Utusan calls Chinese ungrateful, again
October 27, 2013
Umno mouthpiece Utusan Malaysia has again played the race card by calling the Chinese in Malaysia ungrateful despite being given citizenship here, the privileges in the economic sector and the leeway to develop Chinese schools.
This time the paper justified its argument by drawing heavily on a book published by Ye Lin-Shing from China, The Chinese Dilemma, in 2003.
“Ye-Lin is a businessman in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, Britain and United States. His book captures his experience involving the Chinese in these countries. He criticised many parties including the Malaysian Chinese,” said Awang Selamat, the pseudonym for its collective editorial team, in the weekend edition, Mingguan Malaysia.
“He had concluded that the Chinese here were lucky compared to other countries, yet were still ungrateful. He had also stressed how generous the Malays were in the social contract prior to independence in allowing the Chinese citizenship.
“Yet when Utusan Malaysia published a front page article title ‘Apa Lagi Cina Mahu?’ two days after the 13th general elections, some DAP and Chinese non-governmental organisations were upset even though it was a realistic and rational question.
“Despite controlling the country’s economy, the development of Chinese schools and the implementation of government policies which allows the Chinese to continue to prosper, the Chinese still wants to topple Malay political leadership from power.”
Awang Selamat said even Ye Lin admitted that the Chinese in Malaysia were arrogant, insulting and unfair to the Malays.
“The Chinese are now colonising the Malays but the Malays remain patient and polite as these are their traits,” he said.
“I pity the Malays for not coming to their senses. Even though they have given in to the Chinese, they continue to be hurt and betrayed.” – October 27, 2013.
Since the results were announced, the Malay broadsheet and Umno’s right-wing elements have constantly attempted to frame the May 5 ballot at a Chinese-vs-Malay contest.
Polls data, however, showed a significant swing in Malay votes towards Pakatan Rakyat (PR), especially among the middle class in urban areas, with many analysts agreeing that the Election 2013 results pointed more towards an urban-rural and class divide, instead of a communal rift.
Utusan has, however, continued with its push to influence the post-May 5 polls discourse with anti-Chinese sentiments, labelling the community as “deserters” and “ungrateful” for voting against a government that has done its best to serve the community.
“In the context of Malaysian politics, Awang would like to (say) that any Chinese who are emotional and rakus (ravenous) will hurt their own race despite having control of the economy,” the columnist wrote today.
Emotional and greedy Chinese will hurt own race, says Utusan
KUALA LUMPUR, June 9 — Chinese voters will hurt their own race if they continue to be “emotional and greedy”, Utusan Malaysia warned today, as it continues with its attack against the community more than a month after the divisive May 5 general election.
Under the headline “Sedarlah Cina (Wake up Chinese)”, Awang Selamat, which is the nom de plume representing the collective voice of the paper’s editors, appeared to suggest that the majority of the Chinese community are overly demanding and ungrateful for voting against a government that has done much to serve them.
The column also described the majority of Chinese as racist because they were purportedly influenced by the DAP to hate other races despite having been treated favourably in Malaysia and quoting academic Dr Teo Kok Seong as saying Malaysian Chinese, especially the educationist group Dong Zong, should instead be grateful as no other country would have allowed the community to preserve its identity and “live as ‘Chinese’”.
“Amid the thick racist sentiment of the majority of the Chinese, as a result of the political game played by the most racist party, the DAP, there are voices from the more open and rational Chinese,” the columnist wrote, referring to Teo, a researcher with University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).
“He has openly reminded the Chinese, especially the Chinese educationist group, Dong Zong, that there are no other countries in the world that would have allowed this race to live as ‘Chinese’, except for Malaysia,” the writer added.
The column further noted that Teo’s supposed advice came at the right time. Although the writer gave no explanation, it is believed that he was referring to Election 2013 where the majority of the Chinese were perceived to have voted against the ruling coalition.
Utusan Malaysia said the research was carried out over a period of six months, but did not state when it was conducted or when the survey results were released.
Utusan claims Malay grads face discrimination, cites unnamed study
KUALA LUMPUR, June 5 ― Malay graduates have been discriminated against by firms owned by the local Chinese and foreigners, Utusan Malaysia reported today in an apparent continuation of the Umno-owned daily’s attack on the community following last month’s general election.
The report was featured on Utusan Malaysia’s front-page with the headlines “Diskriminasi syarikat Cina berdasarkan kajian universiti awam. Graduan Melayu disisih” (Discrimination of Chinese companies based on public university’s research. Malay graduates marginalised), but the Malay-language paper did not name the public university nor the researcher that it said had carried out the study.
Utusan Malaysia said the research showed that the race factor was more important than education qualification in the hiring process, pointing to the higher callback rate for Chinese versus Malay graduates.
“Out of over 3,000 resumes that were sent to the companies involved, the Malays only have a 4.2 per cent chance of being called to attend an interview.
“The Chinese have a 22.1 per cent chance even though they have the same qualification and graduated from the same universities as the Malays,” Utusan Malaysia quoted the research paper as saying, adding that the study involved firms from the accounting, finance and engineering industry.
Utusan Malaysia also said the research involved graduates from private and public institutions of higher learning in the country, with employers favouring those from Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).
It quoted the research as saying that employers tended to prefer graduates from private universities, with only graduates from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) including those from the Malay community being the preferred choice in the accounting sector.
“Malay graduates who can write, speak and read in the Chinese language are also more likely to be called to attend interviews,” the paper said.
Awang Selamat ― the nom-de-plume representing Utusan Malaysia’s collective editorial voice ― also commented today on the research, repeating that the findings showed that racial discrimination towards Malay graduates exist in firms owned by non-Malays and foreigners.
“In a modern world which should be based on the capability of the work force, there is still racial discrimination in the job sector,” it said.
Awang said the study also show that a job applicant’s mastery of Mandarin was an advantage in non-Malay firms.
“Advertisements that lay down that requirement are actually easily seen in newspapers. This to Awang is clearly from the start a ‘rejection’ of candidates that have not mastered the Mandarin language, which is not the country’s national language,” it said.
The article is a continuation of Zaini’s call for Malays to launch an economic jihad, or a holy war, to recapture the economy from the hands of the Chinese.
Despite claims to the contrary, Malaysians of Chinese descent are the real beneficiaries of the New Economic Policy or NEP, says Umno-owned Malay language daily Utusan Malaysia.
“The Chinese especially believe that the policy implemented after the May 13 (1969) incident made them second class, or worse, third class citizens,” says Utusan‘s assistant chief editor Zaini Hassan (left) in his weekly column Cuit.
“As evidence shows, it is actually directly the opposite… Under the NEP regime, the non-indigenous moved further forward economically, compared with what happened to the bumiputeras,”, Zaini says, quoting a book published in the United Kingdom, “Growth and Ethnic Imbalance”.
He argues that the book, by a trio of economists who were the original architects of the NEP – Just Faaland, Jack Parkinson and Rais Saniman – should be required reading for all Malays to truly understand their plight in their own homeland.
Zaini in his column then goes on to ask how the Chinese could claim to have been negatively affected by the NEP if:
- Are they like the whites who are sidelined in Zimbabwe, or the blacks who were once similarly treated in South Africa;
- Are the Chinese starving because of the NEP, no longer have education in their mother tongue or are all businesses controlled by Malays?;
- Have they been denied the right to speak their mother tongue, like in Indonesia, Thailand or the United States?;
- Are they denied the right to drive luxury cars or live in upscale neighbourhoods such as Mont’ Kiara and Bukit Damansara?; and
- Are they not in the top 10 billionaires spots?
Zaini also quoted an unnamed “empirical” study that shows it is the Malays who are being victimised in the job market by “Chinese-controlled companies”.
He said the study showed that Chinese firms will pay a Chinese employee up to almost 30 percent more than a Malay with the same qualifications and abilities.
“It is tragic that their wealth, which is the result of NEP, is used to punish another race that introduced it (the NEP).”
Perak Mufti calls non-Malays bigots, claims Anwar used to colonise Malays
KUALA LUMPUR, May 14 — Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria has accused non-Malays of racial bigotry and using Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to conquer Malays.
Following a narrative championed by Umno’s right-wing, he told the party’s Utusan Malaysia newspaper that non-Malays were angry that their plans to colonise “us” did not materialise.
Harussani did not name which race he was referring to, but was repeatedly quoted using the word “they” in reference to his claims of plans to conquer the Malays.
“This is not just politics but racial bigotry…they follow him (Anwar) to protest so that they can colonise us and destroy the Constitution but their plans failed and they are angry.
“They did not bother voting for Malays while we help them defeat the Malays. But still they lost and now they say the elections are not right,” he told Utusan Malaysia today.
Umno-owned daily Utusan Malaysia and Umno-linked daily Berita Harian have taken aim at the “black rallies” organised by Pakatan Rakyat to protest alleged fraud in the recently concluded general election, painting them as Chinese-dominated and violent.
Utusan Malaysia’s front page read: ‘Young Chinese monopolises illegal rallies’ followed by several photographs of Chinese participants in such protests on page 6 under the title ‘DAP continues to trigger provocation’.
It claimed that “tens of thousands of young Chinese” had flooded the first rally in Kelana Jaya last Wednesday and “about 70 percent of the crowd was Chinese” during the second rally in Batu Kawan last Saturday.
“These Chinese youths are expected to continue giving undivided support to the series of rallies that will be held nationwide,” its report read.
Meanwhile, Berita Harian said the series of black rallies, the third of which drew about 30,000 in Ipoh yesterday, was a continuation of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s penchant for street demonstrations.
In its page 12 report, it splashed several photographs of the Bersih 3.0 protest last year of smashed police cars, overturned police motorcycles and a protester lifting police barricades with the title ‘Anwar mastermind of illegal rallies’.
“Who does not know Anwar Ibrahim, from when he held the highest position in government until his fall from grace when arrested and imprisoned, he continues to be the mastermind of street demonstrations in this country,” it said.
