Hence , if it should happen that a prompting from Satan stirs thee up [to blind anger], seek refuge with God: behold, He alone is all-hearing, all-knowing!




Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, once the legitimate Menteri Besar of Perak , has shown his true colours yet again in the audacity with which he and his PR supporters showed their protest over the Perak crisis  –  in Parliament immediately after taking the oath of an MP!

I don’t believe this has taken place!

I don’t believe that a newly-elected representative of the people can act so irresponsibly and so irreverently without any regard for the sanctity of the House of Parliament, without any respect for the Speaker and the other MP’s (including his Opposition compatriots), without any concern for the presence of the Prime Minister and his Cabinet!

Most of all, Nizar displayed a complete lack of self respect, decorum and etiquette! In simple language he showed bad upbringing!

Kurang ajar! Biadap! Bodoh sombong!

This rebel-rousing behaviour is unprecedented in the history of  the Malaysian Parliament. The stance is far worse than the bad taste of a few  UMNO Youth members in confronting Karpal Singh outside the august house not so long ago. At least their lack of wisdom could be pinpointed to youthful brashness! You can’t say the same for the middle-aged man who was Perak’s highest officer just months before!  

The public outcry against UMNO Youth then was deafening. I condemned their outrageous behaviour in an earlier posting LONGKANG POLITICS.  PKR and the other PR component parties lashed out at them hard and strong! 

What do they have to say now? What will they cry out  to defend Nizar and his band of vagabonds wearing headbands and brandishing their brand of democracy, justice and human rights with defiance, vindictiveness, revenge and hate written all over their faces!

Is this the kind of people that Malaysians want as their leaders? 

Are they the quality politicians that Malaysians will vote  in as their ADUN and MP in the endless rounds of bye elections and in the next general elections?

Is this the brand of unruliness that will disguise itself as government, as justice, as equality, as civil liberty, as patriotism – that Malaysians proudly uphold as the heritage of their motherland?

Are  these the ideals of nationhood the rakyat are willing to defend to the last drop of their blood!

I shudder to think of the degeneration and slow destruction of the ideals of Merdeka, Rukun Negara, Vision 2020 and now One Malaysia!

The true colour of these dissidents is surely black!

    Yes Zurin – politics is in essence noble but politicians can be dirty and dangerous and despicable!

    And we should not condone dirty politics and unruly behaviour among politicians from all parties. My condemnation of UMNO’s money politics and lack of integrity has been loud and clear in The Star and The Sun and of course ninitalk! I spoke out against PAS’ call to ban SIS and rehabilitate SIS women!

    I feel I have a duty as an ordinary citizen to speak up! More of us should write to the papers and start respectable blogs!

    Salams Zurin. We must meet up for coffee soon!

    Perhaps, he shouldn’t have done it but you must understand his frustrations in having seen his legitimately elected government removed because of 3 unscrupulous frogs.

    Everytime I read something like this I have this terrible tendency to LAMENT about the state of the country. The politicians, the principles, ethics and general behaviour of some of it’s citizens, the state of the sports,etc,etc. I have to stop this.
    Deep down I think the underlying emotion is frustration. Frustration because at a time when I should have “participated” more in the nation -building process, I stepped aside, more concerned with personal issues. There are many like me. Those who stepped aside. From my batch of classmates itself I know several capable Malaysians who now feel cheated that people in the various echelons of power entrusted by us by way of the vote,payment of taxes,etc have cunningly been able to combine the process of nation-“building” with their own personal “issues”.
    We look for a capable check and balance opposition but we get political chameleons and their cronies who then act like deliquents and hoodlums.
    One final lament-we get what we deserve?

    Yes whameworry – we’re all frustrated at some point or another but we try to behave within the constraints of our professional, socio-cultural settings. We can’t all run amok!

    No sukhi – it’s not too late for us to participate now. In fact I think it is imperative upon us ordinary citizens to speak up and voice our opinions so that something can be done to right the wrongs. We must do more than complain or criticise.

    We must inject constructive ideas into the national discourse, conduct innovative activities in our communities and join civil society movements to effect change.We can’t depend on the politicians any more!

    Best wishes!
