Najib tak mampu lawan Mahathir dan Daim tanpa Anwar...


Kadir Jasin: Najib dan Anwar patut berpakat menentang Dr Mahathir dan Daim...

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak boleh melawan pengkritiknya jika beliau berpakat dengan Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, kata wartawan veteran, Datuk A Kadir Jasin.

Menurut bekas ketua pengarang kumpulan New Straits Times Press Bhd itu, sekiranya kedua-dua pemimpin tersebut berpakat, kesudahannya pasti menguntungkan Barisan Nasional (BN) pimpinan Najib dan Pakatan Rakyat (PR) pimpinan Anwar.

"Kritikan bekas perdana menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad dan bekas menteri kewangan, Tun Daim Zainuddin terhadap Najib boleh diketepikan sekiranya Najib berpakat dengan Anwar.

 "Najib dan kumpulannya boleh bergantung kepada Anwar untuk berlawan dengan Dr Mahathir dan Daim," kata Kadir dalam tulisan di blognya The Scribe hari ini.

Pakatan Najib dengan Anwar mampu menguatkan lagi kedudukannya, serta menghapuskan PR dan pengkritiknya yang paling lantang.

"Anwar boleh menikmati keistimewaan dan juga dilindungi, sekiranya beliau menjadi ahli kerajaan. Semua orang akan bahagia" katanya.

Sebelum ini, Daim pernah mengkritik Najib sebagai seorang pemimpin yang tidak tegas dan rapuh dalam menguatkuasakan undang-undang negara.

Beliau turut mengatakan bahawa ahli Kabinet yang dilantik datang daripada mereka yang cetek pengetahuan dan tidak mempunyai semangat patriotisme.

Daim juga turut mengkritik Anwar dan menggelar pemimpin pembangkang tersebut sebagai gila publisiti dan sukakan perhatian, selain tidak mampu menyelesaikan masalah.

Menurut Kadir, selain menentang Daim, Anwar juga boleh menggantikan Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, hasil pakatan dengan Najib.

"Anwar mempunyai kebolehan menjauhkan Selangor daripada PR sekiranya beliau berasa hampir kalah. Sekiranya beliau berpakat dengan Najib, beliau boleh mengeluarkan Khalid," katanya.

Spekulasi timbul bahawa Anwar akan menggantikan Khalid sekiranya beliau menang Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Kajang pada 23 Mac nanti.

PRK Kajang diadakan selepas peletakan jawatan Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) kawasan tersebut, Lee Chin Cheh untuk memberi laluan kepada Anwar bertanding disana.

Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) menetapkan tarikh 23 Mac untuk hari PRK dan 11 Mac sebagai hari penamaan calon.- tmi

Grand plan for Anwar to join Najib's cabinet...

Since the Kajang state seat was vacated to pave the way for Anwar Ibrahim to contest, there have been a slew of conspiracy theories. But this is surely the grandest of them all.

In his latest blog posting, veteran journalist A Kadir Jasin, who has strong connections in Umno, puts forward the possibility of the upcoming by-election being a red herring.

He pens about the possibility of Anwar becoming a member of the cabinet with a powerful portfolio.

"What if all the hogwash about Anwar's candidacy and his taking over the Selangor menteri besar post are in fact a red herring intended to hide the backroom manoeuvring involving his camp and the prime minister’s operators?

"What if a very influential aide to the PKR's general leader had already urged an equally influential member of the PM's inner chamber to work out a deal whereby the 'ketua umum' (Anwar) will join the cabinet and be given a portfolio that makes him very powerful?

"So powerful that it sends the shiver (in this dry burning weather) down the spine of his enemies and the PM's critics," he added.

With the problem in the Selangor government continuing to fester, Kadir said the opposition leader knows the risk of his own people jumping ship.

"It's a mistake to underestimate Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim's resources and resourcefulness. He was a businessperson and a manager. He knows mergers and acquisitions better than Anwar and (PKR deputy president) Mohd Azmin Ali. He could apply his M&A skills to politics.

"He has the ability to swing Selangor away from Pakatan Rakyat if he feels that he is on the losing end. So entering into a deal with the PM is a good way for Anwar to checkmate Khalid if he harbours such an idea," he added.

For Najib Abdul Razak  and members of his inner circle, Kadir said, they could count on Anwar to battle former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad and ex-finance minister Daim Zainuddin.

"In one brilliant stroke, the PM strengthens his position, destroys Pakatan and rids himself of his critics. Anwar gets to enjoy the privileges and protection as a member of the government. And they can live happily ever after," added the former New Straits Times editor-in-chief.

He has never attacked Najib

Adding a little weight to the conspiracy theory, Kadir also pointed out that Anwar has never attacked Najib directly and vice-versa.

"Yes, Anwar viciously attacked the government, BN and Umno. Yes he attacked Mahathir and Daim. Mahathir and Daim in turn attacked him and criticised the PM.

"Think also of the animosity between Anwar and Tunku Abdul Rahman and Abdul Razak Hussein. How Anwar led a series of demonstrations against them and was incarcerated under the ISA during Abdul Razak’s and Hussein Onn's administrations.

"Remember he was freed from detention when Mahathir became PM in 1981 and in early 1982, Mahathir proudly paraded him before the press as the newest member of Umno...  And for the next 16 years, promoted him as the crown prince of Umno and successor.

"Remember also that many Umno rebels left the party but later came back to the fold and some went on to be appointed to the cabinet despite having burnt bridges. So why not Anwar?" he asked.

Kadir also questioned if DAP had got wind of this plan, prompting party supremo Lim Kit Siang to ask in his blog - "Who drafted this national reconciliation plan and who had been consulted? This is still a great mystery up to now."

In view of this, the veteran newsman said that he would be the last person to dismiss the reconciliation talk and of seeing Anwar being "mainstream and politically correct" once again.

"Politics, according to German Prussian politician, Otto von Bismarck (1815 - 1898), is the art of the possible," he added.- malaysiakini

Siasat semula Musa Aman...


Pengarah Strategi PKR, Rafizi Ramli menyeru supaya Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) membuka kembali siasatan terhadap Ketua Menteri Sabah, Datuk Seri Musa Aman dalam kes wang RM40 juta yang dikaitkan dengan kutipan dari syarikat balak dengan bukti-bukti pemindahan wang melibatkan Michael Chia.

Pemimpin muda itu berkata, hukuman bersalah ke atas Michael itu menghidupkan kembali banyak pertanyaan mengenai siapa di belakangnya.

Mahkamah Sesyen Sandakan di Sabah semalam mengenakan hukuman penjara setahun dan satu sebatan ke atas Michael  yang terbabit dalam kes cubaan menipu wang RM2.5 juta 10 tahun lalu.

Hakim Mahkamah Sesyen Sandakan Elsie Primus ketika menyampaikan hukuman itu pada Rabu lalu berkata Michael telah didapati bersalah atas cubaan menipu dan gagal menimbulkan keraguan yang munasabah dalam kesnya.

Katanya, Michael tidak mempunyai apa-apa pengaruh atau jawatan di dalam kerajaan, maka dia sendiri tidak ada kuasa untuk memberikan permit membalak.

“Hakikatnya dia boleh mengutip wang dari syarikat-syarikat balak memberi gambaran bahawa syarikat dan pengusaha balak tahu bahawa dia menjadi orang tengah bagi pihak-pihak tertentu yang mempunyai kuasa dan pengaruh dalam menentukan pemberian permit balak.

“Sebab itu, keputusan bersalah yang dijatuhkan kepada Michael  menguatkan spekulasi mengenai kes wang RM40 juta yang sebelum ini menjadi kontroversi melibatkan Musa.

“Fakta kes sebelum ini melalui pelbagai bukti pemindahan wang, keterangan SPRM dan maklumat dari ICAC di Hong Kong menunjukkan bahawa memang ada pemindahan wang berjumlah RM40 juta tetapi ia tidak disiasat sebagai rasuah kerana wang itu dikatakan derma politik kepada Umno Sabah,” kata Rafizi dalam kenyataan media hari ini.

Tamparan kepada Nazri

Menurut beliau, keputusan bersalah terhadap Michael juga adalah satu tamparan kepada Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz yang mempunyai hubungan dengan Michael, terutamanya apabila anak beliau menggunakan kereta mewah milik lelaki itu seperti yang didedahkan sebelum ini.

Nazri bagaimanapun, tampil di Parlimen menjelaskan bahawa tidak ada unsur rasuah di dalam kes-kes melibatkan  Musa dan Michael yang mengundang kontroversi sebelum itu.

Rafizi berkata, walaupun keputusan terhadap Michael ini adalah satu peningkatan baik yang ditunjukkan SPRM, rakyat memerhati sama ada SPRM bakal mendakwa penjawat-penjawat awam berpangkat tinggi yang terlibat sama.

Namun, menurut Rafizi, kes yang membabitkan permit membalak di Sabah itu adalah salah satu kes utama yang memberi gambaran bagaimana permit membalak telah disalah gunakan oleh ahli-ahli politik dan pegawai awam untuk membina kekayaan peribadi.

Jika tidak, selama-lamanya SPRM dilihat hanya mendakwa bilis sedangkan jerung terus terlepas, tambah beliau.- fmt

Reopen RM40mil Chia case, Rafizi tells MACC...

PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli wants the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to reopen the case on Michael Chia, who was caught at the Hong Kong International Airport with Singapore currency worth RM40 million in his luggage in 2008.

Chia was investigated with money laundering and trafficking by the Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) which reportedly found that the money was earmarked for Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman.

This follows Chia's conviction by the Sandakan Sessions Court yesterday, of cheating businessman Agus Hassan that the RM2.5 million that the latter paid to obtain logging concessions, was to be given to Umno as a political donation.

Rafizi, who is also Pandan MP, welcomed Chia's conviction saying this showed the MACC could do their job in gathering evidence, but added the case gives a picture of logging concessions being abused by politicians and also civil servants to build their wealth.

“Chia's conviction raises questions of who is behind him. Chia has no position in the government and certainly, he does not have the powers to award logging concessions.

“The fact he manages to collect money from logging companies gives a picture that these companies know that he is being a middleman for someone who has the power and influence to award the logging concessions,” said the Pandan MP.

Hence, Rafizi said, the conviction strengthens speculation on the controversial RM40 million Chia was found with.

MACC investigations had shown that RM40 million were political contributions to the state Umno and not for Musa, according to a parliamentary reply by Minister Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz (left).

 “With Chia's conviction I urge the MACC to re-open its investigations on Musa and the RM40 million collected from logging companies as evidence shows Chia's involvement in collecting it.

“His conviction is also a bad blow to Nazri Aziz who allegedly has connections with Chia when his son used the Sabah businessman's luxurious vehicle prior to this.

"This again raises questions when Nazri who was then Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, had explained truthfully in Parliament when he said there were no corruption elements involving Chia and Musa,” said Rafizi.

Catch big fish too

Rafizi said the case needs to be re-opened to ensure the MACC is not only getting the small fish but also the big ones as well.

Yesterday, it was reported that Chia was sentenced to one year's jail and a stroke of the rotan for cheating Agus in June 2004 when the judge ruled Chia's defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt to the prosecution's case.

Chia's lawyer has managed to obtain a stay of execution and is appealing the sentence and conviction to the High Court.

It was also previously reported that Chia was also arrested by the Hong Kong authorities for being implicated in the RM40 million saga.

This is the second time that Rafizi is asking the MACC to reopen its investigations into the RM40 million matter as in 2012, there were conflicting statements made by Nazri in Parliament when answering the matter. Rafizi himself went to the Hong Kong ICAC to find out more on its investigations.- malaysiakini

Pemimpin dilihat ‘hebat’ bila anak dapat projek mega dan tersenarai antara 10 terkaya...


video

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim sememangnya dilihat ‘terlalu lemah’ apabila gagal menjadikan anak-anaknya sebagai individu yang terkaya di Malaysia mahupun peringkat global.

Demikian kata Setiausaha Agung PKR, Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail(pix bawah) sebagai respons kepada kenyataan bekas Menteri Kewangan, Tun Daim Zainuddin yang menganggap Anwar sebagai seorang yang lemah dan gilakan publisiti.

Secara sinis, katanya kelemahan Anwar sepanjang 17 tahun berada di dalam kerajaan telah mewujudkan perbelanjaan yang seimbang dan tidak mengumpul hutang yang berganda-ganda sepertimana berlaku sekarang.


"Anwar memang lemah dan saya kesal apabila beliau gagal menjadikan anaknya sebagai individu terkaya di nagara ini atau peringkat global.

"Beliau lemah bila tidak memberi projek-projek mega kepada keluarganya sepertimana yang dilakukan pemimpin dalam Umno sekarang ini," ujarnya pada sidang media di ibu pejabat PKR di sini.




"Anwar juga lemah kerana semasa jadi menteri kewangan dia bayar hutang negara lebih awal daripada jadual.

"Menteri kewangan yang baik harus menimbun hutang.

"Dalam konteks itu saya setuju sepenuhnya dengan kenyataan Tun Daim," katanya lagi.


Saifuddin menegaskan, ‘kehebatan’ seseorang pemimpin itu hanya dilihat apabila ia dapat menjadikan ahli keluarga sebagai individu terkaya dengan pemberian projek mega dan dapat mengumpul hutang negara dengan lebih banyak.


Dalam wawancara yang disiarkan KiniBiz semalam, Daim yang juga merupakan tokoh korporat berjaya menyifatkan Anwar sebagai "lemah" kerana tidak mempunyai sebarang pencapaian sewaktu berada di dalam kerajaan.

Beliau juga berkata, Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak gagal menunjukkan kepimpinan di peringkat nasional. - harakahdaily,malaysiakini

Daim Zainuddin said...

…we have heard about the Kajang move, so to speak. Anwar is going to contest there. What’s your take on the whole Anwar, Khalid and Azmin issue?

Daim quote 6
Anwar has never been able to solve any problem (laughing). Again, the weak leadership. He’s not even elected in Parti KeAdilan Rakyat (PKR), yet he wields so much power and influence. He decides what to do and so far, the president and the rest are keeping quiet. They’re elected fellows (laughs).

Anwar wants to be in the limelight all the time. Whether good news, bad news, it doesn’t matter for him, as long as he’s in the news (laughing). That’s Anwar lah. And you all have given so much space to him — that’s what he loves. It doesn’t matter, even if you criticise him also it’s news. You praise him also it’s news.

But this (Kajang move) is rubbish, wasting public funds. And now Khalid said (reportedly) that he’s not going to resign (from the Mentri Besar post).

Anwar 'weak' as his children not in rich list...

In a sarcastic response, PKR secretary general Saifuddin Nasution today defended his boss Anwar Ibrahim against former finance minister Daim Zainuddin by listing the PKR de facto leader's "weaknesses".

"Yes, I agree with Daim that Anwar is 'weak' as after 17 years in government, none of his children are in the list of the top 10 richest people in Malaysia.

"He is also weak as he failed to amass wealth like Daim. It is tough for me to forgive Anwar for this weakness," he said.

Saifuddin (right) added that Anwar was also a 'weak' finance minister as he had then paid off national debts ahead of schedule and avoided debt build up and a wide deficit.

In an interview with Kinibiz published yesterday, Daim, who is also a successful corporate figure said Anwar is weak as he never achieved anything while in government.

He also said that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had similarly failed to provide national leadership.- malaysiakini



In deriding Anwar, Daim shows Umno fear of losing Putrajaya sooner than later...

So why is Tun Daim Zainuddin quaking?

Make no mistake, the former finance minister is worried. Worried enough that he keeps talking incessantly about Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Publicly, he dismisses the PKR de facto leader as a publicity hound, a man who craves the limelight and loves the next headline.

 Publicly, he runs the opposition leader down as someone who has never been able to solve any problem.

Publicly, he says that Anwar's move to contest a by-election in Kajang is a complete waste of public funds.

Apparently Daim's fixation with Anwar continues in private discussions but behind closed doors, the tone is less dismissive, less condescending.

Those in his circle say he speaks with some concern over the consequences of an Anwar victory in Kajang; chiefly the real possibility of Anwar being the chief executive of the richest state in Malaysia with several billion ringgit at his disposal and the immediate impact on the morale of Umno members in Selangor and then around the country.

Left unsaid is the fear that with a strong economic base and a platform to showcase stronger leadership qualities than the incumbent in Putrajaya, a rejuvenated and focused Anwar could lead Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to defeat Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Barisan Nasional (BN) in the next general elections - an end result could prove particularly uncomfortable for Daim, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and other Umno leaders from the glory days of privatisation and excess.

After all, Selangor is the country's richest and most-industrialised state and next to it is Kuala Lumpur, which make them rich pickings for infrastructure projects, property deals and business for cronies and others connected to Putrajaya.

It would be in the interest of the few who have benefited in the past to ensure Selangor returns to the Barisan Nasional fold.

Anwar leading the state would make that a remote possibility for the near future and turn Selangor into another political fortress like Kelantan is for PAS.

To put it simply, there is a need to protect the golden goose.

And Umno-linked tycoons will go all out to prevent Anwar from taking over as menteri besar.

So do not be surprised if Daim takes more than a cursory interest in how Umno/BN are preparing for battle against Anwar.

It would be in the interest of the old guard of the Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad era if the current Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim does not vacate his position or at least drags out the whole process.

And let's be clear, their disdain about the “Kajang move” has little to do with the use of public funds for a by-election.

Because if they were truly concerned about how taxpayers money is spent, they would not have allowed the one-sided toll concessions or sweet deals for the independent power producers or keep water resources in the hands of a few connected businessmen.

The battle for Kajang then, is really the battle over who gets to control Putrajaya in the nearest future.

An Anwar win in Kajang could lead to Umno losing the federal government sooner than later. – tmi

There are fears if Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim takes over at the helm of Selangor, Barisan Nasional's chances of losing federal power are high. – The Malaysian Insider pic, February 26, 2014.

Guan Eng: Anwar has guts, MCA doesn't...

Anwar Ibrahim has the gumption to battle Umno and BN whereas MCA does not. And this, according to Lim Guan Eng, is the reason behind the Chinese community’s backing for the opposition leader.

Known for his acerbic remarks, especially when it comes to MCA, the DAP secretary-general ripped his rival to shreds and called on the BN party to learn from P Waythamoorthy's experience.

Lim was referring to the Persatuan Hindraf Malaysia chairperson's resignation as deputy minister after blaming Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak of reneging on his promise to help the Indians.

"MCA should learn from the bitter lessons of Waythamoorthy, who resigned after eight painful and fruitless months as deputy minister because Waythamoorthy realised that he was deceived by Umno's lies and refused to be a slave to those who discriminate and divide Malaysians.

"MCA is rushing to go back into government at the same time that Waythamoorthy resigned, when it is clear that ministerial posts under Umno are meaningless as it will not make any difference in policy nor in bringing change that will improve the livelihood of the people," he said in a statement today.

Lim also called on MCA president Liow Tiong Lai to apologise to the Chinese community on behalf of the four MCA ministers responsible for supporting Operasi Lalang in 1987.

He said Liow should do so if he continues to insist that Anwar is also culpable by virtue of his cabinet position and the principle of collective responsibility.

"Liow continues to pin the blame on Anwar even though Anwar was never the home minister who signed the Internal Security Act (ISA) detention orders.

"Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad (right) recently admitted he was responsible as he signed the detention orders for Operasi Lalang.

"As a former detainee under Operasi Lalang, I can vouch that it was Mahathir and not Anwar who signed the detention order for 18 months till my release on April 19, 1989," he added.

Lim, who is also Penang chief minister, claimed that Liow was attempting to distract attention from MCA's failures as well as "hide the shame" of MCA "abandoning its principle" of not accepting government posts for performing badly in the last general election.

"It was MCA's support for Operasi Lalang and turning its back on justice and human dignity that caused MCA to lose the support and respect of Chinese voters.

"Wrongly blaming Anwar would not redeem MCA and earn back that support principally because Anwar has decided to fight the oppression, injustice and corruption of BN whilst MCA continues to be a slave to corrupt extremists and racists merely to enjoy the perks and privileges of ministerial office," he added. - malaysiakini

Zaid Ibrahim pernah lobi projek Selangor...


Kredibiliti dan Zaid Ibrahim... 

Sejak mengumumkan menjadi calon PRK Kajang, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim melontarkan pelbagai tuduhan terhadap Keadilan dan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Ini termasuklah tuduhan yang mempersoalkan ketelusan, integriti dan budaya politik yang dibawa Keadilan.

Kebelakangan ini, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim membuat cabaran untuk berdebat pula dengan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, juga atas alasan ketelusan dan integriti.

Saya pada mulanya tidak mahu memberi maklum balas tetapi selepas ditanya berkali-kali terutamanya oleh FreeMalaysiaToday yang ghairah membawa berita ini, saya akhirnya membuat keputusan melontarkan kembali beberapa perkara berhubung kredibiliti yang perlu juga dijawab oleh Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.

Jika beliau lantang berkempen atas platform ketelusan dan integriti serta memberi gambaran beliau ingin menyelamatkan kerajaan Selangor daripada ahli politik yang membawa budaya rasuah dan campur tangan, maka beliau juga perlu mempunyai rekod yang baik dalam perkara itu.

Malangnya, keadaannya tidak sebegitu.


video

Dalam tempoh pendek lebih setahun beliau menjadi anggota Keadilan beliau jugalah yang tidak segan silu cuba menggunakan kedudukan di dalam parti untuk mempengaruhi keputusan kerajaan negeri berhubung beberapa projek yang diusahakan oleh rakan atau pihak yang bersabit dengan beliau.

Sebagai Ketua Eksekutif Pejabat Penasihat Ekonomi Selangor, saya pernah didatangi sendiri oleh Datuk Zaid Ibrahim yang meminta supaya kami campur tangan dalam dua projek yang diusahakan rakan atau pihak yang bersabit dengan beliau.

Projek pertama melibatkan tanah seluas 26 ekar di Batu/Selayang. Saya dimaklumkan bahawa rakan/rakan kongsi beliau telah membuat cadangan pembangunan bersama dengan Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Berhad (KHSB).

Pada 25 Jun 2010, dalam satu e-mel yang saya sertakan bersama, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim secara terang-terangan memohon pejabat saya campur tangan dengan melobi Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, untuk meluluskan cadangan yang dibuat oleh rakan atau pihak yang bersabit dengan beliau itu.

Datuk Zaid Ibrahim juga ada menyebut secara lisan kepada saya untuk membantu mendapatkan tanah PT70 dan PT71 iaitu dua lot tanah premium di Petaling Jaya juga bagi tujuan untuk dibangunkan oleh rakan atau pihak yang bersabit dengan beliau.

Saya memaklumkan perkara ini kepada Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan kami bersetuju bahawa adalah tidak menepati prosedur untuk pejabat kami membenarkan pimpinan parti melobi atau mempengaruhi keputusan kerajaan negeri, terutamanya yang bersabit dengan harta awam.

Oleh itu, pada 13 Julai 2010, saya membalas e-mel Datuk Zaid Ibrahim untuk memaklumkan kepada beliau prosedur yang akan digunapakai oleh pejabat kami dan kerajaan negeri dalam menangani permohonan pembangunan bersama harta kerajaan Selangor.


Salinan e-mel yang dihantar dan diterima oleh Zaid kepada Rafizi.

Salinan e-mel yang dihantar dan diterima oleh Zaid kepada Rafizi. 

Budaya melobi dan menggunakan kedudukan politik di dalam parti untuk mempengaruhi keputusan kerajaan adalah budaya Umno/Barisan Nasional (BN) yang tidak telus. Budaya ini bertentangan sepenuhnya dengan hasrat Pakatan Rakyat (PR) untuk mengehadkan pengaruh politik di dalam perkara-perkara bersabit dasar dan maklumbalas pelaksanaan dasar.

Keputusan melibatkan harta dan tender diserahkan kepada jawatankuasa yang dipertanggungjawabkan mengikut prosedur yang termaktub.

Jelas bahawa kelantangan Datuk Seri Zaid Ibrahim mengenai ketelusan, integriti dan budaya politik bebas rasuah hanyalah lantang dengan suara, tetapi tidak dicerminkan oleh tindak tanduk beliau.

Ini soal kredibiliti sebenar. Sebelum beliau terus lantang mencabar orang lain, wajarlah Datuk Zaid menjelaskan kenapa beliau kekal dengan budaya Umno/BN setelah meninggalkan Umno/BN? - Rafizi Ramli,tmi

Rafizi questions Zaid's integrity, exposes emails...

PKR director of strategy Rafizi Ramli has exposed email correspondence with former PKR member Zaid Ibrahim, purportedly showing Zaid had lobbied for state land.

The emails sent in 2010, when Rafizi was Selangor economic office chief executive and Zaid (right) a party member, appear to show that this was on behalf of a "client" for land in Batu and Petaling Jaya.

"It is not what you shout, but what you practise,” Rafizi told a press conference at PKR headquarters today.

"Before you (Zaid can) challenge everyone and preach on integrity and transparency, explain these two (matters).”

When contacted, Zaid, who plans to contest the Kajang by-election as an Independent against PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim on March 23, said he will respond at a press conference tomorrow.

According to copies of the emails distributed to media, Zaid had emailed Rafizi on a joint venture proposal between a company and state corporation Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Bhd (KHSB).

A 26-acre parcel of land in Batu was proposed for a mixed development project involving medium-cost housing and shoplots.

It is unclear what the plans were for the Petaling Jaya land but the “client” had, according to an email, valued the land at RM160 million.

Zaid allegedly said that his client, whose identity is being withheld by Malaysiakini for now, was in a “dispute” with the state and “just need(s) Tan Sri to okay (the) proposal”.

It is believed that the 'Tan Sri' refers to Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Proposal was requested

In his reply, Rafizi said the state already has plans for the Batu land while the Petaling Jaya land belongs to several state entities, including the Selangor Islamic Affairs Council (Mais).

“Regarding (the Petaling Jaya land), the state's approach will be to invite a request for proposal (RFP) and evaluate the proposals and financial and technical criteria, so that the most profitable and iconic scheme will enter a joint venture with KHSB to develop the land.”

Rafizi also said that several state entities are embroiled in a tussle with Mais over the Petaling Jaya land.

“Our focus now is to get (Khalid) to put his feet down and get Mais to agree to the transfer of land, so that a development scheme can be done quickly.

“I suppose the interested parties can submit RFP from there on for evaluation by the state. I hope this is sufficient for the time being, will keep you in the loop,” Rafizi replied to Zaid.

Speaking to reporters at the PKR headquarters, Rafizi said the issue did not proceed from there and that the state was never in the loop as a proposal was not submitted.

He said the culture of using political clout to lobby state entities is one that Zaid had carried with him from his past life as an Umno and BN leader and this contravenes Pakatan Rakyat practices.

Rafizi also said that he chose to expose the issue after Zaid started attacking PKR on issues of integrity.

Zaid was former de facto law minister in the Abdullah Ahmad Badawi administration, but resigned on principle when a journalist and DAP MP Teresa Kok were arrested under the Internal Security Act.

Besides Zaid, another of Anwar's former allies, S Nallakarupan, has said he too will contest in the March 23 Kajang state by-election.

Selangor ambil alih pengurusan industri air...

Khalid Ibrahim dan Najib tandatangani MoU penstrukturan air Selangor...

Pertelingkahan berhubung isu air di Selangor dijangka dapat diselesaikan dalam masa terdekat apabila Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim menandatangani Perjanjian Persefahaman (MoU) dengan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak hari ini.

Khalid menandatangani MoU berkenaan bagi membolehkan kerajaan negeri mengambil alih empat syarikat konsesi air di negeri berkenaan dengan suntikan dana RM2 bilion oleh kerajaan pusat bagi pengambil alihan saham-saham syarikat konsesi.

 Antara isi kandungan perjanjian tersebut termasuklah kerajaan negeri yang dipimpin Pakatan Rakyat (PR) akan membenarkan Putrajaya meneruskan Loji Rawatan Air Langat 2.

Selain itu, kerajaan negeri juga akan memberikan pampasan bernilai RM9.65 bilion kepada empat syarikat konsesi air di Selangor.

Ekoran pengambilalihan tersebut, satu konsortium air untuk menguruskan industri air di Selangor akan dibentuk di bawah seliaan Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Berhad (KDEB).

Kerajaan negeri Selangor menjangkakan pengambil alihan syarikat konsesi tersebut akan selesai dalam tempoh tiga bulan.

Maklumat yang diperoleh dari Pejabat Menteri Besar Selangor itu turut menyatakan, melalui pengambil alihan ini, ia diharap mampu menyelesaikan masalah air kerana kerajaan negeri memiliki kemampuan kewangan dan tenaga kerja berpengalaman di samping pengurusan air yang lebih cekap dan mantap.

Kerajaan negeri sebelum ini mengambil keputusan membenarkan KDEB membuat tawaran bernilai RM9.65 bilion bagi memulakan proses pengambilalihan syarikat-syarikat konsesi air.

Bagaimanapun, menurut kenyataan kepada Bursa Malaysia, mereka menolak tawaran itu.

Surat tawaran kepada Syabas, Puncak Niaga, Konsortium Abass Sdn Bhd dan Syarikat Pengeluar Air Selangor Holding (Splash) juga sudah dikeluarkan KDEB.



Khalid sebelum ini dilaporkan berkata, kerajaan pusat yang ditadbir Barisan Nasional (BN) melalui Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air (KeTTHA) juga bersetuju menggunakan Akta Industri Perkhidmatan Air (WSIA) 2006 bagi mengambil alih konsortium air di negeri berkenaan.

"Kementerian melalui surat bertarikh 9 September 2013 menyatakan hasrat mengambilalih hal ehwal dan pengurusan air mengguna pakai Seksyen 114 WSIA sekiranya tiada penyelesaian berhubung rancangan pengambil alihan konsesi air oleh kerajaan negeri dengan syarikat konsesi pada 31 Disember 2013," katanya.

Kerajaan Negeri Selangor juga meletakkan syarat agar Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Air Negara (Span) melantik dua pentadbir syarikat konsesi berkenaan iaitu Presiden Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Suhaimi Kamaralzaman dan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Perbadanan Menteri Besar (MBI) Faekah Husin.

Rancangan pengambilalihan berkenaan dilakukan ekoran rungutan dan kekhuatiran masyarakat terhadap masalah bekalan air yang melanda Selangor.

Pertikaian berhubung isu air di Selangor mula mendapat perhatian apabila pembinaan Loji Langat 2 dihentikan kerajaan PR selepas Pilihan Raya Umum 2008 apabila pakatan pembangkang berkenaan menewaskan BN di Selangor.

Ekoran kekerapan berlakunya gangguan bekalan air, kedua-dua pihak, kerajaan negeri dan Syabas sering bertelagah menyalahkan satu sama lain.

BN sering kali menggesa kerajaan PR Selangor untuk membenarkan pembinaan Loji Langat 2 bagi mengatasi masalah kekurangan takungan air bersih di negeri tersebut, dan mereka turut menjadikannya sebagai isu bagi kempen Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU13).

Khalid turut dilaporkan sebelum ini berkata masalah air di negeri Selangor hanya boleh diselesaikan jika PR berjaya menawan Putrajaya.- tmi

Finally, Selangor gets control of water industry...

The Selangor and the federal governments have reached agreement on the state’s takeover of all four water companies, which will receive compensation of RM9.65 billion.

Putrajaya will also inject RM2 billion into the deal to help the Selangor government to acquire the shares of the companies.

In return, Selangor will allow the federal government to proceed with construction of the Langat 2 water treatment plant.

This had been stalled by absence of local council approval, which the state had used to leverage its negotiations to take over the water companies, toward cost-efficient management.

This brings to a close a near five-year tussle between the two governments for control of Selangor’s water supply services.

Star Online reported that the memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed by Energy, Water and Green Technology Minister Maximus Ongkili (left) and Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim at the Perdana Putra building in Putrajaya today.

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin witnessed the signing, it said.

Malaysiakini was barred from covering the event and the press conference held afterwards by Ongkili, with Khalid alongside him.

However, information was obtained from an official from Khalid's (right) office, who attended the press conference.

The state government expects to complete the takeover process within three months, including share acquisition and employees.

It is understood that the companies will be managed by the state-owned Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Bhd.

The Selangor government had run into a brick wall in dealing with the water concessionaire -  Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Bhd - appointed during the BN-led administration prior to 2008.

The Pakatan Rakyat-led administration was therefore left frustrated in its attempts to bring about cost-efficient management of water services, reduction of non-revenue water and replacement of old pipes.- malaysiakini

TV3suku kalah saman dan bekas bos NST balun Ridhuan Tee kaw2...

Tiga hakim Mahkamah Rayuan yang diketuai Datuk Mohamad Arif Yusof, membenarkan rayuan Nizar, berkata plaintif berjaya membuktikan kes kebarangkalian yang seimbang.

"Perintah Mahkamah Tinggi adalah dengan ini mengenepikan dan kes ini akan dirujuk ke Mahkamah Tinggi bagi penaksiran ganti rugi,"katanya.

 Arif berkata Mahkamah Tinggi yang menolak saman Nizar tidak boleh dikekalkan dan TV3 bertanggungjawab.

Beliau berkata pembelaan justifikasi gagal dan TV3 tidak berjaya membuktikan kebenaran atau sebahagian kebenaran dalam laporan mereka.

"Malah, ada niat jahat oleh defendan dalam laporan mereka," katanya.

Mahkamah juga memerintahkan bayaran RM30,000 sebagai kos.

Pada 12 April, Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi, Datin Yeoh Wee Siam menolak dakwaan Nizar bahawa TV3 memfitnah beliau.

Dalam penghakiman bertulis beliau, hakim memutuskan TV3 memperlihatkan justifikasi pembelaan terhadap semua fakta dan hujah yang dibangkitkan kedua-dua belah pihak.

"Saya berpendapat defendan berjaya dalam pembelaan mereka berdasarkan justifikasi. Pembelaan justifikasi adalah pembelaan yang lengkap. Oleh itu, berdasarkan faktor ini, tuntutan plaintif patut dibuang," katanya dalam kenyataan penghakiman bertulis sebanyak 30 muka surat.



Bagaimanapun, Yeoh turut meneliti hak keistimewaan pembelaan dan pembelaan Reynolds yang digunakan oleh stesen penyiaran itu.

Menggunakan ujian kemunasabahan yang digariskan dalam kes di United Kingdom, Reynolds melawan Times Akhbar Ltd, Yeoh berkata, TV3 tidak mengamalkan amalan kewartawanan yang dipertanggungjawabkan kerana ia tidak mengesahkan tweet berkenaan dengan Nizar atau meminta sebarang komen daripadanya.

Beliau sebelum itu berkata, adalah jelas bahawa laporan berita TV3 itu mempunyai kepentingan awam dan bertanggungjawab untuk menyiarkannya.

Pada Julai 2012, Nizar memfailkan saman fitnah RM50 juta terhadap Sistem Televisyen Malaysia Berhad (TV3) dan penerbit TV3 Rohani Ngah di atas berita laporan 30 Mei 2012 yang didakwa boleh ditafsirkan dalam beberapa maksud, termasuk beliau melakukan hasutan, pengkhianat kepada Sultan Johor dan mengbangkitkan kebencian orang ramai kepada pemerintah Johor.

Nizar juga memfailkan saman fitnah RM50 juta terhadap penerbit Utusan Melayu (M) Berhad ke atas laporan mengenai tweet, di mana saksi daripada kedua-dua pihak telah memberi keterangan minggu ini, penghujahan lisan akan didengar di mahkamah pada 7 Jun. – tmi

Ex-Perak MB Nizar wins suit against TV3suku...

The Court of Appeal today allowed an appeal brought by former Perak menteri besar Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin against TV3 for defamation over the WWW 1 car licence plate issue.

A three-member panel headed by Justice Mohd Arif Mohd Yusof said Nizar had successfully shown malice on the part of the defendants.

"We unanimously set aside the judgment by the High Court in Kuala Lumpur. We find the defendants to be liable for defamation," Justice Mohd Arif said.

The decision by the appellate court was unanimous.

The appellate court also ruled the defendants failed to prove justification in their news report.

The other judges were Justice David Wong Dak Wah and Justice Abang Iskandar Abang Hashim.

Justice Mohd Arif then ordered for the damages to be assessed by the High Court.

The court however agreed that TV3 is to pay RM30,000 in legal costs.

There are two different judgments which were written by the judges, and Justice Mohd Arif indicated that they will be out tomorrow.

The former Perak menteri besar was represented by Mohd Fitri Asmuni while TV3 was represented by lawyer Liew Teck Huat.

Mahkamah Rayuan memutuskan bahawa TV3 bertanggungjawab memfitnah bekas Menteri Besar Perak Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin membabitkan tweet beliau berkaitan nombor pendaftaran kenderaan WWW1 yang berjaya dibida Sultan Johor.

Panel tiga hakim diketuai Datuk Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof sebulat suara membenarkan rayuan Mohammad Nizar bagi mengetepikan keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi yang menolak saman fitnah RM50 juta beliau terhadap TV3.

Mohamad Ariff juga memerintahkan agar kes itu dikembalikan ke Mahkamah Tinggi untuk taksiran kerugian.

Dalam penghakimannya, Mohamad Ariff berkata TV3 gagal membuktikan pembelaan justifikasi.

Beliau berkata terdapat niat jahat dalam laporan stesen televisyen itu dan menambah bahawa TV3 juga gagal membuktikan laporannya benar atau separa benar.

"Mahkamah ini berpendapat keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi itu tidak boleh dipertahan dan dengan ini diketepikan," kata Mohamad Ariff yang bersidang bersama-sama Datuk David Wong Dak Wah dan Datuk Abang Iskandar Abang Hashim.

Beliau turut memerintahkan TV3 membayar RM30,000 sebagai kos perundangan kepada Mohammad Nizar bagi prosiding di Mahkamah Rayuan.

Mohammad Nizar mengemukakan rayuan terhadap keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi pada 12 April 2013  yang menolak saman fitnahnya terhadap TV3 dan penerbit Buletin Utama, Rohani Ngah, berhubung komen beliau berkaitan nombor pendaftaran yang berjaya dibida pada jumlah RM520,000 oleh Sultan Johor pada Mei 2012.

Penyataan tuntutan Mohammad Nizar menyebut beliau mengeluarkan kenyataan itu menerusi akaun Twitternya pada 28 Mei 2012 berkaitan nombor plet kenderaan berkenaan.

Beliau mendakwa pada 30 Mei 2012, TV3 menyiarkan berita berkaitan kenyataan dalam Twitter itu dalam slot Buletin Utama pukul 8 malam.

Peguam Liew Teck Huat, yang mewakili TV3, memaklumkan pemberita bahawa beliau akan meneliti alasan penghakiman sebelum memutuskan sama ada akan membawa kes itu ke Mahkamah Persekutuan.

TV3 may appeal

Nizar last year failed in his defamation suit against Sistem Televisyen (M) Bhd (TV3) and one other party.

This was after KL High Court judge Justice Yeoh Wee Siam said Nizar’s tweet messages had clearly insinuated that the sultan of Johor had used public funds to secure the WWW1 vehicle registration number in the bid.

Yeoh said the court was unable to agree with Mohammad Nizar’s suggestion that his tweets must be construed literally and entirely divorced from any inferences, implications, and the normal understanding of a reasonable man.

“Based on the above considerations, the court dismisses the plaintiff’s action against the defendants. Costs are to be borne by the respective parties,” she ruled last year.

However, before another High Court judge, Nizar was successful in another suit on the same issue that he filed against Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia.

The KL High Court awarded RM250,000 in damages to Nizar and the appellate court upheld the decision last December.

It was reported that Nizar filed two separate suits against TV3 in 2012, after his tweet was allegedly twisted by the mainstream media.

Fitri told reporters that Utusan Malaysia has filed for leave to appeal.

Liew also told reporters on the sidelines that he would look at the full judgment tomorrow and the television station is also likely to appeal.- malaysiakini

Photo: ISU DSAI BERCERAMAH DI GEREJA DAN KUIL ... BEKAS BOS NST BELASAH LUMAT LUNYAI RIDHUAN TEE ABDULLAH.

CERITA masuk gereja dan babi dekat dengan hati saya. Jadi apabila penceramah Ridhuan Tee Abdullah dilaporkan mengecam perbuatan seorang bakal calon Melayu bagi Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Dewan Undangan Negeri Kajang berucap di gereja, saya ingin tumpang sekali.

Saya katakan “bakal calon” kerana penamaan calon belum diadakan. Antara sekarang dan saat itu, apa pun boleh berlaku.

Menulis dalam akhbar Sinar Harian, Ridhuan mengkritik langkah bakal calon tersebut memasuki gereja Holy Family, Kajang dan berucap. Tee menyifatkan tindakan itu  sebagai “liberal dan keterlaluan”. Bakal calon yang dimaksudkan itu ialah Anwar Ibrahim.

Katanya: "Luar biasa! Dahulu orang Melayu usahkan nak masuk gereja atau kuil, lalu sahaja di luar pun kalau boleh, cuba elakkan. Sama seperti jika mereka ke pasar, kalau boleh elak melalui atau memandang daging atau penjual khinzir. Lebih dahsyat lagi, ketika di pasar, ada yang takut ‘lalat khinzir’ terbang kawasan ‘halal’ Islam. Begitulah berhati-hatinya orang Melayu terhadap cara hidup mereka.”

Saya katakan cerita masuk gereja dan babi dekat dengan hati saya kerana kedua-duanya adalah sebahagian daripada pendewasaan saya.

1. Ketika saya kanak-kanak,  di kampung saya babi peliharaan adalah perkara biasa. Jiran Cina yang berupa penduduk minoriti pelihara babi dan kadang kala babi mereka terlepas keluar kandang dan masuk kampung kami.

2. Babi masuk kampung perkara biasa waktu itu. Kita hambat keluar atau kita biarkan asal tidak merosakkan tanaman atau datang terlalu hampir dengan rumah. Malah nenek saya melakukan kegiatan tukar barang kerana babi. Penternak babi tuai keladi liar yang tumbuh dalam kampungnya untuk makanan haiwan itu. Sebagai ganti mereka memberikannya gula, kopi dan susu.

3. Kalau menunggang basikal dari Tanah Merah (Pendang) ke Kubur Panjang melalui Tobiar, kita akan  melintasi sebuah perkampungan orang Siam. Mereka pun pelihara babi dan babi mereka jinak. Bila kita lalu, babi akan ikut kita, apatah lagi kalau kita membawa buah-buahan atau sayur-sayuran.

4. Tapi orang Melayu jijik dengan daging babi dan sangat ambil berat makanan halal. Tapi ramai tidak peduli sangat kalau makanan halal diperoleh secara haram atau dibeli dengan pendapatan haram macam rasuah. Dua cerita daging babi dan makanan halal adalah:

(a) Seorang buta (tentunya tidak tahu rupa bentuk babi) terambil bungkusan mengandungi daging babi kepunyaan kawan Cinanya. Si isteri celik, tapi tidak pernah tengok dagang babi. Mereka masak dan makan. Tidak jadi apa-apa. Si kawan Cina berasa sangat bersalah dan pergi beritahu yang itu daging babi. Laki bini muntah sampai lembik. Begitulah jijiknya orang Melayu dengan babi.

(b) Seorang Melayu (tentunya Islam) “bergumbira” tiga hari dua malam di Haadyai dengan “temannya” berkurung dalam bilik hotel. Hari ketiga lapar dan turun cari makan. Pertanyaan pertamanya: “Halal ke ayam ni?” Maksudnya disembelih ikut cara Islam.

5. Mengenai masuk gereja pula, kalau itulah interpretasi Tee, saya lagi teruk daripada bakal calon yang Tee kritik itu kerana:

(a) Saya masuk gereja ketika bersekolah selama lapan tahun di Sekolah Rendah dan Menengah Saint Michael di Alor Setar. Bukan masuk gereja untuk sembahyang Kristian, tetapi berlindung daripada bahang panas musim kemarau. Saya juga masuk gereja untuk ziarah kenalan Kristian yang mati.

 (b) Ketika belajar kewartawanan di New Zealand, saya tinggal seminggu di rumah seorang paderi Gereja Anglican. Di rumah beliaulah saya belajar mengenai “grace” atau doa sebelum makan berbunyi: Bless, O Father, Thy gifts to our use and us to Thy service; for Christ’s sake. Amen.

Jadi apalah salahnya bakal calon masuk berucap dalam gereja atau melawat kuil. Perdana Menteri kita, Mohd Najib Abdul Razak pun buat masa perayaan agama-agama bukan Islam siap dengan pakaian sekali. Inilah 1Malaysia. Wallahuaklam.

A 'real Malay',Kadir Jasin thrashes Ridhuan Tee's taboos on churches and pigs...

Recounting a life the exact opposite of the sanctimony described by controversial writer Ridhuan Tee Abdullah, former New Straits Times chief editor Datuk A. Kadir Jasin today rebutted the former’s attack against Muslims visiting non-Muslim houses of worship.

In a post on his blog today, Kadir said he was moved to comment on the National Defence University senior lecturer’s apparent criticism against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s visit to the church of the Holy Family and the Sri Maha Mariammam temple in Klang as the points of contention were near to his heart and part of his growing up.

“I entered a church when I was studying in the St Michael primary and secondary schools in Alor Setar. Not to pray, but for shelter from the heat. I also went to churches to pay my respects to deceased Christian friends,” he wrote.

This continued when Kadir went to New Zealand to pursue his studies in journalism, where he stayed with a priest for a week.

“At his home, I learned of the ‘grace’ or prayer before meals, which went: ‘Bless, O Father, Thy gifts to our use and us to Thy service; for Christ’s sake, Amen’.”

Pigs not created by Allah? Then by whom?

In his commentary piece yesterday, the Muslim convert Ridhuan sought to depict Malay-Muslims as once so devout that they would shun even the flies that have come in contact with pork that is considered “haram” (forbidden) in Islam.

But Kadir recounted a childhood that did not feature the purportedly strict adherence as claimed by Ridhuan.

Instead, he said pigs were not unusual at the village where he grew up, and sometimes escaped the pens in which they were kept by Chinese villagers.

The animals were also a familiar sight at a nearby Siamese village between Tanah Merah and Kubur Panjang in Kedah, as the residents there also domesticated pigs.

“Pigs entering the village were a usual thing then. We chased them out or we let them be as long as they did not damage the crops or get too close to our homes.

“In fact, my grandmother also managed to barter because of the pigs,” Kadir added.

1Malaysia, yet nothing but total silence from Najib.

Pointing out that visits to non-Muslim houses of worships were not alien to multicultural Malaysia, Kadir noted for instance Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s regular appearances in conjunction with non-Muslim religious festivities.

“So what is wrong with a potential candidate speaking in a church or visiting a temple ... this is 1 Malaysia,” he continued.

In a piece in Malay language daily Sinar Harian yesterday that appeared targeted at Anwar, Ridhuan yesterday lambasted Malays for willingly going to non-Muslims worship sites.

“Extraordinary! Previously it was difficult to get Malays to enter churches or temples, and they would even avoid walking outside if they could help it. In markets, they would avoid passing or looking at pork and the pork seller.

“Such was Malays concern for their way of life,” he wrote.

Although Anwar was not specifically named in the article, Ridhuan’s warning for Kajang candidates not to sell out their religion came a week after PKR’s nominee for the March 23 by-election spoke in a church there and a day after he visited a Hindu temple in the constituency. - Malay Mail
