Setahun Kempen SSS – Merdeka !

30 08 2010

Sempena hari ulangtahun kemerdekaan negara yang ke-53, kami ingin berkongsi dengan para pengunjung laman SATU SEKOLAH UNTUK SEMUA (SSS) mengenai sejarah bagaimana bermulanya Kempen SSS ini.

Diilhamkan serta dicetuskan di dalam perbincangan-perbincangan yang berlangsung di laman KIJANG MAS – DEMI NEGARA, maka tersedialah sebuah memorandum yang ditujukan kepada Menteri Pelajaran. Sila layari laman berikut, yang dimuatkan pada 12 Mei 2009, untuk sejarah ini:-

Sejurus selepas itu, sebuah laman petisyen disediakan untuk rakyat Malaysia yang cintakan negara ini menanda-tangani seuah petisyen bagi menyokong perjuangan ini:-

Perjuangan juga tidak sunyi dari duri dan ranjau di sepanjang perjalanan. Pada peringkat awal lagi kempen ini telah mendapat tentangan keras dari Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran sendiri, selaku ketua pemuda MCA, yang mengancam untuk membuat laporan polis terhadap pergerakan kempen ini. Wee Ka Siong @ Wei Jiaxiang, berhempas pulas mempertahankan sekolah vernakular yang bercirikan ciri-ciri kebangsaan Negara Cina Komunis, sekurang-kurangnya dari segi bahasa penghantar. Kita juga sangsi tentang kandungan pendidikan yang ada di sekolah-sekolah vernakular ini, terutama mengenai fakta sejarah negara tercinta ini, kerana sekolah-sekolah vernakular ini nampaknya bukanlah terletak sepenuhnya di bawah pemerhatian dan kawalan Kementerian terbabit. Kalaulah bahasa penghantar sudahpun mengagungkan bahasa Negara Cina Komunis, apa lagi aspek-aspek lain dalam pendidikan sekolah vernakular tersebut? Setidak-tidaknya, mereka membelakangi penggunaaan Bahasa Kebangsaan yang sedia termaktub di dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan Akta Bahasa. Ini boleh dikategorikan sebagai bersifat anti-nasional.

Tidak lama selepas Kempen SSS ini bermula, Prof. Dr. Khoo Kay Kim menyuarakan betapa pentingnya negara ini mempunyai suatu sistem pendidikan sekolah satu aliran kebangsaan, dalam arti kata lain, SATU SEKOLAH UNTUK SEMUA. Saranan Prof. Khoo itu telah mendapat sambutan hangat dipelbagai peringkat masyarakat seperti yang dipaparkan oleh oleh media-media massa.  Kami perhatikan di ruang alam maya ini, ramai penulis-penulis blog menyatakan sokongan terbuka terhadap sistem sekolah satu aliran ini, baik dari kalangan penulis blog pro-kerajaan ataupun pro-pembangkang, termasuk juga penulis-penulis blog yang ‘neutral’ pendiriannya. Setakat ini sudah terdapat 200 lebih penulis-penulis blog yang dapat kami kesan memaparkan logo SSS di laman masing-masing sebagai tanda sokongan. Ini tidak termasuk penulis-penulis blog yang menulis artikel khusus bagi menyokong kempen ini, walaupun mereka tidak memaparkan logo SSS di laman mereka.

Oleh itu, di sini, sempena sambutan hari Kemerdekaan Negara buat kali ke-53 ini, kami sekali lagi menyeru Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Dato’  Seri Najib supaya mengambil langkah segara untuk melaksanakan SATU SEKOLAH UNTUK SEMUA, demi bangsa dan negara. Janganlah dipolitikan nasib anak-anak bangsa kita di bumi bertuah ini.

MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA!

Marilah kita sama-sama berjuang untuk meMERDEKAkan sistem pendidikan anak-anak bangsa kita supaya bebas dari ciri-ciri BUKAN KEBANGSAAN seperti yang diamalkan di sekolah-sekolah vernakular.





Open Letter, Open Transactions, The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth

12 08 2010

******************************************************************************************************************************

In the last post we wrote about honest mistakes, half truths and propaganda. But now Ronnie Liu, Selangor State Executive Council (Exco) member, says there are also “Spins, lies, innuendos and blatant manipulation of the MSM by the BN … left many of us exco members tired, with not much energy to focus on governing.” Perhaps, not being politicians, there are many things we don’t know or have not mentioned.

As far as that went, perhaps we didn’t want to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth out of respect for politicians. We only mentioned about the not yang berhormat Yang Berhormats who kept shouting (one climbed up a table, stood up and shouted to his opponents) in the sanctimonious Perak State Asembly Hall or the august debating chamber of Parliament. And the PKR Selangor ADUN Yang Berhormat and the PKR Parliamentary Yang Berhormat alleging that Ronnie Liu had meetings with gangsters (“Underworld”) in the Selangor State Government offices.

Ronnie Liu himself is on record for banging the doors of the MACC offices, even the Klang Hospital mortuary, indicating lack of respect for dead bodies, including that of poor Teoh Beng Hock, the witness to corruption investigation in the Selangor State Exco. Teoh who was said to have evidence of the less-than open transactions in the Exco Selangor. Like another case of not-so-open tender transactions involving Ronnie Liu’s letterheads.

There’s quite a bit of brouhaha among the Exco members, hence Ronnie Liu’s Open Letter. The public is hoping for MACC to renew investigation on the previous case as well as this new one and that it will lead to those concerned swearing to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth in court.

We didn’t also know that opposition politicians get “tired, not much energy to focus on governing”. No wonder things in the Selangor state government are quite messy now. Read what Ronnie Liu says below.

And the Little Napoleons came back. The story of Little Napoleons that is. By the same Thomas Lee Seng Hock who has written about it earlier. Perhaps he does not belong to the Ronnie Liu group because he is not tired – not tired of talking about Little Napoleons, that is. He was asking that certain civil servants be “whipped”. Read the following article.

And there is yet another kind of half truths or “spins, lies, innuendos and blatant manipulation”, to use Ronnie Liu’s words. It’s “khabar angin” or “wind news” (literal translation), according to Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. Some people are saying there is crisis in his relationship with Dato Seri Najib. The Utusan Malaysia report below has the story.

To balance two articles from Sin Chew, we publish another article from Utusan Malaysia – see the last article, on the increasing role and the mushrooming of Malay NGOs, perhaps a sign of the times, of the unsatisfactory performance of the Malay political parties. Even so, we publish it at the risk of being accused pro-Utusan or pro-UMNO. Utusan is an UMNO newspaper, they say. It often quotes the views of Tun Dr Mahathir. Many disliked TDM’s firmness and assertiveness in maintaining order and unity for 22 years in this country. Corrupt, crony-infested, they say. Especially supporters of Anwar Ibrahim who tried to topple him but got sacked instead. And charged with sodomy and corruption. Got jailed, appealed, then got out on technical grounds. But now facing a second sodomy charge under DSN’s administration.

Selamat berpuasa, folks. And when free, do state your opinions about the above here. Non-Muslims who are not fasting, and not tired like Ronnie Liu, are welcomed to state your views as well. In fact, even tired views are welcomed. For or against whatever are said, as well as not said but inferred, or related to, in here.

Those new to this blog, do read the comments and the replies to them as well. The substance is not just in the articles, but in the comments and replies as well.

Open Letter from Ronnie Liu
Friday 6 August 2010

At this juncture, I humbly request that my colleagues and peers to take heed that we should not use the media to voice and settle our differences, if any, but should in a matured and professional manner resolve conflicts through the proper channels in the party and within Pakatan.

When I wake up in the morning, sometimes I wish things were different.

Learning to settle down as part of the government in the state of Selangor has not been easy. I dread reading the MSM (mainstream media). So much energy is wasted as BN and Pakatan Rakyat bash each other, trying to outdo each other, and to show to the public how we are good at condemning each other.

Spins, lies, innuendos and blatant manipulation of the MSM by the BN has left many of us exco members tired, with not much energy to focus on governing.

Trying to deliver our election promises has not been easy, as the little Napoleons in government service continue to make life difficult for us to implement new measures. Lack of orderly and scheduled communication channel among Selangor Pakatan government leaders and party leaders/members create opportunities for BN opportunists to create lies, and most times, trying to create animosity among ourselves.

The ‘fire-fighting’ seems endless. Being new in government, my Pakatan colleagues and I struggle to learn the ropes, sometimes in a very hostile environment of civil servants. I am just thankful we have an effective CEO as MB. The MB has been a very good example of government leadership and has helped us settle down in our respective roles as state exco. However, even his energy is drained because of the ‘over politicking’ environment.

For me personally, in the midst of such a situation, having someone experienced to help me will be definitely an asset. Yet behind my back, my office and letterheads were wrongfully used. It is impossible to keep tabs on everything. That’s why I only recently discovered what was happening when someone sent to my office the ‘abused letterheads’.

In practicing CAT (competency, accountability and transparency), we tried to be fair to Tee Boon Hock by carrying out our own investigations to get to the truth of the matter. However, when it became public knowledge, I believe the party did what it thought was right. As a loyal DAP party member, I have submitted myself to the proceedings of the disciplinary committee and will cooperate to the utmost.

At this juncture, I humbly request that my colleagues and peers to take heed that we should not use the media to voice and settle our differences, if any, but should in a matured and professional manner resolve conflicts through the proper channels in the party and within Pakatan.

Press conferences should only be conducted after the party has resolved issues and not before. We should not create a culture where every issue is discussed through the media. Knowing who controls the MSM, we should not give the BN the opportunity to create spins and lies to distract the public from their own problems.

We must not forget our real battle – to overthrow BN, not our own members. We need to have more regular communication. Among those in government — state exco members, state assembly members, MPs, PBT (local authorites), councillors and Pakatan party members. We are all going through a learning curve, and we need to consolidate our relationships, whatever the ranks and positions we hold.

It’s time to take stock, time to reflect, review and re-strategise! The enemy is BN!

I am not absolving myself from blame over this incident. I am just requesting that all leaders put aside our personal differences and come together more often to re-build and consolidate our relationships.

Our struggle has been long and arduous. At last, we have a chance to really bring change to our beloved Malaysia. Let’s do it right – for our families and the families of all Malaysians. We owe this to our future generation. Let’s build a new Malaysia together.

Enough is enough of Little Napoleons
The Penang Nik Ali fiasco Opinion Little Napoleons 2010-08-10 19:08

By Thomas Lee Seng Hock

It surely comes as a big surprise that less than two weeks after the cabinet lifted the iniquitous illegal curb on non-Muslim religious clubs and societies that a Little Napoleon school head should unilaterally reject the application to set up a Chinese society in his school.

The Sin Chew Daily reported that parents of a school in Petaling Jaya are upset that its school head has rejected the application to set up a Chinese society in school.

A parent was quoted by the Sin Chew Daily that he had been fighting for the establishment of a Chinese society in his son’s school since February this year, but the school head did not give his approval even though there are Chinese language teachers willing to supervise the proposed society.

The Education Ministry has on 4 August 2010 revoked a decade-old directive compelling those who want to form non-Muslim clubs or societies in schools to first obtain its permission.

The federal government decision to revoke the directive came about following the public disclosure of several sham treatments of non-Muslim religious clubs and societies in several schools.

DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang, who was at the forefront in demanding for the removal all restrictions on the non-Muslim religious clubs and societies in schools, had contended that such a policy and practice were a direct contradiction of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s 1 Malaysia initiative to foster national unity among multi-ethnic Malaysians.

Kit Siang has pointed out that the discriminative policy is against Najib’s 1 Malaysia policy and the New Economic Model objective to educate a critical, creative and innovative generation of Malaysians

“What is the use of boasting about Malaysia as a model of ethnic, cultural, religious and biological diversity and Malaysia’s rich and unique cultural heritage when restrictions continue to be in place affecting the formation of non-Muslim societies in schools?” Kit Siang had asked.

Following widespread discussion and debate on the issue, with heightened political and social pressures, the federal government finally conceded to the public demand and revoked the controversial directive.

The month-long controversy was resolved about two weeks ago when the cabinet ordered the Education Ministry to withdraw the directive. Is it truly resolved?

Yet, one obstinate school head has been reported this week to be flexing his Little Napoleon muscles to abuse his authority to prevent the formation of a Chinese society in his school.

I had foreseen that such a scenario would happen. In one of my previous Comments, I said: “I hope the school heads, some of whom practise the Little Napoleon culture, will not make things difficult for the students who want to form such clubs or societies. In fact, the school heads should help the students by providing the meeting place and appointing teachers to be advisors to guide them. If there is the unlikelihood or improbability that a school may not have a teacher practising the faith of any such club, the school concerned should allow a pastor, a priest or a religious elder acceptable to the parents of the students to act as the religious advisor. The school should also allow speakers from the churches or temples to be invited to speak at the meetings of such clubs or societies.”
[Whose credit? Not MCA’s, of course http://www.mysinchew.com/node/42891 ]

The latest complaint by parents of the Petaling Jaya school should not be taken lightly. How the federal government handles this case has far-reaching consequence to other schools, now and in future.

The federal government, through its Education Minister, should step in immediately to order the recalcitrant school head to stop his nonsense and carry on his duties without any discrimination and bias. If he doesn’t toe the line after a firm warning on the matter, disciplinary action should be taken against him. This is to send out the message loud and clear to other Little Napoleon school heads not to abuse their authority in running their schools according to their own whims and fancies.

Enough is enough! We have tolerated the nonsense by such Little Napoleons for far too long, and we want to see the federal government cracking the whip to bring the contumacious civil servants to toe the line.

If nothing positive and concrete is done to ensure that our civil service is unblemished and impeccable, as far as humanly and practically possible, then it will be a mere illusion that our nation can progress to a developed nation status.

For a start, the civil service needs a thorough mental revolution to ensure that the civil servants are neutral, impartial and non-partisan in the performance of their duties and in serving the elected government of the day.

For example, the recent case of state development office Nik Ali snubbing Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on an Umno platform should not simply be written off, without disciplinary action taken against the unruly officer for participating in a partisan political press conference held by Umno. It is most unfortunate that even the chief secretary to the government doesn’t understand the civil service culture and code of conduct, and condoned the violation of the principle of neutrality and impartiality of the civil service.

Of course, the enormous bureaucracy of the nearly million-strong Malaysian civil service will require a determined Hercules effort and time to reform, but it is not humanly impossible to change it.

In fact, one fundamental objective of the Nasjib administration is the transformation of the government machinery, which is basically the civil service.

The total transformation of the civil service can only happen from top down. The revamp must start from the top with the mental reconditioning, performance recasting, and image remodeling of the topmost civil servants.

Is Najib serious about the need for the transformation of the civil service? If so, he must start cracking the whip, and get the civil servants, especially the Little Napoleons, to toe the line. Enough is enough! We want to see concrete changes, not political propaganda.

Hubungan saya dengan Najib baik, kata Muhyiddin

10/08/2010 10:25pm

KUALA LUMPUR 10 Ogos — Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin hari ini menolak khabar angin kononnya beliau mengalami krisis hubungan dengan bosnya Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Katanya, hubungannya dengan Perdana Menteri adalah baik dan sokongannya kepada Najib tidak perlu dipertikai dan diragui semua pihak.

“Saya nak sebutkan kerana saya terasa terpanggil bila Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim (Menteri Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan) kata kepada saya, dalam muka akhir itu (buku Najib Tun Razak-Melakar Transformasi Malaysia) gandingan mantap “Najib-Muhyiddin” dan itu sudah disahkan.

“Cuma saya nak maklumkan memang tidak ada pihak yang harus meragui sokongan padu yang saya berikan kepada Perdana Menteri sejak awal lagi sampai sekarang ini,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas melancarkan buku Najib Tun Razak-Melakar Transformasi Malaysia di sini, hari ini.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas kenyataannya ketika ucapan perasmian yang turut menyentuh mengenai sokongannya kepada Najib.

Muhyiddin berkata khabar angin yang mengatakan bahawa hubungannya tidak baik dengan Najib itu sengaja ditimbulkan “pihak sebelah sana”.

“Kalau disorot dari segi sejarah perjuangan beliau sehingga menjadi Perdana Menteri, saya selama ini telah membantu dan menyokong, apatah lagi dalam peringkat sekarang. Beliau memberi kepercayaan kepada saya sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Pelajaran dan saya akan laksanakan dengan sebaik mungkin.

“Dalam konteks ini, ada pihak-pihak di sebelah sana yang nak ambil kesempatan dan kalau boleh nak timbulkan hubungan yang rengang. Pastinya ini tidak berhasil mereka lakukan,” katanya. – Bernama

****************************

NGO semakin garang, parti Melayu semakin…?

BENARKAH NGO kini mula mengambil alih peranan parti politik?

Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad dalam satu pertemuan dengannya pernah berkata ”ini ialah masanya untuk NGO.” Parti politik, katanya sudah lari daripada peranan mereka. Mereka sudah terlalu terikat kepada soal-soal yang terlalu politiking atau terlalu peribadi. Tapi benarkah?

Sayap parti politik yang satu masa dulu menjadi jurubicara rakyat jelata kini muram. Benarkah? Adalah sesekali mereka menunjukkan belang dengan memperjuangkan nasib wanita yang dilarikan jejaka Lombok. Membuat kenyataan demi kenyataan dengan muka terpampang di akhbar. Berteriak di hadapan Kedutaan Amerika, tapi apa lagi?

Rakyat kini memerlukan perhatian untuk membela nasib mereka. Terlalu banyak rungutan yang perlu diselesaikan. Mereka seharusnya berdiri bersama-sama rakyat.

Siapakah orang politik Melayu yang turut padang membela orang Melayu Pulau Pinang sekarang daripada kerakusan Lim Guan Eng? Mengikut orang saya di Pulau Pinang tak nampak, kecuali NGO.

Satu jolokan (bukan saya yang cipta) dalam blog Pisau.net menggambarkan sebuah parti politik Melayu di Pulau Pinang sedang menganjurkan kempen jom tidoq.

Kita tidak bermaksud memperkecilkan peranan mereka, tapi suara mereka kini terlalu senyap. Mereka harus berdiri, buat bising dan berteriak atas nama rakyat.

Guan Eng kini ketawa terbahak-bahak melihatkan tugasnya cukup mudah. Tiada rintangan langsung. Robohkan lagi gerai-gerai Melayu pun tiada yang bangkit bising. Yang ada hanyalah 200 orang kecil membantah tindakan Perbadanan Pembangunan Pulau Pinang (PDC) menghalang 27 peniaga Melayu berniaga di Bazar Ramadan Komtar.

Mana dia gelombang rakyat tunjuk perasaan – ala Tian Chua – yang memenuhi Jalan Masjid India yang mendapat liputan luas CNN, Al-Jazeerah, BBC dan lain-lain?

Saya berani mencabar di sini, kenapa tidak dilancarkan gelombang ala-Tian Chua itu terus-menerus dari Masjid Kapitan Keling ke Pejabat Ketua Menteri di Komtar saban minggu? Saya tidak menghasut kerana pihak pembangkang tidak akan marah kerana, lagi pun, itulah cara mereka yang kerap dilakukan dulu.

Hanya orang yang cukup selesa sahaja yang tidak akan berbuat apa-apa.

Kasihan orang Melayu Pulau Pinang. Mereka cukup menderita sekarang. Nak berniaga di gerai Ramadan yang tiba hari ini pun susah. Saya hanya boleh bersimpati melalui tulisan ini, tapi mana dia pejuang-pejuang kita yang kononnya berdiri atas nama Alif, Ba, Tha; Agama, Bangsa dan Tanah Air?

Saya dapat tahu, pihak yang cukup aktif sekarang membela orang Melayu Pulau Pinang ialah Pertubuhan Kebajikan Insan Mulia, diterajui oleh seorang wanita bernama Kak Min atau Aminah Abdullah. Selain NGO daripada Sekretariat Perhimpunan Melayu Pulau Pinang, Kelab Warisan Malaysia Pulau Pinang (KERIS) dan beberapa buah yang lain.

Kesemua penerajunya tidak ternama langsung, kecualilah Kak Min, bekas ketua wanita PKR yang dikatakan menongkah arus kerana tidak tertahan dengan sikap cauvinis dan rasis Guan Eng.

Begitu juga di Selangor dan Perak, NGO Melayu tumbuh bagai cendawan.

Dengar kata Pemuda UMNO kini ada tektik baru. Mereka dikatakan mengambil pendekatan berhemah (!?)

Sayap muda yang dahulunya garang dan bengis itu dan pernah diberi jolokan Singa UMNO, kini berhemah?

Rakyat mahukan suara mereka, tapi mereka tidak menyahut. Atas sebab itullah mungkin benar kata-kata Tun Dr. Mahathir itu ”ini ialah masanya untuk NGO.”

NGO – Pertubuhan Bukan Kerajaan atau ada yang menyebut No Gaji Organisation mula mengambil alih peranan sayap muda yang lesu itu. Pertumbuhan mereka kini merata. Rata-ratanya atas nama orang Melayu, mereka mula mengambil alih peranan parti politik tertentu. Benarkah?

NGO kini sedang diperhatikan oleh banyak pihak. Orang-orang Melayu pun mula tertarik dengan mereka. Yang tidak suka PKR masuk NGO, yang tidak suka Pas dan DAP pun masuk NGO dan yang keluar dari UMNO dan pemudanya yang berhemah pun khabarnya menyertai NGO.

Mereka ini bukan tidak suka parti pemerintah, tapi tidak sukakan parti pembangkang. Mereka ini mahukan suara yang lebih lantang, dan gerak-geri yang lebih kelihatan.

Dalam zaman aman bolehlah berhemah, ini ialah zaman gawat, oleh itu satu pendekatan yang lebih kelihatan amat-amat diperlukan.

Orang Melayu kini melihat NGO ialah jawapannya. Ia lebih lantang daripada sayap parti yang dulu amat lantang mempertahankan hak-hak mereka.

Parti-parti pembangkang berjaya hari ini kerana kelantangan mereka. Orang tersentak dengan kewujudan mereka. Mereka begitu organised menganjurkan perhimpunan raksasa yang memeningkan kerajaan. Mereka berdemo, disembur air lada dan bersurai. Tiada lain dan tiada bukan untuk menunjukkan kewujudan mereka. Itu sahaja, walau apa orang kata – mereka akhirnya berkuasa di beberapa negeri termasuk Selangor dan Pulau Pinang.

Tapi kini, nampak gayanya, mereka pun lagi teruk. DAP membuat kenyataan yang mengapi-apikan kaum. Sehingga sanggup mempersoalkan apa yang orang Melayu dapat sekarang harus dimansuhkan.

Isu ini harus disuarakan. Sayap muda parti pemerintahan harus bangkit. Apakah senyap lebih baik daripada bersuara? Mungkin saya silap dalam hal ini, tapi rakyat mahu mendengar suara mereka? Sayap parti harus menjadi front runner kepada isu-isu semacam ini.

Orang Melayu Pulau Pinang amat-amat mengharapkan pembelaan datang kepada mereka. Orang Selangor juga mahu melihat perubahan (Gelombang Merah Kuning) berlaku di negeri itu.

Tapi akan berlakukah semua itu?

Salam Aidil Fitri

19 09 2009
Kami di Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua, ingin mengambil kesempatan ini untuk mengucapkan kepada umat Islam dan juga seluruh rakyat Malaysia ucapan “Selamat Menyambut Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. Maaf Zahir dan Batin dari kami semua”.
We, at the Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua, wish the Muslims and all Malaysians “Selamat Menyambut Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. Maaf Zahir dan Batin dari kami semua
In the spirit of the festivities during these Hari Raya holiday, we visit relatives and friends, traditionally ask for forgiveness and forgive others for acts and omissions, deliberate or unintended, foster the spirit of goodwill and understanding among Muslims, and extend them to non-Muslims as fellow citizens in this Country.

 

During our free time in between, or after completing all those, we may reflect and ponder on the status of our well being as a nation, the state of the relationship among us as members of various communities in this Country, and, in friendly and amiable conversations among us,  try to inject values that will help bring about greater understanding among one another and a resolve to be together in peace and prosperity for a long, long time to come.

To help us in reflecting and pondering, we, on behalf of the authors, welcome you to visit several articles concerning national unity (which we are going to post in the near future, after the Hari Raya’s celebration), including those that have inspired the SSS Campaign and the setting up of this blog. Some of the views and method of presentation may appear provocative but they were designed not to offend but rather to jolt the minds and the consciousness of readers, Malaysians in general, to the problems at hand. Look at them from the positive angle, the cups or glasses that may be half full, rather than half empty!

SELAMAT HARI RAYA !

 

Dengan semangat perayaan semasa cuti Hari Raya ini, kita menziarahi sanak saudara dan rakan taulan, secara tradisi kita saling bermaafan atas kesilapan yang dibuat secara sengaja atau tidak. Tradisi ini dapat menyemai sikap bertimbang rasa dan saling memahami di antara masyarakat sesama Islam dan juga bukan Islam di Negara ini.

 

Di kesibukan meraikan Hari Raya, elok kiranya kita meluangkan sedikit masa mengimbas kembali dengan merenung kesejahteraan dan keharmonian Negara kita, tahap perhubungan antara kita dalam komuniti yang pelbagai, dan cara kita berinteraksi antara satu sama lain. Kita bersama memupuk nilai yang dapat meningkatkan persefahaman antara kita agar dapat bersama dengan aman dan makmur, semoga ianya berkekalan selamanya.

Untuk membantu kita mengimbas serta merenung perkara ini, kami bagi pihak pengarang, menjemput anda membaca beberapa artikel mengenai perpaduan nasional (bakal dimuatkan selepas sambutan Hari Raya). Ini termasuklah artikel-artikel yang telah memberi ilham kepada Kempen SSS sehingga lahirnya laman citra SSS. Mungkin sebahagian pandangan serta persembahan artikel-artikel nampak provokatif, tetapi ianya dilontar untuk menjolok minda serta membawa kesedaran, bukannya bertujuan menyinggung perasaan para pembaca berhubung permasalahan yang timbul di Negara kita secara amnya. Kita perlu melihat permasalahan ini dari sudut positif, air yang terisi dalam sebuah cawan atau gelas perlu dilihat separuh penuh, berbanding separuh kosong!
