MALAYSIA HEADING FOR SORRY STATE OF AFFIARS, UNLESS????
The recently concluded UMNO General Assembly had sparkled various sensitive and concerned issues for the rakyat of various races to rethink of their stand. Since UMNO had clearly demonstrated that it is only interested in looking at the welfare of its own membership rather than the whole rakyat, since it leads the government, which is formed by the Barisan Nasional, whose membership comprises of various ethnical races living in peace and harmony in Malaysia. The fear that most Malaysians had feared-of for years has finally been revealed. Any reconcilation will likely not going to mend this rift unless this practice of double-standards is totally abolished immediately. The rakyat is not going to believe any future statements or apology offered and it is likely that it would be shown at the coming polls. The UMNOputras had failed to appreciate the contributions of these rakyat who are not members of UMNO, who had continuously voted for the Barisan Nasional government.
The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who is also UMNO President, had announced an allocation of RM 3 Million each to every UMNO Division leader in the country, who is responsible for carrying out beneficial projects for their own community while neglecting that these funds are public funds and should be used responsibly for the welfare of all Malaysians irrespective of their political affiliation. Just trying to buy their 'gab' in this manner is going to cost his leadership to collapse since he is currently faced with a major crisis from his predecessor Tun Dr Mahathir, demanding for his immediate resignation for his incompetency and mismanagement of the country.
Various sensitive remarks had been levelled against the other communities in Malaysia by its leaders and delegates although there are laws to punish the wrongdoers who incite them. UMNO General Assembly does not enjoy any immunity and every statement that contravenes the laws of Malaysia are punishable and the government of the day need to adhere to it. The UMNO Youth leader Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who is also Education Minister had unsheathed in public a 'keris', intimidating and inciting hatred against the other communities for raising various issues like NEP figures, hitting out against the MCA youth leadership who had brought out the matters raised by the UMNO deputy Youth leader Khairy Jamaluddin that the chinese community will take a upper-hand if the malays were weak and so forth. But until now, nothing has taken place. When a MCA leader and Deputy Higher Education Minister made a remarked as regards to the hanky-panky of the Education Ministry on the renovations of schools, immediate action was taken by the government to reprimand this leader. When a MIC leader and Deputy Minister brought out the issue of medical studies in Ukraine, he was suspended for a certain period of his duties for inciting sensitivitness.
Not fearing any detriment, UMNO delegates took the stand to hit out against the the public who had demanded answers to conflicting reports, which was meant to ensure that the country is well-managed which will benefit the rakyat on the whole. This selfish attitude cultivated by these UMNOputras will hinder nation building. A delegate had even used a familiar rhetoric of blood and belonging to attack the counter attacks that had discussed on the special privileges enjoyed by the malays.
The malays have to realise that although they represent a large population but according to economic contribution, the non-malays are greater contributors of revenue to the country. The malays just seem to be enjoying benefits for such a long period of time and until now have been unable to effectively contribute economically and seems just to be rely on 'handouts'. Currently, since Malaysia is an oil exporter, the country enjoys oil wealth which could shoulder these causes and if the malays continue to be dependent and fail to stand on their own two feet, once this oil is depleted, the malays are going to face a massive delimma.
The original Constitution formulated in 1957 had enshined to give every citizen freedom and since then, clauses have been amended many times just to give clout to the malays position by the ruling government headed by UMNO. Now there have been calls that every citizen need to adhere to them which their forefathers have agreed upon. Its true that we need to make changes that will benefit the whole rakyat but giving a upper-hand to one community is something, that needs a review since it cannot exist for long. The malays have to clearly understand this and make a quick change, if not they will face the same faith as previously but this time no one will be there to offer any assistance.
Although the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had spoken on a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religious society but this message seem to be not to be understood by the leaders and delegates of UMNO. Just to create a political platform were the ambitions of these leaders and if they had breached the law, they need to receive their punishment. No one is above the law.
If these trend continues, Barisan Nasional will eventual be voted out of power in the coming polls.
What will happen to all this BIG TALK and BIG TALKERS?
Who is going to HELP!!!
