The question of hudud and Pakatan's future

24/04/2015 07:56 AM
Pakatan has the Permatang Pauh and Rompin by-elections to get their act together, and show us that they can still be better in running this nation.
Hussein Hamid
It has been forgotten that Pakatan Rakyat is a collection of individual political parties, each with their own political agenda and each committed to working together to bring change to Malaysian politics.

If DAP had allowed the dust to settle over hudud, they would have seen that hudud is precisely one of the reasons why Pakatan will be stronger because in diversity it is still one.

The need to reverse these basic instincts and perceived problems that many of those within DAP have over hudud would have been best handled by leaders who understand that the bigger picture is about change.

Change that will also, hopefully and over time, even overtake hudud.

Quickies : Not Responsible!

No cash in 1MDB’s Singapore account

BSI Singapore alerts Singapore authorities that 1MDB CEO Arul Kanda supplied false documents.

1MDB, touted as a strategic investment arm, comes under the oversight of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak who also doubles as Finance Minister. 

1MDB has chalked up debts of RM42 billion within five years.

Najib told Parliament on March 11, in reply to questions from Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua, that “the remaining USD1.103 billion had already been redeemed from Brazen Sky’s offshore fund in the Cayman Islands and was now being ‘kept in US currency’ at BSI Bank Limited, Singapore”.

Not Responsible says Najib!
