We have been alerted by a regular visitor of an article written by Shen Yee Aun as published below. Most of the points contained in the email to us by the regular visitor have also been re-written and presented below.
If you are a Malaysian, or you claimed to be a Malaysian; how do you feel deep down inside when someone comes up to you and says:-
“why must it not be in bahasa Malaysia?“
Your deep down inside feeling is one of your yardsticks to measure how “Malaysian” you are. That is in case if you have any feeling at all, any sense at all to have lived here, what more born and raised here in this country called Malaysia.
And how do feel when that someone say it to your face, “…why must it not be in bahasa Malaysia ?…”, right after you had just made a statement saying:-
“Kerajaan BN adalah sahabat sejati pendidikan sekolah Cina,”
(Please click the link, HERE)
Knowing very well:-
- This is Malaysia
- In the Constitution, there is Article 152 pertaining to the Bahasa Kebangsaan
- One of the pillars of the Rukun Negara says “..Keluhuran Perlembagaan..”
- You are currently the executive leader of this country
- Pendidikan Cina do not uphold Bahasa Kebangsaan as the medium thus making the institutions ILLEGAL (please click HERE) in the eyes of the law of this Country.
Do you think when you spoke in front of some 3,000 chinese somewhere you don’t speak to the rest of us, Malaysians, elsewhere too? If they are chinese, then let them remain chinese. Why must you (Malaysian?) become chinese? This is Malaysia, “Di mana bumi dipijak, di situ langit dijunjung“.
Chauvinist chinese have long used “Mandarin”, an OFFICIAL LANGUAGE of the People’s Republic of Communist China, as an excuse. These chauvinist chinese themselves have to learn Mandarin when their mother tongue are in fact Hokkien, Cantonese, Foo Chow etc. Malaysians have long be mislead by this “Mandarin” excuse.
It is not about Mandarin. It is not about Bahasa Melayu. It is about NOT RESPECTING the Rukun Negara & Constitutions of Malaysia. It is about NOT WANTING TO BE MALAYSIANS. It is about WANTING TO TAKE OVER THIS HOUSE!!!! In the process, they succeeded in misleading shaky citizens like you. They smeared the very good names of the many fellow ethnic like Prof. Khoo Kay Kim, Dr. Ridhuan Tee and Shen Yee Aun, to name a few.
Look at those who are reading the news at TV and radio stations. Look at those in the Arm Forces, Police Force, government institutions etc. Look at those in the eastern, northern and southern towns and villages. We are all Malaysians! Truly Malaysians. But sadly, these few chauvinist are ruining our brotherhood, sisterhood and nationhood with their racist agendas. And you, the leaders, make it worse by adopting apologetic stance toward these chauvinist, more often than not.

I am Anak Jati Malaysia and proud to write & speak in Bahasa Malaysia
I Don’t Understand Why
Why each time if I write in our national language there will be people who will claim that why not I write in this or that language.
No 1 – What wrong of writing in Malay language?
No 2- Are we not Malaysian first and our ethnic second ?
No 3- Did I force any of you to read my article ?
No 4 – Why must it only be written in other language ?
Same goes to whenever I give talk or sometimes when I design banner. People will start to ask why it in bahasa Malaysia ?
My question is why must it not be in bahasa Malaysia ? I am not against other language like English , Mandarin and etc but why must some of you against me using bahasa Malaysia ?
Did I ever stop any of you to use whatever language that you all prefer using ?
Different people have different views. As for me I am proud of my country dearest Malaysia and I am proud to use my country official and national language.
I also don’t understand why
Why each time if I write something there will be people who will question who am I to talk or even write about it?
If it is so then who are you to even talk about me? and when you are somebody then you dont even need to talk to a nobody right?
You can have your freedom of views , opinions and rights to say anything about me or anything that you wanted. So do I.
Must I be somebody only can talk about somebody?
Then all the journalist and reporter got no rights to write about any public figure , leaders or politician just because they are journalist and reporter to compare with them ?
I will like to repeat myself again. If you guys ever ask me who am I again then I will say I am a normal anak bangsa Malaysia citizen that entitle to freedom of media , freedom of expressions and also my rights to democracy.
Who are those people up there without ordinary people like us in the society ? I thought they are suppose to be our servant and we are the boss ?
I thought customer is suppose to be the boss and the restaurant owner is suppose to be the otherwise ?
Again. If you guys think I am a nobody then why allegations like I am being paid arise ? Who am I to be paid compare to so many great journalist and editor or even media out there ? Don’t you think is better for them to pay to get the information is much wiser ?
How much do you think my piece of article worth ? If there no value why should they pay me? If there value why should they even pay that piece of article ?
