Tongue Tornado! Mother of all Prostitute Now, Politics is all about ASSHOLE Posturing of Kimma’s Parayian Syed Ibrahim and Amir Hamzah Abdul Rajok

The Malaysian Indian Muslim Congress (Kimma) a.k.a Mamak Association has asked the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, to revoke the datukship of former Bar Council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan for planning an illegal gathering on July 9.Ambiga Sreenevasan is a colossus of intellect and integrity in the Malaysian legal fraternity. Ask any lawyer and they will tell you. Here is what Wikipedia has to say:Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan (born 1956) is a Malaysian lawyer who served as the Malaysian Bar chairlady from 2007 to 2009.In March 2009, she became one of the eight recipients for the 2009 Secretary of State’s Award for International Women of Courage Awards. In the ceremony, the United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented, “… Ambiga Sreenevasan, has a remarkable record of accomplishment in Malaysia. She has pursued judicial reform and good governance, she has stood up for religious tolerance, and she has been a resolute advocate of women’s equality and their full political participation. She is someone who is not only working in her own country, but whose influence is felt beyond the borders of Malaysia. And it is a great honor to recognize her and invite her to the podium.”References: “Remarks by Clinton on International Women of Courage Awards”. America.gov. United States. 11 March. Retrieved 2 December 2009.Power is the glue of politics. That is why a government is expected to be in array and opposition generally in disarray. Ideology is a fickle custodian of unity in an age of convenience. Its absence has eliminated the difference between single-party rule and coalition government. Both are held together by individual or sectarian self-interest, which is why they last. Ideology is a differentiator; it makes a partnership untenable even if the partners consider it sustainable. Sentiment is irrelevant to any political marriage. This is true of all democracies where coalitions become necessary. Politicians live for power; why would they invite a premature death?Indian Muslim politics, reduced to minimalist, notional ideology, devoid of individual or party accountability, is peculiarly suited to coalitions. If there were accountability, the KIMMA Syed Ibrahim  the great ballsucker would not  been in the Senate,.if not for his ballsucking Because there is none, the current coalition will survive without either condemnation or confession. An occasional spot of PR-driven tinkering is all that is needed.Draupadi called Karna “a charioteer’s son” rejecting him at her swayamvar. She lived to regret her words and lusted for the man through her life; Karna never forgave her that slight. Later, at her Palace of Illusions, drunk on her husbands’ success, Draupadi laughed at Duryodhana as he stumbled and fell, saying “Son of a blind man would be blind himself” . That slight led to her disrobing , which led to the battle of Mahabharata.Words uttered in haste, without consideration , often lead one to big trouble. Wrongful acts are often easier to forgive or forget, but hurtful words keep playing on the mind and heart. A lashing of the tongue can sometimes be more severe than physical hurt. Words uttered irresponsibly cannot be taken back and often have the power to change our lives. Look at how a few words spoken under influence of drugs and alcohol put paid to the upward rise of one of the world’s most talented designers, John Galliano.Just three words uttered together “Talaq , talaq , talaq” can sever marital ties forever ; no wonder Islam warns proponents to utter the words only after serious consideration and family consultation . Not just anger, even words uttered in humour can have the potential for disaster . Recently a man jokingly typed “talaq , talaq , talaq” thrice in a skype chat with his wife. In a fix when he realized the significance of what he had done, he sought clarification. A ruling issued by Darul Uloom Deobandi, one of Islam’s leading authorities on religious law, clarified that his divorce was real and the woman would have to remarry another man, and be with her second husband for a year before she could divorce him to remarry her first husband.In a free-wheeling conversation, a senior colleague known for his philosophical world views said, “You know, the tongue is the source of all trouble – it makes you say things you never meant to say! Then consider taste, which also resides in the tongue. The tongue makes you overeat, which results not just in being overweight, but in innumerable health problems as well!Golden words indeed, and they set me thinking. Remember all doctors ask you to poke your tongue out for diagnostic purposes? The texture and colour of the tongue can apparently give a doctor a good indication of your general health condition . The same tongue poked out without the doctor’s suggestion can be construed in many different manners. In movies of yore, the heroine would poke out her little pinky at the hero in a flirtatious gesture before running away just beyond reach. A nervous flick of the tongue to hastily moisten dry lips can be a very seductive gesture calculated to drive a man wild! Children use poking of the tongue as a derisive or challenging gesture , often accompanied by showing the thumb toI remember a group family picnic at Surajkund as a child. Wandering away from our parents, we were accosted by some beer swiveling aggressive youngsters who got a kick out of scaring us with shouts and lewd gestures. We ran away from them, but just as we were almost on safe ground, one of the kids in the group turned around, thrust out his tongue and showed a thumb (today’s equivalent would be showing the finger) to them. This enraged the guys and they ran towards us throwing their bottles in our direction . Thankfully we had reached the area where our parents sat and those were the days when just the sight of adults was still enough to scare away even drunk young men!Indeed, by disciplining this one bag of muscles, the tongue, one can claim to have achieved control over a major part of one’s life! Many are the emotions the tongue achieves for us. Surprise and regret are also depicted by a poking out of the tongue and biting iEver wondered why Goddess Kali is always portrayed with her red tongue thrust out and dancing on Lord Shiva’s body? According to the Markandeya Purana, in her form as Goddess Durga, when Kali’s anger against the demons Sambhuand Nishambu couldn’t be controlled and she kept on her path of destruction , the Gods enlisted the help of her consort Lord Shiva. Shiva lay down amongst the demons on whose bodies Durga was dancing. When she realized that she was dancing on her husband Shiva’s body, stunned, Durga thrust out her tongue in surprise and regret and remained frozen. That is the way the Goddess is depicted always nowOf course the tongue, an essential tool in speech for humans, is also responsible for many pleasures. Sweet-tongued talk has the power of healing and pleasuring as nothing else does. Silver tongued are those people who with smartalecky talk can worm their way into hearts or through tough situations. Indeed, we are often warned about people who talk too sweetly! For every John Galliano who paved the path to his destruction with the help of an irresponsible tongue, there are many who sweet-talk their path up fanstastic careersComing to animal tongues, a serpentine tongue depicts deceit and untruthfulness, as a serpent’s tongue is forked. Human tongues have just one tip, which signifies the unity of truthful speech. It testifies to the fact that there is one truth, but many lies. If a dog’s laving tongue is an indication of its loyalty and love for us, we use the poor buffalo’s tongue as a delicacy to be savoured. Considered an exotic meat high on nutritional value, buffalo’s tongue has also been used by native American Indians as a fly-swatters , or hollowed out for baby shoes!Coming back to more ‘palatable’ uses of the tongue, tongue-in-cheek humour is widely appreciated while a slip of the tongue can cause acute embarrassment at times. And then of course, tongue twisters have forever been a source of joy. To wind up,


Kimma Youth chief Amir Hamzah Abdul Rajak said the action should be taken against Ambiga for defying the authorities by planning to go ahead with the rally.Kimma’ call for the withdrawal of the state award was made in a memorandum submitted to Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Shamsul Baharin Hasan at Istana Iskandariah here today.Speaking to reporters after handing over the memorandum, Amir Hamzah claimed that that Ambiga tried to instigate the people, especially youths to take part in an illegal assembly, which could cause chaos and threaten public order.Yesterday, Perkasa, a Malay right wing group also called for Ambiga’s datukship to be stripped.The Constitution of India is acknowledged by social commentators as an evolutionary, all-encompassing and exhaustive elemental building block of our democratic State-in-being. It is the backbone of India’s policy, administration, civic structure, social governance and progressive drive. It is the Union’s Bible; perhaps the only sacrosanct documental reference for the architects of India. The Constitution of India abolishes untouchabilityA week ago, a 17-year-old boy, K Vinith visited a temple to get sacred ash for his sister, who was expecting her class X exam result. His sister passed the exam without the ash, with a competitive grade. Vinith, however, was beaten up by the priest of the temple- for daring to do the unthinkable – entering the ‘holy’ precincts, even as he is an ‘outcast’. This incident happened in south India. But, when it comes to casteism, the warring parochial pockets of India, suddenly, become a united country. Caste discrimination is an injustice that cannot redeem itself unless we are ready to amend the basis of our religious ideology.We all know. We don’t care. Not unless we need to agitate against reservation or snarl at rupee-garland toting Behenjis in power- carved in stone and utter opulence, and so far removed from those they are supposed to represent. They are not people – they are the vote bank. Those in power are not representatives. They are aberrations.The representative is the boy who cannot choose his God, or his place of worship, or his occupation, or his path. If the fundamental rights enshrined in the constitution are alien to him – it is because he has been alienated. Right to equality, to freedom, right against exploitation…are useless, when what he is fighting for is the right to be…The Constitution of India was drafted upon independence by India’s first Law Minister- an educated, modern visionary. He was a Dalit. His treatise on the subject doesn’t need amendment.  He included equality for all. Vinith and I are equals.Vinith isn’t untouchable, his God is. The temple that closes its doors to the devout is. The priest with perverted ritualistic pedigree is. The religion that thrives on highbrow clique is. The society that shuns a social cause for a political agenda is. The sacred ash that reduces the divine to dust is. Ganga is, Kashi is, Puri is.  We are.
