Najib Mistakes - A Lesson and Learn for Us



  • Najib do not have right quality / character in leadership - too soft, always playing safe, sprinkling money to buy loyalty and popularity, which he said CASH IS KING. Unlike (Tun) Dr Mahathir who's like debating and answering questions raised. His approaches in allowing dissent within and outside party actually have allowed him succeeded in his political endeavour. In other words, Najib approaches was short sighted, would not last long.
  • Najib do not have Malay blood in his vein, he just lucky having a late father who was founding father of his nation and his own party. He built his political ascendency through his late father influence and Malay feudalism character of loyalty without questioning.
  • Najib was also wasn't seen as a true political fighter that fighting for his own people interest, furthermore this 1MDB polemic have tarnished his reputation and widening public perception towards him as a corrupt leader.  
  • Najib also failed to quash public perception towards his wife - he was seen under control of his wife (queen control), which every leaders must avoid in order to be seen as a credible leader to the nation and people he representing.
  • Najib decision to remove those internal dissenters will only brought in disaster for his political mileage. Eventually the messages from the grassroots will not reaching his ear, will be filtered by his apple polishers who's cares only their self interest - this wasn't in line with democratic principle.
  • Najib have elephant in the room of 1MDB polemic that currently under public scrutiny. Everyday new discoveries exposed to the public either deliberately or inadvertently. The more he's trying to conceal it, more evident exposed. It's remind me of Sir Isaac Newton 3rd law of motion - For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action - the current political crisis fits that bill.
  • Najib have ruined this country, there's no turning back to bring back the reputation he once have, therefore his resignation inevitable. In fact the magnitude of this offence requires punishment. If you look back the history of Daim Zainuddin in politic, Daim was asked to leave on the basis of the public perception that was detrimental to the party, even though there's no evident to prove his misconduct or misdeed. Nevertheless Daim stepped down voluntarily without any drama or controversy. Maybe some of us forgotten to remember that (Tun) Dr Mahathir himself has stepped down voluntarily, this is lead by example that he have taught us all this while.

Prinsip dan Perjuangan

1) Aku dibesarkan ketika era Tun Dr Mahathir jadi PM Malaysia. Arwah ayah merupakan salah seorang penyokong dan peminat beliau. Disebabkan itulah aku jadi penyokong kuat UMNO, berpunca dari didikan Tun tentang perlunya berlaku jujur dalam perjuangan kita. Sebenarnya banyak yang telah dipelajari dari buku - buku beliau. Keberanian dalam menyatakan kebenaran dan berpegang kepada prinsip juga merupakan didikan beliau.


2) Apa yang telah dilalui dan aku dapati, betapa sukarnya untuk kita melalui ranjau yang datang ketika mempertahankan prinsip yang dipegang. Ini menuntut kecekalan hati, bersikap objektif, berani dan juga perlu istiqamah.


3) Pendirian ini dapat mendedahkan wajah sebenar orang di sekeliling kita, wajah sebenar adik - beradik, kawan - kawan dan juga lawan. Yang penting kita haruslah jujur dan percaya sepenuhnnya apa yang diperjuangkan.


4) Jika diamati dan dibandingkan dengan polemik yang berlaku di Negara ketika ini, boleh didapati dengan jelas, siapakah pemimpin yang berjiwa rakyat, siapakah yang tak jujur yang korup, yang bermain selamat, yang pentingkan diri sendiri, yang berjuang untuk diri sendiri, yang bukannya berjuang untuk parti yang diwakili.


5) Demi agama, bangsa dan Negara hanyalah slogan politik demi masa depan diri sendiri. Benarlah apa yang pernah diucapkan oleh bekas president Amerika Abraham Lincoln " nearly all men can overcome adversity, but if you to test a man's character, give him power". Inilah realiti yang berlaku kepada Negara kita ketika ini. Seperti yang pernah dinyatakan oleh Tun Dr Mahathir sebelum ini, Pak Lah dan Najib nampak begitu baik ketika sebelum jadi PM, tetapi telah bertukar jadi sebaliknya sebaik sahaja mendapat kuasa. Ia jelas mendedahkan kepada kita betapa rendahnya akhlak pemimpin kita, betapa rendahnya prinsip masing - masing, hanya kerana wang dan kuasa.


6) Yang pastinya setiap daripada kita akan jatuh suatu masa nanti, bila sampai masanya kelak, kita akan diadili. Najib bakal menempuhinya suatu masa nanti. Kesalahan yang dilakukan oleh beliau teramat berat, yang wajar dihukum, dan aku tak akan terkejut jika beliau diadili dan dihukum setimpalnya.


7) Ingin aku sampaikan sajak di bawah agar kita kembali merenung kembali hujung dan pangkal perjalanan hidup kita. Seperti kata pepatah Melayu, tersesat jalan kembali ke pangkal jalan.


Negara-ku Malaysia, Tanahair-ku, Tanah di mana sembilan puluh tahun dahulu
Darah tumpah dan aku dilahir
Di lahir sebagai anak bangsa yang dijajah
Aku membesar mempertuankan orang asing
Terhina dan dihina
Bangsa yang serba kekurangan
Tinggal dipondok berbumbung atap nipah
Berdinding, berlantai kayu
Namun aku lebih bahagia dari ramai bangsaku
Mereka tinggal di pondok robek, tiris apabila hujan
Tanpa pili air tanpa lampu letrik
Anak mereka berkaki ayam, berkudis
Demam panas dan kadang-kadang meninggal
Aku survive, aku ke sekolah, aku ke universiti
Nasib aku lebih baik
Allah Subhanahu Wataala kesian kepada aku
Setelah dijajah oleh satu bangsa, dijajah pula oleh dua bangsa lagi
Aku bertanya akan bangsaku selalunya dijajah orangkah?
Alhamdullilah, berkat kesedaran, berkat perjuangan, berkat perpaduan
Bangsaku dibebas, merdeka
Apakah merdeka hanya bermakna tidak dijajah orang
Apakah merdeka bermakna terus merana
Tidak, tidak, tidak
Merdeka bermakna kemajuan
Kemajuan sehingga berdiri sama tinggi
Duduk sama rendah dengan bekas penjajah dan bangsa lain
Bahkan mungkin lebih tinggi
Politik yang menyelamat dahulu
Terus membela bangsa
Negara dibangun, bangsa dibangun, agama di muliakan
Kemudian…
Malang dan sedih,
Bangsa yang berjiwa kental, bersemangat besi
Diserang oleh nafsu dan perasaan tamak
Aku dapat apa dari kemerdekaan tanya mereka?
Mana bahagian aku?
Dan semangat pun menjadi luntur, tidak terdaya mengawal nafsu

Apa makna senang jika untuk mendapat sesuatu begitu susah
Dan nafsu dan perasaan tamak pun di peralat dan disogok oleh orang-orang politik dan orang kaya
Bangsa yang merdeka
Bangsa yang mulia
Sekarang sanggup menjual hak yang sedikit
Hak memilih, hak mengundi
Untuk mendapat kesenangan tanpa usaha, kesenangan yang sedikit
Maruah dijual
Bangsa dijual
Tanahair dijual
Segalanya dijual
Untuk nikmat yang tidak kekal, nikmat yang sementara yang sedikit sahaja
Politik yang menyelamat
Menjadi politik yang menghancur
Pemimpin semakin tamak
Untuk tempat dan kedudukan tinggi
Perbuatan yang haram dihalalkan
Nama Allah diperalatkan, dijual untuk nikmat yang sementara di dunia
Akan kembalikah bangsaku
Menjadi bangsa yang dijajah, dihina dan diperhambakan
Wahai bangsaku
Begitu mudahkah kamu lupa
Aku akan pergi tidak lama lagi
Dapatkah aku pejam mata dan hembus nafas terakhir
Kerana bangsaku
Negaraku
Masih mulia
Masih bermaruah
Masih dipandang tinggi
Atau mataku terbeliak
Nafasku tersesak, terhenti, kerana segala yang diperjuangkan luput ditelan nafsu
Ya Allah lindungilah bangsaku
Sedarkanlah mereka
Sedarkan mereka bahawa Engkau tidak akan mengubah nasib bangsa
Melainkan bangsa itu sendiri cuba mengubahnya
Mengubah sendiri, membendung nafsu
Kerana Allah
Kerana agama
Kerana bangsa
Kerana negara
Biarlah aku pergi
Mata terpejam rapat
Nafas perlahan berhenti…

Plaza Low Yat, Sejarah dan Kaum

1) Apakah iktibar yang boleh kita perolehi dari isu rusuhan dan pergaduhan di Plaza Low Yat baru - baru ini? Apakah isu sebenarnya, isu kaum ke atau isu telifon bimbit?


2) Pada aku iktibar yang berlaku, adalah realiti pepecahan yang berlaku antara kaum Melayu dan Cina. Sila baca pandangan Tun Dr M di sini.


3) Terdapat 2 objektif yang ingin aku capai apabila membuat keputusan untuk menghantar anak aku belajar di Smart Readers kid;
  •  Beliau boleh bergaul dengan anak - anak kaum lain dalam suasana iklim pembelajaran yang sihat. Beliau akan belajar berinteraksi dengan anak - anak kaum lain tanpa sekatan kaum.
  • Kaedah pembelajaran yang disediakan sesuai untuk masa depan beliau disamping berada dalam iklim yang kompetitif.
4) Suatu perkara lagi, suasana yang dirasai oleh Melayu ketika ini, adalah perasaan diketepikan dalam perkongsian kek ekonomi Negara. Ketika ini kek ekonomi ini sedang menyusut, maka tinggallah kelompok - kelompok yang kompetitif yang sudah stabil dan kuat, mendominasi sebahagian besar daripadanya.

5) Kepimpinan korup dan kontroversi yang melanda kepada parti pemerintah, telah memburukkan lagi keadaan, ketika rakyat menghadapi cabaran getir persekitaran ekonomi yang gawat, kos sara hidup yang tinggi dan meningkat. Manakala kepimpinan tidak memperlihatkan dan bertindak bersama - sama dengan rakyat menanggung beban ini - kepimpinan melalui tauladan.


6) Pemimpin - pemimpin politik dan Negara yang hidup dalam penafian, tidak ikhlas dalam perjuangan mempertahankan bangsa dan Negara. Dimana 90% daripada mereka lebih sibuk menpertahankan jawatan masing - masing. Akhirnya realiti yang menimpa rakyat tidak diketengahkan secara objektif, sebaliknya sibuk mempertahankan jawatan PM dengan harapan PM akan terhutang budi kepada mereka.


7) Isu di Plaza Low Yat baru - baru ini merupakan isu kecil, tetapi ia boleh menjadi isu besar jika tidak ditangani secara tegas dan berani. Malah ia telah menjadi isu perkauman, disebabkan ketidakpuasan antara kaum yang telah wujud sejak merdeka lagi. Masalah ini bertambah buruk sejak tahun 2008 lagi apabila ahli - ahli politik samaada dari pembangkang mahupun parti pemerintah sibuk memainkan sentimen kaum bagi meraih undi.


8) Maka kaum Melayu mula berasa tergugat akibat pepecahan yang berlaku disebabkan oleh ahli - ahli politik yang sibuk ingin menjadi hero tanpa memikirkan kesan yang bakal berlaku kepada perpaduan antara kaum.


9) Kunci perpaduan antara kaum mestilah didahului oleh orang Melayu dengan kembali bersatu. Sejarah telah membuktikannya apabila orang Melayu bersatu, ia bakal menghasilkan elemen yang kuat, dan memberi signal kepada kaum lain untuk turut serta dengan orang Melayu bagi mencapai kemakmuran dalam Negara. Sejarah kemerdekaan Negara boleh dijadikan contoh, dan sejarah kejayaan BN mempertahankan majoriti 2/3 pada pilihanraya 1999, apabila kaum Cina memberi undi kepada BN yang diterajui oleh orang Melayu dari parti UMNO, walaupun undi kaum Melayu sendiri kepada BN jatuh.


10) Benarlah kata Tun Dr. Mahathir, kalau hendak lihat masa depan, kita kenalah lihat sejarah, kerana sejarah boleh memberi panduan yang amat berguna kepada kita mengharungi masa depan. Malangnya ramai daripada kita tidak minat sejarah, apakan lagi mendalami dan menghayatinya.

LGBT and Social Impact


1) Recently my colleague have discussion on the acceptance of LGBT in the public realm. As a hard devotee of Catholic, a friend of mine clearly unfavored to the acceptance of LGBT in public domain, using her belief in Catholicism and teaching, she failed to convince my other colleague on her stand.

2) In parallel with general opinion on this issue, I have my own point against this LGBT, on the pretext of their demands to be accepted by the public on the basis of their human right. Is their right to be a gay or lesbian or transgender, I have no problem with that to be honest as long as it's do not detrimental to our society at large.

3) But its also become my concern when this minority start demanding their right to be accepted by the public. Clearly it wasn't down well to the public, and will create public unrest, since it wasn't suit to our general public/social customs.

4) To me when a certain group or individuals or minority demanding their right to be accepted by the majority, it was a sign of arrogance of extremism by the minority, and the majority of moderate of course will feel their right are in jeopardy, then the social unrest would occur.

5) First of all, the public must understand why this LGBT is no good to our social. When the British law started to accept gay marriage, the British people would gonna have problem in the future. It shows the British parliament now succumbed to LGBT extremist demands. It's means the right of the moderates now under treat, and in the end will create a social unrest in the next 20 to 50 years.



6) I can't imagine what would happen to Elton John son when he grew older. Definitely he would become confused when discovering his mother have the same gender with his farther, contradicted to the majority of general parenthood. This is the social problem that Islam and other religions against, because it would create havoc to our society. This sort of reason never been explained by our religious preachers, apart from explaining that it was forbidden in Islam.

7) That is why Islam advocates moderation, and against extremism, because of negative impact that would occur when the extremism rule the world.

Najib's Days are Numbered

1) I would like to look into philosophical view on controversies surrounding DS Najib right now.

2) Everybody knows that mainstream media's i.e. TV3, RTM, Utusan Melayu etc are being used to defend Najib reputation in the public eye. Tun Mahathir was singled out as main enemy and character assassinations being carry out by these media's. Everything related to Tun M, from Proton, Tun Daim, Tun M sons etc being used to tarnish Tun M reputation. Even personalities from opposition parties were called to provide their version of stories to fulfil their wicked lust. Theory of conspiracy [same like Anwar Ibrahim] - were using to denigrate Tun M reputation.

3) Substantial amount of monies in the name of BR1M, and funding to UMNO bloggers and political comrades. Positions either in politic or corporate sector were granted to those who can give their blind supports in order to safeguard and reinforce his political power [the same approach carried out by Anwar Ibrahim]. It is no surprise to see MT UMNO, UMNO division heads and cabinet ministers have given their blind support - even though the magnitude of his offence was crystal clear. If you watching berita TV3, the large amount of time were concentrating to counter attack Tun M. But the real issues of higher living cost, GST etc that fall upon people were never or given very limited time.

4) Please read all the mainstream newspapers, from KJ till Zahid Hamidi, all of them are busy defending Najib. The public grouse on the affect of GST, are never considered or given less highlight. All ministers are busy safeguarding their positions, forgetting their true responsibility in representing their own people or constituency.

5) I can understand Tun M feeling or concern after miscalculating, choosing the wrong person to lead our country, from Anwar Ibrahim, Pak Lah till Najib, all of them failed to fulfil their duty as a leader of this country. That is why he refuse to throw his support to Tan Sri Muhyiddin to be a PM, furthermore TS Muhyiddin seems uninterested to move up higher than his current position despite being asked in several occasions.

6) Every time Najib spin doctor up the ante, spinning the stories to damaging Tun M credibility, the bad karma will curse on him instead. Now out of the blue, WSJ came out with damaging story of USD700 million related to 1MDB transferred into Najib personal account. I don't know how true this story is, but certainly it wasn't good for our country image, which will further hampering foreign direct investment and devaluing our currency. Eventually rakyat going to bare the brunt, not Najib.    

7) The only way to end this fiasco and catastrophe, is by releasing Najib from his current duty as PM of Malaysia.

Bible Study

1) My colleague a hard devotee of Catholism, who occasionally will have bible study with her church friends. They would discuss and understand the teaching brought through their "words of GOD" in Bible.

2) This has remind me of how about my fellow Muslims, are they do the same thing? - reading Quran and understand our "words of GOD". Why I am asking this? It is because our Muslims world too much confine ourselves in understanding the teaching of ustaz / Islamic preachers until neglecting the main teaching of Islam brought through our Quran. Consequently it has produced too much confusion and branches, resulting deviation by some our brothers.

3) We may forget what Quran has taught us, that all Muslims are brothers. This basic teaching taught in Quran is no longer followed. And yet we are more believe to the teaching of our ustaz / preachers than the Quran itself, resulting disunity within our Muslims world.

4) GOD will not change the fate of His believers unless they change it. Understanding this would allow us accepting the fate that befall upon us.

The Malaysian Reserve with Tun Daim

1) I find this video footage would be informative and useful for us to look back our past history on Tun Daim perspective. Maybe we can learn something from this about how to run a business and the knowledge of how to run a country economy and a little bit of politics.




 

2) I have very limited knowledge about Daim all this while, until I found this video footages which quite interesting where Daim briefed his early days in school, business and politics. This video footages more or less has proved my sentiment about Daim all this while, I like him for what he has contributed to this country and his story proved that. These informations shared could useful for our current leadership, but I sceptic they would.
