UMNO Tidak Releven Lagi?

Datok Mohd Ariff Sabri dalam blog postingnya telah menyuarakan pendapat beliau bahawa UMNO adalah sebuah parti yang hanya mementingkan segelintir ahli-ahli, keluarga and kroni-kroni mereka sahaja dan adalah rasuah.

Tapi pandainya laung-laungkan slogan iaitu UMNO lah parti yang dapat mempertahankan bangsa Melayu, agama dan tanah air.

Saya tidaklah arif dalam hal ini.

Datok Mohd Ariff adalah bekas seorang ahli parti UMNO dan juga pernah menjadi ketua penerangan cawangan UMNO Pekan dan bekas seorang ADUN Pahang.

Saya rasa beliau lebih arif dalam hal-hal parti UMNO.

Tapi, semakin ramai rakyat Malaysia menanggap UMNO sudah tidak releven dengan politik memecah-belahkan mereka.


English Version


Datok Mohd Ariff Sabri in his blog posting had expressed his view that UMNO is a party that only cares for a small group of its members, their families and cronies and is corrupt.

But is only good in singing that UMNO is the only party that can protect the Malay race, religion and the country.

I am not wise in this matter.

Datok Mohd Ariff was a former UMNO member and had been the Pekan UMNO information chief and a Pahang state assembly man.

He is more wise in the affairs of UMNO.

However, more and more Malaysians consider UMNO as no longer relevant with their divisive politics.

  1. "The UMNO is the only party that can protect the Malay race, religion and the country ....". That is not good enough. From what I read on the internet, the Malays have only a slim majority in Malaysia and the second largest ethnic group is the Chinese with about 25% of the population. Any ruling political party should aim to imrpove the lives of all the people living in Malaysia. China investing in Malaysia and theer are already 10 Chinese companies listed on the Malaysian stock market. And as you said, divisive politics are bad .. uniting all the ethnic groups who share Malaysia is the future.

    1. That's the unfortunate thing. Malaysian politics is mainly race-based. But things are slowly changing especially with the opposition parties. Parti Keadilan, the party led by Anwar Ibrahim, for example, has members from all races. So too does the Democratic Action Party (DAP) led by Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng which is lately attracting an increasing number of Malay members. Yes, the Chinese make up about 30% of the population and besides Chinese investments, China is also a major importer of some of our natural resources. Thanks for your comments, Giora. You seem to know quite a bit about Malaysia.

  2. While writing my Chinese novel, I made contacts with people living in China. One of them was born in Malaysia, grew up in Australia and then moved to work in Beijing. Via her I learned about the country. And recently the manger of Deutsches Gasthaus, a German restaurant/cafe in Kuala Lampoor said Hello to me. You might want to visit the place.

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
