Dr Chua: DAP practising selective prosecution over Tanda Putera ban

The outcry by the DAP over the screening of the movie Tanda Putera shows the party's practice of selective prosecution, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

"While on one hand they champion the freedom of expression, on the other hand they are forcing cinemas not to screen the movie.

"The DAP adopts selective prosecution and are being double standard in tackling issues.

"I am sure Lim Guan Eng has not seen the movie either but his mouth has already shot out absurdities and casting aspersions," Dr Chua said in a statement on Friday.

Dr Chua said Lim, who is DAP secretary-general and Chief Minister, should not deny the Penang people of making their own assumptions regarding the movie.

"The people are matured enough to rationalise and distinguish what is good for them.

"This is what democracy is all about," he said.

He was responding to the banning of the movie at cinemas in Penang following Lim's statement to the movie houses not to screen the movie.

Lim later issued a statement saying that the movie houses had been "advised" instead of "ordered" not to screen the movie.

Dr Chua said he supported the proposal by the Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin to organise mobile outdoor screenings of the film.

Dr M: Let people watch Tanda Putera

The people should be allowed to watch historical movies like Tanda Putera and The New Village and make their own decisions about it, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

"If they want to ban Tanda Putera, they should ban both movies.
"If they want to show the movie, they should show both. Then, people can
make up their minds," he said during a press conference here Thursday when asked his opinion on the decision to screen controversial film Tanda Putera.

Directed by Datin Paduka Shuhaimi Baba, the film depicts the events leading up to the May 13, 1969 riots, focusing on Malaysia’s second Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak Hussein and his deputy Tun Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman.

The New Village, meanwhile, is set against the backdrop of 1950s British
rule in Malaya, and depicts a love story between a village girl and a young communist guerrilla, offering a glimpse into the lives of Chinese citizens during the Malayan emergency.

Dr Mahathir, during the press conference also reiterated his stand against the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), saying that it could push the country into another financial crisis.
"I hope the government will not accept the TPPA because it will mean that we would no longer have currency control. It may result in another currency crisis," he said.

He added that the country was now experiencing a very high deficit.

"We have always had a surplus since 1998.
"We have to cut down on local expenditure. We cannot spend too much, especially money we don't have," he said.


The movie Tanda Putera has really put fear in DAP particularly Penang Chief Minister who is also DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.

Not only that, even MCA leaders especially its youth chief Wee Ka Siong who warned that the film director Shuhami Baba should be held responsible if racial chaos occur due to screening of the movie.
Both Chinese-based parties with different ideologies are against the screening of the movie and they based their opposition on racial ground.

Let us focus a little on the reason why they oppose and why race is their basis.
The May 13, 1969 incident is a sad story in the history of the country and because of its historical value where every citizen should take note and remember, the movie was made by a very creative director.

He does not create the story but based his movie on actual events and of course, a little creative was put to make it more interesting and exciting but never exaggerate and adding fictions.
So now, whats wrong with a movie that tells the truth? Sacred the truth will erode the public’s confidence in DAP and MCA?

Are they – Guan Eng and Wee – scared of the truth? Have they been living in a make-believe world that the public do not know what really happened?
They are taking the public as fools because they want to dictate which movie the public should see and which movie public should not.

Have they ever thought that the public have no other avenue to know the truth? Have they ever thought in this age of modern technology information is just at the click of the finger?

They fear the truth shows how compromising and accommodative Malays are and how greedy the subversive elements, majority the Chinese who had infiltrated the DAP and Gerakan at that time were.
That’s reality and similar scenario is appearing at present but not in an aggressive form and this have sent shivers to DAP and MCA – both Chinese-based parties – fear that their parties have been infiltrated by the subversive elements and they do not want public to know it.

The reality is they do not want the public to know how compromising and accommodating Malays are and who was wrong once the truth is told and shown.

The public are now analytical and smart and they do not take things on the surface and for granted and in this case, when they see the movie they will make their own analysis and conclude.

So what is there to fear unless they are on the wrong side even without any analysis.

Najib wants Cabinet members to "sync" with each other



Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wants his Cabinet members to be on the "same wavelength" with each other.

"We as members of the administration must be on the same wavelength, in sync with other members," he told reporters here.
 He was asked about calls by several ministers, including Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, for Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department P. Waythamoorthy to quit if "he is not able to value collective responsibility in the Government."

The comments came after Waythamoorthy had alleged that the five members of Gang 04 were "executed" by a police raiding team in Penang.

He had on his Facebook page remarked that based on the photographs at the shooting scene, he believed that the five were shot at close range.

"Looking at the photos, I do not think anyone in the right frame of mind would believe that there was a shootout between the police team and the suspects," he said.

Ministry to study if Penang (Guan Eng) has power to ban Tanda Putera movie.

Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek said he would study whether the controversial film Tanda Putera could be banned from Penang cinemas.
He said local authorities issued licenses to cinema operators, and it needed to be determined if banning films was under its purview.

"Whether this power is used to ban a film is a new matter that needs to be looked at," he told reporters Wednesday.
He expressed bewilderment over the Penang state government's request that its cinemas do not screen Tanda Putera.

He said this was an unprecedented move by any state government, adding that decisions to ban films were usually under the purview of the film censorship board.
"Normally, banned films are those with pornographic or violent elements, or those that send a wrong kind of message to viewers," he said.

He expressed hope that the Penang state government's move would not become a new culture or reason for any party to restrict freedom of expression in the arts.
"For me, only things that clearly go against the film censorship board's principles should be banned. Other things should be given space to allow criticism and debate.

"At the end of the day, viewers are the one who decide the value of the films they watch," he said.
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said earlier that his government had requested all cinema operators in the state not to screen Tanda Putera.

He claimed there were slanderous scenes that could provoke racial hatred and expressed regret that the Ministry had failed to remove some of the scenes.

State Local Government, Traffic Management and Flood Mitigation Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow said the local councils issue licenses to all cinemas but do not have power over the content of the film.

However, in view of the sensitivity of the film, he said the Penang Municipal Council and Seberang Prai Municipal Council would issue letters to all cinemas and request them not to screen the film.

Crimes in Malaysia and Arab Spring is connected?

To those who are monitoring our political scenario from a point of view, one must say that the writer is a ‘paranoid’ or maybe hallucinating trying to connect the Malaysian crime spree with the Arab Spring that is happening in the middle east.

Then, for those who are well informed, they know that today’s political world is connected and not one thing happens without being properly sorted, planned and with someone taking the glory. This happens in all sides from the politically divide partisan system in Malaysia. The world today, especially the Islamic world is systematically being destroyed. It is destroyed by Muslims themselves and many of them destroy it in the name of Jihad or struggle for Islam.

The chants of demonstrator saying that a government is not Islamic, or “Fight for Islam” and “To abolish the sins of the government” has become the main reason of these tensions before it becomes into a rebellion, series of violence and total destruction.

  More over in Arab countries, these chants is being accompanied with poverty and injustice where it is easier to incite the fire of hatred up till it cannot be controlled at all.

  The inability to think rationally among the Muslims in the Arab countries, with the failure to control their emotion, makes the Arab Spring easier to be made into a reality. A little support from the western world, fuelled with a propaganda from western agents inside their own ranks, the Arab countries falls down like dominos in a blink of an eye.

In Malaysia, there is not much different from the Arab countries. Slogan such as ‘the government is not Islamic’, ‘fight for Islam’ and ‘abolishing the sins of the government’ has been heard for years.

There are people in this country, who are willing to destroy the nation because the wives of certain leaders do not wear the hijab (they think this is unIslamic). For them, having a leader that suits their description is important as it will determine their fate in the hereafter. They totally believe that they are perfect Muslims and now have to spread the perfection so that everyone will have a place in heaven.

It is fortunate that majority Malaysians are still rational and do not easily taunt by perception. In addition to that, the nature of Malays who are also Muslims in this country is still courteous and against any form of violence. Thus, many who are dreaming of a “Jihad” to fight against the government, are not ready to sacrifice their lives and everything that they have gained in this country.
Thus the Islamic slogans are no more than useless words. At the end of the day, the Islamist is willing to cooperate with the enemies of Islam just because they hate their own Muslims brothers who become leaders of this country. Now, the Islamist are no longer using their Islamic slogan.
Prise Allah for protecting Malaysians each and every day. And for those who use His name in vain would not succeed.

  If Malaysia were to experience her own “Malaysian Spring” it would be easier for our foreign enemies to meddle into our nation’s issues.

The failure to destroy Malaysia through creating animosity amongst Muslims in the Arab country, now are taking a new approach. Our enemies are trying to provoke the different races in Malaysia. The opposition’s calls for abolishing the Emergency Ordinance, Sedition Act and the Internal Security Act are one of the most important parts for the destruction of Malaysia.

It seems that Malaysians are hard to be convinced to lay their life as a rebel. Then, gangsters and triads are used as a trigger factor. The enemies are hoping that the people of Malaysia will go to the streets and demonstrate like their Arabic Muslim brothers.

 This particular plan is being foiled by the minute as the Malaysian police are trying their best to curb gangster’s activities. In short, whatever issue that is brought up, everything will be related to racism. Their intention is to highlight the racial tension between the different races in Malaysia.

  Thus, knowing the Malaysian citizen who’s reluctant to leave their comfy lifestyle to live as a rebel on the streets, thus we believe that the hope of the enemies is nothing but empty dreams. Let the gangsters kills themselves and let the police handles them.

For the rakyat or leaders who support these gangsters just because they are from the same race, it is truly an insult on their own intellectuality.

In conclusion, Malaysians should think further rather than taking everything as it is. We should not fall into the opposition’s trap who wants to see a much more divided Malaysia. Whatever happens in this country, anarchy is not an answer.        

Learn from the fall of these Arab countries as it is not possible to happen here in Malaysia. The fact of the matter is, we all have the same enemy, a super power nation who are trying to control the world and every single person on this earth.

PAS assemblyman for Salor, Kelantan, Datuk Husam Musa turned down offers from Kelantan Mentri Besar for chairmanship of two state-owned companies, giving a picture that all is not well between him and the state government.

Husam, not appointed as a state exco member although he had proven himself and tipped to be the Mentri Besar upon former MB Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat’s stepping down, he seems to be a ‘war mood’.

Since after the May 5 general election, Husam has been in the ‘war mood’ as he was sidelined and considered as ‘dumped’ by the new MB when he was not picked as an exco member, a position he held under Nik Aziz’s tenure as MB where he was a trusted ally and given the finance portfolio.

Known for his smartness in filling up the party’s coffer and even the state, Husam is known for his alignment with Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and has been closely following all events Anwar leads without fail.

He had even came out with an edict (fatwa) that those who joined the Black Out 505 rally and died in the cause was considered to die as a martyr or died of jihad.

Such is his loyalty to Anwar that the veteran fundamentalist in the party get ‘jittery’ and the obvious thing the veterans would do is to ‘cut him off’ from the leadership line-up to stop the ‘cancer’ from spreading.

With just three months to go for the party assembly when election to the leadership is scheduled, Husam may not let his ‘goal’ slip away as he made much inroads in trying to stay afloat and align the party to PKR.

Husam had managed to get Nik Aziz to support PKR and DAP and he is considered as the ‘glue’ in the relationship between the party and the others in the Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

When PAS leadership decided to stay away from the Black Out 55 rally, Husam and those aligned to Anwar who included  deputy president Mohamed Sabu and several others had influenced the leadership to ‘be together’ in the final rally but the response from PAS members were not encouraging despite the leadership gave the greenlight ‘only for the grand finale’ at Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur.

Given such background and the ‘under current feud’ between the two factions, the coming party poll is expected to be wild and interesting as the veteran fundamentalists attempt to take control of the party while Husam and friends attempt to unseat them.

The November assembly will determine PAS future as the veteran fundamentalists including party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang attempts to gain control of the party against the oinslaught of the so-called young and intellectuals.

Endless Possibilities: Malaysia Launched It Earlier Than Israel.

The slogan ‘Endless Possibilities’ that was launched in 17 September 2012 is being critically discussed in many blogs and websites. The controversy started because some of the bloggers were saying that it is similar with the Israeli Ministry of Tourism’s slogan.

Because Malaysia already use the 1 Malaysia slogan, adding an extension to the slogan with the phrase ‘Endless Possibilities’ makes it so much similar to the Israeli’s slogan.
Thus, Malaysia is being accused as copying Israel, the motives of our government is doubt.

            The fact of the matter is Malaysia has already introduced the ‘Endless Possibilities’ slogan earlier than Israel during the World Economic Forum in Davos on the 13th of Disember 2012. For that, a video titled ‘Malaysia-Endless Possibilities’ shows that Dato’ Seri Najib himself promoting Malaysia. ( (Preview) )

The particular video was uploaded to Youtube on the 5th of February 2013.

 The Tourism Ministry of Israel only used the slogan ‘One Place, Endless Possibilities’ in their website on May 2013. The slogan was never launched and it was never been regarded as an official statement,.
It is clear that Malaysia, did not copy Israel. Maybe Israel is the one who copy form Malaysia, whether they realize it or not, we do not know.

The question is, why so many people keeps on accusing Malaysia was the one who copied Israel and not the other way around? Is it because of the perception that Malaysian does not have the skills to write slogan for its own country.

 Maybe it is time for Malaysian to change the way they think and do not feel so small standing with other countries in the world. The weak and ugly must not always come from us, the brilliant and beautiful must not always come from them.

 Be Proud Malaysia! We can do anything if we put all our effort in it!

Dwindling Investments In Selangor: Pakatan Rakyat is ruining the state.

With rows of new investment coming every year, Selangor Darul Ehsan was Malaysia’s richest state. However, it is fast becoming nostalgia. Today the investment for the state is dwindling ever since Pakatan Rakyat took over the administration.

Selangor is now ranked in number four with the ever decreasing new investment that has seen a 86% drop with RM 1.8 Billion in the year 2012 compared to RM 11.7 Billion in 2011. The same scenario is seen in the state of Pulau Pinang where the state recorded a 73% drop from its former investment.

With a decrease that is too drastic and dramatic, the Pakatan Rakyat are no longer able to point fingers to anyone. After being at the helm of the administration for one term, Pakatan Rakyat failed to prove that it is smarter or more efficient than Barisan Nasional.

            It is clear that investors are not confident with Pakatan Rakyat credibility. It is not impossible for investors to fear the acts of PR leaders who are more of a trouble maker rather than administrator. The state government should promote stability and peace but Pakatan Rakyat government acts like they are agents of anarchy and turmoil.  Who in the right mind would invest in a state where its leaders are constantly politicizing every or any issue that comes to mind?

            The increase of black market and illegal activity in the whole of Selangor during their reign also contributes to the decrease in new investment of the state. The increases of illegal activities are the source of the increase of crime rates thus proves that there are clear sign of corruption problem in the state.

            Investors have to study this situation and this is why Selangor is not the destination for investors foreign and domestics.

            When the condition worsen, Pakatan Rakyat leaders who do not have the charisma or credibility to handle such situation with overseas investors to attract more foreign money. Even the Menteri Besar of Selangor does not have the personality that can give more confidence to the investors, even though he is the representative of his state.

            Putting Anwar Ibrahim as the Economic Advisor for the state of Selangor destroys all hope for Selangor to increase their revenues. Even though Anwar have good relations with people from other countries, Anwar fails to have them invest in the state where his party member is the Menteri Besar. This is because his record of nearly flushing out all of the rakyat’s money during his reign as the Finance Minister still lingers around him like a bad case of shingles.

Other than that, there are a few of the leaders in this state, especially those who are from the DAP party is seen as incompetent to be brought in an internationally recognized event. Thus, it is not a surprise why investors keeps clear from any one of them. Even though the DAP always feels that they are better or much more open from Malay leaders, the fact remains, that they are much worst.

In conclusion, Pakatan Rakyat leaders from any of their parties are not good enough to lead a state.

It is because of that, Selangor can no longer take pride as an investor’s destination state. Selangor economy will be crippled with the yearly decrease of investors. It is no surprise if Selangor will see a lower percentage of investment after Ambiga announced that the biggest demonstration will be held soon.

            In conclusion, PR are not equipped to rule and if the rakyat of Selangor wants this state to be in its former glory, there are no other ways then giving the BN the mandate to rule in the next general election.

Unity Government: The Value of DAP and PAS in the eyes of Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar’s attempt to attract attention through his “unity government” fairy tales is facing bored reaction from the people of Malaysia. Anwar’s tall tales are too farfetched and at times people are annoyed at it antics. Maybe Jusuf Kalla was right, Anwar is crazy.

Anwar is attempting to confuse and disorient UMNO members in order to destroy the reputation of Datuk Seri Najib Razak. It was said that Najib wants to cooperate with Anwar Ibrahim because of his position now are getting weaker. Anwar seems to show that he is in a better position than Najib Razak.

The question is what is the logical explanation that Anwar Ibrahim votes were much more less than the 12th General Election thinks that he is better than Najib? Anwar did not have the support of more than 10,000 people in the Black505, feels that he is much more powerful than Najib Razak?

Thus, once more we would like to remind the people of Malaysia on the statement of Jusuf Kalla ‘Anwar is crazy’.

In his craziness, Anwar forgot, if the unity government is realized, then where does the DAP and PAS stands? Has Anwar acts as the capacity of the PKR member, Opposition Chief or as his own self.

Anwar should have consulted with all the Pakatan Rakyat component parties before making any decision regarding his party.

It is clear that Anwar never took DAP, PAS or any other parties into consideration in his dream of becoming the ruler of this nation. This is because; Anwar Ibrahim only works for himself.

His dream is to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia by any means possible. DAP and PAS are only tools for him to achieve the dream. Looking at the situation, Anwar sees the DAP and PAS fails to carry him to the helm of the nation. Now, he has to come to UMNO to make his dream come true.

In Anwar’s dream, DAP and PAS do not have a say because he is the one who funds all of them.

Thus, as it was stated earlier, it is only Anwar’s dream. Dato’ Seri Najib already made an official statement to deflect Anwar’s statement. We hope that PAS and DAP would not fret as Anwar Ibrahim is known as a manipulator, and he would do anything to achieve his long-time dream. PAS and DAP should just leave him be, because he is an old senile man, who thinks that he has everything, but yet nothing.

Penang’s investment dwindle as investors do not trust DAP.

Penang was once one of the highest invested state particularly investment in the industry sector. Sadly, after five years being under DAP’s ruling, the numbers of investors gradually dwindle.  

In the year 2010, the investment in Penang recorded RM 12.24 billion and in 2011 it falls down to RM 9.11 billion. Finally in the year 2012 the numbers of investment reduced to a mere 2.47 billion, a 73% reduction was recorded. Instead being at the helm of the investment ranks, Penang scored 6th place in the overall state investment in Malaysia.

            Like adding salt in an open wound the Bosch Solar Energy Company cancelled their intention to continue to invest in the state, the investment would be worth RM 2.2 billion. A few other companies was said to have retracted any investment from Penang.

            With the poor performance of the investment environment of Penang, Lim Guan Eng are too arrogant and loves to scrutinise the Barisan Nasional government. It is ironic for DAP to attack BN on such accusation as they were the one who failed the people of their state.

            What more interesting is that the DAP that is popular with its racist stands also practise racism to attract their investments. According to Batu Uban BN Representative, Mr Goh Kheng Sneah, the Penang government are only interested in investors from Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and Korea because all of the countries stated have “Chinese roots” in them. Previously during the BN led Penang, the investment were from America, Japan, Germany and also The Netherlands.

This proves that Lim Guan Eng is not a leader who has a global attitude and can work with international investors. Lim Guan Eng also has problems dealing with investors, ministers and ambassador from other countries. To enhance their stature in global investment a Chief Minister has to play a big part in establishing relationship with other nations.

Other than that the investment delegation must have charisma and skills to promote the investors in the media in the respected state, so that we can have the media on our side especially the respected newspapers or magazine.

Looking at how the DAP is regulating its mega project presentation like the underground tunnel with its typos and their CEC’s controversy that consist of not more than 2,000 votes, we now understand why the investment in Penang is dwindling.

DAP especially, Lim Guan Eng, the Chief Minister of Penang, do not have the charisma or ability to convince the investor to invest in his own state. Other than that, his reputation and image as a cruel gangster style dictator and compulsive liar is spreading like wild fire, are truly effecting the perception of investor to invest in Penang.

Other than tourism, Penang relies on investment from local and international companies to keep the state afloat. However, Lim Guan Eng seems not worried for what has happened. He even “celebrates” his retain in power with silly project such as the floating “Ubah Bird”.

            In the early days of his reign, Lim Guan Eng is busy provoking Muslims while strengthening the Christian movement in this country. He also busy attacking UMNO and playing on racial issues.

Now, Guan Eng’s racist behaviour, no responsibility and gangsters like attitude are bringing a very bad impression towards Penang. With his reputation, Guan Eng is a bad example of a party secretary and his weakness as the Chief Minister, DAP should have a second thought on his place in the party.

Just because he is Lim Kit Siang’s son that does not means that we should just ignore all the bad things that he is doing to Penang. Is it true there are no other individuals capable enough to lead Penang rather than Guan Eng or even the Party Secretary for that matter?


Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s The Awakening: The Abdullah Badawi Years has now become a controversy – political controversy with so many assumptions and conspiracy stories.

It is very interesting because it gives a new perspective to the many theories on how how Anwar Ibrahim plans to topple Prime Minister Najib Tun Abdul Razak as well as ‘politically killing former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.’

The assumption or rather theory in the plot thickens with Khairy Jamaluddin playing the lead role in Najib’s Cabinet who is said will be responsible to bring Anwar back to Umno.

Abdullah’s interview mostly circled around his administration and reasons why he did not follow through projects and plans charted by Dr Mahathir when the latter was Prime Minister.

These are ‘bullets’ used by the opposition to paint a picture of enmity between him and Dr Mahathir and rundown the latter as he is seen as the prime mover of Najib’s support.

The oppositions, especially Anwar Ibrahim, has been trying to weaken Najib through various allegations but none sticks and Abdullah’s book can be considered as one of the ways to weaken Najib’s foundation through ‘elimination’ of Dr Mahathir.

The oppositions have in their minds that Najib’s Malay support comes from Dr Mahathir’s influence and weakening or eliminating Dr Mahathir will weaken Najib.

Thus the book is aimed at Dr Mahathir and not Najib.
Secondly, the oppositions want Malaysians at large to view that Abdullah is with them politically to unseat Najib, and together with him is none other than Tun Musa Hitam.
They want to have an image of wholesomeness…where they are being supported by all level of Malaysians including former Prime Minister and former Deputy Prime Minister.

They want to paint an image where they are seen as truly representing every generation and are fit to take over from Najib and the Barisan Nasional (BN).

Thus, the Awakening is considered as part of their strategy to demonise Dr Mahathir and erode Najib’s Malay base with Abdullah seen as on their side.

Despite Abdullah’s denial which was published in the main media, perception is already made and the picture painted.

And with Anwar’s anger on the election courts throwing out most of the election petitions, the Awakening can be considered as one of the oppositions way of further creating distrust on Najib’s administration.

The only way things can change for the better is when Malaysians at large are awaken from the influence of the oppositions plans and strategies.

Duties of Muslims in the Last Third of Ramadan

The last third of Ramadan is the time for the release from Hell-fire, as the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said in the hadith reported by Salman Al-Farisi:

 "O people, a great and a blessed month is approaching you. In this month there is a night that is better than one thousand months. Allah has made fasting during its daytime obligatory and prayers at night commendable during this month. Whosoever will do a voluntary good deed during this month, it is as if he performed an obligatory good deed at another time and whosoever will perform an obligatory good deed, it is as if he performed seventy obligatory good deeds at another time. This is the month of patience and the reward of patience is Paradise. This is the month of kindness and charity. In this month the believer’s provision is enlarged. Anyone who will give food to a fasting person in this month, it will bring forgiveness for his sins, will save him from the hellfire and he shall have his reward without the person who is fed losing any of his reward… The first third of the month of Ramadan is the time for rahmah (mercy), the second third is for forgiveness, the third is for the release from Hell-fire…"
The duties of the Muslim in this last third of Ramadan is to try his best to perfect his fasting, to avoid any shortcomings or sins that can harm his fasting, to offer more prayers, preferably in jama`ah (congregation), to advance in reading the Qur'an, to make dhikr (remembrance of Allah), to help others to be more committed to religion, to enter i`tikaf if it is possible for him/her, and to remember that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to give extra attention to the last ten days of Ramadan. He could hardly sleep, and his family used also to stay in vigilance with him. The Prophet's generosity in this month and particularly in the last ten days was compared to a fast wind.

We should not miss to remind you and all Muslims to try to settle disputes. It is the best occasion to forgive one another and forget about all enmities and grudges. We should come out of Ramadan in a better shape, understanding, and moral behavior. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) made it clear that "if any Muslim comes out of Ramadan without gaining forgiveness and goodness, he/she is a real loser."

DAP grassroots want CEC re-election, says ROS

DAP should hold its central executive committee (CEC) re-election immediately as this is what the party grassroots want, said Registrar of Societies (ROS) director-general Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman.

In a statement Sunday, he said this was the best decision and which would also show transparency on the part of the party leadership, which had promised the public that it would implement whatever decision announced by ROS.

Abdul Rahman said all matters related to any body was handled in accordance with the Societies Act 1966 and ROS made the decision on the CEC election issue based on the statements given by the parties involved.

He said the Act did not provide the need for ROS to explain the matter to the public, adding that ROS took a humanistic approach with regard to the DAP leadership.

On July 30, ROS ordered DAP to hold a CEC re-election and informed that he was not satisfied with the explanation given by the party on the issue of manipulation of votes during the CEC election.
A day later, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng questioned the legal provisions used by ROS in making the decision.

Lim was also reported to have said that DAP would not abide by the directive given by ROS issued via a notice for the CEC election be reconvened as long as the order was not fully explained.

Muhyiddin says his dog trainer video comment was misquoted

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was only making a general statement and not specifically referring to the YouTube video clip entitled, 'Satu Hari di Hari Raya' when he issued a reminder to the people to refrain from touching on the sensitivities of the Muslim community.

Bernama in its earlier report had said the Deputy Prime Minister's statement Tuesday was referring to the video clip which showed an individual appearing to perform ritual ablutions by washing her hands and feet but then did the same to three dogs.

Muhyiddin in his address at the breaking-of-fast with children from the Anak-Anak Rumah Amal Kasih Bestari in Putrajaya did not also specifically mention that non Muslims had belittled and mocked Islam, as the report suggested.

What he actually said was: "Certain parties have belittled and mocked our religion lately and hopefully it will not persist as to cause tension, as what is happening in other Islamic countries."

The Last Ashrah

The month of Ramadhan enjoys and intrinsic superiority over all the other months of the year. Likewise, it’s last ‘Ashra or ten days are superior to the two earlier ‘Ashras, and laylatul Qadr or the Night of Power, generally, falls in it. That is why, the sacred Prophet (peace & blessings upon him) devoted himself more intensively to prayer and other forms of worship during it and urged others, also, to do the same.

Ayesha (RA) related to us that “the Apostle of Allah (peace & blessings upon him)strove harder and took greater pains to observe prayer etc., during the last ten days of Ramadhan than during the other days.” [Muslim]

It is related by Ayesha (RA) that “when the last ten days of Ramadhan began the Apostle of Allah (peace & blessings upon him) would gird up the loins and keep awake in the nights (i.e., he used to spend the whole of the nights in prayer and worship), and, also, wakened the members of his family (so that they, too, could partake of the blessings of the nights of that month).” [Bukhari]

DAP is ready to sack 753 Indian members.

The fraud case in the DAP’s CEC election made its mark in Malaysia political history. As an opposition party who promotes transparency and always accusing the government as corrupted now can eats their own words. The DAP is now known as a hypocrite and liar.

Through this fraud incident, it is proven that the DAP is the most racist party ever existed in Malaysian political history. This is because investigation found out that the DAP intentionally did not send notices to 753 of its Indian members that is eligible to become a representative in the CEC. Other than that, a recount that was made right after the result has been tallied shows that there are manipulation from the leaders of the DAP to ensure that Zairil Khir Johari win a seat in the committee. This only happens because there are no representatives from the Malay community.

However, DAP’s action to cover up their racist nature through the appointment of Zairil Khir Johari has really shows their true colour as Zairil is not a Malay, but he is 100% Chinese. Why a Chinese is being considered as a Malay except the fact that the DAP is too racist and refuse to put Malays in the leadership of the party. 

Not enough with the lying and cheating, DAP is now proven as a ruthless bunch of thugs when they oppose the ROS’s orders for the DAP to organize another election.

It is certain that the DAP is not ready to organize another election because it means that they have to invite the 753 Indians that has been left out in the previous CEC election. This also means that they have to prepare for any possibilities that Zairil will have the least amount of votes again, similar to what he received in the first count. This can also resulted into Guan Eng and his cronies is oust from the DAP.

To retain their position, the DAP’s will not fight for the rights of their own members that they themselves took. The DAP is willing to sack the 753 Indian members any time soon as long as there are no re-election. It is not impossible that that is what the DAP wants so that all of their members will understand that the DAP is for the Chinese and other races are only needed to cover up their racist agenda of the party. Thus, the Indians and the Malays do not have to contest any of the election in the CEC and they don’t have to attend the meeting. It is enough for them to be the DAP’s coolies and minions in order to gain Indian and Malay votes.

If the DAP is not a racist, gangster, dictator and ruthless, then what is the correct word to define them? It seems like the DAP leaders are the complete evil villains that are filled with hypocrisy, lying and shameless, a sad despicable excuse for a political party in Malaysia. They have no problem letting the world know that they cheated, as long as they are in power.

It is clear that the DAP is a party that does not have any human values and civil. Just imagine if this party becomes the leader of this country, the 14 days tragedy in Malaya will repeat itself, and there’s nothing we can do about it.  

Disconnected Anwar is Disappearing into the Darkness

Anwar Ibrahim is lost in space. He is drifting into the ether on his own, disconnected from the people he once thought loved him, estranged from the coalition machine he failed to unite, and sadly transfixed with GE13 – the election that got away.

Three months on from that election, he cuts a lonely figure as he shouts "It's ridiculous! It's not right" at the judges who have been striking out his court actions against the constituent results of GE13.

No other high profile Pakatan Rakyat figure is interested with his fanciful bid to overturn the result of GE13 via the courts. When he briefly flirted with boycotting Parliament, the 89 Opposition MPs on his own side of the Dewan Rakyat barely paused before they took their seats to debate legislation that is vital for Malaysia. On the other side of the house, it is business as usual, with the Government of Datuk Seri Najib Razak forging ahead with reform of our arcane tax system and the Election Commission.

Looking at where Anwar is now, wallowing in self-pity as he refuses to rule out even more disruptive 'Black 505' rallies, it is easy to brand May 5, 2013 as a pivotal date in his demise as a leader, let alone a future Prime Minister. But you really need to go further back to another even more important date to see where it really went wrong for Anwar.

That date was January 9, 2012, the date on which he was acquitted on the Sodomy II charges. That event is key because it was then that Anwar's victim persona lost its allure. Previously, journalists had fawned on him, detailing his suffering in sympathetic prose. It gave Anwar the chance to brand his homeland an "oppressive regime" and speak of the need for a "Malaysian Spring".

But in time, stripped of his protective shroud of victimhood, voters started to ask more probing questions about his character, his ability to pull together his disparate coalition, his lack of a manifesto or a shadow cabinet, his personal wealth and his past as a Finance Minister, and his role in Bersih 3.0. Suffice to say Anwar probably had a better time as leader of Pakatan Rakyat before January 9 than he has since.

And let's look at the answers to some of those questions. His role as a unifying force of PKR-DAP-PAS was exposed more than anything by the hudud saga. While PAS and DA slogged it out, Anwar did all he could to remain invisible – after endorsing hudud and then announcing that PKR did not join with him. Brave, interventionist leadership was never his thing. No wonder the "Hadi for PM" sideshow was allowed to run its course.

The same problem made a common policy framework impossible and hence the incredible delay for a pre-election manifesto. We never did get a shadow cabinet.

And still haven't.

There remain enough lurking questions about his personal fortune, personal conduct and time as Finance Minister to stop him being credible enough to ask tough questions of the Government's conduct.

And Bersih 3.0 exposed him at his very worst – allegedly cajoling the masses over the barricades of a demonstration that turned violent. It was a day that left him with "questions to answer".

Perhaps the most surprising decision by Anwar since GE13 was his declaration that he will stay on as de facto Opposition leader having previously promised to quit politics. This was a curious call, given his lacklustre performance since May 5. He looks like a man who simply doesn't care for the future.

It all could have been so different. Anwar could have emerged from making gains at GE13 stronger and he could have created his shadow cabinet and strode into the Dewan Rakyat ready to take the fight to BN. But he didn't. He couldn't.

Perhaps another September crossover pledge is in the offing. Perhaps the old Anwar will return.

But likely not. Anwar remains lost in space and there is no sign that he won't just keeping drifting off into the distance.

Laylatul Qadr - The Night Of Power

Laylatul Qadr is the crowning glory of the holy month of Ramadhaan. It is associated with the sending down of the Qur’an Majeed, the last Book of Allah on His last Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), for the guidance of mankind. The Qur’an Majeed describes this Night.

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ ٱلْقَدْرِ
وَمَآ أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ
لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ
تَنَزَّلُ ٱلْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَٱلرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ
سَلاَمٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ ٱلْفَجْرِ

“We have indeed revealed this (message) in the Night of Power: And what will explain to you what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the Angels and the Spirit (Jibraeel) by Allah’s permission, on every errand: Peace! This until the rise of Morn!” (Surah 97)

The Night of Power is the night of spiritual bliss. Our Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said concerning Ramadhaan:
“Verily this month has come to you; and therein is a night which is better than a thousand Months. Whosoever is deprived of it, is deprived of all good; and none is deprived of its good except a totally unfortunate person”. (Ibn Majah)
“Whosoever stands up (in prayer) at the Night of Power out of faith and hopeful of reward, all his past sins will be forgiven.”

Better than a thousand months
A thousand months are equivalent to 83 years and 4 months. Fortunate is the person who spends this night in prayer. The man or woman, who prays for the whole night during this Night, will deserve blessings and reward for the period as if he or she had been praying for eighty three years and four months consecutively. Since the Night of Power is better than one thousand months no one can actually measure the extent as to how much better it is.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Laylatul Qadr has been bestowed by Allah to my Ummah (People). It was not given to any people before this.” (Dur-Mansoor).
How manifest and replete the special bounties and mercies of Allah Ta’ala are upon this Ummat is quite really beyond imagination. It will therefore be extremely foolish to allow ourselves to be deprived of these great blessings at the expense of sheer laziness and a few hours of extra sleep.

Which Night is it?
Although there are different reports in different traditions regarding the exact night, it is almost unanimous that the blessed night occurs in one of the last ten nights of Ramadhaan and more probably in one of the last ten odd nights i.e. 2lst, 23rd, 25th 27th or 29th night.

The popular opinion is, however, in favour of the 27th Night of Ramadhaan but that is not absolutely certain. The traditions indicate that it is to be sought in one of the last ten nights and preferably in the last three odd nights. It was therefore the practice of the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and his companions to make I’tikaaf in the Mosque for the whole time offering Divine service during the last ten days of Ramadhaan.

Hazrath Aisha (Radhiallaahu Anha) reported that the Apostle of Allah said: “Search for the Blessed Night in the odd (nights) from the last ten (nights) of Ramadhaan” (Bukhari).
Hazrath Aisha has narrated another saying:

“I asked: O Messenger of Allah! Tell me if I were to find a Night of Power, what should I recite therein?” Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) advised her to recite:
Al-laa-hum-ma in-na-ka ‘afoow-wan tu-hib-bul-’af wa fa-fu ‘an-ni.
O Allah! You are Forgiving, You love forgiveness, so forgive me. (Bukhari).

Special attention should therefore be given to the excessive recitation of this dua on the blessed night. Furthermore one may engage in lengthy rakaats of Tahajjud salaat, Tilaawat of the Qur’an, Dua, Zikr, etc.

The worship and the vigil of the Night of Power are a treat to the soul. The heart tends to melt into tears of heartfelt gratitude. The body is in a state of angelic ecstasy The soul strives to reach nearer to Almighty Allah. In this holy month of Ramadhaan let us strive to seek the Night of Power and its bliss. May Allah reward us with His bountiful blessings. Ameen.

FUTURE PLAN: Outgoing chief Rosnah likely to stand as No. 2 in Wanita polls

Outgoing  Puteri Umno chief Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin is likely to be the running mate of Wanita chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Jalil in the party election.

However, Rosnah, who was earlier speculated to contest a seat in the Umno supreme council and Wanita Umno executive council, was believed to have delayed her announcement on the matter after receiving advice from several circles in Wanita and Puteri.

A Wanita Umno insider, nonetheless, insisted that Rosnah had pledged her support to Shahrizat and had been offered to back the latter as her No. 2.

"Rosnah had came to us and expressed support for Shahrizat. She had, however, intended to contest the executive councillor post in the senior wing.

"But we advised Rosnah to support Shahrizat as her possible deputy in Wanita Umno since she is a member of the cabinet and could act as a senior representative in the government."

The source said Rosnah fit the bill of a senior Wanita Umno leader as she was a "working woman, a mother and a wife". Rosnah's impending departure from Puteri Umno had also led to a three-way contest for the wing's top post.

Sources in Puteri Umno had named deputy chief Shahanim Mohd Yusoff and two exco members, Jamilah Hanim Othman and Mas Ermieyati Samsudin, as candidates to replace Rosnah.

Yesterday, Mas Ermieyati confirmed her candidacy and said Jamilah was running for the post as well.
Mas Ermieyati, who is also Malacca Puteri chief, said she had sought the "blessing" of the Malacca Umno state liaison committee and Rosnah to contest the post over a month ago.

"I want to continue serving my wing in a bigger capacity and will contest in the spirit of democracy."
Sources said Mas Ermieyati was expected to appeal to the rural segment of Puteri Umno members and had stronger grassroots support after winning the Masjid Tanah parliamentary seat recently.

Meanwhile, Jamilah Hanim was known to be a vocal and opinionated leader in contrast to the popular perception that Puteri Umno members were demurred and accommodating.

Known as "Jamie" among her peers, the Petaling Jaya Selatan Puteri chief had always been regarded as a fair player who would listen to everybody.
"Jamilah has always been seen as someone that the public can easily relate to, especially among the youth," a close aide said.

Shahanim, a former financial executive, had been on a steady rise ever since she was first appointed as the Kedah Puteri chief in 2004.

Five years later, she was elected as the wing's second-in-command and worked closely with Rosnah to lift Puteri's standing within Umno.

"It has always been expected that Shahanim would offer herself to contest the post once Rosnah has been automatically absorbed into Wanita Umno at the age of 41," said a source close to her.

"Many have noted Shahanim's strong managerial skills which would boost the party if she is elected."
The race for the wing's No.2 leadership is also heating up, as Shahanim prepares to vacate her deputy post. The seat is expected to be contested between Pandan Puteri chief Zahida Zarik Khan and Kulim Puteri chief and first-term assemblyman for Bandar Baru, Datin Norsabrina Mohd Noor.

Election Petition: Anwar Is Getting Crazier

After he failed to challenge the result of the 13th general election through street demonstration, Anwar seems to have lost his way to plan the next step of his mission. Anwar reluctantly have to admit his defeat and accept Barisan Nasional won the election. He was the one who took an oath even if his minions were hoping that he would lead a rebellion to “free” the country. What happens in this few months has really made Anwar Ibrahim looks like a fool.

To ensure that his name is not washed away in the Malaysian political tide, Anwar is hoping that the election petition that is filed by the Pakatan Rakyat candidate can give them a little publicity. This is because, Anwar himself is well informed that the petitioned that he submitted is baseless and will be thrown out by the court.
If the petitioned fail, it will gave them a new bullet to pressure the government, the court and anything else that they can attack. This is what happening where Anwar is carrying the character as the Opposition Leader and his petitioned is thrown out.

The high cost of the petitioned helps Anwar to act effectively. It also gave them a chance to collect funds. On the 28th June 2013, Anwar organized a dinner to collect funds for the cause. The total cost for the events is estimated at RM 1.5 million.
On the 23rd of July the petition is filed by two PKR candidates from Penang- Abdul Halim Hussain (Dun Teluk Bahang) and Muhammad Baktiar Wan Chik (Parliament Balik Pulau) was thrown out by the Penang High Court. They were both defeated by BN candidate and were ordered to pay the cost fee to the BN candidate.
Judge Hadariah Syed Ismail said that both of them were made to pay the fine as both of them failed to follow the Election Petition Rule 1954.
Last week, PAS candidate from Titiwangsa, Ahmad Zamri Asa’ad Khuzaimi was ordered to pay RM 40,000 to the SPR and RM 30,000 to his opponent when his petition was thrown out in Kuala Lumpur.
In Anwar script he accuses the Judge as crazy and illogical because the judgement was made on the basis of technicality.

 It seems that Anwar forgot that he himself was acquitted few times because of technicality. It seems that Anwar Ibrahim forgot about his sodomy cases and how he is still a free man.
Because of that, if Anwar Ibrahim opposed the judgement that was made on the basis of technicality, then Anwar should have taken the same approach with his sodomy cases.
We understand that people who are crazy about something cannot think straight. As an actor, Anwar knows that he do not have to debate on the facts but it is enough if he would play his character effectively. And if that is achieved, all of his supporters will forgot the facts that it is a lie and focus on the persona which is named Anwar Ibrahim.
The conclusion, Anwar lived on publicity, without publicity, he will surely dies. The truth is, the general election petitioned and acting, Anwar only does it for publicity and not more than that. RM 1.5 million is not a problem for him. The actual intention is to collect fund for himself not for his party or his supporters.

DAP’s Vision: Christianity or Communism?

We all know that the DAP has always looked up to the communist insurgents in Malaya and considers them as heroes. The said party also wants to bring back Chin Peng by saying that the communist threat has already passed. To justify their action, the DAP also denied the history of Malaysia by creating stories that favours the communist. They even distribute flyers that say the communist insurgents were part of the independence movement in Malaya. In the same time, they plant the seed of distrust for the government to the people of Malaysia by saying that the current government are denying the contribution of the communist insurgent because of racial policies.
The Chinese who are famous for their racism believe the stories told by the DAP. Many of them were direct descendants of these communist terrorist.  

 When the Chinese community oppose the National School and opt to go to Chinese National School, the condition became much worst because the Chinese School do not emphasize on the History subject. We are also doubtful whether the subjects are taught the same way as it is taught in national schools. Does it carry the aspiration of the nation or the aspiration of the communist?

 Now, the product of these Chinese Schools are leaving their schools and entering adulthood while carrying with them the hatred of Malays and doubting the government. These are the people that we see challenging and provoking Islam and the Malays in the internet. Almost every day there are individuals who intentionally post provocative statements so that the Malays will stand up and retaliate. What is more disgusting is the fact that they are currently asking the Indians to do the same.

Not only that, they are willing to give a lot of money to produce a movie about the heroism of communist during the 14 days of terror that all of us Malaysians have to endure. The movie titled “The New Village” are so controversial and shows that the communist laid their lives for Malayan independence. We believe, many of the students from Chinese Schools has no idea on the truth and believe everything that is said and portrayed in the film is true. They were indoctrinated by their parents and teachers in their Chinese Schools. Plus, the DAP support for the communist is also a factor.

However, it is weird that the DAP is also upholding the aspiration of the Christians. The DAP Christian agenda is no longer a secret as everyone knows the mission of the DAP to abolish the clause which states the word Islam as the religion of the country in the constitution. As a replacement, Christianity will be the official religion of the country and this particular plan is being worked out in Subang Jaya and also Pulau Pinang. A DAP program video that is attended by Christian priest who vowed to ensure that Malaysia will become a Christian nation has also went viral. DAP is also the main party who pushed the government to agree with the usage of the word “Allah” in the Malay version of the Bible.

We consider that this is weird as Christian and Communism are two different worlds all together. The values and faith of Christians are not in line with Communism that puts everyone as the same, and only the ruler or party leader will have absolute power. Meanwhile Christian believes in moral and theological values.

Thus, for the DAP, to be awed by the Communist while still holding to their Christian shows that the DAP themselves do not understand their own mission. Maybe because they are too ‘obsessed’ with their own race and they hate the Islamic faith and the Malay community, the DAP never take any time off to look back and understand their own struggle.

We are sure that the DAP do not know the history of Communism in Malaysia and all of its detail. They also do not understand Christianity fully. The DAP as most Chinese youth in Malaysia can only talk about shallow issues such as money, promotion, marketing and also entertainment. It is proven that the DAP cannot be asked to participate in an intellectual discourse as their intelligence are not that high. They do not want to dissect the real meaning, the ideology, the philosophy and history.

 The truth is how we can hope that all these Chinese youngsters to think intellectually if the leader that they worship is the Bafoon Lim Guan Eng himself.  In an attempt to defend the “New Village” movie, Lim Guan Eng revealed that he does not understand the relationship between Malaysia and China that was pioneered by Tun Abdul Razak when he compared the act of the legendary former PM to the action of Malaysia opposing communism.

Guan Eng clearly do not know the meaning of the 1989 peace treaty between the government and the PKM when they considered it as the acceptance of communism. In fact the treaty was to show that the communist had surrendered to the government without any terms.

This is the consequences If you are too emotion addressing an issue. And that is why DAP is a party that is full of hatred. To the DAP, Christianity, Communism and everything else is permitted as long as it is against the religion of Islam and Malay.

If DAP is at the helm of this nation, say our goodbyes to the peace and stability of the country. The nation will not be peaceful or harmonious instead chaos will reign supreme. We want all the future generation to study history so that it can be a reference so that no mistake will be made.

 It’s been a while seems the Chinese accept the fact that their history starts from the arrival of their ancestors to mine the quarry. Only by realizing this, they will be able their hatred towards the country, the peoples and also themselves.

Umno, BN Must Be Preferred By Urban Community, Says Najib

Effective methods should be formulated to restore the urban community's confidence in the Barisan Nasional (BN) and Umno to make them their parties of choice, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

The Prime Minister said BN and Umno leaders and members should work hard to translate their strength as the only parties that could develop the economy while reminding the people that they had fought to liberate the country.

Prompted by the strong message sent by the people during the 13th general election, he said in order to win back the hearts of urban dwellers, major problems like crimes, corruption, traffic snarls and housing prices should be addressed.

"Apart from the process of improving weaknesses in the party and acknowledging mistakes, we should also have the humility to identify problems of the urban community which should be resolved to their satisfaction," he said when breaking fast with Federal Territories BN and Umno members at the Muadz Al-Jabbar Mosque here Wednesday night.

Najib, who is also Umno president and BN chairman, said the government was committed to curbing corruption and crime to ensure that the people were free from threats of serious crimes, snatch thefts and burglaries.

He also said that the government would ensure that the people, whether from low or high-income groups, could benefit from an efficient public transportation system to reduce traffic congestion. "As in the cities of London and New York, even those in the high-income group use public transport. If we can get to that level, we can give satisfaction to the people," he said.

The Prime Minister said the government would also build 85,000 affordable housing units in the range of RM150,000 to RM300,000 in the Federal Territories within five years to meet the demand of urban dwellers. Meanwhile, Najib called on Muslims to be grateful as they were able to fast in a peaceful atmosphere compared to other fellow Muslims in strife-torn Islamic countries.

At the event, Najib also handed out Aidilfitri aid and 'duit raya' to 1,500 orphans, people with disabilities, the poor and single mothers from the Setiawangsa parliamentary constituency.

He later joined the congregation in performing the Maghrib, Isyak and tarawih prayers.

Also present were Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib, Federal Territories Umno Liasion Committee deputy chairman Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin and Member of Parliament for Setiawangsa Datuk Ahmad Fauzi Zahari.
