Filem 13 Mei pasti provokasi ala ‘Interlok’

July 23, 2012 at 11:51 pm 47 comments

Bersambung daripada ‘May 13 and Pakatan’s perpetual hysteria‘.

Undi penonton di YouTube bagi treler filem Tanda Putera

Filem Tanda Putera, yang mengisahkan persahabatan antara Tun Razak dan timbalannya Tun Dr Ismail dengan berlatarkan kejadian 13 Mei, dijadual untuk ditayangkan di pawagam menjelang Hari Malaysia (Sept 16).

Setakat ini, sedutan beberapa adegan filem yang dimuat-turun di YouTube sudah ditonton sebanyak 29,000 kali. Seramai 94.3 peratus pelayar Internet yang melihat treler filem arahan Shuhaimi Baba itu – yang memberi maklum balas mereka – tidak menyukainya.

Pada suatu ketika dahulu, masyarakat keturunan India rata-rata membantah novel Interlok digunakan sebagai buku teks sastera di sekolah. Seterusnya Nasi Lemak 2.0 juga menimbulkan kontroversi walaupun di kalangan orangramai yang belum atau enggan menonton filem terbitan Namewee tersebut – baca sini.

Reaksi khalayak umum kepada wacana Mei 13 semestinya bergariskan polemik perkauman. Kalau orang Melayu memprotes Nasi Lemak, pasti orang Tionghua mempertikaikan Tanda Putera gara-gara sentimen kaum Cina pada masa kini sudahpun diapi-apikan ke tahap meluap.

DAPSubangJaya ialah pejabat Hannah Yeoh

Siapa lebih provokatif?

Seorang pembaca setia blog ini yang menggelar dirinya ‘Sshsn’ meninggalkan komen berikut:

“So Moo Din broaches the subject and suddenly the opposition is blamed for it?”

Mengikut ‘Sshsn’, meskipun Muhyiddin Yassin yang menyebut perkara Mei 13, namun sebaliknya pihak pembangkang dipersalahkan oleh para penyokong Umno.

Baiklah, biar kita kaji semula butir yang dikemukakan oleh ‘Sshsn’. Mengimbas kembali, Muhyiddin telah dipetik sebagai berkata:

The young generation has to be united in order to ensure the country remains stable and peaceful and to avoid a repeat of the May 13, 1969 tragedy.

Adakah kata-kata nasihat timbalan perdana menteri boleh dikira provokatif?

Cuba teliti maki-hamun yang melambak-lambak terhadap TPM di alam maya, misalannya cercaan-cercaan kesat, “A pariah of the lowest class“, “rabid and raceest cow, MOOOhidin”, “moron and idiot Mooyidin!!!”

Screenshot: Komen-komen dibuat pembaca ‘Malaysiakini’

Ramai juga penyokong pembangkang yang mencemuh pendirian “Malay first” Muhyiddin yang disama-ertikan dengan ‘rasis’ dalam perbendaharaan kata DAP.

‘Tuah’, seorang pembaca Malaysiakini bertanya:

“Adakah anda mempercayai bahawa beliau ikhlas (yakni dalam mengesyorkan agar golongan remaja pelbagai kaum bersatupadu supaya negara boleh kekal aman damai serta untuk mengelak tragedi 13 Mei 1969 daripada berulang) memandangkan Muhyiddin menganggap dirinya ‘Melayu first, Malaysian second’?

Pada hemat saya, Muhyiddin sekurang-kurangnya sanggup berterus-terang apabila diasak Lim Kit Siang. Beliau tidak mempunyai lidah bercabang seperti ikon-ikon Malaysian First yang selalu bercakap menyedapkan telinga.

Selain itu, Muhyiddin juga menjadi mangsa fitnah seorang pembaca bernama ‘Odin’ yang menuduh beliau telah mengenalpasti Lim Guan Eng sebagai salah seorang yang bertanggungjawab mencetuskan rusuhan kaum 13 Mei.

Bila TPM ada pernah mendakwa bahawa Guan Eng terlibat dalam peristiwa hitam itu?

Berani pelanggan Melaysiakini tersebut menuding jari kepada Muhyiddin sebagai seorang “bloody liar” pula. Puak pembohong ini kalau terlepas peluang memfitnah maka nama mereka tentu bukan lagi DAPster.

Gaya Guan ‘streetfighter’ Eng

Para DAPster juga begitu ghairah menyebar cerita-cerita rekaan yang jahat sekali, contohnya (lihat screenshot komen pembaca Malaysiakini, bawah) — “let’s be prepared against our own Ministers killing us” dan “[BN] will be sending out their goons to start another May 13 … they will even kill their own mothers to hold on to power”.

Inilah fiil DAPster menjolok sarang tebuan.

Cemuhan dan tebaran fitnah oleh DAPster di atas hanya dipetik dari Malaysiakini sahaja. Bayangkan bagaimana gelagat si DAPster di portal-portal pro-pembangkang tegar yang lain serta pembohongan meluas yang mereka lakukan di media sosial.

Tuduhan-tudahan DAPster terhadap Umno, mengatakan parti “rasis” Melayu itu memang sanggup membuat apa sahaja termasuk berkomplot mencetuskan rusuhan dan membunuh barang sesiapa, adalah umpama karenah Kim Guan Eng yang mengatakan “sekiranya Umno kembali berkuasa [di Pulau Pinang], saya rasa semua kuil Hindu terancam” – baca SINI dan SINI.

Sungguhpun mengenakan sut dan tali leher namun gaya Kim masih streetfighter

    I have never seen Dapsters so rattled to the very core. Unker kit siang who happens to be unwell and live in the shadow while his son runs the party had to step into the light and instigate hatred towards BN again.

    I really don’t understand these people. Who are they, to deny the history? These people proudly promoting US, UK and compared it with Malaysia. But i’d like to ask them, when Malcolm X and Martin Luther King were brought to silver screen, does it attract so much hatred and abuse that these people made all over the net?

    Being absolutely rude and volatile against a historical facts, is absolutely ridiculous and stupid of the highest order. This is history we are talking about.

    What kind of education these people have back in school??? dah takda nilai2 murni, adap dan sopan??

    They comes like a wolf pack, thats for sure. Their language, attitude doesn’t bode well for this country. Like Shamsul Anuar says Dapsters are putting the chinese on a collision course with the Malay. A head on collision with a dire consequences. That must be stop. If we read Malay blog you won’t see this kind of words. They’re inciting people to riot and anarchy. Siege Mentality and paranoid.

    Surely they won’t comment like that in person or else they got whacked!!!!. By hiding behind a pseudonym anyone can say anything. Lempar batu sembunyi tangan.

    What they didn’t see is how much anger the Malays felt when reading it. I for one stopped reading Mkini etc…..my blood boiled.
    and I’m not an UMNO member.

    Where else in this world can anyone curse/insult/belittle/slander the ruling party and…go scott-free??? Try doing that in Singapore. Hahaha. A bunch of cry-babies.

    If we’re a foreigner who’s never been to Malaysia and reading Mkini we’ll think Malaysia is a country goin’ to explode….or will she explode?? Take a deep breath and think hard.

    Thank you Helen for highlighting this..You’re the endangered species in this chaotic country called MALAYSIA.

    I would like to comment about the general Malay mentality when provoked/insulted…. maybe later.

    Helen ,

    There is nothing wrong in Muhyiddin ‘s statement. It is a sound advice. That we must not take racial harmony with granted.

    I know very well DAP’s tactic. Manipulate and spin whatever UMNO leaders said. It is done continously to paint the picture that UMNO is racist (by extension Malays are racist).

    The racist actually is DAP. This is the party that continously harps on racist remarks. And it is testing the patience to the limit. Only God knows what would happen when t he patience is gone.

    Now i realise why my father during his life time said that DAP, given power, will result in annihilition of malays.
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    The evangelists in DAP, given power, will result in a catastrophe too for the Chinese. They’re not only testing Malay patience, other races are similarly fed up to the neck with them (I know some of my Hindu friends are). So are the old-school Christians repulsed by their cult behaviour. — Helen

    It is rather interesting reading comments on this topic. Many would form a conclusion based on the ongoing war between the main media and the alternative media, some probably from BTN and only a few would actually know what really happened during those times through their interaction.

    I don’t know if many realized, the May 13 was only concentrated in urbanized area not the rural segment of it. What does that tell us? Aaisah people !!! Political then is the same politics today just advanced with the techno and maybe we got a bit gutsier in words minus deeds being armchair critics.

    My thingy is why do we keep looking back at history to derive what could happen and what could not happen in the current scenario. If May 13 was such a bedrock for instability, how come nothing happened until GE12. Were we such cowards to live in fear and ensure our own propensity for $$$ beyond what should be humane and reality even when such travesty existed?

    Surely we can see through the lenses that UMNO & DAP are playing politics reminiscing May 13 to make their own ends meet and this has nothing to do with regular Joe/Jane like you and me. GE12 happened because regular joe/jane got unshackled for what is humane and reality thanks to HINDRAF.

    I am not being racist here fellow Malaysians, just that it is the truth and reality on the surface. It is like chasing a rat to a corner and it will eventually fight back as it is a matter of survival not individual convenience that we are accustomed to. These political parties fail to acknowledge that time have changed, and they cannot keep harping on something as stale as 1969 under the current with their mundane agenda that really does not hold any water amongst most Malaysians.

    By trying to stir the hornet’s nest of May 13, isn’t it obvious, the political immaturity exercised by both UMNO and DAP or are they just taking us for fools whom they purport that we know nothing beyond our four walls as long as it serves us individually rather one that is collective for the community. I can’t blame them to think in such a way as at most instances it has only been words not deeds for fear to lose one’s individual comfort.

    So, rather than talking politics being a NATO, why don’t we spend our time on issues that concerns our fellow Malaysian irrespective of their origin and bantai both BN and PR if their policies or their antics cause unnecessary aggravation amongst the Malaysian irrespective of our origin. Is that too much to ask?

    Just a question, how many of you commentors here think that Interlok was a good compulsory literature that harnesses harmony among multicultural society in the present day and scenario? Don’t be shy, give me a honest opinion not one based on religion, race, origin or what is politically right. Ciao!!!

      Muhyiddin as Education Minister introduced the ruling to make a pass in History SPM paper compulsory.

      He was responding to the DAPsters – the ones whose provocative comments you see screenshot on this page are just the tip of the provocation iceberg – that are buta sejarah.

      Is there anything sinister in the timing of the release of the Tun Razak biopic considering it’s financed by Finas? Or is it a film whose time has come given the rapid escalation of DAPsterism in the past several years since 2008?

      MiNY, you say:

      “These political parties fail to acknowledge that time have changed, and they cannot keep harping on something as stale as 1969 under the current with their mundane agenda that really does not hold any water amongst most Malaysians.”

      I do not see May 13 as stale. In fact, the current circumstances take us back closer to 1969 than any time before in the relatively peaceful past decades.

      Remember Newton’s Third Law of Motion that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction?

      What kind of reaction do you think the DAPster action is likely to elicit? Do you not think that force will eventually be met with force?

      I will not be surprised that when Malaysia comes to the end of the country’s collective patience with the DAPster streetfighters, the mainline thinking will be that such knuckleduster behaviour can only be contained by equal force.

        Dear Helen,

        You say “I do not see May 13 as stale. In fact, the current circumstances take us back closer to 1969 than any time before in the relatively peaceful past decades”. I agree with you, but why?

        Then you have to revisit the 1st & 2nd law of Motion by Newton that creates the 3rd law. Once the 1st law ie force by acceleration or velocity and the 2nd law whether how we are able to produce the inbalance creates the 3rd law. We are not talking about science and proven methods, but our human factors subjectively based on our humanity, morality and realism that cannot be quantified nor gauged but in unity and in our action, maybe lies the answers why acceleration and not the velocity that is the answer to force that we can create.

        In your blog today you and I can provide the acceleration by our unity only if we are truthful to ourselves rather living in a bigotry scenario for what it should be or how it should be at least in their perceived minds. I am sure you are doing it and living it. We all can preach of what should be and what can be but our own inaction leads the path in assumption and the “know how” attitude that prevails for our society at large for the benefit of these politicans.

        This can only happen if we are not concerned of the consequences but what is real for the unfortunate ones as oppose to what is good for us individually. Humanity is not science or politican made vision, but the reality and truth that we keep failing to acknowledge to suck up for own own needs.

        Sharifah,
        You are right but with an obiter dictum in this particular commentary. Read my comment properly. Nobody spoke about 1969 until now with the run down for GE13. Why,by whom and for what purpose? Why bring back unpleasant memory. Malaysia today is not Malaysia in 1969.

        Don’t take piece meal paragraph in a commentary and make a mountain of a mole hole, read and digest the whole context and the objective will become clearer if we want it to be or rather shut one eye as one feels justified in his/her cause of action. Thank you for your comment anyway.

      You seem to very sensitive on anything Indian.. I didn’t realise that you are Indian as I initially thought you are a Chinese.bloke working in New York.

      As per to your question , . was Interlok a good compulsory literature literature that harness harmony among multicultural society? My honest opinion that this literature is better than “Ranjau sepanjang Jalan” as “Ranjau sepanjang Jalan” depicted only a section of Malaysian society i.e the Malays.. Interlok provide a multicultural setting, ie Indians from Dravidian caste manage to overcome many hurdles and make it great living in Malaysia. This should be a motivational story to all Indians.

      If this Indian guy came from a higher caste i.e Brahmin, the achievement will not be so great as he had the means to be successful.

      This is my honest comment from a Malay guy with a Malay perspective but had experienced living in an Indian community.

Surely you don’t think I am mocking you because your worldly knowledge seems somewhat restricted from what you have stated. I know it not your fault, but that is just the way it is for most Malaysians who fails to think beyond their tempurung to justify their own actions besides dealing with the truth and reality for the masses.

        Dei Ane!, You asked us for an honest opinion and I gave my honest opinion based on my life experience and my Malay perspective.

        Next, you chastised me, saying things “built in through your BTN lectures” and “Malaysians who fails to think beyond their tempurung”. What do you expect?

        So you are expecting I wrote something like this “Interlok is a garbage literature fit for the dustbin. This literature that was sponsored by the racist UMNO to ridicule the Indian masses and this literature should be banned long time ago”… Macam tu kah…

        I am sure the author of Interlok was conveying his life experience dealing with Indians in Malaysia. The author is honest in his writings but some people will labelled him as racist because of the “P” word. Apa macam if the “P” words is also banned from the Vedas.

To have force in your thoughts means you are ready to give up everything material and $$$$ without any expectation, and trust me that is No, No zone for any politician and most of us. This is not science, or an algorithm to quantity humane feelings that we define according to our whims and fancies but a cause for the betterment of the community even if it takes a century to achieve it. Truth will always prevail if we are ready, able and willing irrespective of our origin but we must find it within us to identity it.

    Helen,

    Many people especially young people takes May 13 lightly. They feel it is too distant or impossible to happen again. And many feel that UMNO just said it to scare everyone to support it.

    And there are many ( including malays) who put the blame on Tun razak. Only they were red faced when I told them about “ludah dan penyapu yang ditunjukkan pada melayu” on May 13.

    I am not anti chinese. What irk me is that I feel majority of chinese as if happy to ride along with DAP, hoping to to take advantage while DAP attacking UMNO and also Malays.

    Perhaps they forgot that DAP is making them the “shield” while insinuating and slandering Malays. The Chinese is actually putting themselves EXACTLY on collision course with malays.

    How? Simple example on “allah” issue or insisting on non Chinese teachers out of Chinese schools. Or keep lamenting how a certain Malay billionaire is “pampered” simply because he is a Malay . Or praising some stupid boy insulting Malays in his “rap” useless song. Or by putting racial flavour on one UMNO’s MP who questioned why ambiga should not be tried for treason.

    One Chinese friend of mine( a convert) told me what vernacular newspaper wrote. I feel like slapping the editor’s face for insulting remarks on Malay leaders.

      On one side, we have the Malay and Chinese extremists fanning the racial tension, while on the other side, we have worried and concerned centrists trying to pull everyone back from the far left and right of the spectrum.

      In our obsession we forgot the marginalised Indians and the fringe secessionist movement in Sabah and Sarawak. We overlooked the external threats from our ambitious neighbours and competition from other nations who eye our prosperity, wealth and sovereignty.

      It would be enjoyable to pit the Malay ultras with the Sinocentric racists, if not for the tragic outcome we learned from May the 13th.

    Don’t justify yourself brother, in Malaysia it is not Malay, Chinese, Indian or lain-lain, but just Malaysian. If you are Malaysian enough, then you don’t have to feel to justify your position based of an origin.

        The moment they won some seats in 1969 they lead a procession to chase Malays out of KL.

        While the “racist parties” the like of UMNO, MIC and MCA accepted the reality of racial politics and they learned to compromise with each other. You can be Indians, Chinese and Malays in Malaysia.. no need to change your language and your religion in order to be accepted in Malaysia but must accept the reality living here.

        The antagonizing commentors here are Malaysian like you and me and I feel we need to hear them out as well if they have rational substance in their arguments.

        You should visit the alternative medias like Mkini, MI, MC — those commentors practically slaughter you as there is no logic or reasoning just brainwashed mandate.

        I am sure all of us have the best interest for one another within our community, so we should not blatantly classify someone or anyone racist for the benefit of the politicians.

    Tanda Putera is a worthwhile watch. Of course, if folks draw conlusions on a two-hour movie based on a 90-second trailer…

      The thing is that we will respond along racial lines, just like how M’sians responded to both Interlok & Nasi Lemak without reading/watching b’cos latent sensitivities are triggered — in the case of the movie b’cos of the Namewee persona and in the case of the novel, b’cos of the ‘pariah’ word.

      With May 13, needless to say, it’s an emotive topic with Chinese. Even a non-opposition supporter like me would put a question mark against the production (i.e. whether the story is only told from one side, like Peristiwa Bukit Kepong, say).

      You must have watched Tanda Putera in preview as it’s not out in the cinema as yet.

        Lucky me, eh?

        Most folks came out of the cinema with tears flowing freely… most of the trailer comes from the first few minutes of the actual movie. Call it guerilla marketing if you wish :)

        Movie release postponed by FINAS. Perhaps the marketing was too successful due to the massive “dislikes” in youtube? I mean, Namewee creates one after another “entertainment-based” movies (that is to put it kindly, the kindest possible wording) and he will claim that his movies are more 1Malaysia than Tanda Putera.

        Datuk Paduka Suhaimi’s mistake? She should have given Tun Razak and Tun Ismail 4 Chinese personal secretaries, 6 Indian general secretaries, 3 Kadazan finance secretaries and 2 Iban administrative assistants. The Government is overstaffed mah.

    Helen,

    I think you should also qualify the viewing statistics for the Tanda Putera trailer: of 29,000 views, less than 10% bothered to indicate an like / dislike opinion. Of those who did click on a thumb, those who “disliked” achieved a landslide.

    In some ways it relates to an earlier comment on landslide victories if GE13 were conducted on FB. :)

    P.S. Thanks. Have updated in the main body text.

      Aye, and less than 10% of those who viewed the clip bothered to log in or register to vote… sound familiar?

    Salam dek Helen,

    Tak dapat tidak Pak Ard teringin juga nak cerita sudut pandang Pak Ard tentang 13 Mei 69.

    Kalau tak silap ketika itu LKS adalah ketua sayap pemuda DAP. Pak Ard tak tahu sama ada UMNO yang buatkan dan suruh pemuda-pemuda Cina bawa penyapu besar dan menjerit-jerit memaki hamun, menghalau dan menghina orang Melayu. Ia berlaku di Kuala Lumpur dan pergaduhan juga berlaku di beberapa bandar.

    Namun di tempat-tempat lain keadaannya berbeza, masing-masing lebih mengambil tindakan bertahan. Orang Melayu di kampong bersiap dengan parang dan buluh tajam, orang Cina di kampong nelayan atau kebun sayur juga begitu. Tidak ada serang-menyerang, lebih kepada mempertahankan diri. Ada beberapa orang dari kedua-dua pihak yang menjadi pengantara, saling memberi maklumat, bila tercetus kekecohan, akan segera disiasat dan maklumat disampaikan untuk mengelak salah faham. Pertumpahan darah dapat dikekang.

    Pada masa itu orang Melayu tiada minat berniaga, hampir setiap kampong ada kedai runcit Cina. Mereka ini tidak diapa-apakan, kerana sudah terbiasa hidup bersama, malah orang kampung memastikan sahabat Cina mereka tidak diapa-apakan oleh orang luar. Ya, pergaduhan berlaku juga di sana-sini, tetapi tidak merebak.

    Sekarang bagaimana? Beruntunglah masih ramai orang Melayu terutama di kampong yang tidak pedulikan apa yang berlaku di alam cyber. Yang selalu ke alam cyber lebih cenderung ke alam cyber Melayu. Pak Ard berharap dan menyeru agar ada pengiat-pengiat di alam cyber berbahasa Inggeris dapat mengalih bahasakan apa yang diperkatakan tentang orang Melayu dan sampaikan kepada seramai khalayak Melayu yang boleh.

    Atau lebih mudah mereka yang menulis di ruang cyber dan akhbar Cina hantarkan juga alihbahasa ke akhbar Melayu. Ini penting supaya orang Melayu sedar apa yang orang lain kata tentang mereka dan kemudiannya mereka akan menerimanya dengan lapang dada.

    Sudah lama pohon dibaja, berbunga sudah berputik pun sudah, apa nak halang buah meranum, baru tahu masam manisnya. Sekian…

    Sam,

    Exactly my point. I like Muhyiddin would be slandered for saying the truth. any Malay who give view not in line with “lim Dynasty”s thinking” are ‘automatically racist”.

    My point is simple. If Malays like me are so racist, we have ample time to treat Kit siang or entire Chinese population the way Serbs treated bosnians.

    Blunt? Harsh? arrogant? really what is stopping UMNO, in its might 40 years ago from doing that? It simply can bulldoze on others.

    In its history of ruling the country, it has never done that because that is not UMNO’s intention. And Malays are not racist. We are just responding on countless “fitnah” by uncle Lim and DAP.

    Anwar Penipu, my response to your “nak cakap pasal kemanusiaan, kenapa apek tak balik malaysia? asyik kat new york? nak jaga buntut orang new york ke?”

    Can I ask you a simple question? Is humanity defined by the geographical sphere, or you are able to deal with it wherever you are? Just because I am in New York does this make me less humane than Malaysian in Malaysia.

    Why should anything ie race, religion, origin clash with anyone one when one deal with a humane factor. Give uplah!!!!

        Anwar Penipu, you ini is a classic mandore. Because people like you, i feel pity for the Malay community, everything about agenda not what is the truth and reality. i am sure you are thick skinned enough for what fits your agenda as you are not the typical Melayu yang gives weight for humanity and reality for others. I don’t even think you are a Melayu but portray to be one because it serves your agenda. I lived and still am living with them in and I know how genuine they are. Don’t disgrace the Melayu race for your own agenda

    Goodoo, you say “ So you are expecting I wrote something like this “Interlok is a garbage literature fit for the dustbin. This literature that was sponsored by the racist UMNO to ridicule the Indian masses and this literature should be banned long time ago”… Macam tu kah…”

    My deduction of katak di bawah tempurung is because you extend a simple “yes” and “no” answer as though your know everything about Dravidian and Brahmin and how you came to a conclusion. Similarly I can also make my inconclusive conclusion about a lot of things just for the sake of saying it.

    The individual intention is not important but to look at the bigger picture in Malaysia, so for someone like you who have minuscule knowledge of the Indians create a tempurung for what who think is right.
    Learn to argue with substance not just for the sake of arguing.
