What is sauce for the Goose, IS also sauce for the Gander

DESI seldom writes on specific RELIGION/S And /or the ROLE OF SULTANS IN MALAYSIAN politics UNLESS AND UNTIL I DEEM IT'S UNVOIDABLE IN THE NATION'S SCHEME OF THINGS as forces fight each other that could determine the LIFE OR DEATH OF the NATION.

TODAY, I VENture into this terrortry where even the angels fear to tread. AND DESI is NO Angel!

IT All started about a month ago, once upon a STATE territory where the PM Hails from, PAHANG, and he thinks it's "SAFE WATERS"!

FROM the OR :(



I have Pahang Sultan’s support, says Najib amid calls to resign as PM

Datuk Seri Najib Razak says he has support of the Sultan of Pahang to continue leading the country. – The Malaysian Insider pic by Afif Abd Halim, May 23, 2015.Datuk Seri Najib Razak says he has support of the Sultan of Pahang to continue leading the country. – The Malaysian Insider pic by Afif Abd Halim, May 23, 2015.Datuk Seri Najib Razak ‎today said he had support of the Sultan of Pahang to continue as prime minister, even as pressure mounts against him to step down.
He said Sultan Ahmad Shah's support as well as that of the people of his home state, Pahang, had strengthened his resolve to continue leading the country, despite attempts to "poison" his roots in his home ground.
"Some people are trying to threaten us. Some want to poison our roots, so we must make sure our tree continues to stand strong.

"Alhamdulillah, everyone supports us. Tuanku Sultan Ahmad Shah has also stated his stand from the beginning. "He said Pahang supports (me), from the sultan to the ordinary citizen," Najib told a crowd at the Royal Malaysian Air Force base in Kuantan, before departing for Kuala Lumpur.
Umno grassroots leaders had managed to mobilise some 12,000 youths, all dressed in black, for Najib's send-off at the airbase today.

AND about just a WEEK EARLIER, HERE Cometh from THESUNDAILY a report of a bold venture into UNCOMMON TERRORTORY as far as UMNO-OH-NO IS concerned.

Johor Sultan: Follow S’pore education system

JOHOR BARU: Follow Singapore’s education system with English as the medium of instruction.
This was the call by the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar (pix), at the opening ceremony of Johor state legislative assembly today.
“Singapore’s system has proven to be successful ... (it has) helped to unite the races (there),” he added.
“What we can emulate from Singapore is the unity which has been fostered by its single-stream education system which uses English language as the medium.
“I urge the people of Johor to be open-minded about the national education system and be willing to change for the prosperity of the people.
“I am confident a single stream school education system will produce a society that is united as well as competitive to face challenges to come,” the Sultan said.
He added that if the education system continues to be based on race and language, there will always be a gap between the diverse communities in Malaysia.
On the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Sultan Ibrahim said the state government should exempt local government services from the new tax regime.
“It is ridiculous to impose GST on local government services because it is the duty of local governments to render such services,” he said, adding that GST on local government services will only burden the rakyat.
The Sultan said he disagrees with the Johor Housing and Real Property Board Bill 2014, which was passed in June, last year.
He said if he approved the bill, it would not be in line with existing enactments which have been working well for a long time.
He asked the state assembly to make some amendments to the bill.
“The bill was amended because of pressure from ‘outsiders’ (orang luar) as people did not understand the role of the ruler in the Johor government.”
The ruler said the principle of “Johor must be Johor”(Johor mesti jadi Johor) should prevail.
DESIDERATA: JUST NOtes here many groups of MALAysians in the ensuing weeks applauded the JOHor SUltan for his forward thinking -- much to the chagrin of the UMNO-Oh-NO!Lites!:( DESI smiled the BIGGEST smile for a looonnngg, LONG time/dimes2!

THEN entering EVEN MORE UNCOMMON TERRORTRY, RAISING THE Temperatures several notches, to the CHAGRIN AGIN! OF the UMNO-OH-NO!LItes!


"Do not blame the people for losing trust in you.”

 | June 5, 2015
Crown Prince of Johor not surprised at the prime minister’s decision to give public dialogue Nothing2Hide a miss.
JOHOR BAHRU: Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, joined the growing tide of criticism against Prime Minister Najib Razak for cancelling his attendance at this morning’s Nothing2Hide forum at the Putra World Trade Centre.
In a Facebook post on his usual platform, the Johor Southern Tigers, Tunku Ismail described the prime minister as a person with “everything to hide”, and said it was only natural that such a person would not show up at an event called “Nothing2Hide”.
“How can you have a dialogue called “Nothing2Hide” featuring a person who has everything to hide? Obviously he won’t show up,” he said.
“For those who have been entrusted with the responsibility, do not blame the people for losing confidence and trust in you, but think of why they no longer have the confidence and trust in you.”
****Najib had given the event a miss following instructions from Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar to have the event cancelled due to security concerns i.e. what Khalid explained as reports that two unruly and opposing groups were set to cause a ruckus there.
Khalid had explained in a press conference this evening at Bukit Aman that the other reason for the cancellation was the organisers’ inability to control the situation especially when an unknown man was arrested for ramming through the door of the venue.
“The organiser wasn’t able to control the situation, so I took the opportunity to stop this dialogue,” said Khalid.
He also explained that Najib was getting ready to leave his residence for PWTC but that upon his stern orders to turn back, Najib did not attend.

DESI:  With reference to this para four-****above, DESi recalls that once upon a time, the MINister or DEputy on behalf of the POLice told PARliament that a police beat in CHow KIt had to be CLosed down as they were afraid of the "bad hats" in the area! ANd now a decade or two later, the IGP stated the same, at a well-ordered gathering/dialogue which mostly attracted urban and "Educated" people. The TOPGUN stated that he COULDN'T CONTROL SUCH A CROWD ENOUGH TO ENSURE SAFETY, IT SHUDDERS DESI WHAT ELSE COULD DO THE TASK? (FOOD For breakfast, cun!? as DESI works heART Resuming writing the moURn at 7.44AM after starting this post at Yesterday -- when all the IGP's troubles, mine2, seem'd so far away...-- SEE HOW I Love my ER!)


AND ONE UMNO TOPGUN/goon? ENTERS THE RING FULL OF GUNGHO! IS he loaded with ammon arising from bitternurse from suffering under DR MAhathir MOHamad's PMSHip?

Tourism and Culture Minister, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz indicated he would not be cowed by the Johor crown prince’s biting response to his criticism. — Picture by Yusof Mat IsaTourism and Culture Minister, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz indicated he would not be cowed by the Johor crown prince’s biting response to his criticism. — Picture by Yusof Mat IsaKUALA LUMPUR, June 15 — Datuk Mohamed Nazri Aziz declared tonight that he would not be cowed into submission by the Johor crown prince’s biting response to his criticism, saying he had as much right to voice his opinion as the royal does.

Acknowledging HRH Brigadier General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim’s reminder to him that he was “not a God from the heavens”, Nazri pointed out to the young prince that he had neither declared himself a God nor has masqueraded as one to the public.

“I want to reply to him that I never said that I’m God. I’m a Muslim and my God is Allah,” he told Malay Mail Online tonight.

“I am answerable to the rakyat and to the system. So I won’t back down. I believe that I am right,” he added.

Nazri went on to remind Tunku Ismail that in a constitutional monarchy like Malaysia’s, members of the royal family should not dabble in politics.

“The royalty is above politics. I don’t think that I’m wrong... we’ve practiced this system since Independence. Until and unless we change it, this is my position,” he said.

Nazri added that he would not have criticised the prince if the latter had not insinuated that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was guilty in the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.

Explaining this, Nazri pointed out that Tunku Ismail had alleged that Najib had “everything to hide” when the latter commented on the prime minister’s no-show at the recent “Nothing To Hide” forum.

“Those were his offensive words. If Tunku Ismail had merely said – I am very upset that PM didn’t turn up because it was an opportunity for him to speak to the rakyat – that would have been fair comment.

“But when you say that he has everything to hide... that is detrimental. It is saying that PM is guilty of all those allegations against him,” Nazri said.

The Johor royal had on June 5 weighed in on the “Nothing To Hide” forum that was cancelled at the last minute before a face-to-face confrontation between Najib and his harshest critic Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad over the prime minister’s controversial 1MDB project.

In his comment then, Tunku Ismail had said that inviting someone who allegedly has “everything to hide” to such a dialogue session would obviously result in a no-show.

He also said that those entrusted with the responsibility to answer to issues of national interest should not lay blame on the public if they lose their support but should ponder the reasons for such a loss.

Nazri later told the crown prince to stay out of politics, and was quoted saying in a Malaysiakini report last Saturday that “we will whack him”.

Earlier today, Tunku Ismail issued a response on the Facebook page of the Johor Southern Tigers where he told Nazri that, “You are a minister, not a God from the heavens who lord above everybody”.

****The royal also told Nazri that everyone has the right to voice their opinion although he said that this does not appear to be the case in Malaysia today as ministers here appear to think themselves “untouchable”.
