Lulu Remembers Another Illegal Society

After a series of interlocutory hearings over the discovery of documents that took more than seven months, the matter finally came before Justice Harun Hashim in the Kuala Lumpur High Court on February 4, 1988. The judge ruled that under the existing law he had no option but to find the party, UMNO, to be an unlawful society due to the existence of several unregistered branches — an illegal act under the Societies Act of 1966.
Means, Gordon P. (1991). Malaysian Politics: The Second Generation, pp. 3, 5, 29. Oxford University Press. ISBN 0-19-588988-6.

Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu (Baru) or UMNO (New) was formed after the sudden death of UMNO. Eventually the suffix "(New)" was dropped, and UMNO (Baru) became both the de facto and de jure successor of UMNO (with the old UMNO's assets handed over).

The UMNO that we see today is not the UMNO which was born in 1946.
Born in 1989, out of a power struggle and not struggle for kemerdekaan, they should be throwing their big time celebration to mark their 20th anniversary in 2009.

What was it Dr M said? ah..... Melayu mudah lupa.
Maybe not
In UMNO's case, it is a case of selective memory.

-------------------------------
On the other hand, yesterday, Hindraf was declared an illegal society by one of the most un-respected politicians in our land. Curently, Hindraf isnt even a society but a common reference for a group of people who seek the betterment of the downtrodden Indian community.
Syed Hamid is trying to relegate Hindraf to the status of Voldemort aka ho-who-must-not-be-named. Kinda dumb, isnt it?

Haris is on the dot when he ponders How can you stop the rain from falling down? How can you stop the sun from shining?
How do we stop people from caring for one another?
How can we stop people from taking care of the under priveleged and the downtrodden?
UMNO may not care.
Syed Hamid may not care.
But we do.
We care.

The only way to end Hindraf is to end their reason of existence.
The government has to put a stop to discriminatory practices against the Indians, or any other race for that matter.
The government has to give opportunities to who need that extra push in life.
The government has to learn to not oppress our fellow Malaysians.
The government has to get rid of ISA.
The government has to start caring for all Malaysians.

In the age of C4, be extra careful of what you say ...

"The only way to end Hindraf is to end their reason of existence."

I know what you mean. You know what you mean. But the umno/utusan melayu crowd may see it in a different light.

And if this happens, Malaysia will be forever enshrined in the history of human holocaust, behind that of Hitler and Rwanda.

It is very disheartening to read about the wrongs that are happening in our beloved country.

Why are our beloved Rulers keeping silent over the oppression by the evil BN.

Aren't they supposed to be protectors of the rakyat or are they only interested to protect their own ricebowls.

So sad!!!

Makes me wonder about their role and what they stand for???
