O ye, of little faith….?

Utusan Malaysia Saturday 7 May 2011

After the scoop on the Chinese Chauvinist party DAP trying to use some pastors for their political agenda seven days ago and a day later Utusan Malaysia carry that as the front page story. It instantanously became a nationwide controversy, where many demanded that proofs be produced. UMNO Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin even charged that “It is baseless”.

Today, a new light have been shed.

A Penang DAP member Mohd. Razali Abdul Rahman came forward and made a Police report in North East Penang this morning. He asked for investigation on the ultra sensational and highly controversial topic, which rocked the nation for the whole week.

Razali claimed was very disappointed on all what have been reported on the issue and he no longer can tolerate the lies of DAP Leaders on the issue. According to him, they met and they did vow. He claimed to be present at the event purportedly at a hotel on MacAlister Road.

Penang Chief Police Officer Dato’ Ayub Yaacob confirmed this Police report. With this expose’ and confession, the Deputy Inspector General of Police Datuk Khaled Abu Bakar said the Police investigation would continue and would now move slightly on a different angle. As the plot thickens, more will be revealed. We would expected Pakatan Rakyat especially DAP would vehemently deny this and charge “He has been bought over by BN”.

Home Minister Dato’ Seri Hishamuddin Hussein said they are more interested in finding the truth for sake of national security and  is very confident that with more time, the Police could solve this case:

Hisham: Give cops time to probe latest report over Utusan article

By SHAUN HO and AUSTIN CAMOENS

KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the police should be allowed time to investigate the latest police report connected to Utusan Malaysia’s report titled Kristian Agama Rasmi?.

The report, which was lodged in Penang Friday, claimed that there was some element of truth to Utusan’s report which was based on two blog postings last weekend.

“Investigations to find out the truth takes time and the media should not inflame the issue.

“There are always two sides to the coin. If we allow ourselves to be consumed by emotion, there will be chaos and we still would not get to the bottom of the issue,” Hishammuddin told reporters after launching a drug rehabilitation and care centre in Chow Kit here Friday.

Police, however, have refused to give details on the content of the report.

Hishammuddin said the police were investigating all parties related to the issue, and not just the bloggers who made the postings and Utusan.

Clearly, DAP Leaders are now caught lying. Jeff Ooi now, who was purpotedly present at the MacAlister Road hotel do,  seems to have lied.

NST reported this four days ago:

Police record Ooi’s statement

Ooi said he gave his statement at 10.30am and also lodged two reports — against Utusan Malaysia and the owner of the blog bigdogdot.com.wordpress.com for unwarranted and unsupported claims on the issue.

GEORGE TOWN: Police yesterday recorded a statement from Jelutong member of parliament Jeff Ooi Chuan Aun over his alleged involvement with a group purportedly trying to make Christianity the country’s official religion.

The Jelutong DAP denied that he had hosted the dinner in a hotel here on Thursday evening and clarified that there was no pledge among those who attended the dinner to have a Christian as the country’s prime minister.

Ooi also demanded that Utusan Malaysia and the blogger offer sincere apologies to all, including the Christian community, within 24 hours.

The National Evangelical Christian Fellowship (NECF), together with partners Global Day of Prayer, Marketplace Penang and Penang Pastors Fellowship, said the claims against their community were lies, and refuted the bloggers’ allegations last night.

“The prayer sessions — one before dinner and one at the end — were a usual part of their (the organisers’) worship, and not a pledge as alleged,” said Ooi, who said he was also lodging the report on behalf of the DAP’s central executive committee. The organisers, in a joint statement yesterday, vehemently denied they had met on Friday to discuss making Christianity the official religion, claiming it to be unfounded and totally untrue.
The organiser of the Unashamedly Ethical marketplace conference is also perturbed by the claims in the blog that a special convention and meeting later that evening in Jalan Khaw Sim Bee was to ponder over having a Christian as Malaysia’s prime minister.

“The so-called special convention was in fact an Unashamedly Ethical marketplace seminar organised to discuss and address the issue of bribery and corruption in the marketplace and Christians’ contribution in addressing such issues. It has nothing to do with political succession.

“While it is true that several Christians and pastors gathered at a hotel in Jalan Macalister for dinner, the gathering was never with the intention to make Christianity the official religion of Malaysia nor was it with a vow to have a Christian prime minister.
“The dinner was held to honour several pastors from Sarawak who were in Penang for the Unashamedly Ethical marketplace conference held on Friday morning.”

Utusan Malaysia carried a front-page article on Saturday headlined Malaysia, Negara Kristian? (Malaysia, a Christian country?) based on postings by several bloggers.

Bigdogdotcom claimed to have received a message that Ooi had organised a dinner for pastors from Sarawak and abroad at Red Rock Hotel in Jalan Macalister.

The blogger called on the authorities to investigate the allegations of sedition, warning that if the authorities failed in their duty, the country might be “shattered again”.

In Kuala Lumpur, the Catholic Church has also refuted claims of a conspiracy to turn the country into a Christian one with a Christian prime minister.

Catholic Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur Tan Sri Murphy Nicholas Pakiam said the meeting that the bloggers and Utusan Malaysia had written about did not take place in a Catholic Church-owned venue.

“It is clear that this reporting is baseless and highly irresponsible as the reporters and editors of the above newspaper have not taken any reasonable steps whatsoever to verify the allegations made by anonymous bloggers.” Pakiam urged the authorities to take action against any individual or group which threatened racial harmony in the country.

“A thorough investigation into the matter should be made to determine the source of these insidious, provocative and malicious lies and take action against those behind it.” Pakiam said the Christian community in Malaysia had never advocated hatred, antagonism or animosity towards any other religion or group and called upon all Malaysians to “pray, hold dialogues and work together to strengthen national unity”.

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

So did Penang Chief Minister and Chinese Chauvinist DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng. It is expected that DAP would now spin this new revelation, which is typically Pakatan Rakyat’s modus operandi whenever they are cornered. Razali’s Police report a week after the event purpotedly happened would be expected high on their list. Probably character assassination and “BN’s ploy to demonise PR Leaders”.

One of Emperor Lim's tweet

Chinese Chauvinist DAP Supremo Lim Kit Siang already got that rolling the past couple of days.

Playing the game of "Offense is the best defense"

To those who missed the plot, think again and please really ponder. Again, this was all about politics. It was and still is about DAP’s politics. Nothing about going against Christianity in Malaysia. The majority Malay Muslim Malaysians accepted and respected the rights of Christians, as long as it does not contravene with the interest of Islam and administration of the religion of the Federation.

As expected, the denial from the Chinese Chauvinists came very quick. The DAP Leader smack in the middle of this Sediton Act Section 4(1) investigation Jelutong MP and former blogger Jeff Ooi  tried to rationalise with “Probably forced to…”:

Kristian-Islam: Razali mungkin ‘dipaksa’, kata DAP

Oleh Syed Mu’az Syed Putra

KUALA LUMPUR, 14 Mei — DAP percaya ahli parti itu, Mohamed Razali Abdul Rahman kemungkinan besar telah “dipaksa” untuk membuat laporan polis — yang semalam PDRM menyifatkan ada “variasi” berbanding laporan sebelum ini berhubung konspirasi yang didakwa membincangkan agenda menjadikan Kristian agama rasmi negara.

Ahli Parlimen Jelutong Jeff Ooi (gambar) menegaskan kemungkinan Razali, ahli jawatankuasa DAP cawangan Bukit Tumba telah dipujuk oleh saudaranya yang bekerja sebagai seorang polis cawangan khas yang lazimnya memantau kegiatan politik di Jelutong.

“Kami diberitahu Mohamed Razali ada pertalian keluarga dengan seorang anggota polis dan anggota itu yang dikatakan berperanan membantu Utusan Malaysia mendapatkan berita itu.

“Saya harap polis juga boleh mula siasat dari sudut ini dan adil serta bebas dalam siasatan kes berkenaan,” kata beliau pada sidang media di sini hari ini.

“Kami berharap Mohamed Razali mengulangi apa yang dilaporkannya kepada polis supaya kami boleh mengambl tindakan undang-undang jika kenyataannya mengancam kedudukan DAP dan masyarakat Kristian,” katanya lagi.

Jelas beliau, Razali yang setia kepada parti itu tidak akan melakukan perkara yang boleh menjejaskan parti.

Tambah Ooi, beliau turut terkejut dengan tindakan Razali selepas masing-masing sebelum ini membantah laporan tindakan Utusan Malaysia itu.

“Sebelum ini dia membantah laporan Utusan Malaysia tetapi secara tiba-tiba dia membuat laporan polis.

“Malah sebelum ini Mohamad Razali yang meminta saya untuk buat laporan polis tapi sekarang selepas seminggu dia pula yang buat laporan polis,” katanya lagi.

“Saya agak sedih dan terkejut, mungkin dia dipaksa tapi saya tidak tahu… sebab itu kita mahukan penjelasan itu,” katanya.

“Kita tidak tahu motif atau niatnya membuat laporan polis lima hari setelah kami membuat laporan polis menafikan dakwaan yang dibuat di Utusan… (yang) juga diiringi oleh Mohamed Razali,” tambah Ooi, yang telah membuat laporan polis sehari selepas Utusan Malaysiabertarikh 7 Mei lalu mendakwa wujudnya perbincangan itu.

Utusan Malaysia juga mendakwa ada konspirasi mahu menjadikan Kristian sebagai agama rasmi, usaha didakwa disokong oleh pemimpin-pemimpin DAP.

Bagaimanapun kumpulan Kristian dan DAP menafikan dengan keras dakwaan itu sambil menyifatkan laporan Utusan Malaysia itu “pembohongan yang merbahaya.”

Semalam, Timbalan Ketua Polis Negara Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar mengesahkan kandungan laporan polis yang dibuat oleh pihak tertentu di Pulau Pinang berhubung usaha menjadikan Kristian sebagai agama rasmi adalah “variasi lain” dari laporan sebelum ini.

Bagaimanapun Khalid enggan mendedahkan kandungan laporan tersebut dan identiti pengadu yang membuat laporan.

Pagi semalam, Razali membuat laporan polis Balai Polis Jalan Patani, Pulau Pinang berhubung pertemuan itu itu.

Razali mengakui dia ada pada pertemuan itu yang diadakan di sebuah hotel di Jalan Macalister.

Dia bagaimanapun tidak mendedahkan kandungan laporan itu kepada media.

Is this what the best that DAP could come up with, “Probably he was forced to make the Police report”?
