Sustaining the Malaysian Dream

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 31 — Cousins Khalid Samad and Datuk Zaini Ismail are both the same age as Malaysia and share the same Malaysian dream; but their methods to seeing it come true could not be more different.

“We want a nation that is developing at a sustainable rate and everyone gets a fair share and we all live in peace and harmony,” says Khalid, a PAS politician and MP for Shah Alam whose birthday falls in the Merdeka month.

The RMK10 Forum at Berjaya Times Square

Ramadhan has always been a busy month for me. With over 100 Mosques and Suraus in Shah Alam, my evenings, nights and even dawn prayers are packed with programs. I try to go to all the Mosques and Suraus but it is obviously impossible to do. Nonetheless I do try and I may have some 50% covered by the end of the month.

Asing Adat & Hukum Hakam

Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam, Khalid Samad meminta umat Islam mengasingkan adat dan hukum hakam agama dalam menilai perbuatan seseorang baik sesama Islam mahupun bukan Islam.

By Neville Spykerman (The Malaysian Insider)

SHAH ALAM, Aug 18 — Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad has warned that Perkasa is deliberately trying to whip up religious and racial tension to give Barisan Nasional (BN) an excuse to use the Internal Security Act (ISA) against the opposition.

The Malay rights group has been at the forefront of warning off those who question affirmative action policies for Bumiputeras and recently a Shah Alam church that wanted to hold a Christian play during the Ramadan fasting month. The church had called off the play before Perkasa lodged a report two days ago.

By Yow Hong Chieh (The Malaysian Insider)

Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad said the fact that website filtering was even being considered again showed how desperate the BN government was to stay in power.

“As far as Internet penetration is concerned... it’s hardly 30 per cent. Even with 30 per cent, they’re finding it hard to handle the issues raised on the Internet,” he said.

“I suppose that’s the last option they have if they want to survive the next election.”

Lawatan Kerja ke Kilang Carlsberg

Tajuk posting saya kali ini barangkali akan memeranjatkan sesetengah pihak. Lanjutan daripada perbincangan berhubung Terminal Bas Shah Alam, saya bersama beberapa Ahli Majlis MBSA telah melawat kilang Carlsberg pada hari Khamis 5 Ogos, jam 3 petang. Kami disambut oleh Dato’ Chin Voon Loong, Timbalan Pengarah Urusan Syarikat berkenaan. Beliau memberikan penjelasan dan latar belakang syarikat serta prestasi perniagaannya semenjak ianya mula beroperasi. Untuk makluman semua, kilang Carlsberg Shah Alam telah mula beroperasi pada tahun 1972, iaitu 38 tahun dahulu. Ia merupakan di antara kilang yang terawal di kawasan tersebut dan semasa ianya dibina, hanya hutan dan belukar di kelilingnya.
