We are a peaceful country, says GPI

We are ranked 19th as the world's most peaceful country, a position much higher than that of the 'most peaceful Singapore' and some developed nations.

According to the Global Peace Index, Malaysia's ranking has improved tremendously from 37th and 38th in 2007 and 2008 respectively. And being the most peaceful in Southeast Asia, we should be telling Ambiga, Anwar, Kit Siang, Mat Sabu and others that whatever they do to tarnish our image, the international community is aware of the government's sincere objectives to bring about peace and sustainable growth for everybody.

This ranking by the GPI 2011 is the first time that Malaysia has been placed that high since 2007, being one of the six non-European nations making the top 20 list (here). The other five were Iceland, New Zealand, Japan, Qatar and Australia.

These indicators were selected by an international panel of academics, business people, philanthropists and members of peace institutions from the period of March 15, 2010 to March 15, 2011.

The research said Malaysia supplanted Singapore as the highest ranked in 2010 for South-East Asian (SEA) nation. Singapore ranked second in SEA and 24th overall, followed by Vietnam (30th overall), Laos (32nd overall), Indonesia (68th overall), Thailand (107th overall), Myanmar (133rd overall) and the Philippines (136th overall).

As for developed countries, United Kingdom was ranked at 26th, South Korea (50th), China (80th) and United States of America (82nd).

"Malaysia's growing peacefulness reflected a rise in political stability and improving relations with neighbouring countries, notably Singapore and China," it said.

The top 10 placement were Iceland as the country most at peace, followed by New Zealand, Japan (third), Denmark (fourth), Czech Republic (fifth), Austria (sixth), Finland (seventh), Canada (eighth), Norway (ninth), Slovenia (tenth).

And Malaysia is currently ranked one of the world’s top 10 friendliest destinations according to a HSBC survey (2011) and ranked the second most peaceful nation in Asia in the Global Peace Index 2011 (read here).

So, shall we tolerate those troublemakers?

the whole world knows that bersih is for anwar ibrahim and friends. its a political organisation and has nothing to do with election or whatsoever.

its a good mileage for najib and administration. in fact, it really boosts bn's low moral after the july 9 illegal rally.

such rallies are not a benchmark for a problematic country. it brings not mark to international recognition on malaysia.

so, to the opposition - u can continue barking like dogs!

negara kita memang aman.

jadi, buat apa susah2 nak rosakkan semua ni?

kita patut bersyukur kerana diberikan kerajaan yang baik dan rakyat yang bertolak ansur.

No we should not tolerate these leaders of rioters.

But we can invite marina and artie fartie to give speeches on peaceful rallies to educate the malai lembus not to be so gullible (wonder if they talk the same language)

and that Malaysia offers employment opportunities to earn more than RM300 for "islamic" jobs

samad the bilal said...

should introduce one WORLD SODOMY INDEX to enable us to verify which countries have most leaders with such a habit!

if there is one, i think malaysia will come second after australia or sweden!

u dont believe aaaa???

ramai setan gondol yang tak mahu lihat negara ni aman. kalau boleh, nak diporakperandakan lagi. orang asing pun tahu menilai keamanan di malaysia.

sepatutnya sesiapa yang cuba menghuruharakan negara ni, dihantar ke negara lain atau dilucutkan saja taraf kerakyatannya.

mereka bebas memilih negara mana yang mereka nak tuju dan mampus di sana

buat apa jadi negara aman kalau masih ramai rakyatnya hidup dalam prejudis?

buat apa jadi negara maju kalau masih ramai rakyat yang hidup miskin!

Aik! Sekejap tak percaya laporan dari Barat sekejap percaya sampai melambung tinggi ke langit dibuatnya.

Jangan pilih-pilih. Tak transparent ertinya. Mana laporan Barat lain-lain berkenaan Human Rights, refugees, Capital flight, buat bisness, democracy, educational excellance, cost of living worldwide, crime index, fraud index dll.

Norway baru kena bom dan Malaysia baru ada perarakan BERSIH. Agaknya next index tu , di mana letaknya kedua-dua negara ni?

kudos to the goverment!

trojan said...

dah sah la bahawa anwar berbohong, mat sabu pembohong besar dan pembangkang menipu untuk politik. mereka menolak hakikat wujudnya keamanan di negara ini dengan memutarbelitkan isu bersih dan kekejaman polis kepada ejen asing. mereka bermuka-muka dengan komunis demi kuasa yang diidamkan.

mereka inilah yang patut diganyang oleh seluruh rakyat malaysia berbilang kaum, dibunuh saja agar kita semua dapat hidup aman!

negara aman berpandukan kayu ukur yang ditetapkan oleh Allah ialah negara yang diberkati dan mendapat pengampunan dari Allah bermaksud negara yang tunduk patuh pada segala perintah dan peraturan yang ditetapkan oleh Allah. bukannya negara yang bermatian pertahankan sekularisma, bukannya negara yang sajikan pelbagai hiburan penuh maksiat 24 jam tak kira bulan Ramadhan atau tidak.
