Yang Peguam UMNO sorang ni kononnya nak hapuskankan Sekolah Vernakular, Yang MCA hantar peguam nak mencelah mempertahankan Sekolah Vernakular.. Ini mainan UMNO dan MCA nak tunjukkan masing masing mahu jadi Juara Melayu..dan Sorang Jaguh Cina, Inilah game perkauman dan Kelompok Ashabiyah dalam BN..
Sama mcm Kes Jawi..MCA mula mainkan sentime menolak Jawi, Dan DAP terperangkap. UMNO dan PAS pulak berlakon mempertahankan Jawi, depa menyerang DAP.. masing masing berlakon jadi juara kaum masing2..inilah Politik Ashabiyah..depa guna sentimen kaum untuk Politik..
Isu Sekolah Vernakular ni bukan baru..Dah 60 Tahun.. UMNO BN dulu tak buat apa pun.. Masa tu depa menang 2/3 Parlimen, Depa nak pinda Perlembagaan pun boleh..Jadi tak payah beretorik... Dulu Menteri, hatta anak Ketua Pemuda UMNO,Asyraf Wajdi pun hantar anak sekolah Cina..tak payah pura pura berlakon jadi Jaguh Melayu..
Nak ubah sistem pendidikan bukan kerja mudah..bukan kerja Politik.. ia satu proses yang panjang.. Yang geng PH pun ramai yg terperangkap dgn Puak Ashabiyah UMNO dan MCA.. cerita budak boleh cakap Melayu atau tidak..bukan bergantung pada sistem persekolah Vernakular..tapi peranan Ibu Bapa.. pergaulan pelajar tu..
Ramainya jer orang Cina, hatta keputusan SPM dan PT3, yang ramai dapat keputusan yg baik dalam BM tetap anak Cina.. jadi berhentilah beretorik.. anak Melayu pun ramai yg fail BM kalau nak cari sebab..
Kalau orang tanya, Kenapa perlu hantar anak sekolah Cina, dah ada sekolah Kebangsaan.. Sepatutnya soalan itu kita kena tanya pada diri sendiri.. Kenapa ada Ibu bapa hantar Sekolah Pondok ? Sekolah Tahfiz ? Sekolah Agama sedangkan ada Sekolah kebangsaan.. Setiap ibu bapa ada kehendak dan sebab mereka sendiri..tak payah retorik sangatlah..
Sama lah game depa dalam isu RUU 355 dulu.. Yang UMNO dan PAS berlakon perjuangkan Islam.. Yang MCA dan MIC berlakon mempertahankan Hak bukan Islam..
Yg PAS dan UMNO berlakon nak bentang pindaan RUU355.. yg MCA hantar 100 peguam nak lawan RUU355..
Tugas Kerajaan hari ini, Perkasakan Sekolah Kebangsaan.. Jadi kan Sekolah Kebangsaan sekolah terbaik.. Lahirkan dari Sekolah Kebangsaan mereka yg berjaya menguasai pelbagai bahasa termasuk Mandarin.. sepertimana dulu kerajaan memperkenalkan JQAF.. akhirnya esok, masyarakat sendiri akan berubah.. - Ipohmali
The many victims of
Najib’s ‘reign of terror’...
Iskandar Puteri MP Lim Kit Siang called it the “night of the long knives”. It may not have been the most appropriate description but to many Malaysians, it was a “reign of terror”.
It started with the unceremonious removal of attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail on July 27, 2015 and ended on May 9, 2018. Over this period, it was “law of the jungle” as almost all state agencies discarded their standard operating procedures (SOPs).
What started as a fortnight-long exercise of destroying systems, establishments, procedures and even law and order, extended for almost three years. It ended only when the BN regime under Abdul Najib Razak was booted out of office.
During that period, families were ruined and many lives destroyed. For others, their careers were wrecked and their lives changed forever. As we sit back and learn bits and pieces that have emerged in court hearings and other official domains, we have to look back and thank ourselves. Had we not brought a change at the hustings last year, our destiny and our lives would have gotten worse. In a Malaysiakini commentary on June 11, 2017, I paid tribute to the unsung heroes of the 1MDB scandal.
More than two years later, while things may have changed, there has been no closure to one of the darkest moments in our history. While we know the reasons for the sacking of then deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin and rural and regional development minister Shafie Apdal, the details of other events remain murky.
Abdul Gani Patail
Besides Abdul Gani, there was former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Abu Kassim Mohamed, former Bank Negara governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz and a host of other personalities who suffered in the hands of a few who used the apparatuses of the state to prevent the dissemination of the truth.
A systematic attack was launched on the independence, impartiality and professionalism of key institutions including the Attorney-General’s Chambers, Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Bank Negara, the MACC and the auditor-general.
We knew something was amiss in the MACC when two members of its advisory panel, Lim Chee Wee and Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim, traded barbs over the latter’s decision to publicly exonerate Najib.
Zeti Akhtar Aziz
When the arrest of MACC deputy public prosecutor Ahmad Sazilee Abdul Khairi who had been handling the 1MDB probe, took place, the setting for a “rule by fear” was already in place. The unwarranted and immediate transfer of two of his colleagues – director of special operations Bahri Mohamad Zin and communications chief Rohaizad Yaakob – reinforced the belief that the state won’t box to Queensbury rules.
Upon his appointment as the “new” MACC chief in May last year, Mohd Shukri Abdull threw some light on the witch-hunt, claiming he was bullied and threatened during the course of his investigation the 1MDB and the SRC International scandals.
“My fellow investigators were under immense pressure, including having their witnesses spirited away. Abu Kassim and I were accused of being traitors out to overthrow the government. We were doing our best to save the country and recover money from abroad,” he was quoted as saying.
What was the role of Ali Hamsa , the then chief secretary to the government? Wasn’t he present when Abdul Gani was marched out of his office? Didn’t he issue the transfer order for the MACC officers? In retirement, he may be happy playing with his grandchildren and tending the garden, but doesn’t he owe it to the people of Malaysia to tell the truth?
Abdul Gani, the biggest victim in this whole malodorous affair, is in private practice and has yet to speak publicly on the issue. Perhaps bound by his conscience more than secrecy laws, he maintains a low profile and out of public view.
Abu Kassim now heads the National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption (GIACC) but in October last year, he publicly proclaimed that the MACC had found Najib’s claim that he received a donation from a Saudi royalty was false.
Asked to clarify a MACC statement made in 2015 that the money that was deposited in Najib’s personal account was a donation, he said: “At that particular time, in that statement, we said it was a donation. But after we had some engagement (with other authorities), we discovered the truth.”
But he has yet to comment on his “transfer” from MACC to Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) to be a lecturer. Neither has he said anything about other events, including the closing of many files by his successor and the arrest and transfer of his officers.
Other players, too, seem to have accepted it as ‘takdir’ or fate, but some have left it to the Almighty for divine retribution. Maybe it is a Malaysian malaise or it’s the culture. The reluctance to be open – however nasty or unpalatable – is not a trait that we can be proud of.
That said, we need a closure to those dark days when even printing the word ‘1MDB’ was taboo in newspapers. Are we going to continue to read, savour and be entertained by fake news or do we want the truth?
The answer is obvious and perhaps a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (like the one in South Africa) will bring about the closure to the atrocity and injustice perpetrated on the people of this country in the bid by a few to save one man. - R.Nadeswaran,mk
