Prayers for Altantuya



Skies open Up For Altantuya At Bukit Gantang

'You were young, just in your 20s. You were supposed to have lived your life but you died by coming to Malaysia. Who shot you? Who placed the explosives on you? Who masterminded it all? Your young son has lost his mother's love...'

And so read the prayer for the late Altantunya Shaariibuu, the Mongolian national who became a household name in Malaysia under the most tragic of circumstances.

This afternoon, several PKR politicians held a short prayer session in conjunction with the Chinese 'Cheng Beng' ritual of commemorating the souls of the departed. Malaysiakini

LYRIC

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they're dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who's wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight
