The rape of reason

MCA Wanita vice-chairperson Heng Seai Kie reportedly warned non-Muslim women that Muslim men would in effect rape them, particularly those who don’t conform to the Islamic dress code. This act, she declared, would be condoned by Nik Aziz and, by extension, his Pas party.

If Seai Kie is to be believed, then it is most advisable that she clamp herself with a chastity belt pronto to avoid untoward incident — and stay away from Malay-Muslim individuals, including those potent politicians who walk the corridors of power and those who have come into a political and electoral pact with her MCA party.

Such is the politics of fear that is being peddled by those who are being haunted by their own political uncertainty.

Rocked bottom

On a thosai-less Sunday, this old number is dedicated to those who have the incurable penchant for wriggling their tired, old bums.

Army Vets butt in the Bersih discourse

Apparently the 100 Plus drink is a no-no for Malays and Islam, but gyrating old bums seems kosher.

We’re simply the best

In a world of superlatives, Malaysia is no stranger.

For a recent example, see below which is extracted from Malaysiakini.

Despite numerous complaints over the electoral roll, Election Commission chief Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof declared that Malaysia has the cleanest electoral roll in the world.

In an interview with Sin Chew Daily published yesterday, Abdul Aziz repeatedly stressed that the existing electoral roll is clean and no country in the world has a cleaner one than ours.

Sniff-sniff! “We know who back the ‘anti-government blogs'”

Selangor Perkasa chairman Abdullah Mansor reportedly claims that they somehow ‘sense’ who fund the ‘anti-government blogs’ — although they haven’t got an iota of evidence so far and are still unable to pinpoint which of the many blogs are culpable.

He said that these blogs “are funded by either the United States or other foreign powers”.

This must be a conspiracy theory (and conspiracy theorists to boot) at its dizzying height.

Besides, surely being critical of the government isn’t, and shouldn’t be, tantamount to being unpatriotic to the country.

But more seriously, this is a crude reflection of a dense mind effortlessly insulting the intelligence of many conscientious Malaysians.

You’re simply the best

Former minister Rafidah Aziz recently claimed that there was no need for thorough reforms with existing government policies simply because they were instituted by an administrative system that could be rated as among “the best in the world”.

But then the BN government is not faultless after all in terms of governance as Rafidah would like us to believe. Even her party president and prime minister Najib Razak did admit that there had been mistakes committed by the federal government in the past.

Come to think of it. You don’t need to be a prime minister to point out what problems the Malaysian society has been facing over the years. Ordinary members of the public would tell you that corruption, violation of human rights, abuse of power, political arrogance, thuggery and rising costs of living are some of the things that are bothering the rakyat and hurting the economy.

So it does look like reform and meaningful change are very much needed.

Er, it’s okay to attend Thaipusam…

Perak Mufti Harussani Zakaria declared that it’s okay for Prime Minister Mohd Najib to have attended the recent Thaipusam celebration — after the latter had a personal chat with him recently.

So, folks, please delete his earlier comment on February 10 that he was dismayed over the Prime Minister’s decision “to sacrifice his faith” to attend the religious festival concerned.
