This country needs major political, economic and social reforms. The next two years are going to be most trying years indeed. And expect a snap general election within 18 months of Najib taking over if he does take over on 1 April 2009.
NO HOLDS BARRED
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Tomorrow, I will probably be detained under the Internal Security Act. Anyhow, before we talk about that, let me start by giving you my prediction for the two by-elections scheduled for early April.
In 2004, BN won the Bukit Selambau state seat with a majority of 7,695 votes and in 2008 they lost it with a majority of 2,362 votes. (See the chart below). In the coming by-election, I forecast a voter turnout of around 26,000 and a majority of 3,500-4,500 for the opposition.
For the Bukit Gantang parliament seat, in 2004 Barisan Nasional won with a majority of 8,888 and in 2008 it lost with a majority of 1,566. (See chart below). This time around, the voter turnout will be roughly 42,000 and the opposition will win that seat with a majority of 5,000-8,000 votes.
Okay, I am forecasting this even before I know who the candidates are. Well, I have no choice. On Tuesday, 17 February 2009, the Federal Court is due to hear the appeal against my release from Internal Security Act detention and I really do not know what the outcome is going to be. Chances are, I have but 24 hours left as a free man and if I do not write this article today I never will.
On 7 November 2008, the Shah Alam High Court ordered my release from detention. The government has appealed this decision although it did not see the need to appeal the decision of the Shah Alam High Court acquitting Abdul Razak Baginda of the charge of murder without his defence being called.
I was in court last week to witness the performance of the three judges and what I saw did not give me much confidence. First of all, we asked for a quorum of seven judges, or at least five. But the court turned us down and fixed a quorum of only three judges. And two of the three judges appear to be hostile towards us from the word ¡go¢. It looks like my fate has been sealed even before the case goes to court.
Anyway, I know for a fact that it was not Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who ordered my detention. He was not even aware I had been detained. The order came from Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and since I am bent on making sure he never becomes Prime Minister on 1 April 2009 I really do not blame him for wanting to get me out of the way.
My friends and family want me to leave the country and to seek political asylum in another country. They feel I can still continue with the struggle in a foreign land. But I am against that as much as my wife pleads that I consider this. I am no quitter and I do not run. I shall stay and fight till the very end even if that is the last thing I do.
If I have to lose my freedom so be it. That is the price we pay for opposing the powers-that- be. But I shall not go quietly or make any deals to secure my release with those who walk in the corridors of power.
I was given an option. Take the money and become rich or go to jail. I refused the money and instead chose jail. This is my choice and no one can convince me to do otherwise. No doubt I will have to pay for this and it will be a heavy price that I shall have to pay. But this is the price of the struggle and the price does not come cheap.
I shall not submit. I shall resist till the end. I stand on right and I oppose what is wrong. Amar makruf, nahi munkar, as Islam would say. We must uphold right and oppose wrong. That is not only the Islamic way but also the way of all religions. And even atheists believe in this, so you need not believe in God to subscribe to the concept of amar makruf, nahi munkar.
Over thousands of years countless people have met their deaths just because they stood on the side of right. What I have chosen to do has been done by so many who are now nameless and faceless. So it is nothing so special that I do which has not been done before.
My resistance will continue. But I will have to continue my resistance behind the barbwire fences of the Kamunting Detention Centre. It will now be up to you, those who are free, to continue where I left off.
My resistance, however, will have to take on a new form. I will no longer be able to write or speak at ceramahs. My voice has now been silenced. But I can still speak the words of silence, which will be my new form of resistance.
I shall no longer open my mouth or utter one word during my detention. I shall maintain the silence of a mute person. I shall not sign any documents of the so many documents that they make you sign when under detention. My signature is not going to be placed on a single shred of paper.
By doing so would mean none of my family members or lawyers would have access to me. Yes, that is the price I shall pay for ¡not cooperating¢. I know this and I am prepared for it.
I shall refuse all medical treatment and visits to the hospital. I shall refuse to accept any food and water supplied by the Kamunting authorities. I shall refuse to leave my cell or to meet any of the prison authorities. In short, I shall shut myself out from the world and keep to my own world of my eight feet square cell.
This action will mean I shall survive at the most seven to eight days. By the end of that period I shall be dead. I am prepared for that. They plan to imprison my body for the rest of my life. But I shall release my spirit from my body and will again be free. They can keep my body and they can do whatever they want with it. But they will never be able to keep my spirit. I shall separate my spirit from my body and deny them the pleasure of incarcerating me.
This is a decision I have taken and no one can make me change my mind. And this is probably the last article of mine that you shall read if they send me to Kamunting tomorrow. Keep the struggle going. I shall no longer be able to join you in that struggle. The work is far from finished. This country needs major political, economic and social reforms. The next two years are going to be most trying years indeed. And expect a snap general election within 18 months of Najib taking over if he does take over on 1 April 2009.
I lay down my life for this nation of ours called Malaysia. I will sacrifice myself for the sake of the struggle. There is very little left I can give at this point of time other than my life. For those who stood by me all these years, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I go with a heavy heart. But my heart is heavy only because I have but one life to give.
Death is not the end. Death is but the beginning. It is the beginning of a new journey that none of us can escape and will one day embark upon. It is not something to be sad about. It is something to rejoice.
Please continue your struggle to make Malaysia a better place for our future generation. This country belongs to them and it is for them that we struggle. For some of us, our time is already almost up. We do not have many years left. Many have gone before us. Many friends who started out with us in 1998 are no longer around. But they left this world in the hope that one day Malaysia will be the country that we dream it would be. And that, too, must be our dream.
I pray and hope that the Putrajaya Federal Court will uphold the decision of the Shah Alam High Court to free me from ISA detention. But if it reverses that decision then we must be prepared for that as well. And if the Federal Court does what I fear it will do, goodbye Malaysians, my comrade-in-arms. We shall meet again, one day, although not in this world but the next.
I’m not a political analyst or borrowing my ex-boss favourite word – political scientist, but I’m just an ordinary man who are looking into things and events as it is.
UMNO has no other choice but to win this by-election. If not it will be a bye-bye election for them. The election will become benchmark for umno as they had suffered a lot since March 8, General Election and Permatang Pauh by-election. UMNO can predict their future whether it is bright or a bit blur.
Najib definitely will work hard to make sure to umno fan that he can deliver, that’s all, nothing much. While Pak Lah, who was planning to step down might not involved full force in the campaign, this time Pak Lah definitely will come as election tourist, visiting some of the Bilik Gerakan and handing over something to the rakyat.
UMNO is struggling to convince its own supporter that they are still intact and in good shape despite all problems, conflicts and controversies between various fractions within the party due to power shift. Wanita UMNO problem is a big headache though through lips both Rafidah and Shahrizat agree to cooperate… hihihi it sounds like a fox promise not to eat chicken. Voters will also confuse because so many UMNO leaders especially those who will contest in the next UMNO AGM will take this opportunity to capture as many as possible coverage than the candidate himself. It is worst than last Aidil Adha – where some UMNO leaders were shown in TV performing hajj, joint the takbir program etc.
UMNO is under pressure as PAS has still keep mum on who will be their candidate in the election. UMNO need to know who he/she is as they need to have enough time to tarnish and blackmail that guy reputation. Desperate of winning – UMNO using their official media (TV3 and RTM including Bernama and NST group) start hitting the bush – and they got something – hudud issue, open dance, new car for pakatan states, Kelantan GLC matters and others. Not enough, Najib start much earlier announcing tonnes of promises on ringgit and sen to the rakyat of Terengganu as if the money all belong to him. Price of petrol suddenly drop as if they had been concerned on the rakyat plights all this while.
PAS on the other hand couldn’t take this by-election lightly, though the mood is there and furthermore the wave after P44 – Permatang Pauh was secured for Anwar Ibrahim – the setback and non-confidence especially on the Federal Government take over, Malay and Islamic issues including performance of some of the Pakatan Rakyat states and some of the YBs performance and attitude might have some effect too. The smear campaign combined with various UMNO trademark during election – such as – pengundi hantu, pengundi pos, duit kopi, turap jalan, beras, kain pelekat should be penetrate and curb as much as possible.
During 8th March General Election, PAS candidate Mat Sabu was defeated by a slim majority that is only 600 plus. He was challenged by UMNO and a one-woman show – Makcik. Bear in mind – on 8th March the wind of change is so strong and warm but now it is almost reaching antartica – slow and cold. The candidates from PAS must be someone who can deliver – being a local or not local is not a too big issue. The one who represent PAS in this election shall be seen representing the new breed of “new politics of Malaysia”.
There are also some difficulties in Haji Hadi part to select the right candidate for this election as everybody has the qualities needed and experience deemed for this position. Anyhow let the PAS President take his time until new year eve to make the announcement.
UMNO will definitely play the sentiment of Chinese voters in Kuala Terengganu as their number is quite big and may jeopardize their effort to retain P036 seat. Beside ISA, the best next is divide-and-rule policy legacy of the British intruders that BN still needed to ensure their survival.
Let the voters decide whether UMNO still needed or PAS should be given chance.
SHAH ALAM: The High Court here yesterday released web portal Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin from detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA) after allowing his application for a writ of habeas corpus.
Justice Datuk Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad held that the grounds for his detention by Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar under section 8 of the ISA did not come within the scope of that section.
He then ordered that Raja Petra, 58, who has been held at the Kamunting detention camp in Taiping, Perak, since Sept 12, be brought before the court at 4pm for his release.
Raja Petra, 58, had applied for the writ of habeas corpus seeking his release on the grounds that his detention under the ISA was unlawful and unconstitutional. He named Syed Hamid as respondent.
Raja Petra’s wife, Mable @ Marina Lee, and their two daughters, Suraya, 34, and Sarah, 19, and other family members cried and hugged each other after the judgment was delivered.
Meanwhile, his supporters in the gallery clapped and cheered. Raja Petra was represented by counsel Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, Ashok Kandiah and Azhar Azizan Harun, while senior federal counsel Abdul Wahab Mohamad appeared for the prosecution.
He was detained on the same day as Seputeh Member of Parliament Teresa Kok and Sin Chew Daily journalist Tan Hoon Cheng, also under the ISA. Both have since been released. – Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR 8 Okt. – Penyokong Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) boleh dikenakan tindakan di bawah Seksyen 441 Kanun Keseksaan kerana menceroboh atas tindak tanduk mereka sewaktu menghadiri Rumah Terbuka Aidilfitri Perdana Menteri dan menteri- menteri Kabinet Rabu lalu.
Peguam terkemuka, Sashi Menon berkata, walau pun dibenarkan menghadiri majlis itu atas semangat meraikan hari raya tetapi mereka dianggap telah menceroboh dan mengugut Perdana Menteri apabila mendesak supaya dihapuskan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) dan dilepaskan ahli Hindraf yang ditahan ISA.
”Mengikut Seksyen 441, mereka boleh dikenakan tindakan di bawah jenayah pencerobohan dan boleh didakwa di bawah seksyen yang sama,” katanya di sini hari ini.
Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas sama ada tindakan para penyokong Hindraf yang mencetuskan kekecohan pada majlis rumah terbuka itu boleh dikenakan tindakan undang-undang.
Menurut Sashi, adalah kurang wajar untuk sesiapa sahaja mengganggu majlis rumah terbuka sesuatu perayaan kerana ia boleh dianggap tidak menghormati majlis tersebut.
Tambahnya, penyokong Hindraf tidak sepatutnya menimbulkan kekecohan pada majlis berkenaan justeru mereka wajar dikenakan tindakan.
Seorang lagi peguam, Datuk Muhamad Shafee Abdullah berkata, penyokong Hindraf telah mengadakan perhimpunan secara haram apabila berkumpul beramai-ramai pada majlis tersebut.
Tindakan mereka itu, jelas beliau, telah mencetuskan kekecohan dan boleh dikenakan tindakan undang-undang termasuk ISA.
Beliau berkata, kerajaan tidak sepatutnya membiarkan perkara seumpama itu berterusan kerana amalan kebebasan bersuara dan kebebasan berhimpun juga ada hadnya.
Jelasnya, tindakan wajar dikenakan kepada pihak terbabit yang mencetuskan suasana kacau bilau walaupun atas dasar memperjuangkan kebebasan.
Seorang lagi peguam, Firuz Jaffril berkata, penyokong Hindraf yang menimbulkan kekacauan boleh dikenakan tindakan mengikut Seksyen 141 Kanun Keseksaan.
Beliau menjelaskan, seksyen tersebut boleh dibaca bersama dengan Seksyen 298A Kanun Keseksaan.
Katanya, mengikut Seksyen 298A, individu yang bercakap atau menulis perkataan yang boleh menyebabkan keadaan tidak harmoni dan menimbulkan perpecahan boleh didakwa di bawah seksyen itu.
