Tunku Abdul Rahman Part 2 – Anglophille?

Tunku anglophille? Anglophile adalah sesaorang yang taksub kepada carahidup dan budaya inggeris.Tidak ada yang lebih berbudaya dari carahidup yang ditirunya. Tunku bukan anglophhille,. Dia selesa dengan kemelayuannya, bergaya dengan kebangsawanannya. Penngaruh awal siam dalam keturunan dan pendidikanya, dan seterusnya bersaing dengan atasan british di Cambridge, meyediakan beliau menjadi Melayu global yang unggul.

Saya percaya keterbukaan minda sedemikian yang diharap tunku dipahat diminda warga Malaya Merdeka.

Saya kagumi kejujuran Tunku. Jasanya kepada Islam di Malaysia dan di Dunia, sukar ditandingi. Namun tunku tidak berpura pura. Orang kampng tahu tunku suka wiski dan gin. Merka tontoni gambar tunku menjulang Melbourne cup yang dimenanginya. Ramai yang mencemuhnya, tapi warga Malaya belum diculiki minda mereka olih cauvinis agama. Berparti, berzapin, ber koktil, berdansa bukan ad-dinn kata mereka. Tapi Tunku tidak menyembunyikan kegemaran nya.

Living Life to the Fullest. Tunku pada saya menghayati sepenuhnya ad-dinn yang dipercayainya. Adil, saksama, tidak munafik, pencinta kebenaran, kesejagatan maknusia tanpa mengira bangsa, warna kulit dan agama.

    I believe that the Tunku is respected and he achieved what he did due to his openness. No hypocracy, everything is above board and transparent. Maybe it was simpler times but a man’s character shows through his deeds. So what if he liked gin & whisky, so what if he liked and enjoyed horse racing so much? So what he was an anglophile? But did he bow to the English all the time? Was he subdued by the English? No! He bloody fought the English was why we got our Independence. He liked the English maybe.

    But was he any worse than the arabphiles today? By arabphiles I mean those jubah and turban wearing and minyak attar using people. Are the English really worse than the Arabs? Each nation and each race has its own uniqueness as well as the good and bad traits that we can see.

    Thus, being an anglophile is no worse than being an arabphile.

    The Tunku has merely stated his preference. We are not a communist country where one can’t state his preference publicly.
