Fat Boy NEVER Slim

Brazil legend Ronaldo piles on the pounds and admits retirement is close

He's not even the most famous Ronaldo any more, but the famous Brazil No 9 and highest World Cup goalscorer of all time is still twice the player of his Real Madrid namesake.

Out of action for 100 days with a groin injury, the 33-year-old has once again ballooned in weight and raised questions about how much longer he has left in the game that was shaped by his genius over the last two decades.

Don't Link Islam to Malay RIGHTS

Salina Abdul Jalil, Shah Alam/LETTERS/HARAKAH

As a Muslim, I am tired of the now-regular statements coming from people like UMNO Youth and Perkasa decrying those they accused of questioning "Malay rights and status of Islam".

Pray, since when has preferential treatment of a race ever been linked to Islam?

These groups should do Muslims, including those Muslims who are not Malays and who believe in Islamic juctice, a big favour by not mentioning 'Malay rights' and 'Islam' in one breath.

Hang PERCAYA Harussani?

by Ahmad Lutfi Othman/HARAKAH

Mufti Perak, Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria memang terkenal dengan isu-isu kontroversi. Malangnya ada isu-isu yang dibawanya itu tidak lebih daripada "serkap jarang". Saya tidaklah sampai menuduh beliau sebagai pembawa berita palsu atau yang belum disahkan kerana ia tentulah tidak baik kepada imejnya sebagai seorang ulama terkemuka. Cuma banyak pihak terkilan dengan sikapnya, yang kadang-kadang dilihat boleh (atau bersedia) diperalat oleh golongan berkepentingan.

Memang ulama tidak wajar mengasingkan diri daripada politik, malah wajar mengungguli politik Islam, tetapi pendekatan Harussani begitu canggung sekali.
