…AND THE GREAT FAMINE CAUSED THE CHINESE TO FLEE FROM
SOUTH CHINA TO GO TO NANYANG OR
NUSANTARA MELAYU AND SAVED BY THE KIND-HEARTED NATIVES. – PART II.
By Mansor Puteh
Unfortunately, about one and a half years later, Sultan Hussain Shah died. And he was buried at the Masjid Trengkerah in Melaka where his modest mausoleum is still well-looked after.
Even his descendants may not be aware of him being buried at the masjid in Melaka as I have not heard of any of them visiting it or talking about.
I am surprised that they are no photos of the sultan even at the
Center which is the new center of the
that was created from the Istana Kampung Gelam. Singapore
Surely, the British would have got someone to draw pictures of him and also him with Raffles when he was installed Sultan by Raffles at the
There are many drawings and paintings of Raffles and Farquhar, but none of Sultan Hussain Shah, who the British had used to ‘steal’
If Farquhar could bully Sultan Hussain Shah when he was alive, his successor, too knew he could not do much.
In the end, the Sultanate of Singapore fell into disgrace with the British finally managing to tell everybody that
had now become a British colony and with the British were to quickly importing
Chinese coolies and Indian laborers into the island with the sole intention of
displacing the majority Melayu there. Singapore
They could not take other Melayu in the region especially Tanah Melayu or
If it had remained a Melayu-majority the people could definitely want to take it back to the Sultanate of Johor.
And it is this British colony that Lee Kuan Yew and his predecessor David Saul Marshall who was chief minister, got and for which Kuan Yew thought he could use it to affect the racial balance in
if the country was formed
with his ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ concept which sounded redundant as it was devious
and worse, evil. Malaysia
It was stunning for a Jew in
to have gained the trust of so many voters in the country, despite him being a
Jew and a member of such a small community there. Singapore
But that was before Zionism and the creation of the Zionist state of
Who then gave the British the right to colonize
? After all Raffles only
wanted to establish a mere ‘trading post’ so that the EIC he was working for
could trade with the neighboring countries. Singapore
And didn’t anyone realize that
at that time was not a state, but was still very much a part of the Sultanate
of Johor? Singapore
Why was it necessary then for Singapore to be given British colony status, for which Kuan Yew was said to be the champion calling for independence, for which they were finally allowed by the British to hold a general election or referendum to decide if Singapore would remain in the British Commonwealth or to become an independent state? This happened in 1959.
And from there Kuan Yew managed to maneuver around to get ‘his country’ to become part of the Federation of Malaysia, when he realized that Singapore was too small and too vulnerable to be an independent state, and worse, with no natural resources.
He thought by doing so he could also manipulate the status he would get to introduce the unusual concept of ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ thus displacing the nine Melayu Sultans whose states had earlier agreed to merge to form Persekutuan Tanah Melayu or
On 16 September, 1963, the Federation of Malaysia was formed, but barely two years later Singapore was expelled from the federation by Tunku Abdul Rahman, because he did not want Kuan Yew to continue misusing his status as the chief minister of Singapore, now that the state is just one of the thirteen in the Federation, to push for his personal agenda which is to establish the Malaysian Malaysia concept where everyone is equal and no one race is superior to the other.
But all this could not happen if the Natives and especially Melayu in Tanah Melayu or
were not charitable and accommodative as well as supportive. Melayu Land
If they did not have those traits, chances are the Chinese immigrants would have got it tough, with many of them leaving back for China if they did not want to fully assimilate with the locals as their brethren had done in all the other countries in Nanyang or Southeast Asia.
(Note: No one knows why Malaysia was formed on 16 September, 1963 which is Kuan Yew’s birthday, when he was forty years, if it was a coincidence.)
He did not seem to realize that
could only be formed with the consent of the nine Melayu rulers and Persekutuan
Tanah Melayu was already a Melayu state with a vast Melayu majority. Malaysia
With this Kuan Yew must have thought that if there was a general election is PAP could win it and he could also become prime minister of Malaysia, and from there turn Malaysia into what we can see in Singapore today which is a Chinese majority state, with the Melayu there looking like displaced citizens.
Tunku was right in evicting
which ended Kuan Yew’s personal agenda. Malaysia
But Tunku was also not right in doing so, especially when he did not realize how the population of the Melayu then as it is still today expanded more than that of the Chinese, especially also when many Chinese would opt to return to China.
And Malaysia too can start to import more Melayu in the region an from Indonesia to cause the population size of the Melayu to further increase like what it is today in Malaysia, with the percentage of the Melayu now at sixty-five or seventy percent compared to that of the Chinese which is at twenty-five percent, a reduction of fifteen percent.
By 2050 the population of the Melayu in
would be eighty percent and the Chinese at just fifteen percent. Malaysia
So who was smarter, Kuan Yew or Tunku? Tunku was only smart in expelling
Singapore from but he was no so smart not
to know that he could manipulate the population status to benefit the Melayu. Malaysia
This may have also ended Kuan Yew’s secret mission which is to turn Malaysia into a republic with him as its first president, since he did not seem to agree to have the Melayu as a dominant race in the country, where everybody is equal which could also mean that he would also do away with the Melayu rulers altogether, much like what the British had tried to do by introducing the Malayan Union concept which the Melayu and rulers rejected outright.
The Communists did not reject this idea, as long as it would mean that the Melayu dominance of
be diminished or destroyed altogether. Malaysia
There many Chinese who had fled South China to come to Tanah Melayu and other countries in Southeast Asia or Nusantara Melayu or the Melayu World, who had found their pot of gold, so they could return to their villages in triumph, showing to his relatives and friends that he had succeeded, and that his trip to Nanyang or South Seas Lands proved successful.
The Great Famine in the early 1900s had forced many young Chinese men to flee their remote villages to save their lives and to find their pot of gold working as coolies in the tin mines. They also took with them the negative aspects of life in
So if not for the Great Famine, the Chinese would not have bothered to also come to:p>
turn the island into another state with them having a majority and by deceit
created by Raffles and the British caused it to become a British colony. Singapore
Perhaps if the matter is taken to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Johor can reclaim the island back.
