"The patience of the Malays and Muslims has a limit. Do not push us to the wall, as when we turn back we will be forced to push the Chinese in the interests of our own survival [...] The Chinese should not try to be like the Jews in America. It is not enough they control the economy, now they want political control."

Zulkifli Nordin, a PKR MP for Bandar Baru Kulim had been involved in an earlier debacle when he led a protest against the Bar Council forum on “Conversion to Islam” in August, where he was accused of barging into the forum and making an inciteful speech. Yesterday, he accused the Bar Council of supporting apostasy in parliament. I would like to ask a question to all Malaysian. If Muslim compromise with non-Muslims, is it clash with Islamic principles? Can we work together as Malaysian despite religion and believes?
I think it shouldn't be a matter after such a long we have experienced and live together in multi-religion society. Everyone is respecting Islam in Malaysia, so far I haven't heard any cases that non-muslim has insulted Islam as our nation's official religion. It is a common agreement that Islam is the official religion as stated in the Federal Constitution. There is no doubt about this, and of course no one can question it.
Ahmad Ismail is known for controversial actions and remarks made in the fields of politics, business and sports, including the latest controversy in which he utters incendiary remarks about the Chinese community during and after the Permatang Pauh by-election in August 2008. Despite criticism of his remark in the by-election and expressing regret that it resulted in controversy, Ahmad remained defiant and refused to apologise om his "Chinese as squatters" remark. In a further outburst during a press conference on September 8, Ahmad seditiously warned the Chinese community not to seek political power, below is Ahmad statement:
Recently, HINDRAF was banned by home Minister, Home Minister Datuk Syed Hamid Albar. I don't know what is the actual reason on why HINDRAF banned. Is it because they have visited the Hari Raya open house? For struggling Malaysian Indians betterment? Banned for promoting Hindu or Indians rights? Why this kind of discrimination against Malaysian Indian?
We able to do nothing since the home minister already decide, but please address the Malaysian Indians problem. Banning HINDRAF won't solve the 51 years marginalization of Malaysian Indian. We left behind in every sector including education, economy, and others. We only owned around 1.5% of equity whereas our population more than 5 %. Our Tamil school's condition equals to old kampung houses. Our temples still receiving dangers from government. 50 000 thousand of Malaysian Indian without proper birth certificate and Identity card. I can list out hundreds of problem that we are facing today.
We deserve to get all the helps from government as other races in Malaysia. We are not third class citizen. Give us equal rights!
