Tanda Putera – Najib’s 1Malaysia bullshit!

Tanda Putera – Najib’s 1Malaysia bullshit!

Parti Syaitan (Satan’s Party)

THE screening of Tanda Putera, clearly aimed at inciting racial and religious discord, shows beyond doubt caretaker prime minister Najib Abdul Razak and Barisan Nasional (BN)’s gross irresponsibility to national unity.
The screening of Tanda Putera is undoubtedly BN’s evil intention to retain political power at all costs, including bloodshed and loss of lives.
Fortunately for the majority of Malaysians, this is the 21st century, not the 19th, and the people are more informed.
PAS leaders have said that they will protect the non-Malays should Umno resort to violence and rightly, PAS members on the ground have also advised non-Malays to come out in full force to vote out the evil, corrupt and racist Umno-led BN and return home after casting their ballots.

This will ensure that Umno hooligans cannot start a racial riot – only clashes with Malays if Umno so chooses.
Why is there a need to screen Tanda Putera, a movie produced reignite the May 13 violent a bloody racial clashes after 55 years of harmony?
The answer is evidently clear – to root for Malay support to win the May 5 vote to govern with the divide-and-rule strategy so as to continue plundering the nation’s wealth, ensuring the people remains poor and Umno and BN cronies get richer and richer.
BN has evolved into a political devil – devoid of conscience and humanity.
BN-Umno’s crave for personal wealth knows no bound and everything in its way, including the rakyat, must be put down for its political survival.
The political scenario and BN-Umno’s agenda is very clear for all to see since Merdeka. The May 5 vote is about saving ourselves and country from BN’s selfish and destructive ways.
Here’s an article published by malaysiakini for more views on Tanda Putera:

Screening of Tanda Putera is reckless

The litany of offences by the BN is now not only alarming but also is dangerous.
The latest, the closed door screening of ‘Tanda Putera' to Felda settlers is not just reckless but is begging a spark to ignite a powder keg created by the BN.

Mature citizens have long forgotten this aberration in our history. By raising the spectre of May 13, it would seem that all rational thinking has departed from the BN political mindset.

It is akin to the scorched earth policy employed by Napoleon and Hitler whose armies laid waste to the land as they retreated from the battlefield, leaving the victors nothing but burnt land.

Meanwhile, the Home Affairs Ministry has lifted the ban on the ‘Viswaroopam' movie after much delay due to public calls.

The film was banned on Jan 25 following complaints made to the Home Ministry by the Indian Muslim Congress (Kimma) and the Federation of Indian Muslim Associations (Permim).

The Film Censorship Board made 12 cuts on the film. But Kimma and Permim made further complaints which resulted in the ministry setting up a special panel comprising of the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) and censorship board officers to review the film, focusing on religious and security aspects.

The Home Affairs Ministry then made another 12 cuts and now has announced the lifting of the ban. I understand that the film distributor, Lotus films, doesn't want to screen the movie after 24 cuts.

Kimma and Permim are Umno cronies and they want to be more Malay than Indian. They have more influence than all the other BN beggar parties like MIC, PPP and IPF.

These Indian based parties have no backbone and are depending on Umno and Premier Najib Razak to win back Indian votes.

In India itself ‘Viswaroopam' is being screened after seven cuts on the movie after protests from smaller Muslim groups.

But in Malaysia, the film censor board has made 24 cuts before lifting the ban.

‘Viswaroopam' is just like any other Hollywood or for that matter Tamil movie. This movie has been slaughtered beyond recognition.

Yet, without considering the consequences and the possible repercussions, Najib has allowed the screening of ‘Tanda Putera' to 3,000 Felda settlers.

A movie criticised by many as seditious and harmful to a multi-racial society is screened to targeted rural groups to poison their minds.
On the other hand Najib is reaching out to Indian and Chinese communities with sweet promises with no results yet.

Najib and Umno are now possessed by sheer desperation to stay in power. They don't care if its action can harm the people or the economy and take the country backwards.

They are forcing Malaysians of all backgrounds to choose only Umno/BN by hook or crook.

Where is the 1Malaysia feeling and spirit in these actions of PM and Umno. Is 1Malaysia a mere vote buying slogan? The PM must understand that action speaks louder than words.

In allowing venom to be spat at certain sectors of society by handpicked individuals, the BN is overtly encouraging and even supporting calls for the burning of religious books and the closure of Batu Caves just because it is inconvenient and causes a traffic jam once a year.

The founding fathers of this nation, including the PM's father would never have brooked such flagrant abuse, deprivation and deception.

The silence of the PM on these issues is egregious and borders on utter insanity if he expects the events to lead to their calculated catastrophe.

It is almost as if the BN has given up on anything clean or above board. The exposé on the number of phantoms, the torrid revelations at the Sabah RCI, should have prompted immediate action by the EC.

Instead, the EC chairperson asks an infantile question as to what detergent to use to bersih (clean) the rolls! His response is preposterous, it can only elicit shock and disbelief from right-thinking citizens, coming from a person appointed to ensure free and fair elections.

And he has the audacity to say that we can expect 'unexpected situations' to occur! All he has to do is to carry out his appointed task with the same reverence as his appointment letter reflects.

By his own admission, former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad has openly admitted that BN "is the devil you know." There is more truth in that Freudian slip than meets the eye.
