They want to ubah E-V-E-R-Y thing … but be careful, jangan sampai rentung

Malay Mail assistant news editor, Boo Su-lyn, is unhappy that bahasa Melayu as our national language is – according to her – making the country seem more ‘Tanah Melayu’ than Malaysia.

She wrote in her Sept 25 column headlined ‘Hapuskan SJKC? Introduce English-medium schools first‘:

“[Bahasa kebangsaan/Melayu] has divided us. It entrenches the Malay identity instead of making us feel more ‘Malaysian.’

“Amid the constant refrain for Malay rights, Malay as the national language makes the country seem more ‘Tanah Melayu’ than Malaysia.”

Ms Boo insisted we should “use English instead of Malay as the medium of instruction at national schools”.

She also asked, “why do we need a national language in the first place?” and alleged that BM “has failed miserably” in its purpose as a national language to unite Malaysians.

They’re asking why we need to restrict Christian proselytization

Earlier Boo had courted controversy and police reports when she advocated that Article 11(4) of the Federal Constitution be abolished.

11(4)  State law and in respect of the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and Putrajaya, federal law may control or restrict the propagation of any religious doctrine or belief among persons
professing the religion of Islam.

See ‘Malay Mail Online tarik balik artikel hina Islam‘ (Ismaweb, 7 Oct 2015)

Boo’s Oct 2 column (below) has since been taken down by the Malay Mail.

Nonetheless a web cache of it can be accessed @

Abolish Article 11 4


Her Oct 7 Facebook entry seems to have been withdrawn as well but a screenshot of it (see below) was taken by Muafakat sec-gen A. Karim Omar for his blog article the same day — ‘Jahatnya Boo Su-Lyn dan Malay Mail Online ke atas Islam‘.

Of her paper’s “apology and retraction”, Boo had responded with the nonchalant remark, “Make of it what you will”.

Wanna burn everything to ashes?

Ben Yaacob made the following criticism, “Boo Su-Lyn bukan hanya bermain dengan api. Dia telah cuba menghasut sehingga perkara-perkara mengenai Islam di dalam Perlembagaan menjadi hapus rentung.”

See ‘Padam api dengan air liur menteri‘ (, 5 Oct 2015)

According to Ismaweb, Boo had also asked Article 10(4) – which relates to sensitive topics protected from public challenge – to be abolished.

Article 10(4) reads,

“In imposing restrictions in the interest of the security of the Federation or any part thereof or public order under paragraph (a) of Clause (2), parliament may pass law prohibiting the questioning of any  matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of part III,  Article 152, 153 or 181 otherwise than in relation to the implementation thereof  as may be specified in such law.”

Asking to do away with the protective and prescriptive Articles is tantamount to knocking at the foundation of what makes Malaysia a Muslim country.

It needs to be understood that Article 3 of the Federal Constitution, i.e. “Islam is the religion of the Federation”, means we are a Muslim country.

A number of “secular”-minded opposition supporters appear to have a problem with this.

Kevin Morais’ murder: A case of he says, she says

The Dapster family mafia is now insinuating the foollowing —

“Malaysia seemed to have become the ‘land of shocking statutory declarations’ and Malaysians are reminded eerily of the previous statutory declarations by private investigator PI Bala in connection with the murder of Mongolian Altantunya Shaariibuu,” said Lim Kit Siang.

Scissors salad & the super sneaky

Is there any good reason for Wong Chun Wai’s face to be plonked on page 2 of the J-Star? See below recently on Sunday.

Why is MCA allowing Chun Wai to use their newspaper to promote himself personally?
