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?

MANEK URAI At last the final official result of the Manek Urai by-election – PAS won with a very slim majority of 65 votes – PAS Abe Uji got 5,340 votes against Tuan Aziz 5,283. I was rather surprised not because PAS won or UMNO-BN lost but it’s the majority. I expected the majority to be between 1000-1500 votes. Not that I being a sore loser, in this case my expectation, but with such a slim victory surely something is not right. PAS and it’s PR partners should all sit down for some serious soul-searching session on what went wrong, and what contributed to the slim victory. PAS should be blamed for the poor result as they have been over harping on the ‘unity talk’ of late. I read a comment posted by a voter from Manek Urai who was not in favor of the ‘unity talk’, that he may as well vote for BN if that is the case. In the first place these voters don’t like UMNO-BN and now PAS wants to kowtow them. What the hack!

Anakdesa says what ever the so-called ‘unity talk’ is only UMNO’s ploy of ‘divide and rule’ tactic. They are damn good with this tactic works, but then again it all depends on the other party whether they are a fool or otherwise. This tactic was applied over and over again in Sabah with all the non-muslim bumiputra and the non-bumiputra population divided into smaller fractions with so many political parties to represent them. This has made Sabah it’s way into the Guinness Book of Record for having the most political parties in Malaysia, if not in the world.

Abe Uji - PAS

Abe Uji - PAS

Was it because the BN was clever in manipulating the situation or was it the Sabah so-called leaders who were actually damn STUPID. Or was the Sabah so-called leaders genius that they managed to convinced the central government to register and  accept their parties into BN, in return of position in the government where they can accumulate wealth?

Anakdesa has no political affiliation, so whoever had won in Manek Urai bears little significant to me. If I am a voter in Manek Urai, I’ll be choosing between the devil and the deep blue sea. However given no choice to choose as there are only UMNO-BN and PAS candidates, I would rather X-ed PAS. I’ve no lost love for UMNO-BN after what they have done to Sabah with it’s ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic and how they manipulated the PATI (pendatang asing tanpa izin), issuing them with I/Cs so that they can vote for BN. These have made the local lost their rights as Malaysian citizens in many aspects such as medical facilities, night-market business etc. Not to mention the increased in crimes – drugs, rapes, housebreaking, murder  etc. which was committed by these PATI.

Tuan Aziz - BN

Tuan Aziz - BN

As I’ve written in my earlier artical ( READ HERE ), UMNO-BN needs to change it’s leaders attitude who, many said are full of  CORRUPTIONCRONYISM, RACIST, FAVOURITISM AND ARROGANT attitudes. They need to change or will surely be changed in the next general election.

Coming back to Manek Urai by-election, PAS should understand that the ‘unity’ talk is actually a ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic of UMNO. They know very well that PR is growing each day and so the only way to break PR is by using this tactic thus creating suspicion among the members of PR. Ostensibly to unite the community, PAS members however believe Najib meant to weaken their party and to break it apart from its Pakatan partners PKR and DAP. If PAS believe this is so then why are they continuing talking about ‘unity talk’ with UMNO-BN? Is it true that Najib is willing to divide the community just for the sake of his political games and hold on to power?

Anakdesa says to PAS – don’t be a fool or being fooled!

Now lets analise the result of the by-election. Manek Urai is a really rural Malay heartland where most (99%) of it’s voters are Malays, yet the UMNO-BN was unable to capture the seat despite deploying enormous resources and promises such as bridge of votes. This is something that Datuk Seri Najib as the President of UMNO and BN should take cognizance of, he can’t win in a Malay heartland by-election, wonder what hope does he have in other mix-areas!

Or was the loses contributed by his Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin who stepped on the toes of the Manek Urai Malays when he  belittle Mohd Fauzi (PR candidate), a self-made trader with a thriving fish-wholesaling business. These might have hurt the Malays as most of these Malays voters are simple and friendly people. Then came the DPM from the urban, belittling and describing Mohd Fauzi as a mere fishmonger, a humble profession for most of Kelantanese rural folks. It is actually an insult to all fishmonger and fishermen. How could someone made a visit your house and say it is a bad habit to eat with your fingers when it is your culture. Isn’t that an insult to to your culture? Sometimes some people just don’t use their brain when they talk!

Or the promise of a bridge be built the very next day should they win the by-election. Isn’t this a very unrealistic promise. To build is of course realistic but to build it the very next day??? I just couldn’t believe this when I heard him said this in TV1. If those words were uttered by any man on the street, I might just smile and said “oh what the hell, what does he know about building a bridge” or maybe he was talking about building a wooden bridge with no proper architectural plan which needed a few months to draw. But when it came from the number 2 man-in-command, no dictionary can describe my astonishment.  Only a fool would believe that can happen. If you say to demolish Petronas Twin Tower the next day, I would incline to believe as that is possible with thousands kilos of C4 placed all round the building structure! After that with just a push of a button,  Petronas Twin Tower will vanish in the thin air.

This is the kind of empty/unrealistic promises especially made during election 0r by-election time just to buy votes and these are the kind of leaders we have in Malaysia! Ahhh… by the way, isn’t this corruption? No I presume as the words came from the people that walk the corridor of power BUT yes if it came from the mouth of the opposition.

Anyway, with a 65 majority, a win is still a win! RIGHT? SO WHAT!

SHAH ALAM (July 13, 2009) : The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) seized files on allocations expenditure by seven Selangor state assemblymen from the Petaling District Office two weeks ago and have been questioning recipients of the money since.

Calling it a harrasment of their constituents, the seven assemblymen are planning to lodge a complain with the MACC advisory board member Tun Hamid Mohamed.

Those who had their files seized are Teresa Kok (DAP-Kinrara), Elizabeth Wong (PKR-Bukit Lanjan), Edward Lee (DAP-Bukit Gasing), Hannah Yeoh (DAP-Subang Jaya), Dr Cheah Wing Yin (Damansara Utama), Ean Yong Hian Wah (DAP-Seri Kembangan) and Lau Weng San (DAP-Kampung Tunku).

Teresa Kok3Kok, who led the press conference held on the sidelines of the Selangor state assembly sitting today, said: “The MACC’s actions seem to be politically motivated because they are only targeted at Pakatan Rakyat (PR) elected representatives.”

She pointed out that there had been no follow up to reports lodged early last year on some Barisan Nasional assemblymen who had spent their entire RM500,000 allocation for 2008 within the first two months of that year, adding that the MACC seems to be interest more in netting ikan bilis (small fish) compared to bigger cases such as the Port Klang Freetrade Zone.
“We are also wondering why the MACC has targeted only the Chinese assemblymen,” Kok queried.

She said the imam and committee members of a mosque in her constituency to which she had donated a set of RM10,000 speakers to had been summoned and questioned by the MACC more than once.

“What is our offence? That we used our allocations to help our constituents? What is their motive?” Kok asked, saying that they did not know about the seizure of the files until the recipients of the funds called to say they were being summoned by MACC.

Wong said she had received a call from an organiser of a Deepavali Carnival in her area saying that he was called up and questioned by the MACC pertaining allocations received.

“I consider this as harassment and intimidation of my constituents,” she said.

ElizabethWongYeoh meanwhile said her assistant received a call from the MACC on Friday inquiring about a RM10,000 allocation for a health clinic.

“We hold this health clinic two to three times a year for those in the lower income group in my constituency which does not have a government health clinic,” she said adding that no one from MACC attended the clinic which was held at Indah Court in PJS11 although invited.

“All our expenditure is transparent and available on my blog, I have nothing to hide,” she added.

Yeoh said the MACC should concentrate on those who had misused the people’s money instead of harassing and intimidating the public and checking on monies allocated for beneficial programmes for the people.

Kok added MACC should check on the Deputy Prime Minister’s offer to the people of Manek Urai to build a RM7 million bridge if they put BN in power in their area.

“Is this not a bribe?” she asked.

The government’s money is after all from the people’s taxes and the federal government has a duty to use their money for the benefit of the Manek Urai people, thus if the people there need a bridge then the government should build it and not use it as a pawn to garner votes, said Kok.

kangarooAnakdesa says to all Malaysian, please check with MACC and PDRM should any of you receive assistance such as water-tank, zinc sheet etc from your wakil rakyat especially during election or by-election. These assistance could be a bribe and recipient could be hauled up by MACC. Is this one of the many evil ways, the people that walk the corridor of power, harass and undermine the opposition lead state? This rather a sad chapter in the histroy of our so-called democratic country. MACC is so effecient and is learning fast and is in the process of following the footstep of our judiciary which has pratically destroy the Malaysian constitution in order to please it’s master.

Dr M: I don’t believe Khir’s mansion costs only RM3.5mil

KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is not convinced with former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo’s claim that his controversial mansion costs only RM3.5mil.

“He cannot simply say he bought the mansion for RM3.5mil. I believe it is more than that,” he said.

“I also have a home in Seri Kembangan. I have spent RM1mil on it, but this (Dr Khir’s mansion) is massive – many times bigger than mine,” he said.

Anakdesa says  why is this particular politician think that he can fool the people claiming that his mansion cost only RM3.5 million. Every man in the street can estimate the cost of houses around Shah Alam. The rakyat is not stupid if you think that they will just swallow all your words, just like the Disneyland trip. Even Tun M doesn’t believe this clown!

Well Datuk Seri PM, what are you going to do about this? Just sweep it under the carpet? Let the MACC carry out their investigation, just for show and then stamped it “No Further Action”???

Anakdesa says to Khir  Toyo, lots of scandals are being said and linked to you and as this was your very own words regarding scandals  “Malaysians were not ready to accept leaders afflicted with scandals and given this, Bukit Lanjan Assembly rep Wong should relinquish all her positions., you should step down as state opposition leader, ADUN and all that you stand on your moral high ground.

I can’t stand hypocrites! To HELL with hypocrites!

I came across this article by one Muhammad Abdullah which was published by Malaysiakini. After reading the article, I realised that what Muhammad Abdullah had written was absolutely true. It seems that he shared the same ideology as Raja Petra Kamaruddin. I’m taking the opportunity here to republish the article to be shared with all Malaysian. Give it a thought……with an open mind! TRY not to be too racist!

Muhammad Abdullah | Oct 7, 08 4:42pm (Malaysiakini)

It’s funny now when I recollect my experience as a new convert to Islam. I was told by the ustaz whom performed the ceremony:‘Do not follow the Malays but follow the Quran’. I did not understand then what it meant and I brushed aside his advice at that time in ignorance.

After looking at the events that are unfolding in Malaysia, I am beginning to understand what the ustaz meant. In Malaysia, it is a fallacy that Malays equal Islam as what is being practiced by the Malays is not what is propagated by the Prophet (pbuh) or according to the Quran. I am not saying that there aren’t any following the teachings, as I know many who do.

The more I read the Quran, the more I understand how it is being practiced here. Raja Petra Kamaruddin wrote: ‘My god is different from your god’ in ‘Malaysia Today’ on how he viewed Islam as being practiced by some in Malaysia.

I am in the position to understand better how the non-Muslims are feeling about the Malays and Islam at large as far as Malaysia is concerned. They are not against Islam but they are against discrimination and falsehood being practiced as Islamic in Malaysia.

A Malay-Muslim in Malaysia can say anything and everything about the non-Muslim and it is totally acceptable but not so for non-Muslims as they can’t even hold a forum to discuss about conversion to Islam as it is presumed a crime against Islam.

They feel that the non-Muslims are challenging Islam or even more so the Malays. If this isn’t double standards than what is? If you are a Malay-Muslim, you have every right to voice your opinions but you won’t allow non-Muslims to even hold a forum to discuss about their issues or problems.

Islam is a peaceful religion but are we are showing the non-Muslims and the whole world how ‘peaceful’ we are in our conduct?

I bet many Malay-Muslims will never understand the predicament of the non-Muslims in this country because they have never been on the other side neither are they willing to sit down at the same table to discuss matters.

I grew up in a Malay kampung when I was young and I was treated with more respect by the Malay folk even when I was practicing a different faith then. They would come over to my house during the festive seasons to enjoy the feast and they were very much Muslims.

But that has changed now as it is considered to be un-Islamic to visit the house of a non-believer! How sad that some religious bigots have influenced the minds of the Malays over the years.

Non-Muslims will always be skeptical about Islam and Muslims in this country as long as the Malays behave opposite to what is taught by the Quran. It hurts me more to see how the Holy Book has been distorted by some and misunderstood by many.

May I quote Surah Al-Nahl, Ayat 125: ‘Invite (all) to the Way of the Lord with wisdom and beautiful discourse; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for the Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.’

To be respected, respect others first and try to understand before being understood. I truly wish the Muslims in Malaysia would take stock of our deeds as we are answerable during Judgment Day. Whatever we do, Allah knows it all.
