I’d like to thank the ignorance of MP Rahman Dahlan for pissing me off with his statement yesterday, which he said “Sabah and Sarawak joined the Federation as the 12th and 13th States of Malaysia”. This has led me to research timelines to debunk & prove his trickery. Whats best is I have stumbled upon something else rather interesting.

Anyways..

If you have studied the Constitution, you will know that original ARTICLE 1 of • Index (A) does not match with the imbecile said. There is still no connection of his statement even in • Index (B). It is only in • Index (C) that his statement has a match. His statement is misleading and is totally bullshit.

• Index (A) – Original Version 1963

ARTICLE 1

The Colonies of north Borneo & Sarawak and the State of Singapore shall be federated withe the existing States of the Federation of Malaya as the States of Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore in accordance with the constitutional instruments annexed to this Agreement and the Federation thereafter will be called “Malaysia”.

• Index (B) – Before 27th August 1976 (ACTA354):-

ARTICLE 1(2)

The States of the Federation shall be –

(a) the States of Malaya, namely, Johore, Kedah, Kelanta, Malacca, Negeri, Sembilan, Pahang, Penang, Perak, Perlis, Selangor and Terengganu;

(b) the Borneo States, namely, Sabah and Sarawak; and

(c) the State of Singapore

• Index (C) – After 27th August 1976 (ACTA354):-

ARTICLE 1

(1) The Federation shall be known, in Malay and in English, by the name Malaysia.

(2) The States of the Federation shall be Johore, Kedah, Kelantan, Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Penang, Perak, Perlis, Sabah, Sarawak, Selangor and Trengganu.

(3) Subject to Clause (4), the territories of each of the States mentioned in Clause (2) are the territories comprised therein immediately before Malaysia Day.

(4) The territory of the State of Selangor shall exclude the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur established under the Constitution (Amendment) (No. 2) Act 1973 and the territory of the State of Sabah shall exclude the Federal Territory of Labuan established under the Constitution (Amendment) (no. 2) Act 1984, and both the said Federal Territories shall be territories of the Federation.

Therefore…

MP Rahman Dahlan statement is the most insulting and most ‘derhaka’ to every living Sabahan. This MP should be taught a lesson. An imbecile like him should be served the severest punishment by People Power.

I did mention earlier I stumbled upon something else rather interesting…

• The Double Six Crash, was a plane crash which took place on June 6, 1976 in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. In the afternoon following the accident, Deputy Chief Minister Harris Salleh was sworn in as the sixth Chief Minister of Sabah.

• On 27th August 1976 (41days after the tragedy) – ACT A354, Amendment of the Constitution was passed in Parliament (refer to • Index (C).

• Who was the CM of Sabah between 6th June 1976 to 27th August 1976 – the date that Parliament amended the Constitution to make Sabah a State of the Federation?

MP Rahman Dahlan, thanks to your loud mouth and rather tiny brain, we’ve all learned something about timelines.
