I saw a comment in Prof Ramlah Adam : ‘Sang Saka Malaya’ Bukan Bendera Tanah Melayu-AIDC which said:
The issue of changing the Jalur Gemilang did not arise. PR (the opposition) is not the government. BN (Barisan Nasional) is now the government. It is indeed a good idea for them (the Janji Bersih demonstrators) to bring up the history (of the existence )of the Sang Saka Malaya, which our warriors had once been fighting for. It can open the minds of the younger generations in understanding the history of (our) independence. They (the Janji Bersih demonstrators) were only showing an old flag, not a weapon. How people closed their minds to the diversity of view.
Of course it is very good when the younger generations are interested about the history of our country. What was wrong is the fact that the Janji Bersih demonstrator (also known as ‘Janji Demokrasi’ and ‘Bersih 4.0’) introduced the Sang Saka Malaya to in the crowds as ‘the new Malaysian flag’ and distributed leaflets demanding the change of the Malaysian flag from the current Jalur Gemilang to the Sang Saka Malaya, what more when it was on the eve of Merdeka. By doing so, the demonstrators had not only humiliate the Jalur Gemilang but they also did not respect the Rukun Negara or the Rule of the Country. Here is the list of the Rukun Negara:
- Kepercayaan Kepada Tuhan (Belief in God)
- Kesetiaan Kepada Raja dan Negara (Loyalty to King and Country)
- Keluhuran Perlembagaan (Supremacy of the Constitution)
- Kedaulatan Undang-undang (The Rule of Law)
- Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan (Good Behaviour and Morality)
(If you want a free copy of the Rukun Negara, perhaps you should buy Gardenia’s White Bread. The Rukun Negara is printed on the plastic of the halal, tasty, healthy and soft bread )
Why Janji Bersih Is Against the Rukun Negara?
Kesetiaan Kepada Raja dan Negara (Loyalty to King and Country)
As stated by Malaysia’s historian, Professor Ramlah Adam, the Sang Saka Malaya was the flag of the Kesatuan Melayu Muda (KMM) (Young Malays Union), a party which fought for the unification of the Persekutuan Tanah Melayu and the Republik Indonesia and to turn the Persekutuan Tanah Melayu into a republic.
By changing the Persekutuan Tanah Melayu into a republic, they are not being loyal to our king because they want to eradicate the rights of the king and end the existence of the Malaysia Kings.
Kedaulatan Undang-undang (The Rule of Law)
The Janji Bersih demonstration was declared as an illegal assembly by the police because the organisers should have submitted an official notification to the police of their gathering 10 days before the event/demonstration as written under Section 9(1) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.Dang Wangi district police chief ACP Zainuddin Ahmad has told the organisers to cancel it and warned the public against participating in it. Yet they still carried on with the demonstration. By doing so, they did not obey the 4th Rukun Negara.
Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan (Good Behaviour and Morality)
I think everyone should already know about the bad behaviour and morality presented by the Janji Bersih demonstrators.
- Not obeying the Rukun Negara is already a bad thing to do for if we are a Malaysian citizen, we must obey the rules of the country.
- We should not disgrace our Jalur Gemilang in any way.
- They showed very bad behaviour when they disgraced our Prime Minister and his wife by stepping and throwing things on a photo of our Prime Minister and his wife.
