'Gov't trying to destroy vernacular languages'

The federal government has been accused of trying to eliminate the growth of vernacular languages in the country with its latest 'magical' 10-subject formula for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM).

Penang Deputy Chief Minister 2 P Ramasamy said by limiting SPM students to only 10 subjects, the Education Ministry had effectively unveiled a grand plan to purge Tamil and Mandarin as vernacular languages not only in the education system, but also in the country.

kampung buah pala penang p ramasamy meeting 120609 04He said the students should be allowed to take up at least 12 subjects to enable them to sit for their respective vernacular language and literature subjects.

He pointed out that the 10-subject grand plan would first discourage students from taking up their mother tongue subjects at secondary and tertiary levels, which ultimately would create a severe shortage of teachers in vernacular schools.

He said if this was allowed, all 534 existing Tamil schools would eventually close down.

"Without Tamil schools and teachers, one can imagine what will happen to the language.

"This is a deliberate attempt by the 1Malaysia federal government to destroy the usage and growth of vernacular languages in the country," he told a press conference in George Town today.

NGOs to stage protest

More than 20 national Indian non-government organisations (NGOs) have already planned to stage a protest on Dec 12 at the Wisma Peladang in Petaling Jaya against the ministry's attempt to introduce the 10-subject SPM formula.

The joint NGO group organising chairperson A Thiruvenggadam said because of the restrictive ruling, Indian students whose mother tongue is Tamil would not be able to sit for subjects in their language.

The NGOs to take part in the protest include the Malaysia Hindu Sangam, Malaysia Tamil Literature Association, Malaysian Dravidian Association and Hindu Dharma Maha Madhuram.

In mid-June this year, Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said all students would be able to take a maximum of only 10 subjects in the examination.

Muhyiddin, who is also education minister, said the six core subjects in the SPM - Bahasa Melayu, English, Islamic Education or Moral Studies, History, Mathematics and Science - would remain the same.

The only exception would be students in the joint science and religious stream who will be allowed to take 11 subjects next year until the curriculum is streamlined by 2011, after which they too would take a maximum of 10 subjects.

"The Indian community is up-in-arms against the controversial plan because it poses a major threat to the very existence of Tamil language in the country," said Ramasamy.

He also dismissed suggestions that the 10-subject formula was mooted to reduce students' burden, pointing out that many students were already taking up 13 subjects now.

He said he would table an emergency motion at the current parliamentary session to pass a resolution against the introduction of the 10-subject formula.

The deputy chief minister said he might also do the same at this week's Penang assembly sitting, which starts tomorrow.

"The state Pakatan Rakyat government is against the 10-subject magic formula. I don't know who came up with such an uncanny idea but surely it's malicious.

"Even an 11-subject formula would be suicidal for the growth of Tamil language in the country," he said.

Bank Negara probes Negeri MB's RM10 mil fund transfer


Gem: Punish the money changer, and end of story? What about the person who used that money changer? What was that remittance of so much money for?

Louis: In the end, there'll be no case. Read my lips: No case. When former Selangor menteri besar Muhammad Muhammad Taib was caught with a bagful of cash in Australia, what action was taken? Remember the currency controls then, when we could not even send 10,000 Australian dollars overseas without permission.

Hardtail: Shouldn't someone be probing Bank Negara? How many of these transfers by our politicians have gone through under Bank Negara's radar? Why only take action when alerted by the opposition? The rakyat's money is being sucked out by these people.

Wisdom4: If it is true the Negri Sembilan menteri besar was involved in such transactions, Bank Negara Malaysia and the MACC should spring into action. Haul up the MB for further questioning. The said transaction contravenes the foreign exchange regulations of the country. The MB should appear in court to face charges.

'BTN promotes unity? My foot'

No brainwashing in BTN courses, says Muhyiddin
Ministers defend 'racist' BTN courses

Gblk7277: I have attended this BTN course. Yes, it is a brainwashing session where they were telling us that the other races must get a lesser amount of 'durian' because we are the 'pendatang' and we had agreed to accept a lesser amount.

Therefore we could not question anything, just shut up and eat the 'durian' you get or go back to China or India. It's very much politically biased and they were showing recordings of the Bersih and Hindraf rallies saying chaos will take place if we don't support BN.

And that our country will be destroyed. 'Learning about 1Malaysia, about nationalism and unity'? My foot.

Camverra Jose Maliamauv: In the year 2000, during my first year at Universiti Teknologi Petronas, I was one of those selected to attend the Kem Bina Negara. We were sent to an army camp in Kedah.

Out of all the lectures and physical activities etc, I will always remember two main things. The first was a lecture and discussion during which the instructor concluded at the end that non- Malays should not question the special rights and privileges of the Malays and that we should just work harder to move up.

And secondly, during another lecture, one of the 'threats to national security' that were highlighted was 'parti politik baru' (a coincidence that this was the year after 1999?).

Jawahar Hassan: Everybody who attend BTN camps knew the exact nature of the BTN courses during which you are required to surrender all the handphones and recording devices to the person in charge. What's the reason behind this? Why such a rule? Is there anything to hide?

SameSame: Well, well, now our deputy prime minister is lying! Can he proof what he is saying is correct? You know what amazes me is that they still think we are like them - so gullible and stupid.

Well, our unwanted DPM, its obvious we are not stupid and we are not gullible. It's better you keep quiet instead of shooting yourself in your own foot (BN people love doing that it seems). '1Malaysia', my foot.

Chee Hoe Siew: Firstly, is there a law stating that civil servants and other public sector staff must attend these BTN camps? If not, then there is no need to even attend such propaganda camps.

Eagle: Publish the contents of the BTN course and let us decide whether it is a racial hatred and incitement programme. And stop telling us what is good for us, the rakyat. We can decide for ourselves and we can also decide on your future too when the time comes.

Lusiapa: Will past participants of such BTN courses step forward and give their testimony without fear or favour?

Is the Selangor education, higher education and human capital development committee chairperson giving an honest assessment of the situation or is the DPM denying something which is unbelievably true?

Obviously, one of them is not telling the truth. It is time that the liar be publicly exposed and condemned.

Giri: My blood is boiling. God, how can they lie like this?

Tkc: Mr Deputy PM, instead of 'he say, I say', I suggest you publish the text of the BTN courses on the Internet so that we can judge for ourselves. Oh, and please do not tell us it is classified under the OSA.

Make a stand on conversions, Shahrizat told

Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil was asked to clarify if it was government policy to convert young children, especially minors, into Islam while being under the care of government welfare homes.

NONEPKR Kedah deputy youth chief Gooi Hsiao Leung said Shahrizat's clarification was imperative following a controversial statement by Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Mashitah Ibrahim, who praised such conversions.

"Mashitah's statement is scandalous and reckless. Shahrizat should take an immediate stand on it," said Gooi.

He also wants Shahrizat to clarify whether Mashitah's remarks were made in her personal capacity or from her official position in the Putrajaya administration.

Gooi, a practicing lawyer, is the legal counsel for S Banggarma, 27, who had claimed she was converted by Islamic authorities at the age of seven.

She alleged the conversion took place on Dec 28, 1989 while she was residing in a welfare home - Rumah Kanak Kanak Taman Bakti, Kepala Batas.

Banggarma wants Islamic authorities to nullify her conversion on the grounds of illegal conversion of minor without parental approval.

It is also to enable her to restore her rightful Hindu identity so that she can move on with her life.

The welfare department, however, claimed that Banggarma together with her other siblings were converted at the age of one by her natural Hindu parents.

'Shocking statement by a deputy minister'

Gooi has demanded the welfare department director-general Meme Zainal Rashid to furnish his client documented evidence to substantiate her claim that Banggarma was converted on Nov 30, 1983 in Rompin, Pahang.

NONEMashitah was quoted as saying it was commendable for the orphanage to take the initiative to preach about Islam and convert Banggarma to Islam and it was also its responsibility to teach her about the religion.

"It is shocking that a deputy minister had condoned conversion of young children living under the care of government run welfare homes," said Gooi.

"Welfare homes' primary functions are to provide care and protection to helpless abandoned children or where parents are unable to care for them until they turn 18.

"It would be entirely outside the scope of their duties and a blatant abuse of their powers to convert young children's religions, whether it is to Islam or to any other religion for that matter," added Gooi.

He said Mashitah's statement was also inconsistent with the remarks made by the Muslim Welfare Organisation of Malaysia's secretary general Abdul Hamid Othman.

Abdul Hamid said it was inappropriate to convert a child before he or she reached 18, although the welfare homes can educate the children about the Islamic religion.

Gooi said as the minister in charge of women, family and community affairs, Shahrizat has a duty to explain the government's religious policy to all Malaysians.

"It is of utmost public importance for Shahrizat to immediately clarify the government's position," he said

S'gor says no to 'racist, indoctrinating' BTN services

The Selangor government today announced that its civil servants, students in state-owned higher learning institutions and employees in state subsidiaries will be barred from attending nation-building programmes carried out by Biro Tatanegara.

The programmes were described as tools of indoctrination, peppered with racist ideas.

State exco in charge of education and higher education Dr Halimah Ali said the new policy would be implemented with immediate effect after the state government issues formal instructions to the institutions involved.

She told reporters in Shah Alam that the decision was made based on feedback from participants.

"The participants told us that BTN is used as a tool by the Barisan Nasional government to indoctrinate the youth," she said, adding that the 'racism' espoused would divide the people.

Among the institutions involved are Universiti Industri Selangor (Unisel), Kolej Universiti Antarabangsa Selangor (Kuis), Inpens International College, Institut Kemahiran Yayasan Negeri Selangor.

'Hate the oppositions' booklets

Speaking of her own experience, Halimah (below) said one of her children, who had attended such a programme, was given a booklet that contained information "to hate the oppositions".

"So the state government has decided to stop this programme completely because it does not provide anything positive to young minds.

"Instead of wasting people's money on this, it is better for the state government to give opportunities to students and civil servants by providing courses that contribute to unity and harmony in Selangor," she added.

Last week, Selangor Pakatan Rakyat's youth leaders urged the state government to stop sending students for the BTN programmes.

According to PKR state assemblyperson Amiruddin Shari, nation-building programmes organised by the PM's department had become tools to spread "Umno/BN political ideology and racial politics".

"From the feedback we received from participants, they were indoctrinated in Malay supremacy propaganda and outside influences," he said.

M'sia suffers major blow in corruption index

Malaysia suffered a major blow in terms of combating corruption today when it fell to its worst ranking and score in 15 years in Transparency International's corruption perception index for 2009.

In the ranking which was revealed today Malaysia plunged nine places from last year's 47th CPI ranking to 56th position.

At the same time, Malaysia's CPI index score plunged to the lowest in 15 years to 4.5. It previous worst scores below 5 were 4.8 in 2000 and 4.9 in 2002.

Malaysia has been continuously sliding down in the TI index since it best ever placing of 33 in 2002.

azlanIn 2003, when Abdullah Ahmad Badawi took office, Malaysia was ranked 37. It dropped to 39 in 2005 and 43 in 2007. Last year it was ranked 48. [see chart]

DAP parliamentarian leader Lim Kit Siang, in an immediate reaction, said while he had expected a poor result, he did not anticipate such a grave fall.

"This is a national shame and major blow for Najib's premiership," he said.

"I have no doubt that the mysterious death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock on July 16 and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's role as Umno's catspaw to declare war on Pakatan Rakyat instead of declaring war on corruption were major factors for Malaysia's worst-ever TI CPI ranking and score," he said.

He questioned if Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak will react to the embarrassing fall suffered by Malaysia.

The Berlin-based Transparency International is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption.

TI-M backs Najib's initiatives

Meanwhile Transparency International Malaysia (T-IM) has acknowledged Malaysia's efforts to deal with corruption although the country's ranking on the corruption perception index (CPI) this year has declined.

ti global corruption report 230909 paul lowTI-M president Paul Low said Najib's moves to initiate reforms in some institutions, especially the judiciary, and the setting up of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, to make them more independent, transparent and accountable, was the way forward for the country.

He said this at a press conference to announce Malaysia's position in the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index 2009.

He said Transparency International Malaysia believed that the way forward for the country was to seriously combat corruption and to make government decisions and transactions more visible and transparent.

Low, however, suggested that the government should be more transparent in its procurement process by implementing "integrity agreement" with vendors to act as preventive measures to curb corruption.

He also said that Malaysia's decline in ranking in CPI 2009 of 0.6, from 5.1 in 2008 to 4.5 this year, "may be attributed to the perception of little progress in combating corruption, and lack of political will in implementing effective anti-corruption measures".

Examples giving rise to the concern were the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) fiasco and the auditor-general's annual report highlighting extraordinary public procurement abuses, he said.

"However, there are positive signs. The PKFZ fiasco is being actively and vigorously investigated, police reports have been made and suits have been taken against certain parties, and corrective measures have been taken.

Singapore on the top tier

In announcing its latest CPI in Berlin today, TI said that no region of the world was immune to the perils of corruption.

"At a time when massive stimulus packages, fast-track disbursements of public funds and attempts to secure peace are being implemented around the world, it is essential to identify where corruption blocks good governance and accountability, in order to break its corrosive cycle" said Transparency International chairperson Huguette Labelle in a statement.

He added that most of the 180 countries included in the 2009 index scored below five on a scale from 0 (perceived to be highly corrupt) to 10 (perceived to have low levels of corruption) - Malaysia scored 4.5.

He also said that the CPI measured the perceived levels of public sector corruption in a given country and was a composite index, drawing on 13 different expert and business surveys.

The 2009 edition scored 180 countries, the same number as the 2008 CPI.

The 2009 had placed states that were scarred by war and ongoing conflict at the bottom of the index. These were Somalia, with a score of 1.1, Afghanistan at 1.3, Myanmar at 1.4 and Sudan tied with Iraq at 1.5.

Highest scorers in the 2009 CPI were New Zealand at 9.4, Denmark at 9.3, Singapore and Sweden tied at 9.2 and Switzerland at 9.0.

"These scores reflect political stability, long-established conflict of interest regulations and solid, functioning public institutions," said Labelle.

He added that overall results in the 2009 index were of great concern because corruption continued to lurk where opacity ruled, where institutions still needed strengthening and where governments had not implemented anti-corruption legal frameworks.

BN to accept court decision but will appeal

'This is like what was done in Perak. First, the courts will say this and then upon appeal, they will overrule the previous decision. Mark my words, the next decision will be for BN/Umno.'


BN to accept court decision but will appeal

Tan Teng Wah: BN simply has to accept the court's decision. Is there any need for the PM to state the obvious? To appeal is, of course, their right. But the worrying part is the extreme likelihood of the judicial process being wrecked/hijacked like what happened following BN's seizure of power in Perak. Keep your figures crossed.

Selian: This is just play-acting, like what was done in Perak. First, the court will say this and then upon appeal, they will overrule the previous decision. Mark my words, the next decision will be for BN.

Louis: He, the PM, knows he's a sure winner when the case goes to the higher courts. Looks like the lower court judges are more well-versed in the law. Just look at what happened to ousted Perak Menteri Besar Mohd Nizar Jamaludin's case.

Chankweechye: To appeal against any court decision means you do not agree with or accept the findings of that court. Period. Don't give us idiotic explanations.

Paul Warren: 'If we can appeal, we will appeal' But isn't this a case against the Election Commission? What is BN responding for? Or for that matter, why is the prime minister responding? Isn't the EC supposed to be independent?

Perak Boleh: Why is Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak suddenly so civil? If you, Najib, are dead serious on respecting the court's decision, please instruct the good-for-nothing Abu Hasan and the EC not to appeal, and have another by-election.

On the matter of brain drain, there's no big surprise there - with Umno still practicing cronyism and racial polarisation policies, why should foreign talent come to Malaysia and why should local talent stay?

As disheartening as it may be, the rakyat easily forgive in exchange for promises of wealth and prosperity. At the end of the day, the people will vote for the government they think will benefit their lifestyle the best.

Pakatan Rakyat has not been doing too well in that area and highlighting BN's shortcomings alone is insufficient. Pakatan should take heed of this assessment and reform quickly lest the prediction, albeit horrid, come true.

Ken Kanna: Hold the general election tomorrow or three years from now, but never in my life will I vote for BN. Never ever. They can give me or my family 'instant maggie mee' or try to buy me with billions of ringgit but I'm a 35-year-old married man who believes in certain principles.

MACC: Jayanthi not the key witness

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz today said that lawyer VK Lingam's former secretary Jayanthi LG Naidu was not the key witness which the MACC was looking for to conclude the probe against the lawyer.

"It is not her. They are looking for someone else," he said without revealing the identity of the mystery witness.

In a separate statement, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission confirmed that Jayanthi was not the witness which it was looking for.

The commission said that the decision to classify the matter as 'no further action' was made only after Jayanthi's statement had been recorded.

Nazri had previously said that the MACC had 'closed' the case as it could not locate a key witness in the probe against Lingam.

Following that, opposition MPs yesterday brought Jayanthi to a press conference in Parliament to state that she was available to help the MACC if she was the key witness.

NONEJayanthi also claimed that she had been available to assist the MACC in their investigations at all times.

"The ACA (now MACC) have at all times been able to contact me earlier for my statement.

"After the announcement (written reply) by Nazri on Oct 23 (that no action would be taken), I called and asked the MACC who the key witness was that they were looking for.

"They were unable to answer me," she told reporters at Parliament.

Jayanthi was Lingam's former secretary at the time of the royal commission's probe into Lingam's alleged involvement in brokering the appointment of judges.

She was called in as a witness by the commission then to testify about a holiday to New Zealand which Lingam and former chief justice Eusoff Chin had taken together.

I agree with Nazri, she is not the witness, he cannot disclose the identity as he himself does not know and even the police does not know who it is, as the matter of fact no body knows who it is. It is that confidential.

And they are looking for that person...good luck!!
