Malay, Chinese, and Indian are divided into racial line. May 13 proved that racial sentiment still alive in Malaysia after independent. UMNO and PAS, (Malays) are talking about their unity. Now my question is what will happen to the minorities? Is it good for everyone start talking about their own race unity from today?
Malaysian politicians should realise that in this age of globalization, real competition comes from people of another country. The government should be mindful of the fact that race-oriented policies will dampen investments climate and people’s spirit to competency. Unhealthy competitions between the own nation people only silently destroy the peace and harmony that has been built so far.
What we have in Malaysia is the majority seems to be vulnerable of themselves and their position. Minorities have no confident on majority’s ruling. Should Gerakan, MCA, MIC start their respective race builds for Indian and Chinese unity like the way UMNO wish to do with PAS? What will happen if everyone starts uniting among themselves? What happens to 1Malaysia then?
If UMNO is sincere , why not talk to all PR component parties namely PKR, DAP and PAS jointly for a united Malaysia and help the PR government to rule the state now in their development plans rather than spending huge sums of unnecessary and wasteful taxpayer’s money forming a parallel government in PR ruled states.
Malays should believe multiracial liberalism concept, then only we able to form strong and competent Malaysian. After more than half century of national independence we are still talking about unity among Malays, among Chinese, among Indians. These should be the issues of the past and now as Malaysian we should get on the progress and developments. So I hope after this, the politician and the people only talk bout all Malaysians unity rather than their respective race unity.
