PROTECTING THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE JUDICIARY
WRITTEN BY: DR CHANDRA MUZAFFAR
18 MARCH 2014

It is understandable why the Chief Justice of Malaysia, Tun Arifin Zakaria, has, at this juncture, reiterated his commitment to the independence of the Judiciary. Within certain circles a negative perception of the institution has become more pronounced than before, partly because of the recent conviction of a couple of politicians.

If we traced this perception to its root, a certain episode in the eighties --- the Salleh Abas episode --- would be part of the reason why it had emerged in the first instance, compounded by the questionable decisions and actions of some senior judges in the past. But in recent years it is the intensity of inter-party political competition that has impacted adversely upon the Judiciary. Sweeping generalisations are made about the integrity of the institution and its standard-bearers based on whether a decision is in the interest of one party or the other. When a decision is favourable to one side, the Judge concerned and the Judiciary are lauded by the winner and his supporters; if the decision is unfavourable to him, he and his acolytes condemn the Judge or Judges involved and the entire Judiciary in the vilest language conceivable.

 
 
 

 

THE PASSING AWAY OF YB KARPAL SINGH
 
The family of the late YB Karpal Singh.

Dear Mrs. Karpal and children,

I am deeply saddened by the tragic demise of YB Karpal Singh. 

I had known Karpal from the seventies. We shared a number of common concerns and causes in the eighties. We were both detained at the same time under the ISA in October 1987.  

When I was in politics from 1999 to 2001 we worked together for a common goal.

I shall always remember with gratitude Karpal's defence of me in a contempt of court trial in 2000. I was acquitted. Karpal provided his service gratis.

Following his car accident in 2005 which left him paralysed, my wife and I visited him at the University of Malaya Hospital where he was undergoing treatment. 

There was no interaction between us after that. The only time I "heard" from him was a few days before the 2008 General Election when he used a derogatory term in Malay to attack me for my criticism of Anwar Ibrahim.I did not respond.

Though on matters pertaining to ethnic relations and national integration, our views were diametrically different, I appreciate Karpal's courageous stand on certain issues pertaining to governance and the rule of law.   

My deepest condolences to you, his devoted family.

May God grant you the spiritual strength and fortitude to bear the burden of your immense loss.

In sadness,

Chandra Muzaffar    
 
MH370: MULTI-ETHNIC, MULTI-NATIONAL BONDING IN THE FACE OF TRAGEDY
WRITTEN BY: DR CHANDRA MUZAFFAR
10 MAC 2014

The MH 370 tragedy has brought Malaysians of all ethnic backgrounds together in sadness --- and in anxiety. Though the feelings generated by tragedies of this kind are often ephemeral, they have an impact upon the soul of the nation.

MH 370 is part of our collective consciousness today. It will be etched forever on our collective memory. 

The 38 Malaysian passengers on board MH 370 come from different religious and cultural communities. The rest of the passengers are of different nationalities, a majority of whom are from China. 

 The 12 member Malaysian crew of MH 370 is also truly multi-ethnic.
