Why can't the BN-government trust Malaysians?

UPDATE: RPK released at 9.30 am this morning.

It seems the police force is the silver bullet to solve all your problems. They "arrest" bloggers who light candles, use military grade C4, ransacking houses for computers and blog postings and (if needed be) give you the occasional black eye.

Malaysiakini reports:

Two police reports have been lodged against Bukit Gelugor DAP MP Karpal Singh over his alleged seditious remark against the Sultan of Perak.

Source: Malaysiakini
Folks, the PM mentioned the people were angry at Karpal Singh for what he said, it was the people's prompting that made him ask his UMNO rep to lodge a police report and on MSM we see pro-UMNO dudes lining up at the police station to lodge their reports. PM say its the people' will to see Karpal Singh in police custody for speaking words bordering on "seditious".

But are we really angry or is it just a select few (trying to win points with the rakyat) that are trumpeting a storm in a teacup?

Who took away the power from the sultans? Who help erase Malaysian history and rewrote history as we know it? Who can say one thing, forget and say another thing later on?

It sickens me that UMNO is now telling people that it is the shield that protects the Sultans when in the 1980s, under Tun Mahathir, it was UMNO who weaken the Sultans of their powers. Shame on you!

Now, UMNO is using the police to send various ones to jail under an act that is was written in 1948. Plus, UMNO is so full of themselves that they are claiming a hell lot of things.

Mengenai isu Raja Petra pula, Abdullah berkata: "Kalau dah langgar undang-undang tentu ada tindakan terhadap Raja Petra. Setelah ada aduan, tentulah tindakan diambil.

"Kita ada undang-undang dan mesti menghormati undang-undang. (Bila) melanggar undang-undang, tentu tindakan diambil terhadap orang itu," tambahnya.

The term "breaking the law" is such an easy term to throw at people. Did RPK or Karpal Singh break the law? Remember, their remarks were deemed "seditious" and they can only be "seditious" unless proven in a court of law. So by pure logic, RPK and Karpal Singh are innocent until proven guilty by a court of law. But the way it is being played out to us is that they are guilty and getting them to court is for mere formality sake, it is played to us that the rakyat has found these two guilty and we (the rakyat) told the police to arrest them.

Why wasn't a police report made when Keris-Man kissed the keris? Why weren't those Terengganu UMNO MPs arrested for insulting the Sultan of Terengganu who happens to be the Agong? Why weren't some MPs arrested for calling portions of the rakyat monkeys, goblok, prostitutes and the like? Are not all these things, "seditious" in nature, a manner that can incite anger among the populace and could spark tension among the various communities in Malaysia?

The police will argue, we do not arrest anyone unless told by the AG office. But the AG offic sides with the current government and the current government is an UMNO government. Wouldn't that make you (the police) the enforcement arm of the ruling UMNO lead government?

Why can't this government just trust it's people? The more you repress the people, the more the people would speak out. Why not allow people the freedom to express themselves without fear of reprisals?

TRUST is earned and frankly speaking I am beginning to lose trust in this government. What is the point of government, if those in office only look out for themselves? Do I freaking care about all the childish arguments they have in parliament? Argue all you want, fix the leaking roof cause seriously I think everyone is leaking brain fluid.

What I want to know is, will I have enough to survive till next year? Would my children be able to afford living in Malaysia? Would my children's safety be guaranteed when they have families with the crime rate rising in tandem with oil prices? Will my children have equal opportunities to pursue their dreams? Can I sleep in peace knowing the my voice is respected by the government even when I speak ill of them? 

Do I have the luxury to know that the government is mature enough to take criticism in the face and to prove us wrong not by putting us in prison or shutting us up but by advancing this beautiful nation forward?

Stop policing us and start trusting us because what is the point of democracy when you do not trust the people; not only when they say good but also when they say bad. Stop trying to talk for us, you do not know our thoughts. Stop second guessing what you think is best for us, we also want a say in matters. What is good for Semenanjung Malaysia may not be good for Sabah and Sarawak. Don't scam us by thinking we will buy into your ideas without first saying something about it. I'm really sick of people showcasing themselves as being superior yet forgetting that for Malaysia to be Malaysia it takes three entities - Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak.

Hitler was head of the Nazi party and they eventually took control of everything that was German pre-WWW2. The Nazi party became the Nazi army, police and the identity of Germany. They propagated the idea of a supreme Aryan race and it was their role to wipe out all other inferior race and eventually govern the world. A political entity took on a military role and policing role and brought about one of the most darkest moments in human history.

Sounds familiar?

I wish to point out that the Orang Asli, not the malays, are the original inhabitants of Malaysia. Most of the malay Malaysians came from Sumatra and other parts of Indonesia. They only migrated here much earlier than the Chinese and Indian Malaysians. It does not mean they deserve privileges or rights just because they were the pioneer immigrants.

It is true that there have been abuses under the name of malay special rights and it is the duty of the malays in particular, and all Malaysians in general, to stop it so that the rightful malays get their rights, and the non-malays get their rights as citizens of this country.

It is a sad thing to say, but I do believe the main thing that is holding back malays is not the Chinese or the Indians, but the malays themselves. That is why Badawi and Mahathir have been quoted as telling to throw away crutches and work hard to face the challenges of globalisation.

The malay and others of the same mind should learn to stand on their own feet rather than claim for special rights and privileges. The world is becoming globalised and if they don't change their attitude, they will only become beggars in their own country.

As for the malays who insist on hiding behind the veil of malay special rights - you have lost the respect of non-malays a long time ago.

We also suspect that the current situation will, unfortunately, get worse if no action is taken now. Why? Because our kids in school hardly mix with each other. They will grow up with little understanding of their fellow Malaysians, and with the suspicions that exist, it will be worse.

The truth of the matter is that polarisation in Malaysia is caused by the discriminatory practises of the government - especially after the NEP - rather than vernacular education.

The NEP is upheld for the rich and not the poor in Malaysia.

Whether we admit it or not, the problem is that the special rights and privileges given have now resulted in only a selected few malays getting richer and richer. The bulk of the malays, especially in the rural areas are not benefiting from the system.

Poor people are poor people, rich people are rich people - no matter which race they come from.

The poor in Malaysia must be served but I am sure all taxpayers feel that this should be done in a manner which is blind to age, ethnicity, gender and religion.

What is wrong with extending help to all deserving citizens based on merits and needs regardless of race?

The Malaysia problem is that rich do become richer. And because of the political system, the players are the same.

Out of control - this is all I can say about any type of enforcement and the level of corruption in Malaysia. No idea what Badawi has done in his four years in office but judging from the ground, I guess nothing much.

If you have ever heard of the simple saying, "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach him how to fish and he eats for a lifetime." you will realise that many non-malays have learned how to fish but the government is still handing out fishes to the malays. One day the fish will run out.

If you want to say discrimination is here in the US, yes, of course it is. Can you name a country where it doesn't happen? But let me tell you one thing - if you go looking for it, you will find it. But in Malaysia, you don't have to go look for it because it seeks you out, slaps you in your face every which way you turn, and is sanctioned by law!

Official figures have more than one million Chinese Malaysians emigrating over the past 25 years. Why did they emigrate? I am sure the government knows.

For most professionals, living abroad has its own ups and downs. But you get dignity, fair treatment and respect for your ability. You get a voice too. And ears to hear you.

Brain drain by the tank-loads is what we get. Every single year, Malaysia loses people who could potentially contribute to the country immensely.

So malay, you may keep your rights and perpetuate them. Such things are archaic. Who loses in the end? Your country, which should have been a first world one by today.

I sympathize with those that have benefited from the NEP, but the bad news is that the price he pays for his progress is much higher than what he pays for his benefit.

These special rights and privileges were once a necessity for them to move forward. Today, after many decades, they find themselves still standing in the same place.

It is a shame that our history has been constantly twisted so that our younger generation has no understanding of Malaysia's foundation and its true aspiration.

It is arguable that if not for the contributions of the Chinese and Indian Malaysians who helped in the development of this country tremendously, Malaysia would probably be in same category like Indonesia or the Philippines, if not worst.

To improve the malays lot, more have to be made to work in private companies where competition is real and what count is your ability. If special rights only help malays to become government servants, then all the more reason not to invoke special rights.

But of course, the present ruling elite drunken with wealth, will continue to fight this dream to ensure that Malaysia is kept divided so that BN can continue to rule.

Alternatively, Malaysians may begin to realise the dream of a new Malaysia.

The bitter truth is that the majority of this nation don't see the need to change things yet and until then, we can do little about it.

The bottom line with present day globalisation is this: compete on a level-playing field or you will lose. Plain and simple.

List of racial discriminations in Malaysia, practiced by government as well as government agencies. This list is an open secret. Best verified by government itself because it got the statistics.

This list is not in the order of importance, that means the first one on the list is not the most important and the last one on the list does not mean least important.

This list is a common knowledge to a lot of Malaysians, especially those non-malays (Chinese, Ibans, Kadazans, Orang Asli, Tamils, etc) who were being racially discriminated.

Figures in this list are estimates only and please take it as a guide only. Government of Malaysia has the most correct figures. Is government of Malaysia too ashamed to publish their racist acts by publishing racial statistics?

This list cover a period of about 50 years since independence (1957).

List of racial discriminations (Malaysia):

(1) Out of all the 5 major banks, only one bank is multi-racial, the rest are controlled by malays

(35) 3 million Indonesians had migrated into Malaysia and became Malaysian citizens with bumis status

(36) 600000 are the Chinese and Indian Malaysians with red IC and were rejected repeatedly when applying for citizenship for 40 years. Perhaps 60% of them had already passed away due to old age. This shows racism of how easily Indonesians got their citizenship compare with the Chinese and Indians

(42) 3000 mosques/surau were built in all housing estates throughout Malaysia since 1970. No churches, no temples are required to be built in housing estates

(47) 10 times, at least, malays (especially Umno) had threatened to massacre the Chinese Malaysians using May 13 since 1969

(48) 20 constituencies won by DAP would not get funds from the government to develop. Or these Chinese majority constituencies would be the last to be developed

(49) 100 constituencies (parliaments and states) had been racistly re-delineated so Chinese voters were diluted that Chinese candidates, particularly DAP candidates lost in election since 1970s

(50) Only 3 out of 12 human rights items are ratified by Malaysia government since 1960

(54) 20 cases every year whereby Chinese drivers who accidentally knocked down malays were seriously assaulted or killed by malays

(55) 12% is what ASB/ASN got per annum while banks fixed deposit is only about 3.5% per annum

There are hundreds more racial discriminations in Malaysia to add to this list of "colossal" racism. It is hope that the victims of racism will write in to expose racism.

Malaysia government should publish statistics showing how much malays had benefited from the "special rights" of malays and at the same time tell the statistics of how much other minority races are being discriminated.

Hence, the responsibility lies in the Malaysia government itself to publish unadulterated statistics of racial discrimination.

If the Malaysia government hides the statistics above, then there must be some evil doings, immoral doings, shameful doings and sinful doings, like the Nazi, going on onto the non-malays of Malaysia.

Civilized nation, unlike evil Nazi, must publish statistics to show its treatment on its minority races. This is what Malaysia must publish……….

We are asking for the publication of the statistics showing how "implementation of special rights of malays" had inflicted colossal racial discrimination onto non-malays.

There are hundreds more racial discriminations in Malaysia to add to this list of "colossal" racism. It is hope that the victims of racism will write in to expose racism.

Malaysia government should publish statistics showing how much malays had benefited from the "special rights" of malays and at the same time tell the statistics of how much other minority races are being discriminated.

Hence, the responsibility lies in the Malaysia government itself to publish unadulterated statistics of racial discrimination.

If the Malaysia government hides the statistics above, then there must be some evil doings, immoral doings, shameful doings and sinful doings, like the Nazi, going on onto the non-malays of Malaysia.

Civilized nation, unlike evil Nazi, must publish statistics to show its treatment on its minority races. This is what Malaysia must publish……….

We are asking for the publication of the statistics showing how "implementation of special rights of malays" had inflicted colossal racial discrimination onto non-malays.
