I am referring to the news below.
National team should be called Harimau Malaysia not Harimau Malaya - JahidBefore you fly off the handle Datuk Jahid Jahim, sir, you should get your facts straight. Otherwise people will laugh at your ignorance since you are the Sabah assistant minister of Youth and Sports. You give the rest of the Datuks a bad name. Shame on you!
TUARAN Dec 30 — Sabah assistant minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Jahid Jahim who congratulated the national team for the AFF Suzuki Cup win, however, was disappointed with the use of Harimau Malaya to refer the Malaysian team.
Jahid added that he had received numerous calls from youth organizations in the state, condemning the use of “Harimau Malaya or Singa Malaya” (Malaya Tiger or Malaya Lion).
"Being the assistant minister of Youth and Sports, the youth of the state have been calling me to express their disappointment over the use of Harimau Malaya to refer the national football team instead of Harimau Malaysia.
"I feel there is a basis to their feelings since it does not portray the ideals of the 1Malaysia concept introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak...Harimau Malaysia should have been used,” he told reporters here today.
Jahid who is also the Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Youth Chief said the mainstream media, especially the editors, should be more responsible when using such sensitive words since “Malaya” literally omitted Sabah and Sarawak.
He added that though it was not a major issue since it was only used to refer the national team that played in the AFF Suzuki Cup, the impact and sensitivity can become a big factor.
Again, this corroborates with what I had thought all along, that Ministers or Deputy Ministers or Assistant Ministers are not as clever as people seems to think they are.
The fact is that, most of the clever people or the geniuses have lots of work to do and don't have time to whine like a baby. That's why most of them are not Ministers.
Just because they are ministers, it does not automatically make them Einstein. They sure have to read a lot and mingle with people. Do it like Datuk Seri Najib.
Don't sit on your ass all day long like a lazy fat pig. Ministers or Deputy Ministers or Assistant Ministers for that matter should work harder than the rest of us lay person here because you get paid 5 or 10 times more than us.
Moreover, on top of that, you get all kinds of allowance the rest of us should be so grateful if we can get it. So, work like mad before voters like us vote someone else in. We are watching you closely like a hawk.
You should serve us the taxpayers, by working, not by whining, because we are actually the ones who are paying your salary. Don't you ever forget that. I will kick your ass if you whine like a girl again.
"Harimau Malaya" or the Malayan Tiger is a name of a sub species of a tiger. It has nothing to do with deliberately ousting Sabah or Sarawak from Malaysia. So, don't be over sensitive and sulk like a gay boy!
"Harimau Belang" is its other name, found in the southern and central parts of the Malay Peninsula, is a subspecies of tiger found in Thailand and Malaysia.
If you don't believe what I had said, you can read it for yourself in the Wikipedia.
By the way, you do know how to read, don't you Datuk Jahid?
