ABIM sent Memo to UN through MOFA Malaysia (Wisma Putra)

April 9, 2013

Memo Myanmar ke Wisma Putra

MEMORANDUM : Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM) to United Nations was sent again to Wisma Putra or MOFA Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia.

I hereby attached the picture of their discussion and hand over memo to Foreign Ministry specifically to Mr Khairi Omar Undersecretary Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam & Oceania Division.

They are trying to pressure Malaysia NOT to repeat the same mistake at UN like this.

Why did Malaysia, Brunei and many Muslim countries vote against this UNGA resolution?

The “V Sign

The age-old ‘V sign’ comes in two formats: one with the palm faced outwards, and one with the palm inwards. In America the two hand signals mean the same thing – ‘victory’, as popularised by Richard Nixon, or ‘peace and love’, which seemed to become the primary meaning after anti-Vietnam protesters used it during the 60s.

Even in great democracies like USA had misused the Draft Act. Cassius Clay joined the Nation of Islam in 1964, changed name to Muhammad Ali. He refused to be conscripted into the U.S. military, based on his religious beliefs and opposition to the Vietnam War. He was arrested and found guilty on draft evasion charges, stripped of his boxing title, and his boxing license was suspended. In our country, extortions to get bribery will become rampant.
