Sikh community in Lahore prevented from celebrating festival

The Sikh community in the eastern city of Lahore has been barred from organising a religious celebration at a disputed gurdwara after a religious group persuaded authorities that celebrating the Muslim holy day of 'Shab-e-Barat' is more important than the Sikh festival. 

The musical equipment of the Sikhs was thrown out and their entry to the gurdwara barred due to the efforts of the Dawat-e-Islami, a Barelvi proselytising group, The Express Tribune newspaper reported today. 

Police were deployed outside the gurdwara to prevent Sikhs from conducting a religious ceremony until after the end of Shab-e-Barat, which falls tomorrow. 

The Sikh community wanted to commemorate an eighteenth-century saint at the gurdwara on Friday. 

Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh at Naulakha Bazaar in Lahore was built to honour the memory of a Sikh saint who was executed in 1745 on the orders of the Mughal governor of Punjab, Zakaria Khan.

Bersih an opportunity for Jews to infiltrate country, says Utusan

KUALA LUMPUR, July 18 — Utusan Malaysia said today that street demonstrations could open the door to Jews and Israel to interfere in  the country’s affairs.

The Umno-owned newspaper specifically named Bersih as such an example after citing former police chief Tan Sri Rahim Noor’s assertion that there were parties who wanted any country that was against Jews and Israel to be toppled.

“When the drums in the name of basic human rights becomes louder, it gives an opportunity to pro-Jewish groups to interfere in any Muslim country,” Utusan said in an editorial today.

“We may not be aware that supporting an action, including demonstrations, can trap us in the mission of foreign parties who are trying to control the country. The same with the illegal Bersih gathering, it is not free from getting foreign aid where thousands of ringgit was channelled into their account.”

The Malay daily also added that “we have seen a political leader who is said to be close to Jewish leaders and NGOs. Due to political ambitions, Islam and Malays can be sold out,” it said, repeating allegations it has made in the past against opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, whose Pakatan Rakyat (PR) were firm backers of Bersih.

Utusan Malaysia has also painted Bersih chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenivasan as anti-Islam and previously alleged that Bersih was funded by Christian groups such as the Konrad Adenauer Foundation from Germany and the Canadian Allied Foundation.

It added today that “Muslims and Malaysians should not allow any party especially Jews from interfering in the affairs of this country”.

Its news editor, Zulkiflee Bakar, also wrote in a separate commentary that swift action should be taken against the Bersih chief, as “we want to know the truth behind the allegations that Ambiga has received foreign funds to organise the illegal demonstration”.

Bersih had gone ahead with the July 9 gathering despite being denied police permission, plunging Kuala Lumpur into chaos as tens of thousands poured into the city, resulting in nearly 1,700 arrests, scores injured and the death of a PKR division leader’s husband.

The coalition of 62 NGOs had earlier agreed to an offer by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to move its street gathering to a stadium but was then told by authorities not to gather in the capital, ruling out its choice of the historical Stadium Merdeka.

Following the rally, Utusan Malaysia had also accused Anwar, Ambiga and DAP leaders of using PAS and Malays as political tools to press ahead with the rally.

PSM 6: An unlawful detention

How can Najib talk to the Pope with a clear conscience when at home, six people... are held without trial?

Most people would not have known him personally but they would have read of him and know that he comes from Sungei Siput. Few, especially those he has helped, will disagree that he is a champion of the poor and the forgotten.

To those whose lives he improved, he is a king among ordinary men. To the government, he stands accused of plotting to overthrow the King.

Today, as his health deteriorates, he is kept in isolation, under the draconian 1969 Emergency Ordinance (EO) of Malaysia.

If you thought it couldn’t happen to you, then you might wish to think again.

The man in question is Dr D Michael Jeyakumar, the Sungei Siput MP. On June 25, he and 29 other people from the Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) were arrested for allegedly possessing communist propaganda material and so were considered a threat to national security.

The authorities claim that the PSM was a danger to the public as it was planning to revive the communist party and then topple the government by starting a revolution.

According to some reports, PSM members had been forced to sign confessions in which they admitted that there was a plot to overthrow the government and that some members had undergone suicide bombing training.

Some serious allegations have surfaced regarding the treatment of the 30 people. Women were physically abused, forced into an overcrowded cell and had to drink from a toilet bowl, to quench their thirst.

The conditions in the cell were deplorable with many unable to relieve themselves and had to beg to go to use the toilet which apparently was not working. Other ill-treatment involved the inhumane and life-threatening treatment of a diabetic.

Among the activists who were detained without trial with Jeyakumar are PSM deputy president M Saraswathy, central committee members Choo Chon Kai and M Sugumaran, Youth chief R Sarathbabu and Sungai Siput branch secretary A Letchumanan. They are collectively known as “The PSM 6”.

Last month, they were arrested and charged. After being released, they were re-arrested on July 2. There were also allegations that the Special Branch had tricked some members of PSM who were illiterate, into signing statements alleging their involvement in a violent revolution. It was also alleged that their responses for being members of PSM and their relationship with Bersih 2.0, had been written for them.
Unflinching service
The authorities may wish to tarnish Jeyakumar’s reputation but his colleague, another doctor, writes of the young Jeyakumar who was at that time, performing a stint in the Sarawak General Hospital (SGH), in the 1980s. The following is his description of the young medical officer:

Even then he was most outstanding as a government officer of uncommon social responsibility, providing patient service unflinchingly regardless of heavy workloads. Indeed he showed his concern for patients well beyond his immediate patient care responsibilities at SGH.

I recall that as a junior medical officer at SGH, he actively canvassed for:
The safety and comfort of patients on long boat journeys, while on referral from Kapit district hospital to Sibu Hospital;

Injured workers’ timely entitlements under the Workers Compensation Scheme; especially timely and more just awards by medical boards to injured workers;

The legislatively prescribed responsibilities of Socso in the rehabilitation of permanently disabled workers, and weakness of Socso thereof; and

The occupational safety of mostly Dayak logging workers in Sarawak, or rather, lack thereof.
This is all the more remarkable as he comes from a comfortable upper middle class family in Penang.
I was disappointed in myself for having failed in my effort to recommend him for Perkhidmatan Cemerlang award.

Nonetheless, he was a personal inspiration to me, and he will always be such.

I have no doubt that it is a highest level of humanity which made him not just a physician, but an uncommon one. He has dedicated the last three-four decades of his life as much to his Dayak patients in Sarawak as to the Indian plantation workers, both groups being the marginalised of the marginalised in Malaysian society.

His humanity finds expression in his leadership of Malaysian Socialists.
We might not agree with the principles of PSM but if we are to have free, fair and clean elections, we have to allow everyone to express their views.
Today, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak will pay a visit to the Pope in the Vatican City.
How can Najib hold his head high up and talk to the Pope with a clear conscience when at home, six people and possibly several thousand others, are held without trial, their future destroyed, their lives in jeopardy, just because they want to uphold their rights to free speech and freedom to hold peaceful assemblies?
Is the Vatican going to remove all its crucifixes for Najib’s visit?

Titiwangsa MP Dr Lo’ Lo’ dies of cancer

Her remains will be taken to the Masjid Al-Akram in Dato Keramat for prayers at 8am tomorrow.
PETALING JAYA: Titiwangsa MP Dr Lo’Lo’ Mohd Ghazali of PAS died at about 10.25pm today after suffering from breast cancer.

A tweet message, sent out from her twitter account by an admin at 10.28pm, read: “Dr Lo’ Lo’ has just breathed her last moments ago.”

This was confirmed by PAS Dewan Muslimat chief Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff, who is also the Rantau Panjang MP.

SMSes sent out to PAS members are saying that her remains will be taken to the Masjid Al-Akram in Dato Keramat for prayers at 8am tomorrow.

Lo’Lo’ had undergone treatment at the Selayang Hospital and was in a critical condition earlier today.
The news of Lo’Lo’s death made its round in the micro-blogging twitter site earlier today afternoon but her family had denied the news, stating that the parliamentarian was in critical condition and seeking treatment in Selayang Hospital.

Even Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim had tweeted at about 2pm about her death. He later retracted his tweet and apologised to her family.

The first term MP won the Titiwangsa seat in 2008.

While her seat will be declared vacant now, there will however be no by-election as the Parliament has served its three-year mandate. PAS will have to nominate someone to look after this constituency until the next general election.

‘Malay dinosaur’ Ibrahim hits out at ‘crocodile’ Wong

The Perkasa chief hits back at Wong Chun Wai for calling him a "dinosaur" and labels him as “father of crocodile”.

PETALING JAYA: Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali has branded Group Chief Editor of the Star, Wong Chun Wai, as the “father of crocodile” and accused him of writing “very subtly to destroy the country’s basic constitution”.

Ibrahim’s latest tirade was provoked by Wong’s column in the Sunday Star today entitled “Talk Less, Listen Harder” in which he suggested that politicians begin paying attention to the real boss – the rakyat.

“We are not interested in 100-storey buildings, whether wives should be obedient to their husbands in bed or racist tirades from political dinosaurs like Datuk Ibrahim Ali of Perkasa,” Wong wrote.

During his opening speech at the Perak Perkasa annual meeting this afternoon, an indignant Ibrahim told 1,200 delegates that he wasn’t interested either in a” racist tirade from a columnist father of crocodile like Wong Chun Wai”.

“I know this is a person who writes on and on very subtly to destroy the country’s basic constitution,” he said in a statement via text message. “So I would like to say right in front of Wong Chun Wai, you can write and fool others but not the dinosaur Ibrahim Ali.”

“I’m proud to be a Malay dinosaur who will protect at any cost against those who try to write a new social contract for Malaysia. So Wong better behave and be a good Malaysian citizen. Don’t try to ask more. Enough is enough.”

When asked what a “father of crocodile” meant, Ibrahim said that it referred to a hypocrite who swallowed everything.

The independent Pasir Mas MP then proceeded to dragged Pakatan Rakyat’s national leaders into his diatribe.

“If I’m a dinosaur then (Opposition Leader) Anwar Ibrahim, (DAP advisor) Lim Kit Siang, (PAS spiritual advisor) Nik Aziz Nik Mat, (Penang chief minister) Lim Guan Eng and (DAP national chairman) Karpal Singh are fathers of dinosaurs,” he ranted. “They (have been in power) longer than me. We call them the fathers of nepotism.”

Ibrahim questioned why Wong chose to overlook this fact.


This day, two years ago, our brothers, Teoh Beng Hock and Gunasegaran, died in the custody of authorities who were supposed to keep them safe from harm.
We have not forgotten.
We will never forget.
It’s been a week since the Bersih 2.0 walk.
That day, we overcame fear and a new and brave spirit  has pervaded our nation.
That spirit must continue.
And that spirit must push for justice for those who died while in custody.
Every man’s death diminishes us because we are a part of humanity.
Please join us this evening.

6.15 PM –   Gather at Annexe/Bar Council/ Klang River side
6.30 PM –   Short Message/ Sharing by Reps of CS organisations
6.45 PM –  ”We have not forgotten” Minute of Silence

Controversial internet journalist Raja Petra voluntarily completed a sworn statement ("statutory declaration") at a Malaysian court on June 18, in which he affirmed that he was "reliably informed" Deputy Prime Minister Najib's wife Rosmah Mansor, together with her aide Norhayati and acting Colonel Aziz Buyong (Norhayati's husband), were present at the scene of the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibbu in October 2006.
Raja Petra Kamarudin




E.O. 12958: DECL: 06/23/2028


Classified By: Political Section Chief Mark D. Clark, reason 1.4 (b and d).

1.  (C) Controversial internet journalist Raja Petra executed a sworn statement on June 18 to the effect that Deputy Prime Minister Najib's wife, Rosmah Mansor, was at the scene of the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibbu in October 2006, and that PM Abdullah and a Royal received information to that effect. 
While the mainstream press has shied away from printing Rosmah's name, Kuala Lumpur is abuzz with this latest explosive allegation.  PM Abdullah has thus far remained silent, while the national police chief and Attorney General said they would investigate. 
Raja Petra, who faces sedition charges for earlier claims, informed us that the Attorney General's Office filed a police report on the matter, and he expected to be called in for questioning soon.
While the latest allegations of Rosmah's presence at the murder seem implausible, they nevertheless will have resonance with a Malaysian public that does not have confidence in the integrity of the Altantuya murder investigation.  Continued public attention to such reports also could damage Najib's front-runner status as PM Abdullah's successor.  End Summary.
Rosmah at Murder Scene, PM Has Report
2.  (U) Controversial internet journalist Raja Petra voluntarily completed a sworn statement ("statutory declaration") at a Malaysian court on June 18, in which he affirmed that he was "reliably informed" Deputy Prime Minister Najib's wife Rosmah Mansor, together with her aide Norhayati and acting Colonel Aziz Buyong (Norhayati's husband), were present at the scene of the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibbu in October 2006.
Raja Petra also stated that military intelligence provided a report with this information to Prime Minister Abdullah, which was subsequently given to Abdullah's son-in-law Khairy Jamaluddin "for safe-keeping," and that one of Malaysia's traditional rulers also was briefed on the matter.  Raja Petra did not reveal the source of this information. 
Raja Petra remains indicted for sedition for his earlier internet reports that implied DPM Najib and wife Rosmah were connected to the on-going Altantuya murder case (ref A).
3.  (SBU) Internet reports of Raja Petra's declaration emerged on June 20, and the full text became available on his Malaysia Today website.  Some of Malaysia's mainstream media briefly reported Raja Petra's new allegations, but carefully avoided identifying Rosmah Mansor as the "prominent VIP" named in his statement. 
An aide to Najib reportedly described the statement as "mind-boggling."  Inspector General of Police Musa Hassan told reporters the police would look into the "highly inflammatory" allegations, and could take action against Raja Petra if they were found to be untrue, while Attorney General Abdul Gani Patil stated his office would look "seriously" into the matter.
Heavy Buzz in Parliament
4.  (C) As members of Parliament gathered June 23 for the opening of the second parliamentary session, Raja Petra's story competed with speculation of a no-confidence vote against PM Abdullah for the attention of lawmakers.
Opposition MPs, parliamentary watchers, and journalists who spoke with us at Parliament all remarked that Raja Petra had put himself at great risk, and therefore they speculated that he must have some evidence in hand.  If this is a bluff, "it will cost him and his family," one MP remarked. 
Prominent opposition MP Lim Kit Siang said he was troubled that the PM had kept quiet about the allegations.  Later on June 23, Kit Siang introduced an emergency parliamentary motion to discuss Raja Petra's statement.  The Parliament Speaker is required to accept or reject on an emergency motion within 24 hours.
Raja Petra Ready for Police
5.  (C) We spoke briefly with Raja Petra and his wife Marina on June 23.  They related that the AGO had filed a police report regarding the affidavit.  A seemingly confident Raja Petra said, "I am ready and eagerly waiting for the police to question me," and took exception to the threatening tone of IGP Musa's remarks.  He also implied he had further evidence to implicate DPM Najib and his wife, and asked rhetorically what action the police would take "if the allegations are true."
6.  (C) Putting aside the question of Najib's links to the case, the allegation that Najib's wife would be present at the Altantuya murder scene strikes us as very implausible, though fully in keeping with Raja Petra's sometimes wild and highly emotional reporting. 
The Malaysian public and political elite, however, have no confidence in the integrity of the government's investigation into the 2006 murder of Altantuya.  The government's inept and gruelingly slow prosecution of the case against DPM Najib's former advisor Razak Baginda and two soldiers from Najib's security detail, and the authorities' decision early on to limit the scope of the investigation to exclude any further links with DPM Najib, have sent clear signals of political interference.
Against this backdrop, most Malaysians will believe there is at least some truth in Raja Petra's affidavit.  Amidst the leadership struggle within the ruling UMNO party, emerging fractures in the National Front coalition, and maneuvering for a no-confidence vote against PM Abdullah, the latest allegations add to the nation's sense of political turmoil.
Continued public focus on such allegations also could harm Najib's front-runner status as PM Abdullah's successor.

Press statement for the immediate release of Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj

The Malaysian Insider
Jul 17, 2011 

17 JULY — We, the undersigned doctors, including members of the Malaysian Medical Association (Perak Branch), and/or the Perak Medical Practitioners Society

1. are very concerned and troubled over the prolonged ‘illegal’ detention of our colleague Dr. Jeyakumar Devaraj.

2. are concerned for Dr Jeyakumar’s health, which seems to be deteriorating under detention.

3. are deeply saddened, hurt and disillusioned by the action of the Judiciary (which is supposed to be to be independent) which on 13/07/2011 delayed the hearing date of habeas corpus application of Dr Jeyakumar and five others by a month.

We urge the immediate release of our colleague, who is also the Member of Parliament Sungai Siput, Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj.

Dr Jeyakumar and five other Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM) members were ‘illegally’ detained under the Emergency Ordinance recently. They have been placed in a cruel and unjust situation. They were first accused of waging war against the King and now of being a threat to national security, allegedly trying to revive communist ideology. They are subjected to interrogation and solitary confinement, denied proper visitation rights with their lawyers and close family members. This is of course unacceptable in a civil and democratic society.

We say that the detention is ‘illegal’ because till today, there is no solid and substantiated basis for the continued detention of Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj and five of his PSM colleagues.

We scarcely need reminding that Article 5 (1) of our Federal Constitution says no person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty save in accordance with the law.

Malaysia sits on the Human Rights Council. The Malaysian government must do justice to its position on this council by according and recognising the human rights of Dr. Jeyakumar and his team who are under ‘illegal’ detention. The least that the Malaysian government can do is to live up to the ideals of Human Rights Council ─ and not violate the very rights that the government has been charged to defend steadfastly.

In view of this obligation, it will be totally unjustified to continue the ‘illegal’ detention of Dr Jeyakumar and his team without giving them a fair trial in court. The Government should do justice to its position on this Council and convince Malaysians that there is no malice on their part. Denying Dr Jeyakumar and his team the right to defend themselves is denying them justice.

Therefore, we urge the Government, especially the home minister, to release Dr. Jeyakumar and his team immediately.

It is pertinent to emphasise that we are strictly apolitical and are acting as colleagues of Dr Jeayakumar, who is also an active and much respected member of the MMA, whose family is much respected for the outstanding social work it does. Dr Jeyakumar family has contributed enormously towards the development of the healthcare services in our country.

The Government has rightly spoken much about transformation and change, and this is something every loyal citizen endorses. But what appear to be the deployment of Cold War tactics by resurrecting the “communist” and “foreign” bogeyman on political rivals in these days only serves to dissuade the public that the government is earnest in its efforts to bring about civil changes that would be in line with first world societies.

Those who know Dr Jeyakumar personally will readily vouch for his integrity, his passion for the poor and his principled, patient and peaceful approach. He is neither a communist nor a violent man who could be a serious threat to the country. For the record, Dr Jeyakumar is a highly dedicated physician who has had excellent service record while he was working in the Ministry of Health and a tireless social advocate and activist who has worked throughout his life to help and protect the rights of the poor, the marginalised and the forgotten communities in the society. All those who know Dr. Jeyakumar speak highly of his work and commitment to the people. How could someone with such immaculate professional standing and exemplary be an enemy to the country! The home minister must make every effort to secure the immediate release of Dr Jeyakumar and do justice to both his ministerial duties and to Dr Jeyakumar.

Malaysians have a dream
