 Mahathir’s policies, Malaysia’s loss

Mariam Mokhtar | October 11, 2013
His politicisation of the education system with its lack of meritocracy has crippled two generations of Malaysians and god forbid if he succeeds in pushing his son to continue his legacy
The haughty Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s longest serving prime minister, will never express regret. Mahathir made a mess of Malaysia and now he acts the innocent. He played on the insecurities of the Malays to build his empire – political and financial – within a warped framework of “unity”.
Whatever has gone wrong with Malaysia, the solution is not more Mahathirism. Look where it got us and look at what this nation will become if Mahathir succeeds in pushing his son, Mukhriz into pole position.
The closest Mahathir came to admit that his policies had failed Malaysians, was on Sept 12, at the 30th anniversary luncheon of the Japanese Chambers of Trade and Industry Malaysia (Jactim). He said that the use of English, especially in science and mathematics, would help improve the standing of Malaysian public universities on the world stage.
When asked for his views about the Malaysian Education Blueprint 2013-2025, his curt reply indicated his displeasure at the omission of English in schools.
“Melayu mudah lupa”, for it was Mahathir in his role as the Minister of Education in the 70s, who effectively wiped English off the slate, in schools. Mahathir dismantled a century of British effort to provide education, and demolished the work of two centuries of dedicated mission school pioneers.
On Oct 7, Mahathir again expressed his concern at the lack of proficiency in English displayed by students, when he complained about the quality of graduates, who presented themselves for job interviews. In one case, he claimed that only seven out of the 333 potential job applicants in information technology, were suitable. The unsuccessful graduates did not know English and had asked for the interview to be conducted in Malay.
“Melayu mudah lupa” and it is disingenuous of Mahathir to feign ignorance, because he tinkered with the education system, as Minister for Education and later, as prime minister. Malaysian parents from the 70s onwards, have been on a roller-coaster ride with their children’s education, which flopped between English and Malay, several times.
The 70s saw a decline of English medium schools. A decade later, it was the turn of the higher institutions of learning to suffer. Non-Malay lecturers saw their services, and their publications, being sidelined. Simultaneously, the civil service, the armed forces and the judiciary, absorbed many Malays and promoted them, in preference to the other races.
Today, Malaysia reaps what Mahathir has sown. With the emphasis on Malay, Malays are reluctant to speak English with some claiming that it is unpatriotic to speak anything but Malay. The irony is that these Malays complain about the difficulty of getting jobs in the private sector, or with multinational companies.
A child in a MARA residential college told this writer that if he were to speak English, to practise the language, he would be teased and bullied for showing off and wanting to be “Mat Salleh”. When overseas, a majority of the Malay students, diplomatic staff and government officials speak halting English. Many have difficulty making themselves understood.
Mahathir kept Malays frightened and demoralised
In Mahathir’s ‘Look east’ campaign, he claimed to like the Japanese work culture but ignored the Chinese work ethic. Why? If he had promoted the use of Mandarin alongside Malay, all Malaysian school children would have greater exposure to business and educational opportunities in the east, especially as the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is now a super power.
Mahathir did not care about the consequences of politicising education, despite the reservations of parents, pupils, teachers and schools. All he cared about was to be declared the “saviour of the Malays”. The man who claimed to have a vision for Malaysia, displayed a naïve, parochial view of the world.
Although more Malays enter higher education, their degrees are dumbed-down, because the pass marks are lowered for them. Despite the introduction of quotas, élite Malays abuse the system and deny their poorer countrymen the opportunities which were meant for them. Five decades ago, the Dewan Bahasa and Pustaka invited engineers and scientists to expand the Malay language, with suitable scientific terms.
Today, we see a bastardisation of the Malay language, not just in science and technology, with suffixes like “ogi” or “asi” being appended to many English words, in a lazy manner.
Mahathir’s politicisation of the education system with its lack of meritocracy, has crippled at least two generations of Malaysians. The brightest students whom we rejected, became Singapore’s gain.
Mahathir may have wanted to help the bulk of the Malays, but his policy of making everyone slow down, to the point of standstill, so the Malays could catch up, was detrimental to the nation. His policy should have been to provide assistance to all needy students, regardless of race or religion, to raise them to an acceptable standard.
If Malaysia is in a mess today, blame the BN politicians (Umno-Baru, MIC, MCA, Gerakan) who did not unite and stand up to Mahathir. We know that opposition politicians who criticised Mahathir, were jailed.
Yesterday, Mahathir said that the ministers, whose failed departments were highlighted in the latest Auditor-General’s report, should resign for incompetence. It is ironic that during his tenure, he defended the failures of his ministers, despite these failures being highlighted in the annual Auditor-General’s reports. Furthermore, he dismissed reports of his own deficiencies.
No one should be fooled by Mahathir’s latest call for ministers to resign. He is not concerned about the quality of Umno-Baru ministers, he is only weeding out the candidates who stand in the way of Mukhriz.
In his book on Mahathir, Barry Wain describes the pain felt by the young Mahathir, on being discriminated by the Malay community in his native Alor Setar. It is possible that Mahathir expressed his loathing for the Malays by using them to gain power, whilst at the same time giving the Malays the perception that they were privileged.
Mahathir kept his hold on the Malays by deliberately keeping them frightened and demoralised.
He did this by constantly harping on May 13 and racial violence. He told the Malays that they would not survive if they did not have the NEP and other government incentives. He gave them an inferior education because he knew that a confident and well-educated nation is more difficult to govern.
Mahathir made the Malays feel helpless so that they would think he was their saviour. The greatest tragedy would be if Mahathir managed to promote his son, Mukhriz, to continue, where he left off.

Dr Asri: Doa kehancuran dibolehkan jika dizalimi

Dr Asri: Doa kehancuran dibolehkan jika dizalimi KOTA BHARU - Umat Islam boleh memohon doa kehancuran jika merasa diri mereka ditindas dan juga dizalimi.

Bekas Mufti Perlis, Prof Madya Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin berkata, secara umumnya sesiapa sahaja boleh memohon doa kehancuran sekiranya merasakan diri dizalimi.

“Kita ada beberapa perkara yang perlu dipisahkan, isu politik dan fakta, jangan kerana kerana kita berpolitik, kita menafikan fakta.

"Pertama, persoalannya, adakah boleh kita mendoakan orang yang menzalimi kita agar ALLAH SWT mengambil tindakan kepadanya, itu persoalan yang biasa, jangan letak pada Pas atau Umno.

“Misal kata ada orang menganiaya atau menzalimi kita, boleh ke kita berdoa kepada mereka?

"Jawapannya boleh, tidak timbul isu tidak boleh mendoakan kehancuran sesama Islam,” katanya kepada Sinar Harian pada Program Kembara Ilmu Bersama Dr Maza di kediaman rasmi Menteri Besar Kelantan, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, semalam.

dari Dailog Rakyat - Sejarah Durhaka

Jumaat, 15 Jun 2012



TAHUKAH anda tahun 1993 boleh dianggap Tahun Penuh Pendurhakaan Umno terhadap Raja-Raja Melayu?  Bagaimana jika kesemua kes pendurhakaan itu disemak semula dan diambil tindakan sepertimana kes-kes lama Azmin dan Anwar disemak semula?

Pada 18 Jan 1993, Pindaan Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang membolehkan Raja-Raja dibawa ke mahkamah.  Apabila Raja-Raja minta tangguh pindaan ini, maka media melalui BH bertarikh 19 Jan 1993 telah mengkritik secara terbuka salah laku Raja-Raja.

Lupakah kita pada 29 April 1993, di Ketereh, Kelantan di mana telah diadakan `pertabalan' Sultan Kelantan dilakukan pada ketika Sultan Ismail Petra masih di takhta.  Siapa tokoh Umno yang terlibat waktu itu?  Jika anda lupa, sila rujuk kepada Datuk Anuar Musa yang kini merasai `dizalimi' pula oleh FAM yang diterajui oleh Sultan Pahang.

Media BH bertarikh 11 Jun 1993, memetik kenyataan Shahidan Kassim tokoh Umno juga yang menyebut Sultan Kelantan tidak layak menduduki takhta.

Rahim Tambi Chik, sewaktu menjadi KM Melaka meminta agar panggilan `patik' yang digunakan sewaktu berkomunikasi dengan Sultan dihentikan, memadai dengan hanya menyatakan `Saya Tuanku".  Ungkapan biadap tokoh yang kontroversi dengan gadis bawah umur ini rakyat tidak dapat lupakan.  Rujuk kembali BH bertarikh 03 Feb 1993.

Siapa yang cabar Sultan Kelantan agar turun takhta?  Lupakah kita?  Berlaku pada tahun yang sama iaitu tahun 1993.  Zahid Hamidi yang tidak mahu ke Perancis sebagai saksi kes Scorpene, ini lah tokoh yang mencabar Sultan Kelantan, Sultan Ismail Petra turun takhta kerana beliau bukan waris yang sah, katanya.  Jika anda lupa, rujuk kembali BH bertarikh 11 Feb 1993.

Bapak segala penderhaka Raja iaitu Mahathir Kutty pula mendakwa Raja-Raja tidak henti-henti meminta daripada kerajaan.  Rujuk BH bertarikh 30 Jan 1993.  Media BH bertarikh 23 Jan 1993 pula telah mengaibkan Raja-Raja dengan tuduhan pesta arak di Istana dan perempuan-perempuan cantik.  Mengapa media ini terlalu berani?  Tidak lain tidak bukan adalah kerana pemimpin Umno waktu itu mengajarnya.

Sebenarnya, sebelum tahun 1993 lagi banyak kes pendurhakaan kepada Raja-Raja ini telah dilakukan oleh pemimpin Umno.  Saya tidak selesa untuk mengimbas kembali kisah-kisah terdahulu dari ini kerana ada di antara mereka yang telah meninggal dunia.  Sekadar sebagai ingatan kepada kita semua sejarah tidak boleh dipadam samasekali.

Tahun-tahun kebelakangan ini masih juga terdapat pemimpin Umno yang terang-terang menunjukkan pendurhakaan kepada Raja-Raja.  Kita masih ingat kisah di dalam persidangan agung Umno pun mereka menghentam Raja-Raja, contohnya pada tahun 1991 di mana Sultan Kelantan menjadi mangsa mereka.

Harta Raja-Raja diminta disiasat.  Siapa punya angkara?  Media telah mengaibkan Instusi Beraja dengan meletakkan di muka hadapan kehendak perwakilan Umno waktu itu.

Apakah tidak durhaka namanya melarikan Puteri Sultan untuk bernikah?  Cuba tanya kisah ini kepada mantan MB Selangor Muhamad Muhd Taib seorang pemimpin Umno.

Tentu masih segar di dalam ingatan kita, bagaimana cubaan hampir seluruh Wakil Rakyat Umno di Terengganu untuk memboikot Majlis Angkat Sumpah di Istana Terenganu bagi menabalkan Ahmad Said sebagai MB Terengganu.  Mereka mahu Idris Jusoh sebagai MB Terengganu selepas Pilihanraya Umum Tahun 2008.  Maka, didirikan banner tertulis perkataan " Kami Ngak Idris, Natang".  Apakah yang mereka maksudkan `Natang' itu?  Kepada siapa ditujukan?

Perlantikan MB Perlis juga begitu.  Lihat bagaimana Shahidan Kassim bertindak apabila Isa Sabu dipilih sebagai MB Perlis.

Terlalu sedikit di sini untuk dihuraikan kembali bagi menunjukkan hebatnya Umno menderhaka kepada Raja-Raja.  Terlalu jauh bezanya untuk dibandingkan dengan sekadar nasihat dan ingatan dari YB Nizar selaku rakyat biasa yang sayangkan Raja Melayu.  Umpama anak yang sayangkan bapanya, si anak akan sentiasa menegur bapanya kalau didapati bapanya tersilap laku.  Anak yang tidak sayangkan bapanya akan membiarkan bapanya melakukan apa jua dan si anak hanya mahu ampu dan bodek si bapa./

Bodoh nya Melayu

Petikan dari blog AK47:-

Ini artikel yang di tujukan khas kepada majoriti orang Melayu supaya kekal tidak menyokong parti fasis yang bernama UMNO. Ya- pembaca dengar tidak bersalahan- saya menggelarkan UMNO parti fasis yang menghamba-abdikan orang Melayu dan memperbudakkan dan membodohkan bangsa Melayu. Setelah 50 tahun ketika UMNO lemah, barulah pemimpin UMNO berkejaran memberi RM 500 seorang. Berapa ribu orang terpaksa beratur mendapatkan RM500 untuk menyamai harga cincin RM 74 juta? Berapa yang kena beratur mendapatkan RM 500 menyamai handbag Birkin Hermes?
Amat menakjubkan orang Melayu sanggup menerima RM 500 tapi melupakan kezaliman dan penganiayaan kerajaan UMNO keatas orang Melayu khususnya. Boleh kah kita ganti RM 500 seorang dengan penafian hak rakyat Kelantan yang majority nya orang Melayu mendapatkan royalty minyak? Minyak di jumpai di perairan Kelantan, tapi Kelantan di nafikan peluang membangunkan industri minyak dan gas di Tok Bali. Mahathir lebih rela menyalurkan minyak ke Songkhla Thailand dari Tok Bali. Jadi rakyat Kelantan , ambil RM 500 tersebut tapi jangan lupa kezaliman dan penganiayaan keatas kamu oleh UMNO dan BN.
Kenapa orang Melayu mahu lagi mendengar suara cemas seorang mamak padukang yang telah pun menyatakan UMNO busuk sampai ke usus? Mamak ini juga yang mengatakan bahawa pimpinan UMNO semua half past six dan pimpinan yang ada tongong dan bingung. Bolehkah negara kita di bangunkan oleh pimpinan yang tongong lagi bingung? Mana mungkin kita mahu percaya celoteh si mamak padukang ini? bolehkah kita percaya warga emas dan makcik serta pakcik yang menyertai gerakan Bersih 3.0 mahu menggulingkan kerajaan bukan secara demokratik?

Anwar Perdana Menteri seterusnya

Tuesday, 31 January 2012 21:25

Anwar Perdana Menteri seterusnya, adakah sesiapa yang tidak berpuas hati? Featured

Written by  Mathias Gomes, Stan Lee , Malaysia Chronicle
(5 votes)
Ayah saya pernah memberitahu kami supaya jangan takut akan psikosis apabila saya dan adik saya masih muda. Dia memberitahu kami, orang yang takut akan perkara-perkara yang bakal berlaku kepada mereka akhirnya akan berlaku juga -akhirnya. Mungkinkah ia karma?
Di Malaysia, bagi Umno dan kroninya, ia merupakan takut jika Anwar Ibrahim menjadi Perdana Menteri seterusnya. Dan semakin dekat kepada hari PU-13, takut kepada Anwar semakin meningkat. Kesemua Ali Ibrahim, Ezam Mohd Nor dan Hassan Ali bersedia untuk menghapuskan Anwar.
Malahan mereka juga mempertahankan kejatuhan NFC yang tidak dapat dipertahankan sebanyak RM250juta, dan tidak lama lagi mereka akan mempertahankan semua skandal rasuah, termasuk beg Birkin Rosmah Mansor dan cincin berlian bernilai RM24juta. Mengapa? Sangat mudah, ia semata-mata 'takut psikosis' yang sangat hebat terhadap Anwar Ibrahim.
Mengapa takut
Tetapi mengapa takut yang amat sangat? Lagipun, jika BN fikir ia melakukan perkara yang betul, sudah pasti rakyat akan menyokong dan memberikannya beberapa tahun lagi untuk memerintah. Maaf mengatakan, itu bukanlah senario hari ini. Rakyat telah bangun dari 54 tahun dimana mereka dipukau, mereka kini boleh melihat tipu daya BN dan UMNO.
Ia merupakan pemerintahan Pareto - 80% daripada rakyat Malaysia boleh merasakan kesan kehidupan seharian dalam poket mereka dan ia merupakan sakit yang tajam, manakala ahli-ahli perniagaan 20% dan UMNO elit yang hidup mewah menikmati harta rampasan.
Kebanyakan rakyat Malaysia yang berpendapatan mempunyai segala-galanya ditetapkan bagi mereka - pinjaman perumahan, pinjaman kereta, cukai pendapatan, potongan, penyelenggaraan keluarga dan yang paling penting, barang-barang makanan. Jika anda mempunyai kerajaan yang tidak menjaga kesejahteraan negara yang hanya merompak dan membunuh untuk tabung negara, tetapi meninggalkan rakyat tanpa apa-apa, di mana dan siapa yang boleh menolong rakyat?
Penyelesaiannya ialah perubahan
Perubahan adalah jawapannya. Rakyat sedang mencari perubahan dan ia merupakan perubahan yang besar. Semua petanda menunjukkannya, orang ramai tidak akan peduli jika Anwar adalah Perdana Menteri atau walaupun ia Karpal Singh, selagi ia adalah seorang yang akan menolong dan melegakan beban dalam poket mereka.
Rakyat memerlukan gaji yang cukup untuk terus hidup, dan kerajaan harus memastikannya.Rakyat Malaysia bukannya malas. Terdapat beberapa negara-negara di Barat di mana walaupun rakyat tidak bekerja, negara itu menyokong mereka dalam semua jenis skim, mewujudkan sebuah masyarakat yang malas. Di Malaysia semua orang bekerja untuk hidup, dan kerajaan harus mengucapkan terima kasih kepada rakyat untuk kerana itu.
Oleh itu, bawalah Mahathir Mohamad, Nazri Aziz, Ibrahim Ali, Ezam, Hassan, Ummi Hafilda, Zul Nordin dan semua orang bodoh UMNO yang lain dan kaki tangannya untuk menghapuskan Anwar Ibrahim. Kami tidak peduli, rakyat telah memutuskan "Perubahan" dan Anwar Ibrahim akan menjadi Perdana Menteri seterusnya.
Adakah sesiapa mempunyai masalah dengan itu?

Sebagaimana yang dijangka - Duit Lesap begitu sahaja.

Tajudin, Danaharta capai penyelesaian luar mahkamah
Bekas pengerusi eksekutif Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Tan Sri Tajudin Ramli dan Pengurusan Danaharta Nasional Bhd mencapai penyelesaian luar mahkamah berkaitan satu saman yang difailkan enam tahun lepas membabitkan hutang RM589 juta tokoh korporat itu dalam pembelian saham MAS.

Peguam Lim Kian Leong yang memaklumkan perkara itu kepada panel tiga hakim Mahkamah Rayuan, bagaimanapun tidak mendedahkan terma penyelesaian tersebut dan ia disahkan Tommy Thomas yang mewakili Danaharta.

Sehubungan itu, Lim berkata Tajudin berhasrat menarik balik semua rayuan terhadap Pengurusan Danaharta, dua anak syarikatnya serta 24 responden lain yang dinamakan dalam tuntutan balas beliau.

Hakim Datuk Seri Abu Samah Nordin, yang mengetuai panel itu, kemudian memutuskan untuk membatalkan semua rayuan berkaitan.

Selain itu, panel yang turut dianggotai Hakim Datuk Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad dan Datuk Alizatul Khair Osman Khairuddin, memerintahkan Tajudin membayar sejumlah RM15,000 kepada beberapa responden sebagai kos perundangan dan RM5,000 lagi kepada kerajaan Malaysia bagi prosiding di Mahkamah Rayuan.

Pengurusan Danaharta, Danaharta Urus Sdn Bhd dan Danaharta Managers Sdn Bhd serta pegawainya bagaimanapun tidak menuntut kos perundangan.

Terdahulu, Lim memaklumkan panel itu Tajudin dan Danaharta berjaya mengatasi semua permasalahan yang dihadapi kedua pihak berhubung terma penyelesaian.

Semalam, Mahkamah Rayuan membenarkan permohonan Lim untuk menangguhkan prosiding sehingga hari ini bagi membolehkan Tajudin dan Danaharta mencari penyelesaian berhubung 'masalah kecil yang muncul pada saat-saat akhir'.

Berbekalkan semangat penyelesaian luar mahkamah yang dicapai hari ini, Lim meminta semua pihak terbabit menanggung kos perundangan masing-masing bagi prosiding di Mahkamah Tinggi dan Mahkamah Rayuan.

Kecuali Danaharta, responden lain tetap mahukan Tajudin membayar kos perundangan mereka.

Pada 2009, Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur memerintahkan Tajudin membayar RM589 juta kepada Danaharta yang menguruskan pinjaman tidak berbayar akibat hutang yang ditanggung tokoh korporat itu dalam pembelian saham MAS.      

Jumlah itu merupakan baki pinjaman berjumlah RM1.79 bilion yang diberikan kepada Tajudin oleh sekumpulan peminjam bagi membiayai pembelian 32 peratus kepentingan dalam MAS pada 1994.

 Tajudin diperintah membayar jumlah asas pinjaman pada 31 Dis 2005 sebanyak RM589,143,205.57 serta faedah dua peratus atas kadar pemberian pinjaman asas Malayan Banking Bhd mulai 1 Jan 2006 sehingga tarikh penyelesaian penuh kes itu kepada Pengurusan Danaharta dan dua anak syarikatnya.

Mahkamah Tinggi turut membatalkan tuntutan balas Tajudin, yang berjumlah RM13.46 bilion, terhadap 24 responden termasuk Danaharta, dua anak syarikat serta pegawainya, Datuk Azman Yahya, Datuk Abdul Hamidy Hafiz, Datuk Zukri Samat dan Datuk Kris Azman Abdullah.

Responden lain ialah pentadbir khas Naluri Corporation Bhd iaitu Mohamad Raslan Abdul Rahman, Ooi Woon Chee dan Gan Ah Tee serta syarikat Telekom Malaysia Berhad, Telekom Enterprise Sdn Bhd, Technology Resources Industries Berhad, Celcom (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, Commerce International Merchant Bankers Berhad (CIMB), Atlan Holdings Bhd, Atlan Properties Sdn Bhd, Multi Esprit Sdn Bhd, Datuk Seri Adam Sani Abdullah, Datuk Ong Kim Hoay, Datuk Khalid Mohamad Jiwa, Datuk Ong Kar Beau, kerajaan Malaysia dan Naluri Corporation Berhad.

 Dalam penyataan tuntutannya, Tajudin berkata beliau diarah Perdana Menteri ketika itu Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad (kini Tun) membeli 32 peratus kepentingan dalam MAS bagi menyelamatkan Bank Negara yang mengalami kerugian dalam tukaran asing.

Pada prosiding hari ini, Lim turut memaklumkan mahkamah bahawa Tajudin kini dalam proses menyelesaikan beberapa kes lagi yang membabitkan rayuan beliau terhadap pihak lain termasuk Sistem Penerbangan Malaysia (MAS), yang akan didengar di Mahkamah Rayuan Khamis ini.

Lim berkata selepas kes saman antara Tajudin dan Danaharta berjaya diselesaikan, anak guamnya kini berharap perkara sama dapat dicapai dalam kes beliau yang lain.

Katanya, beliau akan mengemukakan permohonan untuk menangguhkan prosiding rayuan dalam kes berkaitan.
