Death of Teoh Beng Hock

A young Chinese man was killed when he was called for giving statement as witness by SPRM (Malaysian Anti- Corruption Commission). His name is Teoh Beng Hock, his was the political secretary to Selangor executive council member, Ean Yong Hian Wah, the Seri Kembangan assemblyperson from the DAP. DAP is one of the coalition party under Pakatan Rakyat.

Teoh was found dead outside the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office in Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam, Selangor. He was 30 and he is going to get marry a day before his death on 16 July 2009.

Chronological events of Teoh’s death:

15 July 2009
The Selangor MACC, investigating allegations of misappropriation of state allocations, had raided Yong's office. Teoh was questioned as a witness at the state MACC office in Plaza Masalam later that day.

16 July 2009
A janitor found Teoh's body on the fifth floor of the building At about 1.30pm. The police are investigating the case.

Teoh’s death is one of the ‘truth picture’ that Allah swt wants to show if you do a sin and another sin and another sin to other human being because of your dishonest purposes, there will be at the time, an mistakable event will took place and it will shook your head and your stomach. Like Malay phrase … “Sepandai-pandai Tupai Melompat, Akhirnya Jatuh ke Tanah juga…”

I do not want to put to many baseless assumptions of what had happened but believe me, someone is covering someone else shit or to cover his own shit (sorry for using unpleasant words).

The only thing that I want to say is how can you take one man life for the sake to topple one state government? I do not know what is your purpose but I just guessing… regardless whether he is Chinese or Indian or Malay, you do not have the right to take his life or claiming that he had committed suicide or to make ‘ridiculous’ remarks of his death.

I heard they interviewed his fiancĂ©, family and friends to develop some ‘reasons’ of ‘explanation’ to connect that he was committing suicide… what a cheap tactic!!

The only thing that hurting the heart of all Malaysian is that why you need desperately to topple the State Government by scarifying a man life. You may success in State of Timah because of the two Malays who you have successfully converted to your end are a real corrupted and spoiled people who only think about themselves… they only want the short term win.. what to do, it is a normal Malay thinking…lazy and want to get rich fast…

Are you not thinking that the man who you wanted to hurt may has a wife, kids, father, mother... What is the value of a life.... 9 months in his mother’ womb, 2 years in kidder garden, 6 years in primary and secondary schools respectively, 5 years in college and university and finally, just a blink of your eyes, he is dead because of your damn foolish mistake. How heart-breaking of his mother and father?

No parents want to see the funeral of their children...

By the way, you may escape the world law but you cannot escape the judgment day by Allah swt.

Abolish PPSMI - right decision or wrong decision made by Government

Surprise me and all Malaysians on the decision made by the Government this evening, where they announced that the PPSMI (Pengajaran dan Pembelajaran Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris) will be ceased by 2012.

First of all, the purpose of implementing PPSMI is to ensure that all students regardless of their races and geographical should be able to master effectively the ideology and principle in Science and Mathematics. On top of that, the students would be able to improve their proficiency in English especially in term of the language and vocabulary in Science and Mathematics.

This is because that all reading materials, references, ideas, concepts, fundamental and forums for Science and Mathematics are in English, moreover other subjects related to Science and Mathematics such as computer, technology, engineering, architect, accounting, auditing and financial are in English.

Sad and disappointed with the demolition of PPSMI will directly demolish the future of our children. How to achieve the full developed country if our children are lacking in English- the common and frequent language used by the majority of the world population?

Some rakyat do not realize that all these top people in parliaments, ministries, politic parties, top ten GLCs, blue-chip companies and etc are laughing on the demolition of PPSMI because their children would not affected. You know why?? All their children are schooling in the International Schools where the medium of language used is in English. So, stop PPSMI or yes PPSMI is not their cup of tea and they do not care less. The only thing they know is that their children will continue to success in the future with their excellent in speaking, writing and listening in English. Contrarily with the children of others. They know that if everybody successful in English, who want to be the lower class people (kuli, pengawal, basuh pinggan, bawa bus, sapu sampah... lu pikir lah sendiri kata Nabil).

I am the good example of the poor decision made by the Government when they decided to change all subjects teach in school from Bahasa Inggeris to Bahasa Malaysia. My English standard is below than the standard of my father and my father-in-law. Both of them are very proficient in English. When both of them are talking, I cannot join them because they use a good, prefect and British-accent English.

I realized the important of English when I studied in ITM Dungun. Just imagine 6 years in Primary school and 5 years in Standard school, i care less about English. Prior to ITM, I did not know what are ‘present-tense’, ‘past-tense’ and so on. I got a very bad result in English during SRP and SPM. I hated the language and sometimes during schooling day, the English subject is not one of my top priorities. I used to speak Malay at home, school and all my friends are Malays and we hardly communicate each other in English.

For the 3 years in ITM, I learned very hard to improve my English. Finally I passed my TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and that was my ticket to study oversea. In 1994, Yabba-dabba-doo! I managed to enroll my study in Michigan, USA. Stayed there for 3 years. I surprised everyone including my parents where they did not see that I have the future to go oversea since they know that I quite poor in English.

So, the morale of the story is that English makes you perfect… without it, I do not deny that you cannot success but if you have it, it will give you the key of success, it will help you to open the door of opportunities, i.e. career, life-partner, promotion, respect, knowledgeably, friendships, and more and more ...

By learning Science and Mathematics in English, I can see that my son aged 10 years old can speak and write English better than me when i was at his age.... Melayu tolonglah fikir sikit.....

V for Vendetta shoud be banned because insulting Quran

I accidentally watched a movie titled "V for Vendetta", a 2005 a super hero film, in TV3 last night. The story was based from a graphic novel by David Lloyd. The story-telling is about a freedom fighter known as ‘V’ uses terrorist tactics to fight the cruel ruling government in UK. V plans to kill all the people who had involved in capturing, torturing and lab-testing of him and other innocent people. V rescues a young woman from the secret police, and she becomes his unlikely ally. They fell in love and at the end of the day, the bad boys got killed, also V but his dream were fulfilled by blowing up the Parliament building. The young woman survived and a half happy ending.

While I was watching the movie, I noticed there were something amiss in the scripts. There were two scenes that the scripts were clearly offended Muslim by touching the perception of Muslim and possession of the Quran.

The Quran is a religious text of Islam which gives guidance and direction for mankind. Quran is a miracle of the prophet of Muslim people, Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. It was written down to Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. in Mecca in 653 CE. The Quran was revealed by Jibril (Malaikat). Quran got 114 Surah and offers detailed accounts of historical events, the do’s and don’ts things, and advices and guidance, the ways of life, the story of end of worlds, heaven and hell, the 5 pillars of Muslim; utterance of 2 kalimah syahadat, praying, fasting, almsgiving and perform hajj in Mecca.

The scripts that offended Muslim and the Quran are:

a. When the Man who known as the voice of London, expressly talked about the list of terrorists, bad people, diseases and etc in TV show. He mentioned that Muslim is one of the ‘bad’ lists.

What is the damaging factor?

His word is damaging the image of Muslim. He considered that Muslim people are one of the dangerous people like terrorists.

b. When the young woman’s friend who temporary gives shelter to the young woman after escaped from V, the man was killed by the Government because he keeps the Quran in his house.

What is the damaging factor?

The message behind the action taken by the Government by killing innocent people who keeps the Quran in their home is totally unfair about the Quran. This gives a totally untruth conceptual of the holding Quran. It embedded to the people’s mind around the world that if you are holding the Quran in your home, you are against the Law and can be sentenced to death.

I remembered when I was in USA in 1996, after completing my study, I was working part-time at Shell Station. One night during winter season, very cool and breezing, an old white American lady approached me at the counter seeking for help. Her car’s tire was punctured and she needed me to change the tire. I got out from the counter and helped her. After I finished, she thanked me and asked me what country I from and what my religion is. I told her that I from Malaysia, and she did not know where is Malaysia but when I told her that Malaysia is located north of Singapore and south of Thailand. Then she nodded her head and told me that she know where Singapore and Thailand are.

Surprisingly, when I told her that I am a Muslim, she stepped back few steps from me and her face turned red. She was shock to understand that I am a Muslim. She told me in fear that her understanding of Muslim is that the Muslim got weird mustache and untidy beard with ugly face, wore turban and dark long cloth (jubah), holding a gun and likes to kill people and children and rape woman and young girl.

I looked at her and explained to her that she got the wrong idea about Muslim. She looked at me deeply into my eyes and told me to convert to Christian since I was a nice boy and I am not supposed to be a Muslim. I smiled to her and rejected her proposal nicely and told her no thanks, I like to be a Muslim and there is a lot of beauty as a Muslim. I walked away with a thousand smile and she stood there looked puzzle in her mind.

Back to V for Vendetta, I wondering why TV3 and RTM did not realize this and ban the movie?
