Time to show patriotism


Malaysian of Chinese ethnicity should rise to the moment and demonstrate their patriotism and loyalty to the nation they so wanted to be treated as equals, in the literal sense. This include coming in droves at Royal Malaysian Police recruitment centers for selection to the law enforcement and internal security agency.

Police relaxes entry requirements to get more Chinese recruits

MARCH 01, 2014

The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) has relaxed several conditions pertaining to recruitment, apart from studying numerous aspects of improvement in its service to lure more Chinese to join the force.

Beginning this year too, PDRM intends to recruit 5,000 Chinese as low-ranking officers, in stages.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Mohd Zinin (pic) said PDRM might review various aspects related to salary, promotion opportunities and others to entice the participation of the Chinese.

“We are targeting about 5,000 Chinese in stages because we need to look at the capacity and our need to provide basic training and courses,” he said.

Mohd Bakri was speaking to reporters after the 2/2013 series Cadet Inspector Course Passing Out Parade Ceremony at the Police Training Centre in Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur, today.

He said currently, the number of Chinese police personnel made up only 1.87% of the total police strength.

Mohd Bakri said the force had also formed a special team to ensure the participation of the Chinese could be implemented as soon as possible.

“So, we have this task force which handles the matter. They will explain to society, especially the Chinese community, on joining the PDRM. We are doing that, this is our initiative, to ensure we get suitable candidates in PDRM,” he said.

Meanwhile, Bukit Aman Management Department director Datuk Seri Fuzi Harun said PDRM viewed seriously the boosting of Chinese participation as the community made up 30% of the population.

“So, less than 2% have joined the PDRM, it does not look good, so we have to improve this figure… to ensure this programme is successful, we will relax the entry conditions,” he said.

Meanwhile, Bukit Aman Personnel (Recruitment) assistant director ACP Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said the exercise for the recruitment of new police constables for the first session this year, would be carried out on Monday.

He said the relaxation included a pass in Bahasa Malaysia at Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia. apart from passing a vision test or by using glasses or contact lenses by obtaining V/6/9.

“We understand the entry requirements, prior to this were too stringent for the Chinese community, namely, credit in Bahasa Malaysia while there are those among them who are not fluent at all.

“So, we consider this situation a special one for the Chinese community,” he said in an interview themed, ‘2014 Special Recruitment Exercise for the Post of Constable to encourage the Chinese community to join the PDRM’ here.

According to Saiful Azly, the relaxation must be made because the current membership ratio in PDRM was imbalanced among the Malays, Chinese, Indians and others.

“Based on statistics, as of December 31 last year, membership was dominated by Malays (90,156 people), followed by Indians (3,659 people) and the Chinese (1,974 people), while the rest were from other communities,” he said.

He said, the lack of Chinese (in the force) was due to several reasons, including salary, which was regarded as still low, while parents did not encourage their children to join the PDRM.

“According to a study, most of them do not realise a constable can bring home RM3,000 a month, if all the allowances are included,” he said.

For the recruitment on Monday, the Chinese were encouraged to download the application form from the PDRM website at http://www.rmp.gov.my, and after filling it out, should send it to the nearest police station or to the Personnel Recruitment Unit at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman. – Bernama, March 1, 2014.


It is pointless for Malaysian Chinese to demand so much from the Police, making a lot of complaints and setting standards for expected service and delivery, when they are unable to do their bit but talk, talk and more talking.

Why should concessions be made the for recruitment of Malaysian Chinese into the Police Force?

If the Malaysian Chinese wants to treated as ‘citizens with equal standings and rights’ in the literal sense, then they should stand up and willing to sacrifice their comfort and risk their lives for the blanket of security at the moment being provided by mainly Non-Chinese.

Malaysian Chinese numbers 26% of the 30 million Malaysian population. They should at least form 25% of the application into the Police Force, at all recruitment drives from the entry level constable to the probationary and degree holders’ inspector selection.

If they are really serious of ‘Malaysian, Malaysia’, then DAP should take this opportunity to shed the ‘Chinese Chauvinism’ and anti-Malay sentiments that they are so synonymous and demonstrate their true spirit of nationalism and patriotism by championing the drives of Chinese youths into Police Force recruitment drives.

Correspondingly, MCA should also do separate specific  programs such as drive for graduates of TAR College and UTAR, to ensure that Chinese youths show up and submit their application. This is without special incentives as per what Deputy IGP Dato’ Sri Mohd Bakri Zinin said that the Police is pondering.

In the first anniversary of the Lahad Datu tragedy, the Malaysian Chinese wouldn’t want to be questioned on how many amongst them were killed and injured in the line of duty lately.

As they watched the development from the comfort of their homes, conveniently criticise and even made cheap pot shots as the nail biting stand off  from the Kg Tanduo aggression February last year unravels, the fact that there was no casualty of Police or Army of Chinese ethnicity demonstrate the unfair heterogenous representation as component of a typical Malaysian society.

It is the right time.

The Malaysian Chinese have this one chance to demonstrate that their magnamity and shed away the ‘kiasu’ mentality that often used to generalise them. The Malaysian Chinese substantial involvement in Police Force, Malaysian Armed Forces services and essential services like Fire Services is the perfect ‘national reconciliation’ which is initiated and driven by them, as the true patriotic citizens of Malaysia.

  1. Kowtow policy again. Whose idea is this? PDRM wants to entice the Malaysian Chinese to enter the service by improving salaries and promotion opportunities? Whoa…special treatment, ah? All these while when the Malays dominate the lower rung police force, why not talk more often about improving their salaries and promotion opportunities?

    • Talk about the unstrategic Malay brains who suggest this ‘enticing formula’. No quid pro quo for Malays to be enticed into Chinese dominated business fields by giving them equal opportunities in those fields?

      • I support the views in the two comments above totally.

    • Me too support the above two.
      It would only down-grade the importance of the National Language. Not good for National Reconciliation. Anyway, hope they teach these personnel proper BM or how to write summons in BM, during training.

      • How can there be National Reconciliation when only one side wants it, the other side(s) bo paluli? Thy don’t care about the Constitution Article 152 on the National Language and insist on Chinese schools and Mandarin, which in south China they reject and demo-ed against.

        And Najib kasi, kasi, kasi, where got Nat Recon possible like that kind? Even Auto Parts Recon cannot get one.

      • Want to Recon, the authorities must use the proper basis, the proper parts lah. Cannot Recon car parts with bicycle parts, maa.

        Najib gives and gives to Chinese schools, even the Malays with huge respect for the Constitution and for Bahasa Malaysia become antagonistic, moo.

  2. Why the hoo haa on recruiting Chinese into the Police Force? They are the kind who has the culture of disliking the Establishment, the Military, the Police, those in China they perceive as foreigners imposing authority on them. Those their ancestors keep telling one generation to another as doing no good to them and forbid their children from joining. Read Chinese history to know such things.

    They will not want to join in sizeable numbers. Remember the hoo haa by the DAP declaring they will arrange for hordes of young Chinese to line up in front of Police/ Military recruiting centres all over the country? What were the results? Nought. If not, why the hoo haa again? By the Police this time?

    For many hundreds of years they have been battling foreigners in China – the Mongols under Genghiz Khan invaded and ruled them harshly for nearly 100 years. The Manchurians (Manchuria a foreign country until after World War II) ruled them from the 17th to the 20th Century. The Japanese ruled for some years on parts of China. The Westerners knocked on China’s doors with guns and canons and humiliated the Chinese under what was called the “Period of Unequal treaties”. The British even forced them to take opium from British India to pay for goods taken out of China, sparking an historical episode called the Opium War. Hong Kong was ruled by the British and was returned to China only in 1990.

    Here, they have got citizenship and think this country belongs to them. Never mind about the Muslim Filipinos wanting a piece of it – let the Malays do the fighting. They think they pay the most taxes and that’s enough. Not realizing that for some time already they pay only 40%, the GLCs pay 40% and the Malays and others pay 20%.

    The Police should just carry on the usual recruitment without the hoo haa. No need to increase the % of Chinese in the population – it’s 23%, not 30%. Just get the few who may want to join the Officers corps and a smattering number to supplement the numbers in CID, SB and such information getting activities to keep track on criminals, subversive and seditious elements in the country. Never mind if the number of Chinese generals is completely out of proportion compared to the number in the rank and file.

  3. Forget it was the Chinese who brought in Maoist style rebellion and caused a lot of suffering and pain to so many Malayans, for a very long time. Forget it was the Chinese who supported this communist armed rebellion as Min Yuens. Forget that it went on for over 54 years and Malayans live in fear and under hostility.

    It is now and the situation changed very little.

    Chinese as the minority is this country hv been rude and kurang ajar to the authorities especially the police far too long. And we as the majority hv been far to soft and accomodating despite the Chinese continuously insult the law and law enforcement agencies, esp the police.

    It is blatant!

    Even on the streets

    They rudely belittle and insult the authority of the police.

    BD is spot on. Its the duty if not moral obligation of the Chinese to do their part for the law enforcement and maintaining security in this country where they prosper so much, multiply their wealth and assets but give back very little.

    Then again what could anyone expect from an ethnic group who hv no qualms of making money through immoral means. Its the Chinese who are the biggest cartel in underworld economy of illegal gambling, prostitution, extortion, Ah Long, drug wholesale, money laundering and eventually, contract assassination.

    Now the police wants to bend backwards, to entice them to join the Police Force?

    Why would the police wants to insult those who volunteer to face hardship and join the Blues all these while? Najib the Felinist populist attitude crept into them too?

    • Yes, Najib felinist, others want to follow being felinist.

      The poor Malay Policemen and soldiers working and getting just a salary. Yet these pendatang want all sorts of incentive nonsense to join the Police and the Army.

      I tell you, I support those who say this kind of people who have no sense of loyalty and patriotism should be asked to migrate, abscond to US where they can become citizens fast if they volunteer to go to war in Afghanistan, Iraq etc. Then see if they are regarded as equal citizens, not referred to as Yellow skin etc.

  4. why not give incentive for example:
    1. for every chinese enroll in this program, please make sure PDRM give RM100,000 to one chinese school
    2. for every chinese enroll in this program, please ensure that got pink slip in government GLCs
    3. or every chinese enroll in this program, please ensure that got a bungalow house in pr1ma.

    after all it is because of their tax money , their hard working and their support that gets the sultan and YDA and najib into power. with chinese policeman every rakyat will get fair and equal treatment. no bribery, no death while in custody and of course, country peace stability index will shoot to the sky.

    the malay policemen and women should stay in the security guard and maid business.

    • You ultra kiasu want everything? Given citizenship, want more, more and more? Ultra kiasu of the highest order? No clue about sharing and sharing alike? About your role and responsibility as citizens? Still uncivilized? Think everybody else as barbarians except hose in the Middle Kingdom, like the stupid Emperors’ palace record keepers of a thousand years ago?

      Which cave have you been living in? Why the hell you came out of the cave? Hounded by elephants and tigers, eh? You should have been eaten alive by them many times over for having those kind of bastardly thoughts.

      Shit talking “with chinese policeman every rakyat will get fair and equal treatment. no bribery, no death while in custody .. country peace stability index will shoot to the sky? Psychotic and deranged thinking, aren’t you? Talking out of your and Amwarul arsehole, eh?

      Chinese history is full of revolts, rebellions and revolutions, bribery and corruption starting even over 2,000 years ago, made rampant by the eunuchs whose balls and rods were cut off to prevent them from kongking the Emperors’ concubines. Even as recent as the 1960s under Mao Zedong, there was the so-called Cultural Revolution, done as a pretext for power-slipping Mao to gain better hold on the Chinese people in China. You want to do the same here? You want the Chinese to start having the opportunity to take all sorts of bribes in this country, too? No enough with perennially giving bribes, now you want to take bribes, too? Like DAP Perak Nga and Ngeh? Do you know that bribery is so bad in China that for a long time the penalty is death? And it’s still endemic in China. And who started bribery in this country if not the Chinese?

      DAP, aren’t you? SOG, you broke every law imaginable every so often since arriving in this country from the 19th century onwards. Thugs, gangsters, secret societies, Min Yuens, Commies, subversives, seditionists. Like you and your comment above. The only way to deal with your kind is to bring back ISA and shove the likes of Lim Kit Siang, Guan Eng etc the moment you blokes sound subversive and seditious. Like you are now. Saying “the malay policemen and women should stay in the security guard and maid business”, damn you.

  5. They want to relax entry requirements to allow others to join the force. I do not like this. Entry qualifications for all Malaysians must be the same.


  6. Herr Grosse Hund,

    Have you been listening in on my phone conversations?

    I was discussing this very subject just yesterday with a diehard DAP Chinese fellow and I criticised him for not encouraging the Chinese to sign up to Tentera and PDRM.

    His response was disheartening – no meritocracy, no encouragement.

    He gave me a few examples of people he knows whose children have dropped out because of the bullying, the lack of encouragement, the lack of meritocracy.

    Maybe PDRM and Tentera should showcase some of their senior non-Malay personnel who have made it? I dunno.

    If we are serious about increasing participation rates in different areas of Malaysian society, I feel we should provide incentives and special treatment. After all, we already have precedent, haven’t we? 🙂

    • And bribe them, too? What ta ….

      Ever heard of the expression “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”? Ever heard of JF Kennedy who said that?

      Ever heard about loyalty and patriotism? Know what they mean? Do the Chinese think citizenship means take, take, and take only, never giving? Is the 40% tax paid by the Chinese sufficient proof of loyalty and patriotism? Is loyalty and patriotism just paying tax? What school did you fellows go to? Chinese schools? Those led by PhD-tipu Yap Sin Tian?

      You fellows acknowledge fully the Ketuanan Melayu and the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak that are enshrined in the Constitution, show meritocracy in Chinese firms employment, promotion etc, then you can talk about meritocracy. DAP aped PAP and Maha Chauvinist and Racist Lee Luan Yew talking about so-called Malaysian Malaysia and equality without even declaring in the same breath your respect and abiding by the Constitution Article 153 etc. DAP caused the race riots of 1969, remember.

      Never mind who you are? You Lee Kuan Yew or Lim Kit Siang ball carriers? What precedent you talking about? Snide remarks, eh? Only slightly different from the wild, unsubstantiated and unjustified accusations that are often used by the Oppo Hippos.

    • precedent, ha?

      Like Obama appointing Caroline Kennedy as US Ambassador to Japan? Out of the blue?

      And Lim Kit Siang appointing his son Guan Eng as Assistant Scretary Sereneral of DAP? Next, he became Secretary General? Any “incentives and special treatment” there?

      precent kupra worak lu.

  7. Agree.why special treatment to Chinese to join police force.

    Why we need to please the Chinese and Indian all the time.What wrong with our Malay leaders.

    Not everybody can become a policeman.We need people with passion and interest.

    • Once in a while I agree with you fully, Malim. Like with this comment of yours. Bravo.

  8. Despite the reality derived from the attitude, the Chinese should view DIGP’s statement as an insult, because they hv been equated just like Bumiputra. All the while the Chinese rampantly generalise the Bumiputra as those who “Dependent on handouts”.

    As such, more and more Chinese treat the Malays as ‘People who can be bought with money’.

    If it takes ‘special incentives’ like “PDRM might review various aspects related to salary, promotion opportunities and others to entice the participation of the Chinese”, then they are just the same.

    They hv to ‘receive subsidy’, to make then do something which most proud citizens are willing to do because of the spirit of patriotism.

    If the Chinese don’t see this as a challenge, then Nasir Safar was right when he quipped them as “Whores”. It is evidently clear from the prostitution business is controlled by them and ‘cha kuat’ or nowadays, “Health Spa”, is a Neo Chinaman ‘entertainment’ culture.

    It’s no more baffling on how so many Chinese politicians and intellectuals cry against ‘corruption’ and conveniently throw the blame against officials, who happened to be the Malays where as it’s them who are the corruptors.

    This is on top of the Chinese who are the capitalists, operators and profiteers of the underworld economy of vice activities.

    In not so direct, the DIGP is stating the fact that the Chinese need to be ‘strategically corrupted’ before they could serve the Police Force.

    • I like this comment – the interpretation.

      I’m disappointed with the DIGP’s move.

  9. Checkmate Bro!

    You want equal treatment you must mud your hands risk your life and defend the dignity of the country! The next foreign attack on Malaysian soil, let them be part of the first line of defense. Next time a major flood occurred let them be part of the evacuation team. Otherwise, don’t talk talk la!

    • Can the DAP and the tsunami Chinese be trusted to fight the enemies of Malaysia beside the other Malaysians?

      Won’t they be shooting sideways instead of to the front?

      The DAP has long been known to be anti-Malay, anti-Islam and caused the race riots of 1969.

  10. What the hack….. Treat Malaysian alike la…koman betul PDRM Kemaruk sangat ke sampaikan maruah bahasa kebangsaan pun di rendah

    Mat Suap

    • Can the PDRM give the break down of applications from 1989 to 2010, and if those applications were acknowledged.Then and only then kita dapat gambar yang benar
