True Meaning of Independence

Merdeka, merdeka, merdeka..

51 years ago Tunku Abdul Rahman, the 1st prime minister of Malaysia headed thousands of crowds at Stadium Merdeka chanting merdeka which literally means independence.

What is independence, are we independent when we abide to terms and conditions set up by colonials to please themselves? After all, the people who were chosen to lead our country were the people who were employed by the colonial, many at times much more colonial than the colonials themselves.

Are we independent when Malaya previously governed by Islam State with islamic jurisprudence, then post merdeka era we were governed by secular?

Are we independent when our religion, Islam is only dictated under shariah law which is a mere small part of the whole constitution?

People, we are not really independent until we only subjected to only one God, not to human nor to system created by human...

Think about it...

August, Independence Month for Malaysia

August comes again, this is an independence month for Malaysia. Malaysia obtained its independence from Great Britain on 31st August 1957.

Malaya, it was know then, was invaded by the Portuguese in 1511.

Then it was traded from one hand by Portuguese to Dutch, then Great Britain, then Japanese and lastly back to Great Britain till 1957.

After receiving its independence, Malaya was renamed Malaysia.

Everyday local TV station will screen "independence" movies. Favourites will always be Sargeant Hassan and Liutenant Adnan. These 2 individuals always potrayed as Malaysian Hero of independence.

Ironically these two individuals were actually serving under British Army, and of course the common people gullibly accepting this distorted notion.

Think again.. How can a person serving under British Army actually liberating our country from them. Ah Yes, they are fighting the against Japanese invasion. Right...

Where is the struggle of Tuk Janggut, Datuk Maharaja Lela, Sipuntum, Datu Mat Salleh, Tok Gajah, Mat Kilau, Abdul Rahman Limbong and many more.

In these sense I feel strongly that's why our new generation don't have patriotisme spirit as our forefathers because they were not educate to be so.

Till next time..
