Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor’s Attendance at a Perkasa Fund-Raising Event on Saturday Night Demonstrates UMNO’s and the Prime Minister’s Political Commitment and Personal Obligation to Perkasa(en/cn).

It should now be crystal clear to the Malaysian people that the Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, as well as his Barisan Nasional Government, are open backers of the ultra-nationalist and racist movement, which masquerades as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in order to disguise its Government backing.

Last month, the Prime Minister told the country that the Barisan Nasional had nothing to do with Perkasa’s distribution of “white packets”, traditionally used for Chinese funerals, on Chinese New Year. But at Saturday’s event, the Perkasa leader, Datuk Ibrahim Ali, again reiterated that Perkasa would always support Najib and his administration’s policies, and even said that he was “in awe of Rosmah’s leadership”.

Najib’s refusal to condemn Perkasa for the “white packet” incident, or indeed any of Perkasa’s previous extreme acts, was followed by MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s refusal to bar MCA members from attending Perkasa functions. Najib himself has previously defended Perkasa, saying that the movement was “not so extreme” if one listened to them carefully.

Time and time again Malaysians have seen Perkasa and Ibrahim Ali being allowed by the Barisan Nasional Government to get away with the most seditious actions and statements. Despite acts such as his offer to fight a “crusade” against Christians, the burning of Bersih 2.0 Chairperson Datuk Ambiga’s picture and calling her a “dangerous Hindu woman” and warning the Chinese not to come join the Bersih 2.0 demonstration because “anything can happen”, no action whatsoever has been taken by the Barisan Nasional Government to moderate Perkasa’s extremist rhetoric.

Najib is playing a dangerous game by supporting and sponsoring Perkasa while at the same time supposedly promoting moderation and national unity through his empty 1Malaysia slogan. In May last year, Ibrahim Ali said that the Prime Minister had told him, “I am also a politician … The Malays are split (so) I have to play this game”.

All Malaysians who value moderation must be very worried indeed when Perkasa declares itself to be in full support of all the Barisan Nasional Government’s policies. As a result of their active as well as passive support of Perkasa, Najib, Rosmah and the Barisan Nasional Government must be held fully responsible for all Perkasa’s extremist and seditious actions and statements.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2012年2月20日在吉隆坡发表声明:

首相夫人拿汀斯里罗斯玛于星期六出席土著权威组织筹款晚宴,证明巫统和首相对土权拥有政治承诺兼个人义务。

首相夫人拿汀斯里罗斯玛于星期六出席土著权威组织筹款晚宴,证明巫统和首相对土权拥有政治承诺兼个人义务。

现在马来西亚人应该很清楚,首相拿督斯里纳吉以及国阵政府,就是极端民族主义及种族主义运动的支持者,他们戴上非政府组织的假面具,以掩饰它的后台是政府的事实。

上个月,首相告诉国人,国阵与土权在农历新年期间派“白包”(一般只在华人葬礼才用)的事件无关。但是,上述星期六,土权的领袖依布拉欣阿里再次强调,土权将永远支持纳吉及他的政策,甚至说他敬畏罗斯玛的领导能力。

纳吉拒绝在白包事件或其它任何极端行为中谴责土权,就连马华总会长拿督蔡细历也拒绝禁止马华党员参加土权的活动。纳吉之前还为土权辩护,说一个人如果理解他们,他们的运动其实并不极端。

马来西亚人一次又一次看到土权和依布拉欣阿里在煽动性动作和言论后,却遭国阵政府允许。尽管他曾过说要对基督徒发动圣战、焚烧净选盟2.0主席拿督安美嘉的照片还称之为“危险的印度女人。 ”并警告华人不要参与净选盟2.0的大集会因为“什么事都可能发生”。然而,国阵政府并没有采取任何行动,来节制土权的极端手段。

纳吉在玩着一场土权支持及赞助的危险游戏,同时,他利用“一个马来西亚 ”这个空洞的口号,推广中庸和国民团结。去年5月,依布欣阿里说,首相曾告诉他:“我也是政治人物,但是,马来人已经分裂,因此我必须玩这个游戏。”

当土权说他们会全力支持国阵的政策时,所有珍惜中庸价值的马来西亚人都很担忧。由于对土权给予被动或主动的支持,纳吉、罗斯玛及国阵政府必须要对土权那种极端、煽动性行为及言论负起全责。
