Update (11.42am): Clashes in Islamabad, the Pakistan capital. The army moves in (see below).
Dapster-Protun rebels ought to be careful what they wish for when instigating an uprising through civil unrest. The rest of our country want peace and stability.
We cannot escape the significance of the Easter Sunday date and the negative response it evokes in some Muslim quarters.
Yesterday, a bomb went off in Lahore’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park. The park is popular among the local Christian community, many of whom were there to celebrate the Easter holiday.

Why choose Easter Sunday to kick off the movement?
There are 366 days this year. Out of these 366 days, why wasn’t Tun Mahathir’s showpiece held on any other day of the calendar? Why choose Easter Sunday in particular?

Easter Sunday is even more significant religiously than is Christmas. It marks Jesus’ resurrection — the rising of Christ.
In the context of the Dapster-Protun event yesterday, it was a call for an uprising. Tun was greeted was shouts of “Reformasi!”.
Siapa sangka Tun akan sanggup bersekongkol dan sebaris dengan DAP?

The Taleban and Pakistan in all its dysfunctionality is an American Christian problem. They created the Taleban we all know from historic records of the Mujahideen US support for them and their subsequent failures to contain or disband them after the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan had ended.
Modern day Pakistan is the creation of a rabidly anti Soviet, anti Indian, and sometimes anti Chinese US. Seeking to destabilize the region they assisted in installing then removing compliant and non complaint undemocratic despots in Pakistan who did and did not do their bidding.
What occurred on Easter Sunday in Pakistan cannot be blamed on Muslims and Pakistanis any more than we can blame Christians and Jews for much of the world’s problems and conflicts which anyone can conveniently join the dots according to their views to prove that is is the case. it is much more complex than that.
Pakistan is a failed state as are Libuya, Irak and Afghanistan. They all have a nexus to the same vortex of American imperialism. Or should I say western imperialism, France, Britain, Italy and Holland included.
Easter in Pakistan marks the resurrection of Christ and the Taleban believed by many to have died a long time ago.
Let us recall the valiant mujahideen Ahmad Shah Massoud who spearheaded the Afghan peoples’ resistance against the Soviet Union. For his anti-Wahhabi stance he was assassinated by Bin Laden’s Talibanis
Many of the Afghan mujahidin fighters who battled against the Soviet communist invasion were learned Sufis. They resisted all detrimental foreign interests in Afghanistan including the ambitions of the Saudi sponsored Talibans.
Since his childhood, Ahmad Massoud was considered exceedingly talented. From the 10th grade onwards his school acknowledged him as a particularly gifted student.
His native tongue was Persian, but he was fluent in French, Pashto, and Urdu; and he had a working knowledge of the Arabic language. Massoud: “For me, North, South, Persian, Pashto is absolutely meaningless. In our home, we can speak in every language.“
He always inspired in his peers his love for culture and sports.
In 1968, the then 14-year old Massoud put together the first volleyball team in his home-village Jangalak. During summer breaks, he organized volleyball tournaments attended by youngsters from Jangalak and the neighbouring villages.
His humble, open-minded, and disciplined character made him not only popular but also a natural leader among his many friends.
Massoud had many interests, which he could not spend any more time on later. His favourite sports were soccer, horse riding, swimming and karate. He was also the dedicated coach for a soccer team. Massoud: “We lived in Karte Parwan, where I had some very good friends. We were about 50 to 60 people. At that time I was in 7th grade at the Lycée Istiqlaal, where I was in charge of the team.”
Moreover, he was a passionate chess player and reader. Among his favourite prose literature were books on travels and about history. As for lyrical works, he favoured the Sufi writings of Mawlana Jalaluddin-e Balkhi, Sanayi Ghaznawi, Bedil, and Hafez. Ahmad Massoud: “I love Hafez’ poems. I always read them. They change and inspire me. Music speaks to the innermost feelings of a human being. Poetry and music can influence everyone.”
And still, after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”
Look what happens with
A Love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
– the friend of Allah, Hāfez

Saya ingat dia kena bunuh (by CIA guna set up media) sebab US nak Mujahideen dan Taliban berperang sesama sendiri sebelum US berani nak masuk dan jajah Afghanistan. Bukan eh?
…….LKS dlm video tu gesa rakyat semua bangsa selamatkan Malaysia?…issshh
Tu la.. Puluhan2 tahun dulu ada Superman amboi mak sombong sangat. Nah, sekarang Superman dah mati baru kalut nak cari Melayu2 dari kalangan UMNO minta tolong sama2 selamatkan Malaysia.
yg org umno terhegeh2 ikut program yg bersekongkol dgn DAP tu apa crita?? maksudnya, org umno pun dah tak tahan dgn perangai najib dan penyamunnya…
MCA’s Ti Lian Ker reminds Tun that Reformasi “marked the beginning of massive street rallies as part of political culture in Malaysia” — see banner news headline currently in FMT.
Look at the Empat Sekawan bersekongkol in the picture above.
Who are their supporters?
If the Dapster-Protuns take to the streets, will the demos assume a racial tone?
Who are the likely participants? (i) and Tun, Tian Chua and Mat Sabu
Hadi and PAS are not going to get involved.
Hadi and whatever left of PAS has better chance teaming up with umno, then both can push forward the hudud agenda nationally…..and that would push Malaysia to a first world status
Sooo surrealll …
Who is Ti Lian ker , if MCA is 100% behind Najib ,can he promised 100% of MCA members will vote for BN and UMNO in the coming GE.
He should tell that to LKS when they organize “bersih” but he didn’t.
The more the merrier!
The world is overcrowded now. Spring cleaning is good.
70 too little. 7000 would hv created bigger impact.
Yet, killing the innocents would hv been barbaric and bastardy.
What kind of people they are. Worst than the dapsters
“Whoever is bestowed his portion of kindness has been bestowed his portion of goodness, and whoever is deprived of his portion of kindness has likewise been deprived of his portion of goodness.”
(At-Tirmidhi no. 2013)
“It has been narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar that the Holy Prophet (May be upon him) said: “Beware, every one of you is a shepherd and every one is answerable with regard to his flock. The Caliph is a shepherd over the people and shall be questioned about his subjects (whether he ruled over them with justice and mercy). A man is a guardian over the members of his family and shall be questioned about them (as to how he looked after their physical and moral well-being). A woman is a guardian over the household of her husband and his children and shall be questioned about them (as to how she managed the household and brought up the children). A servant is a guardian over the property of his master and shall be questioned about it (as to how he safeguarded his master’s interests). Beware, every one of you is a Guardian and every one of you shall be questioned with regard to his Trust.”
(Sahih Muslim no. 4496)
“There has certainly come to you a Messenger from amongst yourselves. Grievous to him is your suffering and he is concerned over you; to the faithful he is most kind and merciful.”
(Quran, At-Tawbah 9:128)
“Then We sent Our messengers in their footsteps and followed them with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. We placed in the hearts of those who truly followed him, kindness and mercy.”
(Quran, Al-Hadid 57:27)
