QUIET FURY grips Sabah & S'wak over Putrajaya’s 55-years Merdeka claim
'The insensitive ignoramuses have done it again! The buntings and billboards, shipped in from Putrajaya, brazenly proclaim 55 years of Merdeka throughout the length and breadth of Sabah and Sarawak. This is the Mother of All Bullshit in Sabah and Sarawak.'
'Obviously, it’s Merdeka for Peninsular Malaysia or Malaya which became independent of British colonial rule of a sort on 31 Aug, 1957. The revisionists are claiming that the British never really colonised Malaya – the land of the Orang Asal i.e. the Orang Asli -- which they in fact hacked away from the Thai kingdom, after two wars with Bangkok, to plant rubber and mine tin. But that’s another story.'
'That i.e. 1957 being the case, why flaunt it in Sabah and Sarawak and expect the long-suffering people there to share in the joy of the people of Malaya in being free of colonialism and imperialism?
Putrajaya maintains the fiction that Sabah, Sarawak free in 1957
If Putrajaya wants to maintain the fiction that Sabah and Sarawak too became free on 31 Aug, 1957, the history books tell us otherwise.'
'Sabah in fact became independent only six years later i.e. on 31 Aug, 1963 while Sarawak a little earlier than its neighbouring sister country in Borneo i.e. on 22 July, 1963. This was in line with the recommendations of the 24-Nation UN Decolonization Committee.'
'Both countries wanted to enjoy a period of freedom before considering again the idea of a new Federation including Malaya, Singapore, Brunei, Sabah and Sarawak. The idea was being relented pushed in their faces by the British and the Malayans acting in cahoots to protect the former’s commercial empire in the territories.'
'On 16 Sept, 1963, a Black Day known as Malaysia Day, the two Borneo states were dragged into a so-called Malaysia without a referendum being held to ascertain the wishes of the people.
The history books have subsequently gone on to claim that “Sabah dan Sarawak mencapai Merdeka melalui Malaysia”. How can that be the case when both states were already independent on 31 Aug, 1963 and 22 July, 1963 respectively before the advent of Malaysia?
Singapore became a member of this so-called Malaysia as well but apparently willingly since it was already a part of Malaya in every sense of the term and divided only by a narrow causeway.
Brunei stayed out at the 11th hour, insisting on genuine independence first, before considering if at all the idea of the Malaysia concept.'
'Sabah, Sarawak not allowed to leave “Malaysia” like Singapore
Brunei only became independent on 1 Jan, 1984 after much pushing by Putrajaya who, eyeing the oil and gas riches of the sultanate, hoped it would became a member of the Malaysian Federation. Bandar Seri Begawan would have none of it, considering the tragic fate of Sabah and Sarawak in “Malaysia”, and began holding regular joint military exercises with Singapore which was allowed to train for jungle warfare in the sultanate.'
'The fate of Sabah and Sarawak, briefly, were sealed in 1965 when Singapore left the Federation. The two states were not allowed to exercise any option like Singapore on whether to stay or leave the Federation. Sabah Chief Minister Donald Stephens, who raised the issue, was packed off into exile in Australia as High Commissioner to that country.'
