Calls for calm and forgiveness

Ida Bakar: Dear Hindus of Malaysia, In the absence of an outright apology from Malay-Muslim leadership, please allow me to apologise for this unforgivable action. What these people have done have nothing to do with Islam or the Malays. They have brought shame onto my religion in this holy month of Ramadan. Dear syariah judges, these miscreants have acted against Islam - by insulting the Hindu religion and by not respecting the the dead cow (one of Allah's many beautiful creations). Surely this is a crime worse than three glasses of beer.

Muslim true and true: Dear all, please don't associate the remaining 99-9% Muslims in this country who are responsible and tolerant towards other religious beliefs with this incident. These hooligans don't represent all of us.

Kss: Our police, who are extremely efficient in breaking up small gatherings of people holding candles, seem to have closed both their eyes to this highly provocative incident.

Malaysian Chinese Association: A sad day indeed for Malaysia just when we are in the Merdeka month. Looks to me like someone who is obsessed with power wants to create chaos, and here are a bunch of stupid protestors who probably don't realise the kind of legacy they are leaving to all our children.

Amir H: As a Muslim, I am ashamed at the behaviour of these hoodlums especially during the holy month of Ramadhan. I really wonder who the head honchos are behind this unscrupulous act. The protestors have been swayed off course from the true teachings of Islam. I dare say this is not the true reflection of the majority of Malay-Muslims in this country. Very sad indeed.


Haha: Action Commitee Chair' Mahyuddin Manaf said :'we will not budge an inch. Even if lives are lost and blood made to flow we will defend section 23 from having a temple built there'. These are very threatening words and should not be taken lightly . These are words uttered just like 'terrorists' would and we have these people in Malaysia. I wonder what made some people in our country so stupid and so extreme. Let's see if action is being taken immediately or if a mere caution is given.

Arrest Khir Toyo. Teach him that GOD is very angry with him. He will suffer in this world. We will never forgive him for all the evil things he have done to the Hindu community in Selangor. I will continue to curse and pray that this evil person sees hell in earth.

Today, a Friday in the month of Ramadan, when some barbarians did what they did in Shah Alam, they not only insulted their fellow citizens of the Hindu faith but they desecrated their own religion as well. Because it is obvious they have disobeyed God's orders in the Quran.

All right-thinking people of every race, religion and creed should be enraged. Is this what we will remember our 52nd Merdeka by?

Cops say sorry, promise prompt action

The police have apologised for not taking prompt action during the 'cow head' protest that took place in Shah Alam yesterday, said Selangor exco member Dr Xavier Jeyakumar.

He said Shah Alam district police chief Noor Azam Jamaluddin conveyed his apology to several Pakatan Rakyat leaders during a meeting this morning.

The police chief explained that the officer at the scene was a 'junior' (suggesting that he was inexperienced in handling such matters).

"So Noor Azam has given us his word that action will be taken immediately against those responsible (for the protest)," said Jeyakumar, who overseas non-Muslim affairs in the state.

He also revealed that numerous police reports have been filed over the incident.

"Many of the (reports) are by NGOs, councillors, PAS Youth, PKR Youth and some individuals," he said.

The half-hour meeting was held at the Shah Alam police district headquarters and was attended by DAP MP Charles Santiago and state exco Ronnie Liu as well.

Yesterday, some 50 residents enraged with the proposed relocation of a Hindu temple to their area staged a noisy protest with a severed cow's head.

The residents who gathered after the Friday prayers, placed the head outside the gates of the state secretariat building for a short period before removing it.

Temple demo: Residents march with cow's head




*****************

Before dispersing, several protesters spat and stomped on the cow's head. The cow is considered sacred among Hindus.

Addressing the crowd, Section 23 action committee deputy chair Ibrahim Sabri said: "If there is blood, you (the state government) will be responsible if you are adamant about building the temple."

"This is a warning. Relocate the temple to Section 22. This cow is a present to the state government. This is a gift from us," he added.

The protesters also carried several banners which among others read 'Take Beer' (mocking PAS' rallying cry of 'Takbir') and 'Illegal temples are very small, but once relocated, they are as big as Putrajaya'.

The crowd gathered for about 15 minutes at the main entrance of the state secretariat building under the watch of more than a dozen police personnel.

seals: "under the watch of more than a dozen police personnel." ?? So police gave protection????

****************************


Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is outraged over this afternoon's 'cow head' protest in Shah Alam, said Human Resources Minister Dr S Subramaniam.

The MIC secretary-general told Malaysiakini that Najib had conveyed his disappointment when he telephoned him regarding the incident.

"The prime minister was very upset. He promised to look into the problem and nip it in the bud," he said.

"Some 15 minutes later, the prime minister called back and said that he had spoken to Inspector-General of Police (Musa Hassan) and instructed him to take immediate action," he added.

In a statement earlier, Subramaniam said incidents such as these hinder the 1Malaysia concept being promoted by the premier and serve to only 'turn back the clock'.

After performing their Friday prayers, some 50 angry residents from Section 23 in Shah Alam marched with the cow's head to protest against the relocation of a Hindu temple to their area.

The protesters had marched from the state mosque to the state secretariat building.

"The group took their protest to the extreme by bringing a severed cow's head which clearly is a sign of disrespect to the Hindu community," Subramaniam said.

"It has emotionally angered the Hindus and if it is not controlled from the beginning, it may create unnecessary racial tension," he warned.

Samy Vellu: This is intolerable

Meanwhile, Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy called the protest a "disgraceful" act.

"It was very uncivilised and brutish...and the group had just come after attending their (Friday) prayers," the DAP leader said.

Also seeing red over the incident was MIC president S Samy Vellu, who called it an "intolerable" act carried out by an "extremist group."

"The cow is a sacred animal of the Hindus, and for this group to resort to such action, is intolerable and tantamount to challenging the freedom of religion as enshrined in the Malaysian constitution.

"It is the right of Malaysians of any faith, including Hindus to build temples and other places of worships. I am very sad that this group had paraded the cow's head on their way to the state secretariat building," he said in a statement.

"We must not allow anyone to challenge or ridicule any religion in this country. I am worried that this action may lead to retaliation from the Hindu community. However, I wish to urge the Hindus especially to be calm and let the authorities deal with it," he added.

Samy Vellu called on the government and the police to take action against the organisers of this protest.

They must be punished according to the law for endangering racial harmony in this country, he added.

'Charge them in court'

MIC Youth was also appalled and expressed shock over the protest.

"It is a very shameful and disgraceful act and they do not seem to have any feelings for the sentiments of the Hindu community," said the wing's chief T Mohan.

"We strongly condemn their actions and call on the authorities to take immediate action. There are proper channels to express one's views but ridiculing the Hindu religion reflects the shallow minds of the protesters," he added.

Malaysian Indian United Party president S Nallakaruppan also similarly condemned the act.

"I fear that this kind of intolerance and act of stupidity will only cause more rift among the Malaysians. This is a bad move by the villagers," he said.

Human Rights Party leader P Uthayakumar was disappointed that the police did not arrest those involved in the protest.

He said the Attorney-General's Chambers should initiate criminal proceedings and charge them under Sections 298 and 298 (A) of the Penal Code read together with Article 11 of the Federal Constitution.

Section 298 concerns the offence of uttering words etc with the deliberate intent to wound religious feelings while Section 298 (A) is related to the offence of causing disharmony.

Makkal Sakthi Party president S Thanendran also condemned the protest as a "barbaric" act.

He urged the Selangor government as well as the police not to tolerate this sort of behaviour and to take stern action against the protesters.

"How can a temple disturb the peace of these people?

"Things can become really ugly if we start raising other questions," he said.

Confirmed: Indian Studies Department downgraded

University Malaya vice chancellor Ghauth Jasmon confirmed the Indian Studies Department (ISD) will be now known as the Indian and South Asian Studies Department.

The announcement was in stark contrast to assurances by Ghauth just days ago that the department will be preserved in its original form and its name maintained.

"We will maintain the programmes but the name change is to give the department wider scope," said Ghauth (right).

The ISD was established in 1956 under the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in University Malaya.

A controversy arose when department head S Kumaran, who retired, was replaced with Mohd Raduan Ariff, the first man not of Indian origin to head the department.

Subsequently there was another uproar in the community when word leaked out that ISD is to be replaced with a South Asian Studies Department.

Programmes to go on

Current Arts and Social Sciences Faculty dean, Redzuan Othman, said there would be no change in the programmes as there are many students studying in the ISD.

He also said the academic staff of the ISD and two lecturers - Jatswan Singh Sidhu and Azharuddin Mohamed Dali met in July to discuss ways to improve and expand the ISD.

Jatswan is a lecturer at the International & Strategic Studies Department specialising in South Asia while Azharuddin's expertise is in South Asian history.

Ghauth said Mohd Raduan Ariff of Southeast Asian Studies Department, the acting head of ISD, has been given three months to resolve issues involving academic staff.

He said they are looking for a suitable candidate to head the new department and that the process could take some time.

When asked on the possible negative backlash from the public over the formation of the new department, Ghauth said that he was ready to face his critics.

"I'm prepared to face the consequences. I do not think there will be any serious consequences," was his parting shot.

seals: Is this not an insult to Malaysian Indians? I will see this as a strategic move to break the department and its studies and the research into what they will call as "South Asian Studies". This will surely break up the direction to maintain the "Indian Studies". I can see this is the clear direction and strategy for this change and replacing the head. I feel insulted and ignored.

What happen to MIC who are suppose to take this up? Should the Indians turn to HINDRAF? I can see this as another attempt to kill the culture after they fail to change the Guru Besar of Tamil schools.

UM ISD delivered many success towards Indians in Malaysia, one of it is SMC (Sri Murugan Center).

Are we gonna be a sitting duck again? Will not MIC make their demands and set it right and replace the HOD?

DPM says wind of change blowing in Permatang Pasir

Barisan Nasional deputy chairperson Muhyiddin Yassin claimed that a wind of change is blowing across the Permatang Pasir constituency on polling day favouring the federal ruling coalition.

Based on grassroots feedback accumulated during his tour across the constituency today, he could sense that there was an inclination in the people's mood leaning towards BN.

"Perhaps there is a wind of change blowing in the constituency . . . the people's mood is not the same as in during the Permatang Pauh by-elections and general elections (both last year).

"Our ground election leaders and workers have informed me that many voters were responsive towards us.

"They seem to want to help us to win this contest," the deputy premier told a press conference at Seberang Jaya at noon.

When asked to rate BN candidate Rohaizat Othman's chances of winning, he said he was optimistic but declined to comment whether the coalition could wrest the seat from PAS.

"It's difficult to predict.

"We will know in a few hours time . . . need not rush.

Ex-GRO gets RM100,000 for Rela man's frolic

PUTRAJAYA: The government has to pay RM100,000 in damages to a former guest relations officer as it was vicariously liable for the act of a Rela member who took a picture of her relieving herself in a lorry.

In allowing the appeal by Maslinda Ishak, the Court of Appeal yesterday said the respondents -- the director-general of Rela, the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department's (Jawi) enforcement officers and the government -- were jointly and severally liable.

On Sept 11 last year, the High Court ordered Mohamad Tahir Osman to pay Maslinda RM100,000 for his conduct in taking the picture six years ago.

Judge Datuk Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat said what Tahir did was outside the scope of his duty and he did it purely on his own accord.


Therefore, he was wholly responsible for his action on Maslinda, 32, now a dental nurse, which had injured her emotionally.

The incident happened after Maslinda and several colleagues were arrested by Jawi enforcement officers and Rela members during a raid at Kelab De Vegas, Jalan Imbi, here about 11.30pm on March 21, 2003.

After the arrest, they were led into a lorry. At 12.50am, when the vehicle was in Jalan Jejaka 5, Taman Maluri, Cheras, Maslinda asked to go to the toilet but her request was denied.

Instead, Maslinda was told to relieve herself inside the lorry.

She did exactly that, shielded by a scarf held by her friends, but Tahir then came, pushed her friends away and took her photograph with his camera.

Maslinda brought a RM5 million suit in damages against Tahir, the Rela director-general, Jawi and government.

Tengku Maimun ruled that the Rela director-general, Jawi and the Federal Government could not be associated with Tahir's action.

Maslinda appealed on ground that the other three were also equally liable to pay damages.

Lawyer Karpal Singh, who was assisted by Sangeet Kaur Deo, told the Court of Appeal that Tahir's act was done in the course of employment and the three respondents were equally liable.

He said Tahir did not appeal against the High Court order, that he was "a man of straw" and Maslinda could not get any compensation from him.

"Tahir had also pleaded guilty for invasion of privacy and was sentenced to four months' jail in a magistrate's court," he said.

Federal Counsel Amarjeet Singh said what was done by Tahir was a frolic of his own.

"He was not authorised by the three respondents. So the government cannot be held liable," he said.

Judges Datuk Suriyadi Halim Omar, Datuk Feffey Tan Kok Hwa and Datuk Sulaiman Daud heard the appeal and made the unanimous ruling.

Karpal later said he would enforce the judgment on the government since the respondents were all from federal agencies.

Tapak Kuil Seksyen 23 Shah Alam

Baru-baru ini, banyak betul yang kita dengar berhubung isu tapak kuil yang dicadangkan di Seksyen 23, Shah Alam. Yang tahu, yang tak tahu dan yang buat-buat tahu, semuanya turut sama mengemukakan pandangan masing-masing. Di antaranya, pandangan Noh Omar yang menyatakan bagaimana kerajaan PR tidak peka terhadap sensitiviti umat Islam.

Oleh itu, bagi mereka yang ingin tahu, izinkan saya menceritakan serba sedikit perkara sebenar berkenaan isu ini. Tapak Kuil yang dicadangkan adalah di kawasan Industri, lebih 200 meter dari kawasan perumahan. Sebuah Kuil yang sekarang ini berada di Seksyen 19 akan dipindahkan ke tapak baru yang dicadangkan ini. Di Seksyen 19, kuil berkenaan hanya berjarak 20 kaki dari kawasan perumahan! Buka pintu rumah, seberang jalan terdapat kuil.

Sebenarnya, kuil Seksyen 19 telah berada di situ sejak zaman sebelum wujudnya Shah Alam lagi. Pada masa itu kawasan di mana kuil tersebut dibina dinamakan Ladang Sungai Renggam. Apabila PKNS ambil-alih, maka dijadikan kawasan perumahan. Semasa membina dan menjual rumah-rumah di Seksyen 19, PKNS tidak menunjukkan kuil tersebut di dalam pelan mereka. Sebaliknya yang ditunjuk adalah rumah-rumah teres dua tingkat.

Maka, para pembeli rumah sekitar kuil tersebut, 80% dari mereka yang merupakan orang Melayu Islam pun terperanjatlah apabila berpindah ke rumah baru mereka dan mendapati kuil masih berada di situ. Sedangkan mereka diberitahu bahawa kuil tersebut akan dipindahkan. Malangnya, PKNS di bawah pemerintahan Kerajaan Negeri UMNO/BN, tidak menunaikan janji mereka dan tidak juga bertanggung-jawab dalam soal ini. Kalau diusahakan pada ketika itu, masih terdapat banyak kawasan lapang, maka perancangan yang lebih sesuai dan tepat dapat dilaksanakan.

Seperti yang diduga dan sepertimana biasa, kerajaan BN tidak melakukan apa-apa. Penduduk terpaksa bersabar selama 26 tahun, menagih janji dari PKNS dan kerajaan BN Selangor, sehinggalah naiknya kerajaan PR. Kami mengusahakan dengan serius dan bersungguh-sungguh sehingga terhasilnya cadangan kuil Seksyen 19 dipindahkan ke Seksyen 23.

Sepatutnya Noh Omar mencerminkan diri sebelum mengeluarkan pendapatnya. Takut-takut meludah ke langit, terjatuh ke muka sendiri. Siap dengan kahak lagi! Sekiranya tapak di Seksyen 23 mahu dikatakan tidak peka dan tidak sensitif, kedudukan di Seksyen 19 mahu dipanggil apa? Mendera? Menyeksa? ataupun derhaka?

Kalau ikut kehendak masyarakat Hindu yang juga merupakan rakyat negeri ini, mereka ingin kuil tersebut kekal sahaja di situ. “Inilah tapak asal kami, sepatutnya PKNS mengambil kira kehadiran kuil kami di sini semasa merancang pembangunan kawasan Shah Alam”, kata mereka. Tetapi apa boleh buat, nasi sudah pun menjadi bubur, mereka amat menyesal mengundi BN sejak dari dulu lagi. Akhirnya hasil perbincangan yang waras, mereka sanggup bertolak ansur. Sanggup berpindah, asalkan tidak terlalu jauh. Kuil ini dikunjungi penganut Hindu dari Seksyen 19, 20 dan 23.

Oleh itu, PKNS ditugaskan untuk mencari tempat yang sesuai. Tapak yang dicadangkan adalah seperti yang dinyatakan. Cadangan dikemukakan kepada MBSA dan seterusnya kepada Exco kerajaan Negeri. Semua menganggap ianya sesuai dan masalah di Seksyen 19 di mana suasana diperhangatkan oleh NGO Melayu/UMNO seperti Pewaris, perlu diselesaikan dengan segera.

Ini yang perlu kita perlu fahami. Tapak di Seksyen 23 bukan untuk kuil baru. Ianya adalah untuk memindahkan kuil yang sedia ada di Seksyen 19. Kedudukannya tidak terlalu hampir dengan kawasan perumahan, di mana terdapat Dewan orang ramai dan juga sebuah padang permainan di antara tapak kuil tersebut dengan kawasan perumahan. Ianya merupakan kawasan Industri. Kalau kilang boleh diletakkan di situ tanpa sebarang bantahan dari penduduk, mengapa tidak kuil? Sedangkan jarak kawasan Industri dari perumahan sudah mengambil kira terlebih dahulu semua aspek yang wajar dipertimbangkan.

Saya faham ada yang ingin mempolitikkan isu ini. Memang suku sakat Ketua Bahagian UMNO duduk di situ. Saya rasa Najib kena ‘mendidik’ ahli UMNO. Kikis semangat perkauman yang sempit yang diasaskan selama ini. Adakah beliau mampu lakukannya? Adakah beliau ingin lakukannya? Najib ke Batu Caves dengan begitu gah ceria, 1Malaysia katanya. Kita ingin lihat sejauh mana falsafah Najib difahami ahli partinya sendiri atau ianya semua hanya satu sandiwara untuk mengaburi mata rakyat?

Seorang penduduk Seksyen 23 memberitahu saya, “Jangan layan sangat YB, puak-puak ini, bukan sekadar kuil mereka bantah. Buat kuliyyah di Surau pun mereka bantah juga”.

Penamaan Calon Permatang Pasir; Gobala DiKasari Polis



Video footage of Padang Serai MP Gobalakrishnan being arrested and handcuffed this morning during the nomination process for the Permatang Pasir by-election.

Does the statement below match the news below?

Padang Serai rep is uncouth, says Hishammuddin

KUALA TERENGGANU: The behaviour of Padang Serai MP N. Gobala-krishnan, who got into a scuffle with a policeman during the Permatang Pasir by-election nomination on Monday was unacceptable and uncouth, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

“I am very angry and ashamed with the behaviour of someone who is a parliamentarian.

“His despicable conduct has tainted the image of the Parlia-ment.

“I will ask the Attorney-General to speed up the prosecution case against Gobalakrishnan,” Hishammuddin told reporters after chairing the state Umno liaison committee meeting here yesterday.

He said it was unbecoming of a parliamentarian to rough up a police officer who was carrying out his duties to restore order during the nomination.

Gobalakrishnan had allegedly shouted offensive remarks and

was involved in a fight with a policeman. Both of them were injured.

Hishammuddin said the opposition MP had tried to gain political mileage by shifting the public’s attention to police brutality.

“This is an irresponsible act and it is hard for us to pardon him,” he said.

Hishammuddin praised Penang police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Yakoob for not reacting emotionally during the commotion and in ensuring that his officers executed their duties diligently.

Meanwhile, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said Gobalakrishnan must be prosecuted for obstructing the police from carrying out their duties.

'Tainted candidate should not contest'

A day into the Permatang Pasir by-election campaign, Pakatan Rakyat leaders have wasted no time in launching an attack on the credentials of Barisan Nasional candidate Rohaizat Othman.

This follows the Bar Council's clarification that Rohaizat was struck off the rolls in March last year due to professional misconduct. The complaint involved misappropriation of some RM161,000 in a property transaction that was aborted.

At a press conference in Permatang Pasir today, PAS vice-president Mahfuz Omar seized the initiative to call on Rohaizat to withdraw gracefully from the by-election.

“This is not a personal attack. Truth is Rohaizat has lost his moral credibility to contest the by-election. He should withdraw gracefully to avoid further exposure on this matter,” said Mahfuz, who is heading the PAS by-election campaign.

He said the Bar's disclosure raises the question if Rohaizat can be entrusted to manage large sums of money on behalf of the state seat in Penang, should he win the by-election.

Weak MACC needs imported players

I refer to the Malaysiakini report 'Liu's aide injured in scuffle with MACC officers'. MACC never learns. Yes, never will.

I am aghast at the rate of the investigation conducted on the fledgling Pakatan Rakyat state government. If we were to add all the investigations on the said government thus far, I will not be surprised if it added up to be more than all investigations involving BN states in the last 10 years.

Not only the number of investigations on Pakatan representatives alarming, the MACC officers seemed to be extra enthusiastic and super efficient when it comes to Pakatan excos or members.
Their action is commendable. But it would be even more if they can do likewise to BN. Sadly it has been otherwise.

Glaring examples like politicians owning palatial homes did not raise the eyebrows of the MACC Neither did the billions lost in PKFZ. It did not sense any abuse of power in Lingam's tape scandal.

Can the MACC chief explain all these fiascos?

My gut feeling is that officers assigned to those cases are not enthusiastic since big guns are involved. Maybe they are incompetent in their jobs. If these were the reasons, MACC should be revamped. The whole team of MACC staff, from top to bottom should be asked to leave.Yes, they have to do so that our country can prosper. Corruption is the scourge of the nation. Public fund is siphoned to enrich the powers that be and thereby denying benefits which the said fund could bring to the public.

More importantly, a clean nation will be a big boost to FDI to our country. I need not have to explain why. Our southern neighbour is a shining example of how she could prosper without corruption.

I suspect that the present MACC team is incompetent. Just like how football teams import foreign players and managers to shore up their strength, we can do the same for MACC .

We can employ retired anti-corruption officers from Hong Kong and Singapore to replace the officers. Nevermind if they have to be paid big salaries. At the end of the day we will reap bigger dividends, less public fund is stolen and FDI will increase many folds.

Just like the police who are more interested in arresting people wearing black shirts or lighting candles instead of arresting Mat Rempit and snatch thieves, MACC behaves in the same way too.

Why Malaysian Government insists on using English for IT term?

Why Malaysian Government insists on using English for IT term?

This is because the whole world uses the language as an information and/or technology language. How dangerous it will be if we try to use Bahasa, especially in school. See example below:-


Hardware = barangkeras
Software = baranglembut
Joystick = batang gembira
Plug and Play = cucuk dan main
Port = lubang
Server = pelayan
Client = pelanggan



Try to translate this:
ENGLISH:

That server gives a plug and play service to the client using either hardware or software joystick. The joystick goes into the port of the client.

Now in BAHASA:

Pelayan itu memberi pelanggannya layanan cucuk dan main dengan menggunakan batang gembira jenis keras atau lembut. Batang gembira itu akan dimasukkan ke dalam lubang pelanggan..

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby
English will be the official language of the European Union rather
than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that
English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-
year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English" .

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will
make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in
favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have
one less letter. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond
year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will
make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted
to reach the stage where! more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have
always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag
is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as
replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords
