Out of the number of reports filed, most of them are from UMNO, BN. And to some liberal minded people including myself, it is no longer a legal issue but instead whatever it is said, e.g Dollah Badawi instructing Conan Mansor to lodge a report is entirely racial motivated.
Do you people remember the few quotes that is always stated and shouted by UMNO bozos and assholes at the assembly? For instance:
- Don't mess with our rights! Time has come for us to act against those who question Malay special privileges!
- There is no religion above Islam, don't challenge us! Whatever is required for Malay development, we will push for it!
- Bangsa Malaysia is the Malaysians with Malay as the pivotal race!
- Malays are marginalised in Penang and they have the right to express their feelings!
- New Economy Policy (NEP) is the social contract, it will never end!
- Do not question and challenge the position of the Malays and Islam in this country
Guys, the government in Malaysia is still not quite efficient and flexible enough because there are still many figureheads that are 'narrow-minded'! Let's take one example: remember ACP Zulkarnain Rahman? You judge him from the account of how Haris was taken away with a friend of him at his side and Zulkarnain asking the shots. Does that tell you how narrow-minded Zulkarnain is and this perhaps explain why he refused the BERSIH permit?
Leadership still remains week because of this mindset and lack the foresight. In this case, guys, please listen to those liberal and open-minded people like Penang CM who says that this fuzz is distracting the people from the actual truth of economic hardship. Or listen to this gentleman, who said that only 'narrow minded' people tend to make the fuzz and play the racial card.
Quote from the Star:
As what Daniel Plainview said, "I'm going to bury you underground!" This time, it is BN and Dollah Badawi that is digging their own graves and burying themselves sooner.
Penang Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Abdul Malik Abul Kassim said only narrow-minded Malays would kick up a fuss about petty issues like the controversy surrounding DAP chairman Karpal Singh now,
Commenting on reports the Malay community was angry with Karpal Singh’s remarks, Abdul Malik said the “Malays” were not a single entity.
“Only narrow-minded Malays will create hype about this issue. The bigger group of Malays who are progressive are thinking more about the country’s future,” he said during a press conference at the Chief Minister’s office in Komtar yesterday.
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the Federal Government was creating an issue to distract attention from economic hardship faced by the people.
