UTM used to be a hotbed for Islamic fanatics

How I know that? Those lecturers taught in my islamic study class are a role model of religious fanatics, late Ashahari Husin is one of them. To recap, Ashahari is one of top leaders for Jemaah Islam in Indonesia who was killed years ago by Indonesian police.

A lecturer told us that Muslims have defeated the world with this funny logic. Afghans defeated Russians in the Afghanistan war and Russians defeated Americans in the Vietnam war. His conclusion is Muslims have defeated two superpowers, Russia and America.

Militant Leader Noordin Mat Top Buried

PONTIAN, Oct 2 (Bernama) — A regional militant leader Noordin Mat Top, who was killed in Indonesia two weeks ago, was buried in his home village, Kampung Kayu Ara Pasong here Friday.

Noordin’s body arrived at the Nurul Iman Mosque for funeral prayers at 6pm to the shouts of “Allahhu akbar” by villagers before he was laid to rest at about 7pm.

The body arrived at the KL International Airport at about 3pm before it was taken to Pontian by a Malaysian Islamic Development Department’s van and accompanied by the police.

Indonesian authorities handed over Noordin’s body to his first wife, Siti Rahmah Rusdi, who flew it back to Kuala Lumpur today.

After years of being on the run, Noordin, who headed a Jemaah Islamiah’s splinter group, Tandzim Al Qaedat Jihad Indonesia, was gunned down in Kepuhsari, Solo, Central Java by the Indonesian police.

Three other militants were killed in the siege.

Noordin’s children, a boy and two girls aged between eight and 10 years, from his marriage with Siti Rahmah and relatives shed tears as the hearse arrived at the mosque. Several of them fainted.

Villagers and relatives began to gather at his house, some 100 metres from the mosque, since early today after learning that he would be buried Friday.

The police manned the road leading to Noordin’s house and the cemetery.

Noordin, who was known as the “Money Man” of the JI, was said to be the mastermind behind a series of bombings in Indonesia, most notably the Bali blast and the bombing of two luxury hotels in Jakarta recently.
