Malaysians Prefer No Street Demonstration

September 25, 2015

I find myself in agreement with MCA’s President, that the Government should not allow any street demonstrations in future.

As events unfolded in the last few weeks, street demonstrations by Bersih4.0 was countered by another demonstrations by the RED SHIRTS two weeks later. And as we had all witnessed, how certain ‘side-shows’ like certain young Chinese girls stamping their feet on photos of Malay leaders during Bersih4.0 had triggered so much anger and revenge among the Malays.

If we care to take a leaf from our nation’s history, not many will dispute that the ‘victory parades’ by DAP in the middle of KL immediately after the general election in 1969 was responsible to spark off counter demonstrations which triggered the worst racial riot our country had ever experienced.

Many countries can still prosper without street demonstrations. Just listen how our Malaysian Chinese friends talk proudly about the achievements of China, Hong Kong and Singapore. Even Bersih4.0 was not allowed in either Singapore and China. And…there are over 95% ethnic Chinese in both China and Hong Kong…and over 85% ethnic Chinese in Singapore.

If countries like China, Hong Kong and Singapore can prosper without street demonstrations, why DAP Chinese are so keen on street demonstration in this country…their country too..when such activities may trigger racial unrest and conflicts.

Really agree with MCA….STOP ALL STREET DEMOS IN FUTURE….lets be fair to all.

Malaysian Chinese Youths….Fortunately You Are In Malaysia

May 27, 2013
We are in solidarity because we care
 

More than 100,000 people had thronged a single rally and there was no untoward incident then. However, 30 turn up at a candlelight vigil to show solidarity for a young and courageous Malaysian, and it turned chaotic.

So, when someone claims that we go to the streets “to foment chaos”, he hasn’t a clue or he is plain lying through his teeth. I would say that this person had ill intents….. –  Malaysiakini

The above is part of a letter from a typical Chinese young people, which was sent to Malaysiakini. The question is, do she and her comrades REALLY CARE for the country?

Let me first remind them that, in the ‘great country’ of their forefathers, they would not even have a chance to take part in a DEMOCRATIC PROCESS like the PRU13 which was just over, let alone PROTESTING OVER THE ELECTION RESULT.

Even in ‘democratic’  Chinese-ruled Singapore, where 85% of the population are Chinese, she and her comrades would NOT be allowed more than a few minutes in such gatherings without being arrested.

Why MAKE SO MUCH NOISE about this country, when Chinese-dominated governments like People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Singapore, do not even allow GATHERINGS, let alone PROVOCATIVE GATHERINGS. Yes your gatherings have been PROVOCATIVE to say the least….protesting the results of the PRU13, despite DAP-led Penang, PAS-led Kelantan and PKR-led Selangor governments taking their oath of office.

Popular votes???? can you say it again!!! BN came out the MOST POPULAR and with MOST SEATS….followed by PKR, DAP and PAS. Please do not try to change the RULES OF THE GAME while the game is going on. Pakatan Rakyat is NOT a single party, UNLIKE the BN. DAP, PKR and PAS contested the election using their own seperate LOGOs….so there is no way for you to talk about popular votes. After all, the existing ‘rule of the game’ is by the NUMBER OF SEATS….ada faham????

Do you think the Chinese can rule the country better? No No No!!! Give us the prove that Chinese-dominated Governments would do better….apart from RULING WITH IRON FISTS….like in Singapore and China.

Are you inciting Malays-dominated Government of Malaysia to rule with IRON FISTS too? Is that the only way to keep Chinese youths off the streets??

I believe your time and energy will be better spent on influencing REFORMS and CHANGE(UBAH) in the countries of your forefathers first, before ‘meddling’ in  Malaysia. If you are not aware of it, let me tell you that Malaysia has long been regarded as  one of the HEALTHIEST democracies in the world.

Dua Universiti Dari China Akan Buka Cawangan di Malaysia, Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi Biar Betul….

January 26, 2013

Tidak dapat dinafikan, semua menteri-menteri di dalam kabinet DS Najib, berlumba-lumba untuk menunjukkan prestasi memberansangkan kementerian masing-masing. Dengan itu, mereka mungkin ada menetapkan tanda-aras tertentu bagi meyakinkan YAB Perdana Menteri bahawa mereka telah mencapai kejayaan tertentu di dalam mengendalikan kementerian di bawah mereka.

Namun begitu, menteri-menteri dari UMNO jangan sekali-kali lupa satu fakta sejarah, bahawa menjelang tahun 1930an, kaum PENDATANG dari negara China telah MELEBIHI penduduk asal Melayu/Bumiputra di Tanah Melayu….dan kalau bukan kerana ECONOMIC RECESSION pada awal tahun 1930an, bilangan PENDATANG dari Negara China mungkin telah berlipat ganda lebih ramai dari penduduk asal Melayu/Bumiputra. Sebagai kaum PENDATANG, mereka adalah sebagai semut, di mana ‘di mana ada gula, di situ ada semut’. Apabila berlaku ECONOMIC RECESSION pada awal 1930an,ramai dari  kaum PENDATANG dari Negara China telah pulang semula ke China, atau telah berpindah ke negara-negara lain termasuk Amerika Syarikat, Australia, New Zealand dan negara-negara Eropah.

Tanpa ECONOMIC RECESSION pada awal 1930an, UMNO dan Raja-Raja Melayu berkemungkinan besar terpaksa menerima lebih dari 1.5 juta kaum bukan Melayu sebagai warganegara demi memenuhi kehendak British, yang telah termakan budi kaum PENDATANG China yang telah memihak kepada British semasa peperangan dengan Jepun(1942-1945). Tanpa ECONOMIC RECESSION 1930an, kemungkinan besar, nisbah penduduk PENDATANG dari Negara China yang mendapat taraf warganegara di Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, termasuk kewarganegaraan British di negeri-negeri Selat iaitu Singapura, Melaka dan Pulau Pinang, telah menjadi seperti nisbah China-Melayu di Singapura sekarang iaitu 80% Cina dan 15% Melayu.

Dari sudut ekonomi, memanglah kita menggalakkan pelabur-pelabur luar negara untuk melabur di negara kita, termasuk membeli tanah-tanah untuk dimajukan seperti di Iskandar Malaysia, atau membuka cawangan-cawangan universiti-universiti luar negara di negara ini. TETAPI, setiap usaha kita perlulah berdasarkan ‘guide-lines’ tertentu, supaya tidak menjejaskan kestabilan negara kita di masa akan datang. JANGAN PISANG BERBUAH DUA KALI. Kita perlu ‘tepuk dada dan tanya selera’ kita. Apakah kita mahu sekali lagi lagi melihat bilangan kaum Cina mengatasi bilangan kaum Melayu/Bumiputra di Malaysia? Sedangkan kaum PENDATANG China telah cuba mengambil alih kuasa di Tanah Melayu selepas perang Jepun, menggunakan Parti Komunis Malaya, yang merupakan cawangan Parti Komunis China.

Sedangkan, negara jiran kita Singapura, di mana kaum Cina merupakan 80% dari penduduknya pun melaksanakan sistem RACIAL QUOTA di dalam membenarkan pendatang dan Permanent Citizens(PR) diterima masuk ke negara itu. Lihat sahaja apa yang telah aku dedahkan seminggu yang lalu:

Based on the figures by the Migration Policy Institute, very GLARING FACT about the racial composition of the Singapore PR population is the VAST DISPARITY between the percentage of Chinese PR(61.4%) and the Malays PR(3.0 %), compared to RACIAL COMPOSITION of Singapore RESIDENTS POPULATION. Infact the composition of Indian PR(20.4%) is 7 times higher than that of the Malays. PAP officials may attribute the GLARING FACT on certain procedures like requiring potential PR  to be of certain economic and career standings and background, like having to be from Professional groupings, established businessmen etc. However, its an open secret that Singapore Government have been more inclined to ‘recruit’ PR from countries of ‘Greater China’ like Hong Kong, Macao and People’s Republic of China itself. Its no co-incidence that in 1989, Singapore had put in place several policies to encourage ‘skilled people’(to be read as ‘skilled Chinese) from Hong Kong to settle down in Singapore as PRs. – Warisan Tanah Melayu Kita

Sekiranya ada pihak yang beranggapan bahawa luahan hati aku ini bersifat RACIST, mereka juga perlu melabelkan Kerajaan Singapura yang dikuasai oleh kaum Cina juga sebagai RACIST, kerana melaksanakan berbagai peraturan bermatlamatkan mengekalkan RACIAL QUOTA penduduk Singapura seperti mana yang ada sekarang. Selain dari ‘Immigration Policies’, terdapat berbagai lagi polisi Kerajaan Singapura yang berasaskan RACIAL QUOTA, termasuk polisi pemilikan rumah.

Sekiranya Kerajaan Singapura yang dikuasai kaum Cina boleh melaksanakan dasar-dasar berpaksikan mengekalkan RACIAL QUOTA yang memihak kepada kaum Cina….bagi mengekalkan KETUANAN CINA di Singapura, apakah salahnya jika Kerajaan Malaysia juga melaksanakan dasar-dasar yang sama bagi mengekalkan KETUANAN MELAYU di Malaysia?????

Berdasarkan perbincangan-perbincangan di atas, aku ingin mengingatkan ahli-ahli politik Melayu, baik dari UMNO, PAS dan PKR, jangan terlalu ‘naive’ atau ‘mengambil mudah’ di dalam mengejar populariti. Berwaspadalah di dalam apa keputusan yang kita buat, supaya nasib malang bangsa Palestin di bumi Palestin,  TIDAK AKAN MENIMPA  BANGSA MELAYU di bumi Malaysia suatu hari nanti.

Are Singapore Immigration Policies Based On RACIAL QUOTA Favouring the Chinese?

January 19, 2013

Ever since its ‘independence’ from Malaysia in 1965, Singapore has been ruled by the Chinese-centred People’s Action Party, or PAP. Prior to the ‘independence’, PAP managed to win a Parlimentary seat in Semenanjung Tanah Melayu, ie Bangsar. The PAP only member of Parliment was Mr. Devan Nair, who, after the ‘independence’ of Singapore, became one of the founding members of  the ‘Malaysian-version’ of PAP, the Democratic Action Party, or DAP.

One of major objectives of both PAP and DAP was to abolish the ‘Kedudukan istimewa Melayu’ provisions in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia. Despite an Indian  being the first Secretary General of DAP, the DAP has been Chinese-centred, like its predecessor PAP of Singapore. Devan Nair was called back to Singapore in 1968, and later appointed President of Singapore. His post as the Secretary General of DAP was briefly passed on to Goh Hock Guan before it went into the hand of Lim Kit Siang in 1969,  for the next 30 years. It was the year of DAP’s debut in Malaysian General Election on 9th May, and according to the late Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia,  it was the PROVOCATIVE  VICTORY PARADES organised  by DAP in the heart of Kuala Lumpur  on 10th, 11th and 12th May  which sparked off the 13th May 1969 worst RACIAL RIOT the country had ever witnessed.

I’m here today not to reflect back on the HORRENDOUS EVENTS of 1969, but would like to draw the attention of fellow bloggers and visitors to my site across the world, towards PAP-ruled Singapore, in particular its Immigration policies. This may provide us a good insight into what DAP, the Malaysian counterpart of PAP Singapore, would be indulging themselves in should they be in position of power.

Let me start by highlighting the RACIAL COMPOSITION of the RESIDENT POPULATION of Singapore. According to an analysis by the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute, the RESIDENT POPULATION of Singapore in 2010 was 3,771,721, comprising of 74.11% Chinese, 13.4% Malays, 9.2% Indians and 3.3% others.

According to the same analysis, Singapore RESIDENT POPULATION is divided into two catagories, CITIZENS and PERMANENT RESIDENTS(PR).  PR have the same responsibilities and benefits like the CITIZENS, apart from not being allowed to vote in Singapore elections. In, 2010, out of the total Singapore RESIDENTS POPULATION, 14.34% are those with PR status. Out of the 541,002 PR, 61.4% are Chinese, 3.0% Malays, 20.4% Indians and 15.2% others.

Based on the figures by the Migration Policy Institute, very GLARING FACT about the racial composition of the Singapore PR population is the VAST DISPARITY between the percentage of Chinese PR(61.4%) and the Malays PR(3.0 %), compared to RACIAL COMPOSITION of Singapore RESIDENTS POPULATION. Infact the composition of Indian PR(20.4%) is 7 times higher than that of the Malays. PAP officials may attribute the GLARING FACT on certain procedures like requiring potential PR  to be of certain economic and career standings and background, like having to be from Professional groupings, established businessmen etc. However, its an open secret that Singapore Government have been more inclined to ‘recruit’ PR from countries of ‘Greater China’ like Hong Kong, Macao and People’s Republic of China itself. Its no co-incidence that in 1989, Singapore had put in place several policies to encourage ‘skilled people'(to be read as ‘skilled Chinese) from Hong Kong to settle down in Singapore as PRs.

We do not have to be ‘geniuses’  like Lee Kuan Yew, Goh Chock Tong and Lee Hsien Loong,  to read ‘between the lines’ that such policies were meant to bring in MORE CHINESE into Singapore, and to provide checks on the increase of its Malay population.

PAS Bersubahat Dengan Pakatan DAP-Gereja

October 7, 2012

Menjelang PRU 13 yang hampir mendatang, saban hari kita disajikan dengan ‘breaking news’ yang hangat-hangat, khususnya di ‘political hotspots’ seperti Selangor dan Pulau Pinang.

Kita ucapkan tahniah kepada YBK kerana telah memenangi hak ke atas tanah milikan mereka di Serendah. Pembinaan UiTM di Serendah sudah tentu akan menjadi ‘catalyst’ kepada pembangunan pesat di Hulu Selangor. Keputusan mahkamah berhubung tanah milik YBK ini memberikan satu TAMPARAN hebat kepada Kerajaan Selangor. Selain dari ini, kita percaya, keengganan Kerajaan Pakatan Selangor tidak membenarkan pembinaan Loji Air Langat 2 akan memberikan kelebihan kepada BN menjelang PRU 13, demikian juga dengan gerakan menuntut tunggakan subsidi air yang semakin hebat hari demi hari.

Berita-berita dari utara, khususnya Pulau Pinang tidak kurang hebatnya. Tahniah kepada Pemuda BN Pulau Pinang kerana berjaya mendedahkan perlakuan-perlakuan ‘double standard’ Kerajaan DAP Pulau Pinang di dalam beberapa urusan jual-beli  hartanah, khususnya terma-terma ‘istimewa’ bila berurusan dengan kroni-kroni mereka, tetapi sebaliknya pula dengan syarikat-syarikat Pemaju yang dikaitkan dengan Kerajaan Persekutuan. Nampaknya Kerajaan Pulau Pinang banyak belajar dari Singapura di dalam SOSIAL ENGINEERING, bagi menambahkan penduduk Cina di PULAU Pulau Pinang, dan ‘menghalau’ Melayu/Bumiputra ke Seberang Perai…inilah gambaran yang sedang berlaku di Pulau Pinang.

Sehari dua lepas, umat Islam dikejutkan pula dengan berita ‘breaking news’ bahawa Lim Guan Eng telah cuba MENCUCUK golongan gereja di Pulau Pinang, di dalam suatu perjuampaan dengan kira-kira 300 pemimpin Gereja.  Semasa di Melaka dulu, Lim Guan Eng  ‘mencucuk’ orang Melayu untuk membenci UMNO/BN. Tetapi, di Pulau Pinang, LGE rata-rata gagal di dalam usahanya memperdaya kaum Melayu, sekalipun pernah menyertai perarakan Maulidu Rasul beberapa tahun lepas. Jadi menjelang PRU 13, Lim Guan Eng terpaksa mendapatkan sokongan padu kaum Cina, termasuk yang beragama Kristian. LGE tahu bahawa amat mudah ‘mencucuk’ penganut Kristian supaya membenci kepimpinan Melayu/Islam di negara ini.

Walaupun ada seorang dua pemimpin Kristian menyatakan kurang senang dengan apa yang telah diserukan oleh LGE kepada 300 pemimpin gereja sehari dua lepas, aku sebenarnya tidak sedikit pun terkejut  mendengar berita 300 pemimpin gereja di Pulau Pinang bersedia menerima kehadiran LGE, dan turut bersedia memberikan ruang dan peluang kepada LGE untuk ‘mencucuk’ mereka dengan pemikiran-pemikiran membenci UMNO/BN….pertembungan antara Kristian dan Islam telah berlaku sejak lebih seribu tahun yang lalu, dan ‘cold war’ tersebut berterusan sehingga sekarang…samada secara terang atau secara senyap. LGE pula memang hebat di dalam ‘menangguk di air yang keruh’…..dan ‘mencucuk’  memang KEPAKARAN LGE. Kalau di negara-negara kuku besi seperti China, ‘pencucuk’ seperti LGE mungkin telah di’nyahkan’ ke Gurun Gobi untuk bercakap-cakap dengan bukit-bukit pasir seorang diri.

Persoalan selanjutnya, apakah PAS hanya berdiam diri melihat Pakatan DAP-Gereja. Semua sudah tahu jawapannya….sudah tentu PAS akan berdiam diri dan memerhatikan sahaja. Bagi PAS, undi Cina DAP amat berharga sekali, malah lebih berharga dari agama dan bangsa mereka. Bukankah apabila orang Kristian menggunakan nama ALLAH di dalam Injil mereka  sekali pun, PAS boleh diam juga….malah memberikan pula justifikasi kepada kaum Kristian. Bagi aku, orang Melayu/Islam sudah tidak boleh menaruh sebarang pengharapan kepada PAS lagi.

Tidak susah untuk kita membayangkan bahawa LGE akan mempertahankan Pulau Pinang dengan apa cara sekalipun, supaya tidak tergendala  impiannya menjadikan Pulau Pinang sebagai satu lagi CHINESE STATE…..dengan bantuan Gereja dan PAS… selepas Lee Kuan Yew berjaya menjadikan Singapura CHINESE STATE pertama di luar Greater China.

Registration of DAP Can Be Cancelled For Advocating MALAYSIAN MALAYSIA.

September 18, 2012

The concept of MALAYSIAN MALAYSIA was first advocated by the Singapore-based PAP, shortly after the formation of Malaysia. MALAYSIAN MALAYSIA envisaged a Malaysian society which would do away with SPECIAL POSITION OF MALAYS/BUMIPUTRAS as provided for in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

PAP’s obsession with MALAYSIAN MALAYSIA was bitterly opposed by UMNO, the backbone of the then ruling Alliance Party which consisted of UMNO, MCA and MIC. Eventually, this had resulted into the expulsion of Singapore from the Federation. It was seen by many as an act of ‘amputating’ certain cancerous part the body in order to keep the other parts of the body healthy.

However, the expulsion of Singapore did not stop ‘PAP’s ideology’ from being upheld in Malaysia by former supporters of PAP in Malaysia, who later formed the Democratic Actions Party(DAP), whose present leadership include Lim Kit Siang as its advicer, Lim Guan Eng as the Secretary General, and Karpal Singh as the Chairman. DAP’s debut in the 1969 General Election co-incided with the the most devastating racial riots the country had ever witnessed for decades.

DAP’s persistent advocacy of MALAYSIAN MALAYSIA, which aims to remove policies favourable to the Malays/Bumiputras,as provided for in the Federal Constitution,  has been the MOST POTENT FLASHPOINT in Malaysian politics and race-relations in the country. Infact, Lim Kit Siang used to write a book entitled ‘THE TIME BOMB’ , forecasting an inter-racial ‘explosion’ along the path of our nation. Paradoxically, DAP has been the ‘God-father’  of Chinese educationists who have been upholding CHINESE-MEDIUMED SCHOOLS.

I did wonder, whether, a political party like DAP, whose aspirations are IN CONTRADICTION to the spirit and letters of our Federal Constitution should be allowed to exist as a REGISTERED SOCIETY, what more about being allowed to take part in the political elections in the country. I’d looked for some answers in the Societies Acts 1966. Having browsed through back and forth, my attention was focused on the item 2A which was listed under a heading ‘REGISTERED SOCIETIES TO ACT IN FULFILLMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION’.

Item 2A started with: “It should be the duty of every registered society to carrying out its activities and conducting  its affairs, to ensure that they are in accord, and conducive to the fulfillment of and adherence to, the provisions of the Federal Constitution and the State Constitution, and where any of the activities or affairs of any society is in any manner vialative of, or derogatory to, or militate against, or show disregard for……………………the position of the Malays and the natives of Sabah and Sarawak……as provided in the Federal Constitution, the Registrar may CANCEL the registration of the society…..”.

Having studied the provisions in the Societies Act 1966, I reached a FIRM CONCLUSION that many political parties in the country, notably the DAP, have been conducting their activities and affairs, in a manner VIALATIVE OF, DEROGATORY TO, MILITATE AGAINST, and SHOW DISREGARD to the Federal Constitution, in particular, with regards to THE SPECIAL POSITION OF MALAYS/BUMIPUTRAS.  These have been the underlying factors WHY there have been so much POLITICS OF HATE been spread out to all corners of our country.

The Societies Act 1966 are very clear about it. And the Act clearly spelt out WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE to monitor the activities and affairs of registered societies, and what actions are within their powers to exercise, when certain societies conduct their activities and affairs IN CONTRADICTION to the spirit and letters of our Federal Constitution. I hope all pro-BN bloggers will take note and study this matter further, so that we can ensure that any political party who are acting against the letters and spirit of our Federal Constitution will get their registration CANCELLED, and not be allowed to dictate or determine the future of our GREAT NATION.

Apakah Kita Telah Korbankan KEMELAYUAN Persekutuan Tanah Melayu Kerana Malaysia?

September 17, 2012

Semalam, tanggal 16 September 2012, adalah Hari Ulangtahun Penubuhan MALAYSIA ke 49. Kepada semua warga Malaysia di seluruh dunia, aku secara tulus ikhlas mengucapkan SELAMAT HARI MALAYSIA.

Amat bertepatan sekali, aturcara-aturcara berkaitan sambutan HARI MALAYSIA banyak tertumpu kepada Sabah dan Sarawak. HARI MALAYSIA amat besar maknanya kepada seluruh warga Malaysia, terutamanya warga Malaysia di Sabah dan Sarawak, kerana tarikh 16 September 1963  merupakan tarikh rasmi kemerdekaan Sabah dan Sarawak dari penjajah British, sedangkan tarikh rasmi kemerdekaan bagi negeri-negeri Persekutuan Tanah Melayu ialah 31 Ogos 1957.

Pada pemerhatian kasar aku, warga Malaysia di negeri-negeri Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, atau Semenanjung Tanah Melayu, lebih memberikan tumpuan kepada sambutan Hari Kemerdekaan pada tanggal 31 Ogos setiap tahun, berbanding dengan sambutan Hari Malaysia pada tanggal 16 September. Aku percaya ini ada kaitannya dengan beberapa faktor sejarah. Umpamanya, umat Melayu telah menubuhkan   UMNO pada tahun 1946 adalah untuk menentang penubuhan Malayan Union, dan setelah British menarik balik Malayan Union dan menggantikannya dengan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, perjuangan UMNO dihalakan pula ke arah menuntut kemerdekaan penuh bagi Persekutuan Tanah Melayu.

Kejayaan kerajaan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, di bawah pemerintahan parti Perikatan yang ditunjangi UMNO, menyatu-padukan masyarakat berbagai kaum dan membawa pembangunan kepada Persekutuan Tanah Melayu telah memberikan inspirasi kepada pihak British untuk menggabungkan empat lagi koloninya di Asia Tenggara, iaitu Singapura, Brunei, Sabah dan Sarawak bersama negeri-negeri Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. Antara punca utama ialah untuk mengakhiri tuntutan Filipina ke atas Sabah serta masalah ancaman parti-parti Komunis ke atas Singapura, Sarawak dan Brunei. Brunei membatalkan hasrat untuk bergabung dalam Malaysia, sementara Singapura pula telah dikeluarkan dari Malaysia pada tahun 1965.  Sehingga sekarang, Sabah dan Sarawak kekal sebagai sebahagian dari Malaysia.

Sehingga sekarang, aku belum mendapat satu jawapan yang memuaskan, apakah keuntungan ketara kepada Persekutuan Tanah Melayu di awal tahun 1960an hasil dari bergabung dengan Sabah dan Sarawak. Sedangkan pada tahun 1960an, kedua-dua Sabah dan Sarawak jauh lebih mundur berbanding negeri-negeri Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, dan sudah tentu banyak memerlukan suntikan kewangan dari Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk memajukan kedua-dua negeri tersebut.  Secara ikhlas, aku berpandangan bahawa, pada era 1960an, penubuhan Malaysia lebih banyak memberikan menafaat kepada Sabah dan Sarawak, berbanding dengan negeri-negeri Persekutuan Tanah Melayu yang lain.

Namun begitu, sebagai seorang pendukung perjuangan ‘Agenda Melayu Berteraskan Islam’, aku menyokong penuh penubuhan Malaysia, yang telah menggabungkan Sabah dan Sarawak dengan negeri-negeri Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. Bagi aku, kedua-dua Sabah dan Sarawak asalnya adalah sebahagian dari wilayah umat melayu/Islam di bawah kedaulatan Kesultanan Melayu Brunei, sebelum diserahkan kepada British berdasarkan perjanjian-perjanjian tertentu, oleh itu amat sesuailah jika kedua-dua wilayah tersebut bergabung dengan negeri-negeri Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, di Semenanjung Tanah Melayu.

Di dalam kegembiraan dan kebanggaan kita menyambut Hari Malaysia, aku tidak dapat menyembunyikan sedikit kesedihan. Dengan terbentuknya Malaysia, seolah-olah hilanglah nama PERSEKUTUAN TANAH MELAYU dari peta dunia, sedangkan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu merupakan ASAS UTAMA penubuhan Malaysia, iaitu ‘Federation’ 11 buah negeri-negeri di Semenanjung Tanah Melayu, berbanding dengan hanya 2 buah negeri Sabah dan Sarawak. Walaupun Bahasa Melayu di iktiraf sebagai bahasa resmi di dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia, sekolah-sekolah kita lebih selesa menggunakan istilah Bahasa Malaysia. Nama Semenanjung Tanah Melayu entah kenapa telah ditukar kepada Malaysia Barat, sementara Sabah dan Sarawak pula disebut sebagai Malaysia Timur. Di segi perundangan, Hakim Besar negeri-negeri Tanah Melayu di sebut Hakim Besar Malaya. Malah, nama Keretapi Tanah Melayu telah ditukar kepada KTMB Berhad.

Jangan salahkan aku jika aku menyambut HARI MALAYSIA dengan sedikit ‘mixed-feeling’, samada kita telah mengorbankan aspek-aspek ‘kemelayuan’ yang terdapat di dalam Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, di dalam usaha kita untuk menubuhkan Malaysia. Bagi mempastikan warga Malaysia seperti aku menyambut kehadiran HARI MALAYSIA dengan sepenuh hati, aku percaya Kerajaan kita, terutamanya RTM, boleh melakukan sesuatu bagi mengembalikan aspek-aspek ‘kemelayuan’ Persekutuan Tanah Melayu ke dalam kehidupan warga Malaysia. Sebagai permulaan, nama-nama seperti ‘Semenanjung Tanah Melayu’ perlu digunakan semula untuk menggantikan ‘Malaysia Barat’, dan panggilan ‘Hakim Besar Malaya’ perlu digantikan dengan istilah ‘Hakim Besar Semenanjung Tanah Melayu’, memandangkan ‘Malaya’ adalah istilah Inggeris bagi ‘Semenanjung Tanah Melayu’.

Kita tidak mahu ada pihak yang beranggapan bahawa nama-nama seperti  ‘Persekutuan Tanah Melayu’ dan ‘Semenanjung Tanah Melayu’ sudah  tidak wujud lagi, dan hanya boleh ditatapi ‘hikayat’nya di dalam buku-buku sejarah atau di Muzium Negara. Sedangkan nama Persekutuan Tanah Melayu dan ‘negeri-negeri Tanah Melayu’  tercatat dengan jelas di dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan Malaysia. Ini bermakna, ‘negeri-negeri Tanah Melayu’, Persekutuan Tanah Melayu dan Semenanjung Tanah Melayu adalah sebahagian dari kehidupan kita baik dahulu, kini dan selamanya.
