Bukan isu Islam lawan Hindu

Kejadian perobohan kuil, masjid, surau, rumah setinggan semakin rancak dilakukan oleh pihak berkuasa kebelakangan ini. Semakin banyak juga tulisan beremosi di Internet yang menggambarkan kemarahan rakyat. Saya sangat sedih dan marah dengan tindakan kerajaan yang terus mendikriminasi rakyat negara ini.

Dalam banyak kejadian, pemerintah sebenarnya hanya mahu memenuhi kehendak pihak pemilik modal (contoh: syarikat pemaju tanah) dan melupakan kesusahan/tuntutan rakyat, seperti yang berlaku di Kampung Rimba Jaya dan Kampung Berembang.

Saya fikir, kesusahan yang kita alami sekarang ini bukanlah pertentangan antara agama Islam lawan Hindu. Keperitan ini juga tidak ada kaitan dengan sengketa antara kaum India, Melayu, Cina, Iban, Kadazan, Jakun dan lain lain. Musuh orang Melayu bukan orang India atau Cina. Musuh rakyat bukan agama Islam atau Kristian.

Musuh sebenar rakyat Malaysia adalah kenaikan harga minyak, kenaikan kadar bayaran tol, penyelewengan, rasuah, pembohongan media dan sebagainya. Gejala-gejala inilah yang telah menyebabkan kita semua terpaksa hidup dalam kesusahan yang perit.

Semua kesusahan dan keperitan hidup ini adalah akibat pemimpin yang pentingkan kekayaan dan kuasa. Kerana itulah, mereka seringkali memihak kepada kepentingan para pemodal (termasuk syarikat pemaju tanah) dan tidak mahu memperdulikan tuntutan rakyat.

Mahu lawan BN tidak semestinya dengan cara tidak mengundi calon mereka semasa pilihanraya sahaja. Undi pembangkang? Bersih (Gabungan Pilihanraya Bersih dan Adil) telah menyatakan bahawa pilihanraya di Malaysia tidak adil. Memang benar. Jadi, pilihanraya mungkin tidak akan memberi harapan besar untuk kita memberi pengajaran kepada Barisan Nasional (BN), selagi sistem pilihanraya tidak mengalami proses reformasi.

Lagipun, sudah tentu BN akan tahu lebih awal apabila mereka dapat dikalahkan melalui proses pilihanraya, dan pasti awal-awal lagi pilihanraya akan mereka haramkan.

Jadi, kita mesti guna cara lain untuk kalahkan BN. Bagaimana?

Boikot pilihanraya? Ya, boikot pilihanraya adalah satu kaedah berkesan dan ditakuti oleh pemerintah. Dengan syarat, majoriti rakyat (mungkin 50 peratus) berdegil tidak mahu turun mengundi dan hanya calon dari BN yang masuk bertanding. BN akan menang 100 peratus tetapi tanpa legitimasi dan kemenangan itu dapat dianggap sebagai tidak bermoral.

Ada satu cara lagi. Dalam sejarah negara kita, kaedah dan strategik politik ini pernah digunakan oleh rakyat negara ini ketika menentang British pada tahun 1940 an dahulu. Mereka melawan dengan melancarkan ‘Hartal’.

Hartal adalah tindakan mogok sebagai menghindari tindakan kekerasan atau keganasan. Pada 20 Oktober 1947, Hartal telah berjaya dilakukan di seluruh Malaya. Dilaporkan British telah mengalami kerugian berpuluh ribu dollar akibat Hartal itu. Hartal adalah punca sebenar British mahu memberi kemerdekaan kepada Malaya.

Sebenarnya, Hartal yang bermakna mogok juga, adalah senjata utama perlawanan rakyat India yang diketuai Mahatma Gandhi ketika melawan British di India dahulu. Mari kita cari “ada apa dengan Hartal”.

    No radical change on the plane of history is possible without crime. ~Hermann Keyserling

    When leaders act contrary to conscience, we must act contrary to leaders. ~Veterans Fast for Life

    It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong. ~Voltaire

    If… the machine of government… is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. ~Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobediance, 1849

    You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it. ~Malcolm X

    Human history begins with man’s act of disobedience which is at the very same time the beginning of his freedom and development of his reason. ~Erich Fromm, Psychoanalysis and Religion

    Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn’t. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may. ~Mark Twain

    Integrity has no need of rules. ~Albert Camus

    If we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable. ~Louis D. Brandeis

    Laws are only words written on paper, words that change on society’s whim and are interpreted differently daily by politicians, lawyers, judges, and policemen. Anyone who believes that all laws should always be obeyed would have made a fine slave catcher. Anyone who believes that all laws are applied equally, despite race, religion, or economic status, is a fool. ~John J. Miller, And Hope to Die

    Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the virtues, is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest and commonest of the vices. ~George Bernard Shaw, Maxims for Revolutionists

    Every actual state is corrupt. Good men must not obey laws too well. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was “illegal.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” Why We Can’t Wait, 1963

    We cannot, by total reliance on law, escape the duty to judge right and wrong…. There are good laws and there are occasionally bad laws, and it conforms to the highest traditions of a free society to offer resistance to bad laws, and to disobey them. ~Alexander Bickel

    It is necessary to distinguish between the virtue and the vice of obedience. ~Lemuel K. Washburn, Is The Bible Worth Reading And Other Essays, 1911

    I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not so desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. ~Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience, 1849

    As long as the world shall last there will be wrongs, and if no man objected and no man rebelled, those wrongs would last forever. ~Clarence Darrow

    It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do. ~Edmund Burke, Second Speech on Conciliation, 1775

    I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. ~Robert A. Heinlein, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

    Ordinarily, a person leaving a courtroom with a conviction behind him would wear a somber face. But I left with a smile. I knew that I was a convicted criminal, but I was proud of my crime. ~Martin Luther King, Jr., March 22, 1956

    If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality. ~Bishop Desmond Tutu

    It is not a man’s duty, as a matter of course, to devote himself to the eradication of any, even the most enormous wrong; he may still properly have other concerns to engage him; but it is his duty, at least, to wash his hands of it, and, if he gives it no thought longer, not to give it practically his support. If I devote myself to other pursuits and contemplations, I must first see, at least, that I do not pursue them sitting upon another man’s shoulders. ~Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience
