Malaysia practises the separation of powers. Nancy Shukri (pix below) as an MP is an elected member of the legislature and, as a cabinet minister, is a member of the executive.
On the other hand, the high office of the Attorney-General is provided for under Article 145 of the Federal Constitution.
So why are the Yahudi Yeohs demanding that Nancy interfere with the AG ‘s job? On the contrary, it is the AG’s duty to advise the (Law) Minister – this is what the Constitution says. Hence Nancy is merely following procedures in leaving to him the decision on pressing charges.
Nancy carrying out her work professionally
The FedCon also stipulates that the AG holds office at the pleasure of the YDP Agong. The AG is not beholden to the BN.
The opposition claim they want the judiciary and other authorities to be independent but here they are screaming for Nancy to intervene when government officers do their job. Such inconsistency!
And there’s nothing at all unusual about a minister reading out a prepared statement in Parliament. The ministers, after all, do not work in a vacuum. They have to liaise with a host of other government bureaucracy.
Furthermore, the AG cannot even be sacked by the PM. He can’t be removed from office except by a tribunal of Federal Court judges. It just shows how ignorant the opposition sheeple are when they expect the AG to be remote controlled by the Law Minister.
Only Pakatoons expect elected reps (like their PKR Kajang Adun) to follow the orders of the Ketum.
Guan Eng slams Nancy Shukri in his Deepavali message
Lim Guan Eng in his Deepavali message expressed his party’s appreciation to “moderate Muslim groups” over their condemnation of Nancy Shukri.
The DAP sec-gen did not however name which group(s).
Contrary to Guan Eng’s assertion that “moderate Muslim groups” had condemned the minister, the Muslim groups had in actual fact congratulated Nancy.
In its press statement, Pembela said:
“Pertubuhan-Pertubuhan Pembela Islam ingin mengucapkan setinggi-tinggi tahniah kepada Menteri Di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, YB Nancy Shukri di atas ketegasannya mempertahankan prinsip-prinsip keluhuran perlembagaan dan kedaulatan undang-undang negara di dalam isu pertembungan desakan EKSTREMIS KRISTIAN tempatan melawan Perlembagaan.”
Who’s the one fanning “ethnic and religious hatred”, really?
Guan Eng went on to blame Putrajaya for relying on “sociopolitical engineers to focus on emotional ethnic and religious hatred” that has created “such hostility towards non-Muslim and non-Malays”.
He claimed that on top of telling “bare-faced lies to distract attention from addressing the real problems”, Malaysia’s failed leaders are now “asking for the revival of preventive laws”.
What Guan Eng mouthed above about distracting attention is the standard Dapster line of attack when in reality it is the Yahudi Yeohs who are the real culprits. But typically in his Orwellian turn, Guan Eng spins it the other way around. And even in his Deepavali greeting, he is unable to desist from politicking.
It’s Umno’s fault!
I blame Umno for allowing Yahudi Yeoh to bermaharajalela
“Let Deepavali remind us of our sacred duty to shine the light against the darkness of oppression and corruption,” said Guan Eng, deploying the pro forma Firster political lexicon.
To the Yahudi Yeohs, only they and they alone are Good (“light”) whereas their wicked opponents belong to the Dark Side and serve Evil.
Decrying what he called the “dangerous ideology of special privileges that includes the right to be corrupt and to bully minorities”, Guan Eng accused sociopolitical-engineering proponents of spreading “a dangerous ideology of hostility towards diversity”.
He further accused supporters of “the status quo” of threatening the peace and harmony of our country.
It is mainly due to Umno’s tidak apa-ness that Guan Eng and his evangelistas have been allowed to get away with saying the things that he does and for so long.
Nancy Shukri given an overdose of Love-Love-Love
Guan Eng’s tactic to ‘kena’kan Nancy Shukri in his Deepavali message today only serves to encourage the Yahudi Yeohs in their “continuing vilification” of her.
What kind of a politician is he?
One Malaysiakini subscriber Simon Ti commented that Nancy Shukri “is not even fit to carry the shoes of real woman leaders like Ambiga, Mariam Mokhtar, Marina Mahathir just to name a few of those courageous women of substance and Allah’s gift to Malaysia”.
I must say that I empathize with Nancy for her up close and personal brush with the Yahudi Yeohs.
All the reader comments on this page are quoted / screenshot from the following Malaysiakini report on Nancy Shukri – http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/277971
Hajah Nancy bashed for wearing a tudung
Below are some comments by Malaysiakini readers
The Yahudi Yeohs mock and insult a Muslim woman who has done the haj for wearing a tudung. On the other hand, they have nothing but praise for the fashion sported by a tudung-wearing evangelista.
This politician, incidentally, threatens to make an immediate police report against anyone who mistakes her for a Muslimah – quite naturally because of her tudung garb and frequent mosque visits.
She (the Jerusubang fat cat) is a staunch Christian, you see, and takes criminal offence at anyone who spreads what she considers to be the malicious rumour that she has embraced Islam.
“Nancy Nancy you look funny
and out of place with the tudong”
says Malaysiakini reader ‘Jaguh‘
“Why Nancy is seen wearing a Tudong all of a sudden?”
“Closet Perkasa sympathiser?
“Tudongs; the new fashion statement?!”
Nancy Shukri, who is Muslim from the multicultural Sarawak, should just ignore the hypocritical and crazed comments from her detractors.
All the comments thrown at Nancy would be better directed at Hannah Yeoh, most obviously. To borrow a phrase from Malaysiakini commenter Axolotl, Hannah “the fakest one of all!”
