Oh my God! What is happening to this country?

To say that I am angry and frustrated and scared would be to put it mildly. I am totally ...... so devastated that I can't write anything on this. You read it for yourself and think about it. HARD. Read on if you dare...

Tengku Faris: Non-Malays should not seek equality

(Malaysiakini) Kelantan Crown Prince Tengku Faris Petra said today that Malays had been coerced into giving non-Malays citizenship and the latter should therefore not seek equality or special treatment.
He said this during his keynote speech at a forum titled "Malay unity is the core of national unity" organised by the newly formed Barisan Bertindak Perpaduan Melayu in Kuala Lumpur today.

Speaking to a crowd of about 1,000 people, Tengku Faris said the Malay rulers would be an umbrella to foster unity among all Malaysians, based on the Federal Constitution and the Rukun Negara.

"Therefore, the rakyat must unite and never raise issues regarding Malay rights and special privileges because it is a quid pro quo in gratitude for the giving in of citizenship (beri-paksa kerakyatan) to 2.7 million non-Malays into the Tanah Melayu federation.

"Thus, it is not appropriate for these other ethnic groups to have citizenship, only (later) to seek equality and privileges," said Tengku Faris, who read from a 11-page prepared text.

However, the crown prince stressed that in an effort to unite the Malays, non-Malays also have rights that must be protected, such as in areas of religion.

As an example, Tengku Faris said non-Malays are allowed to practice their respective religions in peace. They must however do so in accordance with the law and "not be provocative towards Islam".

"The Malay rulers are the head of the Islamic religion and Malaysia is a Islamic country (negara Islam), not secular. We have our own formula (as a country) which is different from others," he added, drawing thunderous applause from the crowd.


He added that the effort to instil Malay unity and defend Malay special rights does not mean that other races would be ignored.

"In fact, if Malay rights and special privileges are taken care of and is not disturbed, it would ensure national harmony. It does not just benefit the Malays but all ethnic groups," he said.

In his speech, Tengku Raris said the 12th General Election results have shown that the Malays are being "challenged" and thus Malays unity is of the outmost priority.

"The election results have shown that the Malays are disunited and facing other ethnic groups who are more dominant politically and economically," he said.

As the constitution provides that the Malays are the natives (penduduk asal) of Malaysia, Tengku Faris said every Malay must defend the constitution and Islam and this can only be achieved through Malay unity.

"We have to make an effort to unite. Don't spilt up. Avoid polemics that can distance us. Ideology (and) having different interpretations does not contribute to Malay unity.

"Discussing about polemics such as Islamic state, secular state, welfare state... Confuses the people... Resulting from this confusion, Malays are becoming more disillusioned," he added.

Somebody please tell me that this a belated April Fool's joke. Tell me that I am stupid and have completely misread the Crown Prince's meaning. Tell me that this is just a nightmare. Tell me anything except that the speech was actually made in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, my country, my homeland. Tell me that the people there didn't actually cheer when the prince said "The Malay rulers are the head of the Islamic religion and Malaysia is a Islamic country (negara Islam), not secular. We have our own formula (as a country) which is different from others."

I am only comforted by the knowledge that the crowd numbered maybe 1 thousand only and that this is another UMNO/BN spin. I am appalled by how the prince could be made use of in such a way.

In a calmer moment I know this is planned trickery by sore losers. Stir up the other races against the Muslim Malays. Then come out and champion the Muslim Malay "cause".

We, the Malaysian Rakyat of 2008 are not stupid!

Maybe a Chinese saying will give us some prospective -'A handful of rice, feeds hundreds of types of people'.

The Regent of Perak is held in high regards by a large majority of Malaysians. It is no surprise there are others who wish to share the limelight. There are, of course, many ways of doing this. Those like Raja Nazrin, do it with finesse and in a dignified manner. They earn the accolades by displaying their intelligence, their reasoning ability and their command of the language. Others who may not have these qualities may do it differently.

Raja Nazrin and the likes are accorded the respect because of their consistent stance and their commitment to worthy and noble causes. To wish for the respect is one thing, to earn it is another

This parasite crown prince of Kelantan must be a good-for nothing chap as he,I believe is living in a coconut shelf.Still harping the racial-inclined rhetoric indicates how shallow his mentality is, and I bet he only knows how to spend the living allowances the state offers to him.Gosh!what a jerk to have this type of pasar malam crown Prince.

You hit the nail on the head. I was sick to the core. Just when i thought the people with blue blood are are it right. But then again, we cant lump all royalties into this category....there is always one bad apple. I will stop eating apple for the time being.

Royalty also need to earn the respect frm the people it is serving.

If talk like this then i think his new title will be clown prince of Kelantan.

Barisan Nasional has finally recovered from the shock of the 8 March 2008 general election. Okay, it took one month, but at least they finally recovered, whatever it may be.

As soon as the full results of the general election came in, I remarked that the earthquake has hit Malaysia (some call it a Tsunami but it was actually more than that). My wife, wise as she always is, commented that the earthquake is not what brings the building down. The aftershocks will. So wait for the aftershocks, said my wife.

The last few days, we have been seeing the aftershocks and I told my wife that she was right. Now we are seeing the real damage of 8 March 2008. Again, in her wisdom, my wife remarked that we are yet to see the full blast of the aftershocks. This is only the quivering. The crash is yet to come. Wait for it, she said, Aiyah, susahlah married to such a smart wife.

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has been making his rounds to meet Umno and Barisan Nasional leaders on the ground. Two days ago he was in Penang and Kedah. Before that he went to Sarawak and Sabah. Yesterday he was in Johor. And currently, even as you read this, he is in Selangor. And the message he received from the ground is all the same. He has to personally take responsibility for the general election debacle and must resign his post.

The people up north told Abdullah in no uncertain terms that he must go and the government has to be handed over to his Deputy, Najib Tun Razak, with Muhyiddin Yassin as the new Deputy. Heavens! In that case I would rather have Khairy Jamaluddin as Prime Minister. At least he is young, brilliant, and has a vision for this country. I mean, if it is going to be just replacing one Umno slimeball for another, then it might as well be an Umno slimeball who has brains (unless we can kick out Umno altogether and put the lovely Dr Wan Azizah as the new Prime Minister).

Mahathir once remarked that his richest Minister is Muhyiddin, who was then the Menteri Besar of Johor. Muhyiddin? I thought the richest Minister would be the then Minister of Finance, Daim Zainuddin. Apparently, Mahathir did not think so. One Umno leader then quipped that Daim may have a lot of money, but all that money belongs to Umno. Daim is just Umno’s trustee. So that would make Muhyiddin richer than Daim.

Anyway, that has now changed. Through a sleight of hand, Umno’s RM42 billion became Daim’s personal wealth when he quietly transferred all the money overseas during the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. Daim ended up owning ten banks or so in Africa and Eastern Europe and Umno ended up broke. That made Mahathir mad as hell and this was the main reason for the fallout between Mahathir and Daim.

Aiyah, whose fault is it all? What do you expect when you ask the fox to guard the henhouse? For sure the fox will whack all the chickens. And then, when the chickens are all gone, you get angry. But is this not the job of the fox, to eat the chickens?

Enough digressing. Let us get back to the story of Abdullah’s roadshow. Umno Johor told Abdullah that he has to go. There are no two ways about it. Again, my wise wife said the night before that that Johor will be the real test for Abdullah. Johor is Umno’s kubu (fortress). If Umno Johor stands behind Abdullah, then he has a good chance of fighting his detractors. But if Umno Johor too turns on Abdullah, then he is finished.

And yesterday Umno Johor told Abdullah that they want him to officially announce his resignation. They left it to him when he will do that. They gave him an ultimatum but did not insist on a timeline. However, it should not be too long into the future. That’s it. Umno Johor has abandoned Abdullah. And, without Johor, Abdullah is dead meat. There is no way he can continue clinging onto power. Umno Johor wants him to openly declare his exit plan with a succession plan attached.

In the meantime, Umno and MCA have embarked on a psy-war campaign. Gerakan and MIC are running around like headless chickens and have yet to decide what to do. There is a good chance Gerakan, together with a couple more Barisan Nasional component members, might consider leaving the ruling coalition and join Pakatan Rakyat. But talk is still ongoing and no decision has been made yet. Gerakan, just like PPP and MIC, were practically demolished in the recent general election so they really have nothing to offer the opposition. At least MCA has 15 Parliament seats -- and that is half the 30 that Pakatan Rakyat needs to form the new federal government.

Okay, back to Umno’s and MCA’s psy-war campaign. Umno is going around telling the Malays that ‘Malay states have fallen to Chinese governments’. This is meant to play on the sentiments and raise the anger of the Malays. Umno even went so far as to say that the March 2008 general election is a repeat of the May 1969 general election -- so maybe a similar aftermath of the May 1969 is required this time around as well.

Aiyah, why is Umno talking about May 1969 being the same as March 2008 and that the same aftermath is needed. Okay, this statement may be veiled or disguised. But is it not dangerous to put ideas like ‘same as May 1969’, ‘same aftermath required’, and so on, into the heads of the Malays? Is all this ‘same as May 1969’ talk aimed at provoking the Malays to rise or is it meant to put fear into the hearts of the Chinese?

At first I thought this was merely meant to get the Malays to rise up in anger. But then the Malays of today are not even close to the Malays of the 1960s. So I did not think the instigation would work. Then it came to me. All this loose talk is not targeted at just the Malays. It is aimed at the Chinese as well. And this convinced me even more when MCA started talking about Islam.

Whatever Umno says will no longer work. They can talk about May 1969 and whatnot. But as long as it is the Malays who are doing the talking, Malays tak peduli and will remain calm. But if it is the Chinese who whack the Malays, in particular whack Islam, then that is another thing altogether. That can make the Malays angry.

Barisan Nasional realises that Umno can keep talking but the Malays will just turn a deaf ear. So now they are getting MCA to do the talking. And MCA is touching on an issue worse than race. They are talking about Islam. Religion is worse than race. Religion can even make people of the same race kill each other like in India, the UK, etc. So it would be more effective to whack Islam than to raise the issue of race. And if it is non-Muslims who whack Islam, then be ready for blood on the streets.

MCA is the true running dog of Umno. Sabah and Sarawak won 54 Parliament seats but they were offered only seven Cabinet posts, five mere Deputy Ministers on top of that. MCA, however, won only 15 Parliament seats but they were given 13 Cabinet positions. Another two and all the MCA Parliamentarians would be in the government. So MCA has almost as much to lose as Umno and they would be very prepared to assist Umno in this race-religious divide game just to protect their positions in the government and to remain the deputy taiko of Barisan Nasional.

Yes, we can see Umno’s sins. We can see how Umno plays the race card. We can see how Umno plays the dangerous game of racial politics. But what we don’t see is MCA also playing the more dangerous game of Islam whacking.

If there is one thing Muslims will not tolerate is insults to their religion. All you need to do is draw some cartoons of the Prophet and millions of Muslims all over the world will kill and burn. Hundreds of lives will be lost and hundreds of millions worth of property destroyed. Religion is certainly more volatile than race.

MCA had better get a grip on things. If Umno wants to talk about March 2008 being the same as May 1969, let them. Even if they want to suggest that the same ‘remedies’ as May 1969 are needed for March 2008, also let them. Malays can handle this. Malays can remain calm. Malays will not bite the bait. But stay off Islam. Whacking Islam is utmost dangerous. The Malays are capable of losing their minds and will go berserk, as Muslims all over the world have proven whenever their religion is challenged.

Okay, call the Malays irrational. Label Muslims as unreasonable. Never mind. I will agree with all that and will not dispute or rebut it. However, if you know all that, then why jolok sarang tembuan? There is no reason to whack Islam. PAS has already dropped the Islamic State issue. They have declared it is no longer on the agenda. They have stopped talking about it for four years now since the fiasco of the 2004 general election. PAS needs to keep talking about Islam to their own supporters to rebut what Umno is saying about them: that PAS has ‘betrayed’ Islam. So let them talk to their own supporters or else Umno will be ‘proven’ right and PAS’ relevance will be questioned. But MCA should not raise this as if an Islamic State equates to a Pariah State, which they very well know will rub the Malays the wrong way.

The Chinese should speak up. The Chinese should tell MCA to shut the fuck up. The Chinese should tell MCA that they trust PAS and are confident that PAS will not betray this trust. The Chinese should scream at MCA and tell that party that fights for Chinese rights that with a mere 23 seats in Parliament there is no way PAS can turn this country into an Islamic State when even Umno can’t with almost 80 seats.

Yes, Umno can’t get the Malays onto the streets. Umno can’t trigger a May 1969 ‘solution’ to the March 2008 election. So now MCA is trying to do that. Let us pray that these MCA agent provocateurs rot in hell for seven generations. And if anything adverse does happen, let us hang the MCA people from the highest tree and leave their bodies to rot in the sun.

I, for one, do not want a May 1969 ‘solution’. Most Malays, if not all, don’t as well. And we Malays curse those MCA Chinese who are prepared to see this country burn and lives sacrificed just so that they can win back ground they lost on 8 March 2008.

Respect is something we earn through our daily deeds in speech and behavior and how we carry ourselves in society.

When respect is given by birth is something very different. Their deeds must reinforce the respect by virtue of birth, some can some cant.

Also respect must be universal to achieve the ultimate, if respect is partial or only to a certain sector it is not complete. Respect crosses all racial lines and religions.

We have NO leaders in this class but YM Raja Nazrin only and sadly despite the resources accorded in education and others.

Cant say much because have nothing good to say, so better shut up!!!

My dear fellow Patrick and Malaysians , I as a Malay and many other Malays belief me, can feel your pain and great despair. It seems the struggle is endless isn't it but we should never give up. We must indeed move towards a new modern century of genuine respect for diversity and multiculturalism and uncompromised belief in struggling for true equality and justice for all Malaysians.

The rakyat must be made to realize that there is nothing wrong as being claimed by the BN propaganda machine, even by spreading the deceitful language game of "frog-hopping" such as by that Mukhriz idiot in his "Ktemoc" blog, of Anwar & Pakatan takeover of fed govt right now. As through genuinely repentent BN politicians who are jumping ship in order to correct injustice (the "democratic" election will always be based on fraud) and defeat a fascist and racist dictatorship of Umno/BN! And now even politicizing ridiculously the pig issue as related to Israel?! What the heck man! Some Malays are indeed hopeless idiots and lost causes, as set in examples by their idiot leaders in Umno! But Pakatan must ensure that PAS must toe the line to the aspirations of both PKR and DAP; of which they've been stubbornly defying with ridiculous declarations such as on aspiring irrationally and deceitfully towards forming an Islamic state and harbouring still racial antagonism and religious superiority towards DAP's leaders and other races.

And this declaration by Pakatan to overtake the Fed Govt is also good timing and fundamentally necessary especially now that the arrogant Kelantan royalty has come out with the most ridiculous and hateful racist-fascist statement (when would some Malays realize that the words of royalty nor Umno leaders are not words of God??!!) ! This's the kind of ruler that will ensure the Malays remain backward and racist ( instead of forward and progressively modern), as blinded by a deceitful fascist "Ketuanan Melayu" ideology! And what a joke about Malay unity?! These people should read the articles by the true and rare progressively modern Malay intellectual Dr. Farish Noor! I'm a Malay who found out after being brainwashed for so long under such ideological crap, that there's no united "Malays" because I actually have no common interest with the fascist, racist, greedy, barbaric, sexist-macho, primitive and unjust Malays such as in Umno! The "Malay Unity" now is another ideology dreamed up by a so-called Malay NGO (but actually Umno "NGO"!) to keep ordinary Malays enslaved by their greedy and selfish Malay masters!! And these Malay masters should remember, MANY ORDINARY MALAYS ARE NO MORE COWS WITH RINGS IN THEIR NOSES, TO BE PULLED ALL OVER AT THEIR BECKING CALL! THOSE DAYS OF SLAVERY ARE OVER AND WE, ALL THE RAKYAT, NOT JUST MALAYS, NEED TO BE LIBERATED RIGHT NOW FROM THE EVIL FASCIST-RACIST DICTATORSHIP OF UMNO/BN, BY A PAKATAN RAKYAT'S FEDERAL GOVERNMENT! AND THAT'S WHAT I CALL TRUE JUSTICE HASL FINALLY REACHED MALAYSIA! AND THANK GOD FROM ALL RELIGION FOR THAT!

I believe there is a very serious breach of protocol amounting to breach of the Oath of Office by a Crown Prince who is appointed according to some State Constitution within a Federal Constitution.

The Appointed Position of a Crown Prince means that he has taken an Oath of Office and therefore, is ABOVE POLITICS.

He is the Crown Prince of a State and he should not dabble in politics at the Federal level.

If I am the Prime Minister I would have instituted the Royal Tribunal{which tries Royalty] to have this Crown Prince removed .

It was rather sickening to hear the speech by the Crown Prince of Kelantan touching on the equality of all Malaysians, the rights of Malaysian to citizenship and of course Malay Supremacy (Ketuanan Melayu). I'm equally sick about people like the disgusting Ong Brothers of MCA playing up the race card on the supposed threat of Islam on non-Muslims.

This Crown Prince needs to know that the Royalty must always be apolitical. What this guy did was to cross the line that separates the realm Royalty and Politics. What he uttered has really hurt the sensitivities of all Malaysians. In fact, his speech sounds like it was written by the 4th Floor Boyz.

This Malay NGO clowns smell very much like an UMNO tool. These racists are actually trying to stir up trouble. The same is been done by MCA and MIC. You know what? I have a theory. Someone is trying to recreate May 13 from out of this chaos.

My theory goes like this. Build up the racial and religious rhetoric to the fullest and get a racial clash a la May 13. Next, declare Emergency, have Parliament suspended and rule by decree. Meantime, put the blame on poor Badawi and have him replaced by Najib. Next, Najib with the blessings of MahaFiraun, rounds up the Pakatan Rakyat and Bloggers under ISA. This will enable UMNO to claw its way back into mainstream politics and have dirt bags like Mukhriz, Toyol, Zam etc. back in action! Now, the can say UMNO is truly DULU, KINI & SELAMANYA.
Ever wonder why MahaFiraun want poor Badawi out? With someone like him around, more dirt will surface. Worse still, if you have a Pakatan Rakyat Government in power the likes of MahaFiraun will be investigated by the law.

So, dear Badawi and Mr. IGP use the Sedition Act on these clowns who are stirring up racial unrest, now!

I find this whole business very odd. See the last two paras of the quoted text:

"We have to make an effort to unite. Don't spilt up. Avoid polemics that can distance us. Ideology (and) having different interpretations does not contribute to Malay unity.

"Discussing about polemics such as Islamic state, secular state, welfare state... Confuses the people... Resulting from this confusion, Malays are becoming more disillusioned," he added.

1) In order to unite all Malaysians, Malays should all subscribe to the same ideology, or at least not have different ones. Hmm. That makes about as much sense as mid-afternoon I spy the married bachelor sifting harmonious decorum blue apples.

2) Discussing controversies that have the same word in it (i.e. in this case "state") will confuse and disillusion Malays. Does anyone else see the magnitude of the insult? Let me put it another way: Any Malay engaged in a disputatious profession (e.g. law, commerce, politics, any other human activity) should resign forthwith or risk a disturbance to mental harmony.

3) Exactly how many Malays (or anyone else, for that matter), are confused and/or disillusioned by "polemics"? I suspect someone somewhere is a little unclear about that word.

4) Having a different point of view doesn't contribute to national unity? Well, if that's the case we should all be loyal subjects of the Crown. The British one.

As a 3rd generation non-Malay Malaysian I really would like to set the record straight :
My great-grandparents and grandparents (representative of most of that generation)who migrated , worked and in some cases were born in Malaysia did not ask for citizenship for NOTHING !
Like other non-Malays of their time they migrated to this country, toiled hard and through sheer blood, sweat, tears and slog made a succes of themselves AND the COUNTRY!
They contributed to the growth and development of Malaya and later Malaysia. They stayed HERE , put down roots and pledged loyalty to king and country.
Citizenship was not given to them on a golden platter for nothing !
They earned it fair and square!
And in case our good fellow Malaysians have forgotten , it was the inability of the Malay Sultanates of past who were unable to face the advance of the British colonial masters (and earlier Portugese and Dutch) that lead to the colonization of Malaya and subsequent loss of Malay rights.
Or have we done so far down the road of revisionist history !!!!!

You know how it is in movies? Where it just seems too easy when the cops get the bad guy? Then, things begin to get more exciting before the real bad guy is caught? Well, this whole issue with Malaysia right now reminds me of those movies.

It just seemed too easy when BN was denied two-thirds majority and we were all so happy. I think things are going to peak before it gets better.

Our forefathers came to this country and made Malaysia what it is today. They fought for our independence 50 years ago and their determination, sweat, and blood EARNED US OUR RIGHTS. So, NIAMAH to all those who think otherwise.

Come to think of it, I heard of the Hang Tuah story of being a Chinese actually. It's Ang Tu Ah or something like that. Not sure if this is true nor am I saying this is true. But if it's not true, I'm not sure if you guys noticed in our history lesson nowadays, the Hang Tuah history is no longer in the textbook. Removed. Vanished. Buried somewhere in our very own Malaysia X-file.

* Remember, if it's not true, why is it removed??

I think some Royalties do not realize this

1. Many "non-malay" Malaysians do accept & respect the Royalties; after all we do sing the Negara Ku.

2. They musta been fed some crap that non-malays do not want nor respect them

3. Respect is EARNED

I am glad this speech turned up

Now we know

Some defended this speech as being written and then being read out loud..

now One must ask Oneself (I am trying out my royal speak here)

Should One just read a prepared speech without having gone through it?

Can One not say "I do not subsribe to this speech" even after having read the offending passage out loud?

Does One not have One's own Mind and Brains to digest what One has Read and LEAVE the stage in Disgust?

I wouldn't be surprised that some of our Royalties are absolutely GOB SMACKED by the antics of their relatives after this speech

I know how you feel, I was totally sadden and frustrated at the same time. I was asking myself, how can a Prince who I assume have travelled the world, seen the world and most probably well educated to say such a thing. Looking at the development the past weeks after the elections, I have a feeling that we are still a long way from being a united nation or "Malaysian".......we might have taken the first steps towards that now but we are still far from acheiving a true Malaysian state. I think we should also come to terms with this but we should try to educate our children and the younger generations to look past the skin factors and eventually, one day our children or children's children can call themselves proudly "Malaysian".
I know who I am.......
A Malaysian, born and bred here....
To hell with those who see otherwise.....

Pat Teoh and all my Malaysian brothers,

The young Tuanku's still living in his great grandfather's era where the melayus will simply, blindly do the daulat tuankus no matter what. Gone were the days of Hang Tuah of old. We, the new Malays should adopt the Hang Jebat character. Stand for what is right and fight for what is wrong. Without fear and/or favor. This is not the old age of only those in priviledged big bungalows and limos were the only ones who are capable to travel and browse the world. Gone were the days of pak turuts. I subscribe to anyone who was born in this country is a Malaysian and each has his/her rights to ask, and say their piece of mind. Malays, Indians, Chinese, others ; as long as they have in their hands a Malaysian birth certificate, then it's a 100% rights which you shouldn't have to beg no more.

The fact that that was delivered outside of his hometown. and homestate beats me too. ( Wonder if they've got a police permit for that?)

Now, don't say we all have no respect for the Malay rulers. Look at in the case of the Terengganu Menteri Besar where our Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Yang diPertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan
'interfered'. I say that's a decision well-made, well- executed. Rakyat of all races, we all say Daulat Tuanku to His Highness.

Now, all these boils back to the hot topic of the day: The sleepy leader that we have. You'd think this will happen if it's TDM at
the helm? Remember the days when he stripped some of their worldly priviledges? I bet the slow-cooker'I have no pressure' PM does not blinking understand what's going on around him. Not then, not now. Not ever.

Anyway, what Malay rights are we talking about if you are not a son, a relative, son in law, or a brother of a minister; and/or a yang berhormat?

As far as we are concerned, we are no better than you all, non- Malay, non-Chinese, non- Indian brothers. Like you Pat, we are all one and one Malaysian braders. Lah!

FYI the Kadazans in Sabah are also 'penduduk asal'. HAH! Where's the Ketuanan Kadazan then bro!? If only someone told the 'Tuanku' this. Then he'd be having second thoughts about his 'Ketuanan' fiasco.

i dun effing care whatever these blue-blooded people sayin'...i mean, he should rephrase it to nonbumis, hah!! according to history and agreement of those nonbumis ancestors and between bumis, yeah some of your rights are limited and the constitution can't be amended so f**k off!! there's nothing u could do about it! in order for nonbumis to be Malaysians, they've to be stripped off some rights. izit a bad thing or good thing? well, ask those dead lawyers who hail not from only Msia but also some from India and Britain if i wasn't mistaken that helped amending the constitution! go learn the history of M'sia first before some of u spouting stupid bullocks. i actually do believe in equality and i was so sad when my most beloved chinese and indian besties were struggling after spm but we bumis easily attain place in matric and uitm :(

KETUANAN MELAYU ....... MELAYU......mesti di jaga! Kalau tidak, jahanam!!!!!

Punca segala masaalah sekarang timbul dari SATU sahaja sebab:

Quota 99.99999% (lebihkurang) mesti di berikan pada kaum bumiputra = MELAYU di universiti. Untuk menjamin 99% bangsa Melayu ni mendapat tempat di universiti kita, berjuta-juta rakyat yang majoriti yang juga kaum Melayulah yang merana. Sebabnya :

1. Doktor-doktor yang mungkin hanya layak menjadi jururawat2 di lahirkan untuk mencacatkan bayi-bayi yang baru di lahirkan.

2. Hakim2 yang telah diujudkan yang tidak berapa tahu bahasa Inggeris. Itu sebab terlahirnya Linggam yang teragung tu.

3. Guru-guru yang hanya tiga suku pengetahuan mereka di tugaskan untuk mengajar anak2 di sekolah. Generasi yang macam mana akan di ujudkan?

Jangan salahkan Tengku. Baginda hanyalah membaca dari petikan yang telah di sediakan untuk baginda di bawah naungan pemerintah Melayu yang teragong kini.

Apa salahnya dengan memasukkan mahasiswi-mahasiswa yang betul-betul bijak pandai tak kira kaum Cinakah, Indiakah, Bangalikah, Ibankah, dalam universiti kita?

Bukankah majoriti Malaysia yang terdiri daripada kaum Melayu yang juga akan mengecap perkhidmatan yang betul-betul first class ini??

Pikirlah sendiri. Kita rakyat miskin Melayu yang sebagai majoritilah yang merana kerana polisi kerajaan yang bodoh ini. Kita masukkan kaum Melayu yang tidak berqualiti dalam universiti dan cuba sedaya upaya untuk menghalang kaum lain yang bijak pandai dari universiti kita. Dengan tidak mempunyai pilihan, mereka ke luar negeri. Adakah mereka yang bijak pandai ini akan pulang untuk memberikan perkhidmatan kepada rakyat miskin macam kami?

PIKIRLAH KAUM PEMERINTAH MELAYU YANG BODOH kerana kaum melayu yang miskin macam sayalah yang merana......

Sorry, can't finish reading this. I barfed so hard by the time I reach the part that implies the Ketuanan Melayu.

Eerrr...have we been absorbed into the black hole and warped back in the time Before Kris, I mean before christ? What is that Petra fler trying to say? That the people working hard for this country's economy (and we're not talking about those who work in the government sector here...), need to eat shit served on a pewter platter? We are all malaysian man, let's just move on with it. This rubbish about ketuanan melayu should be sliced to pieces with the Taming Sari. RACISM IS WRONG. Isn't it what all religion teaches??? This Ketuanan Melayu thing is just a big fat excuse to becoming dormant and insignificant in life for the purpose of, i don't know....being just plain lazy perhaps? "We exist therefore all others bow to our needs". Pray hard to be a Sultan in your next life lar...

It's that same feeling i get when driving in the fast lane. There will be this car going at a speed that would make a cow feel like its SuperCow, refuse to barge from the fast lane and make sure everyone else who are in a hurry to become productive stay behind him..

Life changes through time. If you don't like it, create a time machine and go back to Kegemilangan Melaka time lah..Then you can flash all the keris you want. Today is the day we work hard to progress, especially in our mentality...

Man, I'm getting really, really sick of this Ketuanan Melayu thing. I'm from Sarawak, I was talking to my friend the other day, and yes, he's a Malay. Guess what he said?
"What the hell with this Ketuanan Melayu thing?? Never heard of it, never want to know."

Yeah, I agree with some of you here. I'm a mixed Chinese and Bidayuh, so I'm half Bumiputera. So, if all these things are about Melayu, hak orang Melayu, then, how about the other Bumiputeras in Malaysia? Shit la, looking at it, I really pity the Orang Asli in the Semenanjung Malaysia.
