Malaysia is Islam says PAS vs India is our Hindu rashtra says Radical Hindutva

The noted Malayalam writer Kamala Surayya (earlier Das) converted to Islam but allegedly rued her decision before her death. “I fell in love with a Muslim after my husband’s death. He was kind and generous in the beginning. But I now feel one shouldn’t change one’s religion. It is not worth it.”In any case, as long as telepathy doesn’t become widespread, people can convert, re-convert, re-re-convert —or even not convert — without any of the self-styled guardians of faiths reallyknowing. Which leaves me with two questions: did those Agra guys get their BPL cards? And, is there any faith I can embrace that can get me an Xbox One and a bottle of Jameson whiskey upon conversion?

Rabble-rouser PAS of the heartland recently wanted a threat conveyed to the UMNO leadership.things could go wrong.” What he means is obvious: he too would make noise, create nuisance and if possible force another inane Parliamentary debate on some divisive nonsense.PKR said PAS leaders should stop questioning the faith of Muslims who question the Islamic party’s move to implement hudud law, as there is nothing in the syariah that prevents this.“It is … unacceptable for certain Pas leaders to continuously question the faith of Muslims whenever they raise questions or doubts on (a) PAS faction’s attempt to implement hudud.There is nothing in the syariah that prohibits Muslims from debating hudud,” said PKR central committee member Latheefa Koya in a statement today.She said many ordinary Muslims in Malaysia felt compelled to say that they will not object to hudud but this is a fallacy.“There is some confusion that as Muslims cannot ‘reject’ the hudud, therefore we cannot question PAS’ version of hudud. This is a fallacy. PAS’ version of hudud is not a sacred cow,” she said.
“The BJP has always been opposed to forcible conversion. The so-called secular parties must support the bill against forced conversion if they are sincere in their clamour against it,” he said.Replying to questions on whether BJP was willing to talk to minorities on the conversion issue, Shah said, “First let there be a consensus among political parties, and the question of talking to minorities can be taken up.”Shah dismissed the criticism of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi that BJP was trying to divide the country on communal lines. “This is a criticism raised only by Rahul Gandhi and some Congress leaders as well as some sections of the media. There is no truth in those allegations.”

'Darah Melayu mengalir dalam tubuh saya'


Edmund Burke mengatakan,” The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
Ahli Parlimen PR berpendapat, pengemis yang dimaksudkan Dr Mahathir adalah parti Melayu Umno, dan bukannya komuniti Melayu di negara ini seperti didakwa beliau"Umno sebenarnya yang jadi pengemis terdesak, bukan orang Melayu," kata Pembantu Setiausaha Publisiti DAP Kebangsaan Zairil Khir Johari (gambar) dalam kenyataannya hari ini "Saya amat sedih dengan hakikat seorang pemimpin terhormat seperti Dr Mahathir mampu merendahkan diri sehingga menggambarkan senario yang bukan sahaja mustahil tetapi juga tidak lebih daripada satu muslihat tipu daya," kata ahli Parlimen Bukit Bendera itu lagi.

Dr Mahathir semalam dilaporkan berkata, komuniti Melayu yang membentuk sejumlah 60% daripada keseluruhan populasi di negara ini seharusnya mempunyai kuasa politik untuk memerintah, namun kuasa itu katanya kini semakin lemah."Sekarang Umno, PKR, dan PAS terpaksa merayu kepada DAP untuk menang pilihan raya. Apabila kita menjadi pengemis, kita tidak lagi ada kuasa," katanya ketika berucap di Program Kepimpinan Belia di Kuala Lumpur.

Beliau turut memberi amaran, walaupun Malaysia mencapai status negara maju, Melayu akan terus ketinggalan dan itulah nasib bangsa tersebut hari ini.Zairil berkata, dominasi Melayu dalam setiap aspek masyarakat Malaysia sebenarnya berada di kemuncak terutamanya dari aspek politik apabila setiap jawatan penting kerajaan, daripada perdana menteri kerajaan Persekutuan dan 12 daripada 13 menteri besar negeri dipegang oleh orang Melayu.

"Dominasi Melayu juga sangat jelas dalam institusi-institusi negara seperti badan kehakiman, pasukan polis, perkhidmatan awam dan tentera. Jika itu tidak mencukupi, Melayu juga membentuk majoriti penduduk Malaysia, selain mencatatkan kadar kesuburan yang satu setengah kali lebih daripada orang Cina. Ini bermakna orang Cina dan kaum-kaum lain semakin mengecil dari segi populasi penduduk," katanya.

Tambahnya lagi, meskipun pemilikan ekuiti Melayu pada tahun-tahun awal Dasar Ekonomi Baru mungkin dalam digit tunggal, pemilikan ini berkembang dengan pesat sejak beberapa dekad lalu.

Menurut Bank Pembangunan Asia, ekuiti yang dimiliki syarikat berkaitan kerajaan (GLC) daripada permodalan pasaran Bursa Malaysia dan penanda aras pasaran Indeks Komposit Kuala Lumpur (KLCI) masing-masing berada pada kadar 36 % dan 54 %.

"Ini bermakna sebahagian besar ekonomi negara kita dikuasai oleh GLC yang secara umumnya dikuasai oleh orang Melayu."

"Dan jika semua di atas tidak mencukupi, kedudukan istimewa Melayu juga termaktub dalam Perlembagaan. Selain itu, bukan sahaja sebarang pindaan Perlembagaan yang melibatkan kedudukan Melayu memerlukan majoriti dua pertiga di Parlimen (yang dalam erti kata lain memerlukan sokongan penuh Melayu), ia juga memerlukan kelulusan Raja-raja Melayu. Jaminan ini bermakna tidak akan ada sebarang ancaman terhadap orang Melayu di negara ini," tambahnya.Beliau berkata, dengan prestasi Umno yang semakin terdesak, tidak menghairankan Umno dan Dr Mahathir terpaksa menjaja ketakutan serta memilih cara terdesak untuk memulihkan sokongan sokongan yang merosot.
Naib Presiden PKR Chua Tian Chang (gambar) berkata, daripada mengungkit isu perkauman, rakyat Malaysia seharusnya menumpukan kepada perjuangan mereka untuk menghadapi ekonomi global yang tidak menentu.

"Sebenarnya saya tidak minat bagi komen tentang Dr Mahathir. Bagi saya, beliau kini nampaknya agak terdesak sebab mungkin suaranya tidak lagi diendahkan orang Umno. Justeru, beliau ingin memberi amaran kepada orang Umno supaya pertahankan legasi beliau," katanya yang juga ahli Parlimen Batu kepada The Malaysian Insider.
"Bagi saya itu tujuannya. Saya tidak ambil berat sangat tentang apa yang disebut kerana Dr Mahathir selalunya memanipulasikan fakta, baik sejarah atau realiti masyarakat untuk matlamat politiknya," katanya dan menambah,"Isu perkauman tidak lagi relevan sekarang ini."Ahli Parlimen Seputeh daripada DAP, Teressa Kok berkata beliau yakin Dr Mahathir tidak akan menjadi pengemis di tanah air ini dan terus mendominasi politik."Ini hanyalah untuk mengembalikan sokongan kepada Umno, dan ia tidak akan berjaya," kata Kok Tambahnya, orang Melayu sudah mula berubah, namun Dr Mahathir masih lagi berada di takuk lama tanpa sebarang perubahan.

Ahli Parlimen Pokok Sena daripada PAS, Datuk Mahfuz Omar berkata kenyataan Dr Mahathir itu tidak lebih daripada sekadar menunjukkan kegagalan Umno menjaga kepentingan orang Melayu, sedangkan parti itu kononnya menjadi pejuang bangsa Melayu."Kenyataan Dr Mahathir satu perkara memalukan kepimpinan politik Meayu yang berkuasa. Kenyataan itu menunjukkan Umno gagal dalam menjaga kepentingan orang Melayu."Ini menunjukkan selama ini kepimpinan Melayu yang berkuasa ini mengkhianati orang Melayu. Apa yang dibangkitkan beliau itu mengemis kuasa, ia ada kaitan membina masyarakat Melayu," kata ketua penerangan PAS itu.Mahfuz berkata, segala urusan dan kepimpinan utama negara termasuk jumlah penjawat awam kesemuanya didominsi orang Melayu dan sudah semestinya orang Melayu mencapai pencapaian yang besar dari aspek kedudukan Melayu."Tetapi kita masih lagi mengemis, menjerit-jerit meminta tempat dan kedudukan untuk orang Melayu dari segi ekonomi, pendidikan."Ini pengkhianatan pimpinan politik Melayu  Umno yang berkuasa selama ini," tambahnya. –

Walau ditinjau dari segi apa sekalipun,’saham’ UMNO dalam  menggagalkan  pencapaian orang Melayu adalah amat besar disebabkan UMNO (BN) lah yang telah memerintah Negara ini lebih dari separuh abad. Tidak dinafikan orang Melayu telah maju berbanding dengan orang Melayu pada zaman penjajahan tetapi jika dibandingkan dengan bangsa lain (yang dahulunya juga di bawah sistem penjajahan) jelas menunjukkan yang orang Melayu di Malaysia memang agak terkebelakang. Tidak usahlah dibandingkan dengan Singapura, dengan Indoensia, Filipina pun aku anggap kita (orang Melayu) agak ketinggalan (walaupun aku tidak ada statistik yang jelas menyokong pandangan demikian). Malah apabila melihat pencapaian Vietnam  pun aku merasakan kita agak ketinggalan. Ini merupakan persepsi dan terbuka untuk diperbahaskan.

Mungkin tidak keterlaluan sekiranya aku katakan bahawa sebahagian besar ahli UMNO kini terutama pemimpin peringkat atasannya seolah-olah mengkhianati perjuangan orang Melayu berbanding dengan apa yang telah dilakukan oleh pejuang-pejuang UMNO lama yang benar-benar berjuang untuk memajukan bangsanya. Walaupun ini merupakan pandangan ‘ kedai kopi kampung’ namun perlu juga dinilai tentang kebenarannya.

Tidak pula aku menafikan seratus peratus bahawa pemimpin UMNO tidak memperjuangkan orang Melayu. Memang ada. Namun aku boleh ibaratkan sikap mereka adalah seperti lembu yang meragut rumput. Aku masih ingat ketika aku masih bersekolah rendah pernah juga menaiki kereta lembu (kepunyaan orang sikh untuk mengangkut barangannya) ketika pulang dari sekolah. Masih aku terbayang di mata bagaimana lembunya meragut rumput di tepi jalan sambil membawa kereta. Maknanya lembunya menjalankan dua ‘tugas’. Membawa kereta disamping meragut rumput ditepi jalan. Bagitulah analogi yang boleh aku gambarkan mengenai sikap setengah pemimpin UMNO kini.

Syed Rosli Jamalullail :When Khairy Jamaluddin wing it, the sky's no limit

Syed Rosli Jamalullail, the information chief for the Pusat Bandar Taman Chempaka Umno branch, believes party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak should step down. – The Malaysian Insider pic, December 19, 2014.

 At a time when UNMO and -Perkasa are engaged in a high-pitched battle for political space Syed Rosli Jamalullail minced no words to mount a full blast attack on Khairy he said  Khairy was arrogant and belittled the party's grassroots by not allowing them to speak their minds. is being used for political vendetta. "It is unfair that Umno members are not allowed to speak up. What is the point of being a member if one is not allowed to talk and our voice is being belittled?" he said, in response to the Umno youth chief's reprimand yesterday UMNO'S less corrupt than Perkasa  is comparing apples and oranges  is worse than comparing apples and oranges. At least apples and oranges are both fruit. The nature of ‘corruption’ in umno and -Perkasa is completely different.The way politics operates is consequently different. UMNO does not really have ‘rule of law’. Instead, bureaucrats run things behind the scenes and the law is more a tool to get things done than an authority to be followed. Decision making is not transparent, happening in backroom negotiations and via subtle political signalling — leaving a lot of room for graft. Political factions conspire with each other; people compete for influence behind the scenes. This rarely comes into the open. Losers are quietly sidelined, or if they’re particularly problematic they’re violently expelled 
Oddly enough, Perkasa's incessant demands were met by Umno last month at the party's general assembly. This was where many Umno leaders showcased their ultra-Malay image, and where party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak decided to keep and strengthen the Sedition Act 1948, just as Perkasa had demanded.


But it appears that all this is still not enough for Perkasa which has now trained its guns on Najib's leadership, with its vice-president, the former Election Commission (EC) chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman, bluntly telling the prime minister to "stop lying" about the state of the country.
So confident is Perkasa that Rashid even suggested that the non-governmental organisation should change its role from being a pressure group to a full-fledged political party, saying that this was the only way to ensure the country would be "run by the right people".
Rashid and Perkasa's strident attacks of Najib are not happening in a vacuum. They follow a build-up of criticism by the retired but still influential former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is Perkasa's patron.
At the same time, Najib has been on the receiving end of more scorn, by pro-Umno bloggers, no less, to the point that the prime minister felt compelled to complain about them at the Umno assembly, using the word "bangang" (idiotic).
Najib's defender, Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, had suggested that Rashid was probably an unhappy civil servant who did not get "certain things" while working in the government administration. Rashid had complained about corruption in Umno while stressing that he himself had never benefited from graft.
-Another Umno minister, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz, also took Perkasa to task for criticising the prime minister's hectic travel schedule, telling the group to look at themselves in the mirror before advising Najib.
Trying to make sense of the unfolding drama, political analyst Associate Professor Dr Mohd Azizuddin Mohd Sani said Perkasa could be feeling threatened at being sidelined by Umno, as the party had been taking a more conservative stance in championing Malay interests.
"Perkasa says that it is supporting the government, but it also whacked Umno. Perhaps the group is worried that Umno is actually being proactive in helping the Malays, and it (Perkasa) will be sidelined.
"Umno is already seen as championing the Malays, compared to previously when the prime minster was seen as trying to maintain his moderate image," Azizuddin said, referring to Najib's promotion of moderate Malaysia abroad and earlier promised reforms.
The Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer added that Perkasa also appeared to be trying to ensure that Umno did not lose sight of its Malay cause, and was doing so by attacking party leaders who had been openly critical of the Malay rights group.
Among the Umno leaders who have came into Perkasa's line of fire include Public Accounts Committee chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed, Global Movement of Moderates chief executive Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin, his deputy Khairul Azwan Harun and Sabah speaker Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.
Azizuddin said Perkasa's attacks on Umno's leadership was unnecessary and could work against the political party, which it supports, by making it look weak.
"There is no need to use such tones and language as they are insulting.
"Perkasa says it supports Barisan Nasional and Umno but openly criticises them. This should not happen as it will only give the impression that all is not well.
"They (Perkasa) may think that their intentions are good, to be a pressure group so that Umno does not deviate from its original Malay struggle, but not like this," he said.
Perkasa secretary-general Syed Hasan Syed Ali, however, believes the group is justified in its criticism, saying that it was only aimed at certain Umno leaders whom Perkasa felt were not in line with the Malay struggle.
"The ones we called 'bangsat' are those in Umno who criticised Perkasa as being extreme, as though they did not understand Umno's own struggle.
"We were targeting them, not all the leaders in Umno," Syed Hasan said, adding that the Umno leaders they took issue with sounded more like the opposition.
"We are not attacking all of Umno, only those who sounded like the opposition.
"We want Umno to be strong, we want to cure those who are weak. So, we can't be praising them," he said.
"Perkasa is just a small organisation, can't we at least criticise them if something is not right?" Syed Hassan said, and used the Malay idiom "Siapa makan cili, dia rasa pedas", to stress that only the Umno leaders who were "guilty" would be offended by Perkasa's criticisms.
During Perkasa's 5th annual conference in Kuala Lumpur last Sunday, its head Datuk Ibrahim Ali had declared himself a hero of the Malay community and slammed his critics in Umno, calling them "bangsat" (despicable) for their failure to understand the group's agenda in defending Malay rights and Islam.
He directed the remark at Umno leaders who were known for being critical of both Perkasa and another Malay rights group, Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma).
He claimed that Perkasa currently has about 700,000 members and described the movement as "a beehive that produces quality honey which can be extracted to cure many ‘ailments’".
Following this spate of unprecedented attacks against Umno, it will be interesting to see where this curious relationship is headed. Will Umno succumb to Perkasa's pressures and grow even more conservative or will Perkasa succeed in replacing the former?

Syed Rosli mahu Muhyiddin ganti Najib, anggap Khairy angkuh

Syed Rosli Jamalullail, the information chief for the Pusat Bandar Taman Chempaka Umno branch, believes party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak should step down. – The Malaysian Insider pic, December 19, 2014.

t might be a little, but not too late, to finally see some prominent Malays speak up against the national discourse on race and religion that has been going pear-shaped recently.
Twenty-five of them, retired top civil servants and personalities that helped take Malaysia to punch above its weight-class in the 1990s and early 2000s, sent an open letter last night to ask moderate Malaysians to stand up and be counted.
"Given the impact of such vitriolic rhetoric on race relations and political stability of this country, we feel it is incumbent on us to take a public position," Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin, former Malaysian ambassador to the Netherlands, said in a statement issued on behalf of the 25 signatories last night.In their 19-paragraph statement, they succinctly described the need for a rational dialogue, spoke out against minister Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom's comments on a recent transgender case, and importantly, told Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to provide leadership.
Malaysians have to laud them for their stand, for their candour, and their courage to speak their mind. But it will take more than 25 Malaysians who have seen the world in their time to ensure shrill voices do not dominate the national discourse.
"It is high time moderate Malays and Muslims speak out. Extremist, immoderate and intolerant voices as represented by Perkasa and Isma do not speak in our name," said the 25 in an open letter sent to all Malaysian media.
"Given the impact of such vitriolic rhetoric on race relations and political stability of this country, we feel it is incumbent on us to take a public position and urge for an informed and rational dialogue on the ways Islam is used as a source of public law and policy in Malaysia.
"More importantly, we call on the prime minister to exercise his leadership and political will to establish an inclusive consultative committee to find solutions to these intractable problems that have been allowed to fester for too long.
"We also urge more moderate Malaysians to speak up and contribute to a better informed and rational public discussion on the place of Islamic laws within a constitutional democracy and the urgency to address the breakdown of federal-state division of powers and finding solutions to the heart-wrenching stories of lives and relationships damaged and put in limbo because of battles over turf and identity," they added.
This battle over turf and identity has raged since Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) began losing power after the 2008 general elections. The loss of political power has led some parties to court and allow the far-right fringe to dominate the national discourse for the sake of keeping power.
The greater irony is that Malaysia is the country that has been promoting the idea of moderation at the international stage but yet, in our home, we let a few people to hijack policies and sideline the rational voices.
The reality is that this creeping narrow and parochial view of the world has turned into a march under the watch of a government distracted about keeping power. And it will take more than one open letter to change anything.
"These issues of concern we raise are, of course, difficult matters to address given the extreme politicisation of race and religion in this country.
"But we believe there is a real need for a consultative process that will bring together experts in various fields, including Islamic and constitutional laws, and those affected by the application of Islamic laws in adverse ways," said the 25.
They are right. And the reality is this consultative process needs more from the Malay Muslims as they form the majority in the country.
If they stay silent, the vociferous few will dominate and take the country further to the right.
So right now, more Malaysians need to step up and speak up against the few who want a Malaysia far removed from the dreams of its founding fathers.
Right now, more people must support the 25 who include among them Tan Sri Datuk Abdul Rahim Haji Din, former secretary-general of the home affairs ministry; Tan Sri Ahmad Kamil Jaafar, former secretary-general, foreign ministry; Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman, former secretary-general, finance ministry; Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican; former director-general, health ministry; Tan Sri Mohd Sheriff Mohd Kassim, former secretary-general, finance ministry; Tan Sri Dr Mustaffa Babjee, former director-general, Veterinary Services Department; and Hendon Mohamad, former president of the Malaysian Bar.
Right now, we need a government that will stand up for Malaysians, and if not, they should step aside for those who will. –

Menteri Belia dan Sukan Khairy Jamaluddin dianggap angkuh kerana mengatakan suara akar umbi tidak relevan apabila berkata kepada sidang media ia merupakan hierarki terendah dalam parti. – Gambar fail The Malaysian Insider, 19 Disember, 2014.

We cannot control the evil tongues of others; but a good life enables us to disregard them.
An Umno leader who was labelled as the “lowest of the low” by Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar said that the statement shows that the latter was “belittling” the party’s grassroots.


Syed Rosli charges KJ with belittling Umno grassroots


Pemimpin Umno cawangan Syed Rosli Syed Harman Jamalullail berkata, Datuk Seri Najib Razak perlu berundur dari kedudukannya dalam parti serta sebagai perdana menteri agar ruang itu dapat diberikan kepada timbalannya, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

"Saya cadang timbalan perdana menteri ambil alih kedudukan Najib. Beliau lebih layak dan ini supaya dapat memberi nafas baru kepada parti," kata beliau kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Cadangan ini dibuat sebagai tambahan kepada surat terbuka Ketua Penerangan Umno cawangan Taman Chempaka, Pandan, sebelum ini yang menuntut supaya Najib berundur.
Dalam pada itu, Syed Rosli mengingatkan Ketua Pemuda Umno Khairy Jamaluddin beliau tidak mungkin berada di tahapnya seperti sekarang tanpa sokongan akar umbi.
Malah beliau juga turut mengingatkan menteri belia dan sukan itu suara akar umbi itulah yang menyaksikan bagaimana bekas perdana menteri Tun Abdullah Badawi terpaksa berundur daripada jawatannya.

"Khairy Jamaluddin kena ingat undian daripada akar umbilah yang menyebabkan beliau menang dan daripada suara akar umbilah membawa kejayaan desakan Tun Abdullah Badawi meletakkan jawatan," katanya kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Menjawab reaksi Khairy dalam surat terbukanya kepada perdana menteri pada Rabu lalu, ketua penerangan Umno cawangan itu berkata, kenyataan Khairy selain bersifat angkuh dan sombong, juga akan memberikan persepsi negatif kepada ahli Umno yang sememangnya menjadi suara akar umbi parti itu.

"Beliau tidak boleh kata suara akar umbi ini tidak relevan. Tidak adil kalau ahli Umno ini tidak dapat bersuara, jadi apa tujuan menjadi ahli kalau tidak dapat bersuara atau suara kami dipandang hina.

"Umno sendiri cuba permudahkan cara bagi rakyat menjadi ahli, jadi dengan kenyataan Khairy bukan sahaja menyebabkan ahli berasa kecewa tetapi menyebabkan timbulnya tanggapan negatif rakyat apabila suara akar umbi ini dianggap paling rendah.

"Sebagai pemimpin Umno, Khairy sepatutnya lebih menghormati suara akar umbi," katanya.

Khairy dalam reaksinya kepada surat terbuka itu menghina Syed Rosli dengan berkata ia adalah suara yang paling rendah dalam hierarki Umno.

Bercakap di sidang media semalam, Khairy berkata beliau hairan mengapa media memilih untuk menyiarkan surat Syed Rosli kerana beliau tidak mempunyai jawatan tinggi dalam Umno.

Apatah lagi kata Khairy, Syed Rosli pernah mencabarnya untuk jawatan ketua pemuda, namun tidak mendapat sebarang undi.

Mengulas mengenai surat terbukannya yang mendesak Najib untuk berundur agar Umno dapat dikukuhkan semula, Syed Rosli berkata pandangannya itu dibuat secara ikhlas tanpa ada agenda tertentu.

There are no thoughts there even now. If you want to find out whether there is any such thing as thought, the very question that we are posing to ourselves, namely, “Is there a thought?” is borne out of the assumption that there is a thought there.

Son in Law the Beast and the Father in Law Beauty and the lowest form of creature' in Umno


 You know it is silly season when experienced observers agonise over a change considerable time’   beginning the policy ’and try to read between the lines, conveniently forgetting the fact that nothing is cast in stoneWhat he said in an interview with The Malaysian Insider on returning jihadists targeting liberals and "evangelical Jesuits" (a new phrase because anyone with cursory knowledge of religion will know that Jesuits are a Catholic order and Catholics are not known as evangelicals) came across as a caution to these two groups, instead of a warning about the spread of extremist behaviour among Muslim fringe groups.
It was like the Umno idea of highlighting the May 13 riots and the beheading by Isis fighters  at the recent assembly – a not-so-subtle reminder to those who opposed the government of what could happen somewhere in the not-too-distant future if they did not toe the line.
Or rather, how things will be handled in the future if Umno is out of power. And how some politicians will handle issues to keep national peace and order, or rather, power.
Umno appears to be legitimising the use of force and it is interesting that Hanif Omar instead of talking about the trend of young Malaysians going abroad and fighting and urging the government to tackle the root cause of this phenomenon seemed keen to talk about two non-existent threats to national security in Malaysia: the LGBT community and Christians.
It is interesting that it is these two groups on which Umno seems to be fixated. A party that claims to represent the majority is not as interested in furthering the community as it is in wanting to put down some minorities.
And if these minorities do not bow down and stay at the sidelines, would it not be hard to imagine that a few jihadists might find it their business to "take care" of them in the interests of religion, peace and order?
What is interesting is that these jihadists, Malaysians or otherwise, are now in a theatre of conflict against other Muslims whom they think are less Muslim than themselves.

Najib How on earth the Illiteracy minister Ahmad Maslan is in the Finance Ministry

It is not rocket science to understand that the PM’s Make in Malaysia programme will be derailed without fresh investment. When first world outrage meets third world reality, what we get is a surfeit of legislation and a spiraling deficit of justice. We can enact all the laws we want, but in a country where very few interactions with the forces of administration occur without needing force or inducement the law on paper not only becomes ineffective, but it often turns into an instrument of exploitation. We seek minute perfection at the top, but make do with routine injustice at the bottom, and react only when the injustice turns horrific, preferably in a large metro town involving someone from the educated middle class. The disinterest in fixing the realities on the ground means that every new incident that displeases us, creates fresh outrage and new acts of tokenism. The cycle is seemingly never-ending, and hopes that someday, the realization will dawn that nothing has really changed, have so far been belied.A rule of law is not about creating the best legislation, but it is about creating a sense of predictable order. It comes from people knowing that there is a discernible relationship between action and consequence and that there is a price to pay for crossing boundaries that have been set. When things work as they are meant to, in an everyday unglamorous way. Where getting routine tasks accomplished is an act that is truly routine, and not a heroic endeavor. An environment of certainty needs the uneventful discharge of everyday responsibilities by those charged with these roles.

When a problem occurs, an administrative tantrum is thrown. In praise of boring governance
Saying "The assets are good, I'm sure they will rise again" is hardly satisfactory. Bland rhetoric empty of substance just won't do when RM40 billion debt isn't a big deal? What would happen to us all if this actually does collapse
vitiates the investment climate because of several factors — extreme complexity of UMNO's politics combative and rent seeking attitude of UMNO war lords, aggressive pursuit of revenue targets,The political class has made it worse by often using the department to settle scores with political rivals, upright bureaucrats or even an investigating journalist. Remember the witch-hunt against those even remotely connected with the sting operations against a former defence minister Najib?
 over dependence on judicial remedy dependent on judicial outcome., extensive recourse to retrospective measures, and contentious interpretations of legal provisions. This not only renders the entire process of appeals and judicial review virtually infructuous, it also creates huge uncertainty for investors. The upshot is a strong negative perception aboutMalaysia  as an investment destination. This is not good for Make in Malaysi.These features, which have created an environment of great uncertainty and outright harassment for both domestic and foreign direct investors, must be urgently addressed if Malaysiais to revert to a high growth trajectory.
many ways, this is the single biggest problem that the country- its inability to translate legislative intent into delivered reality. Without fixing this, political will, elusive as it is in any case, counts for little.
Over the last few years, we have seen the gradual emergence of the idea of citizenry. As we transition from locating ourselves in a social matrix to a more civic one, we start depending much more on the rule of law. The ability of societal mechanisms to provide order, and to create a sense of right and wrong, acceptable and unacceptable is rapidly diminishing. The societal interdependencies begin to play a less significant role, and the responsibilities shift to more secular structures like the state  transformation and the obvious opportunity of leveraging our abundant English speaking talent. For many of us, that period is best described as a ‘hurricane of happy change’.But as we look around today, that time is almost like a sail in the pond. The earth seems to be spinning at a pace that is dizzy. Over the last ten years, frontiers have been defied and horizons repainted in colours hitherto unknown.


Today, the largest company in the world owes the significant majority of its revenues to products that did not exist till very recently. Apparently, there are almost 100 billion searches each month on Google, up 100 times since just a few years ago. Technology is changing so rapidly that if you are undertaking a 4 year technical course it is possible by the 3rd year that about half of what you learned in the 1st year has become obsolete. A study in developed labour markets indicates that the top ten jobs today were unheard of ten years ago. Do not believe it? Think – App Developer, Cloud Services Manager, Social Media Manager and Sustainability Expert. Get the picture?
What does one do when confronted with change of such velocity? Who dares to attempt answer the question? On the contrary, there is abundant spice to cloud the confusion that business people are faced with currently.  A few weeks ago, a leading daily featured an amazing Indian technology company, Zohology. This company is based in Chennai and is fast becoming the new darling of tech-watchers. Zohology obviously knows how to impress, with more than 100,000 customers across 100 countries on their books. What is their mantra? They believe in acquiring a deep knowledge of their customers and then teaching each client how to do their business better. The story of Apple and Steve Jobs is legendary. The mercurial Mr. Jobs did not quite ask customers what they want; he re-defined their needs with every innovation. Nothing can argue success, but how can we follow a model built by the extraordinarily gifted and delivered with maniacal brilliance?
Then there are enterprises who make their customers ‘work’ for them – when I get on to Google I am helping them enhance their own information about me. The better they get, the more I like them. The more I use Google, the better they get! Duo Lingo is a free service for learning languages. They get users to translate text as part of the learning process. You learn your chosen language; they get a free translator and the opportunity to sell translation services! In the book ‘Wired and Dangerous’ Chip Bell and John Patterson talk about the balance of power having moved from the corporation to the customer because of the Internet. The web has created a market without boundaries where information moves at the speed of electrons. There is a lot of noise and it is growing, making it difficult to be heard. Even as new fortunes are built there are no guarantees for survival. I am pretty sure someone will soon coin a word to replace ‘adaptation’ – there just is not time for all that jazz anymore!Get the picture? Well, I do not. It is a new jungle with amazing opportunity and incredible danger lurking side by side. If you are in business and serious about it, then bear in mind, this time there are no rules.


Deputy Finance Minister Ahmad Maslan will scare away investment if it is allowed be  in the Finance Ministry he tries hard to convince that all's well with 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad) without specifically addressing the issues which gave rise to the misgivings in the first place.The rakyat want clear answers to the questions raised. How can he say "I hope he gets the correct information on 1MDB" when he does not furnish such information or, one suspects, he himself does not have such information?1MDB have never missed a payment schedule, and its consistent ability to raise funds on the international markets and from quality investors, reflects the confidence that they place in the company.The RM40 billion debt is obviously a small problem to Ahmad Maslan. He must think 1MDB doesn’t need to repay it. Not to mention the mind-boggling leakages that came with the borrowing and refinancing
