Put an End to Biro Tata Negara

“We were taught a song with lyrics like ‘the land that you walk upon is owned by others. Lecturers told us the Malays were forced to depend on the Chinese for support after 1998 because some Malays had betrayed their own race,” Hafidz Baharom, a freelance writer, recalled.

These courses have been running for years, and are intended to instill nationalistic values and patriotism. Conducted by the National Civics Bureau — better known as BTN (Biro Tatanegara) — the courses are for university students on public scholarships and civil servants. BTN is under the Prime Minister’s Department.

Last week, seven young Pakatan Rakyat Selangor assemblymen handed over a letter to the Selangor government, urging it to stop allowing students of state- owned universities and colleges to attend these courses.

The Selangor government, which is now controlled by the opposition Pakatan Rakyat, owns three universities and colleges.

Kudos to Seri Setia assemblyman Nik Nazmi, Batu Caves assemblyman Amirudin Shari and others for standing up against decades of racist rhetoric and a programme paid by tax payers.

This is one of the many reasons why a segment of the society still think that the presence of others is the main reason for their deprivation. This is also a strong reason for to reject a race based coalition and end racism in the country.

Thanks for the gallantry!

PM Najib can't be sincere about his "1Malaysia", if he insists on continuing with no intention whatsoever to end Biro Tata Negara(BTN).

The BTN is the official gomen undercover Gestapo operative.

The very existence of this unit is proof that the gomen is not sincere with its 1Malaysia campaign.

On the outside it spins unity among the races but behind the rakyat, the gomen uses the BTN to brainwash the Malays to distrust the non-malays and use psychology to make the malays feel threatened by the other races.

1Malaysia is B*!! S#*% as long as BTN is in operation.

Khoo,
This is not a 'new' secret. We knew about it from long ago. But what surprises me is why the pendatang parties like MCA, Gerakan and MIC kept quiet when they knew what was happening under their noses.

BTN is a disgrace to the nation. Hypocritical and racist, why such a unit exist under the arms of the PM's department, which clearly shows, has a hand in this blantant waste of the tax payers' money.

To correct this wrong, let's exercise our rights in the next GE.

Education is the only mechanism with which governments can influence the mind of the young to serve and protect their wicked and selfish purposes. After all, these young people would later be serving the government and They need all the support they can muster. This has to stop.

They learn well from the late Mao Tse Tung (PRC) and Kim Il Sung (DRK). BTN is actually a secret admirer of the Communist propaganda machine.

We send our kids to University to be educated but instead they got indoctrinated.

Kudos to Selangor State for exposing the hate-mongering human refuses that run BTN. The sooner the bureau is closed down the faster our nation will come off age. I believe Selangor State's act brings it to the open the sham that is 1Malaysia. Will other Pakatan states, Kedah, Penang and Kelantan follow suit?

They should. It's long past due!
