Fantastic Facts and Funnies

Just shut up and learn your lesson. Boy!

When I first read this report on The Malaysian Insider I wanted to blog my own comments and opinion about what was reported. I just couldn't find the words. So I am re-printing the complete article for you to read here. You decide. The highlights, however, are mine.

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin, said today the Attorney General’s decision to
let two Al-Islam magazine journalists off the hook for allegedly desecrating Catholic Communion hosts should not matter so long as the magazine has “learned its lesson from this episode.”

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders including the DAP’s Lim Kit Siang and PAS central committee member Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa, however, believe the decision not to charge the two may send a negative signal that the rule of law can be undermined by politics.

Khairy told The Malaysian Insider that it would be inappropriate to speculate on the reason behind the decision by the AG’s chambers to take no further action.

He, however, argued that the decision may have been reached to “balance out” the racial and religious tension caused by the “Allah” row in a bid to prevent further unease.

The “Allah” row had triggered a nationwide uproar among conservative Muslims. The tension escalated into attacks on houses of worships of both Christians and Muslims.

The attacks also tarnished Malaysia’s moderate credentials among the international community.

“I don’t want to speculate on the reason..but there are things that you can take to court and others best to leave it to other sensible ways for solution,” Khairy said.

“But I feel that whether or not the charges are dropped is not important. What is important is that people learn from this lesson and I am sure that the magazine has learned its lesson from this episode,” he added.

The two Al-Islam journalists had pretended to be Christians and took part in a Catholic Mass to probe allegations that Muslims were being converted.

In their article, the two admitted to receiving Holy Communion — which is in the form of bread which Catholics believe changes to the body of Jesus Christ through the rite. They said they subsequently spat it out in what Catholics consider an act of desecration.

A police report was subsequently lodged against the two journalists.

The duo were then investigated under Section 298A (1) of the Penal Code for causing disharmony, disunity or feelings of enmity, hatred or ill will, or prejudicing the maintenance of harmony or unity, on grounds of religion.

It was reported yesterday that the Dang Wangi district police headquarters, through the officer in charge of the case, had sent a letter to the complainant telling him that the AG’s office would not be pressing charges.

No reason was given for the decision.

Lim said the decision not to charge the two indicate the lack of seriousness by the authorities to safeguard domestic religious harmony.

“The decision shows the AG is not serious in protecting and safeguarding religious and racial harmony in the context of a plural and multi-racial Malaysia,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

Mujahid on the other hand agreed with Khairy that it was not apt to speculate on the reason behind the decision to drop the charges.

But he regretted the possibility that politics could have been behind the decision to drop the case.

“They might have strong reasons to do so. It may be for security reasons but there has been much doubt about this (even if its true) as many of its (AG’s chambers) decision are done due to political reasons,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

The Parit Buntar MP also agreed that the decision may be connected to the “Allah” row and that it was done to prevent further tension.

But he said the authority should tackle the negative perception that it is upholding the law based on religious and political considerations.

NIAMAH!!!

it's rampant: doing things that are morally questionable in order to prove the other wrong. Rais has three women caned months after Kartika is supposed to have been, in order to set the precedent for caning women, to justify her impending but as yet unmeted punishment. then these two idiots go and willingly take communion in order to "prove" the church is converting muslims to christianity?!

it's like they want to be martyrs but... i cannot even search in the lowest portals of my intellect to explain and articulate their moral stupidity. you know the saying acting like a martyr is like swallowing poison and waiting for the other person to die? to teach them a lesson? except in this case, they're trumpeting their stupidity proudly.

Perhaps those 2 journalist are trying to convert. If you are there to observe mass you can just watch, why would you go and accept the holy communion?

There are many progressive Malays in Malaysia who unfortunately have little voice in the country's policy-making. Some of them are like Zaid Ibrahim, Amir Muhammad, Karim Raslan, Khairy Jamaluddin, Amde Sidek, Azly Rahman, M.Bakri Musa, Kassim Ahmad, Suflan Shamsuddin, Othman Ali, Harris Ibrahim, Zainah Anwar, Norani Othman, & surprisingly Marina Mahathir (who thank Allah not inheriting her father’s racist maverick genes, and many many more.

It's about time the learned/educated malays say something, because all this while the 'pariahs' and village idiots are given prime time and street protest space. Ibrahim The Frog Ali is like Mark Anthony in Macbeth - so Melayus beware also of Rauf, Nasir.
Jangan biar PERKASA perkosa Melayu. UMNO and Ibrahim The Frog Ali are so desperate as their popularity, power and "Ringgit Malaysia" is declining and diminishing.

Ketuanan Melayu, if I had to loosely translate it, means "The Master Race". The last person to use that term was Hitler. Ketuanan Melayu like you said, is Un-Islamic, un-dignified, uncultured, and definitely stupid. Unless we treat each other with respect, and consider ourselves, all as Malaysians, then we can take that step forward. Ketuanan Melayu is a dirty word, it is fascism, it is racism, and it is hideous. It definitely tarnishes the word Melayu. Bringing it ever closer to Nazi.

Liberation Movement of Malays to join Pakatan Rakyat Malaysia :
A Liberation Movement from the poison of UMNO who are feeding peanuts to poor Malays while plundering the nation of it's riches.
1) Denunciation of Apartheid/Fascism
2) Denunciation of Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy
3) Espousal of Equality for all Ethnicities and Faiths as per the Hadiths of Islam AND Human Rights Charter.

They (UMNO) are slowly turning Malaysia into a Pakistan, there are thousands of Pakistanis working in the Middle East both skilled and unskilled, and many skilled ones are in US and UK. When the oil wells dry up Malaysia can export all her skill workers which to some extent she has already done so, but Malaysia can also exports the female graduates to other countries as servants, maids and nanny, how about that 1Malaysia?

What Ku Li said is not a surprise to me, I have Malay friends who are working overseas and refuse to come back to their mother land, infact one of them (my beer and fishing kaki) chided me for coming back to Malaysia after spending some years overseas.

The AG will undoubtedly take the same stance pertaining to the cow head saga. What if it had been the other way round if a Catholic had gone to a mosque and desecrated some holy articles? Would the AG drop charges or would he press more charges? The world is watching such activities repeatedly occuring in Malaysia. Is this in keeping with the so called 1Malaysia? It appears that what is good for the goose is not good for the gander. God is watching coz heaven has eyes!!!

Roti Telur Man said...

Hello Pat,

Personally, I see no BIG DEAL with the 2 Muslims spitting out that whatsoever BREAD one might call it.

Those 2 journalist dudes are of course Muslims & for them to swallow that whatsoever BREAD is indeed WRONG. These 2 dudes RESPECTED Catholics by putting that 'ROTI' into their mouth but as Muslims themselves; they cannot 'TELAN' it. Thus, the BEST WAY to deal with such situation is to put that ROTI into their mouth (as an act of RESPECT for Catholics) & then spit it out (as an act of RESPECT to their own religion).

What's the problem??? If I'm a MUSLIM...I also will do the same thing. Catholics are just making a PLAIN NUISANCE HOO-HA over NOTHING. Why don't they put their time into better use??? Hmmm....such as PRAYING for PEACE.

My comment makes sense, rite???

i am a malaysian, i am supposed to know that this is a multiracial country but even I cannot stop thinking that this is a Malay country. After all, the name is Malay-sia. So Malays and muslims have every right to bend the rule and/or do whatever they want to belittle and undermine other religions because it is their right.

I hope that someone kicks this idiot monkey leader in his balls and then the police say it is no case since he did not die. Even if he dies, the police will say no case because the person who kicked him learned his lesson that it is wrong to kick someone in the balls.

Then I would say hip hip hooray to this idiot monkey's logic. In the meantime, it is best that this idiot keeps his mouth shut and shave off the stupid looking goatee which makes him looks like a cross breed between a monkey, an ass and the devils reincarnate.

Since KJ do not speculate, I take it as a fact when he said "to balance out". If that is the case he must have premonition powers because the Al-Islam magazine journalists' church incident took place well before the high court Allah ruling and the subsequent attacks on the churches.

1Malaysia is a concept that attempts to 'formalize' the exisiting nature of Malaysians. A society comprised of multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural people, co-existing in harmony.

In other words, it is just putting a name on something that already exists.

If that was the end of it, I'd have no problems with it. But it's not. It's just the beginning.

I'm sure I can't be the only one to notice that it is only AFTER the 1Malaysia campaign, that we see increasing incidences reflecting racial tension, cultural confusion and general dissatisfaction.

The sudden usage of animal heads being thrown at places of worship.
The sudden mantras of 'Us Againsts Them'.
The sudden awareness of the color of our skin.

This is what you get when you highlight our differences.
I'm sorry, but that is essentially what 1Malaysia does. It highlights our differences.

Najib says the Malaysian economy is out of the woods and we are poised to do better this year. From what you see around you, do you agree?

The economy did not do as badly as anticipated last year because of the pump priming and fiscal stimulus packages.

Over 113,000 projects worth RM17 billion under two stimulus packages are being pushed through. So far, the govern­ment has paid out RM14 billion of public funds on these projects.

Can such pump priming be sustained?

What about confidence in the political leadership?

Anonymous said...

Najib Abdul Razak's pronouncement that Malaysia is out of the economic woods is but a smokescreen to hoodwink the unenlightened public and the kampong folks. There is no doubt that our FDI has plummeted, foreign investors are wary because of the racism and unstable political climate here.

Najib should go to the ground and see for himself how average (not BN political plunderers) Malaysians are trying to keep their heads above water. His denial syndrome is not going to fool anyone. Soon we'll be exporting Malaysian maids and manual labourers to Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia.

I pity the next generation of Malaysians who will be paying for our past and current culture of 'entitled' corruption. Wake up or we're done for.

The Star Cosy Relationship with Convicted Criminals

I am one of the many victims of Ooi Boon Leong, the former director of MEMS TECHNOLOGY BERHAD who was convicted with his CFO, both who were convicted at the Sessions Court on 25th February.

The funny thing is that there was a Star Online article on the conviction, the same article NEVER made in to the Star proper !

There is a pattern here. In April 2009, the same 2 directors were reported be charged and reported
in the Star Online and amazing enough, it also was not published in the Star proper.

One wonders whether the editors at the Star were persuaded not to do so with an incentive. BTW, I had alerted Datuk Wong Chun Wai via his New Malaysia Blog but he chose not to publish this alert of mine. Wong Chun Wai is a Penang Lang and so is OBL... Is there a connection ? I think OTK must know about this abomination.

Please read the following Star Online article as follows :-

Former directors fined RM300,000 each for overstating revenue (Updated)
By M. MAGESWARI
mages@thestar.com.my
KUALA LUMPUR: Two former directors of a public-listed company were fined RM300,000 each by a Sessions Court here on Thursday after they admitted to overstating RM30mil in their investment holding company’s revenue.

Ooi Boon Leong, 49, was a director and an audit committee member of MEMS Technology Bhd while Tan Yeow Teck, 49, was its chief financial officer and an executive director.

In sentencing, Sessions Court judge Asmadi Hussin ordered each accused to pay his fine or serve two years in jail.

The two were said to have knowingly authorised the furnishing of a misleading statement to Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd in Bukit Kewangan on Sept 27, 2007.

The misleading statement is contained in the report “MEMS Technology Berhad Condensed Consolidated Income Statements for the 12-month period ended July 31, 2007.”

Upon hearing their verdict, the two, who had resigned from their posts, were composed.

Pleading for leniency, their lawyer Francis Ng Aik Guan asked the court to consider that his clients had already been publicly reprimanded and fined by Bursa Malaysia for overlapping breaches pertaining to the same unaudited accounts for that financial year.

Ng said Ooi had been fined RM89,000 while Tan had been fined RM197,500 in October 2008.

He said both would be disqualified from holding directors’ positions upon their conviction, which would also affect their livelihood.

He said his clients were remorseful over their actions and had sincerely recorded their plea of guilt.

He asked the court to consider that his clients had contributed for the growth of the nation and to transfer of technology through their roles in the company.

In pressing for a deterrent sentence, prosecuting officer Shanti Geoffrey asked the court to consider public interest and the seriousness of the offence.

“Investors were misled with a statement issued to Bursa Malaysia on Sept 27, 2007, which was approved by both accused.

“In the false statement, out of RM73,416mil recorded for revenue, RM30,169mil worth of sales did not take place. The false sales comprised 41% of the overall revenue,” she said.

Geoffrey said investors were misled and suffered losses due to the false information, while both accused enjoyed revenue from their wrongful actions.

She said that Ooi was a substantial shareholder in MEMS Technology with over 38 million shares while Tan held 270,800 shares.

She said it was a planned crime where both accused had took about a year to generate and insert false sales in the accounts of its subsidiary company.

“Both are qualified accountants, they knew very well what they were doing,”she said, adding that elements of forgery and cheating were involved in committing the offence.

She said both accused had also failed to carry out their duty to shareholders and that their actions had affected the confidence of investors in the company.

PKR should have fielded better candidates for the 2008 general elections but before one flails PKR, take into account the condition in 2008. Back then, very few people of calibre wanted to stand under the PKR banner as they felt it was a 'sure loser'. PKR was almost wiped out in 2004 and they managed only to retain one seat.

They had so few choices so they had to field some low-quality candidates for those seats they did not expect to win. But these candidate instead won because of the political 'tsunami'. Of course, getting good candidates will not be a problem for the next general elections. The headache then will be selecting from so many good candidates.

There are a lot of theories bandying around concerning how Khairy will be orchestrating his moves and strategically unfolding them in the years to come. We all know we haven’t seen the last of someone as ruthlessly ambitious as he is. We have a theory circling the Internet that he could be working covertly with Anwar where he sees his best hopes for Prime Ministership lie. No doubt if this were true, that means in a post-Anwar period as Malaysia’s future PM, Khairy could step up to the plate. There is another theory that involves Khairy moving in the undercurrents of UMNO’s political turmoil, looking to seize the advantage, sight unseen, as and when the opportunities arise. With his political career and aspirations in tatters, he can no longer rely on the UMNO Youth faction where he was once quite powerful. With Hishamuddin offering rearguard defence for his inept playboy PM cousin, Khairy doesn’t have a lot of manoeuvrability – at least not yet.
Whichever of the two is more plausible, there is no denying that there is no love lost between Khairy and his immediate enemies as well as those of his father-in-law’s. Either way, Khairy will be poised to dismantle Najib’s administration since everyone in the cabinet has played him out including those who had sworn allegiance to back him in the heady past. However since everything in politics is about money, he’d soon realised that even his political amigos could so easily be bought over.
The bad blood between Khairy and the rest of Najib’s administration has long been downplayed but in the run up to the next General Election, it will be instrumental. As a balancing act of power, Khairy holds a very important pivotal sword that could either raise Anwar Ibrahim to premiership or the other way around. He holds the sword (or keris as it were) that will indefinitely spill blood.
The question is whose blood it would be.
