USLA supports call for return of English medium schools


TUARAN: The United Sabah Lotud Association (USLA) full-heartedly supports the call made by former minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Rahman Dahlan, for the return of English medium schools.

USLA's president, Datuk Raymond Tombung, in a statement said it’s high time the long-standing issue is seriously addressed by the state and federal governments in view of the substantial decline in English mastery among Malaysians since the abandonment of the medium in schools in the 1970s.

“Poor English mastery is even reflected embarrassingly among political leaders, giving Malaysia a poor image at the international level,” Raymond said. “Hence, this situation should have long awakened the federal government into taking drastic action to reverse the trend.”

Raymond, who is also an Advisor to StarSabah, is also worried for the Gen-Ys of the natives who are now realising the critical importance of the English language and struggling to master it but having no proper avenue to hone their English-speaking skill.

“Because of this lack of proper learning source they are now speaking in broken English with cringy topsy-turvy grammar, losing out to non-natives in the job market and unable to continue their tertiary education abroad,” he pointed out. “Only those whose parents can afford to send their children to private schools are able to proceed to go to universities abroad.”

“I would urge all native NGOs to wake up to this need and fight loudly for the return of English medium schools for the sake of out Gen-Ys. We need to veer off from the current obsessive focus on cultural activities and look forward into the future with academic, intellectual and socioeconomic development. There is a need for balance between cultural preservation and education in the new age which is fast being dominated by new technologies such as artificial intelligence.

“We need to fully recognise that English as the world’s lingua franca is the vehicle to socioeconomic progress to move the natives upward to the level of being world citizens and leaders,” he said. “What we need now is a high-powered collective pressure from the native NGOs to call for the state and federal governments for the return of English medium schools. Such a change would benefit us meaningfully in the long run and would hopefully turn Sabah into a respected English-speaking state.

“Let us in one voice turn this legitimate desire into a strong and consistent political demand from our leaders,” he said.


*USLA sokong seruan Dahlan untuk kembalikan medium Inggeris.*
TUARAN: Persatuan Lotud Sabah Bersatu (USLA) memberikan sokongan penuh gesaan menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Rahman Dahlan agar dikembalikan sekolah medium bahasa Inggeris.
Presiden USLA, Datuk Raymond Tombung, dalam satu kenyataan berkata sudah sampai masanya isu lama ini diambil perhatian serius oleh kerajaan negeri dan persekutuan memandangkan penurunan ketara dalam penguasaan bahasa Inggeris di kalangan rakyat Malaysia sejak pengabaian penggunaan bahasa ini di sekolah-sekolah sejak tahun 1970-an.
"Kurangnya penguasaan bahasa Inggeris turut tercermin secara memalukan di kalangan pemimpin politik, yang memberi imej buruk kepada Malaysia di peringkat antarabangsa," kata Raymond. "Oleh itu, keadaan ini sepatutnya sudah lama menjadi kebimbangan kerajaan persekutuan untuk mengambil tindakan drastik untuk menebalikkan trend ini."
Raymond, yang juga seorang Penasihat kepada StarSabah, merasa bimbang mengenai keadaan generasi muda pribumi yang kini sedar akan kepentingan kritikal bahasa Inggeris tetapi menghadapi kesukaran untuk menguasainya kerana tidak ada sumber pembelajaran yang betul untuk meningkatkan kemahiran mereka bertutur dalam bahasa Inggeris.
"Kerana kekurangan sumber pembelajaran yang betul, mereka kini bertutur dalam bahasa Inggeris yang tidak sempunra dengan nahu yang menyedihkan. Maka mereka ketinggalan dalam pasaran kerja berbanding mereka yang bukanpribumi dan tidak mampu untuk meneruskan pendidikan tinggi di luar negara," katanya. "Hanya mereka yang ibubapa mereka mampu menghantar mereka ke sekolah swasta dpat melanjutkan pengajian ke universiti di luar negara."
"Saya menggesa semua NGO asal agar bangkit keada keperluan ini dan berjuang dengan lantang untuk pengembalian sekolah bermedium bahasa Inggeris demi kepentingan generasi muda pribumi. Kita perlu berpaling daripada terlalu fokus kepada aktiviti kebudayaan dan melihat ke hadapan ke arah pembangunan akademik, intelektual, dan sosioekonomi. Kita perlu memperseimbangkan usaha antara pemuliharaan budaya dan pendidikan dalam zaman baru yang semakin dikuasai oleh sains dan teknologi lebih-lebih dengan timbulnya kecerdasan buatan atau artificial intelligence (AI).
"Kita perlu mengakui sepenuhnya bahawa bahasa Inggeris sebagai lingua franka dunia adalah kenderaan kepada kemajuan sosioekonomi untuk memajukan pribumi ke tahap menjadi warga dan pemimpin dunia," katanya. "Apa yang kita perlukan sekarang adalah tekanan kolektif yang berkesan dari para NGO pribumi untuk meminta kerajaan negeri dan persekutuan agar segera dikembalikan sekolah medium bahasa Inggeris. Perubahan seperti ini akan memberi faedah yang bermakna jangka panjang dan diharapkan akan mengubah Sabah menjadi sebuah negeri bertutur bahasa Inggeris yang dihormati.
"Marilah kita bersuara bersama-sama demi mengubah impian yang cukup berasas ini menjadi tuntutan politik yang kukuh dan konsisten kepada para pemimpin kita," katanya.

NGOs say Prof James Chin's "10-Point Agreement" Reflects Failure of the Federation to Honour MA63


Prof James Chin proposed a "10-Point Agreement".


NGOs do not see any future for Sabah & Sarawak to remain in Malaysia

3rd December 2023

This is a joint statement by Sabah, Sarawak NGOs - namely Borneo Plight in Malaysia Foundation (Bopimafo), Sabah Sarawak Rights Australia New Zealand (SSRANZ), Saya Anak Sarawak (SAS) and Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK):

Mssrs Daniel John Jambun, Robert Pei and Peter John Jaban, the respective presidents of the 3 NGOs and PBK President Voon Lee Shan have issued a joint statement commenting on Professor James Chin’s “10-point Agreement” calling for “re-affirmation” of Sabah and Sarawak secular and pluralist rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) on the occasion of the 60 anniversary of the shaky federation.

“Chin’s 10-point agreement calls for the dream and promise of the Federation of Malaysia for the people of Sabah and Sarawak to be fulfilled without delay; reaffirm Sabah and Sarawak as equal partners with Malaya in the formation of the Federation of Malaysia; and reaffirm the unique status of the Borneo states under Article 1(2) of the Federal Constitution, distinct from the 11 states in Peninsular Malaysia, as enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement of 1963.

It also seeks to reaffirm that Sabah and Sarawak each possess exclusive territorial rights over the resources that are within their own territorial boundaries; reaffirm that every community in Sabah and Sarawak has the right to their distinct unique cultures and ceremonial expression, identity and language; reaffirm that Sabah and Sarawak as secular states, multi-religious society as promised by our forefathers; and reaffirm that all Sabahans and Sarawakians are equal citizens, and reject all forms of racism, religious intolerance, and supremacist ideology.” (quote: Borneo Post 30/11/23)

They noted that the Professor had summed up the widespread dissatisfaction of the people with the multiple and continuing violations of their fundamental MA63 rights by the Malaysian Federal government over 60 years. These have remained unfulfilled “dreams” and illusions.

They include the illegal alteration of the MA63 secular, pluralist and multicultural concept of Malaysia, Borneonisation, autonomous self-government, religious freedom, denial of citizenship and failure to develop and advance Sabah and Sarawak as agreed. This is starkly heightened by the lopsided economic development whereby Malaya has been developed with Sabah and Sarawak resources particularly oil and gas, while they have been left backward and impoverished with little progress even in basic structures and amenities.

The unhappiness recently flared up over the TV Sarawak’s Christmas Carol programme which rejected the Association of Churches in Sarawak’s (ACA) request to include the song “O Holy Night” in the programme because of official policy excluding “religious elements”. The ACA declined to join the celebration and issued a statement strongly criticising the censorship and asserting the religious freedom and secular nature of Sarawak society. This received popular support throughout Sarawak and the TV station management quickly backed down on the exclusion of the song.

In Sabah, there is a similar dissatisfaction over the failure to honour MA63 founding terms such as the MA63 stipulated payment of (Art 121D) 40% entitlement to annual tax revenue among many other issues especially lack of development, poverty and the “illegals” issue.

The NGOs and PBK presidents said, however, that it is doubtful that the re-affirmation would have any impact on the Malayans who have evaded honouring the MA63 for 60 years as exemplified by the denial of Sabah’s MA63 40% entitlement.

They said that the concept of a secular, pluralist and multicultural political system was one of several key basic or foundational terms for Sabah and Sarawak to give up real independence for Malaysia. However, this concept has since the implementation of the New Economic Policy in 1971 been altered and replaced with an institutionalised race religion supremacist (Ketuanan Melayu) apartheid.

Further, it is unlikely that even if the Unity government agreed with the 10 Points, it would be able to gain any support from the Opposition which is made up of committed race religion fundamentalists sworn to dismantle the secular concept and replace Malaysia as an Iranian or Afghanistan style Islamic Caliphate and Constitution. The same people have declared that “Malaysia belonged to the Malays”.

Mr Voon the PBK president said that it was ironic the Professor had previously criticised PBK for seeking legal advice from a foreign lawyer who declared that Malaysia was a fraud. 

He said that the professor's 10-point call for re-affirmation of Sabah Sarawak rights in reality confirmed that Malaysia was created with promises which never fulfilled or have been removed and therefore were misleading and a fraud. 

He cited the British colonial office as having commented with concern in 1963 that the Malayans' promise that SS would have "accelerated development" in Malaysia was a "false prospectus". 

Mr Voon who filed a suit in the High Court of Borneo in 2021 to declare MA63 invalid, said the process of making MA63 was riddled with illegalities and deceit. 

Legal analysis of the making of MA63 has proven that it was, in fact, a null and void agreement from the beginning. This was because Singapore, North Borneo (Sabah) and Sarawak were still British-controlled colonies and not sovereign states with the legal capacity or competence to make international agreements. This view is supported by the International Court of Justice decision in the Chagos case 2019 and affirmed by the Mauritius vs. Maldives case iin 2021.

If MA63 was a validly made international treaty, it would have been terminated under International law, by the multiple violations of foundational and basic terms of the agreement and rendered it no longer binding. Either way, Sabah and Sarawak have the opportunity to seek independence which would free them to determine their own political destiny and social and economic development without foreign control.

The joint statement pointed out that the 20 and 18 Points were not binding agreements but just an expression of the people's desired terms for the federation. They said that there is no evidence of the agreements being signed with the UK or Malayan governments. According to the British colonial officials, the Sarawak 18 Points were never provided to them. They noted some of Sabah's Points like the "No State religion" stipulation was included in the Federal Constitution.

They questioned whether it was realistic to re-affirm the unfulfilled promises and prolong a union without meaning and benefit when it is so obvious that the agreed objectives of MA63 were never fulfilled but in fact, abandoned for 60 years. They said Sabah and Sarawak should look at the alternative solution of seeking an exit from the failed union.

They called on the respective Sabah and Sarawak state governments to seek a review of SS's position in Malaysia after the PAS party repeatedly rejected the concept of Malaysia as a secular country and the federation's failure to honour what was promised. It is widely anticipated that the PAS fundamentalist party will implement its Islamic Caliphate when it wins power and controls the Malaysian Parliament in a couple of elections time. The NGOs said the review of MA63 (if valid) would be timely and it was essential since it has already long been terminated by multiple breaches of fundamental terms for federation.

Sabah and Sarawak must seek lawful and peaceful means to Decolonise itself and work towards sovereign Independent nations.

Jalibin Paidi (kiri), aktivis masyarakat yang juga Presiden SSPR

Oleh Jalibin Paidi, 3-12-2023
1. Tahniah kepada semua MP Sabah yang berani dan komited menuntut perlaksanaan hak-hak dan kuasa merdeka Sabah dalam Persekutuan Malaysia.

2. Selepas setahun, nampaknya PMX sebiji sama dengan semua PM sebelum ini yang menidakkan hak-hak Sabah.

3. Malah, DS Najib jauh lebih baik dalam beberapa perkara apabila berkaitan Sabah.

4. Kegagalan PMX mematuhi keperluan Perlembagaan berkaitan hak 40% benar2 mengecewakan.

5. Kita tunggu pula kesudahan tuntutan Sabah Sarawak supaya 35% kerusi MP diperuntukkan buat dua Wilayah ini.

6. GPS dan GRS perlu buat ketetapan bersama mendesak ditunaikan hak 40% dan 35% dalam tempoh tertentu.

7. Kegagalan PMX memenuhi tuntutan bermaksud GPS GRS perlu tarik sokongan dan memilih PM yang mematuhi Perlembagaan.

Sabah Sarawak boleh.
Sabah Sarawak bukan milik Malaya.

Govt should allot some fund for cultural documentation in Budget 2024, says USLA


TUARAN: The United Sabah Lotud Association (USLA) here is making an urgent appeal to the state government to set aside part of the Budget 2024 for an urgent cultural documentation.

USLA’s president, Datuk Raymond Tombung, said the need to record the cultural heritages of the original peoples of Sabah is paramount in view of the fast disappearance of their practitioners.

“The most urgent of these is the recording down of the chants of the traditional priestesses or bobohizans or tantagas in Lotud,” he said. “There are so few of them who are still alive that soon they will none left to recite the chants that have been part of native life since time immemorial. The new generation may have  different spiritual adherences and beliefs but the priestesses deserve respect and consultation for their connection to our distant and forgotten past.
”While the younger generations now have converted to new religions, the ancient linguistic and spiritual proficiency of the priestesses are fertile sources of knowledge for people in the modern age,” he added. “Specifically, the chants of the priestesses are languages containing a massive amount of obscure and magical words which, if studied, will definitely enrich the modern mother tongues.“.”

Raymond pointed out that since the native mother tongues are now disappearing due to being supplanted by Malay and English, the effort to preserve them should be enhanced by adopting many beautiful words and expressions from the chants.
“The revival of traditional arts and crafts, music and dances is easy, but languages when lost is almost impossible to revive,” Raymond said. “Hence there is an urgent need to document the chants to strengthen the sporadic language revival efforts going in some places in Sabah.

“The problem is that documentation work is tedious, taking many years and very expensive to undertake, especially by non-professionals. This is the reason why this important work has been done only intermittently and neglected since a long time,” Raymond pointed out. “Because of this, the role of the government, maybe through the state Cultural Board, is critical in launching a full state-funded, and long-term, research project for cultural documentation.”


Versi Bahasa Malaysia:

KERAJAAN PERLU SEGERA LANCAR PROJEK DOKUMENTASI BUDAYA - USLA

TUARAN: Persatuan Lotud Bersatu Sabah (USLA) di sini merayu kepada kerajaan negeri untuk memperuntukkan sebahagian daripada Bajet 2024 bagi dokumentasi budaya yang kini sangat mendesak.

Presiden USLA, Datuk Raymond Tombung, menyatakan keperluan untuk merakam warisan budaya orang asal Sabah adalah penting memandangkan para pengamalnya semakin cepat hilang.

"Yang paling mendesak adalah merakam mantera tradisional atau rina’it para bobohizans atau dipanggil tantagas dalam budaya Lotud," katanya. "Sudah tinggal sedikit sahaja mereka  yang masih hidup, dan tidak lama lagi tiada daripada mereka yang tinggal untuk menzikirkan mantera kuno yang telah menjadi sebahagian daripada kehidupan pribumi  sejak zaman purba. Generasi baru mungkin mempunyai agama dengan kepercayaan rohani yang berbeza tetapi para tantagas tersebut layak mendapat penghormatan dan penghargaaan kerana ilmu merek dan pertalian mereka dengan masa lampau yang sudah jauh di belakang dan dilupakan oleh kita.

"Walaupun generasi muda kini telah menukar kepada agama baru, kecekapan bahasa dan spiritual yang kuno dari para tantagas tersebut adalah sumber pengetahuan yang kaya bagi kita orang di zaman moden," tambahnya. "Secara khusus, rina’it mereka adalah bahasa yang mengandungi banyak perkataan yang indah, luarbiasa dan mistik, yang jika dikaji dan direkodkan, pasti akan memperkayakan bahasa ibunda moden."

Raymond menekankan bahawa kerana bahasa ibunda kini semakin lenyap kerana digantikan oleh Bahasa Melayu dan Bahasa Inggeris, usaha untuk mengekalkannya perlu diperkukuhkan dengan mengambil banyak perkataan dan ungkapan yang indah dari rina’it tersebut.

"Penghidupan semula seni tradisional seperti kraftangan, muzik dan tarian adalah mudah, tetapi bahasa, apabila telah hilang hampir mustahil untuk dihidupkan semula," kata Raymond. "Oleh itu, terdapat keperluan yang mendesak untuk mendokumentasikan rina’it tantagas bagi memperkukuhkan usaha-usaha pemuliharaan bahasa yang sedang berjalan di beberapa tempat di Sabah.

"Masalah besarnya ialah, kerja mendokumentasi memerlukan banyak tenaga, mengambil masa bertahun-tahun, dan sangat mahal untuk dilakukan oleh orang-orang bukan profesional. Inilah sebabnya mengapa kerja penting ini telah dilakukan hanya secara tidak konsisten, malah terabai sejak begitu lama," jelas Raymond. "Oleh kerana itu, peranan kerajaan untuk mendokumentasi warisan budaya, mungkin melalui Lembaga Kebudayaan Negeri, adalah penting dalam melancarkan projek penyelidikan penuh yang dibiayai oleh kerajaan negeri, secara jangka panjang.”#

Profesor dari Sabah berjaya daftarkan Sabah International University (SIU) di US dan bakal ambil pelajar pertama tahun depan

 
Oleh Jayden Lisando, 30-11-2023
PUTATAN : Siapa kata anak tempatan Sabah tidak boleh menubuhkan pusat pengajian tinggi antarabangsa? Prof Dr Ariffin Willie Muhamad, tokoh pendidikan Sabah sukses mendaftarkan Sabah International University (SIU) di Amerika Syarikat !

SIU yang berpejabat di California ini beroperasi sebagai universiti yang mengaplikasi "blended pedagogy", milikan sepenuhnya syarikat Sabah, dijadual mula menawarkan beberapa kursus peringkat Sijil dan Diploma sehingga Master tahun depan.

Prof Dr Ariffin anak kelahiran Sandakan memberitahu Borneo Herald baru-baru ini, SIU ditubuhkan di Amerika Syarikat kerana Malaysia tidak lagi membenarkan pendaftaran sebarang universiti atau kolej sejak 15 tahun ini.

"Apa yang saya buat adalah untuk masa depan generasi kita. Kita akan menawarkan kursus yang relevan kepada orang Sabah dan industri di sini seperti pelancongan, pengurusan perniagaan, perladangan dan juga sains politik.

"Institut Kemahiran Sabah (IKS) yang saya terajui selama ini akan menyambut kursus SIU di Sabah dan kita akan menjalankan kombinasi pembelajaran dalam kelas, secara online dan juga praktikal," katanya ketika ditemui di pejabat IKS di Putatan dekat Kota Kinabalu.

Menurut Prof Dr Ariffin, pihaknya berjaya mengenal pasti barisan pasukan yang mantap dan bersemangat untuk pengurusan universiti, komiti akademik dan komiti senat.

Katanya penubuhan SIU disambut baik oleh beberapa rakan akademiknya dari Sabah dan juga Semenanjung yang telah menyatakan kesediaan mereka untuk menyumbang pengalaman dan kepakaran mereka sama ada sebagai pasukan pengurusan, penasihat mahupun tenaga pengajar.

"Saya juga memanggil rakan-rakan termasuk aktivis Sabah terutama mereka yang memiliki idea-idea menarik untuk pembangunan awal SIU. Saya yakin dengan sokongan ramai, SIU akan berjaya sebagai institusi pendidikan tinggi Sabah yang boleh dibanggakan nanti," katanya konfiden sambil menambah kos penubuhan SIU sejak 2022 ditanggungnya sendiri setakat ini.

Prof Dr Ariffin Willie Muhamad (kanan) turut memanggil aktivis Sabah seperti Kanul Gindol, dalam sesi percambahan idea untuk Sabah International University. Kanul adalah salah seorang pelajar PhD Sains Politik kendalian Prof Ariffin dari sebuah universiti Amerika.

Menurut Prof Dr Ariffin, SIU pada tahun-tahun permulaan akademiknya dijadual menawarkan kursus peringkat sijil kemahiran yang mengambil masa hingga enam bulan dan diiktiraf oleh kerajaan Malaysia sebelum menawarkan kursus peringkat Diploma dalam enam bidang iaitu pengurusan perhotelan, pentadbiran perniagaan, teknologi komunikasi dan informasi, pendidikan awal, sains politik dan pentadbiran awam.

Enam kursus ini akan dikendalikan menerusi empat sekolah atau jabatan iaitu sekolah perniagaan, sekolah pengurusan (hotel dan pelancongan), sekolah kemanusiaan dan sains sosial, serta sekolah teknologi maklumat.

"Saya yakin SIU akan berkembang dari setahun ke setahun kerana kita juga mengenal-pasti rakan kolaborasi dengan agensi kerajaan dan pemain industri atau pihak swasta yang bersedia bekerjasama dengan SIU dalam menyediakan atau memperkasa tenaga kerja di Sabah," katanya lagi.

Prof Dr Ariffin menaruh harapan SIU sebagai pusat pengajian jarak jauh dan terbuka, pada suatu hari nanti mengeluarkan graduan bermutu tinggi, dan akan membuka laluan kepada lebih ramai pelajar bukan saja Sabahan tapi dari pelbagai negara untuk mendapatkan pendidikan.#


Malay writer lambasts at the cocooned life of his fellow spoilt Malays

      Syed Akbar Ali with Dr Mahathir Mohamad

By Syed Akbar Ali
FOR the past 40 years or more the Malays have been cocooned away from the real world. A friend who used to be Chairman of a very large Malay corporation that survived almost completely on government handout projects and concessions said that the skill sets and the work ethics inside his organisation "have nothing to do" with the real world outside.

The entire Malay ecosystem was carefully nurtured to keep them away from mixing with the real world. Be it in business, education, social interactions, RELIGION, politics, language, sports, art and just about anything human beings do everyday.

The common theme in all these areas of "endeavour" were lower standards. Lower the bar.

For over 40 years the Malays have been dumbing down - at a time when the other non Malay communities have been making better strides and when other countries have been making giant strides.

Vietnam has announced that they will be manufacturing their own car the Vinfast. But it is a private sector effort with no taxpayers funds involved. The CEO and top managers are American, ex General Motors. The Vietnamese have already displayed the car at the Paris Auto Show.

Hiring American CEOs, displaying their cars in Paris - what does that mean? The Vietnamese are seeking out the outside world and saying "We are coming to join you". And they are doing this without taxpayer funding - meaning it is market driven.

In Malaysia we went the other way. We wanted to develop our country 'in our own mould'. This was a misnomer. What it really meant was 'We want to develop the Malays in their own mould'.

The mould had a very simple design. It was an all encompassing Malay / Muslim cocoon. No other light, sound, smells, taste and even fresh air could get into the Malay / Muslim cocoon from the outside. This has been going on for over 40 years.

The others, especially the Chinese and some Indians (not all) did not want to be part of this cocoon system. They have been clever and more fortunate. From very early on the Chinese caught on that the national education system will be going into the cocoon mode. Hence they invested heavily in their own education ecosystems.

They have held on tightly to the 1300 Chinese language primary schools in the country. And it has been successful. When compared to the government's "cocoon system" Chinese education has been much more successful in that they produce young people who can become productive citizens in the economy.
Since the beginning of time, there are only 61 Chinese language secondary schools in Malaysia ("independent" Chinese schools offering the UEC certificate). Which has always been politicised.

But there are bigger elephants than independent Chinese schools being born everyday. For example the Chinese have gone big into private schools which offer the O and A levels, etc. They are known as "international schools". There are now a sizeable number of these "private international schools" in Malaysia offering primary to secondary level school education. Many of these schools are run by the Chinese folks. The majority of the students, teachers and principals at these private schools are all Chinese. They are doing a good job, serving the country's needs quite well. Non-cocoon education system.

There is another huge side effect to this "Malay / Muslim cocoon". Which is what I want to talk about today. And that is about leadership.
Anywhere in the world, in any system of government whether a democracy, monarchy, communist dictatorship, socialist dictatorship, authoritarianism, Islamic theocracy, Hindu monarchy etc the leaders and the leadership WILL and MUST reflect the value system of the people or the society in that country.

1. Societies that are prone to violence and do not do much to curb anger and violence will produce leaders who will rely on violence to rule. Because that is what they understand.
2. Societies that do not like to listen to different points of view (especially about religion) will produce religious charlatans who will exploit the "no thinking zone".
3. Societies that have cocooned themselves away from the outside world or from people other than their own kind will produce leaders who will manipulate their "fears of the outside". This is NO rocket science.
4. Societies that do not compete will produce leaders who will frighten them with the "dangers of competition".

I can keep on going but the leaders of any society will and must reflect what goes on inside their own society.

Their leaders will and must be fully soaked to the skin and bone with that society's norms and value systems.

Kalau value system bagus, pemimpin pun bagus. Kalau value system tak bagus, pemimpin pun tak bagus.

They might have been born cerdik but they will never become pandai. Cerdik is the intelligence that you are born with. Pandai is the learning that you acquire.

In a cocooned environment, their cerdik people grow up to be 'tidak pandai' leaders. Because they have been denied an environment where they can compete and learn. They grew up inside a cocoon.

So can we expect 40 years of cocoon indoctrination to produce 'world class' ledership? Not likely.

Look at this screen grab here. Its an old Tanzanian folk tale. There was a flood and the river overflowed. The fish were swept into the submerged grass. A group of monkeys decided to "save" the fish. They picked up the fish carefully and placed the fish on high, dry ground.

This is what we are seeing in Malay society today. After over 40 years of being cocooned and growing up in a religious and racial slum, where ALL the standards have been lowered, we are now seeing their leaders who exactly reflect the lower standards of Malay / Muslim society.

This is the nail in the coffin. After 40 years of the airtight and watertight cocoon, now they really and honestly think that the rest of the world outside the cocoon is wrong. That indeed life inside their cocoon is the best in the world.

Their religion is the best despite its violence, hate, ignorance and poverty.

Their social norms are simply the best despite very strange aberrations in behaviour and the looming breakdowns in Malay society. (This is a very serious issue - please do not dismiss this lightly.)

They can ignore everything else (and even despise everything else) because it is outside their cocoon. Those who do not agree 'can leave the country'.

So you see the miserably failing Minister of Education Maszlee saying unbelievably dumb things like the "Chinese should watch Upin and Ipin to learn Malay". This is too stupid to even comment about.

In Port Dickson, the Brader spoke about using his own car to send his daughter to the university. That is all he has to offer. There is not much else going on inside his cocoon.
Rafizi kept playing up personal issues (where is your dasar / vision bro?)

By the way, can Rafizi show some audited accounts for all the money collected by Invoke? Some transparency would be good brader Rafizi. Talk is you have some difficulty showing an audit of what happened to all that money you collected.

Asyraf Wajdi once said (I was present) that Islamic banking can still function because the Malays do not know High Court Judge Justice Abdul Wahab Patail's ruling "against" Islamic banking.

Asyraf Wajdi has also just lost the elections. Their collective incompetence has seen UMNO being kicked out of government after 63 years.
And the religious cocoon Pis-Pus guys are kissing up to the Malay cocoon UMNO guys. As you can see in this montage:
At our government hospitals, water is leaking into the oxygen lines in the wards.
In government departments the cafeteria is still the center of the universe - not the work desk.

Soon after being appointed, the new Mayor of Kuala Lumpur visited the hawkers (warong folks). To show solidarity? The tikus population in Kuala Lumpur will certainly rejoice. They will continue enjoying the endless supply of food scraps thrown into the longkangs and the drains by the warong hawkers. Indonesian warong operators will also be very happy.
Government "seminars" / conferences still begin with long winded introductions, 10 am pisang goreng breaks, 12 pm lunch breaks and 3 pm curry puff breaks.

So how does the cocoon deal with these obvious failures, the obvious non performance and the increasing criticism?
Thats easy. Just shout louder, make more threats, show more anger, the so called tough language. More racist and religious posturing. Its just sad camouflage, a weak cover up for the cocoon's failure.

I strongly and firmly believe the Malays can be turned around. In about 15 years max.
Before that can happen, we must crack that cocoon.

Dibuang kerja kerana pakai rantai salib, apa mahu jadi dengan Malaysia?




Oleh Kanul Gindol, 20-11-2023
1. Satu laporan berita dari Kuala Lumpur hari ini yang memetik pengurus sebuah restoran Cina Muslim di ibu negara yang memberhentikan seorang stafnya atas sebab memakai rantai salib, menyedihkan dan tidak patut berulang.

2. Malaysia semakin menakutkan bagi orang yang berfikiran sederhana. Adakah orang bukan Islam tidak boleh bekerja di premis yang "dihebahkan" sebagai halal atau patuh syariah?

3. Bagaimana dengan pejabat-pejabat kerajaan atau pemimpin tertentu? Mereka tidak lagi akan mempertimbang mengambil staf yang memakai rantai salib pada masa ini?

4. Adakah ini sebabnya amat sukar bagi lepasan sekolah atau kolej dari kalangan Kristian mendapat pekerjaan di jabatan kerajaan sekarang? Sekarang bukan lagi menghairankan sesuatu pejabat atau unit jabatan kerajaan, semua stafnya hanya dari satu kumpulan masyarakat saja ! 

5. Ke tong sampah sudahkah semua formula perkongsian kuasa atau peluang kepada masyarakat berbilang bangsa di Malaysia?, termasuk di Sabah dan Sarawak yang selama ini konon terkenal dengan politik multi-rasial dan toleransi agama.

6. Sudahlah hampir kesemua jawatan tertinggi negara dimonopoli oleh satu golongan masyarakat saja, ini peluang-peluang di sektor swasta kawalan masyarakat tertentu juga semakin rasis.

7. Sudah tiba masanya Parlimen Malaysia dan DUN-DUN memperkenalkan akta dan enakmen bagi mengawal penindasan kaum dan agama terutama dalam peluang-peluang serta mengenakan penalti terhadap setiap perlakuan perkauman yang tiada justifikasi.

8. Adakah situasi semakin berkurangnya Ahli Parlimen beragama Kristian telah menyumbang kepada keadaan semakin menebalnya prasangka negatif terutama orang Islam terhadap bukan Islam. Saya teringat pada 2017 timbul isu kedai laundry di Johor yang melarang bukan Islam mencuci kain di laundry itu, sehingga Sultan Johor sendiri memberi titah teguran pedas kepada golongan Islam berfikiran begitu.

9. Dikepilkan ialah pecahan Ahli Parlimen Sabah mengikut agama pada 2023, di mana dari 26 MP Sabah (termasuk 1 dari Labuan), hanya enam MP Kristian dan tiga Buddhist, yang lain 17 lagi Muslim..


26 MP dari Sabah & Labuan 
(3 Buddhist, 6 Kristian & 17 Islam)

1. Kudat - MP Muslim
2. Kota Marudu - Muslim
3. Kota Belud - Muslim
4. Tuaran - Kristian 
5. Ranau - Kristian 
6. Sepanggar - Muslim
7. Kota Kinabalu - Buddhist
8. Penampang - Kristian 
9. Putatan - Muslim
10. Papar - Muslim
11. Kimanis - Muslim
12. Beaufort - Muslim
13. Sipitang - Muslim
14. Tenom - Muslim
15. Keningau - Kristian 
16. Pensiangan - Kristian 
17. Beluran - Kristian

Sekian.



Sabah patut belajar dari Vietnam tingkatkan hasil padi, hapus rasuah projek, kata tokoh pendidikan tempatan Prof Dr Ariffin


                 Prof Dr Ariffin Willie Muhamad

KOTA BELUD : Kerajaan Negeri digesa memberi fokus kepada penambahbaikan pengeluaran padi di Sabah terutama di daerah Kota Belud yang mempunyai kawasan sawah yang luas, jika serius mengenai sekuriti makanan.
          Prof Dr Ariffin di Kota Belud semalam. Di kanan beliau ialah Kanul Gindol.

Seorang tokoh pendidikan tinggi tempatan, Prof Dr Ariffin Willie Muhamad, berkata tiada sebab Sabah tidak boleh belajar dari pengalaman Vietnam dalam meningkatkan hasil padinya.

"Saya banyak kali melawat perusahaan padi di Vietnam dan banyak kita boleh belajar serta perlu buat untuk meneladani teknologi dan sistem pengurusan ladang padi," katanya kepada sekumpulan pemimpin masyarakat dari Tempasuk di sini semalam. 
Prof Dr Ariffin, yang juga Pengerusi Perhubungan Negeri Sabah bagi Parti Sedar Rakyat (SEDAR) berkata "rasuah" adalah satu penyebab utama kegagalan semua projek yang dijalankan oleh mana-mana kerajaan selama ini.

"Penyebab utama kegagalan projek awam ialah rasuah atau salah guna kuasa. Oleh itu rasuah mesti dihapuskan jika mahu program memajukan sawah padi dan projek pembangunan di Sabah berjaya, jika kita mahu maju," jelasnya lagi.

Antara pemimpin yang hadir ialah agronomis dan juga peguam muda dari Tempasuk.

Difahamkan juga pengeluaran padi di Kota Belud bukan pula meningkat malah merosot sejak penglibatan agensi IADA Kementerian Pertanian Persekutuan di sawah-sawah padi di kawasan Sangkir, Taun Gusi dan Tempasuk.

Kalau dulu hasil boleh mencecah dua tan metrik sehektar bagi semusim, kini hasil hanya lebih sikit setan metrik sehektar semusim.

Pengeluaran padi yang semakin merosot memburukkan lagi keadaan bekalan beras Sabah di mana hanya 17% dikeluarkan Sabah manakala 83% adalah diimport.

Bagi Semenanjung, 80% keperluan beras di sana ditampung pengeluaran beras tempatan, manakala hanya 20% adalah diimport. Ini berikutan peruntukan berbilion setiap tahun untuk memajukan sawah-sawah di Selangor dan Kedah sejak sekian lama.

Di Semenanjung juga diunjurkan sehektar sawah yang sekarang boleh mengeluarkan sehingga 5-6 tan metrik padi semusim boleh mencecah 10 tan metrik apabila teknologi lebih moden serta benih terbaru digunakan.

Turut hadir ialah aktivis Kanul Gindol yang menjadi tuan rumah pertemuan itu. Menurut Kanul, ia sebahagian pelayanan masyarakat beliau di Kota Belud untuk meningkatkan kesedaran awam mengenai situasi dan potensi mereka."#

Borneo and Malaysia history free of Malay politics

World has true history of Borneo and Malaysia free of Malay politics in university libraries!

https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2021/04/12/expert-slams-history-textbook-for-errors-pro-malay-bias/

The Borneo Territory of Sabah and Sarawak ought to teach their own unique histories including MA63 in school instead of the intentionally distorted Malay-Muslim centric history. 

Malaysian history, written by the gov't, isn't history but political propaganda of the worst kind like that promoted by Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Imperial Japan and South Africa under Apartheid.

AG will have to reply on Bahasa Kebangsaan. 

He should preferably consult DBP for subject matter expert opinion on Malay language. 

Indonesia's Opinion correct in linguistics and law.

Malaysian gov't opinion on Malay language is just political propaganda of the worst kind.

Mahathir's opinion that non-Malay be classified as Malay isn't correct under Article 160(2).

Malay isn't ethnicity but form of identity in S'pore and Malaya for Muslim domiciled or born in the two territories, by Merdeka 31 TV Aug 1957, and habitually speaking in the Malay language.

Integration and assimilation in Malaysia does not depend on non-Malay being classified as Malay.

Alteady there is blatant non' compliance on MA'63, the history book ought to be withdrawn and corrected, lest there  will be much disharmony among the various races in Malaysia and if not properly handled can cause civil unrest. 

The people in Sabah and Sarawak may, caused by the wrong or misleading facts in the history book, demand exit from Malaysia more aggressively.

Sabahans and Sarawakians are now aware that Sabah and Sarawak has a right to seek exit from Malaysia peacefully like what Singapore did in 1965.#

Sabah, Sarawak better distance from Anwar's support of Hamas, warn Borneo top activists in support of each other's statements

PRESS STATEMENT
12 November 2023



DON'T LET THE BORNEO TERRITORY OF SABAH AND SARAWAK BECOME THE NEXT GAZA

Sarawakian activist Peter John Jaban is warning the Sarawak government to guard its 
immigration autonomy carefully as Prime Minister Datuk Sri Anwar Ibrahim maintains his support for Hamas, just as SUHAKAM predicts a likely influx of refugees from Palestine. He is calling on the authorities to prioritise Sarawak’s demographic mix and social harmony, reminding them that the state has its own social issues to contend with before it seeks to  support the personal agenda of the Prime Minister.

Peter John said: “The whole world is horrified by what is happening to Palestinian civilians 
caught up the conflict. Of course, Sarawakians feel keenly for all victims of war. Our Prime 
Minister’s insistence in maintaining his support for Hamas, however, is a different matter. 
Hamas is an Islamist, militant movement which is directly responsible for this phase of 
conflict and for the killing of Israeli citizens, many of them young children or elderly. It also 
openly supports the imposition of an Islamic Caliphate and has demonstrated that it is 
prepared to use terrorism to further this.”

“Anwar’s continuing support for Hamas in particular suggests that there will be little attempt  or requirement to properly vet any asylum seekers from Palestine. This risks entry by radicalised and violent factions who could disturb the social fabric of moderate and multicultural Malaysia. This issue is all the more pressing in Sarawak, the only non-Muslim majority state in the country, also recently identified as one of the poorest states in the 
Federation. This is why we are calling on the Sarawak government to stand firm in 
controlling our borders.”

He went on to say: “Sarawak has already seen controversial Ustaz Abdul Somad Batubara 
preach in Kuching earlier this year, despite him being refused entry from several other 
countries, including Singapore. We have also seen our Deputy Premier earlier this year 
claiming that the Madinah Charter would form a good basis for the constitution of a 
multiracial, secular state. Sarawakians must guard carefully against radical influences. We 
must learn from the experiences of our neighbouring Borneo state which has already 
experienced massive demographic shifts over the last few decades.”

Any suggestion that Hamas members could gain asylum in Malaysia should be rejected, 
especially by the Sarawak government. If their Arab neighbours continue to deny them 
asylum, then what business does Malaysia have in going against global policy?

Regardless, if Anwar insists on isolating himself, Sarawak should not follow blindly. This is the reason we retained our immigration autonomy; so that we could retain our own character and individuality and protect our own economic development. Support for a terrorist organisation cannot be part of that.

Meanwhile in Kota Kinabalu, two of Peter's colleagues, Daniel John Jambun and Kanul Gindol issued their own statements supporting his call.

Daniel, the President of Borneo's Plight in Malaysia Foundation, fully supports Peter's warning to the GPS government and reminds the GRS government in Sabah to do the same by tightening the immigration laws.

"Sabah is already swarmed with illegal  immigrants from neighbouring countries squatting illegally in 543 colonies spread throughout the state.

"Any influx of refugees from Palestine will turn Sabah into a terrorist haven which would then be very hard to control as can be seen and felt now," stressed Daniel.

Kanul, in his short message of support said: "Borneo should not be allowed to be made the human and economic shields for Malaysia just because of the folly of one particular party supporting a condemned terrorist organisation."

Malaysia should end proxy government imposed on Sabah and Sarawak...

                          Voon Lee Shan

PROXY government facilitates Occupation, non-compliance on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA'63), brought in internal colonisation policies, and made the Federal government look the other way on the Southeast Asia Sea!
                      Daniel John Jambun

By Voon Lee Shan, Daniel John Jambun and Kanul Gindol, 31-10-2023
THE statement by several Malay NGO, attacking Sabah and Sarawak NGO on the Palestine Solidarity Week in schools in Malaya, must be kept in perspective.

Palestine isn't the only occupied state in the world suffering human rights violations. There are other people as well, from Yemen to Syria, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, suffering under tyrannical rulers.

In law, Article 8 in Malaysia, there can be no discrimination. The Constitution cannot be seen as going against itself.

Politics and international conflicts must be kept out of schools. 

It's an offence, under law, if even toy guns are carried by school children and teachers during Palestine Solidarity Week beginning Sun 29 Oct 2023. It's double standards if action isn't taken on the toy guns displayed in public.

The radicalisation of school children must stop. We are not sending our children to school to become terrorists in foreign conflicts.

Those who are itching for fight in the Gaza Strip should go there. Instead, they disrupt the peace and harmony in Malaysia.

Sabah and Sarawak, it must be stressed, have been occupied by Malaysia for 60 years.

Proxy government in Sabah and Sarawak facilitates Occupation, non-compliance on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA'63), brought in internal colonisation policies, and made the Federal government look the other way on the Southeast Asia Sea. Malaysia should end proxy government imposed on Sabah and Sarawak. 

Colonialism, a form of criminal enterprise for accumulating capital, has been outlawed by international law.

When the Sarawak government seized land from Iban in Balai Ringin, sometime in 1982/1983, and gave it to certain people in politics,  Adenan Satem was "racist" towards those who lost their land for no rhyme or reason.

Many can recall him inviting the Iban for "tea and sympathy". It reeked of unbridled "racism", xenophobia, prejudice and hate.

Adenan only stopped making "racist statements" when he became Chief Minister.

Again, the Sarawak government, like that in Sabah, is a proxy government run by local tyrants and control freaks with licence on corruption.

The AG, IGP, MACC and Bank Negara are all not functioning to expectations on people "deriving personal benefits" from bribery and corruption based on abuse of power, conflict of interest and criminal breach of trust.

The people of Sarawak have lost sovereignty to a small group, installed by the Federal government after ousting Stephen Kalong Ningkan in 1966.

The government in Sarawak has not changed since 1966. The First Past the Post System fell on undemocratic soil. In the absence of one to one, there are no run-offs. Many candidates are declared winners although they come in with less than 51 per cent of the votes counted. There's no consent of the governed, no legitimacy, no democracy, no sovereignty.

It's the duty of the international community and the Federal government to restore the sovereignty of the people of Sarawak.

Orang Asal (Original People) are the majority in Sarawak.

Christian forms about 62% per cent of the population in Sarawak.

Yet, they are being denied the right to rule their own country. The Orang Asal have lost so much NCR (native customary rights) land because NCR cases don't start at the Land Office.

The High Court has no jurisdiction, as the court of 1st instance, on NCR land cases.

The Orang Asal are losing NCR land in the superior court because many judges don't understand Land Office, NCR land, Adat and Native Court.

Malay, having no Adat except among Minangkabau from Sumatra in Negri Sembilan,  don't have NCR land. Malay reserve land is government reserve gazetted by the British on Orang Asli (aboriginal people) land in Malaya.

VERSI BAHASA MALAYSIA👇

KERAJAAN proxy memudahkan Penjajahan, ketidakpatuhan terhadap Perjanjian Malaysia 1963 (MA'63), memperkenalkan dasar-dasar kolonialisasi internal, dan membuat Kerajaan Persekutuan berpaling daripada Laut China Selatan!

             
Oleh Voon Lee Shan, Daniel John Jambun, dan Kanul Gindol, 31-10-2023
KENYATAAN oleh beberapa NGO Melayu, menyerang NGO Sabah dan Sarawak mengenai Minggu Solidariti Palestin di sekolah-sekolah di Tanah Melayu, harus diambil dalam konteks yang betul.

Palestin bukanlah satu-satunya negara yang diduduki di dunia yang mengalami pelanggaran hak asasi manusia. Terdapat rakyat lain juga, dari Yemen ke Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, dan Pakistan, yang menderita di bawah pemerintah zalim.

Dalam undang-undang, Perkara 8 di Malaysia, tidak boleh ada diskriminasi. Perlembagaan tidak boleh dilihat sebagai bertentangan dengan dirinya sendiri.

Politik dan konflik antarabangsa harus dihindari daripada masuk ke dalam sekolah.

Ia adalah satu kesalahan di bawah undang-undang jika anak-anak sekolah dan guru membawa pistol mainan semasa Minggu Solidariti Palestin yang bermula pada Ahad, 29 Oktober 2023. Ini adalah piawaian berganda jika tindakan tidak diambil terhadap pistol mainan yang dipamerkan di tempat awam.

Pemelakuan radikalisme terhadap kanak-kanak sekolah mesti dihentikan. Kami tidak menghantar anak-anak kami ke sekolah untuk menjadi pengganas dalam konflik asing.

Mereka yang ingin bertempur di Jalur Gaza harus pergi ke sana. Sebaliknya, mereka mengganggu keamanan dan harmoni di Malaysia.

Sabah dan Sarawak, perlu ditekankan, telah diduduki oleh Malaysia selama 60 tahun.

Kerajaan proxy di Sabah dan Sarawak memudahkan Penjajahan, ketidakpatuhan terhadap Perjanjian Malaysia 1963 (MA'63), memperkenalkan dasar kolonialisasi internal, dan membuat Kerajaan Persekutuan berpaling daripada Laut China Selatan. Malaysia harus mengakhiri kerajaan proxy yang dikenakan ke atas Sabah dan Sarawak.

Pemerkasaan, sebuah bentuk entiti jenayah untuk mengumpul modal, telah diharamkan oleh undang-undang antarabangsa.

Apabila kerajaan Sarawak merampas tanah dari masyarakat Iban di Balai Ringin, pada suatu ketika pada tahun 1982/1983, dan memberikannya kepada beberapa individu dalam politik, Adenan Satem adalah "rasis" terhadap mereka yang kehilangan tanah mereka tanpa sebab yang jelas.

Ramai yang ingat dia mengundang masyarakat Iban untuk "minum teh dan simpati". Ia memancar amarah "rasis", xenophobia, prasangka, dan kebencian yang tidak terkawal.

Adenan hanya berhenti membuat "kempen rasis" apabila dia menjadi Ketua Menteri.

Sekali lagi, kerajaan Sarawak, seperti di Sabah, adalah kerajaan proxy yang diperintah oleh pemerintah tempatan yang otoriter dan pemikir kontrol dengan lesen untuk rasuah.

Peguam Negara, Ketua Polis Negara, SPRM, dan Bank Negara semuanya tidak berfungsi dengan baik dalam hal "mendapat manfaat peribadi" daripada suapan dan rasuah berdasarkan penyalahgunaan kuasa, konflik kepentingan, dan pelanggaran amanah jenayah.

Rakyat Sarawak telah kehilangan kedaulatan kepada kumpulan kecil, yang dipasang oleh kerajaan Persekutuan setelah menggulingkan Stephen Kalong Ningkan pada tahun 1966.

Kerajaan di Sarawak tidak berubah sejak 1966. Sistem First Past the Post terjatuh di tanah yang tidak demokratik. Dalam ketiadaan satu lawan satu, tidak ada pilihan kedua. Banyak calon diisytiharkan sebagai pemenang walaupun mereka memenangi dengan kurang daripada 51 peratus undi yang dihitung. Tiada persetujuan pemerintah, tiada legitimasi, tiada demokrasi, tiada kedaulatan.

Tugas masyarakat antarabangsa dan Kerajaan Persekutuan adalah untuk mengembalikan kedaulatan rakyat Sarawak.

Orang Asal adalah majoriti di Sarawak.

Kristian membentuk kira-kira 62% penduduk Sarawak.

Namun, mereka dinafikan hak untuk memerintah negara mereka sendiri. Orang Asal telah kehilangan banyak tanah.#

Mental health scare at Labuan mission school?

Daniel John Jambun, 27-10-2023
The Education Ministry should refer some teachers from Malaya and local students, reportedly experiencing mental health scare at Labuan's sole mission school, for evaluation at the nearest medical centre. 

The medical evaluation will confirm, based on science, that the crucifixes placed at the mission school has no connection with the mental health scare experienced by some teachers and students. Apparently, those affected saw demons and wandering spirits and dancing lights.

The victims must have been suffering from depression, i.e. persistent feelings of sadness, before reaching the mental health scare stage. 

Demons, which drive delusions, are signs of forms of mental illness induced by stress unleashed by the immune system. Stress causes chemical imbalances in the brain. There's medication which can restore the brain chemistry in as little as three days. The healing process in serious cases take much longer and may include being institutionalised.

It's the court that can order institutionalisation, based on subject matter expert opinion, at the nearest mental hospital.

Mental health isn't medical issue but legal term.

The court will consider whether the mentally ill poses danger for the public. In that case, institutionalisation of those affected keeps the public from harm. It also prevents self-harm, including suicide, and stabbing incidents.

There have been reports in the media, not so long ago, that the Education Ministry discovered that one in seven teachers in Malaysia suffered from some form of mental illness. We no longer hear about these teachers in the media. The Education Ministry should clear the air.

If true, these teachers should be relieved of teaching duties and assigned light duties, enrolled at day care centre, and placed under medical supervision.

Let's hope that the Education Ministry isn't dumping mentally ill teachers on Sabah, Labuan and Sarawak.

Again, it's unfortunate that incidents of mental health scare at the mission school has been linked with the crucifix placed in classrooms and at various spots in the school.

For those unfamiliar, the cross is just what it states and carries no body, while the crucifix carries the body of Jesus Christ, the Messiah for two billion people worldwide. 

For what it's worth, there's no work in nothingness on the other side.

It's true that those who watch many exorcism or ghost movies see the crucifix playing the main role in chasing out evil spirits.

All this remains the stuff of fiction found only in movies. In real life, the crucifix remains in the mind of the faithful, or worn on a chain around the neck, but as a cross.

It's not the done thing that the senior teacher who was against the crucifixes being taken down, apparently temporarily, has been transferred on 24 hours notice.

The senior teacher has become victim of circumstances. She should be recalled, having spent most of her teaching life at the school.

KENYATAAN MEDIA
27 OKTOBER 2023

Ketakutan terhadap kesihatan mental di sekolah misi Labuan...

Kementerian Pendidikan sepatutnya merujuk guru dan pelajar yang mengalami ketakutan kesihatan mental untuk dinilai di pusat perubatan terdekat!

Kementerian Pendidikan sepatutnya merujuk beberapa guru dari Malaya dan pelajar tempatan yang dilaporkan mengalami ketakutan kesihatan mental di sekolah misi tunggal Labuan untuk dinilai di pusat perubatan terdekat.

Penilaian perubatan akan mengesahkan, berdasarkan sains, bahawa salib yang diletakkan di sekolah misi tidak ada kaitan dengan ketakutan kesihatan mental yang dialami oleh beberapa guru dan pelajar. Nampaknya, individu yang terjejas melihat makhluk halus, roh-roh yang berkeliaran, dan cahaya yang bergerak.

Mangsa-mangsa ini mungkin telah mengalami kemurungan, iaitu perasaan sedih yang berterusan, sebelum mencapai peringkat ketakutan kesihatan mental. 

Makhluk halus, yang menghasilkan khayalan, adalah tanda-tanda penyakit mental yang dipicu oleh tekanan yang dilepaskan oleh sistem imun. Tekanan menyebabkan ketidakseimbangan kimia dalam otak. Terdapat ubat yang boleh mengembalikan kimia otak dalam masa tiga hari sahaja. Proses pemulihan dalam kes yang serius memerlukan masa yang lebih lama dan mungkin melibatkan penempatan di institusi.

Ianya adalah mahkamah yang boleh memerintahkan penempatan di institusi, berdasarkan pendapat pakar yang berkaitan, di hospital mental terdekat.

Kesihatan mental bukanlah isu perubatan tetapi istilah undang-undang.

Mahkamah akan menimbang sama ada individu yang mengalami gangguan mental membahayakan orang awam. Dalam kes itu, penempatan di institusi individu yang terjejas dapat melindungi orang awam dari bahaya. Ianya juga dapat mencegah penganiayaan diri sendiri, termasuk percubaan bunuh diri dan insiden penikaman.

Terdapat laporan dalam media, tidak begitu lama dulu, bahawa Kementerian Pendidikan mendapati satu daripada tujuh guru di Malaysia mengalami beberapa jenis penyakit mental. Kami tidak lagi mendengar mengenai guru-guru ini di media. Kementerian Pendidikan sepatutnya menerangkan perkara ini.

Jika benar, guru-guru ini patut digantung tugas mengajar dan diberikan tugas ringan, ditempatkan di pusat jagaan siang, dan diletakkan di bawah pengawasan perubatan.

Harap-harap Kementerian Pendidikan tidak memindahkan guru-guru yang mengalami masalah kesihatan mental ke Sabah, Labuan, dan Sarawak.

Sekali lagi, memanglah tidak beruntung bahawa insiden ketakutan kesihatan mental di sekolah misi dikaitkan dengan salib yang diletakkan di bilik darjah dan pelbagai tempat di sekolah.

Untuk mereka yang tidak tahu, salib hanyalah seperti yang dinyatakan dan tidak membawa tubuh, manakala salib yang memiliki gambaran tubuh Yesus Kristus, Mesias bagi dua bilion orang di seluruh dunia.

Walau bagaimanapun, pada hakikatnya, dalam kehidupan sebenar, salib kekal di minda orang yang beriman, atau dipakai sebagai rantai di sekitar leher, tetapi hanya sebagai salib.

Adalah kurang sesuai bahawa guru kanan yang menentang pengambilan salib turun, nampaknya buat sementara waktu, telah dipindahkan dalam tempoh 24 jam.

Guru kanan itu telah menjadi mangsa keadaan. Beliau patut dipanggil semula, setelah meluangkan masa yang panjang sebagai pendidik di sekolah tersebut.

*Tafsir (interpretation) can bring Islam for compliance with the rule of law . . .*

*The rule of law, not Quran, is the basis of the Constitution!*


Islamic 'law' practices are not possible as the rule of law is the basis of the Constitution.

Islam is not law but based on the concept of sin. That's the same as Karma.

In Islam, sunnatullah means God's law on cause and effect i.e. Karma.

The Supreme Court of India has declared that syariah isn't law but based on a person's willingness to accept it.

It would be unconstitutional to impose syariah on anyone.

In jurisdiction, God isn't source in law.

Law must have source to have jurisdiction, authority and power.

The court of law is only about law.

The court of law isn't about ethics, moral values, civilisational values including that based on Islam, theology, sin, God, righteousness, justice or truth.

There's greater emphasis on the spirit of the law in the rule of law, the basis of the Constitution, albeit read with the letter of the law.

The letter of the law, by itself, isn't law at all. It's dictatorship, rule BY law, rule by Man, the law of the jungle where anything goes for acting with impunity.

There's no legitimacy in the letter of the law, by itself, no democracy, no consent of the governed, and there has been loss of sovereignty.

In the rule of law, the manner in which the accused was convicted comes first. Conviction can follow if it has been perfected in law for perfection in law.

There must be compliance with procedures, procedural fairness, due process, and compliance with the greater emphasis on the spirit of the law in the rule of law, the basis of the Constitution, albeit read with the letter of the law. The letter of the law, by itself, isn't law at all.

There's law, no law, and where there can be no law.

No law, no crime.

There must be law before crime.

Nullum crimen sine lege ( Latin for no crime without law), remains the principle in criminal law, national and international.

The principle is interchangeable with nullum poena sine lege (Latin for no punishment without law).

It isn't possible for anyone to know law.

Law, ultimately, remains the power of language, showing proof of wide reading, ability to think on law and like a lawyer, and ability to fathom how the other side and the judge would think and rule.

The judge is bound by what happens in court, the  parties are bound by pleadings.

The court is about closure. There can be no closure without out of court settlement or finality in litigation.

Law schools, offering only academic programmes, often say that "it's a bit of a mystery where lawyers get skills".

Law schools don't impart courtroom skills and skills for law practice. Academic programmes can only be used for teaching law.

Islam remains about the Tafsir (interpretation) concept in the Quran.

Islam needs Tafsir throughout the ages, from time to time, for progressive thought in keeping with the times. Otherwise, Islam degenerates into Political Islam i.e. a form of rotten politics.

Tafsir may bring Islam one day to the rule of law.

In that case, as in Saudi Arabia, syariah would be considered as based on customary practices and therefore having force of law like Adat.

Adat is the 1st law in international law.

The Constitution, being based on the ultimate political documents which set forth the governing institutions of state, has force of law. 

The Constitution is based on the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1948, the Federation of Malaya Independence Act 1957 and the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA'63).

The governing institutions of state in Malaysia cannot be based only on 1948 and 1957. It must be based on 1963 as well.

There must be compliance on MA'63.

If MA63 was validly made, then there must be strict compliance with this international treaty.

*SARAWAK ADA SarawakPass, mana sudah Sabah IC*


KENYATAAN YAB Ketua Menteri Sabah Datuk Hajiji Noor 'KadSabah' bukan keutamaan amat mengecewakan..Nyata "IC Sabah" yang dilaung-laungkan rakan Hajiji dlm GRS selama ini tidak bermakna sama sekali bagi GRS.

Inilah contoh kes lain dicakap, lain dibuat. 

Hajiji kata isu lebih penting ialah menyelesaikan masalah air (tak cukup dan kotor), elektrik (bekalan putus-putus), jadi "IC Sabah" bukan keutamaan. Ini ada betul juga.

Ini macam mempermudahkan alasan. Adakah dia bercakap, kalau masalah air dan elektrik sudah selesai, barulah IC Sabah menjadi utama kembali?

Kita tanya mengenai IC Sabah, dia jawab kesediaannya memberi status Penduduk Tetap pula kepada rakyat Semenanjung yang sudah lama tinggal atau bekerja di Sabah seperti guru, doktor dan profesional lain. Ini patut dipuji kerana bersedia.

Kami fikir dengan menafikan kegunaan Kad Sabah seperti SarawakCard yang dicadang  Kerajaan Sarawak maka Sabah terlepas mendapat platform yang memperkukuh negeri Sabah.

Begitu juga dengan kengganan kerajaan GRS untuk mencontohi benda baik Sarawak iaitu mengubah nama jawatan ketua eksekutif negeri dari Ketua Menteri kepada Premier.

Sekian.
