Mat Sabu HISTORIC Blindness
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.
