Early migrants, “Foreigners the bane of neighbours”

THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK?

 

EARLY MIGRANTS HATE THE NEW COMERS?

Foreigners the bane of neighbours

From ANOTHER WORRIED RESIDENT of Kuala Lumpur: I REFER to Worried Resident’s letter on “Disgusted by behaviour of foreign workers,” (The Star, Nov 9).

….Since then, we have had to put up with workers bathing, brushing teeth and washing their laundry in front of the house every day………..

Then both of you and the STAR editors who think it is fit to bash up poor foreign workers should all go back to INDIA, CHINA OR INDONESIA where your ancestors came. Because according to your logic and anti-foreigner concepts, your ancestors SHOULD ALSO SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO COME HERE, because all first generation migrants who are not professional migrants are dirty, doing dangerous and non-dignified low pay jobs that the locals shun.

ACTUALLY ALMOST THE WHOLE POPULATION OF SINGAPORE ARE MIGRANTS BUT THEY ALL ARE ARROGANT ON NEW COMERS. BUT MOST OF THEM ARE COWARDS/EUNUCHS AND DARE NOT EVEN SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE LEE DYNASTY. BUT THEY WILL BULLY OTHERS EVERYWHERE, IN THE CYBERSPACE OR EVEN IN WIKI.

Xenophobia

Originally the word xenophobia comes from the Greek words xénos, meaning ‘the stranger’ and ‘the guest’ and phóbos, meaning ‘fear’. Thus, xenophobia stands for ‘fear of the stranger’, but usually the term is taken to mean ‘hatred of strangers’1. Xenophobia can be understood as “an attitudinal orientation of hostility against non-natives in a given population”.2

In contrast to sociobiologists who consider xenophobia to be a universal phenomenon, social scientists describe it as one among several possible forms of reactions generated by anomic situations in the societies of modern states. Furthermore, it is growing out of the existence of essentialist symbolic and normative systems that legitimate processes of integration or exclusion. Thus, xenophobic behaviour is based on existing racist, ethnic, religious, cultural, or national prejudice. Xenophobia can be defined as the “attitudes, prejudices and behaviour that reject, exclude and often vilify persons, based on the perception that they are outsiders or foreigners to the community, society or national identity.” 3

UPDATE

ISLAMIC UNIVERSITY

  1. In IIU (UIA) International Islamic University, Malaysia, Burmese Students were given places to study Medicine, Engineering and Law before we were ASEAN members.
  2. After we are accepted as fellow ASEAN, those good places are nowadays denied to Myanmar students.
  3. If the university continue to refuse accepting foreigners for Medical studies, please drop the International word from your name and refuse donations from other Islamic nations.
  4. UIA used to reject all the Burmese Students for their Matriculation Classes with the lame excuse that IIU has no bilateral agreement with Myanmar Government. But they are accepting even non-Muslim students from India.(Are the authorities blind to see the anti-Muslim SPDC’s policy and democratic secular India’s policy?
  5. Now ASEAN Foreigners’ children are no more accepted in public schools. Previously they could. Is this the price of becoming an ASEAN member?
  6. Continue reading

China as a safe haven for Myanmar’s Muslims

Islam in China

“Seek knowledge even as far as China.” – Saying of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

109261-burmese-muslim-girl-0.jpgAlthough this story is not strictly about Chinese Muslims but it is related to a news item which has been quite prominent in the news lately and does involve Muslims in China but not exactly Chinese Muslims. What I am referring to are people from the Rohingya ethnic group who are predominantly Muslims and have been forced to flee their homeland by the Military Junta. I saw this news item by chance and discusses the plight of Rohingyas and how many have found refuge in Southwest China. Here is an extract from the story:

“I don’t even know where my friends are buried,” Islam said, bursting into sobs. “My mistake was being educated,” said the zoologist. After five months of clandestine living he joined the exodus of hundreds of thousands fleeing the junta to neighbouring Bangladesh. “I had to leave, the military was going from home to home looking for me,” said Islam.

Xenophobia, selfishness and political showmanship prohibit the permanent residents from enjoying the fuel rebates

TQ Dr., for your kindness and consideration for us in writing this letter. But Xenophobia, selfishness and political showmanship of leaders here prohibit the permanent residents from enjoying the fuel rebates.

Nowadays racist politicians are so bankrupted of ideas as they could not show off any more to their races as the defender and champion of their race, by attacking other Malaysians after the wind of change that blew during the GE 2008.

So they all need to hit the foreigners, including the PR holders to showoff their own races as patriotic heroes. This is going on sadly on the both sides of the political divide. Both the Government and opposition leaders are shamelessly keep on hitting the soft spot to gain political mileage.

Please read this kind gentle Dr’s letter_

Proper Rule of Law should be introduce for granting citizenship

Rule of Law

should take over

Rule by arbitrary Law

for granting citizenship

Malaysian Citizenship Law should be reviewed urgently from the present unjust law that practice discriminations to the law that respects Equal Human Rights in compliance to contemporary International Practice and according to true Islamic teachings.

Malaysian Home Ministers and their Deputy Ministers used to proudly claim in the newspapers that granting citizens is not the migrant’s right but the privilege granted as rewards or sympathy.

This concept is basically wrong. The highly qualified migrants who could contribute to the progress of Malaysia are deserved to be accepted and should be granted citizenship without delay. Malaysia should make the new citizenship law by granting a right to the qualified migrant, of course only if he is entitled according to the law and is free from any crimes. Continue reading
