Unity is majority

Crest of the Federation of Malaysia

Unity is the majority of plural Malaysia. Malaysians subscribe to the Federation of Malaysia Constitution and pledge with the Rukunegara.

The Malays are the majority. The Malays were united by the common cause of  ensuring that Malayan Union failed on 11 May 1946. They succeeded. Then with the political force as a majority, the began to move towards the active struggle for Independence. They changed their battle-cry ‘Hidup Melayu‘ to ‘Merdeka’ in 1951. They afirm their position when the worked with the Non Malays for the betterment and managed to ‘power-share’, across the board. Even as the helm of the government, the Malays respected the Non Malays’ right. This was the fundamental premise of the ‘Social Contract’.

The Non Malays became the majority when they agreed to work with the Malays, on the common political platform as ‘Alliance Party’. This partnership proven to be very effective. During the 1955 general election, the UMNO-MCA-MIC managed to get a thumping mandate of 51 out of 52 seats contested for the Federation of Malaya Assembly.

As a reciprocity, the Malay Leadership convinced HRH Malay Rulers to admit almost 1 million Non Malays previously classified as ‘Stateless Persons’. Of course, even though they are part of strategic decision making process, they never failed to adhere to the Leadership. The Malays have held that helm and commanded the mandate of the majority and consistent with the socio-economic developmental process ever since day one.

Malaysia exist on the premise of understanding, respect, tolerance, team work and now, adapting and slowly acceptance. HRH Malay Rulers consented to the wisdom of the Malay Leadership just prior to Kemerdekaan, when the Westminster-style democracy of Constitutional Monarchy for the power to the majority. A sovereign nation of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu was born on 31 August 1957, where the Malays, Chinese and Indians share everything with other minority groupings.

To achieve Malaysia where she is, was never by chance. It was planning and execution. It was about teamwork. It was about ‘give-and-take’. It was about ‘win-win’.

Of course in the process, there were challenges. First it was the war against communist rebellion. Even though Emergency was declared over by 1960, it was not till 2 December 1989 when the Communist Party of Malaya aka “Butcher of Malaya” laid down their arms and conceded to peace at the ‘Hadyaii Accord’.

Then it was the socio-ecenomic desparity and gross imbalance. Coupled with extremism and Chinese chauvinism politics by the DAP and Gerakan post May 1969, a bloody race riots erupted around Kuala Lumpur on 13 May 1969.

13 May 1969 chaos

Malaysians at large detest the episode and vowed to not go through that again.

When the dust of distrust, hatred, inciting and destruction is settled, they worked to correct all that the wrongs. They went down at the root of the prevailing problems. When unity was an issue, Rukunegara was born.

Every stakeholders were consulted (with the exception of DAP) and as a result, the New Economic Policy came into being by 1971. It was by the majority, for the majority.

Malaysia saw religious extremism tried to be sowed and divide. It was the basis of ‘Amanat Haji Hadi’on 7 April 1981 in Kuala Terengganu.

Perjuangan kita adalah jihad, ucapan kita adalah jihad, derma kita adalah jihad. Bergantunglah kita kepada Allah dengan (menghadapi) puak-puak ini kerana kalau kita mati melawan puak-puak ini, mati kita adalah syahid. Mati kita adalah Islam. Kita tidak perlu masuk Buddha, Kita tidak perlu masuk Hindu, Kita tidak perlu masukKristian, Tapi kita menjadi kafir dengan mengamalkan ‘politik suku, agama suku’.

The Malay Muslim-partisan divide became more apparent and some started to move towards militancy. Then the nation saw the bloody ‘Memali Incident’ in November 1985. Religious extremism crept again in slightly different forms when the ‘Al Maunah Heist’ happened in July 2000. Then these extremist minorities’ activity with imported terrorism agenda such as Jemaah Islamiah was detected in 2001.

Majority vehemently rejected this. It was anti-democracy. It was anti-Constitution. It was anti-unity.

Now, there are talk about a new form of minority using religious platform for their narrow political agenda, even though guised under ‘universal values’ of ‘love’, ‘freedom’, ‘human rights’ and ‘progress’. Even the Non Malays/Muslims are complaining of this unhealthy trend.

The majority don’t want these. They want stability. The want progress that comes with stability. They want prosperity that goes a long way with stability. By no means, no single community shall be left from these progress and prosperity train.

When Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Abdul Razak assumed power as the sixth Prime Minister on 3 April 2009, he introduced ‘1 Malaysia’ with the explicit reason for that. It was about harnessing the best of everyone, to move the nation forward in unity and unison.

It was realising the nation’s motto, “Bersekutu Bertambah Mutu”. It was about the majority prevailing. It still is.

  1. It is people like you who make life terrible for others. I am a ‘seasoned’ old man and have seen what is there to see in our country, politically.I have seen politicians and individuals who are willing to resort to any means , including slander and defamation , just to achieve their aims, regardless of their repercussions to the society. It is clear that you belong to this group of people. Apa yang awak nukilkan itu adalah sesuatu yang tidak masuk akal dan menganggap kita ini bodoh dan bangang. Sebenarnya mereka yang berada di Utusan Malaysia itulah yang bodoh dan bangang.Kerana mengutip sesuatu daripada blogger yang tidak bertanggungjawab seperti anda untuk dijadikan propaganda politik. Malang sekali. Harap awak bertaubat dan mohon keampunan dari Allah SubhaWataala kerana mengada-adakan sesuatu yang tidak ada. Wallahuawaalam.

    • I wonder what seasoning you used to be “seasoned”, Old Timer.

      You are commenting on this post. I see no harm in what Big Dog wrote in the post up there. In fact what he wrote are mostly facts, the rest are opinions based on those facts, views that constitute “fair comment”.

      Fair comments are allowed all over the world, old man. Except perhaps China whose language I don’t understand and so I use the word “perhaps”.

      You can always disagree, brader. But point out which part he wrote, why, and give your arguments. That’s how people interact, communicate la.

      Using the word bodoh, bangang and invoking the name Allah tu tak kenalah, betul tak?

      Lucky you use the word Wallahuwa’lam, which means only God knows. But saying it means you are not sure of what you say, isn’t it? See, when I’m not sure, I ask. Like I said I wonder what seasoning you use to make you a “seasoned” Old Timer.

      • You bloody son of bitches. May your soul rot in hell.

    • OLd timer !;

      How come seasoned old man like you ,claimed to have seen everything that hapened in this country and the world are wisely enough claming others view that not in line with you are simply bodoh or bangang.

      OOOp …..!. I forget seeing a lot like you in Mamak shop carrying The New straits Time or The Star probably talking aloud beliving that you know everything.

      My dear , nothing is imposible ,if the Cristian want thiers to be the next PM ,they will be ,and what to stop them ?, people like you, Mr Old timer ,I doubt it ,becouse you are bussy telling others who had that knowledge are stupid.
      What make you so sure that it will not hapened and will never hapened ?, is it’s becouse Hang Tuah had sid it, “Tak kan Melayu Hilang Didunia”.

      • Mana boleh “if the Cristian want thiers to be the next PM ,they will be ,and what to stop them ?”

        Maybe you are not a seasoned old timer but a rough old timer, or an odd thinking young timer. Read the previous blog with nearly 200 comments and you’ll find that your view is an odd one out.

  2. You are still talking? Geezzz…after all you did in your postings, shall I say “I am surprised” that you are not detained under ISA?

    Anyway, dun worry bro. Since u and Utusan writes for BN, they won’t harm u. Bravo!

    Btw, I heard ur fren marahku@blogspot has deleted his blog?

    • Why delete? Only now he think the Utusan headline was so dangerous and damaging? Why don’t he just maintain like BigDog here and defend what he has write?

      p.s. Rocky said marahku@blogspot was hacked ‘last week’. Not last night? Clever eh?

    • You ever considered that Marahku blog was hacked into and now over taken?

      • You want people to believe some expert or even authorities hacks and removes the page so that no prosecution can be made and so conveniently close the case?

        Hishamuddin office and the police will look so stupid and dump if they ‘lost’ those evidence.
        I reckon, not just cool down Marahku, they must kawkaw whack the big dog too!

  3. Salam BigDog,

    I can say for sure the opposition has infiltrated the Christian community, influencing it’s decisions. There was none before. It started with the Reformasi of DSAI and steadily and more visibly after Pak Lah.

    For these irresponsible people, the end justifies the means.

    Thank you

    • “infiltrated the Christian community, influencing it’s decisions. There was none before.”

      Care to justify?

      • Salam BigDog,


        1) Fr OC Lim… 2) PKR fully poster emblazoned VW parked in SFX ( I believe it belonged to the holy items vendors’) at the height of Reformasi/SodomyI… 3) Selangorkini in church compound. Very subtle, no?

        You want some more?

        I give you a final one, not a few months ago my daughter had informed me that her cathecism teacher was speaking about UMNO.

        You know why she informed me?

        Because I tell my children in no uncertain terms to inform me if there was any discussion in politics as I do not condone political activity in church, pro-opposition or pro-BN.

        Thank you.

      • @Freddie Kevin and BigDog


      • Salam Bigdog,

        @Ciku or Cruzeiro or whoever you are.

        You ask, I give. Tak boleh deny.

        And then you promote a link. Is it yours?

        That link is also submitted (by you?) at Must Stop This, so I Must Stop this free promotion of yours.

        And I didn’t bother cos whats the point of checking out a link from no commenter.

        Your comments here and there only asks to justify.

        This is a comment section not a customer service centre.

        Best regards BD

      • Salam BigDog,

        3) Selangorkini in church compound. Very subtle, no?

        * Selangor Times (After going thru my camera pics)

        I did not want to reveal, why to me, incontrovertibly the opposhits are exploiting and influencing, out of respect to protect my church. But this young Ciku wants to force matters and then diam. Depa tahu apa gua cakap ni.


    • Oh..u r back? I heard u went to the MACC office? How’s the visit? Glad to hear that you are alive! Like I said b4, they wont do anything to you since u write for BN.

      Btw, I do believe you still maintain wat u wrote in your articles about christian taking over the country, and blah blah blah. Tat is ur conscience is clear and u hv all the evidence to justify ur articles?

    • ‘the end justifies the means.’ tu tagline Dr. Mahathir. Aku rasa tak elok kita mengkategorikan Dr Mahathir kedalam golongan rakyat yg tidak bertanggung jawab. Ini bakal menguris hati tuan punya blog yg begitu intim dengan anak Tun Dr Mahahtir

  4. I think you should just call yourself anjing instead of bigdog! Why use english when Bahasa is your mother tongue??

    • Tepat. Aku nak komen sikit berkenaan isu ini. Minggu lepas Malaysia telah menjadi kurang stabil ekoran laporan Utusan Melayu ni. Pekara tersebut menjadi perbualan berjuta juta orang dari Sabah hingga ke Perlis.

      Mana bukti dan asas yg membelakangi tuduhan bloggers ni? Ni bukan soal ‘fair komen’ – ni soal ketenteraman awam. Kalau tiada bukti yg kukuh, maksudnya posting tersebut berbaur hasutan.

      Laman blog Marahku dah kena hack??? pandailah kao ni nak meng’spin.’

      • Senang saja anda kata Malaysia kurang stabil, Kok Lanas. Anda fikir Mlaysia ni macam Kampong Dek dekat Kok Lanas tu ke?

      • Bukan sahaja aku. Malah Papa Gomo, bloggers dimana rankingnya lebih tinggi dari Big Dog, turut menzahirkan rasa kecewa dan marah kerana posting yg dibuat Big Dog telah mengganggu keselamatan awam.

        Saya harap bloggers tidak terpanggil utk menggunakkan isu yg sensitif utk menarik hits. Aku harap bloggers ni belajarlah dari GAP ke ataupun dari Papa Gomo camana nak dapat hits tanpa mencetuskan polemik

      • Siapa cakap “telah menggangu keselamatan awam”? Keluarkanlah kata kata diorang disini. Jangan suruh pempaca pergi sana. Kan kita baca blog ini dan buat komen disini.

        Kalau diorang cakap pun, kalau diorang ranking tinggi pun, apa kriteria atau ukuran diorang pakai mengata “telah menggangu keselamatan awam”? Berapa orang pening kepala, berapa orang pengsan, berapa orang tak dapat tidur malam akibatnya? Yang aku cakap ni kriterianya ke?

        Orang berbincang kau cakap “telah menggangu keselamatan awam”! Yang bincag disini takda pun yang mengancam atau gertak nak buat jahat pun. Hanya keluar pendapat. Di pos BD yang komen lebih 200 tu pun, hampir kesemuanya cara baik, tidak mencarut atau memaki hamun. Tidak ada “telah menggangu keselamatan awam”.

  5. Hi BD,

    Zorro wrote a posting addressed to you. Just thought I’d share it here. Take care and be well.


  6. once, again, the stupids are out to play. there is as much One to Malaysia under Najis as there are testicles to the average man..Go figure.

    • The average man has two. Mebbe you have three. Cut one out la. The eunuchs in the Imperial Palaces in China cut both two.

      How about that for an answer? They say tit for tit.

      • Nono, seriously, at least try to be witty? Intentionally or not, you come across as plain stupid. Tat for your tits.

      • Oh yeah? Lost your balls olely? Remember, don’t play play with 1Malaysia.

  7. Papa Gomo, bloggers UMNO yg terkemuka telah menyeru Kementeriaan Dalam Negeri (KDN) mengambil tindakan yg tegas terhadap bloggers Big Dog. Apakah komen kao semua? Setuju tak?

  8. When you have a poster who gives an opposing opinion, immediately you see small dogs rushing over and biting all over the place.


    Just stick to your own opinions, if you have any. Other readers do not need your service to mental aid them.


  9. For smarter readers, please read Sakmongkol viewpoint instead of Big Dog gabbage.

    • You sekongkol with sakmongkol?

      Haba haba haba.

  10. […] here. FYI- Tony is now BigDog’s “Christian” poster-boy …. according to the lying BigDog, apparently, “even the Non Malays/Muslims are complaining of this unhealthy […]

  11. […] Unity is majority […]

  12. […] here. FYI- Tony is now BigDog’s “Christian” poster-boy …. according to a fibbing BigDog, apparently, “even a Non Malays/Muslims are angry of this diseased […]

  13. 1Malaysia is a big bullshit by people like you.. bigdog!
