Robert Kuok: Politicians who say Japanese invaders liberated us from British ‘racists’

Author:   |    Publish date:


KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 16 ― Malaysian tycoon Robert Kuok today lambasted Malaysian politicians who claim that Japanese occupiers had liberated then Malaya from British colonialists, calling those who do so “racists”.

In a rare interview with the media, Kuok told Osaka-based Asahi Shimbun that although he now has a cordial relationship with the Japanese, he hopes they will not “repeat their stupid actions” during World War II. 

“To me, that is a racist statement. It is true that the Japanese soldiers did not do as much harm to the Malays as they did to the Chinese,” he replied, when asked about such politicians.

“The Japanese felt that their natural enemies were Shinajin (Chinese). But the Malaysian Chinese who were killed, are they not Malaysians?” he reportedly asked. 

Kuok had, prior to that, refused to change the minds of Japanese who believe that its colonial forces had liberated Malaya. 

“There is nothing I can say or do because I cannot change what you want to believe. All I can say is, what if the shoe is on the other foot? If your mother, your sister, your wife, your girlfriend, were brutalised?

“I have worked with Japanese companies and I have an understanding of the Japanese people. I am a friend of the Japanese. But at the same time, I hope they will not repeat their stupid actions,” he said.

The paper had interviewed him to share his experience of the fighting in the Asia-Pacific region during World War II.

The Empire of Japan invaded British Malaya and occupied it between 1941 and 1945, until its surrender to the Allied Forces.

The Federation of Malaya would afterwards be administered again by the British until its Independence in 1957, and later form Malaysia with Singapore, North Borneo (now Sabah), and Sarawak in 1963.

The so-called “Sugar King” is now the 104th richest man in the world according to Forbes, down from 96th place in last year’s edition.

Now based in Hong Kong, he was part of the Council of Eminent Persons that advised Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his Cabinet in the first 100 days of Pakatan Harapan’s election victory.

Another day another polemic statement! Robert Kuok should keep it to himself! The thing is, he worked for japanese during the short occupation! Robert Kuok has always been an opportunist! After merdeka, he got very close to the royals and UMNO politicians! So, it's best for him not to say something that may backfire!

nash2233 (learning) khat is pointless when you cannot write or read Jawi...

"Perhaps our education minister (Maszlee Malik) is a genius and people like us with average intellect are unable to fathom his actions.

calvintaneng PUT POLITICS ASIDE

LISTEN TO THESE PRODUCTIVE WORDS:


YOU MUST BUY A STOCK WITH GOOD FUNDAMENTAL FOR SAFETY

EXAMPLE IS UZMA AT 66.5 SEN WITH NTA OF RM1.54 (MORE THAN 50% DISCOUNT TO NTA WHICH GIVES MARGIN OF SAFETY

THEN YOU MUST KNOW A STOCK CAN MOVE IF THERE IS COMING CATALYST

WHAT CATALYST UZMA GOT?

ANSWER

UZMA GOT 12 MONTHS CONTRACT JOBS (PLUS MANY OTHER JOBS AWARDED) TO DISMANTLE & DECOMMISSION 22 OIL RIGS

BECAUSE OF MONSOON FROM NOVEMBER TO MARCH 2019 (5 MONTHS OF MONSOON IN SOUTH CHINA SEA) ONLY 6 OIL RIGS WERE DISMANTLED

SO AFTER APRIL 2019 MONSOON OVER UZMA WILL CONTINUE TO DISMANTLE 16 MORE OIL RIGS

THESE GOOD MONTHS OF APRIL TO JUNE 2019 SHOULD REPORT BETTER PROFITS FOR UZMA

SO HIGH PROFITS WILL BE A CATALYST AS PEOPLE WANT "EARNINGS"

AND ANOTHER PONTER IS UZMA DIRECTORS ARE TURNING BULLISH AND BUYING UZMA SHARES WITH THEIR OWN POCKET MONIES

SO ALL FACTORS POINT TO UZMA AS A GREAT BUY NOW!!!

VWWong Robert Kuok replied when ask if he is still a Malaysian. "A tiger will never change it's stripe". Whatever that means. Funny, for a loyal malaysian to stay in hong Kong half his life. None of his children will ever want to setup base in Malaysia. If I were them, I would have done the same looking at Malaysia policies. But Malaysia, is still anytime better than PRC. The Communist Party can't tolerate even a single criticism.

One of the Reason is no eye see, bcos seeing make him very SAd loh..!!
