If someone were to enter your life and wilfully goes about the act of destroying the trust you have built between you and your wife, saying things (true or otherwise) that would bring shame to your own self in the eyes of your own children and wife, what would you do?
And if this someone then continues to inflict more harm and havoc onto your world, a world that has already been through more strife and strain that most family would endure in three of four life times, what would you do to that someone?
I have done things in my life that I would not want others to know because it really is no body’s business but mine! At times I have done those things in order to earn a living. At times it was because I meant to harm those whom I thought (rightly or wrongly) have done harm to me and to those I love. And there are times when the mean streak within me got the better of me and I gave vent to the inner demons within me and did things that has sometimes come back to haunt me later in my life. But that is me. If these people that I have done nasty things to come looking for me to seek an apology or wreck revenge – so be it and I will deal with it as it comes along.
We are all, at some time in our life, guilty of many things. We are all at some time of our life faced with making decisions and choices without the benefit of hindsight. Without having the benefit of full disclosure of all the relevant facts before we make these decisions.
But this is what life is all about. We make our choices and we live with it for better or for worse. Life is difficult and full of challenges as it is. We do not need, nor will we tolerate any undue interference by any one who wishes us ill and harm – physical and emotional harm when we have not done the same to them.
Put yourself in DSAI position. You have just heard that this Rahim Thambi Chik and his stooges had just taken some journalist to Carcosa and shown them pornographic video that they claimed is that of yourself.
Your first reaction would be to ask yourself why he would want to do so? Your gut reaction will be anger and then you will seek to protect your wife and your family from the fall out of this incident. We all know that the immediate reaction to any accusation of sexual conduct, whether true or not, will be horrendous to anyone – not for himself personally but more for what it will do to others – those that he works with, his friends and most important, what it will do to his family.
Just take your self back to the days when this Rahim Thamby Chik was Chief Minister of Melaka. When he realized that he was about to be outed for the rape of an underage Malay schoolgirl.
What do you think would be the first thing that exploded into his consciouness? The embarrassment of having to face his wife and children to explain himself or the possible loss of his post as CM of Melaka? Which comes first?
I think it has to be the embarrassment of having to face his wife and family because he knows he is guilty of raping that underage girl. Compounding that is the reality of having all this played out in the public arena –in the glare of the media, in the face of UMNO’s members (who will certainly be goading him for being caught!) and having to face his peers to explain himself.
Once he is past dealing with his family and his peers then his thoughts would turn to how he would ride out the impending storm. Can he stay as Chief Minister of Melaka? With UMNO? Can he keep his Tan Sri? What will the future hold?
And then along this DAP guy call Lim Guan Eng to champion the underage Malay Schoolgirl at the request of her grandmother. Of course when this happened UMNO started to close ranks…and as each day pass Rahim gained strength as UMNO decided that they would rather harbour a child rapist then allow Guan Eng and DAP to win points at the expense of their own Rahim Thamby Chik.
That this Rahim Thamby Chik is guilty of the crime, as far as Mahathir and UMNO are concern, is just a technicality.…and once this was conveyed to Rahim Thamby Chik then all things fell into place. And all was well.
Guan Eng was thrown into Jail under the ISA and we all know now, many many years later, this Rahim Thamby Chik is Chairman of a Government authority and taking centre stage again in another sordid exercise of winning favours from UMNO involving an area he is familiar with : SEX.
Is the wife he so publicly humiliated in his day as CM of Melaka still standing by him during these “Carcosa Tapes” days because he is now doing it for Bangsa, Ugama dan Negara? Or will she be again transported back to her humilating days in Melaka? Are his children still in touch with him because they have forgiven him for raping that underage Malay schoolgirl? I see Azizah and Nurrul out front in the public glare telling all that they are with Anwar. What about Rahim Thambi Chik’s wife? What about his children? Or has he got more then one wife? I really have no clue of this. What about the wives and family of the other two stooges? Let it all hang out.
How long did it take before Rahim Thambi Chik’s wife could forgive him and allowed him to reclaim his conjugal rights? How long after her Melaka days humiliation was she able to show her face in public? Does she still walk beside Rahim even now? Has he ever cheated on her since that time? Does money and position makes it all more bearable for his family to go through the ordeal. After all he is still a Tan Sri!
This Rahim Thambi Chik should have long ago been thrown to the dogs – if the dogs will have him. Nothing can rub off the stench of sleaze that he carries with him. Here in Australia his name would be on a Sex Offender Registry and he will be hounded by MAKO (Movement Against Kindred Offenders) because nobody wants a sex offender to live near his or her homes. It is no secret that sex offenders; especially pedophiles are likely to re offend. I rest my case.
