrongfully confine" that person."

Punishable section is Section 342:-
"...shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine which may extend to two thousand ringgit, or with both."

And then there is Section 351 ASSAULT :-
Whoever makes any gesture or preparation, intending or knowing it to be likely that such gesture or preparation will cause any person present to apprehend that he who makes that gesture or preparation is about to use criminal force to that person, is said to commit an assault.

Section 355:-
Whoever assaults or uses criminal force to any person intending thereby to dishonour that person, otherwise than on grave and sudden provocation given by that person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.

Section 357:-
Whoever assaults or uses criminal force to any person, in attempting wrongfully to confine that person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine which may extend to two thousand ringgit, or with both.

So there PDRM, when will you finish investigating? Hey AG, what are you busy doing??

Religion reigns over humanity

A quick look at this picture and one would never assume he died a "NATURAL DEATH". However that is what the 10 policemen who arrested him and questioned him said.
"He suddenly collapsed after he drank some water."

And that is what the first post mortem said:- "fluid in his lungs".

However, from a second post mortem, it has been revealed that:-

"The UMMC pathologist declared, based on the post-mortem, that Kugan was beaten so badly that his tissues broke down and his kidneys failed, Surendran said.

The pathologist also found that Kugan had suffered hemorrhaging in his trachea, chest, spleen, stomach, the back of his neck and spine, and there were also signs of hemorrhaging in his heart.

The soles of his feet had many bruises caused by beatings and he also suffered blunt trauma to his skull."

Hence, this obviously means he did not just collapse and die. He was beaten to death.

Now, what the AG has done is to reclassify the case as MURDER.One would think that is the logical decision after being informed from the second post mortem that it was indeed the incessant beating that killed Kugan.

Well not for these two NGOs. The Islamic Missionaries and Welfare Malaysia(PEKIDA) and People's Action Front (Barisan Bertindak Rakyat).

PEKIDA:- Tujuan / Matlamat PEKIDA

1. Menegak dan memperjuangkan syiar Islam sesuai dengan ajaran Al-Quran dan Hadis.

2. Mengujudkan taat setia yang kukuh dan tidak berbelah bahagi kepada Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Yang Dipertua Agong, Sultan-Sultan, Dan Raja-Raja Melayu.Kerajaan dan Pemerintah dan mematuhi Perlembagaan dan Prinsip-Prinsip Rukun Negara.

3. Mengujudkan sumber kewangan masyarakat Islam dan menubuhkan Yayasan serta menggalakan ahli untuk bekerjasama memberi bantuan dan sokongan bagi meningkat dan meninggikan taraf kehidupan umat Islam di segala bidang serta mengadakan atau menebus harta, bangunan, dan lain-lain harta.

4. Menganjurkan kerja dan usaha amal kebajikan untuk faedah ahli-ahli.

5. Mempertahankan Negara dari ancaman musuh dan anasir jahat, komunis, dan golongan anti Islam.

6. Mendirikan institusi pendidikan dan menjadikan bidang pendidikan sebagai tugas penting dan utama yang perlu dilaksanakan untuk ahli, anak-anak mereka dan masyarakat umum.

and Barisan Bertindak Rakyat:-


1. Mempertahankan kedudukan Raja-raja Melayu dan hak istimewa orang Melayu dalam Perlembagaan Negara.
2. Menangani hambatan dan cabaran yang mengancam perpaduan Melayu.
3. Menggandakan tindakan ke arah kemajuan orang Melayu merangkumi aspek Duniawi dan Ukhrawi.
4. Meningkatkan kesedaran di kalangan pegawai-pegawai Melayu di dalam perkhidmatan kerajaan supaya mematuhi dan memelihara kepentingan agenda Melayu dalam pelaksanaan dasar-dasar kerajaan yang diamanahkan kepada mereka.

So, from a quick reading of their objectives, missions and er, aims, it does not involve standing up for anyone who is NOT MUSLIM. So hence, this the reason why they lodged a police report against the AG for classifying the investigation of Kugan's death under murder.The reason being the first post mortem said he died of fluid in his lunds. And hence, the AG's decision is against the medical expert's views.

SO, logically speaking, logic being the logic adopted by PEKIDA and BBR(I abbreviated it myself), just because ONE BIASED medical report said he died from fluid in his lungs it MUST mean that is the ONLY way he could have died and the massive injuries which is shown in pictures and on video is a fallacy. (He must have fallen and injured himself and perhaps he may have burnt himself with a iron rod too)

Now, I do not know much about PEKIDA or BBR, but to lodge a police report even though this man has been violently beaten and killed? A human being, a person's right to live violently snatched away? A parent's son murdered by people who are supposed to protect us from harm? And just because he is NOT MUSLIM they protest??? What if Kugan was a Muslim? Will Pekida and BBR challenge the AG's decision?

What type of a sick, perverted, selfish, irrational, inhumane type of organisation are those two? Where is your humanity?!

Does it not amaze you how many people put religion above humanity?

Are you a heretic?

I cannot ask for a better presentation of the words that so many of us want to say but have not had an audience who is worth speaking to, and who will listen to what we have to say. It is typical for the man to ask "ARE YOU A HERETIC?" Because that is always the answer to anyone who does not follow their words and their beliefs.

So the big brouhaha about the use of the word ALLAH. These people who yell and shout about the improper use of the word which they believe is exclusive to Islam and to Muslims who are Malay are uneducated. Like RPK said in his article, China was the first to embrace Islam. Chinese Muslims were way ahead of the Malay Muslims. And in Arab worlds, Allah is used to describe God.

They (being UMNO) ask why not use the word TUHAN? Which in Malay means God, but why should the Herald use TUHAN when ALLAH is the official word for GOD? It says so in the Arabic translation of the Bible. So, now these Malay Muslims are challenging the Arabs and their translation? Or you doubt the authenticity of the language of the Arabs? Who died and made you God of languages?

Even PAS, the party who is forefront in promoting Islam has come out to say that Non-Muslims can use the word Allah.

"KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - The leader of Malaysia's Islamic opposition party says non-Muslims should be allowed to use the word "Allah" to refer to God, questioning a government ban that has been criticized by Christians as a blow to freedom of religion.

Nik Aziz Nik Mat, the influential spiritual leader of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, said that a verse in the Quran in which non-Muslims of Mecca call their God "Allah" supported his point."

Seriously, I do not understand the logic behind the ban on the use of the word "Allah". Apparently it will CONFUSE MUSLIMS. Hmm, lets say one day someone prints something and calls Buddha, say, LORD VISHNU. I will not suddenly have convulsions and break into cold sweat that the God, or the religion that I have grown up with or I have chosen to follow suddenly has a change of name and may actually be tied to Hinduism (though it is but that is another story altogether) and hence I will no longer understand what the heck Buddhism is all about and be blindly following Hinduism. Is that the type of confusion every one is talking about? Because I seriously do not know what other confusions there may be.

Why are Malay Muslims(mostly UMNO and some lost PAS and PKR ones) always so petrified of this so called dilution of their religion? One would think if you are strong enough in your belief, people can spit in your face and call you what ever names they can think of,and you will smile and say what you always LOVE to say when faced with damning evidence contrary to what you allege to be, which is "Only God can judge me".

So if you believe that Only God can judge you, then why force others to bend the way that you insist they do? Let God judge the others. Let God decide on who the so called heretics are because punishment in this earthly world is nothing if you go by the book of your religion, only judgment after death is what we should all be afraid of. This world that we are living in now, is merely temporary. Where we all strive to be the best that we can. And if others do not see what you see, or believe what you believe, Let GOD JUDGE THEM.

Do not place yourself in the shoes of someone you are not worthy to be and judge others.
