P125 Putrajaya: Husam Musa Jauh Lebih Layak & Lebih Berwibawa Dari T. Adnan

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 10:59 AM PDT


Putrajaya kawasan berprestij, Husam lah yang secucuk sebagai wakilnya

Pertembungan diantara Husam Musa dan Tengku Adnan di kawasan Parlimen Putrajaya dalam PRU ini amat menarik bagi diri saya untuk membuahkan sedikit komen. Awal-awal bicara saya ini, saya terus terang berkata kalaulah benar-benar pengundi di Putrajaya mahukan seorang wakil yang betul-betul mempunyai 'attribute' sebagai seorang wakil yang betul, maka Husam lah orangnya. Jika kita mahukan seorang yang 'colorful' dengan berbagai-bagai isu, maka Tengku Adnan lah yang betul.

Husam seorang Naib Presiden PAS dan tidak mempunyai apa-apa warna yang menjadikan beliau seorang yang boleh dipersoalkan. Berbeza dengan T Adnan, Husam tidak mempunyai isu yang membabitkan perjudian atau isu salah laku korporat yang menjejaskan imej sebagai seorang ahli Dewan Legislatif bagi kawasan yang berprestij seperti Putrajaya itu.

Jika kita benar-benar memilih mengikut markah keperibadian, Husam sememangnya jauh lebih bersesuaian untuk mewakili rakyat Putrajaya. Segala-gala yang ada pada Husam itu semuanya 'natural' dan tidak ditempelkan dengan imej-imej palsu seperti yang ada kepada Tengku Adnan.

Hanya satu yang lebihnya T Adnan dari Husam, iaitu T Adnan banyak wang ringgitnya. Tengku Adnan mempunyai banyak bisness yang besar-besar dan semua bisness beliau itu adalah dari kedudukan beliau dalam UMNO selama ini sehinggalah jawatan beliau sebagai Setiausaha Agong UMNO.

Tengku Adnan berbuat bisness dengan taikonya Vincent Tan. Tengku Adnan lebih takut kepada Vincent Tan dari pimpinan tertinggi UMNO itu sendiri. Kita boleh campurkan satu dengan satu atau dua dengan dua, kita tahu kenapa Vincent Tan begitu berpengaruh dalam kerajaan dan UMNO itu sendiri.

Justeru jika rakyat Putrajaya mahukan wakilnya seorang yang seperti T Adnan ini maka Tengku Adnan lah patut dipilih. Tetapi di sebaliknya jika kita mahukan seorang wakil Legislatif yang berwibawa dengan keperibadian yang segar secucuk dengan imej Putrajaya sebagai kawasan induk negara ini, maka Husam Musa lah orang yang paling tepat dan sesuai untuk mewakili pengundi di Putrajaya. Dari segi kemanusiaannya Husam adalah seorang yang secara relatifnya jauh lebih lengkap dari lawannya itu.

Saya yang merupakan pengundi di Kuala Pilah tidak dapat memberikan undi kepada Husam. Jika undi boleh dikirim seperti kita mengirim undi dalam rancangan Akademi Fantasia, saya akan menghantar undi kepada Husam Musa sebanyak yang mungkin kerana sokongan terhadap Husam tidak boleh di abaikan jika kita mahukan perubahan.

Husam perlu diberikan sokongan samada dengan kerja tubuh seperti berkempen dan merayu undi atau usaha yang lebih mulia iaitu untuk bermohon terus kehadrat Allah SWT. Pengundi-pengundi Putrajaya wajar menjolok rahmat dari Allah SWT agar Putrajaya mendapat seorang wakil yang berprestij imejnya dan jernih wajahnya.

Saya berdoa agar Husam sentiasa berada di dalam keredhaan Tuhan Maha Esa. -aspanalias


BN gelabah, indikator jelas Putrajaya dah goyang


Sumber Umno memberitahu Harakahdaily pertandingan yang paling dirisaukan para pemimpin tertinggi Umno-BN kali ini ialah Putrajaya dan Gelang Patah.

Persaingan kerusi di Putrajaya, katanya, semakin memihak kepada calon PAS iaitu Datuk Husam Musa, Naib Presiden PAS.

"Umno-BN gelabah sehingga mengenakan pelbagai tekanan pada penjawat awam di sana untuk menghindarkan mereka menghadiri ceramah Husam. Tapi semakin ditekan, semakin ramai penjawat awam yang setiap hari bertanya mengenai sambutan ceramah Husam.

"Ramai tak? Berapa ramai? Itulah soalan yang ditanya tiap-tiap malam oleh penjawat awam yang tidak berani hadir ceramah Husam kerana takut dikenakan tindakan oleh ketua jabatan," kata sumber Umno itu.

Semalam, Husam melahirkan rasa sedih dan kecewa dengan satu maklumat yang diterimanya berhubung ada AJK di sebuah surau di Putrajaya dipecat berkuatkuasa serta merta hanya kerana membenarkan beliau mengadakan majlis suai kenal di surau tersebut.

"Saya mohon pada semua sahabat-sahabat yang baru saya kenali di Putrajaya, penduduk-penduduk Putrajaya dan seluruh rakyat negara Malaysia yang beragama Islam berdoa mohon kepada Allah supaya budaya politik sempit begini ditamatkan pada 5 Mei ini," katanya.

Beliau berkata situasi itu menyebabkan mood perubahan warga Putrajaya semakin meningkat.

Menjawab persoalan Harakahdaily mengapa Umno harus gelabah di Putrajaya sedangkan itu kubu kuat mereka, sumber Umno itu menyatakan kerana mood di ceramah Husam sungguh memberi inspirasi ke arah perubahan.

"Sesiapa saja hadir akan terpukau dan akan tergerak hatinya untuk mengundi PAS dan Pakatan Rakyat kali ini," katanya lagi.

Sumber Umno itu turut menyatakan bahawa pengerusi BN Datuk Seri Najib Razak dan Mahathir bakal bertandang ke Putrajaya tidak lama lagi untuk menyelamatkan calon mereka Setiausaha Agong Umno Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.

"Muhyiddin dah turun ke Putrajaya dan terus serang Husam. Selepas ini Najib dan Mahathir akan datang menyerang Husam, itulah indikator Putrajaya dah goyang," katanya.

Hasil kajian yang dikeluarkan Pusat Kajian Pilihan raya dan Demokrasi Universiti Malaysia (UMCEDEL) yang menyatakan populariti Najib lebih rendah berbanding Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dalam siapa lebih layak menjadi Perdana Menteri telah memberikan keyakinan untuk penjawat awam untuk membuat keputusan.

"UMCEDEL dah bagi bayangan Umno-BN akan tumbang. Kalau ada kakitangan kerajaan di Putrajaya yang sebelum ini takut undi Husam, ketakutan itu semakin berkurangan.

"Mereka dah berbisik sesama sendiri - nak takut apa, saya undi untuk kerajaan, tapi kerajaan yang baru. Mereka undi menyokong kerajaan baru, jadi apa nak takut?" katanya dengan berseloroh.

Sumber Umno itu turut memuji kenyataan bersama Setiausaha Agong PAS Datuk Mustafa Ali dan Ketua Penerangan PAS Pusat Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man yang memberi jaminan kepada para kakitangan awam yang dianiaya akibat politik kotor dan peras ugut ini akan dibela oleh Pasukan Guaman PAS dan Pakatan Rakyat, terutamanya mereka yang berada di Putrajaya.

"Pengumuman itu sangat ditunggu-tunggu oleh seluruh warga Putrajaya," kata beliau, yang yakin ada YB Putrajaya yang baru selepas 5 Mei ini.

Eggs: To Freeze or Not to Freeze?

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 07:30 AM PDT


We all know about the importance of contraception in preventing unwanted pregnancy -- in 2013 more women are aware of their reproductive options than ever before.

While there have been great strides to make birth control and contraception common knowledge, women's options in terms of fertility are often not widely known. During National Infertility Awareness week, we have the unique opportunity to discuss reproductive aging, a topic that affects all women yet is rarely addressed.
As a woman, you are born with every single egg you will ever have for the rest of your life -- a fact most women should know and many find shocking.

Unlike men, who are constantly able to produce new, viable sperm throughout their life, a woman's eggs begin to age even before birth and continue to do so until their final depletion at menopause.

This may seem like a terrifying concept for most women who plan on having children later, but it doesn't have to be. With egg freezing and the many new related technological advances in the field of reproductive medicine, women are now able to have children later in life. The key is not only knowing your options, but knowing them before it's too late.

Danger Ahead: H7N9 Bird Flu

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 06:43 AM PDT


There has now been 82 confirmed cases of the H7N9 bird flu in China, as officials say most of the contact was from live healthy looking animals. As of yet there is no evidence of human-to-human transmission of the virus. However, some do question if things will ramp up as 17 of the people who died from the virus progressed from onset to death in just 11 days.

The virus attacks the respiratory system.

Keiji Fukuda, assistant director-general for health security of the World Health Organization (WHO) stated in a press conference Wednesday that, "This is an unusually dangerous virus for humans" as is is more easily transmitted than H5N1

The Los Angeles Times reported today, "To date, the mortality rate is 21%, but since many of [sic] patients with confirmed H7N9 virus infection remain critically ill, we suspect that the mortality may increase," they wrote in their study, published online Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine. "Since this H7N9 virus appears to have emerged recently to infect humans, population immunity is expected to be low, and persons of any age may be susceptible to infection."

The report paints a fuller picture of the outbreak, which hascaused Chinese people to become so panicked that one motorist felt the need to flag down police after a bird dropping landed on her car.

Cases of H7N9 infection have been confirmed in six provinces: Shanghai (31 cases), Zhejiang (25), Jiangsu (20), Anhui (three), Henan (two) and Beijing (one). The statistics paint a picture of the typical bird flu victim as an older urban male.

Chinese health officials tested 664 pneumonia patients who were sick enough to be hospitalized between March 25 and April 17. Of these patients, 81, or 12%, tested positive for H7N9 infection. In addition, 5,551 unhospitalized people withflu-like symptoms were tested, and one of them was confirmed to have H7N9.

The 82 confirmed patients ranged in age from 2 to 89 years old, but most were at the higher end of that range and 46% were at least 65. The report said that 73% of patients were men and 84% lived in urban areas."

Deaf But Love Abounds

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 04:52 AM PDT

Being deaf has many challenges. It can be frustrating to feel isolated from the world around you. One man says, "I hate having to rely on others to tell me what's going on, I hate looking like the prize idiot when someone talks to me." But having someone around that can understand what you're going through can make a world of difference. Such is true for a Connecticut boy and his dog.



Last month, an eight-year-old dog called Barney was rescued from an Oxford, CT property along with three other dogs and some farm animals. When he was examined by a vet, it was determined that Barney was deaf. Knowing how difficult it is to place blind and deaf dogs, animal control staff hoped a home could be found for him.

3 Pakatan leaders plot Sulu intrusion!

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 03:30 AM PDT

Three Pakatan Rakyat leaders have been identified as plotters for the Sulu intrusion in Sabah, according to Defense Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Who are they?

Zahid didn't reveal their names but a report will be submitted to the Attorney-General's Chambers for further action.
"What I can say is that two of the opposition leaders involved are from the peninsula and the other, from Sabah," he said at a news conference after his visit to the Royal Malaysian Air Force College in Alor Setar today.

Ahmad Zahid, however, did not reveal the names of the opposition leaders involved.

He said the government wanted to avoid certain parties from claiming it to be a political ploy by BN or political "sandiwara" (drama) by Umno, therefore, all action pertaining to the intrusion incident would be taken after the 13th general election.
I am not going to point fingers at any of them but if investigation leads to their doings, they must face heavy penalty.

They are traitors to the nation and its people for having hands in the intrusion. Whether they are with Pakatan or Barisan Nasional, they dont deserve to be with us!

UMCEDEL: 'Lebih Ramai Setuju Anwar Jadi PM Berbanding Najib'

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 08:27 AM PDT


Kajiselidik Pusat Kajian Demokrasi dan Pilihan Raya Universiti Malaya (Umcedel) menunjukkan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim mendahului Datuk Seri Najib Razak sebagai calon perdana menteri Malaysia yang baru.

Tinjauan pada awal April itu, melibatkan 1,407 responden yang menetap di Semenanjung Malaysia menunjukkan sebanyak 43 peratus responden percaya Anwar layak menjadi perdana menteri manakala 24 peratus lagi berpendapat sebaliknya, dan selebihnya tidak pasti.

Untuk Najib pula, 39 peratus responden berkenaan berpendapat beliau layak menjadi perdana menteri manakala 31 lagi tidak bersetuju. Seramai 30 peratus lagi tidak pasti.

Apa yang menarik, seramai 54 peratus responden Melayu berpendapat Anwar layak menjadi perdana menteri dan hanya 28 peratus yang mahu Najib menjadi perdana menteri.


Di kalangan pengundi kali pertama pula, 48 peratus responden percaya Anwar layak menjadi perdana menteri manaka 25 peratus lagi berpendapat demikian untuk Najib.

Berbanding dengan hasil kajiselidik Umcedel pada bulan Januari, rating Najib merosot empat mata manakala Anwar meningkat satu mata.

Dari segi responden Melayu, Kedudukan Najib merosot 18 mata manakala Kedudukan Anwar pula meningkat sembilan mata.

Najib dan Anwar dilihat bersaing rapat dalam bidang-bidang yang lain.

Najib mempunyai sedikit kelebihan dari segi pemimpin yang rapat dan mesra rakyat, berbanding dengan Anwar.

Lima puluh empat peratus responden percaya Najib lebih "mesra rakyat" berbanding dengan 46 peratus untuk Anwar.

Pengarah Umcedel, Prof Datuk Mohd Redzuan Othman memberitahu satu sidang media hari ini bahawa ini kerana Najib muncul di TV hampir setiap hari, berbanding dengan Anwar yang hanya muncul apabila ada sesuatu yang tidak baik mengenainya.

Najib juga dilihat sedikit lebih mampu dalam pentadbiran berbanding dengan Anwar, manakala Anwar mempunyai kelebihan sedikit dari segi ketelusan dan wawasan untuk memajukan negara.

Bagaimanapun, Anwar mempunyai kelebihan yang jelas dari segi pemimpin yang memiliki ciri-ciri kepimpinan Islam, dengan 43 peratus daripada responden menyatakan beliau memiliki ciri-ciri tersebut, berbanding dengan 37 peratus untuk Najib.

Sementara itu, kajiselidik itu juga mendapati 62 peratus responden berkata mereka tidak dipengaruhi oleh video seks yang didakwa membabitkan seorang pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat yang beredar di Internet.

Tiga puluh sembilan peratus responden berkata mereka yakin video seks itu sebagai "propaganda Umno" untuk membuat serangan peribadi, manakala 39 peratus berkata mereka tidak pasti.

Dua puluh dua peratus responden tidak bersetuju bahawa klip itu "propaganda Umno".

Redzuan berkata, nampaknya kempen memburuk-burukkan Anwar (dalam media arus perdana) tidak benar-benar memberi kesan buruk terhadapnya.

Sementara itu, 63 peratus responden berkata mereka mahu melihat debat antara Najib dan Anwar manakala 19 peratus tidak bersetuju dengan idea tersebut. -mk


Manifesto PR lebih penuhi harapan rakyat - UMCEDEL


Kajian yang dijalankan oleh Pusat Kajian Pilihan Raya dan Demokrasi Universiti Malaysia (UMCEDEL) mendapati, rata-rata pengundi bersetuju bahawa manifesto Pakatan Rakyat lebih memenuhi harapan rakyat berbanding manifesto BN.

Dalam kajian terhadap 1,407 responden pengundi berdaftar yang dibuat pusat kajian itu, 42 peratus dari mereka bersetuju terhadap manifesto Pakatan Rakyat dan hanya 36 peratus bersetuju dengan manifesto BN, manakala 22 peratus memilih tidak pasti.

"Ini dalam keadaan manifesto BN dibentang secara langsung dua jam dalam televisyen, dan media memainkannya hampir setiap hari selepas daripada itu," kata pengarahnya Profesor Datuk Dr Mohammad Redzuan Othman.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media di Universiti Malaya semalam selepas membentangkan hasil kajian bertajuk Pilihan Pengundi Menjelang Hari Mengundi dalam PRU13.

Kajian tersebut dijalankan bermula pada 3 April iaitu hari pembubaran parlimen, sehingga ke hari penamaan calon pada 20 April lalu.

Antara tawaran paling memberi kesan kepada pengundi adalah tawaran penurunan harga minyak yang dijanjikan Pakatan Rakyat jika berjaya menguasai pentadbiran negara.

Tawaran lain yang turut disokong pengundi termasuklah, menghapuskan tol, menurunkan harga kereta, penurunan caj elektrik dan harga air lebih rendah, penghapusan PTPTN, pemberian permit teksi individu serta gaji minima.

Dari segi pecahan kaum, masyarakat Cina adalah paling tinggi bersetuju bahawa manifesto Pakatan Rakyat lebih memenuhi hasrat rakyat dengan 61 peratus, Melayu 37 peratus manakala India 21 peratus.

Bagi BN pula, majoriti yang mengatakan manifesto BN lebih memenuhi hasrat rakyat adalah kaum India dengan 53 peratus, Melayu 38 peratus manakala Cina 25 peratus.

"Kita bertanyakan kepada mereka, dan kebanyakan mereka ini menyatakan memperolehi maklumat manifesto Pakatan Rakyat ini daripada internet dan media alternatif," kata Dr Ridhuan.

If political debate is not our culture, then what is Najib?

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 05:47 AM PDT

By J. D. Lovrenciear

The numerous invitations to the BN leader to debate with the opposition coalition pact leader, Anwar Ibrahim, has been turned down by Najib. It seems that according to BN and its leaders, it is not Malaysian culture to have healthy debates on principles, political philosophies and above all on political and governance matters that are close to the hearts of all Malaysians and especially the voting citizenry.

The entire world promotes and believes in public debates as a way forward to political maturity and social development. It is a civilized approach to understanding viewpoints. It is an accepted standard in winning support for our thoughts and intentions.  Debates are deemed as necessary enlightenment for humanity.

And even here in our schools and universities, we are nurtured, trained and encouraged to participate in debates as a healthy means to enrich our minds and arrive at enlightened pathways on issues and concerns that matter most to society. But when it comes to politics in Malaysia our leaders throw healthy debates down into the sewer.

Well if political debates are not a Malaysian culture, then what is, pray tell the nation Najib! Is producing a profuse series of porn videos our Malaysian culture in the run up to a general election? Or is splashing red paint and burning cars or encroaching and disrupting political ceramahs our way?

Maybe our political culture is running down each other's opponents with all kinds of threats and allegations. Maybe our political culture is one of fist fights, hurling primitive molotov cocktails, and burning effigies as well as doing a butt-dance in front of the homes of globally recognized and respected individuals. So Najib and his team must be right to state that debates are not a Malaysian culture.

How on earth can our leaders proclaim that healthy public debates are not our Malaysian culture and yet claim and preach transformation? How on earth can we even reach the doorways of a developed world standard when our leaders are already downgrading our national image and status quo by telling the world that it is not a Malaysian culture to participate in sound, healthy political debates before the voting public?

For how long more must Malaysians be made to look stupid, immature and incapable in the eyes of the global community of fast-forwarding nations?

Is public and citizens' safety a private responsibility?

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 05:44 AM PDT

By J. D. Lovrenciear

A jog in the park can cause your life. Your driving to work can spell disaster for the entire family. Parking in the basement can rob you of your virginity if not your limbs. Sleeping at home can bring misfortune and financial setbacks. Yes, public safety is a major concern that citizens have been grappling with for far too long. Unfortunate for the voters, your safety has been made out to be your sole and private responsibility.

BN leaders and through their top civil servant as well as media mouth-pieces have often warned citizens that we must exercise greater care and caution when going to the park; when out shopping; when parking in basements of malls; when reaching and leaving our gated-dwellings. Endless warnings and advise each time a heinous crime makes it to the media. Well now with the most unfortunate and totally uncalled for shooting of a senior civil servant on the way to the office, what will our leaders preach? That we must be careful on the way to work too?

Or will they admonish us not to politicize the unsafe conditions under which citizens live? Perhaps they will splash some more statistics and joyfully say, "our crime rate has been drastically reduced". May be they will sweep it all away with that infamous and often quoted statement, "This is an isolated incident". But let us get real. Just as foreing nationals can get bombed away, citizens too have every reason to feel unsafe - at home, at work or in public places. 

Are our homes not barricaded with iron and steel grills, gates and fencing? How many of our homes even feature padlocked grills to the trap door on the ceiling? On top of that we even have to invest in CCTVs and alarm systems of sorts. By comparison, none of our friends in neighboring countries live like this. Why?

No small wonder then why property developers are minting these days with their 'Gated and Guarded' exclusive homes for a 'Peaceful sleep' projects. How many of us have fallen victim to car or motorbike thefts? And that too despite having multiple security features from door to booth to windscreen and glass breakin-security. Even your player has to be bolted with password, mind you. Right?

How many women these days do not dare carry handbags to public places – let alone when going to work? And if they do, how many of them consciously and even subconsciously clutch their bags tight under their armpits? No? Let us not kid, ladies say your piece, please. How many dads and moms will let their daughters go to the park for a run or healthy exercise – even in their own tamans unescorted?

Why do we citizens have to live in so much of fear and be surrounded with so much of risk after over five decades of the world's longest serving political party that forms the government every five years without fail? Or are we not to mix politics, governance and public safety? Some heads of NGOs on the payroll of the government even can advocate that pedestrians must enhance vigilance. How much Sirs?

Leaving our handbags behind; clutching tight our personal belongings under armpits; avoiding the parks; bolting our homes; investing in alarm systems for our vehicles; locking our scooters to drain covers with chains; looking over our backs in public streets – all of these is not enough vigilance? And now in the wake of the brutal shooting of our top civil servant who was been driven to work - and right here in the vicinity of the nation's most secure Putrajaya, we need to ask:

Is public safety solely a private responsibility? Or shall we rephrase it: Should we hold BN responsible for all the crimes and risks that citizens have to shoulder at their own cost, own risk and own initiative and yet not be assured of their personal safety in public places and at home? When citizens cannot feel safe in their own homes, and when our lives are at huge risks in public places, it simply means that there is a degree of negligence and omission on the part of the political party that has been given the mandate to govern all these years.

That is not politicizing crime. It is basic accountability.

Aung San Suu Kyi on Muslims in Burma : via ShingetsuNews Japan

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 04:49 AM PDT

Aung San Suu Kyi on Muslims in Burma : via ShingetsuNews Japan M-Media April 21st, 2013

Although there were criticisms to Aung San Suu Kyi because of her silence on violence against Muslims in Burma, in this video of Shingetsu news agency of Japan, we might find out that what Suu Kyi said is full of tactics and acceptable. But according to some analysts, there is also a worry that all sorts of Buddhists majority had been sealed their sights by military Junta and they might not be able to think well about what Suu Kyi is trying to point out.

Before watching this clip, we have to keep one very important fact in mind, which was said by Suu Kyi at the debate about rule of law organised by the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2012 and what she said is that "Burma law is obsolete".

M-Media presents you of this video via youtube channel of http://www.shingetsunewsagency.com.

" With regard to violence, I object to violence committed by anybody against anybody. It is not matter whether the violence is committed by buddhists or by muslims or by christians. I object to it entirely. I've always been against violence especially in politics. I am sorry that our people are not able to settle their differences across the table like talking to one another rather by resorting to violence. I've said this very clearly that any violation of human rights and any acts of violence are inimical to united and peaceful society, and I stand by that. With regard to whether or not, the rohigyas are citizens of the country that depends very much on whether or not they meet the requirements of citizenship laws as they now exist. There are those who say Burmese citizenship laws which are based on 1982 law are not fair. That is the different question. At present what we have to find out is whether all those who are entitled to citizenship until the present law have been given citizenship. And once they've been given citizenship, they have to be given all the rights of citizens. That has to be established first. And then we must go on to assess this citizenship law to find out whether it is in line with international standards. I think every country is entitled to say that they will work in accordance with existing laws at the same time, every country has a responsibility to consider the possibility that the laws are not in keeping with international standards. And this, the Burmese should have the courage to do, to face the issue of citizenship fairly. With regard to Muslim of Burma, I met some Muslim leaders recently just before I came to Japan. I've been talked about all these communal problems. And it is very sad because none of them every known any other country except this one. I mean that to say except Burma. And they did not feel that they belong to anywhere else and it was sad for them that they were made to feel they did not belong in our country either. And this is a very sad state of affairs. We must learn to accommodate those with different views from ours. But as I said earlier if we want our people to sort out the differences, we must give them security. We must make them feel secure enough to talk to one another. If you don't feel secure enough to go out of your house, if you're afraid that every time you go out of the house, you might be attacked by somebody from a different community, how can you expect them to sit down and sort out the differences which is why I put so much emphasis to rule of law. And this is why people find my attitude to so boring because rule of law is not exciting. But it is very necessary. "

[VIDEO & BERGAMBAR] TG Nik Aziz & Husam Musa Diserbu Selepas Solat Jumaat Di Putrajaya

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 05:34 AM PDT


Sebaik saja selesai solat Jumaat di Masjid Besi, Putrajaya hari ini 26hb April 2013 hampir semua jemaah bila mendapat tahu akan kehadiran Mursyidul Am PAS TGNA dan calon PAS/PR Dato' Hj Husam Musa berada sama dalam masjid berkenaan, terus menyerbu kearah kedua pemimpin ini untuk bersalaman.

Satu suasana yang cukup menyentuh kalbu dan mengharukan sekali.

Sayugia diingat, majoriti jemaah adalah kakaitangan kerajaan yang bertugas di Putrajaya.

Apakah reaksi spontan jujur lagi ikhlas para warga Putrajaya terhadap TGNA dan Husam Musa menandakan tidak mustahil calon PAS/PR Parlimen P100 Putrajaya, Dato' Hj Husam Musa, akan memenangi parlimen ini?

Jawapannya ialah....Ins'y Allah, harapan cukup cerah sekali. -omakkau











Remembering a Great Man

Posted: 26 Apr 2013 01:38 AM PDT

Chinua Achebe's writings had a strong impact on my perspective of life and discrimination. It was back in the 1970's when I first heard about him as I had to study his novel 'Things Fall Apart", the best-selling and most important work of modern African literature, for my English Literature exam for the M.C.E. I still have my copy of that book filled notes scribbled in my tiny handwriting.

According to this site:

Chinua Achebe, born Albert Chinualumogu Achebe, 16 November 1930 – 21 March 2013) was a Nigerian novelist, poet, professor, and critic. He was best known for his first novel and magnum opus, Things Fall Apart (1958), which is the most widely read book in modern African literature.



Raised by his parents in the Igbo town of Ogidi in southeastern Nigeria, Achebe excelled at school and won a scholarship for undergraduate studies. He became fascinated with world religions and traditional African cultures, and began writing stories as a university student. After graduation, he worked for the Nigerian Broadcasting Service (NBS) and soon moved to the metropolis of Lagos. He gained worldwide attention for Things Fall Apart in the late 1950s; his later novels include No Longer at Ease (1960), Arrow of God (1964), A Man of the People (1966), and Anthills of the Savannah (1987). Achebe wrote his novels in English and defended the use of English, a "language of colonisers", in African literature. In 1975, his lecture An Image of Africa: Racism in Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" featured a famous criticism of Joseph Conrad as "a bloody racist"; it was later published amid some controversy. CLICK HERE for more.

Here's a BBC report about his death:


Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe, who has died aged 82, was revered throughout the world for his depiction of life in Africa.

He wrote about the effects of colonialism and its aftermath, as well as political corruption and attempts to introduce democratic reforms.

Born in 1930, he has often been referred to as the founding father of African literature in English.

Chinua Achebe said that any good story or any good novel should have a message and a purpose.

His first novel - the groundbreaking Things Fall Apart, published in 1958 - dealt with the clash between Western and traditional African values - and how traditional norms and values had been undermined.

Translated into more than 50 languages, its focus was on the traditions of Igbo society in south-eastern Nigeria, where he grew up.

"The white man is very clever. He came quietly and peaceably with his religion. We were amused at his foolishness and allowed him to stay. Now he has won our brothers, and our clan can no longer act like one. He has put a knife on the things that held us together and we have fallen apart," one of the characters said.

He wrote his novels in English and defended the use of English, a "language of colonisers", in African literature.

After he won the Man Booker International Prize for his work in 2007, he told the BBC that African literature was important for the wider literary world, and for African states themselves.

    Lim Guan Eng - My Facultymate At Monash University, Australia

    Posted: 26 Apr 2013 01:01 AM PDT

    Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang, was in Sibu speaking at a ceramah with a turnout of more than ten thousand.  He is simply a crowd-puller!

    When I was in Year 3 at Faculty of Economics & Politics,  Monash University,  doing my Bachelor of Economics majoring in accounting, Lim Guan Eng was there in Year 1 undertaking the same course.  That was way back in 1980.

    Soft-spoken and shy-looking, Lim Guan Eng then was commonly known to the Malaysian students as Lim kit Siang's son.

    I used to see Lim Guan Eng in Student Music Room on Level 1 of Student Union Building during lunch break enjoying some fine music.

    In 1980, Lim Kit Siang was in Monash University giving a high-powered public forum on Malaysian politics at Rotunda Hall.  The hall that evening was packed with a crowd of more than 500.  I noticed Lim Guan Eng sitting at the front row giving his father some moral support.

    Translated by Aung Tin

    http://www.nytimes.com By AUNG ZAW

    Anti-Muslim violence is no accident but the product of an effort led by army hard-liners to thwart both reforms and Myanmar's opening to the outside world.

    VICIOUS sectarian and ethnic violence has set back the fragile political reforms introduced in Myanmar last year. As tensions flare in the majority-Buddhist country that I and other exiles still call Burma, many fear that the deadly anti-Muslim riots are no accident but the product of an effort led by army hard-liners to thwart both the reforms and Myanmar's opening to the world.

    When I returned to my homeland last year — for the first time in 24 years — I witnessed a rising wave of extreme nationalism and anti-Muslim hate speech. I heard senior army officers and government ministers express unfounded fears that Muslims would force their religion on Buddhists and try to "steal" Buddhist women. These hatemongers said that Saudi Arabia was secretly financing Muslim businesses and mosques, and that the Rohingyas, a Muslim minority in the west, were being joined en masse by illegal migrants from Bangladesh.

    "If we don't deter them, the western gate will break," one senior minister told me, referring to Arakan State, which borders Bangladesh and is home to most Rohingyas. In his view, human rights did not apply to Muslims.

    These attitudes have spread deep within the populace. Last year, clashes between Buddhists and Muslims in western Myanmar killed at least 180 people and displaced more than 120,000, mostly Rohingyas. Last month, violence spread to central Myanmar, killing dozens and leaving more than 13,000 homeless.

    Although many culprits have been suggested, I have no doubt that national officials bear some responsibility, and that the violence suggests a power struggle within the elite. Infighting between hard-line and moderate forces in the government, which took power two summers ago under the moderate general Thein Sein, is no secret. His cabinet, Parliament and the army remain dominated by holdovers from the regime of the former dictator Gen. Than Shwe. Many are resisting President Thein Sein's reforms.

    The generals who ruled the country for five decades control much of the nation's wealth, and some are close to Chinese interests that stand to be eclipsed if Myanmar deepens economic ties to the West. The anti-Muslim violence is a useful distraction from Burmese grievances against China, whose heavy-handed economic activities have bred resentments across much of Southeast Asia.

    Opposition leaders note that the violence began, suspiciously, just months after the party of the opposition leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, won a landslide victory in by-elections in April 2012. Muslims were targeted with "brutal efficiency," according to Vijay Nambiar, then the United Nations secretary general's special adviser on Myanmar. Tomás Ojea Quintana, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, said he'd received reports of "state involvement," with the authorities "standing by while atrocities have been committed before their very eyes, including by well-organized ultranationalist Buddhist mobs." The government has denied the allegations, but it defies belief the security forces and riot police, who ruthlessly suppressed protests in 1988 and 2007, have suddenly lost their nerve.

    Last month, President Thein Sein warned "political opportunists and religious extremists" that hateful actions would "not be tolerated." So far, however, his government has largely failed to hunt down the perpetrators. Perhaps, observers say, some perpetrators are too big to catch.

    Others blame extremist monks; one of their most charismatic leaders, U Wirathu, has been called "the Burmese Bin Laden" because of his video sermons urging attacks on Muslims and boycotts of their businesses. His hateful incitement goes unchecked, and photographs on social media sites have even shown him receiving alms from hard-liners.

    The sowers of hate have rich soil in which to work, but it wasn't always so.

    Muslims began arriving in Burma as traders and mercenaries in the 13th century and lived alongside Buddhists in relative peace for centuries. In the 19th century, under the reformist King Mindon, mosques were built and thousands of Muslims served in Burmese infantry and artillery divisions. Mindon even helped build a hostel in Mecca for Burmese Muslims making the pilgrimage, or hajj.

    The seeds of sectarian conflict date from British rule, which started in southern Burma. Indian immigrants flocked there after the first Anglo-Burmese War, from 1824 to 1826. Later, after two more wars that made Burma a province of colonial India, riots erupted, targeted at Indian Muslims who had come to dominate low-skill jobs and money-lending. In some of the worst clashes, in 1938, hundreds of Muslims and Buddhists were killed, and mosques were destroyed.

    Nevertheless, Muslims achieved prominence as student activists, politicians, army officers, civil servants, scholars and teachers. U Razak, a Muslim cabinet minister, was assassinated alongside the independence leader Aung San — Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi's father — in 1947. But the situation for Muslims worsened after the military seized power in 1962.

    The regime sought to impose ethnic purity by marginalizing minorities (ethnic Burmans make up only two-thirds of the population) and non-Buddhists. Eventually, even traditional Buddhists were marginalized, as dictators employed a grotesque parody of their religion to manipulate the masses. The leaders portrayed themselves as devout, but showed no compassion in brutally repressing minorities and dissidents.

    Today's Buddhist extremists are the legacy of this policy. They are everywhere: on the streets and in Parliament, wearing military fatigues, business suits and monks' robes. Some monasteries have become breeding grounds for extreme nationalism. Many senior monks are corrupt, including those in the state-sponsored Buddhist council, the Sangha.

    President Thein Sein and Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi, former rivals, share some responsibility for the violence and have a legal and moral duty to act. Freed after more than a decade under house arrest, Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi, now a member of Parliament, has called for the rule of law, but this is not enough. To be as respected as Mohandas K. Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, she must explicitly condemn the bloodshed against Rohingyas, Kachin and other minorities and criticize the police and security forces for their negligence and complacency. Newspapers, newly freed from censorship, must cease their jingoistic sloganeering and assume the responsibilities that come with liberty.

    Machete-wielding monks and militants, implicitly granted a license to kill, have been a blot on our nation and the government's recent commitment to change. If President Thein Sein does not move quickly to stop the bloodshed, a historic opportunity for peace — and acceptance for Myanmar in the community of nations — will be lost.

    BN Cukup Terdesak, Peralat Murid Sekolah Berkempen, SPR Berdiam Diri!

    Posted: 26 Apr 2013 01:22 AM PDT


    Memperalat murid sekolah sebagai budak suruhan bagi kempen Barisan Nasional (BN) adalah pelanggaran etika pilihan raya, kata Pengerusi Biro Pendidikan KEADILAN, Abbas Awang.

    Beliau mengulas gambar di laman sosial yang memaparkan murid Sekolah Kebangsaan Long Jeeh Baram, Sarawak mengibarkan bendera BN ketika mahu menyambut dan memberi sokongan kepada calon BN Baram yang juga bekas Timbalan Ketua Menteri Sarawak, Tan Sri Alfred Jabu.

    "Ini jelas melanggar undang-undang demi kepentingan politik BN. Parti itu seolah-olah makin terdesak sehingga sanggup menggunakan murid untuk kempen politik.

    "Perkara ini tidak sepatutnya berlaku, mereka masih kecil. Jangan heret kanak-kanak dalam kancah politik," katanya ketika dihubungi.

    Tegas beliau, Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) tidak boleh mengambil mudah perkara tersebut dan perlu segera menyiasat kerana ia bertentangan etika kempen pilihan raya.

    "SPR sepatutnya ambil tindakan segera untuk mengelakkan pemimpin BN menggunakan murid bagi kempen mereka. Penglibatan guru yang merupakan kakitangan awam dalam kes sebegini merupakan salah guna kuasa.

    "Saya hairan mengapa Pengarah Pelajaran Negeri atau Daerah sanggup dipergunakan pemimpin BN, dan kemudian memperalat murid sekolah untuk kempen mereka," ujarnya.

    Dalam pada itu, beliau memberitahu modus operandi sama turut digunakan pemimpin BN di Kuala Lipis, Pahang apabila guru diarah mendengar 'taklimat' tohmahan ke atas pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat.

    "Semalam, semua guru dikumpul supaya mendengar taklimat memfitnah pemimpin Pakatan di Pejabat Pelajaran Daerah Kuala Lipis. "Antara yang saya dapat maklumat, kononnya kawan Anwar (Ibrahim), Sidek Baba turut diundang memberikan 'taklimat' kepada guru," kata Abbas.

    So-called Buddhist monks and Rakhine civilians protest shelter built for displaced Rohingya who they label as illegal inhabitants…interesting just when ~670 6,000,000 Myanmar Kyat/house homes just built for Sittwe Rakhine IDP's versus 10,000′s of Rohingya still living in straw huts and tents with dirty pond for water sources and after Bangladesh born Rakhine ethnic given confiscated Rohingya land, new built homes and legal status oin Northern Rakhine Maungdaw Township.
