Tan Sri Rahim Noor: The hero of the Hadyaii Accord

Earlier this afternoon, bloggo-journo Rocky scooped the story about party-less Opposition Leader Anwar “King of Anarchy Politics” Ibrahim was invited by Communist Party of Malaya Secretary General Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng for the 20th commemoration of the ‘Hadyaii Accord’.

Hadyaii Accord, signed 2 Dec 1989

‘Hadyaii Accord’ was signed by the Malaysian Government, represented by the Secretary General of Home Minister Dato’ Wan Sidek Wan Abdul Rahman, Royal Malaysian Police IGP Tan Sri Mohd. Haniff Omar and the Armed Forces Jen. Tan Sri Hashim Mohd. Ali  and Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) was represented by Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng, Abdullah CD and Rashid Maidin  in Hadyaii, 2 December 1989. It marks the end of CPM armed struggle for power, which killed and injured so many Malayans and Malaysians for over 44 years (1945-1989).

During the Emergency (1948-1960), the primary industries dependent Malayan economy was almost paralysed because of the terrorism caused by the barbarics. In the 12 year insurgency, almost 5,000 military and civilians lost their lives to the CPM act of terrorism. 60% of them were non combattant civilians, is a demonstration how brutal the Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng’s guys were.

The communist terrorists also is responsible for the assasination of IGP Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Hashim on 7 June 1974 and Perak CPO Tan Sri Khoo Chong Kong on 13 June 1975, on top of the massacre of the Bukit Kepong Police Station on 23 February 1950 which saw 14 policemen, 8 auxiliary policemen and 4 members of the policemen brutally killed in the firefight. The army, especially the Royal Malay Regiment spend a lot of resources to fight the communist terrorists untill the ‘Hadyaii Accord’.

The architect and chief operation person for the ‘Hadyaii Accord’ was former IGP Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Mohd. Noor. Then Director of Special Branch CP Dato’ Abdul Rahim Noor and his dedicated Special Branch officers patiently worked between Hadyaii and Beijing to reach a point where the CPM agreed on the ‘Hadyaii Accord’. Deputy Minister of Home Affairs then was Allahyarham Tan Sri Megat Junid Megat Ayub where else the Minister of Home Affairs was Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. At the signing, the IGP was then Tan Sri (now Tun) Mohd. Hanif Omar.

The ‘Hadyaii Accord’ mark where the armed struggle of  Malayan Peoples’ Liberation Army (the armed unit of CPM) against Malaysians formally ended and the process of nation building was able to be carried out at a faster pace and magnitude. The growth there on was very appparent. ‘Vision 2020′ was launched by then Fourth Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad which laid out the strategic plan for Malaysia to achieve a developed nation status by the year 2020. The North South Highway, which the single most important infrastructure that spur economic and social growth and progress of this nation which stretches from Johor Bahru in Johor all the way to Bukit Kayu Hitam in Kedah was completed in 1993.

The true hero of the ‘Hadyaii Accord’ is undoubtably Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Mohd. Noor. We Malaysians owe him a huge debt of gratitude of achieving peace, which saw Malaysia able to progress to a level what she is today. To mark the 20th commeration of the ‘Hadyaii Accord’, we wish to record a special tribute for a great Special Branch officer and director.

As a sign of true patriotism, Malaysians should vehemently reject Anwar “King of Anarchy Politics” Ibrahim to bring back Chin ‘Butcher of Malaya” Peng, as a sordid attempt to ride on pseudo-anarchy politics to assume power.

This tribute is also extended to CP Dato’ Zulkifli Abdul Rahman (at the ‘Hadyaii Accord’ was the Deputy Director of Special Branch) and officers and men of the Special Branch for their dedication to provide us the blanket of security.

  1. Words cannot do justice to describe a man who loves his country above everything else.

    Tan Sri, I salute you


    • Sdr Mohamed

      Agree 100%. It is this software that will ensure a nation stays united and strong.

      It is not so much having a well-equipped army, navy, what-have-you.

      It is this ‘semangat bakti dan ketaatan pada negara’ that is priceless.

  2. Terima Kasih tidak terhingga kepada Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor. Jasa Tan Sri akan kami abadikan dalam sejarah Kepahlawanan Tanah Melayu.

  3. It is important that we pay tribute due to Rahim Nor despite the ‘Blackeye’ incident.We are wrong in abandoning this man.We will never know what truly happened then.Afterall he has paid his dues dearly and couragesly like a true gentleman.Many in the PDRM believed that Rahim Nor is a true hero for standing up to Anwar’s verbal abuses.He was simply the last man who will stand up and protect his beloved organisation.It is still not too late to correct this wrong.

    • Oh, I wish to God we can.


  4. My brother was a policeman, till the day he passed away he told me that no one can replace Tan Sri Rahim Noor, he is the man who really cared for the lower ranking policemen!

    Just because og the Mat Letaher King, we abandoned thi good man! Is it fair?

    • It was a moment of weakness, provocation by Anwar “King of Anarchy Politics” Ibrahim who called the Police “Lackey!”. Any dedicated Policeman would have done the same and slug Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim in the face.

      But that is still criminally wrong. The man was convicted in a court of law and served time.

      Regardless, what he did for Malaysia is priceless. The peace we had the past 20 years is irreplaceable. And we all owe it to Tan Sri Rahim Noor, Dato’ Zulkifly Abdul Rahman (then Deputy Director of Special Branch who later assumed the Directorship) and the dedicated Special Branch officers and other ranks for this blanket of security they provided us with their dedication.

  5. My dear friend, the Royal Malay Regiment did fought the communist alone.Please dont ignore the other regiment in the army. We fought together .Please.

    • Thank you.

      By no means did we not acknowledge the other regiments of the army in the fight against communist terrorists. It is just we had a special mention on the Royal Malay Regiment, the oldest and back bone of the infantry.

      We strongly have the opinion that the Royal Malay Regiment be a national icon.

  6. Terima kasih Tan Sri atas jasa besar kepada kami rakyat Malaysia yang cintakan keamanan.

  7. Tan Sri Rahim Noor is a true officer and a gentleman

    I heard what he did for hos country during the upheaval of the ’98 aka black eye episode…Tna Sri, a selfless man volunteered to take the responsiblity for the mistake of his lower rung officer….

    To Tan Sri Rahim Noor, I salute you because you put the nation interest and her people wellbeing above all all.

  8. Segala puji bagi Allah kerana mengurniakan keamanan kepada Malaysia.

    Terima kasih kepada Tan Sri Rahim Noor atas usahanya yang akhirnya diredhakan Allah dengan termeterainya perjanjian Hadyai 1989. Jasamu dikenang..

  9. It is weird when lately, there is a somewhat concerted effort in glorifying these butchers, trying to rename them freedom fighters. These people, idiots, does have the tendency to exploit, in a very convulated way, moments or events in history to their very own sick, twisted agenda. These idiots, are lucky since, these moments or events in history, are only pages in books. Neither of them saw nor felt/suffer the reality of it.

    To all you championing this atrocity, especially you RPK, over my dead body. Especially to you RPK, if you are reading, oh yes, you must be a bit busy hiding, huh… go to court and answer all your fantasized accusations, b@#%*$rd..!!!!

    p/s – sorry Big Guy.

    • Indang

      It is clear that efforts at misinforming the rakyat is ongoing.

      The only way to safeguard this EVIL attempt at brainwashing the silent majority; is for blogs such as BigDog, A Voice, Rocky Bru, Demi Negara, Jebat Must Die and many others to inform and disseminate accurate data and factual documentation to the masses.

      Insyallah, Malaysia will come to no harm, Amin.

      Thank you BigDog and such like-minded blogs.

      • Sdr ray,

        Yes, the bloggers that you mention above, they are the wrriors too at different time and different circumstances.

        They are here because the evil one penetrated the cyberspace.



  10. Dah sifat manusia kita mudah ingat yang buruk walaupun yang baik tu berlambak-lambak.

    My granddad was in the Royal Navy commissioned to the Prince of Wales. He must have done so much to the country that on the eve of Independence at the now Dataran Merdeka, he was given the honor to be the one to turunkan the Union Jack so that the Malayan flag can be naikkan.

    But sadly enuf, I didnt know him as a patriot just a grandpa who selalu marahkan I playing in the bushes and in the longkangs. Now that Im older,its only now that i learn to appreciate him and realize that probably I could never ever be even half the person that he was.

    I guess its true for the rest of us Malaysians, being second and third generations. We only know from what was related and tak tau the real story. We make judgements based on the stories told by those around us. Kalau kebetulan diorang kata Tun Mahathir baik, then perception kita baiklah. Kalau dia kata Anwar Ibrahim hero, kita pun tertipulah jugak.

    I think most of us today is guilty for being malas to dig for the truth. We base our opinions on cerita orang.

    For that matter, may I suggest that we work together to identify some of the remaining first generations, and seek their time to cerita ngan kita what really happened.

    Perhaps that way, we can hear from Tan Sri Rahim, Tun Mahathir even from war vets who can story us apa yg benar-benar berlaku. Its like putting together a jigsaw puzzle of a specific incident from pieces provided by various sources.

    A suggestion nonetheless, but a good one if can be done. We readers can the perhaps contribute questions positively and along the way maybe, just maybe able to see what happened from their eyes.

    • Yeah Ultraman

      Great idea. If not for Chedet.com, I would not know of the existence of the social contract.

      In fact, I am now addicted to the blogs primarily because of Tun Dr Mahathir, when he was “silenced” by the main media.

      Best if the silent majority could be equipped with internet connections so that they are duly informed.

      This way the attempts by those BRAINWASHING agents to misinform, instigate and disrupt Malaysia’s progress can be stopped before damage is done.

  12. Tan Sri Rahim Noor ni memang wirawan terbilang!

  15. BigDog,
    Why the fuss about Chin Peng? Is there more to it than meets the eye?
    Is One Malaysia a conducive atmosphere to seek forgiveness and to forget?
    Chin Peng is a cunning man otherwise he would not have survived that long as the CPM Sec General the post which he has not relinquished and the CPM as a party although procsribed in Malaysia is still intact operating in the various peace villages in South Thailand.
    Is there any sincerity on his part to forgive and forget – none at all. The CPM has a long term policy to partake in Malaysian politics either on their own or in all probability as part of existing political party which enjoys similar platform.
    It may not be known as Parti Komunis Malaya (note it is still Malaya) but for all intents and purposes it will be a party that “fights and struggles in the interests of the rakyat”, sounds very safe as well as very appealing especially to the younger generation.
    Thank you for highlighting the otherwise forgetten issue. And terima kasih also for remembering the “unsung gurkhas”.

    • Sir,

      We Malaysians, particularly the younger generation who benefitted from the ‘blanket of security’ that security personnel provided us, have not thanked them enough.

      The Special Branch did so much to fight against communism. Compare Malaysia to our neighbours, namely Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Phillipines, Indonesia and even Thailand. Had not for their sheer patriotism, dedication and hard work, history would have record things and turn of events very much differently.

      Again, thank you. God bless all of you, defenders of the faith and realm.

  25. […] This ruling would be a relief to many who have been gravely affected by the atrocities committed by Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng and his bandits. History had proven that he rejected the offer for peace, despite the majority of Malayans then already mandated that the way to emancipate the tanahair from the colonialist British was via negotiations and treaty which led to full independence. After Federation of Malaya achieved its independence on 31 August 1957, Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng and his terrorist bandits carried on with their atrocities for another thirty-two-and-quarter years till the Hadyaii Accord was signed on 2 December 1989.
