Police roadblock at the Penang Bridge. Who was the idiot incharge?

I had just returned from my office in Penang after a day's work and while on my way back at the Penang Bridge, a massive traffic jam was underway, from the middle path right to the entrance leading into the Prai Industrial Estate in the mainland. I was one of the unfortunate motorist caught in the massive jam which began from 7.00pm.

As what the other motorist had thought, maybe it was an accident on the road at the bridge and so we dragged on slowly and patiently through the journey.

To our very grave disappointment, we found that it was the police who caused all those massive traffic jams from the middle of the bridge right down to the road leading into Prai. They blocked two of the three lanes at the end of bridge leading to Prai and as the result the motorist have to squeeze into the one lane and this is what makes the jam into a tragically terrible one.

What I saw when I saw the police personnel manning the roadblocks were talking and laughing like as it they are poking some jokes and funs on the motorist who are suffering from their roadblocks.

Come on, it is a peak hour for those who had just finish their day's job and work. All of us are surely exhausted and wanted to head straight home to take our baths, have our dinners and take our rest together with our families. But today, the police had sabotaged ruin our lives in order by making things from bad to worst?

What if there is an emergency in the middle of the bridge? What if there is somebody on the bridge who needed medication or who is in the midst to attend to an appointment, sitting for and exam, getting something done in accordance to the law and so on?

Don't they have other important matters to tend to, other than manning roadblocks in order to create a massive traffic jam? The police said they do not have enough personnel to ensure the security and safety of the churches from being bombed by extremists and terrorists, but they mobilized a sizeable battalion of personnel just to mann a roadblock and just laugh off at us like that. This ain't funny at all. The police are violating our basic human rights in this way.

The crime rate is increasing day by day, robberies, rapes, snatch thieves, mat rempits, cow-headed trouble makers, etc are everywhere and the police did nothing to stop all these crooks. What they did so far? Focusing on political security in order to protect Umno from the oppositions?

I just wonder who was that idiotic police officer in charge who organized such a stupid and senseless block on the bridge? Is he out to gain some credit from his boss or what?

Sarawakians, time to vote the state Barisan out of power!

The Islamic Development Department (Jakim) maintains that Christians should not be allowed to use the word “Allah” and rejects the suggestion that the word could be used in East Malaysia while remaining banned on the peninsula.

Umno Youth executive committee member Akhramsyah Muammar Ubaidah Sanusi said in his blog that Malay violence is inevitable. Looks like the Umno-inspired violence is also inevitable. They wanted to wage war and violence against all of us for trying to preserve national unity and religious harmony.

They (these terrorists) bombed and attacked the churches in both peninsular and the eastern states of Sabah and Sarawak.

Sarawak's state legislative assembly term which is scheduled to in mid of 2011 next year is expected to call for state elections anytime around. We hope our friends in Sarawak would have made up their mind by now.

In order to preserve our national unity and religious harmony, you must vote the state Barisan out of power. What has the state BN dominant party Persaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), its number two ally Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP), Sarawak People's Democratic Party (SPDP), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and the rest in the BN coalition done for you all?

All they had done todate are to continue splitting the majority Dayak community there in order to continue staying in power for the rest of their life. The slashed your forests and jungles because they wanted to enrich themselves and their political allies with the logging business.

They thrown out the state's natives from their respective villages, rape their wifes and daughters in open and took away all their properties and traditional establishments, and now they wanted to control and monitor your religion, to say you cannot do this and you cannot do that, consficated your bibles and so on.

The Sarawakian Chinese community had already voiced their discontent in the last state election by voting out their chinese representatives from SUPP and now, it is time the entire Dayak community to do the same without fear. Exercise your rights to vote and voice your future through the ballot box.

Support Sarawak National Party (SNAP), PKR, DAP and PAS - the Sarawak Pakatan Rakyat.

Guan Eng has given his statement, says Karpal

DAP National Chairman Karpal Singh today dismissed the claims made by the police that Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng has been refusing to cooperate in investigation over his alleged seditious remark.

“The Chief Minister did, in fact, give a statement to ASP Ahmad Fauzi bin Mohamad Zain at his office in the presence of lawyer RSN Rayer and, thereafter, signed that statement,” said Karpal in a statement today.

We urged the Selangor police chief to retract his threat against Guan Eng and the people of Penang immediately. The Selangor police chief has been improfessional and irresponsible in making his threat against the chief executive of a state government.

We’ll not hesitate to arrest you, "Umno" cops threatened Guan Eng

The Selangor police chief has threatened Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng that police will not hesitate to arrest him if he fails to give his statement on alleged sedition.

Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said a police team, including the investigating officer from Shah Alam, was sent to Penang on Saturday to record his statement but he had refused to co-operate.

Lim is being investigated for allegedly uttering seditious remarks during a Pakatan Rakyat convention in Shah Alam on Dec 19 last year. He was alleged to have said that political aide Teoh Beng Hock’s death was murder.

Lim had earlier demanded for the police report to be given to him first and ultimately no statement was recorded.

Yes, Lim was correct in refusing to give his statement. If the police said there is a police report lodged against him, show it out and not just mentioning it verbally. We wish to remind DCP Datuk Khalid to follow proper procedures by producing the "police report" that he claimed was lodged against Lim by a man.

The police is now misusing their powers widely by targeting leaders of the Pakatan Rakyat. They send a battalion to arrest PKR advisor and Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and if the police still fail to obtain Lim's statement, will they be dispatching a regiment of police commandos to arrest him?

The police had put politics above the public safety. You do not have enough men to protect the churches nationwide from terrorist attacks but you have sufficient men to arrest just one man like Lim and Anwar. Is this justice?

Yeah, we all know, you only serve those Umno supreme bastards. We really need the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) to address the political crisis in the police force.

Situation under control?

According to the home minister and Umno vice president Datuk Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, the situation is now under control.

But today, another church in Johor was targeted by possible attackers with paints splashed at the entrance of the building.

So, we would like to ask Hishammuddin, is the situation still under control? The cops are not doing their work reasoning that they do not have enough manpower to do so. But they got enough manpower to prepare for the arrest of the Penang Chief Minister in event they fail to obtain the statement from him.

Apart from that the police also have sufficient and more than enough manpower to go against the Pakatan Rakyat leaders and elected representatives.

Which is which now?

Now even Sikh temple was attacked

After series of churches being attacked with fire bombs nationwide by some unknown terrorist, the Sikh temple is not spared neither.

The temple was attacked like that for some very unreasonable cause. For what? Can the Muslim NGOs now extend their volunteer security patrol at all Sikh temples, then later to all Chinese and Hindu temples around the clock?

This is due to the fact that the police force were unable to guarantee any security to all places of worship. In this case, the police also cannot guarantee the safety and security of our nation, because of their "manpower shortage".

Or because they are busy protecting and enhancing the interest of Umno and its leaders. Can Umno and the BN explain to the people?

Pakatan wants Umno to take responsibility for church attacks by the terrorists

PKR Supreme Council Member Datuk Zaid Ibrahim today condemned Umno and urged the government to take full responsibility for the church attacks.

"It has to take full responsibility for the worsening of relations between people of different faiths in this country in its handling of the use of the word Allah. "The irresponsible conduct of fanning the emotions by Umno leaders has brought about this dangerous situation. What we see today confirms that this country is being governed not by engagement consultation, sophistication or persuasion but by brute and mob force,” he said in a press statement.

Early this morning, a Protestant church was torched while homemade explosives were thrown at a Catholic church next to the Assunta Hospital. "The Umno-led government has the penchant to use force or flexing of authority in dealing with delicate issues. Take the case of the ban imposed on the Herald. They could easily have engaged in consultation with the church in Sabah and Sarawak. They should try to understand why the need to use the word Allah without any preconceived notions or prejudice. After all, they have been using the word Allah for many years before BN government acted to ban the Herald.

"They could easily have also engaged in discussions with the various Muslim groups about their legitimate concerns on whether the church are surreptitiously converting Muslims and explore ways to address these concerns in spirit of dialogue and peaceful deliberations,” he said.
He explained that there are already laws against converting Muslims but Umno instead chose to politicise the sensitive issue.

"There is already a law against converting Muslims anyway. They could have done a lot more. But because of their lack of maturity and sophistication banning is the obvious choice.

"Umno want instant popularity, so fanning the emotions of Muslims becomes legitimate... and when the court ruled otherwise they then fan the Muslims to oppose the ruling. The people of this country will not escape the scourge of Umno-led rule until they decide once and for all to dislodge this government in the next available opportunity.”

PAS has also reminded and warned its members not to engage in any demonstrations organised in the Kampung Baru Mosque, Shah Alam Mosque and the National Mosque after Friday prayers.

The protest is being orchestrated by several Muslim NGOs in retaliation against the High Court's ruling on Dec 31 allowing the Catholic Church to use the word "Allah" in its weekly publication the Herald.

PAS vice-president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man had said that the demonstration on the use of the word “Allah” is Umno’s position and not the party’s. "We call on all members of PAS in order not to be dragged in the same demonstration sponsored by Umno," he told party’s newspaper.

PAS backs the use of the word Allah by Catholics because it is consistent with the Federal Constitution and the fundemental Islamic principles.

Prime Minister and Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak has also defended his government’s decision to allow angry Muslim groups to hold a nationwide protest against the “Allah” ruling, saying they have every right to do so.

So, if that is the case, we urge Datuk Najib to explain the terrorist attacks on the four churches initiated by Umno supporters and pro-Umno NGOs. But we doubt you will be able to do that.

Umno had encourage such terror and now when it happened, they wanted to deny it. We are not going to believe you anymore.

By the way, ISA and the Sedition Act are only apply to Pakatan Rakyat.

Dr Asri says Muslims should not object if ‘Allah’ is refer to God

Influential Islamic scholar Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin stepped into the “Allah” controversy today by pointing out that Muslims should not protest against non-Muslims using the word "Allah” to describe God.

"Man should refer to the one true God as Allah. This proves the teachings of Islam in referring to God as Allah. Therefore all of mankind regardless of their religion should say that Allah has created the world, that Allah tells us to do good and so on.

It is good that Dr Mohd Asri took the initiative to explain the situation following the continuous manipulation of certain parties especially Umno to make the situation worst.

Right now, pro-Umno non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are making a hell of noise all over the country by acting radically and behaved violently in the streets, threatening non-Muslims with their so-called "ketuanan" jargons.

These actions are deemed uncivilised and inhuman. No religion will teach nor encourage their followers to act in such an unacceptable manner.

Respect the feelings of your fellow Malaysians, please!

PDRM should be replaced

After years of observation on the performance of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), we are all gravely disappointed at their actions and position being one-sided and unprofessional in the way they perform.

They had acted in such a manner that we should call them Umno police instead of its original professional name, the police force. Why do we say that? Simple, it is because they are working efficiently to advance the political interest of Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN).

They did not have sufficient time or manpower to curb the rising crimes in our country but they do have enough personnel to be mobilized via their Special Branch to curb opposition politics and to make unjust arrests on innocent people who are working hard out there to advance the democratic principles and justice for our nation.

The mobilized the entire regiment to support Umno’s coup de’tat in Perak, they mobilized an entire battalion to arrest opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, they mobilized an entire division to ousted Perak speaker Sivakumar from him office, they mobilized thousands of special branch personnel nationwide to spy on our opposition party leaders and now they are planning to mobilize a regiment to arrest the Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng for alleged “seditious” remarks he had made in the recently concluded Pakatan Rakyat National Convention.

When Umno organized an illegal demonstration in Penang trying to incite a racial riot to topple the Penang state government, PDRM did nothing. When Bukit Bendera Umno division chief Ahmad Ismail tried to incite hatred and violence, PDRM did nothing, when Penang Umno secretary Azhar Ibrahim called for a journalist to be gunned down, PDRM did nothing. When threatening messages of bloodshed were made in the Umno general assembly, PDRM did nothing.

But when the Pakatan Rakyat leaders are out there trying to protect our people’s interest and defending democracy, justice and equality, PDRM quickly and efficiently roll in their tanks, weaponary and regiments to curb and arrest these people for nothing.

And today, violent criminals like the mat rempits, murders, snatch thieves, robbers, rapist, drug lords, political racist and the real penderhakas are roaming around the nation freely threatening the security and safety of our families, neighbors, children, friends, relatives and our parents. PDRM responded that they cannot do much reasoning that they did not have enough personnel to carry out the patrolling.

This clearly shows that PDRM is already being political motivated, one-sided and pro-Umno. They are acting in the interest of Umno and its elites in order to safeguard their interest as well as the looted national funds in their pockets.

Due to afraid of being further exposed, PDRM even went to an extend of mobilizing its officers’ corps to send a protest and threatened the then premier Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to stop his proceedings in working towards the establishment of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) in the parliament.

Therefore, PDRM ought to be replaced as soon as possible with a more credible, professional and people-oriented People’s Security Force. PDRM is a thing of the past and outdated. PDRM is still in a denial mode and cannot be reformed anymore, just like their masters, Umno.
