The problem in MCA starts when the sex scandal of Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek made known to the public. His political enemies must have planned the exposure of the sex scandal. Datuk Seri Dr Chua admitted that he has committed the immoral acts and immediately he resigns from all his post including the post as the Minister of Health. By admitting and resigning from all post, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek had shown a high level of integrity as a politician. He had made a very wise decision to resign from all posts. With his immediate resignation the whole stories about his sex scandal stops. Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek had asked forgiveness from his wife and from all Malaysians. He had admitted that the woman in the video was his old time friend. A friend of mine told me that it is a common practice among married Chinese men to have sexual relationship with another woman. As long as they do not marry the woman their wives tend to tolerate the immoral acts of their husband..
To err is human and to ask forgiveness is a noble act. God has created us, as a human being and every human being are not free from making mistakes. God loves to forgive us, when we asked forgiveness from God. Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek was transgressing the orders of God and he should have asked forgiveness from God. Datuk Seri Dr Chua had not committed any mistakes to his family and to fellow Malaysians but he had committed an act, which is against the orders of God. He was having sexual relationship with another woman who is not his wife, even though the act done with mutual consent. Many other politicians are doing the same immoral acts but their actions not exposed to the public. Many politicians are practicing elicit sex but unfortunately for Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, his elicit sexual relationship was made exposed. The acts of exposing the wrongdoing of others are not allowed by any religion but it is permissible in politic. Politic is the religion of those who believes that the ends satisfy the means. In other words, most politicians believe that we can use any means as long as we can achieved our goal and the goal of most politicians is to gain power and glory. In the eyes of God, Datuk Seri Dr Chua political enemies were doing more wrong than he was when they exposed his sexual scandals. The aim of exposing the scandal was to tarnish the good image of Datuk Seri Dr Chua as a leader.
When Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek resigned from all posts, he has shown a high level of integrity as a politician. Nowadays it is hard to find politicians with such integrity even among Muslims politician. Many politicians even Muslims are not willing to admit their immoral acts that they have committed even though all evidences show they have committed the acts. They will do whatever it takes to show that they are clean and pious. Because of the exposure of the sexual scandal of Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, there exist within MCA, two camps. One camps support Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and the other camp support the President Tan Sri Ong Tee Kiat. The existence of these two camps within MCA were the major reasons for the crisis within MCA. The leader of these two camps cannot be together as each camp was trying to remove the other. Although Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek was the Deputy President of MCA but he cannot works with the President Tan Sri Ong Tee Kiat as both belongs to different camps.
MCA had tried to solve the problem by having a special general meeting. However, the outcomes of the meeting cannot solve the problem. Tan Sri Ong Tee Kiat refused to resign as President and Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek remains the Deputy President. The crisis lasted for some months and it has tarnished the image of MCA and the Chinese communities at large. In recent general election of MCA, delegates must have forgiven Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek for his immoral act when they selected him as the President of MCA. MCA delegates seem to favor Datuk Seri Dr Chua instead of Dato’ Seri Ong Tee Kiat and Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting. God seems to favor Dr Chua more than the other two leaders. It is hope that under the leadership of Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, MCA remain united as a party. There should not be any groups within MCA. In case MCA continue to have groups, MCA will not be able to represent the Chinese communities in Malaysia in the next general election. Our Prime Minister has also highlighted this point very clearly.
