See Video: MALAY Thugs Attack Ceramah Held by ABU-HINDRAF at Jalan Kebun on 21st January 2012

One person SERIOUSLY injured!!!

From Malaysiakini Read here for more

A ceramah organised by Anything But Umno (ABU) was cancelled at the last minute due to a disturbance from a "rowdy" group.

According to Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram) executive director E Nalini (right), the ceramah was disrupted by several youths sporting T-shirts with BN and Umno logos.

"The ceramah was to start about 9pm last night. As we were driving to the hall, there were about six or seven men beating up a boy with sticks," said Nalini.

This was confirmed by ABU coordinator Haris Ibrahim, who added that one young man was taken to the hospital.

"Another group of some 20 people were causing a ruckus opposite the hall, waving rods and riding motorcycles," Nalini told Malaysiakini, adding that they were told the area was an "Umno stronghold".

Co-organised by Hindu Rakyat Action Force (Hindraf), the ceramah was to take place at the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) Hall on Jalan Kebun, before it was called off over safety concerns.

"I understand that the hospital had to do a CT Scan on the youth. He is out of danger but he is certainly traumatised," said Haris, who was to speak at the ceramah.

Apart from Haris, other speakers lined up were PKR's Badrul Hisham Shahrin, PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu and Hindraf national coordinator W Sambulingam.

Haris said the organisers would decide later today on their next course of action.

Nalini said that the rowdy group dispersed after several police patrol cars arrived at the scene.

Malays told to leave

Hindraf adviser N Ganesan said in a statement that the group was making a racket outside the MBSA hall by honking motorcycle horns, and one of the group's leaders even told Malay attendees to leave the ceramah.

"Having succeeded in getting a few of the attendees to leave the hall, the mat rempit then began kicking and pushing over the publicity material and tables placed at the entrance to the hall.

"This made some in the crowd restless, and prompted the mat rempit leader to ask the crowd to 'berambus' (get lost).

N Ganesan, HRP advisor June 4"Things took an ugly turn when a mat rempit then rode his motorcycle right into the seating area, making those there scramble for safety," recounted Ganesan (left).

A scuffle then took place when one of the participants told the motorcycle group leader to leave.

They began shoving one another and it eventually ended in a fight, said Ganesan, adding that the participant was then "knocked senseless, and had to be rushed off to the hospital".

Ganesan also criticised BN and Umno, accusing them of using youths to disrupt the ceramah.

He added that despite the "brazen attempt" to thwart the gathering, Hindraf as well as ABU would continue to host forums and ceramah of such nature.

However, Selangor police chief Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah refuted the allegations that a person was injured.

"NOTHING happened, the residents were unhappy, that's all. NO BN or Umno supporters disturbed them," said Tun Hisan when contacted.

"No police reports were lodged, not even by the victim who was said to be injured," he said.

"Papagomo" aka Wan Muhammad Azri and "Parpukari "aka Mohd Salim Iskandar sued for RM 10 Million for Defamation .

REAL NAME: Wan Muhammad Azri bin Wan Deris
Identity Card No: 830121-03-5019
Date of Birth: 21 January, 1983
Residence: Setapak, Kuala Lumpur

Pro-Umno bloggers Papagomo and Parpukari are facing a looming RM10 million lawsuit each for allegedly defaming businessman Abdul Razak Mohd Noor.

Abdul Razak had through law agency Netto & Co on Jan 3 issued a letter of demand to the duo, on top of a notice of demand published in a major local daily last Saturday.


When contacted, Abdul Razak's lawyer Reuben Netto said his client had resorted to public notices as he had no other avenues to defend himself.

"When we go before the judge, we want to say that we have done everything in our power to identify the bloggers," he said.

The notices names Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris as the owner of the Papagomo blog and Mohamad Salim Iskandar as the owner of the Parpukari blog.

Abdul Razak claims that Papagomo had through a blog posting on Dec 11, 2011 and Parpukari through a blog posting on Dec 4 and Dec 12, 2011 defamed him.

"They have defamed my client by calling him a conman and accusing him of cheating the government, saying that he had collaborated with the opposition and labelling him as being ungrateful to Umno," said Netto.

Justifying the demand of RM10 million in damages, Netto said Abdul Razak holds all telecommunications licences relating to broadband and satellite services in partnership with Telekom Malaysia.

"He is supplying the Malaysian public with broadband services in cooperation with Telekom, he is a fairly big person in terms of the services he renders. But with these defamatory articles, the banks and Telekom are calling up my client and asking what is happening," he said.

Netto said he was informed that Papagomo has met with other bloggers and sought advice on how handle the looming suit, while Parpukari thus far has ignored the legal notices.

Court action expected soon

"If by the end of the week, they do not show any sincerity or overtures in writing, then it will force our hand to file an action in court," he said.

Aside from damages, according to the letter sent on Jan 3, Abdul Razak is demanding for the duo to withdraw their allegations from their blogs as well as, at their own expense, request similar withdrawals from sites that have circulated the claims.

He is also seeking for the two to publish an unqualified apology on their blogs and to seek similar publication on sites which have circulated their allegations.

The duo will also be required to put in writing a guarantee to not publish similar allegations or imputations against Abdul Razak in future.

If the bloggers do not respond, Netto added, a suit will be filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court as early as Friday and the latest by early next week.

Papagomo has in the past made several controversial claims, including alleging that Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's son had outraged the modesty of his schoolmate, a claim which has been proven untrue. READ HERE FOR MORE

Several police reports have been lodged against the blogger before, but this looming suit appears to be the FIRST major legal action against him and Parpukari.

NOT GUILTY!! Judge Zabidin ACQUITS Anwar Ibrahim of Sodomy Charges

Dato' Mohamad Zabidin Bin Mohd Diah,DSDK, SMP, SDK
High Court Judge Kuala Lumpur (Criminal 5)
(Appointed High Court Judge on 28 July 2006)


"...The court does not exclude the possibility the (DNA) samples were compromised.

Therefore the accused is ACQUITTED...."

-High Court Judge Dato' Mohamad Zabidin Bin Mohd Diah
Read here for more and HERE and HERE

The High Court today acquitted Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of a charge of sodomising his former male aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Judge Mohd Zabidin Mohd Diah ruled that the prosecution had NOT DONE ENOUGH to prove Anwar had committed sodomy against Saiful.

After going through the evidence, I cannot be 100 percent certain that the evidence could have been compromised.

Hence, the court is reluctant to convict on such corrobaration of evidence from SP1 Saiful.

The court does not exclude the possibility the (DNA) samples were compromised. Therefore the accused is acquitted.”
he ruled to shouts of joy from Anwar’s supporters and family.

Anwar, a former deputy prime minister was charged with sodomising Saiful at the Desa Damansara condominium between 3.01pm and 4.30pm on June 26, 2008. He had been similarly indicted of sodomy over a decade ago and was found guilty. He spent six years in jail before being exonerated.

Anwar's wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail cried and hugged her elated husband.

In an immediate reaction, Anwar thanked his lawyers.

"I'm finally vindicated after the smearing of my character. I'm thankful to Wan Azizah and the team of lawyers led by Karpal Singh."

He also thanked the support of Pakatan Rakyat leaders.

"We want to continue on the reform agenda, fighting corruption, and freedom of the press."

WALL STREET JOURNAL: "Malaysia - One of the MOST Notorious and Long-Running Abuses of Power in the Muslim World "



8 January 2012

“We have a stake not just in the stability of nations, but in the self-determination of individuals.

…Failure to speak to the broader aspirations of ordinary people will only feed the suspicion that has festered for years that the United States pursues our own interests at their expense”.

–Barack Obama, US President

We have a stake not just in the stability of nations, but in the self-determination of individuals.

That was President Obama at the State Department last May, rolling out his own version of the freedom agenda for the Muslim world.

So why has the Administration been virtually silent when it comes to one of the most notorious and long-running abuses of power taking place in the Muslim world today—this one in our good friend and ally, Malaysia?

The abuses in question concern Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who on Monday faces a verdict—and potentially years of jail time—on dubious sodomy charges.

Mr. Anwar first went through this charade as a deputy prime minister in the late 1990s, when he fell out with then-Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad during the Asian financial crisis, was savagely beaten by police and ultimately sentenced to prison on sodomy and corruption charges.

Mr. Anwar spent six years in prison. In 2004 the sodomy charges were overturned by the country’s highest court—a year after Mr. Mahathir had left office.

Yet Mr. Anwar was again served with sodomy charges four years later, after the ruling UMNO party had lost its two-thirds majority and the opposition seemed close to assembling a parliamentary majority.

The current case is even flimsier than the last one. It is based mainly on the word of one accuser who, as it so happened, had met with then-deputy prime minister, now Prime Minister, Najib Razak days before the alleged incident.

Doctors at two hospitals could find no evidence of rape in the aftermath of the alleged incident. Nonetheless, political observers anticipate a guilty verdict.

This is happening in the context of growing discontent among Malaysians with UMNO’s ruling order, and Mr. Najib’s ambivalent attempts at political reform. But if that’s reminiscent of the unhappiness that presaged the Arab Spring, so too is the don’t-rock-the-boat attitude of the Obama Administration.

Malaysia is supposedly a moderate Muslim country and a useful regional counterweight to China, and the President was full of praise for Mr. Najib’s “great leadership” when they last met in November.

As for Mr. Anwar, the State Department has publicly offered no more than boilerplate about his case. Perhaps quiet diplomacy is now at work on Mr. Anwar’s behalf, but that kind of diplomacy is fine only as long as it produces results.

In the meantime, Malaysian democracy could benefit from a sign that the U.S. is not indifferent to Mr. Anwar’s legal ordeal or to the political system that has allowed it to continue. U.S. interests could benefit as well.

“Failure to speak to the broader aspirations of ordinary people will only feed the suspicion that has festered for years that the United States pursues our own interests at their expense,”
said Mr. Obama in May.

Mr. Anwar’s case gives the President a chance to show that he meant what he said.

Ex- UMNO ADUN says, " DAP is MORE Relevant and Functional in Achieving a MORE Democratic and Abuse-FREE Society."


Dato' Mohd.Ariff Sabri bin Hj. Abdul Aziz. aka "Sakmongkol AK47"

Read here for more

I am not going to respond to the xenophobic responses around news that Aspan Alias and Sakmongkol are about to join DAP. No explanation will be able to change preconceived biases. So why bother? So we are about to join or have joined DAP.

The DAP is a democratic party committed to the rule of law, good governance and good government. It abhors corruption and abuse of political office. To me those are attractive propositions.

UMNO on the other hand has turned its back on these. It harps only on one primal worry of Malays- when UMNO is threatened it shares the threat with Malays at large.

So a threat to UMNO is translated mindlessly into a threat to Malays as a whole. Nothing can be farther from the truth.

That is how UMNO has approached politics in Malaysia basically- make its fears public, make the gains private for selected Malays within UMNO.

I have only one message to that- those salad days and that halcyon period are over.

UMNO is trapped by its own successes. Indeed its supporters and leaders assume ownership of the wrong things and end up digging in to support the wrong choices.

My answer is, if we do indeed change our political vehicle that is what we are actually doing. Don’t read our move as blasphemous or treasonable.

The DAP is more relevant and functional in achieving a more democratic and abuse-free society. As a Muslim, we are changing wadah not aqidah.

So, I thought it would be more substantive to answer my critics by writing an article, why shouldn’t Malays embrace DAP politics? That’s the only way to dominate and conquer your fears.
  • How has DAP politics been inimical to the general political health of this country?

  • Can any DAP Chinese leader be a PM when it’s contesting only at most 50-55 seats?

  • Can any DAP non Malay leader harbor the dream of becoming a PM in a country dominated by Malays?

  • Has the DAP threatened the institution of Malay rulers?
DAP has never done THAT or will NOT be mad to countenance such rebellious idea, but UMNO on the other hand has insulted the Malay rulers way back in 1998 constitutional crisis.

Can we reasonably accept the allegation that the DAP is instrumental in claims that Malays are being converted into Christians when most DAP members are NOT themselves Christians?

We have to do better than that to take Malays as imbeciles. Only UMNO seems to do that.
  1. But DAP is Chinese chauvinist party and anti-Malay. I will answer by examining the deeds rather than slogans.

    When I was an ADUN in the Pahang Legislative assembly ( 2004-2008) I have NEVER heard the lone DAP member ever speak about anti Malay themes. He spoke about abuse of power, about mindless spending, he spoke about maladministration.

    The first book Lim Kit Siang writes that I read was Time Bombs in Malaysia. After that I read so many books written by Kit Siang that touched on the Maika Scandals, the BMF financial scandal and so on.

    If we are honest enough, we have to admit, the issues raised were never about one race dominating the other but were always about the abuses of those in power, corruption, and a continuous attack on policies that are ruinous to this country.

    So we are going to oppose Kit Siang on the basis of the fact that these things are spoken of by a Chinaman?

    To the Chinese UMNO is also a chauvinist Malay party except, their leaders can be easily bought. The Malay will sell all to abandon their cause. Er…correction, the UMNO Malay, I mean.

  2. I would also like to respond by saying- WHY Malays SHOULD consider joining DAP en masse. It’s a party committed to democratic principles and rule of law. I can only imagine, so many can prosper under a regime of freedom of speech within DAP.

    I can speak on the plight of the displaced and disowned Malays with more energy than allowed of in UMNO. The interest of Malays can be fought of on any political platform other than UMNO. That is what UMNO fears. Its monopoly is broken.

    So the past week I have had many friends calling me asking whether it’s true I am joining DAP? Some folks in my hometown, Pekan refer to me now as Dato DAP. I find the responses somewhat amusing and comical.

  3. There was a comment reminding me and Aspan as to who started May 13? The thrust of that reminder is to remind us; of his and others belief that DAP started the May 13 incident.

    Ok, you want to play ball, we play ball too.

    Since you want to know, what if I say Tun Razak allowed it to happen because the ensuing troubles would give him an excuse to kick out Tengku Abdul Rahman? The point is, there was no single contributor to the May 13 incident.

    But I would place some blame on Tun Razak who as Home Minister allowed things to degenerate. He allowed it so that a proclamation of emergency can be made.

  4. Finally, let me deal with certain responses from certain pro UMNO bloggers. The chief spokesman is of course that paid lackey and buffoon of a regurgitating machine. He does nothing but regurgitate material passed on to him by his paymasters.

    The material he writes and posts therefore emits the strong smell of vomit. The owner of the lard layered brain does what he does best- spewing personal attacks. And so he invites comments from likeminded mental gnomes to do what he has orchestrated.

    Why the paranoia?

    If we are not good, failed ADUN, bankrupt politicians, it will be cinch for any winnable UMNO candidates to beat us.

    So, it’s no cause of concern or a sleep depriver. But please remember to stop telling lies about us so that we can promise not to tell the truth about you.
I see a sense of hopelessness.

They cannot attack our nationalist credentials because we are as Malay as they are too ( to some we are , in fact more Malay in appearance and in thinking) – so they do what they do best.

Attack me on the personal side. No big deal.

My advice to these UMNO bloggers is simple. Please stop telling lies about me, and I promise not to tell the truth about you people.

And telling the truth about you people includes telling the truth about top UMNO leaders including the PM who is Pekan UMNO division head.

If we are so easily beatable, then why all the fuss?

We can’t do damage to invincible UMNO. We on the other hand, see UMNO as the party before, presently and forever stealing, pillaging and ruining the country.
