Malaysian Political Reform Deformed.
In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
May Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon you.
Dear fellow Malaysians.
Not a day has gone by without the nation seeing the so called political reform that was promised us by those who have now come into power in certain states turning into nothing but political rhetoric and now totally deformed from the average Malaysian voters expectations.
Instead of working on improving the lots and lives of those who voted for them, politicians from both sides of the field are staging nonsensical gimmicks and theatrics day in and day out with the hope that the public will garland them as their champions and heroes of the day, worthy of being worshiped and iconized for posterity.
Is that the reason why we voted these political rhetoric spewing fellows in the first place?
I voted for Khalid Ibrahim in my constituency of Bandar Tun Razak here in KL. Has anything good come from it? Nothing out of the ordinary.
Life remains the same for us here. Nothing to show or boast of for the infrastructure of this parliamentary has already been well developed and the emergence of the Dataran Dwitasik new township in Bandar Sri Permaisuri adjacent to Bandar Tun Razak is just part and parcel of the development brought about by the Barisan Nasional government before this.
The new masjid at Bandar Sri Permaisuri was officially opened to the Muslim ummah here recently. This is a project of the BN. Thank you for that.
I have yet to learn of any new developments or improvements to our life's here in Bandar Tun Razak by Khalid Ibrahim, the PKR's Member of Parliament here whom I voted for in the last GE.
Ever since the nation saw a change in the Perak State Government brought about by the 3 'Pakatan Rakyat' turncoats @ Jelapang DAP State Assemblywoman Hee Yit Foong, PKR Behrang State Assemblyman Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi and PKR Changkat Jering State Assemblyman Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu who turned traitors to their voters, the State of Perak Darul Ridzuan became a political circus and remains as a permanent game of a tug of war between the BN and the 'Pakatan Rakyat'.
Has this situation brought about any good for the state or the whole country?
So much precious time and resources has been wasted by both parties @ the 'Pakatan Rakyat' and by the Barisan Nasional.
Instead of working as they should to improve the lives of the ones who voted them into power, the political turncoats inspired by Anwar Ibrahim's call for the BN MP's to jump ship on 16th September 2008 to topple the BN Federal Government of Malaysia, the 3 'Pakatan Rakyat' political frogs jumped over to the other side and screwed Anwar Ibrahim's dream to become the next Malaysian Prime Minister and resulted in producing the political seesaw in Perak that came into being now!
Frankly speaking, the way that the then Perak Menteri Besar went about dishing out 999 years land titles to the Perak Chinese caused the Malays to cry foul and unleashed a backlash that reverberated to crack open their slim majority over the BN in the Perak State Assembly.
Speaking on a matter of principle, the 3 seats of the turncoats should have been declared vacant and by elections held there to get a fresh vote and political mandate from the people of Behrang, Berchang and Jelapang.
Acknowledging them to be still legitimate representatives of the 3 constituencies initiates a ground for future political treacheries to be committed by other State Assemblymen or women and Members of Parliament nationwide.
This is not only a criminal breach of trust that has been accepted by the Perak Sultan and the Malaysian Judiciary but morally and religiously wrong in Islam and all other forms of faiths and beliefs.
The Perak State political turmoil has now become a benchmark of political rhetoric and reform gone wrong and brews a vile concoction of political distrust between the people and the very persons who are supposed to be in their service.
Where is the legitimacy of allowing those 3 turncoats to remain as the assemblymen and women there in Berchang, Behrang and Jelapang?
No doubt that the Perak BN under the leadership of Zambry Abdul Kadir are gripping the seats of their ill gotten power very tightly out of the legal technicality granted to them by the Malaysian Judiciary, we ought to remember that if judged according to Islamic Laws and Principles of Syariah, the current BN State Government of Perak is actually haram for having the majority of seats brought about by the criminal breach of trusts of the voters of the 3 constituencies!
This is the reality and we who are true Muslims must bear in mind that Almighty Allah is watching us and all who are part and parcel of the current political seesaw between the BN and the 'PR'.
I call for the 3 constituencies to have a fresh by election and once the people there make their choices, for all parties concerned to accept and respect the people's decision.
Continuance of the current BN Perak State Government is not only unjust to the people of Berchang, Behrang and Jelapang but will remain as a symbol of political treachery accepted and recognised wrongfully by the Sultanate of Perak and the Federal Government of Malaysia.
Whomsoever claims to rule righteously in the Name of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala must adhere to and submit to the Hadith of Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam :
From Shahih Al Bukhari, in the Book of Ar-Riqaq, Page 990, Chapter 18 -The disappearance of Al-Amanah.
Hadith # 2114.
Narrated Hudhaifa Radhiallahu Anhu that Allah's Messenger Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam narrated to us two narrations, one of which I have seen (happening) and I am waiting for the other.
He (Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam) narrated that Al-Amanah (Trustworthiness) was preserved in the hearts of men (in the beginning -fitrah ) and then they learned it ( Al-Amanah) from the Qur'an and then they learned it from the (Prophet's) Sunna (legal ways).
He (Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam) also told us about it's disappearance, saying " A man will go to sleep whereupon Al-Amanah will be taken away from his heart and only its trace will remain, resembling the traces of fire.
He then will sleep whereupon the remainder of Al-Amanah will also be taken away (from his heart) and its trace will resemble a blister which is raised over the surface of skin, when an ember touches one's foot; and in fact, this blister does not contain anything.
So there will come a day when people will deal in business with each other but there will hardly be any trustworthy persons amongst them.
Then it will be said that in such and such a tribe ( *or political party or NGO) there is such and such a person who is honest, and a man will be admired for his intelligence, good manners and strength, though indeed he will not have belief (Iman) equal to a mustard seed in his heart!"
(The narrator ~ Hudhaifa Radhiallahu Anhu added) : There came upon me a time when I did not mind dealing with any of you, for if he was a Muslim ; his religion would prevent him from cheating, and if he was a Christian, his Muslim ruler would prevent him from cheating ; but today I cannot deal except with so-and-so and so-and-so.
Sadaqa Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.
Dear fellow Malaysians,
Can you see that what the blessed Prophet of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala warned us about has come to pass?
Today, we are seeing all that the Prophet Muhammad ibni Abdullah, Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam prophesied a thousand four hundred over years ago come to be proven true as in the case of the political mayhem we have here amongst us!
We trusted people who stood for elections based upon what we perceived them to be and to stand by what they claimed to hold and live by?
As prophesied by Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam Muhammad Khataman Nabiyyi, the example and case of these 3 treacherous State Assembly men and woman breached the trusts of their Behrang, Berchang and Jelapang constituents and became political turncoats due to their nafs and greed has been proven true of the disappearance of Al-Amanah @ Trustworthiness.
The entire Malaysian Government and Malay Sultanates reek of such instances of the disappearance of Al-Amanah as prophesied by Almighty Allah's Greatest Messenger a thousand four hundred over years ago to the dot!
The so called Malaysian political reform that you and I dreamed about and desired has sadly been deformed and exposed to be nothing but mere rhetorics by both parties and all those who claim to be the righteous rulers @ `Ulul `Amri of this land.
Corruption, embezzlement, treachery, criminal breach of trusts in all levels of the Malaysian society manifests itself by the reports and complaints we read about and published day in and day out without fail in all the media mass communications we have here today with us and yet the disappearance of those whom we can trust by the day continues to stab us in our hearts and minds by its sharpest of realities.
Who can we trust?
Bear in mind that I am speaking just based upon the criminal breach of trusts by the 3 Perak State Assembly men and woman in this article. I do not support the antics of both the BN and the 'PR' in the Perak Crisis. Thank you.
Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.
Wassalamualaikum Warahmatulillahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.
