Zaman Umno Keturunan dan Perjuangan Sudah Berlalu


A Kadir Jasin


MOHON keizinan membuat satu lagi catatan peribadi yang sedikit sebanyak mencerminkan pergolakan politik tanah air kita dan pilihan yang wajib kita lakukan demi kelangsungan (survival) Malaysia.

[PERINGATAN: Komen guna “Anonymous” tidak akan disiarkan. Sila guna Google Account atau Name/URL. Boleh pakai nama samaran.]

Hari ini, 29 Jun 2016 genaplah setahun saya menarik diri secara rasmi daripada Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu (Pekembar) atau nama Inggerisnya United Malays National Organisation (Umno).


Saya keluar hampir setahun lebih awal daripada bekas Presiden Umno, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yang menarik diri pada awal Mac lalu dan pembuangan bekas Timbalan Presiden Umno, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin pada 24 Jun.

Saya menjadi ahli berkartu (card-carrying member) Umno lebih tiga dekad. Saya lahir dan membesar dalam keluarga Umno. Arwah ayah saya menyertai Umno sejak penubuhannya pada tahun 1946 dan pernah menjadi ahli jawatankuasa bahagian.

Umno bukan Umno saya lagi
Tetapi menjelang pertengahan tahun lepas, saya berasa amat yakin dengan kata-kata ayah saya sebelum dia meninggal dunia tujuh tahun lalu. Katanya: “Umno hari ini bukan Umno aku lagi.”

Tidak berapa lama sebelum dia meninggal, dia juga memberhentikan langganan Utusan Malaysia. Utusan Melayu (jawi) dan kemudiannya Utusan Malaysia adalah bacaan wajib keluarga kami.

Alasan pemberhentian langganan Utusan Malaysia adalah ia “bukan surat khabar aku lagi.” Dia membaca Berita Harian sebagai pilihan kedua hanyalah ketika saya menjadi pengarangnya.

Kopi, rokok dan Utusan Melayu/Utusan Malaysia adalah permulaan harinya untuk berpuluh tahun lamanya. Dia berhenti merokok dan membaca Utusan, tetapi terus meminum kopi. Dia juga tidak keluar Umno secara rasmi seperti saya.

Melayu dan Umno

Ramai orang Melayu menjadi ahli Umno kerana talian sejarah. Bagi mereka Umno adalah parti keturunan. Merekalah ahli sebenar (tulen/original) Umno.

Mereka menjadi ahli kerana altruisme. Mereka tidak mengharapkan sesuatu daripadanya. Bagi mereka, Umno adalah parti merdeka, parti pembela bangsa dan parti yang membawa pembangunan.

Hari ini, ramai ahli Umno adalah ahli rekrut. Ahli yang diheret masuk hinggakan ada yang tidak tahu pun yang mereka ahli Umno. Nama mereka didaftarkan oleh Ketua Cawangan dan yuran dibayar bagi pihak mereka.

Bilangan ahli keturunan semakin hari semakin kecil. Secara literal, Umno mati bersama kematian mereka. Boleh kata semua pendukung Umno dari generasi ayah saya sudah tidak ada lagi.

Ayah saya mewajibkan anak-anaknya balik mengundi menggunakan “petua” (“fatwa”) derhaka kalau tidak balik mengundi. Tapi pada Pilihan Raya Umum 2008, dia tidak mengeluarkan lagi petua itu.

Adik saya yang tugasnya membawa ibu dan ayah saya mengundi memberitahu mereka tidak keluar mengundi pada pilihan raya Umum 2013.

Sejak beberapa hari lalu, berikutan pembuangan Muhyiddin dan Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, ramai bertanya pendapat saya mengenai kalau mereka juga perlu keluar Umno.

Saya kata, saya mungkin bukan orang paling sesuai menjawabnya kerana saya tidak berkecuali. Saya tidak berkecuali kerana saya telah mendahului mereka keluar Umno. Sentimen saya diwarnai oleh tindakan itu.

Biar Najib Tahu

Cuma saya kata, kalau hendak keluar eloklah buat secara rasmi macam saya buat supaya Presiden Umno, Datuk Seri Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone, Mohd Najib Abdul Razak, tahu.

Biar Mohd Najib tahu kita keluar Umno. Dia tak peduli tak apa.
Saya mengutus surat penarikan diri kepada Ketua Cawangan saya dengan salinan kepada Ketua Bahagian dan Setiausaha Kerja Umno Malaysia.

Saya nyatakan sebab-sebab saya tarik diri. Antaranya saya tidak dapat lagi menerima kepemimpinan Umno yang dikepalai Mohd Najib dan kalau saya kekal pun, saya akan menjadi duri dalam daging dengan kritikan-kritikan saya.

Dalam kes saya, Setiausaha Kerja Umno pusat, Datuk Rauf Yusoh mengesahkan penarikan diri saya dan mengucapkan terima kasih atas sumbangan saya kepada parti selama ini.

Saya kata lagi, mereka (Muhyiddin dan Mukhriz) boleh kembali semula ke pangkuan Umno jika keadaan berubah mengikut apa yang mereka idamkan.

Buat saat ini, apa yang boleh saya katakan adalah amat menyedihkan bahawa Umno yang berjaya memperbaiki kehidupan generasi ayah saya dan mengangkat generasi saya menjadi warga kelas menengah kini tidak lagi mampu menjamin kehidupan generasi anak dan cucu saya. 

Bagi saya, era Umno sudah berlalu. Begitu juga PAS. Cara Umno dan PAS mengepung dan mengandangkan orang Melayu-Islam dengan menggembar-gemburkan sentimen bangsa dan agama tidak boleh diterima lagi.

Jika diteruskan ia akan mengepung orang Melayu-Islam dalam penjara minda yang semakin hari semakin sempit, mundur, jumud, tidak bertoleransi dan anti-kemajuan.

Kita perlu tabur angin perubahan supaya kita boleh melayari ombak perubahan.

Wallahuaklam.

Umno Najib Buang Muhyiddin, Mukhriz

A Kadir Jasin



KEDIKTATORAN dan penafian demokrasi oleh Umno Mohd Najib Abdul Razak mencapai kemuncak hari ini apabila ia membuang Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yasin  dan Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir.

[PERINGATAN: Komen guna “Anonymous” tidak akan disiarkan. Sila guna Google Account atau Name/URL. Boleh pakai nama samaran.]

Muhyiddin dan Mukhriz dibuang kerana didakwa melanggar disiplin parti. Muhyiddin adalah Timbalan Presiden manakala Mukhriz adalah ahli Majlis Tertinggi.

[Teruskan perjuangan rakyat. Tandatangani Deklarasi Rakyat buang Najib di sini.]

Naib Presiden Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal digantung keahlian sehingga Lembaga Disiplin membuat perakuan muktamad atas dakwaan yang sama.


Keputusan dibuat oleh MT dalam mesyuarat petang ini dengan dipengerusikan oleh Datuk Seri Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone di Ibu Pejabat Umno.

Hal ini dimaklumkan kepada media oleh Mohd Najib selepas mesyuarat itu.

Dia turut mengumumkan yang peruntukan kerajaan kepada Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana ditarik balik serta-merta dan semua kakitangannya akan diberikan notis berhenti kerja.

Katanya, keputusan itu dibuat berikutan yayasan itu mempunyai usaha untuk menjatuhkan Perdana Menteri dan kerajaan yang sah.

Wallahuaklam.

Is There A Move to Discriminate Zahid?


A Kadir Jasin

JUDGING by the roil in the cyberspace, the Barisan Nasional’s victory in Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar on June 18 does not appear to calm the nerves of the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone), Mohd Najib Abdul Razak.

[REMINDER: No anonymous comments will be published.  Please use Google Account, OpenID or Name/URL. Pseudonym is accepted. Be respectful. No swearing. Thank you.]


Pro-Najib’s bloggers at home and abroad had revved up campaign that former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, wants to replace (Tan Sri) Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin with (Datuk Seri) Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in a proxy war with Mohd Najib.

By way of explanation, there are two types of pro-Najib bloggers - ones who are paid by Najib’s outfit and those who are not paid but are on his side.

During the by-elections, they trained their guns at Muhyiddin with allegations of infidelity. That probably was meant to stop Muhyiddin from campaigning or to blunt his assault. In any case, Muhyiddin did not campaign openly against the BN.

The Mahathir-Ahmad Zahid narrative could not have surfaced so soon after the latter led the BN to victory in the parliamentary by-elections if it was not been orchestrated by Mohd Najib’s inner circles who handle bloggers and editors of the mainstream media.

Ahmad Zahid, by the virtue of his position as Deputy Prime Minister, was the BN director of operation for the by-elections. He did well for the party but had also taken the advantage to promote himself.

Zahid upstaged Najib in the by-elections
Banners and social media postings bearing his name and pictures outnumbered Mohd Najib’s. There appeared to be a taboo against displaying Mohd Najib’s pictures in the two places.

Now that the by-elections had been fought and won, Mohd Najib can start fiddling with his next task – reshuffling the cabinet.

It is in this respect that the Mahathir-Zahid blog postings come handy. They provide justification for Mohd Najib to act against his new deputy.

Since the sacking of Muhyiddin as DPM in July last year, Ahmad Zahid had emerged as the strongest and the most popular Umno leader with the potential of challenging and replacing Mohd Najib at some future time.

Some say he is genuinely more popular than Mohd Najib. This has not escaped the attention of Mohd Najib’s inner circles that do not really favour Ahmad Zahid because they fear that he might not play ball with them.

Their choice is Mohd Najib’s cousin and Defence Minister, (Datuk Seri) Hishammuddin Hussein. He is weaker and can, therefore, be more easily manipulated.

So they started sowing the seed of discontent and distrust against Ahmad Zahid by letting out bits and pieces of negative news about him including questioning his English language fluency, his past association with (Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim and, more recently, his “secret” meeting with Dr Mahathir.

Ahmad Zahid may still be genuinely loyal to Mohd Najib but if ever the crunch comes, a loyal deputy is less reliable than a blood relative.

So the talks that Hishammuddin would be “promoted” and Ahmad Zahid “demoted” in the coming cabinet reshuffle make sense.

Crystal-balling the Reshuffle

For a wider look at the exercise, let me publish an article by the same member of the Kedai Kopi Assembly (KKA) whose two commentaries were recently published here. He wrote:

“THERE are two vacancies in the cabinet; one, Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities, as the holder (Douglas Uggah Embas) stood for state elections in Sarawak recently and was appointed deputy chief minister replacing, Alfred Jabu, the long serving DCM representing the Dayaks.

The other is Minister in the PM Department responsible for the Economic Planning Unit (EPU), Abdul Wahid Omar. He refused to continue to serve. 

The rumours are two “mamaks” will join the cabinet because  Najib is more comfortable with people of Indian heritage.

It is speculated that Shahrizat Jalil or Kak Ijat to her fans, would get back her old portfolio as her husband (Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail) had been acquitted of the NFC scandal involving RM240 million of which Kak Ijat said she knew nothing about as she never talked to husband about it although they stay in the same house and, presumably, share the same bed.

The new Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali used his discretion to discontinue the case after receiving a letter from defense council, Shafie Abdullah. Apandi told the DPP to stop case and agreed with defense counsel that the accused be acquitted after defense counsel spoke to AG.

The former AG, Abdul Ghani Patael decided to prosecute the accused and the court ruled that the case must go on. The new AG overruled that decision after receiving Shafie’s letter to him. 

In the “bolehland” of Najib and the AG, all appears to be “boleh” (possible).  So there is no reason now not to bring back Kak Ijat as all about her family’s business is “clean” now.

During her absence from the cabinet, their son applied for scholarship to go to Harvard Kennedy School and another “mamak” at the Khazanah approved it because Kak Ijat was said to have written a letter in support of the application.

Maybe the “mamak” at the Khazanah thought Kak Ijat was poor although she is an adviser to PM and enjoys the same salary as when she was minister.  So the son and his wife went to America with rakyat’s money. We all know it is easier to get admission for masters than for 1st degree.

The Indian Muslim Factor

I have nothing against the “mamaks”. From time immemorial, the Indians and later the “DKKs”, have always have strong influence on the Malay Sultanates, the British Administration and later the Merdeka era.

Also references to ethnicity and “asal keturunan” should not be considered offensive since the PM himself declared that he is a Bugis and DPM a Javanese.

Let us face fact. Under Najib, “Mamakputra” with the high-powered “mamak connections” enjoy better privileges than “Umnoputras”. Why should the Malays and the Bumiputras be angry? Mamaks in UMNO are more Malay than Malays. First Lady’s advisors and key officers are also “mamaks”.

Present Chairman of Tabung Haji (Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim) is a “mamak” and is a very successful salesman for second hand cars. He was so good that he could convince the board of TH to subscribe to 1MDB bonds and later bought land at TRX to help out 1MDB.

And when the land purchase was criticised, he said he had a ready buyer and TH would make RM5 million in profit. Now we all know that it was all salesman’s talk. The purchaser never appeared. He forgot that to make an RM5-million profit, he must sell higher than purchase price plus RM5 million and more as TH has to pay RPTG and other expenses.

With time, people forget his promise and now we are told that the PM might bring him into the cabinet and maybe take Wahid’s place as he has been a successful businessman so can advise PM on the economy, which is now in a mess.

By appointing two ministers from the Peninsula, Sarawak will lose one cabinet seat unless PM enlarges the cabinet but it’s OK as, according to PM, in the recent state elections they supported him and 1MDB has nothing to with them. Only the Peninsula people have to pay 1MDB debts. So much for the Sarawakians supporting the PM during the state election. Hope people in Sarawak and Sabah will learn.

Rumours also say the PM will give up Finance Ministry and pass to his cousin, Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.  He wants his cousin to clear 1MDB mess and give more power to him politically. The DPM, Ahmad Zahid may be sent to Education and Najib takes over the Home Ministry.

Remember before he was sacked from the cabinet, Muhyiddin Yassin was at Education when he was DPM. It seems that those the PM does not trust would be sent to Education. PM takes over Home Affairs so nobody will arrest him. Defense is vacant. Shafie Apdal was once Najib’s deputy in the ministry.

Will the Zahid be happy if he is relieved of the powerful Home Affairs?  There is nothing he can do.  He was told to keep quiet. If he does not keep quiet, he won’t be PM. He is actually in a precarious situation. Muhyiddin is Deputy President of UMNO with no powers but will take over from Najib as President with serious implications for Zahid.”

Wallahuaklam.

Cash is King In Sg Besar and K. Kangsar


A Kadir Jasin

THANK you debaters for discussing the outcomes of the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar parliamentary by-elections without waiting for my prompting.
 
REMINDER: No anonymous comments will be published.  Please use Google Account, OpenID or Name/URL. Pseudonym is accepted. Be respectful. No swearing. Thank you.]


The results did not come as a surprise to me because as I had said in the May 24 posting that the Bugis warrior who is known for his "cash is King" strategy would succeed in retaining both seats.

I had also elude to the fact that in the 2014 by-election in Teluk Intan the Barisan Nasional's carpet bombing had led to the ouster of the incumbent DAP. The BN has always had the upper hand in a by-election.

Also I should be the last to be surprised by the difficulty of changing the mindset of the voters away from the Umno/BN hegemony.

The burden of responsibility is mine too. For nearly four decades I inculcated in the minds of the Malays that Umno is their protector and the BN is the best party to rule.

What surprised me is that despite the revelation of the wrongdoings of the Prime Minister, (Datuk Seri Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone), Mohd Najib Abdul Razak, with the collusion of the BN, the people still gave their votes to him and his party.

Sadly, their decision would only embolden him not only to continue defending his wrongdoings but to commit new ones if he so wishes.

But the blame is not on Mohd Najib and his cahoots alone. Those who voted for the BN must also feel ashamed that they had allowed his handouts and promises to influence them. They literally sold their votes for pittance.

Apart from "cash is king" there are other reasons for the BN's victory. Among them are:

1.There is the pervasive climate of fear. There were still many Malays who feared that if they did not vote for the BN they would be penalised. These are people who directly depend on the government like civil servants, policemen and soldiers, and those whose children are enjoying scholarships or are hoping for one, or who are waiting for government jobs.

2. The racial card played by BN by demonising that DAP and the Chinese, and whoever working with them. Unfortunately for Pakatan Harapan (PH), some Chinese had played a trick on them. Many who voted for the opposition during the 2013 General Election changed side on June 18.

There is a reason for this. With the pouring of cash and the promise of development projects, the Chinese, being traders and businessmen, would stand to gain. The Malays would spend the cash at Chinese shops and the Malay contractors would cede their contracts to the Chinese tauke.

3. The splitting of votes between PH and PAS gave the BN the boost. Had there been no vote splitting, the BN could have been defeated or at least not winning so handsomely.

4. Umno and the BN are not strong but the opposition due to the inter- and intra-party rivalries had literally shot themselves in both feet.

5. Hopefully things would not be the same at the General Election. The BN resources would be dispersed and the peer pressure among voters would be stronger. But the opposition must be prepared to be more united.

6. The stumbling block is PAS. Mohd Najib had succeeded in turning PAS into its mercenary soldiers. They are doing the fighting for him.

The Togo Syndrome

If we still fail at the coming General Election to make the changes, we must be prepared to suffer the Togo syndrome and run the risk of moving even closer to becoming failed state.

Togo in West Africa is the most unhappy country in the world, according to the annual World Happiness index produced by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), an initiative under the United Nations. It is also one of the poorest in the world.

But in less than three after the report was released, its president, Faure Gnassingbe, was overwhelmingly elected for the third term.

His family has been in power since 1967, when his father Gnassingbe Eyadema led a successful military coup d’etat. At the time of his death in 2005, Gnassingbé was the longest-serving leader in modern African history, after having been president for 38 years.

Wallahuaklam.

Skandal 1MDB Menang Anugarah


A Kadir Jasin


BERITA dari Hong Kong semalam kata, surat khabar Wall Street Journal (WSJ) dan pengarang ekonominya bagi edisi Asia, Tom Wright, dapat anugerah 2016 Pertubuhan Penerbit Asia (Sopa) kerana mendedahkan skandal 1MDB.

[PERINGATAN: Komen guna “Anonymous” tidak akan disiarkan. Sila guna Google Account atau Name/URL. Boleh pakai nama samaran.]

Wright turut diisytiharkan sebagai “Editor of the Year”.

Sebelum ini, WSJ dipilih sebagai peserta terakhir kategori Laporan Antarabangsa anugerah Pulitzer Prize di Amerika Syarikat kerana pendedahannya mengenai skandal yang sama.

Tom Wright fasih bahasa Melayu
[Teruskan perjuangan rakyat. Tandatangani Deklarasi Rakyat buang Najib di sini.]

Laporan dari Kuala Lumpur pada 5 Julai tahun lepas kata, Perdana Menteri, (Datuk Seri Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone), Mohd Najib Abdul Razak akan fail saman ka atas WSJ pada hari Selasa berhubung laporan yang kaitkan beliau dengan kes seleweng RM2.6 bilion duit 1MDB.

Dekat 52 Selasa dah datang dan pergi. Tom Wright dan WSJ dah menang anugerah tapi Mohd Najib tak saman-saman juga.

Siasat punya siasat, rupa-rupanya bukan undang-undang negara, Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Peguam Negara dan ahli PAC saja Mohd Najib tukar tapi takwim pun dia tukar.

Takwim dia, bukan takwim kita. Masalahnya takwim dia dengan takwim kita sekarang dah tak sama.

Takwim kita ada tujuh hari dalam seminggu iaitu Isnin, Selasa, Rabu, Khamis, Jumaat, Sabtu dan Ahad.

Takwim dia, yang juga dipakai oleh pemakan-pemakan dedaknya, kurang satu hari. Ada enam hari saja iaitu Isnin, Rabu, Khamis, Jumaat, Sabtu dan Ahad. Selasa tak ada.

Sebab itulah sampai hari ni dia dan peguam dia tak saman WSJ.

“Minta maaf la no, tok mo lawak sikit. La ni kena buat peran bagi oghang gelak pasai ghamai sangat stress. Jangan dok stress sangat no takut sat ni kena serang jantung!”

Meminjam pakai gaya bahasa Allah yarhamha Pendeta Negara (Tan Sri) Ismail Hussein, atas nota yang lebih serius saya ingin menggarisbawahkan bahawasanya kemenangan Tom Wright dan WSJ ini adalah penghinaan – affront - kepada Perdana Menteri, para peguam serta mereka yang komited kepadanya.

Saya sedang tunggu kenyataan Perdana Menteri yang kata, dia tidak campur tangan dalam pemilihan Tom Wright dan WSJ sebagai pemenang anugerah SOPA.

Mari ketawa. Ketawa belum kena GST
Ketawa adalah ubat tanpa GST yang mujarab.

Takkanlah cerita mudah macam ini pun pengundi Kuale dan Sungai Besar tak faham kot?

Mustahil.

Wallahuaklam.

Kerana 1MDB Kita Kena Saman di London


A Kadir Jasin


MAPPADULUNG sudah tidak boleh bohong. Temberang dia makin hari makin terang.

[PERINGATAN: Komen guna “Anonymous” tidak akan disiarkan. Sila guna Google Account atau Name/URL. Boleh pakai nama samaran.]

Temberang Nujum Pak Belalang sudah tak laku. Satu dunia sudah tahu dan hari ini timbul lagi satu.


Pak Arab dah mengamuk.

Berita dari London,  tempat kegemaran Mohd Najib. Katanya, dia ada mansion (rumah mewah) di situ.

International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) dan anak syarikatnya, Aabar Investments PJS (Aabar), telah buat permintaan timbang tara kepada Mahkamah Timbangtara Antarabangsa London tuntut AS$6.5 bilion (RM26 bilion) daripada 1MDB dan kerajaan Malaysia menerusi Kementerian Kewangan Diperbadankan (MOF).

"RFA prihatin terhadap kegagalan 1MDB dan MOF untuk menjalankan obligasi kontrak di bawah Lembaran Terma Terikat (BTS) seperti yang dinyatakan dalam pengumuman IPIC GMTN Limited pada 10 Jun 015 (RNS Nombor 7064P)," kata IPIC dalam kenyataan yang dihantar kepada Bursa Saham London, hari ini. Baca lengkap di sini.

Menteri Kewangan Diperbadankan disaman di sini
Jelas Perdana Menteri, (Datuk Seri Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone), Mohd Najib Abdul Razak tipu. Dia kata, 1MDB tak akan jejas negara.

Nah sekarang Kementerian Kewangan yang dia jadi bos dah kena saman di Mahkamah Timbangtara Antarabangsa London. Beban siapa tanggung? Kita rakyat jelata lah.

IPIC menyatakan bahawa kegagalan 1MDB dan MOF dalam menjalankan tanggungjawab mereka, melangsaikan tunggakan atau mengemukakan cadangan yang boleh diterima telah menyebabkan IPIC tiada pilihan alternatif selain meneruskan tuntutan berjumlah AS$6.5 bilion menerusi timbang tara.

"Tuntutan itu akan ditentukan oleh tribunal timbang tara yang akan terdiri daripada tiga orang penimbangtara menurut Lembaran Terma Terikat dan peraturan-peraturan LCIA ," kata IPIC dalam kenyataan itu.

Apa lagi tipu-helah Mohd Najib dan pemakan-pemakan dedak dia nak kata?

Tolonglah, jangan terus perbodoh pengundi Sungai Besar dan Kuala Kangsar, khususnya, dan rakyat jelata dengan cerita dongeng kononnya Mohd Najib pakar urus ekonomi yang dahulukan rakyat.

Bukan semua rakyat jahil dan boleh disuapkan dedak.

Wallahuaklam.
