The 5 Datuks - bintang glamour atau bintang perkhidmatan...


Pertama diwakili oleh seorang Tun yang menghantar pesanan WhatsApp (tolong, bukan wasap) menyatakan kejelikan melihat menteri setahun jagung (sebenarnya baru empat bulan lebih kurang) dianugerahkan bintang kehormatan (honorific title) negeri Melaka.

Kedua, seorang penggiat Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) yang juga menghantar pesanan WhatsApp, menuduh langkah Parti Tindakan Demokratik (DAP) menolak bintang kehormatan sebagai “protes atas ketuanan raja-raja Melayu.”

Saya amat setuju dengan orang tua bergelar Tun itu. Gunakanlah alasan dan kayu ukur apa pun, tindakan lima menteri itu menerima bintang kehormatan negeri Melaka adalah tidak bijak.

Ia memberi gambaran bahawa tidak ada sebarang perbezaan di antara menteri Pakatan Harapan (PH) dengan para pembesar kerajaan Barisan Nasional yang gilakan pangkat, gelaran dan kekayaan.

Maaf cakaplah kalau saya katakan ramai dalam parti masing-masing belum jelas apakah jasa mereka sehingga melayakkan mereka menerima darjah kehormatan itu.

Namun begitu saya tidak menafikan ada sebahagian kecil mereka yang berjasa dan terbukti kerana lama berjuang dalam pembangkang. Tetapi yang rakyat nilai sekarang adalah jasa dan prestasi mereka sebagai menteri Kabinet PH.

Rakyat jelata jengkel. Perbahasan dalam media sosial jelas menunjukkan majoriti rakyat jelata tidak bersetuju malah berasa loya dengan penganugerahan dan penerimaan bintang penghormatan tersebut.

Soalnya, apakah mereka ini diberikan bintang kerana pangkat mereka besar atau jasa mereka yang besar? Adakah bintang kehormatan diberikan kerana pangkat dan kedudukan atau jasa bakti kepada masyarakat, negeri dan negara? Kalau kerana pangkat mereka besar, siapakah yang memberikan mereka pangkat itu?

Adakah mereka mendapat restu orang atau pihak yang memberikan mereka pangkat yang besar itu sebelum bersetuju menerima bintang kehormatan tersebut? Kalau kerana berjasa, apakah jasa mereka yang terserlah sejak menjadi menteri?

Sebaliknya, di warung kopi pasar tani Pendang, Kedah, semalam saya mendengar rungutan rakyat jelata tentang menteri, menteri besar dan timbalan menteri PH yang tidak nampak kelibat sejak menang pilihan raya.

Mereka juga bersungut mengenai banyak masalah harian yang belum diatasi. Seorang daripada mereka bertanya, bolehkah menteri yang lahir dan membesar di bandar raya faham susah payah hidup rakyat jelata di kampung dan desa?

Menteri yang dimaksudkan itu berkata anugerah bintang Melaka yang diterimanya akan memberikannya semangat untuk lebih tekun berkhidmat kepada rakyat jelata. Apakah undi dan mandat rakyat jelata belum memadai untuk memberikan beliau semangat?



Perlu Peka

Kalau pemimpin PH peka atau dalam lain bahasa, lebih baik daripada pemimpin BN, mereka perlulah sedar bahawa kita kini berada dalam persekitaran baru. Kita sedang menyusun semula keutamaan dan tingkah laku politik kita. Gerak geri kita sedang diperhatikan oleh semua pihak.

Kita kena ingat bahawa ketika pilihan raya umum lalu, ada di kalangan anggota golongan feudal yang “berkempen” untuk mengekalkan BN dengan menghina PH, khususnya Pengerusi PH, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Saya setuju dengan pendirian DAP tidak menggalakkan pemimpinnya mengutamakan bintang kebesaran sebaliknya menumpukan perhatian kepada menunaikan amanah rakyat jelata.

Bagi saya, ini bukan soal “protes atas ketuanan Raja-raja Melayu” atau apa-apa, tetapi isu dasar. Sepatutnya semua parti PH mengutamakan khidmat kepada rakyat jelata dan membentuk persekitaran yang lebih sama rata (egalitarian) bukan memanjangkan amalan feudalisme, kelas dan kasta.

Lagipun bintang kehormatan semakin hari semakin tidak bermakna apabila diberikan seumpama “door gift” majlis kenduri kepada orang yang entah apa-apa latar belakangnya – termasuk ketua kongsi gelap, kaki pukul dan gedebe.

Melaka bukanlah sebuah negeri besar. Tapi dalam majlis penganugerahan kali ini, selain lima orang menteri, 414 yang lain turun terima bintang dan gelaran. Boleh baca DI SINI.

Saya harap, dalam Malaysia baru ini marilah kita muliakan balik institusi-institusi negara agar masing-masing berada di tempat yang diperuntukkan oleh Perlembagaan.

Ingatlah tidak seorang pun yang memijak bumi Malaysia dan menjunjung langitnya berada di atas Perlembagaan. Kita semua tertakluk kepada Perlembagaan.

Dan selagi kerajaan PH berkuasa – atas penentuan rakyat jelata - tolonglah utamakan perkhidmatan. Belum terlambat memperbetulkan kesilapan. Jadikan cerita bintang Melaka ini sebagai teladan dan sempadan. - A.Kadir Jasin

Suit 1 - Deepak wants Najib, Rosmah 
to cough up RM676m for land deal...

Carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishian has filed a RM676 million suit against former premier Najib Abdul Razak, his wife Rosmah Mansor and two companies for conspiracy and exerting undue influence on him over three parcels of land near Bukit Raja.

The 180 ha piece of land is said to have been the venue of the National Defence Study Centre which was supposed to have been built there in 2007. Besides naming Najib and Rosmah, Deepak named listed company Boustead Holdings Bhd and its subsidiary Bakti Wira Development Sdn Bhd as defendants.

In Deepak's statement of claim filed by the firm of Haniff Khatri and Co, he alleged that a privatisation agreement was entered into on June 8, 2005, involving Awan Megah Sdn Bhd to construct the defence centre. Following privatisation, Awan Megah offered Astacanggih Sdn Bhd, which is majority-owned by Deepak, to purchase the land for RM118.57 million and following this, an acquisition agreement was made in 2007.

Following the acquisition, Astacanggih paid Awan Megah RM13 million and raised a RM72.5 million bank guarantee to be used as a land bond for the privatised project. He further claimed that then Selangor Wanita Umno chief Raja Ropiaah Raja Abdullah (below), who owns Awan Megah, was a proxy of Najib and Rosmah.

He said Raja Ropiaah entered into another deal in 2010 to sell the land to GuppyUnip Sdn Bhd and this was against the original agreement entered into with Astacanggih. Deepak claimed that Raja Ropiaah was not supposed to sell the land when she was under obligation to the earlier deal with Astacanggih.

As a result, the businessperson filed a suit against Awan Megah and for which a hearing was held. Deepak claimed he was, however, forced to withdraw his suit against Awan Megah when pressured by the authorities.


Suit served

The businessperson claimed that it did not end there and alleged that Najib and Rosmah used Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) to acquire his 80 percent share of Astacanggih via Boustead through its subsidiary Bakti Wira. Deepak said, in the end, he was only paid RM30 million in 2012 for the 80 percent whereas the company was now worth more than that following the land acquisition.

He further claimed that while Boustead allegedly acquired his share when the land owned by the company was priced at RM14 per square feet, he said a week later, Boustead sold a portion of the land to a listed company for RM60 per square feet. According to his affidavit, Deepak, claiming losses, is seeking RM600 million in general damages, RM50 million of exemplary damages and RM26 million in aggravated damages

In addition, he wants the Companies Commission of Malaysian to ensure that his 80 percent holding in Astacanggih is returned to him. It is understood the suit was served on all parties -mk

Suit 2 - Ex-PM, wife owe me RM52.6m 
over condo project, says Deepak...

Former premier Najib Abdul Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor have appointed lawyer David Matthews to represent them in an RM52.6 million suit filed by carpet businessperson Deepak Jaikishan, his younger brother Rajesh Jaikishan, and their company Radiant Splendour Sdn Bhd.

Last month, when the case was called before Kuala Lumpur High Court judge S Nantha Balan, the couple had yet to appoint lawyers for the case. Deepak's lawyer Mohd Haniff Khatri Abdulla, who attended the case management session today, confirmed Matthews’ appointment when met by reporters from the High Court chambers.

Deepak, his brother, and their company had named Najib, Rosmah, Najib's brother, Ahmad Johari Razak, former Tabung Haji chairperson Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim and Bank Rakyat chairperson Shukry Mohd Salleh as defendants in the suit, which was filed on Sept 12.

The plaintiffs are claiming losses under the torts of conspiracy, fraud, malfeasance and abuse of process, all of which they alleged Najib and Rosmah are responsible for. This comes after Deepak, his brother, and their company were allegedly forced to take out an RM198 million loan from Bank Rakyat on behalf of Najib and Rosmah.

In turn, the plaintiffs’ ownership of a master title for 80 condominium units on a parcel of land in Kuala Lumpur had been used as the deed of assignment for the deal in 2008. In return, Radiant Splendour and the two plaintiffs were appointed as the proxies for Najib and Rosmah for the Menara Angkasaraya and Bukit Raja land deals worth RM2 billion.

However, on April 19, 2013, the plaintiffs entered into a settlement agreement with Bank Rakyat following failure to service the loan.  The plaintiffs claimed that due to the loan default, Najib’s brother, Johari, and his firm were appointed to sell the condominium at a loss in 2014.

It was further claimed that Deepak and the other plaintiffs were pressured by Najib and Rosmah as the pair allegedly did not want Deepak to agree to a suit filed by A Santamil Selvi, the widow of private investigator P Balasubramaniam, and her children. Senior lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah had been appointed by the former premier and his wife to represent Deepak in the first suit.

Deepak and the other plaintiffs are seeking RM10 million each from the five defendants, and another RM2.6 million in exemplary damages and aggravated damages as deemed fit by the court. This follows the losses the Jaikishans suffered after the sale of the condominium, which they claimed was made at the behest of the defendants below market price.

Consolidating two suits

Plaintiffs’ lawyer Haniff told reporters today he had informed Justice Nantha Balan that his clients wanted to consolidate this suit with a suit filed by Bank Rakyat against the Jaikishans. He added that the judge had fixed Nov 30 for the hearing on whether to consolidate the suit.

Haniff also said Justice Nantha Balan had asked whether the suit should be heard before the High Court’s commercial division or civil division, to which he argued it should be at the commercial division as the case stemmed from Bank Rakyat filing it there.

Bank Rakyat named Deepak, his brother and company as defendants following the purported default of the loan they had received. The other lawyers who are appearing for the defendants are Dhinesh Bhaskaran for Johari, Prem Ramachandran for Azeez, and Jagjit Kaur for Sukry. - mk

Jambatan bengok kembali...


Menteri Besar Johor berkata projek jambatan bengkok yang dikehendaki Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad tetapi ditolak oleh 2 perdana menteri sebelum ini mungkin menjadi kenyataan.

Datuk Osman Sapian berkata idea jambatan baharu menggantikan Tambak Johor itu, yang dicetuskan Dr Mahathir dari 1996 lagi, kini dalam perancangan semula.

“Itu adalah kehendak Dr Mahathir. Dulu dia suruh Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi tak mahu buat. Datuk Seri Najib Razak tak mahu buat.

“Saya ikut jika Dr Mahathir mahu jambatan ini diteruskan. Ia mempunyai banyak kebaikan,” katanya kepada pemberita di ruang legar Parlimen hari ini.

Perbincangan mengenai projek jambatan baharu menggantikan Tambak Johor yang digunakan sejak 1923 diadakan sejak 1997 namun menemui jalan buntu sehinggalah ia dibatalkan pada 2006.

Ia digelar jambatan bengkok kerana jambatan itu direka untuk melengkung dalam perairan negara sebelum bertemu dengan bahagian tambak di Singapura.

Perobohan tambak dalam perairan negara dijangka membolehkan kapal dagang melalui Selat Tebrau dan merancakkan industri di Tanjung Pelepas dan Pasir Gudang, dan melancarkan aliran air di Selat Tebrau. - fmt.

Disiplin DAP patut dicontohi...

Parti DAP telah menetapkan mana-mana pemimpinnya khas, wakil rakyat yang ingin menerima anugerah darjah kebesaran membawa gelaran Datuk hendaklah diruju kepada Jawatankuasa Ekskutif (CEC) parti itu terlebih dahulu.

Parti itu telah menetapkan garisan panduan itu ekoran timbul sedikit kontroversi dua orang wakil rakyatnya menerima anugerah Datuk Melaka dua tiga hari lepas. Pimpinan parti itu kurang bersetuju dengan penerimaan anugerah itu.

Penerimaan itu dianggap sebagai sesuatu yang tidak wajar memandangkan mereka baharu sahaja berkhidmat — jadi wakil rakyat, menerima anugerah itu dikira tidak sepadan dengan khidmat dan jasa mereka.

Begitulah cara DAP mentadbir partinya sangat disiplin dan tegas. DAP tidak main-main dengan sebarang unsur boleh menjejaskan imejnya.

Ni kata DAP...

Elok kalau parti-parti lain juga meniru prinsip DAP itu dan mengetakan disiplinnya agar para pemimpinnya tidak berbuat sesuatu yang boleh mencermarkan parti.

Tidak hairanlah kalau DAP muncul sebagai parti yang berdisiplin kerana ia tidak mudah berkompromai dengan mana-mana ahlinya yang melanggar prinsip parti itu. Sebenarnya disiplin dan ketegasan itulah meletakkan DAP sebagai parti yang disegani dan kian mendapat kepercayaan termasuk golongan cendekiawan Melayu.

Mengenai garisan panduan itu bukan bermakna DAP tidak menghormati anugerah darjah kebesaran yang diputarkan sebagai DAP sebagai anti Raja, tetapi demi meletakkan anugerah itu ke atas tapak seewajarnya, dan cara itu adalah untuk memastikan nilai darjah kebesaran itu dihormati dan bukan boleh diberi sesuaka hati.


Ni kata PPBM

Benar sepatutnya apa-apa anugerah atau bintang kebesaran diberikan kepada mereka yang berhak dan layak bukannya diberikan seakan-akan dicampak beras dan pada kepada ayam itik sahaja. Memberi anugerah itu kepada mereka yang tidak layak, menjadikan darjah dan bintang itu seperti “toto Siam” yang boleh dibeli di mana-mana.

Mengenai empat wakil rakyat yang sudah terlanjur menerima anugerah itu, DAP membenarkan mereka sebab ketika mereka menerima anugerah itu sebelum garis panduan itu disiapkan. Sikap ini sekali lagi menunjukkan DAP sebuah parti yang rasional.

Syabas sekali lagi kepada DAP, kerana secara tidak langsung mengajar parti-parti lain belajar menjadi sebuah parti yang bermaruah, tidak gilakan pangkat seperti seperti Umno, PKR, PPBM dan Amanah. - MSO

China Refuses To Return Fugitive Jho Low, So Mahathir Refused To Return Uighur Muslims...

China has always wanted a corrupt leader such as Najib Razak to lead Malaysia for obvious reason. A crook such as ex-premier Najib could easily be bribed, controlled and manipulated. Likewise, neighbouring Singapore also loved Najib, so much so that its founding father Lee Kuan Yew took the trouble to visit Najib’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, at her home in 2009 – a very rare visit request.

However, it’s also true that a corrupt leader, unless he is as brutal as Adolf Hitler or Kim Jong-Un, is typically quite dumb. Unlike Thai’s Thaksin Shinawatra or the Philippines’ Marcos, both Najib and Rosmah – drunk with power and arrogance – had failed to flee the country after their stunning defeat in the May 9th general election, thanks to their over-confidence.

Mahathir Mohamad is the last person both China and Singapore want to see as the prime minister of Malaysia. They would prefer prime-minister-in-waiting Anwar Ibrahim than the 93-year-old Mahathir as the leader. And they can’t wait for Mr. Anwar to take over. Anwar is easier to deal with at the “negotiation table” simply because he isn’t as smart as the old man.

Additionally, at his advanced age, Mahathir has nothing to lose so he can’t be intimidated, blackmailed, threatened and bribed. Adding salt to the injury, the old fox is also a man who talks in riddles. He said there’s nothing to fear from economic superpower China yet he was foaming at the mouth talking about a new form of colonialism during his August visit to China.

Image result for Fugitive Jho Low

PM Mahathir also expressed his belief that fugitive financier Jho Low (full-name: Low Taek Jho) is in China. Speaking at a meeting with the renowned U.S. Council on Foreign Relations in New York, he said – “It is quite tricky for us to accuse China of hiding him, so we are trying to work out some ways or private efforts to get back Jho Low from China.”

Can you see how the premier cleverly accuses China of harbouring Jho Low without actually accusing the superpower? It makes Beijing cracking its head whether to condemn Mahathir or not. As much as Jho Low, Najib’s partner-in-crime, is badly needed for his crime back in Malaysia, Mahathir has refused to ask “a favour” from Beijing for his repatriation.

The price will be exorbitant for the return of Jho Low as he holds the key to tens of billions of ringgit stolen from the national coffers. But every dog has its day. When Mahathir freed 11 ethnic Uighur Muslims who fled to Malaysia after a Thai jailbreak, he offered an unbelievable lame and childish excuse – that they did nothing wrong and had not broken any Malaysian laws.

It that was true, why were they being detained and charged with illegally entering Malaysia after breaking out of the Thai prison last November? Does that mean the Myanmar Rohingya Muslims can pull the same stunt and enter Malaysia illegally and thereafter demand to be sent to other countries of their choices? Should not the Uighur Muslims at least sent back to Thailand to face trials?

Under previous Najib regime, Malaysia was under great pressure from China to hand them over to China and not to Thailand. Beijing has accused the 11 Uighur Muslims, part of a group of more than 200 Uighurs detained in Thailand in 2014, as separatist extremists among the Uighur minority of plotting attacks on China’s Han majority in Xinjiang and other parts of China.


Image may contain: 3 people, people standing and outdoor

Not only Mahathir government dropped charges against the Uighurs on humanitarian grounds, the supposedly extremists were not deported to Thailand but instead sent to Turkey – their preferred destination. Obviously, it was a slap in the face of China because they are all Chinese nationals, not Turkish. Of course, China was furiously mad.

China – which had asked for their extradition – said last week it “resolutely” opposed Malaysia’s decision to release the 11 Uighurs and send them to Turkey, disregarding its request to hand them to Beijing. Back in February, under Najib regime, Malaysia said it was considering China’s request to extradite the 11 men. But Mahathir clearly refused to grant Beijing its satisfaction.

It was only partially true that the 11 Uighurs Muslims, desperately needed by Beijing, were freed under humanitarian ground. The release was deliberately carried out because Mahathir wanted to send a message. Since China refused to extradite Jho Low, Malaysia can on the same note refuse to extradite 11 Uighurs too.

By allowing the Uighur Muslims to travel to Turkey, the defiant Mahathir hopes to kill many birds with a stone. Besides protecting fellow Muslims in the Islam world, the prime minister is now seen as the beacon of human rights in the eyes of the West who refuses to be intimidated by a superpower. But the secret message to China is this – protecting fugitive Jho Low comes with a price. - ft

PAS akui prestasinya kian merosot...

Akhirnya, kepimpinan PAS yang diketuai Datuk Seri Hadi Awang mengakui bahawa di bawah kendaliannya, prestasi PAS kian merosot.

Saya tidak pernah berkata bahawa PAS kini telah kecundang, pun begitu saya berani untuk membuat ramalan bahawa selagi kepimpinan Hadi berterusan mengambil pendirian yang berbeza daripada apa yang pernah diperjuangkan oleh dua bekas Presiden PAS terdahulu iaitu arwah Fadzil Nor dan Yusof Rawa serta bekas Mursyidul Am arwah Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, tidak mustahil prestasi PAS akan terus merosot dalam lanskap politik Malaysia.

Menjawab kenyataan saya semalam, Setiausaha Agung PAS Takiyuddin Hassan berkata saya tidak seharusnya memandang remeh terhadap PAS walaupun parti itu menunjukkan prestasi yang lemah pada Pilihan Raya Umum 9 Mei lalu dan menyatakan bahawa walaupun prestasi PAS semakin merosot, ia tidak bermakna PAS telah kecundang.

Ahli Parlimen Kota Bharu itu berkata PAS menyertai pilihan raya tanpa bergantung kepada sokongan parti lain, tidak seperti Amanah, PPBM, apatah lagi DAP.

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Adakah Setiausaha Agung PAS membayangkan bahawa suatu hari nanti, PAS secara bersendirian boleh memenangi pilihan raya umum tanpa bantuan daripada mana-mana parti politik lain? Jika ya, pemimpin PAS mungkin hidup dalam dunianya sendiri, tidak berpijak di bumi yang nyata.

Institut Darul Ehsan (IDE) menerusi tinjauan pilihan raya yang dijalankannya menjelang Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Port Dickson membuat ramalan yang sangat tepat apabila mengatakan bahawa PAS “tidak dijangka mendapat lebih daripada satu peratus undi bukan Melayu”.

Adakah IDE salah? Bolehkah Takiyuddin atau mana-mana pemimpin PAS lain tunjukkan di mana salahnya ramalan IDE itu, dan bolehkah mereka tunjukkan bahawa PAS menang lebih daripada satu peratus undi bukan Melayu pada PRK Port Dickson?

Jika PAS tidak dapat memenangi satu peratus undi bukan Melayu di Malaysia, adakah ia mampu membentuk Kerajaan Persekutuan di Malaysia?

Ia bukan rahsia lagi, PAS mendapat sokongan tersirat daripada kepimpinan tertinggi Umno dalam PRK Port Dickson sebagai sebahagian daripada konspirasi politik Umno-PAS yang sedang giat dijalankan, namun satu-satunya faedah yang diperolehi PAS daripada pakatan tidak suci (unholy) dengan UMNO itu adalah deposit calon PAS terselamat!

Suatu kisah dahulu di Marang.

Sekiranya PAS bertanding bersendirian tanpa apa-apa bentuk “restu” daripada pucuk pimpinan Umno – walaupun kenyataan ini boleh disanggah dengan keputusan bekas Menteri Besar Umno Negeri Sembilan, Tan Sri Mohd Isa Samad untuk bertanding PKR Port Dickson – calon PAS akan kehilangan depositnya, seperti yang berlaku dalam Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-14 pada 9 Mei 2018

Saya tidak fikir bahawa kedua-dua bekas presiden PAS, Fadzil Nor dan Yusuf Rawa, serta bekas PAS Mursyidul Am Nik Aziz Nik Mat akan menganggap ia sebagai sesuatu yang membanggakan bagi PAS apabila parti itu sanggup menjalinkan pakatan tidak suci dengan Umno semata-mata mahu menyelamatkan deposit calon PAS di PKR Port Dickson.

Saya percaya bahawa pelampau politik dan oportunis dalam Umno serta PAS yang terjerumus ke dalam politik toksik dan berniat jahat yang memainkan isu kaum, agama, kebencian, ketakutan dan pembohongan akan tetap tewas dalam era maklumat di Malaysia dan keputusan PRK Port Dickson harus dijadikan pengajaran kepada pemimpin Umno dan PAS.

Saya tidak percaya bahawa 2.3 juta pengundi Melayu yang mengundi Umno dan 2 juta pengundi yang mengundi PAS semasa Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 mahu Malaysia berterusan menjadi negara penyangak, demokrasi palsu dan kleptokrasi global di mana pemimpin gagal ujian agama paling asas dalam membezakan yang benar dan yang salah, kebenaran dan pembohongan serta keadilan dan ketidakadilan.

Pakatan Harapan mahu mengubah Malaysia daripada kleptokrasi global kepada sebuah negara yang berintegriti, matlamat yang saya yakin akan disokong oleh mereka yang telah disesatkan untuk mengundi Umno dan PAS pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14. – Roketkini.com

Welcome back, Anwar Ibrahim...

 I know many disagree with me, but I still believe that de facto Pakatan Harapan leader Anwar Ibrahim deserves his shot at the hot seat. While I may not have liked the "PD gambit", it was a necessary political move for him to make.

The real electoral battle Anwar waged in Port Dickson was not with his six contenders, but with the vox populi of Harapan. While Harapan political operatives eventually jumped on board the Anwar Express, his main problem will always be with a certain segment of the coalition’s base.

With a significant mandate from Port Dickson, we will now discover if Anwar is the reformer he claims to be, or a Trojan horse of religious extremism. There is a lot riding on his return to official political life.

The Harapan base is divided on the issue of Anwar. Indeed, the various factions within PKR, either aligned with him or with other Malay power-brokers, are flashpoints that he has to deal with.

If this infighting prolongs, there will definitely be a split in Harapan. It is pointless telling people that all is well when the political operatives bicker in public, and the base contributes to the narrative that either Anwar is the saviour or destroyer of Harapan. Honestly, he could be both, and only time will tell.



What happens now?

What Anwar needs to do now is rally the PKR base around him. This will, of course, be extremely difficult, because the factions within the party will remain long after the dust of its internal elections has settled. But having said that, Anwar is in a much better position now that he has managed to secure a mandate from the people of Port Dickson.

Beyond that, he needs to convince the Harapan base that he is indeed the reformer his supporters claim he is. The main problem his detractors – friends, fellow columnists, and political operatives of Harapan – have with him is his religious and racial politics. But as I argued in another piece, that the criticisms levelled against Anwar are unfair, because those very criticisms are an indictment against Harapan's religious agenda in general.

“This, of course, is my main concern when it comes to Anwar. Truth be told, it is a concern of mine for most Malay political operatives. The old maverick Dr Mahathir Mohamad has a reputation for coddling but also confronting Islamic extremism in this country. Can we say the same of Anwar?

“This is what concerns me about Anwar assuming the highest office in the land but since, as I said, the other Malay powerbrokers – with a few exceptions of course – are not exactly the egalitarian types, what difference would it make?”

As I said, I just do not understand these criticisms. I have problems with the racial and religious politics of Harapan, but this is an issue with the coalition, not with the man. Be that as it may, it is incumbent on Anwar to reach out to the Harapan base and allay their fears. Now, as an elected representative, his words and deeds will come under even greater scrutiny.

When racial and religious issues crop up – and they will – other Harapan political operatives may get a free pass; but if Anwar says or does anything that isn’t kosher, his detractors will bay for his blood. This is a mistake, of course, because the religious impulses of Harapan do not begin or end with Anwar. We are talking about a coalition which may have a progressive base, but does not have a greater progressive majority.

As I explored here – “Some of my Malay friends who are religious claim that this strengthens the position of Islam in this country. It is a useful political tool and reminds the non-Malays who voted for Harapan that the Malay political actors in the coalition will defend Islam. These are folks who voted for Harapan and not the dreaded Umno and PAS people.”

No doubt with Anwar in play, Umno and PAS will attempt to use any and every opportunity to sow discontent in the Harapan base. They understand that when it comes to Anwar, that base is already sceptical of the man who, ironically, made regime change possible. This is why they, more than anything else, fear him.



Balancing game

Does this mean when it comes to racial and religious issues, someone like me is going to give Anwar a free pass? Not likely. But Anwar and his people should be savvy enough to not fall for the traps set by the Islamists in this country, and he should not stoop to play the racial and religious game, because unlike the old maverick, he has neither the support nor the goodwill of the majority of the base.

And it is going to be much more difficult for Anwar now. Whereas the Umno regime defined the Islamic narrative in this country, Anwar will now find himself the focus of the discourse.

As it is, many of my friends – who will always disagree with me when it comes to the issue of Anwar – are gearing up for a fight because they know sooner or later religious and racial issues which impact the majority will come into play. Do not forget that part of Anwar's base wants him to champion the Malay and Islamic cause. As I said, the Harapan base is not all progressive.

No matter what the political elites say, Anwar is waging battles on multiple fronts. He has to convince the progressive factions of Harapan while bearing in mind that he also represents Malay-Muslim rights. He has to get his house in order and worry about the other power structures that define mainstream Malay politics, who have had no problem using the security apparatus of the state against him in the past.

We will constantly be told that all is copacetic on the good ship Harapan, but how far Anwar goes to pander to the Malay right is predicated on how far the Malay power structures in Harapan do the same, and of course how far the non-Malay power structures go to not spook the Malays.

So welcome back Anwar Ibrahim. I know some from my community appreciate your antics lip syncing and prancing about to old MG Ramachandran tunes, but as an official representative of the Harapan government now, could you please endorse the move to recognise the United Examination Certificate to prove that the election manifesto isn’t worthless. That would be a good first move. - S, Thayaparan

Negara tenat hutang RM 1 trillion...

Inilah warisan dajjal yang ditinggalkan kepada rakyat dan kerajaan PH hari ini. Inilah bala Allah terhadap rakyat yang salah pilih pemimpin. Dajjal-dajjal ini masih bebas lagi, masih bernafsu hendak berkuasa untuk memperhambakan rakyat yang dikorupsikan dengan BRIM, menunaikan haji dan umrah dengan wang rompakan 1MDB dengan para pegawai tinggi songlap wang negara semau-maunya. Mereka menganggap UMNO akan terus berkuasa dan mereka akan bermaharajalela menimbun harta haram menurut jejak langkah maharaja penyamun kelas cakrawala yang hilang maruah, pupus hargadiri, gila kuasa, gelojoh dengan harta dunia, pinggirkan kuasa Allah, kini meroyan meratapi nasib malang bikinan sendiri.

Hari ini rakyat tanggung hutang negara RM1 trilion. Para dajjal masih menyalak. SPRM, PDRM dan Peguam Negara masih belum berjaya jebloskan dajjal-dajjal koruptor ini ke Sg Buloh. Lambat, membosankan rakyat menunggu tindakan pihak berwajib. Apakah ada mainan kongkolikong dalam SPRM, PDRM dan Jabatan Peguam Negara yang lambat bertindak terhadap perompak, lanun kelas jerung dan naga bunting itu? Rakyat tidak tahu tetapi mahu tahu.

Image result for hutang negara RM1 trilion

Kalau tahu ada sabotaj di kalangan pegawai2 yang korup, pengkhianat negara bertindak segera, tubuh pasukan khas untuk menyiasat, dan mengambil tindakan sewajarnya. Koruptor perlu diheret ke mahkamah, dijatuhi hukuman penjara berpuluh tahun, harta haram mereka yang dimiliki keluarga dirampas oleh negara. Kalau kerajaan bertindak tegas besar kemungkinan lebih RM500 bilion boleh diperolehi dari rampasan harta dan wang haram para dajjal-dajjal ini.

Adalah tidak wajar berjuta rakyat Malaysia terpaksa menanggung hutang akibat dajjal-dajjal yg super korup ini. Para dajjal ini dan keluarga mereka perlu menerima akibatnya. Tun Mahathir pernah berkata sebahagian besar pegawai tinggi kerajaan super korup, tidak amanah, dan mereka inilah yang sabotaj kerajaan sekarang. Bertindak segera. Siasat bagaimana mereka memiliki harta dan wang ringgit berjuta-juta melampaui dari pendapatan bulanan mereka. Percayalah rakyat akan terus menyokong pimpinan Tun Mahathir kalau beliau bertindak tegas, tanpa ampun dan maaf, terhadap para dajjal yang menjadi pengkhianat negara tercinta ini. - Yahaya Ismail


Alhamdulillah Sdr Anwar Ibrahim bakal kembali ke Parlimen hari Isnin ini.

Saya menonton ucapan sulong Sdr Anwar dari bawah pentas, bersama-sama rakyat biasa. Ujar Sdr Anwar - “ya, keluarga saya memang pernah susah. Tetapi susah saya tidak sampai anak-anak saya tidak dapat masuk universiti.”

“Anak-anak keluarga biasa, yang nelayan Melayu, yang peniaga Cina, yang pekerja estet India - mereka susahnya sehingga anak tidak mampu ke universiti.”

Saya selalu ditanya kenapa saya rapat dan setia dengan Anwar Ibrahim.

Sebab saya anak orang susah, dan sepanjang saya kenal Anwar sejak 1994 - beliau betul-betul sayangkan orang susah. Beliau tidak pentingkan tauke atau kroni, tumpuan beliau yang miskin dan susah.

Usia mudanya dihabiskan mengusahakan kelas dewasa untuk anak-anak miskin yang gagal peperiksaan, supaya boleh menduduki kembali peperiksaan melalui Yayasan Anda.

Saya akan terus berada rapat dengan Sdr Anwar, supaya boleh membantu beliau membawa agenda membantu orang-orang biasa dan keluarga yang susah.

Tahniah Sdr Anwar, pikullah amanah ini dengan sebaiknya. - Rafizi Ramli

Anwar lagi selangkah jadi PM

Dear Datuk Seri, tears rolled down my cheeks as I started writing this. How could a man of your stature and wealth be reduced to going around with a begging bowl for expenses? I am in no position to help. Although you gave me several contracts, I am no longer having a bank account with a hefty balance.

This letter comes from a mountain retreat – a monastery – where I am not exactly atoning for my past debaucheries and turpitudes. I am in hiding on the pretext of meditating. I am supposed to be cut off from modern-day trappings like mobile phones and access to the Internet, but there’s nothing money cannot buy.

Remember? You told us all that cash is king!

You will recall the sadhu (sage) whom I had brought to bless you and Datin Seri at your home on several occasions? He was the long-haired and bearded man who threw sea-shells and foresaw the future for both of you. He should not be mistaken for the bald-bearded and bare-bodied priest who carried out the prayers and made the offerings on your behalf.

Unlike many fair-weathered friends, they have not abandoned nor forgotten me. I had previously given them excellent introductions and good “business” from your family and other VIPs. In a form of retribution, they have provided me with a safe haven.

Hence, I am for the moment safe in this sanctuary – away from the debt collectors; the numerous deals which went sour; scores of people I short-changed; the contractors I refused to pay; and hundreds of unpaid workers.

For a while, the lenders paid for six bodyguards to make sure that I remain alive and kicking. They believed that I will eventually repay the loans with interest. When they realised they can’t expect anything from me, they terminated their services and left me to the dogs.

Our mutual friend – Peter – in Jakarta wasn’t helpful either. I called him for help and money. He didn’t want to risk landing his private jet in Malaysia. The pilots did not want a repeat of the May 12 events on the tarmac of the Subang airport. He said the mutual moneychanger we all had used had been arrested and is singing like a canary giving explicit details of our dealings, especially Datin Seri’s.


Instead, I was compelled to take a commercial flight – heavily disguised and seated in cattle class. I was worried that the peasants in the aircraft would recognise me because of my height. However, I came away unscathed and unrecognised.

Before I left, I was touched reading about the gesture by two ladies who gave their gold bracelets towards your legal fund.

Last night, I was saddened to read about another fund-raising effort. I was wondering why you do not want to seek from the Legal Aid Bureau. After all, it was set up to help those who can’t afford legal fees.

Lawyers don’t come cheap and I should know better. I have not paid two lawyers fees in the region of RM1 million who helped stave off bankruptcy proceedings. Some will demand money upfront before even sitting and talking to you.

I presume they will be knocking on my doors but if I was around, I would unchain my ferocious bulldogs. Datuk Seri, many lawyers got so many briefs to prepare (lop-sided) contract documents. Shouldn’t they step forward and do pro bono work for you.

Datuk Seri, where are the friends who accepted handouts from you? Like a fairy, you had given money like candies to them. What about that CGPA 3.8 fellow from Johor? He admitted to receiving a couple of million and how he pretends not to know your plight. I know that you gave about RM10 million to a hot-shot lawyer to buy a house for his friend. Recall that loan.

But on the other hand, many cronies may not want to flaunt their wealth. With all eyes on money laundering and other illegal activities, they don’t want to be prosecuted for their unexplainable wealth.

Datuk Seri, I am extremely sorry that I am unable to assist in any way at this juncture. I also do not have the “get me out of jail” card. I am obligated to you for the contracts; Datin Seri for the calls to banks to sort out my RM500 loan, and the assistance rendered to “get me out of trouble” on many occasions.

It takes a man with a big heart to order enforcement agencies to tutup satu mata (close one eye) on many of my transgressions. For all these, I am indebted to you.

But then, I just watched a tear-jerker on satellite television and wondering if all these are scenes from a Bollywood movie. In movies, the bad guys eventually are killed or end up in jail.

Judging from our past actions, our sadhu said that we will be not viewed as good guys. He said: “Be remorseful and repent, you will have a lot of time to that in internment.” I still do not know what he meant. Will I be an intern somewhere? Which company or in Bamboo River resort?

PS: The sadhu also told me that he had warned Datin Seri to stay away from diamonds – stolen, donated or purchased.

There’s danger in those stones as they do not match her appearance and demeanour. She never listened, did she? 

All the best, Sir.
Yours, faithfully,
Short Ken
