40 trips around the sun
Is the earth ready to forgive thy sins?

Must we invoke thy deadly name
over and over and over again?
like a spinning wheel
will it ever stop?
generations come, they leave
yet thy cruelty remains intact

Must we invoke thy bloody name
when all that comes to mind are these:
massacre. blood. tears.
anger. rage. death.
keris. umno. tun razak. nep?

Is it time yet to bury thee
within the dungeons of our minds
Shall we throw away the keys
to the door that opens a thousand wounds

Or should we always keep them open?
its sight to remind us all
there’s a limit to human patience
that amidst a borderless world
are boundaries to tolerance

Thy face is but a blur and yet
40 years and still thy name
taste like bitter portion on our tongues
churn our stomachs till they bleed.

    The May 13 incident as personally related by Tunku Abdul Rahman, the First Prime Minister of Malaya/Malaysia and Bapa Merdeka

    The happenings in Perak doesnt surprise any analyst that BN will use the same tactics of the opposition to wrest control of the local government. Now they are crying for a state election. What if they succeeded at the national government level persuading MPs to hop over? Will they cry for another election??? Memang lah. Pakatan should be renamed PAKATAN BUNTUT !!!!!

    if you have a family of 4 in ur house, then a mamak negro busted in with 10 of his theives and takes over ur house, what do you call this? robbery? is this what you want in Malaysia?

    then ur whole family will be kicked out of your own house. i wonders how the mamak negro feels if someone does that to his family?

    is that what u want from your government?

    A catarrhsis of sorts, Susan?
    Unfortunately this cataclysm is burned deep into the psyche of the old dogs like me – but it doesn’t really borther me much nowadays, except when i see the deep sociocultural divide that has and is happening to our younger generations.
    In those days, before 05-13, every race and religion was respected by each other and we were truly 1Malaysia – never to come again in my lifetime.
    Irregardless of what some say about forgiveness, i forgive but not necessarily forget. Vengence – never.
    In fact, i think this black day in history should be kept in posterity within the education system to enable the young ‘uns to realize that we still have a great deal of ‘social’ engineering to do – which must never be based on ethnicity, creed or colour, but on need.
    Under the present political circumstances, this will not happen – there is no will – but we must have faith, hope and love. Agape.

  12. wits0 says:

    Menyalak-er, the deep sociocultural divide is part of the consequence of denying accountability because they(the-power-that-be) can. The perpetrators (some of whom are still around) were never held into account for what they did and instead rewarded with fame and fortune.

    It’s not about vengeance but simply justice. This is a a great infraction against the moral law quite universally acknowledged An indulgent perversion that has become like an enforced acceptance in this land when it is clearly not acceptable in a moral universe. So what “blessings” should one expect?

    I like the article by Dr. Farish A Noor on ‘A million 13 Mays 12 May 09 : 4.24PM.’

    I lived in the epicenter of May13, 1969. I can associated deeply with what he wrote. I always have my suspicion that the killings were somehow targeted only at the fringes of our society where the actual deaths could be easily forgotten and not compensated. May13 massacre was not widespread and there was no official body count (I think). But the image and message of M13 is widespread. All for the purpose that some can politicize on the occasion and others can romanticize like it is some sort of a love affair in the three kingdoms. M13 selective murdering only serves to glue together the pieces some desired to be called history. Shameful. If Perak debacle drags on, both sides are actually guilty of looking out for themselves only.

  19. BornMalaysian says:

    Susan, how about the politicians, community leaders and opinion shapers like yourself propose that May 13 becomes a public holiday in Malaysia, called Unity Day, a special day that celebrates all things Malaysian. A day of celebration of Malaysian culture, art, innovations, talks by Malaysian experts, concerts, movies, exhibitions, food fairs, etc. A day for Malaysians to reaffirm its commitment to 1Malaysia. A day for reflection on the lessons of history so that we can move forward together as one. A day for all Malaysians to mingle, interact and celebrate our unique cultural diversity. It could even become a tourist attraction like Oktoberfest in Germany! I hope that I will live long enough to see Unity Day take place in Malaysia.

    Happy May 13!

    P.S. Studies show that racial discrimination is largely caused by lack of education and lack of interaction between people of different racial and cultural backgrounds. Studies show that people with neighbours of a different race and culture are much less likely to be racists.

  20. Look at “all” the coments Najib makes in the media…!!!

    Politicians must work for the people, look into their plight, obey the law, see to their needs, go to the “ground”, the rakyat comes “first”, etc…, etc…………………………….

    All these “chicken” talk lah…! Only sweetness in the bucket. But when you wanna eat it, it’s “full” of worms………………….!!!!!

    It is only right to have a “fresh” election in Perak. It “must” go back to the rakyat….!
    Why is Najib & BN goons sooo…….. stubborn about it, as if Perak belongs to them….?????????
    Why are they soooo………….. desperate on clinging on to power….??????????????

    Are they saying that the rakyat has “NO” rights to vote………???

    How long more is The Perak Sultan gonna allow all this “drama”…..?????
    Najib already said its up to The Sultan……..!!

    The wheel has come a full circle, but history never really repeats itself.
    March 8, 2008 was in a way, a rematch of the political events leading to May 13, 1969. Again, there is a large proportion of the population who feel marginalised.

    But this time it was different. The opposition to BN is a true rainbow coalition. And the correct message filtered down to the unhappy masses – it is Barisan Nasional and its cronies who are marginalising you, not your fellow citizens of other races.

    The electorate, in a small way, put aside BN’s sub-text (and not-so subtle) message for 40 years that if they lose power in any way, May 13 will recurr.

    The truth about May 13, 1969 has to come out someday. Not for revenge, not for punishment, but just to let the sunshine in.

    Its just one of the things that needs to be on PR’s Agenda if it ever gains the majority in the Parliament.
    I have no hope ever that UMNO-BN will allow that dark corner to be lighted up. Definitely not under Tun Razak’s son.

    we should not looking or finding ways or the key to get into the “dungeons of our mind” on this bitter incident.

    i was a small boy at the time. i can’t figure out what actually was going on. but i heard my uncle car was bashed in Jalan Sg Besi. He and his family were scared to death. Luckily there was this good samaritan who pleaded the others to let the malay family go.

    That’s why i resent zionist, racist, racial prowess or racial dorminance….

    Who really remember 13May? Those above 55years old..still many. How many of these 55 years were in the effected towns?..not many. How many 55 years in the effected towns were at the effected areas?…a hand full. How many at the effected areas were really effected?…hardly any, now. So who really remember 13May? It was dead and buried. 13May is just a ghost still lingering around us; like Tuya’s ghost still haunting around ‘them’.

    May 13
    The 40th year of our Black history
    Clashes of political divide
    Clashes of racial politics

    May 13
    The saddest history in our times
    We need to remember
    When racial tension high
    Events may not be controlled

    May 13
    Racial politics isn’t the game
    It teaches us to know its footprints
    Of intolerance of our diversity
    Of many colours one nation

    May 13
    It should be buried
    In history we learn
    No more walking there again
    We are one people with many colours

    Let us pray
    For history make us strong
    Knowing our faults
    Saying grace to our God

  26. whispering9 says:

    Actually bee yong, very few in the fifties have seen the real May13. The effect was only magnified by the long curfew imposed during that time. May 13 is exactly like Altantuya ghost. With the internet and SMS, it is almost impossible to transmute another May13 without getting caught as the culprits behind the ploy. Yeah….remember May13 by hugging someone today, instead of shivering in trepidation. As long as May13 is no longer used by politicians and their goons, I guess the ghosts of May13 can rest.🙂

    -BornMalaysian

    Malaysia is an exception. Racism is cultivated by the BN and imposed on the rakyat. With all the social engineering, the BN has been able to move out non-malays into malay areas, and vice versa.
    So in most areas the malays outnumber the nons and the latter live in fear at the next “round”-like Kg. Medan, S`gor.

  28. kittykat46 says:

    There was surprisingly frank reporting and disgusting photographs which made it into the international wire services before foreign correspondents were booted out. Again, these correspondents only saw a small part of what happened.

    Those reports are on microfilm archives in major newspapers overseas. The Daily Telegraph, Times London, Sydney Morning Herald, Melbourne Age. Those of you who are overseas in UK or Australia can easily access them in public libraries. Look up May 14 – May 21, 1969.

    Plenty there, stuff which BN doesn’t want you to know.

    Or some would say its better for you not to know.

    May 13, 1969 is like an old, dark family quarrel. Its always going to be a pain until somebody has an honest airing about it.

    Why talk May 13? Our PM is go out his way to embrase the chinese the indian and others. Even the singhs praise him! He do all thing to unite us. Just becous MB grant appeal by judge evrybody talk May 13 is finish long long time. Now we do by 2008 election aredy it show Aljuburi and pkr is weak even if there many Indian and chinese in Perak. PKR not strong is the thing. No need for election.

    Did you know kk46, from where I stayed down river Klang…you don’t have to scan microfilms for the corpses? During that period of M13, I was a very young missionary to the poorer segment of society and even I could discern that the poor, nameless and homeless Malaysians were the innocent murdered victims while politicians and the higher echelon of society only have tales of narrow escapes to tell. Shameful…and ‘cos of such scenes, I appreciated TDM practical approaches and to some extent ISA. Yeah…I lost faith in DAP & Gerakan on that day until, of course, today where I wish for a 2 party system. If PR is confident of winning Perak and maintain status quo, they should take care of some very lansi and unloyal goons amongst themselves. Gotta to pack and travel. Talk again later.

    “Our PM is go out his way to embrase the chinese the indian and others.”

    Funny porkypines.
    GE Najis was head of BN election machinery (dopey was sleeping). And he did fantastically compared to Dopey`s earlier performance. Since GE Najis has won only 1 election and lost all the others – after spending heavily. Now he is afraid to for elections.

    So, now he goes like a stray cat to other people`s places of worship on their auspicious days knowing fully well that he will not be thrown out. In this he is assisted by KTK, MCA, MIC, & his propaganda ministry to bribe his way into worship houses.

  36. wits0 says:

    No, Whispering9, the ghosts of May13 cannot rest because they have not been properly exorcised. Umno/bn have also used it to intimidate the people for so many past decades whereas we know darn well who were responsible, who deliberately ordered the police not to attempt to stop it or even to try, willing as some were. It was like a multi-faceted crime committed against the people in its execution and covered up by repulsive propaganda afterwards.

  37. Can anyone agree with Mohamat Rahmat? Just a thouhgt... says:

    //Mohamed added that from the social perspective, the race problems today mirrored that of 1969. On the surface, the tensions appear to be between the Malays and Chinese, but actually, the two communities had been stirred up by the Indians, just like now with the Hindraf movement.//

    But I guess M. Rahmat may be irrelevant, my view.

  39. whispering9 says:

    ….wits0, just a short reply. It is really just wishful thinking on my part. Just like Altantuya Ghost, May13 Ghosts will never rest. There will be no exposé like what you want. Anyway, thanks to the net, many people are begining to understand the complexion of human and her histories. We must learn to juggle it so that it serves the larger good. Bye2 until 2nite.

  40. wits0 says:

    Wan’t it a mamakkutty who wrote “The Malay Dilemma” and circulated that around clandestinely after it was banned by TAR? Were the “facts” actually correct? They were not, even.

    The problem is not the indians but the indian muslims, who have been riotous not only in India, but in Malaya even before in-depend-ance. Zambrey is a mamaq who has lived to the traditions.

    Hindraf is not the threat. It was a manifestation of an awakening sorely overdue after Rahmat`s suppression. Goebbels never talked bad of Germany, how can propaganda master Rahmat talk bad of the despicable UMNO he has/is been part of?

  42. kittykat46 says:

    Whispering9,
    “I appreciated TDM practical approaches and to some extent ISA”

    In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, the “Firemen” are actually people whose job is to light fires.

    Razak and Mahathir were the Firemen, only later they came dressed up as Bomba.
    That’s partly why the NEP is so deformed and yucky these days…

  43. govin says:

    The problm also was Rahmat`s party`s jailing of DSAI which was an awakening of sorts for malays.
    Rahmat should also have been investigated a long time ago.

  44. wits0 says:

    It seems unfair to seemingly tar the entire mamak community but the evidence seems to mount that many of them celup malays have been the source of much agitations for a very long time – not the least the recent infamy in the Perak DUN.

    There is something with their rooted jealousy of chinese biz from a long time back. And since mahakutty’s ascendency their sh*t stirring clamoring got louder and louder. Is it a wonder that a recent poll at RPK’s blog about boycotting ’em was voted resoundingly in the affirmative.

    How long can you hide your hand?

    Dear Wispering9 May13 at 9.07a.m.

  46. ktteokt says:

    May 13 was the biggest disgrace to the BN government but I find that these people, especially those from UMNO seemed to be so proud of it! And despite repeated reminders from the government itself not to use May 13 as a threat, these idiots from BN still use it at ceramahs during GEs! This is total defiance of what the government is trying to ban!

  47. kittykat46 says:

    They have been trying to be “More Malay than Malays” ever since Madhatter opened up UMNO to their membership.
    Of course, the other factor is many of them have better education and simply more bloody-minded ambitious than the traditional Malays, so they have, in a couple of decades, become over-represented in UMNO’s upper echelons.
    A lot of the UMNO contractors living off government largesse belong to this category.

  48. wits0 says:

    “A lot of the UMNO contractors living off government largesse belong to this category.”

    A fine Example:
    Just about a decade and a half ago, in the Ipoh General Hospital was an old multi-racial canteen in the old hospital doing a merry business at very reasonable price for quite a while.

    Then came a new canteen built in the new hospital polyclinic section and it was contracted to a mamak who already got the Ipoh Airport contract.

    The old canteen closed. Overnight, the price doubled, choice disappeared and service crashed ; many hospital staffs who are abled to, opted to drive down to Cockman street nearby to take their lunch. Damnation!

  49. kandan says:

    Mohd Rahmat I agree Indian muslims are a nuisance to the country.

    Even as an Indian I dont eat mamaq food, also my friends are slowly turning away. I also dont shop at mydin, and agree mamaqs should be boycotted until they learn to behave themselves.

  50. machitam says:

    wits0,
    You had mentioned the book “The Malay Dilemma” wrote by TDM. TDM wrote the book after the May 13 1969. i manged to buy the book right after the ban was lifted..in the 70’s. ironically, though i despise TDM, in the book he was laid down on the living structure of the various races. i don’t see any racism or anything to do with that….i mean his thinking in the book back then. Again, it should be the malays who should be “angry” about the book. and i see why the book was banned by Tunku. that was TDM back then. after he was sacked from UMNO..

  51. logkaya says:

    …. Why has this thing happened? The answer lies in the culture of the Malays. They are laid-back and prone to take the easy way out. And the easy way out is to sell off whatever they get and ask for more. This is their culture. Working hard, taking risks and being patient is not a part of their culture. It should be remembered that in the past the Malays were not prepared to take up the jobs created by the colonial powers in their effort to exploit the country.

    Because the Malays were not prepared to work in rubber estates and the mines, the Indians and Chinese were brought in. At one time, the migrants outnumbered the Malays. Had they continued to outnumber the Malays, independent Malaya would be like independent Singapore.

    But the Malays have apparently learnt nothing from the near loss of their country in the past. Today, they are still unwilling to work and foreign workers are again flooding the country. And because they are not equipping themselves with the necessary education and skills, they have continued to depend on others. Their political dominance will protect them for a time. But that dominance is fading very fast as they quarrel among themselves and break up into small ineffective groups. Their numerical superiority means less today than at the time of Independence. ….

    Mac, then it was M’Kutty’s earlier circulated writing that was banned by TAR. In ’68 itself there were whispered reports of such being circulated around. Little doubt actual book was derived from some of these earlier writings.

    If you were chinese and not a towkay or advantaged but from a none too well off working background, how would you feel about those racist things that M asserted? If he meant to just attack the bourgeois, why must he use racism and with such insulting false pathos?

    The political calculation behind 513 was Tong Rosak and Mahakutty’s thirst for power – which they could only get by removing Tunku from the equation.
    Tunku was a true Bangsa Malaysia, not the fake 1Malaysia which Tong Rosak’s beget is trying to peddle.

    If not for the shit-stirring by these extremist politicians and their goons, race relations in the 1960’s were actually somewhat better than it is today. Among the middle-class, at least, there was plenty of interaction. Even in the 1970’s my parents had long-time Malay Muslim friends who had no problems with staying overnight in our home when they were in town. It won’t happen today.

  57. machitam says:

    wits0,
    i don’t think that some of TDM earlier writings were compiled into the book MD. but i think TDM thoughts (after refining) were put into MD(there are some here posted by logkaya. in MD, TDM were as if “motivating” Tunku and the malays at large that “racial tension” and unrest were cause by the wide gap between the mains races i.e Malay, Chinese & Indian. The Malays were mostly involved in the civil service, Army and police and in agricultral(tanam padi) in the rural areas(kampong) wheres the Chinese were very much involve in commerce in urban areas. this is what is term as racial polarisation….
    therefore the birth of NEP was to narrow the gap between the races and the result will contribute to racial harmony. but after 52 years…..do you think we should be what we are.
    currently, i don’t think there should be incitement and sentiment built up among the races unless we indulge into this. so let May 13 be bygones. let bury this racism and sentiment(tidak puas hati) among the races. we should be Malaysians!

During May13, we know for a fact that neither coalition back down and the baby was cleaved. G+@rakan left the victorious Opposition coalition with her share of the bloody cadever and joined BN. So frogging actually started much earlier.

    “..the birth of NEP was to narrow the gap between the races.. ” – macitam.

    Sure, nothing wrong per se. Then in the early seventies also was asserted, “in a way that no one race would feel a sense of deprivation”. Sounded nice! I knew it can’t be. It didn’t.

    We have seen this became a lie to this day. It has culminated in Hindraf lately and for decades how nons have been left out of govt service and this discrimination shows no signs of easing, only increasing.

    You know those few non malay applicants were selected for teacher’s training, and nursing e.g. It would be at the end of the season when the places hasn’t been taken up by bumis. After SPM a bumi may have as much as a dozen offers from institutions for training or jobs etc…plenty of choice. Only when towards the end of the season would a a few places be thrown to the nons. How fair is this? Yet it has been so for a long time. The MSM will not report this. The PSD knows this, the hospital undertaking the medical examinations know this.

    Whispering9,
    The current Perak debacle is many things, but it will not ignite another racial riot.

    The fundamental difference between March 8, 2008 and May 10, 1969 is the Opposition to BN is now a rainbow coalition. PR has many weaknesses, but race-based it is not.

    In 1969 UMNO successfully painted the political divide as Malays vs. Nons.
    UMNO had been running a blatantly racist campaign in rural areas in the recent Bukit Gantang by-election, but it did not work.
    It is true that a majority of Malays still support UMNO, but it is only a slim majority.

    There a very large minority of Malays who understand this is a political and legal issue, not a race issue.
    Anwar Ibrahim is a credible leader, Nizar is a credible leader, so is Nik Aziz.
    The “race card” is probably going to be around forever, but it has lost much of its sting.

    We can expect the continuation of finger pointing from bn/umno just because they can never face the truth and/or their own malice. Everything is like a one-way street entitlement – as with wild finger pointing.

    My dear Kenyan brothers back at home, why don’t we beat the porcupines at their own game by playing it their way? Let’s grow maize specifically to feed them and then harvest them instead of the maize! You can all see the international market below! After all the price of maize is not good and we can’t export as much as we could export porcupine! Imagine this headline: Porcupine meat beats tea as the leading Kenyan export! “Nungunungu Hoyeeeee!”

    Roasted, then dried porcupine meat is a strong aphrodisiac. After roasting, mix with oil, then heat up the oil. When it is cool, rub onto your skin and walk to the local bazaar/shopping centre and see the girls’ reaction! (and sometimes the guys!) Try it!

    No May 13, No “Ketuanan Melayu”

    It would seem to be a clear case of sedition when a political butterfly dressed up in hornet’s armour tried to revive the ghost of May 13 in the recent Umno general assembly, to the thunderous applause of all those present.

    Speeches during Umno general assemblies are more likely to be carefully orchestrated representations of their mainstream thinking, rather than the spontaneous cut and thrust of creative ideas. So we – who are excluded from the inner sanctum of Umno faithful – have to assume that their perennial call to arms is an integral part of Umno ideology. After all, May 13 was the cornerstone upon which the grand superstructure of the NEP had been erected for the past 35 years.

    What is May13? Race riots? Raial disturbances? Massacre? Genocide? Ethnic cleansing? Why call it May13 which is only just a calender date, a number? Is it a taboo?Are we still in denial? A denial of deaths, of mass murder? Why can’t we call it by its true name and look at its true face without turning our eyes away?

    History repeats itself if we have not learnt anything from it.

    I wouldn’t call 0513, anything of that, Gadfly (9:51pm).
    I would call it a criminal conspiracy hatched out of political desperation and expediency that went horribly wrong (or right, as the case may be).
    This caused the uncounted numbers of “death of the innocents”.
    This ‘amoking’, similar to beserking or bloodlust, is culturally tinged. In psychological terms it is an ‘absence’ of rationality, self control and humanity. It is a myth born out of necessity.
    It was not all one sided, as i lived just a few kms. from kg baru/kerinchi, and saw the afterglow of the fires.
    Once the initial regiment was replaced by others less prone to this ‘madness’, the tables were turned.
    There were many areas in the city, that the malays could not enter, as witnessed by sdr. Machitam just now. Those 2 kampungs were shunned for decades by the chinese.
    No, it was not Rwanda nor Bosnia-Herz in physical sense but in spirit, they use that as a threat for 40yrs. to cow the masses.
    It is time to let go…

    Malaysia Ethnic Cleansing, Genocide etc.
    We have been killed before
    We were killed again
    We are promised mass death at every opportunity
    We are asked to leave Malaysia regularly
    Our cultural and educations rights are choked
    UMNO government has not signed key international treaties – Malaysia is not a signatory of the Human Rights Declaration, not a signatory of International Criminal Court and not a signatory of United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.

    they are actually singing our tune !.

    some of them may claimed they dont play raceial politic and dont belive in one but the truth dosent look as they claim to be.
    are the players soolely to be blamed, i dont think soo.
    ask ourself truthfuly , are we really free ourself from etenic thinking and thought ?, some may say i do. the truth are not what we say , the truth is what we act to be.
    back to the polotical party , in the goverment or opposition they are singging to the tune that people like to hear to remain populer, they are just like salesman who say everyting is good about the produck indicating that wat we want.

    blaming other does not going to changed anything it just a relese of thought shadowing the inner truth

    http://www.thenutgraph.com/six-words-on-13-may

    Sorry, May 13 no longer scary.

    Myths no facts, lies no truth.

    Will we ever know its instigator?

    It was the day Malaysia bled.

    Be gone! Get lost! Good riddance!

    No reruns please. Love one another!

    40 years pass, it still hurts.

    Bury the past, move on please.

    Forget May 13, remember May 7!

    I could go on and on…🙂

  84. wits0 says:

    “Will we ever know its instigator?”

    This is a matter of justice
    So that the dead may rest in peace
    And the pall over our moral soul
    Be lifted with the lies banished
