The current call to boycott non bumiputera products…

In one social media post, bumiputera consumers were asked to boycott on one day a week, a supermarket chain which did not promote bumiputera products and WHICH did not reduce the price of the non-bumiputera produced products.

A number of NGOs also called for a boycott of halal products made by non-Muslims.

There is “nothing positive” about PAS defending a campaign urging Muslims to prioritise the purchase Muslim-made products, DAP lawmaker Ramkarpal Singh has said.

The Bukit Gelugor MP said as a lawyer, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan should know the “serious social ramifications” of such a campaign for the country’s multicultural values.

He was referring to Takiyuddin, who today argued that the campaign, which began on social media, was “inclusive and competitive”.

“I cannot see anything positive in such a move as urged by Takiyuddin.

“Of all people, Takiyuddin, being legally trained, ought to understand the serious social ramifications of such a campaign which can lead to racial polarisation and a divide amongst races in this country,” Ramkarpal said in a statement today.

He said encouraging such a move goes against the spirit of the Federal Constitution which includes one’s right to livelihood.

Ramkarpal, who is also DAP legal bureau chairperson, added that Malaysia has long enjoyed the benefits of importing and exporting goods from and to non-Muslim countries.

He cited the export of Malaysia’s palm oil to India as an example.

PAS should instead encourage Muslim businesses to compete with other Muslim and non-Muslim businesses, he said.

This would equip Muslim businesses with the necessary skills to compete locally and internationally, and create more job opportunities.

He added: “Takiyuddin may claim to have been referring to local industries, but the same logic applies – restricting businesses according to race will have a negative impact on such businesses, as this would result in a lack of competitiveness as they cater only for a restricted market.”

KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA has condemned irresponsible groups calling for a campaign to boycott non-Muslim products through social media.

Its president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said the move was against national interests and an act of economic sabotage.

He said it was more important that all Malaysians support “Brand Malaysia”, adding that Malaysian products should be given priority.

Dr Wee said Malaysian companies had workers of all races and religions.

“Let’s not hurt each other or hurt ourselves because no rational businessmen would choose their customers based on race and religion, ” he said in a statement Monday (Sept 2).

Dr Wee described the action of the groups as “bizarre” and “irrational”.

He said the timing of the move was bad as Malaysians had just celebrated the National Day.

“What kind of message are we sending out to the world.

“Most local products are already halal compliance as manufacturers want to reach out to all Malaysians, ” he added.

PETALING JAYA: Opposition leader Ismail Sabri has denied Umno-PAS involvement in a campaign on social media to boycott non-Bumiputera products, and he rejected an allegation by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng of the two parties being behind the movement.

Ismail said even if there was a campaign by a private organisation, it would be for Muslims to buy halal products from Muslim traders, based on their obligation to only consume or use products that were halal (ritually clean).

“Muslims are aware of this halal product (issue) after too many instances of non-Muslim products being found to use Islamic names to deceive consumers,” said Ismail, who is a vice-president of Umno.

Ismail’s statement contained hashtags calling on the people to go against the DAP, a member of the current coalition government.

Ismail claimed that there were non-Bumiputera entrepreneurs who had betrayed consumers by ignoring halal requirements.
.

But Ismail described Lim’s statement as malicious and irresponsible in accusing the Malays or Bumiputeras, in particular Umno and PAS of involvement in the campaign.

Lim should respect the decision made by consumers who are aware of their rights. If the campaign was indeed being held, it would open new ventures for Muslims and indirectly boost their economy.

On Friday, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad was reported to have called for the campaign to be halted because it was ineffective and would only provoke anger.

All businesses, Bumi and non-Bumi, must earn their own upkeep

 

I am glad our prime minister, as a Malay and Muslim, has spoken against the boycott.

The boycott is unwise and may cause anger and further division among citizens in the country.

However, when Lim Guan Eng, the finance minister, echoed the PM’s call to rescind the boycott, the reaction was somewhat different. Now, the argument is to buy “Muslim-made first”, not so much to boycott non-Bumiputera-made products.

Whether it is to boycott non-Bumiputera-made products or buy Muslim-made first, I think the message is the same. There are bitterness and unhappiness, either real or orchestrated, among the people of different races and religions in the country.

Sometimes, in a situation like this, I think it is better for the non-Bumiputeras not to react or to boycott Bumiputera-made products or services. It is also better for non-Muslim leaders not to react. Whatever said, it is likely to add more fuel to fire. It is better for ministers and leaders from within the Muslim community to come to their senses and to dispense advice accordingly.

A boycott may be effective temporarily. Ultimately, I believe business is competition and value for money. Consumers will buy or not buy based on their own economic interests.

Unless the animosity is genuine and deep-rooted, I don’t think the boycott will last. It does not make sense to buy from an alternative source if pricing and quality are inferior. All businesses, Bumiputera and non-Bumiputera, must earn their own upkeep.

All businesses, Bumi and non-Bumi, must earn their own upkeep

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has urged Umno and PAS to condemn a boycott against non-bumiputera businesses.

This is after Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad urged those responsible to cease their movement to boycott non-bumiputera products, as it would only cause anger.

“If PAS and Umno are not against both non-Muslims and non-Malays, both parties should adopt a similar stand condemning such boycotts of non-bumi products,” the finance minister said in a statement today.

A movement which began on social media is urging the bumiputera to boycott products produced by non-bumiputera.

In one social media post, bumiputera consumers were asked to boycott on one day a week, a supermarket chain which did not promote bumiputera products and which did not reduce the price of the non-bumiputera produced products.

A number of NGOs also called for a boycott of halal products made by non-Muslims.

Lim said those “racists and religious extremists” should take heed of Mahathir’s advice to cease the boycott.

“This boycott of non-bumi products has reached disturbing levels until the prime minister is compelled to comment upon it.

“If this is the case, then by extension, foreign products, especially handphones, should also be boycotted,” he said.

Lim added that such boycotts would be counter-productive, not just because it harms national unity, but could also cause consumers to “lose out by boycotting products which are superior in price and quality.”

He also urged Malaysians to take heed of retired national shuttler Lee Chong Wei’s message about not letting petty issues divide Malaysians.

Non-bumi product boycott not effective, will only provoke anger, says Mahathir

Kow Gah Chie & Lu Wei Hoong | Published: | Modified:

Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has urged those responsible to cease their movement to boycott non-bumiputera products.

This is because he felt such a movement would not help improve any situation but only create anger in others.

“Maybe there is some shallow-minded people who do such things. But it is not going to work.

“A boycott is not an effective weapon. It is useless to do so (and will) just cause the anger of others,” he told a press conference after chairing Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting today.

“So don’t boycott anyone’s products be it bumiputera or the non-bumiputera,” he added.

He was asked about a movement which began on social media urging the bumiputera to boycott products produced by non-bumiputera.

In one social media post, bumiputera consumers were asked to boycott on one day a week, a supermarket chain which did not promote bumiputera products and WHICH did not reduce the price of the non-bumiputera produced products.

A number of NGOs also called for a boycott of halal products made by non-Muslims.

On another matter, Mahathir said the Harapan did not discuss Selangor’s unilateral conversion bill at today’s meeting.

.
Pasaraya2 dah mula memainkan peranan dengan tidak meletakkan produk2 keluaran bumiputera di rak display mereka dan menurunkan harga produk keluaran non-bumi hingga 5 hengget bagi minyak masak cap buruh, seri murni dan beberapa lagi. Kesedaran mereka bahawa kita orang2 melayu telah bersatu memboikot produk mereka lalu menurunkan harga seminima mungkin. Tiada lagi minyak saji kelihatan diatas rak. Mee segera Saji juga tiada. Ayuh teruskan memboikot 👍👍👍.
