Maintaining Racial Harmony In Malaysia
Yesterday, was a big day for the Malays, when the city of Kuala Lumpur was flooded by “baju merah” to mark their support for the legitimately elected government after the “baju kuning” of illegal Bersih 4 demonstration claimed that they are the voices of the nation.
The rally was a great success despite the instigation made by people whose idea about human rights and freedom of speech is, ‘it is our right to organise a rally to bash the government, Article 3(1) and Article 153 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia’ but ‘it is racist to organise a rally to support the government, Article 3(1) and Article 153 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.’
I am proud of my country and do not want the sovereignty of my country to be ‘invaded’ by foreign powers and ideologies.
Our country has always been peaceful apart from the racial riot of 13 May 1969 that killed a lot of innocent people that was started by people who are selfish and do not respect the Federal Constitution.
To protect the stability of our country and to avoid such tragedy, the government then amended the Akta Hasutan.
Now the people who call themselves as human right activists are again questioning some Articles in our Federal Constitution and want the Akta Hasutan to be abolished.
And they are the people who are behind the Bersih illegal demonstration.
They call the Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu racist because the participants are the Malays and bumiputeras but Bersih 4 is not racist because 90% of the participants were Chinese!
Are they being fair when they demand their rights but deny the rights of others?
We must learn from history and learn to respect each others’ rights to maintain racial harmony and we can start from listening to what had been said by our great forefathers:
TS Muhyiddin: Akta Hasutan Harus Dikekalkan
Below are some of the interesting part of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s speech to officiate the Wanita, Pemuda and Puteri Umno assemblies. It was a very good speech that makes me respect Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin even more for being a brave fighter of the Malays.
“Kerana itu saya telah menyatakan pendirian saya mengenai Akta Hasutan. Bagi saya, Akta ini wajar dikekalkan dengan beberapa penambahbaikan. Peruntukan khusus perlu dimasukkan untuk melarang mana-mana pihak daripada mempersoalkan jaminan perlembagaan mengenai kedudukan agama Islam sebagai Agama Persekutuan. Akta ini juga perlu menghalang mana-mana pihak daripada mempersoalkan hak penganut agama lain untuk mengamalkan kepercayaan agama masing-masing. Begitu juga dengan kedudukan tanah rezab Melayu dan Regimen Askar Melayu DiRaja yang merupakan sebahagian daripada wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu perlu dilindungi daripada perbuatan menghasut.
Apa yang penting ialah kita perlu melihat Akta Hasutan bukan sebagai akta yang hanya melindungi kepentingan orang Melayu, tetapi akta yang memelihara perpaduan dan keharmonian nasional.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Like most Malaysian, I totally agree with him. Akta Hasutan should not be abolished. As I mentioned in my post, “Is Proham Secretary-General Questioning Rights Of The Rulers?” the Akta Hasutan is very important to maintain the stability of our country.
May 13, 1969 has seen a bad racial riot and it can happen again if we are not careful. In fact, I’m not surprise if there are a small number of people who want such incident to happen. They’ll use Article 10 of the Federal Constitution to claim total freedom of speech even though they are aware that Article 10 is subjected to Clauses (2), (3) and (4), that among others restricts people from questioning the four sensitive issues. So, section 3 (1) (f) of the Akta Hasutan which protects the four sensitive issues is very important so that these issues will not be questioned even by the MPs in Parliament.
Below are the four sensitive issues:
Article 152 of the Federal Constitution
Article 153 of the Federal Constitution
Article 181 of the Federal Constitution
“Di samping itu, institusi-institusi Islam perlu diperkasa, penguatkuasaan undang-undang Islam perlu dipertegas dan kerjasama UMNO dengan NGO-NGO Islam perlu diperkukuh.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
I’m truly glad to hear this statement after UMNO Youth Vice Chief, Khairul Azwan’s unbelievable statement that angered a lot of Malay activists who are the supporters of UMNO. It is really odd when the UMNO Youth Vice Chief wants UMNO’s senior leaders to turn away from the people who are also fighting for “agama, bangsa dan negara”.
“Di mana taring Pemuda? Di mana ketegasan Wanita? Di mana kelantangan Puteri? Kesannya, kita seolahnya ketandusan pemimpin untuk menjuarai kepentingan orang Melayu. Sehinggakan timbul cakap-cakap di luar sana yang mengatakan NGO Melayu lebih lantang daripada UMNO dalam memperjuangkan hak dan kepentingan Melayu.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
There are more and more leaders who are lost and forgot which party they are in, for example, the Pemuda leaders. What did they do when people humiliate Islam and question thee four sensitive issues? On top of that, the Pemuda UMNO Youth Vice Chief wants the senior leaders of UMNO to be as liberal and forget the UMNO’s own constitution! Maybe they are too busy promoting their ‘#lifestyle’ to be cool and popular that they have ignored their responsibilities as Muslim leaders.
“Penghinaan ke atas umat Islam juga dilakukan secara terbuka. Selain itu, umat Islam juga sedang berhadapan dengan ancaman ekstremisme dan militanisme yang sekiranya tidak dibendung segera akan memberi kesan buruk kepada negara.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
I hope serious actions will be taken to solve this problems but I wonder if all of the leaders understand this problem, especially people like the UMNO Youth Chief who are not happy with the right wings NGOs who are fighting hard against this threat.
Is Muhyiddin Racist?
Please watch the video of Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s speech on Article 10 of the Federal Constitution : “Muhyiddin: Tiada Pihak Boleh Persoalkan Pembentukan Negara Malaysia (Video)”.
The opposition parties are very busy complaining about everything that they can think of instead of working to solve the problems in Selangor, Penang and Kelantan.
Now they and some human rights activists are fighting for a total freedom of speech because they want to be free to say everything they wish, including matters related to sensitive issues such as the Federal Constitution, the Royal Institution and others.
Like when Lim Kit Siang humiliate the Khutbah Jumaat that reminded the Muslims of the Surah Al-Baqarah: verse 120.
Tony Pua also humiliated JAKIM’s Khutbah Jumaat (about Valentine’s day.)
Hannah Yeoh went against the Sultan of Selangor’s decree on Allah issue as well as Selangor Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Among Muslims) Enactment 1988, and Article 11(4) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
