UTUSAN MALAYSIA – CEASE THIS NAME CALLING!

I am appalled at a recent writing in Utusan Malaysia over their use of the word 'keling' in reference to the Malaysian Indians, and truly appreciates a note of rebuke to the use of such a word by my colleague Lt Col Mohd Idris Hassan (Retired) published in Malaysiakini dated December 11, 2009. Like my colleague, I too take serious offence at Utusan Malaysia for using the word 'keling' in reference to Indians, who like we Malays would be offended if we were called 'belacans'.

It is quite apparent that Utusan Malaysia is nothing more than trying to stroke the Malay sentiment against other non Malay Malaysians, and this is trading in dangerous waters. I believe the writer of the article is suffering from some serious deficiency syndrome of the brain; hence he cannot think nor write logically and sensibly. He need to immerse his head in mud so that he can have a better understanding of the Malaysian society, and if he still fails to understand, he ought to be thrown to the lions.

While PM Najib is trying hard to propagate to Malaysians the '1 Malaysia' concept, this UMNO owned paper tries to undo what all PM Najib is trying to do. It is now clear to my mind that Utusan Malaysia writers are simply ignorant, insensitive and have a muddled understanding of what a Malaysian society is all about. It is people like them who are the instigators and trouble makers, and it will also be them who will flee out of this country first, when there is disquiet in this country.

As a retired soldier and similarly that of my colleague Lt Col Mohd Idris, we have had many Indian soldiers who were willing to sacrifice their lives for the country. Have you heard of Capt Chandran who was posthumously awarded the nation's second highest gallantry award for his exploits during the Malaysian Insurgency. I have had many Malaysian Indian officers and soldiers serving me in Cambodia during the troubled period in 1992/93, and they never once showed signs of being disloyal to me. Besides the Indian soldiers, I had many other Malaysians of different ethnicity (Ibans, Kadazans, Muruts, Kelabits, Dusuns), but I can tell you all Utusan Malaysia writers that we were one.........Malaysians. There were no name calling. We ate, lived, worked and played together like one big family. We soldiers can show you that we practiced 1 Malaysia long before PM Najib ever thought of it.

I am indeed disgusted at what Utusan Malaysia has written, and to prove my anger at them, I have ceased buying Utusan since I retired from the Armed Forces in 1998.

At this time of our nation's development the very thought that we have a national newspaper engaging in this sort of degrading comments of an entire community is absolutely disgusting.And even more astonishing is that no UMNO leader has come forward to admonish the author and the newspaper.
Where do we go from here?

Mustang said...

Another PR gimmick to support the UMNO Putras. They will use all those tools left to gunner support. Thats all they are left with. How come for such racist remarks no concrete commmnets being given. The country is heading backwards, indeed way back now.

Maj.A R Ramachandran (Retired) said...

Dear Dato'
Being of Indian origin, I am not ashamed of my heritage. I am proud to be a 3rd generation Malaysian who has served the nation. Insyallah, a son of mine will be the fourth generation to serve my king and country. To those who speak and write and you are or never were in the service please "SHUT UP".

Gengis Khan said...

I am a bit slow, but I did not quite get what Maj. Ramachandran meant in the last part of his comment.Is it a rebuke to the bloger, and to all those who were not in Military service? The issue here is not wether you are proud or ashamed of your heritage.It is about degrading comments of an entire community by a national newspaper as said by Bernard!!!!!

aah said...

Dear Pak Chad,

I think you have not been fair to Utusan Malaysia,just because one stupid word Keling you are blaming the whole newspaper.You have forgotten that this newspaper is one of the pioneer newspaper that stood and defend this country during hardtimes especially in fighting the rights of the poor BUMIPUTRAS.

May I ask you did you ever read a Chinese or an Indian Newspaper ? I think you never read ,what the Chinese newspaper and Indian newspaper labelled the Malays and the Bumiputra is nothing to what Utusan Malaysia said.Please read Dr Ridzuan Tees blog and you will get the answer.

Hang Jebat said...

Dato' Sir..

I think aah has a point. Utusan Malaysia been out there since you were still a very small kid (perhaps)..and I was still nowhere in this world. This newspaper (earlier written in Jawi) played a very significant role to the nation building of our beloved country. Utusan Malaysia is not to be blamed entirely for the use of the word 'keling'. Its the writer.

Screw him!

And I totally agreed with aah that we should also look into what the Chinese and Indian newspaper writes about us - Malays.

Oldman Gunner said...

So, what does the Chinese and Indian (I mean Tamil) Newspapers write about us the Malays?

samsaimon said...

Salam Dato',

So, Tanjong Keling, Mesjid Keling, Kampong Keling and Kueh Keling?
Pity them, nobody fights to change their names!!!

In Penang, the Indian Muslims are called Keling!
Check it out!

What is the real agenda?

Are they asking for another riots?
Are they ready for it?

This are the very REAL questions THAT we must ask...apa kah agenda sebenar MEREKA?

TO REMAIN IN POWER IN THIS COUNTRY, ONE HAS GOT MANY OPTIONS..LEGALLY AND ILLEGALLY!
THE CHOICE IS ALWAYS THERE.

We are all standing and staring at something very very dark and if it happens we are all to be blamed for allowing it all to take place!

It is a ticking time bomb....!

Lt_Muda said...

Terlebih dahulu izinkan saya mengucapkan salam sejahtera kepada Yang Berbahagia Dato’ serta keluarga. Semoga Yang Berbahagia Dato’ dan keluarga berada dalam keadaan sihat walafiat.

Yang Berbahagia Dato', izinkan saya memberi sedikit pandangan peribadi saya tentang perkara ini.

Walaupun saya ini masih muda dalam umur dan pangkat, bagi saya, daripada pandangan saya dari dulu sehingga sekarang "Utusan Malaysia" memang sengaja mengapikan kaum Melayu untuk membencikan kaum lain. Kalau lah sesuatu kaum itu tidak suka dipanggil dengan panggilan-panggilan tertentu, kenapa perlu kita dengan sengaja menyakitkan hati kaum tersebut dengan panggilan-panggilan nama. Tak kisahlah asal-usul panggilan itu dari mana ke, siapa yang memakai panggilan tersebut atau kenapa panggilan tersebut diguna pakai untuk kaum tersebut. Kalau kaum tersebut tidak mahu kaum tersebut dikaitkan dengan panggilan tersebut, hentikan sahaja lah, kenapa perlu kita cuba membangkitkan kemarahan orang lain dengan panggilan nama yang tidak disukai.

YAB PM sedang berusaha untuk menyatukan semua kaum dengan mengwujudkan konsep 1MALAYSIA, kita sebagai rakyat Malaysia patutnya menyokong usaha YAB PM, bukan nya jadi macam Utusan Malaysia.

Kepada YBhg Tuan aah, boleh Tuan sebut apakah lebel yang dilebelkan kepada orang Melayu oleh akhbar Cina dan India. Saya sebagai seorang Melayu ingin sangat nak tahu label saya dari pandangan kaum lain dalam Malaysia.

Gengis Khan said...

Well said Lt Muda you hit the nail on the head.You will go far in your career

Salam

Hang Jebat said...

Lt Muda,

Saya rasa awak mungkin terlalu muda untuk memahami apa yang saya nak cakapkan ini.

Dalam tahun 40an hingga 70an atau mungkin hingga tahun 80an, panggilan 'keling' kepada kaum India ni biasa sahaja. Tidak menimbulkan kemarahan atau apa-apa perasaan tak puas hati pun. Saya bersekolah dalam sebuah sekolah berasrama penuh yang terdiri daripada pelbagai kaum (lewat 70an hingga pertengahan 80an). Panggilan 'keling' adalah biasa kepada kawan-kawan kami yang berbangsa India. Bagi yang Benggali kami panggil Bai. Tak ada apa-apa pun.

Masa sekolah dulu, saya dan kawan-kawan Melayu lain tak ragu-ragu dan tak kisah pun nak pergi makan di rumah kawan-kawan China atau India masa Tahun Baru China atau Deepavali. Kami tahu mereka tak akan hidangkan kami makanan yang tak halal. Mereka pun faham.

Adakah perkara sebegini masih berlaku sekarang? Mungkin ya mungkin tidak. Saya rasa tidak. Anak saya sekarang sekolah macam saya dulu. Dia tak buat pun macam saya dulu. Anak saya kata di sekolah pun mereka jarang bercampul gaul rapat.

Jadi saya rasa kita tahulah kenapa sekarang benda ni jadi sensitif. Kita dah semakin menjarakkan diri antara kita yang berlainan bangsa dan agama. Maka sebab itulah timbul idea 1Malaysia.

Baca blog Datuk A. Kadir Jasin. Beliau ada tulis satu postings tak lama dulu tentang perkara ini.

aah said...

Saudara Mawar rimba dan Lt Muda,

Tolong baca blog Dr Ridhuan Tee dan Blog Hindraf lepas itu kita boleh bahas.Dalam tuntutan Hindraf yang dihantar keKerajaan British ia menuduh Kerajaan Malaysia yang dipimpin oleh orang Melayu sedang melakukan PEMBERSIHAN ETNIK PADA KAUM INDIA,betulka ? dan surat khabar India terus tanpa segan silu membawa cerita ini.

Kes ini sedang di bicara dalam Mahkamah dan banyak lagi perkara perkara yang sengaja ditimbulkan oleh puak puak ini. Setiap bangsa ada had had toleransinya.Adakah Bangsa Melayu begitu buruk sekali perangai mereka hingga sanggup melakukan 'ETHNIC CLEANSING' terhadap bangsa lain.

Gengis Khan said...

Saudara, Hang Jebat with respect I think you got this wrong "Bagi yang Benggali kami panggil Bai. Tak ada apa-apa pun."
Firstly there were no Benggalis then. I suppose you must be must be refering to Punjabie Sikhs.(Singh) If that is so than calling them Bai till this day is in fact very polite as Bai means brother in punjabi. So of course it is Tak ada apa-apa pun.We are not talking about adressing your school mates Keling as something normal in the seventies, although I believe even then you just could not call any Indian in the street a Keling without being soundly rebuked by him. The crux of the problem now is that the Indians to day don't like it.So why call them Keling and get them worked up and angry.I am sure the Malays would not want to be called "Blachan" which the Indians used in retaliation to being called Keling. The Utusan should use it recorces to connect all races not divide them.To day we need unity of all races like never before. So God help us.

Lt_Muda said...

Yang Berbahagia Tuan Hang Jebat, dengan izin. Tuan cakap pasal zaman kanak-kanak Tuan dulu. Tapi Tuan yang pokoknya sekarang, kaum India tidak mahu mahu mereka di panggil dengan "panggilan nama" tapi kenapa perlu kita masih degil dan panggil mereka dengan "nama".

Berkenaan dengan menziarahi rumah-rumah rakan kita yang berlainan agama, saya rasa kita orang Melayu sendiri yang mengasingkan diri kita. Saya masih ingat lagi masa saya sekolah rendah dulu, bila Aidil Fitri saja ramai rakan-rakan sekolah saya yang berlainan agama akan kunjung ke rumah saya dan menikmati hidangan raya. Mereka amat suka dengan rendang dengan lemang dan ayah saya akan bagi duit raya kepada semua rakan-rakan saya walaupun mereka berlainan agama. Tapi yang sedihnya, bila raya mereka, terutama raya Cina saya masih ingat lagi, mak saya melarang saya kerumah mereka. Alasannya masakan/makanan mereka tak halal. Saya perlu memberi macam-macam alasan kepada kepada rakan-rakan saya kerana tak melawat mereka. Lama-kelamaan mereka pun jarang ke rumah saya dan saya kehilangan ramai kawan-kawan. Bila saja masuk sekolah menengah kawan-kawan saya yang masa sekolah rendah dulu dah jadi macam orang asing kepada saya. Tuan Hang Jebat, saya tidak tahu siapa yang perlu disalahkan disini. Kita dibesarkan dengan cara begini, baik yang Melayu ke Cina ke atau India. Kemana arah tuju Malaysia.

Kalaulah saya sendiri keliru, macam mana dengan budak-budak yang masih mentah lagi. Walaupun umur saya masih muda lagi (telah masuk 23 pada bulan Nov lepas) kekadang saya tertanya, bagaimanakah masa depan Malaysia yang dikenali sebagai "Malaysia Truly Asia".

Saya masih ingat lagi, CO saya pernah cerita tentang pengalaman beliau semasa bertugas di Bosnia. dan saya tanya beliau kenapa orang-orang berperang dan membunuh sesama mereka. Jawapan beliau "Rakyat Bosnia tiada masalah, mereka hidup aman dan damai, yang masalah adalah orang-orang politik yang membangkitkan perasaan benci sesama rakyat yang berlainan kumpulan etnik sehingga mereka sanggup membunuh sesama mereka".

Saya mengambil kesempatan ini untuk mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih kepada YBhg Dato' kerana memberi peluang kepada saya untuk meluahkan apa yang terpendam dalam diri saya selama ini. Terima kasih YBhg Dato'.

Lt_Muda said...

YBhg Tuan aah, saya tidak ajak Tuan berbahas dan saya tidak berniat nak berbahas dengan Tuan. Saya tahu tuan lebih senior dan lebih berpengalaman dari saya.

Ini adalah kenyataan yang Tuan buat dalam post Tuan:

"May I ask you did you ever read a Chinese or an Indian Newspaper? I think you never read, what the Chinese newspaper and Indian newspaper labelled the Malays and the Bumiputra is nothing to what Utusan Malaysia said."

Saya cuma nak tahu apakah lebel yang dilebelkan oleh akhbar-akhbar Cina dan India terhadap orang-orang Melayu dan Bumiputra, itu saja. Yang Tuan ni ajak berbahas kenapa?

Mawar_Rimba said...

Woiiiii ahh, ape yang ditulis dalam surat kabau Cina dan India tu, ape lebelnya kepada orang-orang Melayu? Yang you suruh i gi baca Blog Dr Riduan Tee dan Blog Hindraf tu apesal? Itulah, lain kali jangan pandai2 nak buat statement. Orang macam you lah yang rosakkan Melayu dan men"champion"kan melayu.

For your information saya bukan "saudara" saya "saudari".

Folks I suggest read what the good Dr R.Tee has to say first!

After that analyze and then only criticize positively !

As for the Young man, he has a brave heart & I think he is aninnocent man, he may say he is young but the benefit of the doubt to who he is really is given to him!

Bosnia is the best example - can Ask Dato' Pak Chad about it, what we saw and what we hear from the horses mouth!
Yes we were there together!

Young Man..
Somalia is even better!
I Can tell you the whole story for three days and three nights!

My book will come out soon!

Yes the wars of this world was never started by any bloody poor soldier or general!

They would rather stay home with their loved ones and not having to kill any other human being!

It is those bloody POLITICIANS.

FROM THE DAYS OF YONDER TILL TODAY :FROM ROME,ENGLAND,FRANCE,Spain to AFRICA, China, Japan, Germany, Russia ...you name it!

Wars & Bloodshed has nothing to do with soldiers having a choice!

They are merely pawns in a chess game!

He merely follow orders, otherwise he faces a military court marshial!

That is why Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali...he refuse to kill innocent people in Vietnam!

So young man read the military history books... they have much to tell you !

"Soldiers will die and will get hurt, we can't avoid it" - This was quoted by Yankee President Obama and British PM Brown when asked about troops deployed in Afghanistan!

See how clever they are, they can only start wars but never end it. Iraq is still in shambles and all of them have decided to leave!

Is the President or PM going to cry over ten dead bodies?

Is his son or daughter fighting there also?

Is the queen of England allowing the two Prince to fight up front in the battle fields with British Troops?

NO...they have royal blood, they cannot be exposed they say!

Those days the so called English King himself leads his man to the battle field. Whether he stays up front or just in the rear I do not know?

So...think about it before we start a WAR we can't END!

ALL UTUSAN STAFF FROM TOP TO BOTTOM MUST BE SENT TO A WAR ZONE
AND LET THEM STAY THERE FOR 1 YEAR!

AS FOR ALL THOSE POLITICIANS WHO LOVE CONFLICT AND WAR WE SEND THEM TO THE AFGHANISTAN MOUNTAINS AND SEE FOR THEMSELVES WHAT WAR IS ABOUT, LET THEM STAY THERE FOR 1 YEAR TOO !

YB Maj Gen Dato Jamil Khir (rtd) can give a very good lecture in the Somalia conflict to all UMNO and BN members too!

Hang Jebat said...

Mr gengis khan,

Ok about the Sikh things..i maybe wrong. Fine. Most of the Indians (those days) and their descendants (today) were originally came from a place (or state) called Kalinga. The word 'keling' was just a short form of it. Then again, I might be wrong here. I don't know. Somebody told me this.

I personally don't like this name calling also. But on the other hand, the Indians here should be proud of the word 'keling' 'coz in my hometown Melaka there were places called Tg Keling and Kg Keling. Do we need to change that too? There's a mosque named Masjid Kg Keling too! The word 'keling' is highly regarded actually. Don't you think so?

Lt Muda,

What I am trying to say is the bond between us was much much better those days than today. If the Indians don't like the word, fine. So be it. Its okay with me. Today, I don't call them 'keling' anymore. I always use the contemporary words like 'Bro' or 'Boss' to call those I don't know.

Mawar_Rimba said...

Dr. Ridhuan Tee is one "Chinaman" (I Beg Your Pardon)who is a racist and trying to be "More Melayu" than the Melayus. I think Dr. Ridhuan Tee should be the first one to be send to Afhganistan.

Dear Komando,

I dont have a crystal ball neither I am a genious to interprate but the game or manouvre is the same with what have been done before by the old senile Mamak (who claim himself Melayu)and rule the land for 22 years.He flourish and prosper due to the Malays stupidity.Do you realise that the Mamak race is much better than the real and true Melayu in this country.Look around you and think..............from business giant,to Ministerial post,Mydin,Jakel,etc.Who did all these ? Who changes all the Mamak My Kad from A/L to Bin in their name. The Melayus in UMNO could not identify and differentiate between black and brown skin in their organisation.Why cant they eliminate and get rid of these trouble makers from their peers (this fake Melayus) and replace them with the true Melayus whose roots originate from the Malay Archipelago and not the Melayus by Law who originate from the Indian subcontinent.They should be declassified as persona non grata to UMNO and must be driven to join KIMMA (Kesatuan India Muslim Malaysia).Baru tu le aku rasa Melayu ni jadi bangsa yang Merdeka dan berdaulat dan tidak menjadi bangsa yang tercemar oleh keturunan mamak ni..........apa macam betul tak.

If u a Melayu goes and reside in England and be a British citizen do you think that you will be called ENGLISHMAN and given the right and status as BRIT?

WaliMuar, December 16,2009 @ 2.20PM

You are right, very right. Thats why in my earlier comment I mentioned that the Indian Muslim (MAMAK) in Penang are called KELING!.
Keling yang dipanggil 'mamak' ni lebih bahaya daripada ULAR.
Itu pasal Orang Melayu kita dulu dulu bijak.
Dia orang dah bagi tahu kita, kalau jumpa Ular dan Keling, pukul Keling (mamak)dulu.
Tapi Melayu Mudah Lupa.

Patutlah Orang India marah, mereka bukan Keling!

What if this calling names is the other way around. I mean the Non-Melayus calling names the Melayus. What do you think we Melayus will be doing?

More fruitful to look around us rather than bickering at our multi ethnicities.

Here are the facts:we lack behind Singapore and Brunei in terms of GDP.Malaysia GDP is considered in the upper Middle Class (RM20,000) whereas Singapore is the High Income bracket(RM40,000).

We should use the powerful values of the Malays, Chinese, Indians, Dayaks, Ibans, Kadazans, Mamaks etc to move this country forward.

I believe combined together, these values can be a powerful force to catch up with Singapore.

If Fernandez could build the best and cheapest budget airline in the world, surely our scientists too, could compete in the green technology revolution taking place in advanced countries now.

Yes we should oppose those out to split the society.Please do not fall into the trap of chauvinistic group of people.

Sudara Commando,
With respect If I may say that Mamak is not actually a clan. In it's orginal form among Indian Muslims it is a refrence to paternal uncle or (Loosely) any uncle is called "mamak" In Hundistani an uncle is refered as "Mama" If you want to know "Kutty" is a clan and so is "Dawood"to name a few.

Mawar_Rimba said...

aah, saya minta maaf kerana panggilan "woii" terhadap anda. Tapi saya masih menunggu jawapan anda untuk soalan saya.

Berkenaan Dr Ridhuan Tee, saya tidak setuju dengan pendapat dia. He is only talking with his "book knowledge" without experience. He should visit some African Countries, Europe and the Middle East. Mungkin ada yang berlainan pendapat dari saya. That is your personal view and this is my personal view.

Berkenaan dengan panggilan "Mamak", saya rasa kalau tak silap dalam bahasa Tamil pun "Mamak" means "Uncle".

Salutations to all,
I stumbled onto this blog whilst searching for something else. Reading thru almost make my eyes moist. I realise there are more right thinking Malaysians then I thought possible. It gives me hope. I can identify with some of the recollections of lost friends from days of old. Keep up the good work Dato.
IMHO, I have come to believe that this particular paper is sometimes called upon to stir things up by either spreading fear or threathen retribution. You see, if we are left alone to become Malaysian like before and better Malaysian for the future, all the race based parties may become irrelevant.
It is not coincident that we see the results of the last election with the popularity of the medium we are on now. It has proven to be difficult to censor. Though they now have full timer ghost writers scouring this medium to rebutt negative (to them) writings.
