Some time ago, a leading member of the Chinese business community declared that the Chinese do not actually need Chinese politicians and Ministers to represent them. That statement sapped the smugness off the MCA.
In one sense its true, Chinese businesspersons can always talk direct to Malay leaders. They have ingenious ways to convince their Malaysian Malay brethren. That’s an interesting topic to expand. We will do that perhaps later.
In the meantime, maybe the Malaysian Indians should emulate their spirited Chinese brother. Indians don’t require representation by the MIC really. They can do so through Nor Mohamad Yakob, Naina Merican, Azeez Rahim, Zambry Kadir et al no?
They too, can also talk direct to Malay leaders. Tony Fernandez knows how, Ananda Krishna knows how. So do Ravi Menon, Arumugam, Gnalingam. Even the one time driver Kenneth Eswaran knows how too. They ALL know how to. Forget MIC and forget Palanivel.
The rituals performed by Master Ji are to cleanse Najib and Rosmah of spells and charms placed by others. Amavasya is a time of the month to thanksgiving-worship of the ancestors, as well as a time for occult practices. It is conducted monthly because Najib probably believes he is being charmed repeatedly, under constant attack, hence the need to cleanse every month. The placing of ritual items near the polling centre is to create evil winds that may cause confusion among the people and temporary blackouts. It is meant to make friends suddenly and temporarily become enemies. Evidently Najib believes his enemies have placed malay charms on him. A symbolic bath in milk is one of the cleansing practices. Najib is a believer in malay black magic, and Hindu cures. Many malay politicians and businessmen are closet Hindus.Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Friday night swore in Masjid Jamek Guar Perahu near here (Permatamg Pauh) that he did not know or had any connection with Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaarribuu who was murdered in 2006 in Puncak Alam, Selangor. Najib said he was making the swearing although it was not an official swearing made on the Quran.”Wallahi, Wabillahi, Watallahi (With Allah as my witness) I swear I do not know or have any connection with the Mongolian woman. I do not know if others want to swear or not but I know I did no wrong. This is between me and God,” he said. (Bernama, 23 August 2008)Thagarajoo Thangavelu who claimed to be a driver for businessman Datuk Kenneth Eswaran and formerly for politician Datuk K.S. Nallakaruppan in a posting titled “Najib: Muslim by birth, Hindu by practice”.The Malaysian public has been inundated with statutory declarations with this being the third such statutory declaration in the last couple of months, starting with private investigator P. Balasubramaniam’s two sworn statements about Najib’s links with murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu and Pusrawi’s Doctor Mohamad Osman’s statement relating to his medical examination of Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan who has accused Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of sodomy.”Thagarajoo, Nallakaruppan’s one-time driver, swears he brought Mr. Ji to Najib’s house every month to perform Hindu prayers and rituals. And it appears it is still going on until today. Does that, therefore, render Najib’s oath, performed the so-called ‘proper’ Islamic way, null and void?” was the one line in the posting apart from a news article that Najib had sworn on the Quran that he did not know Altantuya.In the statutory declaration dated Aug 22 and made in Kuala Lumpur, Thagarajoo claimed Eswaran was a close friend of Najib and had brought a Hindu priest from Kerala named Mr. Ji to perform rituals regularly at the deputy prime minister’s private residence in Jalan Duta and also at the official residence in Putrajaya.He also claimed that the priest had performed similar rituals before the Ijok by-election to ensure Barisan Nasional’s victory and also to prevent prime minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi from marrying Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah.That same day, Thagarajoo a/l Thangavellu also swore, through a Statutory Declaration, that Najib and his wife, who may be born Muslims, are practicing Hindus. Would, therefore, Najib’s oath, performed the so-called ‘proper’ Islamic way, be valid after all?
