717 Killed In Mina Stampede

24 09 2015

At least 717 people were killed during a stampede in Mina, during the Hajj Pilgrimage, while 863 others were injured today, September 24, 2015.

The death toll is expected to rise.

To this date, the authorities haven’t know what caused the stampede.

The Saudi authorities said the tragedy hit when two large groups of pilgrims who were preparing for one of the last major rites of their trip met on an intersection of two roads,

Al Jazeera English’s Basma Atassi in Mina reported that the tragedy took place among tents erected on Street 204, and not where people were throwing stones at the Jamarat pillars which are surrounded by a five-storey bridge-like structure.

So far, no Malaysian pilgrims were reportedly involved with the incident.

This is the second deadly disaster during this year’s Hajj, after a construction crane collapsed on September 11, 2015, killing 111 pilgrims and injuring more than 200 others.

At Last, Show Cause Letter For Saifuddin Abdullah

23 09 2015

Former Temerloh MP, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah Saifuddin was sent a show cause letter from UMNO for attending a new political party coalition, Pakatan Harapan’s launching on September 22, 2015.

The new coalition is a re-branding of the defunct unregistered Pakatan Rakyat that replaced PAS with a new party formed by ex-PAS leaders who lost their party positions in the last PAS election.

As a veteran politician, he must understands not to do things against his party’s policy even though TMI reported that he was there as a representative of Akedemi Belia, an NGO led by him.

I do not understand why UMNO has not taken any action against him when he keeps on doing lots of things against UMNO.

So will Saifuddin be sacked from UMNO? 

Looking back at what he did, Saifuddin deserves to be sacked after taking part in programs by the opposition parties that attacked UMNO/BN and making statements that were against his party.

Wood yew be-leaf it? See SWNS story SWTREE: Britain’s grumpiest TREE has been spotted growing in a London park – complete with a ‘face’. The miserable tree has knots in the trunk that look like two eyes – complete with pupils, a nose and a ‘scowling’ grin-shaped mouth. The grumpy tree resides in Blackheath park in Greenwich, south east London.

Niagara Falls, A Poem By Ahmad Ali Karim

20 09 2015

Sounds of splashing waters,
Drumming in my ears,
Rainbows spawned here and there,
Bringing joy, years after years.

The Niagara Falls,
Border of two countries,
Grand and beautiful,
The landmark of two cities.

Water gushing day and night,
The mighty falls, so majestic,
Fascinating, enchanting,
It is so fantastic.

Ambiga Mahu Kembalikan ISA?

18 09 2015

On August 29, 2015 The Malaysia Insider (TMI) wrote that in her speech at Bersih 4, Ambiga Sreenevasan wants the government to listen to the loud voice of the demonstrators:

“Former Bersih 2.0 co-chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan wants all members of parliament (MP) to move a vote of no-confidence against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s leadership in Parliament after the “loud message” sent by tens of thousands of Malaysians who rallied during Bersih 4 today.” – TMI

Claiming that the voices of the 20,000 illegal Bersih 4 demonstrators as the voices of the people, G25 spokeswoman, Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin told TMI that she wants the government to listen to the “suara rakyat” and said that if she is the PM, she would listen to their demands.

So logically, the legal Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu‘s 250,000 voices are much more louder than the illegal Bersih 4’s 20,000 voices.

And since both Ambiga and Noor Farida are fair and just people who are fighting for the government to listen to the voices of the people; now they surely want the government to do as what had been demanded by the 250,000 legal Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu participants.

So, Ambiga and Noor Farida must now push the government of Malaysia to bring back ISA as demanded by the ‘suara rakyat’!

They claimed that Bersih and G25 have no political motives and are marching on the roads to make the government listen to voices of the people; so they must now prove to the world that they are not bias and unfair; as what they always say about our government.

The “baju merah” were represented by the Malays while the “baju kuning” were represented by the Chinese, but it does not matter because after all we are all Malaysians, and both Ambiga and Noor Farida are not bias, aren’t they?
