Though I understand where Brother Haris was coming from in his ABU campaign, there is a Chinese saying that 'one shouldn't swipe everyone down with a single stroke of the bamboo', meaning one shouldn't machine-gun a crowd down like what the Israelis have been doing to the Palestinians, killing babies and children indiscriminately.
Hurting indiscriminately! That has been what happened in ABU-ing in the 2013 general elections.
At least in a perverse and very evil way, the Israelis have been doing it deliberately in their indiscriminate attacks, with single-minded purpose to kill as many Palestinians as possible so as to intimidate the surviving victims a la the Nazi way of punishing the group until they can be cowed into total submission to Ketuanan Israeli.
But back here in Malaysia, even if we hate UMNO for their corruption and racist arrogance, we shouldn't punish good UMNO members like, for example, Saifuddin Abdullah.
One of the most liberal and fair-minded UMNO members, Saifuddin unfortunately became a victim of the ABU campaign in the 2013 general elections where he lost his Temerloh seat to a PAS member.
TMI described Saifuddin Abdullah as follows:
However, his popularity did not save him in the Temerloh parliamentary seat, which he lost to PAS's Nasrudin Hassan.
The former deputy higher education minister, known to call a spade a spade, has even criticised his own party and Putrajaya over the handling of the electoral reform rallies organised by Bersih. He has alsp ticked off the government, saying it would lose "in moral terms" if it appealed a court ruling that declared a law barring students from politics to be in breach of the Federal Constitution.
Saifuddin is now the chief executive officer of the Global Movement of Moderates and is often invited to speak at forums organised by civil society groups.
Indeed, his defeat in Temerloh was not only a loss for Saifuddin but very much so for liberalism because the PAS member who replaced him as the MP for Temerloh has been none other than Ustaz Nasrudin Hassan At-Tantawi.
Do you know who he is?
Don't worry about his silly attempt to draw parallel comparison between Khalid Ibrahim's Kidex in Selangor and Lim Guan Eng's sea tunnel from Penang Island to the mainland.
Don't worry about Lim threatening to sue him for badmouthing the Penang tunnel project unless he apologises.
And I hope Lim does just that so he will be hurt, at least in his pocket.
This Nasrudin bloke has a reckless and irresponsible way with his mouth. In 2010 he as PAS Youth Chief made stupid statements, that babies abandoned through illicit births had been the result of Valentine's Day and New Year's Day celebrations. Incidentally, both events are non-Muslim celebrations on which he should have kept his wild intrusive irresponsible opinions to himself.
Malaysiakini reported in 2010 in its Valentine's Day blamed for baby dumping that Nasrudin Hassan had blamed the festivity celebrations on those two days as encouraging free sex that led to ... yadda yadda yadda ... culminating in baby dumping.
Nasrudin unbelievably claimed: "It's an indication that the 'mating season' occurred during the New Year's Day celebrations."
Bullsh*t, my dear Yang Amat Alim, New Year's Days and Valentine’s Days have been celebrated all over the world for centuries, yet we haven't seen Malaysia's kind of baby dumping in those foreign countries.
Tell you a bloody secret Ustaz ..... because their societies are far more humane, compassionate, caring, supportive and most important of all, less misogynistic, and fortunately without people like you and some of your mates in PAS.
Misogynistic? Please read my 2006 post Wives not satisfying husbands are abusive!
That's who we'll get with a PAS government.
And incidentally Nasrudin, what about those numerous cases of incest which occurred more frequently in Kelantan and Terengganu than any other states?
Perchance have you back-checked the births of offsprings from those acts of incest 9 months earlier to either New Year's Days or Valentine's Days, or more likely, Budu Days, wakakaka - see Has Aphrodisiac Budu Been Responsible?
Stoning women to death, blaming non-Islamic celebrations on baby dumping, blaming women for everything, wanting to punish women, rejecting women as MB – really I dread to think of such leaders for our nations. But ‘tis the nature of the beast.
In an earlier post Valentine's Day's wild sex romps & orgies I had written as follows:
Despite its religious sounding name, Valentine’s Day is not a public holiday at all, no, not anywhere, not even in the Roman Catholic World. In fact, in 1969 His Holiness Pope Paul VI wiped out Valentine’s Day from the General RC calendar of saints’ days. Praise His Holy Daddy!
And with that, boyfriends around the world heaved a great sigh of relief until those blasted florists and chocolatiers revive its celebrations, naturally for their commercial interests, as they did by inventing Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Soon, if they have their evil ways, every day will be ‘something’ Day.
But notwithstanding all these known commercial interests, somehow, there are some Malaysians, presumably those whose heads are constantly filled with visions of wild sex romps and orgies, who believe that on Valentine’s Day our hormones will somehow exponentially increase to an extent that we would scare even the wildest satyrs and nymphs.
But alas, Nasrudin's moronic statement was made worse by Pak Haji Nik Aziz threatening to stone those mothers to death for their 'sins'.
For such a learned man, he showed he didn't understand the social tragedies of babies born out of wedlock being abandoned by their mothers, that those single women involved had been frightened by society's uncaring and cruel attitude into dumping their little ones, much as those acts were cruel and criminal, ...
... only because our society has been not so humane, compassionate, caring, supportive and most important of all, less misogynistic.
PAS must claim most of the (mis)credits for the fears of young Malaysian Muslim women and girls.
And it's bloody fortunate for us the Ustaz didn't know that last Saturday 02 August 2014 had been the Chinese version of Valentine' Day, which Chinese term as Qixi festival, a 2,600 year old festival, or we would have him talking gibberish about sex romps again.
And you ABU-f**kers exchanged Saifuddin Abdullah for this Ustaz Nasrudin Hassan At-Tantawi?!
Well done, f**kers!
