About 20 years ago, I recall a family friend telling us how he had spent a fortune buying land in India & was building some houses there. He said it was fer the future so that he and more importantly his children would have somewhere to go. Perplexed by what he meant, I asked "Uncle, why would you want to move from here to India?"
"In this country we are a minority. You just never know when the majority will insist that everyone become Abdullah," reasoned Paranoid Uncle. I thought what an illogical thing to say. "This is Malaysia - peaceful & harmonious with freedom of religion fer all," I thought to meself; the scenario Paranoid Uncle described would never happen . . . not here.
Forward two decades & it would appear Paranoid Uncle isn't too far off the mark. Please follow link below to see a short documentary claiming that that scenario has already happened.
Now, this short film (Malaysia - At The Crossroads - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9zmRMoDt58 ) has been around fer quite some time. But the issues within remain hot topics as far as many Malaysians are concerned. If you are of a "sensitive"disposition or lack sufficient grey matter to hear out reasonably articulated views; do NOT watch it & please fooking piss off, you're in the wrong blog.
However, if you are concerned citizen of this nation, I urge you to view this short documentary. Fer those of you who still think Malaysia is paradise on earth (or in space?), please watch the vid & do think about the many questions it poses.
Fer starters, how can any Malaysian, especially non-bumis, NOT be angry after watching the vid? Those of you who say we are not being marginalised, please tell it to the grieving Hindu widow. As the film says, it was a show of power from the Muslim authorities to deny a national hero the proper last rites. This also proves it is incomprehensible that a non-Muslim could ever be viewed as a national hero in this land. And even our "astronaut" has been elevated to bringing pride to Muslims everywhere but lest we forget, all Malaysians had to fooking foot the massive bill. Go figure. I suppose serve all those stupid wankers who thought it a brilliant idea & believe me there are plenty!
Mob mentality rules here. Everything is an "insult to Islam". Article 11 meetings have been disrupted by the Mat "Osama is our hero" Jangguts. And their actions have been validated by our dear smiley, friendly, sleepy PM.
Listening to the mufti of Perak just fooking makes me blood boil as he openly says we risk "racial conflict" if we "disturb Islam". He goes on to contend that in this country the Chinese & the Indians "bully the Malays" as they are the rich & powerful in Malaysia. What fooking bollocks?!? What the fook is he talking about?!?
The unfortunate truth is too many Malaysians believe in the status quo while too many Malays actually believe we, the non-Bumis, are here to bully, colonise & enslave them! Even among the grumbling hordes in cyberspace I know of people have said they cannot be bothered to vote.
I said a long time ago during the previous administration's reign that the country will go down the toilet when someone else less powerful (& less intelligent) takes over from the Mighty Tun & fooking takes all the wrong/corrupt/chauvinistic practices as precedents set in fooking stone.
As fer all you teary-eyed nostalgists who wish the Mighty Tun was back in power, lest not forget, it was he who elevated the Syariah court to the position it is now. It is he who attempted to restrict the rights of non-Muslims to worship. It is he who fooking fooked up the fooking judiciary! It is he who put vanity projects & one-upsmanship as the yardstick to measure success (he builds twin fooking towers, current PM sends Dr Model into space). The list goes on . . .
Again, I stress although the language here might be a tad harsh, it is NO way meant to insult ANYONE'S religion. The comments are also NOT intended to be racist but merely reflective of the existing racist policies that have us living in fear. It is merely venting at the continuing marginalisation of people who have worked hard to make this country great & know of no other place as home . . .
PS: As usual all reasonably-minded Malaysians are invited to post their comments regarding the state of our beloved nation.
