Highly memorable quotes from Nik Aziz

Since Umno are in the midst of idolising and respecting their political nemesis in Kelantan (to the point they might not want to put a candidate in the coming by election), here is a tribute to the politician named Datuk Nik Aziz, the former Menteri Besar of Kelantan and also the Mursyidul Am of PAS (equivalent to Spiritual Leader). Below are a few most memorable quotes from him..

On Umno rejecting Islam and are not muslims, and how PAS had educated DAP in accepting hudud way better than Umno could:

“Harapkan UMNO nak ajak Islam lagu mana, dia sendiri tolak Islam. UMNO tolak Islam, nak dia perkenal Islam pada MCA dan DAP macam mana. Satu rahmat Cina Malaysia ini kerana Pas bersama DAP. Serangan DAP kepada Islam Alhamdulillah sekarang ini bertukar daripada langkah mayat kepada boleh berunding, Alhamdulillah kejayaan. Mana UMNO boleh buat.” Source.

Condemning all Umno members as rejecting Islam and won’t get any pahala (rewards) from Allah:

“Mereka tolak Islam. Tolak Islam, tolak agama Allah lah. Tuhan mana nak bagi pahala? Sebab mereka berbalah dengan Tuhan. Mereka sembahyang tak dapat pahala.” Source.

On rape:

“Dah dia buka aurat. Dirogol. Padanlah muka dirogol. Dia dok jual murah murah. Betis dia, muka dia, peha dia. Rogol lah! Peduli apa?” Source.

Defending Shahnon Ahmad and his book ‘SHIT’ for the usage of lewd profanities like “pu*imak”, “b*toh, hurled towards the then PM in 1999:

”Allah sendiri gunakan perkataan memaki, mencemuh atau mencarut, jadi manusia sendiri berpeluang menggunakan maki hamun tetapi terserahlah kepada manusia di mana tempatnya”. Source.

On who is better suited to be a leader of the country:

“Tiada sesiapa di muka bumi ini yang tahu menjaga dunia termasuk menguruskan soal budaya, ekonomi serta harta benda, melainkan ulama.” Source.

On smokers, or seemingly pious people who don’t follow religion: 

“Lembu yang berak di tengah jalan tidak boleh diambil tindakan undang-undang kerana tidak mempunyai otak dan fikiran. Tetapi manusia yang mempunyai otak sanggup melakukan perbuatan yang menyalahi agama dan kesihatan, apatah lagi dalam keadaan berpakaian melambangkan Islam. Maka, mereka yang melakukan perbuatan (menghisap rokok) itu dianggap lebih hina daripada lembu” Source.

On PAS getting helped by the anti-hudud DAP (even Satan) in facing the general elections in 1999:

“Siapa yang nak tolong kerajaan Islam, kami sebagai pemimpin Islam mesti terima sama ada DAP, MCA, dan MIC. Kalau nak tolong mengapa kita tolak. Jika DAP ikhlas nak tolong PAS, saya terima. Usahkan DAP, syaitan pun boleh saya terima.” Source.

In 1963, criticising the Alliance for partnering non-muslims in forming the Government:  
“Orang-orang Islam yang berkongsi dengan orang-orang kafir untuk memerintah negara, menjadi kafir atau haram.” Source.
In partnering DAP to face the general elections:
“Ini penting kerana kita juga mahukan sokongan dan undi bukan Islam dalam usaha memenangi pilihanraya umum akan datang.” Source.
While asking Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir to resign in 1999 claiming the PM is old and senile:
“Jika Mahathir letak jawatan pada hari ini, esok saya pula letak jawatan sebagai Menteri Besar Kelantan.” Source.
Al Fatihah.

Footnote: In 2002, Datuk Fadzil Noor the President of PAS passed away and in the subsequent by-election BN won the parliamentary seat. BN has always put a candidate and they never shied away from a by-election because they ‘respect’ their late adversary. If it was the other way around, no favours will be given from PAS towards BN. Not even a little respect. None was given by Nik Aziz towards Umno when he was alive.

Rafizi Ramli and Tony Pua showed us how they view PAS’ role in Pakatan Rakyat

Below is a news excerpt on what two much maligned Pakatan mouthpieces, Rafizi Ramli and Tony Pua had to say about their relationship with PAS:

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 30 ― DAP and PKR leaders have admitted that without PAS, Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) hope of capturing Putrajaya will recede further, as the Islamist party holds the key to unlocking crucial votes from Malaysia’s Malay heartland.

Although PAS leaders have brushed off talk of a possible split in the six-year-old pact, the Selangor mentri besar crisis had exposed deep fissures between the Kelantan-born party and its PR allies.

PAS’s firm refusal to endorse Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had put it on a collision course with both PKR and DAP, and raised doubt on whether the Islamist party will remain in PR or eventually opt out.

“If that is the case we can’t achieve our aim of capturing Putrajaya in the near future… not till after two more general elections, at least,” said PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli.

The former PKR strategist noted that although the federal opposition pact had succeeded, to some extent, in steering voters to pledge support for its issue-based policies in the last federal polls, there are still large pockets of the society that identify better with a race-based cause.

“The Malay psyche is that PAS and Umno represent the Malay agenda and both are considered a Malay-based party,” he told Malay Mail Online.

Despite having bagged more than 50 per cent of the total votes cast in last year’s general election, PR only retained 89 parliamentary seats while a bulk of the Malay and Bumiputera-dominated rural constituencies, including those in Sabah and Sarawak, were lost to BN.

Still, Rafizi said, should PAS decide to leave PR, Malaysia’s oldest opposition party would face an equally challenging task of regaining its own support base.

“PAS has always lost marginally… or some are by major vote differences against Umno but under Pakatan, a coalition that brought three parties with a common interest of getting rid of Umno, gave PAS a chance to defeat Umno.

“And any three-cornered fight will be disastrous in breaking up the votes and inadvertently Umno benefits,” the Pandan MP said.

DAP national publicity chief Tony Pua agreed with his PKR ally and admitted that if PAS parts ways with PR, it would put the pact’s Putrajaya dream further out of reach.

“It will be a steeper hill to climb than it already is,” said Pua in a text message to Malay Mail Online.

But, the Petaling Jaya Utara MP pointed out, if PAS stays in PR but continues to lean further right, as reflected in its just-concluded annual congress, achieving federal power may not happen anyway.

“Hence, Putrajaya will be unlikely regardless of whether PAS is in or out,” he said.

Selangor DAP vice-chairman Charles Santiago concurred, saying if PAS deviates from PR’s common policy framework, it would severely impact the party’s ties with PR, as well as the pact’s hope of capturing Putrajaya.

“I don’t think DAP will agree to religion is being used to organise a particular country or share the idea of an Islamic state, if PAS were to return to that objective,” said the Klang MP.

The senior PAS leadership had consistently stood apart from its PR allies in PKR’s intricate bid to replace Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim with Dr Wan Azizah as Selangor mentri besar ― before PKR deputy president Azmin Ali snagged the post ― leading to growing questions over its commitment to the pact and open calls for its exit.

Among others, some in PAS had argued that Dr Wan Azizah’s gender would render her incapable of shouldering the responsibilities of a mentri besar.

Their claim was immediately met with scathing criticism from DAP and PKR leaders, and women’s groups, who categorised the view as antiquated and misguided.

The situation grew more intractable when PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang unilaterally named three nominees for the MB post in accordance with the Sultan of Selangor’s request although PKR and DAP were adamant in naming only Dr Wan Azizah.

PAS had initially agreed on two names — Dr Wan Azizah and her deputy Azmin — but their list was later overtaken by Abdul Hadi’s choices for the post.

It was the state ruler who finally ended PR’s bickering over the coveted Selangor post, when he decided on Azmin for the job.

PKR stopped its lobbying for Dr Wan Azizah, and together with the DAP, declared their support for the Sultan’s pick. PAS naturally did the same.

In his speech during the swearing-in ceremony at the Klang palace last Tuesday, Azmin said he would give top priority to repairing the frayed ties within PR.

All three PR parties have eased up on their squabbles for the moment, but it remains to be seen if PAS, and Abdul Hadi in particular, is ready to mend ties with its partners. – Source

Comment: What PKR and DAP didn’t say out loud is that they admitted that they are using PAS to manipulate the malays votes in order to vote for Pakatan during the last two general elections. PAS is used by DAP and PKR to tell their huge vote bank that DAP and PKR are more islamic than BN. That is how unscrupulous the political strategy of Pakatan. And now that PAS is putting a stand on what they truly are, both PKR and DAP are baffled like a stupid kid whining over why the toy couldn’t work when even from the beginning he knows the toy won’t function properly. But all this is not new. Only the mentally blocked couldn’t see it.

Lest we forget: Rafizi Ramli’s stupid scheme

The boy who cried trying to explain the Kajang Move he orchestrated. Fast forward 7 months, we have a huge mess and upheaval in the state of Selangor.

He even had the cheek to say “we do not manipulate the system like how Umno manipulates the system”.

Spoken like a true conniving manipulator and master spinner.

Shouldn’t he take responsibility and resign, like a man? Enough of this stupidity. Even his explanation on the Kajang Move was filled with nonsense. No mention of Khalid Ibrahim either. Rafizi Ramli is the boy that should be blamed.

 

Sabah only produces 10% of Malaysian oil production

This piece of news caught our eye today:

Kota Kinabalu: Increasing cash payments – often called oil royalty – for Sabah will have an adverse effect on the national oil and gas industry and possibly render it no longer viable.

Petronas Senior Vice President (Upstream Malaysia) Datuk Mohd Anuar Taib said investors might think twice to come to Malaysia and invest in the oil and gas sector, which is already becoming a highly competitive industry among the oil producing countries.

In a special briefing for the Sabah media, Mohd Anuar together with Vice President of Malaysia Petroleum Management, Adif Zulkifli, said many of the major oil companies from US were also returning to their country.

They said that if the cash payments of five per cent to the Sabah State Government were to be increased it would result in Petronas and its Production Sharing Contractors (PSC) being left with a smaller portion to be divided between them.

The breakdown of the revenue from oil fields is 10 per cent (five per cent each for the State and Federal governments), 70 per cent for cost recovery and only 20 per cent profit.

Out of the 20 per cent, Petronas has to pay 38 per cent to the Federal Government in oil income tax.

“Therefore, Petronas and its PSC would only divide the remaining 52 per cent out of the 20 per cent, normally 50:50,” they said.

Therefore, if the cash payment is increased to 20 per cent like what Sarawak is asking, it means Petronas and its PSC only share 10 per cent of the profit after deduction of income tax.

“This is surely not attractive to investors and they may just shy away from Malaysia,” they said.

Adif said Sabah was actually producing about 180,000 barrels or oil equivalent per day (boe/d) which is only 10 per cent of the total national oil production.

Most of the oil produced was in the peninsula side, he said, adding Sarawak mostly produces gas.

However, Sabah’s production is expected to grow to 16 per cent over the next few years.

According to Adif, out of the 333 oil platforms in Malaysia, 53 were in Sabah.

Sabah currently has 14 oil fields and three gas fields in production while 41 oil and 47 gas fields had been discovered.

Petronas has 27 active PSCs in Sabah involving 12 companies or players. Petronas’ cumulative upstream investments up to 2013 plus commitments amounted to approximately RM179 billion while for downstream the figure was RM6 billion.

Adif said Petronas was not paying oil royalty to Sabah but as stated in the Petroleum Development Agreement, it was paying cash payment.

“This is our top priority and according to the agreement, Petronas must pay the five per cent whenever there is production regardless if there is a profit or not,” he said.

Oil and gas industry have become more costlier, he said, adding that Petronas had to attain expertise from other companies and this was done through the PSC.

The cost of exploration alone starts at RM4 billion, he said.

Nonetheless, he said compared with other oil producing countries, Petronas’ cash payments of five per cent to Sabah were relatively higher.

Source – Daily Express

The opposition in Malaysia have been feeding lies to the people of Sabah and generally to the people of Malaysia regarding the oil royalty. It is now made known that Sabah only produces 10% of the total national oil production.

Therefore, what is the justification of Sabah and Sarawak in saying that people in West Malaysia are living on their oil wealth?

First and foremost, we are fed up with politicians who uses Petronas and petroleum industry as a chess piece in their political agenda. Using oil royalties to entice the people to break the strong harmony that we have as Malaysians.

The opposition had done a massive damage on to the psyche of East Malaysians just because they want to create hatred for the central government and steal more votes for them in the process. Although the Federal government had done so much for East Malaysians, it seems the opposition is teaching the people not to be grateful about the developments and progress achieved.

But the Federal government would still help them..

KOTA KINABALU: A formula is being worked out to address the call to increase oil royalties for Sabah, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

The Government, he said, together with Petronas, would decide on various methods to improve Sabah’s economy.

“We have been concerned about the issue of oil royalties in Sabah and as an immediate solution, Petronas will increase its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes in Sabah,” he said.

“We will be announcing several other approaches which can help Sabahans in the oil royalties issue,” he added.

Najib explained that there were many approaches which could be applied to it, but not necessarily increasing the percentage of oil royalties as mooted by the Opposition.

He said Petronas would help more rural students, provide more scholarships and increase its funding in its CSR programmes here, among others.

“This is not about getting contracts. It’s about giving and creating value,” he said at the breaking of fast with Sabah Barisan Nasional members at a hotel here yesterday.

In the first place, does Dato Sri Najib Tun Razak know that Sabah is not entitled to receive 20% oil royalty based on the state oil production? Can someone please let him know, before he wrongly reapportioned our country’s precious funds to people who wrongly thought they deserve more than their fair share of contribution?

Thank you.

Malaysia reciprocates Singapore on toll charges

The latest announcement by the Malaysian Highway Authority that starting from 1st August 2014, all vehicles going to Singapore will be charged RM6.80 at the CIQ toll to Singapore and RM9.70 at the CIQ toll from Singapore received some mixed reaction by the public.

With the advent of Singapore charging foreign vehicles coming in to Singapore at SGD35 (RM90) from SGD20 (RM52) starting from 1st August 2014 as well (an extra of RM38), Malaysia seemed to reciprocate with a lesser amount of quantum albeit, with a blanket charges on all vehicles.

Obviously leading the way in going against this move are the opposition portals, and unsurprisingly, Pakatan Rakyat’s politicians.

It is quite alarming to see the amount of disinformation coming out from these portals (and those politicians). For one, the toll charged is not for the use of the highway (the Eastern Dispersal Link highway) leading up to the toll, but rather only for vehicles using the CIQ.

All other users using the EDL but are not going to Singapore will not be charged at all. The 8km highway itself is free to Johoreans for them traverse across Johor Bahru. And as the name implies, the highway had greatly dispersed traffic and reduced travelling time for Johoreans in their state capital city.

A quick search on information for the toll led us to http://www.edlconnects.com.my with the FAQs at http://www.edlconnects.com.my/faq.html.

Among other things, out of 220,000 daily vehicles that are currently on the EDL highway, only 60,000 are the CIQ users and out of this 60,000 vehicles 80% of them are Singaporean cars. Meaning, 48,000 vehicles are Singaporeans!

Furthermore, and this is quite pertinent since Malaysians who care about other Malaysians who are working in Singapore, what they need to know is that Malaysians who are working in Singapore receive income from Singapore and pay their taxes to Singapore. As they use our highways without tax representation, surely a meagre amount of toll charges (82% less than what Singapore is charging us) will not cause their employers much loss of income.

And those who ride bikes to Singapore, are not charged at all.

Question now is, will the government be smart enough to counter any negative feedback received from the people going in and out from Singapore?

Top 10 Reasons Why Pakatan Rakyat Is Lowering Your Standards

The standards we are talking about is the standard of being you set yourself as a citizen of this country. Your standard as part of the larger society. And this standard of yours is quickly being eroded by Pakatan Rakyat. Here’s how:

10. When it comes to corruption, all Barisan Nasional MPs and leaders must be seen as corrupt free. But when the leaders of Pakatan Rakyat do it, all of you turned around and say – look Barisan Nasional is even worse. Yes, Pakatan Rakyat had successfully lowered your standards in terms of corruption. In your minds, Pakatan Rakyat can be corrupt because Barisan Nasional is corrupt too. In the end, it is okay for YOU to be corrupt because everyone else is corrupt too.

9. When it comes to Barisan Nasional leaders, the Pakatan Rakyat politicians are telling you that you need better leaders than Bung Mokhtar or Hassan Malek or G. Palanivel or most of the current crop of MPs from Barisan Nasional. But when it comes to their own leaders it does not matter who they are and what quality they possess; the lower the better. That’s why you are okay when Loh Gwo Burne became MP (your lowered standards voted him in), when Anwar Ibrahim was caught in a video with a China doll, all of you still voted for him. Let’s just cut the nonsense and admit that he is that fella in the video and on top of that, he is also guilty of sodomising someone against his will (a homosexual rapist is another term for that). Why can’t you people admit that? Standards too low already? Should we even delve and talk about Mahfuz Omar and even Hew Kuan Yau?

8. When it comes to the education qualifications of Barisan Nasional leaders, Pakatan Rakyat wants you to scrutinise their intelligence and education background. The standards they set for you is that you deserve Barisan Nasional leaders with at least a doctorate level education. But when it comes to their own leaders, anyone will do. Even the intelligence level of Mat Sabu will get him your votes. Recently, a  26 year old UiTM graduate with only one year working experience as a trainee in a law firm is being put as an MP candidate to serve a constituency of 60,000 people. The selling point to the people in Teluk Intan? A promise of hope for things to get better. Yes, we all know the value of a promise in Pakatan Rakyat’s election manifesto. But who cares, your standards are quite low so that is okay. God forbid if Barisan Nasional fielded a candidate with the same amount of education qualifications to what say, Mahfuz Omar acquired. All hell will break lose.

7. Pakatan Rakyat wants you to hound Barisan Nasional leaders for shoddy services and below average performance by the ruling government. You only deserve the best and above all, must not thank Barisan Nasional because it is their duty to provide these to you in the first place. But when it comes to the services by Pakatan Rakyat state government, they want you to lower your standards and forgive them for any poor performance. Because it is not their job to give you top notch services. Even promises can be broken. But don’t stop there, they want you to be angry at Barisan Nasional for any third-rate, poor quality services rendered by Pakatan Rakyat state governments. The JAIS raid on Bible Society as well as Selangor water fiasco are two such examples.

Lying and giving poor services are Pakatan Rakyat's standards which are acceptable by you.

Lying and giving poor services are Pakatan Rakyat’s standards which are acceptable by you.

6. Normally, hypocrisy is a trait which is shunned by most people. But since the arrival of Pakatan Rakyat, they have successfully  ingrained this attitude into you as an acceptable characteristic. You have been downgraded as a walking hypocrite. Take for instance, the call of cronyism and nepotism by Pakatan Rakyat to Barisan Nasional. You people echoed the same sentiment and propaganda against Barisan Nasional. But when it comes to Pakatan Rakyat, they can take all these nepotism and cronyism to another level yet you are okay with it. Not only that you embrace it lovingly and say it is okay for them to have father-son, husband-wife, father-daughter intra-party relationship with a whole gamut of feudalistic family oriented parties. It is all nice and dandy. Right? So sad.

 5. When it comes to Barisan Nasional, double standards is a big no on your part. You are bred by Pakatan Rakyat to believe that Barisan Nasional must never resort to double standards. Say one thing, but do the other. That is unforgivable. But for Pakatan Rakyat, you are blinded or worse, brainwashed to see that practising double standards is acceptable on your part. Want to have a multi racial country but support segregated vernacular schools; want to have an equitable and just society, but want to impose hudud only for muslims; want to have a free and fair elections, but their party elections are very autocratic and riddled with corruption and strife.

4. The freedom of speech within Pakatan Rakyat is near non-existent. You must not criticise the leaders in Pakatan Rakyat, especially if you are a member, and especially if you have a valid reason to criticise. All that will be swept under the carpet and the complainers will be issued gag orders. Worse, they will be kicked out. But God forbid if the freedom of speech against Barisan Nasional is slightly curtailed. When it comes to Barisan Nasional, there must be a no holds barred attitude against them. The Prime Minister must not stifle any unfair defamatory speech against him. But Lim Guan Eng, Anwar Ibrahim and their ilk can sue anyone who says something which they do not like. In other words, there are practising totalitarian leadership right under your nose. Yet, you bask in it pretending it to be a liberal democracy.

3. For years Barisan Nasional has been ridiculed by you when you say it is an old party, filled with political has beens and dinosaurs. You laugh at Barisan Nasional without being cognisant of Pakatan Rakyat’s own pack of grizzled old men. Leading the charge is of course DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang, who will be 77 come next general election. Your ‘prime minister in waiting’, Anwar Ibrahim will be 71 in 2018. Abdul Hadi Awang, your future DPM, will also be 71 in 2018. There are many more oldies in Pakatan Rakyat. So why are you people lowering your standards in accepting dinosaurs as your leaders? Because Pakatan Rakyat asked you to.

2. As your intelligence is being lowered even more, you still find enough time to believe what Pakatan Rakyat told you; that Barisan Nasional treats non-malays as second citizens and that only malay cronies could reap all the benefits this country has to offer. But at the same time you believe another propaganda that says non-malays pay more tax than the malays. And so, those who are ‘oppressed’ by Barisan Nasional suddenly get a lot more income that’s why they are taxed! This contradicting logic would be so preposterous to an intelligent mind, but alas, Pakatan Rakyat has stupefied you to the point of no return. You can’t even step back and take stock on any messages Pakatan Rakyat throws at you. You can’t even perform logical and critical thinking anymore. You just gobble everything up as the truth.

1. When it comes to Barisan Nasional, you are made to believe that the current state of perceived despair and worsening fate of the country has always been the case since Independence. You were made to believe that only Pakatan Rakyat is the saviour of this country. Judging from 9 points mentioned above, it will take only the stupid to believe that Pakatan Rakyat will make this country better. Fact of the matter is, the country under Barisan Nasional has made this country one of the best place to live on this earth and to say that things have always been terrible would be a great disservice to your standard of intelligence. Yes sure, things have not always been perfect. But remember the great 90s and the decades before that? Remember the great country prior to 2008? One of the things that made this country worse is the birth of Pakatan Rakyat. Where were you in the 90s? Perhaps living a happy life at that time with few complaints. Even Lim Kit Siang was a happy, tolerable fellow at that time.

Tun Abdul Hamid menulis tentang perpecahan melayu dan tuntutan melampau bukan melayu

Berikut adalan tulisan hasil pandangan Tun Abdul Hamid Mohamad, bekas Ketua Hakim Malaysia. Penulisan beliau boleh di baca di http://www.tunabdulhamid.my

PERPECAHAN MELAYU PUNCA TUNTUTAN MELAMPAU BUKAN MELAYU

Oleh Tun Abdul Hamid Mohamad

Pada pandangan saya, hubungan antara kaum di Malaysia masih baik. Rakyat berbagai kaum masih menjalani hubungan seperti biasa. Tidak ada ketegangan di antara kaum dalam hubungan mereka seharian. Hubungan sosial di antara sesama orang Melayu juga baik, tidak kira apa parti politik mereka. Apa yang berlaku semenjak PRU 12 ialah “political divide”.

PAS, melalui janji syurga yang tidak perlu ditepati, mengkafirkan penyokong UMNO dan memburukkan pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO dan lain-lain, telah berjaya menarik sebilangan besar orang Melayu untuk menjadi penyokongnya, bukan lagi di kawsan pedalaman tetapi juga di kawasan bandar, bukan lagi di kalangan orang-orang yang berkelulusan Syari’ah tetapi juga di kalangan professional. Ini telah melemahkan UMNO.

Tetapi, selagi PAS kekal bersendirian dan tertumpu kepada negeri-negeri Pantai Timur, ia tidak menjadi ancaman yang serius kepada kerajaan BN di peringkat Persekutuan.

Keadaan berubah dengan penubuhan PKR. PKR telah berjaya menarik orang-orang yang kecewa, yang tidak mendapat tempat dalam UMNO, golongan opportunist dan yang marah kepada pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO tidak kira sama ada alasannya munasabah atau tidak. PKR telah membuktikan bahawa ia hanya mempunyai satu matlamat: berjuang untuk menjatuhkan Kerajaan BN untuk membolehkan Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia. Mereka sanggup melakukan apa sahaja untuk mencapai hasrat mereka, termasuk mengorbankan hak orang Melayu dan kedudukan agama Islam.

Melihat perpecahan orang Melayu, orang Cina khususnya, yang memang pandai membuat perkiraan, telah bersatu di belakang DAP, mengambil faedah daripada undi penyokong PKR dan PAS untuk menjatuhkan BN dan menjadi parti dominan dalam Pakatan Rakyat yang akan memerintah. Perak selepas PRU12 adalah misalan yang baik. Wakil PAS di jadikan sebagai Menteri Besar menyebabkan penyokong-penyokong PAS merasa bahawa mereka telah berjaya menubuhkan sebuah “Kerajaan Islam”. Maka bertakbirlah mereka di sepanjang jalan menunjuk perasaan. Hakikatnya majoriti ahli Exco adalah ahli-ahli DAP dan merekalah yang sebenarnnya berkuasa. Jika dulu “Pak Kadok menang sorak kampung tergadai, sekarang Haji Kadok menang takbir negeri tergadai.” Semua ini orang Melayu, khususnya dalam PAS, mesti sedar.

Melihat keadaan ini, NGO-NGO Cina mula menunjukan sikapnya yang sebenar: tamak dan “kiasu”. Mereka mula membuat tuntutan-tuntutan yang tidak berpatutan yang melanggar peruntukan-peruntukan Perlembagaan khususnya mengenai hak orang Melayu dan kedudukan Islam. Tindakan Gereja Katholik juga sangat merbahaya. Semua perbuatan itu bukan sahaja boleh menggugat perpaduan negara, malah ketenteraman negara. Semua ini tidak berlaku semasa orang Melayu teguh di belakang UMNO.

Perbuatan itu mesti dibendung. Untuk itu Kerajaan hendaklah memikir semula mengenai keperluan mengadakan semula Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA). Kita tidak patut takut kepada kritikan mengenainya. Singapura dan Brunei mempunyai undang-undang yang serupa. Tidak pula dikritik. Apa yang dilakukan oleh Amerika Syarikat di Guantanamo adalah lebih teruk dari penahanan di bawah ISA. (Lihat Conflict of Interests Between Different Basic Rights dan juga Legal and judicial Transformation in Malaysia: www.tunabdulhamid.my.)

Di samping itu, Kerajaan tidak patut terlalu berlembut apatah lagi takut kepada mereka sehingga tidak berani mengambil tindakan undang-undang terhadap mereka. Tidak guna mempuyai undang-undang jika tidak berani menggunanya.

UMNO juga mesti berusaha untuk menarik balik pengundi yang telah lari kepada PAS dan PKR malah sanggup mengundi DAP kerana taat kepada PKR dan PAS. PAS dan UMNO perlu berfikir untuk berkerja sama, sekurang-sekurangnya di peringkat Persekutuan untuk mempertahankan Kerajaan Persekutuan daripada jatuh kepada PKR dan DAP. PAS mesti sedar bahawa perjuangan asal mereka adalah untuk Melayu dan Islam; bahawa jika Pakatan Rakyat berkuasa DAP akan menjadi parti dominan, bukan PKR atau PAS; bahawa PKR tidak boleh diharap untuk membela orang Melayu dan agama Islam; bahawa DAP adalah lebih chauvinistic daripada MCA atau Gerakan; bahawa PKR atau PAS tidak boleh mengawal cita-cita DAP seperti UMNO mengawal MCA atau Gerakan. Maka jika PAS tidak mahu hak Melayu dan kedudukan agama Islam digugat, ia hendaklah berkerjasama dengan UMNO.

Sebenarnya, di antara PAS dengan UMNO sudah tidak ada apa bezanya lagi. Demikian juga tidak ada apa bezanya di antara Kelantan yang diperintah oleh PAS selama lebih kurang 40 tahun, dengan negeri-negeri lain di Semenanjung Malaysia selain daipada mengadakan kaunter bayaran berasingan untuk lelaki dan perempuan. Dulu Qari’ah haram mengambil bahagian dalam tilawah Al-Qur’an. Sekarang ia sudah harus! Apa yang menjadi “penghalang” bukan ideology tetapi kepentingan diri. Pemimpin-pemimpin di kedua buah parti takut hilang kedudukan, jawatan dan pendapatan masing-masing, jika bercantum. Soalan: adakah itu asas perjuangan mereka? Masalah ini pun boleh di atasi jika kedua parti berkerjasama untuk menubuhkan Kerajaan Persekutuan, selepas keputusan pilihanraya di isytiharkan.

Anak Negeri Sabah dan Sarawak juga patut sedar bahawa kedudukan mereka dalam Perlembagaan adalah serupa dengan kedudukan orang Melayu. Jika mereka mahu kedudukan mereka selamat, mereka hendaklah bersama-sama orang Melayu, UMNO dan BN. Bahawa sebahagian daripada mereka beragama Kristian tidak pernah menjadi masalah. Mereka boleh terus mengamalkannya seperti biasa dalam Bahasa Kadazan dan sebagainya. Yang dibantah oleh orang Islam, terutama sekali di Semenanjung Malaysia, ialah cubaan untuk menggunakan kalimah “Allah” dalam bible dan upacara agama dalam Bahasa Melayu, kerana motifnya adalah untuk mempengaruhi orang Melayu menganut agama Kristian. Ini jelas dilarang oleh Perlembagaan Malaysia.

Jika PAS dan parti-parti Anak-Anak Negeri Sabah dan Sarawak boleh bersama- sama dengan UMNO dan BN, Kerajaan Persekutuan akan selamat walau pun orang Cina bersatu di belakang DAP. Apabila merek merasa bahawa keadaan itu akan merugikan mereka, mereka akan mula berfikir semula untuk berkerjasama dengan BN. Orang Cina membuat perkiraan mengikut untung-rugi. Itu sahajalah prinsip mereka.

Kita sekali-kali tidak hendak meminggirkan orang Cina. Semenjak PRU 1955, UMNO memberi kawasan-kawasan majority Melayu yang selamat kepada calon-calon MCA dan MIC semata-mata untuk memberi representasi yang lebih kepada mereka. Apa yang berlaku selepas PRU13 pun adalah pilihan mereka sendiri. Pengundi-pengundi Cina yang berdiri sebulat suara di belakang DAP mungkin akan berfikir semula apabila mereka menimbang semula untung-ruginya.

Pengundi-pengundi India patut bertanya diri mereka sama ada Kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat akn menjaga kepentingan mereka lebih baik daripada rekod BN selama lebih daripada lima dekad.

Umur PKR terikat dengan umur Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, tidak lebih dari itu.

Kerajaan mestilah bersikap tegas dan tidak melayan tuntutan-tuntutan melampau itu. Malah tindakan undang-undang hendaklah diambil terhadap mereka jika mereka melanggarnya. Di kebelakangan ini, Kerajaan nampak seolah-olah takut mengambil tindakan undang-undang terhadap aktivis yang menyebabkan mereka semakin melampau. Malah ada aktivis yang menghina lagu Kebangsaan yang bukan sahaja tidak dihadapkan ke mahkamah tetapi diberi bantuan kewangan untuk membuat film yang memburukkan Malaysia. Cuba bayangkan bagaimana Singapura akan bertindak dalam keadaan yang serupa. Seperti disebut tadi, Kerajaan mestilah memberi pertimbangan serius untuk mengadakan semula ISA. Pelampau hanya faham ketegasan, bukan diplomasi.

Pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO juga patut sedar diri. Sebenarnya UMNO sebagai sebuah parti Melayu berada di atas landasan yang betul. Yang dipersoalkan ialah pemimpin-pemimpinnya. Mereka, isteri dan anak-anak mereka dilihat sebagi hidup mewah di luar kemampuan mereka yang membangkitkan isu rasuah. Saya dapati, politik wang dan tertutupnya pintu untuk “orang baru” memasuki dan memenangi apa-apa jawatan dalam hierarchy UMNO adalah faktor utama mengapa kalangan professional tidak menyertai UMNO. Mereka lebih mendapat tempat dalam PAS. Jika hal ini berterusan UMNO akan ketandusan pemimpin. Hal ini telah pun dirasai hari ini.
