Galeri Darurat Bukit Kepong telah dirasmikan oleh Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Johor, Tuanku Sutlan Ibrahim Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Iskandar, pada 23hb Februari 2017.
Galeri ini penting untuk dilawati oleh semua rakyat Malaysia, terutamanya generasi muda yang pada hari ini semakin terpengaruh dengan fahaman liberal, hedonisme dan semakin tidak peduli tentang ancaman terhadap negara bangsa.
Saya telah berpeluang melawat galeri ini pada tahun 2017; dan ianya telah memberikan kesan yang amat mendalam terhadap diri saya dalam menghayati sejarah kekejaman pengganas komunis yang mahu merampas pemerintahan negara.
Lawatan ini juga mengajar saya menghargai semangat perjuangan dan pengorbanan anggota keselamatan negara yang sanggup berkorban nyawa demi mempertahankan bumi Tanah Melayu ini.
Berbagai serangan ganas pengganas terhadap anggota keselamatan negara khasnya pasukan polis, digambarkan kembali melalui pameran audio-visual, artifek, dokumen, keratan akhbar dan sebagainya; yang mana apabila dihayati, akan memberikan kesedaran dan keinsafan khasnya kepada golongan seusia saya yang hidup di zaman yang serba senang ini
Kita akan dapat merasakan sendiri betapa kejamnya pengganas komunis yang amat memusuhi Raja-Raja Melayu, kerajaan Tanah Melayu, anggota-anggota keselamatan dan orang-orang yang tidak menyokong perjuangan mereka.
Malah, penghayatan sebegini mungkin tidak dapat kita rasai hanya daripada membaca buku teks sejarah sahaja.
Amat rugi kepada mereka yang tidak mengambil peluang untuk belajar memahami sejarah perjuangan negara bangsa di galeri ini.
Hanya melalui pemahaman yang mendalam dan kesedaran terhadap sejarah negara, barulah lahir semangat patriotik yang mendalam dan menjadikan kita lebih peka terhadap berbagai ancaman terhadap kedaulatan negara kita.
Lebih signifikan lagi, galeri ini dibina di kawasan asal tapak Balai Polis Bukit Kepong yang musnah dibakar oleh pengganas komunis ketika mereka dengan kejamnya menyerang Balai Polis Bukit Kepong pada 23 Februari 1950.
Berita Harian melaporkan bahawa Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) membuka kertas siasatan selepas menerima tiga laporan polis yang dibuat terhadap wartawan veteran, Datuk A Kadir Jasin berhubung artikel tulisannya yang mendedahkan perbelanjaan Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Muhammad V.
Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun, berkata siasatan dilakukan mengikut Akta Hasutan 1948, Seksyen 233 Akta Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) dan Seksyen 500 Kanun Keseksaan dan akan diserahkan kepada pihak Timbalan Pendakwa Raya untuk tindakan selanjutnya sebaik saja lengkap siasatan.
Berita Harian juga melaporkan di dalam tulisan di blog peribadinya, wartawan veteran itu juga mendedahkan sebanyak RM257 juta digunakan untuk perbelanjaan hidup dan peribadi Sultan Muhammad V dalam tempoh 16 bulan sejak dilantik sebagai Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
Galeri Darurat Bukit Kepong adalah sebuah muzium yang patut dilawati oleh seluruh rakyat Malaysia yang cintakan negara agar kita dapat menghargai perjuangan pihak polis dan melihat sendiri kekejaman pengganas komunis yang cuba merampas negara kita.
Pada tahun lepas, saya telah berpeluang melawat muzium yang dikendalikan dan dikawalselia oleh PDRM ini dan dapat menghayati dan memahami kejadian semasa peristiwa berdarah ini dengan lebih berkesan berbanding sebelum ini.
Lebih bermakna, Galeri Darurat Bukit Kepong ini dibina di kawasan asal Balai Polis Bukit Kepong yang telah diserang dengan ganas oleh pengganas komunis pada 23 Februari 1950.
Sudah 68 tahun berlalu semenjak tragedi hitam serangan ke atas Balai Polis Bukit Kepong di Johor yang mengorbankan 25 orang polis, keluarga mereka dan orang awam, apabila komunis bertindak ganas menyerang balai polis berkenaan dan akhirnya dengan kejam telah membakar balai polis tersebut.
Balai Polis Bukit Kepong ialah sebuah balai polis kecil yang terletak di tebing sungai pada selekoh Sungai Muar; di mana Bukit Kepong ialah sebuah perkampungan kecil yang terpencil yang pada ketika itu pengangkutan utama ke Bukit Kepong adalah dengan menaiki bot menyusuri Sungai Muar.
Hampir 200 orang pengganas komunis diketuai oleh seorang komunis Melayu bernama Muhammad Indera telah membuat serangan hendap ke atas balai polis itu yang diketuai oleh Sergeant 3493 Jamil Bin Mohd Shah dan membunuh hampir kesemua daripada 22 orang anggota polis yang bertugas di situ.
Pengganas komunis telah mengepung seluruh Balai Polis Bukit Kepong sebelum memulakan serangan ganas mereka dan percaya mereka akan dapat menawan balai polis itu dengan mudah.
Namun, walaupun dengan jumlah anggota yang amat sedikit berbanding jumlah musuh, pihak polis dengan cekal telah bertempur habis-habisan untuk mempertahankan Balai Polis Bukit Kepong dan tidak menyerah kalah mengakibatkan hampir kesemua anggota polis dibunuh dengan kejamnya bersama keluarga mereka, termasuk yang hangus terbakar apabila pengganas komunis membakar berek kelamin di situ.
Kita mesti mengambil iktibar daripada tindakan kejam dan tidak berkemanusiaan ini agar ianya memberi pengajaran kepada seluruh rakyat Malaysia supaya tidak terikut-ikut dengan fenomena neo-komunis dan neo-sosialis yang semakin mempengaruhi orang ramai di negara kita, khasnya golongan muda.
Generasi muda tidak boleh buta sejarah dan melupakan mereka yang telah berkorban nyawa demi membina dan mempertahankan kedaulatan negara ini.
Al-Fatihah buat semua perwira negara yang terkorban mempertahankan Tanah Melayu ini.

One out of the five ‘missing’ people, Peter Chong has been ‘found’!
Well, the police found out that he is not even lost after all, but went on a trip to Thailand without telling anyone.
That made some people went hysterical about his ‘disappearance’ and made all kinds of theories including conspiracy theories.
Some accused that he was abducted and openly blamed the Malaysian Police and the government for his disappearance, only to find out that he was on a trip.
So, they all went crazy over nothing, putting the blame on the innocents, pointing fingers to who ever they wish and condemning the authorities; and did all that for nothing!
That is the mentality of some people from the opposition parties, who are fast to blame others especially the government and the authority for everything without investigations.
So, since it is proven that they had wrongly accused others and the authorities, are they going to issue an apology?
.::Report by Free Malaysia Today::.
PETALING JAYA: The former aide to a PKR MP, who was said to have gone missing since April 5, has been found and has returned to Kuala Lumpur, Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar announced today.
“Missing Peter Chong is back from Pattaya this afternoon,” Khalid said on his Twitter account, while congratulating the police force.
Police took a statement from Chong at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport before he joined his family members about 2pm.
When contacted, Kuala Lumpur police chief Amar Singh Ishar Singh, said Chong told police he had gone to Hatyai with the intention of meeting his source who was to reveal more information on the disappearance of Pastor Koh Keng Joo.
Upon reaching Hatyai, he claims he was abducted and brought to Pattaya.
Upon release, he said he contacted his son who bought his return ticket home.
On Wednesday, Khalid had said police had information that Chong had crossed the border into Thailand at the Bukit Kayu Hitam checkpoint.
Chong, a former aide to PKR MP Sivarasa Rasiah, was said to have disappeared days after he related on Facebook about his conversation with a stranger, who warned him to be more careful in the wake of several cases of missing activists.
Chong’s son, Darryl, had lodged a police report on April 8 after attempts to contact his father failed. A task force was subsequently formed to look into Chong’s disappearance.
Chong’s disappearance came after the widely reported abduction of Pastor Raymond Koh, as well as the cases of Pastor Joshua Hilmy, his wife Ruth Hilmy and Perlis-based social acitivist Amri Che Mat.
Above is another arrogant and silly statement made by the PKR’s Batu Member of Parliament. Reading the news made me feel so humiliated and hurt because a politic leader of my country assumes that we Malaysian are unable to think straight and can be fooled by such illogical excuses over such a serious misconduct. And I cannot imagine the feelings of the families and friends of the victims of the Lahad Datu tragedy over the statement.
The Malaysian Parliament must conduct a course so that such Members of Parliament can learn the Rukun Negara and the meaning behind it so that they be patriotic and take their duties to the country seriously; and not putting their own selves above the sovereignty of our country.
The Star article is in red while my comments will be in blue.
PETALING JAYA: Batu MP Tian Chuahas said that both he and PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar regret the uneasiness caused by the pictures taken with Jacel Kiram during their trip to the Philippines but he maintains that they were unaware that they were taking the pictures with the self-styled Sulu princess.
Does Tian Chua mean that both he and Nurul Izzah did not know the participants of that small meeting and thought that Jacel is just another citizen of the Philippines?
They were only a very small number of people at the meeting. They would surely introduced themselves or be introduced by the organiser or the person who chaired the meeting. It is impossible for Nurul Izzah to not know that the lady in blue is Jacel Kiram, the daughter of the the self-proclaimed Sultan of Sulu except if she has such a short memory and cannot remember anything at all after a few minutes.
Or does Tian Chua meant to say that “they were unaware that they were taking the pictures with the self-styled Sulu princess” because when Jacel was enjoying the meal and chatting with Nurul Izzah as in the photo below, she was in disguise and was using another name?
Chua said that both he and Nurul were simply acting in accordance with the common practice of taking pictures with all parties when attending international conferences and that they did not realise who they were taking the photograph with.
From the photos published, that so-called “international conference” was not attended by hundreds of people that the participants do not know each other. Jacel Kiram is not unknown in Malaysia, and if Tian Chua and Nurul Izzah did not recognise Jacel Kiram or did not know her connections to the Lahad Datu tragedy; then they are not fit to be our Members of Parliament.
In fact, the news of former opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim being followed by the so called ‘Princess’ Jacel Kiram on Twitter went viral on the internet during the Lahad Datu tragedy in February 2013. It is a wonder that Tian Chua and Nurul Izzah who are very active on the internet did not recognise the popular daughter of the self proclaimed Sultan of Sulu even if she was introduced to her by another name at the meeting.
The MP also claimed that the issue of sovereignty was being politicised and that political parties should instead be united with regards to the issue of protecting the nations territorial integrity.
The issue of sovereignty was not politicised. Nurul Izzah is a Member of Parliament and like Jacel Kiram, she is not an unknown person. This issue is being raised because Nurul Izzah Anwar Ibrahim had a meeting with an enemy of Malaysia and later on took pictures with her, smiling as if Jacel is her best friend while holding placards calling for the release of a Malaysian prisoner, Anwar Ibrahim.
Now, isn’t the whole actions by them is a humiliation to our country and the victims of the Lahad Datu tragedy? The actions show disloyalty to the King and the country for using an enemy of the State to pressure the State to release a prisoner that was found guilty by the Federal Court.
“We regret that this has cause uneasiness among the people and Nurul Izzah has already apologised to the families of the victims, so why are we playing up his issue?” asked Chua.
Is this the mentality of the opposition leaders? If any of them did something wrong, no matter how serious it is and in this case a humiliation to our country, and he apologises, then things are considered solved and nobody should question and talk about it anymore.
The sovereignty of a country must be upheld by each and every citizen of the country, especially the leaders. Both Tian Chua and Nurul Izzah are not patriotic and it is a pity that they were elected as leaders by their voters.
He added that he had no problem with the police investigating him, and that they should go ahead if they wanted to.
Chua also said that “more concrete action” was needed to guarantee Sabah’s safety from “invaders” and despite being debated many times, there is a lack of defensive improvements seen in Sabah.
Looking for ways to divert the story? After his above statement and what he did before, he has no rights to belittle the work done by the government, PDRM and ATM in order to protect our country. It was the ATM that defeated the ‘Royal Sulu Army’ which was led by the uncle of Jacel Kiram, the lady in blue who participated in the ‘international conference’ together with Tian Chua and Nurul Izzah but whom they had no idea who was she.
And by placing inverted commas for the word invaders in the article, does The Star meant to imply that the ‘Royal Sulu Army’ are not invaders and that the attack on Lahad Datu that killed 10 victims from PDRM and ATM who were defending Sabah was just a fairy tale like claimed by Tian Chua in the video below?
Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had stated that Chua had been the person who arranged the meeting and that he was also responsible for contacting the Sulu sultanate.
Jacel is the daughter of self-styled Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III who ordered 200 members of his “Royal Sulu Army” to invade Lahad Datu in February 2013 to stake his claim over Sabah.
After international statements over international statements about our country made by Jacel Kiram with her photos all over the medias, it is so weird that the two Malaysian Members of Parliament who are internet savvy and actively complaining about the government, are still at lost of who she is. The Star reported, Tian Chua said “they were unaware that they were taking the pictures with the self-styled Sulu princess.”
