Most famous slogan of the year 2009: '1Malaysia' vs 'PAS for all'

While PM Najib is paying up ‘1Malaysia’ lip services as usual in uniting all Malaysians, PAS with their own ‘PAS for all’ slogan wooing non Muslims to back them. Both parties have their respective approaches in order to promote their slogan.

1Malaysia by PM Najib
1Malaysia is an on-going campaign announced by PM Najib on September 16, 2008. He calls for the cabinet, government agencies, and civil servants to more strongly emphasize ethnic harmony, national unity, and efficient governance. After more than one year on, it seems like ‘word speaks louder than action’.

The people does not know what is the true meaning of 1Malaysia whereas PM still maintaining his ‘racial formula’ in managing our nation. The dividing policy of all Malaysians into Bumiputera and non-Bumiputera verse, depressions against the minorities and corrupted administration denying his efforts to build up 1Malaysia.

'PAS for all' by PAS
While PM emphasizing on 1Malaysia concept, PAS is championing ‘PAS for all’ concept to attract the non-Muslims to support them. One of the evidence that PAS succeeded to create the confidence on non-Muslims when large number of Non Muslims voted for them in the past General Election.

Beside that, PAS strongly oppose the ‘Bumiputera’ policy that was introduced by UMNO. This emerges PAS as fair to all among the Non Muslims. The fair and equal leaderships in Kelantan, Kedah and formerly in Perak which led by PAS MBs also show that the party is really struggling for all.

Should learn from each other
1Malaysia sounds superb but sadly PM has nothing to impress the people. In fact, 1Malaysia is a wonderful ideology but disappointingly no proper implementations to endorse it. Hope PM Najib learns from PAS on how to lead all Malaysians fairly and equally regardless of race and religion.

BYE BYE 2009!

PAS can call its campaign by whichever name. But we know smarter, and we’d say, “let’s just give it a pass.”

The 1Malaysia concept is good in content but the rights and the needs of ordinary people could not be merely met by slogans and rhetorics. It needs perpective on economy and social that could challege the profit oriented system that only enlarging the wealth of the minority, the capitalists. PAS is also using religion to propagate its politics. The have no any perspective to uplifting the economy and social needs of ordinary people. In fact the religious politics is merely dividing the ordinary people according to religion. Politics based on religion or race could not solve the needs and rights of ordinary people. It needs class approach that will unite the ordinary people regardless of race and religion.
