Malaysian politics hits rock bottom -Recalcitrant 101

Assalamualaikum Warahmatulillahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.

My dear fellow Malaysians,

My thoughts for today are centred around the controversial sorry state of affairs concerning the political circus over there in the State of Perak Darul Ridzuan.

For the first time in our fledgling nation's history, we have two state governments locked in limbo, courtesy of turncoat politics which was first enjoined by the Pakatan Rakyat Supremo Anwar bin Ibrahim.

I find it ridiculous that those who advocated the treacherous act of switching alliances of the BN's Members of Parliament are now crying foul when 3 of their own defected to the Barisan camp, pulling the rug of political power from the Pakatan Rakyat held State Government of Perak on the 4th of February, 2009 as reported here.

Isn't it quite ludicrous for the Pakatan Rakyat to be so offended by the leap frog politics of their 3 State Assemblymen and woman to the opposing BN camp when they themselves were so bloody gung ho in going after the BN MP's who had gone on a 'field trip' to Taiwan to try and persuade those BN MP's to turn traitor?

What's honorable by trying to induce such BN MP's to join the Pakatan Rakyat in toppling the current BN Federal Government under PM Abdullah Badawi just to realize Anwar Ibrahim's lifelong mission to be the CEO of Malaysia Incorporated by September the 16th, 2008?

Well, September 16th is dead and gone and further announcements made by the one who was always seen to be so bloody desperate to warm the Numero Uno's seat at Putrajaya is now being whacked by the DAP's Chairman Karpal Singh for being the very cause of the Pakatan Rakyat Perak government's downfall and being asked to step down from being the Opposition Head!

Things aren't exactly being quite rosy for the DAP Chifusan himself for Lim Kit Siang & Son who have bigger interests in capturing the Federal Government of Malaysia have voiced out their continued support for the PKR de facto leader and don't give a shit about Karpal's tantrum!

The DAP Godfathers @ Lim Kit Siang and his son Lim Guan Eng need Anwar as their Pakatan Rakyat figurehead so as to continue garnering support for their mission to takeover the Federal Government at all costs.

Same goes for the scenario over there in Perak.

Sacked PR MB Nizar

Although PAS won the least number of seats there (6) in last year's 12th Malaysian GE, they have no choice but to nominate and appoint PAS Deputy Commisioner of Perak, the now sacked Menteri Besar Muhammad Nizar as their top man for the controversy ridden Pakatan Rakyat State Government of Perak.

The overwhelming DAP Chinese majority EXCO's in the Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Government must have been a bone of contention to the Perak Sultan who begrudgingly had consented to the installation of the PR Perak State Government back then?

So when the defections of the 2 PKR corruption laced State Assemblymen jumped ship together with the lone DAP State Assemblywoman together with the UMNO 'Trojan Horse' Bota State Aseemblyman took place, I believe that the Sultan of Perak must have breathed a very big sigh of relief?

Tuanku Sultan Azlan Shah then promptly sacked the now lack of State Assembly seats majority, Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Government without paying heed to MB Nizar's announcing the dissolution of the Perak State Assembly which the PR MB had made in haste without getting consent of the Perak Sultan as he should have?

As I have stated here, this is all my own conclusions and wish to point out that it is my right to think so as a lawful citizen and registered voter here in Malaysia.

Please don't say that it's not our business to say anything about what is taking place there in Perak for the repercussions of what is taking place there in the controversy ridden state will have its implications upon the rest of the country and eventually in our own life's as well!

We all have a stake here as to what is being decided over there in Perak Darul Ridzuan.

Every voter is involved in politics no matter who or what we are or deemed to be?

As long as our vote is accounted for and has its role in deciding who gets to rule over us, then each and every one of us has a right to speak our mind as to what has and is taking place in this nation's politics no matter which state or constituency we are opinionating about?

We now know that the Sultan of Perak, being the Sovereign Ruler of the State of Perak has decreed that the Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Government is no longer the ruling government of His Majesty's state.

We also know that the Pakatan Rakyat MB refused to step down and is now recalcitrantly remaining in the official residence of the Perak Menteri Besar to which he has no more legal entity to occupy.

We also have learned that the Pakatan Rakyat sacked government no longer have access to the State Secretariat building and that they are now using the official vehicles of the now deposed Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Government illegally.

My question is as to how the hell are they the recalcitrant deposed Pakatan Rakyat EXCO's under Nizar going to come up with the allocations for the projects that they keep announcing from the MB's residence as being reported here?

The BN MB Dato Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir is I think being made into a pawn in this political chess game being played by the powers that be for if we are to hold true to the fairness of politics, then a dissolution of the Perak State Assembly should be the order of the day and the people of Perak be given their rights to elect whomsoever they want as their rightful state government?

Zambry is also in danger of having his political career be turned into the BN's sacrificial lamb in this bloody quest for political supremacy over there at the expense of everyone involved.

His future political standings depends very much as to how all this mess is going to unravel in the very near future?

I'm sure that he is having sleepless nights over there due to the political stalemate into which he has inadvertently being thrown into by the PM in Waiting, the Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak!

Najib's just sort of played out Anwar in this jump ship policy for now and caused Anwar to be back slapped at his own game!

The way things are taking place there in Perak is not good for the political future of this nation.

If the Pakatan Rakyat MB Nizar continues to remain there in the official Perak Menteri Besar Residence and keeps claiming that he is still the MB of Perak when His Highness the Sultan of Perak himself has disowned him, I wonder as to how he is going to remain recalcitrant when the next Majlis Raja Raja Melayu @ Malay Rulers Council meet comes up where the respective Malay Sultans and Raja will be accompanied by Their Majesties Menteri Besar's?

How will it be for him when there will be Datuk Dr Zambry sitting next to Tuanku Sultan Azlan Shah and Nizar be barred from even entering the function rooms of wherever the next Malay Rulers Conference be held?

To the Malays, such a situation would be the utmost degree of shamelessness if Nizar remains defiant of the Perak Sultan yet still claim to be the Menteri Besar of the state?


Such a disgraceful situation would cause the Japanese to commit harakiri or seppuku but such a choice or way out isn't there for Nizar for he is a Muslim and ought to just resign with honor.

That is if he is the man most people take him to be ?

A honorable man caught between the Devil and the deep blue sea or in our case...murky polluted seas.

Things don't look good for Nizar if he still chooses to remain recalcitrant at the expense of his own self dignity and honor?

Islam doesn't teach us this.

The best thing for Nizar and the PR Exco's to do would be to either resign honorably and boycott the next sitting of the Perak State Assembly which will force the installed Perak BN Government to be caught in an uncomfortable position as to come out looking so out of place where there is no opposition?

The PR chaps should consider suing the BN and fight it out in the courts rather than have their supporters get whacked by the FRU on the streets of the nation as the riot that took place there in Kuala Kangsar during the installation of the new BN MB Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir?

I mean, hello ?

Serbans and kopiahs pitted against tough helmeted licensed to kill law enforcement officers?

Just not right my man! It's a classic sorry ass case of the cucumbers against the durians!

Whichever angle you put them against the FRU, the poor folks will be left smashed and beaten black and blue!

Absolutely not right at all!

Consider the impact and impression that you guys are making on the young minds and souls of our nation taking all these into consideration as to how they should in turn act and behave when their time comes to call the shots or run this country?

Let commonsense prevail and look for better alternatives to pursue your case.


For the record, I do not have any political ambitions or vested interests in any bloody party ruling over this nation except to voice out and speak up for my wish that whoever it is who is running the country to please do so in a manner befitting our positions as God fearing Muslims for if we do anything illegitimately like this staging of a turncoat policy, then your rule is haram and whatever that you gain from such rule is haram as well!

Do the right thing and call for fresh elections so that whoever it is that wins this fresh new elections gets a solid mandate and rules in peace for the benefit and betterment of the nation.

May justice prevail both for the opposing political parties and the general populace of Perak and Malaysia.
