It Is An Open Season For Politicians

1_Tiger

Open season is a specific period of time when it is permissible to hunt for wild animals which otherwise are protected by the law.

Why would certain species of wild animals be protected by the law in some countries? Some are rare, endangered, threatened or close to extinction.

In Malaysia, there is a species of wild animals which will soon be facing an open season. ( But are you man enough for the hunt? )

The reason being the 14th General Elections are coming soon for the ‘political animals’ aka political candidates.

At other times, they enjoy natural immunity and are protected by the laws of sedition.

It will be an unprecedented no-holds-barred.

It will be a brutal bloodbath and a ruthless showdown.

All kinds of character assassination will be expected.

1_Weaponized Info

By all definitions, it will be an Information Warfare.

This means that any type of information can be weaponized against the enemy.

It will be an intense battle for your hearts and your minds.

Simply because there is just too much at stake for all stakeholders.

Some may actually land behind prison bars.

The Malay Rulers’ Character And Image.

4v_The Malay Ruler's Character And Image

The Melaka Malay Sultanate practices a policy of fairness,

Towards its diverse people; regardless of different religion, race, culture and language.

This is a reflection of the Malay Ruler’s character and image.

For as long as the Malay Ruler, customs and laws of Melaka are respected.

#Kesultanan Melayu Melaka … Amalan kesaksamaan terhadap rakyat pelbagai agama, pelbagai kaum, pelbagai budaya, pelbagai bahasa, adalah sebahagian daripada sifat dan citra Raja Melayu … asalkan Raja, adat resam dan undang-undang Melaka dihormati.

The Wisdom Of The Malay Rulers

4u_The Wisdom Of The Malay Rulers

Since the start of civilization, as a tradition, the Sultan will be presented with reports concerning the state and the people.

The Monarchy have always practiced a system of consultation for counsel and perspectives.

Based on the historical account and genealogy of Malay Sultans in “Sulalat al-Salatin”,

The practice of consultation is prioritised and its vital importance is reemphasised to the next heir of the throne.

This is as symbolized in the will and final message of Sultan Alauddin Shah to his son Sultan Mahmud Shah.

O my son, you know that this world will not continue to exist … except by faith …

This is my bequeath of inheritance to you that you prayerfully consider.

Do not violate the rights of any of your people without a just cause.

Because all the servants of the Almighty is given into the power of your hands.

Furthermore, you should take counsel with all the main ministers, the community leaders and the stakeholders.

No matter how wise is the king or how wide is his knowledge; without consultation and consensus; with all the officials.

There will not be peace and harmony; and the king will not be able to perform the rule of his kingdom with wisdom.

Just as this metaphor illustrates; as the citizens of the kingdom are like the roots, and the king is like the tree trunk.

For if there are no roots, surely the tree trunk will not be able to stand.

Now concerning the Malays your subjects, no matter, how great or grievous their transgressions may be,

Do not be hasty to impose the death penalty unless it concerns the commandment of the Almighty.

If you impose the death penalty and later the executed prisoner is found to be innocent,

Then the throne of your kingdom will perish because innocent blood had been  shed.

 

#Secara tradisi, sejak zaman berzaman, Raja setelah disembah maklum hal ehwal urusan negeri dan rakyat, mengamalkan sistem bermusyawarah untuk memperoleh nasihat dan pandangan. Berdasarkan catatan dalam Sulalat al-Salatin, sistem musyawarah amat diutamakan, dijadikan amanat penting kepada pewaris takhta seperti yang dilambangkan dalam wasiat Sultan Alauddin Shah kepada anakanda Baginda Sultan Mahmud Shah:

#”Hai anakku, ketahui olehmu bahawa dunia ini tiada akan kekal adanya…melainkan iman…Adapun peninggalku ini hendaklah anakku berbuat ibadat sangat-sangat, jangan anakku mengambil hak segala manusia dengan tiada sebenarnya, kerana segala hamba ALLAH semuanya terserah kepadamu… Syahadan hendaklah engkau muafakat dengan segala perdana menteri dan segala orang besar-besar, kerana raja-raja itu jikalau bagaimana sekalipun bijaksananya dan tahunya sekalipun, jikalau tiada ia muafakat dengan segala pegawai, tiada akan sentosa adanya, dan tiada akan dapat ia melakukan adilnya; rakyat itu umpama akar, raja itu umpama pohonnya; jikalau tiada akar nescaya tiada akan dapat berdiri. Adapun segala anak Melayu, jikalau bagaimana sekalipun besar dosanya jangan segera kau bunuh, melainkan yang patut pada hukum ALLAH…jikalau kau bunuh ia dengan tiada dosanya, bahawa kerajaan mu binasa.”

The Federal Constitution Is The Nation’s Highest Law

4t_The Federal Constitution Is The Highest Law

The Federal Constitution is the nation’s highest law.

The constitution of a country, ‘sui generis’, is in its own class and is not merely a legal document.

The Federal Constitution in essence contains the spirit and soul of the country.

Reflecting the agreements achieved when the state gained independence.

All prior agreements must be fully respected.

 

# Perlembagaan Persekutuan adalah undang-undang tertinggi negara.

# Perlembagaan sesebuah negara, ‘sui generis’ sifatnya, iaitu berada dalam kelas tersendiri dan tidak sekadar dokumen undang-undang. Perlembagaan Persekutuan pada hakikatnya mengandungi semangat dan roh negara, mencerminkan persetujuan-persetujuan yang dicapai ketika negara memperoleh kemerdekaan.

# Segala persetujuan, wajib dihormati.

All Will Appear Before The Almighty In The Court Of Heaven

4s_All Will Appear Before The Almighty In Heaven's Court

Indeed, the king shoulders a heavy mandate entrusted to him.

The fulfilment of his role is not only judged by the people of this world.

But he will also be judged in Padang Mahsyar in the time to come.

In Rabbuljalil’s Court, in the presence of ALLAH.

At that time, the King will have no defense lawyers.

At that time, the King will have to rely on his obedience and good works which will be his defence.

 

# Nyatalah Raja mendukung amanah berat; peranannya bukan sahaja dinilai oleh warga di dunia ini, tetapi akan turut diadili di Padang Mahsyar nanti. Di Mahkamah Rabbuljalil, berhadapan ALLAH Yang Maha Esa, Raja ketika itu sudah tidak ada Peguam Negara; ketika itu Raja juga bergantung kepada amal makruf yang telah disempurnakan untuk menjadi Peguam Belanya.

Everything that happens, is followed closely by the palace.

The stories are examined and refined, and are balanced with factual news.

The King is also endowed by the Almighty with reasoning,

Blessed with thoughts of the mind,

Equipped with sensitivity, and

Perfected with his heart.

The King shoulders the mandate of ALLAH Subhanahu Wata’ala;

Which is entrusted to him and must be fulfilled as an obligation.

 

# Segala yang berlaku, diikuti oleh istana secara dekat, diteliti dan dihalusi, ditimbangkan cerita – diimbangkan berita. Raja juga dikurniakan ILAHI dengan akal – dengan fikiran, dilengkapkan dengan deria – disempurnakan dengan hati. Raja juga memikul amanah ALLAH Subhanahu Wata’ala yang wajib dipenuhi.
