Antara Bulan dan Bintang- dimana itu Melayu?



Saya belum mahu bercakap dan beri komen mengenai pengistiharan bulan dan bintang Najib lagi. Kerana saya boleh dan mampu melakukan demikian. Saya mengalu-ngalukan orang lain menulis pendapat mereka dalam satu extended article dan berhentilah mendapat kemasyuran 5 minit dengan menghantar surat kepada editor atau membuat laporan polis.
Langkah seperti ini tidak langsung mengurangkan kegigihan menulis untuk menyampaikan pandangan kepada pembaca.
Dan saya jadikan bisnes saya memberi komen dan pandangan untuk memusnahkan omongan Najib. Bukanlah saya rasa saya sahaja yang layak berbuat demikian- ianya kerana saya boleh dan mampu. Tidak ada yang menyekat orang lain dari melakukan perkara yang serupa. 
Saya hairan ada orang menyifatkan Najib diluar boleh dikomen.Berulang kali saya katakan- jika Najib boleh jadi PM, sesiapa sahaja pun boleh.
Memanglah misi pembangkang dan saya ialah menyingkir kerajaan Najib dari kuasa. Sebab kita ada satu kepercayaan- Kita percaya dan yakin kita boleh lakukan lebih baik dari kerajaan UMNO. Semudah ini titik tolak kita.
Misi kerajaan pula ialah memburukkan pembangkang. lakukan dengan gentlemen tanpa menggunakan tektik kotor dan tektik intimidasi dan menggunakan the legitimate forces of coercion.
Tujuan kita ialah overthrow kerajaan Najib. Hanya cara kita lakukan ialah cara demokratik melalui peti undi. Siapa yang dapat yakinkan rakyat, dialah yang menang. Fakta nya, dalam pru13, lebih ramai yang sokong kita dari sokong BN.
Perkara inilah yang tidak dapat diterima oleh UMNO. Sebab itu mereka naik sasau dan bertindak balas dengan melakukan segala bentuk kezaliman dan penganiayaan keatas pembangkang. Mereka pihak yang takut dengan kebangkitan rakyat yang enggan diperbodohkan.
Berapa kali sudah saya nyatakan- saya sendiri tahu dan sedar bukan semua pandangan dan pendapat saya mantap dan benar; tapi saya menulis dengan penhujjahan. Orang yang tidak setuju dengan saya tidak pun mengukuhkan cause mereka jika hanya membantah dengan respons sebaris/oneliner responses. Apatah lagi jika buat serangan peribadi. 
Jika ada penghujjahan dari mereka yang membantah- akhirnya, it comes to the point where pembaca menimbang mana satu pandangan yang mempunyai higher  level of believability.
Saya akan resev satu masa lain untuk beri komen keatas goga dan gegak gempita Najib berkata mengenai darah Melayu yang mengalir dari tubuh nya. Cukup dengan saya mengatakan awal ini, cukup lah kelentongkan rakyat. 

Antara bulan dan bintang, bagaimana kedudukan bangsa Melayu? 

Setiap kali saya round kampung2 Melayu dalam daerah Raub, saya akan menemui cerita sedih. Dari Ulu Semantan, Gesing, Cheroh, Ulu Lepar, Batu Malim, Ulu Sungai, Ulu dong, Pamah Rawas, Pamah Kulat, Tanjung Putus, Ulu Lepar, Gali, Sega, Ulu Atok, Kuala Atok, Chenua, masaalah nya sama- janji kerajaan dan nikmat sorga loka hasil pemerintahan kerajaan Melayu tidak kesampaian.
Ini bukan kerajaan bukan Melayu- ini kerajaan Melayu, kulit sawo matang, beragama Islam. Pengalaman saya satu penggal bersama kerajaan menyedarkan saya bahawa segala peruntukan yang diterjemahkan dalam bentuk projek dan program- semua nya 100% akan dicukai sebahagian nya oleh pembuat polisi dan pelaksana projek dan program. Itulah punca asas sekali mengapa polisi memajukan Melayu gagal.
Lihatlah apa yang berlaku. Penghuni di dua buah pusat serenti dadah di Raub semua nya Melayu. PPRT semua oang Melayu. Apa yang berlaku di Raub belaku serupa dalam daerah dan negeri lain. Rumah PPRT semua penghuni dan pemohon nya Melayu. Setiap tahun , pejabat daerah mampu buat 200 unit, pemohon nya- semua Melayu ada 10,000.
Yang bangsat dan papa kedana dan haram jadah- ini istilah2 yang sering kali Najib guna( petanda darah Melayu mengalir dalam tubh nya) ialah orang Melayu.
Yang memerintah selama ini, siapa kalau bukan bangsa Melayu? Jawablah dengan jujur.
Sudah lah Melayu- UMNO pula- parti dulu, kini dan selama nya berjuang untuk PUTERA dari istilah keramat BUMIputera itu. Putera didahulukan, bumi dikemudiankan!
Orang Melayu kena sedar bahawa kepentingan yang UMNO perjuangkan ialah kumpulan Melayu yang terpilih. Itu sebabnya, semenjak tahun 1955 bila UMNO mula memerintah, kepentingan Melayu biasa sentiasa terkebelakang.
Pendapatan kasar purata isi rumah per bulan kumpulan 40% terbawah Melayu , mengikut angka rasmi kerajaan ialah RM1686 sebulan. Kos selia rambut Rosmah Mansor sekali buat ialah RM1200. Tentu bukan sekali. Kalau seminggu sekali , jumlah nya 4 kali. Jadi kos nya RM4800 sebulan.
Pendapatan golongan Melayu kumpulan B40? RM 1686. Ertinya, pendapatan purata bulanan isi rumah dalam kumpulan B40, lebih rendah dari kos nilai selia rambut Rosmah Mansor per bulan!
Silalah datang dan tanya, peniaga pasar minggu bandar Raub- adakah yang pendapatan mereka RM4800 sebulan. Dan Rosmah Mansor kata dia suri rumah tangga. Yang dia lupa kata ialah dia suri rumah tangga kumpulan 1% teratas.
Tidak berapa lama dahulu, kapal terbang rasmi kerajaan hilang sekejap sehingga Najib terpaksa pulang melawat orang banjir dengan kapal terbang lain. Kapal terbang kerajaan itu telah di guna pakai oleh isteri PM yang tidak ada peranan rasmi dalam system berkerajaan.
Tapi oleh sebab Rosmah itu Melayu dan Najib itu Melayu- dan UMNO pulak- kesalahan2 ini ditutup sebelah mata. Tak mengapa- mereka Melayu. Ertnya, oleh kerana pesalah itu melayu, UMNO lagi, kesalahan itu bisa dimaafkan. Ekstensi dari ini- tidak lama lagi, jika gerombolan UMNO masuk dalam rumah kita, meniduri isteri, isteri2 dan anak perempuan kita- orang pro UMNO akan kata- tak mengapa-mereka itu melayu dan UMNO lagi.
Inilah realiti nya.
Yang memohon tapak buat rumah dan memohon tanah tak dapat2 sejak 40 tahun, dalam daerah Raub ialah Melayu. Tak kiralah jika Melayu itu datang dari Terenganu atau Kelantan atau negeri lain- mereka tetap Melayu. Orang Cina yang asalnya datang dari negeri China mudah pulak kita berikan tanah. Yang memberi itu DO nya, SO nya, pegawainya Melayu.
Apalah kita nak herankan sangat mengenai himpunan Melayu yang bersorak dan gegak gempita berteriak bila Najib dengan air liur meleleh bercakap mengenai bangsa Melayu. Mereka didatangkan dengan bas dan segala macam kenderaaan, dibayar dan diupah. Yang datang pun entahkan pegawai2 kerajaan yang diberi amaran kalau tak datang diambil tindakan disiplin, penuntut IPTA dan KOlej kerajaan, dan seterusnya.
Kita jangan lupa, UMNO dan BN hanya dapat 47% undi popular. Kita jangan lupa pula lebih ramai orang Melayu sokong Pakatan dari sokong BN dan UMNO. Jadi biarlah mereka nak jerit, nak hunus keris atau apa- fakta nya, mereka hanya dapat 47% undi popular.
Kita perlu ingat, UMNO dapat 3.2 juta undi dalam PRU13. Dan bukan semua undi ini orang Melayu. Kalau semua Melayupun, ianya sama dengan jumlah ahli UMNO. Itu pun jika semua ahli UMNO memilih calun UMNO yang semestinya Melayu.
Jumlah orang Melayu yang keluar mengundi daripada 11 juta itu dianggar 60%. Ini sama dengan 6.6 juta. Kalaulah jumlah orang Melayu yang undi UMNO itu 3.2 juta, ini bereti 3.4 juta Melayu tak undi UMNO dan BN.
Maka kalau kita tidak tergolong dalam 3.2 juta itu, jangan resah dan gelisah.
Yang bersorak gegak gempita, dalam himpunan itu mewakili bahagian bukan majority orang Melayu.
Majoriti orang Melayu ialah yang berada dalam dalam kumpulan B40 yang mempunyai pendapatan purta isi rumah bulanan sebanyak RM1686.
Ada 16-17 juta orang Melayu di Malaysia ini. Ertinya yang berada dalam B40 ialah 6-7 juta Melayu. 6-7 juta Melayu berada dibawah garis kemiskinan. Tahun ini yang layak terima BR1M ialah 7.2 juta. 90% dari nya orang Melayu. 6.3 juta. Hampir sama dengan kumpulan B40.
Yelah- kita jerit pasal Melayu itu dan ini-seperti saya kata tadi
1.   Hampir 100% pemohon dan penginap PPRT ialah Melayu
2.   90% penerima BR1M ialah Melayu
3.   90% penerima bantuan JKM ialah Melayu
4.   Pemohon tanah tapak rumah- majority nya Melayu.
5.   Peniaga dibawah canopy atau teduhan zinc –majority nya melayu.
Siapa yang memerintah negara ini sejak 1955? UMNO dari perikatan sehingga BN.
PM semua Melayu. Menteri majoriti Melayu. KPN semua Melayu. Ketua tentera Malaysia semua Melayu. Raja- semua Melayu. KSN semua Melayu ( sekarang je mamak). KSU kementerian -99% Melayu. Pengarah jabatan kerajaan- 99% Melayu. SUK negeri- semua Melayu. MB- semua Melayu. Exco- ramai Melayu. DO? Semua Melayu. Ketua2 kerajaan tempatan? Semua Melayu.
Semua level pembuat keputusan ialah Melayu tapi, bangsa Melayu masih terkebelakang.
Dari 10 billionaire di Malaysia- 8 orang Cina, 1 India dan 1 Arab.
Mana Melayu?  Masih terperangkap antara bulan dan bintang.Kalau ada 6-7 bangsa Melayu yang miskin dan ketinggalan- itu petanda hina nya bangsa Melayu. Dan kita tahu siapa yang menyebabkan Melayu jadi begini.

Anwar Hopeful, UMNO Fearful



Anwar Ibrahim and his family are hopeful. They have petitioned the King for clemency.
The King is the fountainhead of justice. He must be free from petty considerations. Such as being reminded that Anwar is not pro King and Monarchy. UMNO leaders in the past have also run down the monarchy.
The UMNO people are fearful. They fear that the King may grant clemency to Anwar. So they have come out with some horrific warnings. A pardon would open the floodgates to many other petitions for pardon.
But the granting of pardon is the prerogative of the King. It’s a privilege enjoyed only by the King and at state level, by the Kings of those states. Saying it’s the prerogative of the King means the King is the reservoir of mercy.
The idea that a King is the reservoir of mercy directs the King to consider all relevant considerations to actually grant mercy. The King must consider all the reasons to grant mercy against the reasons for not granting. It also means the King need not consider the verdict of the Courts. He is independent of them.
The possibility of the King actually granting mercy casts fears deep in the minds of those people who hate Anwar.
But those people pressing for the refusal for pardon are actually saying to the King- don’t mess with the conviction by the court. They are actually saying the King has no power to alter the decision of the courts. I think this is a serious challenge to the prerogatives of the King. These are attacks on the privileges provided for by our constitution to the King.
Let the King decide what is best. By submitting the appeal, Anwar and his family are accepting that his chances of getting a pardon are 50/50. He and the family are also taking risks- if he fails to secure it, it will not be opened for him to say the king is unjust. That would be politically suicidal.
Some people like to show they are more pious and god fearing than others. It is a badge of pomposity and even arrogance. They then start judging others with reference to their own personalised moral standards. They intercede on God’s behalf. We have so many behaving like omniscient moral busybodies.
But probably more people ignore these moral busybodies. The contention of so many people is, Anwar’s punishers have managed to convince only the 5 sitting judges. That is in the legal court.
In the court of public opinion, the verdict is seen as flawed because to them, there are many reasonable doubts.
The UMNO leaders know this. They must break the spirits of the juries in the court of public opinion. That is why, UMNO is not angry that its counsel, Shafee Abdullah is going around doing a roadshow. The government takes us as fools if they say UMNO is not behind the roadshows.
They need a win in the court of public opinion because now, the people will judge them. Judgement by the people to UMNO, which forms the government is far more important than the judgement of 5 robed men in the Palace of Justice.
As to the moral pontiffs, they go around the country, damning Anwar and insisting that he must be punished for the crime for which he has been convicted. And because they intercede on God’s behalf, they precede the Agong by insisting Anwar should not be pardoned.
We don’t know how the King will decide. Or when he will decide.
Anwar’s takes a risk of his plea for mercy being rejected. That indicates Anwar is ready to accept closure on his case- at least until he hopes a new government comes into power. If the plea is rejected, Anwar will remain a guest at Sungai Buloh Hilton for the duration of his sentence.
Oh- Anwar cannot petition the King because Anwar dislikes the monarchy.
It does not matter if Anwar is liked by the monarchs or he on his part likes or dislikes the Monarchy. We know he has crossed swords with some of them during the course of his career. The King as current leader of the Malaysian Monarchs cannot be infected with these subjective feelings. The King is an institution which is impersonal, unmoved by petty considerations. He is the fountainhead of justice. He is positioned thus in our Constitution.
It’s beyond admission of guilt now. You and I may think that way- his plea  is an admission of guilt. As Zaid Ibrahim and others say- this is incorrect thinking and it’s not straight thinking. We are punch-drunk. The government has hit our heads so many times.
Anwar and family believed they have been wronged despite the verdict and is now petitioning the Agong based on the belief he has been wronged. The family has listed down various reasons to support the belief.
The other side are saying that Anwar has done a most heinous of crime such that granting clemency to it, would open the floodgates to every sodomite, fornicator, and paedophiliac lunatics scrambling to gain royal pardon. You can almost feel a blood lust in their insistence.
Well, to these self-appointed omnipotent moral pontiffs- I shall say Anwar isn’t any tom dick and harry. He has become author to this cause celebre for the singular fact that his name is Awnar Ibrahim, de factor leader of PKR, leader of the opposition, former deputy president of UMNO and former deputy minister. It’s because his name is Anwar Ibrahim.
Anwar’s latest action, executed through members of his family has succeeded in eliciting some of the most comical of responses. One person said that if he were the Raja, he will not grant clemency. No one is stopping this chap to declare himself raja- Raja Kapoor, Raja Kelawar or Raja Lekok- the choice is his.
The UMNO man who lost in Batu Pahat shows to all of us especially to UMNO members, why he got on the toes of the Ruler of Johore. The chap said- Arguing that a “sodomite” seeking a royal pardon would set a bad precedent, especially if he is indeed pardoned, Puad added, “After this, every rapist and sodomite will also apply for a pardon.” See his remarks here.
He is preceding the Agong himself. The teaspoon acts bigger than the ladle. The Agong has not even commanded the presence of a pardons board, this chap has issued edicts. Now we know why, the Johore Palace wanted him to be replaced as MP for Batu Pahat.
The man from Tanjung Karang Selangor is his usual combative self-describing Anwar as bacul. That’s equivalent to a spineless coward in English.
I am not going to associate this move as an out of the box thinking by Anwar in prison- he is more concerned about his back pains and mosquitoes. Rather, this move is the result of intense introspection by members of his family to which Anwar despite telling me a month ago, that he doesn’t care, has finally gave in to the persuasions of family members. He would like to enjoy his time as grandfather to his grandchildren.
It’s a straightforward move to secure clemency and pardon from the Agong as the fountainhead of justice. The basis of support from the others outside his immediate family circle, is to insist and maintain Anwar Ibrahim is a prisoner of conscience and that his second round of prosecution, as in the first one- was politically motivated.

Speak Up and Speak Out



An NGO calling itself Pemantau Media Sosial Pasukan Semut Malaysia aka SEMUT has made a police report against an article I wrote recently. The action was reported here and here.
It’s not easy to be an organisation to survey the blogging landscape, reading and identifying articles that offend the political sensibilities of the political masters. Imagine the intellectual and cerebral skills, wisdom, temperament and dexterity required to come to a decision as to which articles and writings are to be hauled up and then, belabour the already stretched and extended resources of our law enforcing agencies.
What else can you describe the action taken by this omnipotent and omniscient NGO- COMMANDING the police to investigate the said article and countless other articles by many others and try to pigeonhole them under various yet-to-be identified headings of legal wrongs?
Awesomely imbecilic.  It’s akin to shoot first, justify later.
It’s tiresome to even narrate it!
My article was said to incite the people to hate the government. The complainants also said I advocated street protests. The complainants asked the police to investigate and analyse the said offending article.
Justeru kami memohon pihak polis menyiasat artikel ini di bawah mana-mana peraturan yang berkenaan selaras dengan kedaulatan undang-undang serta keluhuran perlembagaan demokrasi berparlimen negara di bawah naungan Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong
Fuuh- what a mouthful. Asking the police to investigate the article under any rules and laws. Polis takde kerja lain kah depa ingat. Asyik nak menganalisa blog, tweeter dan facebook.
Lucky I don’t operate tweeter and facebook. Tried tweetering but found it too taxing. Gave it up a long time ago. Facebook?  Gave up also.
I ended the article by saying that once we have federal power we don’t need the King to free Anwar.
The chief complainant, a chap by the name of Zaparudin looks bright enough to understand the article which was written in English. Moreover, if he has gone through our ‘world class’ education system and knows a thing or two, he will also understand what I meant when I said, once we have federal power, we don’t need the King to free Anwar. So I don’t have to explain that to him.
We shan’t even broach the subject of the freedom of speech. We are only exercising our inalienable right to speak out and speak up, offering fair comments on the burning issues of the day. All within the law of course.
Now, if the way we deliver our articulation, offends some GOONS- Guardians Of OUR Nation’s Soul, we are afraid, we can’t offer them our apologies.
