Shocking that after four weeks of controversy, 95% of Chinese and Indian Malaysians not aware there is Jawi in Std. V Bahasa Malaysia textbook for years and that the revised curriculum to introduce Jawi in Std. IV was decided by MCA, Gerakan, MIC, SUPP and UMNO Ministers in Sept. 2015

It is indeed shocking that after four weeks of controversy over Jawi in Chinese and Primary schools, 95% of Chinese and Indian Malaysians are not aware that there is Jawi in Std. V Bahasa Malaysia textbook for years and that the revised curriculum to introduce Jawi in Std. IV was decided by MCA, Gerakan, MIC, SUPP and UMNO Ministers in Sept. 2015.

Now, MCA, Gerakan, MIC and SUPP leaders are loudest in condemning the introduction of Jawi in Chinese and Tamil primary schools, although this decision was taken by their Ministers four years ago in 2015, to be implemented yearly in the revised textbooks from 2017 – 2022.

The Jawi subject controversy was a legacy of the former government, as the final decision on the new textbooks for Chinese/Tamil primary schools to introduce the Jawi subject for Std. 4 pupils in 2020 was made by Education Ministry Curriculum Committee chaired by the then Education Minister, Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid and attended by the then two Deputy Education Ministers, Datuk Chong Sin Woon (MCA) and P. Kamalanathan (MIC) in a meeting of Sept. 21, 2015.

After that it became an administrative matter for the relevant Education Ministry divisions to implement the policy decision of Sept. 2015. Read the rest of this entry »

Call for launching of a “I am, you are, we are Malaysian” campaign or movement on the occasion of the 62nd National Day/56th Malaysia Day celebrations

There have been too much negative vibes in the country in the past 15 months, which have seen the rearing of the ugly heads of distrust, suspicion, fear and hate, as a result of the Internet phenomenon enabling lies, falsehoods, fake news and hate speech to travel at the speed of light to pit race against race and religion against religion.

This is most anomalous for the past 15 months should be a season of hope and expectation of change for the better in Malaysia, with the historic decision of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 to democratically and peacefully change the Federal Government first time in six decades.

Malaysia has been described as one of the six countries where “some light shined through these gathering clouds in 2018” against the backdrop of “13th consecutive year of decline in global freedom”, but these hopes seems to have dimmed suddenly in a matter of 15 months, to the extent that there are claims that the Pakatan Harapan is similar to Barisan Nasional – with a former Malaysian Bar President penning an article entitled: “What we have now is BN 2.0”.

It is fallacious to equate Pakatan Harapan as BN 2.0, disregarding the ground work that has been done for further institutional and political reforms and to transform Malaysia into a top world-class nation of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity, with a “tiger economy” and far-reaching educational reforms.

But the Pakatan Harapan government must heed the increasing impatience of the people that there should be greater progress in the reforms in various aspects of national life. Read the rest of this entry »

Senator Khairul is right if he is asking for safeguards against abuses with regard to MCMC hotline but wrong and utterly irresponsible if he is proposing a “free for all” for hate speech to incite racial and religious distrust, animosity and hatred in plural Malaysia

UMNO Senator who was formerly UMNO Youth deputy leader Khairul Azwan Harun is right if he is asking for safeguards against abuses with regard to Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) hotline on inflammatory speech but wrong and utterly irresponsible if he is proposing a “free-for-all” for hate speech to incite racial and religious distrust, animosity and hatred in plural Malaysia.

Are Malaysians of diverse races and religions more united as a Malaysian people in the past 15 months after the historic decision of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, or are they more polarised and divided?

The answer must be the sad latter, not because the Pakatan Harapan Government in Putrajaya had disregarded its responsibility to unite Malaysians regardless of race, religion or region but because of a vicious phenomenon in the Internet era which has given new wings to hate speech, endowing it with great destructive power especially in plural societies unless checked.

What is hate speech?

Hate speech is defined by Wikipedia as a statement intended to demean and brutalize another, or the use of cruel and derogatory language on the basis of real or alleged membership in a social group. Read the rest of this entry »

Malaysians have a different past but let us unite to forge a common future to make Malaysia a top world-class nation

The past few weeks had been testing times for Malaysians not least for Pakatan Harapan.

For the first time since the historic decision of Malaysians in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 over 15 months ago, questions have been raised as to whether DAP should leave Pakatan Harapan government, to the extent that this was the subject of readers’ comment in a popular news portal.

There is no doubt that there are political forces working to engineer the implosion and disintegration of Pakatan Harapan coalition government in Putrajaya, but those who had plotted to see the end of Pakatan Harapan government by the 62nd National Day on August 31, 2019 are very disappointed that they had failed in their latest stratagem.

They are now reduced to calling on so-called “insurbordinate ministers” to quit or be axed.

They do not realise that the four parties in the Pakatan Harapan had come together despite all odds and different histories in the great patriotic mission to Save Malaysia from becoming a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state, and that the decision of the Malaysian electorate in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 had given the country a chance to reset nation-building policies to become a New Malaysia which is a top world-class nation of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity.

But this is no easy task. Read the rest of this entry »

This is no easy task.

The four parties will be guided by the five pillar-promises of the Pakatan Harapan Manifesto in the 14th General Election to build a New Malaysia so that the country can take its place among the top-ranking countries in the world in human endeavour and excellence, especially as Malaysia is the confluence of the four great civilizations in the world – Islamic, Chinese, Indian and Western.

Malaysia will fail as a New Malaysia which is a top world-class nation of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity if we replace a “win-win” formula of nation-building with a zero-sum mentality

With the Cabinet decision yesterday on the Jawi controversy, there are totally contradictory reactions.

One reaction at one end of the spectrum is best represented by the UMNO Vice President, Khaled Nordin who said that the latest Cabinet decision on the Jawi controversy shows that DAP is the true power behind the Pakatan Harapan government.

At the other end of the spectrum, the DAP is regarded as “having gone from hero to zero in the eyes of the Chinese base” and having betrayed the voters and I have become a “running dog” betraying the rights and future of Chinese Malaysians.

Which version is right?

It is not possible for both allegations to be right although both allegations could be wrong – and there is no doubt that in this case, both such allegations are wrong.

Malaysia will fail as a New Malaysia which is a top world-class nation of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity if we replace a “win-win” formula of nation-building with a zero-sum mentality. Read the rest of this entry »

Call on Malaysians to rise above the fissiparous and centrifugal forces threatening to tear Malaysia apart and reunite to build a New Malaysia which is a top world-class nation of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity

Meminta seluruh rakyat Malaysia supaya mengatasi puak pemisah dan perpecahan yang mahu mengganggu-gugat keharmonian Malaysia dan bersatu padu membina sebuah Malaysia Baharu yang bertaraf antarabangsa dengan ciri-ciri perpaduan, kebebasan, keadilan, kecemerlangan dan integriti

Dua minggu lagi kita akan meraikan Hari Kebangsaan ke-62 pada tanggal 31 Ogos dan sebulan lagi kita akan merayakan pula Hari Malaysia ke-56 pada 16 September.

Dengan itu, mari kita mulakan Bulan Malaysia Baharu bermula esok sehingga 16 September, bagi mengatasi puak pemisah dan perpecahan yang mahu mengganggu-gugat keharmonian Malaysia dan bersatu padu membina sebuah Malaysia Baharu yang bertaraf antarabangsa dengan ciri-ciri perpaduan, kebebasan, keadilan, kecemerlangan dan integriti.

Jika kita lakukan ini, Bulan Malaysia Baharu 2019 akan menjadi sebuah lembaran penting dalam usaha kita untuk membina Malaysia Baharu, yang bertitik awal daripada kemenangan Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 (PRU14) pada 9 Mei, 2018.

Seperti yang sering saya ulangi, misi nasional ini akan mengambil tempoh lebih dari satu kitaran pilihan raya untuk dicapai, kerana Malaysia Baharu tidak mampu terbina dalam tempoh yang singkat. Read the rest of this entry »

Zakir Naik has compounded his abuse of Malaysia’s hospitality by attacking the Chinese Malaysians as “old guests” after attacking the loyalty of the Indian Malaysians

Islamic preacher Zakir Naik has compounded his abuse of Malaysian hospitality by attacking the Chinese Malaysians as “old guests” after attacking the loyalty of the Indian Malaysians.

As reported by Malaysiakini today, Zakir Naik made his offensive remarks about Chinese Malaysians while talking about how Islam had spread peacefully in the region through traders.

Zakir Naik referred to himself as “new guest” and the Chinese Malaysians as “old guests”, declaring that “if you want the new guest to go first, ask the old guests to go back”.

Zakir Naik said the Chinese Malaysians “aren’t born here, most of them. May be the new generations, yes”.

Zakir Naik has trespassed into a territory he knows nothing about to make a totally unsolicited offence.

I do not have the exact statistics but I reckon that the number of Chinese Malaysians born in China today is less than one per cent or totally inconsequential, and that over 99 per cent of Chinese Malaysians are local born and loyal to Malaysia! Read the rest of this entry »

Let all Malaysians celebrate the 62nd National Day with resolve, confidence and commitment to build a New Malaysia of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity to make Malaysia a top world-class nation

I call on Malaysians to celebrate the 62nd National Day with resolve, confidence and commitment to build a New Malaysia of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity to make Malaysia a top world-class nation.

Malaysians took a historic decision 15 months ago in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 to peacefully and democratically transfer power in Putrajaya after six decades, which surprised and shocked not only Malaysians but the world, and now we are in the very challenging task of building a New Malaysia through democratic and not by revolutionary means.

This is a national mission which will take more one general election cycle to complete as a New Malaysia cannot be established overnight.

Recently, fissiparous and centrifugal forces seem to have dominated developments in the country causing dismay, division and disunity.

On the eve of 62nd National Day celebrations, let Malaysians take ownership of the great mission to build a New Malaysia of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity to catapult Malaysia to the ranking of a top world-class nation. Read the rest of this entry »

Mahathir wrong to brand Dong Zong as “racist” but Dong Zong was not right to claim that Jawi lesson for Chinese/Tamil primary school Std. 4 Bahasa Malaysia subject from 2020 was beginning of Islamisation

Perdana Menteri, Dr Mahathir Mohammad salah melabel Dong Zong sebagai “rasis”, tetapi Dong Zong juga tidak betul apabila mendakwa pembelajaran tulisan Jawi bagi mata pelajaran Bahasa Malaysia Tahun Empat di sekolah rendah Cina/Tamil bermula tahun 2020 sebagai permulaan Islamisasi

Perdana Menteri Dr Mahathir Mohammad salah melabel Dong Zong sebagai “rasis”, tetapi Dong Zong juga tidak betul apabila mendakwa pembelajaran tulisan Jawi bagi mata pelajaran Bahasa Malaysia Tahun Empat di sekolah rendah Cina/Tamil bermula tahun 2020 sebagai permulaan Islamisasi.

Kedua-dua insiden ini mengambarkan betapa berat salah faham yang timbul berkenaan tulisan Jawi di sekolah rendah Cina dan Tamil.

Saya berada di Chennai, Salem, Bangalore dan New Dehli ketika kontroversi subjek tulisan Jawi meledak dan taklimat oleh Timbalan Menteri Pendidikan, Teo Nie Ching dalam perjumpaan untuk ahli-ahli DAP Melaka semalam merupakan kali pertama saya mengetahui tentang punca sebenar kontroversi berkenaan.

Terdapat teori-teori konspirasi bahawa kontroversi tulisan Jawi ini didalangi oleh sama ada Menteri Pendidikan, Maszlee Malek atau Perdana Menteri Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad demi tujuan politik.

Pun begitu, hakikatnya, kontroversi subjek itu adalah warisan daripada kerajaan terdahulu kerana keputusan muktamad mengenai buku teks baru untuk sekolah rendah Cina dan Tamil untuk memperkenalkan subjek tulisan Jawi untuk murid-murid Tahun Empat pada tahun 2020 telah dibuat oleh Jawatankuasa Kurikulum Kementerian Pendidikan yang dipengerusikan oleh menteri pendidikan dan dua timbalan menteri pendidikan dalam satu mesyuarat pada 30 September 2015.

Malaysian authorities should not allow foreigners to abuse their privileges of becoming a Permanent Resident to create inter-racial and inter-religious tension and conflict in the country

The Malaysian authorities should not allow foreigners to abuse their privileges of becoming a Permanent Resident to create inter-racial and inter-religious tension and conflict in the country.

It is most regrettable that Islamic preacher Zakir Naik had created mischief in his recent speech in Kota Bharu when he compared the Hindus in Malaysia to the Muslims in India and said that the former enjoyed more than 100% rights in Malaysia compared to Muslims in India.

He further said that it was unfortunate that Hindus in Malaysia, despite the benefits, are more loyal to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi than to Mahathir.

Zakir Naik had cast baseless aspersion on the Malaysian Indian community who have made great sacrifices and contributions to the building of present-day Malaysia and made a most mischievous and deplorable attempt to create inter-racial and inter-religious tension, misunderstanding and conflict in Malaysia.

The Malaysian authorities should act on the most mischievous and irresponsible statement by Zakir Naik.

DAP will be defeated in Iskandar Puteri parliamentary seat and would lose 30 to 40 per cent of our votes in the country if election is held now, and we need time for the people to realise that the DAP has not betrayed them or that we have not given up on our objective of a New Malaysia of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity

DAP akan kehilangan kerusi Parlimen Iskandar Puteri dan mungkin kehilangan sejumlah 30 ke 40 peratus undi jika pilihanraya umum diadakan sekarang, kita perlukan masa untuk rakyat menyedari yang DAP tidak pernah mengkhianati mereka mahupun melupakan matlamat bersama Malaysia Baharu yang berteraskan perpaduan, keadilan, kebebasan, dan integrity

DAP akan kalah di kawasan parlimen Iskandar Puteri dan kehilangan antara 30 hingga 40 peratus undi di seluruh negara jika piliharanraya umum diadakan sekarang.

Inilah tahap salah faham penyokong DAP yang terhadap DAP yang kini berada di dalam kerajaan Pakatan Harapan.

Kami memerlukan masa bagi menjelaskan kepada penyokong kami dan rakyat Malaysia yang DAP tidak mengkhianati dan kami masih belum melupakan matlamat bersama Malaysia Baharu.

Jika benarlah DAP telah mengkhianati perjuangan kami selama ini, adalah mustahil untuk kami mendapatkan semula sokongan rakyat, walaupun selama mana pun masa yang diberi. Malah, sokongan kepada kami hanya akan menjadi lebih teruk.

Setelah berjuang dan berkorban selama berdekad lamanya, DAP tidak akan sama sekali mengkhianati rakyat Malaysia, prinsip-prinsip kami, dan matlamat kami untuk membina sebuah Malaysia yang baharu yang berteraskan perpaduan, kebebasan, keadilan, dan integriti. Oleh itu, para pemimpin DAP haruslah berdaya tahan, bersabar, dan terus komited kepada agenda Malaysia Baharu. Read the rest of this entry »

Malaysian must buckle down to deal with economic and educational problems which have hampered the country’s growth potential

My visit to Chennai, Salem, Bangalore and New Delhi has reinforced me in my belief that Malaysians must buckle down to deal with the economic and educational problems which have hampered the country’s growth potential.

As former Finance Minister and Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) chairman, Tuan Daim Zainuddin said early this week, Malaysia must fix the education system and move ahead to ensure that the New Economic Policy was implemented on a needs-basis rather than race-basis.

He said that the NEP has polarised sections of society and it would be to Malaysia’s peril to disregard this.

He warned that there were groups who had managed to sabotage the NEP with race, religious and linguistic rhetoric.

Daim’s advice should be heeded by all Malaysians. Read the rest of this entry »

Why did MSC fail but Bangalore succeed in becoming a second Silicon Valley?

When I visited Bangalore or Bengaluru, the thought that struck me was: Why did Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) fail but Bangalore succeed in becoming a second Silicon Valley when both set out to be a second Silicon Valley over two decades ago?

This is a question Malaysians should focus on if we want to build a New Malaysia of a top world-class nation of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity which is respected and admired by the international community.

One explanation is that Bangalore became India’s Silicon Valley because of the following factors:

a) Large pool of techies. The city has the highest number of engineering colleges than any other city in the world.

Karnataka is a prime centre of learning, with 16 universities,133 medical training institutions, 134 engineering colleges, and 712 general colleges.

b) Research based platform: It is the ‘science centre’ of India with over 100 R&D centres. Read the rest of this entry »

Bapa borek, anak rintik – if Kelantan PAS Youth had understood my statement which was in simple language why I supported Anas Zubedy’s Open Letter to Zakir Naik to voluntarily leave Malaysia, it would not have made the invitation

I have just arrived in New Delhi from Bangalore and saw news report of Kelantan PAS Youth invitation to a Friday ceramah by Zakir Naik in Kota Bharu.

I can only think of the saying “Bapa borek, Anak rintik”.

If Kelantan PAS Youth had understood my statement which was in quite simple language why I supported Anas Zubeidy’s Open Letter to Zakir Naik to voluntarily leave Malaysia, it would not have made the invitation.

I have never said that one must learn Jawi to be a Malaysian – all I said was learning Jawi did not “make me any less of a Chinese, and may have helped in making me more of a Malaysian”

A friend has sent me a newspaper headline which quoted me as saying: “Learn Jawi To Be More Malaysian”.

I have never said one must learn Jawi to be a Malaysian – all I said in my statement from Salem, Tamil Nadu yesterday was learning Jawi while I was serving my first detention in Muar in 1969 did not “make me any less of a Chinese, and may have helped in making me more of a Malaysian”.

Malaysia is a multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-religious nation and we should leverage on our unique position where the great Islamic, Chinese, Indian and Western civilisations meet in confluence in Malaysia to build a great Malaysian nation.

We must be careful not to fall into the trap of conspirators who want to pit race against race, religion against religion to arouse suspicion, distrust and hatred in our plural society to regain political power and work against the flowering of the best of our multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-religious nation.

Malaysians must develop a new self-confidence, a new “Malaysia Boleh” spirit, to exorcise the contrived or imaginary fears and demons so as to achieve a golden age for Malaysia

Kita semua haruslah membina suatu keyakinan diri yang baharu, satu semangat Malaysia Boleh, untuk kita melawan segala momokan dan ancaman yang dibuat-buat bagi mencapai era kegemilangan untuk Malaysia

Saya telah mengadakan perjumpaan dengan rakyat dan pelajar Malaysia semasa lawatan saya ke Salem semalam.

Daripada negara orang, saya telah mengikuti perkembangan semasa di tanah air, termasuklah kontroversi mengenai pengenalan seni khat jawi kepada pelajar darjah empat melalui kurikulum pendidikan Bahasa Malaysia di Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina dan Tamil.

Beberapa persoalan telah timbul dan telahpun dijawab berkenaan dengan isu ini, antaranya:

Adakah menjadi kewajipan kepada pelajar-pelajar di SJK Cina dan Tamil untuk mempelajari tulisan jawi di bawah rancangan baru ini?

Tidak, kerana Kementerian Pelajaran tidak berhasrat untuk melaksanakan ujian atau peperiksaan untuk seni khat ini.

Bilakah rancangan untuk memperkenalkan seni khat jawi ini diputuskan?
Pada tahun 2016 oleh kerajaan Barisan Nasional.

Adakah kementerian berhasrat untuk mendengar pendapat-pendapat lain mengenai perkara ini?

Pihak Kementerian Pelajaran akan meneruskan pelaksanaan rancangan ini, tetapi pandangan daripada pelbagai pihak akan terus didengari untuk memastikan terdapatnya pertimbangan yang adil.

Mungkin soalan yang lebih penting untuk ditanya adalah: Adakah seseorang yang belajar tulisan jawi itu mengkhianati bahasa dan budaya orang Cina?

Pada saya, jawapannya adalah tidak. Read the rest of this entry »

I will not become a second Jho Low, an international runaway from law and order and fugitive from justice

A leader of klepto-theocracy said I should leave Malaysia, and not Zakir Naik.

I thank my old friend K. Seeladass who responded with an account of the May 13,1969 riots and how I came back to Kuala Lumpur to certain arrest despite being advised not to do so.

I did not run away as I did not want to become a Jho Low, an international runaway from law and order and a fugitive from justice.

Despite the lies and falsehoods of UMNO cybertroopers, I was never in Kuala Lumpur during the May 13, 1969 riots. I was at a Kota Kinabalu public rally in aid of the election campaign of the independent parliamentary candidate when I first heard news of the May 13, 1969 riots in Kuala Lumpur.

I was expelled from Sabah as I had criticised the then Sabah Chief Minister, Tun Mustapha Mohamad, at the rally on May 13, 1969 and I was in Singapore for three nights as the Subang International Airport was not operational with the Klang Valley under curfew following a declaration of emergency.

Despite advice by party leaders and family members not to return to Kuala Lumpur, as my name was on the blacklist for Internal Security Act arrest, I took the next available flight to Subang International Airport from Singapore on May 18, 1969 when the airport was re-opened.

Too much obsession with the Prime Minister issue when Malaysians more interested whether the PH promises of a New Malaysia of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity can be fulfilled

I spent two days in Chennai, where I had the opportunity to meet Malaysians and Malaysian students in the Tamil Nadu capital.

Their concerns are also the concerns of Malaysians at home.

Firstly, there is too much obsession with the Prime Minister issue when ordinary Malaysians are more interested whether Pakatan Harapan (PH) government could fulfil the PH promises of a New Malaysia of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity and for Malaysia to be respected and admired by the whole world as a top world-class nation in many fields of human endeavour, whether in good governance in the battle against corruption, far-reaching education reforms in training the workforce for the digital age or in becoming a Tiger economy.

This must be the priority issue of the Pakatan Harapan government and there should be a minimum of diversions from this major task of the PH government in Putrajaya.

I believe Malaysians can understand that it will not be possible to build a new Malaysia and to undo all the wrongs and injustices of six decades in a year or two, or even in one general election cycle, but the country must be set firmly and solidly on the trajectory of a New Malaysia!

Are we doing so? Read the rest of this entry »

Ticked blue by leader of klepto-theocracy preferring Mahathir as PM because he isn’t easily influenced by DAP

Although in Chennai, I am tickled blue by the view of a leader of klepto-theocracy in Malaysia that Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is preferred as Prime Minister of Malaysia as he is not easily influenced by the DAP.

Why did the propagandists of klepto-theocracy so easily forget that they had alleged earlier that Tun Dr. Mahathir had become my stooge?

Malaysian politics is in no-man’s land. On the one hand, Mahathir is alleged to be my stooge, but at the other end of the political spectrum, I am alleged to be Mahathir’s stooge.;

Can these political operatives decide who is whose stooge – whether Mahathir is my stooge or I am Mahathir’s stooge?

Amnesia seems to be a special quality of the leaders, propagandists and cybertroopers of klepto-theocracy.

A few years back, a leader of klepto-theocracy said only DAP defended PAS when the Kelantan state government fell to Barisan Nasional in 1978 and PAS was very grateful.

Now all this is forgotten.

It would appear that apart from misuse of Islam to support thievery, corruption intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods, the proponents of klepto-theocracy needs another quality – political amnesia!

Probably they need also another “quality” – becoming “dumb and dumber” over the years!
