在我们的柔佛州的同志游说学会最高层干部对不当地处理资金的某人采取行动和落实到位的治理流程和结构的同时,同样的最高层干部发出备忘录来批评我们柔佛州的同志意图制造恐惧,怀疑和动荡。最高层干部不但不采取行动来建立一个治理流程,反而只是发出备忘录来推卸责任。他们怪罪三障四魔和柔佛同志没有师弟不二的精神。

在其中一个备忘录里,柔佛州的同志被指控制造不和谐和不遵守理事长的指导,因此他们被归类没有遵守学会的原则,他们谤法。

2015年11月-由名6高层干部组成的中央委员会成立,中央委员会负责管理二十人的总理事会。同月,学会也把多名干部降职。降职的罪名是因他们对柔佛事件发问问题以及寻求答案。

2016年5月-学会一举开除在柔佛州的十名干部。和2015月11月的降职事件不同的是,这一次这些干部的干部职位全被革除然后成为了普通会员。吉隆坡的副理事长因发问太多的问题而被开除了。随着他的开除,柔佛州的干部们纷纷辞职一共有为数400名的干部辞职作为抗议。学会采取了更加严厉及无情的行动。他们拿走了会场的准证,使得这些场地再也无法举行会议。

被开除之后,一些正义组的干部和会员被要求退还御本尊。当草根阶级的干部们收到这个消息之后,所有人,包括不是正义组的支持者,都感到强烈不满。知道关于强制性的退还御本尊这件事的会员们觉得柔佛州的高层干部和缺乏同情心和非常自我。

意识到夺回御本尊这一决定在支持者之间不得人心后,学会干部决定收回成命,又允许正义组(现在日连佛法复兴会)的成员继续保存他们的御本尊。

在这起事件上,我们可以看到,创价学会的干部们会毫不犹豫地压抑正义的声音,甚至要求御本尊的退还。他们只有在情势不妙的时候才会打退堂鼓。

2016年7月-被逼的无路可退又迫切地需要一个地方来修行的柔佛州的会员们,成立了自己的组织,组名为日连佛法复兴会。

目的是他们能够继续学习和修行,并还能在柔佛州继续弘法。正义组( RJ2 )的成员不能继续持有在各自的家聚会,因为他们会场馆证已被吊销。在家聚会可以被视为非法集会,因为他们没有一个法律实体。这就是为什么在柔佛的正义组需要组成一个正式的组织,以便他们能够举行会议的原因。

2016年8月 学会分发了备忘录,目的是要求干部召开讨论会分享日连佛法复兴会的设立,以及引起会友对这个组织的警惕。许多干部都拒绝在讨论会中分享。日连佛法复兴会与日显宗不同,它没有为了自己的功德扭曲佛祖的话语和教义,它的设立仅仅是因为他们问了一些关于学会财务记录和组织结构的管理问题,被逼得走投无路。日连佛法复兴会并没有扭曲或篡改佛祖的教义,但他们却和日显宗一样受到了迫害。

学会还发出了另一种备忘录,要求在全国各州各自临时召开全体干部大会。在备忘录中,学会透露说,这个(柔佛州)事件终于结束了。来自拯救柔佛州2(RJ2)长达两年的请愿书的最终目的就是要创建他们自己的组织。许多干部都质疑了这份备忘录的意图,提出学会在使用覆盖策略,试图把整个事件隐藏起来,再次忽视人们提出的解决手头问题的请求。

让我们再次仔细想想。如果正义组(RJ2)的真实意图是要创建他们自己的组织,那么这些RJ2的同志就没有必要等2年。如果我们再次分析事情的经过,我们就能发现是在柔佛州的领导被停职,场地许可被取消过后不久,RJ2的同志就无路可走了,只能创建日连佛法复兴会这组织,才会这么做的。

有些学会的顶层干部也声称在马来西亚注册一个组织是很困难的,并且要办理很多手续。这就是RJ2花了2年时间创建组织的原因,因此就证实了他们的最终目的就是成功创建日连佛法复兴会。这种说法正确吗?在写这个帖子的同时,马来西亚社团注册官(ROS)的数据显示超过3500个申请(2016)都被批准了并成为了合法的组织。如果获取ROS的批准有那么困难,那ROS怎么可能批准了超过3500个申请?ROS的网站上也有关于注册新组织需要办理的手续的信息,都是非常简单直接的。由此可见,学会关于手续的话是假的。我们建议所有的读者都去浏览一下 http://www.ros.gov.my/index.php/en/ 获取准确的信息。


While our Johor comrades were lobbying for top SGM leaders to take action against certain individual for mishandling of funds and to implement a governance process and structure in place, the same SGM top leaders sent memos criticizing our Johor comrades with the intention to create fear, doubt and uncertainty. Instead of taking actions to establish a governance process, the memos blamed the issue as being the appearance of 3 obstacles and 4 devils and our Johor comrades as not having mentor and disciple spirit. In one memo, Johor comrades were accused of creating disharmony and not following GD’s guidance and as a result, they are not following SGM and are slandering the Law.

Nov 2015 – establishment of the Executive Central Committee (ECC) made up of 6 top leaders presiding over the 20-man General Council. In the same month, SGM also demoted many leaders from their chief positions. These leaders were guilty of asking questions, for seeking answers.

May 2016 – in one major swoop, SGM issued termination letters to 10 Region and Honbu leaders in Johor. Unlike the Nov 2015 demotion, this time, the leaders were stripped off their leadership titles and became members. One Vice General Director in KL was terminated for asking too many uncomfortable questions. Johor leaders responded by tendering their resignation in mass where more than 400 leaders resigned in protest. SGM took even harsher and in-compassionate actions – meeting venue appointments (permits) in Johor were removed, making these houses unable to conduct group meetings anymore.

After the termination, some Justice group (RJ2) leaders and members in Johor were asked to return their Gohonzon. When this news hit the grassroots leaders , the sentiment became worse even among non-supporters of the Justice group (RJ2). Many members who came to know about the possible return of Gohonzon were dissatisfied and they viewed SGM top leadership in Johor and ECC in KL as lack of compassion and full of ego. After realizing that the decision to take back the Gohonzon was unpopular even among their supporters, SGM leaders decided to make a U-turn, which was to allow members of Justice group (now member of NBA) to continue keeping their Gohonzon. We could see from this instance that SGM leaders will not hesitate to silence the voices of justice by any means, including demanding the return of Gohonzon and they will only back off when things are not favourable to them.

July 2016 – having been pushed to a corner and needing an entity to practice, Johor group formed their own organisation called Nichiren Buddhist Association (NBA). The purpose is so that they can continue to learn and practice Buddhism and to also continue propagating Buddhism in Johor. The Justice group (RJ2) members could not continue to hold meetings in their respective houses because their Society Venue Appointment (permit) has been revoked and their meetings can be viewed as illegal gathering since they do not have a legal entity. This explain the reason why the Justice group in Johor need to form a formal organisation so that they were able to hold meetings.

Aug 2016 – SGM sent out memo requesting leaders  conducting discussion meetings to share about the establishment of NBA and to warn members about this organisation. Many leaders refused to share in discussion meetings. Unlike Nikken sect which twisted the Daishonin words and doctrines for their own benefits, the NBA was established because they were pushed to the corner for asking questions about the governance of SGM financial records and the organization structure. NBA did not twist and change the teachings of the Buddha and yet, they were persecuted like Nikken sect.

SGM also sent out another memo and calling for an adhoc All Leaders Meet in respective states throughout the country. In the memo, SGM revealed that “this (Johor) incident has finally ended. The ultimate purpose of the two years’ petitions from Rescue Johor 2 (RJ2), is to form their own organisation”. Many leaders questioned the intention of this memo, citing that SGM is using cover-up tactics and trying to sweep the whole incident under the carpet, again, ignoring pleas to addressed the issues at hand.

Let us again ponder about it. If the real intention of the Justice group (RJ2) is to form their own organisation, then these RJ2 comrades do not need to wait for 2 years. If we were to analyse the timeline again, we could see that it was just right after the termination of the Johor leaders and venue permit being revoked where RJ2 comrades have no where to turn to and have no choice but to form NBA organisation.

Some SGM top leaders also claimed that to register an organisation in Malaysia is difficult and it will take many procedures. This is the reason it took RJ2 two years to register their organisation and hence, their successful formation of NBA proved to be their ‘ultimate purpose’. Is this true? At the time of writing this post, the Registrar of Society (Malaysia) statistics showed that more than 3500 applications (2016) were approved and became legal entities. If it is difficult to obtain approval from ROS, then how is it possible for ROS to approve more than 3500 applications? The ROS website also has information on procedures needed to register a new organisation which is simple and straightforward. Therefore, what SGM claimed about the procedures was false.

Updated!

Oct 2016 – some of the leaders who used to be in gokuyo working committee were not called for meeting to prepare for Oct gokuyo. They were totally sidelined and ignored. No calls to tell them that their services are not needed this round. What a disrespectful act. As expected, gokuyo attendance and contribution collected saw a drastic drop.

Nov 2016 – a couple of key chiefs specifically YMD chief was demoted. A new inexperienced man was appointed to take on that role. Some say he’s a yes-man. Read more in QuietRevo.

Dec 2016 – SGI Asia Culture and Education Center was opened. Only the chosen ones get to go. If you are not in their good shoes, you don’t get to attend the opening ceremony. GD even have to give a 5-10 minute message to try and pacify those who were disappointed, trying to give encouraging words such as ‘you can always go to the Center next time’.

January 2017 – New Year gongyo gokuyo continues despite call for putting that aside until we have more governance in place. Granted, this time, SGM included a paper in the envelop such that if you would like a receipt, they will mail you one.

8 Jan 2017 – Black Day. More leaders were demoted and sacked. This time, the sacking was through a last minute call or a WhatsApp the day before the All Leaders Meet. Whatever happened to proper process and procedures? These leaders came to the ALM the following days and were denied access to IPA. They started crying for justice and SGM called the police on them! On the other hand, more yes-men were appointed to take on the empty seats. Truly a sad and shameful day to be a SGM member.

March 2017 – All Leaders Meet. General Director started condemning the authors of Daylight and Quiet Revolution. He also stated that if people are not happy with SGM, then they should leave the organization. A speaker from SGI, Dr Ouchi parroted what GD said, which sounds suspiciously staged to us.
