For those who understand the impossibility for the illegal BERSIH 2.0 group of rabblerousers pretending to speak for the entire citizens of Malaysia by misusing the term ‘rakyat’ meaning ‘citizens’ to get official permission to now use Stadium Merdeka can best be described as being caught in a ‘Catch 22’ situation!
Catch 22 means being caught in a situation in which a desired outcome or solution is impossible to be attained because of a set of inherently illogical rules or conditions!
BERSIH 2.0 has been declared to be an illegal organization by the Malaysian Home Minister for the obvious reason that they have yet to be registered with the Registrar of Societies and thus can’t officially be allowed to rent or lease the stadium which they are now seeking after His Royal Highness, Tuanku Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, the reigning Malaysian King decreed that the illegal BERSIH 2.0 demonstrations must not be allowed to take place on our capital city streets.
The Royal Malaysian Police can’t issue them permits to hold their rally either because they @ the BERSIH 2.0 committee are not officially registered and have been declared to be an illegal organization!
That leaves the BERSIH 2.0 caught between the proverbial Devil and the deep blue sea! Hence my saying that they are now in a ‘Catch 22’ sorry ass position!
I can only blame the weak administration of the former and current BN Federal Governments for being the root cause of allowing all these problem makers so much room to wreak havoc unto the nation ever since Tun Dr Mahathir gave up on being the Prime Minister in 2003 and handed over power to the weakest and most useless PM the country has ever had!
It was during Abdullah Badawi’s term as the 5th Malaysian Prime Minister that saw Islam Hadhari rearing its ugly head and Sisters in Islam plus KJ running riot!
The sleepyhead soon destroyed Mahathir’s 22 long years of effort in keeping Malaysians toeing the line and where our multi ethnic, multi faithed society was kept under a firm administration which continued to prosper the country albeit not being allowed to do as they please as what we are currently witnessing.
When Abdullah Badawi’s weak administration became the reason why lots of Malaysians pissed off at him swung over to vote for the Opposition which became emboldened by the release of political maverick and former Malaysian DPM Anwar Ibrahim from prison on a technicality upon his successful appeal from his imprisonment, the BN lost an additional 4 states here in the Malaysian Peninsular to the loose Opposition Pact comprising of the DAP-PKR and PAS in the 12th Malaysian General Elections in 2008!
It was the worst ever defeat suffered by the BN in Malaysian political history!
The BN also lost its 2/3rd majority in the Malaysian Parliament and the Malaysian Opposition started to become more emboldened in their thrust for power!
Things that were once considered as taboo here in our multi-ethnic, multi-faithed country are now being openly discussed and slander plus libelous mudslingings are now part and parcel of the so called newfound freedom in what was formerly peaceful Malaysia?
Najib Tun Razak’s taking over the Malaysian premiership can be likened to a new house owner taking over the keys to a house left in disarray because the previous tenant messed up like hell?
His problems in trying to bring the nation back into order is further emburdened by having a wife who is seen to be a bit too limelight crazy and often gets into the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons and she is a major liability for Najib and the embattled BN come the 13th Malaysian GE!
See who is at the centre of the media spotlight? Where’s PM Najib? Sidelined to the back!!!
During Tun Dr Mahathir’s legendary 22 long years Premiership, we had not seen Tun Dr Siti Hasmah ever try to make herself be seen more prominent before the nation’s media non stop coverage of her illustrious PM husband. Tun Dr Siti Hasmah was the perfect PM’s wife for so many years. She never ever had caused Mahathir to be in a situation where she held court and he had to be a bystander! Never!!!
The same can’t be said for our Karaoke Queen who has been said to be quite adamant in being there in the media spotlight no matter what?
I have personally seen her being given so much prominence and being pampered in an event which was held at the Sime Darby Convention Center by the Yayasan Basmi Kemiskinan foundation last year.
I just wish that Rosmah Mansor will let Najib be the real Malaysian Premier and let him do his job without her being there to stifle him with her presence.
If she is so damn eager to be the PM, then please go stand in the coming 13th Malaysian General Elections on her own footing IF she has the guts to do so?
I also hope that she pays heed to the Standing Order from Allahu Ta’ala in Surah An Noor Chapter 24 Verse 31 for believing women to cover their modesty :
Waqul lilmu/minati yaghdudnamin absarihinna wayahfathnafuroojahunna wala yubdeena zeenatahunna illa mathahara minha walyadribnabikhumurihinna AAala juyoobihinna wala yubdeenazeenatahunna illa libuAAoolatihinna aw aba-ihinnaaw aba-i buAAoolatihinna aw abna-ihinna awabna-i buAAoolatihinna aw ikhwanihinna aw baneeikhwanihinna aw banee akhawatihinna aw nisa-ihinnaaw ma malakat aymanuhunna awi attabiAAeenaghayri olee al-irbati mina arrijali awi attifliallatheena lam yathharoo AAala AAawratiannisa-i wala yadribnabi-arjulihinna liyuAAlama ma yukhfeena min zeenatihinnawatooboo ila Allahi jameeAAan ayyuhaalmu/minoona laAAallakum tuflihoon
And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.
The way she recalcitrantly goes about bare headed in public view puts Najib in a bad light amongst knowledgeable Muslims and reduces his stature as a true Muslim husband and leader in our eyes.
All it takes is just a simple hijab to solve the matter but then again we are witnessing a humongous ego at play here so its really up to her as to whether she pays any heed to our well intentioned nasihah @ advice here?
I’m afraid that none of us have the unique opportunity to whisper our advice privately into the ‘leader’s ears as advocated by one of UMNO’s young apple polishing scholars recently?
Sorry folks! We’ll leave such exploits to the devoted new brooms. 🙂
Back to Ambiga & gang.
I don’t see things changing for the better as far as the devious ones are concerned here.
Once one has evil intentions and goes about trying to stir up things just to get noticed or advance one’s personal agenda in attaining power the Jack & the Magic Beanstalk way overnight, expect some cut me downs along the way and come crashing down to reality!
