WhatsApp’s New Emoji Set – A Huge Mistake Made in the Malaysian Flag

3 11 2017

Popular communicating app, WhatsApp, recently introduced their own design of emoticons or emoji, in their 2.17.386 update for Android.

The update which was released late last month replaced the use of the Apple emoji with their own unique versions.

This ranges from the usual smiley emoji to the flags of most of the countries in the world.

I was scrolling through the list of it’s flag emojis and realised that something is not right with the emoji of the Malaysian flag, so I took a closer look at the emoji.

I found that the new WhatsApp emoji of Jalur Gemilang has 7 short stripes (4 red stripes and 3 white stripes); whereas in the Malaysian flag, the short stripes should be 8 (4 red stripes and 4 white stripes) and not 7 like the emoji.

That makes it no longer the image of Jalur Gemilang flown proudly by all Malaysians.

The flag of a country reflects the identity of the country, hence country flags must be respected not only by its people but also by the people of other countries.

Such a mistake regarding a country flag is a grave mistake, and as a loyal citizen of Malaysia, I find that the WhatsApp emoji of the Malaysian flag as an insult to the country.

WhatsApp is a huge company running one of the biggest communication platforms in the world; hence the mistake in a country flag emoji is uncalled for and a taint to the image of the company.

WhatsApp must issue an official apology letter to the government of Malaysia for this mistake in their new set of emoji and fix the mistake as soon as possible if the company has high respect for national flags as I do.

GE13: So It Is True That PKR Is After A Revolution?

4 05 2013

My big sister’s, Aeshah Adlina Weblog received an ‘interesting’ comment from ‘PKR 4 the win’ on her post, “Pakatan’s new Malaysia flag: Not a copycat? Turning Malaysia to a Republic?”

‘PKR 4 the win’ submitted this comment at 10:53 pm on 2013/04/25:

“President Soekarno was right when he said that malaysia is a country without ideology and identity.

There was no revolution and no struggle for independence in malaysia. The country was not created by the people, it was created by a deal between britain and sultans.

Malaysia does not have a state ideology and no real constitution. This country exclusively consists of deals and compromises. (just like that american style flag)

This injust corrupt monarchist regime can not survive if the people get a certain level of education and access to independent information.

It is just a matter of time until malaysia becomes a democratic republic, because even the brain of the most stupid conservative racist religious idiot will at some point develop if the general level of education rises.

weapon of BN: fear, racism and stupidity

weapon of PKR: education, information and justice”

How interesting!

“President Soekarno was right when he said that malaysia is a country without ideology and identity.”

First Soekarno was a leftist that supported socialist and communism ideologies.

Wikipedia says that:

“The early 1960s saw Sukarno veering Indonesia to the left by providing support and protection to the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) at the expense of the military and Islamists. He also embarked on a series of aggressive foreign policies under the rubric of anti-imperialism, with aid from Soviet Union and China.”

It is wrong for Soekarno to say that Malaysian has no ideology and identity.

I think Soekarno said that just because he did not agree with Malaysia’s political systems because Malaysia never and until today does not believe in socialism and communism.

“Malaysia does not have a state ideology and no real constitution. This country exclusively consists of deals and compromises. (just like that american style flag)”

Uncle Naser Disa taught me that Malaysia is an Islamic country and Malaysia has a very strong Federal Constitution that protects the people and the rights of the King and Sultans to protect Islam as the religion of the country.

I wonder if the commenter ever study our Federal Constitution before commenting.

Regarding, “just like that american style flag”; does it means that the commenter is against the Malaysian flag, ‘Jalur Gemilang’?

And does that means that the commenter is admitting that PKR and its allies want to change the Malaysian flag to a new flag which they called ‘Sang Saka Malaya’?

Those people accused that ‘Jalur Gemilang’ is similar to the flag of the United States but can’t they see that their ‘Sang Saka Malaya’ is almost the same as the Singaporean and the Indonesian flag?

The design of Sang Saka Malaya is also similar to the design and colours of socialist and the communist flags.

The commenter also complained and not happy about the monarch.

Complaining about the monarch means that the commenter wants Malaysia to be a republic country because without the king, Malaysia will become a republic country, and even a secular country which Malaysia is not and never has been.

Please read:

https://ahmadalikarim.wordpress.com/2012/09/03/a-new-malaysian-flag-a-sign-of-prs-revolution/

According to a very senior lawyer, Hj Mahamad Naser bin Disa, the word secular doesn’t exist in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia; and the Article 3 (1) says that:

“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.”

In fact judge Tun Salleh Abbas said that Malaysia only uses secular rules and not a secular country so that means the commenter is against the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

“It is just a matter of time until malaysia becomes a democratic republic”.

Time for Malaysia to become a democratic and republic country?

Thank you to the commenter for showing the true colours of PKR.

Now the cat is out of the bag, the commenter has revealed PKR’s big secret that is PKR does not want the king and is after a revolution or ‘Malaysian Spring’ to turn Malaysia into a left wings, secular, republic country that supports the same ideas as Soekarno.

Pecah tembelang PKR, dah terbongkarlah rahsia PKR.

The commenter also wrote:

“weapon of PKR: education, information and justice”

“JUSTICE”???

If PKR is fair, how can CheguBard said that he was tricked by PKR leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim as was recorded in a video? Please click here for the video

And how can a person speaks about justice in PKR when PKR leaders lied about their dreams to change our Federal Constitution and to turn Malaysia into a secular and a republic country?

Can a cheater or liar talks about JUSTICE?

And I also wonder why this commenter and PKR’s leaders, members and supporters love revolutions, wars and violence that they think all countries need revolutions and bloodsheds to be a great country?

 

That is why we should not vote for PAKATAN RAKYAT!

Vote for BARISAN NASIONAL!





Jalur Gemilang, Our Flag, Our Pride

7 09 2012

The Jalur Gemilang

Bersih 4 or Janji Bersih or Janji Demokrasi was over but a lot of people are still angry about the bad things they did.

And I am also angry especially about the Sang Saka Malaya issue that I think is dishonouring our country and the real independence fighters.

Sang Saka Malaya

When I first read the news about some demonstrators waving weird flags and distributing flyers saying that Jalur Gemilang must go and the weird flag should become the new flag of Malaysia, I was angry.

I felt that the actions were rude and unpatriotic and suspected that they want to turn Malaysia into a republic nation like Indonesia and Singapore.

This flyer was distributed at the Janji Bersih demonstration.

I love Jalur Gemilang and I love my country and I am angry when people do not respect the laws.

I keep on asking why must the demonstrators were so rude and what was so special about the weird flag to them?

Jalur Gemilang is very beautiful indeed, with pretty red and white stripes, beautiful crescent and star and with all the primary colours that describes the important facts about Malaysia.

The crescent represents Islam, the religion of the country, the 14 strips represents the 13 states and the federal government and the 14 points of the star represent their unity.

Blue symbolizes the unity of the Malaysian people; the yellow of the star and crescent is the royal colour of our royal rulers.

So I wonder why some people think that Sang Saka Malaya will be a better flag for Malaysia, unless if they have bad agendas.

Historian Prof. Ramlah Adam said that Sang Saka was the flag of the Kesatuan Melayu Muda (KMM) or Young Malays Union whose agenda was to join Malaysia and Republic Indonesia and turn Malaysia into a republic nation just like Indonesia.

After understanding the real facts, I feel even more angry; especially when PR leaders lied and claimed that Sang Saka Malaya was waved to honour the independence fighters and that the flag was a historical flag and a symbol of the fights for our independence.

Our real independence fighters are the fighters who supported the sultans as our rulers and not those who wanted to turn Malaysia into a republic nation!

So do the people who claim that Sang Saka Malaya is a symbol of the fights for our independence share the same dream with those people who tried to turn Malaysia into a republic nation?

Happy Merdeka Day/ Happy Independence Day

31 08 2010

Happy Merdeka Day ❗

It means it is Malaysia’s Independence Day.

Malaysia was independence from British on 31\8\57.

So, this year is our 53rd ‘Merdaka Day’ (Independence Day).

The Malaysian Flag (Jalur Gemilang)

The ‘Father of Independence’ or ‘Bapa Kemerdekaan’ is YM Tengku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj.

Tengku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj is the first Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Now the Prime Minister is Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak

People in Malaysia put the Malaysian flag at their houses.

I put my Malaysian flag at my house too.

I wonder what is the Argentinian Independence Day called ❓
