RASUAH II


As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on July 05, 2016

Saya dan isteri saya mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin kepada semua rakyat Malaysia, khususnya kepada pembaca blog ini

1. Dalam Pilihanraya Kecil baru-baru ini ramai daripada pengundi gembira menerima duit, beras dan alatan elektrik.

2. Mereka tentu tahu mereka telah menerima suapan rasuah. Yang memberi pun tentu tahu mereka melakukan perbuatan yang salah di sisi undang-undang dan juga di sisi agama yang mereka anuti.

3. Kerana rasuah inilah, pihak yang menyogok mendapat kemenangan.

4. Kemenangan yang didapati dengan cara tidak halal bukanlah kemenangan yang sebenar. Seperti mana barangan yang dicuri tidak halal diguna atau dimakan, demikian juga kemenangan itu tidak halal.

5. Di dunia ini mereka tidak dapat dihukum kerana mereka sendiri yang berkuasa ke atas proses mendakwa dan menghukum. Tetapi perbuatan tidak mendakwa dan menghukum juga salah dari segi undang-undang duniawi serta agama. Ini juga melipatgandakan kesalahan dan dosa perlakuan mereka. Sogokan yang diberi dan diterima oleh penerima sudah dua kali haram.

6. Punca duit yang disogok juga haram kerana ia didapati dengan cara haram. Mereka yang menerima dengan ini menerima duit tiga kali haram.

7. Dalam Islam kita diberi hak bertaubat. Tetapi taubat kita hanya diterima Allah s.w.t. jika kita tidak mengulangi perbuatan salah yang telah kita lakukan. Mereka yang menunggu-nunggu untuk sogokan dimasa hadapan harus ingat pesanan dalam Al Quran berkenaan bertaubat.

8. Rasuah adalah suatu jenayah yang keji dan kotor. Ia merosakkan masyarakat, menindas yang miskin, menghalang kemajuan dan kesejahteraan, melemahkan dan mempermudahkan penjajahan oleh bangsa lain.

9. Mereka yang cuba menghalalkan rasuah tetap termasuk dalam golongan penjenayah yang berdosa. Lebih buruk lagi ialah mereka yang tahu akan larangan agama terhadap rasuah namun mereka cuba halalkan rasuah. Dosa mereka tentu berlipatganda jika kerana mereka dakwa bahawa rasuah itu halal maka orang lain akan menerima rasuah.

10. Amatlah menyedihkan apabila didapati yang teramai dari orang yang menyuap dan memakan rasuah ialah orang Islam. Sebabnya ialah kerana tidak ada tekanan oleh mereka yang bertanggungjawab mendidik akan haramnya rasuah dan pentingnya ia ditolak. Justeru itu ia tidak termasuk dalam nilai hidup yang dipegang sebagai sebahagian dari budaya orang Islam Malaysia sekurang-kurangnya.

11. Harapan masyarakat kepada undang-undang mencegah rasuah tidak mungkin berjaya sepenuhnya. Undang-undang melarang mencuri mungkin mengurangkan jenayah ini tetapi tidak menghapus pencurian. Sudah tentu jika mereka yang dipertanggungjawab menguatkuasa undang-undang pencegahan rasuah, mereka sendiri mengamal rasuah, maka undang-undang tidak bermakna lagi. Lebih buruk lagi ialah apabila undang-undang mencegah rasuah diguna untuk tujuan lain, untuk politik umpamanya. Rasuah sejuta dikena tindakan, rasuah berbillion dihalalkan.

12. Sebenarnya penolakan rasuah sebagai satu budaya dan nilai hidup sahaja yang boleh mengurangkan perlakuan rasuah. Benar rasuah terdapat dimana-mana sahaja. Tetapi ia amat berkurangan jika budaya masyarakat atau bangsa itu memandang keji dan menolak rasuah.

13. Untuk ini orang atasan khususnya pemimpin hendaklah menunjuk teladan yang baik. Lebih-lebih lagi pemimpin perlu tentukan pendidik memberi tekanan dalam mendidik pelajar dari peringkat tadika sehingga ke sekolah.

14. Sesungguhnya negara ini sedang menuju kehancuran kerana rasuah diperguna secara meluas untuk menguasai segala-galanya.

CORRUPTION II

My wife and I wish Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin to all Malaysians, especially to readers of this blog.

1. In the recent by-election many of the people of the electorate were happy to receive money, rice and electrical appliances.

2. They certainly know what they had received were bribes. The giver would also certainly know what they did was wrong in the eyes of the law and also in the eyes of religion they profess.

3. It was because of this corruption, the party that bribed was victorious.

4. Victory obtained by illegitimate means is by no means a real victory. Just as all stolen goods are illicit to use or consume, so is victory that is not legitimate.

5. In this world they cannot be punished for the power to prosecute and judge rests with them. But the acts of not prosecuting and punishing are also wrong in worldly laws and in religion. This multiplies the wrongs and sins of their act. Bribery given and received by the receiver are illegal twice over.

6. The money used for bribery is also illicit as they were acquired through illegal means. Those who received the money were actually receiving money illegally three times over.

7. In Islam we are given the right to repent. But we will only receive mercy from Allah s.w.t. if we do not repeat the wrongs we have done. Those waiting for a bribe in the future will have to bear in mind the decree of the Quran regarding repentance.

8. Corruption is a heinous and dirty crime. It destroys society, oppresses the poor, hinders progress and harmony, weakens and facilitates colonization by other nations.

9. Those who are trying to legitimize corruption remains as one of those criminals who have sinned. Even worse are those who know that religion prohibits corruption but nonetheless they try to legitimize corruption. Their sins would certainly multiply if because of their claim that corruption is lawful others will accept bribes.

10. It is very sad indeed that most of the people who take bribes and receive bribes are Muslims. This is because there is no pressure by those responsible in educating the importance of prohibiting corruption and the importance of rejecting it. Therefore it is not included in the value of life held as part of the culture of Muslims in Malaysia, at least.

11. Hope of society on anti-corruption laws may not fully succeed. Laws prohibiting thefts may reduce but will not eliminate the crime of theft altogether. Certainly if those given the responsibility of enforcing the law against corruption are themselves corrupted, then the law itself is meaningless. Even worse is when laws to prevent corruption are used for other purposes, for instance politics. Corruption involving a million is liable for action, corruption involving billions legitimized.

12. In fact, it is only the rejection of corruption as a culture and a life value ​​alone that can reduce corruption. True there is corruption everywhere. But it is very much reduced if the culture of society or the people despises and rejects corruption.

13. For this, people at the top, especially senior leaders, should show good examples. More so leader need to assure that educators give emphasize in educating students from kindergarten to schools.

14. Indeed, the country is heading towards destruction as corruption is widely used to control everything.
