Another one bites the dust. How about the other one?

Ir Ariffahmi Abdul Rahman, CEO PMBK and Son-in-Law to MB Kelantan and PAS Murshidul Am Dato Nik Aziz Nik Mat

MB Kelantan Dato’ Nik Aziz Nik Mat announced the resignation of PMBK CEO Ir Ariffahmi Abdul Rahman.  The resignation came in a heated controversy after the MACC started to ‘pay visits’ to PMBK after the ‘irregularities’ were first highlighted by us here at BigDogDotCom.

Kelantan Menteri Besar’s son-in-law to resign as PMBK CEO

 2009-11-23 17:47

KOTA BAHARU, Nov 23 (Bernama) — Kelantan Menteri Besar Incorporated chief executive officer Abdul Ariffahmi Abdul Rahman has been ordered to relinquish the post today.

Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said the decision to call for his son-in-law’s resignation was made on the advice of the PAS central leaders.

The PAS leaders, who included party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, deputy spiritual leader Datuk Dr Haron Din, vice-president Sallahuddin Ayub and treasurer Dr Hatta Ramli had a meeting, which lasted for about an hour with Nik Abdul Aziz, at the Kelantan Menteri Besar’s official residence, JKR 10, here earlier today.

“All of them advised me to safeguard the good name of Islam and PAS. Their advice is for my son-in-law to relinquish the post.

“When I appointed him before, the (state) legal officer did not say anything. So I appoint him,” Nik Abdul Aziz, who is also PAS spiritual leader, told a news conference after the meeting.

The issue involving Abdul Ariffahmi surfaced after officers from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) raided the PBMK office to investigate allegations of cronyism and power abuse over his appointment by the Menteri Besar.

Meanwhile, Ariffahmi, who was also present at the news conference, said he accepted the decision and would tender his resignation.


The resignation should not impair the investigations, already started by MACC. If there is any ‘irregularities’ of PMBK’s operations, then it should be uncovered thoroughly and the book thrown at the perpetrators. It is only Islamic to do so.

The investigations should also include the acceptance Nik Aziz of performing Hajj at RM 65,000 per person. Despite he cancelled last minute, the fact that he accepted and made confirmation should be regarded as a ‘corrupt practice’ as he is the Chairman of PMBK and the generous contributor is a contractor to PMBK.

For the record, Ariffahmi is the son-in-law of Nik Aziz.

Nik Aziz should be thoroughly investigated. As a PAS Spiritual Leader, the moment there is a shred of evidence that in the capacity  of MB Kelantana and PMBK Chairman there are corrupt practices, then he must resign. It is only Islamic to do so. After all, he is living up to his “Membangun bersama PAS” slogan. It would be anti-development for PAS to continue allowing leaders who are ‘unclean’ sitting in position of power. Otherwise, they would be regarded as ‘hypocrites’ and the world shall look down on Muslims as PAS carry the aura of a “Islamic party”.

“Butcher of Malaya” return: DAP chauvinism true colours shown

In the midst of public outcry of vehemently denying the approval for the return of Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng to his hometown Sitiawan and be buried there, DAP’s Chinese chauvinism true colours are shown. As they are known to be anti-Malay authority and establishment, the Chinese chauvinist party is making a  call for Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng’s nonchallant and  insincere apology be accepted and him being allowed to return back to the country he once waged a war and committed atrocities.

The Star has the story:

Disagreement on Chin Peng’s apology

PETALING JAYA: The Government should accept Chin Peng’s apology and allow him to return to Malaysia, said national DAP chairman Karpal Singh.

However, former International Movement for a Just World (JUST) president Dr Chandra Muzaffar disagreed, and brushed off the apology as insencere.

PAS vice-president Salahuddin Ayub, meanwhile, suggested a referendum to let the public decide if the apology was acceptable.

“The 20th anniversary of the peace accord between the Malaysian government and the Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) on Dec 2, 1989, and now, an official apology by Chin Peng, should prompt the Government to allow him to return to Malaysia,” Karpal said in a statement yesterday.

Karpal was responding to Chin Peng’s apology for the deaths of innocents published in The Star yesterday.

He claimed the former secretary-general of the CPM had always been a citizen of Malaysia although there were suggestions that Chin Peng did not apply for citizenship after the country achieved independence.

Karpal also said Chin Peng was already 85 years old and had expressed his desire to return to Malaysia. Chin Peng has made arrangements for him to be buried near his father’s grave in his hometown of Sitiawan.

“This should strike a chord in the hearts of those in power.”

He said Chin Peng’s plan to take his case to the International Court of Justice after having lost out in Malaysian courts would give Malaysia unnecessary negative publicity and should be avoided at all cost.

Dr Chandra considered Chin Peng’s apology insincere because of his stand in defending the killing of innocents by his group.

“If we examine his statement, he does not admit he did something wrong.

“He said there would be civilian casualties in war, and said that communists, too, were killed by security forces.

“This shows that his apology is insincere,” he told mStar Online.

“Saying that civilians get killed in war shows he is trying to legitimise what has happened,” added Dr Chandra.

“We also have to consider the feelings of the relatives of those in the security force,” he added.

Salahuddin said a referendum would decide the issue.


For DAP to make such call clearly demosntrated that they have very little regard for the authorities and security personnel, who have risk and lost their lives, if not permanently maimed to make Malaya/Malaysia a peace and stable place to live defending the rakyat and tanahair from the “Butchers of Malaya” atrocities and terrorism throughout 54 years of insurgency. Of course, particularly the ‘Heroes of the Hadyaii Accord’ who worked very hard so that peace be achieved. The fact  that majority of the security and essential services personnel are Malays, it also illustrated their anti-Malay true self.

Otherwise, we at BigDogDotCom once challenged DAP who calls themselves “multiracial party” and advocated “Malaysian, Malaysia” to do their bit for the defense of the realm in getting an influx of Non Malay applicants into the Police, Army and other essential services each time there is a recruitment drive.

On the excuse of Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng’s justification to come back and spend the remaining of his natural live in Malaysia so that he could be burried next to his father, should not arise. He is a Moist-Leninist commnunist and denounced religion, traditions and heritage values. As such, the issue of going back to his roots should never arise. Afterall, he left home to fight even his own fellow Chinese ethnic and fled to China for sanctuary. Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng no longer belong here, in this tanahair.

Another fact remain, his armed rebellion was all about grabbing power, even at the cost of butchering innocent lives. If the intention of chasing away the British colonialists was his reason to wage an armed rebellion, then he should have considered democratically elected Malayan Chief Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra’s offer for total amnesty and coming back into the societies fold by laying downs arms at the Baling Talks on 28 December 1955, despite atrocities already committed. He vehemently refused. Then the much awaited Merdeka came on 31 August 1957. Now that Federation of Malaya is a sovereign country with a Constitution, a parliament consist of democratically elected rakyat based on the constitutional monarchy and most importantly Britain was no longer in control of Malaya and Malayans, he still continued to wage the armed rebellion for another 32 long years.

A quarter of million dollars bounty for Chin "Butcher of Malaya" Peng, from a 1950s Straits Time headline

In 1951, Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng was Malaya’s PUBLIC ENEMY NO. 1. There was a bounty of quarter of million dollars for his capture, which was a princely sum then.

Never the less, let us remind Malaysians of the sufferings of almost 18,000 families who lost love ones in the 12 years Emergency (1948-60), where 60% of them are non combatant civilians, which include innocent women, children and old folks.

This was published in Starmag, The Star on 28 September 2003:

My father’s murderer

ON the night of Dec 19, 1948, my father, the headmaster of the Chinese school in Simpang Dua, Sitiawan, Perak, was resting with his pregnant wife, also a Chinese school teacher, and his seven children at home after dinner. Some people came and called my father, so he wore his shirt and stepped out of the house into the dark. According to my mother, a conversation took place followed by the sound of two gunshots.

The shock was too great for a pregnant woman to bear. Four days later, I was born, prematurely and fatherless.

I used to go for Cheng Beng (All Souls Day) to take flowers to my father’s grave every year. Next to his grave is that of my classmate’s father. He was the headman of Simpang Dua at that time and was also gunned down by Chin Peng’s men on the same fateful night.

When I was studying in ACS, Sitiawan, I used to look at Chin Peng’s son, who was my senior in the same school. He could walk out of the class when Mr Moses Tay taught Malayan history about Chin Peng, but I could only sit there and wish that my father was alive. Perhaps if he had not been a headmaster but just an ordinary teacher, he would not have been murdered and my mother wouldn’t have had to suffer so much, bringing up eight young children single-handedly.

In my birth certificate, in the column for “Father”, is written: “Ditembak mati” (shot dead). It should be “Ditembak mati oleh Chin Peng, the villain”!

Impossible to Forgive & Forget,

Klang, Selangor


The same lady also said this, as reported by The Sun 28 Oct 2003:

Eyes glistening with tears and her voice stifled by emotion, Loi apologised as she tried to speak: “Chin Peng did not just kill headmaster Loi Hieng Poh but deprived me of a father-daughter bonding.”

At all cost, Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng should not be allowed to step foot and breathe the air of the independent and peaceful Malaysia (Malaya) he once terrorized and tried to destroy. If the DAP is insistent that the “Butcher of Malaya” be allowed back in, then they must also insist that the man be made to stand trial as a war ciminal and crimes against HM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong, Federal Constitution and rakyat.

If the argument of not making Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng to stand trial for war crimes is about of his 85 year old age and the Hadyaii Accord was signed 20 years ago, then consider that there is a 90 year old Nazi war criminal now being prosecuted 64 years after the Nuremberg trial ended. He is the “Butcher of Malaya” and tens of thousand families deserve to see justice prevail.
