Chamil Wariya says YB J bears no resemblance to Kok

Chamil Wariya says:

"YB Teresa can be vocal at times and disliked by some for her style of politics, but generally she is a responsible politician and responsive to her constituents. YB J is not.

"YB J is a manifestation of politicians who politicise race issues and have no respect for the rights of all communities."

Chamil said his goal in writing the story was to call for moderation in political views, and to remind politicians not to incite communal feelings.

    It's about time now somebody start blowing up any YB (govt. or opposition) because they're responsible for racial tension.

  3. Anonymous8:10 pm

    Hmmmm, it maybe so, but the ending doesn't leave any feel good feeling. It's says better to kill off the person than let the person fan racial tension.If this was a moral story, shouldn't it be more on regret and forgiving. Secondly, why use YB J, a chinese as an example when no specific race need to be mentioned at all(fiction) .
    I am giving feedback as a reader. This book is not suitable as a "moral" reading book.Definitely not suitable for children, who without parental guidance may deemed it as acceptable to kill someone off.
    Teresa should drop the suit on Chamil as he has denied it has any resemblance to Teresa. He can't apologise if he did nothing wrong in the first place.

  4. oh yes..

    SABRI ZAIN also were not given the same platform to defend himself against UMI HAFILDA. How lucky this Chamil Wariya is...can have special interview to defend himself.

    I wish that, as Muslims we must respond with compassion, love, humility and better understanding. Yet as I read comments on various posts in this blog,I find that comments that are filled with so much hatred, name-calling, rudeness, and arrogance are posted by Muslims.

    How can Muslims expected love, compassion and forgiveness from the Almighty God when we ourselves can't show love and respect for others?

    Call me what you want - Keling,ular, babi bodoh, whatever. I feel sorry for those who prefer rudeness and name-calling over love and compassion. I pray that you be blessed with more peace, love, joy and compassion.

  14. The attempt at rationalisation by Chamil Wariya is not convincing as his cerpen was published in the very paper which persists in demonising
    YB Teresa.There was no apology for publishing as facts what the Police subsequently found to be not true!
    As for the ending of the cerpen ...
    that YB J was shot by a chinese youth
    who later killed himself.What can be more ridiculous!Chinese do not run amok, nor do they go around killing themselves for political reasons!Before Chamil Wariya can be
    a publish novelist he has a lot more to learn...and time is not on his side!

    i wish he would admit it snipping her real life tale for the cerpen to make it realistic. and the assassination is predictable for "lawless" country, raging extremist and ignorant politician. there's plenty of examples in lincoln, mlk to plagiarize, and that chamil could have admitted it instead being tikus. the column needs to fill up, and the cerpen is nice read and serves good for self-reflection and pondering what's becoming of malaysia aka negara cha. and it's freedom of speech too.

    The production of a literary piece is like manufacturing a product. You need various materials to materialize that particular product. And the writer is a workman who needs material to forge his piece (product) . The materials we are talking about can be in the form of ideology, language and the socio-political condition of the society the workman lives in.

    Moreover, we have to bear in mind that an artist creates a world of his piece out of nothing (purely his imagination) is just a myth.

    So, I think it is a downright lie to say that YB J bears no resemblance at all to YB Kok.

    PS. My analysis sounds so Marxist because I use Pierre Macherey's literary production theory.

  18. Anonymous11:34 pm

    Looks like the 100 mil lawsuit is very effective. The writer finally found his voice to explain his very 'unoriginal' story. He wud have been more believable if he had come out to defend his story immediately after the uproar. He need to realise that if anything untoward happened to Teresa, the public that saw thro his story will hold him responsible.

    Chamil should thank his lucky stars or is the utu-SUN that the majority who read his cerpen is taking it positively and rationally not to react like his character did or else a racist from the other side of the fence may do a copycat on the author as his 'ahmad' did. But that's fiction right? so dear Chamil has no fear after all. Bet if he did write a cerpin depicting a chosen one of a racist ruling party, throw in a subplot of submarine deals and illicit affairs, it would be interesting to C4 all of us if there will be rational minds in that party who would applaud his literary skill or do an 'ahmad' on him :)

    As a politician Kok realises the risk she has to take in this multi-racial country. As a citizen, she has the right like anyone of us to seek justice when irresponsible people attack her. Why don't people at Utusan as well as Chamil look themselves in the mirror and seek the truth in their own souls about their demeaning purpose towards another human being. I hope God can bless them and wait for them in the judgement day.

    Rocky, haven't you done enough in making a big issue out of this Utusan thingy ? Why are you so hung up on this suing stuff ? You have made your point earlier, but you really shouldn't carry on and on about it, it's their right to sue or not to sue, and it's their right to defend or not to defend, they did not abuse those rights. As for your blog, you should stop blogging on issues, which intentionally or unintentionally, have tendencies to provoke racist remarks among all races.


  26. so much about fighting for freedom of speech and expression by the opposition in the likes of anwar ibrahim, lim kit siang, and the other so-called liberals..when got hit on own nose, then you feel how bad it is!

    on chamil's short story, is only "ciput'! (a new malay term among the generasi baru meaning small or small matter)

    in the u.s., where they also advocate freedom of expression, hollywood makes tons of fiction movies on the assassination attempts on the u.s. presidents.

    nobody got sued. instead more and more movies are churn out by hollywood on the assassination attempts on their presidents.

    so far only abraham lincoln and john kennedy, were the only ones assassinated in the over 200 years history of this so-called great democracy on earth where guns rule the day...

    even then lincoln was killed before hollywood ever existed. and kennedy, no one knows until today who really planned his assassination.

    this short fiction only a 'ciput' to the americans!

    they are laughing at those liberals especially that cock!

    And even if YB J had been inspired by YB Teresa (which is not the case, if you do a little critical appreciation on the short fiction), I would have thought YB Teresa would be flattered!

    Instead, she sued the writer for RM100 million!

    And that has made YB Teresa a little bit more like YB J, don't you think? Worse, even!

    Hiya bro Rocky:

    Perhaps TK would have felt flattered with the marked semblance (contrary to whatever CW said, the overall gist of his cerpen points to facets of the Seputeh MPs situation so he is treading on thin ice, but thats only my opinion) had it not been THAT ending.

    BTW, there was a letter to the editor sometime in Utusan purportedly from a Non Malay reader writing in most eloquent Bahasa Melayu and giving his or her two cents on - if I remember correctly - why the non malays should be thankfull of the chance and opportunities given by way of the citizenship all those years ago.

    I might be wrong, and stand to be corrected in this.

    Similarly in CW cerpen, the suicide shooter is someone from J's own racial grouping who wants her dead so as to stop racial strife or whatever.

    You can draw your own conclusion as I'm just making a point here.

    God bless.


  42. siapa makan cili dia terasa pedasnya.

    anyway, that law suit is a lost call, as there is no name be mention. if teresa win this case, there will be no freedom of speech as been champion by PKR. because their lawyer who make up most of the party will overturn each and every stone to make sure everything we wrote get sued.

    now i'm worried if my comment in the blog will be sued by her and co.

  43. Anonymous10:03 am

    I can't understand why people like pisang tergoreng wrote all the things they wrote. To me, Rocky is merely REPORTING here. So that we know. While at that, I'll say I come to this blog a lot to read things before any other media publish it because Rocky seems to have the ability (and/or connections) to get the stories before everybody else.

    As for the YB J cerpen, I think Chamil Wariya's very smart and cheeky if you read between the lines. But it's fiction anyhow. Furthermore I think if I am to produce anything I'd try and sell it. So maybe this is his way of doing it. It might not be the best of ideas (or the most noble) but the fact that there's a RM100mil suit against him (or it) and people throughout the country are discussing about it proves that it (the selling strategy) is quite successful.

    Now, I do not remember supporting the cerpen Chamil Wariya did. But there is every possibility that this comment of mine will be thought of so.

  49. Terasa Kok does not have the mettle to be a Malaysian politician. She sounds more like a social worker, a very green horn and coming from a rich family, she can afford to pursue her legal defense with her daddy’s money. What’s in her political reputation is how she acts politically and pursuing defamation suit with only tarnish her image however good she maybe as a social worker. Perhaps one way to dilute her defamation capability is for more Malays and NGO’s to publicly comment on her negative actions; let her be tried by the media and all her defamation suits will come to nothing. Let her continue suing more people/ organizations and she will eventually and definitely loose out. If she wants to make it to the Guinness Books of Record for being the Malaysian politician with the most defamation suits, so be it. She should take cognizance that “blood is thicker than water” and most people can be irrational when they are challenged and when principles become meaningless. If she can’t play the political game, it would be best for her to quit and focus strictly on social activities.

  50. So much for a FAIR BRAND of DEMOCRACY.

    A cerpen that resembles her; mind you, it just have some resembling features of her. It doesn't necessarily be her. She too only agrees that it smells like her only on the physical features, AND NOT THE YB J CHARACTER… no!! she is way classier than the racist scumbag in the cerpen.

    But still it gets a huge outcry.

    But her clear mistake of insulting Najib on a clearly ‘fake document’ is cleanly swept under the carpet.

    She doesn’t even bother to say sorry as expected of a highly respectable with grandest human dignity that she is.

    Nor did she decide to sue herself as expected of a fighter of human right that she is.

    As a SENIOR EXCO NEXT AFTER THE MENTRI BESAR she would not go down and do that. Saying sorry is a degrading act for a person of her virtue.

    So, you can take some people at face value, and others are full of ulterior motives?

    I don't think suing for RM100 million is gonna get Theresa rich. The courts would know what is reasonable. That is symbolic, I am sure u wud know.

    I wonder though, if you realise Rocky, that the freedom of expression stance that you've been taking is freedom against repressive laws. Lawsuits are another matter don't u think?

    Who checks the newspapers? Let's have an example. Let's say a short story appears in an English daily.

    It revolves around this fictitious politician Datuk Seri Norman Rahman and how he got his hands dirty by association while trying to help his friend who is accused of murdering a foreign national.

    Story ends with this friend having to hang while Datuk Seri Norman is forced to resign and later arrested for complicity in the crime.

    Now that was fiction too. The writer and the newspaper will be heavily criticised for sure. In this case,, it may even get a show cause letter (the media owner).But the writer can always come forward and say this is fiction and nothing to do with what's happening today.

    However, it will be transparent to everybody, what the story is about. The English daily's political stance will be clear.

    Utusan has been getting away with alotta shit for a long time.Chamil Wariya is just another vehicle.

    There is malice intended in that writing, and if Utusan was keen on not "membangkitkan isu sensitif" it wud not have published this.

    Especially after Theresa denied ever having been part of the azan issue, and the parties in question corroborated her story.

    I will not forget, and nor will many Malaysians, that due to this paper's reporting, a woman was detained without the possibility of a trial (albeit a while).

  63. Dear Galadriel,

    Unlike most other newspapers, Utusan Malaysia has a section called Sastera. This newspaper's role in developing the minda Melayu and Malaysia since before Merdeka is unique -- it does not just inform and educate, it also produces many sasterawans and great work of Malay literature.

    Chamil Wariya's cerpen was published under this section. A cerpen, no matter how much it's inspired by true events, remains a fiction.

    And repressive laws aren't the only way to curtail freedom, my dear. Multi-million dollar suits work just as well, if not better, in suppressing Freedom of the Press. The latter could make you rich at the expense of poor journalists and editors like us.

  65. Also Galadriel, Ms Teresa should sue the government for detaining her under the ISA. Not the newspaper. The cops/Syed Hamid said she was detained because of Utusan's article?

    Why is she giving credence to their "excuse" of detaining her?

    When Pak Samad was detained in 1976, King Ghaz said the two journalists from Singapore had confessed that Samad was the link man to the communists. If it was Teresa, she would sue the two journalists?

    Thaks for the joke Chamil...I had a good laugh reading your defence and suddenly in praise of teresa.

    Tails in between your legs now ah?

    Stop this shit lah, Chamil You have advocated killing off racist politicians of the Chinese kind. It is morally, legally wrong to do such a thing. Let us all repent before we meet our maker. When God strikes, it will be real hard, Chamil. Please remember that.

    Rocky, why you and some member here, talk like Teresa Kok sure will win the case and get millions and the Press Freedom will lose out at the end of the day ????
    If Utusan has done it's job ethically, they would not be concern especially now, that Mohd Khir Toyo has shifted the blame to Utusan. Next question is, if a press has not done it's job responsibly n ethically, can they use "press Freedom" as a means of defence ?

  69. Galadriel is right. And even worst that the story is inciting murder. Double standards for Utusan. And ROcky, you think Teresa should sue the police government and not the paper? Why so protective?

    And here, the Chamil dude is doing a Lingam. Sounds like Teresa, not Teresa. Excellent defence.

    i think for his defence, chamil should do a cerpen about a datuk b from penang..datuk b made some statements calling all the non malays kaum pendatang, created a major uproar that forced the home ministry to apply special 'protection custody' to a chinese female reported who reported the case..then something happened to datuk b..i'll leave the fateful ending to chamil since he's a thousand times better in this than me..

    i bet a cerpen like this is more sensasi than some bloody ybJ la..afterall if YBJs cerpen is for entertainment, datuk b's cerpen will just be as entertaining..i'll get a copy of utusan myself if they post it..it'll definitely attract a whole throng of chinese readers to this malay daily..very good for business..

    chamil, do that and it'll surely boost ur stature as a writer/journalist/whatever u call urself..
