In our About Us page, we started by saying we are not anti-Gakkai. What we are against are the current top management of SGM, specifically the 6-man ECC who is not able to manage the crisis that started in Johor which now resulted in a split of the organisation.
在我们的 “关于我们” 的页面，我们强调了我们不是反学会。 我们反对的是目前SGM的管理层，特别是中央委员会6位会员ECC无法应对在柔佛开始的危机，现在导致组织分裂。
“对不起，但我真的不知道如何离开SGM和成立NBA，这些人可以希望对SGM的高层管理产生任何变化。 你希望如何有效地从外部而不是内部做出改变。 你不认为这是一个错误的策略吗？ 通过形成NBA，他们烧毁了桥梁的意义，因为他们是不同的个体，无论在SGM中发生什么不应该再是他们的担忧的？ 有人能在这里给我意见吗？ 我真的不明白NBA的人在做什么或他们的真正目标是什么，而不他们对SGM高层管理人员的所谓不满意。
他说到重点了！ 我们必须继续从内部得到正义。 一旦我们离开组织，我们将失去我们的战斗权利。
我们同意你@bcphuah 对此的评论。 这个文章是关于辞去干部职位和成为会友（并继续作战和用自己是会友的的声音发表），而不是离开组织。 当我们是干部时我们不能说出的苦衷，因为我们有义务履行我们的职责（*）。 但作为成员，干部现在现在对我们有负责。
（*）更新19/11 – 我们需要澄清这个声明。 该声明我们在进行SGM活动和讨论会议时面临的两难问题。 例如，我们宣布御供养和鼓励成员做出金钱上的捐款吗？ 我们还邀请会友参观发现美艺术展，当我们知道SGM花费了2,790万会员资金在这些收藏品上？
While we are critical of their actions, we want to make it clear that we do not support the idea of leaving SGM nor SGI. Nichiren Daishonin, SGM and Ikeda Sensei are still our beliefs, guiding principals, and mentor.
We also heard that NBA is exploring their own doctrines and reading up materials from other schools. We will write about it when we learn more but we thought a quick post to clarify where we stand is needed.
One comment by our reader @bcphuah in Resignation post, he said:
“Sorry, but I seriously fail to see how by leaving SGM and forming NBA, these people can hope to effect any change in the top management of the SGM. How do you expect to be effective in fighting for the change from the outside rather than inside. Don’t you think this is a wrong strategy? By forming NBA, they have burnt their bridges in the sense that now that they are different entities, whatever happens in SGM should no longer be any of their concerns or am I wrong? Can someone enlighten me here please? See, I seriously do not understand what it is the NBA people are doing or what is their real objectives other than their so-called unhappiness with the top management of the SGM.”
He hit the bull’s eye! We must continue to fight from within. Once we leave the organisation, we will lose our rights to fight.
What then of the Resignation post? This was our reply to @bcphuah
We agree with you @bcphuah on this. This post is about resigning as leaders and become a member (and continue to fight and voice out as members), not about leaving the organisation. We can’t voice out when we are leaders, being obligated to carry out our duties (*). But as members, the leaders are now answerable to us.
We hope this clarifies our stand and position.
(*) Update 19/11 – We need to clarify this statement. The context of the statement is on the dilemma faced by us when conducting SGM activities and in discussion meetings. For instance, do we announce gokuyo and encourage members to do monetary contributions? Do we ask members to visit the Beauty art exhibition, knowing that SGM spent $27.9M of members’ money on these collections?
