The report alleging sodomy was filed by Anwar's aide, 23-year-old Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, yesterday.

This latest news is just plain disgusting. Not only because of the matter of sodomy, but because of the desperate intent on some quarters to do whatever it takes within their presumed powers to ensure that Anwar Ibrahim will not rise to become the PM. They know they cannot beat Anwar on a level playing field.

God knows there is no other politician who is working harder than Anwar Ibrahim in Malaysia to address the plight of the common people. With his rigorous schedule globe trotting giving speeches and nationwide traveling, he does not even has time to spend with his family, let alone time for nauseating activities.

Beware those who made these slanders. Be fearful of the prayer of the oppressed - see below.

O God, I place before You my weakness, my helplessness and the little esteem that people have of me. O Most Merciful God, You are Lord of the Oppressed and You are my Lord. Into whose hands will You entrust me? To a stranger who will ill-treat me? Or to an enemy whom you have empowered against me? Even if You so will, it will not matter to me so long as You are not angry with me .... There is no power or strength except through You.
