Selamat Pagi Malaysia !!! The Future Beckons.
Apa lagi nak di fikirkan? Apa lagi nak di bincangkan? The time for debate, for posturing, for taking positions for personal financial and political gain, is over. All those who will do battle against the tyranny of kleptocracy, arrogance, and hubris. All those who believe that good will triumph over evil. Right over wrong. All those who believe that being courageous and fearless in the face of overwhelming force and odds and against PN’s determination to keep the political power that they have stolen for us…against all this, if you have the courage to stand up and be counted, then soon, you will be tested. Do not mind that I write 6000KM away in Melbourne. Do not worry too much whether Tun or Kit Siang will survive the rigors and challenges that will surely soon come. Early this morning my classmate Zainul Bahrain tells me that two of our mates from MCKK days are unwell. Saudara Ramly Mohamad (suara) underwent a heart operation, and Saudara Mustaffa Phag is undergoing heart treatment. For my two classmates and for Tun and Kit Siang and many others, our comrades all, we will pray for their health and well being. All this and more will be our lot to bear and to overcome…but think back to 2018…think back to over six decades of misuse and abuse of political power for personal and financial gain, think back to what has happened in the first hundred days of this back door government and think back to the betrayal by Din, Azmin and Zuraida of our trust and our mistaken belief that they were the guardians of our hard-fought 2018 electoral victory……all this is reason enough for all of us to say “Yes we will remember. Yes, we will not forget. Yes Lawan mesti Lawan!”.
And friends let me share what my bother Zainul has shared with me this morning.
“In sya Allah, brother Hussein, will do whatever is within our capacity to do! Your concerns as expressed here are indeed no different from what I too hold! And, I believe Anwar too has similar thoughts! But, my main concerns are the idle and retrogressive thoughts of many Malays, even the educated and religious ones, that are extremist in nature and in fact violates the dictates of Allah SWT re respecting the rights of others who are not Muslims! Perhaps you are already aware of Allah’s clear statement on such matters as stated in Verse 13 Surah (chapter) al-Hujurat. The mentality of many Malays have not only been poisoned by some UMNO leaders of yesterday and today but made worse by their own action to follow the wrong calls blindly and without any proper thoughts of fundamental rights and wrongs! Let us hope Anwar can and will do the right things now and should he helm the country. Got to go up for my Subuh prayer. Wasallam”….and please my friends, remember that was Zainul and me talking about our classmate Anwar Ibrahim and our people, the Malays.
Yes, we should all worry about the Malays and about brother Anwar Ibrahim but more than that, we must also worry about the wretched state of our nation today, about the well being of all Malaysians and about what the future holds for our next generation. So early in the morning and Zainul and me are talking about the same things that many many Malaysians will be talking about this Thursday morning, 18th June 2020. We are of different religions, of different ethnicity, different ages, gender, and from all walks of life but our love for our Tanah Air transcends everything. We are one.
Selamat Pagi Malaysia. Come we have work to do! Onwards, once more, towards Putrajaya!
