‘I am sure there is enough documents here and abroad where there is enough evidence to draw conclusions who are the true nationalists and patriots; who are the opportunists and collaborators then and sing a different song and tune today!’ – Dr Jacob George
Consumerist: Are Political Hawks Rewriting History To Hide Truth?
Friends in Sabah and Sarawak are today angry at the attempt by certain political shenanigans to attempt to rewrite anthropological details about them for a political angle?
In Sarawak, I am certain it would not succeed as long as Uncle Abdul Taib Mahmud is there!
He has positioned that state in firm footing and won the accolades of the masses there in the manner his administration has brought development to the masses!
The race relations factor is also a high positive in Sarawak – a great achievement of the Taib administration, again.
I have always been passionate about history!
Any chance I get to discuss with my relatives and others who were there along with Grandpa George, I will take it.
So it was great meeting them and over traditional ‘Malayalam food and drinks’ – we started many conversations.
And what did we discuss?
They shared their experience and knowledge on the Japanese and British colonial rule in Malaya and the contributions of individuals and political parties therein.
They shared about the brutal periods of the Japanese occupation, life under our colonial masters Britain, issues pertaining to the emergency, a fact that is re-engineered now foolishly!
They spoke of patriots, freedom fighters, opportunist and those who ‘hunted with the hounds and ran with the hares!’
They spoke of those who collaborated with the Japanese and negotiated shamelessly with the British and sucked up to them but today sing different tunes for political expediency?
And surprised at the stupidity of the ones unborn then making political statements as if they were there?
But truth is the truth and can never wash, no matter what spin and multi million ringgit media blitz does or what certain ‘kangaroo Professors’ say as well!
I am sure there is enough documents here and abroad where there is enough evidence to draw conclusions who are the true nationalists and patriots; who are the opportunists and collaborators, then and sing a different song and tune today!
