Dear Tun,

Recently you have written too many politically influenced articles in your blog.

By doing so, now everyone knows that BN is not in a good position to win in the next general election.
For me, this article is a bit unusual as you wrote about an immature 19 years old college student who stepped on DS Najib’s and his beautiful wife’s picture. The way I see it… he is just an immature 19 years old college student. It is more frightening to see despicable acts of mature adult of UMNO and PERKASA members. Their despicable acts were never been reported by the mainstream media. They are the real people who only know how to hate and have done nothing to make this country better, not an immature 19 years old college student. By doing what they did they have demonstrated that they and the people who lead them are unfit to rule this independent country. They only know hate. Hatred does not develop nations.

From the total of 7,878,875 voters in Malaysia’s 12th General Election in 2008, 3,796,464 voters (46.75%) voted for PR. Any of these voters steps on DS Najib’s picture? Do these voters have hatred in their heart? Do these voters have no contribution to Malaysia? Majority of these voters are from Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Kelantan. Do they not contribute to those states? Do they not love their country? Do they not cherish the freedom and merdeka which they are enjoying now?,_2008

I realised that running a country is not like running a company.
However, there are commonalities between running a country and a company.
Let us imagine that Malaysia is a company… Let us imagine that Malaysia is Malaysia Berhad, let us imagine that the citizens of Malaysia are the shareholders and the politicians in our government are the chairman and directors while the government staffs are the managers and employees of Malaysia Berhad.
As shareholders of Malaysia Berhad, the citizens of Malaysia will appoint the chairman and directors of Malaysia Berhad whom then will protect and act on the interest of the shareholders. This appointment is ON A CONTRACT BASIS. The chairman and directors will then be paid accordingly, will be given allowances and perks. If the majority shareholders are unhappy with the chairman and directors, the majority shareholders may appoint new chairman and directors after their contract expired.
All this will be done in a PROFESSIONAL MANNER. There shall be no issue on ‘jasamu dikenang’ or ‘janji ditepati’ or ‘janji tidak ditepati’ or ‘janji demokrasi’ etc as the chairman and directors were paid by the shareholders to carry out their duties.
The followings are the sources of capital entrusted by the shareholders of Malaysia Berhad to the chairman, directors, managers and staffs of Malaysia Berhad :-
1. Corporate income tax.
2. Individual income tax.
3. Sales tax.
4. Service tax.
5. Excise duty.
6. Licences.
7. Permits.
8. Summons.
9. Fines and penalties.
10. Revenues other than the above.
The chairman, directors, managers and staffs of Malaysia Berhad are entrusted to manage the above capitals in the interest of the Malaysia Berhad’s shareholders.
It is true that most of us do not experience what happened in Malaysia before 1957. However, some of the members from both camps of candidates (BN and PR) do have similar experience with Tun Mahathir prior to 1957. Other than Tun Mahathir, Nik Aziz (born in 1931 in Kelantan) and Karpal Singh (born in 1940 in Penang) also have the SIMILAR experienced as they were from Kelantan and Penang. Anwar Ibrahim (born in 1947 in Penang) and Lim Kit Siang (born in 1941 in Johore) also have experience living in British Malaya.
Now things have change in Malaysia. Now, PR is not only an opposition party. PR is now a legitimate government in Penang, Kedah, Kelantan and Selangor. The MAJORITY OF PEOPLE IN PENANG, KEDAH, KELANTAN, SELANGOR, PERAK AND KUALA LUMPUR have chose PR. PR HAS MAJORITY VOTES IN THESE FIVE STATES AND ALSO IN THE FEDERAL TERRITORY OF KUALA LUMPUR. This has never happen before.
All of us cherish our Merdeka celebration regardless of which political parties we support.

Anyone knows who peed on Nik Aziz’s picture?
Anyone knows who showed their sexy buttocks in front of Ambiga’s house?
Anyone knows who threw shoes to Anwar Ibrahim in a mosque?
They only know hate. Hatred does not develop nations.
The truth is… there are only small minority of the supporters of both political parties who misbehaved. Supporters of both political parties will try to leverage on this issue.
The majority of both political parties do not misbehave but… they keep silence when the other supporters of the same political party which they support misbehaved.

I also will not going to step on the pictures of any people and I also will not going to throw shoes to any people (whether in the mosque or anywhere), and I will also not going to show my buttock in front of Ambiga’s house or to the photo of DS Najib Razak and his beautiful wife.
Shame on both political party supporters.

Dua-dua pon sama saja. Penyokong parti lain buat tak senonoh dia ‘kondem’ tapi bila penyokong parti dia buat tak senonoh dia senyap aje.

Bila Amerika mengamalkan ‘double standard’ dia ‘kondem’ tapi, dia sendiri pon mengamalkan ‘double standard’.


Apa yang Tun Mahathir cerita?
Ini artikel beliau


1. We are 55-years old. This blessed multi-racial country of ours has been free for 55 years. For some Malaysians of 55 years and under, to be free of foreign rule is no big deal. Of course we are free, so what?
2. Jalur Gemilang! Just a rag – a strip of coloured cloth. It can be of any colour. What’s so great about the stripes, the star and the moon. Why must we be loyal to a piece of coloured cloth?

3. And the anthem. Is it relevant? Why cannot we sing some other song?

4. These are said to be symbols. Symbols of what??

5. Of course we are free of foreign rule. For these 55 and under, it is unthinkable to be under foreign rule. What we know is rule by some Malaysians. And they deny us freedom. We cannot demonstrate. We cannot step on pictures. We cannot change the colour of our flag – that rag. We cannot sing other anthems.

6. We cannot do this; we cannot do that. So where is the freedom?

7. I am past 55 years. I lived under foreign rule. I lived under the British when all white men must be addressed as Tuan (master) and white women Mem (a corruption of Madame I suppose). Ours was to obey, theirs was to command. Politics was out of bounds.

8. I lived under the Japanese. We feared for our women. They had to cut their hair short and wore men’s clothing. They hid in the attic, fearing being raped by Japanese soldiers.

9. The Kampetai or military police had a list of Chinese who had actively supported China against the Japanese. Many were executed by decapitation with the curved Japanese sword.

10. Many were arrested and tortured. Water was hosed into their stomach and then forced out through their mouths and noses. They either died or they confessed to whatever crime they were accused of. Then they were taken out and shot.

11. Thailand allowed the Japanese army to land on its beaches and to march down the Isthmus of Kra into British Malaya. After two months of retreat, the British surrendered.

12. As a reward for their cooperation, the Thais were given four northern Malay state – Kedah, Perlis, Kelantan and Terengganu.

13. I experienced Thai rules. We had to respect their flag and anthem.

14. One evening as I was passing the Alor Star Police Station I heard the anthem and I froze, looking up at the Thai flag being lowered.

15. An old Malay man cycled slowly past apparently unaware that he had to get off his bike and stand at attention.

16. The anthem ended as the flag came down. I heard a shout and a Thai soldier who had been standing at attention ran after the old cyclist. He gave a flying kick to the face and the old man fell off his bicycle, lying still on the road.

17. I did not go to his help. I was afraid of the soldier who seemed about to kick the man again. He changed his mind and went away.

18. The Allied forces won the Pacific War and the British returned. They had promised
to defend us from foreign attacks. They had failed. We had to live under the Japanese and the Thais.

19. No apologies were offered. They merely threatened to depose the Malay rulers if they did not sign the MacMichael Treaty surrendering their states outright to the British. In the meantime we were ruled by the British Military Administration. No democracy.

20. Then the worm turned. The docile Malays united as never before and forced the Malayan Union to be aborted. Eventually the states of the Peninsular and then the states of Sarawak and Sabah achieved independence as Malaysia.

21. To me being independent will always be something I will cherish. As a Malaysian I don’t have to call foreigners “Master” or Tuan. We don’t have to fear foreigners in our country. We will not have our heads chopped off. We will not be kicked by foreigners in our own country.

22. Yes, our Governments are not perfect. I was expelled from my party. I was ostracised. When I retired I was treated like an enemy of the Government.

23. Others were detained without trial. A few claimed they were tortured. Maybe they were. But that is not the policy of our Governments. The law does not permit that though there are more advanced countries where torture is legalised.

24. There are good things and bad things, good governance and bad governance in independent Malaysia. It is not perfect. But which country is perfect. In America there is much inequality with 1% being extremely rich and 99% poor according to Nobel Laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz. Europe has been in financial crisis since 2008 and appears unable to get out of it.

25. In the Middle East there is the so-called Arab Spring. Many have died. Revolutionary successes have not brought the promised good Governments and prosperity yet. It will take time.

26. Where else? Africa! I don’t think the Africans are better off than Malaysians. Latin America! Yes Brazil. It’s doing well, that’s all I know. The others are not.

27. And in ASEAN. Singapore has done well. But the people seem unhappy. 15% of the
population are treated as second class citizens. They are poor. The other countries are so so.

28. Am I stupid? But really there is nowhere else I would like to be other than Malaysia. It’s not a perfect country. I don’t like some of the things I see or experience. But on balance there is more good in independent Malaysia than there are bad things.

29. So I will celebrate Merdeka days. I will fly the Jalur Gemilang and I will sing the National Anthem. I am proud I am a Malaysian, a citizen of an independent country. I will not step on the pictures of people who only know how to hate and have done nothing to make this country better. By doing what they did they have demonstrated that they and the people who lead them are unfit to rule this independent country. They only know hate. Hatred does not develop nations.

30. So I will shout “Merdeka” Malaysia for Merdeka means a lot to me.
