So, PAS has sacked YB Nasharudin Mat Isa from its Majlis Syura Ulama.
KL Pos reported that the PAS’s Majlis Syura secretary, Datuk Nik Zawawi Nik Salleh said that the decision was made during a meeting on January 13, 2013 which was chaired by the PAS’s Mursyidul Am, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.
PAS claimed that YB Nasha went against the party’s rule.
A lot of PAS’s leaders are not happy with Uncle Nasha because Uncle Nasha does not agree with PAS’s un-Islamic ways and ideas.
Well, now I wonder will PAS finally sack Uncle Nasha from the party before the 13th General Election?
Citrus growers across California worked frantically through the night to keep their fruit from freezing as temperatures in their orchards dropped. (Jan. 14)
This Jan. 12, 2013, photo shows frost on a tree with oranges in an orchard near Sanger, Calif., after a night of freezing temperatures. As an unusual cold spell gripped parts of the West for a fifth day, some California citrus growers reported damage to crops and an agriculture official said national prices on lettuce have started to rise because of lost produce in Arizona.

I was very proud and honoured when the vice-president of Persatuan Peguam Muslim Malaysia (PPMM), Uncle Azril Mohd Amin invited us to a round table meeting organised by PPMM at the Putrajaya Marriott Hotel yesterday.
It was a closed discussion and lots of lawyers were there as well as some Islamic NGOs or NGIs activists.
My siblings and I were the only kids and teens whom were invited to that important discussion.
It was a great experience but I am sad because I don’t really understand what Uncle Azril said in his speech as he was speaking in Malay language, using difficult words.
And I can’t even read words on the English written slide show for I forgot to wear my glasses.
But fortunately Uncle Azril, my parents and my big sisters helped me to understand more about the it later on.
What was discussed was about the demands made by the Coalition of Malaysian NGOs in the Universal Periodic Review Process (COMANGO) and also about the treaty made by the United Nations regarding LGBT which Malaysia haven’t sign because Malaysia is an Islamic country.
I was shocked when I read the demands made by COMANGO.
I think that most of the demands are unfair and bias because lots of them are against the human rights of most Malaysian and also against our Federal Constitution.
Furthermore a lot of important NGOs are not part of COMANGO, so COMANGO does not represend the voice of the majority of Malaysian.
Is it fair to force a sovereign country to change parts of its Federal Constitution and to go against the human rights of the majority of its citizens or robbing their human rights; just to a make small group of people happy?
How about my human rights if their demands were accepted; because some of their demands are against my human rights.
As a citizen, I also want my human rights to be protected even though I am just a kid and I do not want my human rights to be robbed by others who fight for their own agendas.
The United Nations must understand that every country is unique and the values and the needs of its citizens is different from others so nobody must be forced to accept a universal value as the only standard of human rights.
If Malaysian eat rice, nobody must force us to eat bread instead of rice; so if Malaysia do not accept or recognise certain values, nobody must rob our rights by forcing Malaysia to accept the values.
I want to thank Uncle Azril for inviting me to the discussion because it was an important discussion about an interesting topic about Human Rights, and I learned a lot of thing from it.
