Semua bertanggungjawab

seperti biasa, di malasyia, all but I bertanggungjawab.
kalau salah, semua org lain. kalau betul, semua diri sendiri.
kenapa menteri belia dan sukan tidak bertanggungjawab sama?

Semua bertanggungjawab

Oleh A. JAILANI ABDULLAH

KUALA LUMPUR – Menteri Belia dan Sukan Datuk Azalina Othman Said berkata, prestasi buruk skuad bola sepak negara dalam Piala Asia sepatutnya dipikul oleh semua pihak dalam Persatuan Bolasepak Malaysia (FAM) dan badan naungannya dan bukan hanya Tengku Abdullah yang meletak jawatan semalam.

Katanya, bukan Timbalan Presiden FAM itu sahaja yang seharusnya menanggung tanggungjawab terhadap kemalapan sukan bola sepak negara tetapi ia sepatutnya dipikul oleh semua pihak yang terlibat dengan badan yang menguruskan bola sepak.

“Adalah menyedihkan kerana begini akhirnya yang berlaku kerana bukan hanya Tengku Abdullah seorang yang bertanggungjawab terhadap jatuh bangun bola sepak negara dan kekalahan dalam Piala Asia. Ia adalah tanggungjawab bersama.

Kehilangan

“Kita kehilangan seorang pemimpin sukan yang berkebolehan tetapi saya percaya Tengku Abdullah telah membuat keputusan ini setelah berfikir semasak-masaknya.

“Saya harap penggerak bola sepak akan mendapat kesedaran dan melakukan sesuatu yang positif daripada keseluruhan episod duka ini,” kata Azalina.

Tengku Abdullah melepaskan kesemua jawatannya dalam FAM menerusi sepucuk surat semalam tanpa memberikan alasan.

Bagaimanapun Tengku Abdullah diketahui hampa dengan prestasi skuad negara yang menjadi budak belasahan dalam Piala Asia. Malaysia kalah 5-1 kepada China pada perlawanan pembukaan Kumpulan C Selasa lepas dan kelmarin kalah 5-0 kepada Uzbekistan.

Mengulas perkara yang sama, Ketua Pengarah Majlis Sukan Negara (MSN) Datuk Zolkples Embong berkata tindakan Tengku Abdullah itu tidak bermakna masalah bola sepak negara ini telah selesai.

“Kita kena tengok secara keseluruhan konsep pembangunan bola sepak kita... sehingga ke akar umbi. Walau siapapun yang mengisi tempat itu selepas ini perlu melihat kepada program pembangunan,” katanya.

“Tindakan Tengku Abdullah ini bukan jalan penyelesaian, tetapi saya tabik kepadanya kerana sanggup memikul tanggungjawab ini,” kata Zolkples.

Bekas Naib Presiden FAM, Datuk Paduka Basri Akil yang sering lantang mengkritik badan induk bola sepak negara itu, berkata: “Saya menghormati tindakan beliau... saya menganggapnya sebagai satu pengorbanan.

“Agak mengejutkan kerana tindakan ini dilakukan lebih cepat daripada keputusan awalnya sebelum ini yang mahu melepaskan jawatan pada kongres FAM tidak lama lagi.

“Tengku Abdullah telah berusaha dan berkorban selama 20 tahun pengorbanan untuk menaikkan martabat bola sepak Malaysia tetapi tidak tercapai dan sekarang telah memberi laluan kepada pihak lain.

“Saya harap akan timbul kesedaran terhadap keputusan Tengku Abdullah ini.”

Naib Presiden FAM, Datuk Raja Ahmad Zainuddin pula terkejut dengan keputusan Tengku Abdullah itu.

“Saya tak sangka tindakan ini akan berlaku dan kami (Ahli Majlis FAM) tidak diberitahu,” katanya.

Muslim sportswomen need not cover up (Reuters)


here in Bolehland... anything is permitted The only forbidden thing is when you go against the big G, regardless of merit. may Allah bless Malaysia...

11 July 2007

PUTRAJAYA - Malaysia’s sports minister, a Muslim woman with a martial-arts black-belt, likes to lead by example: she does not wear a headscarf and insists that Muslim sportswomen do not have to cover up either.

Azalina Othman Said, 43, believes women offer the best chance of glory for a modern Muslim nation hungry for sporting success — but in trying to encourage more girls to take up sports, she is quietly holding the line against conservative Islam.

Wearing a tracksuit-top and pants, Azalina told Reuters in an interview in her office on Tuesday that Muslim sportswomen were free here to dress just like their non-Muslim rivals, whether in the pool, on the diving board or in the gymnastics arena.

“It’s never become an issue in Malaysia,” she said, declaring that women of all ages should, and do, feel free in this country to “wear shorts and jump around”.

“I mean we have Muslim gymnasts wearing tights and it’s never crossed anyone’s mind about how athletes are dressed. I am quite thankful that the people of Malaysia are still open-minded.”

But in reality not all Malaysians are so open minded.

In February, the Islamist government of the northeast state of Kelantan barred men from watching or officiating at a women’s national sports competition — and even in the absence of men, many athletes chose to compete wearing headscarves.

Malaysia prides itself on being a moderate Muslim country and its national government presents itself as a bulwark against Islamic extremists, but Malaysian society is widely seen to be bending to the global forces of conservative Islam.

In a country where 20 years ago women tended not to wear headscarves, religious police now prowl nightclubs and have detained women for immodest dress. This month, they hauled a singer away from a club for exposing too much of her back.

Religious authorities have so far stayed outside the sporting arena, and Azalina remains confident that it will stay that way.

But she warns that this cannot be guaranteed if there is a change to Malaysia’s formula of multi-racial coalition government, where the Muslim majority share power with non-Muslim parties representing ethnic Chinese and ethnic Indians.

“The day they change the government, I doubt it,” she said, shaking her head.

Malaysia’s quest for glory

Muslims make up about 60 percent of the population, but Muslim women are a minority among the nation’s top athletes, finishing well behind Malaysia’s minority-ethnic Chinese athletes in the traditional Olympic sports.

At the Asian Games in Doha last year, women won five of Malaysia’s eight gold medals but only one of these was claimed by a Muslim, in the team event for 10-pin bowling.

Azalina, who is a member of Sisters in Islam, a group that lobbies for Muslim women’s rights, does not believe religious conservatism is behind the shortfall of Muslim women in sport.

Instead, she said, poverty among Muslims, and social apathy about sport in general, were largely to blame. Almost all Muslims in Malaysia are ethnic Malays, many of whom live scattered in poor, rural villages with few or no sporting facilities.

“Poverty is an issue,” Azalina said. “I believe there’s no issue of gender. It’s not an issue of religion.”

Malaysia has never won an Olympic gold medal and has not made the podium at an Olympic Games since Atlanta in 1996. After the Athens games in 2004, the government sprang into action and formed a cabinet committee to revive its elite sports.

The government pumped extra money into football, hockey, badminton, squash, ten-pin bowling, gymnastics, aquatics and athletics. It is also developing an elite sports centre in Britain, putting its athletes closer to top coaches and competitions.

But Azalina says the real challenge will be to get all Malaysians, not just Muslims, out of their living rooms and onto the playing fields, where she spent a lot of her own youth—a task she says could take 10 to 20 years to achieve.

“It’s not just about winning medals,” she said.

Gambar Najib bersama Altantuya: Malaysia akan diperintah pembohong?

Semakin hari, saya semakin yakin wujudnya konsert perdana. Lantaklah, saya tidak boleh buat apa-apa untuk menghentikannya. Nanti saya akan dituduh menghina konsert. Saya juga sudah boleh mengagak kesudahan konsert itu, sama seperti orang yang tersenyum kegembiraan dan melambai-lamai sana-sini. Dia sudah tahu lagu merdu apa yang akan dinyanyikan.

Sila layari www.englishsection.com untuk Laman Utama English Section atau www.harakahdaily.net/wap/ untuk melayari HarakahDaily.Net menggunakan telefon bimbit GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) anda.

Persoalannya, bagaimana susun atur konsert itu dibuat? Adakah semua watak telah diberi arahan apa yang perlu dibuat? Atau hanya watak utama sahaja yang memegang skrip persembahan? Adakah watak-watak yang lain boleh melalak sesuka hati?

Sambil itu teringat pula kenyataan Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak ketika bergasak dengan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim di Ijok dahulu. Najib berkata, "Saya hanya lihat gambarnya (Altantuya) yang disiarkan oleh akhbar."

Hanya lihat gambar yang disiarkan oleh akhbar (yang disiarkan oleh akhbar sahaja!) bermaksud tidak pernah berjumpa dan bersua muka. Jauh lagi bertegur sapa dan bermesra. Jangan pandai-pandai nak menuduh wujudnya urusniaga. Jauh lagi adegan asmara!

Tetapi hari ini, dalam berita Malaysiakini bertajuk Najib seen with Altantuya, seorang saksi bernama Burmaa Oyunchimeg memberitahu mahkamah Shah Alam:

Altantuya had shown her the photo when she returned from a trip to France.

It is believed that the government official in the photograph is Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who has close ties with political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda.

Siapa yang cakap benar? Najib atau Burmaa? Kalau Najib benar, Burmaa pembohong. Kalau Burmaa benar, Najib pembohong.

Jika benar Najib pembohong, adakah negara ini akan terus diperintah oleh pembohong demi pembohong?
