Consumerist: Govt Urged To Withdraw Tanda Putera Movie In The National Interest!’

Dato Jacob George

 

‘It is sad that once again lessons have not being learnt and perhaps it is just a matter of time before issues like this find their way to the International Court of Justice at the Hague among other matters for arbitration using records from archives at the Public Records in London!

As far as this movie go, I am certain, in fact confident that Malaysia’s present generation of both young and old will reject it out rightly and perhaps this will be lesson to be learnt by Malaysia’s overzealous self serving politicians?’ – Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: Withdraw Screening Movie ‘Tanda Putera’ In The Nation’s Interest Govt Urged!
shuhaimi babaI do not know neither have I met Shuhaimi Baba!

She may be a marvelous person, perhaps even a very wealthy person, with all the right connections, and perhaps even all the good intentions but even a child watching her latest production Tanda Putera, movie – fully funded by the National Film Development Corporation (Finas) and the Multimedia Development Corporation (Mdec) cannot but conclude it is a product of sheer hypocrisy, manipulation of facts for a particular political agenda, a skewed re-telling of what happened during the 1969 race riots and pitched to open at the theaters weeks before Malaysia’s 13 General Election is about to be called!
NONEThe RM4.8 million movie does show what our ‘political black hands want’ – demonizing one’s political opponents and on the other perpetuate the popular ‘bodek’ and ‘kiss the politicians ass’ culture of hero worshiping even if they are all factually wrong!

It is an attempt to make today’s multi racial Malaysians who have broken the bondage to political slavery and subsidy look pretty stupid but it is an act that will backfire again at those behind its inception!

Those behind this movie have absolutely no respect for the innocent victims or their survivors and next of kin!

It is all about both political positioning, financial and political gains if any?

However worst the timing of this event at the most holy month of Ramadan a period for prayer, fasting, good deeds, reconciliation, re-examination of our lives according to the Almighty’s will is simply unforgivable despite to political predators in sheep’s clothes it is a convenient bogey man to flog as defeat stares at one’s eyes as GE13 appears to face one?

The film is an attempt to set to stir emotions, anger, animosity, and break down what gains have been made since 1969 out of nothing but lies for political expediency!

It is sad that once again lessons have not being learnt and perhaps it is just a matter of time before issues like this find their way to the International Court of Justice at the Hague among other matters for arbitration using records from archives at the Public Records in London!

As far as this movie go, I am certain, in fact confident that Malaysia’s present generation of both young and old will reject it out rightly and perhaps this will be lesson to be learnt by Malaysia’s overzealous self serving politicians?

We should not allow racist and political shenanigans or political expediency whoever and what ever medium they be to dictate backward policies and the federal government must have the courage to say ‘Nay!’ and win accolades moving the nation forward as 1Malaysia!

It is time to leave sad, hurting and despicable happenings of old buried and behind where they rightfully belong!
