This looks more like a riot than a peaceful demonstration.

Riot is a disaster.

(Please click here for videos on ‘Bersih 3.0 Riot Instigatigated By Anwar and Azmin?( Video-Anwar dan Azmin Signal Rempuh Dataran Merdeka?)

Rioters used violence, hurt others, destroying things and leaving behind lots of rubbish.

And the Bersih 3.0 demonstrator claimed that they are peaceful and the police are being violent.

Bersih means clean but look a the rubbish left behind by the demonstrators.

Bersih 3.0 – A Poem By Ahmad Ali Karim

Bersih 3.0:In Videos-Police Brutality?/Video-Keganasan Polis?

Bersih 3.0 Violence – The End Justifies The Means?

Bersih 3.0 – As Peaceful As Promised?

Demonstrators thew all kinds of things towards a moving police car and attacking the car. The photo shows demonstrators kicking the car and someone climbed onto the car kicking the windscreen. They then hit the driver and a reporter who tried to help the bleeding policeman. Are they peaceful people?

Today there was a demonstration called Bersih 3.0 in Kuala Lumpur.

(Please click here for more photos and videos of Bersih 3.0).

The organizers said that it was a peaceful demonstration but it was not.

It was very bad, road had to be closed and the demonstrators even overturned a police car.

This is a disaster.

Big demonstrations should not been held in open places in the city.

Why big street demonstrations are bad?

  • It can turn into riot and cause a very big war in the country.

  • People over there including the organisers could get hurt.

  • Scare the tourists and investors.

  • Shop has to be closed.

If you really need to make a big demonstration:

  1. Ask permission from the police.

  2. Follow the police’s instructions.

  3. Do it in a big building such as a stadium like Himpunan Sejuta Umat because it will be much easier to control the crowd and the organisers won’t be disturbing other people.

  4. The organiser must control the crowd and do it peacefully.

Do we want these to happen in Malaysia?

The Calovinia – A Book By Ahmad Ali Karim

This is the front cover of 'The Calovinia'. I designed the cover my self. Ahmad Ali JetPlane Books is a subsidiary of one of my imaginary companies, Ahmad Ali JetPlane group.

I love writing stories. I wrote my first story, entitled ‘The Pink Elephant’ when I was about 3 years old. It was actually a really, really short story 🙂 And on my ninth birthday (February 13, 2012), I finished writing my first storybook! The book has 26 chapters with about 5100 words. My mother and my big sister Aiman Amani love my book and said that it is fun, funny and really amazing. 

I am very, very, very happy and excited when my father printed a few copies of the book 🙂 I gave the first copy to Pak Cik Amin and Ummi Yati. I am very happy because Pak Cik Amin, Abang Aiman and Abang Hatim like the way I wrote the story. I wish I can print this book in a real story book format and sell it like Uncle Awang Goneng :mrgreen:

Below is the first chapter of my book:

CHAPTER 1: THE CALOVINIA

   Once upon a time, there was a nice beautiful place called Calovinia. But one day, Brotosh armies attacked the place and destroyed some of the beautiful buildings.

   The next day, the Calovinians make an alliance meeting with the Brotosh and the Brotosh became allies. Sir Adhavadejonge of Calovininia told the Brotosh not to let the Arguays know about the agreement. But unfortunately the Arguays had already heard about it.

   The Arguays rushed in to the Calovinian castle and attacked them using some magical swords and arrows. Sir Ali ordered his griffins to attack the Arguays. The griffins blew big blue fire from their mouth but the Arhuays managed to steal the special dagger from the Calovinian treasure box and put it into their own treasure box before taking it away.

   After the Arguays had gone, Sir Ali’s friend named Jolly said,”I want to get out dagger back from the Arguays all by myself”. Sir Ali said,”I don’t think that’s a good idea, Jolly”. Sir Adhavadejonge added,”You will be captured if you go there all alone”.

   Then Sir Layon of Calovinia took out his sword belt. The sword belt was a special belt where there would always be a new sword whenever it’s owner put it’s hand into the bet’s pocket. Sir Layon said,” No one should bring their own sword because the Arguays will steal your swords just like they stole our special dagger. I have enough swords for all of us

It is already spring but it snows again in western Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and western New York.

I think the REUTERS’s photo of the ice and snow coated tulips is very, very beautiful.

It reminded me of the beautiful AP’s photos of the freezing weather in Florida on January 7, 2010 >>> please click here.

Wacana Kemungkaran LGBT Mengundang Bala Allah

Today I attended a discourse entitled, ‘Wacana Kemungkaran LGBT Menundang Bala Allah’ at Dewan Besar UTM, Kampus Antarabangsa, Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur.

The speakers are:

  1. Ustaz Muhammad `Uthman El-Muhammady from International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilization (ISTAC) – UIA. He spoke about ‘Hubungan Gender Dari Perspektif Islam’.

  2. Y.B. Nasharudin Mat Isa from Pusat Kajian Fiqh Kontemporari, whose talk was about ‘Seks Songsang: Perspektif Syari’ah’.

  3. Haji Abdul Rahim Sinwan from Persatuan Peguam Muslim Malaysia who spoke about ‘Tuntutan LGBT Di Manakah Pencanggahannya Di Bawah Perlembagaan Persekutuan?’

  4. Haji Mahamad Naser Disa from Biro Undang-undang, Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (MAIWP) who gave a talk on ‘LGBT Dari Perspektif Tuntutan Hak Asasi’.

There were a lot of reporters and cameramen from the main media such as TV3, TV AlHijrah, Astro Awani, Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian, New Straits Times, MobTV and some other medias that I can’t remember.

Over there I spoke to Abang Izwan Azir Saleh from TV3.

I think he is a very nice person and very friendly too.

I also met Pak Cik Burhan, Pak Cik Amin, Atuk Mansur, Atuk Abdul Rahim, Abang Amal, Abang Nasrul, Abang Nik Farih, my uncle Ami Ma, Uncle Haji Mahamad Naser Disa, Uncle Ustaz ‘Uthman El-Muhammady, Uncle Ustaz Ismail Mina, Pak Cik Sabirin and a lot of other uncles, ‘abangs’ and ‘kakaks’.

Actually I don’t really understand much what were being discussed during the discourse because they used very hard Malay words (for adults).

Anyway, I think it must has been an important discourse because it was aired on TV AlHirjah and TV3 just now.

More than 400 people attended the discourse.

* I will post the photos once they have been uploaded from the camera 🙂

The Adventure of Hanianon (Episode 4 The Hard Day Part 2)

Written And Illustrated By: Ahmad Ali

 (Please click here for Episode Three.)

   By the time Kalapaga was defeated by the Jupron, Calovinia was attacked by Pompipom. The castle was destroyed and both the prince and the king were killed. Only 21 people survived the attack. 

   In Calovinia, if both the prince and king were dead, all the Uanufs will become knights and there will be no king until one of them does something really great for the country. So, Uanuf Ali became a knight and known as Sir Ali. Sir Hanianon adopted him and took care of him.

   The next day, Sir Ali found an artifact. He took it to Sir Hanianon and asked him what was it. Sir Hanianon gasps when he saw the artifact. It was the great Legendary Muffin! Sir Hanianon took the Legendary Muffin to the Relosolt Orsest forest and put it in a magical bowl.

   Back at the castle, Sir Ali saw an Arguay and a Brotosh army attacked one of the knights of Calovinia. He realised that the Arguays and the Brotosh had betrayed them. He told the knights about it and told them to be careful.

The Relosolt Orsest forest. 

   “If only we can change the tree’s green leaves to grey, we can easily hide in the leaves without being seen by our enemies,” said Sir Burma. Sir Ali answered, “Well my brother, a leopard can’t change its spots”. All of the sudden, Sir Burma said, “I think I should attack King Antire of Jupron.” Sir Ali looked at him saying, “Well, better look before you leap, or you might get into trouble.”

   Sir Burma turned to the knights of Calovinia and said loudly, “Birds of a feather flock together! So, to battle we go!” And off the went to Jupron to attack King Antire. The Jupron armies were very strong and they almost defeated the Calovinian.  Suddenly the Alustaqims reached the battlefield and with their help, the Calovinians defeated the Jupron.

   King Antire was very angry and  he shouted, “I’ll wi…” But before he could finish his sentence, Sir Hanianon went in and said, “Do not count your chickens before they are hatched. We won’t kill you and we’ll be giving you something precious but only if you’ll become our ally. King Antire had no choice but to agree with the offer. Anyway, his people did not agree with the agreement.

   Sir Hanianon then gave the king three diamonds and two hundred gold coins. King Antire was not happy because he wanted something more precious but Sir Ali said, “Well, beggars cannot be choosers and be happy with what you have.”

There were dozens of tornadoes that destroyed buildings, vehicles and trees across the Midwest during the weekend.

(Please click here for: ‘At Least Five Killed By Night time Tornado In Oklahoma’).

Tornado is a natural disaster that sucked up things along its path and dropped them back to the ground may be a few meters away.

I first learned about tornadoes after reading the book, ‘The Wizard of Oz’.

I was 4 years old at that time and I wondered why only Dorothy’s house was sucked up by the twister and not some other things around it.

Actually tornado only destroys things along its path.

Woodward, Oklahoma

At Least Five Killed By Night time Tornado In Oklahoma

Reuters reported that at least five people were killed on Sunday while some people were injured when a tornado hit a northwest city of Woodward, Oklahoma early on Sunday morning as tornadoes swept across the U.S. Plains states.

Tornadoes were spotted across the Midwest and Plains on Saturday damaging buildings and vehicles in Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Oklahoma.

A number of people were reportedly injured in those incidents.

Iowa emergency officials said a large part of the town of Thurman in the western part of the state was destroyed Saturday night but luckily nobody was killed.

Weather forecasters warned that severe storms and more tornadoes touchdown is expected in the region for the rest of the weekend.

On Tuesday April 3, 2012,  a swarm of tornadoes hit Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.

This is a disaster and I am very sorry for the victims.

Two Earthquakes On Wednesday

Yesterday, two earthquakes hit two different parts of the world.

The first earthquake hit Indonesia and it could be felt even in Malaysia.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the first 8.6-magnitude quake was centered 20 miles (33 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor around 269 miles (434 kilometers) from Aceh province, followed by an 8.2 magnitude aftershock  two hours later.

According to CNN, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami watch for the entire Indian Ocean but was lifted later.

Next, another eartquake hit Mexico.

The USGS said the first quake on Wednesday evening in the western state of Michoacan had a magnitude of 6.5 and was recorded at a depth of 12.4 miles.

It was followed by a second earthquake, of a magnitude of 6.9 and at a depth of 6.2 miles that hit somewhere near Baja California early Thursday morning.

Earthquake is a disaster but luckily both earthquakes did not caused any tsunami.

The Adventures of Hanianon (Episode 3: The Hard Day Part 1)

Written And Illustrated By: Ahmad Ali

(Please click here for Episode Two.)

In Calovinia, King Sakiorone was having a big feast. Everyone was happy except Sir Hanianon. He was frustrated because they were defeated every time they attacked their enemies.

The next day, he went to the blacksmith and asked the blacksmiths to make some ‘Dardanelles Guns’. ‘Dardanelles Gun’ was a type of cannon that was used by the armies of the Ottoman Empire and was also known as ‘Great Bombard’.

A month later, one of the Arguay’s scouts went to Calovinia asking for help. The Calovinian king agreed to help the Arguays so they could test their new weapon. He sent a troop of army and they brought along the Dardanelles Guns. The Dardanelles Guns were great weapon and they defeated the armies of Jupron.

King Antire the 20th of Jupron was very angry. He wanted to attack Calovinia. The king said to his armies,”Go and attack Calovinia now. I’m very sure we’ll win”.

At that moment, Uanuf Ali and 50 other great knights of Calovinia were hiding at the back of the king’s tent. They came inside and Uanuf Ali said to the king, “Do not count your chickens before they are hatched”. Uanuf Ali was one of the grandsons of the Calovinian king.

The Jupron attacked them but the Calovinian knights defeated the Jupron. And then it was the time for a duel between Uanuf Ali and King Antire the 20th.

Suddenly Queen Yarmadurna and Prince Lamandor of Jupron rushed into the tent to attack Uanuf Ali. But one of the Brotosh armies who had just arrived saw them and he stopped them from attacking Uanuf Ali.

King Antire the 20th went to hide in one of the rooms inside his castle. Prince Lamandor tried to attack Uanuf Ali again but Sir Hanianon pulled Uanuf Ali to safety and they went back to Calovinia.

A few days later, while Sir Hanianon was hunting, he met three tired and hungry villagers asking for help. They told Sir Hanianon that they ran away because Jupron’s armies was going to attack their village. Sir Hanianon helped them and after that he asked the villagers where did they came from.

One of the villager’s daughter named Aymijah answered, “Kalapaga”. So he went to Kalapaga with several other knights to help them defend their village from Jupron’s attacks. By the time they arrived there, the place was already under attack and Jupron armies had destroyed a large part of the village.

Sir Hanianon and the other knights helped to defend Kalapaga. But it was too late and Kalapaga was defeated. Sir Hanianon told them, “Don’t worry, the darkest hour is just before the dawn”.
