Ridhuan Tee Abdullah’s article in Sinar Harian Daily – Sivarraajh
Referring to the sensitive article published in Sinar Harian Daily, page
40, on the 18th Februari 2013 (Monday) titled “Kesabaran Umat Islam ada
First of all, Vishwaroopam is a Tamil movie by the famous actor Kamal Hassan
produced in India and further promoted widely throughout the world. I
agree that the movie has some sensitive scenes which may hurt the
Muslims. When the movie brought down and distributed to Malaysia for local entertainment, it has gone through the usual process where FINAS has gone through the movie thoroughly and released Vishwaroobam in Malaysia.
The movie has been played by the local theatres before protested by Indian Muslim NGOs. Immediate response to it, Home Minister has instructed the movie to be banned. MIC of course has initiated support for the movie to be released after certain scenes being removed once again by FINAS. This was the actual true story.
Referring to Ridhuan Tee Abdullah’s article on the Sinar Harian, I feel he has insulted the Indian community.
Without understanding the actual story or denying the actual story he
has written an article with a hear say from his friend. The movie has
nothing to do with the Malaysian Indians, it is part of an entertainment
of our daily routine.
Furthermore, the movie has been released after FINAS given the green
light. Ridhuan Tee Abdullah in his article has fail to comment on the
FINAS’s action but pointed out that the Indian community in Malaysia is
insensitive towards the Muslims’ feeling. Ridzuan Tee is famous for his
sarcastic and creates hurt feelings among the multiracial readers of
Take a look at all his articles through Sinar Harian Online he blames
the Indian community for being insensitive and insulted the Thaipusam,
also Batu Caves Temple and statues through his other articles Di sebalik
cerita Batu Caves. He repeatedly calls the Chinese as ultra kiasu
through his article Permainan politik ultra kiasu. Ridhuan Tee is
insensitive and am a coward who is hidden behind the articles of Sinar
Harian and speaks as though he knows everything.
His current article in Sinar Harian quoted sensitive and hurting issues such as :
1. “Bayangkan selepas ini kita menerbitkan filem menghina agama lain.
Tentu kita masih ingat isu peristiwa perarakan kepala lembu suatu masa
dahulu. Begitu juga dengan anak muda Melayu yang masih meringkuk di
dalam penjara akibat cubaan membakar gereja. Malangnya, apabila anak
muda bukan Islam mencampak kepala babi ke dalam surau, maka tidak
2. Hari ini pergilah ke mana sahaja. Jika dahulu, rumah ibadat dan
patung-patung tidak banyak kelihatan meriah. Kalau adanya pun agak suram
dan tidak Nampak tombolnya. Tetapi selepas PRU 12, keadaan jauh
berubah. Mereka mendapat peruntukan sana sini, pusat dan negeri. Rumah
ibadat kecil menjadi besar, tombol rendah menjadi tinggi dan
3. Mereka mendesak diberikan tambahan kerusi. Jika benar-benar ikhlas,
pergilah menawarkan diri bertanding di kawasan majoriti ultra kiasu
(Cina). Mintalah kerusi sebanyak mana pun. Tetapi beri laluan kepada
orang Islam bertanding di kawasan majoriti Melayu.
4. Saya cadangkan agar PRU 13, jika kita mahukan sangat orang India
bertanding di kawasan majoriti Melayu, carilah kalangan India Muslim
seperti KIMMA dan MIM, tetapi bukan mereka yang tidak Islam. Orang
Melayu tidak teragak untuk memangkah mereka, tetapi apakah mereka
memangkah kita apabila laluan diberikan?
Does any of the above captions mentioned in his article got to do with
the movie Vishwaroopam? What is the point of making an illogical
statement by referring to political and religious matters in Malaysia?
I feel very upset with Sinar Harian Daily for being insensitive towards
the feeling of the Indian community and also Chinese. We are living in a
peaceful manner in Malaysia. This kind of irresponsible writer should
be sacked for creating tense. Ridhuan Tee should know his limits! This
is not the first time as I mentioned earlier. Everyone can write but not
many can write responsibly. Ridhuan Tee is the real example of a person
whom writes without responsibility. I pledge all Malaysians regardless
of religion and race to boycott Ridhuan Tee and his article publishers
Let us together teach a lesson for anyone who wish to play racial
sentiments and religious matters as a key to gain popularity. Ridhuan
Tee must apologize for his irresponsibility and tense caused. Sinar
Harian Daily should also apologize openly for publishing the article.
MIC Youth has lodged a police report at Balai Polis Sentul at 11.00am
demanding the police to take a stern action against Ridhuan Tee and
MIC Youth also demands an open apology from Sinar Harian within 3 days.
The Home Ministry should come forward and take immediate and stern
action against those responsible for the article. I sincerely hope that
the quick response method from the Home Ministry in banning the
Vishwaroobam movie immediately as soon as people protested can also be
used in taking a quick and stern action against those involved in
publishing and writing the article.
