12 Iklan Hari Raya Di TV3 Wajar Ditarik Balik!

Penulis merasa agak terkilan dengan menonton iklan hari raya terbitan TV3 tahun 2010. Iklan ini memaparkan bagaimana seorang pakcik berbasikal roda tiga yang mengangkut cucu mereka terbang ke bulan umpama seorang Santa Claus membawa pendati yang diheret oleh rusa-rusanya. Apakah ini caranya mengambarkan suasana lebaran yang menyerupai Hari Natal. Tambahan lagi, apa kena mengena bunga teratai di dalam iklan tersebut dengan hari lebaran? Bukankah bunga teratai amat sinonim dengan perayaan Thaipusam? Lihatlah iklan berkenaan yang telah dimuat turun di Youtube, di sini.

Jika iklan ini diulang-ulang, maka jangan terkejut sekiranya selepas ini ramai penganut Islam celup di luar sana yang terikut-ikut dengan budaya dan kepercayaan agama lain. Silap-silap boleh menyebabkan tergelincir akidah dan lebih teruk boleh murtad. Jika nak buat iklan 1Malaysia pun, tolong jangan melibatkan hal-hal keagamaan. Tolong jaga keaslian Agama Islam. Pihak media tolong ambil perhatian. Jangan tunjuk kejahilan diri. Penulis berharap agar pihak TV3 tolong peka terhadap hal-hal sebegini. Sepatutnya setiap keluaran perlu melibatkan pandangan orang pandai Agama.

Penulis masih ingat beberapa tahun dahulu ada mufti yang telah memfatwakan bahawa iklan kongsi raya adalah haram. Apakah perkara yang sama telah berulang? Apakah iklan ini terlepas pandang dari pantauan Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM). Apakah pihak SKMM hanya sibuk dengan kes-kes di internet seperti kes Namewee dan Hassan Skodeng? Penulis ingin ingatkan 1Malaysia bukan bererti kita semua menganut satu Agama. Sensitiviti umat Malaysia di negara ini perlu dijaga. Diharap pihak TV3 dapat menarik kembali siaran iklan berkenaan dengan kadar segera.

9 Intelligent Riddle

DS Anwar Ibrahim once has an opportunity to meet former Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew over a cup of tea. Anwar Ibrahim then asked Lee Kuan Yew, "Mr Lee, how do you run such an efficient government before? Are there any tips you can give to me?"

"Well," said Lee, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."

Anwar frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?"

Lee took a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy, you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle." Lee pushed a button on his intercom. "Please send Goh Chok Thong in here, would you?"

Goh Chok Thong walked into the room and said, "Yes, my mentor?"

Lee smiled and said, "Answer me this please, Goh, your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"

Without pausing for a moment, Goh answered, "That would be me."

"Yes! Very good," said Lee.

Anwar Ibrahim went back home to ask his counterpart, Lim Kit Siang the same question. "Answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"

"I'm not sure," said Lim Kit Siang. "Let me get back to you on that one." He went to his advisors and asked every one, but none could give him an answer. Finally, he ended up in the men's room and recognized TS Mahyuddin's shoes in the next stall. Lim Kit Siang didn't want but asked anyway, "Tan Sri, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"

TS Mahyuddin yelled back, "That's easy, it's me!"

Lim Kit Siang smiled, and said, "Thanks!" Then, he went back to speak with Anwar Ibrahim.

"Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's TS Mahyuddin!"

Anwar Ibrahim got up, stomped over to Lim Kit Siang, and angrily yelled into his face, "No! You idiot! It's Goh Chok Thong!"

16 Setengah Juta Untuk Sekolah Cina Swasta - Siapa Yang "Racist"?

Speaker DUN Selangor, Teng Cham Kim, semalam melalui laman sosial Twitter dengan bangganya menyebut:
"Selangor gvmet gives RM500K to every Chinese Independent school in Selangor. BN can't do it, so it gives RM15K to 50 students."
Apabila ADUN-ADUN DAP hendak memberikan wang sumbangan kepada surau-surau sebanyak hanya RM1,000, umat Islam Selangor merelakan saf-saf sembahyang dipijak-pijak semata-mata untuk mengemis habuan yang sedikit. Sedangkan Kerajaan DAP Selangor dengan begitu "racist" menyumbang SETENGAH JUTA RINGGIT MALAYSIA untuk setiap sekolah Cina swasta yang tidak langsung berada di bawah Kementerian Pelajaran. Siapa yang "racist" dan perkauman? Berapalah agaknya dana yang diperolehi oleh Sekolah Agama Rakyat daripada Kerajaan DAP Selangor? Itupun masih ramai orang Melayu Islam yang tidak sedar diri menyokong parti "racist" DAP.

6 Bukti Kenapa Satu Sebab Hudud PAS Wajar Ditolak

Fasal 14 dalam Enakmen Kesalahan Jenayah Syariah (Hudud dan Qisas) Terengganu dan Enakmen 16 Kanun Jenayah Syariah Kelantan jelas menyatakan liwat bukan kesalahan jika dilakukan terhadap isteri, sesuatu yang bertentangan dengan Kanun Keseksaan dan hukum Agama. Fasal berkenaan dipetik berbunyi:
"Liwat adalah satu kesalahan yang merupakan persetubuhan di antara seorang lelaki dengan seorang lelaki yang lain atau di atara seorang lelaki dengan seorang perempuan SELAIN ISTERINYA yang dilakukan di luar tabii iaitu melalui dubur."
Masyaallah, begitu rendah nilai seorang isteri di mata juak-juak PAS. Walaupun Agama Islam mengHARAMkan liwat atau "mendatangi" isteri melalui duburnya, namun Enakmen Kesalahan Syariah (Hudud dan Qisas) di Terangganu dan Kanun Jenayah Syariah Kelantan ternyata menghalalkannya. Penerangan Ayat Al Quran dan Hadis mengenai pengharaman mendatangi isteri melalui duburnya boleh di baca di sini.

2 Merdeka 2010: Top 10 Things To Be Proud Of

Malaysia celebrates its 53rd year of independence this August 31st. This number may seem small compared to many other countries, but our long, storied history is no less impressive, nor less captivating. 53 years of blood, sweat and toil have carried us to our current perch on the world stage. Sure, we've had our share of false starts and disappointments, but they pale in comparison to our triumphs and moments of resilience. In conjunction with Merdeka Day, we bring you the top 10 things that all Malaysians - regardless of ethnicity, religion, or creed - can be proud of and thankful for.

1. Mamak

The mamak is not just a food outlet, it's a communal experience. Millions of Malaysians spend hours and hours (entire nights and early mornings) just sitting around at a mamak and talking about a million different things. It's an essential, ruthlessly unavoidable part of Malaysian socializing. The mamak serves almost every purpose - whether to catch up with friends, to watch a major football match, to have a heated political/philosophical discussion, or to grab a late night snack after bar/club-hopping. Though not necessarily delicious or even sanitary, the food is almost always cheap. Hence the mamak is also a great equalizer - Malaysians of every class and background regularly participate in the mamak 'ritual'. That's why it deserves number 1 on our list. It's the best thing to happen to this country since ... well ... the Ramly burger.

2. Ramly Burger

This is no ordinary burger, no ordinary food item. The Ramly burger franchise is one of the most successful homegrown businesses and emblematic of Malaysian's East-West dichotomy. The burger is Western, but its fillings and many possible 'modifications' thoroughly Malaysian. Its status in Malaysia is nothing less than iconic. One is often overwhelmed by smug satisfaction after uttering the words "Burger daging/ayam double special tambah cheese tambah sos" in rapid succession. (Um, all you vegetarian Malaysians could perhaps opt for "Burger kosong tambah sayur banyak-banyak"?) Few things can beat the sloppy, buttery joy (and calorie value) of digging into a Ramly burger with some company out on the street. Sure, you may be condemning yourself to cardiovascular doom, but do it for palate and country.

3. Lots of Holidays

Who doesn't love holidays? And thank the stars, we have plenty of them. (Workaholics, go read something else.) In fact, this year we welcome a brand new holiday on September 16th - Malaysia Day. Thanks to Malaysia's ethnic and religious diversity, the country has more excuses to take the day (or two) off than most other countries. Even if you're not celebrating or observing, everyone looks forward to Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Chinese New Year, Deepavali, Wesak, Christmas, and the list goes on. We are truly 1Malaysia in holiday love.

4. Food, glorious food and all the time Malaysia can be accurately described as a 24-hour buffet.

At ungodly hours (say 3 a.m.), one could stroll out and grab almost any kind of grub. This is in contrast with many Western countries where most shops and restaurants close shortly after dark (or at least extremely early by our standards). You're probably too familiar with complaints about this from Malaysians studying or working overseas. Lucky you, lucky us. It's a miracle that our population doesn't consist entirely of lumbering balls of fat already. There must be something about the heat and Asian metabolism that keeps obesity in check (somewhat).

5. Sales all the time

There always seems to be a sales event/period just around the corner. And that seems quite appropriate too. After all, where would our economy be if not for the millions of Malaysians and foreign tourists who are imprudently generous with their pockets? To hell with savings. We Malaysians suffer from long traffic jams, longer working hours, and slow, unreliable Internet connections. Constant retail therapy keeps us happy. Also, it keeps our economy happy too. We can't lose here.

6. Cultural diversity

If you want a rich cultural experience, you could do worse than Malaysia. Here, we've got three major ethnic groups - Malay, Chinese, Indian - plus countless others that contribute to the country's diverse melting pot. It's easy to be enamoured with the various customs, quirks, foods, and festivities of each group. Malaysia is heaven for linguists and language buffs. Spoken are English, Malay and its regional dialects, the various Chinese dialects, Hindi, Tamil, and many others. Also, fashionable shoppers have access to the full breadth and range of Asian attire.

7. A robust economy

Okay, so we're not a rabid mutant overdosing on steroids (see China) when it comes to the economy. But we're still doing pretty good, especially considering the fact that there was an OMG-worthy global recession recently. The economy expanded by 8.9% year-on-year in this year's second quarter, following a first quarter figure of 10.1% - the highest since 2000. And oh, we've got the highest GDP (gross domestic product) per capita in Southeast Asia after Singapore and Brunei. Not too shabby, we think. And don't forget according to Newsweek, we're number 63 in the world and number 3 in the Asia nominated for the best place to live.

8. Awesome vacation spots Redang, Tioman, Pangkor, Langkawi, Sipadan, and more

We've got awesome vacation spots. And they don't lack in either number or diversity. Fancy the sun, sand, and coral? Try one of the islands. Wanna gamble your savings away? ('cause you're bad*** that way) Head to Genting Highlands. Hiking and climbing your thing? Mark Kinabalu National Park on your map.

9. Natural disaster-free, comparatively pleasant weather Mother nature's been good to us

Sure, the hot days have been getting hotter and the wet days wetter - no doubt thanks to climate change. But we don't get the almost biblical, catastrophic floods that have ravaged Pakistan and China in the last few months. We're also earthquake and volcano free. Our neighbour, Indonesia, isn't so lucky. So next time you're cursing under your breath when cranking up the air-conditioning, remember that we have it pretty good in this region.

10. Relative peace and stability

It may be odd to have this on the list, what with the infamous cow-protest, attacks on places of worship, and the seemingly worsening relations between Malaysia's ethnic groups. Yet it's an unassailable fact that Malaysia remains one of the most peaceful and stable countries in Southeast Asia. Call us uninteresting, but take a look around: Thailand is frequently paralyzed by a yet unresolved political crisis and massive protests. Religious minorities in Indonesia are sounding the alarm about violent acts directed at them, and the government's inaction at stopping this. Journalists were massacred in the Philippines and trial witnesses wound up dead.

So if all that makes us the dull kid in the group, so be it. Happy 53rd Merdeka Day!

28 Namawee Bacul Ajak Ketua Puteri UMNO Berdebat

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dua hari lepas telah mengarahkan pihak berkuasa menyiasat Wee Meng Chee atau dikenali sebagai ‘Namewee’, pemuda dari Muar, Johor yang didakwa mengulangi perbuatan biadabnya dengan menerbitkan klip video yang boleh menyemarakkan api perkauman. Selaras dengan arahan Perdana Menteri tersebut, pihak polis telah membuka kertas siasatan berhubung tindakan Namewee ekoran penerbitan klip video yang boleh menyemarakkan api perkauman.

Hari ini Namewee sekali lagi mengundang kontroversi apabila beliau mencabar pengkritiknya, Ketua Puteri Umno, Datuk Rosnah Rashid Shirlin untuk berdebat secara terbuka. Sebelum ini Rosnah mendesak kerajaan bertindak tegas terhadap Namewee kerana didakwanya telah mengulangi perbuatan yang dianggap biadap, kali ini dengan menerbitkan klip video yang boleh menyemarakkan api perkauman. Menurut Rosnah, klip video terbaru Namewee yang disifatkan berbaur perkauman dengan merujuk kepada kes seorang guru yang dikatakan membuat kenyataan berbaur perkauman.

Di dalam kenyataan yang disiarkan di dalam blognya dan juga dipetik oleh Malaysiakini, Namewee berkata:
"Saya ingin tahu daripadanya (Rosnah), kenapa dia menyerang mangsa (masyarakat Malaysia), sedangkan pelaku sebenar isu ini belum dihukum. Jika dia merasakan saya tidak menghormati dan tidak mempunyai rasa tanggungjawab terhadap negara saya sendiri, maka sila terima pelawaan untuk berdebat secara terbuka tentang isu ini. Bantu kami rakya Malaysia untuk mendefinisikan, bagaimana untuk menjadi warganegara Malaysia yang patriotik, tolong ajar kami. Banyak tuduhan dilemparkan terhadap saya sejak 2007, tidak ada yang nampaknya membela diri saya di arena politik. Nama saya telah dipergunakan dalam banyak insiden oleh ahli politik sejak bertahun-tahun. Kali ini saya tidak akan membiarkan tuduhan kosong tanpa asas dilemparkan terhadap saya lagi. Saya hanya seorang individu tanpa agenda atau motif politik, yang ingin menyuarakan pendapatnya menentang sikap perkauman di negara ini."
Bagi saya agak dayus bagi Namewee untuk mengajak Rosnah berdebat di dalam isu yang telah menimbulkan kemarahan Rakyat Melayu Islam di Malaysia. Sekiranya Namewee merasakan dirinya tidak bersalah, kenapa beliau telah menarik kembali klip video perkaumannya dari "Youtube"? Kes ini masih dalam siasatan pihak polis. Biar pihak polis yang mengendalikannya dan bergantung kepada Jabatan Peguam Negara untuk memutuskan sama ada kes ini akan di bawa ke mahkamah.

Sekiranya Namewee masih tidak berpuas hati dan masih ingin berdebat, saya bersedia menawarkan diri saya untuk berdebat dengan anda bagi mengantikan tempat Rosnah. Pepatah English mengatakan "pick your own size" dan jangan jadi dayus mengajak kaum hawa berdebat. Pilih tarikh, masa anda dan tempat perdebatannya. Kalau merasakan perdebatan tidak dapat menyelesaikan masalah dan merasakan beradu tenaga sebagai jalan penyelesaiaannya, pillih gelanggang anda dan bentuk senjatanya. Saya sanggup menerima cabaran anada. Kita tengok siapa yang kecundang satu lawan satu. Saya bukan "racist" kepada kaum Cina tetapi Cina seekor ini perlu diajar bagaimana hendak menjadi warganegara yang patriotik.
