Blog @ RTM1

I have just finished watching Blog at RTM1. It is aired every Sunday at 8.40pm for 2o minutes. I have watched the programme twice (including tonite). Basically the programme focusses on issues surrounding the blogging world with the main focus is on the type of issues normally discussed in the respective blogs.
.
The first time I watched Blog was when RTM1 called the blogger by the name of Ahiruddin Atan @ Rockybru. I have been following his blog ever since I started blogging to get the latest news on mostly political issues, which is sometimes not highlighted in the newspaper. Almost everyday, I make it a habit to visit his popular blog at http://www.rockybru.com. That was a couple of months ago since Rocky apeared in the programme.
.
As for tonite, the guest blogger appeared in the programme was my university friend i.e. Budiey or his real name Baharuddin Che Wil. So, it goes without saying as to why I watched the programme tonite. Budiey or also known by his long commercial name as Budiey Isma Alifi is a full time blogger who blog about local entertainment and local artists. So, the issues discussed during the programme was on local entertainment. You can visit his blog at http://www.budiey.com.
.
Frankly speaking, I do not follow the programme at all. I watched it twice not because of the programme but because of the guest bloggers that appeared in the programme. So, I do not know for sure what is the main motive RTM1 is having this programme. But whatever it is, I wonder if RTM1 will call the most popular blogger in Malaysia that is none others than the great Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad who is blogging at www.chedet.com. It is interesting to watch Tun throwing out his idea again in TV.

Aqiqah

Berikut adalah soal jawab agama yang saya petik secara keseluruhan daripada Utusan Malaysia online bertarikh 30 November 2008 di http://www.utusan.com.my/utusan/info.asp?y=2008&dt=1128&pub=Utusan_Malaysia&sec=Bicara_Agama&pg=ba_03.htm. Ini juga sedikit sebanyak sesuai untuk dijadikan bahan bacaan lanjutan dari posting saya yang sebelum ini bertajuk "cukur Jambul". Klik di sini http://rozaimims.blogspot.com/2008/11/cukur-jambul.html.
.
SOALAN: . Baru-baru ini saya mengadakan majlis akikah untuk anak lelaki saya yang baru saja dilahirkan. Mengikut hukum anak lelaki harus korbankan dua ekor kambing, jadi saya telah pun menunaikannya.
.
Ketika majlis ini berlangsung ada juga tetamu bangsa Cina yang hadir.
. Adakah sah akikah saya yang dimakan oleh tetamu bangsa Cina itu? .
.
JAWAPAN:
. Tiada tegahan dalam mana-mana nas secara qatie (muktamad) sama ada di dalam al-Quran mahupun hadis-hadis Rasulullah SAW yang sahih yang boleh difahami bahawa orang bukan Islam tidak boleh memakan daging akikah. .
.
Selagi mana tiada nas yang secara sorih (terang) yang menegah maka selagi itulah perkara itu dilihat suatu yang tidak mutlak dari hukumnya. Apa yang perlu difahami di sini ialah hukum melaksanakan akikah itu sendiri.
.
.
Di samping itu daging akikah yang dimasak dengan sedikit rasa manis itu diharapkan agar perangai dan budi pekerti anak tersebut akan menjadi elok dan baik. (Al-Majmu’: 8/322). .
.
Pengertian akikah menurut syarak .
.
Akikah dalam pengertian syarak ialah binatang ternakan yang berkaki empat (binatang an’am) yang disembelih ketika hendak mencukur rambut kepala anak yang baru dilahirkan, sama ada disembelih pada hari ketujuh atau selepasnya.
.
.
Falsafah tuntutan menunaikan akikah adalah sebagai tanda kesyukuran seseorang setelah mendapat anugerah cahaya mata yang dikurniakan oleh Allah SWT. .
.
Justeru ia lebih baik di kongsi sesama Islam. Ini kerana ia juga seumpama satu peringatan kepada yang lain untuk berakikah juga untuk anak mereka (jika belum). Bagi bukan Islam, tiada peruntukan akikah. .
.
Hukum melakukan akikah itu adalah sunat muakkad, iaitu sunat yang sangat digalakkan dalam syarak. Perkara ini bukan sekadar nas semata-mata malahan boleh dilihat sebagaimana perbuatan Rasulullah SAW ketika baginda mengakikahkan cucundanya Hasan dan Husain r.a.
.
.
Ia bukanlah perkara yang wajib dilakukan kerana hal ini pernah ditanyakan kepada Rasulullah, lalu baginda bersabda yang maksudnya: “Allah tidak menyukai kedurhakaan, seolah-olah Baginda tidak suka menyebut nama itu (akikah). Baginda bersabda: “Barang siapa yang dikurniakan baginya anak, lalu dia ingin menyembelihkan untuk a
naknya maka sembelihlah untuk anak lelaki dua ekor kambing yang sama keadaannya dan bagi anak perempuan seekor kambing”. (riwayat Abu Daud).
.
Maksud hadis daripada perkataan (suka atau ingin menyembelihkan untuk anaknya) itu menunjukkan tidak wajib melakukan akikah, melainkan jika akikah itu dinazarkan baharulah ia dipanggil akikah wajib. .
.
Dalam hadis yang lain, sabda Rasulullah SAW: “Anak-anak tergadai (terikat) dengan akikahnya, disembelih (akikah) untuknya pada hari ketujuh (kelahirannya) dan diberi namanya serta dicukur rambutnya”. (riwayat at-Tirmidzi) .
.
Terdapat dua pendapat dalam menghuraikan maksud hadis “anak tergadai dengan akikahnya” di sini. .
.
Pendapat pertama mengatakan bahawa jika tidak diakikahkan, anak itu akan terbantut atau terhalang pertumbuhannya, tidak seperti anak-anak lain yang diakikahkan.
.
.
Pendapat kedua .
.
Pendapat kedua mengatakan bahawa maksudnya ialah anak itu tidak akan memberi syafaat kepada kedua ibu bapanya pada hari kiamat kelak jika dia tidak diakikahkan. Pendapat kedua ini adalah pendapat Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal, dan pendapat ini dilihat pendapat yang lebih utama. (Mughni al-Muhtaj: 4/369)
.
.
Akikah disebut dalam hadis yang bermaksud: Bersama bayi yang lahir itu akikah, maka kerana itu mengalirkanlah darah (sembelihan) untuknya, dan jauhkan baginya segala kesakitan (godaan syaitan). (riwayat Bukhari). .
.
Ini bermakna: “Setiap anak perlu dipajakkan (terhutang) dengan akikah, disembelih untuknya pada hari ketujuh umurnya, dan diberi nama dan dicukur rambut kepalanya”. (riwayat Ashabus Sunan)
.
.
Akikah itu pula dari sudut bahasanya adalah tolakan iaitu tolakan dari gangguan dan godaan syaitan. .
.
Adapun persoalan mengenai memberi makan atau dimakan daging akikah oleh bukan Islam tidak mencacatkan amalan akikah. Biarpun daging akikah itu dimakan oleh bukan Islam, akikah itu tetap sah dan tidak perlu diulangi.
.
.
Sebenarnya perbuatan kita melabelkan hidangan dengan ayat hidangan untuk orang Islam sahaja adalah tidak wajar. Seolah-olah kita memperkecilkan tetamu yang datang ke majlis keraian kita dengan tidak mengizin mereka menjamah apa yang dihidangkan oleh tuan rumah. Sedangkan bukan Islam muslim boleh memakan daging akikah.
.
.
Setiap ibu bapa atau ahli keluarga apabila mengadakan majlis tersebut mereka mengharapkan doa yang ikhlas daripada sanak saudara dan sahabat andai atau jiran tetangga yang datang bertandang ke majlis itu. .
.
Jika yang diundang itu bukan Islam sekurang-kurang kita dapat menghampiri mereka dan memahamkan bahawa Islam tidak menghalang pergaulan dan penglibatan bukan Islam dalam majlis yang diadakan oleh orang Islam.
.
.
Ini sekurang-kurangnya memberi peluang kepada kenalan kita yang bukan Islam mengenal amalan yang terkandung dalam agama yang suci ini.

.
Catatan: Bahagian yang diterangkan (bold) adalah oleh saya.

Fatwa on Yoga

The latest fatwa issued by Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan on the banning of yoga among Muslims had attracted mixed reaction with majority of it condemning and criticizing the fatwa. I have read postings in various blogs and the comments therein. It is scary in deed to get to know how people think about Islam nowadays. The fatwa issued by Majlis Fatwa can be debated openly and criticized by even those who are not well verse in the subject matter. More so, the Indian community was so upset with the fatwa. Nowadays, people are very sensitive but they are being sensitive unnecessarily or should I say over sensitive. The fatwa only concerns the Muslims and the banning is only for Muslims, nothing to do with the Hindus or those who profess other religions. It is still ok for the non-Muslims to do yoga. Islam does not prohibit them from doing so. So, I do not understand why the Hindus were upset with the fatwa to the extent that Samy Vellu wanted to meet the PM (this one must be politically motivated) and that Hindu Sangam said that the Majlis Fatwa should consult them before issuing the fatwa. http://www.hindusangam.org.my/news/index.php?id=105. Who are they at the first place to talk about the do’s and the don’t’s in Islam? To certain extent, the non-Muslims should refrain themselves from getting involve with any fatwa issued by Muslim scholars unless they become a Muslim. Otherwise, it is insensitive of Islam to make it haram for the Muslims to eat pork and to slaughter cows especially during Hari Raya Haji/Qurban. The fatwa here is not about not respecting other religion but about the do's and the don'ts in Islam.
.
Not only the non-Muslims criticizing the fatwa, there are also some quarters of liberal thinking Muslims condemning the fatwa. It is a major problem when we fail to look everything and anything from Islamic point of view. If we were to look at everything with liberal mind set, don’t be surprise if one day the Islamic teaching will become “irrelevant” and “obsolete” to the people. That is why there are Muslims who are, not only that they do not appreciate the fatwa issued, they even condemn the said fatwa and in doing so, they did it worst that the non-Muslims did.
.
In Islam, there are things that we can’t think of its rationale but we are obliged to follow. That is why Allah said in the Qur’an, “la tas’alu ‘an ash yaa’I in tubdalakum tasu’kum” which means “do not question something that if explained to you will add to your confusion (lead to many other questions)”. For example, why do Muslims have to fast during Ramadhan and not on other months? That alone is difficult for us to understand the rationale behind it and yet we have to do it because it is a divine revelation. So, in this yoga issue, while I am not saying that it is not something that we can’t debate, the issue has been deliberated by Muslims Scholars in the country. If at all we want to debate, we need to have in depth knowledge as to why we need a fatwa, how does fatwa arrived at, things and factors that need to be considered in issuing a fatwa. If we do not understand all these, it is not for us to debate. We may ask questions for clarification but not to debate it. Giving an example here, fatwa is issued only on issues that have no clear ruling in the Qur’an and Sunnah. But there are liberal thinking Muslims, in condemning the fatwa on yoga, said the Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan should issue fatwa on issues that are more important such as corruption. That alone shows their lack of understanding or ignorance about Islamic teaching as corruption is obviously prohibited (haram) in Islam. As the Prophet pbuh said, “ar raasyi wal murtasyi finnar” which means “the person who give bribe and the person who receive it, both will be in the hell”. As such, you don’t need fatwa on that!!!
.
There are also a lot of Muslims who asked this question i.e. is our faith is too fragile that can be easily swayed by just doing yoga? My answer is simple. It may not directly swayed our faith and aqidah but slowly and indirectly it may. At first we just do yoga for the purpose of exercise. Yes, nothing wrong. But later when we feel that yoga can do this and can do that for us and started to believe in yoga, that may erode our faith and aqidah because in Islam it is Allah who determine the good and the bad for us. It is not yoga or any other things. And when we started to believe in yoga, we may tend to learn further about yoga and in doing so, we may end up doing the mantra and without us realizing it, we may have be “one with god (their god and not our God [Allah])”. So, why do not we prevent it from happen? After all, prevention is better than cure.

Another point is that why do we bother to compare our fatwa with that of other countries’? Does it mean that since other countries do not issue any fatwa banning yoga, we are prevented from doing so? It must be understood that in Islam, differences of opinion is allowed. So, it is ok for the Muslims scholars in Malaysia to think that yoga is haram in Malaysia though the scholars in other countries disagree with such opinion. The fact that other countries do not make such a ruling, it does not negate the effect of the fatwa issued in Malaysia. In Islam, we have four schools of thoughts i.e. Hambali, Maliki, Shafi’e and Hanafi. In Malaysia, we follow Shafi’e and does it mean that those who follow other school of thoughts are not Muslim? The answer is obviously “NO”. The Prophet pbuh said in his hadith, “khilaafu ummati rahmah” which means “the differences of opinion among my followers is a blessing”.

Cukur Jambul

Selepas kelahiran bayi, kebanyakan masyarakat Melayu di Malaysia akan mengadakan satu majlis yang dipanggil “cukur jambul”. Majlis “cukur jambul” ini kebiasaannya dimulakan dengan majlis berzanji/marhaban oleh kaum lelaki sebelum diikuti dengan majlis tahlil dan doa selamat. Semasa majlis berzanji/marhaban dijalankan, bayi tersebut kebiasaannya akan dibawa mengelilingi kaum lelaki yang sedang berzanji/bermarhaban tadi sambil rambutnya (bayi) dipotong sedikit demi sedikit sebagai simbolik “bercukur jambul”. Namun ada juga jemaah yang tidak memotong rambut bayi tersebut tetapi sekadar mengusap kepala bayi tersebut seolah-olah memberi restu kehadirannya di muka bumi ini. Walaupun “cukur jambul” menjadi amalan masyarakat Melayu di Malaysia, dimanakah pula kedudukannya (amalan cukur jambul) di dalam ajaran Islam? Adakah “cukur jambul” ini merupakan tuntutan agama ataupun ia hanyalah adat semata-mata?
.
Menjadi amalan Nabi Muhammad (saw) memberikan nama kepada cucu-cucu baginda dan membotakkan kepala mereka pada hari ke-7 kelahiran. Terdapat juga hadis-hadis yang mengesahkan amalan Rasullullah tersebut. Oleh yang demikian, hukum bagi membotakkan kepala bayi dan memberikan bayi tersebut nama pada hari ke-7 adalah sunat kerana ia selari dengan sunnah Rasulullah (saw). Selain daripada itu, ibubapa juga diwajibkan mengadakan aqiqah sebagai tanda kesyukuran kita kepada Allah di atas kurniaan bayi yang baru lahir. Aqiqah diadakan dengan menyembelih binatang peliharaan seperti lembu, kerbau dan kambing. Walaubagaimanapun, binatang peliharaan seperti ayam, itik dan burung tidak boleh dijadikan sembelihan bagi tujuan aqiqah.
.
Maka amat jelas bahawa amalan “cukur jambul” yang dilakukan oleh kebanyakan masyarakat Melayu di negara ini bukan merupakan satu ajaran Islam dan tidak pernah diamalkan oleh Rasulullah. Apatah lagi memberi restu kepada bayi tersebut kerana bayi tersebut dicipta oleh Allah untuk hidup di muka bumi ini. Jadi siapakah kita untuk memberi restu atas apa yang diciptakan oleh Allah? Walaupun saya amat tidak bersetuju dengan “pemberian restu”, saya berpendapat bahawa amalan “cukur jambul” ini diadaptasikan dari amalan Rasulullah (saw) yang membotakkan kepala cucu-cucu Baginda pada hari ke-7 kelahiran.
.
Walaubagaimanapun, terdapat segelintir masyarakat Melayu yang kurang faham atau tidak faham dengan apa yang dimaksudkan dengan “cukur jambul”. Bagi mereka ini, “cukur jambul” memadai dengan mengadakan majlis berzanji/marhaban sambil “jambul” bayi tersebut dipotong sedikit sahaja tanpa membotakkan kepala bayi tersebut. Mereka juga berfahaman bahawa majlis “cukur jambul” “wajib” diadakan bagi menyambut kelahiran bayi.
.
Melalui pengalaman saya sendiri, saya pernah dijemput oleh seorang rakan untuk menghadiri majlis “cukur jambul” anak beliau yang baru dilahirkan. Walaubagaimanapun, atas sebab-sebab yang tak dapat dielakkan, saya terpaksa menolak jemputan tersebut tetapi saya berjanji akan pergi melawat anak beliau yang baru dilahirkan. Jadi, seminggu selepas majlis “cukur jambul” tersebut, saya telah pergi melawat bayi tersebut dan saya mendapati bahawa rambutnya masih lebat. Apabila saya mengajukan soalan kepada rakan saya tentang mengapa rambut bayi beliau masih lebat sedangkan “cukur jambul” telah diadakan seminggu yang lalu, beliau mengatakan kepada saya yang beliau rasa “sayang” untuk membotakkan kepala bayi beliau itu.
.
Bagi saya inilah akibatnya jika kita membuat sesuatu dengan hanya mengikut orang lain tanpa mengetahui tujuan asal apa yang hendak kita lakukan itu.
.
Jadi apakah pula hukumnya “cukur jambul” ini? Jika kita mengadakan majlis “cukur jambul” dan seterusnya membotakkan kepala bayi tersebut sambil menjamu selera para tetamu yang hadir, bukan sahaja kita mendapat pahala sunat membotakkan kepala bayi, malahan kita juga mendapat pahala menjamu para tetamu. Namun, sekiranya kita benar-benar sekadar “cukur jambul” dan tidak membotakkan kepala bayi kita, maka apa yang kita lakukan tidak selari dengan sunnah Rasulullah (saw) dan seterusnya kita tidak mendapat apa-apa ganjaran daripada Allah (swt) kecuali pahala menjamu makan para tetamu.
.
Jadi nasihat saya kepada semua para pembaca agar istilah “cukur jambul” ini tidak lagi digunakan kerana ia telah menyebabkan kekeliruan dikalangan masyarakat Melayu di Malaysia sehingga ada yang mengadakan majlis “cukur jambul” tetapi tidak membotakkan kepala bayi tersebut. Malahan ada yang lebih teruk lagi apabila mereka tidak mengadakan aqiqah iaitu satu tuntutan dalam Islam. Maka akhirnya, kita hanya melakukan tuntutan adat tetapi meninggalkan tuntutan agama. Walaupun mengadakan "cukur jambul" sekadar membawa maksud kita tidak mendapat sebarang ganjaran, apa yang saya khuatirkan sebenarnya ialah pemahaman masyarakat Melayu pada masa akan datang di antara tuntutan adat dan tuntutan agama. Tidak menjadi sebarang masalah untuk mengadatkan tuntutan agama tetapi akan menjadi masalah besar jika kita mengagamakan tuntutan adat.
.
Beberapa hari lepas, saya mendapat jemputan dari jiran saya melalui sms yang berbunyi seperti ini, “Salam Hormat…Dijemput hadir ke majlis kesyukuran & cukur jambul puteri saya pada 15 Nov 2008 pukul 1.00tgh…”. InsyaAllah, saya akan menghadiri majlis tersebut petang ini. Cuma saya terfikir apakah majlis ini sekadar “cukur jambul” atau benar-benar melakukan amalan Rasulullah membotakkan kepala bayi? Atau apakah perlu saya memberikan “restu” saya ke atas ciptaan Allah (swt) semata-mata bagi menjaga hati jiran saya itu?

Home Minister Acted Beyond His Jurisdiction in Issuing Detention Order

The High Court has freed Raja Petra or better know as RPK from ISA detention. In making the ruling, the Judge has said that the Home Minister i.e. Hamid Albar (emphasise is mine) had acted outside his jurisdiction when he issued the two-year detention order under Section 8(1) of the ISA.
.
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/11/7/nation/20081107094618&sec=nation
.
Based on the news report, the basis for the Judge’s ruling really attracted my attention simply because he said the Home Minister acted beyond his jurisdiction. Come to think about it again, why did the Judge made such reasoning when Section 8 (1) of the ISA clearly gives power to the Minister to detain a person for a period of maximum two (2) years? So, based on the provision of Section 8 (1), Hamid Albar, in issuing the detention order should have been said to have had acted within his jurisdiction. The only thing that I can think of as to what does the Judge meant in his reasoning is the second part of Section 8 (1) which says that the detention order may only be made if the Home Minister is satisfied that the person may be prejudicial to the security of Malaysia or to the maintenance of essential services or to the economic life thereof.
.
I 100% agree with the Judge, not because I admire RPK, but because to me RPK is not a threat to the nation but perhaps he is a threat to certain individual (it goes without saying who the individual is). As such, the Judge is correct in saying that Hamid Albar acted beyond his jurisdiction because he cannot detain a person under the ISA if such person is just a threat to an individual, no matter how powerful that individual is.
.
Now, in doing so, don’t you think that Hamid Albar had abused his power conferred under the ISA? I believe he did. So, in such a situation, what remedy does RPK or any detainees of rthat matter (which was wrongfully detained under the ISA) have for the time they spent in the detention centre? I would say none unless they take the trouble to sue the Home Minister and the government of Malaysia, which to me, will not help them in any way because of time consuming. But can the authority take action against the Home Minister for abusing his power under the ISA? As far as I know, there is no provision for that. So, the Home Minister and the government can still make wrongful detention order in the future and let the court decides if the order is being challenged. Legally, it may be a right process but to me it is a broad daylight abuse of process of law and power.
.
I have posted an article on ISA. Click here http://rozaimims.blogspot.com/2008/09/internal-security-act.html

RM10.5 Million Paid to 5 Former Judges

As reported in the Malaysian Bar website today: -
.
The government had paid out RM10.5 million in ex-gratia payment to the five former judges who were tribunalised for alleged judicial misconduct. Former Lord Presiident Tun Salleh Abas alone received RM5 million, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz told the Dewan Rakyat.
.
Read here
.
I am not here disputing the fact that payment had been made to the judges, if at all the government thought that was the best thing to do. But I was puzzled when there was such an understanding between the government and the judges/their families not to disclose the amount paid to the public. They must remember that whatever payment that were made was using the public's fund, i.e. your money and my money and why on earth we should not know the figure?
.
And now it has been made public that the 5 former judges were paid in total of RM10.5 million with Tun Salleh Abas alone received RM5 million, which means the other 4 judges received a total of RM5.5 million. It is not sufficed for the government to just telling us the final figure. We have every right to know how did the government arrived at that figure? Bearing in mind that those judges were all paid their pension by the government.
.
I am hoping that the government will come clear on this or at least for some MPs, opposition or the ruling party to urge the government to disclose the formula.

Guess...

What is an act which is a crime and punishable if attempted but not a crime and not punishable if committed? I am not talking about the Islamic law here.

Is Money Everything?

Most of us say that money is not everything. In other words, there are things that money can't buy especially when we talk about happiness. But sad to say, there are people who thought that money is everything. Money can buy happiness and money can solve problem.
.
More often than not, we see the life of the rich people are not as good and as happy as we thought it should be. Why not? They have money. They can do whatever they want because they have money. But they do get divorce. They do have family problems. They do have social problems. They do have all sorts of problems. And all that happen while they have money. So, money, while it is essential to have it in our daily life, wrong way of using it may cause disaster. So, there are things that money can't buy such as happiness and problem solving.
.
As such, I am puzzled when the Melaka government announced a new incentive of RM1,000 to be given to men who take a poor single mother as their second wife provided that they do not divorce their first wife. And not only that, the same amount will also be given to those who get married before they reach the age of 30. The reason behind this? According to Ali Rustam, it is an effort to curb social ills such as illicit sex and Mat Rempit.
.
Read here
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/11/1/nation/2429033&sec=nation
.
To me, whatever the reason is, it does not and will not solve the problem. In fact, it will create more problems such as people get married for the sake of money and once the get the money, they will get divorce. It is like an income. Further, it will cause the young generation to hve the wrong understanding on the reason behind marriage. Once they get married for the wrong reason, there will be more divorces, thus causing injustice to the parties involved especially the female and it will also lead to more social problems. People should get married when they are ready to bear the responsibility and not because they want the incentive. Ali Rustam may think what I write is crap but from my own personal experience, there are people who are willing to do anything, I repeat anything to get the money even to the extent of divorcing their wife of more than 20 years of marriage. I had a case whereby a client of mine wanted a divorce because he wanted to bring China doll into the country. According to him, he could only do so if he is single. And of course, he was paid for it. I can't remember the figure but I can assure you, it was a handsome figure. And to my surprise, his wife agreed. In fact he brought his wife and daughter to my office to sign the divorce paper. That was a proof that people are willing to do anything for the sake of money, even to get married before the age of 30 or marry to a poor single mother.
.
People should get married in the most sincere manner and not for monetary purposes. As such, I do really hope for Ali Rustam to have a better faculty of understanding in proposing any policy for the state. He should use his sense and brain and not be blinded by money. I thought awarding a Datukship to Shah Rukh Khan was the worst that Ali Rustam could do but I am wrong. But I do hope that Ali Rustam to stop from making stupid proposal at this juncture.
