Forty-five lessons from Life

Forty-five lessons from Life


Forty-five lessons from Life

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 09:46 AM PST

This is something we should all read at least once a week! The author is Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio. She said that yo celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to
90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood.But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow..

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25 No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27 Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39.. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.


41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Its estimated 93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title '7%'. I'm in the 7%.


Remember that I will always share my spoon with you!


Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves.

[WASPADA] Ibu Tunggal Derita Tulang Reput Akibat Makan Jamu Mengandungi Steroid

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 07:01 AM PST

Derita kerana jamu, steroid punca tulang reput

KUANTAN - Niat seorang ibu tunggal untuk mening­kat­kan kecergasan badan akhir­nya menderita apabila tulang pinggul kirinya pecah dua tahun lalu akibat pe­ngam­bilan jamu yang dipercayai mengandungi steroid.

Kamisah Abdul Rashid, 52, berkata, dia yang menjual barangan jualan lang­sung mengambil jamu itu selepas di­perkenalkan rakan dan mencubanya tiga tahun lalu.

Menurutnya, selepas pe­ngambilan ja­mu itu dia menjadi lebih bertenaga se­hinggalah dia terjatuh dari kerusi.

"Selepas kejadian itu, dok­tor menge­sahkan saya me­nga­lami osteoporosis ia­itu tulang reput menyebabkan tulang pinggul saya pecah akibat hentakan kuat ketika jatuh.

"Malah doktor mengata­kan terdapat kandungan ste­roid dalam badan saya me­nyebabkan tulang reput.

"Saya terpaksa tinggal di wad selama sebulan untuk me­nerima rawatan di Hos­pital Tengku Ampuan Afzan (HTAA)," katanya ketika di­temui pada Program Ziarah Jabatan Kemajuan Masyarakat (Kemas) di rumahnya di Ta­man LKNP Bukit Setongkol.

Hadir menyampaikan sumbangan, Pengerusi Ma­yang Parlimen Indera Mah­kota, Datuk Mohd Hazmi Yusof.

Kamisah yang juga ibu kepada tiga cahaya mata ter­paksa berpindah ke rumah ibu bapanya, Abdul Rashid Ali, 76, dan Siti Zaharah Em­bong, 75, di Taman LKNP kerana memerlukan perhatian kerana tidak mampu me­nguruskan diri sejak kejadian itu.

Katanya, dia kini hanya mampu ter­baring dan mengguling-guling badannya untuk bergerak.

"Kalau boleh saya mahu sembuh se­perti biasa tetapi mungkin harapan tipis kerana saya tidak boleh menjalani pem­bedahan kerana ada masalah paru-paru.

"Nasib baik anak kedua, Nor Zaleha, 19, yang sedang belajar di Ikip boleh me­nguruskan saya," katanya.

Kamisah berkata, sejak ja­tuh sakit, perbelanjaan dia anak-beranak hanya bergan­tung pada duit simpanan yang tidak seberapa.

"Kesulitan itu menyebab­kan anak bongsu, Muhammad Amirul Hassan, 18, membuat keputusan untuk tidak me­lanjutkan pelajaran sebaliknya bekerja untuk menampung perbelanjaan kami," katanya.

Sementara itu, Mohd Haz­mi berkata, dia akan mem­beri bantuan sewajarnya kepada Kamisah bagi mengurangkan penderitaan ibu tunggal itu.

"Dia memohon untuk mendapatkan kerusi roda yang sesuai dan kita akan usahakannya," katanya.


[WASPADA] Mesin Pengisar Buah-buahan Palsu Guna Jenama Terkenal

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 05:40 AM PST

Empat mesin pengisar buah palsu dirampas

MUAR - Pejabat Perdagangan Dalam Negeri Koperasi Dan Kepenggunaan (PPDNKK) Cawangan Muar merampas empat mesin pengisar buah-buahan palsu menggunakan jenama terkenal dari sebuah kedai barangan elektrik di Sungai Abong, di sini.

Pegawai Penguatkuasa, Haidzir Shah Khairuddin berkata, peralatan palsu itu dijual pada harga RM239 yang dibeli seorang pelanggan dari Johor Bahru pada Disember lalu.

Menurutnya, tetapi peralatan itu didapati rosak selepas beberapa hari digunakan, lalu pelanggan itu menghubungi kedai berkenaan.

"Malangnya kedai ini menyuruhnya menghantar sendiri peralatan yang rosak ke pusat perkhidmatan jenama berkenaan di Johor Bahru.

"Pusat perkhidmatan merujuk peralatan ini ke syarikat berkenaan di Singapura yang merupakan tempat pemeriksaan barangan itu di Jepun, Itali dan United States," katanya kepada Sinar Harian, semalam.

Bagaimanapun, syarikat berkenaan mendapati tidak pernah mengeluarkan produk itu dan menghantar wakil dari Singapura ke Muar.

Haidzir Shah berkata, wakil itu turut membeli satu set peralatan berkenaan untuk tujuan semakan terperinci di Singapura sebelum mengemukakan satu laporan.

"Saya bersama pengurus jualan jenama berkenaan dari Singapura, Mohammad Jilon menyerbu kedai itu kira-kira jam 11.30 pagi, Rabu lalu dan merampas empat set peralatan ini.

"Siasatan mendapati hanya dua pengedar dibenarkan memasarkan barangan jenama itu di Muar dan satu lagi kedai alat elektrik dalam
bandar Muar," katanya.

Menurutnya, pembeli itu tidak mengetahui, set mesin pengisar buah-buahan itu palsu.

"Kes disiasat di bawah Akta Pengguna 2011 dan kami turut membuat laporan di Ibu Pejabat Polis (IPD) Muar," katanya. -SH


Maurice Collis recorded the root of Anti-Indian and Anti-Muslim sentiments in Burma/Myanmar in his book “Trials in Burma”

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 04:50 AM PST

Anti-Indian Riots

This paragraph's basic facts are taken from Maurice Collis' "Trials in Burma".

He was the judge in Rangoon, eye witnessed the riots and wrote his book based on the British Official White Paper given by, The Simon Commission (The Royal Statutory Commission, appointed according to the Law of the Government of India1919, The Montague-Chelmsford Law)

Anti Indian sentiments started after the First World War during the British rule. In Burma there were half million Muslims in 1921. Burmese population then was only eleven million. And in capital Rangoon 70% of the population was Indians, 10% was Chinese and Burmese Buddhists were only 20% of the population. Capital Rangoon is more like a foreign city and Burmese Buddhists were like foreigner in their own country. More than half of Indians were Indian Muslims. Although Myanmar Muslims are different from the Indian Muslims and Indian Myanmar Muslims, Burmese Buddhists put them together even mixed with Hindu Indians, and called them Kala.

The root of this hatred was_

  1. Different in religion
  2. Basic anti foreigner feelings
  3. Low standard of living of the recent migrants.
  4. Recent migrants' willingness to do, Dirty, Difficult and Dangerous jobs
  5. Indians took over the Burmese lands especially Chittiers.
  6. Indians had already filled up and monopolized the government services when the Burmese were later ready for those jobs.
  7. Professional competition
  8. World economic recession of 1930 aggravated the competition for the reduced economic pie.

In 1930 there was an anti Indian riots in Burma under British rule. This was not aimed on the Muslims or Islam but on Indians in general.

The problem started in Yangon port, because of the irresponsible action of the British firm of Stevedores. It had employed hundreds of Indian labourers. While those Indians were on strike, that firm had employed the Burmese workers just to break the strike. So the Indians had to give in and ended the strike. Next morning when the Burmese workers came and report for work they were told by the British firm that their service was no more needed. Some of the Indian workers who were angry because they had to end the strike at failure because of these Burmese workers laughed at them. Some Burmese workers were angry and started the fight and Indians retaliate. It grew rapidly into anti Indian (including anti Muslims) riots. Even within the first half-hour at least two hundred Indians were massacred and flung into the river. Authorities ordered the police to fire upon any assembly of five or more who refuse to lay down the arms, under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code. That was a black day of 26 May. Within two it spread to the whole country and no one knew the exact causality.

In 1931 Indian population of Yangon was still 63% of total and half of them were Muslims. Even Burmese Buddhists must be able to speak Hindi / Urdu in order to survive in Yangon.

There was another anti Muslim riots in 1938, while still under British rule. The real basic hidden agenda was aimed at British Government but the Burmese dare not show this openly. The growing Nationalistic sentiments fanned by the local media disguised as anti Muslim to avoid the early detection and notice followed by the full blown force of mighty British Government machinery.

The Burmese Nationalists fanned the anti Muslim sentiments by using the following facts:

  1. Problems in mixed marriages: Issue of conversion of the Burmese girls and the religious and legal matters that follows, e.g. non-conversion, divorce, death and inheritance.
  2. Economically the Muslims were better and some amount of jealousy set in.
  3. Buddhists could not accept Myanmar Muslims as fellow citizens but look down on them as Kalas or foreigners.
  4. Burmese Newspapers started the hate campaign against Muslims since 1935. They use the words such as "Muslims had taken their wealth and girls", to incite hatreds. They called to expel the Muslims from the government service and to 'deport' them.
  5. There was a religious argument between a Moulvi Hassan Shah and a Buddhist, Maung Pan Nyo. A book came out in 1931 about that and Buddhists published pamphlets again to attack Islam. Burmese Muslim Abdulla Maung Sin wrote the rebuttal claiming that Maung Pan Nyo's book offended Islam and the Prophet. Then Maung Shwe Hpi, a Myanmar Muslim published a book and included all of the above-mentioned books and articles. Hasan Shah published the new edition without any consequences. In June 1938 a Buddhist journalist published the most offending extracts. Newspapers, organizations and Buddhist monks demanded action against the author. They called to stop inter marriages to prevent the spread of Islam.
  6. The monks even guarded in the markets to prevent the Buddhists from purchasing at Muslim shops.

Because of these anti Muslim activity and preparation and inciting to start an anti Muslim riots, Muslim organizations and Muslim newspapers started a campaign to please the Buddhists to avoid a riot. On 26.7.1938 anti-Muslim rally was held at Shwe Dagon pagoda.

Burmese started the Burma for Burmese only Campaign. Then marched to the Muslim (Surti) Bazar. While the Indian Police broke the violent demonstration, three monks were hurt. Burmese Newspapers use the pictures of Indian police attacking the Buddhist monks to further incite the spread of riots. Muslim properties: shops, houses and mosques were looted, destroyed and burnt to ashes. They assaulted and even massacred the Muslims. It spreads to all over Burma and recorded that 113 mosques were damaged.

On 22.9.38 British Governor set up the Inquiry Committee. They found out that the real cause was the discontent in the government regarding the deterioration in sociopolitical and economic conditions of Burmans. The book was used as an inciting factor by the irresponsible Burmese newspapers. They use the anti Muslim propaganda as a disguise to cover up for the political struggle to gain independence. So the Buddhist used the Muslims as a scapegoat, for the first time, to fight against the British.

The Simon Commission (The Royal Statutory Commission, appointed according to the Law of the Government of India 1919, The Montague-Chelmsford Law) to inquire the effects of Diarchy system of ruling Burma, had recommended that special places be assigned to the Myanmar Muslims in the Legislative Council.

It recommended that:

  1. full rights of citizenship should be guaranteed to all the minorities:
  2. the right of free worship,
  3. the right to follow their own customs,
  4. the right to own property
  5. and to receive a share of the public revenues for the maintenance of their own educational and charitable institutions.
  6. It recommended Home Rule or independent government separate from India or the status of dominion.

But the British Government refused to accept all those recommended except the separation, at the round table committee on India held in London in 1930.

Anti-foreign sentiment and Nationalism

The pride and good feelings of nationalism: the love for the country, race and religion is frequently exploited and used by many politicians, ultra-nationalists, religious fanatics, racial extremists and previous Military Juntas of Burma.

Adolf Hitler of Nazi Germany and Slobodan Milosevic, were the most prominent and indisputable example. But it is shameful to admit that many governments and politicians are guilty of this crime one time or another to get or accomplish their own agenda or to cover up their faults and failures. They use to threaten their own people with the foreign powers and enemies, western colonists, imperialists, religious terrorists, Communists and possible outbreak of racial riots, danger of losing independence of their beloved country.

It is sad to note that, that propaganda warfare is usually successful with the help of the local government controlled media and because of the use or exploitation of the nationalistic spirit. People against this would be labeled as unpatriotic or traitor.

Once intoxicated with the patriotism and nationality fever, people were blinded. They are ready to do anything for that patriotism. They are even willing to kill or dare to be killed. They are willing to sacrifice themselves, their family, their property and everything on earth. Patriotism could mobilize the whole nation.

Myanmar opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi once comments regarding the political extremists, religious fanatics and ultra nationalists, " Well, there are people who think that it's right to do anything in the name of their religion, their race, their family, or any organization to which they may belong."

FEW WOULD ARGUE that Shahrizat has so far been the best Minister for the disabled community to date. 

By that, she is far more approachable, unsnobbish and willing to listen to the handicapped community whenever they are around her. 

She also seems to understand the disabled's right to self-determination (speaking up for themselves) far more than her other counterparts have in years.

THE MALAYSIAN INDIAN IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM - KEY NOTE ADDRESS BY PROF. DATO DR. C.P. RAMACHANDRAN

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 04:29 AM PST

Welcome to the Millennium Conference for Malaysian Indians.

The theme of the Conference as you would have no doubt noted is 'Rebuilding Our Community'.

More than a year ago a few of us were discussing the incident in Kampong Medan and were deliberating the big question of how marginalised Malaysian Indians had become.

And after some discussion we felt that part of the cause for the dire straits of the Malaysia Indians has been the relative non-involvement of the middle class Indian in the effort to help the impoverished and marginalised Indians in the country.

THE CONTEXT
That a wide chasm exists today between the middle class Malaysian Indian and the working class Malaysian Indian is an undeniable fact. It is also a reality deeply rooted in the history of Indian migration to Malaysia, euphemistically referred to as "labour" and "non-labour" migrations. The former category primarily refers to the bulk of migrants brought under the dreaded Colonial indentured system succinctly encapsulated in the Colonial administrator Sir Thomas Hyslop's famous phrase: "We want Indians as indentured labourers not free men"

The non-labour migrants refer to the "literate" Indians brought in to man the administrative and clerical and security services. K.S.Sandhu in his seminal work on Indian migration to Malaya, best describes the genesis of the middle class - working class chasm as follows:

"Once this movement of literate Indians to Malaya began, many more emigrated from the same localities, and found employment on plantations and in other private enterprises where the employers found them invaluable assistants in dealing with Indian labour"

"Invaluable assistants in dealing with Indian labour" is the operative phrase. Herein lay the roots of the mindset of the middle class Malaysian Indian of today. A mindset steeped in sublime ignorance and blind arrogance, even to the point of denying the very roots of our common genetic and ethnic heritage. A mindset that readily identified with the ruling class to subjugate and lord-over our downtrodden brethren. This same mindset persists today in the way we view ourselves.

However there is a big gap in the way others view us. It is of no consequence to other Malaysians that we have Dravidian, Aryan or any other esoteric roots; or that we come in many shades of colour. To them - we are just Indians!

In this beautiful multiethnic nation of ours, we have been and are, either the object of envy or the subject of denigration- more often than not, the latter. The microscopic minority that has achieved the riches desired by all and sundry, remains miniscule and withdrawn from the mainstream of daily problems faced by the toiling underclass majority. In between we have the not so significant middle class that wallows in its illusion of grandeur and is equally divorced from the problems of the vast majority. All this is rooted in history. We need to understand everything in the historical context before we can even begin to comprehend the enormity of the challenges that we have to address if we are to remain a meaningful component of the Malaysian polity in the new millennium.

A SENSE OF HISTORY
Without a sense of history any community is condemned to a time warp of ignorance and inaction.

The saga of the Malaysian Indian is steeped in centuries of civilisational hegemony - from the 1st to the 13th century as socio-cultural and religious "rulers" and in the 19th and 20th centuries as the politically and economically "ruled".

The Indian provided the civilisational foundation during the early centuries of the first millennium for all ASEAN member nations, except Vietnam and Philippines. Thus the historians reference to "Indianised States of South-East Asia" or "Greater India". Lest it be forgotten, it is the Indian civilization that provided the political, social, religious, cultural and administrative leadership for this region. Historians Rawlinson and Winstedt described this era as India's all but total cultural contribution to Southeast Asia, from the first to the fifteenth century. After a lapse of a thousand years these contacts were resumed but in less creditable form. Indians did not return to Malaya as representatives of a prosperous maritime nation but as indentured labourers from a land subject to alien rule. (C.Kondapi: Indians Overseas, 1951)

It is a historical fact that the successors of Greater India transitioned into the "cannon fodder" of the Colonial powers in the 19th century. In Colonial Malaya they were the economic slaves of the British, be it in the plantations or the administrative urban centers.

This position was somewhat maintained in post-Independence Malaya and Malaysia. Whilst there was some upward mobility to professional and middle-class ranks, this was largely confined to sub-ethnic groups that had the initial advantage of English education and that, which placed a high premium on education.

The majority of the Malaysian Indian has been mired in a proletarian under-class status. In 1957 almost 70.4 percent of the Indian labour force was in the rural plantation and mining sectors, 24.2 percent were employed in government agencies mainly as labourers, 3.6 percent in transport services and 1.8 percent in manufacturing. In 2000, 15.1 percent remain in the agriculture sector whilst 62 percent are in the manufacturing and services sectors. This fundamental shift from primarily rural work "tapping rubber" to the urban work of "soldering chips" and "driving lorries" is a reality that needs to be recognized. Is there really a difference between the fetid, unending estate environment and the inhuman squalor of the urban squatter colony?

THE PROBLEM STATED
The socio-economic problems faced by the production-service worker of the 21st century are not much different from that experienced by the indentured labourer of the 19th and 20th centuries. The setting has changed but the problems have not.


They are very real- the low educational achievement, the social inequities and the lack of political or economic clout. This is best seen in the high dropout rate, the high crime rate and the dependence on political and economic handouts.

Indians feature highest in all of the negative statistics.

" The second highest infant mortality rates.

" The lowest life expectancy rates- 67.3 years compared to national average of 71.2.

" The highest school drop out rates best seen in the data that only 5.0 percent of Indians reach the tertiary level compared to the national average of 7.5 percent.
[And to top it all, just recently we have openly declared to the world that our students cannot make the cut under the newly introduced system of meritocracy for tertiary intake!]

" The highest incidence of alcoholism, that cuts across all classes. Alcohol it seems is the greatest leveler of class distinctions.

" The highest incidence of drug addiction in proportion to population.

" The highest number of prisoners in proportion to population.

" And we are told that the largest number of gangs is now Indian gang and that 60 percent of serious crimes are committed by Indians.

These are depressing statistics. But is it all bad news? Not really.

Indians constitute 15.5 percent of professionals in the country.
This includes doctors (28.4%), lawyers (26.8%), dentists (21%), veterinary surgeons (28.5%), engineers (6.4%), accountants (5.8%), surveyors (3.0%)and architects (1.5%) and Scientists. There are also an increasing number of businessmen in the Indian community. The Sindhis, Gujeratis and Punjabis have been formidable businessmen, as are the Indian Muslims.

There are Indian contractors, road builders, oil and gas suppliers and contractors and we are all aware of the Indian who built up a telecommunications, media and gaming empire and the Indian who built one of the fastest growing ports in the country, as well as Scientists and  Doctors who has reached highest positions. Then again these high achievers are more than likely to be the descendants of the "non-labour" migrants of yore.

INDIAN CONTRIBUTION TO NATION BUILDING
It is undeniable fact that Indians have contributed to the building of this country since the 19th century. This is sometimes forgotten.


Indian labour opened up the country. Indian labour opened up the forests, established the rubber plantations, built the roads, railways, set up the transmission lines, built the ports and airports.

Indian civil servants formed the core of the civil service and the medical service. Indian veterinarians looked after animal husbandry. Indian teachers formed the backbone with the missionaries of the teaching service. Indians pioneered private education in the country. (e.g. my father)

But this was at a high and often untold cost to human rights and dignity.
Hundreds of thousands of Indians died because of disease and hardship. In the building of Port Klang alone more than 500 thousand Indians died of malaria.


The 1957 Federation of Malaya Census Report succinctly summarises this point as follows:

"The important characteristics to note about Indian migration to Malaya are that, firstly, the great bulk of this movement has been of an ephemeral character, with approximately 4 million entering and 2.8 million leaving the country between 1860 and 1957.

Secondly, much of the 1.2 million net immigration appears to have been wiped out by disease, snake-bites, exhaustion and malnutrition, for the Indian population of Malaya in 1957 numbered only 858,615 of which 62.1 percent was local born."

The invaluable contribution of the Indians appears to have been forgotten. But some have remembered. In 1975 a local born Indian known by his initials SAJ wrote this unpublished Ode to the Indian Working Class and I quote:

"We tapped the rubber that beautified your homes,
We built the roads that produced your bountiful economy,
And now we live in non-descript squalor.
You pass us by and snigger at our sub-human status,
Not in the least realizing how our blood, sweat and tears,
Contributed to the comfort and the opulence,
You now enjoy!"


Whilst others may choose to forget, Indians should not forget. Indians also played a role in the fight for Independence and in the fight against the communists. It is sad therefore to contemplate the dire straits the community is in today.

The object of this conference is to bring all Malaysian Indians, irrespective of language or location from India into a common forum to discuss the Malaysian Indian dilemma and to examine what role we can each play in helping the community at large. As our numbers continue to decline, in a relative sense, we appear to become less and less relevant. In 1957 we constituted almost 12 percent of the population. It is forecasted that in the year 2020 Indians will only form 6.4 percent. The implications from the political, social and economic dimensions are self-evident. Perhaps in the Census of the year 2050, we may even be classified as "Others"! ( A real possibility)

ROLE OF THE MIDDLE CLASS
In a society where race determines opportunity the Indian is at a severe disadvantage. All Indians must now become involved. The problem of the Malaysian Indian community is our problem as well. We must acknowledge it. It is our problem because the displaced, alienated Malaysian Indian working class individual that gets embroiled in crime and other socially unacceptable practices is not going to discriminate on the basis of ethnicity in targeting his next victim. He is just as likely to rob our homes or kill us as he would others. Why should he discriminate in our favour when we have not done him or his family any favours?


We cannot like the proverbial ostrich pretend that it is someone else's problem. It is ours and ours alone. This is precisely why we need to build the bridges of social inclusion.

We are all Indians. Whatever the precise shade of our complexions or shape of our noses, those outside the community perceive us, as Indians. We should not be ashamed of belonging to the Indian community. We have a common value system born in the cradle of the Indian civilization. We come from one of the oldest civilizations in the world and this behoves us to carry ourselves with dignity and distinction.

NEED TO ADOPT THE LEARNING PARADIGM
The adage " knowledge is power "is often used, but what does it really mean to the individual and the community?


We can only be categorised as mindless robots if we repeat platitudes but do not attempt to understand the real import! Worse still if we do not put to use what we acquire as information and internalise it as knowledge for the betterment of self and the community at large.

Pursuing knowledge for the sake of knowledge is indeed the domain of philosophers in the Socratic tradition. Theirs' was a cerebral exercise - to expand and extend the limits of logical thinking and to postulate on the intricacies and the vagaries of life. They had their utility in providing the intellectual tradition for the human civilization.

We can't all be Plato or Aristotle, but we can certainly use the information available in this wondrous, yet daunting, era of the information society, to upgrade our knowledge and skills to make ourselves better human beings.

For this, we have to rise above the level of textbook knowledge. We have to stop gloating that we are educated, we are professionals, what have you…

To be called "educated" one needs to translate the knowledge acquired to strive for a higher and higher quality of life in the spiritual, intellectual and of course the material dimensions.

It is so very easy to escape into the world of social snobbery using our so-called professional -cum-educated status in society. However, deep in our souls we know, it is certainly most difficult to be recognised as a truly educated person.

It is not the paper qualifications, but the possession of the mindset to constantly strive for knowledge and thus a better understanding of the rapidly changing world, that qualifies one to attain the humble membership of the society of the educated.

Thus as a community we need to adopt a learning paradigm. Let us cast aside our false pretences, our flawed assumptions and our predisposition for myth making. That should be the start to opening up a whole world of knowledge for the larger good of the community.

In my humble opinion, the Malaysian Indian needs to rediscover the passion for learning and the thirst for knowledge. Then from a civilisational perspective, Malaysian Indian community can reconstruct the glory of past millennia and become meaningful players in the Malaysia of the new millennium.

WAY FORWARD
The reason for this conference is to establish a coherent framework of action to guide individuals, groups and institutions to bring to bear resources, to first resolve the inimical problems and second to build a spirit of self-reliance.


It is only through a sense of history can the Malaysian Indian see himself or herself as a person of self-worth and self-reliance. The achievement of this state of consciousness can only come about if the Malaysian Indian middle-class, unprecedented as it is, takes the bold step to actively build bridges to engage the under-class majority. We cannot afford to continue be polarized along the axis of opposition between productive, information-rich, affluent groups and impoverished groups that are economically devalued and socially excluded.

In my view to be socially and economically excluded is unfortunate, but to be "included" and not do anything about it to benefit the society we live in, is blatantly criminal. We all have important and invaluable roles to play. We need to target segments of the population to bring about "hubs of learning" to facilitate innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship. Value creation that results from this will contribute to economic development.

Let us do it in small yet meaningful ways; mini-projects in schools, places of worship, homes, and community centres. What is required is a total effort by all sectors of society. Sustainability in implementation of programmes and projects is critical.

Getting people involved in the process of transformation is key. It must be people-driven. Of course people must want to change. We cannot afford to subscribe to the view that one NGO's, one political party's or one government agency's approach is the panacea for all problems. Blind arrogance should not be allowed to control the way we need to respond to challenges. History should not be allowed to repeat itself.

Can we not learn some lessons from our chequered history in this land of milk and honey? Surely as individuals we need to first make the commitment to life-long learning. Second, we can make someone, somewhere information-rich by sharing our tacit knowledge, on a daily basis. The true meaning of prosperity for Malaysian Indian in the new millennium can be an abiding reality, if we can all make this commitment today. The paths to prosperity begin with you!

CONCLUSION
If as a community we do not want to be marginalised to occupy the "exalted" positions on the periphery of society, we need to make a positive start by understanding the basis of the real problems and challenges. Then and only then will our future be secure.


This indeed is a unique moment in history to rise above the petty prejudices and ignorance and to take actions that will ensure the Malaysian Indian a rightful place in the Malaysia of the new millennium.

It is battle for the hearts and minds and it must begin with the self-realisation that it is "our problem", not someone else's. We can mobilize the resources if we have the vision and the will to change our mindset.

Finally, I hope that cognizant of the aspirations of all other Malaysian communities, you would conduct your deliberations in a constructive and objective manner.

In this regard, I would like to share with you the words of wisdom given to us by none other than the late Indian philosopher par excellence, Dr.S.Radhakrishnan:" We may become learned and skilled, but if we do not have some kind of purpose in our life, our lives themselves become blind, blundering and bitter. For a truly cultured mind, there is a single-mindedness, a dedication to a single purpose. For the uncultured mind, the whole life is scattered in many directions. Therefore it is essential that the education you acquire should give you not merely learning and skill but endow you with a definite purpose in life. What that purpose is, you have to define for yourself".

As for today and tomorrow, it is my fervent hope that you would single-mindedly focus on charting the course for the advancement of the Malaysian Indian in the new millennium.






THE MALAYSIAN INDIAN IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM:
KEY NOTE ADDRESS BY PROF. DATO DR. C.P. RAMACHANDRAN


Pembantu Peribadi Ditemui Mati Dijerut, Ditikam

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 04:14 AM PST

Serdang – Tanda tanya dan kerisauan seorang suami terhadap isterinya yang tidak pulang ke rumah terjawab apabila wanita itu ditemui mati dijerut dan ditikam kira-kira 200 meter dari tempat dia bekerja di Serdang Perdana di sini, lewat malam tadi.

Mangsa berusia 39 tahun ditemui oleh suami dan majikannya di tempat duduk penumpang sebelah pemandu dalam kereta Honda City di tempat letak kereta berbayar.

Ketua Polis Daerah Serdang, Superintendan Abd Razak Elias berkata, mangsa yang bekerja sebagai pembantu peribadi di sebuah syarikat teknologi maklumat di Serdang Perdana biasanya akan pulang ke rumah sekitar jam 8 malam.

Menurutnya, kelewatan mangsa pulang ke rumahnya di Bandar Kinrara, Puchong malam tadi menyebabkan suaminya risau dan terus menghubungi majikannya.

"Selepas lebih kurang sejam tidak pulang ke rumah, suami bersama majikan mangsa kemudian mencari isterinya di sekitar kawasan bangunan komersial itu.

"Kira-kira jam 10.30 malam, suami mangsa menemuinya dalam kereta, yang biasa dipandunya ke tempat kerja, dalam keadaan berlumuran darah dan tidak bernyawa," katanya.

Abd Razak berkata, sebaik menerima panggilan kira-kira jam 11.45 malam, sepasukan anggota polis tiba di tempat kejadian dan mendapati satu mayat wanita dalam kereta yang tidak berkunci.

"Siasatan mendapati mangsa dijerut dengan wayar pembesar suara dan ditikam di bahagian kiri leher menggunakan pisau.

"Sebilah pisau sepanjang enam inci ditemui di luar pintu kereta di bahagian pemandu dan dawai sepanjang satu kaki berhampiran mayat mangsa," katanya.

Beliau berkata, motif kejadian masih dalam siasatan dan pihaknya percaya suspek lebih daripada seorang.

Siasatan awal mendapati tiada kesan pergelutan yang berlaku.

"Ada beberapa biji limau mandarin yang sedia dikupas ditemui dan dipercayai berkemungkinan mangsa mungkin sedang menikmatinya ketika itu. Berkemungkinan juga mangsa yang mempunyai dua anak masih kecil sedang bersembang dengan suspek tetapi belum ada petunjuk penuh berhubung perkara itu.

"Pemeriksaan mendapati telefon bimbit, dompet dan beg tangan milik mangsa hilang. Suami mangsa memaklumkan mangsa adalah seorang isteri yang baik dan tidak mempunyai musuh dengan sesiapa,"katanya.

Beliau berkata, kes di siasat di bawah Seksyen 302 Kanun Keseksaan dan mayat mangsa dihantar ke Hospital Serdang untuk bedah siasat. -SH

TG Haji Hadi: Calon PRU13 Mesti Penuhi Syarat, Bukan Sekadar "Boleh Menang"

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 02:49 AM PST

Hadi: Punca Pas pecat Hasan Ali

MUKADIMAH: Dalam wawancara selama 1 1/2 jam bersama Sinar Harian baru-baru ini, Presiden Pas, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, bukan sahaja menegaskan tidak mempunyai agenda untuk menjadi perdana menteri, tetapi juga mengulas tindak-tanduk bekas Pesuruhjaya Pas Selangor, Datuk Dr Hasan Mohamed Ali, yang dipecat daripada parti itu kerana melanggar disiplin dan pelbagai cabaran serta halangan dihadapi Pas, terutama dalam usaha mengambil alih Putrajaya.

Ikutilah wawancara Timbalan Pengarang Berita, Farush Khan; Editor Terengganu, Wan Normi Hasan dan wartawan Wan Saidatul Fadzilah Wan Najemudin dengan tokoh agama dan politik itu, yang berlangsung di kediaman beliau di Rusila, Marang, Terengganu.

Kenyataan Datuk Hasan menjejaskan juga prestasi parti?

Hadi: Dalam sehari dua, apabila sudah banyak hari akan terserlahlah langkah kita itu betul. Contohnya, isu berkait dengan Himpunan Sejuta Umat. Kita lihat isu ini banyak benda tidak tepat. Contohnya, orang Melayu masuk Kristian sampai ratus-ratus ribu. Pernah dengar kan? Bila polis siasat, maklumat itu tidak betul, orang yang disiasat dibebaskan. Mengapa tiada diambil tindakan? Kerana ada pelindung dia; kita tahu. Pada kita murtad ini bukan sahaja masuk Kristian, tapi termasuklah hina hukum Islam. Boleh jadi murtad dengan kejahilan dia, berlaku begitu rupa. Menghalalkan yang haram, mengharamkan yang halal. Jadi, murtad ini luas. Dan kita nampak isu ini dipolitikkan dan pada PRU 2008 ada yang berhempas-pulas mendapatkan undi Melayu. Rata-rata orang Melayu tak tahu agama kebanyakannya dan mereka sayang pada Islam. Mereka jadikan isu ini untuk tarik undi Melayu, bukan untuk mempertahankan Islam.

Saya pernah bawa usul menangani murtad di Parlimen pada 1998. Mengikut standing order di Parlimen, usul bukan kerajaan hendaklah diletakkan di belakang. Yang kedua, usul seperti ini hendaklah dibawa oleh seorang menteri kerajaan yang boleh disokong, dirujuk kepada standing order. Apabila menteri bawa, ada sokongan. Setelah ada undi barulah saya bawa usul ini, banyak lapis, akhirnya ditinggalkan begitu sahaja usul ini.

Tetapi akhir-akhir ini dibawa isu ini dengan Himpunan Sejuta Umat. Tidak lebih daripada mempolitikkan isu, bukan nak pertahankan akidah dan nak gunakan orang Pas untuk mengerah orang Pas ramai-rami hadir di stadium Shah Alam. Saya tahu ada kalangan yang nak sediakan bas. Apabila kita tahu macam ini, kita kata jangan pergi, Datuk Hasan Ali pergi, kemudian pergi lagi ke Perak dan buat kenyataan. Kenyataan ini tidak tepat dengan apa yang kita nak. Memang kita tidak setuju dengan murtad; lawan murtad, tapi Saidina Ali (Abu Talib, Khalifah Islam keempat) berkata, kata-kata yang betul, tetapi tujuannya kebatilan.

Atau matlamatnya tak betul. Tak ada dalam Islam ini, matlamat menghalalkan cara. Matlamat mesti betul, cara mesti betul. Kalau matlamat betul, cara salah, tidak boleh. Matlamat salah, cara betul, tidak boleh. Dua-dua kena betul. Itu lagi kena faham dan Pas bukan milik siapa, milik organisasi, kumpulan kita.

Pas ini ada Majlis Syura Ulama dilantik dalam Jawatankuasa Pas Pusat empat orang, Dewan Ulama lantik empat orang, Dewan Pemuda dua orang, Dewan Muslimat dua orang kemudian mereka dilantik ini pilih lima orang lagi dalam kalangan ulama yang boleh merujuk dalam bahasa Arab, merujuk kitab-kitab Islam; yang kita ketahui kewibawaan, akademik dan kemampuan.

Kita tahu moral dia konsisten dengan pendirian dan dia boleh buat keputusan, boleh membatalkan keputusan parti, sekiranya bercanggah dengan al-Quran dan hadis, ijmak ulama dan kias. Ini jaminan yang ada dalam Pas. Kalau ada ahli parti yang nak buat sendiri, bertindak sendiri, maka kalau dia bercakap sebagai orang Pas, orang kaitkan dengan Pas, jadi lebih baik dia bebas.

Bangunan Umno Hulu Tereng­ganu disimbah dengan cat hijau?

Hadi: Saya rasa kita orang Pas tidak buat sampai begitu. Kita ajar orang kita tidak boleh melampaui batas. Kalau ada orang Pas bertindak begitu kita disiplinkan dia kerana Islam ajar kita, kita berlawan dalam perang pun tidak boleh melampaui batas, apa lagi perang melalui demokrasi. Itu boleh jadi pihak lain yang buat provokasi, boleh jadi belaka. Dalam politik boleh jadi semua.

Siapa Menteri Besar Terengganu kalau Pas menang dalam PRU13?

Hadi: Itu ditentukan parti. Belum tentu saya bertanding di state (negeri). Kalau bertanding di state pun, belum tentu lagi saya jadi menteri besar. Bahkan di Kelantan, saya bagi contoh; tahun 1959, yang jadi menteri besar Datuk Ishak Bakri. Datuk Asri tidak jadi menteri besar. Lepas tu Ishak jadi Speaker, Datuk Asri jadi menteri besar, dia bukan Pesuruhjaya Pas Kelantan. Lepas tu Datuk Asri tidak jadi menteri besar walaupun dia pesuruhjaya. Tuan Haji Mat Amin Haji Yakob Almarhum.

Di Terengganu juga pernah begitu, masa Daud Saad Almarhum menteri besar, dia pegang pesuruhjaya. Yang dilantik ialah diterima rakyat, diterima pegawai pentadbir negeri. Kerana kita nak memerintah negeri ini ada beberapa orang di kalangan tuanku sultan, pegawai tadbir negeri, wakil rakyat, yang keempatnya rakyat. Ini kita mesti lihat penerimaan semua sekali. Tidak boleh kita nak tentu-tentukan begitu.

Siapa Perdana Menteri (jika PR menang PRU-13?)

Hadi: Pada peringkat ini kita dalam Pas tidak bincang. Di peringkat PR pun tidak bincang. Kita bincang untuk ke Putrajaya dulu. Jadi, macam orang kampung cerita, kambing tak bela lagi, sirih tak tanam lagi. Jadi duk bergaduh nak buat pagar. Yang ni kata nak buat pagar, yang ni kata nak tambat kambing. Apabila tanya mana kambing, tiada kambing lagi. Mana sirih, tidak tanam lagi pun. Apabila sampai masa, insya-Allah kita ada orang layak. Macam saya kata dululah, saya tiada dalam agenda menjadi perdana menteri. Yang penting, kita nak perkasakan Islam. Siapa duduk di atas, saya terima, bahkan saya boleh rehat; balik kampung jadi pembantu sahaja, pergi ke laut, balik jadi nelayan.

Dari segi politik, kepimpinan negara mesti Melayu Islam kerana majoriti adalah orang Melayu. Itu mengikut kaedah politik Islam. Kalau orang Cina masuk Islam, jumlah mereka besar, mereka ada tokoh, mereka layak jadi pemimpin. Kita orang Melayu kena terima, kalau India begitu juga.

Jadi realiti hari ini majoriti orang Melayu adalah Islam. DAP sudah terima Islam sebagai agama Persekutuan. Hak istimewa orang Melayu dia terima, bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa kebangsaan dia terima. Dalam masa yang sama, agama lain ada hak dia. Bangsa lain yang miskin tidak boleh diabaikan, hak dia untuk mengajar bahasa ibunda tetapi bahasa Melayu jadi bahasa rasmi. Dan kita kena sedar Umno tidak buat benda ini dalam masa 50 tahun lebih. Tidak perkasakan; itu silap dialah. Yang kita silapkan MCA, MIC, silapkan Gerakan; silap Umno sendiri. Dalam Pas sendiri, kita tidak tolak ansur dan DAP menerima kerana kita tegas dalam masalah ini.

Barangkali saudara-saudari ingat masa tahun 2000 DAP keluar daripada Barisan Alternatif, minta Pas batalkan beberapa agenda Pas, kita tegas; kita tidak berganjak dan DAP keluar dan masuk balik. Dengan kita tidak berganjak itu menunjukkan kita tidak menggadaikan prinsip kita. Dan kita tidak zalimi rakan-rakan kita.

Dari segi hudud, adakah DAP terima?

HADI: Memang dia orang bukan Islam, tidak terima, tetapi untuk melaksanakannya dia tidak boleh halang kita. Dan dalam konteks Islam kita bukan sahaja tidak boleh paksa orang bukan Islam masuk Islam, tetapi juga termasuk dalam melaksanakan undang-undang. Dengan sebab itu, dalam undang-undang hudud, qisas dan takzir di Kelantan dan Terengganu, kita buat satu peruntukan orang bukan Islam boleh diberi pilihan sama ada mereka menerima Islam atau menerima satu cara yang lain. Kepada saya, saya yakin orang bukan Islam akan terima pada akhirnya. Jangan kita tanya perompak, tanya mangsanya. Kalau tanya perompak, perompak tak sukalah kena hukum.

Dalam Islam, kalau bunuh hukumnya bunuh. Mungkin Undang-undang barat pun sama hukum membunuh, tetapi kalau ambil harta, kalau perompak kena potong tangan, potong kaki. Kalau tanya Cina-Cina yang kena rompak tu, dia setuju kalau potong tangan, potong kaki. Kemudian ada teori mengatakan kalau kita laksanakan pada orang
Islam, orang Islam jadi kudung, jadi apa, itu tidak betul. Kita kena faham, undang-undang hudud ini undang-undang mendidik, bukan menghukum. Nak hukum payah, mendidik.

Apabila dilaksanakan, orang Melayu, orang Islam jadi moral dia tinggi. Penjenayah tidak banyak. Orang lainlah penjenayah. Ia akan jadi macam itu. Itu hikmat dia kena faham. Dengan itu kita terima kalau DAP tidak setuju, tak apalah. Yang peliknya Umno kata dia tidak setuju.

Barangkali dia anggap itu hudud ala Pas?

HADI: Kalau hudud Pas kita muzakarahlah. Kita bincang. Hudud ini ayat Quran, bukan Pas boleh buat. Pas tidak boleh reka hukum hudud ini.

Percanggahan berhubung pelaksanaan hudud antara Pas dan DAP, bagaimana dineutralisekan?

HADI: Kita neutralisekan dengan utamakan perkara yang jadi bersama. Contohnya negara berkebajikan, tolong bela rakyat miskin, tolong rakyat miskin, khidmat pada masyarakat. Rawatan percuma pendidikan percuma. Ada pendidikan swasta, dengan pengawasan dia, ini semua parti bersetuju, kita utamakan yang ini dulu. Nak laksanakan hudud itu, dia makan masa. Ini boleh dibuat. Contohnya nak hapuskan tol, Pas setuju, DAP setuju. Nak bantu kemudahan makanan kepada rakyat, semua setuju. Ini halal, ini haram, bezalah. DAP boleh makan babi, kita tidak boleh makan babi; memang kita tidak setuju dengan babi, tapi kita tidak boleh halang DAP.

Datuk Hasan Ali kata negara berkebajikan bercanggah dengan konsep Islam?

HADI: Ada kenyataan mengenai perkara itu, dia tarik balik, dia minta maaf. Sebab dalam Islam tidak disebut sembahyang Islam, puasa Islam, nikah Islam. Disebut negara, kemudian negara berkebajikan, negara adil, negara ihsan. Itu istilah-istilah yang disebut dalam Quran, tetapi dia merangkumi sekali aspek ini. Dan saya ada tulis buku, negara berkebajikan, berdasarkan huraian yang saya bentang di muktamar Pas. Dan negara berkebajikan sudah diterima di muktamar. Bila muktamar terima dia tolak, itu sudah melanggar partilah.

Berkenan hudud dilaksanakan tetapi proses tidak sebagaimana yang diharapkan? Adakah manifesto senasib?

HADI: Yang pertama, hudud pada undang-undang jenayah sudah diwartakan. Tuanku sudah sain. Sudah lulus. Yang kedua kita balik pada Perlembagaan Malaysia. Perlembagaan Malaysia kata Islam adalah agama Persekutuan. Agama ini, ada dua. Mengikut tafsiran Barat, religion. Pentafsiran Islam addin. Bila kita sudah merdeka kita kena tafsir mengikut addin, bukan religion. Addin merangkumi segala aspek, cumanya berlaku di Kelantan bila kita lulus di Kelantan, Tun Mahathir, Perdana Menteri pada masa itu, hantar surat kepada Yang Amat Berhormat Tok Guru Mursyidul Am, Nik Abdul Aziz memberi amaran sekiranya Kelantan melaksanakannya, Kerajaan Pusat akan bertindak. Bagi Terengganu tiada surat itu. Terengganu ada bantahan daripada seorang pimpinan Umno yang bukan pimpinan utama, bawa ke mahkamah, tetapi tarik balik benda itu.

Jadi kita harap, setelah gagalnya undang-undang yang diamalkan hari ini, masalah rompakan, masalah jenayah, ada negeri tidak boleh saya sebut takut malu dia, tiap-tiap hari ada kadar jenayah. Tiap hari, bukan tiap-tiap bulan; sehari ada kes bunuh. Negeri yang jumlah penduduk dia ramai di Malaysia yang gejala sosialnya lebih kerana kemajuan industrinya pesat sampai satu hari satu kes bunuh. Itu polis beritahu saya. Tak payahlah saya dedah negeri mana. Itu bahayanya; itu yang media tidak dedah, yang media dedah pun banyak dah. Walaupun yang buat jenayah itu bukan orang kita, orang luar, pendatang tanpa izin, macam-macam, tetapi kesimpulannya jenayah besar.

Kalau laksanakan undang-undang qisas dan hudud ini saya yakin Tuhan kata 'Dan bagi kamu hukuman jenayah qisas ini membawa kehidupan'.
Quran mengatakan demikian, maknanya membawa kehidupan, di sini jenayah akan berkurang dan hapusnya kes ini, membawa kehidupan kepada manusia. Yang kita ingat kalau laksana hukuman ini banyak orang kena hukum.

Barangkali oleh kerana pencuri 30,000 - 40,000 di seluruh negara dalam masa setahun. Barangkali banyak tangan kena potong. Kita fikir begitu. Bila diisytihar sahaja undang-undang ini maka habis takut mencuri, berhenti mencuri. Dia akan jadi macam itu. Di Arab Saudi, masa pemerintahan Kiya ul Aziz, dalam masa 20 tahun, tidak sampai 10 orang kena potong tangan. Mereka yang pergi buat umrah, pergi haji lihat sendiri tempat pengurup wang, sebagai contohnya, tutup dengan kain sahaja.
Pergi sembahyang, tutup dengan kain, orang takut nak mencuri, itu dia punya kehebatan. Yang pentingnya, kehebatan undang-undang; undang-undang itu hebat. Yang ada hari ini undang-undang tidak hebat, orang tidak gerun, penguat kuasa pun orang tidak gerun. Bahkan rumah polis pun dia masuk, rumah ketua polis boleh perompak masuk. Itu menandakan tidak hebat.

Dengan sebab itu, saya rasa tidak timbul terhalang. Kita tengok dululah apabila kita menang kali ini. Apa akan berlaku, respons daripada Pusat bagaimana, kita tengok.

Ada tak calon wanita di Terengganu?

HADI: Kita usaha nak tonjolkan calon wanita kerana calon kita ini mesti daripada akar umbi, daripada cawangan-cawangan dan daripada atas. Kalau daripada atas sahaja, respons cawangan tiada, tidak boleh. Kadang-kadang kita ada tokoh, tapi tokoh tu tempat dia orang tidak kenal kena, bawa tempat lain. Calon lelaki pun begitu. kita nak orang ini, contohnya, Mat Sabu Timbalan Presiden Pas, Muhamad Sabu pada 2008, tetapi boleh kalah, walaupun dia seorang tokoh yang besar. Dulu pernah di sini tahun 1950 - 1960 Parlimen Dungun, wanita, Khadijah Sidek. Di sini, pernah orang Johor, bukan Terengganu. Menang di sini, jadi calon wanita. Ini bukan kali pertama. Dan, kita ada calon wanita, kita kemukakan dan saya sebagai ahli Majlis Syura Ulama, semua nama calon dihantar ke Pusat dan ada dua tiga orang wanita di Terengganu.

(Penceramah bebas) Ustaz Azhar Idrus?

HADI: Tidak termasuk.

Nampaknya Pas pun laksanakan calon boleh menang?

HADI: Calon yang boleh menang yang cukup syarat. Dia mengikut kehendak parti kita, ikut syarat dan boleh menang. Kalau boleh menang sahaja, tapi tidak cukup syarat parti kita, kita tidak beri jadi calon.
