Ketuanan Melayu and the NEP


Ketuanan Melayu and NEP in its meaning and purpose have all been deliberately misrepresented,misintepreted and diabolically branded as racist by those with personal agendas for selfish gains.Events in for example countries like Rwanda, Serbia (proceeding the break up of Yugoslavia),Lebanon,India,Zimbabwe,Belgium and others have shown that when the dominant race,religion or sect does not rule or left out of the mainstream administration it is a sure-fire recipe for disaster. We have been very fortunate that the majority of the rakyat understand this,that the Malays must rule. All previous Governments since Merdeka thru its 3 dominant race party coalition (presently expanded), have been successful with a power sharing formula in the modernisation, progress and the preservation of the sovereignty of the nation until now. The coalition with UMNO as the dominant partner had always ruled in consensus, which had confounded many other nations to the point of envy and admiration, in its ability to bring about peace and prosperity among the races.It is only the reckless that questions this status of the dominant race for personal interests or political mileage.While the NEP has brought about the necessary reforms to raise the living standard and greater economic share of industry of the Malays including the ethnic bumiputras,its purpose has been made an issue to the other races but only as I said because of the manipulation by those with hidden agendas. As for me,my issue is only its proper implementation to benefit all quid pro quo.With regards to Ketuanan Melayu, I have no issue except its exhaltation and expression should be in way that will not bring about misconception and fear among its other brother races.
