Open letter to Malaysian: Why do we need to learn history?

Dear Malaysians,

1. Today, the Prime Minister has appointed a controversial figure (let us name him Mr KJ) to become a Minister. Since we are living in a free and open democracy, please allow me to give my opinion on this appointment.

2. Firstly, I respect the Prime Minister prerogative in appointing his cabinet but that does not mean we should stay silent.

3. Exactly 30 years ago, a controversial bloke (let us called him Mr AI) was appointed as a full minister - Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports. He was appointed to this ministerial position after he defeated SK for the Youth Leader position the year before. He was also at that time a member of Parliament after winning the PP seat.

Today, Mr KJ was appointed to the same ministerial position after winning the Youth Leader position and Parliamentary seat.

4. When Mr AI defeated SK for the Youth Leader position in a heated party election, there were cries of  'politik wang' or in a laymen term - rasuah. Coincidentally, when Mr KJ became Youth Leader in a heated election there were also shouts of rasuah...rasuah...rasuah.

5. AI was and still is considered the best in terms of oratory skill in Malaysian politics. Many of the world dictators are brilliant orator - Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini. Mao, etc . In Multi level marketing (MLM), you sell yourself and your product to get people attention. In Pasar Seni, fraudsters sells snake oil to get people attention and usually they will show documents and so called 'evidence' to get people attention.

Back in the old days, Mr AI used Islam as his products and his involvement in many different youth and Islamic societies as a testimonial of his abilities and capabilities. Back then, whoever tried to criticize Mr AI, they were chided as being jealous (the J-word). Of course, as Mr AI progressed in the political scene, he slowly changed his product from Islam to the Malay agenda. However, today, Mr AI talks about liberalization and acceptance of gay rights.

Similarly, Mr KJ is also a good orator. He uses his academic credential as his testimonial. When someone try to criticize him, his supporters will throw the J-word. His products? When he first came to prominence, he was selling the Malay agenda as his product. He was so adamant of this agenda that one of his goons  provoked the then Youth Leader to show 'the keris'. However, lately, he has change his tune and try to re-brand his product similar to what Mr AI did.

6. Just five months after joining a political party, Mr AI was appointed Deputy Minister at the PM Office. During this short period of time, he recruited a lot of his friends from ABIM, and at the PM office, he started scheming and planning. One of his friend that he managed to brought over was also known as KJ! In fact Mr AI has two close friends named KJ. When Mr AI became Youth Leader, most of his supporters are already well-placed in the party hierarchy.

 Similarly, Mr KJ also had a short but destructive time at the DPM/PM office. He did better than Mr AI by marrying the DPM daughter in 2001. When the DPM became PM, his status went from Special Officer to the DPM -> Deputy Principal Private Secretary to the PM. There, he recruited a lot of his pals from around the world. This period of time is known as The Fourth Floor era. The effect of misrule and silly policies from the Fourth Floor Boys is still being felt until today. If you do not know what the Fourth Floor Boys is and their effects to the nation, please ask Uncle Google.

 7. It will be most interesting to see in the next couple of years how Mr KJ will use his position to influence the youth. My bet is that he will exactly do what Mr AI did when he was KBS and then later on, Education Minister. Back then, Mr AI abused his position to make himself an idol for the youth. Instead of promoting UMNO as a brand, he was promoting himself as the brand. This self-branding was continued in a large scale effort when he was appointed Minister of Education.

For the past 5 years, Mr KJ has done nothing as Youth Leader to improve the perception amongst the youth towards his party. Instead, he was busy promoting KJ as the brand, as a result he is considerably well-known in the social media world. This is just a sample of things to come.

8. The fact that a lot of the so called 'anti-rasuah' generals and brigades are congratulating him is just sickening. It shows that Malaysian are forgetful lot (mudah lupa). It also shows that rasuah is not really a problem as long as the toll price, the car price, the petrol price, the price of groceries and whatever else are cheap.

9. There is no such thing as new politics. Politics is old. When Mr AI was DPM, he used his minions in the mainstream media to project an aura of 'greatness'. Mr KJ uses social media to project his 'greatness'. At the end of the day, the objective and the desired result is still the same.

Mr Prime Minister, you were with Mr AI since the Youth days, are you too blind to see that Mr KJ is exactly like him? I do understand it is politically suicidal if Mr KJ was not given a position since he has branded himself well especially amongst the youth. So in GE14, please put him in a mixed or Chinese majority seat in Klang Valley.

10. Sulaiman Palestine once warned TDM to be careful of Mr AI. Now, I would like to remind the Prime Minister and the whole Malaysian to learn from history.

Open letter to the Prime Minister: BN can win urban Malay voters

Dear Mr Prime Minister,

1. First of all, I would like to congratulate you for your recent win. However, I share your disappointment at the failure of getting 2/3rd majority and getting back Selangor.

2. A lot of analysis have bee done by numerous people on why we failed. Please allow me to share my own opinion.

3. We did not get 2/3 + Selangor because 95% of Chinese voted for DAP led Pakatan and rejection of the urban Malay voters. I do not want to talk about the Chinese Tsunami since many people have covered this already. However I would like to state here that the Chinese Tsunami did indeed happened. Period.

In this letter, I would like to give my opinion on how to win back the urban Malay voters. We could have gotten the 2/3 + Selangor in the last GE if we had satisfy this group.

How to win them back?

a) They voted for Pakatan to get cheap cars

The urbanites did not want to listen to BN explanation. Period. In their minds, if the perceived corruption is eliminated then somehow this will trickle down so much so that the price of cars will be cheaper.

You can show all kinds of predictions and diagrams - they just refused to listen. The UMNO Youth failed to do their job despite having an 'intelligent' leader.

Solution  - Give them what they want.

 b) They voted for Pakatan to get free education

 The urban youth rejected BN explanation. In their mind, if the perceived corruption is eliminated then somehow this will trickle down and everybody can go to university for free.

They dont want explanation. The UMNO Youth failed to explain and convince the youth/students reg this issue despite the 'Twitter Popularity' of the UMNO Youth Leader.

Solution - Give them what they want

c) They voted for Pakatan to get cheaper houses

See (A) and (B)

d) They voted for Pakatan to get cheaper groceries

See (A), (B) and (C)

4. So you see Mr Prime Minister, all the talk about rasuah, unfair election etc is really a smokescreen. If you had promise to do 3 out of 4 from the above, you'll get your 2/3 + Selangor. Is it responsible? Can the country afford these? The urbanites do not care. They think that if there are no corruption then all the above could happen. They failed to look at Singapore where the amount of corruption is low but the price of houses are extremely expensive. They just do not want to listen.

5. I am not saying that we should take lightly of corruption. Actually we should have heavier and harsher penalty for corrupt individuals than what we have now.

6. BN has always been seen as a party for the rich and the very poor. You need to capture the middle class people because they are the majority in this country now. I have mentioned this before in my previous post but you opted to listen to your advisors instead - so i just kept quiet.

7. I was truly dissapointed with your continued appeasement of the Chinese and refusal to listen to the demand of the urban Malay middle class. You have 5 more years to rectify the mistakes. You do not need to appoint Anwar Ibrahim 2.0 to get the urban votes.

8. Try harder to unite UMNO-PAS. You had bend and kneel to the Chinese You went to great length to win their votes. Why cant you do the same for your base? Why are you taking your base for granted? Trust me, when the Malays unite, the rest will follow.

A sarcastic reply to Azran Osman-Rani @azranosmanrani

Dear Comrade Azran,

As a fellow self-hating Malay, let me officially welcome you to the Self-Hating Malay Club (SHMC). At SHMC, our motto is 'To curb free-speech/expression for Malays'. Our goal is to intimidate the Malays and make them feel insecure, inferior and guilty. SHMC members are recruited on an invitation basis. Since you have shown such tremendous pompousness in your twitter, we feel that you deserve to join our illustrious club.


In regards to your twitter jab at Utusan Malaysia, you are absolutely correct. How dare this paper voice up what majority of the Malays are currently thinking?! That is so blasphemous! A newspaper should only report what is known as politically correct. This means feel free to write anything desparaging and degrading remarks to Malays but never write any criticism of the Chinese. So what if vernacular newspapers have been writing more racist and sensitive content for the past 5 years? We self-hating Malays only understand English and Malays.Therefore we can forgive the Chinese because they have suffered much.

I suggest that you get in touch with our comrades from Anti Defamation League (ADL) and learn from them how they discriminate and bully Muslim in a very sophisticated manner. Comrade Tian Chua should be able to give you the contact number.


The Chinese have been living in a hell for almost 60 years. They have been discriminated and tortured by the Malays. The Malays have never done anything for the Chinese! Don't be fool by the nice act of Malays buying from Chinese owned shop and supermarkets although there are Malays shop nearby - Malays are conniving. Also, don't listen to those people who say 90% of Top 10 richest person in Malaysia are Chinese! That is a lie! Those people are not Chinese! They are Malays who have done plastic surgery to look like a Chinese ! It is BN conspiracy!!! The Chinese can never make a living in this country because it is so terrible.


We at SHMC should do what the Chinese does - Buy Malays Last! Just look at the average income of Chinese for goodness sake - they have suffered so much comrade! At SHMC, we want to make sure that no Malays should ever question the Chinese ever again! If any Malays ever dare to question the Chinese motif, we at SHMC will report it to the corrupt PDRM.


I am happy that your company share similar corporate colour with our comrade in Penang (i.e. DAP). It is unfortunate that you did not speak out before GE13, otherwise we can inform comrade Kit Siang and comrade Guan Eng about you. You could have been Yang Berhormat by now instead of working for that capitalist boss of yours!


From time to time, people may ask you why you become a self-hating Malay. At SHMC, our standard mantra is - Blame BN! If you wear the wrong pants to work - Blame BN! If your son grows up becoming an ungrateful son - Blame BN.  If it is raining today - Blame BN. Basically comrade, Blame BN for everything. Get it?


Please tell the gullible Malays the truth.

a) You have never received any help from the Evil Darth Vader cum Saruman government which is BN. Tell them that you manage to study at Stanford because of the magical money tree behind your parents house.

b) Tell them that you became Senior Vice President (Policy & Development) at the corrupted BN owned KLSE because you are super duper Einstein-like mind, not because a Malay (former KLSE Chairman) gave you a chance.

c) You did not joined ASTRO - a company owned by Mahathir crony. Instead, Utusan Malaysia had cloned you and put your clone there.


As a conclusion, please tweet more self-hating statements in the future. We at SHMC welcome your tweets. Don't worry about the PDRM. They will not arrest people who criticize and make disparaging remarks against Malays, they will only catch you if you make such remarks to Chinese.

Personally, I will promote your company, Malindo Air, to my whole family and friends. We at SHMC will start boycotting Air Asia because Comrade Ambiga told us Air Asia flew Banglas into the country for GE13.

Your Comrade-In-Arms,

Fatimah Zuhri
