“Nik Aziz pun tarak faham Islam sekarang”

“Tok Guru Nik Aziz pun tarak faham Islam sekarang. Ustaz Hj Hadi Awang pun dah tatau. Dia ikut saja”. That is what Opposition Leader and Ketua Umum PKR Anwar Ibrahim said to Sabah Chinese community a few days ago.

The full story is here.

Anwar, being his usual self, would say different things to different sets of people. As long as he can continue to mesmerize them at that moment of time to support him, even with the means via deception or back-stabbing his own political coalition partners.

The most controversial issue at play is the ‘Kalimah Allah’, especially in literature such as Malay bibles. PAS as coalition partners to PKR and DAP said it is unacceptable. It is a real slap in the Oppositions’ face, on top of other fundamental issues such as sale of alcohol near the mosque in a Malay centric suburban, prosetylisation of Muslims, PAS’s need to reinvigorate Hudud and the more recent ‘Unisex saloon’ and ‘Khalwat’, both in Kelantan and being imposed against the Chinese.

All of these are biting back hard at the Opposition and a clear demonstration that they cannot agree even on fundamental issues. And as the 13GE is very much round the corner, Anwar who is the only element that gels the highly fragmented PKR together and DAP and PKR are able to sit as partners in a coalition, had to resort to his usual lies, twisting of facts, manipulation of sentiments and playing with emotions.

More now than ever.

People like this shouldn’t be trusted for anything and everything. They are not just untrustworthy. They will stab you in the back whenever you turn the other way, for the pettiest short term gains. And they will sell even their own mothers for a whiff of political pleasure.

DAP supporting PAS on ‘Valentines Day’ ban?

A 18 year old woman was found dead on the floor of the ground in Berjaya Times Square huge atrium, after a fall from one of the upper floors. It is unclear whether she jumped or being pushed of the balcony. However, witnesses said there was an argument heard.

We are waiting for DAP Leaders to be their usual self and start to blame authorities be it the Police, MACC, Royal Customs or even PTPTN for this sudden death. Just like in the case of Teoh Being Hock. They exploited the sudden death just hours after the aide to Selangor Exco Ean Yong Hian Wah was found dead.

In the classic case of ‘Nude Ear-squat in the Police Lockup’, MP for Seputeh and DAP Publicity Secretary Teressa Kok even blame the Police for mishandling a Chinese national. That stirred a lot of attention and even controversy.

It turned not  only she is not from China, she is not even Chinese ethnic. It was one of PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s memorable diplomatic blunder.

The Chinese Chauvinists in DAP has never been fair when it comes to the death of Chinese. They are quick to exploit and manipulate the situation especially in the confusion of a situation which needed a further detailed investigation.

This is part of the Opposition’s ‘Politics of Hatred’ strategy.

What is interesting to ponder, is this death related to a ‘crime of passion’. Considering that today is the global dedicated celebration of lovers and lovebirds. Did the young lady argued with her boyfriend, just before she was found dead? Did that lead to an accident or even a compulsive suicide?

It is, then DAP should be supporting PAS’ intention to ban the celebration of ‘Valentine’s Day’. That is consistent in the espirit d’corp. After all after DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng’s call for Federal Government’s allowance for  ‘Kalimah Allah’ in Malay bibles which did not augur well amongst PAS members, they need to show comradeship.

DAP should exploit this circumstance of grievance. Distastefulness has never not been one of their leaders’  disgusting traits.

In our books, 14 February is not a celebration of lovers. It is a day to remember the seven Malay officers and 146 men of 1st Malay Brigade who gave the ultimate sacrifice at Point 226 of the Pasir Panjang Defense Line on the Kent Ridge, Singapore, commonly known as Bukit Chandu.

These untested warriors stood and held on the line. They have shown unsurpassed loyalty to undertake instructions and demonstrated outstanding fighting capabilities within three days of battles. The British High Command described them as ‘uncommon valours’. Theee Federated Malay Regiment warriors sacredly upheld their motto ‘Taat Setia’

They upheld to the letter of the legacy that the Malays are great and extraordinary brave warriors and very loyal to their leaders.

Today, we remember them. Malaysians should remember these men who started as members of experimental platoon in 1933 were formed into 1st Federated Malay Regiment in November 1938 and 2nd Federated Malay Regiment formed in March 1941, are now being represented by 25 different battalions of the Royal Malay Regiment.

Doa for uncommon valours of 1 and 2nd Federated Malay Regt: (dari kiri) Brig Gen Rahim, Jen PAT Tan Sri Zulkifli Zain, Defence Minister Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Deputy Defence Minister Dato’ Dr Latif Ahmad and President of RAMD Club  Col (Rtd) Malik Alwi

Last year, Defence Minister Dato’ Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi made a historic visit to Bukit Chandu Memorial on the 70th anniversary of the battle. We at  BigDogDotCom reiterated our suggestion that Port Dickson be re-named Pengkalan Adnan, the leader of the bravest Royal Malay Regiment combat unit, as the nation’s validation to the contribution of the men and women of the Malaysian Armed Forces. On 1 March, the Army celebrate its 80th anniversary.

His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong Tuanku Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Ibni Sultan Badlishah as Sultan Kedah is the Royal Malay Regiment’s Colonel-in-Chief.

A special tahlil would be held this evening at the mosque in Wardieburn Camp, Jalan Genting-Klang, Setapak. May Allah s.w.t. bless all the fallen uncommon valours, from this day 71 years ago and throughout all armed conflict and other engagements members of the ATM have committed themselves in upholding the principles on behalf of the nation.
