Terbaca komen-komen yang marahkan Ambiga dalam blog ini atau blog-blog yang lain.
Antara yang menarik perhatian adalah komen yang memanggil Ambiga sebagai par**.
Untuk makluman pembaca, rakan blogger MyMassa dah lama simpan maklumat 'sulit' Ambiga. Rasanya inilah masa sesuai untuk kongsi dengan pembaca SIAPA SEBENARNYA AMBIGA. Cuba tengok berita ini.
Kejayaan Ambiga mendapat liputan Brahmin Today, portal mengenai kasta tertinggi dalam masyarakat India. Malah portal tersebut juga mendedahkan rahsia peribadi Ambiga yang tak diketahui umum!
It is indeed a pride to Brahmins worldwide that one among their community was selected by the U.S.State Department among eight women selected from around the world to receive the 2009 Secretary of State's Award for International Women of Courage at the State Department March 11, 2009 in Washington, DC. Award a rare honour for a Brahmin lady.
Ambiga Sreenivasan is the daughter of well-known and pioneer kidney specialist in Malaysia Dato Dr.G.Sreenevasan.Ambiga Sreenevasan was the President of the Malaysian Bar Council who is a high-powered, high-profile advocate for good governance, democracy, and human rights. Elected in March, 2007, Ambiga is the second female Bar Council president in that organization's history. Six months after assuming her leadership, she organized the "March for Justice," in Malaysia's administrative capital, Putrajaya, calling for judicial reform and investigation of a tape allegedly showing a key lawyer fixing judicial appointments and judges' case assignments. Her public actions, and an intense lobbying campaign, led to a Royal Commission and a finding of need for corrective action.
Ambiga has also consistently supported the rule of law during her tenure, condemning the politically-motivated arrests of two journalists, and the government's banning of an ethnic Indian activist group and arrest of its members.For her devotion to the principles of judiciary and good governance she was awarded the title of 'Dato' by His Royal Highness the Sultan of Perak, a state in Malaysia.
Dato' Ambiga's most controversial work is in the areas of religious freedom and women's rights. She has assertively confronted sexism in Parliament, taking her case directly to the public when necessary. "Gender equality is a responsibility of all Malaysians," she wrote in a press release that protested a politician's patronizing remarks. She successfully fought to amend Malaysia's Federal Constitution to ensure that women's testimony would carry equal weight to men's in Shari'a courts. She continues to fight for the religious freedom of women who convert to Islam upon marriage. Under current law, these women are not allowed to return to their original religions on dissolution of the marriage, regardless of the reason for its termination.
As a result of her attempts to find legal solutions to issues that continue to generate inter-ethnic tensions and constitutional problems, Dato'Ambiga had received hate mail, death threats, and had even a Molotov cocktail thrown at her house. Hundreds of people from religious groups and conservative members of the government had protested at the Bar Council building in Kuala Lumpur and called for her arrest.
In a country with a potentially volatile religious and ethnic mix, Dato' Ambiga has indeed courageously persevered in seeking answers from within the rule of law, and worked relentlessly and energetically for that legal and governing structure to be made more transparent, accessible, and equitable to all.She has indeed been a pride to the Brahmin Community in Malaysia and abroad let alone the larger Women Community seeking for greater gender equality.Dato Ambiga is married to Mr.Balasubramanian, grandson of Gemini Studios legend and Ananda Vikadan pioneer the late Mr.S.S.Vasan.The Brahmin Association of Malaysia recently honoured her in conjunction with the Rama Navami celebrations.
Jadi desas desus bahawa Ambiga tidak pernah berkahwin adalah tidak benar.
Kepada pembaca, kalau boleh jangan panggil Ambiga sebagai par**. Dia Brahmin tau.
*Padanlah Ambiga ni nampak kerek sebab kasta dia lagi tinggi dari yang lain. Cuma kesian kepada Melayu-Melayu Unit Amal nampak macam paria pulak bila jaga Brahmin ni sorang.
