In an illusory democracy like Malaysia, the primary strategy of politicians on the verge of losing power is to tighten up the public sphere and silence oppositional voices within or outside their party rankd. Ayahanda is in fact one of the highest titles after Paduka given to leaders within several Malay NGOs including Pekida. Not after 55 years of UMNO! Deceit; gerrymandering; State-controlled media; vote buying; phantom voters; postal votes; useless ink, new voters from illegal immigrants, public machinery used to support votes for incumbent, crooked government…. In that same vein, the reaction of some colleagues was very passionate, ranging from intellectual curiosity to harsh suspicion.

Essentially, Pekida should be seen as a brand used by numerous organisations registered as NGOs, and under other names, running cultural cum political activities with close links to political parties. Greg Lopez – 05 Apr, These leaders have slowly gained new attention in the media, portraying themselves as legitimate political voices, including president Syed Husain.

But some of these groups are indeed multi-ethnic organisations operating for whoever pekica the most. The rhetoric is the same, the scapegoats pkida the same, and the attempt to establish a mythic Tanah Melayu with purebred Malays no such thing existspure Islam no such thing exists and the minorities satisfied with Dhimmi status in a soon-to-be Malay Islamic State no such thing will exist are all part of the dream world and unrealistic and immature expectations of many Malays, incapable of managing their own affairs, tied as they are, to UMNO, political bosses and delusions of a Malay Caliphate that will never come to pass.
In earlywhen my first articles on Pekida were published by New Mandala epkida, and republished across several news peklda and blogs from every political persuasion, hundreds of comments were posted praising my work, sometimes with exaggeration. Collusion between politicians and the underworld or connivance militancy in the Malay world is old news; excellent studies on similar phenomenon in neighboring Indonesia between figures called Premanor gangsters, and politics have also been made.

UMNO gangsters, organised crime or a missionary body? This re-organisation of the grey zone where politics and crime meet, and where connivance militants burgeon, took place as I was on the verge of finishing my PhD dissertation, events rubber stamping my entire argument. In a news interview, a Malay NGO leader offered to date me, rather than having an intellectual debate I have not made my mind up yet.
The fact is that the relationship between politicians and the underworld pekidx always existed. Leave this field empty. Leave this field empty. The problem is what happens when the potential perpetrators of violence, like the disenfranchised youth who join these groups hoping for a social and economical lift, cannot be controlled anymore.
Peeling back the layers of Pekida – New Mandala
The popular myth surrounding Pekida is that it is an umbrella for several sub-groups, spread throughout the country, and that it has the support of pekidz profile UMNO politicians and businessmen, and that Pekida is allegedly involved in criminal activities. But here are a few recent developments that hopefully shed light on his emotional, rather than intellectual, turmoil. A few years ago when I gave my first conference talk on Pelidathe intricate network of gangs and NGOs in Malaysian politics, I was very grateful to the organisers at ISEAS in Singapore for successfully gathering a mixed audience of 40 people.
From my experience in Indonesia, the use of paramilitary organization or mass organizations is accepted part of Indonesian political life.

The details of the seminar follow below the fold: I have not made a discovery, I just say out loud and clear, peklda clear as an academic can be, what was lying there, in the dust.

Pekidx links between the underworld and politics in Malaysia have never been clearer. In Politok, where politics runs amok in Malaysiasodomy is a weapon of massive repression, corruption is synonymous with donation, patronage is a gauge of transparency, and bosses run the show. The difference is almost all political parties have a paramilitary wing to act as muscle.
