Johor separatists

Apparently, there are quite a number of people who support the idea of my home state Johor to break away from Malaysia.

This is one of them from my previous post,

"I believe Johor will regress to be a real third world autocratic country if it is to go on its own."

What, "third world autocratic country" - you mean like Malaysia currently : )

"My friend said that it all started with that ridiculous Muslim-only laundry nonsense in Muar."

Not at all.

DYMM Sultan Johor & TMJ have been very steadfast in drawing the line on the Najis al-Songlap regime and extremism. They have been doing so for years already.

Actually Johor would be VERY successful on its own.

If Singapore did not regress or become a pawn (BTW, China owns the pinklips crooked backside due to 1MDB bailout via ERCL), then why not Johor with the wise leadership of the Sultan?

Less racism, less corruption, more harmony.


No problem at all.

Develop links with Singapore and make JB a regional centre of excellence.

An independent Johor would thrive.

Safe from the hooves of the hippo thief.

From the way the comment was worded, I believe this Johor separatist is a Pakatan supporter.

There were several other similar comments.

I'm a bit confused because all these while I thought Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who now leads Pakatan as its chairman was against any idea for the break up of Malaysia.

Or maybe these separatists were the confused ones....I'm not sure....

I never believe Johor will separate from Malaysia but since there are those who insisted on it, I decided to write this for academic purposes.

Anyway, from such comments, I concluded that the Johor separatists wanted some sort of a monarchy system if the state is ever to go on its own.

Well, basically, there are two types of monarchy systems. Please click on the links to learn more about them;

Absolute monarchy

Constitutional monarchy

I believe what we have now in Malaysia is a constitutional monarchy while absolute monarchy is something like what they have in Brunei.

I think ours is better.

It's more democratic as we the rakyat have the ultimate power to decide where our country is heading.

And I prefer Johor to remain part of that democratic Malaysia.

Of course the separatists claimed that Malaysia is no longer democratic and therefore they support for Johor to leave the federation.

I think such argument is very irresponsible because I believe that Malaysia is still a democracy.

Well, there are still opposition parties and people who support them and they are quite free to say a lot of things against the government which if they were in Brunei would land them in jail.

They would end up in jail for those too if they were in Singapore. The rich supposedly democratic island republic still got ISA, okay.

Even if the Malaysian democracy is flawed, I don't think separatism is the answer. It's our responsibility to correct it and I believe we still have the power to do so.

Okay, I also feel that those who preach Johor separatism need to learn a bit more about the state's history.

This is a simple one I took from Wikipedia,

In the early 16th century, the Sultanate of Johor was founded by the Alauddin Riayat Shah II, the son of Mahmud Shah, the last Sultan of Melaka who fled from the invading Portuguese in Melaka. Johor sultanate was one of the two successor states of the Melaka empire. On Malacca's defeat by the Portuguese in 1511, Alauddin Riayat Shah II established a monarchy in Johor, which posed a threat to the Portuguese. The Sultanate of Perak—established by Mahmud Shah's other son, Muzaffar Shah I—was the other successor state of Malacca. During Johor's peak, the whole of Pahang, present day Indonesian territories of the Riau archipelago, and part of Sumatra Island was under Johor's rule.[8]
A series of succession struggles were interspersed with strategic alliances struck with regional clans and foreign powers, which maintained Johor's political and economic hold in the Straits. In competition with the Acehnese of northern Sumatra and the port-kingdom of Melaka under Portuguese rule, Johor engaged in prolonged warfare with their rivals, often striking alliances with friendly Malay states and with the Dutch.[citation needed] In 1641, Johor in co-operation with the Dutch succeeded in capturing Melaka. By 1660, Johor had become a flourishing entrepôt, although weakening and splintering of the empire in the late seventeenth and eighteenth century reduced its sovereignty.[citation needed]
In the 18th century, the Bugis of Sulawesi and the Minangkabau of Sumatra controlled the political powers in the Johor-Riau Empire.[citation needed] However, in the early 19th century, Malay and Bugis rivalry commanded the scene. In 1819, the Johor-Riau Empire was divided up into the mainland Johor, controlled by the Temenggong, and the Sultanate of Riau-Lingga, controlled by the Bugis.[citation needed] In 1855, under the terms of a treaty between the British in Singapore and Sultan Ali of Johor, control of the state was formally ceded to Dato' Temenggong Daing Ibrahim, with the exception of the Kesang area (Muar), which was handed over in 1877. Temenggong Ibrahim opened up Bandar Tanjung Puteri (later to become Johor's present-day capital) in south Johor as a major town.[citation needed]

Flag of Johor. The colour blue represents the State Government, the colour red for warriors defending the state, the white crescent and 5-sided star represent the monarchy and Islam.
Temenggong Ibrahim was succeeded by his son, Dato' Temenggong Abu Bakar, who later took the title Seri Maharaja Johor by Queen Victoriaof England. In 1886, he was formally crowned the Sultan of Johor. Sultan Abu Bakar of Johor (1864–1895) implemented a state constitution, developed a British-style administration and constructed the Istana Besar, the official residence of the Sultan. For his achievements, Sultan Abu Bakar is known by the title "Father of Modern Johor".[citation needed] The increased demand for black pepper and gambier in the nineteenth century lead to the opening up of farmlands to the influx of Chinese immigrants, which created Johor's initial economic base.[9][10] The Kangchusystem was put in place with the first settlement of Kangkar Tebrau established in 1844.[11] The decline of the Kangchu economy at the end of the 19th century coincided with the opening of the railway line connecting Johor Bahru and the Federated Malay States in 1909 and the emergence of rubber plantations throughout the state.[12] Under the British Resident system, Sultan Ibrahim, Sultan Abu Bakar's successor, was forced to accept a British adviser in 1904. D.G. Campbell was dispatched as the first British adviser to Johor. From the 1910s to the 1940s, Johor emerged as Malaya's top rubber producing state, a position it has held until recently.[citation needed] Johor was also until recently the largestoil palm producer in Malaysia.[citation needed]
During World War II, Johor Bahru became the last city on the Malay peninsula to fall to the Japanese. Allied Forces, Australian, Malayan and Indian forces held out for four days in what was known as the Battle of Gemas,[13] the General Yamashita Tomoyuki had his headquarters on top of Bukit Serene and coordinated the downfall of Singapore.
Johor gave birth to the Malay opposition that derailed the Malayan Union plan. Malays under Dato' Onn Jaafar's leadership formed the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) in Johor on 11 May 1946. (UMNO is currently the main component party of Malaysia's ruling Barisan Nasional coalition.) In 1948, Johor joined the Federation of Malaya, which gained Independence in 1957.

Learnt something, right?

Well, I like reading history.

It puts things in perspective.

It's cool too.

Okay, before I end this post, here's a very simple history lesson on my favourite foreign country - Japan;


  1. I am no fan of Najib or UMNO though I think BN will win the next GE14, but I vehemently object to Johore being separated from Federation of Malaysia.

    1. I am not a fan of Najih too and BN will win.

      Prof Kangkung

    2. Pros Kantoi,

      I am not a fan of your spelling.

      "Najih" is only the pronunciation in certain East Coast states.

      You, however, are from East Jinjang, where you sell pilate DVDs and earn a few ringgit as MCA cybeltlooper.

      Prof Sawi

    3. I am no fan of Najib or UMNO though I think BN will win the next GE14

      the problem is you are not doing anything about it
      educate your friends and family about this idiot UMNO

  2. Thefunny thing about claims that Malaysia has "no democracy" and "no freedom of speech" is that numerous political parties in the ruling coalition and the opposition pact can freely slang each other and bloggers on all sides of the divide can posy and slang each other.

    If we were in Singapore, I'm sure many of us will be under detention.

    The problem with Malaysian democracy is that it is more of a dysfunctional democracy where there is a thunderous amount of noise but not very much constructive action.

    An Indian political scientist from India once told me that India is a dysfunctional democracy where opposition controlled states can block initiatives by the national government, so it is hard to get things done.

    On the other hand, the China government can decide on some course for development and it will be done.

    Right now the 19th Communist Party of China National Congress is in session and is working out the next five-year plan moving forward and this plan will be implemented by subordinate state organs over the next five years.

    Heck! Even President Donald Trump (the executive) faces so much opposition from Congress & Senate (the legislature) and the Supreme Court (the judiciary), so thankfully for the rest of the worldas well as the American people, the U.S. also is some kind of dysfunctional democracy.

    1. "Even President Donald Trump (the executive) faces so much opposition from Congress & Senate (the legislature) and the Supreme Court (the judiciary), so thankfully for the rest of the world as well as the American people, the U.S. also is some kind of dysfunctional democracy."

      Actually that kind of proves the opposite - it's a functional democracy (but a ******-up country in many ways) because that fat orange clown Trump can't simply do as he wishes.

  3. Annie

    Your comment,

    "From the way the comment was worded, I believe this Johor separatist is a Pakatan supporter."

    So you are saying that Pakatan preaching Johor Separation from the federation?

    Really? Come on.....

    Look, Johor will never separate from the federation because a lot of Johorean married people from Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Perlis, Kedah, Penang etc.

    All become like Rojak, how you can you separate.? It is not going to happen, not in a million years.

    What we should be worrying is the two state that separated with an ocean that we need to fly to get across.

    Look like we have one policy for peninsula and another for Borneo.

    This hudud and Taliban thing is not accepted at the Borneo States but they are pushing it. It will jeopardize our relation with the Borneo States.

    Even Johorean reject the Taliban. If they make jokes about making passport to Johor, (like what you said in your earlier post) who cares, let them say. We will reject Taliban nonetheless.

    why should Johorean accept the Taliban?

  4. "Well, there are still opposition parties and people who support them and they are quite free to say a lot of things against the government which if they were in Brunei would land them in jail."

    The Malaysian system is largely rotten, as evidenced by the fact that the world's biggest kleptocrat was able to hand-pick barua to clear him locally (but not internationally) for stealing "only" 4.5 billion USD directly from Malaysians.

    (It's truly funny watching the Umno-payroll prostitutes like ancient dried-up whore RPK trying to spin Sabah case, while ignoring the hippo in the room.)

    That's the difference:

    In the USA, even Trump cannot shut down investigations into himself. Nuller the special counsel is deep into Trump's finances.

    If Malaysia had an independent system, then Big Mama, Pinklips, Jho and Riza would be in jail already.

    Along with most Umno KBU.

  5. "Anyway, from such comments, I concluded that the Johor separatists wanted some sort of a monarchy system if the state is ever to go on its own."

    "Some sort?"

    Meaning what?

    DYMM Sultan Johor would still be the Ruler. I doubt his majesty would want an absolute monarchy.

    His majesty would maybe return to the spirit of a new (Johor) Constitution, the way Tunku saw it in 1957.

    I think there would be far less race & religion bullshit if Johor were on its own.

    Just look how much healthier Sarawak is in that respect, being immune from Umno diseases.

  6. One good side effect of a separate Johor?

    No more people like this:


  7. Why should we? We should stay. I am going to rub my pork-laced cum on RM10 and use it to buy nasi lemak.

    1. Haha.serve them right.

      Prof Kangkung

    2. You should also rub pork fats onto an almost empty gas-cylinder.

    3. Kalo tak nak was-was, cara mudah adalah samak duit RM1, 10, dan 20. Tiap-tiap malam cuci dengan satu bahagian tanah dan 7 air.

      Orang putih kata money laundering. Cuci duit.

      Betul juga saranan saudara RD, tong gas pun boleh samak juga, samak sekali aja kemudian boleh guna tanpa was-was berapa bulan.

      Itupun kalaulah kita nak ikut ulama Taliban.

      Kalau nak ikut ular dalam semak, macam-macam lagi,

      Kalau nak ikut ulama yang betul, muktabar, tak payah susah-susah.

    4. Prof Kangkung, like to see MO1 & bAawang kiss up before GE14 muakakaka

    5. Like to see a threesome kissy by prof kangkung, MOI & bAwang terbaik LOLOL

  8. Saya ingat la annie kerabat diraja johor lebih selamat dan sepatutnya bahagia duduk dalam Malaysia berbanding duduk di luar.

    Kalau Johor keluar Malaysia mereka tidak lagi kebal dari caci-maki rakyat Malaysia yang memendam rasa.Takhta mereka pun tidak semestinya terjamin sekiranya berlaku pemberontakan dari dalam atau angkara hasutan pihak asing.Johor bukan macam Brunei.

    Lebih baik bersyukur dengan apa yang ada sekarang.Emosi,ego dan kebesaran terjamin,InsyaAllah.Kuasa yang ada pun dah cukup besar dan mampu sebenarnya kalau benar-benar nak membuat dasar untuk membela rakyat.

  9. Annie,

    I do not support the Johor separation.

    However, the idea of Bangsa Johor, is quite interesting.

    In the internet, there are people who are fascinated with Bangsa Johor idea where people of different races can live in harmony and respect each other, so they want to become Bangsa Johor, but they are not not born in Johor.

    For me, I was born in Johor so, automatically I am Bangsa Johor.

    However, for people who are not born in Johor, that will be a problem.

    I think, the Johor Government should look into possibility of people who was born outside Johor to convert to become Bangsa Johor.

    They still retain as Malaysian but Bangsa Johor.

    1. Both my parents are Johoreans, but I was born and raised in Perak until I finished high school. I live in KL most of my adult life and only lived in Johore for 2 years. So now I am unsure whether I am a Perakian, or a Bangsa Johor or a KLite? My kids all born in KL.

    2. I was born and grew up in Johor.Whatever bangsa concept is it is still tinged with racism.
      As long as you identify yourself as Malays,Chinese,Indians etc there is no such thing as Bangsa Johor,Kelantan,Perak etc.
      Yang ada ialah bangsa Melayu,Cina, india etc.
      Just like a song lyrics 'Imagine', we can only imagine but the truth is much different.
      Like Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said, I am a Malay first and Malaysian second.

    3. Pros Kantoi,

      Having being caught red-handed there is little point in pretending any more.

      You are about as "Malay" as char siew pau.

      Your best function in life is to comb through hippo droppings, hoping to find a leftover pink diamond.

  10. Dear Annie,

    Thanks for the link to the video.
    Am a fan of History too and that is one osem piece.

    Even John Green praises it.:D


  11. Annie,

    Johor is going nowhere, OK?

    I sorta recall a couple of years ago when the TMJ discussed the matter.

    But, discussing secession and actually seceding are two different things.

    At the moment, I think that Johor is benefiting from being in the federation, so why leave?

    Plus I think Johor already has close ties with Singapore now, so how much closer to Singapore can Johor get if it decides to secede?

    My guess, not very much closer, so no real additional advantage there.

    No, there is no need for Johor to secede any time soon.


  12. Annie,

    I saw the hidden message that you had wanted to send to your readers here, it's this sentence in the History of Johor:

    "However, in the early 19th century, Malay and Bugis rivalry commanded the scene."

    That's right. Malay is Malay, Bugis is Bugis. Bugis is not Malay, and therefore Malay is not Bugis.

    Mappadulung, Daeng, Mattimung, Karaeng, Sandrobone, these Bugis pirates are not Malay.

    The members of United Malays National Organisation were f**ked. They have a non Malay as president for the third time!

    The Felda Malays were b*ggered. They have entrusted their life long savings to the non Malay thief!

    The Pakatan people were fooled. The UMNO Malays are not their enemy, the UMNO Malays are also the victims of a con job.

    Thank you Annie. You have told the truth bravely.

    1. "The members of United Malays National Organisation were f**ked. They have a non Malay as president for the third time!"

      Even better...

      Zahid takes over = led by Javanese

      H20 takes over = led by Circassian (look it up)

      KJ takes over = led by mamak again

      The Melayu tulen cannot win.

    2. As long as all Malays seanterio are Muslims, that is the bottom line laaa.

      I got Java blood, but dont speak Java. But who cares.

    3. Anon 10:18,

      The real bottom line , is that in Malaysia people of Islamic faith and of similar colour skin are joining and forming a larger majority in order to exert political bullying on minority.

      That's the bottom line.

      You don't see one single indon calling him/herself a MELAYU. In the roughly 4 thousand islands throughout Republik Indonesia, there are about 250 million indon who habitually speaks the lingua franca and professing the religion of Islam, yet none would call themselves MELAYU.

      Even Microsoft, Apple inc, Samsung and Huawei would let you choose between Malay OR Indonesian Language. See? You are not the same.

      The indon even threatened to invade Malaysia and they thrown shit into the Malaysian Embassy in Indonesia, remember?

      But out of political expediency and other unknown reasons you are very keen to term it MELAYU KEPULAUAN.

      But they don't regard themselves as Melayu... and they hate you.

    //That's right. Malay is Malay, Bugis is Bugis. Bugis is not Malay, and therefore Malay is not Bugis//

    Actually, I think you are wrong.

    If I am not mistaken, there is no such thing as a "Malay".

    There is a nominal bunch of folks called "Malays" but they come from Sumatra, Java, Celebes, Sulawesi, etc etc.

    It's sorta like the Indians or the Chinese, except that the Indians and the Chinese have their own countries called India and China.

    When push comes to shove, an Indian will admit to being a Tamil, or Telugu or Kannada or Malayalam or Gujarati, etc.

    The Chinese are the same - they magically become Teochew, Hokkien, Cantonese, Hakka, Hailam, etc when put on the spot :)

    I suspect that Malays are the same.

    My Malay friend is extremely proud that she is a Javanese and I know she considers herself a Javanese first, Malay second :)

    I believe there are kampungs in Selangor where life can be tough if you don't speak Javanese :)

    Don't get me wrong, everybody is welcomed to live there but please lah, make the effort to learn how to speak Javanese :)

    Otherwise, they will grudgingly speak Bahasa Melayu with you :)


    Well, in my travels, I do get asked where I am from and my response has been the same all these years - I am a Malaysian of Chinese ancestry.

    I find that the people who are most curious about my Chinese ancestry are .. yes, you guessed it ... China Chinese :)

    For some strange reason, they ALWAYS tell me that they think I am Korean or Japanese, like WTF!!

    Once, I asked someone why she thought I was Korean or Japanese and her reply was that it was because I had long hair!!

    I am now considering to shave half my head and plait the remaining hair in the Manchu style, just for a laugh.


    1. Gladiator,

      A Tibetan monk used to say, that there's no Mahayana nor Theravada in the Buddha's teachings. The difference was created due to the respective intention of its devotees.

      The definition of MELAYU is an ever changing concept, the term MELAYU changes every time when it suits the interest of the power that be.

      You are a MELAYU here and you aren't a MELAYU there, you were a MELAYU then and you aren't a MELAYU now.

      What cause the term MELAYU to be so loose? Because in reality there is no necessity to have a definition to it. It is a creation for political expediency, and it can be widened or loosened as and when the need arises.

      Given time, Xi Jin Ping might be regarded as a Melayu by the Malays seanterio, if enough money is owed or something like that. Hell, even Chin Peng might be conferred a title posthumously who knows, if it's politically expedient for those morally bankrupt people to do so.

      The sad thing is, when they are found to be telling lies by claiming to serve the Bangsa Melayu while in actual fact enriching themselves by thieving from the Melayu, suddenly they could switch to the concept of RELIGIOUS SUPERIORITY and totally leave out their Bangsa Melayu war cry.

      Therefore, the concept of BANGSA JOHOR is a much better concept because it can be easily defined, and it was created with much honesty for the wellbeing of the people living in Johor State, all people, within a well defined boundary. Whereas, the concept of BANGSA MELAYU, ... who is a Melayu anyway? By whose definition?

    2. I was mistaken for a chinese so many times.Probably due to my relatively fair skin compared to typical Malay.

    What do you do?

    Force him/her to be one????


    It is a tricky situation and this is why religion has cause a lot of problems all thru the ages.

    Everybody should be free to believe what they want to believe AS LONG AS they can be good human beings and not go around hurting others.

    Even a Satanist can be a good human being - I think :)


    1. Malays will always be Muslims. Satans like you are the enemy of Islam. NonMuslims like you want to champion Malay rights. Your kind that interfere with Malays affairs are source of problems to the Malays like DAP. Pray hard you don’t disappear like the Pastor.

    2. "satanist can be a good human beings"

    3. Anon 13:55.

      The enemies of Islam is not the free-thinker like Gladiator.

      The enemies of Islam is people like you who supported a crooked government, mired with lots of allegation of frauds and had a penchant of soliciting dubious middlemen such as Razak Baginda, Deepak Carpet and Jho Low in government dealings for kick-backs and self enrichment.

      The enemies of Islam, are politicians in UMNO-Najib who tarnished the image of Islam by associating themselves with slime religious people like Haji Hadi, held Ya Na Na Concert and sponsor Village Imams for the Haj... to camouflage its 1MDB shit.

      It's because of these crooked Muslim leaders that the Malays are ashamed of their own race & religion... preaching good deeds but their action was otherwise... hence loosing faith and would not want to have anything to do with it.

      After being left-out in almost every human endeavors... only to excel in religion of hatred, rape, incest, drug abuse, HIV, etc... we feel humiliated and finally lapse into chronic inferiority complex. Felt extremely insulted when the nons like Glady pointed the hard-truth about integrity or maruah of Muslims.

      That's where the bravado of beheading people in the name of God, sets-in. And now, you're suggesting the disappearance of that Pastor had something to do with your religion and the gomen? And you expect the Kapir would love, hence convert to Islam in droves?

    Someone should take this canpaign to Sabah. "Zero Vote For The BN".

    Jangan fikir atau jangan risau if this campaign was started by the Hindraf. Its a great sound byte "Zero Votes For The BN".

    //Satans like you are the enemy of Islam.//

    Sorry, I am not a member of Parti Anak Syaitan, not even an associate member.

    //NonMuslims like you want to champion Malay rights.//

    I am no champion of anybody's rights except my own, I am only asking a simple question.

    //Your kind that interfere with Malays affairs are source of problems to the Malays like DAP.//

    Waahh!! Asking simple questions means interference ah?

    To be honest, I don't think the source of problems faced by the Malays are due to people asking simple questions :)

    //Pray hard you don’t disappear like the Pastor//

    Pastor Koh and me are soft easy targets - the only kind of targets which cowards like picking on :)

    As for praying, one of my preferred deities, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, does not required me to pray too hard - a simple "Ramen" every now and then is more then enough effort.

    Like for example now, Ramen.

    Hm, that reminds me, I do have some yummy homemade Bolognaise sauce in the freezer and some delicious thinly-shaved Parmesan, so maybe I should have that for tonight's dinner.

    I think that should give me some additional protection from the danger of disappearing.
