Najib Abdul Razak has two powerful secret weapons to control Muslims, in particular the Malays. It is for Malaysians – yes you – to destroy them!
Najib uses the state machinery, like the inspector-general of police (IGP), the civil service and the judiciary, to do his bidding.
The on-off secret weapon
One secret weapon is the PAS president, Hadi Awang.
When Najib has bad news to hide, Hadi’s hudud bill is used to maximum effect, to put the fear of God in Malays.
Last May, The Wall Street Journal revealed that Good Star Limited was owned by Jho Low. Several hundred millions of ringgits of taxpayers’ money had been sent to Good Star, and then redirected to Najib’s personal account.
Najib needed a distraction. Enter Hadi’s hudud bill.
He also used this bill, to distract us, when we were angry over Maria’s detention, last November.
Three sets of laws
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Azalina Othman Said, moved Hadi’s bill from the bottom of the list, to the top of the pile, last year.
With her legal background, Azalina should have known that this bill goes against the Federal Constitution.
A nation cannot be ruled by three sets of laws. Civil law, syariah law and one for the elite.
“You help me, I help you” in Kelantan
Najib will collude with Hadi, and use Islam as the proverbial whip.
Umno-Baru hopes to be returned to power, but they need Hadi’s help. The hudud bill, in Kelantan, is the price Umno-Baru must pay for this help; but be warned, hudud is like a cancer, if not excised, it will spread throughout the country.
Muslims are afraid to speak out, with the millstone of Islam weighing them down.
Most dangerous weapon
Social media is perhaps the only place Malaysians can voice their frustrations easily. Najib may think he is strong, because the majority of Malays are in denial about Umno-Baru.
Their silence is Najib’s best weapon.
You cannot remain silent anymore.
Let not all this talk of a government of the day change be mere rhetoric.
