Make a Stand...Interlok or Al-Kitab?

Funny how our BN government is having a tough time to release un-conditionally all Malay Bibles but finds it easy to introduce a racist text book (Interlok) to our school children in no time.

And this is coming from a government who has rule this county for the past 53+ years. And I guess this particular government gets more and more stupid by the day we keep them in power. Well, who is to be blame?

Interlok which has all the ingredients to make this country a boiling pot of Asia has been made a text book for all Form 5 students. Now, what sort of message is BN sending to our youngsters?

Well, for a start it means that all Indians and Chinese are still pendatangs and that's how the next generation of these 2 ethnic groups are to be remembered forever by all.

Secondly, it is perfectly all right to ridicule the "pendatangs" with whatever means possible; cultural or religious. This includes words like pariah, 'anjing orang putih', Chinese sell daughters etc etc etc.

Thirdly, we don't count anymore in this country. Our voices and grievances on this issue seems to be falling on deaf ears. I guess we are not wanted and this is something this racist and bigot government wants to instill into the minds of our students.

Well, to the Umnoputras out there let me put this as straight as I can "We are not leaving this country!"

This is our country as much as yours. It is UMNO who will be leaving starting from Putrajaya. So, if you think you can get rid of the other ethnic groups easily  think again.

Today we are seeing the extension of Interlok ridicule on the Christian population. Yeap, it is not in the text book but look where is our country heading to?

The 5100 pcs of Malay Bibles or Al-Kitab which was locked up in some godown port in Sarawak is treated like some contraband item. What are the Umnoputras afraid off?

Now the Al-Kitab has been desecrated and defaced by the order of the Home Ministry.  It wanted to add a serial number on its cover without the church's permission. What are they trying to proof.?

Are they trying provoke the Christian population? Or, are they trying to please the Muslim population to gain their votes.

Umno knows the rural seats will be the battleground to gain access into the Malay heartland against PAS.

But at whose expense?

Just imagine if the same were to happen to the Quran? I guess all hell will break loose just like few years ago when some Danish newspaper drew the prophet's cartoon!

I believe that the purpose of having Interlok in our schools today and the restriction and subsequent desecration of the Al-Kitab serves as as tool to gain the support of the Malay voters for the next GE13.

The Al-Kitab which is totally color blind and only speaks of doing good to our enemies has even become one of UMNO tools to in capturing Putrajaya.

Well, UMNO is playing with fire. This round it is the Christian Holy Book. I wonder what they are up to next?

And to the 2 Christian ministers (Idris Jala & Maximus Ongkili) you both are hopeless when it comes to defending you faith. I guess money is your God and it is only apt that you hear what Jesus has to say about politicians like you that "No man can serve two masters...You cannot serve both God and money" (Matt 6:24).

Coz you have shown us clearly who your masters are i.e. UMNO. The same goes to you Gerakan president Koh Tsu Koon a good for nothing minister in charge of National Unity.

And to all people of goodwill all over Malaysia let's bring down this BN government. Let's pray and fast that this BN government will pay the ultimate price for desecrating our Holy Book come GE 13.

Lets make a stand. Lets press on. Lets bring them down.

BN restricting Malay Bible but not Interlok!

There are so many happenings in Malaysia these days and it's hard to keep abreast of all news. From Anwar's sham trial to BN twin wins there is a lot to digest for any man and women on the street.

The most recent controversy is the banning of Malay Bibles by the BN government in Sarawak port. It's funny how our government seem to differ when it comes to using Interlok in the secondary school syllabus. I just don't get it guys!

The Interlok is such a subversive material which disregards the sensitivities of minorities in Malaysia. The Bible does not have any of those elements whether it's printed in English, Malay, Tamil, German etc. But the government still insist to ban it.

The BN government is ok in using racist text book but have the cheek to ban Bibles from entering our shores.

So, why the ban?

This really shows how racist and bigoted our ruling party are.

I just got the news that the racist BN government has released the Malay Bibles which it has detained in Port Klang and Sarawak port recently.

But that doesn't mean they are off the hook. They need to state their stand on the 1986 controversial ruling which bans all publications which uses the word Allah.

If not, history tends to repeat itself especially under the BN rule. It will if BN continues to rule Malaysia after the 13th General Election.

If you asked me this could just be a ploy by BN in facing the Sarawak state elections whereby 43% of the voters are Christians.

Hence, the need to release those Bibles. If not for the Sarawak Elections this issue would have been met with fierce resistance from UMNO and not forgetting Perkasa to continue to ban Malay bibles. The timing was perfect!

I guess the timing is also right to kick BN out of Sarawak and Malaysia as a whole. No God fearing person would ever vote for a party that lives and thrives on racist and bigoted statements and actions.

The BN must fall and it must fall NOW. Lets be ready for GE13 people!!!

BN-UMNO, Please get lost from Penang!

by K.Sudhagaran Stanley

In light of the recent baseless attacks and statements by the Opposition in Penang, Kedah and selangor towards the Pakatan Government, I would like to share with you 12 points on the achievements of the Penang DAP- Pakatan Government.

The facts and figures below were obtained from the Penang State Government.

1) Penang tops in investment in Malaysia attracting almost RM 12.2 billion investments or 26% of the overall investments in Malaysia. A historical success for Penang.
2) Penang was praised by the National Auditor General for being the state with the best financial management from 2008-2009
3) Penang tops in reducing the crime index for 2010 by 27%. It is the highest among all states in Malaysia.
4) Penang is the pioneer and leading state in green initiatives moving towards becoming the first green state in Malaysia.
5) Penang is the only state in Malaysia to be praised by Transparency International for the state government’s open tender and CAT governance based on competency, accountability and transparency.
6) Penang contributes two -thirds of the medical tourism in Malaysia.
7) Penang is the 1st state to give out RM100 annually to senior citizens above the age of 60yrs old. The state government commits to wipe out hardcore poverty and ensures that every family`s income is at least RM 500 a month.
8) Penang has the highest increase of Air-Travelers (30%) in comparison of other Malaysian airports in 2010.
9) Penang has zero unemployment rates and is currently having shortage of workers.
10) Penang state Government guarantees the freedom and upholds the human rights of the people through the freedom of information (FIO) Act and erected the Speaker`s Square at esplanade. The 1st in Malaysia which gives the people the freedom to voice their opinion.
11) Penang is the most committed and active in protecting, preserving and promoting heritage conservation such as the UNESCO world heritage city of George Town.
12) Penang is ranked as the most livable city in Malaysia.

As a Penang citizen, I am very proud of the success of my beloved Pakatan government.
The UMNO-Barisan racist company Sdn.Bhd, ( i say company because they are a money making politician, and sdn.bhd because they make money, stolen from the public, for their own pockets) is trying all its way's to down grade the Penang government and slander lies towards it`s administration. In recent news, we hear of the Racist BN company sdn.bhd attacking the Penang state Government and slandering lies against them.

I would like to tell the Penang Gerakan chief Dr Teng Hock Nan and the Umno liaison chief Zainal Abidin Osman, to mind your own business and not interfere in the affairs of Penang. The people of Penang had voted in the PR government and had given them the powers to run the Penang State. We don’t need your comments or advices on how to run the state as you guys come from a bad history and even a present fact of a corrupted and racist government. The people of Penang had clearly rejected the BN-UMNO in the last General Elections. Please stay out of Penang and let our government do their job.

The people of Penang today are very happy with state`s administration. There are many positive policies and steps taken by the government in favor of the Rakyat and not themselves. There are still many policies that cannot be enforced because of the involvement of the Federal Government led by the BN-UMNO Racist company sdn.bhd in the administration of Penang state. A very good example of such a matter would be the implementation of the State Local Council Elections. The state government is unable to move ahead with the plan because it requires the approval of the agencies controlled by the Federal government. Many problems in Penang today is due to the centralization of power in the federal government which controls all federal agencies. Decision by the federal is the key to such positive steps and the centralization of power had hampered the positive steps taken by the state government. Yet, the state is still working hard and trying it`s best to implement its plan through various ideas and measures taken. An example for that would be the creating of a port folio in the Penang Government to look after the affairs of non-Muslim. Such great and positive steps were never taken or considered by the previous BN-UMNO.

The federal government is only interested in a matter that brings income to their pockets. They will try whatever ways possible to create disunity among the races in Malaysia and shoot down critics by controlling the media and the enforcing of various draconian laws which are widely not accepted by the nation, to hold on to power. The recent Interlok Novel issue is a very good example on how the BN-UMNO is trying to poison the mind of the Rakyat and create disunity among them. The incident of the 3 students being held up and questioned by the police in the police station for nearly 10 hours without the consent of their parents is also a very good example on how the government uses the police to create fear among the Rakyat and shut them up. These students had returned their form 5 Novel “Interlok” to their headmaster because they were not happy with the content. Instead of investigating the government for making such book compulsory in form 5, the police abused the students by holding them up for 10hrs illegally without the conduct of law.

The people of Penang has spoken, and the message is clear, That we have made a good choice in selecting the DAP-Pakatan government to rule our state. I believe, if given the opportunity to govern Penang for at least another 4 term, we would be able to compete with Singapore and reach great heights, with fair and proper policies that benefit all citizens in Penang.
Meanwhile, the opposition in Penang can dream of taking back Penang in the next General Elections. Penang citizens are now matured and wise in choosing their government. So BN-UMNO company sdn.bhd which will soon be bankrupt can continue dreaming!

Mahathir oh Mahathir

Whatt happen to this old man? Just can't let go? Well, for those who don't know Mahathir is launching his Memoir "A Doctor in the House" tomorrow.

I guess he has the need to put things in his perspective so that everyone will get into the same page as him. Most probably the Textbook Division under the Education Ministry will change our History again to accomodate Tun Mahathir's version of history. You'll never know!

Which begs the next question. What is Tun Mahathir legacy exactly? Simple:-

- Money politics in UMNO and BN as a whole
- The rape of judiciary
- Operasi Lalang
- BMF scandal
- Bakun dam
- The sacking & jailing of Anwar Ibrahim
- Father of racism as espoused by our Federal Minister Nazri

And I guess the list goes on. Lets see how he deals with these issues in his memoir. Then you know the kind of man he is. A coward or someone coming to terms with his life.

Lets wait and see. Should be mind boggling so to speak!

Malaysians Deserve Better!

For a start this is not an analysis of what went wrong for PR in both the by-elections of Merlimau and Kerdau today. I'm sure there will be a few in the next few days.

First things first, BN's formula is working and they are regaining their strength day by day. Their ultimate tools Perkasa & Dr. Mahathir racist rhetoric and Utusan has been doing a good job in regaining the masses back to the fold. If not, how else to explain the increased in majority?

In addition, the Interlok issue has not been a crowd puller even for the Chinese and Indian voters in Merlimau and Kerdau this time around. Hindraf has lost its plot and their main supporters i.e. Indian voters are going back to BN big time.

Lets not forget the powerful BN machinery which is ever ready to do what it takes to get the votes in. It seems the BN machinery has been given an impetus with the likes of Ummi Hafilda even after 13 years of low profile.

So, what happens now? I guess the stage is set for UMNO/BN to call the shots. Is PR ready for GE13? I hope they are coz as Raja Petra put it "it's now or never" if we wanna change the government in Malaysia.

So, bring it on! We the people will press on for a change in Malaysia simple because We Deserve Better!!!

We will press on for a better governance in this country.

We will press on for a just and free Malaysia where all Malaysians are treated equally.

We will press on till we see the day this oppressive BN government is replaced with a government of the people, by the people and for the people!

Malaysians, We Deserve Better!!!
