  • Oil palm price??????? Zakir Naik will pay the balance deficit in price drop? Is this the shared prosperity mission? OMG. We better have No leader than to have one who may destroy our livelihood.

  • Who had Mahathir explained his reasons for not extraditing Zakir Naik to? Syed Saddiq the boy?
    We know that he does not and would never have had the balls to tell Modi that directly.
    He only excels at bullying minorities in his own country, like the Jaguh Kampong he truly is.

  • We do not want to have war, but it seems a "war" has just begun.

  • Its getting complex.

    First - Malaysia wants its Altantuya-murder fugitive back here
    Australia refuses.

    Then India wants Anandakrishnan for investgation.
    Malaysia refuses

    Again India wants Zakir Naik.
    Malaysia refuses.

    Meanwhile Teresa goes on marketing mission for palm oil exports.
    One of the countries selected - India

    Then PM7 comments on Kashmir and India's action on that ruling 370.
    (Coincidence - Malaysia also had a 370 in 2014 n till now the plane is not located.)

    Very strange -Wismaputra fellows never research how it all started in 1947 and who were the agressors.
    No wonder they could not advise the ministerand the PM7.

    After that intelligent remark on India's 370, the palm oil importers in India (not the government) have recommended that Malaysian palmoil should not be considered for import.

    Now Teresa Kok has to come up with another strategy to find new markets.Only third world countries are eary target customers. Of course she can use ethnic ties and ask Chine to increase imports. But China wants win-win... and that too has to be avoided to have a repeat like Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

    Back to Zakir Naik.

    PM7 once said, few countries willing to accept ZN and so he stays in Malaysia.

    Alamak - what happended to the recent fresh bonding with Pakistan and Turkey?
    Could have asked these two countries to accept ZN and helphim set up that broadcast channel there.
    If that was done -case over for Malaysia.. and two hoots for India.

    But its not happening.

    Stillwant to give ZN the Malaysian comfort.
