Perkasa, you have done enough

JUNE 2 — As a man of science, I am a sceptic and don’t believe in many things.

But I believe in the spirit of being a true blue, white and red Malaysian, not differentiated by skin colour or religion.

I believe that Malaysians should only be recognised by their citizenship and contribution to the country and not where our forefathers hail from, who’s equal rights are protected and upheld in the constitution.

I believe that this country is blessed and rich enough to be shared by all Malaysians who are mature enough to live together, without being antagonized by politicians every day. Today, politicians appear as a group of selfish, hypocrite Malaysians who lives like a king amongst paupers, burning racial sentiments that brings no benefit to the masses or the nation.

A group that never seems to learn who are the masters and who are the servants in a democratic society.

A group that is proving to be more and more irrelevant every day.

And last but never least, I believe in the power of the pen. A power that can bring out the best in people and break even the toughest of walls. Remember March 2008?

Many politicians have apparently forgotten that the power to change is with the rakyat.

To uphold those beliefs, tough pills and surgery must be prescribed to all.

Firstly, I call for the banning of all racially based NGOs and political parties. They have no business in this country. Perkasa comes to mind along with similar NGOs amongst the Chinese and Indian community.

The leaders and followers who refuse to call it a day should be punished and accorded the same treatment as criminals, traitors who incite hatred and social discord.

Newspapers and media who publish their views should be reprimanded, and, if necessary, their licence revoked.

If jail time is not warranted, they should be confined to inhabited islands where they can interact only with their own kind and of course the apes, should the monkeys be kind enough to befriend them.

They should be made to serve as a deterrent to others who have similar agenda and ideas.

Similarly I call for a single education system that forges the spirit of unity, tolerance and brotherhood amongst school children. Our cultures and languages should be taught in all schools and not selected ones. Boarding schools and universities must be open to all and no special treatments should be awarded except to those who excel academically.

Scholarships must be made available to the less fortunate. The government has no right to deny students with good results financial assistance if it continues to spend money on new palaces, space explorations, submarines, etc. Since our education system has deteriorated, it may be good to up the standards which will translate into awarding lesser A’s to students.

The poor must be accorded help regardless of race and religion. A Malaysian is a Malaysian no matter the skin colour and ancestral origin, no matter how you see it.

Any objections to such suggestions are a threat to our progress as a nation, and to our developing society as a whole.

Tough to swallow? Too bad. No time to mince words anymore.

I have said this before, but let me say it again.

I want my countrymen to be my brothers and sisters, living in an environment that promotes respect, tolerance, and celebration of each other’s differences, and not one that antagonise, suspect and oppress one another. This should be the country where we stand equally tall, speak equally loud and strive equally hard to realise each and every one of our dreams.

Wake up people, surgery is not over yet. I offer no apology for saying this and more.

    Instead of getting adice from a bankrupt politician like IA, Najib should listen to the thinking Malaysian like Dr. Kamal. There is no doubt that Malaysia is becoming less and less competitive in every sense of the word and in many sectors which we use to lead. We have reached the stage of comparing ourselves with many African Nations whose trained brains just acquired the necessary qualification to sail away to some Western countries. If the leadership for the fears of losing a bankrupt politician like AI, then we must realize that it must be very desperate! In desperation, it forgets that the likes of AI is a fading phenomena is a flat world, sooner than later rational people will realize that his act is an act of a drowning politician shouting for attention. He may even be elected again but the voters will regret it. No investor will dare to invest in the constituent he respresents; for that matter in Malaysia because investors are rational people looking for stability not induced chaos or lack of confidence even among its people. in this sense, PR should instigate like characters to shout a little louder as the loss will be that of BN’s.

    Had Dr kamal been sponsored by government for his education, I would consider the money well spent.
