Utusan: May 13 a sacred day for Malaysia
Published on: November 20, 2010 at 11:55 AM

An editorial in Umno’s Utusan Malaysia on Nov 10 described the May 13, 1969 racial riots as a sacred day for Malaysia and warned DAP to recognise its significance. The newspaper’s deputy editor-in-chief Zaini Hassan said in his weekly column that the riots were a blessing in disguise, otherwise “wealthy businesses and the professional classes would be controlled by one race only.” He also credited the riots with overseas scholarships for Bumiputeras and businessmen.

Zaini pointed out that the DAP Penang state government had acted unjustly against state Opposition Leader Datuk Azhar Ibrahim, suspending him from the Penang assembly for citing the May 13 incident in his speech. “Why is Lim Guan Eng so afraid of people using the historical word May 13? It is a sacred day in the country, because of that day the people of various races in the country could be restructured to be more peaceful and prosperous,” said Zaini.

“Because of that day, the New Economic Policy was formulated,” he added. Zaini added that “if DAP is fated to rule Malaysia (May Allah protect us) the ISA (Internal Security Act) will be strengthened.” The May 13 riots that took place after the 1969 general election resulted in a declaration of a state of Emergency and the suspension of Parliament. It remains the country’s bloodiest race clash with hundreds reportedly killed in rioting mainly between Malay and Chinese groups. In the general election that year the Umno-led Alliance lost its two-thirds majority in Parliament.

It was later replaced by the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition with many opposition parties joining the three original Alliance members of Umno, MCA and MIC. Two years after the riots, the government introduced the New Economic Policy (NEP) to address the economic divisions that had been blamed for the clashes. Early this month Azhar was suspended for six months from the state assembly after he refused to retract allegedly seditious remarks made at an assembly sitting earlier this year.

Azhar, who is Penaga assemblyman, was accused of uttering apparently seditious words and issuing May 13 threats during a speech in the assembly by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on May 7. He had warned of May 13-style racial riots and suggested the army take over the functions of the police if the latter had lost the confidence of the people. The Umno man was referred to the assembly’s Rights and Privileges Committee after a motion tabled by Jagdeep Singh Deo (DAP-Datuk Keramat).

The suspension had been recommended by Lim and conveyed to the assembly by Speaker Datuk Abdul Halim Hussain. However Zaini claimed today that the DAP's opposition to the pro-Bumiputera New Economic Policy (NEP) had resulted in the party’s attempt to erase the May 13 riot from national history. “I am not sure if DAP hates the NEP so much that it refuses to hear the date May 13 being mentioned,” said Zaini. “Guan Eng should not have been so fast in punishing the opposition leader. Azhar is much needed in the Guan Eng administration for check and balance,” he added.

Zaini also called on Azhar to propose to the federal government to educate students on May 13. “Azhar should have also suggested to the Malaysian government for the sacred day May 13 to be incorporated in the compulsory Malaysian History subject,” said Zaini. “Therefore, if the May 13 ‘volcanic eruption’ did not take place in 1969 in Chow Kit Road and Kampung Baru, it could have erupted anytime now if not handled well,” said Zaini. “If it happens, it would be in bigger magnitude and more terrifying,” he added. — Malaysian Insider

Hardly a week passes without any racial comment made by Malays and a racist one at that. SERVANTS OF OTHERS??? Really?? How so???

Dr M: Divided Malays risk facing a dim future

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malays will remain weak and their future dim if they continue to be divided by different political ideologies, said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said the Malay community is in a weak position because they are now divided into three groups, namely Umno, PAS and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

“The present situation will inevitably affect our future,” he said at a “Discourse with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on the Malays and Their Future” held at the Tun Hussein Onn Memorial, here, on Monday.

Dr Mahathir said Malay unity was challenged the first time with the setting up of PAS, a breakaway group from Umno.

“However, we could still control the political situation in the country then, but many (from Umno) who were disappointed later formed other splinter parties like Semangat 46 and PKR.

On how to unite the Malays, Dr Mahathir said: “It’s easy, knock Nik Aziz (Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat) and Anwar (PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) on their heads because they are the ones who brought the disease”.

Dr Mahathir also described the efforts to unite the Malays as coming to a dead end as the two leaders had no desire to see it happen.

“Their intentions are just to secure a place, Anwar with his intention to capture Putrajaya while Nik Aziz is an opportunist,’’ he said.

“When we were poor and weak and had no status, we knew that only unity could give us strength. But today, when we are better off, some feel there is no need for unity; so we end up fighting among ourselves,” added Dr Mahathir.

The former premier said there were also Malays who were so confident of being able to stand on their own that they rejected the New Economic Policy which was created to assist them.

“There are those who say there’s no need to be identified with the Malays, that ‘we are Malaysians, we can reject efforts to help us, we want to throw away the crutch and we want to stand on our own’, without realising that they are still ‘limping’,” he said.

On the issue of Malay supremacy, Dr Mahathir said Malays need not continue claiming that they were “masters”, when in fact they were the “servants” of others. — Bernama
