An hour ago, my father called and told us a very sad news that Ustaz Muhammad ‘Uthman El-Muhammady just passed away after Maghrib.
On the 16th March 2013, Antara Pos and Agenda Daily had released videos of a group of reporters chasing the opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim for his comment on the photos believed to be from a video featuring a man who looked very similar to him.
Please read: Tanya Sama Anwar
Here are the videos which were released by Antara Pos and Agenda Daily:
Fitnah jijik UMNO termasuk you menjelang pilihan raya
Seorang menggunakan media untuk menyebarkan fitnah
Nama dia Melayu Muslim
During minute 1:22 of the video from Antara Pos, Anwar Ibrahim denied being the man in the photo/video saying, “This is a disgusting defamation by UMNO including you (the reporter). Somebody who uses the media to spread lies. His/Her name is Malay Muslim”. Then one of his supporters called the reporter a munafik or hypocrite.
Why must Anwar became so angry and accused that the reporter is part of the ‘so called’ political gimmick when…

Bo la Wei is a lovely song in the Kelantanese dialect. Complete with kompangs, gongs and even serunais, this song is composed in a traditional Kelantanese folk style. The singer and composer, Eddie Hamid, wrote this song pleading for the people of Kelantan to open their eyes and see the problems they are facing under the PAS government. Despite the simple everyday words in the lyrics (it may be the sort of discussion you could hear between friends over a cup of ‘teh tarik’), Eddie Hamid captured the rhythm so well and one can hear his frustration in his singing which subconciously urge you to think again.
Unfortunately however, Eddie Hamid had been threatened by the opposition for composing this song. I find it most baffling because I fail to see his fault in composing this song other than that he pleads (and not even demand) for change in his homestate. Didn’t DAP release the ‘Ubah Rocket Style’ video (a parody of Gangnam Style) to aid their campaign? Isn’t Ubah Rocket Style all about change and highlighting their own discontent over the current government? In fact, Ubah Rocket Style is even worse for it not only ‘made fun’ of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansur in such an offensive way but accused her of things without proof to support the accusations.
Pakatan Rakyat complains that BN gives no room for freedom of speech. But yet, none of the creators or actors involved in the Ubah Rocket Style parody were threatened over the videos by either the police (whom they claimed to be nothing but pawns of the BN leaders), the BN leaders themselves or their supporters.
As it happened numerous times before, Pakatan Rakyat proves that they do not care tuppence for freedom of speech. Remember Mr. Benji Lim from the Bersih 3.0?
What happened to Mr. Benji Lim’s freedom of speech? Anwar Ibrahim, leader of Pakatan Rakyat could simply ordered Benji to be dragged out of the room against his consent. Benji’s crime was… practicing freedom of speech. And when a reporter asked him questions that he chose not to answer, he would simply shut him up by saying, “Oh, UMNO tak payahlah.”
Anwar also learned a new trick that may prove useful for the rest of us. Apparently, repeating a question is a crime by the opposition’s rule of law; so the offender could be sued for repeating a question.
Thank you, Dato’ Seri for this very useful tip. Now I can’t help but feeling that the new band, ‘NoDirectionShow’s latest hit song ‘Krisis air’ a marvellous insight into Pakatan Rakyat.
I had heard this song months ago as Anwar sang it almost everytime he gives one of his political talks.
Tanya sama Najib
Apa sebab goyang
Nanti jawab Najib
Sabah nak HILANG!
Back then, I was baffled by the point of the song. Of all the states, why Sabah? Is Sabah the only state Pakatan Rakyat felt hopeful for? If so, I would have thought that they should not advertise that fact; as Sabah alone cannot help them reach Putrajaya.
After all, Pakatan Rakyat won 5 states during the last general elections without singing such songs. Why are they gloating over one specific achievement? And by the way, what is that ‘achievement’?
Surprisingly, it was the Phillipines government who hit the nail on the head. They had discovered the connection between the Malaysian opposition party and the sultanate of Sulu as reported by the The Phillipines Inquirer on their article: ‘Gov’t intel eyes 3 groups abetting Sulu sultan’s claim’ (click here to read)
Whether the heirs of the sultanate of Sulu acted on their own to reclaim Sabah or were instigated by an external force to do so, one thing is certain, according to government intelligence sources: It was a business that proved too big for the heirs to handle on their own.
But apparently “some people” want to push it forward now. And why now, at this time, is one of the questions government intelligence is looking into.
“These are groups that wanted to ride on the Kirams’ pursuit with their own interests in mind,” one of the sources said.
Another source added: “There are a lot who can gain from this, not just in the Philippines but in Malaysia as well.”
The third group is allegedly the Malaysian political opposition, which is gearing up for general elections that may be called before June.
The intelligence officer said that one member of the Malaysian political opposition allied with Anwar Ibrahim was running for a post in Sabah.
“Apparently, this politician was one of those who spoke with the Kirams. He supposedly gave the opposition’s support to the Kirams’ claim to Sabah,” the source said. (The Phillipines Inquirer)
Needless to say, our medias quickly picked up the news and it spread like wildfire. Of course, Anwar sued TV3 and Utusan Malaysia for linking him to the Lahad Datu incident and not the real source of the news; infact he even denied the existence of such claims in The Phillipines Inquirer.
This had happened before when Nurul Izzah blamed Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia for ‘twisting her statements’ when it was the opposition-linked news portal, Malaysia Kini who first reported the news and both Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia only ‘picked up’ the news from Malaysia Kini.
Ironically, the article does not mention Najib AT ALL as Anwar had claimed. Apparently, what he accused UMNO of “incapable of thinking of anything else” might be a subconcious confession of his own.
Can this Lahad Datu incident be the achievement Anwar was gloating about? Can Anwar be among the heartless and selfless plotters behind this violence? Is that why the first person who claimed that the Lahad Datu incident as a conspiracy was the vice-president of PKR, Tian Chua?
Anyway, a popular blogger Husin Lempoyang wrote that Anwar did not finish the song; so he continued the song for Anwar:
Tanya pada Sabah, apa sebab hilang
Nanti jawab Sabah, Sulu nak serang
Tanya pada Sulu, apa sebab serang
Nanti jawab Sulu, Anwar yang rancang.
Tanya pada Anwar, apa sebab rancang
Nanti jawab Anwar, inilah kerja Pakatan..
Saya sudah bilang, jangan ulang ulang
Kalau ulang ulang, I saman you …
Semalam saya menonton rancangan Helo Malaysia di Bernama TV yang membincangkan topik ‘Pengkhianat Negara’. Rancangan forum itu dihoskan oleh Sharkawi Jirim dan ahli-ahli panelnya ialah Tan Sri Zaman Khan dan Dr Azmi Hassan.
Antara perkara yang menarik perhatian saya ialah bila Sharkawi Jirim berkata:
Kadang-kadang saya tiba-tiba terfikirlah kepada mereka yang menganggap mereka rakyat Malaysia, tetapi pada masa yang sama saya menganggap mereka adalah pengkhianat, terutamanya kepada mereka yang menganggap ini (kes Lahad Datu) sebagai konspirasi politik. Bagi saya, mereka ini adalah manusia-manusia yang berhati batu… Sebab tu ada yang bertanding di kawasan parlimen Batu.
Menarik, bukan? Manusia berhati batu, bertanding di parlimen Batu. Soalnya siapakah manusia itu?
Adakah ini manusia yang dimaksudkan olen Sharkawi Jirim sebagai manusia yang berhati batu yang bertanding di kawasan parlimen Batu?
