Azam & Tekad Tahun Baru 2012

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP


Kita baru sahaja melangkah ke Tahun Baru Hijrah 1433 . Dalam tak sampai 32 jam lagi Tahun Masihi 2012 akan menjelma. Tentunya seperti amalan setiap tahun, ramai yang berazam dari sebesar ingin mencapai kejayaan tertinggi hinggalah sekecil ingin menurunkan berat badan atau ingin berazam kurangkan tidur dan bermalas-malas. Namun, amati betul-betul azam kita selama ini. Adakah ia hanya retorik mengikut adat setiap tahun ataupun satu tekad yang kita pandang serius untuk mencapainya. Kitalah penentu. Kitalah hakim.
Namun harus diingat, azam dengan tekad yang sebenar perlu ada. Jangan jadikan ia hanya mainan mulut. Lihat sahaja nanti di media-media sosial, disebalik ucapan tahun baru akan terselit juga azam-azam masing-masing. Buat tahun 2012 ini, jadikanlah azam kita semua satu tekad dengan niat sebenar-benarnya untuk mencapainya. Jangan lupa, azam ini perlulah yang positif.
Ingatlah Firman Allah dalam Al-Qur’an yang mafhumnya :
“….Sesungguhn“….Sesungguhnya Allah tidak akan mengubah nasib sesuatu kaum itu sehingga mereka sendiri mengubah nasib mereka….” (Ar-Ra’du:11)ya Allah tidak akan mengubah nasib sesuatu kaum itu sehingga mereka sendiri mengubah nasib mereka….” (Ar-Ra’du:11)
Oleh itu, sebelum bertekad untuk mencapai azam yang besar dan mega, mulakanlah dengan keazaman untuk meningkatkan dan memperbetulkan sifat kita dahulu. Hanya dengan ini azam-azam lain pasti terlaksana. Mulakanlah dengan niat untuk menjadi Hamba Allah yang terbaik dan hebat. Susuli pula dengan amalan-amalan yang sebaik-baiknya. Hijrahlah dari keadaan dan perangai yang tidak baik kepada yang lebih baik. Iringi dengan doa’, usaha dan tawakkal kepada Allah Ta’ala. Pasti dengan izin Allah, azam kita yang hanya untuk memperbaiki diri dan berIslah kepadaNya akan menjadi pemangkin kita untuk mencapai kejayaan dalam berkeluarga, berkerjaya, bermasyarakat dan seterusnya bernegara. Semua itu perlu bermula dari DIRI kerana “ATTITUDE” itu 100% namun “FEAR of GOD” adalah 101 %.
Selamat berazam dan bertekad pada Tahun 2012 … Moga kita bukan sahaja sekadar HIDUP,  tetapi menjadi yang TERBAIK dan BERJAYA disisi ALLAH. Moga kita semua mendapat Rahman dan Raheem ALLAH sentiasa. Wallahu a’lam

Historical Reconstruction Again?

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP


By Farish A Noor

5 September 2011
And so, for reasons that are both complex and irritating, the past is being dragged into the present yet again; while we Malaysians bury our heads in the sand and neglect the future. By now most of us will be familiar with yet another controversy-in-a-teacup that has grabbed the headlines: namely the question of whether the events that took place during the attack on the police outpost in Bukit Kepong ought to be remembered as a historic event in the Malayan struggle for independence.
Unfortunately for all parties concerned it seems that the issue has been hijacked by politics and politicians yet again, as is wont to happen in Malaysia on a daily basis almost. More worrying still is how the manifold aspects of this event have been taken up selectively by different parties and actors to further their own arguments, while neglecting to look at the wider context against which the event took place. It is almost impossible to be truly objective when it comes to the writing and reading of history, and perhaps we can do away with that pretense. But for now perhaps some marginal notes on the matter might come in useful to clear the air a bit.

PAS Election: Picking the perfect No. 2

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

Article written by Joceline Tan of The Star dated May 15, 2011.

The contest for the post of PAS deputy president picks up pace as the party struggles to find the perfect deputy to complement their president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang.
DATUK Seri Hadi Awang has been looking a little more modern ever since he ditched his old-fashioned metal-rims for trendy retro-style spectacles.

He also looks a little slimmer now that he is watching his diet following a mild stroke last year. His habit of downing heavy meals after the late night ceramah is a thing of the past.

He has stopped riding horses but still indulges in his favourite pastime, angling. Recently, he caught a whopper of a fish during a trip to Tasik Kenyir. It was a beautiful ikan temoleh that was almost as long as his torso and he held it up like a proud father.

Hadi is looking quite good – physically, that is. Morally, too, he is up there. He is respected as a theologian with not a whiff of scandal to his name and he is still living in that old kampung house by the Rusila Mosque where his religious lectures are amplified from the tallest minaret on Fridays.

But there are rumblings on the ground about his leadership of PAS – he is too provincial, not political enough, lacks economic know-how and flip-flops on issues. His standing as an ulama is unrivalled but, increasingly, more and more people have doubts that he is Prime Minister material.

However, Hadi is on course to retain the PAS presidency which he has held since the 2002 death of the far more politically-savvy Datuk Fadzil Noor. Despite such shortcomings, he is still PAS’ leading choice for president.

Recently, the party’s Bukit Bintang division caused a stir when it nominated Kelantan politician Datuk Husam Musa for the top post. It upset people in the party, including Husam, who quickly said he was not qualified for the post.

PAS will vote for a new leadership line-up on June 3.

Sedikit Komen PRN Sarawak ke-10 2011

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

Setelah hampir sebulan tidak dapat kemaskini blok Dunia Mendan dek kerana kekangan tugas dan PRN Sarawak, disertakan beberapa statistik ringkas yang dikemaskini dari Saudara Ibrahim Harun.

Seperti dijangka, BN memenangi lebih dari 2/3 kerusi DUN Sarawak. Saya sendiri meramalkan Pakatan Rakyat serta parti-parti Oposisi yang lain akan menang sekitar 15 kerusi DUN. Ini sebenarnya mengambil kira pelbagai aspek luaran dan dalaman sewaktu PRN Sarawak 2011. 
Keseluruhan Keputusan Secara Ringkas :

BN                  55 Kerusi (372379)
KEADILAN         3  Kerusi  (117100)
DAP                12  Kerusi (134847)
PAS                 0  Kerusi   (9719)
SNAP               0  (15663)
PCM                 0  (2895)
Bebas              1  (20064)

BN memperolehi 372379 undi manakala parti-parti Oposisi memperolehi 3000288. Ini bermakna BN hanya mendapat 56 % undi manakala Oposisi memperolehi 44 %. Ini satu jumlah yang mengejutkan jika diambil kira keadaan kewangan, logistik, media yang nyata amat mencabar kepada Oposisi.

Walaubagaimanapun 44 % undi popular buat Oposisi itu hanya diterjemahkan kepada 21.4 % kerus DUN (16 kerusi). Penggunaan sistem pilihanraya berasaskan First-Past-The-Post ternyata tidak menggambarkan sokongan secara keseluruhannya kerana jika kita menggunakan kadah pilihanraya secara Propositional Representative, Oposisi akan memperoleh 31 kerusi DUN.

Raikanlah demokrasi. Tahniah bagi yang menang, jangan lupa janji yang ditabur dan amanah yang bakal dipikul. Ingatlah Hadith Rasullullah yang mafhumnya "Tidak akan merasa bau syurga seseorang pemimpin yang ketika matinya dalam keadaan menipu mereka yang dipimpinnya". Jawatan sebagai ADUN bukan satu nikmat, tetapi satu amanah yang amat berat.

Citizens to Pendatangs- Frogs on a slow boil

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

By Ice Cream Seller
I am no science buff but remember reading about putting frogs in cold water and then slowly putting the water to boil.The frogs (unlike the Perak species) will die as they will be unaware of the change in temperature that will ultimately prove fatal.

Dear Malaysian brethren of whatever ilk - we will suffer the same fate as the innocent frogs if we let the country spiral to another Iran or Pakistan.

I am - in today's parlance - a 3rd generation pendatang. Lets call it GENPENTIGA - Generasi Pendatang Tiga. I suppose it can't be that bad when a GENPENDUA became PM for 22 years. But then he metamorphosed into a Malay and cut his Indian roots - only to go back to Kerala recently to see if there were any offshoots, I suppose, or perhaps some trait of mortality dictated that he visit his roots in his autumn days.

Dear Leader of the Opposition, form a shadow Cabinet pronto, I say.

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP


Azzem Ambalam / The Malaysian Insider   
February 24, 2011
REPRINT Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has shot down a challenge from the Prime Minister Najib Razak for him to name a Shadow Cabinet.
“There (is) no need for a shadow Cabinet, because we already have our parliamentary committees which oversee aspects of governance from the PM’s department to other ministries,” he was quoted as telling reporters yesterday.
However, I strongly disagree. In any parliamentary democracy, there is a government and there is an opposition. The role of government is written in black and white and the opposition’s job is to provide a check and balance to the government of the day.
In Malaysia, it is easier said than done, due to our being an almost one-party state for the greater part since independence. Over the years in Malaysia, the role of the opposition has become somewhat ambiguous, with many people not really knowing or understanding the proper role of an opposition.
One way to formalise and consolidate the role of the opposition is via a shadow Cabinet, whereupon the leader of opposition is officially mandated to appoint his own team of ministers to shadow the actual Cabinet. Basically, every government minister will be shadowed by his opposite from the opposition benches.
The role of the shadow ministers will be to keep tabs on their respective counterparts and also come up with appropriate and suitable alternative policies. A shadow Cabinet will in turn keep the opposition on their toes; most importantly, it will be an excellent platform to put forward their own ideas and policies into the forefront.
A point to consider is the current Klang Valley MRT fiasco; we have the opposition up in arms crying foul on this and that. It is their job to do so, period. But don’t you think it will be more effective and practical if there was a shadow minister to keep tabs on this issue, come up with alternative plans and promote them instead.
The situation now is that, everyone is jumping up and down with their five sen worth, but no one is suggesting any concrete alternative or solution to anything. Where is the opposition “parliamentary committee” in charge of public transportation in this?
When an opposition goes around town saying they are a government in waiting, they have to substantiate that sort of rhetoric with facts and solid action. They have to show us what they have to offer, how they will govern and what sort of policies they have to offer and prove to the voters they are capable of better governance compared to the government of the day.
Running a country is more than scrapping the ISA, UUCA, OSA, Printing and Publications Acts, eradicating corruption, increasing bonuses for civil servants and creating racial unity; granted those are all important issues.
What matters more to the man on the street are more down to earth bread and butter issues such as the state of the economy, public transportation, crime, healthcare, education, inflation, employment, price of basic food items, taxation rates, urban development, rural development and the list goes on and on.
But we don’t really know where the opposition stands on these basic issues, do we? It is one thing to promise the moon and the stars, but for starters, they can maybe start telling us how they intend to actually go about delivering it.
I suggest that members of the shadow Cabinet also be given a monthly salary by the state to further formalise their roles as shadow ministers and as recognition on the importance of their posts.
To further underscore the importance and seriousness of a shadow Cabinet, shadow ministers will have to do this full-time and forgo any other income generating commitments they may have. Public service is serious business and we cannot leave any room for conflicts of interest.
I further suggest since we follow the Westminster parliamentary system, we also follow the UK format of a shadow Cabinet for now. Give it a few years to stew and we can eventually modify the system to suit Malaysia better.
I am not suggesting we ape the UK in everything we do, but let us follow a system that works first and then slowly adapt it to our own local requirements.
Dear Leader of the Opposition, form a shadow Cabinet pronto, I say.

The Dalglish Effect

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

Liverpool owner John W Henry says Roy Hodgson's style of football was not suited to the club and feels there was no better man than Kenny Dalglish to take them forwards.



Under Hodgson, Liverpool endured their worst start to a season for almost 60 years and had been battling to stay clear of the relegation zone but, following the interim appointment of Dalglish, now look ready to challenge for a place in the top four.
After two defeats and a draw in his first three games, Dalglish has overseen four successive victories including Sunday's 1-0 win at Chelsea, and Henry is delighted with the improvement in performances.
"We wanted a 'caretaker', and we wanted to change the type of football we were playing," Henry said in the Liverpool Echo. "We wanted it to be a more positive, 'pass and move' philosophy, which would help stabilise the club.
"The team was playing in a way which wasn't suiting the club. It is early days yet, but I don't think we could have made a better choice.
"The fans can see that we are moving forward and that we are making changes. It's positive."
Dalglish has yet to be handed the job on a full-time basis and, as he is still scheduled to depart in the summer, he is still treating his role as temporary.
"I'm only doing what I said I would come in and do, which is help," Dalglish said. "I'll never stand in the way of progress at this football club.
"I have never had a conversation with the owners beyond the conversation I had when I came in. That's where we stand at the moment and until there is more to discuss, that is where we are."
Jamie Carragher said after Sunday's game that he would "obviously love him to be the manager".
Henry added: "Nobody could be more beloved by a set of fans than Kenny, and not just for his accomplishments on the field, but for his work off the field, through some very difficult times for supporters.
"He is unique. I know from talking to Kenny that he has wanted to be in this position for a very long time."

The Religious Pluralism Debate: A Critique By Dr Dzul

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

 Article by YB Dr Zul (MP Kuala Selangor) dated 31 Dec 2010
As the curtain draws to a close for the last year of the first decade in the third millennium, I wanted to just sit back and peruse the many edited writings and commentaries for my book “In Search of a Better Malaysia”. The indulgence was rather short-lived when it dawns on me that I have failed to provide any commentary on an equally troubling acrimonious debate that is raging dangerously in the nation. Yes, how could I miss that one?

The PKR Leadership Dilemma

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

By PRABA GANESAN
Guest Writer (Sin Chew Daily)
The PKR is in great danger of losing a bunch of leaders. The party is bleeding and no one has stepped forward to either take responsibility for the exodus or the lack of effective response.
Two things about the average politicians, the ones who build their lives being politicians before statesmen:
1) They don’t bet their careers on uncertainties, and 
(2) They don’t want to be the last one off a sinking ship.

And the average politicians inundate the roster of potential and present leaders in the party.
I’m not taking this opportunity to hurt my colleagues in the party. I’m just saying we have to accept our limitations, but that is the easy part. The harder part is to make all links in the chain strong, not just the ones who appear on banners as star attractions for ceramahs.But to the bleeding first.

The party has been losing belief since the last quarter of 2008. Belief is the core component of opposition politics. When you have no power, you must believe in your ability to affect change with limited access and retain your belief that you will secure power eventually. Otherwise, every day would be an exercise in futility waiting for your idealism to wear down, next press your inevitable exit countdown button.
