PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang, the Muslims are already in power in
this country. The PM and his deputy are Muslims. The king and sultans
Almost all pengarah (director-generals) in
government service, including the heads of the armed forces and police
are Muslims. The whole political structure and all state MBs and CMs,
save one, are Muslims.
The only difference is they (Muslim leaders
in Pakatan Harapan) agree to share some power with the non-Muslims. You
and your partner in crime want to grab everything even to the extent
that the total pie may shrink drastically if you do that.
David Dass: Here are the facts.
Chinese are 26% of the population. Indians are 7% of the population.
Indigenous people of Sabah and Sarawak, 12%. So 26% + 7%+ 12% = 45%.
About 55% are Muslims.
2. MPs are elected from constituencies. Gerrymandering was done by Umno. Pack Chinese into as few constituencies as possible.
Indians are not the majority in any one constituency. So they can only
be elected if Chinese and Malay voters also vote them in. Which is a
4. Allocation for East Malaysian states is higher
because of their special status under the constitution. The MPs from
Sabah and Sarawak were the vote bank for the BN until GE14.
There has been no democracy in Saudi Arabia for thousands of years. Rule

Ours is a constitutional democracy where all citizens are equal before
the law and have one vote each upon attaining the age of 21 years.
Non-Muslims along with Muslims have contributed and continue to
contribute to the development of the country. Non-Malays pay tax.(Yes, Apartheid style)
All state governments, except Penang, are dominated by Muslims. All
Malay rulers and all state governors are Malays. The civil service, the
police, the armed forces and the judiciary are overwhelmingly Malay.
8. Islam is the religion of the Federation and receives substantial support from the government.
9. Article 153 of the constitution guarantees Malays special assistance.
10. The non-Muslims in government are working hard for the benefit of all Malaysians. As are the Muslims in government.
11. PAS record for economic development in the states they control has been dismal.
Our economic system is capitalist. We subscribe to the free market.
Private enterprise keeps our economy moving and our people employed. The
Chinese are entrepreneurial by culture and tradition. Their energy and
enterprise are good for the nation.
13. Chinese and Indians did
not come to Malaysia as a colonising force. Most came as a source of
cheap labour to clear our forests and to build infrastructure and to
establish the rubber and tea plantations. They earned their right to
Conclusion - Malays need not fear being dominated by
non-Muslims. The Malays are firmly in charge of the country. And Malays
will never be left behind as the nation develops. It is the combined
efforts of all races that will take us forward.
