Lim Guan Eng is the Finance Minister…

Anwar: Hishamuddin Rais is a storyteller…

Commenting on writings by activist Hishamuddin Rais, who had claimed that Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had urged Dr Mahathir not to appoint Lim Guan Eng as finance minister and appoint PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli instead, Anwar said it was Hishamuddin’s personal views.

“That’s his own views, as he is a storyteller. Sometimes in politics, in writing, we have those who oppose, those who attack and bootlickers.

“Don’t be someone who attacks without facts, and don’t be a lackey. To me, we should give room to each interpret one’s views, there’s no need to fly into a temper so quickly,” he said.

Charge Guan Eng for sedition over Mandarin use, say protesters

June 29, 2018

Former director-general of Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka, Awang Sariyan, accuses the finance minister of challenging the fundamental tenets of nationhood.

PUTRAJAYA: Former director-general of Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka, Awang Sariyan, today called for Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng to be charged for sedition for issuing an official ministry statement in Mandarin recently.

Awang said Lim had challenged the fundamental tenets underpinning the formation of the nation.

“The position of Bahasa Melayu as the official national language is not something new. As the foundation of the social contract between the races, it should not be questioned.

“The new government should affirm this rather than make a change that deviated from the constitution.

Among those present at the protest, attended by about 20 people, were former Dewan Rakyat speaker Abu Zahar Ujang, former inspector-general of police Hanif Omar, former managing director of Malaysia Airlines Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman and Malay Consultative Council secretary-general Hasan Mad.

Lim was accused of undermining the national language after he issued a ministerial statement written only in Mandarin.

He has since said he accepted the criticisms and would in future issue official statements in Malay with translations in other languages where necessary.

..

 

Now a small group is holding a “peaceful demonstration” against the issuing of official statements in non-Malay. It’s the Lingua Franca and the national language, they say.

Earlier this week, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng defended his translations of official statements into languages other than Bahasa Melayu – particularly Chinese.

    Has anyone taken a sweeping high definition video of the demonstrators? In time we shall have realtime facial recognition and tracking these people and associates can reveal who the dalang is.
    I see they are no longer wearing red shirts. Any idea what happened to them?
