DI SEBALIK MUSIBAH MUNGKIN ADA FADHILATNYA - KERJASAMA ANTARA KERAJAAN PERSEKUTUAN DAN KERAJAAN NEGERI
DIKARANG OLEH: DR CHANDRA MUZAFFAR
9 JANUARI 2015
 
Yayasan 1 Malaysia mengalu-alukan pendekatan kerjasama kerajaan persekutuan dan kerajaan negeri di dalam menangani cabaran bencana alam yang melanda negeri di Pantai Timur desawarsa ini.
 
Usaha pemulihan dan pembaikan  sudah pasti memerlukan gandingan tenaga dan iltizam daripada kedua-dua pihak kerajaan persekutuan dan kerajaan negeri. Persoalan politik kerpartian dan isu-isu berkaitan personaliti harus di ketepikan agar usaha keseluruhannya dapat ditumpukan kepada kesejahteraan rakyat.
 
Yayasan 1 Malaysia melihat kesefahaman yang terjalin di antara kerajaan Barisan Nasional di peringkat persekutuan dengan kerajaan negeri khususnya di Kelantan sebagai suatu peluang yang luar biasa. Ia boleh memperkukuhkan prinsip kerjasama antara kerajaan pusat dan kerajaan negeri dalam konteks sistem persekutuan dalam negara kita sepertimana yang diidamkan di dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia.
 

 
THE ROLE OF ISLAM IN STATE AND SOCIETY --- THE CHOICE BEFORE US
WRITTEN BY: DR CHANDRA MUZAFFAR
29 DECEMBER 2014
 
In the last few weeks, letters in the media by various groups and individuals have once again brought to the fore the critical of the role of Islam in state and society.
 
For the Group of 25 (Star, December 8, 2014) Islamic law has to operate within the ambit of the Federal Constitution. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. The group argues that "religious bodies seem to be asserting authority beyond their jurisdiction; where issuance of various fatwa violate the Federal Constitution and breach the democratic and consultative process of shura..." The ensuing injustices demand that a consultative process be established which "will bring together experts in various fields, including Islamic and Constitutional laws, and those affected by the application of Islamic laws in adverse ways." G25 would like the Prime Minister, given his authority and resources, "to lead this consultative process."
 

 
A THIRD POSITION ON THE SEDITION ACT
WRITTEN BY: DR CHANDRA MUZAFFAR
11 DECEMBER 2014
 
The two adversarial positions that have emerged in the controversy over the Sedition Act are a sad reflection of the state of ethnic relations in the country today. Many of those who are determined to preserve, perpetuate and strengthen the Sedition Act see it as a bastion of Malay political power while a lot of those who want it abolished hope that its elimination will lead to the demise of Malay political power. These superficial communal sentiments on both sides of the divide have been largely responsible for the marginalization of a third more rational, balanced position on the Act which transcends the politics of ethnicity and serves the larger interests of the nation.

27 JANUARY 2015
 
From articles and letters in the media, meetings and seminars among the intelligentsia and conversations with people from different walks of life, it appears that there is a great deal of concern about ethnics relations in the country.
 
Concerned Malaysians should focus their energies on how together we can improve the ethnic situation on this beloved land of ours. Yayasan 1 Malaysia would like to suggest the following five approahes.
 

 
WE MUST REJECT ALL FORMS OF EXTREMISM
WRITTEN BY: TAN SRI LEE LAM THYE
6 JANUARY 2015
 
We have bade farewell to a traumatic, tragedy-filled year 2014 and welcomed 2015 which we hope will be a better and promising year.
 
A new year brings with it new resolutions, new hopes and new aspirations, and obviously different people have different resolutions.
 
To the 1Malaysia Foundation, if there is a one new year resolution which should be pursued, it is the need for all Malaysians to resolve to stand firm for diversity and moderation as a way towards reducing conflicts and building a strong foundation of unity in our multiracial nation.
 
 
 
SEMANGAT KEKITAAN, KEBANGGAAN BERSAMA
DIKARANG OLEH: ONG YUEN LING
5 JANUARI 2015
 
Yayasan 1 Malaysia amat berbangga dan menghargai kerjasama dan keikhlasan sukarelawan dari pelbagai kaum yang terlibat dalam memberi bantuan kepada mangsa-mangsa banjir di Pantai Timur. Keikhlasan kumpulan sukarelawan yang turun membantu menerusi syarikat persendirian, pergerakan NGO mahupun melalui kemampuan peribadi ini harus dipuji memandangkan kehadiran mereka bukanlah di atas arahan sesiapa tetapi atas niat hendak membantu tanpa mengira latarbelakang mangsa.
 
Proses pemulihan yang kini sedang dijalankan turut menampakkan penglibatan ramai sukarelawan. Yayasan 1 Malaysia berharap semangat kekitaan dan empati ini akan berterusan sehinggalah proses pemulihan ini selesai.
 
Sehubungan itu, Yayasan 1 Malaysia ingin menyeru kepada semua Sahabat Yayasan 1 Malaysia agar menyertai proses pemulihan yang sedang dijalankan sama ada yang dianjurkan oleh badan kerajaan mahupun swasta. Yayasan 1 Malaysia berharap agar semua Sahabat Yayasan 1 Malaysia dapat melahirkan sifat empati mereka dengan memberi bantuan kepada semua mangsa-mangsa banjir tanpa mengira latarbelakang mereka.
 


 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 




 


Bersatu Menyelesaikan Kepincangan Sosial Negara

Empati mendatangi kita dalam berbagai bentuk dan seringkali kita terlepas pandang betapa empati sepatutnya menjadi reaksi spontan yang tidak perlu di olah atau di nukilankan dalam berita atau cerita sensasi yang selalunya trajis.

Malah telah menjadi seperti satu lumrah masyarakat kita yang sangat tertarik dengan pendekatan mensensasi kejadian trajis tanpa mempedulikan akan pedas lada atau masin garamnya.

Kelibat adik Siti Sofea Emelda seorang anak kecil yang berumur 2 tahun akan selalu kelihatan di Pasaraya Kotaraya Kuala Lumpur bagi mereka yang berniaga dan lazim ke sana. Anak kecil ini juga tidak asing kepada kumpulan NGO "Pertiwi Soup Kitchen” yang sering meringankan seketika beban pencarian sesuap nasi bagi mereka yang tidak mempunyai tempat berteduh atau di label sebagai golongan gelandangan kotaraya.
