With the stringent face sitting at the counter next to a poster with the following huge printout: Have I greeted you?
Have I smile at you?
Have I look at you when I talking to you?
(All the above was not heeded by the person behind the counter. The poster was only a decoration item at JPN like the 1 Malay-sia logo)
JPN Staff: Ada apa?
Applicant: Kasi borang
JPN Staff: While looking at the borang (Mana IC?)
Applicant: IC belum buat
JPN Staff: Kenapa belum buat?
Applicant: Tadak Surat beranak
JPN Staff: Siapa punya ini?
Applicant: Saya punya
JPN Staff: Yang ini semua?
Applicant: Anak-anak saya.
JPN Staff: (Unhappily looking around)
Applicant: Minta lagi 2 borang
JPN Staff: Ini sudah ada pah
Applicant: Untuk anak –anak saya
JPN Staff: Anak pun tiada surat beranak?
JPN Staff: Sudah Kawinkah?
JPN Staff: Ada sijil perkahwinan?
JPN Staff: Perkahwinan ada daftart atau tidak?
Applicant: Taktahu. Kahwin di kuil.
JPN Staff: Kenapa tidak daftar?
HRP Vol: Encik kita cuma minta nomber dan borong semakan sahaja. Tugas kamu serahkan nombor dan borong sahaja. Itu sahaja. Yang lain soalan kita boleh jawap kepada pegawai yang akan soial siasat.
(With great hesitation the reception counter staff gave the number and the application forms.)
Now is the bottom of the story. Say we put ourselves in the position of the applicant. What would we possibly have done? We would leave JPN office without anything just pulling our children along out of the office empty handed as a stateless person forever.
This is exactly what the UMNO racist government wants each and every poor Indian to do. Leave empty handed and as a stateless person with all the hassle they the UMNO government have created and at last put the blame on the poor Indians saying that the JPN door was wide open and the Indians were reluctant to apply for the birth certificate. How would anybody walk into UMNO JPN office when the racist officers have a pre-determined mindset not to entertain or with a pre-determined plan not to issue any birth certificate to make these poor Indians as illegal immigrant in their own land where they were born. Later some BN Indian mandors will joint in the pretext of being middle man between the community and the government agencies as what the wayang they are portraying now in the 1 Malay-sia road show to solve Indians problem which they were doing wayang kulit of trying to solve for the past 53 years.
With the above scenario event we were agitated with the questions by the JPN reception staff. Mind you this is the first hurdle at the first counter and just imagine down the road with many hurdles to go just to submit the application forms for a birth certificate which is rightly should been issued upon birth.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of the problems the poor Indians face with the UMNO National Registration Department on a day to day basis
The scenario is entirely different if you were a Malay muslim or event a Indonesian muslim. You will be treated with red carpet with a different tone and different look.
THIS IS WHAT WE CALL NAJIB’S 1MALAY-SIA
