My Highlights of 2017

1 01 2018

With the arrival of the new year of 2018, I’m writing a post dedicated to 2017, listing out some of the things that happened around me in the previous year.

1. A surprise letter from Tun M, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia

On the 12th of January, I received a letter from Tun Dr. Mahathir, replying to my article,“Perjanjian DAP, PKR, PAN, PPBM Untuk Meminda Perkara 3(1)?” In the article, I did not even mention Tun M’s name but only commented about how the word ‘bebas’ in the agreement between DAP, PKR, PAN and Mahathir’s PPBM can undermine and violate the Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution. So Tun M replied to my article came as a real surprise but unfortunately I am sad to say that not only Tun M’s explanation does not answer my question, but it also makes the matter more confusing because the fact that the Article 3(1) is the Article that explains about Islam as the religion of the Federation and it’s position over other religions in Malaysia and not about the rights to convert to other religions.

2. Made the news on national media

I was interviewed by Berita Harian, Utusan Malaysia and Harian Metro and was featured on the front page of Utusan Malaysia which later led me to being reported on news portals including Astro Awani, MalaysiaKini,  Free Malaysia Today, Tanjak and many others receiving attention from several politicians like Mejar Jeneral (B) Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, Dr. Asyraf Wajdi, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and Ibrahim Ali. [Read more…]

4. Attending the Bukit Aman Special Branch Aidilfitri Open House

On the 11th of July, I attended the Aidilfitri open house by the Bukit Aman Special Branch, where I had the chance to meet the then Deputy Inspector-General of PDRM, Tan Sri Nor Rashid Ibrahim, and even managed to get his autograph. [Read more…]

5. Witnessing the court case of Eric Paulsen v. Ustaz Hafiz Nordin

I attended the court proceedings of the High Court case of Eric Paulsen v. Ustaz Hafiz Nordin, where Eric Paulsen lost in a defamation case against the Chairman of Jaringan Muslimin Pulau Pinang (JMPP), Ustaz Hafiz Nordin, at the High Court of Kuala Lumpur. This is my first experience of witnessing the whole proceeding of a high profile case. [Read more…]

8. Meeting Tan Sri Shahrir Samad

I got the chance to spend some time talking to Tan Sri Shahrir Samad, the Member of Parliament of Johor Bharu. Despite how certain people tried to paint him, I find him as very polite, soft spoken, funny and very friendly. [Read more…]

Speaking to Tan Sri Shahrir Samad, a Great Leader

15 09 2017

I was giving Tan Sri Shahrir my blog address.

I wrote this post on the night of September 10, 2017, but due to the internet problem while I was travelling, I only can post this article today after I got home from the six days trip.

This morning (Sunday September 10), I attended a program that was held at the beautiful Masjid Sultan Iskandar in Bandar Dato’ Onn, Johor Bahru where the Member of Parliament of Johor Bahru, Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad was one of the speakers.

I wanted to speak to Tan Sri Shahrir every time I saw him in various programs in Johor, but this is the first time I had the opportunity to do so.

Tan Sri Shahrir is an interesting person to talk to, we had a casual talk on current issues without the formalities and a couple of times he teased us.

Tan Sri knew that we would be asking him about his infamous brother, PAN’s Khalid Samad whom he briefly mentioned during his speech and we also talked about the letter that Tun Dr Mahathir wrote to me in response to my blog article, Perjanjian DAP, PKR, PAN, PPBM Untuk Meminda Perkara 3(1)?

I am glad to meet a politician who truly understands the importance of the correct interpretation of the position of Islam as the religion of the Federation, which lots of politicians, especially from the opposition parties either do not understand or are trying hard to redefine by claiming that Islam is merely the official religion of the Federation, regardless the word ‘official religion’ has never been written in the Federal Constitution.

Tan Sri Shahrir is a very good politician; principled and strict, yet very kind, polite, soft spoken, funny and very friendly.

When Tan Sri Shahrir was appointed as the chairman of the Federal Land Development Authority (FELDA), my father excitedly told me that Prime Minister Najib had made a very smart decision.

Now I truly understand why my father thinks highly of Tan Sri Sharir; and why Tan Sri Shahrir could win the Parliamentary seat of Johor Bahru even as an independent candidate during Tun Dr Mahathir‘s days as the longest serving Prime Minister of Malaysia.
