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”
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”
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”
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’.

Myanmar, now under martial law, will not be able to overturn the coup, according to a confidential assessment by the British Foreign Office (see below). Continue reading “Back to the Motherland”
‘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”
News of Aung San Suu Kyi’s arrest had spread quickly through the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh.
“If the camp authorities had allowed it, you would have seen thousands of Rohingya out on celebration marches,” one refugee in the Nayapara camp Mirza Ghalib told AFP. Continue reading “Rohingya cheer the arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi”
What does the Myanmar coup d’etat mean for Malaysia?
It means that not only does our Foreign Minister make the appropriate diplomatic noises but our Home Minister as well as Defence Minister are left holding the Rohingya baby. Continue reading “What Myanmar coup d’etat means for Malaysia”
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.

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)”
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”
“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.

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. Continue reading “Bukan masa untuk menghasut “dengan membangkang dari longkang” — Najib”
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”. Continue reading “Why do the Christians want us to be stuck forever with more and more Rohingya?”
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.

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”.

Dong Zong nekad untuk menangani masalah xenofobia dan rasisme di negara kita menerusi kempen mereka yang bertajuk ‘Menyalur Kasih Sayang Menjelang Wabak Covid-19’.
Pertubuhan aktivis Cina tersebut juga prihatin terhadap kejadian cyberbullying di mana “kenyataan kebencian dibuat” (# stop hate speech) kini berupa suatu gejala yang sedang berleluasa di media sosial.

Malaysians voiced the most negative opinions on immigrants in a recent international survey conducted in conjunction with World Refugee Day 2020 — see bar charts below.
82 percent Malaysians agreed “We must close our borders to refugees entirely – we can’t accept any at this time”.
75 percent Malaysians agreed “Most foreigners who want to get into my country as a refugee really aren’t refugees. They just want to come here for economic reasons, or to take advantage of our welfare services“.

In Bangladesh, yaba – which is a low grade methamphetamine or meth sold in pill form – is the popular illicit drug.
“Rakhine state has become a kind of drug highway towards South Asia, especially Bangladesh,” the International Crisis Group’s expert on Myanmar, Richard Horsey was quoted by DW as saying. Continue reading “More dangerous problems from the Rohingya”
A Reuters story titled ‘Rohingya targeted as coronavirus stokes xenophobia in M’sia’ hit the wire today and was picked up by newspapers, digital media and Internet news aggregators around the world.
We’re being called “ugly Malaysians”, “xenophobic”, “racist”, “inhumane” and a host of other nasty names. Continue reading “It’s Raya and M’sians are being badmouthed round the globe”
