1. Many years ago Mrs. Margarett Thatcher, who was then the Prime Minister of Britain, visited India to attend a conference on the subject of 'women of the world'. The conference was chaired by another lady Mrs. Indra Gandhi, the Prime Minister of India.

2. In her welcoming speech Mrs. Indra Gandhi boasted that India is the biggest democratic nation in the world. She claimed that she was proud to be India's Prime Minister.

3. Mrs. Bandaranaike was another important lady present at that conference. She was the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

4. If one has good memory then one should not forget that of the four lady Prime Ministers of the world, i. e. Golda Meir of Israel, Margarette Thatcher of Britain, Indra Gandhi of India and Mrs. Bandaraneike of Sri Lanka, only the last name did not fight a war up to the time Mrs. Thatcher was delivering her speech.

5. The first three fought and won.

6. Golda Meir defeated the Egyptians; Margarette Thatcher defeated the Argentinian in the Falklands War; Indra Gandhi fought against Pakistan and brought about the existence of Bangladesh.

7. In her speech at the conference Prime Minister Mrs. Margarette Thatcher singled out Mrs. Bandaraneike as being the greatest woman political leader of the world. She said this in front of Indra Gandhi who could have earned the praise herself. It was obvious that Mrs. Indra Gandhi felt slighted and was embarrassed, hurt and angry. It was reported that she walked out of the conference after this remark by Mrs. Thatcher.

8. We know what they say about a woman's 'wrath'.

9. It was after Indra Gandhi's wrath that we hear of her support for the LTTE ( Liberation Tigers of Tigers Eelam ), better known as Tamil Tigers, fighting against the Sri Lankan government for an independent state for Tamils in that part of Sri Lanka where the majority of the population are Tamils.

10. It is just like the DAP of Penang leading a guerilla war against the gorvenment of Malaysia demanding for the independence of the state. As the Chinese ( through the PAP ) already had an independent Singapore as their share of Malaysia we are lucky that the Tamils are not in the majority in Penang.

11. It is reported that after 30 years and about 70,000 dead the LTTE's war of cessation from Sri Lanka has at last ended

12. According to media report the government of Sri Lanka declared their victory after the death of the LTTE's leader Velupillai Prabhakaran and his heir. The LTTE's intelligence chief Pottu Amman is also dead

13. However, there is still a cry from within India and within the LTTE for the continuance of the battle for an independent Tamil state in Sri Lanka. Colonel Soosai of the Sea Tigers will now lead the LTTE. He is the third person in LTTE after Prabhakaran and Amman.

14. In India the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Jayalalita, stated, "Just as Indra Gandhi created Bangladesh, we will create a separate Eelam'. Her remarks came just before the Sri Lankan government declared victory over the LTTE. As head of her All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) Jayalalitha is expected to be part of a future coalition government of India.

15. She is calling for India to fight a war against Sri Lanka to create a separate Tamil Eelam.

16. What about the Tamils of Malaysia?

17. They hate Dato' Seri Samy Vellu and they punished Barisan National in the last election. They dietified the ex-reformist of Islam, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, and had him as their current de facto PKR leader.

18. The Vice President of PAS, Dato' Husam Musa has confirmed that he is a friend and not a follower of Dato' Seri Anwar. This is Husam's greatest b. s.. He claimed that his common bondage with Dato' Seri Anwar is the 'struggle to topple UMNO'. The Hindraf leader, P. Uthayakumar, wrote in his circular dated 26th April, 2009, before his expulsion from Kemunting Detention Camp, that he too intended to 'topple UMNO'.

19. Now that Prabhakaran is shot dead there is logic in Uthayakumar's declaration to the Associated Press that 'armed struggle is out of the question'.

20. Let us believe that the other released leaders of Hindraff, M. Manoharan ( DAP MP for Kota Shah Alam ), L. Vasanthakumar, Ganapathi Rao and R. Kenghadharan are not going to follow Colonel Soosai.

21. It is important to remember that the Tamil Tigers are here in Malaysia. Probably dressed in other uniforms.

22. There are also reasons to believe that the Tigers have a role in inspiring some of the more brutal robberies that have taken place in this country.

23. After all whether they are Tigers or Lions they need funds to buy weapons. Limited funds will bring in limited weapons.

24. Being associated with India the LTTE cannot hope for assistance from such countries as China who regards India as a rival.

25. China chose to help Sri Lanka.

26. Only yesterday there was a demonstration at the Chinese Embassy in Kuala Lumpur where about 100 Tamils condemned China for providing weapons to Sri Lanka to defeat the Tamil Tigers. If they are non citizens they should go home. If they are locals then they should fill in the places recently vacated at Kemunting detention camp.

27. Let us see how peacefull will the street protests by the Hindrafs be.

28. What is the role of the new Malaysia Makkal Sakti political party formed by some top leaders of the Hindraf. Its President, former Hindraf national coordinator R. S. Thanenthiran has vowed of not having street protests anymore.

29. Thanenthiran's intended meeting with the Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib might end up with something substantive provided Dato' Seri Samy Vellu's veto power, against bringing any new party into BN, can be resolved.

30. Thanenthiran's meeting with Dato' Seri Anwar will only result in Dato' Seri Anwar inviting him into the Pakatan Rakyat without actually benefitting the Indian community until, such distant and unlikely future, when Dato' Seri Anwar's becomes the Prime Minister.

31. In order to help Dato' Seri Anwar to get into the PM's chair the new party must revoke its vow of not participating in future street demonstrations. Dato' Seri Anwar needs them to demonstrate in order to achieve his burning ambition.

32. As far as Dato' Seri Anwar is concerned he has M. Manoharan as the DAP MP for Kota Shah Alam, S. Manickavasagam as the PKR MP for Kapar and R. S. Thanenthiran as the President of the Malaysian Makkal Sakti party to be in his ex-Hindraf Coordinating Committee ( HCC ) with Uthayakumar and Dato' Seri Anwar himself as the Joint Chairmen.

33. It is important to note that in his 26th April's pamphlet Uthayakumar denied having any expectation of being compared to either Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela. God forbids... Who is going to do that? These are great leaders for peace.

34. But one does not need to be great to emulate Prabhakaran of LTTE.

1. Dari pengalaman yang kita lihat, lalui dan pelajari kita ketahui bahawa untuk mendapat pokok getah yang banyak susunya maka kita perlu pilih dan tanam benih pokok getah yang baik.

2. Begitu juga dengan pokok kelapa sawit.

3. Bagi yang mahukan buah kelapa pandan maka benihnya juga harus dari kelapa pandan juga.

4. Sesaorang itu akan menyesal jika kerana tidak berhati-hati terus tertanam benih yang salah yang merugikan masa depan.


5. Begitu jugalah dengan manusia.

6. Untuk mengetahui mengenai masa depan sesuatu bangsa pula kita perlu melihat kepada anak-anak muda yang menjadi benih yang akan memimpin bangsanya

7. Jika masyarakat sesuatu bangsa itu membenarkan benih muda yang rendah nilai dalam hidupnya maka buruklah nasib bangsa itu di kemudian hari.


8. Jika Pemuda UMNO diharapkan, sebagai bibit atau benih, untuk menjamin masa depan bangsa Melayu maka nasib bangsa Melayu akan tetap menjadi gelap.

9. Sebabnya adalah jelas sebagaimana yang dimaklumkan oleh Jawatankuasa Disiplin UMNO itu sendiri. Iaitu Ketua Pemuda UMNO, Khairy Jamaluddin didapati bersalah kerana mengamalkan politik wang.

10. Branding 'rasuah' yang lumrah sepanjang zaman pemerintahan mertuanya telah disahkan oleh Jawatankuasa Disiplin UMNO.

11. Barisan Exco Pemuda yang dilantik baru-baru ini adalah dari rangkaian yang memainkan politik wang untuk Khairy. Mereka mengamalkan rasuah dalam kegiatan politik Pemuda UMNO.

12. Walau bagaimana pun Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Disiplin UMNO terlalu lemah, dan jelas tidak dapat diharapkan untuk membaiki UMNO. Begitu jugalah ahli-ahli jawatankuasanya. Oleh itu Khairy didapati bersalah tetapi tidak dihukum.

13. Sehigga hari ini Jawatankuasa Disiplin UMNO dibawah pimpinan Tengku Ahmad Rithauddin mengemalkan 3 ( tiga ) standard bagi yang bersalah di dalam UMNO.

14. Tan Sri Isa Samad, setelah menang sebagai Naib Presiden UMNO telah dipaksa berhenti dari jawatan Menteri dan digantung keahlian UMNOnya kerana didapati bersalah mengamalkan politik wang. Ini ialah 'standard' yang pertama.

15. Dato' Seri Utama Ali Rastum pula didapati bersalah mengamalkan politik wang dan dihukum dengan halangan dari bertanding tetapi boleh kekal memegang jawatannya. Ini 'standard' kedua.

16. 'Standard' ketiga ialah untuk Khairy Jamaluddin yang didapati bersalah tetapi boleh bertanding dan terus memegang jawatan.

17. 'Standard' kedua ini mungkin kerana Ali Rastum mahu bertanding atas kehendak Pak Lah Badawi dan 'standard' ketiga ialah kerana Khairy menantu Pak Lah.

18. Mengikut cerita diwaktu Tan Sri Isa kena tindakan disiplin Naib-Presiden lain juga bermain politik wang tetapi Isa dipilih kerana dia perlu dihapuskan dari politik Negeri Sembilan kerana Khairy Jamaluddin sudah ada di sana.

19. Dato' Rais Yatim juga hampir dikurbankan dengan tawaran untuk beliau menjadi Setiausaha Sekretariat Commonwealth di London. Jika Rais pun keluar negeri maka tinggal Khairylah yang menjadi satu-satunya tokoh di Negeri Sembilan.

20. Inilah yang dikatakan 'technical know-who' dan bukan 'technical know-how.'

21. Melayu sebagai satu bangsa hendaklah melihat dengan cara kritikal keatas semua tokoh atau individu yang sedang memainkan peranan dalam politik dan kepimpinan bangsa dan negara. Bangsa Melayu juga perlu terus meneliti walau pun tokoh itu sudah mendapat jawatan atau sudah pun duduk di kalangan pihak atasan.

22. Mereka yang terbukti curang dan ternyata ada bibit 'penyelewengan' dan 'pendurhakaan' terhadap bangsa dan tanahair, hendaklah diteliti, diawasi, diteguri, dipindahkan, dilucutkan atau digulingkan dari jawatan masing-masing.

23. Banyak yang boleh kita pelajari dari pengalaman Tun Dr. Mahathir.


24. Kita telah melihat bagaimana Tun Dr. Mahathir telah salah memilih timbalannya sebanyak tiga kali dizaman pemerintahannya.


25. Waktu Tun Dr. Mahathir, sebagai Perdana Menteri, memihak kepada Dato' Musa Hitam ( kini Tun ) dalam pertandingan dengan Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah beliau berlandaskan kepada premis 'Musa kawan Mahathir'. Oleh itu Tun Mahathir menganggap Tun Musa tidak akan menderhakai beliau.

26. Ternyata sebaliknya.

27. Walhal Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, pada waktu pertandingan dengan Tun Musa, adalah lebih popular dari Tun Musa, dan sebagai anak Raja Tengku memahami erti kesetiaan, yang sangat dihargai di dalam mana jua istana di dunia ini.

28. Musa juga terkenal dengan slogan di waktu mudanya. Beliau menyeru supaya generasi muda bersikap ' kurang ajar.' Beliau sebenarnya menghayati slogannya itu.


29. Pilihan Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim juga adalah satu kesilapan yang menyusahkan Tun Mahathir sendiri. Kesilapan ini juga adalah secara tidak disedari. Tun Mahathir merasakan bahawa Malaysia, malah dunia Islam juga, memerlukan pemimpin masa depan yang berjiwa Islam. Itulah Anwar baginya.

30. Tun Mahathir bolehlah dima'afkan atas kesilapan ini kerana seluruh rakyat Malaysia berpendapat sedemikian di waktu itu.

31. Dan ada yang masih dikelirukan oleh Dato' Seri Anwar hingga sekarang.


32. Apa yang Tun Dr. Mahathir gagal menyedari pada waktu itu ialah cara hidup Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim di waktu menjadi Menteri dan Timbalan Perdana Menteri.

33. Jika Tun Dr. Mahathir perhatikan maka akan jelas kelihatan bahawa kesemua sahabat-sahabat Dato' Seri di dalam ABIM, kecuali 4 orang, telah ditinggalkannya. ABIM sebagai sabuah badan belia Islam tidak pernah merestui Dato' Seri Anwar menjadi ahli UMNO.

34. Empat orang yang merestuinya ialah Kamaruddin Jaafar dan Kamaruddin Md. Nor ( kedua dari Kelantan ), Ismail Mina ( dari Kedah ) dan Dato' Omar Jaafar ( dari Melaka ).

35. Setelah memasuki UMNO, pada waktu yang sama dengan Dato' Seri Anwar, Kamaruddin Md. Nor, Setiausaha Agong ABIM, telah menjadi Ketua UMNO Bahagian Pasir Putih.

36. Beliau juga, kerana menyokong Anwar masuk UMNO, telah ditunjuk oleh Dato' Seri Anwar untuk menjadi Setiausaha Agong WAMY menggantikan Professor Hamid Abu Sulaiman, untuk menyerahkan tempatnya kepada Kamaruddin Md. Nor, dianugerahkan oleh Dato' Seri Anwar menjadi Rektor Universiti Islam Antarabangsa yang Kedua, iaitu menggantikan Professor Raof yang telah berjasa, di bidang ugama, sejak Malaysia merdeka.

37. Dato' Seri Anwar boleh berbuat demikian setelah beliau, sebagai Menteri Pendidikan, melucutkan Tun Hussein Onn dari menjadi Presiden UIA yang menyebabkan mula retaknya hubungan Tun Dr. Mahathir dengan Tun Hussein Onn di masa itu.

38. Ismail Mina telah menjadi seorang peniaga kaya yang banyak dibantu oleh Dato' Seri Anwar.

39. Dato' Omar Jaafar pula telah dipindahkan oleh Dato' Seri Anwar dari menjadi Pendaftar di Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia ke Telekom Malaysia untuk menjadi Ketua Pengarahnya. Dibawah beliaulah Telekom dibenarkan menguruskan TMNet untuk bersaing dengan Mimos dengan Jaringnya.

40. Sepatutnya TMNet tidak menyaingi Jaring, yang direstui Tun Dr. Mahathir, kerana kedua badan itu adalah tajaan kerajaan. Sekali lagi Dato' Seri Anwar menunjukkan perbezaannya dengan Tun Dr. Mahathir.

41. Kamaruddin Jaafar, yang juga seorang kawan Dato' Seri Anwar sejak di Malay College Kuala Kangsar ( MCKK ), telah diarahkan oleh Dato' Seri Anwar untuk memasuki PAS dan sekarang menjadi Setiausaha Agongnya. Kamaruddin Jaafar adalah bersama Dato' Husam Musa dalam kelompok 'Erdogan' di dalam PAS.

42. Dato' Husam, yang kini Naib Presiden PAS, bersama Ketua Pemuda PAS Salahuddin ( juga dari kelompok Erdogan ), bersama Kamaruddin Md. Nor, telah sama-sama belajar dan mengajar di sekolah Dato' Seri Anwar di Yayasan Anda Akademik. Shabery Chik juga belajar di Yayasan Anda Akademik.

43. Disinilah punca krisis di dalam PAS sekarang.

44. Politik wang yang kini berjangkit kedalam UMNO sebagaimana yang didedahkan oleh Muhammad Iraq dan tidak dinafikan oleh Mursyidul 'Am juga adalah budaya yang diamalkan oleh Dato' Seri Anwar waktu dia di dalam UMNO, waktu dia nak beli Wakil Rakyat Barisan Nasional untuk dia jadi Perdana Menteri pada 16 September yang tahun lepas dan kini untuk meletakkan kuncu-kuncunnya supaya menguasai PAS.

45. Dato' Seri Anwar terpaksa menguasai PAS kerana dia tidak boleh bergantung kepada DAP, apalagi dengan adanya Karpal Singh yang kenal beliau, jika dia ingin terus mengepalai Pakatan Rakyat.


46. Jika orang-orang Dato' Seri Anwar menguasai PAS maka bertambah sukarlah bangsa Melayu boleh bersatu melalui kerjasama antara UMNO dan PAS. Masa depan bangsa Melayu dan Ummat Islam di Malaysia kini sangat bergantung kepada kerjasama ini.

47. Bagi Dato' Seri Anwar yang penting ialah beliau menjadi Perdana Menteri. Dia akan korbankan apa saja untuk itu.

48. Yang Tun Dr. Mahathir tidak tahu ialah sejak Anwar berada di dalam UMNO dia telah terpisah daripada ABIM. Sebaliknya kawan-kawan barunya ialah watak-watak seperti Azmin Ali dan Nallakaruppan. Mereka menggantikan tokoh-tokoh seperti Prof. Ghazali Nawawi, Ketua ABIM yang pertama dan Dato' Ibrahim Ali.


49. Kesilapan ketiga yang dilakukan oleh Tun Dr. Mahathir ialah dengan melantik Dato' Seri Abdullah Badawi ( kini Tun ) sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri untuk kemudian menggantikannya.

50. Kesilapan ini didukung dan disetujui oleh seluruh rakyat Malaysia. Itulah sebabnya dalam Pilihanraya Umum ke 11 Barisan Nasional mendapat kemenangan yang besar.

51. Kesilapan ini bukanlah dari segi kebolihan Pak Lah. Semua orang yang kenal Pak Lah tahu kelemahannya. Tidak suka membaca, lembab dan lambat membuat keputusan, penakut, tidak teliti, suka tidur di dalam majlis dan tidak tepat dengan temujanji, dll.

52. Tetapi semua kelemahan ini dapat diterima dengan angapan Tun Dr. Mahathir akan menasihati dan membantu Dato' Seri Abdullah.


53. Malangnya penasihat Pak Lah ialah Tun Musa Hitam, yang menaruh perasaan dendam kesumat terhadap Tun Dr. Mahathir. Oleh kerana Pak Lah tidak mempunyai ide sendiri, kecuali kemudiannya mengambil Tun Jeane sebagai pengganti Datin Sri Hendon, maka Tun Musa dan menantunya Khairylah menjadi sumber inspirasi.

54. Tun Musa tahu pihak Lee Kuan Yew dan Tun Dr. Mahathir tidak sebulu. Maka Pak Lah pun dipengaruhi untuk membatalkan Jembatan Bengkok untuk mengambil hati Lee Kuan Yew dan menyakitkan hati Tun Dr. Mahathir.

55. Tun Musa tahu Proton ialah projek anak emas Tun Dr. Mahathir. Inilah yang mulanya nak dijual kepada Singapura. Untuk merusakkan prestasi Proton maka banyak AP mengimpot kereta dikeluarkan kepada kerabat Khairy Jamaluddin.

56. Khairy Jamaluddin pula adalah bekas pelajar dari World College di Singapura. Kolej Dunia ini adalah sebahagian dari rangkaian kolej sedemikian yang didirikan oleh pihak Yahudi untuk mempengaruhi bakal pemimpin-pemimpin muda di dunia dengan nila-nilai global yang berorientasikan Barat.

57. Di Oxford Khairy berkawan dengan Vincent Lim seorang pelajar yang anti Dasar Ekonomi Baru. Beliau bekerja di Tingkat 4 Putrajaya dan dikatakan mempunyai hubungan rapat dengan 'The Triad' dan dengan Singapura. Vincentlah yang bertanggungjawab merancangkan Koridor Iskandar di Johor dalam usaha menyediakan tapak untuk pelabur dari Singapura, Taiwan dan China, sebagaimana Batam di Indonesia sudah jadi Singapura Kedua.


58. Jika Tun Musa menjadi penasihat ulung Pak Lah Badawi maka Khairy menantunyalah yang menjadi sumber inspirasi.

59. Pada satu hari Pak Lah telah memberitahu kepada Tun Dr. Mahathir bahawa CEO Proton, Tengku Mahalil, tidak akan diberhentikan. Sebaik sahaja Pak Lah berangkat keluar negeri maka dengan serta-merta Khairy mengarahkan Lembaga Proton supaya Tengku Mahalil disingkirkan dari jawatan CEO Proton.

60. Setelah Tengku Mahalil disingkirkan maka Khairy jugalah penyebab terjualnya dengan harga 1 Euro ( sekitar lebih kurang RM4.50 )seluruh milik saham dalam syarikat Agusta yang sebahagian kecil darinya, apabila dijual semula, hanya beberapa bulan kemudian. bernilai ratusan juta ringgit. Siapakah pembeli misteri ini?


61. Beberapa hari sebelum Pak Lah menjadi Perdana Menteri Khairy telah berucap di John Hopkins University di Amerika Syarikat. Dalam perjumpaan di Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies ( SAIS ), di bawah Dekan dan Professornya Paul Wolfowitz, Khairy telah mengutuk dasar ekonomi Tun Dr. Mahathir, seterusnya, apabila menjawab satu soalan, menyatakan Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim akan dilepaskan sebaik saja mertuanya Pak Lah menjadi Perdana Menteri. Katanya, isu Anwar ialah urusan peribadi Tun Dr. Mahathir.


62. Paul Wolfowitz dan Barnett ialah dua orang dari tokoh Yahudi di Amerika Syarikat yang menasihati George W. Bush supaya mengebom Iraq dan Afghanistan setelah George W. Bush enggan mengikut nasihat mereka untuk mengebom Masjidil Haram di Mekah dan Masjidil Nabawi di Madinah.

63. John Hopkins University ialah tempat Wolfowitz mengajar apabila tidak memegang jawatan dalam kerajaan. Anak Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Nurul Izza, adalah lulusan dari John Hopkins.

64. Hubungan Dato' Seri Anwar dengan Paul Wolfowitz begitu dekat sehingga apabila Dato' Seri Anwar ke Munich Hospital untuk berubat mata, setelah keluar dari penjara, didapati Paul Wolfowitz, yang berada di tepi katil Dato' Seri Anwar berhari-hari.

65. Khairy adalah orang yang pergi kerumah Dato' Seri Anwar untuk menyampaikan kepadanya Passport Antarabangsa supaya Dato' Seri Anwar boleh pergi ke Jerman untuk berubat mata.


66. Diwaktu Paul Wolfowitz menjadi Pengarah Bank Dunia itulah maka bank itu telah membiayai sabuah 'Projek Budaya Belia' dan melantik Dato' Seri Anwar menjadi pengerusinya. Selaku pengerusi Dato' Seri Anwar telah melantik seorang wanita Iran yang juga kekasih Wolfowitz yang bernama Shaha Riza, sebagai pengarahnya.

67. Kerana skandal dengan Shaha Riza maka Wolfowitz terpaksa berhenti dari jawatannya sebagai Presiden Bank Dunia. Wolfowitz telah diceraikan oleh isterinya kerana skandal ini.

68. Rangkaian hubungan antara Universiti John Hopkins, Paul Wolforwitz, Khairy Jamaluddin, Nurul Izzah dan Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim mengajar kita untuk melihat hubungan sedemikian dalam rangkaian hubungan politik Melayu di negara ini.

69. Lihat saja hubungan kuncu-kuncu Dato' Seri Anwar dari ABIM, Yayasan Anda dan MCKK yang kini menjadi punca masaalah bagi UMNO dan PAS dan perlu mendapat perhatian.


70. Kita tidak perlu terkejut apabila terbaca bahawa Karpal Singh telah mengecam Dato' Seri Anwar. Karpal memerhatikan bahawa Dato' Seri Anwarlah yang patut disalahkan kerana memperkenalkan budaya lompat melompat dari satu parti ke parti yang lain, sehingga Pakatan Rakyat hilang kuasa di Perak.

71. Usaha rasuah untuk membeli kesetiaan supaya wakil rakyat berpindah parti juga amalan yang dibudayakan oleh Dato' Seri Anwar.

72. Apakah 'masa depan bangsa Melayu' dapat terjamin jika rasuah sudah menjadi budaya kepimpinan.

Tuesday, May 12, 2009



1. I was not at all surprised last Sunday morning 10th May, 2009 when reading, in the newspapers, on the release of P. Uthayakumar from detention. I thought that he should have been released earlier and saved public funds spent on his food and lodging.

2. However, I was rather concerned, earlier on, to read his pamphlet entitled 'Flame of Freedom - My 500 days' in which he declared that ' ..... .... ours is a long drawn battle for freedom - the struggle continues ... ...'. This pamphlet was written, and distributed, from prison at 7.55 am on 26th April, 2009. P. Uthayakumar was obviously afraid that without the pamphlet he would have been forgotten over a period of time.

3. P. Uthayakumar is the one who is unpleasantly surprised by his release. He was saddened by it. With his release it shows that the government is not afraid of him causing trouble any more. Of course he is not thanking the authority for releasing him, or for giving him the freedom which he does not want. We should not accept his reason for not thanking the authority, that is - he was wrongly detained'. All prisoners, even rapists and murderous, for that matter, will claim wrong detention for their arrest.


4. We have never heard detainees thanking the authority for arresting them. Uthayakumar is however different. He became famous for his arrest without achieving anything that he struggled for. Upon reflection he must be thankfull for being detained. It is his road to fame

5. Certainly Uthayakumar realised that the best thing that could happen to him is to be imprisoned. With imprisonment he gained popularity out of sympathy and without much effort

6. From Uthayakumar's pamphlet it is 'obvious' that he enjoyed his imprisonment and hoped that his popularity would grow by the day, and that by the 13th General Election he would have overthrown the BN Federal Government.

7.But his contribution, by being detained, is now ended.

8. In order to maintain his fame or gain more popularity Uthayakumar will now have to offer something for the people. But this can better be done by the Indian representatives, in the Barisan Nasional, under the new leadership. After all Uthayakumar's grouses were provoked by the ineffective leadership of Dato' Seri Samy Vellu and the failure of Tun Abdullah Badawi to recognise this ineffectiveness.

9. Uthayakumar, like his mentor Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, and Pakatan's colleage Y. B. Ahmad Sabu of PAS, realises the importance of imprisonment for achieving fame and popularity.

In fact they should be thankful for the existance of the ISA.

10. While Uthayakumar is sad by his release Ahmad Sabu must be happy with his recent short detention; it will go a long way in helping him to retain the Vice-Presidency of PAS during the next PAS Muktamar. Ahmad Sabu had used this trick my times before.


11. The first great unhappiness that Uthayakumar experienced was when Pak Lah ( now Tun ) forced out of the government. Pak Lah's departure removed a major cause that would spell disaster to BN in the 13th General Election. As of now Pakatan Rakyat is slowly losing the people's support as the Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib advances in performing his duties. If Dato' Seri Najib delivers then BN's performance will improve in the 13th General Election.

12. In his pamphlet Uthayakumar wrote:

"Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's continued unilateral decree is that I be made to serve a jail sentence of two years and indefinitely thereafter under his regime. There are prisoners here at Kemta Kemunting, Taiping, serving their eighth year under the ISA sentences"

13. But what Uthayakumar wrote is proven wrong. He is not going to stay indefinitely. He lost the opportunity to appear serving a course by staying in prison and thereby doing nothing.

14. But why picked on Dato' Seri Najib? Uthayakumar was arrested and detained during Pak Lah's premiership.

15. Furthermore, there is no requirement in the law that the Home Minister has to refer to the Prime Minister before making an arrest or extending a detention. It is the police, and the interviewing legal authority, that recommends to the Home Minister on whom to arrest and on whether an extension of detention is necessary.

16. After all the police is not stupid and would like to minimise their trouble by not releasing a trouble-maker or releasing someone before they are assured that the public cannot be manupulated by the trouble-maker anymore.

17. Uthayakumar picked Dato' Seri Najib to upgrade himself to the level of the Prime Minister. It is political. But Uthayakumar was not arrested for political but security reasons.

18. Uthayakumar hoped that with his continued imprisonment he could gain more sympathy.


19. He wrote:

"I know in my heart that every day of my imprisonment will liberate and open up a thousand minds against UMNO's atrocities and injustices in their marginalisation, discrimination, suppression, oppression and the exclusison of Indians from the mainstream of national development in Malaysia."

20. Why should Uthayakumar picked on UMNO?

21. He picked on UMNO because it is a legally registered political party. By attacking UMNO he hopes that the people will compare UMNO and put it at PAR with the Hindraff, which is an unregistered and illegal organisation. That is impossible and nonsensical.
22. Uthayakumar has forgotten that the membership of UMNO is more than 3 million, i.e. more than the Indian population in Malaysia.


23. But Uthayakumar's problem is not with Dato' Seri Najib but with Dato' Seri Samy Vellu. The Hindraff's rival is not UMNO but the MIC. It is the failure of Dato' Seri Samy Vellu's leadership of MIC which should be the target of Uthayakumar and the Hindraff.

24. But Uthayakumar is an Indian of Tamil origin. He should have gone into the MIC and used his skill, if any, to overthrow his rival Dato' Seri Samy Vellu. Then he would be representing the Indians in the government. Indians of Punjabi, Kerala, Malayali and other origins might not easily find a place in the Tamil dominated MIC, but, being Tamil, Uthayakumar should not find much difficulty if he has the political skill and ability to outwit Dato' Seri Samy Vellu.

25. But he prefers imprisonment as a way of gaining fame and popularity, without really burdening himself with much burden any contribution.


26. What marginalisation is Uthayakumar talking about? If he is talking about the Indians then he must remember that:

a) The two tallest buildings in the world is owned by an Indian, Tan Sri Ananda Krishnan

b) Members of the best singing group of Malay songs are Tamils - the Allycats

c) Indian doctors dominate the medical and health industry

d) Indian lawyers, including Uthayakumar, are found in abundance, and dominate the legal arena

e) There are many Indian accountants and other professionals, and

f) Malayan Land Finance Cooperative Society Berhad was the biggest investment wing of the MIC


27. Is Uthayakumar not happy about these achievements? If it is the mismanagement of the NLFC that is an issue, then don't blame Dato' Sri Najib or, what more, UMNO itself. Najib and UMNO has nothing to do with this. Even UMNO's cooperative, Koperasi Usaha Bersatu Berhad, has failed.

28. If education, housing and health are the issues then ask all the educated and rich Indians, and MIC leaders, on what they should have done and now do.

29. Why are the Indian leaders, like Uthayakumar, silent on these issues when they have all the channels to present their cases. Was it because the last Prime Minister was not listening to any other Indian except for the self-centered and self-serving Dato' Seri Samy Vellu.

30. But we have a new Prime Minister now.


31. Or would you like to wait for a new Prime Minister in the form of Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim not withstanding his well-known sexual and bi-sexual exploits. All the three judges who sat at the trial in which he was acquitted agreed on one thing, and that is, he did sodomise.

32. But Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim was acquitted because the time of the action was not proven.

33. One of the judges was a lady. She disagreed with the judgment because, as she asked, when oppossing it, ' if it is proven that the crime was committed, what does it matter about the time of the crime. If a rapist and a murderer is proven to have raped and murdered does it matter at what time it happened. Could he be acquitted?

34. Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim won because two of the three judges maintained that 'ours is a court of law and not a court of morality'.

35. Uthayakumar should read the record of the trial.


36. Malaysia is a land of opportunities. There is no marginalisation, discrimination, suppression, oppression, exclusion, atrocities and injustices against any race in Malaysia. These rhetorical words are used by the desparadoes who have no correct methodologies of doing things.

37. In the Quran it is said that ' God shall not change the fate of men until they change themselves.'

38. Just like the Indians the Malays too have a lot to complain about. The Malays, being Muslims, should also be reminded of the above ayat of the Quran.


39. In trying to seek sympathy Uthayakumar wrote:

"Today, it is 500 days since I shaved my beard or combed my hair to protest my ISA detention."

40. One is free to keep one's beard and not comb one's hair for any reason. But it must be kept clean for one's own health and so as not to affect the foul odor on other inmates.


41. Uthayakumar further wrote:

"On Jan 31, 2009, I had accidentally injured the last toe of my left foot, which had gotten worse because of my long standing diabetic condition. From day one of my injury, I had repeatedly asked to be treated at the Gleneagles private hospital as I no longer have confidence in the independence of government-service doctors, which I believe had been compromised by the Home Ministry and its Special Branch police officers."

42. There is nothing great to highlight about diabetic having an injured toe. I am a diabetic myself. My advice is for Uthayakumar to stop taking too much sugar or eat too much rice while in prison. He should also do enough excercise. I have always thought that the prison is the best place to control your appetite and thereby control your diabetics.

43. There is no need for that prestigious hospital the Gleneagles, where prosperous lawyers go, to control your diabetics. Your wife can probably provide you with a blood sugar tester and some diabetic pills like 'glucovance 500'. If the blood sugar reading goes above 5.8, depending on the maximum such as 8 or 9, which is an allowable norm for a diabetic patient then you can take a glucovance. One such glucovance will reduce your sugar by 7. Take half if you need to reduce by just 3 to 4 points.

44. As an Indian champion Uthayakumar should not over-eat when many Indians still need help. He should not unnecessarily blow up his problem. He is not going to be amputated. With amputation it is probably difficult for him to march smartly in a future demonstration. My advise to Uthayakumar is to control his blood sugar. He should look after his diabetics and not depend on the police officers who had enough problem keeping the peace of the country.


45. Uthayakumar was reminding us of the Indian Mutiny when the British used pork to provoke the Muslims in India during the colonial period.

46. He wrote:

"On March 22, 2009, I found pieces of beef in the chicken sambal served to me. Mohamad, a Pakistani national, and Abdul Sarjon, a Sri Lankan national, and fellow detainees who worked at the prison kitchen confirmed that chicken and beef were cooked in the same pot after which the chicken was scooped out and served."

47. This is not a very plausible story. If the Pakistani and Sri Lankan nationals had served beef to a devout Hindu then Uthayakumar should declare war on Pakistan and Sri Lanka, like the Tamil Tigers, and not against Dato' Seri Najib and UMNO.

48. If the prison cooks were so creative as to put both the beef and chicken in the same pot it must have been with the intention of eating the beef themselves and served Uthayakumar with the chicken. It would not be to humiliate Uthayakumar as they, presumably Muslims, believed that God forgives ignorance. Surely Hinduism is not that cruel as to punish a devout Hindu for eating beef if he ate out of ignorance. It was important that Uthayakumar stopped eating, as he did, when he found the beef.

49. His report to the police should be taken seriously even without the knowledge of Uthayakumar.

50. Uthayakumar can continue to raise this serious matter with the authorities. But Uthayakumar would not want the opportunity to complain as he wrote:

"I have refused to meet any of the Special Branch Officers who came to meet detainees once in every two to three months, to plead for my release.'

51. It is obvious that Uthayakumar did not want to raise the subject of the beef in chicken curry during the meeting with the special branch officers. That meeting need not be 'to plead for release."

52. It should be noted that Uthayakumar would not like to leave the detention camp even with the beef in the chicken curry.

53. He wrote:

"My biggest satisfaction and what keeps me going in prison is the true and sincere spirit of the struggle through Hindraf's Makkal Sakthi."

54. Now that Uthayakumar is free he can often pray to the diety Murugan at Batu Caves, built by Dato' Seri Samy Vellu during the period of Pak Lah's Islam Hadhari.
