TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

RACIAL EQUALITY 112

1. “Foreign Affairs” is an American magazine. It is highly respected in America but it is not my favourite magazine.

2. Recently while flying I came across its latest edition. Its theme in the issue is on race and colour and on how they affect relations between people. I became interested because I felt sure the magazine would have nothing good to say about Malaysia.

3. There is an article on colour-blindness in America – meaning to say that all Americans of whatever colour are equal. Apparently the equality between people of different colours has not produced good results. What it really means is that everything, including opportunities must be based on merit.

4. Sure there is a black man sitting in the Presidential chair in the White House. There was once a black general as Chief of the armed forces of America and as Secretary of State. And there has been and there are presently blacks holding high office in Washington.

5. But the fact remains that most of the blacks are poor, are constantly involved in drugs and crimes. Despite the blacks making up just about 10% of the population, the percentage of blacks in prison is nearly 50%. The per capita income of the blacks are well below the national average.

6. Being equal with the whites has not benefitted the blacks much. No mention is made of the deliberate killings of blacks by the police, who then escape indictment.

7. As I expected the magazines included a study of Malaysia’s record on race relations. It admitted that despite the affirmative action under the New Economic Policy, Malaysia’s economy performed better than most other developing countries. The races seem to be living in relative harmony. There were no serious racial clashes.

8. The affirmative action under the NEP seem to have reduced the disparity in wealth distribution between the indigenous Malays and the Chinese. There is mention of the bumiputra’s owning only 2 per cent of the countries wealth before NEP and their wealth has now increased to 19%. The disparity is still there but is much reduced. (In America Joseph Stiglitz writes that the disparity between rich and poor has reached a dangerous level).

9. India and South Africa have also tried affirmative action. But their results are not as good as in Malaysia.

10. It would seem that Malaysia has done a better job of building a more equitable multiracial society than most multiracial countries including the US. The policy of equality of treatment i.e. meritocracy has not yielded tangible results.

11. The magazine Foreign Affairs seems to admit that Malaysia’s affirmative action has merit. Like the reversal of the opinion on Malaysia’s fixed exchange rate policy, there now seem to be a reversal of condemnation of our affirmative action, at least by the Foreign Affairs magazine. Other foreign media simply copy the biased reports made a long time ago without trying to investigate the realities regarding Malaysia’s management of race relations and development of its economy.

VERSI BAHASA MALAYSIA
1. “Foreign Affairs” adalah sebuah majalah Amerika. Ia sangat dihormati di Amerika tetapi ianya tidaklah majalah kegemaran saya.

2. Baru-baru ini semasa saya dalam penerbangan saya terjumpa edisi terbaru Majalah ini. Tema dalam isu ini adalah kaum dan warna dan bagaimana mereka mempengaruhi hubungan antara manusia. Saya tertarik kerana saya merasakan pasti Majalah ini tidak mempunyai sebarang yang baik untuk dikatakan mengenai Malaysia.

3. Terdapat satu artikel mengenai buta warna (colour blindness) di Amerika – maknanya semua orang Amerika apa jua warnanya adalah sama. Rupa-rupanya kesaksamaan di antara orang yang berlainan warna tidak membawa kepada penghasilan yang baik. Makna sebenarnya ialah segala-galanya, termasuk peluang, mestilah berdasarkan merit.

4. Pasti pun ada seorang lelaki hitam duduk di kerusi Presiden di White House. Pada suatu masa ada seorang jeneral hitam memegang jawatan Ketua angkatan tentera Amerika dan sebagai Setiausaha Negara. Dan terdapat pada masa ini orang kulit hitam yang memegang jawatan-jawatan tinggi di Washington.

5. Tetapi pada hakikatnya, kebanyakan orang kulit hitam miskin, sentiasa terlibat dengan dadah dan jenayah. Walaupun kulit hitam merupai hanya kira-kira 10% daripada penduduk, peratusan orang kulit hitam di penjara adalah hampir 50%. Pendapatan per kapita orang kulit hitam adalah jauh di bawah purata kebangsaan.

6. Mempunyai taraf yang sama dengan orang kulit putih tidak memberi manfaat yang banyak kepada orang kulit hitam. Tidak disebut pula pembunuhan orang kulit hitam yang disengajakan oleh pihak polis, yang kemudiannya terlepas dakwaan.

7. Seperti yang saya jangkakan Majalah ini memasukkan kajian rekod Malaysia mengenai hubungan kaum. Ia mengakui bahawa walaupun terdapat tindakan afirmatif di bawah Dasar Ekonomi Baru, ekonomi Malaysia menunjukkan prestasi yang lebih baik daripada kebanyakan negara-negara membangun yang lain. Kaum-Kaum hidup dalam harmoni yang relatif. Tiada pergaduhan kaum yang serius.

8. Tindakan afirmatif di bawah DEB seolah-olah telah mengurangkan jurang perbezaan dalam pengagihan kekayaan antara orang Melayu asli dan orang Cina. Ada disebut juga bahawa Bumiputra memiliki hanya 2 peratus kekayaan negara sebelum DEB dan kekayaan mereka kini telah meningkat kepada 19%. Perbezaan itu masih ada tetapi berkurangan. (Di Amerika Joseph Stiglitz menulis bahawa jurang perbezaan antara yang kaya dan miskin telah mencapai tahap yang berbahaya).

9. India dan Afrika Selatan juga telah mencuba tindakan afirmatif. Tetapi hasilnya tidak sebaik seperti di Malaysia.

10. Nampaknya Malaysia lebih berjaya dalam membina masyarakat berbilang kaum yang lebih saksama daripada kebanyakan negara-negara berbilang kaum yang lain termasuk Amerika Syarikat. Dasar kesamarataan layanan iaitu meritokrasi tidak membuahkan hasil yang ketara.

11. Majalah Foreign Affairs seolah mengakui bahawa tindakan afirmatif Malaysia mempunyai merit. Sepertimana terdapat perubahan pendapat mengenai dasar kadar pertukaran tetap Malaysia, kini terdapat juga perubahan kutukan mengenai tindakan afirmatif kita, sekurang-kurangnya oleh Majalah Foreign Affairs. Media asing lain hanya menyalin laporan berat sebelah yang dibuat lama dahulu tanpa cuba untuk menyiasat realiti mengenai pengurusan hubungan kaum Malaysia dan pembangunan ekonominya.

    Salam Tun.

    To Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim via Tun.
    .
    The arrest of Xavier Justo in Thailand does not prove anything at all. As i see it, he just capitalize on something fishy that took place in PetroSaudi International & 1MDB JV. So, Tunku Abdul Aziz please don’t jump to conclusion that everything is fine with 1MDB. I should “thanks’ him because of his greediness have lead to the exposure of some unanswered question on how 1MDB have been managed.

    You should thanks him as i do. Maybe some of his information is false or added and tampered with. But there are some information that is genuine and you just can’t discard them all.

    Please don’t be too eager to shout loudly that everything about 1MDB is regard to oust Najib from his post.

    Please shout loudly for the “truth” as what you have done to Tun you should do it to Najib and 1MDB also. So please !!!!!!

    Wassalam to you and Tun.

    Terima kasih HBT456, Mubarakchan, Hajar, adelhead, zahar, MohdHaligHjHamid, Musato dan Milshah saya telah ceria semula dari kesunyian apabila semua aktif semula.
    Kamu benar Hskamal, walau pun saya bukan berbangsa india saya amat cintakan kedamaian sesama kaum di dalam negara kita, kita semua adalah rakyat negara ini yang harus membangunkan negara dan membuat negara tanah tumpah darah kita ini aman damai tanpa kekecohan dan kezaliman yang tidak di sedari oleh tangan tangan pemimpin. Kita tidak perlu menjadi seperti negara2 yang sering di landa masaalah perhimpunan, mogok dan peperangan jika tangan tangan yang memimpin telus dan tidak mengumpulkan kekayaan dari unsur dana negara. Semua manusia memang tidak perfect tetapi sikap lebih perfect adalah wajib bagi pemimpin dalam sesebuah negara.

    Pada dasarnya najib sememangnya anak buah yang tidak kenang budi tun dan sejenis orang yg buruk perangai, baling batu sembunyi tangan dan seperti kayu hulu parang yang sedang memotong/menebang semula kawan kawan nya.
    yang penting dia seorang pm yang cakap tidak serupa bikin, seperti dia berkata dia tidak akan lawan atau hentam Tun semula, dia memang tak lawan dan tak hentam tun tetapi dia menyusun individu lain untuk mewakilkannya. Ini jenis orang memang jahat, harus hati hati. Harap jika sirul balik nanti pandai pandai lah ya kerana polis australia sudah merakamkan pengakuan sirul. Ini macam main catur, jika sirul di jatuhkan hukuman atau tidak, kerajaan malaysia tetap akan di check mate…..jangan baling batu sembunyi tangan lagi..

    Salam ramadan, Tun

    Tun, i, sincerely and with your permission would like to revisit your moments in history as the PM of this country.

    Tun, i,, seek to find out from you, matters concerning your selections criteria and considerations you had when electing or appointing people in your administration. Did you really had any concern about the type and qualities of leaders which were coming from Umno and the other parties to be included in the government?

    Clearly there were some very damaging mistakes you made in your selections of leaders to represent the various races.

    Despite the success rate in all the election during your leadership, you also had to face many challenges along the way, because of the corrupt practices your cabinet members were owning up to. Even when there were some clear cut evidence of wrongdoings towards your cabinet members, you, still kept them – let them do more damages to your administration.

    It is not fare to blame you entirely for the problems, but you must also take some blame for it, when you did not act on those cabinet members who were corrupt and disgraced your administration through their conduct and practices.

    Almost all the leaders who represented the various political parties in the government during your premiership was involved in corrupt practices and wrongdoings, which effected the welfare and the well being of the various races, the Indians especially, under Samy Vellu.

    Majority of Indians today, are still living in hard core poverty, ever since we gained independence. Only a handful of Indians who are well connected to MIC leadership together able to rob all the wealth meant for the community. They even go as far as using criminal intimidation and also commit crime towards any ordinary Indians, to accumulate this ill-gotten wealth for themselves.

    If we care to do some soul searching, and look around us, we can easily see how some of the MIC leaders today, are living in lavish life style through their ill-gotten wealth, at the expense of the very poor and ordinary Indians.

    All the opportunity available for the Indians, are first grabbed by the the MIC leaders and their followers before it can reach the ordinary Indians, on the street. The practices has become a norm in MIC, they’re all taking turns to deprive the Indians, of their opportunity to be successful and a better life.

    Tun, your BERSIH CEKAP AMANAH slogan was an inspiration to many. But unfortunately it was not the same for those cabinet members, past and present to practice. They were simply blinded by the wealth available at their disposal, which needed their honesty and righteousness for fair distribution.

    Tun, please correct the wrongs by cleansing the entire members of the cabinet, while your’re still able to’.

    Please reignite the fundamentals and the attributes needed to be a true leader to their people.

    42. That apanama orang pas atau oku kata building mosque in kampung baru cannot wash away the pm sin.

    43. The kb mosque wont wash away the sin, thats for sure.

    44. The kb mosque will only depreciate myr further.

    45. The kb mosque shows the pm kacang lupa kulit.

    46. The kb mosque shows the greed and fear of the pm.

    47. The more the ex ministers talk, the more they show a very bad example to malaysians in the name of the official religion,

    48. Aku rasa jika kementerian pakai duit rakyat untuk maintain mosque negara di kuala lumpur pasti bn akan menang.

    49. The culture of umno in over pricing policy not only set a bad name to malaysia, this culture made moslem looks bad in the eyes of the world.

    50. If the pm insist that, then ,I can safely say non moslem will not vote bn en block in malaysis in the nex ge, less than 3 years from now.

    Tun

    For our fellow Bloggers sc and Balance.

    Have you all noticed that our friends on this Blog seemed to be much more open than they would have been when you meet them face to face.
    This is the beauty of our beloved Tun’s Blogspot of which we are all privileged to come together as one and speak our hearts out together as one. What am I trying to say ?

    Our beloved Malaysia is a beautiful land with its beautiful peoples inhabiting it. I realised this long long ago. Maybe I am trained to see and not to look.

    This is the main reason I never emigrated anywhere because as I grew older, I realised the fortunate position we are all in Malaysia. And how jealous some people like the Dictator (1959-2015) were when they see the bountiful land of Malaysia and its peoples. Hence, absurd snide remarks have been thrown by the Dictator at us and also behind our backs in Washington and points beyond.

    This is just a minor aberration because the Godless Ultra Communistic Political and Social System has gone toxic before the Dictator’s departure. And with his departure like any dictatorial political System, Singapore’s political System will go kaput.

    There are many many reasons why I am exceedingly happy to live with you all in this beautiful land and its beautiful people. So, why should I go away and not to contribute with my peers and you folks to make it great ?

    Our 6 great Prime Ministers through their efforts big or small have the same intention of pushing our beloved Malaysia to greater heights. But there is another saying, ‘ Something happened on the way to Rome !’

    As we all are from 3 great civilizations, and have lived together, worked together and played together for so many centuries, it is absurd and unbecoming to be upset by the adoption of the stupid MONEY MONEY MONEY FAILED POLICIES OF THE LATE DICTATOR LEE KUAN YEW (1959 -2015). We should always do our own thing under any circumstances.

    After all it is only money, but it is good the sooner these human fables and foibles are sorted out the better. ‘TWO WONGS WILL NOT MAKE A RIGHT’ as Australia’s Prime Minister Curtin said.

    I never like to blow my trumpet unlike the Dictator (1959-2015) because it is a sign of inferiority complex.

    Our beloved Malaysia with its beautiful and wonderful people who have intellect and completely civilsed, now has the choice to the ranks of the very best which are Switzerland and Japan or sink to the bottom of the heap.

    I strongly believe we can achieve our Malaysian Dream for all if we look away from all those material temptations offered by the cunning Singaporeans, and other international types with knives hidden behind their backs. This is the real and normal World of cut and thrust which some fortunates are shielded from.

    The great Dictator felled on his own sword and lost US$108 Billions on Wall Street in October 2008. ALL SINGAPOREANS TO THIS DAY BEHAVED AS THOUGH NOTHING HAPPENED. but between you and me, it was the WORLD’S BIGGEST SINGLE LOSS BY A SOVEREIGN NATION EVER ! Stupid to do speculative investment at the behest of cunning international types !

    It is towards the application of the Affirmative Action Policy to up-lift the poor and disadvantaged that has brought our distinguished Prime Ministers from the great Tunku, the Father of Development, Tun Abdul Razak, the strong Tun Hussein Onn and our great Statesman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tun Abdullah Badawi and Dato Seri Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak to the fore. They worked hard and sacrificed for us. This we must not forget.

    To me, it is important that all our communities hold and unite together as there are jealous troublemakers at work against our interests. Wikileaks. Singapore spying on Malaysia. They want to soften us by making us to quarrel and fight amongst ourselves. This is no good.

    Therefore, it is important for any majority community to provide the leadership which is FIRM, FAIR AND CARING to be effective to rule over the whole country. All our distinguished Prime Ministers have shown this could be done with grace and polity.

    We should emulate Switzerland and Japan on areas which will fit and benefit us most when we return to NORMALCY.

    We Malaysians are normal people like everyone else in this World. With the proper leaderships, we will be on our way again, not to Rome but to Malaysia’s own 2020.

    MALAYSIANS BOLEH ! MALAYS BOLEH ! MALAYSIANS BOLEH ! MALAYSIA IS A GREAT COUNTRY !

    Salam YAB dan Yang DiKasihi Tun,

    1. Bercakap tentang ’kesamarataan/equality’, pada bulan Ramadhan ini saya ada membuat pemerhatian tentang restoren-restoren Islam di tempat saya. Mungkin saya silap, tapi apa yang saya nampak, restoren2 Melayu/Islam semuanya tutup pada waktu siang (mungkin ada yang buka selepas Asar; lewat petang), tapi restoren2 Mamak/India Muslim/Islam boleh dikatakan semuanya buka pada waktu siang (pagi, tengahari buta); saya ada lalu dibeberapa restoren (mamak/India Muslim) pada tengahari dan yang peliknya ada yang mempunyai pelanggan. Mengapa keadaan ini berlaku? Adakah peraturan ’tidak boleh buka restoren’ pada siang hari (pagi, tengahari, etc.) cuma tertakluk kepada restoren2 Melayu Islam? Atau pegawai2 penguat-kuasa TIDUR, ataupun ada isu/kes lain?

    2. Nampaknya 1MDB cuba mengabui mata umat Islam di bulan Ramadhan ini dengan berita menaja menaik-taraf/pembangunan semula Masjid Jamek di Kampong Baru. Dengar khabar sudah RM20 juta bajet untuk tujuan tersebut. Lucunya, duit tersebut adalah duit HUTANG. Hutang keliling pinggang, dan ada masaalah membayar hutang (sampai kena berhutang lagi), tapi boleh pula menderma/menaja untuk masjid; hebat! Setahu saya menderma hukumnya sunat saja, tapi membayar hutang adalah WAJIB. Sudahlah Tabung Haji dilibatkan dengan masaalah 1MDB dengan pembelian tanah ’anugerah’ Kerajaan dari 1MDB dengan harga yang teramat tinggi (berpuluh kali ganda dari harga asal); guna pula duit pendeposit2 TH yang kebanyakannya orang yang bukan ada banyak wang; ini penganiayaan terhadap pendeposit2. Hingga kini tanah tersebut masih lagi belum terjual walaupun masa ’press conference’ kononnya berderet orang mahu beli tanah tersebut – auta saja lebih. Berdosa besar BODs TH yang menipu pendeposit2 TH. Saya ada simpan duit di TH dan saya tidak redha duit saya disalah-gunakan.

    3. Letak jawatan sajalah PM Najib. Duit pendeposit2 TH (orang kebanyakan; ada yang miskin & tidak ada wang yg banyak) di’rembat’, dan boleh pula berbangga dengan RM20 juta yang didermakan untuk menaik-taraf Masjid Kampong Baru.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    *** Semoga Allah S.W.T. sentiasa melindungi Tun sekeluarga. ***

    Dear Tun,

    I hope all is well since I notice that entries from commentators have not been updated since last night. Hope you have just been busy and that all is well with you and Tun Siti Hasmah.

    Tun, please excuse me for diverting again from the topic you’ve posted ‘racial equality’ since I’ve already also given my views on the topic, and because I need to share with you on an equally important subject worthy of our thoughts.

    I have read the Father’s Day dedication that Dato’ Seri Mukhriz wrote for you http://m.www.astroawani.com/berita-malaysia/daulat-seorang-ayah-nukilan-rasa-mukhriz-mengenai-ayahnya-63240. I must say that Dato’ Mukhriz is very fortunate to have his father still around healthy n kickin’ and still very much needed by the rakyat jelata as our guide and a father figure to us rakyat Malaysia. I know also that you never and still don’t flaunt your children like some politicians do. All your children have made it up the ladder of success by their own merit.

    Tun, I support the idea that one day Dato’ Mukhriz would become the Prime Minister of Malaysia. I do not know when but I see a PM in the making in Dato Mukhriz. Perhaps time will unleash all the potentials in him. While we all wait for that I feel he should be preparing for the worst and hope for the best. I have read that he has obtained two degrees in business and marketing from Japan and the US, and has had various experience and years working. I hope Dato’ Mukhriz will want to learn from his father whom I know had studied in other fields apart from his medical practitioner background. I know Tun that you also profess a degree in law, and finance. You never stopped studying. That is why you were able to administer this country with such success and brought Malaysia to world fame. You are a master of knowledge Tun and that is the reason why to this very day no one other Prime Minister can ever replace you.

    Thus, I sincerely hope Dato’ Mukhriz will continue his efforts to be the best of himself, learn and broaden his wings and knowledge in all the fields there are to manage a good government. Dato’ Mukhriz must. Do not rely on others, do not lean on peer advisers who could ruin instead of build. Like what we see of the current Prime Minister DS Najib. His advisers have become his poison assassin to him.

    So Tun, do not say no and under estimate Dato Mukhriz. If we can see his great abilities and potentials as a leader of this nation of Malaysia, why not you Tun.

    To Dato’ Mukhriz – jadilah seorang pemimpin yang semakin tinggi anda berada semakin rendah hati anda, bak umpama padi semakin berisi semakin tunduk ia ke bumi. Mendongak ke langit biarlah kaki berpijak kukuh di bumi nyata. Merendah diri, jujur, amanah, bersih jiwa raga, ingat pada Allah swt, seperti ayahanda Tun Mahathir, insya Allah Dato’ Mukhriz akan kekal di persada. Kami menanti saat Dato’ menerajui negara, walau mungkin waktu itu ayahanda dicintai mungkin sudah tiada. Namun cinta kasih beliau tetap kekal bersama setiap rakyat Malaysia.

    Terima kasih Tun Dr. Mahathir kerana mendengar luahan hati kami yang juga anak-anak Tun walau tiada pernah bersua muka, namun kasih anak tetap bersamamu Tun hingga akhir hayat.

    DEB bukan sahaja membantu golongan Bumiputera malah membantu menjana peluang yang sama pada yang bukan Bumiputera dan ianya suatu pembohongan sekiranya ada golongan yang berkata DEB berat sebelah.

    Orang Melayu dan Bumiputera lain rata-rata tidak mempunyai sentimen perkauman malah membenarkan bangsa lain untuk turut serta mencari rezeki didalam kampung mereka sendiri.

    Acuan yang dipelopori pemimpin terdahulu mantap dan berjaya mengukuhkan semangat toleransi berbilang kaum dan agama dengan saling hormat menghormati secara umumnya berjaya sehingga era pemerintahan Tun Mahathir.

    Malaysia merupakan negara yang cukup mewah dan mampu memakmurkan semua rakyat tidak kira asal usul kaum dan agama dan kejayaan dirasai oleh semua dari golongan miskin sehingga kepada golongan kaya, anak anak dapat kesekolah, perkhidmatan hospital dan sistem pengangkutan yang cukup baik sehingga pelawat asing pernah berkata..”duit bertaburan di bumi Malaysia, yang perlu dibuat oleh rakyat, hanya mengutipnya”.

    Warna warni dan kemanisan itu semua sudah tidak ada lagi, malah sekarang Malaysia diambang kemusnahan, masih belum terlambat hanya untuk menyedabkan hati, Malaysia menuju kearah negara “Kapitalis Terancang” dan sebuah negara Korup secara pilihan.

    Sebenarnya kita sendiri yang merosakkan negara ini, golongan pemerintah Bumiputera dengan sifat dan sikap yang suka berbalah sesama sendiri, khianat dan tidak amanah, manakala umumnya bangsa lain yang tamak dan tidak pernah puas dan senantiasa berusaha untuk mendapatkan segala-galanya tanpa menggira hak.

    Mana bisa minyak bercampur air, mana boleh parti yang cenderung kepada bangsa bergabung, tidak jelas pendokong agama untuk terus bermuafakat, mustahil satu kapal lebih dari satu nakhoda. Mana ada negara didunia tanpa ada bangsa dominan, sekiranya berbilang bangsa menjadi satu, agama dan adat resam dominan menjadi pengukur pentadbiran secara mutlak dan sekiranya perlu kepada perubahan dominasi pastinya disebabkan kelemahan bangsa itu sendiri.

    Perubahan dominan selalunya berlaku dengan kejam dan pemulihan mengambil masa yang amat panjang.

    Wahai bangsaku, sedarlah…kekayaan individu memang terlalu indah bagaikan dunia milik kita seorang, terasa kita tidak akan mati, pintu hati tertutup dengan bisikan kawan kawan mabuk sehingga saat ke liang lahad.

    Assalammualaikum Tun yang dihormati.apakah tindakan menteri2,ahli2 umno sekarang ne.perlukah hanya melihat kehancuran bangsa sendiri.apa yang diperhatikan kita semua hanya pandai berkata2 tanpa ada tindakan.pepatah ada berkata jangan sampai nasi menjadi bubur.masa tu bangsa kita telah dijual.negara kita telah tergadai.apakah kita sanggup hanya sekadar melihat sahaja.

    I agree with you Mr Mubarakchan,
    Rome, Tokyo or even Dusseldorf were not built in a day, but these developed societies have taken light of liberalisation. ie freedom of speech, freedom to criticise and condemn the inadequacies of political policies, Race, Religion, work ethic. The suppression of those who are useless and to drive and improve products and services is what built these nations. Specialisation and working at it, craftiness, pockets of industry based on a needs basis… In Germany they call it Mittelschdat industrialisation.

    In Malaysia, the mentality is, ‘The Chinese have too much’ or ‘ the indians are criminals’ or ‘Malays are lazy’
    I find these pre-school arguments immature and a waste of time. They portray the depth of non existent intellect prevalent in Malaysian society, much of which have left for greener pastures. That is one of the problems with affirmative action, educated people leave in droves. The Do-ers, the people you need to build societies leave. The only 2 parties that remain are the corrupt rorters pillaging and bribing and raping society and the uneducated who are stuck unable to support their own.

    Tun, Malaysia is a country where there is no real intellect. No real Rule of Law, No real Global Innovation.
    Look at Korea. They have advanced beyond Malaysia and even Japan. The question is what are the causes and how have they advanced? Shanghai obliterates Malaysia. Full stop,.. and this was achived in only 20 years. Just look at their HSR and Subway system, foot paths and roads. The place is developed, sophisticated and cultured.

    I would say it is because Malaysian culture and the NEP have brought abouts a mentality of ‘entitlement’. What a useless thing entitlement is. You breed useless unproductive citizens thinking they can get away with doing nothing and thinking the wealth will land in their laps.

    Malaysia does not have the mindset of Japan or Germany, America or Europe. Malaysia – the Chinese have too much already, its our (Bumiputra’s) turn – as if the money just landed in the china man’s pocket. No, it didnt- I’m sorry to say it took hard work and ingenuity for business to happen…

    I feel sorry for a nation that could have been something. Something to be proud of. It’s too late Tun, Najib has destroyed the foundations… of partly your legacy. What a shame…

  13. johigh Jun 28,2015 10:05 PM

    AMERICANS HAVE GONE CRAZY. Man can marry man. Woman can marry women. What a joke. On top of that GANJA is now legal; got home delivery service just like pizza. Bear in mind that in some countries it’s capital punishment to be caught distributing/cultivating GANJA.

    THE OLDEST CIVILIZATION HAS GONE CRAZY. Greece is on the verge of bankruptcy.

    BACKWARD-THINKING THIRD WORLD MALAYSIANS ALSO HAVE GONE CRAZY. Bla, bla, bla…

    The well-worn cliche, ‘ Rome was not built in a day. ‘ nor Switzerland or Japan !

    Yes agree they build it with AWARENESS, hard-work, dedication, devotion and abilities to see their true self, possibilities and potentials. The current false systems in Malaysia of supremacy, born with the rights to do and take are spoiling everyone. Just by using any of the words starting with (“M” & “B” & “I”) can get and do anything and everything will do more harm then good. The abilities to realise it will be the starting point for something good and really doing well to happen. Reverse Robin Hoodism (from working class pockets to elite class pockets)is worst than Zionism or Nazism or any systems ever created.The bogeyman tactics are causing more self-inflict harm which many are too blind to see.

    Hope the realization will come soon to save all Malaysians from a journey to failure.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    HBT, universal accepted? InsyaAllah (dengan izin Allah s.w.t)

    Najib tangguhkan pemilihan UMNO? Seperti dijangkakan.

    Seperti saya pernah ramalkan, Najib hanya mengikut perundangan. Najib hanya mengikut seperti arwah Tun Razak.

    Ada 13 Mei, istiharkan darurat. Itu sahaja.

    Kepandaian politik? Tiada.

    Makan gaji? Ada.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  16. milshah Jun 28,2015 7:42 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Pemilihan UMNO telah ditunda 18 bulan lagi. Alasan yang diberi adalah kerana persediaan untuk menghadapi PRU 14 dan kerana ianya pernah dilakukan semasa pemerintahan Tun.

    Banyak perkara dihalalkan dengan alasan ianya pernah dilakukan semasa pemerintahan Tun. Contoh lain adalah orang UMNO kena setia kepada ketua dan tidak boleh melaporkan hal negara kepada media asing kerana iainya dilakukan semasa pemerintahan Tun.

    Tetapi berkenaan cara tangani isu 1MDB tidak pula dilakukan seperti semasa pemerintahan Tun. Pada krisis ekonomi 1997, Tun dengan jelas memberitahu kepada rakyat krisis itu disebabkan oleh penyangak-penyangak matawang. Apabila dituduh Tun mengamalkan kronisme, Tun segera mempamerkan kontrak-kontrak kerajaan untuk tatapan umum yang jelas menunjukan mereka yang dapat kontrak bukanlah dari kalangan kenalan Tun.

    Tun telah tanggani segala isu-isu yang dihadapi dengan transparent. Segala yang menjadi kerisauan rakyat pada ketika itu dijawab sepenuhnya tanpa ada selindung-selindung. Full disclosure was done.

    Kelaulah nak jadikan role model pemerintahan Tun untuk menghalalkan cara pemerintahan sekarang, mengapa isu 1MDB tidak ditangani seperti Tun tanggani pada pemerintahan Tun?

    Jawapan yang diberi hanyalah ‘tunggu laporan audit’ dan ‘aset lebih dari liabiliti’. Jawapan tidak menjawab soalan. Tiada transparancy. Tidak ada siapa pun yang dihukum atau direhatkan dari tugas sementara siasatan dilakukan. Tiada accountabilty. Selepas itu, jawapan yang diberi berubah-ubah. Contoh duit yang dipulankan dari Caymen mula-mula kata ada dalam bank Singapura, selepas itu bank tersebut pula kata tiada. Kemudian kata dalam RM, selepas itu dalam bentuk unit.

    Sememangnya kerajaan memerlukan sokong rakyat untuk terus menjadi kerajaan. Tetapi bagaimana rakyat ingin sokong apabila tiada tranparency dan accountabilty?

    Saya sedih melihat tiada seorang pun pemimpin UMNO atau ahli MT atau ahli UMNO tiada menyuarakan bantahan apabila diumumkan pemilihan UMNO ditunda 18 bulan lagi. Adakah mereka juga bersetuju dengan Najib untuk kekal memimpin BN pada PRU 14?

    Kalau nak gunakan alasan kena setia kepada ketua sebab masa Tun pun setia, sepatutnya isu 1MDB pun perlulah ada tranparency dan accountabilty seperti pada zaman pemerintahan Tun.

    Mungkin tiada siapa berani bersuara kerana mereka yakin BN tetap akan menang pada PRU 14 walaupun Najib memimpin BN. Ini kerana mereka yakin orang-orang kampung dan Sabah dan Sarawak masih menyokong BN.

    Ternyata mereka masih dalam self denial kalau mereka fikir BN akan kekal selama-lamanya sebagai kerajaan walauapapun berlaku.

    Pada zaman Pak Lah, semua berkata Pak Lah akan dapat kekalkan majority 2/3 sebelum PRU12. Sangkaan ini bukan sahaja salah malah kehilangan beberapa negeri kepada pembangkang.

    Pada PRU 13, semua orang sangka Najib akan sekurang-kurangnya pertahan jumlah kerusi. Sangkaan ini juga salah, dengan jumlah kerusi BN berkurang dari PRU 12, buat pertama kali popular vote jatuh ke 47% sahaja. Malah banyak kerusi-kerusi yang dimenangi BN menang dengan majority begitu tipis sekali.

    Muhyiddin ada berkata kalau pertukaran % sedikit sahaja kepada pakatan, maka banyak lagi kerusi akan hilang.

    Perlu diingat pada PRU 14, begitu ramai pengundi-pengundi baru yang berjuta-juta akan undi. Mereka ini adalah dari kalangan muda-mudi dan tidak terikat dengan kesetiaan pada BN. Apakah BN yakin dengan isu 1MDB dan cara pimpinan Najib, BN akan terus menang? Bahkan adakah ahli-ahli UMNO yakin dengan pimpinan Najib? Adakah mereka suka pimpinan Najib?

    Berpijaklah di bumi yang nyata. Jangan buat sangkaan-sangkaan yang lebih kepada syok sendiri.

    Malay supremacy is most often being wrongly interpreted by many empty souls out there.

    They want to think that just by words the message is good enough to give the desired impression to the other races living together here. During our adolescence, we’re thought to seek knowledge, and when knowledge is obtained we fail wisely….(wisdom)

    Action speaks louder than words.It’s the core area involving human behavioral requirements one must have to be given whatever standings and position in our society – we must not ask people to respect us, we must earn the respect, with our actions as the supreme creation of Allah the Almighty.

    “We must be able to display ourselves in the most noble perspective to be accorded and given a social standings”

    We should be very grateful and thankful to live in a multiracial environment with the dominant race being the Malay Muslim race. But sadly due to the erosion of wisdom and philosophies the Malay Muslims if not all lost their way in the wilderness(astray) by their own actions and behavior.

    I always believed and also tell my non Malay friends that, as long as the Malays holds the political power the others are in good hands.

    But currently is it so?? Can we safely still think so? After witnessing many short falls and bad practices put on display, leading to many sad and worrying development taking place effecting the social ecosystem and our livelihood, it is not wrong for others to think how unfortunate the Malay supremacy has damaged our society politically.

    The Malay Muslim race must quickly regain back their supremacy through their noble qualities which is inborn in them.

    Dear Tun,

    Hak untuk mendapat pendidikan bagi setiap anak Malaysia harus tidak dibeda-bedakan atas dasar kaum. Dengan mewujudkan sekolah-sekolah cina dan tamil selain sekolah aliran kebangsaan sistem pendidikan negara ini sebenarnya telah menggagalkan perpaduan nasional dari peringkat akarumbi. Bermula dari keluarga ke tadika cina sebagai contoh, ke sekolah rendah jenis kebangsaan cina ke sekolah menengah jenis kebangsaan cina – anak2 bangsa cina contohnya tidak bercampur gaul dengan bangsa melayu, tidak memahami budaya agama orang melayu malah tidak berapa memahami/fasih bahasa orang melayu. Begitu dengan orang india yang juga terpisah di sekolah aliran bahasa tamil. Mereka bertemu di peringkat usia yang sudah tertanam prejudis di minda mereka, berbanding jika di peringkat kanak-kanak yang masih ‘suci’ jiwa mereka. Maka sebab inilah multi racial harmony dan equality sukar dicapai hingga kini, malah ia semakin buruk kini apabila satu kaum (DAP) itu sudah berani mencabar kaum asli (asal) tanah melayu ini malah berniat mengambil alih kuasa politik negara.

    Tun, izinkan saya melencong dari topik – hari ini Ahmad Maslan buat kenyataan bahawa pemilihan UMNO akan diadakan hanya selepas PRU14, walaupun semalam PM mengumumkan yang pemilihan UMNO ditangguh 18 bulan. Walaupun Tun pun kata ini adalah perkara biasa, tetapi dalam situasi yang melanda negara kini nampak sangatlah PM menggunakan segala kuasa yang ada pada beliau sehingga parti UMNO sendiri tidak boleh buat apa, apatah lagi rakyat sudah jadi lumpuh tidak mampu buat apa hanya akur sajalah kepada segala kehendak yang bermaharaja-lela itu.

    Maka Tun, berhubung tersebut di atas saya tabik keputusan pengerusi SukaGuam yang hari ini telah mengumum melepaskan kesemua jawatan beliau dalam UMNO. Walaupun beliau sudah memberikan sebab beliau melepaskan jawatan adalah kerana perniagaan beliau, tetapi saya percaya ianya lebih daripada itu. Saya tabik kerana tindakan beliau adalah tindakan yang bermaruah dan berani, bukan mendahulukan kepentingan diri beliau. Saya melihat pak menteri UMNO, ahli2 MT UMNO, wanita, pemuda, puteri, adun UMNO semuanya takut kehilangan periuk nasi mereka, apa lagi kini PM sudah pun menggandakan gaji mereka berganda2. Mana nak dapat duit macam ni banyak tapi kerja tak seberapa oiii…kata hati mereka Tun.

    Dengan perkembangan yang dilakukan oleh pengerusi SukaGuam hari ini saya berharap ahli-ahli UMNO yang juga memegang jawatan-jawatan dalam parti akan terbuka mata minda dan mata hati mereka untuk berfikir – maruah atau perut mereka. Mereka di situ pun sebab rakyat yang letak mereka di situ asalnya untuk menjaga rakyat bukan untuk menjaga perut mereka. Saya sayu melihat TS Muhyiddin Yassin yang hanya mampu melihat dan akur dengan permainan PM. DS Shafei Apdal juga.

    Tun, jika ROS boleh lucutkan keahlian DS Palanivel dari MIC, kenapa ia tidak boleh buat yang sama pada DS Najib?

    Semakin hari PM kita semakin menjadi Kim Jong Un. Ini bukan hasutan tetapi satu perbandingan yang ikhlas, disertai airmata saya.

    Terima kasih Tun Dr. Mahathir. I hope you do actually read our comments because I admit I can’t describe the feeling of being able to write and reach to you. And I hope that you will protect us should the sharks from SKMM try to devour us Tun.

    Goodnight Tun, selamat bersahur dan berpuasa esok. Jaga diri dan jaga keselamatan Tun, walau di mana saja Tun berada. Love you full!

    Tun

    The screaming headline in the UMNO owned naive, friendly and hospitable New Straits Times today, 29 June 2015. ‘ LESSONS FROM AN UNLIKELY PLACE.’ followed by ‘ EXEMPLARY NANNY STATE’S : As the US engages in debate over racial inequality, Singapore appears to have got it right.’

    Brainwashing at its very best !

    If this screaming headline did not appear in Malaysia’s very own UMNO owned New Straits Times, we would all have thought it came from the PAP controlled ‘ Straits Times ‘ of Singapore.

    This is the finest brainwashing at its best or the last blast of hot air or ‘Bluffology’ from the failed Republic of Singapore after the departure of the late Dictator Lee Kuan Yew (1959-2015). Do not forget that every Dictatorial System sooner or later will collapse after the departure of the Dictator like Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Stalin, Mao, Tito, Castro, Lee Kuan Yew etc. It is not Democracy. It is a sham system.

    And the article was written by the CNN correspondent, and Egyptian American or American Egyptian, Fareed Zakaria who to me is the Arab equivalent of Frank Ching who also wrote zany political articles with an Uncle Sam bias.

    If this article had appeared a few years earlier, I would have believed it too. But in the year 2015, 27 June a few days after Mid-summer, the article, which is full of praises for the Godless Ultra-Communistic Political and Social failed State of the Republic of Singapore, sounds absurd and fawning in the face of real facts.

    Perhaps,the writer has forgotten we live in a multi-polar World, not a bi-Polar one which was clearly black and white, Communism versus Capitalism.

    There have been many descriptions of the barren isle of the Republic of Singapore with a Godless Ultra Communistic Political and Social System created by the Dictator in his own interest to maintain power over the citizens. By all accounts, his fear of losing power was his greatest fear of all. It was alleged he had a fortune teller/priest constantly by his side ! His political System has the solid abettment of the Western journalists like Fareed Zakaria who described it as a ‘Nanny State’.

    This description is far from the truth as recent events in the isle revealed. Other dressed up descriptions like Singapore Model or authoritarian capitalism or benign dictatorship (no such thing) or rich Cuba without the havanas but the bananas were used as smoke-screens to cover-up the real GODLESS ULTRA-COMMUNISTIC POLITICAL AND SOCIAL SYSTEM CREATED BY THE DICTATOR LEE KUAN YEW (1959-2015) FOR HIS OWN BENEFIT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE PEOPLE. In other words, the perpetrator/s of these names probably came from the Dictator himself after all he claimed to be from Cambridge.

    At the last count, there are at least 39 Failed Polcies of the late Dictator (1959-2015). I will present them soon.

    Is the purpose of this article by Fareed Zakaria written to rebut the honest to goodness article in the American magazine, ‘ Foreign Affairs.’praising the real success of our beloved’s Malaysia’s affirmative program as quoted by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ?’

    On my part, I consider this article was written for the liberal Americans who might object to Malaysia’s inclusion in the TPPA due to its attitude towards refugee events like the Rohingyas etc.,to soften the harsh facts.

    However, this screaming article, ‘ Lessons from an unlikely place.’ is like preaching to the converted on ‘Racial Equality.’ It is not only out-dated but also irrelevant in our beloved Malaysia at the present time.

    IT IS THE BARREN ISLE OF THE REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE WHICH HAS SOMETHING TO LEARN FROM US BECAUSE OUR SOCIETY IS NOT BASED ON MONEY MONEY MONEY !

    As I pointed out before :-

    1. IT IS BETTER FOR THE DISADVANTAGED TO WRITE THEIR OWN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION POLICY. IT SHOULD NOT BE WRITTEN BY WELL-ENSCONCED TYPES WHO THINK WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE DISADVANTAGED. The United States and Singapore under the Dictator Lee Kuan Yew both chiselled their affirmative policies based on the majority race which are the Caucasians and the Chinese respectively. Both policies failed miserably.

    THE POOR BECAME POORER. THE RICH BECAME RICHER.

    2. THE FOCUS ON AFFIRMATIVE ACTION SHOULD BE SELECTIVELY BASED ON THE DISADVANTAGE WITH ALL TARGETS SET AT THEIR AVERAGE/MEAN LEVEL.

    The NEP has served its purpose without the missing link of large private Bumiputra corporations which have evolved into 100 GLCs a’la Singapura without Dictatorial control ! The Affirmative Action to up-lift the needs of the disadvantage is the elephant in the room. This should be the nub of the political and socio-economic policies of Malaysian Governments to come.

    It is a mystery to me how highly intelligent writers and commnentators missed out the solid facts of the failed policies of the late Dictator 1959-2015 who enforced 39 of them WITHIN HIS GODLESS ULTRA COMMUNISTIC POLITICAL AND SOCIAL SYSTEM ? Thenks to the swallows, ducks………..?

    Lest we forget, I like to repeat TJS George’s comment in his Blogspot June 2011, courtesy of Jesscscott Blog :-

    ” The West has spread the impression that Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew is Asia’s outstanding economic miracle man while Malaysia’s Mahathir as a cantankerous ogre, hater of white people and dictator to boot. Both are dressed up portraits. What makes Mahathir special is that while pursuing economic progress, he never lost sight of the larger picture of human values. That cannot be said of Lee Kuan Yew and certainly not of Indonesia’s Suharto or Thailand’s Thaksin Shinawatra.”

    The famous Indian journalist T.J.S. George of India continues his fight against social injustice, corruption, and political anarchies through his columns. He is an independent and not a hired hack.

    Fareed Zakaria was probably invited by the Singaporean Minister in Switzerland to visit Singapore in line with its policy on swallows, ducks, tycoons, journalists, academics, politicians, fellow travellers etc. vide Wikileaks.

    Salam, Tun

    Izinkan saya, memberi reply kepada HBT 456 yg bersembunyi, dgn tidak memaparkan namanya – dgn izin, Tun

    MIC merupakan parti politik yg tidak releven kepada mana2 pihak, khususnya kerajaan dan masyarakat India. Pemimpin2 yg sedang bergelut dalam parti pada masa skrg hanya memikirkan kelangsungan kedudukan mereka dlm parti dan secara otomatik dlm kerajaan, sehingga sanggup mepamerkan perbuatan dan tingkahlaku yg amat memalukan kaumnya dan rakyat Malaysia’ secara umum.

    Lihat bagaimana pemimpin2 MIC dan penyokong2nya(bukanya rakyat india biasa) boleh mencetuskan huru-hara sehingga boleh maki hamun, mencaci, mengugut, kejar-mengejar di atas jalanraya dan tempat awam dan bertumbuk, setiapkali apa2 mesyuarat di adakan di bangunan ibu pejabat MIC.

    Pelbagai watak dan kelakuan buruk yg jijik, kotor dan tidak bermoral telah MIC lalui dan pamerkan selama ini. Bagi masyarakat yg mempunyai tamadun, perkara seumpama yg berlaku dlm parti MIC dan pemimpinya sudah cukup membuktikan bahawa masyarakat dan kerajaan harus menolak drp melantik dan memberi kuasa kepada mereka sebagai pemimpin di mana2 peringkat kehidupan dan kebajikan rakyat.

    Berasaskan sejarah, MIC pasti dan beranggapan bahawa tempat mereka dlm kerajaan adalah exclusive biarpun pemimpin2 mereka hanya mampu menang empat kerusi parlimen sahaja untuk parti kerajaan, yg diterajui org2 Melayu Islam yg sedang menutup mata dan telinga mereka terhadap nasib2 kaum India di tangan pemimpin2 MIC yg sedang bergelut untuk kuasa sehingga mempamerkan keruasan dlm perbuatan mereka sebagai manusia yg di beri akal untuk menjadi ciptaan tuhan yg sempurna untuk bertindak sebagai perkakas, secara mulia.

    Kalau kita membuat perhitungan tentang mana pemimpin yg layak dlm MIC, sudah tentu kita secara am inginkan pemimpin yg ada kepercayaan kepada Tuhan dan paling penting yg mampu obey peraturan dan undang2 kehidupan yg di garis, Tuhan – semua agama langit dan kitab menyatakan yg baik dan mulia.

    Bagi menjawap pendapat HBT 456, yg cetek dan astray tentang kepercayaan Palanivel as a devotee, merupakan satu penghinaan terhadap bukan sahaja pada dia tetapi juga terhadap manusia yg percaya kepada Tuhan dan beragama, seperi ibubapa kita dan yg lain2 seperti kita sendiri, yg sanggup menggunakanya bagi tujuan menjatuhkan maruah seseorang – Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan pun di lihat sebagai bahan cerita murah bagi sesetengah pihak – HBT 456, makan nasi atau benda lain – i’m sorry….

    Saya syorkan kepada pemimpin Melayu Islam yg percaya kepada Allah dan pada bulan ramadan yg mulia ini, agar bertindak dgn penuh insaf dan mulia melalui peranan2 mereka untuk membersihkan parti MIC drp pemimpin2 yg zalim dan rakus, untuk selama-lamanya dan mengembalikan maruah yg telah hilang sama sekali sehingga hari ini.

    Pemimpin MIC hanya sekadar mampu menyumbang sebanyak kurang dari 100 ribu undi kepada BN di peringkat pusat. Keadaan ini sudah cukup kuat bagi org2 Melayu Islam yg berkuasa untuk menggugurkan pemimpin2 yg sah ditolak oleh masyarakat.

    Pemimpin Melayu Islam yg berkuasa harus memberi kerusi2 parlimen dan dun yg diberi kepada MIC, kepada calon2 Melayu Islam. Jgn lagi letakan MIC dan pemimpinya sebagai saluran untuk mendekati kaum india. Semua saluran bantuan kerajaan bagi kaum india, harus di lakukan secara langsung.

    Ini hanya boleh di lakukan oleh org2 Melayu Islam yg berkuasa untuk menyelamatkan kaum tersebut drp ketidaketentuan akibat drp kerakusan dan kezaliman pemimpin2 MIC yg ada skrg.

    Percaya atau tidak, langkah2 inilah yg boleh dan mampu untuk menarik sokongan rakyat kepada mana2 kerajaan yg ingin memerintah.

    For sc. I must admit that I agree with many of your observations of the present physical state of everything.

    The answers are :-

    1. The apex must be firm and fair to make the power trickle down effectively along the sides of the power pyramid to the bottom which must also permit the traditional goodies to be received by the Rakyat with up-held hands at the base. This is called .’ The Malaysian Dream. ‘

    2. There must be a FOLLOW UP on all POLICIES. I found the practice of follow-up in not known in Malaysia. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad knew because he is an expert medical practitioner. This was why he carried the black note-book which most doctors carry. Mistakenly, the ineffective types thought that Tun used the black note-book to hound them.

    3. Your comments would have been even more effective if you kindly avoid being personal. But all in all, an excellent and succinct comment in the National Interest.

    4. The well-worn cliche, ‘ Rome was not built in a day. ‘ nor Switzerland or Japan !

    Tun,
    You want to boast about a magazine stating that Malaysia’s racial NEP policies work.
    Maybe you should pay a visit out side your house and see what a complete mess Malaysia is.

    Look around. Do you see flat foot paths? or shanty shops with poor sanitation standards

    Do you see clean well educated sophisticated people? Or a bunch of biggots with a convoluted peasant ‘brown man’ opinion on Gymnasitc uniforms? The country is a mess. The people are poorly educated, especially from local universities because the standards have had to be lowered….

    What can you do? the legacy of Malaysia will end up like Greece. A bankrupt nation with industry that has been pillaged and rotten to the core.

    What a shame Tun. The country could have been a progressive open society where debate and intellect, art and craft prevailed. Instead it has gotten more extreme. More corrupt. More unrighteous. Disgusting Tun. The country is disgusting.

  25. man Jun 27,2015 11:46 AM

    Salam Tun,

    1 Saya rasa hubungan kaum di Malaysia masih lagi baik dan tidak fragile seperti digembar-gemburkan oleh sesetengah pihak.

    2. Surat khabar lain saya tak tahu tetapi saya menjadi pembaca surat khabar Melayu khususnya Utusan Malaysia dan tidak pernah pula rasa marah membuak-buak terhadap kaum lain bila membaca berita2nya.

    3. Hukum dan budaya adalah hak kaum/agama masing2 dan tidak perlu dipersoalkan oleh sesiapa. Kita dah merdeka lebih 50 tahun dan rakyat Malaysia saya rasa dah cukup matang menerima cara hidup sesebuah kaum yang berbeza dengan cara hidupnya sendiri. Pun begitu apa yang rasmi harus dihormati oleh setiap rakyat. Contohnya agama rasmi Malaysia adalah Islam.

    4. DEB ataupun NEP dalam englishnya hanya cuba untuk merapatkan jurang antara bumiputera dan bukan bumiputera dan mereka ini adalah rakyat Malaysia bukannya PATI atau sebagainya. Kalau kita lihat di negara lain, hak2 kaum bukan pribumi disekat atau telah dinyahkan. Rakyat Malaysia setiap kaum harus rasa berbangga dan bertuah hidup di Malaysia.

    Sekian dulu.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  27. Ginger Jun 27,2015 9:48 AM

    Dear Dr M

    I think you have been somewhat selective in your interpretation, in order to vindicate the NEP.

    To day that in the US ‘Being equal with the whites has not benefitted the blacks much’ and ‘The policy of equality of treatment i.e. meritocracy has not yielded tangible results’ seems to completely ignore the fact that the president is black. 50 years ago this would have been unthinkable.

    While the article indicates that an affirmative action policy can be beneficial, it also criticizes the lack of transparency in Malaysia which has led to corrupt practices and exploitation of the system.

    Quote ‘The major lesson is that affirmative action policies work best when they target the poor. The “creamy layer” problem undermines the very purpose of affirmative action and makes such programs politically unsustainable’

    The ‘creamy layer’ are the wealthiest and most privileged members who are in the group targeted by the policy, but really (as the Indian court affirmed) they should be excluded as they are not poor.

    And that is the problem we now face in Malaysia. While 50 years ago the majority of the poor were Malays and vice versa, this is no longer true. There are now many wealthy Malays, yet they benefit from policies which target the poor, and consequently there has been a growing resentment among the other races regarding this inequity.

    Hence the reason for mass emigration of Chinese and Indian students (the brain drain): Quote ‘Asked why they had gone, 60 percent of those surveyed cited “social injustice.”’

    In effect the NEP is out of date in modern Malaysia. In order to progress it needs to be replaced with a policy that actually targets the poor. And that has nothing to do with race!

    “Party president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said this was to allow the party to concentrate on serving the people, strengthening unity and prepare for the 14th general election.”

    Salam Ramadan Tun,

    Melihat perkembangan politik di Malaysia sekarang sangat meresahkan. Saya sebagai melayu muda dlm keadaan delima. Tiada satu parti berasaskan melayu yg stabil sekarang ini. DAP seakan menang dlm merencanakan keporak perandaan ini. UMNO dgn isu 1MDBnya.. PAS dgn PASmanya, dan PKR hilang arah tanpa kepimpinannya.. DAP dilihat gagah dan lebih berprinsip serta dominan bukan shj dlm pakatan pembangkang malahan dlm semua isu. Saya khuatir jika keadaan berterusan anak muda melayu profesional mula mendekati DAP dan ideologinya. Bahkan sudah kelihatan DAP bersungguh sungguh menarik golongan gen Y ini.
    Saya berdoa agar melayu islam kembali bersatu dgn melupakan perbalahan dan mencatur strategi utk PRU akan dtg. Jgn terjerat dgn permainan DAP dan tangan2 luar yg sentiasa mengintai peluang terhadap ketuanan Melayu ini.

  30. daeng Jun 27,2015 7:36 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Kenyataan Najib menangguhkan pemilihan UMNO 18 bulan lagi ternyata dia sendiri takut pada bayangnya sendiri. Mana “pahlawan”nya dia yang menggelarkan dirinya seorang pahlawan??? Alasan demi alasan yang tidak masuk akal diberinya semata-mata mahu menyembunyikan bangkai di bawah selimut yang nyata walaupun tidak kelihatan tetapi ternyata baunya semua orang boleh menghidunya.

    Saya amat bersetuju dengan pendapat ramai pihak, Najib seorang yang PENGECUT. Dia bukanlah seorang yang tegas, jauh sekali seorang lelaki bergelar suami yang mampu mengawal rumahtangganya. Sebaliknya di rumah, dia adalah suami yang dayus kerana kuasa mutlak dalam satu keluarga milik isterinya Rosmah. Dia sebenarnya adalah “isteri” manakala Rosmah adalah “suami”.

    Berbalik soal penangguhan pemilihan UMNO, diramalkan jika dia menangguhkan 18 bulan lagi maka selepas atau hampir 18 bulan, ramai percaya dia akan menangguhkan pemilihan kepada satu tarikh selepas PRU 14. Alasan baru akan terbit walaupun ramai tahu bahawa niatnya adalah untuk mengekalkan kuasanya sebagai presiden UMNO lantas kuasa selaku PM kekal miliknya. Ini tiada kaitan langsung dengan pengukuhan parti.

    Sekarang pun ramai percaya bahawa Najib sendiri merasakan dirinya bagaikan cacing kepanasan. Sudah tentu tekanan utama bukan datang dari luar UMNO tetapi datangnya dari dalam. Dalam UMNO ada 3 kumpulan:

    i. penyokong Najib – biasanya golongan ini lantang bersuara dan menyatakan dengan jelas sokongan kepada Najib. golongan ini biasanya kaki ampu kerana mereka selesa dan rasa selamat bersikap begini demi mengekalkan kedudukannya. golongan ini bertindak sebagai kaki ampu kerana dia sedar Najib akan membela mereka seperti anjing. resmi seekor anjing, jika diberi makan maka sampai bila pun anjing tidak akan menggigit orang yang memberi makan kepadanya. golongan ini jika ramai pun bilangannya adalah kumpulan yang “bodoh” dan terikut-ikut tanpa berfikir. samalah seekor anjing hanyalah binatang yang tiada akal, ikut telunjuk kepada orang yang memberinya makan, walaupun sekali;

    ii. atas pagar – samada mengambil sikap berdiam diri atau bersuara secara berkias. golongan ini adalah majoriti. golongan ini biasanya ambil tindakan berkecuali dan berfikir yang baik disokong, yang buruk dia mereka selalunya berdiam. golongan ini akan menggunakan kuasanya apabila tiba masanya. dalam situasi sekarang saya yakin 70% dari golongan ini tidak yakin pada Najib berbanding pro Najib sekitar 30% saja;

    iii. anti Najib – golongan ini adalah golongan yang minoriti dalam UMNO. biasanya golongan ini adalah seorang yang berani dan tegas dalam keputusannya. dia lebih berjaya dalam politik jika mampu melepasi aras selamat dengan menempatkan diri sebagai orang penting dalam umno;

    Saya percaya dalam UMNO, golongan ii adalah majoriti iaitu sekitar 70%, golongan i sebanyak 20% dan iii sebanyak 10%.

    Semua golongan di atas adalah hasil dari pergaulan rambang saya dalam UMNO sekitar 5 tahun kebelakangan ini.

    Sekian Tun.

    Race Equality

    Pelbagai Kaum di Malaysia
    Cara am hanya Kaum Melayu ,India dan Cina

    Kaum Melayu adalah Kamu yg penduduk lebih berbanding kaum Cina & India
    Falsafah Kaum Melayu
    Characteristic orang melayu adalah

    1.Pemalas
    2.Tidak suka meninjau Ilmu
    3.Tidak tahu mengatakan TIDAK , bila TIDAK itu adalah Hurainnya
    4.Suka menyalahkan orang lain dari diri sendiri ,lebih sorak dari buat
    Begitu juga pepimpinan UMNO sekarang
    5.Lebih menadah tangan dari usaha sendiri
    6.Sangat mengharapkan bantuan Kerajaan dan menyalahkan Kerajaan apabila mereka gagal.Kerajaan pun dah sesak pun membantu membabi buta. Punca masalah orang melayu tidak akan terhurai malah terberai ,malah terlungkup ,terlentang
    7.Mengikut budaya asing membabi buta ,ilmunya tidak diambil budaya yr tak senonoh ditiru
    8.Bersifat iri hati lebih pada memerangsangkan mereka untuk berjaya
    Dan banyak banyak lagi

    Akhir kata apa huraian nya ? Bagaimana nak tolong orang Melayu ?
    Kasi mereka susah itulah jawapan nya

    Orang Melayu mesti belajar BERDIKARI
    Yang jadi masalah orang Melayu yg tidak sudah hingga kini
    Adalah sifat Kerajaan yg menolong orang Melayu secara MEMBABI BUTA
    Maka ia sama sekali tidak membantu malah merosakan lagi
    Terkini sudah ada jawapan dan kenyataannya

    Begitu juga Kepimpinan Melayu sekarang
    Mereka hanya menang sorak kerana ramai bukan kerana Quality
    Najib kelihatan tidak cekap juga kelihatan First Lady Boros
    Jadi timbullah Andaian yg yidak sihat

    Begitu juga Kerajaan MEMBABI BUTA menolong orang Melayu
    Juga dengan Kepimpinan sekarang
    Dah Kenalah si Penyagak jumpa si Penyamun
    Hujar Perwira Lagenda Arwahyarham P.Ramlee

    Lihat saja di Johor
    Ramai kaum Cina ,mahupun kaum India lebih dari kaum Melayu
    Yg bertyungkus lumus berkerja di seberang Singapura
    Kaum Cina dan Indialah yg sudah banyak membeli rumah ,Tanah di Johor
    Orang Melayu hanya banyak mengadai Tanah mereka, itu pun Tanah Pusaka

    Perpatah si Botak
    Harimau mati tinggalkan Belang
    Orang Putih mati tinggalkan nama
    Cina mati tinggalkan Harta
    Melayu mati hanya tinggal Berangan

    Aneh mati tinggalkan Aci

    When the going gets tough, the tough gets going!

    Its action time dearest Tun and please tell us what to do now because we can’t be writing and commenting while they (Najib and the gang) have done more than that to secure their sits until the next GE 14.

    Pendekatan mendiang LKY berjumpa Arwah Nik Aziz ,Lim Guan ENG DAN JUGA Pembangkang Kerajaan Malaysia sudah membuktikan sesuatu

    Saya berpendapaat Tun seharusnya jika Tun masih Bertenaga
    Suara Tun di Perlukan Dunia Islam sekarang
    Suara Tun di perlukan untuk menyatupadukan umat Islam sekarang terutama di Timur Tengah
    Suara Tun mesti kedengaran di Syria ,Iraq ,Afaganistan di Timur Tengah
    Supaya mereka Hentikan pembunuhan sesama sendiri
    Hentikan peperangan ISIS , Taliban ,Sunni ,Shiaah daan pelbagai kelompok
    Mungkin Tun perlu menziarah ke Timur Tengan di Tanah yg penuh Kekeliruan
    Memberi Amanat di Media sana Bertujuan Hentikan Sengketa mereka
    Dan maju kehadapan

    Ini hanya pandangan atau satu Ikhtiar bagi Kejayaan Kita bersama
    Hujungnya Allah yg menentukan
    Saya sedia mendampingi Tun walau jadi tukang pikul untuk tujuan tersebut
    Melawan api sama api bukan Huraiannya
    Ini Jihad saya

    Salam YAB dan Yang DiKasihi Tun,

    Maaf Tun..melencong dari tajuk..

    ///
    KUALA LUMPUR: Umno will postpone its elections scheduled next year by 18 months.

    Party president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said this was to allow the party to concentrate on serving the people, strengthening unity and prepare for the 14th general election.

    “This decision is in accordance with the party constitution and not something unusual.

    “Previous party presidents Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had also made similar decisions and given the same reason when postponing the party elections,” he said after chairing Umno supreme council meeting.

    The last party elections were held in 2013.

    ///

    Alahai PM Najib!

    Nampaknya UMNO/BN akan tumbang pada PRU-14 disebabkan ada Presiden yang tidak sedar diri dan tidak mahu menerima hakikat yang beliau ditolak oleh majoriti rakyat. Selfish!

    DSN akan menempa sejarah sebagai bekas PM pertama yang dibicara dan dihukum kerana penyelewengan2 yang beliau lakukan sebagai PM jika tumbang pada PRU-14.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    *** Semoga Allah S.W.T. sentiasa melindungi Tun sekeluarga. ***

    Salam, Tun

    Seringkali, umum mengaitkan manusia dgn anjing atas sebab2 apabila sesuatu perbuatan jijik dan tidak bermoral dilakukan oleh manusia. Oleh yang demikian, saya, berpendapat bahawa opinion seperti itu harus di perbetulkan sedikit, memandangkan anjing mempunyai kesetian dan boleh melindungi tuanya drp bahaya.

    Ungkapan yg amat sesuai pada pendapat saya, terhadap manusia2 yg berperangai jijik dan tidak bermoral adalah lebih sesuai dikaitkan dgn babi drp anjing.

    Saya tidak bermaksud menghina mana2 bangsa dlm bicara saya, ini. Maksud saya, adalah ingin membicarakan perangai2 manusia yg terdapat dalam politik Malaysia pada masa ini. Justeru kita kena ubah presepsi kita terhadap manusia yg perangai seperti anjing kepada babi, itu lebih sesuai.

    Jasa dan kesetiaan anjing kepada manusia bermula drp zaman awal2 Islam, sehingga ada peranan anjing dalam cerita2 perkembangan Islam – mohon perbetulkan kalau saya, salah, Tun.

    Tidak di nafikan bahawa anjing merupakan binatang yg tiada akal seperti binatang2 lain. Tetapi apabila anjing di beri makan sekali sahaja ianya akan mengingati org yg memberi makanan tersebut sampai bila2 dan juga boleh melindungi org yg beri makanan itu drp apa2 bahaya yg boleh menimpanya.

    Pada masa kini agama langit telah di salah tafsir dan dipesong mengikut nafsu manusia yg rakus dan zalim. Manusia zaman skrg kalau tak semua memiliki peradaban dan tingkahlaku yg menjurus kepada perbuatan yg keji dan tidak berperikemanusiaan, terutama sekali drp parti2 politik di Malaysia, khususnya MIC

    Lihat sahaja track record mereka selama ini, banyak sangat perbuatan jenayah seperti, pembunuhan, kecederaan dan ugutan terhadap org2 yg lemah dan tiada kemampuan untuk membela diri. Amat menyedihan lagi, orng2 Melayu yg berkuasa dan mempunyai kebolehan untuk melindungi yg tertindas ini juga tidak mengambil peduli tentang nasib malang mereka di tangan pemimpin2 MIC yg rakus dan zalim.

    Hanya kuasa dan kemarahan Allah sahaja yg saya, mampu doakan bagi melindungi mereka – InsyahAllah

    Saya merayu sangat agar pemimpin dan pentadbir kerajaan, khusunya parti UMNO yg di terajui org2 Melayu tampil dan melindungi kaum india yg amat sangat tertindas akibat perbuatan rakus dan zalim oleh pemimpin2 parti MIC.

    Wahai org2 Melayu yg mempunyai kuasa, bangkitlah untuk melindungi nasib bangsa yg tertindas ini. Ambil tahulah perbuatan pemimpin2 yg tidak layak dipanggil pemimpin. Janganlah kerana undi dan kuasa hanya untuk membentuk kerajaan sahaja org2 Melayu yg berkuasa sanggup menutup mata dan telinga terhadap kerakusan dan kezaliman yang dilakukan pemimpin MIC terhadap kaumnya.

    Bangkitlah Wahai org2 Melayu yg berkuasa sebelum kamu di tidurkan Allah sehingga judgement day.

    Mohon ambil tahu,

    Tun,

    Yes everyone and every living things is looking for well-being. Nature will always be nature. No matter what and how human’s creations or created Systems it will never replace natural happening. Any human creations that are considered “good” will only last a little longer (not forever).
    Yes it brings something UP but it also force or press many thing else DOWN.
    Yes it make life a little better for some but it teaches many to be incompetence and unable to learn how to lost (example football team).
    Yes it helps many in their daily life but it also spoiled many to become ignorant, arrogant and unreasonable.
    Is Natural growth better or artificially induced growth better?
    Everything takes time to grow and some culture take thousands of years to be nurture and mature. The SILK ROAD and all it related business and money take many many years to mature. Even businesses needs willingness to learn, dedication and devotion to succeed. We are only at the beginning point and the signs of abuse, accountability and unbalanced happenings are already showing and appearing.
    YES it can be considered SUCCESSFUL but then we can look again from another angle. Are you really sure?
    The 19% you mentioned is owned by the elite, connected and privileged only, the rest are still paying for them to hold the position for namesake. The system only deploy taking from many pockets and putting into one or two pockets. The many pockets will continue to survive, work harder and continue give to the elite, connected, privileged and monopoly players. SUCCESSFUL?
    Is the system equivalent to Zionist Systems which we condemned? If it is then we have wrong views about Zionist Systems?
    Duality and dualism is better or wiser way to look at things. It will make us to be “grounded” and suffer less “gorilla chest beating syndrome”

    tun…

    racial equality is good in malaysia but not the relationship…interraces relation looks ok outside but very very fragile inside…

    newspaper make it worst ie Utusan and chinese paper whom always instigate ppl….

    tak perlu setuju tapi fikirkan Anjing, Azan dan Lembu…..anjing begitu disukai cina tetapi dibenci dan ditakuti melayu tak kira umur…malah mereka jijik dengan babi yang jadi kegemaran…….

    azan begitu mulia pada orang islam tapi amat menggangu pada orang cina dan perniagaan mereka…

    lembu begitu enak dimakan orang islam tapi begitu suci pada hindu…..

    belum kira kita makan guna tangan mereka jijik dan makan guna 2 jari dari kedua tangan kita pula jijik….

    KITA HANYAA ELAK DAN LARI DARI MASALAH ANJING dan AZAN tanpa selesaikan masalah ini…..

    the way i live in mahathir time is very different…..we respect each other…now no more….chinese alreeady dare to dream to take political power from malay and it is not impossiblle but sure led to chaos….

    the DEB failure start when we ignore grouses from chinese where bangla and indon treated more well than them as malaysian

    “”Orang nak pakai seluar pendek itu dia punya hal lah. Dia nak pergi hospital itu dia punya hal jangan dia bogel sudahlah,” katanya.”

    There must always be a minimum and maximum requirement as guidelines if not strict implementation. Currently the ‘skirt below knees’ is appropriate enough as without that then where can we define the minimum ? If there’s no minimum requirement then what’s to stop my future grandchildren’s generation who’ll decide that wearing panties at public and government places is decent and appropriate enough ?

  46. wajaperak Jun 26,2015 8:56 AM

    Assallammualaikum Tun.
    Saya mohon ruangan.

    Saudara hskamal
    [Mohon intervention Tun, dan org2 Melayu Islam mempamerkan keindahan Islam melalui pertolongan kita, kepada yg tertindas dan hidup dlm tidak ketentuan, akibat drp perbuatan politik, dan memberi harapan baharu agar boleh berjaya dan memiliki kehidupan yg bermakna dan bermaruah]

    Saya ringkaskan begini.
    Kebijaksanaan dan kemahiran ada 2 jenis.
    Satu ‘conventional wisdom’.Satu lagi ‘unconventional wisdom’.
    Bagaimana nak mencapai dan memahami konsep ini?

    Di dalam Al Quran ada 3 contoh di mana Nabi Sulaiman a.s. bertanya
    “Siapakah yang dapat membawa Mahligai Balqis kehadapan ku sebelum dia tiba”?
    Ifrit yang kuat menyatakan “Saya sanggup membawanya sebelum tuan bangkit dari duduk.Seorang yang MENDAPAT ILMU DARI KITAB menyatakan “Saya sanggup membawanya sebelum kerdipan mata yang berikutnya”..

    Di dalam Surah Al Kahfi “Seorang yang mendapat ilmu LANGSUNG DARI KAMI”
    LADUNNA ILMA.

    Dan sudah pasti ilmu yang khusus untuk para MUQQORABIN..

    Persoalan ilmu dan pengamalan tentang kesejahteraan umat bukanlah perkara yang baru.Kaum Nabi Nuh a.s adalah yang pertama mengolok-olokkan ilmu dan peranan Islam terhadap kesjahteraan masyarakat.
    Akibatnya?
    Persoalan yang saudara ajukan bukanlah mudah.
    Tahukah saudara dunia ini di penuhi banyak wali-wali Allah yang apa sahaja permintaan mereka dikabulkan oleh Allah?
    Jadi..mengapa mereka membiarkan sahaja segala ketidakadilan dan kekejaman bermaharajalela di mana-mana?
    Sunnah ini adalah berkaitan

    KETETAPAN PERTAMA DAN KETETAPAN KEDUA.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  47. daeng Jun 26,2015 7:31 AM

    Dear Tun,

    Saya bersetuju dengan pandangan saudara adelheid dan ingin menyambung ulasan berkait dengan “perpaduan nasional”.

    Seperti kenyataan saya sebelum ini berhubung perpaduan nasional di Malaysia, rakyat yang bijak ( kebanyakan rakyat bijak ) sedia maklum bahawa dasar pendidikan awal negara khususnya di peringkat sekolah rendah dari darjah 1 ke tingkatan 5 perlulah seragam. Saya percaya sebab ujudnya sekolah tamil dan cina di negara ini adalah disebabkan desakan politik. Kononnya jika kerajaan BN tidak mengikut kehendak golongan tertentu orang Cina dan India yang mana mahukan sekolah berasaskan bahasa ibunda mereka, kononnya mereka akan menolak kerajaan yang ada. Malangnya hingga kini kerajaan menngikut kehendak golongan ini, sedihnya mereka kian menolak kerajaan yang memerintah. Ini dapat kita lihat keputusan PRU13 lalu yang mana majoriti ( saya anggarkan 80% ) masyarakat Cina dan India tetap menolak BN atau Najib walaupun Najib menyuntik berjuta-juta RM kepada sekolah-sekolah tersebut.

    Sebenarnya saya cukup yakin bahawa mereka ( Cina dan India ) yang berjuang untuk mengekalkan sekolah Cina dan India sedar bahawa perpaduan nasional akan gagal dicapai selagi ujudnya sekolah Cina/Tamil. Mereka ini seolah-olah terpaksa memilih satu samada sekolah berasaskan bahasa ibunda mereka ATAU perpaduan nasional (sekolah kebangsaan kerajaan). Saya ingin bertanya kepada pejuang-pejuang ini, adakah mereka membuat keputusan yang bijak atau sebaliknya? Mereka ini saya anggap lebih bodoh dari cerdik kerana di negara asal moyang mereka seperti Cina dan India mana ada sekolah berasaskan satu-satu bangsa? Mereka ini sebenarnya buat-buat tidak memahami konsep perpaduan nasional dan meletakkan kepentingan bangsa sendiri tetapi no 2 adalah perpaduan nasional.

    Kerajaan seharusnya mengubal dasar / kokurikulum sekolah yang ada dengan mewajibkan semua sekolah rendah dan menengah hanya ada satu jenis sekolah kerajaan ( tukar sekolah Cina/India kepada sekolah kebangsaan ) dan dalam masa yang sama menambah kelas khas untuk belajar bahasa Cina dan India pada sesi tambahan.

    Kebodohan Najib sebelum PRU 13 menyuntik bantuan kewangan berjuta-juta RM kepada sekolah-sekolah Cina dan India kononnya Cina dan India akan memberi sokongan kepada pimpinannya, malangya keputusan PRU 13 memberikan hasil sebaliknya dengan majoriti Cina dan India menolak pimpinan BN yang diketuai oleh Najib. Samada kerajaan Najib perasan atau memang Najib ni seorang yang perasan?

    Sebenarnya apabila ujudnya sekolah Cina atau India, mudahlah cikgu-cikgu yang tidak bertanggungjawab menyerapkan semangat bangsa “kekitaan” dan menyibarkan dakyah-dakyah memburukkan kerajaan BN yang didominasi oleh Melayu dan bumiputra Sabah/Sarawak. Saya percaya bahasa yang digunakan untuk meniupkan semangat tersebut adalah bahasa ibunda dan ianya kurang difahami oleh Melayu memudahkan matlamat golongan tertentu tercapai.

    Oleh itu untuk masa-masa hadapan kerajaan sewajarnya menetapkan pendidikan di negara ini hanya ada satu sekolah kebangsaan dimana bahasa Melayu sahaja adalah bahasa pengantar dan jika pun mahu bahasa Inggeris diajar dalam pelajaran Matematik/Sains diteruskan. Disamping ujudkan kelas tambahan bahasa Cina/Tamil, bukan saja untuk orang Cina dan India tetapi untuk semua pelajar yang berminat mendalami bahasa tersebut sebagai alternatif mendalami bahasa tambahan.

    Sekian Tun.

  51. adelheid Jun 26,2015 1:09 AM

    Dear Tun,

    Saya setuju dengan pendapat saudara Suhainin Suhaibul berkenaan sekolah dan pendidikan berasaskan kaum di negara ini sebenarnya merupakan punca jurang di antara kaum semakin besar malah semakin parah. Sekolah berbeda aliran mengikut kehendak kaum cina dan india di negara ini menyumbangkan kepada sebab menebalnya sifat perkauman yang bencikan orang melayu islam. Saya tidak faham kenapa DSN serta kerajaan BN semakin menatang bagai minyak penuh terutamanya kaum cina dengan memberi sekolah-sekolah cina peruntukan berjuta-juta untuk satu-satu sekolah sedangkan sekolah aliran kebangsaan lain begitu terbiar dengan bangunan lama tak cukup tanah untuk padang sekolah dan sebagainya lagi. Sekolah cina pula bergedung tinggi dengan kelas berpendingin hawa.

    Tun dikasihi, bukanlah saya ini anti orang cina kerana dalam keluarga saya juga ada mengalir darah cina dan perkahwinan campur. Kami membesar juga dalam persekitaran pelbagai kaum malah teman terapat masa sekolah dahulu juga adalah dari bangsa cina. Sedihnya bila teringat pada waktu 80an dahulu orang melayu dan orang cina tidak seperti keadaannya sekarang. Kami seperti adik beradik di sekolah. Tetapi itulah, semakin pendidikan berasaskan kaum ini terus diamalkan, dengan sekolah cina dan tamil terutama di Semenanjung Malaysia, saya ingat semakin jauh jurang dan berbezaan antara kaum. Perasaan saling ketidaksukaan terhadap kaum lain itu semakin kuat. Sebabnya mereka terpisah tidak bercampur seawal sekolah rendah, menengah, mereka tidak memahami antara satu sama lain, langsung membawa kepada kebencian apabila dewasa.

    Tun, saya pernah bekerja dengan syarikat swasta majikan berbangsa cina. Gaji antara pekerja melayu bumiputera dengan pekerja bangsa cina tidak sama walaupun jawatan serupa. Malah pengarah melayu juga mendapat gaji separuh daripada gaji pengarah bangsa cina. Syarikat cina yang menggunakan lesen bumiputera mendapat kontrak-kontrak besar kerajaan. Inilah hakikatnya Tun.

    Tun, saya berbesar hati anak-anak saya sudah berjaya mencapai cita-cita mereka kini di bidang profesional (seorang doktor perubatan seperti Tun, seorang lagi jurutera kimia). Pendidikan orang melayu mesti ditekankan diutamakan supaya orang melayu tidak ketinggalan menangisi nasib sedangkan bangsa cina bangsa india dan lain berjaya anak-anak mereka di bidang yang sukar diceburi orang melayu. Janganlah hendaknya kerajaan ini hanya memberi ‘sedekah’ kepada orang melayu melalui BR1M atau projek Bersamamu TV3 sedangkan orang cina menguasai bidang profesional doktor, lawyer, engineer, serta sudah pun menguasai ekonomi negara.

    Tun dearest, to divert from topic, I hope you realize that up to this point of time our efforts to reveal the truth of DSN’s misappropriation of money, abuse of power and contagious corruption practices which have become systemic, have proved futile. I would like to believe that with DSN’s manipulation of the whole system of administration we the rakyat have become paralyzed. Our immobility gives DSN the mandate to continue ruling this country at his whims and fancies.

    That’s all for now my dearest Tun Dr. Mahathir. Goodnight, selamat bersahur dan berpuasa esok. Take good care now, my prayers with you always.

    Tun

    How appropriate that you raised this important subject, ‘Racial Equality’ at the present time which again compelled me to comment for the third time in succession. Why ? It is the humongous Federal Government and the 100 GLCs debts which are here to stay eg.

    IT IS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WITH THE 100 GLCs and THE RACIAL EQUALITY DIVIDE – a new form of financial sculpture now being chiselled in granite as part of the history of our beloved Malaysia. The final form of this sculpture can only be a huge Stone Age elephant which occupies all the space in the Devan Rakyat.

    Hello, all YBs ! Where are you ?

    We must not forget that the Private Sector was bigger than the Public Sector up to 2003. With the unfettered expansion of the bailed out GLCs and the establishment of new GLCs like the 1MDB, the Public Sector GLCs charged to do business to make money for the Rakyat grew by leaps and bounds. This can only be achieved by the unfettered borrowings by the GLCs to do business to make money for the Rakyat.

    When the Crash of October 2008 occurred, most of the GLCs were still in their cocoons or infancy. But thereafter, without understanding why all the stock and commodities exchanges went up sky high around the World, the GLCs went on a non-stop buying spree around the World on borrowed money.

    If the Federal Government copied the late Dictator Lee Kuan Yew’s creation of his GLCs (with a specific purpose in mind to benefit himself), without due consideration that the Singapore Show was a one-man Show to this day, then, it may now sailing in dangerous waters with a humongous debt of nearly ONE TRILLION RINGGITS on its back.

    We must not forget that the GLCs are manned by Civil Servants with no business experience who are not the owners and without accountability. The person responsible for the latest MARA caper could not be found ! Officially, we are told that these are the members of the GLC team which makes money for the Government and the Rakyat !

    On the assumption that the 100 GLCs borrowed RM 300 Billions from the Malaysian banking system, then the Private Sector has 300 Billions less for investment. This effectively created a drop in the investments by the Bumiputras which in turn would reduce the hard-work by previous Administrations to keep up the level of Bumiputra investments in the interest of Racial Equality.

    In other words, the Federal Governmnet or Public Sector through its 100 GLCs controlled by a few Civil Service individuals absorbed the RM 300 Billions of money from the Private Sector as the banking system is inelastic if properly administered by Bank Negara Malaysia. Illiquidity of the banking system would occur when there is a drop in revenues from exports and other ancillary activities related to the financial system like the Bursa or a downturn in the economy or political and financial instability at home and abroad. Slowly these factors are noticeable day by day concomitantly with a weakening of the Malaysian ringgit. My Bumiputra entrepreneurial friends have confirmed this is what is happening in the general economy.

    From 2004 to 2015, there was no forward planning to deal with unexpected contingencies. The failed MONEY MONEY MONEY policies of the late Dictator Lee Kuan Yew (1959-2015) were adopted wholesale with an ad hoc attitude.

    NO STUDY WAS MADE HOW THE 100 GLCs WITH THEIR HUGE BORROWINGS OF UP TO RM 300 BILLIONS MAY TURN THE CLOCK BACK ON RACIAL EQUALITY SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE WHICH IS NOW 2015 !

    By embarking on this charade with the 100 GLCs and their RM 300 Billions debts by 2015, the Federal Government has effectively put the clock back on ‘Racial Equality’ after all the hard-work and sacrifice on ‘Racial Equallity’ by the four distinguished Prime Ministers up to 2003 !

    This is the Federal Government and its 100 GLCs and the Racial Equality Divide.

    Up to 2003, each and every Government was caring and concerned with the up-lifting and enhancement of the Bumiputras. But from 2003, these good policies were put into reverse by the simple expediency of absorbing all the cash ear-marked for the Private Sector by the Public Sector through the 100 GLCs – a huge loophole for off-Budget spending without any control. The right hand did not see what the left hand was doing and vice-versa.

    The latest example of the unfettered spending by a GLC, the MARA Melbourne properties caper.

    If all the GLCs, 100 of them overspent on long term investments like overseas properties without any safeguard as to their balance sheets, one can only expect the worst to come as no defence against vicissitudes have been prepared.

    One day in the future we may have to work hard again to repair our fame in achieving ‘Racial Equality!’

    The 100 GLCs are now affected by overspending one after another.

    MALAYSIA BOLEH ! MALAYS BOLEH ! MALAYSIANS BOLEH !

    The subject ‘Racial Equality’ is such an important subject not only for us but also for the World that I felt compelled to comment on it again.

    First, with the advent of affordable air travel, thousands of people every year move from country to country. Some of these people eventually will settle down in one country with a population which is alien to the newcomer. Here lies the racial inequality.

    Mistakes were made by the United States and the erstwhile Dictator of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew (1959-2015) in their zeal to equalise the populations. But unfortunately, their policies turned out to be focussed on the majority inhabitants with the exclusion of the minorities. And on top of this, all opportunities were available only to those who qualified meritocratically through academic means. This is a double whammy to make the ascent of the meritocratic ladder even more difficult. The last factor is the capitalistic economic cycle which rises or dips every few years or so leaving the underprivileged to be bewildered at the sudden loss of jobs and income.

    For example, there is a huge slum for Afro-Americans, south of Chicago which a person could only see from the train. And unless a visitor travels around the environs of Chicago by bus, he or she will never know that the Greyhound Line is mainly patronised by Afro-Americans. Not many Afro-Americans travel by air or train.

    Government policies to improve racial equality are best written by the disadvantaged themselves like the NEP.

    Second, the results of a good ‘Racial Equality’ policy are what could be achieved in our beloved Malaysia so far. It is at least a 800 year job from the Swiss example ! I note that Goodwill Councils were established. I dare say there is nothing better than for the Government of the day to fulfil the Malaysian Dream of jobs, affordable housing, good schools and transport systems, low cost of living and affordable holidays etc. Goodwill Councils reflect a Government’s failure in improving Racial Equality by not understanding the groundswell !

    I have noticed for many years that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with Tun Dr Siti Hasmah checked out the Malls in Kuala Lumpur in the evenings. I bumped into them more than once in Sogo, Ampang Park Shopping Complex etc. Needless to say that a Prime Minister has a 24 hour job.

    The success of ‘Racial Equality’ of our beloved Malaysia today maybe attributed to our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s creation of the 3 Million famillies of the Malay Middle Income Group without strife or rancour, which up-lifted the 3 Million famillies of the non-Malay Middle Income Group through the purchases of the goods and services of the latter by the former. This the core of the success of the NEP. This was a World Class act.

    Previous to this in 1970, the Malays had only 2% of the assets of the general economy, the British had 70% of the best and the Chinese had 25% of the third rate assets.

    Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad achieved this quantum leap for the Malays single-handedly. And yet those who benefitted from his hard-working ways did not appreciate their own good fortune. If not for the Tun, these unhappy lot would still be locked in the 2% in 2015 !

    For example, in the barren tiny isle of the Republic of Singapore, the late Dictator (1959-2015) who had the UN economics expert, Dr Alfred Winsemius to advise him from 1961 to 1984 on development, had the task of fashioning the human resources of Singapore. Dr Winsemius advised on the rest of the economic development.

    On the one hand, we observe the glittering achievement of Singapore as advised by Dr Winsemius. On the other, we see the paucity of the Dictator’s thoughts and actions in his screwing down the indigenour population from 100% in 1959 down to 62% in 2010. With just over 3.0 millions indigenous Singaporeans left with 1.2 million foreign workers and 900,000 permanent residents who paid S$ 1.3 millions per family.
    Vide. Singapore Government White Paper on Population. 2011. Dynamic and thriving Singapore has become a failed State.

    It is now known that the successful and the enduring Malaysian society lies with our Free Malaysian Style Democracy and Open Capitalisitc Characteristics with a Malay bias. In comparison the Dictator Lee Kuan Yew’s creation the Godless Ultracommunistic Political and Social System has gone toxic because he was the only person who benefitted in all its aspects !

    Third, a Minister recently said that a weak ringgit is good for exports. It us a cliche. This is only one side of a large coin. The other side of this coin is rising inflation which every democratic government tries to prevent because inflation is bad news affecting all segments of the population, the rich and the poor. There is no discrimination of anything by inflation which through hyperinflation had brought down democratically elected governments in the past without fail like in pre-Hitler’s Germany.

    It is important to examine the causes of inflation in any country. The first place to look for the cause is the performance of any government.

    Why the Swiss has the most expensive money in the World ? An individual has to pay the Swiss Government just to keep the Swiss franc. The reason is that the Swiss Government and the Swiss practise good governance just like the Japanese whose currency is as good as any. The Swiss and the Japanese currencies are not contrived like the Singapore dollar which is subjected in irregular inflows of money in a tiny place with no supporting tangible human or natural resources.

    Fourth, it is not easy to improve, promote and establish Racial Equality.

    Thw Swiss estabished their Confederation over 800 years ago. The population consists of the Germans, the French, the Italians and the Romansch who were Roman Legionnaires. They deserted Rome 2000 years ago and holed up in the High Alps. Even today, these four tribes of people make snide remarks about each other behind their backs.But Switzerland is a success story for us to emulate. But Japan is also another worthwhile case for our beloved Malaysia to follow as Tun suggestion, his ” Look East ” Policy.

    Finally, it is the economic glue or goodies which the Federal Governments before 2003 were able to produce for the populace to have the peace of mind to practise stability, peace and harmony. In the years thereafter 2003, more and more disatisfaction arose on small matters which had been laid to rest or never bothered us in the past, were resurrected to create problems. Why ? There were no goodies to fulfil the Malaysian Dream for all segments of the Malaysian society between 2004 and 2015 !

    By and large, our beloved Malaysia has done quite well in terms of Racial Equality. Thanks to our successive wise Prime Ministers beforer 2003. How ? They did not ape the failed MONEY MONEY MONEY policies of the late Dictator, Lee Kuan Yew. They did their own Malaysian thing. No more. No less. No consultants, party boys or unqualified cartoonists too !

    MALAYSIA BOLEH ! MALAYS BOLEH ! MALAYSIANS BOLEH !

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya kira kita telah capai kata sepakat dalam isu 1MDB ini.

    Seperti saya katakan sebelum sebelum ini perkara yang berkaitan sentiasa berkembang berkenaan diri saya.

    Saya fikir level untuk sedikit masa lagi akan meningkat kepada pengurusan secara praktikal dan bukan lagi setakat menulis idea idea. InsyaAllah jika itu yang ditunjuk arah olehNya.

    Keputusan untuk terjun lebih mendalam adalah keputusan yang agak berat dan menakutkan bagi saya, namun jika itu telah ditakdirkan tanpa kita mencarinya, semoga perjalanan saya dipimpin olehNya.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Maaf lari dari tajuk. Peringatan kepada ketua-ketua UMNO yang terus menyokong Najib. Isu Tun vs isu Najib amat berbeza dan perlu kita fahami. Najib banyak isu yang direkanya sendiri kerana sikap boros berbelanja sedangkan menjana income negara saya takrifkan Najib TERAMAT TIDAK BIJAK. Di bawah saya petik komen dari blog lain dan bersetuju dengan pandangan beliau:

    Ketua-ketua UMNO masih tidak faham atau mereka sudah tidak peduli dengan keadaan parti dan negara.

    Dalam isu Perwaja Steel, bukannya ada kehilangan wang, syarikat itu rugi sebab kaedah pengurusan, kaedah operasi yang tidak menguntungkan pasa masa itu. Tidak ada kejadian besi dibeli dengan harga yang lebih mahal dari harga pasaran dari syarikat tertentu sebagaimana 1MDB membeli stesen janakuasa elektrik dengan harga yang berlipat kali ganda seperti Genting Sanyen, harga sebenar RM 400 juta, tapi 1MDB beli dengan harga RM 2.3 bilion, lepas beli, Genting yang merupakan pemilik Genting Sanyen sebelum ini dengan tidak semena-mena memberikan ‘sumbangan’ sebanyak RM 35 juta kepada Yayasan Rakyat 1 Malaysia yang ada kaitan dengan Najib. Dalam isu Perwaja Steel, tak ada pun kegiatan seperti yang berlaku dalam 1MDB dan urusniaganya sekarang ini.

    Malahan dalam isu imuniti raja-raja, tindakan Tun Dr. Mahathir adalah betul, Tun Dr. Mahathir bertindak atas prinsip keadilan di mana sebelum imuniti raja-raja dihadkan, raja-raja bebas buat apa, tak boleh bawa ke mahkamah, tetapi bila ada had untuk imuniti, raja-raja sendiri tertakluk kepada undang-undang selaras dengan syariat Islam yang tidak membezakan darjat dan pangkat dalan isu undang-undang.

    Isu 1MDB adalah sangat berlainan dengan isu yang berlaku di zaman Tun Dr. Mahathir, di zaman Tun Dr. Mahathir, berlaku kerugian kepada syarikat negara, berlaku kerugian dalam urusniag kerajaan, tetapi kerugian itu diketahui sebabnya, bukannya suka-suka bagi rugi, sebabnya untuk kepentingan negara seperti urusniaga di Pasaran Timah London, tujuan kerajaan adalah untuk menyelamatkan para pelombong kecil, para pekerja lombong yang begitu terjejas akibat kejatuhan harga timah dengan melampau, wang yang rugi itu tidak diselewengkan ke mana-mana pun.

    Jadi harapnya ketua-ketua bahagian UMNO sedar dah faham dengan apa yang sebenarnya berlaku, jangan menjadi penyokong membawa rebah kepada parti pula.

    Jika ketua-ketua UMNO itu masih berdegil nak menyelindungkan kesalahan Najib yang melakukan penyelewengan itu, teruskan, ingatlah rakyat akan ingat akan muka ketua-ketua bahagian UMNO itu terutama yang berstatus menteri besar, menteri-menteri, timbalan menteri, exco, muka-muka inilah yang akan disenarai hitamkan oleh pengundi dalam PRU 14 jika mereka dipilih sebagai calon, kerana bersekongkol melingkupkan negara, buat apa pilih rakan subahat penyamun sebagai wakil rakyat, lebih baik tak payah ada wakil rakyat pun tak apa dari pilih rakan subahat penyamun sebagai wakil rakyat.

    Sekian.

    Salam YAB dan Yang DiKasihi Tun,

    1. Pelaksanaan DEB (NEP) amat cemerlang pada zaman pentadbiran Tun. Pada masa tersebut ramai anak2 kampong yang asalnya dari keluarga penoreh getah, petani, pesawah, pekerja kampong, etc. telah berjaya mendapat pendidikan peringkat ijazah/tertinggi di dalam dan luar negara; membawa kepada peningkatan taraf hidup yang amat ketara di kalangan rakyat amnya.

    2. Hubungan antara kaum juga berada pada tahap yang terbaik dalam sejarah pada zaman Tun M PM Malaysia. Tun tidak perlu ada slogan ’1Malaysia / Malaysian Malaysia’ untuk memupuk rasa muhibah & saling menghormati di kalangan semua kaum. Rakyat Malaysia yang berada di luar negara pada zaman Tun amat bangga menjadi rakyat Malaysia. Malahan, pada Feb 2015 yang lalu saya bersembang dengan seorang lelaki dari Pakistan di Barcelona, dan beliau ’sayangkan’ Malaysia (he said, ’I love Malaysia’; pelik bukan kerana beliau bukan rakyat Malaysia) walaupun beliau tidak pernah datang ke Malaysia. Beliau menyanjungi Dr. Mahathir.

    3. Keadaan sekarang sudah jauh berbeza. Slogan ’1Malaysia’ gagal untuk menyambung legasi Tun yang berjaya menyatukan rakyat Malaysia dari pelbagai kaum. Perasaan saling menghormati antara kaum semakin terhakis dan berada pada tahap membimbangkan di bawah PM-6. Ini kerana PM sekarang lemah dan sentiasa tunduk kepada ugutan/desakan dari kem Pembangkang, dan hasilnya PM yang juga Presiden UMNO ternampak seolah-olah melaksanakan agenda pihak Pembangkang yang sememangnya tidak suka Malaysia berada dalam keadaan harmoni dan stabil.

    4. PM Najib tidak ada jati diri dan fokusnya hanya untuk mempopularkan diri sendiri (’selfish’), tetapi semakin hari semakin membuat rakyat meluat teramat sangat melihat gelagat beliau dan koncu2 beliau.

    5. Tun M pula, walaupun amat tegas semasa menjadi PM, amat disayangi oleh rakyat kebanyakan kerana beliau sentiasa MENDAHULUKAN RAKYAT dalam apa jua tindakan beliau, dan tidak perlu ada slogan ’rakyat didahulukan…’ seperti PM sekarang yang beretorik semata-mata, tapi hampeh.

    6. Saya setuju dengan pendapat yang mengatakan, Tun M walaupun tiada pertalian darah dengan kebanyakan kita, beliau sudah kita anggap sebagai ’ayah’ sendiri, dan jika ada yang memburuk-burukkan Tun M, kita yang akan terasa terlebih sedih berbanding Tun sendiri. Tun akan sentiasa disayangi oleh rakyat yang tahu mengenang budi Tun yang tidak terhitung banyaknya. ’Selamat Hari Bapa’ kepada Tun tersayang.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    *** Semoga Allah S.W.T. sentiasa melindungi Tun sekeluarga. ***

    Salam, Tun

    Izikan saya bicara perkara yg hampir sama sebelum ini. Ianya sangat dekat dgn hati saya, maka saya, memohon dan merayu kepada Tun, dan semua orang2 Melayu yg memiliki kuasa politik dan kerajaan segera membantu membebaskan kaum india yg miskin, teramat miskin dan umum drp cengkaman politik dan jenayah oleh pemimpin2 MIC yang sedang menerajui parti tersebut.

    Hanya melalui usaha secara langsung drp orang2 Melayu yg memegang kuasa politik dan kerajaan dpt melindungi kaum minoriti ini, drp pemimpin2 yang rakus dan zalim. Saya sangat2 berharap orang melayu yg pegang kuasa boleh menghalang mana2 parti politik dlm kerajaan dan pembangkang melakukan pemilihan dan perlantikan individu2 yg di dapati terlibat banyak skandal dan perbuatan tidak berperikemanusian, sehingga boleh melanggar undang2 negara dan terlepas, kemana-mana jawatan yang melibatkan kebajikan dan kehidupan rakyat – saya merayu dan memohon.

    Di bulan puasa ini, saya meminta org2 Islam Melayu yg memiliki kuasa untuk bangkit bukan sahaja untuk Islam, tetapi juga bagi kaum india yg amat malang kehidupan mereka dibawah cengkaman politik.

    Semasa saya beragama hindu, saya, pernah bertanya satu soalan kepada kawan saya, mengenai daging korban – Mengikut ajaran Islam yang di fahamkan daging korban hanya boleh di makan org2 beragama Islam sahaja. Lalu saya, bertanya pada kawan saya, bagaimana jikalau pada zaman awal2 Islam mahupun masa kini dimana terdapat juga agama2 lain yg tidak faham fakta ini, khususnya orang2 miskin dtg inginkan daging korban untuk dibawa balik, di masak dan makan bersama keluarga.

    Menurut kawan saya, bahawa daging korban tetap di larang untuk di makan org2 bukan Islam. Tetapi indahnya apabila saya, bertanyakan bagaimana Islam boleh membenarkan perbuatan seperti ini, terhadap manusia miskin dan kelaparan dari agama lain menikmati makanan pemberian Allah kepada manusia.

    Jawapan beliau sangat mudah dan indah sehingga meletakkan Islam di tempat yg tinggi dan termulia. Beliau berkata apabila terdapat org2 drp agama lain dtg dgn harapan untuk mendapatkan sesuatu, maka haruslah bagi org2 Islam yg menjalankan ibadah tersebut harus pada kemudian masa menyediakan daging sedekah untuk di agih kepada org2 yg bukan beragama Islam. Inilah Islam yg sebenar dan memenuhi tuntutan Illahi.

    Keindahan ilmu yg saya, pelajari drp kawan saya, ini, dan lain2 tentang Islam telah dan sedang membawa saya, dlm satu proses perjalanan tentang bagaimananya kehidupan yg harus diamal sebagai seorang beragama Islam.

    Oleh yang demikian, saya, sekali lagi dlm perjalanan saya, ini…stop-over kat blog Tun, merayu dan memohon pada Tun, dan semua org2 melayu yg memegang kuasa agar menghulurkan tangan kita, dan memberi kasih sayang kita, bukan hanya kepada ummat kita, tetapi juga kepada manusia2 yg tertindas dan malang drp agama2 lain, khususnya kaum india hindu, drp pemimpin2 yg rakus dan zalim.

    Mohon intervention Tun, dan org2 Melayu Islam mempamerkan keindahan Islam melalui pertolongan kita, kepada yg tertindas dan hidup dlm tidak ketentuan, akibat drp perbuatan politik, dan memberi harapan baharu agar boleh berjaya dan memiliki kehidupan yg bermakna dan bermaruah.

    Thank you very very much, Tun, for giving me this opportunity to express my sincere thoughts on your blog.

    Salam Sahur, Tun, God bless all

    Assalamualaikum Tun..

    Selamat berpuasa pada semua muslimin muslimat.Memandangkan kita berbicara tentang isu perpaduan dan perkauman,ingin saya berbicara tentang negara kita sahaja.I can write this in good English but since Bm is our national language,allow me to do it in BM.

    Saya bersetuju dgn Tun bahawa negara kita aman dengan berbagai bangsa sebagai rakyatnya tetapi apakah faktor sebenar wujudnya keamanan itu? Bagi saya,pihak pemerintah yang dari dulunya dari parti BN,terutamanya UMNO,adalah “the last people to take any credit for this harmony”.Keamanan ini wujud disebabkan rakyat Malaysia sendiri yang berakal dan hidup cara bertamadun.Pihak pemerintah cuma cuba melaga lagakan kami dengan dasar2 perkaumannya seperti dasar bodoh Satu Malaysia dari idea bodoh satu PM yang hanya tahu bercakap,itupun tak pandai bercakap.Siapakah harus kami berterimakasih untuk PM seperti ini kalau bukan Tun sendiri yang rekomen gila supaya dia ambil alih tempat Badawi?

    Saya ingin memberi beberapa cadangan agar keharmonian kita berkekalan.

    1) Berhenti dari membenarkan PM anak beranak menerajui negara.
    Kalau Tun perasan,anak2 bekas PM atau menteri juga berkecimpung dalam politik negara ini.Sebagai contoh,anak Tun sendiri, Najib anak Tun Razak,Hishamudin anak Tun Hussein.Begitu juga pembangkang,Lim Guan Eng anak Lim Kit Siang,Nurul Izzah anak Anwar,Gobind Deo anak Karpal Singh dan berbagai2 lagi.Ini bukan pemerintahan Di Raja sampai anak kena teruskan legacy bapanya.Itu satu sebabnya Tun terpedaya yang anak Tun Razak akan baik seperti ayahnya yang berkorban untuk negara ini.Anaknya?Menghancurkan negara,ugama dan rakyatnya.Siapa mangsanya?Kami rakyat!!Setiap PM harus diberi mandat satu ke dua penggal,kemudian diganti orang lain.Negara kita banyak bijak pandai,bukan seorang dua ini saja.

    2)Kalau benar keharmonian itu penting dan timbul dasar bodoh Satu Malaysia,kenapa membeza bezakan bangsa bumiputera dan bukan bumiputera?Saya rasa,maksud bumiputra adalah yang beranak dalam negara ini,jadi tidakkah seharusnya di wujudkan satu bangsa sahaja iaitu bangsa Malaysia?Samaada kita Melayu,Cina,India,Singh ,Asli atau apa saja,kenapa kami tidak disatukan dengan satu bangsa iaitu Bangsa Malaysia??Sedangkan Allah tidak beza membezakan kita, kenapa pemerintah membeza bezakan satu bangsa ke bangsa lain? Kenapa tidak diatas kad pengenalan kami ditulis kaum itu sebagai keturunan tetapi bangsa kami sebagai bangsa Malaysia ? Tidakkah Tun rasa kami rakyat akan lebih bersatu padu dan sayang menyayangi satu sama lain dengan cara ini?Tidakkah dengan memberi keutamaan pada satu kaum sahaja, pemerintah kita sama dengan USA yang Tun sebut2,dimana mereka meletakkan kaum kulit hitam ditempat kedua??Apa bezanya??

    Mungkin orang2 Melayu akan marah saya menulis seperti ini,tetapi saya juga Melayu.Kita tak seharusnya terpedaya dengan propaganda pemerintah bahawa orang Melayu mempunyai keistimewaan di negara ini.Tanya pada diri sendiri,apakah keistimewaan yang anda sendiri dapat sebagai Melayu?Nisbah kemiskinan Melayu sejak dasar Malaysia pertama sehingga kini tidak berubah,malah lebih buruk lagi..Persoalannya,manakah semua peruntukkan untuk memajukan bangsa Melayu pergi kalau hidup kaum kita lebih melarat dari masa ke semasa??Boleh Tun sebagai bekas PM selama 25 tahun jawapkan??Saya tak rasa Tun akan
    jawappun!!
    Saya rasa baik saya berhenti disini buat masa ini.I am sorry if this article has offended anyone but the truth does hurt.Semua ini untuk kebaikkan bersama.Saya minta maaf dari ayahanda Tun jika saya terkasar bahasa. Tun adalah PM terbaik dari semua PM, lebih2 lagi yang bodoh sombong macam DSN.Saya benar2 berharap akan ada pemimpin seperti Tun yang memimpin rakyat kearah kemajuan berkekalan..Amin. Wassalam.

    AsSalam Tun yg dikasihi serta Salam Ramadhan kepada sahabat2 sekalian.

    Saya orang kampung biasa2 jer. Tak berapa mahir menaip atau memberi komen. Mohon maaf atas kesilapan sekiranya ada.

    Beribu komen telah dibaca. Ada yg bersetuju dgn tun dan ada yg menentang (ditaja). Dlm ramai2 cerdik pandai dalam ni, x jumpa lagi cadangan bernas utk Malaysia ke arah 2050 mcm yg tun pernah buat menuju 2020. Why stop at 2020? Why we let those jokers gang raped our country? Why dont we prepare for next 30years after 2020? Bukankah kita patut sediakan masadepan utk anakcucucicit kita mcm yg tun dah buat. Anyone?? If none has, i cud share one via a spitball lab of YKP (if allowed) lead by my beloved tun. I m just another rakyat marhaen yg dah jelak dan muak dgn kebobrokan pemimpin ‘berjiwa kacau’ yang meletakkan ‘dunia beserta isi-isinya’ didepan mata kemudian ke poket sendiri. Berasa sangat sedih pada kemungkinan masadepan yang ‘rosak’ untuk anakcucu kita. Harapnya 2M + Grand Master M dapat mengekang nafsu buas Master 1M dan konco2nya.

    Happy Belated Fathers Day to Tun and to All My Fellow Fathers Friend

  63. faridina Jun 25,2015 12:52 AM

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    Saya dapat selami perasaan Tun apabila majalah Foreign Affairs terbitan Amerika akhirnya melapurkan sesuatu yang betul berhubung negara tercinta Malaysia khususnya kejayaan Dasar Ekonomi Baru bagi mengimbangi jurang kekayaan antara kaum Bumiputera dengan kaum Cina.

    Walaupun pada mulanya Tun jangkakan laporan pasti berat sebelah dan tidak akan memihak pada Malaysia apatah lagi ia bukannya majalah kegemaran Tun namun akhirnya mereka akur untuk berkata benar dan sebagai pemimpin yang terlibat secara langsung bertungkus lumus menjayakan DEB ini maka saya percaya sepanjang penerbangan tersebut Tun pasti tersenyum penuh kepuasan.

    Kredit harus diberikan sepenuhnya pada ayahanda Tun yang telah berjaya melakarkan keputusan yang baik berdasarkan kenaikan dari 2% hingga 19% kekayaan ekonomi kaum bumiputera terbaik setakat ini di seantero negara membangun.

    Zaman Tun juga telah berjaya melahirkan ramai golongan bumiputera kelas pertengahan dan pertengahan atas melalui dasar pendidikan yang agresif dan seingat saya yang belajar di salah sebuah sekolah asrama penuh dari 33 orang classmate saya 28 orang telah menyambung pelajaran ke luar negara. Itu baru satu kelas dari dua kelas (MCE last batch) dari sebuah sekolah asrama penuh sahaja. Kami terhutang budi padamu ayahanda Tun dan sesungguhnya kejayaan akademik telah merubah kekuatan ekonomi anak bangsa Melayu.

    Kemudian setelah kegawatan ekomoni tahun 1986 pula Tun telah mencabar graduan2 menceburi bidang perniagaan dan tidak bergantung harap pada pekerjaan di sektor awam sahaja. Pelbagai program telah disediakan bagi menyiapkan graduan menempuhi dunia perniagaan dan menguatkan jati diri agar boleh bersaing dengan bangsa2 lain.

    Lantas kami adalah produk2 Tun dan kini mempunyai kekuatan untuk bersaing dalam apa jua cuaca ekonomi dan mempunyai hala tuju menggapai kejayaan ekonomi atas acuan Tun.

    Sebagai menzahirkan terima kasih dan rasa terhutang budi pada pimpinan Tun maka kami adalah ‘the silent majority’ yang sentiasa melaksanakan tanggungjawab memangkah Barisan Nasional dan sayangkan parti keramat UMNO walaupun Tun sebenarnya kami tidak berparti. Golongan seperti kami tidak di alu-alukan dalam parti keramat tapi tidak mengapa kerana sebagai golongan professional dan orang berniaga kami tidak cenderung berpolitik. Kami cuma dambakan cuaca politik yang stabil macam zaman Tun dan pemerintah memerintah dan bukan tidur atau berangan nak berniaga. Dan orang berniaga macam kami faham tentang ketirisan dan ketelusan agar peluang perniagaan dapat berkembang dengan baik.

    Sesunguhnya kepada para pemimpin UMNO bahagian yang saya percaya adalah di kalangan pengikut senyap blog ayahanda Tun, kepada tuan2 yang budiman harapan kami sandarkan untuk mencorakkan cuaca politik yang lebih telus dan tiris seperti di zaman Tun dan menolak kemungkaran yang saya rasa tuan2 pun sebenarnya mula mengetahui dengan terperinci dari Tun.

    Lihatlah kami orang luar pun sayangkan parti anda kerana terbukti hanya UMNO sahaja yang boleh merubah persepsi majalah luar negara pro barat seperti the ‘Foreign Affairs’.

    Salam ramadhan buat semua pembaca dan semoga di bulan yang mulia ini kita sama2 mendapat hidayah dan petunjuk dari Yang Maha Esa.. Amin.

    Wasalam Tun Dr Mahathir dan Tun Siti Hasmah.

    p/s – Di lain kesempatan teringin saya bercerita tentang sindrom Anakku Sazali versi Faridina’s.

  64. mubarakchan Jun 24,2015 11:19 PM

    Tun

    It is timely that this question of Racial Equality has been brought up for discussion amongst our distinguished Bloggers.

    It is also important that it is time all Malaysians understand we have a viable and tested Democratic System on par with anything that exists in the West. And our Democratic System is the Free Malaysian Style Democracy and Open Capitalistic Characteristics with a Malay bias which is diametrically opposed to the late Dictator’s Lee Kuan Yew (1959-2015) created Godless Ultra Communistic Political and Social System imposed on the citizens by his Apparatchiks aka Meritocrats. This System is also known as the Singapore Model or authoritarian capitalism or benign dictatorship (no such thing) or rich Cuba without the havanas but the bananas.

    Our Political System is manned by elected digits and led by a democratically elected leader who carries the mandate of leadership in the general interests of the Rakyat. He has the duty and responsibility to perform as expected to the wishes of the Rakyat. Our Prime Minister the Honourable Dato Seri Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak is no Dictator.

    But the late Dictator Lee Kuan Yew (1959-2015) was a Dictator. Not only that he was an elected member of Parliement to the end. He was in the Singapore Government Cabinet until 2011 with a Ministerial title invented by himself.

    Therein the above mentioned facts lies the stark difference between the political Systems of Malaysia and Singapore.

    With this basic information in mind, I refer to ‘qwerky’ who accused the Prime Minister of the day of being biased and the cause of the problems with us today. I dare say with all due respect this is a very superficial allegation from someone who has a very shallow understanding of the complex and diverse human and environmental problems which have beset our beloved Malaysia not only today but from the distant past.

    First, we have the Constitution of Malaysia which governs generally what made up the body politic of a country named as Malaysia.

    Second, we have a multitude of communal parties which are supposedly formed to represent all the diverse population in the land.

    Third, we expect the heads of all these communal parties to represent there own community first and the country at large with the other communities second.

    Fourth, the largest communal party provides the Prime Minister.

    From the above facts, it is as clear as crystal that if a communal party like the MCA with dysfunctional leaders from 1957 to 2003 who cared only to become multi-billionaires on retirement after finding that politics were a cushy job, how can we blame the Prime Minister when he had ZERO input from any MCA leader ?

    The Prime Minister being the leader of the United Malays National Organisation naturally has the Malays interests as heart. What can our Prime Ministers do when there was never any cogent inputs to him to resolve vital political questions of the day like the betterment of Sino-Malay relationships or the Chinese Vernacular Schools. I do not remember any effort being made by the MCA in this two important areas. But I do remember was that each MCA leader retired mighty rich up to 2003. Was it business or politics ?

    Coming to the subject of Racial Equality, it is often forgotten that the different races of Humankind are entirely different from each other in all respects. It is the duty and responsibility of the political leadership to find common ground between the different races that we can progress, develop and move forward.

    Take the case of the late Dictator’s (1959-2015) barren tiny isle of Singapore.

    I owned a factory in Jurong in the late 1960s which had a workforce comprised entirely of Malays. I also noticed that the Singapore Government was very keen to provide full employment to the Singaporean Malays. But the Dictator did not see the wood from the trees because he formulated all his policies based on the Chinese majority of 70% of the population. And he made his policies worse and biased towards the Malays because he thought the Malays were like the Chinese and the Chinese like the Malays by topping the edifice with nothing worse than MERITOCRACY. He further hectored about the superiority of Oxbridge and the Ivy League universities. To me, this MERITOCRACY as practised by Singapore until 2013 was the harbinger for all the failed policies of the Dictator (1959-2015). The norm should be used in all his failed policies meaning care and safeguards should have been applied to the average Singaporean and not that 0.01% of the Singaporean elites.

    Hence, Singapore’s sustainability and viability as a State failed. Then, he resorted to 2 casinos and the poisoned chalice TPPA. As Prime Minister Curtin said, ‘ Two wongs do not make a right.’

    Malaysia is a beautiful land with beautiful people.

    If you know how to govern it like the great Tunku, the redoubtable Tun Abdul Razak, the strong Tun Hussein Onn and the Great Statesman of the World, our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, it is quite straightforward and easy. If not, governance would be like a 8 headed serpent, there will be no end of mental wrestling with the demons.

    As led by our bigger than life Prime Ministers from 1957 to 2003, we marched towards solid development and fellow camaraderie with confidence and no doubts in our minds. Why ? These formidable Prime Ministers were aware that they stood at the apex of a power pyramid which base was formed by us the Rakyat. What did these redoubtable Prime Ministers do under the circumstances ? Each of them provided the goodies which flowed with regularity down to the Rakyat at the bottom of the pyramid.

    This was the SECRET THAT HELD OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TOGETHER UNTIL 2003 !

    Thereafter, all of us, intelligent, polite and courteous Malaysians not only saw the goodies defied gravity but the sides of the power pyramid was as dry as the Sahara desert – 2004 to 2015. What was missing ?

    The Malaysian Dream of jobs, affordable housing, good education for the children, good transportation, low cost of living and the potential to earn more and do better etc. We had all these from 1957 to 2003 ! This was the nub of the comment by the magazine ‘Foreign Affairs.’

    To quote, the Tun’s essay of Racial Equality, with pointer from the American Journal, ‘Foreign Affairs’ thus

    9. India and South Africa have also tried affirmative actions. But their results are not as good as in Malaysia
    10.It would seem that Malaysia has done a better job of building a more equitable multi-racial society than most multi-racial countries including the United States. The policy fo equality of treatment i.e. meritocracy has not yielded tangible results.
    11.The magazine Foreign Affairs seems to admit that Malaysia affirmative action has merit, like the reversal of the opinion on Malaysia’s foreign exchange rate policy now seem to be a reversal of condemnation of our affirmative action,at least by Foreign Affairs magazine.

    The Americans again based their Racial Equality policies on a single race in the United States which is the Caucasians like the Dictatro (1959-2015) who based his failed policies on the 70% Chinese population in Singapore.

    Both countries did not take the mean or the average person of each community into the finer details of their policies.

    THIS IS WHERE THE SUCCESS OF MALAYSIA’S AFFIRMATIVE POLICY CAME ABOUT BECAUSE THE VERY PERSONS WHO WERE DISADVANTAGED BY COLONIALISM WROTE THE NEP TOGETHER WITH THE CONSENSUS OF THE NON-MALAYS. What is better than this.

    Right up to 2003, our distinguished and humble Prime Ministers who were hard-working and knew the meaning of the hallowed word, ‘sacrifice.’, never forgot their duties and responsibilities within the meaning of the Constitution of Malaysia with the NEP which made it work under the Rule of the Laws. They provided the firm and fair leaderships.

    Many unsung heroes and heroines also contributed in all spheres of the Malaysian environment through their sacrifice. This was the main contributor to the success of the NEP or Malaysia’s Affirmative Policy for all.

    The whole political and socio-economic structure of our beloved Malaysia could be the template for many countries with racial conflicts including Palestine with much modifications !

    I believe one of our Prime Ministers was a secretary to the NOC which gave birth to the NEP !

    Finally, for those who did not notice, the Republic of Singapore scrapped its MERITOCRACY POLICY in 2013 through the announcements by two Senior Ministers that in future, applicants for jobs and promotions would be considered not only on their academic merits but also on their hidden talents. Meritocracy is of no merit in our beloved Malaysia as our needs are different in all spheres of human endeavour. We do our own thing.

    RACIAL EQUALITY DEPENDS ON THE COUNTRY’S LEADERSHIP WHO MUST HAVE THE FOLLOWING 3 GOLDEN ATTRIBUTES, then success is assured :-

    1 COMMONSENSE

    2. THE ABILITY TO THINK OUT OF THE BOX.

    3. COMPASSION.

    MALAYSIA BOLEH ! MALAYS BOLEH ! MALAYSIANS BOLEH !

    Assalamualaikum Tun and fellow commentators,

    In this holy month of Ramadhan, I would like to wish everyone “Selamat Menjalankan Ibadah di Bulan Ramadhan”. Indeed Ramadhan is a special month. It is the one month where the pahala for each good deeds or ibadah is increased exponentially. It is in Ramadhan, where there is night of Lailatul Qadar, where the night is a better than a thousand months. The sahabat of the prophet loves the coming of the Ramadhan.

    Although I have been writing in this blog since it began, I usually tone down a bit during the month of Ramadhan. However, that does not mean I will not write. Indeed, as Muslims we are encouraged that there should be a group amongst us that “menyeru ke arah kebaikan, dan mencegah kemungkaran” because that group is one that shall be successful. That is Allah’s promise.

    I do hope Tun will continue with this struggle to help the Rakyat. It is a form of ibadah. I have seen many new comentators, and they too have ideas and opinions that are supportive of Tun’s struggle.

    The 1MDB issue continue to bring in new developments even during the the month of Ramadhan, with no end in sight. The latest being the purchase of power plants by TNB, and the capture of an informant who once work with Petro Saudi in Thailand.

    I have no problem with TNB purchasing the power plants as long as it benefits TNB and their stakeholders which includes the rakyat, and it is not a bailout. If indeed the purchase is beneficial, as told by the powers that be, then why is it TNB share prices continue to fall? Shouldn’t TNB prices go up the ceiling if it is beneficial? Why are investor’s selling TNB shares instead of buying them? What does the investors know that we don’t know? This is contradictory.

    With regard to the capture of the informant, he is suspected of blackmailing. Correct me if I’m wrong, but how blackmailing usually works is when someone have truthful information that can be used against another person. If a person made up the information, then blackmailing will not work, since no one would believe him.

    The 1MDB issue continue to bring in new surprises.

    Ukuran Kejayaan adala hak masing masing
    Tidak bermakna Bangunan mencakar Langit adalah Kejayaan
    Malah dalam Islam Bangunan yg mencakar Langgit
    Itulah pertanda Kemusnahan , pertanda Khiamat

    Kaum Melayu adalah kaum yg ambil riggan
    Begitu juga Pemimpim Melayu yg suka mengalah
    Seperti setiap Perundingan Perniagaan Singapura Malaysia
    Kelihatan setiap Rundingan yg di persetujui
    Malaysia selalu di per Budak Budakan

    Haruskah orang Melayu berubah sikap
    Dari Tak pa Lah , Kasihan atau
    Biar orang buat kita jangan kita buat orang…salah satu perpatah melayu yg tidak bolih pakai di zaman kini
    Kita jangan buat orang , orang jang buat kita
    Itu perpatah saya

    Salam Tun & Selamat menjalankan ibadah puasa,

    DEB adalah satu dasar yang amat baik ,kalau dilaksanakan mengikut garispanduan yang telah dirancang dan ditetapkan.
    Malang sekali ,Melayu-Melayu yang diamanahkan untuk melaksanakanya adalah tediri dari Melayu-Melayu ‘kayu ulu kapak’ jauh sekali dari semangat ke Melayuanya.

    Adalah menjadi kekechewaan dan kegagalan yang amat nyata ,setelah sekian lama dilaksanakan sehinga kini masih kabur pencapaianya .

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    I read this article couple of month back in Thai Embassy. This article by Graham K. Brown and Arnim Langer somehow acknowledge Malaysia as a good example for a country practising AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. I bet Tun must be surprised by this article since it came from a US magazine of a high stature.

    We forever heard of RACIAL DISCRIMINATION and RACIAL INEQUALITY in this country being cried by some politician.

    Now we know that there is such a term called POSITIVE DISCRIMINATION!

    The article is now available online:
    https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/2015-03-01/does-affirmative-action-work

  74. ismadi Jun 24,2015 3:04 PM

    As Salam Tun,

    Nampak ada pembaharuan. 2 versi. Satu bahasa Malaysia dan keduanya Bahasa Inggeris. Kemudian selepas ini ada pula manusia melayu akan bertanya dengan Tun, kenapa Bahasa Inggeris didahulukan? Letakkan lah Bahasa Melayu di atas kemudian barulah Bahasa Inggeris!. Seharusnya mereka itu bersyukur kerana Tun mahu menulis dan mahu berkongsi pengetahuan dan pengalaman.

    Berkenaan perbezaan warna kulit, agama dan budaya, bangsa Cina di Malaysia sekiranya hidup di Amerika tidak akan dapat bertahan lama. Ini adalah kerana budaya cowboy itu sendiri lebih aggresif dari budaya Melayu. Tidak mengikut cara mereka sahaja atau mereka tidak suka dengan anda, anda akan di tembak oleh cowboy ini.

    Tetapi di Amerika kononnya bebas dan tidak dikongkong. tetapi apa yang kita dapat lihat, semua kadar mengenai kejahatan di dunia ini pastinya Amerika berada dalam kelompok atas.

    Apa perkara berkenaan Amerika yang telah diberikan publisiti terlampau. Maknanya Yahudi yang memegang kunci keselamatan dan ekonomi di Amerika mempunyai dua pilihan. pertama, meranapkan ekonomi Amerika dan menghancurkannya dengan letupan nuklear atau kedua, memberikan rakyat Amerika nafas selagi mereka masih mengawal semua aktiviti harian rakyat Amerika melalui percaturan kuasa proksi mereka.

    Dimanakah titik perpaduan African American, Chinese American, Russian American dll boleh bersatu. Sebenarnya tiada. Bersatu hanya dalam filem Hollywood yang dikawal Yahudi. Realitinya masing masing mempunyai pistol dan senapang di rumah dan memandang kaum yang lain dengan syak wasangka.

    Cara Malaysia ialah kerana semasa ingin mencapai kemerdekaan,hak penduduk pribumi telah dijamin. Agama rasmi telah ditetapkan. Apa jua dasar yang diperkenalkan Kerajaan Malaysia adalah mengambil kira hak keistimewaan orang orang Melayu sebagai penduduk pribumi telah dirancang dengan baik.

    Didalam undang undang malaysia mana mana kaum yang menghasut akan dikenakan tindakan tata tertib dibawah akta hasutan dan mana mana kaum yang merancang untuk merusuh akan dikenakan juga tindakan dengan tangkapan dibawah undang undang khas keselamatan dalam negeri.

    Peraturan yang dibuat ini telah menjadikan rakyat Malaysia hormat menghormati sesama sendiri sehinggalah hak sama rata telah di canang oleh DAP sebagai Malaysian Malaysia – tiada diskriminasi. PAS pula menyokong dan sanggup menggadaikan hak istimewa melayu dengan memainkan lagu islam yang adil.

    Akibatnya, melayu semakin lemah. Tiada kestabilan politik dan negara sehingga kini menjadi huru hara.

    Perkataan curi dan samun terdengar sehingga ke Putrajaya.

  75. A. P. R. Jun 24,2015 1:40 PM

    Good read, balance view although not discussed or elaborated in depth. BUT. the message that we need to continue on what has been established is there 🙂

    Have a good day Tun

  76. Fariq Islam Jun 24,2015 9:28 AM

    Assalamualaikum, Tun.

    Agenda DEB ini, pada asalnya, mungkin baik untuk mengurangkan jurang kekayaan di antara kaum. Namun, ia telah disalahguna untuk kepentingan segelintir “kroni”.

    Kita harus menumpahkan lebih banyak usaha untuk memperprogresifkan generasi baru, anak cucu kita. Mentaliti kena berubah. Orang-orang Cina bukannya dilahirkan dengan otak yang lebih cergas, tetapi mereka bersemangat dan berusaha gigih demi kejayaan.

    Kerajaan sekarang telah memberi banyak peluang kepada anak-anak Melayu, berbanding dengan Cina. Baik kita berusaha dengan lebih kuat lagi, untuk mempertingkatkan taraf sendiri. Kita adalah bangsa yang bermaruah, tak usahlah bergantung kepada “tongkat” untuk hidup!

  77. Hang Jebat Derhaka Jun 24,2015 9:26 AM

    Assalamualaikum,

    Hmmm, sudden drop in comments. Maybe the subject is not attractive enough.

    I notice this blog is more happening when you posted out articles against Pak Lah and DS Najib. There are a lot of new commentators rarely seen taking part. For other articles, there usually not many comments.

    What does this tells us? I don’t know. What I do know is that my fellow citizen is nicer when they are not politicking.

    I guess the period that saw our relation worst was when Anwar’s story blew out. People practically become crazy that time both pro and against. We tend to fight each other even among close relatives.

    You see, I sense that Malaysian actually love politicians. People believe they are living the cause when they showed their affection to their politician of choice. We still not getting ourselves out of Dr M, Anwar, Najib and Kit Siang (no need to mention the dead ones). After that there always their sons and their daughter and the sons of their sons and their daughter.

    Even for Muslims, an ulama must also be a politician or a celebrities before they can be idolised. Does anybody cares about the dakwah effort by Ustaz Ebiet Liew? Ebiet who? definitely not politician nor a celebrities.

    When I walk around, guys talk about politics until their mouth bleeds, the girls, hmm they usually love gossiping about celebrities. I am not too sure who is more popular than the other?

    Maybe I am just being ridiculous, but in the end of the day, there will always be corruption story about politician (your story is even worst Tun) and divorce story about the celebrities. Life goes on whether we like it or not.

    Happy Ramadan y’all. May Allah bless us.

  78. anak wawasan 2020 Jun 24,2015 8:09 AM

    Salam Ayahanda Tun,

    I always believe in this saying, “If they are not our league, discount them”.

    I heard a motivation talk yesterday which I think it is worth sharing. It was mentioned, that, if the whole world team up to bring 1 person down, they will still fail, without Allah’s blessing. And I truly believe in that.

    Go on Ayahanda Tun, just be yourself, fear no one except Allah. We count on you Ayahanda Tun. Malaysia is counting on you in this critical period. Pls lead us again as we do not trust the current government now. As the wise man says, trust is like a paper, once it is crumpled, it will never get back to its original form again.

    Please, Ayahanda Tun. Our doas are with you to help us go through this darkness and cruelty.

    Terima kasih Daeng.

    Saya bertuah kerana didedahkan kepada pergaulan antara kaum samada cina atau pun India.

    Pada zaman sekolah setiap petang, kami akan bermain bolasepak di atas padang luas yang sama. Keting India tentulah paling keras. Manakala aksesori untuk bermain tentulah dijuarai oleh budak cina. Saya guna kaki ayam je.

    Loceng untuk berhenti main adalah loceng kuil dan juga azan dari surau berdekatan, yang mana dahulu. Adakala bunyi loceng kuil boleh dikatakan azan akan berkumandang tak lama lagi.

    Tentulah saya menyokong dasar DEB. Bukan kerana berfikir Bangsa Melayu perlu pada pertolongan, tetapi bagi memastikan jurang perbezaan kekayaan tidak terlalu ketara sehingga mungkin berlaku lagi rusuhan seperti 13 Mei 1969.

    Kerajinan orang Melayu bekerja tidak ada tolok bandingnya. Suasana tempat kerja saya tidak menggambarkan bahawa orang Melayu adalah pemalas. Bahkan staff India tidak begitu rajin jika dibandingkan. Apatah lagi orang cina, yang tidak mahu makan gaji rendah. Maka staff Melayu juga akan dicampurkan bersama pasukan mereka.

    Maka konsep DEB adalah kena pada Malaysia. Kenapa perlu kita mengikut acuan negara luar. Malaysia adalah unik kehidupannya.

    Bila motosikal saya perlu kepada servis, saya akan pergi ke sebuah kedai motor. Tuan punya kedai ini selalu mencari peluang untuk bercakap berkenaan ekonomi negara, termasuk GST!

    Ye lo, dia buka kedai motor di kawasan kampung Melayu, kadangkala dia risau berkenaan perkembangan perniagaannya yang ada peratusan akan terjejas kerana dasar baru kerajaan.

    Sudah tentu saya katakan pada dia, harga naik pun orang beli jugak, bila dia katakan adakah saya tidak fikir setiap sen GST jika setiap ahli dalam keluarga sumbangkan dalam sebulan dah berapa banyak kalau dikira?

    Dia tanyakan gaji saya berapa. Katanya lagi, orang cina tak tengok gaji RM1,000. Orang cina akan cari gaji yang lebih tinggi. Bukan warganegara pun boleh senang lenang, maka tak ada alasan bagi orang Melayu nak kata susah nak senang lenang katanya lagi.

    Sudah tentu saya bersetuju dengan pendapat kawan saya itu. Tetapi setiap organisasi yang berjaya adalah ditunjangi oleh bangsa Melayu. Dan taraf gaji pada peringkat bawah ini adalah kecil nisbahnya jika dibandingkan dengan atasan.

    Jika rajin tiada tolok banding sekalipun, perubahan taraf sosial tidak terinjak kerana itulah skim gajinya. Tetapi tidaklah disalahkan kepada atasan kerana ini. Perniagaan memang semacam itu. Mencari peluang meningkatkan untung syarikat.

    Saya tidaklah mahu menunjuk serba tahu, tapi saya katakan pada dia gaji orang niaga kedai motor ini pun dah RM6,000 sebulan dan dia mengaku benar. Saya katakan bahwa saya pun pernah niaga.

    Niaga dan kerja makan gaji adalah satu perbezaan yang besar.

    Katanya lagi, dalam niaga jangan kita kira untung paling banyak. Kita kira pada untung paling sikit dalam sebulan yang mana kita boleh hidup. Jadi maksud kawan saya ini, duit untung yang banyak dalam sesuatu masa itu jangan diboroskan. Simpan semasa susah niaga nanti. Itu mentaliti yang diperlukan dalam niaga.

    Katanya lagi, jika sesuatu berlaku pada Malaysia, orang cina boleh hidup setahun tanpa kerja. Itulah jaminan keselamatan (jaringan keselamatan sosial) dalam niaga.

    Saya bersetuju dengan kawan saya ini dan saya doakan dia kekal maju dan berjaya dalam hidup dia sebagai ahli baiki motor.

  81. daeng Jun 24,2015 6:56 AM

    Assalamualaikum. Tun,

    Saya bersependapat dengan kenyataan saudara suhainin suhaibul:

    “Sekolah dan Pendidikan berasaskan ‘Kaum’”. India dengan sekolah Tamil…. Cina dengan sekolah Cina Mandarin… Melayu dengan sekolah Bahasa Melayu”. Kesudahannya – ” ‘Anxiety Senyap’ antara kaum”.

    Bagi saya inilah punncanya mengapa perpaduan antara kaum di Malaysia tidak mencapai tahap yang diharapkan. Selagi adanya sekolah aliran Cina dan Tamil ini maka selagi itulah perpaduan antara kaum di Malaysia menuju jalan buntu.

    Saya juga setuju dengan saranan dari saudara hskamal:

    Pemimpin MIC pada masa kini merupakan pemimpin2 yang hanya tahu sapu kekayaan negara untuk peribadi mereka. Ini berlaku apabila pemimpin seperti PM, menunjukan kelemahan dan keborosan dlm kepimpinanya.

    Semua pemimpin2 parti komponent pada masa kini sedang bermaharajalela akibat drp perbuatan DSN, yg menggunakan duit negara tanpa rasa takut dan malu. Oleh itu, pada masa skrg peminpin yg kononya mewakili kaum india, hidup dalam kemewahan yg tidak munasabah langsung.

    Bagi saya ia hampir serupa dengan masyarakat Melayu yang bergiat aktif dalam politik UMNO. Perjuangan untuk bangsa dan agama hanya sebagai retorik sahaja. Majoriti mereka yang benar-benar jujur hanya segelintir tetapi golongan ini tenggelam dan ditenggelam oleh golongan majoriti yang mengejar kebendaan sahaja. Kalaulah orang seperti saya ( bukan mahu memuji diri sendiri ) yang jujur tentang kebaikan majoriti masyarakat/rakyat, tiada tempat. Kecualilah orang macam saya adalah orang no 1 dalam negara seperti PM, saya percaya saya mampu mengubah rakyat Malaysia ke arah “perpaduan nasional”. Tetapi mungkin saya ada idea lain tersendiri, hapuskan pemberi rasuah dan penerima rasuah dengan hukuman tersangat berat, begitu juga hukuman penyeludup yang tersangat berat dan sebagainya. Kesimpulannya pemimpin no 1 mesti “brutal” dan berani serta drastik dari apa yang PM lalu dan sekarang lakukan demi kebaikan SEMUA. Malangnya orang yang terlalu jujur selalunya tiada tempat dalam politik.

    Wassalam.

    Dear Tun,

    Whether they (international media) acknowledge it or otherwise, the fact is, NEP helped millions of Malays to at least be able to compete and not marginalised in their own country AND at the same time did not deny prosperity to the minorities.

    Some will argue it has yet to achieve its targets because in overall the Malays are still left behind by the minorities. Its a new dilemma – where the Malays political masters are the culprits now, in creating social imbalances affecting their own race. Greed and complacency have blinded them.

    They themseves will cause racial inequality and will blame others for it.

  83. johigh Jun 24,2015 2:06 AM

    Tying of loose ends. They caught 1MDB whistle blower in Thailand. As a Petrosaudi IT exec, he must have loads of IT evidence against them. Wonder whether these evidence could see light of day. Sure he must have made copies stashed in a safe place.

    Dear Tun,

    As always, a great pleasure that you might read this.

    With regards to this recent post, whilst I am in agreement with what you are saying, I believe, you are very much, part of the problem.

    You, in all your capacity, had propagated race base politics to further your own political agenda. You reap what you sow. This is the country we live in as a result of your policies.

    I hope you comment further on this Tun. I have no doubt you are righteous man.

    Many thanks,

    A humble Malaysian

    Dear Tun,

    Happy Father’s Day.. semoga Tun sehat, dilanjutkan usia, dilindungi Allah.. dapat membimbing kami semua anak-anak Tun meskipun tiada pertalian darah kami sayang Tun umpama bapa sendiri.

    Tun dikasihi, usah Tun terkesan sedikit pun dengan tingkahlaku anak-anak durhaka.. kerana Allah maha melihat serta mengetahui apa yang mereka buat. Mereka boleh buat sesuka hati membolak balik cerita menuding jari kepada Tun walaupun hakikatnya mereka yang membuat onar. Kerana kuasa di tangan mereka. Biarkan Tun. Tun teruskan dengan cara Tun, menulis. Mata pena Tun lebih tajam dan berbisa daripada mata pedang! Sehinggakan DSN takut, Ahmad Maslan (clown) pun kata kerana mata pena Tun Ringgit jatuh… begitu hebatnya penangan mata pena Tun. Agaknya gema suara Tun juga punya efek tersendiri – Najib lari bertempiaran bila dengar suara Tun – anak-anak siswa di UTP pula bila mendengar suara Tun di mikrofon Dewan Chanseleri mereka menjerit tempik mendengar suara Tun testing mike, Tun idola pujaan siswa UTP, mengalahkan konsert rock Imagine Dragon atau 1Direction! Begitulah hebatnya barakah orang tua ini.

    So Tun, who cares about this Foreign Affairs American magazine, except for those few groups of people having interests in America’s wealth, and outsiders like the current PM of Malaysia who claims to be Obama’s close friend, and hence becomes lackey to the Jewish game of throne. One such lackey lackey is Anifah Aman who had made a fool of himself by writing to the Jewish New York Times badmouthing his own ex-PM who had made Malaysia known to the world with his (Tun Mahathir) countless contributions to the country. If I may say this, Anifah Aman is well disliked by his own fellow Sabahans for his elitism and snobbishness, and fofular (popular) among the opposite sex as don juan of Sabah once upon a time ago or still holding the title..? Hmm I guess this isn’t news to you Tun. So ignore this spoilt brat’s insults becos his playing don quixote only points back at his own birdbrain self.

    Tun dear, finally the Americans or at least that magazine Foreign Affairs acknowledge Malaysia as a country with multi racials able to live in harmony… it should have been said way back when you were still in office before 2004 becos that was true then. Now I doubt what is being written in that American magazine holds much or any truth. Since Abdullah Badawi and now Najib multi racial relations in our beloved Malaysia has gotten rotten, much to that amusing news potrayed in that American mag. So you know well whether to believe the strory they have concocted, like so the story don juan Anifah had concocted about you Tun, thrash it in the bin or the toilet bowl if I were you.

    I pray that we our country will not become like one of those African countries so deeply immersed in corruption corrupted leaders and their abuse of power yet they are still strongly in power even though their people rakyat are so so much unhappiest. Poor African countries like Togo. Najib has the ability to turn Malaysia into one if he continues to head this country.

    That’s all for now Tun. Goodnight sleep well dear Tun Dr. Mahathir and Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah. Selamat bersahur nanti. Take good care Tun, we love you full!

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    True indeed ayahanda, we don’t need that PM Najib “1 Malaysia” slogan to be able to live together harmoniously in a multi racial society of our beloved country Malaysia.

    Even the Sultan of Johor delivers another royal snub to Najib saying that it’s 5Malaysian Not 1Malaysia.

    Malaysian have learned to accept the differences between various races and to manage the differences in cultural and religious beliefs. Our relationships have always been based on mutual respect and trust and learn to accommodate each other appropriately.

    Most of the time it will be the politicians who normally creates unrest and not being sensitive to these differences for their political means and survival. They are the ones who doesn’t walk the talk.

    We the average rakyat have been living comfortably with neighbours and friends of various cultures and even enjoys different festive celebrations together. Where can you find these in other countries?

    Therefore I strongly believe that “1 Malaysia” slogan is some stupid idea from someone stupid who can’t see that we Malaysian can and will always respect the differences and have long time ago learned to tolerate and accommodate each other.

    Wasalam Tun.

    p/s – Nice to know that you were at the bazaar ramadhan Section 13 Shah Alam few hours ago.. Faridina’s were just 3 kilometres away and could have come across you 🙂

    Saya sebenarnya kagum dengan kebesaran Tuhan & apa yng Tuhan anugerahkan pada Tun. Teruskan Tun..InsyaAllah Tun berada di jalan-Nya & Tun tahu bagaimana nk membezakan ianya benar atau pun tersasar..

    Mudah2an Tuhan sentiasa memimpin segala usaha Tun tetap pada jalan-Nya. InsyaAllah..dengan pimpinan-Nya..dulu, kini & selamanya.

    Tun, Teruskan perjuangan !

    Tun in Ramadhan
    Let’s Nature takes it course
    You have done a lot to put Malaysia to Right
    As a Muslim its wiser to walk off and Doas for Malaysia
    A wise man will walk off with Doas after trying his best and leave it to Allah
    This I just heard from 1 Imam in Masjid
    He do no have to pull the string

    Be Reminded
    Yr aggressiveness towards Najib wrong doings
    Is also a smiling matters to Opposition party to those who wish our Break Fall
    As much as the Arabs are becoming the proxy Wars among their own Muslims Brothers for the Jews, The US war mongers
    The Jews The Uinted States War Mongers are Clapping with Joy
    These is what they want
    These is what wrong the Muslim do
    My Jihad is to Unite my brothers be it Shiah, Sunni, Talibab , Isis and the many more
    For them Not to Fight against each other’s but to Unite as One Ummah
    They are Confused and are Blind to identify their True Enemy
    So help me Allah

    None of us ask God to be born Malay, Chinese, Indian ,Western , Jews
    Muslims, Hindu, Christian nor others
    The facts among us there are Idiotic Minded people whom think they are aboves others
    They think they are aboves the Law
    These are mainly US Supremacy whom they thought they are in the upper hands
    They can paint black to white ,white to black
    With their military might they thought they can buy the World
    They are Wrong as History has proven such
    These Weapons of theirs Will Eat Them Up

    Ai…ya Tun, it seems you want to give Najib some air to breath. You talkes something else in this article.

    Your every post is precious. Please lead us in digging out the wrongdoing of Najib’s 1MDB Bhd company.

    Assalamualaikum Tun…. salam Rammadhan…. semoga semuanya beroleh rahmat Allah….

    Agak sukar berlalu daripada ruangan Tun ini… akhir-akhir ini Tun selalu menulis sesuatu yang memancing minat pembaca termasuklah saya.

    “Recently while flying I came across its latest edition. Its theme in the issue is on race and colour and on how they affect relations between people. I became interested because I felt sure the magazine would have nothing good to say about Malaysia.”

    Berbicara tentang itu – saya terkenang kembali kata-kata Profesor Syed Hussein Alatas – ” Adakah Mahathir berhasil sebagai seorang pemimpin secara menyeluruh?”

    Beliau berkata “Mahathir hanya sekadar berjaya membina bangunan-bangunan dan melalui dengan jayanya beberapa krisis…tetapi…walau pun bukan secara total; dia gagal dalam membangunkan hampir segenap aspek pembangunan rohani,jasmani dan ekonomi rakyat Malaysia.”

    Tambahnya lagi; “Kejayaan seorang pemimpin bukan sekadar dinilai jayanya melalui bangunan-bangunan yang didirikannya tetapi jauh lebih tinggi daripada itu penilaiannya. Tanpa kita semua, Ahli Akedamik…Media…etc… Mahathir bukan lah sesiapa dan dia tidak akan mampu bergerak ke mana-mana.”

    Itu kata-kata mentor saya tersebut…lalu… kami semua “Berperang” dalam mengupas kebenaran dua buah buku tulisan Tun Dr.Mahathir dan Profesor Syed Hussein Alatas itu. “The Malay Dilema” VS “Myth Of The Lazy Native”. Banyak kisah suka duka termasuk kehilangan nyawa serta pelbagai; Telah kami alami dalam mengupas dan meriwayatkan kedua-dua buku ini menjadi “Kisah 2003”. Kami tidak membincangkannya dalam bilik kuliah…tetapi… mencari kebenaran dengan “Mendramakannya” secara jujur dalam masyarakat sebenar.

    Apakah Tun mengetahui bahawa kedua-dua buku itu berhantu dan ditulis dengan air mata serta darah dalam ceritarama “Kisah 2003”?

    Kedua-dua buku itu benar-benar telah menjalani kehidupan serta hidup sejujurnya dalam dunia sebenar.Buku-buku lain hanya mampu dihidupkan di layar perak…tetapi… buku kalian dihidupkan dengan “Menari-Nari dalam Kehidupan Masyarakat Sebenar”. Direalitikan hidup dalam ertikata hidup yang sebenar.

    Dalam kisah itu dahulu – “Kalah jadi Abu;Menang jadi Arang” – Ramai yang kecundang dan terkorban, jikalau Tun mengetahuinya?
    Akan tiba masanya kelak, “Kisah 2003” yang dipenuhi lagenda misterius itu akan dibukukan. Saya tidak tahu jikalau Tun akan berkesempatan menatapnya nanti…namun… saya amat mengharapkannya.

    Pendek kata…Kedua-dua kalian benar belaka…tetapi… ketika saya bertugas di Singapura pada tahun 2006; Taukeh-taukeh Singapura seperti “The Kitchener”…Bidang Perhotelan… Syarikat-Syarikat “Cleaner”…etc…kesemuanya berkata “Ada pekerja selain bangsa Melayu Tak?”… jikalau ada pekerja daripada Burma,Thailand,Sabah,Sarawak..etc… mereka akan memilih mereka terlebih dahulu.

    Saya pura-pura bertanya begini… “Bos… kenapa bos buat begitu? bos tidak suka Melayu kah?” – mereka berkata… “Ini Melayu ada malas sikit lah, susah mahu atur, suka curi tulang.”….. Saya sekadar ternganga….. Rakan sekerja saya seorang “Melayu”…walau pun… tidak sekomited dan serajin pekerja “India”….tetapi… dia tidak lah malas sangat… segalanya bergantung kepada sikap seseorang.

    Lihat… betapa besarnya pengaruh buku tulisan Tun itu kepada “Asia Tenggara”… Malah mungkin mewujudkan semacam suatu “Persepsi Terhadap Sikap Melayu”, dikalangan khalayak seluruh dunia.

    Kembali kepada persoalan kita tadi – “race and colour and on how they affect relations between people.” – Hubungan Cina,India dan Melayu di “Malaya”, sebenarnya umpama “Gunung Berapi” yang menanti saat ledakannya. Ini adalah suatu realiti yang dinyatakan sejujurnya. Tidak perlu berselindung dengan kata-kata “Hipokrasi” untuk membohongi hati sendira, kerana kami di dalam masyarak melihatnya dengan jelas sekali.

    Sebenarnya amat jarang sekali India,Melayu dan Cina duduk minum semeja di Semenanjung Malaysia; Kecuali dalam “kelas-kelas” tertentu. Apa penyebabnya – “Sekolah dan Pendidikan berasaskan ‘Kaum'”. India dengan sekolah Tamil…. Cina dengan sekolah Cina Mandarin… Melayu dengan sekolah Bahasa Melayu”. Kesudahannya – ” ‘Anxiety Senyap’ antara kaum”.

    Jikalau “DAP” benar-benar jujur dalam berkata – “Malaysia For Malaysian” – … sila selesaikan kemelut yang satu ini….soal “Pendidikan Berbilang Aliran Berasaskan Kaum”.

    Di Sabah…. Kadazan,Melayu,Bajau…etc… telah menjadi kebiasaan bagi mereka duduk minum semeja dengan Cina dan India… Kristian,Islam, Buddha dan ‘Tok Pek Kong’ mampu bergembira bersama. Tetapi….. akhir-akhir ini ada racun yang menyerap daripada Semenanjung Malaysia seperti soal penggunaan “Kalimah Allah”….ISIS…etc… Bermula daripada itu, wujud sentiment keagamaan lain (Kristian dan Islam) yang menyerap masuk ke Sabah daripada luar Negara….. dan….. ianya amat berbahaya. Hal ini sedang membentuk menjadi umpama Gunung Berapi hidup yang sedang mula membuak dalam kesenyapan dan kesamaran.

    Sekali lagi – Sabah – Cetusan Gunung Berapi yang dahsyat, bakal berlaku kerana”Perang Dingin” sedang marak dengan pantasnya antara “Penduduk Asal” Sabah dengan Pendatang Indonesia,Pendatang Philipina serta pendatang lain yang telah memegang “Kad Pengenalan Warganegara Malaysia”. Hal ini boleh mencetuskan “Perang Saudara”.

    Apakah kita mahu melihat “Malaysia” menjadi umpama “Russia” yang telah pecah berterabur? Bagi Sabah….. mereka tidak risau pun untuk berpisah daripada “Malaysia”…Malahan… mereka menghendakinya. Isunya – selama 50 tahun; Berbaloikah bagi Sabah duduk bersama dalam “Malaysia”? Lihat pembangunan insfrastruktur Sabah? Berbohong para Wakil Rakyat yang mengatakan Sabah sudah maju.

    Benar…ada sedikit perubahan tetapi tidak setara sebagaimana negeri lain dalam Malaysia…hatta jikalau dibandingkan dengan negeri kecil yang kurang penghasilannya seperti Perlis sekali pun.

    Persoalan – ketulusan hati dan keadilan “Malaya” dalam serba-serbi? Cerdik pandai Sabah sebenarnya sedang terbuku “Cerita” ini dalam hati mereka. Segalanya umpama “Retak Menanti Belah”. Sentimen dari luar negara menyemarakan lagi “”Kisah” ini. “Sabah” menganggap “Malaya” sebagai beban yang menghalang kemajuan dan menjana ketidak stabilannya serta umpama “Penjajah” sikapnya.

    Siapa yang memerintah Malaysia selama 22 tahun? Apakah dia terlepas pandang akan semua ini? Secara umumnya -Tidak- …tetapi… dia hanya melihat “Malaya” sebagai “Agenda Utamanya”. Sabah dan Sarawak seolah-olah umpama “Lombong” sahaja baginya. Jikalau gagal membangun; Akan diletakkan kegagalan itu di bahu pemimpin Sabah dan Sarawak sebagai “Kambing Hitam”.

    Kini… serangan secara sangat halus dan sistematik daripada luar, menjadi begitu hebat. “Mummy Jarum” yang sangat licik dan bijak daripada Luar Malaysia; Begitu berleluasa tikaman halusnya, tanpa sama sekali disedari oleh “Pemimpin dan Rakyat Malaysia”. Keadaan ini memburukkan lagi keadaan. Mereka telah bermula sangat aktif seawal tahun 2000’An dahulu.

    Kembali kepada soal “Kejayaan” tadi ; bagi saya… Makna Kejayaan itu terlalu “Subjektif”. Kita tidak boleh menghukum sesiapa dengan mengatakan bahawa dia “Gagal”. Ada “Kejayaan dalam Kegagalan”…Dan… ada juga “Kegagalan dalam Kejayaan”.

    Assalamualaikum Tun….. bagi saya, kalian semua (Pemimpin dan Cendikiawan terdahulu), merupakan yang “Terbaik”. Tanpa kalian, Saya (Kami) tidak wujud begini adanya sekarang ini….

    Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh…….

    Salam Tun,

    We, the malaysians, should be more grateful because we are blessed being born and living in a peaceful country like Malaysia.

    When we acknowledge our gratitude, then only we will be able to see Malaysia in a positive perspective.

    We can choose between positive and negative. We can choose.

    I am proud to be a malay but I have decendents of chinese. I have close indian friends and collegues working around me. I was brought up as a malay in a city dominated by chinese and now working with more of indian collegues around me. But that makes me a special malaysian. I have never encounter any moment of racial dilemma. We all lived, eat and work together as a team simply because we all love Malaysia.

    Do we have a real problem here? In reality NO, but politically YES. Its a pity but we still have hopes. Let’s embrace unity and move forward towards making Malaysia a developed country by 2020.

    Dearest Tun, in order to do that, “weedings” needs to be done first! The manipulatives must be unrooted and thrown out. Then we need to plant new seeds of hopes. This time, we cannot make the third mistake. Two mistakes are already too much for us to gobble. The effects are unbearable and painful. If we do not do this, then Vision 2020 will be just a dream..

  97. hskamal Jun 23,2015 9:32 PM

    Salam Ramadhan Tun,

    Untuk informasi Tun, saya adalah adik ipar kepada bekas timbalan presiden MIC, Tan Sri S. Subramaniam. Ibu isteri beliau adalah kakak kandung kepada ibu saya.
    Malangnya, oleh kerana kami adalah golongan pertengahan rendah maka keluarga kami di pandang tak penting dan tidak memberi apa2 kelebihan kepada mereka.

    Saya ingin bertanya Tun, dalam usaha Tun, untuk menyelamatkan Malaysia drp org2 seperti DSN, bolehkah Tun, juga menyuarakan sesuatu perubahan kepimpinan yg drastik dalam MIC.

    Pemimpin MIC pada masa kini merupakan pemimpin2 yang hanya tahu sapu kekayaan negara untuk peribadi mereka. Ini berlaku apabila pemimpin seperti PM, menunjukan kelemahan dan keborosan dlm kepimpinanya.

    Semua pemimpin2 parti komponent pada masa kini sedang bermaharajalela akibat drp perbuatan DSN, yg menggunakan duit negara tanpa rasa takut dan malu. Oleh itu, pada masa skrg peminpin yg kononya mewakili kaum india, hidup dalam kemewahan yg tidak munasabah langsung.

    Lihat saja bagaimana seorang timbalan menteri seperti Saravan, boleh hidup dgn amat mewah memandangkan tempoh berada dlm MIC dan kerajaan. Beliau memiliki harta2 yg melebihi kemampuanya sebagai t.menteri. Beliau merupakan seorang yg berlatarbelakangkan yg boleh di katakan tidak baik dan kotor untuk menjadi seorang pemimpin.

    Saya ingin menanya pada Tun, mengapakah Umno/BN boleh membenarkan pemimpin2 seperti Saravanan, Vell Pari, T Mohan dan ramai lagi, ruang dan tempat dalam politik Malaysia untuk bertapak dan membahayakan masyarakat umum dgn perbuatan mereka yg jahat dan bahaya.

    Banyak insiden jenayah telah berlaku melibatkan pemimpin2 MIC yg di sebut diatas.

    Oleh yang demikian saya mohon Tun, agar dlm usaha Tun, dpt memberi harapan baharu kepada kaum india dan selamatkan mereka drp org2 seperti yg saya maksudkan di atas.

    Hanya dgn pertolongan org melayu sahaja kaum india boleh hidup aman dan dapat berjaya dalam negara ini.

    Ribuan terima kasih Tun,

    hskamal

    “Message in a bottle”,

    Dearest,
    Najib Razak,
    Prime Minister of Malaysia.

    The complexity and your sometimes frustration of administering ones own
    country is understandable. You should not heed the argument made by large portion of Malaysian people , members of your own coalition ruling parties by the way ( otak lembab macam mentega kacang Daisy ) and especially to that ” orang tua ” who like all Malaysian political
    figures knee deep in corruption , nepotism , full of rhetoric( $h!t$ ) and low on substance .

    We implore on you to be strong, decisive and steadfast in your decision making , in other words be a “man”.

    As a vassal ( I mean ) allies the wellbeing in terms of the stability in political , military , economy , religious and racial harmony in Malaysia is our utmost concerns . It alliance with our “pivot to Asia” policies ( US hegemony ) perfectly .

    We at CFR promotes( shovel down the throat )civil liberties like human rights , free speech , free trades , fair elections , women’s self empowerment and among others , because our way is the correct way .

    Lastly best of luck on your future endeavour , have a great Ramadan and a festive Hari Raya .

    Yours Consort ,
    Council on Foreign Relation .
    ( From the nation that make others grovel under it heels ) .

    Salam Tun.

    1. Di negara Amereka juga ada majalah dan media yang pro kerajaan dan sebaliknya. Kita dapat lihat ia menjadi pro kepada sesuatu negara bila laporan tidak sama gambaran yang diberikan dengan realiti yang berlaku pada masa sekarang.

    2. Cuba pastikan siapa pemilik majalah ” Foreign Affairs ” ini. Golongan kaya ini selalunya ada hubungan dengan parti yang tertentu. Realiti kadang-kadang dilindungi parti yang memerintah sekarang supaya para pembaca -pembaca tidak akan meragui pemerintahan sekarang dan tidak akan tergugat.

    3. Samalah juga dengan keadaan bila dikatakan janganlah memburuk-burukkan negara kita pada mata orang lain walau pun keadaan sebaliknya.

    4. Islam terbentuk dari kebenaran yang diamalkan iaitu mengikut perintah Allah s.w.t. Negara Islam juga terbentuk dari kebenaran yang mengikut kehendak Allah s.w.t. Jadi negara kita Malaysia juga perlukan kebenaran agar yang membawa keburukan realiti itu dibentuk kembali oleh orang-orang yang memegang kebenaran seperti yang dikehendaki oleh Allah s.w.t.

    Wallahua’lam.

    Assalammualaikum Ayahda & Bonda,

    Artikel mengingatkan anakanda kepada perjuangan kaum india dan melayu, namun anakanda sempat bersembang dengan penyokong G. PALANIVEL mengenai kemelut MIC.

    Anakanda juga mengutarakan Teori Permainan atau Game Theory bagi memahami dasar dan hasil dari permainan ini.

    Anakanda ucapkan Selamat Hari Ayah dan Selamat Hari Ibu kepada Ayahda dan Bonda!

    Selamat Berpuasa, Kami Rakyat Malaysia Sayangkan Anda Sekeluarga.

    Dear Tun,

    In my view, I will give NEP a passing mark of 70 percent despite whatever the detractors are saying. You yourself tweak it further the moment you become the PM. Among other things, quietly I believe your instructions was to send as many Bumiputras as possible to study abroad. For that, I was forever grateful to you as I was one of them. With NEP and affirmative actions, the malay middle class has grown by leaps and bounds under your helm and hopefully we will keep growing till the end of time. When you implement the capital control, the whole world was against you and there was this professor from NUS calling you all kind of names but at the end, you proved all of them wrong and they all ended with eggs in their face.

    Now we hope there will be more leaders like you so that the Malay and Malaysia can still be relevant in years to come. Such leader need to be strong, incisive and be able to give something extraordinary to the people in the trouble time like you did with your capital control Tun.

    Selamat Berbuka Tun.

    Ps- HBT 456, my henchman, Luca Brassi told me the the UMNO signage in Penang was taken down by a group of lowborns. Let the authorities handle the case because my Luca won’t kill lowborns unless they are related to don tataglia, don barzini and all the heads of the 5 families.

  104. Hajar Jun 23,2015 4:39 PM

    Dearest YAB Tun,

    1. Yes, NEP (DEB) has played very significant role in ensuring racial harmony in Malaysia.

    2. But, currently we have a PM who is clueless about the reason why NEP was introduced. May be he has no idea why his father & gang proposed NEP in the first place.

    3. In fact, PM Najib @ Ah Jib Gor has contributed a lot to the current scenarios where some people have lost respect towards other races (being so racist).

    4. PM Najib has created a lot of problems to all of us and also to Malaysia. He is destroying the hardwork of PM-1, PM-2, PM-3, and PM-4. He also created 1MDB that has accumulated RM42 BILLION debt. He will bankrupt Malaysia. So, it is not either ‘GST or Bankruptcy’. He is giving us BOTH.

    5. PM Najib must step down now before it’s too late.

    Thanks Tun.

    *** May Allah SWT bless Tun and family ***

  105. sudin Jun 23,2015 4:10 PM

    Assalam Tun,

    How come Najib is not happy with the achievements made by NEP?
    Probably he’s very confident his ways will be more successful, he’s much better than that of his late father’s policy….
    Kah kah kah!!!

    Or, Najib never like any legacy left behind by others. He only wants to see his own legacies being left behind as the history.

    If Najib is willing to challenge Tun Razak’s NEP policy, it’s not surprising that all the great achievements made by Tun Dr. M will be made to become forgotten!!!!

  106. KunKlai Jun 23,2015 3:29 PM

    Dirgahayu Tun berdua,
    We know that we have been right from the begining. Actually our success is not just modest. Our success is excellence. Offcouse there are alot of our own people will not admit it, they claim to be secondclass citizens. Theese are the very active people that promote to the western world of how the ‘bad’ Malay goverment (the MCA and MIC were never mention) robbing all their rights.
    When somebody were offered a scholarship to study overseas, that person must agreed to comeback and served Malaysia as a lowly paid goverment officer for certain years. But, any secondclass citizens will reject outright of the condition. To come back and serve goverment? Not in their wildest dream or thought. Once succesful in completing their study, they would stay there forever.
    To be fair, some malay do decide to do just that, i.e. stay in their host country… probably about 5% did that. But, the other 95% do comeback and serve fullheartedly.
    Thanks. Dirgahayu Tun.

    Salam Tun,

    We have proven to the world that our policies are for the people to live in harmony in the past, now and future. NEP is suddenly is the best policy that our government has implemented. Though it has not been fully successful but it could have been worse if we never had NEP in place.

    I am just worried about our current government’s action. I hope the still remember that our country Malaysia is unique and therefore need unique way to administer. We don’t have to follow other people’s way of running their country. NEP, ISA etc. should be in place for as long as possible to protect our country from racial tensions.

    Thank you Tun.

    The US is a nation of “pious platitudes”. Great slogans Ambiga Sreenivasan and her Bersih like to borrow and chant but it is often found wanting in substance when you examine it at ground level.

    The massacre last week of 9 innocent church goers and the ‘kid gloves’ with which the police are seen treating the young suspect says it all. Every picture tells a story. These pictures speak volumes of the mindset not only in North Carolina but throughout the US.

    Obama is a token as was Colin Powell. But they are like some of the rich Bumis in Malaysia who hog the hand outs and benefits of affirmative action and leave their kinfolk less fortunate than them behind so that they find more acceptance with their white peers.

    The US is ready to explode. We will be witness to a brutal form of the police state when the blacks arm like they did in the 1970’s and caught the establishment off guard.

    It is odd how the feminist movements there have been quiet in the face of thee church massacre. Thy do not condemn it because white middle class women did not die at the hands of a black or working class white man.

    These feminists demonize blacks even Tiger Woods, Michael Jackson and now Bill Cosby reinforcing the stereotypes of black males which feed into the mainstream and mix into a potent volatile race hatred cocktail.

    Last year when Devi Khabraghade the Indian diplomat was arrested on a flimsy complaint by her maid, the US authorities “cavity searched” Khobraghade amidst her protestations and her claims to diplomatic immunity to which she was entitled (or at least her dignity as a human being). The American feminists who are part of this narrative of racial equality failed to say anything.

    We cannot as people stand by and allow the US to run riot over us all. Too many Malaysians who the Tun’s policies rescued from the gutters to the middle classes have forgotten what dignity and freedom means.

    It appears many have come out of the gutter to the middle class but have not she their gutter mentality when laving the gutter bringing it with them to the rest of us instead.

  111. Joseph Jun 23,2015 10:22 AM

    Good one Tun M. Many fail to realise that in many places in Malaysia especially the Chinese, Malay and Indian can sit at a table, joke around, drink coffee and still exchange life ideas despite the current state of the country which points otherwise based on the political status.

  112. Praxis Jun 23,2015 10:08 AM

    If we include attaining some minimal standards of governance in our objectives, have we really succeeded? How do we admit to high office people whose motives, modus operandi, capabilities/merits are suspect or even base?
