IS SINGAPORE AN ILLEGITIMATE STATE CREATED BY THE BRITISH FROM LAND STOLEN FROM THE MELAYU AND JOHOR – FROM A MELAYU-MUSLIM SULTANATE TO A CHINESE REPUBLIC? – PART I.

By Mansor Puteh


(Note: Astro Awani provided the live transmission on the funeral service of Lee Kuan Yew starting from the time the casket bearing his remains is being taken from the Singapore Parliament House to the auditorium at the National University of Singapore and later to the Mandai Crematorium from 12.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. on 29 March, 2015.

His son was invited to give the first eulogy to his father followed by Singapore President Tony Tan and the other former members of the Kuan Yew cabinet, with three persons speaking in Mandarin, Melayu and then Tamil.

‘THE INTERVIEW’ CREATED BY ROGUE PRODUCERS OF HOLLYWOOD WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAILED.

…THEY ARE THE ‘CHARLIE HEBDO’ OR ‘THE NUTS’ OF THE FILM INDUSTRY IN AMERICA.          
By Mansor Puteh



‘The Interview’ was not shown in the cinemas in Malaysia and it will never happen.

In fact it was also not shown in the cinemas in many other countries; and only those in America and the west showed it.

The producers of this film must be put in the same league as the cartoonists at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine of Paris.

DAP STATE ASSEMBLYMAN FOR BALAKONG CAUGHT GAMBLING AND HE WAS GIVEN A THREE-MONTH SUSPENSION BY HIS PARTY.

…ANWAR IBRAHIM WAS SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS JAIL FOR SODOMY, BUT DAP DIDN’T CARE ABOUT IT AND HOW THE DAP AND PAS ARE TWO PARTIES WITH CONFLICTING INTERESTS AND GOALS WITH ONE TRYING TO ESTABLISH A SECULAR STATE WHILE THE OTHER AN ISLAMIC ONE.  
By Mansor Puteh


I can say I know Balakong quiet well; I live nearby this area. It is not quiet and also not well. By right it does not need anyone to represent it in parliament or the state assembly. There is anarchy here in more ways than one.

But the laws of the land say they have to include this area for political parties to put their men to get the votes to represent them in parliament and the state assembly.

MELAYU RAYA COULD HAVE CAUSED SINGAPORE NOT TO EXIST AS WHAT IT IS TODAY.

…CHANCES ARE LEE KUAN YEW WOULD ONLY BE A STATE MINISTER OF SINGAPORE WITH SINGAPORE HAVING A GOVERNOR, AND A MELAYU ONE AT THAT LIKE LIM GUAN ENG OF PULAU PINANG.   
By Mansor Puteh


If not for his Baba background, Lee Kuan Yew would not be what he had been, being able to go deeper into the psyche of the Melayu in Singapore and Tanah Melayu or Malaya then, and being able to speak fluent Melayu which also gave him a good advantage over the other Chinese leaders.

If he had been just like the other Chinese, chances are he might not be able to speak in Melayu to be able to mix with them a lot more and thus became just like the other Chinese leaders in Singapore who were not Baba or Straits-born Chinese.

‘TREE OF SORROW’ BY MALIM GHOZALI PK

… A PROMISING NOVEL IN ENGLISH BY A MELAYU AUTHOR WHICH HAS SUCH A GOOD AND INTERESTING PREMISE BUT WEAK PLOT AND CHARACTERS.
By Mansor Puteh


This novel can be rewritten to make it more interesting by putting it in the context of the overall history of the country, Malaysia today or Tanah Melayu then when it came under British colonial rule that not many today would know or are aware of.

I would also like to see how some of the British officers who had to do what they had to do despite their personal contempt of the orders they had to execute, and relating how they had to come here from having assigned a foreign duty by the Colonial Office in London.

RAJA HUSSAIN SHAH, RAFFLES, FARQUHAR AND HOW SINGAPORE WAS A LAND STOLEN FROM THE MELAYU AND JOHOR

…WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY MEANT TO BE A MERE TRADING POST AND NOT A SOVEREIGN STATE.
By Mansor Puteh



Singapore is a land that was stolen by the British and given to the Chinese after they brought in enough of the coolies to overwhelm the Melayu who up to the 1800s were in the majority.

The Melayu could still be in the majority if the British had not brought in the Chinese and also Indians from their respective countries, but more Melayu from the neighboring islands and Indonesia.

LEE KUAN YEW AND THE STRANGE STORY OF AN ISLAND

…HE CAN NEVER BE APPRECIATED BY SUCH A SMALL GROUP OF SINGAPOREANS AND FORMER SINGAPOREANS FOR HAVING DONE SO MUCH FOR SINGAPORE.
By Mansor Puteh


It is described as a small red dot in the sea of green, whatever that means… It is definitely not the flag of Bangladesh.

It is Singapore being surrounded by Melayu and Muslim countries of Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.

CHARLIE HEBDO SACRIFICED THE DEATH OF SOME OF THEIR CARTOONISTS AND STAFF TO PROVE A POINT THAT THEY BELIEVE IN THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

– BY THEIR OWN WEIRD DEFINITION WHICH IN THE PROCESS ALSO HELPED TO DESTROY WHAT FRANCE STOOD FOR. IT IS DEFINITELY A STUPID WAY TO PROVE A POINT, AND DEADLY TOO.  
By Mansor Puteh


Those smart and confused people at Charlie Hebdo should have known better. The French and their president, too should have known better, not to be misled by what they think is right, which could create unintended consequences.

Maybe the issue or controversy surrounding Charlie Hebdo had died, but it is also good to bring it to life for just a bit or while more, to nail an interesting point that had not been raised when the issue was hot.
