May 28, 2020


…who have called for a suspension of the production and sale of alcoholic beverages until the issue of drunk driving is resolved, what else can we propose? Suspend the Muafakat Nasional until the scourge of corruption in the country can be wiped out? Suspend PAS until it is Islamic?  

Muhyiddin, our patience is wearing thin

October 3, 2018


Your coalition, in your election manifesto, promised to repeal draconian laws, including the Sedition Act. This has yet to be done. If that’s not bad enough, PDRM, which comes under your purview, continues to investigate individuals under this law.

Doc, please cut the bullshit!

September 11, 2017


Many are quite taken in by Mahathir’s statement reported on Malaysiakini on 25/8/2017 that he does not believe in Ketuanan Melayu. I will write about this on another day. Today, I want to address the rest of the rubbish that he is reported to have said. “Earlier, he had said that the country had struck […]

You own your own company? A sendirian berhad? Who sets the philosophy, policy and direction of your company? You, or the employees? I know when I ran my own law firm, I was never seduced to go from sole proprietor to partnership simply because, remaining sole proprietor, I alone decided the philosophy, policy and direction […]

March 17, 2012


Ibrahim Ali has joined the bandwagon of the many others who hold themselves out as the defenders of Islam in calling for the enactment of an Apostasy Act. Malaysiakini has the report HERE.
