Samy's Folly

Looks like those who want to answer my charges are short of ideas.

All they can say is that I am a racist and I was worse than the present Prime Minister.

Now Dato Seri S. Samy Vellu has joined Karpal Singh and Param Cumaraswamy in calling me racist.

These three characters want the Government to free the Hindraf leaders from detention under the Internal Security Act.

They must know that Hindraf represents Tamil racists who still look to their old masters, the British, to protect them. They don’t believe in Malaysian institutions.

And they speak not just of Indians but of Tamils as a separate race. They and their apologists are racist to the core.

Seeing the death and destruction inflicted on Sri Lanka by the Tamil Tigers, they threaten to bring this kind of violent racial politics to Malaysia.

In sympathising with Hindraf, Samy exposes his deep racist sentiments.

He insisted that he was the only leader of the Indians.

He refused to allow other Indian political parties to join the Barisan Nasional. His arrogance was unbearable. The defeat of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) is entirely because of him.

I will follow this with extracts of what Samy Vellu said when I was Prime Minister. You can then judge what kind of Indian the Indians have as their leader.

Dearest Tun,

It is official, Sammy Vellu is a clown who dressed in lalang. He gets itchy here and there. The fact is he has overstayed welcome and the people's verdict has been handed down to him during the last election. But, to be in the camp of Pak Lah, he has to join the gang of denial and that's exectly what he is doing. As for Param and Karpal, my word to them is popularity contest and for goodness sake, be sincere in what you are doing.

Keep up the good work, Tun.

Aiyah Tun,

Too late lah. You should have done something about Samy long time ago when you were in power. You should have, for eg, assisted Subra to take over. He is the loyal person.

But in power you were as corrupt - both power, moral and power wise - as Samy et al.

Too late to protest now Tun. Too, Tooo late. & also no point lah when you are put of power.

A leader's true self is measured by what he does/did while in power, not what he spouts after losing it.

Maaf ye Tun, for speaking the truth!

Tun,

You as the King of Racist, bestow Samy Vellu as racist! Blog something else lar . . . Old story lar . . .
Blog something like “ Would I Stay in Malaysia, If Anwar Ibrahim becomes PM” or “ I Would QUIT Being Malaysian, If Anwar Ibrahim becomes PM”. Since you like quitting when it's not your way. Now that will be something great to blog about.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, my friends at this office asked me, what is "Folly", and why Tun used the word "Folly" after "Samy's".

I told them, I do not know why Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad uses the word "Folly" after "Samy's".

However, I sense Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has wisely chosen this one word, and it is not easy for an individual like me to find a word to describe another individual aptly.

However, I do know, what "Folly" is.

In architecture, a folly is a building constructed strictly as a decoration, having none of the usual purposes of housing or sheltering associated with a conventional structure.

They originated as decorative accents in parks and estates.

"Folly" is used in the sense of fun or light-heartedness, not in the sense of something ill-advised.

More at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folly

The best part is, S Sammy Vellu, knows, I presume, what "Folly" is, and why from his perspective, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad uses "Folly" after "Samy's".

Eelamagan said...

If as you say Samy is a tyrant then it is all because of you since you allowed him to get away with practically murder. Moreover, look into the history of the struggle of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka before you condemn them as terrorists who are causing Sri Lanka untold destruction. Just look at the racist Singalese govt killing innocent Tamil people to which the entire world are just keeping quiet. The Tamils are a proud people and they are asking for equality and the buck stops there. The racist govt simply refuse to understand what the LTTE want on behalf of the TAamil people. Only the Norwegians seem to understand the plight of the Tamils. Read into the history of the struggle of the Tamil people before you pass judgement on the freedom fight by the LTTE.

samy as usual, always blame others but himself.typical samy vellu character.

Nik said...

Dear Tun,

Maaf ya Tun for saying that you have been a rather poor judge of Character!

SAMY VELLU has been your best of Buddies and you would never have said the things you said now when you were in power.
ANWAR IBRAHIM, you brought him into UMNO. Now see what happened.
ABDULLAH BADAWI, you trusted him to be the next PM, now see what is happening.
ERIC CHEAH, you entrusted him with Perwaja.
LINGAM, TENGKU MAHALEEL,and SO ON AND SO ON.
You are still persisting with Najib, Muhyideen and others of doubtful capability or character.
Please Contemplate deeply what you have done in the past rather than hitting out in anger at everone that criticised you, especially at your age now that the third noble truth will unfold.
I understand if do not wish to display this comment.

Tun,
Salam Sejahtera.

Saya ubah sikit pepatah dulu Tun,
Kalau saya jumpa ular atau Samy Vellu, saya pukul Samy Vellu dulu.

Lidah dia bercabang lebih dari ular!

HAJIMAN IBRAHIM said...

Ybgh Tun,
Kini apa kata pendekatan yang sedang dilakukan olih Karpal terhadap PM dibuat. Maksudnya, kempen sunguh sunguh supaya cerita berkisar konon nya Samy Velu bagus supaya dia lupa diri, nak terus kekal sebagai presiden, wal hal kaum nya dah naik muntah menghadap mukanya. Jadi akhirnya MIC akan punah.

Punca masaalah ni semua kerana melayu gila kuasa, dulu kerana nak jadi PM melayu bersetuju menerima pendatang ni jadi warga negara yang boleh mengundi menentukan pemimpin negara malaya. Sekarang AAB gila kuasa, sanggup mengadaikan semua keistimewaan melayu dan memenuhi semua tuntutan mereka, MB selangor kerana nak kuasa sangup serahkan exco pada mereka ...., kat Perak pun mcm tu...


Kita Melayu nak pemimpin macam TUN, macam Sadam, Fidel Castro, Ghadafi, yang ada ala ala kukubesi..


Ini dah kritikal ni.... jangan sampai terlewat

Zubli Zainordin said...

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, in using "Samy's Folly", you have found to be gentle.

However, in relations to S Samy Vellu, MIBA, might not be comparatively so gentle.

Because a Folly can soon or later turn into an "ai-yen-yee-pi-ti".

Samy Vellu has overstayed his welcome
P Sivakumar | Jun 18, 08 4:35pm

The Malaysian Indian Business Association (Miba) welcomes MIC President S Samy Vellu’s announcement to MIC members that he will not seek re-election as MIC president come March 2009 if members felt that there should be a leadership change.

Miba calls on the MIC members to rise to the occasion. It is not Miba’s intention to interfere in the affairs of the MIC. However, MIC and Samy have claimed that they not only represent their members but also the Indian community.

Thus, Miba is forced to be vocal on some areas of concern that need to be addressed in order for the community to move forward amidst new challenges.

A new leadership for the MIC will boost the party’s overall image with new plans, vision and mission at a point in the MIC’s history when the relevance of this 60-year-old party is at stake.

In terms of leadership, out of a scoring of 100, if any put Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in say 10, S Samy Vellu can easily be ranked 20.

So, if S Samy Vellu still prefers to support Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, allow not yourself to be lump together, a 10 point out of 100.

Because Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is truly "ai-yen-yee-pi-ti".

Hamdan said...

it is a big irony...samy held tun responsible for failing the indian community...to the best of my knowledge and memory, nothing of that sort of disgruntlement occurred when tun was the our country's ceo...the hindu tamils took to the streets under pak lah's reign of ignorance...

Assalamualaikum TUN & fellow Bloggers...

WHAT CAN WE SAY ABOUT SAMMY BESIDE HIS HAIR-DO STYLE AND HIS ATTIRE...

THE TIME HAS COME FOR HIM YET HE STILL MAINTAIN THAT HE WILL CONTINUE TO LEAD THE INDIAN AND MIC.

IT HIGH TIME NEW FACES TAKE STEPS AND LEAD MIC, SO AS FELLOW INDIAN ESPECIALLY THE LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME PROSPER TOGETHER WITH THE UPPER INCOME.

WHAT CAN WE SAY ABOUT KARPAL BESIDE BEING CALLED "THE TIGER OF JELUTONG" AND CHAMPION OF JUSTICE FOR THE CRIMINALS...

WHY THE SUDDEN SHOWS OF SUPPORT TOWARD DSAB? IS IT BECAUSE THAT PENANG WAS GIVEN TO DAP?

YES... I do agree with funtoosurf (main blog)... the way things happen nowadays, we are heading toward downfall. The worst part we can never achieve the vision 2020 objective and future generation all of race will have to bear it and suffer all.

And AI IS getting wild in his ambition and liberal poilitical vision whereas DSAB IS weak in administration and his leadership shows how weak he is. ONLY GOD knows where and which direction is DSAB heading.

Salam Tun,

Semasa HINDRAFT buat demonstrasi, mereka mengusung potret "Mahatma Ghandi" pemimpin India dinegara India. PELIK... Mereka taat pada siapa dan negara mana?. Kalau mereka dah ramai, penduduk pribumi pun tak akan dilantik jadi pemerintah (CTH : apa yg berlaku di negara Fiji, pemberontakan pribumi dipimpin oleh Lieutenant Colonel Sitiveni Rabuka.).

Wassalam

Azman said...

Samy Vellu ni dah tak ada taring baru la nak cakap pasal nak tolong bangsa sendiri. Semasa masih dipuncak lupa segala perjuangan utk bangsa beliau. Agaknya Pak Lah dah tak tau siapa lagi dia nak lagakan dgn Tun, dia boh saja Samy takde taring ni. Just imagine dulu sikit punya hormat (dan kecut) si Samy ni dgn Tun, skrg ni, political survival punya pasal, sanggup mengata bos lama dia sendiri.

luqiee said...

Greetings Che Det...

I do not think this matter is an issue of racism, instead it is an issue of survivals.

Remember those days, when and where you had become the Prime Minister, you were being called by names (E.g : Ultra- Malay), for your outspoken of behalf of the Malays survival. Yet... today this has turned out the manner, for as the Malaysian Indias now fighting for their own survivals.

Looking at the bright side, every races in this world are fighting to climb the latter of their own survivals, this are not matter of racism, but racism capitalis. As thoughts to this, we are actually in the capitalis traumatism. Richie Rich will be Richie Richer nor the stronger will survives in this era of Capitalism Globalisation.

The fact, or should i say the Essential of Life in this current era, those who want something has to put efforts on something, as nothing comes easy in this world. Everything has to be earned... by working towards each individuality goals.

Does they thinks, rain drops leaves money when it dries ??? The Malaysian Indians claimed that they are not getting enough for what supposed, but shall thye says, they didn't work hard to achieves to become an achiever.

To simplifies this, we all have our oppourtunity nor oppourtunity in life or in the society. Facts that you can't deny, whether that the Malaysian Indians put in efforts nor to strive up, or they just sat down under the "Ketapang" tree drunken and waiting for some miracle to happen ?

In reality of life, it doesn't works that way. As a modern proverb quoted : "No Pain, No Gain". Or in other means, No Efforts... No Glory.

Chaiiiittt,, that Samy Vellu and Karpal Singh cannot say about others as racist. Look at the Mirror, thou people are more racist than us. Wanna play with facts, you can tabulate some facts, so yet we can expose a yardfull of facts for thy people to see..

DR SURESH K said...

As expected my earlier candid and honest comment did not get published.Nevertheless I wish that all Malaysians will respect each other and be helpful to each other without any discrimination for the sake of our nation.
There is too much at stake,we cant afford to be left far behind our neighbours.Set aside all racist comments and think how to rebuild the nation.GOD BLESS MALAYSIA.

Dear Tun,
The racial remark and racial based activities were pioneered by your, pls regain your memory of your earlier days entering politics.We, the people in the street are more "MUHIBAH" then the politicians.
Talking about Hindraf, pls do not comment on them without knowing the core of the problem. Pls check, the 5 arrested under ISA are not Tamils 100% !! They are mixed of South Indians with different mother tongues NOT Tamils only. The Hindraf stands for all Indians. Do not link them with violence,It was the Gov caused all the problem. As Tun always say, "find the root of the problems before finding solutions",did anyone try to?

Manivannan said...

Dear Tun

I reserve my comments you made on Hindraf, the tamil racists and LTTE. But i truly hope that you have made some research before making such a remark, quoting how u use to say " every allegation must be backed by substantial proof".

Pulau

I see that you have understood so much about Indian like you had an Indian living inside you house for many donkey years and got played out.

Remember when you judge you are also being judged and you must be also willing to hear that as well if you want your voice to be heard...

So pls tell me which point Indians have made you feel not trustworthy.

If the Malay ancestors and ruler had been a better control over the country; the country would not be lost first to the penjajah and later to the pendatang like how you seem to think. You can blame your own ancestors ( if you the native) if you think the Indians or the Chinese in Malaysia cannot be trusted like the snake you were saying. And why Indians are in Malaysia ask the British Government to get the answer.

And remember; that thanks to few Malay ppl with Indian ancestry who gave their lifetime to the upliftment of the Malays; the Malays are enjoying what they are getting today. those ppl i mention could be in UMNO; dead or left UMNO ( temporarily).

So you can call all of the SNAKEs too or atleast have half of their blood.

Pulau; in conclusion you comment are also insulting the owner of this blog.

And finally from the comments i can say that our Malaysian still "BUTA" about reality of events and thats why we are so gullible and made to believe and accepts many redicolous things.

blueoceon said...

Dear Che Det,

I wish you well.

I am a racist. I believe somehow all of us are. Even the USA, where equality is being preach regulary, is a racist country. Racist between black and white, etc.
In Malaysia, many top level position in companies are held by chinese. I do not have any statistic but from my observation this is true. Sometimes it is hard to get promoted or good jobs simply because of one's race. In Singapore, they are racist society. They prefer Chinese to other race - Malay or Indian.

But this doesn't mean that I can't live in harmony with other races. Ah Yong and Moorthy are one of my best friends. We respect our differences and enjoy our similarity. Racist doesn't equals to hatred.

Afterall admitting one's fault is better then living in denial.

Thank you Tun, for the DEB, for it has benefitting many individuals, including myself. I was born without a silver spoon, in fact no spoon at all. Thank you for the peluang and with hard work,now my family can enjoy a better life then before.

Till then, take care.

Zubli Zainordin said...

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, saya pun belum tahu sangat isu HINDRAF ini, namun InsyaAllah, saya akan kaji.

Apa yang saya perhatikan dan yang saya nampak, ialah bagaimana S Samy Vellu menangani isu HINDRAF.

Yakni sebelum dan selepas PRU 12.

Yakni lagi, sebelum dan selepas kekalahan S Samy Vellu di kerusi sebagai Ahli Parlimen Malaysia.

Saya kata, S Samy Vellu, tidak patut!

Pertama, sebelum PRU 12 dan kekalahannya, S Samy Vellu, menemplak HINDRAF sebagai suatu jawak, dan tuntutan mereka hanyalah sekadar suatu komedi belaka.

Sepertilah dalam budaya Barisan Nasional dan laziman kementerian dan jabatan kerajaan, individu yang bongkak, sombong, dan tidak ada ruang untuk pendapat selain polisi mereka sahajalah yang betul.

Shahrir Samad dan Zaid Ibrahim pun sudah sertai budaya ini. Oh, Ismail Sabri Yaakob juga.

Kini, selepas PRU 12, dan kekalahan S Samy Vellu di Sungai Siput, dan post-mortem MIC, barulah S Samy Vellu tersedar.

Pun begitu adakah kesedaran ini membuat S Samy Vellu memikul tanggungjawab dan mengaku mahu meletak jawatan dengan segera?

Kita sudah pun tahu. Tudingan jarinya fulamak!!!

Pun begitu, I prefer continuous postings on this, for example "Samy's Folly" Part 2.

Jika pun kemudiannya sama banyak dengan jumlah "snippets", tidaklah mengapa, lebih dari itu pun tentunya akan memanfaatkan kami semua mempelajari dan memahami S Samy Vellu sebagai seorang daripada pemimpin di Malaysia.

DIASPORA said...

Both the Tun and Dato Samy are behaving childishly - even if they are playing politica to the masses. In the process they are belittling themselves as though the amount of belittling that they have gone through is not sufficient for now. History will have such a great confusion in years to come attempting to decipher the 'roles' that both the Tun and Dato Samy played in this Nation's destiny.

The Tun has Malayalee blood. Dato Samy has Tamil blood. BUT the Valiant Five who remain unde ISA are NOT Tamils. They are a distinct community called TELEGUS with different languages; cultures; habits and customs. All they did - as Lawyers are expected to do - was to take up the cudgel in the interests of the Malaysian Indian Tamils.

The sri Lankan Tamils are a different lot. They have little in common with the Indian Tamils and it would be fool hardy for them to think of helping the Indian Tamils when every single Ceylon Tamil in malaysia and all the countries they have dispersed to are holding high salaries jobs in various fields and have no need to waste time on the problems of the Indian Tamils whom they generally look down upon.

HINDRAF is a creature of the TELEGUS first. The Tamils are the scape goats who have now found their Saviors. There is little likelihood that HINDRAF is going to disappear from the scebe when Anwar himself seems to chant "MAKKAL SAKTHI" in his greetings to the swelling crowds.

In the light of all these happenings and racial differences it would do a lot of good for this country if the Tun dan Dato Samy kept their untrustworthy mouths shut.

Salam Tun. "His arrogance was unbeareable" you said.Then Tun why do you keep appointing Dato'Seri S.Samy Vellu as your cabinet minister?Beside being the MIC President,what criteria is needed to be appointed as a cabinet minister.Isn't your prerogative as a PM to appointting a cabinet minister? Do the Malaysian Indian suddenly dislike DSSSV after your tenure as PM ended and all the indian votes goes to the opposition and MIC lost?
On HINDRAF,they have "over acted" in becoming the heroes,but their 'overacting' became popular among the ignorant just like tamil films heroes.

studio said...

Hindraf claims that they have been a victim of systematic ethnic cleansing by the Government in this country. Funny. I have yet to see or even read news reports on a single incident here where eggs or rocks have been thrown against an Indian walking down the street, something which I know personally happens at least in the UK and Germany.

By equating themselves to people who actually ARE being ethnically cleansed, Hindraf is guilty of trivialising and making a mockery of the suffering of the millions in South Africa, Bosnia, Croatia and Rwanda.

But then what do you expect? Hindraf probably has the stupidest lawyers in Malaysia as their leaders. (Lawyers who either have never heard of or don;t know how to use a fax machine, no less). If you ask me, the Government is doing Hindraf members and Indians in Malaysia a big favour by detentioning these leaders; the people need to be protected from cartoon characters who can and promise to do actual harm in the real world.

I still don't understand why the Malaysian Government doesn't just give Hindraf members what they have been asking for all along: to be exterminated by the Government.

At least then we'll be saving them from the sin of lying.

wow TDM, one of your ardent followers has turned against you - how do you feel being betrayed? Well I guess you won't recognise the "Samy Velu" in you. Both of you held your positions within your party and Government with an intention of only benefitting you. Now that you're both "out of office", I guess it's time to get the dirty linen out on each other.
You know what the outcome will be -both of you will highlight each other's inadequacies. I will look forward to your continued slurs and exhanges as will all Malaysians! Please don't hold back both of you.

Dear Tun,

Agreed with u, saya rasa tak lama lagi BN pun akan jadi mcm PAS.

Sekarang ni saya rasa diorang dok gelakkan BN pulak..

Bila takda isu, buat isu mengarut yang bodoh.. Macam la kami, yang membesar atas didikan Tun,yang telah Tun trained dari kecik supaya jadi bijak pandai ni,jadi bodoh sangat.. Lain la diorang tu. Boleh saya kategorikan diorang ni berfikiran Orthodox???

Sebagai orang Malaysia, saya rasa malu lah ada pemimpin yang pendek akal. Lain kali kalau nak accuse ke nak timbulkan issue ke, buat la yang isu yang hebat2 dengan bukti yang concrete Dato Samy..

Ayoyoyo.. Ammaa Appaaa..

Dear Tun,

Samy never allowed any other Indian based party in Barisan Nasional. KIMMA and IPF are examples that I can think of. He personally engineered the destruction of the indian community in Malaysia. Samy the sore looser!

Tun Fatimah said...

Dear Tun,

Its seems that everyone have given their piece of mind about racist card. One malay says that we are all racial, another chinese says that we are living in an aparthied kind of country during your era affirming his "white" friend comment that we honor Malays more than other races. And Datuk Sammy, he's just a desperate man.

The truth is, Tun, they still dont understand why we can live together for more that 4 decades. And when we write with due respect we should be writing in a more appropriate manner not to hurt everyone.

These samy, karpal singh and the rest, they are politician, this is the way they survived by lying and hipocrachy. Just they way yang amat saya hormati Datuk Seri Abdullah eyeing on you at the last OIC meeting during your last year of tenure. Full of anger and revenge and waiting for the right time to make a move. Dont you see it.. I must admit this... it's cleary in his eyes.

Ikhlas..

Hai Tun, Apa Khabar?
well said. Being an Indian, im sick of listening the lies of SV and the gang particularly MIC.

One thing Tun,
can you reveal the truth behind the abolishment of "south Indian Labour Fund" in 1990's.

I belief you know what happen to those funds. I heard (hearsay) that Billion of Ringgits. Is it correct?

Eventhough i dont fully agree with HINDRAF i think the have a point on their part. All their facts are seems to be true.

We indians want to know.

Dear Tun,

Saya rasa tak perlu dirisaukan Samy Vellu kerana apa yang Tun katakan itu betul..Yang saya harap ialah Tun dapat hayati komen-komen yang saya rasa memanggil agar Tun menjauhkan diri dari membuat racist remark. Terdapat lebih dari 700 komen semasa blog Tun bertajuk “Racial Card” termasuk saya sendiri yang amat mengetahui bahawa Tun tidak racist . Saya amat berharap agar Tun meluangkan masa membaca komen-komen tersebut kerana agak mengecewakan bila Tun dituduh buat kali kedua..Semacam Tun tidak memperdulikan apa yang kami tuliskan…Di sini saya sertakan semula komen saya dan komen dari pembaca bergelar pemikir rasional. Dari beratus-ratus komen itu, saya kira saya dan pemikir rasional bersependapat mengenai perlunya mengajak kaum sendiri berdayausaha tanpa membuat andaian pandangan serong kaum lain.

Pemikir rasional : (dipetik dari tajuk blog “Openness”)
“Orang bukan Melayu tak pernah buat hal kalau kebajikan orang Melayu dibincangkan.
Malah, ini adalah sesuatu yang wajib, bahawa kebajikan orang Melayu terjaga, sepertimana kebajikan orang bukan Melayu juga harus dijaga.
Cuma Dr. Mahathir, di samping mengulas mengenai kebajikan dan hak orang Melayu, mendakwa bahawa orang bukan Melayu sudah melebih-lebih dan memijak atas kepala orang Melayu.

Di sinilah silapnya Dr. Mahathir.

Ya, mari kita bangunkan rakyat negara kita dan bela hak dan kebajikan mereka. Hak dan kebajikan orang Melayu harus dijaga!
Tapi, kenapa pula nak tambah-tambah lagi dan dakwa benda yang tidak benar dan menghasut seolah-olah orang bukan Melayu itu musuh orang Melayu?
Ini dia kata-kata dan sikap yang harus kita kikis.

Di sinilah silap dalam hujah Dr. Mahathir.
Harap para pembaca sekalian faham.
Sekian”

"I am alarmed that you have again been potrayed as a racist following your speech at your weekend trip to teluk intan. The last time this happen, I stood by you, in fact, I posted a comment defending you as not a racist BUT in reality I could not reply to my friends as to why you must choose to state "non-malays will drive the malays out". I think that statement did carry a racist and unfriendly notion. To be honest, I myself have made a few racist remarks in my life but in no way am I a racist person BUT I am a nobody.

The point is, I realise that for you Tun, every malaysian would not want to hear any racist notion from you at all, be it a single line out of the ten thousand lines of your speech. That's how people in malaysia look up to you.

With this recent episode, I am left feeling extremely uncomfortable and I pledge that you let us read the full text of your speech at your blog. I guess reading snippets of the speech without understanding the full context is not on for me and most malaysians…”

Dear Tun ,
I would be glad to read more mind boggling issues that has put Malaysia in the lime light.To me , Samy has been a curse for the majority Tamil community in Malaysia.Many non-Tamils including me in Malaysia do not subscribe to MIC's primitive and cast based politics. This answers the 'million dollar' question why non-Tamils do not associate themselves with MIC. Tamils would have fared better if they were put under the guidance of some ' bright sparks' after post Merdeka days. This also explains why many non-Tamils in Malaysia are doing better than the ever problem saddled Tamil community in Malaysia.

I am very proud to be the 1st Malaysian Indian in the world to have a Japanese Elevator License but shame to say that all the Indian Leaders in this country failed to help me in my carrier. As long as their pockets is full, they are happy they dont care about anyone. Tun should have sacked the MIC mastermind when TUN were the PM.Its too late now. Nasi dah jadi bubur. However we are with you TUN. God is with you too.

Assalamualaikum

WASTED YEARS

From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
I'm travellin' on, far and wide
But now it seems, I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn't me but
someone else

I close my eyes, and think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ain't it funny how it is, you never miss it 'til it's
gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be 'til my
dying day

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for
those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can't ease this pain, so easily
When you can't find the words to say it's hard to
make it through another day
And it makes me wanna cry and throw my
hands up to the sky

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for
those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

[Solo]

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for
those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years
[Repeat]

IRON MAIDEN/SOMEWHERE IN TIME

THANKS TUN!!

Assalamulaikum Tun.

Depa kata Tun racist tapi depa duduk dalam satu bumbung dan berjuang menikmati kemakmuran bersama. Depa tak kata Pak Lah racist tapi komen tak percaya pada Pak Lah walaupun sebumbung.
Persaan manusia memang sentiasa tak puas dan hanya tunggu masa sahaja nak komen ak puas hati.
Kenapa Samy tak komen masa dengan Tun dan terus puji kerajaan BN masa tu? Sebab dia Samy menikmati untuk dia dan dia kira ibarat raja kalau dia pi India. Sekarang ni bila dia tak ada dalam kabinet dan Tun bukan lagi PM, Samy pun cerita lah apa dalam benak dia dari dahulu. Perkara ni biasa.
Contoh kita dah perhati dalam hal Iraq. Masa Sadam semua kaum dapat hidup selesa walaupun ada yang tak puas. Bila rakyat dia yang tak puas hati undang orang luar masuk, baru depa tahu langit tinggi rendah. Sekarang ni, lagi depa tak puas hati. Padan dengan muka depa.

dah adat resam manusia...jika orang itu ada kuasa, pembodek akan memberi sanjungan melangit ... tetapi bila orang itu dah pencen seperti tun...pembodek itu bertukar menjadi manusia pengutuk yang hina dina, yang hilang maruah diri dan lupa jasa orang lain terhadapnya selama ini kerana gilakan kuasa yang telah hilang...

Princess said...

Tun kept Samy, because for the most part he was a dull, dim witted.. but loyal lapdog and had enough charisma to keep the Indians and their interests at bay. But is it Tun's fault? No.. if the Indian's wanted a better man to represent them.. they could have stood up long ago. Power of the people by the people knows no limitations. We only have ourselves to blame for letting this fool represent Indian interests.

Reformation said...

Dr. M, I totally agree that Samy Vellu is hopeless leader. I do agree he is racist.

This is fact is also true with respect to you. You did not allow the concept of Bangsa Malaysia to grow, and you kept on harping Malay rights without taking the interest of all the races. This leaves you as a racist too.

I guess all politicians are as sly as foxes including you.

As much you have developed Malaysia physically, you have raped the country off its morality and ethics.

TPM said...

In this Country, almost all politicians are racists in one way or another.
UMNO politicians have always talked about Malays, Malay Supremacy and at the same time,admitting Malay backwardness (that's why the NEP should continue forever).
MIC politicians have always talked about Indians,Indians and Indians,anything but the rights of Indians.So where do you think our dear Samy stands?
MCA politicians have always about the Chinese, but it is appreciated that MCA politicians have also assisted other races (Malays & Indians included), usually the poor, to solve their problems.And in terms of welfare donations,MCA politicians get my vote, compared with UMNO & MIC's.
Of course,DAP seems racist but then they are talking about the oppressed section of our community who are left out due to the quota system.In fact, the DAP has been speaking up for all oppressed rakyat, irrespective of races.
But then, all are considered racists because races are involved. I wait for the day when Malaysian politicians talk about MALAYSIANS instead of Bumiputras, Malays, Chinese, Indians, etc

Kalai said...

Tun, How can u call ppl supporting hindraf are racists. Let me tell u how racists is perceived. Who have been championing causes for their own races the most?? its u.. u are still in the old mindset. USA is in the verge of having a black as the president..can u see their mentality. and see urs.. we dont have to talk about having a non-bumi PM, just the idea of having equal rights bothers u. ur scared of the malay race.most of my malay frens are not. they want a level play field, they are confident of themselves.. ur making them scared nowdays by coming up with statements in the media. now who is racist?? im not pro samy..he is an oppurtunist, just wana get back to politics by any means..u know that..and im sure everybody knows that..so he is not a racist...just a normal politician trying to hang on by coming up with statements which he thinks will help him gain the indians support. I am very sad, because u were my idol and the things u say nowdays doesnt seem to be real...u make it sound like ur desperate.. why Tun?? wat are u scared of??

poobalan said...

Tun,

There's a proverb in Tamil that roughly means "a calf that joins a pig group will also eat shit".

as we rakyat listen to you guys fight like kindie kids, only one thing comes to my mind - never trust politicians. today friend, tomorrow enemy.

you guys were together for more than 2 decades. just imagine the amount of good and bad things you have done in cohort/coperation with each other.

when the blame game starts, there's no winner.

in my opinion, you are as equally guilty as samy vellu, if not more, for tolerating him and his brand of politics all this while.

you have betrayed the indian community by doing so.

but of course, what to expect, you are after all, just a politician.

Terong said...

Assalamualaikum Tun,

Bagi saya, kerajaan sebelum Pak Lah telah menjalankan tugasnya terhadap rakyat tapi Tun sebagai PM buat masa itu tidak dapat mengawal semua tindak tanduk parti component BN sebab Tun terpaksa delegate kepada ketua2 parti.
MIC mendapat apa yang mereka mintak tetapi terpulang kepada Samy & MIC untuk mengagihkan kepada masyarakat India. Kesannya sekarang, memang ada masyarakat India Malaysia yang maju dan memang ada yang tercicir.... Cuba fikirkan mengenai persoalan ini;
1) Adakah ada dikalangan masyarakat India Malaysia yang dah maju menolong masyarakat India apabila mereka dah berjaya?
2) Adakah mereka hanya bekerja untuk MIC hanya untuk membuncit perut mereka sendiri?
3) Masih adakah perasaan 'kasta' dalam masyarakat India Malaysia hari ini?
4) MIC ada Maika Holding tetapi kenapa ianya selalu bergolak dan dipersoalkan oleh masyarakat India sendiri?

Dari apa yang terjadi, adakah semua ini kena dipertanggung jawabkan kepada PM?

Masyarakat India Malaysia sendiri yang salah kerana mereka tidak dapat menjatuhkan Samy dari mengetuai MIC. Kalau PM yang jatuhkan Samy dari MIC mesti keadaan akan lebih teruk lagi kerana PM mencampuri urusan dalaman parti MIC.

So? Sesetengah kita menuduh Tun mengarah BPR jangan bertindak kepada sipolan itu dan ini.... tetapi bagaimana jika siatan sedang dijalankan orang itu sendiri yang sogok pegawai BPR... adakah Samy tak berkemampuan untuk berbuat begitu?

Jadi... jangan senang nak salahkan orang lain diatas kelemahan puak sendiri!!!

Hindraf are speaking for those who have been forgotten by you and those alike.
Do you know that a recent article stated that poor Indian families are feeding their babies diluted condense milk & rock sugar water because they have no money to buy infant formulas because the price has almost doubled over the past 3 years. When I mentioned this to my wife, she asked me if it was in India.
Who speaks for those who are forgotten? You?
Have a heart.
Don't try to create a LTTE smoke screen.
By the way, I am not a Tamil.

nationalist said...

kehadapan ayahanda tun, pejuang rakyat..

"They must know that Hindraf represents Tamil racists who still look to their old masters, the British, to protect them. They don’t believe in Malaysian institutions."

saya setuju tun, hindraf mmg racists apabila hanya memperjuangkan kaum India. Kenapa nak perjuangkan India saja? Bukannya warga India dimayalsia ni tertekan. Lihat saja polisi dan sistem malaysia ini. Sistem pendidikan yg adil kepada semua kaum. Kuota masuk universiti yg 'adil' bagi setiap kaum di malaysia. lagipon India bukan kelas paling miskin dimalaysia. Perlembagaan maalaysia sgt boleh diharap dan sgt adil!

lihat saja UMNO, ianya parti tidak racist kerna mereka perjuangkan nasib rakyat pelbagai kaum iaitu kaum melayu, melayu dan melayu. Lihat saja ketika hisham mejunjung keris dulu, ianya bukan tanda juangkan melayu, ianya tanda perjuangkan pelbagai kaum

UMNO tidak racist!

sekian

Manivannan said...

Dear fellow Malaysians

Lets have some guts here to face the reality; we are the victim of our own inaction and gullibleness.

I guess Tun wrote this article in defense of the allegation thrown by his old buddy Uncle Sam. Thats his right and and also would be Sam's right if he decide to rebutt.

And we Malaysian have raised up like hero coming in defense in a "buta-tuli" way not kwowing why this argument has come.

My dear friend from BN or ardent supporters of racism who is reading; pls go back to your own house and clean your backyard before posting your comments.

Samy Vellu is a history; he is there because the system of undemocracy he has adapted from UMNO into MIC ( good! that can both die together); thats why he can still talk and as they say they will swim and sink together and very likely they are going to sink.

And those who want to argue the old tagline called Ketuanan-ship can start going to kelas Tadika and educating them. They are the one who gonna sit and watch you. The rest will hear but not listen

Thanks Tun for posting

Assalamualaikum Tun,

Sammy sudah sangat terdesak. Sila bongkar kisah-kisah jenayah Sammy semasa dia memegang jawatan Presiden MIC. Kes pembunuhan oleh anaknya terhadap gadis India, Melayu dan juga ahli-ahli MIC yg kena bakar rumah mereka bila memberi pandangan yang berbeza ataupun kurang sehaluan dengan kehendak ketua mereka.

Let see, who will grilled first.

Wassalam.

Dear TUN,

Keep on blogging, don’t you ever stop to give a comment because for me,i'm always "thirsty" with your great ideas and all of the people who are irritated with DSAB & co out there.

I don’t want to comment about Schomi because everybody already knew what was happened behind there but i "extremely" moved to comment about this arrogant people,Samy Velly a.k.a Hindu's hero(he think la..not for me, never!. I've one question exclusively to you Mr.Samy Vellu, how can you say that you had developed and improved your race successfully? sorry to say..you still fail to achieve all of it because so many hindus are still present at poor level out there especially in estate and village. I'm not a racist but its a fact Mr.Samy.

Last but not least, please don't create a statement with said that all of the problems today is caused by TUN.You want to cover up your weakness but you are totally failed actually. Maybe you don't know whose your opponent right now because you also sleep like your "boss"..hehe!

Fight for your right and we are always with you TUN!HIDUP TUN!!!

p/s:for antimamak and pj, don't try to "berlagak macam bagus" but you don't know anything actually.such a shame!!you are the liability of this country...please go!!

Veej said...

Dear Dr Mahathir, whilst it is obvious that Samy Vellu is seeking cheap publicity (after having ridiculed Hindraf while he was still in power), it is also clear that your views of HINDRAF are also distorted. How can you equate children carrying roses to parliament with suicide bombers in Sri Lanka? The entire Barisan Nasional system of politics is racist in nature, so stop the finger pointing. Wake up Dr Mahathir, and if you can't, just shut up, with all due respect.

Dinesh said...

Tun.. as much as i respect ur views.. i would like you to get your facts right about ltte before could place it on your blog.... do you know the history of tamils residing in sri lanka? and if the govt have proof that hindraf has any sort of links with ltte just bring it on... because talk is cheap.. you guys at the gov is good at accusing only.... PROOVE IT

Ghajini said...

Greetings to fellow Malaysians

Disclaimer: I am not here to gain popularity or expect special attention from the Tun. Just want to point out something from what I observed here. No offense to anybody.
Wow. I can't imagine how crude people can be. From the looks of it, most of the comments here have the potential to cause a racial uproar. From comments such as using skin color for comparison to those which uses hostile sayings. How different do you think, you are from those 'racist' politicians? How far are you from those who talk on baseless accusations? They say 'easier said than done’. My point is, before you lash out words from your mouth (or in this case, what you type), point the finger to yourself and ponder “What I have done to make this a better world?". Have you ever thought about those who suffer, despite 'what colored skin they are'? (I wonder why we are able to see colors if colors can cause so much disagreement)If you claim that the government is not doing what it should, how are you helping it? Just by typing offensive comments that you think can get you popularity, will not feed those at Lorong Bendahara di Jalan Langgar, Alor Setar. Most of us just say that 'The government should take care of them', instead helping those people by contacting the Welfare Department and fill out the documents. So, before you call the teapot black, scrape off the rust from your back first. For those who done, doing and will do great things, kudos to you. And for the rest of u, today can be a start. Putting some coins into tea cups doesn't help much, you know. Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.

Hello Tun , what prove you have to say Hindraf applying Tamil Tigers'(Sri Lanka) approach ? Prove it else SHUT UP !
There was rumour that you have tons of cash in Israel Bank and you denied. How we know if you are not the liar ?? Dun think whatever you say is true . The 455 commentors here are too dumb to realize this . Fortunately there're some 'brains' in Malaysia which can define right and wrong.

Basil said...

You were part of BN that you built.Don't blame anyone else.You did all this under your 22 year rule.Everyone else just came into the picture.If the internet in 1998 was as good as now, BN would have lost the country in year 2000 election because of you.You may be a great builder of infrastructures not people.Our national sports,national unity,national confidence in the judiciary all seems to be going down the drain.If what you built was so solid in nature then why the sudden fall?You may have known us malaysians for a long time, bear in mind malaysians know you as well.

UnRacial said...

Here you go again Tun, don't put Hindraf and the Tamil Tiger's in the same league neither should you put Samy Vellu as a supporter of Hindraf, he is merely trying to win back his support from the Indians as you are trying to do with the Bumi's. After all i consider all of you racists to the core. How many generations have you created to become racists? Do you know or you still wish to pursue the racist card with all your readers and create another generation. We are all Malaysians regardless of Race and Religion, squeeze that through your 3 pounder brain instead of blaming others for their mistakes. After all you are no Saint.

giri said...

tun,as a human i respect you more than anyone but as a citizen i think your thinking and concentration is all on one community.when you were in power you could simply ousted samy from cabinet due to not performing well,same as done to DSAI.It's still not too late if you can instill or fight for BANGSA MALAYSIA instead of for one community only cause malaysia is still the best country in the world

zainal mokhtar said...

Sami is a goner, that's why he's trying to glean and scrape whatever he can from the gutter to piece together any semblence of credibility to show to his particular type of Indians.This is to differentiate him from my many Indian friends who are often critical but never racist.He should have said all these when he was contesting all those previous elections that he could only have won with the help of Malay votes. We could have chucked him and his toupee right there and then.

P.Sugumaran said...

ABOUT RACIST POLITICIAN

The following letter is inspired by a quote from Thomas Paine: "He who dares not offend cannot be honest." Let us note first of all that racist politician claims to have data supporting its assertion that its vices are the only true virtues. Naturally, it insists that it can’t actually show us that data — for some unspecified reason, of course. My guess is that it’s hiding something. Maybe it’s hiding the fact that it’s a psychologically defective organization. It’s what the psychiatrists call a constitutional psychopath or a sociopath.

If we briefly prescient from the main point of this letter we can focus on how the term "idiot savant" comes to mind when thinking of racist politician. Admittedly, that term applies only halfway to it, which is why I think that racist politician has vowed that any day now it’ll corrupt our youth. This is hardly news; racist politician has been vowing that for months with the regularity of a metronome. What is news is that I wish I didn’t have to be the one to break the news that it has the brains of a house plant. Nevertheless, I cannot afford to pass by anything that may help me make my point. So let me just state that in order to solve the big problems with racist politician we must first understand these problems, and to understand them, we must fight on the battleground of ideas for our inalienable individual rights.

If you understand that racist politician is incapable of rational thought about the real world, then you can comprehend that racist politician’s faculty for deception is so far above anyone else’s, it really must be considered different in kind as well as in degree. Racist politician and I disagree about our civic duties. I maintain that we must do our utmost to rub its nose in its own hypocrisy. Racist politician, on the other hand, believes that it has the mandate of Heaven to wipe out delicate ecosystems. It is imperative that all of us in this community show you, as dispassionately as possible, what kind of satanic thoughts racist politician is thinking about these days. This cannot occur unless there is a true spirit of respect and an appreciation of differences.

As I remove the veil of ignorance I have lived behind, I find that some of the facts I’m about to present may seem shocking. This they certainly are. However, when I observe racist politician’s cheerleaders’ behavior, I can’t help but recall the proverbial expression, "monkey see, monkey do". That’s because, like it, they all want to inflict more death and destruction than Genghis Khan’s hordes. Also, while a monkey might think that it’s inappropriate to teach children right from wrong, the fact remains that it has gotten away with so much for so long that it’s lost all sense of caution, all sense of limits. If you think about it, only an organization without any sense of limits could desire to form the association in the public’s mind between any communications it disagrees with and the ideas of hate and violence and illegality.

All of these things are related: isolationism, racist politician’s press releases, and the general breakdown of our society. I’ll even tell you how they’re related. It’s really very simple. In essence, for the nonce, racist politician is content to pursue a twofold credo of obstructionism and negativism. But by the next full moon, it will foster suspicion — if not hatred — of "outsiders". While there is no evidence that people are looking for answers, not ideology, it is clear that if racist politician had its way, schools would teach students that all it takes to solve our social woes are shotgun marriages, heavy-handed divorce laws, and a return to some mythical 1950s Shangri-la.

This is not education but indoctrination. It prevents students from learning about how if racist politician wants to provoke terrible, total, universal, and merciless destruction, let it wear the opprobrium of that decision. In closing, I consider this letter to be required reading for everyone who still cares that we must steer clear of simplistic, mono casual explanations and mythic bogeymen. Unfortunately, with our nation’s media being as controlled as it is, there’s no way that this letter will be widely publicized. Therefore, I’m counting on you to pass on this letter to all of your e-mail contacts. Thank you.

2x5 saje. you had failed to create satu Bangsa Satu negara. No point trying to be hero now by pointing finger to another. Today DSAI getting the support because he think and talk like human. he dont talk about race and religion as he did last time, but to develop the nation for all and all for one.
Semoga tuhan melanjutkan usia Tun untuk melihat satu M'sia yang aman dan makmur tanpa persaingan antara kaum dan bangsa.

Samy the thick skin fella always talks big. He does not deserve to call others racist as he is most racist himself. Better resign for good.

no comment on samy but if you label Hindraf as rascist, so are you.Hindraf never demanded anything extreme. They only demanded what's rightfully be accorded to the indians but denied by people like you. Shame on you

shiina said...

Dear Tun,

I really have no idea what is going to happen to our country. Like some have mentioned about the Vision 2020, I doubt we can even go near to that. I do not want to worry about my future for nothing.

Your opinions and how you evaluate stuff are something that nobody can achieve. Support~~

samurai melayu said...

Salam AYAHANDA TUN
Just can't help falling in Love
with Chedet.com coz there are more good than bad that the rakyat can learn from your articles and comments from most of the blog visitors.
Izinkan,

Brader 'Nostradamus said' , we wish there are more people like you giving comments on this blog. Thank you for your views and of course other brader bloggers except the ‘you know who’, whose brains ‘besar punya batu ada duduk’ macam AAB (Atas(kepala) Ada Batu) presumably infected by the ‘DUMB’ syndrome.

To the champions of Malaysian Malaysia, the concept can be realized if all Malaysians can adhere to the following arrangements.

1. The supreme head of the country will be the Agung.

2. the religion of Islam as the official religion and all things 'haram' to the official religion must be abolished.No pigs, no liquors, no Gentings(gamblings).

3. The PM can be anybody and a muslim by virtue of the official religion of the country and as a mark of respect to the Agung being the Head of religious affairs Even the likes of Karpal and Lim Kit Siang can be the PM only if they are willing(with all their hearts) to embrace Islam as their faith and with an ‘Ahmad’ as an alias.

4.. The national language is Bahasa Malaysia written and spoken.All Malaysian should adopt a Malay name as an alias.eg. 'Batu' Malai and/or
'Botak' Chin..(no offence, pls)

5. All rakyat will enjoy the same facilities and benefits i e. on merit No more special rights to any indigenous group.

6. Etcs.

It may sound like establishing a ‘republic’ with the monarchy but the rakyat must accept the fact that this nation was built on the land called ‘Tanah Melayu’and Islam has eversince been the main religion devoted. Nothing racist about the suggestions.. eh

The fact that in Indonesia it was successfully constituted without any qualms from the Indonesian Chinese and Indians coz they accepted the concept of Bangsa Indonesia so why not with Bangsa Malaysia.

Anyway, the above are just small thots only and we leave to Datuk Akadirjasin(The Scribe) the bigger Thots.. alrite Dak.

vincent said...

Tun,
No matter how you sweet-coated your words,you are still a RACIST.

All of us are racist deep inside our heart but you as a former Malaysia leader, you should or at least try to unite all the races in Malaysia.

America will have their(finger-crossed) their 1st black president soon, when can Malaysia have a non-Malay PM? If the answer is NO, please don't say you are not a racist.Malaysian do not gain EQUAL opportunities because the opportunity given is based on their race and gender.

You have been PM for over 20+ years and have all the chance to abolish/change this policy, but did you?

The truth is difficult to accept but that's the REALITY in Malaysia.

MeriotocraticMadness said...

Sir,this is in response to an avalanche of ignorance found as comments over the integrity of Indians and their abilities .Herewith below are some statistics in contrast with the status quo of Malaysian Indians.

Hopefully, it would help to highlight the plight of Malaysian Indians ; notwithstanding Samy Velu or Karpal Singh.


In Today's world around the global village:-

Indian students gets the highest GPA.

Among the top 20 billionaires in the world according to Forbes, 3 are Indians against 1 Chinese.

Indian-origin women from the fields of journalism, art, education and finance were among the awardees at this year's Asian Women of Achievement Awards .

Indian model of education is now copied by Japan

An Indian is considered for the vice presidency of US by John McCain now.


Based on the count of the 2000 US census bureau.There are now more than 1.7 million peoples of Indian origin in America. They reflect the multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-lingual society of India. Almost similar to Malaysian Indians.

Indian Americans are represented in many fields including academics and entrepreneurs, doctors and lawyers, engineers and financiers. More than 87% of Indians in America have completed high school while at least 62% have some college education. As much as 58% of Indian Americans over the age of 25 hold a bachelor's degree or higher. High levels of education have also enabled Indian Americans to become a productive segment of the U. S. population, with 72.3% participating in the work force. Of these work force participants, 43.6% are employed in managerial and professional specialties.

More than 5,000 Indian Americans today serve as faculty members in institutions of higher education in the U. S. About 300,000 Indian Americans work in technology firms in California's Silicon Valley. They account for more than 15% of high-tech startups in that region. The median income of Indian Americans in that region is estimated to be US$125,000 (average US$200,000) a year.

In deed, a Tamil holds the distinction of the NASA's premier X-ray observatory .It was named the Chandra X-ray Observatory in honor of the late Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar. Known to the world as Chandra, he was widely regarded as one of the foremost astrophysicists of the twentieth century. The observatory was launched into space in July 1999.

According to University of California, Berkeley Study, about one-third of the engineers in Silicon Valley are of Indian descent, while 7% of valley high-tech firms are led by Indian CEOs .Some successes are well known, such as Vinod Khosla, co-founder of Sun Microsystems, and Sabeer Bhatia, who founded HotMail and sold it to Microsoft for $400 million. The number of Indian American New Economy millionaires is in the thousands. Massachusetts' Gururaj Deshpande, co-founder of a number of network-technology companies, is worth between $4 billion and $6 billion.

As a statesman, you should not link Tamils Malaysiana to LTTe.When you were in office, you sang praises for Dato Seri Samy Vellu.Now, you have different views. Remember, you too have been linked to many extremist groups.Remember we all a Malaysians.As a true Tamilian, i'll die for my country.

tun as a human i respect you but as a malaysian citizen i'm very sad coz you are fighting for one community only......when you were in power why you didn't oust samy whereas you knew that he has failed to do his job same as DSAI....even now it's not too late for you to better promote BANGSA MALAYSIA.........not BANGSA MELAYU only cause this country belongs to everyone and if it doesn't then our country will become like iraq,killing among themselves........

Spider said...

It was always a question whether TUN is a real good leader? The answer will be NO. Why? because he failed to create and groom good leaders. Look who is running the country now? Non of ur former cabinets ministers had vision and all are only slave who serve the master. Once the master is no longer than they will became betrayer. So in short , the leader created this morons. So who is who.

Wise_GuY said...

Tun, macam la hang tu bukan racist??? Kalo bukan sbb hang, i rasa melayu tak larat nak panjat on the community ladder. Why must u help only 1 race if not bcoz of u r a racist.

all the leaders only looked at their own race only. u think v r a fool is it?? hell with u!!

if u r not racist, u shud have scrap 10 or 5% discount for house purchasing in the 1st place.
dah la beli rumah harganya lebih 200 ribu, masih nak discount!!!

all the politicians are the same bunch of group. done all the dirty works during in power & now talking the bullshit!!!

Business said...

DEAR TUN,

LETS TAKE ALL THIS RACIST CONTEXT AND THROW IT OUT, THEN WHAT YOU HAVE IS THIS:

1- INDIANS IN MALAYSIA HAVE NO EQUITY BECAUSE THE COMUNITY AS NEVER BEEN RELEVANT TO THE GOVERNMET AS THE COMMUNITY DOES NOT CONTROLL BIG BUSINESS LIKE THE CHINESE COMMUNITY.

2- INDIANS ARE NOT ACCETED AS RESPECTABLE MEMBERS OF THE MALAYSIAN FAMILY BECUASE THEY ARE SEEN AS DRUNKS AND LABORERS BY THE GOVERNMENT.
3- INDIAN SCHOOLS ARE NOT AT PAR WITH STANDARD GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS,THUS NOT ALLOWING YOUNG INDIANS TO BETTER THEM SELFS AT THE SAME LEVEL A OTHER MALAYSIANS.
4- INDIANS ARE NEVER CONSIDERED AS PART OF THE MALAYSIAN FAMILIES AS FOR YEARS NOW, THE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN PUSHING THE BUMIPUTRA AGENDA AND THE POVERTY AID.
5- INDIANS ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY ANY ONE IN TERMS OF THEIR COMMUNITY AS AFTER THE MAICA SCANDAL INDIANS ALREADY HAD LOST THEIR FAITH IN MIC.

NOW PLEASE TELL ME HOW IS HINDRAF RACIST FOR WANTING ALL THE ABOVE (1-4) TO BE FACILITATED FOR THE COMMUNITY?

PLEASE TELL ME HOW DOES KARPAL SINGH BECOME RACISTS WHN HE GIVES FREE LEGAL AID TO POOR PEOPLE WITHOUT PREFERANCE TO THEIR ETHNICITY OR RACE AND RELIGION,

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT HAS THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT EVER DONE TO ELEVATE THE STATUS OF THE INDIAN COMMUNITY ON ITS OWN EFFORT WITHOUT USING MIC AS A SHEILD FOR ITS OWN FAILURES TO MANAGE THE EQUITY OF ALL MALAYSIAN'S.

LET ME MAKE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR,,, WE ARE MALAYSIAN'S, WE ACCPT AND UNDERSTAND AS WELL AS AGREE THAT THE BUMIPUTRA STATUS MUST BE THERE AS RIGHT TO THE TRUE MALAYSIANS BEING MALAY,MUSLIMS, WE SUPPORT THE GOVERNMTS CALL ON RESPECTING THIS STATUS.

THUS,WHERE IS THE BALANCE FOR THE OTHER MINORITY RACES IN THE MALAYSIAN COMMUNITY?
AND IS IT RACIST TO ASK FOR THE RELEASE OF PERSONS WHO ARE MERELY FIGHTHING FOR THE RIGHTS OF MALAYSIAN INDIANS TO BE RECOGNIZED AS EQUAL CITIZENS WITH RIGHTS SAME AS THOSE WARDED TO THE CHINESE AND OTHER ETHNIC FACULTIES IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY.?

I AM SORRY, BUT FOR ALL THE RESPECT I HAVE FOR YOU AS A FROMER PRIME MINISTER WHO LEAD US MALAYSIANS INTO THE FUTURE, YOU STILL JUST DON'T GET WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT...

MALAYSIAN'S AS A WHOLE WANT:

FREEDOM TO SPEAK

EQUITY IN A COUNTRY WHICH THEI TAXES PAY THE GOVERNMENT TO RUN

TO LIVE A LIFE OF PEACE AND HARMONY WITH OTHER RACES AS FELLOW MALAYSIANS AND NOT BY CREED AND ETHNICITY.

A TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT WHO TELLS THE TRUTH

LEADERS WHO (RESPECT THE RAKYAT) AND NOT TREAT THE RAKYAT LIKE STUPID CHILDREN.

EQUALITY IN THE VALUE OF LIFE IN MALAYSIA AMOGST THE RACES.

A COST OF LIVING THAT IS REASONABLE AND MANAGEBLE

PERSONALLY I THINK THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD LEGALIZE COMMISSIONS ON TENDERS WHICH WILL DO AWAY WITH CORRUTION. THEY SHOULD LEGALIZE IILEGAL IMMIGRANT BY COLLECTING A LEVY FOR THOSE WORKING AND CHARGE THEM A FEE TO PAY FOR THEIR LEGALIZATION AS THIS WILL BRING MORE REVENUE FOR THE COUNTRY, AS THERE ARE TOO MANY MALAYSIANS WHO WILL NOT DO THE TYPE OF JOBS THEY DO..

AND FINALLY, STOP PLAYING RACE GAMES IN THE PRESS. THERE SHOULD NEVER BE ATTACS ON LEADERS IN OR OUT OF GOVERNMENT USING RACE FOR ANY ISSUE WHATSOEVER AS IT IS REALLY DISRESPECTFULL TO THE TARGETED RACIAL GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL....

INDIANS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SECOND CLASS CITIZENS OR RATHER NO CLASS CITIZENS IN THIS COUNTRY AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE AS LONG AS THE MINDSET IS ALWAYS IN REFERANCE TO THE TAMIL TIGERS...

I AM REALLY SICK OF THE DISPLAY OF RACIAL ANTICS BY ALL GOVERNMENT LEADERS AND GROUPS...

I HOPE THAT THE POLITICAL AVENUE THAT WE HAVE WILL SOON REALIZE THAT IS JUST MALAYSIA, OUR RACE, RELIGION AND CREED IS A MATTER OF PRIVATE PERSONAL CHOICE.

THUS I SINCERELY HOPE THAT SOME RESPECT BE GIVEN IN LIGHT OF CALLING ANYONE A RACISTS AS FOR MANY YEARS TUN EVEN YOU WERE BRANDED A RACIST BY MANY QUATERS OF THE RAKYAT...

FOR ME, I SEE NO RAC OR SKIN COLOR, A PERSON RELGION IS HIS OR HERS PERSONAL CHOICE AND I WILL ALWAYS RESPECT THAT,THUS I HOPE THS RACIST WARS BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL PARTIES STOP AT ONCE.

IT IS BAD ENOUGH NOW THAT EVERY RACE IN MALAYSIA IS SUFFERING FROM THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS,,, THE LAST THING WE NEED IS MORE PROBLEMS BETWEEN RACES AND RELIGIOUS FRACTIONS..

I SAY ON THE GROUNDS OF HUMANITY, ISA BE SHUT DOWN AND ALL IN DETENTION ARE FREE, I SAY STOP RACIAL POLITICS AT ONCE AND I FINALLY SAY

WHY CANT WE JUST BE MALAYSIAN AND NOT IDENTIFIED BY OUR RACE,I PRAY THAT THERE WILL COME A DAY WHEN THE GOVERNMENT WILL SEE ITS PEOPLE AS MALAYSIAN AND STOP BRANDING US BY OUR RACES AS SUCH, I HOPE DEAR TUN WITH THE HIGHEST RESPECT THAT YOU PLEASE TAKE HEED OF THE TIMES AND SENSITIVITY OF THE ISSUES AND STOP ATTACKING USING THE RACE ISSUE.

IF MR TOLL HAS DONE SOMETHING THEN ATTACK HIM ON HIS LACK AND FAILURES AS IN HIS PROFESSIONAL CAPASITY ON ISSUES WHERE HE HAS FAILED THE COMMUNITY HE REPRESENTED. AND THE SAME GOES FOR KARPAL SINGH AND EVEN PAK LAH...

AS A POLITICIAN YOU MAY BE TE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SHIP,,, BUT IF YOU ARE A HUMAN BEING THEN NOW THAT YOU ARE NO LONGER AN ACTIVE POLITICIAN, TRY TO GET TO KNOW THE PEOLE WHOM YOU HAVE BEEN ATTACKING FOR 22 YEARSON A HUMANE SIDE...

I MERELY DEFEND KARPAL SINGH'S HONOR BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN WITH MY EYES WHAT HE ND HIS FAMILY HAVE DONE FOR PEOPLE WITHOUT EVER ASKING FOR ANYTHING IN RETURN FROM ANYBODY TO THE EXTENT OF EVEN USING HIS OWN MONEY.

AS I WILL ALWAYS DEFEND YOUR NAME TUN BECAUSE AS I HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT IN YOUR TIME AS PM WE COULD ALWAYS FEED OUR FAMILIES AND WE NEVER HAD TO SUFFER LIKE THIS AND WE WERE NEVER ASKED TO CHANGE OUR LIFE STYLE BECAUSE OF THE FAILURES OF THE GOVERNMENT.

THERE THINGS YOU HAVE DONE WELL AND THERE ARE MISTAKES YOU TOO HAVE MADE AND SO HAS PAK LAH AND EVERY OTHER POLITICIAN, BUT PLEASE DO THE RIGHT THING NOW AND PUT A STOP TO RACIAL BRANDING.

THANK YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU SAFE AND HEALTHY ALWAYS...

G. Palanivel Mengingatkan Dr. Mahathir akan Keturunannya

MIC deputy president G Palanivel today slammed former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad for accusing the party's long term chief S Samy Vellu of being a racist and warned such statements could fan deeper racial sentiments.

In a statement released today, Palanivel also said that the former prime minister's comments on Hindraf were short in accuracy and insensitive to the sentiment of Indians in the country.

"It is sad to note that Mahathir is not aware of the fact that Hindraf is not only made of Tamil people but includes many non-Tamil and even non-Hindus.

"He (Mahathir) is wrong when he said Hindraf leaders only represent Tamil racists," said Palanivel in defence to Samy Vellu who has recently joined in the bandwagon in advocating for the release of five Hindraf leaders detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

G. Palanivel also said Mahathir should look into "his own roots" before manifesting such statements. Mahathir's forefathers are from South India.

it's a fact that indians were left behind all these years..
government never took any drastic steps to improve their(indians) future...
indians were..n still are left behind in all aspects..why?cuz indians are just a minority group in malaysia?
we relied on MIC..they let us down..we relied on the government (BN)..they let us down..
so following hierarchy..MIC to BN to British..thats where the indians went..whats so wrong with it?
don't come blaming hindraf as a racist org..yet it's all the government's fault..
indians wants to see action taken..not listen to empty promises given..

"He (Mahathir) is wrong when he said Hindraf leaders only represent Tamil racists," said Palanivel in defence to Samy Vellu who has recently joined in the bandwagon in advocating for the release of five Hindraf leaders detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

Palanivel also said Mahathir should look into "his own roots" before manifesting such statements. Mahathir's forefathers are from South India.

The MIC man also added that Mahathir has "lost sight of the big picture" in his efforts to wage a war against the current prime minister and Samy Vellu.

"People have become more politically aware and Mahathir should know how people read him. He should not make unsubstantiated statements that are reckless and careless in nature," he said.

Palanivel added that the civil society was championing for "more freedom" together and people of other races also believe that the "ISA is proscriptive and hinders the process of democracy".

"To pick on any one race and say that such a request is racist is simply causing mischief.

"Past leaders and leaders who have lost their positions are busy apportioning blame on why Barisan lost and in doing so they are confusing both supporters and non-supporters," he stressed.

He highlighted that BN should focus on bringing the Indian votes back to the ruling coalition but it was not possible unless leaders unite and leave behind their self-centredness.

"Using rhetoric to subtly cover their self-interest is not going to work because people have now become more politically aware," he added.

Dr M: Samy exposes his deep racist sentiments

In a blog post yesterday, Mahathir chided Samy Vellu for campaigning alongside DAP chairperson Karpal Singh and former UN special rapporteur Param Cumaraswamy in calling him (Dr Mahathir) a racist.

mahathir and samy vellu and indian communityMahathir criticised Samy Vellu for coveting the government to release Hindraf leaders from ISA despite the fact that Hindraf represented Tamil racists whose motives were akin to Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka.

"In sympathising with Hindraf, Samy exposes his deep racist sentiments," said Mahathir

"They must know that Hindraf represents Tamil racists who still look to their old masters, the British, to protect them. They don't believe in Malaysian institutions," he added.

"They speak not just of Indians but of Tamils as a separate race. They and their apologists are racist to the core," he stressed in his blog post.

Mahathir also said that back when he was the Prime Minister, Samy Vellu insisted that he was the only leader of the Indians.

"He refused to allow other Indian political parties to join the Barisan Nasional. His arrogance was unbearable. The defeat of the Malaysian Indian Congress is entirely because of him," he said.

Mahathir promised to affix extracts from Samy Vellu in his future entries so that readers can then "judge what kind of Indian the Indians have as their leader".

This is not the first time Mahathir has blamed Samy Vellu for failing the Indian community. Previously he blamed Samy Vellu of stifling Indian voices in a Malaysiakini interview just before the March 8 general election.

The Indian voters totally rejected MIC in the last general election by even ejecting Samy Vellu from his Sungai Siput parliamentary seat, a seat which he had held since 1974.

The party managed to win only three parliamentarian and seven states seats. It contested in nine parliamentary and 19 state seats.

As a result Samy Vellu had to relinquish his ministerial post. Palanivel was also among the party's big losers.

tag said...

Sebenarnya bukan saja Samy tidak bantu bangsa sendiri. Saya juga macam tak pernah baca dan nampak articles dari press sejak dulu bahawa Karpal pernah menyuarakan tentang kesusahan atau dilemma India dan macam mana nak menolong mereka. Apa yang selalu Karpal voice up di press ialah Hantam Tun, policies Tun saja selama ini. Jadi, I betul-betul kesian kaum India, betul tun cakap "Even Indian Leader never help their race". I hope the new Indian Leader in Pakatan kali ini betul-betul tolong mereka and don't blame anyone else again.

hardy said...

yeah u're right samy is a racist but it alwys take a bigger racist to call others one. you have actualy destroyed this country by all your racist remarks and yet you are not even a pure malay.

May god have mercy on you.

DR SURESH K said...

Well said Dato'Fadzly,you have articulated your view in a simple and straight forward way.I wish more and more people would be able to decipher the current issue like you.Who to blame if the leaders are indulging in racist remarks,people with low IQ tend to follow too.We need more people like you Dato'.BRAVO.

Clarity said...

Palani,,,

Kindly find the definition of Racist.

Samy Vellu,, very clearly said in the media, RM 300M allocated by the Government, is for Tamil schools.
Can u explain, is/are there only tamil schools in this country?

Is MIC for tamilians only?

Do you or he knows who Indians are?

Don,t blame Dr. Mahathir for saying, what was said. BN had made contributions to Indians, like Maika, TM shares and many others. Where are all those monies?

Samy Vellu and all you defeated committee members, in MIC are a bunch of loosers, like the bad eggs, that can be smelled miles away.

I advise to shut your mouth and focus on revealing the monies, of yester years rather than, to cover up the truth.

At least go to the grave, with respect and honesty.

Kehadapan Tun yang sangat sangat dihormati,

Diharap Tun sentiasa berada di dalam keadaan sihat walafiat. Diharap Tun tidak lupa menjaga kesihatan diri Tun dan Tun Hasmah juga.

Saya harap tekanan bertubi tubi dari pihak yang gemar menyakitkan hati Tun dan juga hati kami semua tidak akan memudaratkan atau memberi tekanan terhadap kesihatan Tun.

Saya berdoa agar Tun sihat sihat selalu. Dalam masa yang sama, Tun tidak perlulah menjawab tuduhan G. Palanivel baru baru ini. Itu semuanya taktik politik mereka yang kotor.

Kami sudah faham taktik ini dan kami sudah menjangkakannya. Jadi tidak perlulah Tun bersusah payah menerangkan keadaan.

Walaubagaimanapun, di harap Tun terus menerus mendedahkan kepincangan kepimpinan Pak Lah kerana lebih ramai yang tahu, lebih bagus.

Sekian terima kasih.

Malaysian said...

Tun,
I'm a big fan of yours but not for the silly statements you make especially when calling someone else a racist when you yourself the worst racist i have ever seen in my life...pls don't forget that you were
a racial party president once and not a multiracial party leader...if you going to argue that you are not racist why didnt you strongly hold to what Dato' Onn bin Jaafar wanted to do...A single party for all races...You will never agree to that because you will never want to see your race losing to other races in a 'healthy competition'...why is that so??Is it because you are too concern about your race....what about other races???To be exact Malaysia is still maintaining with what the British has left for us-No for unity and integrity BUT Yes for
racism and separatism- When are we going to see THE REAL NATIONALISM in us??after 2020??

Dear tun,

Off all the people in the world, you are calling samy a racist? Who can be more racist that you are. You are a racist down to the core ... in ur speech, in ur blood, in wat ever u do. U r the ultimate racist in malaysia. U only talk about melayu, islam, melayu, islam, melayu, islam ...... and u dont give a shit about others ...

dev_vanan said...

I'm not sure if I shud address you as Tun. I guess you are just a hypocrite yourself. Before you can call others as a racist I think you shud look at your ownself. Don't be a racist Dr Mahathir.. Don't destroy the peace of this country with your unethical comments..

Vishnu said...

Dear Tun,

Soo much for wawasan 2020. When you thought about wawasan 202 did you equate all the races or just one?? You might want to go back to the drawing board for this to get your calcs right.

Bloody shameful to the country and to some of the people for commenting utter rubbish and nonsense. You know who you are!

If you hate Indians sooo much during your tenure as PM why didnt you just follow what Uganda did by kicking all the Indians out from the country? It would have avoided this controversy in the first place. No Samy Vellu, No your best friend Ananda Krishnan, No Tony Fernandes, No Punch Gunalan, No Rajagopal, No K Nantha Kumar, No Karpal Singh, NO Mohandass etc etc

Dont know if you are reading this or not..but one thing you got right sir is you are stirring lots of sentiments around the country.

Omong said...

Dearest TUN

The colonial masters were once upon a time, white - they came with their gunboats .....

That was history. Now we are beginning to see the new masters although non-whites, they insist on "equal" rights. Economically they have been given the green light to grab a big share of the pie. That is not enough, they now want to grab a big share of the political pie as well.

Melayu harus sedar dan bangkit sebelum terlambat. Jangan sampai bumi sendiri dijajah lagi. Memang benar "Takkan Melayu hilang didunia", tetapi sanggup kah Melayu menjadi pekerja semata2 dibumi sendiri, diperintah oleh kaum pendatang.

Salam Tun, moga Allah mencucuri rahmat dan kekuatan nye keatas Tun sekeluarga untuk terus berjuang demi kepentingan agama bangsa dan negara. Tak boleh nak komen bnyk sebab tak de fakta yang jelas. Walau bagaimanapun saya memang tersangat kecewa dengan sifat pemimpin2 yang ada sekarang yang langsung tidak menghormati pemimpin yang telah lama berjasa pada mereka. Baik Tun dan bekas2 menteri kabinet yang lain seolah olah tidak relevan lagi. Pada hemat saya mereka adalah orang yang paling rugi. Khidmat dan nasihat pemimpin macam Tun sangat2lah diperlukan untuk meneruskan kesinambungan diantara yang baru dan lama. Saya tidak hairan kalau Pakatan Rakyat pun sanggup mendengar nasihat Tun.
Teruskan perjuangan, kami sentiasa berdoa agar Tun dilanjutkan usia, sentiasa tenang, sabar dan berwibawa.
Amin

I'm sad. What is becoming to this country? I think it's ok that Tun say Datuk Seri Samy Vellu is a racist, because as i know, everyone also has abit of racism in their bones. But I'd like to state here, that I am proud of Datuk Seri Samy Vellu when I saw Bulletin Utama a moment ago. Samy Vellu has stubbornly refused to say something to belittle you for the statement that you made. Golly,Malays should learn from him. At least someone in this country still remembers your contribution to the country.

PJ said...

Tun, you seem to be taking a savage pleasure in lambasting and lashing out at everyone you don't like. This trait of yours seems to be ingrained in you and also appears to be part of your psyche. You may fall from grace if you continue to be that way.In your stronger moments (if any) please reflect on your attitude, for heaven's sake!

DR SURESH K said...

My fellow Malaysians,

If you readers have noticed PULAU'S comment,one can decipher that these are the unreasonable people the leaders will produce when they enggage in racist remarks.A leader like TUN should be well aware that he is reaching out to a vast majority of youngsters who are hardly aware of the history of our country Malaysia.This is very sad indeed.

As long as the Indians in Malaysia are concerned,MIC and Samy have been annihilated.Mind you,the Indians have always been a true and loyal supporters of BN since independence.

With the advent of Hindraf ,the Indians seem to have seen an awakening?Why is that?

Hindraf for one is not a political organization,it was formed to protect the indiscriminate demolition of the hindu temples in Malaysia.Therefore it represents all Indians in Malaysia and not only the Tamils.There are malayalee and telugu members too among the 5 ISA detainees.

It is totally unbecoming of anyone to equate Hindraf with the LTTE in Sri Lanka without any substantial evidence.Hindraf is committed to a peaceful struggle demanding merely the rights of the poor and marginalized Indians in Malaysia,hence the reason why they carried the portrait of Mahatma Gandhi who is a symbol of non-violence.At the same time they also carried the portrait of our very own DYMM Yang Di Pertuan Agong,as a symbol of love and respect for the nation.

They took to the streets only after their 100s of letters and memorandums to our PM went unanswered.

They never took up arms like the Tigers in sri lanka,infact they carried banners saying 'KAMI AMAN,POLIS TOLONG JANGAN GANAS'.

Why should those tamils in Sri Lanka who are such a minority go against the might of a military of a country,recruiting children as young as 12 yrs old?Just like why are there so many muslims willing to give up their family and career to blow them up in the name of jihad?They have their own problems, but the Indians in Malaysia should never be associated with the Tigers without any solid proof,that is not fair and totally absurd.

Never did Hindraf or any Indian in Malaysia ever questioned the rights of the malays or the bumis.Neither did they asked for alms,all they demanded was their rights to be treated in a dignified manner as Malaysians in their own country of birth.

To my malay brethrens,please dont get angry,think wisely,put your selves in our shoes and then you will understand our feelings.

You as bumis can enjoy whatever you want,which you have been since the inception of the NEP,we dont care but dont forget your other fellow non-bumi Malaysians who are also poor and need help too.Just be kind enough to have a little thought for them too,please dont dismiss them because of the skin color.They are all ready to contribute to Malaysia as our fore fathers did.

Stop all these hurtful racist comments,try to be competitive to reach your objective,that will allow you to face any adversity in life.A healthy competition is always good for the mind and soul.

Mari kita semua sebagai rakyat Malaysia berdiri sama2 tinggi dan membina dan mengharumka nama negara kembali,lupa kan ahli2 politik ni,yang bermain dengan perasaan kita.

Say no to racism.Malay,chinese,indian,kadazan,murut etc are all Malaysians,we are in the 21st century,we have to be competitive and be able to challenge not only our neighbours but also the world in terms of human capitalism.Remember we are in a globalized world now.

With due respect to TUN,
Please help unite all Malaysians.God bless Malaysia.

Omong said...

Salam bahagia TUN

It seems that there is a conductor to this orchestra. Someone or some people are busy getting those with an axe to grind to discredit you.

Their aim is to distract the people from the price hikes.

God, what a load of bollocks. Percaya sangatlah mitos liberal mat salleh pasal negeri dia yang samarata, libertine dan adil saksama sangat tu.

When did the US achieve independence? 1776. When did they free their black slaves -- the next day? Nuh-uh. Otherwise they wouldn't need a honking big civil war A CENTURY AFTER American independence.

Having been freed, when did the Good Ol' "Let's Be Like Them" US give equal rights as the immigrant whites? The next week? Nuh-uh. Otherwise Rosa Parks wouldn;t have caused a stir when she sat on that bus in 1955 -- 'only' 179 YEARS AFTER American independence.

Having been given equal rights, when did negroes obtain their right to vote? The next month? Nuh-uh. Otherwise there would have been no need to assassinate Martin Luther King in 1968 -- 'just' 192 YEARS AFTER American independence.

It seems that even in the land of milk and honey, the miracle of Obama didn't happen overnight.

Salam Tun,

Sekian lama, sebagai seorang rakyat Malaysia, saya menyanjungi kepimpinan Tun sebagai bekas Perdana Menteri. Wawasan dan aspirasi Tun untuk tanahair membawa pelbagai pembangunan dan kemajuan yang tidak dapat dinafikan. Jika dibandingkan Tun dengan bekas -bekas perdana menteri sebelum Tun,sememangnya Tun layak disanjungi dan disayangi oleh segenap rakyat Malaysia.

Namun, Tun harus sedar tiada manusia di muka bumi ini yang "perferct". Pelbagai dasar yang Tun gubal bersifat perkauman secara langsung. Baru - baru ini, Tun memperdebatkan isu sensitif iaitu "Ketuanan Melayu". Bukankah itu suatu sifat "racist". Tun acapkali laungkan akan rasionalnya wujud DEB yang bertujuan membantu saudara Melayu untuk memajukan diri, memperkasakan bangsa dan sebagainya. Bagaimana pula dengan rakyat Malaysia yang lain, apakah patut kami dilayan seolah -seolah kami kaum pendatang sedangkan nenek moyang kami dilahirkan disini.Apakah tidak tindakan sebegini dikatakan "racist"?

Ada segelintir yang memberi maklum balas dalam blog Tun yang menggunakan nada bahasa yang memperlekehkan kemampuan masyarakat India di Malaysia untuk berinteraksi menggunakan Bahasa Malaysia yang betul laras bahasanya. Bukankah ianya bersifat 'perkauman".

Izinkan saya memetik peribahasa Melayu " kata periuk belanga hitam". Pada pendapat saya Tun dengan Samy tidak jauh bezanya dalam soal "racist". So, grow up Tun.

`And remember; that thanks to few Malay ppl with Indian ancestry who gave their lifetime to the upliftment of the Malays;’
Terimakasih kepada Tun which is only HALF of Indian Origin , get you fact right.

`Only the Norwegians seem to understand the plight of the Tamils.’
Norway hanya ingin menolong untuk memastikan golongan Tamil ini tidak membawa masuk kacau-bilau ke negara mereka pula.

`USA is in the verge of having a black as the president..can u see their mentality.’
Belum jadi presiden lagi, so jangan lebih kuah dari sudu, yang undi obama ni pun majoritinya orang negro so tak surprise la.

`I am very sad, because u were my idol and the things u say nowdays doesnt seem to be real’
Tak payah tulis Tun is your idol la, who care what you think….

`in my opinion, you are as equally guilty as samy vellu, if not more, for tolerating him and his brand of politics all this while.’
Sami Velu is entrusted to take care of the Indian Community, so don’t blame other people.Anyway the majority of indian in malaysia is doing well.It is the bumiputra is doing poorly…

`Do you know that a recent article stated that poor Indian families are feeding their babies diluted condense milk & rock sugar water because they have no money to buy infant formulas because the price has almost doubled over the past 3 years’
How about majority of malay family who dont even had a proper food to eat and house to live?

The entire Barisan Nasional system of politics is racist in nature, so stop the finger pointing.
Ahhh I believe you are not racist, you are the new Mahatma Gandi right?

Thank You Hindraf , Thank You so called bangsa Malaysia for awaken me………..

red1 said...

Dear Tun Dr. Mahathir,
Samy just responded last night over the TV news that out of deep respect for you as his former boss and what you have done for the country he will not respond back to your statement here about him.

Now isn't that a commendable behaviour from him? Doesn't that make people appreciate him for been so gentlemanly particularly towards you Tun?

Can Tun be at least forgiving on him and see that while you were PM, that all of the Cabinet members were trying their best to build up the country? You are said to have succeeded the most and the rest not so.

It is good now that you are revealing secrets but they should be historical lessons and not political lambasting of others whom you have led. It will smack of after-the-fact hopelessness.

The rakyat now wants solutions like you have often thought of. May prefer you to just stick to that. We are approaching a life akin to the zoo. Do not feed the animals.

Rakyat silently reads and support you where they see fit. And they have misgivings against you too.

Politics is the art of perception and persuasion. Maybe you feeding the animal instincts here is part of it.

Pak Sako said...

Tun Mahathir dan para pembaca sekalian:

Saya ingin memberi pendapat saya mengenai HINDRAF dan isu-isu yang berkait dengannya. Adalah harapan saya agar seluruh rakyat Malaysia, sama ada yang mengunjungi blog ini atau tidak, berupaya mempertimbangkan perkara-perkara berikut, kerana ianya sangat penting demi kesejahteraan negara dan hubungan antara kaum-kaum di Malaysia:

1. Perarakan HINDRAF yang damai pada 25 November 2007 adalah bertujuan untuk menimbulkan kesedaran mengenai saudara-saudari kita yang berbangsa India yang mengalami kemiskinan perit dan hidup menderita tanpa sokongan sosial yang mencukupi yang berpunca dari mana-mana pihak, khususnya kerajaan, untuk melegakan penderitaan mereka.

2. Tiada bukti sehingga kini yang mendapat HINDRAF itu kumpulan yang berunsurkan teroris/pengganas seperti LTTE di Sri Lanka, dan tuduhan ini adalah tidak berasas, lebih-lebih lagi kerana para peserta perarakan HINDRAF tidak melakukan sebarang aktiviti ganas atau yang membahayakan sesiapa.

3. Tuduhan bahawa golongan ini adalah bersifat perkauman boleh dianggap remeh-temeh. Ini adalah kerana mereka cuma ingin menonjolkan bahawa terdapat segolongan di antara mereka hidup menderita. Bahawasanya mereka itu dari golongan bangsa India adalah suatu yang sampingan.

4. Secara ideal atau unggul, semua rakyat Malaysia tidak kira bangsa harus berarak untuk membawa perhatian kepada mana-mana golongan paling miskin tanpa kira bangsa. Ini di samping bangsa India, terdapat juga golongan miskin yang terbiar di kalangan orang Melayu, Orang Asli, orang Cina, dan sebagainya. Tetapi, realitinya di Malaysia, kita perlu lagi memantapkan lagi perpaduan dan rasa sayang terhadap satu sama lain tanpa melihat warna kulit.

5. Pemintaan HINDRAF tidak menjejaskan atau mengugat kedudukan bangsa Melayu sama sekali. Maka dakwaan yang dibuat Tun Mahathir boleh dikatakan kurang tepat.

6. Dakwaan ramai para pengulas di sini bahawa orang berbangsa India tidak fasih bercakap/bertutur/menulis dalam Bahasa Melayu dan sebagainya adalah langsung tidak tepat; malah, jelas dari komen-komen yang diberi di sini oleh mereka-mereka yang berbangsa Cina dan India tertunjuk bahawa penguasaan Bahasa Melayu mereka adalah cemerlang. Ini boleh juga dikatakan bagi segolongan besar rakyat bukan Melayu di Malaysia sekarang. Maka, isu bahasa tidak harus ditimbulkan sebagai alasan bahawa golongan bukan Melayu tidak mendakapi atau memeluk semangat ke-Malaysia-an.

7. Apa yang Samy Vellu katakan mengenai kesusahan orang India adalah betul, tetapi Samy Vellu sewaktu beliau mempunyai kedudukan tinggi di dalam kerajaan Malaysia tidak bertindak membantu orang India yang miskin dengan secukupnya, atau mendorong kerajaan dengan sebaik-baiknya demi matlamat ini. Oleh itu, adalah hipokritikal dan tidak ikhlas sekiranya beliau tiba-tiba ingin menunjuk bahawa beliau prihatin terhadap kesusahan golongan miskin India.

8. Kebajikan rakyat Malaysia, tidak kira bangsa, bukan sahaja tanggungjawab komuniti-komuniti ini sendiri, tapi juga adalah tanggungjawab kerajaan. Oleh demikian, hal menjaga kebajikan orang India yang miskin adalah tanggungjawab kerajaan dan bukan parti politik seperti MIC. Sejajar dengan ini, tanggungjawab menjaga kebajikan orang Melayu juga adalah di tangan kerajaan, bukan saja parti politik UMNO. Kita harus tahu membezakan peranan parti-parti politik daripada peranan kerajaan negara. Tidak harus kita terima bahawa kebajikan mana-mana bangsa adalah tanggungjawab parti politik masing-masing. Ini mentaliti kolot yang serupa situasi sewaktu zaman penjajahan British di mana strategi "pecah-dan-perintah" diamalkan. Ini tidak relevan lagi dan tidak harus diamalkan lagi di dalam sebuah sistem negara berdaulat dengan masyarakat majmuk seperti negara kita.

Sekian.

To anybody who tried to belittle the ancient Malay Rulers/Sultans for losing this Malay States to the Penjajah, pls check the fact that, the Malay Sultanates with so few population in number and small size & lack-in-technik against the European/Mat Saleh, but still they can stand/hold the foreign attacks thru many battles at sea and land, until the Penjajah get tired and just gained half of the sovereignty, not all, on Malay States by merely becomes "British Adviser" or "British Resident", and yet, God wills, the Malay Sultanates still preserved & ruling the states until now at par with the few remaining monarch in the world like the British Monarch, Japan Emperor, Thai King, Brunei, Swedish King & Arab Kings.

Compared to Indian, with huge populations, millions in number, with great Maharajahs, with thousands of war elephants suffered total lost to tiny British Army, and sadly, now, there is no more Maharajahs (e.g. the Moghuls Khan, Rajendraraja and Tippu Sultan), dissappeared/eliminated by the British.
Therefore, it's better not to belittle other people's history, as everyone has his own strengths & weaknesses.
No nations in Asia can say their ancient kingdoms so superior than others as the fact is the European had occupied almost all asian including the great China, Monggol, Indochina, Malay Archipelagoes, India Sub-continent, Arabs, Polynesian, Austronesians for 400 years, that's their era, so be it. Only Japan not been defeated.

Sungguh KELAKAR bila membaca pendapat, "USA is getting a black president, so When are We, Malaysi?", diiringi dengan hujah2 retorik "equality", "meritokrasilah","human rights lah", "Malaysian Malaysia lah"and "apa sajalah". Sedar kah mereka, I afraid some dont understand me,so I talk in English lah, how come can such people think of Non Malay PM for Malaysia by comparing it with the U.S.?
1. Can a Malay, or Indian, or european, or a Siamese, or an arab be the Prime Minister of Singapura or as Menteri Mentor, at least.
2. Is there any opportunity for a Japanese to become General Secretary of Communist/People Party of ROC (Republic of China)
3. or at least a Punjabi take the Premiership in Taiwan.
4. Can a Chinese be the PM of Japan?
5. Can a Malay be the PM of India?
No way man!!! The opportunity is None.
So, no need to do joke on the issue of PM Malaysia for non Malay for the sake of equality konon, please. Unless all the items (1-5) spelled out before be realized, then only we can talk about that. What's more the malays belonging that you people want some more. Please dont raise this issue.

"...what kind of Indian they have for an Indian leader." I felt tht your statement reeks of racism. Coming from a man, whom I thought would live out his life as a true statesman is certainly disappointing. "Melayu mudah lupa" was your catch phrase. Have you likewise "macam kacang lupakan kulit." We must never deny our roots just only to embrace something else for glory or personal gratification. Why do we champion ourselves as something we're not? Indians, Muslims, Malay, etc...Enough of labels and policies segregation, let us learn to live as Malaysians. Truly Malaysians!

Navi said...

Come on Tun, you accuse Samy of being a racist. He was like a dog to you and would have even licked your boot. Samy and MIC youth have been the alleged instigator against HIndraf during their demo and responsible for the arrest of the 60 people at Batu Caves for 'purported murder'. Samy was your obedient servant and did what the UMNO government wanted. After the 1999 elections Samy even claimed that he had malay bllod running in his vein. How can you accuse him of being a racist and supporter of the Indians cause, when for 22 years he fought for the malays.
Samy's call for the release of the Hindraf 5 is a new phenomena now that he has lost the elections.

I can't help considering you a racist, for the only cause you seem interested is to split the nation into racial lines rather than being a unifying factor. Is this your way to shift the focus on allegations made against your misrule the last two decades.

00HINDRAF represents HINDUS not TAMILS. Tamils are also christians and muslims. Thus HINDRAF is not racists but are religious HINDU extremist.

Assalammualaikum Tun ...

Samy Vellu tu adalah menteri yg lantik dan dilindungi oleh Tun sendiri. Selama Tun menerajui kerajaan, dia memegang jawatan yg kedua terpenting selepas Menteri Kewangan. Kesemua kontrak kerajaan yg bernilai tinggi adalah dibawah jagaan dan seliaan beliau dan Tun sendiri sebagai PM.
Dah terlalu lumayan dia duduk diKementerian itu hanya beberapa seketika saja beliau meninggalkan Kementerian Lumayan itu.
Banyak salah guna kuasa yg berlaku didalam Kementerian itu, namun sebab dia pandai jaga Tun dan kroni kroni ... dia bermaharajalela ditakhta Kementerian.
Sebab kuasa yg diberi oleh Tun membuatkan diakebal dan tidak boleh digugat oleh sesiapa pun termasuk Pak Lah. Namun kuasa rakyat juga yg terbukti lebih berkuasa dari kuusa PM.
Kini, Tun kritik dia. Anak didik Tun sendiri. Kuasa dia dalam MIC sama ngan kuasa Tun semasa bermaharajalela dalam UMNO, cuma dia masih belum turun. Menganggap dirinya Tuhan bagi kaum India dinegara ini.
Banyak lagi bekas bekas lantikan Tun dalam kabinet yg bakal Tun kritik nanti .... semua itu adalah hasil didikan Tun.
Sepatutnya Pak Lah lebih berani dari dulu dengan menyinkirkan kesemua ahli kabinet lantikkan Tun semasa beliau mula memegang kuasa supaya virus virus yang ujud tidak terus bertenggek.
Semoga Tun sihat sentiasa.

Salam. Tun, Saya rasa Tun dgn Samy 2x5 saja. Dua2 diktator. Ingatlah ada dosa dan pahala. Syurga dan Neraka. Menyesal dan bertaubatlah sebelum terlambat. Orang yg masuk syurgapun menyesal!

Zubli Zainordin said...

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, yes I have said earlier that you have been gentle in using the term "Folly" to a one word description of "Samy".

Now S Samy Vellu has openly agree to disagree, actually his is a lot less, "a dust".

A dust to me, that is easy to be blown here and there. Soon be blown away so much so a new leader can be in a position to replace him and truly uplift Malaysians whom this individual represent.

He laughs reading what you wrote, yet, inside if he is crying, who knows.

Dia pun mudah lupa juga rupanya.

Yet he has improved a bit after his lost on the 8th of March to a younger opponent.

That bit is not enough.

However it is a signal if he can read it, understand it, and learn from it.

But he is still in a position grovelling and thus usher a support for Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

As a leader he could also see the good point in Yong Teck Lee's SAPP reasons to push the motion.

Not a slow motion, but a fast motion to a vote of no confidence against Abdullah Ahmad Badawi this coming Monday.

Yong Teck Lee represent now the present motion.

I hope those who were instructed by S Samy Vellu what to do this coming Monday, in Parliament, is not belonging to a past motion.

The same...

While the people they represent also needs the change!

A NO confidence against Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Zubli Zainordin said...

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, I can understand S Samy Vellu, but this G Palanivel, why does he want to appear as a joker, another one, in This Follywood comedy.

How many more jokers do you need to make this party irrelevant?

I do not think G Panivel any larger than a stone, because the one claiming to be the champion, the best, is just a "dust".

If G Palanivel understand what root is in relations to shoot, then list what has he done for Malaysians, and those whom he represents.

I sense this G Palanivel was also instructed to say what he has said.

Else how come he suddenly become brave to shift the target from the folly to the monument.

Instructed!

Unless he can prove otherwise.

If any one in this team being quiet when the dust is present and prefer to appear a folly, then the speak is worth not a speck of dust.

Keep on keeping quiet, please, until you know how to rebranding your party. That means, pure diamond quality without the dust.

I hope he has this much intelligent to understand this.

not tamil said...

Should it be Hindraf or Traf?!!

It seems very odd that Hindraf i.e HINDU Rights Action Force is figting for the rights of Indians.
Hindu is a religion not a race. Indians comprise of people who's religions could be either Hindu, Muslim, Christians or others. How could a group with a name Hindu (a religion) be fighting for the rights of Indians?
Apart from this, its also wrong to say that the Indian community was brought in as indentured labourers to the then Malaya and exploited by the British since 150 years ago.
Indians comprise of Tamils, Marathis, Gurkhas, Northern Indians, Sikhs, Biharis, Assamis etc etc.
Note: It was only the Tamils (out of all the Indians) who were brought in 150 years ago into Malaya.
Other races (mainly the Gurkhas and Northern Indians) came in on their own or were brought in 60 to 80 years ago only. They never worked as labourers or were ever exploited in anyway.
Infact, they were brought and given respectable jobs particularly in the police force to take charge in upkeeping the security of the then Malaya.
Thus, the more appropriate name for this group should be Tamil Rights Action Force (Traf).
This shall avoid wrong reference of the people who's 'rights' are being fought for and also avoid the unrelated parties being dragged into this matter.

unrelated party

Nesanga said...

You have been an 'Ultra' during your early days.Your book 'Malay Dilemma'was the study of race relations based on your perception then.Ultimately you become the president of UMNO and the PM, who etched the policy of divide and rule among the races is very well documented. Your iron fisted reign on the then government of the day, destroying the judiaciary, making a mockery of Law and Order, which you perceived as unnecessary evil to the existance of Morden Malaysia. Now you take a moral high ground in calling our PM to resign. His democratic reform in the judiaciary , the liberal attitude to press freedom is now unwelcome to you. You seem to be in the realm of your own delusion and you play to the race gallaery very well. Congrats.

If Tun was a racist...I dont know how many Indians in malaysia has turned into successful businessmen and professionals...take Tan Sri Anandan Krishnan for example...are u guys blind?

nib said...

Salam YB Tun,
Kawan ketawa ramai, kawan menangis amat kurang. Gunting dalam lipatan memang banyak. Musuh dalam selimut pun memang banyak. Api sentiasa dalam sekam

Namun apa nak jadi negara kita? Bolehkah wawasan 2020 dicapai menepati matlamatnya? Saya menjangkakan jika begini keadaaannya 1 hingga 2 tahun lagi, pasti huruhara akan berlaku dan lebih dahsyat dari 13 Mei.

Moga Tun dirahmati Sentiasa

Pak Sako said...

Pemuda Hiba 1:57 am:

Ananda Krishnan itu menjadi kaya kerana dia dari keluarga yang berharta dan dia berada di luar negeri. Dia membuat pakatan perniagaan dengan Sheikh Timur Tengah dan di United Kingdom, dan begitulah dia jadi billionaire.

Majoriti orang India di Malaysia tidak mencapai kejayaan seperti itu.

Harap faham.

samurai melayu said...

Salam AYAHANDA RAKYAT
Wawasan 2020 bukan titik penyudah
Bagi generasi mendatang ia bermula.
Izinkan,

Not many people knew the dream of the Tun when initiating the above wawasan 2020. Tun is one person who
doesnt make impromptu decisions but will get the historical facts before laiyng out whats good for today, better for tomorrow and the best for the future!
Its never an easy task to build a nation of so many races(ethnics), cultures, languages(dialects) and above all beliefs.
But asked ourselves, in the 22 years of his 'dictatorial' regime,
where and what we were then and where and what we had achieved and enjoyed when he left? Let's be grateful that god sent this leader to us.

May god bless the Rakyat and Thank you Ayahanda Tun yang kami hargai keringat and titisan airmata mu untuk kesejateraan bangsa dan negara.

Al fatihah, Amin

Assalamualaikum Tun,

Agaknya kalau Samy Velu membuat permohonan menjadi ahli Hindraf.
Adakah Samy Velu akan diterima menjadi ahlinya?

p/s - Jika Samy Velu ingin bersara menjadi Presiden MIC, for sure ianya akan diterima saperti kecil tapak tangan nyiru akan ditadahkan....kahkahkah

Umar Azmon said...

Dear Tun,

Whats happening to our country is the
reflection of the fallacy of democratic system. We never examine it when we got it. you was able to rule by your briliance. If it is democracy we took it from the French. Just look what happen after the Revolution. Now the Americans are propagating it as if it is the only way to govern. Is there a way where we can be govern justly without all these politicians messing things up? After all they think of their family first before other thing. TDM explore these avenues. Is there such thing as self governance? Or minimum interference from the so call politician.
