Malaysia datukship are getting ridiculous.

I read it in disbelieve when news about Shah Rukh Khan was given a "Datuk" title few days ago. Nothing strange about it, because the last previous "Datuk" also given to someone who just sat in a space rocket courtesy of the Malaysian tax payer money.

The reason Shah Rukh Khan was awarded to this title according to the Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam as i quote;

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the decision to confer the title on the actor was suggested to Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob by former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin recently.

Daim said it was a means to promote Malacca and the actor had shot a movie scene here several years ago.

TheStar: People just Khan believe it!

It look like our dear leaders are getting the kick out listing some people that he or she like to our tax payer money title without considering their achievement to the nation or the state. This raised a great concern on their mental state and ability to make a good judgment when big crisis happening to the nation such as today, the downfall of the nation economy.

Nevertheless, we can see some well deserved Nicol David and Lee Chong Wei awarded this title because of their contribution and hard work in achieving great success in international sports.

Only few well deserved people were awarded a high rank title from the government compare to lots that were questionable. We will see many more of ridiculous people given an honorary title that sooner or later will downgraded the prestige and the respect of it. I bet people from other country laughing at us and felt sad over our leaders’ mental state of mind.

Hello friend. Sia limpas2 bah ni. Interested pula dgn entry pasal Datukship ni. Actually, gelaran Datuk memang ada kuota untuk orang luar, tidak kiralah sama ada dia ahli perniagaan ka, ahli politik ka, artis ka atau siapa-siapa saja yang diingini. Dalam kes SRK, sebenarnya dia ada menyumbang untuk charity di Malaysia secara senyap. Tidak dikhabarkan oleh mana-mana media. Atas dasar itu, beliau diberikan gelaran Datuk.

hi,sememangnya terdapat kuota yang memberikan gelaran datuk kepada masyarakat dan terpulanglah kepada budibicara si penganugerah dalam konteks malaysia Yang Dipertuan Agong, Sultan dan TYT.

Pemberian gelaran kepada sesiapa individu haruslah berdasarkan kepada usaha sumbangan yang berunsurkan negara atau negeri yang diiktiraf oleh masyarakat.

Sememang ada kebenarnya apa dikatakan oleh puteri ezza bahawa SRK telah menyumbang charity dalam malaysia secara senyap, dan ini kerana beliau tidak mahu pemberiannya dianggap sebagai tidak ikhlas dan salah anggap dari umum.

namum, pemberian gelaran bertaraf datuk adalah keterlaluan kerana terdapat banyak individu yang telah menyumbangan lebih banyak wang dan melakukan usaha kebajikan yang lain yang layak dan sepatutnya mendapat pengikirafan tidak mendapat perhatian yang secukupnya dari kerajaan.

pemberian gelaran datuk atas alasan sumbangan wang sepatutnya tidak boleh diterima umum kerana ia memberikan tanggapan yang salah kepada masyarakat umum bahawa gelaran tersebut dibeli oleh seseorang individu yang sememangnya telah menjadi kebiasaan dalam proses pemberian gelaran di malaysia.

dalam konteks SRK, saya masih berpendapat bahawa pemberian gelaran kepada SRK adalah satu "stunt publicity" yang mempunyai agenda dan maksud tersirat.

And my sis told me that Kenny Sia wrote about Jessica Alba who should receive a datukship as well. Terribly hilarious! But you know what, I realise all these datukships are just b*llsh*t. We should do away with these titles.

Jefferi said...

malaysia leader does lots of stupid thing and it become more stupid. i do think we should do away the stupid leaders rather than the title.. hehe..

lynnx01 said...

Well said. They really make a fool out of themselves. They think the citizens are as foolish as them to be cheated? No longer.. people have brains and the internet to figure out the truths.

Jefferi said...

i guess they don't my because fooling themselves is part of the job spec, as long as money come in to their pocket, they just dun mind. it is our job to make sure those identified clown got kicked out from representing the people and more honest and transparent government can lead us to a better leadership.

ps - i guess i can only see it in dream at the moment.. :P
