Let the DAP-PKR-PAS State Governments Rule in peace!

I am referring to the protest by UMNO Penang members and supporters who took to the streets around the Penang State Government offices in the Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak Tower @ KOMTAR yesterday.

The Barisan Nasional should be mature and professional in allowing the elected DAP-PKR-PAS State Governments of Penang, Kedah, Kelantan, Perak and Selangor settle down in their roles as the legitimate authorities and get to rule in peace.

I know that it must be pretty hard to realize that after 50 years of getting to call the shots as they pleased and let free to bulldoze their way through the hearts and minds of the Malaysian people, the BN are no longer the ruling governments of the 5 states?

I do hope that the BN will accept the people's decisions and be gracious enough to accord the respect and goodwill expected of gentlemen politicians; that is if they behave as such or are capable to be so?

Political power here on earth is just temporary and the BN should after all these years have learned some sense of how to behave and conduct themselves in the political battles, either when winning or losing with grace and conduct themselves as seasoned politicians?

It is unbecoming of the BN who after being in power for 50 years still to not have learned how to behave in a manner that the world can appreciate?

If this is the way that they behave after losing the general elections then something is really wrong with the way they go about engaging in politics?

What is the point of calling themselves as the defenders of the Malays if they behave so unlike the norms of the noble Malay gentlemen of old?

Malays are known as cultured people but the way the UMNO leaders and their minions go about spewing invectives against their political opponents after being defeated in the polls only betrays their failure to live up to the standards of the traditional Malays of the glorious past?

Learn from this episode and spring clean the BN from injustice and foul play. Who knows if the people of tomorrow might want to give you another chance?

Yet judging from the grassroots reactions of the now politically awakened Malaysian public, I have my doubts as to whether there might even be a remote chance of such a thing ever happening?

You know why?

History records the arrogance and highhandedness of the BN politicians over the years and the way the BN Cabinet ministers insulted the Malaysian public by way of their choice of words, mannerisms and outright denial of the average Malaysian to state his or her viewpoints to the ones who lorded over the nation all these while?

50 years of the BN's political oppression is not something that can be easily forgotten by anyone who has even an iota of self respect and realization of one's own rights to be respected and accorded the freedom and space to live and be as a rightful citizen of a democratic country?

I can only express my innermost feelings as I can as a human being, as a fellow Malaysian citizen who over the years have been crying in my heart looking at my fellow citizens be sidelined, be ostracized for the color of their skin, be discriminated because they go and worship a deity that is not Almighty Allah but yet have not been shown the truth of Islam for what it truly and really is?

The UMNO leadership have let the majority of the Malays to indulge and enjoy accusing the Non Malay and Non Muslims with a blanket condemnation of them being Kaffir's but who are the very ones who have failed in carrying out the Message of the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalatu Wassallam and have not complied with the most important Standing Order of Almighty Allah in His Final Testament the Holy Al-Qur'an Al Kareem as laid out in Surah An Nahl Chapter 16 Verse 125:








125. OdAAu ila sabeeli rabbika bialhikmati waalmawAAithati alhasanati wajadilhum biallatee hiya ahsanu inna rabbaka huwa aAAlamu biman dalla AAan sabeelihi wahuwa aAAlamu bialmuhtadeena

125. Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.

Where does Islam teach us to differentiate between human beings based upon skin color and social standings?

I am so frustrated to see in my country a situation where Islam is being misconstrued to be as what the Malays of UMNO believe it to be and sort of made to be an exclusivity of the Malay ethnicity alone?

Islam must be liberated from the narrow definitions of the UMNO leadership and actually be put to practice in its totality by the BN leaders if they want to be ever accepted by the people of Malaysia?

Right now, all I see is a bunch of sore losers who just have failed to being righteous in political leadership when they were in power and are utterly frustrated to know that their reign of terror over us is finally over and in the next GE, the BN Federal Government is next to go?

To the BN leaders I ask that they accept the reality of the results of the people's choices and learn to conduct themselves in a manner that is always expected of politicians who want to be remembered as dignified statesmen.

Failure to do so will see you be condemned to eternity by the rest of mankind for being among those who do not know when to call it a day and to retire gracefully with dignity.

Remember that with today's advancements in the field of science and technology, each and every deed or misdeed of us are being recorded and distributed to the whole wide world within split seconds?

Gone are the days when you can get away with pulling a fast one upon the public. Today, the time has come for a new Malaysia.

A Malaysia that will be a place for all its citizens to live in peace and prosperity in the truest sense of the word and not just a place where 'Hidup Melayu' is the only battlecry of the obviously discriminating former absolute rulers of this multi-ethnic, multi-faithed, multi-culturally populated country of 26 million over people?

If only the Malays are to live, then what about the rest of the population?

Are UMNO leaders implying that the rest of the Malaysian public comprising of the Non Malays and Non Muslims to go and die?

Is that what is truly behind your cause?

As Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is my witness, speaking on behalf of all sane and rational Muslims of Malaysia, I promise you that you would have to cross our dead bodies before that ever happens!

Wallahi Wa Billahi!

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala commands us to protect our fellow Children of Adam Alaihis Salam with all that we have and by Allah, those of us who are Muslims in the true sense will do what we have to do to stop your obviously unIslamic tendencies to discriminate against our fellow Malaysians!

Hidup Rakyat Malaysia! Allahu Akbar!
