Who are the real "Pendatang"...?

Good to know who are the real Pendatang... The Indians and Chinese were here way before the Malays ... You have to start learning the correct history.

A small piece of History for our future generation..Why Kota Gelanggi (lost city) touted as earliest civilization in Malay Peninsula news were banned as they were Buddhist.

The Johor find of 2005 which was quietly dropped was none other than Kota Gelanggi lost city reflecting Srivijaya and its Buddhist splendour. But they deliberately disregarded it because that would have sidelined Malacca Empire and Islam which was smaller and came some 500 years later.

I met Dr Lee Kam Hing, a former History prof at MU in Singapore recently at a seminar.Dr Lee, who is now Star research director, told me he was trying his best to highlight Kota Gelanggi, but that the govt killed it off. This is clearly another case to cover up the real history of Malaya and fool the younger generations into believing that our history only began from Malacca 1400.. Not only that, they try to show Parameswara as Malay and Muslim, but actually he was Hindu!

A small piece of  History for our future generation Hitler's public relations manager, Goebbels, once  said, 'If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes  the truth.'

Once again our government wiped out any references to a famous Melaka prince as being Hindu and belonging to the powerful Hindu empire Sri Vijaya.So all of a sudden our museums, school text-books etc. all refer to Parameswara as a Malay prince.

What race ruled or did not rule is besides the point. What is important is not butchering history to create your own truths. You cannot change your race even if you convert - Parameswara could have been responsible for Umno's proud heritage of ' Ketuanan Melayu '.

If this is what it is based on, there is no ' Ketuanan Melayu '. The lineage of Melaka Sultans are Indians, not Malays.
It is no secret that Parameswara was an Indian and a Hindu prince.

It is clear from records that Parameswara never converted to Islam. He was an Indian Hindu who fled Palembang in Sumatra to eventually found Melaka circa 1400 AD. It was Sri Maharaja who converted himself and the court of Melaka to Islam, and as a result took on the name of Sultan Muhammad Shah sometime after 1435...

The most famous of Indian Hindu Kings were Raja Chola and his son Rajendra Chola who invaded Southern Thailand, Kedah, Perak, Johor and Sumatra about 1000 AD. This is
Raja-raja Chola - the Indian/Hindu kings and not Raja Chulan - a Malay king. But what is really sad is that our children are taught as though Malaysian history suddenly began in 1400 with an Islamic Melaka.

We are led to believe that the Indians and Chinese first arrived on the shores of Malaysia in about 1850 as desperate indentured labourers, farmers and miners . Nothing could be further from the truth.

The cultural influences of India in particular, and China, in South East Asia span over 2,000 years, starting with the arrival from India of the Brahmanical prince/scholar - Aji Saka in Java in AD78, through to Vietnam, Cambodia (Indo China), Thailand,Burma, Indonesia, Bali, Borneo, Brunei and beyond.

The findings at Bujang Valley speak of an ancient Indian/Hindu presence in Kedah. There were Chinese settlements in Pahang and Kelantan around the 13th-14th  century and in 12th century in Singapore .

The early Brunei Sultanate had a Chinese Queen. One need not ponder at length the implications of Angkor Wat and Borobudur or that 40%-50% of Bahasa Malaysia comprises Sanskrit/Tamil words. To illustrate, some of these word are :

bumi = boomi
putra  = putran
raja = rajah
desa = thesam
syakti = sakthi
kolam = kulam
bahaya = abahya
jaya = jeya
maha = maha
aneka = aneha
nadi = naadi
kedai = kadai
mahligai = maaligai
mantra = manthrum
tandas = sandas
(This list can go on)

An extremely important archeological find that pointed to one of the greatest empires in history - the Raja Chola empire that ruled from the Maldives through India , Sri Lanka and right down to South East Asia found deep in the jungles of Johor a few years ago and made headlines in the mainstream newspapers in 2005, suddenly disappeared from the news…..

The time has arrived for us to record our history as the facts tell us and not as we would like to  wish it.

The truth will never hurt anyone. Lies, always will .

  1. Profesor di atas sangat menipu.

    Jika bangsa Cina/India lebih dulu duduk di Tanah Melayu mengapa nama tempat ni Tanah Melayu. Tak ada pula bangunan yang boleh dikaitkan dengan Cina/India.

    Tanah Melayu tu bukan di sini saja, tetapi di seluruh nusantara di mana Melayu dah diami sejak ribuan tahun.

    Bahasa Melayu memang ada pengaruh Sanskrit sebab Melayu dahulu belajar agama Hindu/Buddha guna Sanskrit bahasa tertinggi untuk kitab-kitab Hindu/Budhha masa tu. Itu bukan bukti Cina atau india yang duduk di sini.

    Sapa nak tau Melayu Hindu zaman ini sila tengok sendiri di Pulau Bali. Dia bukan guna bahasa India. Dia guna bahasa Bali.

    Bahasa Melayu ada pengaruh Parsi, tak nak kata Parsi lebih dulu duduk kat sini ke?

    Borobudur dan Angkor Wat pada dindingnya tak ada bahasa Cina, tak da bahasa India.

    Cuba tengok Cina dan India ada ke candi yang serupa Borobudur dan Angkor? Tak ada

    Singapura tu nama Melayu
    Johor tu nama Melayu
    Kelantan nama Melayu
    Kedah nama Melayu
    Brunei nama Melayu
    Pahang nama Melayu
    Perak nama Melayu
    Melaka nama Melayu
    Lembah Bujang nama Melayu

    Memanglah ada jumpa berhala patung dan sebagainya di Tanah Melayu TETAPI itu semua sebab dulu Melayu beragama Hindu Budhha.

    Melayu janagan lupa bahawa manusia ni berasal dari Nabi Adam sebab itu yang menerangkan kenapa Melayu ada pelbagai pengaruh bahasa dan budaya serta pelbagai rupa berbanding bangsa lain yang hampir seragam rupa paras mereka.

    Melayu macam Melayu ada, ada macam cina, ada macam India, ada macam Arab, ada macam Afrika, ada macam Eropah, ada putih ada coklat ada hitam ada kuning.

    Lepas tu budaya kita pun berbilang-bilang, pergi Perak lain, pergi Jawa lain, pergi Bugis lain, pergi Kelantan lain, pergi Brunei lain dan sebagainya.., tapi semua dalam rumpun Melayu.

    Profesor di atas memanglah penipu

  2. Faktanya salah! Pameswara dtg dari jawa bukan dari india. Aku akui memang parameswra hindu tetapi dia bukan org india! Kalau sejarawan indonesia tahu, ketawa besar mereka.. haha!
