    Bloggers are liars…??

    Posted by CJCM on March 11th, 2007 | EMail This Post

    A Malaysian Minister had branded bloggers as liars…. he also said of 10,000 unemployed bloggers, 8,000 are women. I am not sure whether he meant these 10,000 bloggers are Malaysian or not but he certainly rocked the boat. As blogger, I feel sad, disappointed and angry. Granted… there is always a bad apple in so many apples, but I think Tengku Adnan is wrong in the way he responded to Nila Tanzil’s report on her dissapointing experience with the Tourism Ministry officials recently. I have written about this in more detail in my other blog.. please let us know your thoughts… as readers and bloggers.

    Below is the transalation by J-Talk on the newspaper article from Sin Chew:

    Tengku Adnan: Bloggers are Liars
    80% are Unemployed Women
    updated:2007-03-08 20:11:32: MYT

    (Kuala Lumpur) The Tourism Minsiter Tunku Adnan lashed out today (Mar 8, 2007) that all bloggers on the Internet are liars, out of which 80% are unemployed women.

    “All bloggers are liars, they cheat people using all kinds of methods. From my understanding, out of 10,000 unemployed bloggers, 8,000 are women.”

    Tengku was addressing the media at the 2007 Malaysia GP Sales when he was asked about allegations made on a blog by a female TV presenter. The guests present were shocked at first, but burst into laughter.

    He said he may lose some female voters but did not retract his statement or indicate that he was just joking.

    He said that bloggers spread rumours, disrupt social harmony and many bloggers are slanderous and are cheating people with their blogs.

    “All bloggers are not in favour of national unity. Our country has been successful because we are very tolerant with each other, if not, there will be civil war, the Malays will kill the Chinese, the Chinese will take revenge and kill the Malays, and the Indian will kill everyone.”

    He urged the rakyat not to simply trust bloggers, and gamble our future away because the achievement we gain in the 50 years of independence is not an easy task.

    “We have to show the world our positive attitude, if the world learn to be as tolerant as us, the world will be peaceful, without war or civil war.”

    He said that the tourism ministry has been promoting the country for the rakyat’s benefit, not just to benefit his own ministry.

    He stressed that the Malaysian tourism industry is now in a critical moment as the competition from the neighbouring countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines will be stiffer and Malaysia must respond proactively.
