…ANWAR IBRAHIM WAS SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS JAIL FOR SODOMY, BUT DAP DIDN’T CARE ABOUT IT AND HOW THE DAP AND PAS ARE TWO PARTIES WITH CONFLICTING INTERESTS AND GOALS WITH ONE TRYING TO ESTABLISH A SECULAR STATE WHILE THE OTHER AN ISLAMIC ONE.
By Mansor Puteh
I can say I know Balakong quiet well; I live nearby this area. It is not quiet and also not well. By right it does not need anyone to represent it in parliament or the state assembly. There is anarchy here in more ways than one.
But the laws of the land say they have to include this area for political parties to put their men to get the votes to represent them in parliament and the state assembly.
For so long Balakong and also Serdang had been Barisan Nasional areas.
But for the last two general elections they had fallen to the DAP or Pakatan Rakyat.
But since DAP took over Balakong especially, this area has not seen any development; it is one of the dirtiest areas in Selangor.
It is an industrial area, albeit of the small kind, and the roads are littered with potholes and there are also many bumps, a reflection on how careless the lorry drivers are and also the civilian motorists are, too.
Here along the main roads and some other places around them one can see stickers everywhere. The public car parks had their ticket meters torn down. Even the public phones are not working or have been stolen.
Most of the streetlights are stolen or not lit at night.
And there were some guard dogs that were put by the owners of some small factories, but all of them seemed to have been poisoned.
The reason for this to happen is to allow those who want to operate at night to be able to do it quietly without being disturbed by the dogs, who yelped when they see vehicles appearing in the dead of night when there are some men who want to break into the factories.
Some people have been killed, including a
man whose body was found by the side of the road. China
Many Bangladeshi workers in the factories had been harassed by those in uniform and robbed by others riding small motorcycles.
The DAP member of parliament may not be aware of this. He has not bothered to check with those who live and work in his own constituency, so much so even the drains that had been clogged when Barisan controlled this area are still clogged.
This is a strong indication of how the DAP member of parliament has not bothered to do what he was supposed to do.
He chose to gamble. And unfortunately for him, his acts had been recorded and posted on YouTube.
Who would know if he is the DAP member of parliament to the than his friends or close colleagues anyway?
And his party immediately suspended him three months. But for gambling?
He, being a Chinese can say, it is his right as any Chinese to gamble. After all the casinos at Genting Highlands were opened purely to cater to their lifestyle.
And many Chinese in
and the neighboring countries had come to gamble; some won and many more lost. Malaysia
Few had died when the vehicles they were traveling in fell over the slipper roads when it rained, or some who had deliberately done so, because they could not bear going downhill without any money in their pockets.
I pity the DAP member of parliament; he should not have been suspended. He like the female DAP member of the state assembly Elizabeth Wong and also state executive member of Selangor who was caught having an affair with a Melayu man was never chastised by her own party much less suspended.
And the DAP has also not admonished Anwar Ibrahim from Parti KeAdilan Rakyat (PKR) for committing sodomy for which he had to face trial not once but twice and given jail sentences, the last being for five years.
He is now held at the Sungai Buloh Prison.
Even as a member of their Pakatan Rakyat coalition party, the DAP had the right to comment and also called for the suspension of Anwar like they had called for the termination of communication with PAS vice-president Hadi Awang, but not the party, for his interest to move a motion in parliament to get their Hudud Bill passed.
The DAP does not seem to realize the Hudud Bill that Hadi wants to move in parliament his not his personal motion but he is acting on behalf of the party.
But the DAP seems to be afraid to chastise the party but not the individual so they think they can get away if PAS collectively criticize them.
Chances are Hadi will succeed if Umno and some member of Barisan also support it like their members in the Kelantan state assembly had done so when the Hudud Bill was passed there earlier, before it could be sent to parliament.
The ugly or laughable thing is how both the DAP and PAS thought they could form a coalition with PKR called Pakatan Rakyat to unseat Barisan and form a federal government and some state governments, with DAP insisting that they are secular governments and PAS wanting to establish Islamic ones with PKR sitting in the center trying to be the kingmakers but whose only reason to exist it seems is to look after the well-being of its founder, Anwar Ibrahim, a former Umno and Barisan strongman, now convicted sodomist.
However, the most laughable part is how the supporters of DAP and PAS and also PKR could go along with what their leaders have been doing which to the average Malaysian, would be confusing to the core.
The only logical thing is that DAP and PKR depends on how many more Melayu PAS can bring to support them in the general elections and how PAS can also benefit from the Chinese supporters of DAP to get more PAS members in the parliament and the state assemblies.
And this is what has been keeping Pakatan Rakyat together, until the Hudud matter comes along which can change all that they had tried to hold on to.
