Sarawak's NO to Rohingyas

MM Online - Sarawak CM says no to Rohingya refugees (extracts):

KUCHING, Sept 13 — Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Abang Johari Openg today put to rest any speculation that the state would provide temporary sojourn for Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar.

“No, there is no such thing,” he responded, when asked whether the state government would allow the Rohingya into Sarawak.

“I am puzzled as to who started it (speculations in the social media). We don’t want to get involved in this issue,” he told reporters after opening an International Conference on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) organised by Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) here today.

You can't fault Abang Johari Openg. Why should Sarawak inherit another country's problem? Furthermore, Rohingyas are either IS-like militants or potential IS-like militants. No sane country wants to entangle itself with such a perilously dangerous security issue.

The Australian Greens has advocated Australia takes in 20,000 Rohingyas. Apart from hardly making a significant dent on the problem, I doubt the more conservative Coalition (Liberal Part and National Party), or even the less conservative Labor Party, will countenance acceptance of Rohingyas as refugees into their already troubled community. Currently, Australia is security-wise sensitive about migrants from Islamic countries.

has even introduced a bill to deny phones (mobiles) to immigration detainees

As I mentioned, the Rohingyas should balik kampung mereka di Bangladesh (former East Pakistan). I am sorry to say this, but no one in the world wants the Rohingyas, not even Malaysia.


  1. i think we shd do more to help the rohingya, i still dun quite understand y rohingya is diff with other refugees.

    1. Don't understand??

      The militant wahabbism has given Islam a bad name!

      The unprovoked attacks in many parts of the bleeding-hearted Western democracies by these zombies had created a psychological barrier amongst the people of these nations to be wearied & offering any creditable helps.

      Anything that has a slightest link to that zombieic faith is considered bad news.

      Thus, know WHO to blame ke???

    2. militant n refugee not the same. or as usual u only look at big picture wakaka.

    3. Tell that to those victims next-of-kins about militant n tefugee not the same lah!

      Better still when u r one of them, ONLY then would u realize how hollow is yr political-correctness appearance!

  2. The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), has claimed responsibility for an attack on police posts and an army base in Rakhine State. Well done Sarawak.

  3. Sarawak is probably the last state in Malaysia where Christianity is the majority. I hope we can avoid sudden influx of foreigners to Islamize us.


    The United Nations has recognised the humanitarian plight of the Rohingyas.

    The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) actions have been roundly condemned, but tarring the entire Rohingya community as guilty would be no different from treating the entire Malayan Chinese community as guilty for the CPM's terrorist actions.

    The fact is there has been Indian-Muslim settlement in Arakan province for centuries.
    The Arakan province is more accessible from the Bengal coast than it is from the Irrawaddy basin, where rugged mountains stand in the way the entire length of the coast, and very few ethnic Burmese bothered to cross those mountains to settle. Till today, there are few road crossings across the Arakan Mountains. The British Army successfully made use of the geography during World War II when they attacked along the Arakan coast as one of the pincers to drive the Japanese out of Burma. The Japanese found it very difficult to sustain any counter attack across the mountains.

    Yes, Rohingya settlement in Arakan peaked during the British Colonial era, but that was generations ago.
    During the messy and acrimonious Burmese independence from the British , the status of the Rohingyas was never settled.

    That does not make them non-persons.

    Calling the Rohingyas to Balik Kampung is heartless, as the only the Kampung they know is Burma/Myanmar.
    Is it alright to tell the Malaysian Chinese to Balik Tongsan ? I doubt China wants you guys back either.

    Australia has one of the most mean-spirited refugee policies in the world. When Malcolm Turnbull opened his mouth to criticise Donald Trump he was rightly excoriated for Australia being one of the few countries in the world having even less moral standing to lecture the Americans.

    1. Such a piece from a known ketuanan freak like u, speak volume about the evilness of yr political play.

      Perhaps, in the same spirit of one Hamizura Osman.


      WRT the Rohingya in Arakan, maybe u SHOULD use yr (ill)understanding of the situation of Jews in Palestine.

      Both a creation of Pommie out of a hot political potato, too hot to handle, too late to rectify within a sea of hostile populace of different faith,!
