Despite 51years of independence, we are still no where when it comes to race relation, the main culprits is politician will not hesitate to play this issue for polital mileage.
Our politician needs to learn some decorum. They need to inculcate good values. They need to project the image of civil society, they need to show the world that Malaysia has come of age.
The Malays, Chinese and Indians who walk the street and live in the kampung and small towns have no problem with one another, being malaysian and multiracial they have nothing but mutual respect to each other. They could sit down and have teh tarik without any racial barrier.
We need politician like the Late Tun Razak, Tun Dr Ismail, Tun Sambathan, Tun Tan Siew Sin and with great respect TUN Mahathir, we need politician with high sense of duty to the kings, country and people like us. I have highly respect for Raja Muda Perak Raja Nazrin for his intellect, wisdom and righteousness, he will should have bigger role to advise the politicians so that truly civil society becomes a way of life in Malaysia.
Whatever the occasion may be people in malaysia need to understand the Malaysia is Malay/Bumiputra country this is important and it is historical facts. just like the english,scots, irish and welsh in united kingdom retaining thier identities in spite of thier Britishness, they defend thier identity in spite of presence of others.
Thus Malaysian as indigenous country must retain Malayness, Malaysia is not an immigrant country like the USA, Australia, New Zealand or Canada where the indigenous populations has totally and completely suppressed to the point of extinction. This is an indigenous Country.
However muslim we need to understand that while this fact is valid it also comes with responsibility. Malay Bumiputras Leaders need to clean up the house and improve thier performance Otherwise it is going to be the beginning of the end..
Be a Proud Malaysian....Love everyone and stay unite as fellow country man of our proud motherland MALAYSIA...............by armand
