Remember him? 

So. What do you wanna be when you grow up?

It’s now all quiet on the virtue signaling front …

The pro-Rohingya Twitterati have moved on, presently lending their most virtuous voices to other stateless individuals under our media’s 15 minutes spotlight.

Even though Malaysian virtue signallers have the attention span of a goldfish, Bangladesh police – who possess longer memory – have noted an uptrend in Rohingya crime.

At a record high in the Cox’s Bazar sprawling camps are criminal demands for ransom — see Utusan tweet above.

The Malay newspaper-of-note yesterday reported that Rohingya are increasingly involved in the crimes of murder, kidnapping, extortion, drug smuggling and sexual assault.

See ‘Jenayah libatkan pelarian Rohingya meningkat di Bangladesh’ in Utusan online on 17 Jan 2022.

Rohingya refugees are also used as drug mules and pawns of human traffickers, according to Bangladesh police stats.

Two weeks ago, an op-ed in Sinar Harian titled ‘Kenapa Rohingya mahu ke Malaysia dan Indonesia sahaja?’ said there are 200,000 of them registered in our country.

But what about the Rohingya in Malaysia who are undocumented? How many these?

In the Bangladesh refugee camps, more than half the Rohingya are children.

Rohingya women have a higher birth rate than Bangladeshi women. There is no reason to suppose their fertility to be any different in Malaysia.

Rohingya babies are being born daily to stateless parents. They’re becoming a substantial population segment here too.

Adverse impact of Rohingya on host community

Bangladeshis feel they’re being made to pay a heavy price – see above – because of the Rohingya who are never going to go away.

In Cox’s Bazar, “the locals knew not what troubles awaited them”, reported the Dhaka Tribune on 25 Apr 2020.

The newspaper also quoted Cox’s Bazar Civil Societies Forum president Fazlul Kader as saying the Rohingya have “become a burden”.

Malaysia’s virtuous Twitterati chirping their compassion for aggressive Rohingya children are like a caravan that moves on.

Communities hosting the Rohingya, however, are stuck indefinitely with the uninvited ‘guests’ in their midst.

“The Rohingya refugees and the adversely impacted host communities are stuck in limbo without knowing what will happen to them,” said researchers Anas Ansar and Abu Faisal Md Khalid.

Local sentiments began to shift starting mid-November 2018, they wrote in their article ‘From solidarity to resistance: host communities’ evolving response to the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh’.

“At this stage, the host community started to prepare for a long haul against the backdrop of a failed repatriation attempt. In this phase, solidarity gradually burnt out, and strong resentment became widespread,” said Anas and Abu Faisal in the Journal of International Humanitarian Action (July 2021).

Citing related fieldwork, Anas and Abu Faisal quoted that “since the last arrival of refugees in 2017, perceptible solidarity and support for the refugees faded away, and resentment against both refugees and humanitarian aid agencies, particularly among the impoverished local population in Cox’s Bazar district, is evident” (Khan 2018).

Mahathir’s blood-and-soil argument

Mahathir said that the residents of Bukit Malut are not Rohingya but Kedah Malays.

One group of Malays are said to have merantau up north circa 1865, even reaching to as far as southern Burma.

Mahathir said these olden Malay travellers (seafarers) have lately returned from Myanmar to Bukit Malut, Langkawi — see his tweet below. Continue reading “Mahathir’s blood-and-soil argument”

M’sians already raising white flag or suiciding but still accused of “hate, xenophobia and racism”

Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin said: “In ten years, there will be millions of them [Rohingya] here, is that fair?”

Speaking to Channel News Asia (CNA), Hamzah added: “I don’t think it’s fair to our own country”. Continue reading “M’sians already raising white flag or suiciding but still accused of “hate, xenophobia and racism””

They want Rohingya to be absorbed and allowed work here

The Agora Society wants Malaysia to be appreciated as “a land of diversity” and therefore to integrate Rohingya into our local communities.

Agora Society is “a loose network of (mostly CHINESE) individuals who (claim they) believe in the principles of democracy and good governance”. Continue reading “They want Rohingya to be absorbed and allowed work here”

Oh dear, what’s Hamzah Zainudin gonna do?

You know what they say about being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

On the left of the Home Minister is the DAP preaching “kindness” to the Rohingya.

On his right is the legacy media convinced that it’s impossible for Rohingya to be repatriated.

Chinese posturing as kindest and most Rohingya-caring

Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin said yesterday it is arrogant of refugees (Rohingya) to go around declaring “I have a UNHCR card”.

“Take for example someone who is given the UNHCR card for a three-year period. What happens when the three-year period is up?” Hamzah was quoted as saying by the NST.

BELOW: It’s raining UNHCR cards on Rohingya

Bangladesh’s biggest ever drug bust just happened in Cox’s Bazar

The four suspects (below) were detained by Thai authorities last month for investigation into drug smuggling.

I blogged about this on Feb 22 saying they don’t look Malaysian to me although they’d claimed to be.

A latest news story about a two-kilogram ‘ice’ haul in Cox’s Bazar should set you thinking because yet another Rohingya boat is trying to reach Malaysia (story later in my next blog post). Continue reading “Bangladesh’s biggest ever drug bust just happened in Cox’s Bazar”

Muhyiddin slammed by NGO over Rohingya policy

There will be an increase in the number of Rohingya boat people coming to Malaysia, warned Zafar Ahmad Abdul Ghani.

Zafar, who is president of the Myanmar Ethnic Rohingya Human Rights Organization Malaysia, said in a press statement yesterday that this bigger impact on Malaysia is only to be expected following the Feb 1 military coup.

And indeed the news about the latest Malaysia-bound Rohingya boat is its rescue yesterday by India’s coast guard. Continue reading “Muhyiddin slammed by NGO over Rohingya policy”

Sinchew digging ‘pendatang’ hole ever deeper

I mentioned that the Sin Chew editorial published yesterday was worth reading, mainly because it had Rohingya and Vietnamese boat people on its radar.

Regular readers of my blog would, of course, be aware that I’ve been covering Rohingya extensively and I’ve also brought up the topic that Vietnamese boat people were actually ethnic Chinese. Continue reading “Sinchew digging ‘pendatang’ hole ever deeper”

Bad idea to bring in so much foreign cheap labour

In the first part of last year, a quarter of our coronavirus cases were non Malaysians — see pie chart below (segment in red). 

The figures are sourced from a 17 Nov 2020 research paper in The Lancet titled ‘Clinical characteristics and risk factors for severe Covid-19 infections in Malaysia: A nationwide observational study’.

‘Hidup bertuankan tauke Bangla, Rohingya’ was the news headline yesterday in Sinar Harian. 

The op-ed article said Bangladeshi and Rohingya market wholesalers are “warga asing [yang] begitu berani mengambil kesempatan”.

Actually Bangla and Rohingya are puak serumpun, as will be explained shortly. Continue reading “Malays now finding out about tauke Rohingya”

Rohingya coming here are ‘economic migrants’, not refugees (UPDATED w Part 2)

Continuing Part Two, uploaded on Oct 23 

Has the passage of time cleared up confusion in the United Nations as to whether the world body supports or still objects to repatriating the Rohingya?

ON THE ONE HAND — Bangladesh is thrilled to hear fresh assurances from Myanmar that the latter country is prepared to take back the Rohingya refugees. This is the latest news reported today (see below) on the sidelines of an international donation campaign that raised US$600 million to help the Rohingya in the Cox’s Bazar camps.

BELOW: Beijing is the facilitator of a trilateral initiative involving China, Bangladesh and Myanmar to be commenced after Myanmar concludes its general election on Nov 8

ON THE OTHER HAND — the UN was previously pissed at India for deporting seven illegal Rohingya back to Myanmar. Continue reading “Rohingya coming here are ‘economic migrants’, not refugees (UPDATED w Part 2)”

Why we need a strong government

A strong prime minister, strong defence minister, strong foreign minister and strong home minister will firmly put their foot down. They will tell the interfering activists (who are lying to the world that Malaysians are “cruel” and “inhumane”) to sod off. 

A strong government will protect the sovereignty of Malaysian territorial waters and in the South China Sea. A strong government will back up our security agencies — scroll down and see point No.5 below. Continue reading “Why we need a strong government”

“Stop using lockdown as your primary control method” — World Health Organization

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” said Dr David Nabarro, the WHO special envoy on Covid-19.

“The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it,” said Dr Nabarro (pix below) who is also Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General.

Bukan masa untuk menghasut “dengan membangkang dari longkang” — Najib

Teguran mantan Perdana Menteri Najib Razak terhadap Ahli Parlimen DAP Batu Kawan yang seolah-olah menyanggah usaha kerajaan untuk mengawal sempadan negara, adalah tepat mengena.

Hanya dua orang PATI yang positif Covid sahaja sudah mampu menyebabkan ribuan orang dijangkit, kata Najib. Justeru itu, sekarang “bukan masa untuk Pakatan Harapan menghasut rakyat dengan membangkang dari longkang”, tambah beliau lagi.

Why do the Christians want us to be stuck forever with more and more Rohingya?

I’ve been following closely the development of Rohingya issue and I find it is the Christians who are at the forefront of promoting their illegal stay here.

These critical Christians voices have their sympathetic megaphone in Malaysiakini through which to bash our government’s handling of the PATI issue, ref. the coverage provided to DAP born again Christian Heidy Quah by that anti-establishment news portal.

And it is Malaysiakini bullhorn which amplifies those virtue signalers (who believe themselves to be morally superior) that are constantly condemning Malaysians to the world as “inhumane”, “cruel”, “xenophobic” and “racist”.

Search & Rescue — Bazir sumber negara, susahkan orang M’sia

Malaysia terpaksa melancarkan Ops Mencari & Menyelamat susulan khabar bahawa Rohingya sengaja terjun ke laut. Rujuk ‘Rohingya boat people fake drowning’.

Namun dakwaan yang dibuat oleh si ‘decoy’ bergelar Nor Hossain (umur 27 tahun) – bahawa rakan-rakan sekapalnya dikhuatiri lemas – adalah berupa helah semata-mata, yakni satu taktik untuk mengaburi pegawai penguatkuasa maritim kita.

Rohingya: Tidak dirotan; akan dibenarkan tinggal di M’sia

NGO hak asasi yang bergelar Amnesty International itu kuat meroyan — tuduh negara kita bukan main kejam apatah telah merancang untuk membelasah (”viciously beat”) tahanan Rohingya.

Sebuah lagi badan penyibuk Barat iaitu Human Rights Watch (HRW) berkata Malaysia sebenarnya ‘mendera’ Rohingya andaikata melaksanakan hukuman ke atas mereka mengikut undang-undang kita, yakni “three strokes of the cane – a brutal punishment that constitutes torture under international human rights law”.
