Taib is now after the Land of the Dead
Many Sarawakians are fully aware that Taib Mahmud and his cronies by way of abuses of political power through the State policy of Politics of Development, have robbed and accumulated the wealth and riches of the state of Sarawak by awarding the timber licences to their own companies and political and business associates to extract the State’s forest resources; control State, private and NCR land ownership and pass those economically potential lands to their own companies for agricultural, commercial and real estate development purposes; monopolise govt contracts and public projects big and small through the various State and federal depts and state agencies and channel them to their own business entities; demand illegal extortion money from Chinese businessmen and investors big and small.
On the other hand Taib Mahmud and his gang of thieves have continuously blocked and denied the people of Sarawak their share and access to the State wealth and resources namely ownership and development of state lands and NCR lands for commercial and agricultural purposes, the award of govt contracts and public projects, the administrative and financial support from state and relevant agencies.
Since Taib Mahmud holds power in 1981, there is little economic progress achieved by the people of Sarawak. The majority of the people especially the Bumis still live in a substandard standard of living. Ownership of commercially valuable private lands, plantations, real estate land and projects, business ownership and financial wealth are mainly owned by Taib Mahmud and his entourage of thieves. One may conclude that any greedy man will have to stop somewhere. Wrong! This man who believes in borderless greed is unstoppable! Now he is going after the dead! Can you imagine that?!
Muslims are forbidden to build even mosques on a muslim graveyard. The chairman of LAKMNS and Taib Mahmud’s argument that the burial ground is no more in use and hence is considered abandoned, and thereby of no use to any one is dead wrong. There are many sites, places in Sarawak though they are no more active are highly valued for their educational, historical and economic significance. The Niah cave is no more used by the descendants of the cavemen, yet it is a very important tourist site.
The muslim cemetery is believed to be 100 years old. Hence the burial site should be maintained as a historical site especially for the descendants of those buried there. The demolition act is in fact a testing ground for Taib’s satanic agenda. Taib has been eyeing the Malay lands across the Sarawak river. However there is a catch here. Within the Malay kampung sites are are located a number of graveyards.
So if Taib wants the kampong lands, he has to go through the Land of the Dead. As I said this man knows no bounds, even though he himself has one foot in the grave. Looks like he is going to take the risk – demolish the World of the Dead. If a man intends to destroy the alam barzakh he is invoking the wrath of ALLAH . The muslims in Sarawak should rise against this man whose lusts are unprecedented in the entire history of Sarawak dating back to the early history of the Brunei sultanate rule.
