Kenaikan mendadak harga minyak petrol dan inflasi sekaligus mengakibatkan kerencatan ekonomi. Pakatan Rakyat amat perihatin akan perkembangan sebegini yang mana rakyat lah yang akan merasa kesannya. Kita konsisten dan komited untuk meringankan beban rakyat dan memulihkan ekonomi negara, buktinya kita telahpun meluncurkan kepada umum Gagasan Agenda Ekonomi Baru, serta mekanisme penurunan harga minyak petrol. Lucunya ada yang mempertikaikan komitmen Pakatan Rakyat dan saya untuk memulihkan ekonomi negara serta membantu rakyat yang memerlukan, sama ada Melayu, Cina mahupun India.

Petang ini saya bersama-sama YAB Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin; Menteri Besar Perak dan YB Mujahid Yusuf Rawa mendengar dengan teliti rintihan wakil pekerja Kilang Elektronik Nikko. Usaha Kerajaan Perak untuk meringankan beban 400 pekerja disamping bantuan Kijang Care wajar dipuji serta dicontohi. Tindakan kilang tersebut membuang perkerjanya dengan notis 24 jam amatlah mengejutkan dan ternyata tidak bertanggungjawab. Saya menyeru agar tindakan dan langkah yang sewajarnya diambil.

From Malaysiakini

Barely 24 hours after he voiced his support for opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim in the Permatang Pauh by-election, Gerakan leader Dr Toh Kin Woon has quit his party.

The Gerakan central committee member submitted his resignation letter to the party today.

Giving no further details, Toh is said to have quit to concentrate on his NGO work.

Nevertheless, the timing of his pullout from the Penang-based party has raised many questions.

A repeat legal assault on the opposition leader highlights the current volatility. The old order is desperate to hold power.

A feverish atmosphere now grips Malaysia. The country is awash with rumours. Until the resignation in 2003 of the previous prime minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad – after 22 years in office – its politics was entirely predictable. Now it is becoming highly unpredictable.

Malaysia is one of the great Asian success stories. It has enjoyed a growth rate of up to 8% for much of the past 20 years, and the fruits of prosperity are everywhere to be seen, from the magnificent twin towers in Kuala Lumpur to the expressways and traffic congestion. Without doubt Malaysia is the great economic star of the Muslim world. The architect of this economic transformation was Dr Mahathir, but since he stepped down the country has been engulfed by growing doubts about his legacy and the emergence of a new set of priorities.

From The Malaysian Insider

PETALING JAYA, Aug 18 — Abdurrahman Wahid, the former president of Indonesia and influential leader of Islamic group Nahdlatul Ulama, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim need not swear on the Quran as it is un-Islamic and there is no such requirement under Islamic laws.

Gus Dur, as he is popularly called, also said the recent swearing on the Quran by Anwar’s former aide Saiful Bukhari Azlan was un-Islamic. “I challenge anyone to prove the reverse. They better open the law books of Islam.”

Saiful has accused Anwar of sodomy and the de facto leader of PKR has been charged in court. Hearing is set for Sept 10.

“I think the accusation of sodomy is wrong. I have known him for 15 years. I believe totally in him,” Gus Dur said at a press conference at PKR headquarters here today.

Semalam sebelum ke lokasi Ceramah ‘Memerdekakan Negara’ di Kawasan Lapang Boon Siew, saya sempat meluangkan masa bersama-sama penduduk setempat untuk melihat aksi anak jati Pulau Pinang, saudara Lee Chong Wei berentap dengan bintang badminton China, Lin Dan.

Menonton sambil menghirup teh tarik membuatkan saya terkenang ketangkasan legenda pemain badminton negara terdahulu seperti Tan Aik Huang dan Eddie Chong. Sayangnya Chong Wei tewas meski pun mempamerkan prestasi cemerlang dalam perlawanan sebelum ini.

Apa pun, syabas kerana berjaya menyumbang pingat pertama buat Malaysia!

Before last March 2008 elections, I urged Kepala Batas voters to perform a great national service by booting out Prime Minister Abdullah. That would have triggered a seismic shift in UMNO’s leadership. With its ban on contesting top posts effectively circumvented, the party would get to preview other potential candidates.

If Kepala Batas voters were to shy away from exercising that historic opportunity, I suggested that Malaysians could still teach Abdullah a lesson by substantially reducing his coalition’s victory. That would also trigger a challenge to his leadership, and we would have the same effect as with the first scenario.

Alas, Malaysians did teach Abdullah a hard lesson, but not hard enough. Besides, being a slow learner, Abdullah did not get the message. Now voters in Permatang Pauh, practically next door, will get a chance to deal Abdullah a third and final knock-out blow, one he would surely get.

Syaikh Daud Abdullah al-Fatani menyebut dalam kitab Hidayatu al-Muta’allim[1]: ketika mengulas tentang perlaksanaan hukum hudud zina:

“(Bermula ) zina yang wajib [hukuman] had itu iaitu orang yang melazimkan hukum [mukallaf] lagi mengetahui dengan haramnya [berzina] dengan memasukkan hasyafah [forehead] atau kadarnya [sekiranya zakar yang tidak mempunyai hasyafah] dengan faraj atau dubur yang haram bagi ‘ainnnya, lagi keinginannya pada tabiatnya [tidak dipaksa] dengan tiada syubhah…….”

Syaikh Daud menyambung dengan menyebut pengecualian daripada hukum, yakni tidak sampai dihukum dengan hukum hudud tetapi ditakzirkan:

“Tetapi tiada thabit [hukum had] dengan tiada masukkan [zakarnya] ke dalam faraj seperti bergurau-gurau jua atau dengan di wati isterinya pada masa haidhnya dan puasa atau di wati [disetubuhi] pada dubur[2] [isterinya] atau diwati sahayanya yang ada suaminya atau yang di dalam ‘iddah atau sahaya itu mahramnya atau diwati dengan tergagah [dipaksa] atau dihalalkan oleh orang alim [seperti fatwa ulama shiah tentang nikah mut’ah] atau diwati orang mati atau akan binatang, maka tiada [dilaksanakan] hukum had pada segala perkara itu” [m/s 300-301]

At a time when most of the BN top brass are expressing great confidence in winning the Permatang Pauh by-election, one top level Gerakan leader today risked party and BN irk by giving his stamp of approval for PKR’s Anwar Ibrahim.

MCPX

That support came from Gerakan’s Penang-based leader Dr Toh Kin Woon, an outspoken former state executive councillor when Penang was ruled by Gerakan-led BN before the March general election.

Toh not just expressed his support for Anwar, he also visited a PKR election operation room in Permatang Pasir, one of three state constituencies in Permatang Pauh, this evening.

The Permatang Pauh by-election has become the focus of the whole country and the world because it is not a contest between Anwar Ibrahim and Ariff Shah. It is not just a by-election about who should represent Permatang Pauh.

It is a battle for the future of Malaysia – of 27 million Malaysians and future generations.

The 58,459 voters of Permatang Pauh have a historic mission to perform and three things to accomplish on polling day on August 26:

BUKIT MERTAJAM: Taking an oath on the Quran does not absolve a person of his sin and a Muslim should not make a mockery of the holy book by swearing on it.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he decided to take the alleged sodomy case to Syariah Court because his honour and dignity were at stake.

“Please do not make a mockery of the holy book. Can you absolve your sin by swearing on the Quran?
