“Chin Peng is an enemy of the State” is a decisive titah of HRH Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah of Selangor. Tuanku also issued a stern warning for anyone trying to be funny against national pride and honour, especially for sordid political stunts. This also include the propagation of communism.

Chin Peng is an enemy of the state, says Sultan Sharafuddin

BY TEH ENG HOCK

SEMPORNA: Deceased Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) leader Chin Peng is an enemy of the state, said Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

The Ruler reminded that Chin Peng wanted to turn the country into a communist state.

“Lives of members of the armed forces and policemen were lost, and civilians were killed and suffered as a result of Chin Peng and the communist terrorists’ actions,” he said when visiting the KD Sri Semporna navy base here yesterday (Thursday).

Sultan Sharafuddin, who is also the Royal Malaysian Navy captain-in-chief, expressed hope that Malaysians would learn and understand the nation’s history and not forget its darkest moments during the Emergency.

“Do not trade national pride and honour just for support and popularity,” he said.

Sultan Sharafuddin congratulated the Royal Malaysian Navy for successfully overcoming challenges during Ops Daulat, and called on all security agencies, including the police, armed forces and Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, to cooperate and remain in constant communication with each other to protect the country.

“I want to remind those who tried to be an enemy and sell out the county to foreign parties to be cautious and to repent so that they do not commit this evil act again,” he said.

Sultan Sharafuddin is on a four-day visit to Sabah, and had visited KD Sri Tawau naval base on Wednesday and will proceed to Lahad Datu and Sandakan after Semporna.

He will be visiting the Danum Valley Conservation Centre, Pulau Bum Bum and Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu, as well as the naval staff quarters in Taman Samudera, Sandakan.

***************

The Opposition have demonstrated their anti-Constitution attitude and behaviour by falsely celebrating the Secretary General of Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) Ong Boon Hua or popularly known as Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng as a ‘freedom fighter’.

The fact is that Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng led a rebellion against Malayans and subjected so many into torment, anguish, pain and suffering, for the atrocities and terror inflicted throughout the 54 years till peace was achieved upon the Hadyaii Accord, 2 December 1989.

Opposition Leaders recently travelled to Bangkok to honour the most brutal murderer who led the rebellion that saw tens of thousands of Malayans died and almost equal number of suffer from injuries inflicted by no more than a few thousand CPM rebels. This include hundreds of loyal and honourable servicemen who were maimed and made incapacitated because of the fighting against them.

CPM rebels also inflicted a lot of suffering for the booby-traps and mines installed in the jungles of Peninsular Malaysia.

MP’s wake visit causes stir

QUESTION OF LOYALTY: The move by Jeff Ooi to pay his last respects to Chin Peng in Bangkok comes under heavy fire

GEORGE TOWN: THE presence of a Penang DAP member of parliament and another DAP assemblyman’s special assistant at former Communist Party of Malaya secretary-general Chin Peng’s wake in Bangkok caused a stir.

While Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi had made it clear that he had gone to pay his last respects in his personal capacity, critics said it was still an imprudent decision.

Penang Malay Congress president Rahmad Isahak noted that although Ooi had gone in his personal capacity, he was still an elected Malaysian MP.

“This gives rise to the question of loyalty. He is an elected MP here, and he is answerable to Parliament and to the people who voted for him.

“People might query him and make an issue out of his visit.”

Ooi yesterday said he had gone to pay his respects to the 88 year old in his personal capacity “as an avid reader of Malaysian history”.

“I have no feelings as I didn’t live in the age of brutal war against Japanese invaders nor the civil war during the Insurgency.

“But, I do have strong feelings over how the Thai and Malaysian sides respected the 1989 Hatyai Peace Accord which both countries anchored to fruition.

“All parties who participated in ending the civil war must be accorded due respect as peacemakers,” he said when contacted via Facebook.

Ooi had yesterday posted photographs of his trip to pay respects to Chin Peng, on the popular social networking site.

In one of the photographs, Li Hanming, a special assistant to Penang DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow, was also seen alongside Ooi, paying his last respects to Chin Peng at Wat That Thong Temple.

Chow, when contacted, said Li had also gone to Bangkok in his personal capacity.

“Yes I was aware of Li’s trip. He had gone there in his personal capacity and was neither representing me nor the party.”

Following his death, many leaders have stated that there was no need to honour Chin Peng, who was responsible for the death of thousands during the Emergency period in Malaya decades ago.

Chin Peng, whose real name is Ong Boon Hua, was reported to have died at a hospital in Bangkok on Sept 16 due to old age, a month before his 89th birthday. He was born on Oct 21, 1924 in Sitiawan, Perak.

Meanwhile, Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, who previously refused to comment and wanted to let the government to make the decision on whether the ashes of Chin Peng should be brought back to Malaysia, sang a different tune yesterday when he questioned the decision that had been made by the government over the matter.

Even though Abdul Hadi did not mention any name, his statement when opening the Tambun Pas Markaz Tarbiyah at Taman Mere in Ipoh clearly referred to the former Communist leader.

He also associated the government’s decision as the decision of Umno and mocked the party as jahil (ignorant) for making such a decision.

“When Muslims from Medina invaded Makkah after the Quraysh breached the Hudaibiyah Treaty, Prophet Muhammad forgave the Quraysh even though they had brought much misery to Muslims.

“Here we find it difficult to forgive even if someone has turned into ashes,” he said. Additional reporting by Roshidi Abu Samah

The authorities are vigilant about attempts to bring back the ashes of Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng, to interned in this country. This include the sordid attempt to relive Chin ‘Buthcer of Malaya” Peng’s struggle, to capture the wild imagination of many historically-blind Malaysians as being the ‘True Freedom Fighter’.

GEORGE TOWN: Police have detained a local man, believed to be a Datuk Seri, and a Hong Kong national after they were found with items related to former Communist Party of Malaya secretary-general Chin Peng at the Bayan Lepas International Airport here on Tuesday night.

Checks later revealed the local, 66, and his male Hong Kong counterpart, 59, had 12 pamphlets, a book and eight compact discs on Ching Peng in two luggages belonging to them.

Police also seized a black cap with the five-pointed red star and 11 mini porcelain containers from the suspects after they arrived here from Bangkok, Thailand.

State police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi told reporters the men had arrived on board a Thai Airways flight at 9.50pm.

Acting on a tip-off, we detained the men as soon as they entered the airport’s passenger lounge at 10.30am.

The men, who did not resist arrest, were taken to Bayan Baru police station for interview.

Police checks showed the men had gone to Bangkok to attend Chin Peng’s cremation on Monday.

Abdul. Rahim said the case would be investigated under the Printing and Publication Act, 2012 for smuggling the items which are deemed as illegal since the men did not have prior approval from the authorities to bring the items to the country.

The men were later released on police bail after having their statements recorded.

*****************

The attempt to bring the remains or ashes of Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng serve as a ‘memorial’ for those who would intentionally want to skew history, in the attempts for having the minority over power the majority.

It is important for these minorities to overpower the imaginations of younger Malaysians to not see how history unravelled as Malayan Union was declared, opposed, and overturned, with only political pressure of the Malays as the majority of Malayans in the mid 1940s. The force of Malays from the unity, was also translated behind the strong rallies for HRH Rulers. As such, Britain was forced to negotiate and the Federation of Tanah Melayu Treaty was signed on 21 January 1948.

Perjanjian Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, 21 January 1948

Federation of Tanah Melayu was born. The treaty served as the basis of role and position of HRH Rulers, the Malay Special Rights, Malay as the language and Islam as the religion of the Federation and position and conditions as ‘subjects of HRH Rulers’ are clearly provided in the articles .

According to historian Prof. Tan Sri Khoo Kay Kim, the ‘social contract’ is when HRH Rulers were convinced by then UMNO President and Chief Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra to relinquish their right to absolute monarchy and in turn gave the power to rule to the rakyat under Westminster-styled ‘Constitutional Monarchy’ democracy.

This was achieved after the July 1955 Federal Consultative Council general election where UMNO led the three-party coalition and the Malays, who were 84% of the eligible voters amongst the rakyat gave the Alliance Party an thumping landslide. It was the first form of democracy and self-governant was achieved which empowered Tunku to form a Cabinet to formulate policies, for the administration.

After the self-governing, Tunku wanted to meet Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng. It is obvious the strong majority of the Malays, who were rightful citizens of Federation of Malaya are with him and wanted CPM to lay down their arms. The met at the Baling Talks on 28-29 December 1955. Chin Peng refused the amnesty offer and cannot accept that Malayans did not want the CPM.

What was interesting is that Chin Peng told Tunku that they would end the rebellion if Tunku could earn Kemerdekaan. However, that did not materialise. In fact, CPM continued to wage the war and atrocities against sovereign Malaya (later Malaysia) for another 32 years thereon.

In January 1956, Tunku left for London with his Alliance Party colleagues and after a series of negotiations, Kemerdekaan was achieved scheduled for 31 August 1957. All of these were achieved through the process of consultations and negotiations, without shedding blood.

84% of the eligible voters in the 1955 Federal Consultative Council general election are the Malays, who were 'Subjects of HRH Rulers'.

The Federal Constitution was put in place and came into force when sovereignty was achieved when the instrument of Kemerdekaan was signed.

In order for the minority to come into power, it is imperative that the Malays are weakened. Therefor it is necessary for the influence of Malay nationalists through UMNO in Malaysian politics, history and social landscape are being down played, dismantled and eventually systematically eroded.

Even role and position of HRH Rulers, Islam as the religion and Malay as the language of the Federation of Malaysia are not sparred and currently being systematically challenged, via multiple prongs.

It is without doubt, the Malays played pivotal role in the defense and security of this nation ever since the outbreak of World War II. Post war saw the involvement of more Malays in the Police and army, particularly the Royal Malay regiments to ensure the rebellion of the communist terrorists are foiled.

The attack on Bukit Kepong Police Station on 23 February 1950 where 26 Policemen and women and children are murdered and post Kemerdekaan Kroh Massacre on 18 June 1968, where 17 Field Force Policemen are brutally killed are demonstrations that the communist rebels waged a war against the Malays as security personnel.

Instead, they manipulated the imaginations of the younger Malaysians by portraying Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng, CPM and the leftists were the true opposers and the same time demonise UMNO and HRH Rulers as lackeys of the colonialists. That is reflected in the attempt to blatantly lie in the political process of the late 1940s and celebrating the leftists’ ‘Sang Saka Malaya’ should be true Malaysian flag instead of the Jalur Gemilang.

The Federal Government should uphold Tuanku Sultan Selangor’s titah and the Constitution and take very stern action against these anarchist and Neo Min Yuens, who have been proven to threaten the sanctity of this nation. As for Chin “Butcher of Malaya” Peng, never showed compassion nor remorse for the atrocities he did in the series of war waged against Malayans and later Malaysians, even after British left.
