Malaysia is never tired of solving racist problem. It would be endless unless all non-Malays migrate to other countries. It is now the 3rd week of Ramadhan fasting month of Muslims. They are not allowed to eat after 5am+ until around 7.30pm. It would be like 14 hours without food and drink. OK, this would not kill as they can eat like as though they never ate for 10 hours continuously until the next 5am+. Can you believe a headmaster of a school telling off his students not to eat openly during fasting month and ask them to go back to China? Hey, this is a sensitive issue to races in Malaysia. We could understand that you are hungry as you cannot eat. Maybe you have the habit to drink morning tea after breakfast, after an hour here comes lunch then high-tea break in afternoon, it is understandable. But...what do you mean by asking the Chinese students to go back to China? Hello, we are possessing MyKad and born in Malaysia not CHINA. Are you out of your mind? If you do have the stamina to follow your God's instructions, you would not be affected when there are people eating in front of you.  Agree?

Do you think chasing the Chinese students to Foon Yew High School could solve your problem? And do you know that there are Malay students in FYHS too? So, are you going to claim them as betrayers or whatsoever? We Buhhists wearing the prayers rope on ours wrists and necks then you said we look like dogs with chains, fine. That shows how childish and prudent you are. Can't you just filter before talking and don't let us know your EQ's level? People with higher position are normally the ones who create hassle and havoc everywhere. We commoners live peacefully and nobody scolds us eating during fasting month. There are few  Muslim vendors selling food at the food court too. They are so friendly and nice. But for you the-one-with-low-EQ, you are expecting the whole country to fast with you? Then pregnant women, women on period, old people, child, sick people and whoever you allow for not fasting should be on fast too. Deal? Besides that, you should allow our temples to use speakers too while doing prayers, deal? I do believe my God could hear me but somehow I would prefer if I could speak it out louder. May I? 

Please speak something relevant and rationally. Show others you are an educated and civilized person. Don't always provoke us when everything is going peacefully. Don't create something unnecessary. Don't lah always make me angry to write a long post to vent my anger. =.= We are all human, all of a kind. RESPECTS!

Datuk Paul Low
Transparency International Malaysia president answers...

How successful has Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M) been in helping to mitigate corruption and other malpractices in the country? Bulbir Singh, Seremban
Success in helping the country to mitigate corruption can be considered in two ways. The first is bringing into awareness the level of corruption to society as well as to leaders. TI-M does this very well through the annual publication of the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) that gives individual scoring to 180 nations assessed. To date, the Najib administration has taken the fight against corruption as one of the National Key Results Areas in its Government Transformation Programme and the CPI had been adopted as a key transformation performance indicators.

The second is helping the Government and private sector put in place measures to curb corrupt practices. This is an area in which TI-M needs to engage constructively with institutions, agencies and other entities both in the public and private sectors. Our participation in helping improve governance in the Port Klang Free Zone and Port Klang Authority is a good example on how constructive engagement can be made. TI-M is currently engaging with Pemandu, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and also state administrations.
I understand the public probably have a high degree of scepticism but I do see a wind of change in our fight against corruption. To be successful in eliminating corruption requires multi-stakeholders’ commitment and this includes involvement of every member of our society. Malaysia can be a corruption-free society if we all have zero tolerance for corruption.

What kind of changes would you like to see in Malaysia in line with its ambition to become a developed nation by 2020? Saiful Ahmad, Johor
The first is the elimination of race-based politics. The politics of race has caused each community to be preoccupied with their weaknesses and inadequacy. A high sense of insecurity is created, giving rise to envious comparison. Hence, the politics of race had destroyed the kindred spirit among Malaysians. The second is the depoliticisation of education. The availability of quality manpower with the right competency and attitude is essential and the politicisation of education had not helped us. We need to be equipped with the language competency to deal with a globalised economy and to be able to absorb and apply knowledge on technology and science. Finally, we need to instil a culture of meritocracy and allow the market to reward performance.

What he said is so true. Malaysia is still stepping on the same ground or maybe moving backward now. We should try our best to overcome these problems for a better Malaysia in the future. 1Malaysia, so near yet so far. 

Wisdom is only found in truth
