Gaping scars on hill-slopes of Sungai Ara, Penang


What’s going on at this steep hill-slope in Sungai Ara? It should be visible from the Jalan Kenari area, not far from Divine Mercy Church.

That the best solution as GHP could be another PAS in disguise or even worse.

Be as cautious of GHB as you are of PAS
Gerakan tells non-Muslims that GHB is a “trick” and that they too will pursue the issue of hudud like PAS is doing in Kelantan.

UMNO voted alongside PAS for HUDUD in Kelantan. Najib is the President of UMNO and the head of BN. So what does this make of BN, UMNO and Najib? Are they all HUDUD supporters by virtue of their association and actions?
