Tujuan artikel ini diterbitkan sekarang adalah kerana ada ciri2 yg
menarik yg akan saya ulas menyusul nanti. Terdapat byk persamaan kes ini dgn
kes al Maunah N kes AI - iaitu beberapa pehak di beri arahan yg "mengelirukan"
serta pihak yg tidak bersalah diperangkap oleh "misinformation" ini sehingga
mengakibatkan insan2 tertentu dihukum, dibunuh atau diaib sebegitu rupa. Komen
saya akan menyusul.... insya Allah. Yg penting polis sudah dirobotkan oleh
Mahath1r yg berada di cina pada waktu tragedi ini dan PDrM Bkt Aman
menyempurnakan rancangan mahath1r. Siapakah ketua polis masa ini? Cuba teka!
New Facts Concerning Hapus Operation in Malaysia:
I am sending u the 1st hand coverage of Memali, Baling tragedy with the hope that
you will print it N give it as much prominence as possible. For security reasons
I wish to remain anonymous.
Ibrahim, aged 43, was a well respected muslim in Kg Memali, Mukim SiongBaling, in
the state of Kedah. Well travelled N learned in Islam, Ibrahim was a graduate of
Azhar University and had further pursued Islamic post-grad courses in India N
Libya, On his return from the many Islamic centers of the world, Ibrahim worked
for the gov. as a prosecutor in the Religious Division of th PM's Dept.
Simple in his ways he truly was symbolic of clean living, amongst the poorest
people in M'sia. Ibrahim was offered high positions by non Muslim parties if he
forsake his flight for the poor N oppressed but true to his nature, he declined
the comforts of the world in order to serve those who loved God. His life had
been threatened on many occasions with detention N death, which he set aside as
001: About 1935 hours (18/11/1985) at the
Field Force camp at Sungai Petani, Kedah,
3,600 police personnel from several divisions
including the Federal Reserve Unit (Penang
State), Field Force (Senoi Prak), Uniformed
Police, Field Force Commando 69, were all
action-ready, awaiting orders.
The outfit was under the command of a senior
officer from the Police Headquarters (Bukit
Aman in Kuala Lumpur) aided by several junior
officers from Bukit Aman, Kedah, Perlis and
002: At 1945 hours (18/11/85) the senior
officer in command from Bukit Aman issued
orders that the outfit present were to make a
surprise attack upon a communist camp in the
district of Baling, which borders Thailand.
003: At 2005 (18/71185) there was
The Field Force officer-in-charge told the
senior officer from Bukit Aman that Ibrahim
Mahmood is considered by him and his fellow-
officers as a Ulamak, and many of them are his
students. At this juncture, there evolved a
dilemma and silence prevailed.
004: The senior officer-in-charge tried in vain
to contact the Deputy Commissioner of Police,
Bukit Aman He then tried and succeeded in
contacting Musa }Hitam, the !Minister of the
Interior. The Field Force officer-in-charge
Sungai Petani was given the line to speak to
Despite his plea that Ibrahim Mahmood was a
much respected Ulamak, who had done much
for improving the lot of the poor and discarded
people of Kampong Mamali, that he was well-
known and regarded highly by the friends and
foes, yet it became known that the Minister of
the interior ordered that the attack be launched.
Note: Most of the police involved in the
operation were non-Muslims or those who were
indifferent to Islam. The secret operation was
personally given the code name ?Hapus?
(annihilate) by Musa Hitam.
005: 20:45 hours (18/11/85) a party was
organized on the open field at the Field Force
camp at Sungai Petani at which only beer and
alcoholic drinks were served to all units. Some
members of the Field Force Sungai Petani did
006: A: 21:28 hours (18/11/85) a wireless
message was received by the Commander-in-
Charge of Operations ?Hapus,? from the Police
Office Baling that the 10 Field Force
commandos succeeded in entering Mamali that
morning and had returned with a full report on
the situation and the activities surrounding the
Madrasah (religious school) of Ibrahim
Mahmood, which was to be the target of the
007: At 21:47 hours (18/11/85) the different units
begin to move out in stages under the command
of 8 Junior Officers (units) entering Baling in two
The officer commanding the Sungai Petani unit
showed disinterestedness a: that moment. At the
very moment at Kampong Mamali Ibrahim
Mahmood was conducting the religious cla#ses
with about 50 students in attendance which went
on until 23:45 hours, after which some returned
home while most slept at the Madrasah.
008: At 24:00 hours (18/11/85) the
There was much dissatisfaction by the
Sungai Petani unit which still Insisted that the
operation be one to blockade the above-
mentioned area In order make Ibrahim
The Commanding Officer from Bukit Aman
support by another officer from Bukit Aman and
the O.C.P.D Baling did not agree with the stand
of the officers from Sungai Petani as they
believed that the delay might result in a conflict
between the police and the Army which were
stationed at the Malysiat/Thailand border, Baling
, Sik. This was so because about 90% of those
mention army personnel fully supported the
Islamic Movement and Ibrahim Mahmood.
Matters turn to worse again. Again Musa
Hitam was contacted. This time the officer in-
charge was told that Musa Hitam was not
available as he was at some hotel Kuala
Lumpur. In the meantime, the Deputy Minister
the interior Radzi Ahmad was stationed at
Penang Police Headquarters to follow
At Kampong Mamali: A motorcyclist is seen
stopping in front of the arch leading to the
house of Ibrahim Mahmood.
A young man is seen hurrying to the
Ibrahim was awakened and all the 39 others
who were staying during the night in the
Madrasah woke up and began preparing for the
impeding attack by the police. They began to
gather household paraphernalia's like axes,
knives, bamboo sticks, which were sharpened.
The more enterprising among them began to
make ?molotov bombs.? In short each person
had some crude weapon, included in the
"peoples army? were 4 children and 5 women.
Ibrahim then went together with the others to
take water for ablution from the nearby well. This
was followed by Sunnat prayers and Hajat
prayers. This was followed by the recitation of
Sura ?Yasin? and ?Zikr.? Ibrahim Mahmood then
told his brothers-In-islam that he was ready for
shahadat rather than give In or surrender those
who were imbibed with the spirit of Nationalism.
Ibrahim Mahmood asked those present to
leave if they were still in doubt. No one moved,
and the soul-stirring sound of ?Allah-o-Akbar?
pierced the silence of Kampong Mamali,
indicating that all present preferred martyr dom
to ?disguised? slavery.
in the meanwhile, at the Police Station in the
District Baling there was much activity for
making preparation for the impeding attack on
Kampong Mamali -- most the police personnel
were drunk and undisciplined.
009: At 01:00 hours (19/11/85) 3,600
Musa Hitam must still be in the hotel in
Kuala Lumpur as he could not be communicated
with instead all communication was from the
Deputy Minister of the Interior stationed in
Penang. Most of the newly-arrived police
personnel were still with the impression that the
attack was as indicated earlier by the Officer from
Bukit Aman, that is, on a Communist camp. The
contingent from Sungai Petani was very small and
unsure of as to what was to be attacked, this was
gathered from their conversation.
010: At 03:00 hours (19/11/85) Kampong
Mamali has been completely blocked by the
various police units. The uniformed police was
only to man roadblocks to and from Kampong.
The Field Force was directed to the south, the
Federal Reserve Unit to the north and the
Commando 69 (FF) behind the religious school-
cum-house of Ibrahim Mahmood.
011: At 03:36 hours (19/11/85) the senior
officer from Bukit Aman, who was officer-In-charge
of Operations "Hapus," spoke through loud-
speakers from a police truck calling upon Ibrahim
Mahmood to surrender.
There was some discussion in the house of
Ibrahim and it was agreed there would be no
surrendering to injustice even if they appeared in
uniforms representing the law. There was then
heard from within the house "takbir" followed by
the shout of Allah-o-Akbar.
012: About 04:00 hours (19/11/85) a group of
about 30 people, including some women and
children suddenly appeared from the north
running between the Field Force Unit and the
Commandos 69 outfit, carrying with them sharp
objects that were usually used for planting paddy.
It seems they were making a bid to enter the
house of Ibrahim In order to give him their
The men of Commandos 69 in their drunken
state carelessly began to shoot, but missed their
target. The Kampong people began to withdraw
from the scene, seeing the odds were too great.
A little later it was found that a senior officer, a
junior officer and a constable of the Field Force
Unit were hit by the bullets coming from the
Commandos 69 Unit, which was meant for the
Kampong folks, who had earlier appeared.
There seem to be chaos among the police
A meeting was called to resolve the "accident."
The blockade was once again continued. Some
officers from Alor Star tried to put off the blockade
for they believed the consequences would be bad
as Allah had showed signs that their action was
wrong, when 3 of their own police personnel were
killed by police guns. The Commanding Officer of
"Hapus," set the request aside.
The voice of Ibrahim was heard reciting the
Quran and it seemed that Ibrahim was leading
the "Subuh" prayers.
At this juncture, the Commanding Officer of
Operations "Hapus" called for the attack to begin.
He was opposed by some officers, who were
Muslims who requested that the attack be
commenced after the "Subuh" prayers.
014: At 05:59 hours (19/11/1985) the "Subuh"
prayers ended and the blockade was further
tightened. Suddenly the group of Kampong people
who had earlier appeared made a reappearance
now from the tight, heading towards the house of
Ibrahim. They were met heads on by the Field
Force. The group rushing with their clenched fists
and crude Kampong and household weapons
faced the impending death with shouts of "Allah-o-
The Field Force officers, who were still in doubt as
to the object of the attack ordered a retreat - to
be only in a defensive position.
As time went on, the whole operation to
annihilate Ibrahim and those with him during the
early hours of the morning seemed jeopardized by
the rising of the sun. Now, there was no more
secrecy nor the surprise element.
Note: All leading Muslim leaders before the
operation was launched, had been arrested
during the night. We might ask the question as to
whether the darkness of night could hide such evil
015: At 08:15 hours (19/11/85). After getting the
orders from the Deputy Minister of the Internal
Affairs from Penang, the Commanding Officer
ordered the two armored vehicles to attack the
house of Ibrahim. The attackers were met by
"molotov bombs" and this led to their eventual
retreat while firing their automatic weapons at the
At that time, four women and three children ran
out of the house. They had been asked by Ibrahim
to vacate the house as the condition was
becoming critical. These people were soon
outnumbered and captured by the Federal
Reserve Unit. They were then hustled into the
awaiting trucks which were guarded by police
At the same time the attack continued. Shots
were fired in the direction of the house of Ibrahim.
Within the house was heard the call of "Allah-o-
016: At 11:05 (19/11/85) the Commando 69 Unit
was ordered to attack the house of Ibrahim.
017: At 11:36 hours (19/11,85) the men of
Commando 69 Unit managed to shoot themselves
into the house of Ibrahim. There ensued some
scuffling. Ibrahim and his friends fought back with
home-made weapons. Some of the men in the
house began to rush out of the house to fight the
police outside. In the ensuing melee, the police
opened fire at the people, some of whom had
nothing but their clenched fists. All the while,
"Allah-o-Akbar" was at the lips of the fighters.
Many were shot dead while some were critically
Ibrahim himself was attacked by several
members of the Commando 69. Ibrahim managed
to kill one of them, but another shot Ibrahim, the
bullets piercing into the right side of his chest.
Ibrahim fell with his fist still clenched and in an
effort to raise it while from his mouth set forth the
words "Allah-oAkbar." One police personnel from
Alor Star rushed up and put Ibrahim's head on his
lap... It was then that Ibrahim was heard to have
uttered his Last words, "Alhamdulillah, for making
me and my brothers whose life you have taken,
018: At 12:13 hours (19/11/85) the attack
came to an end. Those who were caught were
tied up arid put into gunny sacks. Some of the
Commando 69 men were seen to kick the
dead to see if they were still alive, and some of
them shot at the dead while saying, "To hell with
019: At 13:05 hours (19/11/85) the Commanding
Officer reported back to Penang and later to
020: At 15.00) hours (19/11/85) mopping up
operations ended with those arrested being flown
off in two police helicopters, while those killed
and injured were also flown to be sent to hospitals
in Sungai Petani (the 4 martyred) and Alor Star
(10 martyred, including the body of Al Shahid
021,: At 15:10 hours (19/11/85) about 30
people in army uniforms with automatic arms
arrived in the area facing the house of Shahid
They were in a very angry mood and seemed
ready to confront the huge number of police
there. The Commander of operations "Hapus"
was met by one of the newly-arrived men in
uniform. There seemed to be a heated
The police personnel present was then put on
alert to fight back if the situation became
explosive. Knowing that the odds were against
them, the men in Army uniforms retreated,
saying: "Today is your day, and you can do
anything you like, but remember, another time
shall soon come and we shall face you with our
weapons and in a more even
When we take into cognizance the above
mentioned facts together with the past election
results and the meager edge the Barisan National
candidate won over Ustad Ibrahim, one can
deduce that the whole objective of "Operations
Hapus" was political, namely to get rid UMNO of
Ibrahim Mahmood in - the imminent threat it
faced - mantaining the Bayu/Baling seat in the
Where lies UMNO's priorities after the Mamali
slaughter? If UMNO claims that it is an Islamic
Party then its leaders have committed treason
against God for having masterminded the
ma#sacre at Mamali which led to the martyrdom
of many. If, however, UMNO claims that it is
a Nationalistic Party then its leaders have
betrayed the very basis of its existence by killing
Malays, whom UMNO has sworn to protect. The
action of these UMNO leaders may bring civil war
among the Malays.
Such utter disregard for lives has resulted in
some UMNO members being disillusioned about
the sincerity of their Deputy President. Musa
Hitam seems to want notoriety, been labeled
with. As General Benny Murdani (his Indonesian
counterpart), has. He has been nicknamed as
"political animal" and "Muslim killer".
As a Zionist agent this is expected of General
Murdard, being a non-Muslim, but why Musa
Hitam? UMNO, by such actions has proven that it
is neither for the Malays nor for Islam, though the
names of both have been made the means for
The Chinese and Indian ultras are steadily
converging among themselves, using the
Important Malays as their temporary "champions".
To resolve this deteriorating yet complex matter,
Dr. Mahathir needs now to write about the UMNO
The Aftermath of the Mamali/Baling Tragedy
Kampong Mamali, which was at one time
bustling with life is now deadly silent -- a ghost
town. Most of its inhabitants have fled fearing
police persecution or attest. As many as 159 of its
sons and daughters have been arrested, their
only sin being that they wanted the true Islam.
These people, which included children and the
aged, are being detained in three small rooms at
a detention camp.
The women are mixed with the men. There is NO
facility to pray and the internees are exposed to
humiliation and constant hara#sment.
Babies are not given milk and are seen crying
for their mothers, who have been separated from
Each in turn is given only one bowl of porridge
a day. The critically-injured were sent to the
District Hospital at Sungai Petani and Alor Star.
They were given out-patient treatment, which is
most inhuman. If matters are not changed for the
better more martyrdom will result in the next few
Thirteen of the martyred, including Ibrahim
Mahmood were buried together in their blood-
soaked clothes at a graveyard at Parit Panjag,
Baling. The other martyr, at the request for his
mother was buried in Alor Star.
To Musa Hitam and the Commander-in-Charge
of "Operations Hapus" the case is closed.
The non-Muslims ultras are tickled at the
prospect of an impending civil strife between the
Malays (who are all Muslims).
The Malays have come to realize the dangers
of nationalism and the type of power it may
To the martyred, it is the greatest achievement
of their lives, for they have returned to their
Creator and at the same time have set the right
trend for the Muslims of Malaysia - jointly with
their Muslim brothers across the world, to
understand what it takes to be a true Muslim.
Till today neither the actual number or the names of
those falsely arrested have been published.
Those interned have neither been charged nor brought
before a magistrate as is mandatory by law.
Why has the government not acted similarly in the BMF
Is the Mamali ma#sacre another means of diverting the
people's attention from the greatest day-light "robbery" in
Malaysian history? Billions of public funds were lost and
an honest man was murdered, yet the government was all
hush-hush and lenient that the BMF matter is still an open
affair with no end in sight.
Yet when it comes to a learned theologian, who tries to
help the oppressed and poor, he is so mercilessly haunted
and killed. Where lies the rule of law, justice and truth?
Those responsible for the tragedy of Mamali must be
brought to trial. Malay blood must not be spilled on Malay
land under the false notion that Islam supports "National-
ism". Not only the Pan-Malaysian Muslim Party, but all
Muslims who are worth their name, in and outside UMNO,
have demanded that the government set up a Royal
Commission of Inquiry to thoroughly investigate the
Mamali tragedy and issue a White Paper based upon its
findings for public review. In the meantime, no elections
should take place before the White Paper is issued.
