‘D’ is desperation

It is abundantly clear that Gerontocracy Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad days are numbered from the more intense statement from him as the UMNO-PAS charter coming closer to be formalised and he and his party is becoming a minority within the minority of the ruling Government.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad says ‘even the UN charter has been unable to stop wars, what more the Umno-PAS charter’.


ALOR SETAR: Dr Mahathir Mohamad has thrown a spanner in the works on the proposed signing of a formal political pact between the opposition parties Umno and PAS on Saturday.


The prime minister said PAS has to first retract its statement labelling Umno as a party of infidels (kafir) before the two parties can finalise their cooperation with the signing of a charter.


He said PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang has yet to officially retract this statement to enable his party to forge an alliance with Umno.


“Even the United Nations charter has been unable to stop wars, what more the Umno-PAS charter. They were (political) rivals. PAS has said Umno is a party of infidels,” he said with a hint of sarcasm at a press conference here.

The ‘Piagam Muafakat Nasional’, a charter inked between UMNO President Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and PAS President Tuan Guru Dato’ Seri Hj Abdul Hadi Awang in a landmark event on Saturday at Putra World Trade Centre would create not only a new for Malay unity but history for Malaysia.

History has proven that when the Malays became united and unified with a common cause, it change land marked and created history.

Right after World War II, the British came back and decided to formalise the colonisation of Malaya which was a collection of sovereign states before invasion of Japan, with the introduction of the Malayan Union.

HRH Malay Rulers were forced to sign and accept the Malayan Union, which was brought forth by High Commissioner Sir Edward Gent. HRH Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Sultan Abu Bakar of Johor was the First Malay Ruler to ink the agreement on 1 Dec 1945.

The Malays came in droves to protest the Malayan Union, after one by one Malay Rulers were corerced to accept Gent’s plan.

They organised the First Malay Congress on 1 May 1946, which HRH Sultan Hishamuddin Alam Shah of Selangor addressed the congregation. In his titah, HRH Sultan Selangor reminded the assembled Malays about the threat of their position, custom, hereditary powers and most of all, Islam.

By 10 May 1946, the third Malay Congress was organised in Istana Besar Johor Bahru, under the auspicious of Sultan Johor.

On 11 May 1946, all attended and the representation of 29 NGOs agreed for the charter of the creation of United Malays Nationalist Organisation.

UMNO became the forefront of the Malay struggle.

There on, in July 1946 HRH Malay Rulers, Gent and UMNO leaders started a series of consultations and negotiations with derived the Federation of Malaya Agreement inked on 21 Jan 1948.

It is a landmark agreement, which became the basis of the Federation of Malaya Constitution.

Federation of Malaya came into force on 1 Feb 1948 and ceded the Malayan Union.

Persekutuan Tanah Melayu came into effect on 1 Feb 1948.

The key ingredients of FMA is identity indicators that together make up the HRH Malay Rulers sovereign DNA — the individuality of the Malay States, the Malay Sultanate, Islam, the Malay language— became part of the constitutional legacy that was inherited by the FMA and re-seeded into the Merdeka Federation of Malaya Constitution, which came into effect on 31 Aug 1957.

There on, it UMNO changed its cry of ‘Hidup Melayu’ to ‘Merdeka!’.

What is interesting, the Communist Party of Malaya heightened their rebellion and terrorism and on 16 July 1948, the Malayan Emergency was declared.

On 27 July 1955, the first Federal Consultative Council election was held. The Alliance Party (UMNO-MCA-MIC) won 51 out of 52 seats contested.

83% of the votes cast in the first free election were by the Malays.

It is fair to conclude the Alliance Party received a thunderous landslide near 100% percent because the Malays were unified and gave YAM Tunku Abdul Rahman the full force of mandate.

Self rule then was established where YAM Tunku Abdul Rahman was appointed the First Chief Minister of Malaya. He then appointed his Cabinet of Malayans.

With this mandate came about two significant events:

1. The Baling Peace Talks 28-29 December 1955.

Chin Peng and CPM rejected Tunku’s offer for peace and amnesty.

2. The negotiations for Kemerdekaan beginning Jan 1956.

The Federation of Malaya Independence Agreement was inked between Chief Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman and Secretary of State for the Colonies Alan Lennox-Boyd at Lancaster House, 8 Feb 1956.

Thereon, the Federation of Malaya Independence Act was inked by HRH Malay Rulers and British High Commissioner Sir Donald McGillivray onbehalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth at King’s House on 5 Aug 1957.

The Malayan Emergency did not end till July 1960, after more than four years of Malayan self rule and three years of Kemerdekaan and as a sovereign nation, is a member of United Nations.

It was said that Gerontocracy Prime Minister Dr Mahathir received a briefing recently that at best, at the moment only 30% of the Malays support his leadership and his ruling party.

The professional advice also saw even that position in waning and sliding away, from the series of turnout of events such as Anti-ICERD, Adib’s death, Royals, Sekolah Tahfiz, Tulisan Jawi, faux pas of Chinese leaders, Zakir Naik and the more recent, ‘Buy Muslim First’ campaign.

Sources said a Tan Sri law enforcement chief, who was instrumental in the ousting of Prime Minister Dato Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak’s administration and BN’s defeat in 14GE uttered “If there is a GE now, PH is sure to lose!”.

The cracks within leadership of all PH component parties, also adds to the fragility of PH’s and undoubtedly, Gerontocracy Prime Minister Dr Mahathir’s position.

  1. Unfortunately, Mahathir’s spanner is too old and too rusty to even make any dent to the wheel of Umno-Pas Charter wheel. Given the right lubricant, the Wheel will crush PH to dust.
