Anwar: Kita berada di sebelah yang benar dalam sejarah!

Meskipun mengalami penderitaan lantaran hukuman penjara yang dilaluinya pada tahun 1998, namun Anwar Ibrahim tetap bersyukur kerana dirinya masih hidup (survive) setelah mengharungi pengalaman tersebut. Berdepan dengan keputusan kes liwat 2 yang bakal diumumkan mahkamah tinggi pada 9 Januari 2012, beliau dengan yakin berkata, "We are on the right side of the history!"

Dalam ucapan lebih daripada sejam itu, Anwar Ibrahim lebih menekankan isu kebangkitan mahasiswa, mengimbas pengalaman dirinya ketika menyandang jawatan Menteri Kewangan dalam kerajaan, mengkritik sistem negara yang semakin bobrok di depan mata. Beliau hanya menyentuh tentang 9 Januari ketika menyimpul ucapannya, bagaimanapun menegaskan bahawa adalah lebih penting untuk rakyat menumbangkan kerajaan Barisan Nasional dalam PRU akan datang.

Anwar Ibrahim, 65, berucap di depan lebih 2,500 orang di dalam dan di luar Dewan Gasing Indah, Lembah Pantai semalam, menyatakan keyakinan dirinya bahawa masyarakat yang berbilang kaum di Malaysia ini mampu mencipta sejarah untuk menjatuhkan kerajaan yang korup dalam PRU 13. Malah, kumpulan-kumpulan seperti PERKASA bakal difailkan ke dalam muzium sejarah Malaysia selepas itu.

Jangan hanya cakap pasal penderitaan

Anwar pernah dipenjarakan selama enam tahun, sebelum dibebaskan pada 2 September 2004. Ketua Umum Parti Keadilan ini berkongsi hikmah di sebalik itu, mendakwa bahawa pengalaman yang dilaluinya menjadikan dirinya lebih matang ketika membincangkan soal kaum. Malah beliau berkongsi nasihat Tok Guru kepadanya, jangan hanya lihat kepada penderitaan, tetapi pengalaman tersebut menjadikan dirinya lebih sedar masalah rakyat sebagai seorang pemimpin.


Anwar berkata, dirinya pernah berucap di dalam masjid, mengambil contoh seorang anak Cina miskin bernama Swee Lin yang memperolehi 12 A tetapi tidak diberi biasiswa. Beliau berucap di depan umat Islam, bahawa Swee Lim perlu diangkat sebagai anak kita. "Kita Melayu, kita pertahankan hak Melayu, kita mengangkat martabat Islam, tapi kita mesti adil," katanya. Beliau berkata, orang boleh mempertikaikan bahawa dirinya membuat retorik politik, tetapi pengalaman enam tahun dalam penjara, membuatkan dirinya berkata dari dasar hatinya.

Anwar memulakan ucapannya dengan kebangkitan mahasiswa, yang seharusnya berperanan sebagai suara hati masyarakat. Dengan nada sinis, beliau menyindir bagaimana sesetengah siswa sekarang mencium tangan menteri korup yang menindas rakyat.

Kemudian beliau mengisahkan pengalamannya ketika menyandang jawatan Menteri Kewangan, berpeluang ke Kampung Kerinchi yang perjalanannya 10 minit dari pejabatnya di Jalan Duta, melihat sendiri betapa miskin dan robeknya keadaan di sana, tatkala dipuji dengan angka pertumbuhan ekonomi yang besar dan megah.

Beliau mendakwa dirinya cuba untuk memperbaiki keadaan, mengumpul dana dari bank untuk melancarkan Projek Perumahan Rakyat Termiskin. Beliau menyindir bahawa menteri sekarang tidak lagi berwibawa untuk berbuat demikian, kerana disogok oleh orang kaya. Anwar kemudiannya mengkritik bagaimana kroni UMNO mengaut keuntungan dengan perjanjian konsesi yang tidak adil, dan berakhir dengan rakyat yang menanggung beban tersebut.

Malah, mengambil contoh bagaimana seorang wanita dari keluarga miskin dihukum kerana meminum arak, tetapi Menteri yang menyalahgunakan wang zakat dipertahankan, Anwar berkata dirinya tidak menggalakkan orang minum arak, tetapi menganggap sistem ini tidak adil apabila mereka yang miskin dihukum, pada masa yang sama, orang yang kaya dan berkuasa dibiarkan bermaharajalela.

Beliau mengulangi tiga kemungkinan yang dihadapinya pada 9 Januari, pertama, tidak bersalah dan dibebaskan, kedua, dihukum tetapi diikat jamin dan ketiga, dipenjarakan terus. Beliau mendakwa dirinya tidak terusik dengan keputusan 9 Januari, menekankan bahawa beliau akan teruskan usahanya, malah menyeru rakyat bersamanya untuk menjatuhkan kerajaan yang korup dalam pilihan raya umum yang akan datang.

Turut hadir memberi ucapan termasuk bekas pensyarah Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia, Abdul Aziz Bari, aktivis sosial Hishamuddin Rais, Setiausaha Menteri Besar Selangor Faekah Husin, selain ahli parlimen Lembah Pantai merangkap Naib Presiden PKR Nurul Izzah Anwar.

Lalang Pun Tahu Mintak MAAF

Zaid Ibrahim apologises to Anwar on eve of 901

Having left PKR in a huff in 2009, Kita president Zaid Ibrahim has chosen the eve of the sodomy trial verdict to offer his apologies to PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.

"Anwar, I have said some harsh things about you. I am sorry.

"Politics sometimes brings the worst in us. I hope you will be fairly treated," he said on Twitter today.

In response, Anwar tweeted, "Thank you and continue to support the reform agenda."

Last year, Zaid had attacked Anwar scathingly at the height of a heated fight against Azmin Ali for PKR deputy presidency.

The acrimony eventually led to Zaid leaving the party to form Kita.

Zaid’s apparent change of heart was already evident last Tuesday, when the former de facto law minister also defended Anwar against blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin’s damaging comments to New Straits Times.

In a posting on his blog, Zaid said he could not fathom why Raja Petra was "cannibalising" the opposition.

He added that while he may not agree with Anwar on many fronts, it was undeniable that PKR de facto leader had strengthened the opposition movement in Malaysia.

Anwar in turn said in an interview with Malaysiakini last week, that no one, including Zaid, should be "condemned for life".

The Anwar Verdict

A chance for Obama to speak up for the rule of law in a Muslim ally.

We have a stake not just in the stability of nations, but in the self-determination of individuals.” That was President Obama at the State Department last May, rolling out his own version of the freedom agenda for the Muslim world. So why has the Administration been virtually silent when it comes to one of the most notorious and long-running abuses of power taking place in the Muslim world today—this one in our good friend and ally, Malaysia?

The abuses in question concern Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who on Monday faces a verdict—and potentially years of jail time—on dubious sodomy charges. Mr. Anwar first went through this charade as a deputy prime minister in the late 1990s, when he fell out with then-Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad during the Asian financial crisis, was savagely beaten by police and ultimately sentenced to prison on sodomy and corruption charges.

Mr. Anwar spent six years in prison. In 2004 the sodomy charges were overturned by the country’s highest court—a year after Mr. Mahathir had left office. Yet Mr. Anwar was again served with sodomy charges four years later, after the ruling UMNO party had lost its two-thirds majority and the opposition seemed close to assembling a parliamentary majority.

The current case is even flimsier than the last one. It is based mainly on the word of one accuser who, as it so happened, had met with then-deputy prime minister, now Prime Minister, Najib Razak days before the alleged incident. Doctors at two hospitals could find no evidence of rape in the aftermath of the alleged incident. Nonetheless, political observers anticipate a guilty verdict.

This is happening in the context of growing discontent among Malaysians with UMNO’s ruling order, and Mr. Najib’s ambivalent attempts at political reform. But if that’s reminiscent of the unhappiness that presaged the Arab Spring, so too is the don’t-rock-the-boat attitude of the Obama Administration.

Malaysia is supposedly a moderate Muslim country and a useful regional counterweight to China, and the President was full of praise for Mr. Najib’s “great leadership” when they last met in November. As for Mr. Anwar, the State Department has publicly offered no more than boilerplate about his case. Perhaps quiet diplomacy is now at work on Mr. Anwar’s behalf, but that kind of diplomacy is fine only as long as it produces results.

In the meantime, Malaysian democracy could benefit from a sign that the U.S. is not indifferent to Mr. Anwar’s legal ordeal or to the political system that has allowed it to continue. U.S. interests could benefit as well. “Failure to speak to the broader aspirations of ordinary people will only feed the suspicion that has festered for years that the United States pursues our own interests at their expense,” said Mr. Obama in May. Mr. Anwar’s case gives the President a chance to show that he meant what he said.

Pesanan Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

Tanggal esok 9 Januari 2012 ini, penghakiman kes Fitnah Liwat II akan termaktub dalam sejarah, samada sebagai detik penentuan keadilan ditegakkan ataupun hari gelap buat kedaulatan undang-undang dan kepada mereka yang perjuangkan keadilan.

Saya menyeru seluruh rakyat Malaysia agar membulatkan tekad serta iltizam dalam menuntut pembaharuan politik. Mereka boleh mengaibkan saya, mereka boleh menghumban saya ke penjara, mereka boleh menginjak hak rakyat dan mereka boleh memukul kita hanya kerana berkumpul, akan tetapi mereka takkan dapat merampas kehormatan diri, maruah serta semangat kita untuk melakukan apa yang benar dan memperjuangkan apa yang kita percaya.

Mengulangi fitnah keji sejak dari 1998 lagi terhadap diri saya dan sepanjang sandiwara perbicaraan yang panjang ini, pelbagai fitnah dan tohmahan telah dilemparkan, namun ianya tidak menghakis keyakinan rakyat. Kita telah menyaksikan betapa polis, pihak pendakwaan dan kehakiman serta media yang dikawal UMNO berganding bahu memastikan agar kerajaan BN yang rasuah dan zalim ini terus berkuasa.

Walau apa pun jua penghakiman yang akan diputuskan nanti, ia harus tetap melonjakkan semangat dan keyakinan menuntut perubahan bagi menegakkan hukum, melaksanakan sistem ekonomi saksama dan memupuk semangat persaudaraan yang tulen. Usaha dan upaya mestilah digembeling demi membanteras kezaliman, rasuah dan penyalahgunaan kuasa. Pastikan pada Pilihanraya Umum ke 13 nanti, kebangkitan rakyat akan menghumban penguasa angkuh dari tampuk pemerintahan.

Mereka mungkin berhasrat memenjara dan merantai saya tetapi mereka takkan sesekali dapat memasung jiwa dan semangat saya. Di sini saya mengulangi ikrar bahawa saya tidak akan berhenti selagi kita belum berjaya melaksanakan Perubahan dan menghapuskan segala kebejatan yang dilakukan oleh kerajaan UMNO-BN dan membangunkan sebuah bangsa yang adil lagi saksama. Berbekalkan semangat perjuangan yang murni serta bertawakal kepada Allah, Inshaallah, perjuangan kita akan mencapai kejayaan.

Saya akan tetap bersama anda semua di hati dan jiwa saya dan bersama-samalah kita bina sebuah negara Malaysia yang baharu.

ANWAR IBRAHIM

=========
Come tomorrow, the 9th January 2011, the judgement of the Sodomy II case will go down in history as a defining moment or indeed a day of infamy in the fight for justice and a better Malaysia.
I call on my fellow Malaysians to remain firm and committed in their clamour for political reform. They can assassinate my character, trample on our rights, they can put us behind bars for speaking up and they can even beat us up just for being together but they can never take away our dignity and our spirit to do what is right and fight for what we believe in.

Beginning from the first heinous plot back in 1998, they then repeated this bare and scurrilous allegation against me three and half years ago and since then have launched relentless attacks on my character. Throughout this sham trial, the people have seen how the police, the prosecution and the judiciary and the UMNO controlled media are working together to secure the continuation of this corrupt BN government.

Whatever the judgement may be, let us renew our conviction to bring about change – to uphold the rule of law, to have a fair and equitable economic system and to foster a true spirit of brotherhood among all Malaysians. We must remain steadfast in our fight against corruption, abuse of power, oppression and tyranny.

Rest assured that in the coming 13th General Elections, the voice of the people will be heard and this corrupt and arrogant government will be toppled from their pedestals of power.

They can put me in a cage and chain me to the ground but they can never imprison my soul and my spirit. I make this solemn promise to you that I will not rest until we make right the wrongs committed by this corrupt government and bring about a just and equitable nation.

I will remain with you in heart and soul and together we will build a new Malaysia.

ANWAR IBRAHIM
