Our citizens are being threatened to be skewered with sharp punji (bamboo) sticks and why are we not doing the same to Indonesians living in Malaysia?
Because we are too "nice" (read scared) as a nation and also not quite united: Malay, Chinese and Indian, well three major races which I considered now to be an anomaly in this land where going at each other throats is the name of the game everyday, lets us not pretend we are solidly united.
But wait! We did at one time in an instance when Malaysia was threatened by President Sukarno during the confrontation with Indonesia, with his famous cry to "squish Malaysia" or "ganyang Malaysia". That was the only time when I saw all the races banded together to tell Indonesians to come and try at their own peril.
I would like to see all the major races in this country to set up a similar "Indonesian sweeping" just to show how we are not so like to be treated as a proverbial softie when our people are being treated like animal to be hunted with sharp bamboo stick!
While we are at sweeping Indonesians in the city we must also check and stop: Africans running prostitution rings in the country, South American citizens running a hustle con game and stealing handbags from customers at such places as the Swensen, Chinese prostitutes from China plying their trade here, illegal Bangladeshis, Myanmarese, Vietnamese, Cambodians and to send them back where they come from....I can go on and on!
But we will not do all of the above, if the Indonesian government can stop its own blood thirsty vigilante groups going after our own!
If the Indonesian authority can assure its vigilante group will be dealt with harshly we will be happy. Meanwhile the other stuff that I mentioned above "while we are at it" the Malaysian authority can deal with them. It must be said that our government must "refreshed" the3 country to at least with a memory of how safe Malaysia once was, at least!
P.S. Meanwhile the "dalang", or the puppet master, here who paid the thugs in Indonesia to harass our citizens there into into cowering with so much fear must be dealt with quickly before more damage inflicted!
