The Malay Dignity Congress dignified kleptocracy, religious bigotry and racial apartheid policies of the Malay-Muslims. With
such a mindset, especially when it came from the academia and Malay
leaders of the day, it does not resound as the vision for an inclusive
and tolerant society to propel the country towards modernisation and to
aspire for greatness.
It only exposes the paucity of intelligence
and the will to work hard to earn a living. It also manifests streaks of
insanity for not being able to ascertain the needs of the country. What
a sheer waste of time. What a show of stupidity to the world at large
in a globalised and media-savvy world. It reminds me of the Malay
proverb, ‘katak di bawah tempurung’ (a frog under the coconut shell).
Proarte: Basically, what the Malay Dignity Congress is
advocating is that non-Malay and non-Muslim citizens must not have a say
in the running of the country, that is, they should not have any
democratic rights and should be shut out from political power. In short,
they should be 'Pak Turut' of the Malays. How nice.
have not considered is why are the Malays in their current situation?
Who was running the country for the past 60 years, which resulted in the
Malays supposedly feeling inferior, lacking in dignity, educationally
backward and economically behind? The cause is the Malay leaders
themselves who irresponsibly made hundreds of constitutional amendments
and policy changes over the years, which destroyed the foundations of
The Malay-Muslim ruling elite robbed the nation
blind through kleptocratic cronyism and in order to do this, they dumbed
down the education system, overwhelmingly Malayanised and corrupted the
civil service, brought Islam into the political and public domain
through 'Islamisation', thus isolating the Malays further from other
races. This made them vulnerable to racist and religious
scaremongering and develop an irrational feeling of victimhood, despite
their unjust privileges.
The doyen of kleptocratic cronyism is
none other than Mahathir, with Najib, his protégé, having the dubious
distinction of being the world's greatest kleptocrat. Mahathir's
modus operandi has managed to bring the Malay-Muslim race to
international recognition as a people of low morals, hypocrites, lazy
people riding on the hard work of others and racists who cannot ratify
treaties wanting to end racism and genocide.
If the Malay-Muslim
leaders are the cause of Malay failures, why are Malays clamouring for
Malays only to hold positions of power? This will only to damage them
further. Surely, if Malays are not stupid, they would be
clamouring for excellent leaders and individuals with high integrity to
rehabilitate our broken institutions. Why are they concerned about race
or religion of the individual? Isn't this stupidity of the highest
The Malay Dignity Congress is not offering any solutions in
order to uplift the Malays. By reinforcing racism and Islamic bigotry,
they will not improve the lot of the Malay people one iota. All
they have done in the eyes of the world is to portray themselves and the
people they supposedly represent as a pathetic, shameless, inferior and
morally delinquent people with no dignity.
