Transporting Political shits



Report lodged against Khir Toyo for stirring up 'azans'

A police report has been lodged against former Selangor menteri besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo and a blog (pembelamelayu blogspot) for allegedly spreading “malicious slander” and “lies” about certain quarters within the Selangor government lobbying for directives against azans in the state.

Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud of PAS lodged the report at the Dang Wangi police station complaining that Khir Toyo’s statement, published in Malay daily Utusan Malaysia on Tuesday, was “maliciously intended and aimed at raising the anger and anxiety of Malay Muslims”.

In the Utusan report, Khir was reported to have urged the opposition Pakatan Rakyat-led Selangor government not to concede to purported moves by “a certain party” to disallow azans (calls for prayers) emanating from loudspeakers of mosques in Puchong and Kota Damansara.

Khir also lamented that “while we practice freedom of religion, members of a certain religion celebrate to the extent that roads are closed, Muslims do not protest.”

Meanwhile, on the pembelamelayu blogspot, Khir was quoted on June 26 as alleging that Selangor exco and DAP leader Teresa Kok had submitted a petition to Umno’s Seri Serdang state assemblyperson Satim Diman which supposedly described the azans as “disturbing the peace” of local residents.

Siti Mariah, however, said she had checked with Kok as well as the state assembly hansard containing Satim’s speech and said she had ascertained that all the allegations regarding the azans were not true.

“The issue of there being a directive against azans does not arise at all,” she told reporters after lodging the police report.

She said Mohd Khir’s statements are “lies, slander, and maliciously intended at raising the anger and anxiety of Malay-Muslims in the country and to incite their hatred against party leaders in Pakatan Rakyat, particularly DAP,”.

Siti Mariah said only Umno has exploited racial and religious issues in its attempts to regain its lost support. During its rule in Selangor, it was behind the “locking up” of mosques and the ban against some religious speakers.

“DAP leaders have never stepped into or meddled in Islamic affairs. All this while, it has been Umno that has oppressed Islam,” she said.

Hulu Kelang state assemblyperson Saari Sungib also said he and several other PAS leaders, including state exco in charge of Islamic affairs Dr Hassan Ali and Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad, had met with Selangor menteri besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim following the Utusan report.

“The menteri besar has clarified that there was no move against azans. I do not know how that issue has arisen,” said Saari when contacted earlier.

When reached for a response, Mohd Khir declined comment.

Dr M blames Pak Lah for rising racism among Malays

By Wan Hamidi Hamid
Malaysian Insider

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today blamed Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for letting racial tensions mount to the point where younger Malays are becoming more racial.

"I believe racist sentiments among Malays and non-Malays are rising. If it flares up the stability of this country may be affected permanently. We may see political wrangling of the kind we see in several other countries. In the process the economy of this country would be destroyed," he said.

Dr Mahathir said that although Abdullah tried to placate everyone by splashing out funds and projects, no one believed him because they never materialised.

"The fact is that nobody believes him or trusts him. No one has been placated."

Dr Mahathir's solution?

"Right thinking people must make their rejection of Datuk Seri Abdullah's leadership heard. If we don't then whatever racial harmony that exists would be eroded and will destroy this beloved country.

We are observing empirically how certain leaders are fanning and inciting racial hatred. They are desperate to see that this nation of ours must be dragged into another racial clash. They will say anything and do anything to make sure that the Malays hate the Chinese and the Chinese feared the Malays.

Even our Armed Forces Chief General Abdul Aziz Zainal had expressed his worries and concern.

Prime Minister Pak Lah also admitted the same concern. "The racial situation in our country looks like it is showing signs of strain and increasing tensions among races," Pak Lah said.

Deputy police chief Ismail Omar also sounded a warning yesterday, saying that racially charged statements had triggered a dangerous rash of inflammatory messages on Internet blogs and SMS text messages.

"I am issuing a stern warning to all quarters to refrain from making statements on sensitive issues via the various media," Deputy IGP said.

It seems it is inevitable that we may have to go through this turmoil. Why are these conspirators aren't afraid of Allah's displeasure? This is the month of Ramadan.

The Prophet said: "If one does not give up speaking falsehood and acting by it, Allah does not require him to give up eating and drinking." (Bukhari)

Fasting is a means for performing real worship. Real worship means desisting from violating the law of Allah. The Prophet had directed the Muslims, while fasting, ought to do more good works and ardently desire to perform acts of kindness, compassion and sympathy. Instead some of them preferred to incite hatred and animosity.

"Vie with one another, hastening to forgiveness from your Lord, and towards a Paradise as wide as are the heavens and earth, prepared for the God-conscious who spend both in prosperity and in adversity." (Al Imran: 133)

"And the believers, the men and the women, are friends one for another; they enjoin the doing of right and forbid the doing of wrong, and they perform the Prayer, and they give the alms and they obey Allah and His Messenger. It is they upon whom Allah will have mercy (Al Tawbah: 71)

it seems that this TOYO is full of shit for sure. one moment he was with AAB talking to PAS for JV when he was kicked out of office. The next moment he was sitting together with Dr.M and son talking shit in a forum. Then right now he is going up against Dr.M's son for UMNO Youth chief post. And along the way, he's just went around shitting everywhere. Is it because something is wrong with his rear end that he just can't stop shitting uncontrolable. Perhaps he also has got his face skin thicken while under going some COSMETIC UPGRADE recently. Or could it be his Doctorate is not really genuine that he can't go back to practice. OH TOYO ! Maybe boleh jual KOYO cari makan pun halal juga ma !!!

Kill Toyol and Mahatiu have one thing in common; the two buggers are both sore losers !

RedBag said...

Sore losers indeed who can't seems to face the reality that their political careers were in the past. The deep longing for power drove them to speak and do silly things!

Maverick SM said...

Hasilox,

It is important that the public gets to understand the engineering of such programmes and stay rational. The whole game is played beyond commoners' aprrehension.

preview,

memang ada berkaitan.


Redbag,

It is not about a political career that is passed. Every politicians do make come back. The essence is that racial hatred is now the new game and getting insidious. So, let's us be rational and know the motive behind all the players.

you think they will lift a finger against this botoxman? sweetdreams, guy.
anyway, i have a better suggestion. Do away with the ISA! Since this present govt doesnt believe in that, vote them out come the next election.

IMHO, many politikus use the Azan as reason to stir the hates between Muslim and non Muslim. As a non Muslim, I don't think the Azan are annoying, indeed, it is just an clock to me. Actually, I enjoy the Azan, it remind me the time. :)
