"This is the time for the bloggers to do something useful and not just use their blogs to condemn the government" - Zahid Hamidi, Minister in the PM's Department.
This guy is still rather THICK up there. Now he is playing the race and religion card. He is trying to muster Muslim bloggers to whack anything Dutchie because of the Fitna movie. He seems to be aping that pre-GE12 loud-mouth up on Bukit Paarliament. For a fact, I can say without any hesitation that BLOGGERS DON'T SELL THEIR SOULS to any bidders. You don't condemn the whole family because of the sins of the father, do you? Go ahead and put a fatwa on this Wilder guy, but you don't put a red dot on all Dutch Products. (Aside: will the government compensate Mydin if customerslin boycott those red-dotted products?) We used to refer to these as knee-jerks or quick-fixes. Is this the decision of the newly branded Cabinet? So Zahid, do'nt use bloggers to do your dirty work. Try Azalina's band of whacky troopers, that is if she has not directed their efforts to thwart the tourism efforts of the 5 opposition states. Is treachery or sabotage the politically correct word here? This is the selllng of the soul bit......so what's with the selling of the body?
This is the grand plan of this same Zahid, as reported by Bernama:
The Prime Minister's Department and the Malaysian Missionary Foundation (Yadim) will try to assist former child maths genius Sufiah Yusof, now aged 23 and fending for herself as a prostitute in Salford, Manchester.
Zahid said they would help the gifted girl to return to the right path through the "Save Sufiah Programme".
"The first thing we should try to do is to contact her mother or arrange a meeting with Sufiah to find out the real reasons for her to turn to prostitution, offering her services through the Internet and using the name Shilpa Lee," he told reporters after attending a biefing by Yadim here Tuesday.
It has been reported in the "News of the World" that Sufiah is now a 130- pound an-hour hooker operating from her dingy back street flat.
The "Save Sufiah Programme" is headed by Deputy Minister in the PM's Department Mashitah Ibrahim (she of a certain fatwa) who will come up with strategies to assist Sufiah as soon as possible.
Sufiah created news when she was accepted into Oxford University at age just 13. Her mother, Malaysian-born Halimaton Yusof from Muar, Johor, and her father, Farooq Yusof from Pakistan both tutored her and her siblings at home.
However, Farooq is now in jail after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls whom he home tutored in maths.
Has anyone asked if Sufiah is a Malaysian? I believe the mother, who is already in the midst of divorcing Farooq, is a Malaysian. But is Sufiah? I am not saying that we should only help Malaysians in their time of need. I am saying that we need to focus on what needs to be done at home for our people.
Nurin's murderers are still at large! WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE MUCH PUBLICIZED NURIN ALERT?
Nini is still missing! The thousands of cops assigned to GE duty would be back to base by now.
A 11 year old boy is also still missing.....and his pictures are not plastered all over the place. Why?
We have hordes of children of prostitutes, roaming around Jalan Raja Laut and the ChowKit/Tiong Nam area instead of being in school. BUT THEY CANNOT ATTEND SCHOOL because THEY DO NOT HAVE BIRTH CERTIFICATES to qualify them to attend school. As long as they wander, they are victims of you know what! Isn't is more important to save these souls? If nothing is done, these will sell their body and souls!
Why don't our saviours of souls Zahid and Mashita train their sights and focus their efforts on home base. Is it more glamorous to go international when back home we can't resolve basic problems?
Sufiah, as I see it is sorting out her life, sublimating some conflicts that you and I cannot understand. She is an intelligent girl, who endured much. She will have to find her own solace and our campur tangan may not be what she wants. I say, leave her be. Our prayers for her may help though but not some government-hatched feel-good program, no matter how well-intentioned. Leave her be.Focus on our kids at home.
