Sudah tiba masanya anak muda berjuang dalam DAP , meruntuhkan dogma dan rasisma yang lama ditanam dalam benak rakyat Malaysia
Melati Rahim

SEREMBAN: Selepas peguam Melayu muda Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud dan anak gadis Melayu bertudung, Syefura Othman (Rara) menyertai parti DAP, kini Jamila Rahim atau lebih dikenali dengan panggilan Melati Rahim, 22, merupakan anak gadis Melayu terbaru menyertai parti yang terkenal dengan jolokan parti ‘chauvinist’ Cina tersebut.

Melati merupakan seorang graduan dari UNISEL dalam jurusan Diploma TESL.

Apabila ditanya kenapa Melati memilih DAP walaupun beliau berimej Islamik, Melati berkata wawasan dan asas DAP yang membuatkan beliau tertarik untuk bersama parti itu.

“Jika diteliti secara kasar, perlembagaan DAP itu sendiri, humanisme atau dasar kemanusiaan diletakkan sebagai tunjang dan teras utama.

“Dalam Islam sendiri, kemanusiaan adalah asas dan keperluan sebagai seorang insan.

“Sejujurnya, DAP lebih dekat dengan keadilan seperti yang digagaskan oleh Islam. Islam merupakan prinsip utama saya dalam meneruskan kehidupan sebagai hamba Tuhan.

“Namun dalam menjalani kehidupan dan berhadapan dengan manusia pelbagai kaum, saya percaya dasar kemanusiaan sangat penting.

“Saya ingin tegaskan disini, Islam adalah pegangan saya dan saya bersaksi tiada Tuhan yang patut di sembah melainkan Allah, Nabi Muhammad S.A.W pesuruh Allah.

“Dalam hal ini saya fikir kita harus buka dan lihat dalam kerangka lebih besar tentang kepelbagaian penganut agama di Malaysia,” katanya.

DAP menentang ‘kapitalisme parti’

Melati berkata beliau yakin tiada penganut dalam mana-mana agama merasakan agama mereka salah dan jika semua agama mahu pertahankan hak mereka tanpa bertolak-ansur dan bertoleransi, maka hancurlah dunia angkara peperangan kerana prejudis dan saling benci-membenci.

“Misalnya, kita lihat di Gaza pihak Yahudi secara terbuka mengaku ingin merobohkan Masjid Aqsa kerana ingin mendirikan semula Kuil Sulaiman yang pernah di bina dibawah Masjid Aqsa.

“Andai perkara ini dilihat pada dasar agama, pihak Yahudi sebenarnya sedang memperjuangkan hak agama mereka walau pada dasar kemanusiaan sebenarnya tanah tersebut milik Palestin.
“Jadi, soal moraliti dan kemanusian harus kita jadikan indikator dalam menilai perkara ini.

“Sesungguhnya Allah meletakkan darjat manusia itu tinggi. Seorang pemikir Barat zaman Ranaissance , Pico Della Mirandola pernah menyebut “nihil spectari homine admirabilius”, yang membawa maksud tiada yang lebih indah dari manusia. Maka, mari kita baca dan fikir-fikirkan.

“DAP menentang ‘kapitalisme parti’, mereka mempraktikkan perkara ini dengan meminta setiap ahli parlimen dibawah DAP mewakafkan di antara 20 hingga 30% daripada gaji mereka kepada parti.
“Senaraikan kepada saya siapa ahli parlimen di dalam DAP yang memakai kereta mewah selepas menjadi wakil rakyat?

DAP bukanlah parti Cina yang anti Islam

Melati turut mengulas bahawa DAP juga gigih menjalankan khidmat dalam perkara berkaitan perlaksanaan perkhidmatan kesihatan dan dasar–dasar keselamatan sosial.

Selain itu, pelindungan terhadap warga tua, orang kurang upaya dan miskin tegar juga menjadi isu utama dalam DAP. Ia dipraktikkan di Pulau Pinang dengan pelbagai jenis bantuan.

“Di negeri naungan DAP itu juga mempunyai briged yang ditugaskan menjaga keselamatan awam di kawasan masing-masing dengan kelengkapan penuh yang di taja sepenuhnya oleh kerajaan Pulau Pinang.

“Hadirnya wakil rakyat dari kaum Melayu dan India seperti Zairil Khir dan Ram Karpal menguatkan lagi bukti bahawa DAP bukanlah parti Cina yang anti Islam.

“Saya yakin dalam hal ini kita harus berlapang dada dan cuba melihat dengan mata hati.

“Rumi pernah berkata aku beriman dengan agama Cinta, dan Islam adalah agama yang penuh dengan nilai cinta namun dirosakkan oleh manusia yang menjadikan agama sebagai senjata untuk menindas manusia yang lemah.

“Politik Islam meletakkan keadilan sosial dan kemanusiaan sebagai teras dan saya melihat ciri-ciri ini wujud dalam DAP.

“Saya yakin sudah tiba masanya anak muda bersama-sama berjuang dalam DAP dan meruntuhkan segala dogma dan sifat rasisma yang sekian lama ditanam dalam benak rakyat Malaysia,” kata Melati.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 29 — Muslims enamoured with the Islamic State jihadist movement in Syria could be tempted to replicate the violent revolution in Malaysia, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad suggested today.

Warning Putrajaya that it no longer has the Internal Security Act (ISA) to deal with such a contingency, Dr Mahathir said it was not impossible that rebels from neighbouring countries might attempt invade Malaysia to form an “Islamic state” here.

“A call for form an ‘Islamic state’ is very tempting to Muslim youths anywhere because they are disappointed that there is no government or country that is willing to save Islam, Muslims, and the Islamic countries,” he wrote on his personal blog, Chedet.cc, today

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng claims Barisan Nasional is taking advantage of the Sedition Act to destroy all political opposition. — Picture by Saw Siow Feng

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 26 ― The latest sedition onslaught against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Lim Kit Siang shows the Barisan Nasional (BN) government is taking maximum advantage of the 1948 law it has promised to repeal, to destroy all political opposition, the DAP said today.

In a strongly-worded statement, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng also accused former civil society activist-turned-minister Datuk Paul Low of being complicit in the federal government’s war of attrition against its political adversaries with his latest defence of the use of the Sedition Act as a necessary tool to preserve peace and harmony in Malaysia’s multiracial society.

“How can Paul Low be so blind, unfeeling and irresponsible as not to see that the Sedition Act is used as a political weapon of mass destruction against those opposing BN whom BN wants to eliminate?” the Bagan MP and Penang chief minister said.

Guan Eng continued hitting out at Low, calling the former president of anti-graft watchdog Transparency International Malaysia a “Mr Hyde” for switching from opposing the colonial-era law to supporting it.

The question of government recognition of the independent Chinese secondary schools UEC is not a new issue and in fact, the Prime Minister met the Chinese educationist groups prior to last year’s general election to discuss the issue.

However, till today the issue remains unresolved despite the fact that the certificate has been recognised by top universities worldwide.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 25 — The defence in academic Assoc Prof Dr Azmi Sharom’s sedition rap argued today that the Sedition Act 1948 cannot stand a constitutional test as it was not created by an act of Parliament.

Lead counsel Gobind Singh Deo said legitimate concerns arise over the validity of the Act, as Article 10(2) of the Federal Constitution clearly states that only Parliament may enact a law that imposes restrictions on freedom of expression, assembly and association.

He noted that the Act initially took form as an ordinance created by the British before Independence, and subsequently amended to become an Act by a law revision commission in 1969.

Photo: Dear friends, the DAP has been bullied by ROS for two years. We were forced to hold fresh central executive committee (CEC) without any valid reason, and yet ROS refused to recognise the re-election result. So the DAP brought the case to court. Today both parties reached consent judgement. </p>
<p>In other words, we won in the court!!  Below is the consent judgement.<br />
-------------------------------------------- </p>
<p>Settlement statement by DAP and ROS in the DAP legal suit against ROS on the legality of the DAP CEC on 23 September 2014:-</p>
<p>There are three parts of concern in the letter of the ROS to DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng dated 6.12.2013.</p>
<p>The first relates to a request for documents under s14 of the Societies Act 1966. There is no problem with this request. The DAP has complied with it and will continue to assist the ROS in any queries it has relating to the affairs of the DAP.</p>
<p>The second relates to a statement made by the ROS in the said letter to the effect that the ROS is yet unable to recognize the re-election of the CEC of the DAP on 29.9.2013 and;</p>
<p>The third relates to advice given to Lim Guan Eng that the new CEC which “belum disahkan” cannot make decisions for and on behalf of the DAP until further notice from the ROS.</p>
<p>The ROS now takes the position that those statements do not amount to any decision in law. As such, those orders are not legally binding and remain merely advice to the DAP and the ROS recognises that the DAP CEC elected on 29.9.2013 may carry out all its powers, functions and duties in the administration of the daily affairs of the DAP in accordance with the Constitution of the DAP.

Early this month, 112 NGOs formed the ‘Abolish the Sedition Act’ (GHAH) movement. It will be organising a peaceful protest against the Sedition Act. – The Malaysian Insider pic by Najjua Zulkefli, September 21, 2014.

Malaysians must protest against political repression and force Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to fulfil his promise to repeal the Sedition Act as promised two years ago, DAP lawmaker Teresa Kok said today.

The DAP vice-chairman said the current sedition blitz stifled freedom of expression and  showed that Najib’s promise to repeal the act and pledge for political reconciliation as hollow and insincere.

“How many more people will be arrested and charged in the new crackdown which is an obvious selective prosecution against government critics?” the Seputeh MP asked.

She said despite widespread criticism against the government’s move, Najib has not stopped the crackdown.
