Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali has announced his decision to contest in the coming 14th general election.

Speaking to the media today, the one-time Pasir Mas MP said has not yet decided which seat in Kelantan he will contest.

“Let’s see whether it’s Pasir Mas or Rantau Panjang. I can choose either one, and there are those who have asked me to (consider one or the other).

“So, although I am a ‘divorcee’, there are many who are interested in me,” he said during a press conference at Perkasa’s headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

“I would prefer to run on political party’s ticket.

“But which party I cannot say, as there are parties that have put my name in.

“So I would like to see whether their agenda resonates with me,” he said, laughing.

The vocal Malay rights group chief has hopped from party to party through his political career, from Semangat 46, Umno to PAS, and contested as an Independent in the last general election.

GE 14: Are you one of the 1,100 people identified by the police as ‘troublemakers’?

22 March 2018




Police eye over 1,100 ‘troublemakers’ for GE14

By Thasha Jayamanogaran

KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 — Police have identified more than 1,100 individuals who are classified as potential “troublemakers” and more than 100 hotspots nationwide in the 14th general elections (GE14).

Among the attacks police will be paying attention to include cyber attacks that they say can contribute to public unrest during the elections.

“This includes allegations of phantom voters, rumours that we brought in foreigners to vote.

“We are trying our level best not to use force, but if we are left with no choice and if the public peace is in question then we have to consider,” Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said today at the Police Family Association (Perkep) annual meeting at the Royal Malaysia Police College in Cheras.

The police chief reminded voters to stay away from troublemakers and go out and vote in peace.

Mohamad Fuzi said the troublemakers were identified based on their previous records.

The IGP added police were still monitoring for more potential troublemakers, who can carry out “surprise last minute attacks”.

“We have their complete profile and we are watching their movement closely based on what we’ve been hearing and gathering.

“I hope they don’t see this as a threat, but we are doing what we need to do to ensure the GE14 goes on smoothly,” he said.

He also added that the hotspots identified to date nationwide was 149, including 33 in Sabah and Sarawak.

The Negri Sembilan MB: Price rises not due to GST but due to sabotage…

16 March 2018



Negri Sembilan MB: Prices of goods rise due to sabotage by traders, not GST

SEREMBAN, March 16 — The action by some traders who deliberately raise the prices of several items including basic necessities merely to get more profit is among the factors contributing to the rising prices of goods.

Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said the irresponsible traders then diverted the people’s attention by claiming that the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) had resulted in an increase in the prices of goods.

“There are many national issues that have been (deliberately) exaggerated…the prices of goods are said to be expensive due to GST. GST is a good tax system (and) implemented by more than 160 countries compared to the old tax system which was easily manipulated and has caused leakage. Through GST, there is no way you can run.

“That’s why the traders are angry…that’s why (they) deliberately sabotage the government. I don’t mind saying that the traders sabotage the government. I always take beef as an example, from RM20 increased to RM35. What’s the problem? Buffalo meat from RM28 increased to RM38.

“They say it’s all because of GST. Breeding buffaloes does not need a barn and they eat grass which is free. So what has GST got to do with it,” he said in a special interview with Bernama here.

The Negri Sembilan MB’s ‘joke’: “Storm into the coffee shop, overturn their tables”….

The ‘Joke”

A two minute video recorded Mohamad calling BN Youths to take action and counter “slanderous allegations” by the opposition media and to convince voters to support the ruling government.

“If there is a coffee shop disseminating slanderous statements against the government, you (BN Youth) storm into the coffee shop, overturn their tables… If you’re picked up by the police, I will bail you out,” he had reportedly said.


Apologise for ‘table-flipping speech’, ex-servicemen tell Negri MB

A GROUP of retired police and military servicemen want Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Mohamed Hassan to apologise over a speech they allege was inciting youth to “take physical action” against those who slander the government.

The National Patriots Association (Patriot) president Brig Gen (rtd) Mohd Arshad Raji said that if politicians continue to make inflamatory speeches, then the next election will not be free of violence.

“Regardless of whether there is a police report made against Hassan, the association urges the police to investigate the speech and to take whatever action permissible within the law,” he said in a statement today.
Arshad said the video showed how uncultured and uncivilised Hassan could be, of wanting to remain in power, not by peaceful, democratically acceptable means but by inciting and propagating violence against those who criticised the government.

“His conduct is unbecoming of a politician and a state leader.

“Such gangster-like conduct is totally wrong and unacceptable in our Malaysian culture.

“His speech wasn’t well received by the public at large and many who viewed the video had expressed scorn and disgust.”


Negri MB says ‘joking’ about violent reprisals against slander (VIDEO)


KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 — Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan reportedly said he was only joking when he called on Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth in Rembau to take “physical action” against any business premises seen slandering the government.

English daily theSun reported that Mohamad, who was speaking at the Majlis Pelancaran Briged Gempur Pemuda Umno Rembau on Sunday, said his words were taken out of context and was meant to “inspire confidence”.

“Those were just words to inspire confidence among the youth. It’s not like I want them to carry out these actions for real. I always joke around, you can ask all the reporters that cover my press conferences,” he reportedly said.

Ho Ching Road in Singapore: No, it was not a hostage-taking situation….

21 March 2018

Turns out it was for drug related issues. And not even a hostage situation. But this was reported in SG’s biggest media outlet as a hostage situation leh. Can we say they spread fake news, then?

No hostage situation on Ho Ching Road, Singapore police say

SINGAPORE, March 20 — There is no hostage situation in Singapore as reported by a local media here late this afternoon.

“This is not a hostage situation. No one was injured,” said Singapore Police Force (SPF) in its update on Facebook, referring to an incident at Ho Ching Road.

Updating further, SPF said about 1pm, the police and Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) were conducting a joint operation at a unit in Block 114 of Ho Ching Road.

A 50-year-old man refused to open the door and had locked himself in the house with his family members upon seeing the police and CNB officers.

The man had armed himself with a knife and threatened to harm the officers if they entered the unit.

About 5.50pm, officers from the Special Operations Command gained entry into the unit and arrested the man.

“The man’s elderly father and girlfriend were not harmed throughout the incident,” said the police, adding that substances believed to be controlled drugs and other drug paraphernalia were found in the unit.

The man was arrested for criminal intimidation and suspected drug-related offences.

Is it a crime to sing the GST song? Police to investigate Lim Guan Eng for indoctrination of children…

21 March 2018

Graver crimes than CM singing ignored: Kit Siang on son’s anti-GST warble

Published on  |  Modified on

Lim Kit Siang believes there is nothing seditious about his son and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng rendering an anti-GST song with children during the launch of free tuition classes.

“I have not seen the content (of the video). But as far as I know, I don’t think there’s anything seditious. Is there anything seditious?” he replied when quizzed on the matter.
Asked if he felt it was wrong for his son to do so, Kit Siang replied: “I think there can be an argument whether the CM should be singing.”

However, the DAP veteran accused the authorities of turning a blind eye to graver issues.

“I think there are greater crimes in the country and greater offences in the country which have been overlooked.

“I think that is the greatest crime, to overlook great crimes and to go for this sort of things. Please print that,” he said.

Kit Siang was speaking at a press conference at the Parliament lobby this afternoon.


Cops to take Guan Eng’s statement on GST sing-along

GEORGE TOWN: Police will record Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s statement over a goods and services tax (GST) parody sing-along at a free tuition class organised by the state government last weekend.

State police chief Commissioner A Thaiveegan said several police reports were lodged against Lim at the Patani Road police station yesterday.

“We will investigate under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998. We will record his statement as soon as possible,” he said today.

The law deals with the improper use of network facilities or network services, and carries a fine not exceeding RM50,000, a prison term not exceeding one year, or both.

Yesterday, a political party and two NGOs alleged that Lim had brought a compact disc to the tuition class and taught the children to sing the “ABC” song which allegedly contained lyrics insulting the Barisan Nasional (BN) government.

According to Bernama, Penang Front Party chairman Patrick Ooi, Penang Surplus Welfare Association president Sophian Mohd Zain and 1Malaysia People’s Welfare Association president Mohd Ibrahim A Siahoo lodged their police reports yesterday.

The video was played on Saturday morning when Lim was officiating the free tuition class.

During the session, Lim was seen singing and dancing to the tune of the song, watched by the students.

The free tuition comes under the state’s youth empowerment programme Penggerak Komuniti Muda Pulau Pinang (Peka) at the Mutiara Idaman 2 flats.


A-B-C-D-GST, now you know your DAP, says BN

March 17, 2018

A BN spokesman questions the Penang chief minister for dishing out political propaganda to children.


GEORGE TOWN: Two days after a DAP MP belted out a parody of the alphabet song in Parliament to mock the goods and services tax (GST), Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng today joined a sing-along of the song with residents of a flat here, drawing condemnation from Barisan Nasional (BN).

A video making rounds on Facebook shows the DAP secretary-general dancing to the tune of the song as it was being played on a large screen complete with lyrics.

“A-B-C-D-GST, prices rise for you and me, mesti makan maggi mee, semua kena GST, bayar untuk 1MDB,” goes the song.

The so-called “GST song” was recently sung in Dewan Rakyat by Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching, to drive home her point that Malaysians were burdened by the consumer tax.

But BN’s strategic communications deputy chief Eric See-To said Lim was guilty of indoctrinating children with political propaganda.

And now everyone, including Past Presidents, can have a go at The MCA: They asked for it…


MCA won seven parliamentary seats and retained 11 state seats which saw its critics derisively label it the 7-11 party, after the popular convenience store.

19 March 2018


MCA should have stayed out of cabinet, says Soi Lek

FORMER MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek said if the party had remained out of the cabinet after the 13th general election (GE13), the Chinese community would not regard the party with such disdain today.

“I think if MCA had insisted on staying out of the cabinet, we would have more room to manoeuvre,” Dr Chua told The Malaysian Insight recently.

The declaration proved prophetic, as the party performed worse than 2008, then under Ong Ka Ting’s leadership, which led the party’s leaders to resign from all cabinet and senior governmental positions.

MCA won seven parliamentary seats and retained 11 state seats which saw its critics derisively label it the 7-11 party, after the popular convenience store.
“If we had stayed out, then our political situation would be different today. Now the people blame MCA for everything because MCA is part of the government, this is the burden that we have to bear,” he said.

The former health minister said the recent attacks on former sugar tycoon Robert Kuok, who is highly regarded among the Chinese, proved that MCA could not champion the community even when it was in the cabinet.

“Senior MCA leaders did not dare to speak up for Kuok, even deputy president Wee Ka Siong, who attacked the DAP over the episode, did nothing,” Dr Chua said.

He also criticised MCA for its poor performance on critical current issues, saying the party neither showed courage nor political wisdom.

“This had led the community to disrespect MCA. If the party did not re-join the cabinet back then, then we would have more room to express our opinions on current issues,” the former Labis MP said.

Nazri: MCA not voice of Chinese, DAP, ‘Tokong’ Guan Eng are

Published on  |  Modified on

Umno supreme council member Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz has lashed out at MCA after its youth chief Chong Sin Woon said the former’s insults against tycoon Robert Kuok were tantamount to insulting all Chinese.

Nazri reiterated that Kuok did not represent the Chinese community and neither did the MCA.

“From my point of view, the party that won the most Chinese seats would be the voice of the Chinese. And that’s not MCA.

“Looking at the results of the 2013 general election, you can easily deduce the voice of the Chinese in Malaysia is DAP and the boss is ‘tokong’ (deity) Lim Guan Eng.

“That is why I work with him because he is the voice of the Chinese,” he told Malaysiakini.

Ex-president: Given a choice, I would erase my history in MCA

Adrian Wong     Published 3 Mar 2017, 8:05 pm


He was once MCA president and transport minister. He exposed corruption in the allocation for Chinese schools and the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal. And the list continues.

However, when Ong Tee Keat quit MCA in January, there were no news reports on this.

The matter only became public this week, when a Chinese daily got wind of his resignation and contacted him for confirmation.

In an interview with Malaysiakini, Ong provides the answers.

From the onset, it was evident that Ong no longer cared about MCA, and revealed that the feeling appeared to be mutual, since none had attempted to dissuade him from quitting.

He also does not want to be remembered in MCA.

“Nobody asked me to stay. First of all, I don’t need and don’t care about others asking me to stay.

“I don’t wish for them to remember me,” Ong retorted when asked how he would like to be remembered.

“If given a choice, I would rather erase the history of my presence in MCA, including all the things I had done. Right or wrong, let the people judge me,” he added.


The MCA: From 7-11 to 1+3D DaMaCai party to ¾ (tiga suku) party?

The MCA: From 7-11 to 1+3D DaMaCai party

After the last general election, MCA was mocked as the ‘7-11′ convenience store due to the party only wining seven parliament and 11 state seats.

If the Chinese continue to vote against it in the next polls, party deputy president Wee Ka Siong said MCA might become “1+3D DaMaCai” with only one parliament and three state seats.

Xavier Justo speaks out. Finally.



21 March 2018

Swiss review criminal complaint filed by figure in 1MDB case

Published on  |  Modified on

Swiss prosecutors are reviewing a criminal complaint filed against two former colleagues and an alleged accomplice by Xavier Justo, a former director of energy group PetroSaudi International Ltd and a key figure in the 1MDB affair.

Justo told Reuters he was trying to clear his name after being jailed in Thailand for blackmailing his former employer over its ties to the scandal-hit Malaysian state fund 1MDB, with which it ran an energy joint venture from 2009 to 2012.

The blackmail allegation arose from Justo’s demanding money from PetroSaudi and threatening to make public information he gleaned from his time at the company.

PetroSaudi, which was not itself a subject of the complaint, responded through its lawyers that Justo was merely trying to “deflect attention from his own wrongdoing”.

Documents that Justo leaked after he left PetroSaudi in 2011 triggered investigations in at least six countries into the alleged theft of assets from the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) fund.

The documents raised suspicions about how funds at the venture were used and prompted investigators to probe suspicions that money had been siphoned off from the joint venture.

A total of US$4.5 billion (RM17.65 billion) was misappropriated by high-level officials of 1MDB and their associates, according to civil lawsuits filed by the US Department of Justice.

Justo was freed from a Thai prison in an amnesty in 2016. Now he alleges that his confession came under pressure from PetroSaudi executives and their allies – including public relations officials and a fake London police detective – to cover up facts in the scandal.

The Swiss Office of the Attorney General confirmed it had received Justo’s criminal complaints and was reviewing them, declining to comment further.

PetroSaudi has denied wrongdoing in connection with the 1MDB venture and said it would cooperate fully with authorities.

Asked for comment on Justo’s allegations, PetroSaudi’s lawyers released a statement saying he was only repeating claims that contradicted his previous admissions.

“Our client did not take any steps to force him to make a false confession. He confessed to blackmail because the evidence against him was overwhelming and incontrovertible,” it said.

They questioned why Justo had gone public with his criminal complaint at a weekend news conference only months after approaching Swiss authorities.

“It seems to our client that the timing of this press conference suggests it has been carefully orchestrated to coincide with the forthcoming elections in Malaysia, when Prime Minister Razak will be seeking re-election,” they said.

Justo said Swiss authorities had asked him to delay filing charges to avoid interfering with their existing money-laundering investigation.

The complaints that he and his wife brought against PetroSaudi co-founder and chief executive Tarek Obaid, ex-PetroSaudi director Patrick Mahony and Briton Paul Finnigan include making threats, blackmail, extortion, endangering the lives of others, slanderous denunciation, misleading justice and money-laundering.

Justo breaks silence, files complaint against PetroSaudi ‘coercion’

Published on  |  Modified on


Former PetroSaudi International executive Xavier Justo has broken his silence and accused his former employer of manipulating the media to tarnish his reputation, the Swiss daily Le Temps reports.

At a press conference in Zurich yesterday, Justo announced that he had filed a complaint with the Swiss Attorney-General’s Office against two PetroSaudi executives, Tarek Obaid and Patrick Mahony, for threats, blackmail, extortion and coercion, among other grievances.

Justo also revealed emails that reportedly showed a Geneva-based “reputation management” company, KBSD, being engaged by PetroSaudi to allegedly disseminate the narrative that Justo was not a whistleblower, but an extortionist motivated by profit.

Le Temps alleged in its report that KBSD is infamous for practicing what it calls “black PR,” or the dissemination of negative information.

Justo claims that the narrative spread by KBSD was also intended to discredit Malaysian opposition media, in particular Sarawak Report – to whom he had handed over thousands of documents from PetroSaudi servers purportedly revealing the misappropriation of billions from 1MDB.

His complaint also reiterated the claim that PetroSaudi pushed him to incriminate himself while serving time in a Thai prison for blackmail, by using an English private detective masquerading as a Scotland Yard police officer to extract a confession from him.

At the press conference, Justo also recalled that Obaid had allegedly received funds from 1MDB for PetroSaudi’s RM1.4 billion buyout of the Sarawak bank UBG Bhd, owned by governor Abdul Taib Mahmud – said to be in exchange for Taib’s support for Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak…

1MDB had denied this allegation.

PetroSaudi International is a key element in the 1MDB scandal.

The US Department of Justice alleged that US$1 billion transferred between 2000 and 2010 from 1MDB to PetroSaudi for a joint venture project were misappropriated through Good Star Ltd – a company allegedly controlled by 1MDB-linked businessperson Jho Low.

Justo’s press conference comes on the heels on international pressure being piled on the embattled state investment arm.
Najib has denied any misconduct in the 1MDB scandal and has been clear of any wrongdoing by attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali.

1MDB has also denied that any of its funds were misappropriated.


Excerpts from:


SWISS BOMB! Justo Speaks Out At Last, As Swiss Prosecutors Adopt His Criminal Complaint Against PetroSaudi Directors

There was an afternoon of drama in Zurich this weekend when, following months of silence, the 1MDB whistleblower Xavier Justo stepped forward with his wife Laura to lay out their charges against those whom they claim conspired to entrap and imprison him in Thailand.

In a central location in the city they told a selected group of journalists the details of an astonishing plot to entrap and imprison him in Thailand, all in order to discredit the exposes over 1MDB

The couple had waited patiently before speaking out, they explained, in response to requests from the Swiss authorities to first pursue official investigations into the massive money laundering scandal and to make their preparations.

However, in a letter sent to their lawyer on 9th March, the Federal Prosecutor Alice de Chambrier, confirmed that a full investigation has now been officially launched into all thirteen of the couple’s criminal complaints made against three named individuals, Tarek Obaid, Patrick Mahony and Paul Finnigan.  It means that these three and their alleged accomplices can be arrested and interrogated by Swiss law enforcers, much in the same way that they orchestrated for Justo to be arrested in Bangkok.

The list of thirteen charges laid against the three named individuals and by implication their collaborators, which include the Prime Minister of Malaysia referred to in the complaint, is jaw dropping.  Moreover, it reflects everything that Sarawak Report has reported about the conspiracy to entrap Xavier Justo and get him imprisoned in Thailand, in order to attempt to discredit our exposure of the billion dollar 1MDB thefts.

After months of preparation, the Swiss federal prosecutors have now confirmed that they have adopted every single one of the charges that were originally levied by Justo, which means official law enforcers believe there are sufficient grounds to pursue accusations of:

Threat, blackmail, extortion, coercion, sequestration, endangering the life of others, slander, slanderous denunciation, misleading of the courts, bribery of foreign public officials, false misrepresentation of office, criminal organisation, money laundering [translated]

These charges are levied specifically against the Swiss based Saudi, Tarek Obaid and two British citizens, Patrick Mahony and Paul Finnigan.  However, the charge sheet cites they refer as well “against any other named persons whose acts may be criminalised, in particular because of the ..offences”.  

According to the statements made by Xavier Justo at his press conference today, those accomplices include the Swiss lawyer, hired by PetroSaudi to falsely misrepresent his case, Marc Henzelin, as well as several PR and ‘private investigators’ who assisted the PetroSaudi directors.

In particular Justo named a Swiss PR man named David Scholberg, who describes himself as CEO & Founder of KBSD Reputation & Cyber-Security, who he claims acted as an intermediary who paid lawyer Marc Henzelin CHF300,000 on PetroSaudi’s behalf in order to hide the connection.

Others named were another Swiss PR operator, Marc Comina, as well as the British company Protection Group International and its CEO Brian Lord.  Lord was also flown to Thailand during the period of the arrest and made statements to the press claiming that his ‘cyber intelligence’ company had proof that Sarawak Report had ‘tampered’ with data provided by Justo from PetroSaudi’s database.

Lawyer Who Was Conflicted Against His Alleged Client

Likewise, Justo has produced documents and emails which show that although the Swiss high profile lawyer Marc Henzelin, claimed to be representing him in Switzerland and had publicly denied that he was engaged by PetroSaudi, the lawyer was in fact knowingly being paid by that company through Scholberg to ‘represent’ Justo against his own interests in the criminal proceedings, which had been initiated against him by PetroSaudi.

Also named and heavily implicated during this press conference and in the narrative and evidence supporting the charges was the Malaysian Prime Minister, quoted by Mahony as being the man behind their actions – the man who needed to be got off the hook.

Fake news about the Selangor water situation?

19 March 2018


Ministry should stop falsehoods about S’gor water

Published on  |  Modified on

LETTER | Selangor’s Water Reserve Margin Above 5%, Increasing to 11%

The secretary-general (KSU) of Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (Kettha), Zaini Ujang, has been on a political crusade against the Selangor government for the past week.

Not only has his behaviour been highly unprofessional for a senior member of the civil service, he has falsely presented the facts about Selangor’s water situation.

Over the last week, Zaini has issued several statements and social media postings that have backed up the attacks on Selangor’s water from Umno/BN that began just days before scheduled repairs on the Sungai Selangor Phase 3 (SSP3) Water Treatment Plant.

False Figures from Ministry

The most misleading claim put forward by Zaini is that Selangor’s water reserve margin is at 0%.

He has based this false claim on a table in the Malaysian Water Industry Guide (MWIG) 2017. However, the photo of the table he posted on Twitter had the footnote cropped.

Had he read the footnote, or had he chosen not to conceal it from the public, he would have seen that it says that Selangor’s actual reserve margin was 2.2% and 4.4% for 2015 and 2016, respectively, not 0% as he claimed. (A copy of the full page is attached to this release; p. 21 MWIG 2017).

Kedah was also listed with a 0% reserve in the MWIG 2017, with no redeeming footnote. Why is there no fuss from Kettha about Kedah? Why is there only an emotional focus on Selangor, which UMNO/BN has been trying to smear ahead of the General Election?

In his press conference last week, Zaini deepened his allegation by claiming that Selangor’s reserve margin now is 0%. This is either sloppiness or a deception of the highest order.

His own Minister Maximus Ongkili on Tuesday reported to Parliament that Selangor’s margin is currently at 3%, not 0% according to Zaini. This can be read by all in the official Parliamentary Hansard.

Lately, Selangor has been the victim of an epidemic of faulty figures from BN, starting with Rahman Dahlan and Eric See-To, now the latest comes from the top leadership of Kettha.

The Truth about Selangor’s Water Situation

For their information, Selangor’s water reserve margin at the beginning of 2018 was 3.5%, not 0%.

The reserve margin in March 2018 is currently 5.4%, not 0%. This is because Selangor spent RM 177.5 million to bring the Semenyih 2 Water Treatment Plant online last month. Our dams are 100% full across the state. This is why there have been no water shortages this year.

Here’s a teaser. By the end of 2018, our reserve margin is expected to be 9.6% and it will rise to 11% by 2019. That’s 11%, not 0%. Why the big jump?

The completion of part one of the Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant in June 2018 and the Labohan Dagang Water Treatment Plant in January 2019, will raise Selangor’s water reserve margin to 11% in 2019.

Selangor Water Reserves:

Rather than playing politics with the peoples’ water, Kettha should be supporting Selangor’s efforts. It is unbecoming for a senior civil servant to take such a partisan line in his official duties. It affects his responsibility to discharge his duties fairly and impartially to all states in the Federation.

I have been a victim of UMN/BN “fake news” for the last four decades – UMNO leaders accuse me of being anti-Malay while MCA leaders accuse me of being anti-Chinese and had sold out the rights of the Chinese to the Malays


I have been a victim of UMN/BN “fake news” for the last four decades – UMNO leaders accuse me of being anti-Malay while MCA leaders accuse me of being anti-Chinese and had sold out the rights of the Chinese to the Malays

“Fake News” is the latest fashion of the day. The present preoccupation with fake news was started by Donald Trump, the President of United States, and it has been taken up with gusto by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, not so much to combat fake news, but to provide the circumstances and wherewithal to concoct and peddle fake news with immunity and impunity while suppressing truth and embarrassing news emanating from the Opposition and civil society.

What Najib, just like Trump, is doing is to launch a “fake anti-fake news” campaign!

I have myself been a victim of UMNO/BN “fake news” for the last four decades – UMNO leaders accused me of being anti-Malay and anti-Islam while MCA leaders accuse me of being anti-Chinese and sold out the rights of the Chinese to the Malays!

How a person can be both anti-Malay and anti-Chinese I do not know.

DAP and I have also been accused of wanting to do away with Islam as the official religion and bring about a Christian Malaysia.

How is this possible when I am not even a Christian beggars belief.

DAP’s position on Islam as the official religion is clear and unequivocal, as we have many a time expressed full support for the basic constitutional provisions in the country.

It has always been my life-long political creed that no responsible political movement in Malaysia can be against any race or religion, that we must not be anti-Malay, anti-Chinese or anti-Indian, anti-Kadazan or anti-Iban, but must be pro-Malaysian and support the basic rights and interests of all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion, region or even politics.

UMNO leaders are trying to create fear among the Malays, warning the Malays of the “Chinese peril” and that the Malays would lose all their rights if UMNO is defeated in the forthcoming general election.

Is this true? Will the Malay lose all their rights if UMNO is defeated in the 14GE to be held within 60 days?

National Laureate, Pak Samad, can never understand how Malays will perish if UMNO loses in elections.

No UMNO leader had been able to answer the two questions posed by the National Laureate Pak Samad to expose such fake news and political lies, viz:

*How are Malays under threat? How can religion (Islam) and Malays be threatened when those in power have been Malay for six decades?

*What have they (Malay leaders) been doing in six decades (if Malays can be under threat)?”

The fears that UMNO leaders have been generating to keep themselves in power – that if UMNO is defeated in a general election, Malays will lose political power and become strangers in their own land – is a great double lie, for the Malays will not lose political power if UMNO is evicted from Putrajaya.

Three demographic factors, and even more important, a critical electoral factor, will prove that UMNO leaders were spouting lies and falsehoods when they try to panic Malays into thinking that without UMNO, Malays will perish.

The incontrovertible fact is that Malays will not lose political power whatever happens to Najib or to UMNO in the next general election.

In 1957, Malaya’s population comprised 49.8% Malays, 37.2% Chinese, 11.1% Indians and 2% Other.s

In 1970 Malaysia’s population comprised 44.32% Malays, 34.34% Chinese, 8.99% Indians, 11.89% non-Malay Bumiputeras, 0.67% others.

In 2010, the percentage of Malays in the Malaysian population increased to 55.07%, Chinese reduced to 24.34%, Indians dropped to 7.35%, non-Malay Bumiputeras maintained at 11.94% and 1.3% others.

The Malaysian Chief Statistician has predicted that the Chinese percentage of the population would shrink to 19.6% in 2030 and 18.9% in 2035.

Why then are the UMNO leaders continue to beat the drum of the “Chinese peril” in Malaysia?

During the 13th general election, 52.63% of the voters were Malays, 29.68% Chinese, 7.31% Indians, 8.96% non-Malay Bumiputeras and 1.43% others.

Out of the 165 Parliamentary seats in Peninsular Malaysia, 114 are Malay majority seats representing some 70%, 22 Chinese majority seats (13%) and 29 mixed seats. There is not a single Indian majority seat.

These triple demographic factors, which will be a continuing trend in the coming years, establish the overwhelming Malay predominance in the Malaysian political scene and why there is no way the Malays can lose political power if UMNO is defeated in a general election!

But apart from these three demographic factors, there is the critical democratic factor which will ensure that the Malays will not lose their rights and become strangers in their own land as warned by UMNO leaders.

We in Pakatan Harapan wants to win not just the 14th General Election, but also future general elections – the 15th, 16th and others thereafter.

A Pakatan Harapan Federal Government which wants its government mandate to be renewed in subsequent General Elections must be able prove in the next five years before the 15GE that a Pakatran Harapan Government in Putrajaya is better than UMNO/BN government for all Malaysians, whether Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans, Ibans or Orang Asli or be voted out of Putrajaya in the 15th General Election in five years’ time.

The three demographic factors together with this critical electoral factor are the surest guarantee that the UMNO threat that Malays will perish if UMNO is defeated is an empty one, with no basis or truth whatsoever.
