Umno chief foresees PR split-up

SHAH ALAM, Jan 1 — Umno Information Chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib said today the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) alliance comprising Pas, DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) was beginning to split up.

This was evident following quarrels between PKR and Pas, Pas and DAP and within PKR itself involving the Indians and Malays, he told a media conference after a meeting with the committee members of all wings of the Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno Division.

Muhammad, who is chairman of the Selangor Umno Liaison Committee, said a group of Indian Malaysians angry with the Barisan Nasional (BN) had voted for the PKR in the last general election in March last year and were today disappointed with the way they had been treated by the PKR leadership.

“In fact, today they are disappointed with the PKR leadership which is not interested in visiting them. They do not have the time to look at zinc sheets having been blown off or floods.

“This is not the work of their leaders. They want to be members of councils... they feel they do not have to visit the people,” he said.

On the contrary, Muhammad said, the BN understood the problems of the people because its leaders went down to the people to learn of their grievances and worked to develop the state.

“The landscape of the country’s development was shaped by the BN. They (PR) don’t understand. We go down to the people. We know what they want. They don’t. They received a ready state. So, they do not know what to do because there is no event,” said the Rural and Regional Development Minister.

He said the BN struggle was based on its track record but the PR manipulated certain issues to garner the people’s support and votes.

On the Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno Division, Muhammad said it remained unaffected by the resignation of its head Captain (Rtd) Datuk Zahar Hashim who joined Pas last month.

He said the 28 heads of branches in the Petaling Jaya Division who reportedly wanted to follow Zahar in joining Pas could be from branches set up by Zahar himself.

Muhammad said he hoped that the division’s deputy head Datuk Raja Hanipuddin Datuk Raja Nong Chik, who is acting head, would be able to increase the membership of the division in time for the next general election.

Raja Hanipuddin said he and the divisional committee members wanted to strengthen the party machinery to recapture the Taman Medan state seat. — Bernama

Home Ministry bans Herald’s Malay supplement

The good news is that the Home Ministry has approved the Herald’s permit just a couple of days before it expired - just in the nick of time.

The other bit of good news, according to the NST, is that the paper apparently has been allowed to expand its scope beyond coverage of “religion” in the narrowest sense. The new permit allows it to also cover “current affairs” and “international affairs”. Previously, the Home Ministry had issued warning letters for articles that allegedly went beyond the scope of “religion” (according to the government’s narrow definition).

The bad news on New Year’s Day is that the approval comes with strings attached:

  • the Herald has to stop its Malay-language supplement. A typical edition of the weekly paper has 32 pages, including an eight-page Malay-language pull-out, three pages in Chinese and two pages in Tamil, with the rest in English.
  • the paper can only be sold in churches (I don’t think it’s being sold anywhere else at present);
  • The Herald must print clearly on the cover that the paper is only meant for Christians.

It is worth bearing in mind that 65 per cent of all Christians in Malaysia (as at the year 2000) are ‘bumiputeras’ from Sabah and Sarawak and this figure is rising. (It was 63 per cent in 1991.) Most of these are Kadazans, Dayaks and Dusuns, many of whom mainly use the Malay language.

In that sense, the Malaysian church has a bumiputera majority. So by denying the majority of its church members the right to read in Malay, the national language, isn’t the government violating a fundamental right?

This reminds me of the time when Aliran was denied the right to publish a magazine in Malay in addition to its English edition. We took the case to court and won at the High Court. But the law was then amended to make the Minister’s decision final and we lost in the Supreme Court and Aliran ended up having to pay costs!

Meanwhile, the Church has taken the government to court over its ban on the use of the term “Allah”. It may resort to similar action over the ban on publishing in Malay.

Newscaster, actress, among 26 arrested at sex party

KUALA LUMPUR, THURS: Bernama, Jan 01 2009

Police arrested a female newscaster of a private television station, an actress and 24 others who took part in a sex party at a hotel room in Jalan P. Ramlee here today.

The two woman and seven others — six men and a woman — tested positive for drugs, said ASP Mahani Ahmad of the police’s vice, gambling and secret society branch.

All those arrested during the 3.30am operation aged between 18 and 31 years, she said when contacted.

She said the police also found liquor and various drugs like ketamine, cocaine and syabu in the room on the 11th floor of the hotel and a 20-year-old student of a Kelana Jaya private college believed the drugs supplier was among those held.

During the raid, three couples were on the bed while the rest were entertaining themselves believed intoxicated, she said.
She said preliminary investigations showed the sex party was hosted by two men and those who attended it knew each other through Friendster — a social network in the internet.

Those arrested were taken to the Kuala Lumpur contingent police headquarters.

Meanwhile, about 40 people were arrested for various offences during the new year’s eve party in Bukit Bintang where several fights took place between drunken youths.

A number of people including foreign tourists also lost cash, passports and electronic gadgets to pickpockets and 10 police reports were lodged at the mobile police station deployed there.

24-in-a-room sex bust

(By Rocky's Bru)
09 started with a (gang) bang for some, or so says The Star in its sms alert:

1/1 Police arrested a female newscaster, an actress, and 24 others who took part in a sex party at a hotel room in KL.
But was it really a SEX party? The female newscaster, according to sources, is one Ms FR of Astro Awani. I was told it was an actor (not actress) of Gerak Khas, a popular crime series produced by Skop Productions, a Yusof Haslam concern, was also among the two dozens.

I don't usually like such stories but the similarity with how last year - 2008- started for Malaysia [First Scandal for 08], when politician Chua Soi Lek admitted that he was the man in a sex video. Dr Chua, as we know it, made a spectacular comeback to MCA!

p.s. I hope the papers find out if it's really a sex party. A lot of people I know pooled funds and book into hotel rooms or suites to usher the New Year. Usually, the rooms offer excellent view of the KL skyline and the fireworks.

Jika anda dirompak dan dipaksa keluar wang ATM

Sekiranya anda dirompak dan dipaksa untuk mengeluarkan wang akaun anda daripada mesin ATM, anda boleh meminta bantuan cara senyap dengan memasukkan no. Pin anda di mesin ATM secara terbalik. Sebagai contoh jika no Pin anda adalah 123456, jadi anda harus memasukkan nombor 654321. Mesin ATM akan mengenalpasti nombor tersebut adalah nombor yg diterbalikkan drpd nombor yg sebenarnya melalui kad anda yg masukkan ke dalam mesin tersebut.

Mesin ATM akan tetap mengeluarkan wang tunai seperti biasa, tapi apa yg kita tidak ketahui, pihak Bank dgn segera akan menghantar pihak berkuasa (Polis) kepada anda. Perkara ini pernah disiarkan di TV baru-baru ini dan ianya menyatakan kaedah ini jarang digunakan disebabkan ramai orang tidak mengetahui akan kewujudan sistem yg seumpama ini.
