Consumerist: Minors Conversion – A Perversion Of Justice & Human Rights Cannot Be Allowed!

Consumerist: Minors Conversion – A Perversion Of Justice & Human Rights Cannot Be Allowed!

Clandestine unilateral conversions of minors hereinafter called ‘secret conversions’ cannot be ‘part and parcel’ of any civilized nation’s legal framework – more so – a member of the present United Nations!

No humane and civilized person (s) with any fraction of religiosity within them will facilitate what is an act that will smash to smithereens, break up and destroy legally constituted families in the name of religious conversion!

It basically deprives a partner to the marriage a basic fundamental right!

This to me and others a vile deed!

It is a very serious violation of human rights charters – an infringement of the moral, legal and constitutional rights of the non-Muslims in Peninsula Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak!
NONEThe proposed amendments to the Administration of Islamic Law (Federal Territories) on the conversion of minors is just what Catholic Bishop Paul Tan Chee Ing described – ‘a “flagrant violation of the equality of persons’ provisions of the federal constitution”.

The amendments, tabled in Parliament earlier this week, by dint of the use of the word ‘parent’ instead of ‘parents’, makes it legal for a father or a mother, or guardian, to convert children below the age of 18 to a religion of proprietary choice.

This is mala fide and this is unacceptable!

There is a right and there is a wrong!

This is wrong!

There are now protest and outcries from BN component groups and sympathizers and supporters of the present government!

Malaysians in Peninsula Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak are watching and expecting their representatives to act righteously!

Consumerist: Declare War On Criminals Police Urged To Address Malaysian Crime Upsurge!

Dato Jacob George

‘The Emergency Ordinance should never have been repealed last year by the Najib administration as part of a reform effort, resulting in the release of some 2,000 detainees without first an in-depth study and reasonable consultation with the Police top intelligentsia!’ – Dr Jacob George .

Consumerist: Declare War On Criminals Police Urged To Address Malaysian Crime Upsurge!

There is an upsurge in crime and no one feels safe anymore in Malaysia!

Women are the usual soft targets post ATM, Bank, Supermarket, Petrol station visits, followed by those patronizing eateries and driving popular brands of vehicles!

Malaysians can see a clear pattern emerging where these attacks are organized with precisions and timing!

It is a pattern of emerging organized crime!

If the comments posted on online media and mentioned at on the street polls are a benchmark – it is a damming black day for Police enforcement, its claims of professionalism, integrity and competence!

High Court judge V.T. Singham, who turned 65 and resigned today sending shock waves through the legal fraternity and whose damning judgment against the Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar and the force over the death of detainee A. Kugan three years ago is anything to go by it is the final nail on the coffin and confirms public fears!

While we can debate a quick fix solution by suggesting to either reinstate the Emergency (Public Order and Crime Prevention) Ordinance 1969 or the enactment of a similar law as an instrument for preventive detention similar to the EO, with a stringent check and balance system which cannot be abused, be formulated it is a little too little too late!

The Emergency Ordinance should never have been repealed last year by the Najib administration as part of a reform effort, resulting in the release of some 2,000 detainees without first an in-depth study! .

The present bad publicity and image battering that the Police are receiving is certainly not fair to the many dedicated and good police officials at all tiers – dedicated, sacrificial, honest, professional and competent!

But are they today often sidelined for promotion in favor of those who curry favors with politicians and top brass as seems to be the perception?

The other perception is this upsurge in crime is the direct result of politicking and the alleged redeployment of massive number of police officers to keep track of the opposition leaders which depletes the staff available for crime prevention and crime fighting?

But, rightly or wrongly, whatever the real reasons – two perceptions are in the mind of Malaysians:

1. Crime is on the upsurge where Malaysians are the collateral damage and victims and self policing is the benchmark
2. The Police are not doing enough to address the issue and the is a lack of professionalism and far too much interference from politicians in the daily decision making process of the force?

Rightly or wrong my dear friends at the top brass at Bukit Aman must address these perceptions speedily!

I have always advocated the need to introduce ‘encounter’ in Malaysia – in view of far too many violent crimes on our streets and it is time the element of fear be reintroduce to the criminal out there that he is not free or insulated from having serious harm come to him – the same he enforces on poor unsuspecting Malaysians day in and day out!

Consumerist: Breaking News! – Whose ‘Salim’ And What’s His Role In The 500 Mini-Markets That Threatens Malaysian Sundry Shop Operators?

Dato Jacob George

Consumerist: Breaking News! – Whose ‘Salim’ And What’s His Role In The 500 Mini-Markets That Threatens Malaysian Sundry Shop Operators?

Several weeks ago, this blog carried the news that a Foreign Hypermarket Conglomerate About to Kill Malaysian Papa & Mama Shops With Their Mini Market Venture Nationwide!

This was also brought up by me at the KPDNKK ministry meeting between consumer groups, NGOs and the newly minted minister and his deputy!

According to my intelligence assets on the ground a foreign owned hypermarket is about to set up mini markets throughout the country!

The model, drawings are all ready and so is the cash to finance the venture!

Their only problem was Jacob George knew about it!

Now our intelligence investigations also threw up various names and one among them, was one ‘Salim?”

Now who is this ‘Salim’ as this names keeps coming up aplenty in Selangor land deals, reverse takeovers, an attempt to take over chairmanship of a public listed company and of an alleged relationship with a former disgraced menteri besar of Selangor?

And what is his role in the foundation laying of this project which is a threat to all sundry schools in Malaysia?

As I stated, this particular foreign owned controls three other popular brand outlets in the country.

IF this is allowed by my ministry it will mean the end of all ‘Papa & Mama shops’ – the sundry shops as we know them!

I am aware there was a manipulation through a back door weakness in the guidelines!

This is a travesty of justice because only recently these small outlets were encouraged to adopt the TUKAR program where a loan of RM50,000 to RM70,000.00 was utilized to refurbish the outlets to give them a new outlook.

What I cannot understand and I hope the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism does come out with an answer why many hypermarkets are not following guidelines previously agreed upon that they cannot set up business in any floor space below 30,000 and be outside the 5km range between hypermarkets?

According to my intelligence assets on the ground again in both the Pavilion and at Hartamas, I am made to understand that the space taken falls below 30,000 sg ft?

IF this is indeed TRUE then someone is again sleeping on the job and should be sacked!

IF Malaysian brand of Papa & Mama shops is threatened we will have a major crisis on our hands and therefore the ministry (KPDNKK) must immediately warn hypermarkets especially this Hong Kong – South African mix that we will not approve nor tolerate any such opening!

Morally why should we allow foreign brands to manipulate our markets, take the profits out of the country and destroy our house brands?

Previously, I had already alerted my minister about this matter!

I told him that something stinks here and I am about to find out more and update him accordingly!

Consumerist: Gosh- RM 5.5 Billion KL Opera House Over 25 Acres In Brickfields? Whose Making The Commission Of RM550 Million?

Dato Jacob George

‘The greed here is just unthinkable if the allegations are indeed true! And just how much is enough for these individuals? Really?’ – Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: Gosh- RM 5.5 Billion KL Opera House Over 25 Acres In Brickfields? Whose Making The Commission Of RM550 Million?

I have been inundated and red flagged with feed backs from a wide cross section of  Malaysians from all walks petrified, horrified, flabbergasted, that there are ‘back door moves’ made to build a RM5.5 billion ringgit Opera House in a 25 acre plot in Brickfields fronting the great Klang River?

Basically a Sydney Opera House wannabee!

I understand IF the rumors are true – the alleged VVIP lady behind the move will make a cool RM550 million as commission?

Several years ago it was then alleged that the same VVIP had called the nation’s top medical elite about building a private child hospital which was to be a few hundred million?

The feed backs were alleged to be damming and the lead voice was one noted for his bullishness and no nonsense attitude.

The truth is we do not have the professionals to run such an hospital when there is another public hospital along the same specialty been mooted!

The brave professional rejected the mooted idea!

The idea reluctantly was shelved! But not without temper tantrums been thrown about!

Again I would dare say IF the allegations were true – the only individuals who would have gained would have been the crony contractors, the suck up politicians and hangers on, and the VVIP through commissions?

The greed here is just unthinkable! And just how much is enough for these individuals? Really?

I wonder who else knows about the KL Opera House thingy – perhaps, Malaysian opposition?

Consumerist: Haze Holds Malaysians And Tourists Captive And Anger Mounts At Incompetence!

‘IF you think you are doing a great job go tell it to the over 65% increase in respiratory ailments, those having breathing difficulties, individuals who are now captive in their own homes, students who cannot go to school, go out play, senior citizens who cannot go out walk by the lake side, or others suffering economic loss which they can ill afford at this time!’ – Dr Jacob George CASSA CHIEF

‘Thank you and may god bless you for having so much love for concern for all of us…infact i am also a captive in my own home n feel very sad for those who have to leave home n also concerned for all the outside animals inhaling this rotten air…’ Mercy Williams from Penang

‘Someone must initiate a major class action against these buggers!’ Danny WK

‘Truly and strongly said my dear Dato Jacob George..your words really strikes accurately on the nails..(pun intended for those politician and policymakers)..i am not good with words here but reading your posts, i admire your guts and love for mankind..god bless you for what you are doing for all of us’ – Nallinie Ravindran – Ipoh, Perak

Consumerist: Haze Holds Malaysians And Tourists Captive And Anger Mounts At Incompetence!

Several politicians and policymakers were aghast with me in the manner I seem to take the lead in this haze situation as they put it been ‘a prophet of doom’ hammering all and sundry!

They are upset I called them incompetent, stupid and irresponsible!

I would have used stronger words IF I had not recently had a conversion experience!

But, I will not defend myself – I will not defend myself for doing what is right, honorable, to be hands on, – and – from feedbacks from those on facebook and reading my blog at http://www.drjacobgeorge.com/ far more individuals, organizations, agencies and groups in and out of the country are happy with my work so I will not bother with those ashamed that they have been monitored and found to be wanting!

IF you think you are doing a great job go tell it to the over 65% increase in respiratory ailments, those having breathing difficulties, individuals who are now captive in their own homes, students who cannot go to school, go out play, senior citizens who cannot go out walk by the lake side, or others suffering economic loss which they can ill afford at this time!

Go tell it to tourists from the middle east prior to Ramadan who paid a bomb to come here but now upset and made captives in their hotel rooms and whose travel plans have all gone haywire!

Go tell it to others who had to cancel their bookings and hotel reservations and suffered loss and logistic nightmares!

Why target the messenger?

Get my drift!

Yesterday I also spoke to senior management of private and international schools and warned them not to upset consumers and me – they seem to have taken the clue, ‘seen the light’, ‘alleluia’ – and have now agreed to close!

Last night my team and I already had indications that we are in for a nightmare and truly as expected the Air Pollutant Index (API) in Port Klang hit hazardous level this morning with a reading of 487, while the air quality is “very unhealthy” all over the Klang Valley.

The API reading in Port Klang has worsened significantly after it breached 314 at 3pm yesterday.

The Department of Environment (DOE) reported at 7am that the air quality in Selangor – Banting (292), Shah Alam (289), Kuala Selangor (242) and Petaling Jaya (213) – has also degraded.

Perak also saw an API reading breaching the 300 mark, with Seri Manjung showing 288.

According to the API, a reading of 0-5 denotes good air quality; 51-100 (moderate); 101-200 (unhealthy); 201-300 (very unhealthy); above 301 (hazardous to human health).

So If you think I am going to be apologetic for my outburst you are sadly mistaken!
