A former Chief Minister of Selangor, one of the richest states in Peninsular Malaysia is handed just a years jail sentence for abusing his position as the chief executive officer of the state government then in buying two lots of land and a posh bungalow for just RM3.5million ringgits quite under the market value of RM6.5million!
He had even sent in comments accusing me of making fitnah against him when I blogged about his case here in my blog.
I reiterated to him that as a Muslim blogger I was just doing my duty and wrote my article based upon what Allah the Almighty has revealed to us in the Holy Quran and warned us against misappropriating our fellow mankind's property unjustly as in the Surah Al Baqarah Chapter 2 Verse 188:
In the name of Allah, most Compassionate, Most Merciful
TransliterationWala ta/kuloo amwalakumbaynakum bilbatili watudloo biha ilaalhukkami lita/kuloo fareeqan min amwali annasibil-ithmi waantum taAAlamoon
Sahih InternationalAnd do not consume one another's wealth unjustly or send it [in bribery] to the rulers in order that [they might aid] you [to] consume a portion of the wealth of the people in sin, while you know [it is unlawful].
Well, that's over and done with and there's nothing more we have to grumble about anymore.
But in comparison, I really feel so disgusted because the courts in Kuala Terengganu have sentenced a poor desperate father to a 36 months @ 3 years prison sentence for stealing a tin of milk formula worth RM20 @ USD$5.7 to feed his starving child!!!
Talk about bloody injustice!!!
According to Islamic Law, that poor desperate father would have been assisted by the Baitulmal and let go with just a warning not to steal again and if he had problems getting employment be given help by the ruling caliphate?
But since we are not ruled according to the Islamic Syariah here in Malaysia, we are forced to see such injustice taking place here quite blatantly!
For committing a crime that involves RM3,000,000.00, the wealthy perpetrator is sentenced to jail ~ which he is currently appealing against and for a thief who stole a can of powdered infant formula worth RM20, the poor man is being incarcerated for 3 years!!! As if, the man hasn't suffered enough?
So much for justice here in Bolehland!
Where the hell are all the bloody lawyers out there in our nation?
Where's the Malaysian Bar Council who are always so gungho when it comes to protesting against this and that so called acts of injustice and breaching of human rights?
How come we don't hear of even a squeak from them in defending this poor fellow?
No political mileage to gain from it?
Could be haa?
Aah! Busy demonstrating,huh???
