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):

ENJOY!

KEBANGKITAN RAKYAT – TEORI PERTUMBUHAN POPULASI GOLONGAN PERTENGAHAN.

Assalamualaikum dan Salam Keamanan,

Pada tahun 1982, September – Tun Dr. Mahathir (kini negarawan ulung Malaysia: edited 18th July 2017), ketika itu sebagai Presiden parti melayu terbesar di dunia berucap di perhimpunannya menggesa agar rakyat Malaysia berusaha untuk meningkatkan jumlah rakyat daripad 18 juta orang kepada 70 juta dalam jangkamasa 120 tahun. Ianya bertujuan untuk meningkatkan produktiviti negara, dan menyediakan satu pasaran yang besar untuk ekonomi negara.

Part 2: Sepak Takraw is a unique sport from Malaysia and we are the best in the World!

According to some historical documents, Malaysia is the sole inventor of “Sepak Takraw” which was originally called Sepak Raga.

However, Thailand, being the mightiest Kingdom in the South East Asian region at that time competed with the Malacca Kingdom by declining to admit that Sepak Takraw was originated from Malaysia. The Thais said that Sepak Takraw was originated from Thailand, and the game should be called Takraw instead!

I haven’t made any Official Raya announcement to date because I was busy eating kuih raya and some ketupat rendangs. By the way, rendang is one of my favorite dishes! Haha!

Hmm… Although the Raya ‘mood’ has slowly been replaced with other more important events such as Summer Holiday and Puasa Enam (sunnah fasting for 6 days in the month of Syawal), this is not going to stop me from entering another article about Hari Raya. Well, it is not going to be a very long entry, believe me. I have some ketupats and rendangs to eat. Err, that does not sound right. I should have started my puasa enam already!
