Malaysiakini: Sept 13 makes 5 and 5 signifies FREEDOM!

On 9-9-08, I blogged about the number 13. As at that date, the recurring number of times was at 4 and this number is inauspicious to many, especially the Chinese.

To recount the number of 13s occurring in Malaysia whereby each of them being significant in nature, let's revise:

1. May 13

2. Badawi's favourite number is 13

3. There are 13 UMNO divisions in Penang (where the remake of Wag the Dog heightens)

4. There are 13 component parties in BN

5. September 13 

To many numerologists, 5 represents FREEDOM. Is this what's in store for all of us, anak Bangsa Malaysia? Yes, it will be FREEDOM for us all.

Meanwhile, from Malaysiakini:

Two candlelight vigils will be held tonight to protest the arrest of three individuals under the draconian Internal Security Act, which allows for detention without trial.

Opposition party DAP, whose parliamentarian Teresa Kok was nabbed late last night, is holding a vigil outside its headquarters in Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya at 7.30pm. 

According to the DAP, the vigil is to express “solidarity” with the ISA detainees.

Meanwhile, another vigil is being planned at 8.30pm outside the Bukit Aman national police headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

The ‘Remember Sept 13' vigil, which is being organised by the Anti-ISA Movement (GMI), will take place at the entrance of the police headquarters.

“Let's fight for a better Malaysia without ISA,” said GMI in a press release issued early this morning.

The three were arrested in separate operations consisting of police teams from Bukit Aman in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Details still sketchy

Controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin, who has targeted government figures on his website Malaysia Today, was the first to be taken into custody at 1.10pm.

Meanwhile Kok, the Selangor senior state executive councillor and Seputeh parliamentarian, wasarrested at 11.18pm just outside her condominium after attending a Mooncake festival at her constituency office.

While details are sketchy, Kok has been defending herself against allegations that she complained about the noise of morning prayers at a mosque in her state seat of Kinrara. She has said the accusation is "preposterous".

Another mosque which was caught in the azan controversy, Masjid Kota Damansara, has clarified to Malaysiakini that a damaged amplifier had resulted in the calls to prayers to be made without the aid of a PA system

The Courage to Build a New Malaysia.

The year is 2008. This is the year most Malaysians finally woke up from a deep slumber. Most Malaysians were just too busy earning their living and building up their lives to take notice that times have changed and the idealism spouted by our founding Fathers have still not been accomplished for this country even today.

It was not so long ago in 1957 and then for our fellow East Malaysians in 1963 when the ideals and dreams preached by the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj (Bapa Kemerdekaan and Bapa Malaysia) for Malaysia were first announced and was greeted with joy in the hearts and minds of all Malaysians. The late Tunku Abdul Rahman had a dream and ideals, just like Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and many others including the prophets over the history of mankind.

Many a times such dreams were hijacked and led astray under the guise of nationalistic, racist and religious idealism by so called politicians and self declared and appointed righteous and religious persons (Little Napoleons). Individuals who have risen to continue some of such idealisms are gagged, isolated, bankcrupted, blasphemied, rehabilitated or worst jailed, for it is deemed not in consonance with the dreams and idealism of the elected parties agendas.

Laws are legislated and passed at whim in Parliament to change the idealism of the Supreme Law of the Land (The Malaysian Constitution) and to cloak such party and individual agendas. It is true, Malaysia, conforms to the democratic process as practiced by most western countries in elections (even though tainted but unproven). But once given the trust to be elected as a leader or representative of the people, party and individual idealism overtook national idealism, and The Jeykll and Hyde personality emerged to be repeated over and over again at each and every election and by-election.

Malaysians have being led astray for so long, that what is right is blurred, what is wrong is tolerated, what is evil is condoned, what is fair is pouted as unfair, what is immoral becomes moral and corruption and close one eye need to become a part of our accepted daily lives. Jealousy, hatred, greed, racism, plundering and satanism starts to breed in Malaysian minds, and brothers, friends and fellow Malaysians were looked upon as enemies or as inferior human beings. Once a while, such nets were cast ashore to include anything to do with other countries or other races which do not belong to one's own race or religious beliefs.

The minds and souls of Malaysians are so polluted and poisoned for so many years that it seems that Malaysia is the only all correct country and we should rule the world by our way. Examples of countries which follows Malaysia or is it we following them are, such as North Korea, Zimbabwe and Israel. What justifications can you tell your own generations or future Malaysian generations that what you are doing to fellow mankind and more so to your own fellow Malaysians that it is righteous and correct, when, it is at the expense and sufferings of your own human kind and fellow Malaysians?

Can you say to them I did it to follow the orders and teachings of God or party political agendas? Who gave you such inspirations and idealism? Do not absolve your own wicked mind and greed nor take a ride on someone else wicked mind and greed. Do not pick and choose in the Books of God nor the man-made laws to justify or suit your own twisted and idealistic minds. You can fool others due to their ignorance or emotions at some time but you can't fool forever a man's conscience nor your own children or hopefully one day your own when such enlightenment comes to you.

The courage to change things which are not right in Malaysia nor achieve the ideals of the Founding Fathers is not impossible. Most Malaysians have woken up to the fact that the future is going to be determined by it's own citizens thru their own conscience guided by their own religious beliefs to live a harmonious and productive life of correctness and not the type of political, racial or religious correctness as preached.

Parties and their own agendas do not take priority over the Founding Fathers ideals and hopes of all Malaysians. Religion and principles are as a guide to your own conscience to make sure whoever is the leader do not lead Malaysians nor society astray.

For in the end, what is just and right should surely overule anything else for any leader or their party agendas.

Does your Representative of the People (Wakil Rakyat) or You! have the courage?
