Amendments to the Constitution

There seem to be a big hoo-haa about the rakyat wanting change.

I want Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat to remember about the 13th May 1969 incident.

Please bear in mind that you are leaders of the people. Every word you utter bears weight on the multiracial Malaysian society.

Many people seem to buy the talks of leaders about discarding the Malay special rights and creating a more equal future.

Of course our good friend Anwar Ibrahim have never said that "Ya, saya akan memansuhkan hak istimewa orang Melayu".

He merely said he offers hope of a new dawn in Malaysia and better equality among Malaysians. I do not know why many seem to be telling me that a vote for Anwar is a vote for equality.

Malaysia's Constitution states clearly that

1. Islam is the official religion thus making Malaysia an Islamic nation.
2. the special position of the Bumiputra and the legitimate interests of all the other communities are safeguarded.

Please read the Constitution of Malaysia HERE.

A change in the Constitution that affects the daily lives of Malaysians from all walks of life should obtain the agreement of ALL MALAYSIANS, not any individual or political party.

No one should do anything drastic until every single Malaysian have their say and voted.

I hope leaders do not play with the people's emotions or unity. It is not easy for us to forge unity in a multiracial country.

This warning goes to Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional.

Malaysia can take a leaf from the Australian democracy. It is compulsory for Australians with voting rights to vote during Elections and when a vote is needed for amendments to the Constitution of Australia (referendum).

Someday, Malaysia must do the same. It is the people's country. Not Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat.

Hi..just to let you know,

Nowhere in the constitution does it specify that Malaysia is a secular or Islamic state. Nor does it state M'sia is an Islamic nation.

However, in Article 3(1), it says 'Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.'

That's the closest indicator we have...& I think it indicates secular, did Tunku Abdul Rahman & Tun Hussein Onn.
