Ramadan contribution to mosques and suraus

Early Saturday morning, we had a simple ceremony at Sekolah Agama Masjid Darul Ehsan, SS15 Subang Jaya to present cheques to the 5 mosques and 14 suraus in DUN Subang Jaya for the month of Ramadan. I allocated RM2000 for each mosque and RM1000 for each surau from my annual state constituency allocation to assist them in their month-long 'buka puasa' programmes. This is in addition to other allocations which I have set aside for the single mothers and orphans who are also observing Ramadan. Below are some photos of the ceremony:







You will not read of this in all mainstream newspapers as only two reporters turned up for the event although an invitation was sent out to all of our media contacts. Reports of a DAP assemblyman contributing to mosques and suraus for Ramadan is taboo for Utusan Malaysia and the likes. I use my annual state allocation to help my constituents regardless of their race, religion or political affiliation. There is absolutely no need to label mosques or suraus as pro-Pakatan or pro-UMNO. As long as the mosque or surau is a genuine place of worship that serves its community, opens its doors to all and is duly recognised by Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (JAIS), it is entitled to my constituency allocation.

Hi Hannah,

It's good to see such warm gesture in our multi-racial society. YB Theresa Kok did similar community exercise, and I had applauded her move. I hope that you (and other non-Muslim YBs) have been duly briefed on surau/masjid protocol. May I suggest that you loosely cover your hair with an open selendang (headscarf) when under such context. Of course it is not mandatory nor expected of you, since you are not a Muslim. However, such kind gesture will surely be appreciated and admired by the surau/masjid committee/community. Bravo once again!

Darick,

The sooner we start confronting them head-on, the better. And that means, start by addressing them as they are known, UMNO and Barisan Nasional (BN). Have the courage to stand and stare directly in their eye. Naming them arm-no and B-end is an indication that we fear them.

YB Hannah Yeoh,

You are just fabulous. Your contribution to society as a politician have scared umno so much so that najib insist that he wants Selangor back and I suppose he meant to grab it by hook or by crook. He knows that Selangor will continue to be in PR's hand come the next GE so he need to take over now by using intimidation from the help of the macc and the institutions that he controlled.

Please ensure your own safety is well guarded.

I am very happy to meet you at the BM forum.

Bravo YB ! This is what I called 1 Malaysia. Don't need to talk so much, just set a good example, and you will touch rakyat's hearts. I hope all parties; especially religious parties will support a good assemblyman when you see one, no matter which political party she/he comes from. Isn’t this being taught in all religions, we have to support the good, and avoid the bad? We should practise what we are preaching.

The problem with some politicians is that they talk so much but somehow their action is totally different from their words, and the funniest thing is that they thought no body notice that. Sometimes I really pity them, how could one make oneself so low? It’s a sin to bring ourselves to such a low standard, it means we don’t love and have no respect to what the Highest Almighty gives us.
