Malaysia 2nd Independence – Bersih 4

I have had many personal queries and comments on my global posts of Bersih sent out during this week. Many have quipped why bring politics into what I promote and stand for in my work with empowerment of people.

Bersih 4Bersih, is not just a street March, It is the tipping point for this nation.

Malaysia has weathered a fabulous journey of growth, prosperity and this is not shown just in the physical infrastructure that surrounds the nation today, but more in its people, a tribe (I felt the urge for a social media term), that is well educated; in country and some have settled in various parts of the world. Many had claimed that brain drain on the country loosing such caliber of people in 60’s, 70’s, 80’s & 90’s, to another country, could have been stopped if ……. (The reasons are numerous – not for this blog).

A tribe with a special type of Comradeship, a twig in its flavor, of how it deals and interacts with people…. That innate flavor (a special blend of the east and the west) is rarely found elsewhere, in the colonized world, Lah! This is one part of what the people are fighting for today, in particular freedom.

The other outcomes expected are:Bersih 4 street rally

• Free & fair elections,
• Transparent government,
• Strengthen the parliamentary system,
• Save the national economy,
• Right to Dissent.

Leaving all of this aside, the last thing we do not want to see is where our parents, migrants from India, China and other parts of the world came to this country with the HOPE of providing something better for their children. They toiled hard and contributed to where we are today and where the nation was in the lime light days. We cannot had over to our children (even if they are living abroad – the homing instinct for Malaysia is there amongst them) a broken nation. Bersih is the unified force to create that change……

Bersih 4 flagMalaysia it’s time for a CHANGE…

It’s time for our 2nd Independence.

I would like to share the views of the former president of the Bar Association in Malaysia and Co – Chairperson of Bersih…. Ambiga Sreenevasan.

Unfortunately the Malaysian Government, yesterday has banned a number of website, in it’s bid to curtail freedom of speech…. This was one site that was targeted by the government. there are other ways to circumvent the hurdle….

Genocide of Rohingya

Genocide – a treat to the Rohingya race, a minority group within the Burmese community …. Rejected from all its neighboring countries, in an unseemly regional Ariel Ping Pong game. Burma Refugee

Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of the Burmese opposition is SILENT on this matter.

Other Regional governments of Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Thailand. Malaysia have commented publicly they should not carry the burden of housing the Rohingya on their own.is not theirs to shoulder alone.

As commented by the Malaysian Deputy Home Minister Wan Junaidi Jaafar, “We cannot welcome them here,” when asked why by CNN his response was simple to the point “If we continue to welcome them, then hundreds of thousands will come from [Burma] and Bangladesh.”

Malaysia, a second tier, young, third world country – thirty year old….. Still needs to understand the basic human element of compassion, treatment of others with dignity…. I suppose if one does not have these traits (and their own bank account for these traits are empty) one would find it had to provide or even display it…. Its is bascis such as these that consolidates and strengthens a nation…. Unfortunately, only a few understand such concept. That is what puts first tier countries like US, Australia, some of the north European nations apart in its approach to treatment of its citizens and the eye to care for the displaced….

Burma Refugee Plight-of-the-Rohingya-People-Image-4A truly worthwhile understanding for the up and coming youth leaders to catch on to for the scale up of their developing nations…..
When one looks at it from the basic plight (need) of an individual, the lotus will bloom…Lots of learning for many…. On both sides of the court….. Those who house the refugees, and those who reject the refugees.

 

God Bless. David Nair
