This taxidriver received a sms from a Chittarkottaian A PAPER MERCHANT IN LITTLE INDIA IN BRICKFIEDS
‘STOP This hate campaign is based on lies.Maybe he do not know English,this taxidriver is trying to undo the evil intension
Pure lies. But let’s keep the sly fox businessman out of it. They are only good at creating problems and putting people against each other – rich against the poor, poor against the less poor, Hindus against Muslims, Muslims against Christians, upper castes against lower castes, lower cates agaist the lowest castes, and Marathi Manoos against North Indians. It’s time the Chittartkootaian of this country reclaimed diginity, before it’s too late and before it falls to the hate politics of Shiv Sena inspired present leaders of illegal management commite let’s kickthem then out .
Famous Pakistani academic Dr Robina Saigol has written an influential critique of Nation State from feminist perspective. It is known as “Militarization, Nation and Gender: Women bodies as arenas of violent conflicts”. The study explains quite brilliantly the ideological structures which lead to crimes against women during violent conflicts. Pakistan is the specific focus of this study. I am reminded of it after I discovered the fate of Miss Zarina Murree a Baluch woman who went missing along with 429 persons since December 2005 according to Asian Human Rights Commission Report. She is reportedly being abused as a “sex slave” by Pakistan Army. I came to know about her, thanks to the inspiring blog “Grand Trunk Road” which writes about the duality of response on the predicament of two women. The suspected Islamic Fascist terroristDr Aafia Siddiqui and Miss Zarina Murree. The entry can be read here.I will deal with this problem at multiple levels trying to deconstruct the hegemonious discourse on Terrorism. Why a poor school teacher like Miss Zarina Murree would be abused as a “sex-slave” by Mujahid army of Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Dr Saigol explains this phenomenon in general term:
“Recent feminist theories of nationalism have pointed out that theQaum (nation) is essentially feminine in construction. The nation is narrated on the body of women who become an emotionally-laden symbol of the nation, self, the inner, spiritual world and home. One’s motherland or maadar-e-watan, as it comes to be called, becomes invested with the kind of erotic attraction felt towards women, especially in the figure of the mother. The country comes to be appropriated, represented and contained within words which have strong romantic, erotic as well as maternal connotations. The desire for this land/woman/dharti is constructed as masculine desire; the desire to possess it, see it, admire it, love it, protect it and die fighting for it against rivals.
Since the desire for women gets transferred on to the nation and women’s bodies come to signify the nation, communal, regional, national and international conflicts come to be played out on women’s bodies. These bodies thus become arenas of violent struggle. Women are humiliated, tortured, brutally raped, and murdered as part of the process by which the sense of being a nation is created and reinforced”
Thus by kidnapping and than sexually molesting a poor Baluch teacher, Pakistan’s Army is trying to reinforce the ideology of “Islamic Republic of Pakistan”. This a reply to the traitor Baluchs. The ironic fact is the history of Islamic republic taught at school traces the history of Islamic state from the invasion of Sindh by Muhammed Bin Qasim, the Umayyad , who as the myth goes invaded Sindh to defend the “honour” of a Muslim girl. Like all other myths of Islamic Republic’s ideological history this honour laden justification of Arab imperialist assault on Sindh is deconstructed by great Sindhi poet and famous conscientious objectors to 1965 Indo-Pak , Sheik Ayaz in his poem which is the lament of the native girl of Sindh abused by invading Arabs. When Yvonne Ridley, former Taliban prisoner and now a pro Taliban activist and Respect Party affiliate who could very much be suffering from “Stockholm Syndrome” broke the news of Dr Aafia Siddique being sexually molested at Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan, ritualistic drum beating started. The fact that its very hard to dismiss Dr Sidiqque’s links with Al-Qaida and Islamic fascism was ignored. There is a case of abuse of Dr Siddique’s rights and all extra judicial punishments, torture and abuse must be condemned but this is clearly a case of “double discourse”. All the discourse of civil rights, human rights, woman rights, good governance etc in Pakistan favors the ideological interests of Islamic Republic. Thus suspected and alleged sexual molestation of Dr Siddique, an Urdu speaking girl from middle and upper middle classes who is involved in Jihad is the drummed up at all levels in Pakistan from media to text messages on mobile phones asking the young muslim men to follow the example of Muhammed Bin Qasim and deliver the “daughter of Islam” from infidels. Liberals and progressives follow this ideological discourse bound by their ethos of “human rights” and “civil rights”, the fact that Dr Siqqique if was successful in her Jihad would result in a system which doesn’t recognizes even the concept of human rights is ignored by most lefti human rights activists. Whilst they must raise a voice against state abuse they must make sure that their interest is only in the fact that Dr Siddique be brought in a court of Law where she gets a fair trial. Just as Ajmal Kasab has the legal right to fair trial. Nothing more than that. Unfortunately we saw Iqbal Haider becoming party to the the emotional drama created by the Right. He should have kept in mind, what image they created of other abuse victims.Mukhtar Mai, the Saraiki woman raped on orders of village counsel is a “whore” according to moral punjabi middle class. Dr Shazia Murree, the Baluch doctor raped by Captain Hamad was declared a “slut”and government narrated the stories of “condoms” in her home with a question why did a good girl had “condoms” in her home??
The great respect to woman, civil rights and human rights expressed by Islamic Republic and its ideological apparatus the media and the chattering class in cases of suspected Taliban and other ideological allies clearly vanishes when such atrocities are done to “others” of Islamic Republic by establishment. Thus the documented use of rape as a war tactic by Pakistan Army and Jamate Islami in 1971’sBangladesh’s war of Liberation is dismissed as “Indian propaganda”, similar use of rape as a tactic to curtail MRD in 1980s in interior Sindh and Saraiki region of Punjab is never spoken of. The rape and genocide of Baluch people by Pakistani state again fails to gain any mass support or even media attention. Why this happens. Dr Rubina Saigol writes in “State and the Limit of Counter-Terrorism: The Case of Pakistan and SriLanka”
“The foundational myth of Pakistan is the two-nation theory, which
posits Muslims and Hindus as two mutually exclusive, separate and
irreconcilable nations. This ideology divided the freedom struggle
against British rule as early as 1909 with the Morley-Minto Reforms in
which the principle of separate electorate was acknowledged by the
British government. It subsequently remained the main slogan of the
Muslim League and led to the division of independence by religion.
Within the two-nation paradigm, two states emerged, a Hindu India and
a Muslim Pakistan, although Indians generally see their country as secular.
The emergence of Pakistan within a struggle divided by religion meant
that religious identity came to be the defining characteristic of Pakistani
citizenship. This implied that other, sometimes older, sources of identity
in language, region or culture had to be suppressed if not entirely erased.
The construction of Pakistani identity as Muslim required the forgetting
of the identities of Bengali, Sindhi, Punjabi, Pathan or Baloch”
This is the root of all the double discourse in Pakistan. This is the bases of Bengali Genocide, this is base of failure of democracy and this is the base of Rape of Zarina Murree. Dr Saigol is one of those few academics from Pakistan who recognizes the fact that most of the problems of Pakistan like failure of democracy and Islamic Fascism are result of the “state” itself. She also traces the roots of Taliban terrorism in two nation ideology of Pakistani state. Just have a look at the report of Asian Human Rights Commission here .
“The Asian Human Rights Commission has received further details in the case of Ms. Zarina Marri, a 23-year-old schoolteacher from Balochistan province, who has been held incommunicado in an army torture cell at Karachi, the capital of Sindh province and used as a sex slave, please see our statement;
Finally the cat is out of sac. The latest “victim” of Islamophobia, Eurocentricism, Secular Fascism and other such terms which Pakistani right wing, liberal and confused progressive misuse turns out to be a Jihadi. For months now Pakistani Right wing media have lamented the “innocent muslim girl” the great scientist of MIT, the “good mohajir” girl Dr Aafia Siddiqui, the “daughter of Islam” and “Pakistan” who is being abused at the hands of non muslims. Comparisons were drawn with the mythical story of alleged abuse of Arab women at the hands of Sindhis which resulted in invasion of Sindh by barbaric Muhammed Bin Kassim. The fact was lamented while in those times 17 y old Kassim heard the cry of the “abused” sister and invaded Sindh and spread the glorious message of Islam [with not so glorious genocide of Sindhis], our 17 y old boys are busy in music and dancing whiles the daughter of Islam the innocent naïve girl Aafia Siddiqui is being sexually molested.
The day Dr siddiqui was produced before a court of law In USA I became suspicious of the whole story of “disappearance”. The fact that she was produced in a court of law indicated that US administration had a case. Many others remain disappeared and are not produced in courts. Now Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s ex husband has finally broken his silence and have spoken toBBC. He has told BBC Urdu that the innocent naïve AAfia was an ideologically motivated islamist. She wanted to go to Jihad. Mr Amjad Aziz Khan told BBC urdu that during their marriage he kept trying to convince Dr Aafia Siddiqui that Islam doesn’t allow “extremism” and she should not indulge in extremist activities but she refused. He further told the reporter that Dr Siddique had contacts with Pakistani extremists and terrorists. He named Aamar Baluchi , Aziz Paracha and Majid Khanwith whom she was continuously in contact. It is to be noted that all these are terrorists and Mr Paracha was convicted by a court In United States for providing material support to Al Qaidia and was sentenced to 30 years in prison…
Mr Khan asserted that after the 9/11 attacks on United States Dr Siddique kept forcing him to go to Afghanistanand participate in Jihad against United Statesbut he kept refusing. Mr Khan says that these were the reasons their marriage didn’t worked. Mr Khan took Dr Siddiqque to a big Maddrassa in Karachi and consulted with the eminent Mufti Rafi Usmani [Duo bandi /Wahabi cleric] who tried to persuade Dr Siddique that Jihad is not an immediate duty for both of them. Refusing to accept the advice she divorced Mr Khan in few weeks and left with the Kids.
The chilling fact that Dr Sidique was an ideologically motivated Islamist in contact with Al-Qaidia puts a lot of things in perspective, the people whom she identified with have blood on their hands, and they are responsible for heinous crimes against humanity, suicide bombings which have killed innocent civilians, woman and children. The want to bring a system in which there will no human rights and fascist states will be formed. She agreed to all this and was an active supporter of this monstrous ideology. Despite this Pakistani secularists and human rights activists climbed on the band wagon of Pakistani Right wing. The dispassionate interest of Pakistani human rights activists in this should only have been on making sure that Dr Siddique gets a fair trial. But even people like Senator Iqbal Haiderbecame a party to this Jihadi propaganda by engaging in the emotional circus constructed by the family. Pakistani secularists went out of line and ignored the warning signals which were always there.
The fact that this whole story was broken by a person whose mental health itself is under question mark and who is a Taliban supporter they should have been cautious but caution is a thing Pakistani modernists don’t know.Yvonne Ridley could be suffering from Stockholm syndrome or she could be an Islamic fascist herself. Than the section of media and society which rallied to her cause and the degree of response left nothing secret of whose “girl” Dr Siddiqui was. The fact that same people havnt said a word about the fate of “Zarina Marri” shows that all this has nothing to do with human rights but was ideologically motivated.
Not only Dr Siddique left her husband she put the life of her children in danger by taking them with her in Jihad. This is an extraordinary case of neglect of parental duties and putting the life of children in danger. Mr Khan have stated in his statement that she was not kidnapped but was hiding on purpose with the children trying to get into Afghanistan from where she was finally captured.This gets further confirmation from the article written by Mr Farooqi who is maternal uncle [Mammu] of Dr Siddiqque in which he wrote that Dr Aafia Siddque met him in 2008 and stayed at his home in 2008 and told him that she wanted to go toAfghanistan for Jihad.
Now Dr Sidiqque is mentally unfit to undergo trial , she is not going to pay for her crimes or prove her innocence, But Pakistani secularists instead of working on Jihadi agenda should work to give Dr Siddique’s children safe environment. The fact that her sister and mother are close to Jihadi quarters will keep the children constantly under threat of abuse which they suffered at the hands of their mother so their father be given the custody of these poor kids. They have a right to grow up free of abuse.
Now that facts are coming out on Aafia I am suspicious of yet another “Islamist human rights” activist, Amna Janjua who is wife of an ex ISI mercenary who has “disappeared”. While we must always condemn illegal acts of states we must never become a party in crime with these fascists.here.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2009
If you think this is just Anwar’s problem, then, think again because if the justice system in Malaysia is damaged beyond repair, then, all Malaysians could be confronted with situations like Kugan, Anwar and a whole host of other abusive and life threatening occasions experienced by the less fortunate.
To many, it was unreal. Ten years ago, Anwar had faced a similar charge which saw him being jailed until the conviction and sentence were overturned on appeal in 2004.
In the latest episode, he was arrested on July 16 by balaclava-clad police – a scene reminiscent of that in 1998 – but freed a day later after being questioned and made to undergo a medical examination.
His supporters claimed that the government would detain him pending trial, ostensibly to prevent his campaigning for the Permatang Pauh by-election. But when Anwar claimed trial on Aug 7, he was freed on a RM20,000 personal bond.
Much else has happened outside the courtroom, including the allegation that Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had a ‘hidden hand’ in the matter since he had met with Saiful prior to the complaint. Najib has denied this.
In 1997, Anwar wanted to go after a senior minister, who had been colluding with local authorities to alienate land in Johor, Kedah, Langkawi and Sepang. Of course TUN MAHATHIR won’t have this happen to the then UMNO treasurer. In the 90s, the ACA and the AG opined that there was a case against Rafidah over the allocation of shares to her son-in-law. TUN MAHATHIR stopped the proposed prosecution. In the late 90s, the Director-General of the EPU was “caught” with a rather large bundle of cash in his office drawer by the ACA. Again, TUN MAHATHIR said “no” to the proposed prosecution.What would be different if the MACC had been in place at those times ?
THE DATES THAT EXPOSED THE MASTER CRIMINALS AT WORK
Everyone knows Pattail got promoted to AG
For his role in Anwar’s case for sodomy
Maha Shithead purposely brought him
To stop and kill Anwar Ibrahim
They now trying to do the same scenario
Najis, Musang, Pattail, bastards, the trio
Trying, again to do it all over
But round one went to Anwar’s favour
The judges have become brave and daring
Saying enough is enough to your raping
Of the court and the judiciary
With your repeated cases of sodomy
The exact dates Anwar received the support and assurance from the BN MPs cannot be ascertained by us. While, all these MPs have indicated support for Anwar, pending his return to Parliament, we can only approximate the beginning dates where initial negotiations were taking place, between end March 2008 and mid April 2008. This was the period immediately after the general election.
The master network of Mahathir is large! It spreads across the country. Their network has detected this movement from Anwar!
The criminals at work!
A clear picture of the crimes of these two evils are described here in the chronology of dates beginning 11th. May 2008.
11th. May 2008 – Najib met Mahathir (It is here the drama began, started by Mahathir in calling Najib a coward in April. The big evil engineered the small evil Najib to its front door. Needless to say the true drama that is going to be unfolded for the next few months began here, only to be polished later!)
The period between 12th May and 28th. June 2008, where all the make-up men, artists and props were designed to perfection to stage this truly Malaysian Mahathir-Najib drama! The drama needed to be staged fast to deprive Anwar from entering Parliament. On 19th. May, as per their master plan Mahathir left UMNO, together with Sanusi, etc. This created much interest amongst Malaysians and the international community, distracting every one from the actual complex drama that is being staged by Najib.
29th. June 2008 – Police report was filed by Saiful. Anwar took shelter at the Turkish Embassy. The international community condemned the police report. Their first drama nearly backfired. While the proof of innocence falls on Anwar’s shoulder, the enemy is not waiting to waste time on this anymore, because the rest will be taken care of by their junior conspirators, to ensure that Anwar will be forever distracted and remain engaged in the framed-up sodomy.
16th. July 2008 – The enemies arrested Anwar and locked him up overnight. This was the day Anwar supposed to announce the resignation of his wife from the parliamentary seat. It was shelved. The world condemned and too many voices called for the release of Anwar. They had no choice. Anwar was released the next day. The criminal’s first plan backfired completely. Please note that the criminals were aware of Anwar’s every move, while Anwar was totally ignorant of plots against him. This is how all action-packed dramas are staged. We the people, the innocent fools watch silently not knowing whether there was a drama in the first place. We are always distracted by these criminals, who are so used to get what they want from us. They always show us their good side. This is what we call a plot within another plot! They will be at their best, when they engineer the worst!
31st July 2008 – Wan Azizah informed the press that she is resigning as a member of parliament.
6th August 2008 –The date of nomination and election was announced by the Election Commission. The enemies also announced that Anwar must appear at the police station, on 7th August, to formally charge him on the sodomy case. The criminals were planning again one more time before Anwar file in his nominations. This time to bury his political career once and for all. And lock him up for good after the formal charge.
“This is the actual time the criminals were furious with Raja Petra. Raja Petra became their deadliest enemy for releasing Dr Osman’s SD on the same day at the point of arrest. Their plot again failed. Failed miserably. Anwar was saved by Raja Petra on this very crucial date. As expected on 7th August, Anwar was formally charged, but not detained in the lock-up.”
10th August to 25th August 2008 – The criminals were trying very hard to destroy Anwar’s political career between these dates. Anwar was alerted and our postings were featured in Malaysia Today warning Anwar of the plot to disqualify him on technical errors on his nomination papers. Anwar engaged another proxy should he be disqualified. Attempts were made on that day to disqualify Anwar, but the criminals got frighten after seeing
Anwar’s huge crowd. The BN government brought its entire government machineries to canvass at Permatang Pauh. A foreign journalist told us; practically the capital of Malaysia was shifted to Permatang Pauh during these dates. Leaving the Parliament as a white elephant without MPs to transact its normal business. It was unprecedented in Malaysian election history. Mahathir’s silence during this canvassing period was telling. For he and he alone knew, no way Anwar can be defeated in his home turf. Those who try are fools indeed! Najib headed this election campaign. The only catch phrase the entire leadership of UMNO was coached to speak about was sodomy, not their election agenda. Umno leaders and members were fools not knowing what game was being played by these two evils, except Tengku Razaleigh and Abdullah Badawi, for they knew too well what happens when these two evils get together.
Swearing and more swearing. While the testimony of Romlan did help, the entry of Tok Guru Nik Aziz during the last days of canvassing despite his illness changed the entire scenario. We believe this is the point of time Tok Guru knew what was really happening and what the evils were up to. Anwar won by a huge majority. Huge cracks appeared in the criminals’ next course of actions. But they were not defeated by their cruel fantasies!
The evils plot on the night of defeat!
On this night of defeat, the criminals plotted to ban access to Malaysia Today and other “offensive” websites. They have to put a permanent stop to the ever increasing “danger” of Raja Petra and gangs. They started with Malaysia Today. The cries of the people went louder! Friends, please note that no one has accepted claim to this evil action so far! Each is trying to protect another, for they too are fools manufactured under Mahathir’s factory! The proprietor of this factory may have changed, but the products manufactured remain the same!
The most sickening move of all is to plot to revise the budget of this country. To revise budget 2009 to appease Sabah and Sarawak. What sort of evils are these, running this country at the whims and fancies of their crooked minds! Don’t they have a limit to their nonsense! Or they need to transgress all boundaries of morality to achieve their twisted aims! These are true evils at work!
28th. August 2008 – Anwar was sworn in as a member of parliament. Najib and Abdullah were absent. Perhaps this was the first day Mahathir looked really an outcast, with Anwar inside the parliament. Najib turned up only the next day, being the Budget day. That was the first time in the history of Malaysia; the budget was revised during the last moment to fit in the development programme for Sabah and Sarawak. This we knew was the work of Najib misleading Abdullah, the day before when both were absent in the parliament house. Najib was being educated well. Mahathir knew from the beginning that Anwar had the numbers. All these MPs would defect only if Anwar becomes an MP. Mahathir and Najib were plotting this game well. But Anwar is not stupid this time. He already prepared a much better reform programme which is more workable to the current and future well-beings of Malaysia. Anwar criticized Abdullah’s budget for lacking competitiveness, which our economists agree.
5th September 2008 – Dr Osman appeared in front of the media for the first time. This has shaken Najib, a little. The criminals need to plan for their next course of action, but have to cover their tracts too. This is the delay they cannot afford. He knew now there is no way to implicate Anwar, bearing in mind that Anwar was also privy to KL General Hospital (2nd report), which Anwar declared during election campaigning.( Incidentally, the second report has also nullified Anwar from any wrong-doing.)
Najib’s anger naturally would turn to Raja Petra as the main culprit who seems to be a constant stumbling block to all his grand plans. It was Malaysia Today which released the SD first. Najib knew unlike the private investigator’s SD, he cannot fix up the SD of Dr. Osman this time around, because he already appeared in public to attest to the SD he made!
5th September to 10th September 2008 – This is the most crucial dates in their next grand plan. Their constant companion and an excellent scapegoat. Muhyiddin met up (the evil word is summoned) with Mahathir. Their grand plan is to get rid of Abdullah. And they also need to fix up Anwar, by transferring Anwar’s case to the High court. They need to kill several birds but with many stones, unfortunately they aren’t many left. Transferring the case to high court would be an easy plan, as Abdul Gani Patail is their own guardian at law. This is also the dates where Muhyiddin was instructed to inform Najib to proceed with their last game plan, to convince Abdullah to implement the Operasi Lallang in disguise (Mahathir’s specialty, in times of duress.) Main target Anwar and Raja Petra. Strongest weapon, Islam and condemnation of leaders for Raja Petra. Threat of national security and financial security for Anwar. This factory does not seem to run out of product lines! But for how long!
The scheming Najib, with suggestions from the evil, Mahathir, also need to ensure that if everything else fails, his only recourse is time, which is falling short. His back-benchers club must be sent out to an unknown nation to study new techniques of producing newer products, which they need badly, as the product lines needed to be improved constantly with changing taste and time.
10th September 2008 – Anwar’s legal team was taken by surprise, not knowing that the prosecutors planned to transfer the case to high court. The case was fixed for 24th September. Hearing completed. Judgment from Justice Komathy on 7th October 2008., in favour of Anwar. The case will remain in the lower court.
But on this same date 10th September. Muhyiddin made an announcement that Mahathir is interested in joining Umno, and the evil Mahathir made the same announcement. They always make “good” announcements in Malaysia to distract Malaysians from their crooked plots! This is a part of their grand strategy, protecting Najib, as otherwise Abdullah would not be happy. The crooked Najib must always be seen as neutral in these criminals’ grand plan. Abdullah is a sacrificial cow in Najib’s hand, when comes to implementations of tougher actions. He is a scapegoat used by Khairy for monetary issues of the government. A sleepy head Prime minister. Always dream big but poor in implementing all that he wants. A crook with his own boundary! A flip-flop man with a flip-flop team! All he needs, comforts and luxuries with no work done.
11th September 2008 – This is the most important date of the evil calendar. How many of the evils have met up, we don’t know. Probably 5 to 7. We can tell you there are police, law and order, and BN leaders. We are not naming them, we are not certain completely.
1) To create confusion, instigating racist sentiments amongst people so that Anwar’s agenda of taking over the government will not materialize. Any pea-sized brain will tell you; this is the specialization area of Khir Toyo! What a gift in waiting with Kelana Jaya gathering around the corner! Did he attend the meeting?
2) To arrest Raja Petra and detain him for good under ISA. Any pea-sized brain will tell you; this is a moment of opportune for Syed Hamid who is yet to reply to Raja Petra’s letter seeking indemnities. (Raja Petra’s letter was sent on 9th Sept, with ultimatum for action by 12th Sept). Did he attend the meeting?
3) To detain Teresa Kok, Sin Chew reporter (last minute added in, because Ahmad Ismail camp was not happy that he alone was punished) under ISA. This is their style. The government of the day can be run even by racist crooks, if their power base seems threatened in any way! These arrests are needed to create confusions and anger so that the public can take to the streets. Easing the way for interested parties to clamp down the country with an emergency rule! Any pea-sized brain will tell you, if all the arms of government are working together, they must have the yes man, Ismail Omar, to tag along. Did he attend the meeting!
4) To arrest Anwar Ibrahim under ISA. The original date of his arrest planned immediately after Raja Petra’s arrest and before the Kelana Jaya gathering. If this does not work, then Khir Toyo specialist in monkey tricks can carry on with his act in the KL streets and if he fails there is a big circus waiting for him at Kelana Jaya! But to arrest Anwar, they have to face the condemnation of international communities. Were they prepared for it? Arrest they must! Any pea-sized brain can tell you that to arrest Anwar Ibrahim; you need the go-ahead from the two top men! Did Abdullah and Najib attend the meeting?
Raja Petra was arrested as planned on the 12th September, together with the other two. Huge outcries from the people and opposition leaders followed. Sin Chew reporter was released the next day, after a flip-flop announcement by Syed Hamid! The followers of orders normally are not experts in covering their tracts! Anwar must be arrested at all cost. More cries from the people and opposition leaders followed, including from their own camp, probably these off mould products do not conform to their “stringent” standards! The criminals plan backfired. Khir Toyo’s plans too never succeeded! Huge outcries from the people but no one took the street! Khir began to know for the first time in his life, the other side of people’s power! The pale face of him shows! BN leadership headed by Najib deputized by Abdullah (this is how the world perceive), feared for the first time. Mahathir too, we were told, true to his crocodile fashion, sheepishly condemned the ISA. What a splendid act! The evil engineer who brutalized the nation for 22 years suddenly realized ISA is cruel! What he did no tell, he has seen and thought worst than that. His twisted-leftist-Mugabe brain constantly churning and scheming evils non-stop, suddenly ran short of “ideas”!
The arrest of Anwar was called off just for a while, while these two “geniuses” paused for a moment, with their MPs having learnt much in Taiwan, planning to study casinos in Macao!
The change of government that was announced by Anwar never took place on 16th. September 2008.
This is the pause the criminals needed for a moment to focus on the removal of Abdullah. This is the reason why the criminals have spared Anwar for a moment.
But Raja Petra must always remain under detention. If Raja Petra is released, then he will destroy all their evil plans. The criminals know this well.
17th September 2008 – Najib became the Finance Minister. Is Abdullah so kind to switch the portfolio or Najib was taking instruction to take over the finance ministry. Muhyiddin on the other hand, under instruction from evil Mahathir, to press Abdullah to bring forward Badawi’s stepping down date. Which Abdullah did, and announced he will step down in March. This announcement was made recently.Are we fools to believe that Raja Petra’s case was adjourned for a long period of time until November 12, because the trial judge was too sick? Or Raja Petra must be kept away for a long period of time, for other “valid” reasons. But he must be kept away, like it or not! He is too dangerous when he is outside!
We will not comment on any event after 20th September, as a new set of events are unfolding. We are keeping track closely. Suffice to say at this time that Mukhriz will lose the election of Youth leader because Mahathir said so! If Mahathir says, then it is always true!
It is only Mahathir and Najib who know, the next game plan! Maybe there are others involved too in this scheme designed by the master conspiraAs long as the government is prepared to sign blank checks, the Malays may call themselves supreme but they’ll always be counted among the the dismal progress of their ethnic group. 30% is not a big deal and I don’t think any Chinese Malaysian begrudge them of that. And if those who have benefited from the NEP have been responsible citizens and go on to grow and multiply as all good stewards should, they would not The problem with all our Malay supremacist politicians is that they’re too dumb to understand the reason for only have met the 30% target. They would have far exceeded it. Instead, the BN government and its kind give them a blank check. I don’t need to be a Malay, but if I have an endless supply of blank checks, I’d be quite happy to splurge several millions on sheer indulgence. Why should I work my butt off when I can play in the world’s playground of the rich?
The And it’s not surprising that the author thinks some kind of dictatorship is good for Malaysia. We’ve had 22 years of Mahathir. We should not have to go through the same nightmare again. Yes we did grow, but it’s all physical, and fleeting. We have failed to develop our most precious assets – human capital – which took flight and are still taking flight – perhaps more vigorously than cash belonging to foreign investors.
Brave ones with CONSCIENCE and INTERGRITY display their individuality and independence of spirit and mind. They CANNOT BE SUBDUED with intimidation and threats .SYABAS to Zaid and Yong for their open support of PKR AND PKATAN by their presence.
Saiful’s complaint was challenged when a medical examination – done on the same day he lodged the police report – allegedly found no signs of sodomy.
He then swore on a Quran in a mosque to back his claim, but the shadow of political interference fell over this as well. The imam who witnessed the oath-taking said he was instructed to do so.
WHAT’S NEXT: The sodomy trial has not made much headway since August, as technical arguments have prevailed. The court is expected to hear the substantial arguments in the coming year.
Clash of the titans
Wouldn’t something be amiss in Malaysian politics if the nation’s top two leaders aren’t pitted against one another? The year did not disappoint in this respect.
BN’s disastrous showing in the March general election brought out a metaphorical keris in Umno – this time the business end of it was pointed at party president and premier Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
Initially, it was unclear who was holding the dagger, given the groundswell of discontent over the coalition’s ‘gift’ to the opposition – four state governments, failure to re-take Kelantan and voters’ rejection of many veteran leaders.
Although ‘undur Pak Lah’ messages appeared on banners in public, Abdullah’s decimated team backed his leadership. Former party head Dr Mahathir Mohamad merely intensified the noisy bombardment from the sidelines.
Abdullah came undone when the economy came under pressure due mainly to the spike in global crude oil price and the US credit crunch. There was no hiding the resentment now.
Adding to the panic, PKR’s Anwar Ibrahim drummed up his claim of being able to take over the federal government by Sept 16. With Umno due to hold elections in December, the tussle at the top fed into the bickering at the bottom.
Abdullah finally reacted, swapping his finance portfolio for Najib’s defence portfolio and holding out the lure of direct transition to his deputy. It might have worked except that Umno vice-president and senior minister Muhyiddin Yassin took exception to the cosy arrangement.
On Sept 21, at the Umno supreme council meeting, Abdullah was confronted by the very leaders who had supported him. They pushed him to state by Oct 9 if he planned to contest the polls, before the nomination process began.
In what appears to be a face-saving move, although Abdullah claimed that it was done to prevent the rift from widening, a compromise was struck with Najib.
Polls were moved to March and Abdullah agreed to relinquish the presidency – by convention, also the premiership – to Najib if the latter had enough support in the party. Najib took the post uncontested, with 98 percent of the nominations.
WHAT’S NEXT: There is trepidation about a return to the dark days of ‘Mahathirism’ under Najib’s tenure, alongside talk that the out-manoeuvred Anwar is only biding his time to let the latter’s skeletons out of the closet. Muhyiddin’s moves merit a close watch as well.
Anwar completes his comeback
The Aug 26 Permatang Pauh by-election was called after incumbent Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail of PKR vacated the parliamentary seat, so that her husband Anwar Ibrahim could return to active politics.
Dubbed as the ‘mother of all by-elections’, it was held at a time of intense speculation about a takeover of the federal government by Pakatan Rakyat through defections from ruling lawmakers.
The contest was hyped by PKR as Anwar’s ‘road to Putrajaya’, possibly as a morale booster for more BN parliamentarians to cross over to the opposition alliance.
Anwar had held the seat from 1982 but was unable to contest the 1999, 2004 and 2008 general elections due to his conviction for corrupt practice and subsequent five-year ban on participation in active politics. The prohibition was lifted in April this year.
During the 10-day campaign, BN played up the sodomy allegation against Anwar but PKR pulled out its trump card at the eleventh hour when an imam admitted that he was instructed to witness an oath-taking ceremony by accuser Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
The campaign saw money pouring into the constituency from both BN and PKR.
Anwar made a triumphant return with a bigger majority of 15,671 over his rivals – BN’s Arif Shah Omar Shah and Akim president Hanafi Hamat – and was sworn in as Opposition Leader in Parliament.
WHAT’S NEXT: Watch the Jan 17 Kuala Terengganu by-election, the second since the general election in March. Will the BN make an impact or will it see the loss of another seat?
Public whipping for BN
When Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced the dissolution of the Parliament on Feb 13, many BN politicians thought that the 12th general election would see the ruling coalition retaining its two-thirds majority in Parliament.
However, Malaysians decided otherwise on March 8 after a 13-day campaign, and deprived BN of its majority in the House. The opposition won 82 out of 222 parliamentary seats, with an all-time high of 31 seats for PKR, 28 for DAP and 22 for PAS.
Equally devastating for them was that opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat won four states and retained Kelantan – all of it contributing to BN’s worst results in electoral history.
BN partners MCA, Gerakan, MIC and PPP all suffered heavy defeats, with casualties including their national leaders. Umno, which had claimed that it could win enough seats to form the federal government on its own, only won 79 seats, falling way below its projection.
Voters dealt the telling blow because of issues such as inflation, shortage of goods, fuel subsidies, rising crime, mismanagement, corruption, tainted elections and racial inequality.
Simmering anger among Indian Malaysians – long regarded as BN loyalists – resulted in a swing towards the opposition.
WHAT’S NEXT: PM-NAJIB Abdul Razak can expect a torrid time when he takes over in March, as he faces not just political turmoil but economic uncertainty – not to mention a waiting Anwar Ibrahim.
