Dosa Pengganas Sulu Tidak Pernah Terpadam – Abu Bakar Omar

UTUSAN: MASIH segar dalam ingatan mayat anggota polis terapung di bawah rumah di Kampung Simunul, Semporna, lewat petang 3 Mac 2013. Kampung yang sesak dengan rumah papan dibina di atas air itu disambungkan dengan pelantar pejalan kaki yang juga diperbuat daripada papan.

Mayat berkenaan tidak mampu dikeluarkan oleh anggota pasukan keselamatan berikutan keadaan sekeliling yang masih berbahaya selepas sekumpulan pegawai dan anggota Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) diserang hendap ketika melakukan pemeriksaan terhadap pihak yang dipercayai ada kaitan dengan pengganas Sulu di kawasan itu pada pukul 7.30 malam, 2 Mac 2013.Anggota pasukan keselamatan tidak berjaya memasuki kawasan berkenaan yang sebelum itu diserbu oleh Allahyarham Superitendan Ibrahim Lebar yang mengetuai sepasukan anggota polis dalam misi menahan tali barut Agbimuddin Kiram, iaitu ketua pengganas Sulu yang mendakwa dirinya sebagai adik Jamalul Kiram III yang kononnya Sultan Sulu.Keadaan terlalu bahaya untuk anggota pasukan keselamatan memasuki kawasan itu bagi menarik keluar mayat anggota polis yang terbunuh dalam kejadian berbalas tembak dengan pengganas Sulu pada malam 2 Mac. Ini kerana dibimbangi masih ada saki-baki pengganas Sulu yang bersembunyi di dalam rumah atau bot di sekitar kawasan pertempuran berkenaan dan hanya menunggu masa untuk membunuh lebih ramai anggota pasukan keselamatan.Enam anggota polis gugur dalam kejadian itu. Ada antara mereka yang dibunuh dengan amat kejam, iaitu leher dipenggal, selain ada yang dicungkil biji mata.Hanya pada senja 3 Mac 2013, anggota pasukan keselamatan yang dikatakan terdiri daripada etnik Iban dalam Pasukan Gerakan Am (PGA), berjaya menyusup masuk ke kawasan pertempuran itu untuk membawa keluar mayat enam anggota polis yang terkorban. Kira-kira pukul 9 malam, Pangkalan Polis Marin yang tidak jauh dari Kampung Simunul diserang dengan sekurang-kurangnya tiga das tembakan oleh pengganas Sulu. Seluruh pekan Semporna bertukar menjadi amat sepi berikutan tiada sesiapa pun yang berani keluar.Maka bermula dari saat itulah, pasukan keselamatan mengambil tindakan memerangi pengganas Sulu yang sudah menyusup masuk ke Kampung Tanduo di Felda Sahabat, Lahad Datu sejak awal Februari 2013 dan memulakan keganasan dengan membunuh dua anggota polis komando VAT 69 pada pagi 1 Mac 2013.Ops Daulat yang dilancarkan selama kira-kira sebulan setengah mulai 5 Mac 2013 menyaksikan anggota Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM) dan PDRM berperang dengan pengganas Sulu di Gugusan Labian sekitar Felda Sahabat.Bagi mengelakkan Agbimuddin Kiram ditahan atau terbunuh dalam pertempuran, pengganas Sulu yang mencerobohi Kampung Tanduo kerana mendakwa Sabah adalah wilayah di bawah jajahan takluk Kesultanan Sulu, dikatakan terpaksa melarikan beliau kembali ke selatan Filipina, dipercayai Tawi Tawi.Pengikut Agbimuddin Kiram yang taksub dengan pemimpin mereka dikatakan terpaksa mendayung sampan iaitu taktik terbaik untuk mengelak daripada dikesan oleh radar pasukan keselamatan yang sensitif terhadap haba enjin motor sangkut atau enjin bot.Seramai 63 pengganas Sulu berjaya dibunuh manakala lapan anggota PDRM dan dua anggota ATM gugur di medan pertempuran. Agbimuddin Kiram, 74, dilaporkan meninggal dunia akibat serangan jantung di kediamannya di Barangay Tubig Indangan di pekan Siminul, Tawi-Tawi pada Januari 2015. Sebelum itu, abangnya, Jamalul Kiram III meninggal dunia kerana masalah jantung dan buah pinggang pada 20 Oktober 2013.Pencerobohan dan pembunuhan dilakukan pengganas Sulu yang sudah berlalu dua tahun lalu bukan setakat diratapi dan ditangisi oleh anggota keluarga 10 anggota pasukan keselamatan terbabit, terutama anggota polis yang dibunuh dengan kejam, malah rakyat Malaysia secara keseluruhannya.Kebiadaban pengganas Sulu mencerobohi Kampung Tanduo dan beberapa kampung lain di sekitar Gugusan Labian di Lahad Datu hingga memaksa ratusan penduduk kampung melarikan diri dan berlindung di dewan orang ramai adalah kepahitan yang amat sukar untuk ditelan oleh rakyat negara ini.Hingga saat ini, sudah pastilah anggota keluarga pasukan kese­lamatan yang terkorban itu tidak mampu dengan mudah melupakan kejadian berkenaan, apatah lagi untuk memaafkan pengganas Sulu atau pemimpin mereka.Semoga Allah SWT melimpahkan rahmat-Nya ke atas roh Allahyarham Asisten Superintendan Zulkifli Mamat dan Sarjan Sabarudin Daud dari VAT 69 yang terkorban dalam pertempuran di Kampung Tanduo pada 1 Mac 2013.Doa juga dipanjatkan untuk Allahyarham Superintendan Ibrahim Lebar, Sarjan Baharin Hamit, Sarjan Aziz Sarikun, Koperal Salam Togiran dan Lans Koperal Mohd Azrul Tukiran yang gugur dalam medan perjuangan di Kampung Simunul pada 2 Mac 2013.Seorang lagi anggota polis yang terbunuh dalam pertempuran di Kampung Simunul ialah Asisten Superintendan Micheal Padel. Mayat keenam-enam pegawai dan anggota polis terbabit dijumpai dalam keadaan amat mengerikan.Al-Fatihah juga dihadiahkan kepada dua anggota tentera yang terbabit dalam Ops Daulat. Prebet Ahmad Hurairah Ismail gugur dalam pertempuran di Sungai Nyamuk, di Felda Sahabat dan Prebet Ahmad Farhan Roslan pula terkorban dalam kemalangan jalan raya apabila trak yang dinaikinya terbalik di Chenderawasih, Felda Sahabat.Dalam keadaan luka yang tidak akan sembuh itu masih membusung dalam jiwa isteri dan anak-anak dan keseluruhan anggota keluarga 10 anggota pasukan keselamatan itu, tiba-tiba Ahli Parlimen Lembah Pantai, Nurul Izzah Anwar boleh berinteraksi dan duduk semeja berbual dengan anak Jamalul Kiram III, iaitu Jacel H Kiram di Manila pada awal bulan ini.Nurul Izzah mendakwa tidak pernah kenal Jacel sebelum pertemuan itu dan Jacel ialah seorang daripada 15 tetamu yang dijemput penganjur program, iaitu Malis Hal Ehwal Filipina dan Institut Asia Untuk Demokrasi, Pejabat Datuk Bandar Manila dan Pejabat Naib Presiden Filipina.Beliau juga mendakwa mereka yang menghadiri program berkenaan bergambar dengannya sebagai tanda sokongan terhadap laporan Kumpulan Kerja Mengenai Penahanan Tanpa Bicara Pertubuhan Bangsa-bangsa Bersatu (PBB) yang menggesa agar Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dibebaskan. Nurul Izzah mendakwa kesal atas kesedihan yang dialami anggota keluarga anggota pasukan negara yang terbunuh dalam pencerobohan pengganas Sulu.Sama ada secara sedar atau tidak, Nurul Izzah sememangnya telah melukakan hati kebanyakan rakyat Malaysia yang tidak mungkin boleh memaafkan dosa pengganas Sulu, termasuklah anggota keluarga Jamilul Kiram III.Tiada sesiapa pun di negara ini yang menyokong keganasan sebagai cara untuk mengatasi masalah. Tidak ada siapa pun rakyat Malaysia, khususnya rakyat Sabah yang menyokong tindakan pengikut Jamalul Kiram III memulakan perang ke atas Kerajaan Malaysia semata-mata kerana mendakwa Sabah adalah milik Kesultanan Sulu.Sekali imbas, aspek pertemuan Nurul Izzah dengan Jacel boleh didakwa oleh Nurul Izzah sebagai tidak disengajakan kerana beliau hakikatnya menghadiri program untuk mendapatkan sokongan masyarakat antarabangsa untuk membebaskan bapanya. Namun demikian, sebagai ahli politik dan antara pemimpin PKR, Nurul Izzah harus lebih berhati-hati dengan siapa ingin ditemuinya di luar negara. Ini kerana jika beliau beranggapan pertemuan dengan Jacel tidak lebih sekadar pertemuan biasa sesama pemimpin politik, ia ternyata silap.Nurul Izzah tidak boleh bersahabat dengan Jacel kerana Jacel ialah antara pewaris kepemimpinan Jamalul Kiram yang bertanggungjawab atas pencerobohan Kampung Tanduo di Lahad Datu yang turut bererti mencabar dan menggugat kedaulatan Malaysia sebagai negara berdaulat.Jauh lebih penting daripada itu ialah Nurul Izzah telah melakukan kesilapan bertemu seorang wanita yang tidak pernah memadamkan hasrat anggota keluarganya menuntut Sabah sebagai wilayah Kesultanan Sulu. Hal ini amat berbahaya dari aspek keselamatan dan ketenteraman awam Sabah khasnya dan Malaysia amnya.Rakyat Malaysia, khususnya di Sabah tidak mahu lagi keselamatan dan ketenteraman awam di negeri di bawah bayu itu digugat oleh mana-mana pihak.PENULIS ialah pesara tentera berpangkat kolonel dan kini penulis bebas dalam aspek sosiokeselamatan dan hubungan antarabangsa.

Sulu forces planning another Sabah incursion-NST

(NST) – KUALA LUMPUR: The Sulu forces in southern Philippines are planning a ‘revenge attack’ following the 2013 deadly stand-off in Lahad Datu and reclaim Sabah, Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said. This was gathered from intelligence by the enforcement agencies, Nur Jazlan said. He told the New Straits Times that the ministry was monitoring and working to neutralise the local network of sympathisers. “We have been doing continuous and intensive monitoring. There are indications that the group is planning a revenge attack. “We want to neutralise their network of sympathisers to prevent any such attack.” Nur Jazlan said many sympathisers had been assimilated into the communities, making it harder for the enforcers to identify them. “They are normal people, usually locals or non-Malaysians, with ties to the communities in southern Philippines. So, there are many of them. “They have interwoven with the communities in eastern Sabah, which makes it more difficult to identify them.” Immigration Department deputy director-general Datuk Sakib Kusmi said the movement of people with Sulu links was being monitored by enforcement agencies, including the Eastern Sabah Security Command. Sabah state assembly on Thursday passed a proposal to ban foreigners associated with the self-proclaimed Sulu sultanate from entering the country. Legal action was also proposed against PKR lawmakers Nurul Izzah Anwar and Tian Chua following their meeting with Jacel Kiram, daughter of the late Jamalul Kiram III, who ordered the 2013 intrusion.

Rukun Negara, The Foundation Of The Federal Constitution

How could a person talk about our national unity if the person does not understand the Rukun Negara or the National Principles of Malaysia?

Do all citizens of Malaysia memorised the five principles of our Rukun Negara and understand the importance of the principles in building a harmonious society where people respect each other regardless of our different races and religions?

In my opinion, all Malaysian must all least memorise the the five principles of Rukun Negara, which is the basic pillar of our nation.

Below is what I understand about our Rukun Negara after studying to a talk by Aunty Prof. Syamrahayu Abdul Aziz.

MAKA KAMI, rakyat Malaysia, berikrar akan menumpukan seluruh tenaga dan usaha kami untuk mencapai cita-cita tersebut berdasarkan atas prinsip-prinsip yang berikut :

  • KEPERCAYAAN KEPADA TUHAN;
  • KESETIAAN KEPADA RAJA DAN NEGARA;
  • KELUHURAN PERLEMBAGAAN;
  • KEDAULATAN UNDANG-UNDANG;
  • KESOPANAN DAN KESUSILAAN

The first principle of the Rukun Negara is “Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan” or “Belief in God”, which is in consistent with Article 11 of our Federal Constitution.

“Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan” means that all Malaysians must belief in god or in another word, every citizen of Malaysia must has a religious belief; we must remember that Article 11 of the Federal Constitution is about “Freedom of Religion”, and not “Freedom from Religion”.

Religions tie us to god and and teach us to obey rules; religious people respect others, do not humiliate or cause trouble with others, including those from different races and religions.

Therefore, atheism is not recognised in Malaysia as it is against the first principle of Rukun Negara as well as the Article 11 of our Federal Constitution.

The second principle of the Rukun Negara is “Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara” or “Loyalty to the King and Country”.

This is very important because the royal institution is the key to the stability of our country.

Article 32 of The Federal Constitution says that the King or the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong is the Supreme Head of the Federation, so loyalty the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong also means loyalty to the country.

How could a person says that he or she is loyal to a country if he or she is not loyal to the Supreme Head of the country?

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong under Article 153, is the caretaker of the rights of the people of all races in Malaysia as agreed in the Social Contract or agreement made by our great forefathers in giving the citizenship to the non-citizen migrants before our Merdeka Day.

Article 153 (1) states that:

It shall be the responsibility of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to safeguard the special position of the Malays and natives of any of the States of Sabah and Sarawak and the legitimate interests of other communities in accordance with the provisions of this Article.

Article 153 protects the rights of all races of Malaysians; so the Article unites the citizens of Malaysia as it ties us to our rights and at the same time we respect the rights of others.

Questioning the Article 153 is against the national unity because it is also questioning the citizenship given to the Chinese and the Indians; and that must not happen because all of us have our own rights as agreed by our forefathers.

A person is worthless if he or she demands his or her rights as a citizen but is not loyal to his or her country.

The third principle of the Rukun Negara is “Keluhuran Perlembagaan” or “Upholding the Constitution”.

Article 4 of the Federal Constitution states that the Federal Constitution is the “Supreme law of the Federation”, therefore it must be upheld by each and every citizen of Malaysia.

Article 4(1) states that:

This Constitution is the supreme law of the Federation and any law passed after Merdeka Day which is inconsistent with this Constitution shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be void.

Apart from being the supreme law, the Federal Constitution is also an agreement between us as the citizen and our nation; and upholding the Constitutions means that we must put the national interests and the loyalty to the Federation above others including our ‘states sentiments’. 

Honest people will uphold their promises at all time, so good citizens must uphold the Federal Constitution at all time; and respect all the Articles that had been agreed upon by our forefathers.

The fourth principle is “Kedaulatan Undang-Undang” or “Rule of Law”.

“Kedaulatan Undang-Undang” means that every citizen must respect the law, is subjected to the law and that our country must be governed by law.

If a person, even if he is a party leader was found guilty by the Federal Court which is the highest court of our country, he must respect the rule of law and not asking foreign powers to interfere with the law of our country; for all citizens must not only uphold the rule of law but must protect the sovereignty of our country. 

The last principle of the Rukun Negara is “Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan” or “Good Behaviour and Morality”.

“Kesopanan dan kesusilaan” is the key to a harmonious society that is the core factor in ensuring the stability of a nation. 

It is impossible to live harmoniously in a country where each and every citizen exercises personal total freedom without thinking of others, either freedom of speech or freedom of expression because we will be end up hurting each other for our needs and interests are different.

Living in society, we cannot be individualistic and selfish but we need to also respect the rights of others in consistent to the Federal Constitution and the rule of law of the nation.

In fact, the Article 10 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia states the limits of one’s freedom of speech and expression.

Therefore, liberalism is against our Rukun Negara and our Federal Constitution because the liberalists want to be free from rules either rules of religion or rules of the country; and interpret all matters only the way they wish, according to their own personal interests.

Rukun Negara as the foundation of the agreement in forming the Federal Constitution must be understood and upheld by all Malaysian citizens.

* I want to thank Aunty Sham for helping me to understand the Rukun Negara that helps me to write this assignment given by my mother.
