In Support of Tengku Razaleigh, End Race-based Parties

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah lashed out at Umno today over its strident position on the “Allah” controversy, pointing out that the party was bent on fanning communal sentiment and digging itself into an intolerant hardline position with no parallel in the Muslim world.

He also suggested that racially-based parties should no longer be allowed to contest elections in multiracial Malaysia.

Tengku Razaleigh or more popularly known as 'Kuli' should walk his talk by walking out of UMNO, a racially based party.

By doing do, it will catalyst a new movement calling for an end of racially based parties in the country.

A nation at a crossroads like Malaysia needs wise, decisive and bold leaders such Kuli to help this chart its course.

Will Kuli walk his talk? Or just like previously, still maintaining his loyalty to a party digging itself into an intolerant hard-line position that has no parallel in the Muslim world?

Just leave Ku Li alone to throw stones. He is still loyal to UMNO and the attachment is too strong to let-go, so let him be.

I fully support Tengku's views. If only more politicians are like him, Malaysia will be a more prosperous and peaceful country.

Words of wisdom from an experienced politicial but alas it fell on deaf ears within his own beloved party.
KuLi thought he could bring about change from within but this is not to be. Metaphorically speaking, years of dependence on corruption and lust for power has made UMNO members addicted to the stuff.

Anyone or Anything that wants to take away these drugs will be rejected by UMNO. Kuli would be better doing his part by leaving BN.
