Malaysiakini: ‘Racial action plan’: Umno says no such thing

‘Racial action plan’: Umno says no such thing
Beh Lih Yi & Muda Mohd Noor | Jan 10, 08 5:52pm
Umno leaders today denied there was a written directive purportedly signed by party secretary-general Radzi Sheikh Ahmad asking them to carry out a ‘racial issue action plan.’

Yesterday, PAS Youth chief Salahuddin Ayub filed a police report in Kuala Lumpur over the letter.

The letter, a copy of which was made available to Malaysiakini, was allegedly issued on Dec 20 amid rumours that a large-scale Malay rally is being planned to counter the one organised by the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf).

The letter was addressed to all Umno state liaison committee secretaries. It also carried the official Umno letterhead.

“I take this opportunity to announce the supreme council’s decision which met on Dec 19 that state liaison committee secretaries and division chiefs have to ensure the implementation and the success of the ‘racial issue action plan’ together with the help of BN (Barisan Nasional) component parties.

“The (BN) state liaison chiefs will give a briefing on how to carry out this ‘racial issue action plan’ which has been agreed upon by BN component parties that met on Dec 6,” stated the letter, which did not specify details of the purported plan.

It also called on Umno leaders to cooperate in implementing the plan to restore the people’s faith in BN.

No meeting, no letter

Despite numerous attempts, Radzi could not be reached for comment but other Umno leaders contacted by Malaysiakini denied the letter.

On the same note, a BN source told Malaysiakini that there was no meeting held on Dec 6 while a check revealed that the last Umno supreme council meeting was held on Dec 14.

Umno supreme council member Norza Zakaria said he was not aware of any such letter or discussions to implement the alleged plan.

“Furthermore, Hindraf leaders were detained under the ISA (Internal Security Act) then,” he noted, referring to the five Hindraf leaders arrested on Dec 13, a day before the last supreme council meeting.

“We (the supreme council) complimented the government for the action taken because it was the majority who wanted the (ISA) action to be taken,” he added when asked to elaborate on what was discussed during the meeting.

Dungun Umno division chief Rosli Mat Hassan said it was impossible for the party secretary-general to pen a letter which could lead to disorder in the country.

“I suspect the letter was written by PAS because they know the general elections is around the corner. Don’t fall for their trickery because they will do anything just to win the elections,” he claimed.

Seremban Umno division chief Ishak Ismail said his divisions and other divisions in Negeri Sembilan did not receive the letter.

National security issue

In his police report, Salahuddin claimed that he received a copy of the letter on Tuesday around 4pm at his office at the PAS headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. However, he did not reveal the source.

He urged the police to determine the authenticity of the letter as its content could threaten national security.

Last December, there were widespread rumours that a mass rally is being planned by Islamic welfare organisation Pekida in the Malay-majority Kampung Baru area in Kuala Lumpur.

Kampung Baru was also one of the main places hit during the May 13 racial riots in 1969.

The rumour about the purported rally spread via the short messaging service (SMS), prompting Pekida to issue a denial.

so sad to see this country deterioting day by day by the actions of unscrupulous,selfish and highly irresponsible politicians. Cant we do something?

Dear Intan,
Yes, we can.We need to put leaders with a different mindset from what they are now. For that we need to win seats in Parliament and Local Assembly. For that we need a system to fight the the injustices and sloppiness of the SPR. We need volunteers to help in order to realise those aims. it is not too difficult. We’ll teach you how. We’ll keep in touch.

It is a shame that tin pot dictators are indulged in the way they are in Malaysia. I wonder fear and corruption have anything to do with this.

It is high time that serious thinking MALAYSIANS drop their Muslim, Chinese and Hindu flags and fight as the peoples struggles MALAYSIANS.

Although with the helps of today advance multimedia, I believe the educated groups are now very well informed but unfortunately, our poor rural folks are still “blinded” and will be keep on “be blinded” by the control medias of our so call “government’s” bodies. I am very sad about the current situation of our country. I pray to GOD, please let this country to be lead by someone who his capable, clean, fair and “ADIL” , experience and a savior to all races, I will keep on praying…NAMO .AMITABHA…

bonda tak tahu nak tulis bahasa org putih tapi baca bonda faham. amal maaruf nahi mungkar itulah cogankata kita. redho, taat setia dan bersatu itulah perjuangan kita. ingat kebaikan orang lain terhadap kita. jangan ingat kebaikan yang telah kita lakukan. ingat kejahatan yang telah kita lakukan. jangan ingat kejahatan orang lain terhadap kita. amalkan kalam allah setiap masa walaupun dalam hati. allahhuakbar.


Yang kurang kita perbaiki, yg kurang molek kita molekkan – itulah tugas bagi yg lebih arif tentang keadaan-keadaan yang sedang melanda rakyat dari pelbagai latarbelakang…

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of people - Emily Cox

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
