On the 11th of March, I visited Tanjung Piai which is situated in Pontian.
The southernmost point tip of Tanjung Piai, at the coordinates of 1°15’N, 103°30’E is not only the southernmost part of Malaysia but also the southernmost tip of the Eurasia mainland!
We stayed at the Tanjung Piai Resort which was connected to the land by long piers.
The whole complex was built on stilts and walking on the piers, we can enjoy the amazing views of the Straits of Johor and the beauty of the mangrove swampland.
We reached the resort during low tide and as we walked along the piers to our room, we can see the muddy ground of the mangrove swamp below the piers.
As night came the seawater started to rise and after a few hours, the water rose so high that one can even fish from the piers.
It was very beautiful during the night and walking on the piers over the seawater, I felt as if I was walking on piers over the ocean with the cool sea breeze blowing in my hair.
As I listened to the calming sounds of the waves and looked at the stars shining brightly above me, I was enchanted by the serenity of the surrounding.
It was amazing to look at the straight line of the bright lights coming from the ships as if there’s a street market over the dark water of the Straits of Johor in contrast to the darkness of the mangrove swampland on the opposite side.
Tanjung Piai is also a great place for enjoying fresh seafood; the crabs that we had for dinner was so fresh and tasty and I really enjoyed them.
“I am a Malay first!” stated Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as he accused DAP’s Parliamentary Leader, Lim Kit Siang’s statement as “to put a wedge between the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister.”
That happened six years ago when Tan Sri Muhyiddin was still the Deputy Prime Minister and the, “I am a Malay first” was regarded as a heroic statement by the members of UMNO, in accordance with UMNO’s spirit of “alif, ba, ta (agama, bangsa dan tanahair)” or religion, race and nation.
Below is the video of his statement originally released by MalaysiaKini’s KiniTV.
But now the former Deputy Prime Minister seems to change his mind.
He joined Tun Dr. Mahathir to team up with the enemies of UMNO who are against Islam, the Malay rights and the Federal Constitution such as Lim Kit Siang, Tony Pua, Teresa Kok, Tian Chua, Ambiga Sreenevasan, Maria Chin, and others.
By teaming up with those enemies of UMNO, he is now against his own party and what he said six years ago.
When he said, “I am a Malay first”, it automatically means he is also saying that he is a Muslim first because according to the interpretation of Malay in the Clause 2 of the Article 160 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia:
“…“Malay” means a person who professes the religion of Islam, habitually speaks the Malay language, conforms to Malay custom…”
So how could he becomes teammates with Lim Kit Siang and happily sharing a couch with him?
Has Tan Sri Muhyiddin forgotten that Lim Kit Siang had rudely made a malicious accusation that a verse from the Quran, the verse 120 of Surah Al-Baqarah caused religious hatred and blamed JAKIM for using the verse in a Khutbah Jumaat?
By teaming up with Lim Kit Siang who is clearly against Islam and the Malay rights, Tan Sri Muhyiddin is now against his own principles of Malay first.
His other new teammate, Tony Pua among others had humiliated the law and principals of Islam by making fun of the Islamic view regarding Valentines Day.
In his Chinese New Year video, Tony Phua again makes fun of the Muslims by mocking a Saudi Arabian Muslim in a very humiliated ways.
Another new teammate of Tan Sri Muhyiddin, Teresa Kok had ordered the Jawi script on road signs of Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Taman Seputeh to be abolished.
Jawi is the original script of the Malay language, and the Malay Language is the national Language according to the Article 152 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
(1) The national language shall be the Malay language and shall be in such script…
Tian Chua who is another of Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s new teammate, on February 2013 made a malicious and uncalled comment about the Lahad Datu standoff saying that the death of ten policemen and soldiers from our PDRM and ATM including nine Malays who were protecting Lahad Datu was just a “sandiwara UMNO” or a theatrical staged by UMNO as a conspiracy to distract and scare the people because of the general election.
Ambiga and Maria Chin are both Bersih leaders that organised illegal demonstrations against the government, creating havoc and disorder and promoting the anarchy ideology which is against the principals of the Malay and Islam.
They, who are also behind COMANGO, are fighting for the LGBT rights which is against Islam apart from fighting for parts of the Islamic laws to be abolished.
COMANGO demands Malaysia to:
Sign the International Covenant on Civil & Political Rights (ICCPR) which is against the Articles 3(1) and 11(4) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.
Sign the International Covenant on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) which is against Article 153 of the Federal Constitution that gives special rights and position of the Malays and the Bumiputras (indigenous people of the Sabah and Sarawak).
Sign SOGI Rights (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity) to legalise LGBTIQ which is against Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution and also the Malaysian law.
Demands that some enactments of the Syariah Law to be abolished which is against Article 3(1) and against the second principle of the Rukun Negara that says, “Loyalty to the king and country,” because the king is the protector of Islam.
What Bersih and COMANGO are fighting for are against the Federal Constitution as Islam is the religion of the Federation.
Tan Sri Muhyiddin whom once claimed to be a Malay first, whose religion must be Islam, has now become teammates with people who are against Islam and the special rights and position of the Malays and the Bumiputras.
Maybe now he has changed his mind about being a Malay first for, on the 27th of February 2016, he made a new statement:
“Ketepikan sentimen kaum, agama dan ideologi untuk ke arah mewujudkan sebuah kerajaan yang adil, amanah dan berintegriti.”
Isn’t it weird that just because he is against the Prime Minister, his personal principals and views have changed and he is now teammates to the people who are trying to destroy his party that had once made him a Deputy Prime Minister?
Is Lim Kit Siang more Malay and Islamic than PM Najib to the former Deputy Prime Minister?
His actions hurt the Malays and UMNO members who had voted for him.
It is clear that Tun Dr. Mahathir and his supporters including Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who are demanding for the Prime Minister Najib to step down, are willing to do anything to achieve their goals.
In his desperate attempt, Tun Dr. Mahathir brought his troop including Tan Sri Muhyiddin who is still an UMNO man to team up with Lim Kit Siang, Ambiga and Maria Chin whose dreams are only to kill UMNO.
What logical justification can Tun Dr. Mahathir gives about his latest move?
What is the use of having general elections if people like Tun Dr. Mahathir and friends can just force the Prime Minister of Malaysia to step down by making some declaration?
As senior politicians Tun Dr. Mahathir and his troop can clearly see that what is happening in Egypt and Libya after the Arab Spring can also happen to us if they revolt against the legally elected government.
Indeed, they are forcing the government to spend the country’s resources to solve problems created by them when the resources should be spent on building our nation.
Please look at what is happening in Beirut, Lebanon, when the government is financially and politically weak; they cannot even solve the trash problems which has now turned into a river of trash in the middle of the city.
Do they want that to happen to us in Malaysia too?
Do they care about us?
It is hard to see that they actually care about what will happen to the people whom they claim that they are fighting for, but instead they are using the people for their own agendas.
Anarchist politics will only destroy our country because the same action will happen again and again and there will be no strong government to lead and take care of us.
