Negeri Hang Tuah ada Hang Samseng...Hang Juboq...

NONESasterawan Negara Datuk A Samad Said mengecam tindakan sekumpulan pengacau yang membuat serangan di majlis minum petang di Melaka yang sepatutnya melibatkan Pengerusi Bersama BERSIH Datuk S Ambiga Sabtu lalu.

Sambil menyifatkan kumpulan itu sebagai "samsengan", A Samad mengaku malu dengan tindakan mereka kerana ia "bukan cara untuk mewaraskan demokrasi".

"Ketika Ambiga hendak ke Merlimau, lagi dahsyat. Saya dengar lebih kurang 200 samseng di Merlimau sudah menunggu. Ambiga dijemput oleh PAS untuk menghuraikan perjuangan bersih. Itu landas demokrasi.

"Belum pun beliau tiba, teman-teman di sana minta supaya (beliau) jangan datang, sebab samseng sudah ada di negeri Hang Tuah.

"Sudah ada 'Hang Samseng'. Cuba fikirkan, di negari Hang Tuah, ada Hang Samseng," katanya.

Bercakap dalam wawancara dengan Malaysiakini semalam, tokoh yang lebih dikenali sebagai Pak Samad menegaskan, serangan membaling batu hujung minggu lalu "bukan caranya dan mereka memilih cara lain" untuk menunjukkan bantahan mereka.

Bagaimanapun, PERKASA Melaka dan Umno Jasin menafikan terlibat dalam insiden itu walaupun terdapat anggota masing-masing menyertai perhimpunan membantah kehadiran Ambiga dalam acara itu.

Pak Samad yang juga terkenal dengan novel Salina itu turut menyindir pihak yang melakukan "senaman punggung" dan peniaga yang mahu menjaja di hadapan rumah Ambiga esok dan lusa.

"Kita sudah 50 tahun merdeka dan budaya serta budi bahasa kita adalah punggung. Dan selepas itu guna samsengan cat rumah orang. (Apakah) itu budaya kita," katanya.


Selepas perhimpunan BERSIH 3.0, Majlis Bertindak Peniaga-peniaga Kuala Lumpur (MBPKL) dan Persatuan Veteran Tentera Melayu (PVTM), masing-masing mahu berniaga di depan rumah Ambiga dan melakukan senaman punggung di hadapan rumah Ambiga.

Ia dibuat sebagai menunjukkan bantahan kepada Ambiga yang juga seorang peguam terhadap penganjuran perhimpunan BERSIH 3.0 yang didakwa menjejaskan pendapatan peniaga dan merosakkan imej negara.

Tindakan mereka itu mengundang kemarahan dan bantahan pelbagai pihak termasuk Ketua Pemuda Umno Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar.-malaysiakini


Hang Samseng mengganas di Merlimau...

There was Hang Tuah then, now Hang Samseng...

NONE
During the glorious days of the Malacca sultanate, the legendary warrior Hang Tuah, leading his four other 'Hang' companions, stood out as a symbol of pride for the Malay kingdom.

But in modern Malacca,  'Hang Samseng' (gangster) have emerged, lamented Bersih co-chairperson A Samad Said, in reference to the violence targeting his colleague Ambiga Sreenevasan in Merlimau, Malacca, last Saturday.


"When Ambiga was going to Merlimau... There were around 200 gangsters waiting there. Ambiga was invited by PAS to explain Bersih's struggle. This is democracy.


"But before she could arrive, our friends there called and asked her not to come because there already were gangsters in the land of Hang Tuah.

 
"Think about it, in the land of Hang Tuah, there is 'Hang Samseng'," added the national laureate, fondly known as Pak Samad.

While Hang Tuah is highly regarded in Malay culture, Pak Samad, 77, described the 'Hang Samseng' as an "embarrassment".


"I feel ashamed. This is not the way we strengthen our democracy, more than 50 years after we achieved independence... (they should) choose a better way" he said in an interview yesterday.


Last Saturday, a hi-tea event which was supposed to feature Ambiga was blocked by protesters and two DAP state assemblypersons, Khoo Poay Tiong and Tey Kok Kiew, were pelted with eggs and stones as they were leaving.


The incident
damaged several vehicles, including Tey's, which was left with severe denting, a punctured tyre and a broken side mirror.

Perkasa
and Umno have admitted to being part of the protest but have both denied that they were responsible for the subsequent violence.

 
'Is shaking butts our culture?'

NONE
The Merlimau violence was preceded by a series of bizarre protests outside Ambiga's house in Kuala Lumpur, including a 'butt exercise' which made the international news headlines.

This, Pak Samad sarcastically suggested, appears to have become a new culture.


"We have achieved independence for more than 50 years, and our culture and manners appear to be butts. And then they hired gangsters to paint outside people's house. Is this our culture?" he asked.


Last Tuesday, a group of army veterans shook their
posterior in front of Ambiga's house in protest against what they said was the smearing of the country's name by Ambiga, who they descirbed as an "enemy of the nation".

Five days before that, a group of traders set up stalls and served
free burgers, including beef burgers, outside the house of Ambiga, who is a Hindu and vegetarian.

On Monday, a group of traders painted
yellow lots for trading along the road outside Ambiga's house in preparation of a 'mini market' they plan to set up tomorrow and Friday.

The bustle outside her house comes as a series of counter-protests by traders claiming they had suffered losses during the Bersih 3.0 protest in Kuala Lumpur last month.- malaysiakini
