Civil servant should remain impartial and stay out of AMP-Nizam issue
The Hogwash Dispenser of the Week award has been given to Azmoon Ahmad, chairman of the AMP - More hogwash from AMP Chairman on the Nizam issue. Bit it looks like Ho Ka Wei, Director (Corporate Communications Division) from the Ministry of Culture Community and Youth, is not satisfied. He wants that title for himself.
Here is his forum letter to the Straits Times.
YESTERDAY’S report (“Ex-AMP director drops out of May Day protest”) quoted Mr Nizam Ismail, former board director of the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP), as saying that he presented the Community Forum (ComFor) proposal as an innocuous idea that was raised at AMP’s convention last June. He denied that it was a race-based approach to politics that he had personally pushed for.
In fact, ComFor was a repackaging of the earlier “Collective Leadership”proposal that the AMP had advanced in 2000. Then Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong rejected that proposal and explained why it was unwise to set up a Malay national leadership chosen exclusively by the Malay community.
The AMP’s report for its convention last year talked about “reposition(ing) MMOs (Malay/Muslim organisations) into organisations that engage a national, inter-ethnic, issue-oriented agenda”.
Mr Nizam played a leading role at the convention and championed this idea strongly.
I made a post pertaining to above. In my post I mentioned that the PAP doesn’t like competition. ComFor had objectives that directly competed with the govt’s own platform, Community Leaders Forum (CLF) - PM Lee twists AMP’s arm – thou shalt not compete against thy govt.
At the convention, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong opposed this idea. He cautioned AMP about venturing into civil society issues not primarily to do with the Malay/Muslim community. He reiterated that we should not discuss matters that concern all Singaporeans, organised into Malay groups, Chinese groups and Indian groups, each with a different ethnic perspective.
Such a racial basis to national affairs and politics would pull our people apart and destroy our racial harmony. This has been a consistent stand of the Singapore Government since 1959.
The Government was relieved that AMP eventually decided to abandon ComFor, after discussing the matter further after the convention.
That’s quite a hypocritical load of manure. If Comfor would destroy the fabric of unity between races as what Ka Wei so colourfully puts, what about the govt approved CDAC, Mendaki, Sinda etc?
We note that the same Straits Times report quoted AMP chairman Azmoon Ahmad as saying that the AMP wants to move on and continue with its mission for the community.
The Government looks forward to continue working with the AMP so long as its focus remains the uplifting of the Malay/Muslim community.

There is really no necessity for Ka Wei to comment on the AMP-Nizam issue. He is a civil servant and should remain impartial. The hogwash dispensing should be done by politicians or politicians-wannabe.
Ka Wei, being a civil servant, has overstepped his boundary. Too bad, the Hogwash Dispenser of the Week award will remain in Azmoon’s hands.
