Is Tun M’s Rights Above The Rights Of Agong

Tun Dr. Mahathir had received an invitation to the Installation Ceremony or the Coronation of the 15th Duli Yang Maha Mulia (DYMM) Yang Di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia, Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan but the invitation was retracted through another letter sent by the Keepers of the Rulers’ Seal dated  5th of December, 2016.

The above letter was posted on the internet by Tun M’s daughter, Marina Mahathir.

Tun M complains in his blog:

 

Saya minta maaf kerana membuat anggapan yang salah. Saya akan ambil ingatan bahawa Istana Negara adalah milik Najib dan Parti Barisan Nasional.~Pembatalan – chedet.cc

Tun M may be upset regarding the matter but he has no rights to say, “Istana Negara adalah milik Najib dan Parti Barisan Nasional”, because it is a slander and he is humiliating the Rulers by belittling the Royal Institutions. 

Like his father, Marina’s words, “I don’t think the Raja-Raja know anything re this” is also a humiliation to the Raja-raja Melayu giving the impression that the Rulers are powerless have no say in this matter. 

It is the rights of the Rulers to retract the invitation and not the rights of the Prime Minister or the governing political party to do so.

Apart from humiliating the DYMM Agong, accusing that “the Istana Negara belongs to the Najib and BN and that “I don’t think the Raja-Raja know anything re this”, Tun M and Marina are intentionally giving a bad image and spewing hatred towards the government especially in the eyes of the Malays who are ‘rakyat Raja-raja Melayu’.

Tun M and Marina must understand that their words and actions are not only challenging the sovereignty of the Rulers which is against Section 3(1)(f) of the Sedition Act but also Section 3(1)(a) for bringing hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against any Ruler or against any Government and Section 3(2)(a) of the same Act for giving an impression that has been Ruler has been misled or mistaken in any of his measures.

Section 3(1)(f) of the Sedition Act:

A “seditious tendency” is a tendency― to question any matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of Part III of the Federal Constitution or Article 152, 153 or 181 of the Federal Constitution.

  • 181. (1) Subject to the provisions of this Constitution, the sovereignty, prerogatives, powers and jurisdiction of the Rulers and the prerogatives, powers and jurisdiction of the Ruling Chiefs of Negeri Sembilan within their respective territories as hitherto had and enjoyed shall remain unaffected

Section 3(1)(a) of the Sedition Act:

A “seditious tendency” is a tendency― to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against any Ruler or against any Government;

Section 3(2)(a) of the Sedition Act:

Notwithstanding anything in subsection (1) an act, speech, words, publication or other thing shall not be deemed to be seditious by reason only that it has a tendency― to show that any Ruler has been misled or mistaken in any of his measures;

The worst is, Tun M’s and Marina’s actions instigate their supporters to make harsh comments towards the DYMM Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and the government.

It is sad because lots of their supporters do not notice that their actions are actually against the law and punishable under the Sedition Act.

We must always be careful with what we say and what we do, as we could unintentionally get ourselves into trouble if we are not careful and overtaken by our emotion.

Police Report On Lim Guan Eng’s False Statements

26 11 2016

whatsapp-image-2016-11-24-at-11-54-16-am

Yesterday, as a loyal citizen of Malaysia, I filed a police report on Lim Guan Eng’s blog article regarding Act 355 at the Ampang Jaya Police Station.

In the article, the Pulau Pinang’s Chief Minister (CM) made four seditious false accusations:

  1. DAP opposes the hudud-like laws because it is contrary to the Federal Constitution.
  2. Our Federal Constitution is secular in nature with Islam as the religion of the Federation. Raising the punishment cap so that it can come closer to Hudud provisions would contravene the Federal Constitution in both spirit and substance.
  3. MCA, MIC, Gerakan and SUPP deserve public condemnation for betraying their principles and promises to uphold and defend the Federal Constitution but also for their political expediency to continue to deceive the people by supporting UMNO that is willing to work together with PAS to bypass the Federal Constitution to allow these laws to take effect.
  4. DAP reiterates that the failure of MCA, MIC, Gerakan and SUPP to leave BN now is seen as a form of tacit approval of the unconstitutional measures adopted by UMNO to support PAS’ move to raise the punishment cap of Islamic laws that moves closer to Hudud-like laws.

DAP opposes the hudud-like laws because it is contrary to the Federal Constitution.

This is a recycled accusation that I’ve answered many times before.

Neither the Act 355 nor the amendment of the Act is contrary to the Federal Constitution of Malaysia and the amendment of Act 355 it is not about implementing hudud-like laws as falsely accused by the CM of Pulau Pinang.

The fact that the Federal Constitution recognises the institution of Syariah Courts as stated in the Article 121 (1A) and the Part 1 List II  of the Ninth Schedule of the Federal Constitution, proves that the Act 355 is not contrary to the Federal Constitution.

Furthermore, the Act 355 is an existing Act and it is already part of the laws of Malaysia.

“Our Federal Constitution is secular in nature with Islam as the religion of the Federation. Raising the punishment cap so that it can come closer to Hudud provisions would contravene the Federal Constitution in both spirit and substance.”

In his above accusation, he made two contradicting statements, saying that the “Federal Constitution is secular in nature” and “with Islam as the religion of the Federation”.

How can our Federal Constitution that states Islam as the religion of the Federation be secular in nature, when George Jacob Holyoake who is the creator of the term secularism, defines secularism as separating government and religion?

In fact, if our Federal Constitution is secular in nature, the Act 355 cannot be part of the laws of Malaysia and the Syariah Courts cannot be part of our judicial systems.

And if our Federal Constitution is secular in nature, the flag of Malaysia must not have any symbol of religion, such as the crescent and star in our flag that represents the religion of Islam.

“MCA, MIC, Gerakan and SUPP deserve public condemnation for betraying their principles and promises to uphold and defend the Federal Constitution but also for their political expediency to continue to deceive the people by supporting UMNO that is willing to work together with PAS to bypass the Federal Constitution to allow these laws to take effect.”

What a defamation and malicious falsehood!

The amendment of Act 355 is not contrary to the Federal Constitution and it is a lie made in bad faith to accuse UMNO as “willing to work together with PAS to bypass the Federal Constitution to allow these laws to take effect”, when everything was done according to the law.

“DAP reiterates that the failure of MCA, MIC, Gerakan and SUPP to leave BN now is seen as a form of tacit approval of the unconstitutional measures adopted by UMNO to support PAS’ move to raise the punishment cap of Islamic laws that moves closer to Hudud-like laws.”

It is clearly said in the Act 355 that the Act only affect the Muslims, so why must the CM who is non-Muslim politicise the issue?

By calling MCA, MIC, Gerakan and SUPP to leave BN, and accusing the two biggest Muslim parties, PAS and UMNO as working together to bypass the Federal Constitution, Lim Guan Eng is trying to create religious and racial tension among the citizens of Malaysia.

Not only that, Lim Guan Eng’s words are against the call made by the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong’s in the parliament on the 7th of March, 2016:

“Beta berharap langkah-langkah ke arah memperkukuhkan institusi agama dan kecekapan perlaksanaan undang-undang pentadbiran agama Islam melalui pemerkasaan Mahkamah Syariah dapat disegerakan.”

Lim Guan Eng has gone against four parts of the Sedition Act 1948, Section 3(1)(a), Section 3(1)(c), Section 3(1)(e), and Section 3(1)(f), an offense which is punishable under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act 1948.

Section 3(1)(a) of the Sedition Act 1948 states:

Sesuatu “kecenderungan menghasut” ialah kecenderungan—bagi mendatangkan kebencian atau penghinaan atau bagi membangkitkan perasaan tidak setia terhadap mana-mana Raja atau Kerajaan;

The CM of Pulau Pinang’s seditious words which contradict to the call made by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong can be seen as a “seditious tendency” that could “bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against any Ruler or against any Government.”

Section 3(1)(c) of the Sedition Act 1948 says:

Sesuatu “kecenderungan menghasut” ialah kecenderungan—bagi mendatangkan kebencian atau penghinaan atau bagi membangkitkan perasaan tidak setia terhadap pentadbirankeadilan di Malaysia atau di mana-mana Negeri;

Accusing the amendment of Act 355 is a hudud-like law that “would contravene the Federal Constitution in both spirit and substance”, is an insult to the Syariah Courts, hudud law and Islam as well as giving bad impressions to the hudud law and Syariah Courts which could “bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the administration of justice in Malaysia or in any State”.

Section 3(1)(e) of the Sedition Act 1948 states:

Sesuatu “kecenderungan menghasut” ialah kecenderungan—bagi mengembangkan perasaan niat jahat dan permusuhan antara kaum atau golongan penduduk yang berlainan di Malaysia; atau

By making statements that:

  • MCA, MIC, Gerakan and SUPP deserve public condemnation for betraying their principles and promises to uphold and defend the Federal Constitution but also for their political expediency to continue to deceive the people by supporting UMNO that is willing to work together with PAS to bypass the Federal Constitution to allow these laws to take effect.
  • Calling MCA, MIC, Gerakan and SUPP to leave BN because of the “unconstitutional measures adopted by UMNO to support PAS’ move”,

Lim Guan Eng is playing a religious and racial games by falsely accusing the Malay Muslim PAS and UMNO “bypass the Federal Constitution” and “taking unconstitutional measures” which could “promote feelings of ill will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia”.

This will cause the non-Muslims to think that the government and the Muslims are up to something bad and doing things against the law which can cause anger and disharmony among the people of different races and religions.

Section 3(1)(f) of the Sedition Act says:

bagi mempersoalkan apa-apa perkara, hak, taraf, kedudukan, keistimewaan, kedaulatan atau prerogatif yang ditetapkan atau dilindungi oleh peruntukan Bahagian III Perlembagaan Persekutuan atau Perkara 152, 153 atau 181 Perlembagaan Persekutuan.

The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong is the head of religion of Islam of the country and “to question any matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of Part III of the Federal Constitution or Article 152, 153 or 181 of the Federal Constitution is against the Sedition Act.

It is the rights of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to make decisions on matters concerning the religion of Islam as stated in the Federal Constitution thus making statements against the statement made by the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong regarding this matter is interfering with the rights of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong.

Left UMNO: Ahmad Said Forgot What He Did To Idris Jusoh

13 05 2014

A few hours after he was replaced, Terengganu former Menteri Besar (MB) or Chief Minister, Ahmad Said has officially left UMNO.

It was reported that he left UMNO because he was angry over the matter and wants to still be an MB at least until during the wedding of one of his children this weekend.

I was shocked to hear the news because I never knew he would have the heart to do that.

Ahmad Said has forgotten the history of how he became the MB in 2008.

On 22 March 2008, Ahmad Said took over Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh’s position as the Menteri Besar of Terengganu despite BN just won a big majority in the Terengganu state election under Idris.

In that election, BN won 24 out of 32 state seats, while PAS won the remaining 8 seats compared to BN under Ahmad Said did very badly during the 13th General Election.

It was also reported that Idris received full support of twenty-three of the 24 Barisan Nasional state assemblymen elected and Federal Government.

Idris Jusoh was replaced only because the Sultan of Terengganu wants Ahmad Said to become the MB instead of Idris.

Of course Idris was angry; but did he leave UMNO the way Ahmad Said did?

Not like Ahmad Said, Idris was and is still loyal to UMNO and kept fighting for the party and did a very good job. 

But only hours after Ahmad Said was replaced, he quits UMNO.

What kind of man is he?

Is power and money is all that he could think of?

If Ahmad Said can get another ADUN to join him, BN may lost Terengganu to the opposition but it is good to get rid of leaders with no integrity and with no loyalty to the party before it is too late.

It is time for the Terengganu UMNO to regroup and build a better team under a better leader who will never sell his party for his own agendas.





Jeff Ooi, “Sack That Selangor MB”

25 04 2014
unnamed

From Jeff Ooi’s Facebook.

 

DAP’s MP of Jelutong, Jeff Ooi, wants the Selangor MB to be sacked because of the water crisis issue.

But must we blame the water crisis on Khalid alone?

What about the Selangor Exco members?

Aren’t they supposed to take care of Selangor too?

And what about the good governance that the oppositions are talking about?

If the opposition parties failed to solve the water problems in Selangor, how could they govern a country?

As Jeff Ooi wrote,

“We never faced water rationing as protracted like this before, not even during BN days. 

Hmm… now, even an opposition leader knows that BN took care of Selangor better than they are doing now.

But I won’t be surprise if later on UMNO or BN will be blamed for their failure to solve this problem 🙂





Penyokong Wan Azizah Kecewakan Hannah Yeoh?

28 03 2014

Opposition leaders call UMNO leaders and members racists and boasted that Pakatan leaders and supporters are open minded and against racism.

As we drove around Kajang on the election day of the N25 Kajang, we saw lots of party supporters by the roadside waving their parties’ flags, especially around the voting centers.

The Muslim PKR supporters shouted to my parents that they must vote for PKR’s Wan Azizah because she is a Malay Muslim and must not vote for BN because BN’s candidate is a non-Muslim and a Chinese.

After we put on the BN T-shirts that were given to us by the BN’s team, a lot of PKR supporters shouted bad and foul words because they said that we are supporting a non-Muslim.

Some old men even stuck their tongues out at me, which is very rude.

Will Hannah Yeoh call them racist and tweet about it?

But of course Hannah Yeoh won’t call them racist because they are Pakatan members and supporters!





Photos: PRK Kajang Election Day Experience

24 03 2014
The best PRK Kajang poster.

The best PRK Kajang poster.

Yesterday morning, we drove around Kajang to see what’s happening on the election day of the N25 Kajang seat.

We shouted words of support to the BN teams of supporters whenever we saw them waving BN flags by the roadside.

The BN team waving BN flags.

The BN team waving BN flags.

It was fun, we put on the BN T-shirts that were given to us as we drove and somebody gave us a BN flag that my sister waved from inside the car.

PRK Kajang - election day.

PRK Kajang – election day.

As my father drove slowly and we were shouting, “Hidup BN” to the BN team, a BN supporter threw me a BN t-shirt from across the street to my car window and they shouted happily when I managed catch it.

We even got a BN umbrella, BN caps and even three kangkungs and shouted of foul words from the PKR supporters!

n

PKR members bring kangkung everywhere, I guess PKR members love kangkung so much that they can’t live without it.

I was very excited to see the BN’s candidate, Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun talking to BN team by the roadside.

She and the BN team waved at us excitedly when they heard us shouting, “Hidup BN!” and waving the BN flag from our car.

Sadly, we did not stop so that my sisters and I can’t take a photo with her.

A woman wearing a hat.

A woman wearing a summer hat, maybe she was not given a PKR cap by her father.

By the way, we passed Nurul Izzah as she walked to meet the PKR team wearing a summer hat.

Though my father can’t vote for he is not a Kajang resident, but it’s fun giving support to the BN teams who worked very hard under the blazing sun.

But at the end of the day, it is very sad to see that the people of Kajang are supporting nepotism that is freely practised by PKR and its allies, PAS and DAP.
