Don?t stir the hornet?s nest called Malay rights
Fauwaz Abdul Aziz
Sep 24, 04 5:18pm

While waving a book on the May 13, 1969 racial riots, Umno?s newly elected deputy chairperson Badruddin Amiruldin today warned that questioning Malay rights was akin to stirring a hornet?s nest.

?Don?t poke at this nest, for if it were disturbed, these hornets will strike and destroy the country,? he said to a thunderous applause from delegates attending the party?s 55th annual general assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

He said the founding of Umno in 1946 coincided with an agreement by the main three races whereby citizenship would be granted to the minority groups in return for their acceptance of Malay special priveleges.

?Fifty-eight years ago we had an agreement with the other races, in which we permitted them to ?menumpang? (dwell) on this land. In the Federal Constitution, our rights as a race have been enshrined.

?Let no one from the other races ever question the rights of Malays on this land. Don?t question the religion because this is my right on this land,? said the fiery orator to another round of applause.

i agree...

just dun ask professionals to come back and say that Malaysia is tanah tumpah darah anda.... tanah air anda...

since we are just penumpang...

nice speech there.... Did Singapore pay u for that??? coz, u are encouraging ppl to go to Singapore and never look back....
u will see an exodus of ppl going to Singapore.... and Singapore will thank Malaysia for being the surrogate mother for 11 - 13 years....(free education from Standard 1 - form 6)....

A colleague of mine from China asked me - "why don't you return to China?" and I told him, "coz M'sia is my home". Did not realize i was just a squatter...

heh... i still thinks that the speech has a lot of political influence in it. it was delivered during the UMNO meeting, hence it has to please the listener, which were mainly malay. also, he was recently elected, which means he has to show that he's 'all for the malay thingie'.

nevertheless, i personally believes that the government is gradually trying to eliminate (to some extend) some of the rights. its just that it cannot be done in a single day and as a malay, im all for that
