A University Student Forced to Pay RM50: Saya Anti Rasuah or Saya Nanti Rasuah?

A student from Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNITAR) Kelana Jaya Campus force to pay RM50 for the traffic offense that they have done. They traffic police officer force him to pay RM50 instead of issuing summonses. Although the University student admit his offense and wanted a summon notice than giving bribe to the officer, the officer rejected his request and continuously forced him to pay RM50.

The whole incident happened yesterday evening, when the student did not wear helmet and rode motorcycle. A policeman caught the student and straight away asks for RM50. When the student refuse to pay, the officer said he wanted the sum of money then only he will let the student go from the place. The police declined to receive it directly through the hand, so he had ordered the student to put the money at the back box of the officer’s motor.

And at the same time, the student brilliantly captured few pictures for evidence to lodge report later on, the pictures taken when the police ask over money for him. The most shameful part of the incident was when the students warned the policeman that he will lodge an official report to police on what had happened, the officer decided to return his money back.

This is the shameful attitude of the most Malaysian police officers. If this trend continues, we are going to live in a failed nation of course. Destroy the corruption before it destroys your nation! The student did a very good job as a responsible citizen. Although he had done traffic offense he did not wanted to escape from legal punishment and daringly face the law.

Compare the student to the officer that wearing the badge ‘Saya Anti Rasuah’ and ‘INTEGRITI AMALAN KITA’. Tell me who is the real responsible citizen?

One People, One Nation… Possible?

Of course it is possible to have one people, one nation. Why is it that after more than 5 decades of nationhood, we are not one people, one nation? Well, we have the politicians to thank for that. They made sure that there would not be a united Malaysian nation sharing a common destiny with a single system and policy for all.

By purposeful design they keep us apart, desegregated through policies that cause anger and hate. They discriminated along racial and religious line. The reward a group of people and deprive another group, by this kind of selective policies and unfair implementations, they have divided us for their own political survival.

Sadly, these politicians who fan the flames of polarization for their personal benefits, they want to seen as champions for their community. They have constantly portrayed certain issue as being under threat and project themselves as standing for those rights. These short-term and shortsighted politicians are the serious obstacle to our unity.

Let me tell you that they will proclaim that others are out to grab their economic share of the cake. He will kiss the keris, while some stupid people like me demand to know why the keris used. He won’t be warned for the racial slurs but he will stand out as the hero of his community.

But when people come together on common issues that unite them irrespective of their ethnicity such as fuel hike protests, toll hike protests, BERSIH rally, Reformasi rallies and so on. The gatherings will be brutally dispersed. Truncheons used to beat up peaceful people and chemically laced water used to disperse the crowd that also had women and children in between the crowd.

What you say? They will not allow unity to be forged on common reasons, because this will be seen as a threat to their power and position. One people, one nation goal is possible only if our politicians willing to change their mindset.

Mat Rempits a.k.a Mat Beruks


Mat Rempit is a Malaysian term for 'an individual who participates in illegal street racing', usually involving underbone motorcycles (colloquially known as Kapcai) or scooters. Not all Mat Rempits are involved in street racing; some of them perform crazy stunts for fun, such as the wheelie, superman (lying flat on the seat), wikang, and scorpion (standing on the seat with one leg during a wheelie).

Additionally, some Mat Rempits do not have valid motorcycle licenses, do not pay road taxes, and ride stolen motorcycles. A growing number of housing estates have also been turned into racing tracks. It is estimated that there are about 200,000 Mat Rempits in Malaysia. Initially Mat Rempit community only has Malays as their members, but now Malaysian Chinese and Malaysian Indian youngsters also involving in this sickening culture.

The controversy that created a stir among Malaysians was the unsuccessful attempt by Khairy Kamaluddin and Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim to rebrand "Mat Rempits" as "Mat Cemerlang" during the campaign of the march 8 General Election. "Mat Rempit" is a derogatory term used to refer to youths who aim to win drugs, prostitutes and cash in illegal racings using illegally-modified motorcycles. Mat Rempits involve in all criminal activities, do you think UMNO politicians can rebrand them to ‘Mat Cemerlang”?

Some analysts believe that UMNO Youth is cashing on the large numbers of "Mat Rempits" in Malaysia as preparation for the elections. The suggestion by Khairy that "Mat Rempits" should become the "Eyes and Ears" for the Malaysian Police Force has sparked anger among former victims of "Mat Rempits", who previously had their vehicles smashed by "Mat Rempits".

Khairy even organized a Mat Rempit gathering in Kuala Lumpur and thousands of "Mat Rempits" attended it. It's a pity for Malaysians for having this young beruk sibling as their UMNO deputy youth leader (former now youth leader). He should be sent to the jungle along with the "Mat Rempits" where they can have a peaceful life with their ancestors, the monkeys.

If UMNO politicians continuously ignoring the mounting culture of Mat Rempits, definitely our future generations going to live in a failed nation. In recent times, Mat Rempits have been linked to gangsterism, gang robbery, street fighting, assault, vandalism, theft and bullying. The public are worrying of the safety of their life and property at all times just because of these stupid Mat Rempits.

Some of our politicians are awarding them instead of put them behind the bar. After this, I suggest all Malaysian to call Mat Rempit as Mat Beruk instead of calling them Mat Cemerlang.

Thanenthiran is Making a Brainless Move, No Way for Racial Politics...


While Malaysia is moving forward with wonderful and ideal political arena, there are some people who still stand with their racial politics ideology. It’s a dumb move indeed to polarize Malaysian into their ethnicity. Since Thanenthiran expelled from the HINDRAF organization last month by chairman Waythamoorthy, he decided to form a new ethnic Indian based political party. Read here- Breakaway Hindraf group forms new party

I hope Malaysian Indian will not moving backward by supporting this Thanenthiran’s dumb move. Last year, in the 12th General Election, Malaysians defied common stereotypes in casting their votes. Malays voted for the Democratic Action Party (DAP); non-Malays, voted for PAS. Parti Keadilan Rakyat, long upheld as yet another in a long-line of Malay-inclusive multiracial parties that were sure to fail, became the second-largest party in Parliament. Many commentators trumpeted the beginning of the end for racial politics in Malaysia. It was clear from the results of the last general election that voters did not like racial politics.


Even the biggest Malaysian Islamic based party like PAS are now very open with their struggle for the multi-ethnic and multi-religion society. They are planning to open up memberships to the Non-Muslim community, which consist around 40% of the nation’s population. From the move, we know racial politics are irrelevant for the future Malaysia.

So what’s wrong with Thanenthiran? Is he thinking that Malaysian Indians are going to support a groundless struggle? Thanenthiran is misusing the religion and racial issues and sentiments into politics to gain support. The racial politics should have been abolished and only multiracial party politics allowed to work on in local politics arena. It’s important to stay on track in order to unite the Malaysian under one umbrella.

Its nothing wrong to say that Thanenthiran is the agent of MIC that trying to spoil the noble struggle of HINDRAF to the betterment of Malaysian Indian community. There will be no supports for his new party named as Malaysian Makkal Sakthi Party (MMSP). Shame of him, he got no own idea, he steal the HINDRAF’s ideology. But it’s nothing new for Malaysian Indian, they are tired of seeing this kind of parties that formed with full of empty promises that yet to be fulfilled. Let me tell you that MIC, PPP, IPF, MIUP already cheats and now MMSP is wearing a new mask to fool the Malaysian Indian.

As a HINDRAF loyalist, I have been jailed more than two weeks at the age of 19 during 25 November 2007 rally. I'm understand the struggle of HINDRAF. I think HINDRAF movement must remain as a Non-Government Organization (NGO), must not involve into politics directly. For now, may be HINDRAF’s role significant, but for future HINDRAF’s struggle not relevant since we are moving towards a Malaysia for all Malaysian concept.
