Slap own chest, what do you fancy?

The minority pretending to be obtuse, is actually very aloud taking on against the Malay-Muslim majority without providing the proper basis, context and intonation and most importantly, cited in the stand-alone perspective not withstanding its lengthy history and mitigating circumstances of origin reflected in the provisions that became the basis when this nation was found.

Commonly known as Federation of Malaysia Constitution and the ‘Social Contract’ between HRH Rulers and the rakyat, prior to getting the Whitehall approval in  achieving Kemerdekaan.

Yet, of late the minority in sundry came up with all sorts of complaints and raising controversies which some of them tantamount to provocation and making grouses when the Malay-Muslim majority respond, if not reciprocate.

Malaysia, a nation of strangers

BY ELIZABETH ZACHARIAH
MAY 02, 2014

The raid on the Bible Society of Malaysia by Jais means all places of worship are subject to monitoring by Jais. That excessive authority bothers law professor Shad Saleem Faruqi. – The Malaysian Insider pic, May 2, 2014.
Around the world, the walls of racial and religious separation are being dismantled, but in Malaysia, they are fortified by overzealous people, a constitutional law expert told a forum today.

Noting that racial and religious polarisation in Malaysia has reached alarming levels since the 90s, Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr. Shad Saleem Faruqi said the country has become a “nation of strangers”.

“Our children are being taught not to say ‘Rest in Peace’ to people of different faiths, they are told not to go houses of those of other religions, otherwise their faith will be threatened.
“Extremism has become mainstream and moderation is seen as capitulation to other races and religions, and as a betrayal of one’s own community,” he told some 20 law students at the forum organised by the National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) in Kuala Lumpur.

The forum was held to consult the youths on whether the replacement of the Sedition Act with the Harmony Act was the answer to restore unity in the country.

It was mooted by NUCC member Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah (pic), who is also Global Movement of Moderates chief executive officer.

Other speakers included Lim Chee Wee, the deputy chairman of NUCC’s working committee on law and policy, and political secretary to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, Vincent Wong.

In his speech, Shad pointed out that the Constitution, even in its ethnic provisions, sought to avoid extreme measures and provided for a balance between the interests of the Bumiputera and non-Bumi communities.

“Article 153 was about affirmative action for the weak and not about racial exclusiveness or racial superiority or ketuanan Melayu,” he added.

“If we read about the making of the Constitution, we will see that our forefathers were animated by a remarkable vision and optimism of a shared destiny among the various people of the peninsula. They gave every community a stake in the nation. No group received an absolute monopoly of power or wealth.”

However, in reality, the law professor said overzealousness prevailed and in some areas, racism has been institutionalised.

“Affirmative action under Article 153 has metamorphosed into something else that is not easily possible to defend under constitutional theory,” said Shad, who is also Universiti Teknologi Mara’s legal adviser.

“It is a selfish attempt to secure advantages for oneself under the guise of Article 153.”

He said in the current situation, an incident that bothered him the most was the January 2 raid of the Bible Society of Malaysia by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais), and seizure of 321 Bibles in Bahasa Malaysia and Iban languages which contained the word ‘Allah’.

“What bothers is me is this – it means that all places of worship are subject to monitoring by Jais. No one should be given this authority.

“As if fighting with other religions is not enough, we have to fight among ourselves,” he said referring to hate campaigns against Muslims who are labelled liberals, deviationists and Shias.

On the Sedition Act, the law professor said the definition of the act was broad and does not distinguish between government and nation.

“Unconstitutional laws are the order of the day, but I think this law has to go. We need a new law to bring parties together through reconciliation,” he added.

He, however, expressed optimism that the recent slew of racial and religious intolerance will pass.

“History never moves in a straight line. I am optimistic that this madness will not last. Whether or not it will sadly take an explosion for us to learn, I don’t know, but it will pass,” he said, citing a revamp to the educational system and criminalising hate speeches as suggestions to restore unity.

Meanwhile, Lim, a former Bar Council president, said the new law should encompass elements of intention to commit crimes motivated by race, religion and ethnicity.

He also stressed that equality was one of the most important themes of the new law, adding that the scale of public discourse is narrowing because of selective prosecution.

“There is, then, a need for a new law to address this,” he added. – May 2, 2014.

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

In the right perspective, all of these issues and controversies raised directly against the Malay-Muslim majority or indirectly via systematic and sometimes structural attack against Federation of Malaysia Constitution and HRH Malay Rulers, have been intensified the past six or seven years.

Simply summarise, apostasy cases (in the likes of Lina Joy), provocations against Articles 152, 153, 3(1) and 11(4), prosetlysation of Malay-Muslim, prohibition of kalimah Allah by Non Muslim entities and many more, have been grossly overbearing.

On  top of that, all of these have been manipulated into political overtone. Any attempts for the authorities and/or Malay-Muslim majority trying to act or even rationalise using the Federation of Malaysia Constitution, have been grossly and graphically illustrated as ‘racism’ and ‘the majority victimising and oppressing the minority’.

There is no need to go into great details. The article itself is shamefully imbalanced as the opinion and perspective of the Malay-Muslim majority have not been sought at all.

In the realism of nation-building and community development in the first have century of nationhood, all of these instances highlighted by these selective individuals were not really a problem. The minority actually abused advancement of technology in their sordid attempt to portray that they are ‘Being oppressed by the majority and their rights have systematically been denied’.

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

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

It is the rights of the majority who have been denied. They are the ones who provided the thumping majority voice of democracy which enabled Kemerdekaan been achieved and a Westminster-styled constitutional monarchy has been adopted.

A large portion of the majority of those serving in the armed forces and security agencies have always been from the majority. Thus, the number of those killed and died in the line of duty correspond directly with the composition of ethnicity in these high risk services.

It is no surprise that the majority who holds minority control of the economy have been systematically and categorically subjected to unfair practices and multiple barriers to entry when they sought opportunities in the open market. Particularly in certain sectors of the commerce.

Yet, they are subjected to the suffering resulted from the openness and liberty of market economy which provided all the space for speculative trading. In this instance, the ability to own decent property in urban areas.

Dwelling is a component of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

It is very naive to expect the Malay-Muslim majority to not reciprocate accordingly when things they hold on very close to their hearts, have also been challenged. Accommodation have its limits.

  1. Those buggers making fun of the national flag should be made to stand with their heads down, then dragged to the Police lock up, interrogated for days and days to determine if they have any connection with communist, subversive or terrorist groups, finally dragged to the Court and charged under as many laws as possible.

    ISA is no more but SOSMA is there. And so many other laws under the Penal Code.

    The Judges should find them guilty of disloyalty to the country, withdraw their citizenship and if no country willing to accept them, just let them stay in this country as Stateless people, like their forefathers had been for 150 years before Merdeka.

    If those buggers are dead, find their relatives, watch them like members of terrorist cells are watched by the Police Special Branch.

    • The Constitution says all citizens must be loyal to King and country – YDP Agong dan negara. The national flag represents the Agong and the country Malaysia. Those not respecting it are disloyal.

      Get SOSMA on them. SOSMA doesn’t allow bail upon arrest. While behind bars, brainwash them with loyalty and patriotism. Submit a report to the Judge at the trial. Jail term duration should be based on response to the brainwashing. This is not political, this is criminal – disloyalty to King and Country.

      Those who condemn the loyalty and patriotism brainwashing – ask them to jump into the South China Sea. Or throw SOSMA at them, too. IGP has just recently said he is satisfied that there are enough laws to deal with crimes in the country. After SOSMA was used on the SAMM bloke. Damn effective. Got the PKR Vice President lawyer bloke jumping at its efficacy as a tool against criminals.

  2. What an asshole interpretation using bombastic English terms.
    Tau ke dah 2014?
    Your spinning is so childish in the eyes of those who know.
    When are you going to martabatkan Bahasa Melayu.
    Stick to Bahasa Melayu otherwise you make the English Language sounds so bad.
    Where did you learn your English?

    • And you a shithole interpretation using the name Dandy – mine is better lah – Zen. Wanna bet mine is better?

      So, what’s with 2014? Dandy becomes randy? Go see Anwar Al Juburi. How do the words rhyme, nice?

      “In the eyes of those who know” .. you know? What do you know? Pandy?

      And where did you learn your English? I don’t see it as anything exceptional. In fact, pathetic.

      You can’t even paragraph. You an anarchist? Not following the rules, any rules, even paragraphing rules?

      Chhehh.

    • Forgot to say, woi shithole, why are YOU not using BM?

      No harm in commenting in BM to posts written in English – been done many times.

      And Big Dog has many times written posts in BM. But you, coming in here first time, talks shit from your hole.

      Apa daaaaa .. Wanna hear it again? Chhehh.

  3. The minority in Malaysia who already control the economic wealth of the country has also got the political power with the help of Malay-Muslims. Unfortunately these Malay -Muslims in their quest for pittance political power compared to what the minority political power would get ( huge political power + economic power), inadvertently are helping in the creation of an Apartheid system in Malaysia where the economically and politically powerful minority will rule over the majority. The minority has plotted such creations in stages by tinkering and playing with issues of human rights, open and liberal society, capitalist market economy which benefits those who are well endowed in wealth and capital, so called religious equality and tolerance ( as if we have not been tolerant), encouraging Malaysia to be flooded with as many foreigners as possible, encouraging foreign ownership of land and property in Malaysia and many other strategy at diluting Malay political and economic strengths. Once the minority have achieved these, then the power of minority in Malaysia over the majority will be complete. By then it’d be too late for Muslim Malays to turn back the clock. Those liberal Malays who conveniently let go of the special position of Malays will discover they have lost all positions and the meritocracy will turn out to be a Cock and bull trickery of the minority because the more powerful minority will not want to share anything based on merit. Because that is their nature – cold and opportunistic.

    • Intentional or not, an Apartheid system where the economically and politically powerful minority will rule over the majority will not be acceptable in this country at all. UN Secretary General, US Secretary of State, EU Foreign Affairs Chief etc will say “unacceptable” to many international crisis situations, but the Malays may not say so. They didn’t and then the race riots of 13 May 1969 exploded.

      It’s in the nature of the Malays. Peaceful and accomodating, but when taunted too much, they go amok. Goodness, the Malay word amok has been taken into the English language and exists in the Oxford dictionary for over a century. It must be from the incidence when the British first ruled this country, sending James W Birch as their first Resident of Perak, travelling up the Perak River to put up notices of their intention to impose tax on the local populace. He got speared/ krissed to death along the banks of the Perak River at Pasir Salak. .

      It’s a far cry from those days when the Malays had only keris, lembing and tombak and a few canons, were poorly organized etc. Now we have the Police and the Armed Forces that the non-Malays refused to join and are mostly Malays. Well disciplined that they are, when the Army was called in to assist the Police to control the race riots of 13 May 1969, they did it prim and proper. Curfew, shoot on sight and don’t know what else their SOP were at that time.

      The moral of the story is: be reasonable. Don’t be ultra kiasu, demanding more, more and more endlessly, remember the cake is never unlimited in size, and when you take too much, you are eating into the share belonging to the others. Economically it’s already happening and attempts to rectify the situation by NEP bridge-the-gap measures you also want to object and get rid off. No, you pendatang cannot do that and must not try to take political power where you have control.

      It’s been power-sharing, Malay-led all these 57 years since independence and upsetting the status quo will upset goodwill and peace among the races. Especially when you try to do that by less than lawful and not strictly according to the spirit of the Constitution. Read the history of this country properly and fully to know what that spirit is. There is such a thing as quid pro quo for the citizenship right that the Malays agreed be given to you, and for which the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak got their Special Position enshrined under Article 153, which inspired the NEP that you pendatang must respect.

  4. The hard core minority continue to lie that they have been discriminated. They kept harping on things like education quota, not getting discounts in buying houses, but of course they’d not complain about not wanting to join security forces to help defend the nation. We will continue to be avalanche with their endless whining about being discriminated. These are the minority who won’t share what they have but want a share of what little others have. If the little that others have are not given to them they’d lie that they have been discriminated. But they are silent on sharing what they already have with others i. e won’t share. Cold and opportunistic – that is their nature. And yet they say Malays and UMNO are racists. The most unfortunate thing is that there are Malays who agree with the minority that Malays and UMNO are racists and they’d do anything to pander to the minority. Kena tipu bulat -bulat with the Cock and bull trickery of those minority pun they tak sedar and say they are the liberal Malays. They sound to me more like Malays who throw caution to the wind and devoid of strategic minds and long term survival.

    • Yes, the hard core minority continuing to lie that they have been discriminated is one of the less-than-lawful ways of the pendatangs to gain economic plus political power, aided by the Pak Pandir Malays who do not realize or close one eye to the fact that that if ever they had gotten to Putrajaya, Anwar would have been in prison and Lim Kit Siang takes over.

      Who says PAS Hadi will, because PAS has the least number of seats in Parliament. Who says Azizah will, because PAS will not tolerate a woman PM. Remember, Hudud that PAS wants to implement has very little respect for women – double the number of women witnesses is required in cases where women witnesses are involved.

      Being racist is being antagonistic to the rights and interests of other races. Malays fighting for those rights and interests are not racist. But the pendatangs talking about so-called Malaysian Malaysia for decades, wanting equality at the expense of the NEP and the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak are damn racist. Now they are not shouting that subversive slogan openly but are still promoting it quietly and obliquely. Damn them and the DAP.

  5. It’s not uncommon in the human world , minority trying to ruled the
    majority , because in human, majority are not always the strength unlike in the animal world where majority does always implicate strength ,it’s in their nature to stick together among the same kind.

    What goods to be majority in number ,while in reality you are actually a minority ,being subdivided to many affiliation or affinity ,which result minority in reality . Worse still if that subdivided majority didn’t have the mental strength of collective achievement and gold of their own kinds.

    It’s not the strength in numbers that count , but togetherness in strength that matter .

    • You not saying whether pendatang minority wanting both economic and political power in multi-racial formerly Malay Malaysia is ok or not?

  6. There is too much racial under tone. if you come to my hometown in Pahang you will shocked to find the people who have been marginalized. This is not a racial issue it is a class issue. Some of us who belong to this group cannot even afford to meet the requirements of Petrol Stations the specify that only a minimum purchase of RM5.00 will be entertained.

    • No racial “under tone” in the group who cannot afford the minimum purchse of RM5? I don’t think so. I think they are mostly Malays. Maybe you put the racial tone under, somewhere.

      You talking class issue. Careful, communists used to talk about class issues. But proven that even communists got classes – the cadres got many privileges the ordinary guys don’t get. So, the cadres belong to a higher class. So, so-called classless society never existed, ever.

      No mention how they were or are marginalized? Often the Malays are the ones marginalized economically. Grabbings by the rich or well to do, and/or better educated guys (the Chinese) are among the causes of them being marginalized. And, as excuses, they say the Malays lazy etc.

      Only now they know, with NEP opportunities etc, there are Malay millionaires, even 1 billionaire, hundreds of Malay Professors and thousands of Malay PhDs. But we need more and more. Coz we are the majority in this county.

  7. The behaviour of these recalcitrants should be dealt with accordingly to the Law. Their despicable behaviour as though it is only fun and games should be treated seriously by the Governmen If the Government is indifferent to racial insults, deliberate trouble-making, etc anywhere as instigated by hidden hands with tons of money, more ot the same will be ladled out by these disloyal types who become bolder and bolder. The peaceful and loyal majority must impress upon the Government of the day to exercise the rights of all citizens as per the Constitution and the Laws. It is absurd that even though there is hardly any difference in political philosophy but litte ant bites are creatred all the time by those who had tasted the forbidden fruit of power and money and now want some more of the same concomitant with professional troublemakers. Absurd !

    • DS Najib trying to be liberal, like Tun Dol did, gave leeway for the ungrateful ingrates to put out nasty opinions without proof, evidence or justification, spreading hate, anti-Malay, anti-Islam, shouting and street demos, of the kind almost like those that caused the 13 May 1969 race riots.

      Never happened in Tun Dr Mahathir’s time, the nasty fellows of the 50s and 60s having mostly died out, Lim Kit Siang was ISA-ed, Lim Guan Eng sent to prison, hardly any one was emboldened to talk anti-Constitution or against the Sedition laws like happening a lot nowadays. The so-called news portal like Malaysia Kini, Malaysia Chronicle etc are seditious almost every day.

      Najib may take pride in Obama visiting this country but it’s because of the rise of China, the pivot, re-balancing game, more than Najib’s so-called liberalization. No Malaysian is liberal if he does not understand the history of this country, the Constitution – the draft was debated and passed by Parliament – having sensitive clauses protected by the Sedition Act, and the Malays shouting and yelling at his talk of abolishing the Sedition Act and appearance of sidelining the NEP.

      The attractive catch phrase now is: if Najib wants to do away with the ISA-replacement SOSMA, the Sedition Act, the NEP etc, the Malays will ask UMNO to do away with him. I support that fully.

  8. Ms H. When the Master is away, the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP comes out to play !

    The ‘ Open Letter ‘ which was meant to embarass our beloved Malaysia was written by a Singaporean multi-millionaire made and crafted in Singapore the spiritual home of the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP which spiritual leader is the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 16 failed Policies for Singapore. This Singaorean fellow is now the leader of the loud-mouthed minority Chinese who behaved and blabbered as though they meet THE MALAYS ONLY TODAY AFTER LANDING FROM MARS AS TOURISTS – with their sweet words and fancy dress !

    I met my Malay friends in 1954 !

    Why > It is the TPPA without which Singapore is confirmed as a failed State because it needs to conquier and control the RESOURCES RICH HINTERLAND KNOWN AS MALAYSIA. The TPPA is the poisoned chalice for our beloved Malaysia, and the Malays, but worse for the Chinese and the Indians. By signing, Malaysia dies, Singapore gets a RE-BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND LIVES forever and ever !

  9. Having played out all the 36 steps as permitted in ancient history, from 1959 to 2014, the Singapore of the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his failed 17 Policies for Singapore is now dependent entirely on whether our beloved Malaysia signs the death warrant TPPA for herself and give the failed State of Singapore a new lease of life.

    The 1962 Water Agreement was a cinch but the TPPA will be ONE TOO MANY. It is OK if Singapore keeps the barren rock of Pulau Batu Putih for free in exchange for their own created demise through their own bungling.
