A DAY OF TERROR : SEPT 11 2001


IMAGE SEQUENCE OF UNITED FLIGHTS 175 IMPACTING TWO WORLD TRADE
CENTRE

The September 11 attacks (often referred to as 9/11) were a series of coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda upon the United States on September 11, 2001. On that morning, terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the building, causing both buildings to collapse within two hours, destroying at least two nearby buildings and damaging others.

The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanks ville in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania, after passengers and members of the flight crew on the fourth aircraft attempted to retake control of their plane, which was heading for Washington, D.C. There are no known survivors from any of the flights.

Excluding the 19 hijackers, 2,974 people died in the attacks. Another 24 are missing and presumed dead. The overwhelming majority of casualties were civilians, including nationals of over 90 different countries. In addition, the death of at least one person from lung disease was ruled by a medical examiner to be a result of exposure to dust from the World Trade Center's collapse, as rescue and recovery workers were exposed to airborne contaminants following the buildings' collapse.

The United States responded to the attacks by declaring a War on Terrorism, launching an invasion of Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, who had harbored al-Qaeda terrorists, and enacting the USA PATRIOT Act. Many other nations also strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded law enforcement powers. Stock exchanges closed for almost a week, and posted enormous losses upon reopening, especially in the airline and insurance industries. The economy of Lower Manhattan ground to a halt, as billions of dollars in office space was damaged or destroyed.

The damage to the Pentagon was cleared and repaired within a year, and a small memorial was built on the site. Rebuilding the World Trade Center site has proven more difficult, with controversy over possible designs as well as the pace of construction. The selection of the Freedom Tower for the site has drawn extensive criticism, forcing the abandonment of some parts of the project.

Malaysians proud of Adelina Raisa Sufian

ADELINA (LEFT) POSING WITH HER FRIENDS AFTER SHE WON THE WESTLIFE TRUST PRIZE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LONDON RECENTLY

A 21-year-old has done Malaysia proud when she was adjudged top student in English at the University of London’s Queen Mary College recently. Adelina Raisa Sufian, who obtained a Bachelor of Arts (English) degree with first class honours, won the coveted 2009 Westfield Trust Prize for outstanding academic achievement in English at the university last month.

Commenting on her achievement, Adelina attributed her success to encouragement from her parents, businessman Datuk Sufian Majid and Datin Alissa Fitri. Adelina, who is also an accomplished pianist, has represented Queen Mary College in choir and mathematics competitions. While pursuing higher education at the Ockham School, Britain, in 2004, she won the Headmaster’s Prize and was adjudged top student in Mathematics, English and Chemistry.

“I set a target throughout my study,” she said. “Most importantly, we must have the determination and confidence to succeed. “I am glad that I was able to compete with native speakers of English, as well as students from other countries,” Adelina added.

On her future, Adelina said she planned to write, pursue a Master’s degree and work in Malaysia. “I love my country,” she added. This young girl made our nation proud and determines to contribute to Malaysia after finish her study. This is one of the best examples to show our patriotism. Hope other students that studying in international universities emulate Adelina’s step in contributing to Malaysia after complete their studies.

Perkara 11 Perlembagaan Persekutuan- Kebebasan Beragama


Perkara 11. Kebebasan beragama.
(1) Tiap-tiap orang berhak menganuti dan mengamalkan agamanya dan, tertakluk kepada Fasal (4), mengembangkannya.

(2) Tiada seorang pun boleh dipaksa membayar apa-apa cukai yang hasilnya diuntukkan khas kesemuanyaatau sebahagiannya bagi maksud sesuatu agama selain agamanya sendiri.

(3) Tiap-tiap kumpulan agama berhak—
  • menguruskan hal ehwal agamanya sendiri;
  • menubuhkan dan menyenggarakan institusi-institusi bagi maksud agama atau khairat; dan
  • memperoleh dan mempunyai harta dan memegang dan mentadbirkannya mengikut undangundang.
(4) Undang-undang Negeri dan berkenaan dengan Wilayah-Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Labuan dan Putrajaya, undang-undang persekutuan boleh mengawal atau menyekat pengembangan apa-apa doktrin atau kepercayaan agama di kalangan orang yang menganuti agama Islam.

(5) Perkara ini tidaklah membenarkan apa-apa perbuatan yang berlawanan dengan mana-mana undang undangan yang berhubungan dengan ketenteraman awam, kesihatan awam atau prinsip moral.
Jelaslah bahawa kebebasan agama tercatat dalam perlembagaan persekutuan, tidak ada sekatan atau sebarang halangan untuk melaksanakan sebarang jenis upacara keagamaan di Malaysia. Malah pembinaan kuil atau tempat beribadat adalah dibenarkan. Jadi rakyat Malaysia yang berbilang agama terlindung di bawah perlembagaan yang mulia ini. Diharapkan setiap rakyat memahami perlembagaan ini demi kesehjateraan negara.

Dosa demi dosa dilakukan oleh segelintir pihak untuk melukakan hati penganut Hindu di Malaysia

Adakah penganut Hindu tidak berhak untuk mempunyai kuil untuk melakukan upacara keagamaan? Mengapakah ada pihak menghina lembu iaitu haiwan suci agama Hindu? Dan setelah kamu mengetahui perkara yang kamu buat adalah sensitif dan kamu tidak meminta maaf atas apa yang telah berlaku. Sukarkah untuk meminta maaf? Ataupun kamu akan teruskan perbuatan menghina selepas ini? Adakah minoriti tidak berhak mempunyai hak seperti yang umat Islam inginkan di negara seperti Palestin, Iraq dan Afghanistan?

Sedarlah saudara, apa-apa dosa yang kamu lakukan setelah mengetahui kesahihannya tidak akan tuhan maafkan walaupun sedikit! Berfikirlah sewaras-warasnya sebelum mengeluarkan kenyataan atau pendapat, ada kalanya kita tidak menghargai keunikan yang terdapat di negara kita. Apa yang berlaku di beberapa negara yang hampir 100% adalah umat Islam? Negara seperti Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, malah Palestin sendiri tidak tenteram dengan perang saudara yang melanda berdekad lamanya. Janganlah kita salahkan pihak barat (Amerika dan sekutunya), jika kita sendiri tidak pandai untuk mengawal dan membetulkan negara kita.

Bersyukurlah kepada tuhan dengan apa yang kit ada hari ini. Saling hormat-menghormatilah antara satu sama lain, tidak ada ruginya jika kita bertolak ansur dan hormat-menghormati walaupun daripada berlainan agama dan kaum. Sikap ego yang ditanam hanya membinasakan keamanan yang telah sekian lama kita bina di negara kita. Marilah kita duduk semeja berbincang masalah yang timbul, jangan kita maki atau kutuk antara satu sama lain, itu bukannya jalan penyelesaian.

Tiada agama di dunia mengajar kejahatan kepada manusia, sesungguhnya yang baik hanya daripada tuhan/agama dan yang jahat/buruk adalah daripada kita sendiri. Jadi hanya manusia yang kurang pegangan agama sering melakukan dosa demi dosa. Sedarlah bahawa tuhan menjadikan kita pelbagai agama, kaum, etnik, warna kulit adalah untuk mengenali antara satu sama lain dan bukanya 'berperang' antara satu sama lain!

Minta maaf jika saya menyinggung perasaan mana-mana pihak. Tapi saya mahu melihat Malaysia menjadi satu negara contoh perpaduan dunia yang disegani. Keamanan dan ketenteraman menjadi tunjang utama kepada penentukan negara bangsa. Harapan saya adalah rakyat pelbagai agama dan kaum di negara ini saling hormat-menghormati antara satu sama lain dan lebih memikirkan soal-soal lain contohnya ekonomi, sukan, dan sebagainya untuk membina satu negara bangsa yang unggul! Ini bukannya harapan saya seorang, malah harapan kebanyakkan rakyat Malaysia yang cintakan keamanan dan kesejahteraan.

Uthaya is just another hypocrite!


After few months promising that he will not organise any street protest. Read here- Hindraf's Uthayakumar: No more street protests- Yesterday night he organised another protest to show his dissatisfaction. In fact, race based street protest will only increase the racial tensions in our nation. I know that the candlelight vigil was a cheap publicity for his new race based party, Human Rights Party (HRP).

Mr Uthaya, where is your ‘landmark plan’ that you said you have been created in your detention in ISA? Is it another lips service like MIC? Why you people never change? Please don’t cheat the Malaysian Indian anymore. You race based party is not relevant for multiracial Malaysia and definitely your cheap publicities never work!
