Suhaila Menderita Mempunyai Dua Rahim & Satu Buah Pinggang

Suhaila Menderita Mempunyai Dua Rahim & Satu Buah Pinggang


Suhaila Menderita Mempunyai Dua Rahim & Satu Buah Pinggang

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 10:30 AM PST

Bantulah saya selamatkan Suhaila...

SUHAILA sebelum ini merahsiakan apa yang dihadapinya. Bila sakit menyerang, dia lebih suka berkurung dalam bilik.

Apabila kerap bersembunyi berjam-jam, kami semua mula menyedari ada sesuatu yang tidak kena. Dan saya pula pada awalnya hanya menganggap Suhaila hanya seng­gugut setiap kali datang bulan.

Tetapi apabila mendapati setiap bulan Suhaila menanggung sakit sampai menangis, saya bawa dia jumpa doktor.

Pada awal pemeriksaan, doktor mengesahkannya sebagai kencing kotor. Tetapi, kesakitan yang ditanggung Suhaila membuatkan saya nekad mendapatkan khidmat pakar.

Kata pakar, anak saya perlu dibedah segera kerana ada ketumbuhan. Tetapi apabila pembedahan dilakukan, doktor terperanjat apabila mendapati Suhaila mempunyai dua rahim dan satu buah pinggang.

Doktor menasihatkan saya membawa Suhaila ke hospital kerajaan supaya kes ini dapat dirujuk di sana.

Bagi mengurangkan rasa sakit, Suhaila diberikan ubat tahan sakit. Setiap hari pula, Suhaila perlu diberikan ubat perancang kehamilan, bagi mengelakkannya datang haid.

Mendapat maklumat daripada seorang teman tentang pakar perubatan di Hospital Universiti Sharjah, Dubai berjaya melakukan pembedahan kepada seorang kanak-kanak perempuan 13 tahun, yang mempunyai kes sama seperti Suhaila, hati ibu ini berbunga riang.

Sebagai ibu saya sentiasa berfikiran positif. Walaupun tahu ada risikonya, tetapi saya yakin dengan kuasa ALLAH. Segalanya akan berjalan lancar, dan anak saya akan sembuh seperti sedia kala.

Lebih baik saya mencuba daripada tidak melakukan apa-apa untuk Suhaila.

Setelah menjalani dua pembedahan, rahim Suhaila kini semakin membesar. Jadi, pembedahan segera perlu dilakukan. Namun dana untuk membiayai pembedahan Suhaila yang dijadual 22 Mac ini belum mencukupi.

Saya masih buntu memikirkan kaedah bagi mendapatkannya sebelum berlepas ke Dubai 19 Mac ini.

Pembedahan segera perlu dibuat bagi menyelamatkan nyawa anak saya.

Hasil sumbangan orang ramai, tiket kapal terbang untuk kami berdua sudah dibeli. Ada pelbagai pihak yang akan mempertimbangkan sumba­ngan bagi meringankan beban tanggungan kos pembedahan itu, namun jumlahnya masih tidak cukup.

Pastinya ada yang berta­nya mengapa perlunya pembedahan di luar negara. Kes Suhaila masih baru dalam sejarah perubatan negara. Jadi di sini belum ada kepakaran.

Pihak hospital memak­lumkan, kajian terhadap penyakit ini memakan masa sebelum pembedahan membuang rahim yang gagal berfungsi itu boleh dilakukan. Kelewatan membuat pembedahan hanya akan mendedah­kan Suhaila kepada risiko.

Bagaimanapun, saya kini berdepan dengan masalah mendapatkan surat sokongan daripada hospital bagi mengesahkan penyakit yang dihadapi Suhaila. Ketiadaan surat itu menyebabkan bantuan dana membiayai kos perubatannya terbantut.

Sebelum ini, Lembaga Zakat Selangor akan mempertimbangkan dana RM35,000 bagi membiayai pembedahan Suhaila, namun masih belum diputuskan kerana ketiadaan surat sokongan daripada hospital kerajaan.

Saya sangat berharap kekangan mendapatkan surat sokongan daripada hospital dapat disegerakan bagi menye­lamatkan nyawa Suhaila.

Tolonglah! Permu­dah­­­kan­­­l­­ah usah saya ini. Bantulah saya selamatkan nyawa Suhaila!

All Doom And Gloom For Our Wildlife - SAM

All doom and gloom for our wildlife


S M Mohd Idris
5:16PM Feb 28, 2012


Poaching, hunting, trapping and snaring of our endangered wildlife are frequently featured in the news these days.

The
situation has reached a climax especially for wildlife with high
commercial value although almost all animals are killed from fish to
wildlife for food and trade.

Poaching is rampant with poachers


For All The Wrong Reasons

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 07:53 AM PST

International Women's Day falls on March 8, but the women who have made recent headlines in Malaysia do so for the wrong reasons.

They include self-styled 'First Lady' Rosmah Mansor, the Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, the ladies of the Obedient Wives Club and the Tourism Minister Dr Ng Yen Yen, whose latest brainwave is to turn taxi drivers into "tourism ambassadors".

Perhaps, one of the taxi drivers should replace the high commissioner in London.

Last week, Ng (right) said: "After they have been selected by our appointed judges, the taxi drivers will be undergoing a one-day awareness course organised by the ministry where we will explain to them their role as tourism ambassadors."

When Jean Todt, the husband of ex-Bond girl Michelle Yeoh, was made a Malaysian 'tourism ambassador', he received an annual fee of RM593,000 and an allowance of RM388,000 towards his holidays in Malaysia.

Will the taxi drivers, our "tourism ambassadors", be given similar financial incentives? Or do "gwai lohs" get preferential treatment?

Ng wanted to improve the attitude of taxi drivers and be rid of shoddy practices, like the refusal to use meters, which many locals and tourists had complained about. So will they be satisfied with just a fancy title?

She also wanted to promote Malaysia as a duty-free shopping destination and praised the '1Malaysia GP Sale' which promised 'bargains-galore' for shoppers from March 10 to April 15.

If only Ng could persuade our self-styled 'First Lady' to make Malaysia her 'buyer's paradise'. Whenever Rosmah is overseas, it is her shopping exploits which overshadows the Prime Minster Najib Abdul Razak's visits.

When she went to Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh in January 2011, the secretive First Lady of Malaysia department received so much attention that Najib appeares to have shut it down. Gone was the pink tinged website that used to grace the official PM's website.

Rural people lack basic infrastructure

If only the victims of domestic violence, incest and teenage pregnancies could receive as much attention as the assorted coloured handbags and multi-million ringgit gems that adorn the First Lady's podgy wrist and fingers.

Rosmah's receipt of an honorary degree for education from Curtin University in Australia became a viral sensation on Facebook. In the past, Curtin was embroiled in the sex for degrees scandal; but one would not dream of associating impropriety with honorary degrees.

It must be nice receiving honorary degrees, unlike the children from the Orang Asli community or the indigenous peoples of East Malaysia, where receiving basic schooling is problematical.

Rural schools are poorly maintained and transportation is a problem. Despite the wealth from timber, oil and gas, these rural communities lack basic infrastructure. Curtin University would do well to find out the reasons these places are poorly funded and come up with solutions.

Many of us are barely surviving with the increase in food prices, petrol prices, toll charges and utility bills. It is worse for rural communities. Farmers struggle to feed their families and they spend even less on their livestock.

Animals receive reduced amounts of fodder and some may not receive veterinary care.

Spending taxpayer's money comes as second nature to most ministers and Shahrizat Abdul Jalil's family showed a great deal of finesse, when they made good use of a RM250 million loan meant for the National Feedlot Corporation project.

With great aplomb, they bought a string of luxury condominiums, a pilgrimage and the latest Mercedes-Benz car.

For many farmers, home is a wooden shack, transportation is a dilapidated truck and dreams of going on the haj, remains just that- dreams. At least Shahrizat has a choice of houses. The homes of the Penan, which are located on ancestral lands, are now under water.

Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud's vision of building mega-dams means that the interior has to be flooded to generate cheap electricity which his new aluminium smelters, will devour.

It is commendable that Shahrizat was able to protect her husband and her three children, unlike the parents of the Penan girls who were raped by loggers in the Sarawak jungles.

The women and children have nowhere to go and no-one to whom they can turn for help. They have been called "good storytellers" and "liars who often change their stories".

If only Taib's young wife, Ragad Waleed Alkurdi, would waddle out of her palatial home ground to enquire why these Penan women are angry. They have been stripped of their lands, an education and also their dignity.

Malaysian women certainly know how to grab the attention of the foreign media - like the titillating details of the Obedient Wives Club's graphic sex manual.

No-one (in the west) appears to be interested in our corruption, tainted judiciary, violent thugs, radioactive waste and baby dumping, but sex sells. Especially deviant sex!

Despite setting a quota of 30 percent women in decision-making roles in government and industry, Najib has failed miserably in empowering women. With just Shahrizat and Ng as ministers, Najib's cabinet is not female friendly. Both women are seriously flawed.

If only capable women were in positions of responsibility, the country might not be in such a state. But then why should men care? The rules are made by men, for men.

Naturally, it is hard to talk about improving the country when the women who should be good role models are busy promoting designer handbags and rings, or collecting cows and condos.

Zhouzhuang: Last Exploration & Back Shanghai

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 06:00 AM PST

Click here to read more about my China Trip.

China Trip – Zhouzhuang 周庄 : Last Exploration & Back Shanghai (Day 3) – Well, it's my last few hours at Zhouzhuang. Sunrise – done; Boat ride – done and now it's the last exploration of this beautiful ancient water town in China before heading back to Shanghai in the afternoon. We checked out the inn, bought our stuffs with us and we went to walk around again, this time according to the map of attractions.

We visited house of ancient famous people – Shen Wan Shan, which I have no idea who he really was (I don't think he was famous, so I did not bother), then we went to a Chinese poet shop and asked the poet to write us a few poems derive from our name. This one is kinda cool, as in Zhouzhuang, you will see many shops, offering to write you a Chinese poem with your name in it, it's actually not a specialty at there, but then it's just a way of making money for them. We found it kinda interesting, so we gave our name for the poet, and he wrote us some Chinese poems. It's pretty cool. It's only 10RMB per poem, why not? We've got addicted with the poem writing and in the end, we have so many poems with my name, brother's, my girlfriend, brother's girlfriend, mom and dad, and even dad's business. =D

Later then, we found a Chinese opera house, unfortunately no opera was showing at there, it's like a museum, a Taoist temple, Mao Tse Tong's musuem, some local shops and that's all. We went back to the bus station, bought a bus ticket or 25RMB to go back to Shanghai. Instead of heading back to Shanghai South Station, we went to Shanghai Main Railway Station. The journey took longer than 2 hours this time because of traffic congestion in Shanghai. At there, we took the Shanghai Metro to go back to our hotel, take a rest, then explore again. Fun! Shanghai was so much warmer, at 6 degree celcius.

OFA coffee table book, part 18

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 04:13 AM PST

D-26 days. We just completed a marathon four-and-a-half hours' long meeting of the editorial team today, meant to wrap up the layout of The Old Frees' Association's coffee table book, Fidelis. Yup, it's confirmed: Fidelis will run to 208 pages!

It was a good meeting. We have decided on the cover of the book, finalised the articles that will appear, justified the order in which the essays on the Old Boys will appear (very important, this!), chose all the pictures for the book and met with the printers. The best news is that the messages from the Raja of Perlis and the Chief Minister have been received: the CM's this morning and from the Palace in Arau in the afternoon.

Of necessity, I shall have to keep today's entry short because I'm going to rush out soon to the hypermarket for some shopping of home essentials. Have neglected this to the point where provisions are running extremely low! Then later, to start consolidating the proof-reading....

Amerika Lebih Takut Ahmedinejad Kalah Dalam Pilihanraya Presiden Iran

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 06:58 AM PST

Pilihanraya presiden Iran: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad jauh ketinggalan

TEHERAN: Undi terbaru menunjukkan mereka yang setia dengan pemimpin ulama Iran, menang 75 peratus kerusi dalam pilihan raya parlimen, menjadikan calon Presiden Mahmoud Ahmadinejad semakin sukar untuk menentang puak konservatif.

Keputusan undi Jumaat lalu, sebahagian besarnya dipulau oleh golongan reformis yang pemimpin mereka masih dikenakan tahanan rumah, tidak akan memberi kesan yang besar terhadap dasar luar Iran, termasuk pertikaian nuklear dengan Barat.

Namun begitu, ia akan memberi kelebihan yang ketara kepada kem Pemimpin Tertinggi Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei dalam pilihan raya presiden, pada 2013. Kekalahan besar penyokong Ahmadinejad mungkin akan menghakis kuasa presiden, yang diapi-apikan oleh sekutu Khamenei kerana ia telah mencabar kuasa pemimpin tertinggi dalam pemerintahan Iran yang berlapis-lapis itu.

Dengan 90 peratus daripada peti undi yang dikira, penyokong Khamenei dijangka menduduki lebih daripada dua per tiga daripada 290 kerusi dalam Parlimen, menurut senarai yang diterbitkan oleh Kementerian Dalam Negeri. -Reuters

Ulasan GB

Walaupun Amerika takut dengan kemenangan Ahmedinejad, namun kekalahan Ahmedinejad lebih menakutkan dan mengerikan Amerika kerana yang menang ialah kem Pemimpin Tertinggi Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei yang lebih ketara dan keras prinsipnya terhadap Amerika.

MBAS Beri Amaran Kepada Pihak Yang Turunkan Kain Rentang Iklan Surau

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 05:52 AM PST

Jangan bertindak sendiri'

ALOR SETAR - Majlis Bandaraya Alor Setar (MBAS) tidak membenarkan orang awam mengambil tindakan sendiri termasuk mengoyak papan iklan kerana perbuatan berkenaan menyalahi undang-undang.

Datuk Bandar MBAS, Datuk Mat Noh Ahmad (gambar kecil) berkata, walaupun papan iklan itu tidak mempunyai permit kelulusan namun mereka tidak boleh berbuat sesuka hati kerana masih bawah bidang kuasa MBAS.

Menurutnya, selalunya dalam kes melibatkan iklan haram MBAS akan merampas papan iklan berkenaan termasuk menurunkannya sehingga pemilik datang menuntut semula termasuk membayar permit sebelum boleh digantung semula.

"Kita tidak akan merosakkan papan iklan berkenaan kerana soal permit dengan kos pembiayaan iklan berkenaan berbeza dan pemilik boleh mengambil tindakan termasuk membuat laporan polis sekiranya iklan mereka dirosakkan untuk menuntut ganti rugi.

"Perbuatan merosakkan papan iklan itu akan menyebabkan pemilik terpaksa menanggung kerugian," katanya kepada Sinar Harian.

Sinar Harian Jumaat lalu melaporkan, Badan Bertindak Selamatkan Madrasah Salihiah (BBSMS) membantah tindakan pemaju Aman Central menaikkan papan iklan memaparkan gambar surau baru bersebelahan Madrasah Salihiah kerana dianggap boleh menimbulkan kekeliruan orang ramai.

Pengerusi BBSMS, Mansor Ahmad berkata, mereka mula menyedari kewujudan papan iklan itu sejak seminggu lalu dengan menjangkakan ia mendapat kebenaran MBAS bagaimanapun setelah dirujuk papan itu dinaikkan tanpa mendapat kelulusan pihak berkuasa tempatan (PBT) .

Mengulas mengenai kejadian itu, Mat Noh berkata, beliau tidak mengetahui tentang perkara berkenaan. -SH


Bantah pemaju letak iklan surau

ALOR SETAR - Tindakan pemaju Aman Central menaikkan papan iklan yang memaparkan gambar surau baru bersebelahan Madrasah Salihiah dianggap sebagai satu provokasi untuk menimbulkan kekeliruan orang ramai.

Pengerusi Badan Bertindak Selamatkan Madrasah Salihiah (BBSMS), Mansor Ahmad berkata, mereka mula menyedari kewujudan papan iklan itu sejak seminggu lalu dengan menjangka ia mendapat kebenaran Majlis Bandaraya Alor Setar (MBAS).

Bagaimanapun, setelah merujuk dengan MBAS, ternyata papan iklan itu dinaikkan tanpa mendapat kelulusan pihak berkuasa tempatan (PBT) itu serta menimbulkan perasaan kurang senang dalam kalangan anak kariah.

"Tindakan pemaju, Belleview Sdn Bhd, jelas dilihat menghina dan mengganggu perjalanan proses pengurusan mahkamah memandangkan isu saman injuksi Madrasah Salihiah masih dalam proses dan akan disebut semula pada 11 Mac ini di Mahkamah Tinggi Alor Setar.

"Saya membuat laporan di ibu pejabat polis daerah Kota Setar pada 8.47 pagi semalam meminta mereka membuat siasatan mengenainya," katanya kepada media di Madrasah Salihiah, Tambang Badak di sini, semalam.

Mansor turut kecewa dengan Kerajaan Negeri kerana membenarkan pemaju bertindak sedemikian. Sungguhpun begitu, mereka akan terus berusaha mempertahankan tanah wakaf serta bangunan surau dari dirobohkan.

"Kami kesal pemaju dilihat sengaja meletakkan papan iklan bersebelahan Madrasah Salihiah kerana ia bukan dalam kawasan tapak cadangan pembinaan surau baru itu yang terletak hampir 13 meter dari madrasah ini.

"Difahamkan gambar reka bentuk surau baru yang tertera pada papan iklan berkenaan baru sahaja dihantar kepada MBAS pada 18 Januari lalu dan masih belum mendapat kelulusan," katanya.

Sehubungan itu, mereka meminta MBAS lebih sensitif terhadap papan iklan dan papan tanda haram yang boleh mengganggu proses perbicaraan berlangsung di mahkamah, terutama berkaitan dengan Madrasah Salihiah.

"Kami tidak mahu orang ramai terpengaruh dengan gambaran kosong mengenai surau baru pada papan iklan itu," katanya.

Nahas Kereta Api Terburuk Di Poland - 16 Maut 60 Cedera

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 04:16 AM PST

Warsaw(Poland): Pasukan penyelamat berhempas-pulas sepanjang malam untuk mengeluarkan mereka yang terselamat daripada bangkai kereta api yang terlibat dalam satu kecelakaan kereta api di Szczekociny, Poland, kelmarin.

Kecelakaan itu menyebabkan 16 orang mati dan hampir 60 yang lain cedera, termasuk seorang yang dalam keadaan serius.

'Saya boleh sahkan 16 kematian. Kami baru sahaja menarik keluar seorang mangsa daripada bangkai kereta api tetapi kita tidak boleh menolak kemungkinan ada mangsa lain setelah keseluruhan bangkai diperiksa,' kata jurucakap khidmat kecemasan di Szczekociny, Encik Pawel Fratczak.

Tambahnya, operasi menyelamatkan mereka yang cedera sudah pun berakhir.

Ketika tiba di tempat kejadian, Presiden Poland, Encik Bronislaw Komorowski, berkata beliau akan mengumumkan tempoh perkabungan seluruh negara setelah operasi menyelamat selesai.

Sementara itu, Perdana Menteri Poland, Encik Donald Tusk, menyifatkan kecelakaan itu sebagai bencana paling buruk sejak 20 tahun lalu.

Selain rakyat Poland, warga Ukraine merupakan antara mereka yang tercedera, sementara warga Perancis dan Sepanyol, yang turut menaiki kereta api itu terlepas daripada sebarang kecederaan.

Sejumlah 350 penumpang berada di dalam dua kereta api yang terlibat dalam kecelakaan itu.

Menurut syarikat kereta api PKP, kedua-dua kereta api bertembung pada 9 malam (waktu tempatan) kerana kedua-duanya menggunakan landasan yang sama.

Satu kereta api sedang dalam perjalanan ke bandar selatan Krakow dari ibu kota Poland, Warsaw, sementara yang satu lagi dalam perjalanan dari Warsaw ke bandar tenggara, Przemysl.

Gambar-gambar nahas oleh saluran berita komersial, TVN24, menunjukkan bertan-tan besi remuk, dengan laporan menyatakan selain daripada kepala kedua-dua kereta api, sekurang-kurangnya tiga gerabak tergelincir dari landasan.

'Kami terdengar bunyi yang memekakkan dan kami tercampak dari kerusi. Kami nampak mayat terhempap di bawah kerusi dan beberapa mayat dengan sebahagian badan di luar kereta api dan sebahagian lagi di dalam gerabak,' kata salah seorang penumpang yang terselamat kepada agensi berita PAP Polish.

'Ia sangat mengerikan. Skala kemusnahan sangat besar,' kata salah seorang anggota bomba yang pertama tiba di tempat kejadian.

Sejumlah 450 anggota bomba dan 100 anggota polis terlibat dalam kerja-kerja menyelamat, kata jurucakap pasukan tindakan kecemasan.

Kemalangan kereta api kelmarin merupakan nahas kereta api paling buruk di Poland sejak 1990.

Dalam nahas pada 1990, 16 orang terbunuh apabila dua kereta api bertembung di kawasan luar bandar Warsaw, Ursus. -- AFP.




Desecration on UK Commonwealth World War Cemetery in Benghazi

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 05:47 AM PST

I hope PAS marches this Friday to condemn this infamy, yep when pigs fly-edit! Benghazi: "A year ago they begged for Britain's help," and now they desecrate British war graves. That was the Daily Mail's observation today. The excuse du jour, once again, is the irrational fit of rage over the Qur'an burnings: "The violence was thought to be retaliation, in part, for the burning of the Koran by US soldiers in Afghanistan last month."



Never mind that it was not even British forces who were involved in the incident. Once again, this is a rampage finding its excuse, as the attitudes and inclinations to wreak havoc and destruction when offended preceded the excuse seized upon for doing so.

We have also already seen a growing, demonstrative hostility in Libya to shrines and graves even of minority Muslim sects. The video and report show that this rampage was far more about the crosses (and a Star of David) in the cemetery than anything else. Hat tip: Jihad Watch and Lt Col (Rtd) Idris: "What a shame, so much for helping liberate Libya. At least Gaddafi for what ever he represented ensured all who gave their lives for peace and freedom rested in peace".


Pakatan should learn from Daim

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 03:15 AM PST

Tun Daim Zainuddin is not a person who lies about what he feels. He also does not simply shower other people with words of compliments, and neither will he hide his sentiments over anything.

The former Finance Minister and Economic Adviser to the Government (during Tun Dr Mahathir's era) was honest when lauding Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib's administration, that the latter is ready to charge Malaysia forward.

"If you differentiate the characteristics of the two leaders, Anwar (the Opposition Leader) and Najib, you will be inclined to give higher marks to Najib, how in my view, has benefited a lot as a son of Tun Razak," he told Mingguan Malaysia yesterday.

As a leader, he described Najib as having a sharp mind in everything, and that gives give him the advantage against Anwar, who joined the Umno Youth long after Najib.

I agree. Just like Mukhriz, Najib has been observing how his father administered the government. Fast learning from it, he has developed his own capability to improve what his father and the prime ministers before him did.

Daim also shot down suggestions that Malaysia (under Najib) will go bankrupt by 2020 over its huge foreign debts.

The country's debt is manageable, Daim said, adding that the government is taking the prudent approach in managing its debt and in ensuring the economy stays vibrant.

It was a downright statement from a former Finance Minister.

I think Anwar and his team should learn from Daim. Although he was also a Finance Minister, Daim's economic management comes second to nothing. Anwar was just taking feeds from his aides then.

Kesemua Akur Dan Patuh Arahan PAS Pusat Tapi...

Posted: 05 Mar 2012 03:26 AM PST

Exco: Phahrolrazi, Ismail akur keputusan PAS Pusat

KUALA LUMPUR, 5 Mac: Isu pergolakan kerajaan negeri Kedah selesai apabila Timbalan Pesuruhajaya PAS Kedah, Ir Phahrolrazi Zawawi dan Dr Ismail Salleh akan menyertai semula barisan Exco kerajaan negeri.

"Matlamat saya sudah tercapai, saya akan sertai semula Exco," kata Phahrolrazi kepada Harakahdaily.

Ketika ditanya, apa matlamat itu, Phahrolrazi berkata, beliau mahu pentadbiran negeri Kedah dijalankan secara berjamaah.

"Dengan penubuhan Jawatankuasa Pemandu, ini bermakna akan ada pihak yang memantau pentadbiran negeri," kata beliau lagi.

Dr Ismail Salleh pula ketika dihubungi berkata, beliau juga menerima baik keputusan PAS Pusat dan akan menyertai semula exco sebagaimana yang diarahkan.

"Kami buat baru-baru ini macam kamikaze untuk meminta pimpinan memberikan perhatian kepada apa yang berlaku di Kedah ini. Sekarang semua dah beri perhatian dan mekanisma pentadbiran juga dibentuk melalui Jawatankuasa Pemandu, kami akan sertai semula exco selepas diarahkan," katanya kepada Harakahdaily.

Beliau memberi jaminan akan bekerja bersungguh-sungguh untuk memperkuatkan PAS dan menjatuhkan Umno di negara ini.

"Kami tidak ada niat lain melainkan untuk kepentingan jamaah. Kami bukan nak jadi Hasan Ali. Tok Guru Haji Hadi tok guru kami, ustaz kami. Kami hormati mereka," kata Dr Ismail yang bersama Phahrolrazi tidak mengangkat sumpah exco baru-baru ini.

Kedua-dua mereka mengulas keputusan PAS Pusat yang menubuhkan Jawatankuasa Pemandu untuk memantau semua kerajaan negeri yang ditadbir dan disertai PAS.

Keputusan itu dicapai dalam mesyuarat Jawatankuasa PAS Pusat di Alor Setar awal pagi semalam.

Meyuarat itu diadakan selepas pertemuan muhibbah PAS Pusat dan PAS Kedah yang diadakan sebelum itu iaitu mulai jam 10 malam Sabtu hingga jam 3.00 pagi semalam.

Pagi ini, di Kuala Lumpur, Setiausaha Agung PAS, Datuk Mustafa Ali mengumumkan keputusan mesyuarat JK Pusat di Alor Setar semalam.

"Dalam mesyuarat tersebut kita telah memutuskan bahawa Datuk Seri Diraja Azizan Razak akan meneruskan tugasnya seperti biasa sebagai Menteri Besar.

"Selain itu juga kedua-dua exco perlu kembali dalam Exco Pentadbiran Negeri Kedah.

"PAS akan menubuhkan satu JK Pemandu untuk membantu negeri-negeri yang PAS tadbir dan negeri yang PAS sertai," jelasnya ketika bercakap pada satu sidang media di Pejabat Agung PAS pagi ini. -HD

Ismail tolak exco jika tiada 'perubahan pentadbiran'

Exco kerajaan negeri Kedah Datuk Dr Ismail Salleh berkata, beliau tidak akan menerima lantikan semula jawatannya selagi tiada penambahbaikkan dalam 'pentadbiran' negeri pimpinan Datuk Seri Azizan Razak.

Katanya, perubahan perlu dilakukan memandangkan pelbagai masalah-masalah dalaman yang telah timbul.

"Jika perubahan tidak ada, saya tidak akan terima (jawatan exco). Perubahan mesti dilakukan," katanya ketika dihubungi Malaysiakini hari ini.

"Saya nak perubahan tertentu dalam pentadbiran negeri. Saya juga mahu (PAS) Pusat ambil perhatian terhadap masalah yang kami hadapi.

"Dah lama benda ini kami sebut tapi tidak buat apa-apa. Jadi kami ini seolah-olah 'kamikaze' untuk perkara ke arah kebaikan."

Walaupun enggan mengulas sama ada beliau merujuk supaya menteri besar diganti, Ismail berkata, isu berhubung "orang yang mentadbir" perkara kedua.

Ditanya lagi sama ada Azizan perlu meletakkan jawatan, Ismail berkata, terpulang kepada kepimpinan Pusat PAS untuk membuat keputusan.

"Kami sudah beritahu apa yang kami tidak puas hati. Bergantung pada Pusat untuk menilai. Kalau perlu (letak jawatan), buat. Pusat lebih layak buat keputusan," katanya.

Setiausaha Agung PAS Datuk Mustafa Ali pagi ini berkata, Ismail dan seorang lagi exco Datuk Phahrolrazi Zawawi perlu menerima semula jawatan mereka kerana sudah diputuskan dalam mesyuarat khas di Alor Setar pada Sabtu lalu.

Marah sebab tak faham

Selain itu, Ismail menjelaskan, apa yang dilakukannya ini bukanlah sebagai tanda kecewa terhadap parti tetapi demi kebaikan.

"Saya harap orang faham apa yang saya buat. Ada orang yang marah dengan tindakan saya ini. Saya anggap mereka tak faham. Bila tak faham, mereka marah.

"Saya bukan kecewa dan saya bukan kejar jawatan. Apa yang saya nak ialah perubahan ke arah lebih baik. Untuk perubahan yang baik itu payah dan yang susah itu kami pilih.

"Saya cuma mahu pertahanankan Kedah pada pilihan raya akan datang dan seterusnya ke Putrajaya " ujarnya.

Ismail dan seorang lagi exco Datuk Phahrolrazi Zawawi (kanan) dijadual mengadakan sidang media di Alor Setar hari ini bagi mengumumkan tindakan lanjut mereka.

Azizan: Saya patuh arahan Pas Pusat

ALOR SETAR - Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak akur pada keputusan muktamad pimpinan Pas Pusat berhubung kemelut pelantikan Exco Pas, yang menetapkan kedua-dua Exco terlibat, Datuk Ir Phahrolrazi Zawawi dan Dr Ismail Salleh yang sebelum ini menolak tawaran dilantik semula bagi penggal 2012/2013.

Azizan yang juga Pesuruhjaya Pas Kedah berkata, selaku pemimpin tertinggi Pas Kedah dan negeri, beliau perlu mematuhi arahan yang diputuskan oleh Pas Pusat.

"Saya ikut sahaja apa jua keputusan dalam mesyuarat yang diputuskan Pas Pusat, termasuk arahan yang dikeluarkan. Pada awal lagi, bukan saya yang buang mereka, tetapi mereka yang tidak mahu," katanya, ketika dihubungi, semalam.

Berdasarkan keputusan yang dicapai selepas pertemuan melibatkan semua pihak di kediaman rasmi Menteri Besar, di Seri Mentaloon, malam kelmarin, Pas Pusat memutuskan Azizan kekal sebagai Menteri Besar sehingga Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU13), Phahrolrazi dan Ismail kembali sebagai Exco dalam pentadbiran negeri selain menubuhkan sebuah Jawatankuasa Pemandu Pas Pusat untuk memantau dan memberi pandangan kepada negeri-negeri diterajui Pas dan negeri-negeri di mana Pas adalah sebahagian daripada pentadbiran negeri tersebut.

Azizan turut menyerahkan sepenuhnya kepada Pas Pusat untuk berbincang dengan kedua-dua Exco berkenaan sekiranya, selepas arahan dikeluarkan, timbul masalah lain membabitkan mereka.

"Jika selepas ini pun, mereka masih enggan ikut arahan yang ditetapkan Pas Pusat, saya nak buat macam mana. Selepas ini, saya serah pada Pusat untuk uruskan, lagipun isu ini sudah diambil sepenuhnya oleh Pusat dan mereka akan pantau apa yang berlaku," katanya.

Dengan nada sedih, Azizan berkata, "Saya tak kelahi dengan sesiapa pun, tetapi orang yang cari gaduh dengan saya."

Azizan bagaimana pun berkata, buat masa ini beliau belum berhasrat untuk mengadakan sidang media khas berhubung isu ini. -SH


Ulasan GB

Kamikaze?

Niat yang baik tetapi kaedah yang salah (sehingga jemaah menjadi porak-peranda) tidak menepati akhlak jemaah.

Anehnya semua tak mahu diasosiasikan dengan nama Hassan Ali, tapi cara dan tindakan Hassan Ali itulah yang diikutinya.

Dewan Ulamak PAS Pusat perlu lebih proaktif selepas ini supaya semua ahli jemaah khususnya peringkat "pemegang jawatan" diberikan tarbiyah sewajarnya.

Ketara di dalam isu Kedah ini ada ahli peringkat pimpinan sendiri tidak mengethaui kaedah tanzim di dalam jemaah.


Halt Umno’s Horrific Hubris!

Halt Umno's Horrific Hubris! 
By Martin Jalleh

Umno has drastically "changed" into a haven of
Hired thugs, ruffians, rowdies and rogues,
Hoodlums, hell-bent on creating havoc,
Hecklers, harassers, haranguers, hustlers, and
Herds of goons, goblins and gangsters!

The Umnoputras have become increasingly
Haughty and superior low-life creatures,
Hardcore pornography producers and purveyors,
Hoaxsters, hackers and haters and
Head honchos of ugly, gutter politics!

After 66 years, Umno can proudly boast of
Hypocritical leaders who hoodwink their own race,
Humbug ministers with endless hype on reform,
Hedonistic elites, corrupt, rotten to the core and
Half-past-six ministers with hollow promises!

As its political survival hangs by a thread, Umno has
Hijacked the independence of key civil institutions,
Handed out handsome, hefty sums to bribe a nation,
Heedless, that we are headed for bankruptcy
Hard hit by the heaviest debt in the nation's history!

Umno's Home Minister even gives a free hand to its
Henchmen so adept at honing a siege mentality,
Hordes of high-handed "little Napoleon mullahs",
Hassan Alis, Harussanis, bigoted "heroes" and
Hideous editors spewing sedition so brazenly!

Umno's hemorrhaging can also be seen in parliament
Hostile MPs abuse their unabashed brute majority,
Histrionics, hysterics are now a hallmark of Umno YBs,
Hogwash, half-baked answers are hollered in reply and
Heavy-handed actions by the Speaker complete the circus!

The world is equally humoured by Umno's PM who
Holds his faltering image high with stunts and slogans,
Harps on unity whilst Umno divides, rules, dominates,
Hobbles, whilst puppeted by Dr M, the defacto PM and
Hums "change" whilst hemmed in by Umno's hardliners!
