Persekutuan Tanah Melayu WAS NOT Only Independent of the British

September 25, 2011

31st August 2011, the 54th anniversary of the independence of PERSEKUTUAN TANAH MELAYU, fell a day after the Hari Raya Aidil-Fitri. So much so, the INDEPENDENCE DAY celebrations were delayed to coincide with the MALAYSIA DAY celebrations on the 16th September 2011, the 48th anniversary of the formation of Malaysia.

Persekutuan Tanah Melayu consisted of 4 Federated Malay States of Selangor, Pahang, Perak and Negri Sembilan, 5 Unfederated Malay States of Kedah, Perlis, Kelantan, Terengganu and Johore, and 2 Straits Settlement States of Malacca and Penang. Persekutuan Tanah Melayu was established in 1948, to replace the British-imposed MALAYAN UNION. Malayan Union was bitterly opposed by the then politically-conscious Malays, who united under UNITED MALAYS NATIONAL ORGANISATION(UMNO) to force the British to rescind it two years after its introduction.

The establishment of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu was the results of intense negotiations involving the British, the Malay Rulers and UMNO, the principle stakeholders to the future of Tanah Melayu states. The other races resident in Persekutuan Tanah Melayu then were mainly IMMIGRANT CHINESE WORKERS working in the tin mines, and IMMIGRANT INDIAN WORKERS working in rubber plantations.

However, the IMMIGRANT CHINESE WORKERS were mainly members and supporters of the Malayan Communist Party(MCP), a branch of the Communist Party of China(CPC). MCP was formed in 1930s, and in the absence of other well-organised societies, had become the MOST SUPPORTED Chinese-based organisation. Prior to the Japanese occupation of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in 1942,  its principle activities were to recruit more MCP party members, and to collect donations to support war efforts of their MOTHERLAND China in its decades of Sino-Japanese war.

When the Japanese invaded Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in 1942, the Chinese, whose MOTHERLAND China had been at war with Japan, became principle targets of Japanese brutalities. Although the MCP was not involve in real armed battles against the Japanese, they took the side of the British, mainly to get British assistance in terms of money and weapons. Unlike the Malay regiment, whose members fought to their last man and last bullet in the final defense of Singapore, then the administrative capital of British ‘protectorate’ and ‘colonies’ in the Far East, there were no reported similar heroic acts against the Japanese by the members of MCP.

However, the MCP’s ‘flirtation’ with the British just before, during and after the Japanese occupation had allowed  them to gather substantial assortment of arms, including those left behind by the British military when they withdrew to the FORTRESS SINGAPORE. And when the British air-dropped arms to the jungle of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, in their preparation to regain the Federation, the MCP did help themselves by ‘hijacking’ substantial caches of arms for themselves…for future use.

It was NO SURPRISE that during the two-week period after the Japanese surrender and the British ‘re-occupation force’ landing, MCP were swift in their takeover of several major towns in Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, swift in forming ‘local authorities’, and swift in establishing ‘kangaroo courts’ to pass judgements and excutions against their adversaries. Without the landing of ‘British re-occupation force’, MCP were sufficiently armed, to take over the political power in Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, despite the existing political structures with the Malay rulers still in place.

And it was NO SURPRISE that no sooner  Persekutuan Tanah Melayu was established in 1948, with full agreement of the Malay Rulers and UMNO, as a TRANSITIONAL GOVERNMENT on the road to FULL INDEPENDENCE, the MCP took to the jungle and started ARMED INSURGENCY against the TRANSITIONAL GOVERNMENT of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, forcing the Government to decree a STATE OF EMERGENCY.

During the 12-year EMERGENCY YEARS from 1948-1960, the Persekutuan Tanah Melayu was in a STATE OF WAR with the mainly IMMIGRANT CHINESE MEMBERS of the MCP. Police stations were attacked and burnt down, power stations were bombed and incapacitated, railway locomotives were derailed, water dams were destroyed and drained off, members of the armed forces and civilians alike were maimed and killed, and hundreds of other atrocities. Due to those atrocities perpetrated, the COMMUNISTS were later known as COMMUNIST TERRORISTS(CTs).

With a combined efforts of the Government,  members of Commonwealth, Malay Regiments and other local security services personnels, and the rakyat alike, the CTs were HEAVILY DEFEATED. By the time Persekutuan Tanah Melayu gained FULL INDEPENDENCE in 1957, the CTS, with their Commander-in-Chief Chin Peng directing operations from China, began to withdraw their units to the jungles bordering southern Thailand. And to avoid further onslaught by the armed forces of independent Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, the CTs were finally ordered to ‘run for their lives’  to southe hilly terrains of southern Thailand. By the year 1960, the Government declared victory over the CTs and ended the state of emergency.

By 1963, Malaysia was officially formed, by the MERGER of 11 states of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, and British former colonies of Singapore, Sarawak and Sabah.

For Malaysians, whenever they talk about INDEPENDENCE DAY, and MALAYSIA DAY, they are infact talking about INDEPENDENT FROM THE BRITISH, and FREEDOM FROM  TERRORIST ACTS OF THE COMMUNISTS.




Mat Sabu HISTORIC Blindness

September 3, 2011

The newly elected Deputy President of PAS, Mat Sabu, knows better than any body else, that he has made a HISTORIC blunder by describing the COMMUNISTS TERRORISTS(CTs) who attacked and burnt down the Bukit Kepong police station, together with all within it, as HEROES. But, as a typical PAS politician, he would not re-tract his statements…..despite a call by the Chairman of DAP, Karpal Singh, to do so.

To ‘add more salt to his injury’, Mat Sabu has made further statements,  indirectly recognising the Malayan Communist Party(MCP), a branch of the Communist Party of Mainland China, led by Chin Peng, as HEROES in the struggles for the independence of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu….and even comparing the COMMUNISTS with other fighters for independence like Dr. Burhanuddin El-helmy, the second President of PAS, Tok Janggut in Kelantan and Abdul Rahman Limbung in Trengganu.

To Mat Sabu, all of them, the COMMUNISTS and Dr. Burhanuddin El-Helmy, Tok Janggut and Abdul Rahman Limbong were all HEROES. To Mat Sabu, whoever who fought against the British colonisers were all HEROES, while those who appeared to him to work alongside the British were all BRITISH OFFICERS. To Mat Sabu, all those who appeared to him to be working along-side the British deserved to be attacked, killed and even burnt down to become ASHES.

However, Mat Sabu is BLIND to one simple HITORICAL FACT that the COMMUNIST TERRORISTS (CTs) attack on the Bukit Kepong police station took place in 1950, two years after the proclamation of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in 1948 by the British, after the Malays, united under the United Malays National Organisation(UMNO), bitterly opposed the MALAYAN UNION introduced by the British in 1946, months after the Japanese surrender in 1945. WHILST, other REAL MALAY HEROES who fought the British like Tok Janggut of Kelantan, Abdul Rahman Limbong of Trengganu, Mat Kilau and Datuk Bahaman of Pahang, Datuk Maharajalela of Perak and others  fought the British BEFORE 1948.

Mat Sabu is BLIND to the fact that 1948 was a SIGNIFICANT year for the Malays. It was the year the MALAYAN UNION, which would have recognised the then IMMIGRANT RACES as ABSOLUTELY EQUAL TO the INDIGENOUS MALAYS/BUMIPUTRAS, was officially set aside, and the Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, negotiated among the British, Raja-Raja Melayu and UMNO were put in its place. The setting up of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, as a transition Government on the road of FULL INDEPENDENCE, was agreed upon by Raja-Raja Melayu and UMNO. It was NO CO-INCIDENCE that immediately after the proclamation of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in 1948 that the Chin Peng-led MCP started their ARMED INSURGENCE against Persekutuan Tanah Melayu.

Mat Sabu should be sent to KEMUNTING ‘NURSERY’, to reflect on WHY the MCP was so opposed to the setting up of the Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, which were agreed upon by UMNO and Raja-Raja Melayu. Mat Sabu should undergo an ‘eye operation’, so that he could see the EARTH AND SKY DIFFERENCE between the genuine struggles of Malay heroes like Tok Janggut, Abdul Rahman Limbong, Mat Kilau, Datuk Bahaman and Datuk Maharajalela, and the futile struggle of the MAINLY IMMIGRANT COMMUNISTS.

ISLAM Liberates The World

September 1, 2011

Its a rare co-incidence that the Eid-ul-Fitri celebration, a day after the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, fell a day before 31st August 2011, the 54th Anniversary of the Independence Day of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. While, on 16th September 2011, the country will celebrate the 48th Anniversary of MALAYSIA DAY, the day MALAYSIA was officially formed.

However, its NO CO-INCIDENCE that Islam is a religion with a clear message of LIBERATION. Islam liberates human beings from:

1. The enslavement of human beings by other human beings, to the blessings of Allah, the Almighty God, the Creator of the Universe.

2. The ‘smallness’ of this world, to the VASTNESS of the world and the hereafter.

3. The injustices of man-made ideologies, to the justices of Islam.
