Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak Can Only Prove That UMNO Is Not A Racist Party When UMNO Wipes Out Corruption, Opens Its Membership To All Races, Adopts the 1 Malaysia Slogan And Stop the Campaign Of Hatred And Fear Against Non-Malays.(en/bm/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 12.5.2013.

UMNO President Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak can only prove that UMNO is not a racist party when UMNO wipes out corruption, opens its membership to all races, adopts the 1 Malaysia slogan and stop the campaign of hatred and fear against non-Malays. Datuk Seri Najib has blamed BN’s failure to win more seats and a 2/3 majority in the 2013 General Elections on DAP’s racist policies.

Can Najib show proof what are the DAP policies that are racist? I doubt that Najib can show any proof when DAP upholds the Federal Constitution on the queston of:-
• Islam as the religion of the Federation whilst other religions have freedom to practice their faith,
• Bahasa Malaysia as the official language whilst other mother-tongue languages can be used and promoted, and
• safeguarding the special position of Malays and bumis whilst protecting the legitimate interests of other races in Malaysia under Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.

Najib’s attack on DAP as racist is to hide BN’s failure to wipe out corruption, cronyism and abuse of power as the primary causes as well as to mask the fact that UMNO is now the most racist party in the world. Even the African National Party that advocated apartheid against the majority blacks in South Africa has been disbanded. And yet UMNO continues to proudly articulate racial dominance and that racial dominance justifies UMNO and its non-Malay allies in BN to be corrupt and reject open competitive tenders.

Unlike UMNO, DAP is open to all Malaysians regardless of race, religion and gender. DAP is proud to have not only Malays, Indians and Chinese wakil rakyats but also a Kadazan wakil rakyat from Sabah. Can UMNO boast such a multi-racial representation like the DAP?

Unlike UMNO, DAP fights against corruption and for the rights of all Malaysians. Unlike UMNO, DAP campaigns on ideas, ideals, principles and people-centric policies. How can UMNO be moderate when it preaches fear, hatred and lies? Malaysians are not stupid to believe that UMNO is moderate and clean when its 56 year record in government is full of corruption and abuse of power.

Now, UMNO has no more moderate leaders when its Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz made the astonishing lie that the Chinese voters were misled that the special privileges enjoyed by the Malays and bumiputera as well as Islam as the official religion would be abolished if PR won. Neither DAP, PAS nor PKR had advocated abolishing the special position of Malays or Islam. No mention of this is made in the PR General Election manifesto.

This dangerous lie by Mohamed Nazri to provoke racial tensions, by an UMNO leader seen as different because he was anti-Perkasa, shows that there are now no more moderate UMNO leaders. If Nazri can not show proof, he should withdraw his wild allegations. BN and the police must be held responsible to ensure that there are no untoward incidents by some irresponsible elements to take advantage of the 44th May 13th anniversary tomorrow.

BN Forced To Accept That PR Won In Selangor, Penang and Kelantan When PR Won The Popular Vote.
Najib still refuses to answer why PR won 51% of the popular vote and yet it is BN that won Federal government power. Instead Najib chose to attack PR’s refusal to fully accept the national parliamentary results of the 13th general election (GE13) as the greatest hypocrisy because PR had accepted the results in states of Selangor, Kelantan and Penang won by PR.

Najib misses the point that in all these 3 states, PR won not only the majority of the seats but a majority of the popular vote. PR fought a clean campaign and there were no complaints of cheating against PR. In Kelantan PR won 54%, in Selangor 59% and in Penang 68% of the popular vote. That is the reason why BN was forced to accept that PR won in those 3 states. In contrast, BN won only 47% of the popular vote and yet won 60% of the Parliamentary seats.

Najib must stop blaming the Chinese or the DAP for BN’s failure to win a majority of the popular vote. Instead he must recognise the new paradigm shift of this general elections – that the people are sick and tired of race-based and extremist politics. Instead all Malaysians especially the urban areas have shown a clear preference for people-centric policies that makes a difference to the lives of ordinary Malaysians, decided on needs based and merit.

BN must acknowledge that the power of the people is more powerful than those people in power!

Kenyataan Media oleh Setiausaha Agung DAP merangkap Ahli Parlimen Bagan, Lim Guan Eng di Kuala Lumpur pada 12 Mei 2013.

Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak Hanya Boleh Membuktikan Bahawa UMNO Bukanlah Sebuah Parti Perkauman Apabila UMNO Membersihkan Rasuah, Membuka Keahlian Kepada Semua Kaum, Mengangkat Slogan 1Malaysia Dan Memberhentikan Kempen Membenci Dan Menakutkan Terhadap Orang Bukan Melayu.

Presiden UMNO Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak hanya boleh membuktikan bahawa UMNO bukanlah sebuah parti perkauman apabila UMNO membersihkan rasuah, membuka keahlian kepada semua kaum, mengangkat slogan 1Malaysia dan memberhentikan kempen membenci dan menakutkan terhadap orang bukan Melayu. Datuk Seri Najib telah menyalahkan ‘dasar perkauaman DAP’ kekalahan BN dan kegagalannya untuk memenangi lebih banyak kerusi dan majoriti dua-pertiga dalam PRU ke 13.

Boleh Najib menghadirkan bukti-bukti mengenai dasar-dasar perkauman DAP seperti yang didakwa olehnya? Saya sangsi kalau Najib boleh menunjukkan sebarang bukti sedangkan sebenarnya DAP menjunjung tinggi Perlembagaan Persekutuan dalam hal:
· Islam sebagai agama rasmi Persekutuan manakala agama-agama lain boleh diamalkan dengan aman dan damai,
· Bahasa Malaysia sebagai bahasa rasmi manakala bahasa-bahasa ibunda lain boleh digunakan dan diajarkan, serta
· Mempertahankan kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu dan Bumiputera sambil mempertahankan kepentingan sah kaum-kaum lain di Malaysia di bawah Perkara 153 Perlembagaan Persekutuan.

Serangan Najb terhadap DAP sebagai kononnya perkauman adalah bertujuan untuk menyembunyikan kegagalan BN untuk membersihkan rasuah, kronisme dan salahguna kuasa yang menjadi sebab utama serta menutup hakikat bahawa UMNO sekarang adalah parti paling rasis di dalam dunia. Parti Kebangsaan Afrika (African National Party) yang menyokong tindakan apartheid terhadap majoriti kulit hitam di Afrika Selatan pun sudah dibubarkan. Namun UMNO terus menyebarkan dominasi perkauman dengan bangga, dan dominasi kaum mewajarkan UMNO dan sekutu bukan Melayunya di dalam BN untuk terus korup dan menolak tender terbuka.

Tidak seperti UMNO, DAP terbuka kepada semua rakyat Malaysia tanpa mengira kaum, agama dan gender. DAP bangga kerana bukan sahaja mempunyai Melayu, India dan Cina sebagai wakil rakyat malah mempunyai wakil rakyat Kadazan dari Sabah. Mampukah UMNO bermegah dengan perwakilan berbagai kaum seperti DAP?

Tidak seperti UMNO, DAP menentang rasuah dan berjuang demi hak semua rakyat Malaysia. Tidak seperti UMNO, DAP berkempen atas dasar ide, aspirasi, prinsip, dan dasar mesra rakyat. Bagaimana mungkin UMNO melaksanakan ‘wasatiyyah’ (kesederhanaan) apabila ia mengajarkan ketakutan, kebencian dan penipuan? Rakyat Malaysia bukan bodoh sehingga boleh mempercayai bahawa UMNO ini parti yang sederhana dan bersih apabila rekod 56 tahun dalam kerajaan memperlihatkan banyak rasuah dan salah guna kuasa.

Sekarang UMNO sudah tidak lagi mempunyai pemimpin yang ‘sederhana’ apabila Ahli Majlis Tertinggi UMNO Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz membuat kenyataan mengejutkan bahawa pengundi Cina telah ditipu kononnya hak istimewa orang Melayu dan Bumiputera serta kedudukan Islam sebagai agama rasmi akan dimansuhkan sekiranya Pakatan Rakyat menang kuasa. Tidak pernah sekali pun DAP, PAS dan PKR menyokong supaya kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu dan Islam digugat. Tiada disebut pun perkara ini dalam manifesto pilihanraya Pakatan Rakyat.

Penipuan bahaya Mohamed Nazri yang bertujuan membangkitkan ketegangan antara kaum, datang daripada seorang pemimpin UMNO yang dilihat berbeza kerana beliau anti-Perkasa; lantas memperlihatkan bahawa UMNO kini sudah tidak ada pemimpin moderat. Jika Nazri tidak boleh menghadirkan bukti, beliau sepatutnya menarik balik tuduhan liarnya itu. BN dan pihak polis mesti bertanggungjawab memastikan bahawa tidak ada insiden yang tidak diingini oleh pihak-pihak tidak bertanggungjawab yang mungkin mengambil kesempatan ulangtahun ke 44 peristiwa 13 Mei esok.

BN Terpaksa Menerima Hakikat Bahawa Pakatan Rakyat Menang Di Selangor, Pulau Pinang Dan Kelantan Apabila Pakatan Rakyat Menang Unid Popular.

Najib masih enggan menjawab bagaimana Pakatan Rakyat boleh menang 51% undi popular tetapi BN masih menang kuasa di peringkat pusat. Sebaliknya Najib memilih untuk menyerang keengganan Pakatan Rakyat menerima penuh keputusan PRU ke 13 kononnya suatu hipokrasi besar kerana Pakatan Rakyat menerima keputusan di negeri Selangor, kelantan dan Pulau Pinang yang dimenangi Pakatan Rakyat.

Najib barangkali terlepas pandang bahawa dalam ketiga-tiga negeri ini, Pakatan Rakyat menang bukan sahaja dengan kerusi majoriti malah majoriti undi popular. Pakatan Rakyat telah berjuang dengan kempen yang bersih dan tidak ada pun aduan penipuan terhadap Pakatan Rakyat. Di Kelantan Pakatan Rakyat menang 54%, di Selangor 59% dan di Pulau Pinang 68% undi popular. Itulah sebabnya kenapa BN terpaksa menerima hakikat bahawa Pakatan Rakyat telah menang di ketiga-tiga negeri ini. Sebaliknya, BN hanya menang 47% undi popular namun masih boleh menang 60% kerusi Parlimen.

Najib mesti berhenti menyalahkan orang Cina ataupun DAP di atas kegagalan BN memenangi majoriti undi popular. Sebaliknya beliau mesti mengiktiraf anjakan paradigma baru dalam PRU kali ini – bahawa rakyat sudah muak dan menyampah dengan politik ekstremis dan perkauman. Malahan semua rakyat Malaysia terutamanya di kawasan bandar telah menunjukkan pilihan jelas ke arah polisi mesra rakyat yang memberi perubahan dalam kehidupan masyarakat Malaysia, yang diputuskan berdasarkan keperluan dan merit.

BN mesti mengakui bahawa kuasa rakyat adalah jauh lebih kuat daripada mereka yang berkuasa!

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年5月12日在吉隆坡发表声明:

拿督斯里纳吉如果要证明巫统不是种族主义政党,他就必须肃贪、开放巫统会员给各族人民、实践1个马来西亚口号、并且阻止任何对非马来人仇恨及恐惧的活动。

拿督斯里纳吉如果要证明巫统不是种族主义政党,他就必须肃贪、开放巫统会员给各族人民、实践一个马来西亚口号、并且阻止任何对非马来人仇恨及恐惧的活动。由于国阵在2013年大选中,无法赢得更多议席、以及失去国会三分之二多数议席,纳吉对此将责任归咎于民主行动党的种族性政策。

纳吉能不能拿出证据?行动党哪一项政策是种族性政策?我怀疑纳吉有什么证据,因为行动党捍卫联邦宪法的下列事项:

• 伊斯兰教为联邦宗教,同时其它宗教拥有奉行宗教信仰的自由;
• 马来西亚语为官方语言,同时能够使用及推广其它母语;
• 捍卫马来人及土著的特别地位,同时依据联邦宪法第153条文,保护马来西亚其它种族的合法利益。

纳吉指责行动党是种族主义,是为了隐藏国阵无法扫除贪污、朋党及滥权这些导致他们败北的根本原因,他也想掩饰巫统已经变成世界上最种族主义政党的事实。就连曾经倡议南非种族隔离政策、对付大多数黑人的非洲国民党也已经解散了。而巫统却还继续引以为荣、言之凿凿地说出种族主权,而他们口口声声的种族主权却沦为他们及国阵非马来人成员党贪污腐败、拒绝公开招标的理由。

行动党与巫统不同,行动党对全体马来西亚人开放党藉,不论什么种族、宗教及性别。我们感到光荣,因为我们的代议士不只有马来人、印度人及华人,我们也有沙巴州的卡达山人,巫统能不能吹牛说他们也有多元种族代表?

行动党与巫统不同,行动党反贪、也捍卫全体马来西亚人的权益。行动党与巫统不同,我们为理想、理念、原则及民本政策斗争。巫统怎么能够算中庸?他们只是鼓吹恐惧、仇恨及谎言。马来西亚人不愚笨,他们再也不会相信巫统是中庸及廉洁的,过去56年来,他们的贪污、滥权记录一匹布那么长。

现在巫统已经没有中庸的领袖了,巫统最高理事会成员拿督斯里纳兹里发表惊人的谎言,他说华裔选民被误导,他们以为如果民联胜出,马来人及土著、伊斯兰教为官方宗教的特权都会被废除。无论是行动党、伊斯兰党或公正党,民联从来没有提过废除马来人或伊斯兰教特别地位。我们在民联大选联合政纲中也没有提过上述事项。

莫哈末纳兹里用谎言来引发种族紧张是非常危险的,尤其他看起来是一名反土著权威组织的巫统领袖,如果连他也这么说,证明巫统已经没有中庸领袖。如果纳兹里拿不出证据,他应该撤回他的胡言乱语。国阵和警方也必须确保,那些不负责任的人士,不会在明天五一三44周年纪念日,乘机作乱。

民联赢得多数票的情况下,国阵被迫接受民联在雪州、槟州及吉兰丹取胜执政。

纳吉还是不愿意回答我们的问题,为什么民联获得51%的得票率,却是国阵赢得联邦政府的政权?纳吉不但避而不谈,反而攻击民联不愿意接受第13届大选国会议席的成绩,实在虚伪,因为民联已经接受我们在雪州、吉兰丹及槟城胜出的成绩。

纳吉忽略了一点,在这三个州,民联不只赢得多数议席,民联也赢得多数票。民联的竞选运动是干净的,没有人投诉民联使用欺诈的手段。民联在吉兰丹得票率为54%、雪兰莪州得票率为59%及槟城得票率为68%。这也是为何国阵必须接受民联在这三个州属胜出执政的事实。相反地,国阵只赢得47%得票率,却获得60%的国会议席。

纳吉必须停止针对国阵无法获得多数票怪罪华人或行动党的做法。反之,他必须承认这个选举已经让全民转向新范例,人民已经厌倦种族及极端政治。反之,所有的马来西亚人特别是城区人民已经表达他们倾向以民为本政策,这种绩效及需求为基础的政策才能改变普通马来西亚人的生活。

国阵必须承认,人民的力量比掌控权力的人士更加强而有力!

    If indeed these are true, my question is why are the leaders of UMNO not reported and charged with Sedition?

    Fuelling racial and religious sentiment is a dangerous card to play and UMNO members continue to fan this 2Rs as they did in 1969 much to the demise of many hundreds of people. This dinosaur has no place in modern politics.

    My main concern, however, is who is fuelling this? I would not be surprised it is yet another tactic deep within UMNO to fan racial sentiments to topple their own leaders as they did with Tunku Abdul Rahman, Badawi and perhaps now, Najib. Afterall, this is how UMNO renews its leaders by brutal culling and blaming their leaders for failure to uphold malay supremacy.

    We all know who the puppet master is and what is his intention to move his son to be PM one day. To do this, he is using the classical british ‘divide and conquer’ trick. Unfortunately, this means a very dangerous line for DAP. Have you wondered why no police or FRU presence in the past 3 public gatherings? Well, my take on it is that they are waiting to pounce using the equivalent of Operation Lallang 2. In one fell swoop, the leaders of Pakatan will be incarcerated and made impotent. What a coup de grace.

    I would suggest that instead of holding rallies and wasting time and energy that DAP and its partners rise to the challenge and start real work on the ground. This means gathering as much evidence of polls rigging, vote buying, any and all evidence to be brought before the courts. Continued rallies will stoke sentiment but people are also asking what is being done on the legal front. Further, if there is nothing positive, all the goodwill and energy stoked will dissipate (best case) or spill into massive protests which go out of control – in which case the Opposition will be held accountable. Be careful of this trap.

    There is little time to appeal as the 21 days is coming up.
