Zahrain: Hilang yakin pada Anwar dan Lim Guan Eng hancurkan PR

MP Bayan Baru dan Mantan Pengerusi PKR Pulau Pinang Dato’ Seri Zahrain Hashim pagi ini mengumumkan beliau meletakan semua jawatan parti dan keluar dari PKR. Beliau berbuat demikian kerana kecewa akibat kehilangan keyakinan kepercayaan kepada Ketua Pembangkang-tanpa-parti Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim dan menyifatkan Setiausaha Agung DAP dan Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang sebagai “Perosak Pakatan Rakyat”.

“Tindakan kerajaan pimpinan YAB Lim Guag Eng membelakangkan prinsip prinsip keadilan, hak asasi kemanusiaan dan keadilan semula jadi dalam usaha penyinggiran saya sebagi Pengerusi Island Golf Properties Sdn. Bhd. baru baru ini adalah bukti jelas amalan politik chauvinis, diktatorial dan berfikiran ala kominis. Amalan Lim dan konco konconya  bukan sahaja bersingkap angkuh dan tidak boleh menerima teguran dan kritikan, malahan mereka menyalah gunakan kuasa dn kedudukan mereka untuk kepentingan politik sempit dan agenda jahat mereka”, kenyataan media yang dibacakan Zahrain sendiri.

Kenyataan penuh media Dato Seri’ Zahrain:

 

Beliau juga menegaskan bahwa semua dalam Pulau Pinang terutama orang Melayu “Dianiaya dan ditipu oleh seorang Ketua Menteri yang diktatorial, chauvinis dan ala-kominis. Ini termasuk Pusat Zakat”. Sahabat karib Anwar itu juga mengingatkan pengundi agar “Tidak meletakan terlalu banyak keyakinan dan harapan kepada PR”.

Beliau juga menyifatkan DAP dan Lim Guan Eng secara angkuhnya menyalah gunakan kuasa, untuk kepentingan politik sempit chauvinism semata mata dan tidak langsung menimbang pendapat orang lain. Apabila ditanya apakah keputusan ini pernah dibawa perbincangan melalui mekanism parti dan PKR, Zahrain menjawab “What mechanism?”.

Beliau berjanji akan meneruskan agenda untuk mewakili pengundi Bayan Baru sebagai MP bebas dan menegaskan bahawa keputusan ini tidak melibatkan mana mana parti politik. Beliau yang kecewa dengan kegagalan Anwar melunaskan janji, termasuk “16 September 2008” adalah bukti beliau tidak wajar bersama PKR lagi.

“Saya telah melakukan apa yang terdaya”, dengan penuh nada kecewa dan pasrah sebagai seorang politikus yang telah ditipu dan perkudakan untuk agenda sempit Anwar dan Lim Guan Eng.

Zahrain dengan jelas rasa bertanggung jawab tidak mahu rakyat Malaysia dibohongi oleh Anwar dengan “Janji janji palsu dan hanyalah rhetorik semata mata” dan “Lim Guan Eng yang Diktatorial, Chauvinis dan ala Komunis”. Beliau juga mengaku bahawa “Saya tidak mahu generasi akan datang mengingat saya sebagai sebahagian dari gerombolan yang merosakan negara”.

Perletakan jawatan ini merupakan YB ke VII PKR yang samada meletakan jawatan atau telah meninggalkan parti yang diujudkan semata mata agenda peribadi Anwar itu.

Rulers: Resolve ‘Kalimah Allah’ issue immediately

The 220th Conference of Rulers which convened in Kuala Lumpur want the issue of ‘Kalimah Allah’ be resolved immediately. HRHs as the Custodian to Islam vowed to protect the sancity of Islam, the religion of the Federation of Malaya.

NST has the story:

Rulers want issue over use of word Allah resolved immediately

2010/02/11

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malay Rulers, at the two-day 220th meeting of the Conference of Rulers which concluded today, have taken note of the various requests, letters and memorandums from Muslim organisations and individuals in the country which have expressed sadness over the translation of the word “God” to “Allah”. A statement issued by the office of the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal today said the translation had caused much confusion and dissatisfaction among the people of Malaysia, particularly Muslims.

“This issue, unless resolved immediately, will undermine the sanctity of Islam and, possibly, security and public order as well,” it said.

The statement pointed out that Article 3 of the Federal Constitution provided for Islam to be the country’s official religion and the Malay Rulers to be the heads of religion in the states of the country.

“The Malay Rulers have the responsibility to safeguard the sovereignty and sanctity of Islam as the official religion of the country without neglecting the rights and religious freedom of the other races.

“The Malay Rulers give the undertaking to fulfill their responsibility to protect the sanctity and status of Islam,” it said.

The statement also said that the Malay Rulers felt that the incidents of damaging houses of worship were very dangerous acts of provocation which should never be allowed to take place.

“These treacherous acts driven by emotion must be stopped because all religions do not condone but condemn such acts.

“These are criminal acts which should be contained firmly and immediately,” it said.

In the statement, the Malay Rulers recorded their appreciation for the Royal Malaysia Police for their effectiveness in acting professionally to control the situation in maintaining security and public order.

“The Malay Rulers well understand the heavy responsibility they (the police) have to face, and urge that the efforts of the security forces in maintaining public order be fully supported,” it said.

The statement said the Malay Rulers took note that the issue over the use of the word “Allah” by the Catholic weekly magazine, Herald, was under consideration by the Court of Appeal.

The 220th meeting of the Conference of Rulers, which was chaired by the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, discussed among other things matters related to religion, defence, security, and the appointment of judges of the High Court and Court of Appeal as well as members of the Education Service Commission.

*********

Now it is up to Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak to take up the call by HRH Rulers. In accordance to the Westminster style Constutional Monarchy, it is up to the Prime Minister to advise HM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong on matters related to His Majesty’s position in office, as the Head of Islam and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.

Hence, it is timely that PM Dato’ Seri Najib sought an audience with His Majesty and present for the Conference of Rulers to issue a decree on the ‘Kalimah Allah’, which has now brought the nation and its entire social fabric into a near crisis situation. PM Dato’ Seri Najib should also instruct all Menteri Besars (which include PAS controlled Kedah and Kelantan) to present to their HRH Rulers on the same proposition so that this matter could be resolved once and for all.

A Conference of Rulers decree would solve an oustanding issue which could be dragged further even though it has been taken to court and efforts of consultation. Since Islam is the religion of the Federation of Malaysia and the Federal Constitution recognise the right of Non Muslims to practice their religion as long as it does not encroach into the right of the Muslims, then the decree of the Conference of Rulers is constitutionally appropriate. Where else, the Federal Government should in the same time gather NGOs which include religious bodies to a series of consultative node, jointly and separately, to promote better understanding and tolerance between the different faith. The position and sensitivies of  Islam as the religion of the Federation of Malaysia based on the Constitution should be the primary referral point. 

This move would not at all be seen as the Federal Government is incompetent to resolve the sensitive issue, as protectively feared by some hardliners. The Prime Minister would be seen as acting in accordance to the practice and provisions under the Federal Constitution to advise His Majesty for a decree by the Conference of Rulers.

Police report made against Lim Kit Siang and Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin

A Police Report was made against DAP Supremo and Adviser Lim Kit Siang and deposed DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin in Kuala Muda, Kedah this evening.

Mej. (Rtd.) Anuar Abdul Hamid's Police Report against Lim Kit Siang and Nizar "Brother Yong" Jamaluddin

The Police Report was lodged by a retired Royal Malay Regiment Officer Mej. (Rtd.) Anuar Abdul Hamid, for the 5-0 Federal Court decision on the legatimacy the dismissal of Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Government February last year and the installation of BN Government, on Lim’s outrage “Its shameful for the Judiciary”, deemed contempt of court and deposed DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin’s “Heading towards absolute democracy”, deemed seditious.

Excerpt of the Seditions Act:

Under section 3(1), those acts defined as having a seditious tendency are acts with a tendency:

(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against any Ruler or against any Government;

(b) to excite the subjects of the Ruler or the inhabitants of any territory governed by any government to attempt to procure in the territory of the Ruler or governed by the Government, the alteration, otherwise than by lawful means, of any matter as by law established;

(c) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the administration of justice in Malaysia or in any State;

(d) to raise discontent or disaffection amongst the subjects of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or of the Ruler of any State or amongst the inhabitants of Malaysia or of any State;

(e) to promote feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia;or

(f) to question any matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of part III of the Federal constitution or Article 152, 153 or 181 of the Federal Constitution.

**************

 

The chronic  inability of the duo, who are Pakatan Rakyat MPs and office bearers of their respected parties to accept the Federal Court ruling  is utter appalling. What is worse is their open and blatant BIADAP and KURANG AJARNESS against HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Perak for exercising his constitutional right and power as a Ruler.

More Police Reports on the duo are expected. Clearly these DAP leaders have neither respect for the rights of the others, nor the sovereignity and authority HRH Ruler and Judiciary. This is the very trait of ‘Communist Terrorist’.

Lim Kit Siang and Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin should be cited for contempt of court

As expected, the DAP who have the most to lose in this morning’s Federal Court judgement on Court of Appeal’s decision of over turning Kuala Lumpur High Court decision to grant the decision in favour of deposed DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin’s suit for the Perak Menteri Besar’s seat, made disparaging remarks on the ruling. Ipoh Timur MP DAP-Emperor Lim Kit Siang describing the 5-0 unanimous decision by the Federal Court as “surprising”, made this uncouth remark to “It’s shameful for the Judiciary”.

That’s how KURANG AJAR, the Chinese Chauvinist DAP!

Lim should be cited for ‘contempt of court’ making such a despair remark on the Federal Court ruling. Not only he cannot respect the highest court decision, he even discredit the decision.

This proven the point that the power crazy DAP is only interested in assuming power, without respecting the law, Judiciary and the rights of others. Imagine how they will behave when they have power. Even as a minority, they are this KURANG AJAR towards the Judiciary, just because the decision is unanimous against their wishes.

DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin cided the Federal Court decision “Will only make the monarchy have absolute power”.  This should not be regarded anything less than seditious, suggesting that HRHs does not respect the Constitution and will abuse their power, despite Malaysian democracy is about ‘Constitutional Monarchy’.

Malaysian Insider has the story:

Verdict will lead to absolute monarchy, says Nizar

By Syed Jaymal Zahiid and Debra Chong

PUTRAJAYA, Feb 9 — Toppled Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin said today’s Federal Court ruling that upheld Barisan Nasional (BN) as the rightful state government will lead to an “absolute monarchy.”

“If this decision goes on and becomes the law of the day, it will lead to an absolute monarchy,” Nizar said after the apex court declared Datuk Seri Zambry Abd Kadir the rightful mentri besar.

“That means the Ruler can now dismiss the prime minister or the mentri besar at any time,” said the grim-faced PAS leader.

While Nizar accepted the court decision, he claimed the ruling had “neglected constitutional precedents” and ignored the wishes of the voters.

He slammed the BN government as an “illegitimate” one which had been supported by today’s decision. “It’s not right. It’s wrong. Everybody has a place — the judiciary, executive, sultan. Everybody has a place,” he stressed.

But Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail described the ruling as a “very clear judgment with very, very sound reasonings.”

“There’s no doubt about it. What it has done was to reaffirm the court decision that Datuk Zambry is the rightful mentri besar,” Abdul Gani said, referring to the Federal Court decision read by Chief Judge of Malaya Tan Sri Arifin Zakaria upholding the earlier Court of Appeal decision.

The Court of Appeal ruled last May 22 that Nizar had lost the confidence of the majority of the Perak assemblymen and must resign after failing to get the Perak Sultan to dissolve the state assembly and pave the way for fresh elections when three PR lawmakers turned independent in early February 2009.

Abdul Gani appeared incensed when a reporter asked him if today’s decision would lead to an “absolute monarchy in Perak” as suggested by Nizar.

“No! How can you make such a statement?” he retorted.

“Have you read your constitution? Carefully?” he pressed the reporter asking the question, who replied he had.

Abdul Gani was unsatisfied with the reply however, and called the man “a disgrace” for asking that question.

“What we are known as is a constitutional monarchy system,” he added.

Lawyer Datuk Cecil Abraham, who acted for Zambry, later told reporters in court: “This decision is binding on the state government and the federal government.”

Zambry himself was absent in court and apparently attending a mentris besar and chief ministers’ meeting chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Meanwhile, other PR leaders shared Nizar’s disappointment over today’s ruling.

DAP veteran and Ipoh Timur MP Lim Kit Siang blasted the verdict as the “legalisation of BN’s coup d’etat” and said today is a “sad day for parliamentary democracy.”

Gopeng PKR MP and party vice-president Dr Lee Boon Chye, on the other hand, remained optimistic, saying that the verdict is “a temporary setback” for PR and said they “may lose Perak today but will win it back in the next general election.”

Nizar concurred, saying PR’s focus for now would be winning the silver state back in the next general election which is slated to take place within three years.

The ousted MB also said that their lawyers will look at the prospect of further action once the written judgment is obtained.

**********

The fact is that HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Perak was acting in accordnce with the provisions of the Perak State Constitution. This is clear blatant contempt of court. The two should be cited and tried, in court even though they will never agree with the outcome whenever the result is not in their favour.

Even though DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin is a PAS Exco member, this uncouth remark is not reflective of the PAS’s acceptance to the ruling. MB Kedah, who is also Kedah PAS Commissioner Dato’ Seri Azizan Razak accepted the decision.

Kedah MB Asks All To Accept Court Decision On Zambry As MB

ALOR SETAR, Feb 9 (Bernama) — Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak today called on all quarters to accept the decision of the Federal Court which declared Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir as the Menteri Besar of Perak.

Azizan, who is also state Pas commissioner, said supporters of the opposition coalition, especially in Perak, should not question the court’s decision and should accept it from the aspect of law.

“Never mind, that’s the workings of the court, we hope it is a just decision and I have nothing to comment as the court has done its work and Zambry has been declared as menteri besar by the court,” he said when contacted here.

Azizan said Kedah too was awaiting a court decision on the Kota Siputeh state assembly seat and the state hoped for a just decision again.

The seat is a centre of attraction pending a Court of Appeal decision on the status of the Jerlun Umno division chief, Datuk Abu Hassan Sarip, as to whether he was still the assemblyman for the area or to call for a by-election.

A panel of five judges led by Court of Appeal president Tan Sri Alauddin Mohd Sheriff unanimously ruled that the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, had exercised his royal power to appoint Zambry to replace Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin from the DAP-PAS-PKR coalition after he was satisfied that the Mohammad Nizar had lost the majority vote of the state legislative assembly.

In KUALA LUMPUR, Opposition chief and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he was not surprised by the decision.

He said what was important was to refer the matter to the “people’s court” for a decision as to who was qualified to lead the state of Perak.

Anwar said this to reporters when met at the Court Complex here where he is on trial for the alleged sodomy of his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Asked about his advice to opposition supporters, especially in Perak, he said he called on them to use their time to update their respective party machinery and explain current issues to the people.

In PENANG, the DAP expressed deep disappointment over the decision.

Its secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said the Federal Court decision was contrary to the basic democratic principle that a government must be elected by the people.

“Any government that does not derive any directly elected mandate, not only violates the democratic principle of the people’s power but also questions the legitimacy of a people-centric government of the people, by the people and for the people,” he said in a statement.

He said the party reiterated its call to dissolve the Perak State Assembly and return power to the people by holding fresh elections.

That is ‘fairness’, Pakatan Rakyat Primates style. These remarks reflective of DAP’s ‘communist terrorist’ nature, who never fails to disrespect other peoples’ rights and do their best, even forcefully to remain in power.

The DAP leaders seems to argue that ‘democracy is dead’ for this ruling. They must remember that the rakyat voted for the 28 Perak ADUNs who are still Pakatan Rakyat. There are the other 28 ADUNs who the rakyat voted for Barisan Nasional. The fact that the 3 ADUNs who decided to abandon their parties in favour to be independent representatives does not mean ‘democracy is dead’. The rakyat voted these three candidates into the State Assembly, regardless what their party is.

Prior to these three abandoning their parties, it was Pakatan Rakyat who tried to ‘buy’ 31 BN MPs into supporting them, as part of the Power-abuse-convict Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim ‘grand plan’ of taking over of the Federal Government by 16 September 2008.  Had this plan went through, would DAP made the same statement as Lim Guan Eng made in Penang?

Daulat Tuanku

Five man Federal Court bench headed by Court of Appeal President Tan Sri Alauddin Mohd. Sheriff this morning unanimously decided that HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Perak acted in accordance with the Perak Constitution upon the dismissal of DAP-puppet-MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin and the vote of no confidence outside the augur State Assembly Hall is deemed rightful. Hence, the Federal Court uphold the decision of Court of Appeal.

NST has the story:

Zambry is rightful Perak MB

2010/02/09

 

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir is the rightful Perak Menteri Besar as his appointment by the Sultan is constitutional, rules the Federal Court today. It was a unanimous decision by the five-member bench.

As soon as the decision was announced, his supporters emerged from the court waving to the crowd as Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin’s group chanted “Tipu! Tipu” (Lies! Lies!).

Naran Singh, legal advisor for Perak Barisan Nasional described the federal court ruling as a ‘good decision’, pointing out that it is the first time this matter has been taken to the federal court.

Earlier, supporters from both sides gathered outside the Palace of Justice to show their support with occasional face-off with police personnel.

**********

HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Azlan Shah came to the decision after meeting up with the ADUNs Osman Jailu,Radzi Jamaluddin and  Hee Yit Foong (who was then the Perak State Asembly Deputy Speaker)  who decided to abandon their respective Pakatan Rakyat parties and became independent representatives. They also willing to throw their support to Barisan Nasional, where then Deputy Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak nominated ADUN Pangkor Dato’ Dr. Zambry Abd. Kadir as the leader when the offer to set up the 10th Perak State Government was extended by HRH Paduka Seri Sultan.

Convinced that DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin no longer has the majority control of the Perak State Assembly despite an audience sought specifically to dissolve the state assembly in favour of a snap election, he was summarily dismissed in a humiliating fashion and HRH Paduka Seri Sultan offered and invited BN instead to take control of the 10th Perak State Government. Federal Court also interpreted that when DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin sought an audience t HRH Paduka Seri Sultan to ask t dissolution of the State Assembly, Pakatan Rakyat already lost  the command of the majority. Dr Zambry was appointed in a ceremony marred by a lot of anti-Palace sentiments, which include the attempt to block HRH Raja Muda Perak Raja Dr. Nazrin Shah Sultan Azlan’s entourage into the Iskandariah Palace in Kuala Kangsar.

More dramas preceded thenafter. The drama of the authority of calling for the Perak State Assembly to convene, illegal ‘State Assembly under the rain tree’ and the near scuffle in ‘Pimates the Perak State Assembly’ in front of HRH Regent of Perak was the epitome of these Kurang Ajar theatrics.

This Federal Court decision is deemed a landmark case for the history of Malaysian constitution. The authority of a Ruler in accordance to the State Constitution (Article 16 clause 7)  prevails the Federal Constitution.

Cubaan Anwarista ulangi ‘Reformasi’ ditolak oleh Pemuda PAS

Pada 6 Februari 2010 1445hrs, Angkatan Muda KeAdilan bertemu mengenai hala tuju sayap pemuda PKR itu terhadap Ketua Pembangkang Mantan-salahguna-kuasa Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim. Mesyuarat dianjurkan di ibu pejabat PAS Jalan Raja Laut dan dipengerusikan bersama oleh Ketua AMK Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin, Ketua DAPSY Anthony Loke dan Ketua Pemuda PAS Nasharuddin Tantawi.

30 orang wakil ketiga tiga parti komponen Pakatan Rakyat, termasuk wakil NGO dan pelajar IPT. Mesyuarat berthemakan ‘Himpunan Gerakan Reformasi 98’ dengan slogan “Forever Strong” adalah bertujuan untuk menghidupkan kembali budaya politik membangkitkan emosi rakyat sehingga berlaku rusuhan jalanan. Ini adalah strategi sama yang digunakan semasa Anwar dibuang Kabinet dan UMNO pada 2 dan 3 September 1998 kerana salah laku sumbang seksual meliwat dan kemudian setelah berjaya menagih simpati dan membangkitkan emosi sehingga berlaku beberapa rusuhan jalanan ‘Reformasi’, menggunakan alasan penangkapan Anwar bawah Ordinan Darurat kerana menganjurkan perhimpunan awam sehingga menggugat keselamatan negara sebagai modal untuk meneruskan rusuhan.

Sepanjang mesyuarat membincangkan rancangan untuk mengadakan siri penerangan kepada ahli PR dan rakyat mengenai cubaan ‘memfitnah’ Anwar sekali lagi atas dakwaan meliwat. Mereka juga bercadang untuk menghidupkan semula demonstrasi sehingga berlaku rusuhan jalanan ‘Reformasi’ setiap Sabtu dan Ahad.

Bagaimanapun cadangan ini dibantah oleh Pemuda PAS dan 5 orang wakil AMK. Kematangan dalam proses pendewasaan Pemuda PAS ini menunjukan mereka tidak mudah dipengaruhi dengan gesaan terdesak puak Anwarista untuk ulangan semula demonstrasi sehingga berlaku rusuhan jalanan ini, yang sebenarnya secara strategik akan merugikan mereka kelak apabila terpaksa bertemu pengundi dalam PRU 13 antara 2012-3. Pemuda PAS juga mula sedar bahawa mereka sudah mula kehilangan sokongan akar umbi kerana ketaksuban memberi sokongan pukal kepada Anwar, dalam menghadapi masalah peribadi yang amat rumit. Dalam pada itu, PR sendiri menghadapi kegetiran dalam krisis antara dan intra parti, termasuk kebelakangan ini ‘pemberontakan’ dalam PKR sendiri.

Nampaknya, ‘drama’ lama tidak laku lagi. Memandangkan skongan amat hambar penyokong Anwar sendiri seharian di Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur semenjak perbicaraan bermula minggu lepas berbanding dengan 1999, menunjukan rata rata rakyat sudah bosan dengan ‘drama’ Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim. Keyakinan Pendakwaraya Peguamcara Negara II Dato’ Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden dalam penghujahan pembukaan kes dan testimoni mangsa liwat Mohd. Saiful Bukhari Azlan setakat ini mengakibatkan ‘drama lama’ ini tidak lagi meyakinkan, termasuk ‘pasukan’ sendiri.

Expect another drama from the ‘Drama King’

Disappointed with the lack of response from his supporters on Friday, Former-abuse-of-power-convict Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim, it is reliably learnt, has ordered his lap dogs to make sure that they pull no stops to organise massive rallies and demonstrations to protest his court case.

Words have already leaked that these lap dogs have been working overtime “inviting” supporters and party members to gather at the Federal Territory Mosque in Jalan Duta on Monday morning and then proceed to the Jalan Duta courthouse where Anwar’s sodomy trial is being held.

Having failed to postpone the trial despite numerous attempts, the demonstrations is probably hoped to do the job.

While demonstrations and Anwar is synonymous, what is disturbing is that the mosque in Jalan Duta is being used as the rallying point, a desecration of the sanctity of the religious house. Lest people forget, in 1998, when the ‘Reformasi’ demonstrations were in full swing in Kuala Lumpur, Anwar and his supporters were unabashedly using mosques to gather and gear their demonstrations.

Anwar, his Anwaristas and supporters may not realise that the mosques are attended not only by those who supports him but also by those who are neutral as well as those who could see him for what he really is.

By using the mosques and its premises, he is turning away some of the congregation apart from further dividing them. If the ummah is already divided due to the political differences, the mosques is where some kind of ceasefire or unity can be realised albeit temporarily.

By taking the demonstrations to fulfil his personal agenda and ego, what little semblance of Muslim unity which can be found in the mosques is also being sacrificed.

Muslims, regardless on which side of the political fence they belonged to, must be able to see this and not allow Anwar to use the mosques for his political end.

Otherwise, the last space in the country, where political differences can be placed aside as the Muslims congregate to perform their religious obligations to their Creator, will also be politicised and turned into a centre of divide.

Australians setting ‘border post’ here in Malaysia?

It seems that the Aussies are setting up their ‘border post’ here in this tanahair, Malaysia and not down under in the smallest continent on the planet. Their excuse is to curb ‘human traficking’.

The Star has the story:

Saturday February 6, 2010

Australia sets up border post in KL

PETALING JAYA: Australia has set up its Customs and Border Protection Service post in Kuala Lumpur to combat human smuggling activities in the region.

Australian High Commissioner Penny Williams, who opened the post yesterday, said the facility would further enhance her country’s ties with Malay­sia.

She added that the co-operation would also include common border security interests.

*************

The ‘Customs and Border Protection Service’ post officiated yesterday by Her Excellency Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur means that the Australian Home and Defense Ministry officials will do their examinations and screening on the entry into Australia from our borders, which is 3,000 kms away from the actual Australian coast.

How this will be implemented is not clear. Will there be white Aussies with side arms and encrypted communications here in our borders, determining what is allowed to leave our coast bound for Australia using Australian laws and discretion? Will there be armed Australian vessels plying our coast and free to board and inspect any vessels that leave our coast bound for down under?

What rights have the Aussies to impose their laws here in our tanahair, even for the benefit of their own security? Did the Foreign, Home and/or Defense Ministries formally agree to all these arrangements?

Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak did agree on principle with Aussie Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in July 2009 upon the latter’s first official visit to Putrajaya, on the ‘human traficking problem’ that looms Australia where one of the source or transit point is from Malaysia and measures are to be taken to resolve this problem. However, it does not mean at all cost that the Malaysian Government will ever concur in ‘surrendering’ our sovereignity and allowing our maritime borders be subjected to the maritime controls and authorities’ processes of another country. This is not even by our immediate neighbours such as Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, the Phillipines or Vietnam. Let alone, Australia who is not even our neighbour!

Our suspicion is that neither Foreign, Home nor Defense Ministries ever agreed to this. More over the mechanics. If such, then the Aussies really have a nerve to impose something in someone’s else home without proper consent. This is pure ‘Policing’, being an unauthorised ‘Sheriff’ but from our home is really unacceptable!

Pure Aussie arrogance and kurang ajar!

* Post scriptum: If the Aussies are imposing this, can the Indians impose their Police and laws to protect their citizens, in Australia?

A Cape Town khutbah

A Cape Town Khutba
 
 03/02/2010
Introduction by Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-SufiAlmost a decade ago when I came to South Africa I saw that while Islam had survived, indeed it had been respected by the previous regime despite the christian iniquities, it had lost its social dynamism. The Jumu’a had been robbed of its political authority, I mean the khutba from the Mimbar.

Modern capitalism had everywhere made two actions to put Islam out of action. Firstly, they doctrinally encouraged new mosques to replace the Mimbar with a christian pulpit. Secondly, cynically exploiting the need for an Arabic khutba they had replaced the fresh political discourse of our tradition with a formula repeated in Arabic and at the same time introducing a “pre-khutba talk” from a lectern. Thus, not only was the message reduced from its power-base, the Mimbar, but it robbed the jama’at of the vital ruhani time of reflection before the Imam is seated. For when the Imam sits the angels shut their book of records. Thus, both the time of Haqiqa and that of Shari’at have been taken from us.

It seemed that a properly mounted Jumu’a was the first step to Islamic awakening. I was helped by a generous gift to the Cape Town Muslims. Hajj Mukhtar al-Bukhari of Malaysia purchased for the city and our Jama’at a noble building in the heart of the downtown district. Once ready we then began to impose the living pattern of the Jumu’a according to the practice of the people of Madinah.

We are fortunate in having Shaykh Habib Bewley as our Imam Khatib, son of the distinguished Muslim scholars, Shaykh Abdalhaqq Bewley and Hajja Aisha Bewley. Shaykh Habib, himself a scholar of the Qarawyn Mosque in Fez and other distinguished Moroccan teachers, has made an impact on his Jama’at, and can now see before him a packed and attentive gathering every Friday. The following Khutba was enthusiastically received and there were many requests for its text. It’s my privilege to host it to the wider community of the Internet

Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi

A Cape Town Khutba

الحمد لله، الحمد لله الذي جعل محبةَ الصحابةِ الكرامِ من محبَّةِ نبيِّه، وجعلهم كالنجومِ بأيِّهِمُ اقتدى الإنسانُ اهتدى إلى هَديِه، نحمده تعالى ونستعينه، ونشكره تعالى ونستغفره ونستغيثه، نعوذ بالله من شرور أنفسنا ومن سيئات أعمالنا، من يهد الله فهو المهتد ومن يضلل فلن تجد له وليا مرشدا، ونشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك و له الحمد، يحيي ويميت، بيده الخير، وهو على كل شيء قدير،  ونشهد أن سيدنا و مولانا محمداً عبده ورسوله، وحبيبه وصفيه، بلغ الرسالة وأدّى الأمانة ونصح الأمة، النبي الأمي الذي أرسله الله بالهدى والدين الحق، بشيرا ونذيرا بين يدي الساعة، صلى الله عليه وسلم وعلى آله وأصحابه ومن تبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين.

        أما بعد! فيا عباد الله اتقوا الله حق تقاته ولا تموتن إلا وأنتم مسلمون. يأيها الذين ءامنوا اتقوا الله وقولوا قولا سديدا يصلح لكم أعمالكم ويغفر لكم ذنوبكم. ومن يطع الله ورسوله فقد فاز فوزا عظيما. اتقوا الله فيما أمر وانتهوا عما نها عنه وزجر.

قال الله تعالى في كتابه العزيز: وَلْتَكُنْ مِنْكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ وَلَا تَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ تَفَرَّقُوا وَاخْتَلَفُوا مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَهُمُ الْبَيِّنَاتُ

 

            Allah says in His Mighty Book, the translation of which is, “Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success. Do not be like those who split up and differed after the Clear Signs came to them.”

            Muslims, during recent years, there have been concerted attempts to change the parameters of the Deen of Allah and turn it upside down,  by bringing ideas, concepts and movements into the mainstream that have always been considered by the Muslim umma to be misguided innovation. This attack on the identity of the Deen has been two-pronged, being waged by elements within the Muslim Community as well as enemies without, and is exemplified by the attempt to grant the Shi’a deen (for that is how their own scholars, including Khomeini in his book Kashfe Esrar, refer to their religion) – to grant the Shia deen the same status as the four traditionally-recognised madhhabs, by referring to it by the misnomer of the Ja’fari Madhhab, whereas, in fact, Ja’far ibn Sadiq, rahimahullah, never established a madhhab but rather passed on his knowledge of fiqh matters to Imam Abu Hanifa and Imam Malik, who were both his students.

            And indeed, this attempt to confer legitimacy on the Shi’a religion has met with some success in recent years, with the Amman Declaration of 2004 being followed by the ‘Sunni Shia Unity Declaration’ of 2008, both signed and supported by large numbers of Muslim academics and scholars.

            While at the same time, Iran, and by extension, the Shi’a religion, has gained ground in the eyes of the wider Muslim by championing the Palestinian resistance and standing up for Islam in the face of American imperialism. Indeed, its status as Enemy Number One of the developed world has endeared it in the eyes of the downtrodden Muslim masses, many of whom are starting to view Iran as the means to the re-empowerment of the Muslim umma. And that fact has not gone unnoticed within Iranian and Shi’a circles, with Shi’a leaders now presuming to make statements on behalf of the Muslim umma and Shi’a missionaries making inroads into communities that previously shunned them.

            These same Shi’a missionaries are at work here in Cape Town and are taking full advantage of recent trends to try to convince us that the differences between us and them are minor and superficial. They are Muslims just like us they say, the only difference is that they love the family of the Prophet more. This is a lie. They are practising what they call ‘taqiyya’. They are trying to worm their way into your hearts and gain your acceptance and trust, and will only reveal the extent of their deviation when they feel they have won you over. For the differences between our deen and theirs are far more fundamental than most of the Muslim umma realise. One of those I touched on last week when I discussed their practices on the Day of Ashura. Today, I would like to discuss another and that is the way they view the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, whom every right-thinking Muslim honours and reveres.

            Qadi Iyad says in his famous book, ash-Shifa fi tareefi huquqi-l-Mustafa:

ومن توقيرِه وبِرِّه صلى الله عليه وسلم توقيرُ أصحابِه وبِرُّهم، ومعرفةُ حقِّهم، والاقتداءُ بهم، وحسنُ الثناء عليهم والاستغفارُ لهم، والإمساكُ عما شَجَرَ بينهم، ومعاداةُ من عاداهم، والإضرابُ عن أخبارِ المؤرِّخين وجهلةِ الرُّواةِ وضلالِ الشيعةِ والمبتدعين القادحةِ في أحدٍ منهم.

 

     “Part of respecting and obeying the Prophet, consists in respecting his Companions, obeying them, recognising what is due to them, following them, praising them, asking forgiveness for them, refraining from discussing their differences, showing enmity to those who are hostile towards them and shunning the misguidance of the Shi‘a and the innovators and the reports of any historians or ignorant transmitters who detract from any of them.”

     We revere the Companions because we love the Messenger of Allah and obey him without question. We are pleased with the Companions because Allah and His Messenger were pleased with them. Allah says:

لقد رضي الله عن المؤمنين إذ يبايعونك تحت الشجرة

 

     the translation of which is, “Allah was pleased with the believers when they gave allegiance to you under the tree.” And Anas related that the Prophet said,

مثلُ أصحابي كمَثلِ المِلحِ في الطعامِ، لا يصلُحُ الطعامُ إلا به

 

     “The likeness of my Companions is that of salt with food. Food is not good without it.” And Jabir narrated that he said,

إن اللهَ اختار أصحابي على جميعِ العالمين سِوى النبيين والمرسلين، واختار لي منهم أربعةً: أبا بكرٍ وعمرَ وعثمانَ وعليا ، فجعلهم خيرَ أصحابي، وفي أصحابي كلِّهم خير

 

     “Allah chose my Companions over everything else in existence except for the Prophets and the Messengers. He chose four of them for me: Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman and ‘Ali and made them the best of my Companions, although all of my Companions are good.” This is the exalted status of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, men and women chosen by Allah Himself above the rest of creation; men and women in whose company the Messenger of Allah, the absolute pinnacle of creation, chose to be; men and women to whom everyone of us owe a debt of gratitude for the way they preserved the deen of Allah and passed it on to us whole and unimpaired.

     These were the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, and yet those same Shi’a who come to us and say they are just like us, claim that all of the Companions were astray except for a handful. Those same Shi’a write books slandering Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Muawiyya. Those same Shi’a claim that Abu Hurayra was a liar who fabricated hadiths. Those same Shi’a revile the wives of the Messenger of Allah, especially A’isha and Hafsa. Those same Shi’a disregard the direct instructions of the Messenger of Allah and bring down the curse of Allah upon them.

قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: من سب أصحابي، فعليه لعنةُ الله والملائكة والناسِ أجمعين، لا يقبَلُ الله منه صرفا، ولا عدلا

 

     The Prophet said, “Anyone who curses my Companions has the curse of Allah on him, as well as that of the angels and all people. And Allah will not accept any exchange or recompense from him.”

     The view the Shi’a have of the Companions is repugnant, offensive and disrespectful, and no-one who holds such a view can be considered part of mainstream Islam. Ayyub as-Sakhtiyani said,

من أحبَّ أبا بكرٍ  فقد أَقامَ الدّين، ومن أحب عمر فقد أوضح السبيل، ومن أحب عثمان  فقد استضاء بنور الله، ومن أحب عليا فقد أخذ بالعروة الوثقى، ومن أحسن الثناء على أصحاب محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم فقد بَرِئ من النفاق، ومن انتقص أحدا منهم فهو مبتِدعٌ مخالفٌ للسنة والسلفِ الصالح، وأخافُ ألّا يصعُدَ له عملٌ إلى السماء حتى يحبَّهم جميعا، ويكونَ قلبُه سليما

 

     “Whoever loves Abu Bakr has established the deen. Whoever loves ‘Umar has made the way clear. Whoever loves ‘Uthman has been illuminated by the light of Allah. Whoever loves ‘Ali has taken hold of the firm handle. Whoever praises the Companions of Muhammad is free of hypocrisy. But whoever disparages any of them is an innovator who opposes the Sunna and the right-acting Salaf, and it is feared that none of his actions will rise to heaven until such time that  his heart returns to soundness and he loves every one of them.”

أقول قولي هذا و أستغفر الله العظيم لي و لكم و لسائر المسلمين من كل ذنب فاستغفروه إنه هو التوّابُ الرَّحيم
الحمد لله الحمد لله رب العالمين كما ينبغي لجلالِ وجهِهِ وعظيمِ سُلطانِه، أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له وأشهد أن محمداً عبده ورسوله، صلى الله وسلم وبارك عليه وعلى آله وصحبه، والتابعين وتابعي التابعين ومن تبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين.

أما بعد! فيأيها الذين ءامنوا اتقوا الله ما استطعتم واسمعوا وأطيعوا وأنفقوا خيرا لأنفسكم. يا عباد الله أوصيكم وإياي بتقوى الله وطاعته وأحذركم وإياي عن معصيته ومخالفته.

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: احفَظُوني في أصحابي وأصهارِي، فإنه مَن حفِظني فيهم حفِظه اللهُ في الدنيا والآخرة، ومَن لم يحفَظْنِي فيهم تَخلَّى اللهُ منه، ومَن تخلَّى اللهُ منه يُوشَكُ أَن يَأخُذَه

 

     The Prophet said, “Protect me in my Companions and my relations by marriage. Anyone who protects me in them will be protected by Allah in this world and the Next. Anyone who does not protect me in them will be abandoned by Allah. and all those abandoned by Allah are on the point of being seized.”

     It is our duty as Muslims to speak out in defense of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah and to warn those who speak against them of the consequences and implications of doing so for it warrants both punishment in this world and the curse of Allah. The Prophet said,

من سَبَّ أصحابي فاضرِبوه

 

     “Whoever curses my Companions, beat him. That was the position adopted by the Companions themselves and the Tabiun, for when Musa ibn ‘Isa al-‘Abbasi heard that a man had reviled ’Aisha, he said,

فَاجْلِدْهُ ثمانين، وَحَلِّقْ رأسَه

 

     “Flog him eighty times and shave his head” And when ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab heard that his son, ‘Ubaydullah ibn ‘Umar, had reviled al-Miqdad ibn al-Aswad, he threatened to cut his tongue out, saying,

دَعُوني أَقطَعُ لسانَه حتى لا يشتُمَ أَحدَ أصحابِ النبيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم بَعد

 

     “Let me cut out his tongue so that he will never again revile any of the Companions of the Prophet.” And that was the position adopted by the major schools of Fiqh. Imam Malik said,

من شتمَ النبيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قُتِلَ، ومن شَتَمَ أصحابه أُدِّبَ

 

     “Whoever reviles the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is killed. Whoever reviles his Companions should be disciplined.” And Sahnun said,

من قال في أبي بكرٍ وعمرَ وعثمانَ وعلي: إنهم كانوا على ضلالةٍ وكُفرٍ قُتِل، ومن شتم غيرَهم من الصحابة بمِثلِ ذلك نُكِّل النِكالَ الشديدَ .

 

     “Whoever says that any of Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman and ‘Ali were misguided and unbelievers should be killed. And whoever curses any of the other Companions in the same way should be given a severe punishment.” However, it should be stated here that this is not a call to vigilantism, for such punishments may only be meted out by those in authority following the legal ruling of a qadi.

     The reason why the prohibition against insulting the Companions is so strong and the punishment for doing so so severe is because they were the ones who transmitted the deen of the Messenger of Allah to the later generations and so if you call them into question, you call the authenticity of the entire deen into question. If they were not to be trusted, then all of the hadith literature would have to be discarded and we would be left with nothing upon which to base our lives apart from the Qur’an. So none of us would know how to pray or when to pray and none of us would be able to pay zakat. And there would be no unity among the Muslims as everyone would be interpreting the Qur’an according to his own appetites and whims and following his own path.

     Criticism of the Companions is, by extension, a criticism of the Prophet himself, since it is an implication that he surrounded himself with hypocrites and liars and put them in positions of authority over the Muslims. And that is especially true with respect to his wives, for it suggests that he was totally lacking in good judgement.

     And it is also a criticism of Allah since it is an implication that Allah is lying when he addresses them, saying:

كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ

 

     the translation of which is, “You are the best community ever to be produced before mankind. You enjoin the right, forbid the wrong and have iman in Allah.”

     So, whoever curses the Companions disparages Allah and His Messenger and provides ammunition to those who seek to destroy the deen. And this is just one of the tenets of the Shi’a faith that contradict the deen of Islam that we hold dear. But despite these views, we are being told that we should welcome them with open arms and give their deen the same status as our own! We will not do that! We will not take as friends those who accuse the Companions of willfully distorting the deen of the death of the Messenger and we will continue to warn against them until they repent. The Prophet said, as related in the Shifa of Qadi Iyad,

لا تسُبُّوا أصحابي، فإنه يجِيءُ قومٌ فِي آخرِ الزمانِ يسُبُّونَ أصحابي فلا تُصَلُّوا عليهم، ولا تصَلُّوا معهم، ولا تُناكِحُوهم، ولا تُجالِسُوهم، وإن مرضوا فلا تعودوهم

 

     “Do not curse my Companions. A people will come at the end of time who will curse my Companions. Do not pray over them or behind them, do not marry with them and do not sit in their assemblies. And when they are ill, do not visit them.”

     We ask Allah to increase us in love of Him and His Prophet. And we ask Him to increase us in love of His family and Companions and give us the means to defend them from any who seek to revile them and cast aspersions upon them. We ask Him to allow us to see the truth as being true and give us the strength to follow it and falsehood as being false and give us the strength to avoid it. We ask Allah to, by the rank of the shahadatayn that links us to them, to guide the Shi’a back to the truth. We ask Him to cleanse their hearts of hatred for the Sahaba and cleanse their tongues of the vile insults that defile them. We ask Him to join the hearts of the Muslims and give victory to His deen.

إنَّ اللهَ ومَلائِكَتَهُ يُصلُّونَ على النَّبِي يَا أَيُها الذينَ آمنوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وسَلِّمُوا تَسْليماً. اللهمَّ صَلِّ وسَلِّم وبارِك عَلَيْهِ وعلى آلِهِ وصَحْبِهِ  أجمعين.

وارض اللهم عن الخلفاء الراشدين أبي بكرٍ وعمرَ وعثمانَ وعلي ، وعن سائر الصحابة أجمعين، خصوصا الأنصارَ منهم والمهاجرين، وعن التابعين وتابعي التابعين ومن تبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين.

اللهم اهد ولاة أمور المسلمين لما يرضيك ولاتباع سنة نبيك صلى الله عليه وسلم  وثبت أقدامهم على الصراط المستقيم وأصلحهم يا رب العالمين.

اللهم بارك على شيخنا، و على أميرنا، وعلى جميع أمراءِ وزعماء المسلمين. 

اللهم بارك على المسلمين في هذه المدينة ووفقهم لما تحبه وترضاه يا أكرم الأكرمين.

اللهمّ أَعِزَّ الْلإسلامَ والمُسِلمينَ (3)  واَخْذُلِ الكُفْرَ والكافِرينَ، وانْصُرِ المُجاهِدينَ في سَبِيلِ اللهِ. واجْعَلْ كَلِمََتَكَ هِيَ العُلْيَا وكَلِمَةَ الكُفْرِ هِيَ السُّفْلى.

ربنا ءاتنا في الدنيا حسنة وفي الأخرة حسنة وقنا عذاب النار.

اللهم لا تضعْ في مقامِنا هذا ذنبا إلا غفرْتَه، ولا عيبا إلا سترْتَه، ولا مريضا إلا شفيتَهُ وعافيتَه، ولا مسجونا إلا طلَّقْتَ سراحَه، ولا مسافرا في برِّك وبحرِك إلا سلِمتَهُ وغنِمْتَه.

إن الله يأمر بالعدل والإحسان وإيتاء ذي القربى وينهى عَنِ الفحشاءِ والمُنكَرِ والبغي، يعظكم لعلكم تذكرون، ولَذِكْرُ اللهِ أكبر والله يَعْلَمُ ما تَصْنَعُون. وقُومُوا إِلَى صَلاتِكُمْ يرحمكم الله

Is Zahid acting as a precursor for Anwar trampling PM?

Defense Minister Dato’ Seri Zahid Hamidi made another ‘explosive’ statement, with regards to the Armed Forces again. This time, he alleged that MINDEF officials which include Armed Forces personnel were ‘selling out’ information to the foreign embassies, on behalf of their respective government’s interest in Malaysia’s defense.

The Star has the story:

Defence Ministry secrets being leaked (Updated)

By IZATUN SHAARI

KUALA LUMPUR: Internal sources within the Armed Forces have been found to be leaking Defence Ministry secrets to a foreign embassy in the country, claimed its minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi.

Issuing a stern warning to the individuals responsible, he added that the ministry would not compromise with such practices which violate the Official Secrets Act 1972.

Zahid said he would meet the Prime Minister to discuss the matter soon before making a more detailed announcement.

“I don’t want anyone at any position to sell information to external parties. I will make an announcement after meeting the Prime Minister regarding the information that was leaked to a foreign embassy, which allegedly used internal sources,” he told newsmen after his ministry’s monthly gathering and launch of its blood donation campaign here Thursday.

Zahid said the alleged information leakage was discovered following investigations by the ministry’s intelligence corps.

He said after receiving the information, the intelligence corps worked closely with the police to carry out further investigations.

Hopefully, he said foreign defence attaches would carry out their duties according to set guidelines.

“I hope no one will take advantage of their positions in this country to carry out unethical activities.”

On whether the alleged individuals were selling information about the country’s defence, he said: “I believe they have been paid.”

On how long such a practice had been going on, he declined to elaborate, saying that: “I will announce later.”

He said the intelligence corps had been monitoring such practices and previously, tens of lower rank officers had been arrested and charged in the military and civil courts.

Earlier in his speech at the monthly gathering, he said civil servants including Armed Forces personnel were bound by the Official Secrets Act and if they leak information, they could be charged under the law.

“Don’t be enticed into exposing highly confidential information or official secrets for your own interest,” he said, adding that this could ultimately affect the country’s security and subsequently weaken its defence capability.

On another development, he said the ministry had forwarded an application for military personnel’s salary rise to the Public Service Department following the announcement on the new salary scheme and allowances for police sergeants and below.

He said the department was now carrying out a detailed study on the matter.

“I was informed that when the economic situation starts to show signs of full recovery, special consideration will be given to military personnel’s pay hike. I hope they can remain patient,” he added.

**********

 

This is a serious allegation, even as a reminder to MINDEF monthly meeting. How true and the extend of the problem, if real, is yet to be determined. However, Zahid’s intention has casted a lot of doubts.

This is the second time Zahid went into the limelight of media attention, with regards to controversial issues that looms the Armed Forces. A few weeks ago, Zahid announced the theft of the spare F 5E engines, which was already under Police investigations. The erratic information management that preceed the announcement was also embarassing. It attracted a lot of criticism to a point where the credibility of the Armed Forces was eroded down to a record low.

His intention of making these controversial announcements against the MINDEF, Armed Forces even the Federal Government at large is not clear. However, it is a perfect opportunity for the ‘Pandora’s Box’ to be opened, especially in the angle where the Oppositions are running really low on credibility and support.  The appropriateness of making this latest announcement is questionable and ultra sensitive issues with regards to espionage and counter measures against it are not discussed in the open, let alone as a media statement. There are other ways of dealing with this, especially without insulting officers of His Majesty’s Armed Forces.

Zahid was appointed Minister of Defense in the April 2009 Cabinet reshuffle, where Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak presented his new Federal Government line up after taking over from PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Within the nine months in office, he made these controversial disclosures in the spirit of ‘transparency’. He also made some strategic decision to hive off the MiG 29Ns superiority fighter squadron, where many defense analysts question his real motive and the direct effect on the defense of the realm.

In July at the Paris Air Show, out of protocol Zahid met up with Israeli Defense Minister and former Prime Minister Ehud Barak in a deemed highly controversial engagement. Barak was the Israeli Defense Minister during the seize of Gaza and West Bank and Malaysia do not have  diplomatic relations with the Zionist state.

Obviously, Zahid’s decision is to ‘shame’ PM Dato’ Seri Najib. Being a veteran defense minister for the third term, these announcements that Zahid is making is indirectly backlashing against his Boss’s credibility and at a point, integrity. It is as if Zahid is simply giving ‘bullets’ for the Oppositions, who are currently plagued with a lot of internal and intra-party issues and near ‘bankrupt’ with political materials to work on.

Zahid was one time Partyless-Opposition-Leader Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim’s henchman. He was Anwar’s man taking over from Tan Sri Rahim Thamby Chik as UMNO Youth Leader when the latter was plagued with personal issues. Zahid is remembered for his ‘Cronyism and Nepotism’ speech at the UMNO Youth Annual Assembly opening address in 1998. When Anwar was sacked from Cabinet and UMNO in early September 1998 and subsequently launched the mobstreet-personal-agenda-deemed-political movement ‘Reformasi’ and along with other Anwaristas, Zahid was arrested  a few days late by the Police Special Branch whilst in Kota Kinabalu and held under Emergency Ordinance.

A few months ago, Zahid created a ruckus within UMNO circle when he announced in a pro-Khairy Jamaluddin UMNO Youth pow-wow in Janda Baik that if he ever becomes Prime Minister, he would summarily appoint the highly controversial UMNO Youth Leader as a Cabinet Minister. Many analyst see this as Zahid’s endorsement of UMNO Youth ‘pressure’ on PM Dato’ Seri Najib for a Cabinet appointment, especially as the BN Youth Chairman, Khairy was purposely isolated out from the Cabinet as compared to UMNO Youth Deputy Head Dato’ Razali Ibrahim, Wanita MCA Head Dato’ Paduka Chew Mei Fun, MCA Youth Head Dato’ Wee Ka Siong and Gerakan Wanita Head Dato’ Tan Lian Hoe.

Many believed that as a ‘mole’, Zahid is ‘acting’ as precursor for Anwar and the Oppositions to trampled PM Najib’s Government and Leadership, which has started to gain momentum from the all-time low record of PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah’s regime and ‘dis-integration’ of Pakatan Rakyat which also involved Anwar’s personal problems.

PM Dato’ Seri Najib should seriously consider to remove Zahid from the Cabinet before more damage is done, along with other PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah’s relics such as Dato’ Seri Nazri Aziz, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yackop, Dato’ Khaled Nordin and Dato’ Johari Baharom. This consideration against Zahid should also include the Police case against him alleging beating up a young man in 2007.
