Wasiat Akhir Dan Warisan DiRaja

Wasiat Al-Wasiyya

Pernahkah anda dinamakan sebagai waris dalam satu wasiat akhir?

Katakanlah, seseorang yang berkenalan dengan anda telah meninggal dunia; samada keluarga atau rakan.

Al-Wasi (pentadbir) harta pusaka mendiang telah memberitahu bahawa anda telah dinamakan sebagai waris dalam wasiat akhir mendiang Al-musi (pewaris).

Ini bermakna anda adalah bakal menerima satu warisan hartanah, harta benda, saham, wang tunai dan sebagainya.

Perkara Undang-undang Penting *

1. Al-Musi (pewaris) adalah penulis wasiat akhir. Dia melantik Al-Wasi (pentadbir) dan menamakan waris yang layak menerima peninggalan.

2. Waris tidak boleh diubah. Anda sebagai waris mempunyai hak sahih untuk menerima (atau menolak) segalanya yang dinyatakan di dalam wasiat akhir.

3. Kandungan dalam wasiat akhir tidak boleh diubah. Al-Wasi (pentadbir) harta pusaka tidak mempunyai kuasa untuk menukar wasiat akhir; supaya menjadikannya lebih ‘sempurna’.

4. Al-Wasi (pentadbir) diberi kuasa mengedarkan harta pusaka itu hanya mengikut panduan terkandung dan mematuhi hasrat yang diwasiatkan oleh Al-Musi (pewaris).

5. Al-Wasi (pentadbir) tidak boleh diubah kecuali kalau mahkamah diyakini ketidakcekapan Al-Wasi (pentadbir) tersebut. Maka, satu perintah mahkamah diwajibkan.

Ini Kisah Kami *

Raja-Raja Melayu telah memerintah Tanah Melayu semenjak 500 tahun yang lalu.

Dalam tempuh sebelum 31hb Ogos 1957, 9 Raja-Raja Melayu bermuafakat menjadikan Tanah Melayu (Malaya) sebagai satu warisan.

Warisan ini diwariskan kepada berjuta-juta rakyat Malaysia sebagai waris bersama.

Wasiat akhir adalah terkandung dalam Perlembagaan dan perjanjian-perjanjian lain. Ini juga dikenali sebagai “7 Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu”.

Wasiat dan Hibah

Wasiat Akhir Diperkasakan Undang-Undang *

Al-Musi (pewaris) – 9 Raja-Raja Melayu sewaktu Merdeka.

Al-wasiyya (wasiat akhir) – Perlembagaan Persekutuan termasuk perjanjian lain.

Waris – semua rakyat Malaysia termasuk anda dan saya.

Al-Wasi (pentadbir) – 9 Sultan yang membentuk Majlis Raja-Raja.

Ketua Al-Wasi – DYMMSPB Yang di-Pertuan Agong yang mewakili Majlis Raja-Raja.

Warisan – keistimewaan kewarganegaraan, bentuk dan watak Malaysia yang kita menikmati.

Betapa indahnya prinsip-prinsip yang selaris ini:-

> Menerima warisan kami sebagai waris.

> “Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” memperuntukkan warisan kepada semua rakyat Malaysia untuk menjaga kepentingan keturunan.

“Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” jelas menyatakan bahawa terwujud tujuh ketetapan tidak boleh diubah tanpa tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja.

BERDASARKAN PENGAKUAN TUN DR. MAHATHIR ATAS KESILAPANNYA;

DAN BAGI PIHAK 30 JUTA WARGANEGARA MALAYSIA,

Saya merayu untuk Suruhanjaya Siasatan DiRaja (RCI) ditubuhkan untuk menyiasat pindaan Perlembagaan Persekutuan pada tahun 1983, 1993 dan 1994.

1. Sekiranya 9 Raja-Raja bertindak sebagai ‘Al-wasi wasiat akhir’, siapa mempunyai kuasa sah untuk memindahkan kuasa Al-wasi kepada undi ahli politik?

2. Adalah 9 Raja-Raja tertekan apabila Tuanku-Tuanku menyerah kepada rang undang-undang (RUU) tersebut; dengan pengetahuan bahawa RUU ini akan meminggirkan ‘kuasa Al-wasi’?

3. Adakah satu referendum diwajibkan di seluruh negara untuk mendapatkan persetujuan rakyat Malaysia? Ini kerana rakyat dikenalpasti sebagai ‘waris’ dan kepentingan mereka akan terjejas.

4. Adakah rakyat Malaysia diberi maklum mengenai keputusan ahli politik untuk meminggirkan tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja dalam pemindahan RUU?

5. Adakah rakyat Malaysia diberi penjelasan bahawa bil di Parlimen yang tidak menerima persetujuan dan perkenan Agong akan seterusnya secara otomatik menjadi RUU sahih dalam tempuh 30 hari?

6. Adakah satu persetujuan secara lisan atau bertulis diterima dari rakyat Malaysia sebagai penerima warisan?

2g Suruhanjaya DiRaja

Soalan-soalan penting ini perlu dijawab dengan segera kerana situasi ini boleh memberi kesan kepada integriti institusi dan kedaulatan undang-undang.

Kecuali dan sehingga satu referendum dijalankan di seluruh negara, untuk mendapatkan muafakatan 30 juta rakyat Malaysia;

Apa-apa pindaan kepada Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang meminggirkan kuasa Agong sejak 1983;

Seperlunya diteliti dari kedudukan preundangan yang sah; dan kalau dikenalpasti bertentangan perundangan; maka RUU tersebut mestilah dimansuh, ditolak dan ditarik-balik.

Saya dengan rendah hati merayu supaya tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja diwajibkan semula untuk perundangan Akta RUU di Parlimen.

Tun Dr. M  Memohon Maaf Kerana Mengubah Perlembagaan

Tun Dr. Mahathir secara agresif meminda Perlembagaan Persekutuan semasa beliau memangku jawatan PM Malaysia selama 22 tahun. Dari 1981 hingga 2003.

Ini terjadi terutamanya pada tahun 1983, 1993 dan 1994.

Parlimen Malaysia *

Biasanya dalam demokrasi parlimen, ahli parlimen membuat perbahasan dan pengundian untuk meluluskan rang undang-undang (RUU).

Apabila ia menerima tandatangan Yang di-Pertuan Agong dan meterai DiRaja, RUU ini menjadi Akta Parlimen.

Dalam kes Tun Dr M, parti pemerintah (Barisan Nasional) mengubal beberapa RUU yang diiringi kempen pahit.

Matlamatnya ialah untuk meminggirkan perlindungan dan keperluan tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja.

Adakah Agong menandatangani RUU ini secara sukarela; dan telah dinasihati dengan secukupnya?

Adakah Agong diberi maklum sepenuhnya bahawa RUU ini akan mengalihkan kuasa Agong kepada Ahli Parlimen yang diundi oleh rakyat?

A Final Will And Royal Inheritance

1 Will Gavel

Have you been been named as a heir in a final will before?

Asuming; someone close to you had passed away; whether family or friend.

The administrator (executor) of the deceased’s estate have informed that you had been named as a heir in the final will of the deceased.

This means that you are a joint-heir (beneficiary) of an inheritance of properties, possessions, stocks or cash.

2d family

Families Sitting In Back Of Van Smiling

Important Legal Points *

1. The testator is the writer of the final will. He appoints the executors and names the heirs entitled to receive the inheritance.

2. The heirs cannot be changed. You have a lawful right to receive everything as stated in the will.

3. The contents of the final will cannot be changed. The executor of the estate does not have the power to change the final will; to make the final will any ‘better’.

4. The executor is given the mandate to distribute the estate only according to the instructions in the final will as stated by the testator.

5. The executor cannot be changed unless the court is convinced of the executor’s incompetence. Hence, only by court order.

This Is Our Story *

This happened in historical Malaya before 31st Aug 1957. Now the story becomes very interesting.

The 9 Malay Sultans had bequeath Tanah Melayu (combined) which were ruled by the Malay Monarchy for the past 500 years.

This enormous estate was a bequeathment to millions of Malaysian citizens as joint heirs.

The Dynamics Of The Will Is Activated *

Testators – the 9 Sultans at the time of Merdeka.

Final Will – the Federal Constitution including other agreements.

Joint heirs – you, me and all the citizens of Malaysia.

Executors – the 9 Sultans forming the Rulers Council.

Chief Executor – the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King) representing the Rulers’ Council.

Inheritance – the privileges of citizenship, the form and character of Malaysia that we live in.

What a beautiful parallel of principles between:-

> Receiving our inheritance as heirs.

> “Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” leaving an inheritance to all Malaysians.

“Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” clearly states that its seven immutable declarations cannot be changed without the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal.

Recently, former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir made an apology on his website.

http://chedet.cc/?p=2234

“I would like to apologise for the amendment to the Constitution which made the approval and signature of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (the King) no longer necessary for the legalising of an Act of Parliament.”

2c family

BASED ON TUN DR. MAHATHIR’S ADMISSION OF WRONGDOING,

AND ON BEHALF OF 30 MILLION MALAYSIAN CITIZENS,

I appeal for a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to be established to investigate the Federal Constitution amendments in 1983, 1993 and 1994.

1. If the present 9 Sultans were acting as ‘executors of the will’, who has the lawful authority to transfer the ‘executor’s powers’ to the politician’s vote?

2. Were the Sultans (being executors) subjected to duress when Their Majesties consented; knowing that the enacted Acts will diminish the ‘powers of the executors’?

3. Was there a nationwide referendum to seek the consent and approval of all Malaysians since their best interests would be affected as ‘joint-heirs of the final will’?

4. Were Malaysian citizens duly informed on the politicians’ decision to sideline the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal in the Constitutional amendments?

5. Were Malaysian citizens informed that any bills in Parliament that does not receive royal assent will automatically become law of the nation within 30 days?

6. Was there a written or verbal consent recorded from the 30 million Malaysians being ‘joint-heirs’ and beneficiaries?

RCI

These imperative questions need to be answered urgently as the situation can affect the integrity of our institutions and the rule of law.

Unless and until a nationwide referendum is held to obtain the consensus of the 30 million Malaysians;

Any amendments to the Federal Constitution that diminishes the Agong’s (King’s) powers since 1983;

Should be scrutinised of its lawful standing; and if such are identified as conflicting with the rule of law; these Acts should be completely repealed, rejected and retracted.

I humbly appeal that the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal to be made compulsory once again for the legislation of laws in the Parliament.

Tun Dr. M Apologises For Changing Constitution

Tun Dr. Mahathir aggressively amended the Federal Constitution while he was Malaysia’s PM for 22 years. From 1981 to 2003.

In a rare admission of wrongdoing, Tun Dr. M made this apology on his website.

Malaysia’s Parliament *

Usually in a parliamentary democracy, the members of parliament (MPs) debate and vote to legislate bills.

Once it receives the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal, the bill becomes an Act of Parliament.

In Tun Dr M’s case, the ruling coalition legislated several bills orchestrated with a bitter public campaign.

The objective was to remove the necessity and safeguard of the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal.

Did the Agong (King) signed the legislation willingly; and was advised sufficiently?

Was the Agong (King) fully informed that this bill will shift his Majesty’s powers to the MPs elected by the people?

Acts of Parliament *

All 7 declarations contained in the respective Acts of Parliament cannot be amended in the Constitution without the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal.

Tun Dr Mahathir apologised that he as the PM had made the King’s signature and royal seal no longer necessary for legislating of laws.

Does it mean theoretically that all 7 declarations can now be changed by a 2/3 Parliamentary vote?

I believe that these vital questions cannot be satisfactorily answered without the formation of a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI).

I humbly appeal to the Government of Malaysia to establish a RCI urgently.

Something Very Strange Is Going On – Public Caning In Malaysia

On 13th July 2017, the Kelantan State Legislative Assembly unanimously passed an amendment to the Syariah Criminal Procedure Enactment 2002. However, this revised enactment has yet to receive royal assent.

This was to allow caning in full public view for Syariah offences which were previously witnessed only by prison officials. Four types of offences include sodomy, illicit sex (zina), alcohol consumption and false accusation of zina. Law applicable for Muslims only.

As a non-Muslim and a concerned Malaysian, these are my observations.

1 Aceh Public-Caning - Cameras

1. Caning In Aceh – Reverting From ‘Public’ To Private

Two months ago, Aceh (Indonesia) implemented ‘public’ canings in response to demands by its Islamic hardliners. Since then, canings were carried out in full public view in front of the mosque after prayers for Syariah offenders.

2 20170716 Nst - Aceh may make canings private

Why is Aceh now reverting the ‘public’ canings back to the privacy of prison walls? Has our Muslim scholars, politicians and assemblymen consulted the Muftis in Aceh as to enquire what went wrong?

3 Surah 24.2

2. What Does The Holy Qu’ran Say?

“The (unmarried) woman or (unmarried) man found guilty of sexual intercourse – lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of ALLAH, if you believe in ALLAH and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.” Surah 24:2

FYI, the videos and images of the ‘public’ canings in my blog are sourced from Google, Facebook and Youtube. What does the “group of believers” mean? Does it include ALL the 7 billion people in the world today?

I note that the punishment of caning is stipulated (only for zina) and necessary for moral education. But what about caning in full public view in the Internet era? Is that why Aceh is retreating so fast?

Then why are PAS and UMNO politicians pushing ahead and blatantly ignoring the facts? What are their real motives?

3. The Internet Is Forever

If the new enactments receive royal assent, Kelantan will be the only state in Malaysia and in the world which mandate canings implemented ‘publicly’. I have omitted the ISIS in Iraq and Raqqa Syria because many Muslims don’t even consider them Islamic.

While Syariah offenders in other Malaysian states will undergo ‘private’ canings thus sparing them the public humiliation from the unbelievers.

4 caning

Imagine the shame, opprobrium, disgrace and dishonour borne by the Muslimin and Muslimat. To be a hot topic of discussion amongst the non-believers. In the neighbourhood, in the marketplace and in the office. Is this what the Holy Qu’ran commanded?

The lashings are video-recorded on Facebook and Youtube; to be viewed by millions. “Selama-lamanya”, forever is a very long time. Try Google image searching with the keywords “Aceh” or “Islamic State” and “caning”.

4. Malaysia’s Supreme King

As The Yang DiPertuan Agong of Malaysia, Sultan Muhammad V is the Head of ISLAM for Kelantan, Federal Territories, Penang, Melaka, Sabah and Sarawak.

5a sultan kelantan

Sultan Muhammad V is deeply loved by the people of Malaysia. It is true that His Majesty has a very special place in the hearts of the Kelantanese.

5b sultan kelantan

Is it because the Kelantanese are so loved that they are given far exceeding than the doctor’s prescribed dosage?

Is caning done publicly for full viewing for the unbelievers (ready with their mobiles and camcorders), only for Kelantan’s ummah’s own good?

How will His Majesty explain to his subjects….. that Muslims in Kelantan are different from the Muslims in FT, Penang, Melaka, Sabah and Sarawak….. hence they deserve different treatments.

5. Time To Expose Secret Agendas

What are the PAS and UMNO politicians secretly thinking? Something very strange is going on. Indeed!!!

Don’t they know that this amendment will disconnect the Kelantanese grassroots from their Malay Ruler?

Don’t they know that enactment (if passed into law) will discolour the international image of our beloved King, the YDP AGONG who is the Head of ISLAM in the Nation-State of Malaysia?

PAS & UMNO politicians claims to champion the royal institution and uphold the dignity of ISLAM. But their political posturing have a hidden agenda.

6. Judicial Discretion For Whom?

Kelantan’s Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah says, “Caning can now be carried out inside prison or outside prison, depending on court decision.”

6 20170713 Star - Kelantan whips up a storm

This means that the Syariah Court Magistrate or Judge has the discretionary power, to vary, to be selective – as to who receives publicity.

This leads to the unhealthy inference and (mis)perception; rightly or wrongly; that the rich and powerful (offenders) could receive favourable treatment.

Neither PAS or UMNO politicians have explained why the Judicial exception (or escape clause) is present if ‘public’ caning is a divine command as they so claimed. Where is the perception of fairness; that all Muslims are equal before the Islamic law?

7 20170714 Star - Zahid_Keep it in perspective

Deputy PM Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is not addressing the real issues. Obviously this new law does not apply to non-Muslims.

7. Prime Minister’s Office

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) have failed to exercise thought leadership on behalf of His Majesty, our beloved AGONG.

Perhaps it is now time to establish His Majesty’s royal think-tank which is independent of the PMO or politicians.

Patriotic thought leaders who are loyal to His Majesty’s cause will answer the call to chart the future of Malaysia.

Is Malaysia An Islamic Nation? Part 7 of 7

I admit that this topic has been the subject of intense debate in the social media. Let’s examine the clues to the perplexing question.

(I) The Head of the nine Malay States are Muslim Rulers.

(II) The majority of the citizens of Malaysia are Muslims.

(III) The official religion of Malaysia’s Constitution is ISLAM.

(IV) The Supreme King, The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) is Muslim.

7 Raja Raja

My Humble Opinion

This is my personal opinion that as at 31st August 1957, our Independence Day.

* The Malay Rulers had ceded only the civil administration of the Government;

* The Malay Rulers have fully retained their responsibilities as the Head of ISLAM, which is the official religion of Malaysia.

* Based on the above (I), (II), (III) and (IV), I am fully convinced that Malaysia is an Islamic nation.

* Muslims have the inalienable right to be governed by Islamic laws and such laws like RUU355 does not apply to non-Muslims.

Islam in Malaysia is represented by the Shafi’i version of SUNNI theology and jurispudence. In layman’s term, this is a moderate and progressive form of ISLAM endorsed by the Malay Rulers.

I am also grateful that non-Muslims in Malaysia are accorded the freedom of faith and worship. Hence, all other religions and its adherents must grant Islam the rightful place of esteem and respect.

7 Islam in Msia

Final Message

We are well aware that politicians in Malaysia face a huge perception of mega corruption. There has been social talk that if the current civil government falls in GE14, hence ISLAM will also fall. This is absolutely nonsense.

Our Malay Sultans and The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong is the strong bastion and defender of ISLAM. The position of the Malay Rulers and the preeminence of ISLAM is enshrined immutable in our Constitution.

Malaysia must not sink in the sea of corruption. We must break away from the past. Without our corrupt politicians.

Just how old are you, Umno Baru?

JUST HOW OLD ARE YOU, UMNO?
MySinChew.com 2017-05-11 09:28

By Mohsin Abdullah

Usually people tend to claim to be younger than their actual age. But not the people in Umno. No not individually but as a group.

They have been at it for years. This year, they are saying their party is 71 years old. Hence, today being Umno Day, the party is celebrating its 71st birthday.

Going by history that Umno was formed on 11 May 1946 by the late Datuk Onn Jaafar, the Umno folks are right.

But wait, wasn’t that Umno of ’46, pardon the expression, “dead and buried ” back in 1988?

A quick throwback.

Older readers would surely remember. But I’ll write it anyway, for the younger readers who might not be familiar with the story. And even for those who knew, well, take a trip down memory lane all the same.

On 24 April 1987, Umno held its annual general assembly and triennial party election after a vicious and bitter campaign.

Fighting for power was Team A led by then president Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his deputy Ghafar Baba, against Team B headed by Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah aided by Musa Hitam as number two.

Mahathir and Ghafar won.Two of the three vice presidents elected were from Team A, and the supreme council made up of 16 Team A members compared to nine from Team B.

Then allegations of irregularities, said to be hurled by Team B supporters, surfaced.

On 25 June 1987, an appeal was made by 12 Umno delegates (one pulled out subsequently) to have the Umno assembly and the 24 April election declared null.

In short, the issue was brought to the court. After a series of interlocutory hearings over the discovery of documents that took more than seven months, the matter finally came before Justice Harun Hashim in the Kuala Lumpur High Court on 4 February 1988.

The judge ruled that under existing law he had no option but to find the party, Umno, to be an unlawful society due to the existence of several unregistered branches which contravened the Societies Act of 1966.

Hence, the question of the assembly itself being illegal (sought by the 11 Umno delegates) became academic.

So, based on the High Court decision, Umno the party “died”, again pardon the expression, on 4 February 1988. And it was not revived. Never resurrected.

Instead, Dr Mahathir put into motion the machinery to form a new party, a surrogate party, so to speak, and in due course registered it formally calling it Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu (Baru) or United Malays National Organisation (New), meaning the new Umno registered by Mahathir back then, which is the current Umno led by Datuk Seri Najib Razak, was born in 1988.

Which makes the party a youngish 29 years old instead of the 71 years presently trumpeted all over the country.

Umno must have its own reasons for wanting to be known older than its present age, perhaps to show credibility, longevity and sustainability?

Or perhaps because of this — the suffix “Baru” was eventually dropped and Umno (Baru) became both the de facto and de jure successor of Umno (with the old Umno’s assets handed to them).

Maybe that’s why Umno now calls itself simply Umno and not Umno Baru anymore.

The fact remains although the Umno of Datuk Onn is long gone. What we now have is a replacement. Not a or a resurrected version nor a reincarnation of the Umno formed in 1946.

Anyway, Selamat Hari Ulang Tahun Umno!

Congratulations Hadi For Tabling RUU355

Opposition Islamist Leader/ PAS President Hadi Awang was successful in tabling a private member bill in the Malaysian Parliament on Thurday, 6th April 2017.

This was a day full of ironic moments. Political analysts will be busy deciphering for hidden insights.

1. This was the first time that the current Parliament Speaker Pandikar Amin (BN) allowed a private member bill. He is from the same party UMNO as is Malaysia PM Najib Razak.

2. The opposition-sponsored Islamic bill was tabled followed by speeches from PAS President Hadi Awang and PAS Secretary General Takiyuddin Hassan.

3. NO DEBATES BY MPS WERE ALLOWED. NO VOTING EITHER. After which, the Speaker adjourned the Parliamentary sitting until 24th July 2017.

Hadi in Parliament

 

4. This use (or abuse) of power was unprecedented by the Speaker. No prior notice was given to the opposition law-makers or Members of Parliament. The Speaker insisted that he was no bloody fool.

5. Incidentally, the ruling coalition (BN) lost the popular vote but won the last general elections (GE13). GE14 should be due in another 12 months.

6. BN’s previous election platform was “diversity” in a multi-religious populace – with “Moderate Islam” as a leadership anchor.

7. The Islamic Bill RUU355 proposes harsh punishments like 100 lashes of the cane and 30 years imprisonment. However, not all offences are clearly defined. Some critics say it is akin to being a blank cek/ cheque.

8. Concerned citizens should now be asking – is Malaysia still anchored on “Moderate Islam” or “Wasathiyah”? Can we expect our politicians to keep election promises in Malaysia?

9. Umno is seen as the dominant partner in the multi-religious ruling coalition. Is Umno abandoning its traditional allies to flirt with opposition Islamist PAS?

10. Malaysia is moving into uncharted and perilous waters. A dark storm is  surely looming ahead.
