Sex and the Decay of the M'sian State

(sorry Malaysiakini- I thought this was damn good and truly want more people to read it)

The interweaving of sex, money and power to kill a political opponent has dominated Malaysian politics for more than a decade, leading to the decay of its pillars of integrity.

First, the recent pornographic screening of a sex video in a hotel for the press involving a foreign sex worker is an assault on all women. Prostitution and pornography harm women. Prostitution commodifies women, exploits their poverty and powerlessness.

Pornography portrays women as sexual objects and men as consumers of a sex industry dominated by corruption, crime such as trafficking of women.

How is it possible for a foreign woman to work as a sex worker in a KL spa without the knowledge of the police, the Immigration and City Hall? Aren't these authorities monitoring the activities of spas? (I am hearing women now fear going to spas as they seem to be fronts for prostitution and there are cameras to capture women showering, having a massage.)

The screening of this video in government-owned Carcosa Seri Negara is not possible without state sanction.

One of the trio involved is an Umno stalwart, former chief minister, current chairman of Risda - the association to protect the interests of rubber smallholders, who have remained poor and powerless. The chairman has abused his powers as head of a government organisation to use a state facility to screen a pornographic video.

azlan(Former Malacca chief minister Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) treasurer Shuib Lazim, have admitted that they were part of the 'Datuk T' trio responsible for keeping and screening the video to members of the media at Carcosa Seri Negara last week.)

The chairman should not only be charged with breach of section 292 of the Penal Code but also perhaps with corruption. Transparency International defines corruption as abuse of power.

But a Minister in the Prime Minister's Department has announced that the purveyors of the sex video would be offered protection under the Witness Protection Act as well as the Whistleblowers Act if there is a case against them. (He later made an about-turn.) This will defeat the purpose of these two pieces of legislation in cases related to rape, child abuse and corruption, etc.

Pillars of integrity decaying rapidly

The national pillars of integrity are decaying rapidly when those who have breached laws of the country are assured protection by the state. Have we begun to revere those who flaunt laws to kill political opponents? Once we have reached such a stage, crime and corruption become non-issues in the election of political representatives.

Parliament is a fundamental pillar of a nation's integrity system. Parliament must comprise of individuals of integrity. Parliament will lose whatever respect it has if it is going to be filled with those who have abused their positions, bribed and rigged themselves into power.

Said Niccolo Machiavelli, “Those who talk about the peoples of our day being given to robbery and similar vices will find that they are all due to the fact that those who ruled them behave in the same manner.” When the incidence of crime such as robberies, rape, child abuse, corruption etc increase, it is a reflection of a decaying legislature .

The executive used sex in 1998 to send to jail Anwar Ibrahim, a political opponent the state feared. After serving a six-year jail term, the conviction against sodomy was overturned. But the significant gains made by the opposition in 2008 rang alarm bells for the state (the party in power). Again, sex became the weapon for seeking the demise of a powerful opponent. Anwar is on trial for the second time on charges of sodomy.

The role of an important pillar of integrity, an independent judicial system, is central for a just, open and accountable government. The overturning of the first sodomy charge against Anwar speaks volumes about the independence and accountability of the judiciary. Was the judiciary independent of the executive in this sex and the state case?

NONEThe revelations of a former director-general of the Anti-Corruption Agency, Shafee Yahaya (right), during Anwar's trial throws light on the interference of the executive in the functions of the ACA.

Shafee's court statement was related to former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's directive that the ACA cease investigating then Economic Planning Unit director-general Ali Abul Hassan Sulaiman in June 1998. In his recent memoirs, Mahathir referred to Shafee as a hostile witness in the sodomy case. Shafee is a rare civil servant who stood up for the truth.

When the state uses sex to stay in power, the decay of the pillars of integrity such as the Parliament, police, judiciary, ACA, local authorities, Immigration, media and civil society becomes imminent.

Information central to integrity system

It has been said power is about controlling the means of communication. But information is central to a nation's integrity system. A free media and an independent judiciary are powerful counter forces to check those in positions of power.

azlanThe Malaysian media, particularly the mainstream media's reporting of the ongoing sodomy case and screening of a sex video obviously favours the proprietors of the media. The media owners are primarily political parties in the ruling coalition. I have yet to see an editorial condemning the use of sex by the state to kill political opponents. The mainstream media appears to have gone into damage control mode to protect those who screened the sex video.

Civil society, another pillar of integrity, gains its legitimacy from promoting the public interest. The sex video is a matter of grave public interest. In the 1998 sodomy case, children were asking parents: what is sodomy? Today I am told, some young people are asking, “Why are grandfathers involved in the screening of sex videos??”

What message are we sending to our young? That it is all right to use sex to get rid of your opponents?? Civil society, particularly, women's groups, religious entities, parents, etc must stop this rot.

When the state uses sex as a weapon to destroy political opposition, political leaders will not be remembered as statesmen but as practitioners of gutter politics.

JOSIE M FERNANDEZ has taken up the cudgels for women, children, farmers, the environment, free press and against corruption.

Harussani:- "Poco-poco" has "soul-worshipping" & "Christian elements"!!

" Having wearied of the struggle to be himself,
he has created his own boredom out of his own affluence,
his own impotence out of his own erotomania,
his own vulnerability out of his own strength;
himself blowing the trumpet that brings the walls
of his own city tumbling down until at last....;
having educated himself into imbecility,
and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction,
he keels over a weary, battered old brontosaurus and becomes extinct.”

- Malcolm Muggeridge, Seeing Through the Eye: Malcolm Muggeridge on Faith (p. 16)

This is what a website ("WanWMA") has mentioned about this issue
(please go to the website for his own opinion):

Saya terbaca banyak perkara tentang Poco-poco yang diharamkan. Namun pengharaman itu tiadbukti sahih dan bukan dijatuhkan oleh badan berwajib. Ia cuma dinyatakan oleh sebuah email yang tidak tahu siapa penulisnya, di mana dia mendapat fakta, apakah butinya dan sejauh mana kebenarannya. Bagaimanapun email ini telah tersebar luas dalam internet samada melalui email mahu pun blog. Inilah email yang saya maksudkan:


Alhamdulillah kerana kita semua masih bernafas lagi dgn keizinanNya. Saya ingin berkongsi dgn rakan2 semua tantang tarian pocoh2 yang sedang hangat ditarikan oleh semua lapisan masyarakat,umumnya masyarakat kita yg beragama islam terutama suri2 rumah dan badan2 kerajaan ketika manghadiri kursus.

Sebenarnya tarian pocoh2 ini berasal dari Filipina bukannya dari Indon.Ia ditarikan oleh masyarakat yg berugama kristian ketika mereka menghadiri upacara sembahyang mingguan mereka.Lihatlah sahaja bagaimana pergerakannya, yg membentuk salib.

Mungkin kita x perasan kerana kita suka mengikut2 sesuatu yg baru tanpa usul periksa. Inilah cara musuh2 islam mengenakan kita sedangkan kita tahu apabila kita melakukan sesuatu yg menyerupai sesuatu agama maka kita dikira merestui agama itu seperti amalan yoga yg telah difatwakan haram kerana menyerupai agama hindu.cuma tarian pocoh2 ini belum difatwakan haram lagi. Marilah kita sama2 fikirkan.

tarian poco-poco

So to all those exercise lovers- a friendly warning:-
Beware of your physical movements, okay ....
(especially when you wake up in the morning to stretch)
lest you make movements with "soul-worshipping & Christian elements"
and God-forbid- your faith be shaken .....
