Malaysian Political and Social Concerns..

[The following is a blog request submitted to me by a concerned citizen, and I wanted to address these concerns..]
Dear Lynn,  After 57 years under the same party, where absolute power corrupts, and playing racial & religion issues to divide and rule, Malaysia is the only country that practices unofficially “Apartheid” system where the majority (Malays) have special benefits/advantages in education, loans, housing, public jobs etc

As such, my country is heading toward a failed state:
  • mounting national debts – scandals, abuses, corruptions
  • currency (ringgit) free-fall  - loss of confidence by investors
  • main source of revenue shrinking – oil price plunges
  • brain-drain (about 1 million Malaysians abroad)
  • illicit financial outflows (5th in world ranking)
  • multi-racial society at the most fragile point
  • govt critics charged/prisoned/intimidated/persecuted
  • both govt and opposition parties are on the verge of imploding with power struggle within


A coalition of NGOs (BERSIH = meaning clean in English) has demand the resignation of Prime Minister (who was the Defence Minister when that Mongolian was C4-ed) who is behind the latest financial scandal involving RM42 billion (USD 99M). 

It has encouraged right-minded Malaysians to take to the streets on 29th-30th August,
  • despite the assembly being declared illegal by the police,
  • water cannons, tear gas at disposal to use on the public (like in previous demonstrations)
  • trouble-makers expected
  • and for the first time, police will be armed with taser guns

All of this being done to put fear to discourage Malaysians from attending.

Q. Do you see violence, tear gas, water cannons and arrests  on 29th-30th August?
Najib Tun Razak, current PM under pressure to resign
(from within his party and Opposition)
A.  I do see this.  I see that people in your country have had enough, and many are willing to step forward to try to gain some exposure.  They want to be seen and heard even at the cost of arrest or injury.  There is a lot of fear being spread, but somehow many people just don't care.  I hear that many view it as a "life or injury" situation and not a "life and death" because killing people would not be taken lightly if it were to get into the news.  They are willing to take the risk of "injury" at hopes of evoking change, and gaining support regarding these serious issues you outlined. 

Q. Will there be a change of government: like Opposition (called Pakatan) taking over or Unity Govt  between dissidents in  the govt and opposition MPs?  
A.  Change looks difficult.  The corruption of the government looks like figures of a hand reaching out into different branches.  Even changing over the PM isn't the end of the corruption because it extends very deep BUT it is a start, and not impossible.  Changes looks to be coming, just not as fast as people want... I want to say within the next 12 to 18 months.  When I tune in a little more, I get that once a new PM is in office, the people feel to get some relief, but it comes in small waves.

Q. How do you see the future for Malaysia and Malaysians?

A.  When I tune into these people and the energy around them, I see the best chance for Malaysia to gain a shift of power and also receive some political relief is to support Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.  He looks to have the ability to stand up to the current political powers, and undo much of what has been done to the people and slowly (this will be a process) undo much of the corruption.  He understands that strength comes from the unity of people and not the division.  It is hard to face problems of the world, when as a country you are so divided.

[Additional Notes from the Submitter:  
As of today, HSBC Bank in Hong Kong has suspended dealing with Malaysian (Ringgit) currency exchange, a very bad indication of loss of confidence in Malaysian economy. And with volatile September approaching, I’m afraid of a Malaysian Spring uprising during Autumn. And this may turn ugly to racial violence, where the non-Malays could be targeted, like it happened in May 13th 1969. T

The 13 May 1969 incident refers to the Sino-Malay sectarian violence in Kuala Lumpur (then part of the state of Selangor),Malaysia, in which many Malaysians lost their lives. Officially the number of deaths was played down, but Western diplomatic sources at the time put the toll at close to 600, with most of the victims Chinese]

And that is all I have for this reading.  Thank you.  Love and light-

NOTE:  For some of you it looks like the photos are being blocked... I am including a screen shot and hoping that it gets embedded in a way that they come across... Here it is...

Thank you, Lynn, for this reading.

Yes, you’re right about Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. He is the only one that can unite the people who have been divided for too long along racial line. He is the only one that both govt and opposition supporters can accept as Prime Minister.

But he will have an uphill task as you have rightly said that corruption extends very deep – Police, Judiciary, Election Commission, MACC (anti-corruption) etc

As of the latest:
- The military will intervene in the Bersih 4 rally this weekend if the government declares a state of emergency, Malaysian Armed Forces chief Gen Zulkifeli Mohd Zin said today.
- the Opposition has offered to help dissidents from Govt MPs to secure a new majority to topple Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's government if certain conditions are fulfilled, which includes freeing jailed Opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim.
- the anti-Bersih group has decided to cancel their showdown with Bersih rally
- US & German embassy will be observers during Bersih rally.
- the police won’t be using taser guns

Lynn, when do you see the current Prime Minister stepping down?
When you said that changes will be within the next 12 to 18 months, does it mean that the current Prime Minister will not be stepping down this year? Or are you referring to the changes that will be carried out within the next 12 to 18 months by the new Prime Minister, which we hope will be soon for the country’s sake. The next General Election will be on or before 24th August 2018.

Again, you’re right about my people have had enough and many of them will be attending such rally for the first time. I hope that they won’t let the fear tactics to change their mind. Many felt that enough is enough! And Malaysians abroad will demonstrate simultaneously across the globe in support of their fellowmen back home.

Day 1 before the rally,

- provocative blood-letting flyers are found which depicted a man about to perform a decapitation - The words 'Cina turun Bersih, sedialah bermandi darah (Get ready to bathe in blood if the Chinese come for the Bersih rally) are printed on the posters.

- according to a poll, support for Bersih 4 appears to be split along racial lines.

- Global Bersih has condemned Govt alleged attempt to scuttle Bersih rallies in more than 70 cities overseas by issuing threats to revoke the scholarship of participants if they are government-sponsored Malaysian students.

Lynn, do you see racial clashes rear its ugly head again or is it buried and gone with the young generation?

Will the ringgit continue to fall despite the National Bank intervention of selling dollars and buying ringgit since June in an attempt to stem the ringgit's slide?

Thank you very much, Lynn, for your time and effort

It has been safe so far *touch wood and hope for the best*. Nobody is that powerful. The corrupted top ppl have corrupted middle and low mgmt. Everyone has to work their part to clean up the country.
