The lady that was beaten up by PEWARIS -Malaysiakini

Update : Mysterious , gutsy lady stands firm.
Remember the incident where a woman was chased by pro-ISA supporters belonging to various “NGOs” last week? Well, she is at the vigil tonight. Want to guess how the crowd responds? Camera flashes pop all around and voices of appreciation are heard.
Yes, Ms M (as she wishes to be known) relives the horror of being punched, chased, and kicked at for voicing out her beliefs. Yes, she was alone that day. She recalls there were a few banners with “‘unbelievable and outrageous words” on them. Read more(Anil Netto)
We are the PEWARIS - Muacccckk
And so I read that a company of Islamic and Malay NGOs formed a body called PEWARIS to defend the use of detention without trial (ISA) and "urged the Government to act against groups which are asking for the abolition of the Internal Security Act (ISA)." (Malay, Muslim NGO logs report )

I am more interested in the reporter's observation of a sideshow that happened. There are just too many organisations formed nowadays who called themselves NGOs but did nothing but demonstrate, demonize than real social work/ social justice work.

Who can this women be? Is she ok? was my reaction when I read this report.

"During the gathering, a woman who was standing at an overhead pedestrian bridge shouted obscenities at the group.
Some members of the group responded with shouts while others chased her before they were stopped by policemen.
The group lodged another report against the woman at the police station."

And today, I chance upon a set of photographs that aghast me with photos and comments made by the photographer ( which seemed to be a favourite among UMNO events.

"Ini lah wanita Cina yang menyebabkan kekecohan berlaku sebelum perarakan bermula. Mula2 nya wanita ini merungut kepada kami (jurufoto) yang berada diatas jejantas. Dia kata "Blardy unfair. When you alll Malays apply you get (permit la gamak nya) When the opposition apply they reject. Blardy racist". Kemudian dia turun dan pergi berdepan dengan budak2 yang sedang berkumpul untuk berarak. Berlaku lah jerit menjerit diantara mereka. "

She got a slap.
She was chased, roughed and tripped. Any policeman to help?
Nobody is helping her. The crowd zooms in. Where is the police?
She got to her car to flee the mob. The mob follows and whacks her car. The songkok man was doing a jumping kick at the windscreen.
She sped off. I would be terrified of my life after this incident. Esp. that her number plate is so glaringly taken, she better be careful as this mob acts like the lord of the town. Even the police do not dare to act against these UMNO link people.
Apparently, they have police permit, as defended by Syed Hamid Albar. Am sure that the permit allows them to stop the traffic and create real troubles for the rakyat. Surely, the ANTI ISA virgil which involves candle lighting and Negaraku Singing is more dangerous.

How is this possible? I am not the defender of the chinese lady as she could have been more senseful in reading the situation and the group's reaction. Though she has erred, that does not justify the beating and the torture that she has to undergo. What happened to the mob that attacked her? What happen to the man that slapped her? Are PEWARIS trully believe that it has the moral ground to do what they did? Are they really representing their religion and race or has this brought shame to the very dear things that they champion? And to a lady?! Kissing the keris is one thing, anger fueled mob attack is another.

Musings to self

I have nothing to say about the yoga fatwa, than to be called names. Though I do feel that many other things are more important like smoking, corruption, detention without trial etc.
My posting would reflect on some interesting reflection from my recent foray to the younger-worlds - by being a facilitator in a teenager camp. Participants come from small towns and are pretty much less influenced by popular culture.. so i tot.

1. Cam whoring - Yes, the new yuppies like to take photos of each other. And they seemed to pick up a bad trait from me in taking 'natural' photos. 'Natural photos' means taking photos of others when they did not notice. Whoops..

Yes, my 'natural' shot was taken when people were not paying attention. Could do with more light in this shot.

And the girls pick up the bad habit to follow. They seemed to have fun chasing each other & shoot them for a laugh. All naturale of course.

2. Screaming - If you have been to a canto-pop concert, you will be able to hear screams and shrills of post pubercent girls at their heart throbs. And I find to my amusement that it is prevalent among a segment of the girls. They would line up and shout at the mountain, the trees and any guys that were teasing them. Like a systematic bombardment of eardrums.

What? My ear is bleeding..

But I did enjoy the moment when it happened to head towards my direction when we said goodbye. Wow, felt like a moviestar. ha

3. Japanese lingo- So neh .... and the ever 'cute' peace sign.

4. Stephen Chow humour - the guys like to do humours ala Stephen Chow. Cross dressing, scolding with upraised voice, ironic face is part of the game.

Best dressed man as women ever. And he acted extremely well with his hand movements.

5. Gang Bang - I find it unusual for a group of girls to be excited about 'gang bangs' and recording it on their camera phone. I guess they had a rough pile on game the night before and I prefer not to know. At those age, I was trying to find out the meaning of masturbation with great difficulty. I would not be too surprised if the clip ends up in youtube.

They really cracked me up with their antics.

Anyway, these are all good kids who study hard, play harder. Most of them are good at many things and am glad to be a small part of their acquiantences. They have good potential to be whatever they want to be. Qing Ting ( below) just won a social award even though she is just in Form 3. And she also won a drawing competition that allows her to go to HK next month. And of course, she take her studies seriously. So, no politics this time but a solute to the future.

"I told you so"

2 things that happen over the week that reaffirms my thought that the world is evil and are unjust for those who are kind. I just want to scream " I told ya so" as what I blogged about came true.

1: Razak Baginda's judgement is not appealed by the prosecutor. The prosecutor made a strong statement after they lost that they will, and I said that it was a 'show'. After a blogger checked with the court and found out that there was still no appeal lodged, the AG people came out with a simple statement that they are not going to appeal . The AG is keeping quiet and hoped that nobody will notice and the reason for not appealing is also flimsy. Is Razak Baginda going to sue the government now for wrong detention? According to this scrip, he will not.

2: Penans help the 2 Petronas chaps who were lost, and in return they will loose their rights when the 500 km pipeline to Bintulu is done ironically by Petronas.... AND not get adequate treatment AND their womenfolk taken advantage of with half hearted attempt to help the victims.

I wish I am wrong about such things but in Malaysia, the rich and powerful rules. Abdul Razak can admit to adultary and JAKIM kept quiet. The UMNO Chief Justice can admit to bribing judges and ACA did not act against it. I guess the rich and powerful must be sniggering at the poor people and says .."I told ya so that I will win at the end of the day"

Good Syed, Bad Syed

Who is the good Syed?

Justice Datuk Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad or Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar ?

I know who is the bad Syed ... and he should resign.

Welcome back RPK!


3 Non-politics related rantings

Well, after the 'judgement' on Razak Baginda and the helicopter judgement that suspiciously favour certain parties, I am too tired to rant about the silly UMNO government anymore. However, here are some 'weird' things that I came about with my camera phone.
Location: Guoman Hotel in Port Dickson. This Malay gentlemen with a younger chinese lady who was very touchy with him. Of course, he was more than touchy and he dance funny. It is all ok except that he looks like Ghafar Baba. Would it be one of Ghafar Baba's son? They disappeared to the rooms after that. Ahem...Location: Port Dickson Pasar Malam , 6th Mile on Saturday during puasa time.
Kid helping his brother to take a nap while the parents pack up.

Location: North south highway, after Nilai.
After a few hours, the PLUS people still can't come out with a simple solution to either clear out the lorry or open a mitigating path. So, people pay to jam-loh.

Location: St Paul's hill in Malacca.
Damn it! This businessman was in the church and uses can's of paints to do his artwork business. Isn't he desecrating a historical monument? (I guess no authority cares if people desecrate church). Ali Rustam, do something!
Location: Dorsett Regency KL.
On ground floor and wanting to do my 'business'. Happily squatting on the toilet and I saw some movement on the floor. The spanking and reflective floor was showing something that I do not dream to see ... another man masturbating. Ponder if I should wait at the front door to see who comes out but no la.... my mind has been disturbed enough.
