Anwar Ibrahim: Pidato Umum Di Universiti Malaya

Sodomy II : Anwar’s final appeal



Last night Anwar Ibrahim returned to UM, the same place from where everything began for him 40years.His return was not as what it should have been as the legitimate parliamentary Opposition Leader but in his usual style of controversy and sabotage by the powers that be. Every of his moves is being feared by those in power and they go all out to stop him. Plunging UM into darkness by an alleged power failure speaks volumes of the fear this man.

Defying the warnings by the UM authorities, thousands of students waited for hours in the rain for Anwar at the locked gates of UM last night to give him a rousing welcome. It is an indeed triumphant return for a man who had been beaten to the pulp and charged with all kinds of crimes. He keeps coming back again and again after each setback. Anwar’s perseverance and resilience is admired by many even those who never liked him.

He has achieved what many have failed - united the people of diverse ethnicity and ideologies to "bring to its knees" a repressive and abusive regime that is ruling for over 6 decades. Within six years he managed to deny the ruling party its He may not have succeeded to bring it down totally yet but he has ignited the process which will can never be extinguished.
Today Malaysia is at its worst with racism, corruption and power abuses at their peak. Even hate is being used as a political tool to cling on to power. Only the younger generation of Malaysians can put a stop to all these dangerous trends of racial and religious hatred and confrontation. Will they do it? The UM incident gives some hope they will.


The following 28.October 2014 is D-day for Anwar Ibrahim when the Federal Courts convenes to hear the final appeal for his acquittal. The powers that be are all out to put him behind bars. But Anwar is not intimidated by all these. Age may be against him but definitely his spirit is not. They may imprison him but they cannot put out the spark he has ignited.

The UM rally today confirms that younger leaders are ready to carry his torch to bring change. Anwar may not personally succeed to bring down the government, he may not realize his ambitions to become the PM but definitely he will go down in history as the man who dared to do stand for justice against a power regime, something which many will not dare.

Anwar says he does not want to go to jail but is prepared for that if he has to saying that it will be his last service to the nation and the people. As the Federal Court goes into session, the nation prays for Anwar as he prepares mind and soul to go to jail for a second time. Like all men of his age, it will be heart-breaking experience being separated from his wife, children and especially   his little grandchildren with whom he is closely attached. We share his fears, his anxieties and sorrow for having to separate from his family.

At is age of 67,it will not be easy for him to endure all these but if he is willing to accept that sacrifice, the least we can do is give him the moral and spiritual support.

God bless Anwar Ibrahim, God bless Malaysia

Mahatma's Gandhi's 145th birthday


There is enough for everybody’s need, but not for everybody’s greed


Mahatma Gandhi was known for doing what he preached and preach only what he did. He wanted to be like one of millions of the poor Indians in his country whom he represented.  
On this 145th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi I would to share a story of the humility of this great man which should be an inspiration for all of us especially the politicians who claim to be working for the people.

A little boy was greatly distressed to see the way Gandhi was dressed. Such a great man yet he doesn't even wear a shirt, he wondered.
"Why don't you wear a kurta, Gandhiji?" the little boy couldn't help asking finally.
"Where's the money, son?" Gandhi asked gently. "I am very poor. I can't afford a kurta."
The boy's heart was filled with pity.
"My mother sews well", he said. "She makes all my clothes. I'll ask her to sew a Kurta for you."
"How many Kurtas can your mother make?" Gandhi asked.
"How many do you need?" asked the boy. "One, two, three.... she'll make as many as you want."
Gandhi thought for a moment. Then he said, "But I am not alone, son. It wouldn't be right for me to be the only one to wear a kurta."
"How many Kurtas do you need?" the boy persisted. "I'll ask my mother to make as many as you want. Just tell me how many you need."
"I have a very large family, son. I have forty crore (400 million) brothers and sisters," Gandhi explained.
"Till every one of them has a kurta, how can I wear one? Tell me, can your mother make kurtas for all of them?
At this question the little boy became very thoughtful as he could understand what Gandhi meant.
Forty crore brothers and sisters. Gandhi was right. Till every one of them had a kurta to wear how could he wear one himself? After all the whole nation was Gandhi's family, and he was the head of that family. He was their friend, their companion. What use would one kurta be to him?
Gandhi gave up almost everything he had so as become like one of the ordinary citizen in his country, until he was left just clad in a loin cloth. He wanted the leaders to be examples and role models but he did not just preach but lived to show them what he meant. He conquered greed, hatred and violence and promoted peace and love towards all mankind.
At a time when corruption is so rampant all over the world including in our own country, Gandhi stands out as a conscience in the hearts of men especially political leaders who claim to be working for the ordinary man on the street, who suffers in poverty and struggling to make ends meet for him and his family. Gandhi’s leadership by example should many hypocrite leaders to shame but unfortunately today not many feel ashamed of the greed that engulf them.
