MDP Quiz 2 Answer Reveal!

|

1. Nyquist Theorem or theorem of sampling says that if a signal to be imitate digitally correct than the sampling size should be 2 times the original signal.

2. Given an original signal with frequency in between 20Hz to 20 000Hz, the suitable sampling rate used to digitize the signal based on the theory of sampling is 40Hz to 40 000Hz.

3. Y is sampled at 15 000Hz
a) Play in between 0.2 to 2.0 seconds
wavplay(Y(0.2 x 15000 : 2.0 x 15 000), 15000)
wavplay(Y(3000 : 30000), 15000)

b) Sample in between 0.2 to 2.0
-> (2.0 – 0.2) x 15000 = 1.8 x 15000), 15000)
-> (2.0 x 15000) – (0.2 x 15000) = 30000 – 3000 = 27000

c) Playback effect
-> If the value of playback is lower than the signal for example 8000Hz the sound will be slower or lower pitch
-> If the value of playback is higher than the original signal for example 20 000Hz than the sound play will be faster of higher pitch

4. v = [9700 19000 23000 31700];
    u = [9900 11000 20000 23200 33700 36100 3800];

-> In time (divide by 16000)
v = [0.6062 1.1875 1.4375 1.9813]
u = [0.6188 0.6875 1.2500 1.4500 2.1063 2.2563 2.3750]
So from the question, these information can be directly extracted
p = 4; // number of reference points
n = 7; // number of auto segmentation points

Calculate match at 0.05 by calculating the difference between reference points and auto segmentation points. The easiest way is by developing the difference table between auto and reference points.


0.61875
0.6875
1.25
1.45
2.10625
2.25625
2.375
0.60625
0.0125
0.08125
0.64375
0.84375
1.5
1.65
1.76875
1.1875
0.56875
0.5
0.0625
0.2625
0.91875
1.06875
1.1875
1.4375
0.81875
0.75
0.1875
0.0125
0.66875
0.81875
0.9375
1.98125
1.3625
1.29375
0.73125
0.53125
0.125
0.275
0.39375

m = 2
i = n – m = 7 – 2 = 5
o = p – m = 4 – 2  = 2
p(m) = m/p x 100 = 2/4 x 100 = 50%
p(i) = i/n x 100 = 5/7 x 100 = 71.4%
p(o) = o/p x 100 = 2/4 x 100 = 50%

5. The information can be extracted from the question. Total signal. S = 8000 x 2.0 s = 16000 samples
Size of processing windows, N  = 8000 x 40ms = 320 samples
Size of overlapped windows, m = 8000 x 20ms = 160 samples
Number of auto correction p=12
Number of N in the signal can be calculated based on this formula

nN = ((S –m) / N) x 2
nN = ((16000 – 160)/ 320) x 2
nN = 15840/320 x 2
nN = 49.2 x 2
nN = 99

So, the number of features vector is N x p = 99 x 12 = 1188
The compression ratio is original signal = 16000 sample value
Compressed signal = 1188 sample value
So, compression ratio (16000 – 1188) / 16000 x 100 = 92.6%

P/s: Good Luck for final exam! Please share more notes and tips hehe... =)

The Nine Over Ten

|
The Nine Over Ten, hurm. very interesting right. If you pass an examination with flying color,  it could be in the range of nine over ten right? However, this entry was non of exam thing, I had no interest to talk about it. The nine over ten that I intended to share right here is the 9/10 of our wealth and provision comes from running FAIR BUSINESS as being taught by our Holy Prophet Muhammad pbuh 1400 years ago. The point is, it is not just only business, I had emphasized the word FAIR then only the business we run wouldn't be such a treachery, misleading, and ruin to others in any manner. Allah had forbidden all man kind from doing mischief, corruption and gambling as these habit doesn't proven to give benefit actually and even worst. Everything that being describe in Holy Qur'an and As-sunnah and altogether some prophecy that being foretold is to help all the creation to be granted His love and submit themselves to Almighty Lord where we came from and to Him we submit.

So far, for kick start, we might want something that worth us in running a business, something like gain more profit. Before that, we must know that doing fair business face lots of risk as it suit with the profit we target. We might be tested with some failure or loss. A very strong heart should not be affected by loss and failure as one will kept trying until succeed. So, the skill in management and emotional control play some rule here. We might learn from our own mistake but The Wise, learn from others mistake. Books, magazines, web pages or any form of information shall be our 'friend' to keep in save track in doing this fair business. One more important thing is our submission to after doing effort, insyaAllah, we will succeed. 

That is the theory and some tips reveal but to make it real, plan and implement it. Good Luck! Good Life!

Awkward!

|
It CAN'T be! (UK Accent) but yes, it should be. Sometimes we want thing to happen as we plan however, things also might happens in others way. The good things shall reveal the right things, the bad things shall reveal evil things. Thing, things too many probability... Everything in this world is mortal but each of them has the rule to play to assure that the world in stable state. 


There are awkward things that which also can be consider as the perfect one to be torn apart. Different people tend to understand the word 'awkward' in differ definition, depend on their ages, mind level, background, experience and such things.


Some pictures below that might be considered as awkward things around me:

Some Points:

- TG Hj. Hadi mentioned about the tahalluf among the Pakatan Rakyat component is about the victory of great collaboration from both sides. The arising and the falling of the PAS government in few countries not because of corruption within but the cheating of the outsider (UMNO and their proxies).

- Mat Sabu in his talk also stated that the next version of Bersih will be held on January

- DSAI mentioned about the Hijrah or the Moving applied by Bedouin Arab in the time of  Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h means to revoke the racist between the Arab in Bakkah (Mecca) and Yathrib (Medina). DSAI also guaranteed to all races in Malaysia (witnessed by the audiences) will granted their will and right and also provided more facilities if we fight against the corruption of UMNO and Barisan Nasional.

Answering Seksualiti Merdeka

|

Many people in Malaysia from high authority to lowest level of community, attacking the Seksualiti Merdeka for organizing the festival in fighting their right which lead by Dato' Ambiga and under supervised of Marina Mahathir (SIS). LGBT or the group of people that involved in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. They are among the participants of the festival. Just to make it clear, their fight also being oppose by all the divine faiths and religions teaching, including Islam, Christian and Buddha. Actually, what are they fighting for? Please make sure we double check. Is it about Sexual Freedom or Sexual Festival? Not at all, they just fight for the minority people with small voice who always being the prey of the giant State. We agree oppose on homosexual, bisexual and transgender as the lifestyle bring harm and forbidden by all divine faiths and religions.

This 'disease' I call, is not just pop out today but being told or prescribe in Holy Scriptures centuries ago where there lies the place name Sodom which practicing homosexual activities and lifestyle which also claimed as the people under the preaching of Prophet Lot p.b.u.h. The detail of the history can be google via wide source in internet. The gist that I want to mention here is the way of the prophet p.b.u.h preach and keep voice out the right thing to do instead of what they practiced. However the people tend to ignore the prophet until the peak of the chronology where the people of Sodom being punished just fit for their wrong doer. The moral of the story, we need to plan the strategy to face them, at least we gave them chance to talk while we just say "NO! You're WRONG! GOD FORBID!". Definitely, they know about the rules and regulation and also sin, trust me.

Actually, most of them feel like they were fated to be like this and that which is the main reason that turn them in the totally satanic practice ( If they know, some of them know may be ). The people that practice homosexual also being prescribe in the Holy Scriptures, about their existence in the last century. So, let it be firm, clear, conviction and fair to all, cherish for great hope. Please, please, please I beg, don't just blame other people whether they are innocent or not. Remember the teaching of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w in preaching and advising people. His love to us never end even to his last breath "Ummati, Ummati, Ummati..." ( O my people/followers x3... ) . Do you think he ( Muhammad s.a.w ) agree on our action like the picture below. Ponder upon this... is it worth we hate them? shall we? who are we? are we too good enough? are we extreme? are we the real duat (preacher)? who are they? is this what is Allah and His messenger claim?


THINK BEFORE YOU ACT, because if you act before you think, you got high risk to fail yourself and people around you.

P/s: I'm not fighting for LGBT right but to critic and revise the way we treat them. Sometimes, we prefer the last choice to make high order decision in order to assure that the case will be succeed and never pop out again, BUT the best one according to my understanding and my perception is by solving the problem step by step ( which one come first ) as it is ready stated in the Book of Fiqh. Wallahu 'alam.

Points Extracted

Points Extracted From Ijtima' Tarbawi: 29th October 2011

According to Dr. Kamal El Herbawi, The Delegation From Ikhwanul Muslimin,PAS is the Jamaah that contribute a great fight because the involvement in Malaysia political arena. He also give credit to other Jamaah that fight along side with PAS in Malaysia like, JIM(IKRAM), ISMA, HALUAN and others. The harmony relationship and tolerance among the Jamaah help fertilize the growing and the rise of Islamic rule in Malaysia.

Another aspect that had ben mentioned by Dr. Kamal El Herbawi, We must show the good ethic which known as akhlaq as being reported from Prophet PBUH, "Innama Bu'istu Liutammima Makarimal Akhlaq" , which means, "for I sent to complete the moral(Islamic-Akhlaq)". Without Akhlaq, there would be no Islam. Islam altogether stand straight as the real Tawheed (the concept of monotheism in Islam) applied.

According to El Fadhil El Ustaz Mahfuz Omar as the former PAS Youth President, the new generation should be thankful, because 'born' or join PAS where PAS is already in steady state. Compare to the PAS in past 60 years, the great struggle and fight by the previous generation is very meaningful which contribute to nowadays PAS. Today PAS image also look 'young' as the top management, Tuan Guru (Ulama')and other leaders of PAS allowed the make up apply to PAS time by time just fine with the current stream(according to Syaria-Islamic law).

That's are the few thing that I captured and recorded as the points for us to view and understand deeply. So, as the Hujjatul Islam (The Muslim Scholar/Speaker), we must keep ourselves prepared to fight all the misunderstand, defamation, fraud, lies and conspiracy. Moreover, the Muslim Youth.

Himpun, For What?

|
Himpunan Sejuta Umat , The rally will be held tomorrow. What is the rally all about actually? Like BERSIH or definitely opposite? Think! Organized by Non-government Organizations (NGO's) , in order to save the Muslim faith (iman) and to tell the fellow Christians that we hate them for 'bring chaos' in Malaysia. May be, those in the rally are about to bring chaos, well, in a very crowded rally with different background of perception and emotion. There is probabilities for fanatic minded people who going to make something stupid or nonsense, I don't want to mention what, but could be something burning, breaking or smashing. I just hope, that the organizer tend to tend the rally.

In Islam, we are open to give advice, settle problem with discussion just like the Prophet s.a.w taught. The delegation of Brothers of Christians had come to Prophet s.a.w to get explanation about Islam and the same goes to Muslims Brothers when a group of being order to get shelter under the justice king, King Nagash (Raja Najashir). The king heard and understood the message of Islam. The harmonic relation between Muslim and Christian already practiced by those who practicing faith more than thousand years ago. Moreover, Holy Qur'an as the Muslim Book of Guidance which is also known as El Bayan, The Book of Explanation.

In Australia previously, A priest had come to decision to burn Holy Qur'an. The unique thing is, the Muslim and Muslim NGO's around him not going to express their emotion by conducting rally, demonstration and bring the banners of disputation. On the other hand, the Muslim NGO's meet the the priest to discuss and give a present to the priest, the most beautiful and very high price of Holy Qur'an. After all, the priest refused to burn Holy Qur'an. Then they live happily ever after. Wassalaam =)

However the new voters seem to be the great contribution to this great 'event' to turn Malaysia altogether boost Malaysia to New Malaysia. We have heard too much manifestos from both sides, but what we really want is the gist and the most applicable thing that can be install in this suffered and corrupted Malaysia. Enough is enough. BN please Be End. We're totally tired with your fake words and disgusting to see you in TVs. What a Shame!

As we go through day by days, we breath heavily as under the pressure of the prices up. Petrol, diesel, gas, oil, sugar, vegetables, chickens, rice and more are gradually increase, even we have the organization that control the prices. No matter who you are, students, officers, business man, or else, we can feel it. Here is the time. The time has come, we shall not tarry.

Well, actually, our contribution to this lovely country can be in many ways. We must think and act fast before its too late and we suffer again and again until death take us away. So, I would like to ask all reader and fellow Malaysian to check your status ( 18 years old and above ) in Election Commission of Malaysia, Electoral Roll Checking.

My Super Wiggy

|
Finally, I bought a brand new P1 W1MAX fourth generation, 4G, Super Wiggy. The performance is the best among the best. Compare to other product, P1 W1MAX 4G is cheapest package, RM59 for 3 GB per month, about 10-20 Ringgit Malaysia cheaper to other products. I just pick up this package due to my usage in college. I can update blog, uploading assignments, downloads and play online game. 

Before this, I had try in my hometown P1 W1MAX 3G but unable to go online. So I decided to stop subscribe and claim RM100 (register charge) it since I still in one week trial user. Well this time, I take high risk to subscribe it again. Hopefully, it runs well. 

One more thing, I had tested this Super Wiggy in raining, still the traffic, the rate and the speed of the packets that send and receive is height performance. Just Perfect! lol. 

P/s: I don't mean to seduce or to suggest, just for sharing some core of the solid information gather from my point of view.

Memories Never Fade

In this post I just portrayed my wonderful memories beneath my heart. I just can't help myself to be cool when I look through this, deep inside I feel... I want be there again. Hopefully next time with my family. I want to bring along my beloved mum and dad whom had support me since the day I was born. I was born handicap, Duodenal Atresia . My dad take totally high risk by ask the doctor to do an operation, I don't know whether it is hurt or not because I was 3 days old. So when I grew up, I had find out that operation is the best way to cure or to help me become a normal person. I owe lots of thing to my mum and dad.

My mum of course, because she kepy me in her womb with love for about 9 month and take good care of me, teach me, support me and all the thing. My mum and dad are also my best friend ever plus my angels whom being sent by Allah to me, take care of me. In return, I'm going to bring them to Harramain for pilgrimage together with my brother. Me and my brother share the same love from our parent. One more thing that really touch me, my mum and dad are 'anak soleh solehah' as they take good care of their parent, my past grand daddy and grannny. my granny had tittle my mum herself before she passed away, she said "Your mum is a good daughter..."

Those memories linger in mind and I thankful to Allah for grant me with this bless memories... He who bring me to His home in Harramain and He is The Only One who is going to bring us there next time...

I manage to complete first tutorial from stanford university. However, for next tutorial, I just cannot finish it as I think I got problem in configure the path for Cygwin as stated in tutorial. I guess, I might install Linux as the better platform to run the tutorial.

As we all know, Android OS also share the same core with Linux OS perhaps might be not give me more errors and bugs compare to totally different platform (Windows). You know what, If I use Windows, the tutorial estimated 3 hours to complete but I still fail to complete it until now.

I really hope that when I'm using Linux OS, I be able to solve the problem

Place setting : UTM Dorm/ College ( Ramadhan Breakfast in college style )

Alhamdulillah! Today Allah had surprised me by grant me meals. You know what, I don't have much money remained but I believe in Allah that He will always take care of me, no matter what, when. O Allah thank you. If I check my wallet, I only have about RM20 to keep living for a few more days in UTM. Besides, I still can go to UTM Mosque to join the breakfast provided there.


( Click picture to zoom in )

How Allah? Yes! via my roommate ( Hafiz - Master by research student - FGHT UTM ), he brought the rambutans, fried noodle, tamar, keropok and durian jam (lepok) from my hometown, Kelantan ( Serambi Makkah ). I don't estimate that he would bring all of them in Fasting month. Usually, he always do so.No matter what, as we all know, Allah give what He want to give, Allah The Most Gracious and Most Merciful. He look after all of us including the plants, the the wilds, the natures. He need no partner to handle all of them. And the 'all' bow upon Him. That is it.

Democracy in Islam

|


Democracy is a commonly known word all over the world. Most of the political movements in the world have made it their goal to establish this system in their respective countries. Democracy is the most popular and accepted political system in the modern world. Yet, there exists some difference of opinion among the Islamic groups on democracy. Democracy and human rights have occupied very important position in the political agenda of many of the Islamic parties. However, some of the parties and people do not accept it, since democracy speaks of sovereignty of the people.

In this context, we need careful and deep analysis on this issue. We need to understand the issue avoiding the minor technicalities. As we see, Islamic parties and Islamic scholars of the modern world think of a political system wherein government will run the country through Parliament. They also want freedom of expression, voting right of the people, rule of law, independent & free judiciary, free press, fundamental human rights etc. These are also the pre-requisites of the democratic system. It is therefore, apparent on a deeper analysis that the concept of state and govt. of Islamic Parties are in conformity with the principles of democracy.

 Theoretically speaking, Islam speaks of sovereignty of Allah, while western democracy advocates that sovereignty belongs to people. However, all political thinkers do not share the same view of sovereignty. Some political scientists even argue that there is no need of concept sovereignty at all. Even the concept of sovereignty is not highlighted in the books which discuss democracy though sovereignty is discussed in great detail as a political concept in the books of political science. In this context, we feel it necessary to quote from the writings of Allama Yousuf Al Qardawi, an eminent Islamic scholar of the present time. He wrote:

 “ The fear of some people here that democracy makes the people a source of power and even legislation (although legislation is Allah’s alone) should not be heeded here, because we are supposed to be speaking of a people that in its majority and has accepted Allah as its Lord, Mohammad as its Prophet and Islam as its Religion. Such a people would not be expected to pass a legislation that contradicts Islam and its incontestable principles and conclusive rules.”

 “Anyway, these fears can be overcome by one article stipulating that any legislation contradicting the incontestable provisions of Islam shall be null and void because Islam is the religion of the State and the source of legitimacy of all its institutions and therefore may no be contradicted, as a branch may not run against the main stream.”

 “It should be known that the acceptance of the principle that legislation or rule belong to Allah does not rob the Nation of its right to seek for itself the codes necessary to regulate its ever-changing life and earthly affairs.”

 “What we seek is that legislations and codes be within the limits of the flawless texts and the over all objectives of Sharia and the Islamic Message. The binding texts are very few, while the area of “permissibility” or legislative free space is quite wide and the texts themselves are so flexible and capacious as to accommodate more than one understanding and accept more than one interpretation, which leads to the existence of several schools and philosophies within the expansive framework of Islam.” (Quoted from ‘Priorities of the Islamic Movement in the Coming Phase’, Chapter : The movement and political Freedom and Democracy)

We find many Islamic scholars accepted the idea of democracy in Islam though under certain conditions. Dr. Abu Said Nuruddin has written in his book ‘Mohakobi Iqbal’, ( Iqbal the Great Poet) that Allama Iqbal, was not happy with the democratic system because of its secularist stance but he suggested in his writings that there was no alternative to democracy. In his 6th speech on ‘Reconstruction of religious thought in Islam’, Allama Iqbal stated that Islamic state is established on the principles of freedom, equality, and the absolute principles of stability. Therefore the principles of democratic rule is not only similar with the fundamental aspects of Islam rather the executing powers are enhanced in the Muslim world (Mohakabi Iqbal, Iqbal the Great Poet by Dr. Abu Said Nuruddin)

Iqbal observed, should the foundation of democracy rests upon spiritual and moral values, it would be the best political system. He wrote in the "The New Era" on its 28th July, 1917 issue: that democracy was born in Europe from  economic renaissance that took place in most of its societies…….But Islamic democracy is not developed from the idea of economic advancement rather it is a spiritual principle that comes from the principle that everybody is a source of power whose possibilities can be developed through virtue and character”. [Mohakabi Iqbal ( Iqbal the Great Poet) by Dr. Abu Said Nuruddin, page -239)
That means according to Iqbal Islam prescribes democracy under the law of Allah.

 We see Moulana Maududi, fifty years ago from now, in his book “Political theory of Islam” used the term “Theo-democracy” for Islamic state. He didn’t deny the term ‘democracy’. Rather he accepted democracy while this system will work under the sovereignty of Allah. We also see that in the first Islamic constitution of the present world, the term democracy was accepted with the consent of Islamic scholars (ulema). In the preamble, the term democracy was accepted in the following manner :

 “ Wherein the principles of democracy freedom, equality, tolerance and social justice, as enunciated by Islam, should be fully observed”. (from the preamble  of the constitution of 1956)

 In the 1973 constitution the same position was maintained.
“Wherein the principles of democracy freedom, equality, tolerance and social justice, as enunciated by Islam, shall be fully observed”. (from the preamble of the constitution of 1973)

 This means that democracy has been accepted within the limits of Islam so that in the name of democracy Islamic principles cannot be violated. Islamic Scholars and Islamic Politicians have come to accept the word democracy and what it means within these limits.

 Allama Yousuf Al Qardawi in his book “ Priorities of the Islamic Movement In the Coming Phase” has titled one of its chapters as “ The Movement and Political Freedom and Democracy”. In this book he has shown that Islam does not allow any kind of autocracy or monarchy. He also showed that Islam spreads through political freedom. He stated that Islam unlike democracy is a complete code of life, which encompasses many more vital issues of human needs. Above all, he thinks democracy is consistent with Islam and the fundamental rights of mankind prescribed in Islam can be ensured through democracy. He has advocated in favor of democratic system and political freedom. But he suggested to introduce a clause in the constitution to the effect that no law will be passed contrary to the injunctions of the Quran and Sunnah. This clause will act as guarantee against the fear of some people that anti Islamic law may be passed under the cover of democracy. Dr. Qardawi writes:

 “ It is the duty of the ( Islamic) Movement in the coming phase to stand firm against totalitarian and dictatorial rule, political despotism and usurpation of people’s rights. The movement should always stand by political freedom, as represented by true , not false, democracy. It should flatly declare its refusal of tyrants and steer clear of all dictators, even if some tyrant appears to have good intentions towards it for some gain and for a time that is usually short, as has been shown by experience.

 The Prophet (SAWS)  said , “ When you see my Nation fall victim to fear and does not say to   wrong-doer , “ You are wrong”, then you may lose hope in them. “ So how about a regime that forces people to say to a conceited wrongdoer, “ How just, how great you are. O our hero, our savior and our liberator!”
 The Quran denounces tyrants such as Nimrudh, Pharoah, Haman and others, but it also dispraises those who follow tyrants and obey their orders. This is why Allah dispraises the people of Noah by saying, “ But they follow (men) whose wealth and children give them no increase but only loss.” [Surat Nuh : 21]

 Allah also says of Ad, people of Hud, “ And followed the command of every powerful, obstinate transgressor”.[ Sura HUD : 59]

 See also what the Quran says about the people of Pharoah, “ But they followed the command of Pharaoh, and the command of Pharoah was not rightly guided.[ Surat Hud : 97] “ Thus he made fools of his people, and they obeyed him : truly they were a people rebellious (against Allah) .” [ Sura Az- Zukhruf : 54]

A closer look at the history of the Muslim Nation and the Islamic Movement in modern times should show clearly that the Islamic idea, the Islamic Movement and the Islamic Awakening have never flourished or borne fruit unless in an atmosphere of democracy and freedom, and have withered and become barren only at the times of oppression and tyranny that trod over the will of the people by force which clung to Islam. Such oppressive regimes imposed their Secularism, Socialism, or Communism on their people by force and coercion, using covert torture and public executions, and employing those devilish tools that tore flesh, shed blood, crushed bone and destroyed the soul.

On the other hand, we saw the Islamic Movement and the Islamic Awakening bear fruit and flourish at the times of freedom and democracy, and in the wake of the collapse of imperial regimes that ruled peoples with fear and oppression.Therefore, I would not imagine that the Islamic Movement could support anything other than political freedom and democracy.”


 “ However, the tools and guarantees created by democracy are as close as can ever be to the realization of the political principles brought to this earth by Islam to put a leash on the ambitions and whims of rulers. These principles are: shura (consultation), good advice enjoining what is proper and forbidding what is evil, disobeying illegal orders, resisting unbelief and changing wrong by force whenever possible. It is only in democracy and political freedom that the power of Parliament is evident and that people’s deputies can withdraw confidence from any government that breaches the Constitution, and it is only in such an environment that the strength of free press, free Parliament, opposition and the masses is most felt.” 
 (Quoted from ‘Priorities of the Islamic Movement in the Coming Phase’, Chapter : The movement and political Freedom and Democracy)

 It is evident  from the above discussion that Islamic thinkers and Muslim people want their right to vote, rule of law, and a government that is to be elected by the people. The term democracy mean all these things. Taking everything into consideration, we can say that there is no problem to accept the term democracy under certain conditions. We see different constitutions and Islamic scholars conditionally accepted the term ‘democracy’. Muslim community can accept this term. This will help to remove misunderstandings about Islam that it is for violence and dictatorships.

An Open Letter to Najib

|

Dear PM Najib,

As a result of the developments on July 9, the world is now paying increased attention to Malaysia.

In particular, we now wonder how free and fair your nation's elections are. We have learned that some of your country's citizens believe that Malaysia needs electoral reform. On July 9, they marched with a coalition called Bersih 2.0, and they called for free and fair elections.

You responded by declaring Bersih illegal and suppressing the 'Walk for Democracy' with overwhelming police force. The world noticed your heavy-handed reaction, and it wondered why a peaceful demonstration calling for fair elections bothered you so much - so much so that you were willing to risk Malaysia's international reputation - and give your country and yourself a major black eye.

When you returned from your visit to Europe, you declared that Malaysia's elections truly are free and fair, and that Umno has never cheated in any election.

I am glad to hear that.

Because it means that in Malaysia's next general elections, you have nothing to hide.

Governments that manipulate elections have lots to cover up. But you say that your elections are free and fair, so that means you have nothing to be afraid of showing to all of us in the outside world, not to mention your own people.

Therefore, I am sure that you are willing to readily agree to the following proposals:

1) Allow international groups to observe your elections. Based on your assertions, they will find nothing amiss, and their reports will give credibility to Malaysia's election results.

2) Allow observers from all political parties to witness the postal balloting that takes place on military bases. For years, the opposition has said that something is amiss. But since you say that Umno never cheats, I am sure that they will find nothing wrong, and you will be vindicated.

3) Let's put an end to all the accusations about phantom voters by using a simple, effective and cheap solution - indelible ink.

Your Elections Commission wants a super-sophisticated biometric system, but there is no way it can be in place by then - and many people worry that it can be manipulated. Indelible ink works - just ask the world's largest democracy, India. I don't think anyone has ever disputed the results of India's elections in over 60 years.

4) Finally, let RTM be truly independent, like the BBC and NHK and the public broadcasting systems in Australia, France, Germany, and elsewhere in the world. RTM does not belong to Umno. It belongs to the people.
As long as RTM - funded by all the people of Malaysia - acts as the propaganda arm of the 25 percent of Malaysians who voted for Umno, no one can believe that Malaysia's elections are fair and free.

So, my dear Prime Minister, it's all very simple. You say that Malaysia's elections are free and fair. Now you have a chance to prove it to the outside world and remove all doubts. And if your party wins, then the Malaysian people - and the world - might finally be convinced.

If you refuse these suggestions, then the doubts will linger, and your assertions about the honesty of Malaysia's election will continue to be questioned.

Sincerely,
John Malott

Broadcast Vehicle

|
In my previous post on Malaysia NeoTv! had discuss about the reality in Malaysia for having clean and genuine news. So, in this post I would like to suggest as the alternative of premise Tv station, the Broadcast Vehicle which is a compact tv station in a vehicle.

The main point is, we can transmit our own channel for an example Tv PAS. Even though there is already Tv PAS online but how about the people in rural area. They might have Tv at their home but no internet. By having this vehicle we can spread real story and facts to them.We can make it permitted of prohibited depend on the non-ethic and corrupted government of Malaysia. We strive for the truth, no reason for making this broadcast vehicle prohibited.
Tv Pro Gear is one of the manufacturer which provide the services and packages of broadcast vehicle. They will design, engineer, supply the equipment, wire, integrate, test, and train you on your new broadcast vehicle. They are are capable of taking on any broadcast format.  If you need a vehicle that can Broadcast via Satellite, Microwave, or over the Internet, let TV Pro Gear’s experts build it for you.  The only limit to what they can create is your imagination.


Another manufacturer is Frontline Communication which conduct the same business but different in applying services and design of broadcast vehicle.



Does not enough if we still can't explain without this medium. They attack the people in all sort of place and medium. Media Prima of cause, it is not enough if only we boo them, but they got 'gun' to 'shot' us. O Allah I seek your help, guide us to freedom and victory. I know You heard us... 

O Allah if before this I pray for you, 'Layyin' / soften their heart... but now since they not. I pray for you lead us the right way to remove them away from our sight. Bring us peace and dignity... Thank You Allah...
