DATO' SRI MOHD NAJIB BIN HAJI TUN ABDUL RAZAK,
Malaysian Prime Minister,
Dear Prime Minister,
We refer to the email below from one of our members for your information.
Would you like to comment, please?
We look forward to hearing from you in due course.
Mahathir claimed that the Malays are under threat. Under threat from
whom? Can the Malays be under threat:-
From a minority 35% of the population over the majority 65% which are
made up of Malays?
From a less than 10% minority in the Police, Army, Judiciary,
Attorney General Office and MACC which are predominantly filled by
From a minority of the Members of Parliament where Malays make up
more than 60% the majority?
From a group who doesn't control the air, sea and land? These are
controlled by UMNO and its cronies such as MAS, AirAsia, MISC, Toll
Concessionaires, NAZA, Proton and Perodua.
From a group who doesn't control the supply of basic necessities such
as food, water and utilities? These are monopolised by UMNO cronies
such as Bernas (rice and flour), Water Concessionaires (SPAN, SYABAS,
etc), Telekom (telephone), Tenaga (electricity) , etc
From a group who doesn't control the main stream media. The mass
media are wholly controlled by UMNO and its cronies such as Utusan
Melayu, Berita Harian, New Straits Times, The Star, The Sun, Media
Prima (TV1, TV2, TV3, TV, TV8, TV9 and all the Radio Stations), ASTRO,
etc? Lately even Harakah and Suara Keadilan have been banned!
From a group whose mother tongue and religion aren't enshrined in the
Federal Constitution where Malay is the official language and Islam is
the official religion? Other groups can't even hold any interfaith
dialogues and use of the word of Allah without being severely
intimidated by protests, storming of conferences and warnings from
From a group who can't be appointed the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime
Minister and Mentri Besars and a host of high positions in the Malay
states as enshrined in the state constitution or decree by the Sultans
where only Malays from UMNO can be appointed?
From a group who are ever subjected to intimidation of arrest under
the flimsiest excuse using the ISA, the Police, MACC, etc and a myriad
of repressive laws such as the Sedition Act, Multimedia Act and
treason against the Sultans, etc? Of course UMNO are spared from such
actions and above such laws.
It is a blatant lie that the non-Malays can ever threaten the Malays.
Who is actually threatening the Malays? From the look of things, UMNO
finger prints are everywhere - UMNO Malays are actually the ones
threatening and stealing from the ordinary Malays and non-Malays.
Someone has to be the punching bag and scapegoat for UMNO's cling to
power and thievery - hence putting the blame on non-Malays!
UMNO is a racist party and it is very clear that they are separating
the Sultans from their subjects and the Malays from the non-Malays for
their own selfish ends without a thought of the consequences and our
