REMEMBERING SOMEONE UMNO DOES NOT WANT SARAWAKIANS TO REMEMBER.

Does the name ROSLI DHOBI aka LIDROS raise the hackles of Sarawakian Malays. He was hanged by the British because he was against oppression. He assasinated a British Governor of Sarawak at the age of 17. The oppression of the Malays in Sarawak has taken a different form. I was disgusted when I saw the conditions some of the Malays in Sarawak were subjected to. But according to a Malay friend over supper conversation last night, the Malays are afraid to make any form of protest over their plight. I wonder why?

More on Rosli Dhobi HERE.

+++++

AT A CERAMAH LAST NIGHT AT MARKAS PAS, KAMPUNG HILIR
ROSLI DHOBI WAS MENTIONED BY A PKR SPEAKER.
THE SMALL CROWD VOLUNTEERED A SIGNIFICANT AWE
AT THE UNEXPECTED MENTION OF THIS
FORGOTTEN PATRIOT.

MAYBE WE SHOULD RAISE THE GHOST OF ROSLI DHOBI!

NO BRITISH OPPRESSORS THIS TIME.

SO WHO HAS TAKEN OVER FROM THE BRITISH?

Remember the one who went boom in the middle of the night or how about the one who is said to be haunting a plaza where some fellas against cows and cars used to gather.

Zerro, thanks for the Sibu update. It seems very quiet there unlike Hulu Selangor. Ceremahs are also not well attended with few hundred people at best. What's happening there man?

Dear Uncle Zorro,

The below was the last letter of Rosli Dhoby to his family before his death. Very touching my heart. I took it from che'gu Bard's blog:


Ini ialah petikan surat terakhir Rosli Dhoby kepada keluarganya sehari sebelum digantung:

Kepada ibu bapaku yang dimuliai dan ditaati serta dicintai siang dan malam.

1. Selamat berpisah anakanda ucapkan di atas kematian anakanda yang dahsyat. Janganlah diingat-ingat dan dirayukan kerana itu memang sudah nasib dan takdir anakanda yang tak dapat dielakkan dan dimungkirkan lagi.

2. Peliharakanlah adik dan kakak serta semua ahli kita - Berikan segala pelajaran sama ada `Sunat' atau `Fardu' kepada mereka.

3. Ampunilah dosa dan kesalahan anakanda dari merah tapak kaki dipelihara ayahanda dan bonda sehingga hari perpisahan anakanda. Dan halalkanlah makan minum anakanda.

4. Selimutilah jenazah anakanda dengan Panji Kebangsaan Sarawak.

5. Segala perkakas tulis menulis, buku dan pakaian anakanda itu, berikan semuanya kepada Adik Aini.

6. Sementara anak kecil Fatimah, berilah dengan nama ROSLI sempena memperingati anakanda.

7. Sampaikan salam hormat dan maaf serta selamat dari anakanda kepada ibu tua dan bapa saudara anakanda.

8. Ayahanda dan bonda serta ahli keluarga sekalian janganlah lupa mengamalkan kebajikan dan mendirikan sembahyang untuk bekalan istimewa ke alam yang kekal.

Salam sembah dari anakanda.

Rosli Dhoby

1 Mac, 1950.

Things pakatan does not want sarawakian to know :

“Lihat sahaja semasa ura-ura membenarkan bekas setiausaha agung Parti Komunis Malaysia (CPM) Chin Peng pulang ke Malaysia, mereka (PKR dan DAP) hanya berdiam menutup mulut.”

“Tahukah mereka bahawa ramai askar kita terkorban semasa pemerintahn komunis, antaranya 19 mangsa terbunuh yang kini rangkanya dalam proses untuk dibawa balik ke Sarawak. Mereka terkorban dan dikebumikan di Semenanjung Malaysia ketika membantu askar Tanah Malayu zaman pemborontakkan komunis.”
