PEACE, KEAMANAN SEJAGAT – APAKAH SUMBANGAN KITA SEBAGAI RAKYAT?
Assalamualaikum dan Salam Keamanan,
“People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people”
(Rakyat tidak sepatutnya takut akan kerajaan. Kerajaanlah yang sepatutnya takut akan rakyat.)
“Peace is not the absence of war but the presence of justice.”
(Keamanan ialah bukan ketika tiada peperangan, tetapi ketika keadilan diwujudkan.)
Dua ungkapan di atas amatlah bersesuaian dengan topik kita pada kali ini, iaitu keamanan. Hati dan minda kita begitu peka terhadap keadaan yang tenang dan teratur, kerana ianya memberikan keamanan ke dalam jiwa kita. Keamanan itu, jika hilang daripada kehidupan seharian kita maka hati dan jiwa kita akan menjadi sakit, tidak tenteram.
IMPORTANT: This article, originally published on 31st July 2017, will be updated as the “New Malaysia” political scenarios and its related events develop.
UPDATED 16th February 2019: The “From Zero to Hero” prediction did happen in May 2018 when Pakatan Harapan (Coalition of Hope) won the 14th General Election in Malaysia.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE STARTS:
This is ‘The Chronological of Events’ from 1992 to 2001 (and extended). This is a classic case of “From Hero to Zero“, but who knows, it can turn out to be “From Zero to Hero” again very soon (if you know what I mean?) *sigh*
So, please go figure and connect the dots!
Note: These facts were painstakingly collected and researched from various reputable news sites around the globe (see references at the bottom of this article):
There is no probability in religion. Only in science.
If you are a faithful religionist, to you: Everything is preordained and what will happen, will always happen. What will not occur, will never occur. In maths, the calculation would be either 1 or 0. We call it The Matrix!
Just by reading the title of this article, you might be thinking that this is either about politics or religion. Am I right?
I am not a fan of politics, but I am very careful when discussing my own religion. In fact, I have to be careful when talking about any religion at all. This is because I am not an “Alim” (plural: Ulama) as normally the people call those scholars who have a strong understanding of Islamic religion in my home country Malaysia.
