Actually I wanted to post this long time ago but just wasn’t not in the mood to do so. Only those that know mandarin will know what it means else you won’t be able to make any head or tail except our national anthem with different tempo. Here’s the video of Negaraku(rap version).
This video is very controversial. I’m not very impress with what this guy is doing. He even dare to end it with “don’t sue me”. It’s wrong to do that to your national anthem. There is no country in this world that will tolerate this kind of thing! You deserve to be sued!
I know many people salute what he’s doing, agree with what he’s doing but so sorry… Not me. I know our country is not perfect and I do agree with all the things he sang in there but there should be a better way to do it and not this way. It doesn’t matter how much you dislike your country, how corrupted or whatever it is, you are welcome to compose whatever song to show your displease and ugly side of your country but this is not the way for you for making fun of the national anthem. National anthem is something very important to a country else why does everyone stand still or you put your right hand to your chest when the national anthem is playing? This is the simplest act of respect that you should know.
There’s a limit to everything. Imagine if you make fun with other country’s national anthem, they are not going to be happy with you also and will definitely sue you. When you are using our national anthem to make fun of your country, what do you think those foreigners will be thinking? They will be thinking that Malaysians are disrespectful. It might be intended to show your displease of the country, indirectly you as a Malaysian will also be given bad name for it. Every country has their fair share of corruptions, political woes and so on, that’s life.
It’s very simple theory. Something that you have to respect you must respect. It’s like you must respect your elders. You dare to direspect them? You show your disrespect to the elders in front of other people, what they will think? They will think that you “bo ka si“(parents never teach). Then who you put to shame? Your parents of course! Indirectly, no one will respect you as well.
Enough said! You deserve to be sued as you are putting the country’s integrity and image at stake! You are putting me to shame too for being labeled as disrespectful citizens in the eye of the world.
