Demi Negara ! For The Nation !

30 09 2009
Melentur buluh biarlah dari rebungnya”, says a Malay proverb. Where else to start to build a strong nation if it is not the schools where the young minds are being moulded?KijangMas Perkasa, the Demi Negara blog owner, is one of the patriots who wrote blog articles, many on socio-politics subjects. The theme revolves around nation building.

Now, have a thermal flask of hot coffee or tea, with some tidbits. Pour a cup, sit back and relax. Take your time to read his masterpiece here, “Racial Polarisation and the Forging of Bangsa Malaysia”. You will need a good 20-minute reading.

Done?

Your coffee is cold already and you have not even touched your tidbits!

KijangMas Perkasa’s masterpiece above and this article about vernacular schools here, have inspired the Demi Negara Community to conceive and finally gave birth to this very own “Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS)” website you are now reading. Read how it started here. Read also how Wee Ka Siong, the Deputy Minister of Education himself, in the capacity of Pemuda MCA, threatened to lodge a police report against the promoters of SSS. He did not even know the word “gejala” that he objected to has more than one meaning. Well, he met his match, here.

KijangMas Perkasa wrote this about SSS:-

Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua is the catalyst of this journey towards meaningful, cohesive nationhood, a key component of the blueprint of a raceless Malaysia that has been vigorously expounded in Demi Negara.”

Pour another cup and go on to read more of his blog articles. Come back another day to finish them and don’t forget your hot coffee or tea and your favorite tidbits. In the interest of nation building, and how some “Malaysians” live their lives which may jeopardize the efforts in building this nation, you may want to read these further:-

–          The National Language is being undermined, here and here. And what happened after much instigations?

–          Utterly Anti-National!

–          Aidil Fitri’s Open House is still ongoing. Thank God! So far, so good! Hope there is no more of these freaking manners!

–          Who is RPK ?

–          Malaysian Insider’s propaganda

–          A plain conversation in our daily life of “kau tim” culture which may eventually destroy a nation.

–          Religion and politics have not been spared too!

–          So you like politics, huh? With an episode of maid abused?

–          1-Malaysia?

Let us ponder now on KijangMas Perkasa’s latest posting. It will just take a minute or two of your time, but it will leave you pondering long enough to realize what makes you a true Malaysian.

You really a MALAYSIAN ka ?

Read this, understand this and recite this over and over. May we all be true Warga Negara Malaysia:-

Di mana kaki berpijak di situ langit dijunjung

Bak kata pepatah Melayu, “Melentur buluh biarlah dari rebungnya”. Di mana lagi kita hendak mulakan usaha-usaha membina sebuah Negara yang kukuh lagi bersatupadu jika tidak sejak dari bangku sekolah lagi, iaitu di mana pemikiran anak-anak kita mula dibentuk?KijangMas Perkasa, citrawan laman citra Demi Negara, adalah salah seorang Wira Negara yang menulis banyak artikel-artikel  mengenai sosio-politik. Tema penulisan beliau berkisar ke arah usaha-usaha membina Negara.

Sekarang mari kita sediakan sebuah bekas untuk mengisi kopi ataupun teh panas, serta sedikit makanan ringan. Tuangkan secawan, mari kita duduk dan bersantai. Kita luangkan sedikit masa untuk membaca sebuah tulisan ulung beliau ini, “Polarisasi Kaum dan Pembentukan Bangsa Malaysia”. Anda memerlukan sekurang-kurangnya 20 minit untuk membacanya.

Habis membacanya?

Kopi anda telah sejuk dan anda belum pun lagi menyentuh makanan ringan anda!

Tulisan ulung KijangMas Perkasa di atas dan juga artikel berkenaan sekolah-sekolah vernakular ini, telah mengilhamkan komuniti Demi Negara untuk mencerna dan akhirnya melahirkan laman citra “Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS)” yang sedang anda baca sekarang ini. Bagaimana SSS bermula. Bacalah juga bagaimana Wee Ka Siong, Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran sendiri, di atas kedudukannya sebagai Ketua Pemuda MCA, telah mengancam untuk membuat laporan polis terhadap penganjur SSS. Beliau tidak pun tahu akan makna dan penggunaan perkataan “gejala” yang disangkalnya. Akhirnya, beliau telah menemui lawannya di sini.

Mengenai SSS, KijangMas Perkasa menulis (dialih bahasa):-

“Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua merupakan satu pencetus dalam perjuangan untuk membentuk sebuah Negara bersatupadu yang penuh bermakna. Ianya merupakan suatu komponen asas kepada “blueprint” bagi menyediakan sebuah masyarakat Malaysia tanpa perasaan perkauman, yang sentiasa diperjuangkan dengan gigih di laman citra Demi Negara”

“Minta lagi kopi sêcewãn!” dan mari kita terus membaca artikel-artikel beliau di laman citra tersebut. Kita luangkan lagi hari-hari selepas ini untuk menyudah membaca, tetapi jangan lupa secangkir kopi/teh panas beserta makanan ringan kegemaran anda.

Demi semangat membina Negara, dan juga untuk menyelami bagaimana sebahagian dari yang dikatakan “rakyat Malaysia” telah menjalani kehidupan seharian mereka, anda mungkin berminat untuk selanjutnya membaca seperti yang berikut:-

–          Bahasa kebangsaan telah diperkotak-katikkan. Baca di sini and di sini. Dan apa yang berlaku selepas perlakuan yang mencetuskan perasaan tidak senang hati itu?

–          Sememangnya Anti-Nasional!

–          Rumah Terbuka Aidil Fitri masih berlangsung. Syukur kerana setakat ini belum berlaku perkara-perkara yang tidak beradap ini.

–          Siapa dia RPK ?

–          Propaganda Malaysian Insider

–          Perbualan biasa kita seharian mengenai budaya “kau tim”  yang sebenarnya boleh menghancurkan sebuah Negara sekiranya tidak dibendung dan diambil perhatian.

–          Agama and politik juga tidak terlepas dari dipergunakan!

–          Jadi anda suka kepada politik? Dengan sebuah episod  penganiayaan pembantu rumah ?

–          1-Malaysia?

Mari kita renungi muatan terkini dari KijangMas Perkasa di laman citra Demi Negara beliau. Ia hanya mengambil masa barang seminit dua untuk membacanya tetapi anda mungkin akan mengambil masa yang agak lama untuk menjawab persoalan tentang apakah yang membuatkan seseorang itu dikenali sebagai seorang warga negara Malaysia yang tulen.

Betulkah anda seorang warga Malaysia?

Baca pepatah ini, fahaminya dan lakukan berulang-ulang kali untuk menghayatinya. Semoga kita menjadi Warga Negara Malaysia yang sejati:-

Di mana kaki berpijak di situ langit dijunjung

heh! heh! heh! Sure KijangMas ni kena label racist oleh kaum-kaum yang ultra racist dan kaum-kaum yang sesat dibumi asing! heh! heh!

Baru dok browse artikel-artikel KijangMas, ingat nak start baca artikel polarisasi kaum dulu, tapi terlekat kat artikel pasal BUDAYA JELEK kau-tim tu! Nak petik sket tulisan KijangMas dlm artikel kau-tim tu:-

“(Robin) …. has never uttered a proper word of Bahasa Malaysia in all the years I’ve known him, although I know he is sufficiently conversant in our national language…..”

Walau weh! orang china sesat kat Malaysia! Segan nak cakap bahasa Kebangsaan!! Tiu na sing!!! Lu balik tongsang la!!!

…Robin told me that the Chinese are victimised by the (Malay) police, with regular RM50 kopi money expropriated from them at every opportunity. He went on and on about these injustice and parasitic affliction reflective of the Malay “tongkat” culture…

Kurang ajar sungguh apek tongsang ni!! Tapi tak per. Si Robin ni telah ditelanjangkan bulat-bulat oleh KijangMas dalam hal ini!. BACA DI SINI. Cina kena victim konon! padahal dia sendiri yang buat sial! Tapi kebanyakan yang melalak, melolong mcm anjing kat Malaysia ni, memang gitulah perangainya.

Dah lah ! Buat sakit hati aja bicara pasal cina tongsang yang tak sedar diri ni. Nak luang masa baca Polarisasi kaum lak!

Has any one studied how much corruption has contributed towards the racial polarisation in the country? Remember, corruption is not just the giving and taking of bribes.

Corruption was relatively unknown among the leaders of the major communities at the time of Merdeka. But when they allowed vernacular schools, what were they thinking? Was it plain naivete, convenience, thinking that the problems it could bring can be solved to morrow, or was there an element of corrupt minds thinking I must have as many votes as possible at the next elections and say let it be.

Is it not the same situation to day?

Zen,

We are not aware of any studies done on corruption vis a vis racial polarisation. Transparency International Malaysia periodically does surveys on corruption perception among the public and publishes their assessment of perception based on an index determined by them. The perception has been worsening in recent times.

True, corruption is not just the offering and accepting of bribes and there is such a thing as “corrupt mentality”. Wanting and giving favours not in kind can also constitute corruption even though it may not fall under the legal definition of the word.

Perhaps our leaders at Merdeka were so exited at the prospect and the aura of being independent from the British that they shook hands more than asked questions. However, now 52 years after Merdeka and racially divided, our present leaders must seriously think about the implications of the present “three systems of education”, place priority on the need for national unity rather than on vote-getting strategies, policies and actions.

With courage and a changed priority, they can begin, quite simply, by appointing an independent Study Team to conduct an in-depth study of the existing education system(s). The implementation of whatever recommended can be considered later.

SYK,

Yes, corruption can make people angry. But you need to substantiate or find facts to support your statements. How do you know the millionaires, corrupt or whatever, don’t do much work? How do you know Malay politicians take more “corrupt” money than others?

True, Chinese make a lot of money from business all this while. But, do you know that for a long time before Malays went into business in big numbers, there was corruption, too? Do you know who did the corrupting all those years.

Support SSS and get your friends to do so, too. With one schooling system it would be easier to inculcate or put in good ideas and values to school children and hope less corruption will be the result.

Why are you talking about doing the study and implementation can be “considered later”? Would that not lead to a futile exercise and money down the drain if a Study is done and the recommendations not acted upon later?

It’s long overdue and each day so much vitriol is poured on the Internet and elsewhere on members of one community or the other – the political parties, the private organisations, the free lancing individuals. People not even accepting the word “pendatang”, accusations of lack of loyalty, insinuations of being second class citizens, making demands for compensation from the British for their colonial past, making fun of Negara Ku and so on. Very many of us don’t even know what is written in the vernacular languages.

isa,

of course the opponents of SSS are doing kung fu, selambam, etc trying to side-step and confuse the issue and continue to deny that the vernacular schools are the root of the problem. i think they have better chance doing that if the whole SSS shebang is forced to them.

if i remember correctly the SSS proposal calls for an objective study to be done by local and foreign panel of experts to improve our education system. the 3school system is such a ridiculous system that’s probably happening only in malaysia and i believe SSS has a strong case that the panel of experts cannot but produce stark facts and figures to justify it – that SSS need to be implemented yesterday. in light of facts and figures SSS opponent will be standing on thin ice.

I believe there’s a silent majority of all races who supports SSS and they need to be awakened. the study will surely socialize the issue and wake them up from their slumber and faced with stark facts and figure that they have been short-changed all this years in terms of unity, harmony and all the good stuff in the 3school system, they will be clamoring to lend their voice to the SSS cause.

this is what is needed for things to snowball to a situation where it is not politically correct not to implement SSS.

just my 2 sen worth.

4 10 2009
SSS Admin

wah-al-subangi,

Your views are definitely worth more than 2 sen. Seriously.

They cannot deny that vernacular schools contribute significantly to the increasing racial polarisation in the country to day. How many of the products of those schools are conversant with BM after finishing school? We are not aware of any studies having been done, but we believe very many.

The Deputy Education Minister himself revealed in 2008 that about 25% of SJKC pupils dorpped out. They are hardly able to communicate in BM. They end up with jobs as Sales Assistants, Workshop Assistants and the like. Just look around and see who they go about with at work and at leisure. Speak to a few of them and see if they can speak BM sufficiently as Malaysian citizens. Can the spirit of goodwill and sense of togetherness be fostered and nurtured with these young people?

One problem is that their politicians are trying to win their votes by playing the tune of Mandarin as a part of Chinese culture. As far as language is concerned, when that language is not spoken “habitually” (not even at home where they speak various dialects), can it be called culture? Mandarin is used only one third of the time every working day, not spoken during week-ends and holidays.

Mandarin is the official language of Mainland China. Even the Chinese in China don’t speak Mandarin “habitually” other than in government offices and perhaps firms employing Chinese using different dialects. There’s just no excuse not to have SSS which speaks for the learning of Mandarin and Tamil as elective subjects.

Isa,

We regret having missed replying to you earlier. We hope you would not look at it as lacking in answers.

We believe that, in order to be thorough, the Study Team, which should be independent and comprising of experts, would take considerable time to study, investigate, get feedback, hear all views, consider and make recommendations. It may take 1-2 years.

As their report and recommendations are expected to also be thorough, we imagine the Government would, in turn, want to take time to study the report and recommendations. We recognise that the Government would want to consider the political implications and choose a suitable time to accept and implement the recommendations made. Hence we say the Study should be commissioned first and the implementation of the recommendations be considered later.

We agree with you that SSS is long overdue but we need to be realistic. Let us go through the process, get things done in a democratic way. Let us keep on urging the Government to commence the Study and put paid to all the various allegations one way or another in respect of the defects and deficiencies of the current education system, and on issues of loyalty, sense of togetherness, spirit of belonging to the country we live in and are citizen of.

Instead of bitching and complaining about these ungrateful immigrant bastards anonymously online, we should all start being vocal about it in our day to day lives. If an immigrant bumps into you on the TTC say “Hey do you speak english? Do you know the words excuse me? WELL F*CKIN’ USE THEM NEXT TIME!!!!!”

The question:-

How many of us claimed to be Malaysian, yet do not speak Bahasa Kebangsaan ? or CANT even speak the language?

Yes, the Canadian newspaper article spoke about “Chong, a dentist, public servant and former politician, noted members of the city’s Chinese community can live, work, shop, read, play and obtain social services in what amount to voluntary Chinese ghettoes, sprinkled throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

‘Unilingual Chinese-speaking immigrants can survive without stepping outside these communities,’ Chong noted”. He wanted them to get out of their cocooned existence and be among the Canadian society at large.

Yes, we should have in Malaysia that kind of educated, responsible citizen like Chong of Canada to speak up for the good of their country of adoption. Non-Malays have to accept that this is their country of adoption and should not object to being called “pendatang”. The Malays were here over 2,000 years ago; the Orang Aslis are also of the Malay stock, referred to by anthropologists as “Proto-Malays” whereas the later Malays are called “Deutro-Malays”. The non-Malays came and were not citizens, in fact stateless, until after Merdeka.

Living by themselves with hardly any interaction with members of other communities, speaking only their own language, etc, make the non-Malays here appear like living in ghettos like that Chong spoke about. Here is the SSS Proposal for their children at least to mix freely and be together with members of other communities in a one-school-for-all system. We should hear more, in fact, we can challenge the educated and responsible non-Malays to speak up like Chong above and promote the SSS concept. We are proud of the fact that a few have spoken here in this very Kempen SSS portal. Hopefully more will do so.

Dear Sir,

Those who came here from faraway lands, no matter where, and have younger generations here, are Malaysians, provided that:-

1. They live their life (or at least try to the best) by Rukun Negara & Perlembagaan

2. They respect Malaysia and they uphold the National Language of Malaysia, both speaking, writing in everyday lives. This does not mean to forgo their ancestral language, culture etc but in public, there is only Malaysia. They can have their roots as long as it is done privately.

3. They respect the freedom of religion. As Islam is the Official religion of the country, be respectful when it touches pigs, beer, etc and dont display blatant disrespect!

4. This is Malaysia! Period! Not China or Tamil Naidu!

So dont blame people when you behave like pendatangs and been labelled as such!

Semerah Padi,

Citizenship means respect for and living by the Constitution the moment we get that citizenship or get born as citizens. The Constitution is the highest laws of the land and all other laws come from it. No law, by-law, rule or regulation can be valid if it contradicts any part of the Constitution; it becomes ultra virus. Such is the strength and the dominant power of the Constitution that, indeed, it is a sign of disloyalty if one does not respect and live by it.

The Rukun Negara is derived from the principles enunciated in the Constitution and should therefore also be respected and lived by.

We hope all Malaysians would do so. The SSS is designed to create an environment whereby all children can in their formative years learn and be guided to live with those principles.

I support all the views concerning respect for and living by the Constitution stated above. The Mainland Chinese shoot their nationals for corruption, let alone not respecting their constitution.

Those having Malaysian citizenship to denote the country we belong must show our sense of belonging. It is not just a piece of paper to get a passport when going overseas. It definitely is not a passport to be torn in front of British Immigration officers, saying, “I’m now stateless, please give me permanent stay in England” – like some of the 500 who were refused and demonstrated in London a few months ago.

We have to respect what our forefathers agreed at Merdeka. Otherwise counter-actions may ensue and the entire fabric of Malaysian society may break down, leading to a state of anarchy.

Wan,

Thank you for your views. It’s comforting to know they come from you.

Respecting and living by the Constitution is the minimum requirement of all citizens. Even non-citizens are required to respect the Constitution of our country until and unless they decide to leave our shores like expatriates and foreign businessmen or those disloyal Malaysians who tore their passports and got stranded in England.

Indeed, respecting and living by the Constitution is the minimum proof of loyalty to the country. The Constitution is the basis of the existence of all independent countries. It should also be the basis of existence of all citizens of any country. It is the highest set of laws of the country and all other laws derived from it. No citizen can be regarded loyal if he/she does not respect or live by those laws of the country.

Dear Admin,

Apabila seseorang yang bergelar “rakyat Malaysia” menunjukkan ciri-ciri yang agak tidak sehaluan dengan Rukun serta Perlembagaan Negara, saya agak tertanya-tanya “MENGAPA”?

Apakah Rukun & Perlembagaan itu tidak sesuai dengan negara serta rakyat di sini? Apakah ianya tidak dapat diterima sekarang? Pernahkan terdengar suara-suara rakyat Malaysia ke arah ini?

Atau kita semua telah terkeliru dek kerana tidak lagi mengambil berat terhadap Rukun & Perlembagaan Negara tersebut? Kita telah jadikan ianya seolah-olah barang perhiasan di dalam almari. Saya terfikir begini kerana melihat gelagat-gelagat pemimpin kita.

DS Najib – jujurkah beliau dalam meletakkan Bahasa Kebangsaan di tempat yang sepatutnya sepertimana kehendak Perlembagaan dan Akta Bahasa?

TS Muhyiddin – adakah beliau mempunyai “politically will” (maaf, “kejantanan”) untuk mewujudkan hanya satu aliran persekolahan kebangsaan dengan tidak membiarkan perpaduan rakyat dicemari oleh SRJKs?

Tiada so’al Perlembagaan dan Rukun Negara kita tidak sesuai. Perlembagan negara kita telah di rangka berdasarkan persetujuan di antara pemimpin kaum kaum terbesar di negara ini. Rukun Negara berpandukan kapada Perlembagaan negara.

Juga, kami fikir, tiada so’al kekeliruan. Ha nya so’al mahu tidak mahu di antara rakyat dan sejauh mana kesanggupan Kerajaan mengejar tujuan tujuan yang di bayangkan di peruntukan peruntukan di dalam Perlembagaan itu, termasuk berkenaan kedudukan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Resmi/ Bahasa Kebangsaan negara.

Yang menjadi tanda tanya ia lah kata kata saperti, “The days when the Government knows best are over” dan “The wishes of the majority must be followed”. Kedua dua ungkapan itu menimbulkan so’al bukankah Kerajaan dan pemimpin “memimpin” rakyat? Bukan kah Kerajaan menunjukkan haluan dan memberi keterangan keterangan sapenuh nya, ha nya salepas itu bahru “follow the will of the majority”?

Yang lagi memuskhilkan ia lah beberapa isu yang timbul bukan lah “the will of the majority”. Belom ada bukti nya Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS) di terima atau tidak oleh rakyat. Kami berpendapat bahawa ada “silent majority” yang mahukan nya. Memang perlu “political will” atau keazaman politik yang kuat bagi mengadakan SSS. Tetapi, kami fikir, membuat pengkajian bagi mengtahui baik buruk nya, kekuatan dan kelemahan sistem pelajaran yang ada sekarang ini bukan lah isu yang sebegitu besar.

(http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2009/10/7/focus/4853807&sec=focus)

“They may create a civil war by attacking one particular race and hoping the attacked race would retaliate thinking these attackers are locals. They probably know how fragile our race relationship is.

Our race relationship is that FRAGILE !!! At least that’s how a neighbour sees it!

Kenn,

Past writings would show that the last time Malaysia came to blows with Indonesia was during “Confrontasi” when Sukarno wanted to “crush Malaysia” which was formed with British suppport. But at that time Indonesia was in a mess economically and stories of Indonesians “makan jagong” for lack of rice abounded. Sukarno was facing a lot of problems at home and wanted a foreign venture to divert the minds of his people from the problems within.

But now Indonesia is doing well economically. The Indonesian leadership appears solid, the President is a very responsible politician and won a resounding victory during the recent elections. Only 1-2 irresponsible politicians who are exploiting Malaysia-Indonesia relations but our authorities are alert, taking precautionary measures.

The question is: would more Malaysians of non-Malay stock join in any fight with other countries should it occur in the future? That would be a clear expression of loyalty and love of country. The SSS is aimed at bringing about a sense of togetherness and belonging, of being together come hell or high water. Let’s do what we can for the SSS to come into realty so that the Bangsa Malaysia that evolves will produce more Malaysians willing and volunteering to fight for king and country.

Ini lah kisah nya bila, mengikut Tun Dr Mahathir, Dato Seri Najib perlu berkompromi, akibat flip-flop Tun Abdullah Badawi memberi peluang kapada rakyat bercakap hampir apa apa sahaja.

Nampak nya masih berlaku sekarang. Betul, “follow the will of the majority”. Tapi pemimpin tidak memimpin ke? 1Malaysia melayan komen dalam bahasa lain. Tidak hormat kapada Bahasa Kebangsaan ke? Di mana kedudukan BM sekarang? Siapa yang majoriti di negara ini? Kenapa kompromi begitu sekali?

Dato Seri Najib berkata, “The days the Government knows best are over” dan dia mengajak rakyat memberi komen di blog 1Malaysia nya. Beberapa pihak telah mula mengambil kesempatan mengeluarkan bermacam kritik, menimbulkan isu isu yang di bendong Akta Hasutan sejak pentadbiran “auto pilot” Tun Abdullah lagi. Kebelakangan ini mereka sampai ke tahap menyo’al Artikel 153 Perlembagaan negara, yang sensitif kapada kaum Melayu. Sudah menjadi keterlaluan.

Berkompromi ada had nya. Bahasa Kebangsaan nyata di sebut di Artikel 152 Perlembagaan negara. Memang tiada siapa boleh menghalang pengunaan bahasa lain kecuali di dalam urusan resmi. Tetapi kami percaya blog 1Malaysia nya ada lah urusan resmi. Kami tidak faham mengapa dia membenarkan Bahasa Mandarin dan Tamil di blog tersebut.

Kami percaya majoriti yang senyap (silent majority) mahukan Bahasa Kebangsaan di agongkan, di beri tempat yang sepatut nya, mengikut Perlembagaan negara. Dengan menggalakkan pengunaan Mandarin dan Tamil, mesti ada kaum majoriti yang rasa tidak senang hati. Mandarin ada lah bahasa kebangsaan negeri Cina komunis dan bukan bahasa ibunda kaum Cina di Malaysia pun. Tamil ada lah bahasa kebangsaan Tamil Nadu, India. Penggalakan penggunaan nya memang tidak sejajar dengan semangat saling menghormati di antara kaum yang kita mahukan.

Mari lah kita merayu kapada Dato Seri Najib supaya sentiasa sedarkan had kompromi itu dan memandang positif kapada Cadangan SSS ini.

Semerah Padi,

Memang tidak ada sebab yang munasabah kaum Cina tidak mahu terima gelaran “pendatang”. Penjelasan KijangMs di Demi Negara ada lah menyeluruh dan merangkumi fakta fakta sejarah yang di terima pakar akademik.

Sejarah menunjukkan bahawa Melayu sudah mendudukki Tanah Melayu ini dengan tamadun sistem Kerajaan sejak abad ke 2. Langkasuka ada lah bukti nya.

Rekod rekod sejarah yang ada di negeri Cina sendiri memperakui bahawa Langkasuka telah terbina di Abad ke 2. Penulisan penulisan purba Cina, saperti “Liang-shu” banyak menyebut Langkasuka. Penulisan itu mencatitkan perhubungan Langkasuka dengan negeri Cina. Langkasuka menjadi suatu perhentian dalam perjalanan penganut penagut Buddha menziarah tempat lahir Buddha di India (Buddhism telah merebak ke negeri Cina dari India). Di antara mereka yang menulis pengalaman dan pemandangan mereka di masa perjalanan ke India dan balik itu, ada yang mencatit bahawa Langkasuka telah di tubuhkan seawal awal nya di Abad ke 2. (Lihat rencana “Trade Routes and Trade Centres”, karangan Dr John Miksic, National University of Singapore, di dalam “The Encyclopedia of Malaysia, Early History, di edit oleh Prof. Dato’ Dr Nik Hassan Shuhaimi Nik Abdul Rahman).

Kesemua rekod sejarah itu masih ada di negeri Cina dan di guna ahli sejarah membuat pengkajian sejarah, termasuk sejarah negara ini. Mereka yang tidak bersetuju dengan gelaran “pendatang” dan mungkin masih muskhil dengan penulisan tersebut di atas, boleh membaca rekod catitan lebih 1,000 tahun itu di People’s Republic of China. Rekod itu sah, sahih dan tulin.

Dengan menerima hakikat bahawa bukan Melayu ada lah kaum “pendatang”, mereka juga perlu menerima kedudukan Bahasa Melayu dan lain lain perkara yang, walhal, telah termaktub di Perlembagaan negara.

SYK sir,
Constitution and the Rukun plays important role in building this nation. Based on these pillars, it will be easier to move forward, based on understanding on basic things.

And my dear friend.. by way of you mentioning about these people talk a lot about constitution and rukun, you seems to less care about it..

If so, can you provide a case where no basic consititution and rukun is needed elsewhere and that country prosper and in peace..

Please do sir…

SYK,

Respect for and living by the Constitution and the Rukun Negara is not negotiable. It is not a commodity, not an item of trade. Citizenship is also not tradeable and you simply cannot say, “Give me what I want and I’ll give the country what it wants”.

You can ask any one who has a fairly good education and who mixes around with others, not just with their own kind. They will tell you to respect and live by the Constitution and the Rukun Negara even if you don’t get what you want. You need to mix around with others, people with good education, broad thinking and the proper perspective.

Good education is not just speaking good Malay, although in many places in Malaysia, where qualifications are about the same, bosses are inclined to offer jobs to the ones who speak Malay well.

Our sincere advice to you is: change your thinking and your attitude so that the apparent feeling of dissatisfaction, anger, and what you think is injustice and unfairness (which apparently is not true) will not make you unhappy throughout your life. Widen your circle of friends and contacts, and have a reasonably happy life.

SYK,

By just speaking good Malay, you think it is a ticket to get good job? You only speak Bahasa Malaysia just in order to get a job?

Many Bangladeshis, Pakistanis. etc who came here to work speak by far much better Bahasa Malaysia (and they did it within a month or two!) than the locals, born here, who claimed to be Malaysians. Some of these so-called malaysians cant even utter comprehensible Bahasa Malaysia!

Yeah, these pseudo-malaysians hold myKAD, but holding tight to their mother tongues and only speak Bahasa Malaysia, hoping to get a job. Any wonder it’s still hard for them to get the job?

Saya tertarik kepada muatan artikel terbaru Melayu Moden (http://melayumoden.com/) berjudul “Satu Bahasa Satu Negara”. Artikel itu juga bermula dengan grafik yang tertulis “Musnah Bahasa, Punahlah Bangsa.”

Apa yang ingin saya sentuh di sini adalah tulisan Sdr. Hasbullah Pitt yang rujuk di dalam artikel Melayu Moden tersebut yang berbunyi:-

Kini, ramai blogawan tempatan yang memaparkan imej grafik Bangsa Malaysia sebagai satu langkah yang mirip dengan langkah Dr Burhanuddin Al-Helmy 60 tahun yang lalu.

Akan tetapi, kebanyakan blogawan yang mendokong “Bangsa Malaysia” tidak menggunakan Bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa utama. Ada diantara mereka yang mengakui bahawa bahasa pengantar utama Bangsa Malaysia adalah “Bahasa Malaysia” tetapi kandungan blognya tetap Inggeris.

Blogawan ini termasuklah DS Najib sendiri, bukan? walaupun ada berbagai bahasa di blog 1-Malaysia, Bahasa Kedua/Inggeris diletakkan di tempat pertama. Sama juga dengan pemimpin kerajaan, bukan? Cuba lihat kain pemidai apabila ada sesuatu pembukaan rasmi, lebih-lebih acara itu adalah acara berunsur komersil. Cuba lihat EGM MCA semalam. Lihat Bahasa apa yang digunakan? Saya nampak, pertama Bahasa Cina, keduanya bahasa Inggeris. Habis di situ sahaja!

Saya kurang bersetuju dgn Sdr Hasbullah apabila beliau mengatakan blogawan sendiri tidak mengutamakan Bahasa Kebangsaan dalam tulisan mereka. Dalam konteks ini saya memilih portal SSS ini dan juga blog Demi Negara sebagai contoh.

Logiknya, apabila kita hendak mengutarakan sesuatu pendapat, kita perlu memastikan pihak sebelah sana akan faham sebahagian besar mesej kita. Mungkinkah keadaan sekarang amat teruk sehinggakan ramai di kalangan yang bergelar “rakyat Malaysia” tidak dapat menguasai Bahasa Malaysia itu sendiri? Mungkinkah ini sebabnya blogawan seperti Sdr. KijangMas terpaksa menggunakan medium Bahasa Inggeris? Keadaan seperti ini, bagi saya, bukan menunjukkan bahawa blogawan tempatan (terutamanya mereka-mereka yang menulis bab-bab membina negara) tidak mengutamakan Bahasa Kebangsaan. Tetapi apakah hasilnya dengan memberi mesej kepada “orang asing” yang tidak faham Bahasa Malaysia?

Saya setuju dengan Sdr Hasbullah sekiranya tulisan beliau ditujukan kepada blogawan-blogawan tempatan yang menulis bab-bab “santai” yang hanya dimaksudkan kepada rakyat Malaysia sahaja ataupun mereka-mereka yang nemahami Bahasa Malaysia.

Mesej SSS serta KijangMas adalah merupakan suatu “tamparan” kepada mereka-mereka yang mengaku menjadi rakyat Malaysia, tapi tidak faham berbahasa Malaysia (satu contoh yang amat asas kepada isu kenegaraan ini). Mesej SSS dan KijangMas juga tertuju kepada semua orang termasuk juga mereka yang memang sebenarnya bukan rakyat Malaysia tetapi dapat mengambil pengajaran dari tulisan-tulisan blog ini.

Semerah Padi,

Sememang nya patut Bahasa Malaysia juga di gunakan di blog blog yang mendokong kuat Peruntukan 152 Perlembagaan Malaysia berkenaan kedudukan Bahasa Melayu, yang sekarang sudah menjadi Bahasa Malaysia. Pada umum nya, yang penting ia lah kapada siapa pesanan atau mesej yang mahu di sampaikan itu di tujukan. Jika termasuk kapada bukan Melayu, boleh lah Bahasa Inggeris di gunakan. Bahasa Inggeris pun sudah lama menjadi bahasa ke dua di negara ini.

Yang menjadi tanda so’al ia lah mengapa 1Malaysia memperlawa rakyat berhubung dengan nya melalui Bahasa Mandarin dan Tamil. Amat nyata di sebut di dalam Perlembagaan bahawa Bahasa Melayu ada lah Bahasa Resmi. Kami percaya bahawa perhubungan di dalam blog 1Malaysia itu ada lah urusan resmi. Oleh itu perlu lah di dalam Bahasa Resmi, ia itu Bahasa Malaysia yang juga sudah menjadi Bahasa Kebangsaan negara ini. Tidak nampak logik atau justifikasi nya blog itu melayan Bahasa Mandarin dan Tamil.

Kami di Kempen Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS) ini terpegun bila mula mula mendapat berita tersebut. Masih tertanya tanya sebab nya hingga sekarang. Bagaimana pula dengan segala usaha usaha untuk mempertabatkan Bahasa Melayu sehingga sekarang. Kami juga tertanya bagaimana pendapat kumpulan sasterawan dan perwira Bahasa Melayu yang beramai ramai berdemonstrasi menentang PPSMI tidak lama dahulu. Kerajaan telah memenuhi kehendak mereka dengan keputusan PPSM balik kapada Bahasa Malaysia.

Kami berharap Kerajaan akan coba memenuhi kehendak kami saperti di nyatakan di dalam Memo (walau pun masih di peringkat Derap dan di bincangkan sekarang) yang di terterakan di permulaan blog ini. Kami juga berharap kumpulan sasterawan dan perwira Bahasa Melayu yang telah berdemonstrasi dan berjaya mendapat kehendak mereka itu menyokong cadangan kami yang juga berupa mempertabatkan Bahasa Melayu atau Bahasa Resmi atau Bahasa Kebangsaan kita.

Hello SYK, can I say that you are just an opportunist? You (and your friends) speak Malay just to get a job only?

Wahlau, eh ….excuse me, are you a Malaysian? What is the national language of Malaysia? I am pretty sure that your forefathers came to Tanah Melayu by bribing their way through. And then, accused the Malays of being corrupted.

Come on, be honest with yourself. Are your feelings really Malaysian? Don’t you want to be part of the mainstream society? If not, please go somewhere where you feel a sense of belonging, where you can speak your ancestor’s language which happen to be an alien language in Malaysia, where the majority of the people do not even understand it……

Information Minister TSRY, when launching former UMNO Sec Gen TSMR’s book on 12.10.09, said,

“For too long the nation’s people have been split and it is a serious matter and we hope the 1Malaysia concept can bring people together. Lets think as Malaysians, feel as Malaysians and act as Malaysians”.

Can we just ask people to “think as Malaysians, feel as Malaysians and act as Malaysians”? What is the Government doing to get people to do so? Why not think about the SSS Proposal and respond positively?

18 10 2009
SSS Admin

Xavier,

The Information Minister said after the UMNO General Assembly that the UMNO President and Prime Minister has explained his objectives and they serve as a directive to the party and the Government. Hopefully all concerned are now clear about what needs to be done.

However, we hope everybody interprets such statements as “The days the Government knows best are over” in a positive and rational manner. It means the Government wants to listen to the people and decides according to the wishes of the people. On this matter of the SSS, views have been expressed in the mass media on the need for bringing Bahasa Malaysia in line with its role as stated in Article 152 of the Constitution. Views have also been expressed on related issues and some have stated their disagreement on certain aspects of the Proposal.

So, we hope the Government would listen to the views expressed by the people. In order to resolve the issues brought out, the Government should carry out the in-depth study of the education system that has been called for. Done by an independent team of experts, the truthfulness of the various claims made can be verified. The strengths and weaknesses of the existing education system can be identified and analyzed, and recommendations to improve them can be made.

Xavier,

TSRY is the only Minister, I see so far, who speak about being Malaysian. And of course, quite many of a time, he was accused of being Melayu vocal, racist and even “Ketuanan Melayu” also being dragged in.

I dont understand some of the so-called Malaysians. When people talk being Malaysian, they twist and turn and paint very bad picture. You know who these people are. TSRY was talking about being Malaysian not being Melayu. They even dont want “Malaysian” is it? What? They want mini Kwantung, mini Hainan (mini Communist China), mini Tamil Naidu, mini Kerala (mini India) in this country?

Or these people have “subversive” agenda hidden behind their backs?

Wonder whether those who tore their Malaysian passports, were refused permanent stay, became stateless and got stranded in Britain were products of vernacular schools. I suppose Penang would have SJKC up to even secondary level.

The absconding architect quoted in the news report must not have been a successful one. Penang being a majority Chinese city, he could have got a lot of business there. Maybe he and the others didn’t mix much, limited social contacts, struggled for existence and went to where they thought the grass was greener.

If they were successful and have a lot of money, they would have tried to go to Australia. But Australia with their “White Australia” policy put up very stringent rules, proof of funds etc, for permanent stay there. The fact that the Architect and the others stranded in London end up washing dishes suggests that they were frustrated, unsuccessful and unpatriotic fellows. No wonder even the British don’t want them.

Zen,

Thank you for your comment. We see this subject being discussed in a number of blogs after being reported and commented upon in the national news media.

It is highly possible that many of those who ran away to Britain tearing up their Malaysian passports are products of vernacular schools. They definitely thought that the grass is greener there and decided to forgo their citizenship.

What we are very concerned about is those who are still in this country but clinging to Mandarin and Tamil as media of instruction, resulting in seclusion of children in our schools. We must have a 1School (SSS) system that can provide the environment of togetherness, a sense of belonging to one another and to the country we live in.

We must have SSS that teaches the history of our country as a compulsory subject so that children will grow up knowing and remembering the contributions of each community and the circumstances of our gaining independence from the British and of the framing of the Constitution of our country. That way we can expect better understanding, mutual respect and harmony among Malaysians.

We cannot afford to continue being divided for the sake of lasting peace and uninterrupted progress. We cannot get that if we continue our separate ways. The slogan “unity in diversity” is a contradiction in terms. Pro-unity civic organisations and various activities aimed at uniting the people, including Rukun Tetangga etc, have left us still increasingly polarised now. Let us urge the Government and the political leaders to study the SSS Proposal and do an in-depth study of the existing education system.

Why you often say bad about vernacular schools? The national schools are not that good also.

I know of a sekolah kebangsaan where the boys scratch and even puncture tyres of discipline teachers, smoke cigarettes and god knows what in the field behind the school, the scout master did not even visit the boys camping overnight saying “I’ll see you from the school balcony”, many boys belong to Line this and Line that gang, have gang fights, a few leave home in school uniform but don’t show up in school, the Parent Teachers Association is headed by an ex-Army Sergeant or Officer, and the parent and teachers cannot do anything about those.

Make the sekolah kebangsaan good lah. Then people have faith in national schools.

Dear Indra,

We do not feel that we said anything bad about vernacular schools. All we are saying is that vernacular schools are “un-malaysian”. The schools have foreign languages as teaching media and do not respect the Constitution of Malaysia and Language Act, to be the least (in this respect same goes to the government leaders, PM and Minister of Education as well).

Vernacular schools breed un-malaysian and more likely unpatriotic pupils. We doubt that there much importance being stressed upon in vernacular schools when it comes to the subject of being truly Malaysian, putting Bahasa Kebangsaan first before others, knowing the history of Malaysia etc. In Lembah Klang, it seems almost all vernacular schools have “one-eyed” objective, that is for the pupil to get as much “A”s, to the level of discounting everything other that need to be instilled to the pupils so that they become a worthy “warganegara” much later in their lives.

Yes, there are cases of indiscipline among pupils in SK. Without you mentioning it, almost all Malaysians are aware of that. But let us look at YOU when you are making that “indisciplined” statement:-

– Are you saying that SRJK dont have these problem too?

– when making the allegations, did you consider the numbers of SK versus the number of SRJK? Please bear in mind too that SK existed because it is a national agenda, not only in Malaysia, but also in all other countries in the world. SRJK existed because the Indians & Chinese wanting their separate ways, separate from the rest of us, Malaysians in this land called Malaysia.

– Isn’t SSS campaign here urging the government to re-visit the education system/policy, study it in-depth and revamp it if found necessary so that Malaysia, years later, will be taken care by “anak watan”, who are more patriotic, love Malaysia more than any other country in this world etc..etc.. Isn’t it was mentioned that SSS campaign was also pointing to the need to have a better system/policy to address the shortcomings of SK like teachings, discipline etc, all in all to make SK, THE school for ALL?

So by our explanation above, do you still think that “We are saying bad things about vernacular schools”, or is it you are the one who like to say bad things about SK when things dont come your way?

We are trying to do things here for Malaysians, all Malaysians. We are not just trying to do things for SK only (like you are trying to argue for vernacular school by bad-mouthing the SK).

As Wan mentioned below, we dont want people who were born in this country, claim to be Malaysian, went abroad and very ungratefully and unpatriotically tore the Malaysian passports.

Thank you for dropping by.

There is the view that Mandarin is Chinese culture. That the Constitution allows the study and use of mother tongues. That cultural practices of other communities should not be hampered. That in pursuing national interest, the people’s interest should also be looked after.

I know some people have said Mandarin is spoken less than a third of the time daily even in Mainland China. Malaysian Chinese say it is important to know Mandarin to do business in China. China is now going to become the second largest economy in the world. Malaysia wants trade with outside world for foreign exchange.

Can we discuss these?

20 10 2009
SSS Admin

Wan,

Thank you for visiting and offering to discuss. We wish there are more Malaysians like you who prefer to discuss in a civil manner, instead of hurling accusations or going to the streets airing their views militantly. The latter serves no purpose and may bring in Police water canons.

Yes, people have indeed asked whether Mandarin is a part of Chinese culture when it is spoken less than a third of the time in the daily life of the Chinese, even in Mainland China. Of course, there are aspects of life that are not practised even daily but become a part of culture. But, as has been stated elsewhere, according to sociologists, as far as language is concerned, it is culture when it is “habitually spoken” by the community at every instance people open their mouths to communicate with one another. However, mother tongues are definitely culture.

True, the Constitution allows the use of mother tongues. The SSS Proposal never seeks to prevent or hamper that. It merely asks that all schools in the country use Bahasa Malaysia as the medium of instruction, not Mandarin and Tamil. By all means study Mandarin for the purpose of doing business in China, etc. But study it as an elective subject, not by way of a medium of instruction in schools.

True, that the cultural practices of the communities should not be hampered and SSS never speaks anything that encroach upon the cultural practices of everybody in this country. What the SSS promoters ask is that the non-Malays respect the ways of the Malays because the Malays were the first to occupy this land, became the Tuan Tanah and the Tuan Rumah. This land has in fact been known as Semenanjong Tanah Melayu and, when the British came as Colonists, they also referred to it as so and created the political entity called Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. Therefore, it is only logical and reasonable for the Malays to expect that when visitors come, they, for example, do not wear shoes in their houses or sit on chairs cross-legged, or the sole pointed to the host.

Looking after people’s (we assume you mean the rakyat) interest is politics. The 1Malaysia concept has the slogan “People first”. We support that. But we strongly believe and hope that the interest of the majority be given priority. In all aspects of life and of the development of the country. We also believe that SSS is the interest of the majority of the people. The “silent majority”. It is aimed at bringing about a united and cohesive Bangsa Malaysia. It speaks for unity among the various communities in the country. We recognise that there are impediments but we hope the Government would find it in the interest of the majority to begin carrying out an in-depth study on the existing education system.

bleached_4ever,

Thank you for promoting SSS and the offer to let our voices be heard in the website you provided the link to.

The website looks impressive and uses the name “the Government”. But we could not find any particulars of ownership or authorship. We could also not find a Homepage. We would appreciate it if you would kindly let us know if the site is government-owned or linked and, if so, in what way.

We would love to work together with you when we have a clearer idea as to your background and purpose of running the site, a sort of mission statement. We wonder if views submitted are published in that or any other website.

Thank you and hope to hear from you again.

You say follow Malay way. Why cannot follow other people way? Why Malay cannot follow Chinese way also? My father say one Minster Kher Bohari wear Chinese dress and photo Chinese New Yaer card to people. Perak Minster Nisa had photo hold joss stick pray with Chinese when Teoh Beng Hock died or like that.

hello,since when mr SSS admin ask the rest of malaysian to follows malays way?

still dreaming or you simply don’t understand?we never ask chineses and indians to discards your heritages,customs and religion.we just says “lets go to school together”.

so you want mr SSS admin walking around the street with chinese attire?with joss stick in hand,ready to stop at any shrines and temples to pray?hahaha.funny and damn hilarious.

we all are talking about school,not about dresses and joss sticks,CNY cards or angpau.you can learn mandarin along with tamil and english together in one school.mingling with each others,learning about chinese culture,indian and others too.

if chinese want to preserved their culture,your community still can do it under SSS.SSS never seek to wipe clean chinese culture,you just paranoid.

23 10 2009
SSS Admin

SYK,

We agree with what antuway said, that there are Malays willing to show their sense of togetherness by putting on Chinese dresses, have photographs taken and sent out as greeting cards. Especially on the festive occasion of Chinese New Year. We hope that non-Malays would also emulate that example of feeling together as citizens of the country.

We also agree with what CK said, that SSS never seeks to wipe out Chinese culture. We speak only for the use of Bahasa Malaysia as the only medium of instruction for all schools in the country. We also have said that, being the first in this country with an established system of government, a set social order and ways of life that even the British colonialists recognised and respected, we feel others who came to this country later should respect those ways as well. This country was known as Tanah Melayu, the British called it Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, later it became Malaya and now Malaysia. Many non-Malays respect and follow the Malay way. You can see, for example, non-Malays wearing the songkok at official functions like the opening of the Dewan Undangan Negeri Perak in Ipoh.

We hope you will recognise the fact that the Malays have been the first in this country with an established system of government, having legal and social rules of conduct in society. Many of such rules of conduct, like respecting the Malay Rulers (which is also a part of the Malay way), have been incorporated into the Constitution of the country. As a Malaysian citizen, you need to fully accept, respect and live by that Constitution. It is the minimum requirement for loyalty to this country.

SYK,

If i wanted to follow china way, I will go to the People’s Republic of Communist China. Do you know in which country you are standing now?

You meant the Minister Khir Johari ? He’s a Malay, you see how a Malay willing to accomodate Chinese?

You meant ex-MB Perak Nizar? holding jostick? I dont want to comment from religious aspect. This is yet another example of your own that a Malay willingness to accomodate, be together, be among each other.. trying to be Malaysian!

What about a chinese like you? Everything must be chinese ka? Everything must be chinese in the land of Malaysia? Real totok cinapek cinabeng la lu! This is Malaysia, you totok chinese have no place here! Balik tongsang la lu!
