Toyol is a kind of ‘small ghosty’ thing in Malay mitology which normally used by the pawangs or bomoh to steal something or to disturb someone. However, currently our country is getting a real toyol who is creating disturbances to many people – especially in Selangor.
Digging up my older post in “Babi pun beh tahan” (one of my hottest posts), I found out that the Seputeh MP Teresa Kok has “almost” landed herself in trouble when she posted innocently some pictures of ‘roasted pork’ in her blog and our toyol – at that time was still new to blogs, quickly linked her to the pig farming project proposed by the state government of Selangor. But due to the fact that after it was revealed that the pig farming was the brain child of another umno chieftain, the issue was dropped without much damage to our Sister Teresa.
However, with only reasons known to the toyol himself, he was so damned determined to nail Teresa and has been waiting for a good time to strike again. Lady luck seemed to be smiling at him ( I wonder how on earth could lady luck have smiled on a ghost) when a group of innocent residents in Kirara submitted a petition to a local mosque to tone down the loudhailers during some ceramah agama and the issue was quickly blown out of porpotion by the toyol.
According to Malaysiakini, former Selangor Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo has earlier alleged that Kok, who is Kinrara state representative, of submitting the petition calling for the mosque to “tone down” the azan (the call to prayers).
Mohd Khir caused a stir when he was quoted as having warned the Pakatan Rakyat-led Selangor government against issuing directives against the use of loudspeakers by mosques and suraus (community prayer hall) for purposes of the azan.
“This matter has been allowed to proceed because DAP supporters have lately become big headed. Do not poke at the hornet’s nest lest you regret it forever,” he was quoted as saying.
Early this week, Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia has picked on Khir Toyo’s comment and highlighted the issue in one of its opinion column.
With another ‘wolf-boy’ in kutusan maresia to “berkomplot” with that toyol in their bid to ‘stir the hornets nest’, their effort seems quite successful when at last, the Special branch of our men-in-blue came and hauled our Sister Teresa to ‘minum kopi’ in Bukit Aman on the charge of creating religious tension! How ridiculous?
It was a sad and tragic case where our men-in-blue has to always kowtow to the unreasonable & ridiculous whines of our mother gaverment. The correct one they ignore but the false one they listen. As if the men-in-blue was unable to think straight, they went around arresting innocent Malaysian citizens in a dragnet yesterday night.
When asked to comment on the arrest of Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng under th ISA, our HM Said Honey defended the police action by stating that it was part of the government’s preventive measure “to ensure her safety”.
Malaysiakini reports that the minister claimed police intelligence have indicated that the journalist’s life was under threat after she reported an Umno division leader’s allegedly racist remarks. (What are you trying to say? that umno is made up of thugs and gangsters that will resort to violence??)
“We have no intention of holding a reporter as after all she was just taking notes of the comments made by a certain party (why dun you go straight to the point by admitting that the party is non other than umno lor…) that led to a public debate.
“She may be released as soon as today after police have obtained all information needed.” What a plain bullsh*t!
In the latest report of Malaysiakini, Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar has implied that Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng was also to be blamed for the public furore over the ‘Chinese squatter’ remark. See how umno people begin another round of the blame game?
“The whole thing was started by her, (so) it was best that we talked to her,” Syed Hamid said in reply to a question during a press conference at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman today. What you mean by ‘STARTED by HER???’ WTF… The entire fiasco was started by our Man of the Week Ahmed Ismael and yet our HM could, out of nowhere, place the blame on the reporter. I was speechless… I was sooooo ashamed to have such people holding such high post representing my beloved country.
Anyway, it has been confirmed that the poor reporter has been released by the police and now is safe and sound at her home in Bukit Mertajam. But poor Sister Teresa… her whereabouts is still unknown and this has her parents worried very much.
She was caught without knowing the reason why as she was completely innocent in this issue of the mosque. Even though the Masjid Kinrara, the mosque which is embroiled in an azan controversy has came out to clarify that the DAP parliamentarian Teresa Kok was not involved in the petition to lower the volume of its loudspeakers.
According to Abdul Rahman Nasir (left), who is head of the mosque ommittee, Kok had never set foot in Masjid Kinrara to present the residents’ petition. So how on earth our men-in-blue can catch the wrong person realli baffles me very much.
Since all parties has came out to clarify things up, so what are u waiting for? For those Special branch idiots out there, kindly release Teresa Kok as there is no more valid reason to hold her any longer. Stop wasting our taxpayers money to accomodate your own stupid intention. We pay your salary ok? Not bodowi or najiv or honey akbar. The rakyat is your master and therefore, please do not serve 2 masters.
I realli pray that Sister Teresa who has done so much for the people of Selangor will overcome this problem with tougher determination and will. The Wiz will continue to hold the vigil until our damn gobermen will learn to yield to people’s power and recognise their true masters.
As for our toyol, come this Sept 16 bomoh anwar will rise and ‘eliminate’ that annoying ghostling once and for all…
