A Reply to Americk

This was a post that I wrote sometime in middle/late 2007 in reply to Americk Sidhu’s (yes, the same one who shared with us a few lovely articles not too long ago) post in one of two online forum’s that I co-moderate. Though I do not harbour such sentiments (abandoning my country) any more in my weaker moments (it’s amazing how just how much hope can be unleashed when BN’s majority was reduced from 2/3rd to about 11/20), I thought I’d share this posting because the sentiments expressed in there with respect to being a Muslim in this country is still valid if not intensified. Also there is my rather raw and brief analysis on the rise of the Islamist in our country, which I have made explicit for comment, criticism or contemplation – all are welcome.

The key words are “penyelidikan” and “sekiranya terbukti”. This is clearly a call to investigate and […]

PAS, UMNO and SIS

I refer to PAS’ resolution on SIS recently. PAS is entitled to hold such a view. However, I can’t get over the feeling that PAS seems to be picking and choosing without any consistency. The notion of Islamic, and right or wrong seems to be switching around according to the leaders’ whims and fancies. Before […]
