Awang Selamat, your fellow Malaysian is asking how are you doing?

Najib: Time for all races to embrace, and not just tolerate, each other

KUALA LUMPUR, June 7 – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has called on all Malaysians to shift from racial tolerance to acceptance because it can bring strength to the country.

He said the paradigm shift was necessary so that no race would feel they only need to be tolerant with others when they also need to accept other races to form a plural society in Malaysia.

“To be tolerant alone, some may not like it but if the attitude is changed to acceptance, the plural society concept will be seen not just unique but also brings strength to our country,” he said at the SPM 2008 Excellent Student Award ceremony here last night.

Nice show dear Prime Minister. I got a 2 word answer to that:

I wonder if this writer is a person or a group of persons writing under a name that suggest anything but a "selamat" environment. We never know the real name(s) nor the writer(s) has the gut to have his/her photo published except being portrayed daily as a pompous, self- righteuos looking cartoon character.

The latest beautiful addition to nation building effort from this character apparently received feedback from a host of writers in print media as well as cyberspace, and why not given what he has written below....

Melayu dikhianati?
“....pelbagai pihak bukan Melayu yang bersikap terlalu rasis selepas Pilihan Raya Umum ke-12..”
If you look at non-racial base political parties like DAP, Parti Sosialis Malaysia, Gerakan, PPP, most of the members are non-Malays. Although we are seeing changes, Malays usually sign up with race-base parties (UMNO) or political parties with a religious platform, which by Malaysian norm, usually ties in with race identification (PAS). KeAdilan would appear to be a genuine non-race base political party with huge presence of Malay leadership and membership.

This fellow goes harping on about citizenship and all that but he failed to point out that all races have a role in making Malaysia as developed (or half-developed) that is today and he also failed to complete his analysis by considering the amount of taxes contributed by all Malaysians and frankly by Mahathir’s own admission, the race that AW has most bones to pick, pays the most.

Parting with sour grapes, this writer exhibited emotional, immature, discriminatory, irrational and anti-unity stance by ranting off:

Di manakah anda boleh mendapat layanan politik yang baik untuk kaum pendatang? Di manakah dalam sejarah dunia? Saya bertanya kepada anda. Ini adalah fakta. Siapakah anda untuk menjaga keselamatan kami?

My answer is America has a President whose ancestors been brought over from Africa as slaves, Chief Judge in the US is an Hispanic woman, the Environment Minister in Australia is a woman from Sabah, Peru had a president of Japanese descend, Malaysia now have a cordial relationship with Japanese who invaded and colonialised this country 6 decades ago .... so what makes you think you are so special?

And after ranting off in his office which is located in multiracial metropolis of Kuala Lumpur I presumed, he may have a teh tarik in a Indian Muslim stall, hopped into his car serviced by Chinese mechanics perhaps, drove home on the roads and street lights paid by taxes collected from all Malaysians. He might even watch Astro provided by a company owned by an Indian, find comfort in his property built by Chinese subcontractors and dozed off on his bed that must have touched various Malaysians en-route in its supply chain to his bedroom.

Good night and grow up, whoever you are.


  1. Either the Prime Minister is speaking with fork Tongue or he cannot control Utusan's " Awang
    Selamat " This 'Awang Selamat' character is a
    person with Blinkers on the sides of his temple,
    If he were to be made redundant, I bet my last Dollar that he'll not be able to land another Job
    as a writer. If he is lucky he may land himself a Street Sweeper perhaps. He is a Dreamer.

  3. Scope of Political Marketing Offer political Marketing Services

    Political Marketing is being used and implemented with different names and different shapes since centuries. In 1950 Political Marketing was defined as a separate subject please sees history of Political Marketing for reference and details.

    Still this subject is in developing phase and need to do a lot to formally recognize Political Marketing as separate subject. In my point of view Political Marketing is highly significant in all countries especially in democrat governments and more especially to developed countries. Political Marketing is essential for political parties, leaders, government and as well as for general public. Political Marketing brings stability in political culture of a country that in return brings prosperity in national economy at root and gross level. Without Political Marketing or misuse of Political Marketing it is really intricate to better understand public needs and it is so intricate to create and develop good governance in a society.

    To better understand the scope of Political Marketing I would like to quote two examples. 1st for the country where Political Marketing is being implement since many years and in contrast to this the another country where Political culture is not developed yet in parties as well as political leaders are not aware about Political Marketing.

    On 1st hand I will like to quote USA. Where we can see very clear that Americans are implementing Political Marketing since many years in America, before elections the candidates create and develop a philosophy for their election campaign. So they are clear about what they are communicating in their dialogue. At all level their philosophy remains same, their goals, mission and objective does not change, audience to audience and place to place.

    What ever they communicate for coalition parties or public, in New York or in any other state, the theme of their communication at all level remains same because they are well prepared, we can’t find any contradiction in their speeches, it builds harmony and trust in public. As a result we can see that in America normally election forecasting is done before elections by survey and pools and election result proofs those predictions.

    On other hand I would like to quote an example of a developing country where political culture is not as developed yet. We can see that in Pakistan there is political instability, political leaders in Pakistan are not well aware about the importance of Political Marketing due to lack of knowledge. There is no research, no philosophy and no proper developed campaign. One leader is talking and communicating other things compare to other leader of same party, even we can notice very clearly that same leader is communicating in different way with different theme and objective on different occasions and at different territories. Its due to lack of research, lack of proper philosophy and agenda and without preparation of any centralized campaign. As a result public don’t believe their promises and other parties get advantage of their contradictions, however we can see instability, lack of trust inside party and no clear vision.

    If we summarize all discussion and keep in mind both examples its clear that without research, developed philosophy and centralized political marketing and election campaign and theme it is impossible to build public trust and harmony at national level. we must give a direction to political activities to get good results for a better future.

    For the reason our organization, political marketing services slogan is “VOTE FOR TOMORROW” that describes well all functions of political marketing at all levels, government, political parties, leaders and for public.
