Beware of Unconfirmed News!

Of late since the results of the PRU12 were announced - and even during the day - there were many news flying around about one thing or another. Some of the news, were rather explosive and quite controversial in nature, and several have caused quite a stir. However, many a times the news were unfortunately found to be untrue. I would like to take this opportunity to advise all my friends and visitors, to be careful of any news each receive, and if possible get confirmation of the news before spreading it.

The reason for this entry is due to the latest news which supposedly said that Tok Guru Nik Aziz will be gracing the Maulidur Rasul celebration at the Shah Alam Stadium on the 27&28 of March, 2008. This news was spread several days back via sms and email by certain quarters who may have been enthusiastic upon receiving the news from unknown sources. Upon receiving an email in response to that, I checked with Roslan SMS and confirmed the email below to be true, negating the earlier news mentioned above:

Re: Selangor menanti kedatangan TGNA untuk bermunajat di stadium Shah Alam.

"Kadet Pencen"

Assalamu'alaikum warahmatullah hi wabarakatuh,

Semnjak akhir ini, terdapat banyak berita yang disebarkan samada secara peribadi, sms, dan juga emel, sehingga menyebabkan ramai yang tertanya mengenai kesahihan berita berita itu. Di sini, ingin saya meminta orangramai supaya mendapatkan kesahihan sesatu berita yang diterima sebelum menyebarkannya.

Antara satu dari berita yang diterima baru baru ini, adalah kedatangan YAB TG Nik Aziz ke Stadium Shah Alam pada hari Khamis 27/28 Mac ini. Setelah mendapat kesahihan dari 2 sumber:

1. Saudara Sayuti, Ketua Lajnah Penerangan DPP Shah Alam, dan
2. Saudara Roslan Shahir, Setiausaha Akhbar Presiden PAS,

izinkan saya menyatakan bahawa berita ini TIDAK BENAR; tidak ada atau belum ada lagi rancangan sedemikian buat masa ini! Saya juga telah difahamkan bahawa berkemungkinan besar kerajaan baru Negeri Selangor akan mengeluarkan kenyataan mereka tidak lama lagi.

Terima kasih.

Wassalamu'alaikum warahmatullah hi wabarakatuh,

but the good thing now is, Shah Alam stadium can be just like Sultan Muhammad IV. TGNA can lead a mass prayers seeking Allah's blessing for the state to prosper WITHOUT going too much hassle with permits and shit. Khir would not like this but hey, what an opposition to do?

Salam kerp,

True. InsyAllah it will be easier for the duration the BA is in office. However as for the email but that guy, I guess the worry is that:

1. There might be a rush by supporters to attend but only to be disappointed when announced the news to be not true.

2. To avoid any news which may lead to negative implications in the future.

This unconfirmed news just in. Samy Velu to have sex-change operation. He said he is fed-up being treated like dirt. Since women get better treatment, maybe his life would be more bearable after this. Mahathir Mohamad was seen playing badminton with Anwar Ibrahim. Datuk Nallakarupan has teamed up with Ritchie Blackmore and Robert Page to form an anglong group.

Salam Cikgu,

Lol! But Blackmore and Page in an angklung group? Now, that would certainly cause a stir! :)
