Janji Melayu Najib

RM3 million for Chinese school. The Chinese votes did not go to Barisan Nasional in the Hulu Selangor by-election that the coalition won last Sunday, but a promise's a promise. Even Kit had to take his hats here. My friend Syed Akbar thinks here is proof of how committed the PM is to 1Malaysia.

I am a pro-Satu Sekolah guy who believes that the best way to unite the peoples of this country or to achieve 1Malaysia, in other words, is to have a 1School policy.

For now, though, janji mesti ditepati. Kalau tak bukan janji Melayu namanya.

That has got to be the most wasted rm3mil ever.
Unless the chinese will vote for govt. If in their hearts they still think they want to vote the opposition, then honestly, if they have any pride, they should return the money. That 3mil should then be given to the org asli community who had all these while voted the govt.
They need better facilities.
Or, the money can then be given to national schools that need further equipment.

But if the chinese wanna remain selfish and greedy, biting shamelessly the hands that feed them, then all Malaysia knows what kind of people are you.

Other people can be generous and tolerant, but the chinese wouldn't care less...

FELDA became a hot issue during the Hulu Selangor buy-election. On top of misappropriation of settlers' land they have to keep on beg for compensation.

Like father like son - give-aways to the Chinese hoping for favours! To Lim the Genting gambling hub, now RM3million for a rebuff. Only they themselves know how to rule their own kind, LKY and Mao Tse Tung, with an iron hand.

never heard of janji melayu but i would think its opposite of what najib did

donplaypuks® said...

Easy to honour such promises when paid with the Rakyat's money!

And whose money went to pay all those Felda families? Again the Rakyat's although the developer who fled with the settlers' money did so earlier during UMNO/BN leadership!!

But then KKK Ali Baba of Perksong doesn't agree the Chinese should benefit becoz the mmajority voted for the Opposition albeit a 100& (NOT a cconstitutional) Malay, Zaid Ibrahim!! What a mess and what a contradiction and confusion by Perkosong!!

firstly, hats off to PM Najib for keeping his promise.

Secondly, Rocky - are u sure that is the definition of "janji melayu" . From the common definition here in Malaysia, that is not what it means. Maybe in Singapore, the land where you come from that could mean something else.

Anonymous said...

Please lah, the RM3mil wasn't from Najib's own pocket nor was it from yours, dear Rocky. It was from the taxpayers which also consist of Malaysian Chinese too.

umno/the malays still not getting this, most chinese are risk takers

if they want change, they will willing to take the risk for a big change, meaning put the opposition on the seat

mouth service / slogan chanting and donations from the gov can't give the change that they are looking for.

Why do they want big change?? Well the answer have been given by some of the UNMO commenter … To get rid of the gov / public bodies that bit the hands that feed them.

RM3 million? This is peanuts!
Imagine the thousands and thousands of Cina company paying tax to the tune of millions of riggit every year.

Why don't we just return you this RM3 million and give it to Ibrahim Ali, he needed it more. We can than ask the Chinese community to contribute, RM30 million is sup-sup-soi.

Who is still poor after 53 years? If you are poor blame it on yourself, you lost 53 years of opportunities and you cannot stop us being getting richer. Get a life Ibrahim Ali the child walking with a tongkat!

Actually Dato', I think the seed of racial divide was planted after Merdeka when the then Perikatan Government in their wisdom at that time allowed vernacular schools to flourish instead of having a one school for all system, all in the name of give and take between the dominant Malay/Bumis and the minority Chinese and Indians which is probably a good idea at that time.

On hind sight however,Indonesia, Thailand and even Singapore have a more or less one school system and they have now a vibrant population who speaks and write well in their respective national language and they are by and large united as one people one nation. I look in envy a Indonesian Chinese who speaks in Indonesian when they holiday in Singapore.

Sadly after 50 years of Merdeka, We Malays, Chinese and Indians are stuck somewhere where we should not be, a nation still talking about race when we should be talking about the nation's future united as one Malaysian people. I hold the separate school system for much of the mess we are in. Ineffective communication is a great barrier for unity, we cannot communicate effectively as one people if our young are voluntarily segregated at the school level. Even the great Dr Mahathir our PM of 22 years could not change the multi school system in the face of humongous political and NGO opposition. Maybe PM Najib who have said that he is prepared to make the difficult decisions for Malaysia, could do something about the 1 school system noble idea.

Having said that I think some of our Chinese countrymen should be looking at the larger picture, not just issues which concerns them only. In business it is good maybe to be selfish and greedy and kiasu and all that made but in dealing with other countrymen and the nation as a whole some sort of reciprocity would be a wonderful thing. It is indeed dangerous to vote according to racial line and issues only and people should not wear it like a badge of honor, as others, especially the majority, may follow suit and Malaysia will be really in trouble politically.

If the Malay ultras have their way in the next GE, what would happen if MCA/Gerakan are pitted against the DAP in Chinese dominated constituency while UMNO/MIC are pitted against PKR/PAS in Malay majority and mixed constituency. I shudder to think of the likely consequences.

If the HS-byelection is to go by, BN did not win convincingly and the youth are going for the Pakatan and to ensure an outright win in the next GE, PM Najib have to make the tough adjustments during candidates allocation in order to just survive and win the DAP/PAS/PKR offensive. As such BN would soon find itself in the Opposition if voting by racial lines are tolerated and not contained now.

Giving 3 million here 1 million there to Chinese, Indian schools or Islamic religious schools would not do as people will ask and take but not necessarily give their votes to the giver.

Rocky, I too agree on 1School system, however does that mean the government is ready to

1. Open up UiTM to all races?
2. Open up MCKK to all races?
3. Open up all MARA schools?
4. Everyone takes the same pre-u exams?

I hope the government is not trying to have one's cake and eat it too...

Well now that Najib has seen the true colours of the chinese, maybe in the immediate future, consider this fact in his policy making.

... Najib must remember that more Malays stood behind him including PERKASA and Tun Dr M.

The question is to what extent he will carry out this placating, wooing the "love of no return" thing.

Tengku A Rahman gave away Singapore to the Chinese and get cursed even long after his death. Would Najib give away so many things just to get back 2/3 majority and achieve developed status by 2020? Chinese schools are not in line with Article 152 on position of Bahasa Malaysia. He didn't have to flout support for something like that.

Najib certainly is not the son of his father by his deeds. He did not live in a kampong and know the pulse of the Malays like his father did. His father tried to get the Malays catch up with the Chinese, now only 18% corporate wealth and a disproportionate ratio of those qualified in the various professions. Najib New Economic Model speaks about equal opportunities. I fear Malays will curse him like they did Tengku A Rahman.

eddy,

Your views are heartening, especially those pertaining to single-stream schooling or Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS).

We would like to invite you, and others as well, to the discussions in our Kempen SSS blog at http://satusekolahuntuksemua.wordpress.com/.

We are looking for a brave and strong-willed leadership to start taking action on the SSS concept. After the subject was raised and discussed in Parliament a few months back, DS Najib has said the SSS would be implemented when the rakyat wants it. He has not stated how to determine whether or not the rakyat wants it now.

We have suggested that the safest and politically defensible method is via a referendum. We hope DS Najib will start taking action when he feels well entrenched in the country's leadership role soon.

And the RM3m given after some cajoling by Kit to both PM & MCA people. Actually, this one given under press ball condition.

Don't talk about people sleeping for hundreds of years. I've been watching you. You have once said that Malaya was colonised for hundreds of years since Malacca. You don't even know that the Portuguese ruled only Malacca, the Dutch also did not rule the hinterland and the British only ruled the "Straits Settlements", later the "Federated Malay States" after 1874 and ruled the whole of Malaya only much later.

You talk thru your asshole, don't you. That's why often bloody smelly. Anwarul Jalan Belakang won't like it, man.

Read up the book, "The Malay Civilisation", by Mohd Arof Ishak, published by The Historical Society of Malaysia, which gives scores of research studies by relevant experts that the Malays have been here for some 6,000 years, spreading to Madagascar, Christmas Island, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii. Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia, etc. The Champa Malays in Vietnam and Cambodia are still there as a society. They were the first to settle parts of the two countries since about 2,000 years ago. Visit the Museum or ask the Department of Museums and Antiquities for literature showing documentary proofs of that, old man.

Studies have been made by experts in linguistics, anthropology, archaeology etc since the 19th Century and heightened in the 2nd half of the 20th Century. Ring up The Historical Society of Malaysia if you can't find copies of the book in your usual bookstore - if you do visit bookstores, that is.

And The Historical Society is not a school club, mind you. It was formed since British colonial times. Among the Executive Committee and council members are Professors of History like Prof Tan Sri Khoo Kay Kim and Prof Dato Zainal Abidin Wahid and Malay Studies Professors like Prof Dato Mohd Taib Osman.

Don't keep on jabbing at the Malays until you have read that book. You can't be disputing those linguistic, anthropology, archaeology and history experts because you only have an accounts background, don't you?

The Malays are a large family of 350 million people known as the "Rumpun Melayu" comprising of people in the entire Malay Archipelago and beyond, including the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak, the Indonesians, the Filipinos, the Polynesians, etc. Those research studies since the 19th Century were done by foreigners and had no other objective than academic, historical and sociological.

Read up also the Early History volume of the Encyclopedia of Malaysia written in the last 2-3 decades by both Malaysian history and other experts as well as Professors and PhD holders from University Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, National University of Singapore, National University of Australia, etc.

And you don't even know the basic history of Malaya, yet wanting to talk about history, you dumb ass.

salam rocky's bru.\,

Your posting is timely as the public debate goes on based on racial lines and not political acumen reflected by Najib's 1Malaysia agenda.

What is the big deal of RM3 million to be put into good education use for the extension of the Chinese school?we should express constructive criticisms and should not be politically emotional on the issue. also please note that there are also Malay students studying in the Chinese schools in Hulu Selangor.

Janji Melayu mesti ditunaikan tetapi ada sebilangan besar Melayu tak bayar hutang pinjaman.just revisit the MARA outstanding loans given to Malays for education and business development that will reveal to us how much the Malays have defaulted such loans since the inception of MARA to help the privileged Malays and bumiputras.

Please don't get me wrong as i am not a racist nor against any special financial help to Malays and bumiputras.they certainly deserved the government's financial assistance but some of them had abused their privileges on borrowed money and from public funds.

I believe prime minister is making a serious attempt to change the mind set and attitude of the Malays to be more prudent with absolute integrity.the government will continue to provide financial assistance and other privileges to all deserving Malays, but at the same time also to correct the existing widening disparity between the Malays and non-Malays.

Statistic shows that more than 70% of the Chinese population are registered voters compared to less than 50% of the Malays and others. i agreed with Tun Mahathir that the "malays will not win any election on their own without the support of the Chinese and others".
the Chinese are in the same political dilemma too, as without the Malay support, they will never win an election.

Finally, i also agreed with Tun Mahathir that there are many "extremist Chinese" in the community who will continue to support DAP and PKR at all cost.MCA and Gerakan should agree that there are more extremist Chinese than extremist Malays based on racial equilibrium.they should not only criticise the Malays but also look into their own backyard and provide long term strategies to win back the Chinese support to Barisan Nasional.

Srikanth Siva,

You need to understand and accept that you and other non-Malays got citizenship in exchange for the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak getting a Special Position under the Constitution.

Those were agreed by the non-Malay and Malay leaders at Merdeka. The Constitution was discussed and approved by representatives of practically all the communities in Malaysia and you have to hnour that, respect it and live by it. It's the highest set of laws in the country. All other laws emanate from it. No other law can contradict the Constitution as it will be ultra vires and cannot become law.

MCKK was there even before Merdeka. It was set up by the British upon the special request of the then Sultan of Perak for Malay boys to study in English. The British did not build English schools in the kampongs where most Malays lived but built sufficient English schools in the towns where most Chinese lived. MCKK was also meant as to prepare Malays for administrative service of the country. MCKK was not within the ambit of the NEP but was perhaps under the Malay Special Position.

MRSMs and the others were under the NEP. That policy was derived from Article 153 on the Malay Special Position. It was started after the racial riots of 1969 at which time the Malays, the majority in this country, had hardly 2% of the welath of the country and hardly 5% in the various professions.

As fully residential schools, MRSMs helped the Malays from the kampongs to get secondary-level educational and related facilities almost non-existent in rural areas. There is no reliable and up-to-date data showing how much of the gap between the Malays and the Chinese position has been bridged. As of now, for example, there are only 30% Bumi qualified accountants registered with the Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants when
the Malays and the Bumis of Sabah and Sarawak should have 70%.

So MRSMs should continue as they are. That was part of the deal in so far as the Special Position is concerned. The deal was the Malays get the Special Position and the non-Malays get citizenship. If the non-Malay citizenship is forever, why can't the benefits under the Special Position be forever? If you start questioning that, the Malays may start questioning the citizenship for you descendants and it's no good for anybody.

Dear SSS Admin,

Actually PM Najib had laid the foundation of the one school system by stating that it could be implemented if the rakyat wanted it. Like you I think the best way to find out if the rakyat wants it, is through a public referundum.
