Good news headline

Us & Them

No more?


Race info might be dropped from official forms

That's the best news I've read in a Malaysian newspaper for years.

Apparently, the government is studying a proposal to drop the column in official forms that require race information. This was announced by the DPM yesterday who also said that the pros and cons would have to be fully studied before a decision can be made. Okay, fair enough. It's a step in the right direction. Now, being the pessimist that I am the only thing that worries me is the announcement that the government is "STUDYING" the proposal. From past experience we know that they study real slow.

Niamah!!!

It's high time they drop the race columns .
When they do , nobody is ever gonna know what Tan Ah Kow's or Muthi A/L Patel's race are .

Theshi said...

Geez want to drop a category in the form also need study ah?

How many thousands now will this study cost?

What a bunch of monkeys. What next? A study whether there is a need to update H1N1 status? Or a study whether there is a need to do studies?

If they must know, can't they tell the race from the name of the person? Why ask anymore?

Perhaps there is the remotest chance that Ranjit Singh is a Chinese?

Why they didn't drop this requirement earlier is beyond me.

Trust me, nothing will come out of it!!!

Malaysia practices free speech, so anyone can say anything. Or is it not???

What about religion? That should be dropped first. Too many irrelevant info on all those forms.

Just the other day, I thought of waiting for that opportunity when I could defy the authority by leaving blank the column that says RACE in an official form.

Nevertheless, let's not get euphoric over this long overdue matter.

Good move, though, Jibby.

Folks, what if there are 2 caterogaries after their "study", bumi and non-bumi ? Is that counted as the same before ? Will bumi mean Melayu only or Muslims, wow, Indonesians, Nigerians , Indian Muslims, Chinese Muslims ,Bangladeshis, Pakistanis etc etc will all be happist if that happens, new "bumi" for them.

What A Lulu said...

you probably do not need to fill in your race in the form cos the government's servers are linked to NRD's and all they have to do is to key in your IC to update your race on their system
whitewash, nothing's changed

Stop selling his otak-otak yang busuk lah!

They will never study for good except evil. If they do, the sun will rise from the west (The day of Armageddon).

But, we shouldn't forget what the SOB Joker, Kh!nz!r J@nt@n has said,
Hari Khiamat, hanya dacing yang tinggal!

ooo crap....! i used to send the question to PKR why their membership application form still have this field of race, and the answer was it is just for demography purpose... now, are they too late to remove it from the form?

sootui2002 said...

Its so easy to tell the race from people's names. The only person I find difficult is Phua Chu Kang who happens to be Gurmit Singh!!!

Study?
What to study? How long for them to do that & how much money will be spent...????

Just strike it off lah...!
Simple as that !!

Study?
What study????????

michael said...

You can call me a cynic.

Every time the government comes out with a proposal like this, I'll dread about good money being wasted.

Imagine the number of forms that need to be reprinted just to leave out an entry.

Someone is going to make quite a bundle from this.

ahoo said...

This is a very serious matter and no wonder they need to study it seriously !!! What were they doing all these donkey years ? Sleeping or what ? Anyway, we are in bolihland where we have freedom of expression but what we express may curtail our freedom.

Likewise, they said we have freedom of speech but we will have no more freedom after the speech if we are not for them. This is the freedom our govt of the day gave us. Please vote with wisdom and elect only people who are able to work with the people and for the people and not politicians who are power hungry, greedy and no respect for the rule of law.

paul said...

If really implement, then reprinting forms is small matter lah.

But Pat, the biggest culprit is the mainstream media. Why they always mention race in their report? Why they segregate race when conducting polls? Why they show race composition during elections? & many more...

BTW my Mykad states my religion as Sikh! (I left it empty during application - contravenes Rukun Negara Rule No. 1!) Ha Ha Ha

Study slow? No, I beg to differ. Maybe study wrongly also. This also I disagree. Actually, the already concluded already. now they are trying to study the reasons to give us. Meanwhile, buy time la, show like they are forward thinking. We are into 21 st century and they still need to study race la, Hopeless case I say. Aiyah, just stick to it la, we no longer believe your honesty. Lets just call ourselves, malaysian malay, malaysian chinese, Malaysian indians, and Malaysian others. Who cares if the world laughs or think.

Didn't you guys already know? It's there in the forms so that preferential treatments can be appropriated.

Check out THE SUN - Citizen Nades, today's paper. Lower passing marks, hell, free fucking pass for imbeciles just because they happened to be born or filled up the correct race in the forms.

You could fucking die in hospitals being treated by imbeciles 'granted passes' by THE GOVT. You'll have no justice. This is coming from idiots and those professing to religious and holier than thou motherfuckers..

THIS COUNTRY IS GOING TO HELL! I'm leaving on a jet plane..

Dropping "race" from forms does not help if UMNO can still knows your race from your name. Cfgugfh Yap is Chinese. Who does not know Xcghft Singh race? Tricia Xsdfyul do indicate she is not Malay. Avbnm Netto is Indian, right? Can we Chinese use Malay name for our children? Or Instead of Abraham, can I register Ibrahim as my son's name?

amoker said...

Study - RM10 million
New forms - RM50 million project.

ONe month later, Malay NGOs come and protest. BN chicken out.

Forms? Delete from IC leh

What is the point of dropping race from forms? From yr name already know yr race. Unless u change yr name to something like Niamahrateoh or something similar as they do in Indonesia/Thailand. If your name is Patrick Teoh, or Teoh Some Thing, Muthu A/L Supra, even a moron will know yr race.

Like this also need to study. You know what study mean. Money spend. Just like money spend on teaching math science in english. After years of study now change to study how to fix it to old method. All involve money spend. Our tax pay. Real niamah shit
