Prof Muhaya is an eye specialist. Not a psychologist / Islamic scholar / marriage counselor / a professor of sociology or human behaviour.

But our society gave her the platform & money to speak on everything cause we have an obsession with feel-good motivational speakers
Why do our society like to uplift talking heads bereft of intellect, knowledge and critical thinking? Maybe cause getting real experts will reveal hard truths about us we are not willing and ready to accept.

People like Prof Muhaya are dangerous. Lawan lah pembodohan ummah.
I remember in one of her old videos she said those suffering from mental health problems should check if their source of income is halal and their relationship with god, dismissing important factors like repressed trauma, prolonged stress, loss & grief in mental health
our tv channels are guilty of boosting her up by giving her shows with celebrity guests just because people watch her. This same obsession with views minus social repercussion gives birth to shows like Ilmu Rumah Tangga, exploring marriage conflict with a motivational speaker
And what did the motivational speaker stressed on about responsibilities in a happy marriage? Yes, you guessed right, wives should make more effort to look & smell good for their husbands when the husband is the problem (no affection, no help with household chores, less salary)
Until we reject subpar faux-experts as a society and start valuing knowledge and critical thinking, we deny ourselves the opportunity see the likes of homegrown Sheikh Abdul Hakim Murad, Brene Brown, Dr. Saliha Afridi, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee etc
We can do better. Our children deserve better. Stop this cycle of motivational speaker obsession and let’s give space to people with knowledge and insights. Let’s become a thinking, critical society. And maybe then we can raise the collective IQ of the dewan rakyat 🙊

an open secret that no one could raise just a few years ago. In 2018, I visited the lake to do a report on its alarming decay - floating dead fish, horrid smell, and grey, think water - I wanted to interview a prof who lead a research that classified the lake as ‘near dead’...
I got her number and...she didn’t want to be interviewed, she said she had nothing to say. It was the first time I encountered a researcher who doesn’t want to defend/explain their work-didn’t want to be quoted too. interviewed the villagers and indigenous community instead...
On the ride out of the village, I saw a yellow signboard on the side of the street, almost hidden by a fallen tree branch, that says the area is gazetted for mining work. My eyes widen. The driver remarked, “Now you know why no one wants to talk”. A couple of hundred meters...

Good Morning!
Hari ini kita borak mengenai #Felda

#Pahang mempunyai jumlah tanah rancangan Felda terbanyak.

Felda pertama di Malaysia ada di #Bilut #Bentong

Generasi pertama peneroka Felda ada 112,000 dan kebanyakkannya sudah tua dan bersara. #MalaysiaMemilih #HogohUndi
Contohnya macam acik-acik di atas, Halimah Haji Husin dan Maimunah Mat Yaman, 82, dari Felda Lembah Klau, #Raub.

Mereka dah berjiran lebih 50 tahun. Anak-anak sudah berpindah dan bekerja di KL.

#MalaysiaMemilih #HogohUndi
Terdapat 54 kerusi #Parlimen, 92 #DUN yang terletak di kawasan Felda.

Daftar pemilih terkini menunjukkan 570,000 pengundi baharu terdiri daripada warga #Felda.

Lima kawasan #Parlimen dengan pengundi #Felda tertinggi: #Rompin #KualaKrau #Jempol #KotaTinggi #Pengerang

Afternoon warga #Pahang!
Hari ni kome ke #Jengka untuk sebahagian liputan #Felda.

Pahang ada jumlah peneroka paling ramai dan kawasan Felda terbanyak di Malaysia. Selama ini orang Felda menyumbang kepada faktor negeri ini dianggap kubu kuat #MalaysiaMemilih
Persoalannya, adakah #Felda masih lagi kubu kuat #BN?

Fact 1: 12/14 kerusi Parlimen dan 27/42 kerusi negeri #Pahang ada kawasan #Felda

Fact 2: Peneroka gen pertama berumur 65tahun ke atas. 80% penyokong #BN tetapi generasi kedua & ketiga? Mereka lebih ramai #MalaysiaMemilih
Di antara 27 kerusi negeri #Pahang, semua dimenangi #BN kecuali DUN #Bilut #Ketari #Sabai di #Bentong dan #Triang di #Bera. Ini adalah perkara baru.

Namun kita lihat juga populasi bangsa di sini. Triang, Ketari, Sabai dan Bilut adalah mixed seats. #MalaysiaMemilih

#KualaTahan Ini apa yang menimpa penduduk Kuala Tahan pada 13 Mac lalu. Mereka rata-rata adalah pengusaha pelancongan dan risau kesihatan dan perniagaan terjejas kerana pencemaran air. #Pahang #MalaysiaMemilih #HogohUndi
#KualaTahan Puncanya? Pembalakan yang berlaku berdekatan dengan empangan takungan air yang menjadi sumber air untuk lebih 1,000 penduduk di sini. Pada hari kejadian, penduduk dan pelancong sama-sama tak mandi. Kedai-kedai makan tutup.
#MalaysiaMemilih #HogohUndi
#KualaTahan Bila hujan, air lumpur dari kawasan pembalakan mengalir ke empangan. Walaupun pembalakan itu sah, penduduk Kampung rasa ia terlalu berleluasa dan merosakkan alam semulajadi.

Selepas kejadian itu, penduduk ada sesi dialog dengan kontraktor balak & pejabat hutan
