8 Cabinet Ministers Must Give Tan Sri Muhyiddin 2 Choices To Either Withdraw His Words Of Hate And Language Of Threats Against Non-Muslims And Non-Malays Or Else The 2 MCA, 2 MIC, One Gerakan, One PBS, One PRS And One SUPP Minister Will Resign From Cabinet In Protest. (en/cn)

Press Statement by DAP Secretary-General and MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng in Kuala Lumpur on 6 July 2014

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has shocked the nation in threats published by UMNO’s mouthpiece Utusan Malaysia that Malaysia could see another bloody May 13 incident if no efforts were made to preserve inter-ethnic harmony, especially when Malays and Muslims continue to be insulted. By blaming the non-Muslims and non-Malays if there is to be death and violence in any future May 13 riots, Muhyiddin is first dehumanizing them should there be any violence on non-Muslim and non-Malays.

Such inflammatory remarks is not only irresponsible but shows that Muhyiddin is only fit to be a role model for right-wing NGOs like Perkasa and Isma as a bigot and extremist but completely unfit and unqualified to be a Deputy Prime Minister for all Malaysians – Malays, Indians, Chinese, Ibans and Kadazans. Muhyiddin has unfortunately built a reputation as a poster boy for Perkasa and Isma when he renounced Prime Minster Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s now discredited propaganda of 1 Malaysia by stressing that he is a Malay first and a Malaysian second.

Muhyiddin has adopted a hostile attitude towards non-Muslim and non-Malays to the extent that one can only arrive at a conclusion that he is not only disrespectful but intolerant of non-Muslims and non-Malays. For the first time in history since May 13, 1969, a Deputy Prime Minister is recklessly blaming non-Malays and non-Muslims for causing ethnic ties to be strained and unhealthy as well as threatening them with May 13 riots and violence.

Many non-Malays told me that Muhyiddin’s violent threats are so repugnant and repulsive that they want to give up, emigrate and leave this country. I responded that we must not surrender to racists and extremists but fight for the country we love to remain moderate, law-abiding and peaceful as envisaged by our first Prime Minister Tuanku Abdul Rahman. Malaysia must be a secular country for all in accordance with our Merdeka Federal Constitution.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin May 13 threats empowers the racial bigots and extremists, makes him responsible not only for any repeat May 13 bloody incidents but also accelerates brain drain and loss of human talent.

Muhyiddin obviously lied because he is unable to show proof where is the provocation by non-Malay or non-Muslim groups against Malays and Muslims? Instead there is repeated provocations from pro Umno NGOs that go unpunished or without any protest from the BN government.
Examples include in February 2014, a group of individuals calling themselves the Majlis Jemaah Islam slaughtered two chickens and offered monetary reward to any individual willing to slap DAP vice-chairperson and MP for Seputih Teresa Kok for RM 1,200. In May 2014, a group of Umno youths gathered before the DAP headquarters and DAP Kuantan offices and threatened to burn it down, but no action was taken against them.

Even though Christians’ rights have been eroded, including use of the word “Allah” has been taken away and their Malay language Bibles seized, Christians have protested peacefully and according to proper legal channels. The Christians are easy targets because they are among the smallest of the minority religious groups. Malaysia has an estimated 30 million people now with Muslims making up 61.3%, Buddhist 19.8%, Christians 9.2%, Hindus 6.3%, Confucianism, Taoism and other traditional Chinese religions 1.3% and others (either no religion, other religions or no information) at 2.1%, according to the 2010 census.

Similarly non-Malays are easy targets because they are a minority with the three major groups is Malays (60.3%), Chinese (22.9%) and Indians (7.1%). The Chinese population of 22.9% has shrunk to half from its peak in 1957 when it was 45%. So where is the threat to Malays and Muslims from non-Muslims and non-Malays? The real threat comes from abuse of power, mediocrity, corruption and cronyism.

MCA, MIC, Sarawak United People’s Party(SUPP), Parti Bersatu Sabah(PBS), Parti Rakyat Sarawak(PRS) and Gerakan must bear full responsibility for Muhyidin taking the racist and extremist route. Their 8 Ministers must give Muhyiddin 2 choices to either withdraw his words of hate and language of threats or else the 2 MCA, 2 MIC, one Gerakan, one PBS, one PRS and one SUPP Minister will resign from Cabinet in protest.

Failure to do so will only means that the 6 BN component parties and their 8 Ministers condone Muhyiddin racist and extremist remarks against non-Muslims that is not only disrespectful of their dignity by intolerant of their rights as citizens of Malaysia.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2014年7月6日在吉隆坡发表声明:

八名内阁部长一定要给丹斯里慕尤丁两项选择,撤回他针对非穆斯林及非马来人的仇恨及威胁性言论,或者两名马华部长、两名国大党部长、一名民政党部长、一名沙巴团结党部长、一名砂拉越人民党部长及一名砂拉越人联党部长将集体辞去内阁部长职,以示抗议。

副首相丹斯里慕尤丁让全国震惊,据巫统喉舌《马来西亚前锋报》报道,他说如果再不努力维持跨种族和谐,特别是让马来人和穆斯林继续被侮辱,马来西亚可能会爆发另一次血腥的513事件。如此把未来若出现513暴动导致的死亡和冲突怪罪在非穆斯林及非马来人身上,意味着任何针对非穆斯林及非马来人的暴力行动,慕尤丁已经首先视为失去人性的做法。

慕尤丁的煽动性言论不只不负责任,也显示慕尤丁的顽固和极端,只适合担任右翼非政府组织如:土权组织、马来西亚穆斯林连线的模范,完全没有资格担任全国人民(包括马来人、印度人、华人、伊班人及卡达山人)的副首相。慕尤丁不幸地将自己塑造成土权组织及马来西亚穆斯林连线的宣传海报,当他首先宣布自己“先是马来人,其次才是马来西亚人”时,已经违背首相纳吉的“一个马来西亚”口号,当然这个口号现在已经完全失去威望。

慕尤丁对非穆斯林及非马来人采取敌视的态度,那种程度已经到达不尊重及不能容忍非穆斯林及非马来人的地步。自从1969年513爆发以来,历史上第一次副首相不顾后果地怪罪非马来人及非穆斯林导致种族关系紧张,还利用513暴乱及暴力来威胁他们。

很多非马来人告诉我慕尤丁的暴力威胁是如此矛盾及使人反感,他们准备放弃、移民及离开这个国家。我回答说我们不能向种族主义及极端主义低头,而是要继续为我们爱的国家奋斗,抱持中庸、守法及和平的态度,正如我国第一任首相东姑阿都拉曼所预见的那样。依据我国独立联邦宪法,马来西亚必须是一个世俗国。

丹斯里慕尤丁的513威胁论间接默许并鼓动种族顽固及极端主义,如果513暴动再次发生,他不只要负上责任,他也必须为人才外流及流失负起责任。
慕尤丁很明显地在说谎,他根本拿不出证据证明非穆斯林或非马来人在哪里煽动过马来人及穆斯林?反之,是亲巫统的非政府组织一直在煽风点火,但是他们可以继续恣意妄为,没有人惩罚他们,国阵政府也不抗议。

例如2014年2月,一组自称“伊斯兰非政府组织联盟”的成员宰杀了两只鸡、并悬赏1200令吉给任何愿意撑掴行动党副主席兼士布爹区国会议员郭素沁的人士。2014年5月,一群巫青团成员聚集在行动党全国总部及关丹办事处,威胁要焚烧它们,至今仍没有人受到对付。

虽然基督徒的权利已经受到侵蚀,包括他们使用“阿拉”的权利被剥夺、马来文版《圣经》也被没收,基督徒也只是和平示威及通过司法途径讨回公道。基督徒很容易成为目标,因为他们是少数宗教团体中最小的群体。根据2010年人口普查,马来西亚有3000万人口中,穆斯林占了61.3%,佛教徒占了19.8%,基督徒9.2%,兴都徒6.3%,孔教徒、道教及其它华人传统宗教占1.3%,其它(无宗教、其它或无资料)占2.1%.

同样地,非马来人很容易成为目标,因为他们是少数族群,三大族群比例为马来人60.3%,华人22.9%及印度人7.1%。华人人口从1957年的45%减少一半至22.9%。所以,非穆斯林及非马来人威胁马来人和穆斯林的道理何在?真正的威胁来自滥权、平庸、贪污及朋党。

八名内阁部长一定要给丹斯里慕尤丁两项选择,撤回他针对非穆斯林及非马来人的仇恨及威胁性言论,或者两名马华部长、两名国大党部长、一名民政党部长、一名沙巴团结党部长、一名砂拉越人民党部长及一名砂拉越人联党部长将集体辞去内阁部长职,以示抗议。

如果他们不这么做,意味着上述六个国阵成员党及他们的八名部长纵容慕尤丁针对非穆斯林的种族主义及极端言论 ,这不只毫不尊重他们的尊严,也无视他们身为马来西亚公民的权利。

林冠英
