Tan Sri Mohamed Hashim Ahmad Makaruddin,Executive Chairman, Kumpulan Utusan.(corporate@utusan.com.my)

Tan Sri,

I am writing to express my indignation and abhorrence at your story headlined “Takdir Yasmin” on the late Yasmin Ahmad, that your tabloid Kosmo! ran on July 27th, 2009. (I justify my use of the words “you” and “your” by the fact that you are the Executive Chairman of Kumpulan Utusan. The buck stops with you, sir, and nowhere else.)
Irregardless of whether it is based on the truth or not, your article breached not only the journalist’s code of ethics, but standards of human decency as well.
Since a journalist’s first obligation is to seek truth and report it, why do I say that your article breached journalistic ethics? Because even if it is true, it violates another principle that journalists are obliged to uphold:
Ethical journalists treat sources, subjects and colleagues as human beings deserving of respect.
According to this principle, journalists should:
Show compassion for those who may be affected adversely by news coverage. Use special sensitivity when dealing with children and inexperienced sources or subjects.
Be sensitive when seeking or using interviews or photographs of those affected by tragedy or grief.
Recognize that gathering and reporting information may cause harm or discomfort. Pursuit of the news is not a license for arrogance.
Recognize that private people have a greater right to control information about themselves than do public officials and others who seek power, influence or attention. Only an overriding public need can justify intrusion into anyone’s privacy.
Show good taste. Avoid pandering to lurid curiosity.
Be cautious about identifying juvenile suspects or victims of sex crimes.
Be judicious about naming criminal suspects before the formal filing of charges.
Balance a criminal suspect’s fair trial rights with the public’s right to be informed.
(From the Society of Professional JournalistsCode of Ethics)
In the case of your article, you have violated this principle in at least four ways:
You have treated the memory of your subject, a recently deceased person no longer able to tell her side of the story, with disrespect, by making allegations that may (given prevailing societal attitudes, prejudiced though they may be) diminish how she is remembered by Malaysians, and expose her family to odium.
You showed little compassion to her family and scant regard for the potential harm to her aged and frail mother.
You did not demonstrate any overriding public need that could have justified such an intrusion into their grief and privacy.
The mode in which you presented your report suggests that you have pandered to lurid curiosity, perhaps motivated by the desire to sell newspapers.
Whether we like it or not, Tan Sri, all of us will be held to account for everything we write, before the One who reads and edits us all. In the meantime, we are accountable to our readers and to our fellow journalists.
May I co-opt blogger Kama’s words (from here) to express my own view:
“…Yasmin has gone to meet her Maker. Our time will come soon. Seharusnya kita sadaqah Al-fatihah untuk arwah Yasmin and not go into this silly polemic about her gender. May her soul be placed among the blessed. Amin.”
Kosmo! is hardly the only newspaper in your group which regularly breaches journalistic ethics. Your other papers too, frequently have been rightly condemned, for very serious lapses in standards. How could this have happened to the news organisation pioneered by such by such illustrious journalists as Bapa Wartawan Abdul Rahim Kajai, Pak Sako and Pak Samad?
To be fair, Kumpulan Utusan is not the only Malaysian media organisation that behaves without concern for ethics. It’s safe to say that the general level of professionalism and integrity within Malaysian news media is quite low. That, however, is a subject for another letter.
In order to mitigate and make amends for the damage you have done, may I humbly suggest that Kumpulan Utusan does the following:
Apologise unreservedly (and prominently) to the family of the late Yasmin Ahmad. (You have done so today [30/7/09], in the main headline on Kosmo’s front page. Well done sir, it’s the first step)
Devote substantial space in your papers to discussing her work and how her talent and creativity changed Malaysia.
Devote substantial space in your papers to discussing the challenges faced by the transgendered community in Malaysia. Please work with them to dispel the prejudices and social stigma that they live with.
May I also suggest that your organisation commit yourselves demonstrably to upholdoing the basic tenets of good journalism.
If you do make amends, and seek to repair your organisation’s seriously damaged reputation and credibility, may I wish you all the best in your endeavours.
Sincerely,Malaysian Heart(A Malaysian blogger)

The MACC itself is directly responsible to Najib, the current prime minister and Umno president. Warfare is already out in the open.

By Wong Choon Mei, Suara Keadilan

In a clear sign that he has not learnt his lesson, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Ahmad Said Hamdan defended his commission’s practice of prolonged interrogation, even into the wee hours of the morning.
At no time did he show any remorse that such practice could have resulted in the untimely death of Selangor political officer Teoh Beng Hock, although the entire nation has been in an uproar over it.
Perhaps this is because the MACC chief is feeling secure that come what may, he and his agency will be protected by the man they answer directly to – prime minister of the day and Umno president Najib Razak.
“It is not by choice that we choose to stay on until the wee hours of the morning to record statements from witnesses and suspects,” Ahmad was reported as saying on Sunday.
“But in certain cases we need to act fast to check attempts to wipe out evidence and tracks.”
He was responding to the storm of criticism over the MACC’s interrogation techniques that have been widely blamed for causing Teoh’s death.
Beng Hock, an aide to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong, was taken in for questioning on July 15 at 5pm and according to the MACC, he was released at 3.45am on July 16.
Prolonged hours of interrogation by any standards, especially since Beng Hock was being questioned as a witness and not a suspect into alleged misuse of funds by several Selangor Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen, including Ean.
Sadly though, the 30-year never got to leave the MACC 14th floor office alive again. His body was found sprawled on the 5th floor podium of an adjoining building at 1.30pm.
But rubbing salt to the wound, Ahmad defiantly said the lead investigator of the probe was reassigned not because of Beng Hock’s death but because of death threats to himself.
“As there was a threat on his life, we took him off the case and reassigned him elsewhere. We are doing this for his own security,” Ahmad said. The MACC itself too has received several threats demanding it stopped the probe, he added.
Revealed – the grand Umno plot
It is clear Ahmad knows which side his bread is buttered.
This is not the first time and it will definitely not be last – unless he is removed – that he has deliberately forsaken the ethical just to stand on the side of his political masters – the Umno top brass.
The MACC itself is directly responsible to Najib, the current prime minister and Umno president. Warfare is already out in the open.
Selangor Umno – which Najib also heads – has declared an all-out assault on the Pakatan state government.
It plans to topple Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim through all ways and means, including using all the tools of the federal machinery at its disposal.
And thanks to Najib’s control of the federal government, these include the MACC, the police and even the courts.
The grand plot revealed in a black blog “Truth for Beng Hock” was to begin by targeting seven Chinese assemblymen in Selangor Pakatan by accusing them of working hand-in-glove with the Chinese triads and underworld.
Pressure would be piled on the aides, associates and even the peers of these assemblymen. They would be coerced until breaking point and perhaps even bribed to turn against the seven.
Kajang municipal councillor Tan Boon Wah – interrogated around the same time as Beng Hock – has already lodged a police and filed a law suit against the MACC. Tan has accused the agency of using illegal means to detain and force false confessions from him to implicate Ean.
As it stands, Pakatan leaders have made no bones about being harassed by the MACC. For weeks, they have openly condemned the agency for discrimination and when its actions finally resulted in Beng Hock’s death, there were numerous calls for it to immediately stop.
These calls came not just from the Pakatan but all-round from civil society and the Malaysian public. And the calls were not aimed at stopping the probe but getting the MACC to come clean on what it was trying to do with its mysterious and and eventually fatal fishing expedition.
The MACC has wide powers. But it cannot simply detain, it cannot simply interrogate, it cannot simply accuse without properly stating why.
And this why Najib must heed the growing calls from Malaysians to hold a Royal Commission of Inquiry into Beng Hock’s suspicious death. He should not be allowed to get away with an RCI that only looks into the interrogative methods of the MACC.
There is no reason at all for Najib not to empower the RCI to investigate Beng Hock’s death. There is no reason at all to hold a separate inquest UNLESS Najib has reason to do some covering up of his own.
It is time for the nation ask the PM, does he?

Both Prime Minister Najib Razak and Attorney General (AG) Gani Patail have flopped miserably to justify the unjustifiable – the irrational and untenable decision to have both a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) and an inquest to deal with the boiling controversy of Teoh Beng Huat’s tragic death under custody of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.
In an immediate response to nation-wide protests against the government’s decision to allow the RCI to deal with only procedural matters while leaving the all important issue of cause of death to an inquest in a magistrate court, Najib said:
“We must adhere to the laws of the country. Please don’t take (political) advantage of the case. Our intention is to find out the truth”.Sensing his statement sounded somewhat hollow, he quickly added that the Attorney General will issue a statement to explain the details.
But the Attorney General statement sounded even more hollow. His statement is a blatant attempt to mislead by deliberate omission of the relevant section of the law.
Citing section 2 of the Commissions of Enquiry Act 1950, Gani said it made clear reference to the inquiry into the conduct and management of the government officers and departments for the public welfare. He said welfare matters relate to the well being of society and “cannot be overstretched to cover an inquiry into the death of this nature.”
In this statement, Gani made two assertions. First, the Act covers only government departments and officers. Second, his definition of “public welfare” excludes inquisition of death.
On Gani’s first point. Under the same section quoted by Gani – section 2 of the Act – it is expressly stated under item (d) that the Commission is empowered to inquire into “any other matter in which an inquiry would, in the opinion of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, be for the public welfare, ….”. So, Gani’s assertion is directly contradicted by item (d). He is therefore guilty of a deliberate attempt to mislead the nation, as he cannot possibly be ignorant of this elementary and fundamental provision of the Act, being the highest legal adviser to the government.
On the second point. Gani’s narrow interpretation of the phrase “for the public welfare” is laughable. When the nation has been so incensed by the heinous injustice of this tragedy that it is almost on the point of revolt, appointing an RCI to probe into this death is not only legally and politically appropriate but the very minimum the government must do if it still wants to retain a remote semblance of rule of law in this country. And yet, our attorney general is telling us that making such a move is incompatible with “public welfare.” Then what will constitute “public welfare”? Waiting for violence to erupt in the streets – knowing fully well that public confidence in the existing law enforcement bodies including the courts is already non-existent?
Even when an RCI is commissioned to probe into the death, there is no assurance of justice done, judging from the government’s habit of ignoring recommendations of RCIs in recent times; but at least it will calm the highly strung nerves of the nation by showing that the government is finally taking steps in the right direction. And I can’t imagine any decent person will dispute by saying that taking such a course does not fulfil national interests as implied by Gani’s narrow interpretation.
Much has been written and expressed by respectable legal minds, political parties and civil society leaders that the present set up of an RCI cum inquest to divide the task of resolving the present crisis is legally and technically untenable and morally unacceptable, and I will not elaborate further in this direction.
Suffice to say that Najib must decide, and decide now, which course he wants to take. To salvage the image of the nation and redeem himself from a scandal-ridden past by appointing an honourably constituted RCI with proper terms of reference to take on the crisis, or relegate the task to a magistrate hamstrung by prosecutors and police, all of whom are deeply mistrusted by the public.

If fair-minded Malaysians wondered if perhaps there was too much finger-pointing in the suspicious death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock, they need only look at the Royal Commission of Inquiry proposed by Prime Minister Najib Razak for a good and telling answer.
It was nothing short of daylight robbery – of the country’s intelligence.
And indeed, there has not been enough finger-pointing, not by a fair bit. Another long and arduous struggle has only just begun.
If Malaysians wondered if critics have been too harsh in castigating Najib for being high on packaging and low on substance and performance, then again his latest sham solution for Beng Hock’s family should provide the answer.
When Malaysians called for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into what caused his death, Najib magnanimously agreed to one. But with the catch – his RCI will not inquire into what caused Beng Hock’s death.
Then what is this RCI for, what will it do? Well, Najib’s RCI will perform the rather secondary task of reviewing the MACC’s investigative procedures to determine if there were any human rights violations during Beng Hock’s interrogation.
This could include questions as inane as, did they feed him, give water, allowed him to use the toilets, etc. All important in their own right no doubt. But not vital as in - HOW DID HE DIE?
Then who will investigate what caused Beng Hock to fall nine floors to his death – from the 14th floor MACC office to the the 5th floor roof of the adjoining building?
An inquest will.
An inquest conducted by a magistrate – a member of one of Najib’s famed federal institutions – the judiciary. Yes, the judiciary as associated with the Lingam Tape, judge-fixing, Mahathir Mohamad, the extraordinary judgments in the Perak crisis, the Sujatha-Vell Paari paraquat-drinking inquest, the Altantuya-Razak Baginda C4 explosives trial.
Can Beng Hock and his family expect the same standard of impartiality and justice? Well, Najib says he will speak to Beng Hock’s parents personally.
The mind-blowing treachery
Against this sort of bare-faced hypocrisy rivaling even the thickness of China’s great wall, is it any wonder then that the police decided to spring a quick one of their own.
Quick to learn from their head honcho, they charmed Beng Hock’s family with outward shows of courtesy during questioning at the Kajang police station.
Yet in the same breath, they displayed the greatest treachery possible. They actually had the temerity to ask his father, siblings and fiancee questions aimed at whitewashing the blame from their sister agency – the MACC – and throwing it back on Beng Hock!
Said Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng, one of the lawyers representing the family: “It is clear from the line of questioning that the police were trying to ascertain Teoh’s state of mind in the days leading up to the time he died. Their aim was to absolve the MACC officers’ from liability.
“But I think he contacted no one immediately before the incident because the fiancee, being the closest person to Teoh, said that she received no phone calls from him.
“The police also wanted to question more family members but after we protested, they stuck to the original four they had summoned.”
Said Eric Tan, another of the family’s lawyers: “For example, they asked about Teoh’s characters, or if he was suicidal or had complained about work before he died in trying to make a connection with his work and the possibility that he may taken his own life as a result.
“The police also asked if Teoh was a smoker perhaps insinuating that he might have gone to a window to smoke and then fell off.”
But what goes around comes around. And the most interesting revelation to surface during questioning unwittingly came from the police. They told his fiancee that his shoes were torn when his body was found.
Now how could that have happened? As one sharp commentator has pointed out, the seat of his pants were also badly torn. Would the inquest which begins next week be able to find out why?
Lastly, like lamb led to slaughter, Beng Hock’s family was asked by the press if they appreciated Najib’s RCI. They actually replied in the positive. But that was before they found out about Najib’s sleight of hand.
It remains to be seen if they will still be as satisfied once they find out that an inquest will investigate what caused their son/brother/fiancé to die.
And not an independent and eminent panel of royal commissioners as they and the rest of Malaysia were given to think.

Oleh Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin

Beberapa hari lepas saya menerima sms seawal 3 pagi daripada seorang artis terkenal negara. Barangkali beliau tidak menyemak waktu di UK semasa menghantar sms berkenaan. Cuma di UK ketika ini siangnya memang awal. Waktu solat Subuh pun masuk seawal 3 pagi. Kali ini mesej artis ini agak keras, meminta saya menggesa orang politik supaya membantah Kerajaan China mengenai pergeseran etnik yang membawa pembunuhan beramai-ramai umat di Wilayah Urumqi. Ribuan lain yang ditangkap.

Saya yang belum sempat membeli akhbar dan mendengar BBC hari berkenaan hanya dapat mengagak berita yang dimaksudkan. Saya menghantar ucapan terima kasih atas semangatnya yang bagi saya lebih baik daripada sebahagian orang politik dan orang Islam yang lain yang langsung tidak mengambil pusing apa yang berlaku kepada saudara muslimnya. Di sebalik watak seramnya, atau ‘ikan lagenda’ yang dilakonkannya, ada juga kesedaran dan simpati yang tinggi terhadap umat Islam, atau ‘hak kemanusiaan’ yang berlaku di sana-sini.

Seperti biasa seawal pagi, apabila buka sahaja kedai di Pekan Lampeter yang penuh damai dan indah ini, saya akan keluar membeli akhbar dan mencari berita-berita penting. Ternyata seperti biasa, di Barat ini jika yang menjadi mangsa itu umat Islam beritanya tidak sebesar mana.

Di samping sesetengah akhbar menyulami berita tersebut dengan menyatakan bahawa penunjuk perasaan menjadi mangsa seperti di Iran. Mereka cuba meringankan berita berkenaan, tiada istilah terrorist, tiada istilah extremist yang ditempelkan. Bahkan berita pembunuhan wanita muslimah Mesir di Germany disebabkan tudung yang dipakainya, langsung tidak saya temui. Mungkin ada di celahan berita-berita yang kecil. Itulah media apabila berada di tangan mereka yang tidak adil.

Wilayah Urumqi yang bergolak itu pernah saya lawati pada tahun 2007 bersama dengan rombongan Kerajaan Perlis ketika saya menjadi Mufti Perlis. Memang wilayah itu dipenuhi oleh umat Islam dan ada masjid yang agak besar di tengah kotanya. Bahasa mereka pun agak asing dan mereka juga mengguna huruf Arab dalam tulisan mereka. Ini saya perhatikan ketika menonton televisyen mereka.

Gambar hiasan
Salah seorang yang membawa kami ketika itu menceritakan kezaliman dan penindasan terhadap umat Islam di wilayah tersebut. Demikian juga apa yang diceritakan oleh ‘orang-orang masjid’ yang kami lawati. Masjid diganggu, orang Islam ditangkap dan dibunuh bukan cerita baru.
Gambar hiasan

Saya masih terbayang sebuah masjid yang amat usang di satu perkampungan kuno yang kami lawati. Terasa sunyi dan tenang namun terbiar di cerok yang sunyi. Ada masjid yang kami pergi untuk solat Jumaat, Masya Allah guru yang membaca kitab hadis hari itu begitu lancar dan tepat menyebut nama para perawi dalam sanad-sanad hadis. Namun sudah tua. Kebanyakan yang memenuhi masjid, sudah lanjut usia mereka. Saya yang ketika itu berada di hadapannya termenung mengkagumi kegigihannya menyampaikan Islam dalam keadaan yang bahaya dan sukar, dan terfikir bagaimanakah pula nanti nasib masa depan generasi muslim di wilayah berkenaan.

Perasaan sedih dan hiba mengenangkan kesenangan yang kita kecapi dibandingkan kesukaran mereka untuk hidup sebagai ‘seorang muslim’. Saya mengabadikan perasaan itu dalam sebuah puisi ‘Islam China Yang Hampir Dilupa’ yang akhirnya diambil dan dijadikan lirik lagu. Saya tidak pasti apakah ia termasuk lagu yang di’gam’ atau tidak oleh RTM. Saya pun sudah lama tidak sempat mengikuti perkembangan itu. Lirik terakhir yang saya ingat diminta oleh Mawi bertajuk ‘Sahabat Sejati’, saya rasa itu tidak di‘gam’.

Berbalik kepada nasib umat Islam di Urumqi dan juga di tempat lain. Perasaan persaudaraan Islam kita tidak memenuhi apa yang disebut oleh Rasulullah s.a.w:
“Bandingan orang-orang mukmin dalam kasih-sayang, kesian dan simpati sama seperti satu jasad. Apabila satu anggota merasa sakit, maka seluruh angota lain turut berjaga malam dan demam” (Riwayat Muslim).

Ada beberapa tahap umat Islam dalam hal ini. Ada yang benar-benar bersemangat dan cuba melakukan apa yang termampu. Ada yang sekadar, marah atau geram ketika mendengar berita, kemudian lupa atau dilupakan oleh urusan dunianya. Ada yang langsung tidak ambil tahu apa yang berlaku. Lebih buruk lagi, ada yang tahu tetapi menganggap itu tiada kena mengena dengannya.

Sebenarnya, seperti yang dikatakan oleh artis berkenaan, orang politiklah yang paling berkesan untuk membantah. Pemimpin-pemimpin negara Islam mesti menyatakan bantahan dan pendirian yang tegas mengenai nasib saudara-saudara muslim kita. Janganlah memikirkan soal kepentingan ‘kebendaan’ sahaja dalam arena politik, fikirlah tentang tanggungjawab seorang individu muslim untuk bertindak dengan kadar kemampuannya dan perkara ini akan disoal oleh Allah di akhirat nanti.

Apakah kerana China sedang menjelma sebagai ‘kuasa ekonomi dunia’ maka dia boleh buat apa sahaja terhadap orang muslim dan kemanusiaan? Malanglah, jika para pejuang hak asasi manusia dari negara-negara yang bukan Islam, lebih lantang daripada kita. Hari ini, barangkali semua parti politik melayu berkerjasama dengan kaum-kaum lain, maka tidak ramai yang berani memberikan kritikan lantang lagi. Jika ada pun, bersulam berlapik sehingga menjadi ‘ceroi’. Padahal, tiada kaitan antara kekejaman Kerajaan China dan etnik cina di Malaysia. Orang cina Malaysia adalah rakyat Malaysia. Ketaatan dan kesetiaan mereka kepada negara ini. Tiada kaitan antara mereka dan Kerajaan China untuk mereka merasa sensitif.

Ya, kalau Hindraf memang membawa isunya ke India. Hindraf juga membentang isunya di House of Lords, UK tentang kezaliman pentadbiran orang Islam di Malaysia terhadap penganut hindu. Malaysia digambarkan seakan cuba melakukan ‘pembersihan etnik’. Apa yang digambarkan berlebih-lebihan. Sedihnya, ada pula orang Islam yang sokong. Begitulah isu itu sampai ke Negara India. Saya tidak tahu, apakah Negara India layak untuk bercakap tentang keadilan terhadap penganut-penganut agama jika dilihat apa yang mereka lakukan terhadap umat Islam di sana.

Tahun 2002, di Gujerat ribuan umat Islam dibunuh, dibakar hidup-hidup, dirogol dan berbagai perbuatan yang begitu kejam dari segi kemanusiaan. Laporan rasmi tempatan India dan antarabangsa mendakwa sebahagiannya dilakukan di bawah penyeliaan Polis India. Ada gerakan di India yang kerjanya memburu orang Islam. Mereka bebas di India, dan Amerika tidak pula menyenaraikan mereka sebagai terrorist.
Gambar hiasan
Dr Zakir Naik juga pernah berpidato panjang tentang hal ini dalam ceramahnya ‘Is Terrorism A Muslim Monopoly’ yang tersebar luas. Akhbar Daily Mail UK (8 Julai 2009) melaporkan penyeksaan terhadap tahanan rakyat British yang berketurunan Pakistan. Kuku-kukunya dicabut, dan dia serta muslim yang lain diseksa kejam dengan kerjasama antara Polis British dan Pakistan.

Gambar hiasan
Ini di sebuah negara yang sering bercakap tentang hak dan kebebasan, walaupun soal racialism atau perkauman itu tidak dibenarkan, namun dari segi perlaksanaanya ia berlaku. Lihat pula di Selatan Thai, di Burma, di Philipina dan berbagai lagi. Kemudian, bandingkan ini semua dengan sikap orang Islam tehadap bukan Islam di negara-negara yang majoritinya umat Islam? Walaupun ada kelemahan di sana-sini, namun secara bandingannya ia jauh lebih berperikemanusiaan dari apa yang menimpa umat Islam di seluruh dunia.

Saya bukan hendak membangkit kemarahan sesiapa, saya mengimpikan setiap kita terutama orang politik sentiasa bersuara jelas tentang hak dan nasib umat Islam dan manusia sejagat. Bertindak dengan kadar kemampuan yang dimiliki agar memberikan kesan yang positif dan menunjuk nilai persaudaraan kita. Janganlah kita hanya garang dan ‘cenge’ sesama sendiri, kendur dan takut apabila hendak menyatakan hak kita di hadapan ‘orang lain’.
Mana hilangnya ayat Allah yang menyebut: (maksud)
Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! sesiapa dalam kalangan kamu berpaling tadah dari agamanya, maka Allah akan mendatangkan suatu kaum yang Dia kasihkan mereka dan mereka juga kasihkan Dia; mereka pula bersifat rendah diri terhadap orang-orang yang beriman dan menunjukkan kemuliaan diri terhadap orang-orang kafir, mereka berjuang dengan bersungguh-sungguh pada jalan Allah, dan mereka tidak takut kepada celaan orang yang mencela. Yang demikian itu adalah limpah kurnia Allah yang Dia diberikan kepada sesiapa yang dikehendakiNya; kerana Allah Maha Luas limpah kurniaNya, lagi meliputi pengetahuanNya”. (Surah al-Maidah, ayat 54).
Namun, demikianlah kita, jika sesama kita bukan main lagi ‘lagaknya’, namun dengan orang lain, ‘lembut gigi daripada lidah’.

Allahu Akbar

Negara Kita Di Perintah Oleh Orang Jahil – TGNA (Dewan Dzul 10:15AM)

Intipati :
- Kerana itulah timbulnya bermacam-macam gejala dan fitnah
-Berlaku penyelewengan sana-sini dan Rasuah berleluasa
-Sehinggakan DSAI pun di tuduh meliwat kerana kekuasaan yang tidak berpandukan ajaran Allah.Sedangkan tiada siapapun yang melihat dia meliwat,tetapi sengaja diada-adakan untuk mengaibkan dan menjatuhkan seseorang.
- Negara sudah tidak ada rasa malu lagi.. macam – macam boleh jadi kerana pemerintah mengikut hawa nafsu mereka.
- Ini semua berpunca daripada negara diperintah oleh Orang yang jahil.
Rakyat… lagilah, seolah-olah macam bapa kencing berdiri… anak-anak,bukan setakat kencing berlari tapi dengan berak-berak sekalipun sambil berlari…

Cara terbaik untuk menyelesikannya ialah dengan kita melantik kembali orang yang takut pada Allah memerintah negara ini..

Dari Malaysia Waves :

Penduduk Manek Urai wajib menghantar amaran yang keras kepada UMNO dan Najib Tun Razak bahawa mereka menyayangi agama mereka dan mereka tidak akan bertoleransi kepada sokongan UMNO terhadap industri judi di Malaysia.Dalam bulan pertama Najib Tun Razak memegang jawatan Menteri Kewangan, beliau telah meluluskan 10 lesen “cabutan bertuah” (special draw) yang membesarkan lagi aktiviti judi “halal” di Malaysia. Ikuti laporan di bawah:” KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 4 — Last October, the government quietly awarded three gaming companies 10 more special draws a year in a move to boost flagging government revenues ahead of a painful economic slowdown that could cost thousands of jobs.The move came a month after Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak assumed the finance portfolio and was probably not publicised as it would have invariably been attacked as unIslamic by the conservative opposition Pas.”Terjemahan: “Oktober lepas, kerajaan secara senyap2 telah memberi kepada tiga syarikat judi 10 lagi (kebbenaran) “Cabutan Bertuah” dalam setahun di dalam usaha merekan untuk menaikkan lagi hasil pendapatan kerajaan Malaysia di dalam antisipasi kemelesetan ekonomi dunia yang semakin menghampiri Malaysia. Tindakan itu dibuat oleh TImbalan Perdana Menteri, Najib Tun Razak, sebulan selepas beliau memegang jawatan Menteri Kewangan dan tindakan tersebut tidak diwarwarkan kepada umum kerana dikhuatiri akan mendapat serangan yang mereka yang konservatif seperti PAS”Saya menyeru mereka yang bertanggungjawab terhadap penerangan semasa PRK Manek Urai untuk memperbesarkan isu ini. Saya yakin, tiada pengundi di Manek URai yang mahu mengundi parti yang memperjuangkan industri judi seperti UMNO.Islam Hanya Bahan Propaganda UMNO Semata-MataSebusuk-busuk DAP yang bukan Islam, namun mereka tidak menambah bilangan premis judi di negeri yang mereka perintah seperti Penang. Malahan, di semua negeri yang diperintah Pakatan Rakyat, tidak berlaku penambahan premis judi.Namun, UMNO yang kuat berkokok, kononnya mereka mahu membela Islam dan Melayu telah menambah lagi aktiviti judi di Malaysia.Tidakkah ini satu bukti betapa UMNO ini parti yang munafik. Di satu segi, mereka berkokok mempertahankan Islam. Di segi yang lain, mereka berselingkuh dan bersekedudukan dengan tokeh2 judi dan arak.Tindakan Menolak Kerajaan Perpaduan Adalah TepatTindakan Tok Guru menolak apa-apa hubungan dengan UMNO adalah tepat dan cermat. Mana mungkin PAS memperjuangkan Islam dengan mereka yang menjadi agen dan balachi kepada tokeh judi dan arak.Saya ada membaca blog Mahaguru58 dan saya ketawa berdekah-dekah di atas kebodohan beliau. (Rujuk artikel beliau “Muslim Unity in Malaysia?" )Beliau cukup marah apabila PAS menolak idea bekerjasama dengan UMNO dan beliau menuduh kononnya PAS membuang Islam dan bersikap seperti munafik kerana bekerjasama dengan DAP.Saya nak Tanya Mahaguru69, adakah bekerjasama dengan balachi tokeh judi macam UMNO ini dapat membela Islam?
