Bekas tentera! Buktikan anda semua benar2 berani dan smart...!!

Patut sangatlah kawan saya tu dapat PGB. You rock bro....!!



Jadi kepada rakan2 beliau semua...tok sah larrr dok pusin2 buat statement macam2. PRU13 ni pangkah Pakatan Rakyat. Full stop!!


Ex-serviceman: BN losing military votes

Contrary to the claim by the deputy defence minister, the RMAF Veterans Association president says the more controversies that crop up concerning military procurement, the worse it is for BN.

PETALING JAYA: It is Barisan Nasional and not the opposition which is witnessing a decline in support from those serving the military, said the Royal Malaysian Air Force Veterans Association.

Its president Shahrin Osman said the government’s silence over the controversies surrounding military procurement could result in an electoral backlash. “The more the opposition tells these stories, the more army men and ex-army men will vote for the opposition,” said the former flight sergeant.

“The government should counter these claims by proving to the public what they are doing is right. But the problem is there is no approach from the government at all to address this,” he told FMT.

He was responding to Deputy Defence Minister Abdul Latiff Ahmad who told Parliament yesterday that politicising the issue of military procurement would hurt the feelings of servicemen and result in them supporting BN.

Shahrin also said that most of the ex-armed forces personnel do not trust the mainstream media, especially the Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia.

“I just spoke to some of them, and they are saying they don’t read Utusan now. It only carries ‘sweet stories’ (about the government),” he said.

Opposition blows things up

On the same note, Shahrin also pointed out that the opposition had a tendency for blowing things out of proportion.

“Not all their allegations are totally false but the opposition tends to exaggerate. If the story is 10% real, usually they’ll add another 30% of fiction.

“But it is not wrong for them to raise questions. When we were in the armed forces, we knew the prices and we knew the prices become higher when it comes to buying,” he said.

Shahrin said the government should go down to the ground to explain to the people the truth.

“This is what my association is doing. We organise programmes asking ministers to clarify their actions and what benefit it does for the people,” he added.

Shahrin said that the government’s treatment of retired armed forces personnel was also not helping the situation.

“Many things are not fulfilled. Many of us feel cheated by the government. The pensions are also too little for these men, who find it hard to adapt to civilian life and normal jobs,” he said.

Vote an individual right

Commenting on the same issue, Malaysia ex-Army Association (PBTM) president Muhammad Abdul Ghani said that a vote was an individual right.

“I believe that a vote is a personal right. Military men should think properly on whether an issue is true or not, differentiate between lies and truth. If it is just baseless allegations, we should not take them into account,” he said.

“I’m sure that many of the ex-servicemen are smart enough to evaluate. The more they mention about these issues, the better,” he said.

However, Sarawak Veteran Armed Forces Association president Thomas Ling said that he fully supported the deputy minister on this matter.

“We cannot accept politicians, especially those from the opposition, simply releasing statements to accuse our people of misconduct. I believe all ex-servicemen are loyal to our leaders under the prime minister who leads us,” he added.

In recent years, Pakatan Rakyat had questioned the government’s procurement of defence equipment.

These included salvos against the Scorpene submarines, RM9 billion for six Littoral Combat Ships (LCS), an estimated RM2 billion for a Mindef IT project, RM7.55 billion for armoured carriers and other matters.

Anwar mahu debat Najib &RPK sekali gus 

Hazlan Zakaria
1:16PM Mac 22, 2012

 Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibraim hari ini berkata, beliau bersetuju untuk berdebat dengan penulis blog Raja Petra Kamaruddin dan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Katanya, pengasas Wikileaks - laman pembocor maklumat - Julian Assange bersetuju menganjurkannya dan beliau sudah pun memberikan jawapan "ya".

Bercakap dalam sidang media di lobi parlimen, Anwar berkata, Assange sebelum ini menghubunginya melalui pesanan di Twitter.


Raja Petra bagaimanapun mencelah dan akhirnya Assenge bersetuju dengan perdebatan tiga penjuru. Najib dan Raja Petra setakat ini belum mengesahkan menerima cadangan terbaru itu.

Muhyiddin Cabar Azmin Untuk Berdebat....!!

Memandangkan Muhyiddin kata Anwar Ibrahim penakut, baiklah Muhyiddin yang berani itu berdebat dengan Azmin Ali. ....Hehe!!

Di bawah ini ialah Kenyataan Ketua Staf Pejabat DSAI.
Pertamanya kami mahu menjelaskan bahawa permohonan yang diajukan oleh Wikileaks kepada Pejabat Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim adalah satu wawancara antara Julian Assange dengan Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Kemudiannya barulah pihak kami diberitahu Raja Petra mahu menumpang dalam wawancara tersebut. Makanya Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim menegaskan bahawa beliau hanya menyatakan persetujuan untuk permintaan yang asal iaitu wawancara antara beliau dengan Julian Assange. Oleh itu Quick Roll Productions, pihak produksi yang terlibat dengan wawancara ini telah membuat keputusan editorial untuk meneruskan format wawancara antara Julian Assange dengan Anwar Ibrahim tanpa melibatkan penumpang lainnya. Keputusan editorial tersebut semata-mata dibuat oleh Quick Roll Productions dan tidak dipaksakan oleh Pejabat Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim ke atas mereka.

Keduanya, kami merasa terpanggil apabila Dato’ Seri Najib Razak menggunakan isu ini sebagai pelantar untuk mentohmah Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim kononnya takut berdebat dengan Raja Petra. Kami kesal kerana Dato’ Seri Najib Razak bercakap tidak berdasarkan fakta yang sebenar kerana tidak timbul soal debat sedangkan yang dipersetujui antara Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim dengan Julian Assange adalah wawancara satu sama satu. Akan tetapi oleh kerana YAB Perdana Menteri beriya-iya bercakap soal debat, kami berpendirian adalah sangat baik untuk rakyat dan negara ini sekiranya Dato’ Seri Najib Razak bersetuju untuk berdebat dengan YB Ketua Pembangkang, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Perdebatan antara YB Ketua Pembangkang dengan YAB Perdana Menteri berkaitan isu nasional pastinya memberi manfaat yang banyak kepada rakyat dan negara kiia. Justeru keengganan Dato’ Seri Najib Razak untuk berdebat dengan Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim memunculkan tanda tanya di kalangan rakyat terbanyak, sama ada YAB Perdana Menteri takut ataupun tidak punya komitmen untuk menyuburkan amalan Demokrasi di negara ini.

Football legend Diego Maradona said that he greatly respects the Palestinians. (File photo)
Football legend Diego Maradona said that he is “the biggest fan and supporter of the Palestinian people” in one of his rare comments on a Middle East issue. 
“This is my stand and I will never give it up. I don’t care if anyone gets angry,” Maradona told DPA in Dubai on Monday. He added that he greatly respects the Palestinians, “sympathizes with them and thinks that they need everyone’s support.”
In August, the Argentine star accepted the Palestinian black-and-white scarf from a fan. He hugged the fan and thanked him, before flashing a victory sign and telling the camera “Viva Palestina.”

Maradona said that he regards the Palestinian people in the same way as he regards his two-year-old grandson “Benjamin” who is in continual need of support.

“I have promised members of the Palestinian national team to visit Palestine. I support the case of the Palestinian people because I grew up fully aware of struggle and confrontation of injustice. Palestine is a struggling country,” he said.

Roadshow JATI ke Stadium Wembley...

Kahkahkah.....

Hari tu kata kat Kelantan yang hadir 20,000...la ni tinggal 8, 000 pulak. Entahlah...

Bekas Pesuruhjaya PAS Datuk Hasan Ali hari ini mendakwa pemecatannya sebagai anggota PAS akan menjadi sebahagian daripada faktor yang menyebabkan kekalahan parti itu pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.

hasan ali, jati president pc at his house, klKatanya, faktor pemecatannya masih relevan dan akan menyebabkan "kekalahan teruk" PAS di samping pendirian Pakatan Rakyat terhadap isu-isu lain seperti Palestin-Israel dan masalah Kristianisasi.

"Dan isu-isu lain, termasuk pemecatan Hasan Ali masih relevan dan saya nampak ribuan tanya saya, yang disampaikan dengan begitu baik," katanya.

Isu-isu lain, kata bekas exco agama kerajaan negeri Selangor itu, berkaitan kenyataan seorang anggota jawatankuasa pusat PAS tentang kesediaan parti itu menerima bukan Islam sebagai pemimpin parti.

Bercakap dalam sidang media di rumahnya dekat Kuala Lumpur hari ini, Hasan yang secara tidak langsung menkwa dirinya mempunyai sokongan akar umbi yang kukuh berkata program jelajahnya mendapat sambutan baik apabila ribuan yang hadir.

NONEDi Kota Baru semalam, tambahnya, ceramah Jalur Tiga (JATI) yang kini dipimpinya mencatat kehadiran hampir 8,000 orang.

Manakala di Pendang pula, kata Hasan, tiga hari sebelum itu, kira-kira 15,000 orang hadir.

"Menurut orang tempatan, tak pernah sambutan sebegiti baik program PAS atau BN di kawasan itu," katanya lagi.

Pundekization: Mahathir's Legacy....


Malaysia will be bankrupt because… — Ali Kadir

March 02, 2012
MARCH 2 — For two decades, we listened to Dr Mahathir Mohamad because he was the prime minister and he gave his version of everything, from privatisation to NEP and crony capitalism.
But now we know better. Now we see the all the excesses seeping out and the double talk. His so-called economic policies depended on oil revenue, not any superb thinking.
The cheap labour model he gave us worked for a while but now Malaysia is stuck in the low income trap. His government officials accuse Malaysians of being dependent on subsidies but what they don’t tell us is that MITI and MIDA can’t sell the country as an investment destination without giving 10- to 15-year tax holidays, subsidised gas and cheap foreign labour.
This is Dr Mahathir’s legacy so we should be cynical when he warns that minimum wage may lead Malaysia to bankruptcy.
So what’s his option, import more Indonesians and Bangladeshis?
I dare say these are the things that will lead us to bankruptcy, and not minimum wage:
1) The culture of allowing those responsible for billions in losses to get away without having to pay any price for their wrongdoing or excesses.
The Lebanese chap behind the massive failure that is InventQjaya is enjoying his life while the government picked up RM1.2 billion tab; Tajudin Ramli does not have to pay RM800 billion (including interest) to Danaharta after a confidential settlement brokered by government.
2) GLCs losing tons of money despite government protection and bailouts. MAS just announced RM2.5 billion in losses and Dr Mahathir’s favourite toy, Proton, is in the red. Again.
3) The strange award of contracts such as the National Feedlot Corporation (RM250 million), the RM2.2 billion Kinrara Damansara Exchange (to an Umno lawyer and former chief justice) and the multibillion ringgit West Coast Highway (allegedly to a friend of Najib’s).
4) The bloated civil service. Malaysia has a workforce of 12 million and 1.2 million are civil servants, the highest proportion in the region. Every time the civil service is given a bonus, it costs the government some RM8 billion.
5) Corruption by politicians and their nominees.
6) Funds and projects approved for vote-buying in the run-up to elections.
Minimum wage will increase the cost of doing business but the paltry increase will not bankrupt Malaysia.
Business as usual, Umno-style, is already bankrupting Malaysia.
* Ali Kadir reads The Malaysian Insider.

Politician and former transport deputy minister says he has had enough of politics

Friday, March 02, 2012 - 16:02
6-march2
TENGKU AZLAN: Parliament is a place for opposing policies and not for parties to oppose each other for the sake of opposing — Pic: ARIF KARTONOo


STRAIGHT-SHOOTING Jerantut MP Tan Sri Tengku Azlan Sultan Abu Bakar tells Terence Fernandez and Azril Annuar why he’s dropping out of politics and why Umno has got a tough road ahead of it.

MM: Why have our parliamentary proceedings not reached a level of maturity?

TA: People have a wrong concept about what Parliament is all about. Parliament is not a political platform; it is a place for nation building.

In Parliament, although you have government and opposition backbenchers, you are not opposing party to party. You are opposing policies that you think the government is not being fair about. Parliament is a workshop for politicians; it is not a place to belittle each other.

Do you feel the Opposition that is also elected by the rakyat, is not given its due recognition?

Why would Parliament pay the Opposition? Because they are playing a role! And the opposition leader has a function. He is playing a role as if he's a part of government. Of course he's not the prime minister but he's a watchdog.

In Parliament we see that one opposes for the sake of opposing.

That's wrong. But there have been certain policies or laws passed in Parliament that the Opposition supported. Like in those days, the late Tun Abdul Razak would have tea with (Dr) Tan Chee Koon, the Opposition Leader. That kind of atmosphere should be brought back. That shows our maturity. People should understand that Parliament is a place where everyone cracks his or her head on how to pass good laws which are fair to everyone and keep the institution at a very high standard.

There has been a lot of scrutiny on the Constitution with suggestions to address certain provisions that have a bearing on ethnic issues.

The Constitution that was passed during Merdeka is not only for the Malays, it's for everyone. That's why we got our independence when the British agreed to what had been put aside for the Malays, Indians and Chinese. This 1Malaysia is nothing new. We've always been 1Malaysia. If you were in London and I were to ask you, you never say I'm a Malay or an Indian from Malaysia. You just say I'm a Malaysian.

After Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi took over, he allowed discussions on sensitive issues and allowed the press to be more liberal in reporting. Is this why we seem to have a lot of debates on race and religion?

It could have been, but because of his personality, some people took advantage of him for being a nice guy. Even our present PM has got some vision but in many areas he’s also weak. But he has worked his way up there and I would say Datuk Seri Najib Razak has got his vision and I believe he is gaining popularity. But not BN. If you ask me, today BN is not popular.

But if Najib is gaining popularity, doesn’t the party also gain popularity as a domino effect?

I think the most important is for the team to understand how he wants the country to go forward. He has to make them understand. And he’s got to make them work towards it like what he and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin are doing. The rest must follow up.

You mentioned PM has his strengths and weaknesses. What are the things he can do better?

He should be looking more towards the rural folk because whether we like it or not, a bulk of our voters and supporters are in rural areas. Not just Sabah and Sarawak, there are a lot of unfortunate people in Kedah and East Coast and PM needs to look more into that area.

When we talk of basic infrastructure, there are still many areas that are not well developed, including my own area. He should be looking into that too.

There’s no doubt that he’s looking to transform our people to accept more challenges, especially the young generation who are more sophisticated. But what about the rural folk? Their mentality and mindset need to be changed also, especially the Malays. The Malays in the kampung are still quite far behind. They believe the government should give them everything which is not right because no government in the world can give you everything.

The NEP and affirmative policies are an election topic for the Opposition in rural areas. They often say: 'What NEP are you talking about? Look at you, are you beneficiaries of the NEP? NEP is meant for Umno and they have to continue having a large number of marginalised Malays to ensure NEP continues into perpetuity'.

Everything in Malaysia today is being politicised. If you talk about Kelantan and Terengganu if there were no politics, they would have continued to get support from the federal government but because it’s been in the Opposition, there is some politics being played there.

When Terengganu was under PAS, the federal government changed the oil royalty into wang ehsan. But that's not right because it was agreed earlier by everybody. This is the kind of thing that isn’t good for us. We tend to politicise everything. It’s no good for the country.

It’s a sign of immaturity and insecurity.

In Jerantut as I’ve said many times. If you want me, I’m around, if you don’t want me, I’m out. Don’t you think it’s very simple politics?

What do you think makes a winnable candidate? If you look at the general description, it is someone who appeals to everyone in the constituency and is clean. But it also could be someone who is tainted nationally but is a darling in the constituency.

Who decides who is a winnable candidate? The rakyat! Not us! So, what the party should do is get some feelers and see if that person is still wanted or not. The party may think a person is a winnable candidate. But the rakyat might not. But to me, if you do your work and take care of your constituency, there’s a very good chance you can win.

I give one good example, people like (Gua Musang MP) Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. Everybody knows whatever banner, platform he stands on he can win. So it’s the people. In Jerantut today, I’m going to retire after three terms. I want to give way to a younger person. I want to do some other things.

But from what we gather, you’re a winnable candidate.

It’s not for me to say, it’s the rakyat of Jerantut. But I believe there is a chance that I may still win if I stand but I’ve made up my mind I don’t want to get involved anymore, I want to do some other things. I am trying to get myself involved with the Blind Association; helping less fortunate people. It’s not just through politics you can help the rakyat. There are so many other ways. I still believe that it’s not easy picking winnable candidates, especially at this time.

You said BN is not as popular.

I find that today the BN leadership tends to look at what has been given and you should be grateful. It’s the wrong way. We should be looking at our people and where we have gone wrong. It is for the rakyat to judge whether we’ve taken measures to correct ourselves. I notice we tend to blame everyone else but ourselves.

Also, I think we are very consistent in being inconsistent.

Tun Mahathir, right or wrong, was very firm and he went through with decisions with a firm stand. Here, we keep on changing. When you keep on changing that means you have not done a proper study before making a decision and that makes you look weak.

If you’re the government and you say your interest is for the people, then when you decide on something, you go ahead. If it is wrong, you’ll face it in the next election. Otherwise you can’t govern a country when you keep changing things.

From what we hear, there is a lot of resistance to the changes the prime minister wants to bring.

If I had a cabinet and my cabinet is pushing me up the wall, I would sack the cabinet because I’m the one who appointed them anyway. If you don’t go with me, then you’re out.

Najib doesn’t have 2/3 majority or the mandate from his own party. Talking about the next election, one school of thought is we’ve given them 58 years already, so what is another five? Why don’t we give Najib his mandate so he can be a strong leader and will be able to make the reforms he wants to?

And if the rakyat delivers the 2/3, we hope he won’t squander the mandate given to him like Pak Lah did. Would that be a good advice for the voters? Because they are angry and unsure right now.

I’m sure the last three years Najib has been PM, the rakyat would have been able to assess where he is going. What you’re saying is about giving Najib a chance. Then again, Najib also must see what he has done for the last three years. Voters also want to see what he has done. If they feel that voters can accept the kind of policies and vision that you have, you should not worry. Tomorrow you can call for general election if you’re confident.

What about those who oppose him and derail his efforts? It depends on you as a man on how you handle them. I think the prime minister’s post is the most powerful in the country.

What are a few monkeys anyway? It’s for you to control. You must know who you put there and who can do what! That’s the beauty of the late Tun Razak, he knew he can handpick people to do which job. Like he picked Tengku Razaleigh to handle Petronas. That is the wisdom of a leader. Tun Mahathir has wisdom. That old man is a brave leader and I have a lot of respect for Tun Mahathir.

Do you agree that a lot of the problems today like racial issues, perceived weak government and judiciary, economic disparity, corruption — all go back to Mahathir’s administration?

I think you can’t blame Mahathir totally. His people back then and the system in Umno invite corruption. And the pay scale today, that invites corruption. I think the government servants, the MPs, the ministers are all underpaid as compared to our neighbours. So you pay peanuts you get monkeys lah.

I think it’s only fair that people who are doing a very important job should be paid well. If we can pay CEOS of GLCs well, why can’t we pay our ministers, MPs and government servants?

Our PM should be paid well — he’s only getting RM40,000 a month. He should be getting RM200,000 to RM300,000 a month. He’s the CEO of a country. That one the rakyat has got to understand. As an MP, my pay is RM5,900. That is ridiculous! People are going out of the country because they get better pay.

How is Pahang gearing up for the polls?

I think Pahang is still okay, politically. But obviously we may lose a few state seats and if we’re not careful maybe one or two parliament seats.

What are the seats BN is focusing on?

I’ll talk about my own constituency. We have an additional 9,000 new voters and 500-over are Chinese, the rest are Malays which will be split with PAS. And the composition of this 9,000, say 40 per cent to 50 per cent are young people then we would be facing quite a tough election in Jerantut and (it) can go either way. Because PAS has a solid vote of 11,000 there, we need help from the Indian community.

The government needs to look a bit more seriously at places like Jerantut where the infrastructure is still much needed and if we were to lose the seat, it’s not because of anything but because we haven’t done enough for the people of Jerantut, especially the deep rural folk who have always been our good supporters.

The impression is that BN knows it has lost its urban voters. So the focus is on rural areas. But from what you’re telling us, even the rural votes are shaky.

I’m worried about Jerantut. That’s why I don’t want to talk about other people’s areas. Even today, even if I were to stand again in Jerantut, I would have to work harder and I would be very worried there’s a good chance that I would lose.

Why the reluctance to provide Jerantut with the said infrastructure?

Maybe they feel that Jerantut isn’t a priority. Maybe they prioritise other parts of Malaysia.

That’s something about BN, around elections they go gung-ho about this project and that project. They manufacture billboards saying: Satu lagi projek Barisan Nasional.

I think you should put this in the Guinness World Book of Records on the amount of billboards in the country and the photographs of leaders put up along roadsides.

It’s become an enterprise.

The problem in Malaysia is that to them money is everything. That is destroying the country. There is no self-respect, integrity or dignity. You have the money, you can more or less do anything. We are really going the wrong way. This is something I always talk to the young, money isn’t everything. In fact too much money can destroy you.

So what should the Umno leadership do to correct the perception that joining the party is akin to a skim cepat kaya?

We should reduce the membership of Umno. I think the maximum number should be about one million or half a million but get quality members. And then Umno should be funded properly from whatever way. Each division should be given a certain amount of funds and at end of the year, get an independent auditor to audit all division accounts.

Umno members now? What about them?

They can be ordinary supporters. At division level, each division should have 1,000 to 2,000 members. Say there are 1,000 members in Jerantut, they decide who the division chief and committee members are.

'Don’t sabotage' seems to be the common plea at every Umno meeting.

It’s how each leader’s division takes care of its members. They do not put party first, but self first. They know if they see that guy is against him, they will find a way to get rid of him. I fought in the last bahagian election, the Adun Pulau Tawau was my rival. After the election, I won by 43 or 44 votes and I called all of them back together. I picked his most trusted guy as my secretary. If every division chief thinks that way, Umno will be okay. Because I don’t make my living from Umno. You know, I rejected the deputy foreign minister’s post.

Are you frustrated with the current Umno, is that why you don’t want to contest?

I am frustrated with the whole country, not just Umno.

Penjelasan polemik wacana Sinar Harian

Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad,01 Mac 2012

Wacana “Mengapa Undi Melayu Pecah” anjuran Sinar Harian (SH) dari Kumpulan Karangkraf berlangsung pada 28 hb Februari lalu. Rata-ratanya ia ditanggapi sebagai hangat, tegang tetapi lancar dan terkawal. Mereka yang gagal untuk hadir dalam dewan menonton melalui internet @SinarOnline dan @Mobtv.my.  Liputannya dibuat dalam dua keluaran SH dan secara verbatim esok mengikut maklumat pihak pengurusan SH.

Dalam hampir 3 jam perbahasan bersekali dengan sidang akhbarnya yang menghuraikan pelbagai isu di sekitar tajuk wacana, amat malang sekali, ada pihak yang memanipulasi laporan wacana ini dengan sengaja mengenengah dan kini ‘memporakperandakan’ minda rakyat yang tampaknya bermotifkan politik.

Paling mutakhir seorang mantan PM juga tumpang semangkuk sekaligus dengan  lebih jelas membuktikan bagaimana pihak media yang andainya tidak cermat atau juga punyai agenda tertentu akan terpalit untuk  memenangkan sesuatu tumpuan umum dalam memobilisasi pandangan awam (public opinion). Lebih malang lagi bila saya kesani ada segelintir kecil pihak PAS sendiri yang terpengaroh meminta saya tarik balik kenyataan saya. Kenyataan apa, kalau boleh saya tanya.

Nyata bahawa Wacana ‘Mengapa Undi Melayu Pecah’ yang saya kira sihat dan informatif, kini telah diheret pihak tertentu secara sengaja atau tidak bagi menonjolkan isu ‘PAS bersedia di pimpin bukan-Islam’. Bukan tajuk wacana samasekali, tetapi itulah nasib panelis, yang mesti menjadi peringatan yang  bakal bersetuju menjadi panelis. Satu perkara atau isu, yang awalnya ditanggapi isu sampingan atau ‘side-dish’ menjadi habuan utama atau ‘main meal’ bagi lawan politik atau pihak tertentu.

Saya diingatkan supaya tulis penjelasan ini ringkas tetapi jelas. Biar orang kampong semua boleh faham. Saya cuba insyaAllah. Untuk tujuann tersebut saya mendengar rakaman verbatim dalam @Mobtv.my beberapa kali dan telah pun meminta pegawai saya menyalinnya. Justeru  yang tidak hadir dan tidak dengar perbahasan 3 jam itu tetapi mahu membuat kenyataan rasmi seperti Tun termasuk ramai dalam media sosial lain, tolong beri perhatian yang serius.

Soalan dari Moderator Dr Maszlee adalah ‘Apakah PAS bersedia untuk melantik Timbalan Presiden dari kalangan bukan-Islam seperti Ikhwan Muslimin baru-baru ini’..tekuni jawaban saya..

Perkara seperti ini bukan perkara-perkara prinsip yang tetap. Dalam (Syariat) Islam ada 2 perkara-kategori (hukum). Satu, perkara2 ‘ Tetap’ yang tidak boleh ubah dikatakan ‘Al-Thawabit’.  (Tetapi) Ini perkara2 dalam ruang lingkup Ijtihad dan yang dikatakan sebagai ‘Al-Mutaghiyyaraat’ . 2 perkara ini kita mesti bezakan atas apa susun atur politik itu semua perkara-perkara yang boleh berubah…..

Pada perkara yang boleh berubah kita ubah pada waktu dan tuntutannya. Ini perkara ………. PAS berani berubah! Ada perkara yg tetap tapi ada perkara yang tertakluk kpd perubahan…….. Jadi kita boleh bersedia untuk menerima perubahan & pindaan seperti itu.

Pada persoalan: Jangka masa? Bila? Jawab saya: Ha! Jangka waktu itu segalanya tertakluk kepada needs atau keperluan. Ya! Terima kasih.

Ketika saya di asak soalan tambahan: “ keadaan sekarang needs tu dah..?”

Jawab saya : Mungkin belum ada needsnya (keperluannya) tapi kalau dah diutarakan kita akan bincang dan di Muktamar kita putuskan bersama..

Pada soalan:  “Belum dibawa?”

Jawapan saya: “Belum lagi”… Ini Dr Mazlee pertama kali dengar ini. Tapi kalau perkara itu dah menekan, sebab apa… Sebab itu mengikut katanya peredaran…peredaran zaman ya… dan Islam itu mampu menangani peredaran zaman. Itu yang dimaksudkan… Its able to withstand the challenges of time dan realities. Ini perkara2 yg tentunya mendatang kita akan hadapi pada waktunya dan kemaslahatan kepentingannya.

Nah itulah jawapan saya yang telah mencetuskan kontroversi .

Persoalan besar yang ramai menunggu penjelasan ialah mengapa saya berpendirian sedemikian. Ini hujjah saya secara ringkasan sahaja bersandarkan hujjah yang dikemukakan oleh Imam Al-Mawardi dalam Kitabnya Al-Ahkam Al-Sultaniyyah (Beirut).

Al-Mawardi membezakan jawatan dalam kerajaan (dan ada Ulama yang qiyaskan dalam parti-jamaah Islam)..kedudukan nombor satu yang disebutkan sebagai ‘Wazir Tafwidh’ tidak boleh diberikan kepada bukan-Islam tetapi pada kedudukan ‘Wazir Tanfidz’ (Menteri-menteri Kabinet yang lain atau jawatan lain dalam organisasi), maka ianya boleh sahaja dilantik dan diserah kepada orang bukan-Islam.

(Wa yajuzu an yakunu hadhal wazir min ahlil dhimmah wa in lam yajuz an yakunu wazir al-tafwidh min hum)…Al-Ahkam Al-Sultaniyyah

Bila saya menjawab dengan positif pada soalan moderator saya cukup jelas landasan dan sandaran saya. Kedudukan nombor satu Presiden atau Perdana Menteri adalah bersamaan dengan kedudukan ‘Wilayatul Tafwidh’ tetapi pimpinan yang lain Timbalan2 bahkan Naib2nnya juga boleh sahaja di banyakkan jumlahnya dan disusun-atur mengikut kepentingan fasa (fatrah) perjuangan. Ini perkara Ijtihadiyyah dan jelas tertakluk kepada ‘penilaian berterusan’.

Di sini kita tidak perlu jumud dan beku kerana saya bercakap dengan rangka masa depan. Dulu kita tidak ada Dewan Himpunan Penyokong PAS (DHPP) tetapi kini sudah ada. Saya boleh bayangkan satu hari nanti kalau ia membesar sehingga akan berlaku pindaan perlembagaan PAS yang mencadangkan supaya Ketua Dewan dijadikan salah seorang Naib Presiden, satu unjuran yang amat menasabah. Mungkin makan satu atau dua dekad lagi, Wa AlLahu’Alam.

Saya cukup jelas dengan kedudukan Majlis Syura Ulama dan Muktamar yang sentiasa menjaga landasan parti supaya tidak tergelincir. Tetapi parti mempunyai ruang yang cukup luas dalam pentadbiran, organisasi dan pendekatan (strategi) perjuangan, yang semestinya sentiasa mengalami ‘pembaharuan’ dan ‘renewal’ (tajdid) namun dibuat melalui saluran dan kaedahnya.

Pokoknya saya tidak kira wajar mengelak berulang situasi di mana kita tolak dan kita sempitkan apa yang sebenarnya luas dan boleh sahaja dilakukan, tetapi atas dakwaaan menjaga ‘jatidiri’ atau ‘keaslian’, ada yang kurang senang bekerjasama dengan kelompok dan parti yang tidak berteraskan Islam. Namun apabila PAS mahu wujudkan ‘Tahaaluf’ atau ‘Muafakat Politik’ ahli dan umum, tampak di kacamata golongan ini bahawa kita semacam berbolak-balik.Sebenarnya tidak demikian, sebab itu penting membuat penjelasan awal dan jangan takut menyatakan kebenaran secara berani.  Ini sebab kita tidak terangkan bahawa ia boleh sahaja berubah atas tuntutan maslahah fasa perjuangan dalam rangka Ijtihad parti oleh kepimpinan tertinggi dan Majlis Syura Ulama.

Saya tidak hairan Tun Mahathir memutarbelitkan kenyataan saya secara cukup tidak sopan ketika mencadangkan YB Lim Kit Siang supaya menjadi Presiden PAS, sekiranya Al-Quran pun Tun boleh putar-belit dengan mengatakan bahawa dalam Al-Quran pun tidak ada Hukum Hudud dan Hukum Hudud tidak adil. (Konvensyen Kebangsaan Politik dan Patriotisme, K2P, 26 Feb, 2012, di UNIMAS)

Saya cadangkan Tun tumpukan menjelaskan dakwaan bahawa dalam era pemerintahannya sebnyak USD100 (RM330bilion) hangus kerana ketirisan dan rasuah dalam pengurusan kewangan yang tempang.

Rahsia Ghani Patail Yang Bukan Rahsia.....


Ex-CCID chief blasts Gani for 'fixing' him
Former Commercial Crimes Investigation Department chief Ramli Yusuff described in detail yesterday how he and his men were fixed up by the attorney-general of Malaysia since 2007, and how they were vindicated by the courts in being acquitted of the charges.

He also described how the AG, Abdul Gani Patail, used the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) against him and his men.

ramli yusuff asset declare case 120310 04Celebrating his birthday again on a leap year yesterday, Ramli said in a speech that it all began when his officers were entrusted with taking action against a syndicate member who was sent to Jeli, in Kelantan to serve restricted residence (RR) order.

The man had been accused of being involved in organised crime, including loan sharking, running an illegal lottery syndicate, prostitution and drug pushing in Johor.

"This information was given by the then deputy home minister (Johari Baharom), and the matter was considered a ‘top secret' and highly confidential case. Later, I was told to report to him directly after the file was completed.

"Accordingly, I instructed my officers to put up the case against the syndicate member, which was subsequently submitted to the deputy minister for committal under the RR order. However, upon the advice of the AG, the syndicate member was subsequently released, unconditionally," Ramli said.

"Instead, my officers were charged with taking down false and fabricated statements that implicated the then inspector-general of police (Musa Hassan).

"That's when AG Gani Patail called the original case file, which was classified as highly confidential, and passed it to the MACC to harass the witnesses," Ramli said.
Pay tribute to fearless officers

Ramli said this in his speech on his 15th” birthday celebration, held at the Sime Darby Convention Centre last night.

It was attended by many well-wishers, among them former Sabah chief minister Chong Kah Kiat, deputy inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar, former Home Ministry secretary-general Aseh Che Mat and other senior police officers.

Ramli said he was thankful that the people who served under him were acquitted and discharged without their defence being called.

“There was no basis whatsoever for the prosecution to appeal. All of them have been reinstated.

“Tonight, I pay tribute to these fearless officers. All of them have been reinstated and promoted. To IGP Ismail Omar, I say thank you for recognising that they have been victimised and for giving them back their dignity and honour. I am glad that the (police) force has not forsaken them.”

Ramli noted that Khalid had also investigated the same syndicate member and that the officers involved in that investigation were transferred out, including Khalid.

He  noted these officers were acquitted and discharged without their defence being called and were also reinstated.

His lawyer also harassed

Ramli said a month before he was charged, his lawyer and one time university mate, Rosli Dahlan,was arrested in “a most humiliating manner” by the MACC and held overnight, and charged a day before Hari Raya that same year.

ramli yusuff police aca trial 011107 rosli dahlan“They falsely accused Rosli (right) of failure to declare his assets. Their objective was to implicate him for representing me, after they found that all the sensational stories spread by them through the mainstream media about me being the RM27 million cop were nothing but blatant lies.”

The former top cop said the MACC was unhappy with Rosli because he helped us (Ramli and Johari) to prepare affidavits that were supposed to be prepared by a senior federal counsel with the Home Ministry.

“The AG (Gani) was angry with Rosli for pointing out that the refusal by the Attorney-General's Chambers to prepare these affidavits (to challenge the release of the syndicate member) amounted to an abdication of his constitutional duties under Article 145(3) of the Federal Constitution.

“Because they were out to get me, and get me good, they pursued all avenues within their powers, regardless of the consequences on innocent parties like Rosli. This unconscionable conduct alarmed me as a law enforcment officer,” Ramli said.

Having served the police force with great pride for 38 years, he said, all that came to an abrupt halt on Nov 1, 2007, when, three months shy of his retirement, he was charged in court.

“On that fateful day, life was no longer as I knew it. Overnight, my career was destroyed, my reputation tarnished and the privileges accorded to me stripped away.
Vindicated, with God's grace

“Like living in a nightmare, I found myself being singled out as a corrupt officer and the full strength of multiple bodies in power at that period of time had their crosshairs on me.

“With God's grace, I have now been vindicated of all the charges because they are nothing more than falsehood. Although there were many efforts made to condemn me in the public eye, I had decided after being a civil servant, the only way to proceed was to prove my innocence...”

Ramli said that though “the powers that be” were determined to use all possible means to see him be convicted, he was not called to make his defence on any of the five charges levelled against him.

“I am well on the way to complete exoneration. As they say, you can’t keep a good man down.  However, as of today, I am patiently awaiting one more appeal by the AG pertaining to a summons case, the most minor of the charges.

“I am, however, sad to point out that my pension and gratuity have been withheld since 2008,  as I am said to be not yet fully cleared of all charges against me. That to me explained why the AG Chambers have kept this appeal suspended to this day.”

He ended his speech by saying that he could not, and would not, allow such abuses to take place again and that he would not sit idly by letting such incidents to be repeated.
