The police should reopen investigations on former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad on alleged abuse of power, said former Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigations Department CID) chief Mat Zain Ibrahim today.
In an open letter to Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ismail Omar, Mat Zain said he was referring to then Anti-Corruption Agency’s (ACA) probe on Mahathir under the instruction of its then director-general, Shafee Yahya.
“Former IGP Musa Hassan and Attorney-General (AG) Abdul Gani Patail told the media in April 2008 that the probe against Mahathir was closed by former AG Mohtar Abdullah in February 2000.
“But I tell you that the case is still open,” said Mat Zain.
Mat Zain said that the case could not have been closed in February 2000 as the police reports were only made against Mahathir in June that year.
He also said a businessman lodged a subsequent report against Mahathir on July 22, 2000.
“The investigation papers were only produced to AG Chambers in November 2000. Even then, the KL police delayed further probe pending new statements from others, including Shafee,” said Mat Zain.
Training his guns against Musa and Gani, Mat Zain said that it was obvious that the duo were attempting to deceive the rakyat by saying the the case against Mahathir was closed.
“What’s worse is that they passed the buck to a dead person (Mohtar) to save their own necks,” said Mat Zain.
He alleged that duo were up to the same tricks when they deceived Mahathir into believing that Anwar had sodomised his driver Azizan Abu Bakar at Tivolli Villa, when the building was not even constructed when the said crime was allegedly committed.
“I believe even Mahathir would not be able fathom the duo’s statement which doesn’t make sense,” Mat Zain.
He urged Ismail to refer to Shafee’s book, “From estate boy to ACA chief” to get more information pertaining the investigation against Mahathir.
“I urge the police to reopen the investigations as the details mentioned in the book should be considered as new developments to the case,” said Mat Zain.
Anwar Ibrahim spent six years in jail for interferring the police’s investigation concerning the sexual allegation against him. So will Mahathir Mohamad be investigated for allegedly interfering in a corruption case, brought up by the ex-CID chief, Mat Zain Ibrahim? Or is there one law for BN’s supporter, in the like of Mahathir, and another for opponent of BN? Is this one country, with two sets of laws, for a similar offense?Justice must be accorded to the Rakyat by accounting Dr M’s excess and ultra right wing activities. He is currently a threat to the peace of the country as ant-islam video clip produced by a ultra right wing racist in the US.
After 72 hours of all the drama and action, finally has hit the nail in the coffin. MP Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham’s in Twitter as “What is it some of you folk here were saying about only bark, not bite?” Yes it did show the guts to take this bold move but will it have to bite the dust in future Without an iota of doubt, early general elections has drawn varied reactions, ranging from consternation and condemnation to relief and euphoria. those that stand to gain or lose the most, or those that derive political patronage from said groups, have been very vocal.We should all learn to avoid cliches, not ‘like the plague’ but, perhaps ‘like Nazri a tainted politician’. The headlines may make you throw up, but they also throw up great opportunities for creative and contemporary similes.Just as election time makes us choose between the relative importance of issues and personalities, we can ask which of these two decisive forces lends itself better to creative similes. These days, issues seem to go on forever, just like politicians. But since there are many more netas around, they provide a bigger pool in our search for updated figures of speech.UMNO’S inheritors have their own common quality which is as trademarked as UMNO duarchy’s inscrutability. You can as easily say ‘as smugly sarcastic as Mahathir This party is tailor-made for its wannabe Nazri
One scam follows the other, taking the heat off the earlier scam. Of course, the hyper-active media moves on even as the earlier ‘huge scandal’ is consigned to the backburner, till it resurfaces.Former Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigations Department (CID) chief Mat Zain Ibrahim has called on the police to re-open an investigation against former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad for allegedly interfering in a corruption case.he allegation of Mahathir abusing his power is not surprising at all. During his 22 years reign, surely there have been cases of a similar nature being committed by Mahathir. It’s just that no action has been instituted to investigated given the power structure of the country, the PM gets to select his successor while still in office. The successor naturally feels obligated to his predecessor and, in all probabilities, is unlikely to pursue any such abuses allegedly perpetuated by his predecessor. Only a change of govt would bring such abuses to light. Despite Najib’s advice against any change as being necessarily good, change is necessary to promote good governance, bring accountability and facilitate transparency. So change is a necessity of progress, change we must, change we will for the greater good of the country
The case can be reopened only when the BN is out of power. All those in my circle of close relatives will help to vote it OUT at the GE13. Mahathir may escape if UMNO win the next election but he cannot escape the day of judgment after his death at Masyar! How severe punishment at Mashar?? Ask mahathir, he knows!! Or his thick skin can withstand?The Malaysian Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) said the police have yet to produce the actual officers accused of brutality during Bersih 3.0 to answer allegations against them The police has always been cooperative, but they did not give you what you want. We have a new meaning for the word cooperative.
Police should open an investigation paper on Perak DAP chairman Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham’s remarks questioning the moves taken by Muslim in protesting the “Innocence Of Muslims” film, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said.
He said Ngeh’s remarks had obviously sparked anger among Muslims in the country and many quarters had also lodged police reports on the matter.
“After the police open an investigation paper, it will be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers. The Attorney-General will decide under which Section the case will be investigated,” Nazri (picture) told reporters here today.
Ngeh, in his tweet two days ago, had allegedly questioned Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaludin’s intention to stage a protest against the short film and asked whether Muslims were spending too much time and energy on the issue.
The low-budget film directed by Sam Bacile from California, which depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bad light, had sparked violent protests across the Muslim world.
ll these acts of hooliganism and violence perpetrated by Umno/MCA/MIC/Perkasa goons will not be reported in the Umno-BN controlled media.The only way for such kind of news to reach the rural Malaysian folks is by word of mouth. Everyone going back home to their kampongs and towns should spread these news to their family members, relatives and friends. Violence and intimidation is a sign of weakness, not strength. The display of power cannot instill loyalty and submission, but only resentment and has led to the eventual downfall of many regimes in the world.The Umno hooligans are not only on destruction path, but by throwing nails they are also endangering the lives of other motorists who are using the same road.What if one of the innocent motorist suffered a puncture and the car crashed as a result. Worse, what if he or she dies in the crash? Will the home minister be held responsible?PKR Wanita chief Fuziah Salleh, you are right. In splashing your bus and offices with red paint, Umno Baru is throwing all its ‘ong’ at your coalition.
“No need for guarantees. It is decided by the people of Johor themselves,” said Hishammuddin
In any mature democratic country, politicians are well experienced in dealing with the media. They are expert at making statements that cannot be twisted and are doubly careful to make sure that what they say is exactly what they mean.the people or the majority of people in Johor wants. So, did he understand what “guarantee” the reporter was asking him? And what did he mean by “political risks”? Did he mean that being stoned and having splashed with red paint are “political risks”?Can he confirm this is what he meant? If so, it looks like he may not be able to step foot in five states. Hishammuddin, your elegant silence on the political hooliganism and violence will only tell Malaysians one thing – that you are a liar and you actually knew and condone these incidences.
As such, Malaysians are of the opinion that you are unfit to hold the position of home minister.
No need to spin further. Is the minister willing to provide safety fpr the opposition leaders in the same manner as is accorded to BN leaders like himself in the run-up to GE13?
Not only the Umno members, the police who allegedly harassed the family members at the wake for the PKR party headquarters staff member’s mother have no respect for the deceased.
How come paying solemn condolences for their member’s mother death can even start a fracas? Doesn’t Umno respect the sanctity of the occasion when one’s loved family member had passed away? the Malay culture but definitely Umno’s culture. Their violence reaction to the PKR entourage further confirms Umno’s arrogance and their inability to defend the state against the opposition onslaught in a proper political campaign.
Instead, this incident will boost PKR’s image in Johor and lead to the downfall of Umno in its own backyard It’s about time Umno-BN realises that the country belongs to the rakyat – it does not belong to Umno-BN. The rakyat will decide who they want to govern the country. The problem is that Umno-BN thinks that the country belongs to them. It seems like Umno is filled with hooligans, emotional women who know nothing but shout hysterics at the enemy and immature imbeciles who resort to violence.
PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution was right – it is not Malay culture and/or Islamic teaching to shout obscenities and harass people, especially when they are grieving over the loss of a loved one.
My message to these Umno goons is simple (since they can’t understand complicated concepts): How would you feel if other people treated you like that?
Your actions only serve to taint the image of Muslims and your own race. Violence and vandalism is never a solution to any problem.
In recent years, they have plundered the country’s wealth. When their dominance is threatened, they resort to violence to stay in power. They behave just like gangsters.
Even in war, sometimes there was a temporary ceasefire to remove the bodies from both sides – that is the ultimate respect for the dead. Is this the way Umno members behave, even to the extend of creating trouble for the deceased family?
In the eyes of all religions, including Islam, this is unforgivable.
Anwar and Pakatan leaders may just end up as new cabinet ministers, so they need to be protected.Excuse me, Mr Home Minister, I am a Johorean and I am not a ‘samseng’ (gangster). Do not attribute the gangsterism of your supporters to decent and innocent Johoreans like myself.
We are sick of this new culture of gangsterism and intimidation which you are condoning by your silence and inaction. Now we know who is the chief ‘samseng’ in our country and we are ashamed that you are a Johorean.
If a member of PKR gets seriously injured or even killed, is that a “political risk” which need not be investigated by the police? Did he imply that should he come into a Pakatan area and he gets pelted with stones, it is a political risk that he has to take and the police will not take action?Even if a single individual’s right is transgressed, it is the responsibility of the state to protect that individual.The Malaysian home minister foot-in-mouth minister should clarify which part of that statement was spun by Malaysiakini.is clearly not well-versed in making public statements. How the heck could he be a lawyer? In court, what you say is extremely important as it will affect the outcome of a case.a Why do you have to say “the position of the opposition in Johor cannot be guaranteed”? Did the opposition ask you for that guarantee? Taking into consideration Hishammuddin’s history of blurting out idiotic statements, I can assume Hishammuddin is looking for a scapegoat, in this case Malaysiakini, to blame in order to mask the bad publicity his statement is generating.Don’t be an oxymoron, Hishammuddin. You are answering when no such question was asked.nd while he is at it, he must also explain since when did Johoreans get to decide on safety and security matters? And since when did that responsibility get outsourced to the locals?To people denser than two short planks, Malaysiakini may have spun Home Minister Hishammuddin’s statements. To those who are even reasonably intelligent, Malaysiakini has not.
Granted, it is almost certainly a misquote – it is improbable that the home minister had given such a foolish answer to ridicule himself and the government.
All that is now required of the government is to seriously investigate all such political intimidation fairly to continue to remain relevant and be respected as the ministry responsible for law and order
NAJIB YOU MUST FINISH ANWAR AT ANY COST Poor Najib is in the pocket of ultra right-wing forces. they needs to use hang on to the power.
LET US WORK AS UNITY TEAM FOR FUTURE GENERATION
Mahathir’s take on the election results was revealing- he felt that the problem lay in the absence of a strong grassroots network which did not convert positive intention into delivered votes while Najib complained of there being too many leaders on the ground. In both cases, what is interesting is that the analysis is in effect a reiteration of a worldview that is pre-existing. What is in effect being said is that the top-down approach of the UMNO works just fine; the only hitch is that there is no one at the bottom to utilise that advantage. When it is said that there are too many leaders, the subtext is that the party has all the leaders it needs in the members of the family; what it lacks are committed followers who are able to convert charisma into votes.One would imagine that there is nothing more real or sobering than election results for nothing makes reality more naked than hard cold numbers. And yet, because it is so difficult to disaggregate election results and tease out different strands of influences at work, what tends to happen is that the results serve to reinforce existing positions rather than act as a wake-up call for the parties in question.One would imagine that there is nothing more real or sobering than election results for nothing makes reality more naked than hard cold numbers.

that it is impossible to remain neutral on a moving train and if I came across anyone advocating such nonsense, I would be the first in line to fire off a few salvos, but after 55 years of BN rule and a real shot at changing government, we seem to be stuck in the rut of holding political parties beyond criticism of any kind.
Besides, the last place one can claim “neutrality” is here in Malaysia because Umno has made it impossible for a certain section of the voting public to view the current ruling coalition as anything but power hungry plutocrats bent on retaining power at any cost.
The Companies Commission of Malaysia on orders from co-ordinated hands mahathir and his gangs.men working overtime meeting of 6 government agencies to investigate Suaram:.to plunge in the final sword and send Njib to Timbuktu “Whenever there is a complaint or a report which specifies suspicious activity, that is when we will investigate all matters in detail. It is not selective. If there is any suspicion, we will take action Najib cant possibly call GE within his term with the various scandals cropping up every so often! the work of mahathir and mahyuddin team Perhaps he could convene a parliament sitting to extend his term! Dont look at me like that! Malaysia Just look at the recent unrecogniseable right to peaceful assembly act hastily implemented! Also the 114A act to shut bloggers up An act that says you are guilty The onus is on you to prove your inncencence A 180 degree twist! The remedy is to remove the virus!Someone in UMNO CCM, MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission), Bank Negara, ROS (Registrar of Societies), the police and Home Ministry – are obviously conspiring to bring down is trying very hard to sabotage Najib. Going after Suaram is a sure sign that allegations surfacing in the French Scorpene investigation are real and damaging to Najib.
by hook or by crook.All of us, including the NGOs, must come out strongly to condemn such vindictive action by government agencies. They will come up with some obscure law to get rid of Najib It is the rule by law, instead of rule of law.Indeed,Mahathir and muhyuddin is using a sledgehammer to pound yet another nail into UMNO coffin.
This is the work of the Malaysian Talibans whose years of making easy money for doing nothing has now been disrupted
A successful liberal democracy has three elements, says Francis Fukuyama in his sparkling new book, The Origins of Political Order. It has a strong authority to allow quick and decisive action; a transparent rule of law to ensure the action is legitimate; and it is accountable to the people. Combining these three elements is not …Read more
Najib is making the same mistake to defend the decision not to review section 114A, similar to what he did when his deputy claimed he is Malay first, Malaysian second.His deputy went against what he had tweeted when he was away overseas. His leadership and command will be in jeopardy if he doesn’t put his foot down.Why did Najib instruct the cabinet to discuss the 114A in the wake of criticisms? But the cabinet which was chaired by DPM Muhyiddin Yassin decided not to review it. Did Najib get the message?
He approve Buttgate
We’ve all heard and read about those burger-selling protestors who staged a demonstration (no, not burger flipping) in front of the home of Ambiga Srineevasan, the co-chairperson of Bersih 3.0
Today, Malaysians awoke to read about another tragically hilarious demonstration in front of Ambiga’s home. This time by a group of retired soldiers or veterans as they would like to be known. This group of veterans chose a rather unique way of protesting against who they claim was someone who had smeared the nation’s good name . They brought along a few manila cards with some protest or other written in Malay. But their main thrust was to perform some sort of buttocks exercise. With butts facing Ambiga’s house of course.
I don’t know about you but I think this has to be the most sorry-assed (sorry!) demonstration of childishness I have seen so far since the reactions to Bersih 3.0 began.
Back in the 1960s Flannery O’Conner wrote a short story: “Everything That Rises Must Converge.” It had to do with generational insensitivity between a mother and son and between generations on the issue of race in society. In reading a recent piece by Tom Edsall (“The Lobbyist in the Gray Flannel Suit,”New York Times, May 14, 2012) this title came to mind in a totally different context. The context is the lobbying maze in Washington and the convergence of dozens of noxious weeds in the garden of government into a handful of giant predator thorn bushes now devouring that garden.
Of the handful, the largest by far is WPP (originally Wire and Plastic Products: is there a metaphor here?) with headquarters in London, over 150,000 employees in 2,500 offices spread around 107 countries. It, together with one or two conglomerating competitors, represents a fourth branch of government, vacuuming up former senators and House members, and their spouses and families, key committee staffs, former senior administration officials of both parties and several administrations, and ambassadors, diplomats, and retired senior military officers.
WPP has swallowed giant public relations, advertising, and lobbying outfits such as Hill+Knowlton and Burson-Marsteller, along with literally dozens of smaller members of the highly lucrative special interest and influence manipulation world. Close behind WPP is the Orwellian-named Omnicom and another converger vaguely called Intergroup. According to Mr. Edsall, WPP had billings last year of $72.3 billion, larger than the budgets of quite a number of countries.
With a budget so astronomical, think how much good WPP can do in the campaign finance arena, especially since Citizens United. The possibilities are almost limitless. Why pay for a senator or congresswoman here or there when you can buy an entire committee? Think of the banks that can be bailed out, the range of elaborate weapons systems to be purchased, the protection from Congressional scrutiny that can be paid for, the economic policies that can be manipulated.
This business is no longer about votes up or down on particular measures that may emerge in Congress or policies made in the White House. This is about setting agendas, deciding what should, and should not, be brought up for hearings and legislation. We have gone way beyond mere vote buying now. The converging Influence World represents nothing less than an unofficial but enormously powerful Fourth Branch of Government.
To whom is this branch of government accountable? Who sets the agenda for its rising army of influence mechanics? How easily will it be not only to go from office to lucrative lobby, but even more importantly from lucrative lobby to office? Where are its loyalties if it is manipulating and influencing governments around the world? Other than as a trough of money of gigantic proportions, how does it view the government of the United States?
Keep in mind: America’s Founders knew one thing. The republics of history all died when narrow interests overwhelmed the common good and the interests of the commonwealth.
O’Conner took her story title from a belief of the French Jesuit philosopher Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard believed that all good would rise and that all that rose would eventually converge. We pray that he was right.
But in the realm of 21st century American politics the opposite is surely coming true. Najib, you have unleashed your dogs and now they are embarrassing Malaysia in the eyes of the world. The whole world is watching this and you are responsible. You are embarrassing this country. I can’t believe you are doing this as PM. If you any self respect left, you’ll stop this right now.
All men are tempted. There is no man that lives that can’t be broken down, provided it is the right temptation, put in the right spot. Quite true for the world we live in.
All hail our army veterans. They only need their bottoms to defend the country from its enemies.
Today, I read in The Malaysian Insider that 10 retired soldiers “exercised” their bums this morning outside Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan’s Bukit Damansara home against the April 28 Bersih rally.
The members of the Malay Armed Forces Veterans Association (PVTM) did their “butt exercises” to protest against the Bersih chief for being an “enemy” of the nation, reports the news portal.
“We Armed Forces veterans have the right to protest against an ‘enemy’ who tried to smear the nation’s name,” said PVTM president Datuk Mohd Ali Baharom.
Of course, sir. Much obliged that despite your retirement, you are brave enough to take up arms to drop your pants in the face of the enemy.
As they say, if you can’t use your head, use your bottom. Well played, sir.
But this begs the question of the weapon of choice for the Malaysian Armed Forces.
If they can use their derrieres, why do we go out and buy French submarines, Polish tanks, American and Russian fighter jets and other pricey weaponry.
All we need for the country’s defence is the well-trained, muscled bottom of the pride and joy of the nation — the Malaysian soldier — to flex our bottoms at the enemies of the state.
No enemy can defeat us for they will quake in fear when mooned by the Malaysian soldier.
This Malaysian defence weapon could just be the update of US President John F. Kennedy’s famous line: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ass what you can do for your country.”
I’m sure their behaviour made many wonder if that is what they would do or rather being trained to do when facing enemies in battlefield? Any Defence Minister or PM with just an iota of dignity would have to die of shame to have had led a bunch of such baboons in his ministry!this is the product of mahathirs spoon fed race, old farts and thugs. lowest form of intellect, even retarded monkeys are better than these pathetic fools! i pity their generation
fair Dinkum- What ill repute showered on the the Army by this bunch of immature , disgraceful idiots, with the lowest IQ. Luckily they are retired ( retarded?). Just imagine if they are still serving. Instead of fighting these imberciles would be showing their butts to their enemies, and you know what ? Some smartalec is going to shove a bayonete up theirs. I just can’t imagine mature people in their forties and fifties resorting to this kind of stupid behaviour.The type of mentality condoned and nurtured by UMNO
What a bunch of bodoh, infantile, imbecile and idiotic rascals who claim to be army veterans ‘butting’ in front of Ambiga’s residence ! Their brains,if any,are right at their butts.A damn disgrace to King and country by their atrocious antics.BN leaders, do you condone such an act? Your silence is deafening !
Don’t play play can’t stand seeing those guys shake their butt. All. The first thing that comes to his mind is ‘liwat’. Typical UMNO pervert.
These army veterans really needs exercise. Look at their fat butts…Almost the same size as Fat-mama’s. When you have a menteri bodoh like Zahid as the defense minister, the end results are what we see in these butts. These veterans have been using their butt to think all this while. And I wonder how Malaysians will be defended in case of a war. I guess all the army clowns will use their butts to defend our country. This act is clearly a disgrace to our King as he is the Commander in Chief. Such shame. Remove the word ‘royal’ from the army.This is nothing. You can even hold a mock funeral in front of somebody’s house and the police won’t interfere. Provided that somebody is from the opposition of course.
What a Fucking… disgrace! Such arseholes! With shit in their brains! Army Veterans..Ughh…such a disgrace! from 1 Photos of Federal Minister’s son cavorting with semi- naked women and drinking alcohol have been scattered throughout the internet. His deeds come under the Khalwat and Haram offences but he has not been investigated. On the other hand Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the leader of the opposition is being mercilessly hounded for an unfounded accusation of sexual impropriety… In another context respected lawyer Sivarasa has said that uneven – handed enforcement of the law by the Police may cause disgruntled citizens to seek private redress.The Pariah deserves our ultimate strictures. John Adams’ principle, ‘A government of laws not of men’ is explained in Yahoo Answers:”It means that laws are to be interpreted objectively, not reread by individuals and are to be applied to everyone without regard for their positions, reputations or personal relationships with others. A government of men, on the other hand, would be one that is subjective, depending on the relationship of those enforcing the laws and those against whom the laws might be enforced.” Respect for the Law is diminishing among Malaysians generally. Ad hoc pronouncements of what the law is by UMNO bigwigs and their hangers–on — often by people with little or no legal training — have contributed to this state of affairs. One should not be surprised to find a large portion of caprice in these pronouncements. More ominous is the selective application of the law… State sponsered gangsterism complete with police protection for the gangsters. These people are inciting hatered towards Ambiga, soon some others as a result of the incitement may take the law into their own hands and cause harm to Ambiga. If anyhting happens to Ambiga now or in the future then BN and the police are responsible.
Total disgrace to the country…an ex soilder would not do this…we know they belong to which group…Shame on you. Malukan bangsa dan negara.These EX CONMAN of MALAYSIA are a disgrace to Malaysia and its international image. These BUTT – LERS and BURGER – LARS of last week are the PIMPS OF UMNO while PDRM relishes and enjoys the sideshow by these freaks. With all this our dumb KING can’t even open his GOP to speak out in support of this one true citizen who is truly courageous. I can hear the DUMNO empire shuddering.
Make love to me nice and slow.Make me pour out to you all my heart and soul.
Make love to me,make it sensually last.We got all night so don’t go to fast.
Make love to me, stoke my body with your finger’s,go up and down.We don’t need no music.Our moaning will be the sound.
Make love to me,make my body tremble from head to toe.Tomorrow my family and friend’s will see me glow.
Make love to me, make me feel that burning fire. And you shall become my forever one true desire.
Make love to me without making me feel insecure and used.With you i don’t wanna feel emotionally confused.
Make love to me, and after we’re done,lay down close to me, hold me tight.It’s OK you can spend the night.
Another negative entry into UMNO’s and police ledger! When these negative entries are totalled up, UMNO and Barisan will be history! Ambiga just endure a little while longer, it won’t be long now and change will come to pass! Sad state our army veterans are in. This is what happens when one gets hit in the head to often during one’s service for the country. Medical studies have shown that if a person get hit in his head to often, brain injuries are bound to happen. Butt exercises preformed by these Army veterans in front of Ambiga’s house shows that these veterans lack insight, no aversion to look foolish in public, and easily swayed by ideas imposed unto them by others. Thus this only proves my point on the poor mental state of our ex- army personals. I hope that the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Health take a good look into the mental and general health of our army veterans and ensure that the get the required medical care
As usual, these UMNO-linked intelligent beings are all class. Islam !! Islam tunjuk pungkuk kat orang..? dulu Penaga Assemblyman Azhar tunjuk pungkuk dalam DUN dan sekarang askar islam pencen pula. Kalau nak duit pencen + bonus lebih, minta lah, tak payah nak bodek tunjuk pungkuk. Ajaran Islam tunjuk pungkuk kah ?The calibre and mettle of the ruling govt is up for public display. No intelligent debate is possible in Malaysia currently; only might is right. It is time the well-meaning, hardworking citizens of Malaysia take stock of the situation and ask themselves: How long are we going to allow such thugs to run the country? Is this the sort of country we want for ourselves and our families? How long are we going to allow our tax dollars to be spent on this bankruptcy of intelligence and patriotism that is the current govt? They threatening and give her ‘Amaran’ … was aired over NTV7… The police can’t do anythingis this what they teach in the army, showing butts instead of how to fight to defend against foreign armies…to bully against a fellow defenceless Malaysian woman rather than stand up against foreign armies. I suppose this shows the capability and strength of Malaysian army…sigh…all the money for arms ..billions of them just to show their butt at a lady This is clearly the result of Najib’s transformation. Stripped of the decency that characterizes normal human beings, these scumbags have actually spotlighted the organ they regularly use to think up their schemes. I am sure all retired personnel from the uniformed forces are proud of this spectacular display of imbecility. Hip, hip hurray!
Life is the journey to the destination
Tennis legend, Martina Navratilova once said, “the moment of victory is much too short to live for that and nothing else.” We are often told that the journey is more important than the destination, but so many of us are in such a bloody rush to get to winning post, that it’s often a costly exercise. Whenever I see people with permanently etched frowns, run ragged with exhaustion, constantly irritable with those around, or frequently riddled with health issues due to lowered immunities and stress having taking its toll I wonder whether the satisfaction of the moment of victory will be worth all of it and if they will spend as much time basking in it as they did to achieve it. But that rarely happens, because barely do we reach our goals without immediately getting another one. A particular toy, a cycle, a motorbike, a small car, then a bigger car, then a luxury car, perhaps two… a job, a better job, better company, higher position… a flat of your own to rent, then one to buy, then a bigger one, then a better neighbourhood and building, a villa, perhaps a farm house…. we set non-stop new goals, and are slave driven by them. Nothing wrong having goals and a purpose that may give you a sense of self worth, but was it worth losing out on living life itself? Ask yourself if reaching the last goalpost was worthy of what it cost you personally or was it one that entailed a journey who’s stress outlived, outshone and took a toll on you, your health and your loved ones. Life is what passes you by while you’re making plans. Carpe diem! Seize the moment! Enjoy today, make it special, and make it fun and memorable, because this very moment is what the beautiful journey of life is all about.
I am 31 and am still single. sometimes I feel quite desperate – I recently had sex in the lift with the liftman. He has a great body so i have no regrets. There have been other flings like this quite often. Am I turning into a nymphomaniac?
While it’s okay to have sex without attachment, it’s also necessary to assess your indiscriminate patterns. If it’s anonymity you seek, the liftman who will brag to the watchmen and other drivers in your building is certainly not your best bet. If it’s just sex you crave, make sure you’re well protected from disease and physical harm. There are a lot of weird people out there. If you yearn for a relationship, you need to focus on finding a good man. There are many dating sites on the internet you can scour for potential suitors. It doesn’t hurt to visit a therapist if you feel your hormones have taken over your head and heart.
My best friend is a very attractive girl. We are in our late twenties and work in an advertising company. we are too all time together and one day we got drunk and made out. Now i feel very awkward. Should i stop seeing her?
Best friends make for the best relationships. However, if you feel differently about it and choose to not take the relationship to the next level then talk to her openly. After all, she’s your best friend and you should be able to discuss all your dilemmas with her. One night of drunken revelry cannot break a strong friendship!
Nobody can protect you better than yourself! Trust your instincts and fight back!
It is a sad reflection on our society that women feel unsafe and unprotected not just on deserted roads and car parks, but even in their own homes. Young lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha was attacked and killed by her watchman in what should be the most secure place — her own bedroom! Pallavi’s case has shaken the confidence of the bravest of girls. In the aftermath of the horrific news, a single friend asked in distress, “Does that mean we cannot trust any man?”
I hate to say this, but yes, it does seem like it. Better safe than sorry… or worse. When work and lifestyles dictate that women need to travel alone, live alone and commute alone, how does a woman ensure her own safety?
I think it is important to be prepared for the worst. However dire this may sound, the only way to defend yourself is to take measures against the worst that can happen. Most girls are caught unprepared. Make a note of your most vulnerable moments when you can be overpowered and guard against those.
Trust your womanly instincts about people and situations. Be alert to your surroundings and aware of the first signs of danger. If you feel someone is following you, step into a crowded place. Call a friend or relative to escort you back.
As you get into or out of your car, watch out for anyone lurking around or a single man in the car parked next to yours. Run back to safety if you are suspicious. Always walk confidently, don’t look lost. It is proven that criminals target the lost, scared-looking women. I read advice from a cop that said even if the assailant has a gun, try and get away; there is only 4 in 100 chance that he will be able to get a hit!
Feed in the police control room number or 100 into your speed dial. Also have a friend or relative on speed dial. When in vulnerable spots, keep a pepper spray handy. Spray it into the eyes of an assailant. A perfume bottle or hairspray are good alternatives. Supreme Court lawyer Shilpi Jain urges single women to learn self-defence techniques and apply for licenced pistols, to keep in touch with neighbours and call the police patrol at the first sign of danger. “The law is clear that in self-defence you can attack anybody though you must not harm them more than necessary.”
Politeness could be your undoing. Never open the door to a stranger when alone nor stop to help another in a deserted area. Call the cops instead. When a mechanic or plumber is due home for work, request a neighbour or friend to be present.
Door keys should never be left in obvious places. Once inside, do not leave them next to the main door. This is the mistake Pallavi made. Dress appropriately, as per occasion. Clothes that may seem appropriate inside a bar will look provocative when alone in a deserted area.
Remember we live in a world of sharp contrasts — the haves and the have-nots, the educated and the uneducated, the cultured and the uncultured. To flash wealth or flesh, or to be perceived to be free with your favours, is to tip the balance, and invite trouble!
This was the headline of the NY Times‘ “Room for Debate” section in the wake of the attack that killed the US Ambassador to Libya in Benghazi. Not “Is Arming an Insurgency that Includes Anti-American Jihadis Who Will Unquestionably Wind Up Attacking You a Good Idea?” Not “Does Continuing to Support Undemocratic Monarchs and Dictators in a Region Where People Already Are Angry at US for Decades of Doing So Complicate Diplomacy?”
