Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim, ada pakai hotak kah?

This yet another Barisan Nasional tak pakai hotak proposal. WTF? They want to impose rules on all women just because our local police, customs, immigrations or whatever are inefficient? If it is drugs, go after the drug kingpins. How can they try to control women from travelling? I thought Rais Yatim was one of the more decent minister when he was in charge of the law ministry (or whatever post he held previously) but it seems that knowledge does not equal cow common sense.

KUALA KLAWANG: Local women intending to travel abroad alone may need family consent in a bid to prevent them from being used as “drug mules” by international syndicates.

Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said a proposal to this effect would be made soon to the Cabinet, following several incidents where women were used to smuggle drugs overseas.

Out of 119 cases of Malaysian women hauled up before foreign courts, 90% were linked to drugs, he said.

“Last night, my ministry, together with the Home Ministry, have jointly forwarded a report to the Cabinet on the matter.

(source : http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/5/4/nation/21149512&sec=nation)

This proposal is no different from trying to control women from going out of their homes because they can be victims to rapes and murders.

Stupidity beyond comprehension.

90% of the 119 Malaysian women who got caught probably deserved it because greed had got them there. They are going to be penalised, thrown into jail, given whatever maximum punishment. That’s their lessons. If others can learn from them, fine. If others still are gullible to do the drug trafficking, then, let them rot in jail. How can we sympathise with them and then, impose a law that covers ALL women.

Get real lah, Rais Yatim. These women are over 18 years of age and are old enough to decide. They need time to get the air-tickets, fly there and everything they do, they have ample time to think and ponder. If they still carry it out, we cannot save their arses because they are not innocent. They know what they are doing and if they suffer because of it, that’s life.

Now, I hope all the DAP women MPs screw Rais Yatim kau-kau. MCPs like these ought to be tiu-ed.

THOUGHTS FROM OTHER BLOGGERS:
The stupid, it burns

Seriously, what’s wrong with the Government!

When they say ‘women and children first’ they do not mean treat women like children!

TV’s hilarious “Timeline For The Dim Bulb

Shadowfox’s ” Rais Yatim is a genius. He’s proof that Men are Better than Women.” (you better have high level of tolerance and understanding of what sarcasm is before you go over)

Rocky Bru’s “Rais, the ladies aren’t amused

  1. First off the bat, Lilian: hope you’re having a great Mother’s Day! To all the mothers out there thank you for your dedication and sacrifices you’ve made over the years.

    Rais Yatim shouldn’t take the easy way out by making extreme judgements and issuing statements that feels like he just shot his mouth off without thinking. And then you wait la, 2-3 days later he or his ministry or his party will say that the MSM misquoted him, what he meant to say was, “… women should be more careful… bla bla bla when accepting overseas jobs… bla bla bla,”. His statement is like “Kalau hendak melentur buluh, biar dari rebung” but with a twist “Tak payah tanam buluh, tanam lalang sahaja! Sebab lalang senang lentur”

    These people who accept these jobs also one kind. What they think? If can earn money so fast, don’t they realize they’re doing things illegally. If can earn so much within a short span, don’t they think other people would be doing it too?

    Some friends of mine used to say this phrase when they find people who don’t use their brains as intended: “Ingat diaorang simpan otak kat lutut!” or “Bodoh, sebab makan banyak belacan…”

  2. Yes, let the individuals take the consequences of their actions. People are old enough and if they get in trouble, then too bad. It’s pure greed. I know how greed could screw up people and I’ve seen it myself.

    Some people just simply cannot be rescued or saved without a hard lesson. The government is too nanny lah. I wonder if the proposed rules are applicable to Muslim women only or across all races/religion ?

    ShadowFoxs last blog post..STOMP you Cheebai, why you so Kay Poh ?

  3. I think as demonstrated here, there are many other Malaysians who are more qualified to be a minister than this guy…

    So, will a new ruling involving local men having to ask for family consent when going out of the house prevent crimes like robbery, rape, theft and so on?

    If yes, syabas! A genius Malaysian has thought of a crime prevention measures which no one else in the whole wide world have thought of before and should be in line for the nobel peace prize award. Oh no, the prize may have to be shared out, because this idea is probably jointly thought of by the ministry and other minister!

  4. Haloooo RY, are u still in the last Millenium? Women should get consent before travelling abroad? It’s like asking them to wear chastity belts before going out of the house.
    Shame on you…

  5. you know why gomen upset? because all these stupid bitches are malay girls who claim innocence giving cock-bulls stories that they have been con, blah..blah…blah. only when they are arrested. do you believe these girls arrested are first timers? I doubt so. They must have known what they are suppose to when given free trips with everything thrown in , right! Even when their boyfriend bring them for holidays and shopping they also must be prepared to be sc..w right? you girls when they are arrested and they need gomen help so what do you exoect them to say? obviously they have to create stories and plead innocence. why didnt they tell how much money they have pocketed? lets be realistic as the saying goes in cantonese where can you find a big frog ( Not Ibrahim Ali) jumping all over the streets.

  6. and not a peep from the Women,Family and Community Development Ministry….

  7. This is yet another retarded proposal from retared BN. Is hopeless now for malaysia to be ruled by such gov.

  8. Sigh. This is BN government mah. First, an idiot will bark, then opposition and women group will protest. After that, the PM will keep quiet only. Later, the minister himself will apologize.

    You see lah, sure happen one. Biasa dah.

  9. oh no not another silly minister!!!
    stupid. i hate stupid ppl who doesn’t know how to use their statistics properly. 119 cases…and 90% linked to drugs…which means about 107 cases.. Wow…alot hor?!!! And in comparison with SINGLE TRAVELING WOMEN per year….how many percent izzit?? whoa….enough to revamp the law imposed on ALL Malaysian women?? [insert appropriate sarcasm]

  10. :mrgreen: Everyone agrees that we have elected another moron into cabinet. Sigh….

    Let’s wait for the proposal to be tabled at Parliament and let’s see Fong Po Kuan, Teresa Kok, Chong Eng and all the cili api from Pakatan Rakyat tear him apart. Woohoo…I hope they have live telecast. 😆

    Kopi – That Minister, the CCBNYY was supportive of CSL mah…she said it is fine for a man to seek sexual outlet, with the wife’s permission. I have a post with proof somemore.

  11. This was reported in the foreign media and instead of only RY looking stupid, it makes Malaysia sound like some country with outdated notions and some more BBC reported “In recent years the influence of hardline Islamic groups has been increasing in Malaysia, but it is unclear whether this proposal has any religious motive.”
    This is really bad for our country as a whole. 😡 All because we have some stupid chauvinistic minister.

  12. MCH……… woi! wake up lar you katak dibawah tempurung old man. You mean businesswoman like me who is already in my 30’s also need to get consent from my family when i travel on business trip. Make sense boh, situpid fellow?

  13. Judging from the comments above, I guess every one here is basically against the decision. All i have to say that it is a knee jerk reaction to his initial statement, and it is a stupid decision yes.

    But in another note, I dont see what is the relation of some comments here saying “BN leaders under Pak Lah” is making bad decisions and such. This statement is completetly baseless and unfair.

    If you think about it, there are other leaders from other parties making “silly decisions” as well. Like for example, separate counters for genders? COME ON.

    So stop judging the whole party for this person’s mistake.

  20. Jarod – :mrgreen: You think I am the queen kah? Hahaha. Never mind, I just read that Pak Lah also shot him down already. But now, new things brewing. RPK kena seditious act, kena pergi court lor.

  21. Sorry out of topic a bit. But I think the only one who happens to be ‘untouched and untouchable’ by the Seditions Act is Tun Mahathir <– read this properly ar!

    So we get him to be the endorsed speaker/blogger/spokesperson for the masses that sit on the fence la. Why? He speak loud loud also tak pernah kena ‘interview’.

  22. Haiz…another brainless idiotic politician putting us to shame with stoopid ideas. It’s amazing the things they come up with – doesn’t anyone vet thru all this before it’s released to the press??! Altho’ he tried to save his arse by LATER qualifying that it should only apply to women below 21 (or was it 18?)…the damage has been done lah!

    Raynebows last blog post..A monochromatic scene

  23. hello lilian,

    kalau u nak beri kritikan pada RY,pls use kata kata yang baik.jgnlah emotional.relaks la.mcm u,he too ada hak nak give his opinion.cuma cadangan peribadi beliau saja, bukan Kerajaan.ok.kita org malaysia mestilah berbudi bahasa dan saling menghormati antara satu sama lain.next time guna words yang baik.ia tak akan merugikan sesiapa.

  24. zainal – Thanks for your reminder but, get used to it because that’s the way things are around here. Kes ni orang dah lupa, beb. I tak ada mood nak layan.

  25. lilian- cari salah orang memang senang beb.kita mesti hormati perasaan org lain juga.barulah jiwa kita tenang dan tenteram.

  26. Zainal – Eh, what’s your problem? Rais Yatim really made a boo-boo, even the PM cannot rescue him from the stupid idea. So, I dissed him. So what? Whether I tenteram dalam hati or not, how you know lah? Jangan pandai nak jadi ahli psikologi peribadi saya, boleh?

  27. Lilian, it may be boo-boo to you, but did it ever occured to you that it is not a boo-boo to other people? So, u think u are more smarter and more education, and more rational, and more rightful that other people who may think it’s not a boo-boo? You think other people are more assholes, more sick, more irrational, more stupid than you if they think it’s not a boo-boo?

    Your statement shows that you are a typical Malaysian who are very emotional that lacks rationale state of mind. If you yourself could not even uplift the true spirit of being a Malaysian, then why would you expect someone else to be so? So, like it or not, this is Malaysia as you have successfully shown us through your comments and blogs. And when people commented on your statements, you jump! But you expect other ppl not to jump when you made bad remarks of them? This is rational? Don’t think so. Please lah…cakap memang senang, nak tiu orang memang senang, tapi nak terima orang tiu u memang susah, kan? That is what is called “Selfishness”. And Malaysian spirit is not about selfishness. You like to say lots of things, comment here and there, say things rudely, attack here and there, but does it ever occur to you that you are still not contributing towards solving the problem? Have you given any suggestions, even in this blog? Have you given your thoughts on what should Malaysian as a whole do, and what should the Malaysia Gov do? Have you? Have you? No, you have not…

  28. Oh…and one more thing, I have a blog too, and it’s quite big…and I especially wants to see your clause about “I may twist your words, so don’t bother to try (criticising)”…

    Let’s see how “smart” you are in twisting…and how rational are you in allowing my comments to be seen by others…then maybe I’ll spare you of my “twisting” in my blog about you… 🙂

  29. We don’t need a Malaysian like you who write things like this, who are very rude in your writing (although you claim you are nice, but if you could translate it in writing, your embedded life interest may not be nice after all since this is your value system).

    And you say you are a Catholic. If you can translate and write something like this, it’s not catholic not is it? You may be a Catholic, but I doubt you are a practicing Catholic. What you write may come from what you believe. If you don’t believe in something, then why would you write something you don’t believe in? Would that be, uummm…stupid?

  30. Maybe after this i could create a section in my blog that says something like: “The Obnoxious 5xmom – Tak Pakai Hotak Ke?” since u write something that you don’t believe in….
