Dr. M, Vincent and That Tengku had a same Tok Guru


I could not help but to feel a bit amused to read about so-called one prominent corporate leader meeting Anwar Ibrahim recently. The same Vincent who was deemed to be a part of the conspiracy team to topple and sham Anwar late 90s as claimed by Anwar thousands times.

The article reminded me of someone that I used to know in Dubai few years back. A friend introduced to me a spiritual Tok Guru or ahli Sufi . We call him BN who was one of few that Dr. M had sought for advice before pegging RM to USD during financial crisis a decade ago.

The late BN hailed from Pakistan and highly regarded among those who knew him as a great spiritual leader. His world wide network was extensive including Dr. M, Benazir and surprise, surprise, Vincent and his corporate buddy as well partner-in-crime as mentioned during Lingamgate Royal Inquiry, that Tengku (who was not born as Tengku but later named himself a Tengku even before his father became a Tengku).

I am not sure whether that 'It looks like and Sounds like' Lingam was also one of BN's anak murids. I would not be shocked now to know if he was indeed a member of the spiritual circle.
Personally, I was also impressed with BN with his capability to tell about my life and family tree even it was our first meeting. According to my friend, BN was known to give accurate predictions to a lot of things and events that occured. Hence his closeness with certain world figures.
Everytime he was in Dubai, I would join my friend to chat with BN who did not read newspapers or watch TV but still was very up-to-date with the latest happenings in the world. He spoke in urdu so I had my friend to translate our conversations. I was curious to know a lot of things from the other side of the supernatural world and a lot of questions raised but not necessarily answered.
The story is more interesting as once I was in KL with BN and my friends from Dubai. It was 2003.

In KL, Vincent and that Tengku came over to the hotel to meet their tok guru and even they kissed BN hands humbly. I was informed earlier that those two buddies were also anak murids or followers of this BN but did not really believe it. I would never believe Vincent had a muslim tok guru...would you?
Interestingly, I got to know that both 'It looks like and Sounds like' Lingam friends were not really liked by BN due to their tainted images and activities. However, both had had high regards to BN and I assumed both had also received a lot of spiritual guidance from BN.

It is amusing that these two tokeh judi had a same Tok Guru with our former PM and wonder why this conection was not mentioned during Lingamgate hearing. I am also waiting for Dr. M's biography if he ever writes about BN's influence in his life and how close these three well-known guys are over the years, even to share a same tok guru.

It could be EXPLOSIVE indeed!

Welcome to the Power 100 2008 - The World's 100 Most Powerful Arabs. The list, claimed to be the most comprehensive compilation to date, includes influential Arabs who have had the greatest impact in the past year as sportsmen, doctors, scientists, academics, poets and artists - and many more.

But first, how was the list chosen, you may ask?

Anil Bhoyrul, Group Editor of Arabian Business magazine, explains further:"For the purpose of this year's list (as with every year), we have defined it simply as influence - the ability to influence the thoughts and actions of others," Bhoyrul said. "Or put crudely, if one man dyed his hair green, how many others would follow? The more that did, the more powerful that man is."
