The government of Pakatan Rakyat does not last long in Perak. Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir of Barisan National took over the post of Menteri Besar and Datuk Seri Muhammad Nizar Jamaluddin of Pakatan Rakyat had to evacuate the seat. Datuk Nizar was rather reluctant to leave the post and the house of Menteri Besar. However, he finally surrendered. When he left the house and the office of Menteri Besar, the public thinks that the problem solved and Datuk Seri Nizar will drop his claim to be Menteri Besar. However, the stories did not end there. The claim to become Menteri Besar continues and the case brought to the court. Prior to that, there are several demonstrations and public outcry asking for general election in Perak. Recently the case was brought to the court and the court unanimously decided that Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir maintain as the Menteri Besar of Perak.
When the court have decided unanimously that Datuk Seri Zambry was the Menteri Besar, the public think that the case has ended and everyone hopes that the political scenario of Perak will be back to normal. In normal practice, once the court has decided, everyone should obey and accepted it as final. Muslims on the other hand should regard it as decision from Allah. All Muslims should believe that the judges could not make any decision without the permission of Allah. Allah is the one that made Datuk Seri Nizar as Menteri Besar and Allah is the one that give the position to Datuk Seri Dr Zambry. Muslims should believe that nothing would happen except with the permission of Allah. In normal democratic practice, Datuk Seri Nizar cannot become the Menteri Besar of Perak. When Pakatan Rakyat wins in Perak the Menteri Besar of Perak should be from DAP since the majority of seats in Pakatan Rakyat were won by DAP.
Allah made Datuk Seri Nizar to become Menteri Besar of Perak .The constitutions of the states of Perak says that Menteri Besar of Perak must be Malay and Muslims and His Majesty the Sultan of Perak uses his power as bestowed by the constitution to appoint Datuk Seri Nizar as the Menteri Besar of Perak. What happen in Perak clearly showed the power of Allah. There is no power to honor or to disgrace except Allah. There is no power to give government or to take away government except Allah. Datuk Seri Nizar should ponder on these points; did Datuk Seri Nizar have ever imagined becoming Menteri Besar of Perak. Did Datuk Seri Nizar have ever dreamed to become the Menteri Besar of Perak? Just before the election, did Datuk Seri Nizar ever imagine winning in the elections and did Datuk Seri Nizar have ever dreamed that Pakatan Rakyat would ever win in Perak. Before the general election in 2008, no one ever predicted that the opposition party might win with such number of seats and able to form a government in almost five states. Everyone says that the result of the general election in 2008 was unexpected and even many stalwarts of Barisan National such as Datuk Seri Samy Vellu and Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil lost their seats.
Many admitted that the results of the general election were unexpected and they call it a political tsunami. Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim did make a target before the general election to win seventy parliamentary seats but members of Barisan National laughed at him, and they call it, a dream. Allah did everything and none can do except Allah. Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim may not be expecting to achieve his targets but the targets achieved. He must have been caught by surprised at the results of the general election. Our previous Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was not expecting, Barisan National could lose so many seats and lose two third majorities in the parliament, the first ever happen to the ruling party in history.
Who make all this to happen if not Allah? No one can make this to happen except Allah. Who sent the tsunami to hit Bandar Aceh if not Allah? No one is expecting that such a city collapsed in a matter of minutes. Allah sent waves from the sea with a speed of nearly 800 km an hour and as high as twenty feet to hit Bandar Aceh. Many are still sleeping and some were about to take breakfast but all of a sudden, they are gone from this world. As a Muslims, all of us including Datuk Seri Muhammad Nizar must believe that there is no God except Allah, which means there is no one that does everything accepts Allah. Allah, who made Datuk Seri Nizar to become Menteri Besar and it, is also Allah that made Datuk Seri Nizar to step down as Menteri Besar. It is not Barisan National or Datuk Seri Zambry that bring Datuk Seri Nizar down. The one that bring Datuk Seri Nizar down is Allah. I am requesting Datuk Seri Nizar and all his supporters particularly, Pas members to accept the decision of Allah. Pas should advice their associate members who are non-Muslims in DAP to accept the decision of Allah.
When members of the opposition party behave erroneously in the State Assembly meeting, it gives a very bad impression to the world about our discipline and integrity. When people’s representative in Malaysia behaves very much undisciplined while attending meeting in the State Assembly, what will be their behaviors outside the meeting. The whole world would think that Malaysians are very much-undisciplined people, when they know the ones who represent them are much undisciplined. Headlines Utusan Malaysia read like this…Macam di zoo…, which means the condition of the State Assembly meeting, is like in the zoo, which implied that our people’s representatives behave likes animals.
I am very sorry to quote such words but that is the true impressions that reporters had when they attended the meeting. When we become the representative of the peoples, we should behave well and we should be very disciplines. We are attending meeting and not demonstrations. We are not in the meeting to express our grudges and complain but to discuss what brings benefit to the people. As a Muslims, I am so ashamed to see the picture of Datuk Seri Nizar standing and shouting and holding papers on his hand. We do not want to copy the way; Taiwanese members of Parliaments conduct themselves in a meeting. We should learn how the American members of Parliaments conduct themselves in a meeting. In the United States of America, everyone regardless of the party that they represent is free to votes for the laws that benefit the peoples, even though the opposition party mooted the laws.
As an example, when President Barrack Obama wants to send another additional thirty thousand soldiers to Afghanistan, all the members of Republicans and Democrats unanimously agreed. When we are in the Parliaments or in the State Assembly, we are no longer representing the party but the people. Everyone must think and behave as the representatives of the people and not the party. When we are campaigning during general election, we can think and behave as the representative of our party but when we are in Parliamentary or State Assembly meetings, we should think and behave as people’s representatives. Many of our members of Parliaments and State Assembly are very immature politicians.
Datuk Seri Nizar and all the DAP States Assembly men should not bring Chinese culture into malaysian politics. We should not form group and become obsessed with our groups like the ‘Kongsi Gelap’group. We must think as Malaysians and sit in the meetings as Malaysians. Whether we are holding power or not, the most important thing that matters is responsibilities. When we can discharge our responsibilities, Allah will make us honored. Datuk Seri Nizar and Pas Members must ponder on the mistakes that they have committed that makes Allah to overturn their fortunes. In case Datuk Seri Nizar feels highly disgraced by the incidents, he should believe that honor, disgrace comes from Allah, and Allah disgraced us because of our own wrongdoings. Datuk Seri Nizar should make repentance and asked forgiveness from Allah. The more wrong doings we do, the more Allah will make us disgraced. The more we do good amals the more honored we become.
