Shooting The Whistleblower For Bad Things

The whole buzz on the Malaysian media over these two weeks is about the obsession to find and take RPK out from London back to Malaysia. Most of them who spoke of these obsessions mostly come from the mob group called United Malays National Organization. Other BN component parties never even mentioned a single word or two about this kind of development. Counting the number, the number from the mob group was about three notably, one from Puad Zakarshi, one from Pete's friend Megat, and one more from Latif Ahmad.

One of the points mentioned by this kaki bodek Latif seems illogical:

Dr Abdul Latif urged the police and Immigration Department to intensify their probe in exposing the sponsor’s identity.

He also claimed that other bloggers could be part of a syndicate to tarnish the country’s good name but that only Raja Petra was special enough to have been sponsored on an overseas trip.

Let's remember that most bloggers don't tarnish. They expose the big fish and the big figures. Back in 2004, there were 18 characters - big fishes including ministers and politicians known to be involved in high-level corruption and mismanagement. Sadly Latif might not know that MSM cowered because they fear repercussion from the Home Ministry over publishing something that could catch the fat cats with the pants down. And to get the ball rolling about big fishes in that, even the IGP friend Musa is also one of them - since he's colluding with underworld figures. Otherwise, why would the name Moo Sai Chin suddenly appeared during Rosli Dahlan's trial?

The Altantuya murder mystery still REMAINS not closed entirely. It's already three years. The sooner such gimmicks and comedy of errors done by gomen go on and on, the longer people are waiting to find out who actually killed Altantuya. Certainly, Sirul and his other partner were made scapegoats as what PI Bala's original SD implies.

Unfortunately, it's true as Pete claims that you need to think more and deeper of how he got out of Malaysia and so forth. But the more important things are in hand now, which to get the bigger fish not going after those small and innocent fishes. If somehow the bigger fish can't be caught even though it is visible and big in size, then there's something wrong with the catcher and it needs sight replacement, if you know what I mean. Or is the catcher afraid of being bitten?

So, since now Musa Hassan has asked the British police to look for Pete, you may know what it could come back in the end. It's like turning the tables around you / hunter becomes the hunted.

Shooting the whistleblower..... Where's that Witness act that Nazri mentioned before?

Ridhuan Tee's "Phony" Theory

I was only a boy when I read a joke about Bowser's phony theory - dinosaurs get extinct because they didn't look left and right before crossing the road.

And this is a theory that I find it somewhat at first I would laugh at it but eventually I find it totally unforgiven and unacceptable. The entire thing and his so called formula is somewhat taking the proportional breakdown of races into calculating things and so on. Somewhat this is quite a familiar thing to me in the form of Proportional Treaty - a jargon used in Insurance business.

I really lost appetite when reading it. It sounded not very nice at it gives a picture that given he's a Utusan columnist, Ridhuan Tee is a perfect case study of Kaki Bodek or an ingratiate. In fact the writing somewhat mirrored of the position of where United Malays National Organisation is right now - in desparate times and to win back Malay support.

I read two pieces of articles. One of them is pointing about why India is very successful now, producing a lot of high-skilled people - especially in information technology is simply because that despite having many practices in faith, culture and otherwise, all Indian nationals followed one common rule, which is secular style of rules. There used to be Malaysia Malaysian concept that was advocated way back in the 60s which encourages people to think in secular way, which was opposed heavily by certain quarters. Pakistan is the exact opposite of India, going behind them because they have things mixed that makes them fall behind: mixing of military, and religion matters into the common law.

A few weeks ago, I also read a chapter of Lee Kuan Yew's memoirs. Part of it points and alludes to why Singapore split and after the split, they became better and more successful than us. The book also points and source it back to ultranationlist views by individuals like Harun Idris, Syed Jaafar Albar. In the end such views by these individuals have caused Malaysia falling behind all because of topics about race that spook other people.

I can really have a good point to consider that such phony view by Ridhuan Tee. In the end, Malaysia paid the terrible price in the long run, losing in all aspects - social, economy, security, education and everything to the high-knowledge and more advanced countries - all because of such views as this.

Cakap Tak Serupa Bikin, Najib?

I really thought that Najib isn't as flip-flop as Pak Lah during the years where we all know Pak Lah to say one moment that and then one moment this. I was really hoping that Najib ain't going to do the same thing ala cakap tak serupa bikin.

Sadly, it happened too for Najib. Maybe perhaps people are nervous on imposing 5% RPGT on every property sale they make in the market. That could scare the shit out of people's pants. And of course APCO has to step in because it could damage his image and perception.

Here's one cakap tak serupa bikin by Najib here.

Aha ! Bik Mama's Stresses

Out of the blue when Malaysiakini reporters decide to ask a question on allegation at Bik Mama, Rosmah got rattled and started to say no time for gossip and lies. Here's the quote:
“I said only relevant questions (about this function). I don’t entertain gossip. I don’t entertain lies. I don’t entertain… This is why… please, this is why I said earlier that we must concentrate on bigger issues.”
I notice some emotional content in that statement. Pretty sure that Rosmah is actually in a very tight situation and indeed in trouble. There are lot of attacks from various corners, in and out. As to illustrate the direction of attacks, you have one corner where Tian Chua said that RM 600K of money was channeled to her in Dubai by an associate of hers. Then Raja Petra was saying that she was paying off Bala with warnings from her brother-in-law Nazim and money from her toyboy Deepak. Then you have Mahathir who was slamming Najib for putting Malaysia in a pro-USA stance, something that doesn't bode well with the old man given the old man harbors suspicion of the Americans - of course that is to say that she's not happy with that too.

And of course, the allegation of her being at the scene of murder of Altantuya.

That is why to this day, Bik Mama is in hell a lot of trouble. Given that she tends to get involved more in things than any other first ladies, sure, she's encountering more trouble from whistleblowers everywhere who tend to expose the misdeeds of the present Najib administration, and those in the past. There are many people who are not happy of how things are shaping up here. That is why there are thorns to be removed with one of them being Pete.

I was pondering a few times, what if every shit hits the fan and she is caught with pants down, while the media is facing at her?

China's Success Story

US President Obama visited China last week, primarily to find out what exactly & how exactly China is doing things that makes it such a success story, surpassing all the so-called "expert economic planners" of the US
& Europe. His team found these 5 basic lessons behind China 's success - it applies equally to our country :


The Chinese believe in Setting Goals, Making Plans, & Focusing on Moving Ahead - there is always the sense of foward motion.

As an example, a huge 6-lane highway in Shanghai took only 2 years from planning to ready for traffic. In the
US, 2 tears will only get you the environment and local authority permite if you are lucky - in Malaysia
in 2 years, they will still be calculating how to inflate the costs, and to whose abang-adik company to award the project.


The Chinese are obsessed with ensuring kids get the right education - English, Maths & Science. They made sure that ther education system reached even the most remote rural areas - today the literacy rate in
China is OVER 90%, surpassing even the USA 's 86%. According to American Educationists, the Chinese kids are way ahead of the kids in the USA .

Meanwhile in Malaysia , our Moo-Moo politicians are determined to retract our education system into the stone age.


The Chinese DO NOT send their elderly to nursing care centres - they personally look after & care for their parents. In the US , nursing care of the elderly is now costing each resident USD 85,000 annually, & this
is rising. The Chinese also believe that the grandparents at home make the best tutors for their children. It also provides a sense of cultural continuity - this helps bind society.

Here its a growing trend to have children brought up by maids, of the lowest educational & moral quality - so our children (the future leaders) grow up with similar language & outlook capability.


In the USA , savings dropped to zero in 2005, and is only now slowly rising to 4%. In China , the savings rate for every household has exceeded 20%. The Chinese believe that fugality & a healthy savings rate are a sure indicator of a country's financial health. High savings lead to increased investments - results in increased productivity, innovation & job growth.

In the West, & aped by our Malaysians, the status symbol is to spend more than you earn, with as many credit cards as possible.In the end, the whole country gets into debt.


In China , eveyone is foward looking - never backwards. New graduates make a vow - never ever will their children & grandchildren ever work in the fields again. With this kind of forward mentality, people are always thinking & planning how, not just to succeed, BUT how to be the best in the world in everything they do.

In Malaysia , we are still, after 24 years, trying to get the window switches of the Proton to work properly, and our Muslim Fundamentalists want us to adopt medieval syariah laws.

So Who's Selling Malaysia Out?

This is one book I find it interesting for because what Mr. Perkins wrote in there bears some similiarities to some economic decisions taken by the BN goverment right now.

Yesterday, Dr. M slammed Najib for now shifting to a pro-US policy. This is something I would love to see how it unfolds between the main camps in UMNO power play right now.

Economically speaking, Malaysia is heading into real trouble by selling its image out at the expense of is battered economy. Already, the coffers in the country are blank, nothing already. The MSM should be blamed for keeping people in the blue about it.

A Case Study of The PPM

You'll come to that shortly of what is actually PPM.

I actually saw a witness testimony during Karpal Singh's sedition trial. When I read the article, I was laughing. That guy who was testifying shows how he is a product and a subject of the PPM brainwashing. If you remember this article by Hisham Rais, you'll find that it is similar to Myth #3....well you have to read to find out.

I'm still happy that some of our Malay friends are now aware of what PPM does - to spoil and confuse the minds of the other people particularly with half-truths, lies and so on and I believe that it will take some time and more convincing to get them to act together. But things get hampered when you don't have sufficient wisdom or understanding to know what is really happening around here? I'd say that the it's high time to get the ball rolling with Nizar's statement on how unIslamic that thing is.

The delusion of only one party is protecting their kind is still running around and many people are still believing in it although that believe is false. After Nizar got the ball rolling, PAS has launched the anti-thesis of UMNO's campaign - If UMNO's called the Juara Rakyat, Pas' is called UMNO Pengkhianat Rakyat.

Reading the four pieces linked in this post will give you a case study on the PPM.

Stamping Them Further Into The Gutter

Seems like the govt. is kind of trying to pretend that there is nothing happening around and they wish to close the cases under the tag as No Further Action. This doesn't happen on one front, but two examples instead. And we got people who are faster enough to detect how stump these top brass are. Perhaps it is mainly of many excuses, not only no proof but in fact that they want people to forget it as if nothing happens and the last of all, to cover the boss's ass - Najib's ass that is and someone behind him - Bik Mama.

The government is now in Catch 22 situation and is caught with the backs behind the brick wall.

After Americk wrote an e-mail (see Bala's Six Conditions For Interview With MACC ), there's still yet a response coming to them from the MACC, undecided on whether they wish to conduct the interview with Bala. They wish to put this in cold storage, thinking that Shamsul Iskandar could not find him as what he promised, but Americk's mail means that they cannot ignore it at all. If they attempt to close, people will think that the MACC is colluding with their political masters in attempting to cover up the blackmail thing and subsequently pointing all the way back to the start - Altantuya's murder.

Having them to come to Singapore or London to take Bala's statement is going to cost them a lot of money, particularly in the latter since a pound is RM 5.50 here and they are not willing to come out with a lot of money to go there to do the job. Some slackers indeed really, I suppose?

Like I said, it's a 'behind the 8-ball' situation. If they don't take the statement, people say that MACC is covering up for First Couple and colluding with the political masters. But if they risk taking the statement from Bala, it is showing the professionalism, but in the process, it will not bode well for the First Couple, particularly Big Mama.

This is only one part of it. And this comes to Karpal Singh. Karpal has taken up Nazri's challenge to prosecute Mr. 'Korek' V.K Lingam and surely Karpal is itching to kick off the case. To make sure he doesn't waste his time, he has asked for a fiat to prosecute Lingam in seven days. But that depends on the A.G chambers to issue it or not. But of course, if Karpal doesn't get that fiat, it tells people that the government is colluding with those brokering judges or those white collar criminals!

You keep seeing and hearing "People First Performance Now" slogans everywhere, but if there are no responses to those above or nothing happens, then that slogan is pretty hopeless and no substance at all. Sometimes, you will need to stamp them into the gutter to make things work.

Some Misc. Stuff In The Weekend

Teresa Teng's Moon In My Heart track was one of the greatest Chinese melodies of all time.

This video showed Hayley Westenra trying Teresa's act and it awed many.

Note: Recorded from the Kaoshiung games

Bala's Six Conditions For Interview With MACC

On December 3, Malaysian Insider has published an article in regards of the MACC requesting assistance from PKR Youth Chief Shamsul Iskandar Akin to provide help for the agency to find Bala in regards to the payoff claims related to the Altantuya murder case.


PUTRAJAYA, Dec 4 — PKR Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin has promised the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) that he will help the agency find P. Balasubramaniam to investigate the private investigator’s claims of pay-offs related to the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case.

Shamsul gave his word to help the anti-graft authorities when they interviewed him today over his report about Bala’s claims that Datuk Seri Najib Razak knew murdered Mongolian model Altantuya and the private investigator was paid to retract statements to that effect.

“The prime minister can no longer remain silent on these allegations and should come forward to clear his name,” Shamsul told reporters after the interview at the MACC headquarters here.

He had lodged a report with the MACC on Wednesday against architect Nazim Razak and a businessman called Deepak Jaikishan, who were implicated by Bala as those who told him to overturn his first statutory declaration made in July 2008.

Nazim is Najib’s brother. Deepak was repeatedly named during the series of interviews published by the Malaysia-Today news portal recently and was painted as a key go-between in getting Bala to recant his initial claims which linked Najib to Altantuya.

The next day, Bala's lawyer Americk Sidhu has written an e-mail in response to En Abdul Rahman Bachok, representing MACC, indicating that Bala was prepared to provide a statement to the team. However, six conditions were laid down by Bala that must be agreed by the MACC before proceeding.

1. Interview can only be done in either Singapore or London.
2. Date and time of interview will be agreed mutually by both parties.
3. Air fares will be borne out by the MACC.
4. Accomodation, transport and etc for all parties involved will be borne by the MACC.
5. Interview transcripts will be in English language only.
6. AV recordings will be done by Bala's counsels

The conditions laid were done for his safety.

The full e-mail by Americk to En Abdul Rahman (published with consent) is as follows:

Dear En. Abdul Rahman,

Re: Report lodged by Shamsul Iskandar Mohd. Akin in relation to the recent disclosure by Balasubramaniam.

With reference to the above matter, I wish to inform you that I am counsel representing Mr. Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal.

I have been made to understand that you are desirous of interviewing Mr. Balasubramaniam in connection with the report lodged with your commission by En. Shamsul Iskandar Mohd. Akin on the 3rd December 2009.

In this respect I have been instructed to inform you that Mr. Balasubramaniam is prepared to assist you in your investigations and is further prepared to be interviewed by your goodself, with conditions as follows:

1. That the interview be conducted in either Singapore or London.
2. That the time and date of the interview be mutually agreed upon to suit all parties involved.
3. That all necessary air fares be borne by the MACC including those of counsel involved.
4. That all hotel expenses, subsistence, transportation and meals in respect of my client, myself and other counsel necessarily present, be borne by the MACC.
5. That any statement recorded from my client be in the English language and a copy thereof be given to my client.
6. That audio visual recordings of this interview be made by ourselves.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause you but we are sure you are appreciative of the fact that our client is understandably concerned about his safety and welfare if this interview were to be conducted in Malaysia and will not entertain any assurances given by your goodselves or any other party in consideration of doing so.

Please could you respond to me at this email address to enable me to contact my client for instructions in respect of any proposals you may have.

Thank you.
Yours sincerely,
Americk Sidhu
On the 8th, another phone conversation between Americk and the MACC went on and it seems that the MACC has agreed to Bala's terms and conditions but needed assistance in the interview arrangement.

Dear En. Abdul Rahman,

Further to my email of the 4 December 2009, and to the subsequent telephone conversation between us on the 8 December 2009, I would be most obliged to receive a response to my offer of assistance in arranging an interview with my client Mr.P. Balasubramaniam.

As you obviously have my mobile number, please feel free to contact me at any time to make the necessary arrangements.

Yours sincerely,
Americk Sidhu

Secularism Was Why India Was Successful

Utusan is UMNO's mouthpiece. And such piece below is what I felt that Utusan is a loose cannon. What they preach - since being perceived as the UMNO mouthpiece is that they are using the three common myths that is to fool the mind of the Malays. If you recall Hisham Rais's article called Projek Pembodohan Melayu, you will notice that one of the myths is that the Chinese / Indians are perceived to be controlling the economical interests in this country over themselves.

That myth is actually non-existential.


Cuit: Alkisah India di India dan India di Malaysia

Oleh Zaini Hassan, Utusan Malaysia

(yang berada di kota raya Hyderabad, India dari 29 November-4 Disember menghadiri Forum Editor-Editor Sedunia)

BERADA di kota raya tua India, Hyderabad selama seminggu minggu lalu amat memberi kesedaran kepada diri ini. Setiap inci persegi tanah di kota-kotanya dihuni oleh ratusan insan. Setiap kilometer persegi dihuni oleh ratusan ribu insan dan setiap bandar raya di negara keramat itu dihuni oleh jutaan manusia. Dan India ialah tanah bagi 1.2 bilion umat manusia. Angkanya bertambah setiap saat.

Berada di India bererti kita berada dalam satu realiti kemanusiaan yang sebenar. India ialah tanah bagi manusia ramai. Jurang hidupnya adalah antara langit dan bumi. Yang papa terlalu papa, yang kaya terlalu kaya. Yang kaya, tidak pandang ke bawah, yang bawah tetap di bawah.

Kasta, darjat atau keturunan masih diamalkan secara tebal di seluruh India. Ia semacam satu agama. Kasta atas tidak boleh bersatu kasta rendah.

Jalan rayanya haru-biru. Suasananya hiruk-pikuk. Bas, lori, kereta, basikal, teksi roda tiga, kereta lembu, kuda bersimpang siur. Bunyi hon adalah wajib. Pegang sahaja stereng, bunyi hon dulu. Di belakang bas dan lori tertulis `tolong hon’. Tiada siapa marah jika dia dihon. Hon ialah nyawa.

Semasa dalam perjalanan menghadiri makan malam perpisahan di Istana Chowmohalla (dibina pada 1780 oleh Nawab Nizam Ali Khan, Asaf Jah II), pemandu bas yang membawa kami tiba-tiba turun lari meninggalkan bas yang dibawanya. Hilang dalam lautan manusia dan kenderaan. Kami terpinga-pinga. Dua lelaki preman masing-masing memegang submesingan jenis sterling yang mengawal keselamatan kami dalam bas berkata ``jangan bimbang’’. Pemandu tadi sebenarnya turun untuk meleraikan kenderaan-kenderaan yang sudah berpintal di atas jalan raya. Dia bertindak menjadi polis trafik.

Sambil dia menyelesaikan kekusutan itu, saya melihat di seberang sana seorang penumpang turun dari teksi roda tiga yang dinaikinya menolak kenderaan itu yang mati di atas jalan raya. Tiada rasa marah pun di muka penumpang itu yang menolong menolak teksinya yang rosak.

Tiada siapa peduli apa yang berlaku di sekeliling mereka. Polis trafik pun menjalankan apa yang terdaya, tanpa memperlihatkan sedikit pun kekerutan di dahinya. Trafik lalu lintas tetap berjalan lancar, walaupun dalam suasana kekecohan.

Sebelah malam, di tepi-tepi jalan insan-insan tidur merata-rata. Ada yang telah nyenyak membungkus tubuh dengan kain selimut daripada kedinginan kota itu. Yang belum tidur, duduk mencangkung sambil memandang ke satu tujuan yang tidak diketahui.

Hampir dua jam bergelut kami tiba di istana bereka bentuk masjid itu. Di sepanjang dinding tembok istana tertulis tulisan dalam bahasa Inggeris ``Ini tempat suci jangan kencing’’. Kencing berdiri sambil si anunya memancut ke dinding adalah pemandangan umum yang biasa. Mungkin kerana terlalu ramai manusia, tandas bukan lagi pilihan. Awas, setiap pagi berhati-hati berjalan di kaki-kaki lima kerana terlalu banyak jerangkap samar dari isi perut manusia berlonggok di sana-sini. Suasana serupa juga juga khabarnya boleh dilihat di bandar raya lain termasuk di Mumbai.

Sampainya di istana itu, kami dibawa masuk ke dalamnya. Satu suasana antara langit dengan bumi. Kawasan istana lama itu diwarnai dengan lampu-lampu berwarni yang menyenangkan perasaan. Bagaikan berada dalam kisah Hikayat 1001. Tarian-tarian Bollywood dari era 50-an hingga kini dipersembahkan kepada kami. Selesai persembahan kami dijamu dengan juadah Hyderabad tersohor di dunia, nasi beriyani.

Kami makan beriyani kambing dan ayam, tanpa mempedulikan apa-apa lagi. Ia terlalu sedap tanpa boleh ditandingi oleh mana-mana restoran Malaysia, waima Hameediah di Campbell Street, Pulau Pinang mahupun Mahbob di Bangsar.

Di luar tembok sana, suasananya adalah terlalu kontras. India yang penuh warna-warni. India yang penuh dengan drama. Di dada-dada akhbarnya konflik di mana-mana. Di Parlimennya pun haru-biru seperti di atas jalan rayanya juga. Televisyen memaparkan bagaimana seorang speaker dewannya tidak diendahkan oleh ahli-ahli Parlimen yang memboikot sesi soal-jawab. Akhbar Deccan Chronicle dalam karikatur muka satunya (macam Senyum Kambing) keesokan harinya mencuit: Mengapa mereka tidak mahu buat sesi soal-jawab dalam kantin saja, kan di situ tempatnya ahli Parlimen selalu melepak?

India tetap India. Orang India ialah masyarakat yang begitu unik. Jika kita sering tengok wayang Tamil atau Hindi, itulah budaya mereka. Kecoh, kecoh dan kecoh.

Namun, kita di Malaysia pun ada orang India. Kecohnya pun lebih kurang sama. Mereka ini rata-ratanya terdiri daripada ahli-ahli profesional, peguam dan kini menjadi ahli politik. Di Malaysia hanya orang India yang pandai-pandai sahaja yang sering buat bising. Mereka menguasai Majlis Peguam dan kini mereka sudah ramai di Parlimen, bukan mewakili MIC, tapi mewakili DAP dan PKR.

Kerana mereka lantang dan suka buat haru-biru, suara mereka sering kedengaran. Salah seorangnya ialah N. Kulasegaran yang kini memegang jawatan Naib Pengerusi DAP Perak. Beliau lantang mempersoalkan hak-hak orang Melayu.

Katanya, beliau tidak faham mengapa setelah bertahun lamanya masih ada kelompok manusia percaya kepada warna kulit atau penampilan yang lebih tinggi daripada satu kaum lain.

Kita tidak pasti apakah beliau ikhlas dengan kenyataannya itu. Dia tahukah apa yang dia cakap? Tapi yang pasti kenyataannya itu cukup sensitif dan akan membuat kumpulan lain marah. Tapi seperti biasa orang Melayu marahnya tidak lama. Tak apalah. Orang Melayu tidak seperti orang India, walaupun ada juga Melayu yang darah keturunan Keling (DKK), tapi darah Melayu yang lembut banyak menguasai mereka.

Jika di India, mungkin kita akan sentiasa dikawal oleh pengawal bermesingan. Kulasegaran perlu mengambil cuti. Pergilah melawat ke India, dan hayatilah erti kehidupan di sana, hayatilah erti kasta dan darjat, miskin dan kaya, seperti yang saya alami minggu lalu.

Seburuk-buruk Malaysia, inilah tanah tumpah darah kita.


Since the writer touches on his 'adventure' in India, let's talk about the real Indians - those that come from India. Sure that the society level there consists of caste, many languages and races, but they do not behave like bigots like the neighbor Pakistan. Sad to say, Malaysia , though not the mirror image of Pakistan is starting to behave like one. Behaving like one refers - for example - meddling with other affairs that they are not capable of handling of, more concerned about the destruction of others, thinking that they are great and etc..

Though India is a bit behind us, they have became the 3rd favorite spot in the world that attracts FDI. And 12 brilliant American scientists known are Indian-born. The income per capita that they are generating is slowly going to overtake us. And as a result, we have a few rich men in the world that comes from India. And of course the list and accomplishments goes on and on. Where are we economically? We lost to India. Period. And it is part of the our current thinking above that factors into that.

Almost half of my colleagues that I work with are from India and they have produced good people specializing in Information Technology that we have yet to reach their level in terms of expertise. Most worked at Bangalore and if you spend time talking about them, most don't talk go much about whacking others asses or so - just because you are fairer, I am from Tamil Nadu and etc..

What makes India better than Malaysia despite having many similarities including the DNA?

The answer is of secularism. The Indians are aware of their Constitution and keep going back to that when there's doubt. But in Malaysia, many have no idea of going back to the constitution of the difficult thing arises. Why is Pakistan falling behind? It's because you have the religion clergy and the military getting mixed into running the country. Even the Pakistani professor was saying that Pakistan fell behind India because of the clergy's inteference. What I mean is that you cannot mix religion into governance of the country. It collides and interferes with the secularism in this country. I find Malaysia running along the similar lines as well there, but at a lesser severity as them. But it's the same thing, same line all long like Pakistan.

The leaders here got it all wrong. Malaysia is a secular nation as defined in the Constitution. It is not an Islamic country. It is a nation that uses laws inherited from the British commonwealth. By right, laws and conditions, race and political party-based are not supposedly being mixed in that.

What Zaini mentioned about Indians and the keling blood is tantamount of what a Neo-Nazi would do if he's allowed to make his fool runs on the street. Perhaps whoever has the same sentiment as Utusan Malaysia mentions about this should go, run and grab a copy of Mein Kampf - since this piece has being portrayed as how you hate someone by skin as akin to 'Aryan Supremacy' thing.

Namun, kita di Malaysia pun ada orang India. Kecohnya pun lebih kurang sama. Mereka ini rata-ratanya terdiri daripada ahli-ahli profesional, peguam dan kini menjadi ahli politik. Di Malaysia hanya orang India yang pandai-pandai sahaja yang sering buat bising. Mereka menguasai Majlis Peguam dan kini mereka sudah ramai di Parlimen, bukan mewakili MIC, tapi mewakili DAP dan PKR.

Kerana mereka lantang dan suka buat haru-biru, suara mereka sering kedengaran. Salah seorangnya ialah N. Kulasegaran yang kini memegang jawatan Naib Pengerusi DAP Perak. Beliau lantang mempersoalkan hak-hak orang Melayu.

Katanya, beliau tidak faham mengapa setelah bertahun lamanya masih ada kelompok manusia percaya kepada warna kulit atau penampilan yang lebih tinggi daripada satu kaum lain.

Now these three paragraphs illustrated what a person who is convinced of what the BTN would preach and say. First, anybody can represent a political party of their choice, depending on whether the philosophy fits them or not. There is no such thing as all Indian politicians join MIC as the first para would suggest. In fact, MIC - claiming that they protect the Indian rights - but from who? Is it to say that other races are enemies?

If Kulasegaran notices that there are things the Malays and anyone else should consider, evaluate and examine the angle of his points of suggestion, he should pose a question to them. It is good to encourage critical thinking. Of what our Utusan guy was saying, it is to say that the rights are totally unquestionable. Does it mean, you still take it if you start to notice it that it is wrong logically, morally or contrasting against actual believes and personal philosphy? The tone of the statement indicates of a 'shut up, butt out and listen' behavior that echoes like learning in school. Why students could not think and find solutions to their problems is simply because of this irrelevant run-in-the mill approach. It will not work in the current age.

The third paragraph suggest in my opinion, is to actually let everyone - not including just one race to consider - The problem that is raised is showing non-secularism that is happening. Kula's statement is more or less a question. It is not questioning the Malay rights or so.I t is the same question that can be asked in South Africa about racial discrimination. There is nothing wrong in asking that question. To state that thing that it questions Malay rights is utterly bullshit and it akin to singing the non-existential myth.

And there you have it..two police reports against Utusan because of Zaini's remarks.

You might to read this article by Dr. Farukh Saleem. Previously, Dr. Farukh admitted that western nations and non-Muslim nations are more successful because of the education penentration level, which is higher and the style that teaches people to problem-solving skills instead of everything in memory.

Capital suggestion
By Dr Farrukh Saleem

Here's what is happening in India :

The two Ambani brothers can buy 100 percent of every company listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) and would still be left with $30 billion to spare. The four richest Indians can buy up all goods and services produced over a year by 169 million Pakistanis and still be left with $60 billion to spare. The four richest Indians are now richer than the forty richest Chinese.

In November, Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex flirted with 20,000 points. As a consequence, Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries became a $100 billion company (the entire KSE is capitalized at $65 billion). Mukesh owns 48 percent of Reliance.

In November, comes Neeta's birthday. Neeta turned forty-four three weeks ago. Look what she got from her husband as her birthday present:
A sixty-million dollar jet with a custom fitted master bedroom, bathroom with mood lighting, a sky bar, entertainment cabins, satellite television, wireless communication and a separate cabin with game consoles. Neeta is Mukesh Ambani's wife, and Mukesh is not India's richest but the second richest.

Mukesh is now building his new home, Residence Antillia (after a mythical, phantom island somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean ). At a cost of $1 billion this would be the most expensive home on the face of the planet. At 173 meters tall Mukesh's new family residence, for a family of six, will be the equivalent of a 60-storeyed building. The first six floors are reserved for parking. The seventh floor is for car servicing and maintenance. The eighth floor houses a mini-theatre. Then there's a health club, a gym and a swimming pool. Two floors are reserved for Ambani family's guests. Four floors above the guest
floors are family floors all with a superb view of the Arabian Sea. On top of everything are three helipads. A staff of 600 is expected to care for the family and their family home.

In 2004, India became the 3rd most attractive foreign direct investment destination.. Pakistan wasn't even in the top 25 countries. In 2004, the United Nations, the representative body of 192 sovereign member states, had requested the Election Commission of India to assist the UN in the holding elections in Al Jumhuriyah al Iraqiyah and Dowlat-e Eslami-ye Afghanestan. Why the Election Commission of India and not the Election Commission of Pakistan? After all, Islamabad is closer to Kabul than is Delhi .

Imagine, 12 percent of all American scientists are of Indian origin; 38 percent of doctors in America are Indian; 36 percent of NASA scientists are Indians; 34 percent of Microsoft employees are Indians; and 28 percent of IBM employees are Indians.

For the record: Sabeer Bhatia created and founded Hotmail... Sun Microsystems was founded by Vinod Khosla. The Intel Pentium processor, that runs 90 percent of all computers, was fathered by Vinod Dham. Rajiv Gupta co-invented Hewlett Packard's E-speak project. Four out of ten Silicon Valley start-ups are run by Indians. Bollywood produces 800 movies per year and six Indian ladies have won Miss Universe/Miss World titles over the past 10 years.

For the record: Azim Premji, the richest Muslim entrepreneur on the face of the planet, was born in Bombay and now lives in Bangalore. India now has more than three dozen billionaires; Pakistan has none (not a single dollar billionaire).

The other amazing aspect is the rapid pace at which India is creating wealth. In 2002, Dhirubhai Ambani, Mukesh and Anil Ambani's father, left his two sons a fortune worth $2.8 billion. In 2007, their combined wealth stood at $94 billion. On 29 October 2007, as a result of the stock market rally and the appreciation of the Indian rupee, Mukesh became the richest person in the world, with net worth climbing to US$63.2 billion (Bill Gates, the richest American, stands at around $56 billion).

Indians and Pakistanis have the same Y-chromosome haplogroup. We have the same genetic sequence and the same genetic marker (namely: M124).
We have the same DNA molecule, the same DNA sequence. Our culture, our traditions and our cuisine are all the same. We watch the same movies and sing the same songs. What is it that Indians have and we don't?


And also to mention: They think of Construction of own nation, unlike other nations who are just concerned with destruction of others...

Simple answer why the Indian fare better than the Pakis'... They don't focus on religion and neither do they spend time and money in devising ways to kill their own and everyone else over religion. They are secular.

"..The Pakistanis are Muslims. They have allowed the Islamic clergy and the Military to run their country.."

The Bashing Fest Continues!

How I really loved to see how Dr. M hitting back at Nazri by challenging Nazri to quit UMNO. It's true. UMNO is perceived by some quarters as a racist party for the promoting the Malay Supremacy propaganda and Nazri is part of it. This is only one part of the fight fest over the BTN subject.

You see, the current BTN chief is the UMNO information chief, and he sided with the hawks. The hawks presently known were Muhyiddin, Sharizat and Noh Omar. These hawks, when revealed their wings have shown how extreme right-winged they are. And then there are the doves, white chess pieces that includes Ku Li and the PKR man Johari Abdul (Sungai Petani MP)

While both players slug out over this, the middle ground also shook hard at this BTN. At the forum just now many have been digging at the BTN, sharing their past experiences of brainwashing to hate others while defending Barisan Nasional or in particular the UMNO mob.

As for both Dr. M and Nazri, while they whack one another, let's remember that they have forgotten one thing in mind. If Dr. M says that BTN doesn't need revamped, people say that he turned it into a super-racist agency. On the other hand, if Nazri calls Dr. M a racist, what about himself as he is in a party that people think it's a racist thing!

It's nothing more fighting to a stalemate with both sides of the mob losing. phaw!!

Good..I would love to see the bashing fest go on and on. Cheer on!!!

Good...Two Monkeys Fighting One Another!

If you remember previously where Mahathir whacked Nazri and vice-versa a few months ago, now here's another whack you whack me thing on the BTN thing. Earlier on, Mahathir said that BTN doesn't need revamped, which is opposite of what Nazri was saying. And just now Nazri went to hit back at Mahathir.

Ooooh, I just love how these two 'monkeys' fighting one another. Hisham Rais would love it.

If Gurujib Says It's Frivolous, Look At The Opposite

"I will not entertain any frivolous statement." - Najib, 4 December

It was on that day where Najib said that statement by P. Balasubramaniam that his brother Nazim had paid him money to buying silence was frivolous. If you are reading that thing, you may think that either he is naive or he is purposely trying to cover up Bik Mama by saying the opposite.

In Malaysian politics, approximately 80 percent of the what politicians say is actually the other way round. So, for example, when there is information that politician A had committed a crime of the scale of X, people will start saying that A did X. The next day A said that he did not do X but on the blogosphere, maybe a document leaked out said that A did. So what it means that A lied to cover his ass. No..the correct fact is that 80 percent of the time, politicians will say the other way round of what actually happened.

Goebbels famously said that if the lie is repeated numerous of times, then that lie becomes a fact. Or shall I say that history and propaganda is written by the victor. Look back at the Malayan Union saga, and you can see the point there.

Coming back to Gurujib saying that PI Bala's frivolous statement, you only need to see the antonym of the action. If he said that the statement is frivolous, the answer is, the statement is actually serious. They know of the statement, Nazim is implicated, Big Mama is in trouble now. You do not need to be a rocket scientist to go deeper. Just some common sense would do. And that's why the papers, the APCO public relations machine was scrambling like mad on that Friday to try cover up the mess that is her ass before things got worse.

But that will not cover the lid. In fact a few months earlier, some UM students, those studying there were prosecuted today at the KL Sessions court for writing the famous phrase "Bini Puaka" obviously pointing to Rosmah. Not all can be fooled. And I surmised something from reading that charges at the students: they knew Rosmah did it. Whatever was mentioned above and tracing it back to October 2006 was pointed back at her. And many others knew it as well.

You only need to do some thinking cap once a while to get the real message behind it.

In Memoriam

Today I will not talk about my usual stuff. It's something personal.

Today is exactly three years since my gran's passing. The date still etches in my memory and the night she died I was not there because of work commitments. She was at sure of what she wanted before she went off.

We gave her the tools to cure but she refused, intending to go and end the suffering.

You can say R.I.P or whatever you want, but I just want to mark today as respect in passing.

That means no more home cooked food already in the last three years and counting.

There are things I still remember about and the picture box that she has that I kept as a memento.

Of course there's something I intend to write today about Gurujib, but that thing, if you are smart and insightful, you'd figure out. No, I put this for today.

Said Hamdan Could Have Left Earlier

One thing that MACC chief Ahmad Said Hamdan did right was to quit even if it is 5 months ahead of the impending retirement in May. Malaysiakini quoted that Hamdan quit not because of political pressure but on personal reasons. But somehow, I believe during the man's period of leading the newly christened MACC, the agency was tarnished by several cases like inability to charge big fishes (e.g, players in the Lingam tape), those high-profile figures that are allegedly involved in corruption and Beng Hock's death in custody.

Interrogation practices by them are put in question after the Beng Hock case in July. As a matter of fact, Said Hamdan could have quit 4 months ago. In Japan, someone would quit if something bad takes place in his watch. That is full responsibility. In Malaysia it is the other way round.

Said Hamdan could have left much earlier, since his son, a MAS pilot was caught with pornography in Australia. But the inception of MACC at that time was too early, so I thought to quit while the new agency is inception means abrupt.

But I must stress the point is that the main problem now is that MACC is still perceived as unable to charge high-profile people in corruption without fear. As the saying goes, going for the small fish in the big pond. I just would want to see how his number two Abu Kassim picks the ball and runs it in January.

Phaw, Makkal Sakthi Ain't Last Long!

I remembered the nomination day at Bagan Pinang. I was there to see the election campaign there. One on end of the main road towards the nomination center, Makkal Sakthi - just days ago declared their support for Barisan Nasional - was heading towards the nomination center. PAS and PR supporters were in the middle, while the school grounds were occupied by the Barisan Nasional supporters. As the newly formed Indian party headed towards the school, the PAS people and party supporters would not allow them to come and chased them off away.

But somehow, they played part of BN winning that Bagan Pinang. What was interesting at that time was their choice of supporting BN and having Gurujib to come and grace their opening. And an interesting is that they get red packets from BN brass for their support. However, support has its consequences as the MIC has said a hardcore NO to them for they would interfere with the Indian support. Wrong. MIC at that time still creates problems.

Back in Bagan Pinang, I was with Zorro during the nomination and after witnessing the pushing away of the men in white, Zorro did mentioned of the party will not survive in the next six months after October. Well, it is less than six months where the newly formed party had leadership problems where some committee members want Thanenthiran out of the post, saying that he had become another Samy Vellu. Plot to topple him (quoted)? Not really. It could be game over before the real game kicks off. really happened sooner than I thought. Makkal Sakhti should learn the same lesson as what PAS did before. In the past, they did join the mob UMNO but realized that they were being used for nothing and learnt a very bitter lesson. That was what Kelantan people learned of that.

Expendable. That's one word to sum this up.

Someone's Not Happy And Three Good Judges Get Thrown Off

I have already got a feeling that some judges who are not biased and delivered their verdicts based on the proper rule of law will have their asses on the line and moved to cold storage. The reasoning is simple = their verdicts were not in favor of Barisan Nasional and such that they had to appeal to the Court of Appeal and Federal Court. I think that really pisses them off and such that they want to take those people who do real justice in the courtroom into the storage room.

I remembered back then when Gani Patail was so enraged that the DPP that was initially in the sedition case against RPK got transferred into cold storage because the DPP knew that there is no way to win the case by rigging it. The mob called Barisan Nasional is having problems with some characters that goes against the creed and this one of the ways to rig the ball game to win. I guess they are a bunch of sore losers really.

The mob wants to win the Allah case at all costs, swatting aside Herald although morally, it is wrong and it actually violates the real Abrahamic teachings. Presiding the cases is one Ms Lau Bee Lan - also part of the Nizar vs Zambry case / earlier stages of the Anwar cases. Many verdicts are delivered are against Barisan Nasional.

Earlier on, even if the law clearly states so that there must be a by-election when an assemblyman violates a state constituition, Barisan was unwilling to let go, despite having their unofficial entity in their coalition helping that assemblyman to stay put. When that presiding judge says no and asked the EC to run the election, some big shot is not happy and she's moved somewhere again, never to come back to that same division again.

Even the MACC, police and some people are not happy to say that particular judge saying that having taking witness statements are confined to working hours only.

Have a look on the two judges at this page:

Look at how these three good judges get moved out for something bad.

Someone or those walking in the corridors of power are not happy that these characters are going against their game plan to play crook and win at all times. In games, it's win some, you lose some. Fair and square. But this is not a usual game. It is the judiciary and doing this and that is equivalent to tampering it and outsiders will not have the confidence to ply their trade. So what Ahmad Husni was talking about Malaysian economy lagging is true, and cleaning of this level still remains unacceptable.

I wonder what if the Agong listened to all of us and chose someone other than Zaki? What if the other thing happens instead of this? Maybe a bit better or so. But we will never be in this kind of situation right now. Was His majesty ill-advised over this, being persuaded to take the man?

The newspapers never have the guts to show it, but if Al-Jazeera were to pick it up, the face goes down as what happened to Kartika. Got booed...'s going to be nice day sometime to come out and whack the mob.
