I wrote on Saturday how silly it is for people to go berserk over the private bill by Abd Hadi Awang of PAS seeking to enhance the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, 1965.
The religion of the Federation of Malaysia is Islam as given by Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution. However, other religions may be practiced in peace and harmony. The words peace and harmony are written explicitly to underscore the fact that other religions are being protected by the Constitution. One must also remember the first part of that article stating that Islam is the religion of the Federation. It is the religion and not the official religion.
The British came to Malaya through treaties. The states of Malaya, save for Pulau Pinang and Melaka, were never colonies of Britain. Malaya consists of nine sovereign states. Four were the Federated Malay States while five were Unfederated. The religions of these states have always been Islam. This is evident in a letter from Stamford Raffles to his cousin, Reverend Thomas Raffles that “Religion and laws are so united” in Muslim dominated areas that the introduction of Christian beliefs will bring about “much mischief, much bitterness of heart and contention”. You can read more on this in a previous writing of mine called The Case for God .
I had had a lengthy debate with MCA’s Ti Lian Ker, a senior partner at Messrs Wong, Law & Ti, as he had went on to conduct a session for MCA members on the “far-reaching consequences of the Hudud bill.” When asked, Ti could not even tell me the name of the proposed bill.
For the benefit of the rest, the bill seeks to enhance the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, 1965; a law that is prescribed to Muslims only!
Ti asked me two questions: first – why the hush-hush before allowing Hadi to speak in Parliament about it? For a senior politician to not know the processes of a private bill tickles me. Hadi was merely seeking the August House’s permission to table the bill. He was not tabling the bill. And it is not a BN or UMNO bill. A private bill is a bill that is not proposed by the ruling government. It is proposed by members of the Opposition or backbenchers.
In this respect, Hannah Yeoh as the DAP Speaker for the Selangor State Assembly summed it up real well when Selangor UMNO actually wanted to table a Hudud bill for the state. Watch from 0:38.
Hadi, has as much right that has been accorded to other members of Parliament to table out anything, with the agreement of the House. For once I agree with PKR’s N Surendran who explained the process above.
Ti’s second question to me was:
This is what happens when you speak before your brain could even begin to think. Then you add chaos into the confusion. Article 145 of the Federal Constitution clearly states that the Attorney-General has no jurisdiction over Syariah laws. Syariah laws are made according to the sub-articles of Article 3. Imagine a senior partner of a law firm not knowing this. For the record, Ti never replied me.
And isn’t it detrimental to the cohesion of the Barisan Nasional that a very ill-informed and non-Muslim person such as Ti to go around explaining to members of the MCA something even he does not grasp? Maybe he should have asked a very recently former MCA member to give clarification on the issue instead:
Some of Ti’s followers, concerned that actual Hudud would eventually be enforced, refused to read Articles 3(1), 11(1) of the Federal Constitution that protects the right to practice one’s religion in peace and harmony. Instead they cited Pakistan as an example of extreme Syariah laws.
I don’t know what is it with people who don’t read. The official name of Pakistan itself is a dead giveaway. Since 1973, the country is known as The Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Even in the preambles of its Constitution clearly states the intent and spirit of the state and its Constitution:
Every religious group has the right to manage its own affairs
By intruding, isn’t this right given also to the Muslims in Malaysia being denied by the non-Muslims? Remember, Islam is the religion of the Federation and others are given the rights to practice theirs in peace and harmony. So, why intrude into our affairs?
None of Ti’s followers or defenders quoted me those Articles as asked. Instead they continued to make comparisons between Malaysia and Pakistan.
Their concern is the “protection of the Constitution.” I have written on Saturday how the Federal Constitution remains the supreme law of the land. All the proposals submitted by Hadi that trangress the limits given by the Constitution have been shot down as shown in this table that has now been widely shared:
Let me ask you this: is there anywhere there that says the amendments include its application to non-Muslims? Any proposal for non-Muslim houses of worship to be torn down?
Now, remember! Hadi is merely seeking the permission to table the private bill. Until then he cannot do so. The house will have to debate this and vote on it. So instead of making monkeys out of themselves, shouldn’t the BN non-Muslim MPs take a step back and digest the House rules like smart people should? The following would have been totally unnecessary:
Really? We know that you did not get the lion’s share of your respective community’s votes and this is a good opportunity to try and garner support. You could have done it smartly by saying “we will seek clarification from Hadi and explain to our community” instead of jumping up and down without knowing head or tail about the proposal. It should be the Muslim community to react and not the rest as it would be their liberties affected. Mind you, most of the proposals are already laws in all the states.
It is Dood Day + 3. And already there is a storm in the BN hood over Hudud.
Yesterday afternoon, a Kedah MCA man quit the party citing the failure of the MCA to stop UMNO from supporting the tabling of the Hudud bill in Parliament by PAS President Hadi Awang, and UMNO for failing to safeguard the Federal Constitution.
And today, MCA’s President, Liow Tiong Lai said that the tabling of the Hudud bill transgress the limits and is against the spirit of the Federal Constitution.
“Spirit of the Federal Constitution”
Big words coming from the two gentlemen who have no inkling whatsoever of the meaning of those terms.
Firstly, the Federal Constitution through Article 3 explicitly states that Islam is the religion of the Federation. Article 11(1) guarantees those other than Muslims the freedom to practice their religion. That still holds true to this day although many non-Malays do unconstitutional acts such as the propagating of other religions to the Muslims (in contravention of Article 11(4).
Let us go back to the year 2014 when PAS was in the heart of all DAP supporters:
proposed to table specifically a Hudud bill in Selangor. Now I want you to remember the words in BOLD above.
“The DAP speaker in Selangor also welcomes the tabling of Hudud in Selangor.”
They must be kidding, right? Karpal Singh would not have allowed this to happen (although his son never objected to this). Let us see what were said by both Anthony “Olok-Olok” Loke and Hannah “The Lamb Chop” Yeoh:
Now what have we here? Two DAP stalwarts support the tabling of the Hudud back in 2014. One even went to town telling people not to be afraid of Hudud, explaining what are involved and why people shouldn’t be afraid. This is what MCA should be doing.
Of course that was then and this is now.
Alas! MCA is NOT in the position to do so. You only see a handful of MCA people actually still fighting the real fight, like Tan Khai Beng, Lee Beng Seng, Ang Chor Keong, while the rest have mostly blended in with the Chinese supporters of the DAP as not to be left out, and the following is why:
MCA could only garner less than 900,000 votes (including votes of the non-Chinese)!
Both Leong Yong Kong and Liow Tiong Lai probably suffer from this:
The bill that is being tabled by Hadi Awang is actually to seek amendment to the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, 1965. Remember nine paragraphs ago I asked you to remember the words in BOLD? The difference here is that this bill proposed by Hadi is NOT a Hudud bill, but one that seeks the enhancement of punishment for only a certain number of offences. This is to allow the Kelantan state government to apply such amendments in Kelantan.
And true to the spirit of the Federal Constitution, the proposals that went beyond the limits of the ones set by the laws made and passed under the Federal Constitution have been shot down even before the tabling of this bill!
And what did Najib say about this yesterday?
Even if this bill gets passed in Parliament it still needs the consent of the Rulers Council as well as the respective state religious authority to agree before it can be passed. And none affects the non-Muslims.
Where, oh Liow and Leong, is the transgression of the spirit of the Federal Constitution may I ask?
Next time do seek clarification before you start chewing on your foot, or use the stop-and-start method to prevent similar political premature ejaculation.

When the Save Malaysia declaration was announced on 4th March 2016, the intention was to garner the support of 100,000 Malaysians. It hardly gained any traction. Then the organisers, in an apparent battle for perception, announced that they would go for a million signatures instead.
The funny thing is, in the 69 days of collecting signatures of those who want Najib Razak to step down, they only managed to garner the support of 500,000 people. That translates into 7,246 signatures per day. This was announced by Kamaruddin Jaafar who himself admitted that the petition had missed its deadline. When asked if it would be presented to the Rulers Institution, he equivocated.
So who is lying?
You can get 50 million people to sign if you want but it means shit constitutionally. The Yang DiPertuan Agong does not have the power to dismiss the Prime Minister. His Majesty can only appoint a member of Parliament whom His Majesty thinks has the most support in the August House. The only ways to dismiss the Prime Minister through democratic means are for him to lose the election, or for him to lose the support of the Barisan Nasional MPs.
Mahathir knows this hence his drive to oust Najib is a mere drama he’s known to play time and time again. But do his delirious and delusional young apprentices know? Maybe they do, maybe they don’t.
- The two deceivers were crying because they knew they were lying to the old man, and,
- The old man is crying just to put on a show to deceive his fellow deceivers into thinking that a change of government could soon happen using the 1.2 million signatures.
These crocodile tears shed by Mahathir and his cohorts are nothing new. They are seasoned politicians.
So, don’t be fooled by these actors. They use crocodile tears to rile up the sentiments of the public and feed us with blatant lies and take us on a delusional path, constantly recycling old issues even though they have been addressed.
Just save your soul from these rancorous beings.

PRESS STATEMENT FROM SUPP
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
9 May 2016
I am sad to read that there is a sizable number of people on social media who cannot accept the recently concluded Sarawak elections result have resorted to insulting and mocking Sarawakians.
Many of these insults including “jungle people”, “living on tree tops with no internet access”, “poor people easily bought with money: “idiots” and “stupid” have crossed the line.
It is also regrettable that many of these insults are of a race and religion nature.
The elections are over and Sarawakians have made our choice. This is democracy at work. Please respect democracy and accept the result of our own choosing.
Sarawakians did not insult anyone when the opposition won Selangor and Penang. No one should insult us either.
We reject politics of hate and insults.
If you respect us, we will respect you back.
Adam Yii. (俞小珊)
SUPP Central Publicity and Information Secretary. (砂人聯党中央宣教秘书)

It seems that after the state elections, this woman wants to fuck you for free. Of course that is if you have the desire to fuck her too after seeing this pic:
She posted her offer to fuck you after you made your choice of whom to administer the state government of Sarawak. She said, you can use the $30 that she said you received from Barisan Nasional to fuck her.
You can go to her Facebook page and fuck her and her friends in the comments section too if you so desire.
Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya seketika tadi mengumumkan kemenangan dua pertiga majoriti Barisan Nasional di Sarawak – suatu kemenangan yang lebih besar berbanding pilihanraya negeri Sarawak lima tahun yang lalu.
Eloklah saya memperingatkan para pengundi di Sarawak bagaimana anda dihina para penyokong Pakatan Rakyat ketika itu dengan kata-kata kesat kerana memberi kepercayaan sekali lagi kepada Barisan Nasional.
Tiba 2016, Pakatan Harapan kembali memberi janji manis serta menunjukkan sikap berbudi bicara dan hormat kepada para pengundi negeri Sarawak dengan harapan dapat menyingkirkan kerajaan Barisan Nasional pimpinan Adenan Satem.
Malang bagi mereka, kemenangan yang lebih besar diberikan kepada BN kali ini dan DAP kehilangan setengah kerusi yang disandangi pada PRN-10.
Marah dengan keadaan itu, para penyokong DAP dan PKR kembali mengeluarkan kata-kata kesat kepada orang-orang Sarawak. Nampaknya mereka tidak akan berubah pendapat terhadap orang-orang Sarawak.
Sila kongsikan posting ini dengan rakan-rakan anda di seluruh negeri Sarawak dan amatlah diharap agar pengajaran biadap yang diberikan oleh para penyokong Pakatan Harapan ini tidak dilupakan langsung oleh para pengundi negeri Sarawak dan dipelajari oleh negeri-negeri lain juga:

The Barisan Nasional lost one Member of Parliament, Datuk Noriah Kasnon, and possibly another, in a helicopter accident on Thursday evening. Every time Malaysia loses an aircraft, ugly cretins especially from the Peninsular rear their head on social media. Let us see this as an example:
Any normal and decent human being would not wish for the death of others. Even animals know how to mourn the dead . Yet so-called human beings have no feelings whatsoever; not even sensitive towards the feelings of the family members of the deceased.
And we know where they are from:
