Bersih was Held for the Interests of All Malaysians and On the Other Hand Himpun is planned for the interest of the Muslims but Why The Police Approved the Later and Not the Former? All Malaysians has the right to know the answer.
|1Malaysia : Muslim First, Malaysia Second!|
This coming Sataurday, 22nd October 2011, million of muslims are expected to gather at Shah Alam stadium to rally. The purpose of the gathering is to show solidarity among muslims in Malaysia against Christians. The rally has been given the permit by the police immediately. On the other hand BERSIH 2.0 was held to pushing the Election Commission of Malaysia (EC) to ensure free and fair elections in Malaysia. It demanded that the EC clean up the electoral roll, reform postal voting, use indelible ink, introduce a minimum 21-day campaign period, allow all parties free access to the media, and put an end to electoral fraud.The rally was organised by the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih). The rally was banned by Barisan Nasional government.
All Malaysians demand to know why Himpun was given the permit but not Bersih 2.0? Reason given by OCPD Asst Comm Zahedi Ayop in giving the permit was illogical. He said they approved the permit last week as the Himpun event was to be held inside a stadium (Shah Alam Stadium) and would not pose any public order situation. Bersih 2.0 organiser also applied to do the rally in the stadium but was not approved.
According to the organiser of Himpun, one objective of the rally is to "gauge the unity among Muslims particularly against the Christianisation efforts on Aug 3 by DUMC . But there is no evidence of such efforts. The census shows no Christians among Malays. The home minister has confirmed that there is no evidence of a conspiracy to make Malaysia a Christian state or to install a Christian prime minister. So why the need for an anti-apostasy demonstration?The demonstration is against Christian efforts to convert Muslims. There is no evidence of such efforts. So why the need for such demonstration? Why do the Muslims need to demonstrate against a non-existent threat? Can Christians demonstrate against Muslim efforts to convert Christians?
Najib has been spending millions of tax payer monies to promote 1Malaysia. Personally I felt that 1Malaysia is a good efforts by PM. The concept caters the needs of all sector of the plural society and to ensure equal distribution of wealth between racial groups, between states and federal. Integrity on the part of the government and the public sector is one matter. In order to move Malaysia towards a better society, identity and future hence unity and integration should promote co-operation between race, beliefs and region as one Malaysia, not as Sarawakian or Sabahan. The trust and aspiration of the people that 1Malaysia will bring about a greater nation must not be hampered. But based on action of certain people and parties, 1Malaysia will sure fail. As long as we have organization like PERKASA that promote Malay supremacy, Himpunan Sejuta Umat (Himpun) that opposed to Christians and the political parties like United Malay National Organisation (UMNO), Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) and the Malaysia Indian Congress (MIC) and also the individual like Perak's Mufti , the 1Malaysia will be just remained a rhetoric.
Well Najib, whatever the reasons given by your administration for double standard in issuing the permit between Bersih 2.0 and Himpun, we the Malaysians are closely watching you. Don't expected to get the same number of votes from the non-muslim voters in the coming election!
