God has promised those of you who have attained to faith and do righteous deeds that, of a certainty, He will cause them to accede to power on earth, even as He caused [some of] those who lived before them to accede to it; and that, of a certainty, He will firmly establish for them the religion which He has been pleased to bestow on them; and that, of a certainty, He will cause their erstwhile state of fear to be replaced by a sense of security – [seeing that] they worship Me alone, not ascribing divine powers to aught beside Me.
But all who, after [having understood] this, choose to deny the truth – it is they, they who are truly iniquitous!

UMNO Youth must be out of their minds if they think that the way to fight the gutter politics of Karpal Singh is to brandish their own version of longkang politics!
Their intrusion into the august House of Parliament can be construed as treason of the highest order as they have not only invaded the physical space of the honourable Speaker and Members of Parliament but more significantly, the physical guardian of the Federal Constitution and everything that it stands for.
When the UMNO Malays defend their ketuanan and adab, the sovereignty of their Rulers, the Malay language and Islam don’t they realise that they themselves must be exemplary in upholding all of these? Do they remember at all that Islam and Malay adat is full of urgings for us to show good behaviour at all times?
When the Malays accuse others of derhaka and treason against the Sultan, are they aware that the House of Parliament is the rightful abode of our constitutional monarchy, and to invade this sacrosanct space is more serious than demonstrating outside the Sultan’s istana?
What must our politicians be thinking when they engage their supporters in these absurd ways? Are they trying to provoke anarchy and rebellion among the irrational and emotional? Or are they trying to wrest votes in the coming party and bye elections?
Instead of redeeming UMNO’s image and standing in the eyes of the electorate, they are only destroying it further.
Ordinary Malaysians are a lot wiser than the politicians we have voted into power!
