The government has today filed a notice of appeal against the June 26 decision of KL High Court Judge V T Singham who had found that the IGP and police force had covered up Kugan's death in police custody. The notice of appeal is dated 12 Julai 2013 and was served upon me this afternoon as the solicitor for Kugan's family.
The appeal is unnecessary, unjust and causes further suffering to the family of Kugan, and particularly his grieving mother Madam Indra Nallathamby. Home Minister Zahid Hamidi has now ruthlessly carried out the threat he made on June 30 2013 that he would appeal the Kugan decision. It is obvious that Zahid and the government are indifferent to the terrible suffering of Kugan's family and to the fate of countless Malaysians who are victims of torture and abuse in police custody.
In Kugan's case, there is clear evidence of torture and murder by police. In the post-mortem report UMMC pathologist Dr Prashant Samberkar had recorded 52 horrendous injury marks on Kugan's body and concluded that Kugan had been beaten to death. Despite this, Zahid, the A-G and the government have obstinately proceeeded with the appeal. It is clear that the appeal has political motives and is related to the ongoing public clamour for the IPCMC to be set up. Justice Singham himself had called for the setting-up of the IPCMC in his landmark judgement.
We call upon Prime Minister Najib and the government to accept full responsibility for Kugan's torture-murder and to withdraw this appeal. More than 4 years after the killing of Kugan, the suffering family is entitled to some measure of closure.

Whenever Mosque Al-Aqsa is mentioned in the media, it shows the picture of Mosque (Dome of the Rock).
In the first place the 3rd holiest place is not the Dome of the Rock but it is the Masjid Al Aqsa which is close to the Rock. It is the Jewish propaganda to portray the Dome of the Rock to misguide all, especially the Muslims, into believing it to be the Masjid Al Aqsa to divert their attention from it as that is the real Holy place that is being claimed by all the 3 religious groups.
This is quite evident from the article itself "The Dome of the Rock was built in 691 by the Umayyad Caliph, Abd al-Malik". If it was built by Caliph Abd al-Malik then how could it be a holy place that is mentioned in the Quran?
So the incriptions on the Dome of the Rock has no significance to the issue. Nor does it have any effect on the Judeo-Christian and Islam conflict in thought. The simple truth is that the Jews and Christians, despite knowing fully well what their respective Scriptures have mentioned, refuse to accept Prophet Mohammed (SAL) as a prophet and Islam as the religion of Allah. This has been ascertained by Allah in the Quran. So it is not surprising that a conflict exists. In any case, I believe, the conflict has to be there in order for Muslims to be aware of their religion and do their duty and not go astray.
Rather than worrying about the Judeo Christian enmity towards Muslims, it would be more pertinent for Muslims to worry about the conflicts brewing among themselves and the enmity they are creating for themselves. Once that is resolved then the other external conflicts will be resolved too in no time. Insha Allah.
