Right or wrong this is how I feel.

I have not said anything about PAS and their general assembly and about the Ulamaks and the Erdogans and about the conservatives and the progressives because I had always thought that that is their business so why meddle.

I don't think I could keep quite any longer. I have my reasons. I have been banking on PR to someday wrest control from BN. Since PAS is an important component of PR, whatever that befalls PAS would have a bearing on PR.

My stand is simple. PAS is an Islamic party, not a Malay party. The end, end of story. PAS has no business trying to identify itself as a Malay party. The religion is above race. Heck there are more Muslims in China, therefore Chinese, than there are Muslims in this country so Islam is not the sole property of the Malays.

Any attempts to try to court or be courted by UMNO is a betrayal to PAS's constitution. Has PAS not learnt their lessons from UMNO's betrayal? Do some personalities in PAS sincerely believe that UMNO has changed since that day?

Yes, UMNO has changed but not for the better so what do these people in PAS expect from UMNO then? I tend to agree with Husam in his fight for PAS to be an alternative to UMNO and nothing else. I do not subscribe to this Malay solidarity bullshit because it is the people who talks about Malay Solidarity who are splitting the Malays for their own personal gains.

All UMNO want is to weaken the PR and through PAS and some of their leaders, who are more Malay than Muslim, they have an avenue. All these talk about Malay solidarity sickens me, a Malay. Look the Malays are united as a race but differ politically. That is a good sign, not a bad one. That is maturity.

I have read about how some Ulamaks say that their attempts to bridge the distance is because of the religion. They argue that UMNO is made up of mainly Malays who are Muslims. Fine but have they forgotten who helped them to be as strong as they are now that got the people in UMNO come abegging? Would they have been there without the support of the non-Muslims in the last general election and also at Bt. Gantang.

Don't they know, that UMNO's intention is for them to ditch these very people who had put PAS where they are now? I want to ask them one question. Do you think it is fair for you to do that all in the name of your race? Where is your religion now? Do you think that the religion condones this?

Islam is universal and not the domain of the Malays and PAS must realise that. Malay unity, if it leads to oppression of others is not Islam. Malay is not important in Islam. Malay is nothing in Islam. In Islam, the teachings of the religion is important. In Islam, equality is important. In Islam fairness is important. In Islam valueing one's  partners who seek justice is more important than sleeping with one's foe who happens to be a fellow Malay and Muslim but do not know the meaning of honesty and humanity.

salam cikgu, i couldn't agree more with you.. hope the representatives will choose the best candidates in PAS to be their leaders!

Salam Cikgu,

Well said! I believe a vast majority in PAS know the truth. After all, these are the people who were threatened, discriminated, and alienated, by the ketuanan Melayu concept - the Malay Muslims who were regarded as pariahs by ameno and their likes, where many non-Malays may not be aware of.

All these years of suffering and humiliation were brought onto these PAS members by ameno just because they have a staunch belief in religion and want a just society, and do not believe in ameno.

InsyAllah, the best candidate will win. Personally, I am for Husam.

UMNO berjuang utk melayu??? Not in a million years! UMNO fights for money and wealth. Look at what happen when PAS took over terengganu! UMNO who boast that they are malay champion, oppressed the malay majority government of PAS. Worse still Mahadey ( half brother of Mugabe) unislamicly and unmorally said that the royalty money owed by Petronas to the Trg govt does not exist. There was no agreement to such and there was never any royalty money. There is only wang ehsan. Look at that! Mahadey and UMNO lying and breaking an agreement and promises. If that's not munafik, I don't know what to call it. UMNO never was for malay and Islam, UMNO is only interested in money and wealth. UMNO, a curse onto malaysia left by the british.

Fahmi,
Yes, I really hope common sense prevails.

Shah,
I also believe a vast majority in PAS do not support talks with the devil.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Hamba,
Yes, you are very right about the royalty. Why do PAS think that Madey is no longer in the equation?

I agree with u chikgu, Islam is universal. I just read Al-Islam, and they are debating about Nga Ku Meng(what so ever his name is) who read the Quran during his speech.I'm lack of knowledge ,but seem so awkward when as simple as ABC they said this is haram,that is haram.WTF..

In my secondary schools, I have an English Indian teacher who can read the quran,knows to wrote in jawi better than some Malays,duuhhh...coz he study in Law,I bet karpal knows a little bit also :)So may be they have to change the rules letter..huuhu

Peng,
When I first read 'good both ways' I was a little bit taken aback but then I read on.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Fatsogigolo,
Yes, Husam seems to be da man now.
As for the karaoke part, thats for another story.

You are one of those who truly deserves to be knighted ! God is universal and supreme. Need not be linked to a specific race for political gain. He is impartial and all His subjects are His favourites even though some are nearer to Him then others.

Sadly, many politicians are hiding behind the name of God for their own selfish agendas. Action speaks louder than word and the people at large are no longer ignorant of the those who say one thing but do otherwise.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Ahoo,
Knighted? Wow, maybe then I could get to be Man U's manager.

Whoa! Salam cikgu ! Nampak serius kali ini. I terkejutlah. No more humour macam sebelum ini. This time heavy stuff man. And I cannot agree more with you. Semua you tulis semua betul and I just share the same sentiment with you !! Apalagi. Its a fact. PAS cannot go alone at the federal level and can never ever dream and hope to rule without the others. Itu realitinya. Sudah nampak sangat dalam PRU lepas. Thats the only way to go. No 2 way about it . So kita tengok macammana PAS akan tindak di masa depan. Just my 2sen cikgu.

peng said...

Good in writing la, Cikgu! What were you thinking of? Ha! Ha!

Scope of Political Marketing

http://www.political-marketing.net Offer political Marketing Services

Political Marketing is being used and implemented with different names and different shapes since centuries. In 1950 Political Marketing was defined as a separate subject please sees history of Political Marketing for reference and details.

Still this subject is in developing phase and need to do a lot to formally recognize Political Marketing as separate subject. In my point of view Political Marketing is highly significant in all countries especially in democrat governments and more especially to developed countries. Political Marketing is essential for political parties, leaders, government and as well as for general public. Political Marketing brings stability in political culture of a country that in return brings prosperity in national economy at root and gross level. Without Political Marketing or misuse of Political Marketing it is really intricate to better understand public needs and it is so intricate to create and develop good governance in a society.

Visit http://www.political-marketing.net for more details

To better understand the scope of Political Marketing I would like to quote two examples. 1st for the country where Political Marketing is being implement since many years and in contrast to this the another country where Political culture is not developed yet in parties as well as political leaders are not aware about Political Marketing.

On 1st hand I will like to quote USA. Where we can see very clear that Americans are implementing Political Marketing since many years in America, before elections the candidates create and develop a philosophy for their election campaign. So they are clear about what they are communicating in their dialogue. At all level their philosophy remains same, their goals, mission and objective does not change, audience to audience and place to place.

What ever they communicate for coalition parties or public, in New York or in any other state, the theme of their communication at all level remains same because they are well prepared, we can’t find any contradiction in their speeches, it builds harmony and trust in public. As a result we can see that in America normally election forecasting is done before elections by survey and pools and election result proofs those predictions.

Visit http://www.political-marketing.net for more details

On other hand I would like to quote an example of a developing country where political culture is not as developed yet. We can see that in Pakistan there is political instability, political leaders in Pakistan are not well aware about the importance of Political Marketing due to lack of knowledge. There is no research, no philosophy and no proper developed campaign. One leader is talking and communicating other things compare to other leader of same party, even we can notice very clearly that same leader is communicating in different way with different theme and objective on different occasions and at different territories. Its due to lack of research, lack of proper philosophy and agenda and without preparation of any centralized campaign. As a result public don’t believe their promises and other parties get advantage of their contradictions, however we can see instability, lack of trust inside party and no clear vision.

If we summarize all discussion and keep in mind both examples its clear that without research, developed philosophy and centralized political marketing and election campaign and theme it is impossible to build public trust and harmony at national level. we must give a direction to political activities to get good results for a better future.

For the reason our organization, political marketing services slogan is “VOTE FOR TOMORROW” that describes well all functions of political marketing at all levels, government, political parties, leaders and for public.
