Let not Malaysia gain a new world infamy and ignominy as a nation which does not know shame for becoming a global kleptocracy
I fully agree with the DAP PJ Utara MP, Tony Pua, that the Minister for Communications and Multimedia, Datuk Seri Said Keruak is “completely untutorable” on the BMF, Bank Negara forex and 1MDB scandals, when Salleh could insist he was right and even brilliant to say that the Bumiputera Finance Scandal in the 1980s is worse than the ongoing 1MDB scandal as the government’s “real exposure” in 1MDB scandal is only RM1 million in its initial paid-up capital.
I tried to help Salleh understand the implications and magnitude of the 1MDB scandal, which for the first time in the nation’s history, has plunged the country into the international infamy of a global kleptocracy, suggesting three separate tutors for him for the BMF, Bank Negara forex and 1MDB scandals but it was in vain for Salleh was not prepared to be educated.
As Tony pointed out, Salleh is spinning a story that even the CEO for 1MDB, Arul Kanda has stopped spinning since a year ago – that the government exposure to the 1MDB scandal is only RM1 million, an incredibly naïve understanding of the 1MDB scandal which even students in schools would not be guilty of.
It is obvious that Najib’s Cabinet Ministers, not very outstanding in their IQs, also feel embarrassed by Salleh’s incredible naivetee, and have virtually given up on Salleh who has shown that he is “untutorable” on the BMF, Bank Negara forex and 1MDB scandals.
This was why the Cabinet at its meeting on Wednesday, discussed the possibility of a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) or some official probe into Bank Negara forex losses more than two decades ago.
If Youth Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin was right on the Cabinet meeting, there was no mention not only of the current 1MDB scandal but also the BMF scandal more than three decades ago. Read the rest of this entry »
Call for new political culture of honest, moral and ethical politics in Malaysia – No politics of fear, no politics of hate and no politics of lies
Thaipusam in Malaysia is a symbol of Malaysia’s multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-religious diversity, which is Malaysia’s greatest asset although there are people who wrongly regard this factor as one of the national ills in the country.
Malaysia can only build a great future and great Malaysian civilization if all races, religions, languages and cultures fully participate and contribute to the Malaysian vision.
In this sense, no one can claim to be a truly Malaysian if he is anti-Malay, anti-Chinese, anti-Indian, anti-Kadazan, anti-Dayak or anti-Muslim, anti-Christian, anti-Buddhist, anti-Hindu or anti-Sikh.
While a Malaysian is a Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan or Dayak, no one can claim to be a Malaysian if he is anti-Malay, anti-Chinese, anti-Indian, anti-Kadazan, anti-Dayak or anti-Muslim, anti-Christian, anti-Buddhist, anti-Hindu or anti-Sikh.
In my 51 years in Malaysian politics, I have never called anyone anti-Malay, anti-Chinese, anti-Indian, anti-Kadazan or anti-Dayak, or anti-Muslim, anti-Buddhist, anti-Christian, anti-Hindu or anti-Sikh as I will in fact be challenging his or her very core existence as a Malaysian!
For this reason, on the occasion of 2017 Thaipusam, I call for a new political culture of honest, moral and ethical politics in Malaysia, involving three Noes – No politics of fear, no politics of hate and no politics of lies. Read the rest of this entry »
