Happy Merdeka, words must be backed up by deeds

50 plus years worth of nation building under a political coalition that stress on only they can bring development and unity. Where has it gotten us?


PM: Government will not tolerate anyone making racist remarks

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has warned the people against spreading “half-truths” on racial issues and said the Government has zero tolerance of racist remarks.

“We are aware of some SMSes that have been going around, (in which the content) is not accurate and is intended to raise (racial) sentiments,” he said.

Najib emphasised that action would be taken against those who made remarks that were racist in nature and unlawful, and also against those who vandalised places of worship such as churches or surau.

“Let’s not have people who spin the issue racially, as if we practise selective prosecution,” he said after chairing the Umno supreme council meeting at PWTC here yesterday evening.

Earlier in the day, Najib said the Government had zero tolerance for racist remarks by anyone.

Still having "simmering" intolerence that is even forbaded by all religion?

For some one who back tracked on his much touted NEM, the brief reply to this is, well what are you going to do to "anyone" whose name is

1) Dr Mahathir, with another recent gem


(TMI) KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 10 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has bluntly said that Barisan Nasional (BN) will not give more political power to the Chinese until the Malays expand their economic stake in the country where he once preached unity under Bangsa Malaysia.

2) Najib's very own Nasir Safat, who labelled Chinese and Indians without justification as prostitute and beggars

3) Ibrahim Ali

4) His own Deputy Prime Minister

5) the 2 Headmasters in Kulai and Merbok, as well as the clearly lopsided PDRM personnel


I’m a 16 year old student from SMK Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra,Kulai. I was very offended by the speech that was given by our school principle on the "pelancaran hari kemerdekaan"she raised many discipline matters but the way she said it was a great shock 2 us. Even the teachers are offended she used certain phrases such as india balik india cina balik cina,wearing sami strings r like dog collar if u add on a bell n also various others 2. We have also organised a press conference on saturday 14 August 2010.We are trying 2 do everything possible when our parents went 2 the police station 2 launch a report the school pengetua was already there and the policemen kept asking our parents 2 talk and sort this out, they did not accept the complaint that was handed in by our parents. In this kind of case we feel un secure and offended. this can lead the students in racial fights and even more. As a student we try to be unite and follow the theme of 1 Malaysia if this is the situation there are no point of saying 1 Malaysia the principle should be a role model of the school and for the students but this is not the proper way of a speech. This doesn’t show any characteristic of a moral value. Please sir, we need all the help we can get we would be grateful if there was something that sir can do to help us. Thank you. Student

5) Ahmad Ismail, the hero of Bukit Bendera branch

It is not only racial relationship that is in the spot light now but also how well Malaysia's justice and security system function?

Happy Merdeka Month, although it sounds hollow to me

However, kudos to the Negeri Sembilan PDRM who solved the paint attack on the surau without fuss, sensationalisation and quick to dismiss it as a youth prank and not racially motivated attack.

Kudos also to the Pakatan leadership in Negeri Sembilan who, base on creditable verbal information I received, made a concerted effort to liaise with the Surau committee, with a RM3,000 donation to defry the repair expenses. Syabas!
