Fatwa says 'No' to Christian words

TMI - Muslims not encouraged to use ‘RIP’, says National Fatwa Council

Following the death of Karpal Singh and the outpouring of grief, Muslims were reminded by the National Fatwa Council today that they were not encouraged to use the phrase “Rest in Peace" (RIP) to a non-Muslim because the term had Christian connotations.

I suppose that's fair enough, but what about 'Amin'?

'Amin' is of course derived from (or the same as) the Judeo-Christian 'Amen'. This word first occurred in the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible), specifically in Numbers 5:22.

In the Hebrew Bible the word means "so be it".

Its first occurrence was in a response from a woman accused of adultery, to a priest who subjected her to a test of divine curse, as the Bible (Tanakh) tells us as follows:

12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,

13 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner;

14 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

Angry hubby suspected his wife of committing adultery so took her to the temple to see the priest.

15 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the Lord:

17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water:

18 And the priest shall set the woman before the Lord, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:

19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:

20 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:

21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The Lord make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the Lord doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;

22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.

Thus the Hebrew priest required the accused female to imbibe the cursed water which carried the divine threat, if she had committed adultery, of causing her belly to swell, and her thigh to rot.

Insofar as the consequences of that divine curse could be described, I suppose that's the extent the biblical authors could go without appearing to be gross and graphic and also religiously 'decent' as well, wakakaka.

And the accused had to respond to the threat of that curse in her acceptance (grudgingly or otherwise, wakakaka) of "So be it; so be it".

It's not unlike the ordeal by fire that Rama (in the Ramayana) resorted to to test Sita's chastity after rescuing her from Ravana, the Demon King of Lanka. The latter was in fact a proper and respectful gentleman to Sita while she was in his custody, far more than the suspicious cad Rama.

Sita's trial of chastity by fire

apparently she must be so pissed off with Rama that she
disappeared into Mother Earth after her successful ordeal

The following extract is from the blog Spiritual Bangalore:

Then softly Rama spoke, “O Sita, you are the embodiment of tolerance and forbearance. Moreover, you represent purity at its highest. But you have lived under the shelter of Ravana. I know the fire of your chastity has prevented Ravana from even touching your nail. But I have my own limitations. As a king I am answerable to my people, and therefore, I would like you to prove you purity in front of all (publicly) so that in future people on this earth would not cast doubt – dare not put any blame – of infidelity on your noble character.”

Thus addressed, Sita responded by saying, “O my lord, how true you speak! Yes, by your grace, Ravana could not – dared not – come near me. I am as pure as Fire. Hence I will prove purity of my character by passing through the raging fire flames.”

Soon a huge fire was ignited. The flames reached high up in the sky. Everyone retreated two steps backwards. Sita approached the Fire and prayed, “O Fire God – Agni Deva -, this humble daughter of yours prays to you protect her if she is pure. But if Sita has ever thought of any other man other than Rama — in thought or word or deed, nay even in dream — O Fire God, reduce me to ashes. Of what use such a body to me that is corrupt!”

Of course the author had to show that suspicious Rama was compelled by his people.

Anyway, those ancient Indians liked ordeal (or cleansing, purification) by fire as evident in their (now abolished-by-law) practice of sati whilst the Hebrews depended on just frightening the shit of the accused with a bit of mumbo-jumbo holy water.


Mind you, a divine curse is a very heavy form of psychological threat. Today we can still see this threat of divine curse being applied in courts where witnesses and the accused are required to swear on a Holy Book (of the individual's religion or like atheistic kaytee, take an affirmation, wakakaka), or in traditional Chinese oath-taking (when challenged by another party), the sembelih of a white cockerel before, but not within, the compound of a non-Buddhist* temple (chaam peh kay lai chew chua), which incidentally was allowed and accepted by the British courts during colonial days

* Buddhism doesn't allow slaughter of life forms in its temple premise

don't be around when two Chinese parties want to make a challenging oath

As mentioned, the threat of a divine curse is still fairly potent today when some dare not take such oath or refuse to take such oath when giving evidence, and thus would be less likely to convince the court of the reliability of their evidence or witness accounts.

Continuing with the biblical Numbers Chapter 5:

23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water:

24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter.

25 Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the Lord, and offer it upon the altar:

Yessirree, in the end the temple priests would of course get the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal uncontaminated by oil or frankincense, thank you, wakakaka.

The English Bible translates 'Amen' as 'verily' or truly', which carries a slightly different meaning to the original meaning of 'so be it', the latter being a sort of grudging acceptance.

And if we were to further trace the etymology of this word, it goes way back to Pharaonic Egypt where it was a reference to the Egyptian Almighty God, Amen (sometimes spelt Amun).

Apparently before the Hebrews entered Canaan (without Moses), Moses reminded them of how to conduct themselves before their God through the threat of 12 divine curses.

And we know through Sigmund Freud (himself a Jew) that Moses was an Egyptian, not the modern Arabic Egyptian but the ancient version.

The 12 curses of Moses have been recorded in Deuteronomy 27:15-26 where 3 are on various types of incest and one on bestiality. You know, whenever I read a hate-email from a western source about alleged or suspected Muslim terrorists committing acts of bestiality with goats and camels, I laugh as I would be reminded of Deuteronomy 27:21, which says:

‘Cursed be anyone who lies with any animal.’ All the people shall say, ‘Amen!’

So to those hate-emailers, I would recommend them to read the Bible as it shows the Hebrews were among the first in that region to bonk animals or Moses would not have come up with that divine curse in Deuteronomy 27:21, wakakaka.

Moses compelled the Hebrews to respond to each curse with the word 'Amen', a reference to the Egyptian Almighty by that name.

But of course when the Bible was written, the scribes had had trouble reconciling this swearing by the Hebrews, supposedly a monotheistic race, to an ancient Egyptian God.

And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada answered the king, and said, Amen: the LORD God of my lord the king say so [too] - 1 King 1:36 (KJV).

So they conveniently and cleverly attributed the meaning of the word to what we know of it: either 'so be it' as in the Hebrew Bible or later, 'verily/truly' in the English one.

So, will the National Fatwa Council discourage Muslims from using the word 'Amin' because this term had and still has connections to the Judeo-Christian religions?

Tribute to the people’s Tiger

Tribute to the people’s Tiger

I saw the Khalsa Warrior saddled up on his white steed
With steely eyes, a lion’s heart and strong moral kirpa
And ready to offer for the downtrodden his good deed
Even if that requires him to ride bravely into Nirvana

Indomitable, courageous, resolute yet conscionable
He was the people’s Tiger with a compassionate heart
No legal or political challenge for him was impossible
Even if he had to upset sacred cows and the apple cart

So he has ridden his faithful steed into the setting sun
Along a lush valley of fragrant lily and bunga cempaka
But he wants us to know his tasks are yet all to be done
With even more after he reaches the Golden Gurdwara

Thus we his heirs of conscience, of public responsibilities
Must pick up his mantle even as we bid our Bhai adieu
And continue unabated his discharge of righteous duties
So he can sit peacefully on the right side of Waheguru

my tribute to Bhai published by Malaysiakini today
[in this post, I've changed one word in 1st sentence of 4th paragraph, from 'So' to 'Thus']

Vale to my Bhai

My hero Karpal Singh has left us for a far better place. I will certainly miss this great man, who I consider as the spiritual leader of the DAP. I respect and even adore him for his persevering principles which he had never allowed to be compromised for mere political gains.

I will write more about him once I catch my breath after hearing of this most shocking news. For now, just let me shed a tear or two for Bhai Karpal.

And I also express my condolences for the families of Bhai Karpal and his assistant Michael Cornelius Selvam Vellu.

I trust his son Ramkarpal and the driver will recover soon.

Wonder where they are now? (3)

Today's where they are now is instead where he is now, meaning I intend to blog only on one person, because I detect a sense of manmanlai in his story, wakakaka.

Indeed where is Osman Aroff now?

Bloke was MB Kedah for almost ten years from 28 January 1985 to 16 June 16 1996, until he gave way to Sanusi Junid. After he lost his MB position (and I'll come to the why's soon) Dr Mahathir, a fellow Kedahan and then PM and UMNO party president, created a special post for him so he wouldn't feel so left out after being dethroned from MB to nobody, wakakaka.

As I had often written, one of Dr Mahathir 's weaknesses has been his quite invincible 'loyalty' (regardless) to his people, especially UMNO-ites, so his compassionate empathy for Osman Aroff's likely post-MB despondency wasn't surprising. Mind you, I suspect Dr Mahathir might have made 3 exceptions to his general support, sympathy and sense of compassionate empathy for UMNO-ites, they being you-know-who wakakaka, AAB and AAB's S-I-L, wakakaka. 

Anyway, Osman Aroff came to fame or rather notoriety in 2006 under the AAB reign when he, a Kedahan and someone Dr M had personally helped, turned against the Grand Olde Man himself.

As we know, in 2005-6 relationship between Dr M and PM AAB turned sour because of the affairs of their respective son and son-in-law, apart from one bridge being too far, wakakaka. Dr M had then begun campaigning against AAB but he was repetitively 'blocked' from voicing his dissatisfaction.

he f* with my pot of rice, I f* with his bridge


Dr M then decided to become one of Kubang Pasu's divisional delegates to the UMNO general assembly that year so he could use that forum to voice his unhappiness with the AAB government. Kubang Pasu was his personal division for 30 over years.

MKINI reportedMahathir is vying to be elected division delegate today and to eventually speak at the Umno general assembly, but his three former supporters told branch delegates last night that he was 'too old' and that it would 'split Umno'.

One of these three Hang Tuah's Redux, Osman Aroff, told Kubang Pasu delegates in his speech that Mahathir had a track record of causing disarray in UMNO and thus should be rejected as a delegate.

Hmmm, I thought another former UMNO bloke was the one who has a consistent history of being divisive, whether within UMNO or outside of it, wakakaka.

Anyway, Osman Aroff said: “We must remember it was because of Dr Mahathir that Umno was de-registered in 1987. It was also he, who chose to fight with his deputy (Anwar Ibrahim) in 1998. Such is Mahathir's record.”

none so smiling than tigers
& only one shall live on the mountain

Osman Aroff averred that if the delegates elect Mahathir to represent them, it would indicate that UMNO Kubang Pasu was against AAB, who was then UMNO president and PM.

Leaving Osman Aroff for a while and coming to Mr Manmanlai, many including kaytee thought the great split between him and his erstwhile godfather had first happened in 1998 when he attempted to 'persuade' the Grand Olde Man into 'early retirement' (wakakaka) a la Tun Razak vs T.A.R.

Manmanlai's stalking horse against Dr M in 1998 on allegations of the latter's practice of cronyism and nepotism was then the UMNO Youth Chief, a bloke by the name of Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who today is dangerously within a heart beat from being the next PM of Malaysia, wakakaka.

Good Lord, if or when Ahmad Zahid does become PM, guess who will bang his head kau kau against a granite wall, wakakaka, and then, surely then the sky will come falling down, wakakaka.

It seems from a book I came across that Mr Manmanlai had entertained his imperious ambitions much much earlier and conducted a power struggle against his benefactor though proxies. I wonder whether he began having such daring thoughts after he saw how easy and successful it had been for him to humiliate Ghafar Baba, one of the pre-Merdeka UMNO leaders, into early retirement at the 1993 UMNO general assembly.

The saddest account I've heard of Ghafar Baba's humiliating defeat by a man who parachuted into UMNO just a mere 10 years earlier was that after losing his deputy party presidential position to Manmanlai at the UMNO Building he was ignored by all as those UMNO bodek-ites rushed to crowd around the new UMNO NO 2, coincidentally a man who relished (and presumably still does) such bodek-ing wakakaka.

It was said Ghafar Baba represented a rather pathetic figure as he shuffled around aimlessly (lost in thoughts or in his humiliated misery) in the outer lobby of the UMNO Building, all by his lonesome self, with a  couple of cheap looking plastic shopping bags on his arms. It was truly a sad picture not unlike the one in 1999 of Uncle Lim KS walking away from the EC counting hall, also by his lonesome self, immediately after it was confirmed he lost his federal seat.

After Manmanlai deposed Ghafar Baba as UMNO No 2, he of course became the DPM. I wonder, was it then he saw or thought how easy it would be to move expeditiously to the UMNO top?

believe it or not, Ghafar Baba was once the President of MCA

I think it was either RPK (or someone else?) who commented on this, that Dr M was no Ghafar Baba and Mr Manmanlai brought himself a whole load of trouble in making his impatient move.

In a book by Hwang In-Won titled 'Personalized Politics: The Malaysian State Under Mahathir', apparently after the 1995 general elections, Anwar's men were generally victorious in their party factional challenges against Dr M's men which effectively neutralised most of Dr M's political manoeuvres and thus slowly his grip on party powers.

The legendary Greek story teller, Aesop related a fable in which  a man helped a viper. The man had revived a viper suffering from freezing cold by holding it in the warmth of his bosom. After the viper was sufficiently revived, it bit the man.

Since that fable, the viper became proverbial as a vicious betrayer. In ancient Rome, Cicero used the expression ‘in sinu viperam habere’ (‘to hold a viper on the bosom’), to mean one who betrays or is false to those who have supported or nourished him or her.

Did Dr M ever consider that he had nourished a viper on his bosom? wakakaka.

Continuing with Hwang In-Won's political analysis: although Anwar then didn't openly show his intention to topple Dr M, his machinery campaigned very hard in the Kedah UMNO divisional election, where then Dr M saw quite a number of his men lose their positions with some not even wanting (or daring) to contest. It was both a test and a demonstration of siapa raja in UMNO!

Their power struggles against each other continued with increasing friction, with Dr M introducing the 'no contest' policy on the party two top positions which Manmanlai had to grudgingly accede to.

Their struggle culminated in the Osman Aroff versus Sanusi Junid's struggle for the Kedah MB position, with Manmanlai's faction (22 UMNO ADUNs) writing to Dr M to protest against removing Osman Aroff as MB. Though they subsequently apologised to Dr M, they refused to back down from their defiant demand.

Manmanlai of course manmanlai-ed, wakakaka, stating that it was regrettable that the 22 ADUNs had been defiant towards Dr M, but also asserted that their views should NOT be ignored or taken lightly. Wakakaka.

a bit of a joker, it was said Sanusi Junid liked
to challenge the non-Indian opposition to a debate in Tamil

It was undoubtedly a war by proxies, with Manmanlai getting the better of his godfather who had anointed him as heir apparent, even in the Grand Olde Man's own state of Kedah. Oh Mahathir, ‘in sinu viperam habere’? wakakaka.

Suddenly, Osman Aroff resigned due to a Kedah businessman by the name of Syed Mansor bin Syed Salim accusing him publicly of corruption (very detailed accusations). Osman Aroff said he would sue the accuser but subsequently backed down, following which he had no choice but to resign. So Sanusi Junid succeeded him as MB.

The interesting bit has been that despite Osman Aroff being seen to be a proxy of Manmanlai in the latter's power struggle against Dr M, as mentioned earlier, Dr M nonetheless created a special position for Aroff. 'Twas to be proven as another ‘in sinu viperam habere’ in 2006, wakakaka.

Would Manmanlai have done that for someone who is seen to be in his rival's camp? You tell me, wakakaka.

Anyway, Osman Aroff has done well especially after he badmouthed Dr M for AAB, wakakaka. I believe he was also appointed as a director of the proposed US$ 7-billion Trans Peninsula Petroleum (TPP Bhd) oil pipeline, coincidentally in 2006 wakakaka, but alas, MITI in March 2010 announced the cancellation of its approval for the project.

Still, Osman Aroff is a Tan Sri, like no-introduction-required Rahim Thamby Chik, sms-ing Mufti Harussani Zakaria, and rumoured international financial expert & agricultural adviser to PKR (handpicked personally by Anwar Ibrahim) Muhammad Muhammad Taib. Malaysia's luminaries?

I last saw him together with Din Merican when the latter was honoured by the Agong.

I wonder what Osman Aroff is doing today? But surely not buying cakes from Dr M's bakery, wakakaka.


The Whereabouts:

Wonder where they are now? (2)

(1) Wonder where is Dr Affifuddin Omar now? He was a former UMNO MP for Padang Terap.

His fame was achieved on 10 December 1992, when in parliament he walloped the rulers as follows:

"How can we continue to uphold rulers who are known to be robbers, adulterers, drunkards and kaki pukul(thugs)?" [...]

"They (the rulers) must be made to realize that they do not own this country. They are not Superman but placed on their thrones by the people."

"The real power did not lie with them, but with us - the representatives of the people."

Aiyoyo, rulers who are known to be robbers, adulterers, drunkards and kaki pukul (thugs)?

Just compare that UMNO-ish gross insult to Bhai's comment on constitutional matters in Perak. But then, Affifudin Omar had the protection of the parliamentary sarung (and speculating, probably the most powerful PM in Malaysian history behind the scene, wakakaka).

So, do you think his daring do was approved by UMNO leaders at that time, wakakaka. Incidentally he is a Kedahan, wakakaka.

Oh yes, the UMNO No 1 at that time was Dr Mahathir and his No 2 was Ghafar Baba. Phew, I suppose some of you might have been thinking: aiyoyo, this bloody kaytee wants to wallop His Reformasi Excellency again. No no, His Brahmic Excellency was only No 3, the Finance Minister, though he would become the No 2 (and thus DPM) the following year after he defeated and humiliated an aging Ghafar Baba, one of the original UMNO members, who would have retired in a mere 6 months time.

But on 2nd thoughts, wakakaka, Professor Bari had said that there should be collective cabinet (and presumably top UMNO echelon) responsibility on issues, including the walloping of the rulers behind parliamentary privileges, wakakaka.

But I'm sure he must be lily-white innocent, as he had been in his 16 years as various ministers in Dr Mahathir's government, wakakaka.

Anyway, what is Dr Affifuddin Omar doing these days? Anywhere in Johor? wakakaka.

But he is quite a learned bloke - see here for his quite impressive CV. Come to think of it, he should act as advisor to Karpal Singh in Bhai's sedition appeal, wakakaka.

And I like him because he had played with fire and somehow got away with that, wakakaka.

(2) Wonder where is Wan Hanafiah Wan Mat Saman? I was told he was once the UMNO MP for Pokok Sena, though I'm not sure where he is now since he lost his parliamentary seat to PAS' Mahfuz Omar in 1999? wakakaka.

In 1992 he said in a speech in Parliament that he preferred the Malay Rulers be treated the way the Indian Maharajas were treated, stating:

"After the struggle for India's independence in 1947, Deputy Prime Minister Sardar V Patel was given the task of negotiating with the Rulers to phase out them.:

"Patel rounded up the Maharajas and put them in a hotel. On the first day of discussion, he could not get them to agree to the Government's proposal.”

"On the second day, he placed soldiers around the perimeter of the hotel. On the third day, he cut the electricity supply; on the fourth day, he stopped the water supply and on the fifth day, he stopped food from being brought in. On the sixth day, all the Rulers, who were confined to the building, agreed to the government proposals.”

"When Patel was asked why he did not obtain the consent of the Rulers in a normal fashion, Patel replied, 'Do you ask the consent of the chicken before it is slaughtered?'"

Continuing his speech, Wan Hanafiah said that "a similar approach could have been taken to solve the present problem with the Rulers."

[above quoted from a post at Dewan Pemuda PAS Serdang blog]

Wow, slaughtering our rulers like chooks a la the Maharajahs? wakakaka.

Anyway, what is Wan Hanafiah Wan Mat Saman doing these days? I believe he should act as 2nd advisor to Karpal Singh in Bhai's sedition appeal, wakakaka.

And I like him too because he had played with fire and somehow got away with that, wakakaka.

(3) Wonder where is N Gobalakrishnan now? He was a former PKR MP for Padang Serai.

His principal fame was being chief devotee to his erstwhile idol, His Most Brahmic Majesty, of which he reminded us on his Twitter page as: Ex Member of Parliament, Ex ISA Detainee n LOCKED UP 29 times for Anwar Ibrahim's Fanatical dream of destroying beautiful Malaysia.


But he went from Anwar's favour to Anwar's disfavour when he had the effrontery to commit 'sedition' against His Diminutive Dwarfish Majesty, wakakaka.

Perhaps he should have first sought advice from Dr Afiffuddin Omar and Wan Hanafiah Wan Mat Saman on how to commit 'sedition' and get away with it, wakakaka.

As I once wrote about Gobala, alas, during the lead up to that infamous PKR party polls he had in a reckless demo of political naivety not only openly voiced his preference for Zaid Ibrahim as deputy party president but also his disdain for Azmin Ali. Then I knew for sure he would be a one-term PKR candidate for Padang Serai for committing 'sedition' wakakaka against His Diminutive Dwarfish Majesty. Just no one f**k around with His Brahmic Majesty's blue-eyed boy and get away unscathed, wakakaka.

Thus it was hardly surprising that Gobala was sidelined in the party selection of the 3 appointed (not elected) party VPs.

Surendran was the choice in place of Gobala even though poor Gobala was by far the more senior Indian than Surendran, and who had been far more active in party events and thus made far more sacrifices, and probably had more internal party support.

And hadn’t party seniority and living the party's ‘trials & tribulations’ been the Azmin Ali camp’s arguments on why Azmin was far more deserving than Zaid Ibrahim of the post of party deputy president?

The blind double-standard hypocrites they have been and still are, their argument of ‘no to parachutist’ in the Azmin versus Zaid Ibrahim election tussle obviously didn't apply to the Gobala vs Surendran case.

Yes, I like Gobala because he had the guts to play with (the party) 'sedition' fire against His Most Diminutive Dwarfish Majesty. Pity he didn't get away with it, wakakaka.

beauty fit to be a Maharani

hope Wan Hanafiah didn't include her and the babe below when he mentioned former Indian DPM Sardar Patel talking about slaughtering
the Maharajah chicken, wakakaka

Wonder where they are now?

(1) Wonder where is Raja Bomoh now? If you wish to buy his flying carpet, he prefers you write your cheque to Ibrahim Mat Zain, wakakaka. Last heard he was on his way to Australia. Maybe his magic flying carpet went off course? wakakaka

But I like him because he plays with nuts, wakakaka.

maybe he met 'someone' along the way and was diverted

(2) Wonder where is Ayah Pin now? If you wish to buy his giant teapot he prefers you write your cheque to Ariffin Mohammad, wakakaka. Last heard he was in Narathiwat, South Thailand, constructing another giant teapot, wakakaka.

But I like him because he thinks BIG, wakakaka.

maybe he's having tea with someone, wakakaka

(3) Wonder where is St Jimmy now? If you wish to vote for him in the future, he prefers you cross (excuse the unintended pun, wakakaka) your ballots against Candidate Chua Jui Meng, wakakaka. Last heard he was NOT contesting in the coming PKR party elections, wakakaka.

I can't remember how he looks like. Maybe he may be on NoFacebook, wakakaka.

But I like him because he is a saint (canonized by PKR), wakakaka.

9-month old a murderer?

Great stuff from Pakistan, the land of Syariah-rule - see my new BolehTalk post Pakistani Police pressed murder charges against a 9-month old baby.

Thank God (pun not intended) for international criticisms.

do you think this baby is a murderer?
Paki police believed so

Political snippets (21)

Snippet No 1:

We've a 100% chance of winning
My thoughts too, what a coincidence!


With Hubby & Wifey going for the party No 1 position, and the Dwarf, Royal MB & Apcet II Destroyer going for No 2 (with Ramachandran as an extra 'prop', wakakaka), and Nurul and Rafizi virtual shoo-ins for the VP positions, ...

.... with Baru Bian as an East Malaysian also a shoo-in for the 3rd VP, which leaves one last VP post, who knows, ...

... probably for Lim Chin Cheh, as a reward(?) for his Kajang sacrifice for Anwar or more likely Tian Chua or Surendran.

But what about Fuziah Salleh who I admire much for her humongous efforts in the anti Lynas campaign.

But doesn't PKR party election make it look more or less like UMNO with supporting cast from its own MCA and MIC? Wakakaka.

Snippet No 2:

KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar has advised S. Deepa and her Muslim convert husband Izwan Viran Abdullah to settle their problem privately.

Khalid said the police were not worried about the safety of the six-year-old boy who was taken away from the mother yesterday because he was with the father.

Yesterday, FMT reported that the mother, who won custody of her two children four days ago, wanted the police to arrest her ex-husband for violating a court order by abducting their son.

“There are two court orders – civil and syariah. In this case it is best if the two can settle their problem,” said Khalid.

Great advice and terrific enforcer of the law though he doesn't know 'which law' to enforce, which incidentally makes me now think I too can be an IGP like him.

Snippet No 3:

Malayisakini - Moderate air quality in 16 places as at noon

Hmmm, should we show our 'gratitude' to Indonesia, and will UMNO please show the way since that's one of their favourite word, wakakaka!

Snippet No 4:

TMI - Officials says search area no smaller, denying Australian PM’s statement on MH370

The search area remains the same from earlier this week, say officials coordinating the search forMAS flight MH370. - April 11, 2014.The team coordinating the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has downplayed comments by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott earlier today that searchers were confident they knew the position of the black box flight recorders to be within "some kilometres".

A spokeswoman for the Joint Agency Co-ordination Centre (JACC), headed by Air Chief Marshall Angus Houston, said the overall search area remained at 46,713 square kilometres, as the JACC had advised earlier today, reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

"That hasn't changed," the spokeswoman said in response to questions about the veracity of Abbott’s comments.

In a speech in Shanghai, Abbott had said that the search area had been narrowed.

"We are confident that we know the position of the black box flight recorder to within some kilometres," he had said, cautioning, however, that it was not the same as recovering the wreckage.

Najib should be 'grateful' (wakakaka) it's Tony Abbot who f**ked up kau kau, this time in saying something wrong about the search for MH370, or he (Ah Jib Gor, that is, wakakaka) would have been castigated by many Malaysians and/or accused of 'hiding' something by you-know-who, wakakaka.

Malay Mail Online - No Pakatan consensus but PAS says will proceed with hudud plan

KUALA LUMPUR, April 11 — A PAS leader has insisted the Islamist party will not back down from pushing for hudud enforcement in Kelantan despite failing to convince its Pakatan Rakyat (PR) allies.

Dr Mohd Zuhdi Marzuki, who is a member of the party’s central working committee, said the party will seek support from wherever it can to realise the implementation of the controversial Islamic penal code — even if it came from political foe, Umno

Yup, that's what I like about PAS' principles, that to do God's work, one can also sleep with the apostate devils, wakakaka.
