‘In a nutshell – matters taken to the UN, ICJ or other International fora only those afraid to face up to the truth need fear, those suffering from an inferiority complex, bullies, race supremacist, those who want to dominate and abuse proceedings, whether it is a matter of oil royalties, minority rights, race and religious rights, the judicial autonomy of the Borneo states or whatsoever instead of behaving with honour, dignity, decorum and working in a mutual beneficial manner for King and Country!’
Consumerist: When Motions To Discuss Rejected By Speaker – Can We Blame If Those Frustrated Take It To The International Courts For Deliberation?
I raised this question, when a group of journalists from several media groups interviewed me this morning and among them, a vernacular newspaper perceived to be on the forefront of such malicious attacks!
Their question put to me was, is it not treason if Malaysians raise fundamental domestic issues in international forums, fora, at the UN or ICJ?
Were they not washing dirty linen in public and embarrassing the nation?
Were they not committing an act of treason?
My answer is a simple – No!
Our nation continues to stand tall but politicians in the system and their lackeys are the ones who are embarrassed because of their political indiscretions, abuse, double speak, are now made international news and talking points!
Our Federal Constitution is supreme but are those conducting these attacks and committing these political indiscretions in a regular organized manner against minority groups aware that they are violating basic and fundamental rights of citizens and of international law?
If an elected representative or a statesman is unable to raise a pertinent question on a pertinent policy matter of happening by warlord’s masquerading as speakers or others who are outsourced to threaten, slander, make police reports, stalk and conduct trial by media to frustrate that democratic right allowed by our federal constitution – then what avenue do they have to address a perceived wrong or injustice within the country – they may have to go abroad!
And UN statutes and international laws allow that right and platform!
We have the United Nations, we have the international courts, we have precedence already set in motion for aggrieved parties to take matters that violates basic human rights, genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity!
You cannot stop them!
Yes, one can hound, stalk, embarrass and conduct a media trial and slander those fighting causes by maliciously attacking them as traitors when all they are doing is addressing their fundamental rights according to the constitutions and UN conventions!
Should one cloud, smear and muddy class actions, human rights campaigns as an attack against any race, religion or creed?
Absolutely Not! But they have!
And politicians and politician ‘wanna be’ masquerading as NGO and ‘religious leaders’ must first go read and understand the Malaysian Federal Constitution before assuming what is right, wrong and treacherous!
That includes other regional agreements which includes the Malaysian Agreement involving Sabah and Sarawak before making silly and stupid statements on it and upsetting our brethren in Sabah and Sarawak!
Otherwise it will be perceived as one group strategically bulling another because they are the minorities under various guises and excuses.
This could lead to serious repercussion on a global scale!
Former Premier Tun Mahathir Mohamad has repeatedly reminded all of us the dangers of this but are we listening to his timely advice!
In a nutshell – matters taken to the UN, ICJ or other international fora – only those afraid to face up to the truth need fear, bullies, those suffering from an inferiority complex, those who want to dominate and abuse proceedings, whether it is a matter of oil royalties, minority rights, race and religious rights, the judicial autonomy of the Borneo states or whatsoever, instead of behaving with honour, dignity, decorum and working in a mutual beneficial manner for King and Country!
