  • Asia Sentinel : Malaysia's Submarine Scandal Surfaces in France

    Murky arms deal linked to international pattern of kickbacks

    A potentially explosive scandal in Malaysia over the billion-dollar purchase of French submarines, a deal engineered by then-Defense Minister Najib Tun Razak, has broken out of the domestic arena with the filing of a request to investigate bribery and kickbacks from the deal in a Paris court.

    Although the case has been contained for eight years in the cozy confines of Malaysia's courts and parliament, which are dominated by the ruling National Coalition, French lawyers William Bourdon, Renaud Semerdjian and Joseph Breham put an end to that when they filed it with Parisian prosecutors on behalf of the Malaysian human rights organization Suaram, which supports good-government causes.

    Judges in the Paris Prosecution Office have been probing a wide range of corruption charges involving similar submarine sales and the possibility of bribery and kickbacks to top officials in France, Pakistan and other countries. The Malaysian piece of the puzzle was added in two filings, on Dec. 4, 2009 and Feb. 23 this year.

    For two years, Parisian prosecutors, led by investigating judges Francoise Besset Francoise Besset and Jean-Christophe Hullin, have been gingerly investigating allegations involving senior French political figures and the sales of submarines and other weaponry to governments all over the world. French news reports have said the prosecutors have backed away from some of the most serious charges out of concern for the political fallout.

    The allegations relate to one of France's biggest defense conglomerates, the state-owned shipbuilder DCN, which merged with the French electronics company Thales in 2005 to become a dominant force in the European defense industry. DCN's subsidiary Armaris is the manufacturer of Scorpene-class diesel submarines sold to India, Pakistan and Malaysia among other countries. All of the contracts, according to the lawyers acting for Suaram, a Malaysian human rights NGO, are said to be suspect.

    With Najib having moved on from the defense portfolio he held when the deal was put together in 2002 to become prime minister and head of the country's largest political party, the mess has the potential to become a major liability for the government and the United Malays National Organisation. Given the power of UMNO, it is unlikely the scandal would ever get a complete airing in a Malaysian court, which is presumably why Suaram reached out to French prosecutors.

    "The filings are very recent and have so far prompted a preliminary police inquiry on the financial aspects of the deal," said Philippe Vasset, the editor in chief of a Paris-based military intelligence website. "There isn't a formal investigation yet. The investigation will most likely use documents seized at DCN in the course of another investigation, focusing on bribes paid by DCN in Pakistan."

    Vasset said police have confined their inquiry to bribery allegations so far and have not looked into the 2006 murder of a Mongolian woman in Malaysia who was a translator on the deal for Najib and his friend, Abdul Razak Baginda, during a visit to Paris.

    There have been numerous deaths involving DCN defense sales in Taiwan and Pakistan.

    Prosecutors are suspicious that 11 French submarine engineers who were murdered in a 2002 bomb blast in Karachi – first thought to have been the work of Al Qaeda – were actually killed in retaliation for the fact that the French had reneged on millions of dollars in kickbacks to Pakistani military officers.

    The Malaysian allegations revolve around the payment of €114 million to a Malaysia-based company called Perimekar, for support services surrounding the sale of the submarines. Perimekar was wholly owned by another company, KS Ombak Laut Sdn Bhd, which in turn was controlled by Najib's best friend, Razak Baginda, whose wife Mazalinda, a lawyer and former magistrate, was the principal shareholder, according to the French lawyers.

    "Over the past years, serious cases have been investigated in France by judges involving DCN," lawyer Renaud Semerdjian told Asia Sentinel in a telephone interview. "This is not the first case of this kind that is being investigated. There are others in Pakistan and there are some issues about India. To a certain extent, every time weapons of any kind have been provided, suspicion of violation of the law may be very high."

    As defense minister from 2000 to 2008, Najib commissioned a huge military buildup to upgrade Malaysia's armed forces, including two submarines from Armaris and the lease of a third, a retired French Navy Agosta-class boat. There were also Sukhoi supersonic fighter jets from Russia and millions of dollars spent on coastal patrol boats. All have come under suspicion by opposition leaders in Malaysia's parliament but UMNO has stifled any investigation. Asked personally about the cases, Najib has responded angrily and refused to reply.

    Despite efforts to bury it, the case achieved considerably notoriety after the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, a 28-year-old Mongolian translator and Razak Baginda's jilted lover, who participated in negotiations over the purchase of the submarines. By her own admission in a letter found after her death, she was attempting to blackmail Razak Baginda for US$500,000.

    She was shot in October 2006 and her body was blown up with military explosives by two bodyguards attached to Najib's office after Razak Baginda, went to Najib's chief of staff, Musa Safri, for help in keeping her away from him. Not long after being acquitted in November 2008 under questionable circumstances of participating in her murder, Razak Baginda left the country for England. The bodyguards were convicted but no motive was ever established for their actions.

    The submarine deal was never brought up in court during a months-long murder trial that was marked by prosecutors, defense attorneys and the judge working studiously to keep Najib's name out of the proceedings. A private detective hired by Razak Baginda to protect him from the furious Altantuya filed a statutory declaration after the trial indicating that Najib had actually been the victim's lover and had passed her on to Razak Baginda.

    The detective, P. Balasubramaniam, said later that he was unceremoniously run out of Kuala Lumpur. He eventually emerged from hiding in India to say he had been offered RM5 million (US$1.57 million) by a businessman close to Najib's wife to shut up and get out of town. He also said he had met Nazim Razak, Najib's younger brother, and was told to recant his testimony.

    In the current complaint in Paris, the issue revolves around what, if anything, Razak Baginda's Perimekar company did to deserve €114 million. Zainal Abidin, the deputy defense minister at the time of the sale, told parliament that Perimekar had received the amount – 11 percent of the sale price of the submarines – for "coordination and support services." The Paris filing alleges that there were neither support nor services.

    Perimekar was registered in 2001, a few months before the signing of the contracts for the sale, the Paris complaint states. The company, it said flatly, "did not have the financial resources to complete the contract." A review of the accounts in 2001 and 2002, the complaint said, "makes it an obvious fact that this corporation had absolutely no capacity, or legal means or financial ability and/or expertise to support such a contract."

    "None of the directors and shareholders of Perimekar have the slightest experience in the construction, maintenance or submarine logistics," the complaint adds. "Under the terms of the contract, €114 million were related to the different stages of construction of the submarines." The apparent consideration, supposedly on the part of Perimekar, "would be per diem and Malaysian crews and accommodation costs during their training. There is therefore no link between billing steps and stages of completion of the consideration."

    As Asia Sentinel reported on April 1, services for the subs are being performed by a well-connected firm called Boustead DCNS, a joint venture between BHIC Defence Technologies Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of publicly-listed Boustead Heavy Industries Corp Bhd, and DCNS SA, a subsidiary of DCN. Boustead's Heavy Industries Division now includes Perimekar as an "associate of the Group. PSB is involved in the marketing, upgrading, maintenance and related services for the Malaysian maritime defence industry," according to Boustead's annual report.

    Originally Boustead told the Malaysian Stock Exchange that the service contract was for RM600 million (US$184.1 million) for six years, or US$30.68 million annually. However, the contract later ballooned to RM270 million per year. Boustead Holdings is partly owned by the government and has close connections with UMNO.

    "There are good grounds to believe that [Perimekar] was created with a single objective: arrange payment of the commission and allocate the amount between different beneficiaries including Malaysian public officials and or Malaysian or foreign intermediaries," the complaint states.

  • Zul Nordin yang saya kenal
    Saya mula mengenali Zulkifli Nordin sejak isu Aishah Bukhari, gadis Melayu dari Johor yang keluar Islam dan menyertai Kristian kerana mengikut kekasihnya. Ketika itu Zulkifli Nordin adalah Setiausaha Masjid Jamek, Kuala Lumpur. Kerana kedudukannya di situ, Masjid Jamek menjadi pusat kegiatan menangani isu murtad itu. Sejak itulah, saya mula kagum dengan keberanian Zul.

    Namun, hari demi hari, sebagai wartawan keyakinan dan kekaguman saya kepada beliau mula terhakis. Ia bermula sejak dia mengendalikan isu Aishah Bukhari lagi. Kenyataan, bahasa yang digunakan, fakta yang diberikan sangat hebat. Namun, di dalam hati kecil saya mula tertanya-tanya...betulkah segala kenyataan ini.

    Yang paling ketara, kenapa beliau begitu berani membuat kenyataan yang bersifat hasutan tetapi beliau tidak pernah dilaporkan dipanggil atau disiasat oleh polis. Padahal apa yang beliau nyatakan dalam ucapan dan kenyataannya amat sensitif kepada hubungan kaum di negara ini ketika itu.

    Sebagai wartawan yang sudah acap kali disiasat polis kerana laporan hasutan dan fitnah, saya rasa faham benar apakah dia hasutan dan fitnah ini.

    Namun saya sejukkan hati...mungkin dia lebih tahu dan apa yang dinyatakan itu tidak bertentangan dengan undang-undang kerana dia peguam.

    Kes Arsenik Anwar

    Lepas isu Aishah Bukhari, datang isu Anwar Ibrahim. Zul telah dilantik sebagai salah seorang peguam Anwar. Ekoran itu, keraguan saya terhadap Zul terlerai begitu sahaja. Tentu Anwar dan pasukannya lebih kenal Zul dari saya yang hanya seorang wartawan cabok. Tentu beliau betul. Itulah yang bermain di kepala saya ketika itu.

    Namun, hari demi hari kes Anwar berjalan...keraguan terhadap Zul datang kembali. Ceramah yang beliau berikan sangat ramai pendengar dan penontonnya. Namun, kenyataan-kenyataan yang beliau buat dalam ceramahnya mula meragukan saya.

    Misalnya, apabila beliau bercakap soal Anwar terkena Arsenik. Saya masih ingat lagi kata-kata Zul dalam ceramahnya. Kalau tidak silap di sekitar Kampung Baru pada tahun 1998.

    "Tuan-tuan, semalam saya ke Sungai Buluh bertemu dengan Datuk Seri Anwar. Bagi saya Anwar sah terkena racun Arsenik. Apabila saya pegang kepala Datuk Seri Anwar, penuh tangan saya dengan rambut beliau tuan-tuan. Rambut beliau mula gugur. Saya yakin lepas ini semua rambut Anwar akan gugur...." Begitulah lebih kurang kata-kata Zul Nordin dalam ceramahnya itu.

    Pendengar sangat hiba dengan Anwar. Terkena Arsenik.

    Namun, sebagai wartawan lain pula yang saya rasa. Betul ke ni...bagaimana dia boleh pegang kepala Anwar?, hati saya terdetik. Lalu sebagai pengarang, saya arahkan wartawan, jangan tulis berita itu. Tidak masuk akal.

    Kesangsian kepada Zul semakin bertambah dengan cerita-cerita dari kartunis Zunar yang kebetulan ketika itu sentiasa mendapat surat-surat dari Anwar dari dalam penjara. Ketika itu, Harakah siarkan surat-surat Anwar dari penjara dalam kolum "Warkah Dari Penjara". Ia berupa surat-surat yang ditulis Anwar sendiri di atas pelbagai jenis kertas termasuk di atas kertas tisu dari dalam penjara dan diseludupkan keluar kepada kami di Harakah.

    Zunar juga mendapat maklumat yang sama...Zul Nordin 'melampau' atau exegerate dalam ucapan dan tindakannya.

    Ekoran itu, kami sepakat, berita berasaskan kenyataan dan tulisan Zul Nordin tidak boleh disiarkan dalam Harakah kerana kebolehpercayaannya amat rendah.

    Dengan MB Terengganu

    Selepas pilihan raya 1999, PAS telah menang di Terengganu. Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang telah dilantik sebagai Menteri Besar. Pada satu hari, beberapa peguam telah diamanahkan untuk membuat satu perbentangan kepada beliau di pejabatnya dekat Kuala Terengganu. Salah seorang dari mereka adalah Zulkifli Nordin.

    Untuk membuat perbentangan itu, mereka telah berbincang sehari suntuk di Kuala Lumpur sebelum membuat perbentangan pada keesokan harinya. Maknanya, kesemua mereka sentiasa bersama untuk membuat persiapan itu. Mereka berlepas ke Kuala Terengganu pada pagi esoknya dan terus ke pejabat MB Terengganu.

    Di pejabat MB, apabila bersalam dengan Abdul Hadi, Zul Nordin berkata, "Tuan Guru, Datuk Seri Anwar kirim salam. Semalam saya jumpa beliau," kata Zul Nordin kepada MB Terengganu itu.

    Tercengang-cengang semua rakan-rakan peguamnya apabila Zul berkata demikian kepada MB Terengganu itu. Bila pula 'mamat' ni jumpa Anwar. Semalam sehari suntuk mereka bersama.

    Berpaling arah

    Bilakah Zulkifli Nordin mula berpaling arah. Dalam hal ini saya bersetuju degan rakan penulis saya Mohd Sayuti Omar. Menurut Sayuti, Zul Nordin mula meninggalkan PKR sejak tahun 2009 lagi apabila Datuk Abdul Aziz Sheikh Fadzil menarik balik petition pilihan rayanya terhadap Zul.

    Ketika itu, Zul telah dipetition kerana gagal membuat laporan kewangan perbelanjaan beliau dalam pilihan raya umum 2004. Ia menjadi syarat wajib bagi SPR. Mana-mana pihak yang tidak membuat laporan kewangan pilihan raya sebelumnya tidak layak untuk bertanding dalam pilihan raya berikutnya. Ekoran kegagalan itu, calon BN telah membuat petition. Zul juga mempunyai masalah besar kerana dia juga didakwa cuba membuat laporan palsu dalam kes ini.

    Menjelang mahkamah membuat keputusan, tiba-tiba calon BN itu telah menarik balik petitionnya. Ekoran itu selamatlah Zul dan kekallah beliau sebagai anggota Parlimen.

    Walaupun masih anggota Parlimen PKR, namun tindak tanduk Zul bukan lagi anggota Parlimen PKR. Banyak kenyataan dan tindakan beliau sudah selari dengan Umno dan bukan Pakatan Rakyat lagi. Secara tidak rasmi, dia bagi saya sudah menjadi anggota Parlimen Umno. Apatah lagi, berita angin melaporkan beliau telah bertemu dengan Datuk Seri Najib sebelum itu. Saya tidak berani untuk berkata, adakah beliau bertemu dengan Rosmah atau tidak.

    Kemuncak tindakan Zul Nordin adalah selari dengan Umno dalam isu nama Allah. Ketika PAS, sebagai sebuah parti Islam yang dipimpin oleh ulama berkata orang bukan Islam boleh menggunakan nama Allah kerana sememangnya nama Allah sudah digunakan oleh Kristian khasnya di Timur Tengah, Zul mengambil sikap selari dengan Umno. Sikap ini bertentangan dengan sikap PKR dan PAS sendiri.

    Ia tidak menjadi masalah lagi kerana di dalam PAS juga mempunyai pendapat yang berbeza sebelum kata sepakat dicapai. Tetapi, apabila Zul membuat laporan polis terhadap anggota Parlimen PAS dari Shah Alam, Khalid Samad ekoran isu nama Allah ini, dia sudah melampaui batas. Semua pihak mengatakan Zul Nordin sudah melampau.

    Saya menyokong penuh kenyataan Datuk Zaid Ibrahim yang berkata, "Saya berdoa agar Zul keluar PKR atau dipecat oleh PKR."

    Dan kini PKR sudah memecat Zulkifli Nordin. Sebagaimana dijangka, beliau diangkat menjadi hero oleh akhbar Umno, Utusan Malaysia dan diberikan laporan muka depan akhbar itu.

    Saya selalu berkata kepada pemimpin PAS, "kalau kenyataan tuan disiarkan oleh Utusan, apatah lagi di muka depannya, percayalah itu bukan publisiti yang tuan perlukan. Itu sebenarnya publisiti buruk dan percayalah ia akan menyusahkan tuan dan PAS."

  • Lim Kit Siang visits Kota belud
    Sabah people must fully embrace new Internet technology in the “Save Sabah, Save Malaysia” battle

    Sabah people must fully embrace new Internet technology of blogs, facebook and twitter in the “Save Sabah, Save Malaysia” battle to restore justice, freedom and prosperity for all Malaysians regardless of race, religion or region

    This is my first visit to Tuaran and it is historic in more senses than one.

    Firstly, the coming together of Bajaus, Dusuns and Chinese in Tuaran tonight illustrates the living 1Malaysia in Sabah and not just at the sloganeering level of 1Malaysia since Datuk Seri Najib Razak became the sixth Prime Minister in April last year.

    When I visited Kota Belud earlier today, I was told that Sabah – like the Bajau, Dusun, Iranun and Chinese in Kota Belud – had been practising 1Malaysia for decades, with the various ethnic groups in Sabah long having a very easy, friendly and cosy relationships with each other, and their response to Najib’s 1Malaysia is whether the Prime Minister had been sleeping all these decades.

    Secondly, this DAP Chinese New Year Open House going on now in Tuaran is being followed not in other parts of Sabah and Malaysia but throughout the world.
    This has been made possible by the new Internet technology of blogs, facebook and twitter enabling people not only in Sabah and Malaysia but worldwide to share events, ideas and aspirations on-time and instantaneously, regardless of time and geography.

    For instance, when the other leaders like the three DAP MPs, Hiew King Cheu (Kota Kinabalu), Teo Nie Ching (Serdang) and Lim Lip Eng (Segambut), the DAP’s sole State Assemblyman Jimmy Wong Sze Phing (Sri Tanjong) and Sabah DAP officials like Edward Muji (Vice Chairman) and Jeffrey Kumin (Organising Secretary) were speaking, I had sent out four tweets about Tuaran which is accessible worldwide instantaneously.

    My four tweets on Tuaran a short while ago are:

    • In Tuaran attend DAP CNY OH Sabah tale of horrors continue Tuaran has most unique hospital not just Msia but world – without a single bed!

    • 150k ppl Tuaran have 2go2KK 4hospitalisation Big shame! 4nearly 30 yrs string of promises 2build ward w beds never met #Save Sabah/Malaysia!

    • 2nd Tuaran horror Dy educ minister Fuad promised last yr work on new secondary school in Pekan Nabalu near Tuaran wld start b4 Xmas Not kept

    • Horror3 – 1994 Umno/BN promised 2build bridge over Sg Damit Tuaran Promises repeated in 4 gen elections Never kept #Save Sabah/Malaysia!

    I had said in my first tweet on Tuaran about “Sabah tale of horrors” because I had during my visit to Kota Belud earlier today sent out seven tweets about the deplorable infrastructure and socio-economic problem in the area, viz:

    • Travelled worst n most disgraceful 8km road 4beautiful SMK Tambulion Kota Belud like mirage in desert since school opened June 2006

      Saturday, 27 February, 2010 17:04

    The people of Sabah must fully embrace new Internet technology of blogs, facebook and twitter in the “Save Sabah, Save Malaysia” battle to restore justice, freedom and prosperity for all Malaysians regardless of race, religion or region.

    As I had tweeted on Feb. 23, there has been an exponential growth of twitter with 50 million tweets created per day in the world from 5,000 tweets per day in 2007, 300,000 tweets per day in 2008, 2.5 million tweets per day in early 2009 and 35 million tweets per day at the end of 2009.

    Our visits to Kota Belud and Tuaran has confirmed the shocking neglect, discrimination and marginalization of the ordinary Sabahans regardless of race, religion or region by a handful of political opportunists who have waxed rich from the wealth of the state of Sabah while the people of Sabah had been reduced to the poorest in Malaysia.

    The campaign “Save Sabah, Save Malaysia” must be launched without any delay so that the ordinary people of Sabah and Malaysia can fully enjoy the fruits of development and the wealth of the state and country.

  • Batang Air : Pengajaran penting buat Pakatan Rakyat

    Oleh Masdar Wahid

    KUALA LUMPUR : Sejak pilihan raya negeri Sarawak yang berlangsung pada 2006, satu-satunya Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) yang berlaku selepas itu di Bumi Kenyalang itu ialah kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Batang Air yang menyaksikan BN mengekalkan penguasaannya dengan meraih majoriti lebih 1,000 undi, menewaskan calon Pakatan Rakyat iaitu Jawah Gerang yang bertanding atas tiket PKR.

    Persoalannya, sejauh manakah PR di Sarawak mengambil iktibar berhubung kekalahan calonnya di DUN itu yang dikategorikan dalam kawasan luar bandar?

    Rekod menunjukkan, bahawa sejumlah besar daripada 71 kerusi Dun di Sarawak adalah kerusi yang dikategorikan sebagai kawasan luar bandar

    Faktor Kekalahan

    Bagi Pengerusi PKR (Majlis Pimpinan Negeri) Sarawak, Baru Bian, faktor kewangan, media, sikap terlalu yakin calon yang bertanding selain tiada persefahaman sesama ahli dan penyokong antara faktor penyumbang kepada kekalahan PKR di kawasan itu.

    Menurutnya, PR di Sarawak tiada media khusus untuk menyebarkan penerangan parti, mungkin boleh diatasi jika parti memiliki dana yang mencukupi.

    "Selain kewangan, kita juga menghadapi masalah dari segi penyusunan ahli dan penyokong yang kurangnya persefahaman sesama mereka," katanya kepada

    Beliau menambah, sikap calon yang terlalu yakin juga adalah antara penyumbang kepada kekalahan ini.

    Jawah tewas kepada calon BN yang juga muka baru, Malcom Mussen Lamoh dengan majoriti 1854 undi.

    Untuk rekod, calon PKR itu merupakan bekas Ahli Parlimen (MP) Lubuk Antu selama lima penggal berturut-turut dan Dun Batang Air terletak dalam kawasan parlimen itu.

    Undang-undang Pilihan Raya

    Mengulas isu yang sama, Ketua Pemuda PAS Sarawak, Abang Addy Aliyanni berkata, keputusan PRK bagi Dun Batang Air harus dijadikan iktibar penting buat semua komponen PR untuk mendepani BN pada pilihan raya negeri akan datang.

    Beliau memberitahu antara iktibar yang perlu diambil perhatian ialah berhubung pemahaman ahli dan penyokong berkaitan peraturan pilihan raya bagi memudahkan segala jentera pilihan raya berjalan lancar.

    Menurutnya, ilmu seumpama itu penting kerana ia cukup membantu apabila berdepan dengan pelbagai karenah petugas Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) yang sering memihak kepada BN.

    Beliau yang turun bersama kira-kira 60 penyokong dan ahli Pas ketika berlangsungnya PRK itu memberi contoh bagaimana wakil calon PR dinafikan hak untuk hadir semasa pengiraan undi berlangsung.

    "Wujud keadaan di mana pengiraan undi dikira seawal pukul tiga petang sedangkan waktu itu proses membuang undi masih lagi berjalan.

    "Lebih malang lagi, apabila pengiraan itu dilakukan tanpa kehadiran wakil calon dari PR,

    "Dalam keadaan seperti ini, pelbagai manipulasi boleh berlaku yang akhirnya memenangkan calon BN," tegas beliau yang juga calon Pas bagi Parlimen Batang Lupar pada Pilihan Raya Umum (PRU) lalu.

    Beliau yang berkampung di Dun Batang Air sehinggalah keputusan diumumkan memberitahu, polis turut merampas bendera Pas semasa berlangsungnya PRK itu yang disifatkannya sebagai melampau dan berat sebelah.

    Pembangunan ala 'mee segera'

    Sementara itu, Timbalan Pengerusi PKR negeri, Wan Zainal Wan Senusi, berpendapat, BN sebenarnya tetap gagal dalam PRK itu kerana hanya berjaya meraih undi tambahan antara 800 hingga 900 undi walaupun selepas berbelanja ratusan juta ringgit.

    "Kemenangn BN sebenarnya tidak berbaloi kerana mereka hanya menambah kira-kira 800 hingga 900 undi walapun berbelanja RM100 juta dalam PRK itu selain beberapa janji pembangunan 'mee segera' yang ditabur di sana sini.

    "Persoalannya, sudah tertunaikah segala janji-janji itu?" katanya.

  • BumiPerak: Ceramah Maulidur Rasul di Surau turut dihadiri bukan Islam

    IPOH 21 Feb 2010 Sukar untuk diterima akal dalam Ceramah Maulidur Rasul yang tajuknya berkisar tentang kemuliaan junjungan besar Rasulullah S.A.W dan keagongan sejarah Islam dihadiri bersama dengan beberapa orang bukan Islam termasuk Ahli Parlimen Gopeng, YB Lee Boon Chai, ADUN Simpang Pulai, YB Chan Ming Kai dan ADUN Teja, YB Chang Lih Kang.

    Ceramah tersebut disampaikan oleh Menteri Besar Rakyat Negeri Perak, YB Dato' Seri Ir Nizar Jamaludin di Surau Abdul Rahman Auf, Taman Rapat Koperasi, Ipoh malam tadi.

    Antara yang disampaikan Nizar apakah kewajaran serta nas dan dalil-dalil yang menegah penggunaan nama Allah oleh bukan Islam?. Sikap begitu mengundang umat Islam kepada perbuatan syirik kerana beriktikad adanya tuhan selain Allah dengan mengatakan Tuhan sebahagian insan lain itu bukan Allah. Bahkan ayat AlQuran yang pertama surah Al-fatihah menyatakan Alhamdulillahi Rabbul alamin (Segala pujian bagi Allah Tuhan semesta)

    Kelihatan YB Lee Boon Chai, ADUN Simpang Pulai, YB Chan Ming Kai dan ADUN Teja, YB Chang Lih Kang bersama jemaah Surau selepas solat Fardhu Maghrib penuh teliti mendengar ceramah.

    KUALA TERENGGANU – Pemimpin Umno dan pengikutnya sebenarnya tidak faham bagaimana sebenarnya amalan menghayati sambutan Maulidur Rasul SAW.

    Ketua Penerangan PAS Terengganu, Ustaz Nik Mohammad Zawawi Nik Salleh berkata apa yang Umno buat setiap kali kedatangan bulan Rabiulawal sekadar ‘bermuka-muka’.

    Katanya, Umno gagal mendidik pemimpin dan ahli-ahlinya dengan berkesan melalui penghayatan Maulidur Rasul.

    “Umno buat (maulidur rasul) sekadar ‘bermuka-muka’ sahaja kononnya, Umno hendak menghayati Islam.

    “Dalam masa sama, dia (Umno) menolak syariat Rasulullah SAW, tolak hukum Islam yang menjadi sebahagian dari kehidupan manusia,” jelasnya

    Bahkan, katanya program sambutan dengan perarakan yang dilakukan itu tidak mendatangkan keinsafan kepada rakyat.

    Beliau juga menjelaskan apa yang penting adalah penghayatan syari'at yang dibawa oleh Rasulullah SAW.

    Menurutnya, program yang menjurus ke arah itu perlu dibuat bagi menerangkan kepada masyarakat tentang perjuangan, pelaksanaan syariat dan perundangan Islam.

    “Sambutan Maulidur Rasul banyak cara boleh buat kerana yang penting umat Islam menghayati syariat yang dibawa oleh Rasulullah SAW.

    “Program yang menjurus ke arah itu seperti ceramah, seminar, diskusi dan pameran yang menyedarkan masyarakat tentang sejarah Islam sebenar,” ujarnya.

    Justeru itu, Ustaz Nik Zawawi menasihati umat Islam agar tidak hanya membuat perarakan sekadar untuk mengingati tarikh lahir Nabi SAW dan Tahun Gajah.
