SIS Forum Sdn Bhd recently posted this image on their Instagram page:
I was really shocked by the photo and the caption!
The big smiles shows that they are proud of their actions, how sad.
SIS Forum is against the amendments of the Act 355 to empower the Shariah Courts, the government’s stance on Kalimah Allah issue, fatwas, the Islamic authorities and other Islamic policies and the teaching of Islam.
On the other hand, SIS Forum fights for LGBT rights, liberalism, pluralism, wrong interpretation of the holy Quran and other matters against Islam.
Sis Forum is also a member of two anti-government coalition, BERSIH and COMANGO.
BERSIH that received funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute (OSI) and National Democratic Institute (NDI), makes malicious and slanderous accusations not only towards UMNO but also towards PM Najib, and their main activity is organising illegal anti-government demonstrations in which they humiliate PM Najib and in its latest demonstration, BERSIH demonstrators are calling for PM Najib to step down.
COMANGO is a loose coalition of NGOs that made false accusations regarding human rights in Malaysia and demands the government of Malaysia to sign the UNHRC treaties that are against Islam, the Federal Constitution, the Rukun Negara (National Principles) and the laws of our country.
So, what is going on with Puteri UMNO and what are they trying to prove?
Is this an action of being politically mature or are they trying to stab UMNO in the back?
For their information, DAPSY will not be doing such thing together with PERKASA unless PERKASA makes a u-turn on its stance regarding Islam and the Malays.
What can they gain politically from inviting SIS Forum to their event?
If they think that political gain is not important for them despite they are an UMNO wing at the time when the general election is looming near; then I’m speechless.
Can’t those Puteri UMNO think of the consequences of their actions; that by working together with SIS Forum, they are giving the impression that they can tolerate and respect SIS Forum’s liberal and anti-government ideology?
Or are they really moving towards that path and away from UMNO’s ‘demi agama, bangsa dan tanahair’?
Next, perhaps they can invite leaders of SIS Forum as speakers for their programs.
Above are three images of ‘the new Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’ after he left UMNO, the party that once made him the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
The first image was taken at the High Court of Kuala Lumpur on September 5, 2015, when he made a surprise court visit in support of Anwar Ibrahim, during Anwar’s NSC suit.
It was Dr Mahathir who sacked Anwar Ibrahim from the Deputy Prime Minister post before Anwar was sent to jail.
The second image was taken on November 19, 2016, during the illegal Bersih 5 demonstration in Kuala Lumpur.
In the photo, Mahathir, wearing a Bersih 5 t-shirt was seen shouting like a mad demonstrator, when during his days as the Prime Minister, he was against demonstrations and looked down at demonstrators.
The third image shows Dr Mahathir proudly wears a ‘Free Anwar Now’ badge, another odd situation after what he did and said about Anwar when he was still in power.
What is happening to Dr Mahathir?
Dr Mahathir was once a statesman and condemned Bersih demonstrators as wanting to topple a legally elected government.
But now he eagerly took part in the illegal Bersih demonstration which was led by the party that he once hates.
Like Bersih leaders, he too wants and trying hard to bring down the legally elected government; an action which he used to condemn.
He had changed from a statesman to a street demonstrator, taking part in an illegal demonstration to topple a legal government.
Dr Maharhir had changed from a great and smart leader to a person easily used by his enemy turns ally, as claimed by “DAP’s Superman” Hew Kuan Yau.
According to Hew Kuan Yau, DAP is only using Mahathir to bring down Najib.
Dr Mahathir used to say that,” Melayu mudah lupa” but now it is clear that it is actually Mahathir who mudah lupa.
“I am a Malay first!” stated Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as he accused DAP’s Parliamentary Leader, Lim Kit Siang’s statement as “to put a wedge between the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister.”
That happened six years ago when Tan Sri Muhyiddin was still the Deputy Prime Minister and the, “I am a Malay first” was regarded as a heroic statement by the members of UMNO, in accordance with UMNO’s spirit of “alif, ba, ta (agama, bangsa dan tanahair)” or religion, race and nation.
Below is the video of his statement originally released by MalaysiaKini’s KiniTV.
But now the former Deputy Prime Minister seems to change his mind.
He joined Tun Dr. Mahathir to team up with the enemies of UMNO who are against Islam, the Malay rights and the Federal Constitution such as Lim Kit Siang, Tony Pua, Teresa Kok, Tian Chua, Ambiga Sreenevasan, Maria Chin, and others.
By teaming up with those enemies of UMNO, he is now against his own party and what he said six years ago.
When he said, “I am a Malay first”, it automatically means he is also saying that he is a Muslim first because according to the interpretation of Malay in the Clause 2 of the Article 160 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia:
“…“Malay” means a person who professes the religion of Islam, habitually speaks the Malay language, conforms to Malay custom…”
So how could he becomes teammates with Lim Kit Siang and happily sharing a couch with him?
Has Tan Sri Muhyiddin forgotten that Lim Kit Siang had rudely made a malicious accusation that a verse from the Quran, the verse 120 of Surah Al-Baqarah caused religious hatred and blamed JAKIM for using the verse in a Khutbah Jumaat?
By teaming up with Lim Kit Siang who is clearly against Islam and the Malay rights, Tan Sri Muhyiddin is now against his own principles of Malay first.
His other new teammate, Tony Pua among others had humiliated the law and principals of Islam by making fun of the Islamic view regarding Valentines Day.
In his Chinese New Year video, Tony Phua again makes fun of the Muslims by mocking a Saudi Arabian Muslim in a very humiliated ways.
Another new teammate of Tan Sri Muhyiddin, Teresa Kok had ordered the Jawi script on road signs of Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Taman Seputeh to be abolished.
Jawi is the original script of the Malay language, and the Malay Language is the national Language according to the Article 152 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
(1) The national language shall be the Malay language and shall be in such script…
Tian Chua who is another of Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s new teammate, on February 2013 made a malicious and uncalled comment about the Lahad Datu standoff saying that the death of ten policemen and soldiers from our PDRM and ATM including nine Malays who were protecting Lahad Datu was just a “sandiwara UMNO” or a theatrical staged by UMNO as a conspiracy to distract and scare the people because of the general election.
Ambiga and Maria Chin are both Bersih leaders that organised illegal demonstrations against the government, creating havoc and disorder and promoting the anarchy ideology which is against the principals of the Malay and Islam.
They, who are also behind COMANGO, are fighting for the LGBT rights which is against Islam apart from fighting for parts of the Islamic laws to be abolished.
COMANGO demands Malaysia to:
Sign the International Covenant on Civil & Political Rights (ICCPR) which is against the Articles 3(1) and 11(4) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
Sign the International Covenant on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) which is against Article 153 of the Federal Constitution that gives special rights and position of the Malays and the Bumiputras (indigenous people of the Sabah and Sarawak).
Sign SOGI Rights (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity) to legalise LGBTIQ which is against Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution and also the Malaysian law.
Demands that some enactments of the Syariah Law to be abolished which is against Article 3(1) and against the second principle of the Rukun Negara that says, “Loyalty to the king and country,” because the king is the protector of Islam.
What Bersih and COMANGO are fighting for are against the Federal Constitution as Islam is the religion of the Federation.
Tan Sri Muhyiddin whom once claimed to be a Malay first, has now become teammates with people who are against Islam and the special rights and position of the Malays and the Bumiputras.
Maybe now he has changed his mind about being a Malay first for, on the 27th of February 2016, he made a new statement:
“Ketepikan sentimen kaum, agama dan ideologi untuk ke arah mewujudkan sebuah kerajaan yang adil, amanah dan berintegriti.”
Isn’t it weird that just because he is against the Prime Minister, his personal principals and views have changed and he is now teammates to the people who are trying to destroy his party that had once made him a Deputy Prime Minister?
Is Lim Kit Siang more Malay and Islamic than PM Najib to the former Deputy Prime Minister?
His actions hurt the Malays and UMNO members who had voted for him.
Yesterday, was a big day for the Malays, when the city of Kuala Lumpur was flooded by “baju merah” to mark their support for the legitimately elected government after the “baju kuning” of illegal Bersih 4 demonstration claimed that they are the voices of the nation.
The rally was a great success despite the instigation made by people whose idea about human rights and freedom of speech is, ‘it is our right to organise a rally to bash the government, Article 3(1) and Article 153 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia’ but ‘it is racist to organise a rally to support the government, Article 3(1) and Article 153 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.’
I am proud of my country and do not want the sovereignty of my country to be ‘invaded’ by foreign powers and ideologies.
Our country has always been peaceful apart from the racial riot of 13 May 1969 that killed a lot of innocent people that was started by people who are selfish and do not respect the Federal Constitution.
To protect the stability of our country and to avoid such tragedy, the government then amended the Akta Hasutan.
Now the people who call themselves as human right activists are again questioning some Articles in our Federal Constitution and want the Akta Hasutan to be abolished.
And they are the people who are behind the Bersih illegal demonstration.
Are they being fair when they demand their rights but deny the rights of others?
We must learn from history and learn to respect each others’ rights to maintain racial harmony and we can start from listening to what had been said by our great forefathers:
The Bersih 4 demonstrators left trash around the city of Kuala Lumpur after their illegal demonstration ended.
When warned that the organisers of Bersih 4 could be asked to pay a RM65,000 clean-up bill, its leader, Maria Chin told Malay Mail Online that:
“We haven’t receive anything yet but it’ll be disappointing if it comes because it is the duty of DBKL to clean up and our volunteers tried our best to clean up as much as possible.”
“They also forget that it is DBKL’s duty to clean up the city so they should be cleaning up anyways.” – The Malay Mail Online.
How could Maria Chin made such a rude and unfair statement?
Does she has any respect for the DBKL workers?
They are not Bersih’s employers who were paid to clean up after their illegal and dirty demonstration.
Of course, it is DBKL’s duty to clean up the city; but littering in the city is an offence and those who litter can be fined.
So, it is an offence for the demonstrators to leave trash around the city after their illegal demonstration, but instead of taking her responsibility as a leader, Maria told DBKL to clean up as if they are employed by Bersih.
She is responsible for the mess left by the demonstrators of her own illegal demonstration but she is putting the responsibility on others.
Bersih demands for a fair election but Bersih’s leader is not a fair person; in fact her statement shows that she is a very irresponsible person.
She must learn to be fair to others before asking others to be fair.
The demonstrators should be ashamed of themselves to have such a leader if they are sane enough to think wisely.
Not only they participated in an illegal demonstration and litter on the streets which is against the law, their leader does not feel sorry and has no respect for the DBKL workers for the extra works caused by them; just because, “it is DBKL’s duty to clean up the city so they should be cleaning up anyways.”
I think the organisers should call their illegal demonstration Kotor 4 instead of Bersih 4 because not only they do not understand how to obey the law, they also fail to understand that others do not like them to dirty our city.
The Malaysia Insider reported that a “group of retired Malay civil servants of G25 against religious extremism plans to seek an audience with the Malay rulers to petition for a committee that will review the application of Islam in Malaysian law.”
G25 wrote an open letter (please click here for the open letter) dated December 7, 2014 among others expressed that they are disturbed and deeply dismayed “over the continuing unresolved disputes on the position and application of Islamic laws in this country” and stated that “the teachings of our faith must continue to evolve” to be relevant.
They wrote that:
“The on-going debate over these matters display a lack of clarity and understanding on the place of Islam within our constitutional democracy.”
Actually, there should not be any question about the place of Islam within our constitution because it is clearly stated in Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia that Islam is the religion of the Federation and the oath pledged by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong as in accordance to Article 37(1) is made in the name of Allah, “Wallahi Wabillahi Watallahi” and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong pledges to uphold Islam at all time.
Article 3(1) said that:
“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.”
Article 37(1) stated that the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong needs to take his oath before exercising his functions:
“The Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall before exercising his functions take and subscribe before the Conference of Rulers and in the presence of the Chief Justice of the Federal Court (or in his absence the next senior judge of the Federal Court available) the oath of office set out in Part I of the Fourth Schedule; and the oath shall be attested by two persons appointed for the purpose by the Conference of Rulers.”
The oath pledged by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong:
“Wallahi: Wabillahi: Watallahi,
Maka dengan lafaz ini berikrarlah Kami dengan sesungguhnya dan dengan sebenarnya mengaku akan taat setia pada menjalankan dengan adilnya pemerintahan bagi Malaysia dengan mengikut sebagaimana undang-undang dan Perlembagaan yang telah disahkan dan dimasyurkan dan akan disah dan dimasyurkan di masa hadapan ini. Dan lagi Kami berikrar mengaku dengan sesungguh dan dengan sebenarnya memeliharakan pada setiap masa Agama Islam dan berdiri tetap di atas permintaan yang adil dan aman di dalam Negeri.”
G25 also wrote:
“We refer specifically to the current situation where religious bodies seem to be asserting authority beyond their jurisdiction; where issuance of various fatwa violate the Federal Constitution and breach the democratic and consultative process of shura; where the rise of supremacist NGOs accusing dissenting voices of being anti-Islam, anti-monarchy and anti-Malay has made attempts at rational discussion and conflict resolution difficult; and most importantly, where the use of the Sedition Act hangs as a constant threat to silence anyone with a contrary opinion. These developments undermine Malaysia’s commitment to democratic principles and rule of law, breed intlerance and bigotry, and have heightened anxieties over national peace and stability.”
Contrary to the accusation made by G25, the religious bodies are not “asserting authority beyond their jurisdiction“, but they are doing their job to uphold Islam as the religion of the Federation as stated under Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution.
“…the rise of supremacist NGOs accusing dissenting voices of being anti-Islam, anti-monarchy and anti-Malay has made attempts at rational discussion and conflict resolution difficult…” – G25
From the above statement I guess the NGOs that G25 called supremacist are the Malay and Islamic NGOs who are fighting to uphold Islam which is the religion of the Federation as written in Article 3(1) and protecting the rights of the Malays as written in Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.
I just wonder why the Malays of G25 are so disturbed by people fighting for Islam and the rights of the Malays?
And why is G25 quiet when liberal NGOs like COMANGO questioned, humiliated and challenged Islam, the Malays rights and our Rulers?
Does G25 think that it is constitutional when people like Lim Kit Siang, Eric Paulsen and Tony Pua humiliate and slender Islam, the Friday Sermon and JAKIM?
What about some illegal coalition of NGOs such as BERSIH who went against the law by organising illegal street demonstrations, with the hope to topple a democratically elected government?
G25 also attacked Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom for doing his job as the minister in charge of the Islamic affairs:
“…we are particularly concerned with the statement issued by Minister Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, in response to the recent Court of Appeal judgement on the right of transgendered women to dress according to their identity.”
Calling the Sedition Act as a tool to silence the voices with a contrary opinion shows that one does not understand the Sedition Act.
According to Tan Sri Aziz Abdul Rahman, (please refer to this article) the Sedition Act or Akta Hasutan was written after the government identified four serious issues as one of the major causes of the serious 1969 racial riot:
- Article 153 of the Federal Constitution: Special Rights For The Malays
- Article 152 of the Federal Constitution: Malay As The National Language
- Part III: of the Citizenship Rights
- Article 181 of the Federal Constitution: Rights, Status, Sovereignty Of The Rulers
I just do not understand why G25 members want the four sensitive issues to be questioned when open debates on the four issues could actually “heightened anxieties over national peace and stability.”
The G25 further wrote:
“The Federal Constitution is the supreme law of the land and any law enacted, including Islamic laws, cannot violate the Constitution, in particular the provisions on fundamental liberties, federal-state division of powers and legislative procedures”
How could the Islamic laws violate the Federal Constitution when Islam is the religion of the Federation as stated in Article 3(1) of the the Federal Constitution?
In the ruling of the Court of Appeal’s three-member panel led by Federal Court judge Datuk Seri Mohamed Apandi Ali on the Kalimah Allah case:
 It is my observation that the words “in peace and harmony” in Article 3(1) has a historical background and dimension, to the effect that those words are not without significance. The Article places the religion of Islam at par with the other basic structures of the Constitution, as it is the 3 rd in the order of precedence of the Articles that were within the confines of Part I of the Constitution. It is pertinent to note that the fundamental liberties Articles were grouped together subsequently under Part II of the Constitution.
And in the case of Ramah v Laton, it has been decided that the Islamic laws are the laws of the land, so it does not violate the Federal Constitution.
G25 then wrote:
“It is our fervent belief that for Islam to continue to be relevant and universal in our times, the understanding, codification and implementation of the teachings of our faith must continue to evolve.”
We have to follow the real teaching of Islam. We are the Muslims of Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah from the Shafie school of thought or madhhab, so this is the guideline followed by our Islamic authorities.
The true teaching of Islam is always relevant, therefore it must never be evolved or liberalised by anybody.
The title of the above article by The Malaysian Insider (TMI) really attract my attention.
TMI started the article by writing that:
“Some 49 activist groups today demanded the resignation of Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob who had gone on a racist rant against Chinese businesses, saying it was an irresponsible move on the part of the minister to play on racial sentiments.” – TMI
Which NGOs are the 49 activist groups that demanded the resignation of Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob?
So I searched for the names of the NGOs and I found the full list in Malaysia Today.
When I read the list, I found that many of the NGOs are very familiar; so I did more research …
First I put the list side by side with the full list of NGOs that part of Bersih :
So most of them are part of Bersih.
Then I also put the list side by side with the list of NGOs which are part of COMANGO and this is what I found:
So, that is why the names of the NGOs are very familiar to me and they are highlighted by TMI!
These same NGOs are the members of Bersih, COMANGO, NegaraKu and some of them like SUARAM and Sisters In Islam or its real name, SIS Forum are not legal NGOs because they are not registered under ROS.
It is very funny when some illegal NGOs are pressing for a legal minister’s resignation.
No wonder those NGOs want Ismail Sabri to resign, after all those NGOs are the opposition parties supporters and will only look for ways to oppose the government.
To be fair, TMI should change the title of the article to, “The pro-opposition activists are pressing for Ismail Sabri’s resignation” or “Bersih and COMANGO activists are pressing for Ismail Sabri’s resignation.”
They are not only pressing for Ismail Sabri to resign but they also want to change the government.
