Perkasa kurang ajar!

Ibrahim Ali menghulurkan angpow di rumah terbuka Perkasa. Namun jamuan makan sempena tahun baru Cina itu ibarat telunjuk lurus, kelingking berkait kerana angpow diberikan dalam sampul putih.

Orang Cina hanya menggunakan sampul putih apabila memberi sumbangan kepada upacara pengebumian. Warna putih melambangkan bala dan kematian.

Gambar Malaysiakini -- Ibrahim Ali memberi angpow RM10

Bagi tahun baru Cina mesti sampul merah — sebab itu disebut ia angpow (紅 包)

Apa jenis otak sakit yang sengaja melanggar adat dan menghina orang tua-tua sebegini?

Ibrahim Ali bukan Cina tetapi mahu menganjurkan majlis CNY. Politikus DAP bukan Islam tetapi melebih-lebih dengan jamuan membuka puasa di masjid dan lain-lain sandiwara.

Perkasa kata putih bermakna suci atau ikhlas

Hoi MCA! Tunjuk jantan sikit, boleh tak

Kesian Najib terpaksa pikul tanggungjawab seorang-seorang

  1. dia kurang ajar… tolong kasik ajar.
    tolong ajar juga memane politikus DAP yg ikut sesuhati dier je kurang ajar.

    1. Satu pihak nak buat tunjuk-tunjuk dia bukan rasis, satu lagi nak tunjuk dia bukan anti-Islam. Kesudahannya, giler.

      1. Yes may be color is important but sometimes ideology do change. For example during the old days I remeber Cjinese do not like black color as it also associated to death. But nowadays, you see chinese wear black clothes. So here it depends. White can mean suci murni. I prefer white envelope to black envelope.

    2. Tak apa, orang cina tak marah punya, kerana orang cina sudah biasa dengan polemik sebegini…semuanya adalah sandiwara politik untuk memancing undi…nanti, kawan politik cina akan memaki hamun, kononnya mereka adalah hero orng cina, dan rakan Melayu pula akan menjawap, pun nak jadi hero jugak pula….biasalah ….sandiwara murahan orang politik….orang cina tak marah punya…mereka cuma tergelak,geleng kepala dan meneruskan kesibukan mereka….yang memaki hamun ialah orang politik sekampung mereka untuk memancing undi…Sebagai seorang cina …saya tergelak besar bila terbaca berita ini….sandiwara baru laaaaa..
      Helen Ang pun nak jadi hero?

      Saya syorkan supaya lain kali pengomen ini menggunakan saja nama pena ‘SayaseorangCinabodoh‘ supaya tak usah seluruh kaum Cina terpalit dengan kebodohan peribadi seseorang itu. — Helen

  2. helen,mungkin niat dia ikhlas menganjurkan majlis tersebut dan mungkin juga beliau terlepas pandang hubungkait antara ang pow bewarna merah dan ang pow bewarna putih memberi pengertian yg berbeza dlm masyarakat cina.adalah lebih baik helen bertanya sendiri pada beliau berkenaan hal ini drp terus melabelkan perkasa sbg kurang ajar.sori ini hanya pandangan peribadi saya.kalau silap saya minta maaf

  3. mana yang lebih power “ang pow merah isinya RM10.00” tetapi “ang pow putih isinya RM100.00” , jika ditanya “bzz” yang kurang cerdik tentu dia pilih ang pow putih…tapi member aku lagi kurang belajar…ada ke patut aku datang rumah dia, diberinya aku ang pow tak ada sampul putih atau merah tetapi 3 keping wang kertas agung warna “UNGU”….(RM300.00) , aku tanya dia “hai…tak de sampul ke?…selamba dek aje dia jawab….kau nak ke sampul merah tu…paling tinggi rm50.00 aje….cepat2 aku sambar takut melepas…hehehe

  4. this where ignorence is not blissful…………………..it all depends on the’ niat ‘ .

    Is Ibrahim Ali ready to offer sincere apology, if you Helen highlight this matter to his ignorant Malay mind???????

    or he goes on his high horse, and no apology is given???
    __________________________________________________________________________

    Not me alone but I think by tomorrow many other Chinese will be in an uproar. Hard to believe it wasn’t a deliberate & calculated insult on a vulnerable group, i.e. poor senior citizens. — Helen

    1. you have to think , like a detective, what is the motive , to make awhole race angry?. why waste money. just send malay gangster from Jlan Kebun complete with perkida t-shirt , flag and head band.

      My self with many chinese friends know that red/ gold is good luck but only until today know white is for death.

      Almak during my friend funeral i gave contribution in red packet,helen is it salah or ok. giving condolence contribution in red packet.
      ____________________________________________________________________________

      Condolence shouldn’t be in red packet. However, if the deceased is old (over 80), the funeral is seen as a ‘celebration’ of his life, i.e. the mourners should not be sad b’cos he’s already lived long & passed away painlessly. — Helen

  5. i agree he is ignorant, but not really a big deal unless done by a Chinese, i believe he is sincere to give ‘ang pow’ to the senior citizen.

  6. bagi orang islam, putih itu suci murni, warna yg mengikut sunnah Nabi Muhammad saw. i shall not defend ibrahim ali, tapi saya rasa dia terlepas pandang dan bukan disengajakan. That he is ignorant is without a doubt. seharusnya dia peka bahawa merah adalah warna yg betul untuk tahun baru cina.

    1. Semua nak islam tu islam ni

      tak boleh ke ckp tanpa merujuk pada agama jer 24 jam

      cukup la setakat sebut ‘warna merah baru sopan mengikut adat cina’

      ni nak bagi ayat tambahan pulak, putih itu suci la aper la

      kalau benar ibrahim ali itu pemimpin Malaysia yg peka

      sudah tentu dia faham benda yang asas mcm ni dan menggunakan angpow merah

      anak melayu yg kecik pun faham kena bagi angpow merah

      ini pun Ibrahim Ali tak betul nak jadi YB buat apa? Dia kutuk pemimpin lain buat apa?

      1. rahim, you have a problem with my posting? salah ke saya memberi penjelasan dari muslim perspective vis-a-vis warna putih? atau anda sudah terlalu liberal-minded hingga tak sanggup mendengar perkataan ‘islam’?

  7. He is most likely not aware.

    Lets give him the benefit of doubts.
    Most important is the sincerity

    Any person would not go to such an extent to spite anybody or a whole race for that matter.
    If really indeed he wants to spite, there are many easy methods.

    Even not many people know such things, even Chinese themselves

    Even dressing code for funerals some people not sure.

  8. Cik Helen Ang tidak terfikir ke untuk menulis artikel menyatakan bahawa “Lim Kit Siang dan Namewee kurang ajar!” kerana masih tidak fasih bertutur Bahasa Malaysia secara khasnya dan rakyat Malaysia yang tidak fasih bertutur Bahasa Malaysia secara amnya?

    Mungkinkah lebih beradap sekiranya Cik Helen Ang memberi tajuk “PERKASA perlu belajar bahawa adat China perlu memberi Ang Pow merah pada Perayaan Tahun Baru CIna!”

    Adakah tajuk “kurang ajar!” Cik Helen Ang selektif?

    1. En. Abdul Razak Harun,

      Setiap masyarakat ada pantang larangnya. Kaum Cina amat pantang soal kematian dan perangai membawa ‘sui’.

      Tindakan Ibrahim Ali, terutamanya memberi angpow putih (yang bagi orang Cina diberikan kepada keluarga berkabung) lebih kurang melambangkan mesej ‘Kau pegi mampus’, lebih-lebih lagi yang diberikan angpow itu ialah orang tua dan uzur.

      Untuk orang Melayu dan Islam, warna putih itu juga warna kain kapan.

      Semua bank-bank dan syarikat besar memberikan sampul angpow percuma kepada pelanggan, bukan? Di TV pun banyak iklan menggambarkan angpow berwarna merah.

      Kalau saya bukan Islam dan saya tahu perkara kain kapan, yang warna putihnya sunnah, takkan Ibrahim Ali tidak tahu angpow merah setelah berpuluh-puluh tahun tengok TV? Yang mana ada ditunjukkan lebih di TV, angpow atau kain kapan?

  9. salam Helen, mohon copy cerita dan gambar :)
    _____________________________________________________________________________

    Salam Pak Din. Saya ada memberi penjelasan selanjutnya kepada En. Razak (komen #17) & Peminat Rocky (komen #25). — Helen

  10. it okey,but the important thing is that money inside of angpow,same like chinese politician make cny celeb and invite everybody include muslim but still in that celebration have beer at the table if they respect to the muslim they dont serve that beer in that event,but muslim are tolerance we dont make fuss at that thing,angpow thing is small, angpow is white but maybe the writing is in red .like hari raya,u give any color we accept because it is small thing but inside of that angpow is important.at least before any celebration please make’pantang note to the vip’at least he know what to do.

  11. Helen,

    I think he doesn’t know. Being a Malay centric grouping, he must be made more aware of the sensitivities of other Malaysian culture. This shows how much ethno-centric politics is very hard to nurture in a multi-racial society.

    If one decides to pursue that line, one must thread carefully the fine line or risk losing credibility altogether…

    I hope he apologize for the oversight

    1. Peminat Rocky,

      If an ordinary Malay says he doesn’t know, I might believe. But this guy is a Member of Parliament & runs Perkasa.

      Again if he was not the president of Perkasa but an ordinary Malay working in an office or selling pisang goreng, I might also believe he was unaware. But he’s not just an MP, he was formerly a deputy minister in Cabinet. So the excuse of lack of exposure does not apply in his case.

      This was clearly a publicity event and the old folks were ferried to the venue. Perkasa publicized it & invited the media to give coverage.

      The ‘ang’ 紅 in the word angpow means ‘red’. Most Malays know ‘ang’ means red. I know they know b’cos I’ve been asked often if my surname [Helen] Ang has anything to do with the colour red viz. ‘angpow’.

      I answer ‘no’, my surname Ang is written like this 洪 and means big waves, the radical on the left (the 3 strokes) represents drops of water.

      I suspect what Ibrahim did was calculated and timed to stoke racial unrest.

    1. Pak Din,

      The Malaysiakini report:

      “More than 300 senior citizens and residents received a boon at Perkasa’s first Chinese New Year open house today as close to RM10,000 was handed out.”

      “And when the envelopes ran out, they directly dished out the cash.”

      From the sequence in the MK report, it seems like (1) They were giving white angpow, and when the envelopes ran out, (2) they just gave the 10-ringgit note direct.

      Well, anyway let’s follow the uproar & the denials & counter-accusations flying.

      But let’s also consider this (in your posting): The Perkasa guy in his denial said they expected a turnout of 500 and since 1,000 turned up, they ran out of angpow envelopes.

      However, the Chinese senior citizens who were the specially invited guests were only 300. Reportedly Kg Baru residents (Malay faces can be seen in the photos) showed up when news spread that money was being distributed.

      In which case, since the Chinese old folks were the earliest guests among the first 300, they should not have been given the white packets as in the Ibrahim Ali photo. B’cos since Perkasa claimed to have expected 500, then presumably at least 500 angpows would have been prepared.

      Just my thoughts. Salam Pak.

  12. “I suspect what Ibrahim did was calculated and timed to stoke racial unrest.”

    can you elobrate and .give the reasons behind the statement ?, just want know your train of toughts.

    i rhink you give Ibrahim Ali tp much credit on his cultural sensitivety education back ground.

    We have too many uncouth GUNDUS running around as politician in malaysia on both side of the divide.

    P.S . i amnot condoning his actions , i also dont want the Ultra chauvnist having a field day wrecking the race relaton between Malaysians.

    rememder two can play the hate game.
    _______________________________________________________________________________

    I’ve been told some additional info behind the Jln Kebun disturbance. Let’s wait for Hindraf to come out with a statement. — Helen

    PS: Also choice of venue for the function. Kg Baru is closely linked to May 13.

    1. Well, let me put it this way,IA drop his soap in public shower,well did he purposely drop it or not does not matter.
      what matters is how “keng kang ” will he be, when leaving the said public shower.:):D

      That price to pay for being a politician who screw vup in Multi racial and Multicultural Malaysia.

      Sis, just Chill and watch the media circus start the opening act.
      Don’t forget to smile and enjoy the show.

  13. Hanya orang yang nak cari salah sahaja kata ini salah.
    Lepas ini semua Ahli Parlimen , pegawai2 kerajaan dan pejawat2 awam mesti melalui kursus mempelari budaya Bangsa lain dengan terpeinci, supaya tidak di label kurang ajar.
    _________________________________________________________________________________

    Kalau nak pertahankan habis-habis, apa sahaja IA buat tidak mungkin salah. Dia tu bukan sembarangan orang; kan dia ada ‘track record’? — Helen

  14. Itulah Pak Ibrahim Ali.. padan muka. Siapa suruh susah2 buat sambutan Tahun Baru Cina?

    RM10k melayang kasi donation.. bukan terima kasih yang diterima.. kutukan pulak yg bertubi2.. Sebabnya? Salah colour envelope. Besar betul dosanya.. Sampai Helen pun kata awak kurang ajar!

    Lain kali tak payah nak mengampu kaum Cina.. buang masa aje. Dia orang still tak suka you pun even if you give them each RM1000 in red packet. If nak jamu makan, jamu makan aje untuk semua kaum.. lagi bagus!

  15. I am sure many UMNO supporters will vist this site to voice their support or ignorance of PERKASA’s bungle in the CNY function. I guess that is what we call a freedom of speech. It is always good to exchange views and accept those rebuttals. However with all these views and its rebuttal, how do you define what is genuine and what is not. Are we doing it to defend a position or understand a charade had been made. Naturally it is an individual choice. The ability to think and dissect should revolves beyond race or origin but the objectivity and a purpose that serves the community. Don’t you think so? How far are we into the game when 99% of our time is consumed with how right we are for party affliance without understanding the ground sentiment on humanity sense. I guess that is why we need 1 malaysia & Malaysia First dictotomy.

  16. Perkasa would like to prove to the Chinese that they are not anti-chinese, however someone need to tell Ibrahim Ali, Ang Pow always in read packet. I don’t know to laugh or to feel sad. That’s how we have become as a nation. We are becoming very race insensitive.

  17. You are opening a Pandora’s Box sis, so is it OK to label among us kurang ajar for not knowing the customs of the other cultures which are different from ours? I refuse to believe that Ibrahim Ali did the white envelope deliberately, people do make mistakes but the kind intention is very clear, it is a gift celebrating the Chinese Yew Year. I think you are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill lah.

    We live in a multiracial multi-religious society, Its not easy in fact impossible to know the ins and outs of every one’s culture that includes MPs, Civil Servants, ordinary Malaysians etc. The reason why we can live in Malaysia in reasonable harmony except for that dreaded period in 1969 when we forgot who we are, is because we as a group of people are tolerant and forgiving.

    Lets go back to the tolerant and forgiving mode shall we.I hope Perkasa will still celebrate the Chinese New Year next year. I am sure they will give ang pow in a red colored envelope next time.

    1. Okay, good that you’re bringing this up, i.e. what level of sensitivity.

      Is the (unproven) accusation that Hindraf waved their flag during Maghrib at Jln Kebun a more kurang ajar act than Ibrahim’s (proven with photo). Or Hindraf supposedly kurang ajar for attending Pak Lah’s Raya open house?

      Just a cursory look at Malay blogosphere the last 3 months — how many times for how many things have the minority races been accused biadab?

      David Nga Kor Ming didn’t take off his shoes. At least in David’s case, keeping his shoes on is doubtless a breach of Malay custom but still unlike IA’s ‘die’ white envelope in terms of symbolic message conveyed.

      Secondly, IA’s was done in the full glare of publicity. Between friends in private settings, I’m sure many unintentional slips occur. But if they’re courting media attention & knowing well that their org. is already infamous & they still don’t observe or pretend they don’t know protocol …

  18. oh saya baru belajar sesuatu yang baru dalam berpuluh tahun hidup di malaysia. TQ helen for the info.
    But still i dont think its fair for you to quote
    “I suspect what Ibrahim did was calculated and timed to stoke racial unrest.”
    “Also choice of venue for the function. Kg Baru is closely linked to May 13.”

    if IA is stupid you should be at least give an education lesson something like a reminder or correction article about it, but seriously jumped to racial tension on purposed???

    This is like put a petrol in spark so that the fire will just burn up and destroy everything….well i guess HELEN really mad about it, then maybe this is good example that hindraf also should understand when you are trying to organize a ceramah make sure you dont become monkey at magrhib really insult the malay and what worse of it the organiser is malay.

    wait can i conclude like you HELEN

    “I suspect what HINDRAF and chegu bard did was calculated and timed to stoke racial unrest.”

    “Also choice of venuea and the time for the function. Jln kebun where it is 100% malay.”

    ish ish ish….scary world we have here…wonder is it correct to have majlis berbuka puasa in church and to make it better lets include song of praise that dont have any thing to do with puasa of islam.

    well we learn from mistake and adapt in out future life , anyway thank you for the info again.
    _____________________________________________________________________________

    Andi,

    Jln Kebun is not in the history books & we weren’t sure at first even whether it is in Shah Alam or Klang (it’s on the border). Kg Baru has always been symbolic of Malay public actions.

    Secondly, racial clashes hurt the minorities. The victims of Kg Medan were Indian & of May 13, Chinese. You don’t ever hear Chinese threatening the Malays with a repeat of May 13.

    So there’s less reason/logic for Hindraf to stoke racial tensions than for Perkasa to do the same.

    Helen

    1. Helen

      Jalan kebun has always been a100%malay majority place in the first place and there is no point for other races came there to make ceramah under their races flag rite.

      just because there is no mass killing in the history have been done there that does not mean you can simply came in to the place and disrespect those people right.

      FYI klang has alway been a high tension place for indian and malay so please dont judge tension can only be spark at certain place.

      1. Andi,

        I was under the impression that Kg Baru – where the Perkasa white-angpow function was held – is [also] a 100% Malay majority place. A Malay organization (Perkasa) booked the venue there & invited Chinese.

        At Jln Kebun, a Malay ‘organization’ (led by Haris & Chegubard, in a PKR DUN, in a PAS Parliamentary area & I was told venue arranged by the PAS MP) booked the dewan & invited Indians.

        See the parallel?

        So if you’re saying that (1) Indians coming into Jln Kebun is showing disrespect & (2) re: your 2nd paragraph — some kind of race riot might be ignited & (3) certain areas are “high tension” localities,

        then why pray tell did Perkasa invite Chinese to Kg Baru & show disrespect & create a racial issue by insulting another race’s custom?

  19. DAP nak ambil hati orang Melayu, bagi donation pada surau, pakai baju kurung, you melenting. You fitnah kata ini politik evangelist.

    PAS nak ambil hati bukan Melayu, terbuka sikit, you fitnah kata dah jadi PAS 2.0.

    Kalau parti dari PR nak ambil hati kaum yang bukan majoriti ahli nya, you kutuk. So what niat dia apa, diaorang kan politikus. Janji dia buat something which is politically correct & dapat mengeratkan perpaduan, that is fine by me.

    Politik ambil hati, you kutuk. Sekarang terima lah politik hina menghina dan menjatuhkan maruah, di bawa khas utk anda dari UMPorno. I have sympathy for the elderly for the insult, but no sympathy for you.

    Hullo, dia pakai kebaya pendek ala pelayan S’pore Airlines memberi tazkirah di ruang solat lelaki (nak derma, kirimlah aje cek).

    Lepas tu, diorang asyik memakai tudung. Nanti minta Perkasa pakai salib sajalah untuk ambil hati

    Ibrahim Ali anjurkan majlis CNY menghina adat & gelagat politikus ADU (Asal Dapat Undi) banyak persamaan, tidak ikhlas sebab tulah terpercik muka sendiri. — Helen

    1. Pakai kebaya pendek, salah, dalam surau pulak tue. Ok. Fine. Saya setuju.

      So bila pakai tudung pun salah juga?

      Ini satu ketaksuban. Apa ajer dia buat, tetap salah. Have you ever stop to listen to yourself one of these days?
      ______________________________________________________________________________

      Kalu gitu, Nizam nak pakai salib pun tak salah. Saya nak pakai ‘habit’ macam rahib Katholik pun tak salah. Ingat kepada niat. Kalau pakai sebagai tanda hormat masuk tempat ibadat okay. Kalau pakai hanya dengan niat memancing undi, keji. — Helen

      1. Helen, saya ikut logik anda sebijik2.

        “Kalu gitu, Nizam nak pakai salib pun tak salah.”.
        -Saya pakai salah atas dasar agama Islam melarang penganut dari memakai simbol agama lain.Tapi adakah salah di sisi agama pemakai tudung berkenaan? Apa isu nya sekarang ini? Apakah isu nya agama pemakai tudung berkenaan melarang?

        “Saya nak pakai ‘habit’ macam rahib Katholik pun tak salah.”
        -Tak menjadi masalah bagi saya. Kalau rasa nak buat, sila kan. Apa isu nya sekarang?

        “Kalau pakai sebagai tanda hormat masuk tempat ibadat okay. Kalau pakai hanya dengan niat memancing undi, keji. ”
        -Mula2 dia masuk tempat ibadat pakai kebaya ketat, you kutuk habis-habisan. Yang itu saya boleh sokong, patut dia tanya orang yang lebih tahu terlebih dahulu. Bila dah improve ke tudung, you kata tak ikhlas pula. Macam mana saya nak sokong kenyataan ini pula bila saya dah setuju kebaya ketat tak sesuai dlm kawasan masjid atau surau? Dia improve, saya sokong lah.

        Macam kata saya, have you try listening to yourself one of these days?

        1. Boleh tak Melayu mempercayai kesahihan tuduhan Hasan Ali bahawa pendakwah evangelis sanggup menyamar dengan berpakaian menyerupai Muslim?

          Kalau ikut logik Nizam, tidak salah memakai tudung/ketayap.

          ‘Dia’ tu bertekad menjalankan kempen Tahun Melawat Surau (selang beberapa hari selepas insiden kebaya ketat itu, pergi surau lagi. Kemudian satu lagi episod dengan kemeja-T ketat untuk bersenamrobik di perkaranagan masjid (gambar dipaparkan di muka depan Utusan).

          Dah lah Sultan sebagai ketua agama murka, sampai JAIS/MAIS terpaksa mengeluarkan perintah larangan supaya yang hidung tak mancung pipi tersorong-sorong itu tidak akan masuk masjid lagi.

          Lebih 50 tahun Wanita MCA, Gerakan dan yang lain-lain berpolitik tetapi tidak pernah membuat hal.

      2. Helen,

        You masih tak jawab soalan saya.

        Saya jawab persoalan anda secara direct. Pakai ketayap tak salah. Menyebarkan agama lain pada orang Islam salah di sisi undang-undang.

        Jelas?

        Ini negara demokrasi. Dia seorang ahli aktif dalam sistem ini. Dan di antara ciri-ciri seorang politikus adalah mencari sebyk mungkin undi. Dibenarkan oleh undang-undang.

        Jadi seorang tokoh politik dalam sebuah parti berdaftar yg cuba mencari sebyk mungkin sokongan dan undi, salah dari segi apa? Dari segi moral? Dari segi undang-undang? Dia pakai tudung menghina siapa? Adat Melayu mana yang terhina kalau bukan Islam pakai tudung?

        Di Brunei, negara yang mengamalkan konsep Melayu Islam Beraja dan satu-satu nya monarki Melayu mutlak di dunia ini, pelajar bukan Islam kena pakai tudung di sekolah.

        You masih berada di Malaysia? Ataupun sekarang berada di salah sebuah negara komunis?

        1. Dia disiasat MAIS kerana memakai baju ketat dan tidak menutup aurat semasa menyertai program senamrobik di masjid (Dis 2010).

          Kalau seseorang itu disiasat pihak berkuasa, mesti ada bersabit sesuatu undang-undang berkenaan dengan salah laku.

          Sebelum itu (Ogos 2010), MAIS telah memberikannya surat amaran melarangnya masuk masjid serta diwajibkan meminta izin terlebih dahulu daripada MAIS sebelum membuat lawatan-lawatan lain ke masjid.

          Mengingkari pihak berkuasa masjid merupakan satu kesalahan syariah di bawah Bahagian III, Seksyen 9, Akta Kesalahan Jenayah Syariah (Wilayah-wilayah Persekutuan 1997). Saya tidak ada rujukan undang-undang syariah S’gor tetapi saya menjangka ianya lebih kurang sama peruntukan yang ada.

  20. DAP nak ambil hati orang Melayu, bagi donation pada surau, pakai baju kurung, you melenting. You fitnah kata ini politik evangelist.

    PAS nak ambil hati bukan Melayu, terbuka sikit, you fitnah kata dah jadi PAS 2.0.

    Kalau parti dari PR nak ambil hati kaum yang bukan majoriti ahli nya, you kutuk. So what niat dia apa, diaorang kan politikus. Janji dia buat something which is politically correct & dapat mengeratkan perpaduan, that is fine by me. Dia mengharap undi dan sokongan, biasa la. Politikus mana yang tak mengharapkan undi dan sokongan?

    Politik ambil hati, you kutuk. Sekarang terima lah politik hina menghina dan menjatuhkan maruah, di bawa khas utk anda dari UMPorno. I have sympathy for the elderly for the insult, but no sympathy for you.

    1. Nizam kata: “So what niat dia apa, diaorang kan politikus”.

      Bagi saya, nawaitu hati mustahak. Ikut falsafah Buddha, niat betul, kelakuan/perbuatan akan betul.

      Politikus yang hanya berniat memancing undi dan sanggup malakukan apa saja untuk menang, maka titik-tolak / punca yang mendorong tindakannya sudah tak betul.

      Kalau tersilap laku tetapi niat asal murni, boleh dimaafkan.

      Tapi politikus yang bertalam dua muka, asal hasratnya tercapai (the ends justify the means) tidak harus diberi ruang.

  21. Kalau mengikut standard Nik Aziz punya jawaban , lebih kurang begini bunyi…

    Apahal nak marahkan Ibrahim Ali? Dia bukan orang Cina. Mana dia paham budaya orang Cina? Jangan marahkan dia.

    Yang patut dimarahi kenapa segelintir kaum Cina ( Malasyaian ke..?)nak mengapi-apikan benda baik yang Ibrahim Ali buat?

    Bukankah Ibrahim Ali menolong orang2 tua? Bukan kah Ibrahim ALi berhati mulia memberikan sedekah duit kepada orang tua Cina?

    1. Benar apa yang Dzulkifli kata.

      Teringat saya kepada peristiwa penjawat awam dihadiahkan penyapu oleh Khir Toyo di depan khalayak ramai. Terpegun kot.

      Ah Soh-Ah Soh tersebut rasa-rasanya penghuni Rumah Warga Tua (dikatakan di Cheras). Bila diwawancara mKini, sesetengah mereka nampaknya tidak mengenali pun IA itu siapa. Ataupun mungkin mereka buta huruf (bagi generasi lama Cina, bukan semua anak perempuan dihantar ke sekolah).

      Nyata kalau golongan orang tua itu tidak dibawa ke majlis, orang Cina yang lain tidak akan hadir dengan sukarela.

    2. Yang hairannya, menggapa “tokoh tokoh cina ” yang ada di situ ketika itu mendiamkan diri bila angpau PUTIH
      dikeluarkan????????????????????????
      Hai sandiwara , sandiwara murahan….

  22. PERKASA should not insult other races for his own political benefits
    On January 30, 2012, in MCA Youth Edu Bureau, Statements & Commentaries

    30 January 2012

    Press Statement by MCA Youth Secretary-General Dato’ Chai Kim Sen

    PERKASA should not insult other races for his own political benefits

    The actions of Pribumi Perkasa Negara (PERKASA) Dato’ Ibrahim Ali in giving out money in white envelopes during their Chinese New Year open house is disrespectful against Chinese culture and its customs. There should be zero tolerance against any extremist statements or actions by any organization and should be dealt with immediately.

    Malaysia is a multiracial country. We must work to ensure that our country practices the policy of inclusiveness, where all races are able to participate and share in the nation’s development and construction. However, certain organizations have made extremist statements which are completely ignorant of the sensitivities of the Chinese community.

    Dato’ Ibrahim Ali, being a Member of Parliament, should act in the people’s interests and understand our multicultural society, and the taboos and prohibitions of each ethnicity and religion of his constituents whom he is supposed to represent.

    It is unacceptable to merely profess ignorance as an excuse. If he had chosen to appreciate our country’s cultural diversity, then he would have known that white ‘ang pows’ are meant for funerals while red ‘ang pows’ are given during weddings and joyous celebrations.

    This is not the first time PERKASA and its president, Ibrahim Ali, has insulted the other races of Malaysia. They have undermined ethnic relations instead of helping to strengthen and foster it, and their actions are liable to provoke the emotions of others.

    As the year 2020 looms into view, Malaysia must implement the practice of moderate policies and equality so as to obtain the support of all races and ethnicities in order to achieve the nation’s goals. Actions such as those of Ibrahim Ali however, undermine the concept of a moderate Malaysia in exchange for his own political gain.

    Dato’ Chai Kim Sen
    MCA Youth Secretary-General

    1. Mr shuzheng, a time for what to stand??????,talk about death are you ready for it, all for the color of a packet.

      Words are easy to say ,but very hard to follow.

      Especially STUPID CLOWN like you who have an ERECTION problem in trying to make it stand,

      I suggest to do in in your home first, after your ”sotong” can “stand” then take it out for a walk,

      one of two things may happen.

      Helen, When shit goes Wrong ALL suffer

    2. If you wanna see a real chinese chauvanist, read shuzheng’s bllog. That person probably think the chinese fart don’t stink

      Not the Dap. Hell even shuzheng bashes the Dap for not being ultra-chinese. the irony is his choice is the Mca, the well known coolie of Umno.

      I read Shuzheng’s blog. He bashes DAP because the party is “deceitful” & “duplicitous”. I agree with him. So do many, many Umno bloggers. Many Hindraf guys, MCA guys, Gerakan guys & ex-Pakatan guys have also highlighted DAP’s deceit & duplicity. Read Lim Boo Chang’s blog. — Helen

  23. Perkasa is not a political party, just NGO, berdaftar atau tidak saya tak tahu. I think he meant well, and just wants to boost Perkasa image as non hardcore racist. It went wrong and backfired, just out of ignorance. The Chinese are right to get angry.
    But I also saw a DAP rep in a Malay house with shoes on. Did he mean well, or just wants to spit on his host’s face? I think he meant well, but was just ignorant. No rep will want to antagonize his voter.
    Angry? okay lah, but don’t get overboard. We have to tolerate other’s ignorance at times.

    Ya Allah, lindungi kami dari kepimpinan mereka yang jahil.

    1. Adakah mengambil sampul itu menunjukkan sopan santun si penerima atau kebiadaban si pemberi?

      Ingat lagi tak Khir Toyo menghadiahkan penyapu? Pegawai-pegawai yang dihadiahkan penyapu itu pasti tergamam tetapi apakan daya. Khir berpangkat tinggi dan itu ketika upacara rasmi kerajaan negeri.

      Cuba bandingkan darjat di antara Ibrahim Ali dengan tetamu-tetamunya. Ataupun sudahkah pangkat ‘Datuk’ itu tidak bernilai lagi?

      Adakah kanak-kanak terencat akal tahu menolak sampul itu? Apa boleh penghuni rumah orang tua buat walaupun terkilan? Mereka tua dan uzur — kalau memberontak, mereka boleh berjalan kaki balik ke Cheras dari Kg Baru ke?

      They are vulnerable people which is what makes Ibrahim Ali’s offence so much worse & what makes Chinese angry — that the most vulnerable segment (old people who may not have families) were made the victims.

      He abused his strong (relatively better off) position to bully & humiliate the weak. Typical of a bully — dare not pick on someone his own size. Would Ibrahim Ali dare to give a white angpow to a Chinese Tan Sri who’s a rich tycoon, like Vincent Tan?
