Rudyard Kipling

" ā€œWhen you're left wounded on
Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldierā€
General Douglas MacArthur

" ā€œWe are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.ā€

ā€œIt is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.ā€
ā€œOld soldiers never die; they just fade away.
ā€œThe soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,
for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.ā€
ā€œMay God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .ā€
ā€œThe object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

ā€œNobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
ā€œIt is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

Jesse Watters: Democrats are ā€˜droolingā€™ over possible Trump mugshot
Jesse Watters discusses how Democrats are eagerly hoping the first presidential mugshot in history will be Donald Trump.

I think we all know whatever happens is going to be a win-win for Trump. Meanwhile the Biden crime family needs to be held accountable for their crimes! I would most definitely vote for Mr. Trump, even if he was in JAIL!( Addendum) The apostles had been jailed.

I voted for Jill Stein in the past but I have registered as a Republican to vote for Trump because we can't let this island of freedom be turned into a banana Republic. I didnā€™t vote in 2020, but after watching the nonsense from Democrats, and I have to respect the man who dares to stand up to this whole brutal system.

Never ending witch hunt towards Trump, Iā€™ll certainly be voting for him in 2024.

'Govt leader' should be arrested for sedition, Mahathir strikes back
The Face of Evil

Malaysiakini : Without mentioning Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahimā€™s name, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said it is the government leader who should be arrested for sedition.
In the Father of Merdeka, Tunku's own words the evil of Mahathir

He was responding to former Umno lawmaker Nazri Abdul Aziz who wanted the 97-year-old politician to face the music under the Sedition Act for allegedly sowing hatred against the government.

Taking to Twitter, Mahathir reiterated his criticisms against the government, whom he has blamed for several venues cancelling the booking for his public gathering to launch a proclamation on the issues confronting the Malays.

ā€œThis bias against the Malays is a manifestation of the racism of the government. It is sedition because it is against the constitution of our country,ā€ he said in arguing that the leader of the government should be arrested.

Nazri Abdul Aziz

On Monday, Malaysiakini revealed how the former prime minister had taken Anwarā€™s warning of zero tolerance against those who fan racial and religious flames out of context.

Mahathir also responded to the opposition who pointed the finger at him for the security crackdown dubbed ā€œOperasi Lalangā€ which witnessed more than 100 politicians, activists and others detained without trial in 1987.

Although the official reason for the dragnet was to prevent racial tensions from escalating, the former prime minister's critics have accused him of using the draconian Internal Security Act (ISA) to stifle dissent.

ā€œThe parties in Pakatan Harapan had always blamed me for Ops Lalang. But when it served their objectives, they very gladly accepted me as a colleague and also as the candidate to be their prime minister,ā€ Mahathir said.

Otak-otak : The more he talks, the more he is despised by the public, including the Malays. Looks like he has a lot of worries and fear now even at the age of 97! And which he must go all out to 'fight' by hook or by crook. Nevertheless, rakyat won't be conned this time round, Langkawi had shown the way!

Read it all here, the bashing of the most despised person in Malaysia....

Preying On Young Boys - Pakistan's Hidden Predators (Full Documentary) | Real Stories
In towns and cities across Pakistan, tens of thousands of vulnerable young boys have become the victims of paedophile predators who seem to have nothing to fear from the law. Itā€™s an open secret that few acknowledge publicly and even fewer want to do anything about.

In a society where women are hidden from view and young girls deemed untouchable, the bus stations, truck stops and alleyways have become the hunting ground for perverted men to prey on the innocent. In one survey alone, 95% of truck drivers admitted having sex with boys was their favourite entertainment.

At the main bus terminal in Peshawar, a makeshift hostel for drivers passing through is set up every evening with around twenty beds lying side by side. Some are occupied by men, some by boys, and some by both. Most boys have been procured by hostel owners like Hassan Deen:

ā€œWhen a kid is wandering the streets alone, we lure him in by telling him weā€™ll give him some food and a place to stay. Then we pass them on to the drivers.ā€ In return for a pittance, the men can have sex with as many boys as they desire. Pedestrians stroll by as though nothing is amiss and police say theyā€™re too busy fighting terrorists to have time for the children.

Forever damaged and with no hope, many of the boys turn to drugs to numb the pain and sorrow. One of the boys we feature is 13-year-old Naeem. Having been gang-raped by four men when he was just 10, Naeem is now a child prostitute and abuser of younger boys himself. As he says: ā€œSometimes I wish Iā€™d never been born.ā€

ā€œItā€™s one of the most sad and shameful aspects of our society. I have to say Iā€™m totally embarrassed by thisā€ Imran Khan, world-famous cricketer and leading Pakistani Politician.

'Don't go lah YB', deputy minister tells PAS MP on 'hot guy' show By Yasmin Ramlan, Geraldine Tong & Puteri Aisya Sufian

PAS has no say, Bumi tulen from Sarawak

Malaysiakini : PARLIAMENT | A deputy minister had some simple advice for a PAS MP who raised a fuss about an upcoming event featuring buff male performers in the Dewan Rakyat today.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Ministerā€™s Department (Sabah, Sarawak, and Special Functions) Ugak Kumbong told Ahmad Fadhli Shaari (Perikatan Nasional-Pasir Mas) that the latter should simply avoid such events. ā€œThe Malaysia Madani framework is to follow up with the people at all ministries.

ā€œWith such agendas, programmes (for this club), donā€™t go there lah YB,ā€ he said in the Dewan Rakyat.   Fadhli had wanted to know if the ā€œThai Hot Guyā€ performance - which features strapping male performers wearing lingerie - at a nightclub in Kuala Lumpur fits the Malaysia Madani framework.

Pasir Mas MP Ahmad Fadhli Shaari

The event slated for March 30 has incited strong objections as being insensitive to Muslims and Malaysian values, particularly as it coincides with Ramadan. Ugak, however, said the government had nothing to do with such events.

ā€œMalaysia Madani would not continue with such unhealthy programmes because Malaysia is multiracial and multireligious.

Headhunter : Ya lah. Females cannot, male also cannot. Camels can or not, PAS?

Me : In Afghanistan bacha bazi young boys are recruited for sex, so don't be a hyopcrite. This video is age restricted.

So watch it now to broaden your horizons on the hypocrisy of sanctimonious arseholes. Is that okay when the Taliban and Pakis do it?

Arthur Yong : Love to have Borneo MPs pointing out to PAS heads how ridiculous they are. The solution is easy indeed - just donā€™t go lah

Turnedback : PAS should be more concerned about the massive corruption happened within PN, If the show is not good just ignored and don't see, Maybe you just cannot resist the temptations.

RedRusa6849 : Go crawl back into your cave and shut up. Period. Nothing good ever comes out from PUS.

BEST War Battle Scenes
The rolling barrage as 30 corps moved along the road in A Bridge Too Far is one of the best battle scenes ever filmed.

The shelling scene at 11:00 from A Bridge too Far may be one of the best combat scenes ever filmed. The sound of a Spitfire is possibly the most beautiful aviation engine ever to exist.

Definitely among the rare few who deserve such honors.

The End of the Ottoman Empire part 1 and part 2
The Ottoman Empire extended across three continents and the seven seas. Over the hundred years from Greek independence in 1830 to the Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913, the Ottoman Empire withdrew from Europe for good after a presence in the Balkans lasting almost 500 years.

The shared past is often downplayed by national historians, but the Balkan states are strongly influenced by the complexities of Christian, Muslim and Jewish peoples living together, says Mark Mazower from Columbia University.

It was more of a ā€˜side by sideā€™ existence based on the Ottoman Empireā€™s "Jizyaā€ system, where non-Muslims enjoyed the protection of the sultan (bullshit) but had to pay special taxes in return. Over the course of the 19th century, the regionā€™s religious identities slowly became clear national ones; people now saw themselves as Serbs, Greeks, Armenians and Bulgarians.

This rising nationalism, along with attempts by the major European powers to get their hands on the regionā€™s resources and the inability of the Ottoman Empire to implement reforms, brought about the end of Ottoman rule in Europe.

Using rare picture and film footage and with contributions by international historians, this two-part documentary analyses the last century of the Ottoman Empire and tries to understand its demise. Part 2 will be available online from November 4, 2017.

People who conduct genocides and take countries that do not belong to them will surely meet their karma in this life time or the next.That is why countries get bombed for their historic legacy, quickly claim victim hood.

K'tan Islamic dept issues warning to 7 men for wearing shorts By N Faizal Ghazali

Warning!! You will be instantly aroused when you see the above pic.

Guess their libido is aroused looking at men's legs above the knees. So guys do not bend over when PAS blokes are around, if you still want to make sure you grease up the part where the sun doesn't shine, hump to get that smooth feeling. Langkah panjang, mata terang and berak senang!! 

Malaysiakini : The Kelantan Islamic Religious Affairs Department (Jaheik) has issued warnings against seven men for failing to observe Islamic modesty rules by wearing shorts that exposed their thighs.

Jaheik enforcement division deputy director Mohd Fadzuli Mohd Zain said the men were found during a joint operation with the Tanah Merah District Council (MDTM), the Tanah Merah District Health Office, and the National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK) last Friday.

He said that the individuals, aged from their teens to their twenties, were at a shop in Tanah Merah at the time of the incident. ā€œThe operation was carried out after receiving public complaints regarding a shisha business at the location.

OCT : This is the way of life when religious rules is supreme. Good and logical thinking are non existence. When everyone is making progress to live a comfortable life, there are always others who prefer otherwise. There is no science, progress and changes in a religious world.

Everything is mandated according to rules in the old world. It is not about living for today but live in the next world. A sensible person will do otherwise. Let Kelantanese enjoy their religious world as this is their choice. When the Kelantanese wants to change, they will do so.

The rest can live in a vibrant new world, full of joy and happiness and not be controlled by irrational parties whom they enjoy the sins while others cannot.

MS : Any rules for incest?

apanama is back : Is the news about Kelantan or Afghanistan? Anyway, one competing against other. Terus berusaha.

Just a Malaysian : How did the malay race living freely in the hot humid tropics suddenly make it criminal for men and woman to dress up like 15th century Arabs ? What has gone wrong?

Malays in my younger days wore sarong, man and woman. And boys run under the hot sun in kampong or beach or field wearing short pants. Where have society moved..back to the past to build its future.

Darwin Fernandez : Excellent, now no need to visit Kelantan, Terengganu, maybe next Kedah and Perlis also might follow the same foot steps. All this states have gone back to stone age.

It is also good for the people in this states because they deserve it. Why, soon no tourist, no businesses and economic and also revenue down šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£

The Sino-Indian War: Why India Turned On China In The 1960s - Mao's Cold War |
At the height of the Cold War, China's ally India would turn from friend to foe as the issue of Tibetan independence rips the Asian brotherhood apart.

It would have been amazing to hear the Indian soldiersĀ“ perspective. Is there a sequel about the China - USSR clashes? Seeing this for the first time nowā€¦

I have mutual respect for those Soldiers in terms of how they felt. You go into battle as your country says. You win. And then the politicians who were safely in their beds every night ā€œlose the warā€. I can understand their feelings in terms of wanting to keep taking actionā€¦

Interesting how yet another incident that is seemingly ā€œlost save for the history booksā€ reflects the adage of ā€œIf you fail to earn your history, you will be doomed to repeat itā€ or words to that effectā€¦

Fascinating history.

Americaā€™s Hypocrisy On Human Rights Exposed
The U.S. released its annual report on human rights. From Russian war crimes to the horrors of Myanmarā€™s military. On expected lines, most nations refuted its findings. But what about Washingtonā€™s own record on human rights?

As a US citizen, I applaud your reports showing the very ugly side of my country! It's heartbreaking the damage my government has caused to so many people throughout the world. The press and assorted apologists in India and the non-European world need to come up with a more biting indictment of such behaviour.

Give them the taste of their own medicine. They are the definition of hypocrisy.

Will Malay architects be allowed to design churches, temples and hotels serving alcohol? By Prof Dr Mohd Tajuddin Mohd Rasdi

Focus Malaysia : IT seems that Malaysia is headed into the tempurung (coconut shell) world of extreme conservatism, and I wonder how far it will get.

I can understand the unity government and Pakatan Harapan (PH)-led states taking a strict stand on religion-related issues like alcohol, visiting churches, Bon Odori and the Mentega Terbang film because the opposition comprising PAS and Bersatu have gone on a populist and narrow-minded campaign of racialising religion as a vote winner.

With a Malay population being the product of public schools and public universities, this kind of narrative will suit well the simple minds of the graduates as well as those who are T20 retirees.

So, as a professor of architecture, I need to pose several questions so that I can get my lecture notes right.

Can Muslim architects design churches?

First, will Malay architects be allowed to design houses of worship other than mosques? For this, I called up a famous Malay architect and asked him whether there is a rule about this in the professional practice or ethic of Malaysian architects.

The Al-Bukhary mosque in Kedah named after corporate tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary

He said there was no such thing and in fact he had also designed a church while working in Australia. I told him I would not mention his name in my article because that might invite stupid comments from the Malays in the social media and even a reprimand from a religious office.

Then I called up another architect who was definitely NOT a Malay or Muslim and asked the same question. He, too, answered in the same way and in fact, he had designed one of the mosques in Pahang. I also said I would not put his name in my article.

I then remembered another Malay architect who designed one of the most important mosques in Malaysia that had a unique never-before-seen ā€œdomeā€ or roof. At that time, he said there was no local engineers who could design the new structural system, hence he got a German engineer to do it. I forgot to ask if the engineer was a Muslim.

It should be noted that in my research on traditional timber Malay houses and traditional three-tiered roof mosques in Melaka, Negri Sembilan and Penang, Chinese craftsmen were hired to build some of these buildings.

My students never found out if these Chinese were Muslims or not. The Blue Mosque in Turkey was once Hagia Sophia Church, pride of the Christian empire.

Will there come a time when these ultra conservative Malay lawmakers and religious officials proclaim that Malays must not design other houses of worship and that a Malay contractor must also not build other houses of worship as they can be deemed as perhaps ā€œnot halalā€?

PN rejects Pejuang's membership application

Malaysiakini : Pejuang's gambit to have better political security by joining Perikatan Nasional has failed.

PN's supreme council had decided to reject Pejuang's application to join the coalition. Coalition secretary-general Hamzah Zainudin said in a statement today that the decision was made during a meeting yesterday.

However, no reason was given for why the coalition decided to snub Pejuang.

Vijay47 : These setbacks and rejections are part and parcel of politics, Mahathir & Son, donā€™t be disheartened that even deadbeats like PN want to hold no truck with you.

Or that you and anyone related to you in one way of the other got hammered out of shape at the last general elections. Anyway, PN are not the only fish in the sea off Langkawi.

I would suggest that you apply for alliance with DAP. I mean, you have destroyed every party that you were associated with - why should DAP be spared?

MP claims ministry hiding losses behind Covid vaccine NDA 'shield' By Alyaa Alhadjri, Puteri Aisya Sufian & Yasmin Ramlan

Wong Kah Woh

Malaysiakini : PARLIAMENT | A lawmaker has insisted that revealing total losses incurred from the expiration of nearly 2.8 million Covid-19 vaccine doses will not go against non-disclosure agreements (NDA) with the manufacturers.

Wong Kah Woh (Pakatan Harapan-Taiping) cited the Health Ministry's written response to his question yesterday that revealed a total of 2,796,638 million Covid-19 vaccine doses from various brands have expired in storage.

The government backbencher noted the answer however cited NDAs signed as a reason to not disclose specifics including total losses incurred based on the cost of each vaccine.

"Here, I would like to take this opportunity to inform the minister that I feel disappointed with the answer because every time we touch on the price of vaccine or cost of vaccine procurement, for sure the answer we get will cite the NDAs.  

"The ministry has overused it (NDAs) to protect against giving a real figure," Wong (above) told the Dewan Rakyat while debating the Health Ministry's budget today.

Further, Wong, who previously reviewed the NDAs in January 2021 as then Public Accounts Committee chief, said the government was only restricted from revealing the selling price for each Covid-19 vaccine dose.

"If we 'lump sum' all the various brands of vaccine doses, that will not go against terms of the agreements," he said as he insisted on a response from Health Minister Dr Zaliha Mustafa.

Zaliha in her winding-up speech did not respond to Wong's question but promised written replies to all MPs whose questions were also not answered due to time constraints.

Detecting Danger - Africas Mine Clearing Giant Rats
Miss Marple has a remarkable nose for danger. She is a rat, and she detects land-mines by smelling them. She was born in the training lab of the Belgian company, Apopo, in Tanzania. Here African Giant Rats - the size of a cat - are taught to sniff out explosives hidden in the ground.

After a yearā€™s training she is sent on her first mission to neighbouring Mozambique, whose 30 years of war have left millions of mines hidden in the earth. A whole unit of rats walks delicately back and forth over the minefields, attached to lines. When theyā€™ve finished, the fields are safe again. Hundreds of lives have been saved, thousands of crippling injuries avoided. Miss Marple is a true hero rat!.

Giant rats are clever and they learn fast. Their sense of smell is better than a dogā€™s, they have more stamina, and theyā€™re a lot cheaper to train. Apopoā€™s founder Bert Weetjens makes use of their natural instincts. They are curious and always looking for food. They store whatever they find in their cheeks and bring it home. And because they constantly update the map in their brains, they never get lost. Perfect raw skills that can be honed to work with new scents.

First, trainer Niko Saroni must get the new-born Miss Marple accustomed to him. then he gradually acquaints her with the smell of explosives - in the labs, and then with defused mines in the fields. Even a talented rat needs a year to master the skills. Finally, itā€™s off to the former war zones.

Mines kill fifty people around the world every day. And there are a hundred million of them still to be found. 70 trainers and carers are employed at Apopoā€™s labs in Morogoro, Tanzania. Their first task is to overcome local prejudice. In East Africa rats are seen as crop-seating pests. But the rats will do anything for bananas, avocados or nuts - even find mines!

Bert Weetjens is a cofirmed rat fan. Heā€™s even thought up other challenges for them: identiyfing tuberculosis bacteria in human saliva far faster than any human technician could. And if you fit a mini-camera on their back, they can even search for people trapped in collapsed buildings.

This film follows Miss Marple and Niko through the training course in the lab and the early tests. We are with Miss Marple each time she gets the hang of another part of her perilous work.

Itā€™s a long and hard training, full of surprises, until the day comes when she can finally fulfil her mission.

Minister: No need to close school canteens during Ramadan

Malaysiakini : There is no need for school canteens to be closed during Ramadan, said Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek. She said educating non-Muslim students about the fasting month does not mean that they shouldn't get to have meals.

"Why should the canteens be closed? The non-Muslims will not be fasting. As such, they can go to the canteen and eat as usual. ā€œThey are part of Malaysia, let them carry on as usual," she said yesterday, as quoted by The Star

She said schools that want to close down canteens must get approval from their respective Parent-Teacher Associations.

Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek, why educate the Non Muslim kids about fasting. All faiths have their respective periods of fasting, even the Juice!!!! You are still as blur as ever!!

In the past, there had been several incidents of non-Muslim students being forced into uncomfortable situations during Ramadan. In 2013, a primary school in Sungai Buloh forced non-Muslim students to eat in a shower room during the fasting month.

Later in 2015, a teacher at a school in Kedah allegedly told non-Muslim students to drink water in the washroom and to drink from the tap or their own urine if they did not have water.

Ramadan month is expected to start on Thursday.

Ex-Sabah CM deconstructs Dr Mā€™s self-incriminating proclamation By RK Anand

Malaysiakini : The proclamation Dr Mahathir Mohamad is harping on appears to confirm that he is the biggest failure with regard to uplifting the socio-economic position of the Malays, said former Sabah chief minister Salleh Said Keruak.

He was commenting on the 12-point proclamation, which blamed the ā€œeconomic and political predicamentā€ of the race on the ā€œcarelessnessā€ of Malay leaders themselves.

In other words, Salleh described it as a ā€œself-incriminating proclamationā€ because it suggested that Mahathir is the most ā€œcarelessā€ of them all. ā€œHe had been prime minister for 22 years (from 1981 to 2003) and later for 22 months (from 2018 to 2022). He headed two different governments but still failed.

ā€œThe proclamation suggests that his handpicked successor Abdullah Ahmad Badawi also failed. The person he supported to overthrow his successor, Najib Abdul Razak, also failed. The person he collaborated with to topple the successor to his successor, Muhyiddin Yassin, also failed.

ā€œApart from failing himself, Mahathir had a significant role in choosing others who supposedly failed the race as well. So, the conclusion is simple. He is the biggest failure,ā€ he told Malaysiakini. Noting how the proclamation claimed the last general election witnessed the race losing political power, Salleh again turned the clock back to Mahathirā€™s undisputed reign for more than two decades.

Former Sabah chief minister Salleh Said Keruak

ā€œHe was heading a government which was triumphant in all the general elections. BN had controlled two-thirds of the seats in the Lower House. Despite this, the proclamation claims the race is still in the doldrums. Mahathir has blamed Anwar for several venues cancelling the booking to hold a gathering to launch the proclamation.

Among others, the proclamation states:

  • The Malays have never controlled the nationā€™s economy. Even their little stalls have been taken by others.

  • Of late, the only power they possessed, political power, has also slipped out of their hands.

  • The fate of the Malays at present and in the future can no longer be determined by them.

  • The cause for this is the carelessness of Malay leaders themselves.

  • The Malay party built on the foundation of religion, race and nation has been turned into a party to enrich oneself.

  • Jostling for power and money has destroyed Malay unity.

  • The Malays are so weak that even the sovereignty of their homeland will slip from their hands. Their future is bleak. Poverty is forcing the Malays to sell their lands.

YellowCondor6925 : He is crying to be a PM even to the extent of creating of disunity among the races. The Police should an eye on this old cunning man as he may team up with Hadi and create a situation of chaos in the country.

The country is now moving forward in a new direction where there is no place for corruption. This might be worrying the old man. Any wrong move by these two cunning people, the police should arrest them immediately.

Cogito Ergo Sum : Only Said Keruak can say it without repercussions. And he hit the nail on the headā€¦several times. And if you still donā€™t get, then I think you need to see a shrink.

You not only failed the Malays, you failed Malaysiansā€¦twice. Thatā€™s a double failure. Itā€™s time the authorities started looking into your childrenā€™s humongous wealth. That will stop you from sowing the seeds of discord.

apanama is back : "So, the conclusion is simple. He is the biggest failure,ā€ Khakhakhakhakha........ Hahahahahahahaha..... But Mahathir "buat tak tau" and "buat bodoh" because he plan to be PM for third time.

Hahahahahaha.... Nowadays, almost most of the people know his failures and tricks. "Tak laku!" Mahathir can go and fly kite with his 12-point proclamation.

Cops shoot down Chegubard's conspiracy theory over 'Jom Ziarah' probe By Hariz Mohd

Following this Dick's reasoning there was a major coverup in Teoh Beng Hock's Killing

Malaysiakini : Police today shot down a conspiracy theory by a Bersatu leader who claimed that there is an attempt to cover up Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeohā€™s wrongdoings in its probe into the ā€œJom Ziarah Gerejaā€ programme.

Sentul district police chief Beh Eng Lai told Malaysiakini that police officers conduct their investigations fairly and without prejudice, regardless of their racial background. This came after Badrul Hisham Shaharin (above) - better known as Chegubard - brought up the race of police officers who were tasked to handle investigations into reports lodged by him and Yeoh against each other.

"The claim is wrong. It was only a coincidence. And police conduct investigations in a fair manner, and the race of the officer or complainant has no influence in our probe," Beh said when contacted this morning.   "We also have senior investigating officers, district Criminal Investigation Department chiefs and district police chiefs, the majority of them are Malays, to monitor the process of investigations," he added.

Sentul district police chief Beh Eng Lai

Yesterday, Badrul told reporters outside the Sentul police headquarters that he believed there was a conspiracy to cover up the minister's wrongdoings. This was based on the race of the police officers who took his and Yeoh's respective complaints against each other, he reportedly said. "It is unlikely that it is a coincidence that both officers are non-Muslims.

Wish for a clean Malaysia : Badrulā€™s action is utmost seditious and quite clearly intended to sow discord and distrust among the Malaysian people.

apanama is back : Now we have another "Penipu" that learned from that Big Boss "Penipu". To Sentul Police, please charge this Badrul Hisham Shaharin for insulting PDRM. Badrul's so-called conspiracy is a kind of false information. He cooked it up. He deliberately playing race card against the Police. Make a report and call him up on how he reached the conclusion that there is an attempt to cover up Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeohā€™s wrongdoings in its probe into the ā€œJom Ziarah Gerejaā€ programme.

Best Emotional Teachers and Students Indian TV Ads with English subtitles except the last ad
These adds reminded me of one of my favourite teacher. I made a promise to myself that after completing my study and taking job, I will go and meet him and will thank him from the bottom of my heart. But he is no more.

That is when I realised that we should not postpone on tomorrow for acknowledging someone's devotion towards his duty and the love and affection that we received in the early days of our life. This is surely the last and most precious lesson which he gave to me ā¤ļø. I am going to meet with his family members in this summer and will thank them šŸ’ž

The second last add...made me cry...when the rest of the growing students had wished to be a doctor, engineer or CA...I have all my life aspired and am toiling to become an able teacher.May God bless me to inspire and teach one day with all my strength.This is the best and noblest profession on Earth.

These ads are very heart touching and emotional.

When everything is seen through the lens of religion

When everything is seen through the lens of religion, the consequences can be disastrous. (Sadly, something Mamakutty and the learned PAS religious leaders never really understood!!)

History has too many apt examples of religion mixing much with politics, leading to the decline of a nation. Pre-revolution Iran was a free, progressive society. Post, fundamentalist takeover, Iran of today is a land of pariahs , oppressive state with global sanctions against it.

Pakistan hurtling towards being a failed state by Abbas Nasir,

Pakistan has suffered immensely for choosing religion over a free democratic society. Christian crusades too hurt economies in medieval times. ISIS destroyed cities and economies wherever it went. Afghanistan is in a total economic mess under the Taliban strict religious rule.

Domestically, are we going to be another fine example where religion synergize with politics??? and destroy whatever we took years to build and preserve. A religion dominating everything, destroys economies and societies at large. We can finally make a wonderful nation, comprising the best aspects of all cultures, race and religions and become a global economic superpower.

Whenever religion starts playing a more dominant role in politics, governance, culture and societal norms, there are bound to be major problems. We are destroying equality, justice and harmony, all essential to make a modern, progressive nation.

Tucker: This is an abuse of power
Why isnā€™t Biden and his family being investigated like Trump has been since 2016. Prosecutors are not supposed to be politicians. A lot of federal agencies have gotten away with a lot lately, including overreaches, intrusions, false arrests, etc. I no longer have faith in the system.

"When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty." - Thomas Jefferson. Whether people are Democrat or Republican, I hope and pray they wake up to what is happening to our country. It is being destroyed from the inside. We all have to do what is right for us, our families, our neighbors and our country. We need to stand together and get these clowns away from government. The way they are after Trump just makes me want to see him President again that much more.

He's got my vote. Trump 2024.

Douglas Murray Has HEATED Debate in Qatar on Global Refugee Crisis
She is brutal. Constant interruptions and refuses to answer legit questions posed to her that shoot giant holes into her position. She isn't interested in solving the problem she just wants to grandstand, lash out, and virtue signal.

I have increasing respect for Douglas. What a lion, to speak hard truths in a crowd (and on a panel) that appears to have been stacked against him. Iā€™ve been a fan of Douglasā€™s for many years, and I could swear he was channeling the late, great Christopher Hitchens here. Douglas is one of the most important voices of this time in history. You really queue up some good debates.

The argument here it seems, is that it is fine for refugees and asylum seekers to have a nationality or cultural identity but it is not okay for the country to which they're fleeing to have a nationality or cultural identity. Odd.

Douglas Murray is a goddamned BOSS. This dude is SO composed, so well thought out, so present of mind, and an intellectual TITAN!!! If the host had any ability to self reflect and learn sheā€™d be so terribly embarrassed by her conduct and clear cognitive limitations.

The irony of any moral debate happening in Qatar is laughable.

Raub MP: Govt must expedite probe into Beng Hock's death

Malaysiakini : Raub MP Chow Yu Hui has urged the government and authorities to expedite the investigation into the death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock. Fourteen years after Beng Hockā€™s death while under MACC custody, Chow said, there has only been minimal progress to provide justice to the victim's family.

He also questioned the decision of the police to re-investigate Beng Hock's death under Section 342 of the Penal Code for wrongful confinement, instead of Section 302 or 304 of the Act that deals with murder or causing death, respectively.

"It is disconcerting that despite the passing of several years and the government's promises to prioritise the case, there has been minimal progress towards providing justice for Beng Hock and his family.   "The Court of Appeal in 2014 ruled that the death of Beng Hock was a result of an unlawful act or acts of a person unknown, inclusive of MACC officers involved in the arrest and investigation of the deceased.

"The attorney-general must take heed of the Court of Appeal's judgment and instruct the police to investigate the case under a more appropriate section - Section 304 or 302 of the Penal Code," Chow said in a statement yesterday.

Raub MP Chow Yu Hui

His call came after Home Minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail confirmed in a parliamentary reply on Monday that police have reopened the probe into Beng Hock's death under Section 342 following a cabinet decision in 2018. 

Chow, in his statement, added: "It is also concerning that the authorities have relied on Section 342 for wrongful confinement, which attracts a lighter punishment, to investigate the case, raising questions about their commitment to ensuring justice and accountability. "The lack of progress and clarity regarding the case only deepens the wound for the family and contributes to the public's trust deficit in the authorities."

'Government must act urgently'

He said the government must act urgently on the case and demonstrate its commitment to justice for custodial death cases. "As an MP, I urge the authorities to expedite the investigation under Section 304 or 302 of the Criminal Code and ensure accountability for those responsible for his untimely and unjust death.

"The government must act urgently to provide justice to Beng Hockā€™s family and restore public trust in the justice system." Beng Hock was found dead on July 16, 2009, on the fifth-floor service corridor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam after being questioned overnight at the Selangor MACC headquarters on the 14th floor.

At the time of his death, Beng Hock was a political aide to Selangor state executive councillor and DAP Seri Kembangan assemblyperson Ean Yong Hian Wah. In 2011, a royal commission of inquiry determined that Beng Hock was driven to commit suicide following aggressive questioning by the MACC.

In 2014, the Court of Appeal unanimously ruled that Beng Hockā€™s death was caused by the act of ā€ a person or persons unknownā€, including the MACC officers who questioned him overnight before he was found dead. In the reply, Saifuddin said the Attorney-General's Chambers had returned the investigation paper to police investigators on Jan 6 this year, with instruction for the police to record further statements from important witnesses.

GoldenTiger5095 : This is a tragic story . An young man who was about to embark on a lifes journey by getting married in a few days was hauled up by MACC in middle of night and questioned for his bosses " corruption " . He ended up losing his life in mysterious circumstances .

The farce that followed clearly was some of the darkest days of MACC's history and has forever tarnished it . The Appellate court did the right thing to right the obvious wrong of the lower jurisdiction . No action has foÄŗlowed since that decision . A young man lost his life needlessly at a secure facility for the " sins of his boss " .

A tragic Äŗoss of life for his family and his young fiancee . Somebody needs to find the truth , needs to answer , if we want to continue saying we are a law abiding God fearing country . I hope justice and decency will prevail .

JBond : Can one imagine if TBH is from the majority race like the fireman in Subang and from UMNO. He would probably been compensated in RM millions.

That apanama Nandi got RM millions for saying Bossku is an angel. This is Malusia, if you are born as the minority race, your future is going to be tough. You have to paddle against the tide of racism.

GreenFalcon8572 : "The Court of Appeal in 2014 ruled that the death of Beng Hock was a result of an unlawful act or acts of a person unknown, inclusive of MACC officers involved in the arrest and investigation of the deceased"

Are you in all the hearings or involved in the investigations in anyway? By your wishy washy use of language "likely" and "unlikely", you are unsure. If unsure, don't make comments especially when there's a court ruling to it.

Book Mahathir under Sedition Act, Nazri urges govt

Malaysiakini : Former Umno MP Nazri Abd Aziz has called for action to be taken against Dr Mahathir Mohamad under the Sedition Act for the latter's criticisms against the government.

According to Nazri, what Mahathir is doing now is clearly meant to instigate the people to hate the current government. "The government need not be afraid of taking action against Mahathir, even though he is a former prime minister.

"During Mahathir's time (as premier), whoever held gatherings to criticise the government were considered as going against the administration and held under the Internal Security Act (ISA).  ā€œIf you don't believe me, ask Ibrahim Ali," the former Padang Rengas MP was quoted telling Astro Awani, in reference to the Parti Bumiputera Perkasa Malaysia (Putra) president.

Ibrahim was among those detained under the controversial Ops Lalang in 1987 under the Mahathir administration. The duo is now working together under Putra, with Mahathir as an adviser.

Nazri's statement comes following Mahathir's remark that the government was behind the cancellation of the booking of the venues for his planned Malay people's proclamation gathering last Sunday. The former Langkawi MP, however, did not provide evidence to back his claims.

Dr M serves another Anwar bashing with a dollop of spin
Monday, March 20, 2023


: Dr Mahathir Mohamad fired another salvo at Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim but appeared to take the latterā€™s words out of context. According to the former premier, the new government has ā€œruled that the people must not talk about race and religion.ā€

However, there is no such ban and the prime ministerā€™s recent warning of zero tolerance was aimed at those who incited racial and religious sentiments.

Mahathir had raised this in his latest media statement this evening, in which he reiterated the allegation that the government was behind several venues cancelling the booking for his planned Malay peopleā€™s proclamation gathering.

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim

ā€œObviously, this rule is directed at the Malays,ā€ he said.

ā€œThis rule is in fact racist because it denies the rights of the Malays. Talking about multiracialism and multi-religion is okay. It is okay because it is in favour of the other races. This is also racist.

ā€œNo one can deny that in this country, the Malays are faced with many problems. It is obvious that if these problems are not tackled now they will get worse. The government knows this.

ā€œIts (the governmentā€™s alleged) ban on the Malays discussing their problems and finding ways to overcome them is at best undemocratic and is anti-Malay. That again is racist,ā€ he added.

White Mamba : I would suggest Mkini and other news media stop reporting about Mahathir. He is no longer newsworthy. IIn fact he is slowly sliding into dementia. STOP GIVING HIM SPACE IN MKINI!!

TC : M has been accused of stealing and hoarding billions for the last few decades. M recent behaviour is clear signs of a cornered animal

BlueBird : Org tua ini memang gatal. Dia tak boleh duduk diam, suka kacau org dengan mengeluarkan kata2 hasutan. Yang anih ialah mengapa beliau belum ditangkap. Pdrm tlg jalankan tugas without fear or favour. Mula dengan panggil dia ke Bkt.Aman utk ambil statement.

Ruslan Bahari : Dear Mahathir, Here is the response from Malaysian's Endangered Life United Against Tun, or MELUAT:

POINT 1:The Malays have never controlled the nationā€™s economy. Even their little stalls have been taken by others. We wonder why 60 years of BN rule, ā…“ with you in the lead still lead to this state you claim to be. Should BN leaders be blamed, with 33% hung on your neck?

POINT 2: Of late, the only power they possessed, political power, has also slipped out of their hands. We state that power can only be lost if it is poorly managed, because with power comes responsibility. You lose power if you are irresponsible in discharging it. The fault lies with Malay leaders.

POINT 3: The fate of the Malays at present and in the future can no longer be determined by them. Why? Because you won't allow a democratically-elected government to rule? Or is this just a statement unpacked by facts?

POINT 4: The cause for this is the carelessness of Malay leaders themselves. See our response to Point 2. Since you lead the nation for some 24 years, you must shoulder the blame of carelessness as well.

POINT 5: The Malay party built on the foundation of religion, race and nation has been turned into a party to enrich oneself. You were the leader of that party for a long time, so it would be apt to say you sowed the seed of this state.

POINT 6: Jostling for power and money has destroyed Malay unity. Did you not start many political parties after you left UMNO? Are you admitting to being the cause?

POINT 7: The Malays are so weak that even the sovereignty of their homeland will slip from their hands. Their future is bleak. Poverty is forcing the Malays to sell their lands.

Again, what is the fact behind this claim? If Malays are weak, could it be that your party, then and now, is the cause of it? Why are the Malays so poor, when you had 24 years to ensure they are not poor? Cakap senang, Mahathir oi. Try using your logic mind and perhaps, try admitting some fault.

It's not just the USA that needs Trump, the whole western world needs him. I'm a Brit living in the USA. When he first announced he was going to run, I thought he was a joke. However, he is the first president I've ever known who did what he said he would do, and more! Life was so much better! No new wars, and prosperity. This just proves how afraid they are of him.

Tengku Razaleigh : Mahathir Squandered From Petronas RM 529 Billion Since 1970s ā€“ Bailed Out Mirzan & Mokhzani

The Coverage : The founding chairman of Petronas and its first CEO, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said that the federal government in Putrajaya under Mahathir has been treating the oil and gas corporation as a cash cow, especially in bailing out government-linked companies in financial trouble.

Petronas provided the money to build some of former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamedā€™s most grandiose projects, including the KL Twin Towers, the Putra Jaya administrative capital and to bring Formula One racing in Malaysia.

Petronas was used to get Malaysia out of an RM31.5 billion forex scandal perpetrated by Mahathir in the early 1990s in which the financier George Soros outfoxed Bank Negara, making billions and earning Mahathirā€™s eternal antagonism. It paid off US$800 million in losses from Mahathirā€™s ill-fated Perwaja Steel project.

In 1998, it bailed out Mahathirā€™s eldest son Mirzan, purchasing his Konsortium Perkapalan for RM226 million and assuming debts of more than RM324 million. It also awarded in 2012 a RM700 contract to a firm in which Mahathirā€™s other son Mokhzani was a vice president.

Tengku Razaleigh, or Ku Li, said that since its inception in 1974, Petronas has paid out RM529 billion to the government in the form of dividends, taxes, petroleum revenue and export duties.

He also said the governmentā€™s reliance on Petronas to rescue financially floundering government-linked companies (GLCs) had been going on since 1985. Ku Li was the Minister of Finance from 1974 to 1984. In 1985, Petronas bailed out Bank Bumiputra with a Rm2.5 billion infusion. In 1991, Petronas shored up the banksā€™ finances again when it pumped in an additional RM1 billion.

In 1997, he said Petronas had to rescue the troubled Konsortium Perkapalan Berhad for RM2 billion. He added that Petronas was made to underwrite the construction of the KLCC Twin Towers for RM6 billion and the construction of Putrajaya for a further RM22 billion.

ā€œThis amount could have been used more productively to fund a national pension programme for Malaysians, as has been done by a certain Scandinavian country,ā€ he said in his speech at the launch of the book ā€œRich Malaysia, Poor Malaysiansā€ at the Sultan Sulaiman Club in Kuala Lumpur last night.

Ramasamy: Is Mahathir worried anti-graft net might be cast wider?

Malaysiakini : Is the governmentā€™s crackdown against alleged corruption involving previous leaders making Dr Mahathir Mohamad restless, wondered Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy.
Mahathirudan merepek tanpa bukti dengan diiringi kuchu-kunchu beliau

According to the DAP leader, there is a lingering fear among ā€œrecipients of ill-begotten wealthā€ that Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim might cast his net wider. ā€œIn this respect, Anwar might even be contemplating going after earlier leaders who had a hand in robbing the country of billions.

ā€œMahathir who is often accused of assisting his cronies and relatives might have reason to be concerned,ā€ he added in a media statement this afternoon.   He claimed this could be the impetus behind the former premierā€™s plan to hold the ā€œMalay peopleā€™s proclamationā€ gathering with the aim of ā€œdestabilising the governmentā€.

Ramasamy (above, left) was responding to Mahathirā€™s criticism of Anwar after claiming that several venues had cancelled the booking for the gathering.

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim

Without providing evidence, Mahathir pointed the finger at the prime minister, accusing him of stifling dissent against his administration. When Pakatan Harapan buried the hatchet and collaborated with Mahathir to oust BN in the 2018 general election, DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang had denied accusing the nonagenarian, who became prime minister for a second time then, of corruption.

Across the Straits : What has the done for the malays? Steal Rob and blind side them. Given half a chance, he will continue with this agenda in the next 22 years.

apanama is back : Of course, Mahathir is now in panic mode because his 84 years old right hand man was questioned by MACC last month.

PSM raises fist in support after Anwar puts foot down By RK Anand

Malaysiakini : PSM has commended Anwar Ibrahim for his speech at the recent PKR special congress that attempts to sow racial and religious discord would not be tolerated.

For S Arutchelvan, the prime minister has drawn an important lesson from Pakatan Harapanā€™s 22-month rise and fall after the 2018 general election. ā€œAnwar has learnt that you cannot be naĆÆve with your enemies.

ā€œHarapanā€™s failure in not countering right-wing extremism led to the demise of the government then," the PSM deputy chairperson told Malaysiakini.   Therefore, Arutchelvan said Anwar should be supported as his nascent government is confronted with a similar conundrum, involving the same forces that orchestrated Harapanā€™s downfall.

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim

ā€œHis hard-hitting speech was targeted at his base and the international community. His position in talking for all Malaysians against those who speak for one-race politics will be well received, especially in the Borneo states, west coast, and southern states of Peninsular Malaysia.

ā€œIn recent weeks, there has been some fear among the Harapan base, especially the non-Malays, that Anwar is bending too much to accommodate the ā€˜green waveā€™. His message at the PKR congress is to reassure his base and consolidate his grip on power,ā€ he added.

Former Ops Lalang detainee's daughter reminds Dr M of dictatorial past

Malaysiakini : Former lawmaker Kasthuri Patto launched an acerbic broadside against Dr Mahathir Mohamad, stating that the 97-year-old politician does not possess the moral authority to comment on curbing dissent.

She recalled how her late father P Patto, who was a DAP MP, had been detained under the now defunct Internal Security Act (ISA) during the infamous Operasi Lalang in 1987 when Mahathir was serving his first tenure as prime minister.

ā€œI am a child of your Operasi Lalang which you bear full responsibility as home minister and prime minister. I was eight, my sister six. ā€œYou took my father away and many other fathers and mothers. Robbed (them) from their families because they dissented against you and not Malaysia,ā€ she tweeted.

Kasthuri (above) recollected her fatherā€™s anguish when he was unable to accompany her sister on the first day of school when she entered Standard One in 1988.

The late P Patto

ā€œYou detained them for months, years and decades using the draconian ISA, while never allowing them to be tried in court. It was an iron-fisted rule. ā€œYou curbed freedom of speech, assembly, expression and targeted the press as your enemies. You using the (police) special branch, targeting politicians, their families and friends are vivid in my mind,ā€ she said, adding that there were stories of people being imprisoned for merely having a copy of the DAP organ, The Rocket.

In 2017, Mahathir accepted the blame for the detention of over 100 activists, journalists and opposition politicians during Operasi Lalang and expressed regret that some of them were tortured. However, he insisted that the security crackdown was not his decision.

ā€˜A national disappointmentā€™

Meanwhile, Kasthuri said in 2018, Pakatan Harapan welcomed the nonagenarian in the battle against BN, which she described as a ā€œ60-year-old hegemony which Mahathir manufacturedā€.

ā€œMalaysians had hoped for a statesperson, a leader to steer this nation to greater heights but it seems you have never repented and remained, above all, a national disappointment. ā€œSo please Tun, you of all people, have no moral authority to label the prime minister a dictator,ā€ she added.

Kasthuri, who served as the Batu Kawan MP in Penang for two terms before deciding not to contest in the last general election, said Malaysia needs progressive and visionary leaders. ā€œYour time of divide and rule, and the government knows all is over. Please don't be a wedge between patriotic Malaysians in nation-building,ā€ she added.

Yesterday, Mahathir had denounced Anwar as an oppressive leader after his plan to hold a pro-Malay gathering failed to materialise.

Me : Marina Mahathir is so quiet. No amount of spinning will be enough to white wash your father's misdeeds and the hidden loot including your siblings.

Very concerned citizen : Kashthuri,despite his old age,he is still talking nonsense.No wonder the people rejected him in the last election.For 22 years he ruled the country with an iron fist.

In my view,when he came back to rule,he had already planned earlier to ā€œgo in and destroy the elected governmentā€ He was the main destroyer and Azmin was second destroyer
