An explosion occurred at Chelsea, Manhattan, injuring at least 29 people on a Saturday night.
The explosion which happened at around 8:30 PM at the 23rd Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues was said to be an international act, and is not related to terrorism.
A possible secondary device was located a few blocks away on 27th Street, between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue, but was then removed by authorities.
Police said the device was to be detonated at the NYPD’s firing range in the Bronx.
According to ABC News, the mayor said the Chelsea explosion has no apparent connection to the explosive device that detonated in Seaside Park, New Jersey, Saturday morning. Nobody was injured in the New Jersey incident, which occurred at a time when a 5k run to benefit U.S. Marines and sailors was scheduled, but the race was delayed because so many runners had signed up.
Below is the surveillance video which shows the incident, credit to ABC News.
I received this special present from Uncle Zul Noordin a day after he flew to Jeddah.
Since Uncle Zul is in Mekkah for Haj, the book was sent to me by Pak Cik Rusdi.
It is a very special book because it is very hard to get this book in Malaysia, and my father had been searching for this book every time we go to the book shops.
Uncle Zul bought me this book during one of his overseas trips and I’m so happy because Uncle Zul always remember me even though we have not met for months.
Thank you, Uncle Zul, may Allah bless you always and thank you again for the other book.
PAS’ spiritual leader, Allahyarham Dato’ Dr Haji Haron Din died in California and was buried yesterday in Livermore.
Relating to the news, DAP’s MP of Jelutong, Jeff Ooi tweeted:
After such a rude tweet, it is very clear that not only DAP has no respect for the late PAS leader, but it also has no respect for the PAS leaderships who had voted Allahyarham Dato’ Dr Haji Haron Din as the spiritual leader of the party.
PAS previously said that it is still unsure if it would join the opposition bloc that is led by DAP to fight against the government, Barisan Nasional.
Now, isn’t it clear for PAS that it should not work together with the opposition bloc that is led by DAP?
I really hope that PAS will make a wise decision.
On the 10th of September 2016 at around 9:50 PM, my grandfather, Haji Ahmad bin Omar passed away peacefully at my house.
He was buried at the Tanah Pekuburan Islam Bukit Teratai, Cheras on the morning of 11th September.
My grandfather was a politician, he was an ADUN of the DUN now known as Bukit Payong during the 1960s.
It is very sad that my Atuk is not with us anymore.
Above was how a human rights lawyer, Siti Zabedah Kasim acted during a program hosted by Sinar Harian entitled, “Wacana Sinar Harian Akta 355: Antara Realiti dan Persepsi” at the Auditorium Sultan Muhammad ke-V, Kompleks Kumpulan Media Karangkraf.
The human rights lawyer in a very loud voice said that she is against the move to amend Act 355 which she said is an attempt to empower the Syariah Court.
She went on saying:
“Saya Melayu, saya seorang Melayu. Dan saya seorang Islam. Kenapa saya perlu dicontrol, didictate oleh orang orang begini. Ini adalah antara saya dengan tuhan.”
My question is, why is she so scared of the empowerment the Syariah Court that she wants to discriminate the rights of most Muslims who want to empower the Syariah Court?
She rudely pointed her middle finger as a sign of insult to those who do not agree with her loud speech.
Now, she pointed her middle finger and claimed that she is a Muslim, aren’t she ashamed of herself?
Her actions insult the Muslims because it gives the image that Muslims are rude when in Islam it is wrong to insult others.
Is the Bar Council happy with this kind of behaviour shown by its member in a public event?
