And he applied again via application to seek a court injunction to instruct the BN federal government to allow him to return to his hometown in Perak but his application was thrown out after the home ministry interfered.
Recently the deputy prime minister and Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that Chin Peng will not be forgiven due to his past deeds and the deaths of our soldiers that are still in the memories of their relations and so on.
The BN and Umno leaders are great pretenders and hypocrites. You know why we said this? There are a lots of reasons to elaborate the situation that does not serve Chin Peng fairly.
First, if they said that the MCP had committed attrocities during the 1948-60 emergency period, then why didn't they blame MCP's sponsor as well - the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It was wellknown that during the MCP insurgency in Malaya at that time the CCP channelled its support actively to MCP in terms of arms and financial supplies. Besides the CCP and its youth organisation Communist Youth League (CYL) also provide training and motivational courses for MCP cadres and their top party leaders as well.
And today, Umno and Pemuda Umno had established direct ties and close relations with the organs of the CCP and CYL via party to party visits and so on. We had seen in the news and reports. It started when prime minister Datuk Najib's father Tun Abdul Razak initiated Malaysia's diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China by paying tribute to Chairman Mao Tse Tung during his visit to Beijing at that time.
Talking about the attrocities again, during the Second World War, the Empire of Japan carried out more attrocities and damages to humankind than any other parties in the world. When Japan conquered the entire Asia continent during the war they committed mass murders, rape, tortures, burning, ethnic cleansing which are all against the Geneva Convention. And yet today Umno had forgiven them and make friends with them by inviting them into our country for investments and businesses.
There you see, Umno is a great pretender and hypocrite.
The other one is, might it be a race factor? Umno allowed the MCP Chairman Rashid Mydin, MCP Wanita Leader Shamsiah Fakeh and the Commander of the 10th Malay MCP Regiment Abdullah CD to return to our country and even allowed their memoirs and books to be published and distributed to our Malaysian readers.
Why did Umno allowed the MCP chairman and the other prominent Malay MCP leaders to return? Because they are Malay, Muslim and Bumiputra? And they disallow Chin Peng's return because he is a Chinese and non-Muslim? What if we ask Chin Peng to convert to Islam now and then resubmit his application to return to Malaysia? Maybe Umno may reconsider that.
Come on, today he is just an old man awaiting the end of his day. His party and its arm wing, the Malayan People's Liberation Army (MPLA) has been dismantled completely. According to Umno supreme council member and information minister Datuk Dr Rais Yatim he will pose a danger and shake national security of our nation if he returns. Just what actually Datuk Rais is trying to talk about? He is talking nonsense and his elaboration does not make any sense at all.
Datuk Rais' statement and the deputy premier's as well only represents a small Malay segment in the Umno leadership and their words does not carry the weight of all Malaysians.
Poor little old man, just because he is a Chinese, he cannot return to Malaysia but his Malay comrades can do so because they are Malay Muslim Bumiputras.
