For non-Malays, the future is bleak - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy

Cicak Boy : The Non-Muslims will never be looked on as equals in any muslin country for the simple reason that islam does not allow that.
If we want proof of that just look at all muslim majority countries to see how minority Non's are treated.
Malaysiakini : “The great majority of us are required to live a life of constant,
systematic duplicity. Your health is bound to be affected if, day after
day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what
you dislike and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune.”- Boris Pasternak
Last November, in arguing that PKR should expel its then deputy president Azmin Ali, I wrote: “Azmin’s continued reliance on outsiders to ferment trouble and consolidate support is the existential threat facing PKR...” As
events have played out, it is apparent that the existential threat
facing Perikatan Nasional (PN) is the multiracial coalition that PKR
leader Anwar Ibrahim ostensibly leads.
remarks by ousted Bersatu/Pakatan Harapan big cheese Dr Mahathir
Mohamad who said that DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng is not “anti-Malay” and that Anwar would never be accepted by the Malays because he is “too liberal”, are cringeworthy in its naked appeal to Malay emotion.
the reportage of what made Lim “not anti-Malay” is a litany of lapdog
behaviour that the DAP demonised the MCA for. The fact that Mahathir
claims that Lim was essentially under his supervision and backed off on
policy initiatives does more damage to Lim and the DAP than it reassures
those Malays who supposedly support the Malay uber alles (above all else) PN.
about this. The DAP in their lapdog role did everything their Malay
counterparts wanted but it was not enough. The fact that Mahathir's
Bersatu was not widely received by the Malay polity should have been a
wakeup call to Harapan that it would be better to commit to a
multiracial agenda instead of carrying on with the BN concept.
factotum Rais Yatim said after the Semenyih by-election that Malays
could not accept the careless action of DAP and would not accept them in
their villages. What does this tell you about "ketuanism” (supremacy)?
Mahathir's own words, the millions Lim as finance minister poured into
“Malay areas”, the alleged backtracking on the Unified Examination
Certificate (UEC), the fact that elder DAP statesperson Lim Kit Siang (photo) received the moniker “Khat” Siang, all this, and the Malays still cannot accept DAP?
any non-Malay could vote for MCA and MIC knowing that Harapan
non-Malays were bending over backwards in a supposedly “progressive”
Harapan regime is beyond me. We now have token membership in a Malay uber alles government which means that there will be absolutely no pushback from the non-Malays in PN.
the Malay establishment wants are rich Chinese plutocrats who fund them
and political operatives that kowtow to them. This is essentially the
“social contract”. Lim attacks another Chinese party – the MCA –
over TARUC's (Tunku Abdul Rahman University College) funding while
Malay-only institutions are funded by Harapan, and this is not enough
for the Malay uber alles crowd? I used to be able to mount a
credible defence for the MCA but how could anyone believe their tokenism
benefits the non-Malay community?
The reality is that the only
person who has made “anti-Malay” remarks is the old maverick. He has
called them lazy, always looking for handouts, obsessed with religion,
but more importantly, finding a way to blame the Chinese community for
the failings of successive Malay uber alles policies.
perception is that the DAP is monolithic, which makes it easier to
stereotype the party and demonise its political apparatus. The fact that
some DAP political operatives have no problem putting their foot in
their mouths and, aided by online mobs, nurture a perception of
arrogance and hubris. This aids the far-right in its efforts to demonise
Former minister Zaid Ibrahim (photo),
who always manages to provoke - and is a good thing as far as I am
concerned - wrote something interesting three years ago. He said: “So I
urge young Malays to plan their lives properly. Don’t make the same
mistake I did. Malaysia is a sick Muslim country that teaches you the
In his commentary "The benefits of migration",
Zaid wrote about the fallout of the piece and elaborated on certain
concepts which are beneficial to consider here. He wrote: “There are
many things the Malays can learn by migrating. They need to realise that
being in the majority and being able to impose their will, as they
like, do not always bring tangible benefits. As migrants, they then
realise what it is like to be a minority. They have to, by necessity,
become part of a larger community.”
Here’s the thing. Online, some
Malays write about how “good” the minorities have it here. They talk of
all the “Chinese” billionaires but what they don’t talk about are the
plutocrat/political class like Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor who declared
their assets to their own cabal and who think that two million is pocket
They think that the DAP is a stand-in for the Chinese
community not even considering the fact that when DAP was in federal
power, they were bending over backwards for Malay power structures, the
far-right and agents of the fascist state. The very people who claim to
be working for the average Malay but in reality, were working for their
own benefit and of course, for the aims of the deep Islamic state.
fact that Malay political operatives in Harapan were not correcting
this narrative or offering a counter-narrative should tell you something
about how politics in this country is and how non-Malays are going to
have it rough for the foreseeable future. Do you really think that
the establishment hates Anwar because of his alleged sexual misconduct?
You really think the Malay establishment hates Anwar because he
betrayed Umno? The only reason they hate him and fear his rise is that
he had the audacity to attempt to subvert the system with a multiracial
And you know what the big joke is? Anwar (photo)
himself has to pander to these people. This is why he and young leaders
talk about the super liberals taking over the discourse. This is the
raison d'etre of his "don’t spook the Malays” agenda. This is why Anwar
always had god-level patience because he wants to assume power through
the old paradigms instead of building on what many people know could
save this country.
Think about what Zaid wrote: “What has gone
wrong with our country is that the majority suffer a severe sense of
inadequacy, some of which is real, and some, imagined. In attempting to
rectify this imbalance, the majority have taken the route that promised
them instant power, and are content with a superficial sense of
Anwar suffers from that too - the easy way to power.
Compromise when compromising is more destructive to the majority than
consensus building which is difficult but is the panacea to the majority
of problems in this country.
The perseverance, accommodation and
belief in secular values of non-Malays are used against us. The fact
that we thrive and become successful are used against us. The fact that
we do this in a system which demands complicity is used against us.
we are told not to make noise because the Malays want to have a dignity
congress where they spew hatred toward other Malaysians. We are told to
keep quiet when khat and Jawi are forced upon us. We are told to keep
quiet when Malay power structures make noise because to do so, would
invite Umno/PAS back.
Well, you know what? Non-Malay political
operatives were bending over backwards and it was not enough. And you
know what? You don’t have the DAP to kick around anymore, so you go on
with your Malay uber alles policies.
You can have another

for the murder of firefighter Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim. You can rattle

In the end, the majority will suffer because your policies
have failed. The only reason why this country works is because of the
"super liberals" and the fact that there are productive economic
enclaves which enables the 'ketuanan' system. Wreck that and reap the
