I would like to congratulate Wan Saiful Wan Jan for his straight forward article on the NEM, Perkasa and Malay competitiveness.
Dalam kesempatan ini saya sebenarnya mahu mengulas mengenai tindakan pihak-pihak seperti Perkasa dan Datuk Ibrahim Ali yang seolah-olah sengaja mahu menggagalkan usaha Datuk Seri Najib Razak untuk mentransformasi negara.
Saya amat marah dengan mereka ini kerana mereka berselindung dengan nama Melayu untuk menghina dan memperkecil-kecilkan orang Melayu. Dengan bertopengkan nama Melayu, mereka bersuka ria menuduh orang Melayu tidak boleh bersaing dan tidak boleh maju jika tidak dihulurkan tongkat seumur hidup. Lemah sungguh Melayu di mata mereka!
The writer should not be surprised by the action of the opportunists in Perkasa, especially Ibrahim Ali.
Politicians like Ibrahim Ali need a weak and meek Malay community to help them stay relevant in politics. A weak and meek Malay community needs to look up to people like Ibrahim to protect their rights and interests. Hence, Ibrahim and his gang will do whatever they can to convince the Malays that they are weak, meek and ought to be protected.
People such as Ibrahim are the biggest hindrance to capacity building and civilisation of the Malay community. It is timely for the Malays to dump leaders like Ibrahim. In the globalised world, the measurement used to measure a Malay and a Chinese or an European is the same one. The world will respect those with the right ability, skills and contribution.
Malaysians regardless of race should put their own personal development as the top priority and not colour of skin.
I applaud Wan Saiful for saying NO to opportunists such as Ibrahim Ali. Of all the people, a Malay like Ibrahim does not need any protection or special privileges. Help and assistance should be given to the needy ones.
