NO OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD GIVES SPECIAL FINANCIAL AND LAND ALLOCATIONS TO THEIR MINORITY CHINESE AND INDIAN COMMUNTIES, OTHER THAN MALAYSIA.

…WHY DO THE CHINESE AND INDIANS IN MALAYSIA NOW WANT THE MELAYU TO GET RID OF THEIR CRUTCHES, SO THEY CAN USE THEM INSTEAD?! HOW PATHETIC, HOW TRUE INDEED!
By Mansor Puteh



THE CHINESE AND INDIANS ARE TRYING TO GET CRUTCHES BY DEMANDING THAT THEY ARE GIVEN FINANCIAL FUNDS AND EVEN LAND?

DIDN’T THE CHINESE CAUSE THE COLLAPSE AND EXTINCTION OF AN ISLAMIC AND MELAYU KINGDOM OF SINGAPURA WHEN THEIR NUMBERS INCREASED?

IT’S QUITE LAUGHABLE HOW THEY ARE NOW PICKING UP THE CRUTCHES DISCARDED BY THE MELAYU WHO ARE NOW COMPETING WITH THEM AT ALL LEVELS AND ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES.

Which country in the world where there are Chinese and Indian communities that have been given special allocations than in Malaysia? They are given financial aid and also land and are still not satisfied.

There is no other country that has these, other than Malaysia. Yet, Malaysia and the Melayu have often been charged by some Chinese and Indian groups to be unfair. How so?

Whereas in America, England and the other western countries, most of them are left behind in all areas with many stuck in the Chinatowns and Little Indias. Yet, they do not want to complain about the governments for being unfair to them.

Ironically and strangely, those countries are often being used by some Chinese and Indian community leaders to be fairer to them than Malaysia where many of them would want to go to and work as well as to get permanent residency status or even citizenship of. How so when they are ignored by all of those countries?

They do not have control of the media and political as well as cultural and social associations to do that. So they are quiet as church mice there.

Whereas in Malaysia they squeak and squeal. They also blame everybody for their own personal failures and those of their leaders. They never blame themselves for anything.

They will never want to admit that the Melayu are in such worse shape than them.

It’s all a psychological ploy hatched by their community leaders and media which harp on the same tired issues.

But the sad part is that the Melayu leaders are dumb to realize this and not dare address the issue properly to prove to them how ungrateful they are. They can never be satisfied even if they own everything.

They can never own anything because their shrinking population size will not work to their interests, much like what Singapura could when they replaced the Islamic and Melayu Kingdom of Singapura to become a confused Chinese republic – a red dot in the sea of green – as described by one of their senior leaders. Alas a similar red dot in Malaysia is shrinking in size as the sea of green here is fast expanding.
.
And during the general elections and by-elections their only demand is to be given financial aid and more land and other assistants. And those who are demanding it are mostly from the Chinese and Indians who are not well-educated who have vernacular Mandarin and Tamil school backgrounds.

So they want everything for free without having to do anything. But they are not yet blaming their community leaders for misleading them for going to the vernacular schools for which they had not benefited from.

The only things that they had benefited from such schools are poor education, poverty and self-deprivation. Most are still stuck in Hong Kong as well as in Chennai.

And they have also not started to blame their political and other community leaders for the miseries they are experiencing now.

They had not envisaged how the New Melayu who are dependent on the government are superseding them in all fields and they are also not enamored with the Old Melayu thinking and how their leadership wants to mislead them.

They know how to get there on their own because they had long ago discarded the crutches which unfortunately are being picked up by many Chinese and Indian who are in bad shape.

In other words, they want crutches from the federal and state governments from both sides.

Yet there are some Chinese and Indian community and political leaders who are proud of those countries in the west for being democratic.

But alas, they do not have special allocation in terms of financial aid and even land for them.

They have no shame for telling everybody how they are in such a deplorable state that they can only survive with government aide and assistance or else they would not give them their valued votes.

They vote not according to their conscience, for they may not have that much of it. They vote for those who can provide them. And they want everything for free.

They are that deplorable. They are that self-centered.

Whereas there are many Melayu who are in more deplorable state without the basic amenities yet, they are not begging. They have accepted their fate.

Where in the world where people who are generally not well educated and who are too lazy to fend and feed themselves and their families are demanding for the government to look after them, while they do the outrageous and nothing to better themselves.

If they get the chance they would go to America, England and some other countries in the west where they have no choice but to speak in the language of the majority there which is English.

Here they slog and do not complain. They are willing to work the whole day. They do not complain. Their brethren who are citizens of these countries do not complain too. They stick to themselves and do not gang up to blame the majority.

The Chinese and Indians in America and Britain and other countries in the west, have to slog to become good citizens of those and the other countries. They do not complain for being marginalized, like their brethren allege that Malaysia does to them.

Why do they want the Melayu to get rid of their ‘crutches’ when they are now demanding some for themselves?

The Melayu are not on crutches; they are the majority, and Malaysia is their land. So economic development centers around what they need.

This is what America, Britain and the other countries do all the time.

Why didn’t the Chinese and Indian communities in these countries complain that they have been marginalized for so long?

Some of the ancestors of the Chinese and Indians in these countries have gone there much earlier than most of the Chinese and Indians who had come to Malaya or Tanah Melayu.

The Chinese and Indians in Malaysia are asking for too much and for too long now, yet they still insist on being allowed in their fantasy land of China and India while holding onto their Malaysian passports.

Not many wish to return to their Motherland.

When I was on a trip to China with a group of Chinese from Malaysia, I tried to joke by asking how many of them wished to return to China to work and live.

None wanted.

They all did not think it was comfortable to live and work in China, even if they could do that.

They still wanted to return to Malaysia after the five-day trip to Beijing and Tianjin where they felt belong and more at home.

Here in the heart of China and being surrounded by all things Chinese, they squirm. They do not feel comfortable.

Yet in Malaysia, some other Chinese want to bring as much of China to the country as possible. They have built many statues of Quan Yin.

If possible and if they are capable, they would also want to rebuild the Tiananmen Square and surround the Chinatowns with the replica of the Great Wall of China.

This prompted the Indians, nay, Hindus to try and compete with them – by constructing a huge statue of the deity at the Batu Caves temple, which is now more of a complex than a temple. Chances are the Hindu elders and leaders will want to see how it would become a city.

It was barely forty years ago that the temple was nothing but a cave with some small Hindu deities.

Why didn’t they try and do all these things where they are allowed to, such as in America and Britain and in the other countries.

Yes, they have done that – the Hindus in America, by building a huge temple in Atlanta, which is reported to be the largest Hindu temple in the country and the west.

Will they want to stop there?

Will they not want to rebuild a replica of the Ganga River somewhere in America?

Maybe they can, if they can afford do.

But I doubt it if they are allowed to do something like that in Singapura which is a Chinese republic and a former Islamic and Melayu Kingdom of Temasek.

In this republic Chinese and Hindu temples are so few. One can never find one so easily.

There are some old masjid, which the authorities could not demolish because of their historical value. And the muezzin at the Masjid Sultan in Kampong Glam is allowed to cry out the ‘azan’ five times a day but not so loudly.

The news ones had to be rebuilt so that they do not look like masjid but just buildings.

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE CHINESE AND INDIANS IN AMERICA AND MALAYSIA.

…HOW MUCH FINANCIAL AND LAND ALLOCATIONS DO THE CHINESE AND INDIANS IN AMERICA GET FROM THEIR GOVERNMENT?
By Mansor Puteh



THE TRUTH IS THAT THE BEHAVIOR OF THE CHINESE AND INDIANS IN AMERICA AND MALAYSIA IS SO DIFFERENT.

IN AMERICA, THEY BEHAVE BETTER; THEY DO NOT INSIST ON HAVING THEIR WAY AND BLAMING THE COUNTRY FOR THEIR OWN FAILURES AND OTHER PERSONAL MISFORTUNES BEING TOO FAR AWAY FROM THEIR MOTHERLANDS.

THEY CANNOT EXERT THEMSELVES TOO MUCH BY INSISTING ON HAVING THEIR OWN SCHOOLING SYSTEM AS WELL AS PRETTY MUCH THE OTHER THINGS.

In America, the Chinese and Indians have no choice but to submit to the will of the majority, considering how small their numbers are there and how inferior they feel being socially self-displaced.

Many are still stuck in the Chinatowns and Little Indias, especially those who do not wish to assimilate. Here they can pretend they are still in China and India.

Yes, some of them do not even venture outside of these areas, they speak in Chinese or Indians and do not know who the president of the country where they hold citizenship of.

Yet, their ancestors had come to America to toil the land and in the gold mines more than a hundred years ago.

Those who assimilate do better. But the numbers are so few.

There is hardly a Chinese or Indian who can exert himself too much without being condemned as being anti-America and a racist. They have to conform.

Here they cannot claim to be the kingmakers as well as nuisance makers like they do in Malaysia.

Fortunately, the Chinese and Indians are not too many in other countries, or else they would also want to behave like their brethren in Malaysia, where they are able to form their own political parties which act as fronts to exert themselves.

They can by right be able to establish their own schooling system in America or England, but they do not want to do that because vernacular education in these countries does not bring any benefit to them, since their hold on the economy is marginal.

In Malaysia, they insist and demand on having their own schooling system. But in the later years of their students, they succumb to the psychological and work pressures and enroll in the national schooling system.

Not many of their students from the vernacular schools want to enroll at universities that teach in their mother languages, because they know they have to speak in the other languages, too, such as English and also Melayu, which is the national language of Malaysia, to get by.

But despite that, many of them still can’t speak and write well in Melayu despite having had education at the universities in Malaysia.

So no wonder, if there is one Chinese or Indian amongst the many of their Melayu colleagues, they tend to force everybody else to speak in English, even though their English is passable compared to their Melayu.

There are many Melayu who are taken by their bait and who also want to show off their proficiency of the English language. But what they don’t realize is that they are Melayu who suffer from an inferiority complex.

Maybe they pity the lone Chinese and Indian and they do not want them to be ‘accepted’ by them and by speaking in English, these Melayu are saying, you are not one of us.

Psychologically speaking, this may be true.

But the Chinese and Indians don’t seem to realize this.

What they probably think is that they have managed to force the Melayu not to use their language with them.

Where in America where one can find programs on national television that are in Mandarin or Tamil?

There is no prime-time news in these languages, on the major networks.

America became truly united because they have a common education system.

Other than that they also have a common media that shares news and stories on America. So over the decades, America became truly united.

The diversity of the Americans has been used positively to create the American nation and people with diverse racial backgrounds who proclaim loyalty to the same symbols.

In Malaysia, each of the non-Melayu race is still pay allegiance to their motherlands.

America does not offer financial as well as land allocation to their Chinese and Indian population. Yet none of them complaint about this.

In Malaysia they demand all sorts of things, especially money and land.

This is an extension to what their ancestors had done when they first came to this country with nothing on their backs. They were able to survive because of the charity of the Melayu who offered them everything to make their lives comfortable, to their own disadvantage.

Some of my ancestors had also come from China and India. But they did not want to pay allegiance to these countries which had caused them to flee from them.

China or India had failed to provide for them.

So why did they have to pay allegiance to them?

In America they readily embrace Americanism, but in Malaysia there is abhorrence to Malaysiaism, as it is seen to be Melayuism.

CRIME DOES NOT PAY. CRIME DOES PAY. – PART II.

…AND WHAT LESSONS CAN WE LEARN FROM SAUDI ARABIA, JAPAN AND SINGAPURA. AND WHAT GREED HAS GOT TO DO WITH MOST OF THE CRIMES THAT ARE CREATED.
By Mansor Puteh



IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO GREED.

THIS IS THE TRAIT WHICH MANY PEOPLE HAVE AND MANY MALAYSIANS ARE NOT SHORT OF THAT.

ONE CAN BE VERY TEMPTED TO GO INTO THE WORLD OF CRIME EVEN WHEN HE IS HIGHLY EDUCATED, SO ONE THINKS THAT ONE CAN MAKE A CALCULATED RISK AND TO TRY TO BENEFIT FROM THAT WITHOUT BEING CAUGHT

Some succeed, but some fail.

Criminals and conmen prey on those who are vulnerable and straightforward who believe in everything they say, especially if it is a huge profit on a purchase of land that does not exist.

In many instances, the greedy persons will be tempted to get that profit, by spending a bit of money and being cheated in the process without double-checking on the background of the lawyers they are dealing with and the land they want to purchase on their behalf, to see if it exists.

But most of the petty and other serious crimes are committed by those who are not so well educated and who have greed in them. They also crave to get things that they could not afford.

And in Malaysia, who are those people who are in the world of crimes? They are people with similar traits that they have similar academic, social and cultural backgrounds with many are from the same type of schools.

When they drop out so early in such schools, they did not have many options to start their own life, so they drift to the world of crimes.

It will be a long while before we can find ourselves in a society and country which are free of crimes, however petty so much so that we can leave our belongings at public places and still be able to find them few hours or days later.

Saudi Arabia was such a place, and I have seen how the system there works. The other country is Japan, and I have also experienced personally how things are left on benches in their subway stations could be collected at the nearest stations.

And Singapura is not bad either. it is an island republic and it is small; so it can enclose itself nicely and keeping out of alien criminal activities with so few entry and exit points to worry about while the Malaysian borders are long and mostly deserted.

Surprisingly, these are a Muslim and two non-Muslim countries which are at the other end of the Asian continent.

Yet, Malaysia can never be half as good as them in many ways.

One imposes laws of Allah and the other, in the way they behave amongst themselves. Both create the best situations for their own countries.

Many countries which do not have similar beliefs suffer and as such their citizens tend to be less regimented to behave in the most human manner.

Still there are thefts and rapes committed in Japan, much to my surprise, as there also in Saudi Arabia. But these incidents are far in between.

Fortunately, for many, they learn very fast, and from the experiences of the others who had been punished for the crimes they had committed, for which they had managed to use them as a valuable lesson for them, so that they do not repeat them.

Society and civilization have not actually taught human beings to behave in the proper manner; free of greed, they still have to be bound by law to curb even the worse of the greedy so they do not want or dare to exploit it.

Sometimes even religious laws are not too stringent as the punishment meted is only felt in the Hereafter.

So no wonder, many prominent persons and even those whom we consider to be pious have been known to commit crimes, many of which have been exposed while the many others have been hidden. They think they can handle their lives in the Hereafter and escape the final persecution.

It’s only they who know what crimes they had committed, but their conscience has not told them to feel any tinge of regret. So they go along on with their lives keeping the secrets in their hearts.

Only so few of them have been exposed for abuse of power, corruption and even crimes, because they know how to hide their tracks. They know how to confuse their trackers so much so that they are often seen to be righteous persons whom they are not.

They are crooks and criminals who are allowed to roam the land free from any fears of persecution because they know the law and how to avoid from being charged or arrested.

They are shrewd and cunning. But deep inside them, they know that they are sick.

I read the papers and watch on television on the many people who commit crimes which are so repetitive in nature like I am watching a daytime soap opera which is being repeated again and again. The only differences are that they involve different characters, locations and situations. But they are still basically using the same plot.

It is indeed such a pitiful sight seeing able men and women committing crimes just because they are too lazy to earn their keep so that they are able to purchase all the things that they had tried to pinch from the others who had found it necessary to educate themselves so that they become people who have virtues.

Yet, they are often seen as potential victims of those who do not share similar sentiments, who want to go about the easiest way of becoming criminals or petty thieves without care for retribution for the Higher Being or the relevant laws which had been in place by our ancestors and fathers of the land and even by our religions.

Seeing something in the media which is repetitive is quite boring. But this is life. Some people will never learn from the mistakes of the others. They do not seem to realize that what they want to do is something that has been done many times before and there were all dealt with expeditiously.

Some of the crimes take a longer time to settle, but they are still done finally, regardless of whether they were done so by the laws of man or later still by the Higher Being in the Hereafter – if this matters to them.

CRIME DOES NOT PAY. CRIME DOES PAY. – PART I.

IT CAN PAY…AND WITH GOOD DIVIDENDS TO THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO RISK THEIR LIVES LIVING IN THE WORLD OF CRIME AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT AND IF THEY ARE NOT CAUGHT EXPEDITIOUSLY BECAUSE THE SYSTEM IS SUCH THAT IT TAKES A WHILE FOR THEM TO BE APPREHENDED.
By Mansor Puteh



YET THERE ARE STILL SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE STUBBORN WHO WANT TO TAKE THE RISKS OF COMMITTING CRIME TO LEAD THE LIFE OF CRIMINALS TO GET SOME THRILL FROM IT.

THEY MAY BE PETTY CRIMES, BUT THERE ARE ALSO THOSE THAT INVOLVE LARGER SUMS OF MONEY OR PROPERTIES AND EVEN LIVES…

MAYBE CRIME DOES PAY AND IT COMES WITH GOOD DIVIDENDS. AND IT IS FUN WHILE IT LASTED, A CONCEPT THAT IS THRILLING AND EXCITING TO MORE AND MORE PEOPLE THESE DAYS, AND THANKS TO THE MEDIA AND TELEVISION WHICH SEEM TO PROMOTE CRIMINAL ACTS IN MANY SUBTLE WAYS.

There are too many hidden pockets in Malaysia where the criminals can operate from and almost freely sometimes just a stone’s throw away from a police station.

There is no system that acts as a check to stop people from committing crimes so easily. The whole country is open to them and the attention is too focused on how to arrest criminals when it should be on how to stop people from drifting into it.

One can therefore be said to be ‘encouraged’ to become criminals because the risks are low.

If the risks are very high and the dividends not worth it, then even those who have poor education and have bad traits will not dare to embark on such insidious adventures because they know the risks are very high. They might as well stick to working as construction workers or do petty trading in the ‘pasar malam’ and earn a living out of it as it is their lot to do.

And if they want to succeed in life they know they have to pursue their education so they can move up a step on the ladder of success.

Otherwise, why do we see the many Iranians and Nigerians and some South Americans who still want to pursue the glorious and adventurous lives of smugglers and criminals?

They know the risks involved and wanted to take them.

Most of the time, the system ‘allows’ crimes to happen and for criminals to get away for a long time before they are apprehended especially the repetitive crimes that involve the smuggling of humans and other goods particular contraband fireworks and crackers from China and other counterfeit electronic and many assortment of cheap products and goods from China and clove or ‘kretek’ cigarettes from Indonesia where there is a huge demand from Malaysians and foreigners living in the country.

I don’t think there is any argument on this matter that crime does not pay.

Many feature films and television dramas promote the life of crime as adventurous and exciting. Being good and chaste is old-fashion.

But it can be said it does, if people want to get ‘free board and lodging’ without having to worry about where and how they can get them.

Going into crime can solve their problems for a while especially if their lives were worse off in the free world than in prison. They would choose to go to prison then.

So some might even be tempted to commit rape so they can be ‘housed’ for life and get free meals everyday and a roof over their heads.

It’s not exactly a spa but they think it is. So what can we say? Crime does not pay, you say?

But to some the thrill of robbing, stealing and maiming seems to be worth the risks involved, despite the harsh punishment that await them. Surely they know that it does not pay to be in crime, but they did not care.

And how so often have we seen in the media when criminals commit crimes of all sorts, and barely a few days later, they are apprehended. Sometimes, they are caught holed in their hideout within a day or even hours of having committed the crimes.

Yes, they never learn. They still go along the same route of planning their criminals acts and actually committing them, only to find out that the loot that they had stolen, is not worth the time they would have to spend being in and out of the courts while in remand as well as in prison.

Many of them do not seem to be able to look slightly ahead of their noses to see what lies ahead of them. Can’t they see police vans waiting to get them, if they commit crimes?

They also can’t imagine seeing the judges sitting in front of them giving the harsh sentences which will force them to be incarcerated for many years.

They cannot imagine how they will languish in prison doing time and are released many years later looking lost in a world which they had rejected?

They still have to return to society. They still have to live on.

Worse, when some of them who had to spend time in prison return to their old stupid selves and commit the same acts which will force them to return to the same drab activity of being taken to the courts and then sentenced to prison for another term.

There are some who learnt the lesson fairly late after having committed the crimes, while the others have to do it the second and also the third time before they finally realize their own folly.

The most that they can do is to escape the long arms of the law for just a while, so they are able to spend just a fraction of what they had robbed or stolen, before they are apprehended.

There are not too many places in the country where these criminals can hide themselves in without they themselves given the clue of who they are and what they had done.

CCTV systems are also a big help, as with the other sophisticated electronic surveillance systems.

More sophisticated safety electronic systems will be introduced in the years ahead so that it will make it virtually difficult for anyone to be negligent and be anti-social, unless if he is so desperate and does not care for the outcome and effect of his misbehavior.

THE CLASH OF THE CIVILIZATION – MALAYSIAN-STYLE!

…BETWEEN THOSE WHO WERE EDUCATED IN THE ‘SEKOLAH KEBANGSAAN’ AND THE VERNACULAR MANDARIN AND TAMIL SCHOOLS.
By Mansor Puteh



THIS IS WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING IN MALAYSIA TODAY, A CLASH OF THE CIVILIZATION BETWEEN TWO CONTENDING GROUPS, BETWEEN THOSE WHO WERE EDUCATED IN THE ‘SEKOLAH KEBANGSAAN’ OR NATIONAL SCHOOLS AND THOSE IN THE VERNACULAR MANDARIN AND TAMIL ONES.

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THE PEOPLE IN THE TWO GROUPS HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS OF THINGS WITH ONE GROUP LOOKING AHEAD AND THE OTHER GROUP LOOKING BACKWARD AND ARE IN A SELF-DENIAL MODE ALL THE TIME, FEELING FEARFUL AND GUILT-LADEN BECAUSE OF THE FAULT THEIR PARENTS HAD MADE.

WHILE THOSE WITH NATIONAL SCHOOL BACKGROUND ARE TRYING TO MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO, THOSE IN THE OTHER GROUP WHO HAVE TOTALLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES AND NARROW-MINDED VIEWS OF THINGS THAT CAUSE THEM TO WANT TO MAKE UNUSUAL AND OUTRAGEOUS UN-MALAYSIAN AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL DEMANDS AND SPEAK IN TOUNGUES.

Someone said there would be a ‘clash of civilization’ in the world which would be divided into different parts between the Muslim world and the west.

Fortunately, this has not happened as the ‘clashes’ that the world has seen are the same types which we had seen before which do not seem to end.

But in Malaysia, a clash of the civilization has happened in a small Malaysian or unMalaysian way.

It is due mostly to the way the people were educated with the majority having the national school experience while the Chinese and Tamil minority having the vernacular backgrounds.

It is quite obvious that the clash of the civilization in Malaysia and the related events and other unnecessary media happenings and creations are mostly due to the differences between the educational and academic backgrounds of those who are drawn into the quagmire.

On one hand we have those with the national school or ‘sekolah kebangsaan’ background and on the other, we have those who have the vernacular mandarin or Tamil school background.

Most of the community and political leaders have vernacular backgrounds; so their thinking is different.

They ask questions which are petty. Their concerns are mostly for their own community.

They thrive as long as there are vernacular schools and the vernacular newspapers.

And as long as they are able to convince their own community to stick with themselves, despite the fact that most of them are not well educated – their community members and also themselves.

How could the community and political leaders of the Chinese and Indians in Malaysia to have such people whose academic backgrounds are not so impressive.

Yes, they are able to speak well in English and also in Melayu. But the buck stops with them when they cannot digress what they are saying or doing most of the time.

Yes, the community and political leaders of the Chinese and Indians are people who are not so well educated.

They have vernacular school background, so they are able to speak in Mandarin and Tamil well. But they did not pursue their education at universities that teach in these languages.

It is therefore ironic that they would flock to the national schools and to the universities where the main medium of instruction is Melayu.

They claim that their vernacular schools are more superior to the national schools, yet, they did not wish to pursue their education in their mother tongue, when they were able to do so.

They cry if they cannot get a place to study in the public universities.

Yet, earlier on, they cry if they are advised to study in the national schools at the primary level.

Now, they are singing a totally different story with regard to their secondary and tertiary education.

So most of the Chinese and Indian leaders are those who are not well educated; most of them only have a basic degree from the local universities.

They speak good Melayu and also English. But they use them to challenge and counter the Melayu leaders.

It is also very interesting to note that those Chinese and Tamils and other Indians who studied in the national schools do not think, speak or write like their brethren who have the vernacular school backgrounds.

In fact, they also do not look like them. They look more Malaysian while the others look like aliens.

And their continued preference for things Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and India, makes it even worse for them.

Worse, they look like tourists in the country who are lost in the crowd of people comprising of the majority Melayu who are growing in numbers and congregating in the cities, towns and other urban centers and residential areas, not to mention the ordinary ‘pasar malam’.

It is too sad that those with the vernacular school background can still insist that they are right in wanting to encourage their young to pursue the same course as they and their parents and also grandparents had.

Haven’t they realized that the main reason for their personal discomfort and instability stem from the fact that they have education backgrounds of the minority, so they think like a minority and behave like aliens to the land?

Don’t they also know that they had also tried to get places in the national schools and public universities and also government scholarships, so their independence is put in question?

The independent schools have not become independent anymore; they have become dependent of the charity of the government.

And those with vernacular school backgrounds have become parasitic in their attitude and most of them are those who drop out of the vernacular schools which have all failed them.

Yet, there are such a small minority of them who are successful who claim that such vernacular schools are superior. They are in self-denial.

Most of the Chinese and Tamils in Malaysia who do not have social mobility and who are stuck in the ghettos of their own communities are those who have vernacular Mandarin and Tamil school backgrounds.

They are stuck with no future or nowhere to go to.

Only those who manage to pursue their education in the national schooling system and later at the public universities are the ones who are insisting that their vernacular schools are good because they are successful.

But alas, they do not dare to admit that they are successful only because they have gone through the national schooling system to be able to benefit from it, and also to be able to speak and write better in Melayu and English.

Their brethren who failed at the vernacular school level are the ones who suffer. They live their life in misery.

Some of them are able to go abroad to work in the many Chinese restaurants, and illegally while the others have to make do with opening up stalls in the night markets and doing small trading.

There are also many of the Chinese with vernacular school backgrounds who are in the world of crime, prostitution and illegal gambling and smuggling of cheap goods from China and the trading in of Beijing women to work in the many massage parlors which are mostly fronts for prostitution rings.

The Chinese and Tamil community, business and political leaders must be open-minded and accept the fact that their brethren who fail in life are those who have vernacular school backgrounds.

Whereas, those who have the national school backgrounds are more successful and less susceptible to negative thoughts and anti-government sentiments.

CRIMINALS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF POOR POLICING, POLITICKING AND SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DISORDER CREATED BY POOR URBAN PLANNING.

…NEW RECRUITS TO CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES ARE FOUND ON A DAILY BASIS, AND THEY COME FROM PEOPLE WITH CERTAIN EDUCATIONAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS.
By Mansor Puteh



YET MOST OF THE CRIMES INVOLVE THOSE WHO DROPPED OUT EARLY FROM THE VERNACULAR MANDARIN AND TAMIL SCHOOLS WHICH HAVE FAILED THEIR COMMUNITIES.

REPETITIVE CRIMES ARE THOSE WHICH ARE ALLOWED TO BE SO REPEATED. SADLY, MOST OF THEM ARE PETTY AS WELL AS THE MORE ORGANIZED CRIMES WHICH DEAL IN THE MILLIONS OF RINGGIT.

AND THEY CAN OPERATE SO OPENLY AND SO BLATANTLY, RIGHT UNDER THE VERY EYES OF THOSE WHO ARE PAID TO SEE THEY FAIL.

This is where our law enforcement officers, the police, politicians, educationists and other well-meaning leaders fail, to arrest crime in the country, especially those which are done so openly and so blatantly, and almost right under their very eyes.

Now they have to be further belittled when some television stations find it expedient to bully and to teach them some lessons on where and how to find some of the criminals and where their criminal activities are taking place.

Does this mean that these television stations are doing a better job at crime exposing and prevention than the official authorities concerned? Yes, they are.

The television stations are also so daring that they are now asking their viewers to report to them if they see any criminal activity instead of them reporting to the authorities, meaning the police and DBKL or other relevant agencies which are now fast becoming totally irrelevant to the matter.

If there’s anything that one can discern from the ‘crime programs’ on television, it is their not saying that they are now the more effective authority in crime prevention in the country and or the others.

The police have been involved in trying to arrest the criminals; the papers have written on them countless number of times.

And the politicians and other community and religious elders are aware of the types of crimes that have been created and continued to be repeated.

But, alas, they do not know the patterns involved and how to change them. They only know how to loathe crimes that are created in the same manner using the same pattern.

And never mind those who claim to be experts in crime-prevention; they only know how to pick little details and get attention to themselves for spouting nonsensical and idiotic diatribes.

The criminals get new recruits everyday. They do the same trick everyday – including pulling out ATMs out of the walls in the banks. Some succeed, some fail.

Yet, this pattern of criminal behavior will be repeated. And the same police we have will send their men to investigate while the media cover the mess.

And where are the politicians? Why are they not debating on this issue?

Do the so-called crime-prevention experts know what are the elements involved in such crimes that cause these crimes to be allowed to happen?

No, they don’t. Otherwise, they would have said so.

Yes, there is a pattern which allows certain types of crimes to be created on a daily basis. These are reported on a daily basis by the media, too.

And the police will investigate using the same method. But all of them will not be able to find out what are the pattern and the elements the criminals have to take advantage of the setup, and continue on with their trade of stealing things and robbing jewelry stores.

INCOMPLETE MUSLIM AND MELAYU WORLDS AND THEIR HIGHLY INCOMPETENT LEADERS.

…THIS IS WHAT THE SO-CALLED LEADERS ARE – STUBBORN, NARROW-MINDED AND UNCULTURED WHO ROLL IN THE MEDIA LIMELIGHT AND WHO LIVE IN THEIR OWN WORLD OF FANTASY.
By Mansor Puteh



NO WONDER THE REST OF THE WORLD ESPECIALLY THE WEST DOES NOT KNOW WHO THE MUSLIMS ARE AND WHAT THE MUSLIM COULD DO TO CO-EXIST WITH THEM.

THE MUSLIM WORLD DOES NOT NEED A SALADIN. THOSE WHO HAD ASPIRED TO BE SO, HAD BEEN PUNISHED SEVERELY. SADDAM HUSSEIN FOUND THIS OUT EARLY. GHADAFY ALSO FOUND IT SO. FORTUNATELY FOR HIM HE COULD LEARN QUICKLY FROM SADDAM’S MISTAKE SO HE REPENTED.

THOSE MUSLIM LEADERS WHO CAN ASPIRE TO BE HIM ARE THOSE WHO ARE STUBBORN AND WHO DO NOT KNOW HOW TO BOW OUT OF THE SCENE AND LIVE THE LIFES OF PSEUDO-DICTATORS.

These dictators and dictators wannabe do not want their countries to develop because they see development to be anathema to their very existence since a well-educated and well-informed populace is bad for them. They want to die in office and allow their off-springs to take over from them.

This is also what the pseudo-dictators in many Muslim countries want to do. They want their children and close relatives and cronies or bag-carriers to join them in their charade to provide the country and their people, when their only concern is to provide for their personal well-being. The country and people come later and they can get whatever that’s left from the loot that they could pinch and hide.

So no wonder many Muslim countries and the Muslim World and Melayu World are incomplete with the people sick and confuse.

These people are not smart; they are just idiots. They prolong their tenure of office as dictators after assuming duties by overthrowing an earlier regime.

The Melayu World can never find another Hang Tuah.

But they can create filmmakers and artists who can be the pseudo-Saladin and pseudo-Hang Tuah.

This article is written based on the speech I gave at the forum on Islamic cinema which was held at Aswara on 2 September which was also based on the paper I presented at the first international Muslim filmmakers’ conference in Tehran, Iran in February, 1994.

…while the majority of the Ummah continue to suffer without basic amenities while they live in the lap of luxuries with everything in their possession.

So they think the Muslim and Melayu worlds are okay because they, their children and close friends and other cronies are also okay since this is their real world. The others are those whom they occasionally meet to get media attention.

no wonder till now, in the 1431 Hijriah, the Muslims and Melayu do not know how to provide for themselves so they have no choice but to buy things from the others who are able to develop their worlds and economies, and force the Muslim and Melayu worlds to be nothing but parasites of those developed countries.

And without an Islamic and Melayu cinemas, the Muslim and Melayu worlds do not exist as separate entities with their own peculiarities and uniqueness.

Having tall structures and large airports and stadiums and highways, do not ensure that the worlds are developed with the ummah who can hardly feed themselves.

All the economic development that has taken place in the Muslim and Melayu worlds are only to support the expansion of the economy of the west and their dependents.

They do not happen as constructive effort to create unity of the Ummah and the Melayu. So no wonder, whatever happens in each of the countries in these two worlds is not support by those other countries in them, so that we could depend on the support of the wide consumer base which is needed to create markets for them.

The Muslim and mealy leaders in Malaysia and elsewhere think too highly of themselves. And the western-trained economists too are not good for the worlds.

And they think they are ultra-nationalists and religious and god-fearing. They think they are god-send. They are not.

They think they were created by the Almighty. Alas, they were all created by their own political parties and the system that holds them together.

They think too highly of themselves getting all the adulation and authority from having won in the elections as party officials which gave them the arrogance of office to do as they please.

So they come up with slogans which are empty and devoid of any sense; they are not practical calls to unity and development for they are just empty calls for continued support for their depravity.

They are not leaders. They are just publicity seekers.

There is nothing wrong in saying this. This is not even a criticism, but alas it is just a general description.

They cannot blame anyone for uttering such words and sentiments. They also cannot force anyone to think that they are god-send.

The truth is in the ‘pudding’ and the ‘pudding’ has become stale that the Muslim and Melayu Worlds of Nusantara in Southeast Asia are both in the state of despair and destruction.

All of this is due to their incompetence.

They are in a perennial state of denial. They deny that they are not leaders. They think they are good for the Ummah but alas they are not even good for themselves.

But they can attract the attention of the media which cannot avoid covering their daily activities.

If this is not enough, they also have no choice but to cover the activities of their spouses, who hover around them, not because they know how to do things, but how to distract the members of the public.

An equally incompetent media creates more pseudo-characters and pseudo-events, to fill the pages of the papers and air-time.

All this is happening while the Muslim and Melayu Worlds are in such a sad state.

They occasionally meet. They shake hands. Now they have to hug each other tightly to show to the world that they are brothers.

They then give lengthy speeches, which are full of nothing. Their speech writers do not know the crowd; they are too happy with their posts and positions and the rooms they have that block their views from the world around them.

So they do not realize how it has crumbled while they enjoy at the sight of the crowd of media representatives and attentive audiences that often crowd those dignitaries who are living in the world of their own.

The Muslim and Melayu Worlds are indeed incomplete. This is due to the incompetence of their leaders.

What can the ordinary folks in these world do besides; they can review, analyze and propose, but if their elected leaders who think they deserve to be retained in the special positions for live, by virtue of the fact that they had been elected to high office once?

The elected leaders live in the world of their own and they look at it in a blinkered view, so they do not see much.

DUNIA ISLAM DALAM ZAMAN JAHILIAH KEDUA. MUNGKIN INI TIDAK BENAR, SEBAB HANYA PEMIMPIN UGAMA DAN POLITIK DUNIA ISLAM SAHAJA YANG MASIH BERADA DI DALAM

…MEREKA GAGAL MEMAJUKAN UMAT DAN DUNIA ISLAM DAN PENTINGKAN KEDUDUKAN DIRI SENDIRI.
Oleh Mansor Puteh



BESUK 1 SYAWAL DAN HARI PERTAMA RAYA PUASA. SAYA SIARKAN RENCANA INI KHAS UNTUK MERAIKANNYA DENGAN MENGELUH TAHAB KEPIMPINA ULAMAK DAN PEMIMPIN POLITIK SELURUH DUNIA ISLAM YANG MASIH BERADA DITAHAB YANG BEGITU RENDAH. MEREKALAH YANG MENYEBABKAN DUNIA ISLAM BERADA DI ZAMAN KEGELAPAN DALAM ZAMAN JAHILIAH KEDUANYA!

SETELAH 1431 HIJIRIAH, UMAT ISLAM MASIH MENDERITA; DUNIA ISLAM MASIH BERPECAH.

YANG GEMBIRA HANYA ULAMAK DAN PEMIMPIN YANG ADA JAWATAN BERPENDAPATAN TINGGI DAN MEWAH BOLEH BERCERAMAH KE SELURUH NEGARA MENDAPAT SANJUNGAN DARI RAMAI YANG TIDAK SEDAR MEREKA TIDAK DIPEDULI DAN DITERUS DIBIAR DALAM KEADAAN SERBA KEKURANGAN.

Bukti kemunduran pemikiran para ulamak dan pemimpin politik Islam seluruh dunia ialah mereka gagal untuk menyelesaikan masalah di Timur Tengah dan memajukan negara-negara Islam seluruh dunia supaya Dunia Islam boleh menjadi kuasa paling utama sekarang.

Yang malangnya, mereka akan terus sanjung para ulamak dan pemimpin walaupun mereka tertindas di negara sendiri walaupun ternyata para ulamak dan pemimpin politik tidak ada tahab kepimpinan yang tinggi walaupun mereka dapat pendapatan yang tinggi.

Dunia Islam masih wujud seperti parasit kepada dunia barat dan bergantung kepada mereka untuk segala-galanya.

Dan tanpa mereka dunia islam akan terus berada di zaman kegelapan, kemunduran dan kebenakan.

Jangan salahkan Dunia Islam dan Ummah dan jangan sekali-kali salahkan ugama.

Salahkan pemimpin ugama dan pemimpin politik yang telah memporak-perandakan Ummah dan Dunia Islam dengan tahab kepimpinan yang cetek dan tidak bertenaga.

Bertaubatlah kamu wahai para ulamak dan pemimpin politik yang mendatangkan angkara sebelum terlambat. Kalau tidak semua kau akan disumbat ke neraka kelak.

Pemikiran para ulamak di seluruh dunia terlalu cetek dan sempit. Kebanyakan mereka hanya tahu berceramah dan beri pendapat biasa.

Ada yang seperti mahu keluarkan fatwa. Mereka tidak ada kuasa untuk melakukannya kecuali Alahyarham Imam Khomeini sahaja; yang lain-lain hanya boleh beri pendapat.

Para ulamak di seluruh dunia tidak bersatu. Mereka sehingga kini telah gagal untuk menubuhkan sebuah cabang dalam Pertubuhan Negara-Negara Islam atau ‘Organization of Islamic Countries’ atau OIC supaya mereka boleh jadi kuasa besar untuk menentukan hokum terhadap pemimpin Dunia Islam yang telah ingkar.

Tetapi ini tidak terlambat; ia masih boleh dilakukan. Tetapi siapa yang berani untuk mencadangkannya?

OIC telah juga gagal untuk menubuhkan cabang terdiri dikalangan pakar bidang ekonomi dan kesenian khususnya filem.

Jadi akhirnya, OIC hanya penting untuk orang politik diperingkat tertinggi iaitu untuk presiden, perdana menteri, sultan, emir dan pemimpin lain.

Ia tidak penting untuk pakar hebat yang ada di Dunia Islam.

Dan pemimpin-pemimpin di OIC hanya tahu untuk berpura-pura sahaja dan bertemu dua tahun sekali untuk mengeluarkan ketetapan baru yang tidak pernah dilaksanakan sebab pertubuhan ini tidak ada kuasa untuk memaksa sesiapa melaksanakannya, atau ada cabang-cabang di dalam pertubuhan itu untuk menjalankan apa yang telah ditetapkan.

Jadi inilah kisahnya OIC yang telah wujud lebih begitu tetapi ia seperti wujud. Dan setiausaha agongnya seperti tidak ada kuasa dan tidak wujud.

Jadi nasihat saya untuk para ulamak dan pemimpin politik seluruh dunia, untuk mereka bertaubat segera. Kehadiran kau di muka bumi ini telah menyebabkan Umat Islam menderita. Mereka menderita sebab kebenakan kau semua.

Mahu tidak mahu, kau akan tanggong dosa di akhiran nanti.

Segala-gala kedudukan istimewa dan kemewahan serta kebendaan yang kau milikki itu tidak bererti kalau ramai Umat Islam di negara sendiri dan di Dunia Islam menderita, hidup dalam kedaifan dan keboloran.

Kau sahaja yang telah mendapat faedah dari dunia.

Hari ini 1 Syawal, 1431 Hijriah bermulanya Hari Raya Puasa atau Eid Mubarrak, setelah satu bulan Ramadan al-Mubarak.

Saya siarkan rencana ini khusus untuk menyambut perayaan ini. agar apa yang terkandung di dalamnya dapat memberi pengajaran dan petunjuk kepada sesiapa yang rasa ia ada makna kepada mereka.

Para ulamak dan pemimpin politik Islam di malaysia dan seluruh Dunia Islam masih berada di dalam kegelapan dan kegelapan inilah yang mereka mahu dan telah berjaya untuk menyebar ke seluruh Dunia Islam yang sehingga kini masih berada di dalam zaman jahiliah keduanya. semoga mereka itu akan mendapat hidayah dari saranan ini.

Para ulamak dan pemimpin politik di seluruh Dunia Islam bukannya orang yang pandai dalam hal ugama. Buktinya terpampang dari apa yang dapat kita lihat setiap hari dengan adanya perbalahan dan kekecohan yang berlaku di negara-negara Islam.

Tetapi mereka masih tidak sedar bahawa semua masalah ini berpunca dari kelalaian mereka dan dari kebodohan mereka sendiri.

Mereka sudah menjadi angkuh dengan kedudukan masing-masing yang tinggi di kaca mata masyarakat.

Tetapi kedudukan ini tidak bermakna kalau ada negara Islam yang mundur dan ada umat Islam yang keboloran dan menderita akibat dari kebenakan mereka itu.

Sudah 1431 Hijiriah, tetapi masyarakat dan Umat Islam masih berada di dalam serba kedaifan. salah siapa?

Dunia Islam masih di dalam kegelapan dengan umatnya masih beraba-raba tersekat dalam kemunduran.

Pemimpin mereka riang, seperti dunia ini milik mereka; seperti merekalah yang telah banyak berjasa dan perlu disanjungi oleh semua umat islam, walhal, tidak ada apa yang kesemua mereka telah melakukan sehingga kini sehingga seluruh Dunia Islam hancur dan umat islam tidak bersatu.

Pemimpin Dunia Islam cuma tahu menubuhkan OIC tetapi mereka tidak tahu gunanya untuk mendatangkan kebaikan kepada Dunia Islam.

Mereka adakan persidangan kemuncak setiap tahun dan keluarkan ketetapan atau resolusi yang tidak berguna; ia tidak dapat dilaksanakan sebab ketetapan yang dikeluarkan selepas setiap persidangan bodoh sungguh.

Mereka tidak sedar ketetapan sahaja tidak boleh merubah Dunia Islam. Yang boleh merubahnya ialah rancangan jangka pendek, sedang dan panjang yang menyeluruh dan terperinci yang melibatkan semua kegiatan seharian umat dan Dunia Islam itu sendiri.

Jangan salahkan ugama. salahkan pemimpin ugama dan politik yang masih daif. mereka terlalu pentingkan diri sendiri dan tidak tahu jaga kepentingan umat.

Ugama dan Kitab Sucinya telah menyediakan segala-galanya untuk membangunkan umat Islam dan Dunia Islam.

Tetapi malangnya para pengkaji ugama dan ulamak serta pemimpinya masih tidak berjaya mentelaah apa yang terkandung di dalamnya.

Mereka hanya tahu dan pandan mengulang surah-surah dan hokum yang diketahui oleh umum, tetapi tidak tahu mentafsir ayat-ayat suci dengan lebih mendalam.

Oleh sebab itu semua khutbah dan ceramah ugama yang diadakan di padang hambar dengan para pendakwa mendakwah kepada mereka yang sudah menerima Islam dan berceritakan tentang apa itu haram dan apa itu halal sahaja.

Mereka tidak sentuh tentang perkara-perkara lain yang tidak kurang pentingnya iaitu bagaimana untuk merapatkan perpaduan umat seluruh dunia dan menyebarkan syiar Islam ke seluruh dunia serta menaikkan imej Islam yang terjejas oleh sebab pembentukan imej Islam dan Muslim sehingga kini dilakukan oleh orang dan negara bukan Islam.

Mereka bangga jadi ulama dan pemimpin politik tetapi tidak tahu memimpin umat keluar dari kejahilan.

Dan tidak salah kalau ada yang mengecam mereka itu adalah ‘Dajjal Baru’ di dunia sekarang dan dajjalnya bukan dikalangan mereka yang berugama lain dari kita. Mereka adalah bersama kita yang tidak tahu memimpin umat keluar dari segala kejahilan walaupun kejahilan itu terserlah dan terbuka untuk dilihat oleh semua.

Tetapi mereka masih lagi benak tidak tahu untuk mengatasinya.

Mereka mesti keluar dari kejahilan mereka sendiri dengan para ulamak tidak perlu mendabik dada dan tunjuk kepada semua yang mereka itu pakar berpidato tentang ugama.

Pemimpin politik pula tidak perlu menembehkan kejahilan mereka dengan berpura-pura peka dengan kesengsaraan umat sekelilling mereka dan kelillingkan diri mereka dengan pakar-pakar dalam bidang lain supaya pertumbuhan dalam Dunia Islam dapat dinikmati oleh ramai yang tidak sama dengan mereka.

MALAYSIA NEGARA ISLAM…MALAYSIA SEBUAH NEGARA SEKULAR. YANG MANA SATU? KEDUA-DUANYA SEKALI.

oleh Mansor Puteh


NEGARA SEKULAR ADALAH NEGARA BUKAN MENGAMALKAN PRINSIP KRISTIAN DAN KATHOLIK.

MALAYSIA SEBUAH NEGARA YANG UNIK. IA SEBUAH NEGARA ISLAM. DAN IS JUGA SEBUAH NEGARA SEKULAR.

INI TENTU BOLEH MENGELIRUKAN RAMAI. KENAPA TIDAK? SEBAB ISIU INI TIDAK PERNAH DIBINCANG SECARA WARAS OLEH BANYAK ORANG YANG MENENTANG DAN MENGECAMNYA BILA MEREKA DENGAR ORANG LAIN KATA IA SEBUAH NEGARA ISLAM.

Mereka ada tafsiran sendiri. tafsiran mereka tidak tepat. mereka keliru dengan defini ‘sekular’ sebab mereka tidak faham bagaimana sistem pemerintahan dan kerajaan ini telah diwujudkan di Eropah dulu.

Jadi is adalah satu sistem kerajaan dan pemerintahan yang hanya untuk Eropah sahaja dan tidak di tempat lain, jauh sekali untuk Malaysia yang ada sistem kerajaan tersendiri.

Kalau ada yang menganggap ia mempunyai sistem sekular yang bermaksud salah iaitu bukan Islam ia adalah disebabkan sistem ini mahu dipaksakan kepada Malaya atau Tanah Melayu dan Malaysia oleh kuasa penjajah iaitu Inggeris yang ternyata sekali mempunyai sistem sekular.

Dan sistem serong ini sekarang mahu disokong pula oleh orang bukan Melayu dan bukan Islam yang ternyata sekali rasa mereka lebih beruntung kalau Malaysia sekarang tidak mempunyai sistem kerajaan Islam.

Mereka, seperti kuasa Inggeris adalah terdiri dari orang yang mempunyai keturunan yang berasal dari negeri luar. Jadi mereka ada sebab untuk menyokong sistem asal yang ada di Malaysia dulu, atau mahu membetulkan perubahan yang mahu dibuat oleh penjajah tetapi gagal sehinggakan usaha ini mahu diambil alih oleh bukan Melayu sekarang.

Isiu tentang samada Malaysia sebuah negara sekular atau Islam telah wujud sejak sekian lama.

Orang yang paling berminat untuk memberi pendapat mereka tentangnya adalah tidak lain dari Karpal Singh dan beberapa orang lain.

Kita pasti selepas mereka tentu perkara ini.perkara ini tidak akan menjadi perbalahan; ia akan tamat sebab ia tidak mungkin boleh menarik perhatian rakyat Malaysia bukan Melayu lain dalam generasi baru.

Perbalahan lapok ini adalah sisa-sisa dari zaman penjajahan dan selepas itu, sehingga sebelum Merdeka dan dikeluarkan balik sehingga sekarang.

Kita tidak perlu terikut-ikut dengan karenahnya; kita perlu beri dia sedikit pelajaran tentang apa itu pemerintahan dan kerajaan sekular supaya dia tahu, dan supaya dan mereka sekepala dengan dia dalam perkara ini tidak akan terus terkeliru dan boleh mengelirukan orang lain termasuk orang Islam di Malaysia sendiri.

Dia begitu pasti yang Malaysia sebuah negara sekular. dia lihat dalam perlembagaan dan buat keputusan ini.

Tetapi apaah yang dia katakan itu benar? Mungkin tidak. Sebab mungkin dia tidak faham apa itu negara secular. Ia tidak seperti yang dia fikiran.

Malah, ramai orang lain yang anggap Malaysia juga berfikiran seperti itu. Ini disebabkan mereka juga tidak faham apa sebenarnya yang dimaksudkan sebuah negara secular.

Sebenarnya Malaysia adalah sebuah negara sekular. Dan Malaysia adalah juga sebuah negara Islam.

Ini tentu mengejutkan ramai orang khususnya Karpal Singh yang sering mahu anggap Malaysia sebuah negara sekular dan bukan Islam, sebab dia beranggapan bahawa negara Islam tidak disebut dalam perlembagaan.

Malah, negara sekular juga tidak disebut didalamnya. Jadi apa yang dia katakan itu sebenarnya adalah anggapannya sahaja. Dia pilih sekular sebab Islam tidak disebut, dan tidak sebaliknya.

Sebenarnya, Malaysia adalah sebuah negara Islam dan sekular.

Tentu tidak ramai yang sedar bahawa negara sekular itu adalah satu konsep pemerintahan atau kerajaan yang telah diperkenalkan di Eropah bilamana mereka mahu pisahan cara pemerintahan diantara Gereja dan Politik.

Sekular di sini bererti bahawa negara-negara di Eropah itu bukan mengguna sistem Kristen atau Katholik.

Jadi, oleh sebab Malaysia tidak mengamalkan sistem seperti ini, maka ia boleh dianggap sekular.

Tetapi ini tidak bermakna ia tidak Islam.

Malaysia sebuah negara Islam.

Walaupun ini tidak disebut dalam perlembagaan, tetapi inilah hakikatnya.

Ini disebab Malaysia sebuah kerajaan yang diketuai oleh Yang diPertuan Agong dan kumpulan sistem kerajaan sembilan negeri-negeri beraja.

Maka tidak secara langsung, Malaysia adalah sebuah Kesultanan dan Kerajaan Islam.

Ini diperkuatkan lagi dengan peruntukan dalam perlembagaan Malaysia sendiri yang tertulis bahawa Islam adalah ugama rasmi.

Walaupun negara-negara lain ada raja mereka seperti di Siam dan Jepun, tetapi peruntukan seperti ini tidak ada dalam perlembagaan mereka yang menguntukkan ugama rasmi negara mereka.

Jadi, anggapan Karpal Singh tentang Malaysia bukan sebuah negara Islam dan sebuah negara sekular tidak benar.

Malaysia, sebenarnya sebuah negara sekular dan juga Islam.

Jadi isiu ini mesti tamat di sini sahaja. Tidak ada guna untuk ia dilanjutkan. Dan Karpal dan lain-lain yang mempertikaikan tentang perkara ini harus juga terima hakikat bahawa Malaysia adalah sebuah negara Islam, dan sekular di sini tidak wujud samasekali.

Sebenarnya perkara dan perbalahan seperti ini sudah lama boleh dijelaskan tetapi pihak tertentu yang lebih arif dalam perkara ugama dan politik dunia telah gagal untuk menjelaskannya.

Jadi perbalahan tentangnya telah dibenar untuk berlarutan sehingga sekarang sebab tokoh ugama dan para ulama di Malaysia dan di seluruh Dunia Islam telah gagal untuk membuat pengajian tentang apa itu negara sekular.

Kalau mereka telah melakukannya lama dulu, perkara ini tidak akan berlarutan sehingga kini.

Mana pakar dalam bidang ugama Islam di Universiti Al-Azhar dalam hal ini? Mana ulamak terbilang dalam hal ini?

Kenapa mereka semua berdiam dan tidak boleh beri pandangan dalam hal ini?

Ternyata sekali mereka bukan tokoh yang hebat dalam bidang ugama. Ternyata sekali pemimpin di Dunia Islam telah gagal untuk menangani perkara ini dengan bijak dan beri penerangan dan pendidikan kepada mereka yang masih bebal supaya mereka tidak akan terus membuat anggapan dan mahu buat andian sendiri.

Kalau benar dalam perlembagaan Malaysia ada sistem undang-undang sivil, maka ia adalah sesuatu yang asing kepada negara. Dan ini harus diperbetulkan lagi-lagi apabila kita ketahui bahawa Malaysia telah lama berada dibawah belenggu penjajah Inggeris yang telah beria-ia mahu memperkenalkan sistem kerajaan dan undang-undang mereka.

Jadi apa yang mereka telah melakukan dulu adalah salah dan kita semua harus menerima hakikat ini dan terima bahawa hokum hudud adalah yang paling sesuai untuk sebuah negara seperti Malaysia dan juga untuk negara-negara Islam lain.

Dan Malaysia serta negara-negara Islam lain juga harus mengambil hari Jumaat sebagai hari cuti am dan bukan hari Minggu seperti yang berlaku seakarang, kecuali dibeberapa buah negeri Melayu seperti Kedah dan Kelantan.

PEMIMPIN-PEMIMPIM MALAYSIA DAN INDONESIA SYOK SENDIRI.

…MEREKA MEMPUNYAI ANGAN-ANGAN MAT JENIN MAHU PUPUK PERSAUDARAAN DIANTARA KEDUA BUAH NEGARA TETAPI TIDAK TAHU BAGAIMANA IA BOLEH DILAKUKAN. MEREKA HANYA TAHU BERPELUK-PELUK DAN BERI UCAPAN PANJANG DAN KOSONG.
Oleh Mansor Puteh



MACAM-MACAM CARA TELAH MEREKA LAKUKAN SEPERTI MENUBUH KUMPULAN TOKOH TERBILANG ATAU ‘EMINENT PERSONS GROUP’ (EPG) DAN PIHAK MEDIA TUBUHKAN PULA ASWAMI.

KESEMUANYA GAGAL; IA HANYA BERJAYA MENARIK PERHATIAN MEDIA DAN MENAIKKAN IMEJ BEBERAPA ORANG.

PEMIMPIN MALAYSIA DAN INDONESIA TIDAK TAHU PUPUK PERSAUDARAAN DIANTARA MALAYSIA DAN INDONESIA. MEREKA TIDAK TAHU PUPUK PERHUBUNGAN DIANTARA NEGARA-NEGARA ISLAM.

Mereka hanya tahu untuk menubuhkan pertubuhan negara-negara islam atau ‘Organization of Islamic Countries’ (OIC) tetapi tidak tahu menggunanya dengan betul walaupun pertubuhan ini sudah wujud sekian lama.

Mereka hanya tahu berpeluk-peluk beri ucapan panjang-lebar puji diri sendiri, tetapi rakyat kedua buah negara bergelut dengan perbalahan remeh-temeh.

Masalahnya ialah semua pemimpin Melayu di Malaysia dan Indonesia terlalu pentingkan kedudukan masing-masing dan diri sendiri.

Dan mereka hanya boleh lihat dunia dari kacamata yang sempit mereka. Mereka gemar dipuji dan disanjong.

Sekali-sekala mereka turun padang untuk tunjuk muka – atau untuk mendapat perhatian media, kononnya mereka peka.

Mereka tidak peka; mereka tetap pekak kepada tuntutan rakyat jelata.

Bukti kejahilan mereka dan kesilapan mereka terserlah bila tercutusnya perbalahan tentang perkara-perkara yang dianggap remeh-temeh.

Dan dari perbalahan yang tercetus itu maka terserlahlah kepincangan dan kebodohan mereka dan hulubalang mereka yang sehingga kini gemar pentingkan diri masing-masing.

Dalam bahasa Inggeris, boleh dikatakan, pemimpin-pemimpin Malaysia dan Indonesia terlalu ‘self-centered and self-important. they do not know what are good for themselves, but not knowing what are good for the people of the two countries. They like to live in a world of fantasy.’

Jadi apa yang berlaku sekarang sebenarnya adalah disebabkan apa yang pemimpin di Malaysia dan Indonesia tidak lakukan dulu sebab mustahil perbalahan yang muncul sekarang boleh wujud dengan tiba-tiba tanpa ia dibenarkan berlaku oleh pemimpin kedua buah negara yang tidak peka dengan kehendak rakyat dikedua buah negara.

Mereka hanya tahu untuk puji diri sendiri dan tidak tahu merapatkan perhubungan sesama bangsa dan diantara kedua buah negara dengan mengguna cara-cara melampaui politik.

Cara diplomasi mengutamakan pemimpin negara tidak sesuai dalam era sekarang dan ugama dan bangsa yang sama tidak menentukan perhubungan sentiasa era.

Tidak ada seorang perdana menteri Malaysia dan presiden Indonesia yang telah mengorak langkah kukuh untuk mewujudkan persefahaman diantara kedua buah negara.

Menteri-menteri kebudayaan dan luar negeri masing-masing semuanya tidak tahu guna cara untuk merapatkan perhubungan; kesemua mereka beria-ia pandan menunjukkan muka mereka dalam acara rasmi dan berpidato dengan lebar memberi pandangan yang tidak menyakinkan, yang mempunyai kandongan yang cetek.

Mereka mahu bergembira dan dapat tarik perhatian media kedua buah negara. Ini sahaja yang mereka tahu untuk melakukan.

Dan duta-duta kedua buah negara juga tidak tahu guna kedudukan khas mereka untuk beri maklumat yang baik kepada kerajaan masing-masing bagi mengubal dasar yang berguna kepada kedua buah negara.

Kesemua duta-duta mereka di Kuala Lumpur dan Jakarta telah gagal memainkan peranan bagi merapatkan perhubungan diantara kedua buah negara.

Mereka terperap dalam pejabat di kedutaan masing-masing dan hanya sekali-sekala buat kenyataan umum yang tidak menyakinkan sesiapa.

Komen mereka tentang perbalahan yang dicetuskan anak-anak gampang kumpulan haram Bendera di Jakarta menunjukkan betapa ceteknya pemikiran duta-duta tersebut.

Ia juga menunjukkan betapa ceteknya pemikiran pemimpin kedua buah negara, termasuk ahli politik dan cendiakawan masing-masing serta penganlisa politik kedua buah negara.

Mereka telah membuktikan bahawa menganuti sama ugama dan dalam satu bangsa atau rumpun tidak boleh memastikan yang rakyat Malaysia dan Indonesia boleh bersatu hati dan kepala.

Ini disebabkan kegiatan seharian mereka tidak sama-sama mengangkatkan persefahaman dan mewujudkan persaudaraan.

Jadi apa yang tidak dilakukan boleh cetuskan perbalahan bila-bila masa sementara pemimpin kedua buah negara berfikiran sempit dan rasa bangga dengan kedudukan politik di negara masing-masing.

Perhubungan diantara Amerika dan England tidak berpaksikan kepada perhubungan peribadi pemimpin kedua buah negara mereka yang hanya boleh berlaku beberapa kali setahun; ia berpaksikan perhubungan erat diantara rakyat kedua buah negara.

Perhubungan diantara Malaysia dan Indonesia, sebaliknya hanya berlaku diantara pemimpin dan tidak diantara rakyat.

Oeh sebab itu perhubungan diantara kedua buah negara tidaklah erat seperti yang mahu dianggap oleh pemimpin.

Apa yang perlu dipupuk bukan perhubungan diantara pemimpin tetapi dianatara rakyat kedua buah negara untuk kegiatan seharian.

Perhubungan unik diantara Malaysia dan Indonesia tidak dipupuk dengan cara baru; ia dianggap enteng oleh kedua belah pihak.

Apa yang sebenarnya berlaku ialah desakan pihak di Jakarta dan bukan seluruh Indonesia yang mahukan cetuskan perbalahan.

Yang melakukan angkara di hadapan kedutaan besar malaysia di Jakarta adalah orang yang menolak nilai Islam dan yang telah menjatuhkan ugama Islam di dunia.

Dan mereka telah juga menjatuhkan imej Republik Indonesia dan pemimpin serta institusi kepolisian mereka.

Jadi pertemuan diantara pemimpin dari Malaysia dan Indonesia pada 6 September ini tidak mungkin boleh meleraikan perbalahan yang telah tercetus dan yang boleh berlaku dimasa-masa depan.

Dan ini tidak mungkin boleh dilaksanakan selagi pemimpin di kedua buah negara tidak anggaapnya penting.

Dan mereka akan terus menjalanan kegiatan seharian mereka tanpa memikirkan tentang perhubungan diantara rakyat kedua buah negara yang amat memerlukan satu sistem yang padu untuk diguna setiap hari.

Sedangkan pemimpin hanya tahu mengadakan mesyuarat tahunan dan buat lawatan rasmi dan dapat liputan meluas di media masing-masing. Ini sahaja yang mereka mahu, dan mereka akan anggap mereka telah melakukan sesuatu yang baik untuk merapatkan perhubungan diantara kedua buah negara.

Diplomasi lapok tidak sesuai dengan dunia sekarang.

Pengelaman yang para diplomat kedua buah negara ada juga tidak berguna.

Mereka suka anjur acara besar, menunjukkan keakraban diantara mereka. mereka berpeluk-peluk untuk menunjukkan suasana di negara masing-masing tenang dan rakyat kedua buah negara gembira.

Dan mereka buat kenyataan rasmi dengan mengaku bahawa perhubungan diantara Malaysia dan Indonesia kuat.

Mereka tidak tahu berita dan liputan yang mereka dapat dari kegiatan media ini hanya baik untuk media; ia tidak baik untuk rakyat jelata.

Itulah sebabnya kenapa rakyat di Indonesia cemas. Itulah sebabnya wujud pertubuhan seperti Bendera.

Itulah juga sebabnya maka ada-ada sahaja perbalahan diantara rakyat Malaysia.

Inilah yang yang pemimpin di Malaysia dan Indonesia tidak tahu.
