The blogger Bigdogdotcom (Zakhir Mohamed), an ally of Mukhriz anak Mahathir, has floated a load of manure by claiming (through unnamed sources in the home ministry) a link between Saudi Arabian writer Hamza Kashgari and the terrorist group Al Qaeda.
Malaysia caved in to Saudi Arabian authoritarianism by seizing Kashgari at the request of Saudi royalty while Kashgari was trying to flee to New Zealand via KL. Big Dog says:
Sources from the Home Ministry said Kashgari has been suspected with linkages to the most wanted global terrorist group, Al Qaeda.
Malaysia takes anti-terrorist activities seriously…
What a load of tripe.
Where’s the magical police parang?
“Kashgari the al Qaeda terrorist” sounds just as contrived as the magical parangs so conveniently found every time police shot dead someone that they claim was supposedly a gangster.
One such “gangster” shot dead was Shah Alam schoolboy Aminulrasyid Amza, killed at 2am after a joyride in his sister’s car. The police chief who claimed that a parang was found in Aminul’s car, and that the boy had links to criminals is now deputy inspector-general (despite making what sounded like a blatant lie).
Now another magical “parang” is being talked about in the form of some supposed “Al Qaeda terrorist” link.
Where there’s bullshit, there’s a stink
For more than 40 years, politicians and police have conned Malaysians about “subversive1 activities”, “anti-national1 activities” and “communist sympathisers”. Most of the time this was to cover up for themselves or dirty politicians, or to create trouble for people they didn’t like.
Musa (the Mattress Man) Hassan, a much-despised former inspector-general, said the Tamil-based activist group Hindraf were “terrorists” linked to the Tamil Tigers of Sri Sanka.
Tamils and terrorism
The only ones terrified of Hindraf were Umno and their lapdog Tamil terrorist S Samy Vellu who thankfully was ousted at the 2008 general election by Dr Michael Jayakumar Devaraj of the socialist party. Surprise! In mid-2011 Dr Devaraj and five other socialist party members are arrested and suspicious policemen say suspicious things, that the six were supposedly trying to “revive communism and communist ideology”.
They were only trying to get people to attend the June 9 Bersih rally for clean elections. But that amounts to terrorism: because dirty politicians are terrified of facing clean elections.
‘Democrats’ who praise communists
Even though the only communists left in power are in China, Cuba, North Korea and parts of India, Mahathir (Bapa Mukhriz) Mahathir, has high praise for communist ways.
Malaysians who believe in democracy are jailed then labelled as “communist” or “subversive”; the people responsbile, who subverted Malaysian democracy into a party machine like those in communist countries, proudly call themselves “democrats” instead.
These days even the BBC (one eye on the FCO grant, another on frigate and fighter jet sales, possibly) have become true believers in the economic theories of a man they would have once called to account for crime against humanities. Big money2 has a way of being highly convincing.
Ambiga and Kashgari: insults to Islam?
Big Dog also takes a swipe at Ambiga Sreenivasan, even though she’s got nothing to do with Kashgari. But because she defended the rights of Lina Joy to choose her own religion, and the right of gay people to hold public meetings, Big Dog finds it convenient to lump Kashgari and Ambiga together as enemies of Islam.
Here’s what blogger Syed Akhbar Ali said:
Please look at the Quran. The Quran gives us simple guidance how to handle insults. [3:111] They can never harm you, beyond insulting you. If they fight you, they will turn around and flee. They can never win.
No where does the Quran say that if you feel insulted, then you should arrest people, kill people or pick fights with people who you think have insulted you.
Syed Akbar also questions home minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein’s role in Kashgari’s arrest:
So there’s something in common between Big Dog (loyal supporter of Mukhriz anak Mahathir), the Malaysian police (anjing Mahathir or anjing Umno as they have been called) and Hishammuddin Tun Hussein (a lapdog of the Saudis, it appears).
A mangy bunch of mutts3, one might say.
1 Long ago, I was labelled “subversive” (code for people who reject Umno’s might-is-right) and anti-national (code for anti-Malay, which is code for anti-Ketuanan Umno). MCA said I was anti-Chinese. Both parties banned me from their newspapers. Gerakan promptly decided to treat me as a beggar. That’s what Malaysia, Penang Chinese, politicians and policemen will do for you. Pfft.
