快看!你知道大马哪个州封赐的拿督勋衔最有分量?哪个州的拿督封衔是Money Game庄家和黑社会大佬的最爱? 原来,只要你给得起,买一送一都不是问题!难怪大马通街都是拿督了。。。

全球华人大联盟     2017-05-10     检举

上星期,柔佛州苏丹殿下公开嘲笑大马通街都是拿督。殿下说,如果他闭着眼睛丢一粒鹅卵石,很有可能就会丢到一个拿督的头,石头反弹也有可能打中另一个拿督;运气好的话,说不定连丹斯里也被打中。

殿下的坦白讽刺,足以令全马千千万万个拿督脸红,稍有廉耻心的拿督还可能钻地洞了。

是的,殿下说得一点都没错。今天大马的拿督封衔已经不再那么令人尊重了,问题追究起来,统治者和那些攀龙附凤死要脸的商人和社会沽名钓誉者都得负很大责任。

因为一些统治者爱财,有钱就能卖封衔,造成许多做梦都想当大人物的国民趋之若鹜,争着奉献金钱买拿督封号。我们最近甚至还听说某州统治者通过中间人开出明码实价;任何人只要拿得出30万令吉,就封一个拿督斯里,附送一个拿督。《买一送一》的超级大OFFER,知情者莫不傻眼。

大马政商界盛传,在国内特定的数个州,各级封衔都有加码,一般封个拿督收10万到20万左右,有时候某州统治者手头比较紧,甚至只要5万就能封个拿督来玩玩。

所以,通街都是拿督,拿督不再是什么了不起的封衔;尤其朋友圈中知道某某人的拿督头衔是用钱买的时候,朋友们不但不会尊重他,还可能当成笑话天天唱。这种情况相信大家都很清楚。

话说回来,拿督头衔有份等级,拿督封衔来自哪个州,也能看出这个《拿督》是否够分量。

政商界公认,大马国内最有分量、最难拿到的拿督封衔,是柔佛州、雪兰莪州及霹雳州。

这三个州的苏丹封赐的拿督,是最有分量,最受人民尊重及敬仰的拿督。因为这三个州的苏丹都不是看钱份上随便封赐任何人拿督勋衔的。就算你很有钱,都未必能够获得这三个州的拿督勋衔。

尤其是柔州现任苏丹与雪兰莪现任苏丹,对封赐拿督的人选都非常严格筛选,如果你真的功在社会,对社会对国家的贡献很杰出,才有受封资格;雪兰莪苏丹更严格规定只有年纪超过45岁者才能受封拿督;否则就算你拿着100万去敲皇宫的门也没用。

而森美兰州、吉打州、登嘉楼、吉兰丹、槟州的拿督封衔,虽然比不上柔佛、雪兰莪及霹雳州的拿督那么吃香,不过也有一定的江湖地位。等而次之的,就是彭亨州及马六甲州的拿督了。这两个州的拿督封衔,往往成为笑柄。

事实上正是由于这两个州的拿督可以用钱搞定,所以许多黑社会大佬、Money Game庄家、直销公司老板都喜欢用钱买个拿督来玩玩,利用王室的拿督头衔欺骗更多马来人送钱给他们用。

都说了,Money Game永远不变的真理就是:你贪图他的是超高回酬的引诱,他贪图你的却是你辛苦半生赚回来的本钱。为了让你更有信心,打着《苏丹封我为拿督》的幌子招摇过市,增加你的信心,多好骗啊。

所以,以后当你听说有人自我介绍为某某拿督的时候,请顺便反问对方是哪个州封的拿督。如果是彭亨的或是马六甲的,你就心中有数了。

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.
