“Mute from government sent wrong message to racial tension“

Press statement by MCA Youth Selangor Secretary Gan Kang Kai dated 24/11/2018:

Gan Kang Kai“Mute from government sent wrong message to racial tension“

A shopper named as Mohamad Edi Bin Mohamad Riyars (aka Edi Rejang on Facebook) uploaded a video he took in a shopping mall where he accused a lady promoter for conducting beer sampling activities. The Chinese promoter clarified clearly that she approached non-Muslim consumers only.

Also, the managing director of the beer company, Lars Lehmann confirmed that she was just doing her job in line with all rules and regulations.

However, Edi berated the lady with vulgar language & middle finger. He even described the Chinese lady as a woman of pig breed (perempuan keturunan babi in Malay) His action of being a racist and using threatening, abusive or insulting language received backfire on him. Netizens from all races criticized his wrongdoing immediately.

It has been a week since the incident broke out but there’s not even a single comment from Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, the Women, Family and Community Development Minister.

“Wan Azizah should be the first minister to act against the barbaric action of Edi but she did nothing by remaining silent so far, just like nothing happened,” said Gan Kang Kai, the MCA Youth Selangor Secretary.

In Gan’s opinion, Wan Azizah ought to act immediately to defend the lady who was harassed by the shopper openly because she is the minister holding the portfolio of safeguarding women’s right.

“I am really disappointed with Wan Azizah who kept silent. This is something like sending a wrong message to the society indirectly where there’s no problem of insulting, berating, harassing & discriminating ladies in Malaysia”, said Gan.

Gan emphasized that Wan Azizah is also the Deputy Prime Minister who has responsibility to curb racial tension swiftly. She has all sorts of power required to call for a full stop to the trouble maker Edi but she failed to do so.

On the other hand, Gan gave a big applause to the lady promoter who remained calm while facing harassment from shopper. Anyway, he reminded that not all Malaysians will remain calm while being treated unfairly.

“A little spark may burst a mighty flame. That’s why it is crucial for the government to take immediate action to eliminate any spark that carries the potential of triggering racial tension”, Gan emphasized.

Gan hoped that the government, especially those ministers holding portfolio related to national unity to learn from this incident and act more sensible to maintain the harmony relationship among Malaysians.

火箭不敢伸张正义,没为受害女生讨回公道。

火箭不敢伸张正义,还为种族主义者撑腰 最近有位满脑子充满种族主义色彩的男子,特地到超市的卖酒区找茬,录制及上载视频,分享他霸凌推销产品予非穆斯林的华裔女生,还对她出示中指手势,及在脸书帖文骂华裔是猪。

此举马上引起社会讨伐,各族人民皆为受害女生打抱不平,向来拥护正义、尊重女权的马华三机构全国多个区会,也在第一时间动员到各地警局举报那位男子的过分行径,为受害女生讨回公道。

当全民为正义发声时,火箭领袖们却出奇的安静;当马华与人民站在同一阵线维护女权时,火箭的女性人民代议士却在这方面噤若寒蝉,为什么?是不是因为肇事者来自国内最大族群,因此,火箭为了选票考量,选择不敢出声?

在马华与举国人民一面倒力数肇事者的不是之后,身为执政党的火箭知道,继续憋下去已不是办法,才勉为其难的由甲洞国会议员林立迎站出来应付。 不过,大家可别高兴得太早,因为林立迎的出现并不是为受害女生说句公道话,而是毛遂自荐当和事佬,想安排受害女生与该行为狂妄的种族主义份子握手言好。林立迎还透露,火箭会特地安排律师协助该男子。

马青雪兰莪州团对于林立迎不分青红皂白的举动感到愤怒!身为律师的林立迎,理应比一般人更懂得法律,他不但没支持受害者,还高调宣布支援肇事者。这种护短的做法,根本不是解决问题的途径;相反的,这样做将给特定族群蠢蠢欲动的种族主义份子传达错误的讯息,为他们壮胆,让他们认为,无论如何践踏他族尊严,也会有火箭的国会议员替他们撑腰,就算受害者与火箭国会议员属于同样肤色也不必担心,因为火箭领袖们一定站在国内最大族群这一边。

林立迎身为执政党的国会议员,正确的做法,应该是向妇女、家庭及社会发展部部长反映此事,让拿督斯里旺阿兹莎部长采取适当的行动对付肇事者。林立迎并没有这样做,反而当起和事佬,还为肇事者提供法律援助;这是哪门子的道理?

把焦点转向教育部副部长张念群,当大家以为与受害者同样是女性的她,应该会对此事说一些像样的话时,她却提醒大家不要将肇事者的子女拖下水,因为小朋友是无辜的。 张念群的言论实在令人大跌眼镜,因为她不敢声讨肇事者,还无中生有的吩咐大家别欺负肇事者的孩子。

至今并没人攻击肇事者的家人,张念群发出这个颠倒是非的言论,其居心何在?张念群为肇事者家人着想,却完全不在乎受害者的感受;她的言论形同在受害者的伤口上撒盐。

从火箭应对这个案件的态度来看,不难看出火箭领袖们,为了捞取国内最大族群的支持,会毫不犹豫的出卖任何其他族群。
