Jangan dinafikan, kita perlu negara baru dengan politik baru

Siapa yang boleh memberikan jangkaan, apa yang akan berlaku selepas ini dalam siasah dan politik negara? Pemimpin bercakap di dalam forum, akhbar dan media perdana menulis dan membincanghkan masalah negara dan rakyat dan media alternatif bercakap dan memberikan ulasan dengan panjang lebar dan berterusan sehingga sekarang ini. Selepas itu pilihanraya diadakan, keadaan masih dalam kebimbangan tentang masa depan negara dan rakyat.
Yang sudah berumur bertambah tua, dan anak-anak yang ramai sudah meningkat dewasa dengan kedatangan cucu-cucu yang ramai. Negara masih tidak menentu. Semakin hari semakin banyak kerisauan mendatang mengingatkan cucu-cucu yang lahir dan bilangan keluarga bertambah-tambah. Jika kita sudah tiada, siapakah yang boleh memberikan jaminan kepada generasi yang kita tinggalkan itu hidup dalam suasana negara yang aman damai?
Kata perbilangan keruh di hulu, keruh di hilir. Maknanya kalau kita masih bercakaran dan bergaduh dalam semua hal maka generasi kita akan mewarisi keadaan dan susana yang tidak tenteram dan mengelirukan. Jika kita tidak mahu air keruh di hilir maka air yang di hulu wajib kita jernihkan. Jika kita tidak mahu kehidupan generasi kita berada dalam suasana tidak tenteram maka kita wajar membina kembali susana yang tenteram itu sekarang ini.
Kita bukan tidak pernah tenteram sebelum ini, malahan itulah yang menjadi sebab kenapa kita bersusah payah ‘berperang’ sekarang ini. Kita ‘berperang’ sekarang ini semata-mata untuk kembali merasakan bagaimana nikmatnya hidup dalam negara yang siasah dan politiknya aman seperti yang kita rasai dahulu.
Masing-masing berjuang untuk mempengaruhi empunya negara ini, iaitu rakyat yang berbilang kaum, untuk menegakkan hujjah masing-masing, Semuanya mengaku untuk kebaikan negara semata-mata jika mereka di beri mandat untuk menguasai kerajaan.
Tentulah isu-isu yang di gunakan oleh pihak-pihak ini adalah di sebabkan isu kelemahan pihak yang memegang kuasa dan semuanya itu di jadikan modal oleh pihak yang ingin mengambil alih kuasa itu. Hasilnya telah pun kita ketahui dan yang berkuasa masih kekal dengan kuasanya walaupun dalam angka dan peratusan yang mengecil. Yang ingin mengambil alih kuasa itu kekal sebagai pembangkang kerana rakyat juga mempunyai sebab untuk meletakan mereka kekal sebagai pembangkang.
Dalam isu ini rakyat mempunyai sebab untuk mengalihkan mandat kepada pihak lain dari BN, tetapi dalam masa yang sama mereka juga mempunyai alasan untuk memberikan yang menyandang untuk kekal berkuasa. Rakyat sedar yang berkuasa itu amat jelek tetapi yang ingin mengambil kuasa juga tidak boleh memberikan jaminan yang mereka tidak jelak juga.
Rakyat tidak mahu berada dalam situasi mengalihkan dari pihak yang jelek tetapi akhirnya yang mengambil alih itu juga tidak selurus dan sebaik mana yang mereka ucapkan dan perjuangan. Mereka tidak mahu keluar dari mulut naga tetapi masuk pula ke mulut buaya. Apa pun kesudahannya, rakyat jugalah yang menentukan keadaan kerana negara ini rakyat yang punya, bukannya kepunyaan pemimpin-pemimpin parti politik yang berbilang kaum itu.
Rakyat mahukan ‘certainty’ yang sesiapa yang memerintah tidak membohongi mereka lagi. Mereka mahukan penunaian janji-janji yag di berikan kepada mereka. BN telah menjanjikan perubahan untuk kebaikan tetapi kebaikan itu belum juga nampak berlaku. Tindakan dan perlakuan rasuah masih berluas luasa. Penyalahgunaan kuasa dan pengaruh oleh pemimpin-pemimpin dan isteri-isteri  mereka masih terlihat dengan jelas.
Menggunakan sentimen perkauman masih begitu jelas dan di gunakan sebagai cara untuk mengekalkan kuasa. Muhyiddin di kritik hebat kerana isu ‘Malay first, Malaysian second’ oleh pihak yang memperjuangkan ‘multiracialism’,. Tetapi bagaimana isu ini boleh di jadikan isu oleh pihak pembangkang kerana ada parti pembangkang yang memperjuangkan ‘multiracism’ tetapi mereka juga mempunyai sikap ‘Chinese first Indian 2nd and Malays 3rd’ dalam party mereka. Tidak ada langsung ‘attribute’ sebagai parti berbilang kaum di dalamnya.
Bagi saya perjuangan ‘multiracialism’ itu hanyalah retorik yang mengelirukan. Ia tidak akan menjadi kenyataan dan tidak akan wujud lagi. Kedua-dua belah pihak yang berbeza dalam banyak hal, tetapi mereka mempunyai satu persamaan, iaitu tegar dengan jiwa rasis, jika tidak dalam kata-kata mereka di lihat rasis dalam tindakan mereka.
Dalam hal ini kita tidak lagi mempunyai seorang pemimpin yang boleh memulakan cara baru dalam menyusun politik yang baru di kalangan mereka yang sedang berada dalam barisan kepimpinan peringkat tinggi baik dari BN atau dari Pakatan Rakyat.
Itu sebabnya memilih melalui parti sudah hampir tidak relevan lagi untuk memulakan politik baru, tetapi buat permulaannya kita perlu memilih manusia dan pemimpin yang mempunyai jiwa dan hati untuk membentuk suasana baru dengan politik yang baru. Jika kita tidak membentuk dan memulakan politik dan negara baru, kita berada dalam keadaan berisiko dalam mana kita akan terus di tadbir oleh mereka yang terlalu kufur dengan nikmat dan di gantikan oleh mereka yang baru menikmati kuasa yang lebih lahap lagi.
Jika dahulu ada Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Tan Cheng Lock, dan VT Sambanthan untuk duduk bersama menyususn sebuah negara, tidak ada sebab kita tidak boleh mencari seorang pemimpin yang boleh melakukan tugasan yang sama. Mulakan rundingan berama ketua-ketua suku kaum termasuk dari Sabah dan Sarawak dan selesaikan masalah yang timbul dari isu Perjanjian Persekutuan Malaysia yang kini menjadi isu panas terutama lagi dikalangan rakyat dari Malaysia Timur itu.

Kita wajar berani dan selesaikan semua isu yang berbangkit ‘once and for all’. Masalah-masalah yang berbangkit ini hanya boleh di selesaikan oleh seorang pemimpin yang mempunyai ‘passion’ terhadap keamanan dan mengutamakan negara. Ia tidak boleh di selesaikan oeh pemimpin yang mendahului niat memenuhi nafsu dan kehendak peribadi seperti yang kita sedang saksikan menjadi pakaian pemimpin-pemimpin yang sedang mengetuai dan memimpin parti-parti politik negara ini.

This was the same reaction we heard of, when the Malaysian government went overboard and rushed to "save" a young Malaysian girl who was a genius but went "astray" into high class prostitution in England ! We failed when she told our government mind our own business and to get lost. 


And now, this 69 year old slave, Siti Aishahwho was influenced by the Maoist political ideology and was allegedly held as a slave in London for 30 years. The Malaysian government is practically grovelling at her feet to bring her back home ( Malaysia or so they think) hoping she would "repent" her ways and return to Islam and Malaysia. ( here )

But this ex-slave would rather slap the government's generosity of an instant citizenship and to a heroine's welcome if she returned to the Islamic path ! ( here ) What a load of crap are we wasting tax-payers money on this woman for ? She is an adult and has been indoctrinated with an ideology of her choice, and its her right to think the way she wants. So why the heck does the government want to run half way round the world just to save one former Malaysian for ? Because she is Muslim ? Damn, she's a British communist now ! Opps, almost forgot....and fellow Malaysians are threatened by the top cop from writing about the double standards of who gets to be buried where and who gets to be citizens here. Even the foreign ministry is on the band wagon to determine her legal status ! This is also skimming along racial lines, no ? ( here )

Can't these morons in the government understand her rights to choice of beliefs ? Hey dumbos, she's not even a Malaysian citizen any more. She's renounced her citizenship 45 years ago. Why  the necessity to save a commie, huh ? Maybe to earn some brownie points from the kampung folks that this is a caring government ? And she practically told her "saviours" to fuck off from her face ! 

To start with, the government should "rehabilitate" and save the corrupt politicians in our parliament, past and present first without fear or favour. 

These type of stories reflects badly on the types of people we Malaysians truly are in this world....the stupid type. Time the Malaysian government learnt to respect individual's rights to thoughts and beliefs rather then make utter fools of ourselves. 

As usual I'm so shy lah !

UMNO man caught with under-age girl

Ustaz Kazim Elias kesal dicemuh orang ramai [TONTON VIDEO]

Post Pic



SHAH ALAM: Pendakwah dan penceramah bebas, Ustaz Mohd Kazim Elias melahirkan rasa kesal terhadap tindakan orang ramai mencemuhnya dilaman sosial Facebook, setelah beliau dilantik menjadi seorang dari ahli Majlis Tertinggi Umno, secara lantikan.
Kazim yang masih terkejut dengan pengumuman itu bagaimanapun berkata beliau menerima pelantikan itu bagi meneruskan perjuangan dakwahnya.
 
"Saya pun terkejut saya dilantik, belum apa-apa dah kena maki.. Alhamdulillah, salah ke kalau orang lain minta nasihat? Saya ni sentiasa berlapang dada, janganlah tuduh tanpa melihat secara halus,
 
"Apa tuan-tuan ingat saya kemaruk wang, kuasa pangkat? Apa salahnya doakan yg terbaik, bila tidak ada orang agama dikata teruk, bila orang agama dijemput pun dikata teruk.
 
"Saya tak faham. Kalau tak tahu apa-apa alangkah baik kalau diam..," katanya yang dipetik daripada status di akaun miliknya di laman sosial Facebook. 
 
Antara tuduhan yang dilemparkan terhadapnya adalah 'tanda-tanda akhir zaman, orang berilmu yang mengetahui kemungkaran sanggup mengiyakan kemungkaran demi kedudukan dan wang ringgit' selain dituduh sebagai ustaz Umno.
 
Kazim juga dicemuh sebagai kaki temberang apabila sebelum ini beliau berkali-kali menafikan bahawa dirinya adalah ahlu Umno.
 
Kazim juga disaran pelayar internet agar menolak pelantikan itu dan hanya menumpukan usaha kepada menjadi pendakwah yang disegani dan bebas daripada apa-apa ikatan.
 
Semalam, Setiausaha Agung Umno, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor mengumumkan pelantikan tambahan sembilan lagi Ahli Majlis Tertinggi (MT).
 
Antaranya adalah, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz (Menteri Pelancongan dan Kebudayaan), Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin (Timbalan Menteri Luar), Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani (Ahli Parlimen Titiwangsa), Datuk Irmohizam Ibrahim (Ahli Parlimen Kuala Selangor), Datuk Mohd Sharkar Shamsudin (Adun) Lanchang, Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin, Ketua Umno Bahagian Lembah Pantai, Tan Sri Prof Dr Ibrahim Shah Abu Shah (Bekas Naib Canselor UiTM), Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki (Yang Dipertua YADIM) serta Ustaz Mohammad Kazim Elias (pendakwah).
 
Tengku Adnan berkata, pengumuman pelantikan berkenaan dibuat bagi melengkapkan 13 ahli tambahan MT parti itu sebagaimana yang terkandung dalam fasal 9.2.8 Perlembagaan Umno. 
 
Terdahulu, Naib Ketua Wanita, Datuk Azizah Mohd Dun, Penolong Setiausaha Wanita, Datuk Rosni Sohar, Naib Ketua Pemuda, Khairul Azwan Harun dan Naib Ketua Puteri, Zahida Zarik Khan dilantik pada mesyuarat pertama MT, 22 November lalu.
 
Mengulas lanjut Kazim berkata beliau akan mengadakan satu sidang media di PPR Setapak pada jam 9 malam ini bagi menjelaskan kepada orang ramai berhubung perkara ini.
 
"Saya akan adakan sidang akhbar khas di PPR Setapak, dengar penjelasan saya. Dalam hal ini sepatutnya bagi pandangan atau nasihat, bukan maki hamun, fitnah dan cacian.
 
"Bab lantikan MT UMNO ni baru sangat saya dijemput, diminta bantu apa yang patut untuk Islam. Itu pun jadi masalah, jadi isu? Saya ada prinsip saya. Tak pernah dengar ceramah saya, tapi nak komen lebih-lebih,, Esok saya akan dapatkan apa bentuk lantikan yang diberi pada saya dan saya jugak kena jaga banyak perkara dari keluarga, sekolah, kuliah-kuliah saya, anak murid saya, pengikut kuliah saya dan lain lain.
 
"Bagi anda yang betul ikhlas dalam memperjuangkan Islam boleh dengar apa saya cakap selepas saya berbincang seperti yang saya sebutkan tadi," tegasnya.

'I knew my mother's blood runs through her': Rebuffed but Siti Aishah's sister has NO REGRETS

'I knew my mother's blood runs through her': Rebuffed but Siti Aishah's sister has NO REGRETS
LONDON - SITI Aishah Abdul Wahab promised her sister that she would go back in nine months' time, donned the tudung that she gave her and said goodbye.
That is the memory that 73-year-old retired teacher Kamar Mahtum will bring back with her after the emotional reunion on Thursday night with her long lost sister, widely reported as being enslaved by a Maoist cult south of the city for the past 30 years.
The 40-minute meeting, which was made possible with the help of the British police and the Malaysian High Commission here, was held at a secret place. Met by the Malaysian media at Heathrow airport before her departure back home yesterday, Kamar Mahtum related how she sobbed loudly upon seeing her sister before telling off Siti Aishah for putting the family on an emotional roller-coaster over the past 45 years.
"I told her, 'How could you do this to us? We love you.' When mother was ill, she asked, 'Where is Siti Aishah?' You said you were coming home. How do you feel now?" Kamar Mahtum said as she described the meeting.
But she was "incredibly composed"
According to her, Siti Aishah was incredibly composed. And when she was asked to make efforts to be near Allah, Siti Aishah said she had lots of friends who loved and cared for her.
When Kamar Mahtum asked her to promise to read the Quran, Siti Aishah held her hands and promised to do so. She told her that the tudung and telekung were from Mecca and Siti Aishah wore the tudung immediately and had it on until they bade goodbye.
"Before coming here, I was told I had a 25 per cent chance of seeing her. Now, I am very happy. Happy that the Malaysian High Commission helped me, and happy with the assurance from High Commissioner Datuk Seri Zakaria Sulong that she was not hunted by the Malaysian police.
"She looked well. When I hugged her, I knew she is still my sister, I knew my mother's blood runs through her," she said, breaking down a few times during the interview as she recalled that brief but emotional meeting.
Pestered her for a short note
Kamar Mahtum said after some persuasion, she managed to get Siti Aishah to write a short note in an exercise book that she had brought with her.
In it, Siti Aishah wrote: "Dear everybody at home, I am very happy to have met Kak Mar today, I am well & hope to see you all sometime in the near future! Love from me, Aisha".
She said she was hugely relieved that she had met up with her long lost sister. She said Siti Aishah was far from being a slave as reported by the media.
"Why does the media use the word hamba (slave)? I feel slighted by this."
Kamar Mahtum, who was accompanied by activist Hishamuddin Rais, was sent off at the airport by Malaysian High Commission officials. - NST/Agencies

SNUB FOR UMNO: Extreme Muslim cleric Kazim holds back, wants to MEET Najib first

SNUB FOR UMNO: Extreme Muslim cleric Kazim holds back, wants to MEET Najib first
KUALA LUMPUR — Well-known missionary Ustaz Mohammad Kazim Elias today said that he had not made a final decision on whether to accept his appointment as an Umno Supreme Council (MT) member.
He said before he could make the decision, he needed to convene a meeting with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to find out what roles he would play in Umno, besides giving fair consideration to his duties as a missionary.
“I need an assurance that I will not be prevented from discharging my duties as a missionary if I join Umno.
“I want to know whether my hands will be tied or whether I will get a gag order prohibiting me from voicing out my opinions. If I can get that assurance, then I’m ready to cooperate,” he told reporters before delivering a ceramah at Seri Semarak People’s Housing Project (PPR) flats here tonight.
He said he also hoped the meeting with Najib, who is Umno president, could be convened soon.
Prior to this, Mohamad Kazim said he received a telephone call from Najib informing him of his proposed position in Umno leadership line-up and to help strengthen the Islamic faith among members of the party and Muslims in the country as a whole.
He said Najib’s openness in inviting him to join Umno leadership line-up proved that the prime minister was serious in making transformation and expanding the role of a missionary in the party.
“I view this as an approach to unite Muslims. I hope all quarters will also look at this as a good thing. Look at it as an effort to put religion first,” he said.
Mohamad Kazim, who was once a PAS member, also expressed his disappointment over the fact that PAS had never asked him to join them in discharging the missionary duties.
“So, when the prime minister invites me to join Umno, it must be embarrassing for PAS because it has never been this open with me,” he added. — Bernama

'EVEN WITHOUT US, SHE CAN SURVIVE': A precious lesson from Siti Aishah to insular Malays back home

'EVEN WITHOUT US, SHE CAN SURVIVE': A precious lesson from Siti Aishah to insular Malays back home
KUALA LUMPUR - Siti Aishah Abdul Wahab, the 69-year old Malaysian `slave` rescued from the grasps of a south London-based Maoist sect, is happy in London and had a lot of friends, her sister was quoted as saying in The Telegraph.
Kamar Mahtum, 73, described the joy and sadness following her first emotional reunion with her sister in more than 40-years.
Siti Aishah, who was allegedly held against her will for more than 30-years, said she was happy in Britain and had a wide circle of friends who cared for her, fed her and loved her.
In the Nov 29 interview, the Telegraph quoted Kamar Mahtum as saying that Siti Aishah was so swept up in left-wing politics that she became totally isolated from her family and did not even know their mother passed away 19-years ago.
The two sisters were reportedly reunited at a secret location in the north of England after Karmar mahtum flew to London immediately after discovering her sister had been found.
Kamar Mahtum related to the English daily how Siti Aishah was doing well but was a different person compared to the fiercely bright quantity surveying student who left Malaysia full of ambition at the tail end of the 1960s.
How is mum? Mum is gone
The retired teacher said: “At first I did not recognise her. She looked very different of course; 40-years older, the beautiful young girl had gone. But then again I am also an old woman now.”
She said the first thing they did was to hug one another for a long time as the years of separation fell away.
“I cried, first out of relief, but then out of anger and then out of frustration. She asked me, ‘how is mum?’ and I said, ‘mum is gone’.
“She did not show any emotion at that point. She had tears in her eyes, but I think they were out of respect for me. But I had the sob of my life.
“The last time I sobbed like that was when I lost my mother in 1994. We could not contact Aishah to let her know because we did not know where she was.”
I love your smile
During the 40 minute reunion meeting, the pair did not discuss the conditions in which Miss Wahab and the other rescued women had been living, nor their alleged captors, Aravindan Balakrishnan and his wife Chanda Pattni.
She told The Daily Telegraph: “When I asked her about what had gone on she just clammed up. The only thing she wanted me to perceive is that she is happy.
“She told me, ‘I have got friends here, I work here. I do important work here’, but she could not reveal what it was she did.”
“Each time she said something that made me smile she would say, ‘oh I love your smile. Don’t frown, laugh, smile’.”
Siti Aishah and the other two alleged slaves – believed to be Josephine Herivel, 57, from Northern Ireland and 30-year-old Prem Davies – were released last month after the Freedom Charity received a call from one of the women complaining they had been held against their will for 30-years.
Police from the Met’s human trafficking unit described the case as unique and said as well as investigating allegations of physical assault they were also looking at the “invisible handcuffs” that had been used to keep them in “captivity”.

Police in Kuala Lumpur said on November 27 one of three women allegedly held as slaves in London for 30 years was a Malaysian who went missing in the 1960s, prompting a joyous reaction from the long-lost woman's sister.

Even without us, she can survive
In the interview with the Telegraph, Kamar Mahtum said her instinct had been to reach out and help her little sister, but Siti Aishah insisted she had never been lonely in London and had people who looked out for her.
“Aishah said, ‘I’ve got enough’, ‘my friends feed me’, ‘my friends love me, I love them, they help me out.”
She added: “When she said that I felt that she was trying to tell me … that even without us, she can survive, as she has been for the last 40 years. We’re nothing that important. I felt a lot of disappointment.”
But she said Siti Aishah had promised to return to Malaysia to be reunited with the rest of her family once the investigation into allegations of slavery was complete, a process which could take at least a year.
She explained: “She promised that after the investigation was over she would come home. As the rest of her family I want her to come home very, very badly.
“I want her to know my children. I want my children to know her. Because part of her is me and part of her is in my children and I want them to recognise the similarity and the identity across the generations. I still feel emotional about it.”
Why do you speak in Malay: She could no longer read Malay
Kamar Mahtum admitted that her sister had been in London for so long that she now appeared to be more British than Malaysian.
“She was wearing a thick red cardigan and brown pants, very comfortable. She was commenting on my Malaysian attire, my attire is very delicate, velvety, she said this is not something to wear in this cold weather.
“When I tried to talk in Malay she said, ‘why do you speak in Malay, when I haven’t heard it for 40-years.
“I showed her the letter that I had written, but she said, ‘what is this word?’ she could no longer read Malay.”
Kamar Mahtum said the last time the pair had seen each other had been in 1967 when she won a place at university and moved to London with her fiancé.
Two years later when the older sister married in Malaysia, Siti Aishah failed to return.
She became more involved with radical politics, so the communication dried up and she has never met any of her older sister’s four children or 11 grandchildren.
40 years is nothing in time
Describing the meeting, which was attended by around 10 police officers and representatives from the Malaysian High Commission, Kamar Mahtum said seeing that her sister was safe meant she had achieved what she came to Britain to do.
She said: “It was a very emotional day, very revealing, but then I was contented that I got what I wanted and I can bring home the beautiful memories. I have a feeling that she does want to come home eventually and that we will work hard to persuade her.”
“At least I know that my feelings have never wavered, I love her as my sister as I loved her before. I think she loves me too but she’s not as ready to show it as much as I do.
She added: “The blood bonds us thickly as yet, 40-years doesn’t make much change as far as that is concerned.”
Balakrishnan and his wife Pattni have been bailed until a date in January. - Agencies

Najib to MIC: Show your track record

Extra funding is not an issue but MIC leadership must prove its track record in spending for the Indian community, says PM Najib.
MALACCA: Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak wants the MIC leadership to prove its track record and show the results in helping the Indian community before asking for more funding from the government.
Najib said this today when delivering his opening speech at MIC’s 67th General Assembly in Malacca.
Barisan Nasional secretary-general Tengku Adnan Mansor, Malacca Chief Minister Idris Harun and former MIC president S Samy Vellu were also present.
According to Najib, extra funding was not an issue for the government but the MIC leadership should show how they have benefited and channelled the funds allocated by the government to the community.
He also pointed out that the result of deliverance to the community will be only shown when there was an increase support and ‘nambikei’ (trust) placed on the government.
Najib also called on the MIC leadership to put more work to address the issues faced by the community.
“BN government has done more for the Indian community, compared to the opposition.
“I also have recorded my sincere thanks to the community during my Budget speech recently in Parliament,” said Najib.
Najib also said that he realised the drop of support among Indians when BN lost badly in the 2008 general election and took drastic steps to address the problems in the 2013 general election in wooing the Indian support for BN government.
Nevertheless, he also added that there was still a gap of support among Indians for BN, and urged the MIC leadership to assist the BN in addressing the issues of the Indian community.
During his speech, Najib also criticised the hefty salary hike for Selangor’s elected reps.
He said Pakatan Rakyat was trying to fool the people and enriching themselves at the expense of the people.

MIC wants RM3 billion for Indians

Before the PM’s speech, MIC president G Palanivel addressed the delegates and said MIC wanted the government to allocate RM3 billion for the party to help the Indian community.
This fund would be used to enhance the Indian community in training, education and as business loans for aspiring entrepreneurs.
Palanivel also urged the government to ensure the promised 1,500 matriculation quotas for Indian students are fulfilled.
In addition, the MIC president also wants to see more Indians in local public varsities.
He said that at present, only 1,742 Indian students were enrolled in local universities, and hoped the government would assist to increase the number of Indians students to 4,000.

MKT: Kenapa tak lantik wakil Sabah?

Sepatutnya Najib utamakan pemimpin Sabah kerana Sabah adalah fixed deposit kepada kemenangan BN. Satu orang pun dari Sabah tidak dilantik
PETALING JAYA: Dua hari lepas, sembilan individu yang terdiri daripada pelbagai latar belakang dilantik oleh Presiden UMNO, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak bagi melengkapkan barisan ahli Majlis Tertinggi (MT) yang baharu.
Setiausaha Agung UMNO, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor berkata, perlantikan tersebut dibuat atas kuasa yang dimiliki oleh presiden parti seperti mana yang terkandung dalam Fasal 9.2.8 Perlembagaan UMNO.
Sembilan orang itu ialah Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, Datuk Hamzah Zainudin, Datuk Mohd. Sharkar Shamsudin, Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin,Datuk Irmohizam Ibrahim, Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani, Tan Sri Prof. Dr. Ibrahim Abu Shah, Dr. Asyraf Wajdi Dasuki dan Mohammad Kazim Elias.
Minggu lalu selepas mesyuarat pertama majlis tertinggi, Najib mengumumkan perlantik dua wakil Wanita Umno, Datuk Azizah Mohd Dun dan Datuk Rosni Shahar serta wakil pemuda, Khairul Azwan Harun dan wakil Puteri, Zahida Zarik Khan.
Ramai yang mempertikai kenapa penceramah agama terkenal (Ustaz kazim) dilantik sebagai ahli MKT. Malah Ketua Pemuda PAS Perak, Raja Ahmad Iskandar mendakwa Umno tanpa menyedarinya telah melantik seorang ahli PAS sebagai ahli Majlis Tertinggi (MT) yang baru.
Dalam satu kenyataan semalam, Raja Ahmad berkata Mohammad Kazim Elias – yang pelantikannya sebagai ahli MT diumumkan oleh Umno semalam – merupakan ahli PAS sejak 1998.
“Dewan Pemuda PAS Perak ingin membuat pengesahan bahawa Mohammad Kazim adalah ahli PAS semenjak 17 Julai 1998 dengan nombor keahliannya 0475276 di bawah cawangan Kampung Manjoi PAS di Tambun,” katanya.
Raja Ahmad mempersoalkan adakah Mohammad Kazim telah menjadi ahli Umno sedangkan beliau masih ahli PAS yang sah.
“Tidakkah untuk membuat sebarang pelantikan politik memerlukan seseorang itu menyertai parti tersebut terlebih dahulu?” soal Raja Ahmad.
Kuasa melantik adalah kuasa Presiden Umno. Sudah tentu Ustaz Kazim sudah mengisi borang keahlian Umno sebelum dilantik sebagai ahli Majlis Tertinggi.
Ada yang juga yang mempersoal kenapa Najib tidak lantik Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir yang kalah dalam pertandingan Naib Presiden Umno pada 19 Oktober lalu. Bagi saya, Najib berlaku adil tidak melantik Mukhriz kerana jika beliau lantik Menteri Besar Kedah itu, Menteri Bsar lain kecil hati seperti Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, Datuk Seri Adnan Yaacob, Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin, Datuk Seri Musa Aman, Datuk Seri Dr Zambri Kadir dan Datuk Azlan Man.
Oleh itu semua Menteri Besar turut hadir dan boleh bersuara bila diminta oleh Presiden Umno untuk bersuara dalam mesyuarat majlis tertinggi itu. Hanya Menter Besar Negeri Sembilan, Datuk Seri Mohamad hassan dan Ketua Menteri Melaka, Datuk Idris Harun yang menang dalam pertandingan majlis tertinggi itu.
Yang saya ingin bertanya kenapa Najib melantik semula Menteri Pelancongan,Nazri Aziz yang sudah dua kali tidak bertanding? Kenapa perlu lantik Nazri yang tidak berani bertanding? Malah beliau dicabar oleh NGO untuk bertanding majlis tertinggi ketika isu rumah anaknya r RM7 juta heboh di media. Tetapi Nazri enggan bertanding.
Begitu juga Hamzah Zainuddin yang tidak bertanding majlis tertinggi sedangkan beliau menang pada pemilihan 2009. Sepatutnya ahli majlis tertinggi yang tidak mempertahankan jawatan tidak perlu dilantik semula sebagai ahli majlis tertinggi.
Kenapa perlu lantik dua wakil dari Wilayah Persekutuan, Raja Nongchik dan Johari Abdul Ghani? Perlantikan bekas Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan itu wajar kerana beliau dapat tempat ke 26 pada pemilihan 19 Oktober lalu, tetapi Wilayah tak perlu ada dua MKT dilantik kerana Setiausaha Agung pun dari Wilayah Persekutuan (Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor).
Sepatutnya Najib utamakan pemimpin Sabah kerana Sabah adalah fixed deposit kepada kemenangan BN. Satu orang pun dari Sabah tidak dilantik. Sepatutnya lantiklah Datuk Tawfiq Abu Bakar yang dapat nombor 27.
Ahli parlimen Kuala Selangor, Irmohizam Ibrahim mewakili Selangor sedangkan Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan Selangor, Datuk Seri Noh Omar tidak dilantik majlis tertinggi. Sepatutnya Noh yang berada dalam majlis tertinggi dan bukannya Irmohizam.
Minggu lalu, Najib umumkan dua wakil wanita. Biasanya seorang sahaja wakil wanita Umno dilantik. Kenapa perlu lantik dua orang. Memadailah dengan Azizah Mohd Dun seorang. Banyak yang tidak kena dengan perlantikan majlis tertinggi kali ini.
Namun demikian adalah diharapkan mereka bekerja kuat untuk menghadapi PRU ke 14 nanti.

Trouble brewing in MIC veep race outcome

An SMS allegedly sent by a defeated vice presidential candidate questions the sudden increase of 77 ballot papers.
UPDATED
MALACCA: A vice-presidential candidate has questioned the sudden increase of 77 ballot papers which had caused a dent in his attempt to win one of the three vice-president’s slots in MIC.
Jaspal Singh, an early favourite to win the race, has found himself out of the top three after numerous recounts overnight, and has indicated that he would not accept the outcome.
Official results, after a total of four recounts, showed a comeback for former party leader S Sothinathan, followed by incumbent M Saravanan and surprise winner Johor Baru division chairman S Balakrishnan.
Even before the official results were announced, these three leaders were given place at the main dais for the opening ceremony of the MIC annual general meeting, officiated by Prime Minister and BN chairman Najib Tun Razak.
Sothinathan received 717 votes, while Saravanan came second with 716. Balakrishan received 683 votes to pip out Jaspal Singh who garnered 670 votes.
Former Youth chiefs SA Vigneswaran and T Mohan received 572 and 530 votes respectively. Incumbent vice president and Perak assembly speaker SK Devamany only managed to obtain 332 votes while Bukit Bintang deputy chief James CS Selvaraja finished last with 52 votes.
The voting took place yesterday but the results were not announced last night following requests for recounts from the candidates.
This morning the talk in the MIC AGM is that the four recounts saw an increase of 237 votes in all, prompting some candidates to question the electoral and counting process.
After the first counting, Jaspal had finished in the third spot, enabling him to be one of the three vice-presidents. The initial results showed Sothinathan had 686 votes , Saravanan (678), Jaspal (644) Balakrishan (640), Vigneswaran (555), Mohan (460 )and James Selvaraja (48).
However as a result of the final recount, Jaspal had finished fourth and he is not taking it easy.
This morning MIC delegates have received as SMS, ostensibly from Jaspal, telling them that he (Jaspal) was dissatisfied with the final results as there had been an increase in ballot papers.
The SMS stated that the total ballot papers in the first count was 1,346 but the number increased to 1,423 ballot papers after the fourth recount.
The text message was also forwarded to FMT read:
“My fellow supporters. I am unable to accept the election results. During the first count total voters were 4,032 meaning 1,346 ballot paper. All candidates signed the score sheet. We were all congratulating each other. Then when Bala asked for recount he had extra 27 votes. I asked for total ballot papers to be recounted and the count showed 1,423. Where did 77 more ballot papers came. This ballot papers could be put into box while we were celebrating the first result. How can I accept the recount when there are extra 77 ballot papers. Either call a re-election or standby the first result which was signed by all candidates. It’s indeed sad to see such an act. I thank you for your support. Regards Dato’ Jaspal.”
The official outcome is expected to be announced after Najib’s opening speech.
None of the vice presidential candidates were free to comment.

Siti Aishah ain’t a factor to the Left

PSM secretary general S Arutchelvan feels that the return of Siti Aishah to Malaysia will not assist the growth of the Leftist movement in Malaysia.
KUALA LUMPUR: A socialist leader in Malaysia today said that Siti Aishah Abdul Wahab’s return from London would not boost the Leftist movement such as Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM).
Speaking at the sidelines of Socialism 2013 conference which is held at the Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall, PSM secretary general S Arutchelvan said that there was no need to rely on Siti Aishah.
“She is not a very active member now. We do have enough young members to sustain socialism here.
“Even her group could not sustain their momentum there,” he said.
He said this when asked if the return of Siti Aishah would help spur the growth of the Left movement, communism and socialism in Malaysia.
Siti Aishah, 69, hit the media spotlight a week ago when it was discovered that she was kept as a slave along with two others for 30 years in London.
She was kept as a slave by a Maoist couple identified as Indian-born Aravindan Balakrishnan and his Tanzanian wife Chanda, who were both arrested and released in bail on Nov 21.
The Jelebu-born Siti Aishah was a brilliant student who received her early education in Tunku Kurshiah Girls College in Negeri Sembilan.
She was a Colombo Plan scholar specialising in the field of quantity survey in London in the 60s. While studying, she got herself involved with the Left movement.
She moved to UK in 1968 with her fiancé Omar Munir after a fallout with her family.
The arrest of Balakrishnan and Chanda resulted in Siti Aishah meeting her family member in the presence of London police in the mid of last week.
She however refused to return to Malaysia even though her sister Kamar Mahtum would like her to do so. She also denied that she was enslaved by the couple.
IGP’s cold war mentality
On another related issue, Arutchelvan said that Inspector General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar must stay out of politics.
“He has no understanding of communism and socialism. He has no clue what he is talking about.
Arutchelvan said this in reaction to Khalid’s warning to FMT columnist Mariam Mokhtar who had penned article entitled “One ideology, two reactions” that was published on Friday.
The top cop had said that the article was seditious.
“He is still maintaining his Cold War mentality. It is up to FMT readers to judge her (Mariam),” said Arutchelvan.
“People can judge the columnist through the comments section. Khalid does not need to treat the people as if there are children,” he added.
In the article Mariam questioned the government’s discriminating treatment on the return of the deceased Malayan Communist Party leader Chin Peng’s ashes from Bangkok, Thailand and Siti Aishah.
