Is there room for the Gurkha Contingent in Singapore? I say NO!

In the midst of the Mas Selamat Kastari escape saga, much focus was on the systemic failure of the Internal Security Department and the Whitely Road Detention Centre operations. Now that the COI [however watered down and made diplomatic and politically correct] points blames towards several failures, it is about time something is done about those failures.

Wong Kan Seng will not escape so easily of course. But for the time being we can afford to give him a breather. After all, he is Singaporean.

My sights are currently trained on the bloody Gurkha Contingent – a bloody disgrace to taint the name of their forefathers as well as their illustrious tradition of service in the British Army and their now despised link to the Singapore Police Force. If you will care to recall, the bloody Gurkha did not even have the common sense to check the toilet. Talk about guts, talk about bravery talk about pride. Talk about a missing brain. :)

The Straits Times article of today reveals that the new Maoist Government of Nepal intends to end the tradition of mercenary service by the Gurkha tribe. I say that this is a good sign. Because even by the Gurhka’s own words were a matter of choice between dignity and practicality of survival. It seems that they do not enjoy being mercenaries.

A Gurkha in the British Army earns S$35,000 per year or was it in US Dollars?

How much is our Singapore Police Force Gurkha supposed to earn? What are their terms of employment How many are employed? what other perks have there been in place for them. What is the cost in public funds of maintaining the idiotic contingent in Singapore? Who is their commanding officer [the traditional practice is seconded British Army Officer] What is the Bloody chain of command? From Whom does the Contingent takes its orders from? What is the Oath of Allegience administered to and taken by the Gurkhas? What rules and standing orders are the Gurkhas subject to?

Why do i ask these questions? :) Because they are in my mind.

When one sees the dismal performance of a supposed elite unit. One wonders whether we are feeding a bunch of rice-wasters or should i say “jiak liao bee”. The Gurkha police officer is either given 6 months leave per year to visit his family or his family is also here staying at Mount Vernon Camp. I recall from newspaper reports in the past when i was young that either would be the arrangement. Such terms definitely raise the cost of maintaining the Contingent in Expensive Singapore.

We recall also that other police units have been deployed and which have performed their duties accordingly. Police Task force, STAR team etc. What is then the role of this contingent in Singapore that other Police units cannot fulfil?

Guarding Political Prisoners. Singaporeans detained without trial. Singapore Political Prisoners. Singaporeans who are a threat to the administration. :)

Tells us alot does it not? That public funds should be used for such ends and incidentally enrich foreigners?

One will also notice during the Mas Selamat Kastari Great Escape and Futile Search, that Wong Kan Seng chose to address the Gurkha Contingent with kind words, on what occasion i am unsure of, but obviously the words were meant to raise their morale, to soothe their wounded pride.

One will also notice that our Gurkha Contingent supposedly part of the police force is trained and deployed in military fatigues :) For what purpose may i ask?

For the defence of the nation is tasked to the Singaporean-filled Singapore Armed Forces.

For what reason may i know is the Gurkha Contingent walking around in military fatigues on Singapore soil?

Since they are trained in military fatigues, i will also ask what sort of weapons training have they been given and what kind of weapons do they have access to. What is their protocol for deployment and drawing of arms and ammunition?

I say this because, no Singaporean male having served 30 months of national service and having sworn to protect this country is going to stand by knowing a foreign unit with unknown loyalties having the same access to weapons, treated on much better terms.

What the the possibility of such a unit being deployed against Singaporeans in a situation of a popular uprising? :)

I shiver to think of what answers may come out of this. Perhaps the Minister Wong Kan Seng can care to provide the answers to as to allay the fears in the hearts of citizens as well as nagging doubts and questions in other Singaporean members [though i have reason to believe there are a large number of Malaysians so serving] of the of the Police Force, and the enlisted men of the Singapore Armed Forces?

True to their tradition of not afraid to even die in service, Let the Gurkha Contingent take responsibility for the escape like true men like their forefathers.

The unit to be disbanded for the disgraceful performance – lack of common sense.

Perhaps if this is not done, then we can infer that the MHA intends the Gurkhas to operate on purely instructional directives from the top. No exercising of common sense. May be no reflection on the conscience as well in trying times to come. :)

Till then, when the answers and explanations are given and the shroud of secrecy lifted from the foreign mercenary unit. Let me put it in very plain words:

The very existence of a mercenary unit of overpaid, expensive and incompetent Gurkhas is an insult and an affront to every Singaporean Male which taints the dignity and sovereignty of Sacred Singapore Soil. The Gurkhas have no place here – they should be disarmed and demobilised.

  1. Brother Ti Lik,

    The Gurkhas will be here for many many years to protect beloved minister mentor. He is the eldest politician in the world therefore he will need people to take care of him. Imagine if 1 day got revolt against gahmen what will become of Singapore??? Some people will be ferried to the unmarked air planes in Tengah airbase and flown to America. The gurkhas will be tasked to quell the unrest. Money makes gurkhas go around. Go and see the gurkha camp near aljunied and you will find out that gurkhas have very good housing. They obiously are not here to protect you and me brother Ti Lik. What any dictator needs is a force that has no ideological concerns nor a conscenious. Then they can be used to optimal effect. To depend on locals to drive in the tanks against locals(LKY once said if got fluke election results may call in army) may be difficult. Dont forget who control our 200+billion of foreign reserves. And ya, it definitely wont be used to save me(singaporean born and bred). You must also consider our President Nathan earns 4million a year. He needs tons of guards. Imagine if one day he took out his wallet and one kilo of fifty dollar notes fell out, causing a riot, we will need gurkhas to protect our dear president, a president that has the mandate of the people despite never having had a ballot cast in his favour.

    I hope I answer your question.

    • Survival of the fittest. We do what we’re good at. Do you freaking go to a drama school to become an engineer? And duhh, we’re here to protect Singapore and you ungrateful Singaporean. So your telling me that you will work for free? Haha, joke. We do what we can to earn, to provide for our families, isn’t that what every human does? Ignorant. We are not at all driven by the money we get. Will a measley 1800/2000 dollars make a singaporean go through hell, trainings, day and night, duty, carry 10 kg bags, do dangerous work, protect important people, will you do it for the measly amount? Seriously ignorant.

  4. absoultely there is NO room for gurkhas in singapore….singapore must stop recuriting gurkhas …from my point of view its all singapore’s government fault .They keep on sending vacancies for gurkha soldiers ..its all give n take thing….singapore is giving employment n nepali citizen r taking it…its not that all the 2 crores nepalese citizen r dying there of poverty n hunger …they can survive on their own they don’t need singpore’s police job i guess ….its time for singapore government to think wisely in this matter n i’m sure disbanning gurkha from singapore is the most appropriate solution.

    • the singapore government did a wonderful thing my friend, they did the right thing to recruit us gurkhas. your singapore government is very clever and thoughtful to his country…. if we were not around then u and ur fellow singaporean will be at a great risk…. so watchout what you say… you may put your life in danger just by saying that. your lucky that I’m not the kind of gurkha who looks for revenge.. you’ve just been warn…

  6. huh…no matter wht u say abt Gurkhas, its the Gurkhas that singapore needs. But wht actually do u know abt them. U only know the surface abt them so just shut up.
    U talk abt bravery..yes they are brave that they are the ones who have to face the most dangerous criminals and have to protect the most important ppls. They themself are human too, they have their families and frens, they are scared of death too..but they serve the country loyally. so dun talk shit abt the gurkhas. and abt the riots of the gurkha, if u ppl can ask for a pay rise why can’t they??? just becoz u see the damn beautiful housings that they are being accommodated at, u don wht goes inside and how they are living in misery. They serve the country faithfully can’t they have their rights? Their children who were born in singapore do not get citizenships, but a foreign from other country get a citizenship when they give birth in singapore.
    And who the hell told u its $35000/yr. PLSSSSSSSSSSS they have a misrable earning of $1200-$1800/mth so damn it they do need a pay rise. If u r that brave, loyal and damn good..then go join in the police force or army and serve the country. If singapore feels that they can find braver soldiers to protect their country, singapore is not stupid..they will surely disband the gurkhas but alas NO..
    in terms of BRAVERY & LOYALITY, theres no one than GURKHAS.
    yes i admit, they made a mistake abt the escape..but humans do make mistakes..its not as if Gurkhas are not suppose to make a single mistake, and i truely believe that singapore is fair and without a through investigation, they don decided who is wrong and who is right, and they give punishments as the law demands and according to wht the investigations revel. No matter wht u say..the Gurkhas will never stop fighting…and abt gurkhas doing anything for money…u go rot in hell. Just becoz gurkhas are working in ur country, u have no right to say that..they are working just as u are working. So that means wen singaporeans go and work in others countries they will do anything for money..common. A low ppl like u will have low thinking. Show respect to earn respect

  8. Excuse me, yes a fucking nepali here! You are one racist bastard. As much as i respect your point of view, your whole bloody, the word you used on us, post is full of ignorance! Do you really think of us as a waste of money? Hell, i’m just a 14 year old teenager, but i got better wits then you! I’m trying to keep my manners, but WHAT?! $35000 a year? We DONT deserve it? Please, the average gurkha only gets 2000 a month you dumbfcuk! We get paid according to rank, fair ain’t it? And only 50 gurkhas from the thousands get 3000 a month. Sure, we have housing, well, WE DONT FCUKING OWN IT YOU DOG! It’s only temporary, and when it’s time for pension, what? We’re gonna sell the house? NO, we’re not even gonna do shit to our ‘house’! And the press? What about the press, saying we get a 6-month leave? We only get 1 month leave every three years! So if we are such a waste of your precious fcuking Singaporean funds, then send us all back, do you think your Singaporeans will be there? Come on, US NEPALI, are here for a reason. Have you ever read back in History, when the British army took over India, Bangladesh, but never took Nepal, why? Cuz’ hello! We are brave soldiers! The British ain’t daring! Even kids like us have more guts then you do! And why are you ranting about us on the internet? Have you ever met any Nepali people before? Or asked a Gurkha what he has been through? Do you know the shit that every Gurkha goes through to be where he is? Do you think our environment in our ‘home’ is easy? And talk about racial harmony, we are fine with you Singaporeans and i am not racist at all, in fact Singaporean people are pretty alright, but you are judging us by the cover. PLEASE, for the love of god, we are not at all a disgrace to our forefathers. We take pride in whatever we do. Sure, we make mistakes, but were you there when mas selamat escaped? Then, you are not at all to judge! Unless you witnessed it then shut your trap cuz’ your not being fair! You sure are hell thick skinned to be talking about us Nepali people, your refering to OUR race you racist! Why do i say that? Cuz’ a Gurkha is a Nepali, and if it’s one of us your messing with ALL of us! We never said shit about Singapore did we? Why did we come here? Cuz’ it’s a good chance for us. Honestly tell me, if someone gives you a million bucks to build your mansion, will you? Same goes for us! It’s like giving us a million dollars cuz’ your Singaporean government is giving us an opportunity to build our future, we’re not only here for the money, have you been to Nepal? I honestly love my country, but it is hard to live there. And education in Singapore is better. Again, you are really thick skinned and narrow minded. Is your whole point on how we are a wastrel, so that you can save Singapore’s funds? Your whole emphasis was on money from my point of view, and just like you, i will speak my mind. You really don’t care and don’t have a heart, and your really stupid, you know that? Just hope you heard this before, Prejudice is ignorance. Seriously, you are one rotten Singaporean. By far the worst, to be singling our race. there are many foreigners in Singapore, if your blind. So what? Send back all the banglas that do construction so that more Singaporeans can have work? We are doing your dirty work and if we are not worth your 3000 measly dollars then screw you. You sound like an intelligent person, but you are one dumb fuck. God bless you and i hope he forgives you for wishing bad luck on our race. Jai Nepal! Forever the Gurkhas!

    Your post has nothing but assumptions and more assumptions. Gurkha is living in luxury, over paid, incompetent?? Gimme a break.. Stop criticizing those who came over this country to serve & protect without knowing the cold hard facts. Do you think Gurkhas are hand picked randomly by the streets? They do work hard to be where they are now & here you are, talking nonsense about Gurkhas. Oh boy, grow up.

    Just because certain Gurkhas made a mistake doesn’t mean that the whole lot of them is incompetent right? gees.. Do you think Gurkhas will get the publicity when they did something great? I suppose not.

    Oh & Gurkhas working for money? Hahahaha! So I suppose you work for the fun of it or how singaporeans say it ‘Just for fun la’? But oh please, Gurkha soldiers got their kids to look after aswell. We’re all humans afterall. When you said ‘Gurkhas work for money’.. I suppose for your case.. the money will fall from the sky for you? & here you are talking about common sense. Seriously guys.. or boys.. grow up.

    Appreciate the Gurkha because you are lucky to have them. Even American celebrities pay for the protection from the Gurkhas. Learn to love, stop hating.

  14. Hey Chai tik tock lin . You have got no rights to blame us . You bring us here & ask us to help & protect you . But in return what you want to give us ? Send us back to NEPAL is it ? You bloody dog . Watch your white mouth . To tell you the truth , 70% or more of the police peoples are NEPALESE . You only got 30% of Singaporean to protect you . Our great great grandparents were here before then you , they were already longing to protect & die for SINGAPORE rather than our own COUNTRY . It’s not we make Gurkha Contingent . It;s your government who brought us here from NEPAL . You should atleast appreciate that , we are here to help you . You can’t say that we do it on accord , it’s because , we needed money & help you all . Who doesn’t want money ? Who isn’t greedy about money ? Just put yourself in our shoes. Isn’t Singapore a multi racial country ? Then why can’t we come here ? Do you think only people like Indian , Chinese , Malay & Eurasian can come here ? I thought , it was make for people from other country to come here also ? Hey , please , don’t be greedy & selfish , why can’t you just appreciate , how hard we tried & did our job to help you . If there was no NEPALESE here , look how weak you could all be . You better watch out , when NEPALESE leave Singapore , i hope there will be world war 3 . May the atomic bombs dropped in your bloody country . FUCKER . It hurts us, when you talked about us . I thought Singaporeans are thought ful , only 50% of them are . Some of them are such a evil , dog . You better watch out , some day Nepal will be alot richer then Singapore the economy will raised in Nepal & everything will be 10 times expensive then here . You better don’t look down ! DOG .

But we Nepalese , have been serving you all , even though we didn’t want to work as POLICE , but no choice . We do whatever we have with pride & loyalty . And , Gurkha Contingent is a place we are just renting , after we have gone pension , another group of family will stay in our house , so bloody dogs , don’t think , we are just here to stay in the house forever . I may be only a pre-teens but i have pride & guts , to write down what ever i want to let off everything i wrote off my chest .

  16. oi Chia Ti Lik, I guess you didn’t expect this much turn out on your current blog. Congratulations to you for having so much response on your blog but sadly most of it being negative comments (well since the way you put up this blog, you had it coming your way).

    Okay let’s start with me, I am a Nepalese citizen, born and bred in Singapore like you. I hope you get the meaning born and bred as you, I love the same food you love, I watched the same Tv shows as you, I even loved the same Singlish accent u had, I have friends like u (Chinese, Malay, Indian and other races). In fact I lived in Singapore continuously for 20 years but had to leave Singapore since my dad had duly finished his 25 years of service to the Government of Singapore. Not that I am enraged with the facts that I have to leave Singapore but with this kind of statements you have written about us, it’s quite appalling. You should be utterly shameful of yourself for putting up such bad marks on your fellow countrymen. It’s pretty tough for us to leave that country where we grew up, leave our friends behind and most of all our cherished memories behind.

    Well that’s the fist hard part to leave behind, the second part is Nepal. With hardly any knowledge of Nepali culture and language, it’s a fucking struggle over here. The only thing in common we have with the pure locals is our name and our distinctive faces but other than that we are strangers to them. So basically it’s like a reality show that we(Singaporean born Nepalis) having a first world upbringing would fare in a third-world country. I hope you’ll will put yourself in our shoes and just think about how you’ll feel if you were in the kind of situation as we are.

    I can understand how you guys feel when foreigners come to your country and take away your jobs but let’s face it; it does not only happen in Singapore, it happens everywhere. Just blame your government for employing foreign talents and believe me they are doing quite a job employing cheap talents. The Singaporean government knows, you locals can’t be depend upon and that’s why foreign talents are bought in. A good example is the Chinese that are bought in from Mainland China to represent Singapore in the SEA games or the Olympics. I don’t mean to say the Singapore citizens are useless but it’s just that you guys doesn’t have the population to produce as much talents than other countries.

    Talking about racial issues in Singapore, there are loads of it but I am not going to state it. Racism exists in Singapore but it’s not expressed openly. I just want to add that if the Malays and Indians are given the same opportunity the Chinese gets, Singapore can be even better.

    I can go on ranting about so much stuffz but I’ll give u a breather for now. I hope you’ll take time to read this and hopefully I’ll get some remarks off you. Don’t blame us for getting born in Singapore, It’s not as if we requested to be born in Singapore. I hope you noticed the difference between you and me, it seems to me that are an educated person and so am I, but you lack the COMMON SENSE. I have close local friends like you and they accept me for who I am not where I come from. There is a possibility you have met a Nepali and they have put up a bad impression but you can judge us by one person behavior.

    While I was in Singapore I considered myself a Singapore citizen and I proudly sang the National Anthem which I can still remember (have no regrets). Well I can also remember tomorrow is Singapore’s National day. I still love Singapore but it’s the cunts like you who put up a bad reflection on the countries reputation. Well I need your comments aite brother CHIA|!!!!

    p.s
    heard from my friends back in Singapore that there are Chinese mainlanders crawling in the streets of Singapore. Let’s hope how you guys are going to handle the Chinese mainlanders. Tough luck!!!!! :-P

  18. Ti lik u are just creating dishormonious in Singapore. If u blogged about the Gurkhas then I suggest u should also blog about the Chinese from china, filipinoes n Indians which are ‘invading’ Singapore like mushrooms!!!! Singaporeans have no qualms over immigrants nor Gurkhas, in fact singaporeans are busy making Money n living here than to even bother thinking about all this. We are tolerant Singaporeans who just want harmonious living place. I know u are free to blog wotever u wish but bear in mind action will be taken against u if u create further friction on bringing up any sensitive issue which can caused disharmonious.

  21. I served the U.K. goverment. I didnot get paid much. My fellow Gurkhas from Singapore doesnot get paid even half of as much as I did. However, it is not really about money my friends. It is about preserving the identity of who we are known as and what our ancestors did. Nevertheless, we need money to survive, isnt it? Tts all we recieve. No Gurkhas are striking rich.

    My father fought the world war 2 in Singapore as a Gurkha. I served the U.K. goverment for 15 years. My son is in Brunei as a Gurkha officer.

    I am proud to have a brave son.

    So, do not criticize. Buy Khukuri, put it in your house. Appreciate the history of the Gurkhas.

  23. Sad how some Singaporeans are so naive.
    If you were to look at majority of Singaporeans, they’re not at all willing to serve the required 2 years of national service.If they’re ever so unwilling to serve their country, how would you even expect them to risk their lives for something they don’t even love/appreciate?The Singaporean government has no solution except to hire mercenary’s -or if you would like to call them, hired soldiers-.But of course, you would argue that the SPF still does a great job, they do.But honestly, how many do you see on the streets?
    I’ve nothing else to say except that the blogger is merely another self proclaimed hypocrite.
    Have a good day, sir.

  24. From my point of view, Gurkhas are absolutely necessary in Singapore. With the increasing threat of islamic terrorism in Singapore, it would be too sensitive to get either a Malay or a Chinese to kill these terrorists. Malays may not want to do it due to religious reasons, and Chinese may be branded as being anti-islamic and be exploited in the terrorists propaganda.

    Gurkhas do not come here and “do nothing”. Their training is very tough. By this analogy, Singapore SOF are paid much higher, but if SOF do not storm planes to kill terrorist hijackers every other day because there are no terrorist attacks, then they “do nothing” as well?

    They do not get paid much. Moreover, their career lifespan is short. Once they are too old to be mercenaries, this meagre amount of savings is all they have. Anyway, why are you ranting on them? The multi-million dollar scholarships that the Government gives away to foreign HIGH-SCHOOL students so that they can come here to be trained under the Singapore education system is much more ridiculous. In the meantime, Singapore has no lack of bright poly grads with good GPA who were denied university education.

    Don’t you think the scholarship money should be better spent on hiring internationally recognised professionals with proven track records such as investment advisors, Nobel-prize scientists etc instead of hiring foreign high schoolers who come here and only get above average grades?

    Gurkhas are respectable people who earn honest livings and protect our country from terrorist threats. See how awesome they are.

  25. I accidentally deleted my last post. Well typing on a small tiny phone is a beach.

    I think chia ti lik is off his logical platform here.

    Pardon me for going in this line of thought. Looking at it from a pure economic point of view. Comparing the gurkhas as a commodity, his pay is peanuts compared to local regulars in the force.

    You get a much better bargain. Vis a vis physical prowess abilities. Attitude and mental strength.

    So , the jiak liao bee arguments put forth is not really valid.

    And also i was wondering why they are not granted ctizenship as a debt of honor that Singapore pays for their services rendered. Though. That is powers beyond me to comprehend.

    If i may compare. Gurkhas to a sword that is good. That is immense in value. That makes u fear or admire it depending on which side you stand on.

    This sword cuts both ways. And if ever a day its used by the govt for perverse unjust purposes. Thats just a shame. Blame the game but not the playa.

    Their exploits and valor and honor are legendary. Lets at least not tarnish this legacy.

  26. i am a Singapore born Singaporean who have serve my NS as a NSF & NSman in both Army & Air Force units.

    I respect the Gurkhas & appreciate they are serving Singapore & GC. One of the reason is because there are a recent case where 3 armed fugitives escaped to Pulau Tekong however only Gurkha officers captured 2 of them in land. Are all NSF/NSman/REG incompetent to capture just 3 armed fugitives? This is for us to know & for you to find out. I only can say NSF/NSman/REG are smart & not incompetent.

    But the way some of the Gurkhas write here make me start to lose respect to them. I know they are proud to be a Gurkhas but they are always humble to the public (At least for the Gurkhas I have speak with). So please do not spoilt the image of Gurkhas which I have high respect for.

    To add on, sometime things should left unsaid for a reason (& for a better cause).

  27. Sorry, but it’s very obvious that you’re a dimwit who is assuming things up without even talking to any Gurkhas. My Dad was a Gurkha, I lived in the Gurkha Contingent.

    It isn’t as pretty as it seems from the outside and Gurkhas are definitely not treated on “better terms”. And no, my Dad did not earn more than SGD $35,000 a year, plus my Dad was a Senior Staff Sergeant. And on a minus note, our Moms can’t even work in Singapore, they’re not allowed to by the Singaporean government. They are just housewives. Our houses has what your house has, a kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms. We don’t have jacuzzis and spas. The Gurkhas only get a holiday every 3 years*** for about 3 months, in which they go back to Nepal to visit their families. So we’re not exactly rich, being treated on better terms or live a luxury life.

    Why does Singapore need Gurkhas? What do Gurkhas fulfil that other Singapore units cannot fulfil?

    Singaporeans escapes/leaves Singapore just to avoid NS. Some Gurkhas does terrorism under cover work, inside Singapore or outside relating to Singapore, others protects the ministers, without whom, Singapore wouldn’t be where it is right now. And by protecting, I mean, when something really does happen that threatens the population(or selected numbers), they don’t shit in their pants and run for their lives first, like you would. They really risk their lives. There are many stories of which only the Gurkhas know of. Reason why only the Gurkhas knows? The media doesn’t disclose all this, because they do not want to alarm the population of a possible terrorism risk to the selected numbers or even them. So all the Gurkhas get is a small award ceremony inside the Gurkha Contingent for risking their lives to protect Singapore. Still, they are humble about not getting a standing ovation on Channel News 5.

    And judging from your attitude, you’re not even serving your own country. So what rights do you have to judge others that are protecting your country? Why don’t you join the Special Police Force for a year or so, see if you can handle it or not before you open your mouth?
