How to strengthen Muafakat Nasional? Marry PAS girls, Ahmad Maslan tells Umno Youth reps

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 5 — Unmarried Umno Youth members should strengthen the Muafakat Nasional bond by marrying daughters of PAS members, an Umno supreme council member has suggested.

In his adjournment speech during the Umno Youth assembly, Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan made the recommendation in a bid to strengthen the unity between Malaysia’s two largest Malay-based parties.

“First we must strengthen our unity with PAS! Any Pemuda (Youth) who is unmarried, you should marry the daughters of PAS members. Those who are married to Wanita Umno members, you should take a second wife if you can afford it,” said the Pontian lawmaker.

He also voiced his confidence that Muafakat Nasional is capable of taking over Putrajaya in the next general election by winning an additional 31 seats.

Among the seats he mentioned include: Kangar, Jerlun, Kubang Pasu, Sungai Petani, Padang Serai, Kulim Bandar Baru, Kuantan, Tanjung Malim, Temerloh, Bentong, Sungai Besar, Kuala Langat, Kuala Pilah, Tampin, Sri Gading, Putatan and Kalabakan among others.

His confidence was based on the last election and the scenario that PAS and Umno are not competing against each other.

Auxiliary policeman in the PJ Community Library bars teen from library due to her “not nice skirt”…

..

Teen’s skirt ‘not nice’, no entrance to library


I’M a 14-year-old girl. I love reading, and my family often visits the Petaling Jaya Community Library. However, I recently had a bad experience there that has made rethink things a little. I don’t really know who to blame exactly, but here it is.

On the afternoon of Nov 26, my mother took my sisters and me to the library after we had been shopping; I was wearing a pair of casual denim shorts. Nothing too revealing but they did end above my knees since it was hot outside. We forgot about the rule (depicted in a picture sign outside) “no shorts, no slippers and no short skirts”. It wasn’t our first time at this library but this time it just slipped our minds.

The young adult fiction books are on the third floor, which is where I usually go to read. As I walked to the lift, a male voice called out to me to stop. I turned around to see an auxiliary policeman sitting by a desk, smiling condescendingly. He pointed at my shorts. I stared at him in shock, and he continued smiling sarcastically as he told me to “go home and change to long pants if you want to come in”.

Just then, my mother came up to me. Having remembered the “no shorts” rule, she brought me her shawl to tie around my waist and fashion into a skirt, as we had done at Batu Caves. Three other library staff were now watching too. The shawl went just past my knees.

I walked towards the lift but the guard stopped me again with that smile.

“You still can’t come in.” Bewildered, I asked why, and he told me that “skirts aren’t allowed”. Based on the picture outside, short skirts aren’t allowed. Mine extended past my knees. My mother asked why this skirt wasn’t allowed, and he looked at his female colleague. “You don’t understand, is it? You don’t know? Your first time here?” I shook my head. My mother asked them where it said that this long skirt wasn’t allowed. They exchanged looks. “Is she going to sit here and read or just borrow?” I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t let me read. “Later people see and then … not nice,” they said.

I don’t understand. I didn’t go there to show off my body. I just went to read and borrow books like always. I was following the rules, so why wouldn’t they let me in? And this makeshift shawl-skirt, was it really considered indecent? I’m not entering a temple or a mosque or a church. It’s a public library.

I felt ashamed for a moment and wanted to hide, but then I thought, why should I? If someone raped me, would it be my fault? For wearing the wrong thing?

This incident opened up bigger, scarier questions to me about the Malaysian mindset.

I only went to borrow books but instead returned humiliated. My 10-year-old sister, who was wearing a skirt with a hemline slightly above the knees, was terrified that she would also be asked to leave.

My mum was apologetic to me and deeply disappointed that I was denied the right to borrow books from the library just because of the way I was dressed. I hope in future that children won’t be judged for what they wear.

Zahid Hamidi: I’m paying the price for turning down Tommy Thomas when he requested the return of Chin Peng’s ashes. (What about calling Dr Mahathir “Kutty”?)

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today said he is “paying the price” for not allowing Chin Peng’s ashes to return to Malaysia during his stint as home minister, citing his 87 charges for corruption.

Zahid said Chin Peng’s lawyer at the time, Tommy Thomas, had made a request for him to propose at a Cabinet meeting to allow Chin Peng’s ashes to be brought back to Malaysia.

“But when it was brought to the Cabinet by me, the Cabinet decided that Chin Peng’s body will never be allowed to be brought on Malaysian land, what more buried.

“But I had to pay a heavy price. Because that lawyer is now the attorney-general, now I have to pay the price with 87 charges. That’s the reality,” he said when launching the Umno Encyclopedia here today.

Zahid is facing a total of 87 charges for alleged criminal breach of trust (CBT) involving his family-run foundation Yayasan Akal Budi, money laundering as well as accepting bribes for various projects during his tenure in the home ministry.

PETALING JAYA: Several firsts will be created when four women judges take their oaths of office at the Palace of Justice this afternoon, sources say.

Federal Court judge Rohana Yusuf will be elevated as Court of Appeal president following the retirement of Ahmad Maarop on Nov 24.

She is the first woman to hold the position since the inception of the Court of Appeal in 1994.

Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat had also appointed Rohana, 63, as acting Court of Appeal president since Nov 25.

Tengku Maimun herself created history in May when she became the first woman to be made the nation’s top judge.

Sources also told FMT that three women from the Court of Appeal – Zaleha Yusuf, Zabariah Mohd Yusof and Hasnah Mohammed Hashim – will be elevated to the Federal Court.

“For the first time, the apex court will have a total of six women judges,” the sources said.

Apart from Tengku Maimun and Rohana, the other woman judge is Nallini Pathmanathan.

Zaleha and her husband Ramly Ali are also the first couple to have started as judicial commissioners before being elevated to the Federal Court. Ramly retired in August.

High Court judges Hadhariah Syed Ismail, M Nantha Balan and Abu Bakar Jais will be promoted as Court of Appeal judges.

Judicial commissioners Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah and Azmi Abdullah will also be confirmed as judges.

All the judges will receive their instruments of office from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at Istana Negara this morning before they take their judicial oaths.

Rohana will take her oath of office before the seniormost Court of Appeal judges. Zaleha, Zabariah and Hasnah will do so before Tengku Maimun.

Tun Abdul Majid and Azmi will take their oaths of allegiance before Chief Judge of Malaya Azahar Mohamed.

Ia dimulakan dengan acara berdiam diri selama seminit bagi memberi penghormatan kepada mereka yang terkorban dalam konflik melibatkan ketiga-tiga pihak.

Di pentas utama juga pada awal majlis menempatkan empat tetamu khas yang turut diraikan atas jasa mereka dalam usaha merealisasikan perjanjian damai itu.
