Nurul Izzah says PM Najib offered her dad the post, if he walked away from Pakatan.so he was sent jail call upon Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail to state if it is the new practice of his chambers to attack and criticize accused persons particularly after they have been convicted and are in prison serving sentence.
Many Malaysians have commented on the speed withwhich the government responded to the Federal Court’s verdict last Tuesday, in which the jurists found Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, guilty of sodomy and sentenced him to five years in prison.With DSAI safely tucked away in Sg Buloh, let us hope civility will prevail when those in power make statements to the media. There is no need for the Home Minister to show his fairness to all inmates of Sg Buloh by assuring that the peoples’ champion will not receive any special treatment. No one asked him for it anyway except of cos the international gambling kingpin languishing in US custody. Let’s hope too the police will refrain from needling those aggrieved by DS Anwar’s jailing. Do we have to agree with every decisions by a court? After all the men who sit as judges are mere mortals! In all sincerity may we Malaysians request that we be given a little democratic space to make use of our God-given intelligence responsibly. a wider canvas is alluring but deceptive. As was famously said of American democracy,
There are turning points in human history. One of the most poignant in Malaysia’s history is the beheading of Najib's leverage' against Dr M,Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim,Malaysians have been haunted by the tantalizing question: what would have been the course of our history. Malaysians today face a double whammy – we have been denied the leadership of a politician who has proven his mettle as a former deputy prime minister and later as Opposition leader. Meanwhile, another guiding light has been extinguished with the passing of Tok Guru Nik Aziz who was much respected by Malaysians of all ethnicity and religion. May Allah SWT shower His blessings on the departed soul. Probably the Almighty has His own plan for the rakyat even without the two towering Malaysians. Like all great historical plays,politicians interpret it. Prime Minister Najiub should not learn the wrong lessons. he should resist the temptation to turn populist. Instead, it is a rejection of Mahathir’s divisive politics.It is entirely within the logic of turbulent democracies that a dream run should be interrupted by a wake-up call. It might be pertinent to note, in this context, that dreams are best shaped into reality with the help of daylight. Among the dangers of darkness is that it obscures the bumps on that twisting road the face of these injustices It’s mind-boggling that one man has struck so much fear into a Government that he has to be incarcerated for its survival. And it’s so unIslamic that a father has to be torn away from his family because some wish to continue their stranglehold on a nation and its people. DS Anwar has been jailed, in the opinion of all reasonable men, to ensure the demise of Pakatan Rakyat and the continued survival of the ruling coalition. But that move by the UMNO Baru dominated government may be the most ill-conceived plan
No one quite understands the tsunami unleashed The thousands that supported the 52% majority votes were Malays condemned, for no fault of their own, to survive in extreme poverty. Taking the right decision needs, in our system, nerves of steel along with forensic skills. The ruling coalition has been plagued by a series of high-profile corruption cases and widespread criticism for poor handling of race relations, including requiring non-Muslims to abide by strict statutes of Muslim law. The opposition coalition controls five of Malaysia’s 14 states and territories and has established a record of building surplus budgets, attracting foreign investment, improving social services and promoting equal citizenship rights for all ethnic groups. But it has also been hampered by internal conflicts over application of Islamic law.
