It was reported that some 600 of SPM leavers have been ‘detected’ to be unable to speak Bahasa Malaysia while thousands more remain undetected because they are not being called for National Service Programme. I would be making a bad joke if I said that the news was taken by surprised by all Malaysians. Nobody is surprised, seriously.
Still, I have some questions on these ‘unMalaysian’ kids:
The first question that came into mind mind is that “How did they pass their SPM?”
The second question is “Who is to blame?”
The third question is the most tricky: “What do we do about them?”
The news proved that Malaysia is already at a chronic state. Malaysians are lost and everybody is finding their own way and having different dreams for the country. We don’t move and act like a nation, we go our separate ways as according to race and religion and even, ideologies. Most of us refused to acknowledge the uniqueness of being Malaysians and are trying hard to be Singaporeans, Taiwanese, Americans and Arabs.
No matter who or what we try to be, there is no excuse for not being able to speak the national language. If you cannot speak the national language then by all means, you deserved to be called a “Pendatang”.
No Malaysian citizen should have the guts to tell people that they cannot speak a single word of Bahasa Melayu and claimed to be Malaysians, what more a Bangsa Malaysia.
A Bangladeshi can pick up B.Malaysia in maybe, less than a month and a Nepalese might take a little more time as they do not mix around with the locals so much. However, they will eventually learn some of the language because B.Malaysia is one of the easiest languages to learn. Even a difficult language like French too, could be learned and mastered in just months by average persons.
Therefore, pardon me for saying that one must be VERY-VERY DUMB to have been born and raised in Malaysia all his life, but still not able to speak Bahasa Malaysia. Imagine these dumb ‘pendatangs’ getting employments that should be reserved for able, qualified Malaysians...
Now, do you understand why some quarters are pushing for Mandarin to be acknowledged and given special ‘position’ in the country?
These people need Mandarin to be used widely in order to accommodate their dumb kids who cannot speak B.Malaysia or English. Be informed that they are not fighting for equal chances or fair competition but are actually fighting for the survival of the dumb. They are using their economic power to ensure that their dumb kids are able to get jobs and climb high while stepping on the more capable lower level employees from other races to do the jobs for them.
There is no doubt that these ‘pendatangs’ are the products of Vernacular Schools that is being championed by Dong Zong in the name of Chinese Education a.k.a Mandarin.
Well, now we can all see the truth that Dong Zong’s Chinese Education craps has failed miserably. Instead of producing smart Malaysians, it only produced dumb, arrogant Pendatangs.
Being a failure, Dong Zong has no rights to demand anything from the government. In fact, Dong Zong does not have the right to even exist any longer. The longer the organization stays, the more dumb arrogant pendatangs it will produce and the more good, qualified, true Malaysians will be denied opportunities.
