Kera di hutan disusukan....Anak di rumah mati kelaparan (2)



Schools for Indonesian children will soon be sprouting up around the state of Sabah. After a “brainstorming session” with the Indonesian Consul General, the Ministry of Education has decided that Indonesian children in Sabah should not be deprived of a chance at education.

The first of many to come, Sekolah Indonesia Kota Kinabalu (SIKK) will reportedly be built in Alam Mesra, a high-end commercial zone in Likas, Sabah not far from Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS). In the same news report, it is estimated that a total number of 5,500Indonesian kids are already studying in 72 learning centers across the state of Sabah, mostly run by NGOs with the official endorsement of the Malaysian Ministry of Education.

The Indonesian Consulate General, one Rudhito Widagdo also claims that “there was no such term as illegal Indonesians for the Consulate” his countrymen “would enter Sabah legally and comply with Malaysian Immigration law by bringing along valid travel documents”.

Well, birds of a feather flock together. So do lying liars and politicians from both Malaysia and Indonesia.

For those who are unfamiliar with the overall state of Sabah, take my word that the local population in the rural districts is still very much entrapped in pre-Independence living conditions. The waves of development have evaded them deliberately for fifty years now. Opportunities for education are still very restricted and many of the district schools are wasting away in a pathetic state. Young girls getting married at the age of 14/15 is not uncommon. Meeting a 32-year-old mother of twelve children raises no eyebrow. Basic necessities like treated water, electricity and sewage treatment are foreign terms to a massive size of the rural population.

It is thus a great mystery as to why the UMNO government is more concerned and caring about trouble-making Indonesian street kids when our own Malaysian children are in an equally miserable state of existence. Then again, maybe it is not a totally unexpected move under Project IC.

While I am personally outraged at the misplaced priorities of UMNO, my final response to Sabahans will be: SERVE YOU RIGHT.

While the people of Peninsular Malaysia have woken up and vehemently rejected the perpetual corruption, mismanagement and arrogance of the UMNO government, the majority of Sabahans have opted for cowardice. Their fear of change and upsetting the status quo has now returned to collect its debt.

UMNO has long set its lustful eyes on the rich state of Sabah with the ultimate goal of establishing total Malay supremacy and eternal Islamic dominance.

The UMNO-back eradication of USNO in 1990 paved the long-awaited entry of UMNO into Sabah Borneo. There was no stopping UMNO since then. Like a black hole, UMNO wasted no time to devour all possible sources of wealth in the Land Beneath the Winds.

UMNO then attempted to dilute the predominant non-Muslim population of Sabah by encouraging the immigration of Muslim Malays from Peninsular Malaysia. By appointing these government officials to positions of authority in Sabah state agencies, UMNO hoped to solidify its position in Sabah before the local population awakens from its slumber. When this effort failed to occur at a desired pace, UMNO became impatient and opened the floodgates with the treacherous Project IC/Project Mahathir.

The face of Sabah has since transformed irreversibly and radically.

These new migrants arrived at Sabah’s shores in droves. They bred at a rate that put armadillos to shame.

Had it not been for the alternative news media, Project IC would never have come to light. Malaysians will still be in sweet oblivion hearing the perpetual niceties about Sabah being the model of racial unity and harmony.

The Malaysiakini scoop on Project IC arrived a little too late however.

With the chief minister’s throne firmly in UMNO’s possession now, the state government resumes its act of treason even more arrogantly and brazenly. After years of uninhibited immigration, the Muslim population has reached a sizeable figure by now with the selective issuance of Mykad and bumiputeraship to the Muslim Filipinos, Indonesians, Timorese and Pakistanis.

With such a massive foreign backing, UMNO has no fear now to up the ante and insult the native Sabahans right at their faces. Sekolah Indonesia Kota Kinabalu is but merely one such example.

UMNO’s plans for Sabah are anything but complete. Political hegemony and economic monopoly will never suffice. UMNO will not rest on its laurels until the Islamization of Sabah has reached the degree seen over in Peninsular Malaysia.

Even as Catholic churches are operating from humble shacks on squatter land, the UMNO state government has been erecting posh mosques all over Sabah. Even a district with minimal Muslim population like Pitas has a mosque fit for a prince.

Sabahans can justify their support for the Barisan Nasional all they want. No one will deny that Sabah politics is unique and complex. The people of Sabah have been sold out by both the Kitingan brothers as well as UMNO, and their remaining choices are once again political parties originating from Peninsular Malaysia like PKR and DAP. It is understandably not easy for Sabahans to reject their bumiputera feudal warlords in Barisan Nasional. Nevertheless, some things are plain to see. UMNO has no sincere intention to prosper the natives of Sabah.

In fact, it is very much the opposite. By merely neglecting their needs and adversities, UMNO is practically committing a bloodless genocide to the predominant non-Muslim population of Sabah.

In HINDRAF’s terms, it is ethnic cleansing. Personally, I dub it as an outward betrayal of the gullible and ever-trusting Sabahans.

Now what will Sabahans call it?

Anu bah?

Hate Sabahans?

Think you need to re-read the whole article again.

If we hate someone, we'd let him/her rot in ignorance.

If we love someone, we'd warn the person of the dangers and risks ahead and wake them from their slumber.

Think again, friend.

So what do you want these children to be? Uneducated fools?

These schools are built using their own money, not by the Malaysian government.

In fact, there are already many of such schools in Sabah, but they were in rented premises.

Even the British treated Indonesian and Chinese immigrants humanely by giving them identification cards, while you support the dehumanising treatments of fellow human beings by depriving them of any identification, including birth certificates and education.

Ir. Hj. Othman,
My point was the misplaced priorities of our goverment.
My blog title explained it all.
Do you really think that there is totally zero cost incurred by the Malaysian people in this project?
If the UMNO government has done its job of educating our own local children well, i will shut up and let UMNO perform whatever 'humane' projects it wants.
Evidence that the present UMNO government favors the Muslim migrants much more than the non-Muslim population are abundant.
Let's not be emotional about it.
Let's be objective.
Thank you for reading.

ir hj othman bin hj ahmad:

The British have more resources. Do we have the same ? (left over from whatever corruption)

Using your same logic (you want these chilren to spread diseases around?),we might as well offer these illegal children full medical cover like a citizen. Wait till one day one of our loved ones are in dire need of treatment, and the answer is : Ubat habis, katil tiada.

Please go to US or Britain and ask for treatment without insurance cover...and let us know if you can even get Panadol FOC.

THE point is, if resources are UNLIMITED, yeah go ahead, do whatever. BUT RESOURCES ARE LIMITED and priorities must me made. Its sad for humanity but life is unfair.

Using your same logic again, we might as well open the floodgates to the many starving African children and open free canteens. You want these children to die starving?

So what if the schools are built with their own money? What next? They can built their own homes? Their own jetty? Their own mosque/church/temples? Their own city? Their own state? Might as well let them be the Chief Minister.

I support humanity but resources are limited and I think citizens should get priority. If resources are unlimited yeah, support the whole world, save the earth.

The best solution is to repatriate these kids. It's sad for them, it's sad for humanity, it's an unfair world.

Anonymous,
The Project IC migrants are already receiving free medical benefits.
The state government had decided that these special migrants must not be denied any possible medical intervention.
Thus, we see a wide range of expensive drugs and complex surgical procedure are performed totally FOC for them.
My other article "Now, everyone can be a bajau" has more details.

wat's the purpose of project IC? it's not on humane ground definitely. it's just for political objective to increase the number of muslim voters in sabah, to allow the UMNO penetration. and i say this with the most objective mind ever as a sabahan.

i dun agree with u at all IR.

Evidently far quicker and more effective than proselytizing. Dream scheme with instant results.

Diabolical strategy.

First there is strength in numbers then there is the tyranny of the majority.

I don't see any point in knocking any sense into UMNOPutras like Ir. Hj. Othman bin Hj. Ahmad who blindly (or pretend to be) commend and defend the policies of UMNO.

He is so inclined to assist the Indonesians become Malaysias. I wonder if he would also support the same effort for the Thais, Chinese and Indians from abroad who want to be citizens.

The Indonesians have contributed nothing economically to Malaysia but they are still treasured above the others as assets to the nation, when clearly these are the people who are draining our coffers dry. There are so many Thais, Chinese and Indians languishing out there waiting for their citizenship but were turned down time and time again, despite faithfully proving their worth for decades.

Which fool would believe Ir. Hj. Othman bin Hj. Ahmad that all these efforts to help the Indonesians are not for political gains? Please wake up Ir. Hj. Othman bin Hj. Ahmad, you are now in the era of Pakatan Rakyat. Gone are the days of your corrupt UMNO.

I suggest the Sabah government repatriate all the Indonesians who have entered our country illegally and are now seeking citizenship from us.

Don't wait until the day comes when these people start taking over your government. When that day comes, all that's left for you is regret. Stop the rot while you can.

i still think ignorance is the cancer among sabahans... the tidak tahu, tidak mau tahu, or rather tidak berani tahu attitude is killing them!!!

what do you know about humanity IR about providing education to indonesian, 1st class medical service plus Intensive care unit (ICU) care for thiefts or trouble makers (indonesians) who gets into fights and hurt after getting drunk.

or non locals receiving treatment from shocks and sepsis not to mention STDs and HIV, and doctors from the districts in sabah have to tell local patients that KK has no beds for you, fake it saying you guys are too ill and would probably have to die here...

instead now doctors should be more frank with the patients, tell them in their face that ICU or hospitals in KK are now treating non locals, you unfortunately are local but got sick in the wrong place and thus would have to suffer here as KK hospitals are not taking you guys in... would be a good wake up call for the locals

can you even imagine a locals government servant in her 30's serving in general hospital queen elizabeth for the passed 10 years engage in pension scheme suffering from lung cancer needing social welfare funding for cancer treatment was told in her face that there is no BUDGET, and thus you have to look for your own funding!!!

come on...sabahan serving sabahans her whole life, engage in pension scheme, and now don't even get any benefit from government with just a simple phrase "tiada peruntukan". is this health benefit from pension scheme still valid? where did the money go?

you got your answer right there from IR, nurturing non locals to rule sabahans one day!!!

wake up for god sake!!!
