TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

THE SOCIAL CONTRACT 3 857

1. I am sorry to have to revert to the social contract issue again because of some disturbing development.

2. Young Malays, including professionals are said to have espoused liberalism and meritocracy. They question the need for affirmative action and the New Economic Policy. They believe that the Malays should compete with the other races. If they fail then they do not deserve the dominant role in the politics of Malaysia. They should accept non-Malay leadership of the country.

3. This view of the young Malays sounds refreshing. Unfortunately these liberal Malays are in a minority. The majority of the Malay professionals and young Malays have hardened their stand on the position of their race since the disaster of 2008. They are incensed especially by the arrogance of the Bar Council. They now question the social contract and reject the need to adhere to it. This sounds almost like the Chinese stand. But the difference is startling and disturbing.

4. They disagree with the Tunku giving the one million citizenship without regard for the conditions for getting citizenship.

5. They say before this the Malays made up the majority of the citizens. They could rule the country by themselves. But the Tunku reduced this Malay majority until they have to depend on non-Malay support. To them the humiliation they are facing are entirely due to the Tunku.

6. This act by the Tunku is part of the social contract. They reject it and they demand that the Tunku’s action should be considered to be against the constitution and should be rejected. They demand that the citizenship given by the Tunku should be withdrawn or nullified.

7. They also question the other concessions given the non-Malay communities, especially the schools and the use of other languages.

8. In short they seem to reject the social contract altogether and to go back to the situation before the leaders of the communities made their bargain.

9. Questioned as to what would happen if the British refused to give independence, they suggested that the Malays resort to armed struggle and co-operation with a neighbouring country. They suggested that we should have formed Melayu Raya together with this neighbouring country.

10. I must admit the retrogression of their viewpoint but this is becoming more current as the debate on the social contract goes on. They are particularly incensed by the Bar Council which seems to them to be questioning Malay rights according to the agreement in the social contract.

11. So far we hear only the non-Malays rejecting the social contract. This is the first time I hear of Malays rejecting the social contract. I think the Government should handle this problem carefully. Otherwise it may become widespread and effect the fragile harmony between the different races.

12. I did not like putting this on my blog. But I have no access to the Government. In any case I doubt the Government would take this twist on the Social Contract seriously. Dato Seri Abdullah would deny that anything is happening.

13. Malaysia had remained stable for half a century because sensitive issues were not publicly discussed. The Government now appears to practice selective freedom of speech. As long as you don’t attack the Government especially Dato Seri Abdullah you may say what you like whether racist or seditious. But if you attack the Government or Dato Seri Abdullah every effort would be made to silence you or to keep you out of the news.

14. The selective freedom is stirring up racist feelings everywhere. Hence the remarks made by the State Assemblywoman from Perak and Dato Ahmad Ismail in Penang. And now we see the support given to Ahmad and his condemnation of MCA and Gerakan leaders by all the 13 UMNO divisions in Penang.

15. I believe racist sentiments among Malays and non-Malays are rising. If it flares up the stability of this country may be affected permanently. We may see political wrangling of the kind we see in several other countries. In the process the economy of this country would be destroyed.

16. This slide must be stopped. No one should disregard the obligation to uphold the social contract.

17. That understanding between the leaders of the three races had served us well. So has the ban on questioning certain provisions in the Constitution.

18. I had tried during my time to balance the treatment of the different races. I had been labeled a racist before. But towards the end of my tenure the Chinese in particular supported me. But throughout I never forgot my obligations to the Malays.

19. Dato Seri Abdullah has tried to placate everyone. He has given one billion Ringgit here, one billion Ringgit there; he has given unknown sums of money to Tun Salleh Abbas and the other judges who had been dismissed in order to placate the Bar Council, he has promised billions of Ringgit for numerous corridors, billions for transport, lower oil prices etc etc. But no one believes him because the promises and fund allocations have not materialised. The fact is that nobody believes him or trusts him. No one has been placated.

20. The racialist trend will continue. I frankly don’t think Dato Seri Abdullah can handle it.

21. What is the solution? Right thinking people must make their rejection of Dato Seri Abdullah’s leadership heard. If we don’t then whatever racial harmony that exist would be eroded and will destroy this beloved country.

    Kepada Tulen on
    Kita Menumpang di Bumi Allah? Kita hanya lalu!!!!
    Banyak Kawan saya dah pun balik ke bumi. Bulan raya dan puasa sahaja sudah 7 orang ada yang tak berapa tua sangat 48-49 tahun!!
    Argument Bumi Allah selalu di gunakan oleh orang yang merampas harta orang lain.
    Cuba bayang kan jika sedang bersawah datang saorang asing Bangla ka Nepal ka dia cakap ini bumi Allah (nampak macam betul) tapi jika dia nak ambil alih tanah itu sudah tak betul.
    Bumi memang hak Allah tapi undang undang manusia maupun undang Allah memperkui hak milekan tanah atau negeri kepada sesauatu orang atau satu bangsa.Itu convetion. Kalau nak tukar kita kena beli,rompak atau rampas secara keras atau halus.
    Itu yang berlaku sepanjang sejarah.
    Buat Masa ini Nepal,Vietnam,Bangla menumpang di Malaysia cari makan………..cuba equate balik pada pendatang zaman silam nampak ka tidak persamaan ini.

    asalamualaikum tun
    1)rasa tiada masaalah utk maintain good racial harmony.
    2)kami dari kecil lagi bergelumang dgn bangsa2 cina india melayu…perkara biasa..
    3)kami beli barang2 runcit dikedai cina, beli roti dgn org india yg kayuh basikal dari rumah ke rumah.
    4)bangsa singh pun ada jual kain2 ela dikampung2 kami. mereka ni kayuh basikal jgak dan mereka bagi bayaran instalment lagi dgn org kampung. rasa kepercayaan antara satu sama lain sudah sedia ada.
    5)sekarang ni pun ok juga racial harmony tu, cuma ia jadi sensitive bila campur aduk dgn politik kot…mgkn ada org menaguk di air yg keruh..
    6)bagi org2 yg macam kami rakyat biasa life dgn kawan2, neighbours dan community yg berlainan bangsa berjalan saperti dulu2 jugak tiada ketegangan mungkin kami hidup dalam komuniti yg bercooperate dari segi kenduri kendara, gotong royong dan ada jawatankuasa penduduk pantau kebajikan semua.
    7)sentiasa bersyukur dpt hidup dlm kumuniti yg tak politikkan kaum.
    8)sekarang ni(di tempat saya lah) nak beli tilam pun ada lori cina round2 kawasan perumahan. nak kitar semulapun ada org india dtg tanya from house to house, nak beli kuih2 pun ada org melayu menjaja2.
    9)pendekkata semuanya convenient so far..tak ada pening2 kepala pun
    10) yg penting jangan salah anggap dan buruksangka. semua nya tolak ansur dan lebih kurang. jawatankuasa penduduk pun terdiri dari semua kaum……..so far ok lah alhamdullillah..

    is it possible Tun will be Prime Minister once again? it is not the matter whether u want or not but i just want to know under Malaysian Parliment whether u can be PM again or not?
    sometimes….i wonder Tun be PM again and “kill” and “slash” all those people who are not perform.

  9. ordinaryperson Sep 19,2008 11:19 AM

    Dear sir,
    Forgive me for my overly simplistic view on the issues about “social contract”. I don’t really know what is the term & conditions of this so called “contract”. In fact, how can you call this a “contract” while it is not even a written document? The Constitution is the only contract that I can see & read about when it comes to the terms & condition which entails with the Malaysian citizenship. Nothing else.
    Anyway, today’s situation has changed. What happened in the past, remained as that: past. Lets remember that as a lesson and move on. Today, we just want to be treated with equality. Every person is equal before God. Why are we here trying to justify otherwise? Who do we think we are?

  10. kwing Sep 17,2008 11:03 AM

    please dun dwell on the past, wake up malaysians, is all about future. even china is forgiving japan, african american forgetting their slave past, aborigines in australia has accepted white apology, vietnamese is forgiving americans, and go on and on and on. Young educated Malaysian is living in harmony, only people with their own agenda bring out the past. Please once again, wake up, tun vision of 2020 is still achievable.

    Saya Setuju 100% dengan artikal yang dipaparkan oleh tulen yang ditulis oleh syed imran. SEDAR la pemimpin semua terutama Pak Lah agar jangan berdiam diri dengan Datuk ahmad Ismail itu.
    Tun sendiri pun dua kali lima. Berani buat tak berani mengaku. Kenapa komen saya tempoh hari tidak di siarkan? Ada kah Tun pun takut dengan bayang sendiri?
    Memang tidak dapat dinafikan Tun adalah Bapa Moden Malaysia tetapi pengaruh Tun telah menurun dengan mendadak apabila org UMNO sendiri menolak Tun dengan bulat bulat.
    bukan la semua tapi secara terang terang la tu. Saya percaya Tun adalah se orang yang pintar dan bijak dalam soal politik tapi dengan scenario sekarang Tun sepatutnya menolong reda kan keadaan dan bukan menaruh di air yang keruh. tepuk dada tanya selera.
    Tun,
    Dimasa Tun menjadi PM, Ramai yang Tun senyapkan dengan ISA dan tidak dinafikan pulak api kalau dipadamkan awal tidak akan merebak tapi Pak Lah nak tunjuk sikap cool dia pulak dengan bertindak slow dan tidak adil sebab penasihat dia sengaja nak jatuhkan dia.
    Walau apa pun saya harap Tun dapat lepaskan Coretan saya ini untuk paparan semua. Jangan kita keruhkan keadaan. Kita sepatutnya bersikap positif dalam menandatangi masalah besar yang dihadapi negara sekarang iaitu isu perkauman.
    HENTIKAN LAH DENGAN SEGERA SEBELUM TERLAMBAT. ISU PERKAUMAN TIDAK BOLEH DIBESARKAN KERANA SEPERTI API. KECIL jadi Kawan BESAR jadi LAWAN.
    TUN, You ada remedinya. TOLONG LAH HENTIKAN dan bukan BESARKAN.
    TQ Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad.

    Antara pendatang dan penumpang
    oleh Syed Imran
    (former press secretary to Minister in PM’s Department)
    Pada mulanya saya agak keberatan nak ulas kekecohan yang berpunca ekoran daripada kenyataan ketua UMNO bahagian Bukit Bendera, Pulau Pinang bernama Ahmad bin Ismail. Sama ada benar atau tidak apa yang didakwa dikatakan olehnya mengenai rakyat Malaysia keturunan Cina bukan persoalannya kerana isu tersebut sudahpun merebak dan mengapi-apikan keadaan.
    Jika tidak ditangani dengan cermat, teliti dan bijak, isu itu boleh ditangguk dalam air yang keruh oleh anasir-anasir yang ingin melihat negara ini hancur serta mengundang campur tangan kuasa asing. Dalam zaman dunia tanpa sempadan dan liputan meluas dan segera oleh media elektronik antarabangsa, apa yang berlaku di sesebuah negara itu tidak dapat disembunyi atau dinafikan.
    Isu pokok yang dibangkitkan oleh Ahmad Ismail membabitkan persoalan “menumpang” iaitu rakyat Malaysia keturunan Cina adalah penumpang di negara ini. Beliau menjelaskan bahawa ia merujuk kepada zaman pra-Merdeka. Bagaimanapun, sensitiviti rakyat Malaysia keturunan Cina telah terguris.
    Saya tidak mengenali secara peribadi Ahmad Ismail, tetapi kenal agak rapat dengan Allahyarham abangnya, Abdul Rahim Ismail, pemilik Syarikat Pembinaan Rahim yang pada satu ketika dahulu agak terkenal sebagai sebuah firma pembinaan Bumiputera yang unggul di Pulau Pinang. Saya tidak tahu apa dah jadi dengan syarikat itu selepas Abdul Rahim meninggal dunia.
    Secara peribadi, saya tidak setuju dengan apa yang didakwa dikata oleh Ahmad Ismail atas beberapa sebab.
    Bagi saya, hampir 90 peratus rakyat Malaysia, khususnya di Semenanjung, adalah pendatang dan kita semua sebenarnya menumpang hidup di bumi Allah. Kita bukan pemilik kekal tetapi hanya menumpang.
    Sebagai contoh, saya sendiri adalah keturunan pendatang yang menumpang hidup di bumi bertuah ini. Datuk nenek di sebelah bapa saya berhijrah dari Makkah dan dari Brunei ke sini manakala di sebelah ibu pula dari Hadhramut, Yaman. Kami adalah pendatang dan penumpang sama seperti hampir semua penduduk negara ini khususnya di Pulau Pinang.
    Bagi Ahmad Ismail, dia juga datang dari keluarga pendatang dan menumpang hidup di negara ini. Ahmad Ismail tidak boleh menafikan hakikat bahawa datuk neneknya adalah pendatang dari India untuk menerokai penghidupan yang lebih baik dan selesa di bumi bertuah ini.
    Perdana Menteri Abdullah bin Ahmad juga tergolong dalam kategori yang sama. Datuknya di sebelah ibu adalah pendatang dari wilayah Guandong, China. Pendek kata, datuk Pak Lah iaitu bapa Allahyarhamah Kailan bernama Hassan Salleh atau Hah Su Chiang adalah seorang pendatang. Beliau berhijrah ke Tanah Melayu dari wilayah Guandong (Kwantung) pada pertengahan abad ke-19 dan menetap di Bayan Lepas sebagai pekebun getah, pesawah padi dan kemudian saudagar intan berlian.
    Najib Tun Razak, Timbalan PM juga berasal daripada keluarga pendatang iaitu dari Sulawesi, Indonesia atau lebih senang disebut orang Bugis manakala sepupunya Hishamudin Hussein tidak terlepas daripada darah keturunan Turki.
    Datuk nenek mantan PM Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad juga pendatang dari Kerala, India manakala ibu Almarhum Tunku Abul Rahman berasal dari negeri Siam (Thailand).
    Kesultanan Melayu Melaka pun dibuka oleh orang pendatang dari Sumatra bernama Parameswara, seorang anak raja atau bangsawan beragama Hindu.
    Dalam sejarah kesultanan Melayu, kita dapati ada yang ditubuh oleh pendatang dari Bugis dan ada pula dari Hadhramut selain dari Minangkabau.
    Hampir semua orang Melayu di sini berasal dari luar Tanah Melayu tetapi diiktiraf sebagai “bangsa Melayu” oleh Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Kita adalah “Melayu mengikut takrifan Perlembagaan” iaitu beragama Islam, mengamalkan adat resam Melayu dan bertutur dalam bahasa Melayu. Malangnya, bahasa Melayu nampaknya dimatikan oleh orang Melayu (UMNO) sendiri apabila dinamakan sebagai bahasa Malaysia.
    Oleh itu, orang Arab seperti Syed Hamid Albar dan saya, orang Aceh seperti Sanusi Junid, orang India seperti Kader Sheikh Fadzir dan Nor Mohamed Yakcop, orang Bugis seperti Najib, orang Minang seperti Rais Yatim, orang Jawa seperti Mohamad Rahmat dan yang lain seperti dari Madura, Pulau Boyan, Siam, Burma, Yunnan (China) dan selatan Filipina dengan mudah boleh diiktirf sebagai “Melayu”.
    Mereka diterima sebagai orang Melayu tidak kira sama ada mereka bertutur bahasa Melayu atau tidak di rumah umpamanya si Arab berbahasa Arab, si Jawa berbahasa Jawa dan si Minang berbahasa Minang atupun si Mamak berbahasa Tamil.
    Bahasa-bahasa yang disebut itu bukan bahasa Melayu dan jika dilihat dari sudut Perlembagaan Persekutuan, tidak boleh diterima atau diiktiraf sebagai bangsa Melayu. Walau bagaimanapun, atas kepentingan dan faktor politik, semuanya diterima sebagai Melayu dan Bumiputera.
    Oleh itu, adalah tidak adil untuk menuding jari kepada orang Cina yang juga kaum pendatang sama seperti orang Arab, India, Aceh, Minang, Batak, Mandailing, Jawa, Madura mahupun Bugis, sebagai menumpang di negeri ini. Kita tidak boleh menafikan bahawa sebilangan besar datuk nenek orang Cina telah berhijrah ke negeri ini semasa Kesultanan Melayu Melaka, bahkan kesultanan-kesultanan terdahulu di Kedah mahupun Terengganu dan Kelantan serta semasa Francis Light berjaya menipu Sultan Kedah untuk menduduki Pulau Pinang pada 1786.
    Kita adalah kaum pendatang yang menumpang hidup di negeri ini. Golongan yang boleh diiktiraf sebagai orang asal atau anak bumi tulen adalah mereka yang kita kenali sebagai Negrito, Jakun, Semang, Jahut, Orang Laut, Orang Darat, Senoi dan suku kaum masyarakat Asli lain yang masih menjadi penghuni belantara.
    Kita tidak harus lupa akan sumbangan dan pengorbanan semua kaum dan suku kaum untuk membangunkan Malaysia sama ada dari sudut ekonomi, kemasyarakatan, keselamatan dan yang paling penting kesepakatan dan perpaduan. Semua orang yang kena dan seharusnya membayar cukai, berbuat demikian tanpa mengira kaum atau asal keturunan, sama ada pendatang atau penumpang.
    Kita semua adalah rakyat Malaysia.

  13. goodday Sep 16,2008 2:19 AM

    I believe its time for a malaysian Malaysia. All children of all races must be made obligatory to attend sekolah kebangsaan berbahasa malaysia. Other schools must be made supplementary school. after sekolah kebangsaan session is over these children can then go to sekolah agama, sekolah cina or sekolah tamil or etc…
    This will allow children of all races to get to know each other at younger age at same time still maintained the aspiration of their parent in sending these children to respective school of their language or religion.
    This should be a start of a new social contract.
    Education level of all malaysia must be set at a minimum level of diploma. government should ensure free education for all races to this level. Education institution should be plentiful in order to realise these target. No quota is necessary.

  14. nad Sep 16,2008 1:41 AM

    dear Tun.
    I think the ‘racist’ and ‘social contract’issues were just another political agenda done by those political people-especially the OLDER generation of Malaysian citizen.
    This will not benefits the Malaysian people since this political unstable will affect the confidence of foreign investor to invest in our country which will help the growth of Malaysia economies-which u’all know by now the world economic are down due to recent cases in US,oil prices,etc..
    Since there is a lots of ‘stupid’decision done by current govt-especially in recent cases of Maybank-which they using tax payer money to buy shares in Indonesia’s bank,which is owned by Singapore.This deal is not approved by Bank Negara,unfortunately,Maybank cannot get back the monies from shareholder(Singapore)and also those shares :(.I think the govt should hired someone who has the capabilities to restructuring the financial condition of Malaysia-perhaps someone younger,not related to KJ or other politician.. Who are benefiting from the situation?SINGAPORE!!!Who should be our common enemies?SINGAPORE!!
    I dont want to experience the 13may.NEVER.
    I’am still young,not marry yet and wants to experience life!
    I just hope that govt should take relevant action as soon as possible.
    Thats all!

  15. vani Sep 15,2008 8:20 PM

    To kalajengking,
    Of course Australia is a better place to live considering the equal opportunities I get, though not born there. Better then the second class citizen treatment in Malaysia anytime. Over my dead body will I come back to Malaysia and beg for pittance from people like you. By the way, I have just been accorded my citizenship in Australia.
    To faa,
    Yes, Australia does allow schools of your own faith. The reason I say this is because the Muslims have their own Islamic schools with their own curriculum here in Sydney. Satisfied!
    Give and take what? We are all born in Malaysia. All of us should share the fruit of the nation we built together. We are not asking the Malays to give what is theirs. We are asking that we have what is rightfully ours.
    To afif,
    Shabas! you are a proof that meritocracy does work. I wish that all Malays think like you. All the best and continue to work hard. Malaysia will only become more powerful and par with all other nation if skills and talents are recognised regardless of race and religion.

  16. comment Sep 15,2008 3:00 PM

    The crux of the problem now is the definition “ketuanan Melayu” and Malay privileges. It has never been defined before. As such, as time goes by, problems would definitely occur.
    Does Malay privileges mean that ALL government scholarships are given to the Malays? How about university places? When we talk about scholarships and university places, we must not forget about MARA scholarships, UiTM etc. They are funded by the government as well. When all the Malay-only scholarships and university places are taken into account, the Malay privileges in terms of education is well assured and protected.
    As the example above illustrates, the problem lies with the definition of Malay privileges. Is it 100% of everything? 90% of everything? 50% of everything?

  17. frebie Sep 15,2008 1:52 PM

    Greetings Tun. With regard to the social contract, is it part of this social contract to give discounts on private homes to bumiputras especially on middle n high end properties? It would also be good to share with everyone in point form what is the social contract? If it is to help poor Malays very few non bumiputras will object in my opinion.

    Saya percaya Rakyat negara ini inginkan keamanan keharmonian dan kemajuan dari segi ekonomi,pembanggunan modal insan dan aper saja yang dapat mewujudkan rasa keselesaan dalam kehidupan seharian rakyat yang berbilang kaum.

    BN should call for a resolution to have racially balanced Senior Ministers in the govt to advice the Cabinet, and nominate Tun Mahathir and Ling Liong Sik for such positions. We should also have the Ombudsman institution of senior reputable citizen having more authority to criticise the govt in a more responsible manner.
    Pak Liberalisma is fine now that i can join with the ex-PM to make swipes at the present govt, but it can be disastrous if there is no balancing authority. We have seen chaos before. It is simply uncontrollable at its weakest point.

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Please continue your writing, I have no faith in reading the newspapers and listening to the news anymore. I hate to hear and read about the lazy PM and his ‘kaki bodek’. Your writings on Social contract has enlightened me on the issue as well as the history which I believe should be part of the textbook taught in all schools in Malaysia.
    By the way Vani, have you applied for your citizenship in Australia? How do you apply for one? Can you just go there and be granted a citizenship automatically? Does Australia allow for any of the races to set up their own school in its own language? Please continue to leave this country. We certainly don’t need somebody like you around. Have you ever heard and learn the meaning of the words ” GIVE AND TAKE” and ” TOLERATION”? You cannot expect the Malays to give up everything including strap ourselves from our culture and language so that we could become a multi racial Malaysia. Each race has to learn to give up something- yours not the only ones.

  22. afif Sep 15,2008 6:29 AM

    Tun Dr,
    Saya terharu apabila Tun mengiktiraf kewujudan kami sebagai generasi baru Melayu Liberal. Pak Lah tak sedar yang kami wujud, dan ramai ahli UMNO lain sebegitu juga. Walau Tun sudah bersara, saya kagumi keupayaan Tun untuk menganalisis perubahan dalam masyarakat Malaysia berketurunan Melayu
    Memang betul apa yang Tun katakan, kami tentang diskriminasi kaum, kami junjung meritokrasi, kami sedia korbankan ketuanan bangsa demi memberi hak sama rata kepada kaum Cina dan India, dan kami percaya tiada bangsa yang berhak sepenuhnya ke atas Semenanjung Tanah Melayu, Sabah dan Sarawak kecuali sebuah Bangsa Malaysia
    Apabila kami berkata mengenai meritokrasi dan kesaksamaan kaum, kawan kawan Melayu sebangsa dengan kami akan lantangnya tidak bersetuju dengan kami. Bagi mereka, orang Melayu perlu dibantu untuk maju dan memiliki hak istimewa dengan hujah nenek moyang Melayu sampai dahulu di Tanah Melayu
    Kami Melayu Liberal yang bukan sahaja mempersoalkan sosial kontrak yang menyebelahi kaum Melayu, kami juga persoalkan ketuanan Melayu itu sendiri. Adakah konsep ketuanan Bangsa itu halal di sisi ajaran Rasulluah S.A.W? Dan kami Melayu Liberal akan menjawab dengan memetik rangkap kelima khutbah terakhir Nabi Muhammad S.A.W. sebelum baginda wafat
    Jangan salah faham, kami sudah tentunya bukan nak lihat kaum Melayu itu sendiri jatuh. Tetapi kami percaya yang pendekatan ‘tongkat’ yang digunakan untuk membantu orang Melayu itu salah. 50 tahun orang Melayu diberi ‘tongkat’, kalau benarlah tongkat itu berkesan untuk membantu orang Melayu kenapa orang Melayu hari ini masih merengek rengek meminta bantuan kerajaan dalam segala aspek? Tak bolehkah usaha dengan sendiri tanpa perlu dibiayai dana cukai yang sebahagianya disumbang oleh Cina Malaysia
    Kami percaya bahawa meritokrasi lah jawapan mutlak bagi membangunkan orang Melayu. Berjayanya bangsa bangsa lain di muka bumi ini kerana mereka amat menjunjung meritokrasi, dan gagalnya orang Melayu kerana kita menolak meritokrasi
    Kami mahukan sebuah Bangsa Malaysia, bukanya negara Malaysia yang didiami bangsa Melayu, bangsa Cina, dan bangsa India
    Kami juga bukanlah bercakap kosong bila kami bercakap tentang meritokrasi, tetapi kami benar benar melakukanya
    Ini kisah hidup saya yang masih muda: Sejak bangku sekolah lagi saya percayakan meritokrasi, dan saya sukakan persaingan. Saya bergaul dengan semua orang tanpa mengira kaum dan agama mereka.
    Saya mendapat hasil yang baik dalam PMR dan SPM. Di peringkat SPM, saya menjadi satu satunya anak Melayu dalam senarai 10 terbaik di sekolah saya, dan saya percayakan meritokrasi dan saya tentang kontrak sosial lapuk
    Selepas SPM, menjadi normaliti anak Melayu akan berduyun duyun cuba masuk matrikulasi – institusi yang Tun bina untuk bantu orang Melayu.
    Tetapi saya dengan keputusan SPM saya yang lebih dari melayakkan diri saya ke matrikulasi, tak terdetik sikit pun nak mohon masuk matrikulasi. Borangnya pun saya tak pernah lihat dan tak pernah cari. Saya pilih Tingkatan 6
    Dengan keputusan SPM saya yang menjadikan saya wakil Melayu dalam senarai 10 terbaik di sekolah, semua orang persoalkan pilihan saya memilih tingkatan 6, mereka tanya kenapa tidak masuk matrikulasi? Mereka orang Melayu lihat seolah olah saya telah membuat keputusan yang sangat merugikan hidup saya. Ibu bapa, keluarga, para guru, rakan rakan saya terkejut dengan keputusan saya, mereka cukup tidak faham
    Tetapi bagi seorang pemimpin bijak seperti Tun, sudah tentu Tun tahu apa yang saya sebenarnya mahukan. Saya tahu matrikulasi dicipta untuk bantu orang Melayu, maka dari situ saya dapat lihat ia tiada unsur meritokrasi.
    Dan saya pilih tingkatan 6 semata mata sebab SAYA ANAK MELAYU MAMPU DAN BERJAYA BERSAING DENGAN BANGSA LAIN!! SAYA NAK BUKTIKAN BANGSA MELAYU BOLEH BERJAYA TANPA DEB, TANPA KONTRAK SOSIAL, TANPA KETUANAN MELAYU!! ANAK MELAYU TAK PERLU DIBANTU, MEREKA BOLEH BERJAYA INSYALLAH!!
    dan alhamdullilah, kini saya sedang menyambung pelajaran di universiti

  23. faa Sep 15,2008 5:53 AM

    Dearest Tun,
    I am a young professional Malay lawyer which I am embarrased to admit so considering what Bar Council had done and what the traitor Zaid Ibrahim had done (and did not do)recently). Ramai rakan rakan saya termasuk yang bukan Melayu berpendapat bahawa tiada gunanya kita mengungkit hal2 tentang isu kontrak sosial kerana fakta Malaysia terutama semasa di bawah Tun telah menunjukkan negara kita telah meniti pembangunan dengan baik sekali.Kami juga berpendapat ianya adalah antara sebab kita tidak menjadi seperti sesetengah negara (seperti Indonesia) di mana pengagihan hasil bumi yang tidak rata sehingga berlakunya rusuhan /pembunuhan beberapa tahun dahulu yang menyebabkan kaum minoriti tetapi kaya tinggal dalam ketakutan. Tetapi dalam pada itu, saya juga berpendapat sekiranya ada pihak ingin menimbulkan isu tersebut, semua isu kontrak sosial mesti dibangkitkan dan dikaji semula dan bukan hanya tentang isu keistimewaan orang Melayu sahaja.
    Saya masih menunggu kenyataan dari Tun samada Tun benar2 menyertai UMNO? Saya tak kisah kalau ini benar dan bertentangan dengan prinsip Tun sebelum ini ASALkan BN dapat bangun semula dan betulkan keadaan yang huru-hara sekarang. Saya betul-betul tak faham kenapa Pak Lah tu lembap sangat atau dia tu tinggal dalam dunia dia sendiri sebab macam tak tau LANGSUNG apa-apa yang berlaku atau dilakukan oleh kaum kerabat dia. Saya rasa dia mungkin setakat berjaya jadi YB kampung sahaja, bukan di peringkat nasional. Asyik pergi pembukaan / perasmian sahaja, banyak sangat ke masa lapang dia? Mungkin Tun, saya cadangkan di sini institusi raja diperkukuhkan memandangkan dah ada beberapa Sultan yang dah pandai sikit!Mungkin mereka dapat menolong mengembalikan kepercayaan rakyat terhadap BN.
    Sekian Tun, selamat berpuasa dan saya saya doakan semoga Tun dan isteri sentiasa sihat dan boleh memimpin kami semula.

    Assalamualaikum Tun dan keluarga..
    Teruskan bersuara demi untuk Malaysia dan rakyatnya. Kami perlukan suara yang bernas dan bervisi untuk kecemerlangan Malaysia.. Kami malu dengan suara-suara “bodoh” dari kebanyakan Dato’-Dato’ Menteri kita hari ini. Semuanya kelihatan mahu menjadi jaguh tetapi komen-komen dan pandangan mereka seperti karangan budak tingkatan 5.
    To Vani,
    If you think Australia is the best place then go ahead and don’t ever return and stay in Malaysia anymore. We don’t need people like you here !!

    SALAM AYAHANDA RAKYAT TUN,
    IZINKAN,
    By irony on September 14, 2008 11:55 PM
    Do you think blaming the succesor pointed by you will make the situation better?or make you yourself better?
    Everything is about other’s fault,not yours..
    Since you are so self-righteous,why don’t you come out with a constructive proposal instead of pointing finger at others?
    THE IRONY OF ‘irony’ IS THAT HE POINTS ONE FINGER AT AYAHANDA TUN BUT POINTED THE OTHER FOUR FINGERS TOWARDS HIMSELF!
    YOU WERE RIGHT. AYAHANDA DID NOT COME OUT WITH ONE CONSTRUCTIVE PROPOSAL BUT THE COMPREHENSIVE PROPOSAL FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF INTRASTRUCTURES BOTH FOR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL DEVELOPMENTS. THE WAWASAN 2020 CONSTRUCTIONS WERE LAID OUT BY AYAHANDA TUN FOR HIS SUCCESSOR TO ADHERE TO REALISE THE VISION OF A DEVELOPED MALAYSIA FOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONS TO INHERIT.
    BUT ALAS, THIS AAB( ARROGANT, AIMLESS BONEHEAD) DID NOT HEED TO AYAHANDA TUN’S PROPOSAL BUT HAD HIS OWN ‘IDEAS’ TO ‘OUTSHINE’ THE GREATEST PLANNER, DESIGNER, ARCHITECT, ENGINNEER..ETC ALL IN ONE GIFTED TO THE NATION BY THE ALMIGHT ALLAH SWT.
    22 YEARS OF NATION BUILDING WHICH WAS MODELLED BY THE OIC AND THE THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES AND WATCHED BY THE DEVELOPED NATIONS IN AWE AT THE ‘FAST TRACK’ PACE OF THE NATION’S PROGRESS, WERE ‘DUMPED’ INTO THE PUTRAJAYA LAKES BY THIS ‘DUMB’ (DERANGED, USELESS and MENTAL BLOCKED) SUCCESSOR.
    THE ‘NEW ORDER’ OF PRIME MINISTER AAB ‘SANK’ FASTER THAN THE WAWASAN 2020 PACKAGE INTO THE DEEP END OF THE LAKES.
    THE BN RULING PARTY OF HALF A CENTURY WITH SOLID AND PROVEN NATION BUILDING TRACK RECORDS OF A MULTI FACETS COUNTRY AND WAS THE ENVY OF THE WORLD HAS NOW LOST ITS SHINE AND SLOWLY RETREAT INTO THE DARK WATERS OF THE PUTRAJAYA LAKES. GONE WERE THE 2/3 MAJORITIES AND GONE WERE 5 STATES ASSEMBLIES.
    SO ‘irony’, THE IRONY OF THE IRONIES IS THE PERSISTENT STATE OF ‘DENIAL’ OF THE AAB(ATAS (kepala)ADA BATU) AND THE ‘KNIGHTS OF THE STONEHEADS’.
    TO THE ‘irony’, NEVER EVER POINTS YOUR FINGER UNLESS THE OTHER FOUR FINGERS HAVE BEEN ‘AMPUTATED’.
    HAVE A THOUGHTFUL LIFE, MY FRIEND.
    MAY GOD BLESS US ALL.

    Dear Tun,
    I’m a Malaysian who has left Malaysia to Australia simply because I could not accept the unfair privileges given to one particular race for more than 50 years. I can understand that the Malays may have needed some help initially to be par with the Chinese economically. If after 50 years, they still need hand-outs, there’s seriously something wrong with the Malays’ ability to compete in the current global climate.
    I’m a second generation Malaysian Indian born in Malaysia, a citizen yet I’m treated as second class citizen when it comes to education, business or employment in public sector.
    Now, I’m only a migrant in Australia but I get fair treatment here in terms of employment, education, business, freedom of speech etc.
    When I bought my property here, I was granted AUD7000 by the federal goverment just like the citizens of the counrty. This is simply because I’m a tax payer just like the citizens of Australia.
    I feel sad that the same is not true in Malaysia, where I was born. Malays whether rich or poor, get discount to purchase property but not the non-Malays, although all of us work as hard and pay the same tax.
    There is a lot that the Malaysian government and the Malays as a whole should learn from the developed countries. No point talking about 2020 when the Malay mentality is always seeking for hand-outs.
    I’m glad that I decided to leave a country that will always look at me and my next generation as pendatang, hiding behind some outdated social contract.
    What a joke!
    Don’t intimidate non-Malays with a threat of revoking their citizenship. There are many western countries in the world that will take the non-Malays as refugees. Malays will be the biggest losers econimically not the non-Malays. We non-Malays know how to compete with world population equally.

    Dear Tun,
    Totally agreed with you.
    These culprits deserved ISA.
    And for the minorities, do not ever try to threat the majorities and test their patience.
    We do not need 13-May Part II….
    What we need is continuous live in peace forever and ever….

    To all Malaysians,
    Despite of our difference in terms of races, color skin, language preference and what not, we’re all Malaysians. We’ve come this far, went through all the hardships and joys in building the country as it is today. Chinese without doubt, most of you are hardworking and business oriented people. Indian, most of you are warm and friendly. Malays, upholding our adat and values.
    What’s the point of us to fight against each other? Most of us are well-educated and yet it seems like the knowledge that we possess seems to make us more self-centered. Where’s our humanity value?
    Why is it so easy for us to stir up racial tension and hurt each other? Why is it so difficult for us to try understand each other? Why all of you think that this piece of land belong to you alone? I don’t think it belongs to anybody. This is the country that we share, the country that we’ve built as it is today.
    Try to understand first before seek to be understood.

    YBhg. Tun
    Salam sejahtera dan didoakan agar Tun sekeluarga dalam keadaan sihat sejahtera.
    Setiap rakyat Malaysia yang merupakan warganegara Malaysia seharusnya menerima kontrak sosial yang telah dipupuk dan diamalkan sejak merdeka agar isu-isu perkauman yang amat sensitif tidak dipolitikkan. Sebarang pendapat dan komen yang dikeluarkan harus difikirkan terlebih dahulu sebelum diucap agar tidak menimbulkan salah tafsir dan dijadikan isu yang boleh menjejaskan hubungan baik diantara kaum serta ketenteram awam.
    Berkempen atau berpolitiklah dengan mengutarakan isu-isu lain yang boleh memberi kesedaran kepada pembangunan pemikiran dan negara secara amnya.
    Isu PERKAUMAN adalah isu yang cepat mendapat reaksi masyarakat dan boleh menagih simpati tetapi jika tersalah cara penyampaian dan diputar belitkan, maka ianya akan memakan diri.
    Bagi pemerintah dan pentadbir berilah pertimbangan secara adil tanpa mengutamakan kaum. Siapa layak berilah mengikut kelayakannya.
    Apa yang berlaku kebelakangan ini seharusnya menjadi teledan dan sempadan.
    Utamakan keharmonian dan kesejahteraan rakyat untuk mencapai Wawasan 2020.

    I agree with
    umari999 on September 12, 2008 9:42 PM
    The NEP or social contract is needed to minimise the difference between the Malay majority and the rich and economically powerful Chinese. The spirit of the NEP is still valid. It is to avoid what happened in Nazi Germany, Uganda, Indonesia and many other nations, where the indigenous people resorted to bloodshed to ‘equalise’.
    As you said only minority of Malays do not support the social contract. These have their own personal interests. Most Chinese do not question the status quo they know that they are doing well, controlling Malaysian economy private sector and many govt departments: human resources, science and technology, smedec, FFM, hospitals,universities,infrastructure and others.
    The Chinese are still getting most of the big projects through many Malay proxies. More fool some of the Malay proxies who are satisfied with easy money and those Malays in government know about proxies but who collude by closing one eye for a backhander knowing about proxies. “Win-win” is a Chinese concept introduced to con their so called ‘partners’.
    Don’t misjudge the feeling of the silent majority.
    Anuar, RKP and the like are demagogues. They do not have the interest of the rakyats: Malays, Chinese, Indians and others. They will ruin and spoil everything to fulfil their own egotistical desires.

  32. Rickster Sep 14,2008 6:24 PM

    Dear Tun, my first time commenting on your blog. I’m simply no longer content with just reading comments from others but I do wonder if you actually go thru all postings here.
    I was back in M’sia recently and talked to my childhood buddies abt what’s been happening at home. It surprised me that quite a few feels strongly about doing away with NEP. The main reason cited is so that the Malays would start to excel when all the support is taken away – you know, capitalism in the classic American sense. My friends are even aware that such removal would result in a dip but is confident that the Malays would bounce back. And these came from well educated Malays, Ivy leaguers and Oxbridge grads some of them, but all of them were benefactors of government scholarships. I don’t think however it’s simply a case of “Melayu mudah lupa”. The Malays who wants NEP removed do have a point; a subsidy mindset would continue to lull Malays to be mediocre. But I think the problem is not the NEP, the problem is:
    1) With the Malay mindset itself, I find most Malays do not understand the concept of competition. That to me is the root of the problem, NEP kills competitiveness. But why can’t we have NEP that fosters competition? The better solution is remodel NEP so the program starts to produce smart, educated, competitive Malays as opposed to dishing out benefits simply because you are a Bumiputera. So that in future, the NEP does not produce Malays who takes for granted whatever form of support the government dishes out and cries when (and if) these support is taken away. One day there may not be a need for NEP, when Malays are better equipped and can compete on our own merit. That day perhaps will come when today’s minority of Malays who wants to rid of NEP becomes the significant majority – I think that is a sign that we are ready to leave NEP behind. But this – the removal of NEP in future, does not mean Malays should no longer be afforded special privileges. This is my next point.
    2) Malays who wants to do away with NEP tend to be overseas educated, middle class. That is not reflective of the majority of Malays. The majority feels removal of Malay rights as an emotional issue – despite not being able to articulate what exactly “Malay rights” mean in today’s context. To me, this is where the frustration against UMNO lies. Malays, whether the minority who wants to do away with NEP and those who wants to keep them – all of us, we no longer feel we are “special” and we no longer feel we are special because UMNO has failed to make Malays a better breed. What do I mean by “special”? Well this IS OUR country FFS. The whites in US, Australia and Europe despite not having NEP are nonetheless “Masters” of their domain. Similarly with Arabs in the GCC, Indians in India, Chinese in China, Japanese in Japan etc. Despite achieving (differing degrees of) assimilation with other races, there is no doubt as to who runs the country. Who can blame them? It’s their country after all. So why must we let go of this Malay pride? I’m Malay and I don’t want to feel like I am no longer respected as a Bumiputera. I don’t ever want to have non-Malay as a PM. Ever. Hence the failure of UMNO today. UMNO has failed to make Malays feel good in their own country and UMNO is now more of an organization for Malays that provides privilege to the select few whilst the rest are expected to follow – KJ is a fine example of this privilege. As are those in UMNO who flaunts their wealth mainly garnered thru contacts rather than competition.
    This does not mean I’m a racist or that I don’t appreciate the non-Malays. I appreciate the contribution of non-Malays to the country – Malaysia would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for the Malaysian Chinese and Indians. I love everything about being a multicultural society. I would never hurt another person because of the colour of their skin, I would not disrespect the non-Malays who have made Malaysia their home, I would not deny them their basic rights to live peacefully and make a living. But if somehow this translates into an idea of a country where Malays, Chinese and Indians will be treated as equals in every sense of the word – then that will never and should never happen. It’s harsh, but it is a fact of life. The Malays, the Bumiputera and their needs must always come first in Malaysia.

    Tun,
    Im totally agreed with your opinion, but sadly this opinion doesnt shared by our leaders. The weak leadership make the things eroded tremendously for the past few years. Due to his political agenda, he has undermined several constructive opinion came either by you or anybodyelse….. what the shame it is.
    Clearly, you have make a wrong decision to apoointed him be your successor. Yeah, who knows what will happen, is it? Only god know that.
    But, Im still beleived you have used all your wisdom in deciding him as your successor.

    Hi Tun and all readers,
    I used to be a liberal citizen. I used to think that in order for the country to develop, all citizen deserves equal rights. So when the race begins, the country will benefit much of it. But not anymore.
    What other liberal malay refused to see is the obvious fact that, the chinese always fight for chinese rights since as far back as i can recall. The indians fights for indian rights. Do we see non-malay fight for malay rights? No….So if we the malay dont fight for the malays, who else will? Why do we need to champion the very race that calls us stupid, racists, corrupts, undeserving etc? Do u people actually believe that should the non-malays be in power, they wont be as corrupt or worst? For god sakes my fellow melayu wake up!! Wake up and love your skin, wake up and love our Tanah Melayu. be proud of being born a Melayu. Dont be a coward and bow down to the so called ethnicity equality. I love my people. I am sorry to say that I see Malay PKR as melayu betrayals. What are they fighting for? Equality for whom? For the non-malays who hates the malays? For the non-malays who wants to rid the malays from the face of this Tanah melayu? Wake up my melayu.
    Chinese companies gives priorities to chinese vendors and job opportunities, indian companies did the same.. yet these very people called us malays as racists if we do the very same they have been doing all along. Adil ke tu brader? To liberal melayus out there, u all pergi overseas on government scholarship dulu tu, siapa yg bayar wei..Have u ever thanked your skin colour? so now that u all came home, feeling slightly enlightened and educated than the rest of the malay populations, u think u know whats best for all the melayu in this country by giving away our anak cucu rights so easily just like that? hello… wake up la..

  36. S..Tan Sep 14,2008 11:35 AM

    Dear Tun,
    Your blog is in English but I wish to respond in BM to show that we try to learn and adapt to the majority and authority. This effort is not recognized by those who criticise us. Just try and learn another language and see.
    Saya nak beri pandangan macam Tun perkara demi perkara, tak keliru.
    Per 1:SORRY?
    Rasa saya Tun tak kesal pun bangkit hal ini! Sebaliknya Tun gembira..hingga tak sempat senyum. Bayang kera jumpa cincin! Datang peluang hentam tanpa kira kesan,padah pada ketenteraman. Peluang yang pengamal politik kaki lima tak kan biar terlepas.Seorang negarawan dan tokoh sepatutnya mententeramkan keadaan bukan menjadi si penghasut.
    Per 2:NON-MALAY LEADERSHIP?
    Saya orang Cina terima dan akur pada kepimpinan Melayu,penguasaan mrk dlm pentadbiran dan politik. Saya hanya minta mrk insaf pada Tuhan mrk, jangan tamak sampai insan warna lain yang lahir dibumi ini atas kuasa Tuhan juga tidak di bela. Kaum lain mengharap ada pemimpin Melayu yang sanggup bersikap adil dan melawan sifat tamak anjuran ketuanan Melayu. Mereka hanya minta keadilan dan pembelaan dari yang berkuasa bukan nak tuntut kuasa atau menggugat kedudukan Melayu. Itu tuduhan Umno tiap kali kaum lain minta Melayu adil pada yang lemah,minority,malang,kurang daya walau kaum lain.Jangan terlalu sibuk memperkayakan Melayu yang dah berada dan mengada ngada itu.
    BETIS dan PEHA?
    Kami dan kaum lain tak nak kuasa cuma keadilan, keamanan, kesejahteraan negara. Hanya Umno menuduh begini kerana kepentingan mrk. Melayu PAS PKR dan golongan kecil Tun sebut sini sedar tuntutan kaum lain bukan kuasa.
    Permintaan saya dari pemimpin Melayu- demi ketuanan Melayu saya sanggup ada ketidakadilan tapi jangan jadi kejam dan dasyat. Contoh kalau anak tauke kaum lain tak dapat bantuan dan anak pegawai tinggi kerajaan dapat – TAK ADIL TAPI APO NAK DI KATO?.
    Anak miskin penjaja kaum lain tak dibantu tapi anak pegawai,peniaga Melayu rumah berkolam renang(contoh Ahmad Ismail) dapat bantuan hak bumiputra konon- kan kejam! Agama mana pun tak restui perbuatan ini.
    Tun negarawan muka tembok(dah lepas minta balik) bermuka dua dan muflis akal jika cuba menghasut orang Melayu cara ini untuk mendapat perhatian. Banyak hujah lain boleh Tun guna nak satukan Melayu bukan dengan membesar-besarkan ancaman kaum lain konon untuk menakutkan orang Melayu.Menyalahkan kaum lain cara wajib Umno nak tarik perhatian Melayu. Lainlah kalau ketua bahagian Umno cakap begini.Tokoh apa guna politik kotor ini!
    Nampak sangat Tun sanggup mengguna apa saja senjata untuk jatuhkan Pak Lah termasuk bangkit isu perkauman. Tun sekarang tergulung dengan ahli politik akal lemah terpaksa mainkan emosi untuk raih manafaat. Nama tokoh sejagat,global, berwibawa tak padan degan Tun- pencuri kesempatan, pembelit kenyataan lebih lekat.
    Minta maaf dah terlanjur panjang…saya sambung lain hari.
    S..Tan

  37. azlyn Sep 14,2008 10:23 AM

    salam tun dan pembaca ruangan ini,
    saya takut dan risau membaca keangkuhan sesetengah pembaca dalam menyuarakan pandangan mereka, terutamanya yang menyentuh hal hal perkauman. seolah-olah kaum kaum ini bukannya manusia yang bernyawa dan perlu saling menghormati.
    Dalam hidup ini, tak kiralah apa pun agama dan bangsa kita, saling menghormati harus menjadi keutamaan. saya tak sanggup malaysia menjadi seperti iraq, palestin, serbia etc…. all those war and senseless killing…..untuk apa?
    social contract or no social contract…we are here today, now, why talk in the past, it already happened. the future of our children should be our utmost priority. everyone, regardless of race, religion, party should just buckle up and think of how to improve and not to aggravate further all this ill-feeling, prejudice, bigotry, racist thing. it is leading us to no where other than widening the gap of misunderstanding among the rakyats.
    pls, readers and bloggers, think again before you write and present your views and ideas.
    selamat hari raya to all

    Tun,
    Nak tambah sikit lagi…..
    I’m referring to Aan 13 sept 5.15am…dan di penang sebenaqnya ada macam2 yang pelik antaranya:
    1.Ada orang cina yang langsung xtau cakap melayu.spt di air itam,kg pulau,weld quay.
    2.Ada sesetengah kilang xbagi pekerja islam/muslim sembahyang jumaat.
    3.Sms sekarang ni dihantar sesama mereka utk memboikot utk melumpuhkan bisnes org2 melayu esp. umno.Perkara2 seperti ini dicakapkan secara terbuka dihadapan org melayu.
    4.setiap kawasan perumahan baru, bumi quota akan dikatakan habis,utk disimpan dan di buka kepada non bumi.bayangkan ada kws yg pecahan ethnik sampai 100% cina.
    5.Ada satu ketika azan xboleh dilaungkan di Batu Uban kerana menggangu kondominium mewah bersebelahan.
    6. Double standard bukan shj berlaku di kilang tetapi juga disyarikat besar lain spt(investment bank)quata 30% yg di tetapkan oleh bursa Malaysia disalahguna(hanya mengunakan nama.Gaji,kenaikan,bonus dan segala2nya adalah xsama antara melayu dan cina
    7.Di pejabat-surau atau tempat2 sembahyang hanya di stor atau dimana2 bilik kosong yang ada,kadang2 sukar utk mengadakan surau.
    8.Isu melayu & cina sekarang ini berani dibincangkan secara terbuka tanpa menghiraukan perasaan minoriti melayu.
    9. Babi boleh dijual di tepi2 jalan, ikut suka hati depa saja.
    10. Harga barangan dijual berbeza antara melayu dan cina.
    11.Dan banyak lagi,tambahan pula sekarang ini dibawah DAP,lagi menjadi2lah depa2ni
    Saya amat bersetuju dgn Aan, gerenti saya biarkan the chinese boy/girl lemas dan kalaulah chinese boy/girl itu teresa kok saya akan lemaskan beliau walaupun risikonya saya juga yang akan lemas.

    For those who write on meritocracy, please read this repost
    by The Stig on August 6, 2008 4:20 PM
    Tun,
    I think you should right about how the non-bumis also enjoyed the benefit. You shoud start writing about robert kuok and his sugar ap (one of the reasons he made it big. And out of all the privatisation and concession how many has been given to non bumis. And still we bumi is not fair? I like to point the reader of this blog on the so called meitocracy practiced in singapore called charade of meritocracy by Michael Barr. Sorry tun if take too much space.
    The Charade Of Meritocracy
    FEER, October 2006
    By Michael D. Barr
    The legitimacy of the Singaporean government is predicated on the idea of a meritocratic technocracy. A tiny number of career civil servants play a leading role in setting policy within their ministries and other government-linked bureaucracies, leading both an elite corps of senior bureaucrats, and a much larger group of ordinary civil servants. Virtually all of the elite members of this hierarchy are “scholars,” which in Singapore parlance means they won competitive, bonded government scholarships—the established route into the country’s elite.
    Scholars not only lead the Administrative Service, but also the military’s officer corps, as well as the executive ranks of statutory boards and government-linked companies (GLCs). Movement between these four groups is fluid, with even the military officers routinely doing stints in the civilian civil service. Together with their political masters, most of whom are also scholars, they make up the software for the entity commonly known as “Singapore Inc.”—a labyrinth of GLCs, statutory boards and ministries that own or manage around 60% of Singapore’s economy.
    The basis of the scholars’ mandate to govern is not merely their performance on the job, but also the integrity of the process that selected them. The educational system is designed to cultivate competition, requiring top students to prove themselves every step of the way. Singapore’s schools first stream students into elite classes after Primary 3 and 4. They then compete for entry into special secondary schools and junior colleges, before vying for government and government-linked scholarships to attend the most prestigious universities around the world.
    These scholarships typically require several years of government service after graduation, and the scholars are drafted into the Administrative Service, the officer corps of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), or the career track of a statutory board or GLC. The government insists that all Singaporeans have equal opportunities to excel in the system, and that everyone who has made it to the top did so purely by academic talent and hard work. Other factors such as gender, socioeconomic background and race supposedly play no more than a marginal role, if they are acknowledged as factors at all.
    On the point of race, the Singapore government has long prided itself on having instituted a system of multiracialism that fosters cultural diversity under an umbrella of national unity. This is explicitly supposed to protect the 23% of the population who belong to minority races (mainly ethnic Malays and Indians) from discrimination by the Chinese majority.
    But this system conceals several unacknowledged agendas. In our forthcoming book, Constructing Singapore: Elitism, Ethnicity and the Nation-Building Project, Zlatko Skrbiš and I present evidence that the playing field is hardly level. In fact, Singapore’s system of promotion disguises and even facilitates tremendous biases against women, the poor and non-Chinese. Singapore’s administrative and its political elites—especially the younger ones who have come through school in the last 20 or so years—are not the cream of Singapore’s talent as they claim, but are merely a dominant social class, resting on systemic biases to perpetuate regime regeneration based on gender, class and race.
    At the peak of the system is the network of prestigious government scholarships. Since independence in 1965, the technique of using government scholarships to recruit cohorts of scholars into the administrative and ruling elite has moved from the periphery of Singaporean society to center stage. Even before independence, a makeshift system of government and Colombo Plan scholarships sent a few outstanding scholars overseas before putting them into government service, including most notably former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong. Yet as late as 1975 this system had contributed only two out of 14 members of Singapore’s cabinet. Even by 1985, only four out of 12 cabinet ministers were former government scholars.
    By 1994, however, the situation had changed beyond recognition, with eight out of 14 cabinet ministers being ex-scholars, including Prime Minister Goh. By 2005 there were 12 ex-scholars in a Cabinet of 19. Of these, five had been SAF scholars, including Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. A perusal of the upper echelons of the ruling elite taken more broadly tells a similar story. In 1994, 12 of the 17 permanent secretaries were scholars, as were 137 of the 210 in the administrative-officer class of the Administrative Service.
    The government scholarship system claims to act as a meritocratic sieve—the just reward for young adults with talent and academic dedication. If there is a racial or other bias in the outcomes, then this can only be the result of the uneven distribution of talent and academic application in the community. As Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong put it when he spoke on national television in May 2005, “We are a multiracial society. We must have tolerance, harmony. … And you must have meritocracy … so everybody feels it is fair….” His father, former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, was making the same point when, in 1989, he told Singapore’s Malay community that they “must learn to compete with everyone else” in the education system.
    Yet if Singapore’s meritocracy is truly a level playing field, as the Lees assert, then the Chinese must be much smarter and harder working than the minority Indians and Malays. Consider the distribution of the top jobs in various arms of the Singapore government service in the 1990s (based on research conducted by Ross Worthington in the early 2000s):
    • Of the top 30 GLCs only two (6.7%) were chaired by non-Chinese in 1991 (and neither of the non-Chinese was a Malay).
    • Of the 38 people who were represented on the most GLC boards in 1998, only two (5.3%) were non-Chinese (and neither of the non-Chinese was a Malay).
    • Of the 78 “core people” on statutory boards and GLCs in 1998, seven (9%) were non-Chinese (and one of the non-Chinese was a Malay).
    A similar outcome is revealed in the pattern of government scholarships awarded after matriculation from school. Of the 200 winners of Singapore’s most prestigious scholarship, the President’s Scholarship, from 1966-2005 only 14 (6.4%) were not Chinese. But this was not a consistent proportion throughout the period. If we take 1980 as the divider, we find that there were 10 non-Chinese President’s Scholars out of 114 from 1966-80, or 8%, but in the period from 1981-2005 this figure had dropped to four out of 106, or 3.8%. Since independence, the President’s Scholarship has been awarded to only one Malay, in 1968. There has been only one non-Chinese President’s Scholar in the 18 years from 1987 to 2005 (a boy called Mikail Kalimuddin) and he is actually half Chinese, studied in Chinese schools (Chinese High School and Hwa Chong Junior College), and took the Higher Chinese course as his mother tongue. If we broaden our focus to encompass broader constructions of ethnicity, we find that since independence, the President’s Scholarship has been won by only two Muslims (1968 and 2005).
    If we consider Singapore’s second-ranked scholarship—the Ministry of Defence’s Singapore Armed Forces Overseas Scholarship (SAFOS)—we find a comparable pattern. The Ministry of Defence did not respond to my request for a list of recipients of SAF scholarships, but using newspaper accounts and information provided by the Ministry of Defence Scholarship Centre and Public Service Commission Scholarship Centre Web sites, I was able to identify 140 (56%) of the 250 SAFOS winners up to 2005.
    Although only indicative, this table clearly suggests the Chinese dominance in SAFOS stakes: 98% of SAFOS winners in this sample were Chinese, and about 2% were non-Chinese (counting Mikail Kalimuddin in 2005 as non-Chinese). Furthermore I found not a single Malay recipient and only one Muslim winner (Mikail Kalimuddin). A similar picture emerges in the lower status Singapore Armed Forces Merit Scholarship winners: 71 (25.6%) of 277 (as of late 2005) scholars identified, with 69 (97%) Chinese winners to only two non-Chinese—though there was a Malay recipient in 2004, and one reliable scholar maintains that there have been others.
    The position of the non-Chinese in the educational stakes has clearly deteriorated since the beginning of the 1980s. According to the logic of meritocracy, that means the Chinese have been getting smarter, at least compared to the non-Chinese.
    Yet the selection of scholars does not depend purely on objective results like exam scores. In the internal processes of awarding scholarships after matriculation results are released, there are plenty of opportunities to exercise subtle forms of discrimination. Extracurricular activities (as recorded in one’s school record), “character” and performance in an interview are also considered. This makes the selection process much more subjective than one would expect in a system that claims to be a meritocracy, and it creates ample opportunity for racial and other prejudices to operate with relative freedom.
    Is there evidence that such biases operate at this level? Unsurprisingly, the answer to this question is “yes.” Take for instance a 2004 promotional supplement in the country’s main newspaper used to recruit applicants for scholarships. The advertorial articles accompanying the paid advertisements featured only one non-Chinese scholar (a Malay on a lowly “local” scholarship) amongst 28 Chinese on prestigious overseas scholarships. Even more disturbing for what they reveal about the prejudices of those offering the scholarships were the paid advertisements placed by government ministries, statutory boards and GLCs. Of the 30 scholars who were both prominent and can be racially identified by their photographs or their names without any doubt as to accuracy, every one of them was Chinese. This leaves not a shadow of a doubt that those people granting government and government-linked scholarships presume that the vast majority of high-level winners will be Chinese.
    The absence of Malays from the SAFOS scholarships and their near-absence from the SAF Merit Scholarships deserves special mention because this is an extension of discrimination against the admission of Malays into senior and sensitive positions in the SAF that is officially sanctioned. The discrimination against Malays has been discussed in parliament and the media, and is justified by the assertion that the loyalty of Malays cannot be assumed, both because they are Muslim and because they have a racial and ethnic affinity with the Malays in Malaysia and Indonesia. Current Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has historically been a vocal defender of this policy.
    This discrimination hits Malay men hard, first because it deprives many of promising careers in the army, and second—and more pertinent for our study of the elite—it all but completely excludes potentially high-flying Malays of a chance of entering the scholar class through the SAF. A Chinese woman has a much better chance of winning an SAF scholarship than a Malay man.
    Yet even before the scholarship stage, the education system has stacked the deck in favor of Chinese, starting in preschool. Here is the heart of Singapore’s systemic discrimination against non-Chinese. Since the end of the 1970s, the principles of “meritocracy” and “multiracialism” have been subverted by a form of government-driven Chinese chauvinism that has marginalized the minorities. It was not known to the public at the time, but as early as 1978, then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew had begun referring to Singapore as a “Confucian society” in his dealings with foreign dignitaries. This proved to be the beginning of a shift from his record as a defender of a communally neutral form of multiracialism toward a policy of actively promoting a Chinese-dominated Singapore.
    The early outward signs of the Sinicization program were the privileging of Chinese education, Chinese language and selectively chosen “Chinese values” in an overt and successful effort to create a Mandarin- and English-speaking elite who would dominate public life. Two of the most important planks of this campaign were decided in 1979: the annual “Speak Mandarin Campaign” and the decision to preserve and foster a collection of elite Chinese-medium schools, known as Special Assistance Plan (SAP) schools.
    The SAP schools are explicitly designed to have a Chinese ambience, right down to Chinese gardens, windows shaped like plum blossoms, Chinese orchestra and drama, and exchange programs with mainland China and Taiwan. Over the years the children in SAP schools have been given multiple advantages over those in ordinary schools, including exclusive preschool programs and special consideration for preuniversity scholarships.
    For instance, in the early 1980s, when there was a serious shortage of graduate English teachers in schools, the Ministry of Education ensured there were enough allocated to SAP schools “to help improve standards of English among the Chinese-medium students, in the hope that they will be able to make it to university”—a target brought closer by the granting of two O-level bonus points exclusively to SAP school students when they applied to enter junior college. By contrast, neither Indians nor Malays received any special help, let alone schools of their own to address their special needs. They were not only left to fend for themselves, but were sometimes subjected to wanton neglect: inadequately trained teachers, substandard facilities and resources and the “knowledge” that they are not as good as the Chinese.
    This account of discrimination against non-Chinese might lead the reader to assume that the quarter of Singaporeans who are not Chinese must form a festering and perhaps even revolutionary mass of resentment. Such an assumption would, however, be a long way from the mark. Non-Chinese might be largely excluded from the highest levels of the administrative elite, but just below these rarefied heights there plenty of positions open to intelligent and hardworking non-Chinese—certainly enough to ensure that non-Chinese communities have much to gain by enthusiastically buying into the system, even after the glass ceilings and racial barriers are taken into account. There are many grievances and resentments in these levels of society but the grievances are muted and balanced by an appreciation of the relative comforts and prosperity they enjoy. For most, any tendency to complain is subdued also by knowledge that it could be worse, and the widespread assumption among members of minority communities that it will be if they seriously pursue their grievances. As long as the Singapore system continues to deal such people a satisfactory hand, if not a fair one, it should be able to cope with some quiet rumblings in the ranks.
    While this discrimination is not sparking a reaction that threatens the regime in the short term, the resulting injustices are certainly undermining the myth that the regime operates on meritocratic principles. This is worrying in the longer term because this myth, along with the capacity to deliver peace and prosperity, is one of the primary rationales by which Singaporeans reluctantly accept the many unpopular aspects of the regime, such as the lack of freedom and democracy, the intrusion of government into most aspects of private life, the pressure-cooker lifestyle and the high cost of living.
    The rhetoric of meritocracy has given Singaporeans the consolation of believing that their ruling elite are the best of the best and can therefore be trusted almost blindly on important matters, even if they are highhanded and lack the common touch. As this illusion gradually falls away—and today it is already heavily undermined—the trust that Singaporeans have for their government is becoming increasingly qualified. It remains to be seen how long the regime can avert the logical consequences of the contradictions between the myth and the reality.

    Salam Sejahtera Tun and Fellow Audience,
    As the Anak Melayu Jati, I am deeply hurt and concern with what is going on in Tanah Melayu today. The lack of clear direction by the Malays both the Leaders (government and opposition) as well as general Malay Rakyat.
    Personally, I never new there was a Social Contract coz I deep in my heart, that the Malays are still oppressed and subjugated though not by the British but by the British stooges. These stooges a few of them are my own close relations. They hijacked the effort of Panglima Bongkok, Datok Bahman, Mat Kilau, Ishak Haji Muhammad (Pak Sako) and many others who are the true Freedom Fighters of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. These warriors, their followers and families were the true liberators of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. Their own weakness lets others hijacked their cause and effort. They were the trough Perjuang Tanah Melayu. The scars are still there. They were the unsung Heroes of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. They are not only forgotten but buried and hardly mentioned in nation history. These were designed by the British and so called fathers of independent and cohorts. But than, what’s the points of blaming others for our mistakes and failures. It should remain as lesson and never to repeat them again.
    These were all faults of us all – the Malays, the so call Malays and our Leaders – who are have no faith in themselves and Allah. They were so gullible and never cared about – what is going to be the long term implication to their future generations. Remember, Perang Dusun Nyior? Bintang 3? Perang Semantan? And many more…only if we only care of future…
    I never heard of my parent, grand parent, relations who were freedom liberators ever talk of “Social Contract”. They and myself never a party to such a contract.
    Nasi Sudah Jadi Bubur – personally I cannot accept it but forced to live with it. Failing which Tun knows what is the consequences. The consequences of living with this detrimental social contract are what happening in my Persekutuan Tanah Melayu Today. A few of my relation now reside outside this beloved motherland Tanah Melayu. So unfortunate. It sounds just like the Last Mughal King – Zafar.
    You are a doctor Tun, you used to say – the way to treat cancer is at source. How true we believed, prevention is always better than cure. Alas, still not too late to correct the situation but soberly. We need – never to let emotion to run negatively. So much I envision that Persekutuan Tanah Melayu should be order of the day but … there is no way that Persekutuan Tanah Melayu is going to be reborn again coz most Malays especially the young and Professional were ignorant of their root. Many believe they are Pendatang – coz they do not know history of Kepulauan Melayu that stretch from Formosa (Taiwan) in the north to Burmese border to Australia excluding Java. So any movement of the Malay stocks with the region is not considered as migration, like the migration of English, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, and Indian to region outside their motherland. Internal movement within motherland Tanah Kepulauan Melayu cannot be considered as migration similar to the international migration say from China to America.
    The worst is that the Malays – are fond of letting others move forward in front of themselves – to champion their cause. This result in others and seculars and westernized to lead and hijacked their cause. Subsequently, the Malay right and interest relegated to the back, side tracked if not oppressed.
    To bake a better cake or dish now – without having to remove or reduce the core ingredient the Malay Leaders and Rakyat need ber Muhasabah Diri, seek Allah’s guidance for the good of every one. Insyallah, a better and tastier cake will be produced. Just like a movie every one has an important role to play. However, we Malay must write a good script and direct it for future well being without having needed to be suckers to anyone or any group.
    Last let’s take matters to heart and seek light from Allah for a better future!

    “For all this talk about the “suffering” malay people in Singapore, not a single one of them would give up their Singaporean Citizenship and come back to Malaysia,& the fact is there are many succesful malays in singapore in relation to their population, ie minority.”
    ——————————————————————–
    For your info, a lot of Singaporean malays are now Malaysian citizens. A lot more had requested for Malaysian citizenship but were rejected.

    salam buat Tun
    Rakyat Malaysia perlu ingat bahawa orang luar tunggu masa saja untuk masuk jd tak perlu la kita emosional sangat nak ikut semua orang marah kalau dikata bukan-bukan tapi klu dah jd huru hara jgn salahkan orang lain…yg sya nampak skrg ni kerajaan Bn skrg dibawah DSAAB perlu kepimpinan baru ….jd faham faham le. Tentang kontrak sosial ni orang muda byk yg masih tak faham dan orang lama pula ada yg buat tak faham ni masalanya kena ada penekanan dlm pekara ni pada golongan muda..klu kita tengok negara negara luar yg bermasalah punca utama adalah kekayaan negara dikawal oleh satu golongan saja yg lain tersisih jd kena betulkan pekara ni dulu…tp yg mustahak rakyat malaysia kena banyak sabar….

    Hey Dr M,
    Racism is a bloody excuse used by every politician in the world to ignite flames of hatred to get the citizens out to vote AGAINST the other party.
    The fragile harmony between races can only be maintained if life is good. Once that is gone, blame is cast on the person who speaks differently, who behaves differently, who looks differently. He took our future! He took our money! He took our lands! He caused all of our bad happenings!
    This isn’t something unique to malaysia alone. This happens all the time to other countries.

    As advice to the current weak leaders, what would you have done after Ahmad Ismail’s comments?

  46. chin Sep 13,2008 11:48 PM

    Dear Samuraimelayu,
    I do know the different between now and then.
    “I must admit the retrogression of their viewpoint but this is becoming more current as the debate on the social contract goes on.”
    The Tun suggested this view in his blog, I only suggest the consequence.
    As for PR, no need to be nasty. I believe PR does offer a viable alternative to BN. I believe in competence, accountability and transparency in a government or any form of leadership for that matter. Datuk Khalid, Datuk Nizar and LGE are doing a much better job than their BN predecessors.

    SALAM BUAT TUN SEKELUARGA,
    Saya tertarik dengan komen pembaca, “lepas Anwar jadi Perdana Menteri, Guan Eng jadi Timbalan Perdana Menteri” Tan Sri Khalid boleh jaga KKDN (Keselamatan Khinzir Dalam Negara” – ini saya tambah sendiri). Tapi kalau Anwar Ibrahim padam (mati) kiata akan dapat YANG AMAT BERHORMAT PERDANA MENTERI MALAYSIA DATUK SERI LIM GUAN ENG .. bagus.. bagus .. Syabas penyokong PKR..

    Dont blame the chinese for working hard and earn money. The social contract has been 50 years until now and I don’t see it works or maybe only works for certain rich malays.
    If the malays are still ‘sleeping’ (sorry for that) and expect the government would help them then go ahead. But do not blame the others race.

  49. Beyond The Fence Sep 13,2008 10:28 PM

    I am sorry to put my comments as such Tun. I am myself a non malay and in my personal view, we are not trying to seize power as perceived. I for one am not against policies that can help the bumiputras. The questions regarding the social contract is some malicious agenda of certain quarters or could even be from Malaysians standing up for equality for all that matter. We as matured Malaysians should be allowed to debate on issues that concern us all. In the end, a compromise can always be met. We can do so because we are after all brothers and sisters living in this blessed land. There is no point for us to challenge one another for in the end, it will not benefit anyone.
    However, what I am really against is the way the policies are executed. Helping my fellow Malays to alleviate them from poverty and provide them with opportunities to compete with the rest of the races is of no issue. That is in fact what equality is all about. Everyone should be given the tools to compete. But in reality, are they being given the help as promised? What we can see now are the policies only benefit certain quarters of the Malay population. These people who happen to be relatives or friends of people in power could be a coincidence. But sometimes too much coincidence can be harmful to the way we as laymen, in forming our perceptions.
    I am all for the NEP and the political dominance of the malays because they are in the end, my fellow Malaysians too. But changes should come in how the NEP is executed and this should be done in a transparent manner. I do believe that the non malays will have no problem if the money spent are for the deserving malays.
    The social contract must never be used to hide the actual issue here. Good day.

  50. delphi Sep 13,2008 8:48 PM

    Dear Sir,
    I am a little younger than you. My brother was your junior at medical school. Like you, I was born and received my education before the affirmative program. While I was at school my father concentrated on giving education to my brothers and did not have enough money to buy me books, or even sufficient changes of school uniforms. I missed days of school because the one uniform was being washed. I could not join in the extra curricula activities because of lack of money to buy uniform for the ‘Red Cross, and shoes, clothes, sports gear for sports activities.
    I was the best sprinter in my year. In classroom work I achieved first and second positions until form three when the lack of funds for books, extra curricula activities and missing school really took their toll. My classmates who were academically less able and could not out-run me in the sports field but who were well supported by their families did much better than me at Senior Cambridge. Their families could afford to buy them rackets and they excelled at badminton while I looked from the sidelines. (I once played with borrowed rackets but without shoes and wore off the bottom of my heels and soles, they were raw and bleeding).
    Most of the well-off, though not all, were Chinese. My Indian friends suffered worse fate than me. Many left school before Senior Cambridge. Some sold milk and tended cows before and after school. I had many Chinese friends, however. Some lent me their books; some bought me lunch when I was too hungry to be too proud to accept their charity. The majority of our teachers were Chinese. There was a strong feeling of nationalism in discussions between the Chinese teachers and my Chinese classmates. It was a time when Mao Tze Tung was on the rise. We Malays were not part of the social interactions. We took part in Christian prayers and cathecism. We had no choice. I left school with very low self-esteem.
    After school with a an average result it was impossible for me to find jobs. In Penang, many of the interviews I attended were conducted by Chinese interviewers. They found ease in conducting some of the interviews in Chinese. One by one my Chinese friends found jobs or went off to do further studies. One by one they drifted away from me.
    Circumstances took me to the UK where I studied as a mature student. I recovered my self-esteem because through grants, discretionary awards and affirmative action by the British Government I gained a good degree from a red brick university, received further awards for best student of faculty and scholarships for a Masters and research for a PhD.
    I believe in affirmative action. I believe there is a need to protect those who are disadvantaged, especially but not exclusively, there is a need to protect domestic players in Malaysia. We have to acknowledge that there is a strong international Chinese and international Indian network that are not accessible to Malays.
    I also believe that in Malaysia today we are looking at the wrong picture. We need to ask those with the majority of wealth and economic strength in Malaysia, be they Chinese, Indians or Malays to be partners in affirmative action. Chinese owned and Chinese dominated corporations should ensure that their employees reflect the population mix of Malaysia. Malay owned and Malay dominated corporations and private companies should do likewise.
    I was shocked when I returned to Malaysia a decade or so ago to find racist practices in Chinese operated corporations. I was shocked to find Malays willing to ‘sell’ their Bumi status for pittance, sometimes just for being given the chance to be employed in lowly jobs, so their employers could become eligible for contracts reserved for Bumiputra companies. I was shocked to hear stereotype racist remarks about Malays and Indians at Board meetings and interview panels. I was shocked to hear Chinese contractors talk about sharing contract funds but not skills. I was shocked to find rich Malays ‘rob’ small Bumiputra companies of contracts. Even more shocked to find rich and well connected Malays go into partnership with ‘Ali-Baba’ companies to out-wit the social contract.
    The present government is unequal to the challenges that face it. The can of worms is ready to explode.
    The social contract is sound. There is a need to outline how the social contract should be implemented in the spirit that it was formulated. Wise men and women should think about how privileges public and private should be shared. We need wise people in this time of tension. We should be looking for wise women and men to come forward to work together before everything collapses around us.
    It is so sad to hear racists and anti-racists using racist arguments in place of sensible reasoning. Pak Lah has to do something quickly, take a firm hand or walk away.

    Dear YAB Tun.Dr.M,
    I would like to thank Shaik Rizal Sulaiman for his excellent posting above which was re-posted again By babacurious…
    To run 100M in Olympics, he or she must run the 100M dash….To win 100M gold one must finish the race ahead of everyone…This need a lot of hardwork and dedication to prepare your self for the race.
    You will not win the gold by running 80M by claiming for special rights and previledge….
    This same goes to our lifes….There’s no short cuts in life. One could succeed only with hardwork and dedication….If there’s a way to succeed wothout hardwork and dedication that could be from the wrong way or the “Haram” way….
    Thank you.

    Salam Ramadhan Tun, maaf kalau tajam sikit ( belajar dari Tun juga).
    Saya nak pinjam tajuk lagu Tan Sri SM Salim,
    “Apa nak jadi”….
    La… kan Tanah Melayu dah merdeka jadi Malaysia,bukan Malaya lagi, dah 51 tahun… ikut Mat Salleh kata ni dah “Golden Age”. Tapi sedihnya revolusi pemikiran kita orang Malaysia (baik Melayu, Cina, India dll) masih terbalik, macam belia 15 tahun, masin “Green”. Tak sudah-sudah bercakar tentang HAK.
    Semua pun dah tahu kita kan rojak alias Gado-gado, Melayu rojak, Cina rojak, India rojak, yang lain lain pun rojak… kan sedap… kan “GRAND”, sapa kata rojak tak sedap ?? tak “GRAND” ??? tak percaya ? tengok saja yg Grand dah jadi PREMIER… Pak Lah ada Cina-nya, Tun ada India-nya, Tunku ada Siam-nya; saya lagi rojak,ada Indon-nya !! (Banjar + Minangkabau + Jawa + Bugis !!)
    Terimalah hakikat “Gado-gado” kita, jangan “Gaduh-Gaduh”. Masing masing ada hak,bukan hanya di dunia, sampai ke akhirat pun kita ada hak, pilih saja, nak hak Syurga atau hak neraka. Tepuk dada tanya selera. Pilihan di tangan kita.
    Masaalahnya, yg jadi kelakar bercakar macam antara kucing dgn anjing dgn beruk pasal apa ? dah tahu kita semua kan PENDATANG, hanya si Semang, si Senoi, si Jakun dan si Dayak yg masih terpinggir di tepi “Hutan Simpanan” tu yg benar-benar Anak Melayu.
    Jadi bersyukurlah kita menjadi Melaysia campuran dan kacukan, macam rojak lah… macam “Gado-gado” lah.. Malaysia makin cantik kalau gado-gado, lihat saja, Grago Grago di Malaysia! semuanya top-top models, singers, actors, musicians, dan juga… First Lady Malaysia kita! Reka-bentuk bangunan-bangunan di Putrajaya pun gado-gado (east + west).. AIR ASIA yg dah jadi World Brand Icon tu pun CEO-nya gado-gado !!.
    Banggalah jadi rakyat Malaysia, BANGSA MALAYSIA,Bangsa Majmuk. Hidup-lah kita dengan rukun, kan dah ada Rukun Negara, tak taulah sekarang Rukun Tentangga macamana… Nampaknya kenalah Kementerian Pelajaran mengkaji semula isi matapelajaran SEJARAH disekolah supaya isinya boleh membawa pemikiran sihat dan melihat fakta dari sudut ” the truth” tentang asal usul Melayu, “Tanah Melayu” dan Raykat Malaysia dan “Bangsa Malysia”.
    Mungkin dengan begini sahaja generasi “Malaysia Baru” dapat menerima hakikat Gado-gado di negara sendiri …(hah ?… MALAYSIA BARU ???). Dan mungkin begini saja pemikiran mereka tak “Green” lagi walau nanti dah “Golden Age”.
    Apa nak jadi,apa dah jadi,
    Sampai sekarang masih begini…..
    tak heran-lah lagi kalau begini,
    sekarang dah ada ” MALAYSIA KINI “…..
    Tun, Selamat berbuka puasa dgn “Teh tarik Mamak”,”kue-tiau kerang” dan “onde-onde” ( laaaa… yg mana dari Tanah Melayu ?? )

  54. babacurious Sep 13,2008 6:03 PM

    My dearest TDM
    In today’s news on the arrests with the use of ISA, our government is virtually turning the country into confusion. Is our government for real? The show cause letters send to the daily papers clearly shown that there will not be freedom in their reporting as long as it does not favour the government. Bear in mind, the politicians are the ones who politicise sensitive issues and what nots in the first place. How and where else can those reporters or journalists get their facts? Strangely and sadly, the poor journalist among others, got arrested under ISA. It demeans the word freedom of journalism and reporting. If sensible truth can’t be told and heard..it’s better to shut down all media and IT technology and industries in the country and return to stone age era, where we can all live in caves and trees happily..rather than be governed by hypocrites with a 3rd world mentality.
    “For our own past is covered by the currents of action, but the torment of others remains an experience, unqualified unworn by subsequent attrition. People change and smile but the agony abides.”

    salam,
    Tun futurist, I sokong you masuk kerajaan.
    Racist here and there. Everyone is racist in some form.
    It’s hard to remove them. It’s genetically embedded in them.
    Ppl start believing they’re the best from others.
    We live in a very fragile social fabric interleaving multi cultural and ethnic origin. We have found the way to achieve the best interleaving factor since 51 years back. This may enable us to work and live together. But now people (read Malaysian) start to question them subliminally without their implication towards our social bonding. Everyone will start shouting until frustration and anger slowly build inside them.
    I’m agree if we remove anything that may cause this. This may sound radical. But I believe this is the best way to achieve another 2nd best interleaving factor.
    1. Remove any languages, leaving only Bahasa Malaysia and Bahasa Inggeris. (ppl always asking his/her native language. denial is the answer for them)
    2. Other than this considered foreign language.
    3. Start revamping our education. Primary school will learn Bahasa Malaysia (20%) and Bahasa Inggeris (80%) extensively in every subject.
    4. The availability of foreign language may consider plus point for that school.
    5. No more private school. Private school must registered with the KDN. Their teachers and funders will subjected to their thumb print scanned and DNA recorded for national security purposes.
    6. Pirate CD’s sellers and imitation material shall be categorized in Terrorist Acts. Treat this people as funding terrorist movement. Create another Malaysian type Guantinamo Prison detention camp.
    Don’t ask why, but this is the catalyst for Malaysian Malaysia.
    you won’t live like another country in malaysia.

    Salam Tun & fellow bloggers,
    1.Malays are famous with sopan santun,budi bahasa,timbangrasa which has been taken advantage by other races as merely weakness.We have also proverb like ‘beri betis nak paha’,a clear explanation of the recent frictions between races,relegion
    2.The term AMOK in the Dictionaries is unique to Malays,describing the tedencies to react totally out of mind when provoked.My advise to would be saboteurs to think twice
    3.’Belanda minta tanah’.Trickery is used to manipulate Malays sincerety in giving something like social contract,citizenship etc.Now they want Malay’s special right and policies to be abolished.Totally Jew’s thinking

    I’m racist…so be it
    Like an analogy ……if they are two boys drowning, one is a Malay boy and the other is a Chinese and I only capable of saving one,……. I will surely go for the Malay boy. Not that I hate that Chinese boy, it is just that I love the Malay boy more.
    And TELL ME if the Chinese is not racist……….
    If you are someone working at any Penang factory,I can assure you that after few years, you are most likely to be left out. Most of your Chinese ‘friends’ would be promoted first. NOT that they are better than you…it just it.
    Some Chinese out there are not even academically qualified, yet they will get the job based on their useless experience and ‘Kulit-fication’
    Try to check out their basic pay, even if you are at the same level with them, they get better pay.
    They certainly get better bonus and remuneration.
    Happen that they want to resign; they will certainly be countered offer first. Try your luck if you are Malay.
    I hardly see any Malay vendor; not even for the one selling paper clips. 100% Chinese
    Can anyone guess, why the Human Resource is loaded with Malay but Finance and Purchasing are almost 100% Chinese ?
    and the lists go on……
    P/s- having said this…though I’m capable of helping both…..I think I should just let the Chinese boy drown ..shouldnt I?

    Tun pernah bercakap Melayu Mudah Lupa…
    Masihkah Melayu ingat dalam kompeni Cina berapa kerat je Melayu yang pegang jawatan tinggi…
    Masihkah Melayu ingat dalam iklan kerja, berbahasa Mandarin jadi kelebihan..
    Masihkah Melayu ingat berapa banyak Tanah Melayu dah jatuh kepada bukan Melayu..
    Masihkah Melayu ingat bahasa Melayu bukan lagi bahasa utama..
    Masihkah Melayu ingat pada lagu warisan..
    Tapi yang pasti, Melayu asyik ingat nak kaya cepat sampai ZAKAT pun dah tak ingat….

    si muhyiddin pun flipflop. dulu ada peluang nak lawan paklah. dia pun ada peluang nak tunjuk sokongan kpd TuN. tapi dia pun flipflop mcm ramai sahabat dia di Umno.

    This is the first time I am reading TDM’s blog. Such diverse thinking compare to Malaysia Today. The reason, I am reading here is to be “educated” as I get to know both sides of the story. As judgement could be made and make me think further. Whatever happens today to the near future is all TDM legacy. It is a tough road ahead and winding too.

    Shaykh Illahi Baksh by behaving justly in accordance with the teachings of Islam managed to win over a whole community, they all embraced Islam.
    Something to reflect:
    How often do we fall into the sin of injustice..
    WHEN THE MALAY/MUSLIM WERE BEHAVING JUSTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TEACHINGS OF ISLAM BY ACCEPTING THE ‘UMMAH’ PENDATANG BUKAN ISLAM SEBAGAI WARGA NEGARA TANAH MELAYU/ISLAM, WE WERE NOT ‘EMBRACED’ BUT WERE ‘CONDEMNED’ FOR PROTECTING THE ‘RIGHTS’ OF THE MALAY/MUSLIM RAKYAT IN THEIR OWN LAND AND WHO HAD WELCOME THEM WITH OPEN ARMS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
    THESE UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE HAVE ‘ SUCKED THE BLOOD’ OF THE NATION AND STILL CLAIM INJUSTICE TOWARDS THEIR WELL BEINGS.
    THERE ARE MANY SUPERLATIVES AVAIL BUT TO CALL THEM ‘BELANDA MINTA TANAH’ AND ‘ SUDAH DAPAT PEHA, BETIS PUN NAK JUGA’ WUD SUFFICE.
    HUJAN EMAS DINEGERI ORANG, HUJAN BATU DINEGERI SENDIRI…

    Our immediate enemy is crime and economic growth – a safe home for our children and sustainable economy for all after our oil has been depleted. Wake Up Malaysian!!!
    Malay rights
    By Shaik Rizal Sulaiman
    The Malays are ‘technically’ in power governing the country but it is also this same controlling group that demands the right to correct economic imbalances and disparities for its own race.
    What does this say about the ‘majority governing’ Malay race for the last 50 years?
    I dare say that most Malaysians (regardless of race) below the age of 40 would like
    to see all opportunities be spread amongst those who deserve it on meritocracy.
    WE BELIEVE THE DAY WILL COME WHEN OPPORTUNITIES AVAIL THEN WILL BE SPREAD AMONGST THOSE WHO DESERVE ON MERITS BUT ONLY WHEN THE FOLLOWING ‘ELEMENTS’ HAVE VANISHED INTO OBLIVION.
    1. THE UNGRATEFUL CITIZENS OF MALAYSIA WHO DO NOT RESPECT WHAT HAVE BEEN ENSHRINED IN THE CONSTITUTION.
    2. THE RACIST CITIZEN WHO STILL INSIST ON THEIR RIGHTS TO THEIR MOTHER TONGUE AND CULTURES NOTWITHSTANDING THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.
    3. THE RACIST BUSINESS ‘COMMUNITIES’ THAT WILL PROTECT THEIR ‘ETHNIC’ INTERESTS AT ALL COST TO EXPAND THEIR BUSINESS BOUNDARIES AND POWERS.
    4. THE FOREIGN ‘AGENTS’ WHO CAMOUFLAGE IN THE NAME OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACIES AND WILL ALLOW THE COUNTRY TO BE COLONISED AGAIN.
    SO OUR FELLOW CRITICS AND DETRACTORS, DON’T JUST LOOK AT THE SMALL PICTURE OF ‘OPPORTUNITIES’ AND ‘MERITOCRACIES’ BUT THE BIGGER PICTURE OF THE NATIONAL ‘INTERGRATION’, THE ‘ERADICATION OF POVERTY’
    AND THE FAIR ‘DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH’.
    LET US BUILD THE NATION TOWARDS THE WAWASAN 2020 GOALS,
    MALAYSIA NEGARA MAJU!
    THE RAKYAT BOLEH, THE WAWASAN 2020 BOLEH, MALAYSIA BOLEH!

    Dear Tun,
    Social contract is needed to minimise the difference between the poor(Malay majority) and the rich(majority Chinese). It was agreed upon all parties in order avoid the bloodshed of 13th May.I don’t really understand why there are people politising this issue. I fully with you agree only minority of Malays who do not agree with this. But to me, the non Malays especially the Chinese should not question this issue knowing the fact they are controlling Malaysian economy(private sector and govt).Pls understand even in Govt sector(hospitals,universities,infrastructure and others), the Chinese are still getting most of projects through many Malay proxies.So, why the fuss? We know the facts the proxies(alibabas) were only allocated olny 2-5% commissions as a token for their wilingness to let people abuse their license.I blame both sides, the Malays who sold their pride and priviledge and also the Chinese who made use of the Malay rights. I agree with a win-win partneship but not this win-lose.Please remember economic imbalance had caused lots of chaos, claimed lots of lives in many countries in the world. The nearest example was our neighbour Indonesia.Are we willing to see this in Malaysia? Malaysia is not at least as bad as Indonesia and Thailand whereby you dont see any Chinese schools , and YOU ARE NOT FORCED TO CHANGE YOUR NAME.
    P/S,
    Tun(if you are back in the Govt)…please do something on Alibabas(Malays) and their Masters(Chineses). They are destroying the NEP and stern actions should be taken.

    This is reason enough for the East Malaysian states to support Pakatan Rakyat.

    Dear Tun and all readers,
    First, let me recommend pakpandir08’s comment to all readers. This is the kind of comment mature Malaysians should post — objective concise and to the point.
    Also let me highlight this comment from another reader:
    “DEB /NEP is a priviledge to bumiputras so why the hell would you want it to let it go in the 1st place.” — Shamsulfahmi Shamsudin (September 12, 2008 4:15 PM)
    This is typical of the Malay thinking, in my opinion, judging from the comments that have been plastered all over this blog. But if we care to probe just one question deeper, and ask, “Why not?” Would anyone be able to give me a definitive answer? Please, seriously, I want to know your answer.
    The one glaring question that leaps out of the NEP is, what exactly is the difference between Malay poverty, Chinese poverty and Indian poverty? Unless you could be so inhumane to suggest that Chinese or Indian poverty does not deserve sympathy and a viable solution because this land did not belong initially to their forefathers, I really don’t see how you could even attempt to justify it.
    The NEP has a very noble objective, we have been made to believe, and I want to believe it does. But we have seen that it has been abused by those who have most to gain from it but who do not need it. The reason this has happened is because the rationale behind the NEP is flawed to begin with. And knowing the nature of those who will continue to implement the NEP, we know that the flaws in the NEP must be removed to eliminate any possibility of it being abused again in the future. That means formulating a truly noble policy that the NEP purports but has failed to be, without the inherent flaws of the NEP that makes it so susceptible to abuse. That means change not just in the implementation of the policy but also the policy itself.
    I simply cannot understand, if one could have such unflattering opinions of our politicians, to the point of calling them stupid robbers and sodomites, how could one at the same time entrust them to implement with great integrity and honesty a policy so open to abuse such as the NEP?

    We r to be nation-builders n look after the weak, poor n marginalised.
    It is always good n right to look after these comminuties that cannot succeed by themself whether there r bumi, non-bumi or even aliens.
    I hope we average hardworking, quiet, moderate, kindhearted n loving Malaysian one day form the majority that see a great Malaysia bloom. I pray there will be a leader like this will come from the new young generation.
    This is our land, our forefathers came from Indonesia, India, China, UK, Portugal, Mynamars, Bangladesh etc…., we will live here, scarifice here n die in this proud land of our birth.

    Salam Ayahenda Tun yang saya hurmati,
    Izinkan saya turunkan disini ucapan Tun VT Sambanthan, salah seorang tokoh pemimpin dahulu untuk tatapan pengunjung2 muda di blog Tun ini.
    Maybe we can reflect on the gratefulness of a former respected leader whilst on the subject of “Social Contract”:
    – UCAPAN PRESIDEN MIC merangkapMENTERI KERJAYA RAYA, POS DAN TELEKOM, TUN V.T. SAMBANTHAN DI DEWAN RAKYAT PADA 1 JUN 1965.
    “Now, in 1955 we won the elections with a great majority. Then we obtained freedom in two years time. During this period, we had to discuss citizenship and various other things. Now what did the Malays do – since we are speaking on racial lines – what did the Malay leadership do? They had 88 percent of the electorate still with them. What did they do with citizenship?
    If we look around in Asia and East Asia, particularly, you will find that my race the indian race, is not welcomed in Ceylon, is not welcomed in Burma. Look at my brother Chinnese race, it is not welcomed in Thailand, in Vietnam, in Cambodia, in all the other areas. What help do they get for citizenship in all these territories? In Burma, as we know, Indian have been send packing, in Ceylon they refused them citizenship and in Burma it is likewise. I know it, you know it. And yet in Malaya what happened? Here we found that the Malay leadership said, “We shall take them unto ourselves as brothers, we shall give them full opportunity to live in this country, we shall give them every opportunity to become citizens.” And so, in 1957, for the whole year, we waived language qualifications, and tens of thousand of Indians, Chinnese, Ceylonese and others became citizens…
    As I said, it has been my great good fortune to have been born in this country. Where else can you find a more charitable, a more polite, a more decent race than Malay race? Where else can you get such politically decent treatment for any immigrant race? Where else in the history of the world? I ask you. These are the facts. Who are you to safeguards us? I am 10 percent minority race here. But I am happy here.”
    Semoga Tun berada di dalam kandungan sihat wal’afiat.
    Wassalam ~ Guruh

    If the Tunku and the non-Malay leaders did not accept the proposed Federal Constitution, Melayu Raya would have either meant that we continue to be a British colony or be part of Indonesian (remember the Indonesian confrontation).
    Malaysia would not exist. So these people who condemn the Tunku are traitors to Malaysia.
    BTW, Malaysia would not have existed without the British. The Malay peninsular was controlled by a collection of warring sultans, the Dutch and Siam before the British came along.

    “Chinese are racist. Malay with engineering diploma RM1000 per month, Chinese with SPM RM1500 + OT. That is a common scenario in Chinese construction company.” – haha
    In the racist sense, we all are the same. Malay companies also discriminate against chinese. What more, the government (obviously a malay government) policies all discriminates against chinese. Actually the chinese would have no place to go if not private sectors. BUT, there’s a huge difference that makes chinese companies more successful than malay companies. That is, the chinese employees are generally better quality and more efficient than the malay employees, for some reasons, sometimes even an SPM holder is better than a degree holder if he can do the work better. So, when the chinese companies prefer chinese employees actually is for their quality. And, when the malays prefer malay employees is for their ketuanan sense, overlooking quality and efficiency as a key ingredient to a company’s success.
    HOWEVER, don’t look at the just the surface. In ten year’s time, the chinese with just an SPM would at most promoted to a site supervisor, while the malay with an engineering diploma, would probably promoted to a project manager, if he can perform. One of the major misperception of youngster nowadays is what the paper can do when they graduate. The paper is a jumping stone for the rest of your career life while experience is not. The paper is an assuarance to the employer that the employee had gone through years of thirtiery education and he would’ve gain enough analytical skills to handle more difficult tasks, when there’s promotion opportunity. You earn 1000 doesn’t mean you’re stuck there for the rest of your life. He got 1500 doesn’t mean he’ll be better in the future.
    If you only have an SPM, you cannot tell the boss, “now I have more experience, about the vacancy for the manager post….” With experience, you could bargain for a better pay during the interview, but after that it is all up to your work performance, and in every company, there are ranks and certain academic requirements must be fulfilled before promotion is proposed to the said candidate. So, jangan kecil hati if you see a person earn a little more now. Look at what yourself can do in ten years time.
    Unfortunately, the qualities of our public universities have been degraged by so many affirmative actions and therefore, the perception of qualities of the malays in the commercial market also affected. It’s a sad fact. Just look at the number of malays and chinese that are able to join Intel. Do you think Intel will just pick chinese just because they are chinese?

    What is wrong with “Special Rights” ? Haha asked.
    Why does the Arabs hate America?
    Why does the working American and Australians hate their government?
    Why are some Malays so rich and the majority so poor?
    No need to learn from Chinese, just look to your leaders, they are already so rich but they still want “Special Rights”

  78. chin Sep 12,2008 5:56 PM

    “they suggested that the Malays resort to armed struggle and co-operation with a neighbouring country. They suggested that we should have formed Melayu Raya together with this neighbouring country”
    This is reason enough for the East Malaysian states to support Pakatan Rakyat.

  79. haha Sep 12,2008 5:52 PM

    What is so wrong with special right,that the Malays feel shy to keep it. The poor or jobless American get free monies for food with their special security numbers. The Israelis get special privileges from the American to request and use any weapon they want to wipe out the Arabs. The Israelis are even asking more for the American aid even in cash. Many Israelis are rich and yet they are not shy to ask for more help. Whats wrong with the Malays? in their own land they are shy to ask for help. The Malays must learn from the Chinese and Indians, the more you have the more you ask and demand! orang kata bodoh you marah…????????

  80. chin Sep 12,2008 5:47 PM

    Tun,
    I agree with your unfortunate prognosis.
    UMNO racist politics has created this situation.
    This “certain country”, lets just call it Indonesia provided much of the immigration to this country after independence and before.
    I am afraid their sense of nationalism is quite different, they have families still in Indonesia and may well support the other side.
    Well you reap what you sow.
    If there is a conflict between Indonesia and Malaysia, guess who you will have to depend on to fight this conflict, the Indians and Chinese.
    And the phenomenon is not new, you have just been ignoring it because it benefited you.

  81. interesting Sep 12,2008 5:31 PM

    Dear Tun
    In the twilight of yr years, u can do more right by:
    i)Speaking good n kindness to all races.
    ii)Cause to unite all races to be Malaysian.
    iii)Promote the moderate,liberal n open minded Malaysian leaders.
    iv)Speak out against all sort of racialism n extremism.
    Let make make our next generation believe there is a Malaysian Malaysia.
    Sure there are risks but then again, all eventual good things that happened in the history of mankind are made by leaders who believe the right principles.

  82. anakmalaysia Sep 12,2008 5:14 PM

    Dear Haha,
    Please do not make a generalised statement saying that there are non malays cannot speak decent bahasa kebangsaan? Have you forgoten the Non Malays resided in East Malaysia?? They speak better bahasa malaysia than most of the true malays in Penasular Malaysia or Tanah Melayu! Please do not emphasized too much of certain racial issue when Malaysian are striving for mutual unity. When we are in Malaysia we do as Malaysian. Nothing more than that.

    I sent an update y’day to this BLOG – looks like TDM did not publish it because it must have touched some nerve
    TDM (and supporters) I know there are hundreds of response and it’s hard to keep track, and that one probably fell through the cracks.
    I also understand it’s better to publish idiotic comments from some i.e apanama, JJJ, and one’s like “whoo hoo, I am the first”
    but not a structured argument especially from those who oppose your views.
    Well, I have one thing to say – I am not challenging Malay rights. Far from it, I am asking for mutual respect. I don’t want to take my Malay Bretheren riches or entitlements. First and foremost, remove any reference of BANGSA from our birth certificates, identity cards, and any legal identification implements. All those Malaysians who were given the rights of citizenship have only one BANGSA – it’s MALAYSIA.
    Don’t segregate with this categorisation first. Next, drop the concept of National type/vernacular schools. We have one schooling system – National schools. Give the same level of education. if you did those 2 things, you will start seeing more integration from the community because it’s the vision of the country to be seen as one BANGSA.
    Don’t keep segregating by classifying India, Cina, Lain Lain etc. If you want to promote the concept of Malaysianism – do it sincerely!
    JJJ – mate, do you have a point to make with your comment. Are you concerned that I make a more qualified argument than you. What kind of an idiot are you?
    (Ravi)

    Dear Tun,
    I must say that those who rejects DEB/NEP will not be rejecting the “THE POLICY” if the “THE PEOPLE AND PROCEDURES IN PLACE INDICATE GOOD GOVERNANCE AND PERCEIVED TO BE FAIR, EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE” while implementing DEB.
    To those Malays who rejects DEB/NEP,please make sure that you observed things from a macro perspective as well. Look beyond your “so-called successful social circles”. Look beyond today or tomorrow before you all even try to condemn it totally.
    DEB /NEP is a priviledge to bumiputras so why the hell would you want it to let it go in the 1st place. You all so well off so no need to think about other bumis who need this priviledge? So sick of this so-called rich and educated Malays who rejects DEB /NEP.

    Assalamualaikum dan selamat sejahtera kepada pembaca blog ini.
    Saya sering membaca artikel disini kerana mempunyai nilai ilmiah dari pandangan dari Tun Dr. Mahathir.
    1. Sedikit persoalan kepada Pak Lah…minta rakyat berhemat dalam berbelanja dan kerajaan pun telah menarik balik peruntukan kerajaan ketika harga minyak di paras tertinggi..
    2. Tak lama selepas harga minyak mengalami penurunan di pasaran antabangsa, (walaupun harga barang lain masih tak turun) kerajaan sekarang dah menunjukkan sikap borosnya dengan mengadakan lawatan ke Taiwan dimana 49 Menteri pergi untuk lawatan sambil belajar.
    3. Persoalan saya kenapa perlu pergi sehingga 49 orang ke Taiwan,…ini namanya perbelanjaan berkhemat ke? Cakap tak serupa bikinlah….erm….berapa agaknya kos lawatan tersebut….???

  86. haha Sep 12,2008 3:26 PM

    Dear Tun,
    Racial sentiment still exist due to Malay leadershps, for they allow other schools to exist till today- the barrier for true Malaysian unity. With these schools around, after 51 years of independent there are still non-Malays who cannot speak decent bahasa kebangsaan. It looks as if all the PMs never allow their education ministers to visit, Thailand, Phillipines, Indonesia and others. Also there are Tamil and Mandarin news at our radios and TVs. All these misunderstandings/misinform are due tak faham bahasa kebangsaan. If we continue with the same trend, in another hundred years the same thing will happen. The Malays will loose their motherland, but the Chinese still have mainland China, and the Indian still have Indian continent.
    When you are in Rome do as the Roman did, why, this saying is not fit when it come to dealing with the Malays? Learn from our neighbours how to achieve unity. Non-Malays must be allowed to learn their languages privately.No compulsion in Religion. Up to each soul.

    Subject: Malay Rights – Excellent article
    Our immediate enemy is crime and economic growth – a safe home for our children and sustainable economy for all after our oil has been depleted. Wake Up Malaysian!!!
    Malay rights
    By Shaik Rizal Sulaiman
    The Malays are ‘technically’ in power governing the country but it is also this same controlling group that demands the right to correct economic imbalances and disparities for its own race.
    What does this say about the ‘majority governing’ Malay race for the last 50 years?
    I dare say that most Malaysians (regardless of race) below the age of 40 would like
    to see all opportunities be spread amongst those who deserve it on meritocracy.
    We do not need the keris anymore to tell others to be careful of what they say and do because in the survival of the fittest, the keris is of very little relevance!
    If we continue to hide under the ‘bumiputera’ tempurung as most Malays have been in the last 50 years or more, the catch-up game will just get harder and the gap wider.
    If we continue to expect without earning it, we will never learn how to be a race that succeeds on merit. There is NO substitute for merit. The Malay politicians continue to shout about Malay rights and bumiputera rights because the very nature of our local politics is sadly racially biased.
    In this day and age, a great nation is built upon joint success stories, meritocracy and the combined hard work of its people WITHOUT any fear or favour of racial biased politics governing our daily policies. Sadly, the Malay politicians have ended up completely corrupt, racialists, twisted religious fanatics.
    I am below 40 and as much as I love the ‘idea’ that Malaysia is tanah tumpahnya darah orang Melayu, I can’t help but also feel that this country is for ALL Malaysians alike including the Chongs, the Kumars, the Xaviers, the Singhs & Kaurs etc who were born
    on the same day in the same hospital as me here in Malaysia.
    If we feel that WE (the Malays) deserve this country more than THEM , then WE (the Malays) should have shown them a long time ago that we deserve the ‘control all’ status.
    We have to earn it. The policies FAILED because the very concept of Malay rights or the NEP/DEB is like a double-edged sword. On one hand, it aims to eradicate wealth disparity but on the other, it has made the Malays oblivious of what reality is. Our (Malays) success is only reflected in the ‘perceived’ political power which today can collapse in a matter of minutes. I would also like to see my children succeed in their country, Malaysia, for reasons that true success should be based upon, which are merit and hard work and NOT because they are Malays or bumiputeras. For as long as the Malays don’t see this, there is very little point in fighting for Malay rights..
    It just makes us look more ridiculous. We have taken this notion of being privileged a bit too literally in that it now simply means we want this country and its fruits all for ourselves without accepting the responsibilities that come with it. I blame the MALAY politicians for this because we want to only fight the cause without strategising for the true substance and need of the cause.
    We have been given fish all the while without being taught how to fish.
    It’s funny how two different generations can be so diverse in their thinking and the recent elections proved just that. We are no longer concerned with racial problems but more so the never-ending Malay agenda issues. The rakyat has spoken and the landscape has drastically changed. Is this change welcomed? Is it good?
    The answer is ‘NO’.
    Because we, the Malays, have been caught with our pants down – we are not ready to compete on any level playing field (we can’t even compete on advantageous grounds!). Even with three or five more continuing policies for Malay rights or bumiputera privileges over the next 50 years, we will still be in exactly the same position as we are in today.
    The truth hurts and the truth will always prevail.
    And the truth of what’s to come will NOT go away.
    I am cynical perhaps because I feel that Malay rights is NOT relevant anymore.
    The right to be safe, to be treated fairly, to have a world-class healthcare and education,
    to enjoy equal prosperity, to have good governance, to live in a clean environment and
    to be war-free is what I want for my Malaysia.
    NOT for MY race to be artificially powerful.
    If we want the Malays to fail, then by all means continue the fight for Malay rights.
    Go and polish your keris.
    ps
    In recent months we have seen the Syariah Courts allowing quite a few Malays to
    exercise their rights to a third or fourth wife. Fair, the guy may be able to provide
    for the financial & conjugal needs of his wives. However, question here is when
    he has a dozen kids, will he be able to provide a decent education and life to his
    kids or will he demand for his ‘Rights’ for subsidy and aid and be a burden to the
    govt and society.

    Dear Tun,
    Act now before its late. Perhaps the Kings or the military should do something tell this Pak Dollah to step down gracefully and they appoint a senior statesman. All should know who I mean Chedet lah. Let him repair all the damages done.It was he who made this mistake so he should be answerable for it. He should then hand over to somebody else, but remember he should still be in parliament as a goalkeeper.Look from behind what his players are doing so that he can guide them from behind.Yes correct, ini bukan chobaan ini betol-betol.Jangan sampai negri kena jual

  89. pakpandir08 Sep 12,2008 2:27 PM

    kadang-kala, ternyata adanya perbezaan dari segi pemikiran orang melayu dengan bukan melayu …
    dari komen-komen yg dipaparkan disini, nampaknya orang melayu mudah dipengaruhi oleh hujah-hujah tokoh politik … minda mereka lebih tulen sekiranya dibandingkan dengan kaum lain … sekiranya terdapat pemimpin yg betul-betul iklas untuk membantu mereka, kejayaan pasti dapat dicapai … namun sekiranya terdapat pemimpin yg berniat jahat, habislah masa hadapan orang melayu …
    cuba renungkanlah apakah yg dikatakan perbezaan dari segi minda ini:
    (1) kebiasaannya dikatakan di malaysia ini, orang bukan melayu menguasai ekonomi negara ini. Dari jumlah 10 orang kaya di malaysia, 1 orang melayu dan 9 orang bukan melayu
    – tokoh politik melayu suka mengapi-apikan perkara ini dengan mengatakan orang bukan melayu merampas harta mereka. Macamlah mereka menggunakan senjata dan rompak
    – Kerana inilah perbagai maki-hamun, surat layang, jampi, sihir hitam, toyol … ada pula yg menggesa memboikotkan kedai-kedai orang bukan melayu … macam-macam pattern ada …
    – Kebiasaannya orang bukan melayu menilai orang kaya ini dari minda yg berlainan. Dengan rasa ghairah untuk mengetahui apakan petua mereka ini berjaya …
    – Sekiranya meneliti latar belakang orang yg berjaya ini, semuanya terdiri daripada pendatang yg berselipar semasa sampai di tanah melayu dahulu. Tiada seorang pun yg berasal dari keluarga kaya secara SEMULAJADI
    – Dan ternyata sekali, petua hanyalah satu perkataan -> USAHA
    (2) Kaum bukan melayu lebih condong kepada pemikiran sendiri, tanpa mengikuti ulasan ahli politik secara membuta. Malah orang melayu lebih condong dengan mengikut apa sahaja yg dihujah oleh tokoh-tokoh politik
    – Sekiranya orang melayu mempunyai pemimpin yg ikhlas, nasib baiklah dan dapat mengecapi kejayaan. Tapi kalau mempunyai pemimpin yg berniat jahat, habislah tiada masa hadapan, kerana terikut-ikut sangat dengan pemimpin mereka
    Bagi orang bukan melayu, mereka menyoal dengan kontrak sosial kerana hanya satu sebab -> perkara ini dimain-mainkan oleh ahli politik terutamanya pemimpin melayu, dan bukannya dengan niat untuk mencabar …
    Cuba renungkan apakah masalahnya …
    (1) Sekiranya dasar pro-bumi yg telah dilaksakan selama sekian lama (lebih 20 tahun), masih tidak membawa hasil, mestilah ada sebabnya (2) Semasa orang melayu tidak puas hati kerana mereka miskin, tanpa berfikirkan mengapa mereka miskin, tetapi lebih cenderung untuk mengecam orang lain kerana mereka lebih kaya … dah tabiat ini disebabkan oleh pemimpin-pemimpin yg cuba mengapi-apikan semangat melayu demi mendapat sokongan politik
    Yang ternyata apa berlaku di negara ini adalah seperti berikut (yg menjadi sebab mengapa kontrak sosial disoalkan):
    (1) Pemimpin melayu yg tidak bertanggungjawab mempermainkan bangsa sendiri demi mengaut kekayaan
    (2) Adanya dasar-dasar yg pro-bumi secara sistematik, memberikan laluan kepada golongan ini tanpa sebarang persoalan
    (3) Kontrak kerajaan diberikan kepada bumiputera, tapi hanya kepada golongan ini sahaja. Bukannya kepada bumiputera yg sanggup berusaha dengan tekun
    (4) Kerana golongan ini tiada kepakaraan, maka kontrak yg didapati ini akan diberikan kepada sub-kontraktor. Dan sub-kontraktor ini biasanya kawan mereka yg tiada juga kepakaraan, dengan ini wujudlah sub-sub kontraktor dan sub-sub-sub xxxx …
    (5) Semua kontraktor ini mengaut keuntungan dengan perhubungan kepada golongan pemimpin ini yg tidak bertanggungjawab, dengan meninggikan kos perbelanjaaan .. hakikatnya projek-projek yg bernilai 1 juta menjadi 3 juta …
    (6) Keranalah peningkatan kos project kerajaan ini (secara umumnya untuk keperluan awam), maka rakyat jelita yg perlu menampung perbelanjaan ini sendiri .. hakikatnya, tamparan kos perbelanjaan dirasai oleh golongan miskin terutamanya orang melayu …
    (7) Apa yg menjijikan pada pandangan orang bukan melayu, adalah sikap pemimpin ini yg tidak bertanggungjawab. Selepas mengaut keuntungan yg besar ini, mereka pula mengapi-apikan semnagat orang melayu yg miskin dengan ulasan kononnya kaum bukan melayu yg merampas harta mereka, yg menyebabkan mereka miskin … hairannya orang melayu mudah percaya kepada golongan pemimpin ini (macamlah dikenakan jampi) … dan tidak pula renung isu ini dan mermerhatikan golongan pemimpin ini semuanya kaya-raya .. dimanakah wang mereka diperolehi? Dan siapakah yg merompak orang melayu miskin sebenarnya?
    Orang bukan melayu sedih kerana perkara ini berleluasa di negara ini … dasar pro-bumi yg sebenarnya diperlukan untuk membantu orang melayu yg miskin … tidak dapat dinikmati oleh golongan miskin, tetapi dirompak oleh pemimpin-pemimpin mereka sendiri (yg dikatakan berjuang untuk bangsa, agama dan negara -> kononya) …
    Dah 50 tahun kamu ditipu, sampai bilakah kamu mahu ditipu lagi? Sekiranya dasar itu dilaksanakan dengan betul, 20 tahun sudah dapat hasilnya …

  90. fyda Sep 12,2008 2:20 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Wishing you well and with good health!
    First and foremost, I thank you for creating this channel (I’ve been long waiting for something like this from you, Tun….to allow “us” to be “near” you…. to listen, think and analyse your thoughts/opinions, etc as well as to confine in you… at least by someone like me….who believes in you).
    This social contract issues have really pressing me to utilise this medium to communicate to at least someone I know would care very much of bangsa MELAYU. I have to admit, before this (current issue) I have the attidude of “sikap tidak ambil peduli” when our rights, etc been questioned by other races and other issues relating to races. As time goes by, many incidents happenned on our beloved land that demonstrated we are giving in a little bit of everything (indirectly)….and sedikit-sedikit our Malay leaders have to apologise. That is at political front. At personal level too, I experience the same…also indirectly…(as “this people” is very smart, but they will try very hard…)…where possible to pin down Malays particularly when they are working in Malay majority company. All this becomes more obvious with what is happening now (then, I realise what fool I was as I cannot see all this before i.e. the way they make use of you and even capitalise on your capability/capacity, etc). What I worry most is what going to happen to our future generation??….sons, daughthers, grandchildren??? Will they be independent on our own land…tanah tumpah darahku?????? As the results of this concern, I can no longer live with my “sikap tidak ambil peduli” anymore. I need to fall back badly on my people and my leader!!!!
    Dear Tun, please tell us (me) what to do to ensure that one day we are not fugitive on our own land?? Sorry to express this way (hope Tun doesn’t feel offended)…that we are very much lucky to still have you around….and that is why we can see you make an unexpected come back (this way)..but, what happenned when you are no longer with us?? (I’ll pray Allah cucurkan rahmat and kesihatan yang baik ke atas Tun and wife). Who going to be radical enough about all this?? Other races afraid of you (at the same time respect you…for your wisdom….proven..that’s why people always want to listen to what you have to say :):)), but we need more leaders that can protect our bangsa’s interest! So what can we contribute, whilst at the political front the politicians try to manage and deal with the situations (and hopefully, no more compromy). We need to register back in “their” minds not to questioned some rights and previlage allocated to the Bumiputera particularly Malays (relevant to current issues), but how are we going about it?? What being emphasised lately via newspapers, to me was merely stressing out the fact, but this people actually know about the fact, indeed very well. So, how to ensure that this rights & previlage issues would be the last (ever) things they have in mind to challenge?? e.g Peristiwa 13 May (I know it was bloody and tragic), on the other hand, greatful to this incident as I think this it actually holds prima facie to some of their reservations to question to much at one time.

  91. Renegade Sep 12,2008 2:06 PM

    Tun, is this only your own opinion? You are the one who rejects the social contract, not the MAJORITY of the liberal and educated young Malays. Please don’t try to speak on their behalf in trying to further your own agenda. Please don’t stir up racial sentiments by using the names of the young Malays. Why can’t you just write that you yourself think that the social contract should not be adhered to? Why drag the young Malays into this? What makes you think that you can speak on behalf of the MAJORITY young Malays? Is this really what they think? NO, this is only what you think they’re thinking and you could be wrong.

  92. feisal1616 Sep 12,2008 2:04 PM

    Dear Tun,
    I didnt get it the 1st time when u had to leave UMNO,but thank god U’re back. Now is the time we,UMNO loyalist needed u the most. I m disturbed with the current events that has plague the country lately. The threat of a takeover,racial tension, are becoming a dangerous uncertainty of late. I m disturbed to see the malay power being reduced to pieces and the fact that the so called “Malay professionals” wanting to give up their rights so easily….Whre is their loyalty to their own kind?Is it wrong for us,the malays to take care of our own kind?these days,whenever any of the malay leaders spoke about the malays and their rights,we are being labbeled as racist,but what about the comments coming from other races,for instance MP for Batu Gajah,Mp for Ipoh Timur and HINDRAF?Their actions cannot be defined as racist is it?And there is DSAI….i fought against u in 1998,believing in DSAI at that time…how i was wrong to go against u my dear Tun…DSAI to me is a traitor to the malay race…he is what they say as”cakap tak serupa bikin”. I did remember the time when DSAI brought up the matter of cronism,then u hit back by posting all of DSAI’s cronies on the at PWTC…that tun,was a nice touch. DSAI is a man on a mission,to be PM at all cost…even when he has to give his soul to the jews….is that the kind of a man u would want to be u’re PM…hell no…
    Anyway Tun…Im really glad u’re back…lets..as they say”kick some butt” during the coming UMNO election,lets remove the ignorant PM once and for all..and lets restore the malay’s sovereignity in our own land.
    Selamat Hari Raya Tun, May ALLAH bless u and u’re family…

    Kontrak sosial ini dinikmati oleh semua. Tak kira apa latarbelakang, agama dan bangsa di Malaysia. Jangan tipu anda tak merasa.
    DEB memberi peluang SAMARATA kepada yang daif bersaing secara sihat. Peribumi baik Melayu, Orang Asli, Kadazan, Iban dan lain-lain dapat bersaing dengan semua bangsa lain secara adil. Tidak ketinggalan orang India di Malaysia juga diberi peluang untuk bersaing dengan adil dengan adanya kuota untuk mereka. Malangnya mereka ini senada dengan chauvinist Cina yang meminta dimansuhkan DEB tanpa mengetahui kesannya kepada mereka sendiri.
    Jika semua kaum di Malaysia ini faham akan peranan dan kebaikan DEB, sudah tentu mereka tidak cakap banyak lagi. Malangnya mereka ini tidak faham sejarah dan tidak hormat akan perlembagaan Malaysia. Apakah mereka ini sepatutnya digelar rakyat Malaysia ?

  94. haha Sep 12,2008 1:01 PM

    Chinese are racist. Malay with engineering diploma RM1000 per month,
    Chinese with SPM RM1500 + OT. That is a common scenario in Chinese construction company. Melayu UMNO dont care becoz they are too busy making for themselves

  95. theWitch Sep 12,2008 12:47 PM

    These so called minority young Malay professionals are mainly those coming from rich family following western lifestyles. They never knew what hardship is. That’s why they forgot that the NEP has helped them in a way. Even though they might not benefit directly from the NEP, their parents or their grandparents might have. They also forgot how NEP really started and the history of Tanah Melayu and Malaysia.
    BTW, to those who don’t even know what’s going on with our education system, there’s not such thing as “Malay School” or “Sekolah Melayu” in Malaysia. The original Malay School prior to Merdeka did exist but the Malays were extremely generous as to give up Malay School to share with the rest. Thus, the National School or Sekolah Kebangsaan. But, do the Chinese and Indians give up their schools to be true and real Malaysians ? You tell me!

    I have become addicted to Tun Mahathirs blog, I find the many replies and posts on this site to be very interesting.It enables me to see the thoughts and views of so many of my fellow malaysians, It makes me proud to be a Malaysian when i see evidence that we have the ability to see thru the smokescreens of politicians and that more of us are rejecting their lies for the truth…
    I am also of the opinion that not discussing ‘sensitive’ issues is not the right way to address these issues, where we are actually “sweeping our dirt under the rug” and pretending that these problems don’t exist.
    The mark of a mature society is one that is able to discuss anything and find acceptable solutions to all parties. & I think that after 50 yrs of independence we should be able to do so..
    with regards to the social contract,
    “There is no such thing as a racial “right” to be given special treatment. And that is not me being argumentative, it’s the Constitution. You won’t find “Malay rights” in the supreme law of our land, instead, you will find terms such as “special position” of Malays. The difference is more than semantics. A right implies something inalienable. A privilege on the other hand is a benefit, presumably given to those who need it.” – Social Contract (Malaysia).
    The privileges were originally meant as a helping hand for the malay people and meant to be eliminated when it’s target was achieved. However certain politicians saw fit to replace the term “privileges” with “rights”, & hence the term “ketuanan Melayu” was born. a notion not very different to the Nazi philosophy of a master race.
    Now it is obvious that the racial policies have failed but greedy politicians still harp on these issues to garner more support from their communities.
    An obsolete agreement which was meant to be reviewed after 15 years was redefined despite it’s obvious shortcomings.
    Has the “social contract” really benefited The Malay People?
    Instead it has only benefited a few select malays.
    For all this talk about the “suffering” malay people in Singapore, not a single one of them would give up their Singaporean Citizenship and come back to Malaysia,& the fact is there are many succesful malays in singapore in relation to their population, ie minority. If a similar meritocratic system were to be applied here, I am sure there would be many deserving succesful Malays here, simply because they are the majority.
    The non- malay people will not be able to displace the malay people…we want only to be treated fairly, we believe that our malay brothers and sisters have the ability to stand on their own strengths and compete without a helping hand…That help,assistance and oppurtunity should be given to all deserving Malaysians irrespective of race or religion.

    ASSALAMUALAIKUM AYAHANDA TUN DAN BONDA SITI HASMAH
    Anakanda tumpang lalu.
    To masceyus and others who said that Tun Dr.Mahatir was a big
    liar just because of the rumours that he’s joining UMNO again.
    I quote from what Al marhum Tunku Abdul Rahman said in his book “VIEWPOINTS” on chapter Eleven -topic-Political Partnerships.
    QUOTE: “I PROMISED NOT TO DELVE INTO POLITICS BUT THE THEME I
    HAVE IN MIND IS VERY INVOLVED AND SERIOUS ENOUGH FOR
    ME TO BREAK MY PROMISE”
    The burden that Tun has to shoulder is so great and so serious
    concerning a NATION AND IT’S PEOPLE and not just a small country
    and even the HARDCORE POLITICIANS could not bear to shoulder it
    what more of we the moderate people.
    We can only talk,critize and some even gone to the extent of INSULTING the GREAT STATESMAN.
    So in future DO BECAREFUL OF WHAT YOU PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT
    WASSALAM

    Salam Tun,
    Setiap kali kenyataan berbaur perkauman dikeluarkan akan disusuli dengan kontrak sosial. Tetapi adakah semua orang faham tentang kontrak sosial???
    Saya berpendapat sistem pendidikan negara haruslah dibaikpulih dengan segera. Satu sistem persekolahan haruslah diperkenalkan. Hanya sekolah kebangsaan perlu diwujudkan tetapi kelas bahasa ketiga turut ditawarkan. Melalui cara ini tiga bangsa yang berbeza dapat bercampur gaul dan bersahabat tanpa mengira batasan warna kulit, keturunan dan agama. Bahasa Cina dan Tamil atau Arab diperkenalkan sebagai bahasa ketiga. Satu bahasa iaitu bahasa kebangsaan digunakan sebagai bahasa penghantar. Bahasa Inggeris turut diperkasakan dari awal. Guru bahasa yang diambil kerajaan mesti betul-betul terlatih dan fasih dalam sesuatu bahasa. Hanya melalui pendidikan generasi akan datang boleh berinteraksi sesama rakyat Malaysia tanpa prasangka.

  99. totally spies Sep 12,2008 11:42 AM

    Bila baca komen2 yg byk2 ni ,ada yg sebenarnya tak faham mengapa ada ‘social contract’ dan kenapa tak BOLEH ada ‘racial tension’
    .maka yg berkenaan patutlah study balik dan faham betul rukun negara MALAYSIA ni.
    Rukun Negara
    Rukun Negara adalah ideologi kebangsaan Malaysia. Ia telah dibentuk pada 31
    Ogos 1970 iaitu setahun selepas berlakunya tragedi 13 Mei 1969 yang
    menghancurkan perpaduan dan ketenteraman negara.
    Ikrar
    Maka kami rakyat Malaysia berikrar akan menumpukan seluruh tenaga dan
    usaha kami untuk mencapai cita-cita tersebut berdasarkan atas prinsip-prinsip
    yang berikut
    Prinsip Rukun Negara
    • Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan
    • Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara
    • Keluhuran Perlembagaan
    • Kedaulatan Undang-undang
    • Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan
    PENJELASAN PRINSIP RUKUN NEGARA:
    Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan
    Bangsa dan Negara ini telah diwujudkan atas kepercayaan yang kukuh kepada
    Tuhan. Melalui kepercayaan beragama inilah akan menjadikan bangsa dan
    negara ini sebagai satu bangsa dan negara yang berdaulat.
    Perlembagaan Persekutuan memperuntukkan bahawa Islam ialah agama rasmi
    Persekutuan, tetapi agama dan kepercayaan-kepercayaan lain boleh diamalkan
    dengan aman dan tenteram di mana-mana bahagian di dalam Persekutuan dan
    tindakan membeza-bezakan terhadap seseorang warganegara atas alasan
    agama adalah dilarang sama sekali.
    Jawatankuasa penggubal Rukun Negara menyedari akan pentingnya agama dan
    kepercayaan kepada Tuhan dalam kehidupan manusia. Ketiadaan agama boleh
    meruntuhkan keperibadian seseorang dan juga sesuatu bangsa dan negara.
    Menyedari betapa pentingnya keteguhan pegangan anggota masyarakat
    terhadap ajaran agama masing-masing, prinsip ini telah dipilih sebagai prinsip
    pertama dalam Rukun Negara.
    Kesetiaan Kepada Raja dan Negara
    Malaysia mengamalkan Sistem Demokrasi Berparlimen dan Raja
    Berpelembagaan dengan Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong sebagai
    Ketua Negara. Selaras dengan kedudukan Yang di-Pertuan Agong sebagai Raja
    mengikut Perlembagaan, sistem beraja juga diamalkan di setiap negeri, dan
    Yang Di-Pertua Negeri bagi negeri-negeri yang tidak beraja. Seri Paduka
    Baginda, Raja-Raja dan Yang Di-Pertua Negeri adalah merupakan lambang
    perpaduan rakyat.
    Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara bermaksud, bahawa setiap warganegara
    hendaklah menumpukan sepenuh taat setia, jujur dan ikhlas kepada Seri Paduka
    Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Di peringkat negeri pula, rakyat dikehendaki
    menumpukan taat setia kepada raja yang memerintah negeri tempat mereka
    bermastautin tanpa mengurangkan taat setia kepada Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
    Keluhuran Perlembagaan
    Prinsip ini menekan perlunya rakyat menerima, mematuhi dan
    mempertahankankeluhuran atau kemuliaan Perlembagaan Negara.
    Perlembagaan Negara adalah sumber perundangan yang tertinggi. Fungsinya
    untuk memberi perlindungan kepada setiap rakyat negara ini akan hak dan
    keistimewaan mereka sebagai warganegara. Setiap warga negara Malaysia
    dikehendaki menghormati, menghargai, serta memahami maksud dan
    kandungan serta latar belakang sejarah pembentukan Perlembagaan Negara.
    Perlembagaan Negara telah digubal berasaskan kesepakatan semua kaum dan
    semu pihak di negara ini. Dengan demikian ia merupakan satu kontrak sosial
    rakyat yang tidak boleh dipersoalkan dan diganggu gugat oleh mana-mana
    individu atau mana-mana pihak. Perlembagaan Malaysia menentukan pola politik
    dan kedudukan sosio-ekonomi rakyat di negara ini. Ia adalah sumber rujukan
    bagi segala hal yang berkaitan denga sistem pemerintahan, perundangan,
    kedudukan dan hak sosio-ekonomi rakyat.
    Kedaulatan Undang-Undang
    Keadilan diasaskan atas kedaulatan undang-undang di mana setiap rakyat sama
    tarafnya di sisi undang-undang negara. Kebebasan asasi terjamin bagi semua
    warganegara Malaysia. Undang-undang negara berasaskan kepada
    Perlembagaan. Oleh itu kedaulatannya perlu diterima dan dipertahankan. Tanpa
    undang-undang, hidup bermasyarakat dan bernegara tidak aman dan stabil.
    Oleh itu undang-undang negara dijamin pula oleh institusi kehakiman yang
    bebas dan berwibawa.
    Setiap negara memerlukan undang-undang untuk mengawal dan mewujudkan
    satu masyarakat yang aman, stabil dan makmur. Kewujudan undang-undang
    akan menjamin kehidupan anggota masyarakat dapa bergerak dengan licin dan
    teratur tanpa sebarang kekacauan, di mana semua anggota masyarakat akan
    merasas selamat. Hak-hak semua rakyat boleh diamalkan dengan bebas
    asalkan tidak melanggar undang-undang serta perkara-perkara sebagaimana
    yang dijamin oleh Perlembagaan Negara. Hak-hak dari kebebasan yang dijamin
    oleh Perlembagaan itu tidaklah termasuk hak menggulingkan kerajaan sama ada
    dengan kekerasan atau dengan cara-cara yang tidak menurut Perlembagaan.
    Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan
    Prinsip ke lima ini menekankan perkembangan personaliti dan tingkah laku
    seseorang rakyat. Tujuannya ialah untuk membentuk warga negara yang
    bersopan santun dan bersusila selaras dengan kempen Budi Bahasa dan Nilai
    Murni yang dijalankan sekarang. Sifat individu yang bersopan santun dan
    bersusila adalah paling bermakna dan amat penting dalam konteks perhubungan
    antara satu sama lain dalam masyarakat pelbagai kaum di negara ini.
    Sikap bersopan santun dan bersusila patut diamalkan bagi membentuk
    seseorang individu dan masyarakat yang berdisiplin serta bermoral tinggi yang
    akan membantu mewujudkan sebuah masyarakat yang harmoni. Tatasusila ini
    membenci dan mengutuk tingkah laku atau perbuatan yang angkuh atau
    menyinggung perasaan seseorang atau sesuatu golongan. Tingkah laku sopan
    juga mengandungi suatu darjah kesusilaan yang tinggi dalam kedua-dua
    kehidupan persendirian dan kehidupan bernegara. Prinsip ini menjadi panduan
    supaya perilaku masyarakat sentiasa terpelihara dan berkembang sesuai
    dengan keperibadian bangsa dan nilai-nilai murni.
    OK, SO GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE…!

    Dear Tun,
    Since you mentioned Tengku Abdul Rahman, I would like to inform you and others that I have heard many negatvie comments about him since the 1960’s amongst the Malay communities in Geylang Serai, Singapore. However many Singaporean Chinese praise him. Wonder Why?
    Thanks, Selamat Menyambut Idilfitri!
    Wassalam.

  101. thebigdipper Sep 12,2008 11:39 AM

    Aslmkm YABhg. Tun,
    Begitu ramai sekali yang post comment kepada isu yang dibawa Tun kali ini. Semuanya menyokong, adalah seorang dua yang tidak berani bersetuju, mungkin kerana mereka kurang faham, ataupun memang menjalankan tugas untuk membantah dan menidakkan apa sahaja yang Tun suarakan melalui blog Tun.
    Di Negeri Sembilan, orang-orang Cina telah menolak parti Gerakan dan MCA kerana termakan hasutan Lim Kit Siang bahawa mengundi Gerakan atau MCA samalah seperti mengundi UMNO. Sebab itu, di Parlimen Seremban BN kalah peringkat Parlimen dan juga semua Dewan Undangan Negeri. Tidakkah ini bukti bahawa orang-orang Cina, walaupun tinggal di bandar adalah racist.
    Orang-orang India pula mengundi mengikut sentimen yang di bawa oleh HINDRAF. Tidakkah ini juga bukti bahawa orang-orang India juga racist.
    Jadi siapa yang hendak kepada perpaduan? Orang-orang Melayu sekarang sedar cara Pak Lah, iaitu meminta maaf dan mengalah tidak diambil “pot” (bak kata orang Negeri Sembilan) oleh bangsa-bangsa asing. Jadi tidakkah wajar Melayu juga menjadi racist.

  102. tok-kecik Sep 12,2008 11:30 AM

    Salam untuk Tun Dr Mahathir yang saya segani.
    I guess it’s time to change and action to be taken.
    The leader that UMNO have right now seems to be so weak and that’s why all those jokers out there taking Ahmad Badawi’s kindness as his weakness.Kita orang melayu feels that bangsa dan ugama kita diperlekehkan oleh kaum2 yang asal nya mendatang.Namun setelah diberikan tempat tinggal untuk hidup aman dan damai, tak sekali pun mereka pertimbangkan kebaikan kita sebagai penduduk asli di tanah melayu.Cuba kita fikirkan,siapa yg besusah payah untuk mendapatkan kemerdekaan dari orang putih.Adakah bangsa2 lain memperjuangkan tanah barakah ini selain dari orang2 yang dipanggil melayu?
    Waktu itu dimana Gopal,Ah Seng,Johnson dan sebagai nya.Yang ada Mohd ini,Abdul ini,Karim,Osman dan sebagai nya.Mengapa sekarang baru mereka nak menuntut hak sama rata……..apakah mereka dah lupa diri mereka sendiri dari mana datang datuk nenek mereka?Seharus nya mereka mencermin diri mereka sendiri sebelum menuntut hak dari orang yang memiliki tanah melayu ini.Tanah melayu adalah warisan dari keturunan datuk nenek kita dan wajib bagi kita mempertahankan nya maka betul lah nama tanah itu Malaysia.Here clearly mention Malay in Asia…..am I right?
    So there is no question of hak sama rata disini.
    The only generation that will be legally own Malaysia or Tanah Melayu are purely Malays and their descendants.
    Hidup Malaysia……..Hidup Melayu……Hidup Tun Dr Mahathir Mohd.
    Bersama2 kita mempertahankan tanah datuk nenek kita.

    “Dato Seri Abdullah has tried to placate everyone. He has given one billion Ringgit here, one billion Ringgit there; … But no one believes him because the promises and fund allocations have not materialised. The fact is that nobody believes him or trusts him.”
    I believe the word is everyone knows he cant do anything as he has no control on anything. In fact we doubt he really comprehends the criticalness of the situation.

  104. key Sep 12,2008 10:51 AM

    Selamat pagi Tun ,isteri dan semua yang membacanya.Benarkah Tun telah menyertai umno semula atau ini hanya gimik sahaja.Kalau benar ,alhamdullilah.Mudah2an niat Tun yang baik itu akan diberkati ALLAH.Bagaimanakah sambutan orang2 umno agaknya,terutama tali barut badawi tu.Semoga penyertaan Tun akan memudahkan dalam menangani masalah yang dihadapi oleh arena politik MALAYSIA sekarang ini.
    Apa2 pun Tun kena lebih berhati2 dengan orang sekeliling didalam umno,kebanyakkan macam TALAM DUA MUKA.Mungkin Tun sudah dapat mengenali orang2 ini.Serta anwar yang sentiasa menunggu masa dan akan membuat pelbagai helah untuk berkuasa.Jangan sampai pisang berbuah dua kali TUN’.Apa yang dilakukan oleh Tunku itu dah lama berlalu,apa yang kita dapat lakukan sekarang jangan perkara yang sama berulang kembali.Terutama zaman sekarang yang lebih bersifat materialistik dan gila dengan kuasa yang belum pasti dapat memikul tanggungjawap.Tetapi menjahanamkan negara saja.Apa yang akan Tun lakukan andai diberi kuasa ?Kalau diberi kuasa ,saya akan hantar semua penentang kenegara masing2 dan akan menghapuskan subsidi2 yang buat orang2 melayu malas dan mengada2..para pendatang tanpa izin juga di kenakan hukuman yang berat seperti sebatan dan penjara mengikut lamanya mereka berada disini.Jika ada melakukan jenayah/ ada kes ditambah hukumannya seperti rompak /bunuh dimana boleh dikenakan hukuman mati.Ini dpt mengurangkan jenayah,bagi rakyat tempatan pula hukuman tetap sama.Setiap pelajar dikenakan yuran dan wang itu boleh membaiki kekurangaan yang ada disetiap sekolah terutama di kampung2.Para pegawai kerajaan yang amalkan rasuah dihukum dengan adil tanpa mengira pangkat kalau boleh tendang saja,tak boleh simpan.Macam orang hisap dadah,mereka ini dah liat nak kikis amalan itu.Setiap pesalah dari mereka mesti disiarkan dimediamasa agar beri pengajaran pada yang lain.Tak perlu bagi subsudi pada pegawai 2 kerajaan amnya,tetapi memberi mereka/anak2 mereka peluang menlanjutkan pelajaran didalam atau luar.Bagi sistem pentadbiran mesti di selaraskan.Terutama sistem keselamatan negara spt polis,tentera dan sebagainya.Selalu disini banyak berlaku unsur2 rasuah atau p[unca penagih dadah/pendatang tanpa izin juga mat2 rempit in i.Kerana kebanyakkan dari mereka adalah dalangnya.Kita ambil orang luar yang benar2 layak bagi menangani kekurangan pekerja2 didalam semua sistem tanpa perlu beri kerakyatan tetapi permit kerja dengan tempat tinggal disediakan tak perlu banglo tetapi selesa serta pengangkutan ulangalik yang tersedia dengan pemantauan yang tegas.Serta pegawai2 kerajaan yang dihantar bagi memantau diberi gaji tinggi ,tempat tinggal serta kemudahan yang mereka tak nperlu menerima sogokan dari luar.Dunia hiburan mestilah mempun yai garisan tertentu serta ada pantauan dari sudut agama atau yang tidak menjejaskan moral pemuda/pemudi sekarang darisegi akhlak terutamanya,barulah lahir muda/mudi yang berjaya juga berakhlak baik.Kurangkan cuti2,kerana kita sudah terlambat dari matlamat asal.OHHHH……………… MASIH BANYAK LAGI.TUN TENTU LEBIH TAHU.semoga Tun tak jelak mermbacanya. sekian wassalam…………………………….

  105. Fairness Sep 12,2008 10:27 AM

    Well said Salleh. You can have my blood anytime because you will not see the colour.
    I was having lunch yesterday with my Gen Y Chinese colleaques when I threw them the question, “If the Malays agree to end this Bumiputra prefential thing, will they agree to end the vernacular schooling system. The answer was a resounding “YES, so long as Mandarin is taught as a subject”
    Enough of looking back, lets move forward by setting datelines. No point regressing into the what’s in the social contract, constitution rights and good old P Ramlee days.
    We are we squabbling if not for our children. Do you know what these Gen Ys want in life. Google and learn. They breathe and live in the cyber world with mobile phines, facebook, internet, ICT and digital age. They don’t give a shit over what most of us are doing.
    So what sort of Structure, Systems and Culture are we promoting Malaysia among our children? Governance through “Institutionalised race disrimination”? Ask this question objectively and constructively?. You reap what you sow. What can you expect?. Do we provide a healthy and vibrant platform for them to development and thrive?. Look around and see the oxymorons. We want to be treated as Malaysians yet do the opposite. What can you expect?. More love for the nation or hatred.
    Instead of blaming and findings excuses, why can’t we work towards win-win solutions for a united and strong Malaysia, starting with correctly our fundamental idealogies and beliefs. Let me start the ball rolling here in proposing some strategic initiatives towards the creation of a United Malaysian Race. Others can join in to add on, but strictly no single race.
    1. Review the current “Bumiputra based” Affirmative Action and replace it with that which addresses economic deprivation and poverty.
    2. Review and replace vernacular schooling with national schooling through intergation.
    3. Free education up to university. strive for Zero illiteracy, making it legally mandatory for children to recieve education up to Form 5.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    It can be a start, it we are willing to try. Collaboration is far more better than compromise. The way to it is to first “SEE and FEEL” in our everyday minds and hearts, as Malaysians.
    I hope YAB Tun will take up this challenge of exploring worthwhile ideas that have not been given a chance. Throw them to the various races and see how they respond. Then you will know how many are true racist under the skin.
    One Malaysian is far greater than each race acting alone. Think over it.

  106. Awakening Sep 12,2008 10:21 AM

    A’Kum Tun,
    Since 1998, I was one of your vocal critics and not until recently I realized that you are the right man to lead the Malaysian multi-racial society into peace, harmony and prosperity. So I hope you’ll be back to take over the UMNO top post and the PM of Malaysia as well to put the current chaotic situation in order. If not as a PM you can also contribute by becoming our country’s senior advisor. Tun,please act fast before it’s too late. The current Flip-Flop and the so called Hip-Hop must be stopped at once since they only create uncertainty and instability

  107. uncle Sep 12,2008 10:20 AM

    Assalamualikum Tun, warga UMNO dan warga Melayu/Bumiputra
    Cadangan bagi memperkukuhkan UMNO.
    1. Sesiapa yg memegang jawatan dlm UMNO pada peringkat Bahagian atau Cawangan tidak dijanjikan sebarang projek atau dana.
    LATARBELAKANG:
    i)Keadaan sekarang, ramai yg berebut pelbagai jawatan didalam UMNO kerana bukan bertujuan berkhidmat untuk bangsa tetapi lebih kepada kepentingan sendiri.
    ii)Bayangkan yang sudah BERADA masih tamak dan rakus untuk menambah kekayaan demi diri sendiri, keluarga atau sahabat handai.
    iii)Kerana mereka tahu jika berjawatan di dalam UMNO sudah tentu ada habuan.
    iv)Maka banyaklah dana atau projek disalurkan melalui ketua-ketua ini dan malangnya ketua-ketua ini akan sapu sebahagian besar untuk diri mereka yang betulbetul sampai ke rakyat sasar hanyalah hampas.
    KESAN:
    i)Barulah sesiapa yang bertanding betul-betul pejuang rakyat yang TULIN.
    ii)Kalau tidak mereka ini akan menggunakan segala kaedah seperti POLITIK WANG untuk mendapatkan jawatan kerana habuan WANG juga menanti mereka.
    HAIRAN:
    i)Mungkinkah kerana perkara tersebut di atas yang membuatkan mereka beriya-iya sangat merebut jawatan.
    ii)Padahal jawatan dalam UMNO tiada ganjaran atau upah seperti kita bekerja dengan kerajaan atau swasta.
    iii)Tapi mereka nak juga jawatan itu.
    2. Hapuskan Kuota pemilihan di semua peringkat.
    LATARBELAKANG: Untuk bertanding, calon mestilah mendapat percalonan yang mencukupi untuk jawatan tertentu.
    KESAN:
    i)Calon akan cuba jalan singkat untuk mendapatkan kouta tersebut dengan pelbagai cara.
    ii)Jalan singkat yang menjadi amalan adalah POLITIK WANG.
    iii)Ahli-ahli akan ada banyak pilihan mereka.
    iv)Jika dikatakan calon yang ‘tidak berpengaruh’ atau ‘tiada nama’ yang tiba-tiba mencalonkan diri akan membuang masa pemilihan adalah tidak tepat.
    v)Orang yang menawar diri (yang disebut tadi) untuk bertanding bukanlah calang-calang orang seperti yang dicalonkan.
    vi)Mereka ini berani dalam erti kata memikul tanggungjawab nanti. viii)Jadi jangan memperlekehkan mereka.
    ix)Bukalah peluang begini.
    x)Jika tidak mereka yang ‘Popular’ sahaja yang akan mendapat kouta.
    HAIRAN:
    i) Mengapa sistem kouta ini masih dilaksanakan pada masa kini.
    ii) Ianya mungkin sesuai pada masa lampau kerana suasana politik masa tersebut tetapi suasana politik semasa tidak memerlukan sistem ini lagi.
    3. Setiap calon yang bertanding perlulah mengemukakan MANIFESTO atau PERANCANGAN PEMBAHARUAN secara bertulis (supaya boleh dirujuk kembali jika mereka berjawatan kelak)mereka samada di peringkat Bahagian atau Cawangan bagi meningkatkan lagi sosio-ekonomi masyarakat setempat.
    LATARBELAKANG:
    i) Kebanyakkan calon yang bertanding jawatan hanya menyerang secara peribadi, kesalahan yang dilakukan oleh penyandang jawatan.
    KESAN:
    i)Maka berlakunya ceramah-ceramah politik yang berunsur fitnah, caci-mencaci, maki-hamun, memburuk-buruk dan yang lebih mudarat lagi, pendengar atau penyokong bersama-sama mengiyakan apa yang dikatakan oleh penceramah.
    ii)Ini membawa kepada bersubahat.
    iii)Rakyat akan tahu apakah pembaharuan yang akan dibuat oleh calon tersebut.
    iv) Calon dari masyarakat setempat lebih maklum akan pembaharuan yang perlu bagi tempatnya berbanding orang dari tempat lain.
    HAIRAN:
    i) Mengapa apabila penceramah ‘politik’ menceritakan keburukan orang lain, ramai yang suka, mengiyakan, bertepuk-tepuk tangan dan menyebut kalimah suci.
    ii) Mengapa masyarakat setempat menerima calon yang bukan dari masyarakat tempatan dan tidak bermukim di tempat mereka.
    4. Wujudkan Penilaian Prestasi Wakil Rakyat dan Jawatankuasa Bahagian dan Cawangan
    LATARBELAKANG:
    i) Pucuk pemimpin nyatakan ada sistem penilaian prestasi keatas wakil rakyat sahaja.
    ii) Entah apa yang dinilai, tidak diketahui umum(akar umbi)
    iii) Tidak dinyatakan tempoh penilaian tersebut dan tidak dinyatakan berapakah peratusan yang diperolehi oleh mereka yang dinilai tersebut di akhir suatu penilaian tersebut
    KESAN:
    i)Perlu nayatakan apakah yang dinilai dan bagi tempoh tertentu
    ii) Yang dinilai perlu tahu apakah tahap prestasi mereka supaya mereka tidak rasa ‘syok sendiri’
    iii) Yang dinilai akan tahu arah tuju mereka bagi tempoh tertentu penilaian tersebut
    iv) Kemukakan Indek Prestasi supaya Yang Dinilai tahu tahap mereka dan berusaha meningkatkan prestasi mereka sebelum tamat tempoh penilaian
    HAIRAN:
    i) Di dalam sektor kakitangan awam, ada Penilaian Prestasi Tahunan
    ii) Di dalam sektor swasta, ada target(kuantiti jualan/ perkhidmatan/ nilai jualan)
    iii) Di dalam sektor politik, siapa yang menilai siapa
    iv) Bukankah rakyat yang menilai, adakah penilaian tersebut semasa pilihanraya sahaja, tak adakah slot lain di antara tempoh sebelum pilihanraya
    5. Turun Padang selalu, berjadual dan bertempat yang sesuai
    LATARBELAKANG:
    i) Selalunya bila musim pilihanraya maka semua calon akan BERKERUMUN pergi ke tempat awam seperti pasar basah (yang busuk bau ikan, becak, kotor, percikan ayam yang dipotong dll), sebuah rumah orang tua, sebuah rumah orang paling daif, sekali naik kenderaan awam bersembang dengan seorang dua penumpang, dan tempat-tempat lain yang mereka selepas itu tak akan berkesempatan lagi selepas itu
    ii) Bergaya dengan kenderaan mewah, black suit, pengawal peribadi yang gagah dan tegas yang akan menyusahkan rakyat JELATA menghampiri meraka ini
    KESAN:
    i) Rakyat JELATA boleh sampaikan MASALAH kepada wakil rakyat mereka yang mereka pilih dulu yang akan berkhidmat kepada masyarakat kerana jawatan pun WAKIL RAKYAT.
    ii) Saluran yang paling berkesan jika saluran melalui agensi kerajaan tidak berkesan
    iii) Letakkan papan kenyataan yang senang dilihat oleh masyarakat setempat akan waktu, tarikh dan tempat yang sesuai supaya rakyat boleh bersua dengan WAKIL mereka.
    iV) Jangan kerap hanya wakil politik, wakil peribadi kepada wakil rakyat kerana kekadang maklumat yang hendak disampaikan telah dahulu ditapis sebelum sampai, demi menjaga perasaan pihak tertentu
    v) Kalau maklumat A hendak disampaikan maka sampaikan A dan bukannya a kepada wakil rakyat.
    HAIRAN:
    i) ‘Ada’ wakil-wakil rakyat yang tiada tempat rasmi(balai wakil rakyat) atau tidak rasmi(rumah sendiri agaknya) jadi macam namalah suara rakyat jelata ini hendak sampaikan permasalahan mereka, sebab itulah agaknya ada demonstrasi jalanan dan protes, sehingga tersiar dalam berita TV, sehingga dijemput pemberita popular untuk menyiarkan permasalahan mereka di TV
    ii) Adakah wakil rakyat ini tidak dimaklumkan, sengaja tidak dimaklumkan kerana susah hendak jumpa atau lambat bertindak dan bermacam-macam lagi atau.
    iii) Sibuk sangatkan yang dikatakan pemimpin rakyat ini, kalau tidak dijadualkan tugasan memang kita tidak akan ada masa untuk sesuatu perkara yang bukan keutamaan kita tetapi menjadi keutamaan kepada pihak lain.
    Tun,
    Sebenarnya sebagai rakyat biasa dan bukan pun akar umbi UMNO tetapi warga Melayu dan Rakyat Jelata ini memandang persekitaran semasa berdasarkan media-media yang ada, maka inilah hasil pengamatan dan pemerhatian yang saya perolehi. Saya tidak bergiat dalam arus politik negara. Jadi pengetahuan saya amatlah rendah terhadap aktiviti politik berbanding jika saya bergeluman dengan politik. Maka izinkan saya menggunakan saluran ini untuk meluahkan pandangan cetek saya ini disini.
    Demi Melayu
    Demi UMNO
    Demi Islam
    Demi Nusantara
    UNCLE
    Nota: Mohon maaf jika tersinggung mana-mana pihak. Saya tidak menunding jari kepada mana-mana individu di dalam UMNO kerana saya tahu ada 4 lagi jari saya akan menunding ke arah saya. Jika perkara yang baik jadikan amalan, jika perkara mudarat jadikan iktibar.
    Selamat berjimat ketika berpuasa dan beraya.

    To bloggers,
    Some said that Tun, Ahmad Ismail, and many more Malays are pendatang to Tanah Melayu. And this people also said that Chinese, Indians (brought by British) etc. are also kaum pendatang. What is the difference? Well, the main difference between these “two pendatang”, is one has assimilate with local society but NOT THE OTHER. Pls think.

  109. Rushking Sep 12,2008 9:36 AM

    For Dr Mahattir to work so hard on his thoughts about Malaysia he must be truly passionate about his beloved country. Salutes to the Tun.

  110. cakkuncak Sep 12,2008 9:33 AM

    YAB Tun,
    Tun, I read your comments with anger and frustration to the point that I felt I have this heavy burden that cannot be removed from inside my chest!
    Dear Tun, most of us have known that Dato Seri Abdullah cannot handle a lot of things since he cancelled the bridge to Singapore. Every right thinking man knew that back then!! and yet he remained in office! in UMNO! ….
    The fact is, it is not due to the right thinking man who did not make their voices heard BUT UMNO leaders who knew BUT choose to not do anything about it…!!
    WE THE MASSES KNOW WE DO NOT WHAT DATO SERI ABDULLAH. – WHAT IS THE PROOF ?? WELL, HE LOST 5 STATES IN THE LAST GENERAL ELECTION ! THE WORSE IN THE HISTORY OF THE BN…
    Any right thinking man in UMNO would have seen it coming if they are honest to themselves and sincerely think about the country’s future.
    Do they really worry about the country’s future my Dear Tun? Do they really worry about how my children will have to live if they let this person SCREW UP everything???
    Then what happen?…Just when you thought there is hope in reasonable voices…Dato Seri Abdullah still remained and came up with all ridiculous plans and excuses just to stay in power. It was clear he was only thinking for his own sake. AGAIN, DID ANY RIGHT THINKING MAN IN UMNO DID OR SAY ANYTHING? OF THE HUNDREDS OF THEM ONLY YOU AND MUKHRIZ SPOKE CLEARLY…THE REST??
    My Dear Tun, what is happening in the country now is a brewing from the DESPAIR the majority felt due to the above.
    Out intellectuals are the same – they dont focus on the issue. It is leadership….it is not about social contracts, NEP or Judiciary or what not. These so-called intellectuals or NGOs or whoever they call themselves are just people who can talk and seemed to know how to talk in an eloquent way. THE FACT IS, they are just like politicians abovementioned – they lack guts and not for a moment do they really care about what will happen for the country. They debate for the sake of debate simply because they cannot say the simple truth that MALAYSIA have a leadership crisis and we therefore need to replace DATO SER ABDULLAH AHMAD BADAWI A.S.A.P!!
    Leadership is a business of giving HOPE…and in this aspect DATO SERI ABDULLAH have failed and failed miserably. The fact that the right thinking leaders in UMNO CHOOSE NOT TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT have made his failures irreversible now…
    The people from all races love this country and now all this unnecessary bickering and debate is due to the DESPAIR that people feel. The people feel OUR LEADERS have failed US in recognizing the weakness in Dato Seri Abdullah. Dato Seri Abdullah can choose to be stubborn but IT IS THEY WHO ALLOWED HIM to be stubborn is at fault.
    I am not familiar with the workings of politics at all. I have never run for any positions…but ENOUGH IS ENOUGH MY DEAR TUN…
    PLEASE. I BEG YOU WITH ALL MY HEART – PLEASE DO SOMETHING TUN. YES, YOU HAVE DONE A LOT…BUT NOW IN ALL HUMBLENESS, I SINCERELY THINK IT IS TIME TO ROCK THE BOAT TUN!..YOU ARE STILL BENG NICE. THIS SHOULD STOP ALREADY.
    You need to garner as many people who want change and MAKE IT HAPPEN!.
    WHY YOU DEAR TUN? …well my question to you is IF NOT YOU, WHO ELSE? ME? DATO SERI NAJIB?? TENGKU RAZALEIGH HAMZAH??
    NOW IS THE TIME TO TELL DATO SERI ABDULLAH STRAIGHT TO HIS FACE – PLS STEP DOWN OR WE WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY OUT!!
    Please Tun, I beg you again. I am just sick and frustrated in the spectacle shown by our leaders as if we cannot do anything to ask Dato Seri Abdullah.
    How can HE be MORE important than the nation!! How is this possible?????????????? How is it that this is allowed??
    As you mentioned we cannot allow this slide to continue further…but what can a person like me DO? other than hope and despair and vote. I will vote BN out if I have too IF that is the ONLY WAY TO RID THIS NATION OF A LEADER LIKE DS ABDULLAH.
    I PRAY ALLAH WILL GIVE US ALL THE STRENGTH.

    Salam kepada YAB Tun dan rakan2 bloggers,
    PADA PENDAPAT SAYA, PENYELESAIAN MASALAH DATUK AHMAD DGN PEMIMPIN2 PARTI KAUM CINA BN BUKAN WIN-WIN SITUATION.
    DOLLAH DAN MT (YANG TIDAK BERANI MENYATAKAN YANG BENAR) RASA IANYA WIN-WIN DAN BERJAYA MENYEJUKKAN PIHAK PARTI CINA DAN ORANG CINA.
    PEMIMPIN DAN ORANG CINA RASA SATU WIN WALAUPUN INI BUKAN SATU MASALAH YANG BESAR KEPADA MEREKA SEPERTI JIKA EKONOMI TIDAK BERGERAK
    PEMIMPIN DAN ORANG MELAYU KECEWA KERANA BANGSANYA BERKALI-KALI DIHINA, DENGAN RESTU ORANGNYA SENDIRI DI ATAS. CIUM KERIS SALAH, BERCAKAP PASAL MELAYU TUAN, SALAH…TANYALAH SECARA RAWAK PENDAPAT ORANG MELAYU DAN JAWAPAN MEREKA ADALAH INI MASALAH ORANG CINA DENGAN AHMAD BUKAN DENGAN UMNO, KECUALILAH JIKA DIPUTUSKAN DALAM PERSIDANGAN UMNO….TETAPI KENAPA UMNO BERIA2 SANGAT? WALHAL BAGI ORANG ITU THIS IS CELAH GIGI PUNYA HAL, KECIK PUNYA HAL.
    WELL, DOLLAH PUN ADA PERSONAL AXE TO GRIND…APABILA 13 CAWANGAN BACKING AHMAD, DOLLAH KENA HAJAR ITU 13 CAWANGAN. I REST MY CASE…EH, EH, BUKA BALIK….
    WHAT IF ITS TRUE THAT THE 51 OR 54 IDIOTS SENT TO TAIWAN WERE ACTUALLY GRAND DESIGN TO SEPARATE FROM ANWAR? IF IT’S TRUE, THEN IT WAS A STUPID, WASTAGE EFFORTS COS YOU CANNOT CLOSE THEIR MINDS AND HEARTS. LOOKING FROM ANOTHER ASPECT, WE’RE SHOWING OUR BACKSIDES TO OTHERS…YOU REALLY THINK THE TAIWANESE R UNAWARE? READ THEIR COMMENTS IN THEIR MEDIAS. WHAT A SHAME.

  113. Freako Azam Sep 12,2008 9:07 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun DR. M,
    Well ill just go straight to the point. Te notion of people spending a lot of time arguing with each other about these issues is due to state of mind that they are in now. In my opinion;
    1. we have a lot of free time not working hard enough to achieve the nation’s target to be a developed country (although some parties wont want it to happen) by the year 2020. Why is this a factor? Well there’s a lot of money dumped to individuals rather than corporations. Hance the government looses in taxes which leads to government projects being cut, and there’s no work. So now, no work means a lot of dissatisfaction, who to blame? The government, what issue to use? Racial related issues (the simplest! its natural talking about other people.. rite?). Its like “kedai Kopi” talk that has been blown out of proportion.
    2. DSAI- 1 person, says it all. why in the 1st place he was freed, i cannot say. But he thinks that he is innocent. What a joker. I would like to stress here that ” DSAI WAS NOT PROVEN INNOCENT BY ANY JUDGE OR COURT! INSTEAD HE WAS PARDONED “. In other words, we dont know weather the charges put to him was true or false. Ok enough of his convictions. Why is he a prominent factor in this particular discussion. Well i dont know weather we realize it or not, after he was freed, theres alot of racial related incidents, ie. HINDRAF, BAR council Public Forum about Islam, etc. Before that, theres no mention of these cases ever being brought to especially to the mass media. DSAI has a reputation of stirring up sentiments against people. When he was in the University he was stirring up unrest among students, the record shows clearlly who he is. I think thats why Tun braught DSAI into his cabinet, so that he can be controlled, can be atleast tamed, or atleast cannot stir up things/sentiments. “Keep your friends close, and your enemy closer”. I think that is the approach that Tun did to tame him. DSAI is not a tiger, or a mighty lion, he is just an annoying dog that barks alot, but hebarks not bcause he is brave, because he is scared! Poor little puppy.. (Mind my sentiments to DSAI, but i just get bloody annoyed by people like him)Talk about wanting to be the next PM too hard. I admire his ditermination, bt for Goe’s sake man! You dont have to rub it in! (Hadap!). If you ask me, ill put him in jail, and throw away the key. He is a snake, cloaked by a snake’s charmer’s skin.
    3. DSAAB- What else i can say about him other than the things that has been mentioned by Tun all this while. I will not go deeper. But im interested to point at the “i have no balls” policy, where by he cant even keep his Barisan together, let alone keep the diverse cultures together. That tells alot about the caracter of the person, plain and simple, he cant decide the best for the nation. Indecisive, we cant trust his decisions without thinking tomorrow he will change everything. His warnings are tame, feeble, people are not convinced at his warnings. If he were to put his foot down and decide, he would have been respected instead of being called feeble or weak. Is this indecisiveness that leads to people taking advantage at the most sensitive issues in Malaysia, racial issues.
    The main thing is the public (i use public not people cz for me, the term people/rakyat is for the Yang Dipertuan Agong to be used for Malaysians) shhould not be so caught up in these things. We have people that always raffels the fethers of the sensetive issues of racial nature. Its the job of the goverment exspecially our Mr. PM, to take stearn action againts these people. To hell what the US or Britain want to say about our human rights! They can say what ever they want. Its not that we never go againts them. Look where are we now! We gained soo much ground in terms of development, and its brought to a screeching halt. And all DSAAB can comment is, the infamous “i dunt know anything bout it??” or “we are developing!” yet the malaysians suffer.
    Im sorry Tun, my comments are not really spot on to the subject.
    The bottom line, it is these main factors that contributed not only for this subject, but many-many more problems.
    tq, for letting me speak out!
    Selamat Berpuasa Tun. I wish you all the best!

    i refer to tengku zedrin’s comment on :
    “assalamualaikum tun,
    saya adalah seorang pelajar form 5 from maktab sultan ismail@sultan ismail college(sic)…it seems like this racist issue now will threat our oppurtunities to further our studies later….my friends and i are afraid that the 13th may incident will be taking place again….if that happen,i am sure that malay students will be vanished from all education institutions…sorry to say that chinese and indians nowadays are brave enough to questioned malay rights,this thing is very obvious since you resigned from the post PM…..please tun,help malay students and please don’t let malay people be the ruffegees at their own soil….jagalah hak-hak kami sementara kami masih kecil tun…please..
    regards,
    tengku zedrin petra”
    what are you so scared of? if you study well… then no one can stop you from going to university. first of all you should be layak to go university- bukan sekadar pass masuk universiti. cubalah layak kan diri dapat ijayah…you know why.. because if the quota helping you to go in uni- remember you going to have a lot of problems when you start working… cos there will be a lot of competition in the real world.. tak kisah ngan cina kah atau india- real world is real world. no point quota helping you tapi yang sebenarnya diri tak layak .

    The current government is not doing anything to reduce the building racial tension. I don’t understand why our PM takes too long of his time to create a resolution to alleviate this issue.

  117. justmy2SEN Sep 12,2008 8:29 AM

    Once in a discussion with DAP-majority supporter post-DAP-wins-in-Penang, where Lim Guan Eng preached for transperancy and meritocracy (in other words, NEP-less state), I suggested in the forum that in order for DAP to prove NEP-less economy will not oppress Malays, conduct an economic study to see economic condition(by race) and after a certain milestone, review it back….(review also involves grant of govt projects (somebody should see if ONLY CHINESE companies are granted projects)…Only this way can convince Malay as data tells truth (NOT JUST EMPTY TALK LIKE WHAT ANWAR ALWAYS DO). However they just dismissed the idea and putar belir saying DAP is not corrupt etc etc. I HAVE PROBLEM WITH THIS BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE THERE’S HIDDEN AGENDA AND JUST LIKE TO BELIEVE EMPTY TALK BY THEIR LEADERS OR MAYBE THEY AFRAID TO SEE THE RESULT WILL SEE MALAYS OPPRESSED…I NEVER KNOW

    &nbsp

    most of Malay population understands that NEP is not here to stay….but it is the TIMING….and partly due to the suddenness of Chinese to be vocal about it (makes me wonder as well)….they only talk about equality without looking at situation surrounding them….it’s typical that most chinese will go great length of making their points without regaRds of others (it’s like they are suci, bersih, good morality and only they are right)…they have this superiority complex which resulted in them looking down at other people…BUT IF THEY WANT SOMETHING FROM YOU, THEY WILL BE THE NICEST PEOPLE ON EARTH

    &nbsp

    Anyway for the benefits of both party, I think why not we talk about the timeframe of NEP Abolishment…Malays all should be made aware that NEP is NOT FOREVER. Give them SENSE OF URGENCY so they become less nice to the non Malays (no more give muka in terms of business etc), be as kiasu as they can to succeed as well as stick together (meaning Malay supporting Malay’s business)-ALL THESE MUST BE DONE BY GOVERNMENT…

    &nbsp

    In the timeframe there should be several milestones (with quantitave target)..For example MILESTONE 1 : X% OF equity, X no of professionals etc etc….A VERY STRINGENT AUDIT + MONITORING ORGANISATION must look at the implementation closely so no more UMNOPUTRAS reaping benefits to themselves. IT’S ABOUT TIME THE BENEFITS ALL GO TO DESERVING MALAYS

    &nbsp

    ZAKAT CAN ALSO PLAY A BIG ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF UMMAH’S ECONOMY (for all muslim. not Malay only but naturaly Malays benefits more as majority muslims are Malays), PLEASE DON;T USE MILLIONS OF MONEY TO BUILD THE BIGGEST BUILDINGS, but maybe can use the money to tap into market which dominated by CHinese (like VEHICLE SPARE PART) and get the poor muslims (under the asnaf) to participate in the BUSINESS…

    &nbsp

    AND WHEN THE TIME IS UP, NO MORE EXCUSES FROM MALAYS TO HOLD ON TO NEP ANYMORE….AND THEN ONLY WE CAN TALK ABOUT MEP (MALAYSIAN ECONOMY POLICY)…FAIR ENOUGH?

  118. therussman Sep 12,2008 8:22 AM

    selamat sejahtera Tun..
    Ada baiknya waktu ini tun menjawab persoalan,adakah Tun ingin memasuki semula UMNo krana saya percaya jawapan dari mulut Tun ditunggu oleh rakyat malaysia..
    moga UMNO akan berada dilandasanya semula.

  119. jdy Sep 12,2008 8:07 AM

    Dear Tun,
    I have so many non-malay friends. I think i’ve being in private sector for so long.Ok..direct to the point..there are 2 issues i would like to highlight here..yes people claim they are Malaysian but they CANNOT speak bahasa melayu fluently OR CANNOT SPEAK AT ALL!!Somemore i have to twist to the other languages in order to communicate with this MONKEYS. WHY AND HOW TO SOLVE?
    Second issue…I’m malay in the private sector not enjoying the govt benefit.

    Andai nya Tun kembali kepangkuan UMNO,ingin sekali saya melihat Tun kembali ke Parlimen.Dengan pengalaman yang begitu meluas sekali yang dapat kita semua lihat,ingin saya cadangkan Tun menjadi mentor kepada kerajaan Malaysia yang off course lah diterajui oleh UMNO.
    Bakat yang ada pada Tun tak semua orang memiliki nya.Pandangan2 Tun sangat jauh dan rancangan2 Tun selama ini amat berkesan sekali demi kemajuan rakyat khusus nya orang2 melayu.Kita semua merasa bangga punyai orang seperti Tun sebagai pemimpin dan penasehat orang2 melayu.Semoga Tun berjaya……..insya Allah kami semua doakan.

  121. kamal ahmad Sep 12,2008 8:06 AM

    Salam Ayahanda Tun. It does appear that the government has given Tun the green light to keep on blogging even with one or both foot in UMNO now. That seems a good sign. In an engine, occasionally we would have to dispense into the tank, various additives to remove hard to reach corrosions and dirt build-ups. I see that taking place now on a larger scale. Plenty additives must be poured in Tun. This engine has been running defectively since October 2003. Galvanizing the supports of the numerous Malay NGOs is perhaps a step in the right direction. Retracing our Merdeka steps, Datuk Seri Panglima Bukit Gantang had represented the Majlis Raja-Raja Melayu along with representatives from the Parti Perikatan in the various Merdeka Missions 1956-1957 the United Kingdom, taking cue from this eminent historical factor, perhaps it is now timely to get the Majlis Raja-Raja Melayu into an even more dynamic role within the political principles of Malays and UMNO in Malaysia. Tun, no doubt about it; you are the best man for the job. However, just for good measure – “At the onset of a fresh responsibility, enough with the back patting already – as it’s just only a few inches from a kick in the butt”. So let’s be onwards with the chores at hand, take it back on the “Merdeka Road” once more Tun. The younger generations must be given a chance to feel this breeze coming around again upon us. All the best and it is indeed our honor and privilege to be by your side on this mission, we are always with you Tun.

  122. OrangLama Sep 12,2008 7:58 AM

    Salam,
    Saya doakan kehadiran semula Tun dalam UMNO akan mengembalikan zaman kegemilangan UMNO.
    TAKRIFAN PERKAUMAN
    Parlimen harus menakrifkan dengan tepat apakah maksud perkauman. Setelah itu perlu diisytiharkan dalam akhbar, garis panduan istilah perkauman. Adakah seseorang yang mempertahankan hak istimewa bumiputer ditakrifkan perkauman? Adakah mengimbas kembali asal usul negara seseorang itu dikatakan perkauman? Adakah subjek sejarah di sekolah perlu dimasnuhkan sekiranya ia juga menmbincangkan isu perkauman?
    Adakah hanya ahli politik sahaja tak kira samada part memerintah atau parti pembangkang sahaja boleh membincangkan isu perkauman? Adakah isu perkauman hanya boleh dibincang di Parlimen bukan di lain2 tempat?
    Kepada semua ahli politik pemerintah dan pembangkang, sedarilah rakyat semakin bingung!
    Ahli politik yang tak layak sepatutnya bersara lah, berikan kepada orang yang betul2 ikhlas berjuang untuk negara. Jangan hidup menyusahkan orang.
    Kita hidup hanya sementara, tiada yang kekal kecuali Allah Ta’ala.

  123. mantoba Sep 12,2008 7:55 AM

    TUN.
    Issue2 berkaitan kontrak sosial dan ketuanan Melayu sedang hangat di perkatakan oleh masyarakat ketika ini. Kenapa setelah 51 tahun merdeka baru lah hangat dipersoalkan.
    Apa kah yang tujuan sebenarnya golongan2 ini cuba ungkit2kan perkara yang sekian lama telah dipersetujui oleh pelopor2 kemerdekaan ketika itu.
    Saya melihat perkara ini jika tak dibendung awal memungkin rakyat Malaysia akan terjebak kekancah rusuhan kaum.
    Orang2 Melayu dah pasti tidak akan bertolak ansur apa jua alasan2 untuk mengahapuskan perjanjian tersebut.Walaupun 1000 tahun akan datang, negara ini tetap negara tanah Melayu.
    Dalang2 sebalik issue ini mesti dicari dan di hukum sewajarnya.
    Walau bagaimana pun saya berharap bila TUN dah diterima masuk kedalam UMNO semula,TUN bolih lah memperbetulkan semuula kaadaan.
    AAB dilihat tak berupaya untuk menangani issue ini.Wallahwaalam.
    Menarik nya AAB terkejuk beruk bila TSMY mengumumkan TUN nak kembali kedalam UMNO. Dan dia bergitu ralat kerana menteri kabinetnya telah engkar persetujuaan.
    Tapi nak tanya persetujuaan cam mana. Siapa yang punya cadanagan.
    Kalau AAB punya cadangan,itu tak bolih pakai. Mana bolih paksa2.
    Walau apa2 pun kita tunggu dan lihat.Semoga TUN berjaya dengan apa yang telah rancangkan.
    Dan saya nak TUN buktikan pada TOK GURU tu yang UMNO tidak akan berpecah sekenbalinya TUN. Malah lebih kukuh.
    sekian terima kasih.

    Salam Tun,
    Panglima General ATM…please STAY OUT of politic!!!
    Where were you when HINDRAF staged a street demo and WEE of negarakuku insulted Islam and the Malays? Why only now your voice was heard clear and LOUD when a Malay from Penang who was just expressing his feeling about chinese being so called “immigrant”???
    Don’t you have other matters to look after rather then to interfere with the nation political issues? Have you done enough on how to release our crews who were kidnapped in Somali??

    PM “Kesal” …
    PM “Berpuas Hati” …
    PM “Terkejut” …
    Apa yg dia tahu..
    bila ada problem je dia kata itu personal view, tapi lepas jadi parah dia menggelabah tapi mesti keluar headline.. “PM akan jumpa ESOK”
    It’s the same everytime.
    Today KJ trying to be a HERO. No need to change the top position??
    BLAH LA KJ..lu takut duit2 lu sume hilang..
    Tun, please settle all this once and for all..
    We are tired with all this nonsence..Anwar sibuk nak jadi PM, Racist statement all over the blogs, Dolah yg tak sedar diri, MT UMNO yg pengecut belaka, KJ yg menyemak at the wrong place at all the wrong time..

    1.Selamat kembali kepangkuan UMNO.
    2Ada segelintir entries disini mempersoalkan kenapa TUN ingin kembali pada UMNO ketika AAB masih meneraju UMNO dan kerajaan.
    3.Tapi pokok nya bila kah AAB ini tidak lagi memimpin UMNO dan PM Malaysia.Dan ingin terus mencetuskan keadaan tengang antara kaum,kelemahan pentadbiran,rasuah flip flop dan pelbagai2 lagi yang akan menjurus kepada kerosakan.
    4. TUN yang bertanggung jawab melantik AAB sebagai pengantinya ketika itu. Dan TUN telah gagal melihat keupayaan AAB sebenarnya sehingga kini telah banyak kerosakan berlaku disebabkan tidak cemerlang nya AAB.
    5.Olih yang demikian ada lah wajar TUN dipersalahkan. Dan TUN mesti bertanggung jawab untuk menyelesaikan kesilapan nya melantik AAB sebagai pengantinya yang telah banyak melakukan kesilapan demi kesilapan.
    6.Maka itu TUN mesti berada semula didalam UMNO,BN dan kerajaan(jika perlu) untuk menyelesaikan kemelut ini dan diberi kuasa untuk memperbaiki semula keaadaan dan merawat segala macam penyakit yang ada dalam kerajaan mahu pun UMNO dan BN.
    7.Penglibatan untuk perkara ini TUN tak bolih di lengahkan lagi.
    kerana keaadaan UMNO,BN,rakyat dan negara semakin NAZAK.
    8.Majoriti rakyat melihat hanya TUN yang mampu untuk melakukan pembersihan ini.
    9.Sebagai nasihat pada ahli2 UMNO supaya merenung perkara ini jauh,tidak hanya merenung pada kepentingan diri sendiri.TUN mesti disokong semula dan berkerjasama dengan TUN demi bangsa,agama dan negara.Semoga seluruh rakyat dapat menikmati semula keindahan sewaktu TUN meneraju negara.InshaALLAH.
    10.AAB,KJ and CO. mesti terima hakikat bahawa segala perangcangan putar belit,agenda tersembunyi dan permainan politik wang anda semua telah dilihat olih rakyat dengan jelas. Semua nya itu tidak membawa kebaikan untuk rakyat dan negara.Maka dengan itu dipersilakan lah untuk berundur segera.Terima kasih.
    11.Kerajaan tetap akan menganugerah darjah kebesaran TUN pada AAB selepas bersara……TUN ABDULLAH….FuhYOOOOO….

    che det, actually yang lupa itu bukan melayu
    tetapi bangsa cina & india yang menetap di sini dari dahulu lagi
    yang diberi kebebasan beragama, sehingga ada yang membunuh & menyembelih apabila ada saudara maranya memeluk islam,
    yang diberi kebebasan berniaga & cari kekayaan & tak kurang juga mencari kemiskinan kerana terlalu banyak berjudi & minuk arak,
    yang diberi kebebasan berpuak-puak, sehingga wujud golongan penghasut supaya anti kerajaan melayu,
    yang diberi kebebasan melakukan rasuah, sehingga banyak melayu corrupted hari ini, yang diberi kebebasan menindas pelajar melayu di universiti tempatan (ive been there, i know)
    yang diberi kebebasan beranak pinak mcm hamster, cuba balik negara masing-masing tengok apa jadi
    yang diberi kebebasan sehingga pada hari hendak memijak kepala tuan tanah iaitu orang melayu pula
    syabas kepada bangsa-bangsa ini, anda sebenarnya tidak reti berterima kasih!!

  128. ahlikedaikopi Sep 12,2008 6:49 AM

    agreed totally with my2sen argument posted on 9/11.
    when people started to talk about social contract, it makes me wonder whether both sides really to sacrifice certain something…
    yeah yeah…everybody must be treated equally and everybody is true blue Malaysian…
    but why the issues mentioned by my2sen still existed till today? i’ve been in the private sectors half of productive worker’s years and my position allowed me to see things that some ignorant young malays as well as the eagerly young rempits never see, a true selective discrimination targeted at races other than the mgmt…so what gives???? talk about equality…why don’t everybody adopt such term first…openly as well as behind closed doors of private sectors..
    tun,
    selamat berpuasa

    Apa Khabar tun,
    Tun kritik dengan apacarapun sekalipun Abdullah tak akan letak jawatan,dia nak sampai tahun 2010 juga. Dengan masuk balik dalam umno ni,tun boleh tolong kempen dapatkan kouta 30% tu, dan bagi lah pada sapa tun rasa berkalayakan untuk betanding Dec nanti.Sapa tak kenal tun, abdullah pun kenal, bukan takat 30%, lebih dari itupun boleh dapat.Apa macam tun….

  130. Zaiby Sep 12,2008 6:19 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    I do share with some of the visitors in your blog that the country is really in a state of kiosk. This is probably due to those with hidden agendas are trying to strike as much prior to the departure of the current PM in mid 2010. Only God knows if he still have the opportunity that long.
    It is so unfortunate that some politicians don’t care a damn about maintaining stability despite of knowing the rights of the Bumiputras both from the Peninsular and Sabah/Sarawak as stipulated in the country’s Constitution. It seems like the game now is about forcing the changes by playing on empty slogans so that even the Bumiputras too begin to join them.
    For example the “Ketuanan Rakyat”, is a slogan for equality among citizen. Do we really have equality in the economic fields? Every area is under the control of a single ethnic group. It goes from food, clothing, machinery and many others, you name it. Even if they were owned by the Bumiputras at one time, today the owner has changed though the name don’t.
    It is also very sad that they have translated the NEP for allowing fairness to the Bumiputras as “Ketuanan Melayu”. This is another empty slogan being mishandled by the today’s young politicians and this had caused racial instability the worst ever.
    Elected politicians have sworned before the Speakers to maintain and safeguard the country’s constitutions. Now what happened to all these, the rakyat are near to being burned down by their rejection to it.
    Before another May 1969 happens, it is best for the Government to conduct a National Referendum on whether the Rakyat is prepared for the abolition of the special rights to the Bumiputras both in the Peninsular and Sabah/Sarawak. This is the most appropriate manner of exercising “Ketuanan Rakyat”.
    If the result is affirmative, this shall then lead to the decision if whether racial base parties and any form of racial reference and priorities in their day to day life to be abolished too or not. If it does, then any form of discrimination shall then be made unlawful.
    So, shall the politician stops here or be made to face the real “Ketuanan Rakyat” with the referendum will have to be decided by the Government in power or else the whole country has nothing else to do but politics, politics and politics.

    Tun,
    Tun adalah pembohong besar dari dulu sampai sekarang…..cakap Tun tidak ada makna bila masuk semula Umno semasa Pak Lah jadi presidennya.
    Tun adalah pembohong besar juga semasa menyingkir DS Anwar dulu….
    jadi Tun tidak berubah juga dari segi membuat bohong.
    marilah Tun dan kita semua berhenti berbohong.
    Semoga kita selamat melalui Islam sebenar

  132. malayspirit Sep 12,2008 5:30 AM

    Dear Tun,
    I agreed with you, Pak Lah should STEP DOWN as Prime Minister and Najib is not the right candidate to become Prime Minister of Malaysia.
    If Najib become Prime Minister, Malaysia will become like Singapore.
    He will sell of Malaysia to Chinese. He’s like a stupid buffalow, just follow what ever Chinese said,tq for today.

  133. Telus Sep 12,2008 5:30 AM

    What we really need is education. Constant education. No matter who, where and when.
    Educate people how unique Malaysia is. Why we have such a structure. Malaysia or the land of the Malay initially situated in between of the great civilisations in India and China. The rules, the contract, the way we carried ourselves, the way we were governed was partly to ensure that we can survive among the great civilisations of the world. We are not living on our own, we are surrounded by all, near and far, the Chinese, the Indian, the British, the Japanese, the Indonesian. We gave leeway to everyone, almost everyone, we ask for something back, our share. Yes, some of us made mistake, embarrasing mistake. I say, change the people, change the way but don’t change the principles, don’t change our rights!
    We fought for our rights. We got it written in the constitution. People ask, why do you need that right? It’s for our nation building. We are building the people. At the same time, we don’t forget to help other people.
    Again, we will keep the rights, the rules, the contract. We will change the people who abused the rights, the rules and the contract.
    We need to re-educate people. Everyone must understand his/her responsibility, the Malays, the Chinese, the Indian. We will compete freely when we are at the same level. When? We are working on it. Don’t stop us now.

    dear tun,
    politicians come and politicians go. they are the cynical and opportunistic breed of promoters of their parties. it is very sickening to hear them ranting that we are Malays, Chinese and Indians all the time as if the Malays are the white people and the other races are the immigrants.
    I am a Chinese and I have the belief as a nation of Malaysians, we have prospered together. Every time when there is a power struggle the UMNO is quick to play the racist sentiment, and I can only trust and praised leaders who are pacifists and inspire us to unity without reference to the color of our skin.
    We are not your innocent herds of lambs to be played into slaughter whenever there is a crisis of political power. My dear Tun, you are advocating a theory of fear whatever game you are playing when you take the fight to oust the PM. Do not play the race card or make believe concerns about the PM’s ability to hold the unity of Malaysians. He is still is the democratically elected leader of the country and do not used a racial sentiment to put fear into people.
    As Ahmad Said debacle continues on, you can see the effect of a small ripple brewing into a storm. Sir, if you take the expedient way of invoking fear, I am sure you are not the better man. Find relevant issues, economic ones and lead us on a united vision of the country. Use confrontation in a non violent way, as espoused by Gandhi.
    Everyone is getting on the bandwagon now (the Army as well as the Royals, making public statements) and I am afraid that an eye will make us blind. Do not make a Malay hate another Malay. You have always said you support UMNO but not the Pemimpin. But your constant barrage and hatred of him, is splitting the people. We, Chinese always have believed that a true gentleman will always respect the dignity of his opponent and give ‘face’. If you take the fight to the end, then you make it hard to reunite the factions. Winner does not take it all. Your beloved UMNO will be much weaken.

    Dear sir, it is untrue that if any racial statement came out from the opposition, ISA will be round the corner but in Ahmad Ismail case the police didn’t take any action. How’s about Karpal’s previous statement against the YDP AGONG and Guan Eng’s against the constitution on NEP nothing happens. I’m against Ahmad as well and Ahmad is a very bad leader indeed since I personally know him, he’s an opportunist ..

    I always see the so called Bar Council as the ungrateful one in my point of view. They are just like the HINDRAF, showing off and trying to be heroes to Indians. Just take alert on the majority of the council’s comity, and most of them support the Hindraf. I say the ultimate authority of the BAR should be put under the SPBYDP AGONG. If not, they will not be self conscious and act like monkeys on the wrong tree. Anwar will never resume power in the government, GOD will never allowed a CORRUPTED REPTILE (dua alam) to rule this ISLAMIC country. Wassalam.

Di sebalik kehilangan nyawa, Orang Cina akan kehilangan harta benda dan business yang paling besar, Orang Melayu juga tidak terlepas dari kerugian ini walaupun tak sebesar Orang CIna, dan Orang India mungkin akan jadi mangsa paling teruk kerana bilangan mereka yang paling kecil. Tapi saya setuju dengan tuan kerana nila setitik, rosak susu sebelanga (Ahmad Ismail).
    To normal citizen on September 10, 2008 5:59 PM
    In my opinion the Malays that voiced rejecting the “Social Contact” fall in these categories:
    i. They were born with ‘silver spoon’ where they neglected the Malay from Kampungs and their needs (they don’t even aware that Kampung’s Malay exist).
    ii. They are as much as liberal like the BAR (want to act as sophisticated as they can become)
    iii. They are the instrument for the EXTREME RACIST of the non malays.
    As for Pak Lah, what to say he’s a 3L(LEMBAB LEMBUT LEMBIK) with tremendous big appetite. Good day sir. Same as u bro, looking forward towards TUN’s next step.

    Hello there .. please prove the Social Contract has a validity and effective on Generation 1 migrants only ..a very danger instigator you are ..only irresponsible parents will not tell the truth to their children .. are your parents one of them? You are just an ungrateful Indian happen to be born in Malaysia and forget oneself. Imagine if you’re born in the US.. your arrogant will be under those foot of the Mat Salleh. Can you name one Indian in the American Senate.. I wont hate all Indians just because of you. Don’t breed hatred in this country. Sorry to say that you are part of the failure in system just like a virus in the computer and must be deleted. Don’t be to much arrogant please remind yourself to eat in the banana leaf once in a while. I love Indian food. Please be grateful because you’re born in Malaysia and not India. You know what I mean.
    This is what you have commented in your blog:
    ‘But I have one theory on those who support you and wish to stay anonymous – they have no minds of their own. These people have no integrity nor strength to present their ideas responsibly on what they think is wrong in Malaysia. These people have no ability to provide constructive criticisms, sincere suggestions on improvement, and they will hide behind a Pseudonym giving pointless comments like “Apanama” …in short, they are sheep!’
    Is your Bahasa Malaysia is as good as your English. Prove it in your next writing if you claim to be so called “sophisticated person” and a good citizen. You are just a cheap citizen trying to gain cheap support for your seditious blog that’s full of hatred within you. You have a conflict in within you sir. You are sick .. get help .. sincere help.

    I do agree with on certain facts and disagree on some. The BAR is should not challenge the Malays and Muslim .. such a foolish act from the community that claim they are the intellectuals .. Yes the current PM must step down, aren’t you aware of whats being going on .. You think majority of Malays doesn’t mind to what the BAR has done and their ignorance in their actions.. How about the Malay rights that are hardly infringed and threatened, your words are too subjective and leaning to in favorable to your kind only, not majority. You talk about blood and sweat of Malaysians in philosophy basis .. How about the blood and sweat of the Malay warriors of the past who fought in the battlefield on physically basis leaving their left behinds as widows and orphans. The openness of the current PM is a complete act of stupidity that’s trying to gain influence from people of your kind. What do they get in return? You said Malaysian are not racist generally, yes they are not unless provoked. TUN have tons of concrete plan then your tiny brain can imagine and it was proven.. don’t deny for the sake of winning talks .. very irrational of you saying that “TUN have very little concrete plans on what to do in this situation beside asking Pak Lah to step down”. Please don’t take this current situation for granted. Just live with the Social Contract and the Malays will open their heart and share the prosper with you.. We Malays are not giving up the KING and other should not too.

    Dearest ayahanda Tun,
    We Malays has always been democratic to other races that lives in TANAH MELAYU…we have given them the right to be a citizen of Malaya and later Malaysia, we waived the 1st Million of them to be citizen…compare to other countries…these races would not even come close to what they get from us…
    Maybe they need to be reminded of what really happened in 13th May 69…It happened in Jakarta in 1999..where thousands of chinese indonsia were killed by the peribumi’s…
    Honestly, there is a few of us are sick and tired of these minorities asking OUR RIGHTs…
    There will never be equality…it is always going to be NEP…
    As an ex serviceman in the military, We will fight and will die if need to protect the rights of bumiputera..i know a large amount of us in the military, which is majority malays, wouldn’t mind to do some clansing…if its needed to be..

  138. Jessie Sep 12,2008 3:53 AM

    Hello Sir…
    This comment is regarding about JJJ’s very eye-catching comment as it was all in CAPITAL LETTERS.
    I, myself for one, find using full capital letters as very offensive and irrational – I hope you were practising what you preach there JJJ when you said about ‘controlling emotions.’
    Economic stability is very, very, VERY important in this era. The technology is advancing SO fast, we (Malaysia as a WHOLE) cannot afford to slip and fall behind – we are still a developing country.
    I’ve scanned through a few earlier comments, and I found it quite conventional. Sir, let me ask you a question. Why does McDonalds never seem to run out of business? It is because of BRAND LOYALTY and a sense of FAMILIARITY – its like a sense of security.
    This could be a reason why people are so determined for you to have leadership again. You lead Malaysia and by no denials, it was a great job and that is why people could possibly feel that if they revert back to you – Malaysia is safe.
    It is a very dangerous tactic, sir. It is being conventional.
    ‘Conventionality is the refugee for the stagnant mind.’
    People can’t seem to handle change and CHANGE is what is needed in this country. It seems to me that every race is over-confident. They go back to the history of Malaysia, fair enough. There is always two-sides to a story, history is just the outline.
    What Malaysia needs is a wake-up call. Take Malays out, Malaysia will fall. Take Chinese out, Malaysia will fall. Take Indians out, Malaysia will fall.
    Malaysia needs, not one, but the three races TOGETHER to survive. and COME ON dear readers, why are you guys saying: ‘this race is lazy, that race is dumb’ ???
    Take some examples:
    My cousin and I are of the same race, but I’m not as intelligent as her.
    I have 2 Indian friends, but one of them is lazier.
    I have many 2 close Malay friends, but one is much smarter and more intellectual than the other.
    What is my point? EVEN if any of you are of the SAME race – there are still different attributes and intellectual level. Do you not get it?? It is really ridiculous to say ‘this race, that race’ as if the WHOLE of that race is this way and the WHOLE of that race is another.
    Since LEE CHONG WEI has won silver in Olympics for Badminton, does that mean the WHOLE chinese society are SUPERB in badminton? Certainly not, because as far as I know, I am chinese but I can barely jump up and down, flicking the badminton racket.
    This whole racial issue is a political gimmick to stir up publicity and problems.
    What happens when three so-called ‘enemies’ are faced with one ultimate enemy? They JOIN together to fight that ONE MAIN ENEMY and this ONE MAIN ENEMY of Malaysia, is our rocky and destabilized economy. We won’t forever have rubber in our ‘tanah’… It WILL deplete and where are we going to compete in the international export/import market then?
    Also, I know many of you find Pak Lah weak, but he IS our current PM – and as far as I see it : give a minimal amount of respect to our Pak Lah. It is not easy being a PM and just because he may not be as quick-witted as our Dr. M, doesn’t give us the right to call him non-sensible names.
    Pak Lah, Dr. M, and our ex-PMs .. No matter what it is, they all contributed to Malaysia in different ways and that suffices as a reason to give our minimal amount of respect to them.
    Dr. M, we really should stop all this political bickering and get on with focusing on other major World Economical issues that affects us too right?
    Good morning to all, and take care to all.

    salam Tun,
    saya menyambut baik yang tun akan masuk balik UMNO. lagi baik kalau tun bertanding jawatan dalam UMNO. bila saja dengar khabar tun masuk UMNO balik, tun lihat sendiri bagaimana sambutan rakyat? ok kan? tun tak percaya lagi ke? rakyat akan sokong tun. ,masih ada pemimpin berwibawa dalam kabinet sekarang yg sokong tun. memang perangai kita org melayu hormat ketua, dah tu pulak tak suka nak cari pasal dengan ketua. tapi bila dah perlu tegur ketua, kena tegur jugak. ini untuk kebaikan.ketua harus faham, teguran itu mesti ada makna tersendiri.
    macam ni tun, tun nak masuk UMNO kan, lepas tu Tun bertanding semula. kalau boleh biar jawatan yg penting. yg tertinggi pun tak ape. mesti rakyat sokong tun.pemimpiin mcm tun mmg diperlukan lebih2 lagi di kala ini.
    satu saya nak tegur, kenapa rakyat pendatang asing makin bermaharaja lela di negara kita ini. macam2 jenayah dah dia org buat.celaka dia orang tu. tak sedar diri. terutama yang indon. saya benci betul dengan dia orang tu. mana polis kita? kepada pemimpin negara tingkatkanlah inisiatif dan tindakan tertentu untuk halang mereka ini dari menganggu gugat orang kita. kebanyakan perompak yang suka ikat, ugut dgn senjata tulah indon. polis diminta lebih agressiflah.jgn tunggu rakyat yang ketakutan bertindak sendiri jadi polis untuk selamatkan diri masing2.
    saya hairan dgn anwar ibrahim. saya benci betul dgn anwar ibrahim. dia munafik. 4 ciri2 orang munafik sudah jelas nampak pada diri anwar. mcm mana dia nak tumbangkan kerajaan dengan mencuri ahli parlimen BN supaya masuk PKR. kalau ini berlaku maknanya demokrasi dah tak pakai dah. sebuah kerjaan yang dipili oleh rakyat tidak seharusnya ditukar dgn cara yg anwar mahukan. itu melanggar hak asasi rakyat yang menyokong kerajaan. bila hati rakyat terguris maka mereka yg tidak bertanggung jawab ini boleh dianggap mengganggu ketenteraman rakyat. mereka boleh didakwa. tapi kenapa dibiarkan? hairanlah. saya budak setahun jagung pun boleh pikir. rancangan anwar semacam ini boleh membahayakan masa depan politik negara. mana tidaknya anwar dah galakkan , tidak mustahil orang lain akan ikut cara yg sama. maka kalau jadi macam itu maknanya dah tak amanlah negara kita ini. anwar tak fikir ke perkara ini. ya tak ya jugak, mana anwar nak pikir, diakan orang munafik yang tak sayang dan hormat hati rakyat majority yang menyokong kerajaan.
    baiklah tun, setakat ini saja komen saya.

  141. Onlooker Sep 12,2008 2:39 AM

    Tun,
    I have some subtle feeling that you are still keen to see the outcome of Umno party election to be in line with what you expect the outcome to be! Since you have not in so far announced openly that what you expect the Umno election outcome to be (with the exception of your openly asking Pak Lah to resign from the Presidency of Umno and from the premiership), therefore there are still a lot of rooms for you to meditate on the question of whether to rejoin Umno or not to rejoin!
    First of all, please ask yourself: “Why do I need to rejoin Umno?”
    Perhaps you missed those glorious days of the past when you were surrounded by many fancy supporters during the periods when you were sitting in the power necleus. Once you had retreated from the power nucleus, people would try to be funny and dare enough to spray some peppers onto your face and then your eyes would be irritated with the pepper attack. However, does Tun still want to sacrifice all your pleasure time on many trivial matters in relation to politics again like what you had come across during your 22 years’ tenure in the PM’s office? Does Tun realize that Tun’s essay writings have indeed attracted a lot of blog readers from all around the world? Doesn’t this phenomenon seems to be another glory which will bring plentiful good sense of self-actualization for Tun in the retirement age?
    Many people had given the honour of “father of development” to the late Tun Abdul Razak. However, I was not able to understand Tun Abdul Razak in detail even though I was already in Form 3 when Tun Abdul Razak passed away in heart attack. I tried to find some readings of his personal writing but I could not find a lot of paper contributions which had been written personally by Tun Abdul Razak. I could only recall the remembrance about Tun Abdul Razak by the personal impression he had given me through the implementation of Rancangan Buku Hijau, the introduction of New Economic Policy, the establishment of MARA, and the handshake photo of the late Premier of People’s Republic of China, Mr Chow En Lai, and the late Tun Abdul Razak during the later’s visit to Beijing. Because Tun Abdul Razak did not leave behind him with a lot of essay writings, it was highly sceptical that the Malaysians who were born after the demise of Tun Abdul Razak would be able to know much about this great statesman who was called “the father of development of Malaysia”.
    I first came to know about Tun when Tun was having the first official visit to Seremban as the Minister of Education. However, I only started to realize that Tun was indeed a biased man who had provoked a lot of controversial argument when I first read in early 1980s the book written by Tun which was titled “The Malay Dilemma”. Even though the Non-Malays in Malaysia already gave Tun a strong endorsement in general election 1999, this strong support was given to Tun based on these reasons:
    1) Giving thanks to Tun for not taking the Non-Malays as the racist scapegoat for purpose of mobilising political support around yourself in the midst of financial turmoil as the aftermath of speculative currency attack in 1997-1998.
    2) Taking into consideration that peace and national unity were critical factors for restoration of the nation’s economic prosperity, therefore Tun was again being given the strong mandate to restore peace and national unity in order to bring forth another round of economic prosperity for the whole nation.
    However, the result of General Election 1999 was still inadequate to wash away the misconception or false perception of racist label on Tun due to the dirts and taints that had been negatively added to Tun’s image by the lopesided book of “The Malay Dilemma”.
    In view of Tun’s very excellent and vivid writing skill, I would suggest that Tun should give a serious thought about writing a book on decison making process for developmental economics. Hopefully, with the contributions of Tun in writing such a book, the future generations of Malaysia will be able to understand much better on how the success can be achieved by making always the right decision and failure be avoided from Tun’s administrative experiences and personal advices. I hope such a valuable book about developmental economics will also benefit some other less developed nations in the African Continent or the South American Continent since Tun would have a lot of pleasurable experiences to tell and translate them into model building for the political leaders of other continents to adopt and follow.
    I think writing a book that allows the humans to quest for excellence by following the examples which have been demonstrated by Tun with Tun’s 22 years’ practical experiences of implementation will surely provide much better self-actualization to Tun than another round of winning situation in the Umno party election by Tun’s nominees. After all, politics are a weary and tiredsome affair which involved with a lot of personal hostility and enmity. It is much better for Tun to leave it to those potential candidates like Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to find their own way out for a leading edge in the party election. Only the leaders who can win with their own political strength will be able to stay long in politics for ensuring a long-term political stability of the party.
    As for your good son Dato Mukhriz, it is much better that you leave him alone, lest people will accuse him for enjoying the uplift in politics by helicopter of nepotism as compared to other opponents’ resort to only climbing the ladder of grassroot support by self-serving empty-handedness. Like the Chinese old saying goes, “The sons or grandsons will have their own bountiful blessings in accordance with their personal destiny. Therefore there is no need for the old folk to foreever serve them diligently like a functional horse or functional bullock!”
    What for if Tun is to serve the younger generations too much too often when what the younger generations really need is a chance to grow by themselves in order to achieve personal independence? Even if the younger generations will eventually have to distance Tun due to Tun’s showing indifference and impartiality, there is nothing much to be worried about. No matter how and no matter what, the Almighty will always be with Tun!

    In the village of Kandhala in India a dispute arose between the muslims and the Hindus over some land; the hindus claimed that the land belonged to them and wanted to build a temple on it, the muslims claimed the land belonged to them and wanted to build a mosque on it.
    The case went to court, both sides were asked to produce evidence as to whom the land belonged to. The Hindus said there is a pious elder in our village called Illahi Baksh (ra) what ever testimony he gives we will accept it. The Muslims were delighted, after all one of their own would be able to testify on their behalf, so they also stated that Shaykh Illahi Baksh’s(ra) verdict would be acceptable to them.
    Shaykh Illahi Baksh(ra) was summoned to court and asked who the Land belonged to he said: ” I don’t know who the land belongs to, but one thing I do Know is that it does not belong to the Muslims.”
    So the Hindus Won the court case the deeds of the land were handed over to them. In the courtroom their was chaos, the Muslims were incensed, as the Shaykh was leaving the court people were jostling him, shouting insults calling him a Hindu agent etc.
    As he managed to extract him self from the mob of Muslim’s. the Hindus were waiting on the other side, the Hindus came over and said:”Maulana Sahib here are the deeds of the land , we want you to build a mosque, and we shall also worship in it, Maulana sahib we want to be Muslim just like you, for today you have proven the beauty and justice of Islam.”
    Shaykh Illahi Baksh by behaving justly in accordance with the teachings of Islam managed to win over a whole community, they all embraced Islam.
    Something to reflect:
    How often do we fall into the sin of injustice, we support our relatives in disputes with others even though we know they are wrong, similarly with those who belong to our ethnic group, tribe, clan, and those who are fellow muslim’s we seek to make excuses for them in their transgressions towards others.
    May Allah give us the Tawfiq and strength to stand for what is just, ameen.

    Dear fellow malaysians,
    Don’t play into the hands of dirty politicians. All they are interested is to stay in power, and power means money. They create hatred among races to divide and rule, to gain support and to strike fear in your hearts. All this talks about ahmad, the social contract and etc is to provoke you to take sides. While you busy killing one another, they are consolidating their power and counting their money. This is a rotten tactic played 40 years ago until today.

    bangsa ku..
    orang melayu dahulu tidak tahu apa yang berlaku kepada perjanjian dengan penjajah untuk mencapai kemerdekaan,tahap pemikiran mereka lemah akibat dijajah.. untuk memahami sesuatu perkara terlalu lambat.. mungkin tiada blog, atau sms.. kalau sampai berita pada mereka hanyalah perkataan MERDEKA.. maka bersoraklah bagai gempita melaungkan perkataan keramat itu.. bersorak sakan.. mengangis seolah selama ini mereka terseksa yang amat sangat.. mereka terlupa yang kampung mereka sudah tergadai.. nasi dah jadi bubur.. orang bertandang yang untung.. sedar lah melayu semua.. ini lah akibatnya kalau alpa,leka.. kita banyak bercakap.. konon tak kan melayu hilang didunia.. sedarlah perkatan tersebut hanya terdapat di MUZIUM negara sahaja.. kenapa??? tak percaya??
    orang melayu.. bangsa ku.. buatlah seperti mana yang mereka buat.. lihat lah.. tiada seorang pun bangsa mereka yang membeli beras,gula,garam di permis orang melayu.. sebaliknya orang melayu berduyun duyun mengkayakan mereka.. pelik tapi benar.. buat pengamatan secara mendalam.. dengan kayanya mereka dapatlah mereka melobi menteri.. sehinggakan anda seolah berada di Taiwan atau Hong Kong bila melihat tv.. tak percaya lagi?? terpulang.. apapun mulai hari ini.. saat ini.. kalau nak beli gula,garam.. hatta kapal sekalipun.. cari lah bangsa kamu.. kalau tiada.. ada kan.. itu saja yang dapat menolong bangsa.. bukan di PWTC.. terpekik terlolong.. tong kosong rupanya..

    assalamualaikum Tun,
    saya cadangkan Tun bertanding balik presiden, saya tahu ramai yang sokong Tun didalam dan diluar UMNO. saya juga cadangkan Tun gerakan satu perhimpunan ahli-ahli UMNO satu malaysia untuk meminta pak lah resign secepat mungkin… kita semua sayangkan UMNO..

    And one more thing i learn abt national security. and this method of thinking have been applied within the most powerful military in the world.
    Theres only one meaning abt national security. The ppl who uphold and protect the national security and the ppl who against it. Theres no such thing abt thinking or debating abt it or atas pagar abt it.
    So since social contract ensures the security of all races within this country all this while so therefore to the ones who agreed with it, is the ones that uphold the national security and the ones who debate abt it, is the ones who against the national security. As simple as that.
    There are no substitute for a secure and safe society.

    Salam Tokdet…
    Nampaknya Abg Dol semakin kepanasan, namun masih bongkak dan takbur memandang sinis bila mendengar kepulangan Tun dari perantauan…
    Peluh jantan mula membasahi dahinya tok, senyuman di bibir tatkala selesai majlis akad nikahnya dengan Jean sudah tidak kelihatan, diganti dengan bibir tejuih menjawab soalan para wartawan tiap kali diajukan soalan…
    Harapan kami tok, Abg Dol segera disingkirkan dengan apa jua cara dan keadaan…
    Pengkhianat bangsa, agama dan negara ini harus dihumbang ke neraka tok, bersama para sidang wazirnya yang semakin keluh kesah, dan resah, mereka yang hanya pentingkan harta dan kedudukan juga jawatan…
    Perkemaskan langkahmu tok, bersedialah untuk perhitungan yang terakhir ini, perhitungan untuk bangsa, agama dan negara tok…
    Kecelakaan yang menimpa negara 7 tahun ini akan berakhir, dan rakyat jelata tidak sabar menanti detik kemenangan itu…
    Perasapkan kerismu tok, pastikan Abg Dol dan kuncu-kuncunya tidak lagi bernyawa selepas ini,
    pastikan… tiada lagi pengkhianat durjana yang hanya mementingkan kesenangan diri dia atas penderitaan rakyat jelata…
    Terima kasih insan yang bernama MAHATHIR MOHAMAD.

    Salam TUN. Very much agree with u on this matter. This growing issue must be checked before it gets out of hand. Can your return to UMNO in any way make any changes as paklah is still at the helm. Anyway best of everything to you.

  150. sha68 Sep 12,2008 1:57 AM

    A’kum Tun,
    Syukur Alhamdullilah kalau betul Tun nak masuk balik UMNO. Kita memang perlukan Tun dalam parti. “Orang-Orang” dalam parti skrang tengah duk lena di buai mimpi sama macam presiden depa.
    Saya sokong Tun 100% untuk masuk skrang,jgn tunggu sampai Pak Lah letak jawatan which saya rasa dia tak kan letak pun.
    Najib tu pun dah kena badi Pak Lah, lembik semacam skrang nie. Skrang nie saya dah tak ada confident yang Najib layak jadi PM. Dia sepatutnya dah bersedia untuk ambil alih jawatan tu skrang bukan nya tunggu sampai 2010. Awat dia ingat tahun 2010 dia boleh “cuci kaki masuk duk bersila” saja ke ? Dia tak sedar yg masa tu lagi banyak tahi Pak Lah yg dia nak kena cuci sebelum pilihanraya ke 13.

  151. rozi66 Sep 12,2008 1:49 AM

    Salam Tun,
    Abi,
    Honestly, I pity you and your attitude. Kalau keep on thinking like this, musti sakit jiwa punye….
    Whatever u wrote clearly show that you don’t understand what Tun is trying to convey and his stand on the issues. Your hatred towards Tun clouding yr judgement.
    By the way, mind yr language a bit. We can have disagreement but not to a level of being rude to others.
    God bless all of us.

    Assalamualaikum Tun dan semua,
    Saya tak mau komen mengenai tajuk niii. Cuma …………..selama ni, walaupun saya ada sikit kritik Tun dan bagi pandangan yang….tak tau nak kata lah,sampai Tun tak letak dalan dalam blog tp saya masih lagi sangat mengkagumi Tun dan amat menghormati Tun.
    Sekarang nii, kalau Tun masuk balik UMNO,tak taulah.Macam ludah lepas tu jilat balik…… saya cadangkan supaya Tun kekal dgn keputusan Tun,iaitu, masuk balik UMNO hanya selepas Pak Lah letak jawatan….
    Sekian…

    Ok abt the social contract.
    1. It works all this while.
    2. If we dont have it, our country will become like a tinderbox just waiting for one schmuck to light it up just like in 1969.
    It is simple as that, dont need to go to University in America or as far as Pluto (if theres any) to figure it out.

  155. austozi Sep 12,2008 1:22 AM

    Dear Tun,
    The worrying development, sir, is the tendency of certain Malay communities to continue to view the privileges given to them as their birthrights. They take great pride in receiving these privileges, and take offence at any suggestion that these privileges should be rescinded.
    I respect the special privileges granted to the Bumiputeras as guatanteed in the Federal Constitution, and I hope the Bumiputeras will respect my rights as a non-Bumiputera in the same way. In addition, we also need to realise that many of the privileges currently being handed out are not part of the Federal Constitution but later add-ons.
    Those receiving the said privileges should realise that being granted privileges at the mercy of others is not something to be proud of. And they should therefore strive to get out of that situation as soon as possible to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the other members in the community. They should therefore not seek to perpetuate the policy that grants them the privileges they now enjoy.
    If I were to be blunt, it was just ironic that a superior race should need these privileges to survive. “Unggul but mundur” just does not make sense. You may be either but not both at the same time. Malay supremacy and special aid in the form of privileges make a very odd couple.
    Those who think they need the privileges badly because life is difficult should realise there are other people in the same sinking boat who not only undergo the same difficulty in life but at the same time are burdened with the task of keeping these “privileged” people afloat. I am talking about the poor people of other races who receive no privileges. The privileges some people (even the rich) enjoy come at the expense of the welfare of these poor, under-privileged people.
    It is on this basis that I question certain provisions in the social contract (I do not question all of it). The people of UMNO, MCA, MIC, KeAdiLan or DAP, who are rich enough to not feel the pain, do not even come into the picture.
    It’s all well said but change is difficult to achieve in real life. Very few at the receiving end of such privileges will willingly give up the goodies they so enjoy and have come to depend on.
    I am also of the opinion that the Malay Muslims in Malaysia have become increasing (over-)defensive in light of recent developments in the global arena, such as the Iraq war. They often identify themselves as Muslim brethrens under attack and are wary of “outsiders”. Unfortunately the other races, albeit Malaysian, come under this category. Before Islam became the target of the current USA administration, this was not a phenomenon, and Malaysians generally opened themselves up to one another and lived in harmony.
    Tun, the social contract has been in constant discussion amongst Malaysians even when you were in power. But we just didn’t question it so much during the good times because whatever goodies we were left with were quite satisfying. Also, we believed the social contract worked, and there was a need for it. In recent years, various politicians have dishonoured the social contract and so we the people have come to believe that it does not work anymore. We generally agree that whatever formula we used to stabilise our country for the last 50 years worked. The one thing we cannot agree on is whether the social contract was the formula in question. Even if it was, perhaps its time is up (after all, things have changed a great deal in 50 years) and it’s time to move on to something more befitting the current situation in Malaysia.
    I think it is only a natural development for Malaysia that the people should start to think about the country’s future for themselves. I only hope is that the people of Malaysia have the maturity to deal with it.

  156. bluesgang77 Sep 12,2008 1:11 AM

    Dear Tun,
    Please let me put this in a perspective, theres a guy commenting badly abt Tun come back and it says something that Tun afraid of DSAI. It resolves around this :
    1. Scenario 1 – Pak Lah ruling
    Economic Issues that threathen our local daily lives and of course the so call guy who used this situation for his campaign tactics (Anwar). And plus some racial tension.
    2. Scenario 2 – Mahathir ruling
    Economic Issues, actually he got hit 2 times, one in 1984 and second in 1997. Of course in 1997 the same culprit Anwar using it as part of his campaign. And of course there are some racial tensions too.Btw he got some headache handling Semangat 46 and Judiciary issue. Seriously compared 22 years of issues during Tun time and Pak Lah of 6 years running the show…….enough said
    But did u guys noticed something? The difference is Tun manage to score it all and bring prosperity to us but Pak Lah still didnt strike any yet. Thats the issue and thats a fact.
    Are u guys serious that hes afraid to some Malay dude that was born in Cherok Tok Kun? Cmon guys, in 1980’s this man (Tun) said “Buy British Last!” in the face of the most feared woman in the world Margaret Thatcher and not to forget he even engineered to score Sime Darby too. In 1990’s he called an Aussie PM a Deputy Sheriff to US and he even called the most powerful man in the world (George Bush) a liar!! in the face. Seriously guys, i dont think this guy is afraid of anything. And until this moment, I dont hear nothing from Pak Lah or Anwar critizing US on Iraq or whatever injustice happens around the world.
    PS, i’m not a Tun fan at first place but i acknowledge 2 things, he can score and he is bold. Ok so now Tun is coming back, do ur thing, solve the problems please. I’m getting fed up with both sides of the party now, the ruling having issues figuring out the cure for our country ills and the other side busy doing detectives job instead running the states that they have won.
    And this one for u Tun : FORTES FORTUNA JUVAT! – Fortune favors the bold. And I’m now officially ur fan.

  157. Justice Sep 12,2008 1:10 AM

    To our beloved Tun,
    This is my personal overview of everything that have happened. I’m not into politics or neither i know everything. Just a common citizen that are very concern with the country current situation.
    Saya dibesarkan di bawah kepimpinan Tun. Sepanjang kepimpinan itu, tak pernah pun our politik jadi sebegini dahsyat. Tun may not be perfect, but he surely had lead our country successfully. kita hidup dalam aman damai, negara makmur tanpa sebarang perbalahan.
    Org nak mempertikaikan kelemahan Tun sepanjang kepimpinannnya. begitu lama Tun memimpin, cuma bebrapa issue saja yg mampu dipertikaikan. Tapi, Pak Lah baru sekejap memerintah, macam2 issues keluar.
    The only mistake that Tun dah buat, is to think that Pak Lah can actually replace him and become a good leader. With the lately racist issue that is happening, mana Pak Lah? What has he done or even try to do to make things better? Hingga Anwar dapat mengambil kesempatan dan bangkit semula. Anwar ternyata menampakkan segala sikap buruknya. This is the true Anwar that everybody failed to see, but not Tun.
    One of the reader wrote that Pak Lah managed to overcome passport problem, dulu sebulan sekarang seminggu. Itu jer ker contribution Pak Lah as PM? Itu jer ker yg dia mampu. Sungguh memalukan. kalau nak dibandingkan dgn ape yg Tun dah lakukan, that is nothing!
    I believed, ape pun keputusan Tun adalah untuk kebaikan suma, bukan utk dirinya, anaknya @ menantunya. Keputusannya untuk kembali adalah atas dasar kasih sayng terhadap rakyat jelata dah negara yg diusahakannya selama ini.
    Biar ape pun tindakan Tun, ingatlah masih ramai yg sayang dan menyokong!

    SALAM AYAHANDA RAKYAT TUN,
    IZINKAN,
    By zuber on September 10, 2008 11:38 PM
    Tun,
    Macam biasa, sasarannya ialah Paklah. Dan saya tidak terkejut dengan kemasukan Tun ke dalam UMNO semula.It was just a market test. Tun tidak dapat respon yang baik bila berada diluar UMNO. Watak-watak penting yang diharapkan Tun untuk ikut jejak Tun hampir zero. Paklah membisu, membuatkan Tun semakin kacau. Pada hemat saya, Tun terpaksa berpatah balik kerana Tun sendiri yang terdesak:
    HANYA YANG KAMI KATAKAN KEPADA ‘ZUBER’,
    INSAN YANG MENGENAL MANA LETAK ‘TITIK’ NYA TIDAK KENAL APA DIA SIKAP ‘TAKUT’ DAN ‘TERDESAK’ TETAPI IANYA KENAL AKAN SIFAT ALLAH DAN RASUL NYA.
    MAHU BERJALAN SEBELUM MERANGKAK
    MAHU BERKATA SEBELUM BERPENGETAHUAN
    MAHU BERFIKIR SEBELUM BERILMU
    KAMI MOHON MAAF JIKA KATA HATI KAMI MENYINGGUNG PERASAAN PEMBACA.
    SELAMAT MENUNAIKAN TUNTUTAN RUKUN AGAMA DAN MENYAMBUT KEDATANGAN AIDIL FITRI YANG MULIA.
    MAAF ZAHIR DAN BATIN.
    ALFATIHAH, AMIN.

  159. ZACHARY64 Sep 12,2008 12:41 AM

    aswb Tun & fellow bloggers,
    As quoted by Tun ; So far we hear only the non-Malays rejecting the social contract. This is the first time I hear of Malays rejecting the social contract. I think the Government should handle this problem carefully. Otherwise it may become widespread and effect the fragile harmony between the different races.
    If the ruling government were to do referendum to the Rakyat today, whether they wanted to do away with NEP and bumis’ special right, most probably the non-Malays would vote for it, and then the remaining bumis majority would either support or reject it outright. Correct me, if am wrong as my guts feeling & observation tell me that the Non-Malays have already achieved the point they can’t tolerate to be regarded as 2nd and 3rd class citizens. after 50 years of MERDEKA, they wanted to be recognized as at par with their fellow Bumis .The so-called elite professionals and highly educated Malays seem to favour that the privilleges to be taken away from them as they believe they could survive in the real world competition. However, the mainstream Malay/bumis do not have the same level of confidence as their the elite counterpartand they would reject the referendum.
    Just view the statistics, the 30% bumis stake has not been achieved even under the full support of the NEP and the government’s assistance , grants, subsidies and etc.I just can’t imagine, if the NEP and the privilleges are to be rescinded/annuled, definitely the Malays/bumis’ equity in the economy going to doom for sure.
    This is the way that I look at the equity and income statistics. If the malays’/bumis’ equity were to increase, definitely the chinese communities’ wealth and equity would increase probably double fold as the chinese are the ones who control the economy. Juts look at the retailing industry being dominated by them. Can someone tell me any Malays/bumis who currently own a chain of supermarket, hypermarkets and etc ? Only MAIDEEN happened to be one of the few successful retailers.They rest are just self explanatory to everyone. Look at the propery industry and the supply chain network.
    The industry and the supply chain are still being dominated by them.
    even until now. the Malays/Bumis still cannot penetrate thier strangehold on this stratehic industry.
    Even If the 30% equity is fulfilled, I don’t think the mainstream Malays/Bumis would feel happy nor gratified. Why ? The Malays/bumis make up almost 60% of the total population , but yet the target set was only 30%. THE TARGET DOESN’T LOOK SENSIBLE HERE IF WERE TO LOOK AT THE RATIO OF THE POPULATION TO TARGET THE ECONOMIC EQUITY
    RATIO. BY RIGHT THE MAJORITY SHOULD HAVE MORE STAKES IF COMPARED WITH THE MINORITY IF WERE TO TALK ABOUT FAIR DISTRIBITION OF WEALTH WITHIN A COUNTRY..
    Futher quoted by Tun,’I believe racist sentiments among Malays and non-Malays are rising. If it flares up the stability of this country may be affected permanently. We may see political wrangling of the kind we see in several other countries. In the process the economy of this country would be destroyed’.
    Apparently the racist sentiment rise after Tun era is over and since AAB assume the role as the captain of the ship.He Propagates the Islam Hadhari , true democracy, freedom of speech that encourage the people to speak out. Now the people are even dare to speak on the sensitive issues that they did not dare during Tun’s era of governance.To make matter worse, the so-called DSAIB has unveil his mission statement to abolish the NEP and restore equality
    among the communities.They quickly begin to rally behind this so-called MESSIAH who are out to betray his own people.In fact by declaring Sept 16 as the Revolution day has destablize the country politically and economically. The foreign investors may comtemplating to move over their investment elsewhere and in the end the people and the government are the ones that will be victimized.
    IF WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY THEN WE SHOULD NOT ROCK THE BOAT AND LET THE BOAT SINKING.
    WASSALAM.
    it seems that the sancity and tranquility of the Ramadan has been disturbed and compromised.We are supposed to pray more, be patient and do good deeds rather than do the opposite,showing our bitterness, grudge and anger to one another.
    PLEASE RESPECT THE HOLY MONTH OF RAMADHAN.

    salam.
    isu kontrak sosial tidak akan padam. sebab utamanya ialah isu ini telah dipolitikkan. kaum cina dan india dalam kedudukan memilih pemimpin. jadi bila ada pemilihan pemimpin maka akan berlaku perpecahan kerana masing-masing nak cari penyokong. dalam kes ahmad ni, kira orang2 yang memberi kenyataan mestilah mahu menjadi hero dan mahu lebih ramai penyokong. ini bahananya bila isu2 sensitif di politikkan. tambahan pula isu ini telah digula2 dan dicili2kan. tambah panas dan hangat. media pun apa kurangnya dalam bertanggungjawab membesarkan lagi isu ni. hari3 memaparkan isu2 seperti ni. kadang2 ada media yang tidak bertanggugjawab menyiarkan berita yang boleh memanaskan lagi keadaan.

  161. kamikaze Sep 12,2008 12:26 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Selamat berpuasa,semoga sihat walafiat bersama keluarga tercinta.
    Pertama, semenjak kepinpinan negara diambil alih oleh DSAAB sebg perdana menteri, contract social ini telah menjadi satu perjuangan bukan melayu untuk menikmati ape yg telah diberikan kpd melayu.
    Kita tidak blh menyalahkan bukan melayu dlm memperjuangkan hak mereka kerana ini disebabkan kelalaian peminpin melayu sendiri.
    Lihat sahaja apa yang berlaku, pemimpin kita meminta maaf kpd org bukan melayu disbbkan keceluparan pemimpin bahagian tersebut sehingga digantung keahlian UMNO dan dilucutkan jawatan semata2 mahu mengambil hati org bukan melayu.
    Jadi, apa yang saya ingin katakan disini, melalui penulisan tun yg mengatakan tiada pemimpin melayu yg berani dan rakyat yg berani ttp sebenarnya tun. ADA RAKYAT YG BERANI tetapi tiada siapa yg boleh menjadi tunjuk ajar dalam mencari jalan keluar.
    tolong tun, tunjuk jalan keluar, rakyat makin derita, peniaga makin muflis, tiada projek besar. kalau ada pun utk kroni2 nya sahaja. Bukan sekadar menulis ttpi perlu dilakukan ibarat membina rumah ditepi pantai.
    sekian, rakyat yg sentiasa menyokong tun.

    Dear Tun,
    For all the guys out there, we are commenting in a blog owned by a guy that the world have acknowledged him as one of the finest and smartest guy in 20th Century. For sure he got his gameplan and he knows what hes doing, i can guarantee when he comes back to UMNO, he will come prepared. And its not abt the flip flop or watever crap u guys comment on him.
    Guys, please recall, this man and his crew pulled a stunt in restoring our economy in 1997 crisis by pegging the ringgit and plus some sub stunts that restores order in our country and make the majority so happy. Anwar Ibrahim and his buddy George Soros not so “chirpy” when he succeed on the economy part.
    Strangely ppl are so distracted abt 16 Sept, but we forgot abt 20th Disember. I got a hunch something amazing will happen. So Anwar and his crew got to step up the plan or u going to end up silenced in Permatang Pauh for a long time. And Anwar gotta wait for another world economic crisis to take advantage on for the opposition campaign. And maybe if that time come again, Anwar might be 90 and riding in a wheel chair hahaha.

    Assalamu’alaikum Tun yang dikasihi,
    I’m sure you saw over the Berita Perdana RTM to-night Si Bedul Badawi gave his remark on Mohidin’s statement to reconsider the handing over premiership to his Deputy soon before it’s too late in 2010. Did you the expression on his face and his body language? I could see how much he loathed Mohidin. If only he has the freedom, there and then he would get rid of Mohidin. How dare Mohidin said that when everyone of his stooges had agreed. Did you see the faces around him? All chicken. “Nobody dares” look on everyone’s face. And soon after Mohidin’s own state man, the stupid looking Minister of Higher Learning became the Champion to condemn Mohidin, in support of Si Bedul. Doesn’t Si Bedul feel how much the majority of us can’t just wait much longer for him to get lost from the premiership?

    SALAM AYAHANDA RAKYAT TUN,
    Izinkan,
    THE NEWS HEADLINES TONITE ‘ PAK LAH SHOCKED OVER TAN SRI MUHYIDDIN STATEMENTS’.
    WE SAY ITS HALF THE TRUTH!
    THE TRUTH IS, HE IS REALLY IN A SHOCKED STATE OF MIND THINKING OF THE POSSIBILITY OF A CHALLENGE TO HIS THRONE AND BEING DETHRONED SOONER THAN 2010.
    WITH THE IMPENDING RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF TENGKU AHMAD RITHAUDDIN TO VOID THE ‘QUOTA’ SYSTEM FOR CANDIDACY, THE ROUTE TO THE PUTRAJAYA LAKES LOOKS IMMINENT FOR AAB AND HIS KNIGHTS OF THE STONEHEADS!.
    SYABAS MUHYIDDIN, SYABAS TENGKU AHMAD RITHAUDDIN, SYABAS UMNO
    NOW WE CAN PROUDLY SAY DEMOCRACY IS VERY MUCH ALIVE IN UMNO!
    KEPADA PERWAKILAN KEPERIMPUNAN AGUNG KELAK, KAMI INGATKAN
    BUANG YANG KERUH DAN MULAI SEMULA DENGAN YANG JERNIH.
    MELAYU TAK HILANG DIDUNIA BUKAN DENDANGAN TETAPI LANDASAN PERJUANGAN.
    KINI BANGSA MU MULAI MENGANGKAT MUKA TIADA EJEKAN KATA HINA.
    ALFATIHAH, AMIN.

    Malay Dilema Again?
    If Malays are kept fighting in their own pool, it’s like palying Golf in A, B C Medal. They cannot play in open tournaments. The Malays pros today are like the others and want to have challenges of their own.
    There must be a new game today. I suggest those companies irrespective of Bumi or not that promote harmony, train more Bumis seriously be given more opportunities to for further growth.
    This way we can be proud of being Malaysians.

  171. kaa2121 Sep 11,2008 11:46 PM

    Tun,
    Now we, the Malays, are facing a situation where the minority wants to impose their will on the majority. They want to be dominant in politics, economy, culture and the list goes on.
    Its a pity that Dato’ Ahmad Ismail is being punished for stating the facts. It seems that under Pak Lah stewardship, if the non-malays want to challenge the status quo, its freedom of speech but if a Malay merely want to state the country’s history, its racist.
    Tun Yang Dikasihi,
    Kaum chauvinist dlm Gerakan & MCA lupa bahawa orang Melayulah yang mengundi mereka dalam semua pilihanra sebelum ni yang membawa mereka berkuasa. Pernah satu ketika di Penang ahli YB Melayu UMNO lebih ramai dari Gerakan, tapi jawatan Ketua Menteri tetap diberi pada mereka. Ini adalah toleransi orang Melayu. Tapi nampaknya apabila parti Melayu lemah, mereka begitu bersikap menekan terhadap Melayu. Adakah ini melambangkan sikap sebenar kaum Cina hanya merekalah yang boleh menjawabnya. Tapi yang saya tahu, saya tidak akan mengundi calon Cina dalam pilihanraya-pilihanraya akan datang tidak kira parti mana dia datang.

  172. pakbelalang Sep 11,2008 11:27 PM

    Dear Tun,
    Pak Lah kata peralihan kuasa jangan di persoalkan lagi.
    If this is the case, if really we want to see Pak Lah resign immediately, you have no choice but to give full support to Tengku Razaleigh for the Presidency post and Mahyuddin for the Deputy President post.
    Have a road show with Ku Li and Mahyuddin and convince the UMNO Divisions all over the country to nominate Ku Li and Mahyuddin.
    If you are not willing to be partner with Ku Li and Mahyuddin then you are fighting a losing battle.
    If both of them lose the battle then you have done your part to save UMNO. Lantak orang UMNOlah menentukan nasib mereka jika mereka masih nak berpaut dengan Pak Lah yang dah tempang tu!!

    Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 3 :: Hadith 56
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    While the Prophet was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, “When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?” Allah’s Apostle continued his talk, so some people said that Allah’s Apostle had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Alllah’s Apostle had not heard it. When the Prophet finished his speech, he said, “Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?” The Bedouin said, “I am here, O Allah’s Apostle .” Then the Prophet said, “When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday).” The Bedouin said, “How will that be lost?” The Prophet said, “When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour

    Salam Tun,
    Pemikiran Tun selalu melangkaui sempadan dan adakalanya saya mengambil masa untuk memahami setiap kata-kata Tun. Kini saya faham kenapa Tun sejak akhir-akhir ini, asyik membicarakan tentang Kontrak Sosial.
    Sekarang ni, rata-rata masyarakat bukan melayu sudah mula mendengus! Kenapa Tun? Apakah orang Melayu zalim sangat dengan mereka? Bagi saya, senang je, Tun….kalau tak puas hati, kalian semua boleh berambus! Tanah Melayu ini boleh maju tanpa engkorang! Jangan asyik nak melenting, tak puas hati tu, tak puas hati ni..itu tak betul, ini tak betul….apa yang engkorang nak? Apa, ada orang melayu rampas kekayaan korang? Rata-rata kaum lain yang merampas kekayaan yang ada pada bumi Malaysia….dan masih mempersoalkan sedikit keistimewaan yang ada pada kaum bumi! Cubo korang bukak mata dan lihat sekeliling…..sebanyak mana penguasaan ekonomi kaum yang selama ni beri muka kat korang!Mana zalimnya kami terhadap korang? What’s so great about u guys, when u first came here? The wealth u guys have is not brought from elsewhere, but from this country….and yet…no patriotism at all!
    Tun, semua ini berlaku sebab orang melayu tak kiasu macam depa!
    Harap Tun’s return will put back everything back in it’s place.
    Doa saya agar Tun sihat sejahtera….

    Hi Tun,
    I support some of what you have said here and not to provoke the situation but the social contract is what makes Malaysia a melting pot of variant opportunities,
    Our cultural diversity creates business diversity which makes it eye catching to the foreign investors, thus creates a better economic drive for all Malaysian’s no matte what race or creed.
    I m an Indian Malaysian but Catholic by religion, i have many Malay, Indian and Chinese friends,Living in this Malaysian envronment has made me realize that the social contract providesfor equality amongst racebut more importantly, it reminds us tha we are all just simpy human and are on the same playing field.
    What is very sad is that the Hard work of Tunku is now being made a chip to bargain in Politics, that just simply disgust me, no matter who does alike, the social contract is as important to Malaysia s the Declaration of Independance is to the American people,
    All i have seen in the last 3 years is a gross decay of understanding between the various races due to the various political parties using race based politics to devide the rakyat. this really has to stop.
    t is clearly understood by all Malaysian’s that the Maays race is the countries founding race and because of thier initiative to suffer for us to be free of british rule, the malays race is accorded certain benefits, which i feel is more then justified as because the rest of us were nor really part of that struggle.
    For me personally, i applaud the governments efforts from before to recognize the contribution of this single race and provide them a helping hand, as for the chinese and idians and rest, we were merey around when all this happened and by and act of a briliant man (Tunku) we were given the privillege of citizenship..
    But somehow in the past years, we as a people have forgotten our place in Malaysia’s social structure and we have become animals eating our own for political or financial advancement..
    I believe that not even you can save this country from the future is is set to reach if there is no change in MENTALITY IN GOVERNMENT and POLITICIANS. No man is an island thus no single race is a country by its self, the world is multi cultural,multi racial and with the change of times must come the change of mentality.
    So POLITICIANS – and all MALAYSIA’S should stop race based agenda’s for personal gain and think as a nation, we are all Malaysians and our race,religion or social standing does not dictate who we are as a person and who we can be as part of a nation..
    I wish you a blessed fastig month and the same of all mulim’s i Malaysia with due respect

    Dear jeff hamaz
    Sesungguhnya Saudara adalah seorang rakyat Malaysia yang Jati.
    Tidak ada seorang pun ahli politik yang berfikiran matang seperti saudara ini…and I respect you as a truly Malay of Malaysian.
    Sememangnya tidak ada gunanya ahli politik ataupun sesiapa berbicara tentang “NEP” ataupun “Kontrak Sosial”. Sebabnya segala itu hanyalah “teori” semata-mata dan sebenarnya perlaksanaan tidak serupa macam dengan yang tertulis secara teori…
    …Sebagai seorang rakyat yg berbangsa Cina, saya setuju dengan NEP tetapi malangnya saya tidak berapa setuju dengan orang yang melaksanakannya selama ini (oops sorry, I’m getting myself too closed to politicking). Why cronies?, Why many still poor? We can’t blame the rich, they too are human and they need to survive and they work hard for their own good but the Authorities (Government) must help the poor. Please help them follow the real NEP. Go ahead even though another 50 years or more with NEP but please help really the weak or the poor ones.
    Yang penting secara pratikalnya keharmonian rakyat adalah penting dari segala-galanya. Jika negara aman dan damai setiap rakyat tidak kira kaum akan dapat menikmati kemakmuran bersama.
    Apa gunanya saling tuduh menuduh? Kita bukannya ahli politik.
    Ancaman ekonomi negara terbesar sekarang bukannya datang dari Dalaman tetapi secara Luaran. Kalau ekonomi negara lemah, sesiapa saja boleh menakluki negara kita walaupun seorang individu seperti George Soros mampu menguasai Malaysia dari luar.
    Setiap Rakyat adalah Aset kepada sesebuah Negara. Kalaulah rakyat itu bernilai, maka aset negara itu tetap berharga jua.
    Why don’t we appreciate our own values – Malaysia Boleh??
    I think God will love Malaysia if we love ourselves and He will give another one good leader for us!

  180. WanJ Peraksi Sep 11,2008 10:45 PM

    SALAM TUN YANG DIKASIHI.
    1. Cadangan Tun untuk kembali keUMNO dan cadangan saya tempuhari kepada Tun amatlah dihargai sebagai Legend Tun harus kembali dan perbetulkan UMNO demi bangsa kita dan parti yang tengah kearah kejatuhan akibat salah urus oleh PM sekarang dan juak2nya terutama KJ dan Tingkat 4. Kehadiran Tun untuk kali ini amatlah diperlu, bukan kehendak Tun, tapi kehendak semua rakyat Malaysia amnya.
    2. Penganti Tan Sri Hassan Merican bukannya KJ tapi orang KJ tak silap Zulkifli atau pun Jamaluddin itu tak pasti, tapi bagi K.J (Kera Jantan Dari Rembau) tu dia akan memegang jawatan MD . Kalaulah jadi apa yang dia impikan ibarat Malaysia akan hancur akibat perbuatanya, mungkin sekarang tidak nampak kesannya tapi untuk generasi yang akan datang akan menanggumg akibatnya. SAYA MENYERU KEPADA KAUM BUMIPUTRA DAN BUKAN BUMIPUTRA DALAM BARISAN NASIONAL AGAR KELUARKANNYA DARI TINGKAT 4 DAN PARTI..KJ perasan yang dia adalah Best of The Best (orang perasan dan hidung tinggi) kekayaan dari GLC company sudah banyak dirampas, begitu juga syarikat barunya dalam HaB Halal, ECM Libra, Chque clearing,project AP dengan Ketua Bahagian dan Bendahari UMNO Kota Bharu atas nama Premier Hybrid , dan juga bersama Proxynya Azeez Keling Putra dan banyak lagi yang saya tidak dapat tuliskan.
    3.Peralihan Kuasa Jun 2010, itulah set date yang telah Pak Le….lah katakan, ini buka apa cuma bagi lebih masa untuk Pak Le…lah menambahkan, mengikis harta Negara Malaysia untuk dibahagikan kepada kroninya. Yang saya terkejut ialah Orang yang ada dibelakang PAVILION SHOPPING COMPLEX ialah Anak Tiri Pak Le….lah , tulong BPR tengok2.
    4. Statement Tan Sri Muhyuddin Yasin diSingapore agar peralihan Kuasa dipendekan amatlah wajar dan ahli MKT UMNO dan Barisan Nasional patut dipandang serius dan act, sejarah Tan Sri Muhyuddin, dia dinaikkan oleh Tun dan juga walaupun banyak kes diJohor semasa meperentahan dulu kita boleh tutupkan, dia juga banyak berjasa kepada Tan Sri Syed Mohtar dari seorang taukeh lembu kepada taukeh air, pelabuhan,bank,hartanah,hotel dan lain walaupun dulu Tan Sri Syed Mohtar mempunyai rekod burok diTailand dan Kedah, begitu juga Tan Sri Abu Juling (Maju Holding) dari seorang pencuci kereta alahyarham Tan Sri Ninam Shah kepada taukeh lori,besi,hartanah dan Club Latin itulah jasa Tan Sri Muhyuddin kepada mereka berdua. Oarang Johr amat marah kepadanya……pasal habis tanah diberi kepada Abu Juling, dan Syed Mohtar. fikir2lah…..
    5. Untuk merampas kembali Kelantan dari Pas, senang saja lantikkan Tg. Razaleigh Hamzah sebagai PM dan Tan Sri Muhyuddin sebagi TPM, insaallah Kelantan dapat dirampas kembali percayalah, jasa Tg. Tan Sri Rezaleigh banyak semasa beliau memenggang jawatan Menteri Kewangan,Pengerusi Petronas, Pengerusi BBMB, jasanya banyak kepada orang Melayu terutama AP King.
    6. Sekiranya kehadiran Tun kali ini dalam UMNO, insaallah suasana akan bertukar begitu juga Share Market akan naik, kembalilah Tun, isilah borang cepat2 tak payah malu.
    7. Maruah Tun amatlah tinggi, saya sedih apabila melihat gambar Tun duduk semeja dengan KDYMM Agung, Pak Le…lah, Najib ,kedukkan tak kena sepatutnya Tun duduk sebelah Agung, Najib disebelah Pak Le….lah itu baru betul dan saya nampak Pak Le…lah semacam kurang ajar muka masam dan tak ada kecerian mungkin akibat DS June ada diChina kok…..sabar Tun.
    Wahai penulis blog Tun, buatlah sesuatu yang lebih keras agar Pak Le….lah berundur.
    Salam Tun.

  181. Buyong Sep 11,2008 10:32 PM

    Tun,
    Izinkan saya memberi pandangan di sini:
    1. Perlembaggan negara tidak boleh dibincang dan dipersoalkan. Siapa nak memandai, tangkap!!
    2. Tun jangan le masuk Umno balik selagi Dolah meroyan masih jadi presiden. Malu!!! sebab dulu dah bagi syarat hehe.
    3. Saya sokong Tun untuk buat roadshow kempen untuk Kuli sebagai Presiden Umno…Yang ni , kita buat besar-besaran. Tun tak yah masuk umno pun boleh jadi penyokong utama……apa salahnya? Kita punya suka lah!!!
    3. Bila Kuli dah jadi presiden, barulah Tun masuk Umno.
    Baru le cantik sikit jalan ceritanya.

  182. JEBAT-GB Sep 11,2008 10:32 PM

    Dear Tun,
    Ramai orang keliru dengan konsep ” pendatang” dan kontrak sosial. Sungguh sensitif sampaikan Gerakan dan seangkatannya pun tak mau faham dan dengar sekalipun perkataan tersebut. Akhirnya buat tuntutan yang bukan2. Malangnya generasi baru hasil dari penekanan ilmu sejarah yang lemah turut buta dalam isu tersebut. Rasanya isu Ahmad Ismail bukanlah sensitif sangat kalau dibandingkan dengan tuntutan dan perbincangan berkaitan Islam, hak melayu, sultan dsbnya.
    Hairan sungguh dengan sikap puak PAS dan PKR yang diam seribu bahasa!!! Adakah anda boleh diharapkan untuk membela nasib Melayu dan Islam…sampai sekarang anda GAGAL…
    Fikirlah sendiri orang2 Melayu..

  183. nookvillage Sep 11,2008 10:29 PM

    Tun,
    You have given the people a new hope by rejoining UMNO.Thank you for an honest decision.We are looking forward to the new chapter.

  184. milshah Sep 11,2008 10:27 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Hearing this new development is very worrying. The statement made does show educated people made these statements. I say this because that is what we learn in basic 101 contract law back in university days.
    When a contract is declared void, through mutual agreement by both the affected parties, then any benefits obtained by both parties through that contract must be given back.
    For example, A sells a house to B for RM100,000 on the condition that A be given a room inside the house. Over the years, both A and B does not agree to the conditions of the contract, and both agreed that this contact be declared void.
    So in this example, since the contract is declared void by mutual agreement, B has to return the house back to A and A has to return the RM100,000 back to B.
    Ah, the nostalgia of university days…
    I do agree with Tun the social contract needs to be maintained.
    There are so many ways for the rakyat’s voice to be heard. The last general election, the permatang pauh by-election, talking to the man on the street, etc, etc.
    Everyone heard it, but no many wants to listen.
    If we look at our neighboring countries, the people their prefer to do demonstrations to let their voice be heard. For example, in the Philipines, President Estrada was ousted through demonstrations or “People Power” as they called it there.
    However, no sooner then Presiden Arroyo was installed as President, she too was subject by the same treatment of mass protest demonstrations.
    Thus lies the real problem, “those who kill by the sword, shall die by the sword”.
    She has set a precedence when President Estrada was ousted by the demonstrations.
    The same could be said of Thailand and Indonesia.
    The majority of the rakyat in Malaysia still prefer to let their voices heard through the ballot box. It does have its advantages and disadvantages.
    Tun, I heard you are joining back UMNO?
    I would just like to inform you that it has not been easy for me to join as an UMNO member.
    I have tried twice to join UMNO, and even paid the RM2 to be a member.
    Until today I am not a member. I lost RM4.
    If you are in UMNO, one of the things I suggest is to make the UMNO membership more accessible. It may not need the approval of the cawangan or division head. Maybe an online membership?
    Entry to become members is hard as they need approval from the cawangan/bahagian head. I may not be a yesman. I do not have connections to UMNO leaders in my area. Its difficult for me to be a member.
    So, when UMNO have a shortage of capable leaders, I think UMNO leaders have only to look at themselves to improve the situation.
    Maybe it needs new blood or a blood transfusion to rejuvenate it. Anyway, more members means money politics will be much harder as more money will be needed.
    Once membership is more accessable, you can post it in your blog that one way for the rakyat’s voice to be heard is to join UMNO. Invite the commentors and the bloggers.
    Those who believe in the true struggle of UMNO and Tun should be responsible enough to join.

  185. babwahid Sep 11,2008 10:27 PM

    Salam Tun
    I wish not to make any comment on this article about social conract.
    But it seem the issue was getting hot to the public , and everybody seem interested to release their view openly. I dont want to touch on Ahmad Ismail case, Let it be due to racial aspect , although its heart me in person action taken by Umno Supreme council recently But I m admired to Tan Sri Muhyiddin when he making a statement in Singapore asking Pak Lah to speed up his retirement before 2010. So unbelievale as one of the senior leader like him come out so bravely . Meaning to say , All this while Muhyidden was also in your side. Wanted Pak Lah to step down immediately. And Nasional news paper today also quote certain Umno leaders welcome back Tun in Umno . So what else next,the message is clear for Pak Lah itself . Harap Pak Lah turunlah secara terhormat …Tak guna duduk atas sebagai Perdana Menteri Kalu kiri kanan orang kuat Pak lah dah tunjukkan mesej mau Pak Lah turun.
    wallahualam ….

  186. pakbelalang Sep 11,2008 10:20 PM

    Dear Tun,
    Nampaknya Pak Lah berpaut dan bergantung sangat dengan janji ahli-ahli Majlis Tertinggi supaya beliau kekal menjadi Presiden sampai tahun 2010 tanpa pertandingan.
    Katanya dia masih banyak lagi perkara yang hendak diselesaikan sebelum berundur.
    Sudahlah Pak Lah, penyelesaian yang terbaik untuk Pak Lah ialah letak jawatan. Pak Lah tidak mampu membuat sesuatu pun yang boleh mengembalikan kepercayaan rakyat terhadap pimpinannya yang begitu lemah, haprak dan HP6.
    Pak Lah masih tidak sedar lagi.

    PM Terkejut Kenyataan Muhyiddin
    PUTRAJAYA 11 Sept. – Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi hari ini terkejut dengan tindakan Menteri Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin mempersoalkan tarikh peralihan kuasa pucuk pimpinan tertinggi negara yang telah dipersetujui akan diadakan pada 2010.
    “Saya terkejut kerana dia adalah sebahagian daripada ahli Kabinet saya,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Majlis Pelaksana Koridor Raya Multimedia (MSC) Malaysia di sini hari ini.
    Semalam, Muhyiddin dilaporkan menggesa Abdullah supaya memikirkan semula tarikh peralihan kuasa yang dijadualkan pada 2010 kerana tempoh tersebut terlalu lama.
    Muhyiddin mendakwa, pelan peralihan yang telah diumumkan dua bulan lalu itu kini telah `tenggelam’ dan rakyat tidak lagi memikirkan mengenainya. – Utusan
    apa yang lebih mengejutkan kita ialah beliau tak peka perkembangan semasa, bahawa rakyat telah menolaknya secara total, bahawa rakyat telah semakin hilang kepercayaan kepada Barisan Nasional, dan yang paling teruk sekali adalah asas kepada segala permasalahan yang berlaku sekarang ini adalah kerana DIRINYA SENDIRI

  190. equality Sep 11,2008 10:04 PM

    Tun,
    Time to move on. We are now in a different era. Although history is important, we do longer live in the past. History is a lesson learnt, not the era that we should hold on to.
    Law should not be interpreted as how you wish it to be. Otherwise, there’s no values in having a Constitution.
    The importance of race is something in the past when communal living is the key to survive.
    In modern era when knowledge and ability to compete is the power, why do you want to pull everyone back into the past era?
    To be able to change, will increase our chance to survive. Without this ability, we Malay will perish as we can’t keep up with the changes in the world.
    We must stop ‘living in an unreal illusion’ created by our own interpretation disguised in our so-called policies.
    Stop playing the racial card.

  191. michaelooi Sep 11,2008 9:58 PM

    Dear Tun,
    This afternoon, me and my malay kampong friends, were in our usual “agruments” whenever we discuss politics. Agruments seems to bring out the true feeling of oneself and I like it – especially being simple kampong people.
    They seems to think that Ahmad Ismail’s “acting” is part of DSAI’s “GAME PLAN”. Getting the Chinese mad with UMNO’s leaders(especially in Penang State) thence favouring PKR even more!
    And that Ahmad Ismail is now PKR in UMNO’s clothing! They are sure he must have a bigger carrot offered by DSAI.
    What more now out of UNMO now and PKR in 3 years.
    Interesting isn’t it?

  192. TG PUTERI Sep 11,2008 9:51 PM

    Come on, the immigrants from China & India more than 51 years ago are not the problem we are facing now, but it is the current Chinese in China & Indians in India. We are very much engrossed in looking back that we forgotten to look ahead. Many people have predicted the economy superpower of the 21st century belongs to China & India. Here we are, still fighting on the history while the leadership of our neighbour country is looking ahead, cracking their minds how to steer the country to remain competitive.

  193. kucau Sep 11,2008 9:50 PM

    quote lextcs
    “But i think we the non malays have ourselves to blame not because someone calls us ‘pendatang’ but we have failed to shake off the immigrant spirit in our hearts. Look at the way we send our children overseas for further studies thereafter encouraging them never to come back, look at the way we repartriate finances abroad, look at the way we produce our offsprings, look at the way we take participation in social forums (such as ibu bapa associations) and the list goes on and on. We have failed to take up patriotism to the fullest”
    Im relieved with a positive remarks by a malaysian chinese like u but sadly you are only a minority opinion.

    My Dear TDM
    WELCOME BACK TUN
    We are happy that Tun has decided to re-join UMNO after 3 months of absence. Now we can expect a fresher air circulating in the party and BN coalitions and particularly the nation. Changes are imminent and evitable. I have every confidence that you will advise and guide your party and the coalitions wisely and make changes in the country. Correct the wrong from the past to the present. Our apology for having to drag you back but in dire needs, the rakyat have no choice. We thank and love you for your very concern for our nation and we pray for your good health and hope you will still activate your blog and leave it open for the rakyat to voice their thoughts without fear.
    God bless you always.

    Hello All,
    I just couldn’t understand what’s the big deal of giving citizenship to the Chinese or Indian or whoever. Why other country like US or UK can give citizenship to Muslim and other races and at the same time treat them equally as citizen while Malaysia political party always like to raise this racial issue all the time to achieve political milestone?
    US even nominate a black as their presidential candidate. Any problem with that? As long as he/she can bring development to the country why not? No wonder the elite Malay can’t even stand the way government handle the issues and migrate elsewhere to UK etc.
    In fact, we are seeing to many professional migrating elsewhere contributing to the development of other country and yet we do nothing about it. We labeled them “not patriotic” etc.
    We need to be open minded and stop raising the social contract or racial issue. Be bold and be strong then only we can grow. The result of the NEP is a solid prove that it does not work. You only make the other races not benefited from the NEP tougher and stronger. At the same time those rely on the NEP are getting weaker, this is human nature. Why work so hard if I can get what I want easily? This has weaken instead of strengthen the Malay.

    Assalamualaikum ayahanda Tun yang dikasihi.
    Sekadar pandangan yg lahir dari hati saya sendiri, inilah juga yang saya pernah sampaikan kepada kalangan pekerja yg dibawah kendalian saya walaupun semasa saya di sabah atau di semenanjung.Perkara ini adalah berkaitan rumpun melayu, tanah melayu, nusantara melayu, kepulauan melayu dll.
    Rumpun melayu yang saya fahami berada dipersekitaran filipina, indonesia, indocina, selatan thailand, malaysia dan singapura. Kaum yg hidup dalam lingkungan ini adalah kaum melayu. Didalamnya terdapat pelbagai suku. Suku Jawa, bugis, minang, bajau, banjar, pattani, moro, bajau, dan beberapa suku2 di sabah, serawak, brunei dan indonesia dan melayu sendiri. Selain itu percampuran suku-suku ini yang telah hilang identiti sukunya diringkaskan adalah melayu berdasarkan persamaan bahasa, warna kulit, fizikal dll. Jika kita melihat melayu ini dalam skop yang luas, bandingkan dgn bangsa2 lain di dunia. Bangsa melayu ini begitu kerdil sekali. Jumlah kita adalah sedikit sebenarnya, geografi kita juga tak seluas mana. Bila wujudnya semangat kesukuan akan bertambahlah kerdilnya suku itu dalam kewujudan pelbagai bangsa didunia ini. Itu suku, jika dlm kontek malaysia pula ada orang kelantan, trengganu, melaka dan lain-lain, Jika kita terikat dgn semangat kenegerian ini juga taklah besar mana negeri kita ini dibanding negeri2 lain didunia. Sekarang ini pula telah ujud melayu umno, pas, keadilan, dap (pun ada)dll. Juga ada melayu paklah, najib, muhyidin, anwar, nik aziz dll. Akhir sekali ada melayu kroni, anak, menantu dll.
    Kesimpulannya jika tidak meletakkan individu yg betul pada tempatnya terlalu taksub dgn semua yg saya nyatakan diatas tadi maka hilanglah kekuatan kita. Jika kita kuat tidak juga kita merampas hak orang-rang lain. Tapi jika kita lemah boleh jadi hak kita akan hilang. Sekali lagi marilah kita bersatu, bila kita bersatu, kita juga perlu hidup harmoni seperti dahulu tanpa adanya tindakan yang membangkitkan mana2 isu. Maaf jika saya melalut… mungkin pandangan saya ini tidak tepat.

    Salam Tun,
    Saya rujuk komen Pak Ali (September 11, 2008 10:11 AM).
    Pada pendapat saya, Pak Ali dengan sengaja membangkitkan isu “diskriminasi” dalam sektor swasta tanpa menyentuh isu yang sama dalam sektor kerajaan. Sebenarnya, diskriminasi dalam sektor kerajaan terhadap orang bukan Melayu berleluasa. Inilah sebabnya orang bukan Melayu secara amnya jarang-jarang menyertai sektor kerajaan, kerana mereka menganggap bahawa peluang kerjaya mereka terhad. Sebaliknya, semua syarikat swasta baik milik Melayu, Cina mahupun India mengutamakan keuntungan, manakala sektor kerajaan tidak. Maka sektor swasta mengutamakan produktiviti. Tidak masuk akal sekiranya dalam sektor swasta, yang berkebolehan dipinggirkan manakala yang tidak berkeupayaan dinaikkan pangkat sedangkan syarikat tersebut menanggung kerugian. Rasanya ada sebabnya Pak Ali terasa ada “diskriminasi” dalam sektor swasta. Semoga Pak Ali mempertimbangkan kebolehan diri sebelum melontar tuduhan terhadap orang lain.
    Yang saya nak tanya kepada Pak Ali, adakah semua orang Cina di Malaysia kaya-raya belaka tanpa usaha? Rasanya Pak Ali tidak bergaul dengan kaum-kaum yang lain untuk memahami situasi yang sebenar. Saya berketurunan Cina. Keluarga saya sendiri bukannya kaya. Saya berasal dari perkampungan yang tidak dibekali air dan elektrik sehingga tahun 1993. Ibu saya menggunakan air hujan dan air sungai sahaja untuk memasak dan memandikan anak. Dulu saya belajar pada waktu malam dengan menggunakan kuasa elektrik yang dijana dengan generator yang menggunakan disel sebagai bahan api. Kuasa elektrik yang dijana hanya mencukupi untuk menampung penggunaan selama 3 jam sehari. Jalan di perkampungan saya sekarang pun (tahun 2008) jalan pasir sahaja yang berlubang di sana sini. Tetapi hari ini saya sudah berpendidikan sampai ke tahap siswazah. Ini semuanya kerana titik peluh ibu bapa saya untuk memajukan anak-anak mereka. Saya sendiri pun belajar bersungguh-sungguh juga. Namum, Dasar Ekonomi Baru (DEB) telah banyak menyusahkan ibu bapa saya dalam usaha mereka untuk menyara hidup sementara turut memberikan pendidikan yang terbaik kepada anak mereka. Pada zaman kini juga, terdapat banyak lagi keluarga yang mengalami kesusahan yang pernah dialami oleh ibu bapa saya dalam usaha mereka untuk membesarkan anak, baik Melayu, Cina mahupun India. Kesengsaraan mereka sama sahaja, tetapi kenapa sikap kerajaan terhadap mereka berbeza bergantung kepada kaum? Kenapa pula orang Melayu yang kaya-raya turut menikmati bantuan kerajaan yang tidak diperlukan oleh mereka sama sekali? Apabila anak-anak orang Cina dihantar oleh ibu bapa mereka untuk belajar di pusat pengajian tinggi swasta atau di luar negara, ibu bapa mereka dikatakan kaya-raya. Hakikatnya, pusat mengajian tinggi am di negara ini tidak sanggup menerima anak mereka kerana “kuota kaum sudah penuh”. Ibu bapa mereka terpaksa menjual rumah, kedai ataupun tanah untuk membiayai kos pelajaran anak. Adakah Pak Ali memahami situasi ini?
    Kepada Pak Ali dan sesiapa yang bersependapat,
    Cubalah saudara membaca komen-komen yang terpapar di ruangan chedet.com ini. Kebanyakan orang Melayu berkecoh hendakkan DEB dilaksanakan selama-lamanya, kerana ini dianggap “hak orang Melayu di tanah milik orang Melayu”. Ini hujah mereka (hujah saudara juga). Memang orang Cina di Malaysia menguasai ekonomi negara ini. Jika dijangkau di Singapura, Hong Kong, Taiwan ataupun China sejak kebelakangan ini, orang Cina memang handal berniaga. Tetapi, persoalannya, adakah orang Melayu yang dikatakan “ditindas” pernah membangkitkan perlunya mereka mempelajari kemahiran orang Cina dari segi ekonomi untuk membolehkan mereka bersaing? Hakikatnya, kalau tidak bersaing dengan kaum Cina pun, mereka perlu bersaing dengan bangsa lain juga. Ini hakikat yang tidak boleh dielak. Tetapi adakah mereka bersedia untuk bersaing ataupun terus disuap sahaja? Tidak ada satu komen pun yang ada di blog chedet.com ini yang menunjukkan wujudnya kesedaran ini di kalangan orang Melayu. Sebaliknya, mereka menuntut agar bantuan kerajaan diberikan selama-lamanya. Dari manakah agaknya kerajaan hendak mendapatkan sumber kewangan untuk disumbangkan kalau pembangunan ekonomi negara tersekat dengan perlaksanaan polisi ekonomi yang tidak seimbang seperti DEB? Bukan itu sahaja, bantuan itu disalahanggap sebagai “hak istimewa orang Melayu yang termaktub dalam Perlembagaan”. Kaum-kaum lain dianggap tidak berhak menuntutnya kerana mereka sudahpun maju.
    Saya tidak menafikan bahawa bantuan perlu diberikan kepada mereka yang memerlukannya, tetapi saya berpendapat bahawa polisi berkenaan tidak harus dilaksanakan berdasarkan prinsip perkauman. Saya berpendapat bahawa semua rakyat Malaysia harus diberikan layanan yang sama tanpa mengira warna kulit. Saya kini belajar di luar negara. Kos pengajian saya dibiayai oleh sumbangan biasiswa yang diberikan oleh pihak universiti di luar negara. Saya ingin memaklumkan saudara Pak Ali bahawa orang ramai di negara ini tidak melayan saya dengan teruk, sehingga biasiswa pun sanggup ditawarkan oleh mereka dengan percuma. Isu “ketuanan” ataupun “pendatang” tidak dibangkitkan. Sebaliknya, walaupun saya dilahirkan di Malaysia seperti nenek moyang saya juga, ada juga pemimpin masyarakat yang memanggil saya “pendatang”. Diskriminasi berasaskan kaum tidak diamalkan oleh pentadbir negara ini, malah adalah salah di sisi undang-undang. Bantuan yang diberikan kepada mereka yang perlu kebanyakannya berbentuk “outreach projects”. Bantuan tersebut diberikan berdasarkan keperluan, bukannya warna kulit. Ini lebih masuk akal bagi saya.
    Yang saya harapkan untuk negara saya ialah pembangunan bukan sahaja dari segi infrastruktur tetapi mentaliti rakyatnya, kerana bagi saya, mentaliti sesetengah rakyat Malaysia yang tertutup sebenarnya menjadikan keadaan begitu kompleks sekali. Selagi kita tidak sanggup membutakan mata terhadap warna kulit masing-masing, maka tidak mampulah kita maju. Selagi polisi yang ada menyekat kemajuan golongan yang sanggup memajukan masyarakat maka tersekatlah kemajuan kita. Jangan berkali-kali membandingkan negara kita dengan Vietnam, Zimbabwe ataupun Korea Utara. Jika setakat itu sahaja aspirasi kita maka janganlah kita berhujahkan kemajuan.
    Sekian.

    Salam Tun,
    Sebenarnya kaum-kaum Cina dan India harus berterima kasih kerana diberi peluang untuk tinggal di bumi Malaysia dan menjadi rakyat melalui Social Contract. Cuba fikirkan, adakah mereka akan dilayan dan diberi peluang sehingga menjadi MP dalam parlimen dalam jumlah yang banyak jika mereka tinggal di United States, Britain dan Australia? Lupakan lah, negara-negara ini akan melayan mereka dengan lebih teruk, tetapi mereka masih tidak berterimakasih dan meminta hak yang lebih-lebih. Tak cukup lagikah dengan monopoli mereka dalam ekonomi, mempunyai kereta-kereta mewah, bungalow dan kondo mewah berbanding kaum Melayu yang baru hendak belajar untuk maju? Tidak cukup dengan itu semua, mereka juga mengambil peluang untuk membeli tanah dan kondo yang dikhaskan untuk Bumiputra dengan mengunakan nama orang Melayu. Lesen-lesen teksi yang berdaftarkan nama Melayu banyak dimiliki oleh orang Cina sebenarnya, all these is public knowledge! Pekerja-pekerja Melayu yang berkerja di Syarikat swasta yang dimiliki orang Cina banyak jadi mangsa diskriminasi dari segi peluang naik pangkat, kadar kenaikan gaji dan bonus. Semua ini memang berleluasa, tapi tidak apa sebab itu hak mereka sebagai pemilik syarikat.
    Tetapi, bila mereka menekan untuk menghapus hak kaum Melayu, itu sudah melampau! Tidak cukup lagi kah Guan Eng memerintah Pulau Pinang, masih nak impikan menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia. Perak sekarang walaupun di terajui oleh wakil PAS tapi di control oleh DAP, bahasa dan lenggok percakapan pun macam DAP sekarang. PAS should be ashamed of themselves!
    These people remind me of a prasite plant that leaves on a big tree, they will eventually outgrown and kill their host if not controlled properly.

    Sila bertanya secara serius, adakah kesemua rakyat bukan Melayu tidak bersyukur dan tidak menghayati apa yang dikongsikan di tanah air kita selama 51 tahun merdeka ini?
    TIDAK!Saya sebagai seorang rakyat berbangsa Cina yang dilahir dan dididik di bawah bumbung yang sama ini MENAFIKAN sepenuh-penuhnya fikiran dan pandangan tersebut.
    Kejayaan seseorang rakyat Bukan berbangsa Cina banyak bergantung kepada usaha yang gigih dan sifat kekentalan yang tertanam dalam hati kita. Maklumlah bahawa kami dipandang hina oleh sebahagian rakyat Melayu (mujur, dan bersyukur bukannya semua) sebagai rakyat kelas dua di tanah air ini, oleh itulah kami terpaksa bertungkus-lumus untuk mempertahankan maruah kami di bumi Malaysia ini.
    Sekiranya masyarakat Melayu masih berfikiran cetek dan enggan bangun dari segi intelektual dan sifat kerajinan yang perlu ada dengan hanya bergantung kpd segala keistimewaan yang disumbang oleh
    Kerajaan, maka tumbanglah suatu hari Masyarakat Melayu di mata dunia.SILA HENTIKAN DIRI ANDA DARIPADA MENYALAHI MASYARAKAT BANGSA LAIN ATAS KEKALAHAN DIRI SENDIRI. BERTAUBATLAH BETUL-BETUL; Adakah Tuhan itu mewujudkan manusia berbagai kulit dan bangsa untuk berkelahi sesama sendiri di atas tanahair sendiri??????

  202. rarunasalam Sep 11,2008 9:12 PM

    Co-Blog respondents
    lets put a few things on the table and in perspective.
    1/ When I was born, I was issued a Malaysian Birth Certificate.
    this was my first official document and it tagged me Malaysian.
    However there was a column titled Bangsa – India (now in reflection, that was an incorrect label and if then, my parents had the wisdom they have now, they would have refused to state anything other than Malaysian.
    2/ I then attended school, issued examination cards and other identification devices all requiring me to identify my Bangsa – again and again I was ‘forced’ to fill this as India, not Malaysian.
    This included my IC- Kad Pengenalan at 12, then 18 years, and the insistince I had to fill the Bangsa column as India, not any other value else I could not proceed with getting these legal instruments.
    But I wish, I had stood my ground and stated – I am a Malaysian, true and true. By indicating India, this is both incorrect and legally, I have been forced to provide false information. How can I say I am Indian? I was not born in India, not issued Indian Citizenship, not granted Indian citizen rights, so what makes me Indian. My facial features? My color? Then what about all my Malay friends who have one parent who is of this feature – are they to be tagged ‘India’ instead of ‘Melayu’ because of this ethnic feature?
    3/ I lived in my birth land accepting that I will not receive the same rights and treatment as my Malay bretheren, and felt honored to be part of our great land. Note, even then I call it our. The feeling of ownership in my hearts of hearts is I am Malaysian, true and true. But our forefathers who segregated us on basis of ethnic majority did not calculate that one day, Malaysians at large will end up arguing about rights and priveleges on basis of ethnicity, forgetting they have only one nationality – MALAYSIAN!
    4/ I’ve resigned to the fact I will not receive the same rights till the day I die, but I hope that during my children’s time or their children’s time, the question of nationality will be on the basis of citizenship NOT ethnicity. Once this basic element is in place, I believe the current discrimination of ethnicity will cease to exist as every Malaysian will be counted for, not further sub-categorised.
    5/ To my Malay bretheren – don’t think I want your riches, property, stake to your claims etc etc. Far from it, I want respect and equality and to be counted truly as a Malaysian. I want for you to expect every Malaysian to be treated fair and without prejudice. I want for equality only on the grounds it means no one person has to wear sacrifice for the benefit of the other.
    And I am happy to wait for the day where the majority of Malaysians want that very same desire to treat one another with respect and dignity, without fear or favour, using one measure.
    6/ Final comment outside this topic: To all Malaysians – please abide by the PM’s instructions. He is asking for your cooperation, so give him due respect – dont’ cause unnecessary and unwanted rifts. We are all one bretheren. Peace and harmony is the basis of our Malaysian life. Dont’ get greedy. Don’t get angry. If you have to state your points of view, do it responsibly. Freedom of speech while is a right in our constitution, requires us to use it with respect. Don’t get upset with the Government if they restrict this right on the basis it continues to be used irresponsibly as some individuals have shown recently including TDM.
    The Government has an even more important tenet to ensure safety and national security is intact!
    (Ravi)

  203. Tauke Kedai Sep 11,2008 9:05 PM

    My Fellow Malaysians,
    Do not blame others for your weaknesses. Instead, strive and improve yourselves to get back on track. This country has gain so much success because we live and work together as Malaysians. The disparities amongst us are not caused entirely by the Goverment policies.
    The richest Malaysian is not even a Malay. If the Malays are really racists to the core, even this can be made a subject of a conflict.
    There is a saying in Malay that goes: ” Buat baik berpada pada. Buat jahat jangan sekali.” Try to understand the meaning of this saying. One more for you to think before you go to bed tonight: “Sudah bagi betis, dia nak peha pula”

  204. damndamndamn Sep 11,2008 9:03 PM

    Dear Tun
    I read this in RPK’s Malaysia Today dated 11 Sep 2008:
    // We must never allow our country to be turned into a racial battlefield again. Let politics be issues concerning policies, civil rights, good governance and justice. Let us not allow anyone to bring race and religion into our politics lest we suffer the fate of many countries around us where mass murders of entire families are made in the name of ‘bangsa’ and ‘agama’. //
    Well, I’m glad that RPK is sending out a timely strong reminder. Many people talk and write emotionally and without caring a damn about other people’s feelings. When things flare up, they blame others. But, they are too damn dumb or arrogant to admit that they are at fault too. I hope people will wake up to the fact that
    • When people are enraged, they can lose their self-control which makes them capable of inflicting violence.
    • We share this world with extremists – extremists in race, religion and whatnot. If we inflame them, they can cut us down or blow us up. Innocent bystanders can become their victims who may be our very own families.
    For people who don’t believe this, they should test it on a case of road rage. Try to enrage or inflame a mad driver and see the violent side of humankind.

    Saya telah lama menjadi peminat Tun, saya sungguh tak paham mengapa ada orang yang betul-betul bodoh hingga boleh bencikan Tun. Mengapakah orang-orang ni tak boleh berfikir.
    Kepada sesiapa yang baca comment saya ni tolonglah beritahu kat Pak Lah (Bapak Mertua Khairy) tu supaya blah lah.
    Malaysia jadi macam ni sebab Pak Lah (Bapak Pecah Belah). Sekarang blahla bagi orang lain pulak tak faham-faham lagi ke orang suma benci kau Pak Lah.
    Semoga dengan kemasukan Tun ke dalam UMNO akan menyelamatkan Melayu.

  206. pakpandir08 Sep 11,2008 8:43 PM

    kadang kala tergaruk-garuk kepala fikirkan apakah yg terjadi di malaysia ini …
    nampaknya tokoh politik suka mencetuskan persoalan tentang kaum bukan melayu mencabar kontrak sosial … terfikir-fikir ku apa yg dikatakan tentang aksi-aksi yg cuba mencabar … tapi tak faham-faham juga …
    (1) tengok IC, tunjukan aku warganegara malaysia, income tax bayar tepat masa, tak langgar undang-undang, tidak membuang sampah merata-rata juga -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (2) sejak kecil belajar to SRJKC, yg hanya mendapat 50% subsidi dari kerajaan. Dah biasa dengan bilik darjah yg sempit, masalah anai-anai, kekurangan meja kerusi dan hutang bil elektrik oleh pihak sekolah kerana tiada bantuan. Dalam keadaan ini lah, cikgu mengajari murid-murid kepentingan untuk menjimat cermat -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (3) setiap tahun baru persekolahan, SRJKC tidak mendapat bantuan sepenuh untuk buku teks. Keluarga yg miskin perlu memohon pinjaman buku teks. Sudah jadi kebiasaan murid-murid miskin membawa borang merata-rata untuk pengesahan dari ketua kampung dan pemimpin tempatan -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (4) setiap tahun bagi murid yg mendapat bantuan buku teks, gembira sangat dan membeli kertas bungkus untuk membungkuskan buku teks yg didapati. Gam juga diperlukan kerana memperbaiki helaian yg koyak. Dah jadi kebiasaan dimana buku teks dilakar dengan kartun-kartun atau helaian yg hilang, kerana bantuan buku teks ini digilir-gilirkan dari kelas yg habis peringkat setiap tahun -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (5) untuk menampung perbelanjaaan sekolah kerana tidak mendapat bantuan sepenuh kerajaan, setiap tahun murid-murid dipaksa membawa kad derma untuk meronda di kampung-kampung untuk mendapatkan derma. Budaya ini secara langsung melatih murid untuk megetahui kepentingan sifat jimat cermat -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (6) Ibu-bapa dah semakin uzur dan bekerja keras untuk menampung perbelanaan sekolah. Sakit hati nampak mereka dan ku bertekad untuk belajar bersungguh-sungguh untuk memberikan kehidupan yg lebih sempurna kelak. Dah jadi kebiasaan di kalangan murid untuk belajar hingga larut malam untuk mendapat skor yg tinggi dalam permirksaan. Air mata menitis di larut malam memandangkan anak-anak jiran telah tidur manis -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (7) Usaha selama ini membuahkan hasil, dan mendapat skor yg memuaskan dalam peperikasaan. Gembira dan lompat-lompat untuk memohon kemasukan ke universiti tempatan. Tak pernah ku bermain bola di padang kerana kebiasaannya SRJKC tiada ruang untuk pembinaan padang. Namun, kerana warna kulitku, ditolak untuk memasukki universiti tempatan. Mungkin benar seperti yg dikatakan ramai, warna kulitku yg menjadi unsur mengapa saya dapat skor dalam pemeriksaan .. -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (8) Kolej swasta perlukan perbelanjaan yg agak tinggi, dan ibu bapa tiada wang yg lebih untuk menampungnya. Nasib baik semasa menunggu result peperiksaan. Aku mendapat kerja sampingan … mungin engan kerja sampingan ini, yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (9) Selepas tamat persekolahan di kolej swasta tempatan, ingin mendapat kerja yg boleh membantu mengecapi cita-cita saya. Agensi kerajaan sudah secara umumnya diketahui tiada masa hadapan aku yang mempunyai warna kulit ini. Terpaksalah ku menceburi diri dalam sektor swasta. Manalah tahu penceburan diri ku di sektor swasta, seperti lain-lain yg mempuyai warna kulit yg sama, yg secara paksanya bekerja di swasta, dikecam memonopoli sektor swasta -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (10) Dengan budaya yg dialami semasa sekolah, aku terlatih dengan amalan menjimat cermat. Dengan ini, aku berjaya menumpulkan sebilangan wang untuk menceburkan diri dalam bidang perniagaan. Perniagaan ini susah nak dilaksanakan. Kontrak atau projek kerajaan tiada peluang langsung. Dengan itu lah terpaksa mengutamakan negara luar untuk perniagaan kecil saya … online bidding dan lain-lain … setiap hari kena kerja macam anjing … usaha ini mendapatkan hasil selepas beberapa tahun … namun usaha ini dikecam juga, dan nampaknya dikatakan kaum yg kulitnya berwarna semacam dengan saya, automatik akan jadi taukeh besar dalam perniagaan, dan automatik akan deberi modal untuk perniagaan dari tuhan … hmm .. fikir-fikir pun tak faham … -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    (11) Dengan usaha yg dilakukan sekian lama ini, dapat membawa kehidupan yg lebih sempurna untuk ibu-bapa yg uzur … tiada kemewahan tetapi sekurang-kurangnya tiada masalah kosong perut … tiba-tiba kawan ku datang memintakan diriku memberikan hasil usahaku sebanyak 30% kepadanya … ku enggan dan lebih rela sekiranya saya mengajarnya petua kejayaan saya dalam bekerja bersama-sama … malangnya dia mengamuk dan katakan ku dah dapat paha nak pulak betis … ku fikir-fikir pun tak faham apa salahnya … -> mungkin ini kelakuan yg dikatakan mencabar kontrak sosial
    wahai tun yg disayangi, amat berterima kasih kerana selama ini memberikan peluang untuk adinda mempelajari cara kehidupan dan petua kejayaan … kini barulah ku faham niat Tun yg ingin melihatkan ku menghadapi kesukaran kehidupan … barulah aku sedar bahawa sekiranya seseorang mahukan kejayaan, usaha itu diperlukan … dan sekira adanya suasana yg sukar, manuasia itu akan hidup lebih tabah …
    terima kasih Tun yg dikasihi … tetapi, berpusing-pusing kepala ku, mengapakah ku dikecam merompak hasil orang lain atau pun mencabar kontrak sosial … harap Tun yg dikasihi dapat memberi tunjuk ajar …
    terima kasih

    My Dear Tun
    After 51 years of Merdeka and the tremendous progress in this country..one wonders why is that the racial and social contract issues are now being brought to light? Frankly, none of these issues have surfaced in such bad taste previously and if at all, it’s only a tingle here and there. We have all learned to accept the Constitution and live peacefully in harmony. All that matters and concern to us are the progress of our country and that we and our generations to come, are all able to cari decent makan and live comfortably till our dying day. In this light of moment, is there a possibility that all these happenings and commotions are by political design to deviate and divert the rakyat’s attention to the real problem..our government and their governing. Is there someone behind the curtains tangling the puppet string? Whatever their plot is..I hope the rakyat will not fall prey and let Common Sense to prevail here. Syabas.

    see how arragont the chinese leaders have become….
    KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Bendera Umno division chief Datuk Ahmad Ismail’s three-year suspension is a lesson to all, that every Malaysian community’s right to citizenship cannot be questioned or challenged, MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting said yesterday.
    Ong said while Umno had proven its commitment to the Barisan Nasional supreme council by initiating serious discipline action against Ahmad, the MCA hoped that such racist actions will never again see the light of day.
    “The MCA would again like to remind all that every racial community’s right to Malaysian citizenship is sacred. We will not tolerate or forgive anyone who question this issue,” he said adding that the same rule applies for racially charged sentiments.
    “Umno crossed the line on this issue lately and we have taken them to task. Let this be a reminder to every political party that there is no double standard when it comes to this topic and the MCA will continue to safeguard this right within the Barisan Nasional.”
    Ong thanked all component parties, Chinese community leaders and the media for standing in solidarity on the issue, which resulted in quick action taken.
    On Penang MCA’s relationship with Umno Bukit Bendera division, Ong said that the boycott would only be removed if the division shows sincere repentance.

    I feel really ashamed of the Malays. First they create this thing called social contract in order to justify the continuation of Malay rights. They found it necessary to justify it because there is a time limit to it unlike the case of citizenship. Then suddenly they want to say there is no social contract — this time to deny the non-Malays of their right to citizenship.Both ways they want to be winners ?

    Dearest yang YBH TUN
    Thank you for this information. Tunku gave one million citizenships without any condition to the immigrants? It sound very simplistic to me. But then i alway think he was a simple man with very little vision for our country. And I still remember when these citizens gave him problems later on, he gave them an island to form a country of their own. What a dayus. I remember some one from this blog said Badawi is as good as or can be, as good as this Tunku. Good for what?
    I wonder what will happen if we give one million pendatang tanpa izin from neighbouring countries their citizenships. Some of them were born here. Do you think we should? For me, I think we should. after all most of our achievements so far are partly contributed through their blood sweat and tears. May be our progress towards vision 2020 can be more realistic.
    As always, May Allah bless you and your family

    1.Despite writing in point form and simple English, many of your readers still do not get your point.
    2.They assume that the alternative opinion rejecting the Social Contract by an emerging group of Malays are your own extreme views.
    3.They fail to see that you are only reporting a dangerous trend and warning of the risk to our fragile race relations as we allow this uncontrolled discussion on ‘sensitive’ issues to go on in the name of democracy and civil liberty.
    4. Those who read your article and surmised that it was your own opinion have come to such a conclusion because their own negative emotion and opinion of you have clouded their ability to understand your article.

    Tun,
    Apa pendapat Tun kalau kita bubarkan UMNO tp kita tubuhkan UMNO. Maksudnya kita tukarkan perkataan Malay dengan perkataan Muslim. Selepas tu buka keahlian kepada semua mualaf untuk menyertai UMNO. Lagipun skrg ni rupa paras org UMNO pun pelbagai, ada rupa arab, rupa china, rupa mamak dan rupa mat saleh. Isu rasis pun dah tak timbul kerana sudah jadi pertubuhan pelbagai bangsa tp masih mendukung agama Islam.

    TDM,
    Perkauman ini memang telah wujud sejak zaman Nabi lagi,tidak akan ada kesudahannya sehinggalah KIAMAT tiba.Ada di mana mana dan setiap masa dalam hidup manusia.
    Dalam kes Ahmad Ismail, yang rugi hanyalah parti UMNO terutama di Pulau Pinang dan orang melayu akan berdendam sesama sendiri. Walaupun ada yang menafikannya hakikatnya tidak sebegitu,hanya dendam tersimpan di hati.
    Fikirkan lah.

  218. hafizrohafizsabar Sep 11,2008 7:08 PM

    Selamat kembali ke UMNO. Kali ini, Tun kena cari pelapis sebijak macam Tun. Tun mempunyai nama besar dan pendirian yang kukuh. Satu dunia mengenali Tun. Kita mahu melihat Malaysia itu berkembang maju.
    Saya mengharapkan Tun terus menulis. Tun itu adalah aset negara. Samada melayu, cina dan india atau apa sahaja, kita berkongsi satu rasa. Iaitu menjadi Malaysian.

  219. peacemind Sep 11,2008 7:06 PM

    Good day to you Tun,
    I am impressed that you are still so energetic and wish to re join UMNO. Certainly I welcome you back and hope to kick this AAB out. However, your efford alone to solve Malaysia current situation isn’t enough. The root cause is the mindset of the leaders in UMNO, Gerakan, MIC, MCA and other parties. The way they run the country are totally horrible. They don’t even know what they doing. All they care is they themselves. When I think about it, it is not their fault to behave such way. It is we, all Malaysian. We are no better than others.
    So what if you can uphold Malay rights, so what if Ahmad can publicly apologize and so what if chinese and indian can successfully seek equality. Still we will be doom when come to globalization. Are we ready for this? Obviously not because we still fighting the same old issue over and over again for the pass 51 years. Can we progress like this. When all these political and racist issue solved, we will back to square one. By that time, I think Thailand would be like Singapore and we will still where we are today or worst.
    Peace of mind

    Saya rasa siti ni suka kat DSAI kot. Siti, tinggalkanlah amalan songsang ni.. sedap tak sedap tu tau lah, tapi amalan ni di laknat tuhan.. bertaubatlah siti.

    Askm Tun,
    Saya rasa social contract ini perlu diteruskan dan dipertahankan demi kesejahteraan orang-orang Islam dan Melayu. Tetapi malangnya pada hari ini, pemimpin-pemimpin Melayu tidak lagi pandai berhujah dan mempertahankan hak-hak mereka. Mereka menjadi lembik, lesu dan tidak bermaya. Dibuli oleh pihak lain. Yang saya nampak mereka lebih takut kehilangan kuasa, jawatan, pangkat daripada menyatakan dan mempertahankan sesuatu yang benar. Memang sudah maklum, kuasa datang dengan kemewahan dan kekayaan. Mungkin inilah sebabnya mereka menjadi dayus dalam mempertahankan hak orang Islam dan Melayu. Tiada lagi keiikhlasan dalam perjuangan melainkan untuk memenuhi nafsu menambah harta dan kedudukan. Semoga kita diganti dengan pemimpin yang ikhlas dan lebih baik dari mereka. Yang memperjuangkan kepentingan umat bukan isi perut masing-masing.

  222. HM Lim Sep 11,2008 6:41 PM

    Dear Tun,
    A good relationship should not be base on a social contract, rather it should be on voluntary basis, same go to your Friend, Family, Neighbour, Workplace & etc.
    The racial issue tension seem to be a drama play by various political party for personal gain, rather than play by the socialty as a whole, Do i have any problem with my friend, neighbour & college of different races ?
    My answer = No !
    I believe same go to majority Malaysian.
    Question : Is this the right time for Malaysian to become a true Malaysian regardless of race?
    Answer : It is the time for all of us to take that very first step.
    Salam Muhibah to Tun & Family

    Assalamualaikum TUN,
    Semoga Tun sekeluarga sihat Walafiat dan diRahmati Allah. Teruskan usaha Tun untuk menyedarkan kpd sebahagian besar rakyat yang tidak menghargai erti budi dan mengenang jasa.Tulisan dan kata-kata Tun byk memberi menafaat dan perangsang kpd diri saya selama ini. Ahli UMNO atau bukan, itu bukan menjadi persoalan. Buat apa jadi ahli parti sekiranya suara, ulasan membina dan kritikan tidak didengar.
    Sejarah telah membuktikan bahawa Kita telah mencapai kemerdekaan. Tetapi malangnya sebahagian rakyat cuba mengeruhkan air yang jernih dan mengalih pandangan negatif sejak Tsunami politik 2008 ini. Kenapa? Jawapannya ada di dalam diri sendiri sebagai rakyat yang bertamaddun dan merdeka.
    Bak kata pepatah “Pemimpim itu sendiri patut menilai dirinya sendiri. Bukan orang lain. Sekiranya ada kritikan, terima sahaja dan buat pembaharuan atau letak sahaja jawatan seperti mana Perdana Menteri Jepun”. Adakah berani DSAAB berbuat begitu?? Kita telah memberi cukup masa kpd DSAAB untuk membuktikan keadaan tetapi masih gagal. Perdana Menteri patut dipersalahkan dan dipertanggungjawabkan.
    Tun juga pernak dikritik semasa memerintah dahulu, dan byk pembaharuan telah dicapai hasil kata sepakat pemimpim politik. Jika tulisan dan kritikan Tun tidak lagi dibahaskan….siapalah saya yang kerdil dan lemah ini akan mendengar dan mencari penyelesaian oleh DSAAB lagi??
    Saya mendoakan agar tulisan-tulisan Tun seterusnya akan menjernihkan fikiran rakyat Malaysia yang telah “keruh” sekarang ini.

    Salam Tun
    Tahniah kerana berhasrat mahu sertai semula UMNO. Boleh dikatakan hampir 50% rakyat tak percaya kewibawaan kerajaan sekarang yang ditunjang Pak Lah. Setelah 5 tahun pemerintahan tidak banyak pencapaian yang boleh dibanggakan. Malah selama 5 tahun memerintah banyak kacau bilau yang berlaku. Inilah yang dinamakan demokrasi yang tiada sempadan, seperti yang di’agong’kan negara barat. Akibatnya bangsa melayu sendiri lemah kaku di negara tercinta. Apabila melayu sendiri hilang kawalan (pemerintahan) terhadap negara sendiri pastinya suatu hari nanti bangsa Melayu akan pupus dari bumi Malaysia seperti yang terjadi pada Singapura yang kebanyakkannya merempat ke negara orang. Saya mewakili Melayu generasi ke 4 Merdeka berharap akan berlaku perubahan pemerintahan negara secepat mungkin. Tak sanggup melihat anak cucu saya merempat di negara sendiri kelak.
    Terima kasaih.

  228. Saiful Baharom Sep 11,2008 6:08 PM

    YABhg Tun
    What was initially a political situation is increasingly turning out to be a socio-economic-national security-political situation. Without a firm hand at the helm, the intervention of the security forces cannot be discounted.
    The question is – how best does one remove the Prime Minister? I posit that an en masse resignation of Cabinet members as the most efficient route to force the resignation of the incumbent PM.
    However, I am wondering if whether do our Cabinet Ministers are just so enamoured by their ministerial posts/perks/prestige that they are willing to silently witness the Nation’s continued deterioration, say, within the next six months?
    Any Cabinet minister who resigns will be hailed as a hero, a man of principles and a man of integrity. If Pak Lah survives, the resignee would be an outcast. That, unfortunately, I think, is the price that no incumbent Cabinet Minister, especially UMNO’s, would be willing to pay.

  229. speedbird Sep 11,2008 6:07 PM

    TUN,
    I LOOK FORWARD TO YOU REJOINING UMNO. YOU ARE THE ONLY LEADER WHO COULD SAVE MALAYSIA. I REALLY SUGGEST THAT YOU THROW YOUR SUPPORT TO MUHYIDDIN YASSIN. SO FAR HE IS THE ONLY ONE WE GOT TO FIGHT PAK LAH.
    PLEASE COMMENT ON MAY 13 1969 CALAMITY. THERE ARE BOOKS EVERY BOOKSTORES ARE SELLING, BLAMING THE MALAYS. BECAUSE IT DOESN’T CONDEMN PAK LAH,IT IS ALLOWED TO BE SOLD. I READ IT AND I THINK IT IS SEDITIOUS AND FALSIFIED FROM A CHINESE EXTREMIST POINT OF VIEW

    YOU KNOW VERY WELL BECAUSE YOU HAVE PLAYED THIS GAME BEFORE. DIVIDE AND CONQUER IS THE NAME OF THE GAME TO KEEP UMNO ELITES ALWAYS ON THE TOP OF EVERYTHING.
    AS SAID IN MY MANY COMMENTS TO YOU, I BEG YOU TO BECOME A LEADER OF PEACE.
    YOUR BLOG DEGRADES YOUR CHANCE TO BE A GREAT LEADER.
    YOU CAN WRITE SOMETHING BETTER THAN THIS!

    I said this in my ealier post, which yet to come out!
    Anyway, I say this again:
    The people of Malaysia are Peace Loving citizens. They will NOT resort to violenace and clash with other race, PERIOD !!
    One of the bloggers has a good point; we will only see the racial issue when we watch news/TV or read media.
    WARNING SELFISH POLITICIANS
    Do not use RACE/RACIAL/RACISM/RACIST to achieve your personal agenda. You will fail miserably. You are now living in a era where you deal with knowlegable generation. The generation that are able to think forward!! I suggest you start focusing on building the nation in achieving the Developed Nation status !!

    Tun, love reading your blog. I think all Malaysians miss your leadership. Pak lah’s administration..the so called “open government” but in fact caused racial disharmony. I am woriied about Sept 16 – do you think its going to happen…I think someone need to advise pak lah to retire and 100% focus on his new wife. I agree that Malaysian nowadays would focus in anything other than BN.Pls give us some hints on Sept 16

  234. temenggung Sep 11,2008 5:40 PM

    Salam Tun,
    As long as Pak Lah is in power we will be hearing more and more news on racial/religious issues in the main mediastream until he steps down…2010?? (its too long period) He is the culprit for all these to ignite. Like what you have said before when the leader is weak, people start to step on your head and start begging for this and that. I am getting fed up with all these dirty fiascos orchestrated by the corrupted and racist politicians in UMNO/MCA/MIC and DAP for their own political milage. Everday you will be hearing the same old stories in the front page of the newspaper. Where on earth we could hear all these issues during the 70’s and 80’s? We lived in harmony back then but not anymore now. The situation is very sad now.

    UMNO (majoriti ahli) sedang menunggu Tun dgn hati yg terbuka. Kehadiran Tun akan menjadikan ‘the minoriti’ disappears!!

    Yes that’s a brilliant idea and ask yourself this, if anything happen to a chinese or indian will you show the compassion at all? Tell me if you could define the real meaning of hak ketuanan melayu, does that mean you can look down on all other races in Malaysia as a mere slave to you? Don’t tell me nonsense such as there are rich Chinese or indian did that to you, ethnicity doesn’t define an individual’s behaviour, try understanding this if you care.

    En. Mohd Hisham Saihari,
    About your comment below on September 10, 2008 5:49 PM , all citizen in Malaysia no matter bumi or non-bumi, are loving our country.
    About your statement low non-bumi in public statement, it’s not non-bumi fault, it’s because of SPA/SPP quota system.
    My experiences:
    1) I’m Malaysian citizen but non-bumi lah. In 2004, I passed PTD examination and went to INTAN WILAYAH TENGAH for 3-days test. At Taklimat, we was told that only 30% Chinese and 10% of Indian will selected for interview. En. Mohd Hisham, now you should know why less non-bumi in public service, is that non-bumi fault or they don’t love this country.
    2) in 2004, my wife applied for KPLI (she also non-bumi lah), almost all non-bumi who applied SK school option did not get, but whoever non-bumi applied for SJK school mostly got.. En. Mohd Hisham, now you should know why less non-bumi teacher in SK school, is that non-bumi fault or they don’t love this country.
    Bumi and non-bumi is a powerful device of bad politician to get what they want…
    We as an ordinary citizen (no matter bumi or non-bumi) always love our country.

    Pemimpin tertinggi negara harus buka minda mereka untuk menilai keadaan semasa dan beri perhatian serious tentang percakapan perkauman ini.Bilamana seorang pegawai tertinggi tentera juga telah menyuarakan ada yang tak kena dengan situasi skrg, masih tiada inisiatif dipihak kepimpinan. Tak taulah apa nk jadi dgn pemimpin=pemimpin kita ni. Janganlah dah terantuk baru nak betulkan alang.
    Sy tak taulah nk rasa gembira ke sedih ke bila dapat tahu YBhg Tun nak kembali ke UMNO.Sy harap dgn Kembalinya YBhg Tun kedalam UMNO Tun dilayan dgn baik dan diberi peluang menyatupadukan ahli-ahli UMNO serta memantapkannya.Sy akan rasa sedih jika Tun dihina lagi terutamanya oleh menteri biadap bermulut celupar.
    Sy tetap sentiasa menyokong YBhg Tun bak kata orang Tua-tua ‘We’ll be for each other thru’ thick or thin.For that more sacrifices required’

Tetapi adakah dgn kemasukan semula TUN sahaja dpt mengembalikan kekuatan UMNO semua? .Sesungguhnya UMNO sudah terlalu jauh dari rakyat.UMNO sekarang bukan lagi UMNO dizaman TUN dahulu.Keangkuhan dan kesombongan para pemimpin pemimpin UMNO sekarang mmebuatkan rakyat tidak lagi akan mengundi umno.Kelemahan dan kebodohan paklah yg membiarkan org disekelilinginya memperkudakannya membuatkan ahli UMNO sendiri sudah membenci kepada UMNO.Saya cadangkan ayahanda tun berserta pemimpin yg benar benar mementingkan rakyat dan negara utk menubuhkan sebuah parti yg baru dimana ahli ahlinya nanti tidak seperti ahli umno yg berpolitik semata mata utk mendapatkan kontrak utk tembolok mereka sendiri.fikir dan renungkanlah..Selamat berbuka kepada ayahanda tun serta bonda siti hasmah

  247. Chuck68 Sep 11,2008 4:53 PM

    Good day to you Honorable Tun,
    May God blessed Tun & family with good Health & Happiness.
    I wish to share a few thoughts of mine. Eversince, our beloved country Malaysia gained independent from the British. Multi races such as Melayu, Cina, India, Iban, Kadazan had worked their way to build Malaysia & continue multi races work to make Malaysia becomes what is Malaysia today. Stand high in the map, get recognition from the world community.
    I just cannot understand why, certain irresponsible people playing racial card. Now is not about playing racial card, what matter nows is to improve the wealth of the country. Let’s work hard for better tomorrow. I vote for anyone who can lead the country, I don’t really care if he is cina or not. Lead the country lead the “Rakyat” is the leader I will vote for.I wish to share the following;
    Bagi Ahmad Ismail, dia juga datang dari keluarga pendatang dan menumpang hidup di negara ini. Ahmad Ismail tidak boleh menafikan hakikat bahawa datuk neneknya adalah pendatang dari India untuk menerokai penghidupan yang lebih baik dan selesa di bumi bertuah ini.
    Perdana Menteri Abdullah bin Ahmad juga tergolong dalam kategori yang sama. Datuknya di sebelah ibu adalah pendatang dari wilayah Guandong, China. Pendek kata, datuk Pak Lah iaitu bapa Allahyarhamah Kailan bernama Hassan Salleh atau Hah Su Chiang adalah seorang pendatang. Beliau berhijrah ke Tanah Melayu dari
    wilayah Guandong (Kwantung) pada pertengahan abad ke-19 dan menetap di Bayan Lepas sebagai pekebun getah, pesawah padi dan kemudian saudagar intan
    berlian.
    Najib Tun Razak, Timbalan PM juga berasal daripada keluarga pendatang iaitu dari Sulawesi, Indonesia atau lebih
    senang disebut orang Bugis manakala sepupunya Hishamudin Hussein tidak terlepas daripada darah keturunan Turki.
    Datuk nenek mantan PM Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad juga pendatang dari Kerala,India manakala ibu Almarhum Tunku Abdul Rahman berasal dari negeri Siam (Thailand).
    Kesultanan Melayu Melaka pun dibuka oleh orang pendatang dari Sumatra bernama Parameswara, seorang anak raja atau bangsawan beragama Hindu.
    Dalam sejarah kesultanan Melayu, kita dapati ada yang ditubuh oleh pendatang dari Bugis dan ada pula dari Hadhramut selain dari Minangkabau.
    Kawan kawan sekalian, selepas menbaca apa yang di tulis atas, apakah pendapat saudara saudari? Apakah yang ia ini menberitahu kita semua.Kita semua berbilang kaum mendirikan satu kaum iaitu “Kaum Malaysia”. Perpaduan amatlah penting untuk semua.
    Saya cina, saya cintai aman damai, saya tidak mahu perkara dasyhat berlaku. Sebagai “Rakyat” bertanggung jawab, saya menunaikan tanggung jawab masing masing demi Malaysia. Saya tetap percaya Perpaduan amalan Rakyat Malaysia.
    Biar kita berfikir, apakah yang kita mahu, aman damai, atau pun miskin..yang mana kah kita pilih, saya mesti pilih aman damai, denganadanya aman damai, saya boleh cari rezeki….Dengan ada wujudnya Perpaduan baru ada “Social contract”.
    Sekian terima Kasih,
    Chuck68

    Salam Tun,
    Welcome back to UMNO.
    As my pevious mail that only YOU and RAJA2 can stabilise the country.
    Now, the Tngku Mahkota Pahang raise the concerns about the Malay’s Right and hopefully with the Royal support and your tireless commitmment will rescue the Malay and eventually the Country.
    Agreed with your analysis, this is the first time the malay reject the sosial contract. And this is getting bad to worse and if we don’t act and repair the sosial contract it will turn this country to “civil war” and eventually we will fall behind our neighbouring contries.
    The sosial contract must be MADE to be understand and preserve it at with firmness and fairness and NOT sway to the loudest noices.
    Lastly, pray that you will act fast and pull back the glory.
    Take care!

  249. ZINNZAIN Sep 11,2008 4:50 PM

    YAB Tun,
    The latest news that stole the limelight was the announcement made by YB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin that YAB Tun may rejoin UMNO. It is indeed unexpected but not really surprising. I am still waiting for the official announcement to be made by Tun himself. Otherwise, it is just an unofficial news…
    Eventhough YAB Tun left UMNO in May 2008, Tun did not really abandoned UMNO. UMNO has and always will be in your heart. This could be seen at the way how critical Tun commented on how UMNO is being run and your call for a leadership change.
    Witnessing the sorry state of UMNO deteriorating from being a supreme party when you handed over the leadership in 2003, to the present state, must have been very painful to Tun. This could have prompted you to swallow your pride by overturning your earlier decision of coming back only when the present leadership stand down.
    As a great leader, I think Tun is making the right decision to come back for the sake of Agama, Bangsa and Negara. The day Tun make an official announcement to rejoin UMNO, I will tender my membership form to join UMNO as well. Right now I am a partyless person.
    Coming back to the topic of Social Contract. Obviously judging by the responses and comments to this topic, there are lots of people out there who seems not to understand or pretended not to understand why it was created in the first place. I think Tun sensed this and thats why this Social Contract 3 comes about.
    Social Contract have been in existance for a long time and has served us well until recently. The way I look at it is that, the word has been misused and abused for the wrong reason i.e. to garner popularity support by certain quarters. Again, I think Tun sensed this and hoping that those who doesn’t understand the real Social Contract per se, will understand after reading Social Contract 3.
    By the way, the person from Bukit Bendera is as defiant as ever and downright arrogant. Even after being slapped with a 3 year suspension, he is blaming the top 2 leadership for handing him the suspension, supposedly under pressure from other BN component party leaders. That was a slap on the faces of the top 2 leaders.
    ‘Bahasa Menunjukkan Bangsa’.
    ‘Terlajak Perahu Bolih DiUndur, Terlajak Kata Buruk Padahnya’
    Renung renungkan peribahasa di atas…
    P.S. I am eagerly awaiting for the official announcement by YAB Tun rejoining UMNO because that will be the moment I will join UMNO!
    Semoga Yang Amat Berhormat Tun dan Yang Amat Berbahagia Tun Siti Hasmah sentiasa dilindungi ALLAH SAW hendaknya.

    i respect your decision…. after your comeback- then what will happen? what will you do with anwar? how will you explain to Hindraf group?. and lets not forget the latest chinese issue?…. you cant cover anyone’s eyes…everything is transparent now… lets face this while you were ruling, people were living in lie…. everybody wants to impress everyone by hiding the truth elements- everyone was acting… nobody dares to talk anything . and now when everyone starts to wake up from deep sleep- you decided to come back and put them back to sleep..is that your mission? DO YOU WANT TO COVER PEOPLE’S EYES? if it is- then im so sorry to say this- we will be living far behind from any other developed country.. cus 1st comes is changing the mentality of people- then comes development….. you cant achieve much without changing people’s mentality …. how to change people mentality- is to demolish bumiputera rights!… im a malay and im telling you this. bumiputera makes malay lazy!! when the half of the majority are lazy- then the country — is always in developing country status!…there is still time to change malays.chinese and indians are much more smarter than us- in any field… do you realise this- shame to say this but i was very much surprised a malay doctor cant speak english fluently!! those degrees that most of them got it are all are by bumiputera quato system-i dunt say all of it – but most of them- malay accountants doesnt even know how to do basic calculations.. i have many malay & different race frens – that willing to pay and see chinese and indians as doctors / lawyers/ accountants/etc… but not malay .. y ? its not because they hate malays.. but its because of lack of confidence…. but again im telling you– its not every malay are like that but majority…. its just like saying- ( weakness is right in front of the eyes- and yet the eyes refuses to accept it- this is call EGO.)

    Welcome back Tun, my grandparents, parents and all in my family struggled so hard for UMNO, for the love of BANGSA, AGAMA dan NEGARA.

    Salam Tun,
    Perpaduan kaum very important, saya setuju dgn saudara KUNCI , dulu lain sekarang memang lain. jarang kita dapat lihat budak sekarang ada rakan pelbagai kaum……tak macam dulu-dulu…really GREAT.

    Tun Masuk UMNO semula…
    Tau Tun cuma merajuk-rajuk sayang jer…
    dalam hati duk risau lagi kat UMNO tu…
    Masakan menjadi Presiden selama 22 Tahun langsung x sayang kat UMNO..
    Saya pun jadi Pengerusi Koop Sekolah walaupun 2 tahun dah sayang giler kat koop tu. Macam2 duk fikir untuk majukan koop. Inikan lagi Tun. Saya faham perasaan Tun apabila ada orang yang lagi lembap,x reti buat keje. Hancur ar. Kalu saya jadi Tun pun saya pun naik minyak jugak.
    Tapi Tun kena lah ingat, Sayang UMNO kena bertunjangkan kepada kecintaan Pada Allah. Barulah perjuangan UMNO tu sentiasa diberkati. Hukum Allah kenalah Tegakkan. Mungkin Tun silap dulu. Tapi sekarang masa untuk kita berubah. Saya nie budak2 lagi, x leh mengundi lagi. Kalu boleh mengundi pun, saya undi AKIM jer.
    Nak cakap pasal kontrak sosial nie memang ar terlalu formal. Tapi apa yang islam ajar kena ar ikut. Hormati Hak seseorang. Selesai lah. Orang melayu pun kena ingat lah, jangan duk lupa jer. Bila dah ada kuasa tu, gunakan nya sebaik mungkin untuk mengikat tali perpaduan antara kaum dengan baik. Sebaik-baik cara melalui aliran pendidikan. Saya sokong sangat jika SJK ditukar menjadi SMK or SK. Budak-budak perlu bercampur supaya diorang mempunyai ramai kawan berlainan bangsa. Barulah tolenrasi kaum boleh berlaku. Guru-guru pun kena jadi superman lah, kena pandai kawal pelajar supaya tak ada rusuhan kaum…Hehehehe…
    Ingat sebelum kena, terlajak perahu boleh diundur, terlajak masa mati jawabnya.
    Sekian,

    I have to agree with lextcs:-
    “But i think we the non malays have ourselves to blame not because someone calls us ‘pendatang’ but we have failed to shake off the immigrant spirit in our hearts. Look at the way we send our children overseas for further studies thereafter encouraging them never to come back, look at the way we repartriate finances abroad, look at the way we produce our offsprings, look at the way we take participation in social forums (such as ibu bapa associations) and the list goes on and on. We have failed to take up patriotism to the fullest”
    1. It all started by wanting separate education from kindergarten to primary – Chinese school / Tamil school. As they enter secondary school, the polarisation has been set in. This is the time when they are colour blind.
    2. Won’t join the army, police or government institution because of meagre salary…
    They have failed to take up patriotism to the fullest
    Only my 2 sen worth

    Assalamualaikum Tun
    Terpanggil untuk bercerita sedikit… rasa rindu pada Tun memang tak dapat dielakkan oleh kebanyakan rakyat di Malaysia ni termasuklah Pak Lah, rasanya Pak Lah pun terfikir alangkah bagusnya kalau dia masih Timbalan Tun, apa-apa yang terjadi kita ada Ayahanda yang dapat menyelesaikan atau memberi pandangan.
    Kerisauan Tun kepada UMNO dan Malaysia amat jelas kelihatan, kami masih memerlukan Tun untuk memastikan Bahtera Merdeka ini terus tahan membelah lautan. Walaupun ketika Tun bersara Bahtera sudah pun tenang di tengah lautan, tapi disebabkan nakhoda yang baru tidak tahu ilmu pelayaran maka isi bahtera menjadi kecoh, sedangkan ombak dan badai tidaklah sehebat semasa mula-mula bahtera mencecah air ketika dahulu.
    Salam Ramadhan buat Tun sekeluarga.

  256. Guruh Sep 11,2008 4:29 PM

    Salam Ayahenda Tun,
    The issue here is corruption especially amongst the UMNO leaders. They hide behind the social contract & made bundles for themselves, taking advantage of ‘keistimewaan Bumiputra’. In the kampongs, its not the businessmen that were dubed ‘tycoons’ but ‘Mentri UMNO’! (Just wondered what happened to the report made twice by Mazlan Harun? on Pak Lah? on corruption? No case?) But then again, this is bumi ‘tanah Melayu’! The educated non Malays know their history & the role all played for the success of this nation. If only we can be like the Thais or Filipinos where everybody has Thai or Filipino names, then we can truly be Malaysians. No more issue of Chinese Malaysian or Indian Malaysian. We can have one Malaysian culture as well! Religon, we can have freedom of religion, no problem here because all religion teach good! The NEP is good, but the management of it by those in power is the problem. Instead of using it to meet its objectives, they just use the NEP to enrich themselves.
    Selamat berpuasa.

    Selamat Sejahtera Tun & Keluarga,
    Saya telah lama mengikut komen Tun didalam blog ini.Tahniah,akhirnya Tun sedar juga bahawa UMNO memang memerlukan pemimpin seperti Tun.Jadi dengan kembalinya Tun ke UMNO,semoga Pak Lah sedar kedudukan beliau yang semakin hari semakin goyang.Tampuk pimpinan UMNO mesti di serahkan kepada pemimpin baru yang lebih tahu nak mentadbir negara & rakyat dan bukan menari mengikut rentak dan cepat melatah. Tun lihatlah sendiri, bagaimana PM & TPM menari mengikut gendang dan rentak Dato Seri Anuar.
    Tetapi PM masih hidup dalam mimpi dan tidak mau mengaku apa yang berlaku disekeling beliau. Rata-rata pemimpin UMNO yang ada semua YES MAN seperti Najib, Nazri Aziz,Tengku Adenan,Ali Rustam.Mereka tu semua mengampu Pak Lah semata-mata.
    Tun kena betulkan semua ini supaya negara kita tidak porak peranda di kerjakan pemimpin pengampu ini.
    Tetap bersama TUN..

    Anyone remembers the TV advertisement of a little Chinese boy who answered his girlfriend is a Malay girl, cos he thinks she’s the most beautiful one? I too love my Malay friends, I respect my Malay boss and I think many of the Malays are genuinely honest people.
    OMK’s statement is very true. We are brought up racist because the system divides us this way. Just look at any form you have to fill up, for bank, for school, passport, IC….. we have to identify our race and even religion. Our leaders have vision, but hang on to the wrong approach.
    Malays should not worry about their rights as we Chinese never question that. In fact, most Chinese dont bother about politics. What concern us most is money in our pocket.
    Ahmad Ismail says he will continue his perjuangan and this racism will never stop with his mouth still open.

  260. kembarakersani Sep 11,2008 4:16 PM

    My only comment is that the Chinese and other minorities HAVE to assimilate to be Malaysian or go back to China or Singapore ( YES I’M A RACIST ). How sad it is when Malaysia is thought to be another Chinese Diaspora country. In western world Malay does not exist because to them Asia is Chinese. So my last say MALAY IS THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF MALAYSIA AND THAT’S THE FACT!

    dah cukup jadikan kita insaf..
    3. Apakata Pak Lah mengaku tak berdaya nak jadi pemimpim orang
    Melayu dan Malaysia
    4. Sebab..hanya Umno jee..yang nak perjuangkan nasib orang Melayu..

    Alhamdullilah Tun!
    You answered our call.I wrote earlier on ‘will someone out there come to our rescue’.Now they say they need advise from people like you.You did give your advise but they threw them out remember?
    Tun,I’m glad that you are are willing to take the bull by the horns.
    As always we wish you the best of health and will be behind you always.

  265. peace Sep 11,2008 3:55 PM

    dear all,
    some of u commented that non-malays are not contributing towards the nation ie not in the public sector, i am a classic example being a non-malay with proper education qualification been trying to apply to public sector but the only reply i receive not for now, who is rejecting who you think for urself. Be in our shoes than you know how its feel.
    Think b4 you ppl throw your words at the end of the day if anything happen to Malaysia all of us be at the front line to protect it. Tun I seriously think you are provoking more racist feeling in us now and may god bless you for all your doings.

  266. abdullahaj Sep 11,2008 3:52 PM

    dearest tun,
    its getting critical now, not only political and economic conditions – its getting very racist now.
    who can help? nobody except you.
    we cannot advise you what to do….
    you know best !

  268. Denny Sep 11,2008 3:46 PM

    Hello Tun and bloggers,
    It is so frustrating and painful to see/read all this expression, passion and energy that are wasted. Wasted because it is un guided and for the wrong cause/priority. (The starting point is not true).
    Why are we doing all this? what is it for? For the better of the country? for the better of the people? majority, minority or all? will all this ‘bickering’ make the country stronger? no…then stop it.
    Democracy is only for those who are in the level playing field. And we all know that it is not easy for any country/group to ensure that all their citizen are playing in a level playing field. Get real. Otherwise we will not need any social contract.
    That being said nothing prevent us (if we believe we are mature and ready) to review or update the content of the contract. Not tearing it up but rather have a constructive discussion around it.
    The focus is how can we use the social contact to advance the country as whole? it is not about concession, compromise or …but rather the sum of the equation should be larger (1+1=3)!
    Hence, their is no point having any contract if we do not know where we want to get to (whole as a country). We first need to get the big picture right. Don’t jump the sequences otherwise it is just a waste of time and energy for you and all the rakyat..
    Wake up.
    Yours respectfully,
    Denny

  269. MoFaz Sep 11,2008 3:45 PM

    Assalamualaikum & salam sejahter pembaca semua…
    pada pendapat saya, tindakan Tun keluar dari UMNO bukanlah kerana ‘kalah’ tetapi adalah untuk menegaskan pendiriannya bahawa AAB perlu lepaskan jawatan. Dalam masa yang sama, Tun akan dapat menyusun strateginya untuk menyelamatkan UMNO sekiranya ‘Plan A’ gagal. Fikirkan, jika kita sentiasa berada di dalam rumah, adakah kita dapat mengetahui apa yg berlaku pada dinding luar dan di atas atap jika kita tidak memeriksa?
    Tindakan keluar juga membolehkan Tun memprotes habis habisan pimpinan AAB. Jika bersuara di dalam UMNO, orang kata biadap pula bila menegur PM…
    Kini dalam situasi yang tidak menentu, Tun kembali dengan harapan dapat memperbaiki dan menyelamatkan keadaan. Teruskan perjuanganmu Tun. Saya sentiasa menyokongmu!

  270. leviathan80 Sep 11,2008 3:44 PM

    Nasionalism = Kebangsaan = Asabiyyah
    Islam adalah jawapannya, Tun. Kalau Islam memerintah, bukan sahaja Melayu, bahkan Cina, India, Dayak, Kadazan serta seluruh dunia dan alam akan terbela.
    Sesungguhnya Islam itu diturunkan untuk manfaat seluruh alam, tidak terhad kepada orang-orang Islam sahaja. Orang-orang Bukan Islam yang berada di bawah pemerintahan Islam mendapat manfaat jauh melebihi daripada berada di bawah pemerintahan Bukan Islam sendiri.

  271. Shamsulfahmi Shamsudin Sep 11,2008 3:44 PM

    Dear Tun,
    I noticed 2 of my comments, one in Pohon Maaf and another in Social Contract 3 was not accepted.
    Is it to politically incorrect? I wish to know. Please state reasons why the two postings were rejected.
    You may email me at shamsulfahmi@gmail.com
    Will await your kind explanation.
    Many thanks and regards.

    Salam untuk Ayahanda Tun sekeluarga ….
    Alhamdulillah, selamat kembali ke pangkuan Umno. Insyaallah, kebenaran akan berpihak kepada mereka yang ikhlas. MT bukan setakat perlu menerima kembali Ayahanda Tun tetapi perlu melantik Ayahanda sebagai penasihat Umno/BN demi survival bangsa, agama dan negara. Kepada mereka yang pernah mencium tangannya semasa Ayahanda berada di puncak tetapi meludah setelah Ayahanda berundur jangan bimbang, kerana saya yakin Ayahanda bukan seorang pendendam. Buang yang keruh. Inilah masanya untuk melayu bangkit. Ayuh bangsa ku !!! Ayuh bangsa ku !!! Ayuh bangsa ku !!!

  273. othmanzainal Sep 11,2008 3:38 PM

    Salam sejahtera Tun.
    Saya amat tertarik dengan tindakan Tun kembali semula ke parti UMNO sedangkan sebelum ini Tun pernah menyuarakan sebab-sebab mengapa Tun keluar dari parti dan kemungkinan untuk kembali semula adalah bergantung kepada kedudukan Pak Lah didalam parti dan kerajaan.
    Walau apapun tindakan serta keputusan yang di buat, saya berharap agar ianya biarlah untuk kepentingan agama, bangsa dan negara. Bangsa Melayu sudah lama terpinggir dari pencapaian ekonomi. Dan tidak ramai pencapaian anak anak melayu yang boleh di bangga kan sehingga kini.
    Kita masih bertuah kerana bangsa melayu masih memegang kuasa tetapi kuasa yang di salahgunakan tidak memberi apa-apa makna kepada kedudukan bangsa melayu.
    Pergolakan politik yang belaku sekarang menampak kan kebodohan pemimpin pemimpin melayu. Dan sekiranya kepentingan peribadi tidak di beri keutamaan, saya yakin parti UMNO serta pemimpin pemimpin melayu akan menjadi kuat. Parti yang kuat sudah pasti juga menjadi sandaran oleh parti-parti komponen yang lain bagi memupuk kestabilan politik dan ekonomi.
    Oleh itu, kembalinya Tun kedalam UMNO diharap dapat memberi perubahan dan pembahruan dari segi pemikiran pemimpin pemimpin serta ahli ahli UMNO.
    Perlu di ingat Tun, rakyat sudah semakin bosan dengan pergolakan politik yang berlaku sekarang. Bertindak lah sebelum terlambat.
    Sekian, wassalam.

  274. FAUDZI Sep 11,2008 3:31 PM

    Saya setuju 100%. Tapi macamana caranya nak suruh si AAB ni turun??? kita bukan ada kuasa atau perwakilan UMNO. Nak tunggu pilihanaraya lambat lagi. Tun pulak dan join UMNO balik. Pening, pening
    wassalam

  275. berisu74 Sep 11,2008 3:26 PM

    Salam….Tun,
    Saya masih percaya masa yg bole menentukan kontrak sosial ini masih perlu atau tidak di praktikkan. Cuba kita tengok negara Amerika atau Autralia..mereka mengambil masa beratus tahun dari kemerdekaan mereka untuk bersikap keterbukaan antara kaum di negara mereka.
    Inikan kita yg baru 50 tahun merdeka…belum..belum masanya lagi kita hendak menghuraikan kontrak sosial ini. Masanya akan tiba jua tapi bukan sekarang. Selama ini orang melayu cukup lama bersabar dan bertoleransi pada kaum lain..dan kita berharap kaum lain juga bersabar dan bertoleransi terhadap kontrak sosial ini. Mungkin pada masa akan datang kita boleh melonggarkan sedikit ikatan kontrak tersebut mengikut keadaan dan masa waktu itu kerana ianya bukan bertujuan untuk diikat selama-lamanya.
    Saya pada awal-awal lagi memang kurang senang dengan sifat keterbukaan Pak Lah dalam pemerintahannya. Bagi saya terlalu awal untuk bersikap terbuka kerana bila diamalkan..inilah jadinya, kita secara terbuka membangkitkan isu-isu sensitif dan hasilnya kita bertengkar sesama kita. Itulah sebabnya waktu Tun memerintah dahulu, ada beberapa perkara terpaksa dikawal atau terpaksa bersifat diktator…kenapa? Sebabnya inilah..api perkauman. Jangan disangka api ini jinak, jika api ini tak dapat dikawal ianya akan menjadi besar dan liar dan akhirnya..kita akan bergaduh sesama kita dan malah lebih teruk daripada 13 Mei…nescayalah kalau kita ambil sikap lewa terhadap perkara ini..peristiwa yang lebih besar daripada 13 Mei atau peperangan antara kaum di Yugoslavia akan berlaku di negara ini….
    Sekian, wassalam.

  276. concerncitizen Sep 11,2008 3:25 PM

    Dr.M,
    I find your article very disturbing sometimes, what is your real intention for such article?…Is it really for the good of this country as you claim or you have other agenda…
    I love this country and I want peace and harmony to continue… as a former PM i hope you will also try to bring peace and harmony to this country.
    Some of the comment I read here are one sided. I hope people don’t be so narrow minded and listen to only to one party and start making baseless accusation and lot of unnecessary comment. Please read more and be more open minded. When u keep your mind wide and open you can think better and make good decisions.
    Yes I am also fed up of the current scenario of Malaysian Politic… and the change should happen fast before things get worse.. but not in a negative way…

  277. Benderbuzz Sep 11,2008 3:22 PM

    Salam Tun.
    Memandangkan Tun akan kembali semula kepada UMNO. Saya harap ahli-ahli UMNO mendapat sedikit kekuatan dan semangat untuk membuat perubahan demi memastikan UMNO tidak terkubur.
    Pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO yang korup, sombong dan tidak menunjukkan contoh kepimpinan yang baik perlu disingkirkan segera kerana akar umbi sudah muak dan mual dengan perilaku mereka.
    Mereka yang berada dalam UMNO semata-mata kepentingan diri dan kroni harus sedar bahawa mereka membawa bersama mapetaka dan hanyalah penyebab kepada keruntuhan kepimpinan UMNO. Ibarat sokong membawa rebah.
    Seharusnya mereka ini sedar diri dan berundur kerana UMNO memerlukan kepimpinan yang lebih berdaya maju dan berdaya juang yang tinggi agar boleh dijadikan tempat akar umbi bergantung.
    Tahniah kepada TS Muhiyudin Yasin kerana membuktikan “You got balls!”

    It only takes a racial slur to destroy the entire kingdom. We cannot deny the fact that all these “perpaduan talks” are merely lipservices painted by the atrocious politicians for their benefits.
    These people are the cause for all the racial tensions.
    What is the Social Contract all about? Are the non-Malays, apart from the first generation immigrants, forever to be indebted to the Malays for granting our Great Grandfathers citizenship of this country?
    There is no benefit for anyone to hold on to the so called Social Contract to develop the country. We should all work towards the progress of the country and for the well being of the citizens as a whole.
    We should discard the aparthied mentality and forge unity and dignity of our nation.
    God is fair to everyone who reckons the abundance of wealth he has bestowed upon us. We have to work hard and reap the bebefits bestowed by him upon mankind.
    It has been 51 years of independence and it is disheartening to notice that this country is so seriously racially divided. As I mentioned earlier, the politicians should stop stoking racial sentiments into the people.
    The Government should consider place more emphasis on developing the human capital and sincerely initiate avenues for racial intergeration. Throw out racial segregations and reward the deserving citizens of their undertakings. Help all deserving citizens and treat everyone as equal. Naturally there will be a strong bond of friendship among the races and ultimately there would only be one race that is Bangsa Malaysia.

  279. SNSO Sep 11,2008 3:21 PM

    Salam Ayahanda Tun,
    I’m very much on yr side and agree with you.
    No matter what people want to ‘condemn’ or ‘taruh’ you. Jangan putus asa. You know that there’s many many people behind you and I’m one of those.
    I hope you’ll quickly get back into UMNO and do something to help stabilize or better to improve the situation esp demi kepentingan dan maruah bangsa dan agama tercinta.
    At this time and situation, it has come to the point where if our leaders ‘silap langkah’ … maruah bangsa dan negara akan tergadai dan jadi lah kita dan anak cucu kita hidup umpama ‘ merempat ‘ di tanah sendiri … Nauzubillah …
    ‘We’ were ‘strong & disegani’ when you were the PM and by right we should be ‘stronger’ after you left … UNFORTUNATELY, we became weak and weaker as time goes by … ‘WE’ must be strong like when u are the PM and become stronger each day so that others dont simply condemn and simply say what they like and wish up to the extend of ‘ memijak, mencemar dan menjatuhkan ‘ maruah bangsa.
    Semuga Ayahanda Tun Dapat Mempengaruhi Agar Perubahan Dapat DiLaksanakan ‘IMMEDIATELY’ !
    Semuga Ayahanda Di Beri Kekuatan, Kesihatan Yang Baik Selalu & Kemenangan Dalam Apa Yang DiPerjuangKan…InshaALLAH…Ameen.

    1.Selamat kembali kepangkuan UMNO.
    2Ada segelintir entries disini mempersoalkan kenapa TUN ingin kembali pada UMNO ketika AAB masih meneraju UMNO dan kerajaan.
    3.Tapi pokok nya bila kah AAB ini tidak lagi memimpin UMNO dan PM Malaysia.Dan ingin terus mencetuskan keadaan tengang antara kaum,kelemahan pentadbiran,rasuah flip flop dan pelbagai2 lagi yang akan menjurus kepada kerosakan.
    4. TUN yang bertanggung jawab melantik AAB sebagai pengantinya ketika itu. Dan TUN telah gagal melihat keupayaan AAB sebenarnya sehingga kini telah banyak kerosakan berlaku disebabkan tidak cemerlang nya AAB.
    5.Olih yang demikian ada lah wajar TUN dipersalahkan. Dan TUN mesti bertanggung jawab untuk menyelesaikan kesilapan nya melantik AAB sebagai pengantinya yang telah banyak melakukan kesilapan demi kesilapan.
    6.Maka itu TUN mesti berada semula didalam UMNO,BN dan kerajaan(jika perlu) untuk menyelesaikan kemelut ini dan diberi kuasa untuk memperbaiki semula keaadaan dan merawat segala macam penyakit yang ada dalam kerajaan mahu pun UMNO dan BN.
    7.Penglibatan untuk perkara ini TUN tak bolih di lengahkan lagi.
    kerana keaadaan UMNO,BN,rakyat dan negara semakin NAZAK.
    8.Majoriti rakyat melihat hanya TUN yang mampu untuk melakukan pembersihan ini.
    9.Sebagai nasihat pada ahli2 UMNO supaya merenung perkara ini jauh,tidak hanya merenung pada kepentingan diri sendiri.TUN mesti disokong semula dan berkerjasama dengan TUN demi bangsa,agama dan negara.Semoga seluruh rakyat dapat menikmati semula keindahan sewaktu TUN meneraju negara.InshaALLAH.
    10.AAB,KJ and CO. mesti terima hakikat bahawa segala perangcangan putar belit,agenda tersembunyi dan permainan politik wang anda semua telah dilihat olih rakyat dengan jelas. Semua nya itu tidak membawa kebaikan untuk rakyat dan negara.Maka dengan itu dipersilakan lah untuk berundur segera.Terima kasih.
    11.Kerajaan tetap akan menganugerah darjah kebesaran TUN pada AAB selepas bersara……TUN ABDULLAH….FuhYOOOOO….

    I’m Malaysian chinese and I really don’t care who becomes the PM as long as he is capable. It’s not like I insist that we MUST have a non malay ruling the country… I really don’t care if the Ahmad guy calls the chinese pendatang!.. Why is Ahmad’s comment worth getting angry over? I know I live in Malaysia all my life and obviously I do not come from anywhere else.
    But I do care that one day I will have a family and I want my children to earn what they work for. I want them to have a sense of belonging in this country and not just feel like they have to work twice as hard to earn something. Do you get me? I don’t care about power and I don’t care about politics. I grew up in a national school and had plenty of Malay and Indian friends. I am not rich. My dad works for the government all his life.

  283. Impian Malaysia Sep 11,2008 3:10 PM

    Ada ramai yang sangka bahawa non-bumi tidak menyumbang kepeada sektor goverment adalah tindakan tidak mencintai negara.
    kawanku, kita perlu menghadapi fakta-fakta di kalangan masyarakat.
    non-bumi tiada chance untuk cermelang di sektor kerajaan. Ketua-ketua ini adalah majoriti melayu, walaupun bagaimana kami berusaha adalah susah kami diterima sebagai ketua officer.
    Kebanyakan kami cuba memohon jawatan kerajaan tetapi ditolakan.
    adalah faktanya pelajar non bumi yang mencapai keputusan SPM yang cermerlang ditolak pemomhonan ke university tempatan. Manakala mereka diterima daripada University Jiran kami Singapore (National Singapore University) dengan biawasiswa.
    adalah faktanya- pelajar-pelajar dari sekolah cina mempunyai keputusan yang lebih cermelang. Biarkan sekolah cina atau kerajaan.
    Pada akhirnya sesiapa yang gagal bahasa national dalam SPM maknanya gagal dalam semua subjek.
    Malaysia tiada masalah perkauman. Kami hanya menghadapi dua masalah-
    golongan miskin semakin bertambah. Orang kaya pula semakin kaya
    Golongan professional semakin banyak meninggalkan negara ini.
    Kalau polisi bumi-putera begitu berkesan kenapa golongan miskin semakin banyak ? Kebanyakan golongan miskin adalah bumi putera. Menakjubkan ada kebanyakan orang india dan non-bumi dari borneo dikategori dalam golongan yang paling miskin.
    Bukankah polisi negara sepatut membantu golongan miskin biarkan melayu, cina atau india ?
    Tibalah masa untunk kami menentukan masa depan negara. Adakah kami mahu seperti negara-negara arab, indonesia atau philipine yang sentiasa dalam huru-hara. Atau kami ingin mencapai impian kita WAWASAN 2020.

  284. arloonie Sep 11,2008 3:09 PM

    salam Tun,
    saya rasa saya harus tabik pada Tun…Sekarang baru saya sedar yang Tun adalah ‘the true leader’…saya rase Tun nak join kembali dalam UMNO sebab Tun sayang bangsa Melayu..Tun mesti sedih sebab segala usahanya selama ini jadi seperti sekarang..Seorang yang betul2 pemimpin yang baik sahaja akan berkorban jiwa dan raganya untuk bangsa dan negara sendiri…
    Sampai bila2 pun saya akan hormati perjuangan TUn..
    take care Tun..Selamat berpuasa..

  285. AZIF Sep 11,2008 2:52 PM

    Tun,
    Strongly supporting every effort to ensure AAB resign immediatly. On the Social Contract issues, matters are happening as Tun have mentioned, and is getting out of control with AAB as PM.Tun you are right to bring up this issues again for those umfamiliar and confused on why social contract was implemented by the late Tunku.UMNO need Tun to ensure UMNO is on track again and BN could be safe. No present leaders at this moment of time could handle issues such as this, and probable delay could trigger another racialist sentiments being raised.The last thing we Malaysian need is to have violents and choas among the various races. Tun as an Adviser, for who ever is the PM would resolve issues and guide the Goverment. Strong support can be assured because this wise moves would helped to rebuild Malaysia. Tun has done this before, and Tun with strong majority support can do it again.Salam.

  286. Noorizz Sep 11,2008 2:51 PM

    Salam Tun,
    We have been waiting for you all these while. Welcome back please do something for the sake of the Malays in our country. Im sure you can lead again.
    Please stop all these nonsense that going on in our country lately. I believe you and your team can do wonders again.
    Pak Lah should resign long time ago as what takes place lately are due to his poor leadership people has no respect of him as compared to you. During your time none of this happened.
    Welcome back again take care and Im sure you can do wonders.

  287. zoff Sep 11,2008 2:47 PM

    Salam Tun,
    in order to prove you’re right as many here seems to doubt, why don’t an independent body do a survey on the Malays/Bumiputera. The survey must cover 60% of the entire bumiputera population.
    The survey must ask questions like whether the bumiputeras still wants the special status or are happy and eager to do away with it as it is outdated.
    after the survey is done, then we’ll know for sure whether the majority of the bumiputeras in this country agrees to the abolishment of the NEP or not.
    and something interesting that i’ve always observed is that when someone from east Malaysia complaints bout the unfairness of the NEP, how bumiputera rights should be abolish and how the country should be fair to all its citizens, that someone always turns out to be a chinese. Where’s the muruts, kadazans, ibans, bidayuhs, etc… has someone asked them if they want their bumiputera status
    to be revoked?

  288. PowerRanger Sep 11,2008 2:45 PM

    Dearest Tun and all readers,
    1) Perpaduan antara kaum2 di malaysia adalah SUKAR dicapai jika wujudnya Parti-parti yang berasakan kaum. Ini terbukti setelah malaysia melalui 51 tahun kemerdekaan (Hendak menghabiskan 50 tahun lagi untuk mencuba??).
    2) Oleh itu, Kerajaan sekarang yang terdiri daripada UMNO,MCA,MIC, etc haruslah diuraikan dan digantikan dengan “BARISAN NATIONAL”. (Sebab: semua menginap di dalam sebuah bangolow adalah berbeza daripada menginap di dalam sebuah condo yang berbagai units).
    3) Begitu juga bagi pihak Pembangkang kita yang sepatutnya digelar “PAKATAN RAKYAT” dan bukannya pakatan antara PKR-PAS-DAP (Sebab: kemungkinan boleh menjadi Kerajaan).
    4) Maka, PERCAYALAH Malaysia yang kita cintai ini mesti menjadi sebuah negara yang KUAT & BERPADU, MAJU & DISANJUNGI…
    Best Regards

    Assalamualaikum
    terima kasih kepada Tun kerana memberikan informasi yang berguna disaat genting dengan pergolakkan yang berlaku dinegara kita sekarang. Maklumat Tun saat berguna buat generasi muda sekarang.
    Disini saya jugak hendak mengkritik saudara Asus, saya berpendapat bahawa saudara asus ni tidak pernah menjadi seorang pemimpin dimana beliau tidak memahami hati seorang pemimpin, mungkin beliau tidak melihat rekod pemimpin2 seluruh dunia dimana Tun merupakan seorang pemimpin yang benar2 mengubah kedudukan Malaysia dimata dunia. Diharap saudara Asus tidak bekecil hati dengan komen saya ni.
    Wasalam dari generasi warisan Tun…
    Terima Kasih Tun

  291. leo7 Sep 11,2008 2:41 PM

    Tun Mahathir,
    Salam Dengan Penuh Hormat.
    Saya mendoakan agar UMNO waras untuk menerima baik cadangan untuk Tun balik menjadi ahli.
    Saya mendoakan agar UMNO dapat memberi satu kedudukan dalam Party untuk Tun memainkan peranan berkesan membentuk semula UMNO dan BN ketahap yang lebih tinggi.
    Tun telah melihat segala perkembangan dan penguncupan didalam tepuh Tun melepaskan jawatan kepada AAB.
    Semoga Allah melindungi Tun dan memberi kesihatan dan kekuatan untuk Tun menyumbang semula dalam usaha pembangunan Negara.
    JIKA SAYA PERDANA MENTERI.
    1.Saya akan mengujudkan satu ROYAL COMMISSION untuk mengkaji semula
    Plan Induk Tun Abdul Razak selepas May 13 1969 yang telah diterima
    pakai demi perpaduan kaum. Kajian ini hendaklah berpegang kepada
    Perjanjian Asal untuk mencapai Kemerdekaan.
    Sebab: Inilah issue yang telah di timbulkan yang menyebabkan
    sengketa kaum sekarang.
    2.Mengujudkan satu Majlis membuat AUDIT secara menyeluruh dan
    terperinci untuk melaporkan tahap kedudukan sebenar pencapaian
    Perancangan asal NEP.
    Sebab : Membantu Royal Commission membuat laporan berasaskan
    kepada facta terkini.
    3.Menubuhkan Badan Bertindak untuk melaksanakan perancangan semula
    cadangan Royal Commission yang telah di rumuskan dan di luluskan
    olih Parliment dan dipersetujui olih Majlis Raja Raja dan DYMM
    Yang di Pertuan Agong.
    4.Memperkukuhkan Pertahanan Negara dan mengenal pasti musuh sebenar
    yang ingin nmenyekat kemajuan Negara samada kuasa luar atau anasir
    dalaman.
    Menggariskan sempadan untuk menolak musuh kuasa luar dan
    mencungkil anasir dalaman ” musuh dalam selimut”.
    Merombak undang undang sebagai pertahanan dari Global
    Manipulation dan memastikan Sumber dan Asset Negara tidak terlepas
    atau dijajah olih musuh Negara.
    5.Mencagangkan, satu Bangsa, satu Bahasa, satu Budaya, satu Ugama(?)
    untuk mengujudkan semangat Nationalist untuk semua Rakyat.
    Megapa perlu mencadangkan perkara yang tidak masuk akal ?
    Untuk menyedarkan semua Rakyat bahawa kita semua adalah RACIST
    by nature. Jika tidak mahu menilaikan keperluan Perpaduan kaum
    dan menghormati kesejahteraan dan aman damai, mungkin kita
    perlu menimbangkan cadangan ini supaya ujud ” one for all, all
    for one”.
    Saya mendoakan supaya Tun di terima olih UMNO secara ikhlas dan
    rela hati demi untuk membantu meleraikan sebelum simpul terikat
    mati.

  292. waris melayu Sep 11,2008 2:34 PM

    Y. Amat Berbhg Tun,
    Saya amat menyanjung jasa-jasa Tun selama ini termasuk menyingkirkan DSAI dari kerajaan. Beliau sememangnya seorang yang gila jawatan dan nak jadi PM. Sebagai ketua pembangkang, DSAI dah jadik PM dan tak perlu tunggu 16hb sebab beliau PM kabinet bayangan. Saya harap Tun dapat menerangkan kepada rakyat, apa tugas ketua pembangkang dan apa dia kabinet bayangan. DSAI tak berani nak umum kabinet bayangan PR sebab kalau beliau umum, rakyat takkan sokong PR lagi. Harap Tun boleh bagi penerangan tentang kabinet bayangan. Terima kasih.

  293. lampu basikal Sep 11,2008 2:34 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun
    Tun I for one know that you are the most brilliant leader among the previous and of cause the current premier. I just wanna wish you a warm welcome back to UMNO. Please Tun we have to fight within UMNO at all cause to bring back the glory days of the Malay dignity. I just hope that the Malays will reunite and take charge of BN with full pride and honour.
    Well, Tun maybe ramadhan will bring us the Malays and moslems together. In the month of ramadhan only can miracle happens. Aminnn
    PS: forget about anuwar and his dreams of becoming the prime minister.
    Come 16 sept It won’t happen because we the rakyat are not convince.
    Hidup Tun Dr Mahathir and may Allah bless us all. Aminnnn.

  294. qho' dal ha Sep 11,2008 2:31 PM

    Akum Ayahanda Tun
    Selamat Kembali ke UMNO dan teruskan Perjuangan untuk Agama Bangsa dan Negara. Selamatkanlah negara dan bangsa mu yang dah LELAH akibat pemimpin LEMAH.
    Jika Umno kuat seperti dulu, maka tiada perkara yang berlaku sekarang akan berlaku
    Pada pandangan saya, Kebanyakan Pemimpin sekarang hanya pentingkan kekayaan sendiri sehingga meraka mencari kekayaan itu dan mengharapkan segala perjalanan urusan harian rakyat dapat dijalankan dengan sendirinya atau dengan “remote”.
    Takut pada Kuasa Besar satu kelemahan ketara pemimpin sekarang, Menjaga imej sendiri atau Keperluan menjatuhkan Imej orang yang mereka tidak suka adalah satu trend dalam UMNO terutama bagi merka yang berkuasa keatas sumber kewangan
    Mengenai tindakan keatas Datuk Ahmad Ismail, Mengapa tiada tindakan kepada Majlis Peguam yang terang2 mempersoalkan Hak orang melayu dan Islam malah Menteri dan erdana menteri tak halang pun forum tersebut

  295. jelata Sep 11,2008 2:26 PM

    to Asus:
    sangupkah u tengok umat melayu layu…dan terpaku….kalo sanggup… u bukan nya negarawan. tp penakut..
    tapi tun dia berani dan tak nak umat melayu layu dan diperbodohkan oleh org melayu sendiri dan org2 CnI.. itu lah pengorbanan namanya.
    Wahai…TUn.. teruskan perjuangan mu….janji umat melayu MAJU n DITAKUTI serta diGERUNI….

  296. coboyz Sep 11,2008 2:24 PM

    Selamat sejahtera Tun,
    Kalau benar Tun akan masuk UMNO, kalau pun sebelum ini Tun beri syarat akan masuk setelah AAB keluar, still saya akan beri sokongan, kerana selama ini semasa Tun memerintah saya amat yakin bahwa segala tindak-tanduk Tun PASTI ada sebab-musabab yang tertentu yang hanya Tun sendiri yang tahu. Selalunya ia akan mengejutkan ramai orang… Saya pasti ia akan berulang lagi… Am willing to wait & see…
    Nanti semua orang akan kata…Ye tak ya ….kenapa kita tak terfikir ek ?
    p/s : Memang masih ramai org melayu kita yang suka di “spoon-feed”..buat apa nak melenting? Berubahlah ! Kita boleh , bukan tak boleh. Biar, dalam pada mereka anggap kita gentar bersaing, kita berusaha dan terus tinggalkan mereka dengan tanggapan mereka.Jangan di layan mereka ini, sahut cabaran mereka!!!!
    p/s 2 : Siapa-siapa yang kutuk Tun Mahathir punya jasa dan tindak-tanduk terkini beliau, memang org yang tak berapa cerdik berfikir dan tak tahu menilai antara CERDIK, PANDAI, BIJAK & BISTARI.
    p/s 3 : Orang yang pandai selalunya menghormati orang lain dari segi bahasa yang di gunakan….ADA SESIAPA PERNAH NAMPAK TUN CAKAP KASAR ATAU MAKI ORANG SEMASA JADI PM DULU ?
    ORANG MELAYU SEMUA….IRRESPECTIVE OF YOUR STATUS. INGATLAH, ORANG MELAYU ADA BANYAK BAHASA. SALAH SATUNYA ADALAH BERBUDI BAHASA.
    DAN LAGI SATU… TAK RETI BAHASA..
    WASALAM TUN..

  297. drN Sep 11,2008 2:22 PM

    Asaalamualaikum Dear Tun yang dimuliakan,
    When you decide to leave Umno recently, it appears as if you want to encourage others to do the same among Umno members, especially the MP, so that some pressure be placed upon Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to resigned.Your plan does not seem to work as Malays generally does not like to go against their leaders. Malays like to follow and they do very well when they have a very good leader.When they have weak leader like Dato Seri Abdullah, the Malays simply follow and willingly submit. They dare not to talk openly against their leader. To solve the problem ,you should come back to Umno as you did now, and temporarily you take over the presidency of Umno . In this Dec you should challenge Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi as the President of Umno. After that you should find someone a Malay man, younger,dynamic,brave, long experience in leading a movement,intelligent,taqwa and he love and respect you ,to become the Prime Minister and you as the Adviser to the Prime Minister.When you do this Allah will give all the rewards to you and forgive all you sins and you will die in peace. You have saved the nation and the Muslim. It is your choice.If you die now while Dato Abdullah Badawi is still the PM, you will have the share of the sins done by Dato Abdullah Badawi as you also play a significant role in choosing him as the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Allah love you and He give you the chance to repent and do good deeds before you die. In making the choice you should also consult pious religious person. Thank You,Wassallam

    Saw a pic of you berbuka puasa with the PM, DPM and Agong in the NST yesterday or the day before. Everyone looked ackward in the pic. It’d be interesting if you could tell us what transpired then. Did everyone at the table talk to each other or there was just a deafening silence…..

  299. zahir Sep 11,2008 2:17 PM

    Salam Tun dikasihi,
    Happy to hear you were joining UMNO.
    Hope you & co will bring positive changes to those negative.

  300. dell5red Sep 11,2008 2:17 PM

    Dear Tun,
    I’ve been checking this blog at least twice daily since its inception. I’ve read all the write-up and also laughed, felt disgusted, and admired most of the comments. I do this for your insights, one of Malaysia’s chosen sons, and also to understand the mood and thinking of my fellow citizens. I had never once inclined to actively participate in this blog. However, once this little mental joy of mine is being threathened, I have to act. Forgive me Tun,
    1. To ASUS, please… There are a lot of good movies now playing at the cinema. Just pick one. Or, just watch all the shows on TV. Guess “Akukah Tanggang” plays on TV9 suits you well. And LEAVE Tun and all of US alone. Legacy? How much does it worth? This superego attitude really got to go. How much have Malaysians achieved? Very little isn’t it? Vision 2020? 30% Equity of NEP program? So, selagi jasad dikandung badan, selagi tu la kena berjuang. We have to continue to struggle. Nabi pun suruh buat amal seperti nak mati esok dan berusaha seolah-olah nak hidup selamanya. Nak kata ASUS pilih adat, macam tak betul je. Pilih laluan agama pun macam jauh. Agaknya yang macam kena ikat bulan puasa ni kot…cepat bangga diri. Lebih elok kita usaha je. Buat yang elok-elok. Pendapat orang kalau ada fakta, ada nas eloklah juga diambil kira. Tapi kalau cakap ikut sedap mulut, kosong, satu billion umat tak suka pun takpe. Asalkan Allah suka, terlalu indah dah tu. Am I right, ASUS?
    2. Berkenaan ramai yang hantar message jenis-jenis ‘I yang pertama ke, hehehe’, ‘saya sokong Tun’ (penuh dengan puji-pujian tanpa ada satu bait ayat bagitau kenapa sokong), dan yang seangkatan dengannya, kalau boleh joinlah ASUS tengok cerita Tanggang tu. Banyak pengajaran. Lebih mulia daripada mengembek dalam kandang harimaukan? Masa tengah serius, janganlah potong dengan buat lawak. Naik bulu tengkukla…
    3. Berkenaan dengan yang asyik tanya Tun ‘why don’t you do something?’ rasanya dah banyak kali dijawab. So tak perlulah tanya lagi. Terbayang yang Tun depressed bila terpaksa baca banyak kali. I’m feeling the same way. Sekarang dunia dan Malaysia dalam keadaan yang tidak selesa. Semua orang perlu menyumbang. Kalau tak mampu pikul, ditopang-topangkan orang yang memikul tu pun mulia juga. Berilah pendapat, cara, teknik, laluan, sokongan (yang bermakna) atau apa sahaja. Bukankah kesejahteraan Malaysia yang kita sayang ni tanggungjawab kita semua? So kalau boleh, jadilah hero dalam keupayaan terbaik kita sebagai seorang individu. Bila semua individu berciri hero, secara kolektifnya nanti Negara tercinta ini juga cemerlang juga. As for Tun, everybody with functioning heart can hear your agony and scream for help. Just continue herding, and INSYAALLAH we will follow.
    4. Berkenaan sokongan atau tentangan yang melulu dan membabi buta. Saya selalu kagum dengan individu-individu tertentu yang boleh ada pegangan diri yang sebegitu menakjubkan walaupun ada hanya sekelumit fakta. Sanggup bermusuhan dengan sahabat-handai, bermasam muka dengan jiran-tetangga, tidur dengan tangan menggepal penumbuk dan sebagainya yang tidak elok. Contoh-contoh perbalahan:
    a. Kes Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim dengan pertuduhan liwat.
    b. Kes pembunuhan Altantuya dan komisen beratus juta.
    c. Kes salahguna kuasa dalam perlantikan hakim.
    d. Anggapan kelemahan Paklah dalam pengurusan negara dan menangani karenah dan tingkah laku anak menantunya.
    e. Segala macam yang lain. Banyak sangat, tak larat no…
    Teringin sangat nak tau, dari mana datang pemahamannya? Cerita bawaan penyangak mana? Bagaimana boleh percaya seakan setara kepastiannya dengan rukun Iman? Kalau sumber setakat cerita yang didengar dari mulut kawan atau bapak saudara, ketua kampung atau wakil rakyat juga ahli Parlimen, rasanya belum layak dianggap sebagai fakta. Kalau kata ustaz, tok bomoh, kawan yang nampaknya macam warak yang bagitau, perangai personaliti ni bagaimana pula? Boleh ke percaya bulat-bulat? Pastinya tak maksumkan? Takkan dah sanggup nak berjihad? MASYAALLAH… Ingatlah ye ada seorang Imam Besar satu mazhab yang kata, ikutlah ajarannya jika betul, yang tak betul janganla ikut. Dia pun takut salah buat penafsiran, salah buat penilaian. Ini takat, baca tabloid, tu pun sempat kilas tajuknya sebab dah mahal nak beli, dah berani buat kesimpulan agung. Malu weh.
    Tapi sebagai orang yang memang memantau perkara tersebut seperti Tun dahulu ketika menjadi Perdana Menteri, Paklah Perdana Menteri sekarang, empunya diri Dato’ Seri Najib, empunya diri Dato’ Seri Anwar, hakim-hakim yang terlibat, pegawai polis, BPR etc yang terlibat, wajar juga mempunyai pendapat yang sanggup diperjuangkan sebegitu sekali. Sebabnya mereka ini yang melaluinya sendiri. Nampak dengan mata kepala sendiri, dengar dengan telinga sendiri, siasatan yang dilakukan sendiri.
    Namun begitu, apabila untuk satu kes yang sama, tetapi terdapat dua versi yang amat bertentangan, maka para penyokong juga masyarakat malaysia, tidak seharusnya membuta-tuli untuk percaya. Kerana pastinya salah satu pihak telah berbohong, dan pembohongan itu MUNGKIN dilakukan oleh pihak yang kita sokong. Dalam keadaan yang mana masyarakat Malaysia sedang meragui ketelusan polis, keadilan hakim-hakim, ketulusan BPR dan Suruhanjaya-Suruhanjaya yang sentiasa ditubuhkan, maka beradalah kita dalam dilema. Kerana segala hasil siasatan menimbulkan kecurigaan, segala keputusan mahkamah dirisaukan sudah ditetapkan, maka yang tinggal hanyalah tunggu ketika di Padang Masyar nanti untuk mendapat penjelasan sewajarnya. Cuma pada masa tu, kita pula dah tak larat nak ambil tahu lagi sebab tengah sibuk disiksa kerana dosa-dosa yang berlambak kita lakukan. Sayugia, penyelesaiannya adalah dengan menjadi orang baik: jangan mengumpat, jangan memfitnah, jangan mengambil yang bukan hak, jangan salahgunakan kuasa, jangan serba-serbi yang tak elok. Masa di padang Masyar nanti barulah boleh fokus tengok repeats dan reruns. (Sebenarnya, dengan tidak membuat perkara-perkara ynag negatif disebutkan tadi, adalah diharapkan keyakinan terhadap sistem keadilan di negara tercinta ini kembali pulih, dan Malaysia boleh menjadi negara keadilan contoh lebih daripada Switzerland dll tu).
    6. Berkenaan dengan sifat toleransi dan kemuafatan masyarakat berbilang bangsa, banyak perkara yang kita pandang remeh tapi sebenarnya membawa kesan prasangka yang menebal. Contohnya:
    a. Azan menggunakan speaker dengan sepuas hati (Juga bunyi loceng yang terlalu kuat dan lama (biasanya sehingga azan berhenti, plus 2 minit) dan juga bau setanggi yang melemaskan penduduk satu tangga condo). Yang menariknya di dalam surau ada satu speaker yang merdu je bunyinya, tapi dibumbung ada 3 speaker yang boleh guna untuk amaran serangan bom daripada kapal terbang Jepun. Ada sesiapa berani menegur minta diperlahankan kerana anak kecil umur 2 minggu tersentak menangis?
    Tak berani… kerana:
    1.Takut dikatakan sesat dan tak Islamic,
    2.Dituduh tidak menyokong usaha pentarbiahan agama
    3.Dicop sebagai dayus kerana tidak berani menegakkan hak.
    Perlu diingat bahawa dakwah Islam oleh pejuang-pejuang Islam terdahulu berjaya menjadikan 1/5 penduduk dunia memeluk kesucian Islam tanpa penggunaan pembesar suara. Dakwah dilakukan secara hikmah. Memberi contoh yang baik, dan menjaga tingkah laku. Bukan dengan melaungkan azan sekuat hati sebagai tanda hak, keberanian, dan dengan secara automatiknya menimbulkan detik di hati ‘inconsideratenye penganut agama ni!’ Alangkah indahnya jika setiap penganut agama yang berbeza-beza ni jika dapat berusaha menjadi lebih ulamak dalam agama mereka masing-masing. Pastinya setiap ugama menggalakkan penganutnya berkelakuan baik. Bila dah ‘baik'(although subjective) akhlaknya, senanglah nak berbincang dengan penuh martabat. Bila boleh berbincang, bolehlah dicarikan penyelesaiannya. Bukan menggambarkan dengan cara bila mampu buat kelakuan yang tak mengendahkan orang lain, kita adalah kuat, dan kuat itu membuktikan kebenaran, maka anutilah agamaku barulah boleh sama-sama benar. Sigh…
    b. Nampak simple tapi kita kena belajar untuk lebih peka dalam menjaga sensitiviti antara kaum. Contohnya taklah salah sekiranya yang muda memanggil yang telah berumur daripada bangsa lain dengan panggilan manis penuh hormat ‘pakcik.’ Tak perlulah nak buktikan kemampuan berbahasa dengan memanggil ‘ane’ atau ‘apek’ kerana pangilan tersebut, secara tradisi singkat masyarakat majmuk Malaysia, telah dikaitkan secara negatif dengan mereka. Juga bila berbual mesra bersama rakan-rakan di mana-mana restoran atau kedai mamak, janganlah suka mengata-ngata bangsa lain. Secara tabiinye, bunyi perkataan dapat merentasi jarak 2 kaki menyingah ke telinga pelanggan lain yang sebangsa dengan yang diperkatakan itu. Juga, sekiranya nak dirahsiakan dengan perkataan dalam bahasa ibunda, tidak pastinya akan berjaya. Antara jasa Kementerian Penerangan dan RTM adalah penayangan cerita Hindi, Tamil, Kantonis dan Mandarin sejak mencapai kemerdekaan. Penerapan selama 51 tahun, sedikit-sebanyak telah melekat di hati, terutamanya perkataan-perkataan yang ‘murni’ itu.
    (Akan disambung kemudian nanti sekiranya membawa faedah. Panjang sangat, dah penat dan sentiasa menginsafi ini blog Tun. Ampun)

    Assalamualaikum w.b.t,
    What I could see, all these racial issues was purposely triggered by DSAI to against DSAAB leadership and at the same time to break up BN into pieces as the cabinet is clearly weakening. Very clear statement in the past, he himself wants to abolish the DEB which the DAP is always dreamt off. DSAAB just don’t realize that he has been fooling around by DSAI in order to pull him down and the rest of the cabinets. More worst when he always prefer to remain speechless. He should be pro active rather then always becoming a fireman. Yes I agree with you TUN, DSAAB is no match to DSAI.
    Selamat Berbuka Puasa to all your family.

    Why everything are because of current PM? Why most of ~22 million Malaysia population blame the cuurent PM only? Sit and everyday blame the PM and wait and wish Tun Mahathir may help.. and hope the problem will solve it by itself if not by someone else but not they themselves. Really SAD to see such culture in a very high potential land – Malaysia!
    Please look and think probably.. COMPARING the ~22 million Malaysia population who might not working hard and right VS the current PM whom everybody are accusing him for not working hard and right.. obviously! you can see the logic of it..
    SO, NOW, in terms of number or manpower, who has greater effect on the problems of country? Who is more likely to make those problems we see nowaday? and, who should be responsible more to solve the problem indeed? last, who can settle the problem? It is the Malaysians, the citizen! ..who are (will be) willing to work hard and right.
    Mentality and attitude have to be right! Anyway, I doubt if anybody knows what is right?

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Selamat Berpuasa saya ucapkan buat Tun. Saya berharap kehadiran Tun dalam UMNO dapat memulihkan semula segala masalah yang timbul sejak Pak Lah jadi PM. Keadaan politik di malaysia kini makin kalut dan membimbangkan rakyat malaysia. Memang, mungkin ada yang akan mengkritik keputusan yang Tun buat, tetapi saya tidak kisah kerana saya tahu dan yakin dengan kebolehan Tun untuk mengembalikan kepercayaan rakyat malaysia terhadap BN. Sekian, wassalam.

    IN TODAYS NST EDITION, 11 SEPT 08, I FIND THE REPORTED REMARKS OF THE MCA CHIEF VERY REMARKABLE. (PAGE 2) ONG: SACRED RIGHT. THE PUNISHMENT METED BY UMNO ON D. AHMAD ISMAIL,… IS A LESSON TO ALL, THAT EVERY MALAYSIAN COMMUNITYS RIGHT TO CITIZEN SHIPCANNOT BE QUESTIONED AND CHALLENGED…IT WAS FURTHER REPORTED THAT THE CHIEF HOPEDTHAT SUCH RACIST ACTIONS WILL NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF THE DAY. HE REMINDS THAT EVERY RACIAL COMMUNITYS RIGHT TO CITIZENSHIP IS SACRED AND HE WILL NOT TOLERATE OR FORGIVE ANYONE WHO QUESTION THIS ISSUE. HE WENT ON…UMNO CROSSED THE LINE ON THIS ISSUE LATELY AND WE HAVE TAKEN THEM TO TASK!!
    WHY I SAY REMARKABLE?? FIRSTLY, HE HAS SHOWN HE HAS CHAMPIONED HIS MEMBERS CAUSE AND GOT RESULTS, I.E. REPRIMANDED UMNO.
    SECONDLY, UPHELD ONE OF THE CLAUSES OF THE SOCIAL CONTRACT WHICH BENEFITS HIS MEMBERS.
    WELL DONE.
    NOW, SOMEBODY POWERFUL AND WITH AUTHORITY IN UMNO SHOULD DO THE SAME THING FOR ITS MEMBERS. FIRSTLY, PERHAPS REMIND ALL, THAT WE CANT SELECT AND CHOOSE TO DEFEND CLAUSES, WHICH BENEFITS OUR MEMBERS ONLY. THE SOCIAL CONTRACT MUST BE READ AND APPLIED IN TOTAL. MALAY SPECIAL RIGHTS, MALAY LANGUAGE, ISLAM , AND THE MALAY RULERS RIGHTS MUST BE ACCEPTED, NOT RIDICULED AND QUESTIONED, WHILST MALAYS ACCEPT OTHER COMMUNITYS RIGHT TO CITIZEN SHIP.
    I THINK ALL CLAUSES ARE…S A C R E D…
    SO PLEASE UMNO STAND UP AND TAKE THEM TO TASK TOO.!!!
    WHAT IS STRANGE IS, WHEN A MEMBER OF A MAJORITY PARTNER DOES SOMETHING OFF TANGENT TO THE SOCIAL CONTRACT UMNO GETS VICIOUSLY CRITICISED. ON THE CONTRARY IF OTHERS DO THE SAME UMNO FORGIVES AND FORGET. WHY??
    IS UMNO EXPECTED TO BE HOLIER THAN OUR COALTION PARTNERS??
    TIME FOR UMNO TO RETHINK, OTHERWISE UMNO WILL BE PUSHED AROUND, AND THATS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    Dear Tun & fellow readers,
    During March 08, i considered myself as liberal malays so i vote for a change as i believed everybody regardless of race should get equal rights as citizen of malaysia. i vote for a change to put a balance opposition voice in parliament to have a balance and check up on existing ruling government. These opposition voice suppose to ensure government really doing their work governing the rakyat, eliminate corruption and prosper the country. With the opposition and government being given their actual role after March 8, it should lead our country to much greater heights and properity. And i belived majority of malaysian who voted for change during the election are having the same feeling as me.
    Its been 6 months after the so called change that rakyat expected but instead of doing their responsibility as govt and opposition the only things that i can see now its the struggle to remain in power and to get power. Are these the kind of leaders that malaysians need. And now all this politicians are dragging us to involve in race sentiments.
    After 6 months seeing our country political development, i’m changing from malay liberal to become one of those malay & young professionals that tun is saying after what have happen so far. So are most of my Malay friends. We don’t mind if you say you want equal rights and opportunity in this great country but when you start questioning our rights as Islam (like the so called intelligent people in Bar Council,the YB who go to the Mosque before subuh prayer in Selangor asking the imam not to use speaker for the Azan in Shah Alam where majority people leaving there are Muslims(read utusan 10/9/08)), I said you all playing with fire. And know everybody talking about racist remarks, even Tun, our great leader has been accused as racist after one of his posting.
    MELAYU DI AJAR UNTUK BERSOPAN SESAMA MASYARAKAT, ISLAM MENGAJAR MANUSIA MENERIMA PERBEDAAN SETIAP INSAN, HANYA IMAN YANG MEMBEZAKAN MANUSIA ITU DI SISI ALLAH.
    So, why other race can talk and critize malay and islam on every aspect but when we bring up certain issues regarding non malay we are labelled as racist.
    I do agree with some of the opinion here that something really wrong with our education system. We should abolished vernacular school and only remain sekolah kebangsaan. This should implement the spirit of nasionalisme and socialisme among different race. And every citizen who wants to live in malaysia and be granted citizenship should learn and respect each other differences and sensitivities.
    Tun, cannot wait for u to come back to UMNO and make the necessary change and i’m hoping for a nearer general election so that i can make a better change for the benefit of my race & religion.
    WISH U GOOD HEALTH TUN. SEMUGA DIPANJANGKAN UMUR UNTUK TERUS BERBAKTI.

  307. STEELPLAYER Sep 11,2008 1:55 PM

    hi Tun;
    Good day. I am actualy working in steel mills industry. In Malaysia as on today we have about 5 big steel mills which are currently struggling to survive due to uncertainty in Malaysia economic and more or less all this caused by the power struggling between UMNO and PKR.
    To me all this nonsense should be stopped or else we also will die soon.
    Best Regards;
    Steel Player.

  308. haha Sep 11,2008 1:51 PM

    Dear Tun,
    The problem is non-Malays totally rejected the social contract.
    They reject this through a political party and lawyers organisation.
    They not only want citizenship but they want all. No want can guarantee that non-Malays wont repeat this equality to everbody demand. First they came to cari makan, now they want to rule. See Singapore and Penang what had happened?. The only thing that can preserve our unity and harmony is…….to question SOCIAL CONTRACT is a crime with severe punishment. Dear Tun, only you can do this, while there is still time. I dont think others have the gut. By doing this we can hope the Malays and Non-Malays continue to build a happy Malaysia.

    Assalamu’alaikum Tok Det..
    Smoga diberi kesihatan yg t’baik drpd Allah S.W.T.. Amin..
    Tok Det, first of all, izinkan sy nak menulis dgn pjg lebar skit..
    Sy betul2 tak paham laa dgn org2 yg m’persoalkan kenapa Tok Det join UMNO balik… Just remember this..
    “IF WE CAN’T BEAT THEM, JOIN THEM!”
    Bg sy tak ada masalah dgn ‘badang mkn muntah sndiri’ ke.. ‘dah ludah jilat balik’ ke… ‘flip flop’ ke.. apa ke… Masalah yg kita hadapi skrg adalah MASALAH NEGARA. Dan pd pendapat sy, ToK Det sbg org yg paling b’pengalaman m’tadbir negara dgn SUKSES, sy tak nampak pun apa masalah yg timbul kalau Tok Det mengeksperimen sendiri cara yg paling t’baik utk nak redakan masalah2 yg kita hadapi skrg.. Suka hati laa nak keluar party ke, masuk party ke, yg nak pi dok pikiaq pasai badang makan muntah tu pasai apa.. la nie bkn pasai badang, pasai NEGARA!
    dan sy jugak tak paham sgt dgn ORANG2 [sy tak ingat nickname diorg kat bwh nie] yg suruh Tok Det berehat laa, jgn masuk campur laa, biarkan Pak Lah m’tadbir dgn cara dia sndiri laa… sy tak paham dgn mereka! Senang pikir camnie laa..
    Sepjg 22thn pemerintahan TDM, yg sy tahu :
    1) TDM dh keluarkan Malaysia drpd senarai 3rd world country
    2) TDM bapa kemodenan Malaysia
    3) TDM byk tarik investor dr luar negara utk mlabur n bikin bisness kat Malaysia nie, skali gus m’jana eco. negara
    4) TDM dgn slumbernya pi sound kat George Soros masa eco. crisis thn 1997-1998 [masa tu sy form 3,sy ingat lg!] dlu, padahal pemimpin2 negara jiran kita dlu pun bengang gak kat si Soros tu, tp smua dok diammm jer mcm tikuih mondok..piirahh! coward!!
    5) TDM brani b’suara di peringkat antarabangsa, mengutuk barat dgn tindakan kejam,ganas,bodoh,bodoh sombong,melulu,tak adil,discimination,etc.,etc., diorg tu.. [tabik spring kat Tok Det sy!! sy ANTI-US wpun keja dgn co. US.. hihi.. tak boleh nak buat apa laa Tok Det..sy b’kerja demi eco. negara]
    6) Bush bodo tu pun takut dgn TDM! Bkn mcm DSAI,tali barut Amerika!! Ptuihh!!
    7) Swaktu TDM jd PM,keadaan negara kita dlu aman harmoni.. Tak ada pun bising2 pasal kaum..smua kaum hormat pd kaum lain..tak ada org yg brani wat p’bincangan terbuka pasal isu2 sensitif ke, nak m’permain2kan kedaulatan negara ke.. TAK ADA!!
    8) TDM = DASAR PANDANG KE TIMUR [Lg skali tabik spring kat Tok Det sy..!!]
    7) Dan lain2 perkara sama ada yg sy tahu tp lupa nak nyatakan [sbb t’lalu byk yg TDM sumbangkan kat Malaysia] ataupun yg sy tak tau tp bloggers smua tahu..
    Jadi….. Kepada bloggers2 yg suruh TDM jgn msuk campur/berehat/etc. tuuu.. Baca balik smua listing yg sy buat kat atas tu, then PIKIR-PIKIR kan laa… COME TO THINK OF IT.. SANGGUP KE TUN DR. MAHATHIR MELIHAT MALAYSIA KITA SKRG INI HANCUR???
    Tok Det,
    Jaga diri baik2… Jaga kesihatan baik2… Raya nanti jaga makan dan minum… Smoga Tok Det dan keluarga dilimpahi dgn rahmat Allah S.W.T dan teruskan perjuangan yg belum selesai.. Allahu akhbar!!
    Sayalah..

    hello!!! if Tun just kept quiet and let AAB do whatever he wanted to, then who else is going to correct those mistakes AAB made? if everyone acts just the way you said for their own names, prides, sakes & whatever it is, then there’s nobody left to fight for our rights..tun is doing the best thing, by letting his thoughts to be heard by all, whether you want to take it in a positive way or otherwise, let your brain level decides it…

    PENAMPAR BUAT SEMUA ORANG MELAYU!!
    Melihat keputusan hukuman yang diambil PAK LAH terhadap Ahmad Ismail kelmarin umpama satu penampar buat ORANG MELAYU.
    Jujurnya saya tidak menyokong apa yang diperkatakan Ahmad Ismail, tetapi ingin saya nyatakan di sini kes Ahmad Ismail yang dikatakan berbaur perkauman tidak diadili seadil-adilnya sebagaimana kes-kes perkauman yang berlaku sebelum ini seperti kes Ronnie Liu, Wee Meng Chee, Hindraf dan sebagainya.
    Tindakan diambil ke atas seorang pemimpin MELAYU yang dikatakan ‘racist’ sedang kes-kes sebelum ini yang berlaku di kalangan pemimpin BUKAN MELAYU tidak diperbesarkan atau tidak pernah pun soal ‘racist’ diungkapkan.
    Adakah ini kerana ORANG MELAYU adalah kaum pribumi atau bumiputra TANAH MELAYU sebelumnya atau MALAYSIA amnya?
    Persoalan saya mengapa kes Ahmad Ismail tidak diselidik dari segi kebenaran ucapan, teks, video dan sebagainya sebagaimana yang dikatakannya apabila beliau mempertahankan diri dengan mengatakan ucpannya adalah berkenaan soal pra-kemerdekaan?
    Mengapa tidak ada sebarang kajian mengenai kebenaran ucapan Ahmad Ismail dan wartawan Sin Chew Daily, Tan Hoon Cheng, orang pertama melaporkan berita tersebut tidak disoal siasat terlebih dahulu?
    Mengapa pula pemimpin-pemimpin dari kaum Cina terutamanya dari parti Gerakan seolah-olah melompat kerana terus mendesak menuntut permohonan maaf tanpa sebarang usul selidik?
    Dan mengapa PERDANA MENTERI MALAYSIA iaitu PAK LAH turut melompat atas desakan,gesaan dan tuntutan dari kaum bukan Melayu?
    Hakikatnya, PAK LAH yang memberi ruang lebih luas kebebasan bersuara. Kini beliau telah terperangkap di atas polisi yang beliau laksanakan. PAK LAH tidak dapat mengekang atau mengawal bentuk pemerintahannya malah mengambil tindakan atas desakan pihak ketiga. Samalah kesnya dengan kes Tun Salleh Abbas yang mendapat bayaran ex-gratia atas desakan Majlis Peguam.
    Maka akan bertambah banyak lagi kes yang bakal dilihat diputuskan PAK LAH bagi memuaskan hati pihak ketiga dan menyelesaikan masalah yang berpunca dari PAK LAH sendiri.
    Hukuman ke atas Ahmad Ismail adalah bukti kelemahan sistem pentadbiran yang digunapakai PAK LAH.
    Bagi saya sekarang ‘BERTINDAK ATAS DESAKAN’ dan ‘MERAWAT BUKANNYA MENCEGAH’ adalah trademark sistem pemerintahan PAK LAH.
    Satu soalan, apakah PAK LAH masih relevan sebagai PERDANA MENTERI MALAYSIA?

    ASSALAMUALAIKUM WARAHMATULLAH HI TAALA WABAROKATUH
    Yang di sayangi lagi di hormati Ayahanda Tun dan Bonda Siti Hasmah
    Anakanda tumpang lalu
    Telah benarlah atas apa yang ayahanda katakan.”SOCIAL CONTRACT MUST BE UPHOLD”.Ini adalah sangat perlu demi untuk KEHARMONIAN DAN KEDAMAIAN DALAM NEGARA MALAYSIA YANG RAKYAT NYA BERBILANG KAUM.
    Dalam banyak2 bangsa di dunia ini,hanya bangsa melayu lah yang mempunyai KEMULIAN HATI DAN KEBERSIHAN JIWA yang sebenar2 nya.Ini adalah kerana KEMULIAN HATI DAN KEBERSIHAN JIWA adalah sesuatu yang kita tidak dapat belajar bagaimana untuk mendapatkan nya TETAPI IA NYA ADALAH ANUGERAH DARI ALLAH SWT KEPADA BANGSA MELAYU WALAU PUN TIDAK KESELURUHAN NYA DAPAT MENGAMALKAN NYA.
    KEMULIAAN JIWA DAN KEBERSIHAN HATI ADALAH BERSANGKUTAN DENGAN AGAMA ISLAM.HANYA DI DALAM ISLAM SAHAJA YANG MEMPUNYAI BERBAGAI2 PERATURAN2 KETAT YANG WAJIB DI PATUHI DEMI KELANGSUNGAN HIDUP YANG BAIK,MURNI DAN MENGHORMATI KAUM2 LAIN BERBANDING DENGAN AGAMA2 LAIN DI DUNIA INI.Dan majotriti yang berbangsa melayu adalah berugama islam.Walaubagaimana pun ada individu2 dari kamu lain yang mempunyai KEBESARAN JIWA INI kerena pemberian olih ALLAH SWT bukan lah kepada melayu,cina atau india tetapi adalah kepada MAKHLUK2 NYA dan apa2 juga bangsa di dunia ini adalah MAHKLUK ALLAH SWT.
    Kita boleh lihat pada 3 contoh:
    a) 3 orang ahli politik – Melayu,Cina dan India- duduk semeja ber
    bincang hal2 politik – Apa yang mereka bincangkan?,apa pula
    kemahuan dan perasaan masing2 waktu itu?
    b) 3 orang ahli perniagaan-Mmelayu,Cina dan India- duduk semeja
    berbincang hal2 perniagaan -Apa yang mereka bincangkan?,apa
    pula kemahuan dan perasaan masing2 waktu itu?
    c) 3 orang biasa yang berugama islam -Melayu,Cina dan India-
    duduk di dalam mesjid -sama ada bersolat,makan berbuka puasa
    atau makan biasa atau bermuzakarah.- Apa yang mereka bincang
    kan waktu itu?.apa kemahuan dan perasaan mereka waktu itu?
    Dari 3 insiden itu ,dapat kah kita agakkan kumpulan manakah yang lebih harmoni? Perbincangan kumpulan manakah yang akan lebih di kuasai NAFSU ,SYAITAN,EGO DAN BERSIFAT PERKAUMAN?. Kalau bagi saya adalah kumpulan yang ketigalah yang lebih HARMONI.
    Seperti yang telah di ketahui umum,di dalam dunia yang serba luas ini hanya di Malaysia lah sahaja yang terdapat nya rakyat yang berbilang kaum yang dapat hidup dengan harmoni nya.Ini adalah di keranakan dengan ada nya KONTRAK SOSIAL yang terdapat di Malaysia dan telah di persetujui olih pemimpin2 kita yang terdahulu sebelum merdeka lagi.Kenapa kah kita belajar mengenai sejarah?.Kerana kita hendak mengetahui akan perkara dahulu dan belajar menghargai nya atas apa2 yang baik dan mengambil pelajaran dan nasihat di atas apa2 yang tidak baik.
    MAKA DENGAN ITU TIDAK DAPATKAH KITA MENGHARGAI AKAN KEMUAFAKATAN DAN KERJASAMNA OLIH PEMIMPIN2 KITA DAHULU YANG MENGUJUDKAN KONTRAK SOSIAL INI DEMI KEHARMONIAN NEGARA?.KENAPA DALAM BIDANG UNDANG2 KITA SELALU MENGAMBIL DARI APA YANG DI KATAKAN “RATIO DECIDENDI,OBITER DICTA”?KENAPA INI TIDAK BOLEH (KONTRAK SOSIAL)?
    Sudah selama beberapa kurun,beberapa generasi sehinggakan apabila berada di bawah kekuasaan ingeris (Colonial Rule) pun kita hidup dengan CURIGA MENCURIGAI ANTARA SATU SAMA LAIN DAN SEHINGGA BILAKAH PERASAAN CURIGA MENCURIGAI AKAN HABIS? BAGI SAYA HIDUP DENGAN MEMPERCAYAI ANTARA SATU SAMA LAIN,JUJUR,AMANAH DAN PEGANG JANJI ADALAH SESUATU YANG AMAT BAIK.
    Saya petik sedikit dari kata al marhum Tunku Abdul Rahman dalam buku nya VIEWPOINTS di bawah topik “OBSTACLES TO PROGRESS’
    “When we were on the threshold of Independence the Malayan people of ALL RACES WERE SUSPICIOUS OF ONE ANOTHER,because we lived in an age when they were under the paternal wing of the british,and that was how life had been for well nigh a cenrury or more”
    Bagi saya hanya ada 3 OPSYEN saja cara untuk HIDUP HARMONI sekira
    nya mahu menolak KONTRAK SOSIAL INI:
    1) Masuk ke dalam AGAMA ISLAM bagi The Non Malays dan yang bukan
    beragama Islam kerana hanya di dalam Islam sahaja KEHARMONIAN
    DAPAT TERJAMIN.Memang benar,di dalam Islam dan negara Islam
    pun ada persengketaan dan sebagaimana yang saya katakan di
    atas KEMULIAAN HATI DAN KEBERSIHAN JIWA adalah anugerah ALLAH
    SWT TETAPI UNTUK MENGAMALKAN NYA AMAT SUSAH SEKALI TETAPI
    SEKURANG2 NYA MASING2 TAHU BAHAWA ALLAH SWT LAH YANG MAHA
    MENENTUKAN SEGALA2 NYA.
    WILL THE NON MALAYS READY TO ACCEPT THIS CHALLENGE?
    2) Opsyen kedua ini kita kenalah mengikut saranan Ayahanda Tun
    Mahathir seperti yang di nyatakan nya dalam buku nya “DILEMA
    MELAYU ( THE MALAY DILEMMA) PADA BAB.5 -PENGERTIAN PERSAMAAN
    KAUM.
    “Persamaan di sisi undang2 tidak memberi apa-apa makna
    jika pemulauan di dalam bidang sosial dan ekonomi olih sesuatu
    kaum di buat dengan cara yang tidak tertakluk kepada undang2.
    “Kesemua individu sepatutnya di satu padukan kedalam
    masyarakat Malaysia dari segi ekonomi.sosial dan politik”
    “Persamaan bererti sesuatu kaum itu di terima olih setiap
    lapisan masyarakat dari segi sosial,ekonomi dan politik se
    hingga ia mencerminkan nisbah kaum nya di dalam jumlah
    penduduk yang terdiri dari berbagai kaum”
    “Tujuan di sebalik layanan ISTIMEWA bagi orang2 melayu
    bukanlah untuk meletakkan orang orang melayu ke suatu
    kedudukan yang SUPERIOR ,tetapi adalah untuk menyamakan
    kedudukan mereka dengan orang2 bukan melayu”.
    “Orang-orang melayu tidak merasa MEGAH dengan keistimewaan
    yang di lindungi undang undang,seperti perlindungan yang di
    beri kepada orang-orang cacat.Jika boleh mereka (orang melayu)
    ingin menyinkirkan keistimewaan ini,tetapi mereka terpaksa
    mengenepikan perasaan bangga di sebabkan kenyataan hidup yang
    tidak dapat di elakkan”
    JADI BAGI ORANG2 YANG MASIH MENGATAKAN TUN DR.MAHATHIR ADA
    LAH “RACIST” -SEJAK TAHUN 1970 LAGI TUN DR.MAHATHIR SUDAH
    MENYUARAKAN AKAN KEPENTINGAN HIDUP DALAM KEHARMONIAN DENGAN
    SYARAT MESTILAH ADA PERSAMAAN KAUM DARI SEGI EKONOMI,SOSIAL
    DAN POLITIK.
    IS IT DIFFICULT FOR US TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TUN DR.MAHATHIR
    WANT? – HARMONY,PEACE DAN STABILITY IN EVERY ASPECT FOR THE
    GOOD AND BENEFIT OF A COUNTRY CALLED MALAYSIA.
    3) Opsyen ketiga ini agak kasar sikit.
    DI HARAP2 KAN KIAMAT BERLAKU SEKARANG SUPAYA TIDAK ADA LAGI
    PERBEZAAN KAUM DAN KITA HANYA BERADA DI PADANG MASYAR SEBAGAI
    SEORANG MANUSIA DENGAN AMALAN MASING2 DAN BUKAN LAGI SEBAGAI
    MELAYU,CINA ,INDIA DAN LAIN2 BANGSA.
    (WALAU BAGAIMANA PUN KIAMAT HANYA BERLAKU DENGAN KETENTUAN
    ALLAH SWT DAN BUKAN URUSAN KITA UNTUK MENCAMPURI UURUSAN
    ALLAH SWT YANG MAHA ESA)
    Lagi satu saya TIDAK SETUJU dengan pemansuhan sekolah cina atau
    sekolah india. ” TULISAN ADALAH NYAWA PADA BUDAYA BANGSA DI DUNIA
    INI” TULISAN DAN BUDAYA TIDAKLAH “RACIST”TETAPI MANUSIA2 YANG
    BERSIFAT EGO,SOMBONG,BONGKAK,TAKABBUR DAN MENINGGI DIRI LAH YANG “RACIST”.
    Kalau kita hendak tahu siapa yang pendatang atau tidak.jangan tanya pada HISTORIAN TAPI TANYA LAH PADA ARCHEOLOGIST ATAU ANTHROPOLOGIST DAN MEREKA AKAN CERITAKAN TENTANG:”TEORI REGIONALISM- YANG BERLAKU 1 JUTA TAHUN DAHULU ATAU PUN TEORI OUT OF AFRICA YANG BERLAKU 80,000 TAHUN DAHULU”
    YANG ADA HANYA HOMO SAPIEN ATAU HOMO ERECTUS.TIDAK ADA MELAYU,CINA,INDIA ATAU LAIN2 BANGSA.TIDAK ADA BUMIPUTRA ATAU BUKAN BUMIPUTRA.RAJIN2 LAH MELAWAT KE LAWIN,BUKIT JAWA,TEMELONG,LEMBAH LENGGONG ,KOTA TAMPAN ATAU KE HULU PERAK UNTUK MENGETAHUI APAKAH
    NENEK MOYANG KITA YANG HIDUP 300,000 TAHUN DAHULU ITU ,MELAYU,CINA,INDIA ATAU LAIN2 BANGSA- KALAU TAK TAHU BOLEH TANYA PADA PROFESSOR ZURAINA MAJID DARI USM.
    AKU TIDAK PEDULI SAMA ADA AKU ORANG MELAYU KE,CINA KE .INDIA KE ATAU LAIN2 BANGSA KE TETAPI YANG AKU BETUL2 PEGANG ADALAH AGAMA ISLAM KU KERENA DI DALAM KUBUR NANTI AKU TIDAK DI TANYA APAKAH BANGSA KU TETAPI APAKAH AGAMA KU.
    Maaf Ayahanda Tun di atas coretan yang panjang ini dan semoga Ayahanda Tun dan Bonda selalu berada di dalam Limpahan Rahmat ALLAH SWT.

  313. Curious Sep 11,2008 1:37 PM

    Dear Tun.
    You mentioned in your book in “the Malay Dilemma”:
    “The Malay claim to being discriminated against in Malaysia is based not on laws but on the character and behaviour of the major racial groups in Malaysia. The Malays are spiritually inclined, tolerant and easy-going. The non-Malays and especially the Chinese are materialistic, aggressive and have an appetite for work. For equality to come about it is necessary that these strikingly contrasting races adjust to each other. Laws cannot do this. Only understanding, goodwill and time can. and understanding and goodwill can only come about in time if the meaning of racial equality is understood by all concerned.” Dr Mahathir b. Mohamad in The Malay Dilemma (1970:pg97).
    I am curious with what you mentioned in the book. It does break my heart that Malays have evoled? Is it because of the NEP? Corruption? You said that they are spiritually inclined, tolerant and easy-going. I dont think this is true anymore. “Spare the rod, and Spoil the child”. pretty much the malaysian discriminatory policy.
    Though, it is also true that there exist “Middle Child Syndrome”, where a neglected child will act strangely to attract attention. Interestingly enough, given all the attention that the Malays get, they still want more attention. What about the Chinese and Indians?
    I personally feel that you are to blame for some aspects of this, introducing discriminatory policies, that are based on races. You know this is not precise, inaccurate, and you know from the beginning that this will eventually happen. You know that this would hurt the other races. Still, I am not sure whether you regret this at all! Overall, the economy has more equality now, but policies targetted at races, rather than income levels is only a temporary solution. You are a smart man. You know this!
    However, you are still proven to be the best leader! My support is with you. But sometimes my heart hurts when I see responses like what you have posted up.

    Salam tun,
    Ntah lah..pak lah saya rasa tak nak turun…even rakyat dh reject ataupun berlaku byk masalah dlm negara…
    Matlamat utama pak lah menjadi perdana menteri mungkin disebabkan faktor kemewahan hidup dan kekuasaan. Sebab itu lah segala kemelut dalam negara ini tidak diendahkan nya. Malah dia cuba menipu rakyat dengan cara menutup perkara-perkara yang tidak elok jika didengar rakyat berkenaan kerajaan skrg.
    Selagi pak lah berkuasa, najib akan menjadi yes bos… So boleh buat kesimpulan maybe najib juga akan menjadi seorang pemimpin yang tidak baik kelak…

    Selamat kembali kepada UMNO.Inilah masa yang sesuai untuk Tun membetulkan keadaan.Isu panas seperti Dato Ahmad, DSAI dengan cita-cita 16 Septembernya dan yang terbaru dari Panglima ATM sendiri yang mahu semua pihak berhenti dari membangkitkan isu perkauman sememangnya perlu diambil serius.
    Jika kerajaan yang ada sekarang tidak terlalu telus atau pun LURUS BENDUL, maka tidak ada pihak yang berani CROSSING THE BORDER LINE.
    Tolong lah Tun.Buatlah sesuatu sebelum keadaan mnjai idak terkawal.

    I truly believe that our country stability is depend on malays unity and malay leadership due to various reasons, non-malay should not questioning neither touch about our right or social contract. What happen if malay questioning non-malay rights? I wish racial tension will not happen in our country anymore. To non-malays, pls understand and accept the historical facts. Maybe we should promote the malaysia constitution at all levels (including at primary scholl), so that everybody is understood.

    Salam Sejahtera Tun,
    1. Your intention to come back to UMNO is the much needed catalyst to further strengthen Malay, UMNO, BN and Nation unity as a whole.
    2. I am glad that there are current leaders who are more than willing to show and pay so much respect, humility and appreciation to the previous leaders like you. Hopefully they will start to listen something good from the elders and not to let it fall again to deaf ears.
    3. Harap melayu yang mudah lupa, mudah pula ingat kembali.
    Good day sir!

    the truth is to reject pak lah to save UMNO. Its the most evident solution as per todate.

  322. Ridzuan Sep 11,2008 1:13 PM

    Salam Tun,
    1. Many people are wondering why Tun re-joined UMNO. My perceptions are:
    a) To have a direct and maybe final fight with the stupid people in the current government. Indirect fight through blogs seems inefficient and ineffective. The stupid people in the current government are too dumb to be acknowledged and learned about the needs of rakyat. It is about time that Tun has to imply different strategy.
    b) This direct strategy will be executed as follows: Tun will form a team. The team will be leaded by Tun and mainly supported by TS Muhyiddin, DS Rais Yatim and maybe Tengku Razaleigh. The second level supporters will be DS Mukhriz, DS Khir, and other state representatives especially from Perak, Penang and Kedah.
    c) The team members will elect Tun as the candidate for UMNO President in the UMNO General Election this December. Tun will have a direct contest with the current stupid UMNO leader.
    d) If Tun win this competition, Tun will not awarded himself as a president, but will select TS Muhyiddin instead. TS Muhyiddin will then be a Prime Minister. He then forms a new cabinet for the Malaysian government.
    e) It is less than 3 months before the GE will take place. Therefore, now it is time to act.
    2. If my perception is true, I wish all the best and good luck to Tun and the other team members. I am not sure about others but I am pretty sure that I am with you.
    Ridzuan

    Salam Tun,
    Saya bersetuju dengan komen/cadangan yang diberikan oleh ‘kunci’ itu. Saya juga dengan kembalinya Tun ke dalam UMNO dapat memulihkan & menguatkan kembali perpaduan diantara kaum.
    Tak sabar nak tunggu Tun bertanding, tak salah kan kalau Tun jadi Perdana Menteri kami semula? 😀

  324. mdrose Sep 11,2008 1:12 PM

    Tun yang di sayangi,
    1.Saya berasa kecewa dengan keadaan negara sekarang nii.
    2.Kaum lain senang saja membangkitkan pasal kontrak sosial,mereka tidak akan di labelkan racist. Tapi kalau orang melayu cakap sikit pasal tindak tanduk bangsa lain,mereka kan di kenakan tindakan tatatertib,nasib melayu di TANAH MELAYU.I agree with you that MELAYU mudah lupa sejarah.
    3.Today dalam The Sun, Jui Meng nak hapuskan ketuanan MELAYU..dia nii ada belajar sejarah ke Tun?.
    4.Apa kata suruh bangsa lain mohon jadi PM kedua, TPM kedua, Sultan kedua bagi tiap tiap negeri..
    I like to read your writting..jangan jemu menulis TUN. Salam

  325. MOHD KHAIRUL ARIFFIN BIN NORDIN @ RAWI Sep 11,2008 1:10 PM

    Hi Tun,
    I was suprised that you decided to return to UMNO all the sudden. In my personal opinion, its best if you honor your word. If you stilll joining now, it will not do you any good especially to your reputation. Please reconsider.

  326. bob_kedah Sep 11,2008 1:09 PM

    Tahniah TUN…
    Saya mewakili Ketua Cawangan UMNO Taman Indah (bapa saya), Titi Gajah mempelawa TUN dan isteri untuk menjadi ahli UMNO Taman Indah dan menjadi Ketua Cawangan Taman Indah demi meneruskan perjuangan memperkasa bangsa dan memperbetulkan keadaan UMNO sendiri yang telah rosak teruk hasil kelemahan DSAAB dan konco2 serta keluarga.
    Ini adalah pelawaan ikhlas daripada Ketua UMNO Cawangan Taman Indah, Titi Gajah…
    Salam PERJUANGAN

    Sesungguhnya anakanda berterimakasih dengan ayahanda kerana mengajar dan berkongsi dengan anakanda tentang sejarah Malaysia dan Tanah Melayu..

    Untuk harapkan ankanda baca buku sejarah Tanah Melayu…mingkin lambat lagi kut…dan tak pasti kesahihan ceritanya…jadi anakanda ingin menyarankan agar segala artikel yang ayahanda telah coretkan di blog ini untuk dibukukan. anakanda adalah antara orang pertama yang membeli…. kenapa? pastilah untuk tatapan cucu-cucu dan cicit-cicit ayahanda nanti…

    Salam Tun,
    Ramai sudah ahli UMNO menyahut seruan Tun untuk keluar dari UMNO sebelum ini. Adakah ura-ura yang mengatakan Tun akan menyertai UMNO semula benar?

  329. leejepon Sep 11,2008 12:59 PM

    Salam ramadan wat Tun n keluarga
    1. Ini kali pertama saya menulis utk blog Tun setelah lama saya membaca komen2 blogers2 yg lain.
    2. Saya amat sedih n geram keadaan senario sekeliling kita, politik kita n ekonomi kita. Dalam keadaan skarang krajaan kita di serang dr berbagai sudut. Saya akui pemimpin kita skrang lemah n kelam kabut akibat jati diri yg lemah.
    3. Tun, masa saya melawat jepun dulu, kawan jepun saya cakap kalau Tun jadi PM mereka dah tentu AS pun takut. Dia kata, klau wartawan mereka tau yg Tun nk datang jepun, hampir smua akhbar di jepun akan hantar wartawan mereka untuk temuramah Tun. Sebab katanya, Tun boleh jawab secara sepontan soalan mereka. Mereka kata otak n pemikiran Tun ada 10 20 tahun kedepan. Alangkah bagus kalau Tun jadi PM jepun kata kawan saya tu.
    4. Tapi saya sedih kerana rakyat kita sendiri tidak boleh n takut bila Tun buka mulut. kenapa????? sebab mereka takut kedudukan n pangkat mereka akan tergugat.
    5. Saya lah orang yg paling gembira bila terbaca Tun nak join balik UMNO. Saya tau pe sebab Tun nak join balik. Hanya mereka2 yg makan gaji n elaun buta saja yg takut.
    6. Tun, saya ingin melihat Tun Perbetulkan balik parti yg kita sayangi yg dh menyimpang jauh. Tun bayangkan lah baru mesyuarat cawangan dh ada unsur rasuah, blum lagi pringkat bahagian. Jadi macamana lah kita nak rampas balik negeri2 yg dh jatuh ke tangan pembangkang. Apatah lagi DSAI dh jadi ketua pembangkang.
    7. Tun, akibat kelemahan pucuk pimpinan, berbagai-bagai lah orang tu tuntut macam2 waima cuepecs pn sama gak. Saya sangat geram dgn hindraf n parti DAP yg sorang adun dia macam nak hapuskan hak2 orang melayu. Geram sungguh. E2 pn orang2 melayu masih tak nampak n masih cetek akal pemikiran. Masih dok puja DSAI yg bolih bagi harga minyak turun. Kesian Datuk Ahmad Ismail, jadi kambing hitam nampaknya.
    8. Tun, klau boleh saya nak Tun masuk UMNO sampai pringkat yg tertinggi, klau boleh saya nk DSAAB letak jawatan bulan 12 nanti. makin lama dia d situ makin kucar kacir orang melayu kita.
    9. Tun, Saya nak Tun hapuskan menteri2 yg talam 2 muka tu. Diaorang ni hanya tau dok kat krusi empuk yg malas nak turun padang tengok kawasan n malas nk amik tau anak2 buah d kementrian masing2 wat keje.
    10. Tun, saya akan menyokong dan brani tampil kedepan jika ada yg cuba menghalang Tun kembali Ke dalam UMNO. Para bolgers2 yg prihatin, marilah kita bersatu, berdiri teguh dan berpendirian tetap bersama2 Tun yg kita sayangi. Jangan lah kita wat benda2 yg boleh merosakan dan melemahkan orang2 melayu kita dan anak2 kita yg sedang membesar.
    Wat Tun dan kluarga, berhati2 dan berjaga2 dengan orang2 yg dengki dan irihati dengan Tun. Moga Tun d beri kesihatan tg baik. Salam

    ASSALAMUALAIKUM AYAHANDA TUN, NAK SHARE SIKIT INFO DARI MYKMU….UNTUK TATAPAN SEMUA….LOVE YOU FOREVER AYAHANADA TUN….
    Isu Ahmad Ismail: MT UMNO Berpecah
    Contributed by Anonymous on Thursday, September 11 @ 04:06:47 MYT
    Topic: editor
    “Terlerai sudah sokongan Melayu tradisional terhadap UMNO” demikian komen Datuk Seri Rais Yatim dalam Mesyuarat MT UMNO semalam ketika diputuskan pergantungan ke atas Datuk Ahmad Ismail.
    Menurut sumber mesyuarat MT kali ini luar biasa apabila Presiden terus mencadangkan agar Ahmad Ismail dikenakan tindakan pergantungan sebelum perbincangan di kalangan MT. Difahamkan Ahli MT yang pertama sekali membantah cadangan ini ialah Dato’ Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo yang menganggap UMNO perlu berbincang lebih lanjut termasuk merujuk kepada jawatankuasa disiplin terlebih dahulu.
    Turut membantah cadangan Presiden ialah Rais Yatim, dan Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob. Beberapa ahli MT lain yang kurang senang ialah Datuk Seri Ali Rustam dan Datuk Seri Hishammudin Tun Hussien.
    Datuk Seri Utama Rais Yatim turut mengingatkan mesyuarat bahawa bukan satu kewajaran untuk Presiden mengutarakan hukuman atau keputusan sebelum membuka perbincangan terlebih dahulu.
    Namun pandangan Pak Lah disokong kuat oleh Datuk Seri Khalid Nordin dan Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz. Mereka tidak mahu menunggu keputusan Jawatankuasa disiplin mahupun siasatan polis.
    Difahamkan komponen BN lain mengugut untuk keluar BN jika tiada tindakan segera diambil ke atas Ahmad Ismail.
    Beberapa ahli MT turut mempersoalkan mengapa hanya Ahmad Ismail sahaja dikenakan tindakan. Mengapa akhbar cina yang turut memainkan isu perkauman ini tidak
    dikenakan sebarang tindakan. Bagaimanapun Pak Lah enggan berbuat apa-apa.
    Sungguhpun majoriti bersetuju menggantung Ahmad Ismail, namun ia bukanlah keputusan sebulat suara. UMNO sanggup mengenepikan prosedur hanya untuk memuaskan hati pemimpin MCA dan Gerakan.
    Menurut seorang ahli MKT yang dilantik, tiada sebarang pengundian dijalankan. Selepas perbincangan, Pak Lah membuat sidang akhbar mengumumkannya.
    Layakkah Pak Lah terus menjadi Presiden UMNO?

    Salam buat Tun n Che Det readers..
    Selamat kembali ke UMNO Tun. Saya amat gembira dengan keputusan Tun untuk kembali ke UMNO. Semoga dengan kembalinya Tun, negara kita tidak lagi kucar kacir seperti sekarang ini.
    kepada readers semua,janganlah dipersoalkan akan keputusan Tun utk kembali ke UMNO. memandangkan sebelum ini ramai mengharapkan Tun utk melakukan sesuatu utk menyelamatkan keadaan negara selain dari hanya mencetuskan idea dan ilham beliau di dlm blog. Maka saya percaya, langkah Tun utk kembali mungkin satu cara untuk membantu negara. Saya yakin Tun mempunyai sebab yang kukuh dan agenda nya tersendiri.
    Saya sgt menyokong Tun atas apa jua tindakan Tun kerana saya percaya akan kewibawaan Tun. Selamat berjaya Tun!!semoga Malaysia kembali aman dan bersinar seperti dahulu….Terima kasih Tun atas jasamu kepada Malaysia. Salam Ramadhan.
    Best Regards.

    assalamualaikum Tun…….
    ini pertama kali saya tergerak hati meninggalkan komen di blog Tun setelah hanya membaca..
    ape yg ingin saya katakan di sini ialah :
    saya akan mendaftar dengan SPR pada pilihan raya akan datang bg melayakkan saya mengundi.. saya tidak begitu arif dengan dunia politik tetapi saya selalu mengikuti perkembangannya…
    saya selalu terfikir parti politik yang manakah yang paling baik dalam menjaga kebajikan rakyatnya dan membawa malaysia kita pada kemajuan… tapi apa yang saya dapat hanyalah kekeliruan semata…
    Maaf saya katakan disini… saya dan kawan-kawan sudah hilang kepercayaan kepada pimpinan kerajaan yang ada sekarang ini… namun kami juga berpendapat bahawa dengan memilih parti pembangkang yang belum sahih lagi kata-katanya dan dilihat hanya akan membahayakan negara…
    pada pendapat saya,tidak mengundi pula hanya akan menjadikan saya seorang yang tidak berpendirian dan hanya tahu menyalahkan orang lain sahaja dan tidak berani bersuara… tapi jika memilih kerajaan sekarang.. bermakna saya menyokong segala tindakan meraka yang terang-terang hanya mahu memenuhkan poket sendiri sahaja dan tidak jujur dalam amanah yang diberikan… jadi saya berpendapat lebih baik memberi peluang kepada pembangkang untuk membuktikan kesungguhan mereka dan kebenaran pada kata-kata mereka…
    jadi pada pendapat Tun, apa pilihan dan kedudukan yang kami ada sebagai pewaris negara???
    maaf lah jika terdapat kekeliuran dalam kata-kata saya… saya hanya menyuarakan pendapat saya…
    sekian …

    AYAHANDA TUN, YOU MAY HAVE BEEN CALLED A RACIST BUT UNDER YOUR LEADERSHIP, THERE WAS NO OPEN ANIMOSITY BETWEEN THE RACES BECAUSE YOU’D DEAL WITH THE PERPETRATORS SEVERLY.
    PAK LAH (PERHAPS IF HE WERE CALLED DATUK SERI, HE’D TAKE HIS WORK MORE SERIOUSLY) IS NOT A KNOWN RACIST BUT IS A PROPONENT OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH. UNDER HIM ALL HELL IS BREAKING LOOSE!

    Dear Tun,
    As much as I admired the works done by you and the others to integrate the various races somewhat, I am perturbed by the fact that after 50 years the chinese have failed to assimilate. Seriously, some are not even able to utter a word in BM. So I don’t think that Datuk Ahmad has gone overboard, and I totally support hes sayings.

  335. isadarus Sep 11,2008 12:46 PM

    Salam Tun,
    Your item no.2
    2. Young Malays,…. They believe that the Malays should compete with the other races…
    Ini cerita dah terjadi di Singapore..
    Article 152 Singapore Constitution, perjanjian British?.,dulu orang Melayu masuk Polytechnic atau Universiti automatic free of charge tak perlu bayar yuran tapi sekarang dah diubah. Sekarang masuk U kena bayar! Kerana orang Cina bilang tak FAIR.
    Orang Melayu di Singapore yg pegang jawatan tinggi dalam pemerintah hanyalah sebagai Menteri Jaga Air dan Sekitaran walaupun dia pegang title “Professor”. You think this competition Fair?.
    Wassallam

  336. fid Sep 11,2008 12:44 PM

    DR M
    Dengar kata dah masuk balik ke UMNO ke? kalau betul baru I pun join balik.
    Apa yg di kata kan DR M mmg betul mmg kerana TUNKU lah Malaysia jd mcm ni sekarang, but as they say NO USE TO CRY OVER SPILL MILK jd kenalah buat apa yg terbaik dgn apa yg kita ada sekarang. Tapi rasanay bukannya kita ada yg multi racial S’pore pun sama jugak but they have manage to control the malays there so kita tak boleh buat mcm tu kat Malaysia ke?

  337. anakmalaysia Sep 11,2008 12:44 PM

    Masalah kerenggangan kaum di Malaysia adalah disebabakan oleh niat jahat ahli-ahli politik yang gila kuasa. Contohnya di Sabah tidak terdapat polarisasi kaum sebelum 90an. Tidak terdapat halangan persahabatan antara kaum-kaum dan kahwin campur antara kaum-kaum yang berlainan adalah perkara biasa di Sabah. Adalah perkara biasa dimana sekolah rendah cina di pinggir bandar yang menpunyai peratusan pelajar bumiputra (Muslim dan bukan Muslim)melebihi pelajar cina sendiri.
    Tetapi malangnya, terdapat ahli-ahli politik terutama dari UMNO yang bertapak di Sabah pada 1994 telah merosakkan kehormonian yang sekian lama. Guru-guru dari semenanjung malaysia yang membawa pengaruh yang tidak baik juga memainkan peranan penting masalah polarisasi pelajar-pelajar di Sabah pada 20 puluh tahun yang kebelakangan ini. Walau bagaimanapun, saya rasa polarisasi kaum di Sabah masih tidak serius seperti di semenanjung malaysia. Saya berharap masalah ini tidak akan merebak ke Sabah jika ahli-ahli politik tidak memainkan isu-isu perkauman.

  338. tcernina Sep 11,2008 12:41 PM

    yup, very much in agreement with you… Things are getting quite ‘hot’ between the races.

  339. rizuwan Sep 11,2008 12:40 PM

    Salam Tun,
    Saya dah mula risau selepas membaca comment Tun.Yes racial tension is on the rise.People start to call each other racist.If there is any flareup Pak Lah would not be able to handle.He is so lembik.Najib is also as timid as a mouse.The other Umno leaders only think of their position and the perks that come with it.Other than Muhyiddin they have little love for the party and the country.
    The umno displinary board is toothless and most of the rank and file can be bought for a few hundred ringgit and a kain pulicat or batik sarong.The party is rotten to the core.Would the supreme council take you back? Iwish you good luck.
    The only spark left of umno leaders is Muhyddin.His latest statement is like a breath of fresh air.I salute this brave man.He is the Hang Jebat of the new millenium.

  340. Rentap Sep 11,2008 12:36 PM

    Maybe we can reflect:
    – Presiden MCA, Tun Tan Siew Sin, dilaporkan dalam akhbar tempatan bertajuk “Tun Tan Answers Critics on special Previleges” dalam pada 30 april 1969, berkata:
    “The Malays, through UMNO, were generous enough to relax the citizenship laws of this country to such extent that within 12 months of independence, 90 percent were still non-citizens after nearly 100 years of colonial rule in the Malay States. In return for this major concession. the MCA and the MIC agreed to continue the policy of preserving the special position of the Malays while at the same time upholding the legitimate interest of other communities.”
    – UCAPAN PRESIDEN MIC merangkapMENTERI KERJAYA RAYA, POS DAN TELEKOM, TUN V.T. SAMBANTHAN DI DEWAN RAKYAT PADA 1 JUN 1965.
    “Now, in 1955 we won the elections with a great majority. Then we obtained freedom in two years time. During this period, we had to discuss citizenship and various other things. Now what did the Malays do – since we are speaking on racial lines – what did the Malay leadership do? They had 88 percent of the electorate still with them. What did they do with citizenship?
    If we look around in Asia and East Asia, particularly, you will find that my race the indian race, is not welcomed in Ceylon, is not welcomed in Burma. Look at my brother Chinnese race, it is not welcomed in Thailand, in Vietnam, in Cambodia, in all the other areas. What help do they get for citizenship in all these territories? In Burma, as we know, Indian have been send packing, in Ceylon they refused them citizenship and in Burma it is likewise. I know it, you know it. And yet in Malaya what happened? Here we found that the Malay leadership said, “We shall take them unto ourselves as brothers, we shall give them full opportunity to live in this country, we shall give them every opportunity to become citizens.” And so, in 1957, for the whole year, we waived language qualifications, and tens of thousand of Indians, Chinnese, Ceylonese and others became citizens…
    As I said, it has been my great good fortune to have born in this country. Where else can you find a more charitable, a more polite, a more decent race than Malay race? Where else can you get such politically decent treatment for any immigrant race? Where else in the history of the world? I ask you. These are the facts. Who are you to safeguards us? I am 10 percent minority race here. But I am happy here.”

  342. edmund chua Sep 11,2008 12:30 PM

    Dear Tun,
    1) Few points here in my opinion, it looks like Tun is on the stand to maintain the current social contract. Not even a small change that you were looking into
    2) If i can re-call, non malay is the one who collect the money, selling all their belonging to earn some money for Tunku to go to England to fight for our independence. Can we see that team work again? I was really amaze by this fact. do you think the country can progree so well with only malays helping out only. It is not. Majority are chinese but still at the end it comes out to as a harmony works of all 3 etchnic. The indian community working as a rubber planter, and yes plantation was our economic focus during our early years. But do they received the same benefits during that time. Do they get well paid??? The answer is not. Look at Felda, last time paid was not good but now it is getting better. But for rubber tapper it is still maintain the same.Is that because it is their fault for borning as non malays. Why Tunku is so eager to give some advantage to Chinese. Bacause he believes Chinese likes harmony and not selfish.
    in Human right, we are rank top 5 worst in the world.
    3) How many things that we see last long will benefits everyone. In the case, why not we ruled back by Sultan sama seperti zaman dulu.
    4) Also, in the business terms, if we see some action that we done did not show the progree, aren’t businessman are suppose to study the SWAT analysis and to make amendment?
    5) Kalau dah disuapkan nasi, tapi masih x membangun, why not use other method. I believe with that case, this will help on our development
    6. I am not PKR supporter at all. But sometimes even bad people will come out somehting that can help others. Not all the bad guys do all the bad thing. Sometimes they do good too. The NEP that i look will be something good but not to the extend until it is total fairness. It will be majority on the malays advantage.
    7. Most of my Malays friends, when i approach them asking why they did not wish to work in a malay company. The reaosn they are kedekut. I was shock at first because everyone in Malaysia has label Chinese as kedekut but at the end it was the malays employers are more stingy. Thats is according to their opinion. I might be wrong here,
    8. I believe if the NEP is not the correct /insuitable, do you think the malays ehtnic will not fight for scrapping the NEP? They will.

    Salam Tun yang di cintai..Pak lah harus disingkirkan didalam mesyuarat agung Umno tahun ini…harus…percayalah Pak Lah banyak membuat keputusan yang tidak memihak kepada orang melayu khususnya…jika Pak Lah terus di tampuk pemerintahan percayalah selepas belaiu bersara orang melayu akan mengecam beliau di atas kesilapannya..kini Pak Lah di dalam kepanasan di atas kes Datuk Ahmah yang mana ia telah melemahkan Pak Lah secara halus..kita tengok Umno Pulai Pinang menyokong tindakan Dato Ahmad sekaligus menunjukkan kepada kita Pak Lah telah di tolak di Pulau Pinang..begitu juga di negeri sembilan…hanya sumber dalaman yg mengetahui betapa mereka menolak Pak Lah…

    Salam TUN,
    Saya rasa kebanyakan Rakyat Malaysia menghormati Perlembagaan Negara, NEP dan Sosial Kontrak yang telah ditetapkan. Rakyat jelata tidak akan dan tidak mungkin menyentuk isu-isu sensitif ini sekiranya ahli-ahli politik tidak membuat “hasutan”. Malang sekali, ahli-ahli politik sekarang suka menggunakan isu-isu ini untuk mendapatkan sokongan…keadaan ini perlu diperbetulkan.
    Sebagai seorang Rakyat Malaysia, sesungguhnya saya amat mengharapkan Perlembagaan Negara, NEP dan Sosial Kontrak dapat memberi kesan positif kepada semua Rakyat Malaysia, seperti kestabilan ekonomi, keamanan and keharmonian rakyat. Saya rasa ramai yang marah sekarang, terutamanya kaum-kaum bukan Bumiputera(termasuk saya), bukan sebab Perlembagaan Negara/NEP/Sosial Kontrak itu sendiri, tetapi cara perlaksanaannya. Ekoran daripada cara perlaksanaan yang tidak betul, wujudnya masalah menyalahgunakan NEP, ketidakadilan, pembasmian kemiskinan tidak cekap dan kurang adil, rasuah, ekonomi merosot, keamanan Rakyat terancam (kes-kes jenayah meningkat), tahap pelajaran negara semakin rendah dan tidak diakuii dunia, sistem kehakimam yang lemah, kecekapan sistem pentadbiran yang tidak memuaskan dan sebagainya. Sekiranya semua masalah ini dapat diselesaikan, maka saya rasa tidak ada sesiapa akan mempersoalkan Perlembagaan Negara/NEP/Sosial Kontrak ini…Kerajaan sekarang harus fokus…Kita lahir di Malaysia, macam mana kita tidak sayangkan Malaysia.

  345. Pendekar_umno Sep 11,2008 12:28 PM

    Kepekakkan dan ketulian AAB tidak boleh dibiarkan menghancurkan UMNO. Bukankah dah tiba masanya ahli-ahli UMNO membuat perarakan umum menuntut agar AAB melekatkan jawatan? Mana pergi “pakar-pakar organiser” perarakan didalam UMNO? Tolong le organise kan!

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Saya rasa amat terharu dan berterima kasih kerana Tun sudi kembali kepada UMNO. Sememangnya UMNO tidak mampu kehilangan Tun. Sesuatu masyarakat, parti, syarikat atau sesiapa sahaja yang menyingkirkan seseorang yg bijak dan banyak berjasa dari komuniti mereka adalah merupakan suatu langkah yg tidak bijak.
    Saya harap Tun dapat melangkah dengan lebih pantas kali ini kerana keadaan semakin tidak keruan. Hati kaum Cina telah membengkak, harapnya belum bernanah.
    Saya amat berharap Tun mempunyai formula yg baik bagi mengelakkan ianya bernanah.
    Pemilihan UMNO lah jawapan yg tepat bagi kemelut ini. Sokong lah Kuli bagi Presiden UMNO kerana saya rasa beliau dapat menyatukan Melayu, menarik gulongan muda utk meminati UMNO, lawan yang setanding bagi DSAI dan boleh bekerjasama dengan Tun disamping beliau juga disenangi oleh kaum Cina.
    Tan Sri Muhyiddin sepatutnya memberi sokongan kepada Kuli bukan turut sama bertanding merebut jawatan Presiden.
    Amat malang bagi Dato Seri Najib kerana dari pandangan saya, imej beliau telah teruk tercalar dan buktinya adalah pada pilihanraya Permatang Pauh baru-baru ini.
    Diharap beliau berbuat sesuatu bagi menyelamatkan reputasi beliau, jika tidak…..UMNO semakin kehilangan bintangnya, sementara bintang muda semakin kurang.

  350. tunkamarul radenabdullah Sep 11,2008 12:14 PM

    Salam kepada Tun yang disanjungi (bagi yang mereka yang x menghargai, pedulikan mereka sebab tidak tahu menghargai sumbangan pemimpin terdahulu @ buta hati tidak tahu sejarah).
    Pertama sekali ucapan tahniah kerna wujudnya medium bersuara (bentuk teks) sebegini.
    Tanpa sejarah manusia tidak punyai cita2 mahupun harapan.
    Oleh itu mereka2 yang buta sejarah mahupun jahil belajarlah tentang sejarah Malaysia mahupun Tanah Melayu (ASALNYA).
    13 Mei 1969 ? Apakah sebenarnya yang berlaku ? Yang tahu hanyalah generasi yang hidup pada zaman itu. Anak muda generasi seperti saya hanya mengetahui dari cerita mulut ke mulut generasi yang terdahulu, buku yang ditulis oleh PM terdahulu YMT ABDUL RAHMAN PUTERA ALHAJ, serta artikel2 yang telah ditapis isi kandungannya. Wikipedia, bahan2 yang boleh diakses dari mana2 medium serta beberapa buku 13 Mei yang dikarang oleh penulis berketurunan Cina.
    Sedih sekali kerana kebenaran yang benar tidak diketahui atau
    digambarkan. Tidak ada satupun yang asli, sebahagian pula ditambah2, sebahagian pula berat sebelah dan ada pula tidak menggambarkan secara terperinci. Sangat sedih sebab tidak dapat mengetahui yang asli.
    Saya sayang agama saya, asal keturunan, bangsa dan negara saya.
    Adakah saya rasis ? Fasis ? Nasionalis ? serta pelbagai terminologi yang dicipta untuk melabel saya dalam satu kumpulan @ golongan kumpulan dan bermacam – macam lagi. PEDULI apa saya dengan terminologi yang ada.
    Hmmm, sejarah di Indonesia dahulu Belanda (penjajah) menyerang Indonesia, ramai yang bangkit menentang Belanda (penjajah) mahupun pengkhianat (sebangsa, seagama dan senegara). Moyang2 saya salah seorang yang bangkit menentang penjajah dan pengkhianat di Keraton (tidak perlu dinyata disini), Indonesia.
    Masa berlalu tetapi darah itu tetap mengalir di tubuh keturunan beliau.
    Oleh yang demikian mereka yang berketurunan atau yang bersemangat seperti beliau, bangkitlah menentang !
    YBhg Tun dan mereka2(ahli politik & pihak berkuasa) yang masih sayangkan agama, keturunan dan negara bantulah rakyat yang hanya mampu buang undi, tunjuk perasaan dan perkara2 yang langsung tidak bermanfaat buat terdekat sebelum edisi KE 2 13hb Mei berlaku. Kalau ianya berlaku lupakan sahaja wawasan 2020 . Kotakanlah janji .
    Semoga semua usaha yang jujur dilimpahi berkat ALLAH swt walaupun mengharungi kesukaran.
    Terima kasih kerana membawa kemajuan kepada negara dan rakyat.
    Tun Kamarul Raden Abdullah.

    salam Tun,
    TO ALL COMMENTATORS AND BLOGGERS,
    PLEASE KEEP OUR EMOTIONS IN CHECK WHENEVER DISCUSSING THE SOCIAL CONTRACT
    DO NOT RISK THE WELL -BEING AND FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY
    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHALLENGE KUASA RAJA-RAJA MELAYU
    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PORTRAY MALAYS AS ‘PENDATANG’ TOO
    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PORTRAY MALAYS AS STUPID AND LAZY.IF ANY OF YOU SAY THAT,I CAN ALWAYS RETORT BACK ‘MANY CHINESE AND INDIANS ARE STUPID AND LAZY TOO’!
    TIMES ARE A CHANGING.WE MALAYS ARE PROGRESSING AND LEARNING FROM PAST MISTAKES.TAKE US FOR GRANTED AT YOUR OWN RISKS!
    THE WAY THINGS ARE PROGRESSING,MANY OF THE MALAYS MIGHT JUST CHANGE THEIR THINKING AND ATTITUDE AND BECOME WHAT TUN SAID ABOVE.
    ASK YOURSELVES THESE QUESTIONS.WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST?
    ECONOMIC STABILITY? RACIAL HARMONY?
    JANGAN DI JOLOK SARANG TEBUAN!

    Salam Ayahanda Tun dan keluarga
    Terima kasih dengan penjelasan yang cukup bernas. Kami sebagai rakyat tertunggu jawapan daripada Pak Lah untuk persoalan mengenai kontrak sosial. Adalah tidak mustahil jika Pak Lah tidak memahaminya kerana paham2 saje lah …..zzzzzzzz….

  354. lanesra Sep 11,2008 12:10 PM

    Tun…ini satu cadangan.,
    Kalau betul Tun kembali ke UMNO, ramai-ramai cadangkan TS Muhyiddin Yassin naik sebagai peneraju UMNO. Beliau ada ciri-ciri seperti Tun juga..
    DS Najib sekarang dah banyak berubah.
    Diharap berhati-hati dengan Khairi J. Saya terus terang tak sokong dia. Baru je dalam UMNO (Itu pun sebab Bapak mertua) dah besar kepala.Setahu saya KJ tu banyak xtau tentang sejarah UMNO-mane tak nye, dulu sekolah kat singapore.Pastu p UK Plak, Alih2nak jadi Ketua Pemuda Plak UMNO plak. Makin rosak nanti UMNO dibuatnya.!
    Harap anak TUN- D.Mukhriz Menang nanti….
    BUAT ROMBAKKAN BESAR-BESARAN DALAM UMNO.
    UNTUK KESEJAHTERAAN MELAYU & ISLAM MALAYSIA
    AMIN…..

    To Jan,
    As you written on ur msg,
    “I agree that social contract must continue because it is an agreement or “bargain” between previous leaders for 1 million non-malays citizenships. Otherwise, we should ship them back to where they originally come from.”
    I think you also needed to be shipped back. Go check with your ancestor, from which pulau r they from, izzit pulau jawa or elsewhere?
    We all r pendatang to “Malaysia” except those Iban, khadazan and….

    Assalam TOK Det,
    Luar tajuk sikit, Haritu kat Berita jam 8 – Tun masuk balik UMNO for improvemenkan…tulis le sikit, berita bagi ciput je, dah tu paklah patutnya yang announce, macam lari2 je, macamana nak duduk semeja

  359. Benderbuzz Sep 11,2008 12:05 PM

    Salam Tun.
    PR mendakwa mereka berjuang demi liberalisasi dan demokrasi sedangkan demokrasi yang mereka perjuangkan bukannya sesuai mengikut acuan kita. Apatah lagi PAS dengan manifesto kerajaan Islam dan Negara kebajikan amat tidak konsisten apabila berdepan dengan PR.
    Kontrak sosial yang dipertikaikan kini jelas merupakan agenda utama PR sedangkan ianya adalah asas kepada perlembagaan negara yang menjamin keseimbangan dan kestabilan negara.
    Oleh itu awas, jika 16 Sept menjadi realiti (mustahil berlaku), MP yang terlihat mesti dihadapkan ke muka pengadilan sebab:
    MP lompat parti = mencuri duit ahli parti demi kepentingan diri.
    MP lompat parti = menipu para pengundi.
    MP lompat parti = makan rasuah demi kepentingan jawatan.
    MP lompat parti = pecah amanah para pengundi.
    * boleh diaplikasikan kepada BN dan PR.
    p/s: Tak lama lagi suara azan hanya layak dibisikkan ke telinga sahaja di Selangor (laporan media 10/9/08) dan guru matapelajaran sejarah bakal dihadapkan ke mahkamah kerana menghasut pelajar di dalam kelas.

    Dear Tun,
    I agreed 100 percent.Hope u will come back and treat every race fairly.By sharing wealth our gap between rich and poor will reduce,but only the hardcore poor communities .I am chinese ,i admire u so much!

  362. ABI Sep 11,2008 12:03 PM

    It is reported in the media that you have agreed to rejoin UMNO. This is clearly- without an iota of doubt- indicative of your inconsistency and fickle-mindedness, Tun! Our Malay leaders have known to be firm in whatever stance they had to take. We cannot say this of you, unfortunately. You should always think before you leap! It’s like eating your own words! Apalah ini, Tun? Clear sign of senility?
    You were not privy to the social contract that was agreed to prior to independence. So, it’s best that you don’t expatiate ona concept that you don’t know much about. What research have you done to show categorically that the the majority of the Bumiputeras are against the social contract? You are treading where the angels even would fear to tread! You also seem to assume- and rather erroneously so- that you are the authority on the subject!
    ABI

  363. sizzer33 Sep 11,2008 12:02 PM

    Hi Tun,
    I agree these racist mudfight is really catching on. Couldn’t be good for anyone.
    But the thing is, can you stop these remarks now? Blogs and e-news are everywhere, punches are going to be throwned regardless. Unless you kick all bloggers into detention with ISA. Which means you’ll also be put into detention.
    I think you’re just trying to blame anything on Dollah. The fact is things have changed and you can’t stop it even if you wanted to. I bet if there’s an earthquuake tomorrow in Malaysia, you’ll blame it on Dollah.

  364. MNM Sep 11,2008 12:01 PM

    Salam Tun,
    Your article has reflected on whats happening after previous disastrous election result by the ruling party. However worried we are nothing will happen unless the present leadership being removed frm their position.
    we have to admit it everybodies regardless Malay, Chinease and Indian are scared and curious about our shakey racial relationship but we got to be honest that we do not want such fragile relationship destroyed. Therefore all races need to combine effort to safeguard the inter-racial relationship. And there is no other ways in doing apart from our joint effort to remove the present government leadership.
    Hope Tun can cast a way in doing this.
    Selamat Berpuasa

  365. pulau_sibu Sep 11,2008 12:01 PM

    For Sarawakians, it was the biggest mistake to be dragged into the federation. It would be best to go back to 1963 and let us out of this mess. Whether our boss is the British or UMNO, it does not make a big difference. Sarawakians have to be its own boss. Let us decide it by ourselves.

  366. isahbiazhar Sep 11,2008 11:58 AM

    It looks like you are going to start the racial problem of this country again.Are you afraid of Annuar? It is very clear that your agenda is not to unite but to destroy the non Malays.Just because they had become vocal it does not make the Malays non vocal.All the social agenda and past political rhetoric can be kept in the archives.Because of your statement the government will not be cowed.You can see the result of callimg the Chinese “Pendatang”.Abdullah did well and soon his popularity will soar.As I had told you before in my comments that it is those born before 1950s who bring out Malay supremacy.Time has come for the Malays to fight it out.It will not result in anything.The Chinese know that they have to live with the Malays.As you said about calling the neighbouring countries you can just forget about that idea.Indonesia will swallow the Malays and the Malays will become slaves.At least the Chinese and the Indians have proved capable in dealing with a situation where they have been deprived.As a PM before can you imagine the number of Malay projects that had failed.It was corrected by Chines proxy.The Malays benefitted both the times; in failure and success.When the contract failed the Umno Malays enjoyed.When in success they got their cut from the Chinese.All these were done under your nose because of the natural wealth.The time is coming for the Malays to generate wealth and if they do not get the nonmalays, the whole country will be gone.People will not fight but will be just growing food to eat and nothing else.You even commented about the developed country status.Can we achieve by the Malays alone?It can never.You even changed your stand of wanting to join Umno which speaks poorly of you.You should have kept quiet and today both the opposition and the government would have prostrated at you feet for advice.But see the situation now when you did the rounabout.I am really depressed by your thinking.

  367. YKW Sep 11,2008 11:57 AM

    Welcome back..Tun.
    It will definately be a plus piont for Tun’s leadership to be back in Umno during this period of uncertainty. Although there’s always human nature to critise whether you are doing good or bad in our daily job. I’m looking forward for your guidance to Umno.

  368. totally spies Sep 11,2008 11:55 AM

    on social contract,they should remain & respected as before.
    Era Pak Lah ini banyak group yg tunjuk belang,mungkin nampak Pak Lah lemah lembut. Hindraf ,Bar council…masihkah ingat perwakilan drp ahli parlimen cina termasuk menteri2 berbangsa cina hantar memorandum kat Pak Lah awal2 Pak Lah naik takhta …? ini satu kenyataan yg menunjukkan mereka berani & menghina PM negara malaysia(bos mereka!).
    Pada masa Tun dulu( note, 22 years in reign),mana ada yg naik tocang begitu..?hanya pada 1998, havoc kes liwat DSAI dan politik ‘reformasi’ dia .
    finally, saya nak katakan, TUN, kembalilah kepada UMNO. To set up a new party IS not a solution. UMNO lah tunjang kekuatan Negara dan bangsa Melayu. UMNO lah akar umbi kepada BN dlm kekuatan ikatan dengan (parti)kaum2 lain di negara ini.Kekuatan UMNO adalah kekuatan BN dlm membentuk bangsa & negara malaysia yg stabil dan maju.
    Tun, kembalilah untuk membina kembali keteguhan bangsa dan negara ini, tanah tumpah darah dan lubuk rezeki kesayangan & kecintaan bangsa kita ini.

  369. Paran Chinniah Sep 11,2008 11:54 AM

    Dear Tun,
    Now you are talking like the man I used to know.
    My question still remains the same, Malays are my brothers and sisters just like the Chinese.
    I have been in Malaysia for as long as I know, in fact I am the second generation in Malaysia. This is my home.
    So what it takes for me to be treated as the first class Malaysian? I don’t want to be a second-class citizen in my home.
    You know how it feels? It feels exactly like a orphan child being adopted by a family but treating him/her with bias perspective. I feel left out. Why this bias treatment?
    But if you insist, I will always be the second-class citizen, then please advice how much should I love Malaysia? As much as Malays? Or may be 50% lesser?
    I’m loosing my identity and its sliding faster than our economy.

  370. RazHu Sep 11,2008 11:53 AM

    Sebenarnya saya pun dah letih nak komen2 pasal hak Bumiputera dan bangsa2 lain. Kitapun da kata lebih baik kita bincang adik beradik macam dulu kala. Tak payah gaduh2. Tapi ada pulak pihak tertentu nak tolak pasai Social Kontrak pulak lepas mabuk tsunami. Kita orang Melayu Melaka pun ada hak. Kalau di tolak konsep penjajahan Portugis/Belanda/Inggeris maka Tanah Melayu ini adalah juga hak kaum atau suku dari Sumatera kerana proksimitinye. Orang Melayu dari Dumai boleh ke Teluk Gong Kuala Sungai Baru dalam masa hanya kurang dari 20 minit sahaja. Kepulauan dan Semanjung Melayu ini hanya di pisahkan atas sebab2 penjajahan. Kesanggupan orang Melayu menerima mereka yang dalam kumpulan yang terasing ini telah diperkecilkan. Sedih. Sedih dan Sedih

  371. bumi7276 Sep 11,2008 11:49 AM

    Y. Bhg Tun,
    For many of us born at about the time of our country’s independence, we have now come of age. At 50, I am blessed to be a Malaysian living in a country that has prospered over the years. Sure, we have had our fair share of problems – those that were created by others and those that we created ourselves. However in the past, we could always turn to our leaders and elders for their wisdom and foresight in arresting each problem as it presents itself. We had tremendous confidence in their leadership, steadfastness and ability in finding a way out of any situation that does little or no harm to the country and its citizens.
    I believe it is obvious to many like minded Malaysians that the harmonious Malaysia we live in is being disturbed and is fast eroding. The actions of a few, as they continue to play their game to serve their own ends, have put everyone in this country on the line. And this leadership that we have today does nothing to address this; how can they when they themselves are so fragile and tainted? It is indeed disheartening and sad to see that after all these years we haven’t really gone anywhere. The directions set by our leaders of the past have been left by the wayside as the current leadership is bent on pursuing so called ‘bigger and better’ things for the nation. In the course of so doing, we have spread ourselves so thin that instead of going forward, we have actually gone backwards.
    Of late, I wake up each day to these possibilities: that my place in this country will no longer continue to be secure and safe; or that the wonderful chinese lady from whom we buy our daily groceries will see us in a different light; or that my pot bellied indian barber will no longer wish to share his worldly views with mine. This will not be the Malaysia that I would like my children to grow up and embrace as citizens. Whether we are Malays, Chinese, Indian or others we are all Malaysians. We have a duty to live harmoniously and to respect each other; at this point in time, we seem to be failing in our duty. This, we cannot afford.

  372. akubebas Sep 11,2008 11:48 AM

    Slm Tun…
    agaknyer Tun dah terlupa kot kata2 Tun masa kuar dari UMNO (x kan msk UMNO blk selagi Pak Lah masih PM)..betullah kata2 masa Tun as a PM dulu..melayu mudah lupa…..hidup pak lah yg x mudah lupa cuma mudah tertido jerk!!!

  373. Mohan Sep 11,2008 11:48 AM

    Dear Tun,
    We always seem to talk about the past issues but are we serious to put things right. We are so proud to be known as Malaysians overseas but in Malaysia we are identified by RACE.
    Patriorism starts from a sense of belonging and not when you practice segreggation.We make this right and questions about the Social Contract wont arise.
    After all the Constitution is self explanatory
    Regards
    Mohan

  374. plutonium Sep 11,2008 11:46 AM

    The way I see the curent problem:
    1. There is no racial tension as claimed at the People Level. The Malay, Chinese and Indian are living in harmony, working together and migling along well.
    2. The claimed racial tension is found to be only at Political Level. This can be clearly seen as leaders of political party exchaning ‘laseric’ words; be it MCA or UMNO or MIC or GERAKAN or whatever.
    3. These political party leaders are NOT the leaders of the community/society, they are just leader of the party in which they represent the party and the members only. Whatever they say or claims did NOT represent the community, simple.
    4. Logically, I can bet that any race would want welcome a racial unrest in Malaysia and destroy this country. The Malay, Chinese, Indian and other races that live in Malaysia are different generation and able to think foward and smart!!
    5. Those political party leaders that claim or predict racial unrest are just darn downright stupid and still in the old generation thinking. They should be arrested under the ISA immediately for poisoning the people.
    6. Politicians are politicians, they are oppurtunist. They will take advantage of any situationn; be it good or bad for their personal gain. Never trust what a politician say, think for yourself, do your homework and judge based on that.
    Lastly, we should totally REJECT the leaders who use RACE as a tool to achieve thier personal agenda!! Malaysians are PEACE LOVING citizens, WE WILL NOT ENGAGE IN ANY RACIAL UNREST AND BE LOOSER AT THE END !!!
    Again, those racial unrest or tensions that has been claimed by leaders of political party are just plain WHITE LIES !!!!! Ask this leaders to go out to the street and see for themselve our these 3 main ethnics are working together!! THIS IS THE FACT, PERIOD.

    Salam Ayahanda Tun, reading your observation on the social contract has indeed been enlightening. Initially I was one of those guys who brushed off the Bar Council’s attempts at discussing this issue as a stupid and lame excuse for them to get their weekly dosage of 15 minutes of fame. However, I now sense that there appears to be a systematic and concerted approach to undermine what our forefathers have bequeathed upon us i.e the Federal Constitution. This attempt must be stopped immediately. Why you may ask? the reason for this is simple. Such an attempt runs smack into hypocrisy of the Rukun Negara on ‘Keluhuran Perlembagaan’. It is indeed very difficult to cast away the fog of racism since race and creed symbolise the very basic of human profiling which is apparent to the naked eye. In this regard, I would recommend that the government run documentaries on what the actual history of Malaysia is all about. To cast asunder this rising pall of animosity among Malaysians, we need to identify the parameters for us to debate on this issue. We cannot allow irresponsible people whether they be in the form of politicians or ngos step forward and delude us with their narrow view of what they think is correct, after all they have their own interest to protect. What we should do as Malaysians is to look deep into our history, understand what Malaysia is all about, define the parameters of our debate, and look for a solution to this problem which threatens to erupt and engulf our children in flames of social unrest and irresponsible leadership.
    Oh by the way Ayahanda, welcome back to UMNO. So what if there are those who say that you have become ‘Melayu mudah lupa’ and that you have reneged on your own promise. Ayahanda, you have always been a practical man. It is indeed a strong and honorable person to admit that he has made a mistake and then try to correct that mistake, as compared to a man who continues to stumble blindly, acknowledging a mistake but not acknowledging that HE is THE mistake.

    Assalamualaikum…Tun
    Betul ke Tun nak masuk UMNO balik? Kalau betul harap Tun dapat sama-sama jernihkan keadaan yang runcing ini.
    Apa pendapat Tun tentang Anwar & 16 September?
    Tentang Wakil BN Sabah & Sarawak ke luar negara?
    Tentang Pergantungan 3 thn wakil Bukit Bendera?
    Tentang DS Najib dulu dan sekarang?
    buka cerita di atas……

    “Certainly when my children, your children, Gundohing’ children, Mr.TAN’children,Mr. Raju’s children are able to compete on a ‘level starting block’ ,then maybe,just maybe we could do away with the social contracts and create the BANGSA MALAYSIA envisioned by TUN in Vision 2020.”
    Consider these…….
    1) What is the time frame for those previlege group to reach that level starting ground ? Some of them take it as their rights and thus not putting efforts to buck up. So, I doubt the Day will ever come.
    2) OK assume the Day comes and the Contract is done away with, but what if after awhile :
    a) the group slacks again, are we going to put back the Contract?
    b) the other groups slack? are we going to grant them that same previleges too?
    So, it’s messy, messy, messy. Why don’t we just ignore the race criteria and work on needs basis. Give previleges and aids to every deserving citizen who meets the conditions, e.g. per capita income below RM600/month. Then we can ensure that the aids really go to the needy.
    Example : the bumi discounts given to buyers of luxury properties are actually benefiting the rich. It should be channeled to build more affordable housing for the poor in general. Make sense ?
    Give it a thought!

    Assalamua’laikum YAB TUN dan Keluarga semoga dapat menjalankan ibadah puasa dengan sempurna dan sentiasa dirahmati Allah s.w.t. dalam setiap detik kehidupan Tun, Amin.
    Yes, Social Contract.Most are aware of the existence and may be the
    younger generation are still in the dark about it and this subject should always be inculcated to all Malaysian by the authority.
    2. Why? Unless the so called “Social Contract” rescinded, otherwise it should be made known to all Malaysian.With the knowledge hopefully all Malaysian will have a better understanding on how Malaysia was established and also respects will be accorded accordingly.
    3. I have said in my blog (if you care to surf:www.warongkopi56.blogspot.com) all started with a weak, incompetent and less sensitive leader(s).
    4. Is never easy to be leaders. My definitions of a good leader, not only garnering the majority support,not only a good orator but must be knowledgeable,provident,tolerance,decorous and the primary interest of the citizen comes first, based on affirmative action policy.
    5. The leaders must need to benchmark these qualities and must be bold and sincere to concede if they did not reach the mark, especially to those appointed leaders.
    6. Whatever reasons given to justify the happenings, I hold the leader responsible.If the leader is so incompetent withdraw and admit and pass the batton to a more eligible person,rather hang on to it and allow the destruction of the nation.
    7. If the incompetent leader still wish to hold the position and allow the destruction of the nation that leader has committed a sin
    for the victimisation due to his conceitedness.
    Ponder what kind of a leader(s) we are having now?

    Salam Sejahtera Tun dan isteri
    Dulu orang Melayu Singapura dipadamkan sejarah ketuanan dan dari mengetahui asal usul dan terus sanggup hilang hak. Cara terang dan tanpa apa-apa kenyataan mereka terus merampas dan menutup peluang untuk orang Melayu hidup berjaya. Seterusnya mereka meyakinkan yang Melayu Singapura jauh lebih bertuah… Walaupun hanya segelintir saja yang berjaya. Kita harap ini tidak dibiarkan terjadi di Malaysia.
    Kita Bangsa Melayu Malaysia patut sedar dan menjaga hak kita. Kita perlukan Ketua yang dapat memperjuangankan dan mempertahankan “benefits” kita sebagai Bangsa Melayu dan Bangsa Bumiputra Malaysia….sebagai anak sendiri bukan anak tiri.
    Walaupun segelintir dari kita telah liberal, sedar-lah sedikit yang ramai lagi anak bangsa kita perlukan pertolongan untuk peningkatan taraf. Perjuangkan hak kita untuk mencapai Meritocracy sebelum berdepan dengan-nya. Kalau Cina & India ada banyak tempat lain, bantuan dan peluang boleh diraih, bangsa Melayu dan Bumiputera kita hanya ada Malaysia …tanah tumpah darah nenek moyang kita.
    Pada keseluruhannya kita masih ketinggalan jauh. Dalam keadaan sekarang dibawah pimpinan Pak Lah terasa hak kita mengalami kesusutan dan terus mengalir seperti mengenggam minyak.
    Dan seterusnya seperti sudah jatuh ditimpa tangga:
    – ditambah dengan DSAI yang tipu daya
    – menjual hak Bangsa memukau sedaya upaya
    – kalau dulu ramai terus terpedaya
    – Sekarang terhakis kepercayaan saya
    Benar kita perlu menghormati kaum lain, tetapi:
    – Kenapa kita perlu memberi peha sesudah kehilangan betis?
    – Kenapa mereka meminta hak pemimpin kita tak dapat menangkis?
    – Bila mereka mengata itu menuju keseimbangan
    – Bila kita menangkis dikata perkauman dan mengacau keharmonian
    Kami muak dengan gelagat pemimpin kerajaan Pak Lah dan juga pemimpin pembangkang DSAI yang tidak serius dan tidak tegas menangani isu kami sebagai rakyat dan menenggelamkan Melayu….masing-masing mementingkan diri serta famili hingga keadaan negara semua-nya tak menjadi.
    Ramai (termasuk saya yang terpedaya) dan terasa:
    – Kalau dulu Tun harus berhenti
    – Sekarang masanya Tun perlu kembali
    Tanpa Tun, kemana saja kami pergi terasa kehilangan kegemilangan Malaysia walaupun baru sekarang timbul motto Cemerlang Terbilang Gemilang.
    Tun, Semuga dipanjangkan umur dan teruskan perjuangan!
    Isi hati pertama kali-nya,
    Che Mah

    salam Tun,
    Some commentators have very interesting experiences and articles to share.I thank bplus and AMAR from a previous topic.
    excerpts from bplus;
    Interestingly, I had learned that the American marines were taught about the individual races NATURAL CHARACTER as part of their security intelligence. One of the marines had told me that he was taught the natural behaviour of the Malays, Chinese and Indians natural instinct. He said, if you do not pay what you owed to the Malays, as long as you do not make them angry, you are safe. In fact if, you were lucky just like most of the Chinese and Indians in Malaysia, the Malays when they are happy with you even their land and citizenship would be made available for you. Just look how simple the Malays had given Singapore away just like that! No blood spill. Almost all Chinese and Indians born in Malaysia were given citizenship. Please, this did not happened in Indonesia during Pak Soekarno time yah!
    As for the Chinese, even if you owed them five cents and you refused to pay back, be prepared that they would go after you till they get back what you owed them. You may say and do what you like trying to make them angry nothing would happen.
    As for the Indians, be careful when dealing with them, they would twist and turn their words. Like an old Malay’s proverb which said if you see an Indian and a snake which one you would kill first? Do you all know?
    So, to the majority of the Chinese and Indians please think wisely before you say anything bad, seriously could hurt, unreasonable demands from the hospitality and kindness of the Malays. Don’t be like an old Malay proverb which said, di-beri betis hendak peha, di-beri peha kepala pula!
    my comments;
    WE MALAYS BETTER START CHANGING OUR NATURAL CHARACTER!
    excerpts from AMAR;
    Anwar Ibrahim — British Empire Tool To Recolonize Malaysia
    by Mike Billington September 5, 2008
    In most countries around the world, among the many which are now
    being subjected to political destabilization by the British and
    their asset George Soros, the guiding hand and the financing of
    the British Foreign Office is hidden behind the facade of
    “democratic” opposition forces demanding regime change over
    local issues, diverting attention from the global financial
    collapse and the danger of world war sweeping across the globe.
    Not so in Malaysia, the former British colony, where a
    self-confessed agent of the economic and strategic policies of
    the new Brutish Empire, and its leading agents in the U.S.
    neoconservative and green-fascist movements, is openly declaring
    himself to be the new savior of Malaysia.
    This satanic savior, well-financed after several years of
    lucrative positions in Washington and London neocon think tanks,
    universities, and cushy World Bank positions, has declared his
    intention to buy off (“persuade”) enough Members of Parliament
    to join his opposition coalition and take over the majority,
    making himself Prime Minister. He even won a by-election last
    month in Penang, making himself the official leader of the
    opposition in the Parliament.
    Meet Anwar Ibrahim, known to readers of {EIR} as a spokesman
    for:
    1. George Soros: When Soros led the speculative assault
    on Malaysia and its neighbors in 1997, then-Prime Minister Dr.
    Mahathir Mohamad, alone in Asia, stood up to the hedge funds, and
    the IMF and World Bank, by imposing currency controls against the
    speculators, thus, saving his population from the devastation
    which crushed his neighbors in Asia. Anwar, who served as Deputy
    Prime Minister and Finance Minister to Dr. Mahathir at the time,
    had demanded that the speculators be given free rein, and imposed
    “IMF conditions without the IMF,” until Mahathir fired him and
    imposed currency controls. Anwar defended the speculators,
    admitting that he had circulated Soros’s papers to policymakers
    in Malaysia, and defended Soros when Mahathir called Soros a
    thief and a moron. Soros went on a tirade against Mahathir,
    threatening that “the country will be destroyed,” and insisting
    that Mahathir “needs to be removed from office.” Anwar led
    anarchist demonstrations against Mahathir, calling him corrupt
    and undemocratic.
    2. Paul Wolfowitz: The arch-neocon, and a leading
    architect of the illegal and insane war on Iraq on behalf of
    Britain’s Tony Blair and Dick Cheney, has been an outspoken
    defender of his friend Anwar, providing numerous employment
    opportunities for him in the United States, when he was released
    from prison in 2004, after serving six years on corruption and
    sodomy charges. In 2005, when Wolfowitz was appointed to head the
    World Bank by George W. Bush, Anwar praised him as a man who
    “passionately believes in freedom, and understands the issues of
    poverty, environment degradation, living conditions and health
    issues which are very much a World Bank agenda.” At the World
    Bank, Wolfowitz set about cutting off funding for nations which
    refused to accept Anglo-American dictates, perhaps killing even
    more people than he had through his job at the U.S. Defense
    Department.
    3. Al Gore: Even before his genocidal campaign to shut
    down Third World development under the war-cry of the fraudulent
    “global warming” hoax, Gore travelled to Malaysia in November
    1998, two months after Dr. Mahathir took his stand against the
    IMF and the speculators, to speak at an APEC (Asia-Pacific
    Economic Cooperation) meeting. Anwar was leading violent mobs on
    the streets of Kuala Lumpur, while Gore, speaking before Prime
    Minister Mahathir and leaders from across Asia and the Pacific,
    praised the anarchists on the streets as “the brave people of
    Malaysia” demanding “reform”–which to Gore and Anwar meant
    following IMF conditionalities, and allowing unrestrained foreign
    control of the economy. Malaysian Trade Minister Rafidah Aziz
    called it “the most disgusting speech I’ve heard in my life,”
    while Mahathir said, “We should fry him.”
    – Anwar’s Money –
    Now, let’s look at some of Anwar’s employment in the years
    after his release from prison, on his first sodomy charge in
    2005-7:
    {{1. Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies
    (SAIS),}} where his pal Wolfowitz had previously been the dean.
    {{2. Georgetown University}} in Washington, D.C.
    {{3. St. Anthony’s College, Oxford,}} where he met often
    with Al Gore, who was running a hedge fund in London, profitting
    from the fraudulent “carbon swaps” created by the global
    warming hoax.
    {{4.}} Consultant to the World Bank,}} hired by Bank
    Director Paul Wolfowitz.
    {{5.}} {{AccountAbility} }, London, Honorary President.
    {{6. International Crisis Group}}, a leading Soros-financed
    NGO (Non-Government Organization) .
    {{7. Foundation for the Future,}} set up by Dick Cheney and
    his daughter Liz, to promote regime change in Southwest Asia.
    Anwar allowed Wolfowitz to put his girlfriend on the Foundation’s
    payroll, a bit of corruption which ultimately cost Wolfowitz his
    job at the World Bank.
    As one Malaysian offical told this writer upon hearing of
    Anwar’s numerous positions in Washington and London: “Ah, so
    this is how they plan to finance Anwar’s subversion of
    Malaysia!”
    – Anwar’s Policies –
    Anwar makes no effort to hide his intention to stop
    industrial and infrastructural development in Malaysia, and
    throughout the developing sector generally. Immediately after
    being ousted in 1998, Anwar told the {Asian Wall Street Journal}
    that developing countries should stop “pointing a finger at
    speculators and put their houses in order first,” by ending
    their “ambitious plans for outlandish projects.”
    In response to a public question from this writer in 2005,
    Anwar defended his effort to impose IMF austerity and free-trade
    dictates on Malaysia, despite the fact that such policies
    subsequently destroyed the economies of Malaysia’s neighbors. The
    IMF policies were “beneficial,” he said, in trying to stop the
    major infrastructure projects of the Mahathir government,
    especially the Bakun Dam in Sarawak, which were only meant to
    enrich Mahathir’s “cronies.” “Yes, the growth was robust,” he
    said, “the people escaped poverty–but that was all on the
    surface. Underneath, there was corruption, no transparency,
    authoritarian leaders, and no free media.” He also told {The
    Age} of Australia that the 1997-98 IMF/hedge fund looting and
    destruction of the Southeast Asian economies was “a gale of
    creative destruction that shook the complacency of Asian
    societies and governments.”
    So why is this British imperial agent still tolerated in
    Malaysia? The world financial system is collapsing, with
    speculation- driven hyperinflation driving up oil, raw materials,
    and food prices, beyond the control of any local government. The
    current government in Malaysia, lead by Mahathir’s former deputy
    Abdullah Badawi, was at first unwilling to acknowledge that
    Malaysia would be crushed without taking emergency measures to
    protect against the impending crash. When fuel and food prices
    skyrocketed, popular discontent was aimed at the government,
    which allowed Anwar’s fascist diatribes to appeal to an angry
    population.
    In the last few months, however, the Abdullah government has
    acknowledged the impact of the global crisis on his country, and
    adopted emergency measures to double food production, encouraged
    the first moves toward a serious nuclear power program, and
    coordinated with the other Southeast Asian countries on working
    with China and India on regional development projects and joint
    financial defense. These measures are necessary, but not
    adequate, to meet the crisis, but it is all too obvious what
    would happen if the British were to get their boy Anwar into
    power.
    {For an analysis of Anwar’s philosophical dedication to the
    ideology of the British Empire, see “Anwar Ibrahim Defends
    Asia’s Colonial Master” by this writer, at

    TUN dan para commentators,
    Kini ramai dikalangan kalangan rakyat Malaysia mempersoalkan tentang kontrak sosial yang melibatkan hak keistimewaan orang melayu dan bumiputra. Ramai juga telah mencadangkan tentang BANGSA MALAYSIA. Apa kah itu bangsa malaysia yang sebenarnya? Pada mereka ialah kesamarataan. Apakah kesamarataan ini boleh menyesuaikan atau memuaskan “HATI” masing masing?
    BANGSA MALAYSIA hanya boleh dicapai apabila struktur ekonomi kaum bumiputra menjadi kukuh serta kuat, dan juga apabila kaum bumiputra ini boleh berdiri sendiri tanpa bantuan kerajaan- termasuk juga kesemua kaum bumiputra iaitu Melayu,Kadazan,Iban,Dayak,Orang Asli,Penan, dan sebagainya bersatu dibawah satu bumbung organisasi (politik,kerajaan,swasta,berkumpulan,etc)
    Selagi ada kemiskinan atau jurang ekonomi- selagi itu lah BANGSA MALAYSIA ini tidak akan dapat diwujudkan. Salah satu sebab mengapa TUN DR MAHATHIR ingin sangat memodenkan Malaysia ialah supaya masyarakat bumiputra ini dapat bertukar fikiran- untuk memajukan diri dan mengamalkan pesaingan. Tetapi ini semua dicantas baik oleh pihak pembangkang dengan menggunakan isu isu agama yang boleh menghalang majoriti masyarakat bumiputra untuk berfikiran luas dan akhirnya menyindirkan diri lalu bertukar menjadi benci dalam untuk memajukan diri dengan bangsa lain.
    Konsep serta falsafah sikap “keserdehanaan” yang dipromosikan oleh kebanyakkan pihak pembangkang telah berjaya mengekangkan kemajuan akal fikiran majoriti kaum bumiputra terutamanya melayu. Ia telah berjaya mematahkan “SEMANGAT” orang melayu untuk melangkah lebih jauh dalam memajukan diri mengikut peredaran zaman. Mereka juga telah menggunakan isu “PERGAULAN BEBAS” sebagai salah satu senjata untuk memesongkan pemikiran bumiputra terutama orang melayu supaya jangan bercampur dengan masyarakat lain dan ini telah menyebabkan pemikiran sempit menjadi penyakit yang mudah merebak terhadap orang orang melayu.
    BANGSA MALAYSIA akan hanya boleh dicapai apabila peratusan kaum bumiputra untuk mengawal kuasa ekonomi lebih besar daripada kaum lain. BANGSA MALAYSIA akan hanya boleh berlaku apabila kaum bumiputra berani untuk memajukan diri dari segi ekonomi. Kaum bumiputra harus bersedia menjadi pesaing hebat terutamanya disektor swasta. Tujuan kerajaan memberi peluang “lebih” terhadap bumiputra ialah supaya mereka dapat mengeksplotasikan perniagaan ekonomi sektor swasta. Jadi selagi bumiputra hidup dengan berprinsipkan kemiskinan akal pemikirannya, dan selagi jurang ekonomi masih ada- maka BANGSA MALAYSIA tidak akan dapat dicapai.

    Permisi Tun,
    Social contract yang dimenterai dalam perlembagaan negara itu ia lah untuk memastikan semua orang dalam negara ini dapat berpeluang untuk menikmati kehidupan yang selesa. Tidak ada kaum yang tertinggal kebelakang ,tertindas dari segi ekonomi terutama sekali.
    Dimalaysia pembangunan infrastuktur telah dibangunkan dengan jaya nya semasa era Tun.
    Era Pak lah berpaksi kepada rohaniah tapi hasil nya menikam diri Paklah . Ai nya gagal , manusia sekarang tidak berminat dan tidak ambil peduli konsep itu. Bab ugama ini semua kaum dalam malaysia ini tidak ada masalah , tidak ada perbalahan tentang antara ugama per se.
    Sekarang rakyat tertekan oleh inflasi, lemah kuasa membeli,lemah nilai matawang,harga barang yang melambung tinggi, suasana pasaran saham yang malapdsbnya.
    Ini semua yang memeningkan kepala keluarga, kesan nya apa yang selalu bermain difikiran rakyat- kenapa kerajaan yang ada ini tidak
    membuat sesuatu yang boleh melegakan tekan hidup ini.

    Salam Tun,
    Your article has reflected on whats happening after previous disastrous election result by the ruling party. However worried we are nothing will happen unless the present leadership being removed frm their position.
    we have to admit it everybodies regardless Malay, Chinease and Indian are scared and curious about our shakey racial relationship but we got to be honest that we do not want such fragile relationship destroyed. Therefore all races need to combine effort to safeguard the inter-racial relationship. And there is no other ways in doing apart from our joint effort to remove the present government leadership.
    Hope Tun can cast a way in doing this.
    Selamat Berpuasa

    3yrs suspension..? Not enough & it’ll pass by quickly. He can still order his goons to light a bigger matchstick for him…
    PM cannot control his ‘gang’ anymore. The BN & UMNO goons no longer respect his position.
    All we hear are the politicians problems & whinings….!
    No word about any investors to invest in our country.
    Just all these drama minggu kini……!!
    And the barbarian actor..
    Tun, you sure you joining UMNO again..?
    I thought u won’t as long as Badawi is still PM…?

  389. Baba Melaka Sep 11,2008 11:15 AM

    Dear Tun,
    I strongly believe, the root of the problem lies in the fact that the rakyat are suffering from a depressed economy, rising cost of living, high inflation, etc. As a result, they find it increasingly difficult to feed their family and to maintain their lifestyles (just maintaining; we are not even talking of improving it!). All races, be it the Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans, Ibans, etc are feeling the effects and pinch.
    What most of us forgot, even though it happened recently, is that during the bullish years of 1990-1997, very few ever question the “social contract” or the rights of others. And even if they did, nobody would have bothered.
    WHY? Because everyone is busy enjoying themselves in the bouyant economy. Everybody, from the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians, the Ibans, the Kadazans, etc, is too busy eating the cake, to even worry about the crumbs. That’s when you have a big cake to share; more than enough to go around to satisfy the hungry stomachs.
    However, when you have a small cake, then everyone will insist on their rights to eat the cake. People will be looking at reasons to exclude others from eating the cake and at the same time justifying why they should have a piece of it. All because the cake is not big enough to share. Worse, people will even fight for the crumbs as well.
    And for me, that is the crux of the whole matter; people trying to stake their claim on the ever shrinking piece of cake.

  390. Sulaiman Hj Ibrahim Sep 11,2008 11:11 AM

    Clarification
    1. Your decision to go back to UMNO was quite surprising but understandable after reading your recent article.
    2. What remains a mystery is that, would your entry to UMNO allow you unlimited access to its members and the Malay communities? Will you have the freedom to speak and express yourself?
    3. Since there is no change of leadership in UMNO, would your presence back in UMNO be only a symbol of UMNO trying to unify itself. I would think this would be a futile attempt as in actual fact any attempt that you make to improve or solidify UMNO through the inside would only be thwart by the current leadership’s minions, as they would assume any changes you make and suggest would in actual fact undermine the current leadership of UMNO.
    4. I feel that the question of the current social contract by various races recently have always been present in all races ever since Merdeka. If they are not present, wouldn’t we group ourselves as Malay, Chinese and Indian when the talk among ourselves and only Malaysian when we present ourselves to foreigners?
    5. The identification of an individual based on race has always been present among all Malaysians. What has always been kept in check is the self respect we have for each other. The emergence of anti-social behavior based on race and the disregard of self respect for each race very likely stem from frustration of individuals of the current situation.
    6. Malaysia’s current situation are quite different from when you were the PM. Corruption seemed to have increased significantly, economy seemed to be slowing down, cost of living seemed to be increasing at an alarming rate, politicians/ current leaders seemed to be constantly bickering with each other rather than getting in touch with grassroots and governments planning or ruling seemed to change from time to time. All this contribute to the frustration.
    7. Based on the above it is felt that a change of leadership and the selection of a suitable leader would be the best and efficient way to solve the current problem. You entry into UMNO would on be a delay in the evitable.
    8. But, then again I can always be wrong!

    If you read the comments from the readers carefully, most of the malaysians know the real history of Malaysia. The history curriculum in the school is to brain-wash the book-worms and dummies (part of it), and of course for passing the exam only. hehehe.

    Good day, Yang Berbahgia Tun,
    Firstly i tend to agree on majority of people asking in silence for Pak Lah to step down…He is demorilizing the UMNO firstly and BN in general.
    Honestly from my personal obsevation, the talk on racial discomfort is definetly there….more talk than ever. When i talked with my non-malays friends it seems kind of “kekok” uttering the only need conversation -emollient- as not to hurts or create a tense situations.That mean no politic please.
    Lastly I am glad for you to resurface into the limelight of UMNO. I pray for the good of all malays and Malaysia. We have strive for the last 20 odd years. I am hoping Tun be able to constructively remidied the current situation so we be able to concentrate on others rather than talking about politics (for the last 5 months).
    Mistakes – done. So with your vast experiences I hope we be able to endevour to our ZAMAN GEMILANG.

    Tun,
    It make sense now for PM to reconsider, with respect, his time departure. The best time is always before the December 2008 ends.Salam untuk Tun sekeluarga dan Selamat BerHari Raya AidilFitri, Maaf Zahir Batin dari nookvillage.

    This country is on self destruction mode at the moment. Inaction rules the day.
    The opposition is having a field day taking full advantage of the situation.
    Perhaps they are in cohorts with the opposition?
    The social contract issue does not mean anything to the youngsters of today. They only believe what Anwar says. Tut tut!

    salam Tun,
    It’s good to hear TS Muhyiddin’s statement about you joining back UMNO.I trust you,sir.I’m sure there are things going on behind closed doors that many people are not privy to.
    TO ALL UMNO LEADERS,
    PLEASE GIVE PROPER RECOGNITION TO TUN AND FOLLOW HIS ADVICE.WE THE ORDINARY RAKYAT IS WATCHING YOUR EVERY MOVE.FAILING TO DO THE RIGHT THING WILL RESULT IN THE DOWNFALL OF UMNO & BN IN THE NEXT GE AS I,FOR ONE,WILL REGISTER A PROTEST VOTE (ALONG WITH ELIGIBLE FAMILY MEMBERS).
    I AM SURE THERE ARE MANY OTHERS LIKE ME OUT THERE.
    To rarunasalam,
    Wow,what a spin on the Social Contract.Are you a Tamil movie fan?Are you a LAWYER?
    I HATE LAWYERS…

    After knowing the background of Ahmad, I started to understand the rationale of DR. M’s statement in “Pohon Maaf 1”. Tun, Are you far relative with Ahmad some time in grandparent’s generation? I wonder.
    One more thing to clarify here, Stern action was taken on defiant Ahmad merely because he has never been in remorse on his slip-of-tongue statement. BN punished him for his arrogance, not merely on his racist statement.
    Peace to be with Malaysia.

    I think Tun doesn’t understand how the people think today. People are not robot which obey certain rules without questioning it. We will change according to enviornment. A minority of Malays think that in order to compete in todays world, they should compete not just inside the country but also in global terms. Therefore, if they stuck to the social contract forever which is definitely good for them, then they will not achieve what is truly victory in todays economy.
    No doubt, social contact has its own benefits if it is followed correctly. But unfortunately, the Malays have been using it as excuses, shield, or short cuts in order to gain benefits for themselves. So, there are certain Malays out there that think all this must stop or set a limit in order not to sway too off from the original purpose of the social contract. If this is not done, Malaysia would be ruin.
    I personaly do not believe in right or wrong, thruth or lies. I believe in balances. Thats is what have been driving this planet for millions of years. Not that I don’t believe in justice but what I see in the world today, justice has become a very vouge word.
    Tun cannot control how the people think, nor can anyone else. If the Malays still use the sosical contrat to protect themselve, then sooner or later this country will be off balance. When that happens, one word “Chaos”.
    Thats all I have to say, thank you.

  399. chean Sep 11,2008 10:59 AM

    TUN,
    Mungkin hari ini ramai yang tidak pedulikan lagi soal jasa, perjuangan serta pengorbanan datuk nenek kita. Darah yang jadi taruhan sudah tidak bernilai kepada generasi Melayu hari ini.
    Kerana itu kepada mereka semuanya sama dan tidak ada yang istimewa.
    Saya teringatkan suatu pertelingkahan yang berlaku diantara dua ahli kongress Amerika kepada satu topik, seorang Taiwanese American berkata, “I’m the citizen of America”, dan jawapan ahli kongress Mat saleh pula, “yes you are the citizen of America but you are not AMERICAN”.
    Bagi sebuah negara yang terkenal dengan FREEDOM FOR ALL, ni pun tak terlepas dari soal ketuanan, inikan pula MALAYSIA.
    Tun adalah sejarah yang masih hidup oleh itu marilah kita sama-sama belajar dan hormati serta hargai apa yang kita ada.
    salam hormat TUN.

    agak nye kenapa ye??? takut??? bimbang??? terancam??? terasa cita2 dah jadi payah nak dilaksana???
    lu pikir la sendiri…

  401. Shamsulfahmi Shamsudin Sep 11,2008 10:50 AM

    Dear Tun and fellow bloggers,
    Many factors may have contributed tendencies towards racial disharmonies. Among others:
    Ø The age old economic imbalance between the Malays and Non Malays. I.e. Open Tender? Malays does not control the raw materials supply. What happen if open tender is practiced? Who can offer better price?
    Ø The existence and continuity of Chinese School and Tamil School when your aim is bangsa Malaysia. I.e. The stupid thing is Malays may not know what transpired in DAP’s “Ceramah in Chinese” to lodge any complaint if applicable,
    Ø The desertion of our National Language, Bahasa Melayu. I.e. The Japanese and French are using their own language – see where they are.
    Ø The topology of the social landscape, i.e. Existence of Malay Area such as Kampung Baru, KL / Indian Area like in Klang perhaps / Chineses Area like Bukit Bintang
    Ø Lack of policies and enforcements in ensuring recruitment of qualified Bumiputras in the Private Sectors. By the way 95% Head of HR Departments of All Public Listed Companies in Malaysia are Non Malays – so go figure. Do they care if you are UiTM students or not? Don’t talk about corporate ladder if majority of the 30% Bumi quotas fulfilled is at he bottom.
    The Social Contract, which is meant to “Keep It Together”, is difficult to uphold if the dominant party that is UMNO is deemed corruptive, mismanaged and weak.
    Of course it is undemocratic to ask all Malays to unite under one party – UMNO, i.e. no PKR or PAS. But that’s the intelligent way to assure that the political power and dominance are with the Malays. Should the Malays let go of its majority power? Could there be a blood shed if the Malay majority loses its dominance and sidelined?
    The power give to the Malay comes with great responsibilities to assure that racial disharmonies are reduced if not diminished. THEN WE TALK ABOUT PROGRESS AND PROPER GOVERNANCE.
    To err is human. We can forgive but can we really forget. There is no point building riches when all of it could be burned down in just one day.
    Lastly, to all Malays reading this let us sing “Warisan” before we go to sleep today. Following are the lyrics to the song.
    WARISAN
    Anak Kecil Main Api
    Terbakar Hatinya Yang Sepi
    Airmata Darah Bercampur Keringat
    Bumi Dipijak Milik Orang
    Nenek Moyang Kaya Raya
    Tergadai Seluruh Harta Benda
    Akibat Sengketa Sesamalah Kita
    Cinta Lenyap Di Arus Zaman
    Indahnya Bumi Kita Ini
    Warisan Berkurun Lamanya
    Hasil Mengalir Ke Tangan Yang Lain
    Pribumi Merintih Sendiri
    Masa Depan Sungguh Kelam
    Kan Lenyap Peristiwa Semalam
    Tertutuplah Hati Terkunci Mati
    Maruah Peribadi Dah Hilang
    Kini Kita Cuma Tinggal Kuasa
    Yang Akan Menentukan Bangsa
    Bersatulah Hati Bersama Berbakti
    Pulih Kembali Harga Diri
    Kita Sudah Tiada Masa Majulah Dengan Gagah Perkasa
    Jangan Lalai Teruskan Usaha
    Melayu Kan Gagah Di Nusantara (3x)

    Salam buat Tun,
    Saya sangatlah sedih dengan apa yang berlaku di dalam negara kita sekarang ini dan yang amat menyedihkan lagi apabila Pak Lah tidak bertindak dengan bijaksana untuk menghadapi serta memastikan perkara ini tidak akan menjadi ‘Gunung Berapi’. Manakah pendirian serta image sebagai Ketua/leader? Saya harap Pak Lah menyelesaikan perkara ini atau pun letak jawatan dan berikan jawatannya kepada seseorang yang lebih berkaliber dan saya juga harap rakyat Malaysia (Melayu, Cina dan India) tidak akan memilih Dato’ Anwar sebab beliaulah, Malaysia sekarang ini menjadi kucar-kacir. Dato’ Anwar hanya pentingkan diri demi tamakkan kerusi Perdana Menteri, sanggup pecahbelah rakyat untuk kepentingan beliau! Semasa beliau menjadi TPM, beliau hampir menjual negara kita dan fikirkanlah apa akan berlaku jikalau beliau menjadi PM? Fikirkanlah tentang keamanan serta ekonomi negara kita, janganlah kita berpecah dan menjadi seperti negara yang lemah dari semua aspek lebih-lebih lagi ekonomi. Apabila ini berlaku percayalah rakyat Malaysia akan menghadapi pengangguran yang teruk, ekonomi merosot, inflasi yang tinggi dan paling menyedihkan apabila negara maju tidak mahu memberikan visa perjalanan kepada kita kerana apa yang berlaku dalam negara! ingatlah kita semua rakyat Malaysia dan harus bersatu-padu demi BANGSA DAN NEGARA!

    semasa pilihanraya yang lalu, Tun masih bersama UMNO tetapi kalah juga 5 negeri.Walaupun Tun kembali ke UMNO bukannya Tun boleh bersuara.Badawi masih juga berkuasa.Jadi kenapa Tun tidak tubuhkan satu parti berbilang kaum untuk menyelamat Malaysia.Itu baru semua nanti-nantikan.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.
    Tukarkan Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
    Dia masih tidak respon pada suasana yang amat sensitif ini.Masih ada ahli politik peringkat atasan sebegini daif tentang dunia?Teman seperjuangan dengan Tun sejak muda lagi.Macamana dia boleh tersasar dari matlamat dan asas perjuangan UMNO?
    Apa jadi pada ahli-ahli UMNO?Masih tidak berani bersuara?
    Ok jugak Tun balik pada UMNO.Saya pun baru balik ke rumah.
    Saya juga racist.Tapi cuba untuk tidak menjadi seperti darah panas Tun satu masa dulu.Ultra Malays.
    Bila bercakap dengan kaum lain saya tidak memberikan idea-idea yang bagus,cuma tidak mahu orang tahu strategi perniagaan saya.Oleh itu saya hanya memberikan alasan-alasan yang asas.Macam isteri saya mengandung jadi saya tidak boleh buka kedai dari jam 10 pagi sampai 10 malam.Rasanya tiada orang berniaga macam saya setakat ini.
    Nampak malas dan tidak berkualiti.Tapi setelah 3 tahun dia orang akan cakap,itu kedai you punya,you tahulah…ikut suka you.
    Saya tertarik pada pandangan Pengerusi Johor Corporation.Datuk Mohamed Ali.Beliau bercerita tentang cara penyelesaian korporat semasa kegawatan 1997.
    Apa yang beliau praktikkan adalah tentang ekonomi Islam pintar.Zakat,sedekah,etc sedangkan masa itu dalam kegawatan ekonomi.
    Yang terbaru MARA juga memperkenalkan ‘Jihad Bisnes’ (idea Johor Corporation) hingga ke peringkat kebangsaan.Tapi hanya praktikal pada permainan SAHIBA pada masa itu.
    Mungkin idea-idea ini perlu diolah kepada peringkat ekonomi Malaysia dan saya tertanya-tanya kenapa agak-agaknya Datuk Mohamed Ali tidak terlibat dalam perancangan Ekonomi Negara.
    Terima kasih Tun.

  406. ezani Sep 11,2008 10:39 AM

    Hello Tun
    Thank you for your blog. First of all, there is a very, very important thing I want to know. All this while you have been rejecting Pak Lah and you have left UMNO because of your stance. Recently I heard in the news (The Star) that you have decided to re-join UMNO barely 3 months after you left. Are you making a U-turn? Or have you reached an agreement that Muhyiddin speak out to ask Pak Lah to resign early (as he did in a speech yesterday) as a condition for your rejoining. Do you still want to rejoin a party which the people have rejected? You may say it is because of Pak Lah but there is already a negative tainted image of BN especially the so many horrible things that have happened recently in the past. Why not form a new party with young dynamic leadership based on Islam? Kindly answer me privately if you wish in my e-mail : ezanihalim@gmail.com
    Secondly, why have you not come up with a blog on the Datuk Mansor and recent Gerakan issue on Penang? It is a serious matter and I would like to know your thoughts on this.
    Lastly, I have extracted what I think are the most important points from the contents of your blog for some comments :-
    4.. They disagree with the Tunku giving the one million citizenship without regard for the conditions for getting citizenship
    12. I did not like putting this on my blog. But I have no access to the Government.
    13. Malaysia had remained stable for half a century because sensitive issues were not publicly discussed.
    For no 4., this is the first time I have heard about Tunku’s 1-million free citizinship of malaysia. Pardon my history. I don’t know who took it up but it may give the Chinese an additional 1 million people advantage over the Malays.
    If the Govt had administered using the principles of Islam, racism would not be a problem. History has spoken for itself and see how large an empire Islam had expanded into, up till Spain and all races and nations considered themselves Muslims submitting to the will of God rather than Chinese and Malays. Unfortunately, under BN and UMNO, since 1957, nothing has been done in this manner which is why you still have the Chinese being Chinese and not knowing about Allah SWT and the Malays being Malays who know Allah SWT and Islam.
    For no 12, I am a bit disturbed and worried by this, frankly. Are you saying that once you go back into UMNO and BN gives you a powerful post once again, you will neglect this blog and ignore the input of bloggers who make up the Malaysian population? It is times like this when you are not busy with the duties of a Prime Minister, that you should listen to us and how we reflect on your leadership and what you have done in the past and also current political events. However, I distrust a Govt who, when handed the reigns of power, suddenly forget by whom the power was handed to and within a very short time forgot about your past acheivements. I blame Pak Lah for not being grateful you selected him and I blame you for selecting Pak Lah. We must be responsible for our actions especially when picking an important successor such as the Prime Minister of a country,
    For no 13, I think this is a very true and wise statement. I have to step back and applaud our past leaders and you who took this course of action of cooperation and avoidance of open discussion of sensitive issues and collaboration among the races. it is what makes Malaysia so successful today without any racial tensions since 1969. I applaud our leaders and you on this. But always there is this possibility of things breaking down such as what is happening now. The best way is disintegration of the races through Islam where everyone call themselves Moslems. The concept of everyone calling them Malaysians as you must know is a waste of time and does not help anybody dunia and akhirat. I am amazed how BN and UMNO have ruled Malaysia since 1957 without even thinking of putting Islam at the forefront of nationwide governance.

    All commented here, hopefully without racist-minded during your post of comment, should read comment expressed in malaysia today.

  408. Saleh The Uddin Sep 11,2008 10:37 AM

    Dear All,
    Got this story from a friend, wish to share it:
    Story told by a man which is most frightening yet thought-provoking experiences of his life.
    He had been on a long flight. The first warning of the approaching problems came when the sign on the airplane flashed on: ‘Fasten your seat belts.’
    Then, after a while, a calm voice said, ‘We shall not be serving the beverages at this time as we are expecting a little turbulence. Please be sure your seat belt is fastened.’
    As he looked around the aircraft, it became obvious that many of the passengers were becoming apprehensive. Later, the voice of the announcer said, ‘We are so sorry that we are unable to serve the meal at this time. The turbulence is still ahead of us.’
    And then the storm broke. The ominous cracks of thunder could be heard even above the roar of the engines. Lightening lit up the darkening skies and within moments that great plane was like a cork tossed around on a celestial ocean. One moment the airplane was lifted on terrific currents of air; the next, it dropped as if it were about to crash.
    The man confessed that he shared the discomfort and fear of those around him. He said, ‘As I looked around the plane, I could see that nearly all the passengers were upset and alarmed. Some were praying.
    The future seemed ominous and many were wondering if they would make it through the storm. And then, I suddenly saw a girl to whom the storm meant nothing. She had tucked her feet beneath her as she sat on her seat and was reading a book.
    Everything within her small world was calm and orderly. Sometimes she closed her eyes, then she would read again; then she would straighten her legs, but worry and fear were not in her world. When the plane was being buffeted by the terrible storm, when it lurched this way and that, as it rose and fell with frightening severity, when all the adults were scared half to death, that marvelous child was completely composed and unafraid.’
    The man could hardly believe his eyes. It was not surprising therefore, that when the plane finally reached its destination and all the passengers were hurrying to disembark, he lingered to speak to the girl whom he had watched for such a long time.
    Having commented about the storm and behavior of the plane, he asked why she had not been afraid.
    The sweet child replied,
    ‘Sir, my Dad is the pilot and he is taking me home.’
    when you are sure of your self, your confident level is steady and you are never shaky you do the things calmly and successfully.

  409. dazrean Sep 11,2008 10:35 AM

    Saya tak nampak kenapa Tun patut masuk UMNO kembali. Selagi Pak Lah dalam UMNO, saya tak rasa akan ada apa-apa perubahan. Pak Lah dan Geng Tingkat 4 akan terus pelekehkan TUN. Harap Tun fikirkan balik keputusan TUN. TQ

    Salam hormat ayahanda Tun,
    I completely concur with your views and hope your re entry into umno WOULD HELP TO IMPROVE THE AILING SITUATION. Ayahanda, it is sad that our leaders fail to enfoce HISTORY lesson in schools today. I am perturbed at the way our menteri pelajaran is behaving. the main question here is he himself does not have the full grasps of malaysian history?.
    History is equally important subject as are science and mathematics. sweeping historical facts uder the carpet are mainly creating a breathing grounds for instability. Facts are facts. the Americans who are more advanced accept historical facts as part of their daily life so goes the called for the would be President Barrack as African American indicating that his root was from Africa or even be publicly addressed as BLACK, and for the chinese they would be called Chinese American and for the indians they would be known as indians American or also termed as black. These are historical facts and cannot be erased. Let us face facts in Malaysia and not emotions.

  412. iqbalriad Sep 11,2008 10:31 AM

    Aslmkm YBhg Tun , semoga Bhg Tun sekeluarga berada di dalam rahmat Allah selalu. Saya nak minta buah fikiran YBHg Tun ada perkara berikut:
    1. Bagaimana cara terbaik mengatasi masalah jenayah yg timbul akibat kebanjiran pekerja asing/pendatang sehingga menimbulkan rasa panik dan rasa terancam dinegara sendiri. Isu ini adalah kesan lanjutan dasar kerajaan semasa YBhg Tun memimpin negara. Ianya kelihatan amat tak terkawal dan byk membawa keburukan dari kebaikan jangkapanjang.
    2. Bagaimana cara terbaik menanngani budaya korpsi/salahguna kedudukan di dalam masyarakat Malaysia khususnya orang melayu. Masalah ini dilihat telah mengagalkan wawasan dan gagasan YBhg Tun untuk memartabatkan bangsa melayu di Malaysia.
    3. Bagaimana cara untuk mengembalikan perjuangan asal bangsa melayu kepada landasan yang betul iaitu landasan perjuangan untuk bangsa dan negara bukan untuk “perut” dan “poket sendiri” sepertimana yang byk dibuat oleh pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO masakini. Budaya ini telah menjadi busung dan sekarang membusuk. Hingga hilang kepercayaan rakyat kepada mereka.Mereka telah lalai dan terlena dgn kekayaan dan kemewahan. Mohon pandangan dan buah fikiran YBhg Tun di atas semua perkara tersebut. Wslm

  413. Tunku Sofiah Jewa Sep 11,2008 10:28 AM

    Beloved Tun,
    In my book on “Malaysian Election Laws” (at pages 345-346) I had made reference to what I perceive as constituting our social contract as follows:
    “When the country obtained independence from Britain in 1957, the Alliance, a coalition of three racially-based parties of Malays, Chinese and Indians, was already in power. Its 51 members (out of a total membership of 52 elected seats) had been elected to the legislature two years earlier during the country’s first general elections. The three parties, namely the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the Malayan Chinese Association (MCA) and the Malayan Indian Congress (MIC) were led respectively by Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Tan Cheng Lock and Sambanthan. These were benign personages of our own Camelot era. During that period, the Malays were recognised by the other races as the natives of the country. The country was, after all, known as “Tanah Melayu”, literally, “Land of the Malays”. The Chinese and the Indians equally had no problem accepting the fact that they were immigrants in origin and in a spirit of give and take that was so prevalent during those halcyon days, government and administration of the country were placed under the charge of the Malays while the Chinese and the Indians had their hands full in the field of commerce and industry. The Tunku was often asked, in those early years of independence, how he managed to keep the many races in this country with different customs, religions and ways of life so peaceful and united. His answer was simple:
    ‘My reply was always that the answer lay in the nature of the people themselves, as all our component races are tolerant and friendly.’”
    There are those who attribute the occurrence of the May 13 incident as proof of the failure of my uncle’s simplistic faith in the nature of his people. For my part, I share his confidence that all peoples are generally tolerant and friendly.
    Diverse reasons have been attributed to the riots of May 13 but one factor which undeniably contributed to its occurrence was the raising of racist sentiments, such as excerpted below, by both sides of the political divide, including by those in authority, prior to the riots:
    •“Firstly, we want equality in this country. Secondly, we are for assurance of our way of life, our language, and our schools. Thirdly, we express the hope that we shall find economic advancement and economic equality.” (LIM CHONG EU, upon becoming President of MCA after defeating incumbent Tan Cheng Lock.)
    •“The MCA should be given 40 seats in the Federal Elections because in at least 39 constituencies the Chinese voters outnumbered the Malays…The Alliance Manifesto must clearly express its intention to review in general the implementation of its educational policy so that the medium of examinations in Chinese Schools could be the medium of instruction.” (Excerpt from a statement issued by the MCA CENTRAL WORKING COMMITTEE.)
    •“We have our last strength to rely upon. We are weak in all fields. We are economically weak. We are weak in the educational sphere. But we still have one last weapon of strength… This weapon is none other than our unity. This is the last force that is left in our hands, the hands of the Malays and the Muslims…With this unity we will save our people, we will better our lot…If this unity persists, by the will of God, I tell you, no power …on earth… can trample on us, no power can look down upon us and belittle us” (TAN SRI SYED JAAFAR ALBAR, UMNO Secretary-General.)
    •“Malai si! … Apa polis boleh buat – kita raja!…Buang semua Polis Melayu! … Mati Melayu – sakai pergi masok hutan! …Kuala Lumpur sekarang China punya! …Melayu keluar – apa lagi dudok sini! … Kita hentam lu; sekarang kita besar!…Ini negeri bukan Melayu punya! … Kita mahu halau Melayu!” (Excerpt from “THE MAY 13 TRAGEDY” published by the National Operations Council.)
    You may recall,Tun, that one of the measures taken by the authorities at the suggestion of NOC member Tun Dr. Ismail, was to amend the Sedition Act, 1948 to make it an offence for any one to raise issues on subjects of citizenship, national language, Malay rights and the sovereignty of Rulers. In an aide memoire entitled “The End of an Era” dated 30 August 1970, Tun Dr. Ismail summed up his views on the reason for this amendment:
    “We are grateful for May 13th incident because on reflecting on it for the last one year or more all Malaysians realise that a repetition of it will destroy the country and this is the reason why the people are ready to accept my proposal to isolate the sensitive issues and entrenched them fully in the Constitution. We are also grateful to May 13th because those of us who are willing to learn a lesson from it knows that we cannot return to the good old days of the Tunku era, when Government played by the ear. In future, there must be a pragmatic approach and there must be no fear to pursue unpopular measures to solve racial problems.”
    Thus, as you so well observe Tun, Malaysia had remained stable for half a century, because sensitive issues were not publicly discussed. There are, I daresay, Tun, millions around the country who, like me, share your concern about the rising of racist sentiments among Malays and non-Malays, some of which are reminiscent of (and at times even worse than) those quoted above.
    It has taken four Prime Ministers fifty years to build our nation to a status enviable and respected by the international community and it is rather sad to note that it may take less than a year for an inept Premier to bring our beloved country down to its knees.
    With much affection to you Tun, Tun Dr. Siti and the rest of your wonderful family.
    Tunku Sofiah Jewa

    Dear Tun,
    Your 2 & 11 of this article refers.
    First of all we need to know if this Social Contract is perpetually unchangeable? This Social Contract might be good and practically applicable at that time only. But throughout generations it has proven that it has always brought us the same racism problems, so do you think we should change and modify this Social Contract gradually until peaceful and harmony of the people in the country has restored?
    It is just like manufacturing cars. It needs to change & modify in its capacity and model severally & accordingly throughout this time before it is considered as practically excellence to be acceptable in the market.Always remember when TIME CHANGE, PEOPLE CHANGE AND THEIR NEED ALSO CHANGE!
    Tun, if your 2 & 11 in your article is true then it is the right time to take up precise steps to further improve the conditions of the Social contract for the benefit of our people regardless of their races. Our people will no more accept the name of Bumi or Non Bumi in near future, they are all Malaysian. This Social Contract is only used by certain politicians who always like to misuse this card for their political supports and achievements.
    Thank you and have a nice day.

    Assalammualaikum Tun,
    Syukur pd Allah(s.w.t) kerana telah menggerakkan hati Tun agar kembali kepada UMNO. Tun lah pejuang sejati, tetap berjuang walaupun dihina, dikeji & dicaci. Tun telah menyedarkan ramai melayu & bukan melayu yg suatu masa dulu memandang rendah & memperlekehkan usaha Tun membangunkan negara. Teruskan perjuangan Tun, kami semua akan sentiasa bersama Tun tak kira apa juga cabaran demi mempertahankan maruah & kedaulatan negara tercinta.
    Tentang AAB pendek je komen saya… 1. dia pekak kerana tak mendengar suara rakyat yang mahu dia berundur. 2. dia bisu kerana tak pandai nak bersuara demi mempertahankan maruah melayu dan negara. 3. dia buta bukan saje mata tapi hatinya sekali, kerana tak dapat melihat penderitaan rakyat. Secara logik bagaimana pemimpin sebegini nak memimpin negara ??? hidung tak mancung pipi yang tersorong-sorong.
    Selamat Berpuasa Tun,
    Jaga kesihatan Tun baik-baik…

    Yang disanjungi dan disayangi, Ayahanda Tun, semoga dilimpahi Allah segala kebaikan dan keberkatan….
    Salam sejahtera untuk semua
    1. Saya nerujuk kepada komen oleh yun pada Sep 10, 7:43pm;
    Saya amat menyanjungi dan mengormati komen anda itu dan saya percaya ramai di kalangan kaum bukan bumiputra yang sependapat dengan anda. Namun kepincangan pentadbiran kerajaan sekarang ini telah melahirkan beberapa pemimpin yang racist, yang mengambil kesempatan di atas kelemahan kerajaan untuk menjadi hero kaum masing-masing. Ketidakpekaan dan ketidaktegasan kerajaan adalah penyumbang kepada membiaknya sentimen-sentimen perkauman ini.
    2. Pentadbiran yang tiada lagi nilai-nilai murni di dalam Islam seperti adil, bersih, cekap, jujur, amanah dan berhemah ini telah membangkitkan kemarahan oleh semua rakyat tanpa mengira kaum.
    3. Pada pandangan saya, jika benar-benar memahami contract social ini, tidak timbul langsung masalah diskriminasi ke atas mana-mana kaum pun. Sedangkan sebelum ini pun, semua kaum dapat hidup aman dan harmoni. Jika nak dibandingkan kemiskinan, saya kira majoritinya kaum bumiputralah lebih terpinggir dari lain-lain kaum. Buktinya kita boleh lihat di kebanyakan kawasan-kawasan pedalaman. Ini adalah berpunca dari ketidakadilan pengurusan ekonomi oleh pemimpin-pemimpin hari ini.
    4. Berkaitan dengan asal usul bangsa, saya kira tak perlulah diungkit bagi menimbulkan isu-isu sensitive kaum lain, kerana sesudahnya jika kita halusi, senua kaum yang terdapat di Malaysia hari ini adalah punya sejarah yang berkait antara satu sama lain, silalah rujuk pembongkaran sejarah silam di;
    http://sejarahnagarakedah.blogspot.com/2007_04_01_archive.html
    Dari itu, bersama-samalah kita kembalikan kegemilangan Malaysia, bumi tercinta ini. Dan saya percaya, hanya Islam yang benar jua dapat memberi kehidupan yang baik untuk kita….

  419. anaco Sep 11,2008 10:13 AM

    Tun,
    Harap Tun dapat membantu membetulkan keadaan yg kacau bilau ini. Saya merasakan mungkin kita akan melihat 13 Mei yg kedua dalam masa tahun tahun yg mendatang jika keadaan ini tidak di perbetulkan. Jika org Melayu sentiasa dipersoalakan, dan terus ditindas oleh kerajaan dan juga didalam ekonomi bebas saya merasakan 13 mei itu lebih baik dari hidup dalam kehinaan. Sesunguhnya mati itu pasti untuk semua orang. Saya merasakan masalah ini semakin memuncak kerana ekonomi org melayu semakin menguncup secara keseluruhan(kebanyakan melayu). masalah rasuah yg berleluasa di dalam kerajaan dan juga swasta semakin parah dan meningkatkan jurang perbezaan ekonomi antara yg kaya dan miskin.saya merasakan bahawa didalam org melayu itu sendiri perlukan process penyaringan dan pembersihan dan hukuman hudud bagi orang Islam adalah salah satu cara utk mencapai matlamat ini. saya berharap supaya process penindasan dan tekanan keatas org melayu di perhebatkan supaya kita dapat melihat kebangkitan melayu secara total. mati iti pasti dan kehilangan hanya utk mereka yg memiliki bukannya org melayu yg secara keseluruhannya tidak mempunyai apa apa pada ekonomi negara ini.
    carpe manana.

  420. Pak Ali Sep 11,2008 10:11 AM

    Salam Tun,
    Sebenarnya kaum-kaum Cina dan India harus berterima kasih kerana diberi peluang untuk tinggal di bumi Malaysia dan menjadi rakyat melalui Social Contract. Cuba fikirkan, adakah mereka akan dilayan dan diberi peluang sehingga menjadi MP dalam parlimen dalam jumlah yang banyak jika mereka tinggal di United States, Britain dan Australia? Lupakan lah, negara-negara ini akan melayan mereka dengan lebih teruk, tetapi mereka masih tidak berterimakasih dan meminta hak yang lebih-lebih. Tak cukup lagikah dengan monopoli mereka dalam ekonomi, mempunyai kereta-kereta mewah, bungalow dan kondo mewah berbanding kaum Melayu yang baru hendak belajar untuk maju? Tidak cukup dengan itu semua, mereka juga mengambil peluang untuk membeli tanah dan kondo yang dikhaskan untuk Bumiputra dengan mengunakan nama orang Melayu. Lesen-lesen teksi yang berdaftarkan nama Melayu banyak dimiliki oleh orang Cina sebenarnya, all these is public knowledge! Pekerja-pekerja Melayu yang berkerja di Syarikat swasta yang dimiliki orang Cina banyak jadi mangsa diskriminasi dari segi peluang naik pangkat, kadar kenaikan gaji dan bonus. Semua ini memang berleluasa, tapi tidak apa sebab itu hak mereka sebagai pemilik syarikat.
    Tetapi, bila mereka menekan untuk menghapus hak kaum Melayu, itu sudah melampau! Tidak cukup lagi kah Guan Eng memerintah Pulau Pinang, masih nak impikan menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia. Perak sekarang walaupun di terajui oleh wakil PAS tapi di control oleh DAP, bahasa dan lenggok percakapan pun macam DAP sekarang. PAS should be ashamed of themselves!
    These people remind me of a prasite plant that leaves on a big tree, they will eventually outgrown and kill their host if not controlled properly.
    wassalam Tun

    -KUNCI- saya amat terharu membaca komen anda. hampir menitis air mata kegembiraan tatkala cuba berimaginasi perasaan anda. Saya sungguh bangga dengan sikap rendah diri dan semangat perpaduan anda.
    Kalaulah majoriti rakyat malaysia mempunyai sikap dan perasaan yang sama seperti anda saya yakin negara ini akan terus menikmati kegemilangannya berterusan sampai bila-bila…
    Saya juga seperti anda, mengharapkan seorang pemimpin yang bertanggungjawab seperti TUN DR MAHATHIR akan tampil memimpin negara tercinta ini..
    Kepada TUN selamat kembali ke UMNO saya bersyukur dengan keputusan TUN.. Moga-moga UMNO kembali menyinar…

  422. hati.malaysia Sep 11,2008 10:08 AM

    Dear Tun,
    I just read part of the comment made on this subject; I have to agree with OKM, who commented the following;
    ” I am a Malay and I am racist because that was how I was raised in Malaysia. We are racist lot – beyond repair.”
    I am non-Malay, and I have to say that I am a bit racist too, because I was ‘develop’ in this think. From the schooling to university to business world.
    I have the following story, which I hope all can read;
    1. Abu, had a big house, family and un-developed land
    2. One day, Mat-Salleh took over Abu house and land, they controlled and force Abu family to work on the land to profit the Mat Salleh
    3. Since the land was very resource full and Abu family is not enough to maximized the output, Mat Salleh brought Raju and family to work in the land.
    4. Now, Ah Chong see this opportunity and came to Mat Salleh and offer to work and trade. Mat Salleh accepted.
    5. After some time, Abu + Ah Chong + Raju demanded to Mat Salleh for independence.
    6. Mat Salleh agreed, but was worried with the status of Raju and Ah Chong, because this two immigrant been so long in this land and have created new family which is not accepted by their original land owner.
    7. After long negations with Abu, Ah Chong, Raju and Mat Salleh. Abu with big heart agree to accept Raju and Ah Chong and their family member.
    8. Mat Salleh being the ‘chairman’ draft one agreement called ‘social contract’ which Abu, Ah Chong and Raju agreed.
    9. This contract basically declares that Abu is the owner and Raju and Ah Chong can enjoy 95% of what Abu is enjoying.
    10 . Raju and Ah Chong, can not question the 5% ‘special-right’ enjoyed by Abu, to which Raju and Ah Chong agreed, their family also agreed.
    11. All live happily for 50 years.
    12. Now, Abu’s, Raju’s and Ah Chong’s grand children are questioning the 5%.
    13. Raju and Ah Chong also thinking and claiming that Abu is no more respecting Raju and Ah Chong’s 95%.
    14. They also claim slowly (but surely) the 95% is being reduced, and it’s now less then 50%.
    15. Abu is saying that 5% (special right) is not enough. Raju and Ah Chong is not entitled for any percentage, if they do like, go back to their own country.
    16. Raju and Ah Chong is claiming this land is their own country.
    17. Abu saying this land is not your country, you are still immigrant.
    My conclusion;
    1. Raju and Ah Chong and Abu grand children will NEVER understand what their grand father agreed. Because school never though this.
    2. Raju and Ah Chong should not question Abu’s special-right of 5%
    3. Abu must make sure Raju and Ah Chong does not feel their 95% is been reduced.
    ‘Sorry for the long story”

  423. Fairness Sep 11,2008 10:08 AM

    Let’s not make a mountain out of a molehole. What Racial tension?. All this is political talk! All we now see is erotion of confidence between component parties within the ruling government.
    As an ex-serviceman, I feel the caution by the Chief of Armed Forces is his personal opinion. Internal security is the jurisdiction of the Police. The Armed Forces chief should focus on issues of external threats and joint operations to support the Police. He should tell us how the Armed Forces can play a proactive role in combating illegal immigration, piracy in our waters, cyber war, and even how to conduct psychological operations in nation building. We have the best success story in overcoming insurgency. Why can’t we use the idealogy (separate the fish from the water) to serve “nation building and racial intergration”.
    We send our troops for overseas “peace keeping” mission. Why not do something frutful at home, in a less intimidating fashion called “JIWA MURNI”. How about roping them into PEMUDAH to gather feedback on execution of government programs, especially in the rural areas.
    How about sending our political elders for boot camp training on “Character Building”, just like we do for our NS trainees. No need to go to Taiwan.
    Just some of the ideas that the Armed Forces can play, instead of airing unnecessary hot air !

    Salam TUN yang d kasehi,
    SYABAS !! Tun akan kembali menyertai UMNO, maka hilang lah kerinduan kami terhada TUN selama tiada di dalam UMNO tempoh hari.
    Saya setuju dengan ‘nadim’ yang menyarankan pihak media menyiarkan ruang khas tulisan2 TUN dalam akhbar2 mereka. At least orang yg tiada dapat access dari internet at least mereka boleh baca melalui akhbar dan penjualan akhbar2 mereka pasti laris. Ya lah benda2 mcm cerita yg tak ade faedah boleh disiarkan seperti kes rogol, zina, cerita2 artis bercerai berai yang mengaibkan apa perlu diheboh2 kan. Jadi terimalah saranan ini agar pihak media lebih maju dan peka kpd keadaan sekeling yg lebih mencabar lagi.
    Selamat kembali TUN, we always love U….

    The social contract is a strong underpinning of Malaysian society and essential for the stability of the country. Of course as we can see from the cases of Thailand and Indonesia, even with clear racial majorities and social integration practiced, this does not necessarily mean that stability is ensured. Malaysia actually faces even stronger challenges than other countries due to the racial composition of the social framework and it is easy to imagine that a single spark can destroy overnight what took 50 years to build.
    Any yet it is truly sad that something which took 50 years to build is still so fragile. There has to be something fundamentally flawed which needs to be corrected if the social contract still needs so much effort to be balanced.
    There are countries in which racial minorities are not discontented and where there are significant mixes of races without such extreme balancing needed. In all of those cases the primary determinant of stability is the economy. If the people are well off and the country is strong, stability is a given. I will not debate on whether the non chinese in Singapore are oppressed, but i think a true test is that will they move to Malaysia if offered? I seriously doubt so as the singaporean non chinese i know are quite happy where they are. Of course there are the usual grouses against the government, but even the chinese have their complaints there. But when their currency is strong and economy is stable, employment is available, crime rates are low, why should they even think of moving to another country? It is argues that Singapore is small and easily governed and yet economically there is always emphasis on economies of scale. Whatever they do or implement a larger country should be able to do on a cheaper per unit basis.
    Unfortunately when we begin to compare our selves to others, our MPs will just comment, if you don’t like Malaysia then leave. Well if that is the thinking improvement will never arrive and the great Vision 2020 is becoming more and more like a pipe dream.
    Anyway, Tun it is great to hear that you are rejoining UMNO, it wuld be great to see you work from within to restore UMNO and hence BN. I’m sure the people still love BN and would support it if there was good leadership in place once again.
    Good luck in your struggle but don’t give up blogging.

  428. petunjuk Sep 11,2008 10:04 AM

    Dear Tun,
    Malaysians of various ethnic backgrounds have learned to tolerate the rights of every citizen through information and civilized discussion from the government you lead. Sensitive issues raised that could be detrimental to the harmony of the various races in Malaysia were counteract with intellect. It is sad to know that such actions that could tone down racial intolerance do not prevail anymore.
    Having said that, history cannot be re-written and we cannot override our thoughts and emotions with “what should have been done” over “what have been done”. The core issue is that the social contract that previous leaders of the three major ethnic group has agreed upon should be upheld and respected by present and future generations. I am sure the previous leaders who had establish the social contract had insight and foresight that such social contract was a good move towards racial tolerance and harmony in our beloved country. This has to be clearly stated by the present government so that we can end sensitive issues which revolves around the social contract from being aroused. In this blessed month of Ramadhan, may we seek refuge in ALLAH against all evil doings as stated in the following verse of the Quran: “And if (at any time) an incitement to discord is made to thee by the Evil One, seek refuge in Allah. He is the One Who hears and knows all things”.(Surah Fussilat, verse 36).

    The selfishness & stupidity of human always leads to disaster. I’ve read toady that Ahmad Ismail has been suspended for 3 years, but he still thinks that he is doing the right thing..by building houses along the coast of ‘Tsunami May Struck Area’. Only the one who wanted to be call ‘Hero’ would do such childish things. He totally forgot he is againts ‘Mother Nature’. The leader that lesds his commarades & put them at risk is not a ‘Hero..but a ‘Killer’. He should build his so call ‘houses’ far from the danger zone, so he & his commarades would have time to prepare for a coming ‘Tsunami’. His speech & in-appropriate behaviour has challenge our GOV the quality of our leader. We do not need someone that could transform younger generation to have ‘Segregation & Discrimination’ NESTED in their brains. We need a ‘Hero’ that leads to HARMONY, not putting ourlives at risk.

  431. nmjnh Sep 11,2008 9:57 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Welcome back to UMNO for second time eventhough I still doubt your main reason as it already contradicted with your previous pledge 4 months ago that you would only return if Pak Lah resigned.
    Anyway, the social contract issue is being debated now as malay many professionals or ‘minority’ as you said is willing to share power as long as the leaders are capable by neglecting the race, and religion.
    I believe this is the consequences that Our Vision 2020 is all about. We need capable leaders to lead our country without corruption, to be a good example to the people.
    While BN still believe in racial concept, divide and rule strategy to achieve the vision, many young professionals have different way of approach. Its not that they dont really like the BN style, its just too much corruption and selective management being practised by the goverment have make them unsatisfied.
    I believe Malaysia need this well educated professionals eventhough they are minority. After all we dont need corruptors, less educated, short sighted, races chauvinists, etc to be our leaders. Just look at our neighbor Singapore, how fast their country progress politically to be one of the best place to stay in the world. They used to be part of Malaysia, can we learn something, for goodsake of everyone?

    1. Kempemimpinan UMNO buat keputusan untuk gantung keahlian Ahmad Ismail kerana kes “kenyataan bersifat hasutan” berkait “hubungan bangsa”. Itu hak UMNO.
    2. Ahmad Ismail bercakap dihadapan 200 orang sewaktu kempen pilihanraya, di satu tempat, dalam kawasan Permatang Pauh. Bermacam faktor terlibat dalam keadaan sedemikian.
    3. Sebuah akbar berbahasa Cina, Sin Chew Jit Poh, telah melapor isi ceramah Ahmad tersebut, dan pembacanya jauh lebih besar daripada 200 orang. Antara Ahmad Ismail dan akhbar Sin Chew Jit Poh, siapa yang lebih berpengaruh untuk mampu mewujudkan kekacauan? Ahmad Ismail cuma pemimpin bahagian yang tidak pun dikenali pada peringkat nasional. Koh Tsu Koon adalah pemimpin nasional parti terkenal Gerakan, dan bekas Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang, terkenal bukan sahaja di Malaysia. Antara Ahmad dan Koh Tsu Koon, siapa yang lebih berpotensi untuk melancarkan kekacauan?
    4. Kenapa pengarang Sin Chew Jit Poh meneruskan penerbitan isi kandungan berita yang berpotensi menjadi sensasi itu? Kenapa pengarang tersebut tidak terus melapurkan kepada polis, atau mengarahkan pemberitanya supaya terus melapurkan kepada polis jika mereka berpendapat ada kes “hasutan”? Antara Ahmad Ismail dan pengarang Sin Chew Jit Poh, siapa yang lebih “berniat jahat”, jika itulah sebab Ahmad Ismail digantung? Antara Ahmad dan Sin Chew Jit Poh, siapa yang lebih banyak dapat untung, sama ada dari segi kewangan, populariti atau pengaruh, jika keluarkan atau sebarkan kenyataan sedemikian?
    5. Bila semua perkara seperti ini berlaku, siapa yang rugi? Siapa yang untung?
    6. Saya amat benci kepada percakapan dan tindakan yang bersifat perkauman. Tetapi keadilan adalah hak sejagat. Keadilan tidak akan tertegak bila ‘kemenangan’ berpihak kepada ‘kita’. Kemenangan bukan bererti keadilan. Keadilan adalah keadilan.

    YB Tun, semoga mendapat keberkatan di bulan posa ini.
    1. Benar seperti yang Tun tulis perasaan perkauman semakin meningkat dan terus meningkat di negara kita sekarang. Saya rakyat biasa di bahagian paling bawah sangat merasainya.
    2. Puncanya mungkin :
    i. Kelemahan kepimpinan tertinggi yang sedia ada. Mereka takut bertindak di peringkat awal dulu kerana takut tidak popular. Akibatnya sekarang mereka menjadi semakin tidak popular.
    ii. Bapa Kehancuran Melayu iaitu DS Anuar Ibrahim yang masih petah berkata-kata dan pandai berpura-pura.
    iii. Golongan professional tertentu yang suka keadaan ini berlaku supaya mereka dapat menangguk di air keruh agar agenda mereka dapat dilaksanakan
    iv. Hasutan dari luar negara yang memang mahu kita rakyat Malaysia sentiasa curiga-mencurigai dan bergaduh agar Malaysia tidak dapat menjadi negara maju, sentiasa bermasalah, lemah dari segi politik, ekonomi dan ketentaraan
    3. Jadi… kepimpinpinan yang ada mesti bertindak agresif, drastik dan efisien untuk membenteras keadaan yang semakin parah ini. Lebih baik memotong buluh-buluh yang dah keras itu daripada buluh-buluh tersebut menghempap rumah kita, sebelum terlambat…
    Sejahtera Malaysia.

    Good morning Tun,
    I genuinely sense that you’re concerned. So am I. I read somewhere that great problem solvers work on dilemmas rather than problems. That’s where you’re coming from. A dialectical tension exist between liberialism/meritocracy and focus on the status quo. What you are postulating – striking a balance is the answer. It does not necessarily have to be about invoking new policies. It could be about reframing our thoughts, paradigms – like in this case going back to what our founding fathers created in creating balance.
    How I wished you could be ushered in into active politics to make a difference.
    God bless you and your loved ones.

    Over the years, through experience and exposure have made Malaysians, irrespective of racial origins and religious beliefs very much matured.
    The oppurtunists can continue on instigating, and no amount of instigations will make Malaysians fight racially.
    Malaysians have already realised their vital voting right and we have sat our mind undividedly on the kind of goverment in power that we want.

  440. Neil Sep 11,2008 9:37 AM

    Tun,This racial issue has been going on for far too long.For 22 long years you have been fanning the fire of Racism and till now it haven’t stop.What do you want really?Do you want to see all the races fighting against one another so you can laugh until you drop dead?Please its time you put a stop to all this nonsense and let us get on with what we want to do with our life.You are old already and whatever you say now will not see light at the end of the day.You will leave nothing behind but only hatred.We the younger generation will chart a new course for a new malaysia.You have play your part and it’s time now for us to play our part.Is that FAIR.Like what you say ‘even if the malays are stupid, they must be given a chance’.’Even if they failed a number of times, they must be helped and given hangouts’.’Even if they are slow other races have to wait’.All this EVENS is what makes the malays been called Ketuanan Melayu.Is that so? I don’t see any!This so call Ketuanan Melayu is just a phrase use to please the malays into thinking that the gov’t do really play a part in helping some malays to be rich and successful.But infact if not millions,thousands have failed.So leave us alone.You rest while we work.

    Dear TDM
    I think Pak Lah would have done better had you not put so much pressure on him. I wonder how the removal of Pak Lah is going to ease the so called problems in Malaysia. What kind of changes can DPM Najib can bring about? If it was possible, Najib would have made the changes, in the first. Why wait for Pak Lah to go?
    Racial sentiment is not new to Malaysians. It has been there all the time. It was just that non-Malays dare not raise their voice under your autocratic rule. Yet Malays were quite free to voice. Now, I think all races are free to voice. I think nobody can suppress that artificially. That is the trend. People would attain maturity, sooner or later, to discuss sensitive topics, and that should be encouraged.

    Assalammualaikum Tun,
    Ada sesetengah budak Melayu tak sedar dek untung, mereka ini telah mendapat habuan dari DEB dan hak hak istimewa orang Melayu. Budak2 Melayu lulusan tinggi ini memandu kereta mewah dan berumah besar di Kuala Lumpur. Ada pula yang telah berkahwin dengan bangsa Cina, India dan orang Inggeris. Bagi mereka kejayaan dan kekayaan yang di perolehi adalah drpd usaha mereka sendiri. Mereka telah melupakan DEB Kerajaan BN dan bangsa Melayu. Mereka lupa melihat warna kulit mereka yang sawa matang dan hidung yang kembang. Suruhlah mereka berbogel di depan cermin dan lihat apa warna bontot mereka!
    Budak2 Melayu ini lah yang menaja gerakan hak samarata dengan bangsa2 lain. Mereka telah dipengaruhi dengan cara hidup,dipengaruhi oleh pasangan hidup serta dipengaruhi oleh anak2 mereka.
    Pada pandangan saya memang tepat masanya Tun menulis pasal ini. Jumlah mereka ini mesti dibendung atau dikecilkan dengan mengenal pasti dan mendekati mereka. Mereka ini kalau tidak kena gaya dalam memberi teguran akan mengkritik, mengherdik dan menghalau orang yang memberikan teguran tersebut.
    Kaedah istimewa perlu di cari dalam menyedarkan golongan Melayu elit ini. Mereka ini sudah terlalu kaya dan terlalu pandai. Dibawah mereka pula mereka menggaji ramai kakitangan profesional lain yang telah berkongsi idea dengan mereka.
    Mmg tersangat susah menangani golongan ini. Tahniah Tun kerana nampak masalah yang telah menjadi barah kepada orang orang Melayu.
    Kalau diharapkan pemimpin Melayu yang seorang lagi untuk memikirkan masalah ini rasa2nya tak ada harapan la.

    YAB Ayahanda Tun,
    You said, “I did not like putting this on my blog. But I have no access to the Government.”. You kept mentioning “They”. Who is this “They”. As I see it, all this is UMNO’s views. The last election results told a different story.
    Well, I heard you are joining UMNO, hence you cannot say this anymore. Yes, if only you had not left UMNO.
    It is very disturbing and disappointing to see you being labled a “Racist” resulting from your views on matters such as Social Contract, Affirmative Action and even the “recalcitrant” Ahmad Ismail’s racist remarks.
    What’s become of you, YAB Tun?. Why do you indulge in this line of thinking. Do you realise how you are contributing and incensing racism through your postings and outburst.
    I was sad to read Mohon Maaf and after Mohon Maaf2, I could not help see through that you are doing this because of your disgust with UMNO leadership, specifically Abdullah Badawi for not listening or doing the way you wanted.
    I am not sure what difference you are going to make to the current political upheaval gripping the country. Buut please go ahead and do whatever is necessary but don’t drag down whatever reformations and transformations that is working towards breaking down all forms of discrimination of “racisim”. But, lets move forward and not hide behind old curtains by frightening people how fragile our democracy and political maturity is.
    I welcome the minority Malays who believe in their own self esteem, pride and merits of not having to live on the crutches. Yes, the larger majority won’t agree because you and UMNO continue to support and hide under the Social Contract thing.
    Now that you are joining, are you going in to create more chaos or help them come to the fold!. Why don’t Tun write something constructive on measures and actions that can stabilise and promote the long term development racial harmony and realising the Malaysian Malaysia. To do so, you have to refrain from making remarks that smacks of racism and favouritism.
    In your Affirmative Action article, you said, eventually (at some point in time) it has to go. Well, that’s what the Non Malays have been asking since the end of NEP. But when ?? Do we need a cristal ball?. How about 2015, leaving 5 years to recover in time vision 2020.
    Best wishes and prayers.

    I question if some of the readers who comment on this blog actually understand or even read what’s written!
    It appears some just add a mundane “we support you, Tun!” and go on to bash the government and ask for PakLahs head regardless of whats in the article/entry!
    On the other side, some take the oppurtunity to bash Tun and call him racist, out of date, etc without caring whats written at all! Please people, if you dont understand the language or meaning, refrain from commenting on this particular article. Sheesh!
    From my understanding, Tun finds the minority of young Malay professionals “refreshing” so this means he is not against a level playing feild for all races! He is concerned about the opposite where the majority of young Malays want to abolish the social contract by making Malaysia fully “Malay” via arms or international interference.
    Those of you who are so against the Social Contract need to vent your frustation at the right issue… faulty implementation, corrupt and oppurtunistic bumis, etc. The Social Contract itself is not a vessel of evil/racism if properly implemented for the correct individuals. There are still farmers and fishermen out there who make 700RM a month to support 5 kids, who need this contract to send their kids to Universities.
    Eventually the day will come when this Social Contract will not be necessary and I pray it comes quick. The patience of the non-bumis is not infinite and like it or not, we need to learn to play on a level playing field, the way it should be.

  447. hardy Sep 11,2008 9:30 AM

    Abdullah had done a wonderful job regardless of what people said abt him. He could not undo much of the damage created the last 22 years.

  448. T Sep 11,2008 9:30 AM

    /// 8. In short they seem to reject the social contract altogether and to go back to the situation before the leaders of the communities made their bargain. ///
    Dear Tun, bottomline is – you cannot have the cake and eat it too. Or more pertinently, after having eaten the cake, you still want another cake.
    If we were to go back to pre-Independence day, then Malaya should be governed by the British. Given its track record of superior administration, and seeing how Hong Kong had prospered under the British when all HK had were some barren islands, I am sure Malaya would by now be more prosperous than Hong Kong if it remained a British colony.
    As to the social contract, someone had already pointed out – it should apply only to the first generation of Malaysians who were party to that contract. The minute the contract was struck, the Chinese and Indians had become Malaysian citizens. Ergo, their children and offspring born in Malaysia will automatically be Malaysian citizens.
    As an analogy, the social contract was a property sale, and not a property lease. There is consideration when I sell you the property, and you pay me cash. I cannot expect you to pay me the sale price every year, every ten year, or every election year. It is not rentals that have to be paid every month.
    Foreigners working in Malaysia, (or if you want to stretch it, include Permanent Residents), are here temporary and are renting the place. But Citizens, by definition, are here for perpetuity – they bought the freehold property. They have already paid the huge property price upfront.

  449. Benson Lee Sep 11,2008 9:23 AM

    (1) You are wrong TUN
    (2) Many of my malays collegues are not support/agree the NEP and
    the so called social contract at all.
    (3) They are actually the products of the politicians, especially
    the malays politicians to gain benefits from the projects,
    (4) Mostly they believe that all malaysians should be treated
    equally, compete with their own abilites. Why the Malays been
    labelled as weak and need to be helped while in fact they are
    protected and never been explored of their talents?
    (5) Stop the politicians’ political languages. They are the people
    who created the tensions and problems.

  450. neng69 Sep 11,2008 9:23 AM

    Tun,
    Saya amat bersetuju dgn pendapat chua88 diatas. Semua Racial Tension ini telah di gembar gembur kan oleh ahli politik itu sendiri, baik dari parti kerjaan ataupun pembangkang.Pastinya mereka ini menpunyai agenda mereka tersendiri. Kami majoriti rakyat jelata masih seperti dahulu. Bekerja, tinggal & bergaul bersama sama tanpa merasakan apa apa syak wasangka.
    Kami hanya ketawa apabila berbicara dan melihat gelagat ahli ahli politik yang kurang matang seperti anak nak kami di tadika samada di dewan rakyat ataupun di dada akhbar.Mereka cuba menjadi hero kaum mereka dengan slogan untuk memperjuangkan nasib kaum masing masing. Kami hanya tersenyum sinis melihat badut badut ini dan bertambah meluat apabila membuat perbandingan diantara slogan mereka dengan harta harta mereka yang mereka ada.
    Ahli ahli politik ini jugalah yang menbuatkan kami rakyat jelata tidak senang duduk. Ada pula yang gila kuasa dan bercita cita mahu menubuhkan kerajaan baru tanpa memikirkan bahawa mereka itu telah dipilih oleh rakyat setempat untuk membantu mereka. Tanggungjawab asas mereka masih lagi tidak di tunaikan seperti tetapi sibuk pula untuk memerintah negara.
    Pada hemat saya dan rakan rakan yang bukan melayu, ahli ahli politik yang seperti in patut ditembak dan dihantarkan ke neraka sahaja….
    Tolonglah, kami hanya ingin hidup aman damai bersama rakyat malaysia yang lain di negara kami yang tercinta ini.

  451. hajimat Sep 11,2008 9:22 AM

    Salam Sejahtera Tun,
    Welcome back to UMNO. We (desperately) need you right now.
    I will rejoin UMNO as soon as your application is approved by the HQ.
    THANK YOU SIR.

  452. chrisltc Sep 11,2008 9:21 AM

    Good day to you Tun and selamat berpuasa:
    People………people, or the citizen of Malaysia. there are major power struggle among political parties (within UMNO, MCA MIC and Gerakan) there is also the BN vs PR.
    Please, all these happenings after 8th Maech are all games played by the politician. Whoever wins, we common people still have to work to earn a living. Not that you choose a side and you no need to work after they won and you live happily ever after. Stop being so naive and join in the unhealthy political game blindly.
    When dust settle. lives go on…………………..
    Selamat berpusa and good day to all.

  453. Sheeba of Tanah Melayu Sep 11,2008 9:20 AM

    Maybe our country would be better off if we are still under British. No social contract issue, the Malays remain as tuan of the land, and the practice of good governance. Less to fight about because everybody cukup makan. Tunku has made mistake about giving the citizenship, anyway, al-Fatihah for him in this blessed Ramadan

  454. boom Sep 11,2008 9:16 AM

    tuan,kamu merupakan seorang tu yang berjaya dan cerdik..betulni..
    sejak tuan tidak menjadi perdana menteri malaysia, adakan tuan mendapati sosial malaysia telah menjadi buruk?? rasa sedih juga apabila memngetahui sesetengah orang tidak menghormati tuan..tuan,saya akan menyokong tuan selama lamanya..
    saya percaya cuma ada tuan yang dapat menyelamatkan kami semua ni sekarang…jangan biar non malay dibenci oleh malay..ni lah yang hurt kami semua ni..
    kalau non-malay adalah pendatang,bagaimana dengan orang asli di malaysia ??adakan mereka juga pendatang??
    kerajaan telah menjalankan progran latihan khidmat negara,mengapakan kami semua ni tidak dapat bersatu padu?? sejarah nak berulang balik ke?? harap tidak…tuan,sila selamatkan malaysia..

  455. Ken USJ Sep 11,2008 9:14 AM

    Salam Bahagia Tun,
    I really hope that recent “racist remarks” will come to an end, we need to move forward, we need to “cari makan”, for ourselves and our families.
    My simple wish here is good health for Tun, and let’s hope that Malaysia will be in peace for what it used to be.

  456. Sam2008 Sep 11,2008 9:12 AM

    1. Before we complaint to our PM now,please think twist why all these problems happened now? Is that all happen because of just 5 years time mangement under PM Abdullah??
    2. The problems were happen since many years ago, but the condition of economy still good at last time not like now, so our people start reliase that the proper management system and policy of government is a must to maintence the good future of our country.
    3. If the thinking of Malaysian still not change, Malaysia will not achieve the Vision 2020. Because we still use too much time on racist issues, not concentrate in the country economy.
    4. We want the help to really poor people no matter they are Malay, Chinese, India, Kadazan, Iban or other races. Not the politician friends, relatives, partner and so on…
    5. Too much of money wasted in the gaint project because not open tender to all contractor…the contract awarded to the selective people that so call partnership..
    6. Privatisation is a good practice in develop country to reduce cost and provide good services and management in Develop Country. But in Malaysia, the privatisation will increase the cost but no better services and managment provided. When a privatisation company loss money… Government just know how to help them…the cost will all go to the RAKYAT…
    IS THAT A GOOD SYSTEMS AND POLICY? ASK YOURSELF…
    WE ARE MALAYSIAN, WE LIKE MALAYSIA……

  457. jeff hamaz Sep 11,2008 9:11 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun & bloggers
    Bila berbicara tentang soal kontrak sosial & perpaduan kaum, saya selalu teringat kata-kata aruah ayah saya semasa kecil dahulu. Katanya dan dia selalu mengulangi kata-kata itu, di Malaysia ini hanya ada 2 bangsa sahaja, iaitu bangsa kaya & bangsa tidak kaya. Bangsa kaya yg menganggotai UMNO, MCA, Gerakan, MIC dll saling tolong menolong sesama mereka. Bagi orang-orang politik, kata aruah ayah, adalah perkara biasa ‘aku tolong kau dapat kontrak, kau hulur duit kpd aku’. Atau ‘aku rekomen anugerah bintang kepada kau, kau beri angpau kepada aku’. Atau ‘aku tolong ini, kau bantu itu’, dan seterusnya lagi dan lagi saling tolong menolong demi wang dan kuasa. Bagi orang-orang kampung seperti kami, ketika itu kami juga tolong menolong walaupun nama kami ialah Ali, Ah Chong atau Muniandy. Saya tinggal di kampung Melayu di Seberang Perai yg berjiran dengan perkampungan Cina dan sedikit kelompok komuniti India. Setiap hari apabila ke sekolah saya & rakan-rakan melalui perkampungan Cina yg ada ladang ternakan babi. Kadang-kadang jiran Cina kami meminta izin dari ayah untuk mengambil tanaman untuk makanan babi ternakan mereka dan bapa selalu berkata kepada jiran Cina kami dia tidak perlu minta izin, ambil sahajalah tanaman itu kerana ia adalah anugerah Tuhan. Jiran Cina kami pula selalu memberi lebihan hasil sayuran yang dijualnya pada hari itu seperti timun, kacang dan keledek kepad kami dengan percuma sahaja diiringi senyuman ikhlas. Jika ada majlis perkahwinan, kami tidak lupa menjemput jiran Cina kami dan pekedai-pekedai Cina pula sekali sekala mengadakan kenduri dengan menjemput pelanggan-pelanggan Melayu yg dimasak sendiri oleh tukang masak Melayu. Apabila Hari Raya Puasa kami tidak lupa memberi kueh raya kepada jiran Cina kami dan mereka juga berbuat demikian pada setiap Tahun Baru Cina. Hubungan kami sungguh baik, hingga apabila berlaku tragedi 13 Mei 1969 yg dicetuskan oleh pelampau-pelampau politik termasuk dari UMNO, MCA dan Gerakan keharmonian hidup kami tidak sedikitpun terjejas.
    Kami di kampung ketika itu tidak pernah ambil tahu apa itu kontrak sosisal di antara orang Melayu dan bukan-Melayu. Tanpa faham erti kontrak sosial pun kami boleh hidup aman damai.
    Kini hubungan baik seperti suasana di kampung dahulu itu hanya tinggal sebagai nostalgia semasa kecil. Saya menyaksikan kini anak-anak saya tidak lagi mempunyai hubungan baik dengan anak-anak bukan Melayu ketika di sekolah. Saya melihat pelajar-pelajar lebih suka berkumpul dan berkawan dalam kelompok kaumnya sahaja. Di taman perumahan kami walaupun ada jiran di belakang rumah terdiri dari kaum Cina dan India, tetapi tiada hubungan erat seperti di kampung dahulu. Masing-masing buat hal sendiri-sendiri sahaja.
    Saya percaya apa yg digelar kontrak sosial hanya secebis ilusi orang-orang politik UMNO yang mempermainkannya di kala mereka dalam kesempitan dan kesusahan. Bila menang besar dalam pilihanraya, yang dibincangkan hanya soal kontrak berbilion ringgit. Soal survival orang Melayu sama ada masih nak hidup atau nak mati tidak penting kerana ia di luar dari jangkauan dollar & cents. Tapi apabila parti tokoh-tokoh politik ini tewas dalam pilihanraya, isu kontrak sosial dipermainkan untuk menarik balik sokongan kaum Melayu yg hanya mereka ingat kewujudannya di dunia ini di kala parti mereka susah sahaja.
    Kepada pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO, MCA, Gerakan, MIC dll parti politik perkauman, hentikanlah sandiwara murahan anda. Jangan bersandiwara lagi atas nama perkauman sempit yang meloyakan tekak kami rakyat marhaen. Terimalah kenyataan bahawa semua kita adalah tetamu Allah di dunia ini. Terimalah juga kenyataan bahawa mengikut sejarah semua kaum Melayu, Cina dan India adalah pendatang di negara ini, cuma ada yang datang lebih 1,000 tahun, manakala yang lain ada pula yang baru datang antara 100 hingga 500 tahun yang lalu. Yang bukan pendatang hanyalah Orang Asli sahaja, malangnya kita gagal memberi layanan terbaik kepada mereka sebagai pribumi negara ini. Sejarah tetap sejarah, fakta tetap fakta. Jangan mempermainkan fakta sejarah kerana kepentingan politik perkauman sempit. Pandanglah ke hadapan bagi membina sebuah Malaysia baru yang bebas dari omongan politik perkauman sempit yang sangat busuk dan meloyakan itu. Marilah kita sama-sama selamatkan Malaysia dari api perkauman sempit yang boleh menghancurkan negara. Mereka orang-orang kaya boleh lari dan terbang ke Taiwan atau ke mana sahaja selepas mereka mencetuskan huru hara di negara ini, tapi kami rakyat marhaen yang tiada berwang hanya dapat menyaksikan segala malapetaka hasil perbuatan tokoh-tokoh politik yang busuk dan meloyakan itu.
    Salam Ramadhan kepada Tun & keluarga. SELAMATKAN MALAYSIA!!!

    Dearest Tun,
    Very true, Tun.
    By destroying the country thru racism, we would not able to enjoy the nasi lemaks, roti canais or even dim sums.
    A lot of rebuilding to be done. Thanks to Ahmad moron.
    Tun, when in UMNO, show Pak Lah the exit. He’s lost his way, as usual.

  461. khairi ali Sep 11,2008 9:09 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun, Tulisan saya yang disiarkan dalam Tematajdid dot com, adalah menyentuh soal yang Tun perkatakan. Dan sememangnya saya juga timbulkan persoalan : apakah perlu diadakan kontrak sosial yang baru.
    Cuma maksud saya lain sikit dari Tun. Saya bukan nak menegakkan apa jua yang telah dikontrakkan, tetapi menekankan setelah 50 tahun, sememangnya perlu dinilai semula (review). Malangnya, hal ini tidak di pick up oleh mana-mana pihak.
    Satu perkara lagi, apa yang saya bimbangkan bukanlah masalah konflik ras, tetapi wujudknya golongan Melayu yang memberontak pemerintahan yang diketuai oleh Melayu. Ini hanya mengundang golongan militan, khususnya, puak Islam. Ini pun telah saya nyatakan, dan apa yang berlaku oleh D.Ahmad Ismail adalah difahami, dan mungkin juga menjuruskan apa yang saya bimbangkan.
    Untuk menyelesaikan soal ini, apa yang saya cadangkan pula bukanlah pertukaran pemimpin, termasuk Pak Lah, seperti yang Tun sarankan. Apa yang perlu dlakukan ialah mengenalpasti isi kandungan kontrak sosial yang baru itu, dan sewajarnya setiap kaum itu mengemukakan cadanganya untuk dibahaskan secara tertutup dan bertanggungjawab.
    Saya orang Melayu, dan saya tetap bela orang Melayu. Tetapi, terpenting ialah merujuk kepada ajaran Islam dalam menyelesaikan sebarang pertelingkahan. Ini kerana Islam telah pun menyatakan apa yang akan berlaku sekiranya ajaran Islam diganggugugat, baik oleh umatnya, atau pun bukan umatnya.
    Maksud saya di sini tentang ajaran Islam itu ialah sunnahtullah, serta qada dan qadarnya. Ini kerana sunnahtullah ini meliputi semua manusia dan bangsa, termasuk agama. Sejarah menunjukkan bagaimana manusia, bangsa dan agama jatuh dan bangun. Cuma, yang ditafsir ialah dari sudut sejarah, bukan dari sudut amaran dan ajaran Islam, yakni dari Allah swt. yang menjadikan manusia dan bumi dan alam seluruhnya.
    Sehubungan dengan itu juga, nasib kaum Melayu, sama dengan nasib kaum-kaum lain… dan mereka mampu mengubahnya jika mereka mengubah diri mereka sendiri. Maksudnya, ikhlas dan jujur dalam menghormati kaum dan bangsa lain. Jangan bimbangkan tentang negara, ekonomi, krisis dan sebagainya, kerana titik mula dan asas ialah kita sendiri.
    Saya percaya, sesiapa yang membaca komen ini masih samar kerana terlalu terkongkong dengan situasi yang ada. Jangan panik kerana Islam boleh menyelamatkan bangsa Melayu, wilayahnya, ekonominya dan sebagainya.

  462. Bravo Echo Echo Romeo Sep 11,2008 9:08 AM

    Dr M.
    Malaysians are fighting among themselves for a tiny piece of leftover crumb. The country must utilize it’s best and brightest to fight for the bigger piece of the world pie. We are all not looking at the bigger picture and will always stay behind as a third world country.
    If we continue along this racial policies, bumis will always have this “tongkat” mentality like you said before and never learn to compete. If bumis are not exposed to stiff competition at home, they will be slaughtered in the world’s business arena. We need to be able to compete with the rest of the world to continue to achieve a better standard of living. Why not let the bumis compete at par with the non bumis and achieve a stronger competitive edge over a generation.
    Singapore is a good example of utilizing it’s best and brightest. Eventhough Singapore is not perfect, at least it has overtaken Malaysia in leaps and bounds since independence in terms of competetive edge. The Singapore Malays (Melayu Republic) are very different in their mental approach to competition compared to Malays in Malaysia and eventhough their fathers may have started off lagging behind the Chinese or Indians, the new generation of Malays in Singapore are now extremely competitive.
    We all have to sacrifice a bit to get better and it seems that Malaysia thinks that it can live in isolation and keep it’s outdated social contract and still expect to live in a land of plenty. The whole world is getting more competitive as the world’s population grows. Former Communist satellite countries are now hungry for more luxury materials and willing to work hard and less for it. Global economy has everything turned upside down with less competitive countries like Malaysia losing out to former uninvested countries like Vietnam, India and China.
    Malaysia’s population has more than doubled since 1975 and has many more mouths to feed. Instead of asking for quantity, Malaysia should focus on quality of it’s people, education and competitiveness.
    Alas, all is in vain if there are still people like Ahmad Ismail who thinks along racial lines. I’m not a strong supporter of all of SM Lee Kuan Yew’s policies but his call for a meritocracy Malaysian Malaysia in 1965 is one that really make sense. Welcome all ye best and brightest as I’ll make haste to utilize all your talents to make my country better.

  463. muhibah Sep 11,2008 9:07 AM

    Kalay kita tidak berhatihati Malaysia akan jadi seperti Lebanon. Kita akan ada green lines all over the country to limit movements of the various ethnic groups to safeguard us from each other. The differnt races will live separately. Food supply will be controlled.All services [hospitals, schools,shops and transports] will be adversely affected all over the country.
    The parliament and constitution will be suspended. There could still be some semblance of civil government but the military will mount up their control.
    Investors will immediately run out of the country. The ringgit will drop in value and become almost useless papers.
    We will of course continue to survive if we have not yet killed each other! But with misery and great difficulty. Our children will face gloomy and bleak future.
    And why all these have befallen our beloved nation???? WHY??? Just because of some stupid,arrogant, greedy, irresponsible politicians who have been for years peddling racial hatred among Malaysians. All UMNO, DAP, MCA,MIC, PAS, PBB, SUPP and all race based and religious based parties share the horrendous sin.
    Because of your actions and irresponsibility Malaysia, Allah forbid, can become a pariah country in the world one day.
    Let us be aware of the above scenario. Malays, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan,Melanaus,Bidayuh,Penan and all of us Malaysians…..let us take a step back….withdraw from this brink of disater. Push aside the politicians for a while…not everything in our life is political…..let us think for ourself, our children and their future…take a deep breath and taje another day to deal with those irresponsible politicians and throw them into oblivion. Our country and our nation does not just belong to politicians!!!!We do not have to listen to them all the time. Ignore them but during election do not elect them if they are stupid and irresponsible.
    All MALAYSIANS let us unite and protect our country and nation.

    Tun yang saya kagumi,
    Perjuangan yang belum selesai. Kami masih memerlukan Tun utk memberi semangat kepada perjuangan. DSAAB masih meraba-raba mencari penyelesaian yang tidak akan ditemui penghujungnya. Hasrat utk melepaskan jawatan kepada DSNTR pada pertengahan penggal pilihanraya tidak akan kesampaian. Rakyat dan Bangsa Melayu sudah tidak sanggup lagi menerima DSAAB sebagai pemimpin.
    Tun, kembalilah kepada UMNO dan teruskan perjuangan memelihara bangsa. Allah swt masih mahukan Tun memberi sumbangan kepada Bangsa.
    Sekian wasalam.

  465. hasanjvc Sep 11,2008 9:04 AM

    Salam TUN,
    saya ni 1st time baca blog TUN, Saya ni pekerja bawahan industri perkilangan. Baru belajar pasal IT ni.Situasi skrg ni amat susah lepas TUN bersara. Industri perkilangan makin terancam disebabkan dasar kerajaan yang berubah kepada pertanian. Bukan masa zaman TUN dulu,sektor perkilangan amat berdaya saing.Kebanjiran pekerja luar tanpa kawalan membuatkan kami rasa amat membenci kerajaan skrg.Kekalahan BN dalam GE 2008 adalah berpunca rasa tidak puas hati kami para pekerja2 semua. Ini menjadikan PAKATAN RAKYAT satu alternatif kami untuk terus HIDUP.
    walaubagaimana pun, kami amat bimbang tentang perkara ini. Samaada betul atau tidak pilihan kami.TUN bantulah kami tangani perkara ini. Sementara TUN masih mampu berjuang untuk bangsa sendiri, kami amat berharap.Bangsa lain dah mula menunjukkan “TARING”.
    Apa kesudahannya kami pun tidak dapat menjangka.Mampukah DSAI menjadi PM.DSAI is avery smart politician. We are very scared….
    akhir kata hidup perlu di teruskan di bumi merdeka ini dan selamat berjuang…
    wassalam

  466. lookenneth Sep 11,2008 9:02 AM

    Kunci has a point.
    Racist sentiments between Malays and non-Malays only seem to be rising because our leaders make it so. For us at the lower hierarchy of the society get along fine. If we look closely at pre-March 8 events the party that lost the most seem to have used very controversial phrases in the war of words between them. Instigation was, is and will still be the key, Tun. And the things that happened after that are only the by-products of these actions.
    Gone are the days of the ‘leader knows best’ mentality where stern action was the only way to curb racist comments made by anyone in the open.
    We’ve placed ourselves in this mess. It is up to us to get ourself out of it. As of now we’re neglecting the true progress that our country needs to pay attention on. We must concentrate on the important issues so that we don’t get left behind.
    I end my rant with the famous words of Martin Luther King Jr., “Can’t We All Just Get Along?”

  467. bawean69 Sep 11,2008 9:01 AM

    Salam Tun, it would be very noble and brave for Pak Lah if he decides to quit, now. After, registered with red report card, plus the hotshot issue, the change of leadership must commence, now.
    I guess, issues can be so many things but the most important topic is not about the RACE but LEADERSHIP.
    Tun, your move to re-join UMNO is immpeccable when the party in dire straits for a change. Not forgetting the whole BN. I guess you do not have intention to be PM, again, do you? but I would rather peace this time around if the selection/evaluation process for the next PM would be done effectively 🙂
    It is hoped that you would play a pivotal role in rejuvenate/relandscape/reengineer/remerging & reacquisition…and so many RE..RE..
    May God bless us all.

  468. justmy2SEN Sep 11,2008 9:00 AM

    I’VE LIVED IN A CHINESE-DOMINANT AREA, WAS SCHOOLED IN A CLASS WHERE OUT OF 43 STUDENTS WHERE ONLY 5 ARE MALAYS, ONE OF MY BEST FRIEND IS CHINESE (dah masuk islam dah pun), STILL IN TOUCH WITH MY CHINESE FRENS THRU FACEBOOK (60% are chinese), HAVE HAD RELATIONSHIP WITH BOTH CHINESE AND INDIANS

    Prior to these talk about SOCIAL CONTRACT etc, I’ve only seen chinese as sort of motivational factor for me to do better in my studies etc…BUT post-8MAC, chinese suddenly became so vocal about SOCIAL CONTRACT, to the extent of calling Malays names such as lazy, stupid (openly or impliedly as they were questioning how after so many years Malays still not successful) etc etc

    So I spend my time to frequent Chinese dominated forums and chinese blogs just to listen to their story and ONE THING I’M SURE IS MOST CHINESE ARE OPPORTUNISTIC LOT THAT DEFINE EVERYTHING ACCORDING TO THEIR CONVENIENCE AND BENEFITS WHO WILL DO ANYTHING (even putar belit facts and sejarah) AND WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THEY GET WHAT THEY WANT
    AND HERE’S WHY:-
    i) They talk about abolishing NEP in the name of race equality, but when confonted about discrimination towards malay in private sectors, they don’t even touch on that or give assurance that they are willing to give and take in the matter
    ii) They also do not bother to study history as to why nep was created and whether this is the right time or all race are at same playing field…they just want to talk about meritocracy/equality as they realised they will benefit the most if these are materialised (I will write on how NEP abolishment + meritocracy will be beneficial to middle class + rich chinese and leave Malays/Indians merempat)
    iii) They are the defender of malaysian malaysia concept…saying they’re as much a malaysian as malay next door…but when confronted with the possibility of closing down chinese schools…i see how they are giving sooo many excuses….when asked why they can’t speak good malay…can’t answer….it is here that i see chinese are not sincere in malaysian malaysia but more towards malaysia-must-make-chinese-richer-and-powerful..How can we have Malaysian Malaysia if our kids are segregated from the beginning?
    iv)Sometimes I asked myself, where does their loyalty lies (this is also an issues in Canada/Australia/US regarding Chinese Immigrants who became their citizens OR even an issue in Singapore where Malay are not allowed to have a high position in military)..Should anything unfortunate happen to Malaysia (touchwood), are they going to be the ones who will fight alongside Malays to protect or will they be busy transferring their assets and money offshores?…
    And I also hate the way they putar belit sejarah to get what they want….300K chinese killed for Tanah Melayu is the laugh of the day….to the extent of trying to prove Malays are from Yunnan and a pendatang as well (even if we are, we are here before you and if you open a company first, would you in your right mind give same rights to partner who comes after the company was discovered to have assets such as tin,gold etc – chinese are mostly businessman so I hope they can answer this truthfully in their heart) and conveniently missing the facts of Kesultanan Melayu…What I see is
    they don’t bother to tell the truth but pick and choose as they like..HOW CAN THERE BE TRUST IN THIS CASE?
    Please do not forget the history of Singapore-Malaysia…Lee Kwan Yew using Malaysian Malaysia concept which means equality for all races but when he have his own country, HE USE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO DISCRIMINATE MALAYS TO THE EXTENT OF TAK BOLEH PAKAI TUDUNG KE SEKOLAH (I’ve posted a lot of proof in my other comments), so SHOULD MALAYS JUST DISREGARD THIS AS WELL? If we don’t learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it
    For me it’s simple, a contract is valid when there is consideration between 2 parties. In this case, Malays gave citizenship in return to Hak Istimewa….If one of the cosideration is rebuked, it is natural tu assume that the contract is invalid/annulled, hence both of consideration will be invalid as well….BTW contract is NOT VALID if consideration is only from ONE SIDE only
    I THINK MALAYS ARE THE MOST TOLERANT PEOPLE….BUT IN THIS CASE WHERE IT IS OBVIOUS THAT CHINESE ARE JUST OUT THERE TO GAIN A MUCH AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT GIVING CONSIDERATIONS TO OTHER..IT’S A BIT TOO MUCH FOR US…ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
    BTW, as much as Ahmad deserves whatever he gets, I can’t help but wonder how come Uncle Lim + Karpal + Namawee + Bar Council gets away with it?…And they call themselves a Second Class citizen?…tak paham aku

    Salam Tun,
    My thoughts are exactly as per the majority of the young Malays. If one wants to review the social contract, then it should be reviewed wholesale, not just those involving Malay rights. It would put pay to that often-quoted-and-abused slogan, “Justice for all.”

  470. wn Sep 11,2008 8:58 AM

    Dear Sir,
    If because of all these probelms UMNO is facing, you decide to re-join UMNO while AB is still at the helm, then you are just as good as Mr Flip Flop II!

  471. bapakKucing Sep 11,2008 8:54 AM

    Tun,
    Saya sebagai seorang Melayu tidak ada seorang pun kawan dari kaum bukan Melayu selama saya menetap di Malaysia. Saya pergi ke sekolah kebangsaan, yang hanya ada dua pelajar India dalam kelas saya. Kemudian saya belajar di sekolah asrama penuh, dalam satu sekolah hanya ada seorang pelajar Punjabi dan seorang pelajar Cina. Hanya apabila saya menyambung pelajaran ke luar negeri saya mempunyai kawan orang Malaysia yang bukan Melayu.
    Saya bersetuju dengan pandangan bahawa kita perlu ada hanya satu sistem persekolahan yang sekular. Pelajaran agama boleh ditumpukan di sekolah agama. Untuk kaum Cina dan India yang mahu anak-anak mereka tahu membaca dan menulis dalam dialek masing-masing, bolehlah diadakan sekolah khas. Jika orang Melayu boleh menghantar anak ke masjid atau sekolah agama di untuk belajar Al-Quran, apa salahnya kaum lain mengadakan pendidikan khas diluar sistem sekolah, jika masih mahu mengekalkan budaya mereka.
    Namun perlaksanaan reformasi pendidikan seperti ini bukan mudah. Perlu dibuat secara berperingkat. Sudah pasti akan mendapat tentangan dari NGO yang begitu lantang mempertahankan sistem pendidikan mengikut kaum. Pelik, ada antara mereka yang bukan Melayu, mahukan ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ tetapi pada masa yang sama ada di antara mereka yang begitu lantang memperjuangkan sekolah jenis kebangsaan. Jikalau pun mendapat persetujuan semua kaum pun, banyak faktor lain yang perlu difikirkan diantaranya seperti latihan semula guru-guru dan penilaian semula silibus. Bagaimana pula dengan kemasukan pelajar ke universiti? Apa yang akan jadi dengan UiTM? Jikalau tidak ada sekolah jenis kebangsaan, tentu ada pihak yang akan mempersoalkan polisi UiTM? Banyak perkara yang perlu difikirkan.
    Tun, perbezaan ekonomi di antara kaum semakin berkurangan, namun perbezaan budaya dan cara pemikiran antara kaum semakin lama semakin teruk. Perlukah kita teruskan sistem pendidikan yang ada sekarang atau perlukah kita mengubahnya? Atau adakah pada pendapat Tun sistem persekolahan bukanlah satu isu yang mempecah-belahkan perpaduan? Harap Tun boleh komen.
    Sebagai seorang anak Melayu, rakyat Malaysia, saya juga faham bahawa bagi kawan-kawan saya kaum India dan Cina juga menganggap Malaysia sebagai tempat lahir tumpah darah mereka. Bagi mereka, “rumah” mereka tetap Malaysia, sama seperti saya.

  472. roz Sep 11,2008 8:54 AM

    Salam Tun,
    Saya rasa amat kecewa sekali dengan sikap orang kita terutamanya orang -orang UMNO yang mementingkan poket dan kedudukan mereka sahaja.
    Kami rakyat yang akan menjadi mangsa perbuatan mereka yang tidak memperdulikan negara dan bangsa.
    penduduk yang minoriti 7% diberi banyak kelonggaran sampikan boleh mebuat itu dan ini sesuka hati. Apa penduduk yang majoriti tak ada hak ke untuk mempertahankan apa yang sudah kami pertahankan selama ini?
    Saya amat bangga sekali dengan Tan Sri Muhyioddin Yassin yang sanggup bersuara demi kepentingan negara dan rakyat sekalian. Negara ini hak rakyat bukan hak UMNO, PAS atau PKR /DAP.
    Saya memang setuju pemerintahan sekarang tidak bersesuaina dengan kehendak semasa dan juga future. No strategic planning untuk memertabatkan bangsa dan negara apalagi agama kita, Islam.
    Percampuran politik dengan agama amat memalukan dan mengelirukan sekali. Suratkhabar semakin tidak dipercayai oleh rakyat. Orang asing sentiasa mentertawakan kita.
    KITA HANYA BERDIAM DIRI SEOLAH -OLAH TIADA APA YANG BERLAKU DAN AKAN BERLAKU. IS THIS AN EXAMPLE OF LEADERSHIP BY EXAMPLE?
    Tun,
    Saya amat bangga dengan keputusan Tun keluar UMNO kerana Tun sayangkan UMNO dan sekarang TUN sertai semula UMNO kerana Tun sayangkan negara.
    Saya sentiasa berdoa yang Tun akan kembali memimpin kami, negara Malaysia. Tun sahaja yang inshaallah boleh megembalikan keadaan ‘race’ issue ini seperti semasa pemerintahan Tun.Pemimpin kita tiada lyas pengetahuan seperti Tun yang arif dalam ekonomi dsb.
    ONLY YOU TUN, ONLY YOU…
    MALAYSI NEED YOU. MALAYSIAN SEE THRU YOUR EYES AND MIND AND ACTIONS.. ONLY YOU…..

    sesuatu perlu dilakukan. Lakukan segera TUN sebelum nasi menjadi bubur. Boleh Tun cadangkan sesuatu?

  474. Mohamed Ismail Sep 11,2008 8:49 AM

    Tun,
    Abdullah must step down! Now or UMNO will sink…
    Im afraid Malaysia too will sink because of racist issue…

  475. pokokhijau Sep 11,2008 8:49 AM

    Salam Tun,
    Just to my concern, seems like all of us are not satisfied with the current situation now, apatah lagi dgn PAK LAH yang sengal tu..so why no one realy taking an action? takke kalau semua tak setakat ckp je…apa kata semua bersatu ..do something sehinggakan PAK LAH terpaksa tunduk.

  476. shafiq ar radzif Sep 11,2008 8:46 AM

    Assalamualaikum…
    Pertamanya, saya ingin mengucapkan Selamat kembali YABhg Tun..
    Sesungguhnya, dengan kembalinya Tun ke pangkuan parti UMNO dpt mengukuhkan semula kredibiliti dan kepercayaan rakyat dan ahli kepada parti
    perjuangan orang Melayu perlulah melalui UMNO sendiri, pandangan saya tiadalah parti Melayu lain yang saya lihat berkemampuan untuk memimpin dan memperjuangkan orang Melayu dan Agama Islam itu sendiri khasnya dan negara amnya.
    tetapi malangnya, pemimpin di dalam parti itu sendiri yang bakal menghancurkan sesebuah parti. bukanlah saya tidak mempercayai mana-mana kepimpinan, malah setiap pemimpin yang dilantik melalui prinsip demokrasi adalah diberi sepenuh kepercayaan dan mandat, namun kadangkala, pemimpin yang dilantik hanya prihatin kepada akar umbi apabila tiba masa pilihanraya sahaja dam mempunyai terlalu banyak kepentingan peribadi.
    mengikuut pemerhatian saya, pemimpin di dalam UMNO terlalu selesa dengan keputusan Pilihanraya selepas pengunduran Tun dari kerajaan. ini membuatkan semua pemimpin UMNO baik di Bahagian mahupun Cawangan tidak bertindak untuk memenangi hati rakyat, mereka lebih suka mengambil tindakan tunggu dan lihat dan duduk di kerusi empuk mereka mengharapkan orang bawahan mengambil tindakan.
    Semasa pilihanraya Mac 2008, “style” ataupun strategi UMNO @ BN tidak berkesan sama sekali. Pandangan akar umbi tidak pernah diambil peduli, pemimpin tidak turun padang, kroni semakin berleluasa dan yang paling ketara adalah perletakan seseorang calon itu bukanlah dengan kehendak rakyat ataupun ahli parti itu sendiri tetapi atas arahan seseorang yang dianggap berpengaruh di dalam parti dan kerajaan.
    itulah yang membuatkan rakyat dan ahli parti sendiri hilang kepercayaan terhadap kepimpinan UMNO, bukanlah disebabkan oleh isu kenaikan minyak dan sebagainya.isu tersebut boleh menjadi penyumbang kepada kekalahan tetapi itu bukanlah alasan kerana telah terbukti kerajaan boleh mengendalikan masalah ekonomi dengan baik seperti krisis ekonomi pada tahun 1997.
    Pemimpin UMNO sensdiri semakin bongkak dan tidak tahu mengambil hati para belia. Perlu diketahiu bahawa belia pada tahun ini mendominasi populasi rakyat Malaysia amnya, dan golongan ini mempunyai pemikiran yang berubah-ubah tetapi mereka juga mempunyai semangt perjuangan yang kuat dan kental. mereka akan menyokong mana-mana parti apabila mereka mempercayainya. dilihat Pemuda UMNO itu sendiri gagal untuk mendampingi golongan belia, malahan belia di luar bandar lebih gemar berdamping dengan pemimpin belia dari pihak pembangkang kerana mereka lebih mudah menyuaraka pendapat mereka kepada golongan ini.
    dilihat gejala rasuah dan kroni juga begitu berleluasa sekarang ini. betulah ungkapan yang lebih kurang berbunyi “senangkanlah dahulu saudara-maramu”(mungin ungkapan yg diberi oleh saya tidak tepat, tetapi berbunyi lebih kurang ini)tetapi perlu diingat saudara mara itu mengikut interpretasi Islam adalah saudara seagama (pada pendapat saya) dan tidak dinafikan membantu saudara terdekat adalah wajib tetapi perlulah tidak mengabaikan rakyat dan bukan melalui amalan rasuah mahupun kroni.
    segenap bahagian dan cawangan UMNO dilihat mengamalkan rasuah yang tidak jelas(bukan dengan wang). Calon pemilihan perinkat cawangan dilihat seperti sudah ditetapkan dan telah dibeli oleh seseorang yang mempunyai banyak wang. biarpun akar umbi mengatakan tidak, tetapi mereka tetap berdegil.
    bagi mereka yang tidak tahan melihat fenomena ini, mungkit mengambil tindakan keluar parti, kerana tindakan di dalam parti itu sendiri telah disekat dan dihalang. tiada gunanya berjuang di dalam parti itu lagi. belia tidak lagi berminat untuk menyertai parti yang sebegini, dan ini melemahkan sesebuah parti itu.
    saya mengamati, penduduk dlm kawasan bandar khasnya golongan belia, malu untuk mengaku yang mereka adalah ahli UMNO, kerana situasi yang terjadi. Rata-rata mereka menikus dan kurang bersemangat berjuang untuk parti UMNO. mereka lebih gemar bergerak sendiri ataupun berganding dengan pihak pembangkang kerana hilang keyakina terhadap pemimpin di dalam UMNO mahupun dari peringkat cawangan ataupun pusat.oleh yang demikian Pemuda UMNO perlu mengambil tindakan dari sekarang dan berbuat sesuatu bagi mengembalikan keyakinan golongan belia untu kembali ke UMNO.
    akhir sekali YABhg Tun, dengan sekembalinya Tun di dalam UMNO semula, semoga dapat memperbaiki apa yang perlu (saya fikir banyak) dan dapat mengukuhkan parti. sesungguhnya pendirian parti UMNO sekarang ini bukanlah pendirian sebenar dari akar umbi.
    dan saya mohon maaf jika terdapat fakta yang kurang tepat, dan ini adalah bedasarkan pendapat saya sebagai golongan belia.
    UMNO tetap dihati…
    terima kasih
    Wassalam.

  477. neither one Sep 11,2008 8:44 AM

    Tun
    Two month ago keluar UMNO
    Won’t join back selagi Pak Lah is Presiden and PM
    now Muhyiddin said that Tun nak join semula
    because of BN and UMNO recent development
    hmmmm…..
    I think it is because of Anwar might came to power
    if he can get the KATAK leee
    are you terrified of this?

  478. nuriman Sep 11,2008 8:44 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    Your returning to UMNO is much anticipated. Thouh some quarters may have cold feet, your decision is viewed as opening clearing the path that has been overgrown by shrubs and bushes. Hoping that Tun could provide advices to those who needs them most. I need not elaborate because it might spark controversy and seen as a racist comment.
    Much is needed to make right what is wrong and. to put the train on its right track. Your vast past experience is an asset to assist in building the nation and to return the peoples trust in the ruling party. Aint that a sosial contract?
    Selamat menjalankan ibadat puasa.

  479. ponco Sep 11,2008 8:44 AM

    Salam Tun,
    Selamat kembali ke UMNO..
    Sampaikan salam Ponco kat Tan Sri M yang pujuk Tun..
    Harapan Ponco agar Tan Sri M dan Tun dah atur sesuatu untuk Malaysia.
    p/s : Nak tengok muka-muka lama politician kita aktif balik.. kut – kut boleh bawa perubahan.

  480. antikmalaya Sep 11,2008 8:44 AM

    Dear Tun,
    Is it possible to revoke the Social Contract and retract the citizenship given to the Non-Bumis? And we replace their citizenship with PR status. I foresee without a solution of such, this will be a continuing problems for the country and Malays. The dominance of Malay is crucial to ensure Islam as the only official religion of the country. As such, it is also very critical for the Royal Institution be protected as they are the guardian of Islam.

  483. hajiman ibrahim Sep 11,2008 8:39 AM

    Ybgh Tun.
    Gembira dan mengalu-alukan langkah Tun ke UMNO.Kebencian yang melampau terhadap DSAAB ,memberi implikasinya kepada UMNO.Harapan mengunong supaya Tun dapat memulihkan keadaan.Ramai rupanya yang berada di peringkat tertinggi UMNO tu yang bacul dan dunggu. Melayu bukan saya tewas dalam memacu hidup, waimah menentang pemimpin sorang tu pun gagal.
    Saya yakin ramai ahli UMNO sendiri tidak faham apa sabenarnya perjuangan atau matlamat nya. Yang ini harap Tun dapat perjelaskan. Siapa yang di bela ?
    Bila kuasa masih ditangan, namun saban masa keistimewaan (jika ada) melayu masih senantiasa dicabar, apa ertinya kuasa ? kalau ada kuasa namun masih takut, letak jawatan main jauh-jauh. Kalau beliau berani bertanding di Bukit Bintang atau Ipoh Timur, dan menang, DSAAB layaklah melayan permintaan kaum pendatang ni.
    Melayu yang menaikkan beliau, sebaliknya kaum pendatang pulak yang mendapat apa saja yang mereka tuntut ? Bukan bacul ke melayu macam tu ? Dari DSAAB hingga yang memilih beliau, dungu.
    Doakan muga Ybgh Tun dapat membetulkan dan menyedarkan melayu.
    Mendoakan supaya Allah senantiasa memberi kesejahteraan dan kemewahan kebahagian kepada Tun serta keluarga. Amin

    SALAM SEJAHTERA TUN
    SELAMAT KEMBALI KE ARENA POLITIK. PADA SAYA SOSIAL CONTRACT MEMANG TIDAK BOLEH DIPERTIKAIKAN.. (IM CHINESE). SEBAB IANYA MEMANG TELAH DIPERSETUJUI SETENGAH ABAD YANG LALU. NAMUN… INGIN SAYA BERTANYA…
    1. MENGAPA MASALAH PERKAUMAN TIDAK TIMBUL SECARA SERIUS KETIKA PEMERINTAHAN TUN. TERNYATA IANYA DISEBABKAN OLEH KERAJAAN MASA KINI.
    PENDAPAT… MENGAPA IANYA BERLAKU
    1. PARTI PEMBANGKANG DAP MENANG BANYAK.. DISEBABKAN OLEH PENYOKONG CINA. TETAPI SEBELUM INI (ERA PEMERINTAHAN TUN) PENYOKONG CINA MENYOKONG PARTI KOMPONEN BN IAITU MCA DAN GERAKAN.. LIM KIT SIANG BUKAN PERTAMA KALI MENYERTAI PILIHAN RAYA.. KENAPA IANYA MENANG BANYAK SEKARANG PADAHAL PADA ZAMAN PEMERINTAHAN TUN BELIAU HANYA MENANG SEDIKIT.
    …INI DISEBABKAN OLEH PARTI KOMPONEN.. MCA, GERAKAN, MIC DAN LAIN LAIN. PARTI KOMPONEN INI SEOLAH OLAH TIADA FUNGSI.. KEMUNGKINAN SUARA MEREKA TIDAK DIDENGAR OLEH PENGURUSI UMNO DAN SEOLAH- OLAH MEREKA TERLALU LEMAH.
    MASYARAKAT CINA DAN INDIA MEMERLUKAN PARTI YANG MAMPU MEMPERJUANGKAN NASIB MEREKA.. OLEH ITU PARTI PEMBANGKANG DAP DAN PKR DAN PAS MENANG BANYAK.. OLEH ITU UMNO KALAH DI PULAU PINANG.. DAN MENYEBABKAN TUDUH MENUDUH DIANTARA GERAKAN DAN UMNO….
    BETUL TAK TUN….
    SECARA KESIMPULANYA.. SEKIRANYA PEMERINTAH TERSEBUT MAMPU MEMERINTAH DENGAN BAIK DAN SAKSAMA… SAYA RASA PARTI PEMBANGKANG TAK AKAN MENANG DAN MASALAH PERKAUMAN YANG SERIUS TIDAK AKAN TIMBUL.
    SEKIAN

    Salam hormat Tun…
    Semoga Tun sentisa dilimpahi kebaikan di dunia dan akhirat..
    Sedikit pun tiada keyakinan di kalangan rakyat Dolah dapat menenangkan isu perkauman yang sedang hangat melanda negara kini. Dalam diam orang Melayu merasa sangat marah diatas pendirian pemimpin-pemimpin Cina dan India.
    Kelemahan pemimpin menyebabkan bangsa lain semakin biadab kepada orang Melayu.
    Yang menjadi kemusykilan saya sebagai rakyat biasa, tiadakah peranan yang akan dilakukan oleh ‘mesyuarat pembesar-pembesar’?
    Apakah pendirian ‘mesyuarat pembesar-pembesar’ terhadap perkara ini?
    Islam sudah pun di’Hadhari’kan.
    Orang Melayu sangat-sangat mengharapkan ‘mesyuarat pembesar-pembesar’ lebih berperanan.
    Diharap seorang pemimpin Melayu yang hebat atau hampi hebat seperti Tun dapat menggantikan pucuk pimpinan UMNO yang lembik seberapa cepat yang boleh.

  487. Jalak Lenteng Sep 11,2008 8:35 AM

    Salam Tun,
    Selamat Berpuasa saya ucapkan kepada Tun sekeluarga.
    Saya rasa sudah sampai masanya Tun kembali ke UMNO bagi membetulkan kembali keadaan. Perpaduan kaum amat penting di Malaysia bagi menjamin keharmonian semua.
    Semasa saya kecil, jiran-jiran saya ada orang India dan Cina. Kami bermain sama-sama, beraya bersama dan melakukan aktiviti waktu petang bersama-sama.
    Sekarang ini untuk melihat keadaan tersebut amat jarang sekali berlaku. Cuba Tun lihat kawasan perumahan di Putrajaya. Adalah terdapat kehidupan masyarakat majmuk di sana. Bagaimanakah disusun masyarakat di sana?
    Harap Tun dapat memberikan cadangan dan tindakan yang patut diambil bagi membetulkan kembali keadaan.
    Pak Lah mesti diturunkan walau macamana sekalipun.Bila tengok muka Pak Lah kat TV, saya menjadi menyampah dan meluat tengok muka dia.
    Hidup mesti sepakat, baru berkat.

  488. azlan Sep 11,2008 8:30 AM

    Itu benar dan saya setuju dengan pendapat Tun, saya rasa sekarang sudah mula rasa semakin tegang keadaan harmoni ,semua orang agak marah apabila sesetengah orang yang tidak bertanggungjawab membangkitkan isu sensitif,saya sebagai bangsa melayu begitu kecewa apabila jasa orang melayu tidak dik
