Muhyiddin says PAS dividing Muslims amid ‘Amanat Hadi’ furore.... UMNO already depleted capital .... old issue rise again .... Memali case years ago what story....

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today accused PAS of attempting to divide the country’s Muslims through religion, saying it was aimed at creating conflict meant to win support for the opposition Islamist party.
The Umno deputy president said the country’s 60 per cent Malay-Muslim majority are now split into irreconcilable factions following “perverted fatwas” issued by PAS, which usually carry staunch anti-Barisan Nasional (BN) messages.

Calling it “deviations”, Muhyiddin said these edicts clearly carried divisive elements that go against the ideas of Islam, a religion that strongly promotes unity.

The deputy prime minister cited as an example the ongoing debate over PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s famous 1981 speech dubbed “Amanat Haji Hadi (Hadi’s Message)” calling for the destruction of the ruling party Umno, which he branded as infidels.

“There are quarters who are dividing our ummah (people), issuing many kinds of fatwas that is aimed to sow hatred and creates conflict among us,” he said at a working visit after performing Friday prayers at the Al-Mukhsin Mosque here.

“We know about that. Its widely spread over the media... it is creating a lot of [fractures] among us,” Muhyiddin said.

The “Amanat Haji Hadi” had drawn objections from various quarters, including former PAS members, who called on Abdul Hadi to withdraw it for the sake of the unity of the Malays and Muslims.

Abdul Hadi dismissed claims that he had remained silent because he was afraid, but said he would only state his stand of whether to defend or withdraw the message if he was allowed to go on air.

Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, in defence of Abdul Hadi, said the issue was being exploited for political gains, saying their rivals had blown the matter out of proportion to tarnish PAS’s Islamist credentials.

“Remember: the speech was made in 1981,” Anwar, speaking to the media yesterday, said with a smile.

“He should be allowed or given the space to explain himself. We should at least listen to his explanation first,” added the PKR de facto leader.

Muhyiddin, however, insisted that the “Amanat Hadi” was a blatantly aimed at sowing hatred towards the ruling coalition and urged Muslim voters not be swayed by opposition attempts to use religion to woo support.

He called on the country’s ethnic majority to reject a divisive opposition and said voters must continue to back the Najib administration if they want Malaysia to enjoy continued success.






I find it funny that UMNO constantly accused PAS of being deviant and causing disunity among Muslims and at the same time, continuously coerced PAS into forming a unity government with them

It's UMNO that divide and cheated their own Malay community and crying for sympathy votes.

unethical UMNO dog barking again....‘Unethical’ for polls monitors to complain to PKR, says EC.....How did yourself ...???

The Election Commission (EC) called it “unethical” for independent observers to complain to PKR, saying today that the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) appointed to monitor Election 2013 have to be impartial and independent of political parties.

EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar also denied PKR secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail’s claims that the commission was restricting said observers from monitoring the polls freely.

“I have said in many statements before this, why these NGOs need to complain to PKR which is a political party?

“If these NGOs truly want to be (polls) observers, they have to be independent of any political parties,” Wan Ahmad (picture) said 

Wan Ahmad said the EC had met with all NGOs that wanted to observe this year’s elections, and that being “impartial” was a main requirement.

“The basis of the appointment of these NGOS is impartial, that is the main condition.”

“But I am very sad, if these NGOS go and complain to PKR, this is unethical.

“This (Datuk) Saifuddin Nasution (Ismail) is good with words, it shouldn’t be like this,” Wan Ahmad said.

Last Wednesday, Saifuddin accused the EC of imposing guidelines that restrict six polls observers from monitoring the entire polls process fairly.

“This task of observing is very critical especially for areas that Pakatan Rakyat defines as hot seats,” Saifuddin said in a press conference after a PR secretariat meeting at the PKR headquarters.

“We discussed in detail about the restrictions...(and) it does not reflect the EC’s readiness to carry out a fair general elections, and if not, how can there be a fair GE.”

The six NGOs that have been accredited by the EC are the Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M), Merdeka Center, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS), Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS), Majlis Belia Malaysia (MBM), and Persatuan Promosi Hak Asasi Manusia (Proham).

A day after Saifuddin’s press conference, Wan Ahmad explained that observers are not allowed to speak with any party agents and EC workers at the polling centre to prevent their work from being disrupted.

He also said that observers are not allowed to speak to the media to prevent possible irresponsible manipulation of their statements.

“They (observers) will be appointed according to the law and under oath. They will not be allowed to communicate with anyone before submitting their observation report to the EC.

“It will not be logical to allow observers to interview EC not speak if there are not enough facts or details. I challenge Saifuddin to seek clarification from EC,” Wan Ahmad was quoted saying by national news agency Bernama.

Today, Wan Ahmad reportedly said that the observers should have expressed their unhappiness with any of the conditions directly to the EC.

“The NGOs can be perceived as a political informer. This is clearly a breach of confidentiality that each of the NGOs involved is aware of. The EC had impressed on them many times that the discussions were confidential.

“They are being unethical. We also want to find out who among them is the one with a ‘big mouth’,” Wan Ahmad said in a report by The Star.

He also refuted Saifuddin’s claims that the independent observers will not be allowed to monitor the vote count, saying that they will be permitted to watch.

“Ballot counting is an important election process. How can we not allow them to observe this? But we cannot allow too many of them because of space.

“Agents of candidates will also be present to closely monitor this.

“I do not know whether the NGOs involved do not understand us or that the political party has twisted the issue,” he said







How can we conduct a free and fair election if there is no transparency in the process?

If EC's objective is really to be transparent, then they should not be afraid of complains but remain open to questions from both side of the political divide to ensure a free and fair election.

You and your EC is worst, IPOV "Institution Productions of Alien Votes"!!!

It is also unethical for the head of EC to be a staunch supporter and member of UMNO. You supposed to be impartial and independent. So what are you taking now!

that's right not blame the government if submarine scandal disaster tarnished the country's image....Najib: Do not blame government for disasters

The public should not blame the government whenever a disaster, such as the recent flood, occurs, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
He said, there were other factors which caused flood, namely, the monsoon season, and global warming, which was currently, a worldwide phenomenon.

“One of the factors causing flood is the monsoon season (which occurs annually) and we find the rainfall to be heavier this season.

“Other elements afflicting the world are global warming and changes in the weather, whereby, it is difficult to interpret the effects of the phenomenon.

“However, according to weather experts, if rain falls, it would be heavier than normal,” he said.

Najib said this at a ceremony to hand over financial aid of RM500 each to 686 families affected by flood, at the Sultan Ahmad Shah Pahang Islamic College here today.

Also present were his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob and State Secretary Datuk Seri Mohd Saffian Ismail.

Najib, in the meantime, said the government would endeavour to give the best and help the people tackle the flood situation.

“We cannot blame any party because it warrants global efforts to tackle the problem of weather changes which is yet to be effectively handled by the international community.

“But, as a government, we will endeavour to face the phenomenon and address the flood disaster in the best possible manner,” he said.

He said, the government gave its best to the people with effective management and administration for good economic growth which brought more revenue to the nation. — Bernama

corruption 1 malaysia ... najib proud to bribe voters and framing false hope to win cheat in the upcoming elections ...BR1M will likely boost BN’s chances in the next election

As the federal government prepares to hand out cash aid to millions of Malaysian households in the next few weeks, the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition is set to be a major beneficiary in terms of votes in this year’s general election, political analysts and even opposition lawmakers have conceded.

They expect the 1 Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) handout to be a swing factor, particularly in rural areas.

“BR1M will provide a huge multiplier effect, not only economically, but to draw votes towards the ruling government,” said Asri Salleh from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Terengganu.

“The recipients will mostly be the hardcore poor and urban poor, so it will definitely swing votes.”

This view was echoed by the DAP.

“They’ll have a big impact. Especially in “protecting” their traditional votes in the rural areas ... That’s the reason why (the prime minister) keeps postponing polls,” DAP’s Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua said.

Pua, who is also the DAP Selangor deputy chief, said that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak (picture) had missed his chance to call the polls after the first BR1M aid was handed out last year.

“He now knows that he has to call elections within three months of BR1M 2.0 so that the positive effect will not disappear, as people (tend to) forget after three months,” said Pua.

Unlike BN, Pua explained that PR do not have the same financial muscle, especially in states not ruled by them, like Johor, Pahang and Perak, so it will be difficult for them to counter the feel-good effect of BR1M in the rural areas.

A major sum of RM3 billion will be allocated for BR1M 2.0, a more than 40 per cent increase from the RM2.1 billion allocated for the first BR1M.

Datuk Samsol Bari Jamali, Umno Johor information chief, refuted claims that BR1M is a deliberate attempt to sway and ensure votes from a certain segment of the society.

“If BR1M is really for the election, how come the government has started giving it even from last year?.

“BR1M is not a BN thing, it is a manifestation of the government’s promise to the people,” Samsol Bari argued.

Professor Dr Jayum Jawan, a political scientist from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) said that he will not be surprised if BR1M swings the vote of Malaysians towards BN, but criticised the one-off handouts practised by the government.

“If BN wants to capture the hearts of the voters, they need a more comprehensive and sustainable economic blueprint which will involve as many citizens as possible,” offered Jayum.

“BR1M is one-off, people are aware that it is just for the election,” Jayum said.

More than 2.3 million applications had been received for BR1M 2.0 as at December 17, with more than 1.6 million of the applications from single unmarried people and more than 720,000 from households.

Malaysians with a household income of less than RM3,000 a month are eligible for the one-off RM500 cash aid, while single unmarried individuals aged 21 and above and earning not more than RM2,000 a month are eligible for a one-off RM250 aid.

BR1M 2.0 is expected to benefit 4.3 million households and 2.7 million single unmarried individuals, compared to 4.2 million people for the first BR1M last year






When come to election, BN only came out with BR1M handout, if BN manage to retain power in GE-13, do you think BR1M will still apply? At that time all goods price will go up to compensate the BR1M paid out now, AND the cronies of BN will continue to exploit rakyat money to get rich like AES, Scropion case, buy things at 10 times market price, lembu case, etc etc. PR is eliminating the BN cronies and return the money to rakyat by abolish PLUS toll, PTPTN loans, reducing import duties on car price, reducing petrol price etc. do you think rakyat will prefer continue support BN rulling?

BR1M money belongs to MALAYSIA, NOT UMNO !

As usual, UMNO is treating the country's money as their own money.
BN must be voted out with this type of mentality, still not changed !

The Value of a Malaysian who votes for the ruling coalition after receiving the hand out is only RM500. If this is true then the world it would be considered and written in the History of the world that, the cheapest human live in Malaysia, shameless without any moral values which can be bought for RM500, not matter what your religion is. Therefore it is okay to receive the RM500 BECAUSE it is your money,

BUT, vote wisely to for those who really care for the Rakyat's concern, especially, cronyism and corruption. DO NOT VOTE for dictators who think that it is their birth right to rule the country according to their whips and fancies with the ideology that The RAKYAT must LISTEN to THEM not the other way.

Find mystery lawyer behind Bala’s second SD

The Bar Council was today chided for dragging its feet over the identity of the mystery lawyer behind P. Balasubramaniam's controversial second sworn statement into the 2006 murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, despite the number of clues at its disposal.

Lawyer Americk Singh Sidhu, who is acting for the former private detective, told The Malaysian Insider the Bar Council should speed up its investigation on the high-profile case that had previously been linked to several high-ranking government officials and resurfaced recently in the run-up to the 13th general elections.

“I'm suggesting the Bar Council was a little hesitant in investigating this matter,” he said when contacted today.

The Bar Council, a statutory body regulating the professional conduct of some 14,000 legal practitioners in the country, has said it is investigating the possibility of misconduct in the drafting of Balasubramaniam’s second statutory declaration (SD), which contradicts his previous sworn statement made just a day earlier over the death of the Mongolian translator hired to assist in the government's acquisition of two French submarines several years ago.

“They can pass the matter to the disciplinary board for action,” Americk said, adding that the Bar Council could of its own volition push for an inquiry panel to be set up.

A cloud of mystery has been hanging over the identity of the lawyer who had drawn up Balasubramaniam's second SD, dated a day after his first on July 3, 2008, regarding Altantuya’s 2006 murder, for which two elite police commandos have been convicted and are facing death sentences.

In an open letter published earlier today, Americk said M. Arunampalam's role as the lawyer who had drafted Balasubramaniam's second SD had been dispelled by well-connected businessman Deepak Jaikishan who is also in the centre of the controversy surrounding Balasubramaniam’s two SDs.

He said the clues were all assembled before the Bar Council to act and advised the body to check out lawyers who had previously worked for the politicians named in Balasubramaniam's (picture) SD to question them in an inquiry.

He pointed that only a handful of lawyers would have access to a prominent personality that had been named in Balasubramaniam's SDs out of the 14,000 members of the Malaysian Bar.

Americk pointed out that Deepak had cleared Arunampalam - whom the carpet dealer had engaged to handle his property transactions previously - as a likely candidate for drafting the second SD.

“We have now narrowed down the range of potential participants. This should assist the Bar Council in its endeavours to trace the culprit(s) who unilaterally and without instructions, drafted a false statutory declaration for my client to sign under circumstances in which the question of voluntariness remains highly suspect,” he had said in his open letter today.

Americk had previously called on the Malaysian Bar president Lim Chee Wee to “organise a simple email to be sent to all members of the Malaysian Bar requesting that the member(s) responsible for drafting that 2nd SD do the right thing and make themselves known, as it appears innocent parties may be publicly falling victim to the blame game and finger pointing which has emerged since Deepak’s revelations, to which I certainly do not subscribe”.

In a harried press conference on July 4, 2008, Balasubramaniam, accompanied by M. Arulampalam, came out to withdraw his first SD, where he negated the contents of the first statement, claiming it had been signed under duress.

He then produced a second statement, which he claimed later in 2009 had been prepared by another lawyer, whom he did not meet with and who did not consult him when drafting the document.

A former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) adviser, Tan Sri Robert Phang, had publicly named Tan Sri Cecil Abraham, who sits on the graftbuster’s Operations Review Panel (PPO), as the lawyer in question in a news conference last month.

Three others have raised the issue publicly – carpet merchant Deepak Jaikishan, former minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, and a political activist, Haris Ibrahim.

Haris, a former lawyer, has written in to the Bar Council demanding it investigate the lawyer for misconduct.

But Americk, who said he knew Abraham personally and described him as “someone who possesses such an ingrained sense of dignity, integrity and professionalism”, pointed out there was no concrete evidence to show the latter had drafted Balasubramaniam’s second SD.

Americk stressed that the former private investigator had not met the person who drew up the second statement that he claimed he had been coerced to sign and was clueless as to the person’s identity.

The MACC’s PPO also spoke out on the issue yesterday, saying that Abraham had not been part of the review team that had closed the investigation file on Balasubramaniam’s SD.

“PPO had agreed with the decision by the deputy public prosecutor to stop investigating the case on grounds the main witnesses’ testimonies were not supported by any other witness and the credibility of the main witnesses were disputable.

“PPO wishes to state that one of the panel members, Tan Sri Datuk Cecil Abraham was not present and was not involved in that meeting,” Tan Sri Hadenan Abdul Jalil, chairman of the eight-man MACC operations review panel, said in a media statement last month.






When crimes are committed silence from those whocommitted it is not golden. There is a common mystery about all those implicated in the murder of Altantuya. THEY HAVE ALL BECOME SILENT. Najib, Rosmah, Zahidi and now the LAWYER who drafted the 2nd SD without the prior consent of PI Bala.

All these points to elements of guilt in those implicated. To make matters worse the Bar Council is hatching eggs on this case. The custodians of justice are taking their sweet time to investigate the lawyer. Why is this so?

It sounds like PI Bala has pondered long and hard upon this connundrum to have raised the question of who was BEHIND the second SD, and there are some unsettled scores.

The lawyer who drafted the second SD has probably committed a crime and should not remain incognito.
