Perkasa rep says never called G25 ‘deviant’

Perkasa rep says never called G25 ‘deviant’

Perkasa Islamic affairs bureau chief Dr Amini Amir Abdullah dismissed news report that Perkasa had formally declared the group as deviant, saying it was only highlighting what it felt was improper criticism of the country’s religious laws.

“We never called them deviant. There was never any formal decision. We only criticised the manner of their criticism against Shariah laws.

“They should not be doing it openly, but instead go through the proper channel: like raising their concerns with the Malaysian Islamic Development Institute (Ikim) or the Shariah Courts Department,” Amini told Malay Mail Online.

Amini’s remarks contradict, however, a resolution passed during Perkasa’s annual assembly last week in which it wanted Putrajaya to declare the G25 as a deviant group for propagating liberalism and pluralism in Islam.

G25 spokesman Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin, in an interview with Malay Mail Online, responded by calling Perkasa and its other critics extremists whom she said behaved like the Islamic State terrorist group in their intolerance of dissenting views.

Like the IS, Noor Farida said G25’s critics had the tendency to arbitrarily declare those with different opinions as apostates, and that her group’s objective was to reform Shariah laws and not change the religion entirely.

But Amini rubbished the comparison with the IS and insisted that Perkasa was a group that believed in the concept of wasatiyyah (moderation).

“How can we be like [IS]? We have declared them as un-Islamic because we have always believed in the concept of wasatiyyah.

“We only criticise G25 because they keep attacking the Islamic institutions. These institutions are given the power to protect and uphold Islam,” he said.

The Malay rights group also argued that G25 has no standing to urge the Malaysian government to review Shariah legal system, and that its claim that Shariah laws are unconstitutional and violate Islamic legal principles were “wild accusations”.

Amini then said that it was the G25 that was mimicking the IS by spreading ideas deemed to be against the “true” teachings of Islam.

“It seems that the G25 have a lot of confusion in their mind. Because of that, they are being accused of being deviant. Perkasa think that people who accused them of being deviant are not using the language of [IS],” he said in a statement issued in response to Noor Farida’s assertion.

Perkasa also said that Malaysia should be thankful that Islam is “institutionalised” in the form of the wasatiyah, but did not explain what this meant.

The Malay rights group then ended the statement by calling on G25 to be “more careful” when talking about Islam and advised the latter to “think Islam first before the personal or group interest”.

Bajet Pembangkang Tidak Realistik, Gula-Gulakan Rakyat - Penganalisis

Bajet Pembangkang Tidak Realistik, Gula-Gulakan Rakyat - Penganalisis


Oleh Mohd Hisham Abdul Rafar

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 18 (Bernama) -- Ketika kerajaan giat berusaha mengurangkan kenaikan kos sara hidup rakyat dengan memberi dan meneruskan pelbagai insentif meliputi segenap aspek menerusi Bajet 2016, pakatan pembangkang pula menawarkan alternatif bajet yang meliputi 10 perkara utama.

Menerusi 'Belanjawan Pakatan Harapan 2016', pakatan pembangkang yang dianggotai DAP - Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) - Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah), mereka membentangkan dokumen 'Belanjawan Alternatif' yang lebih menjurus kepada soal tadbir urus kewangan negara termasuk langkah-langkah penjimatan.

Meskipun pembangkang berhasrat menolak Bajet 2016 bertema 'Mensejahtera Kehidupan Rakyat' yang dibentangkan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak pada 23 Okt lepas, namun undian menyokong daripada anggota Parlimen Barisan Nasional (BN) melebihi undi pembangkang.

Persidangan Dewan Rakyat pada Isnin meluluskan Rang Undang-undang Perbekalan 2016 di peringkat dasar dengan 128 Anggota Parlimen menyokong rang undang-undang itu, berbanding 74 yang menolak.

SEPULUH PERKARA UTAMA CADANGAN BAJET PEMBANGKANG

Sepuluh perkara utama yang disenaraikan pembangkang ialah meletakkan syarikat pelaburan strategik kerajaan iaitu 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) dalam pentadbiran; memisahkan portfolio Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan dan menyokong lanjutan tempoh perkhidmatan Gabenor Bank Negara Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz untuk dua tahun lagi.

Selain itu, turut dicadangkan dalam bajet alternatif pembangkang ialah memansuhkan Cukai Barang dan Perkhidmatan (GST) dengan mengumpulkan semua pembekalan bawah senarai kadar sifar bagi mengurangkan inflasi; menubuhkan tabung pembiayaan petroleum untuk penduduk Sabah dan Sarawak; peruntukan kepada perbelanjaan pembinaan kereta api laju Kuala Lumpur-Singapura diagihkan semula kepada pembinaan landasan kereta api di Sabah dan Sarawak.

Turut tersenarai ialah penjimatan RM30 bilion daripada langkah-langkah pencegahan rasuah; mengurangkan dividen Petronas kepada RM20 bilion; penyusunan semula pembyaran bantuan kewangan secara bersyarat berdasarkan pekerjaan dan kehadiran sekolah serta menyusun semua subsidi padi dan meningkatkan hasil pengeluaran pertanian.

Mengulas kesemua cadangan yang terkandung dalam bajet pembangkang, pensyarah Fakulti Ekologi Manusia Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Dr Amini Amir Abdullah menyifatkan bajet berkenaan sebagai tidak realistik.

"Ia sekadar 'reflective budget' yang digunakan untuk menyaingi bajet Kerajaan Persekutuan. Pembangkang umpama bermimpi di siang hari dan cuba menggula-gulakan rakyat," katanya kepada Bernama.

Prof Madya Mohd Izani Mohd Zain daripada Jabatan Pengajian Kenegaraan dan Ketamadunan UPM berkata bajet pembangkang lebih bersifat responsif kepada isu semasa seperti 1MDB dan GST.

Sesuatu bajet, katanya perlu melihat secara lebih menyeluruh agar semua aspek pembangunan dapat dijayakan.

"Belanjawan ini bersifat populis kerana hanya dapat menarik perhatian rakyat tetapi asas bajet tidak begitu jelas," katanya.

KURANG PENGALAMAN PENGURUSAN

Pembangkang, kata Amini Amir dilihat masih kekurangan pengalaman dalam soal pengurusan dan pentadbiran kerajaan kerana cabaran yang dihadapi dalam pengurusan negeri adalah satu penanda aras kepada keupayaan mereka mentadbir.

Di Selangor, misalnya kerajaan negeri yang diterajui PKR berdepan dengan isu kekurangan air terawat, isu penubuhan Darul Ehsan Investment Group (DEIG) dan juga kerjasama antara parti yang membentuk kerajaan iaitu PAS, PKR, DAP.

Anggota PAS, yang menjadi Exco negeri dan menyertai Amanah, menambah lagi kecelaruan. Cabaran seumpamanya turut berlaku di Pulau Pinang sebelum Pakatan Harapan terbentuk.

Anggota Parlimen Shah Alam Khalid Abdul Samad daripada Amanah pada 9 Nov lepas dilapor sebagai mencadangkan supaya kerajaan negeri mengumumkan status kerajaan negeri sepertimana yang dilakukan kerajaan DAP Pulau Pinang yang mengisytiharkan diri sebagai kerajaan Pakatan Harapan.

Selain itu, katanya pembangkang juga kurang pengalaman dalam konteks pengurusan bajet berbanding BN.

"Mereka sebenarnya mempunyai strategi picisan untuk memancing undi rakyat. Jika dibandingkan, bajet pembangkang (dengan Bajet 2016) ini umpama langit dan bumi. Soalnya sejauh mana bajet yang ditawarkan pembangkang ini mampu memberikan kesejahteraan kepada rakyat?

"Satu contoh mudah ialah dalam soal penyediaan kemudahan air bersih. Di Selangor, adakah wajar kerajaan negeri meningkatkan tarif air sedangkan bekalan air selalu terputus dan airnya berkeladak?," katanya.

Mohd Izani berkata pembangkang mulai sedar bahawa dalam keadaan ekonomi yang tidak menentu, perkhidmatan kepada rakyat tidak boleh lagi diberikan secara percuma.

"Isu bekalan air di Selangor secara percuma kini mula disemak semula oleh kerajaan negeri... isu misalnya pendidikan percuma kini sudah tidak lagi kedengaran kerana mereka mulai sedar ia akan memberi implikasi kewangan dan beban kepada kerajaan negeri," katanya.

BAJET MELEPASKAN 'BATOK DITANGGA'

Adakah bajet pembangkang ini memenuhi aspirasi segenap rakyat atau sekadar hanya mahu menyaingi Kerajaan Persekutuan atau sekadar ikutan kepada amalan parti pembangkang di luar negara yang mengeluarkan bajet alternatif mereka?

Mengulas persoalan itu, Amini Amir menyifatkan bajet pembangkang hanyalah sekadar 'melepaskan batuk ditangga', yang bermaksud melakukan sesuatu kerja dengan tidak bersungguh-sungguh.

Beliau berkata bajet yang ditawarkan pembangkang bukan sahaja tidak komprehensif malah tidak menyeluruh yang tidak mencakupi keperluan semua lapisan rakyat.

"Mengkritik orang memanglah mudah tetapi untuk melakukan seperti Kerajaan Persekutuan bukanlah semudah itu. Pembangkang perlu lebih teliti dan prihatin apabila menyediakan draf bajet mereka.

"Banyak lagi perkara yang perlu diberikan perhatian oleh mereka demi kesejahteraan dan kebahagiaan segenap lapisan masyarakat serta lebih realistik sifatnya dan bukannya bersifat kosmetik dan populis," katanya.

Mohd Izani berkata tawaran bajet alternatif adalah amalan biasa dan ia turut dilakukan oleh negara luar seperti Singapura.

"Ya. Ia berlaku dan menjadi amalan contohnya Singapura. Parti pembangkang Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) turut membentangkan bajet bayangan atau shadow budget," katanya.

Bajet 2016 memperuntukkan RM267.2 bilion, berbanding RM260.7 bilion peruntukan dipinda 2015.

Daripada jumlah itu, sejumlah RM215.2 bilion bagi perbelanjaan mengurus, RM52 bilion untuk perbelanjaan pembangunan.

Opposition's Alternative Budget 'Too Sweet' And Unrealistic, Say Analysts

Opposition's Alternative Budget 'Too Sweet' And Unrealistic, Say Analysts

By Mohd Hisham Abdul Rafar

KUALA LUMPUR, (Bernama) -- While the Federal Government's Budget 2016 focuses on strengthening the economy and safeguarding the well-being of the people and reducing their cost of living, the opposition coalition's alternative budget's main emphasis is on financial governance.

The newly-formed Pakatan Harapan's Alternative Budget 2016 has 10 highlights, ranging from abolising the Goods and Services Tax (GST) to improving the livelihood of farmers.

The coalition - comprising DAP, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) - rejected the Federal Government's Budget 2016, which was tabled by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in the Dewan Rakyat on Oct 23, but the opposition MPs failed to vote it down.

Debate on the Supply Bill 2016 at the policy stage ended on Monday and when it was put to the vote, there were 128 "ayes" and 74 "nays".

ALTERNATIVE BUDGET'S TEN HIGHLIGHTS

The 10 highlights of the opposition's alternative budget are: putting 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) into administration; separating the portfolios of the Prime Minister and Finance Minister; supporting the extension of Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz's tenure by another two years; abolishing GST by zero-rating all items to mitigate inflation; setting up a petroleum endowment fund for the people of Sabah and Sarawak; reallocating the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail budget for the building of railways in Sabah and Sarawak; incurring savings of RM30 billion from anti-corruption measures; reducing Petroleum Nasional Bhd's dividend to RM20 billion; revamping cash transfers to be conditional on employment and school attendance; and improving the livelihood of farmers by reorganising subsidies.

When asked for his comments, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) lecturer Dr Amini Amir Abdullah dismissed the alternative budget as "unrealistic".

"It's nothing but a reflective budget and was merely drawn up as a rival for the Federal Government's budget. It's obvious the opposition is daydreaming and trying to sweet-talk the rakyat into supporting them," Amini Amir, who is attached to the Faculty of Human Ecology, told Bernama.

Another UPM lecturer Asso Prof Mohd Izani Mohd Zain, who is attached to the Department of Government and Civilisation Studies, said it appeared as if the opposition's budget was drawn up to specifically respond to current issues like 1MDB and GST.

Any national budget, he said, should be drafted in a comprehensive manner, with emphasis on every aspect of development.

"It's a populist budget because it was designed to attract the attention of the people... however, the basis of the budget is not that clear," he said.

LACK OF MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE

According to Amini Amir, Pakatan Harapan had neither the necessary experience nor expertise to put together a good budget to run the country although the coalition was in charge of the Selangor and Penang state governments.

He said the opposition's inability to handle challenges effectively was not a very good benchmark of its ruling capabilities. Among the issues the Selangor government had faced were the lack of treated water supply, the establishment of Darul Ehsan Investment Group and lack of consensus among the three parties - PAS, PKR and DAP - which formed the state government.

PAS members, who were part of the State Executive Council, made matters more complicated when they left the party to join Amanah. Even Penang faced similar challenges before Pakatan Harapan was formed.

Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad, who is now a member of Amanah, had on Nov 9 urged the Selangor government to clarify its status so it would not be seen as a government "made up of coalitions which do not acknowledge each other". Penang had identified itself as a Pakatan Harapan government following the formation of the new pact on Sept 22, some three months after Pakatan Rakyat was dissolved due to disputes between DAP and PAS.

Amini Amir also pointed out to the opposition's inexperience in budget management, in comparison with the Barisan Nasional (BN).

"They (opposition) are merely out to fish for votes. Like the sky and earth, there's a vast difference between the BN government's budget and the one proposed by the opposition. The question is, just how far can the alternative budget safeguard the well-being of the people," he said.

Mohd Izani said the opposition was beginning to realise that in times of economic uncertainties, the government could not offer free services to the people.

"The Selangor government is now reviewing its free water supply scheme. We are also no longer hearing about the opposition's pledge to offer free education because they have probably realised its financial implication and burden on the government," he said.

BUDGET NOT COMPREHENSIVE ENOUGH

Does the opposition pact's alternative budget meet the aspirations of all Malaysians or did they draw it up merely to compete with the Federal Government? Or did they draft one because it was the norm for opposition parties in other countries to come up with alternative budgets?

Commenting on this, Amini Amir said the proposals outlined in Pakatan Harapan's budget did not have the people's interests at heart and reflected the insincerity of the opposition parties.

The budget was not comprehensive enough and did not cover the needs of people in various segments of society, he claimed.

"While, it's easy to criticise, it's certaintly not easy to do what the Federal Government has been doing. The opposition has to be more thorough and sensitive to the needs of the people when drafting their budget.

"There are a lot of other matters they have to pay attention to in order to ensure the well-being of every segment of society. They also have to be more realistic as there's no point in drafting a budget as a cosmetic exercise or which is populist in nature," he said.

Mohd Izani said it was usual for opposition parties in other countries to offer alternative budgets, and he cited the Singapore Democratic Party's shadow budget as an example.

The Federal Government's Budget 2016 has an allocation of RM267.2 billion, an increase from the revised allocation of 260.7 billion for 2015.

Of this amount, RM215.2 billion is for operating expenditure and RM52 billion for development expenditure.
