Save Sufiah: The Unbelievable Stupidity of Khaled Nordin

Filed under: malaysia, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — toru @ 2:08 pm

What an ignoble start for the new Higher Education Minister. He wants to save Sufiah Yusof. What a joke! On what basis are we going to use tax payers’ money to save her? She’s not even a Malaysian citizen! The UK government basically told the Malaysian government to fuck off with their ridiculous request to help Sufiah.

It just galls me to think when Chiang Ti Ming, the Malaysian Chinese genius, wanted to further his education in the 90s he received no help from the Malaysian government. Nada. Nil. Kosong. The Chinese community had to raise funds for him to further his education in the US. Of course, the Malaysian government went running to Sufiah’s father to offer her a scholarship to Oxford when Sufiah’s story broke. And now after all these years, they offer to help Sufiah again now that she is working as an escort. Hello Pakcik Khaled Nordin – Why the double standards? Is it because you think that Sufiah is Malay? She is only half Malay – have some pride lah. Is it because Sufiah is Muslim? What about the Malaysian hookers in Chow Kit and Choo Cheng Kay flats? Who will save their souls?

Khaled Nordin – you should concentrate on managing your portfolio instead of menjaga tepi kain orang lain. Remember? Higher Education? Somehow I doubt that this guy will do well in this portfolio.

Sufiah, 23, is a British citizen, whose mother Halimathon Yusof is from Muar, Johor. Her father, Faroof Yusof, is a Pakistani citizen.
