Walk for Justice by Malaysian Bar Council Pt.4

We were nearing the JPM's Complex after facing occasional hiccups in the form of the PDRM's top brass who tried to stop the lawyers from marching on but being lawyers who know their legal rights and what they can and cannot do, simply brushed aside the stumbling blocks and pushed forward.

Such steadfastness of purpose on the part of our Malaysian Bar Council members made me feel proud to walk with them.

I used to think that the Malaysian Bar Council were just capable of arguing their cases in court but to see them, coming together for the sake of our nation's judicial integrity and ready to march in the hot blazing midday sun fully suited up as they usually are in the legal arenas of our justice system, just made me feel so charged up to get to march with our black & whites!

Rocky Bru had asked for us bloggers who are supporters of the march to come in the same colors as our legal eagles but I felt that it would not be right to have someone mistake me for a lawyer as well which I am unfortunately not!

I would love to be a true bona fide lawyer and fight for justice for all Malaysians, regardless of creed or color.

I chose instead to come as myself. Zainol Abideen @ MAHAGURU58, a Muslim Malaysian Blogger and President of the Muslim Bloggers Alliance Protem Committee.

The protesting lawyers were all fired up and now and then we heard slogans being shouted through the loud hailers and the marchers promptly responded with their loud voices asking for justice to be done!

Putrajaya was reverbrating with our voices and we marched on determined to reach our goal- the PM's Office Complex.

Every now and then, the loud unamplified booming voice of Keadilan's Gobalakrishnan would be heard shouting non stop his battlecry, driving the lawyers on and responding to his call.

Finally, we arrived at the roundabout of Dataran Putrajaya, right before the assembled and ready to kick ass, FRU stormtroopers who were armed to the teeth and brandishing M16 submachineguns to face us, the protesters joined with the nation's lawyers spearheaded by the Malaysian Bar Council.

It was quite a sight to see the FRU barricading the entrance to this nation's administrative base in the form of the Prime Minister's Office Complex, a most imposing, magnificent sprawling expanse of the very government institution that calls the shot, here in Malaysia.

This shot showing myself and MENJ, taking pictures of this unique situation in the annals of this nation's history is courtesy of fellow blogger Tony Yew's collection. That's us kneeling in the foreground, trying to get the FRU and the PMO's Complex into focus.

Continued after this.

The photograph showing the FRU barricading the entrance to Putrajaya encapsulates Malaysia is not much different from Burma or any other banana republic. So much for 2020 vision.

It's sad but true, isn't it?

When compared to the way true Way of Governance by the Caliphs of Islam as practiced by such legendary icons of the past such as Khalifah Umar al Khattab, Radhiallahu Anhu, the 2nd Caliph of Islam, these bozos in Putrajaya pale so much by the way the true leaders lived before and how these buffoons have to fortify themselves in their high and mighty castles and barricade their sorry asses with such 'palace guards'!

I remember reading about how a team of Jews who were visiting Madinah looking for an appointment to see the Caliph Umar al Khattab ( May Allah have mercy on him) were astounded to learn from a man in Madinah, the administrative capital of the Muslims, whom they asked as to where is the 'palace of the Khalifah of the Muslims'?

The Muslim pointed out to them a solitary figure lying on a simple rope cot under a date tree, without guards or any signs of pomp and splendour which would normally be what is associated with the kings and emperors of the countries of the world.

Such was the fine example of true humility and humbleness practiced by the true Muslim leaders of yore!

The idiots of today masquerading as the leaders of the Muslims are no where near the standards of true Islamic leadership practiced by the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam and his blessed companions.

Today, the scoundrels barricade themselves behind layers and layers of police and military protection from the very people they are supposed to work for and help!

They will soon face retribution from the Almighty in ways that they never imagined, no matter whether it is here in Putrajaya or Timbuktu!
