Hunting For Bigfoot At Night Probably Not A Good Idea

Published November 6, 2013 by sarawak


From my experience observing Apes like Orang Utan here in our jungle Borneo, I would highly will not recommend anyone to go and search for Bigfoot or Sasquatch at night because all apes creature like monkey or Orang Utan are usually are not active at night. So it probably just a waste of your time if you trying to search Bigfoot at night. Also Apes creature like Orang Utan usually are resting at their nest during night or during rain, and they frequently keep moving too. If Bigfoot is similar to Apes they would probably will not active at night too, by the way this famous Bigfoot photo taken by a witness is also taken during the day. So for Bigfoot fan and researcher who want to search for Bigfoot, I recommend you guy to do the searching during the day.
Just a friendly advice from fellow Bigfoot fan 🙂

America Should Punish Malaysia For Curbing Religious Freedom

Rap M’sia for religious freedom curb, Kerry urged

Various groups want US state secretary to stand-up for non-Muslims and those of other sects during his visit to Malaysia.

PETALING JAYA: Thirteen organisations representing various faiths in the United States have lobbied for US State Secretary John Kerry to rap the Malaysian government for curbing religious freedom.

The group, in a letter dated Oct 2, said Malaysia had presented itself as a model, moderate Muslim-majority country but its politics were often not tolerant of those from other faiths.

“Too often, however, politicians leverage on Islam and manipulate the Malays into believing those of other faiths as the bogey man to draw support from the majority Malay Sunni Muslim population, leaving many ethnic and religious minorities with the looming fear that they would be marginalised and without legal recourse when their civil liberty was violated,” the group said.

However, such discrimination and violation were not only imposed on those of other faiths but also on Muslims of other sects which saw 21 Syiah Muslims detained since last month.

“Non-Muslims and dissenting Muslims are often barred from voicing their concerns, and threatened with death, detentions, or attacks by vandals who had been brainwashed into despising other faiths and sects,” the letter said.

To illustrate the point, the group had bought to the attention of Kerry the various instances such as – marriages between a Muslim and non-Muslim, and parental rights of the children in a divorce where a spouse embraced Islam after marriage – where the Malaysian government had discriminated against the Christians and Hindus.

The group also informed Kerry of the countless Hindu temple demolished or desecrated and the barring of Christians from using the word, “Allah.”

Kerry, currently in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, is expected to visit Malaysia later this week after US President Barack Obama cancelled his trip to this region due to the partial government shutdown in the US.

The letter, initiated by the 13 groups comprising the Shia Rights Watch, American Humanist Association, Americans for Democracy and Human Rights in Bahrain, Free Muslim Association, Hindu American Foundation, Human Rights Law Foundation, and Human Rights Without Frontiers (Brussels).

Other groups include the Imam Shirazi Foundation, International Christian Concern, International Institute for Religious Freedom, Russian Orthodox Autonomous Church of America, Union of Councils for Jews in the former Soviet Union and Venn Insitute.
