Umno the provocative agent in Bersih 3.0

Let see the video , it shows clearly who the culprit was.

Rally Bersih 3.0 Organisers Breached Peaceful Assembly Act 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 (Bernama) -- Unruly acts, breaching the police barricade and making children a party to an opposition-backed rally, reflect a failure on the part of its organisers to abide by the Peaceful Assembly Act 2011.
The Act states that a person below age 21 cannot be an organiser while children under 15 are not allowed to participate in a rally of such nature.
Those found guilty under the Act are liable to a fine of up to RM20,000.
Political observer Che Hamdan Mohamed Razali, from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Dungun campus, Terengganu said, today's rally organisers led by Datuk S. Ambiga and backed by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang were liable under the law.
"Ambiga and the other opposition leaders succeeded in drawing a crowd but she failed to control them," he said when contacted by Bernama.
Che Hamdan, who is also political science lecturer at the campus, said bringing children to the rally was akin to indirectly telling them that it was all right to go against the government in such manner. What we worry about is that it might potentially become a culture to these children in the future," he said.
The rally did not focus on 'clean and fair elections' alone; Other issues, among them, Lynas, National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT), as well as the Felda Global Ventures Holdings (FGVH) listing in the Malaysian stock market were dragged in, as well.
Che Hamdan said, if the organisers had only focused on election issues, there would not have been as many participants, probably a mere 8,000.
"That's why, the opposition exploited issues such as Lynas, LGBT, PTPTN and the FGVH, to gain support. For example, they used the PTPTN issue to draw support from the youth.
"This is their strategy to attract a large crowd," he said.
Experts have affirmed that the Lynas Corporation's rare earth processing plant in Gebeng, Kuantan, Pahang was safe, barring non-compliance of the regulations by Lynas. Nevertheless, the Malaysia Science Academy will organise a dialogue programme on Lynas next month, for those who still do not understand or insist on further explanation on the issue.
As for LGBT, Che Hamdan said Malaysia, as an Islamic country, did not condone such practices which were against the teachings of Islam.
Meanwhile, the rally had failed to achieve its 100,000 participation target.
Police said the 20,000 participants at the rally was a small number as compared to the city's population of 1.8 million.

tunku : well the act is breached but who malaysian think that hishamuddin will be dare enough to take action against the organizers ? i doubt it.

The Right To Gather Versus The Right To Freedom?

KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 (Bernama) -- Many people with business in the city tomorrow have rescheduled their activities.
Tuition centres, private colleges, clinics and business premises have postponed their routine activities scheduled for tomorrow, not wanting to take the risk of having to put up with a gathering planned for Dataran Merdeka despite the square being declared out of bounds by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).
When a large gathering is held in an open area and orchestrated by political parties, there is no guarantee against damage to public property or the occurrence of mishaps.
Many people are asking how the Peaceful Assembly Act can safeguard the right to freedom of the public which they feel can be jeopardised by the gathering.
Is the non-governmental organisation backed by the opposition bent on testing the "bite" of the Peaceful Assembly Act by way of the gathering? The general public wants to know whether police powers to maintain public order have become restricted.

tunku : majority of the people are against street rallies as it is not good for everyone but only for the popularity of the minority group. peaceful assembly act should not be the license for them to assemble when or where ever they wish. it should have a clear guideline for a peaceful assemble with term and procedures.the police should not be too lenient like the bersih 2.0. why should police provide food for them?

Nallakaruppan Hands Over Video Tape Containing Evidence In Anwar Suit

KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 (Bernama) -- Malaysian United Indian Party president Senator Datuk S. Nallakaruppan has handed over a video tape to his lawyer, claiming it contains evidence pertaining to a RM100-million libel suit filed by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim against him.
He handed over the tape to Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah about 2pm, at the Jalan Duta Court Complex here Monday.
"I have given the video tape to my lawyer as evidence in the libel suit. Whatever evidence I have, I have given it to my lawyer. I want them to open the video in court. Let the court decide," he said.
Nallakaruppan, however, refused to reveal the contents of the video tape, saying it was up to the court to decide on the matter.
He also maintained his stand that Anwar was a bisexual in nature. "I stand firm on my facts, I will not run away, I already gave the evidence to my lawyer. I am waiting to tell the truth in court," he said, adding that he wanted the case to be heard in court soon.

tunku : where is anwar hiding? why he did not file in the libel suit against nalla till now. Nalla is more advance than him when he handed over the "video" to his lawyer. let us wait for the excuses from anwar and let us see the love of his wife now. the video is said to have contents of shamsidar's affair with anwar.

Bersih Rally Not Security Threat - Hishammuddin

KUALA LUMPUR, April 22 (Bernama) -- The home ministry will allow next week's Bersih rally and similar peaceful gatherings as they do not jeopardise national security.

"Nevertheless, the FRU and other police units will always be ready," he told reporters at a gathering with Sembrong-born people in Bukit Kiara here Sunday.
On Kuala Lumpur City Hall's (DBKL) decision not to allow the gathering to be held at Merdeka Square, Hishammuddin said the people should look at the rationale of the decision.

Pakatan wants to delay Selangor polls

KUALA LUMPUR: The Pakatan Rakyat Council has recommended for Selangor not to participate in the coming general election, should the Election Commission (EC) fail to clean up the state's electoral roll.
Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the matter had been relayed to Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim and the recommendation was made because of alleged massive movement of voters happening in Selangor.
Pakatan claims that as of December 2011, there were an additional 500,000 voters in Selangor, a figure which constituted 35% of the total number of voters.
"Until and unless the electoral roll in Selangor undergoes a total clean-up, the state should not take part in the election if it is called any time soon," he said after chairing the council meeting here Wednesday.
On whether the same recommendation was made to the other Pakatan-held states of Penang, Kedah and Kelantan, Anwar said the matter had not been decided , adding the coalition was "more concerned with the state of affairs in Selangor".

tunku: cowards....that's the exact word for anwar and pakatan. they know that selangor in danger so they try to delay but at the same time they said they have support from the people, you have support why you worry? be brave enough, don't chicken out.why only concern in selangor, what about other states? you mean to say that kedah, penang and kelantan having clean electoral roll? if the electoral roll is not clean how had you won in the previous elections? COWARDS.

Opposition MPs Refuse To Offer Explanation On Alleged Insult Against Malay Rulers

KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 (Bernama) -- Opposition Members of Parliament (MPs) alleged to have mocked and ridiculed the Malay rulers during the installation ceremony of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah at Istana Negara on April 11, refused to offer any explanation or make any effort to deny the allegation.
Instead, Azmin Ali and Tian Chua of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and Khalid Samad of PAS questioned the credibility of Dr Rahman Kadir, a medical officer who wrote about the alleged incident in his social web page.
Azmin, who is also PKR deputy president, also held Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) responsible for sensationalising the issue.
"From the feedback I received, it's clearly a propaganda of Umno and BN. Who is this doctor? How can a medical officer sit in the Balairong Seri of the Istana Negara?" he told reporters at the Parliament lobby here Monday.
Meanwhile, Tian Chua also rejected the proposal to set up a Royal Commission to investigate the incident, saying that Dr Rahman did not have any solid evidence and witness in connection with the alleged incident.

tunku : opposition leaders are known to be traitors to the Rulers and nation. they do what they want without having the respect for the country and the Rulers. if dr rahman is lying why don't these jokers like tian chua, azmin and khalid samad are not suing him? sue him for defamation.if you keep denying like this with your stupid theories that means you are twisting the facts.if you really didn't say those words , sue him asap.why can't a doctor be at the balairong seri? is it wrong? under what law or regulation?

Anwar Wants PSC Be Set Up To Study Bill To Replace ISA

KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 (Bernama) -- Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim called for a parliamentary select committee be set up to review the Security Offences (Special Measures) Bill 2012 to replace the Internal Security Act (ISA) 1960 as he feels there are still injustices against human rights in the new Bill.
He said although he welcomed the government's move to repeal the ISA, he found some provisions in the Bill to be tougher than the ISA.
"These include the new condition of having to refer to the court if the police want to rearrest an individual," he told reporters at the parliament lobby, here, Monday.
The Security Offences (Special Measures) Bill 2012 to replace te ISA was tabled in the Dewan Rakyat for the second reading by Prme Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The Bill states, among others, that no person shall be arrested and detained under this section solely for his political belief or political activity.

tunku: what else do they want? when the government wants to abolish ISA, they feel its to their disadvantage as they can't accuse the government and use that issue any longer. so they try to find ways to discredit the government's move. what else to this moron wants, government had assured that no person shall be arrested and detained under this section solely for his political belief or political activity.that should be a very good these people want to safeguard the right of potential terrorist?

Parents Encouraged To Register Children For Child ID Kit

JOHOR BAHARU, April 6 (Bernama) -- Parents are encouraged to register their children for the Child ID Kit issued by the police in collaboration with RHB Banking Group, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said. The kit contains information such as pictures, fingerprints and birthmarks of children which could facilitate police investigations in the event a child goes missing.
"We won't force parents to register for this kit. The registration is free," he said.
"Previously, we have been utilising the NUR Alert in tracing missing children; the use of this kit will further add value to the effort to trace the victims," he told reporters after chairing the Pan-Malaysia CID Chiefs Meeting, here today.
Ismail said parents who are interested to obtain the kit could do so by bringing their children to register at RHB counters during the nationwide safety campaign.
He added that the kit would be kept by parents or guardians and only to be handed over to police when needed.
Ismail also said that police planned to expand the use of face recognition system known as "Bio Face" to facilitate the move to track down criminals.
"The face and fingerprint recognition device would be installed in public places," he said.

tunku : why don't the government issue identity card to children below 12 years old? this will help police a lot and easier for the parents to carry them around instead of the birth cert.when they turn 12, they can make a new identity card.

Muhyiddin: Stop Politicising Chinese Education Issue

KUALA LUMPUR, April 4 (Bernama) -- Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today all quarters should stop politicising Chinese education issues and instead concentrate on efforts to enhance the educational quality and development in all schools.
Muhyiddin, who is Education Minister, said this was crucial so as to strengthen the country's competitiveness in facing the challenges ahead.
On the shortage of teachers in National-type Chinese Primary Schools (SJKC), he said, the government was truly committed and serious in tackling this issue in a prompt and effective manner, and that among the measures taken was the setting up of a special committee headed by Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong to address the shortage of SJKC teachers, last month.
"The move was taken not because of pressure from any quarters," he said in a statement Wednesday.
He added that as a government that cares, it has implemented systematic measures as well as streamlined and continuous policies to address the shortage of SJKC teachers.
"I hope, therefore, that the Chinese community would welcome the short-term and long-term measures announced by the committee on March 20 because the national-type primary schools are never separated from the country's education system," he said.
Muhyiddin said it was important to explain this issue so that the true pictures can be given to counter baseless claim and accusation against the government and the ministry.
"To ensure the smooth running of learning and teaching in SJKC nationwide, the Education Ministry has been striving each year to fill up the vacancies for SJKC teachers," he said.
He pointed out that in 2009 there was a shortage of 4,991 SJKC teachers. The figure dropped to 3,043 in 2010, and to 2,720 in 2011 while for this year, the number was 1,874, he said.
"Of the 1,874, the Education Ministry has appointed 1,482 interim teachers to fill up the vacancies. The shortage of SJKC teachers now stands at 392, and headmasters are allowed to propose the appointment of interim teachers to the state Education Departments to fill up these posts," he said.
Muhyiddin said the ministry allocated 38,047 posts for SJKCs and that until end of January this year, 36,173 trained teachers have been posted in all SJKCs.
"A total of RM1.8 billion is spent annually to pay the salary of teachers and manage the operations of SJKC schools nationwide," he added.
He said the special committee met with Chinese educationist associations and other trust holders on five occasions -- on March 5, 8, 16 and 23 and on April 2 -- to overcome the problems faced by Chinese schools.
He pointed out that during the meeting on March 5, the committee met the Planning and Policy Research Division (BPPDP), Teacher's Education Division (BPG), Education Services Commission (SPP), Malaysian Institute of Teachers' Education (IPGM), School Daily Management Division (BPSH) and SJKC Headmasters Association.
The committee also held a joint meeting with Dong Zhong, Jiao Zhong, HuaZhong and the National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) on March 8, 16 and 23 as well as last Monday, he said, adding that Dong Zhong only attended two of the meetings.
"To ensure all decisions of the committee are implemented as agreed, a follow up coordination meeting was held by the committee on March 27 together with the BPPDP, BPG, IPGM and the NUTP, with the BPSH acting as the secretariat," he said.
Muhyiddin said to overcome the shortage of teachers in SJKCs, a total of 1,482 interim teachers have been deployed to all states, while headmasters have been given the greenlight to propose the appointment of the remaining 392, on April 1.
"These interim teachers will serve until the deployment of trained teachers can be carried out, depending on the actual vacancies based on the approved Personnel Management Expenditure Estimate."
He said on March 27, the Education Ministry issued an extension of service for the SJKC's interim teachers, and that to implement this agenda, SJKC headmasters were allowed to nominate those with qualifications to become teachers, with the appointment to be made by the respective state education directors.
On the issue of remedial teachers who have no bilingual capability, and the move by SJKC board of governors to transfer 100 such teachers because of their inability to communicate in Chinese, Muhyiddin said, the ministry�s study showed that there were among these teachers who obtained a credit in Chinese language.
"Seven of them are found to have Chinese language qualification, namely two in Melaka (SJKC Chabau and SJKC Pay Hsien), two in Sarawak (SJKC Chung Hua, Sibuti and SJKC Chun Hua, Serian), one in SJKC Hin Hua, Selangor and two in Johor (SJKC Sengkang, Kulai Jaya and SJKC Ban Foo)," he said.
Muhyiddin said that the ministry decided that these teachers who have Chinese language qualification, would remain in these schools while other teachers would be redeployed to national schools starting April 16 as decided by the special committee at its meeting on Monday.
To overcome the shortage of teachers with social studies option, who have no Chinese language qualification, he said, 17 of them with Malay language minor have been posted in Kelang, Selangor, and one of them, who has Chinese language qualification, will remain in existing school, SJKC Chung Hua, while the rest would be move to national schools.
A teacher at SJKC Chabau Melaka has been replaced with a Chinese studies teacher.
On the teaching of Malay and English languages at Level 1 of SJKC Grade A and B, he said, these would be taught by teachers who have Chinese language qualification at least at the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia level.
Muhyiddin said in terms of long-term initiatives, the BPG and IPGM were currently drawing up an option intervention programme for teachers who have not opted for the Malay and English languages, and taught subjects other than Chinese language for more than five years.
These courses are expected to start at the latest by end of this year so as not to affect the teaching and learning process in classes, he said, adding that the government has come up with plans based on the needs of SJKCs, and the mechanism to train not only teachers for the Chinese language but also to deploy more Chinese studies lecturers.
Muhyiddin said at the moment, there are 72 Chinese studies lecturers at IPGMs nationwide, and that the ministry has agreed to take in 30 more to enhance the teacher training capacity.
"The application to become lecturers at IPGMs, including for Chinese studies lecturers, was opened between March 13 and 30. At the moment, the secretariat at the ministry is processing these applications and intake will be made on June 1 this year.
"Intake of lecturers will be made continuously," he said.
To increase the number of trained SJKC teachers, the ministry has also consulted the Education Services Commission and found that among the bachelor degree holders who were interviewed from public institutions of higher learning, 105 of them had Chinese language qualification at the SPM level.
"The ministry, therefore, agreed to appoint them to serve in SJKCs in the near future," he said, adding that the move taken by the government showed that it is sincere in resolving the issue.
"Nevertheless, I've instructed the committee to continue holding discussions and to obtain inputs from all stakeholders, to look into all views and take into consideration all aspects, and find a solution if there are other issues being raised," he said.

tunku : it is time for malaysia to stop this vernacular system. only in malaysia we have these National-type Chinese Primary Schools and National-type Tamil Primary Schools . even thailand, singapore and indonesia does not have these type of schools. these type of schools which divides the people. we should not listen to the extremist and racist people. they said we are racist but they are the biggest racist on earth.1Malaysia 1School.
