Azwan Bro A Liability To UMNO?

UMNO leaders recognise the important role taken by the Malay/Muslim NGOs in strengthening the faith of the Muslims who are the core voters of UMNO.

During the opening speech of the of the assemblies of UMNO’s Wanita, Pemuda and Puteri wings, UMNO’s Deputy President said:

“Di samping itu, institusi-institusi Islam perlu diperkasa, penguatkuasaan undang-undang Islam perlu dipertegas dan kerjasama UMNO dengan NGO-NGO Islam perlu diperkukuh.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin.

But unlike his UMNO bosses, UMNO Youth Vice Chief, Khairul Azwan or better known as Azwan Bro, seems to be really angry at the Malay NGOs that he made two statements against them; first, before the Perhimpunan Agung UMNO 2014, and again, during the Perhimpunan Agung UMNO.

In his first statement Azwan Bro told the senior UMNO leaders to share his sentiment towards the right-wing NGOs and in his second statement, he made a harsh and uncalled statement towards those NGOs, even calling them, “radical”.

“Kekeliruan ini menyebabkan persepsi yang disebut oleh Timbalan Perdana Menteri semalam apabila UMNO dilihat begitu lemah dan dipayungi oleh NGO radikal yang seolah-olah kita tidak ada langsung peranan dan tanggungjawab, bukankah selama ini kita mempertahankan kesucian agama Islam dan memperjuangkan untung nasib orang Melayu di negara kita.” – Azwan Bro/Utusan.

I guess he made the second statement to answer Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s statement about the weakness of Pemuda UMNO and to justify that they are the ones who are fighting for the Malays and Islam.

“Di mana taring Pemuda? Di mana ketegasan Wanita? Di mana kelantangan Puteri? Kesannya, kita seolahnya ketandusan pemimpin untuk menjuarai kepentingan orang Melayu. Sehinggakan timbul cakap-cakap di luar sana yang mengatakan NGO Melayu lebih lantang daripada UMNO dalam memperjuangkan hak dan kepentingan Melayu.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Azwan Bro must either:

  1. Did not understand the statement made by his boss, or …

  2. He decided to use the NGOs as the black sheep to cover his own weaknesses.

Either way, Azwan Bro’s statements are really unwise and stupid because:

  1. It is too bad if he does not understand Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s statement, because the statement is so direct.

  2. It is a bad idea to use the right-wing NGOs as the black sheep when those NGOs are the ones who helped UMNO so it is no use to put the blame on them.

  3. Does he understand that UMNO is a right-wing party that fights for “agama, bangsa dan tanah air” as the right-wing NGOs?

  4. Fighting against those NGOs means fighting against those who helped and voted for UMNO in the last General Election, and UMNO cannot afford to lose their votes.

  5. That kind of arrogant statement will make those who may vote UMNO hate UMNO.

  6. Being liberal is against UMNO’s constitution.

  7. The liberals will not vote for UMNO.

  8. Is it unwise to unnecessarily turning your supporters and allies into enemies when you really their help.

Instead of blaming others he must work harder and not only busy promoting the ‘#lifestyle’ that does not even shows the values of Muslim’s characters when the core voters of UMNO are the Malays.

It is very narrow-minded to think that being liberal, promoting the ‘#lifestyle’ and making enemies with the right-wing NGOs can bring more votes from the younger generation to UMNO because those who are liberals will not vote for UMNO but will vote for the left-wing and liberal parties.

I guess Azwan Bro must stop making those kind of silly statements because it is against the UMNO’s constitution to be liberal and it will only bring hatred to UMNO, like ‘shoot yourself in the foot’.

Please stop being a liability to UMNO.

 

TS Muhyiddin: Akta Hasutan Harus Dikekalkan

Below are some of the interesting part of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s speech to officiate the Wanita, Pemuda and Puteri Umno assemblies. It was a very good speech that makes me respect Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin even more for being a brave fighter of the Malays.

“Kerana itu saya telah menyatakan pendirian saya mengenai Akta Hasutan. Bagi saya, Akta ini wajar dikekalkan dengan beberapa penambahbaikan. Peruntukan khusus perlu dimasukkan untuk melarang mana-mana pihak daripada mempersoalkan jaminan perlembagaan mengenai kedudukan agama Islam sebagai Agama Persekutuan. Akta ini juga perlu menghalang mana-mana pihak daripada mempersoalkan hak penganut agama lain untuk mengamalkan kepercayaan agama masing-masing. Begitu juga dengan kedudukan tanah rezab Melayu dan Regimen Askar Melayu DiRaja yang merupakan sebahagian daripada wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu perlu dilindungi daripada perbuatan menghasut.

Apa yang penting ialah kita perlu melihat Akta Hasutan bukan sebagai akta yang hanya melindungi kepentingan orang Melayu, tetapi akta yang memelihara perpaduan dan keharmonian nasional.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Like most Malaysian, I totally agree with him. Akta Hasutan should not be abolished. As I mentioned in my post, “Is Proham Secretary-General Questioning Rights Of The Rulers?” the Akta Hasutan is very important to maintain the stability of our country.

May 13, 1969 has seen a bad racial riot and it can happen again if we are not careful. In fact, I’m not surprise if there are a small number of people who want such incident to happen. They’ll use Article 10 of the Federal Constitution to claim total freedom of speech even though they are aware that Article 10 is subjected to Clauses (2), (3) and (4), that among others restricts people from questioning the four sensitive issues. So, section 3 (1) (f) of the Akta Hasutan which protects the four sensitive issues is very important so that these issues will not be questioned even by the MPs in Parliament.

Below are the four sensitive issues:

  1. Article 152 of the Federal Constitution

  2. Article 153 of the Federal Constitution

  3. Part III

  4. Article 181 of the Federal Constitution

“Di samping itu, institusi-institusi Islam perlu diperkasa, penguatkuasaan undang-undang Islam perlu dipertegas dan kerjasama UMNO dengan NGO-NGO Islam perlu diperkukuh.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

I’m truly glad to hear this statement after UMNO Youth Vice Chief, Khairul Azwan’s unbelievable statement that angered a lot of Malay activists who are the supporters of UMNO. It is really odd when the UMNO Youth Vice Chief wants UMNO’s senior leaders to turn away from the people who are also fighting for “agama, bangsa dan negara”.

“Di mana taring Pemuda? Di mana ketegasan Wanita? Di mana kelantangan Puteri? Kesannya, kita seolahnya ketandusan pemimpin untuk menjuarai kepentingan orang Melayu. Sehinggakan timbul cakap-cakap di luar sana yang mengatakan NGO Melayu lebih lantang daripada UMNO dalam memperjuangkan hak dan kepentingan Melayu.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

There are more and more leaders who are lost and forgot which party they are in, for example, the Pemuda leaders. What did they do when people humiliate Islam and question thee four sensitive issues? On top of that, the Pemuda UMNO Youth Vice Chief wants the senior leaders of UMNO to be as liberal and forget the UMNO’s own constitution! Maybe they are too busy promoting their ‘#lifestyle’ to be cool and popular that they have ignored their responsibilities as Muslim leaders.

“Penghinaan ke atas umat Islam juga dilakukan secara terbuka. Selain itu, umat Islam juga sedang berhadapan dengan ancaman ekstremisme dan militanisme yang sekiranya tidak dibendung segera akan memberi kesan buruk kepada negara.” – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

I hope serious actions will be taken to solve this problems but I wonder if all of the leaders understand this problem, especially people like the UMNO Youth Chief who are not happy with the right wings NGOs who are fighting hard against this threat.
