Berita Harian: “Saya berkata yang benar, bukan mencari publisiti murahan dan tidak akan berganjak daripada pendirian,” tegas Mufti Perak, Tan Sri Dr Harussani Zakaria.

Sambil menegaskan tanggungjawabnya mengingatkan umat Islam, Harussani berkata, istilah ‘bughah’ tidak terhad hanya penentangan terhadap kerajaan yang adil, sebaliknya merangkumi kerajaan yang sah dipilih melalui sistem demokrasi berperlembagaan.

I am very lucky to have the chance to speak to the Perak Mufti at the end of last year.

Tan Sri Dr Harussani Zakaria is a great man.

The ramp to the Penang Second Bridge which is still under construction collapsed yesterday evening at about 7:15pm at Lebuhraya  Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu in Batu Maung, Penang.

At least one person was killed and three others were injured in the incident.

It is reported that a search camera has detected an unmoving arm in a white Perodua Kelisa lying crushed under tons of concrete and steel.

Berita Harian said that it took a long time to pull out the victim in the Kelisa because the car was trapped under steels and concrete that was estimated to weigh about 300 ton so it needed special machineries and proper plans as not to cause more disaster.

It was reported that the rescuers may be able to free the body this evening.

The Star reported that, “the car plate number with some digits missing is ‘PF?347?’ “

The authorities are still investigating the cause of the disaster.

I am sad and sorry for the victims, their families and friends.
