Kota Bharu: Menteri Besar, Tuan Guru Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat menggesa umat Islam di negara ini supaya berhujah dengan 'menggunakan fikiran' ketika berhadapan dengan pihak tertentu yang sewenang-wenang menggunakan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) bagi mempertahankan pemerintahannya.

"Ketahuilah bahawa Islam menggesa supaya menggunakan 'fikiran'. Haatuu…. burhaanakum, bukannya 'haatuu….ISA'. Tidak, tidak. Haatuu…gari tangan, tidak.

"Sikit-sikit, ISA, terutama kepada pejuang Islam dan penyokong PAS terdiri dari ulama dan tuk guru pondok, suatu masa dahulu.

"Pejuang PAS dan tuk guru Pondok ramai telah dikenakan ISA, bahkan berada dalam tahanan ISA itu sendiri tidak boleh diziarahi keluarga, tidak boleh dihubungi peguam. Punya ganas perbuatan itu, lebih daripada komunis," katanya.

Beliau yang juga Mursyidul Am PAS mendakwa demikian ketika mengkisahkan kezaliman dilakukan pihak pemerintah masa lalu terhadap ahli dan penyokong PAS di negeri ini, menguatkan tekadnya berjuang dalam PAS.

Beliau berucap pada Majlis Perasmian Sambutan Jubli Intan Maahad Muhammadi, Pelancaran Logo Jubli Intan, Penganugerahan Tokoh Jubli Intan dan Pelancaran Tabung Pembinaan Masjid Maahad Muhammadi Perempuan (MMP) di sini tengah hari tadi.

Turut hadir Speaker Dewan Negeri Kelantan Datuk Mohd Nassuruddin Daud, Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri, Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri , Ahli Dewan Rakyat dan Ahli Dewan Negara.

Hadir sama Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri Datuk Dr Zainuddin Ibrahim, Mufti Kerajaan Kelantan Datuk Mohamad Shukri Mohamad dan timbalannya Datuk Nik Abdul Kadir Nik Muhamad.

Pengarah Yayasan Islam Kelantan Tengku Azmi Tengku Jaafar, Pengetua Maahad Muhammadi Lelaki dan Maahad Muhammadi Perempuan serta Yang Dipertua Persatuan Bekas Pelajar Maahad Muhammadi (Alumni MM) Muhammad Yunan Mahmood.

Tuan Guru Nik Aziz turut mengkisahkan sejarah awal pembabitannya dalam PAS apabila dicalonkan bertanding di Dewan Undangan Negeri Kelantan Hilir melawan calon Perikatan, Tengku Noor Asiah.

Kekosongan kerusi itu kerana kematian Allahyarham Haji Mat Prai.

"Justeru, apabila pilihanraya berlangsung, saya menang dengan kelebihan 3,000 undi. Dan mulai hari itulah saya menjadi wakil rakyat sehingga ke hari ini, dan nak berhenti bila, tidak tahu," ujarnya.

Mursyidul Am PAS itu berkata, dalam perkembangan terbaru politik PAS, beliau dikunjungi rombongan kaum Cina merayu supaya beliau terus bertanding walaupun Umno BN sangat anti beliau menjadi Menteri Besar.

"Perkembangan terbaru, kaum Cina datang berjumpa saya. Mereka kata, Tuk Guru kena bertanding, menjadi Perdana Menteri dan Tuk Guru jangan mati.

"Cina tak beri saya mati. Umno tidak setuju kepada saya, tapi Cina setuju. Mereka kata, Tuk Guru jangan mati, bahkan bertanding di Dun dan Parlimen," katanya.

Beliau melahirkan kebangaannya kini menjadi Menteri Besar, dari seorang 'anak pondok' kemudian menjadi Menteri Besar dan melakukan banyak dasar negeri yang diselaraskan dengan Islam dan PAS.

Beliau telah mengarahkan supaya wang simpanan kerajaan negeri yang disimpan dalam bank yang mengamalkan riba disimpan dalam Bank Islam.

Menteri Besar turut mengarahkan penggubalan Undang-Undang Hudud yang kemudiannya diluluskan Dewan Undangan Negeri sebagai Enakmen Jenayah Syariah II Kelantan 1993.

Pada majlis itu Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat diisytiharkan Tokoh Jubli Intan, Maahad Muhammadi. -HD

'Menteri Besar budak pondok'

KOTA BHARU- Menteri Besar, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat melahirkan rasa bangga kerana pendidikan beliau berasal dari sekolah pondok, sekali gus membuktikan sekolah pondok mampu melahirkan pemimpin.

Beliau turut mengimbas semula pendidikan awalnya di beberapa pondok di Kelantan dan Jetih, Terengganu, termasuk di Jamek Merbau (kini Maahad Muhammadi), seterusnya di Universiti Al-Azhar, Mesir dan Universiti Deoband Darul Ulum, India.

"Saya bangga jadi Menteri Besar, budak pondok yang pernah dihina 'budak pondok, budak agama, pandai buat gapo (apa).

"Saya hanya pandai baca talkin, solat hajat dan baca doa, tetapi dilantik jadi Menteri Besar," katanya ketika berucap merasmikan Sambutan Jubli Intan 75 Tahun Maahad Muhammadi di Jalan Merbau, di sini.

Nik Abdul Aziz berkata, selain menjadi pemimpin dari sekolah pondok, beliau juga gemar menggunakan bahasa 'balaghah' (iaitu bukan bahasa persuratan).

"Bahasa ini digunakan sebab terikut-ikut dengan ajaran tok guru dan ketika belajar pondok di Jetih, saya turut belajar asas bahasa Inggeris," katanya.

Dari segi pengalaman dan penglibatan politik (menjadi wakil rakyat), beliau mahu menjalankan hukuman hudud dikenakan kepada pesalah semasa timbul isu pada pilihan raya kecil di Terengganu.

Selain itu, beliau mampu menangani masalah riba di Kelantan, misalnya pajak gadai ditukar kepada ar-Rahnu.

"Sejak jadi Menteri Besar, saya turut menukar beberapa nama tempat dan lokasi termasuk PCB, dahulu Pantai Cinta Berahi, sekarang jadi Pantai Cahaya Bulan, Bazar Buluh Kubu kepada Pasar Siti Khadijah (nama isteri Nabi).

"Saya juga minta Majlis Perbandaran Kota Baharu-Bandar raya Islam (MPKB-BRI) letak nama jalan di Pengkalan Chepa tukar kepada nama 'jalan Tok Guru', tetapi dipertikaikan," katanya.

Katanya, tok guru itu bukan bermaksud Tok Guru Nik Aziz, tok guru boleh membawa maksud 'Tok Selehong', Tok Kenali atau tok guru pondok.

Pada majlis berkenaan, beliau turut dilantik sebagai Tokoh Jubli Intan Maahad Muhammadi Kota Bharu.

Isu Tanah Masjid Bayan Mutiara: Ludah UMNO Yang Terkena Ke Muka Sendiri

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 08:30 AM PDT

NNGO: Tanah masjid Bayan Mutiara hilang silap Umno

NGO Kongres Melayu Pulau Pinang hari ini mendakwa Umno merupakan pihak bertanggungjawab dalam memastikan bahawa tanah masjid di Bayan Mutiara tidak dijual kepada pemaju.

Presidennya Rahmad Isahak berkata, Umno yang menyertai pentadbiran Pulau Pinang sebelum ini sepatutnya telah memastikan bahawa tanah berkenaan dipecahkan kepada lot selepas pelan fasa 1 projek tersebut diluluskan majlis perbandaran pada 2006.

Katanya, Umno tidak bertindak untuk menggazetkan tanah berkenaan dalam tempoh satu tahun lima bulan, sebelum Pakatan Rakyat mengambil alih pentadbiran negeri itu pada 2008.

Rahmad mempersoalkan tindakan yang dilakukan Umno untuk memastikan bahawa tanah itu dipecah lot untuk dimilik Majlis Agama Islam Pulau Pinang (MAIPP), memandangkan pelan yang diluluskan itu kini telah tamat tempoh.

Mengikut undang-undang, pejabat tanah tidak dapat mengeluarkan geran milik tanah kepada MAIPP, atau untuk memindahkan milikan tanah itu sekiranya tidak dipecah kepada lot, katanya.

"Apa yang telah Umno lakukan daripada 2006 hingga 2008, sebelum negeri itu diambil alih Pakatan Rakyat.

"Di mana bukti undang-undang bahawa tanah itu telah digazetkan dan dipunyai MAIPP seperti didakwa Umno," kata bekas kakitangan mahkamah itu lagi. -mk

A new shelther for a single mother with 4 children

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 06:40 AM PDT





Instead of going to the street to hand out Carnation flowers in conjunction of International Women's Day like he did on previous years, YB Wong Hon Wai decided to have a more meaningful event this year to mark the occasion. He chose to visit single mothers whom he has once assisted to check on their present personal well-being…
As reported in The Star

A single mum in dire need

IT'S hard to raise children nowadays and it's even harder if you are a single parent.

Gan Mi Mi, 36, lost her husband Au Kong Soon, 50, in August last year and she is now a mother and also a 'father' to four young kids, aged one to 11.

Besides having to feed her kids, Gan also has to pay RM350 in house rental for her low-cost flat in Bandar Baru Air Itam, Penang.

Her plight caught the attention of State Town and Country Planning, Housing and Arts Committee chairman Wong Hon Wai who managed to find a new home for the family.

She is now staying in the Rifle Range flat in Penang where she has to pay only RM110 in rental per month.

"I hope to continue staying here till I'm old. It's convenient here," she said with tears flowing down her cheeks.

Gan is unable to work as her kids are still very small. Two of them are studying in SJK(C) Sin Kang in Air Itam.

She lives on donations from family and friends, her husband's SOCSO money and the RM400 aid from the Welfare Department.

Wong visited her recently in conjunction with International Women's Day and also gave books and stationery to the children.

"With a new shelter, I hope it would help to ease her burden," he said.

單親媽媽滿意入住打鎗埔組屋‧"很方便下樓就買到食物"

北馬

2012-03-10 16:35

(檳城)"我很高興住這裡,希望可以繼續住下去……我沒有交通工具,住這裡很方便,下樓就可以買食物了。"

住在打鎗埔的顏美美(36歲)哭著向前往探訪她一家的檳州房屋委員會主席黃漢偉,訴說她的心願。

定期交租就不會被迫遷

為此,黃漢偉為顏美美派定心丸,他說,只要定期交租金,大致上房屋局是不會要她搬走。

去年,顏美美的丈夫周康順因患上鼻咽癌,也曾透過女兒周慧敏就讀的新江小學發動籌款活動,此事也引起該區州議員即黃漢偉的關注,後者也撥款協助周家。

後來,周康順在同年8月病逝,而顏美美一家也在黃漢偉的幫助下,於去年12月搬入打鎗埔的一個2房單位。

黃漢偉配合國際婦女節的到來,於昨日(9日)和太太林素萍前往探訪該家庭,並給予他們鼓勵。

黃漢偉:複雜環境激勵孩子更懂事

黃漢偉說,打鎗埔的環境較複雜,但孩子也因此會更懂事。

"我也是在打鎗埔長大的孩子,以前一起走路上學的同齡孩子後來也成為醫生和工程師。"

他說,顏美美一家之前在發林新市鎮租房子,每個月租金達350令吉,這筆數目對只依賴福利金和親友援助的家庭來說是一個很沉重的負擔,因此該委員會也給予顏美美特別津貼,讓一家大小以每個月110令吉租下打鎗埔一個2房單位。

他表示,根據市價,這些2房單位的租金大約300令吉。


Inspektor Polis Antara 9 Ditahan Kes Culik

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 06:43 AM PDT

Shah Alam - Sembilan individu termasuk seorang Inspektor Polis ditahan bagi membantu siasatan berhubung kes culik seorang pengurus projek di tapak pembinaan di kawasan perindustrian Seri Kembangan 22 Mac lalu.

Ketua Polis Selangor, Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah berkata, sembilan suspek berumur antara 26 dan 48 tahun itu ditahan di Kajang dan Rawang semalam sebaik mangsa dibebaskan pada pukul 6.30 pagi hari yang sama.

Pegawai polis berusia 43 tahun itu, yang mempunyai rekod jenayah lampau telah digantung kerja sejak tahun 2010, katanya pada sidang akhbar di Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen Selangor di sini, hari ini.

Beliau berkata polis turut menemui semula wang tebusan sebanyak RM275,850 dan merampas beberapa buah kereta, antaranya Proton Gen 2, Honda Odyssey dan Proton Waja, sebuah motosikal, sebuah treler, parang, topeng, kad Touch n Go dan Smart Tag daripada suspek.

"Kami hanya menemui semula RM275,850 daripada sejumlah RM300,000 yang dibayar oleh bapa mangsa," katanya.

Lelaki berusia 34 tahun itu diculik pada 22 Mac semasa dalam perjalanan untuk meninjau tapak pembinaan di Seri Kembangan. Laporan polis mengenai penculikan itu dibuat oleh bapa mangsa pada pukul 11 pagi hari yang sama mangsa diculik.

Suspek membawa mangsa ke Rawang dan mengurungnya di sebuah rumah di sana.

Mereka kemudian meminta wang tebusan sebanyak RM1.5 juta, dan jumlah itu dikurangkan kepada RM300,000 selepas berunding dengan bapa mangsa, yang juga rakan kongsi perniagaan dengan anaknya.

Tun Hisan berkata tiga daripada sembilan lelaki terbabit, termasuk pegawai polis itu mempunyai rekod jenayah lampau.

Kesemua suspek ditahan reman sehingga 7 April bagi membantu siasatan, katanya. – Bernama

Ulasan GB

Pertama GB ucapkan tahniah kepada Polis kerana menahan penjenayah yang salah seorangnya adalah anggotanya sendiri. Tindakan tidak memilih bulu tersebut wajar mendapat pujian.

Kedua ia mengesahkan apa yang GB tulis sebelum ini adalah BENAR. GB pernah ulas begini:

Kejadian jenayah menjadi-jadi di kalangan anggota PDRM kerana ada menteri dan pegawai polis sendiri yang membelanya - bahawa bilangan anggota polis yang melakukan jenayah adalah kecil berbanding jumlah anggota PDRM keseluruhannya. Begitu juga kenyataan KPN menyatakan cuma 1% polis yang terlibat dengan jenayah.

Sindrom memberikan alasan sedemikian amat-amat tidak wajar kerana ia persis menggalakkan lagi perbuatan jenayah dan salahlaku polis yang sepatutnya bertindak membenteras jenayah - tetapi kini, mereka sebenarnya penjenayah.

Sebelum ini GB sudah ulas di dalam kes seorang anggota polis ditahan kerana merogol pelajar tingkatan 5 di dalam balai polis. Petikan:

Semakin banyak kita temui kisah polis merompak, mengugut, membunuh, merogol dan melakukan hal-hal mengejutkan yang menyebabkan jenayah terus berleluasa kerana ia dilakukan oleh orang yang ada pistol...

Dalam balai polis pun boleh berlaku kejadian rogol. Apakah ini juga bererti perempuan jangan dekati balai polis?

Atau semua balai polis perlu letak signboard besar-besar, "KAMI JAMIN TIADA PEROGOL & PENJENAYAH DISINI!" supaya orangramai berani ke Balai Polis?


Sekali lagi ingin GB tegaskan, kita tidak bermaksud untuk orang membenci polis, tetapi perbuatan polis itu sendiri mengundang kebencian rakyat terhadap mereka.



Launch of PFS Bicentenary celebrations

Posted: 31 Mar 2012 07:05 AM PDT

The Penang Free School Bicentenary Celebrations were launched officially by a distinguished Old Free, Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Jamalullail, the Raja of Perlis, at a gala dinner function at the E&O Hotel, George Town on 31 March 2012.

 Tuanku is a military man but he was looking suspiciously at the cannon. Was it the real thing?

 Well, the only way to find out is to pull the lever, right?

So here goes...

Boom! Only paper confetti? 

Mightily relieved that the cannon turned out to be a fake, after all....

A moment of reflection.

[UNIK] Pelajar-pelajar Tahfiz Kelantan Khatam Quran Atas Keretapi

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 05:17 AM PDT

Wakaf Bharu – Pusat Pengajian Tahfiz al-Quran Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Yatim Kelantan (Peka Yatim) mencipta sejarah tersendiri apabila pelajarnya khatam al-Quran di atas kereta api.

Seramai 26 pelajar hafiz dari pusat pengajian tersebut menyahut cabaran sempena program Journey By Train 'Al-Quran Rahmatan Lil A'Lamin apabila mereka perlu khatam 30 juzuk al-Quran di atas kereta api tersebut.

Pengetuanya, Ahmad Hilmy Ahmad berkata, kesemua pelajar menaiki kereta api di Wakaf Bharu ke Johor dan di dalam perjalanan tersebut mereka perlu khatam 30 juzuk al-Quran.

"Mungkin dalam masa dua jam setengah pelajar hafiz ini dapat khatam al-Quran 30 juzuk secara beramai-ramai," katanya ketika ditemui di stesen kereta api Wakaf Bharu.

Pengarah Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat (JKM) Kelantan, Md Nor Chik hadir merasmikan perlepasan pelajar hafiz tersebut menaiki kereta api.

Seramai 12 pegawai pengiring merupakan kakitangan pusat tahfiz mengiringi pelajar tersebut.

Ahmad Hilmy berkata, program ini mampu memberi suntikan semangat, merasai perjalanan sambil menikmati pemandangan melalui gerabak kereta api.

Program selama dua hari itu turut diisi dengan lawatan sambil belajar ke negeri Johor apabila mereka dibawa ke tempat yang menarik.

Seorang hafiz, Mohd Idris Mohamad, 11, berkata, dia teruja untuk mengikuti program ini yang ada kelainannya apabila memerlukannya khatam al-Quran di atas kereta api.

"Ini adalah khatam al-Quran yang pertama kali dalam hidup saya, mudah-mudahan saya berjaya menyahut cabaran ini," katanya yang baru empat bulan mengikuti pengajian di Pusat Pengajian Tahfiz al-Quran Peka Yatim yang terletak di Desa Rahmat, Jalan Guchil Bayam, Kota Bharu.

Menurutnya, dia sempat belajar di Sekolah Kebangsaan Raja Bahar hanya di darjah empat sahaja kerana berminat untuk menjadi seorang hafiz.

"Di sini saya belajar al-Quran, tajwid, dan menjadi seorang hafiz," katanya.

Bagi Syafiqa Haikal Zulkifli, 13, berkata, dia yakin dapat khatam al-Quran di atas kereta api nanti.

"Sekarang ini saya mengaji al-Quran di juzuk 27, dan berharap dapat khatam 30 juzuk sempena program ini," katanya yang kematian ayah sejak tujuh tahun lalu. -SH


Almost Sunset At Taylor’s University

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 02:10 AM PDT

Almost Sunset At Taylor's University – I am now back to the big city of Klang Valley (or common to others Kuala Lumpur), I don't really get to see nice sunrise and sunset by the beach like I get to when I was in Penang. You know Klang Valley is a valley, the nearest shore with sandy beach is an hour away, Sepang Gold Coast, that's far!

Almost Sunset At Taylor's University

Well, the sunrise and sunset seeing is now in the city. Recently, I just got back my Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens from the service centre, to try out this very-long-didn't-use lens, I took my tripod and went to the highest floor at Taylor's University to take photos of the sunset. It was not near to dusk yet, it's almost sunset.

Almost Sunset At Taylor's University

At the hall way of Block E, level 8.

Nice clear blue sky after some super heavy rain which caused the Klang flood, but then the clear sky didn't result in a round egg yolk style sunset, I realised round egg yolk sun only visible during hazy day. Nevertheless, those few shots were satisfying, I'm gonna go discover more nice location to see sunrise and sunset.

Almost Sunset At Taylor's University
Crane at Taylor's University, heard there's a construction of multistory carpark is on going.

Almost Sunset At Taylor's University
What a nice sky and sun.

Please introduce me too, perhaps go to Port Dickson for sunset watching. =D


KBB'gate' - why Anwar hates the subpoena

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 02:32 AM PDT

This e-mail from Beruang Biru is worth read. I don't know who the writer is but he/she has been sending me series of 'sensational' comments of late. After a minimal editing, this is the refreshed version:

"If we are to count the number of summons made by Anwar to certain individuals within these years, it is simply mind blowing. What I meant mind blowing is the number of summons and the amount (of money) Anwar demanded.

"This alone shows that Anwar seems like a man who obeys the law and would only refer to the court if he feels that someone made defamation statements against him.

The keyword here is obeying the law. But in matters of attending to court as a witness for a civil suit between a businessman Low Thiam Hoe and Hong Leong Bank, Anwar was seen to be holding his laugh. Bernama reported that the lawyer for plaintiff D Paramalingam followed Anwar for two days at the Parliament but he still failed to hand over the summon to Anwar.

The first day was because he could not find Anwar. He did find Anwar on the second day but Anwar refused to accept the summon.

Another person mentioned in the case, Tan Sri Quek Leng Chan received the subpoena but will apply to reject it. Why can't Anwar do the same thing, makes it look weird. With legendary lawyers around him, why is it so hard for him to simply take the subpoena and apply to reject it?

This matter reminded writer to the subpoena that was made by Anwar's lawyer to the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife during the case where Anwar was accused of sodomising Saiful Bukhari. The Prime Minister received the subpoena but then rejected it.

What did Anwar and his 'gang' said back then? Najib was a wuss, right? Now Anwar would not even take the subpoena, what should we call him? Chicken?

The same thing happened with the RM100 million summon he filed against Datuk Nallakarupan and Utusan Malaysia. Up to now, there is still no sign of the writ of summon that was supposed to be handed to the two defendants that he stated.

How can they proceed with the trial if the writs are still not there? Why is he scared?

It is believed that all this proofs that Anwar is not really interested to obey the law. He just want to be seen as a person that really 'obeys the law' when the fact is, he is more interest in abusing the process of law so that he could reach his ambition - to become the next Prime Minister.

The issue of KBBGate is not a small matter. A total of RM445 million was paid for a transaction that never took place. Anwar must respond to this.

The RM445 million is part of rakyat's money as the government paid the bank that amount as an effort to restore our economy during the economic crisis from year 1998 to 2000. It was also meant to strengthen the banking sector as they did not have the capacity to provide loans during that time.

By comparison, that value of money is not the same in 1998 and the present time. Umno must also investigate the matter. Before Anwar puts the blame on the party, we need to be very careful here. Anwar was Umno deputy president when the 'transaction' took place'..."


Kamilia vs Shahrizat: Mad cow disease must leave!

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 02:32 AM PDT

By Yow Hong Chieh
April 01, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 1 — Wanita Umno vice chief Datuk Kamilia Ibrahim has defended her decision to call for Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil's resignation, saying she did not wish to see the wing carry a "diseased" member to the polls. 
She had earlier asked Shahrizat to quit as Wanita Umno chief after the senator insisted she would continue to lead the 1.3-million strong wing despite relinquishing her Cabinet post following the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal. 
However, the duo then agreed to cooperate after peace talks with party leaders including president Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his deputy Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. 
But in an interview published by Utusan Malaysia's weekend edition today, Kamilia (picture) said that while it was important for Wanita Umno to show unity in the face of public attacks, "true solidarity" meant resolving critical problems together and not sweep them under the carpet. 
"An obstacle needs to be dealt with and not just left to be. In war, if someone in the squad has a disease that can spread and may cripple the team, do we insist on bringing them to the battlefield?" she said when asked by Mingguan Malaysia why she did not back Shahrizat. 
"Do we want all out team members to fall sick and die or do we quarantine the sick individual first until they recover so the team can advance to the battlefield? We as Wanita Umno need to know the true meaning of solidarity," she added in the interview. 
The Kuala Kangsar division chief stressed that unity within Wanita Umno needed to be tempered by a clear objective, in this case, to win in the next general election which must be called by April next year. 
She said that while it was necessary for the wing to show solidarity and strength, it should not ignore problems especially if they involved a key leader and could threaten the party's chances at the polls. 
"In this matter, Wanita needs to clean its image so it does not appear as though it is embroiled in controversial issues," she told the Umno-owned paper. 
She added that it was not her intention to split the wing but was acknowledging a problem that needed to be fixed. 
"Unfortunately, there are some in Wanita who do not wish to listen to explanations, don't want to accept and understand the actual problem," she said. 
Shahrizat announced on March 11 that she would step down as women, family and community development minister when her term as senator ends on April 8. 
The announcement came after months of being dogged by allegations she and her family had abused a RM250 million federal loan meant for a cattle-rearing project to finance personal expenses. 
Her husband Datuk Seri Mohamad Salleh Ismail, who heads the National Feedlot Corporation (NFCorp) with their three children, pleaded not guilty on March 12 to criminal breach of trust in relation to the alleged misuse of RM49 million in public funds. 
The veteran politician, however, said she would remain as head of Wanita Umno despite previous calls from Kamilia and other senior party leaders — including Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad — to quit the post. 
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has insisted that Shahrizat does not have to resign as Wanita Umno chief as there was no proof or charge of wrongdoing in the NFCorp scandal. 
The Umno president also said he had met with Shahrizat and Kamilia and that the duo had agreed to cooperate despite the latter's repeated calls for Shahrizat to relinquish leadership of the wing. 
"Both leaders will cooperate fully after this as a united team. They will work effectively together as a team," he had said.


Di Nibong Tebal Bendera PAS Dibakar, Di Tanah Merah, Petugas Bendera BN Mati Terbakar

Ahli kesal bendera Pas kena bakar

NIBONG TEBAL – Seluruh ahli Pas di kawasan Nibong Tebal melahirkan perasaan kecewa dan kesal apabila bendera milik parti politik itu dibakar oleh pihak tidak bertanggungjawab.

Dalam kejadian yang berlaku selama dua hari berturut-turut itu, sembilan daripada 20 bendera Pas yang dipasang pada 24 Mac lalu telah dibakar dengan masing-masing empat pada 29 Mac, manakala lima lagi pada 30 Mac lalu.

Difahamkan, 20 bendera berkenaan dipasang di sebuah rumah ahli Pas di Tanjung Berembang bertujuan menjadikan rumah terbabit sebagai Bilik Gerakan Unit Peti Undi Pas Tanjung Berembang, di sini.

Yang Dipertua Pas kawasan Nibong Tebal, Abdul Rahman Ramjan, berkata, kejadian terbabit disedari oleh salah seorang ahli Pas pada awal pagi 29 Mac lalu.

"Kita amat kecewa dan kesal dengan apa yang berlaku. Kami percaya pada hari itu (29 Mac) ia dilakukan sekitar jam 3 pagi sehingga jam 5 pagi kerana sebelum waktu itu kami melihat keadaan bendera masih elok.

"Kami sangka kejadian itu akan berakhir pada malam berkenaan sahaja, namun jangkaan kami meleset kerana ahli Pas kawasan ini sekali lagi dikejutkan dengan kejadian sama pada 30 Mac. Kali ini, bendera Pas dibakar lebih awal iaitu sekitar jam 8 malam dan seorang ahli Pas menyaksikan sendiri kejadian terbabit," katanya.

"Perbuatan berkenaan dipercayai dilakukan oleh beberapa remaja lelaki, bagaimanapun mereka sempat melarikan diri selepas seorang ahli Pas menjerit sejurus melihat tindakan itu," katanya.

Abdul Rahman berkata, pihaknya tidak mahu menuduh sesiapa yang menjadi dalang di sebalik perbuatan itu, tetapi hanya menyerahkan kepada pihak berkuasa untuk menyelesaikannya.

Menurutnya, pihaknya percaya, tindakan yang dilakukan oleh mereka tidak bertanggungjawab itu merupakan perbuatan terdesak kerana ramai anak muda kini mula bangkit menyertai parti politiknya.

"Ini merupakan kali pertama kejadian bendera parti dibakar dan berharap pihak polis akan segera menangkap dalang di sebalik tindakan terbabit.

"Meskipun bendera Pas ini dibakar, ia tidak mematahkan semangat ahli Pas malah kami akan menjadikannya sebagai pembakar semangat untuk terus berjuang dalam pilihan raya ini," katanya.

Abdul Rahman turut memberitahu, pihaknya akan mengerah semua ahli untuk menjadi jentera penggerak sebagai persediaan bahang pilihan raya di samping terus memantau agar perbuatan tidak bertanggungjawab itu tidak lagi berulang.

Sejurus kejadian itu, Setiausaha Pas Kawasan Nibong Tebal, Nor Zamri Latiff bersama Ketua Penerangan Pas Kawasan Nibong Tebal, Nazir Arshad telah membuat laporan polis di Balai Polis Nibong Tebal supaya tindakan yang sewajarnya dapat dikenakan kepada pihak tidak bertanggungjawab terlibat. -SH

Globalization and assessing development in Malaysia - K.S. Jomo

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 01:28 AM PDT

During the 5th Malaysian Student Leaders Summit (MSLS) in July 2011, the Connectwork team interviewed Jomo Kwame Sundaram who was one of the 3 panelists for the Economy session.


Jomo Kwame Sundaram, known as Jomo, is a prominent Malaysian economist who has served as the United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development in the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) since 2005. Jomo is a leading scholar and expert on the political economy of development, especially in Southeast Asia, who has authored and edited over a hundred books and translated 12 volumes, in addition to writing many academic papers and articles. He is on the editorial board of several journals.

Q. Having studied and taught at the best universities in the world, what would you say is the disparity between the education systems over there and here in Malaysia? As a leading public intellectual, what do you think can be done to improve the Malaysian education system – to make it up to par with those top-notch universities?

I think one of the good things that can be said about Malaysia as far as education is concerned is that the government and the public spend a great deal on education. They take education seriously, so the question is not about the question of desirability of education. There is a strong popular interest in improving the quality of education. Having said that however, unfortunately, there is a broad perception that education standards have deteriorated over the years and sometimes quantitative achievements have overcome qualitative concerns. There is also the question of language; and how to deal with the question of language. There is a bit of a hypocrisy; both of a political nature and otherwise. This too is a very serious problem.

Most importantly, I feel that the whole question of education; the education of achievement is usually seen in terms of a few people reaching international standards, rather than an effort to lift the entire population. Rather than have "western" – in the sense of UK or American or other models as inspiration – I think that we should examine countries like Finland. Finland has relatively a small population but also a population where the Nordic people are strong and good. There has been a steady improvement in the education system so that it has been possible to transform Finland from essentially producing lumber for export into a society which can produce Nokia and a whole range of high-tech products. This was achieved largely through a very focussed commitment, within a space of one generation. Given the strong commitment and interest of the government as well as the public, given the high amount of resources which are allocated in education, such reforms can be achieved. The approach currently being undertaken in terms of bringing about reforms are in my view problematic and are unlikely to achieve the kinds of achievements which you have in places like Finland.

Q. What made you leave academia for the public sector? How did you get involved in your current profession?

It was basically indicated to me by my employer that it was in my best interests to leave and I felt that I was not interested in fighting a petty battle so I decided to leave. Having said that I don't harbour any grievances as such. It gave me the opportunity to join the United Nations where I developed over time a different skill-set and where I feel that it has been possible to contribute to a different audience. But in some ways it's more consequential to some extent, because many of the things I was saying in Malaysian society had very little impact. We do not have a society that reads a a lot. We do not have a society which engages in debate over issues which matter. In a sense it has been rewarding to engage in my current work.

Q. The World Bank in a report has highlighted that the biggest hurdle for Malaysia at the moment is "brain drain" – our best and brightest are leaving or have left our shores and in the process deprived the country of its most important asset and also tool to help it achieve developed nation status. Do you agree with this view, and if so, what is your recommendation on what we should do about this? Are there other challenges apart from the brain drain?

As of many other occasions, I find that the World Bank's analysis is rather one-sided and very minimalist. Part of the reason, first of all on the World Bank is that, Malaysia has been rather obedient people, and has been following what the World Bank has been advocating, and stumbled from one problem to another. One of the biggest problems we find in the world today is that the very premise for a lot of Malaysian development policies over the last few decades is being undermined: We thought that globalization would continue, and now we find increasing protectionism. We thought that FDI would be denied. The FDI is basically in the business of trying to maximize its profits, so on and so forth. The presumption was that FDI will motivate local investments when in fact, the evidence is to the contrary – it is the domestic investments which actually induce FDIs to the company.

We have also seen the situation where it has been very difficult to bring about public sector reform. To ensure that the state-hold enterprises basically achieve national objectives, and national objectives which are beyond the NEP. Unfortunately, you have a generation of businessmen and politicians who can only think in terms of an NEP-type discourse. They do not think very much about where economic growth and development is going to come from, they're mainly interested in redistribution issues. So you can presume that there will be endless amounts of revenue available for redistribution. And so they fight largely for that.

But there are much more fundamental issues which we together with many other developing countries face, which unfortunately are not being addressed. This I think is the sad part.

So the World Bank's emphasis on brain drain – I'm not suggesting that there is no brain drain, but to suggest that this is the most fundamental problem seems to be a big exaggeration. We had one time, for example, in Korea about a decade ago; there were 20,000 unemployed PhD holders. So even though you had great number of Koreans emigrating, you also had a great number of Koreans in Korea who were not being well-utilized. Did anybody consider that a problem of brain drain? I seriously doubt it. I'm not suggesting that there's no problem of brain drain, but I think to isolate that as the most important issue which we face today, or to isolate what we call the middle-income country trap as the major issue, is in my view very shortsighted and not very helpful.

Q. Lastly, how pressing do you think is it to address our particular challenges in light of our current and future position, when compared to other economic giants in the region (like Singapore, China, and Indonesia)? What are your predictions for where Malaysia will stand when stacked against these economies in ten to fifteen years time?

I think we're talking about very diverse economies, and our challenges and our relations with these economies are very different, so I wouldn't prescribe any single answer. And I think it's also very misleading to see ourselves principally in competition only with our neighbors. The fact of the matter is that the world is much more globalized now when it was even three or four decades ago, and one needs to understand the world as a whole. Of course some of the competition is with our neighbors, but it may not necessarily be so.

One of the big problems between Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia is that Northeast Asia has developed much more: it has industrialized much more, it has strong entrepreneurial communities. Southeast Asia, generally speaking, has not industrialized as much. And part of the reason is the privileged position given to FDI. But there are other reasons as well: Our society for example is very fractious, we are fighting all the time among the ethnic groups, etc and instead of focusing on common challenges where we should be uniting to face the world together, and this I think is a very debilitating problem.

But having said that, I think there are very specific challenges which one needs to face, for example: How do we stay ahead in the palm oil game- what can be done, how much value can be added? You have a world, for example, that is very understandably concerned about global warming. How is it possible to develop for example, bio-reserves from palm oil as a significant alternative? The Malaysian palm oil producing capacity is probably exhausted. But if we are able to reap on this further downstream value-added technologies, we will be in a position to provide the technology – not only for Indonesian palm oil for example, but also West African palm oil, which is expected to become more significant in the years ahead. We should be looking at such opportunities for strengthening our industrial base.

Sunday, 1 April

The days meld into one another nowadays, and I can't tell one day from the next.

I do have a tear-away calendar, and every morning as I tear away yesterday's page, I say out loud the day and the date: "Today is Sunday; April 1st." Anyone listening in on me will think me quite bonkers. Who's to say he-she-it's wrong, eh?

For some reason, I cannot remember if I've brushed my teeth today. I run my tongue over my teeth and they feel clean and smooth and nice! Hahahahah! But I remember getting out of bed in a rush this morning, because I knew the dogs needed to be let out: yesterday, the patio was swarming with termites, and they couldn't go out for their last-pee-of-the-day, so I thought they'd need an extra early wake-up-call today. So, that's why the rush - but did I come back in and brush my teeth after I'd changed out of my pj's? That's the question. Ahh, nevermind already. I'll just brush them again. Right after this.

I'm almost three-quarters' through Margaret Atwood's The Robber Bride. I loved it from the first line, but I couldn't figure out just why it was titled the way it is: until I just turned to this chapter called... yes, you guessed it: The robber bride. Well, I guess even she knows that her readers must've been wondering why. Hahahaha!!!

Whenever I read something, I will ponder at whether my daughter will enjoy reading it, too. I really don't think she'll enjoy this one, seeing as it's about three women who're about her mothers age. She doesn't much care for my taste in books - though, to be fair, not many people would. I am into murder and gore and dissecting people from top to toe. But, our tastes overlap when it comes to period pieces: she loves things set in old England; all things set in the time of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I; but it diverges where she likes real-life stuff about the holocaust, and other miseries that really happened. I'm not into stuff like that, and it pains me to read it.

Just minutes ago there was a hissing coming from somewhere in the kitchen, and I set my head at an angle, my ear to the fore, trying to find the source of the hiss. At first, I thought it was our fridge, and I wondered at what could've been broken and how much it would cost to fix!

But, it isn't the fridge - it's our water-filter thingy and one of the canisters is busted. Our water pressure is just too high - so it must have gushed through the pipe and blown out the plastic valve. Sigh. Luckily, my trusty-live-in plumber is on it!!! He's removed the broken canister and is off to the shops: hoping to find it open, even though it's Sunday, April 1st. Yay!!! I remembered!!!  Nice :)


Nigerian beaten to death by 7 RELA members

Posted: 01 Apr 2012 12:38 AM PDT




Killing is wrong, it doesn matter which country we are from. The news title is obviously trying to mislead.

This will only gets worse if no diplomacy rule taken. Police should thread this matter carefully and get assistance from the government and the Nigerian Embassy. Seriously, if this gets out of hand, Malaysian will again be in the international medias for all the wrong reasons.

I don't deny the Nigerians have been such a nuisance, but nobody hates more than injustice from authorities and causes a colleague's death. Our own media seems to be aggrevating the matters too. The newspapers claimed that the 200 angry mobs are carrying knifes and metal rods, but based on the pictar it looks more like they're unarmed, unless of course you consider their limbs as weapons.

P/S: No komen! Al Fatihah sahaja yang mampu diucapkan. Tempat berlaku ini hanya 500 meter sahaja dari rumah saya. Dah riuh rendah satu bandar Tanah Merah. Malam tadi keluar berita tv3 dua rakan maut sebab pasang sebuah bendera parti politik. Kenapa tak terus terang cakap pasang bendera dacing. Wallahu'alam.

Betul juga kata Halimislam. Kenapa sembunyi "fakta" bahawa mereka itu petugas BN?

Jikalah yang terkena itu adalah petugas PR, mungkin sudah kecoh seluruh media massa arus perdana dengan segala macam mak nenek ulasan untuk mempersalahkan PR!

Kini, dengan tolak tepi sentimen parti, semua petugas yang memasang bendera, wajar berhati-hati agar tragedi di atas tidak berulang lagi.

Apabila hukum Islam tidak dilaksana, malah dihina, apatah lagi oleh pemimpin negara, maka terimalah bala bencana.



Sekarang semua tahu apa jawapannya. Keadaan huru-hara dan maksiat bermaharajalela kerana undang-undang Islam dilaksanakan atau telah dihinakan sedemikian rupa oleh pemimpin tertinggi negara?

"Apabila maksiat sudah merajalela di kalangan umatku, Allah akan menurunkan siksa dari sisi-Nya kepada mereka secara merata…" -HR. Ahmad dll

Apabila Allah s.w.t. dicabar, ia adalah permulaan kepada satu sistem pemerintahan yang baru. Kelak, Allah s.w.t. akan menggantikan mereka itu dengan satu kepimpinan yang lebih baik.

Khabarkan kepada JAIS supaya menasihati Najib usah hina dan persendakan hukum Allah.


Breaking News: New Canine-Feline Hybrid

Posted: 31 Mar 2012 08:27 PM PDT

Early this morning, scientists at Liger University released a statement reporting the discovery of a here-to unknown species that appears to be a dog-cat hybrid. (Finally, cat people and dog people with something in common!) The animal was discovered living in a small colony in caves near Lyon, France, apparently subsisting on bats. A local woman who saw the scientists emerge with one of the new species, for now being referred to as "dat," was reported as exclaiming, "Agh! C'est un monstre!". Reactions are mixed, however; the university has reported being besieged by calls from individuals interested in adopting a dat.


UPDATE: near relative of dog/cat hybrid "dat" discovered in neighbouring village. For now it is being called "cog."
