Dream of a modern Islamic leader

Dream of a modern Islamic leader

I respect and pray for you especially because of your words, “All Malaysians are equal and all Muslims are equal also”. It is a sharp contrast from an unIslamic Had Hari leaders’ bigoted view even on other Muslims different from his favoured races. Although my late religious leader from Burma, who was your roommate wrote an introduction letter to you I was scared to see or send to you as I may be marked as anti-establishment foreigner. I heard that your friend had passed away in Burma, in Bone Oh near Mandalay. He was a famous state Ulama of Mandalay Division.

I had wrote a letter to former PM Paklah and SIL praising his version of Islam even quoting the salient points in his lecture at the Australia and Germany universities and requesting to accept or include the Burmese Muslims in his version of Islam. Blessing in disguise, they even never bother to reply or response at all. Are they ignorant that the Christians there just listen to them as a respect only.

The final straw that break the back-bone of the Had Hari was_

  1. that person’s acceptance of few hundred thousand of the ECONOMIC MIGRANTS in Sabah issuing various ICs in December 2008
  2. but defending the anti-Muslim SPDC’s Human Rights violations at UNGA on 24th of the same month
  3. and preaching his deviant form of Islam Had Hari at the interview with Bangkok Post to push out Muslim Rohingya into the deep Indian Ocean to let them die.

Allah had rightly punished him and would punish any leader who dare to continue with his unjust, inhumane and un-Islamic Had Hari.

Please read my interview with Tun Dr M and Datuk Seri Dr Wan Aziza Wan Ismail to know how great leaders are humble enough and how arrogant those two Had Hari leaders.

The Right to a Basic Standard of Life in ISLAM

Regarding the economic rights, the Holy Quran says:

And in their wealth there is acknowledged right for the needy and destitute. (51:19)

Anyone who needs help, irrespective of the race, religion or citizenship has a right in the property and wealth of the Muslims.

If you are in a position to help and a needy person asks you for help or if you come to know that he is in need, then it is your duty to help him.

Where is the Minister of Justice, Minister in the PM’s office Tan Seri Nazri Aziz, who even seemed to be championing for the Rohingyas, even mocking the Home Ministers that, HM did not know but he and PM’s security dpt had already arranged and approved all.

YAB DSAAB also acknowledged that Myanmar SPDC is hopeless and had even killed their own monks and Japanese photographer. But later even persuaded the other ASEAN leaders not to take action on the generals which was secretly recorded by Singaporeans.

After Tun Dr M introduced ‘San Oo Aung’ at the Perdana foundation function to his dear wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasma Mohd Ali, she commented to me in-front of the VIPs about the alleged kidnapping of a Malaysian by a Rohingya family. She even added her own experience of Rohingya beggars in-front of a shopping mall.

Allow migrants a chance at the M’sian Dream

My letter to the editor of Malaysiakini

May 28, 08 4:26pm

The present Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, commented that if Singapore continued with the old procedure of giving citizenship, Singapore would become an old folks’ home for its Permanent Resident holders. So he started offering PR to professionals who had completed two years’ work in Singapore. It is therefore possible to get Singapore citizenship within five years. Thus, new Singapore citizens could sever their umbilical cords from their old countries and give full loyalty to Singapore. Continue reading

Is DAP means unDemocratic Aperthoid Pots, calling the kettle black?

Is DAP means unDemocratic Aperthoid Pots,

calling the kettle black?

According to a very short report in the 09-05-2008 Star News paper, Malaysian Home Minister answered the MP Karpal Singh’s question that looks like he wanted to prohibit the foreigners’ entrance into Kuala Lumpur.

The Star Online News, “Can’t stop foreign workers from going into city”

Friday May 9, 2008

THE Government cannot stop foreign workers from going out into the city, particularly during public holidays and festive seasons, reported Tamil Nesan.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said they could not be stopped from doing so as long as they abided by the law.

(Comment: TQ very much YB Datuk Seri for your kind heart, fairness and justice. With this Datuk Seri shown that you and BN are much farsighted and better than those Xenophobic and Apartheid  DAP stalwarts who forgot their past history and where they came from.).

 

 

In his written reply to Karpal Singh (DAP – Bukit Gelugor) at the Dewan Rakyat on Wednesday, he said there should be continuous enforcement by the Immigration Department and the police to ensure they did not create a disturbance or engage in immoral activities. Karpal Singh also wanted to know whether the Government was prepared to stem the influx of foreign workers in the capital.

Syed Hamid said the Government had taken steps to control the intake of foreign workers. He said the huge presence of foreign workers in the Klang Valley was due to the concentration of economic activities in the area.

> Makkal Osai reported that India’s Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav would arrive in Malaysia next week to seal the RM4bil Seremban-Gemas double-tracking project with Malaysian authorities.

The Government awarded the construction contract to Indian Railway Construction Corporation last year.

“Nasi sudah jadi bubur”. Jangan bising. Makan bersama saja.

 

Many foreigners entered Kuala Lumpur and not only got citizenships but their grand children are active in so called “(Un) Democratic” Action Party, even elected as MPs. Ha, ha!  
DAP used the “Democratic” word in its name. Do you understand that in all the true Democracies there must be respect of Human Rights?

Foreigners are Humans also and we have the right to enter KL. If you don’t like, you are free to leave KL and go and stay back in Punjab, India. (Just kidding with the words you used to angry when some of the BN men used to you.) You could still stay in your own home or balik Kg. i.e. balik Pulau Pinang.

DAP Indians, for your information, please read the following:

Do you know that the origin of Malaysia’s Orang Aslis? Some group of those Malaysia’s Orang Aslis are desendents of MONs of Burma who migrated down and lost contact with present Mons of Myanmar.  

Please read  the Mon-Khmer languages in Wikipedia encyclopedia_

The Mon-Khmer languages are the autochthonous language family of Southeast Asia. Together with the Munda languages of India, they are one of the two traditional primary branches of the Austroasiatic family. However, several recent classifications have abandoned this dichotomy, either reducing the scope of Mon-Khmer (Diffloth 2005) or breaking it up entirely (or equivalently reclassifying Munda as a branch of Mon-Khmer: Peiros 1998). See Austroasiatic languages.

Mon-Khmer languages

This classification is based on Gérard Diffloth‘s widely cited 1974 Encyclopedia Britannica article.

I don’t wish to stress much that your home island was once under Burmese. And in the history, some of your states and even your Lording big boss Thai Kings were under Burmese Kings and had given yearly presents.

Just because our country is poor and we are working legally and illegally, don’t look down on us too much.

After all even if we ignore the religious facts that God/Allah had given this world to all the human, with your ASEAN Charter, you all are aiming at ASEAN UNION.

Just read back the  Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew and Tun Dr Mahathiers’ recent interview and comments during the last couple of days only.

Singapore’s Lee Says Southeast Asia Will Be Like European Union

 May 5 (Bloomberg) — Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father of Singapore, predicted that the Association of Southeast Asian Nations eventually will allow people and money to move freely within the region like the European Union.

EU-type Asean possible but not now, says Dr Mahathir

BERNAMA news in NST

Asean, the grouping of 10 Southeast Asian nations, may be able to emulate the European Union (EU) but this is unlikely to come true in the near future, former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has predicted.
In time, maybe we can introduce a common currency. But this must not be done by doing away with local currencies. The Ringgit can be used domestically while the common currency for trade between the 10 countries. That would be a start.

We can also start sharing airspace or introduce a single passport.

  1. So look at those great statemen’s ideas.

  2. Don’t try to stop the time wheel, DAP.

  3. DAP’s papa, PAP is much more idealistic and progressive.

DSAI should control and teach those Xenophobic DAPs.

Post Script.

DAP, a mirror version of MCA + MIC?

Malaysiakini’s Josh Hong | May 9, 08 11:23am

No doubt, our solidarity should be with Raja Petra Kamaruddin now that the man has become the first victim of BN’s attempt to strike back. The ruling coalition is again showing its (broken) fangs. But could it be a perfect plot between some at the highest echelons of the federal government and RPK to ensure Najib Razak remains in the spotlight?

Some two weeks before he chose to go to jail rather than posting bail, RPK ran an article on ‘Malaysia Today’, entitled Is DAP showing its true colours? which I guess has gone unnoticed by many of MT’s diehard fans who are usually more enticed by RPK’s incessant conspiracy theories about Umno.

But the piece is highly recommended, especially if one is deeply concerned as to whether Pakatan Rakyat (PR) would serve as a viable alternative to the shambolic BN.

RPK is from a rare breed of royalty whose writings consistently strike a chord of common feelings, which makes him a thorn in BN’s side, more so in the case of Najib and Rosmah recently.

Just last week, I met a Chinese Malaysian by chance here in Bangkok, who turned out to be an online forum organiser. He talked profusely about the need for DAP to transform itself to make the party relevant in the long run, referring to PKR’s article every now and again.

raja petra court case 060508 stumpedI cannot agree with him more.

Just look at Karpal Singh. I had wanted to include him as one of the political dinosaurs that I made fun of a few weeks ago, but chose to delete the paragraphs just to give myself more time to observe the DAP stalwart. Well, Karpal did not disappoint me.

At a time when everyone is looking forward to a more vibrant, intelligent and informative culture of debate in the Dewan Rakyat, Karpal in his usual stuntman-style raised trivial issues on the very first day of the parliamentary session. To me, his performance was only reminiscent of the previous parliament, which was everything about stealing the show but nothing about substance.

With dozens of newly-elected lawmakers on the opposition bench, a good number of them professionals from various fields, Karpal seems to be suffering from some identity crisis, fearing that the presence of the young and smart newbies might eclipse him.

Poking a beehive
 

Like some MCA leaders who are bereft of new ideas, Karpal continues to harp on the Islamic state issue, apparently still very used to the old mentality, and finding it hard to come to terms with the new political realities.
True, Pas has its bigots like Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, the Kelantan Menteri Besar who often sees the need to ‘protect’ women through a strict religious code. But if the DAP really hopes to go far in Malaysian politics, tit-for-tat over Islam will only hasten its irrelevance.
 

 

Meanwhile, Karpal’s relish in tackling the issue of constitutional monarchy head-on only gives more ammunition to the BN and alienates the Malay constituency further.

Leave it to whatever mechanism there is within the PR to iron out the ideological differences. If Karpal cannot see the paramount importance of maintaining a coherent coalition while in opposition, don’t expect him to hold his tongue if he is ever made a cabinet minister one fine day. His egoistic self and confrontational rhetoric would only ensure a short-lived DAP presence in an alternative government.

Very often in politics, it is sensibility, rather than seniority, that earns one respect.

Karpal’s lack of generosity is also seen in his objection to the appointment of Lee Kah Choon, a former Gerakan leader, as director of Penang Development Corporation. Does he not realise the DAP needs all the talent it can get to make its rule in Penang sustainable?

In government, personal stunts are a luxury. It is high time PR learns how to put the Tiger of Jelutong on a leash.

abdul razak baginda altantuya case 040607 karpal singhKarpal is not the only DAP leader who is caught in this post-election dilemma. Lim Guan Eng, in his first week as chief minister of Penang, also stirred up unnecessary controversy over the so-called bumiputera privileges.

Instead of poking a beehive, Lim could have avoided the messy aftermath by reiterating the importance of transparency and fairness in administering the state. Obviously, the new chief minister felt that he owed his job to the Chinese voters but forgot that he is now the leader of a state in which close to half of the population is Malay.

Lim’s teething pains can be witnessed from his difficulties in adjusting himself. Last week, he ticked off the Coalition for Good Governance (CGG), an umbrella group of NGOs that came out with a report that was not too favourableof the DAP-led government in Penang.

Lim complained like a child throwing a tantrum that the CGG, as like the BN, was purposely targeting his administration!

But the rakyat clearly did not elect Lim only to be told to adhere to discredited benchmarks set by the BN. Would Lim rid himself of the persecution mentality to make us happy, even for just a while?

But the DAP’s biggest problem lies in the fact that many of its leaders seem to believe they are indebted predominantly to the Chinese, and then the Indians. Hence their habit of doing things that reek of ethnic populism.

‘Ethnic dignity’?
 
Teng Chang Khim is an able politician that I respect. And my sympathies were with him when he was overlooked in the recent Selangor state exco lineup, most probably a victim of factionalism.

But I was most disappointed when Teng vowed never to put on a songkok, and challenged the MCA legislators who did so to apologise to the Chinese community.

Why pick on the songkok? Why should a Chinese be regarded as well-educated and civilised when he is in a Western suit but compromising on ‘ethnic dignity’ when he puts on a baju Melayu?

Which Chinese Malaysian nowadays, really, is not a traitor to Chinese culture except for the few days of Lunar New Year celebration when everyone loves to be seen in a ‘traditional’ costume just to satisfy everyone else’s exotic curiosity?

dap budget forum 2008 100907 liew chin tongHow ironic that while Khir Toyo finds himself the opposition leader having ambitiously announced his desire to see ‘zero opposition’ in the state assembly, Teng now looks somewhat uncomfortable wearing a songkok as the newly appointed Dewan Speaker. In politics, one must always be prepared to eat humble pie.

Liew Chin Tong (pix) is among the most promising of DAP’s talents. He also has all the potential to move the party beyond the ethnic limitations. Before being elected as the MP for Bukit Bendera, Liew reminded us that 80% of the 4.9 million young Malaysians yet to register as voters were Malay. I concur with him that the BN government is reluctant to introduce automatic voter registration knowing full well that many of the young Malays may not necessarily vote Umno.

But my question is: with Indian and Chinese populations dwindling proportionately, would the DAP be able to capture a significant segment of the young Malay vote to really move away from the fringe of Malaysia politics to the center?

Liew certainly looks best suited for the job given his broadmindedness and macro worldview. He is also unencumbered by unnecessary ethnic sentiments. Provided, of course, he does not end up another victim of factionalism within the party. The DAP’s undisputed contribution to Malaysian democracy should be rightly acknowledged; so should its chequered history of internal power struggles which now deserves a sizeable space in the National Archives also.

The longest-serving opposition party has been given a new lease of life, albeit unexpectedly. Yet the litmus test of its longevity depends on how the party can transform itself into a truly multiracial force to rival Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR). It is also contingent on the party’s ability to rein in factionalism.

Any failure to rise to these two challenges will only make the DAP a mirror version of the MCA + MIC in a PR government, and we all know how these two race-based parties and their leaders fared in the last election.

 

Deafening silence from Malaysia regarding Myanmar Cyclone?

Deafening silence from Malaysia regarding Myanmar Cyclone?

 

First of all I wish to apologize if I am wrong.

 

If Malaysian Government had already sent the condolence note to Myanmar, I am sorry for writing this.

 

If Malaysian Government, GLCs (government Linked companies), NST, TV3, NTV7, RTM and NGOs (esp. government affiliated) had already started a campaign to help Myanmar, please accept my  apology for wrongly writing this posting.

 

If you all haven’t done anything, it is shame on you.

 

We don’t want a cent from you Kaisu Malaysia!

 

 

We know that we are not Orang Puteh (Whiteman) , no Arab blood and have no Malay-Indonesian blood. We are ALWAYS discriminated in your country.

 

Never mind if you do not wish to recognize the undocumented workers/migrants and asylum seekers.

 

During the great disaster in Myanmar, I hope if Malaysian government could do the followings to help us without spending a cent.

 

Please announce amnesty on all the Myanmar/Burmese undocumented workers/migrants and asylum seekers including those already in the detention camp. (At least if they could work and earn, they could help their families, relatives and friends.)

 

You could put a time limit for example six months to one year.

It is shameful that you are heartless to continue arresting and some of your agents are harassing them daily.

17 Myanmar Illegal Immigrants Held In Kelantan

BERNAMA, RANTAU PANJANG, May 6 (Bernama) — The Anti- Smuggling Unit (UPP) Tuesday arrested 17 Myanmar nationals without valid travel documents in Kampung Kempas, Machang, as they were being smuggled into the country by a syndicate.

Kelantan UPP commander Mazlan Che Hamid said the Myanmar nationals, aged between 16 and 30 years, had been turned over to the Immigration authorities.

He said the van driver, a Malaysian, stopped the vehicle by the roadside and fled after realising that it was being tailed by UPP personnel at 4.30 am.

The UPP personnel had followed the van from Kampung Kedap here, some 40 km from Machang, he said.

OUTSTANDING STUDENT FAILS TO OBAIN LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP

Dear Norman Fernandez

Please change your xenophobic words! What’s wrong with those Bangladeshis, Sudanese or even Myanmaris? Are they occupying your house? Married your sister? Married your daughter? You are spoiling your good article or good point by attacking others unnecessarily. God forbade if DAP rule here, it may be same as Bloody Singapore. Discriminate all non Chinese. (Sorry not all others They lick the feet of Orang Puteh, Japanese etc.)

It is funny that you, as an older migrant, discriminating on new or recent migrant in an article complaining about racial discrimination you suffered as a migrant!

 

Pot calling the kettle black?

 

Do you really realize your dilemma?

Do you know about the racial discrimination?

The definition of Xenophobia?

Ever read the UN Human Right Declaration?

Ever read about the real Democracy? Migrants’ Rights?

What kind of politician are you?

If DAP win and form government, you will be worse than previous and present leaders in the Government?

We rely now on foreign doctors often from third rate countries and who can hardly speak the local language and some hardly look convincing nor confident as a doctor.

Shit, another Xenophobia again!

Ha Ha, your country afford to pay peanuts only and you are expecting what? Your doctors’ salary scale is lower then an ambulance drivers’ salary scale in the west. Do you think prestigious doctors would come and work here? But anyway we, hundreds of Burmese doctors are teaching (lecturing) in your various universities (Public and private)  training all Malaysians including Chinese. By the way don’t look down on us. I had seen many of your great local doctors even could not name the bones in forearm and hand! Sometimes confusing hand and foot bones! And some of them wrongly thought that the young child’s growing bone end as the fracture. I don’t mean to look down on local doctors; there are numerous great Malaysian doctors out there.

You mentioned British whiz kid turning whore. Then why did you conveniently forgot the Chinese whizkid’s suicide story?

[Picture+055.jpg]

Lee Jia Hui (pic), 19 scored 11 1A’s in the SPM examination. The Sunday Star, April 20, reported that he had for the last six months applied for scholarship to pursue his studies oversea from various local agencies such as Public Services Department and Bank Negara. He was unsuccessful.

Interestingly and luckily, he has now obtained offers of scholarships from renowned institution such as Harvard University, Princeton, Darthmoth, Cornell, as well as Wesleyan Asian Freeman Scholarship. Imagine prestigious and renowned foreign institutions are falling over to offer scholarships and yet at home he is unable to obtain a scholarship.

Now that Lee has secured a multitude offers of scholarship, it can also be certain that Lee would be another talent lost by Malaysia. With a degree from a prestigious institution, he would surely receive offers of employment even before he finishes his studies. I just wonder what will be the motivation for him to return home. The lifestyle he would have become accustomed to, the employment opportunities, remuneration and perks may make him not to come back to Malaysia. Frankly, why would he want to.

Singapore government has for a long time offered Asean Scholarship to top students from Asean countries to study in Singapore. Now, Singapore has gone even further. It now offers scholarships even for for Primary and Secondary students. The multitudes of scholarships given are designed to lure top students from the region and particularly from Malaysia to study in Singapore. These students after having being used to the Singapore life- style and work ethics, more often than not would then stay on and work in Singapore. Many raise families and ultimately become Singapore citizens. The very least they become Singapore Permanent Residents while their children becoming Singapore citizens.

Singapore has found ways to entice and retain talent while Malaysia on the other hand seems to be indifferent to the loss of talents.

After all the loss and brain drain can be replenished with Bangladeshis, Sudanese or even Myanmaris.

Xenophobic DAP ! Whats wrong with those Bangladeshis, Sudanese or even Myanmaris? Are they occupying your house? Married your sister? Married your daughter? You are spoiling your good article or good point by attacking others unnecessarily. God forbade if DAP rule here, it may be same as Bloody Singapore. Discriminate all non Chinese. (Sorry not all others e.g. Orang Puteh, Japanese etc. are virtually worshipped there)

Little wonder Singapore who once was on par with Malaysia has transformed into a first world and much of it is because of Malaysian talent who left our shores to help transform Singapore to become what it is today. Malaysia hardly made attempts to plug the brain drain or even ensure that our talents return. We just let them go and in the process lost them.

It is said that virtually all the students from the top class in Foon Yew Chinese school is headhunted by Singapore with offers of education scholarships. While the UEC examination certificate is not recognized for entry into local universities, yet it is recognized by Singapore (and many other countries) and students with good UEC results often receive offers of scholarship from Singapore. Has Petronas, Bank Negara or even Khazanah Nasional even provided a scholarship for a top student from Foon Yew Chinese School ?

The government is now considering sending a second man to space. Imagine the millions which is going to be spent when no one has a clue what benefit we have received from the first mission, apart from having the distinction of being the first Malay and Malaysian to go into space. The government even once was prepared to spend millions just to build a high performance sports centre in England. Luckily the local council rejected the application.

The point is this, the government readily finds money to spend on grandiose projects but find it difficult to provide scholarships for outstanding students. Why can’t the government, government linked agencies and companies find ways to help outstanding students with scholarship. What is even more sad, is that very often Non Malay students find it virtually impossible to obtain scholarship from government or government linked agencies and companies, yet are often receipients of scholarship from overseas universities. Importantly, it is to be noted that these scholarships are often secured on merit.

I still remember how a couple of years ago government linked companies were falling over each other to provide scholarship for a British whiz kid whose only link to Malaysia was that her mother was born in Malaysia. Now the whiz kid is a 130 sterling pounds per hour whore.

Then why did you conveniently forgot the Chinese whizkid’s suicide story?

Malaysia through the decades have lost thousands of outstanding students to other countries and we cannot continue to lose talent and let the brain drain go on.

In a globalised world we must retain our outstanding students while at the same time source for outstanding foreign talents. We must make available scholarships for our top students and more importantly every top student irrespective of race must have an opportunity.

We rely now on foreign doctors often from third rate countries and who can hardly speak the local language and some hardly look convincing nor confident as a doctor.

Ha Ha,  your country afford to pay peanuts only, your doctors’ salary scale is lower then an ambulance drivers’ salary scale in the west. Do you think prestigious doctors would come and work here? But anyway we, hundreds of Burmese doctors are teaching (lecturing) in your various universities training all Malaysians including Chinese.

By the way don’t look down on us. I had seen many of your great local doctors, who even could not name the bones in forearm and hand! Sometimes confusing hand and foot bones! I don’t mean to look down on local doctors; there are numerous great Malaysian doctors there.

 

Could we not have sent abroad on scholarship more Malaysian student of all races to study medicine. I know one Indian family whose child is studying medicine in Bandung, Indonesia. The poor parents are virtually begging from office to office for money to educate their child.

Let us be realistic, if the country treats a top student like a step-child and alienates him from opportunities, would he still be motivated to return and serve the country. This is what has happened and still happens. Many who has gone abroad still has family ties and feelings for the country but government policies and alienation of opportunities makes them not having any desire to return.

Malaysians pay tax, Petronas makes billions, government and government linked agencies and companies make money and government poor millions bailing out government linked companies. Yet, outstanding students and particularly non malay students cannot secure scholarships easily. What the government, government agencies and government linked companies must do is to provide scholarships for outstanding Malaysians and importantly irrespective of race. What has happened to Lee Jia Hui should not have happen and must never happen again.

Burmese detainees torch Lenggeng detention centre

Malaysiakini news

At least 60 Burmese immigrants rioted in the Lenggeng detention centre in Negri Sembilan today, torching a building after failing to win asylum to a third country.

The group initially gathered outside their block at the detention and tried to bring down the perimeter fence, local state police chief Osman Abdullah was quoted as saying by the daily Star newspaper website.

“The authorities tried talking to them but a short while later, they turned violent and then gained entry into the office and set it ablaze,” he added.

Osman said about 200 police and security personnel were deployed to bring the situation under control.

The Lenggeng detention facility houses 820 illegal immigrants, of which 218 are from Burma, he said.

“We are still investigating the cause, but at this point in time all I can say is that they were unhappy because they heard that their application to a third country had been rejected,” Osman added.

Officials at the detention centre could not be reached for comment.

Nowadays we heard a lot of antiforeigner rhetoric from the ex-Foreign Minister almost every day.

 I hope he could remember the followings_

  • After ? Chinese-women nude squat
  • After ill treatment of Indian IT experts at Brickfield
  • After the Indonesian detainees’ riots
  • After the Indonesian martial arts referee man-handled
  • Irene Fernandez’s effective defence in the courts
  • Dozens of anti-Malaysia protests at Malaysian consulates in Indonesia and India various
  • Cancellation of Malaysian contracts in India
  • Indian and Chinese Governments cancelled the sheduled visit of Malaysian Ministers 
  • Malaysian HMs, FM and BN Secretary Generals later apologized to the effected countries

As a Home Minister of less than 30 million country, you are attacking more than 6000 million foreigners. You should understand that for the eyes of those 6000 million foreigners, your citizens are foreigners also.

Please think GLOBAL or Glocal according to your YAB Deputy PM’s advice.

 We know that you are personally a very kind-hearted person.

But we are worried with your every day foreigner bashing stunts. You should not hope to get back the lost support of Malaysian citizens by just stroking the patriotism with the narrow minded Xenophobic anti-foreign provocations. Although it is the wellknown short-cut to garner support by inciting the ultra-nationalistic spirits and blind patriotism, you should just look back the lost of Indian and Chinese votes in the last election.

Don’t play with fire and please kindly stop your Xenophobic, anti-Foreigner war cries. It is very dangerous if the effected foreign countries’ governments revenge with kicking out your citizens, investments and start to boycott the Malaysian products.

SEREMBAN: Sixty Myanmar nationals were involved in a riot at the Lenggeng detention camp for illegals near here, apparently after they were told that their application to move to a third country was unsuccessful.

The rioters, believed to be political refugees, also torched an administrative building and threatened Immigration and Rela personnel with injury in the 10am incident on Monday.

State police chief Datuk Osman Abdullah said the rioters gained entry into the two-storey administrative building which was located in the middle of four blocks housing some 820 male illegals.

“They set fire at the ground floor causing damage to office furniture and computers. We were fortunate that the Fire and Rescue team arrived quickly to put out the flames,” he said when met at the centre.

Osman, who said losses had yet to be estimated, said the authorities were not able to determine who told the rioters that their applications had been rejected.

“The group had gathered outside their block first and tried to bring down a parameter fencing about 8am. The authorities tried talking to them but a short while later, they turned violent and then gained entry into the office and set it ablaze,” he said.

Osman said although there were 218 male Myanmar nationals at the centre, only 60 were involved in the rioting. He said illegals from several other countries living at the camp were not involved.

About 100 police and Federal Reserve Unit personnel and another 100 Rela members were called in to bring the situation under control. Also on duty were some 40 Immigration officers.

Personnel from the Civil Defence department and the health services were also on standby. However, Osman said there were no reports of injuries.

Asked if the rioters were unhappy with the treatement at the centre, Osman said preliminary investigations did not point to this.

“We are still investigating the cause, but at this point in time, all I can say is that they were unhappy because they heard that their application to a third country had been rejected,” he said.

The camp, which also housed 280 female illegals, was handed over by the Prisons Department to the Immigration Dept in January.

Osman said the Immigration and police personnel had begun investigations to establish the leaders involved in the melee.

“We will conduct a thorough probe and act against those involved in the arson as well. They will be charged under the relevant laws,” he said, adding that the rioters were not armed.

News Straits Times news about HM’s anti- Foreigner slanted views. If the criminals are foreigners are just punish according to YOUR LAWS. You should avoid RACIAL PROFILING but could punish with death sentences.

 Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said yesterday some criminal activities were being

 committed by syndicates led by foreigners staying temporarily in the country.

He said strict rules had to be enforced at entry points to assist the authorities, especially the police,

to arrest those carrying out criminal activities.

These include members of syndicates known to be using unsuspecting Malaysian women as drug

couriers overseas.

“It is a sad state of affairs that has hit our country. Local girls are being fooled by members of 

international drug syndicates who promise them handsome payments (for work done overseas),” he

said.

 

Many Malaysian women have been arrested overseas for drug trafficking. Members of some syndicates allegedly offer high paying jobs overseas to the women, who end up unknowingly transporting drugs for the syndicates.

 

 

 

The latest arrests occurred in January in Malta. Dayang Sakienah Mat Lazim from Bukit Payung, Terengganu, and Norfaizura Azura Md Lias, 28, from Pulau Pangkor, Perak, who is three-months pregnant, were said to have been deceived by a local woman whom they met in Kuala Lumpur in November.

“We do not want to accept the arrival of tourists who will become a burden to us,” said Syed Hamid after meeting with Rela members at the Rela Training Centre in Sungai Udang. 

Rela may be upgraded to an enforcement agency

By JASON LIOH

MALACCA: The Home Ministry is mulling over whether to upgrade Rela to an enforcement agency in a move to enhance its enforcement and public order operations.

Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said a draft of the proposal was being finalised for consideration by the Government.

“The role and responsibility of Rela has increased and become even more challenging,” he told reporters after attending a get-together between its officers and leaders at the Rela Southern Zone Training Camp in Sungai Udang yesterday.

“So it is appropriate that the organisation is upgraded to an enforcement agency under the ministry.”

Syed Hamid said the move would allow for better logistical support and funding for facilities, equipment, and uniforms for its personnel.

“We need to give the 508,000 volunteers sufficient training, not only to enhance the capability of Rela but also to further assist the police and immigration. To date, Rela has caught 73,938 illegal immigrants,” he added.

Under the 9th Malaysia Plan, three more Rela training camps would be set up – in Negri Sembilan, Pahang and Perak – to complement the existing camps at Sungai Udang in Malacca, Sungai Petani in Kedah and Tuaran in Sabah.

On Makkai Osai, Syed Hamid reiterated that the decision not to renew the vernacular paper’s licence was taken after thorough consideration.

The Government did not restrict the publication of newspapers as the media had a role to play in society, he said, but cautioned news publications to not create conflict or disharmony among the people,

“Freedom comes with responsibilities. The Government allows ample freedom of speech and practices democracy with fairness and integrity,” he said.

“Think of national interests”, Suaram told by

unjust leader from the Justice Party

On the protest voiced by Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram) on the Selangor-levy plan, he said local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) like Suaram must place priority on national interests and not champion universal human rights and attack the state government for looking after its residents in their own homeland.

Yes, do not champion universal human rights but just look at your party’s name.

Do you stupidly still think that  your party is established for justice to DSAI alone? BUT not for the UNIVERSAL JUSTICE?

Dear DSAI and Datin Seri Dr Wan Aziza, please give an intensive course on Democracy, Human Rights, Justice, Rule of Law, UN Human Right Decleration on this shortsighted person.

If not this MB is morbidly suffering from Myopic astigmatism, a condition in which his eye is affected with myopia (Shortsightedness) in one meridian only: that is on foreigners.

He will later start an anti-Foreigner campaigns_

Now he said foreigners took the work of locals and buy the houses.

Soon he will propose to shut down the Kelang Port to stop exporting goods and petroleum so that Malaysian citizens could enjoy the surplus, unsold, exports. Sure, commodity prices would go down because of unsold, un-exported goods.

Soon he would stop all foreign tourists from entering Selangor to reduce traffic congestion and to give more hotel rooms available to local tourists. Hotel room rates would go down up to the level affordable to all the Malaysian citizens.

Soon he would stop all foreign direct investment to give more opportunity to the locals.

Selfish politicians like him would never think globally.

Selfish politicians usually use national interests as a smokeshield to disguise their cruel deeds.

Selfish and weak politicians always try to exploit or hit the soft spots. Khalid dare not exploit on Malaysian old pendatangs so he is looking the blood of fresh pendatangs.

(Sorry Malaysian Chinese and Malaysian Indians for using this insulting words. I myself was labled like that in my own country and here we all are treated unfairly and unjustly as 10th. Grade foreigners amongst fresh pendatangs)

Selfish politicians always use the (Ultra) Nationalistic sentiments to incite or exploit against Foreigners.

Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim should be controlled by DSAI and Datin Seri Dr Wan Aziza.

Justice Party (I hope Justice for all and not for selected races and citizens only) leader, new Chief Minister Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said foreign workers living and working in Selangor enjoyed all the state’s infrastructure, like good schools, health facilities and roads and the state was just calling for them contribute something in return.

I sensed a déjà vu phenomena while reading Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim’s words_

Former PM Tun Mahathier had also reported to utter these words as a lame excuse when he imposed increased medical fees for the foreigners.

  • Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim  is ignorant that legal foreign workers’ children are not allowed at all in any government schools!
  • Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim  is ignorant that the government had built 3000 schools only for the illegal immigrants from Indonesia. (According to NST front page news and photograph of a school)

Even PR holders are denied the good faculties in Public or Government Universities nowadays.

  • Local students are subsidized using part of our levies and income-taxes.
  • Even in the expensive private universities, locals are supported using the foreigners’ levies and income-taxes.
  • Adding salt to that do you know that we need to pay  more then locals? And one idiot is asking to charge more on foreigners in the local universities. Is this the Justice?

Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim should open his eyes and fight for that injustices and then I am sure the foreign workers would be willing to pay even hundred times more than he proposed.

He is ignorant that Government health facilities always charge THREE TIMES first clast fees to the foreigners while keeping them in the Third Class.

  • He should fight to charge same rate as locals at hospitals if he wish to charge again in his state.
  • He came from Justice party: after charging those levies (when the locals earning the same salary are usually exempted from paying income-tax because of low earning.)
  • Afterall those foreign workers are working for your country, your countrymen’s companies that your citizens owned at least 30% and for your citizens. Where is “Justice” if the workers your citizens employed are forced to pay extra charges or sometimes denied medical treatment?

Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim  should be banned from claiming that he is from Justice Party if he continue to deny justice for all.

Using state Roads?

  • Foreigners also pay income-tax or levies.

  • Even if they use the taxis or busses, they paid the fees that is inclusive of all the Road Tax, Import Duty, Sales Tax, AP Fees, Tool fees etc.
  • If the Foreigners buy cars are they exempted from above?

So don’t give lame excuses Tun and Tan Seri, this is your country and State. If you want to discriminate on poor foreign workers, just do whatever you like. But don’t give those lame silly excuses. Just Hit the Soft Spots!” It is safer than exploiting the same citizens.

By the way, your “zero tolerance on squatters” is also targetting the poor. 

Please read the following news_

Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim in the Star Online news 

BANTING: Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram) should take a more national approach to foreign worker issues and not attack the state government, says Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.

Khalid said the state government’s proposal to collect RM9 monthly from all migrant workers in the state was aimed at setting up a fund to help provide re-training for local unemployed youths so they could land better jobs.

He said foreign workers living and working in Selangor enjoyed all the state’s infrastructure, like good schools, health facilities and roads and the state was just calling for them contribute something in return.

Well done: Khalid, you have darken your party and opposition.

“Suaram feels that bringing in foreign workers is one of the solutions to human rights problems but they should understand we have to help our own people, too.

“This is a democracy, so we can open up and discuss the matter,” he told reporters after officiating at the closing ceremony of the training for local authorities’ enforcement officers at the Selangor Enforcement Training Centre (Pulapes) in Jugra here yesterday.

On Monday, Suaram executive director Yap Swee Seng hit out at the state government’s proposal, calling it unjust as foreign workers received low wages and were often exploited by employers or recruitment agencies with non-payment, unjust deduction of salary, long working hours and unfair dismissals.

He added that migrant workers were barely surviving and probably in debt after paying exorbitant fees to come to work in Malaysia.

Khalid meanwhile said the RM4,000 in levy and agency charges migrant workers paid was too large a sum, and the state planned to call on the Federal Government to reduce the amount.

He also proposed that a centralised information system be set up to keep an accurate record of foreign workers in the state.

“I was among the people involved in the corporatisation of the system for foreign workers and I can show ways to keep tabs on even the illegal workers,” he said.

Khalid also said the Federal Government should not cast aside suggestions just because they came from opposition parties and should accept the good

“We want to show the federal government how to keep records on illegal workers (Have you use illegals in your old palmoil company?) by having the state levy. I will set up a centralised information system to keep correct records on those who come and work in the state,” he said.

Abdul Khalid said the RM3,000 to RM4,000 charged by migrant worker agencies was high and that for the Selangor government this was not reasonable.

(Then you have heart to extort extra RM 9.00, that will definitely pass onto the poor workers.)

(Have your old company pay the levies for your workers.  Afterall Tun said that levies were meant to made the employers expensive to hire foreigners but Tun and all of you close your eyes and look other way round when the poor foreign workers have to pay those money.)

If you are man enough demand part of the levies to be paid to state governments from the immigration or MOF.

He said millions of ringgit were paid by foreign workers to recruiting agencies that brought them to the country and the Malaysian government collected a levy but eventually the agents concerned did not know where the workers were and this “flood of foreign workers” created problems for society.

Although migrant workers, especially the illegal ones, were eventually repatriated by the government, the problem did not seem to end as they returned to the country and the ones who benefited were the travel agents and migrant workers recruitment agencies, Abdul Khalid said.

Withdraw Monthly Fee

on Migrant Workers

Wednesday, 26 March 2008 
Suaram is deeply disturbed with the plan of the Selangor state government to collect RM10 monthly fee from all migrant workers in the state of Selangor. The new policy was announced by the Chief Minister of the newly formed Selangor state government, Khalid Ibrahim recently during a press interview with Chinese press.

According to the Chief Minister, the money collected will be used for the purpose of setting up a re-training fund for unemployed youths. It aims to equip them with more skills and in a long run reduce the reliance on migrant workers. 

The migrant workers community is

  • one of the most exploited
  • and most marginalized groups in the society.
  • They work in conditions described as 3-Ds – dirty, demeaning and dangerous,
  • and theirs are jobs which the locals shun off.
  • They receive low wages
  • and are often exploited by employers
  • or recruitment agencies for non-payment,
  • unjust deduction of salary,
  • long working hours,
  • unfair dismissal etc.

By taxing the migrant workers

  • who are barely surviving
  • and probably in debt in order to pay the exorbitant fees to come to work in Malaysia ,
  • an extra heavy burden is added on the migrant workers and their families.

And to use the money collected from the migrant workers to re-train local unemployed youth and eventually replace the migrant workers, is scandalous, to say the least.

Even if the monthly fee is to be paid by the employer and not the migrant workers, we are concerned that eventually this fee will be deducted from the migrant worker’s wages one way or another.

The new policy reflects how unsensitized Malaysian political parties,

  • be they in the opposition

  • or the government,

are to the plight of migrant workers.

The Parti Rakyat Keadilan (PKR) has espoused the principle of justice and won a huge victory with the pledge to the people to fight against the widening income gap between the “have” and the “have-nots”.

Certainly, taxing the poor migrant workers to assist local unemployed youth, do not measure up to the principle and spirit of justice.

Suaram calls on Chief Minister Khalid Ibrahim to immediately withdraw this unjust policy. We also urge the Chief Minister to consult civil society organizations who are working on migrant workers issues before making any policy decisions in the future.
