When I read about the Singapore guy who blew the whistle on the City Harvest church 12 years ago finally being vindicated, my mind flew to Nasharudin Mat Isa.
Mr Poon was the first to expose all that cheating and lying by the City Harvest crooks disguised as pious clergy. He was crucified by the church lynch mob for revealing that their evangelical idols had feet of clay.
It took the passage of a dozen years but time has proven Mr Poon to be on the side of right.
“Though the mills of God grind slowly
Yet they grind exceeding small
Though with patience He stands waiting
With exactness grinds He all” — H.W. Longfellow

Similarly with Ustaz Nasha who had been put through the wringer for his holding fast to his principles (he and Hasan Ali both) on the kalimah Allah issue when their party waffled for the sake of political expediency.
Now that the DAP sudah tunjuk belang (shed its sneaky camouflage), those who were his detractors back during the PAS-DAP honeymoon period will hopefully realise that Ustaz Nasha too had been right all along.
Among my earliest write-ups on Ustaz Nasha is one on 22 Dec 2011 where I said, “kewibawaan dan ketulusan Nasharudin … yang berpegang kepada tunjang asal parti”.
Victim of the terror squads
Here’s another piece I blogged about Ustaz Nasha on 20 Aug 2012. I’d said, more than three years ago:
“He has carried himself with a quiet dignity though it all …”
referring to his ordeal during the time when PAS naifs and the DAP evangelistas were still kissy-kissy and the PAS former deputy president was cast out.
Congrats and all the best, Ustaz Nasha
Currently with the acrimonious break-up between PAS and DAP, it is proven that Ustaz Nasha possessed the acumen and critical discernment when others in PAS were blinded by the bright and blinking evangeliSTARs.
His appointment today as the new CEO of the GMM is an inspired decision from the left field although I have my reservations about the PM’s ‘moderates’ outfit unless and until Wong Chun Wai is removed from its board of trustees.
I do not know how long it will take before the scales can be peeled off the eyes of Malaysians with regard to the DAP evangelistas.
And I do not care that 95 percent of Malaysian Chinese disagree with my views.
Time will prove me right. I’m very sure.
