‘Pariah?’ Watch this YouTube & see who says the word

From 3:57 onwards

“Sangat hina kehidupan mereka di dalam negeri mereka. Kasta pariah ini telah dibawa oleh Inggeris ke dalam negara kita … kehidupan yang mereka nikmati di sini seribu kali ganda lebih baik daripada … negara merempat, naik bas, tak pakai baju, tak pakai seluar.”

From Hartal’s posting on April 28, 2010:

Dr Asri would dearly like to promote himself as an intellectual thinker. But he falls short when he adopts the typical Ketuanan Melayu pseudo-superiority complex where he refuses to see issues as they are on ground level.

If [Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin] cannot see through such simple issues, he cannot be considered an intellectual, much less advocate intellectual change.

Sasterawan Negara Abdullah Hussain and his simple-minded book ‘Interlok’ (that students are forced to swallow and regurgitate as an exam food) stereotype the Indians and Chinese.

What else is forced down the throats of the young?

School text that

  • favour one race
  • favour one religion
  • use derogatory term of ‘pendatang asing’
  • brainwash from the primary level onwards
  • lead to biased exam questions (History paper/PMR)

    Who the **** does this Asri think he is? Up to now I thought he was a moderate and a good guy. But here the bastard is full of venom and hate. He stinks to kingdom come. I shit on his face!! (Sorry,have never used such language in my comments. But after listening to the crap that he was talking, I just couldn’t help it!)

    Dear Dr Asri, I dun understand, what kind of scholar r u, u say ur religion is fair to all but u ridicule other religions and race , first of all, I guess you got ur facts all wrong, not all came to then Malaya were Pariah caste, many of them as teachers and government servants, i dun know what is your age group but in the early 50’s to 80’s,Malays too were in hardcore poverty bracket,I know u from “The mudah lupa” gang, Indians toiled to construct rail roads and estates, many of them had also died due to illness, the temples were built in rural areas then (now cities) even before u ancestors migrated from Indonesia, therefore there were no protest then, know u are rich all because the other races especially Chinese paid hefty sums as taxes, so you could run down others using all kind of derogatory words knowing that u have the ultimate power n others just have to tow the line as minority , furthermore, u said there were discrimination against certain religion in India but these kind of outcries are not only heard in India but China, Isreal, UK,USA, Thailand, Filipina etc, if you kind of people are majority in certain country then u tend surpress others,look at Pakistan, Indonesia and Afghan, I don’ like to mention any religion as I respect each and every one of it although for u, my religion is not perfect as yours, not like you who goes around condeming others, claiming yourself as holier than thou, I hope u do more revision like studying on Srivijaya, Majapahit,Air Langga kingdom to broaden ur thinking capacity. Your comments are also detrimental to our PM and DPM’s visions to see a united nation. PS..I have been to India, the population is too huge. so u could see people sleeping on roadside and so on and nothing to do with caste, I dun know which year u visited India, I made my trip to all major Indian cities in 2010, no one mention about caste. furthemore don’t relate M’sian Indians with India Indians, do we compare u with Indonesians?, we r all children of this soil after independence.

HANG TAK ADA HAK UNTUK BERCAKAP MENGENAI KAUM DAN AGAMA LAIN SEPERTI KAMI TIDAK BERHAK BERCAKAP ATAU KOMEN TENTANG AGAMA KAMU. ADAKAH MAK ATAU BAPA KAMU DATANG DARI KAUM PARIAH DAN MENJELASKAN KAMU TENTANG APA YANG KAMU KATAKAN ITU. KALAU ORANG BAGI HANG MEJA, MIKE DAN AIR DAN DUDUK KELILING HANG, JANGANLAH HANG MEMPERBODOHKAN MEREKA DENGAN MENCERITAKAN PERKARA-PERKARA YANG TAK BERFAEDAH.

    Intellectual? When compared to a bunch of simians from the ruling party; yes.

    Malaysia is a secular state* lets not pay too much heed to these types of “intellectuals” lest they think themselves more relevant than they actually are.

    *It should be treason to state otherwise.

  5. infansolaris says:

    Speaking about ‘pariah’ being used as a derogatory term for Indians, log into this local Chinese dominated forum (http://renotalk.20.forumer.com/index.php) and check out it’s Non Reno Talk forum. The hypocrites there whine incessantly about BN/UMNO sponsored racism while routinely referring to Indians as ‘keling pariah’s’ and Malay’s as lazy racists among other things. So much for 1Malaysia.

  6. leekh says:

    I am truly disappointed! Thoroughly shocked! You can see the typical racial rhetoric coming through! What a farce!!

  7. rocky says:

    my god. seems he studied history so well that all the Indians came here are pariahs. didn’t the pariahs contribute to the nation building. you know the civil servants run by the pariahs were much cleaner than now. I so disappointed with him. he expects Indians to be grateful to be here and accept everything cos India is far worse. well done, this is how a muslims scholar thinks.

  8. Sam says:

    I’ve heard both sides to this guy from people close to him. But today I have made up my mind.

  9. infansolaris says:

    Is this racist low life still a columnist with Malaysiakini.com? If so, Steven and Premesh had better get their priorities right.

    Asri’s specialty is Taqiyyah. He is a devotee of
    other disingenuous liars like Tariq Ramadan
    and Mahathir…
