Why bring up racial sentiments and provoke the nation? Now, the Malays, Chinese and Indians are at a very uneasy state. They see one another with caution and differences. This has never happened before when BN was ruling the nation in a stable manner.
As far as I know, even a PAS candidate managed to defeat a MIC candidate in the GE in March 2008.
According to an article in Rockybru, there is a SMS going around saying :
Sebarkan: BN: 140 Kerusi (MP Islam - 89 kerusi; MP bukan Islam - 51) Pakatan: 82 kerusi (MP Islam - 43 kerusi; MP bukan Islam - 39) Katalah jadi 30 yg lompat, semua bukan Islam, maka kerusi Pakatan 43 MP Islam & 69 MP bukan Islam..jika 30 yg lompat, 5 Islam 25 bukan, maka Pakatan jadi 48 MP Islam & 64 bukan Islam..jika inilah yg Anwar kehendaki, maka dia akan memusnah Islam & Melayu di M'sia..kita berdoa agar ia hanya impian kosong & Allah lindungi BN.
Not that I am a fan of the Opposition, but allow me to note that even if Pakatan Rakyat has a higher percentage of non Muslim MPs, the Dewan Rakyat has in total 132 Muslim MPs and 90 non Muslim MPs.
If a non Muslim MP tables a motion that slams Islam and wants the Parliament to declare that Malaysia is not an Islamic state or that Islam shall not be the official religion in Malaysia, do you logically think that will be passed?
I can bet with every dollar I have now that Islam and the Malay rights will be protected in Malaysia given the equation of 132 Muslim MPs and 90 non Muslim MPs. Text messages like these are really foolish!
Please take note that I am not implying anything here and I for one would like to set the record straight that I respect the Malays as the majority population of the country with specific Bumiputera rights.
Note that Bumiputera rights here include not only Malays but the Indigenous people as well. Also, I strongly agree with the Constitution of Malaysia and our policies that Malaysia’s official language is Bahasa Malaysia and of course our official religion is Islam.
There is no question about this and I will defend my country and my views if anyone questions these.
Again, I vote for unity and a progressive society !
