Malaysian prime minister Najib started an Apartheid-like policy on 14/9/2013. The policy will help the bumiputra(Malays) only based on race. Apartheid is a system of discrimination based on race, which wsa condemned and ended in South Africa in 1990.
Should the world condemn this race-based policy which discriminates and divides the multiracial nation? Do we still remember how the world community joint forces in condemning Apartheid in South Africa?
Do you agree this race-based policy(discriminatory policy base on race) should be condemned world-wide?
The policy will help on the bumiputra(Malays) only based on race.
What about Singapore? English is dominant language of Singapore, it benefits a tiny minority people like eurasians and peranakans and angmohs who used english as their main speaking language during colonial era.
Who are the Peranakans?
From another paradigm, Singapore could be seen as the domination of one group over another.
Most of the leadership has been drawn from the Baba Chinese community, a group cultured in Malay and “Colonial British.” Babas hold strong family values, community cohesiveness, and tend to respect authority.
This is in contrast to the southern mainland Chinese migrants to Singapore who fled oppression and tended to oppose authority.
Thus patriarchal leadership with neo-Victorian values is not something the migrating Chinese accepted openly.
But any discrimination policy based on race by any government (Apartheid system) is already being condemned and banned in South Africa in 1990. Just like chemical weapon is banned by civilized world.
Shouldn't the civilized world pay attention to this issue, as it is with the chemical weapon in Syria?
In short, civilized world and any right-thinking people would not accept race-based policies (Apartheid) in any form!
PM Najib and his party (um--no) won the election on 5/5/2013 with 49% of votes only. They are arrogant and uncivilized to start a massive discriminatory race-based policy to help the bumi (Malays) whch have already control most of the country Government-linked Companies like Petronas, SimeDerby, Telekom, Tenaga, Banks, etc.
In fact the government should start any Apartheid system again in modern time. Do your agree?
'China will stick to the path of peaceful development,' says Li Zhaoxing
Li Zhaoxing, the no-nonsense former foreign minister of China who often courts international controversy with his blunt style, made headlines again last week when giving a speech at a university campus in Shenzhen.
“There are some that believe China and the US are two global powers and could govern the world together. Only a fool would believe this kind of talk,” Li said during an event on September 12 organised by the Atlantic Council of the United States at the Research Institute of Tsinghua University in Shenzhen.
Several Chinese media outlets misinterpreted this quote, and reported Li had said, “Only a fool would believe that China is now number two in the world.”
In another Atlantic council event in Washington DC last night, Li addressed this misinterpretation, and explained that striving for hegemony and ranked status among nations was not China’s priority,Chinanews.com reported.
“China will never seek to become a hegemonic power,” Li said, a line that he has repeated for decades. “China will stick to the path of peaceful development and will rely upon the sweat and tears of its own people to expand and grow. China will never seek to become number one, number two, or number three.”
Li also said that China was still a developing country, with one hundred million living people below the poverty line, and needed to reach a consensus with other nations on power relations and “mutually beneficial co-operation.”
“China should strengthen co-operation with other developing countries as a foundation for diplomatic work and engage in positive relations with its neighbours,” Li said. “Of course, it is also particularly important for China to develop relationships with global powers such as the US.”
Li is no stranger to the Sino-US relations, and first came to prominence as China’s ambassador to the United Nations between 1993 and 1995. He later served as China's ambassador in Washington.
His most famous outspoken remarks include calling Nato's bombing of China’s Belgrade embassy “no casual mistake" in 1999.
He has also spoken out against improper usage of the Chinese language, and said in 2012 he “detested … people who like to mix English words in their [Putonghua] conversations.”
Chinese People in Singapore also cannot speak mandarin properly, this is mainly due to destruction of chinese education system and imposed system of english education system by babas like Harry Lee Kuan Yew in order to secure power.
This is discrimination and suppression of chinese people in Singapore. It must also be opposed.
he “detested … people who like to mix English words in their [Putonghua] conversations.”
My statement is shouldn't we as a civilized world come together and condemn PM Najib race-based policy, like the civilized world condemns chemical weapon???
"In a high-profile announcement, Najib trotted off a list of over RM31 billion in various loans, contracts and programmes that will be made available to the group.(Malays). "
Could civilized world, including Singapore, accept implementation of race-based "Apartheid" policy by pm Najib in Malaysia??? Should the world come together to condemn pm Najib in Malaysia???
note: President Obama said the civilized world could not accept the use of chemical weapon in Syria. I agree. But I also would like the world to take a look at Apartheid-like policy by pm Najib on 14/9/2013 in multiracial Malaysia. Could the world accept implementation of Apartheid-like policy in modern time!!!
Thank you for your views.
"In a high-profile announcement in Shah Alam this morning, Najib trotted off a list of over RM31 billion in various loans, contracts and programmes that will be made available to the group, with the stated aim of strengthening Bumiputera economic participation and boost their ownership of commercial property. "
If you read the bumiputra (malays) economic agenda, started by pm Najib on 14/9/2013,
it is totally racist and discriminatory based on race. Is this new Apartheid-like racist agenda acceptable to modern civilized world???
Please share views with your friends if you do not agree with this Apartheid-like racist agenda in modern world. SAD day in nultiracial Malaysia on 14/9/2013.
"Bumiputera Economic Empowerment Plan (Apartehid-like plan)– Najib’s double-barrelled repudiation of the New Economic Model and 1Malaysia policy The 50th Malaysia Day had been the most troubling Malaysian anniversary since it was declared a public holiday four years ago, for only two days earlier, the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak had virtually renounced his reformist credentials as Prime Minister for all Malaysians as well as the torch-bearer for national transformation, whether governmental, political or economic.
Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Najib’s announcement of the RM31 billion Bumiputra Economic Enforcement Plan two days before Malaysia Day was “a very lucky day” and “the most-awaited event”, and it is understandable why Muhyiddin was so elated, for it marked the triumph of his “Malay first, Malaysian second” stand and the ignominous trouncing of Najib’s 1Malaysia policy in less than four years.
It was in March 2010 that I challenged Muhyiddin and all the Cabinet Ministers at the time whether they fully supported Najib’s 1Malaysia Policy, reminding them that the goal of 1Malaysia as spelt out by the 1Malaysia Government Transformation Programme Roadmap was “to make Malaysia ….a greater nation: a nation where, it is hoped, every Malaysian perceives himself or herself as Malaysian first, and by race, religion, geographical region or socio-economic background second and where the principles of 1Malaysia are woven into the economic, political and social fabric of society”."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The world condemned and ended Apartheid ( a system of discrimination based on race) in South Africa in 1990. On 2013/9/14 Malaysia PM Najib re-started a RM31 billion BEEP which is race-based discriminatory policy to help only Bumiputra in this multiracial nation. Can the civilized world accept this type of Apartheid-like policy in Malaysia in modern world???
“To many Malaysians, even ethnic Malays, Mr Najib has sacrificed political principles to save his job. His campaigning slogan of ‘1 Malaysia’, emphasising racial harmony, now rings hollow.”
In keeping with the new Bumiputera plan, the “stuttering” Malaysian economy would now have to raise enough money for the programme. The Chinese and Indian communities here would likely continue leaving the country, “disgusted” by the “overt racism of it all”. “And the country’s stated goal of becoming a prosperous economy by 2020 will recede further,” The Economist wrote.
“To many Malaysians, even ethnic Malays, Mr Najib has sacrificed political principles to save his job." A leader that sacrificed his political principle IS NOT CREDIBLE anymore!!!! What do you think?
