Government "Go Slow" In Tabling The Akta Veteran causes 366195 Ex-Armed Forces Personnel Not Entitled for the RM500 Special Payment

Friday, 27th August 2010

Due to Barisan Nasional "Go Slow" in tabling the Akta Veteran, more than 360000 non-pensioners ex-armed forces personnel will not be eligible for the RM500 Raya Special payment.

Yesterday PM Najib announced that the government will pay  the 1.24 million civil servants and 590,000 government pensioners a Hari raya special payment of RM 500 each. The amount eventhough not that big but it will have a great meaning especially to the muslims who will be celebrating the Hari Raya which is expected to falls on 11 September 2010.
But for the non-pensioner of the ex-armed forces personnel  of more than 360000 in number, they will not be paid with the special gift as the Akta Veteran (Ex-Armed Forces Act) has not been approved by the parliament.

The Motive Why the Tabling Of Akta Veteran Announced   During 
the Bagan Pinang By-Election ?

The tabling of Akta Veteran was first announced by the government during the Bagan Pinang By-Election on 11 Oct 2010 where the BN candidate Tan Sri Isa Samad defeated  Zulkefly Mohamad Omar from pakatan Rakyat-PAS. Based on the announcement, the act was supposed to be table by end of last year or the latest by early of this year will not only benefit the members of ex-armed forces who had completed their 21 years services but also those who served less than 21 years who are currently non-pensioners.
But due to government slow action, the act had not been tabled thus more than 360000 ex-armed forces will not be paid with the RM500 special hari raya gift.

Government Must Expedite the Tabling of Akta Veteran

Most of the ex-armed  forces especially from the other rank are living under the poverty line, and most of them work as a security guard. The government must not slowing down the tabling of the act so that the livelihood of the ex-servicemen are well taking care off  by the government. To expedite the tabling of the act, the government must consider the sacrifices   made by these ex-servicemen while they were still in service.

On behalf of all the non-pension ex-armed forces, I am urging the government to expedite the tabling and therefore implementing the Akta Veteran for the benefits of the 360000 ex-armed forces members nationwide irrespective of their political beliefs.

Iban/dayak Will Shun Pakatan Rakyat If PAS Proceed With HUDUD

Friday, 27th August 2010

Stop HUDUD or Lose the Iban/Dayak Supports

Iban/Dayak at the earlier stage of the formation of Malaysia were worried that by joining Malaysia they would be forced to convert to Islam (jadi Melayu) but after assurance was given by their leaders that they would be allowed to continue practice their religion and way of life, only then they agreed to join Malaysia.

What is Hudud to The Iban/Dayak

For the Iban/Dayak Hudud means Islamic rule where night clubs, drinking an alcoholic drink and any sort of social activities are not allowed. They will look at Kelantan state and the Kingdom of Brunei as an example.
Their perception might be wrong but in reality that is what really happen in Kelantan and the Kingdom of Brunei.
In Kelantan where the majority of its populations are Malay, the response from it people so far have been so good. Eventhought PAS (Islamic Party Of Malaysia) in imposing certain social strictures such as single-sex queues in supermarkets; separate public benches for men and women; and limiting entertainment centres to prohibit "salacious behaviour";Proposals to institute punishments such as amputation of limbs for thievery and execution for blasphemy, restrictions or outright bans on the traditional performance of syncretic Malay theatrical forms, such as Wayang Kulit, Makyong, Dikir Barat, and Main Puteri; banish any sculpture that looked like human or animal, modified versions without the traditional references to Hindu dewa–dewi and traditional Malay hantu; restricted public performances by women: Aside from Quran recitals, such performances are completely banned if any men are in the audience, but so far PAS has been able to retain Kelantan from UMNO since year 1990.

Stop Hudud or Iban/Dayak Will Pull-out From PKR

After the deregisteration of Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS) and the failed registeration of Malaysia Dayak Congress (MDC), most of the partyless young Iban from the urban areas had turned to PKR to fight for their struggles. Since then, effort had been made to spread the party to the rural areas.
But with recent development where PAS pursuing its dream to implement Hudud nationwide if the Pakatan Rakyat (PR)win the election in the 13th GE, this can shun the Iban/Dayak from PR. Without the Iban/Dayak support, the PR dream to chase BN (Barisan Nasional) out of Putra Jaya will not be successfully.
To PAS, if you need the Iban/dayak support the party has to forget about Hudud and to stick to the original PR manifiesto which which promised a more democratic and inclusive society.
