products of the BN rasist government...anti-racists on lambasting

In the mainstream media, AirAsia X chief executive Azran Osman Rani is being vilified for expressing disgust at Utusan Malaysia’s blatant racism against the Chinese community in the aftermath of Election 2013.

But Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s declaration that Malaysians unhappy with the election results can leave the country is being explained as a “personal opinion” and not the government’ stance.

Why the double standards?

And labelling Azran as anti-Malay is the unkindest cut as he only criticised Utusan Malaysia for its racist stance; he never attacked Malays. If anything, he should be lauded for his stand against racism.

Thus far, all mainstream media can do is trot out either discredited politicians and mosquitoes to agitate for action against Azran — ranging from Wanita Umno leader Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil to former Penang PKR Wanita chief Aminah Abdullah, saying in a text message that Azran’s act was akin to “waging war” against his own people.

Really? Why can’t Azran post “I am Malaysian. I am anti-racism. I am disgusted by Utusan’s editorial stance” in his Facebook and Twitter account without being slammed for it.

AirAsia X chairman Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz had to insist that Azran’s comment was made in his personal capacity after being twigged about it by her wing successor Shahrizat.

“No one has the right to deny others like Azran to state their views, albeit personal ones, in the social media on any issue,” Rafidah had said.

Didn’t Shahrizat say the same thing last year over her family’s cattle farm project having nothing to do her with her political career?

“It is a personal thing. They mentioned Shahrizat when I had nothing to do with it. I want to clear my name and my family’s name,” she said when testifying in her defamation suit against PKR politicians.

The thing is, Azran is not the minority. Most Malaysians will not accept or tolerate the blatant racism of Utusan Malaysia that appeared on May 7.

The mainstream media should instead focus on the racism that seems to prevail in Malaysia, rather than pick on a Malaysian who has stood up against such racism.

We need to tell the mainstream media and politicians like Ahmad Zahid that there can be a difference of opinion in Malaysia that should not result in vilification or asking people to quit or leave the country because they are not with you.

Utusan Malaysia, Ahmad Zahid and their supporters are not the Malaysia that we are now or aspire to be, especially under the 1 Malaysia concept.

Their responses are troubling and if it is the dominant notion, then we have become a nightmare of the Malaysian dream.






If those UMNO politicians use their head to think rather than their foul mouth, they would not have criticize Azran Osman. Instead they would have embrace such people to help them to reform and to help them to understand Malaysians better.

Azran is a typical example of a modern, educated and confident Malay brought up in good family and having the opportunity to work with various races and nationality. His thinking reflect most urban Malays. He has gone to good school and universities, having the opportunity to work is world class company like Mckenzie which in turn utilize his experience to benefit local companies such as Bursa Malaysia, Astro and now Air Asia X. Where ever goes he was always view as someone competence and earn his position through his ability rather than crony.

He would be a great asset to any company not mentioning to any political party who know how to tab into his experience and his moderate thinking. So please those corrupted and brainless politicians like Shahrizat and her comrades move a side to make way for moderate like Azran to show BN how to tab on various races and build them into strength rather than dividing them.

Azran, we salute you for the courage to speak up against the evils and doing what is good for the country. Air Asia X is going to benefit for having someone like you.

UMNO is exactly like a parent who pampers her child without any limits. The parents make the child feels special without knowing in later life he may become an adult who is an egoistic, attentions seeking and difficult to adjust with situation types. So all the wrongs done by the UMNO's members will never be sanctioned by thier parents so in his later life he will do things in his own way and become stubborn ,attentions seekers and un-coopeartive.He may find difficulty to compromise and deal with various ups and downs and deal with various issues rationally

Utusan Melayu and Zahid are the products of the BN rasist government. They belong to the age of dinosaurs and are like the proverbial 'katak di bawah tempurung"

waste of public funds...Government company applauds Cabinet appointment in full-page ads, draws flak

The government company set up to build affordable homes for the lower-income group was criticised today after it paid for full-page advertisements in Umno’s Utusan Malaysia and the MCA’s The Star to congratulate Datuk Husni Hanadzlah on his reappointment as second finance minister.

The advertisements by Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB) feature a colour photograph of Husni and is from the board of directors, management and staff.

According to an official from The Star, SPNB was charged RM59,529.60 for the advertisement.

An Utusan Malaysia official said the advertisement cost about RM37,000.

“Why is a statutory body using taxpayers’ money to congratulate the reappointment of a minister? This is the ultimate ball-carrying exercise.

“Whoever authorised this should be punished,” DAP lawmaker and national publicity chief Tony Pua told The Malaysian Insider.

SPNB is a fully-owned subsidiary of the Finance Ministry.

This is the second term Husni has held the finance portfolio together with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak who appointed himself finance minister I.

PKR communications director Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad has described the advertorials as a “waste” of public funds and typifies the administration’s obsession with glossy public relations exercises that had proven to be of little impact as seen from the just-concluded Election 2013.

“It’s highly unusual for a company, especially a government company, to congratulate one individual minister. It is a waste and sets a bad precedent.

“It typifies the kind of political fiefdom and obsession with public relations exercises that is becoming so prevalent under Najib but has no impact whatsoever,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

The Malaysian Insider had reported that the ruling Barisan Nasional’s (BN) poorer standing in Election 2013 had put a spotlight on its “war room” strategists whose plans with a substantial budget did not appear to stop the ruling coalition from losing more federal and state seats in the May 5 general election.

According to party sources, BN had also outsourced some of the strategy to public relations and branding experts such as APCO’s Paul Stadlen and TV3’s Datuk Seri Ahmad Farid Ridzuan but it appeared to no avail.

Stadlen has been Putrajaya’s main contact with the international media while Farid had been seconded from TV3 parent, Media Prima Bhd, to the Prime Minister’s Department for the past few years.

“They were spending money on local newspapers with shrinking circulation and TV stations that did not appeal to the young. What a waste of time and money,” said the source.

It has been estimated that BN had spent more than RM100 million directly and indirectly for the massive media campaign that encompassed print, television, billboards and online sites for Election 2013.

BN formed the government with a simple majority of 133 seats, which is seven fewer that what it garnered in Election 2008. The ruling coalition also lost the popular vote for the first time since 1969, scoring 48 per cent against PR’s 52 per cent.

The coalition, however, denied claims that its war room strategists had failed to achieve the pact’s Election 2013 targets, pointing out that it still retained control of Putrajaya and regained Kedah.

It also boasted that it managed to keep Perak from falling into PR’s control. The swing state was one of the four states that fell to the federal opposition in the 12th general election.






Almost 100K spend for a day of advertisement???
Do they know how long it take to earn 100K and they spend it in 1 day!!

Do they know how many extra unit of low cost flat can build with 100K!!
So if any family that can't get draw to buy the low cost flat, you should know why....

If only the Umno supporters could be informed of this waste of public fund and why, the opposition would have started their work to win over the 'blind' Malaysians. Telling your own supporters and not publicly to all , is just a waste of time as the root cause had not been corrected.

they have already started their gerrymendering ways. they are not going to change one bit. god save malaysia

Haul up the persons involved! What a waste of public money!
Unfortunately, we can expect to SEE NO ACTION taken against the persons involved, and on the contrary. the persons involved MAYBE PRAISED for such senseless, idiotic acts.

Please STOP making Malaysia a LAUGHING STOCK.

Laughing stock No.1: Locking up a reporter using ISA for her "safety".
Laughing stock No.2: Buying condos for cows.
Laughing stock No.3: Paying money for FaceBook.

and the list goes on.

This won't be the last as this is one of the way of keeping paper like the Utusan alive as the boycott by the people are showing effects on their circulation especially on their advertisers.

after robbing zakat money ...these bandits out fatwas follow the dictates of UMNO

Jamil: Muslims should forget ideological differences

Muslims in this country should forget their political ideology differences heightened during the recent 13th general election campaign and reunite now for the sake of unity of the ummah (Muslim community), said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharum.

He said Muslims must not drag on or prolong their differences as this could weaken the community.

“Surely during the election fever there were hot issues that we were divided about, but we should cast aside all ill feelings now in order to strengthen unity which is so crucial for the Muslim community.”

He told this to reporters after delivering the Friday sermon at Al-Ihsan Mosque in Kampung Berjaya, Jeniang, near here, today.

Jamil Khir said he would be going to the various states and discuss with the respective menteri besar or chief ministers on the government’s noble intention of strengthening the Islamic religious institutions towards uniting the Muslims.

On another note, he said to develop quality Muslim human capital, the religious learning syllabus at the mosques would be restructured and streamlined to avoid discrepancies






Corruption is not an ideology. One party wanting no corruption, fair and just Govt cannot give up those values. They are not ideologies. How come they cannot tell the difference?

If he truly believed in unity with different ideologies, he should first tell the PM to accept the Shia followers in Malaysia. If not his call is very suspicious and most will know why.

If the unity of Muslims result in good governance and the unity of Malaysians, we are all for it.

If not, what good will come out of it? UMNO is always calling for unity because they know slowly but surely their Muslim support is slipping away. They are doing this just because they want to retain power and not something noble.

Vell Paari...We thought you were great but finally also chicken out....!!!

On Waythamoorthy, Vell Paari says ‘no permanent enemies’ in politics

The decision to give P. Waythamoorthy a federal post shows that there are no “permanent enemies” in politics, MIC’s S. Vell Paari said today.

The MIC strategy director noted that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was willing to set aside Waythamoorthy’s previous criticisms against Barisan Nasional (BN) and prioritise the development of the Indian community instead, by appointing Waythamoorthy as a deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.

“Moral of the story, ‘there is no such thing as permanent friends or enemies in politics’,” said Vell Paari (picture) in a statement today.

“As far as I am concerned, the more Indians in government posts, the merrier,” added the MIC central working committee member.

The appointment of Waythamoorthy, who had fought for Indian rights through the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), appears to be a reward for his role in returning Indian support for BN.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that the Indian vote in Election 2013 was evenly split between BN and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) parties.

Less than three weeks before the May 5 general election, Waythamoorthy signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the BN government that was also headed by Najib then, purportedly to improve the Indian community’s economic position after negotiations with PR failed.

In 2007, Hindraf’s mass protest against the BN administration under then prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi led to the community’s rejection of BN in the 2008 general election.

Today, Vell Paari said that Najib had shown the importance of MIC by giving the health, as well as natural resources and environment Cabinet portfolios to MIC deputy president Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam and president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel respectively.

MIC vice-president Datuk M. Saravanan was appointed as the deputy minister of youth and sport, leaving his previous post as the deputy minister of the federal territories and urban well-being.

P. Kamalanathan, the party’s Putera co-ordinator, will be taking up the post of deputy minister II in the Ministry of Education and Higher Learning, after the two ministries were merged for the 13th Cabinet.

In the recently-concluded Election 2013, MIC won four out of nine federal seats contested ― one more than its three-seat victory in 2008 and the same number it had before polls. But the Indian-based party only took five of the 18 state seats contested, fewer than its 2008 win of seven seats.

Vell Paari, however, stressed today that MIC needed to revamp itself to remain relevant to Malaysians.

“We have to rebrand MIC’s platform for Malaysia and GE14 which is about at most 1,900 days away,” said the outspoken MIC leader.






Mr V. Paari....what about your earlier call (before the GE13 ) to Demand BN to take Actions on Zul and Ibrahim Ali......??? Gone with the wind....??? We thought you were Great to demand that but finally also chicken out....!!! Why...???

This you got right............MIC, Maklal Sakti now Hindraf all for personel gains leaving the indian poorer

Mic will be another gerakan in GE 14 , No one bothers about wathya as he as good as dead and he another yes man to curry favour najib.

UMNO's toilet paper to promote racism...‘What more does Kit Siang want?’, asks Utusan

result of foul plan May 13 by Mahathir ...Malay kill own people in 1985 also triggered  by mahathir ( UMNO )

Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia suggested today that by insulting Umno the DAP’s Lim Kit Siang could expect a strong reaction from Malays.

Under the headline “What more does Kit Siang want?”, the newspaper’s senior editor Zulkiflee Bakar accused Lim and the DAP of endangering the safety of Malaysians and breaking the law in a series of allegedly illegal rallies held in the past few days.

“What more does Kit Siang want? Isn’t it enough that during campaigning Kit Siang who supposedly fights for true democracy lets DAP leaders insult Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders? Isn’t he happy when DAP has succeeded in resisting PAS’s Islamic fight including for hudud?” asked Zulkiflee in his column.

“So we ask, what more does Kit Siang want? Didn’t he think that what he is doing right now, including insulting Umno leaders, might incite a reaction from the Malays?” he added, warning the DAP adviser not to “play with fire” in flaming the people’s sentiments.

The newspaper has been consistently highlighting the DAP and Chinese voters in its tone of coverage and editorials since last week’s general election.

In Election 2013, BN won the polls but lost the popular vote.

Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak had suggested a “Chinese tsunami” had caused his BN to record its worst-ever electoral results.

Utusan, the newspaper owned by Umno, has also suggested Chinese voters were provoking racial tensions by voting against BN, with one headline last week asking the question “Apa lagi Cina mahu? (What else do the Chinese want?)”

The PR rally at Kelana Jaya attracted a multiracial crowd, including a significant number of Malays, in the tens of thousands.
The newspaper — seen as being aligned with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad — and other party leaders have consistently argued that votes against the Umno-led BN were akin to voting against the Malays.

This is despite the fact that Pakatan Rakyat (PR) parties PAS and PKR are largely Malay-Muslim in their membership. The DAP also fielded Malay candidates in the elections.

On Saturday, Najib defended his party from accusations of racism, and instead accused the DAP of being racists.

Despite the claims from Umno, analyses of the Election 2013 results point to a urban-rural divide rather than a Malay-Chinese division in the way Malaysians voted last week.

While a majority of Chinese backed PR parties, a significant number of Malay voters also voted for the opposition parties, particularly in urban centres.

Yesterday, Datuk Zulkifli Noordin raised the spectre of May 13 when he accused the DAP and Lim of being behind Malaysia’s worst race riots even as Umno leaders continue to blame last week’s poor election results on a “Chinese tsunami” that was fanned by the PR party.

The controversial Perkasa vice-president, who was a direct BN losing candidate in Election 2013, made the allegations in a series of tweets sent out on the eve of the 44th anniversary of the riots.

Lim has frequently been the target of right-wing Malay groups who have singled him out for blame for the riots even though he was not even in Kuala Lumpur when the riots broke out.

Former Umno member Tamrin Ghafar had cleared Lim while on the stump of the Election 2013 campaign trail, saying that Umno itself was behind the riot.

The son of former Deputy Prime Minister Tun Abdul Ghafar Baba said he was told by former home minister, the late Tun Ghazali Shafie, that the May 13 riots were likely the result of an internal Umno coup against founding Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman.

Today, Utusan claimed that Lim had insulted Najib at one of his post-election rallies, where he allegedly said “the devil we know has become the prime minister”.

Utusan’s Zulkiflee suggested that the reason why Lim was still seething with anger despite winning more seats than its allies PAS and PKR was because the party has failed in manipulating certain “sane” Malays into accepting its “narrow politics”.

Utusan also ran several stories painting Chinese youths as the main participants of the two PR rallies in Kelana Jaya and Batu Kawan to protest last weekend’s general election results.

This is despite the multiracial crowd, including a significant turnout of Malays, in the tens of thousands who turned up in black for both rallies.

On its front page today, Utusan ran the headline “Golongan muda Cina monopoli perhimpunan haram” (Chinese youths monopolised illegal rallies) below another headline calling for Malays to unite through Umno and PAS co-operation.

Utusan claimed that 70 per cent of the turnout in Batu Kawan was made of Chinese youths, warning that they have caused massive traffic jams which will recur at several other rallies planned for Ipoh, Kuantan and Johor Baru.

The paper dedicated half a page to photos of Chinese youths in black protesting the polls result, including that of a “Silent Walk Protest” in MidValley Megamall shopping complex here last week, and the photos of youths holding inverted Malaysian flags previously displayed on its controversial front page.

This was then contrasted with coverage on the opposite page of a group of youths converging in Sungai Petani headlined “Anak muda sokong Najib” (Youths supporting Najib), referring to the prime minister.

In a photo, the group of youths held placards saying “Beli-belah di kedai Melayu & India” (Shop at Malay and Indian shops), “Terima kasih Mr Ali & Mr Maniam kerana mengundi” (Thank you Mr Ali and Mr Maniam for voting) and “ABC”, which stands for “Asalkan Bukan Cina” (Anything but Chinese).







Obviously utusan wants chaos - servant to certain political party - that is desperate to hold on to power. If this Chinese bashing is allowed to continue - it will lead us down a road of chaos. What we need is political maturity - and quality leadership - to reconcile Malaysian down a road free from racism and religious bigotry

apa lagi Utusan mahu??

Gathering has been peaceful..

Rakyat wants a free and fair government, without corruption. DO YOU????

Ape Lagi UMNO mahu ??

Sudah benkrap negara, apa lagi mahu ???

We should all work together to find ways to get this paper closed down ... legally through the courts.

It is making me feel so very angry and insecure by the day.

This UMNO must be voted out no matter what if it continues to allow this kind of editorial

We should make known globally how this paper supported by the government

If Umno is split into 3 to 4 camps don't blame DAP and don't bring in May 13 incident. Umno should blame themselves, no blame game, please ! Umno got more MP than GE 2008, right ?

' BODEK " Najib for ministerial posts .......zul kulom trying to provoke the 1969 racial riots...

Kit Siang denies ‘Malai-seh’ slogan, calls Zul Noordin ‘irresponsible liar’

zul kolom.... racism  species 

Lim Kit Siang today denied that he or the DAP had called for the death of Malays with the term “Malai-seh” during the bloody May 1969 riots, saying Datuk Zulkifli Noordin had committed sedition and criminal defamation with the allegation.

Lim, who is frequently targeted by right-wing Malay leaders as the protagonist behind the country’s worse racial clash in history, said Zulkifli’s remarks were merely lies uttered by a man who voters had rejected in the just-concluded Election 2013.

“After having been rejected in Shah Alam, even by the Malay voters, he continues to tell irresponsible lies.

“Now he speaks about May 13, accusing me of being responsible for the riots and for the slogan ‘Malai-seh’. It is not at all true, I was not even in Kuala Lumpur at the time,” Lim (picture) told The Malaysian Insider when contacted.

The Gelang Patah MP said the accusation was just a “figment” of Zulkifli’s imagination, and explained that the words “Malai-seh” had never been linked to him or any DAP leader in the White Paper on the May 13, 1969 incident.

He added that the White Paper had noted that an illegal procession had been held and the slogan “Malai-seh” was tossed about then but it was never linked to a particular individual.

In a series of postings on Twitter yesterday, Zulkifli accused the DAP and Lim of being behind the 1969 race riots, even as Umno leaders continue to blame last week’s poor election results on a “Chinese tsunami” that was fanned by the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) party.

The controversial Perkasa vice-president, who was a direct Barisan Nasional (BN) losing candidate in Election 2013, made the allegations in a series of tweets sent out on the eve of the 44th anniversary of the riots.

“Tomorrow is May 13... the 44th anniversary of race riots in Malaysia which was the atrocity of chauvinists including Kit Siang’s party which used the slogan Malai-Seh or Die Malays,” he tweeted late last night.

But former Umno member Tamrin Ghafar had already cleared Lim while on the stump of the Election 2013 campaign trail, saying that Umno itself was behind the riot.

The son of former Deputy Prime Minister Tun Abdul Ghafar Baba said he was told by former home minister, the late Tun Ghazali Shafie, that the May 13 riots were likely the result of an internal Umno coup against founding Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman.

According to police records, 196 people were killed in the riots which were largely clashes between Malay and Chinese groups, following the results of the general election held a few days earlier.

In the 1969 elections, the Alliance coalition of Umno, the MCA and MIC lost the popular vote but won the elections.

Lim said he regards Zulkifli’s remarks with “utter contempt” but did not say if he would take any action against the former Kulim Bandar Baharu MP, simply labelling the latter “desperate”.

“If he had said it during the campaign, my immediate recourse would be to cite him for sedition or criminal defamation and a police report can be lodged, or legal action taken.

“Now, I regard this with utter contempt,” he said.

When contacted, DAP publicity secretary Tony Pua said Zulkifli had lost his right to speak on behalf of Malaysians after he lost his bid for the Shah Alam federal seat in a contest against incumbent Khalid Samad of PAS.

The Petaling Jaya Utara MP added, however, that with Zulkifli running riot with his remarks without earning repudiation from BN or Umno leaders, it was clear that the controversial leader was representative “of what Umno is today”.

“Umno is becoming more and more far-right as they seek to protect their shrinking voter base,” he said.

Umno and its president, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, have blamed a “Chinese tsunami” for its losses in the just-concluded May 5 polls, despite several analyses of the results pointing to a urban-rural divide rather than a Malay-Chinese division. While a majority of Chinese backed PR parties, a significant number of Malay voters also voted for the opposition parties, particularly in urban centres.

Since the DAP became the target of Umno attacks, it has been backed by its PR partners PKR and PAS which are largely Malay parties.






YB Lim.....why not instigate a law suit against him and put him to the Zoo for Good....???
Alternately just Ignore this uncivilized moron who can not find a suitable place in this Society as only the Devils will welcome him like the TDM.......Don't wast time on this nut Yb.....
