No Atheists
In A Foxhole

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."

Temple demolitions - history repeats often by P Ramasamy
Wednesday, December 02, 2020


Malaysiakini : LETTER | The loud boasts of the Minister of National Unity Halimah Mohd Saddique recently in Parliament that the demolition of non-Muslim places of worship in Kedah would cease was rather premature.

During her visit with others including the Minister of Human Resources M Saravanan, she was assured by the Kedah PAS government that the demolition of non-Muslim places of worship would stop. Thus, with another demolition of a Hindu temple on Dec 1 and other non-Muslim places of worship earmarked for demolition, Halimah's assurance in Parliament remains a farce.

As a representative of the Indians, Saravanan remains a mute spectator to the tragic events in the Indian community. Hardly a few months after the infamous destruction of a temple in Alor Setar, another has taken place. The Majlis Bandaraya Alor Setar (MBAS) took advantage of the Covid-19 lockdown to destroy another Hindu temple - the Sri Raja Muniswarar Temple -which is more than 50 years old in Taman Bersatu, Kuala Kedah.

I understand from reliable sources that the authorities in Kedah taking advantage of the pandemic are planning further demolitions of non-Muslim places of worship. I further understand that since the PAS government came into office several non-Muslim places of worship have been demolished in the name of road expansion, their illegal status, the encroachment of state land and other excuses.

A few months back MBAS with the strong backing of the Kedah Menteri Besar Muhammed Sanusi Mod Nor, demolished a century-old Hindu temple opposite a railway station in the name of road expansion. The temple was destroyed in the early hours of one morning and subsequently, a majestic tree, hundreds of years of old, was cut down to ensure that the demolished temple would not take shape under the tree.

There was no road expansion whatsoever and the place was converted into a parking lot for motorcycles. So much for the honest and integrity of government officials in Kedah. Apparently, among other municipal and city councils, MBAS has proven to be the most active when it comes to the demolition and removal of non-Muslim places of worship.

It cannot be denied that these agencies have the support of the overzealous PAS government in Kedah. The destruction of the temple in Taman Bersatu was by MBAS. Although notice was given before the action, the absence of an alternative place made it not possible for the temple to be relocated.

If the Sri Raja Muniswarar Temple could exist for more than 50 years, why has it beensuddenly destroyed? The land on which it was situated might have been state land but does this warrant destruction? Recently, the menteri besar said in the Kedah state assembly that the government might not give financial assistance to temples and non-Muslim places of worship but nonetheless, the state government would be fair to them.

So the indiscriminate demolishing of this temple was it an act of fairness as assuredļæ¼ by the menteri besar? On Hindu religious matters, PAS depends on Indian members who have some kind associate membership with no voting rights. In the case of temple destructions, these so-called ā€œIndian advisorsā€ have hardly any role.

For some pittance thrown at them, they are more than prepared to justify the actions of the PAS in temple demolitions. Yet they have the gall to define themselves as ā€œIndian representativesā€. Despite the charade and propaganda of tolerance, democracy and justice, PAS is a party with powerful ambitions.

Itā€™s religious and political agenda is clear with regards to non-Muslims' way of life, culture and religion.
The writer is deputy chief minister (II) of Penang and state assemblyperson for Perai.
