I hate arguing with people about this, about Malay supremacy.
Many keep saying to me that this is Malay’s country, Malay should fight for our right and so on.
Before I go any further, I would like to remind us about our Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) last sermon :
All mankind are from Adam & Eve, an Arab has no Superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has superiority over an Arab;ALSO a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety & good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to another Muslim & that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow muslim unless it was given freely & willingly. Do not therefor, do unjustice to yourselves.
My dear Malay friend, are we Malay really sure that this country is belong to us? I don’t think so. None of this belong to anybody. It’s belong to the Creator, for all mankind. We just borrow this from Him. Our Prophet remind us to be fair with everyone.
All of us have emotional attachments to the land that we grow up in. Some to the extent of arrogantly claiming that it belongs to them as Tuan’s. But we must all firstly strive to be honest and just beings willing to seek to understand the entire universe and how Mother Nature works as best as we can.
Then we will begin to realise that even ants and bacteria have a right to their existence, and we humans are not the lords or Tuans of anything but just another parasite on earth that owe our very existence to the likes of the cyanobacteria and the plants whose 'waste' oxygen of our lives depend .
The concept is, people who work hard, he the one that will earn and deserve the reward. Simple.
Why keep saying that A is better than B? Why keep saying that our race is better than others?
Yes, Ali is human, but so do Ah Chong and Muttu, they are also human. We human, have to be fair with one another.
I hate to say this, but the fact is, inspite of the NEP, the majority of Malays remain poor. Well, it’s unfair for me to blame the system. Maybe if the system is not working then don’t change the system. Get rid of the people who are manipulating and corrupting the system.
But still, be fair, we have to emphasis the fairness in everything.
Don’t afraid that we might loose power or what, we have to have confidence with ourselves, confidence with our own ability and capability. We have to tell ourselves and tell our children than we have to stop depends on the system, we should depends on ourselves. Have we ever asked ourselves until when we want to depend on the system?
The worst disease is when u keeps relying on others for ur own good and self-interest.
So don’t rely on anybody but u!
Also, I don’t think Malay will fall backward and loose all the voices if we being fair. Malays can never loose power as we are the majority in this country. Even if any political party becomes government, I believe there will be more Malay representatives in Parliament and State Assemblymen.
Actually u don't have to believe me, just see with ur eyes and hear with ur ears on the ground.
Any political party should not forget the People’s Declaration that they once signed, because the people still remembers it. Instead of politicking so much, how about suggesting new ideas to run this nation? Instead of backstabbing each other so much, how about sitting together and discussing how we can improve Malaysian life?
We must fight back by emphasing on the ‘Politics of Hope and Liberation’, which will transform the Malay Mind from the false fear of losing their identity and economical development to a positive force that will create a confident and liberated community
To make a good country, the rakyat must first be sure about their identity and be willing to sacrifice. I am Malaysian first and Islam is my religion, and there is no second. This is where I was born, where I grow, where I live and where my grave will be. I will be eligible to vote next year, and I will do my job as a responsible citizen in the next general election.
