It occurred because the only way of survival when it comes to the poor farmers was to rent land from the rich groups and with this arising conflict, they thought about the tithing called Zakat Peribadi adopted in Islamic cultures. With this approach, the rich groups had to offer an advance wage in the form of zakat payments (foods or supplies) to the poor in a way of securing labourers, making sure about the returns in the following season. Now, securing labour was not a burden and there was no reason left for the large farmers about handing out charity.
In some other countries, the decline nature of wages works as well as benefits might have caused a major revolution. However, this Sedaka’s poor population chose to go back to the old ways of “Weapons of the Weak” to play against the scheming method of wealthy land owners. It was obvious that the small everyday tactics were not measurable while considering large scale, but the tactics provide social justice in a way of presenting a whole new level of equality. So, it can be mentioned that this small scale tactic is better in certain ways than that of the larger ones, like revolution (Lukács &György, 1971). It is because that at the small village of Malaysia, people had no political power so they could not have thought about a major social change. UMNO was the powerful political party responsible for the disproportionate and unequal style of land redistribution, and the people knew that a sudden change about it was not possible in the nearest future (Scott & James, 1985).
So, with this approach of “Weapons of the Weak”, the peasants continued to maintain the livelihood as well as at the same time they rebelled but not in a manner of revolution. Hence, they did it in a decent approach by making certain terms with Sedaka’s ruling class. Here, their needs of survival supersede a cause of the mass revolt. In this essay, it is quite clear that green revolution is a perfect piece of evidence suggesting Weapons of the Weak constitutes a social movement. The wealthy group of the society used combine harvesters as well as broadcasting to save lots of money as they did not have to hire the labourers. Afterwards, they increased rents and started forcing the tenants to give large payments in advance by forcing them off their lands. The poor people impressively followed the undetectable style of weapons of the weak here which was Zakat Peribadi and at that time it was the only option of payback during the green revolution in Malaysia and with this they safely survived during the situation.
