There’s no Malaysia as originally envisaged.
By Joe Fernandez
Judging from his front page statement in the local media today, former Sabah Chief Minister Harris Mohd Salleh, like other apologists for Malaya and Putrajaya, continues to live in a state of extreme denial on the plight of Sabah (Sarawak too) since 16 Sept, 1963 when it was robbed of its sovereignty of 31 Aug, 1963. Hardly sixteen days after it obtained independence, Sabah and Sarawak were rushed into the Malayan Federation by the British colonialists in cahoots with Malaya while the UN looked the other way. Even the Conference of Malaya Rulers and the States in Malaya were not consulted.
What more proof does Harris want of Malaya and Putrajaya being in colonial occupation of Sabah and Sarawak when the proof is all around us in the Master–Slave relationship, the sick ideology of ketuanan Melayu, and the slave mentality and dependency syndrome foisted on us.
What better proof of colonialism can there be when Sabah and Sarawak are the poorest in Malaysia and will definitely be much better off on their own? The World Bank, using Government figures from Putrajaya, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, announced in Kota Kinabalu in Dec 2010 that Sabah and Sarawak are the poorest states in Malaysia. Forty per cent of the poor in Malaysia, according to the World Bank, were in Sabah.
The fact that Sabah and Sarawak are not being allowed to declare that they are not in Malaysia because it does not exist — see Article 160 in the Federal Constitution which defines Federation as Malaya under the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1957 — and that they were not allowed to exit the Federation with Malaya along with Singapore in 1965 is “further proof” of colonization which began in 1963 with the departure of the British and the marching in of Malayan troops which remain to this day as the Occupation continues with no end in sight. Malaya has never observed Malaysia Day, 16 Sept, even once in the last 50 years because they know it marks Occupation Day.
Wither the Malaysia Agreement 1963 in Article 160!
There’s no indication in the Federal Constitution that the name Malaya was changed to Malaysia.
The Malayan Government has become the Malaysian Government and we have no share of it. The Malayan flag and national anthems have become Malaysian. The Malayan King is the Malaysian King.
Malaya has stolen our seats in Parliament and Malayan parties are stealing even more seats in Borneo.
No Sabahan or Sarawakian will ever become Prime Minister or even Deputy Prime Minister under Ketuanan Melayuism.
There’s no Malaysia as originally envisaged.
Article 160 of the Federal Constitution makes that clear.
Sabah and Sarawak were dragged into the Federation on Malaya as the 12th and 13th states to facilitate the merger of Singapore and Malaya.
The Federation of Malaya is masquerading as the Federation of Malaysia and the Constitution of Malaya is being passed off as the Constitution of Malaysia.
The words “masquerading” and “passing off” — Malaya as Malaysia and the Malayan Constitution as the Malaysian Constitution — have entered the debate along with “theft” of oil and gas resources and the demand for “punitive compensation”.
The facts speak for themselves.
No more Malayan lies in history books to cover up the truth.
Malaya should shed the burden of Empire in Borneo.
The British told Sabahans and Sarawakians that Malaysia will be an equal partnership. They told the UN that Sabah and Sarawak will be joining the existing Federation of Malaya and that there was no need for Referendum.
Harris has also been claiming at every opportunity that the 20 Points — a constitutional document on Malaysia — are no longer relevant.
If there had been a Referendum on Malaysia, the 20/18 Points along with the Malaysia Agreement would have provided the two additional basis for Sabah and Sarawak to be in Malaysia.
What’s the basis for Sabah and Sarawak to be in Federation with Malaya if there’s also non-compliance on the Malaysia Agreement and the 20/18 Points? Recently declassified colonial documents in London reveal that the British were convinced that Malaya would colonize Sabah and Sarawak after they left.
Sabah has not only been colonized by Malaya as there was no Referendum on Malaysia in 1963, and Putrajaya keeps screaming ketuanan Melayu, the people are being marginalized and disenfranchised especially through the illegal immigrants entering the electoral rolls. In rooting for the Filipino and Indonesian illegal immigrants, Mahathir Mohamad from Kerala doesn’t seem to care that Sabah belongs to the Orang Asal and other Sabahans.
To add insult to injury, Putrajaya’s proxies, stooges and rogue elements are pushing for ethnic cleansing and cultural genocide by shrieking hysterically that Muslim Natives still refuse to identify themselves as Malays in line with the colonialist ketuanan Melayu policy.
The revenue non-sharing picture, besides the grinding poverty and theft of the oil and gas resources also tell the story of colonization.
The Sabah and Sarawak Governments are helpless. The political structure in Sabah and Sarawak is a colonialist one dominated by co-opted local traitors made up of proxies, stooges and rogue elements — read handing out MyKads to illegal immigrants — of Malaya.
Harris blames poor leadership in Kota Kinabalu and Kuching without realizing that in pointing a finger at them, he’s pointing four fingers at himself. Puterajaya cannot use their local proxies, stooges and rogue elements to do a number on the people of Sabah and Sarawak and go on to justify their imperialist and colonialist actions in Borneo as sanctioned by Parliament and law.
We can’t even breathe in Borneo without Putrajaya’s permission.
Look at where Singapore are Brunei are today!
Singapore was kicked out of its merger with Malaya in 1965 and today has an economy, in GDP terms, which is almost as large as that of Malaysia. Singapore’s runaway success since 1965 merely reflects the failure of Malaysia especially in Borneo.
Brunei is in control of its considerable oil and gas reserves unlike Sabah and Sarawak whose resources are being stolen by Petronas in cahoots with Putrajaya since 1976 in defiance of the Federal Constitution and based on a one-sided Oil Agreement which is worse than useless in international law. The onus is on Malaya to disprove theft, failing which the issue of punitive compensation enters the picture.
Harris must apologize to Sabahans for signing the Oil Agreement and giving away Labuan free to Putrajaya.he did not consult them on both issues.
We are not saying that he should have sold Labuan for money.
We are saying that he should not have given away Labuan to Malaya and had no business, law or no law, in doing so. He will lose in the Court of Public Opinion.
