For the Reform Agenda:

Hunt Down Shahidan Kassim

*

Image result for shahidan kassim

The forces that destroyed the lives of Indira Gandhi and her children and that of Chen Yimin (陈乙敏) as well are the same forces at work with that man above: that piece of kampung pig head and motherfucker named Shahidan Kassim. Versus the cocksure, lawyering, liberal types, Syah Redzan, below, guess who’s going to win?

Syahredzan

The War Against Man, Against Malays

In Malaysia, God Opens a New Front

*

Normal people would consider Shahidan Kassim a whacko and so are likely to ignore or dismiss his threat to hunt down atheists (remarks on YouTube), Malays in particular, to ‘bring them back and fix their faith’.

There are two lines of possible defense for Shahidan:

(a) he has a constitutional point of view to do something about atheists, and

(b) he has a Muslim leader role to safeguard the interests of the ummah, the Muslim collective, an argument that runs something like, On ‘judgement day’ he will be asked by Allah what he had done for Malay-Muslims (don’t laugh, that’s what he said).

Shahidan isn’t the only official who wants to beat up other people because they aren’t like him; a day before him there was Rizal Mansor, some Rosmah aide it seems.

Which is to suggest that there is now a war, another Allah’s war, launched against people, atheists this time. The war begins with and focuses on Malays.

More dangerous than Shahidan, the madman, is the idea. It parallels ketuanan in its insidious quality and when rooted it becomes near impossible to pull back even though you see the devastation by ketuanan everywhere.

This havoc isn’t unlike the ones in Syria or Libya or other Muslim countries. Ketuanan’s havoc might not be scorch earth type but this also means its economic and social affliction spreads further and deeper against the individual souls. Common to both in their self-destructive capacity is, of course, Islamic culture, history, politics and society.

The plain fact is Umno and PAS, Hadi Awang and Mahathir Mohamad subscribe to the same religious dogma that fuels ISIS terror. It is the same Allah they pray to, the same Allah whose name they invoke when hunting atheists or chopping heads. ISIS and Shahidan work out of, and flow from, the same religious principle — the ummah.

Malaysia’s Constitution, where Shahidan is concerned, is merely added justification used to fit a multi-religious context.

Like Rizal, Shahidan might be wrong but it didn’t matter. Saying it, he takes Malays and Malaysia not to uncharted territory — it is on the same grounds of apostasy and ummah preservation. Shahidan simply slipped in via another door so as to build a case to deal with people who talk too much and take too much personal liberties he doesn’t like, possibly even to jail some of them. This is an old war fought on a new front.

That he has to invoke the Constitution and then some voodoo Judgment Day, with some fictitious demand by some fictitious god, shows he wants to give law a moral compunction: Religion is not refutable since it is never demonstrated truth in the first place. Thus, Shahidan (and those muftis) can say anything he likes and he will even get away with murder, like ISIS and like Arab towel heads.

What does Shahidan want out of his anti-atheism? Only he knows the answer. But, for sure, it keeps Malays as Muslims, even if nominally, and it keeps up with the high Muslim population relative to the Chinese and others. That, in its turn, provides the political and electoral objectives for the survival and existence of Umno and PAS. It’s this political objective that explains the war language tone in Shahidan’s ‘hunt them‘ and in Rizal’s ‘plague of atheism‘.

Consequently, political parties with a religious objective is antithetical to a secular constitution. Whereas secularism attempts to order life and a nation from a non-religious standpoint, Umno and PAS are forever trying to introduce religious injunctions into the constitution so that on point of fact, and law, those parties are anti-constitutional and must be abolished.

Below, from Twitter, Malay responses to Shahidan

Tweets like those above aren’t arguments but are merely little bullet blanks — only longer in blog postings — fired to make a sound without impact against the Shahidan proposal.

Like it is with numerous life and death issues, and against a formidable, insidious enemy such as god, Malaysia’s tweets and blogs reduce Shahidan to a war of words without attrition, just so for entertaining their reader fans.

As a result, Shahidan gets away with persecuting the innocent, people who, as with pregnant, single Malay girls or a kampung child, have done nobody no harm. This is just so wrong, yet, nobody — these stupid Anglophiles, so full of righteousness — takes it up against Shahidan personally. Who the fuck does he think he is!

Not all opinions are equal

There is a sense of weirdness in Shahidan’s anti-atheism.

Apostasy, in which a previously professed God is renounced, is the opposite to joining faith which, in turn, is typically signified by a declaration in speech or acts (such as baptism) or both. But atheism requires none of the above. It’s purely an internal process, an idea held in the heart or mind or soul, any of which, if it were to give oral expression to the thought, simply says, ‘Nah, I don’t believe in god.‘ It never says which or what god, and this is the crux of the matter.

Shahidan aims to root out that Thought.

Like, if you were to land in Mars then stumbling on something that has never existed on earth, you first have to give it a name — see, naming is the beginning of things. God is such a thing. Which then leads to the question, how do you express something that isn’t there? The next best thing, where Shahidan is concerned, is to demand a public confession from an atheist of a belief in no god; there is simply no other way to secure a conviction. Any which way you look at it, in both Shahidan’s objective and method, he is identical to the communist tyranny of Stalin and Pol Pot who typically employs the device of a TV confession followed by jail, when not executed.

The result of Shahidan’s threat? Liberal Malays scramble around like frightened rats and you see this in their tweets (above) because, foremost in their minds, they are asking: Is Shahidan and Umno and Jakim out to get me?

Take Syahredzan. Getting cold feet, he blabbers away, How did I show I am atheist? (tweet above). This reduces his only defense to within the ground rules set up by Shahidan. Which is this, a Malay believes only in Allah; that or declare yourself an apostate and believe in another God. No third option here.

It’s an absurd proposition but there you have it because, to rub salt to the injury, Shahidan says the Constitution is silent on atheism. Therefore — and this is where a Malaiyoo coconut head like him fails the logical test — the Law, the man adds, does not permit No Belief! In other words, Silence = Refusal. (There is more to be said about his argument but we’ll leave it at that. The point? What a fucking pig head: were these Malaiyoo Cabinet members born out of their mothers’ asses? Poop….)

Worse is to come for the like of Syah Redzan, Shahidan could make atheism a criminal offense, after the TV confession of course.

Atheism requires some elaboration alongside its associated concept, apostasy, because these things don’t exist in the Far East Asian lexicon, languages, traditions and thoughts, at least not until the arrival of Scottish and Orang Putih motherfuckers.

Within both Islamic and Christianity dogma contains the tyrannical idea that there is only ‘One True God’ and no other. This tyranny is central. It gave rise to religious regulations subsequently extended to criminal laws that are associated with chopping heads and ISIS terror. All of which are linked to the Arabic life styles concerning terms such as murtad (apostate), munafik (Muslim by pretense or appearances only) and especially kafir (non-believer, that’s believing in other gods).

From Christians such as Yeo Bee Yin or Hannah Yeoh their equivalent of the murtad, for example, is the Infidel (it’s in the Bible). This is completely anti-Confucian and anti-Chinese because we never classify people in such moralistic terms. It goes to explain why in China, for example, we despise Christianity because it breaks up families into categories with which Christians then act according to the divisions. This way of life is identical to the Islamic way, to the way PAS and Umno do things and treat people.

It is this context that Shahidan is going after atheists because, where the previous case concerns deviancy or belief in other gods, atheism is belief in no god; god being either Allah or Jesus.

Atheism changes apostasy’s ground rules entirely because where, previously, it was a choice of gods, now it is a choice between God and no God. But here is the stickler affecting atheism: No Belief has to, in the first place, presume the existence of God (recall the Mars analogy). The issue with atheism is, belief or no belief, not the existence of God; that is supposed to be a given. That is, you can only disbelieve a god after you first acknowledge there is even a god. Put another way, you cannot not (double negative) believe unless there is something to believe in, yes?

So, which God is being denied? As laid out in western liberalism, subscribed today by Malays like Syah Redzan, atheism became a denial of one of the Judeo-Christian/Islamic gods: Allah, Jehovah, Jesus or whatever names were given them.

In Chinese and other Asian traditions, there was no One True God to begin with. So how could we be atheist? That, as the equivalent of a negation on a negation, what’s there to deny? On a thing that isn’t there? On a Nothing?

Anglophiles, both Christian Chinese and liberal Malays, Syah Redzan likewise, these great God apologists, find themselves trapped in this merry-go-round, circular syllogism which they cannot get out of. In such a situation, other Malays, the PAS and Umno types, whip out their Quran (or Bible by the DAP Christians) to find answers for out-of-god questions — you see in the tweets above. (But can you see their stupidity?)

Where does this leave Anglophiles? Short answer, nowhere: ‘Sit tight, Syah, no worry, you don’t need to do anything; Shahidan will come knocking.

To save their asses, they might even resort to Shahidan’s defense, saying, for example, atheism is not against law, yada, yada, yada, so that this is purely a single man’s point of view. That is, Shahidan is entitled to an opinion, as if all opinions are equal and, therefore, it deserves by right to be treated equally, with equal claim to being true or right.

This ‘entitled to his opinion‘ cliche, followed by the other ‘respect his opinion‘ cliche, presumes there is any logical, rational or evidential basis in Shahidan’s anti-atheism and therefore presumes the man’s campaign is a serious candidate for truth, hence implementation, when, instead, all that it amounts to is a tyrannical, fascist absurdity which not only devalues good opinion but is especially cruel to people and deserves to be pummeled to death, along with the Shahidan fucker.

Syah Redzan’s greatest fear is, he has no defense because, once in the realm of the Abrahamic faiths, he is stuck on its terms and those terms involve life, limbs, and death.

This is why, although Islam and Christianity are both dangerous to Malaysia and so utterly inhumane, it is despairing to see Opposition politicians plunging headlong into some foreign religious morality then invoking it to save Malaysia, on the assumption that you can’t be good without the Bible or the Quran. That is, they say, Najib Razak is an abnormality, a deviant of righteousness when on point of fact he is instead a devout follower of Wahhabism along with its Arabic creeds, and so deserves to be treated with contempt. (Not 1MDB, that’s a side show.)

The notion that good can only come out of the Quran (or the Bible) is fucking absurd. We, the Chinese, have 3,000 years to prove that though without Allah, without Jesus, or because we are accused of being ungodly — or ‘Atheism’ if that’s what Anglophiles and Malays prefer — our Confucianism and Daoism treat people far, far better as humans than all the centuries of Christianity and Islam stacked up. For example, we see ourselves as open to being wrong and vulnerable because ‘learning’, ‘experiences’ and ‘growing up to be human’ are never complete and never ceases until death. This is what a Chinese education and Confucianism teach us.

A human being is not borne out of a machined mold into which the godly of Malaysia attempt to fit other people back in. The west is only beginning to discover — Cogito Zero Sum — what we, Chinese, have been saying for millennia:

To learn is to accept that one’s growth—the endless process of becoming who they will be—depends on engaging the strangeness within themselves (the part that is perpetually open, unpredictable) as much as interacting with a strange world of knowledge that they can absorb but never know in its entirety on their own. They must share in it with others. It belongs to no one, and so it belongs to everyone; this is the radically communist (or “commonist”) core of learning itself. The same goes for consciousness and selfhood: both are open things, and both are as dependent on you as they are on other people.

That, however, has yet to catch on among Anglophiles in Malaysia, these cultural copycats. So they continue to follow the Islamic and Judeo-Christian traditions under which their conduct, that is, their acts and words that they exhibit, have already been determined beforehand, depending on whether (if at all) they read the Bible or the Quran. Those are their ultimate and only reference points. Hence, Shahidan says Islam has this instruction so he goes up and down the country hunting for atheists — to ‘fix’ them! Is there, truly, in this world any greater motherfucker.

To make matters worse in Malaysia, this fucking God is in the Constitution and the Rukun Negara, both ready now at the beck and call of Shahidan, Hadi Awang, et al, for use to grind you, Syah Redzan and others to dust.

The like of Perkasa and Ibrahim Ali, even the PKR and DAP, think that the Constitution is guarantor of the Malay life. Yes and true, a fucked up life if that’s what Malays want. It’s defective, full of holes, any of which is now the curse of the Malays and should be ripped apart if Harapan truly and rationally have people’s welfare at heart.

Here’s a warning to Shahidan Kassim, et al: Don’t touch any Chinese, and don’t take this warning lightly. We now play for keeps, you piece of motherfucker.

Zahid’s Karma

Zahid Hamidi’s conduct (below) has the streak which we, in Chinese, say 没有底线 meiyou dixian — no bottom line. Umno has no bottom line; Zahid has no bottom line. If, from now on, anything goes then everything about Umno go, starting with that man.

https://i.malaysiakini.com/1136/49e63443e1ed9cb2e60401e22db20b31.jpeg

Perhaps, he believes such a thing will appeal to Umno members, their minds conditioned as they are. But we, who have been abused so much over our ICs, why don’t we feel vindicated?

On the contrary, should Zahid next pass by Bagan Datoh, might he please stop a moment so that we can shit into his filthy Javanese tongue. His Chinese foster parents will see they have a pig gone berserk in their house.

Even for prime minister material, supposedly, Zahid doesn’t seem to see the far-reaching consequences that will likely flow from his shock-and-awe, and how it will affect people from the Malay sultans down. At its dead-end, Zahid would be shoveling Arabic dung for the rest of his Umno days.

Has he no idea, or a vague idea, what it is he has done? Karma is a real bitch and, guaranteed, it will return to bite him — as it did to Mahathir Mohamad. Zahid has set in motion his own cycle of demise, and now there’s no going back.

The sting in Zahid’s attack wasn’t whether or not Mahathir was of Indian therefore pendatang ancestry (so what?) but it was in Umno’s self-annihilating fascism: only Malays will serve and ‘protect’ Malays. Standing on this racial platform, it was easy for Zahid to next step up and accuse Mahathir, by pretending to be Malay, of exploiting Malay power, position and Malay privileges. The Malay, because it is a political term, comes and goes.

Personal identity, as represented by an IC or not, blue or black, it doesn’t matter, has long been in Malaysia an instrument of oppression. Those who protest against Zahid, whether Mahathir in his own defense or others, have not pointed this out.

They complain instead about the meaning of names even though whether it is ‘anak lelaki‘ or ‘bin‘, Mahathir remains, as personal and historical fact, the child of a pendatang.

Why don’t they see it? Perhaps they don’t want to. To save Malaysia, removing that instrument of oppression must be a beginning step, after which the bone of contention over who will better serve Malays, and how, will fade away. And, along with it, the dichotomy of meritocracy vs privileges.

Letter to Lilan 報丽兰書

*

丽兰好兄妹

您好

Xiaodi had been meaning to speak you in person, as a tongzhi 同志, since Zhao Mingfu 赵明福 was killed. That it has come belatedly is partly because I have just been able to wrench myself away from the burdens of my responsibilities. Yet, sitting down to write, the heart manages to find only reticence to speak of your brother, to speak to you, your family and Soh Cher Wei.

In Mingfu’s death, Sima Qian 司马迁 comes to mind, specifically his Letter to Ren An 報任安書》:

人固有一死,死有重於泰山,或輕於鴻毛,用之所趨異也。[In translation] A man dies only once. His death may be a matter weighty as Mount Tai or light as a feather. It all depends on the reason for which he dies.

[Alternate last line: It is how he uses that death that makes all the difference.]

有的人说 死亡等於回歸到一種無知、無識、無感、無覺的狀態。這原無什麼價值可言。可是如果我們進一步追問:我願意為什麼而死

Those words subsequently gave rise to a proverb in Japan: “Death is lighter than a feather, duty heavier than a mountain.” 義は険しい山よりも重く、死は大鳥の羽よりも軽い

But, it’s the supreme irony that, driven to a frenzy with these words, Japanese soldiers killed more than 23 million Chinese and those were the days of bayonets and guns. No atom bomb. Are Chinese lives so cheap? Our people alone accounted for half the 45-48 million WWII deaths and not even a stone memorial, not a single word of remorse from Japan, no compensation, nothing. Instead, the world continue to vilify us, speak of us as aggressors, and America enlists Japan to issue threats every year. You can see why we, the Chinese, China, will never, never, never let it happen to us again, tomorrow or forever.

China’s PLA celebrated its 90th anniversary most recently. With this greatly increased military capability, along with enormous economic strides at our Motherland, our people have reasons to be proud. We, as Chinese, want to leave behind not only a pathway of progress but especially we want to ensure, as best as it’s possible, that the safety and security of our future generations will also be provided for.

In your brother’s death, and like Sima Qian’s letter to a dear friend, one is reminded of his final note addressed to Auyong Hian Wah:

欧阳:
他们 在没有复制我的电脑文件下取走了所有电脑。矛头一直指向你。
对不起。
不懂装懂,结果连累了你。
我说,mendapat lulusan YB。他们硬打成mengikut arahan YB.
我帮不到你,抱歉。
对不起,我很累了,再见。

“All spears are pointed at you! 矛头一直指向,”  Mingfu wrote. Yet — and here’s another irony — it was against him that death visited.

Similar circumstances had confronted Ren An (or 任少卿 Ren Shaoqing) when, with spears pointed at him and death near, Sima Qian, himself in a dire situation, could only help by writing the letter. That was enough, although we’ll never know if Ren An received the letter. But, that for 2,000 years our forefathers have so diligently passed it down to us, we know today from death a little more about life.

Not until much, much later did Hian Wah received your brother’s note. Like the apology to Ren An, there’s in it this: 我帮不到你,抱歉。对不起,我很累了,再见.

We are a people sentenced to death at the instance of birth.

This seems meaningless. But, we now know from Sima Qian and others, it is life that acquires for death its depth of meaning, gives it insight and a purpose. Mingfu must have understood this because he spoke on terms that concern friendship and loyalty, devotion and duty, the same terms understood by our ancestors and which Confucius have taught us. Their formulations for life have stood with us in good stead, and with Mingfu as well, never mind what the judges at the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) might say about his ‘state of mind’ (below). Those are, in spite of their learning, naive and ignorant people, unable to understand why it is in life are the reasons for death made. They may be skilled in law and in analysis, but they have none of the insights into life to sustain and to support their skills.

How Mingfu was murdered is, however, a different matter altogether.

That’s a matter of law with which, because one has no control over, you must therefore fight tirelessly for it to come alive since Mingfu’s death eight years ago.

Law in Malaysia, as it is in the West, creates government, becomes its function in turn, is controlled therefore by it and, before that, by legislature. Essentially, that is, by politics. (Increasingly, though, law is religion, that is, Islam.) In our Chinese, Confucian jurisprudence culture, law or 法规 fagui is purely a product, an instrument of governance and so does not construct or determine anything. Thus, in that bewildering state, you must appeal to Law in Malaysia, being maker of and being made by politics, for the justice it is suppose to uphold and then, through it, find reasons for Mingfu’s death.

The world will never come to understand, not even remotely, your brother’s ordeal and pain, nor his duty and devotion because no one else had lived his life, died his death, and never will. When Law failed to offer justice, and when the reason for your brother’s death is not satisfactorily answered — 死了不明死了不白 — you must return to the beginning of all things: politics; this is what, I believe, you mean by campaigning against Najib Razak.

But, 丽兰, we do know!

We know everything and, knowing everything, it tears and wrings out and pounds our hearts, yours most especially.

We not only know how death took place — and this was the easy part to understand — we also know the reasons for his death, these being the same reasons he had lived, being Chinese, in keeping with his duties as colleague, friend, son, husband, brother. Your brother. This is why it so pains us, horribly, to see that the price of duty should be as heavy as Mount Tai — true today as it was in Sima’s time 2,000 years ago — and why being Chinese has come to be fatal, today as it was in 1969 and when the Japanese invaded.

But, understanding this, requires us as Chinese never to cease to live as we are because it is our life; it belongs to no government nor political party. Malay lives might belong to Umno, but our lives belong to no one, including the DAP.

The justice you seek and the Law you seek invoked might deliver to us the actual officers who murdered Mingfu but we want more than that. We especially want the Thing that brought him to the offices of the MACC. We want the Thing, the system, elusive as it is, that delivered his killers. It’s the same idea contained in the wish of a father wanting the person who hired the policemen to kill his daughter Altantuyaa. Without getting to it, the injustice will only continue; of this I’m convinced.

The price of duty is as heavy as Taishan 泰山, above.

A Government Gone Amok

What is the ‘Thing‘ I speak of?

Before Mingfu was taken, the MACC also took Tan Boon Wah and Dariff Din against both of who interrogators typically started and continued on this line of interrogation: “you orang Cina?” followed by “you dari Cina?

None of which had, of course, to do with some alleged misappropriation of 2,400 ringgit at Hian Wah’s office. Dariff Din got away only because, on his father’s side, he was Malay. Against Boon Wah, they told him repeatedly, Cina bodoh” as if that will made his interrogators clever.

There is every reason to believe, therefore, your brother’s death has to do with the same racial motivation that had set up Hian Wah as a target.

In that year, 2009, and this is long before the 1MDB and a year after the 12th General Elections, Mahathir Mohamad was already attacking Najib Razak on the grounds he was giving in too much to the Chinese and to Singapore, also Chinese. Recall the Utusan Melayu inflammatory banner: ‘Apa lagi Cina mahu’? Najib’s answer to such repeated criticisms from both Mahathir and from the Malay ground is now self-evident: it was to pick on the DAP, using anything to pin it down. Such were the circumstances in Mingfu’s death that the RCI never dwelled on and never looked into.

Chinese and Malay meet only once every four, five years when we queue up to vote. The rest of the time, we stay apart to avoid, for the Chinese, stepping on the Malay tails. We run our own schools, observe our custom, we don’t proselytize and we restrict our lives to ourselves, mind our own business, pay our rents without asking for subsidies, but they still won’t leave us alone as if our existence is itself a poison.

I believe this anti-Chinese racism is what caused Mingfu’s death, as well as hundreds and thousands before him. Supporting this racism wasn’t confined to the MACC and its officers. Here’s one and that’s from a supposed liberal named Mariam Mokhtar. Petra Kamarudin, also supposedly a liberal, has turned out to be thoroughbred fascist. The fault didn’t just lay among Malays; Anglophiles actually deepened it: Lim Kit Siang by asking to be Chinese second even though the Chinese were never first. Yeoh Tseow Suan’s response was to renounce her Chinese ancestry and to be born again as Hannah Yeoh, as Anglophile, after which she’d transfer her anti-Chinese racism to her child as Anak Malaysia, even refusing her an Indian name (the father’s). She is today called Shay Adora. Hannah’s Christianity is today interpreted as a Chinese affront against Malay’s Islam even though this is not the work of the Chinese but Anglophiles.

Who and what creates, prop up and advances this Thing, this unseen force? Unseen because it seems to dwell and move about even outside of people.

Let me take the example of the RCI, comprised of fine people who, although had the task to establish the identity of your brother’s killers within the MACC (it had to be MACC and no where else) but turned up, incredulously, exonerating it. Not once in their findings, as I’m aware of, do they mention the word ‘race’ or ‘Malay’ or ‘Chinese’ although these are matters of established fact both before Mingfu was taken in and during numerous related interrogations. How can this fact of matter, this reality, not be buried or hidden away when a fiction takes its place? The result, predictably, was utter humbug, a Commission of Inquiry reduced to speculation, and speculating about some other worldly experiences called ‘state of mind’ that has nothing to support it.

Mingfu’s note to Hian Wah was its refutation.

 

Reread the first line: Tormented by a predicament, Mingfu experienced a change in his state of mind… ‘Tormented’, certainly; ‘predicament’ maybe. But ‘experienced’? ‘A change in state of mind?” Those are states internal to Mingfu. After this extrapolation, the RCI then indulges in platitudes that were laced in contradictions:

Passage 356: The failings in the Selangor MACC which have been identified largely rest in the operational area, contributed by inadequate training.

Several paragraphs later:

Passage 367: Our findings and recommendations are directed at the individual officers involved and are not meant to be an excoriation of the MACC as a whole per se.

In that passage, it pulls back from naming individuals, from its minimalist approach to make everything look like the mountain fell, an accident: it was a ‘failing in operational area‘, ‘inadequate training‘, there is no ‘excoriation‘ (beating something to produce a wound).

The recommendations are intended to improve and rebuild the MACC….

This isn’t an RCI. This is a Cover-Up made in the name of the King.

Those words added up, plainly said, deflected MACC responsibility for a murder committed on its premises. The sum of the findings read like it were tip-toeing between puddles of Mingfu’s blood, looking for the way out. But we know who intended death and below is that list, available from the RCI report. So many names and so useful for hiding names:

List of Killers: Primary suspects, P1, P2, P3, P4 and P5.

  • P1 Hishammuddin Hashim, MACC Selangor deputy director, the arrogant leader (now Negri Sembilan director)
  • P2 Hairul Ilham Hamzah, MACC Selangor head of investigations
  • P3 Mohd Anuar Ismail, the case officer
  • P4 Arman Alies, the bully
  • P5 Ashraf Mohd Yunus, the abuser (RCI Passage note #158:  “Of the 20 cases, 2005-2010, reported against Selangor MACC officers for assault, Ashraf was involved in 14.”)
  • P6 Nadzri Ibrahim, recorded Zhao’s statement
  • P7 Azhar Abang Mentaril, took Zhao from Ean Yong’s office to MACC
  • P8 Hafiz Izhar Idris, took Zhao from Ean Yong’s office to MACC
  • P9 Mohd Najeib Ahmad Walat, broke into the email account using Zhao’s laptop
  • P10 K. Sachianandran

We also know why this happened the way it did. Because it ultimately involves Malay power, Malay interests and Malay demands, any of which must supersede law.

From the starting position that any Malaysian government must first and foremost protect Malay interest, one arrives, at last, at the point in which the government goes amok.

Its insanity — and this isn’t anymore about superseding law — is demonstrated repeatedly. Zahid insults a man’s father as ‘Kutty’ like he were coolie. Before that, he speaks of law, indeed, the entire system that is Malaysia, as an affront, an offense, to the Malay person.  Zahid again:

Muslims must unite and agree that Islam must be respected and that we do not want any decisions made by the National Fatwa Committee to be challenged by anyone, whether an individual or a different legal system outside of the fatwa committee,

For the reason Najib won’t deliver Baginda Razak over Altantuyaa’s death, neither will he deliver Mingfu’s killers. Malay thinking about power and in regards to their being and existence has arrived at the biblical epoch which says,

I, the Malay, given and possessing dominion in this land named Tanah Melayu, am greater than all life and all things. Whoever or whatever says otherwise shall be cast aside.

Lilan, please understand this: what it means to be biblical, these despicable Christians. Mingfu’s life is worth far less today than at the time of the RCI and at the time of his death, and before even that. One can see how, beginning from Mahathir — did he not see this coming? — step by step, generation following generation, we’d reach the point in which life’s purpose in death is reduced to just this: the Malaysian IC.

We, the Chinese, have been very reverent of law as we had for centuries when the Jins, the Mongols and Manchus ruled our motherland. We are model citizens because our ancestors since Kongzi have instructed us to first understand where we stand, that is, our station in life, and on that position we must excel. But, what if the law has no reverence for our lives?

This, today, is our problem though: it is not to Fate with which we are born; it is to Fate to which we now die. The determination of our station in life is being wrested from our hands, Lilan, and we must resist at all costs lest our children and their children suffer the more.

We each will individually resist in our own way, and we all know how, the ultimate point of which is to uproot the system and not merely defeat Najib because that is merely scratching the surface. Najib must go with or without the justice you seek but, also understand, his defeat is Mahathir’s glory and this is not necessarily to the betterment of all, ours and the Malays. Recall this principle of our lives: 对问题不对人.

Trust, therefore, your compatriots, us, to do what we must, vote how we must, conduct however our individual lives leads us. Campaign against Umno and Najib if you must, but recall that Najib’s political life isn’t our only purpose because he brings with him a train of history we seek to eradicate or, if that’s not possible, to ensure that they can go no farther and must retreat because they have gone too far. We shall help them along in their self-destruction. But I must say no more.

We do not go out looking for trouble but when it comes we fear it not.

All the Chinese are with you because Mingfu was and remains one of us. Has Laozi 老子 not said:

善行,無轍跡;
善言,無瑕謫;
善計,不用籌策;

Please pass on to your parents the greetings of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation. I can assure you that increasingly our Motherland is coming round to understand our predicament and that she stands with us, whatever direction we take, however we decide. Which is this: unlike ordinary Malays, our choices aren’t a simple matter of deciding between Najib and Mahathir and all that they each represent. Eventually, we have to defeat both and — xiaodi is sorry to have to say this — Lim Kit Siang and the DAP Christians are getting in the way.

对不起我用英文写,我相信你可以理解这个语言. Till our next life, I remain,

Yours truly,

小弟

Street performance is one of China’s oldest art traditions. Above, the 二泉映月 Moon Reflections on Two Springs was composed for the erhu around the 1930s, a time of upheaval, by a street performer much like the man above. The composition passed on but the blind musician died, still impoverished, and little about him survived except that he was called 阿炳 Ah Bing. His actual name might have been Hua Yanjun 华彦钧.

Below, the same piece performed in Vienna ages ago by the China National Orchestra.

怕你没有信 提取 報任安書

太史公牛馬走司馬遷再拜言。少卿足下:曩者辱賜書,教以慎於接物,推賢進士為務。意氣懃懃懇懇,若望僕不相師,而用流俗人之言。僕非敢如是也。僕雖罷駑,亦嘗側聞長者之遺風矣。顧自以為身殘處穢,動而見尤,欲益反損,是以獨鬱悒而無誰語。諺曰:「誰為為之?孰令聽之?」蓋鍾子期死,伯牙終身不復鼓琴。何則?士為知己者用,女為說己者容。若僕大質已虧缺矣,雖才懷隨和,行若由夷,終不可以為榮,適足以發笑而自點耳。書辭宜答,會東從上來,又迫賤事,相見日淺,卒卒無須臾之間,得竭指意。今少卿抱不測之罪,涉旬月,迫季冬;僕又薄從上上雍,恐卒然不可諱。是僕終已不得舒憤懣以曉左右,則長逝者魂魄私恨無窮。請略陳固陋,闕然久不報,幸勿過。

僕聞之:修身者,智之符也;愛施者,仁之端也;取與者,義之表也;恥辱者,勇之決也;立名者,行之極也。士有此五者,然後可以託於世,列於君子之林矣。故禍莫憯於欲利,悲莫痛於傷心,行莫醜於辱先,而詬莫大於宮刑。刑餘之人,無所比數,非一世也,所從來遠矣。昔衛靈公與雍渠同載,孔子適陳;商鞅因景監見,趙良寒心;同子參乘,爰絲變色。自古而恥之。夫以中才之人,事有關於宦豎,莫不傷氣,而況於忼慨之士乎!如今朝雖乏人,柰何令刀鋸之餘薦天下豪雋哉!

僕賴先人緒業,得待罪輦轂下,二十餘年矣。所以自惟,上之,不能納忠效信,有奇策才力之譽,自結明主;次之,又不能拾遺補闕,招賢進能,顯巖穴之士;外之,不能備行伍,攻城野戰,有斬將搴旗之功;下之,不能累日積勞,取尊官厚祿,以為宗族交遊光寵。四者無一遂,苟合取容,無所短長之效,可見於此矣。鄉者,僕亦嘗廁下大夫之列,陪外廷末議。不以此時引維綱,盡思慮。今以虧形為埽除之隸,在闒茸之中,乃欲卯首信眉,論列是非,不亦輕朝廷,羞當世之士邪!嗟乎!嗟乎!如僕,尚何言哉!尚何言哉!

且事本末未易明也。僕少負不羈之才,長無鄉曲之譽,主上幸以先人之故,使得奉薄技,出入周衛之中。僕以為戴盆何以望天,故絕賓客之知,忘室家之業,日夜思竭其不肖之材力,務壹心營職,以求親媚於主上。而事乃有大謬不然者。

夫僕與李陵俱居門下,素非相善也。趣舍異路,未嘗銜盃酒接殷勤之懽。然僕觀其為人,自奇士,事親孝,與士信,臨財廉,取予義,分別有讓,恭儉下人,常思奮不顧身以徇國家之急。其素所畜積也,僕以為有國士之風。夫人臣出萬死不顧一生之計,赴公家之難,斯已奇矣。今舉事壹不當,而全軀保妻子之臣隨而媒孽其短,僕誠私心痛之。且李陵提步卒不滿五千,深踐戎馬之地,足歷王庭,垂餌虎口,橫挑彊胡,卯億萬之師,與單于連戰十餘日,所殺過當。虜救死扶傷不給,旃裘之君長咸震怖,乃悉徵其左右賢王,舉引弓之民,一國共攻而圍之。轉鬭千里,矢盡道窮,救兵不至,士卒死傷如積。然陵一呼勞軍,士無不起,躬自流涕,沬血飲泣,張空弮,冒白刃,北嚮爭死敵者。陵未沒時,使有來報,漢公卿王侯皆奉觴上壽。後數日,陵敗書聞,主上為之食不甘味,聽朝不怡。大臣憂懼,不知所出。僕竊不自料其卑賤,見主上慘悽怛悼,誠欲效其款款之愚,以為李陵素與士大夫絕甘分少,能得人之死力,雖古之名將,不能過也。身雖陷敗,彼觀其意,且欲得其當而報漢。事已無可柰何,其所摧敗,功亦足以暴於天下矣。僕懷欲陳之,而未有路,適會召問,即以此指推言陵之功,欲以廣主上之意,塞睚眥之辭。未能盡明,明主不深曉,以為僕沮貳師,而為李陵遊說,遂下於理。拳拳之忠,終不能自列。因為誣上,卒從吏議。家貧,財賂不足以自贖,交遊莫救;左右親近不為壹言。身非木石,獨與法吏為伍,深幽囹圄之中,誰可告愬者!此正少卿所親見,僕行事豈不然邪?李陵既生降,隤其家聲;而僕又茸以蠶室,重為天下觀笑。悲夫!悲夫!事未易一二為俗人言也。

僕之先人,非有剖符丹書之功,文史星曆近乎卜祝之間,固主上所戲弄,倡優畜之,流俗之所輕也。假令僕伏法受誅,若九牛亡一毛,與螻螘何異?而世又不與能死節者比,特以為智窮罪極,不能自免,卒就死耳。何也?素所自樹立使然也。人固有一死,死有重於泰山,或輕於鴻毛,用之所趨異也。太上不辱先,其次不辱身,其次不辱理色,其次不辱辭令,其次詘體受辱,其次易服受辱,其次關木索被箠楚受辱,其次剔鬄毛髮嬰金鐵受辱,其次毀肌膚斷支體受辱,最下腐刑,極矣。傳曰:「刑不上大夫。」此言士節不可不厲也。猛虎處深山,百獸震恐,及其在阱檻之中,搖尾而求食,積威約之漸也。故士有畫地為牢勢不入,削木為吏議不對,定計於鮮也。今交手足,受木索,暴肌膚,受榜箠,幽於圜牆之中。當此之時,見獄吏則頭槍地,視徒隸則正惕息。何者?積威約之勢也。及已至此,言不辱者,所謂彊顏耳,曷足貴乎!且西伯,伯也,拘於牖里;李斯,相也,具於五刑;淮陰,王也,受械於陳;彭越、張敖,南鄉稱孤,繫獄具罪;絳侯誅諸呂,權傾五伯,囚於請室;魏其,大將也,衣赭衣,關三木;季布為朱家鉗奴;灌夫受辱居室。此人皆身至王侯將相,聲聞鄰國,及罪至罔加,不能引決自財,在塵埃之中,古今一體,安在其不辱也!由此言之,勇怯,勢也;彊弱,形也。審矣!曷足怪乎?且夫人不能蚤自財繩墨之外,以稍陵夷至於鞭箠之間,乃欲引節,斯不亦遠乎!古人所以重施刑於大夫者,殆為此也。

夫人情莫不貪生惡死,念親戚,顧妻子,至激於義理者不然,乃有所不得已也。今僕不幸,蚤失二親,無兄弟之親,獨身孤立,少卿視僕於妻子何如哉?且勇者不必死節,怯夫慕義,何處不勉焉!僕雖怯懦耎欲苟活,亦頗識去就之分矣,何至自湛溺累紲之辱哉!且夫臧獲婢妾猶能引決,況若僕之不得已乎!所以隱忍苟活,函糞土之中而不辭者,恨私心有所不盡,鄙沒世而文采不表於後也。

古者富貴而名摩滅,不可勝記,唯俶儻非常之人稱焉。蓋西伯拘而演周易;仲尼厄而作春秋;屈原放逐,乃賦離騷;左丘失明,厥有國語;孫子髕腳,兵法修列;不韋遷蜀,世傳呂覽;韓非囚秦,說難、孤憤。詩三百篇,大氐聖賢發憤之所為作也。此人皆意有鬱結,不得通其道,故述往事,思來者。及如左丘明無目,孫子斷足,終不可用,退論書策以舒其憤,思垂空文以自見。

僕竊不遜,近自託於無能之辭,網羅天下放失舊聞,考之行事,綜其終始,稽其成敗興壞之理,上計軒轅,下至于茲,為十表,本紀十二,書八章,世家三十,列傳七十,凡百三十篇,亦欲以究天人之際,通古今之變,成一家之言。草創未就,適會此禍,惜其不成,是以就極刑而無慍色。僕誠已著此書,藏諸名山,傳之其人通邑大都,則僕償前辱之責,雖萬被戮,豈有悔哉!然此可為智者道,難為俗人言也。

且負下未易居,下流多謗議,僕以口語遇遭此禍,重為鄉黨戮笑,汙辱先人,亦何面目復上父母丘墓乎?雖累百世,垢彌甚耳!是以腸一日而九回,居則忽忽若有所亡,出則不知所如往。每念斯恥,汗未嘗不發背霑衣也。身直為閨閤之臣,寧得自引深臧於巖穴邪?故且從俗浮湛,與時俯仰,以通其狂惑。今少卿乃教以推賢進士,無乃與僕之私指剌謬乎。今雖欲自彫瑑,曼辭以自解,無益,於俗不信,祗取辱耳。要之,死日然後是非乃定。書不能盡意,故略陳固陋,謹再拜。

Something ain’t right with the title. Shouldn’t it be:

Ahi’s Hot Prick!

https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQSr6Nh8M3sx-GuX6DWMVCgpVCmBlOhQWFC40JMJbBAl7HM7AKK

What’s the difference between that man in the clip below and Ahi and Sumi and ISIS?

None. There is zero difference in the attitude and Islamic worldview between the Turkish man and, running on a spectrum of Muslim bigotry, ISIS and PAS to Jakim and Ahirudin Attan or Annie of the Valley. For the simple reason, Islam isn’t for moderation; if it were, it won’t mean Submission.

But Ahi of Rocky Bru? The pig-tail liberal Malaiyoo motherfucker?

Yes, that motherfucker. Some time ago, also a Ramadan month, he complained at Rocky’s Bru that Chinese girls on the streets were dressed ‘insensitive’ (heard that word?) to Malaiyoos on supposedly a ‘holy’ month. (BTW, how does a month in a calendar become ‘holy’? Anyone know?)

And insensitive? Like the Turkish man seated behind the girl, Ahi called out on the girls, the Chinese, who wore hotpants! Tak malu, he’d say.

How then will Ahi make sure Chinese girls dress ‘sensitive’ for his sake and for Malaiyoos. Rape them? Go round town slapping people? Or, as with Jakim, put them in jail? Or, like ISIS, behead them (after the rape)?

(As an aside, we say to Ahi: try touching a Chinese girl and we’ll see what happens to you, motherfucker. Remember the Malaiyoo Uber driver?)

https://kickdefella.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/nik-aziz-rocky0105qiadah.jpg?w=500&h=333

Najib’s Umno pre-paids; at one time they belonged to Mahathir when they don’t belong to PAS. These media motherfuckers; like the Malay prostitutes of Golok, and at a price, you can buy them any time. Own them you can make them quack. Or grunt like a pig.

https://bigdogdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/c5dw4323.jpg?w=527&h=351

Ahi taking bids for a selfie fund-raiser: “Seven thousand kali ini, ten thousand esok.” Big Fat Dog thinks it’s funny.

https://i0.wp.com/careers.thestar.com.my/images/intern_sumisha.jpg?zoom=2

Sumisha Naidu, Ahi’s inheritor, not only of the same kind of prostitute media job but especially his entire worldview and value system and racist bigotry. Indeed, a whole white man’s way.

Sumi, go fuck Ahi — naturally, you’ll have to take off your hot pants. You got any hot pants, Yes? What about your color? It will show: so dark!

*

With these Malaiyoos, they, beginning with Anwar Ibrahim, imported an Arabian god named Allah and therefore brought in a whole war that had nothing to do with this part of the world. And all for what? To control the Chinese?

The Chinese were the least trouble, we knew our position in life. But, in Britain as elsewhere in Europe, Muslims arriving from Africa and Arabia have now told those White indigenous settlers: “We are taking over.” (Below.) Like Malaiyoos in Malaysia, they have declared themselves, the bumi; the native becomes the pendatang.

Matters of race and religion are not for debate because if these were matters of reason, then ISIS won’t exist (and the clip below wouldn’t have turned up), Jakim won’t be necessary, Hadi Awang dead, and Ahi would have been out of business long ago, he would have nothing to report — or blog.

This business of moderation, that is, reason, reminds of a judge trying a Malaiyoo for raping a White girl tourist in Annie’s Johor: In steaming hot Malaysia, the judge reasoned, she was insufficiently dressed. Therefore? She should take a part — provocation, the main part — of the blame.

In Malaysia, as in the Islamic world, is an inversion of reason: pendatang becomes the bumi; crime is the fault of the victim. Such a notion, finally wounding its way to the top of society, is no different should Najib Razak steal another 40 billion tomorrow. Najib: It can’t be my fault if the money is lying around enticing me. I am doing it for Islam anyway, for Umno, for Malaiyoos.

Some crimes have thus become non-crimes if you can offer justification, in Najib’s case, for a greater cause, and the greater is what Umno says it is. Other crimes become acts of righteousness when Islam is invoked and because Allah was supposed to have said so. (Long before Najib, Mahathir Mohamad led the way in this form of perverse reasoning. He still does.)

In this way, the Turkish man will argue his justification — his righteousness — for slapping anybody he dislikes, so that, arrested one minute, he is let off the next. Like he, Ahi would act, and all the Alis, and Sumisha Naidu…. Act because they are protected, not by law, not even by their reasoning, but by their immorality, the same immorality shared by judges, by policemen, found in Umno, in Najib Razak, in Mahathir. Evil becomes the ultimate good: we have arrived.

Importing wholesale this thinking, Malaysia also imports, in its entirety, a Christian-Muslim war, a Caucasian war, as Najib is today actively doing, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Yemen. Of this war, think Marawi in the Philippines (that country because of its Christianity) where guns fire away at full blast; no going back for those Pinoys. Moderation comes out of the barrel of the gun; the dead: either you or I.

Importing this value system, Malaysia raises even more bigots and, among them, a person like Sumisha (above) makes sure she stands out.

In Malaysia, thus, this value system inversion means, the more bigoted you are, the more righteous, the louder you must shout, the more faces you must slap (recall Mat Over), the more heads to chop. Criminality becomes a function of Islamic holiness, or (Sumi styled) self-righteousness.

Is there a fundamental difference then between Sumi and the Turkish motherfucker? Of course not. To Sumi, to Ahi, the Malaiyoo judge, the Turkish, the Arabs, et al other people cannot be beautiful. Only the values of Ahi and Sumi must prevail and prevail over other people.

Then to impose their bigotry they go round blaming others for their assaults, online and off, like the judge. Or like Sumi, her racism is the fault of girls who like fair skin; like Ahi, his racial intolerance is the fault of ‘insensitive’ Chinese girls with a great looking ass. Perhaps, when all that doesn’t work, they will want to chop heads as well, easy after all if heads are on people who can’t fight back.

Want to try it, Ahi, chop heads? Don’t push your luck, Malaiyoo boy; you don’t know your station in life.

To Subra, a Letter on Honesty

Dear Mr S. Subramaniam:

To you this UTM education business on Hinduism and Sikhism in its Tamadun Islam and Tamadun Asia (Titas) course modules is about (a) “pools of ignorance”, and (b) “intellectual dishonesty” in academia.

To your political colleague P. Kamalanathan it is about “misrepresentation”, which has delivered a “painful experience” that’s not to be repeated. Painful? Is pain for real?

The same arguments, almost to the near exact words, would have been said or heard five years ago or ten or 30, 50 years. And in that duration, the ignorance continues, the dishonesty repeats itself and the misrepresentation and the pain find their way into some temples, in Penang most recently, Selangor before. You know of course what happened: People wreck your gods and they piss on them. Immediately, one can imagine who would have done such a thing because, before Penang, it had happened in Kerling. Why did it happen? Is it unrelated to the UTM and its life ‘kehidupan‘ courses?

You think those acts and those courses happened from nothing? They happened from the misdeed of just one person? Or, do you still think, they stem from your notions of ignorance, intellectual dishonesty and that they are a matter of misrepresentation?

Only days earlier, PAS people, from Hadi Awang down, were pissing on the Chinese. Ismail Sabri, your Cabinet colleague no less, thinks that Muslim-Malays are the only righteous people fit to run the country. Hishammuddin Hussein, yet another Cabinet colleague of yours, has argued that Teresa Kok shouldn’t be in a mosque. There is, in H2O’s thinking, the problem of whether Teresa is sufficiently ‘clean’. Jamal Yunos, Umno divisional leader, could have been an MP, even a Minister like you. He says the Chinese are pigs — filthy. And one can go on and on but that’s already a lot of intellectual dishonesty, and they didn’t come from universities, Subra. You sit next to them every Wednesday.

Now, flip around this ‘pool of ignorance’ or this ‘misrepresentation’. Do you know what it got Vivian Lee for her ignorance? And that’s not even any sort of representation or misrepresentation that Nathan-in-a-Kamal talked about. Her’s didn’t happen in some university run by your fellow Umno Cabinet colleague. No; it was a personal, trashy, nobody-gives-a-shit Facebook page that didn’t even belong to her. And the photo on the page was what? A pot of pork meat in tea and no Melayu has to eat it, which they won’t of course. No. But, for all that: Six months, Subra. Six fucking months in the slammer for being ‘insensitive’, for being not ‘responsible’ to Malay feelings on Ramadan.

Everything in this country has to be made sensitive to Malay feelings. It is a crime to be insensitive. But for Hindu feelings or Chinese feelings, it’s purely a matter of ignorance and misrepresentation — and this is not according to them but to you — so that if you compare Vivian with Jamal or UTM then what do you get, Subra? Intellectual dishonesty? Pool of ignorance? What the fuck did you learn in school?

Ti Lian Ker may be on to something when he said — and here’s someone saying it at last:

It is rather unfortunate that Muslims, on the one hand, demand high reverence for their religion but at the same time some are loose cannons when it comes to understanding and respecting the religious practices of others.

What is he on to?

Go back to the course description (above). Is it about the philosophy of Hinduism or Sikhism? If not, what misrepresentation is there to worry? For the answer, anyway, ask a UTM student. Or try Hadi Awang in private. He’ll say to you, no, you got it all wrong thambi. It’s about the Malay life, talking about how they should view other gods, other faiths, other peoples, people like you. True or false, honest or dishonest are not in question. God, you see, is not mathematics nor reasoning, and so this UTM business has nothing to do with academic honesty or dishonesty. Creating ignorance is precisely the purpose in such courses. After which, why are you surprise someone should turn up in Penang to wreck your gods?

In Orlando, they will blow your brains out, even if you are the most honest Hindu thambi in Malaysia.

Enough therefore with your pontificating when, clearly, you can’t even convince yourself about what is it you’re saying because you are wrong and you want to be wrong. Or are you just plain stupid? To be wrong in your case is to apologize for Barisan, Umno in particular, for its racism, and to pull a cover over your association with such kinds of conduct that are completely intolerable. But you accept them, the official, unstated, unwritten policies through which institutions like UTM are created and then to serve those policies.

So, please, Subra…, cut the crap. Save it for your kids. Or your mother. Asshole!

Sincerely

rihaku

PS: What’s with people like you? You get a Minister’s job and you start to pontificate?

  • 5,000 Steven Gan news items,
  • 10,000 Helen Ang blog posts, and
  • 30,000 Bersih street marchers.

Sue the bastard.

They went first for the Melayu (above) who Umno could not and would not protect for 40 years. To come this far now, going for the Chinese today (below), must then mean that they understand the Chinese also have no protection by the DAP. At best, there will be statements to Malaysiakini. But so what? Doesn’t the Christian DAP want a clean, moral society? (bottom)

Statement or no statement, Hadi Awang, Nik Aziz, and their mullahs know they have made their point: “This is Allah’s country. If they don’t like the way it is done, the Chinese infidel can fuck off. And this goes for those stupid Hindus as well, praying to stones and trees,” says Petra Kamarudin, the mullahs’ Yang Mulia spokesman at one time.

Chinese Pays the Price for a PAS Revolution That Never Came

PAS had begun life with a proselytizing purpose on a political platform. Once this order of priorities is turned upside down, switching to politics first and missionary work second because of the Putrajaya crown, then something has to break in the party. Why? And what?

The why answer stems from the PAS presumption 30, 40 years ago that it could replicate in Malaysia, Iran before, Egypt today: it has only to install a mullah clique then wait for the revolution.

But that’s precisely the problem. Their revolution never came. Nik Aziz and Hadi Awang will still be waiting, dead, in spite of Arab Spring, Bersih and especially Anwar Ibrahim goading.

That the revolution didn’t come it is because half the country is Chinese, Indian, Kadazandusun, Dayak and so on. Haris Ibrahim was so incense that the Chinese weren’t on the streets during Bersih1 that his blog postings went up on fire during Bersih2. Hence, Haris, who had started blogging against the state’s Islamic morality, was soon instigating for something more down to earth like Lynas – but that was in the midst of campaigning for yet another Islamic morality, PAS For All.

(Helen Ang, a one-time Haris associate, would soon adopt his form of footsie double-dealing deceit. She had started with an Aku Cina declaration, then going on to spit at anything Chinese, and now ingratiates to Malaiyoo bigots that made them feel good about themselves and rationalize their Sinophobic racism.)

Ethnicity therefore had everything to do with PAS politics and its revolution-in-waiting, but not religion. Obviously. If all the Chinese and Indians – fully one in three Malaysians – are Christians then the waiting wouldn’t have been frustrating. Other than Anwar, of course, Haris, Lim Kit Siang et al would be there for PAS. Arise! Ye Christians Arise! Haris could again trumpet, as he had done so in 2011, and before that by the DAP in Sarawak.

Between the democratic vote and the revolution, the second is still the better because democracy poses risks to a PAS state and, besides, in post-revolution, you can change the ground rules to suit your taste. You could, for example, declare democracy un-Islamic because it had once sustained the fallen regime, a regime so corrupt that it brought Allah’s intervention – revolution in the country.

Whereas the vote is a human decision, the revolution on the other hand bears all the semblances and contains all the ingredients of intervention from above, but acted on the ground. It is the ideal route to an Islamic – or any theocratic – state because you don’t have to account for the future. The wrath of Allah (or God or Jesus) is decisively swift and one time only – the old regime is killed – so that any future democratic vote is purely an optional item.

But the waiting, meanwhile, has to come to an end.

As a girl you have three options when the boy, after three phone calls, does not show up: (1) you go to the movie alone, (2) go home, or (3) wander the streets, with the hope to either find your ex b/f  or bump into a new one.

PAS didn’t pack up, close shop, or retreat to Kelantan to sulk after the revolution failed to happen. But, when it chose Option No. 3, taking to the streets, hand-in-hand with Anwar and Lim Guan Eng, the mullah clique had much explaining to do.

Where is Allah in all this humanly acts? Why will you not wait for God’s sign? What about the dakwah? Why is politics now above dakwah, and why are those mullahs poisoning the purity of the ummah by co-habitating with murtads, infidels and the kafir?

PAS proceeded of course to answer that the dakwah could come once they reach Putrajaya; from there, they add, Islam would be delivered more effectively and swiftly. This explains why PKR and the DAP were at one time busy declaring Anwar Ibrahim and Lim Guan Eng as the Messiah, God’s Gift and Caliph: it gave the mullah’s excuses some backbone. See, they would say, those men are also chosen by God, the God that is also Allah.

But all this talk wasn’t just contrived, it won’t even sell to a kid so that PAS is today seen as pursuing after earthly power, not fulfilling Allah’s will. By preferring the vote over revolution, the mullahs didn’t merely break the PAS raison d’etre, they were also getting ahead of God.

To answer this sacrilege, to make this sacrifice of a principle pay, to cease waiting, PAS commits to the very thing Islamic revolutions are supposed to do: attack the infidels and the kafirs, the Chinese hair salons, Chinese boy-girl alone together, men watching the nights, they demand Islamic design to temples, wreck shrines inside a Hindu house, and so on.

The Chinese (and Indians), already kafirs, are a sitting duck for exacting Islamic justice once Islamic attention shifts from the Melayu to the Chinese. In a perverse sort of sense the Chinese are punished because they have been in the way of the PAS revolution – and God’s will – that never came. Should it come, next time aided by the vote, tudung in schools would be child’s play.

The warning signs from Kelantan, Kedah, Penang and Selangor are ominous. Should Hindraf and P Uthayakumar back Pakatan, then the stateless Indians will be have their citizenship papers they want so badly the next day. But they would have to choose between their new ICs and their names written in Arabic. This is the dilemma Uthaya will put the Indians through although he may think it is unlikely or improbable. And why not? Surely the Chinese boy and girl were picked up not to fulfill any Islamic bylaw obligation. PAS will say it is for the violation of ‘universal values’, nothing new, old story, adds Teresa Kok, just as they and the DAP had acted before against gambling, 7-Eleven beers, indecency, and hair salons, all nests of the MCA rich.

For PAS to deliver the revolution ahead of the revolution that never came, Chua Soi Lek and Umno in particular should see a window of opportunity. But to exploit this to the hilt, Barisan should cease talking and act. To act is to go the opposite direction of PAS: change the school rules on tudung; return Tan Yi Min (or Chen Yimin) to her father; rebuild the Hindu shrine for the Indian family, sue PKR; reimburse the fines on the hair salons, then sue PAS and Haris Ibrahim (for constitutional violation); have the Chinese couple admit to khalwat, pay their fines, and sue the DAP.

One civil suit each against PAS, PKR and DAP will be worth 10,000 ceramahs by Barisan and Najib Razak.

End of revolution signs…

Sign outside a Kota Bharu hair salon: It’s safe! Your hair done by real men.

Sign on a Tumpat street: Hold hands. It’s OK.

Sign inside a Kelantan jungle: Gua Musang is PAS free! You can come out.

Nurul the Princess, above. Below, Siti Zabedah Kasim as attorney with the deep-rooted Melayu empathy for a heart-broken client.

This is suggested:

My name is Nurul Izzah Anwar; Nurul is my short name, Anwar Ibrahim my father.

On Nov 3, at a church, place paid for by it, I made the remarks pertaining to a question asked from the floor. It is a constitutional question: Is freedom of religion applicable to non-Malays only, meaning Chinese and Indians and the native peoples of Sarawak, Sabah and the peninsula. In another phrasing that question, which was posed by Siti Zabedah Kasim to who goes my thanks and gratitude, also means this: Is this freedom not applicable to the Malays.

My answer to Siti was that she was wrong, freedom has to be applicable to the Malays as well. This position is the same as its constitutional clause from which it came. Freedom must apply to all. It has to. If not then the constitution is invalid: some parts are good only for Malays, other parts are for the Chinese and Indians. Even this differentiation, a sort of legalised division, is unconstitutional: all are equal before the law, the constitution says.

Here is the problem: the three-part constitutional Malay definition says a Malay, such as I, must be Muslim. In other words, professing Islam (other than speaking the Malay language and observing Malay custom) is a constitutional requisite – an absolute requirement – to be Malay.

Inverse the logic. Am I – Nurul Izzah Anwar who speaks Malay, observe Malay traditions – Malay if I am not a Muslim? The obvious, personal, individual answer says, ‘yes, I’m Malay‘. Constitutionally, however, this answer is wrong because it is silent.

Suppose I give the constitution the leeway to claim my identity, rather than for me to claim mine, then the ‘no’ answer from the constitution leads to a deeply personal dilemma: If my name is Nurul Izzah, daughter of the Malay Anwar Ibrahim, is not a Malay, then what am I? Who am I?

This way of phrasing questions stops at the door of the constitution although the bureaucratic and legal apparatus of the state, of Malaysia such as its Islamic institutions and agencies insist that they and they alone will decide the answer. For them to decide is to ask their permission; for example, I should get affirmation or otherwise from the Syaria court.

If however the question – who am I? – is a personal, individual, existential question then I alone and only I can answer it. Not even my father. Here’s my answer: I’m Malay. I’m Melayu anyway you want to toss the elements of its definition.

This answer suggests I’m in conflict with the constitution, my birth records, my personal, legal identity, my IC, not to mention the Islamic apparatus of the state. My existence however is not unlawful, I’m just illegal. There are two probable ways out: either the state removes me as Malaysian citizen or tolerate my existence and so let me fall into the other legal category such as DLL, dan lain lain, that is, Others.

Siti’s question and my answer has the effect I just described above. That is, if I choose to accept the constitutional guarantee on religion, I choose either to remain a Muslim or to be an apostate even though being apostate is not for me to affirm, legally; I have not had Syaria court clearance.

Now, to the crux of the issue, which is this: did I say Malays are entitled to freedom of religion? Answer, yes, I did.

By the answer was I encouraging apostasy or murtad. Answer, no. If I did then the constitution is equally guilty of the charge because, recall, I’m regurgitating the constitution. It is the constitution that planted the idea – even empowers me – to say I’m free to decide as I wish, whether I’m a Malay or not.

If another Malay, such as my father Anwar Ibrahim, chooses to go down the path of leaving Islam, then should I be held responsible for his decision? If I’m held responsible, then I shall be accused of instigating apostasy. Once accused, my prosecutors will have to ask my father: did he leave Islam on account of his daughter or because his daughter had said so?

Thus, my fate falls into my father’s hands, his tongue actually so that if I despair today it is for the concern that my father might speak with a forked tongue and a muddled mind. He must be clear headed and honest.

My regret is that I was dishonest to have lied in the backward inference that Malays, in order not to be apostate, are not entitled to choose.

My remarks on Nov 3 (Malays are entitled to religious freedom) has to mean, by logical progression, that if a Malay has religious freedom then leaving Islam is possible, and on leaving Islam apostasy is committed.

Again, however, my remarks is not the equal of encouraging apostasy because the choice or the freedom thereof is not mine to decide. But in denying the inference that apostasy would invariably result – and logically flow – from religious freedom, I was wrong. Siti Kassim is right to be disappointed and I thank her for saying so.

My error, simply stated, is to say and mean one thing today, another thing tomorrow.

Here’s what I say to Umno, PAS members, Utusan, PKR and other Malays: the Malays are already a free people and the constitution validates that. And here’s what I appeal to Umno and other Malays: Trust the Malays, trust yourself, because the alternative to Islam is … what? Christianity? Allah forbid.

To Siti: indeed you are right, and I lied about what I mean in my words on Nov 3. It is I who must reform, undergo reformasi. The Chinese Confucian call this self-cultivation. To show my commitment, I shall cut off my forked tongue; you’ve only to say the word and lend me a pair of scissors. You are welcome to perform the task.

To those who had contributed statements in my defence (Nathaniel Tan, Hannah Yeoh, Steve Oh, Raja Petra, Mariam Mokhtar et al), this is my response: shut up and get out of my face. None of you make sense. I also withdraw my threat to sue Utusan. To Steve Oh in particular, I trust the police will put you away – for good; you are everything that is not a Malaysian.

To Steven Gan and Malaysiakini, here’s a scoop-tip: I’m thinking of quitting PKR and joining Umno. You are welcome to call me a frog.

Now, leave me…. There’s a lake I want to visit – alone.

Burn Malaysia, Burn 

KOTA BARU:  …[C]onstruction of a Buddhist building must, say the PAS-led state government, include Islamic designs to reflect the state capital’s status as an Islamic city.

State Local Government, Culture, Arts and Tourism committee chairman Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan (above) said developers must incorporate some Islamic elements in their plans or the proposals would be rejected. “We will ensure development will be based on Islamic principles and features,” he told a press conference here yesterday.

He claimed the ruling was well-accepted by the majority of developers, including non-Muslim developers. “I do not see it as an issue or something that could cause religious tension, as it only involves architecture and design.”

***

That, by now, is past the point of being annoying and oppressive: Islam is not meant to serve the Malays only; it is used to beat up Indians and Chinese. This isn’t new of course – Muslim authorities egging towards open war – it’s only that they don’t have the gall yet to declare it openly.

All the fault lines in Malaysia’s 50 odd years is pressed into and summarized in that single Kota Baru decision, explaining why Taki Din said what he said: “I do not see it as an issue.” Fascism lurks behind rainbow colours.

Such decisions like Taki Din’s contain the same motivations – differing only in degrees of their racist fascism – in the destruction of a Kerling temple (1977), Hindu shrines in Selangor (2005-2007?), the Bamiyan statues in Afghanistan (2001), the abduction and conversion of schoolgirl Tan Yimin (2010), the murder of Teoh Beng Hock (2009), the Satu Sekolah (SS) Malaiyoo campaign to shut down the Chinese schools, and Mahathir Mohamad bringing Anwar Ibrahim into Umno.

Which is also to say none of the above started with PAS nor will all of that end with Umno. Meanwhile,

MCA: politically castrated by Umno and incapacitated to act, even for show, it is reduced to speeches pontificating about multi-religious Malaysia as if those mullah pig heads don’t know that.

Umno: When openly resisting PAS would be nationally beneficial to it and since it would serve inter-ethnic relations, Umno keeps silent instead and do nothing because of a party principle and one assumption: (a)  the Malay, any Malay, all Malays, regardless of politics, supercede the Chinese in importance and priority under any and all circumstances; and (b) supporting Chinese, Umno assumes, it will lose Malay support. Since Mahathir, Umno has never thought it fit to see things the other way around – help Chinese, Malay support grows – a self-fulfilling victim of its propaganda.

PAS: They can see that the Malay, being a construct, have no legacy of a civilization, culture much less: tombs, buildings, written and art works…. The consequence? It is to appropriate one, forcing it on kampung Melayus, so as to give the impression that PAS stands for and inherits a grand, old religious civilization, camouflaging  a desert import that is entirely at odds with the riverine, monsoon buffalo and padi land culture of the Malay forebears. This raises a question: what might be Taki Din’s cultural or artistic administrative role or mission if he had been raised in a diet of padi swamp frogs?

Dzulkefly Ahmad & Khalid Samad: When necessary in front of church congregations, they’d preach about the wonders of an imported Arabian religion in the service of humanity, except to declare truth in the face – Islam is an oppressive, tyrannical dogma; a cruel religion made by Man that only Man is capable of, Jesus and Allah are inventions of a superstitious era of dead foreign societies; and Man can be good, better in fact, without their voodoo or their God.

DAP: Along with PAS, Anwar Ibrahim, ‘Father’ Paulie Tan and Teresa Sassy Kok they import into local politics and into the national consciousness a history of foreign fights between Europeans and Arabs in a distant land called the Middle East. But – and here’s the catch – neither they nor their children will suffer the consequences of war with dead and casualties. It is paid instead by Chinese and Indians, Buddhists and Hindus, the innocent in the war. It is for this deceit, people like Lim Guan Eng shall deserve the highest form of Chinese punishment: strapped to five horses, pulled apart, and his body parts returned to Marcus Lim as reminder of duplicity’s price, plus a bill for its expense.

Dunggu Malaiyoos & Dunggu Syed Akbars: In front of their monitor screens, the like of Ahirudin Attan, Syed Akbar Ali, Shamshul Anuar are gloating at the PAS Kota Baru news, still wondering why Malaysians are not ‘united’ or ‘integrated’. Dunggu is their common middle name.

Mahathir Mohamad: Sometimes credited as the only national politician who had stood up to PAS, the strategy was flawed from the beginning. For his belligerence, he had to compensate the Malays on matters of Islam (lest he is considered anti-Islam) and this included using it as a beating stick on the Chinese. He shares with Malaiyoos the Dunggu middle name.

Stevie ‘Wonder’ Gan: Controversy? Kota Baru? What happened? When? No-lah, it’s a small matter, w’at. Why make a big fuss?

Ronnie Liu: Soon after March 2008, he was singing the praises of PAS, and in meetings with them he’d call its ulamas ‘brothers’. The ‘brothers’ had permitted temples and even a pig abbattoir, he would say. Of course, he never told about fine red print in the conditions attached. He was colour blind.

Haris ‘Bangsa Malaysia’ Ibrahim: This isn’t the fault of Islam but a Muslim, he’d say, suggesting therefore that that there can be a Muslim without Islam. Bangsa Malaysia equals a dunggu Ahi.

Chinese: Mahathir used to promote the fiction that the Muslim-Malays are a super-tolerant race of refined etiquette when it has been Chinese forbearance that has permitted his Malay government to be dominant, thereby getting away with so many, many things. Chinese patience lasts an eternity, but the time for playing nice is over.  When Taki ‘Take-Out’ Din of Kota Baru or that Dr Fly of Kuala Selangor come to the Chinese village for an inspection or an election visit, slaughter pigs to welcome them. When Ibrahim Ali distributes angpow, even if red, keep the ringgit and shred the envelope in front of his face. If Ahi visits, feed his pig tail to the pigs. All the while, remember to take out a residence insurance elsewhere, and sit on those damn municipal bills if default is not possible.

Malaysia’s bureacracy, Islamic and civil, prodded on by dunggu Malaiyoos – Pure Shit et al – is full of holes to exploit and to get even.

After which, , we must leave; it is the only permanent, safe way out. Everything else, even in these shuzheng pages, is just spittle. Only remember what our forefathers have advised: hide your capabilities, never claim leadership, and time everything…. Always time it, and time it well: 一年之计在于春,一日之计在于晨
