Ipoh Kasi Mali

Made a short trip to Ipoh today to sort out some work matters. Here are some pics of the town centre. Traffic has increased dramatically in Ipoh and is very different from the time when I used to visit my grandparents during the school holidays back in the 1980s.

Without fail I will always stop by this little stall which serves noodles. Sorry but I don't know the name of the stall or the name of the kopitiam or the name of the noodles. It's the kopitiam next to the old Rex theater. The whole meal costs RM8.50, seems reasonable I think or maybe I got ripped off.

I saw this when I was at the A&W outlet, Petaling Jaya and reported it to SYABAS (Toll Free Line 1-800-88-5252). They said there was a burst pipe somewhere up the road and this may be a 'flushing' exercise (whatever that means). Just seems like an awful waste of water. Damn!

Making a Dung Heap out of a Mole Hill

A group of 100 Malay protesters congregated in front of Masjid al-Ikhlasiah in Kampung Kerinchi here today to protest against a lawyer from MCA who purportedly applied pressure to stop the mosque from using loudspeakers to play the Muslim call to prayer.

The group consisting of members from Muslim welfare group Pekida and Malay rights NGO Perkasa claimed that a “Chinese lawyer” had demanded the mosque stop the “azan” (call to prayer) recital.

The demonstrators also held posters naming the lawyer and displaying what they claim to be his home address in Pantai Hill Park condominium.

At the protest, chairman of Pekida’s Lembah Pantai chapter, Zakaria Awang, demanded that the man be arrested for sedition.

“We want him to be arrested under the Internal Security Act for threatening national harmony or he can change his citizenship to a nationality of his own liking,” he said.

He added that the “lawyer” should also make an open apology to the Muslim community in the country.

The group also distributed copies of a fax purportedly from the man, and said to have been sent to the Prime Minister’s Office asking for the volume of the mosque’s loudspeakers to be lowered.

These are my observations :

1. why are they burning their pillows?

2. there's no specific mention of this bogeyman/MCA lawyer. Who is he? Reminds me of the time in Perak where a mob stormed a church in Perak trying to stop a mass conversion of muslims to christianity. Turned out to be false. And the lying Perak Mufti got away scot-free for nearly plunging the country into some form of nasty extremism.

3. I am quite sure during the Prophet's time, there wasn't a need for loudspeakers. So what's the beef? That's a hadith right there. Like a lot of other hadiths, this one is unauthenticated too.

4. I think it's just UMNO (United Malays National Organisation) trying to galvanise the Malays to prepare for the coming General Elections. Let the siege mentality begin. 'You are either with us or against us'

5. the banners were written in red ink, I suppose it was to denote blood. I see 'peace' written all over it

The Same Bullshit Replayed (And Yes I Think We Are Sliding into Dhimmitude)

Tan Yi Min is now Eilliyah Foong Abdullah. This child is Tan Cheow Hong's daughter. She was born into the Tan family. Her grandfather belonged to the 'Tan' clan, as did her great grandfather and her great, great grandfather. Her mother Fatimah Foong Abdullah has with cold calculation misused Islam to deprive 'Eilliyah Foong Abdullah' of her birthright - the 'Tan' surname.

The Malaysiakini report said Fatimah converted Yi Min on Nov 9 at the Selangor Islamic Affairs Department. She snatched her from school on Nov 8. This time-line indicates that Fatimah converted Yi Min the very next day.

Remember that the child has lived with her father these past three years. She has never been taught Islam and knows next to nothing about the religion. Yet barely 24 hours after being snatched with the help of the police and the Islamic officials, this little girl could miraculously declare - before another different set of Islamic bureaucrats - that she wishes to embrace Islam.

“Bagaimana budak Cina tujuh tahun boleh mengucap dua kalimah syahadah?” This question was the first thing to cross the mind of Sharifuddin Abdul Latiff, administrator of the mediawatch group Hartal MSM.

You try saying this: 'ašhadu an la ilaha illa (A)llah, wa ašhadu anna Muhammada(n) rasulu (A)llah'. Now imagine a traumatised little girl who had just been kidnapped and driven pell-mell from Penang to Selangor reciting the syahadah in a language she'd never spoken a word of before; and doing it twice correctly (a procedural convention) in the presence of intimidating strangers in an alien environment a long distance from home.

When Yi Min ostensibly bore witness as a 'Muslim', she would have had no conception of who the Prophet Muhammad was. Sharifuddin further points out that when the Prophet received his calling, he was a mature man 40 years in age.

It's impossible that an immature child grasped the message of Islam in the matter of a mere 24 hours. How could the officer-in-charge then proceed to stamp approval without first ascertaining that the conditions for conversion were properly fulfilled?

Fatimah Foong holds no 'sijil perkahwinan' (Muslim marriage certificate). Yi Min was not conceived in Muslim wedlock. Yi Min's father was not present to give his consent. This makes the conversion of his daughter, a minor, against civil law.

That Fatimah's mockery of justice was entertained by ketuanan Islam is beyond a dereliction of duty; it is criminal mala fide.

If this sick, shotgun conversion is not immediately voided, Yi Min is doomed to Hotel California - you “can check out but never leave”. Like Banggarma (below), remember her? Like Revathi. Remember her too?
It's high time that Malays here do some deep soul-searching and ask yourselves what kind of saudara baru you're all acquiring in droves.

Parental duty is a shared responsibility. As a Malay man or woman, how would you feel if your estranged Malay spouse was to snatch and decide alone to convert your little boy to Hinduism in a Hindu-predominant country, or to Christianity in a Christian-predominant country?

Landslide at Bukit Gasing (Again)

This is quite a big one for such a small hill. Apparently it is related to extension works on the temple which was started in 2006. Scary as it is there plans to further develop the hill with an upcoming project (Sanctuary Ridge Kuala Lumpur City) comprising 70 bungalows on a 15.5ha site.

Let's hope nothing untoward happens and if it does, let's not blame God and say it's an act of God. We all know it's an act of Greed
