Marina Mahathir on the National Anthem..... 

Marina Mahathir on Negara Ku.....Interesting!!

She really made a very good point here, read on!

A comment posted on Marina M's blog in response to an article on the issue.......

Some self-appointed defenders of Islam including the chief of "1Malaysia " have insisted that Catholics should use "Tuhan" instead of "Allah" to address the Catholic or Christian God. But in the national anthem, "Tuhan" (not "Allah") bless the country (...Tuhan  kurniakan...).   

How now ?!!. If Malay-Muslims are that easily confused as portrayed bysome politicians, they must be thinking that Malaysia is blessed by the Catholic/Christian God, and the Muslim God "Allah" is perpetually on leave. Perhaps, this confusion may cause the government to change the national anthem by replacing "Tuhan" with "Allah"But then again,  non-muslimswil…

Malay sia - a laughing stock

Stop making us a laughing stockJeswan Kaur | September 22, 2013 The never-ending cronyism, nepotism and corruption - these are what have shamed Malaysia. COMMENT It has been seven days since former anti-colonialist Chin Peng died,  ironically at a time when  Malaysia was busy celebrating its golden jubilee. Whilst Chin Peng has bid Malaysians farewell forever, he continues to make for interesting read, especially when it came to the issue of allowing the 88-year-old eternal resting place in his hometown in Sitiawan, Perak. Chin Peng’s many attempts to return to Malaysia were rejected by the Malaysian government on grounds that he had rejected the offer the government made in 1989 via the Hatyai Treaty. Through the peace deal signed during prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s reign over Malaysia, Chin Peng was allowed to return home provided he did so within the one-year grace period accorded under the agreement. Chin Peng however declined and chose instead to live in exile in Thailand…

The Malaysian Insider pic by Afif Abd Halim, September 20, 2013Broken promises, deplorable living conditions and threats spurred six Orang Asli from villages in Kuala Lipis, Pahang, to travel at least 12 hours to Kuala Lumpur to testify in the Bersih People's Tribunal.

Jakarta’s and KL’s haze deal angers Asean partnersBY ELIZABETH ZACHARIAH
SEPTEMBER 13, 2013
LATEST UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 07:07 PM Malaysia and Indonesia have struck a deal to withhold critical information on forest fires in Sumatra which cause the annual haze in the region. Southeast Asian counterparts Singapore, Thailand and Brunei, countries also affected by the haze, were understandably upset with the deal. The Edge Review reported that the deal became known after the haze appeared for a second time this year after the worst haze since 1997 occurred in June and July. The haze caused schools and businesses in Malaysia and Singapore to be closed, health problems and affected air travel. Documents retrieved from recent regional meetings showed that Malaysia and Indonesia signed an agreement to exchange digital-geo-referenced maps to show when and where the forest fires started. It will give information on who started the fires. The maps would be evidence for authorities to take le…
