nation in distress

The World Anthem




by e.s. shankar


I write this not as an expert or even one with an an above average knowledgeable of Zen Buddhism. However, I was extremely impressed with Osho’s writings and speeches on Zen and have borrowed heavily from them. Osho aka Bhagawan Sri Rajneesh died in 1990. CLICK HERE.

But his ashrama or retreat still thrives in Pune, W.India, not far from Bombay in Maharashtra state. He gained much notoriety in the USA for advocating free sex (to get over being obsessed with it) and for owning a fleet of 100 Rolls Royce's bestowed upon him by his followers. He was eventually hounded out of the USA after plea bargaining over illegal immigration charges.

The jury is still out out whether he was a total charlatan or genius. Regardless, when he wrote with a clear mind, he wrote extremely well.

silence is golden

The air is abuzz with great expectations. The assembly is nervous and restless. The gathering of the greatest scholars in the world and thousands, sits in complete silence. The nine Masters are led by Anantha the scholar, Moggalayan the Vedic expert and Sariputta the linguist and philologist. Five hours pass. They cannot leave without a sign from the Enlightened One.

The silence is rudely shattered by uncontrollable laughter. The laughter is neither contagious nor from the Buddha.

The Buddha gets up from under a tree in Sarnath Deer Park in Benares, holiest of Indian cities. He had retired there after achieving Enlightenment in Bodh Gaya in Bihar or ‘Walking Path of Buddha.’ Slowly, measuredly, he walks all the way to the rear of the crowd, looks up, smiles and hands over the flower he has held in silence for five hours to Mahakashyapa. He turns and leaves immediately for Ayodhya, capital of Kosala, where Sri Rama (of the classic Ramayana epic) had ruled from, to wait out his last days.

The silence of the crowd is ever more pregnant. A new Buddha is born two thousand five hundred years ago. A moment is lost for eternity. 

The handing over of the flower is the transference of the key without scriptures, of No-Mind, realisation of ‘one hand clapping,’ Satori and Zazen, Nirvana. Buddha is its founder and Mahakashyapa its first Master or Dhyani. Zen from the Indian Dhyan or consciousness without a single thought, and Dhyani, one who has attained it.

Perish the thought that you should laugh in the presence of the Buddha.

A good joke cannot be explained. Either you get it and laugh spontaneously or you don’t. Good jokes and laughter, realization and laughter, come from the inner silence. There is not even a billionth of a second between the understanding and the laughter. Laughter from silence is divine. Little babies and innocent children laugh toe-curlingly with their entire being. The Buddha of India is a six foot thin ascetic. The Buddha of Japan is a huge smiling, bulky figure to sustain the overflowing belly of mountainous fat.

You laugh at the absurdity of the search all over the world when all the time it is within you. Laugh at solemn, empty temples and prayer-houses where the dead and death are worshipped. Where sad, sad priests and nuns roam. We are the chosen people, the prophets are ours, your god is of stone, my god is good.

Mahakashyapa laughed and was enlightened. You burst with vitality, good health and good nature. People throng to you, what’s the secret of life? Who, what, why, when, where? Not with mind and words alone. You realize it with all your faculties working in peace and harmony! As easy as that, as impossible as that!

The long-cultivated fertile, 'highly developed' Indian brain, partly of Arya descent (not to be confused with the blue eyed-blonde Aryan-hypothesis of Hitler) is responsible for founding four religions. St.Shankara’s Hinduism, Siddhartha’s Buddhism, Mahavira’s Jainism and Guru Nanak’s Sikhism are all products of the Indian mind. But Buddhism could not develop further in India.

The Indian psyche is too inward looking, fatalistic, concerned only with self, with rigid rules and hierarchies. Humanity and its fate is of no concern to it with too much dismissed as fixed and unquestionable. St.Shankara from Kerala, Malayam had conducted an unarmed, peaceful one man holy war to ensure that his beloved Hinduism would not be usurped by ‘these new fangled’ ideas.

Bodhidharma, an Indian and the 6th Master after Mahakashyapa also discovered tea. Bodhidharma (Pu - ti - damo in Chinese) brought Buddhism to China, and is credited with starting the Shaolin Temple associated with meditation, Chinese martial arts and more. CLICK HERE and HERE. More importantly he oversaw Buddhism fusing with mystic Taoism to give Cha’an which took root, tree and branch in China. There a soulless, highly moralistic, puritanical Confucianism was trampled by it. The Chinese mind cannot conceive a lasting religion. But its Middle Way can provide sustenance for new ideas. In 600 AD there were already thirty thousand Buddhist temples and two million Buddhist monks in China . The Buddhists made up about 5% of the Chinese population then!

But the true flowering and blossoming of Buddhism reaches its zenith in Japan, where Cha'an transformed from Dhyan became Zen! The Japanese are the anti-thesis of the Hindu, the Oriental extrovert to the Arya introvert. Do not be fooled by western notions of the ‘inscrutable oriental.’ The inquisitive, patient mind of the Japanese is reflected in its methodical aim for beauty AND perfection. For making the mundane into highly sophisticated art forms. From simple gift wrapping to Chanoyu or tea serving, carp breeding, Ikebana floral arrangement, Karesansui Zen gardens for meditations, moss gardens, cryptomera, cultivating bonsai trees, kyujutsu or archery, karate, judo, kendo, origami, sumo wrestling, gymnastics, athletics, steel sword making, Kabuki theatre, ritualistic colourful festivals, brilliant kimono, cars, tatami houses, cameras and CD players and more. Even death is honourable, almost a religion in itself, made into an art form by ritualistic sepukku or hara kiri.

The Hindu is not concerned with the external, seeing only Maya, the illusion, and leans towards one final death to escape re-birth. He sees poverty as his Karma and does nothing. The secrets of noiseless Flying Vimana of Ravana and Thermo-nuclear missile of Aswatthama are lost forever, sciences dead for millenia.

tending the ox

‘Tending The Ox’, a series of nine connected ancient paintings from China, ends up in Japan in 1300 AD. The allegory is one of man as a farmer searching for his lost consciousness. In the seventh painting, the Ox, the beast of ignorance, has disappeared, conquered, and the farmer sits in contemplation of the next step. He no longer has any use for his farming tools and implements. The eighth canvas is one of bliss, of flowing river, blossoming tree and celestial music. The ninth and final painting is an empty canvas, signifying silence and peace, the No-Mind of Nirvana.

But this is challenged by Chinese records which reveal the existence of a tenth canvas. The enlightened man is seen heading back towards ordinary humanity to share his experiences, to lead others on to the true path! The Buddha lived in Bihar and Benares for 40 years after attaining Nirvana. He did not disappear to some remote spot in the mountains of the Himalayas! CLICK HERE and HERE  for further discussions on the ten paintings.

A seed was found in India, took roots in China and blossomed in Japan. (That's literary beauty from Osho).

But it’s not over. The Chinese mind has gone further. These are exciting times! - a tribute to Osho.

In his inspiring discourse on Zen Buddhism, Osho beautifully illustrates the relationship between a guru and his disciple. He makes a penetratingly exquisite observation on how the parents of a young eagle deliberately push their beloved ward off the nest when it is poised between the desire to fly and the fear of the unknown. The approach of the parents who know and wait for the exact moment the child is ready to fly, is gradual and over many months. But the actual moment of the push is sudden. Zen disciples have been known to achieve enlightenment by the most unorthodox of sudden actions. One achieved such a realization when delivered a kick to his chest at a very precise moment by a knowing Master! Osho talks about meditation being ‘not thinking at all’ and of ‘falling awake, not asleep.


                      Red dragonflies
                             Flowing like a ripple
                                         Towards the crimson sky - Miura Yuzuru

When you read such Haiku (17-syllable) poems and its key 'cutting' word, you ‘know’ the meaning of it without having to try and understand it. The reading, experience and understanding is simultaneous and total. That is a Zen experience!

Thus, yoga, transcendental meditation, haiku, kendo, kyujitsu et al are means to ends, not ends in themselves. It would appear that even the ends are not final, but the beginnings of new journeys and voyages.

And therein may lie true hope and continuity for the human race.

We are all of 1 race, the Human Race!



It has now been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to the satisfaction of the entire world, that Malaysian Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Najib Tun Razak lied blatantly and without any sense of remorse or shame, when he claimed that $2.6 billion credited to his personal bank account in Malaysia in 2013, was a donation from a Saudi Royalty.

The money was clearly stolen by Najib from funds raised in the USA by wholly owned Ministry of Finance subsidiary 1MDB. The money was raised by merchant bankers Goldman Sachs, and diverted by Najib to an off-shore company, Tanore Finance in Singapore, from where it was TT'd to his account.

Among others, the following Malaysians and associates of Jho Low or some who worked closely with him, were also involved in the raising or diverting of 1MDB funds:

1. Low Taek Jho (Jho Low), Najib's principal partner in crime.
2. Eric Tan Kim Loong, Jho Low's associate who was the registered nominee owner of Tanore.
3. Jasmine Loo Ai Swan, 1MDB Executive Director of 1MDB and a cheque signatory of Tanore. She is referred to as Malaysian Official 3 by the USA Department of Justice (DoJ) in its more than US1 billion Kleptocracy civil action in relation 1MDB, and is also wanted by Bank Negara Malaysia.
4. Casey Tang Keng Chee who was succeeded by Jasmine Loo and is wanted by Bank Negara Malaysia.
5. 1MDB ex-Executive Diretor Ismee Ismail and Ex-CEO Shahrol Halmi, both named as Malaysian Officer 1 and 2 respectively by the USA Department of Justice.
6. Roger Ng, of Goldman Sachs Singapore, who suddenly quit his job in 2014. CLICK HERE.

Attorney General Pandi and the USA DoJ have both confirmed that Najib TT'd out about RM2 billion back to Tanore a few months after receiving the $2.6 billion in 2013.

It is very clear now that AG Pandi colluded with Najib to clear him of all corruption charges in relation to the $2.6 billion "donation", as well as $42 million from SRC International, despite a mountain of evidence that Najib had broken just about every law in Malaysia.

Part of the funds were used to pay $3 million of Najib's credit card bills for Rosmah's shopping, $1 million for anti-ageing pills, as well as unexplained cheques to UMNO MP's Ahmad Mazlan ($2 million) and Sharir ($1 million). There apparently were hundreds of other suspicious payments issued shortly before the 2013 General Elections.

It has emerged in recent days that Jho Low had instructed two other Malaysian bank staff at Arab Malaysia Merchant Banking Group (AMMB), ex-MD Cheah Teck Kuang and Joanna Yu who handled Najib's account, to warn him of BNM queries and to maintain secrecy over Najib's wheeling and dealing. CLICK HERE. DAP MP Lim Lip Eng made a police report on this matter yesterday.

What is even more disturbing is that:

1. The actual amount of money received in Najib's bank account was about $4.2 billion and that at least $2 million had also been credited to the account of Najib's wife, Rosmah!

2. This money had started flowing in from as early as 2011 right through to 2014 towards the end of which the account was closed.

3. In September 2012, AMMB officials went, armed with files and documents, to meet BNM governor Zeti to to lodge their concerns about these suspicious and vast amounts of money going in and out of Najib's account. According to a March 2016 Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) program, Zeti fobbed them off and asked them to take their files back with them! This happened 3 times between 2012-2014! CLICK HERE and go to 18.15 minutes, but do watch the ABC clip from beginning to end.

So, what are Zeti and BNM's roles in a massive cover-up for Najib? Was anyone there a beneficiary of payments from Najib's account and the corruptly stolen $2.6 billion? Why did Zeti and BNM cover-up about the other large payments going back to 2011, and were sooooo careful to talk only about the $2.6 billion?

Why all the hoohah NOW about AMMB when it tried to do its job and warn BNM, and BNM knew about the stolen money from way back in 2011?

It is also important to note that 1MDB's audited financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2015 have yet to be filed. In the meantime, its auditors, Deloitte & Co., have put out an incredible alert that their audit reports for 2013 and 2014 should not be relied upon, and have now resigned. Deloitte is the 3rd firm to resign as 1MDB's auditor; the other two, Ernst & Young and PWC, were sacked by Najib when they refused to sign audit reports between 2009-2012. 1MDB now has a $30 billion hole in its balance sheet which Najib is desperately trying to hide from public disclosure.

Najib has so far disgracefully failed to explain:

1. What the $600 million (the difference between $2.6 billion and $2 billion stolen) was spent on, other than to openly lie that 'I did not personally benefit from it.' 

2. Where exactly the $2 billion is now parked. It was TT'd back to Tanore, not to any Saudi Royalty. Therefore, it is still under the control of Najib and Jho Low.

3. What happened to another $1.6 billion?

Malaysians should also take note that since Najib became PM in April 2009, the PMO budget has increased from about $2 billion to $19 billion!! More than that, he has forced Parliament, through the simple majority BN/BUMNO has, to approve supplementary budgets for billions of ringgit, with little transparency over what these huge sums of money were actually spent on. Why bother with budgets if you are going to over-spend every year and not account properly for the money?

There is also the $30 billion the MoF borrowd from EPF to fund so-called private initiative projects. Till today the MoF refuses to publicly disclose the names of Bumiputra contractors who were supposedly awarded contracts, but about which the Bumiputra Contractors' Association knows nothing about! CLICK HERE.

Clearly, the MoF illegally "funded" projects that should have been financed by the private sector, and which it has no means now or in the future of repaying, unless other government projects are crookedly inflated to cover-up the stupendous deficit. Interest alone on that $30 billion would be about $1.2 billion a year!!

With talk that Najib is planning for early general elections in March 2017, it's obvious that part of this money siphoned out of the system is in a slush fund parked off-shore and which will be used by Najib and BUMNO to buy votes and rig the GE.

For sure too, a huge chunk of it has ended up in Najib and Rosmah's pockets. The only reason the authorities are not keen to trace all these missing billions of ringgit that Najib has stolen and siphoned out is because the leadership at the MACC, Police and the AG's office has all been bought, lock, stock and barrel! That much is obvious to even our primary school students.

And last, but not least, Najib has still not sued Sarawak Report and WSJ for defamation over their exposes, or Asia Sentinel for saying he is linked to three murders! Who, besides Najib, Rosmah and BN/BUMNO is not ashamed of being  a Malaysian today?



by e.s. shankar in celebration of Vinayagar Chathurthy


This blog post was not written to preach or propagate Hinduism. Neither is there a desire to stake any fanciful claim, as many Hindu websites do, that the ancient Indians and Hindus represented an advanced civilization that knew for certain all the secrets of the Universe, had measured the heavens, discovered all the mathematics and physical laws of electricity, magnetism and the Grand Unified Theory and invented spacecrafts (Vimana - CLICK HERE) and nuclear weapons (Brahmastra missiles - CLICK HERE ) that could annihilate creation in the blink of an eye.

At the apex of the Hindu pantheon of gods are the Trimurti or Holy Trinity, a concept which at the heart of Christianity too which came much later. The Trimurti comprises Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the Preserver and Shiva the Destroyer/Transformer. Beyond them is the one ultimate God, the primordial formless, changeless, eternal, infinite, omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent Brahman.

To dumb it down, there is no dispute in modern science that at any given moment, all these aspects of creation, preservation and destruction/transformation are going on in the observable universe which, for now, has been estimated to be about 13.7 billion years old and to have a diameter of about 93 billion light years. Out there in the cosmos, new stars and materials are created even as old stars collapse and explode. The cycle of birth, life and death is all around us.

To dumb it down further, a smart entrepreneur (Creator) who has built up a sound business empire would always wish to leave behind a lasting legacy. In the world of commerce, this is done by establishing a holding company where are parked the key assets of the business such as land banks, secret recipes (e.g. Coke), patents, know-how techniques, copyrights and royalty rights etc. The actual business - sales, marketing and distribution - will be undertaken by subsidiary companies run by trusted family members or hired top-notch professionals (Preserver). And then, there is always that aspect of a business empire that will require restructuring, downsizing, winding up and liquidation and branching out into new business areas (Destroyer/Transformer).

So, the Hindu concept of representing the 'One true God' by the visible and divisible functions and processes in our universe - creation, preservation and destruction/transformation - is not as crazy as it may sound at first.

Depending upon the source, Hindu holy books, scriptures and legends have described the appearance of Vishnu as an avatar on Earth on 22, 25 or 26 occasions. Ancient seers have calculated that each life cycle, or Mahakalpa of the Brahman spans exactly Three Hundred Eleven Trillion and Forty Billion years, (311,040,000,000,000), which are broken up into 4 periods or Yugas of unequal years in the ratio 4:3:2:1. At the end of the Yugas, the universe shall be dissolved and after a certain "resting" period, a new creation and cycle begins. By their reckoning, we are now in the final period of this life cycle, the Kalki Avatar, which still has some 427,000 years to go. These  numbers are not supported by any scientific or proven calculations.

However, almost every ancient civilization has recorded a global flood after which life apparently sprang anew. Most seem to agree with a starting date of 3000 BC (Hindus - 3102 BC) for this new and supposedly last Yuga. Vishnu apparently takes on an avatar form to resolve a crisis on Earth that reaches a dangerous impasse and involves large-scale destruction of human lives. Of the 22/25/26 avatars, the Dashavatara or 10 Avatars are significant, as Vishnu is said to have appeared on Earth in a form other than his true self.

The pictures above with their very significant symbols, provide the names of the Vishnu Dashavatara. There are variations in the names included from region to region in India, but the generally accepted sequence in chronological order are:

1. Matsya Avatara (Fish)
Vishnu appears as a gigantic fish (or whale) to tow to safety the 7 great rishi's (Saptha Rishis) and Manu to begin the new Yuga. 

2. Kurma (pronounced Coorma) Avatara (Tortoise/Turtle)
Vishnu appears as a tortoise to support the churning of the milky way to elicit wealth, knowledge of medicine etc. and extract Amrita (food) which gave immortality to the gods.

3. Varaha Avatara (Wild Boar)
Vishnu appears as a wild boar to lift Earth by its tusks to allow the flood waters to recede so that animal and human life could have space to begin and flourish.

4. Narimsha Avatara (Half Lion-Half Man)
Vishnu appears as a giant half lion-half man to liberate Earth from the vicious rule of the demon king Hiranyakasipu. This may mark the transition of animals to semi-human or ape-man in anthropological terms.

5. Vamana Avatara (Dwarf)
Vishnu appears as a scholarly brahmin dwarf, perhaps as an indication of the true arrival of learning and the learned man whose stature is measured by intelligence and action and not mere wealth and power corrupted by ego.

6. Parashumara Avatara (Axe)
Vishnu is born as a son of a rishi. 'Parashu' means axe, signifying an implement used by those who lived and survived in the forest as woodsmen. Parashurama was also responsible for almost wiping out the Kshatriya clan which wielded power unjustly. Legend has it that he filled 5 lakes with the blood of all the Kshatriyas he slaughtered before his grandfather convinced him to halt the carnage!

7. Rama Avatara (Bow and Arrow) - hero of the Ramayana epic
Vishnu is born as the most educated, honourable, chaste, righteous and perfect king Rama to restore peace to the world by defeating the 10-headed demon (rakshasa) King Ravana who had abducted his wife.

8. Balarama Avatara (Plow) or The Buddha Avatara
Vishnu is born as Krishna's elder brother. The plough signifies the arrival of agriculture, farming and the ability of the human race to research, plan and provide for its own food.

9. Krishna Avatara (Many symbols. CLICK HERE)
Vishnu is born to royalty as the enchanting, joyous, mischievous and highly knowledgeable Krishna. He also emerges as the greatest warrior in Hindu mythology, never having lost a battle. He delivers the sacred Bhagavad Gita and its philosophy of dharma to humans, ensures victory goes to the good in the epic Mahabharata in which he is a central figure, and sets the stage for the arrival of the dreaded Kalki Avatar.

10. Kalki Avatara (Symbol - Riding on speedy White Horse with raised sword of execution in hand. CLICK HERE for Kalki Avatar).
In this final avatar which is apparently already underway, Vishnu is destined to appear as Kalki - destroyer of filth - to rid the world of the scourge of kings, queens and leaders who no longer embrace and practice proper principles, morals, ethics or integrity. The white horse signifies an era when time will appear to be moving faster than ever. Kalki will usher in a new golden age before it is all wound up for good.

The picture of the 8th avatar often depicts the Buddha instead of Balarama. Buddha as we know pretty accurately, lived between 563 - 483 BC. From a strictly personal point of view, I think the Buddha was hastily and scurrilously inserted into this list to somehow undermine Buddhism. No doubt the Buddha was born an Indian and Hindu prince, but his teachings and philosophy of achieving Nirvana through meditation, Dyana, and the Middle Way, never really took root in India. For Buddhism to flourish it needed to go abroad to Tibet, Sri Lanka, Burma and Thailand and China and then to Japan and Korea.

Somehow, Balarama with his plow seems to fit naturally into the theme of a progressive human race moving up the scales of evolution. Hinduism was already some 2,500 years old when the Buddha arrived. No doubt he was a great and enlightened soul, and his teachings provided a new way for those tired of austere asceticism, severe meditation techniques and stifling Hindu brahmanical orthodoxy. But frankly, I cannot see his place in this series.

The originals of some of the pictures above are to be found in UK in places like like the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Can it be mere coincidence, these symbols and stories of the Vishnu avataras which were recorded about 2,500-5,000 years ago? Does not Darwin's 1859 Theory of Evolution propose that Life began from a single-celled creature in water which became fish and marine life, then amphibious, evolving into reptiles, birds, animals and humans? And there it is in that sequence above. Admittedly, there are gaps there. The birds and dinosaurs are missing. But, I am sure that with more research the gaps will be bridged.

My interest in it was aroused many years ago. When I was a little boy, there was a framed picture of the Dashavatara in my family prayer room. It fascinated as well as terrified me, especially that picture of the giant half-lion half man (Vishnu) Narasimha avatar ripping open the demon Hiranykasipu's chest and drinking his blood, making sure not a drop of it spilled on the floor so as to not fall foul of a Brahma boon.

Of course, Darwin's Theory of Evolution, with the exception of Hinduism and Buddhism, flies in the face of major religions which maintain that God created everything almost simultaneously and that man and woman were made in the image of God. Were it not for the discoveries of 150-230 million-year old fossils of dinosaurs and other creatures, and 2-3 million years bones of humans, the Creationists may have slam-dunked the debate. Now, exactly where do these Creationists think these scary Jurassic creatures and cave-man and ape-man originated from and who or what made their existence possible?

It's incredible is it not, that despite an avalanche of irrefutable scientific evidence, that in of all places the USA, a sizeable populace exists that does not believe in Evolution, and is constantly seeking to ban the teaching of it in schools? CLICK HERE.

Is there no room in our intellect and thinking for a Creator who/which sets the stage for the survival of the fittest through Evolution with a certain randomness and uncertainty (which has become established as a cornerstone principle in quantum physics and cosmology) factored in and that would be the best model for a sustainable and progressive universe?

Shortly after Najib was appointed prime minister on 3 April 2009 following Badawi's resignation, he got a shock when he looked at BUMNO's finances. On paper, BUMNO was rich based on its direct investments and those illegally held through its nominees. In reality, the papers were worth far, far less then the ink they were printed on.

Profits had turned dangerously negative, dividend cash flow was shrinking and many Government (read as BUMNO) Losing Concerns (GLC) were in dire need of massive state bailout. No one had the sense or ability to create new sources of income. 

Petronas was already hinting that it would have to reduce its contribution to the government's budget if it were to remain competitive, maintain internationally acceptable profits and returns on its investments, and not lose its triple A rating for raising debt via bond issues.

That is when Najib turned his attention to 1MDB and turned it into a giant ponzi scheme, having exhausted raiding the bank balances of many a Plc over the years. He had hit rock bottom arm-twisting our corps of fraudtrepreneur corpo-rat tycoons and so-called "captains of industry", who, without government sponsored monopolies, sweetheart deals and built-in corrupt quid pro quo commissions and kick-backs, did not know how to earn risk-free RM1 of interest from Fixed Deposit, with cash of RM1 million!

Najib proudly announced to BUMNO that he was working out a new deal whereby its finances would be secure forever and a day!

Whether this man who boasts that he is a trained Industrial Economist, and some have openly stated that he has faked his educational degree qualifications, thought out the crooked scheme all by himself, or whether he was persuaded by Jho Paris Hilton, remains to be seen. But, rarely, if at all, do 20-something-year-olds with limited experience in merchant banking and finance, approach prime ministers with thievery as a business model. 

It is a certainty that it is Najib who decided on fraud, misappropriation and money-laundering, and then shopped around for a suitable partner. In stepped a willing and able Jho Paris Hilton, blinded by billion dollar signs and friendship with Najib's step-son Riza Aziz and his mother Rosmah (Najib's 2nd wife).

Najib then roped in the usual band of BUMNO yes men into his team, among whom was another fraud king who was once sacked by BNM for being the person primarily responsible for some RM60 billion in forex losses and a GLC MD who led a company involved in the RM8 billion Scorpene submarine acquisition that was linked to the 2006 Altantuya murder when Najib was Defence Minister. Then there were other civil serpents among whom is a chief secretary who now stupidly and ridiculously claims he was not called to attend 1MDB meetings or consulted, even though it was a 100% Ministry of Finance subsidiary!

So, right from the beginning, it was Najib who intentionally planned the rape, looting and plundering of 1MDB. Five year old children will not buy the story that an unsuspecting, innocent, trusting and extra virgin olive oil Najib was hoodwinked by Jho Paris Hilton into commit fraud on a global scale.

It was all about the arrogance of BUMNO in thinking it alone had some kind of God-given mandate to rule Malaysia forever, and about remaining in power in the face of looming permanent electoral loss. Along the way, the massive amounts of money led to Najib and his family's utter corruption and greed, tainted as he already was in the $575 million corruption scandal involving the Scorpene submarines and Altantuya's murder. Many, already crooked, got sucked further into Najib's 'skim cepat kaya' or 'get rich quick scheme'.

Otherwise, Najib would not have appointed himself Finance Minister and wound down the RM10 billion Terengganu Investment Authority so that he would have total control of 1MDB.

Otherwise, Najib would not have appointed himself Chief Advisor and sole authority at 1MDB for approving all financial commitments and hiring and firing. 

Otherwise, Najib would not have approved 1MDB starting operations with a poor paid up share capital of RM1 million and then, borrowed RM42 billion overseas in US$ to avoid BNM oversight and by misusing Malaysia's sovereign status.

Otherwise, 1MDB would not have deliberately agreed to acquire IPPs at grossly and criminally inflated values (about RM2 billion), now openly admitted to by 1MDB CEO Kaunda Kundi with the incredible announcement that it was done so that our national electricity company, TNB Plc, would not raise tariffs! (In actual fact, subsequently, TNB raised tariffs twice!)

Otherwise, 1MDB would not have borrowed RM4 billion from a local pension fund, claim it had invested it in a foreign coal-mining venture, and then have the whole "investment" transferred loss free to the MoF. The MoF now refuses to answer truthfully to Parliamentary questions about the current market value of this RM4 by tendering OSA rights.

Otherwise, Najib would not have fired 1MDB's two previous auditors for asking questions about 1MDB's dodgy investments and refusing to sign off with a clean audit report.

Otherwise, Najib would not have illegally sacked the AG who was on the verge of indicting him for fraud, misappropriation, money-laundering, breach of fiduciary duty and abuse of power.

Otherwise, Najib would not have shut down a Task Force investigating him by ordering the IGP to arrest officers from BNM, MACC and the AG's office, and transferring some to other government departments.

Otherwise Najib would not have illegally ordered his yes-man, new AG Pandi, to Unconstitutionally classify the Auditor General's Report on 1MDB under the OSA.

Otherwise, without Najib's instructions, the two top directors who illegally transferred RM42 million to Najib's personal bank account from public funds, would not have been able to flee to Indonesia to escape prosecution. Najib then used this money to pay for his and his wife Rosmah's personal expenses running into millions of ringgit, and suspicious multi-million ringgit disbursements to a named Deputy Minister and a BUMNO chief, and to several unnamed BUMNO chiefs and party members.

Otherwise, 1MDB's audited accounts for the year ended 31 March 2015 would not be delayed now for 17 months, while its 3rd auditor issued a strange statement that the public could not rely on its audited accounts for 2013 and 2014. There is a RM30 billion hole in 1MDB's balance sheet represented by "units" and unheard of asset descriptions alien to the financial world. These assets are likely to be worth nothing, having been fraudulently siphoned out by Najib and his corps of robbers in 1MDB and MoF, and his government of thieves.

Otherwise.......(please feel free to fill in the blanks).

Also, RM2 billion of RM2.6 billion transferred to Najib's personal bank account was transferred back to its original source, which the WSJ has revealed to be an off-shore company (Tanore) owned by an Arab individual linked to a 1MDB joint-venture partner. 

This blows to smithereens Najib's disgraceful, shameless, outrageous and blatant lie that the RN2.6 billion was a donation from an Arab Royalty and/or the Saudi government. When that criminal AG Pandi cleared Najib of corruption, he did not utter a word about how and for what purposes Najib used the difference of RM600 million; how much of it went into Najib, Rosmah and their family's pockets, BUMNO's bank accounts and how much to bribe politicians and rig by-elections and the 2013 GE!

Let's face it - in the history of the world, no government or individual, has ever donated RM2.6 billion or its equivalent to the personal bank account of the leader of a nation. It willl never happen in the future either. Certainly not for being a "moderate" Islamic nation which Najib claimed had opposed and fought ISIS, which Malaysia never did since ISIS came into existence only after the RM2.6 billion arrived in Najib's bank account between 2012-2013!

Let's also face it - all this was done with the connivance of BNM. At least one blogger has revealed, without being sued for slander and defamation, that Yeti of BNM in fact knew and advised Najib about the RM2.6 billion bank transfer in and RM2 billion bank transfer out of the country. This explains why, some two years after these events, Yeti was unable to give a straight answer to Australia Broadcasting Corporation's (ABC) questions when asked why BNM had refused to meet AMMB officers who came ready with files and documents about massive cash movements in and out of Najib's and Rosmah's bank accounts. This also explains why BNM has refused to disclose to the public how much 1MDB was recently fined for criminally misleading BNM about the movement of RM2.1 billion overseas. 

Do also remember, Najib has not sued Asia Sentinel for its article suggesting that he is linked to, not one, not two, but THREE murders! CLICK HERE. Neither has he sued the WSJ, as threatened by him and his incompetent lawyers, for exposing the corruption trail from 1MDB to Najib.

Najib has been cornered but refuses to resign gracefully, no doubt floating in false optimism and support given by the very people who are as guilty as him of utter corruption, lack of moral fibre and integrity.

Have no doubt, the final fall of Najb and his government of thieves is just around the corner. When it comes, out will go too BUMNO and all its corrupt, racist and bigoted sycophants who have been criminally sucking our blood while fingering the prayer beads and comforting themselves that they only fear God and His judgement. 

Funny, that's also what all those Japanese and German generals were saying at the War Crimes Trials after World War II, shortly before some committed suicide, faced the firing squad or were hung by their necks till they died of  broken necks or asphyxiation!!

On the anniversary of Anwar Ibrahim's term in prison for that scandalous decision by the Courts of Appeal and the Federal Court in confirming the reversal of his acquittal at the High Court for allegedly engaging in consensual acts against the order of nature with Saiful, Mahathir and Najib look guiltier than ever!

Little wonder Mahathir is parodied as 'Maha Thiruden' (Tamil for 'Great Robber') and Najib as 'Serially Lying and Defrauding Prime Minister'.


1. When charged, Anwar gave the High Court the perfect alibi. The construction of the Bangsar condo in which the accuser Azizan Abu Bakar had alleged that sexual trysts took place, was not completed and certified fit for occupation until two years later!! 

Crooked Attorney General Mohtar then confiscated all of Anwar's diaries. When he found a gap there, he "persuaded" Azizan to "remember" a new date for the charge. Instead of throwing the case out, Judge Augustine Paul incredibly allowed partner-in-crime Mohtar to amend the charges to 'some day 1993'. What a Mahathir conspiratorial ally Paul turned out to be! 

This case should not have proceeded beyond this stage as it was clear Azizan was lying through his eyeteeth, and was being manipulated by conspirators, no doubt for huge monetary gains.

2. AG Mohtar Abdullah had at first "advised" Anwar to make a police report over the publication of '50 Reasons Why Anwar Cannot Become the Prime Minister". Instead of investigating the scurrilous book and its author, Mohtar charged Anwar with Sodomy! With a friend like that, who needed an enemy? Mohtar never woke up from a coma after a stroke in 2003.

3. Mahathir gave press conferences alleging that all kinds of sexual trysts and depraved acts had taken place. There were rumors of "secret tape recordings by the Special Branch in London hotels". To-date, after 17 years, not a single peep, video or photo has emerged.

4. Mahathir personally met several persons who alleged sodomy, secretly. This included the accuser Azizan Abu Bakar (Anwar's wife's chauffeur) and his backers like Ummi Hafilda, before Anwar was arrested and charged. Why did these people go to Mahathir and not the IGP? Why this Arabian Nights type of charades if it was all kosher?

5. At first, Azizan Abu Bakar could not even recall when the alleged incidents took place. He had told no one about it or made a police report until 1998, when Mahathir stepped in.

6. Following Azizan's accusation, Anwar's adopted brother Sukma, and his ex-speech writer Munawar, a US citizen, were both convicted of engaging in homosexual acts with Anwar, after they had "confessed voluntarily" to the gentle probings of our totally neutral police. At his trial, Munawar appeared so spaced out, disoriented and sick that the judge had to ask him if he needed medical assistance. He was represented in court by ex-policemen who had been called to the Bar.

7. Even before Anwar was asked to answer the charges against him, Paul ruled that Anwar could not pursue the defence of conspiracy. This was the first of his many "irrelevant" rulings!

8. DPP Gani Patail then produced that infamous 'Anwar's semen stained mattress' that had been stored in the open at a police station, as evidence. Firstly, it appeared from a map of the alleged semen stains, that sexual acts had taken place in cockscrew fashion all over the mattress! Secondly, even after some 5-7 years, the Chemistry Department claimed the semen stains were fresh and matched Anwar's DNA??!! Someone had manufactured evidence out of thin air!

9. Azizan was charged and convicted of sodomy earlier, but received no prison sentence or caning!

10. Azizan Abu Bakar did not produce a single witness to corroborate his accusation.

11. Azizan Abu Bakar could not name a single hotel at which the alleged crime had taken place, although he claimed it had happened several times in several hotels!

12. Judge Augustine Paul refused to allow the defence to call Mahathir as a witness. If all the allegations were true, and after all it was Mahathir who engineered the entire prosecution, why was Mahathir afraid to come to court, if he was championing the truth? Why did he slink away in gutless fashion like a craven coward?

13. Half-way through the trial, AG Mohtar and DPP Gani Patail realized their DNA evidence and case were in tatters. They filed a motion to amend the sodomy charges to abuse of power and corruption. It had only then dawned on these two geniuses that with only the testimony of one man's words against another, and the passage of time, it was impossible to prove a charge of consensual or non-consensual sex (rape) between accuser Azizan and Anwar!

14. Incredibly again, Judge Augustine Paul allowed the amendment, instead of throwing the case out the nearest window. More than that, Paul, after allowing Anwar's good name to be smeared all over the world, ordered all testimony of sodomy and evidence to be "expunged" from the court records!

15. Anwar was eventually convicted of corruption and abuse of power on the uncorroborated evidence of a single Special Branch officer who testified that Anwar had ordered to him to force witnesses to retract their statements to the police. Some years later, that same officer alleged Mahathir had ordered him to stop investigating a Bank Negara Malaysia Governor in whose desk was found $1 million unaccounted for cash!

16. When the Federal Court over-turned Anwar's conviction in 2004, one of the judges scurrilously wrote that he was convinced homosexual had taken place even though he conceded that Azizan Abu Bakar was an inveterate liar! This was done to protect Mahathir who could still continue to claim that he was justified in his conspiratorial conduct. But really, what place has a judge's personal opinion in a Federal Court judgement, other than spite, intention to smear and covering-up for Mahathir's despicable and vindictive conspiracy.

17. After the trial, Azizan Abu Bakar had started a fashion boutique business. Where Azizan would have had the wealth to go into business on his savings as a driver, is anybody's guess. Half-way through the trial, Azizan was arrested for committing khalwat in September 1999. So much for Azizan's solid credentials and 'higher moral ground' that Augustine Paul, the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court had relied upon and championed.

18. What would have been Azizan's motive for lying? Well, he was sacked from his driver's job, and despite his pleadings, not reinstated. Throughout history, revenge and money have always been powerful reasons for one man to bring down another!

19. What happened to the charges by former by ex-KL CID Chief Mat Zain that DPP Gani Patail and doctors had falsified medical reports? CLICK HERE.

This entire saga was Mahathir's attempt to distract Malaysians from asking for his head for being the primary cause of the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis which wiped out many Malay and Bumiputra businesses and companies to the tune of tens of billions of ringgit.

This included Mahathir's son's public listed company, Perkapalan, which was bailed out by Petronas for $1.7 billion on Mahathir's orders. When Anwar, then Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, objected to government bail out of Mahathir's nepotistic and cronies' businesses, Mahathir struck back with poison and vengeance.

Mahathir also blamed George Soros for short selling the Malaysian Ringgit, causing it to plunge to more than RM4 against the US dollar. He had lashed out at international currency traders as "rogues".

However, in the 80's Mahathir himself had secretly directed Malaysia's federal reserve bank, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), to gamble against the US dollar, resulting in trading losses of more than RM30 billion. Mahathir was found out when the Opposition queried a huge hole in BNM's balance sheet. Mahathir lied in Parliament that the losses amounted to only RM6 billion, and sacked BNM Governor Jaafar Awang. In fact, he had approved BNM cooking the books to hide losses of more than RM30 billion, by re-valuing gold and other reserves upwards, and masking the real size of the massive losses.

So, Mahathir demonising Soros and "rogue" currency traders was aimed at deflecting blame from his own economic planning failures. Do not forget that Mahathir also lost the nation some $2 billion when trying to corner the tin market in the 'Maminco' fiasco. When it suited him, the international currency and futures markets were fair game for anyone with capital, but when he lost gambling big with Taxpayers' hard earned money, it was all an IMF/Zionist/Jewish/Soros plot to topple obscure Malaysia!

The BNM trader mainly responsible for those losses and who was asked to leave BNM, Nor Mohamad Yakcop, has miraculously found his way back in government. Appointed Finance Minister II from 2004-2009, he is now Head of the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) with the rank of Minister in the Prime Minister's Office. Only in Malaysia! The EPU is often referred to as the Economic Plundering Unit!!


1. The appeal against Anwar's acquittal at the High Court was filed almost on the last day before the deadline expired. AG Gani Patail was reluctant to appeal. However, Najib and BUMNO hardliners pressured him to file the appeal to the Court of Appeal which promptly reversed the High Court decision!

2. As with Sodomy1 and Azizan Abu Bakar, Saiful's accusation of sodomy on 28 June 2008, was uncorroborated. He did not produce a single witness to support his allegations. Once again, it was a case of one man's words against another, backed by iffy DNA evidence and a posse of government doctors prepared to slant their testimony to save their jobs, despite the lack of evidence of penetrative sex. 

3. Najib first lied that he knew of no one named Saiful. When a photo was published of Saiful posing outside Najib's office with his aide Khairil Anas Yusof, Najib did a u-turn and said Saiful had asked for help with a scholarship and had met his aide.

4. Later, more news emerged of a meeting between Saiful and Najib, at Najib's home, two days before the alleged sexual act took place. Present at that meeting were also Khairil and lawyer Shafee (whom AG Gani Patail later appointed as outside counsel to handle the government's case at the Court of Appeal, and now rumored to be in line for the AG's jon). Then, Najib had telephone IGP Musa and later Saiful himself called Musa who set up a meeting between Saiful and SRC Rodwan at the Melia Hotel. This was all confirmed by Saiful under oath in court! 

Apparently, Najib only advised Saiful to make a police report.


5. Prior to that meeting, Saiful had secretly met up with Khairil, his uncle 'Pet', Mumtaz Jaafar (who was a Director of the National Athletes' Foundation where Najib's wife Rosmah was the Chairman) AND Anwar's ex-right hand man who had defected to UMNO, Senator Mohamed Ezam Nor!!

6. On the day of the alleged incident having taken place at a condo owned by Anwar's friend, Saiful made every effort to make sure his image would be captured on CCTV cameras there. However, they were no recordings whatsoever of Saiful entering that particular condo.

7. Although AG Gani Patail had filed charges of consensual sex against the order of nature, Saiful had claimed under oath that it was non-consensual and that it had happened 7 or 8 times. Raped 7 or 8 seven times in various locations including in overseas hotel rooms??!! He kept going back for more punishment when he could have resigned his job with Anwar? He never put up a fight against someone about 40-years older than him and who was known internationally to be a chronic back-ache sufferer? No witnesses, no one heard screams or protests? Why did he not file a police report earlier!

8. When there was a blatant contradiction between the 'consensual' charge and Saiful's claim under oath of of rape, Judge Yusof Zainal Abden still refused to throw out the case. 

9. If it was non-consensual, why did Saiful go to the condo with a tube of KY jelly in his pocket? Saiful only brought up the issue of KY jelly when testifying on the stand, but had made no mention of it to doctors or in his police report. This was another obvious lie by Saiful, as government chemists found no evidence of KY jelly on the bed or carpets in the condo, on his underwear or in his body!

10. A Burmese doctor at the Pusrawi Hospital, where Saiful had gone to complain of a stomach pain, had written a report that Saiful had told him that a VIP had inserted a plastic object into his anus. Saiful denied this on the stand, but that report has been published. There was no reason for an experienced and totally unconnected GP to mislead anyone. So, why did Saiful deny it? The Burmese doctor also found no evidence of forced or other penetration, no blood-stains, semen or torn clothes/underwear when examining Saiful. (Look at picture above). The DPP did not call the Burmese doctor to testify!!!! 

If there was no penetration, how could any semen have been found deep inside Saiful's body, unless he planted it there himself or with the aid of an accomplice with ulterior motives (See 14 & 15 below)? Which is where a plastic dildo might have come into play!!

11. Saiful also claimed that he had not gone to the toilet or washed himself for 3 days, when questioned about the pristine condition of DNA samples extracted from his body. Does this sound credible to anyone? This is the stuff of babies in the womb choking themselves laughing!

12. Testimony was introduced showing that the day after the alleged incident, Saiful had been seen at Anwar's house, none the worse for wear!

13. Saiful had testified that although he had campaigned for UMNO, he had voted for Anwar and the Opposition!! This dove-tails with another of his claims that Anwar had bought "expensive" designer jeans for him. However, when checked, the jeans in question was found with the labels snipped off, and appeared to be a fake, of the kind sold in Petaling Street. Saiful's claims were convenient, worthless and desperate statements that could not be proved!

14. Despite objections from the Chemistry Department Head, Inspector Jude Pereira had removed DNA samples stored in their freezer and kept it in his desk drawer at Brickfields Police Station. When questioned how he could have been sure about the temperature in those desk drawers at his air-conditioned office to ensure no degradation of the DNA samples, Jude gave his now infamous and scurrilous reply - "I stuck my hands in the drawers and it felt okay"??!!

15. Inspector Jude claimed he only wanted to re-label the samples for clarity, yet after 96 hours outside SOP rules of storage, doctors and chemists swore the DNA samples were pristine, which was a statistical impossibility! Why re-label in secrecy? Why could Inspector Jude not have re-labelled the samples at the Chemistry Department in the presence of its Head and other officers? It's obvious Jude was up to no good, yet the Federal Court dismissed this most crucial evidence that there was a conspiracy to frame Anwar! 

At the High Court, Judge Zainal Abiden, in freeing Anwar, had been convinced that Jude had compromised the chain and nature of the DNA samples. He was the only judge who could have noted Jude's demeanour, body language and the guilty look on his face when pounded by defence lawyers. Yet, the judges at the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court, which included Chief Justice Arifin, refused to concur with Abiden's logical evaluation and judgement. 

16. The High Court judge refused to allow the defence access to Saiful's cautioned statement to the police, other legal documents and the prosecutions list of witnesses!

17. The DNA evidence extracted from Saiful's body suggested the strong possibility that Saiful had sex with other men. This made nonsense of Saiful's claim that he was straight as an arrow. The prosecution glossed over this by claiming the samples could have been contaminated by male doctors. It prompted Anwar's lawyer Ram Karpa singh to remark:

"It seems half a football team's DNA was found on Saiful, but you chose not to report it"! CLICK HERE. The Chemistry Department's DNA specialist, Dr. Seah Lay Hong, refused to respond!

18. In March 2013, Saiful's father, Azlan Mohamad Lazim, held a press conference where he announced that the persecution of Anwar on sodomy charges was an evil political conspiracy planned in Najib's office. Quote: "Even the script I read out to the press after Anwar's acquittal at the High Court was prepared by Najib's officers". CLICK HERE.

Saiful was obviously planted in Anwar's office by Najib and his co-conspirators to try and incriminate Anwar any way they could - innuendos, half-truths and plain lies.

This conspiracy could not in any way have involved ex-PM Badawi. How could it, when it was Badawi and his son-in-law KJ who made sure Anwar's Sodomy1 unjust conviction was squashed in 2004?
