Utusan Malaysia Mempromosikan Keganasan

Pakatan Rakyat mengecam tindakan akhbar harian Utusan Malaysia kerana menyiarkan sebuah cerpen yang mempromosikan keganasan dan mengapi-apikan sentimen perkauman baru-baru ini.

Dalam sebuah cerpen yang bertajuk “Politik Baru YBJ” tulisan Datuk Chamil Wariya yang terbit di Mingguan Malaysia minggu lepas mengisahkan mengenai perjalanan ahli parlimen Alam Maya, Josephine untuk menghadiri dialog dengan “generasi muda seketurunan dengannya yang pernah mempersendakan lagu Negaraku sewaktu menuntut di luar negara”.

Cerpen tersebut mengambarkan Josephine sebagai pro-Cina dan tidak mewakili pelbagai kaum, terutamanya oleh Parti Orang Melayu (POM). Akhirnya beliau ditembak mati oleh orang yang tidak dikenali atas sebab beliau “adalah ancaman terhadap keharmonian. Lebih baik riwayatnya ditamatkan supaya masyarakat berbilang kaum boleh tinggal aman damai di negara bertuah ini”.

Pakatan Rakyat melihat cerpen yang bersifat “character assassination” ini secara jelas ditujukan kepada Ahli Parlimen DAP, YB Teresa Kok yang ditahan dibawah ISA baru-baru ini.

Cerpen yang disiarkan di dalam akhbar milikan Umno tersebut adalah usaha berterusan Umno untuk menjadikan Exco Kerajaan Negeri Selangor itu sebagai sasaran untuk memecah-belahkan Pakatan Rakyat dan menimbulkan ketegangan di antara kaum.

Utusan Malaysia telah diboikot oleh Pakatan Rakyat sejak bulan Jun tahun ini atas sebab pelaporannya yang bias dan sering mempermainkan isu perkauman. Namun kini Utusan Malaysia bukan sahaja menyebarkan kebencian sesama kaum, tetapi sehingga ke tahap menggalakkan keganasan melalui karya cerpen. Ini merupakan perkembangan yang amat membimbangkan.

Pakatan Rakyat menegaskan bahawa kebebasan untuk berkarya harus selari dengan tanggungjawab sebagai rakyat Malaysia yang terdiri daripada pelbagai kaum dan agama iaitu tanpa menggugat perpaduan dan keharmonian kaum di negara ini.

Kami dengan ini mendesak agar Utusan Malaysia memohon maaf kepada seluruh rakyat Malaysia kerana menyiarkan cerpen yang membuat provokasi berbaur perkauman. Maka kami menyeru agar masyarakat umum memboikot Utusan Malaysia sehingga media arus perdana tersebut berhenti daripada mempermainkan isu ini..

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.
