Tun Dr Mahathir, From A Statesman To A Street Demonstrator

three

Above are three images of ‘the new Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’ after he left UMNO, the party that once made him the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

The first image was taken at the High Court of Kuala Lumpur on September 5, 2016, when he made a surprise court visit in support of Anwar Ibrahim, during Anwar’s NSC suit.

It was Dr Mahathir who sacked Anwar Ibrahim from the Deputy Prime Minister post before Anwar was sent to jail.

The second image was taken on November 19, 2016, during the illegal Bersih 5 demonstration in Kuala Lumpur.

Taking part in Bersih for the second time, Dr Mathathir seems to have mastered the art of street demonstration.

In the photo, Mahathir, wearing a Bersih 5 t-shirt was seen shouting like a mad demonstrator, when during his days as the Prime Minister, he was against demonstrations and looked down at demonstrators.

The third image shows Dr Mahathir proudly wears a ‘Free Anwar Now’ badge, another odd situation after what he did and said about Anwar when he was still in power.

What is happening to Dr Mahathir?

Dr Mahathir was once a statesman and condemned Bersih demonstrators as wanting to topple a legally elected government.

But now he eagerly took part in the illegal Bersih demonstration which was led by the party that he once hates. 

Like Bersih leaders, he too wants and trying hard to bring down the legally elected government; an action which he used to condemn.

He had changed from a statesman to a street demonstrator, taking part in an illegal demonstration to topple a legal government.

Dr Maharhir had changed from a great and smart leader to a person easily used by his enemy turns ally, as claimed by “DAP’s Superman” Hew Kuan Yau.

According to Hew Kuan Yau, DAP is only using Mahathir to bring down Najib.

Dr Mahathir used to say that,” Melayu mudah lupa” but now it is clear that it is actually Mahathir who mudah lupa.

Now Dr Mahathir sudah lupa who voted him to power, his stance about street demonstrations, who DAP really is, the agendas behind Bersih and he even forgets what is Act 355 which was amended twice during his tenure as the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Act 355: Interfaith Group’s Statement Risks Weakening Constitutional Liberties

What is the problem with some non-Muslims when the Muslims tries to strengthen the teaching of Islam in an Islamic country?

Why must non-Muslims oppose laws that only affect the Muslims?

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) opposes the private member’s bill regarding the Act 355 or Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 tabled by PAS President, Datuk Seri Haji Hadi, reported Malay Mail Online on May 31, 2016.

According to Malay Mail Online, MCCBCHST claimed that, “…. the proposed law risks weakening the country’s constitutional liberties, including religious freedom.”

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) expressed today its opposition to the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) (Amendment)Bill 2016, and warned that the proposed law risks weakening the country’s constitutional liberties, including religious freedom.

~Malay Mail Online.

In the first place I wonder if the council leaders understand Dato’ Seri Haji Hadi’s Private Member’s Bill and the Act 355 before making the statement.

As I wrote in, “Akta 355: DAP MPs, Please Do Your Homeworks”,  the Private Member’s Bill  is not about proposing a new Act but it is about amending an existing Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, which is to increase the Syariah Courts punishments that are currently limited to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years or with a fine not exceeding five thousand ringgit or with whipping not exceeding six strokes or with any combination thereof.

So how can the Bill, “risk weakening the country’s constitutional liberties, including religious freedom“?

Firstly, since Act 355 is an existing Act about criminal jurisdiction of the Syariah Courts which only affects persons professing the religion of Islam, how could the increase of the Syariah Courts current existing punishments weakens the country’s constitutional liberties, including religious freedom when the Bill will empowers the teaching of Islam for the Muslims and has nothing to do with people professing other religions?

Instead, the Bill will strengthen the “constitutional liberties,  including religious freedom” of the Muslims because it will give more constitutional rights for the Muslims in professing the true teaching of Islam and to curb deviant teachings that claimed to be the true Islamic teaching.

So, will that pose problems to the council?

In fact, it is MCCBCHST that is “weakening the country’s constitutional liberties, including religious freedom” by interfering into the internal matter of the Muslims and denying the constitutional rights of the Muslims to manage their own religion.

Article 11(3) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia:

Every religious group has the right— to manage its own religious affairs;

So, in my opinion, since the council does not represent the Muslims and the Bill will not effect the people of religion groups represented by the council the council has no constitutional rights to intervene in the matters of the Muslims and to tell the Muslims how to manage Islam. 

Also said in the same article by Malay Mail Online:

“It has the potential to undermine religious freedom and fundamental liberties as enshrined in Part II of the Constitution. The Non-Muslim’s position too would be in jeopardy under Hudud and they would not have equal rights if implemented,” the group said in a statement.

~Malay Mail Online

I do not understand why the leaders of the council group are so opposed to the Bill that not only will give so much advantages for to the Muslims but also very positive impacts to the society because a Muslims who observes the true teaching of Islam will be a very good citizen and will obey the law of our country.  

So I wonder why that will pose a problem to others.

Stating that:

“Our former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad had warned the PAS government of Kelantan in 1994 against introducing Hudud Law in the State because ‘Hudud Law punishes victims while actual criminals were often left off with minimum punishment,” it said. 

~ Malay Mail Online.

If Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad made that statement regarding the Bill, then he clearly does not understand it.

So, the council must stop listening to Tun regarding the matter and please ask for clarifications from the official authorities.

That is why Dato’ Sri Najib Razak must not listen to Tun and oppose the Private Member’s Bill just because Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad disagreed with the amendment.

It is clear that Tun Dr. Mahathir and his supporters including Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who are demanding for the Prime Minister Najib to step down, are willing to do anything to achieve their goals.

In his desperate attempt, Tun Dr. Mahathir brought his troop including Tan Sri Muhyiddin who is still an UMNO man to team up with Lim Kit Siang, Ambiga and Maria Chin whose dreams are only to kill UMNO.

What logical justification can Tun Dr. Mahathir gives about his latest move?

Mahathir was seen at Bersih’s illegal rally claiming that they are fighting for democracy; but is it democratic to force a legally elected leader to step down just because Tun wants him to step down?

This is actually an anarchy and not democracy!

What is the use of having general elections if people like Tun Dr. Mahathir and friends can just force the Prime Minister of Malaysia to step down by making some declaration?

As senior politicians Tun Dr. Mahathir and his troop can clearly see that what is happening in Egypt and Libya after the Arab Spring can also happen to us if they revolt against the legally elected government.

Indeed, they are forcing the government to spend the country’s resources to solve problems created by them when the resources should be spent on building our nation.

Please look at what is happening in Beirut, Lebanon, when the government is financially and politically weak; they cannot even solve the trash problems which has now turned into a river of trash in the middle of the city.

Do they want that to happen to us in Malaysia too?

Do they care about us?

It is hard to see that they actually care about what will happen to the people whom they claim that they are fighting for, but instead they are using the people for their own agendas.

Anarchist politics will only destroy our country because the same action will happen again and again and there will be no strong government to lead and take care of us.

Tun M and TMI vs Bukit Aman

Insider 17

The Malaysian Insider (TMI) reported that the police went to Tun Dr. Mahathir’s office in Kuala Lumpur on November 6, 2015.

It is understood that the police team, led by Supt Azham Othman had posed 45 questions to Dr Mahathir over alleged statements he made against the country’s leadership and other related issues including the Bersih 4 rally. – TMI

TMI also wrote that, “the authorities opened several investigation papers after reports were made against Dr Mahathir, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said last month”.

Next, TMI reported that, “Dr Mahathir stays mum, up to police to consider arrest”.

Insider 18

And Tun M decided not to answer questions asked by the police.

“They asked questions and I said I will not answer. I don’t censor anything,” – Tun M (TMI)

Then the next day, on November 7, TMI again posted another article about Tun M questioning, “reports in government-linked newspapers reporting that the country was not heading into a financial crisis.”

Insider 19TMI reported Tun M argued, “if everything is fine, why did Putrajaya arrest people for sabotaging the banking and financial system of the country”.

TMI also wrote that, “Dr Mahathir said there appear to be a loss of confidence in the government that was precipitated by the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal”.

He said there was “the inability to service debts, disappearance of money, cash in the private accounts of the PM, its subsequent disappearance, inability to explain US$100 million, the Budget 2016 monetary gifts, shrinking national resources, questionable use of EPF and KWAP funds, poor FDI, etc.” “So all cannot be well. Who is responsible? Cannot be some non entity! – Tun M (TMI).

Now in the first place, why didn’t Tun M answer the questions asked by the police when the next day he made more accusations about the PM?

If his accusations are true, why didn’t he tell the police everything he knows and give them all the evidences to support his words so that the police can take action and investigate the matter?

Or is it because he has no evidence?

He understands the law, so why haven’t he taken proper actions rather than giving speeches and talking about the same thing over and over again everyday without showing any concrete evidence?

And why did Tun M do not cooperate with the police who are actually doing their work?

What is he trying to prove when he told the reporters that he doesn’t care, “if anyone is going to arrest him”? 

Is anybody trying to imply that the police went there to arrest Tun M or sort of police abusing their power?

And it gets funnier when even Anwar Ibrahim from the Sungai Buloh Prison defended Tun M, saying that Tun M committed no crime.

Now, when the police received a report, they must investigate; but when they investigate, unfortunately people like Anwar blamed the police for doing what they have to do.

Now, does Anwar want to stop the police from doing their work?

As written in the first TMI’s article above, the police were there only to investigate, and not to arrest or to question Tun M because they accused Tun M committed a crime; but why must TMI brought up the possibilities of Tun be arrested?

Is Tun M, TMI and people around him trying to blame the police over this matter and saying that PM Najib uses the police to arrest innocent people who criticise the PM?

And another thing, why must Tun M be the judge and blame the authorities in the case of Khairuddin and Mathias Chang and not wait for the case to be judge in court?

Please stop tarnishing the reputation of other parties to make us look good or to prove that we are right.

I’m sad to see Tun M tarnishing his own good name and I hope Tun M will be given hidayah, amin.

Tun Dr. Mahathir, “Kalau Marahkan Nyamuk Jangan Bakar Kelambu”

CNksMzDUkAAs0UN

Tun Dr. Mahathir became the Prime Minister because UMNO won the general election; but what has he done now?

Is it fair for him to be at the illegal demonstration that was powered by DAP, the opposition party that does not respect Islam as the religion of the Federation, against the Article 153, hated the Sedition Act that protects the 4 sensitive issues and trying to erase the history that Malaysia was born from Tanah Melayu?

He tarnishes his own dignity and integrity as a Muslim leader because we know who is behind Bersih.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend?

As a Muslim, Tun must understand that, the end could not justify the means?

Tun lost his credibility as an UMNO leader by showing his support to the people who hated UMNO and openly humiliate UMNO.

He knows that the people behind Bersih are also fighting for LGBT rights, against Article 153, slander JAKIM and the Sultans especially the Sultan of Selangor.

Mahathir does not mind hurting the Muslims who supported him and he does not mind to put himself down to the level of LGBT fighters just because he hates Prime Minister Najib and wants to put him down.

Tun Dr. Mahathir, “Kalau marahkan nyamuk jangan bakar kelambu”; do not destroy our country just because of your hate for Najib.

Two wrongs don’t make a right.

Revenge is bad and I do not believe in revenge.

Is Marina Mahathir Scared Of Hudud?

Mmo

Referring to the article above, I have several questions for Marina Mahathir, who is a daughter of former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

  1. What kind of Muslim is Marina, to say that she wants to leave Malaysia if hudud is implemented in this country?
    A Muslim should be happier when Islamic law is implemented in his or her country. It will be safer for them because it can turn our country into a more peaceful country. 
  2. “I cannot live in a country where people want to cut off hands, I’m sorry, or stone people to death,” Marina told Malay Mail Online in a recent interview here. What does she understand about Islam and hudud?
    I’m sorry for her because at her age, she still does not understand Islam and the Islamic law; but yet she still want to talk about hudud as if she is an expert on the subject.
  3. Is she scared of hudud? Has she done something wrong that might cause her to be punished under hudud?
    Contrary to what Marina thinks, Islamic law is fair and just. Islam is a peaceful religion.
  4. Marina claims to be a Muslim activist fighting for Muslim rights through an NGO called Sisters in Islam. Why would an ‘Islamic’ activist hate the Islamic law?
    I hope that Marina will understand that it is wrong for a Muslim to belittle the Islamic law.
  5. “She said the Iranian women, who were middle-class elites living in New York, had sounded bitter and were aggressive about keeping religion out of everything, noting that their counterparts had stayed back in Iran and fought from within, when women’s rights were rolled back after Iran became an Islamic state following the 1979 revolution.” Does Marina understand the difference between Syiah and Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah?
    Syiah is a deviant teachings which claims to be as a part of Islam. The rules of Syiah is against the rules of Islam. Like other liberals and plurals Marina does not understand Islam. Not only they refer Syiah as a part of Islam, but they are also forcing the Malaysian government to accept the teaching of Syiah as part of Islam; but at the same time they complain about the Syiah law as practiced in Iran.
  6. “It’s natural to me, if I see something wrong, to say something, or to do something,” said Marina. Does she see hudud as “something wrong”?
    If she does, I’m so sorry for her.
  7. “It’s a form of worship. It’s how I act out my life as a Muslim. If you say it’s a way of life, it’s not just about rituals. It’s acted out by trying to do good, to be charitable and to ensure justice,” she added. Is Marina trying to tell others how a Muslim should lives their life?
    A person with no proper knowledge on a subject must not talk as if they are an expert on that subject. Marina who fights for lots of things that is against Islam such as LGBT rights, liberalism and pluralism of religion should not talk about Islam as if she really understands Islam better than others.
