快看!你知道大馬哪個州封賜的拿督勛銜最有份量?哪個州的拿督封銜是Money Game莊家和黑社會大佬的最愛? 原來,只要你給得起,買一送一都不是問題!難怪大馬通街都是拿督了。。。

上星期,柔佛州蘇丹殿下公開嘲笑大馬通街都是拿督。殿下說,如果他閉著眼睛丟一粒鵝卵石,很有可能就會丟到一個拿督的頭,石頭反彈也有可能打中另一個拿督;運氣好的話,說不定連丹斯里也被打中。

殿下的坦白諷刺,足以令全馬千千萬萬個拿督臉紅,稍有廉恥心的拿督還可能鉆地洞了。

是的,殿下說得一點都沒錯。今天大馬的拿督封銜已經不再那麼令人尊重了,問題追究起來,統治者和那些攀龍附鳳死要臉的商人和社會沽名釣譽者都得負很大責任。

因為一些統治者愛財,有錢就能賣封銜,造成許多做夢都想當大人物的國民趨之若鶩,爭著奉獻金錢買拿督封號。我們最近甚至還聽說某州統治者通過中間人開出明碼實價;任何人只要拿得出30萬令吉,就封一個拿督斯里,附送一個拿督。《買一送一》的超級大OFFER,知情者莫不傻眼。

大馬政商界盛傳,在國內特定的數個州,各級封銜都有加碼,一般封個拿督收10萬到20萬左右,有時候某州統治者手頭比較緊,甚至只要5萬就能封個拿督來玩玩。

所以,通街都是拿督,拿督不再是什麼了不起的封銜;尤其朋友圈中知道某某人的拿督頭銜是用錢買的時候,朋友們不但不會尊重他,還可能當成笑話天天唱。這種情況相信大家都很清楚。

話說回來,拿督頭銜有份等級,拿督封銜來自哪個州,也能看出這個《拿督》是否夠份量。

政商界公認,大馬國內最有份量、最難拿到的拿督封銜,是柔佛州、雪蘭莪州及霹靂州。

這三個州的蘇丹封賜的拿督,是最有份量,最受人民尊重及敬仰的拿督。因為這三個州的蘇丹都不是看錢份上隨便封賜任何人拿督勛銜的。就算你很有錢,都未必能夠獲得這三個州的拿督勛銜。

尤其是柔州現任蘇丹與雪蘭莪現任蘇丹,對封賜拿督的人選都非常嚴格篩選,如果你真的功在社會,對社會對國家的貢獻很傑出,才有受封資格;雪蘭莪蘇丹更嚴格規定只有年紀超過45歲者才能受封拿督;否則就算你拿著100萬去敲皇宮的門也沒用。

而森美蘭州、吉打州、登嘉樓、吉蘭丹、檳州的拿督封銜,雖然比不上柔佛、雪蘭莪及霹靂州的拿督那麼吃香,不過也有一定的江湖地位。等而次之的,就是彭亨州及馬六甲州的拿督了。這兩個州的拿督封銜,往往成為笑柄。

事實上正是由於這兩個州的拿督可以用錢搞定,所以許多黑社會大佬、Money Game莊家、直銷公司老闆都喜歡用錢買個拿督來玩玩,利用王室的拿督頭銜欺騙更多馬來人送錢給他們用。

都說了,Money Game永遠不變的真理就是:你貪圖他的是超高回酬的引誘,他貪圖你的卻是你辛苦半生賺回來的本錢。為了讓你更有信心,打著《蘇丹封我為拿督》的幌子招搖過市,增加你的信心,多好騙啊。

所以,以後當你聽說有人自我介紹為某某拿督的時候,請順便反問對方是哪個州封的拿督。如果是彭亨的或是馬六甲的,你就心中有數了。

Safeguarding the sanctity of honorific titles

With more and more 'Datuks' in our midst, the title's value has been remarkably diluted, and its true significance has gradually dissipated.

Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar of Johor said someone had offered him RM2 million for the 「Tan Sri」 title. Following his revelation, the MACC has sought an audience with the Ruler in the hope of getting the suspect’s particulars and to initiate a probe into the matter.

Once again, the issue of bought and bogus titles has drawn widespread attention in Malaysian society.

We cannot deny that there are indeed more and more title holders in our country, in particular the Datuks.

The Johor Sultan said in an interview recently: 「In Malaysia, if I were to close my eyes and throw a pebble, it may hit the head of a Datuk and that same pebble may bounce off the head of another Datuk, and if luck has it, the pebble may also hit a Tan Sri.」

The proliferation of undeserved honorific titles must be seriously looked into. This phenomenon of increasing numbers of young individuals awarded the 「Datuk」 title and the abundance of bogus title-holders has raised the concern among the public.

Parliament recently passed the Offenses relating to Awards Act 2016 as well as the Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper Use) (Amendment) Act 2016 with the purpose of checking bogus awards through tougher penalties.

The awarding of honorific titles is meant to show recognition for the recipient’s contribution towards society and the nation. In order to safeguard the sanctity of these titles, it is essential to institute very strict vetting procedures.

In conjunction with his 59th birthday recently, Sultan Ibrahim conferred state awards to 102 individuals, of whom only three received awards which allowed them to carry the 「Datuk」 and 「Datuk Seri」 titles. This showed that the Ruler was very strict in handing out such awards.

The same goes for Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah of Selangor. Only individuals above the age of 45 can be conferred the 「Datuk」 title. Such strict criteria are meant to safeguard the sanctity of these titles.

「Datuk」 is supposed to be a highly treasured title, but with more and more 「Datuks」 walking in our midst, the title’s value has been remarkably diluted, and its true significance gradually dissipating.

In the face of the proliferation of bogus and undeserved title-holders, perhaps we should rethink the true meaning behind the awarding of such titles.

These titles must be awarded to deserving individuals who have contributed positively toward society and the nation instead of being reduced to just walking 「signs」 and 「tools」 of our society.
