Let the nons ‘mandi arak’ & Ridhuan Tee’s other Hulu S’gor shockers!

By Hartal MSM

“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)” – To Kill a Mockingbird
(quote lifted from a comment by Malaysian Insider reader ‘sylim’ in response to Dr Mohd Ridhuan Tee Abdullah’s most recent article.

In his Utusan column on Sunday (Apr 25) – coincidentally the Hulu Selangor by-election day itself – Ridhuan quite naturally wrote about the contest because he is after all as political as he is ‘religious’.

Excerpts, ‘Menguji kematangan pilihan raya’

1. Bezanya, di Barat mungkin mereka tidak berapa kisah jika pemimpin mereka minum arak atau rosak akhlaknya. Bagi yang penting adalah wibawa dan karisma, tetapi norma sebegini tidak dapat diterima oleh masyarakat kita apatah orang Islam. Kita mahukan pemimpin yang baik dalam semua aspek, fizikal dan spiritual atau jasmani dan rohani.

Ridhuan writes that in differently the West, they may not be too bothered if their leaders drink or have rotten morals, etc, etc, but these norms cannot be accepted by our society, much less Muslims.

2. Secara peribadi, saya dapat menerima ketelusan barat mengendalikan pilihan raya tetapi menolak calon yang rosak akhlaknya untuk bertanding dalam pilihan raya walaupun mereka berwibawa. Ini kerana, kebiasaannya tabiat merokok, minum arak, berjudi dan berzina mempunyai unsur-unsur ketagihan, kecuali mereka benar-benar telah ‘bertaubat’. Kadang kala sukar juga untuk mempercayai pengakuan ‘taubat’ seseorang manusia selagi manusia itu tidak beriman sepenuhnya kepada Allah SWT. Ibarat kata pepatah Melayu, anjing jika sudah biasa makan tahi, tak dapat makan, hidu pun jadi. Hendaknya biarlah kita benar-benar bertaubat. Janganlah hari bertaubat, esok berjahat kerana berhajat lebih hina daripada menjadi penjahat.

Ridhuan writes that sometimes it is difficult to believe that someone has really repented and cites a Malay proverb (literal translation): if a dog is used to smelling eating faeces, when it cannot get to eat faeces, even the smell of it will suffice. He admonishes, don’t repent today but desire to drink tomorrow.

3. Apapun, faktor peribadi dan latar belakang seseorang amat dititik beratkan oleh Islam apatah lagi jika ia hendak menjadi pemimpin kepada masyarakat. Pemimpin mesti menjadi role model. Mereka mesti kelihatan baik luar dan dalam. Sebaik-baiknya tidak melakukan dosa-dosa besar seperti berzina dan minum arak.

Ridhuan writes that leaders must be role models who ideally don’t womanize or drink.

4. Isu arak di negeri Selangor ini bukanlah isu baru. Kita telah dengar sebelum ini bagaimana parti ultra kiasu begitu marah kepada penguatkuasa bila mereka bertindak merampas arak yang dijual di kawasan majoriti Islam. Kita dapati parti ultra kiasu tidak dapat menerima hakikat ini. Mereka mengkritik hebat tindakan penguatkuasa dan serta merta mengeluarkan arahan supaya menghentikan tindakan tersebut. Sedangkan tujuannya adalah baik iaitu melarang orang Islam daripada minum arak. Kepada orang bukan Islam mereka boleh minum dan mandi arak, tidak siapa larang selagi tidak mengganggu ketenteraman awam.

Ridhuan writes that the ultra kiasu party were so angry when the authorities seized liquor being sold in Muslim majority areas, etc, etc. “For the non-Muslims they can drink and bathe in arak, nobody’s stopping them unless they disturb public order.”

5. Dalam konteks parlimen Hulu Selangor, kita sedia maklum bahawa kawasan ini mula membangun ketika Tan Sri Muhammad Taib menjadi menteri besar Selangor. Pada saya, jika pemilihan calon tidak berasaskan kuota parti, beliau adalah yang paling sesuai untuk bertanding di sana berbanding calon lain, sekiranya tidak ada kontroversi. Jasa beliau amat besar kepada penduduk Hulu Selangor. Saya tidaklah mengatakan bahawa Hulu Selangor masih penuh hutan tanpa beliau, tetapi itulah hakikatnya, biarlah kita berterus terang. Justeru, dalam pemilihan calon, kita perlu mencari calon yang menghampiri ketokohan Muhammad Taib, kerana tanpa beliau, Hulu Selangor mungkin masih hulu lagi.

The above paragraph praising Muhammad x2 Taib appears in Ridhuan’s blog posting, and can be read the same in the Malaysian Insider reproduction of it. However, it does not appear in the Utusan print version possibly due to space constraints in the newspaper as this week’s article is long and meandering.

6. Bandingkan perubahan kawasan tersebut sebelum ini dengan dua tahun lalu setelah kepimpinan bertukar tangan. Adakah terdapat perubahan yang ketara atau sekadar penerusan agenda pembangunan sebelum ini semata-mata?

Ridhuan asks his readers to compare the area now in the two years since the change of state government and whether there has been further development (bearing in mind the sterling performance of Muhammad x2 Taib as mentioned in note 5).

7. Kita perlu menilai adakah kepemimpinan dua tahun kebelakangan ini telah mengotakan janji-janji pilihan raya mereka atau cakap tidak serupa bikin.

He asks if the leadership of the past two years have kept their election promises. Read our earlier Hartal posting – Ridhuan Tee ‘campaigning’ for Umno.

8. Dalam sistem demokrasi, kemenangan pilihan raya tidak cukup, sekiranya tidak mendapat dua pertiga majoriti seperti berlaku pada hari ini. Akibatnya parlimen tidak dapat berfungsi dengan baik. Banyak perkara tertangguh disebabkan berlaku boikot-memboikot dalam sidang parlimen sehingga tidak menampakkan kematangan. Justeru, kemenangan dua per tiga adalah amat penting. Dalam mendapatkan kemenangan ini, calon yang berwibawa hendaklah diketengahkan berasaskan kehendak majoriti. Pada saya, jika kaum minoriti tidak mempunyai kawasan majoriti mereka, maka tidak perlu bertanding. Lebih elok kiranya wakil mereka dilantik sebagai senator daripada bertanding dalam pilihan raya. Itulah lebih membawa manfaat dalam menentukan kemenangan dua pertiga.

Kepada pengundi Hulu Selangor, selamat mengundi dan buatlah pilihan yang bijak. Masa depan Selangor berada di tangan anda. Saya pasti saudara semua boleh menilaikan antara kaca dengan permata.

The above paragraphs in Note 8 are contained in Ridhuan’s original copy (see his blog ridhuantee.blogspot.com/Insider) has but have also been edited out by Utusan.

Meaning to say, the Utusan editor and sub-editor have actually improved the readability of Ridhuan, who otherwise — without their reining him in — goes on even wilder rampages.

Telling voters that the future of Selangor is in their hands (our emphasis in bold above), Ridhuan wrote:

“To me, if the minorities are not the majority [in terms of numbers] in their areas, then it is best that they don’t contest the constituency. It’s better that their representatives be elected as senator than contest in elections. This will be more beneficial in determining a two-thirds majority win [so that with a strong ruling party, Parliament can function better].

It’s interesting that Utusan deleted Ridhuan’s endorsement of a two-third [Parliamentary] majority for you-know-who. Just as interesting is Ridhuan’s paranoid race quota formula, and now this – saying that the minority races needn’t contest for Parliament but should just be appointed to the Senate.

    The way this Tee fella writes is worse than a man who writes with a whisky bottle in the hand ! When did this fella became a Muslim ? He sounds as if he is the ‘purest’ Muslim around and therefore fit to stand for election !

  2. MICKI says:

    he is just a bloody FAKE

    Same-lah if one who has tasted pork before and cannot get to eat pork, the taste/’gian’ will suffice. Don’t repent today but desire to eat tomorrow.This I agree with ‘ Mr.Pig’-(Mr. Tee).It makes sense.

  4. Jin Mabuk says:

    Just wanna tell u Mr Tee, lu cakap tak serupa bikin,,, lu ingat akhlak lu baik sangat bila buek komen macam tu,,, akhlak lu sama macam haiwan yg melata di muka bumi TUHAN lu ni,,,,,,, apakah pemimpin islam umno yg lu sokong ni mempunyai akhlak yg terbaik pirahhhhhhhhh mereka juga seprti anjing yg makan tahi,, TERMASUK LAH LU,,,,, lu bercakap tak ubah seperti burung kakaktua ,, bercakap pandai tetapi tak tahu apa yg di percakapan kany nya,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Empty barrel ( Ridhuan Tee) makes the most noise….

  6. rosman says:

    Nothing wrong with this Riduan Tee(RT) the difference is the way he thinks, the value and principle that he has.If Muhammad pbuh has his kind of attitude and value most probably ISLAM is not going anywhere.He’s got the knowledge but bot sincere to ALLAH and DEEN. Do you think that prostitute likes to carry their job day in day out?Just to put a food on the table for the family.Sound like the same as RT.He knows the fact but he act like the ones because to feed his family.”Wahai ahli kitab, mengapa kamu mencampur-adukkan yg haq dan yg bathil dan menyembunyikan kebenaran, walhal kamu mengetahuinya” Surah Al-Imran Ayat 71.That the beauty of Quran until today we can see the relevance.This might shock him because RT don’t know anything about ISLAM but just want to championing for UMNO mold of ISLAM

  7. william says:

    This Tee Li Duan…he aspires to be a good and if not a perfect preacher..fact is ,he’s a shaman.He forgot we are mere mortals passing through this physical world..forgotten his roots;where he came from and worst of all,he’s forgotten what it takes to be a humble,sincere and to be an unspiteful person.Unlike now,all he is spewing is spite,hatred,venom and racial adjectives in his writings.Shame on him as a 3rd or 4th generation pendatang malaysian. May God have mercy on him.

  8. Riduahn Tee says:

    I absolutely agreed with RT’s points 1, 2,3, 4 and 7. But I wonder why he did not raise the issue of UMNO/MCA/MIC fellas drinking, womanising, killing,stealing, lying and robbing? When there are 2 devils and you have no choice, you choose the lesser devil. Simple.

    Wouldn’t an ex drinker be better than currently still killing, stealing, robbing, womanising, lying and drinking idiot.

    • kluman says:

      Riduahn dulu atau skrg tidak ada beza. Ur thinking seems to be one sided and myopic. who the hell in politics senario are clean all are liars. to bring in religion into politic u r hypocrite.

  9. wizsurf says:

    its strange why we waste time even commenting on the sick man’s articles. Do not touch the shit , just leave it until it dries up or gets swept away by Bandaraya or whatever.

  10. lizziewong says:

    What a revolting article!! Obviously bias with the intent to mislead… This is the problem with some religious people who go on and on about sins such as drinking, gambling or womanising. Sins like greed, deceit and corruption are nothing to them. While not wanting to dwell on racial lines, I also wonder, as a chinese by birth, how could he work so closely with the oppressive and racist umno… perhaps, now that he bears a ‘bin’ in his IC, he is happy with all the trappings of the NEP????

    In an account in the bible, the religious jews were appalled that Jesus’ disciples ate food without performing the ceremonial washing.. To this, Jesus replied, it is not what we eat or drink that defile us, but our attitude, our thoughts and desires that wld make us unrighteous….

  11. cold_eyed says:

    Let us just act as if he does not exist.I can assure you this is the heaviest blow that we can deal to him.

  12. telur dua says:

    Tee can go mandi Chlorox (bleach). That should get rid of the stench.

  13. JL says:

    Redhuan T appears to be intoxicated with his self righteousness, he is writing like a drunkard.

  14. fztt says:

    This guy can’t differentiate race and religion. To him, Muslim = Malay, Malay = Muslim, notice how confused he is talk religion but knock the race, his mother will be rolling in her grave, I wonder what he will say to God on judgment day?

  15. Sabahan says:

    Minorities need not contest? That’s okay for him to say as long as he agrees that Pattani Malays in Thailand, Tausugs in the Philippines, Muslims in India and Malays in Singapore should not contest for parliamentary seats. And ketokohan? Does he mean like the case that brought Muhammad Taib down? Is Muhammad Taib more righteous than Zaid? Obviously Tee was not in Sabah during the 1994 elections!

  16. Holiest men says:

    I m so proud that our country has the most number of holiest men in the world – Riduan,Zulklifi,Ibrahim,Ismail pendatang,Toyol,: Malaysia must be the chosen land really.Thank you our most holy of the holies.You make us proud

  17. mercury says:

    Every community has got its share of scumbags and traitors and Riduan Tee whose real name is Tee Chuan Seng before he converted to Islam more for selfish interests than belief in the religion is the PERFECT EXAMPLE of a Chinese scumbag and traitor, a real disgrace to this community, his parents and his ancestors. Riduan Tee shamelessly exceeds his limits in carrying the balls of UMNO, even to the point of making some of them condemn him as the biggest opportunist. Many are certain that Riduan is and won’t be surprized that privately he still consumes pork, alcohol and prays to his ancestors!

    Hmmm .. Mercury, your e-mail 12345@yahoo.com is fake.
    Rant if you wish but do not do so with malice in mind. Your last para can be considered slanderous if you’re not able to provide proof – Shar101.

  18. Carib says:

    A Muslim friend of mine told me once that corruption is rated more severe than alcohol consumption in Islam. Both is prohibited, just that corruption considered a higher sin than the other.

    Now, this guy Tee, seems to be expressing his reservations in the name of Islam agains the PKR candidate due to his past alcohol consumption, but seems to be endorsing Muhammad Taib as a better candidate.

    Isn’t Taib the guy who was caught in Australia with a bag full of money…. !!

    In the name of Islam……. first, please go clean the man in the mirror !!

  19. niakong says:

    Having spent so much time writing his thoughts so diligently, his published work is just but a nice piece of joke to the readers, yes even to die-hard Utusan readers.

    It’s just like reading the comic strips in a Sunday paper on a Sunday morning over a cup of warm coffee. How wonderful!

    Tee Chuan Seng, keep the good work up! Ha! Ha!!

  20. Viv says:

    This is Malaysia and not everyone has to follow the religion of Islam with so many restrictions. Tee, have you forgotten your roots and if Islam is so pure, then corruption won’t happen among the people… I’m ashamed tt you’re a Chinese.. Wut matters in a ruler is how well carrys the responsibility and trust tt were given to him and not wut he chooses to do in his life, that is between him and God. No one else has the right to judge, not even YOU..

  21. jetmia says:

    to those who are pure, everything is pure but otherwise is plain dung.

  22. CARROT AS ROD IN DISGUISE

    The carrot is actually a rod in disguise
    To be used when the needs actually arise
    So do not be so happy to know this surprise
    Unless you want to cause some temperatures to rise

    This Tee guy talks like he is very pure… The only Muslims I really respect are TGNK, and all my frens who are muslims, work hard just like the non-muslims, enjoy a drink or two.. just to unwind, and they help the poor..
    Not sure if this Tee fella, is preaching what he says, or is just all NATO… no action talk only

  24. Li Huat Chai says:

    ha ha ha, thks guys, i have had a good laugh while reading all of your comments.

    I, particularly, like bennyloh’s…

    By the way, mercury, you are v naughty ah with your last para… he he he

  25. NP says:

  27. Jayjay says:

  29. ted Ng says:

    Is this Tee Guy classified as Bumi and entitle to housing discount and whatever Saham and is allowed to join UMNO ?

    If so, why is repeated requests by Gepima (Indian-Muslim Malaysian) not approved?
    http://topnews.in/call-us-malays-and-not-indians-223862

    If NOT, why this Tee guy use ‘Kita’ when whacking the what he called the ultra-Kiasu?
    Is the Malay community accepted him as one of them like what they had accepted Mahathir?

    If it is true that the non-bumi can change their race to Bumi (even if only constituionally only), let’s start a movement to convert all the non-bumi to Bumi. Then every Malaysian equal, nobody or everybody have discount when purchase house, no more issue with ratio quota in civil service, University, scholarship, Army, Police, private sector…………. 1Malaysia
