It has been a bit too long since I last voiced out my views on the scenario around me, be it political or anything under the sun. I received a lot of messages from people who shared the same thoughts on some of the articles that I have written here asking me whether I have foregone my belief. I wouldn’t say that I have backtracked on neither my past views nor my present view that we need changes to have a better place for all Malaysian. A place for all Malaysian and not just for certain races only. When I first started this blog, it’s was only meant to voiced and express my dissatisfaction on what was happening around me and never once I expected quite a number of visitors, some giving good comments and some otherwise. To all 17,700+ visitors, I thank you for sharing my thoughts whether you all agreed on my personal views or otherwise.

What kept me away from expressing my views? Has the country changed for the better ever since and I have nothing more to comment? Or what’s happening around me is to my satisfaction and should not be commented? I wish from the bottom of my heart those are the real reasons why I took such a long “leave” from my blog. But sad to say NO… that’s not the reason why. The country has not changed for the better nor is the situations around us any better. Corruptions, racism, cronyism, judiciary, the men in blue, politicians, PATI, to name a few, are worst than ever. Those that walk down the corridors of powers still and will always will steps on and fools those man-on-the-street, unless changes are made. Then why stop expressing my views? Personally, I say… I have had enough of what’s going on around me. Why should I, an ordinary man-on-the-street, keep on writing and expressing my views when our so-called leaders are acting ignorant of all the wrongs that are happening around them? They keep on manipulating wrongs to make them look good but the situation remains. They keep on fooling the people around with their twisted tongue with promises with which the problem remained unsolved. Let me take one good example, the problem with PTIs. Our previous DPM (now PM) promised to resolve the problem to the extent that a RM50 million was allocated to complete the exercise. The people of Sabah were jubilant and said at last there’s light at the end of the tunnel to this problem. Light? What light was there to see? The only light that I see is that we are being fooled once again. The light was so bright even a fool can see what’s really happening. The men-in-the-street are being fooled by the same people whom they voted to walk in the corridors of powers. It is disgusting to be fooled but what can I say, the fooled are the one that are really fools. They are the one that kept these twisted tongue politicians in power to fool them! They loved to be fooled as they are fools themselves.

Then why have I “resurrected” and started to write again. The reason behind my “resurrection” is a blog which I accidentally came across and I was quite impressed by the blogger’s frank and straight forward views. Not that I believe in all what was posted but it was the blogger’s spirit of wanting changes. One thing that I share and salute this man is his firm stance on his belief. We can’t expect everyone to support us on our belief totally neither do we support others of theirs totally. He is no politician, just an ordinary man-on-the-street with his own views and stances. His writing in his blog rejuvenated my spirit to revisit and resurrected my “dead” blog. Being just me, my thoughts and my lappy, sometimes made me think that I am all alone here hoping and wanting for changes. But after seeing this man’s articles and the so many comments by others in his FB made me realised that there are so many other out there who wants changes. I know that I am not alone in expressing my views in blogs.

tmi-nKUALA LUMPUR, July 19 — Umno-controlled newspapers, Berita Harian and Mingguan Malaysia, today slammed critics for demonising the country’s graft-busters over Teoh Beng Hock’s death, with one suggesting there is an agenda to weaken Malay-controlled institutions.

Both newspapers accused the opposition of politicising the political secretary’s death on July 16, with Mingguan saying the federal opposition Pakatan Rakyat (PR) was using the incident to divert attention away from internal problems and weaknesses.

But Berita Harian suggested the agenda was to weaken Malay-controlled institutions in the article, “Kematian Teoh timbulkan pelbagai spekulasi politik”, written by the New Straits Times group managing editor Zainul Ariffin Isa.

I am utterly disgusted by the editor’s comment, as he is still indulge in race politics after 52 years of independent.

berita2Here we have a Malaysian dead while in the custody of a government agency and suddenly this propagandists in Utusan and Berita Harian start to spin it into a racial issue. Not one report before this that I read regarding the death spoke about race until these papers start to spin the actual facts. People are just concern on the circumstances surrounding the death regardless of the deceased race. Malaysian just wants the truth and nothing but the truth. Why spin the story and make it so racist?

Is this what the new 1Malaysia about? Other races can’t question any government agency and if by doing so, means weakening Malay-controlled institutions? What an idiotic journalism is this? The people are not anti-Malay-controlled institution but the action and manner of MACC questioning “witnesses”. I believe that there are a lot of good people in MACC but certain blacksheeps are the real culprits who have actually tarnished the institution. These balls-polishers are just too eager to play ‘god’ and  to please their master even if it means ‘eliminating subject’. Just look at how they made a witness stand 4 hours during interrogation demanding that he confess for things that he did not do. Remember the police report made by one Zul, A Simpang Renggam Municipal Council administrator and the 46-year-old UMNO division leader from Maran, Pahang on how they were physically abused? Come on lah…these are two are also Malays lah. Are they weakening the Malay-controlled institution when they made the reports? The Berita Harian did not say so at that point of time. Now that the dead is a Chinese and people question and demanded answers, they say it is weakening the Malay-controlled institution! The whole point here is that Malaysian knew how impartial and incompetent the MACC is.

How can we Malaysian can ever live as Malaysian if this kind of journalists are continuing to raise racist issue. Each time an issue of this magnitude surfaces, these UMNO controlled paper will bring in the race card to intimidate the other races and try to galvanize one race.

Shouldn’t the police steps in and charged these people who fan anti-sentiment among the people. Maybe ISA-ed them or is the ISA is also meant for certain race only?

manoharaShe may be one of the most famous faces in Indonesia at the moment and on her way to becoming a television star, but like anyone, Manohara Odelia Pinot still needs her family in times of crisis. Now she has an extra member to count on for support; her stepfather Juergen Reiner Noack Pinot has flown to Jakarta to support her over recent reports that her biological father has sided with Muhammad Fakhry.
The Indonesian-American model’s mother, Daisy Fajarina, said Reiner arrived on Thursday night. “He is here to morally support Manohara as he has always loved her very much,” she said. “He was also shocked to know that her biological father was not supporting her.” The 17-year-old caught media attention after Daisy claimed her daughter had been abducted and abused by Fakhry, and she became an instant celebrity after escaping from Fakhry in Singapore six weeks ago, returning to Indonesia on June 1.
Fakhry has filed a police report in Malaysia against Manohara, accusing her of making false allegations.The latest episode in the family drama came this week when the Malay Mail newspaper published an interview with Manohara’s biological father, George Manz, and a letter it alleged he wrote to Fakhry saying he was the right person to take care of Manohara, pledging to help him get her back to Malaysia. The letter ended: “My wishes are that Manohara is freed from her evil mother.”
Daisy hit back two days later, saying she was shocked by Manz’s stand to defend the Kelantan royal, accusing him of being abusive to her and her then young child. “What kind of father is he? He knows that his daughter has been hurt and he backs Fakhry instead. What a horrible father,” she said.
She said Reiner arriving in Jakarta was a great boon. “Manohara and [her sister] Dewi are very happy and he will be here for the foreseeable future,” she said. During his time here, she added, Reiner would accompany Manohara to shoots on her new soap opera, “Manohara,” now being produced by Sinemart for TV channel RCTI.
Malaysian media reported that Fakhry had filed two applications in a Shariah court over the weekend — one seeking reconciliation with Manohara and the other ordering Daisy and Manohara to pay him 972,750 Malaysian ringgit ($272,000) that he claims they owe him.

What kind of a father is this! Happy be to those children who are poor but have a loving father that will stand by their side no matter what. Even the dogs and pigs will fight off their enemies to protect their children. Here we have a human-being going against his very own flesh and blood! Wonder which category does this man falls under – human, animal or evil?

Then again Anakdesa asked….was he paid to go against his own daughter?

Who Mastermind The Murder Of Altantuya?

Who Masterminded The Murder Of Altantuya?

SHAH ALAM: The leave application by the father of murdered Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu to quash the prosecution’s decision not to appeal against the acquittal of political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda will be mentioned at a High Court here on July 8.

The matter will be called before a deputy registrar to ensure that parties had filed all required documents for the hearing proper.

On Tuesday, Judicial Commissioner Justice Noraini Abdul Rahman ordered Altantuya’s father, Dr Shaariibuu Setev, to file submissions-in-reply to both respondents’ papers.

Setev had on Dec 24 last year filed an application for judicial review to quash the Attorney-General’s decision not to appeal against Razak’s acquittal.

He had named the Attorney-General and Razak as respondents in his application.

What a sad ending for those two guys who were condemned to death for murdering Altantuya. If I am in their shoes, I will surely upside down the bucket and let all the rubbish out, like who are involved and instructed them to commit the murder. Why suffer while the master-mind is happily enjoying the fruit of their pending death? They might have murdered her but what’s their motive? They have no connection with her before they were instructed to neutralized her. Instructions must have been given to them to neutralized her BUT by whom? Before the real culprit or culprits is/are charged for instrumenting the neutralization of Altantuya, then justice is deem to have not been carried out.

Originally the Attorney-General charged Abdul Razak Baginda for conspiring, then when High Court judge Justice Mohd Zaki Md Yasin acquitted and discharged him, the AG decided not to appeal. My simple conclusion is that the AG is incompetent or was there an instruction not to appeal? Why charged him in the first place and then said “had made a finding of fact in its decision (the court)”. Was charging him in the first place just part of the ‘wayang kulit’ and ‘let the court decide’ decision. A decision which was pre-arranged? Only GOD knows the real truth and the FIRE OF HELL is awaiting the real culprit no matter how religiously he/she pray for forgiveness. As I have said again and again, we might run away from the truth, use our richness and political connection on earth to hide ourselves from the evil we do on earth but we can never run nor hide from our Creator.

MAY THE RAGING FIRE OF HELL AWAITS THE MURDERER/S!

Yesss…I am glad that I was wrong this time round in my previous article and I hope that it will stay the way it is i.e. Anakdesa was wrong with his crystal ball!

KAJANG, Fri: The Home Ministry will not dispute the decision of the court to release blogger Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin from detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA), said its minister, Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar. Read more…

 SHAH ALAM: Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin succeeded in his bid to obtain a release order from his two-year detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

High Court judge Justice Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad allowed the blogger’s habeas corpus application on Friday.Justice Syed Ahmad also ordered for Raja Petra to be brought to the Shah Alam High Court before 4pm Friday for his immediate release.Upon hearing the court decision, the crowd seated at the packed public gallery clapped and cheered.

This prompted the judge to tell the crowd that “this is a court of law”, which caused the court to be silent, albeit briefly.

The court erupted again with claps and shouts from the public gallery when the judge said that Raja Petra had to be brought to the court for his release on the same day.

At the outset of court proceedings, Justice Syed Ahmad ruled that the grounds for the detention order by Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar for the blogger did not fall under the scope of Section 8(1) of the ISA.

Therefore, the judge said the Sept 22 detention order was unlawful.

Raja Petra was detained on Sept 12 on the grounds that he had intentionally and recklessly published articles which were critical and insulted Muslims, the purity of Islam and the personality of Prophet Muhammad.

It was said to have caused anxiety and anger among Muslims in the country. He had also allegedly published defamatory articles concerning national leaders which could affect public order and prejudice national security.

He was said to have published the said articles in the Malaysia Today news portal between Jan 16 and Sept 12 this year.

The Home Minister was named as the sole respondent in the application.

Raja Petra was taken to the Kamunting detention camp on Sept 23.

The minister had issued the order against the blogger under Section 8 of the same Act.

However, the judge said Section 8 of the same Act is constitutional as it falls within the ambit of the Article 149 of the Federal Constitution.

(Article 149 is regarding actions to be taken against anyone who participates in any activities which could pose a threat to national security even if it violates their fundamental liberties).

“I find that there is no merit by the counsel’s argument that Section 8 is unconstitutional as it does not fall under Article 149,” he said.

“Section 8 can only be reviewed under procedural non-compliance as provided under Section 8B(1) of the same Act,” he added.

On lead counsel Malik Imtiaz Sarwar’s argument that the order was mala fide (in bad faith), Justice Syed Ahmad said: “Mala fide is not procedural non-compliance under the ISA,” he said.

The judge said the court only has the power for judicial review for matters which violated the procedures under the ISA.

The judge also commented that the ISA was promulgated not only to counter communism or subversive activities but also to halt any activities which caused a threat to national security.

Outside the court later, Raja Petra’s wife Marina Lee Abdullah said she was very happy with his impending release.

“I am glad that everything turned out well as I had hoped. It is a fantastic breakthrough. “I hope there will be a change in the country,” said Marina, who was accompanied by daughters Sarah, 19, and Suraya, 34. ( The Star ) 

Happy Marina

Though I welcome the news with great joy knowing that God protects the righteous, still I am a bit worry with the attitude of the Home Minister who is known for his arrogant attitude. He will find any means before 4pm to ensure that RPK is back behind the bars. Maybe sign another last minute ‘order’.

I wouldn’t be supprise that RPK will enjoy a few minutes of freedom and re-arrested again outside the courtroom. This we have seen happened and might happen again – TODAY!

No one wish to be wronged but I hope and wish I am wrong this time round for the sake of justice!

Justice is done today and I hope the Government especially the Home Minister will honorably accept the court verdict. The righteous will not be shackled under any circumstances, that is if the game is played under fair circumstances.

I foresee the coming days would indeed be very exciting with RPK back with more vengeance!

Welcome “HOME” RPK!
