干部在对话中常常会问这些问题。这些问题常常听起来非常正确往往也会觉得这些问题有道理。但如果你细想,这些问题只会让你感到更加困惑。这篇文章的目的就是让你在寻找答案时保持头脑清醒。


:如果正义组够证明柔佛州有乱用金的情况,也能明吉隆坡的官渎职什么会不上报马来西亚反贪会(MACC)?

答:多数时候,创价学会干部都会挑战正义组带着证据去找MACC。但正义组没有这么做的原因就是因为他们对学会的关爱。如果去找MACC的话,就会导致学会资金冻结,会阻碍马来西亚学会未来的活动。所以正义组会说自己的正义的,因为他们主张让学会从内部解决自己的的问题。另外,创价学会干部在提出让正义组去找MACC的时候,似乎是没有把学会放在眼里。


: 你要求中央委员会解散。中央委员会成立的目的是要带领学会走上透明政的道路上。什么要求它解散?

答:首先,这个6人组成的中央委员会是在危机之中创立的,这给人的印象就好像是在巩固权力。中央委员会会员不是被会友投选出来的。这就使得中央委员会在掌控这个富裕的机构上有很大的权力。

第二,看看你的身边吧。看看有多少同志变成了敌人。看看学会中的那些内部斗争。看看人与人之间的不信任,谣言和指责。中央委员会和理事长都没能尽到职责,处理好这些状况。中央委员会的设立把一切变得更糟了。如果只看现在的状况的话,我们就会感觉中央委员会做了很多错事。学会想要做出的4大改变之一就是责任。那么我们就该对中央委员会那些导致学会动乱的所作所为负责。


:理事和很多干部都不是企。我不能指望他种危机当中反那么迅速。时间吧。

答:我们很赞同,我们很多柔佛州的同志也赞同。但2年过去了,仍然还没有迅速的行动。还要等多久?

另外,这一次的事件对我们来说是一个很好的教训,让我们明白信仰领袖(提供信仰指导)和行政领袖(运作组织)应该被明确地划分为两种职务。有没有打算区分这两者的职务?如果没有的话,这种事件将来还会不会重演?


:有供养,学会才能扩建。要想扩建,我就需要会所。要会所,就需要。我不能停止供养,不然我怎么扩建

答:学会有充足的资金来修建培训SGI东南亚研修中心。如果需要知道更多详情请参考《年度报告》。既然学会已经能够建的起培训中心,我们为什么还要实行4个特别御供养?我们应该在没有资金的时候才来依靠供养。如果我们依靠这么多年来会友的供养就已经有足够的资金,那我们难道不应该用这笔钱吗?为什么需要向他们索求更多?现在这笔钱学会在用来干什么?买古董吗?在新人间革命第三十四, 户田先生曾想要为学会修建一个总部。

“由于他靠自己修建不起总部,所以要想实现这个想法就必须要求会友捐钱。但是在当时,大多数的会友都穷得难以养活自己。为了不加重他们的负担,先生决定推迟总部的建设。”

为什么学会就没有先生的这种精神?我们为什么还要发起一些运动来鼓励会友供养?我们这么多年来早就收集了足够的钱。


:供养的人都已看到了功德。一点你无法否。你不想继续看到功德?

答: 我同意,供养的人确实看到了功德。但也有一些供养的人没看到功德。这要取决于信、行、学,以及人间革命,而不单单是因为供养。

第二,你是说那些没有供养而只通过唱题来贡献的人没有得到功德吗?相信你不是那个意思。那么,如果会友通过唱题就能获得同等的功德,那我们何必那么提倡供养?

我们有要求别人“sai lang”的坏习惯。我还记得在2014年培训中心特别御供养期间,学会在讨论会上播放的视频。这个视频的内容是一个年轻的女人,苦苦存钱给自己买房子,但因为培训中心,她把她的存款全都供养给学会了,然后继续租房子,过着清贫的生活。现在既然我们知道学会有钱(见上面的问题),而且培训中心也只是可用资金的一部分,那么我们为什么要逼着给会友增加负担?


:我知道你于学会开除很多高干部件事不高。他被开除的因向其他干部谈论柔佛州事件,而学会认为这造成了不团结绯闻道你不些原因合理

答:也许学会应该告知会友开除高层领导的原因。在同一件事情上,我们应该澄清学会为什么没有解除X先生的职务。他是柔佛州的前主席席。他是柔佛州事件发生的原因,一切都由他引起。事实上,他被发现私吞资金而被判有罪,被解除了主席的职务。尽管如此,他还保留了总理事会的职位和副壮年部的职位。学会有权力决定开除谁,保留谁吗?我们需不需要重新思考这个系统?

此外,历史也表明曾有高层干部非礼女性。学会的干部心里都清楚这些坏干部的所作所为。但他们没有被开除(是的,如果有必要的话我们可以在这里公布他们的名字)。再次强调,这个系统似乎可以随意选择开除谁,保留谁。

最后,在2016年5月,在最近的一次干部会议中,有一些学会的顶层干部公开宣布如果你不服从理事长,不服从学会的话,就可以离开这个组织。我们应该服从这法而不是服从人,对吗?我们的同情心在哪里?他的这些言论让许多观众很心痛,有些甚至还哭了。这个干部怎么没有被开除?

那些被开除的高层干部到底做了什么,就连违背了学会3大规则的人都还在组织内,他们却被开除?

These are questions that SGM leaders frequently ask during dialogues. They are good questions and often you tend to agree with them. But when you think further, these questions only serve to confuse you. The purpose of this page is to keep you informed in your search for the truth.


Q. If the Justice Group have proof of mishandling of funds in Johor and also proof of similar misconduct in KL, why not report to MACC?

A. Most of the time, SGM leaders will challenge the Justice Group to go to MACC with proof. And the reason the Justice Group have not is because they loved Gakkai too much. Going to MACC will cause the assets of SGM to be frozen and will deter the future of kosen-rufu activities (and future of Nichiren Buddhism) in Malaysia. That’s the reason they declared themselves as Justice, to call for SGM to right the wrong doings internally. On the other hand, it seems that the SGM leaders who challenged the Justice Group to do this does not put SGM nor kosen-fufu in their mind when they said this.

 


Q. You demanded for the dissolution of the ECC. ECC was set up to take SGM towards the path of governance and transparency. Why ask for dissolution?

A. Firstly, the fact that 6-man ECC was set up in the midst of a crisis gave the impression of a consolidation of power. The ECC was not elected by members. This gave them a lot of power over an organization that was extremely cash rich.

Secondly, look around you. Look at how comrades became enemies. Look at all the infighting in SGM. Look at the mistrust among each other and the gossips and the finger pointing. The ECC and GD have failed in their responsibilities to manage the situation. The establishment of ECC made things worse. Just looking at the current situation, we feel that the ECC has done a lot of “wrong”. One of the 4 pillars of change that SGM wanted to put in place is Responsibility. Then, take responsibility for ECC actions (or inaction), which caused SGM to be such a chaotic place.


Q. GD and many top leaders are not corporate people. We don’t expect them to be able to react so swiftly in a crisis like this. Give them time.

A. We agree to this and many of our Johor comrades agrees too. But 2 years have passed and still no swift action. How long more to wait?

Also, this crisis is a good lesson to us, that a faith leader (giving Buddhist guidance) and an administrative leader (running the organization) should be two separate people. Are there plans to separate these duties? If not, will these incidents repeat itself in future?


Q. SGM needs contribution to grow. In order to grow, we need Kaikans. Kaikans need money. We cannot stop gokuyo, otherwise how can we expand kosen-rufu?

A. SGM have more than enough fund to build SGI SEA Training Centre in Johor. Please refer to Annual Report if you need to know the detail. Why do we still conduct 4 special gokuyo sessions when SGM already can afford to build this center? We should only turn to gokuyo when we don’t have the fund to build a center. If we already have money due to contributions from members over the years, shouldn’t we use the money on hand? Why ask for more? What is SGM doing with the existing money? Buy antiques? In Pure Stream (New Human Revolution 34), Toda Sensei wanted to build a Headquarter for Soka Gakkai.

“Since he could not afford to build a headquarters on his own, doing so would require asking members for donations. At that time, however, most Soka Gakkai members were so poor that they could barely make ends meet. Not wanting to increase their burden, Mr Toda decided to hold off on the construction of a headquarters until a later date.”

Why doesn’t SGM have this spirit portrayed by Toda Sensei? Why do we still run special campaigns to encourage members to contribute? We already collected more than we need from all these years.


Q. People who contributed have seen benefits. You cannot deny that. Do you want to stop people from seeing benefits?

A. Agreed, people who contributed sincerely have seen benefits. However, there are also those who contributed but did not see benefits. It all comes down to faith, practise and study, as well as human revolution, not just because of contribution.

Secondly, are you also implying that people who did not contribute money but they contribute to the Law (through daimoku) are not getting benefits? I am sure you are not implying that. So, if members can get equal benefits through contributing to the Law, then why do we keep on pushing for monetary contribution?

We have a bad habit of asking people to “sai lang” (go all-in). I still remember the video that SGM played in district discussion meetings during SEA TC special gokuyo in 2014. The video was about a young woman who saved so hard to buy a house for herself but because of SEA TC, she contributed her savings to SGM and continue to rent a room and “eat sweet potatoes for lunch.” Now that we know SGM has a lot of money (see Question above) and that SEA TC is just a fraction the available funds, why do we push so hard and add additional burdens to our members?


Q. I know you are not happy that SGM terminated many senior leaders. They were terminated because they started talking to leaders about Johor incident, which SGM saw as creating disunity and gossips. Don’t you think these are valid reasons for termination?

A. Perhaps SGM should start to inform grassroots leaders on the reasons for terminating these senior leaders. And on the same subject, we should clarify on why SGM did not terminate Mr. X. He was the ex-State Chairman of Johor. He was the cause of the Johor incident, it all started with him. In fact, he was found guilty for misappropriation of fund and was terminated as State Chairman of Johor. And yet, he remained in SGM top leadership as a member of the General Council and a Vice MD Chief. Is SGM system selective on who to terminate and who to keep? Don’t we need to review the system then?

Also, history have also shown that there were senior leaders who had molested YWDs. SGM leaders are aware of these leaders who had done wrong. But they were not terminated (and yes, we can put their names here if need to. Again, the system seems selective of who to terminate and who to keep.

Lastly, in May 2016, in a recent leader meeting, certain top leaders in SGM made statement publicly that if you don’t follow GD and you are not following Nichiren Buddhism and you can leave the organisation. We follow the Law, not the person, don’t we? Where is the spirit of compassion? His statement caused many heartache among the audiences and some were in tears. How come this leader was not terminated?

What were the offence that these senior leaders do that caused them to be sacked but those who broke the 3 SGM golden rules are kept at the top organisation?
