IDEAS TO SHAME UMNO RAPIST PAPAMUGOMO EXPOSES SEX ROMP INVOLVING GODMAN PORN STAR’ ZULKIFLI NOORDIN,

TAN SRI ABDUL RAHIM TAMBY CHIK STRESSED THAT HE HAD RAPED A 15-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLGIRL “NATIONAL RESPONSIBILITY” IN THE SEX ACT.

BACK IN 1994, THE THEN CHIEF MINISTER OF MALACCA, ABDUL RAHIM THAMBY CHIK, WAS REPORTED TO HAVE RAPED A 15-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLGIRL (UNDER MALAYSIAN LAW, SEX WITH A MINOR CONSTITUTES STATUTORY RAPE). LIM GUAN ENG, CURRENTLY THE CHIEF MINISTER OF PENANG AND THE THEN MP FOR KOTA MELAKA, SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE RAPE OF A MINOR AFTER THE GIRL’S GRANDMOTHER-CUM-GUARDIAN, WHO WAS ALSO LIM’S CONSTITUENT, TURNED TO HIM FOR HELP.

Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohtar Abdullah, in responding to criticism against his person and his office, has once again displayed his arrogance and bad faith. Adopting the tone and manner of his boss, Dato Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad, he tries to avoid answering his critics – the latest among whom was Mohamed Ezam Mohamed Noor – by threatening to use the Sedition Act against them. He hopes that this will put a stop to accusations that his office is negligent and impotent.
I repeat my reproach of Mohtar and his office over the practice of both selective and malicious prosecution and for colluding with political conspirators. Mohtar stands out as the most repulsive attorney-general in Malaysian history, one who would pawn principles and the dignity of his office for mere self interest. Indeed, he has reduced the attorney-general’s office to the level of a department subservient to the executive branch of government.
And they thought they’d get away with it easily! The debate on chemical castration as one of the viable alternatives to imprisonment of serial rapists as a form of medication to deter repeated sexual crimes by men is catching up.
Taking a leaf out of the debate of how ‘a needle can be mightier than the sword’, we find out other plausible formulae that can pose as eligible
 methods in deterring the ‘libido’ in men! 

Demystifying chemical castration
Chemical castration is like a misnomer. This form of medication involves a drug that reduces the testosterone count in men resulting in a drop in sex-drive. However, this does not have a permanent effect on the sexual mechanism. Once discontinued, virility is regained.

While advocating chemical castration as a stringent substitute to judicial punishment, actressDivya Dutta said in an interview, “this will instill a sense of fear in rapists who have been blatant and unabashed about their criminal act. It is important to deter the ‘I-can-get-away-with it’ attitude.”

Chemical castration has been implemented with positive results in places like GeorgiaIowa,LouisianaMontanaOregonTexas and Wisconsin, to discourage sexual-offenders. India is still on the path of emulation. The very thought of going sexually paralyzed will make rapists vulnerable.

Rapist Alert: How about a Radio collar/tag?
For all those who feel that the above proposition is ethically objectionable and that rationality and humanity should predominate in decision-making, then, this idea might seem plausible.

Remember Lindsay Lohan taking refuge in larger jeans and high boots after being ordered by the judge to wear an alcohol-monitoring device on her ankle? To escape the prying eyes, Lindsay had to come up with ways to hide her bracelet.

Similarly, imagine the plight of a rapist walking around with a radio anklet on, and people casting dirty looks at almost identifying him as an outcaste.

Arpita, a school student thinks the idea is worth giving a shot. Says she, “radio collars will psychologically hit the rapist, because it is not always the physical mutilation that is worrisome, emotional scars are much deeper. This initiative will work as a realization button for the rapist.”

Radio tracking will not only help in estimating the population of rapists but can discourage rapists from repeating the crime and avoid public resentment.

A permanent tattoo on the forehead
Tattoos attract attention. So why not engrave them on the foreheads of the rapists, following the old school yet popular technique of ’Mera Baap Chor hai’ in Bollywood films.

A tattoo as a visible marker of humiliation can be a feasible idea to defame a rapist in public eye. Rosy Xess, a mass communication student believes that “tattoos can be a social contributor this way and not remain just a ‘fashion statement’.”

Parade them naked and get them whipped
Rapists will dread this day. Their imprisonment will be touched with a ‘whip.’ The idea is to parade them naked and have them whipped by the public.

This way, the otherwise monotonous imprisonment curriculum of the rapists will also be taken care of.

Ideas can be varied. They may stem from different perspectives but the motive behind every idea is common, i.e. shame the rapist.
So what according to you would be a perfect idea to deter a rapist?

HOWEVER, FAR FROM DESERVING JUSTICE, BOTH LIM AND THE SCHOOLGIRL RECEIVED THEIR “DUES”. LIM WAS JAILED FOR THREE YEARS FOR SPEAKING UP AGAINST THE RAPE WHILE THE GIRL WAS GIVEN THREE YEARS “PROTECTIVE CUSTODY”. AS FOR RAHIM, BECAUSE OF THE RAPE AND PENDING CORRUPTION CHARGES, HE WAS FORCED TO RESIGN, AFTER A 12-YEAR STINT AS MALACCA’S CHIEF MINISTER.
BUT THE JUDICIARY SAW RAHIM ESCAPE PUNISHMENT FOR A CRIME COMMITTED; THIS CAME ABOUT AFTER THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR WITHDREW THE CHARGE CITING LACK OF EVIDENCE. THE CORRUPTION CHARGES AGAINST RAHIM WERE ALSO DROPPED
Dear Guan Eng,
As you languish in prison, I have had plenty of time to reflect on you and your idealism.
Rightly or wrongly, the Democratic Action Party has long tried to have a ‘MALAYSIAN’ character when the vast majority in the country still perceive it to be essentially a political party for the ethnic Chinese.
I realise that recently people like you have tried hard to attract Malaysians, especially Malays, to make the DAP truly Malaysian, but not too successfully, in my view.
Then came an explosive event- the Rahim Thamby Chik case– which made a lot of Malays sit up and change their perceptions of the DAP.
That case rocked MALAY society to its very foundation.
Your conduct and role in pursuit of truth in that scandal earned my deepest admiration. The series of events following that scandal, culminating in the judicial proceedings against you, have turned out to be a classic example of how a verdict in a ‘ court of law’ has become subordinate to the ‘ court of public opinion’.
Ask any MALAY mother anywhere. Few would agree that the famous grandmother in that scandal should have been abandoned by UMNO, and the under-aged girl should have been so blatantly violated and her family silenced.
By your words and deeds, you challenged the government, police, media, and the judiciary, and exposed yourself to certain incarceration and vindictive punishment by Dr. Mahathir and the political elite.
I have always believed that God works in mysterious ways.Inexplicably, He chose you to put the DAP into sharp focus. He chose you to force Malaysians to look at themselves and reflect on the abuse of basic values in our society.
To that extent, God in His wisdom made the DAP no longer just a Chinese political party, but, overnight, into a truly Malaysian one which fights for the deprived.
I am a MALAY with a family of my own.
I shall remember you as a CHINESE father who fought for the rights of a MALAY grand-mother and her sexually abused grand-daughter.
I know that when you decided to take on the case, you knew the price for your action would be heavy for you and your family, personally and politically.
Today, you are still paying the price.
You languish alone in prison. Ironically, as in Nelson Mandela’s case, the longer they lock you up, the greater will be your stature, the more powerful the focus on the issues you fought for.
I also know that, all through this, you can look into the eyes of your wife, children and parents,and say, with deserved pride and honour, that ”Guan Eng has not prostituted his dignity, decency and self-respect in the face of oppression and tyranny”.
You have truly given new meaning to the maxim, ‘Politics With Honour’.
More importantly, you have made me look in the mirror and ask, ‘Who Am I?
What have I done to speak out against the evil forces which confronted two Malay kampong women? Why have I remained silent? Have I lost my decency and self-respect?’
In all honesty, I cannot say I have the guts to look into the eyes of my family members and say I have done them proud. I have kept silent.
I owe it to you, Guan Eng, for opening my eyes and stirring my conscience.
Our inaction and apathy have allowed oppression, tyranny and injustice to continue. We have to search our hearts and souls to find ways to make up for our negligence and ineptitude.
To you, Guan Eng, I offer prayers from my family.
May the blessings of the Almighty continue to give you strength, courage and tenacity to do what is right and just for all Malaysians.
Yours Sincerely,
Narmi Saila
Petaling Jaya, Selangor
