当在我们父辈的年代当他们在 NSM 和 SGM 里修行时，这些高层干部的问题已经存在了。学会有着三大黄金条规 － 不借钱，不搞婚外情，不与会员合伙做生意 – 在这三大条规里，那些干部们违反了其中之一。
关于是否要推出这个网站，以及这个网站将带来什么后果，我们已经讨论了许多。佛教的三毒貪、嗔、痴其中的痴就是无知（愚蠢）。假如我们为了不打扰会员的修 行而都保持沉默，难道我们不是在造成他们的无知吗？难道我们不是在喂他们毒药吗？如果我们跟随着一个不正当的组织，难道我们不是在误导着他们吗？那么我们 的孩子的修行又该怎么办呢？
我们设立这个网站是一方面是要提供即时消息，另一方面是要为会员们提供一个沟通平台。在这个平台上， 会友们可以匿名地揭发他们亲身经历，亲眼所见的干部们的种种恶行，好让其它会员也可以知道这些干部的真面目。此外，这个网站也可以对干部们起到一个制衡的 作用。这个网站是不断更新的，目的就是为了防止这些恶行会随着时间的过去而被人渐渐淡忘。我们希望把事实提供出来，你们可以不时查阅，对事情做出自我判 断。
Let’s be very clear about purpose of this website. We are not anti-Gakkai (Soka Gakkai Malaysia). We are dissatisfied with the current top leadership in SGM, which is made up of 6 powerful Executive Central Committee (ECC) leaders.
In the past two years, a major incident happened in Johor, read here. The ECC failed to contain this situation and it had gotten worse. There were hatred, distrust, accusations, shouting and finger pointing. Our organisation forgot that we were once a faith organisation and compassion was key to being a Buddhist.
During our fathers’ time, when they were practicing Nichiren Buddhism under NSM and the early times of SGM, these issues about top leadership existed. The leaders broke one of the 3 golden rules of SGM – no borrowing money, no relationship with married people and no setting up businesses among members. During that time, everyone kept quiet because they did not want to upset the organisation and members’ faith. Over time, people forgot about these wrong doings. The leaders became bold. They thought that no one could catch them. And it led to the Johor incident and to what we see today. If we kept quiet today, would history repeat itself? Will these leaders start to think that they are all powerful and be bolder? Do we want to see our daughters being a potential victim of womanizing when they do their activities in this organization in the future?
We had a lot of discussions among ourselves whether we wanted to launch this website and what are the consequences. Buddhism teaches that one of the 3 poisons is ignorance (stupidity). If all of us kept quiet for the sake of members’ practicing, are we not making the members ignorant; are we not feeding them poison? Are we not misleading them by following a platform that is crooked? What about our children’s practice?
This website is set up to put forth facts of what are happening now as well as being a platform for members to contribute their experience with the leaders. It also served to provide a check and balance of these leaders’ actions. With a constantly updated website, time will not forget these wrong doings. We hope that by putting forth facts for you to read at your own leisure, you can make a judgment by yourself. We should learn from history and ensure that it will not be repeated.
Remember, we only want the best for kosen-rufu in Malaysia. We don’t see it happening in this moment of chaos created under the leadership of the current General Director and the ECC. We promise you that the moment the leadership have changed and the moment SGM put in place proper governance process and execute the 4 pillars of transparency, fairness, accountability and responsibility, we will close this website.
