Race Relations >>>

Muhyiddin and UMNO mouthpieces always pick the shits from bloggers as truth

When you point your fingers to others, three fingers pointing to yourself.


Many baseless accusations against opposition are originated from pro-UMNO bloggers like kickdefella, etc. and published as a truth in the newspapers and TV stations the following days.

The latest is a DAP Malay senate was accused by pro-UMNO bloggers to say racial slur against public servants. Muhyiddin picked up the shit and made it like a truth.

Two gangs from different races fighting in the street is a normal street crime, but most Malaysians will relate it to racial clash. This is not a rumor, it’s a NEP-conditioned perception.

I went through a horrific story in 1977 when a 16-year Malay girl was raped and murdered gruesomely in the rubber estate by a Chinese middle age man from my village. The girl’s father is a few Malays who have Chinese friends and I knew him since my childhood days. He stopped to visit my village after the incident.

The Chinese man was arrested several years at Johor Bahru and sentenced to jail.

The crime case was turned into a racial hatred issue, and a racial riot almost broke up, but it was prevented at last minute by an influential penghulu and UMNO leader. The penghulu is Muhyiddin’s father-in-law.

My experience is not a rumor, the men in the village already armed with various weapon and ready to kill armed intruders. A skinny boy like me also armed with a machete, I chose to join the adult to defend the village instead of hiding in safe place like other boys in my age.

Another lesson is you will see who is real man under such emergency, some look very brave adults are actually cowards who are hiding in the bedroom with their wives. These people do not understand the mob will kill them also even they hide in the bedroom.

The incident in my village was fully blacked out in the mass media. No internet at the time to spread the “rumor”.

Irresponsible bloggers blamed


SECURITY AT STAKE: Rumours on racial riots baseless, says Muhyiddin

ALOR STAR: THE spreading of rumours of racial riots in Sungai Petani, Kedah could harm national security and paint a detrimental image of the country.

In blaming irresponsible bloggers, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said they were setting a dangerous precedent on the Internet.

“There was no such thing (as racial riots), but they had deliberately created rumours of a massive racial clash in Sungai Petani.

“This is very dangerous and a very irresponsible thing to do,” he said after attending a special meeting with Kedah civil servants at Universiti Utara Malaysia in Sintok, near here.

Muhyiddin, who was here on a day-long working visit, was asked on postings claiming racial clashes had resulted in the loss of life and the torching of a mosque over the past few days.

He said nobody should condone the actions of such irresponsible bloggers and rumour-mongers.

“The police have confirmed that none of what was posted on the Internet was true. The public should not be unduly worried or afraid.”

Kedah police chief Datuk Ahmad Ibrahim said police had detained 36 people to help them investigate the spreading of false news claiming there were racial riots in the state. He said the suspects, aged between 18 and 36, were being held at the Kuala Muda district police headquarters.

“More people will be roped in to facilitate our investigations.

“We will not compromise with anyone or groups which are out to create unrest and public disorder.”

Earlier, Muhyiddin praised civil servants for their commitment in helping realise the government’s various socio-economic programmes for the people.

He said many milestones reached by the country, including Malaysia’s achievement in becoming the world’s 10th top nation in attracting foreign direct investments, were made possible by the close cooperation of civil servants.

“The government comes up with policies and programmes and our civil servants help realise them.

“We acknowledge your contributions and sacrifices and all of you have made it possible for us to achieve many programmes for the people,” he said to a thunderous applause from the floor, comprising about 4,000 civil servants based in Kedah. Additional reporting by Ili Shazwani

nkkhoo as a prominent blogger need to be careful now that PDRM is warning bloggers as the GE is looming.

Muhydddin’s father-in-law is a real Malaysian, a honor not many UMNO leaders can get from me. To be fair, not all UMNO grassroots leaders are Mahathir racist-typed.
