QURAN, SURAH ALI ‘IMRAN 103,
وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنْتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِنَ النَّارِ فَأَنْقَذَكُمْ مِنْهَا ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ
(3:103) And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided.
And remember the favor of Allah upon you – when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers.
*And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it*.
Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.
The way the coalition is now functioning , each ministry seems to work in isolation. Just like each constituent. Damansara is pure DAP. Pj is Keadilan and CS readying for party elections. Bungah busy destroying Umno
The resignation of GLC CEO’s without due process is not in accordance with rule of law.
One that is of great concern is the manner MINDEF is being handled. Matsabu is lost.
What if TDM is gone yesterday? He is now demiGod. How does the country prepare itself for such eventuality
I’m Not a doomsayer? the issues I raised on rule of law had been discussed among the civil societies friendly to ph.
And the concern on matsabu is genuine among the military. After 6 weeks we hv yet to hear a decent statement from him
That was last March.
The gay community was not happy I was quoted to use the word Immoral.
Nevertheless I replied that I personally do not care about their personal sexual orientation but the moment they use public spaces for their sexual activities the moral moral factor is breached. It applies to heterosexual practitioners too.
For God sake or for the sake of being moral they can do it it in the privacy of their own home.
I took the above shot at Rengit, the supposed capital of Malaysian Coffee. It tells us the story of Malaysian agro and auto industry.
Look at the proton saga at the bottom right of the photo.
Now the coffee industry is dead. We import 97% of our coffee. That prettily sums up the state of our agriculture industry. The money for agriculture research dried up in the 90’s. UPM became putra. Money was poured to perwsja and proton.
20 years later, Thailand replaced our leading position in agriculture and also car production. Do they have a car National Project to be the no 1 asean exporter? Nay
So dear professors don’t be fooled by the abuse of the word NATIONAL. Someone is trying to get us part with our hard earned money and the Rakyat TABUNG to indulge himself in his follies. Kalau kena tipu kali ke2 tu nama ya BONGOK.
Malays in cities like pj and kl are the majority. If Malays do choose to be complacent which they already are you can start improving Malay representation by being active.
My apologies for nudging too hard… and assuming my brothers hv ribs of steel.
In civil activism, we draw our strength by collaborations, coalitions, networking from fellow activists. The majority are good on the keyboards, but I acknowledge there are many who are already active.
In terms of representation Malays are not well represented not beyond the Masjid and KRT.
The implication and consequences could be disastrous.
Learn from history … the fall of the Champa kingdom and the fate of the chams in indo China.
They are the only group with no political representation in indo China. After the french left, they did not have any political share. The reason was the lack of activism beyond the mosques.
They suffered the genocide.
They were leaderless because the noble, the elites migrated including my ancestors. (1400s)
If u the top of the heap do not exercise your khalifahood u the consequences are already predetermined.
I see many self haters, condescending comments by Malays on other Malays putting themselves up above others.
Their negative comments on rempits, hijabsters, religionists, drama queens, popular celebrities, uitm, kampongness, Malay rights, the way others speak, any difference from their perceived Malayness are nothing but condescending.
Yet many of these mainly urbanites are self proclaimed liberals who on another platform speak about diversity, rights, minorities
We need to assert n celebrate more our Malayness n MALAYSIANess warts and all without being condescending.
Theirs are serious carbuncles. I see it as symptoms of the culture of poverty, I pity them being lost and being poor in this paradise and golden chersonese called Nusantara.
They are indeed lost in trying to fit in the world of others and worst to fit and to feel accepted among fashionable and perpetual haters.
While others celebrate the recent peaceful CHANGE through the ballot box as a significant and prideful achievement of being Malay and being Malaysians, they continue with their hate.
There is only one place for them. They have to be put in the same baskets as racists and chauvinists.
